    Does the Lord know when our time to die will be from the time of our conception?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Jeremiah 10
    I couldn't find the one that says our death is recorded.

    Jeremiah 1:5

    Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

    Jeremiah 20:17

    Because he slew me not from the womb; or that my mother might have been my grave,

    Hosea 12:3

    For there are some eunuchs, which I were so born from their mother's womb (birth defects) and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men (forced celibacy) and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs (celibate)for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.

    Psalms 139:16

    Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

    Psalms 116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD [is] the death of his saints.

    Genesis 27:2

    And he said, Behold now, I am old, I know not the day of my death:

    Psalms 48:14

    For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death
  • Chris - in Reply on Jeremiah 10
    God does indeed know all about us, even from before we were conceived to the exact time we will die. Even an untimely death will not take Him by surprise, for all things are known by Him.

    See: Isaiah 46:9,10; Jeremiah 1:4,5; Psalms 139:13-16.

    Yet, many live in fear of when their end may come. For the one who has put his/her trust in the Lord Jesus, death brings no fear - has no sting. It's simply a transition from this life to the one God has prepared for those who love Him. Many over the years welcomed death at the hands of their tormentors: the wicked one might have vented his anger against the Christian, but the Christian looked beyond to the welcoming Arms of the One Who first laid down His Life for him.
