Wesley's Notes for Romans 10:12


10:12 The same Lord of all is rich - So that his blessings are never to be exhausted, nor is he ever constrained to hold his hand. The great truth proposed in #Ro 10:11 is so repeated here, and in #Ro 10:13|, and farther confirmed, #Ro 10:14,15|, as not only to imply, that whosoever calleth upon him shall be saved; but also that the will of God is, that all should savingly call upon him.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 10:12


Ro 10:12 For there is no difference between Jew and Greek. The Jew objected to salvation, instead of by the law. Paul has just shown that righteousness could not be obtained by the law, secondly, that the prophets had predicted salvation by faith. But the Jew is now supposed to object that this salvation was for Jews only, yet Paul is preaching it to the Gentiles. Hence he declares that it is for Greek (Gentile), as well as Jew, as shown by the passage just quoted in Ro 10:11. It says, "Every one that believeth", etc. (Isa 28:16). He further shows in Ro 10:13 that the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him, of whatever race, by a second quotation from the prophets, found in Joe 2:32.

    Irene 123: Thanks for the update, I see that you are will book learned and now more then I for I am still learning but I think you miss the point READ John 3 : 16 again and when I do it does not say you will have to have the HOLY SPIRIT but believe in the LORD JESUS CHRIST. Maybe it's the way I believe but it's my way.
  • R.J.
    No they can not be saved. Only people that are at an unaccountable age can be saved with out asking Jesus to forgive them of the sins and to ask him to be there savior.

    Bud - Rom. 10:8-9 (Rom.1:7 "called to be saints"). The church in Rome was already established; Paul wasn't writing to sinners. Jesus' church was established in Acts ch. 2 (Acts 2:37-38). The 'calling' and 'believing' were already done for these saints in Acts 2:38. Paul was just reminding them of this because he knew some were weak in their N.T. belief and were thinking about the O.T. law they had
  • A disciple
    Thank you, Bud! While we are commanded to judge righteous judgment, and not to hate our brother in our heart by allowing sin upon him; the things that belong only to God, is NOT for us to meddle in! There is a very interesting part in Ezekiel, that speaks of even Sodom and Samaria being restored by God to their former estate; (Eze. 16:53-55); which sheds some great light upon that subject.
