Q1.)How does calling on the name of the Lord save you?

The Creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable. 29 He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength. 30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall,
31 But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.

God sent Him here to live a perfect life-die as a substitute to pay for the sins of all who call on His name and repent or turn from their sins.

Nicodemus was told this in John 3 by Jesus.
“5 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
Q4) When did this calling on the Lord’s will really save you?
From the beginning of time the Lord decreed it. He guarantees it.
