    Usually not. He's mostly satisfied to let nature take its course. Of course, if he really wants you dead, you will simply stop living.

    No,Death was determined by the first humans being disobedient to God. Thats why we needed Jesus sacrifice to rescue Us from death. Soon Jehovah will resurrect our dead loved ones.

    No The Bible says at DEUTERONOMY 30:19, please read, it says

    I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

    God, however, does not force us to obey him. Moses says: “I do put before you today life and good, and death and bad.” (Verse 15) We are free to choose between life and death, good and bad. We can choose to worship and obey God with blessings in view, or we can choose to disobey him and suffer the consequences. Either way, the choice is ours.​—Verses 16-18;

    Yes, it is Allah that determines and brings life or death of an individual. When Allah wills to take somebody from this world, His will happens as accordingly and the angel of death comes for them. Death is in the Hands of Allah, and Life is in the Hands of Allah. Allah alone resurrects whomever and brings about death as well.

    We all die because we are sinners. We also have free will to decide to believe the truth, or not.

    The truth is that death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether the person believed in Jesus for eternal life, or not.

    The truth is that Jesus loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that Jesus is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing in Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in Jesus to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven when you die, because you believe in Jesus! It is too late to be saved, after death

    No. Its either a person who kills a person who commits suicide or a disease or an angle of death that God sends and all of the other determinations.

    Jesus said that man is a creature of chance. That is good enough for me but all things are known, in advance, to Almighty God. It is a difficult concept to grasp and one that is more easily overcome by faith and trust.

    Yes, Hebrews 9:27, Psalms 90:10.
