I'm not sure if I am describing this correct or not, but I want to take the text and "embed" it in to a design if that makes since. So basically there would be a cut out of that text so I can add it back in. If anyone would be kind enough to point me in the right direction. Thanks

You can outline the text to make it an object then use the shape builder tool to remove the letters from your background leaving holes where the text was - is that what you are after?

Instead of clicking through all those fiddly bits, you could also get Illy to do that for you: select all the red make compound path, select all black make compound path, select all, then Minus Front in Pathfinder.

I tired that, ended up having to hold down ALT and click each piece individually to remove it. It works but not the quickest way to go about doing it.
