    God is not speaking to the ignorant. He speaks to Israel His chosen peaple. God Himself is persuading you not to be rebellious. He is reminding you and showing you what He has done for you.So that you will see that your way leads to destruction. Do you not know that we eat the bread that was ment for Isreal ?And by His mercies ,we are called to be Holy.

    Lursha, you can do nothing unless God allows it. There is no power in the human body that is not autonomic. You do not have to concentrate to make your blood circulate throughout your body, or focus so your brain will control all bodily needs. When it comes right down to it without God you would not only cease, but disintegrate.God is so essential to life that all things continue by Him, even you. Colossians 2:17 "And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist ". Even Satan who deceives mankind on a daily basis has his life because of God. You don 't want to make a bad choice like him or you will spend eternity in the lake of fire with him. Give God a chance to show you the truth and receive His son Jesus as your savior and you will understand what I am talking about. You questioned what happens after death, well you can only turn your eternal destiny around by asking Jesus to save you. John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him I am the way the truth and the life, no man cometh unto the Father but by me ". If you continue as you are, you will end up in the lake of fire with Satan and everybody else that chose to ignore God. If you would like to go to heaven, leave me a message on this chapter, I will check it each day, your life is worth it. God made salvation simple, so we could get it. I will show you from the word of God no opinions needed.

    God is a loving father that does not want any backslider to perish but looks for different ways to restore such back to the fold.However, if he or she rejects the way through which God wants to restore him or her to the fold; such a person will surely perish.
  • Lurshai
    i just ignore GOD in my daily life, and feel proud that i can take care of all my needs by myself.but after death what will happen ?
  • Emily Ateku
    People are taking things for granted. We need to turn to the lord and seek his face to avoid what is happening in today's life.
