    What does Romans 8:28 means?
  • D.J. - in Reply on Mark 7:7

    Romans 8:28 basically states that the plan of God will be done through His "elect" children.

    God also utilizes Satan's children to bring about His perfect plan, look at Isaiah 10:5, 19:25, Jeremiah 42:18, etc.

    The "elect" children of God concerns "predestination," look at Romans 8:29-30, 1 Corinthians 2:7, Ephesians 1:5, 11.

    Predestination has to do with understanding that there are 3 earth and heaven ages spoken of in the word of God, 2 Peter 3:5-6 speaks of the 1st dispensation of time; 2 Peter 3:7 speaks of the 2nd dispensation of time; and 2 Peter 3:13 speaks of the 3rd dispensation of time.)

    The 1st earth and heaven age ended due to the fall of Satan, and is recorded in Genesis 1:1-2. The earth BECAME without form and void; God did not make it that way!

    The 2nd earth and heaven age came into being when the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters and God said Let there be Light (Genesis 1:2-3)

    The 3rd earth and heaven age is what all children of God look forward to.

    God "did foreknow" (Rom 8:29) each and every one of us because we were all there in the 1st Dispensation of time.

    Jeremiah was (foreordained) a prophet BEFORE he was born (Jeremiah 1:5).

    God hated Esau BEFORE he was born because Esau despised his (birth)-right and (likely) followed Satan in the 1st earth age (Genesis 25:32-34, Malachi 1:3, Romans 9:13, Hebrews 12:16)
