Re 1:1 ¶ The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: 2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. Eph 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: God is a time traveler. We know He has existed in all times. Even the future. God showed John the end of the world. He chose us before the foundation of the world. Before the world was framed He knew us according to scripture. This has already played out somewhere in time. God exists outside of time. We are already in heaven or hell. God showed John the end like it was f-fwd on a vcr.
