I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it. - Isa. 46:11b Sorry about the wrong text in the heading. It should read "Isa. 46:11." God does not view his eternal purposed as already accomplished although he views it as something that will be accomplished and thus certain. If he viewed it as already accomplished, fulfilled, then the idea of "predestinated" and "predestination" is pure fiction and nonsense. God views his eternal purpose as something that must come "to pass" and something He must yet "do it." Hence, there is no substantive organic eternal REALITY in regard to God's eternal purpose. Nothing in God's purpose has SUBSTANTIVE REALITY but only CONTEMPLATIVE reality. There is no actual substantive reality of spiritual union between the actual nature and being of God with the elect. There is only CONTEMPLATIVE reailty by divine PURPOSE but not by divine FULFILLMENT or accomplishment. Actual spiritual union between God and his elect is something that God must CREATE in time and space (Eph. 2:10) and is called being "quickened" or the reversal of being "alienated from life of God" (Eph. 4:18) so that the elect are brought into actual spiritual union with God by a creative act of the Holy Spirit called "born again" or "quickened" or "regeneration." If God saw his own eternal purpose as already accomplished he could never utter the words found in Isaiah 46:11. He could never refer to his purpose as something that must needs "come to pass" or something yet future "will do it."
