Do you realize that John 3:16 is a warning as well as a promise?


Most people accentuate the promise in John 3:16 "whoever believes in Him will...have everlasting life." But very few people recognize the warning..."For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him WILL NOT PERISH, but will have everlasting life." The warning is this: the only way to everlasting life is by believing in the Son. If you don't believe in Who He is, you will perish!

    The question is, who are the sheep and who are the goats? I believe that they are all Jews, the Christ believing Jew and the Christ hating Jew. And Christ seperated them just before the sieg of Jerusalem. But that's my belief.

    Exactly! James tells us that even the demons believe, and they're shaking in fear of what's coming! No, there's something more that what we've "believing"
