Precept upon precept.
Line by line.
Word by Word.
We shall slowly continue to consider this passage…
For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren;
and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified.
The Lord foreknew.
- to have knowledge before hand
- to foreknow of those whom God elected to salvation
- to predestinate
“Foreknew” from what time perspective?
Before the foundations of the creation were spoken into existence.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for us.
We cannot comprehend.
We are created beings existing in a time-line that moves forward.
The Lord God is not.
- all that has been/all that could have been
- all that is/all that could be
- all that will be/all that could be
God is not limited by time.
He knows past, present, future and all permutations thereof.
Such is the wonder and the glory of the Lord.
Trust in Him.
Rest in Him.
