The apostle Peter preached a wonderful message at Jerusalem on what is known as the Day of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit attended the ministry with great power. Peter preached that Jesus Christ, who had been crucified and risen again from the dead, was most assuredly the Saviour of sinners. People from every nation had gathered at Jerusalem and were listening to this message.
During this message, Peter made a statement that is most remarkable, and applicable to people of all nations and races, whatever their colour or generation. He said, ‘Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved’. This is the Lord’s ‘whoever’, a promise that confirms that there are no racial barriers with the Lord and that He has just one way in which sinners from every nation and every walk of life must come, if they are to be saved and to be at peace in their relationship with the Lord God.
The call and promise of the Lord, goes out to all the world that ‘whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved’. Whoever trusts in the Lord’s provision, in Jesus Christ as Saviour, will be saved. Please be assured that with the Lord there is no racial barrier or inequality, either actual or perceived. God’s call goes out to all the world and His faithful name is to be trusted as being multi-racial and consistent to all. Thus God’s ‘whoever’ and His promise are as true today as when Peter spoke 2000 years ago.
