Then He said to them, "The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.
Notice that Jesus saw the multitudes of unbelievers as a great and plentiful harvest, yet to be reaped in the future. Jesus was lovingly moved to compassion for these unbelieving multitudes and He did not see them as being cast into a hell of eternal torment. He asked His disciples to pray for the Lord of the Harvest to send out labourers so that the great harvest of the multitudes can be reaped when they become ripe and ready in Christ, in God's time and in His order. It is important to understand that Jesus did not ask His disciples to pray for any more labourers but for them to pray that the few labourers are sent out into His harvest. In comparison with the great multitudes of unbelievers, the labourers are few and they will remain few as only few are called and chosen by God to be His Elect Bride.
These few labourers, God's Elect Bride of Christ are the Firstfruits of the harvest who will be reaped when they are resurrected in the First Resurrection at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Then, working together with His Bride, Jesus Christ, the Lord of the Harvest, will reap the Great Harvest of the great multitudes of the rest of humanity, yet to be saved in the Ages to come.
Ultimately, in God's time and His order, every person without exception will be reconciled to God in fulfilment of Colossians 1:15-20. This is the Great Mystery, which most Christians do not believe nor understand because of the false doctrine of hell.
