God Knows The Future

Has God really said …

that he knows the future and can make it known to his prophets?

Here are some Bible passages that provide an answer for this question:

Isaiah 41:21-26

21 "Present your case," the LORD says. "Bring forward your strong arguments," The King of Jacob says.
22 Let them bring forth and declare to us what is going to take place; As for the former events, declare what they were, That we may consider them and know their outcome. Or announce to us what is coming;
23 Declare the things that are going to come afterward, That we may know that you are gods; Indeed, do good or evil, that we may anxiously look about us and fear together.
24 Behold, you are of no account, And your work amounts to nothing; He who chooses you is an abomination.
25 "I have aroused one from the north, and he has come; From the rising of the sun he will call on My name; And he will come upon rulers as upon mortar, Even as the potter treads clay."
26 Who has declared this from the beginning, that we might know? Or from former times, that we may say, "He is right!"? Surely there was no one who declared, Surely there was no one who proclaimed, Surely there was no one who heard your words.

Isaiah 48:3

"I foretold the former things long ago, my mouth announced them and I made them known; then suddenly I acted, and they came to pass."
Our Conclusion The God of Israel does in fact claim that He alone knows the future and can declare it. "Prediction is so natural to and so much part of the divine activity that it can almost be ascribed as an attribute of God himself."
(Walter C. Kaiser, Jr., The Messiah in the Old Testament, p. 235)

Christians need to know the whole of Israel and bible prophecy. To me it is black/white even though I still search for evidence!
