Whoever

“It will happen that whoever will call on the name of the Lord shall be saved; for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be those who escape, as the Lord has said, and among the remnant, those whom God calls.”

Here is a verse of great certainty. Here is a verse of promise and sure hope. Those who call on the Lord, shall be saved. 

“All those who the Father gives me will come to me. Him who comes to me I will in no way cast out.”

John 6:37

The promise is secure. Whoever comes to the Lord or salvation will not be turned away. In that holy city of Mount Zion and Jerusalem, there will be the multitude of people who have been delivered from the clutches of sin and have escaped the day of God’s fierce wrath. The Lord has promised it, so it is true and will happen. There will be a remnant that will be saved for the coming kingdom, a people of God saved for the Lord Jesus Christ and who will not just escape but entering their rest forever. All judgment will be past for them and they will enter the inheritance stored up for them in heaven. There they will reign with Christ forever in peace and glory.

Why would we pass up on this? The choice could not be more stark. Eternal bliss or eternal loss. The offer of mercy goes out to all. Whoever will come and repent and leave their sin, put their trust in the living Saviour will be in that blessed remnant. Not everyone will be saved, only those who will humble themselves and respond to the call of God. 

Beloved, the offer could not be clearer. 

“Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved..”

Romans 10:13

It is a certainty and God waits to hear the call of repentant sinners who will seek Him. Do not delay. The days are becoming short and the messages are not clear. The Word of the Lord calls out to you… escape while there is still time…
