IS ALL KNOWING
One of the supreme traits of the Judean-Christian God is that He is
“Omniscient,” that is, all knowing. Again, like God’s other traits, this
is a trait that is difficult to wrap our minds around. Knowing all
things, at all times, is a truly vast capability worthy of a great God.
The Scriptures tell us that the great God fills the heavens and the
earth, (Jeremiah. 23: 24); knows all the stars of Heaven and “calleth
them all by their names” (Psalms 147: 4). He has total awareness of the
minutest detail and even knows the number of hair on our head (Matthew
No human action can escape His gaze. For those who think they can, the
Bible has a stern warning: “Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their
counsel from the Lord, and their works are in the dark, and they say,
Who sees us? And who knows us?” (Isaiah 29:15). In the same vein, Daniel
assures us that “He reveals the deep and secret things; He knows what is
in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him” (Daniel 2: 20).
God sees our actions and knows our every thought. He “searcheth all
hearts, and understands all the imaginations of the thoughts” (I
Chronicles 28: 9). In the New Testament, the Apostle Peter tells us
that, “God knows the hearts” (Acts 15:8). Furthermore, he adds that
“Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight; but
all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have
to do” (Hebrews 4:13).
God, therefore, has total knowledge of every particle in the
universe. Every human action is naked before Him, and no thought or
attitude can ever escape his awareness. He is, indeed, the all-knowing
