Mock God at Your Own Risk!

I received this via email and it made me reflect. While I have not double checked the facts, I found this to be inspiring. I hope you find it impactful.

DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS?   I SURE DIDN’T TILL NOW.

Death is certain but the Bible speaks about untimely death!  Make a personal reflection about this…

It is written in the Bible, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” Galatians 6:7

Here are some men and women who mocked God :

John Lennon (Singer): Some years before, during his interview with an American Magazine, he said:

“Christianity will end, it will disappear. I do not have to argue about that. I am certain.  Jesus was ok, but his subjects were too simple, today we are more famous than Him.” (1966).

Lennon, after saying that the Beatles were more famous than Jesus Christ, was shot six times.

Tancredo Neves (President of Brazil ): During the Presidential campaign, he said if he got 500,000 votes from his party, not even God would remove him from Presidency.

Sure he got the votes, but he got sick a day before being President, then he died.

Cazuza (Brazilian composer, singer and poet): During A show in Canecio ( Rio de Janeiro ), while smoking his cigarette, he puffed out some smoke into the air and said: “God, that’s for you.”

He died at the age of 32 of LUNG CANCER.

The man who built the Titanic: After the construction of Titanic, a reporter asked him how safe the Titanic would be.  With an ironic tone he said: “Not even God can sink it.”

I think you all know what happened to the Titanic

Marilyn Monroe (Actress): She was visited by Billy Graham during a presentation of a show.  He said the Spirit of God had sent him to preach to her.  After hearing what the Preacher had to say, she said, “I don’t need your Jesus.”

A week later, she was found dead in her apartment.

Bon Scott (Ex-vocalist of AC/DC): On one of his 1979 songs he sang, “Don’t stop me; I’m going down all the way, down the highway to hell.”

On the 19th of February 1980, he was found dead; he had been choked by his own vomit.

Campinas, Brazil: In 2005 a group of friends, drunk, went to pick up a friend. The mother accompanied her to the car and was worried about the drunkenness of her friends. She said to the daughter holding her hand, who was already seated in the car, “My daughter, go With God and may He protect you.”  She responded, “Only if He (God) travels in the trunk, ’cause inside here it’s already full.”

Hours later, news came that they had been involved in a fatal accident, everyone had died. The car could not be recognized what type of car it had been, but surprisingly, the trunk was intact.  The police said there was no way the trunk could have remained intact. To their surprise, inside the trunk was a crate of eggs, none were broken.

Christine Hewitt (Jamaican Journalist and entertainer): She said the Bible (Word of God) was the worst book ever written.

In June 2006, she was found burnt beyond recognition in her motor vehicle.

Many more important people have forgotten that there is no other name that was given so much authority as the name of Jesus.  Many have died, but only Jesus died and rose again, and He is still alive.

I have done my part, Jesus said “If you are embarrassed about me, I will also be embarrassed about you before my father.” Mark 8:38 paraphrased.

Bishop T.D. Jakes’ 8 Second Prayer, just repeat this prayer and see how God moves!!

‘Lord, I love you and I need you, come into my heart, and bless me, my family, my home, and my friends, in Jesus’ name. Amen.’

  1. Thanks for your comment and link to the article Natas.

    For the record, I did say I didn’t fact check but just found it inspiring. I agree the cause of death was not always an effect of the comments. I just found the points to be a great reminder to honor God and not mock Him (purely for individual spiritual growth and not fear of death/wrath). To be honest, I never quite understood the term ‘God-Fearing’ since He is full of grace and love.

    I think the article author loses some credibility when making general assumptions in the critique of the email author:

    “So according to the author of this e-mail and the people that are passing it along, God gets revenge on those who mock him. Now I get it. Does this mean that the children who die every day from leukemia, cancer, disease, starvation or in car accidents must have been God mockers? I feel better knowing that they got what they deserved. I guess our troops that have died in Iraq must be God mockers too. I’m sure the young men and women who make it home are the true believers. We know the dead Iraqi civilians were mocking God because they didn’t even believe in Jesus. They had it coming. I don’t know what I was thinking when I used to say, “Judge not lest ye be judged.” It’s clear that when someone dies an untimely death, we need to find out what they did to deserve it and then condemn them. Thank you, “Christians.” You will surely be rewarded for such brilliant heartfelt insight.”

    Not once does the email author state that everybody who dies mocked God. That is a pretty far reaching conclusion on the article author.

    Thanks for reading and adding a great conversation point!

    Look at some celebrities who mocked God and they paid for it big time!!!

    Richard Pryor, kept doing God jokes until he nearly got burned to death in a drug explosion.
    He vowed never to do GOD jokes ever again.

    Eddie Griffin- A standup comedian was doing anti-God jokes and he wound up in an accident crashing a million dollar Ferrari. He said those jokes this a few months before this happened.

    Richard Jeni- Commited suicide. In one of his comedy bits, he makes fun of Christ being on an
    airplane hitting people with the cross.

    Sad to see comedians make fun of the Creator and sadly, they’re in Hell. All that for a punchline?

    Sam Kinison- Former minister turned comedian, kept God bashing and living the rock and roll lifestyle, until he died in a car accident with his newly married wife and she survived.

    Why hurry your demise and when you have no respect for God/Christ? That’s like playing Russian roulette!

    😦

    I’m not perfect, but I do respect what Christ/God has done for me and that’s not to be mocked.
