The Father Predetermined, Chose, or Predestined Us to be in Christ Predestination is the word used in most translations in Ephesians 1:5 and later again in verse 11. The word in the Greek is proorizo which means to limit in advance, predetermine: determine beforehand, ordain, and predestinate. After careful review of this passage many times, the word predetermine best captured what Paul was discussing in context. Proorizo comes from two Greek words pro which means fore or before, and horazo which
means to predetermine or to discern clearly. One thing about it, God certainly discerns and clearly determines all things. Paul's primary focus within this passage is the outworking of the eternal plan of God focused on the Father and the Son. Certainly, we are also a part of that eternal Christ that is being discussed. The word predetermine means to set boundaries beforehand, and foreordain them. The predetermined and foreordained boundary being discussed, or the predestination has all been once then chosen by the Father to be "in Christ" before the laying down of the foundation of the world (Eph 1:4).
