“God’s knowledge differs from ours in that it is prior to the existence of the things known. They exist because he knows them. Human knowledge is derived from observation and arises from experience. God does not have to wait on the event to know it as we do; he knows it before it happens and it only happens because he knows it and wills it.

“It may be asked, ‘How can knowledge be infinite, if knowledge has an object, for objects are limited?’ It is because God knows possibilities as well as actualities.”

Broughton Knox, Everlasting God, p. 51.
