Yes you will, and it won't be with a gun at your head. When it happens, you will be wishing that is was just a gun. Every knee will bow to Him, and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. You have God’s Word on it. You will bow. Hitler will bow. So will Pontius Pilate, every cruel Roman soldier that spat on Him, and every hate filled religious hypocrite that called for his death.
So will every God-denying atheist and every God-loving sinner. We bowed the knee the moment we repented and trusted Him as Lord (the One to whom we are all morally responsible) and God (the One who gave us life).
As much as you would like to, you haven’t made a "covenant with death." The grave will not hide you from the Justice of a holy God. The moral Law will rip you from your grave and you will stand before God in Judgment, whether you believe in Him or not. The Bible warns that it's a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God. If you think that I’m trying to scare you, you are right. Fear is good, if it awakens you into self-preservation.
Massive tsunamis, terrifying earthquakes, jaw-dropping flashes of lightning, and ground-shaking rolls of thunder are nothing compared to the terror of Judgment Day. Almighty God is wrath-filled at wicked humanity—with all its murder, rape, hatred, lust, adultery, pride, arrogance, and ingratitude, and Hell opens wide its hungry mouth for equity.
If you can't understand such talk, think of how angry you would be if someone tied up your mother, tortured, raped her, and then slowly cut her throat. How would you feel if, in a statement to the judge, the criminal demeaned his crime and said it was no big deal, that he had done many good things in his life, and that he was a good person? I hope you would be angry at such wickedness. Think of how you would long for him to be punished for such a heinous crime. If so, you have a small glimpse into how a morally perfect God reacts to our many sins.
So don't die in your sins. There is no way out of Hell. If you end up there, it will be because of your own rebellion. I will be free from your blood. It will be on your own head. I have spent the best part of 40 years warning people like you that God means what He says. He takes no pleasure in your death, but if you want to embrace it and then what comes after it, so be it.
