THE CROSS IS THE POWER OF GOD
UNTO THEM THAT ARE 'SAVED'
THE CROSS IS FOOLISHNESS UNTO THEM THAT SHALL 'PERISH'
I Corinthians 1:18
YOUR SALVATION WAS PAID FOR
AT THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST
"THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD WHICH IS BY FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST UNTO ALL and UPON ALL THEM THAT BELIEVE:"
"THE PROMISE BY FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST MIGHT BE GIVEN TO THEM THAT BELIEVE."
"And THE GLORY WHICH THOU GAVEST ME I HAVE GIVEN THEM; THAT THEY MAY BE ONE, EVEN AS WE ARE ONE:"

Jesus deserves the GLORY of God, the Father therefore; Jesus´ record will be your record for receiving the GLORY Jesus had with God, the Father before He came to earth.
"BE YE THEREFORE PERFECT, EVEN AS YOUR FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN IS PERFECT."
If you are perfect like God everything should be OK for you! If you ARE NOT PERFECT as God is perfect your next best option will be understanding the Word of God accurately –»» at least when it comes to your SALVATION (A.K.A.) BEING SAVED FROM THE SECOND DEATH. The record of JESUS CHRIST'S PERFECTION will stand as THE BORN-AGAIN CONVERTED BELIEVERS RECORD OF PERFECTION.
"And from JESUS CHRIST, who IS THE FAITHFUL WITNESS, and THE FIRST BEGOTTEN OF THE DEAD, and THE PRINCE OF THE KINGS OF THE EARTH. Unto him that loved us,and WASHED US FROM OUR SINS IN HIS OWN BLOOD,"
Our sins must be removed from our life. Jesus lived a life without sin. To enter into the Kingdom of Heaven and the presence of God, the Father and Jesus Christ we must be without sin. OUR RECORD WAS MADE TO MATCH JESUS' RECORD OF LIFE WITHOUT SIN.
"Notwithstanding in this REJOICE NOT, THAT THE SPIRITS ARE SUBJECT UNTO YOU;
but RATHER REJOICE, BECAUSE YOUR NAMES ARE WRITTEN IN HEAVEN."
"For this is good and acceptable in the sight of GOD OUR SAVIOUR; Who WILL HAVE ALL MEN TO BE SAVED, and to COME UNTO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH. For there is ONE GOD, and ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD and MEN, THE MAN CHRIST JESUS; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time."
I Timothy 2:3-6
The converted believer has a relationship DIRECTLY WITH GOD, THE FATHER and with the Mediator Jesus Christ.
EXAMPLE OF MEDIATOR: in today's modern world of professional sports it is common to have an agent/mediator. The mediator is a third person that stands in between THE OWNER OF THE TEAM and THE PERSPECTIVE NEW TEAM MEMBER. Once the owner of the team has sanction an offer the Mediator / Agent delivers the offer to the perspective team member for Approval / Acceptance or Disapproval/Nonacceptance.
God, the Eternal Father, did the same things when reconciliation was sanctioned for all mankind and delivered to earth by the Mediator Jesus Christ directly and supported in full by the Holy Spirit.
NOW! The only decision is! If you know what God has done for you –»» you can 'CHOOSE' BELIEF UNTO CONVERSION –»» there will be 'NO CONDEMNATION' with this choice. Your only other choice is to 'NOT CHOOSE' BELIEF UNTO CONVERSION –»» God says 'CONDEMNATION' comes with this choice. You will be condemned unto the 'SECOND DEATH' –»» No salvation for you. You will be judged according to your own works.
"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."
Whosoever believeth in the completed work that God, the Father, did in Jesus Christ while upon earth for your salvation --> shall be saved and have everlasting life. It is the RECORD OF JESUS CHRIST'S LIFE lived upon earth that provides a PERFECT RECORD before God, the Father. ALL that are SEEN THROUGH JESUS CHRIST'S PERFECT RECORD SHALL HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE and NEVER PERISH. They WILL NEVER END UP in the KINGDOM OF THE SERPENT or the KINGDOM OF DARKNESS.
"And he said, UNTO YOU IT IS GIVEN TO KNOW THE MYSTERIES OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD: but TO OTHERS IN PARABLES; that SEEING THEY MIGHT NOT SEE, and HEARING THEY MIGHT NOT UNDERSTAND. Now the parable is this: THE SEED IS THE WORD OF GOD. Those BY THE WAY SIDE ARE THEY THAT HEAR; then COMETH THE DEVIL, and TAKETH AWAY THE WORD OUT OF THEIR HEARTS, LEST THEY SHOULD BELIEVE AND BE SAVED. They ON THE ROCK ARE THEY, WHICH, WHEN THEY HEAR, RECEIVE THE WORD WITH JOY; and THESE HAVE NO ROOT, WHICH FOR A WHILE BELIEVE, and IN TIME OF TEMPTATION FALL AWAY. And that which FELL AMONG THORNS ARE THEY, WHICH, WHEN THEY HAVE HEARD, GO FORTH, and are CHOKED WITH CARES and RICHES AND PLEASURES OF THIS LIFE, and BRING NO FRUIT TO PERFECTION. But that on the GOOD GROUND are they, which in an honest and good heart, HAVING HEARD THE WORD, KEEP IT, and BRING FORTH FRUIT with PATIENCE. TAKE HEED THEREFORE HOW YE HEAR: for WHOSOEVER HATH, TO HIM SHALL BE GIVEN; and WHOSOEVER HATH NOT, FROM HIM SHALL BE TAKEN EVEN THAT WHICH HE SEEMETH TO HAVE."
Luke 8:10-15, 18
