God is sovereign and in control of all he has created. He knit us together in our mother's womb (Psalm 139:13, Job 10:11). 

Acts 17:24-26, Paul is making his Gospel presentation to the Areopagus. In this passage he states: "The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything. And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place."

The end of this statement that God determines the allotted periods, or their lifespans and the places that they will live their lifespans. So, the answer to the question is yes, God not only knows the hour and place we will die, but he is in control of this.

It is a humbling thing to come to the realization that we are at the hands of a merciful creator who created us to bring him glory on earth- that we have little control over the time we have on earth, but we are to bring glory to God even with the little time or as much time we have on earth.

GOD tells in His words of Truth, His Word--The BIBLE, that He is omnipotent, omnipresent and omnicient "all knowing" and that "before the foundation of the world" He predestined us in completeness and wholeness. Simply put, GOD knew and knows every element of DNA within us from conception to dust to which our physical bodies shall return. Also, He knew and knows every single thought, action, word or deed that we will bring forth in the completeness of our life unto our last breath. GOD formed us in our mother's womb and as a Child of The Most High, our Lord and Savior, JESUS CHRIST we have been redeemed unto Him and will dwell in His presence for all eternity! He tells us that "to be absent from the body is to be present with The LORD"! So, without any doubt in my mind, if JESUS CHRIST IS YOUR PERSONAL LORD AND SAVIOR, He knows the exact millisecond when you will die! --Andy--
