At the Last Supper with his disciples, Jesus shared some awesome information that has escaped most of us.
Jesus told us in Matthew 15:24 that he was only sent unto the lost sheep of the House of Israel.
Therefore, we need to consider what actually occurred during the Last Supper.
We remember that Creator apparently became very angry at the Northern Tribes of Israel because they were living so wickedly.
He told them in Hosea 1:9 that they were not His people, and that He was not their God.
The covenant between the Northern Tribes of Israel and Creator was broken.
However, the covenant between Judah and Creator was not broken.
That was why Jesus was sent to repair only the covenant between the Northern Tribes and our heavenly Father.
He was sent for the remission of the sins of the House of Israel, i.
the Northern Tribes of Israel.
After Jesus shed his blood for the lost sheep of the House of Israel, the covenant was repaired and the Northern Tribes were again God's people.
At the Last Supper, Jesus broke the bread, blessed it, and told his disciples to eat of it, that it was his body.
The broken bread signified the broken covenant of the House of Israel.
When the disciples ate of it, they were symbolically one with Jesus and they were to start living as Jesus lived.
Then Jesus took the cup, and after giving thanks, passed it to his disciples.
He told them to drink of it for this was his blood of the new testament (repaired covenant) that was shed for the remission of sins of many.
Note Jesus did not say for the sins of everyone, only of many.
That was because his blood was shed only for the remission of the sins of the House of Israel in order to repair the covenant they had broken by living so wickedly.
This remission of sins was not for individual people, but for the House of Israel as a whole, for the Northern Tribes of Israel as a "people.
" Christianity apparently teaches that the remission of sins spoken of at the Last Supper was for Christians as individuals, and that by believing this they would inherit eternal life.
They have been taught wrongly.
Jesus taught that you gain eternal life in the presence of our heavenly Father when you love God the Father with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself, i.
unconditional love in your heart.
To "believe in Jesus" means to "live his teachings of unconditional love.
