"Predestined, Called, Justified, Glorified"

“Predestined, Called, Justified, Glorified”

Blessings folk!

Believers are foreknown by God - from before the foundation of creation.
Believers are predestined by God - to become conformed to the image of His (Father’s) Son. He (Son) is the firstborn among many brethren.

Now, observe the additional truths…

Rom 8:29-30
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.

Note the action.
“He”...the Most High God…He does all this.

He predestined.

Those He predestined He “called” = kaleo

  • to call aloud...to call forth
  • to invite
  • to give a name

Those He called He also “justified” = dikaioo
  • render righteous
  • declare, pronounce one to be as he should be

Those He justified He “glorified” = doxazo
  • to think, suppose, be of opinion
  • to praise, extol, magnify, celebrate
  • to honor, do honor to, hold in honor
  • to make glorious, adorn with luster, clothe with splendor

As Believers, the Lord has called us forth, He has declared us to be as we should be - righteous, and He releases praise, honor and glory now and in the future...in and through us.

Walk in these truths that the Lord has done for us.
