God is NEAR, He is not nearer or closer to some people than to others. God is with us by His Spirit. The Holy Spirit convicts ALL MEN ALL THE TIME of SIN, RIGHTEOUSNESS and JUDGMENT but very few care to LISTEN.
Most people ignore God and that is why they perish. They live in sin and that is why they are separated from God. They refuse to LISTEN to the voice of God, the Holy Spirit, speaking IN THEM all the time. If you LISTEN your soul will LIVE. If you hearken, take notice, tune in to that voice of the Holy Spirit speaking IN YOU all the time, then YOU WILL LIVE.
Humble yourself before Jesus Christ, go on your knees right where you are and plead Him forgiveness for your sin and STOP SINNING! Then you will hear His voice more clearly. LISTEN when He speaks to you and you will LIVE. Be holy, be righteous, obey Him and you will LIVE IN HIS PRESENCE, you will be NEAR TO GOD as He is NEAR TO YOU.
Are you NEAR TO GOD as He is near to you or do you ignore Him and continue in selfishness and in sin. If you keep on resisting, ignoring and rejecting God you will perish and be separated from Him for eternity. Are you living CLOSE TO GOD?
May Jesus bless you.
