KB: I have been wondering what salvation looks like when viewed from a timeless existence. Seems that all of life past, present and future would fold together. Viewing one's life from this timeless perspective would allow you to know how one's response today would affect them tomorrow because you would see them in whole rather than in part. It would also allow one to be chosen 'yesterday' based on one's actions 'tomorrow' because there is no difference between them. Not that I have anything but questions about this :(
KB has posed this before when he and I have discussed "eternity" or "eons" or time in general with God.
God is beyond space and time. He just IS.
There is also the question of the "second death."
My thoughts are that perhaps those who do not believe, or do the most wicked of things are punished for what may seem like an eternity, but may only be for a time. Perhaps they are given the chance to choose (because every knee will bow, every tongue will proclaim)until they may join Him in the timeless time. I can't assume from that verse that only the "saved" or predestined make up the "every." I'm taking it at its word. (After I look up the actual word!)
