    Hello... i sinned a lot after i left God for a guy, including having played God, misrepresented God, misused His word and accidentally turning His people away from Him, causing them to rebel and accidentally misleading them down the path of destruction ><
    ive been punished, and almost died, and ive been learning my lesson.

    but one very disturbing thing is that i have been seeing my familys birthdates associated with the number 4 and other bad signs >< frantically i have asked God a number of times to not destroy my family, but i have seen the word ‘no’, and ‘learn’. i then asked God again and He told me to apologize to the girl involved (that i had misrepresented God to in the past and turned away from God). it seems that unless i do this, God would destroy my family >< to make me learn.

    that He would only not destroy if i apologized to the girl :/

    does this sound like God?

    God is not going to punish another for something that you have done. It is a good thing to apologize to someone that you have lead astray, if it is possible. Sometimes our sin does affect others. Jonah rebelled against God and the storm affected the crew of the boat as well as Jonah. However, God's intent is to bring repentance. Since you have already repented, God's discipline has done its job. Satan can and does sneak in and he attempts to deceive you. He may try to extend a trial past the point that God intends. I believe that is happening to you now. Remember that God loves you and wants the best for you.
    Ignore the signs that you've seen. That is occult, not God.

    um ive not fully repented yet :/ through this entire thing ive learned that i have lost faith in God, have a hard time trusting God, trust people more than God, have a problem with resentment towards God for past issues, plus ive also got problems with being rebellious towards God and finding it hard to submit to Him ><

    i also feel confused about who God is.

    the thing is that ive read in the bible that when some people sinned against God’s people, like in the case of the three men in the fire, the sinners and their families were all thrown into the fire as punishment. so it seems possible :/

    in king ahab’s case too :/ i think his entire family was punished ><

    there was this prophet who did wrong too i think, in the old testament. and God said He would punish the family as well :(

    so it makes sense this could be God :(

    but saying that unless i apologize to her, He would destroy us, makes me dislike God and find Him unkind. :( and it troubles me a lot ><

    God's dealings with Israel were based on the principle of blessing and cursing. The standard of behaviour was the Law. It did not have to be that way. The hard hearts of the people made it the only way possible. God offered tremendous blessing if Israel obeyed and terrible judgements if they did not. Israel experienced both blessing and judgement. Note that Israel as a nation agreed to God's principle.
    Lord Jesus came to bring grace to people who are not able to fulfil God's law themselves. That is everyone. All are sinners. No one can obey even the first commandment, to love God with all their hearts. The Old Testament Law simply proves that we are utterly unwilling to keep the Law. What God gave us in Christ was the opportunity to receive a new nature, one that is compatible with God and wants to obey God. That is what it means to be born again.

    When we are born again, Lord Jesus comes to live in us in the Person of His Holy Spirit. Lord Jesus is all that you should be but cannot be. The question then becomes, who is in control of your life? If you are still trying to work everything out and trying to be good, you will fail. If you allow Lord Jesus to be your life instead of your (vain) efforts, victory is assured. It's not an easy life. It is impossible for us! But the Lord Jesus has endured every temptation that we could, yet without sin. He can and will get you through. Simply trust Him. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. We need also to know the love of God. If you want to know how much God hates sin, look at the cross. If you want to know how much God loves you, look at the cross. I've been through similar struggles to you. Lord Jesus will bring us through. We look back and wonder at our doubt and unbelief and want never to go back that way again.

    If it is not genuine, then it does not matter. If it is a genuine apology, you do not have to meet with her personally, you can write her a note.
    God knows your heart. Unless it is what you truly feel you should do, it is worthless. Your conscience is attacking you and allowing superstition to creep in, like sorcery, a way for Satan to decisive you and keep you away from doing the right thing.
    Be blessed.

    What God says is to repent of your sins, turn away from them & turn to God & obey Him. If you have any restitution or amends to make, make them as soon as you can.

    Proverbs 28:5,10,13 Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the LORD comprehend fully. He who leads the upright along the path of evil will fall into his own pit, but the blameless will inherit what is good. He who conceals his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses & forsakes them will find mercy.

    Leviticus 5:5 When anyone becomes aware that they are guilty in any of these matters, they must confess in what way they have sinned.

    Numbers 5:7 They must confess their sin & make full restitution for what they have done, adding an additional 20 percent & give all this to the one he has wronged.

    Acts 24:16 In view of this, I also do my best to maintain always a blameless conscience both before God & before men.

    Read also Psalm 51 and Psalm 32.

    Philippians 4:6-9 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer & petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts & your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think on these things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me or seen in me, put into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

    God is a righteous & impartial judge, Who will do what is right.

    Micah 6:11,7,8 Can I justify wicked scales & a bag of deceptive weights? Does the LORD take delight in thousands of rams, in ten thousand rivers of oil? Shall I present my firstborn for my rebellious acts, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?

    8He has told you, O man, what is good & what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, to love kindness & to walk humbly with your God?

    Well, yes our actions can effect other people. But if you really were so influential with her, I would think now you could influence her to get with God, don't you think?? :) So, if she's going on and on the wrong way, that's because of her, now, maybe, and not you because now you are not giving her bad influence.

    But if God has you talk with her, amen, like Maria says. And trust God to have you do what He really wants . . . in His peace. God satisfies and guides us in His peace. Jesus does not just threaten and pressure us. Jesus wants willing obedience with love for people we reach to.

    Right now, though, may be you are not ready to deal with such a person who is into such Satanic stuff. But we can pray for her. And in prayer we can get ready in case God has us reaching to a person.

    God is the One who is able.

    This is not of God. The Holy Spirit never intimidates, manipulates, or bullies anyone. All you have to do is to confess your sin to God and He is faithful and just to forgive you and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. What happens after that, you will be led by the Holy Spirit and given the opportunity to apologise if that is going to be helpful to turn that person back to God.

    But the Holy Spirit will never threaten to kill your family if you don't do whatever. The thought you had about that came from the devil and not from God.
