CARM Theological Dictionary
It is God's knowledge about things that will happen. Past, present, and future are all "present" in the mind of God. He inhabits eternity (Isaiah 57:15). God has infinite knowledge (Isaiah 41:22-23) and knows all things in advance. In the N.T. it does not always mean "to know beforehand" but also to cause to be. See 1 Peter 1:2; 1Pe 1:20.
