John 3:14-21 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him SHOULD NOT PERISH, but HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him SHOULD NOT PERISH, but HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
HE THAT BELIEVETH ON HIM IS NOT CONDEMNED:
but HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT IS CONDEMNED ALREADY
because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
And this is the condemnation,
that light is come into the world,
and men loved darkness rather than light, BECAUSE THEIR DEEDS WERE EVIL.
For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
John 3:36 He that BELIEVETH ON THE SON HATH EVERLASTING LIFE:
and he that BELIEVETH NOT THE SON SHALL NOT SEE LIFE; but THE WRATH OF GOD ABIDETH ON HIM.
QUESTION: What is the obvious contrast of the above verses?
John 5:22-24 For as the Father JUDGETH NO MAN, but hath COMMITTED ALL JUDGMENT UNTO THE SON: That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father, He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. Verily, verily, I say unto you,
He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and SHALL NOT COME INTO CONDEMNATION; but is PASSED FROM DEATH UNTO LIFE.
John 8:34-36 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free,
YE SHALL BE FREE INDEED.
John 10:26-30 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them ETERNAL LIFE; and they SHALL NEVER PERISH, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and NO MAN IS ABLE TO PLUCK THEM OUT OF MY FATHER’S HAND. I and my Father are one.
Acts 13:38-39 Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through THIS MAN is preached unto you THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS: and BY HIM all that BELIEVE are JUSTIFIED FROM ALL THINGS, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.
Mark 9:42-48 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea. And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
Matthew 25:42 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into EVERLASTING FIRE, prepared for the devil and his angels. (Those words were spoken by the Lord Jesus Christ, the kindest man who ever lived)
NOTE: Someone asked, «Where is hell,» another answered, «At the end of a Christ-less life.» A person who wants to go to heaven should trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and a person who wants to go to hell should reject the Lord Jesus Christ.
There is total and absolute forgiveness of sin in Jesus Christ.
There is no forgiveness of sin apart from Jesus Christ.
Matthew 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
