Firstly I rightfully do not endorse Christians trying to make money of the gospel, asking for money or any of the adds, or the Bibles, books, tapes listed here for sale too..


Amazing Grace How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me? 
Mercy is God's unmerited favor  AND Grace is God's conditional personally empowering presence
(James 4:6 KJV)  But he giveth more GRACE. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth GRACE unto the humble. (Gal 5:4 KJV)  Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
Jesus said  “my Grace is My Power at work in your weakness.”  (2 Cor 12:9 KJV)  And he said unto me, My GRACE is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
(1 John 3:1 KJV)  Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. 2  Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 3  And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
(Rom 6:16 KJV)  Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
(Isa 30:18 KJV)  And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him. 19  For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee. 20  And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers: 21  And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left. 22  Ye shall defile also the covering of thy graven images of silver, and the ornament of thy molten images of gold: thou shalt cast them away as a menstruous cloth; thou shalt say unto it, Get thee hence. 23  Then shall he give the rain of thy seed, that thou shalt sow the ground withal; and bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous: in that day shall thy cattle feed in large pastures. 24  The oxen likewise and the young asses that ear the ground shall eat clean provender, which hath been winnowed with the shovel and with the fan. 25  And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. 26  Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.
Galatians 1:3-7 Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. I marvel that you are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
Ephesians 2:8-10 For by grace are you saved through faith: and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them.
(1 Pet 4:10 KJV)  As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold GRACE of God.
(Luke 2:40 KJV)  And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the GRACE of God was upon him.
(John 1:14 KJV)  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of GRACE and truth.
(John 1:16 KJV)  And of his fulness have all we received, and GRACE for GRACE.
(Heb 12:28 KJV)  Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have GRACE, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
(Heb 13:9 KJV)  Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with GRACE; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.
(John 1:17 KJV)  For the law was given by Moses, but GRACE and truth came by Jesus Christ.
(Acts 4:33 KJV)  And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great GRACE was upon them all.
(2 Pet 3:18 KJV)  But grow in GRACE, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
(2 John 1:3 KJV)  GRACE be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
(2 Tim 1:9 KJV)  Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and GRACE, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
(Jude 1:4 KJV)  For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the GRACE of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
(Heb 10:29 KJV)  Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of GRACE?
(James 1:11 KJV)  For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the GRACE of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.
(Heb 12:15 KJV)  Looking diligently lest any man fail of the GRACE of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;
(1 Cor 11:27 KJV)  Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this
cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the
Lord. 28   But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread,
and drink of that cup. 29  For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily,
eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 30
For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 31  For
if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
Some persons, even in leadership would have you wrongfully believe that God has different laws for different people, for different types of persons.
If you accidentally cross on a red light and a car  it kills you do you still die, even though it was supposedly accidental? Of course!  and no matter who you think you are now as well. You broke the law, the law of sin and death.
And how much more is it wrong if you knowing beforehand that  it was wrong and you still did it, even if you are a supposed Christian now too.
The Laws, both God's and Man's  are made for our protection and when we break them  we can suffer severe negative consequences.. and this is something each one of us has  to immediately see, recognize the laws importances in our own life, and that our related false pride and sinful rebellion has to be appropriately dealt with here too. 
And don't become so spiritual, physically proud and think you are above man's or God's laws now as well,  for you can, may will suffer negative consequences too if you do break them and also  no matter who you think you are. Even when you cheat, lie, steal, commit adultery, are proud, abuse others, etc..
Did God even overlook King David's adulterous sin with Bathsheba because he David  was a king, or he David was loved by God too? No! Will he deal with you any different? No.
I also do wish we would have more faith in God and his promises, commandments  to us even through his Word when we pray and not doubt so easily, and not rather also wrongfully next rather try to do things even in our own, understanding  and do hinder God's way.

(Isa 30:21 KJV)  And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
"There are two kinds of presumption. Either man presumes upon his own capacities, (hoping to be able to save himself without help from on high), or he presumes upon God's conditional almighty power or his mercy ".   Presumption or Faith?

Now hope is THUS ALSO trusting on God's  revealed words of promises given to each one of us personally. Did God speak you on a issue of your concern. Then he did confirm it to you as well by his word? What verse of scripture did he give to you specifically now, next about the concern, OR need. Do stay then on the verse by faith and hope..  (Prov 4:27 KJV)  Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.  (Rom 14:23 KJV)  for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
 True Faith to each one of us thus still comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. It is not presumptuous to take God at His Word. This is called faith. But first you must get this word of faith from God personally in your daily quite time Bible devotions. (Prov 3:16 KJV)  Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.
You thus also need to be able to hear God saying to you this is the way walk there in..
Sadly I know that many persons wrongfully do even people confuse wishful thinking, presumption  also being a rightful  part of hope now as well FOR GOD personally HAS NOT SPOKEN TO THEM about the specific item SO THEY TOO ARE STILL THE BLIND LEAD THE BLIND..
I was shocked to realized that the the majority of evangelical  Pastors even  cannot hear God speaking to them directly.. obviously even cause they do not talk directly themselves daily to Jesus for a start.
(Jer 6:16 KJV)  Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.
(Deu 28:14 KJV)  And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.
(Josh 1:7 KJV)  Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.
(Josh 23:6 KJV)  Be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that is written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside therefrom to the right hand or to the left;
(2 Ki 22:2 KJV)  And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, and walked in all the way of David his father, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left.
(2 Chr 18:18 KJV)  Again he said, Therefore hear the word of the LORD; I saw the LORD sitting upon his throne, and all the host of heaven standing on his right hand and on his left.
(Mat 18:19 KJV)  Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
and it does not take a world wide  prayer chain to get a prayer answered, it only takes two FAITHFUL TO CHRIST PERSONS   to agree in Jesus name and it will be done.. why do people send these prayer CHAINS then.. they obviously cannot find two true people with faith to share the prayer request with still and/or even cause they themselves do not have this needed faith, relationship with God?
(Mat 18:20 KJV)  For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
(Psa 78:60 KJV)  So that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent which he placed among men;
There is always the same problem in even any supposedly Christian circle when men or women, a husband or a wife begin to depend upon their numbers, affiliations, positions,  or do  believe in their own false superiority, education, pedigree,  or they do  even do take the false view that  cause they are working for God that they personally now, next do not have to keep all of God's laws themselves, for they now are above God's laws or any of the possible  related negative consequences. Preaching the Gospel as well is not a viable alternative to living it now as well.  
Many a public civil servant, politician,  and policemen also have thought they too were unprosecuteable now too for they worked for the law, government, higher authority and found out how really wrong they were next here too. US presidents Richard Nixon or Bill Clinton included now. 
(Mat 16:26 KJV)  For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
The Bible clearly records examples how God dealt with the same persons who disobeyed him even for our admonitions, warnings.
(Jude 1:7 KJV)  Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
(1 Sam 4:21 KJV)  And she named the child Ichabod, saying, The glory is departed from Israel: because the ark of God was taken, and because of her father in law and her husband.  (Jer 7:12 KJV)  But go ye now unto my place which was in Shiloh, where I set my name at the first, and see what I did to it for the wickedness of my people Israel.  (Jer 7:14 KJV)  Therefore will I do unto this house, which is called by my name, wherein ye trust, and unto the place which I gave to you and to your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh.  (Jer 26:6 KJV)  Then will I make this house like Shiloh, and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth.
   The final consequences of any personal sin, wrong doing, even one,  was, is death, for each one of us,  even for the "sin of presumption"( which is really a false faith for true faith obeys God's revealed word ) for God said from Day one to Adam and Eve that if they sin they will die. So will everyone dies  that comes after them. 
(Heb 10:31 KJV)  It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.  (James 2:13 KJV)  For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath showed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment
All ungodly humans, and many Christians here  on earth do still being live out now, next own their life, goals  daily on their acquired  deceits, the deceit even that they can still unrepentantly sin and they personally will not suffer any negative consequences. God does not care who you are, in the day you sinned you are faced with impending  negative consequences even of a more sudden death.
Moses himself  did not got to the promise land and he died for his sin of presumption, or disobedience as well..  and so did many others. 
"Near the close of the forty years of wandering, the children of Israel encamped the second time at Kadesh. On the account of there being no water they made made a great complaint against Moses and Aaron, accusing them of having brought them out of Egypt to die in the wilderness. Moses and Aaron went to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, fell upon their faces, and the glory of the Lord appeared unto them. The Lord commanded Moses, (a) to take the rod, (b) to gather the assembly, (c) and to speak unto the rock, assuring him that an abundant supply of water would be furnished. Moses, (a) took the rod, (b) gathered the congregation before the rock, (c) took the glory unto himself and Aaron, (d) and smote the rock twice; water came out abundantly and supplied all their wants; but the Lord declared that in view of the disobedience of Moses and Aaron the should not lead the children of Israel into the land which He had given them (Num., 20:1-13)."
So Saul died for his unfaithfulness; he was unfaithful to the Lord in that he did not keep the command of the Lord, and also consulted a medium, seeking guidance, and did not seek guidance from the Lord. Therefore the Lord slew him, and turned the kingdom over to David the son of Jesse. {1 Chr 10:13-14 RSV}
(2 Ki 15:5 KJV)  And the LORD smote the king, so that he was a leper unto the day of his death, and dwelt in a several house. And Jotham the king's son was over the house, judging the people of the land.
(2 Chr 26:14 KJV)  And Uzziah prepared for them throughout all the host shields, and spears, and helmets, and habergeons, and bows, and slings to cast stones. 15  And he made in Jerusalem engines, invented by cunning men, to be on the towers and upon the bulwarks, to shoot arrows and great stones withal. And his name spread far abroad; for he was marvelously helped, till he was strong. 16  But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the LORD his God, and went into the temple of the LORD to burn incense upon the altar of incense. 17  And Azariah the priest went in after him, and with him fourscore priests of the LORD, that were valiant men: 18  And they withstood Uzziah the king, and said unto him, It appertaineth not unto thee, Uzziah, to burn incense unto the LORD, but to the priests the sons of Aaron, that are consecrated to burn incense: go out of the sanctuary; for thou hast trespassed; neither shall it be for thine honour from the LORD God. 19  Then Uzziah was wroth, and had a censer in his hand to burn incense: and while he was wroth with the priests, the leprosy even rose up in his forehead before the priests in the house of the LORD, from beside the incense altar.  20  And Azariah the chief priest, and all the priests, looked upon him, and, behold, he was leprous in his forehead, and they thrust him out from thence; yea, himself hasted also to go out, because the LORD had smitten him. 21  And Uzziah the king was a leper unto the day of his death, and dwelt in a several house, being a leper; for he was cut off from the house of the LORD: and Jotham his son was over the king's house, judging the people of the land.

(Acts 5:3 KJV)  But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? 4  Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God. 5  And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things. 6  And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him. 7  And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in.
(1 Cor 11:27 KJV)  Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28   But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29  For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 31  For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
In my  own life time I have personally seen many Christian die before their time, die an earthly death, others lost their jobs, homes,health,  even  because they had not repented of their own wrong  doings still especially  including the wrong abuse of another Christian.
(Mat 18:6 KJV)  But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 7  Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! 8  Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. 9  And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. 10  Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
Phil 4:19 KJV)  But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 20  Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen. (Psa 94:17 KJV)  Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.
      I myself now have met too many proud, religious, ambitious persons, Pastors, Bible collage graduates, Bible college students,  trying even still wrongfully to build the kingdom of heaven in their own wisdom, strengths, their own understanding.. and being in the flesh they wrongfully even get mad, angry at you for not supporting them in their endeavors, goals.. The devil is proud, ambition, judgmental, unkind, unloving, impatient,  but  not Jesus Christ.
(Psa 127:1 KJV)   Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. 2  It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
I have also been shocked still as to  how many  pastors, Bible college graduates, Bible college students, really do not spend time reading the Bible themselves daily and daily themselves praying now as well. I also have seen pastors wrongfully leaving  the prayer meetings for others...
for they are still fleshly fools..
(Isa 30:15 KJV)  For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not. 16  But ye said, No; for we will flee upon horses; therefore shall ye flee: and, We will ride upon the swift; therefore shall they that pursue you be swift. 17  One thousand shall flee at the rebuke of one; at the rebuke of five shall ye flee: till ye be left as a beacon upon the top of a mountain, and as an ensign on an hill. (Jer 48:13 KJV)  And Moab shall be ashamed of Chemosh, as the house of Israel was ashamed of Bethel their confidence. Ezek 29:16 KJV)  And it shall be no more the confidence of the house of Israel, which bringeth their iniquity to remembrance, when they shall look after them: but they shall know that I am the Lord GOD.
        I ALSO DO FIRST PRAY  about everything, about everything I do as to what I should do if anything..
(1 John 5:14 KJV)  And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: 15  And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
Many people today are rather asking for things out of the will of God, they are following their own wrong will, lusts, ambitions even still
 (Gal 5:12 KJV)  I would they were even cut off which trouble you.  13   For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. 14  For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 15  But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.
"Inevitably, in every young Christian's personal experience, there is this up-and-down, trial-and-error time when they,  we are so grateful for all of  the  personal, priestly ministry of confession, of cleansing and forgiveness. But, at last, as we are led by the Spirit of God, we have to come to the place where we recognize the root problem. The reason mainly for this wave of up-and-down experience is that we have refused to allow the Lord Jesus to exercise his full kingly lordship in all areas of our life. When at last we are led by the Spirit to the place where our personal, human stubborn will is broken, and we have given up, once and for all, our insistence on running any of our own affairs, we recognize that this is the holiness principle of God by which we each  must continue  live." Sadly many Christians have not yet died to self, their own will, have not been crucified with Christ yet. I remember the day that  I had died here on earthy finally to all personal claims, desires, I had died to each and  all of my own ambitions, plans, self  as well and next lived only for, in Christ.
What about you have you experienced yet this full death in Christ? Why Not?
Rom 14:23 KJV)  for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
(Psa 37:25 KJV)  I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. 26  He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.
   I was once many years ago  by my choice living with a group of Bible students related to the local church. The group leader had decided that we should all go door to door and collect monies for  a project of  establishing  a new local shelter home to help problem persons. I was against this approach but I supported the project. This is not how God supplies their  or our needs by asking others for monies. Never.
The group leader thus became offensive and so not to cause any more divisions, major conflicts,  I went with them to collect the monies the first night. The group leader had embarked on a once a week, for  8 weeks schedule,  to collect monies door to door. I still did not approve of going door to door to collect monies for the church.  God next spoke to me clearly and told me not to go out to collect the monies. The designated group leader was upset, and very skeptical. I just told him that God told me not to go but asked me to pray for the group as they went to collect money. I prayed that God would supply the financial needs but also that they would have opportunity to present the gospel to others as well. The group came back that evening after their door to door collection campaign all  excited, very excited, for  they had not only collected much more money than the other week, but they had many opportunities to present the gospel and they asked that I stay home and pray for them every week day that they go to collect monies, This I did. I told you that I did not approve of the monies being collected. In fact the monies collected never reached the intended project, which as a shelter home to help problem persons,  for the Pastor stole the money, and eventually the pastors were fired, and the same church was even closed next by the federal government for the pastors abusing the tax exemptions donations given to them..
I too had to come to a point in my own life that I was unable to meet any of mine needs, and as a result totally depend on God many times as well. I am of the firm, rightful faith that this is God's work and not ours and he will supply the needs for his work.. all of it.. His way and not our way.. God doe  not even care about American, European boundary for he supplies all of the needs if we do His work His way. I learned that if I wanted to be paid by God I had to work for him and not man, and then when I do his work he pays me  too from any account he chooses too. God does not have two variable laws on faith even for different persons now too.  Ask in Jesus name  and receive means still  to ask God only.  I  have never asked for money for the Lord's work. I resort to Bible reading, prayer and faith, waiting on God. So should we all.
 (Heb 11:6 KJV)  But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. 7  By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
(Heb 10:38 KJV)  Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. 39  But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul. 11;1  Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  2  For by it the elders obtained a good report. 3  Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. 4  By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.
(1 John 5:16 KJV)  If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it. 17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death. 18  We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. 19  And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. 20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. 5;21  Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
and what idols are you trusting to help you to meet your needs, or are you really trusting in God and how do you show it.
I know of many Christian people who disobeyed God's revealed will, went after their own way, and even married unbelievers, for one example, and none of these persons that I knew were next even blessed  for it, rather they ALL, ALL ENDED IN DIVORCE.
(Psa 37:23 KJV)  The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
(1 Sam 15:22 KJV)  And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. 23  For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king. 24  And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.
(Prov 25:19 KJV)  Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.
(Psa 118:8 KJV)  It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
(Psa 118:9 KJV)  It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.
(Psa 118:10 KJV)  All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them. (Prov 21:22 KJV)  A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, and casteth down the strength of the confidence thereof.
(Prov 3:26 KJV)  For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.
(Prov 14:26 KJV)  In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge.
(Psa 37:3 KJV)  Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. 4  Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. 5  Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. 6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. 7  Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. 8  Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
Do you still think that God put these verses in  the Bible for the fun of it, or they are optional.. No they are not at all optional to follow for every believer now as well.
On top of that God had clearly, with examples, many times had already warned the people often about the consequences of approaching God, and the holy ark, in a non proper manner. 
(Prov 16:25 KJV)  There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
"The holiness of the Ark, which represents God himself,  also made it dangerous to all of those who came in contact with it. When Nadav and Avihu, the sons of Aaron, brought a foreign flame to offer a sacrifice in the Tabernacle, they were devoured by a fire that emanated "from the Lord" (Lev. 10:2).

(Lev 10:1 KJV)  And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not. 2  And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD.  3  Then Moses said unto Aaron, This is it that the LORD spake, saying, I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me, and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace.  4  And Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel the uncle of Aaron, and said unto them, Come near, carry your brethren from before the sanctuary out of the camp. 5  So they went near, and carried them in their coats out of the camp; as Moses had said. 6  And Moses said unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar, his sons, Uncover not your heads, neither rend your clothes; lest ye die, and lest wrath come upon all the people: but let your brethren, the whole house of Israel, bewail the burning which the LORD hath kindled. 7  And ye shall not go out from the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: for the anointing oil of the LORD is upon you. And they did according to the word of Moses. 8  And the LORD spake unto Aaron, saying, 9  Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations: 10  And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean; 11  And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the LORD hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses.

Spiritually, the Ark was the manifestation of God's physical presence on earth (the shekhina).Once the Ark was moved into the Holy of Holies in the Tabernacle, and later in the Temple, it was accessible only once a year, and then, only by one person. On Yom Kippur, the High Priest (Kohen Gadol) could enter the Holy of Holies to ask forgiveness for himself and for all the nation of Israel
(Lev 16:1 KJV)  And the LORD spake unto Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they offered before the LORD, and died; 2  And the LORD said unto Moses, Speak unto Aaron thy brother, that he come not at all times into the holy place within the veil before the mercy seat, which is upon the ark; that he die not: for I will appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat. 3  Thus shall Aaron come into the holy place: with a young bullock for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering. 4  He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with a linen girdle, and with the linen mitre shall he be attired: these are holy garments; therefore shall he wash his flesh in water, and so put them on. 5  And he shall take of the congregation of the children of Israel two kids of the goats for a sin offering, and one ram for a burnt offering. 6  And Aaron shall offer his bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and make an atonement for himself, and for his house. 7  And he shall take the two goats, and present them before the LORD at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.  8  And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the LORD, and the other lot for the scapegoat. 9  And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the LORD'S lot fell, and offer him for a sin offering. 10  But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the LORD, to make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness. 11  And Aaron shall bring the bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and shall make an atonement for himself, and for his house, and shall kill the bullock of the sin offering which is for himself: 12  And he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from off the altar before the LORD, and his hands full of sweet incense beaten small, and bring it within the veil: 13  And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the LORD, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not: 14  And he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it with his finger upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times. 15  Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the people, and bring his blood within the veil, and do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat: 16  And he shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their transgressions in all their sins: and so shall he do for the tabernacle of the congregation, that remaineth among them in the midst of their uncleanness. 17  And there shall be no man in the tabernacle of the congregation when he goeth in to make an atonement in the holy place, until he come out, and have made an atonement for himself, and for his household, and for all the congregation of Israel. 18  And he shall go out unto the altar that is before the LORD, and make an atonement for it; and shall take of the blood of the bullock, and of the blood of the goat, and put it upon the horns of the altar round about. 19  And he shall sprinkle of the blood upon it with his finger seven times, and cleanse it, and hallow it from the uncleanness of the children of Israel. 20  And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar, he shall bring the live goat: 21  And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness: 22  And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness. 23  And Aaron shall come into the tabernacle of the congregation, and shall put off the linen garments, which he put on when he went into the holy place, and shall leave them there: 24  And he shall wash his flesh with water in the holy place, and put on his garments, and come forth, and offer his burnt offering, and the burnt offering of the people, and make an atonement for himself, and for the people. 25  And the fat of the sin offering shall he burn upon the altar. 26  And he that let go the goat for the scapegoat shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward come into the camp. 27  And the bullock for the sin offering, and the goat for the sin offering, whose blood was brought in to make atonement in the holy place, shall one carry forth without the camp; and they shall burn in the fire their skins, and their flesh, and their dung. 28  And he that burneth them shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward he shall come into the camp. 29  And this shall be a statute for ever unto you: that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger that sojourneth among you:  30  For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you, to cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before the LORD. 31  It shall be a sabbath of rest unto you, and ye shall afflict your souls, by a statute for ever. 32  And the priest, whom he shall anoint, and whom he shall consecrate to minister in the priest's office in his father's stead, shall make the atonement, and shall put on the linen clothes, even the holy garments: 33  And he shall make an atonement for the holy sanctuary, and he shall make an atonement for the tabernacle of the congregation, and for the altar, and he shall make an atonement for the priests, and for all the people of the congregation. 34  And this shall be an everlasting statute unto you, to make an atonement for the children of Israel for all their sins once a year. And he did as the LORD commanded Moses.
 During the saga of the capture of the Ark by the Philistines, numerous people, including some who merely looked at the Ark, were killed by its power. Similarly, the Priests who served in the Tabernacle and Temple were told that viewing the Ark at an improper time would result in immediate death
(Num 4:17 KJV)  And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, 18  Cut ye not off the tribe of the families of the Kohathites from among the Levites:19  But thus do unto them, that they may live, and not die, when they approach unto the most holy things: Aaron and his sons shall go in, and appoint them every one to his service and to his burden: 20  But they shall not go in to see when the holy things are covered, lest they die.

"The Ark accompanied the Jews throughout their time in the desert, traveling with them and accompanying them to their wars with Emor and Midian. When the Jews crossed into the land of Canaan, the waters of the Jordan River miraculously split and the Ark led them through (Josh. 3). Throughout their conquest of the land, the Jews were accompanied by the Ark. The most dramatic demonstration of its power comes when the Jews breached the walls of Jericho merely by circling them, blowing horns and carrying the Ark (Josh. 6).

After the conquest was completed, the Ark, and the entire Tabernacle, were set up in Shiloh (Josh. 18) . There they remained until the battles of the Jews with the Philistines during the Priesthood of Eli. The Jews, after suffering a defeat at the Philistines' hands, took the Ark from Shiloh to Even-Ezer in hopes of winning the next battle. But the Jews were routed, and the Ark was captured by the Philistines. Back in Shiloh, Eli, the High Priest, immediately died upon hearing the news (I Sam. 4).
The Philistines took the Ark back to Ashdod, their capital city in the south of Canaan, where they placed it in the temple of their god Dagon. The next day, however, they found the idol fallen on its face. After replacing the statue, they found it the next day decapitated, with only its trunk remaining, and soon afterward, the entire city of Ashdod was struck with a plague. The Philistines moved the Ark to the city of Gath, and from there to Ekron, but whatever city the Ark was in, the inhabitants were struck with plague. After seven months, the Philistines decided to send the Ark back to the Israelites, and accompanied it with expensive gifts. The Ark was taken back to Beit Shemesh, and, according to midrash, the oxen pulling the Ark burst into song as soon as it was once again in Israel's possession (A.Z. 22b). The actual text of the story, however, tells a much grimmer tale: The men of Beit Shemesh were punished for staring disrespectfully at the Ark, and many were killed with a plague. "
(2 Sam 6:6 KJV)  And when they came to Nachon's threshing floor, Uzzah put forth his hand to the ark of God, and took hold of it; for the oxen shook it. 7  And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there for his error; and there he died by the ark of God.
We are told how David went down to the Philistine city where the ark was being held captive, took it upon a cart and tried to bring it back to Jerusalem. The unwitting departure of David from the principle of obedience is recorded for us here. He knew the Law commanded that the ark be carried only by the Levites, but in the exuberance of his joy and his zeal for God's cause, he thought God wouldn't mind if the ark was carried in another way. And what was the result? When Uzzah, walking along beside the ark, saw it shaking as it passed over a rough spot in the road, he reached out to steady it. When his hand touched the ark, he immediately dropped dead. David was tremendously shaken by this. But as he thought it over and prayed about it, he realized that it was all his own fault. He had neglected the word of the Lord.

There is no incident from the Old Testament that teaches more clearly the importance of a careful, precise obedience to what the Word of God says. I think it also teaches us that God is able to take care of his own cause. There are many today who, like Uzzah, are trying to steady the ark of God. They think it is going to be defeated by some challenge that is issued against it, and they become self-appointed defenders of the faith, little realizing that God is quite able to defend his own cause."

God himself even calls and equips  Pastors, and there are many false pastors, not called by God the wrong pastors also  trying to help God on their own,  who will rather next  face their own negative consequences appropriately too.

(1 Ki 2:27 KJV)  So Solomon thrust out Abiathar from being priest unto the LORD; that he might fulfil the word of the LORD, which he spake concerning the house of Eli in Shiloh.

(Jer 6:10 KJV)  To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear? behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of the LORD is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it.
(Jer 9:25 KJV)  Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will punish all them which are circumcised with the uncircumcised;
(Ezek 44:6 KJV)  And thou shalt say to the rebellious, even to the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; O ye house of Israel, let it suffice you of all your abominations, 7 In that ye have brought into my sanctuary strangers, uncircumcised in heart, and uncircumcised in flesh, to be in my sanctuary, to pollute it, even my house, when ye offer my bread, the fat and the blood, and they have broken my covenant because of all your abominations. 8  And ye have not kept the charge of mine holy things: but ye have set keepers of my charge in my sanctuary for yourselves. 9  Thus saith the Lord GOD; No stranger, uncircumcised in heart, nor uncircumcised in flesh, shall enter into my sanctuary, of any stranger that is among the children of Israel.

(1 Sam 15:22 KJV)  And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. 23   For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.  (1 Sam 15:26 KJV)  And Samuel said unto Saul, I will not return with thee: for thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, and the LORD hath rejected thee from being king over Israel. 27  And as Samuel turned about to go away, he laid hold upon the skirt of his mantle, and it rent. 28  And Samuel said unto him, The LORD hath rent the kingdom of Israel from thee this day, and hath given it to a neighbour of thine, that is better than thou.

" David learned his lesson. He returned to obedience and asked the Levites to bring up the ark according to the Law; then the ark came into Jerusalem.

"Now here is a most remarkable and significant point: the tabernacle, which had been the home of the ark through all the journeyings in the wilderness, and the central place of worship for Israel during the time of the judges and the reign of Saul, was not located in Jerusalem. The tabernacle was located in the city of Gibeon. One would think that the ark should be returned to that tabernacle, since it had been taken from there. The ark belonged in the Holy of Holies in that tabernacle. But when David brings the ark back, he doesn't return it to the tabernacle. He brings it to the city of Jerusalem, the city of the king, and, by his own authority, he sets up a center of worship on the very site where later the temple was to be built." Thus he replaces the authority of the earthly priests by the sole authority of the heavenly King, and  note this King  David represents that authority of his own descendent  King Jesus Christ.

(Heb 8:12 KJV)  For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. 13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

(1 Cor 15:22 KJV)  For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 23  But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.  24  Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. 25  For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. 26  The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. 27  For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. 28  And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

(2 Cor 5:21 KJV)  For he( God)  hath made him( Jesus)  to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

(Acts 2:38 KJV)  Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

(Acts 3:19 KJV)  Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;

(Acts 17:30 KJV)  And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

(Acts 26:20 KJV)  But showed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.

(Eph 1:5 KJV)  Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, 6   To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

In our false pride, false proclamations of our rights, self merits, we each one still do need to see that it is only still by the love, grace, mercy of God, and through the death of his son Jesus Christ,  that we are even alive today, tommorrow, for we all do always deserve death.

While we are saved by grace we are not NEXT PERSONALLY,  COLLECTIVELY blessed by grace alone for if  you want to be blessed by God there are conditions that you and others do personally  have to meet including.
(Psa 34:1 KJV)  A Psalm of David, when he changed his behaviour before Abimelech; who drove him away, and he departed. I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2  My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
3  O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.
4  I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
5  They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
6  This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
8  O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
9  O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for
there is no want to them that fear him.
10  The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but
they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.
11  Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
12  What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?
13  Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
15  The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.
16  The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
17  The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
19  Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
20  He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.
21  Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
22  The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.
Jesus said, Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them. [Mt 18.19,20]  "As for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord by failing to pray for you." (1 Sam 12.23)  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.(James 5:16 KJV)  I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, 4  Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, (Phil 1:3 KJV)  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; (Eph 6:18 KJV)   Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me; (Rom 15:30 KJV) Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;(Col 4:2 KJV)    Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds: (Col 4:3 KJV)
(Prov 11:26 KJV)  He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him: but blessing shall be upon the head of him that selleth it.
(Num 25:4 KJV)  And the LORD said unto Moses, Take all the heads of the people, and hang them up before the LORD against the sun, that the fierce anger of the LORD may be turned away from Israel. (Num 25:7 KJV)  And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose up from among the congregation, and took a javelin in his hand; 8   And he went after the man of Israel into the tent, and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her belly. So the plague was stayed from the children of Israel.
(Josh 7:10 KJV)  And the LORD said unto Joshua, Get thee up; wherefore liest thou thus upon thy face? 11  Israel hath sinned, and they have also transgressed my covenant which I commanded them: for they have even taken of the accursed thing, and have also stolen, and dissembled also, and they have put it even among their own stuff. 12  Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their enemies, but turned their backs before their enemies, because they were accursed: neither will I be with you any more, except ye destroy the accursed from among you. 13  Up, sanctify the people, and say, Sanctify yourselves against tomorrow: for thus saith the LORD God of Israel, There is an accursed thing in the midst of thee, O Israel: thou canst not stand before thine enemies, until ye take away the accursed thing from among you. 14  In the morning therefore ye shall be brought according to your tribes: and it shall be, that the tribe which the LORD taketh shall come according to the families thereof; and the family which the LORD shall take shall come by households; and the household which the LORD shall take shall come man by man. 15  And it shall be, that he that is taken with the accursed thing shall be burnt with fire, he and all that he hath: because he hath transgressed the covenant of the LORD, and because he hath wrought folly in Israel. 16  So Joshua rose up early in the morning, and brought Israel by their tribes; and the tribe of Judah was taken: 17  And he brought the family of Judah; and he took the family of the Zarhites: and he brought the family of the Zarhites man by man; and Zabdi was taken: 18  And he brought his household man by man; and Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, was taken. 19  And Joshua said unto Achan, My son, give, I pray thee, glory to the LORD God of Israel, and make confession unto him; and tell me now what thou hast done; hide it not from me. 20  And Achan answered Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done: 21  When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them; and, behold, they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it. 22  So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran unto the tent; and, behold, it was hid in his tent, and the silver under it. 23  And they took them out of the midst of the tent, and brought them unto Joshua, and unto all the children of Israel, and laid them out before the LORD. 24  And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor. 25  And Joshua said, Why hast thou troubled us? the LORD shall trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones. 26  And they raised over him a great heap of stones unto this day. So the LORD turned from the fierceness of his anger.
Now I write to you  not what other men have said but only what I know that God alone through Jesus Christ has taught me, confirmed to me is the whole truth.
"A horrible and shocking thing has happened in the land: The prophets prophesy lies, the priests rule by their own authority, and my people love it this way. But what will you do in the end?" Jeremiah 5:30-31, NIV
God wants us all to live by faith in Him to trust in Him to supply all of our needs, but when you disobey God, abuse others, lie, do your own thing, seek your won glory, unrepentantly sin and do evil, have no fear of God, he God will next not bless you, he will stop his blessings upon you. 
But when we personally follow after God and obey God, the blessings are overwhelming. the personal rewards are great
We do  have many clear examples of both of this now as well in the Bible..
(Deu 11:26 KJV)  Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse; 27 A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day: 28  And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.
(Deu 30:1 KJV)  And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath driven thee, 2  And shalt return unto the LORD thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul; 3 That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee 4  If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee:

(John 3:16 KJV)  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Jesus is Lord
