The predestination means deciding in advance, and applies to the purposes of God included in the election.
The election is the choice made by God in Christ, of a people for himself (the real church). The predestination
covers what will happen to the people of God (all genuine believers in Christ).
God predestines its elected to be: Called (Rm. 8:30); justified (Rm. 3:24, 8:30); glorified (Rm. 8:30);
conformed to the image of the Son (Rm. 8:29) ; Saints and inculpáveis (Ef.1.4); adopted as children (Ef.1.5);
redeemed (Ef.1.7); participants of an inheritance (Ef.1.14), for the praise of his glory (Ef.1.12, 1 Father 2:9);
participants of the Holy Spirit (Ef.1.13; Gl 3.14), and created in Christ Jesus for good works (Ef.2.10).
The predestination, and the election, refers to the collective body of Christ (the true church), and covers
individuals only when included in this body, through the living faith in Jesus Christ (Ef.1.5, 7.13; At. 2 :38-
SUMMARY: Regarding the election and predestination, we can apply the analogy of a large ship traveling to
heaven. God chooses the ship (the church) to be his own ship. Christ is the Captain and pilot of that ship.
Everybody that want to be into in that ship, they may do so by living faith in Christ. While still on the ship,
accompanying her Captain, will be among the elected, if someone leaves the ship and its captain, will no
longer be one of those elected.
The predestinação concerns the fate of the ship and what God prepared for whom it remains. God invites
everyone to come on board of the elected ship by Jesus Christ.
As the texts cited in this topic called predestination, it is obvious that the predestination that the Bible presents
us with is the predestination IN JESUS CHRIST. That is, Jesus is the door, then, once in Christ, not exist
other way for we inherit the glory of God. As this position indisputable, I want, without the least fear
solemnly declare that those who have tubort different, also saying that humanity already predestined born, or
that there are two seeds, or that we don't have free will, etc. ..., etc. ... There are only children of the devil and
slaves of satanás. And before anyone says ... Ah! one can't speak like this of elected of the Lord, let me make
it clear that I am speaking of a child of the devil and not a elected of the Lord, because for me elected of the
Lord, are those who preach, live, and are willing to die by the Truth, submitting to the Scriptures, not wanting
to put itself above them.
1) Lameque demonstrates be bad. However generated Noah (which was good).
2) The flood closed the subject of seed good and bad; because everyone became the seed of Noé.
3) If the daughters-in-law of Noah were fair, as were saved, why the relatives of these women perished?
4) If you were born predestined, what the meaning of Christ dye on the cross? For what we was send to
preach the Gospel?
5) Why would a God who has no pleasure in the death of incredulous (Ez. 18 / Ez. 33), and loved the world so
(John 3.16), would created someone predestinated to hell?
Well, all this only confirms, that people who believe in the predestination are also to steps toward hell.
