Thanksgiving 4.11 | KJV
For the eternal purposes and counsels of God concerning man’s redemption.
I am bound to give thanks always to thee, O God, because thou hast from the beginning chosen some to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit: 2 Thessalonians 2:13 (KJV) That there is a remnant according to the election of grace, Romans 11:5(KJV) whom God hath chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world, that they should be holy and without blame before thee in love, having predestinated them to the adoption of children by Jesus Christ unto thyself, according to the good pleasure of thy will, to the praise of the glory of thy grace. Ephesians 1:4-6(KJV)
Thine they were, and thou gavest them to Christ; John 17:6(KJV) and this is thy will, that of all that thou hast given him, he should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. John 6:39(KJV)
