Whether by the Divine Revelation a Prophet Knows all that Can be Known Prophetically?
Objection 1: It would seem that by the Divine revelation a prophet knows all that can be known prophetically. For it is written (Amos 3:7): "The Lord God doth nothing without revealing His secret to His servants the prophets." Now whatever is revealed prophetically is something done by God.

Now prophecy is a "Divine revelation," as stated above [3663](A[3]). Therefore

But good is the cause of evil, as was said above [431](A[1]). Therefore, since God is the cause of every good,
