are a lost sinner under the judgment of God and headed for hell
“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one…For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”
“For the wages of sin is death…”
“But the…unbelieving…shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death”
"The wicked shall be turned into hell..."
That Jesus Christ took your eternal judgment and died physically and spiritually on the cross for your sins, and rose again so you could have eternal life
"Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures"
(1 Cor 15:3-4)
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us...the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord”.
(Rom 5:8; 6:23b)
“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”.
Upon the Lord in faith to forgive you of your sins and save you
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation…For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved”.
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name”.
"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved..."
