Most “Christians” like to pick and choose what Scripture verses they quote. One of the most famous is John 3:16. Most can quote it verbatim by heart:
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.
A proper translation of the original Greek would be more like the following:
16 For Yahweh so loved the Society, that He gave the most-beloved Son, in order that each who believes in Him would not be lost but would have eternal life.
Jesus Christ did say plainly, “I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” Matthew 15:24, another verse Christians ignore. The house of Israel is certainly a “Society,” which Webster has defined as: 1) a group of persons, etc, forming a single community. 5) an organized group with some interest in common. This single community, this Society, has one thing in common, they are all descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel. [Not to be confused with the so-called jews – they are not members of this Society.]
Christians further believe that the word “world,” [kosmos] as used here, means everyone, everywhere in the world from the time John’s gospel was written. All people, everywhere. But these same Christians then ignore the other passages wherein the word “world” [oikoumene] is found, e.g, in Luke 2:1:
And it came to pass, in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed [registered].
This does not mean that the Chinese, the Mongolians or the Aborigines of Australia were to be taxed. Only those citizens subject to the Roman Empire were required to register for tax purposes. This is but one example of how the word “world” does not mean everyone, everywhere.
The entire Bible is written by Israelites, for Israelites, about Israelites and to Israelites. The Bible, and its message, despite the constant and unrelenting propaganda pushed by those with control of the mass media outlets and the universal “Christian” churches, is not for everyone, everywhere.
The Bible message is for the “house of Israel.” Jesus Christ plainly told the disciples:
…..You should not depart into the way of the heathens, and you should not enter into a city of Samaritans. 6 But rather you must go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
Paul did just that. His missionary journeys were all to those of the house of Israel. James addressed his epistle to the “twelve tribes which are scattered abroad.”
27 Then responding Petros said to Him: “Look, we have left everything and have followed You! What then is there for us?” 28 And Yahshua said to them: “Truly I say to you that you are those who shall be following Me in the regeneration, when the Son of Man shall sit upon the throne of His honor, and you also shall sit upon twelve thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel!
New Jerusalem will have a “wall great and high” and twelve gates and at the gates twelve angels [to guard the gates] and “names written on the gates which are the twelve tribes of the children of Israel.”
From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible is about the twelve tribes of the children of Israel.
