People's Bible Notes for Romans 10:13


Ro 10:13 For whoso ever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. See Joe 2:32. To "call upon the name of the Lord" implies, (1) That the true God (Jehovah, in the Hebrew quotation) shall be approached in worship, and (2) that there shall be something more than saying, "Lord, Lord", etc. (Mt 7:21,22). The language, wherever used, implies coming to the Lord and calling on him in his appointed way. Compare Ac 22:16 2:21 Ge 12:8. This promise of Joel, since it says "whosoever", is not limited to the Jewish race.

    The gospel of God cometh only from God, our Father which art in heaven. Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: Father, the hour is come glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. The mercy of man is toward his neighbour but the mercy of the Lord is upon all flesh: he reproveth, and nurtureth, and teacheth and bringeth again, as a shepherd his flock. Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation, And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.

    All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. For God made not death: neither hath he pleasure in the destruction of the living. For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

    John 3:27 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. Titus 3:10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; 11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.

    It is so very difficult to reach the the hearing of those who care little of Jesus's gospel. Needing nothing, enjoying aggression as entertainment, and blocking out any attempt to even consider there be a better way to live. My very own brother and sister are a classic example. My approach is love and laughter. As for the "hearing impaired " I should send by mail more pictures and letters.
