Just one point: predestination

Predestination is a theological concept that cannot be understood with rational mind. Glory of man is like the grass that withers away. How does predestination work for him in such a case? God ‘of his own will begat us with the word of truth(Jas.1:17)’ and it is what makes it work for us.

Salvation is the eternal word carrying man on the simple premise that faith is one. (‘One Lord, one faith’-Ep.1:5) I shall give one example: Before God destroyed Sodom two angels carried Lot and his family out of the city safely and commanded them to ‘go to the mountain lest thou be consumed’ (Ge.19:15-17). Faith has no time constraints. It is associated with heart.  Heart of man has its natural function. In addition to it the Spirit assigns heart spiritual significance. Consider this: “He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end (Ecc.3:11)”.

Gift of God is ‘the world in the heart’ of those whose faith matches His. Spiritual body of a believer is same as that of the risen Christ. The world in the heart is a kangaroo word.
