When the word "predestination" is used in the Bible it speaks of the destiny of those who are already saved. In other words, when the word is used it is not saying that some people are predestined to be saved and others are not. For instance, Romans 8:29 is says that it is determined beforehand that those who are already saved will be "conformed to the image of the Son": "For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren" (Ro.8:29). It was determined beforehand that those of this dispensation who are already saved will be "conformed to the image of His Son" when they meet Him in the air and puts on a glorious body just like His glorious body: "But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body" (Phil.3:20-21; NIV). In every verse which speaks of "predestination" and the destiny of man is in view the reference is always to the fact that those who are already saved will be conformed to the image of the Lord Jesus.
