John 3:16 Did Christ mean the Whole world?

Updated on December 27, 2014

The World

Do You Understand John 3:16?

Everyone thinks that John 3:16 says that Christ came to die for the whole human race.

I'm here to show you he didn't.

Let's get some scriptures that contradict the belief that Christ came for humanity.

Luke 1:68 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,

-God of ISRAEL sent Christ to redeem his people (Israel)

John 17:9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

- Christ prayed for them (ISRAEL), and we just read in luke 1:68 who God gave to Christ, his people (ISRAEL)

James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

-Wow, The bible says if your a friend of the world your God's enemy (so much for world peace -COUGH-)

1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

WOAH! Bible says we're not supposed to LOVE the WORLD. Now I'm confused. I thought Christ died for the world?

Matthew 15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

-Christ once again says he's ONLY been SENT for the lost sheep of the HOUSE of ISRAEL

Let's go to the Old Testament real quick.

Isaiah 40:15 Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.

16 And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering.

17 All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.

-God just said the NATIONS are LESS then NOTHING!

Define:Vanity-something worthless, trivial, or pointless.

Wow, but didn't you send your son to die for the world, if the nations are worthless, why send your son to die for them?

My head hurts there is too much contradiction! Or is there?


Christ Only Came for Israel (Negro's Latinos ' Indians)

You can choose to do one of two things. Keep reading and then look at this article, or read the article first so you can come back and fully understand this article.

The first thing you must understand that the true Israelites are the so-called blacks, hispanics, Natives.

http://theanalyzer.hubpages.com/hub/The-so-called-Negroe-is-not-African

Who was Christ Speaking to in John chapter 3?

The first thing you must understand to understand John 3:16 is who Christ is speaking to in John chapter 3?

John 3:There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:

2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

So Christ is talking to Nicodemus, an Israelite, a Pharasee, a leader of the Jews, a black man.

So now let's get to verse 14

Moses, The Serpent and Christ

In order to understand the conversation Christ is having with Nicodemus and what Chrsit is talking about in verse 16 one must understand verse 14.

John 3:14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life

Hmm... Serpent in the wilderness, Moses lifted up a snake? Just like Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness for Israel so is Christ gonna be raised up for Israel.

What is he talking about?

Numbers 21:6 And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died.

So Israel spoke againts God and the Most High sent poisonous snakes to bite them 9Now here is a key point , much od ISRAEL died. This is important because there are dumb doctrines out there that teach that it was a mix multitude. No it wasn't)

7 Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee; pray unto the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people.

8 And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.

(Moses made a brass Snake and put it on a pole )

9 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

This is important because this says ANY MAN that was bitten and he looked at the pole would live, but does that mean the chinese man could've lived? NO!

only the ISRAELITES got bit, they're the only ones who needed saving! So what's this talk about mixed multitude, no other nations were in the equation!

Now let's go to John 3:16 now that you have the background thought.

John 3:16 "For God so Loved the World"

John 3:16 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.

Now before we break this down, let's see how the bible says we're supposed to break it down.

Isaiah 28:10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

So the only way to understand the bible is to decode on verse with another,

Let's begin:

"God"-Luke 1:68

John 3:16 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.

First we want to establish what god this is, who's god? There are many made up gods. Let's see what god the bible says this is.

"God"- Luke 1:68 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,

So this is the God of ISRAEL, and it's telling you right there already that he's only redeeming HIS PEOPLE, ISRAELITES.

Next:

"Loved"- Deuteronomy 7:6-8

John 3:16 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.

Hmm, theres the word "LOVED" which is past tense, I wonder who the bible says the God of ISRAEL, always LOVED.

Deuteronomy 7:6 For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

7 The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:

8 But because the Lord ------loved------you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

Wow God has always loved ISRAEL

Next:

"WORLD"- Isaiah 45:17/John 18:20

John 3:16 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.

Now let's examine the dictionary definition of WORLD

and then we'll see what the bible says the World is.

"World":

  • The earth, together with all of its countries, peoples, and natural features
    • - he was doing his bit to save the world
  • All of the people, societies, and institutions on the earth
    • - world affairs
  • Denoting one of the most important or influential people or things of its class
    • - they had been brought up to regard France as a world power
  • Another planet like the earth
    • - the possibility of life on other worlds
  • The material universe or all that exists; everything
  • A part or aspect of human life or of the natural features of the earth, in particular
  • A region or group of countries
    • - the English-speaking world
  • A period of history
    • - the ancient world
  • A group of living things
    • - the animal world
  • The people, places, and activities to do with a particular thing
    • - they were a legend in the world of British theater
  • Human and social interaction
    • - he has almost completely withdrawn from the world
    • - how inexperienced she is in the ways of the world
  • Average, respectable, or fashionable people or their customs or opinions
  • A person's life and activities
    • - he felt his whole world had collapsed
  • Everything that exists outside oneself
  • A stage of human life, either mortal or after death
    • - in this world and the next
  • Secular interests and affairs
    • - parents are not viewed as the primary educators of their own children, either in theworldor in the church

    That's a load of definitions if you ask me

    But let's see what the bible says and which one of these definitions pertain to the bible

    Isaiah 45:17 But Israel shall be saved in the Lord with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded ===WORLD=== without end.

    Wow, you know what's heavy?

    In the Old Testament it's letting you know who was already predestine to be saved!

    And it calls Israel his WORLD

    Don't believe in the Old Testament? Don't worry, the bible has it covered. Let's see what the Messaiah himself said.

    John 18:20 Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the ===WORLD===; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.

    Once again he's saying the Israelites are his World because how is he teaching the whole PLANET if he ONLY taught in temples where ONLY JEWS go to?

"Whosoever" Acts 2:21-22

John 3:16 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.

Now everyone gets stuck on this word. "Whosoever"

Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

22 =============Ye men of Israel,======= hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:

So after he said WHOSOEVER he calrified he was only talking to ISRAELITES!

Now you Understand John 3:16

So Christ only came for the Israelites.

John 3:16 in 10 Min or less

Israel United In Christ

      Gen. 22:18 and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed.

      Gen 12:3 and i will bless them that bless thee and curse them that curse thee: and in the shall all families of the earth be blessed.

      Galtions 3:8 and the scripture foreseeing that god would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, in thee shall all nations be blessed.

      Gen 18:18 Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?

      Gen 26:4And I will make your descendants to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto your descendants all these countries; and in your descendants shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;

      Acts 3:25 You are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in your descendants shall all the families of the earth be blessed.

      Isaiah 49:6 And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.

      60:3 And the Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.

      62:2 And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.

      66:19And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles.

      John 7:35 Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles?

      John 7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.

      I timothy 2:7 For this I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying) as a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.

      So in 1ST Timothy where Paul says he is a teacher of the gentiles makes me think that God sent him on that task and therefore does care about all nations that they shall be blessed through Abraham’s seed. Why would God bless us all if he only cares about Black people?

      And let’s take a close look at the parable of the Good Samaritan. The Samaritans were a group of Semitic peoples who were Jews that did not worship at the temple, they had different practices. Therefore Judea thought them to be heretical Jews and hated them. In the parable (Luke 10:30-37) A priest, A Levite pass without helping, which you would think they would since they are “righteous” in their positions at least but they do not help. But the hated Samaritan does. And he goes above and beyond the call because he treats his enemy as his brother, just as is the message of Jesus. So for you, you might want to imagine 2 of your Israel unite brothers passing you by on the side of the road and a Mormon Missionary aiding you to a hotel and cleaning your wounds and paying for your room. That might be a lesson for you to drop the zealous racism in favor of unconditional love of all people.

      Leave there your gift before the altar, and go your way; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. (Matthew 5:24) So in order for your prayers to be answered, for you to be blessed, you must forgive those you hate. The above is letting scripture speak for itself, not needing to break it down to suit your needs as you must do considering all modern scholars and theologians refute pretty much every hypothesis you’ve stated. But then maybe you’d do well to go and get an education from a Seminary or theological degree rather than peruse a website for everything you know. That’s like getting an education out of a Cracker Jack box.

      The Analyzer 4 years ago from Babylon The Great

      Time To Bring Out The Sword:

      LETS BEGIN IN THE VERSE BEFORE 18

      -Genesis 22:17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the seashore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

      -Lets get some precepts

      WHO ARE THE ENEMIES?

      WAIT! God said Abrahams Seed would POSSESS his ENEMIES

      -Psalms 83:Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.

      2 For, lo, thine ENEMIES make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

      3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.

      4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

      5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

      6 The tabernacles of EDOM-(CAUCASIANS), and the ISHMAELITES(ARABS); of MOAB-(CHINESE), and the HAGARENES-(MORE ARABS);

      7 GEBAL-(AFRICANS), and AMMON-(JAPANESE), and AMALEK(CAUCASIANS THAT SAY THEY ARE JEW-ISH); the PHILISTINES-(MORE AFRICANS) with the inhabitants of Tyre;

      8 ASSUR-(KURDS) also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.

      9 Do unto them as unto the MIDIANITES-(GENOCIDED BY ISRAEL); as to SISERA, as to JABIN, at the brook of Kison:

      10 Which perished at Endor: they became as DUNG for the earth.

      So wait, that's pretty much all mankind right there, so if the nations are blessed why is it that in genesis 22:17 the Most High promises Abraham that Israel would POSSESS them?

      Let's keep reading Genesis

      Genesis 22:18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

      LETS EXAMINE THE VERSE:

      IN thy SEED

      -In YOUR LINEAGE-BLOOD-CHILDREN-SPERM

      will ALL NATIONS be blessed.

      Why did it stress in ABRAHAMS lineage?

      Because the ISRAELITES would be in ALL NATIONS

      -Deuteronomy 28:64 And the Lord shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.

      65 And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the Lord shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:

      DID THE NEGRO AND NATIVE AND LATINO MAN GO INTO SLAVERY IN ALL NATIONS???

      YES THEY DID! EVERY NATION ON THE PLANET TOOK HAND IN THE SLAVE TRADE!

      Jeremiah 32:37 Behold, I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven them in mine anger, and in my fury, and in great wrath; and I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely:

      You see that? ISRAEL was scatter into ALL NATIONS, that's why it said IN YOUR SEED ABRAHAM, will all nations be blessed, BECAUSE ONLY THE ISRAELITES IN ALL NATIONS WILL BE BLESSED

      AS FOR THE GENTILES

      ZONDERVAN BIBLE DICTIONARY

      Gentiles(nation-people): USUALLY it means a non-Israelite people

      ...

      Gentiles USUALLY means other nations but theres many times where ISRAEL was called GENTILES

      -Isaiah 11:10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

      11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

      12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

      THE GENTILES ARE THE OUTCASTS OF ISRAEL

      We already established ISRAEL would be gathered from All NATIONS

      That's why it said IN THY SEED

      That's why it said SHALL HE GO AMONG THE GENTILES to teach the GENTILES

      Let's see who were the outcasts of Israel?

      Isaiah 7:7 Thus saith the Lord God, It shall not stand, neither shall it come to pass.

      8 For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin; and within threescore and five years shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people.

      9 And the head of Ephraim is Samaria, and the head of Samaria is Remaliah's son. If ye will not believe, surely ye shall not be established.

      THE NORTHERN KINGDOM OF ISRAEL WAS CAST OUT! THE SAMARITAN WOMAN WAS AN ISRAELITE!

      That's why Christ gave the Parable about the Samaritans, they are Israelites!

      What is loving thy neighbour?

      Leviticus 19:17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.

      18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the Lord.

      So loving your neighbour is REBUKING(correcting) your brother, and your neighbor is who? (THE CHILDREN OF THY PEOPLE)

      So what enemy was Christ talking about? The enemies among your own people, where can we see that in the bible?

      -1 samuel 18:29 And Saul was yet the more afraid of David; and Saul became David's enemy continually.

      so King SAUL was Davids ENEMY but David loved Saul, that's loving your NEIGHBOR

      More PROOF that whenever the BIBLE mentions "GENTILES" being saved its talking about OUTCAST ISRAELITES:

      1 Corinthians 12:2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.

      So how were they gentiles? It tells you right there, they were worshipping other gods, if this was really another nation how the heck? How can you "Use to be chinese" you can't change your race!

      That makes no sense at all, "You used to be black, you used to be white"

      I guess Paul magically was changing peoples races right?

      Let's see what Paul was really talking about

      Romans 9:24 Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?

      25 As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved.

      26 And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.

      What is Paul making referance to?

      Hosea 1:8 Now when she had weaned Loruhamah, she conceived, and bare a son.

      9 Then said God, Call his name Loammi: for ye are not my people, and I will not be your God.

      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.

      11 Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel.

      You see that? God had CAST OUT CERTAIN ISRAELITE TRIBES!

      What happened? They were nicknamed GENTILES! Because they were following after the customs of the Nations.

      Simpletons man, your So-Called Scholars are wicked and Evil as hell.

      You obviously didn't read everything I wrote, I already destroyed your blasphemies with the scriptures,

      The Samaritan is an Israelite of the tribe of Ephraim which I already proved. You're simple as hell your obviously not an Israelite

      I aint gonna cast my pearls to swine, and read out of the bible dictionary? I ALREADY DID and i put the definition up there and proved with the scriptures that outcast Israelites were also called Gentiles, so you can get out of here with that garbage we already established how you love God BY KEEPING HIS COMMANDMENTS 1 JOHN 5:3

      Your neighbor are only the children of your own people Leviticus 19:17,18

      No more comments for you man you're reprobate I already abolished your repeating yourself you have no more leg to stand on. HA!

      Jesus Christ's blood brought Jew and Gentile (regardless of race or nationality) into a right relationship with God.

      Revelation 5:9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.

      Read Acts chapter 2, there were devout JEWS coming FROM every nation under heaven, so Michele, study more , you don't know what you're talking about, that's what Rev 5:9 is talking about being redeemed, and the spiritual mand judgeth all things, chew on that.
