If god is all-knowing and created the beginning, end, all in between, plus all possible choices, rewards, punishments, space/time, then there cannot
be free will. All is known to god, all is written and created, therefore no surprises for the almighty. He can travel back and forth in time, change
people's minds, etc. Are you perhaps saying that god has NO clue about choices you decide on? Even the bible depicts an already god-planned,
spectacular ending with epic jesus fighting a dragon for crapssake! Give it a rest, the biblical god story is full of irrationalities, obvious
contradictions and violent, primitive logic.
I disagree on the premise that all is written and created, and that we are fated to follow a certain path. We have a frightening ability to act on
free will, and crimes happen because of the self-same free will. There are many "surprising" things that people and demons will do. The most
noteworthy is the sin of rebellion against their creator, the first commandment is to love the Lord thy God with all your strength, all your soul, and
all your being, which is of course intended entirely in terms of wholesome loves. God promises powerful delusions to those who follow any form of
idolatry. Idolatry can include wisdom and knowledge, following cult logic - which Christianity is Not - or following corporate/job logic past a point
of healthy concience..
I do believe that God can look into anything he wishes, can solve every crime, but will only help so many people. I've learned that cowardice,
hopelessness, and despair or moping are failings and weakness, almost crimes in the eyes of the Almighty : heaven will meet you if you give at least
fifty percent of your effort, and you won't even sense angelic prescence until you provide approximately forty percent effort. So many get lost
trying to "bail water from their ships" while others are goading them on to bail faster while punching holes in their hull. The proper order is,
drive away the invader punching holes in the hull, patch the hull, then bail the water. You need a ship that will fully float, so if two are damaing,
both need to be driven away first. Scope to see what is actually there instead of measuring by the length of your own yardstick, and you'll see what
poisons your influx one second at a time, and you'll learn to target the actual offenders well : no more false blame and false guilt.
I don't know if God knows all things that happen in times ahead, but I think it's one timeline for all of us, in which everything happens in,
complete with our free will. Anyone who seeks to separate a man, woman, boy or girl from loving their creator, or looks to corrupt them towards wordly
practices, has no love for that individual (or they remain in ignorance). Absolutely none. Anyone who promotes a hellish lifestyle among them, draws
their influence or perspective towards criminality or rebelliousness against God or His angels, deserve their fate. That's their soul future, and
whatever the short-term gain is, it can't compare to the richness and ethical awesomeness which we may experience, forever, in living a life while
walking with Our Lord.
If a person assaults you, then reprises against a defensive threat back, they are guilty of a double etendre, the current crime plus the reprisal. If
they reprise three times, they are guilty of the current crime, plus the penalty for both reprisals. Revenge is usually always worse than the crime,
and better to be wronged than do the wronging. Add a fifty-time multiplicity and a chaos factor, and the person can become absolutely spun on a bad
revenge attitude (despite causing the problem), and can become that much more guilty by escalating the issue. It would be better if we waited
patiently in God, as was requested, and allowed Him the vengeance. That often means waiting for matters to unfold in His time, which is usually based
on preserving secrets, allowing room for free will to be undertaken, allowing due process, and examining the need for facts first. Hell plots are
often absolutely diabolical. Besides, the more demons which are destroyed and bound, the more likelihood that people are associating with a "small
world" problem where they allow their souls to slide to riftlike depths.
Stop deeping demons! Stay blessed above it; that old adage "as above so below" stinks of the "wormrot of false heavens", and only theosophic
lightbringers will advocate seeking out Lucifer, already destroyed, or other power-players in the hell realm. Much of Canada has already thrown off
it's spiritual shackles, and will in no way serve the nwo, it's demons, nor it's human agents.
