Check the fuel pressure. If you do not have any fuel pressure, check the fuel pump operations. The PGM-FI main relay is known to fail causing intermittent non-starting.

Sparks, compression and fuel pressure. Try some starting fluid. If it fails to start, check the timing belt for skipped tooth.

If everything lines up good and the sparks are orane, you have a weak ignition coil that is not providing sparks strong enough to start the engine. A weak ignition coil would also fail when it is hot.
