BB Warfield created a helpful chart that outlines the order of God’s decrees (aka order of redemption). Views of the nature and order of the degrees vary significantly by denomination. If you’ve ever heard infralapsarian or supralapsarian referenced, they are different positions on this topic. A relatively brief explanation of each can be found at Theopedia.
If you’d like to study the topic in more detail, see Warfield’s Plan of Salvation.
