THE TRUTH IS — These FIVE THINGS are clearly the only context found in Rom. 8:28-31 – Foreknew, Predestinate, Called, Justified, Glorified. Verse 31 then states “What shall we then say to THESE THINGS?” Only these five things can be included in this CONTEXT. Then there are listed following that context in Verses 35-39 many more things that are downstream and by-products of the FIRST FIVE THINGS listed above. V37 – clearly states, referring to “all these things” in this last list of = death, life, angels, principalities, powers, things present, things to come, nor height, depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. So the “ALL THINGS” listed in V.28 has its contextual restrictions.
