Hell is eternal. You will justly spend eternity there if your life denies the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It could begin as early as today or it could tarry for a moment but make no mistake, on that day it will be sudden and FINAL. It will be too late. “You must born again.”
"For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God."
You see, the Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8), not make an excuse for them. If the blood of Christ is an excuse for your sin and has not the power to make you a new creation it is counted a common thing and fearful at that…
"For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries. Anyone who has rejected Moses’ law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace? For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. And again, “The LORD will judge His people.” It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God."
You see, for those who have trampled on the Spirit on grace by counting it an excuse for sin it will be a worse punishment than if you were under the law. You blaspheme the name of Jesus and present Him as something He is not.
He is an all-sufficient sacrifice offering Himself once for all. He has power over life and death. His blood takes men who are dead in their trespasses, slaves to sin, and makes them alive in Him and free slaves to righteousness. Free to love His ways. Free to love His commandments. Free to live a life consecrated and holy by the power of His Spirit. Freedom passing from death into life! Not to stay dead, work harder, and call it life.
"Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified." (2 Corinthians 13:5)
"And let everyone that is yet out of Christ, and hanging over the pit of hell, whether they be old men and women, or middle-aged, or young people, or little children, now hearken to the loud calls of God’s word and providence." *
I implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
"Today, if you will hear His voice: “Do not harden your hearts, as in the rebellion." "Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” “Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts.”
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
"Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life."

"Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,
But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint." (Isaiah 40:28-31)
