I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God . He is my Lord and Savior . I shall not perish : I have everlasting life. It lasts forever. I have eternal life . I will have life and no perishing through out all eternity. That is the difference between everlasting and eternal.

Readers need to pay attention to the word "should " in this verse. It indicates that there is a condition that must be met in believing. With believing on the Lord Jesus Christ, there must be fruit to show one 's faith. Works of faith are your obedience to His word. The obedient works will produce spiritual fruit. Those who truly believe, will produce fruit. Those who do not produce fruit will be cut off.

the words may have,should have is not clear. do thy mean will have or might have/possibly have?

For us to have Everlasting Stage is God's wish for all human kinds. Therefore, live according to His examples and ever things He commands.
