To ‘cross the bridge’ from this Lifetime to obtain LIFE we must BELIEVE in the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD.
“[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” (John 3:36).
“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.” (John 3:16-18).
“For as the Father rises up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will. For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
That all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honoreth not the Son honoreth not the Father which hath sent him.
For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; and hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man” (John 5: 21–23, 26–27).
The only begotten Son of God, “Jesus saith unto him, ‘[I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE: NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME]’” (John 14:6).
