    God sanctified and ordained a Prophet who's name was Jeremiah. God knew us all just as He knew Jacob and Esau and Jacob He love and Esau He hated. The only way you can love or hate someone is if you walked with them and kick the dust up to see what their made of when it comes to Freewill. Isaiah 45 vs 18 millions of years ago God created earth and all the children of God rejoiced. Job 38 vs 7.

    My God knew me before I was even thought about to my parents : I Thank God for the parents He gave me. Although rough times in growing up from time to time . I Praise God for who I am and what I am : There was a time I was way out of order : but God through His tender mercies brought me out of that miry pit . I am now His child and He is sanctifying me and has ordained me as one of His own.
