Did God plan who would be saved?

Yes: 4No: 2

Do you believe God planned (predestined) those that would be saved before the foundation of the world and brings about salvation in time or will God be “surprised” of how many and who is saved because He only setup a way of salvation? Or do you believe a variation of the last option that God know who will be saved because being eternal He is able to look into the “corridor of time” and see in the future who will be saved? A person’s belief on this topic says a lot about their view of God’s sovereignty and understanding of the concept of grace.
