This knowledge extends naturally to His creation, as does His love. A few biblical verses supporting this notion include the following; Jeremiah For I know the plans I have for you, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Philippians For it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for His good.   Jesus is indeed the Word of God made flesh (John ). Jesus revealed God through His words and works. He even said that no one comes to the Father but by Him (John ). If you want to know who God is, look at Jesus. So, we must start with faith. The first step in knowing God better is to know Jesus Christ, who was sent from God (John ).

He who says, ‘I know Him,’ and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him” (1 John ). John clearly said that we can come to know God by keeping His commandments. How does obeying God’s commandments enable us to come to know God?   Does God know the future? Or is the future unknowable even to God? Arguing that God interacts with his creatures spontaneously, the controversial new movement known as open theism has called classic church theology up for reexamination/5.

Does God Know Everything? – Question 27 In the Book of Jonah, we have a situation where God was going to destroy the people of Nineveh. However, the people repented of their sins and God had mercy on them. The Bible says the following about God’s response to these people. “By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the.

Millard J. Erickson's book, "What Does God Know And When Does He Know It?" presents the issues of this debate in a reasonably fair and comprehensive manner. Erickson presents the arguments for the Traditional View of God's foreknowledge and he presents the Open View of God.

He offers a biblical basis for each position.4/4(8). I know that Heller has a tendency to ramble, but he's usually funny and develops fascinating characters.

To some degree, he does that in God Knows. However, the book eventually bored me/wore me out. I liked the approach, but this book is just too long. I'm not against long books, but Heller stretches this story about 30% longer than it Does God know? book to be/5(49). (Revelation ) The faithful man Abel was apparently the first one whose name was recorded in the book of life.

(Hebrews ) It is not just a cold list of names, though, for the book of life shows us that Jehovah is a loving God who “knows those who belong to him.” —2 Timothy ; 1 John Open theism is the teaching that God does not exhaustively know the future. Its basic premise is that God cannot know the future because the future does not exist and God cannot know what does not exist.

But as we can see from the above scriptures, God knows what might have happened if situations had been different. He does not have to learn anything and He has not forgotten anything. God does not have to reason things out, find out things, or learn them gradually.

He knows everything that has happened and everything that will happen. God also knows every potential thing that might happen. God even knows those things that humankind has yet to discover. In fact, Ephesians says God “works all things according to the counsel of his will.” There is no such thing as chance with God.

Therefore, all things are moving according to plan and, since God knows all the future, he can take all things into account when he plans in the beginning.

The Bible talks about a "book" in Psalm that could be a reference to God's knowledge: "All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." God knows absolutely everything about us (Psalm ).

There is no secret action or thought that escapes His notice. “I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works” (Revelation ).

Answer: The Bible tells us that “all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be” (Psalm ).

So, yes, God knows exactly when, where, and how we will die. God knows absolutely everything about us (Psalm ). So does. As evidence they point out silly little things like in Genesis where God had to look for Adam in the Garden of Eden, or later on in the book of Genesis [Gen.

] they point out that God had to go down to Sodom and Gomorrah to find out how bad their sin actually was [Gen. Paul wrote, "I know whom I have believed" (2 Timothy ).

Our faith is in who God is and in what we know about his character. We also know that "In all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose" (Romans ).

Yes, God Knows the Future “I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all my purpose’” (Isaiah –10).“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah ).

Does God know when every person is going to die, or is it all left up to chance. If He does know, does that mean it can't be changed, even with the best medical help.

I've always been curious about this. A: When we will die is not a matter of accident or chance; the Bible makes it clear that our lives are in God’s hands. He knows the time of. The Arminian objects to the Calvinist God because God’s predetermination of all things does not allow for libertarian free will.

But by my reckoning the Arminian scheme does not allow for libertarian free will either. For if God certainly knows the future, then the future must for certainty come to pass as God knows it. The proper interpretation of Psalm is that God knows each individual all the way from the pre-embryonic stage through death.

Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them (Psalm ).

Interpreting Psalm Does God know our every step. The Holy Spirit answers that question with this verse. For the ways of a man are before the eyes of the LORD, And He watches all his paths. (NASB) Proverbs God knows everything we do. He knows our thoughts, our plans, our goals, our sins and our joys.

O LORD, Thou hast searched me and known me. In prayer to God, David said: “Your eyes even saw me as an embryo; all its parts were written in your book Search through me, O God, and know my heart.” (Psalm23) Yes, David was convinced that even though he sinned —gravely at.

God Knows. The reality expressed in the words “God knows” is a well of profound comfort and peace for us in our afflictions. Yes, there remain unanswered questions. No, they do not themselves remove our pain. But in Exodus and Genesis –14 we see why these words are pregnant with hope.

Your affliction has a purpose. Bible verses about God Knows Us. And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. 1 John ESV / 2 helpful votes Helpful Not Helpful. Likewise, for God to know what a person will choose does not mean that the person has no freedom to make the choice.

It simply means that God knows what the person will choose. This is necessarily so since God knows all things (1 John ).

Moreover, You have said, ‘I have known you by name, and you have also found favor in My sight.’.God Knows is a tragicomedic novel written by Joseph Heller and published in Plot. It is narrated by the Biblical King David of Israel, and purports to be his deathbed memoirs; however, this David does not recount his life in a straightforward fashion, and the storyline is often hilariouslyit is possible to read the book as Heller's meditation upon his own mortality.
