Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

October 27 - Evening

"for, 'Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.'

How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

- Romans 10:13-15

Calling on the Lord is Faith    

In Paul’s quote from the book of Joel (2:32) he says, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord
will be saved.” The use of the word “everyone” makes this inclusive to every person who “calls on
the name of the Lord.” When a person “calls” to the Lord they are expressing some kind of
confidence or conviction that he is willing and able to help them. Calling on God indicates faith
that what God has revealed about himself is true.

When a normal person calls someone on the phone they only dial numbers they believe have the potential to be answered. So, calling someone’s number shows a level of faith. Calling indicates
belief in the existence of the person being called and indicates faith that the person will respond.

But, of course, it is very frustrating to know who you want to call, but either can’t find the number
or don’t know the number. At least, with minimum information you can look the number up. How hopeless it is if you don’t even know who to call? You know you need help. You know you want
to call, but you don’t know who.

That’s where Paul takes Joel’s quote. After giving the universal promise that, “Everyone who calls
on the name of the Lord will be saved,” Paul asks, “How can they call on the one they have not believed in?” If people do not know the information they cannot believe it. And, they cannot
believe information if they have not heard the information. Thus, the need for someone to
tell them the information.

Sent to go Tell -->  Hear -->Know -->Believe -->Call

How excellent are those words that communicate the information about the person who can help.
Or, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” The person who hears the message now knows the promise of the one who can help. If the person who heard actually believes the message that they heard, they can call the one who can help.

We preach, teach and provide information. The person who hears decides if what they heard
and know is true. If they believe they will call. Calling indicates they have believed and
if they believe they will be saved.

One of the most beautiful ministries in the church is to be able to bring information to
someone looking for the Lord’s number.

  Christian Quote from Church History

"God has already revealed Truth in his Word through the prophets and apostles. We do not get to make up our own version of Christianity, or create 'Jesus' from our own imaginations, emotions or mystical experiences. Jesus has already been revealed."
- Galyn Wiemers





Something to Ponder??

Council of Chalcedon (451) - condemned the heresy of Monophysite that taught
Jesus could not have had
two natures in one person.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information


Onoma (Gr) - Name (Eng) - the Greek word onoma means name. A name often reflects the character of an thing or a person. A person's name can communicate that person's character.


Along a fault line on the eastern shoreline of the Dead Sea near Bab edh-Dhra (possible Sodom) and es-Safi (possible Zoar) are three additional sites. Archaeologists (Rast and Schaub) found that all five sites were abandoned at the same time around 2450-2350 BC covered with the same ash deposits from their destruction by fire.  One of the sites was a heavily fortified city (called Numeira today) was covered by seven feet of ash.

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I judge people for their lack of faith?
Do I expect people to call on the Lord when they know nothing about him?
Instead of judging and blaming people for their lack of faith and deeds, I will communicate
information to them about God so that they have something to hear, know and believe.
  "The crucible for silver and
the furnace for gold,
but man is tested by
the praise he receives."

Gezer Calendar



Map of the modern Old City of Jerusalem

The Gezer Calendar - contains some of the earliest Hebrew text which comes from around 1000-950 BC. The text is some kind of a calendar that lists the seasons and agricultural practices that was found in Gezer, Israel:

Two months of harvest (olives?)
Two months of planting (cereals?)
Two months are late planting (vegetables?)
One month of hoeing 
One month of barley-harvest
One month of harvest and festival (grain?)
Two months of grape harvesting
