Romans 8:29 – What It Means That God Foreknew The Elect – In Romans 8:29-30 Paul describes the process of salvation, which is often referred to as the golden chain. The first link of this chain is that God foreknew those whom he predestined, called, justified and glorifies. But what does it mean for God to foreknow someone? Many have come to understand it means God looked down through time and saw all those whom would choose to come to His son by their own free will and He therefore predestined, called, justified and glorifies them. Listen as it is explained in detail what the term foreknew actually means.
