The Apostle Paul also explained said: “Even the [RIGHTEOUSNESS] of God which is by [FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST] unto all and [UPON ALL THEM THAT BELIEVE]: for there is no difference:
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
To declare, I say, at this time his [RIGHTEOUSNESS]: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which [BELIEVETH IN JESUS]” (Romans 3:22-26).
“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).
John the disciple of Jesus also said: “MY little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, [JESUS CHRIST THE RIGHTEOUS]: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world” (1 John 2:1-2).
“And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and [ETERNAL LIFE]. Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen” (1 John 5:20-21).
“Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto [ETERNAL LIFE]” (Jude 1:21).

“Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, [WORLD WITHOUT END]. Amen” (Ephesians 3:21).
