God’s Foreknown Knowledge

Jesus

This study is about, “God’s foreknown knowledge, His predestined plans, and the creation of mankind both male and female {you/us} in His spiritual image and physical likeness and I ask you to insert yourself into the place of King David as he speaks to God so that you make the following assertions for yourself, “Your eyes saw my unformed substance {put your name________}, and in Your book all the days [of my life] were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them” and watch and learn what happens as we trace your name and life from BEFORE creation, time, and history began through TODAY.

 

Let’s find out how much information is contained in the above Scripture about you/us from Psalms 139:16. It tells us that God the Father visualized YOU for the implementing of His plans from before creation and time began – from BEFORE Genesis Chapter 1! Please think about this! If you were an unformed substance, the Father conceptualized or formed a mental picture of you, and then He wrote ALL of His foreknown plans in His Book of Life about you all done in this era of eternity some 13-14+ billions of years ago!!! This amount of billions of years ago just boggles my mind – I cannot even think about what I need to do tomorrow and necessarily get it done! But yet God the Holy Spirit using the Father’s Book of Life manages to have every day done while preparing for tomorrow all according to the Father’s Book! We do NOT realize how great is God’s Sovereignty and Providence is over His creation.
God’s foreknown plans about you included a number of things – your name, your genealogy which is very important to you to join your concept to your creation and then down through time and history, to the number of days in your life, even to the number of hairs on your head.
Exodus 33:12 Moses said to the Lord, See, You say to me, Bring up this people, but You have not let me know whom You will send with me. Yet You said, I know you by name and you have also found favor in My sight.  AMP
Exodus 33:17 And the Lord said to Moses, I will do this thing also that you have asked, for you have found favor, loving-kindness, and mercy in My sight and I know you personally and by name.  [Rev 2:17.]  AMP
Isaiah 43:1 BUT NOW [in spite of past judgments for Israel’s sins], thus says the Lord, He Who created you, O Jacob, and He Who formed you, O Israel: Fear not, for I have redeemed you [ransomed you by paying a price instead of leaving you captives]; I have called you by your name; you are Mine. AMP
Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you as a prophet to the nations {When did God make these plans for you? God is saying, “I foreknew you personally along time ago!”}.  [Ex 33:12; Isa 49:1, 5; Rom 8:29.] AMP
Romans 8:29-30 For those whom He foreknew [of whom He was aware and loved beforehand {from BEFORE creation}], He also {pre/}destined from the beginning [foreordaining them] to be molded into the {physical and spiritual} image of His Son [and share inwardly His likeness], that He might become the firstborn among many brethren. 30 And those whom He thus foreordained, He also called {How did He call us?}; and those whom He called, He also justified (acquitted, made righteous, putting them into right standing with Himself). And those whom He justified, He also glorified [raising them to a heavenly dignity and condition or state of being]. AMP
Isaiah 41:4 Who has prepared and done this, calling forth and guiding the destinies of the generations [of the {peoples of the} nations] from the beginning? I, the Lord — the first [existing before history began] and with the last [an ever-present, unchanging God] — I am He. AMP
Job 14:5 Since a man’s days are already determined, and the number of his months is wholly in Your control, and he cannot pass the bounds of his allotted time — AMP
Matthew 10:30 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. AMP
The Bible shares with us some interesting information about God. I believe modern intellectual man has become ignorant about God – he/she knows so very much about the world and the things of the world, but they really do not know much if anything about God! Their dilemma is opposite to what God’s Word commands –
1 John 2:15-17 {You True Believer Christians} Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father {or some translations have “the love of the Father”} is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world — the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the lust of the eyes [greedy longings of the mind] and the pride of life [assurance in one’s own resources or in the stability of earthly things] — these do not come from the Father but are from the world [itself]. 17 And the world passes away and disappears, and with it the forbidden cravings (the passionate desires, the lust) of it; but he who does the will of God and carries out His purposes in his life abides (remains) forever. AMP
 
From the very beginning of man, God the Son/Son of Man created him/her physically male and female with a spiritual nature.
Genesis 1:27 So God {the Son/Son of Man} created man in His own image, in the {spiritual} image and {physical} likeness of God {the Son/Son of Man} He created him; male and female He created them.  [Col 3:9, 10; James 3:8, 9.] AMP
As God the Son created man, He commanded them to be fruitful and reproduce their kind.
Genesis 1:28a And God blessed them and said to them, Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it [using all its vast resources in the service of God and man];…… AMP
Remember that God has foreknown and predestined plans for every person written in His Book of Life. Please think about this! That being the case, God the Holy Spirit using the Father’s plans from His Book of Life had to be spiritually present to orchestrate at the sexual union of the parents the conception of every naturally conceived offspring/person. Eve even knew this! How come we do NOT know this TODAY?!!!
Genesis 4:1 AND ADAM knew Eve as his wife, and she became pregnant and bore Cain; and she said, I have gotten and gained a man with the help of the Lord. AMP
Genesis 4:25 And Adam’s wife again became pregnant, and she bore a son and called his name Seth. For God, she said, has appointed for me another child instead of Abel, for Cain slew him. AMP

You are here at this time in history because God the Holy Spirit was spiritually present at your parent’s sexual union to put together your mother’s right egg with the right sperm from the billions that were deposited into your mother by your father to produce you. Isaiah 41 told us that God calls forth the peoples of the generations from the beginning of Adam and Eve so I ask you to think about the impeccably accurate work to achieve this by God the Holy Spirit in the centuries since man was created.

The Bible also shares with us that God creates each person at their conception with three distinct parts – a physical body containing our bones/frame, organs, and skin which allows us to function/be mobile/to be physically alive, a soul which I believe contains one’s mind/spiritual heart and their personality, and a spirit that can connect all naturally conceived humans to the spiritual realm and to God and contains ALL of each person’s history, and then it returns to Him at one’s death to be used by God as a reference for their/our judgment:
1 Thessalonians 5:23 And may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through [separate you from profane things, make you pure and wholly consecrated to God]; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved sound and complete [and found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah). AMP
Ecclesiastes 12:7 {When a person dies} Then shall the dust [out of which God made man’s {physical soul and} body] return to the earth as it was, and the spirit shall return to God Who gave it. AMP
 I do not know how long God contemplated, organized, and agonized over His creation in the era before creation, time, and history began, but we MUST understand how “perfect and complete” the total creation was in God’s sight:
Genesis 1:31 And God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good (suitable, pleasant) and He approved it completely. And there was evening and there was morning, a sixth day. AMP
It is guesstimated by human reproduction scientists that over 108+ billion people have been born from man’s creation and that does NOT include all of the humans that were not conceived nor born because of blocked conception and abortion. It is absolutely necessary that you understand the seriousness of God’s involvement in your life from BEFORE creation and time through the present and on into the future. God is NOT a joke nor a fluke!!! He is real!!! alive, loving, and well!!! And has conditions on your part to be involved in your/our lives!
Hebrews 13:5 Let your character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]  [Josh 1:5.] AMP

In closing this study, we have traced man’s concept by God from BEFORE creation and time began all the way through the ages to you being present here TODAY. Our next study will be on man’s entrance into the world, but we must look at sin and its consequences to the angels, to man, and to creation to see the big picture.
AMEN and AMEN!
