How would you actually feel if your belief was that God gave up finding all that was lost .(if you don't believe all are found, that is what you really believe)only to discover he found all that were lost ?

I think many of us have forgotten he found us.
Why do you believed that all mankind are children of God? What of the Nephelim? They are children of fallen angels. What of the Pharasees? "You brood of vipers" Who are the chaff among the wheat?

It's true that not all are called sheep, however God owns all, not just the sheep:

Psa 50:10 For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.
Psa 50:11 I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.

Everything is owned by Jesus. Everything is His, and for His glory. And everything will praise Him accordingly:

Psa 145:9 The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
Psa 145:10 All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD ; and thy saints shall bless thee.

I absolutely pray for mercy on every soul that has ever walked on this earth! We can only pray for the grace of the LORD. Hell/the abyss is biblical, however. I don't wish that on anyone, but the LORD makes it clear it's there for a reason.

Paul (as Saul) would have been part of that camp called "brood vipers" prior to his conversion. So would all of us who now believe. Like unbelievers today, we too were also "brood vipers" that both John and Jesus spoke of. Like them, we too were once children of wrath, that Paul speaks of:

Eph 2:3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

If God can adopt us, He can surely adopt others just as easily. The Lord has a special place in His heart for orphans, that need adoption:

Exo 22:22 Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child.
Exo 22:23 If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry;
Exo 22:24 And my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.

Best not to lay a charge against orphans my friend...

It may be there for a reason, but that really doesn't make the case for anyone being placed in it for eternity, does it?

Surely it can exist empty and to remind us what could have been, right?

If you can show where i have said what i have bolded in your post i will give you an answer.

Robin, Paul was a Pharisee, you are a pharisee, i am a pharisee,you are a viper, i am a viper when you see the truth that we are everything good, bad and ugly in the scriptures you will be a man of mercy and a man who continually forgives sin, a man after God's own heart.

Have you tried having mercy on every soul, and extending grace to every soul instead of praying for it ?

Freely give what has been freely shown and extended to you.
