This passage shows how the Lord wished him to follow him, how he loved him, he even told him what to do. But, he (the man) chose things of the earth. If this choice was not available at that moment then why did the supposed, future telling God, say anything to him, as he already knew. The Bible, says the man, was grieved because of his possessions. Jesus knew he would be troubled over this, so he loves him to give him strength.
Now to finish, God knows all, God knows the future mean what he will command, and even the end results of his creations, he know the state of man, his limits, his directions, he knows man cannot do good with out Him. The only thing he does not always know is our choices, though he knows most of them, so we are talking about a very fine point you and I. For it is a foul thing to say, He does not know the future, in terms of man desires, and the condition of man. Therefore, when it is said the future is not created, meaning only, mans choices. For it would be true that God in his wisdom has a plan for me and you that he will help us along with, but not force.
All of that for the first part of your question, the second part is easy. The end times will happen, the only question is who is in heaven and who is in heaven. It will happen as God foreknows and has foreordained, our choice matter not, in this regard
When you question why God would tell him the consequences, it is because God lets us chose our own path. To know the consequences is to stir a certain situation in the direction you want it to go. Rather, God wanted to give us freewill, and kept to his word that we had freewill, just as he kept to his word that Jesus would come to save us. That we both agree on. We both say that God gave us free will, and that we choose our own path, and that Jesus saved us. Now, saying that God doesn't know our own choices, but knows his own choices, and the outcome of everything that will happen, and knows only a few things, or most htings, would discredit him some power. He isn't mostly powerful, rather he is ALL powerful. God can surely look into the future, can he not? And if God can look into the future would that not mean he doesn't know your choices? He didn't choose them for you, you chose them yourself, but he knew that you would choose it because he saw you choose it when looking into the future. The thing about freewill is we still choose our destinies even if a psychic told us what was going to happen. If God came down and said you are going to choose this, and you decided to choose otherwise, would that mean God was wrong, or did it mean God tricked you? I'm trying to get this point across that knowing something has nothing to do with forcing something. God didn't forordain you to make that choice, he just knew you were going to make that choice. I dont know how to say this any better, or any more clear, i feel like i have repeated myself 100x, i just want to get the point across that knowing is different from forcing, just as saying is different from doing.

Good Grief, somewhere, Your answers are getting worse not better,
You remain elusive, and hidden, you will not come out of the shadows into the light of truth, It is good to see you have converted,...me thinks, thou does protest to little? But, to see your humorous side most enjoyable, I was doubtful of such in ye? I do smell your fear.
And the rest? Well it presents itself as someone trying to present themselves as having an internet Oxford degree.
Your new found humor is most enjoyable, thank you for such sport.
Then don’t be verbosity. This is BTS so I have leeway in mockery correct? Loquacious is a much superior word, I look forward to seeing it in your repertoire in the future.
My keyboard will soon collapse, from verbose.
I am falling asleep………….press post; confuse burro even more or give him some homework? Post! zzzzzzzzz
Then don’t be verbosity.
However, God can stop look forward and be like oh yeah he is going to do this and this before you exist because he can use his "psychic" abilities to do so.
Well, there's not enough water on the earth to flood the planet
So, yes, I don't believe in the Christian God, but I do believe in a Supreme Being.

According to my understanding, the Zionists have tricked many into worshipping a demon called Jah-ve or Yah-weh(two syllables).

"Javhe(Yahweh) has a very grave Karma, since he was the secret perpetrator of the crucifixion of Christ, and he is also directly responsible for the failure of human evolution on the Earth." -The Revolution of Beelzebub
The proper pronunciation of the Tetragrammaton is three syllables(or Four):
IOD-HE-VE, Ya-Ha-Wah, Jahovah, etc.
This is the name of our Internal-God.
For more on this, see the Gnostic teachings of Kabbalah:
The First Commandment
...These Three Supernals are what in Hebrew are called ELOHIM. Elohim means "Gods and Goddesses." It is a female name (Eloah) ending with a plural masculine name (im).
The Father, the first Sephirah, emanates from the Unknown, the Unknowable – called in Hebrew the Ain Soph, the Limitless, the Nothingness. That is why when you read the Hebrew Bible the name of God has four letters, because Moses knew very well that the Holy Trinity, the three Supernals, the three primary forces, emerge from the Unknowable. And that Unknowable is what is called the Cosmic Common Eternal Father; which has no form.
In Kabbalah, we call the Father “Kether” and is symbolized with the letter IOD, the Son “Chokmah” is symbolized with the letter – HE, the Holy Spirit “Binah” is symbolized with the letter – VAU:
IOD HE VAU which in Latin Letters is I A O
IOD HE VAU emanated from a uterus, from an Unknowable Divinity – the Ain Soph: that uterus is symbolised by the letter HE in Hebrew. That is why when writing the name of God we repeat the letter HE at the end of the name: IOD HE VAU HE – this is the Holy name of God, which in Greek is called the Tetragrammaton.
When we are uniting the three Supernals, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, with the Unknowable Seity, then we are making a Divinity that has no form, that we can form no image of, it is impossible to symbolise, to have an image of that. Many Kabbalists call this Iod Heva, or in English we write as Jehovah. Of course, IOD HE VAU HE is that Unknowable God which is symbolised in the World of God, in that first triangle, by a Great Head (vast countenance). In the Zohar we read that God appears, Kabbalistically speaking, like a Great Head, but only showing the right side, never the left, because the right side is related with the three Supernals, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, three forces in one God, the Holy Trinity. The left side, which is not shown, is the Unknowable Seity, the Ain Soph- which is from where the three Supernals emanate.
That is why in the First Commandment Moses says:
“Hear, O Israel: Jehovah our God is one:
“And thou shalt love Jehovah thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.”
(Deuteronomy: 6:4, 5)...
