Ephesians 1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated (see Eph. 1:5 ďadoptionĒ uioqesia to placed as a son) according to the purpose of him (the Father) who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
Luke 18:16-17 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. 17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

NONE OF THEM PERISHED BUT JUDAS
John 17:12 While I was with them in the world (Israel), I kept them in thy name (Father): those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost [perished, aorist middle], but the son of perdition [destruction (Judas)]; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
WHOM THOU HAST GIVEN ME

38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given [perfect active] me I should lose [perish] nothing, but should raise [stand again] it up again [stand again] at the last day.

WHEN FOREKNOWLEDGE WAS USED
