“[FOR MANY WALK, OF WHOM] I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they [ARE THE ENEMIES OF THE CROSS OF CHRIST]: whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, [WHO MIND EARTHLY THINGS]” (Philippians 3:18–19).
“[FOR THE PREACHING OF THE CROSS IS] to them that perish foolishness; but [UNTO US WHICH ARE SAVED] it is [THE POWER OF GOD]” (1 Corinthians 1:19).
“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).
JESUS, the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD says: “These things have I written unto you that [BELIEVE ON THE NAME] of the Son of God; that ye may know [THAT YE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE], and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God” (1 John 5:13).
“[IF ANY MAN WILL COME AFTER ME], [LET HIM DENY HIMSELF], and [TAKE UP HIS CROSS DAILY], and [FOLLOW ME]” (Luke 9:23).
“[AND HE THAT TAKETH NOT HIS CROSS, AND FOLLOWETH AFTER ME, IS NOT WORTHY OF ME]” (Matthew 10:38).
“[I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE]: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).
“I am with you alway, [EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).
