I don't think so. It eliminates the concept of free will. A number of Far-Eastern religions believe that we have a pre-appointed time of death, but it's not a Christian thing.

But God does know when you will die. He knew when you were to be born, and He knows when you will die.

 

That's a bit different to an appointed time.

One thing I know and am sure of.

He will call me home in HIS time, not my time or a doctors time. 

 

Joh 14:27  Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Amen Nigel! Sitting at His feet. Imagine!

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:                                     Ecclesiastes 3:1

 I believe because God knows  the time that one could say it is an appointed time

 

To Everything There is a Season
1There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven-- 2A time to give birth and a time to die; A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.…                                                                                                   Context,,,,,Biblehub

He has created us in Christ Jesus for good works which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Eph 2:10 I imagine that as we are still doing whatever works that He has appointed for us, we will be enabled to continue to do them until such time as He calls us home.

Ecc. 3:1-2 To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven:

A time to be born

And a time to die;

So I believe that we were created for a purpose, that we came into the world to fulfill that purpose and believers will remain to glorify God, or will die to bring Him glory. Either way we shall be with Him for eternity.

The unrepentant will never know the joy and fulfillment of walking with God, but may be used by God in spite of themselves as vessels of dishonor, as was Judas and king Saul.

Hummm. I see you beat me to it again, Kwik. Blessings anyhow.

Interesting. So if you believe God has set an appointed time for us to die (which is what I am reading?), do you then think He has set the way we should die as well?

 

And if you are going to use the Ecc scripture as your arguments that God has set us a time to die, do you think He has set for us a time to laugh and a time to cry, etc? My point being is dying has a set point in time, it can't be anything else. Do you think our laughter is also prearranged in such a fashion, as is our mourning?

I do think there is a set time we die but only God knows this time, we need to be ready for this time because of us not knowing it.

Psalm 139:16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,The days fashioned for me,

When as yet there were none of them.

Yes,God knows exactly when,where and how we will die.A person who commits suicide causes his own death so that person would have lived longer if he/she would not have taken their own life.We can also have an impact on our time of death.For example a person who smokes,drinks heavily or takes drugs can have an impact on their death.
