As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up: that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 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 shall endure to the end

shall be saved.   Jn 3:14-17, Matt.10:22

Scripture

I John 2:7-17 Brethren, I write no new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you heard from the beginning. Again, a new commandment I write to you, which thing is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining. He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now. He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him. But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes. I write to you, little children,
 because your sins are forgiven you for His name’s sake.
 I write to you, fathers,
 because you have known Him who is from the beginning.
I write to you, young men,
 because you have overcome the wicked one.
I write to you, little children,
 because you have known the Father.
 I have written to you, fathers,
 because you have known Him who is from the beginning.
I have written to you, young men,
 because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you,
 and you have overcome the wicked one. Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
