    Are we placed upon that per book of revelation by either His elective Will, or based upon our faith response to Him?

    Are we in it from eternity past, or from the time we actually accepted Christ and was 'saved?"

    False dichotomy. It is His will we respond in faith.

    from when we actually believe, or from eternity itself?

    Both. From our vantage point it is when we believe, and from an omnitemporal God it is from eternity past, present and future.
