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 -
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;

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
