An anti-Theist has stated - “. . . to believe in the God of the Bible we would have to have both [no freewill so that we can fulfill his prophecies] and [freewill so that we can be judged for our choices].”

Fulfilling God’s prophecies is absolutely possible within the context of human freewill. Any given prophecy in the Bible is based on the foreknowledge of God. This foreknowledge has already taken into consideration the choices that will be made by a person’s freewill. For example, Jesus prophesied that Peter would deny Him three times. This prophecy was made with the foreknowledge that each time that Peter was accused of being a friend of Jesus, Peter had the freewill to be honest or to lie, and that Peter would choose to lie.
