From the Webster's Dictionary:
>>>Prognosis<<< (The Greek word itself will provide more in detail)
PROGNO'SIS, n. [Gr. to know before.] In medicine, the art of foretelling the event of a disease;
the judgment of the event of a disease by particular symptoms.
Scripture concerning foreknowledge:
(Act_2:21-36) + (Mat_13:23, Act_3:24)
The Elect do not become who they are by just a flashing thought in a moment. Having foreknowledge
is understanding the outcome, the end result.
They know who GOD the FATHER is. They listened to HIM. If HE is the Living Word, then the
Words HE spoke is Alive. How do they receive this foreknowledge?
Verse 2, brought to us by Peter (Cephas) a rock into which CHRIST YAHSHUAH chose as an
ensample to us. What has Peter taught us in his walk with Our FATHER? The second verse tells us
what Peter has learned. He made mistakes along the way.
Why? Because he didn't quite grasp everything YAHSHUAH was teaching him.
Something to pay close attention to is the moment Peter met with YAHSHUAH.
What did HE say to him? Have a look into this, there may be some things you
pick up in regards to Rev_3:7-13. Keywords; Peter, Cephas, blood, key (+s)
