What happens if you don’t accept God’s offer?

I like to watch people. It is always interesting to see what they will do. As I watch the antics that people go through, I begin to see something phenomenal. All the people who refuse to accept God and His son Jesus, make references to Him. My favorite thing is an expression that people say, O my God. Or they say Jesus. I have seen people say they will pray and not know what they saying. For people who claim that there is no God, they make a lot of references to God. There is a real reason why. Some 2600 years ago, God did something extraordinary. God made a covenant with man and Jeremiah wrote it down. What God did was to write His laws and commandments on our hearts. So that we could know the word of God. With that knowledge came our accountablity to God. No longer was God going to punish the children for the sins of their fathers. Each person was accountable to God personally. This means that we have no excuse before God. God created us because He loved us. He wanted to share all that He had with us. Starting with Adam and Eve, God gave He very best to man. The garden of Eden was no piece of junk. Adam controlled all that saw. With his word everything changed or was corrected. He named every animal, plant or living thing in the garden. The weather was controlled by Adam. And yet with all of this, Adam sinned against God and was cast out of the garden. This is who man is, a sinner separated from God. God could have destroyed man or left us in sin and dying. But God loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever would believe on Him would have everlasting life. Unfortunately, God only gives us our lifetime to accept His offer to go home. We have this lifetime to hear God speak and listen. This is why God wrote His laws and commandments in our hearts and minds. And this is why we are without an excuse when we stand before God. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of a living God.
