God killing own people in Old Testament

If God killed his own people and those were not the chosen people shown in the old testament

Why should he not for those who dont believe?, just because people think God is love

Good point.

Every sin and disobedience shall receive a just recompense of reward.  Just not an eternal one.

Physical death is only temporary. God knows the outcome of all people, he knows they will all be spirit beings one day. We are only here for a short time, but in the hereafter we will exist continuously. Physically death is necessary in order to abtain a spiritual body. There is a big difference between temporary death and punishment that never ends.

willieH: How-D!   :laughing7:

ALL LIFE and it's individual durations are decided by YHVH...

It can be observed by the NATURAL (not SPIRITUAL) observer, that "God kills" millions in natural disasters such as tornadoes, earthquakes, tidal waves, hurricanes, etc... but is He "killing" them...

Of course He is NOT... He has declared ALL THINGS from the BEGINNING to have the LIFETIME durations they shall have IN TIME... (Is 46-10-11)

GOD is the giver of life, and therefore is the ONLY one that has the RIGHT to take it AWAY as His PURPOSE and DECLARATION require...

He will not be questioned by anyone which observes in the SPIRIT... for he which observes God as "killing" is doing so according to NATURAL perception... and is NOT seeing that GOD is enacting and bringing to PASS, His HOLY PURPOSE for His creation...  In the process of that PURPOSE, He has declared each part of that PURPOSE which cannot be altered.

He has RECONCILED and RESTORED ALL THINGS unto Himself COMPLETELY by the work of HIS Son JESUS CHRIST... to deny this, is to deny what IS WRITTEN: (Col 1:20 / 2 Cor 5:19)

The FIRE is NOW... (Rev 3:18) CHRIST's "gold" was tried in FIRE... those "trials" were found amidst the FIRE which was the "lifetime" He lived here in this realm of TIME...

The DEEDS of men, are done NOW (Acts 17:28),  "BEING" is existing, and ALL works of man good or evil are found "BEING" ...NOW.

NOW is the DAY of SALVATION and the ACCEPTED "time"...

In NOW are our deeds JUDGED (John 12:31) For in NOW, JESUS CHRIST, ...IS...

GOD is not a being which is "future" or "past"... He is a being which IS, ...NOW...

willieH: Hi Edward... :hithere:

Did LOVE not "wait" for you to believe Edward?  Be patient, and know that ALL others, whether or not they even realize it, ...seek Him to "wait" for them to "believe" as did you...

No one wishes to DIE... on the contrary... we scratch and claw to maintain LIFE...

So, just a word of recommendation meant peacefully,  :friendstu: ...please don't be so quick to lay death at the doorstep of others, which have yet to see what you have come to see...   :reachout:
