The OneTrueGod object's omniscience is an ability to run the KnowShit method on every variable of particle position and velocity in every reality, past, present and future.
The beauty of His omniscience is that He understands what is best for us even when we don't.

As God's omniscience is engaged for the finding of them all out, so is his omnipotence for the bringing of them all in.
This confession of the divine omniscience is here extorted from these idolaters, to the honour of God and their own condemnation, who though they knew there is a God in heaven, to whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from whom no secret is hid, yet offered up their prayers and praises to dumb idols, that have eyes and see not, ears and hear not.
