    God is unknowable kids. He is only knowable in what he chooses to reveal about himself.

        @OP, yes

        (Job 36:5) For truly my words are not false: He that is perfect in knowledge is with you.
        Christ is the Gospel; Christ is our righteousness; Christ is our hope!!! No Jesus; no righteousness. No Jesus; no hope!

          Knowledge is not foreknowledge.

            Foreknowledge is a subset of knowledge. Foreknowledge depends on the the contingent perspective of time. God is not bound by time. He is in all places in time, in every point in time, all at the same time. He knows all that is past, present, and future. There is no need for a descriptor for the perfect (exhaustively complete) knowledge that God possesses. The descriptor (fore) is only used that we, as contingent beings who are bound by time, may understand that specific subset of His knowledge.

              And the Scripture that supports this argument?

                This is based off of the attributes that God is known to have, and has to have, to be eternal. Those attributes are as follows: omniscience, omnipotence, omnipresence, and immutibility. I am at work right now and do not have access to a bible for the exact references, but a quick google search on the attributes of God will give you plenty of scripture in support of my position. And furthermore, in order for Him to be our Creator (for us to exist) He must be all those things.

                    My response to you was one of the posts lost in the reset and I didn't remember it when I came back.

                    So I will respond now: Google provided no Scriptures. Do you have any?

                      Unless you are an open theist.

                        The Word/Jesus Who also created all things Has foreknowledge through the Father/Spirit.

                        The physical manifestation/image/representation of the Father/Spirit Has access to foreknowledge but has limited His Foreknowledge to interact in a loving Hopeful way towards man.

                        man has interacted with the Word all the way back to genesis.

                        In order to validate the scripture that says
                        2 peter 3:9 as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.

                          Omniscient: (Job 37:16); (Psalm 147:5); (1 John 3:20); (Romans 11:33)

                          Omnipotent: (Job 42:2); (Daniel 4:35); (Isaiah 14:27); (Isaiah 43:13); (Matthew 19:26); (Jeremiah 32:27)

                          Omnipresence: (Jeremiah 23:23, 24); (Psalm 139:7-12); (Proverbs 15:3); (Colossians 1:17); (Ephesians 4:6)

                          Immutability: (Malachi 3:6); (Psalms 102:25-27); (Isaiah 43:10); (James 1:17)

                          Here are but a few verses about His attributes.

                            None of those show the future being a knowable quantity.

                            Omnipotent: (Job 42:2); (Daniel 4:35); (Isaiah 14:27); (Isaiah 43:13); (Matthew 19:26); (Jeremiah 32:27)
                            God can do anything He wants within His attributes and character. He cannot do that which He has not made possible to do.

                            Omnipresence: (Jeremiah 23:23, 24); (Psalm 139:7-12); (Proverbs 15:3); (Colossians 1:17); (Ephesians 4:6)
                            Is God capable of not being somewhere He doesn't want to be?

                            Immutability: (Malachi 3:6); (Psalms 102:25-27); (Isaiah 43:10); (James 1:17)
                            His character does not change. This does not mean He is impassable, or that He didn't become flesh at one point.

                            Here are but a few verses about His attributes.
                            Is He personal? Loving? Living? Good? Relational?
