Contradiction between ability to see the future and free will of Humans

Assumption 01. God has the ability to see the future
Assumption 02. Human has got free will.
Assumption 03. God loves human.

First, God created the paradise and set up the Forbidden tree to see if human is obeying to the God command. After that the Adam and Eve were created with ability to live forever. Thereafter God gave Adam and Eve the free will and free will to judge their action freely.

Now Adam has his own free will that means it is Adam who decides whether to eat or not from the Forbidden Tree. in other words, it is up to him to be obedient or not obedient to God's command.

This is the clash between the humans' free will and God's ability to see the future. If it is Adam who decides whether to eat or not to eat from The Forbidden tree how the god see what Adam would do before Adam use his free will to take his decision. So it is unacceptable that the God has the ability to see the future.

if someone says the God can see the future because he has an influence on future actions people would do, then what Adams decide is not his own. In that case, I would say the god is also responsible for the portion of Adams disobedient action.

If someone says the God decided not to look at what Adams would do then I would say the god didn't use his ability to see the future at the very critical time of human history in terms f the Bible.

However, it is also unacceptable if the same person accepts that the god uses his ability to see the future which is beyond Adam's death. The reason is then the god would have seen peoples die with sin and in turns, the god should be convinced that Adam or his next generation would have eaten from The Forbidden tree and died.

If the same person says the god never use his ability to see the future that is also unacceptable because what the use of an ability to see the future which is never used. And also it questions about the genuineness of that ability because which is never used.

If someone says the God didn't use his power to see the future until Adam's death and he used that same power after that, it is also acceptable because we accepted earlier that the God loves humans and created them to live forever.

Based on the above, I assume that God had known about Adams death after having eaten from The Forbidden tree.

Then we have to accept that God knew Adams death when he created the world, created the paradise and set up the Forbidden Tree. And even when he decided to give the free will to Adam and Eve.

However, the god decided to go ahead and create the world, the paradise, and everything even after convincing himself that Adam will choose the death rather than eternal life. Further, He creates humans not to die but live forever. And also the god set up a tree to judge Adam completely knowing Adam's future decision. Moreover, He decided to give free will to Adam and Eve which he didn't give to the animals that free will Adam used to disobey God. Finally, He kept having direct communication with Adam knowing Adam is definitely going to disobey to the god very soon.

This doesn't make sense to me.
