God never even brings judgment upon the earth without first giving the people a warning. God never does nothing without declaring it first what He's going to do.

And He gives people a choice, and...you can do right or wrong...See, God can never change His nature. His program can never change from what He started with, because He's infinite and His program and His ideas are all perfect. So if He would change It, that would show that He had learned more. So, being infinite, He cannot learn more... His first decision is always perfect, and there's nothing can ever change it. See?

God, before man ever...had a chance to do wrong, God put him on the basis to where he could accept or deny, he could receive or not.
