God has to compare the “what has yet to come” against the current universe to overcome human decadence and the immoralities of disease, debt, racism, crime, and violence. God knows human nature and where people can roam innocently when left to their own devices. While the bulk of people want eternal happiness, the sole path to is to accept Jesus as the true Messiah and Savior. This allows Him to know, and to guide, each personal future event by what occurs during past and present characteristic spirit of beings.
