The Word is right in front of you when you're reading the Bible. Pray that God will give you eyes to see and ears to hear.
I'm in the mood to dissect in order to comprehend what the text says. Don't take my word for it. Open up your Bibles and read it for yourself.
Let's begin, shall we?
But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim); (Romans 10:8-13)
The Word of FAITH. Got it!
because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:8-13)
So, if I CONFESS with my mouth that JESUS IS LORD and I BELIEVE in MY HEART that GOD raised HIM from the dead......I WILL BE SAVED.
The text doesn't say I might be saved. It says I WILL BE SAVED.
It's not that hard, people. That's why they call it GOOD NEWS.
HE paid the price. HE is the only one who is without sin.
Did you read my previous post? It's the blood of Christ. JESUS paid the price once for all time.
CONFESS and BELIEVE! It's not that hard. Why? Because He loves us that much.
THINK ABOUT IT.
For with the heart one believes and is justified, (Romans 10:8-13)
That's why they call it SAVING FAITH.
and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
You internalize this process with your brain.
Once again, that's why it's called a FAITH that SAVES. That's ultimately how we are redeemed AND forgiven.
For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” (Romans 10:8-13)
Well what do you know? The words are right there in front of you. THINK.
For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. (Romans 10:8-13)
God is fair and just. All you have to do is call on Him. Ask him to heal you and open the eyes of your heart.
For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”(Romans 10:8-13)
EVERYONE......Look at that! Call on the name of the Lord and you WILL be SAVED.
Don't let anyone tell you different.
If anyone tells you something different from what the text says you have to question their motivation to control and manipulate.
There are plenty of great bible-based churches out there that don't misuse or mistreat their congregation.
If you attend a church that says you can't be saved if you don't go to their church stay far far away from them. They are more than likely a cult.
