God wants every person to find eternal life.
Jesus died for the world (John 3:16). God is not willing that any perish but that all come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9). He desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:4).
Every child under the age of about five, who dies, goes directly to heaven, where they will live forever. People who have visited heaven confirm this truth.
The truth that God gave His Son Jesus to the world reveals God’s love for the world and His eternal compassion for all people.
Jesus has revealed in recent times more proof of His love and compassion for all, including for those lost in hell.
Jesus Sheds Tears for the Lost
In 1976, Jesus visited an American woman Mary Baxter and took her to hell. He commissioned her to tell others about it.
Her book A Divine Revelation of Hell is the story of her visits to hell and heaven and her visions and revelations.
Numerous times during their visits to hell, Jesus shed His tears for those lost in hell.
In the midst of their visits, after speaking to those lost in hell, Jesus shed tears of compassion. Jesus said to her:
“‘God, our Father, gave each one of us a will so that we could choose whether we would serve Him or Satan. You see, God did not make hell for His people. Satan deceives many into following him, but hell was made for Satan and his angels. It is not my desire, nor that of My Father, that anyone should perish.’ Tears of compassion ran down Jesus’ cheeks” (A Divine Revelation of Hell, 63).
“Tears fell down Jesus’ cheeks as they moved to the next pit” (A Divine Revelation of Hell, p. 34).
Jesus Will Have to Wipe Away His Own Tears
Jesus took a minister named Jesse Duplantis to heaven. While there, Jesus has revealed that He will shed tears when He has turn away those who do not make it to heaven. He said:
“’The worst day of my life is yet to come . . . You know that scripture where I said I will wipe away all tears in heaven?’” (Close Encounters of the God Kind, p. 125)
Jesus was referring to Revelation 21:4-5: “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Jesus said:
“’Those include the tears in my eyes, Jesse. On that great Judgment Day, I will have to tell some of the creation I love to depart from me. I dread that day. I dread it! I dread it! Jesse, it’s final. I can’t change it. Tears flowed from my eyes the day my creation, Adam, fell. But I knew I would send myself. I had a chance to touch people. But that day is coming, and it’s final. Once it’s said, I can’t change it. I have to wipe the tears from my eyes. Tell them I’m coming, Jesse’” (Close Encounters of the God Kind, p. 127-128).
From “A Divine Revelation of Hell” by Mary Baxter:
Jesus said: “I came to save all men. I desire that all who are lost will repent and call upon My name. It is not My will that any should perish, but have everlasting life. Sad to say, most will not repent of their sins before they die, and they will go to hell. But the way to heaven is the same for all people. You must be born again to enter the kingdom of God. You must come to the Father in My name and repent of your sins. You must sincerely give your heart to God and serve Him” (94).
