God’s choosing of certain people and not others is, according to calvinism, part of his mysterious will; The elect also cannot resist placing faith in christ and cannot ever turn away from their faith once they accept jesus.
The doctrine that god predestines humans denies a fundamental teaching of the bible.
How does god choose who goes to heaven. Calvinist universalists can just say that god elects everyone. However, we must remember that this was a vision given to the apostle john concerning christ’s judgment of the earth. God promises everlasting life on earth for most good people.
I find it interesting that no one actually answered this question. While jesus is the main “seed” of promise, god chooses others from among humankind to rule with jesus in the kingdom. God does not look into the future to make this decision, and he elects some and not others.
This may be because he does not believe hell exists, or it may be because he convinces himself that it would be tolerably preferable to heaven. Does god know who are to go to heaven (those with his seal)? All good people go to heaven.

Scripture makes it clear that god chooses us for salvation. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of god, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh. But, he also gives us the free will to choose to be saved or lost.
God does what he does for his glory. It’s not a question of whether it’s going to happen — it did happen. All are called, but only the elect are drawn to god.
The person who rejects god does not know the real horrors of hell. To verify this some people, of course, will point out that in exodus (20.5) it is written that god says he is a jealous god. And paul is restating what he has already said.
And scripture makes it clear that we choose god. Why didn't god choose everyone to be saved? He does not get in the way of our decisions and predestines our lives.
They say that it is a mystery to him whether you and i will be in heaven with him, or in hell with satan. Arminian universalists can say that everyone will choose christ, even after death. The short answer is, no, god did not choose us because of anything inherent in ourselves.
So, those who go to hell are specifically those who do not believe in jesus’ name. He is drawing out the application — namely, with regard to pharaoh. Because he got more glory for his own name by doing it the way he did it.
He chose us out of his love and mercy, and for his glory. What ultimately determines whether a person is saved, god’s sovereign choice of them,… John 3:18 explains in the simplest terms who will go to heaven and who will go to hell:
God does predestine each person that has ever been born, to go to heaven. You’re asking a question that thoughtful people of faith have wrestled with throughout the centuries: Considering that the horses in question carried.
12 so those who go to heaven go there to serve as joint rulers with christ in god’s heavenly government. He only chooses those few that go to heaven. But, i'll give you a basic answer, ok?
It’s not either/or, it’s both. The bible never directly addresses the question of whether animals go to heaven when they die, although it does specifically mention at least one type of animal in heaven: Nobody can merit or earn being chosen by god.
12 so those who go to heaven go there to serve as joint rulers with christ in god’s heavenly government. Everyone else goes to “hell” when they die as the word “hell” is just another word for the grave. 13) he thus showed that good people who died before him, such as abraham, moses, job, and david, did not go to heaven.(acts 2:
“no man has ascended into heaven.” (john 3: But a person exhibits jealousy or anger when he is afraid of losing something, feels insecure, is competing with another, or does not get what he wants. “whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of god’s one and only son.”.
While jesus is the main “seed” of promise, god chooses others from among humankind to rule with jesus in the kingdom. Ephesians 1 goes on to say, “in love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through jesus christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will—to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has. Yet there are many that say god does not know whether you and i are going to heaven or hell.
