"The burden of Egypt. Behold, the Lord rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it. And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom." (Isaiah 19:1-2)
THE OMNISCIENCE OF ALMIGHTY GOD
I have chosen to lead in to this article with the foregoing prophetic scripture to illustrate that the sovereign God knows the future of the world, that of the various nations, and in fact the particulars of the future of this, one-time Christian and now controlling totalitarian, American commonwealth.
Our God is not ordinary, nor is He limited in knowing as is His adversary and enemy, Satan.
My dictionary tells me that to be omniscient is to be infinitely wise and all-knowing.
How did Jesus know that there would be a fish in the waters of a lake and that in the mouth of that fish would be a coin of sufficient value to cover the assessed taxes of his disciples and of himself?
How is it that He knew precisely where the Peter should cast the net to make the biggest haul of fish?
How is it that He knew that before the cock crowed Peter would have thrice denied knowing Him?
How is it that He knew that in regard to the temple that not one stone would be left resting upon another? We now know that the mortars joints contained gold, and that the Romans threw down the stones from atop one another to recover that gold, God knew this before it happened...how?
Being the Creator, God also knows everything else: everything possible, everything actual. He knows all events and all creatures, of the past, present, and the future. He is absolutely acquainted with every detail in the life of every being in heaven, on earth, in the sea and in hell.
God knows every present action. "The Lord looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men. From the place of His dwelling He looks on all the inhabitants of the earth; He fashions their hearts individually; He considers all their works." Despite the uniqueness of each person, God understands everyone on an individual basis and knows everyone personally
God knows every future action. The fact that God gave prophets the ability to predict accurately very specific events in the distant future is one of the great evidences for the inspiration of the Bible.
I have not the slightest doubt that God knows the future like a roadmap, else how could He have given Revelation unto John and end-time knowledge unto Daniel?
These are my thoughts on His omniscience, and all-knowing nature...He knows the past present and future, and that future appears at this moment to be immensely bleak.
WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN?
Since God does know the future He must let a sequence of events play out that, however drastic these events may seem to be, there be no disruption of the outcomes that he has in fact planned and that must take place to bring to fruition his divine intentions.
God has allowed, egregiously filthy sodomy, the on-going slaughter of innocent babies, and various and sundry filthy vices such as pornography, drug abuse, murder and rape. Indeed such foulness does proliferate in our nation today. Satan, in order to create an illusion of legitimacy of such foulness, has programmed the people to accept such perversions as normal. The devil must be given his due…he has succeeded marvelously with his programming of the people. And as his allies he has recruited some pretty important assistance…the president of the United States and nearly the entirety of the nations' judiciary plus a sizeable number of law-making politicians, the seeming majority of which are enablers of Satan's agenda for a world-wide demonic kingdom. The present political leaders of this country and the bureaucrats who serve them demonstrate by their condemnable and unholy tacticses that they are indeed disciples' of the devil.
One might well question why all of the foregoing delineated violations of God's own laws as promulgated by His word via the Holy Bible are tolerated by an unlimited deity who could surely exact a penalty and punish the violators and bring them to justice.
Surely a God of limitless power and authority would not ignore such strictures and the precipitous slide into infidelity, separation from integrity, and a departure from moral absolutes. It must be that He has a purpose in regard to allowing such spiritual law-breaking to continue seemingly unabated.
Given the sorrow and misery in regard to the explosion of natural disasters, the inimical social consequences of continuing debauchery, and the slide from power and stature of the United States one most certainly cannot say that God has turned a blind eye to such effrontery and disobediences.
In the wake of previous articles in which I stressed my faith and firm commitment to the living God I received some exceedingly foul and nasty messages from a number of atheistic and ostensible infernal and unholy human denizens of the Satanic kingdom. The letters consisted mostly of profanity and the calling of filthy names. The writers were of a seeming unintelligent breed with little in the way of astuteness and even less in the way of manners and moral soundness. They seemed bent upon proving up Darwin's contention that they did indeed descend from a primate species and developed little in the way of mental acuity along the way. One must be entirely sorrowful for these wretched souls and desire that they climb out of the demonic pit and resurrect their pitiful lives.

Sometime in the very near future these people will find that they are subject to the very same God that I am subject to. Though it will be impossible, I would truly like to be present when they stand before His brilliant countenance. What a huge surprise they will experience!
All such will cry, bawl, and beg when the following prophesies come to pass.
Just now I have little in the way of pity for such blasphemers of the Holy God.
And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. (Matthew 24:6-7)
Nothing is bigger, more righteous, or more perfect that our living GOD!
