Mark 9:24.

Doubt is part and parcel of our sinful nature. Prayer helps.

Let us proclaim the mystery of our faith: Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.

Lord I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.

God knows the beginning, middle and end. Does this mean he tries to change our fate? That it was one of the reasons he had Jesus come down to us? To give us a change o be saved? Because if not we would all end up in the same place?

Another question is God doesn't change and yet he is seem doing it a few times in OT

God KNOWS all that we CAN do, even what we probably WILL do and even what we WILL do ( not that hard when you consider how predictable humans are).
God sets in place the answer to our questions, it's up to US to get there.

God doesn't change in the bible, the writers make it so to teach a lesson about WHO talk is dealing with, NOT to teach that God "changes" His Mind.
Sodom and Gomorrah come to mind.

What is free will? Is it just a illusion just to make it seem that we come to Jesus by choice and not by the path is already chosen?

Define, "come to Jesus."

What does it mean if one comes to Jesus?
1 Corinthians 1:9
9 God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
