In order that everyone who believes in Him [who cleaves to Him, trusts Him, and relies on Him] may [c]not perish, but have eternal life and [actually] live forever!
16For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten ([d]unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life. Jn.3:15-16 (AMP)
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only and unique Son, so that everyone who trusts in him may have eternal life, instead of being utterly destroyed. CJB
“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. MSG

God loved the people of this world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who has faith in him will have eternal life and never really die. CEV
We are only called to believe that’s why we are called BELIEVERS. Believing is possession. We become whatever we believe. We posses what so ever we believe.
Believe only what the scriptures say about you not what your body, pocket or circumstance is saying to you. As you believe the word your situation will have no choice but to realign itself with your believe. The devil is not the problem what you believe is actually the problem. You believe that it’s normal to be broke and sick and expect something different in your life? Believe is like magnet. It’s attracts all the things you believe to you even unconsciously.
Believe in a long healthy and prosperous life and you’ll see it. Believe in the goodness of God and you will constantly see it.
You will not perish and can never perish because you believe in Jesus.
The scripture above says “whosoever believes”. It does not matter who you are or what you have done. If you simply believe in Jesus, the Christ, we all have the same experience. You will never be put to shame, will never be condemned, will never be destroyed, and will never be lost in hell. Believe only!
Whether you’re white black or Hispanic, it does not matter. The call is to “whosoever”.
There are things that can’t happen to us who believe and have therefore received Zoë (eternal life). This is the very life of God. It’s what makes God, God. This life is allergic to sicknesses, poverty and curses. You can’t have this life and know it and still suffer the works of darkness. Even if you’re suffering it now (because of ignorance) by acknowledging the good things that are in you all those aliens will vanish.
The life you have now as a believer is superior life. By this life we rule, reign and dominate the earth. The whole forces of darkness put together can’t survive you.
By this life we have escaped forever the wrath, anger and judgment of God (Jn. 3:36). Fear of judgment and condemnation is gone forever. We are free.
God loved and still loves the world. He loved the whole of humanity and gave his only begotten son to save them by his death on the cross.
The scripture above did not say God loved the church or that he loved Christians. It’s says God loved the WORLD. God loves all but not all may enjoy that love until they believe in Jesus, the Christ.
God’s love is a giving love. Our Father, God is a giver. He is liberal, generous, unsparing and extravagant. He is always ready to lavish every good thing that makes life comfortable and enjoyable to us. Whatever he has is for us his kids. Let’s make up our minds to enjoy it all. Don’t postpone your enjoyment to heaven. Enjoy it here. There is more than we can ever need here and hereafter. He is willing and ever ready to lavish his goodness on you anytime any day.
The word “perish” here means eternal damnation – hell fire. So it invariably means anyone who believes in Jesus will not go to hell. This is good news. Jesus went to hell in your place. So we can read john 3:17 thus:
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not go to hell but have eternal life.
