2Pe 3:16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
2Pe 3:17

Jas 5:19 Brethren, 
if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him;

Rev 3:1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.

Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.

Rev 3:6 He that hath an ear, let him 
hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

(The letter above was written to BELIEVERS in the church of Sardis).


Luk 13:23 Then said one unto him, Lord, 
are there few that be saved? And he said unto them,
Luk 13:24
 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
Luk 13:25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:

Luk 13:26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.
Luk 13:27 
But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye 
workers of iniquity.


Mat 5:27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:

Mat 5:28 But I say unto you, That 
whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
Mat 5:29 And if thy right eye offend thee, 
pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
Mat 5:30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.


...

Bottom line, where there is no repentance, there is no salvation.

Col 2:6
 
As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:

(In the same way you received Christ... how? By repentance... so walk ye in Him... meaning, in the same way you first received Christ, continue in the same way in Him, always repenting and turning away from sin.)


R
om 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Rom 3:25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, 
to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are PAST,
 through the forbearance of God;

According to Scriptures, PAST sins are forgiven, not future.

We do not worry about the future, we worry about the HERE and NOW. Are we sinning? STOP! Repent and resist. Walk holy. Live holy. If we do not -

Heb 12:14 
Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:
Heb 12:15 
Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;
Heb 12:16 Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.

Heb 12:17 For ye know how that 
afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.

...


When Jesus says It is FINISHED, He is referring to the physical presence of the High Priest and the physical temple building where sacrifices are needed for the remission of sins. Why? Because He now takes on the role of the High Priest in the heavenlies, and 
our bodies are now the temple of God where God resides in us, and we are admonished to continue to approach Him in faith for remission of sins, our duty still remains the same, if we do not continually repent and approach Him, He will not forgive us our present sins:

1Jn 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

1Jn 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
1Jn 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
1Jn 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
1Jn 1:9
 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.



Bottom line is, God is holy and cannot stand sin, whether it be in a believer or an unbeliever. Sin has no place in Him. Sin has no place in heaven. You cannot say you believe in God and expect to go to heaven if you hold to some kind of sin (whether in your mind, or in action). Let sin go, and follow Christ. The way to Christ is narrow. There are few that be saved. The 
way of salvation is to be strived at, continually, all the days of our life on this earth.
