God is the inventor of human life, just as He is the creator.

God is the inventor of human life, just as He is the creator.

2CO 8:9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.

JOH 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.”

Then we are assured of God’s love by the third member of the Trinity, God the Holy Spirit and His love for us.

God provided a way to bring His Voice into each of His children as they went out into the world so that they could always remember the Truth of Who and What they are.

The Holy Spirit’s function and purpose is to bring God’s Voice to each of God’s children, guiding them, directing them, loving them, and restoring their thinking to God’s.

1. The Doctrine of the Book of Life.
2. The Doctrine of the Unlimited Atonement.

One thing in time and something different in eternity. First of all, in eternity past the book of life is a registry containing the names of every member of the human race who would ever be born.

The Doctrine of Selection.

Since God knew in eternity past that you were going to be a member of the human race, and He knew simultaneously in His omniscience that you would believe in Jesus Christ, God selected you before He elected you.

Selection must precede and introduces election.
Selection is a technical term related to the divine imputation of human life at the point of physical birth.

God is the inventor of human life, just as He is the creator.

At the moment of physical birth, God imputes human life to the format soul, at which point the individual becomes alive.

Therefore, life has meaning, purpose, and definition for everyone, regardless of environment or circumstances, historical prosperity or historical adversity.

When we are selected we are spiritually dead.
Our personal sins were never imputed to us for judgment.

Principle: Selection precedes election.

When a person is born he receives the imputation of human life from God, when he might have been a squirrel, a pig, a cat, or any other type of lower creation, or forever non-existent, which means – God selected you as category homo sapien, or human being, a rational creature, when He imputed life to you.

It means God has a purpose for every member of the human race with no exceptions, for both believers and unbelievers. When God selects, He does so from His perfect decision-making process, His sovereignty.

Selection occurs when the sovereignty of God imputes human life to the soul at birth. Election becomes a reality when any person believes in Christ for salvation.

JOB 33:4 “And the breath from God has created me [a human being], and the breath [soul life] of the Almighty gives me [human] life.”

Hebrew – “ruach El”
Ruach = Greek pneuma = breath, spirit, life, and lifestyle.

This statement by Job is after the fall of man in the Garden and states the principle of the origin of human life, which is from God.

Job does not say that the copulation of a male and female gave him life.

ISA 44:2 “Thus says the Lord who created you, who formed you outside [separated from] the womb, who will help you, ‘Do not fear, O Jacob My servant; And you Jeshurun whom I have chosen.’”

Hebrew prepositional phrase – “mi beten” = “out from the womb.”

God formed you or gave you life “out from the womb,” “separated from the womb,” “outside the womb,” “away from the womb.”

ECC 12:7 “Then the dust [biological life] will return to the earth as it was, and the breath [ruach, soul life] will return to God who gave it.”
