This concept just always caused a conflict in my mind. I can remove the idea of predestination with knowing something in advance, why would the Watch Tower insist that God chooses not to know something? Is that even possible for God? If He knows all things, wouldn't He already know what He is choosing not to know?
(Isaiah 46:9, 10) 9?Remember the first things of a long time ago, that I am the Divine One and there is no other God, nor anyone like me; 10?the One telling from the beginning the finale.?.?.
*** w06 6/1 p. 25 par. 17 Jehovah Tells "From the Beginning the Finale" ***
Jehovah apparently chose not to foresee what Adam-and Eve-would do, even though He has the ability to know everything in advance. It is therefore a question, not of whether Jehovah can foresee the future, but of whether he chooses to do so. Furthermore, we can reason that Jehovah, being a God of love, would not knowingly and cruelly predetermine that rebellion-with all its sad consequences-should take place. (Matthew 7:11; 1 John 4:8) Thus, as far as Jehovah's exercise of foreknowledge is concerned, it is selective.

True, God can foresee certain events, but in many cases, he has chosen not to use his foreknowledge. Because God is almighty, he is free to exercise his abilities as he wishes, not according to the wishes of imperfect humans.
