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.

    NEHEMIAH 1:5 and said I beseech thee O LORD GOD of heaven the great and terrible GOD that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love HIM and observe HIS commandments PSALM 25:10 all the paths of THE LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep HIS covenant and HIS testimonies ***** PROVERBS 14:7 go thou from the presence of a foolish man when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge *****

    MARK 8:35 for whosoever will save his life shall lose it but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospels the same shall save it JOHN 5:34 but I receive not testimony from man but these things I say that you might be saved 2 Thessalonians 2:10 and with all deceiveableness of unrighteousness in them that perish because they received not the love of the truth that they might be saved
  • James
    Wonderful that it is Christ who saves through his death and resurrection. Although it is correct to be humble and sincere when coming to God through Christ the emphasis should solely be on his death and resurrection. Romans 9:16 “ So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.” God bless you all and Praise to Almighty God for his grace and mercy.
    The Word of God has power to lead you to a place with a lot of joy and happinness thus paving way for thd chosen of the Lord to enter into his destination.
  • Kerrry A.Schlegel
    Salvation has to do with humility, and being sincere! God knows exactly what goes on in our hearts, and if one humbles themselves with God and are sincere about wanting to get saved, he will save that person! Amen.
  • A disciple
    Romans 10:10 "For with the heart man believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." Ezekiel 33:31 "And they come unto thee as the people comes, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goes after their covetousness." In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus began to teach us what it means to have the kingdom of heaven within us what was true religion and piety, and what was false. MAny times and many ways He protests to us, "Thou shalt NOT be as the hypocrites!" Yet the doctrine of the Pharisees persists and multitudes believe that merely "Mouthing" the words is all it needs to get their names in the Divine Registry! You can't put words in someone's mouth that isn't in their heart and without the truth in the heart, the words will not mean a thing to God. They have to know the Truth in order to acknowledge the Truth unto a saving faith in Christ. "You cannot give what you haven't got!"
