Disobedient (Non-Elect): hell upon death and final judgment when the King returns

Predetermine (predestine)

Predestine describes the certainty of God’s sequence of election, timing and outcome. Just as God has a predetermined plan for events, He has a predetermined plan for Non-Believers.

No better of an example than the nation of Israel itself.

As its Creator, God foreknew the nation and foresaw that Israel would fail to fulfill His purpose for them, reject the Messiah and be replaced by another people (Rom 9:6-10:13).

Based on this foreknowledge, God provided prophets to warn the nation of Israel of their lack of faith and bring them back into their covenant relationship (Rom 10:16-21; Deut 32:21; Isa 53:1; 65:1-2).

With omniscience, the nation’s failure was anticipated in God’s plan so that God’s word would not be discredited (Rom 9:6).

In their rejection of Jesus, the disbelieving Jews set the stage for His crucifixion and atonement in Jerusalem on the Day of Preparation, which would fulfill the Mosaic Covenant.

Despite the nation of Israel’s rejection of Jesus, God’s plan continued to be fulfilled: there was a remnant of true Jewish Believers (Rom 11:4-10), Gentiles were grafted into the root of Abraham (Rom 11:11-24) and the nation will be restored in the end (Rom 11:23-32).

And in the process of recovering mankind and re-establishing the kingdom of God, God is glorified (John 17:1-5).
