Many years ago God made a final offer to the nation of Israel. They had rejected His Son and decided that they knew better than to follow what God had revealed to them in the Bible (the Old Testament). In the early days of the Christian Church God sent preachers to the nation of Israel to warn them to change their thinking about Jesus, to repent, and turn back to God.
Here is the passage from Acts chapter 3 which records this
God appeals to these people, through Peter the Apostle. They had rejected Jesus unintentionally and the offer is for them to repent and trust Christ for salvation and forgiveness. They refused and for generations the message of the gospel has been sent out to the nations of the world. One day God will bless Israel again but they face many days of trouble before then.
Maybe you have been rejecting Jesus for a long time. God is willing to give you the opportunity to repent and believe the gospel.
God does not promise that these opportunities to repent will always be available. In Genesis chapter six God warned people that His Spirit would not always strive with man. When people harden their heart against God then at some stage God leaves them to face the consequences of their unbelief - read Romans chapter one to see this illustrated.
Thankfully we live in the period of time which Christians often call the 'Day of Grace'. The Bible states in 2 Cor 6:2 that now 'is the day of salvation'. You can still get saved while you are alive on earth. It's too late on the other side of death. God will close the offer of salvation to you when Jesus comes again - then it will be time for judgment.
This is such a vital issue you cannot afford to ignore it!
