(Christ has already risen from the dead)

Romans 5:2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
NO GRACE, NO PLACE IN THE KINGDOM
Hebrews 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us [may we] have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
CALLED ARE TO CONFESS AND BELIEVE
Romans 10:9 That if thou (remnant) shalt confess [aorist active subjunctive] with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe [aorist active subjunctive] in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved [future passive indicative].
Romans 10:10 For with the heart man believeth [present passive, continuous action] unto [leading to] righteousness; and with the mouth confession [present passive, continuous action] is made unto [leading to] salvation.
SAVED FROM HUMILIATION
Romans 10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth [present active participle (faith)] on him shall not be ashamed [future passive, humiliated, disgraced].
BOTH JEW AND GENTILE
Romans 10:12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich [present active] unto all that call upon [epikalew, present middle] him.

HOW SHALL “THEY” CALL?
Romans 10:14 How then shall they (not “thee”, the remnant) call on [aorist middle] him in whom they have not believed [aorist active]? and how shall they believe [aorist active] in him of whom they have not heard [aorist active]? and how shall they hear [aorist active] without a preacher [present active participle]?
GOD SUPPLIES THAT NEED
Romans 10:15 And how shall they (the ones preaching) preach [aorist active subjunctive], except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach [present middle participle, preaching] the gospel of peace, and bring [present middle participle, preaching] glad tidings of good things!
CHRIST, PRIEST OF GOOD THINGS
