Learning Good From Evil

It's so prone for human nature to want to put in a box and be the authority.. and I think human nature doesn't wait for God's revealing.. but puts things in a box of understanding..
- I was never so fascinated as when I realized if the spring Hebrew holy days prophesied our Lord's 1st advent, then surely the peaks of his long 2nd advent would correspond to the fall Hebrew holy days of Trumpets, Day of Atonement & Tabernacles.. and if there are 1000 years represented by the 10 days between Trumpets (return, first resurrection) and Atonement (Day of Judgment) then likely 5 days between Atonement and Tabernacles (when the Father Himself will tabernacle with man upon Earth) represents 500 years.
- It's only toward the close of the 500 years, after all humans have experienced being resurrected, and have lived through a long day, or short age, of the examination of all human history, etc, that it is written "those not believing will go to the 2nd death" (ageduring is a closer translation than "for ever and ever") - but who after all that, isn't going to "believe"?
- I think there's only one verse which can be used to possibly imply one has to "believe" before death, and that's when Jesus told the pharisees if they didn't turn (repent) they would "die in their sins" but this surely is simply because the 1st resurrection at first is much more joyful than the 2nd.. [Life, though literal, is a metaphor, lesson, and drama, some are 'chosen' to believe in this life, through no goodness or doing of themselves, yet it's still free will God is letting run it's course, He just knows all things from the beginning to the 'end' or result.]
