Abandon God? 10 Horrible Things that can happen!

To abandon God is like sitting on the keg of gun powder which can explode when least expected. You might be going through some hard times you don’t expect… and you thought such unwanted circumstances shouldn’t have happened to you because of your Christian status. Sorry about that! But to abandon God is not a good option.

Many years ago, I abandoned Satan and gave my life to the LORD. HE promised me good wealth and some other attractive packages. Few years later, I did not enjoy any good wealth as promised by the Lord.

So, I abandoned God and chose to follow my way. I met some guys who introduced me into a trading business I know nothing about. The business plan was so attractive, and I thought in my heart that I will be a millionaire in a short time.

I whispered to myself that it is good to abandon God and handle life the way it pleases me…

I borrowed a total of 4,000 dollars from three different sources for the trading. After the transaction, I ran into a huge loss. I never knew that the river side I always go for recreation could ever be a place of suicide for me.

Two minutes to my suicide hour, I received a miraculous phone call that gave me hope to pay back the money I borrowed. The God I abandoned had mercy on me.

To abandon God is dangerous, destructive and deadly!!

What does it mean to Abandon God?

God is the Creator of all creations. HE is so great that you can’t know everything about HIM. To abandon God means:

1. Stop praying to HIM with faith.

2. Refusal to praise HIM with all your heart.

3. To become a hypocrite.

4. Falling in love with the things of the world.

5. No passion for personal Bible studies and

6. Disobedience to the Word of God.

To abandon God attracts the following troubles;

1. Rejection: Satan was an arch angel in Heaven before He abandoned God. The LORD rejected him and he was cast out of Heaven.

Revelation chapter 12 verses 9 says: “So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”

2. Curses: The Pharisees and the Priest abandon God for their selfish interest and Jesus rained curses on them.

Matthew chapter 23 verse 13 says: “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.”

3. Restlessness: The minds that abandon God can never enjoy peace, because God is Peace and Jesus is Prince of Peace.

Isaiah chapter 9 verse 6 says: “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

4. Confusion: Uncertainty is the order of the day for those that abandon God. For example; the Atheist always gets confused in the deepest part of their heart.

5. Demotion: Anyone that rejects God cannot enjoy steady promotion in life. For instance, king Jehoahaz abandon God and he was pulled down from his throne.

Second Chronicles chapter 36 verse 2 and 3: “Jehoahaz was twenty-three years old when he became king, and he reigned three months in Jerusalem. Now the king of Egypt deposed him at Jerusalem…”

6. Pay unbearable Price: Those that abandon God live a life with heavy burden.

Jesus called those who abandon God to change their mind.

Matthew chapter 11 verse 28 to 30 says: “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

7. More Enemies: if you abandon God, your enemies would triumph over you.

First King chapter 11: “… So the LORD became angry with Solomon, because his heart had turned from the LORD God of Israel, who had appeared to him twice…

Therefore the LORD said to Solomon, “Because you have done this, and have not kept My covenant and My statutes, which I have commanded you, I will surely tear the kingdom away from you and give it to your servant…”

“Now the LORD raised up an adversary against Solomon, Hadad the Edomite; he was a descendant of the king in Edom...”

8. Slavery: the victims would suffer emotional, physical and spiritual slavery.

Judges chapter 3 verses 8 says: “Therefore the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and He sold them into the hand of Cushan-Rishathaim king of Mesopotamia; and the children of Israel served Cushan-Rishathaim eight years.

9. Insecurity: Nightmares, spiritual torments, theft cases, loss of job, and other similar terrible things are not far from those who abandon God.

10. Lost Salvation: those that are strongly determined to abandon God forever will lose the salvation of Jesus Christ and will automatically lose Heaven.

Hebrew chapter 6 verses 4 to 6 says: “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.”


Please do not reject God despite any ‘disappointment’. The motivational Pastors always preach half-truth such as; “when you accept Christ there is enjoyment, money, food, shelter, Joy, Fruitfulness and all good things.” They don’t preach the other side of the coin.

Please don’t reject God if you experience ‘Suffering in Christ’:

Apostle Peter said: “But even if you should suffer for righteousness sake, you are blessed. “And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled.” (1Peter 3:14).

For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.” (1Peter 3:17).

Suffer means endurance, so everything about Christianity is not rosy.

Don’t abandon God when you meet ‘tribulations’ on the pathway of Salvation:

Jesus says: “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

The motivational Pastors kept this bitter truth from you… sorry about that.

There is no circumstance of life that justifies rejecting God as your LORD and Savior.
