Third person omniscient point of view was quite common in times gone by, but today's stories' point of view is usually third person limited or first person.

Being omniscient without omnipotence could be a version of Hell.

Or, being omnipotent without being omniscient could be Hell for everyone else!

Theoretically, omnipotence could bring forth omniscience.

Haha, but then 'theoretically' the reverse is true too! If I am omniscient, then I know all things, including how to make myself omnipotent.

But you also might know you can't.

Okay, I surrender! I remember from my long ago freshman philosophy course that there were arguments that none of the three 'omnis', omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence could simultaneously coexist. As well as arguments supporting the notion that they could. But I don't remember the arguments and think I may be overmatched here, even if I could conjure them up. 😁
