however, the deepest, ultimate fulfillment of this promise remains. All those who, by grace, are obedient to their heavenly Father shall be blessed with long life (eternal life) in the land which the LORD their God shall give them (the heavenly Canaan).

Outwardly, God also confirms the truth of the promise contained in the fifth commandment. God blesses organizations and nations that live in peace and that unitedly respect their proper authorities. He cuts short the life and peace of a nation that defies and rebels against its own government.

Are you daily praying for grace, and striving to walk honorably -to honor God as Father of all; to honor your fathers at home and church; to honor your fathers placed as rulers in government and business; and to honor those who are your fathers in age?

May God grant you the necessary enabling grace, that you may partake in His eternal rewarding grace.

Who were the Rechabites mentioned in Jeremiah 35? Why did God richly bless them? See verses 18 and 19.

And Jeremiah said unto the house of the Rechabites, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Because ye have obeyed the commandment of Jonadab your father, and kept all his precepts, and done according unto all that he hath commanded you:.

Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Jonadab the son of Rechab shall not want a man to stand before Me forever.

- Jeremiah 35:18-19
