Why And For Who Did Christ Come?

We have all been told by Christian preachers that Jesus Christ came for the forgiveness of sin for all the people of the world but is this statement true. In Matthew chapter 15 verse 24 Christ himself tells us who he came for.

Verse 24: “But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

Christ statement in verse 24 was his answer to a Canaanite woman who is asking for mercy from him to heal her daughter. He goes on in Verse 26 comparing her request to one taking food from one's hungry children and instead giving it to dogs.

In contrast to the story about the Canaanite woman and Christ being reluctant to help her, lets read Matthew chapter 8 verses 5-7 where Jesus is more than happy to help a Roman centurion.

Verse 5: “And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him.”

Verse 6: “And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.”

Verse 7: “And Jesus saith to him, I will come and heal him.”

Matthew chapter 13 verses 10-16 describes Christ parable of the sower, and he makes it clear to his disciples that his ministry is not for everyone.

Verse 10: “And the disciples came, and said to Him, why speakest thou unto them in parables?”

Verse 11: “He answered and said unto them, because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.”

Verse 12: “For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.”

Verse 13: “Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.”

Verse 14: “And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, by hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see and shall not perceive.”

Verse 15: “For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at anytime they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.”

Verse 16: “But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.”

If Jesus wanted to plainly preach to all the people in the crowd so they would clearly understand his words he would have done so, but he did not. Jesus is basically telling his disciples that there are people in the crowd that he does not want to be able to comprehend his message. Because his message is not for everyone and he does not want them to be converted and he does not want to heal them.

Christ makes it clear he was sent but to the lost tribes of Israel only, and Christ obviously believed the centurion to be of the lost tribes of Israel.

It is also obvious that Christ knew that the Canaanite woman is not of the tribes of Israel.

The scriptures tell us that Christ came to fulfill his Fathers promise to redeem his people Israel, to pay the penalty for their sins. The scriptures also tell us that Israel would migrate to the north, south, east, and west.

These are the lost tribes of Israel for which Christ came to find and redeem. These tribes of Israel that had migrated around the world were not lost as if being lost in the wilderness or lost in a desert. They were lost in the sense of losing one’s identity.

Hosea chapter 1 verse 10: “Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.”

Today we are told that God has cast off his people Israel, except the Jews/Judah, which is but one of the twelve tribes of Israel, and through Grace has extended all of his wonderful promises to the Gentiles. Remember that the Jews that believed on Jesus were of the tribe of Judah, and the Jews that rejected Jesus are of the seed of Satan.

Now the word Gentile in the Strong's Concordance Greek dictionary is #1484 and has different meanings, a race, a tribe, a nation, or people.

The correct definition of the word Gentile is tribe or nation. These other people which most preachers mistakenly call Gentiles are in fact the other tribes/nations of Israel that have lost their identity as to who they truly are.

We just read an example of this in Matthew chapter 8 with Christ and the centurion. But still these Christian ministers reject the truth of the scriptures and falsely claim that only Judah of the twelve tribes of Israel remain and that God has opened his covenant and promises to include all the people of his creation, which is not true.

In Romans chapter 11 verses 1-2 Paul clearly tells us of the remnant of Israel.

Verse 1: “I say then, hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.”

Verse 2: “God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not that the scriptures saith of Elias? How he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying.”

Yes, Paul was indeed an Israelite of the seed of Abraham, he also states that he is of the tribe of Benjamin, one of the twelve tribes of Israel. Paul was also a Roman as we read in Acts chapter 22 verses 25-27.

Verse 25: “And as they bound him with thongs, Paul said unto the centurion that stood by, is it lawful for you to scourge a man that is a Roman, and uncondemned?”

Verse 26: “When the centurion heard that, he went and told the chief captain, saying, take heed what thou doest: for this man is a Roman.”

Verse 27: “Then the chief captain came, and said unto him, tell me, art thou a Roman? He said, yea.”

In Romans chapter 15 verse 8 Paul also states.

Verse 8: “Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers.”

But what promises, and made to whose fathers?

Let us find out in Romans chapter 9 verses 4-5.

Verse 4: “Who are Israelites, to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises.”

Verse 5: “Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed forever. Amen.”

From the beginning of the bible in Genesis to the book of Revelation Christ’s only concern was that of the twelve tribes of Israel. Revelation chapter 7 speaks to the end times and covers the sealing of God's servants by God's angels. Verse 4 describes who will be sealed by the angels.

Verse 4: “And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.”

In Revelation chapter 21, which covers the new Jerusalem, verse 12 describes the walls of the great holy city and its twelve gates.

Verse 12: “And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel.”

You must understand that the original twelve tribe nations of Israel broke up into two nations. Ten of the tribes kept the name Israel, while two of the tribes, Benjamin and Judah took the name Judah to represent both. From that time on they kept a separate existence.

Through time they slowly migrated into Europe and America and other lands around the world. This migration of the twelve tribes of Israel fulfills God's promise in Genesis 35 verse 11.

Verse 11: “And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins.” “Why and for who did Christ come?” Christ came to find and redeem all of the lost tribes of Israel, not just Judah, and especially not the Jew/seed of Satan impostors that tried to convince Christ that they were somehow connected to Israel.
