John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.’

Oh how blest is the person that loves and obeys the Lord Jesus, John 14:23!
Romans 8:28 ‘And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.’
a. Romans 8:28 Or that all things work together for good to those who love God, who; or that in all things God works together with those who love him to bring about what is good – with those who
They live their life in the company of the true God.
Not so the Impenitent Sinner who refuses to love and obey the Lord Jesus, John 14:24!
Testimonies about Jesus
Jesus said in John 5:31 ‘If I testify about myself, my testimony is not true. 32 There is another who testifies in my favour, and I know that his testimony about me is true.
33 ‘You have sent to John and he has testified to the truth. 34 Not that I accept human testimony; but I mention it that you may be saved. 35 John was a lamp that burned and gave light, and you chose for a time to enjoy his light.
36 ‘I have testimony weightier than that of John. For the works that the Father has given me to finish – the very works that I am doing – testify that the Father has sent me. 37 And the Father who sent me has himself testified concerning me. You have never heard his voice nor seen his form, 38 nor does his word dwell in you, for you do not believe the one he sent. 39 You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me, 40 yet you refuse to come to me to have life.
The Prophet Nehemiah said in his book. Nehemiah 9:26 “But they were disobedient and rebelled against you; they put your law behind their backs. They killed your prophets, who had admonished them in order to turn them back to you; they committed awful blasphemies. 27 So you handed them over to their enemies, who oppressed them. But when they were oppressed they cried out to you. From heaven you heard them, and in your great compassion you gave them deliverers, who rescued them from the hand of their enemies.
Paul warned the people in Ephesus, in Ephesians 5:6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient.
Disobeying the gospel.
Paul warned the people in Thessalonica, in 2 Thessalonians 1:8 He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.
Dealing with a case of incest
1 Corinthians 5:1 It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that even pagans do not tolerate: a man is sleeping with his father’s wife. 2 And you are proud! Shouldn’t you rather have gone into mourning and have put out of your fellowship the man who has been doing this? 3 For my part, even though I am not physically present, I am with you in spirit. As one who is present with you in this way, I have already passed judgment in the name of our Lord Jesus on the one who has been doing this. 4 So when you are assembled and I am with you in spirit, and the power of our Lord Jesus is present, 5 hand this man over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh,[a][b] so that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord.
a, 1 Corinthians 5:5 In contexts like this, the Greek word for flesh (sarx) refers to the sinful state of human beings, often presented as a power in opposition to the Spirit.
b, 1 Corinthians 5:5 Or of his body
Yet we have Christians, who are really impenitent sinners, committing sex with children and being protected by their Church!
So, it is clear to the honest mind, that Impenitent Sinners have to face the anger and hatred of both Jesus and the Devil.
Their punishment by God will be consummated at the day of judgement when they will join the Devil and and all evildoers in Hell.
Matthew 25:31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory.
Matthew 25:46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
Romans 2:5 But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgement will be revealed.
Romans 2:16 This will take place on the day when God will judge men’s secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares.
2 Peter 2:9 if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials and to hold the unrighteous for the day of judgement, while continuing their punishment.
When you study the Doctrine of the Lost, you will see their situation both in life and in death.
