God Knows . . . in Detail

“Only I can tell you the future before it even happens. Everything I plan will come to pass, for I do whatever I wish.” - (Isaiah 46:10)

I am always amazed at my wife Cathe’s ability to remember details. When I tell her about something that happened, she always asks questions. She will interrupt me mid-story because she wants details that seem insignificant to me at the time.

“Who cares?” I will tell her. “Let me finish the story.”

But then, when I am retelling the story some time later, she notices that I left out a part.

“How do you know?” I will say. “You weren’t there.”

“No,” she says, “but I remember.”

And she is right. She remembers it better than I remember it because I forget details.

Some of us may forget details, but God does not. Not only does God remember every detail of the past, but He also knows the future with complete accuracy.

Revelation 13 describes a time when the Antichrist will introduce a cashless society. He will require people to take a mark by which no one can buy or sell without it, and the endgame of this is to cause people to engage in devil worship.

The technology is effectively already here. Forty years ago this would have seemed impossible, if not implausible. But now with all of the developments in technology, we can see how such a thing actually could unfold before our eyes in real time.

God said in Isaiah, “Remember the things I have done in the past. For I alone am God! I am God, and there is none like me.Only I can tell you the future before it even happens. Everything I plan will come to pass, for I do whatever I wish.” (46:9–10).

When God tells us what is about to happen, He is not going out on a limb. He knows the future as well as we know the past.
