infant of days

This is so cool! Digging through more old studies 🙂

I’ve written before on the difference between A CHILD and A SON. This is something that I’ve been talking about for several years now…. but in all that time I never once looked at this verse is Isaiah:

Isa 65:20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.

I knew that my friend had talked about it before and I’ve always meant to go back and look at it again, but I just never did… and, clearly, I did not have the same “light bulb” moment when she shared it with me the first time or I never would have left it out of my own studies on the subject. When digging through a bunch of old files I found one of her old posts that I saved…. AND WOW!!! NOW I GET IT!!! 🙂

The following is a response from my friend Kim on an old forum we used to hang out at (one of many LOL) in response to a question about what happens when infants die. Will they still be little when we arrive on the other side? Do they stop aging or do they age slower? Do they age as they would here? Do they remain children for eternity?

The reply (my comments will be in color, if I add any… I did so on my paper copy and may include them here, too):


I don’t see it the same way (surprise right?) I again see this in Christ through a picture of Abraham, I truly believe it speaks of Him on the Cross delivering us from “the child” (Child dies) and given a Son, the marker of an hundred years lands on Abraham who Christ said saw “my day” and was glad. Child dying an hundred years is as our old man (shown as are ye not carnal a babe verses spiritual a son) it’s twofold.

Compare the verse you posted underlining “infant of days”, “old man”, “child shall die” and “an hundred years” old… look at Abraham and see “Christ’s exchange on the Cross”.

Gen 17:17 Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall A CHILD be born unto HIM that is AN HUNDRED YEARS OLD? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?

Abraham says CHILD God says SON and to an OLD MAN

{WOW!!! Ever notice that??? Abraham says CHILD, but God says SON and to an OLD MAN!! You really have to understand the difference between A CHILD and A SON, to “get” THIS!! This is why it is written A CHILD “is born”, A SON “is given”. It is GOD who “gives” THE SON… the SON is born OF GOD!!}

Gen 17:19 And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a SON INDEED; and thou shalt call his name ISAAC: and I will establish my covenant with HIM for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed “”” after HIM “”” (children of the flesh are not counted as seed)

{Children of the flesh are not counted as the seed… BUT that which is “born of the flesh” COMES “first”. As Paul points out, “the first man is of the earth”. That is why Jesus said this first, natural, carnal, mortal man “must be” BORN AGAIN. It is “the second man” who is born of the Spirit, born of God, created in the image and likeness of God… it is the second man who is A SON… indeed, THE PROMISED SEED… THE SON OF GOD!}

Isaiah 65:20 There shall be NO MORE thence an infant of days, nor an OLD MAN that hath not FILLED HIS DAYS: for THE CHILD shall DIE an HUNDRED YEARS OLD; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be “accursed”. (See Gal 3:13)

Abraham says CHILD, God says a SON and that of an OLD MAN. The CHILD shall DIE HUNDRED YEARS OLD is the exact time a SON is given Abraham (the promise given to Abraham is spoken of coming to us)

On the Cross itself He said to Mary (in type) Woman, BEHOLD THY SON. Christ dying was to DELIVER and be delivered of THAT – of a CHILD (under the law), no different then a servant. Delivered of a CHILD that a MAN should be born. I see these as spiritual truths concerning “NO MORE Children BUT SONS

{I talk about that in some of my other studies on the difference between A CHILD and A SON. Paul used himself as an example as one who “travailed in birth” (in order to be “delivered of the child”). I never noticed the same image presented in Heb 11, concerning Sarah.}

Heb 11:11 Through “faith” also Sara herself “received strength” to conceive SEED, and was DELIVERED OF a CHILD WHEN she was PAST AGE, because she judged him faithful who had promised.

Heb 11:17 By faith Abraham, “when he was tried”, offered up ISAAC: and he that had received the promises offered up HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON,

{So what about Ishmael?? This seems to go right back to the fact that “the flesh IS NOT COUNTED for the seed”!! I’ve talked about this before when talking about Cain and “the generations of Adam in the day that God created man in the image of God” (Gen 5)… where CAIN IS NOT COUNTED!!! And “here” we see ISHMAEL IS NOT COUNTED!! WOW!!!! Now we understand WHY!!}

See the twofold in their declaration

“For Unto us a CHILD is BORN unto us a SON is GIVEN

On the Cross THE CHILD DIED , and there a SON was GIVEN

Thus the saying…


The sinner an hundred years old after prophecy in picture in accordance with child/son and Christ made sin for us that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. The sinner is accursed… “He taketh away the sin of the world” your sins have returned unto me for I have redeemed thee.

Gal 3:13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, cursed is every one that hangeth upon a tree:

I just don’t see infants turning 100 years old after a carnal truth they must be seen in Him in accordance their pictures and somehow validate not nullify the apostles.

AMEN!!!! Again, I have to just say… I MISS MY OLD STUDY PARTNER!!! I am STILL learning SO MUCH from you!!! I am going to look at this some more and maybe even add my own study to it – though I see nothing at all lacking here!!! I hope you all enjoy this stuff I am sharing as much as I am… because I am going to KEEP DIGGING through all of these files I saved!! 🙂 

All Blessings in Christ!



About Christine

My name is Christine and since my favorite past-time, the one that I find the most fulfilling, is studying the scriptures and seeking to know and understand "the deep things of God", I have created this blog as a place to not only post my own bible studies but as a way to connect with others who are are also seeking the Lord and the Truth. I've posted some of my studies on other websites and haven't yet decided if I will post them here, as well, or if I will just post future blogs/studies here. We'll see. Thanks for stopping by and please do so again... maybe after I get something posted. :) ALL BLESSINGS IN CHRIST!!

    Hello Christine. As you must know, eveyr single person every born physically is to become Jesus. But mankind as a whole grows up over many eons of time, by an evolutionary method in the world. Today we have enough knowledge about worldly things, in Christian nations at least, to put away childish, immature, and imaginary beliefs about devils,demons, sun gods, sea gods, witches, etc.. They are destroyed by the knowledge God has established in mankind over many eons. The day of “light” or understanding. Natural man is the child, and the child dies to “maturity in Christ” or adulthood, at “100” years old. Arbitrary number. When the person is mature, the child has “perished” even though the same body lives as a mature SON of GOD. The mature Son is Jesus every time, and the “sinner” that was the “child” spiritually, is “dead” but lives as Jesus who does no sin {any more}. And, the physical body of the old man that is no more, has served it’s purpose of being the grown vehicle that brings forth Jesus the mature Son of God in the creation. That mature son, as many many vessels who are all one spirit, one mind, and as one person \ body, are the gardener God finally puts in charge of the whole universe to make it all alive in holiness and peace. We all have suffered with the “birthing” of the mature Jesus from the beginning of time in the creation until the mature CHrist Jesus is in the world as the LORD and GOD in him has put all things under HIS feet. His feet are the picture of “the way to become and know the truth unto the Life by being THE LIFE that is the father of ALL LIVING. The life n us has been suffering with us to bring us unto this maturity. Much like the life in a human baby has to endure the ignorance and weakness and immaturity of the baby in order to bring the baby to the maturity of an adult. Thus, the life in us has been maligned and misused for all time up to today in the error that is caused by us believing God is like man is in the world..Sin and the sinner who teaches about God as if GOD was like man, doing both good and evil, is the devll, the fals witness, and the child that takes milk. {1 Corinthians 3:1= 3}

    1Co 3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.
    1Co 3:2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.
    1Co 3:3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men? {today’s denominations are the fulfillment of these words}
    1Co 3:4 For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal?

    Until 1 Corinthians 3:12 – 16 and 2 Corinthians 2:6.

    1Co 3:12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
    1Co 3:13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.
    1Co 3:14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
    1Co 3:15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
    1Co 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
    2Co 3:5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;
    2Co 3:6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
    2Co 3:7 But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory WAS TO BE DONE AWAY.
    2Co 3:8 How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?

    This fact that GOD caused the deep sleep to be upon the man while the WOMAN was and still is being made or formed is the basis for understanding the whole scriptures correctly with the ability to divide the wheat from the tares. Both good and evil is in all at birth, but we know that scripture says it is {only} every GOOD THING in us is of God.
    “”Good words you write, glad to see them, we are in the DAWN and more, of the prophesied DAY that was to come and now is here.
    God bless in the love of Christ. Ken Sheck.

  3. Ken Sheck says:

    When Scripture says that all things are to be put under Christ Jesus’ feet “by God”, it includes the understanding of all the words of scripture according to THE way to know THE truth about THE LIFE that Jesus witnessed. It has NO VIOLENCE in it at all, no wrath, no un-forgiveness, no anger, no vengeance, and so on. THey are all those that shall be destroyed BY LOVE which is everything eternal life is.
    God is Lord meaning puts all things subject to Himself. God is Life, and Life is love and all things that love is. Therefore, for God, {life and love} to win and conquer all that is contrary to life in love, it is only the attributes and wisdom of Love that can be used to “overcome all enemies” of love. In other words, Love has to be what “wins” and nothing that is not of love can not be used or love alone would not be the winner” or in our case, LORD of ALL. God bless. Ken
