Live Long and Prosper!

"Live Long and Prosper!"
Day Fourteen: "Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers." (NKJV)
Some of you perhaps may remember the original NBC-TV Series entitled, "Star Trek" which aired in the late 1960s and is still in syndication today. I was always fascinated by the character with the funny ears named, "Mr. Spock." Mr. Spock was the Science Officer on the Starship Enterprise. Mr. Spock would often greet the other characters with an interesting hand sign along with his customary Vulcan greeting, "Live Long and Prosper!" As we look back in retrospect at shows like Star Trek and the Jetsons, we can see just how prophetic they were for the times in which we are currently living.

Well long before Mr. Spock, Captain Kirk, and Scotty from Star Trek came along, there was a generous Christian believer whose name was "Gaius". Here in III John, the writer (Apostle John) greets and also commends Gaius for his faithfulness and generosity. Within the Apostle's greeting, he speaks a prayer of blessing over the life of Gaius. What did this prayer of blessing consist of and how does this apply to our lives in this present age?


The Apostle John prays that Gaius would prosper in all respects of his life. The word prosper "euodoo" in this context means "to have a successful and expeditious journey" in all aspects of one's life. That's our prayer for one another in this new year! We need God to grant success to His people as we seek to advance His Kingdom purpose for our lives--every facet of our lives. As we prepare for this "last leg" of the 21 Day Journey together let us truly pray for one another to experience this magnificent blessing that the Apostle John prayed over the life of Gaius.

Good Health

The second part of the prayer focuses on the health and well-being of Gaius. The Apostle John is speaking good health and strength over the life of his fellow believer, just as his soul prospers. For many that have been fasting and praying with us during this 21 Day Journey, you should already begin to see tremendous health benefits as your body, soul, and spirit receive renewal and cleansing. 

Finally, as we enter the last seven (days) of this journey, please remember that the adversary will do all within his limited scope of power to discourage you from continuing in prayer and consecration. We declare that not only is he a liar, but we decree this is the week of the devil's defeat! Let's press in to God's presence like never before on this week and seek the face of our Father in a mighty way. I believe that we are positioning ourselves for a mighty powerful move of God on this week.
Have a good evening and a restful Sunday night!
My simple prayer for you tonight is this: "May you live long upon the earth and prosper in the work He has assigned unto your hands, in Jesus' name, Amen!

It’s a very good thing to live with the will that has been the only desire of your life. On the other side when you are having a good proposal you are sure to make the decision that is good for the future.

Our wellbeing has a great deal to do with dealing with our level of pressure. Specifically, we have a tendency to invest a ton of time and vitality worrying over cash and material belonging.

It is really great to know fun facts about Star Trek. It is amazing to see that Mr. Spock has someone similar to him in the bible. Maybe Mr. Spock was really based on that Gaius, the guy the always speak of prosperity. It is not impossible for a character to be based on someone from a bible. Maybe the script writers are somehow religious. We would not really know, but it would be safe to assume that Mr. Spock does have similarities with Gaius.
