Predetermine (predestine)

Predestine describes the certainty of God's sequence of election, timing and outcome.

When God elects, draws and calls, He sets into motion His plan for the recovery of mankind and the re-establishment of His kingdom at a specific time and at a specific place.

Based on what He foreknows, God pre-appoints the roles for each Believer and non-Believer, and how each will play according to His plan.

And while He knows who will be His people, He has a predetermined plan of sanctification for Believers and a plan of judgment for the disobedient who violate His standard of holiness.

For just as the Father has life in Himself, even so He gave to the Son also to have life in Himself; and He gave Him authority to execute judgment, because He is the Son of Man. Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice, and will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment. (John 5:26-29)
