The Patience of God is a 2 edged Sword.
On one side, it is a benefit. Because if you repent and obey Him, you get mercy and are protected from most of the worst consequences of sin.
On the other side, if you don’t repent, it’s dangerous because all you get is more time to harden your heart and lie to yourself. You end up killing your own fruit and/or sealing your own fate.
Ecclesiastes 8:11 Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.
