I am inclined to think that God put the wheels of life in motion and then He has been sitting back watching life unfold here on earth. I am not really sure that God knows what we are going to do next. Some people believe in our own free will, while others believe we are predestined in life. Those who are in the former camp believe that God gives to us a free will and that we make choices accordingly. Others who are in the latter camp believe that our lives are all mapped out for us even before we are born and that only God knows the map of each of us. In the latter camp, there are those who believe that God knows exactly everything we are going to do in our lives from the moment we are born until we die and that even our deaths are predestined. In the latter camp there is no free choice we make on anything in that God knows beforehand exactly what we are going to do. In this regard, God knows who is saved and who isn’t. God knows already who will be in heaven and who will not be in heaven. It’s just that in the latter camp, WE don’t know what God’s choices for us are.
When we are chosen as I claim to be chosen, God knows us before we are born and He follows us closely all through our lives, even intervening with Angels if He finds it necessary to do so. When one is called, it matters not to God that much about what a person decides to do at any given time. This is why many are called and few are chosen. Jesus was chosen before the foundation of the world was formed. He was with God in the beginning. I don’t know how God decides to choose certain people for certain tasks while others are called. Therefore, I say there is some middle ground between free will and predestination. We make a conscious choice every moment of every single day as to whether we decide to live or we decide to let others live. I believe that when it comes to Human Life, every person makes a conscious choice as to whether one will purposely take a Human Life or not. And it’s not that God knows how everyone is going to decide. In fact, I could turn on my Angels in an instant, but I won’t. In fact, either taking my own life or that life of another is a choice I STILL make every moment of every single day. But evidently my Angels knew that I would always make the right choices in regard to everything I either do or don’t do. But this is why I am chosen. I am chosen for a specific task with a specific Message for a specific time. My Angels knew that I would do what I felt I would need to do to prepare the way for the coming of the Messiah. I possess a certain knowledge that has been planted in my brain by Angels. There is NOTHING I am able to do to undo this, for it is this knowledge I possess that will keep me on the path already chosen for me.
In a sense, God does put the wheels of life in motion and it is up to us to make the most of what God has given to us. And then at times, God makes choices based on what He observes. And because I AM NOT God, I don’t know what He either knows we will do or what he doesn’t know we will do. Only God can know what He knows. No one is God to be able to answer the age old question as to whether we have choices or our lives are predestined. It is the will of God that NO ONE purposely take a Human Life. But if God could manifest this part of His will at all times, no one would purposely take a Human Life. In this regard we ALL have the free will to do as we wish. I KNOW the will of God and I can convey this to the world any way I wish. But I also know the world won’t believe me, because if it did, I COULD usher in the new millennium of Peace just by my word. I can’t do this because one, I can’t defeat Satan; and two, I’m not God.
