A classic argument is that Omniscience (all knowing) and Omnipotence (all powerfullness) are *incompatible* concepts. For instance, if someone were "all-knowing" then they would know the future -- but if they knew the future then they would be *powerless* (in a sense) to change that future.
Any knowledge of the future would also nullify "free-will."
Or it could be someone who knows all the possibilities that exist and the outcome of each possibility.
