Hi, John 3:16-17 "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." Romans 5:6 "For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly." God sent His only begotten Son, the holy perfect Jesus Christ many years ago. Christ had come to earth, born in man flesh, born of the virgin Mary and by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit, God and Jesus Christ are one. Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Jesus Christ came to earth many years ago, who did many miracles and healings and came to bring restoration. Love, love was the reason why Christ Jesus came and He suffered and died on the cross and He had made the sacrifice to save. Receive Jesus Christ as Saviour and receive eternal life. Jesus Christ is the life. Jesus Christ came back to life and resurrected on the third day and then later on had ascended to Heaven, having victory over death. There is victory through believing and trusting in Jesus Christ. Romans 10:9-10 "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." Quote by Jesus Christ found at John 5:24 "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 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." 1 John 4:2 “Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:”
