The second death, the lake of fire or eternity with Christ.

Now this I say brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God;  nor can corruption inherit incorruption.  Behold I tell you a mystery:  We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed–in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality. So when this incorruptible has put on incorruption, and the mortal must put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is : Death is swallowed up in victory. 1 Corinthians 15:50-54;   Also read 15:55-58.

But I do want not you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those that have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.

For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God.

And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.  1 Thessalonians 4:13:18

Are you an unrepentant sinner?

Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and the books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:11-15

Psalm 33:18-22

Behold the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him, on those who hope in His mercy, To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield . For our hearts rejoice in Him, because we have trusted His holy name. Let your mercy, Oh Lord, be upon us, just as we hope in You.
