"... If God be for us, who can be against us (Rom 8.31)?"

Christ rebuked the Pharisees (Mt 23.13-25) and warned us about their hypocrisy and false doctrine (Mt 16.12 & Lk 12.1). He is clearly not for everybody.

For example, he commands every believer to "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature (Mk 16.15)." He blesses them that obey (Jas 1.25) but those who don't he likens to a man who built his house on the sand. When the winds blew and the floods came great was the fall of his house (Mt 7.26). Clearly God is not for everyone.

Things go better when we obey him and do his will, "For the whole duty of man is to fear God and obey his commands." Let's obey Christ's commands to preach the gospel and teach others to preach it (Mk 16.15 & Mt 28.20). To preach the gospel simply ask another if they have heard the good news (Gospel means good news.) and tell them - "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose the third day (1 Cor 15.3-4)." This allows the hearer to believe on Christ and be saved (Jn 3.36 & 6.47). Then we can teach them to preach the gospel and to teach others to preach it thereby multiplying the gospel seed.

Is God for us? Yes, if we do the things he says. Let's examine ourselves and make sure we are obeying his commands (Mk 16.15 & Mt 28.20).
