But hasn’t there been supposed cases where he did intervene and lead people to find Him even when they were not looking for Him? Why doesn’t he let everyone in the world know that the should be looking? Until I was about 23 or so God never intervened in my life and never even tired to let me know that i should be looking for him. At 23 I feel He may have picked that time to intervene, but I don’t know why He would wait that long.

If I could answer your questions directly, I would be classed as a theologian. I'm not. far from it. BUT, I have the spark of His Spirit in my human spirit and have come to accept that His ways are so far above my ways that I have so few clues why He runs His Universe as He does. Put another way, my finite mind could not grasp all the variables God handles, even if I could identify them on His terms.

The Bible records that Abraham believed God and it was counted for him righteousness. I believe God for He cannot lie. I believe His Word that with His Spirit in my human Spirit I will not die, though my body rot away.

But the Bible goes even further to teach that ALL HUMAN SPIRTS exist beyond the constraints of time, they are immortal. The question is what destiny you choose for your eternity. God has given clear choices. We make the choice one way or the other, even by default. Jeuss told the Pharisees that what God wanted was for them to believe on Him Whom God Has sent for their choice. That's all Jesus instructed them at that question.

not so - G-d was always knocking at your door; if you didn’t know it it was YOU who was not doing something, not G-d
