People's Bible Notes for Romans 10:9


Ro 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus. For the importance which Jesus attached to confession, see Mt 10:32 Lu 12:8 and compare Ac 8:37. To openly confess Christ in those days of persecution was a trial of faith of the severest kind. Note distinctly that there is no promise here to a concealed faith. And shalt believe in thine heart. That is, with all the heart. The belief must not be only a mental assent, but a belief that brings the whole man into loving trust and obedience to Christ. Such a faith is referred to in Ro 1:5 where the "obedience of faith" is described. Thou shalt be saved. Such a faith confessed unites its subject to Christ as his loving subject, and imparts to him the righteousness of those who have died to sin and been freed from the law. See Ro 6:1-4.

    One must also realize this book was not written to the lost or for the lost it was written to the church of Rome whom were already saved baptized n Jesus name and filled with the holy ghost
  • Derick perry for verse 9
    The confession with the mouth and belief deep down in the heart comes and is only valid when you truly let it all go and humbly submit to the lord god of heaven Jesus christ. It is in that moment when he pours out his spirit and fills you with the holy ghost in which you will speak with new tongues... confession with the mouth this is the work that proves the profession of faith without works faith is dead u say I believe how do u know u have the salvation if there 's no proof and as for they deaf they are deaf not mute they can still come to true repentance and profess as the spirit gives the utterance and as for the mute god sees not as man sees but god looks upon the heart plus my god has all power in heaven and in earth if he wants you to speak you will speak...

    what happens to the deaf? how do they receive their salvation because the bible says "confess with your mouth and believe in your heart to receive salvation " can believing in your heart only grant you salvation?
  • Moses njenga for verse 9
    Salvation is for those that put their trust in HIS finished work, then boldly unashamely confess HIS Lordship in your life. Paul set the tone when he declared that he is not ashamed of the gospel for it is the power of GOD unto salvation.
