OBEY AND BE BLESSED - DISOBEY AND BE CURSED! It's your choice. You will be blessed in proportion to the amount of the Bible you follow and cursed in proportion to the amount of the Bible you do not follow. We are told to keep all the words of the Holy Bible.
Moses disobeyed God and He wouldn't let him go into the promised land (struck the rock rather than speaking to it, Num. 20:8,11-12).
Aaron's sons offered strange fire and were killed by God (improper form of worship, Num. 3:4; 26:61).
Eli did not correct his corrupt sons who committed adultery at the temple and took the wrong pieces of meat from the offering pot. A hook was to pass through the pot and they were to take what it caught. Instead, they took the best pieces before they were put in the pot (adultery and greed, I Sam. 2:12).
GOD SENDS DEMONS AND EVIL ON PEOPLE FOR DISOBEDIENCE - King David, a man after God's own heart, went after Bethsheba (2 Sam. 11:4). David received a sword (2 Sam. 12:10) in his house forever. It caused death of Bethsheba's child (2 Sam. 12:15-18). Absalom tried to take David's throne but was killed. By David's example, Absalom was taught rebellion and murder. David did not go into battle (neglected to fight God's battles, 2 Sam. 11:1), he was a peeping Tom, committed adultery and murder, and was greedy for more women.
Solomon turned his heart from God to worship the Ashtoreth (Venus - goddess of sensual love - licentiousness, sodomites - patroness of sex) and Milcom (Molech - Sacrifice of children) the abominable idol of the Ammonites. God took the kingdom from Solomon's sons. I Kings 11:1-13 The Jews lost their nation and went into captivity for idol worship and for disobeying God's laws concerning the way they should treat each other. Isaiah and Jeremiah.
Ananias and Sapphira had lust for money and admiration, they were hypocrites, and they lied and died (Acts 5:1-9). They wanted God's blessing and admiration of the people, and some of the money also.
Simon the Sorcerer believed in God but was greedy for money and power, Acts 8:18-19). Paul told him that bad things were going to come upon him (Acts 8:20-23).
