Scripture Reading: ZECHARIAH 4: 1-9


“And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.” (Zechariah 4: 3)

In our Focal Scripture, Zechariah saw a vision of two olive trees which were on either side of the golden lampstand. According to agriculturists, the olive tree may live for as long as a thousand years. it is not the kind of tree that will go down early. The olive tree has in it the gene of longevity. Literally, it is not the sort of tree that would die young. It is not the sort of tree that expires early. The olive tree has a trait of longevity.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: I decree over your life that you are blessed with the trait of longevity. You will not be cut short in your prime. You will not die untimely. You will not be counted amongst them that never lived to a ripe old age. You will not be swallowed. You will not enter into any grave that the enemy has made for you. You will not be swallowed by any disaster. You will not die another man’s death.

Hear me as I hear the Lord: the covenant of exemption is upon you. You will survive and escape every evil plot against your life. You will not go down on account of those who have been seeking a chance to cut down your destiny. You will not go down on account of ill health. You will not go down on account of tragedy. You will not go down because of another man’s mistake. You will not be counted amongst them that died untimely.

In 2023 and beyond, untimely death is not your portion. You will not bury and you will not be buried. People will not gather around you to mourn. Things and people that are connected to you will also enjoy the mantle of longevity. Your business will outlive you; your career will outlive you; your ministry will outlive you; your results will outlive you; your ideas and visions will experience the trait of longevity.

Welcome to that season of your life where longevity will be your second name. Welcome to that season where nothing will die in you and around you.


The blessing on longevity is upon me; I will not bury and I will not be buried, in Jesus’ name!
