For many are called,
according to the foreknowledge of God the Father,
through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience
and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ:
Grace unto you, and peace, be multiflied.
1 Peter 1:2
= Those God did predestinate
= Those God did elect
= Those God did foreknow. . .etc.
This is because all that are saved, are saved throughout history, retroactively, through the sacrifice of Christ at the time of His death on the cross and while each person must make the decision to become a believer, God knows who they are. Even before they were born, God gave their eternal seed to His Son to plant into the earth and promised that none would be lost.
When the rest of mankind has ignored the call, the "chosen" have made a choice. The spiritual response this choice requires includes specific action. It is necessary to repent of our sin, turn from our own philosophy and going our own way, to committing ourselves to obey God's Word and His will.
