It doesn't matter what you say to a reprobate or closed mind, the information will be rejected immediately, save some divine intervention. You can
plant a seed, but only God can give the increase.
I can only speak to the personal prayers God has answered for me, but they're so personal that they' lack meaning for others.
Under the law we're all savage beasts and deserve punishment. We have lied; stolen; blasphemed; lusted and acted on lust.
We have to face a perfectly just God on judgement and try to convince him that our deeds were righteous (because sin is burned away in Gods presence)
good luck without the advocate and covering of Jesus Christ.
God will ask you why a lying, thieving, blasphemous adulterer should be allowed in heaven, and you'll be without an excuse. You really will. You'll
beg for forgiveness when it's too late.
Jesus, if you have faith, will step in and answer for you "this one is mine and their sins are forgotten, their faith has made them clean and they're
now sons of God being made perfect through Christ Jesus".
You have an advocate, don't forget that. Don't lash out in anger at YOUR own failings. Address them and move forward in repentence, turn from your sin
(or at least try your hardest) and trust that Jesus is your advocate.
We love you, and I hope to see you on the right side of the throne.
