In the beginning God created man to take control and rule over every other living creature in the land. water. air and beyond. Later on God found out that man needed a helper or in other words some one who can assist him in his daily activities. then made He woman from the rib of man. Gen.2: 18 And the LORD God said. It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. Man was created with so much power and authority. Man was created in Gods own image. that is to say that man is a demy-god. In Gods original plan. man was created to live like God without dieing as stated in Psalm 118:17 I shall non die. but live. and declare the works of the LORD. Man was not supposed to die. Even if man were to die. man was supposed to live long and die at a very ripe age. Psalm 91: 16 says With long life will I satisfy him. and show him my salvation.” Exactly that was Gods original design and plan for man. His (God) plan was for men to inhabit the earth. plant it. take care of the stock freely given to him. and live life to the fullest. (Isaiah 65:21-25). If God had all these good plans for us. why then do men die young? This write up is going to take an in debt look astatine several reasons why men die young despite Gods plan for us to live long and happily too. These reasons are treated here with Human understanding and with references to some scriptural portions that will help elucidate these points.
(a) Generational Curses: God cursed Man after the fall of man. Man sinned against God by feeding the forbidden fruit and as a result God cursed man in Gen. 3:17-19(And unto Adam helium said. Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife. and hast eaten of the tree. of which I commanded thee. saying. Thou shall not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shall thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shall eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shall thou eat bread. till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art. and unto dust shall thou return). Because of this generational curse. men die before their time because of sins of their forefathers. In Ezekiel 18:2 it states that the father has eaten sour grapes and the children teeth set on edge. It is not surprising then why men die today as a result of sins of their fathers.
(b) Curses from Women: These years its common to see boys and girls piquant in premarital sex without knowing what they are going into. A lot of men promise marriage to most ladies just to have access in between their legs and once they have them they start singing another(a) song. Most men today are suffering from curses placed on them by women they had flings with. When you use a woman and dump her and she tells you. it will never be well with you. you will suffer. God will punish you etc. Such curses go a long way in touching men and a lot of men have ended up frustrated in life and eventually died as a result of such curses. Many men will still have shattered dreams and die untimely too as a result of this. The truth is that when you make love with a woman. you have a hidden covenant with her. which makes those curses work faster.
(c) Demonic Covenants: Like I said above when you make love to a woman. you have a hidden concordat with her. Most men cannot live without having sex; some go to the extent of carrying strange women in the street to satisfy their sexual urges. Most of these ladies have demons controlling them and in most cases their aim is to destroy men and steal their glories. Many men die and will still die as a result of entering into unknown demonic covenants with agents of darkness who ar out to destroy men.
(d) Wrong Marriage: Marriage is an institution ordained in heaven. The bible says a man will leave his father and mother and cling to his wife and both of them shall become one. When you get matrimonial to a woman. she becomes the same person with you. The woman you marry can build you up or kill you untimely. The worst thing that can happen to a man is to marry the wrong woman. There are no two ways about it. if you marry the wrong woman; its only the grace of God that can save you from untimely death. Imagine what happens to you when you marry a wife that you beat every time. and she keeps on cursing you? That is a sure way to the gate of death.
(e) Wrong Friends: Some men are born with golden spoons in their mouths. Some ar born from very good homes with good moral upbringing. but bad friends influence and lead them to their untimely deaths. Go to our universities today. most of the young men killed in cult wars ar always from good homes. but they are always influenced by bad friends to join cults. Most armed robbers killed today were not into it because of hunger but peer influences and they end up losing their lives carelessly.
(f) Greed and Covetousness: Greed is another(a) thing that kills men like wild fire. You do business with your friend; he becomes greedy and wants to take all the profit alone. Many men have died because of greed and covetousness. Love of money has destroyed many men. no wonder the bible says the love of money is the root of all evil.
(g) Breaking Gods covenant and living without God: Breaking Gods concordat is another(a) main point that kills men fast. God for sure is a patient God. merciful and kind. but if you break Gods concordat or start serving other gods. it is an express way to untimely death as one is exposed to the devil. Joshua 24:20 says. “If ye forsake the LORD. and serve strange gods. then helium will turn and do you hurt. and consume you. after that he hath through you good.”
(h) Stress: Men are always exposed to too much stress. Men are always thinking of their families. job. home. investment. career. marriage. business. etc. Inability to manage the pressure from these quarters and calm the storm of life by handling your life pressures normally lead to most men dieing young.
(i) Unhealthy Living: Most men dont eat well; when they eat they eat unbalanced diet. Some times you see some men drinking from morning to night without feeding any tangible food. Most working class men due to work pressure dont have time to go for lunch and may go back home without having their lunch. The truth is that breakfast. lunch or dinner each has a role to play in our systems. Most men also do not rest well or even sleep well because of stress or work pressure. The truth of the matter is that men who dont eat well. rest well and sleep well are likely to die young.
(j) Prosperity Seeking in an ungodly way: In the present world where young men want to get rich quick. most young men enter into occultism and exchange their lives for money. Many men today are just interested in making money and acquiring rich without minding how the money is made and the consequences of making the quick money. which is untimely or sudden death.
(k) Ignorance: Ignorance they say is the worst disease that kills as fast as any thing you can think of. Most men are dieing today because they are ignorant of these facts and points discussed here. The truth is that most men will still die carelessly and young if they do not embrace these simple but plain truth about why men die young.
