Foreordination is the same as predestination which means that God ordains what will happen in history and in salvation. It means to appoint beforehand. The word, "foreordained," is used in the KJV in 1 Pet 1:20. See the following verses regarding predestination:
- Rom. 8:29, "For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the first-born among many brethren."
- Eph. 1:11, "also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will."
