Was Calvin a Federal Vision guy?

"Besides this [general call to all who hear the gospel,] there is a special call which, for the most part, God bestows on believers only, when by the internal illumination of the Spirit he causes the word preached to take deep root in their hearts. Sometimes, however, he communicates it also to those whom he enlightens only for a time, and whom afterwards, in just punishment for their ingratitude, he abandons and smites with greater blindness."

(John Calvin, Institutes. III.24.8)
