Also, our idea that there isn't any time in eternity I don't think is exactly correct, because in The Bible it says that His going forth has been been from everlasting. In order to "go forth" you would think there to be a context of some kind of time. Our time is actually likely a block of different time, even in kind, than the time of eternity past and, present and future. Likely a much limited form of time than His.
Micah 5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, [though] thou be little among the thousands of Judah, [yet] out of thee shall he come forth unto me [that is] to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth [have been] from of old, from everlasting.

(The LORD is Holy, separated from all sin, perfect, righteous, high and lifted up.)
The problem is that without Time, all events and actions become simultaneous.
So, God, if not under Time, did everything simultaneously in God’s realm. In other words, things such as before and after do not apply. This brings about irreconcilable consequences when God tries to order sequential events.
