God never gives an order or law that isn't for the good of man. No matter if you go to church every Sunday, give to the poor, how many prayers you say GOD DEMANDS YOUR OBEDIENCE. It's impossible to break God's laws of nature without reaping the effects. Unhappiness, bad health, mental tensions, death and eternal separation from God are the results of breaking His spiritual laws.
If Adam and Eve just obeyed God and didn't eat the fruit from the forbidden tree the world we be so different right now. I like to give examples of myself because I was definitely one to disobey God. If He said go right I'd go left, if He said don't jump off that bridge I probably would've done it anyway (just kidding). I just didn't like listening to rules and being told what to do, but rules are important. If you didn't know already Bible stands for Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. It's important that we follow what the Bible says because it has instructions on how to live life on this Earth, remember that Earth is only temporary.
Obeying God is important because it keeps us from danger.
So a sister in Christ had Direct Messaged me a question on Twitter:
Her: I just wanted to know what's your view of a born again Christian going to parties ? Like events and stuff turn ups basically but with no engagement of alcohol or anything like that .. Do you feel it's better to just stay at home because the turn up environment isn't right for a Child of God ? Because I know the Bible says stay away from things that may lead you to sin.
Me: All they offer is weed alcohol and secular music. The Holy Spirit doesn't wanna be in that kind of environment. Even if you tell yourself oh I'm not gonna drink and smoke what's the point of being there, why put yourself in a tempting situation? You're better off just staying at home.
So she was arguing with God because she really wanted to go out had got a new outfit, makeup and everything.
Her: If I would have went something bad would have happened to me or I would have died and that would have been caused BY NOT LISTENING TO HIM. Because remember it's dangerous not to listen when God speaks to you. He spoke to me through my heart and mind in my sleep. Even though I was unconscious , my spirit was awake. I could feel myself fighting Him and justifying to Him that it's not like I drink or smoke so there's no harm in going. But nah Father wasn't going with my justification hay. The next day (day of the party). I spent almost my entire day in my room watching Christian movies , and came maybe 10pm I think it was , I started shaking and screaming and crying. Praying too. But it wasn't my usual cry - what was happening was the Holy Spirit was entering me in full. And from that night I started getting visions in my sleep , God started to tell me to give specific people messages from Him And so on So if I had done my own will and went partying that night : 1 . Something bad was gonna happen to me 2. I would have never received the Holy Ghost.
The worst result of disobeying God is eternal separation from Him. Rejecting God is disobeying God because you know right but still do wrong. Rejecting God is choosing an eternity away from Him which is hell.
The Christian has to learn to obey God. Mostly all the difficulties Christians suffer come from disobedience. If you have disobeyed, ask His forgiveness and then commence to bring every thought into the obedience of Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:5- These weapons can break down every proud argument against God and every wall that can be built to keep men from finding him. With these weapons I can capture rebels and bring them back to God and change them into men whose hearts’ desire is obedience to Christ.)
Right now in your walk with God is there a way you're disobeying Him?
