“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” ~Revelation 1:8
God has always known what would happen, even before anything else existed. Before the heavens and the earth, before time itself, God was there. He has existed forever. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end.
“Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure.” ~Isaiah 46:10
The knowledge that God knows everything that will happen as well as when it will happen, makes it all that much easier for us to surrender. Accepting that He is in control is what gives us peace.
“And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” ~Revelation 13:8
This verse points to the fact that He had the plan of salvation figured out before He created man. He has had our eternity in place right from the beginning—from the foundation of the world, He knew we would need a Savior. He has it all under control, even the sacrifice of Jesus “the Lamb slain” to purchase our eternal life. He's had it all in place even before He created the world!
Satan’s intervention with humanly was no surprise to God. We need to understand that God doesn’t have the restriction of time. He moves forward and backward through the realm of time, and therefore He can see the future before it happens. God is never, ever surprised!
So, the answer posed in the title of this post, is most definitely, yes. God knows everything! And with this insight, who better to trust with not only the affairs of this life, but with your entire eternity!
The blog site, Answers in Genesis posted the following…
“We want the world to know that the Bible is not just a book of religion, or morality, or just a book of spiritual things—although it is all those things. We want people to understand that the Bible is a book of history.
You see, the first book of the Bible relates to us the account of the biological, geological, astronomical, and anthropological history of the universe—and this history is confirmed by observational science in genetics, biology, geology, and astronomy. Because this history as revealed in the Bible is true, then the message of the Christian gospel (concerning salvation from our sin of rebellion in the first man Adam) is true—that the Son of God stepped into history to become one of us and to die (but as a sinless man) on a cross (because death was the penalty for our sin), was raised from the dead (conquering death), and now offers a free gift of salvation (to live with God for eternity in a New Heavens and earth—with no death) to those who will receive it.”
This is such a powerful statement, and it is 100% biblically accurate as well. I felt the need to include this quote because I just couldn’t think of any better way to explain the point of today’s post. After all, the object of The Truth Mission blog site is to share the absolute truth of the Bible and to share the salvation of Jesus Christ with as many as will hear, and to encourage others to do the same.
We must come to the point of acceptance regarding the entire matter. God is real. God was not created and has always existed. He pleads with every single one of us to accept this offer to spend eternity with Him! He has procured such an easy way for everyone to accept this invitation and live forever. So, why would anyone say no?
There is only one reason, and his name is Satan. He’s been trying to keep us from connecting with Jesus since the first day of creation. Satan had been exiled from heaven and was watching every move Jesus made. He was jealous of Christ’s divine ability to create. He chose to do everything in his power to corrupt all of creation, to separate us from God in any way possible, and his primary weapon was sin.
If we can simply accept that sin is what separates us from God, we can then grab hold of God’s perfect all knowing plan of redemption. By acknowledging the fact that we are all sinners, are all in need of His plan of salvation, we acknowledge that we are all in need of Jesus.
God knew before humans were created that we would need this rescue plan. He knew we would all betray Him and succumb to sin, and He still created us anyway. Wow...what a God!

Q: Are you willing to accept that God knows best?
