Biblical Predestination

Biblical Predestination

Predestination is spoken of in the Bible. The word "predestined" occurs 4 times in the New Testament. In Romans 8:29-30, “For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He did predestinate, them He also called: and whom He called, them He also justified: and whom He justified, them He also glorified.” and in Ephesians 1:5, 11 “Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will" and  “In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will.” The English "predestined" comes from the Greek “proorizo”, which is comprised of two words, pro, meaning "before, above", and horizo, meaning "determine, ordain, limit, boundary". Thus, predestined means to "predetermine, decide beforehand, appoint beforehand."
