We are to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ but to my understanding if I we do not receive the salvation offered to us , me :and do not intend to receive the salvation that is there for me in the future in that area then I am going to suffer the consequences of the denial of the freedom of sin . I will miss that Divine appointment.
