Truth From John

Jesus spoke these things; and lifting up His eyes to heaven, He said, " . . . all whom You have given Him, He may give eternal life. . . I have manifested Your name to the men whom You gave Me out of the world . . .  I do not ask on behalf of the world, but of those whom You have given Me . . . I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word . . .   Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am . . . "  --John 17 highlights
 
"This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up on the last day."  --John 6:39
Does Jesus ALWAYS do the will of the Father?
Yes.
So does He lose any?
No.
Yet . . . we know that not all are saved, right?
But if Jesus loses NONE that the Father gives Him, then who are these that end up lost?
Surely it must be those who are NOT given to the Son by the Father.
There are an "elect" . . . and there are "non-elect".
 
If God wanted to could He save everyone? 
Yes.
Does He everyone?
No.
Whose will determines who will be saved, God or man?
Surely it must be God's will. . . .
The Father gives an "elect" to the Son, which "elect" the Son DOES NOT LOSE.
