You have a choice as a believer: you can walk in the Spirit, you can walk in the flesh. Don’t think for a moment that you can walk in the flesh and not pay the consequences. You can’t mock God and get away with it. I mean, this is essential throughout Scripture.
You have people like Nebuchadnezzar who mocked God back in Daniel. And what happened to him? He was turned into an animal. You have Belshazzar in chapter 5 who mocked God. And what happened to him? Devastating destruction of his entire kingdom. God will not be mocked.
You have Romans chapter 1, where “the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who hold the truth in unrighteousness.” They turn from the Creator to the creature. Romans 1 describes a mockery of God, and the wrath of God is released on men when they mock God. The wrath in Romans is the wrath of turning them over to their sin, to immorality, homosexuality, and a reprobate mind.
Now understand this: the wrath of God has a number of forms. Let’s start with the final form: eternal wrath. God’s eternal wrath is hell, where all unbelievers will suffer punishment forever. That’s His eternal wrath. ~ John MacArthur

New Testament: Galatians 6:1-18
Summary: Bear One Another’s Burdens, Final Warning, and Benediction
Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
~ Galatians 6:7-10
