CHRISTIAN PREDESTINATION DOCTRINE EXCERPTS JCSB:
BY DR. DONALD E. BATTLE: ONE OF THE TOP CHRISTIAN THEOLOGIANS OF THE 21ST. CENTURY IN AMERICA, THE EXPERT ON THE DIVINITY OF JESUS CHRIST.
Predestination Define: The Christian Doctrine that God with the attribute of FOREKNOWLEDGE predestinates those for Salvation. The term Elect or Election means those Chosen or Called by God’s Amazing Grace.
The Christian Doctrine of Predestination is a Theological Enigma (mystery), however, here is some understanding: Since God the Father has all knowledge He knows the past, present, and future, God the Father look into the future, and saw all those accepting the Salvation of His Son Jesus Christ. We as humans do not know who will accept God’s Salvation, but God knows. Everyone has a free will to accept or reject the Salvation of the Lord Jesus Christ.
In Christian Theology God’s FOREKNOWLEDGE is His ATTRIBUTION OF OMNISCIENCE, which means all Knowing and all wise. When we say God is omniscience, we mean that God knows all that there is to know. There is nothing that is outside the capacity of God’s conception and understanding. God neither studies nor learns because God’s KNOWLEDGE is limitless.
In the Gospel of John 3:16 reads “16 (JESUS SALVATION) For GOD (THE FATHER) so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son (JESUS), that WHOSOEVER believeth (INDICATE THAT EVERYONE HAS A FREE WILL) in him (JESUS) should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Romans 8:29 read “For whom he (GOD THE FATHER) did FOREKNOW, he also did PREDESTINATE [to be] conformed to the image of his SON (JESUS), that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
