If God knows the whole of History and all events are part of some ineffable plan, then there is only one possible choice that any of us can make in any given situation.

2Co 5:21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
God in the ultimate act of mercy and love sent his perfect sinless Son to die our death. (Pay our penalty for sin). Every sin we have committed or will commit Christ has already died for. All we need to do is believe in God and accept this wonderful gift and we are guaranteed to spend eternity with God. What a wonderful truth!
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23

The choice is: God or Satan
Once that choice is made the plan for your selection takes effect.
If things seem a blurr it is because the choice has not been made. People in between (on the fence) will have to eventually make that choice. Those who have been tricked will have an opportunity to correct their choice. God knows and is aware of the confusion Satan has inflicted on mankind.
Hope this helps to clairfy.

This is part of the issue at hand, you say you have a choice between God or Satan? Its not a choice there Im sorry to say. On one side you have this. You either belive in our God or you will burn in hell..
Or you chose God and are forever in the loving clouds ect ect..

God could not have given us free will because
Free will would allow anyone to make a decision without consequence.
If there is a consequence, that would mean an outside source could influence your will thus negating your free will.
