Eph 1:5 5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, Predestinated us unto the Adoption of Children ! Many of the Lord's adversaries of the Gospel of Truth will tell us that there are no scriptures that tell us that people have been predestinated to Faith in Christ ! Well that is absolutely false, for Eph 1:5 informs us of that exact thing, by stating " Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself" He predetermined or preordained before hand an Adoption in Time by Jesus Christ ! According to the good pleasure of His Will ! Also to the praise of the glory of His Grace, which He graced us in in the Beloved; All that means, we who have believed, believe because of predestinating Grace Acts 18:27 27 And when he was disposed to pass into Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him: who, when he was come, helped them much which had believed through grace: Remember, as many as were ordained to Eternal Life believed Acts 13:48 ! That believing is the result of God having predestnated us to the Adoption of Children, that is that our Election and Sonship become known publically by our public Faith in Christ Gal 3:26 26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. Paul uses the exact same greek word for children here as he did in Eph 1:5, its the word huios and means Son ! The Faith in Christ we have , we [The Sons] were predestinated unto it ! Another scripture that speaks to some being predestinated unto Faith in Christ is Rom 8:29 29 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. Those God foreknew as also here Rom 11:2 2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel saying, Those he predestinated to Faith in Christ simply because He predestinated them to be conformed to His Image, which image is to Trust in God Heb 2:13 13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me. Thats the fruit of being adopted unto Children by Jesus Christ ! The being conformed to the Image of Christ for the foreknown and predestinated, that process begins at a certain time for each foreknown and predestinated one, which begins at their New Birth, New Birth is of Necessity for the Eternal Purpose to begin their experimental conformity to Christ, and with the New Birth comes the Birth of Faith and Hope 1 Pet 1:3 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope [Faith] by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, Predestinated to Faith in Christ is taught in scripture for those who have eyes to see it !
