Paul said that he was foreordained from his mother’s womb by God to be an apostle. Jesus Christ revealed Himself to Paul and then through Paul to the Gentiles. Even though Paul was separated out from his birth to be an apostle, in the early part of his life, he was persecuting and killing Christians and trying to destroy the church. Paul believed that he was working for God, but he was really working against the purposes of God. Jesus arrested Paul on the road to Damascus, where Paul met Jesus face to face, and his life was forever turned around (see Acts 9:4-9). Jesus called Paul at that time, but his real call and purpose were written before he was ever born. It is the same for us today, God in His foreknowledge knows everything about us, and He has a plan for each one of us. However, our mind, will and emotions, our soul part can cause us to work contrary to the plan of God in our lives. Even though God knows the future, He will never try to control or manipulate us or make us do anything. People go to hell because they reject Jesus or they are not told about Him, or they will refuse to acknowledge Him. We need to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone and tell them that they are redeemed by the blood of the Lamb (see 2 Corinthians 17-21).
