Hebrews 10:28-31 (The Message Translation) If the penalty for breaking the law of Moses is physical death, what do you think will happen if you turn on God’s Son, spit on the sacrifice that made you whole, and insult this most gracious Spirit? This is no light matter. God has warned us that he’ll hold us to account and make us pay. He was quite explicit: “Vengeance is mine, and I won’t overlook a thing” and “God will judge his people.” Nobody’s getting by with anything, believe me.

God desires everyone to be saved (1 Timothy 2:4). We are saved by confessing with our mouths and believing in our hearts Jesus is Lord (Romans 10:19). If we reject Jesus, Who is the payment for our sins, we are destined to eternal damnation.

In the Old Covenant, under the law of Moses, the penalty for breaking the law was physical death. The benefit of dying under the Old Covenant after breaking the law was a second chance. If these people believed the Messiah was coming prior to their death and they received Him once His sacrifice was available, they were saved. For those who reject Jesus and die under the New Covenant, there are no more chances (Hebrews 10:29). It’s eternity in a tortuous hell based on unbelief.

This is not meant to scare anyone to receive Jesus, but it’s the truth. Regardless of what’s being said in the world, popular theories, and new ideas, accept Jesus as Lord. It’s better to accept Him as Lord and be wrong than to not believe and spend eternity in hell. Receive Him.
