Meaning of being protected from ‘destruction by sin’

Question

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

“Whoever says the following ten times, at the end of every Fajr prayer, while his feet are still folded, before speaking:

La ilaha illallahu, wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu, yuhyi wa yumitu, wa huwa ‘ala kulli shayin qadir

Translation:

None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, Alone without partner, to Him belongs all that exists, and to Him is the praise, He gives life and causes death, and He is powerful over all things

ten good deeds shall be written for him, 10 sins will be wiped away from him, ten degrees shall be raised up for him, and he shall be in security all that day from every disliked thing, and he shall be in protection from Shaytan, and no sin will meet him or destroy him that day, except for associating partners with Allah.

My question is: 

Does this mean that it is impossible for a person to commit a sin on that day and does this include all major and minor sins?

Eternity in Jannah

Question

In the Hereafter a person either goes to Jannah or Jahannam or spends some time in Jahannam and then goes to Jannah, that life has no ending as if it’s eternal. My question is that eternity is an attribute which belongs to Allah Himself alone. How can we humans have that or any part of eternity?
