It's time you knew what's really going on.

 And he is the propitiation for our sins:

and not for ours only,

but also for [the sins of] the whole world.

1John 2:2

Christ Died For ALL Men

 

In other writings I tried to illustrate the fact that only  the house of Israel is referred to as God's 'elect' in biblical text. Briefly, this means that the Israelites were set apart, 'chosen', to be a kingdom of priests whose burden it was to preserve & share God's commandments with all humanity.  Furthermore, being God's first born son the Israelites have been entitled to the double portion birthright as well as the kingship. It's critically important you understand, however, that what appears to be a blind privilege given to the first born is actually a role of grave responsibility for that son to care for the younger siblings that follow, especially in the case when the father of the household cannot be present.  Moreover, while the gift of redemption began with the tribe of Judah & then the rest of the house of Israel, it is NOT exclusive to any single nation.  God's plan has always been to establish a global family of many  sons:

 

For those whom he foreknew

he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son,

in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.

Romans 8:29

 

What follows are biblical scriptures that give further evidence of the universal love that was unreservedly offered to all of us by the Lamb of God through his crucifixion:

Titus 2:11

 

The Living God to his son:

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.

Isaiah 49:6

 

For those of you who have yet to read 'America: The New Jerusalem' I invite you to do so now.  It will explain the fulfillment of the double portion birthright passed to the tribe of Ephraim (& Manasseh) as well as the path of the eternal sceptre that belongs to Christ.
