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.

Discussion for Romans 10

  • Baldeagle
    I think it is pretty clear that God's intention, plan and purpose was for all people to be saved and to receive everything He has in store for them. Of course the Promise was offered to the Jews first, after all they are His people, they were the ones who were to go out into the world to teach, and preach with signs, wonders and miracles. Through faith, the hearing and obeying the Word we are too.
  • Gloria schiszik
    Here is what I wrote after reading Romans Chapter 10: ROMANS CHAPTER TEN LOOK AT ROMANS, CHAPTER TEN, VERSE NINE. PLEASE PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO EVERY LINE. TWO THINGS MUST BE DONE TO BE SAVED NO EXCEPTIONS, THIS CANNOT BE WAVED. FIRST ONE COMES STRAIGHT FROM THE MOUTH NOT MAN S, BUT GOD S WORD SO DO NOT POUT. JESUS IS THE LORD, THESE WORDS MUST BE SAID COMING OUT OF THE HEART, AND NOT THE HEAD. BELIEVING GOD RAISED JESUS FROM THE DEAD IS TRUE. THIS IS CONVEYING THE SECOND THING YOU MUST DO. CONTINUE ON TO THE TENTH VERSE, AND YOU WILL FIND MORE AMAZING TRUTHS ARE SAID IN THIS TENTH LINE. WITH OUR MOUTH CONFESSION MUST BE PROCLAIMED FOR THE PROMISE OF SALVATION TO BE GAINED. WITH THIS HEART-FELT BELIEF, COMES RIGHTEOUSNESS. TIME IS SHORT, SO DO NOT HESITATE OR MAKE A FUSS. GOD IS TRUE TO HIS WORD, PUT GOD FIRST ALWAYS. HE WILL OPEN YOUR EYES, AND REMOVE THE HAZE HE IS OUR SAVIOUR, COMFORTER, TEACHER, AND MORE. HE HAS PROMISED GIFTS AND TREASURES GALORE GOD IS LOVE AND LIGHT THAT WILL NEVER DIM SEARCH FOR HIM . HE WILL LET YOU FIND HIM THESE ARE WORDS STRAIGHT FROM HIS BOOK WHY NOT OPEN YOUR BIBLE AND TAKE A LOOK. GOD IS CALLING ALL SINNERS TO REPENTANCE MANY ARE HESITATING, JUST SITTING ON A FENCE. DON T MISS OUT AND LOSE YOUR HEAVENLY PLACE THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR HIS CHILDREN VIA GRACE
