1 ”And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness:
was manifested in the flesh...” (1Timothy 3:16)

2 during His earthy ministry...
Two great feats of the LORD JESUS CHRIST during His earthy ministry... HE PAID SINS FULL PENALTY FOR US "All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all." (Isaiah 53:6) HE LIVED A PERFECT SINLESS LIFE FOR US "For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens" (Hebrews 7:26)

(John 1:29) "And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground." (Luke 22:44)

4 HE DID THIS FOR ME! His soul was not left in hell, the pains of death,
Me in HELL without Jesus Christ! "He (David) seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that His soul was not left in hell, neither His flesh did see corruption." (Acts 2:31) "whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it." (Acts 2:24)

5 ”And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul.
HELL IS REAL AND THERE IS NO SECOND CHANCE. Jesus Christ said… ”And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." (Matthew 10:28)

”He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." (John 3:18)

WHAT MUST I BELIEVE IN ORDER TO BE SAVED? "...I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you...that 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..." (1Corinthians 14:1-4)

(Acts 16:31) But…you must reach out in faith and take it. "For whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved." (Romans 10:13)

For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality… then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: ‘Death is swallowed up in victory.’” (1Corinthians 15:51-54)
