Ignorance: uninformed, unaware
Truth: speaking reality into a person’s life, making a record of what God deems as Truth/fact
“Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.”
A Holy and Just God must judge sin. But God in His mercy and grace made provision for that judgment to be transferred to His Only Begotten Son, who knew no sin but became sin for us; receiving the just punishment for us all forgiving us all our sin.
2 Corinthians 5:21
Luke 23:41/ Romans 3:21-26/ John 3:17-21/ Luke 23:34
Those of us who repent and acknowledge God’s only provision; Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the cross and believe in His resurrection – proof of eternal life, are saved and spiritually enter the Kingdom of God escaping God’s wrath and eternal judgment.
John 3:16 /Romans 10:8-13
After receiving and believing the TRUTH, the believer develops the faith and becomes “born again” entering the Kingdom of God transformed through times of trials and testings, abiding in Christ’s love through His Word and faith, restored into the image and character of God, remaining, and reigning at Christ’s side as His Bride forevermore.

For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and be glad
and give him glory!
For the wedding of the Lamb has come,
and his bride has made herself ready.
Fine linen, bright and clean,
was given her to wear.”
(Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God’s holy people.)
