I'm afraid I'm missing your point.

Christ's death profits the elect alone. That was foreordained from all eternity.

Also, the manner in which you reference predestination, it makes me wonder if it really is nothing more than a way of attributing action to a passive reality.  So, for example, Christ's death profit the elect alone.  Yes, this is true, because anyone who is in hell has not profited from Christ's death.  And it was foreordained from all eternity.  But what actually happened?  Did they not profit from Christ's death because they weren't elect?  Or were they not elect because they didn't profit from Christ's death?  Did God actively not elect them, precluding any chance for them to profit from Christ's death, or did they refuse God's offer of mercy and forgiveness, and thus any profit of Christ's death, and because of that cannot be elected by God?
