Isaiah 45:22 – calling the name

16-01-2021 - Posted by Andre Piet

Turn toward Me and be saved all the limits of the earth, For I am El, and there is no other. By Myself have I sworn (…) For to Me shall bow every knee, And every tongue shall swear

All the Bible testifies that there is only one Name that saves a man. Only YAHWEH is Savior. That is also the meaning of the name of Jesus or Yeshua: YAHWEH saves! Only by calling on the one Name, a person is saved. “For whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Rom. 10:13).

Salvation takes place through the invocation of the Name. Invocation is the means of salvation, not the ground. If it were the ground, man himself would contribute to his salvation. As a human ‘finishing touch’. God saves 99% and man would do the rest. Completely excluded!

The living GOD is a Savior of all people (1Tim. 4:10) – that is a guarantee. And He Himself sees to it that “in the name of Jesus every knee should be bowing, celestial, terrestrial, and subterranean, and every tongue should acclaiming that Jesus Christ is Lord, for the glory of God the Father” (Philp.2).
