A question about Predestination

Hello, brothers!

I was reading about predestination, etc., and, now, I have a question:

Can be non-predestined in Heaven?

God bless you!

I assume you mean that someone can be predestined to go to Hell by God? No, we all have free will. At the same time God’s plans always come to fruition. For example, Judas betrayed Jesus, but God did not force Judas to do that. He willingly chose to betray Jesus. If Judas had not betrayed Jesus, someone else would eventually. Maybe Jesus would live a few more years, but it would happen eventually. God’s plans mysteriously ensure his will always happens. We will never know how this works (at least in our earthly life), but somehow God’s plans do not interfere with our free will.

we are predestined,

Acts 4:28, “to do whatever Your hand and Your purpose predestined to occur.”
Romans 8:29-30, “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the first-born among many brethren; 30 and whom He predestined, these He also called; and whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.”
1 Corinthians 2:7, “but we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom, which God predestined before the ages to our glory.”
Ephesians 1:5, “He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will.”
Ephesians 1:11, “also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will.”

What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory, Romans 9:22-23

Romans 9:22 says god is longsuffering to those who are “fitted to destruction” in other words he lets them have a life on earth until he decides to destroy them in hell for his purpose
