repentance and reward

i have a question,

“21 But if the wicked turn away from all their sins that they have committed and keep all my statutes and do what is lawful and right, they shall surely live; they shall not die. 22 None of the transgressions that they have committed shall be remembered against them; for the righteousness that they have done they shall live. 23 Have I any pleasure in the death of the wicked, says the Lord God, and not rather that they should turn from their ways and live? 24 But when the righteous turn away from their righteousness and commit iniquity and do the same abominable things that the wicked do, shall they live? None of the righteous deeds that they have done shall be remembered; for the treachery of which they are guilty and the sin they have committed, they shall die.”

does repentance and doing the statues give “eternal life” ? some missionaries say that these verses are talking about earthly life, not “eternal life”

“There is nothing in Ezekiel 18 that teaches that an intermittent and temporary righteousness merits eternal life.”
