If the language is countable, then the model is countable - it has countable many elements. This is just the result. Inside the model there is no bijection between real and naturals, but the bijection exists between the expressions of the language and the elements. Your epsilon- relation stuff doesn`t mean anything outside the model, because it doesn`t say anything about the countable language that we are dealing with.
