THE GREAT EXCHANGE
One of the deeper subjects related to Bible Prophecy is how the LORD ordains the reversal of the various roles which are documented in the Scriptures. For example, the ultimate Role Reversal is seen when God chooses to pour His judgment on His beloved Son, when rebellious mankind is clearly the party that is worthy of His wrath.
Recognizing that the laws of the Old Covenant could only generate judgment (as man invariably erred in seeking to follow the rigid mandates the LORD decreed), God chose to condemn the sin which resides in flesh and blood mankind -- but He refrained from executing every person because His wrath was satisfied through the judgment that fell on the flesh and blood of JESUS as a substitute sacrifice.
“For what the law could not do, in that it [did not provide a permanent redemption because it] was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh” (Romans 8:3).
Obviously a complex stream of thought, the subject of substitutionary atonement can be distilled down to the concept wherein the entire creation is worthy of punishment for our collective infractions, but because THE LORD LOVES US, He has engineered a way for His righteous judgment to be satisfied, while preserving us from that judgment.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosever believeth in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:36).
While the formula for this Great Exchange is exceedingly simple, the mind of the creator who envisioned this spectacular process is far higher than our finite understanding can fully apprehend.
However, a complete recognition of the dynamics involved in the principles of redemption, as openly revealed in the Word of God, also provides us with illumination concerning the multitude of doctrines which confront contemporary believers.
In fact, as crucial aspects of the faith – such as the volatile subject of prophecy becomes more and more prevalent with each passing day – the revelation of the plan of God remains steadfast in the midst of massive false doctrine.
It is in a full understanding of how the Spiritual alignment was configured after the LORD’s astonishing entrance into human affairs through the Saviour, that we are able to continually follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Furthermore, when we recognize the goal of the Devil is to oppose the LORD’s magnificent plan for mankind’s redemption, we are in a far better position to accurately ascertain the events that are occurring all around us. Moreover, since the LORD has provided us with a script detailing the flow of all world history, a recognition of how the “powers of the heavens” (Matthew 24:20) were, are, and will be manifested in each generation, is of inestimable value.
In seeking to grasp the central issue of the Great Exchange that I’m addressing, a particular Scriptural thread of thought has proven to be very helpful in the past – so I’ll return to it.
In the creation account in Genesis, the LORD made everything, and after each stage in the creation account, the Word of God tells us “God saw that it was good.”
In fact, a subtle communiqué exists in the divinely inspired Word of God, as six times, immediately after each step of the creation, the text tells us “it was good” (Genesis 1:4,10,12,18,21,25).
The sixes are abundant as they signify the creation, but after His crowning achievement of creating mankind on the sixth day, the LORD added a modifier, as He said it was very good.
“And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day” (Genesis 1:31).
Clearly, as far back as the very first chapter of Genesis, the Word of God utilizes mathematical motifs to accentuate the verbal narrative. This continues all the way through the entire Bible.
Before moving back to our central theme of how the LORD engineered the Great Exchange in which He retrieved the creation which turned away from Him, another example of the divine precision in the Scriptures demands recognition.
At the sixth day when Adam was created, we find an example of the timeless nature of God and, instead of a mathematical pattern, a fascinating example of language emerges.
The name Adam is thought to mean ruddy, or even red – perhaps an allusion to the flesh and blood nature of the first man.
In fact, from the earliest time, names of individuals, as well as place-names were drawn from the circumstances of the time, or elements that were associated with that person.
Many examples of this are in Genesis, and they are abundantly seen in the Scriptures describing the life of Isaac, Abraham’s son, whose flocks were prospering in the land of the Philistines.
The king of the Philistines had recognized the LORD was with Isaac, who was the man to father Jacob, who later becomes known as Israel. The Philistine king, a man named Abimelech, wisely sought a covenant of peace with Isaac, who was continually growing in wealth, influence, and power.
“And [Abimelech] said, We saw certainly that the LORD was with thee: and we said, Let there be now an oath betwixt us, even betwixt us and thee…that thou wilt do us no hurt…thou art now the blessed of the LORD” (Genesis 26:28, 29).
This resulted in a feast of friendship and, that same day, Isaac’s servants came, bringing the good news that they had found water in a well they had been digging.
“And he called it Shebah: therefore the name of the city is Beer-Sheba unto this day” (Genesis 26:33).
The name Shebah actually means an oath, and the place-name Beer-Sheba means the well of the oath.
This naming convention is related to ancient colloquial and cultural expressions, and it is still prevalent in our time. For instance, I was surprised to see the phenomenon in the epic western film, Dances with Wolves. In the fictional account, the native American Indians had seen a lone cavalry soldier at his outpost dancing with a pet wolf – so that became the name the tribe used to describe the lone soldier – Dances With Wolves.
In the Genesis record, Adam’s third son (after the disgraced Cain murdered his brother Abel) was named Seth – a name derived from the word appointed, or put.
Seth’s son was Enos, which is variably rendered as mortality, or even a miserable man. Enos bare a son whose name was Cainan (sometime seen as Kenen) and it is related to the word lament.
Cainan’s son was Mahalaleel, utilizing one of the names of God with the El at the end (as in Elohim) – a name rendered as the Blessed God. His son Jared is related to descent, or descending, even as Jared’s son Enoch was said to be a teacher.
The aged Methusalah (Enoch’s son) is mystically thought to announce the coming judgment of the great flood, or some sort of harbinger of death. The legend had it that when he died, judgment would come. The name Methuselah can be rendered His Death Will Bring.
Methuselah’s son Lamech continues that thought as it means weary, and it speaks of the weariness man was experiencing. Lamech’s son was the famous character we know as Noah – and just about everybody knows that Noah means rest, or comfort.
Obviously, there was a major change in the world after the flood, so if we simply read the creation lineage from Adam to Noah, it actually forms a sentence.
Adam Appointed man to Mortality, Lamenting, the Blessed God, Will Come Down Teaching, His Death Will Bring, to the Weary, Comfort.
In spite of the fact the Holy Bible has many such features which show divinely imparted communication, we recognize there is a lethal deception that has misled the so called scholars of the Scriptures. The “experts” are now telling us the Word of God (starting with Genesis), was actually derived from supposedly earlier heathen Mesopotamian writings extolling the virtues of the deity known as Baal.
Many Christians are still unaware of the theological time bomb that has been ticking at the heart of the Holy Bible for over a century, as “Christian” seminarians, Bible College Professors, and a multitude of scholars, citing material from what we call the Baal Bible, are actually teaching that Moses plagiarized from these Occult documents!
In multiple books, DVD’s, and broadcasts, we have shown otherwise, but the attempt to exchange the truth of God for a lie, is divinely ordained, and it is directly related to the subject of the Great Exchange.
“Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts…who changed the truth of God into a lie” (Romans 1:24, 25).
As previously stated, when God engineered the stupendous Role Reversal in which He supernaturally retrieved fallen man, the adversary of our souls known as Satan sought to undo the magnificent Role Reversal through which the LORD redeemed us.
But just how this conflict has continued right up to the present day, will have to wait for our next installment of the Great Exchange.

Christian Media has an eye-opening, on-demand video elaborating on the crucial facts seen in the above article — which also includes predictions concerning the enormous turn of events associated with the present political tumult in America – especially with reference to the American recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of the political state known as Israel. We also publish a regularly issued companion letter commenting on the material seen in each chapter of THE GREAT EXCHANGE. The latest edition of that letter (entitled the Christian Median MINISTRY STATUS REPORT), has even more prophetic projections concerning the amazing explosion of prophetic understanding which has occurred at the Christian Media ministry.
However, the enemy has already sown tares in this vineyard, and we choose not to provide the website links to view the free video here, as those who think they’re doing God service are tirelessly trying to excise the truth from the Internet (John 16:2).
Viewing of the online video on this subject is completely free (as is the receipt of this weekly Communique), and we greatly desire as many as possible will see it (a new video will replace it in another week), but to examine this subject further, we ask for a green light from you to send you the link. Further, because there are many vested interests which are threatened by the content the Christian Media ministry provides, regular efforts are made to penetrate our ranks – including hacker attacks.
Incredibly, we’ve already proven that “Christian” parties have actually hired hackers to attack our websites (Galatians 4:29). Thus, we desire to weed out those who are insincere about further examinations of the truth of the Gospel, so we send the links to our Internet materials via surface mail.
As we move through the Spiritual wilderness behind the veil of this world, even our Internet domains are subject to be seized by the dark powers, so we urge all those who hear the voice of the LORD in these Communiques to seek the LORD while He may yet be found. As those who have inherited the light of God through Christ’s marvelous work,
“[We] must work the works of him that sent [us], while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work” (John 9:4).
To get our current Internet links, and receive full access to Christian Media materials, simply reply to this email with the word YES! in the subject line, and your name and postal mailing address in the body of the email, and we’ll send you the links to the multiple websites Christian Media operates -- which freely host extensive written prophetic material, multiple radio shows, and the video related to the above prophecy article.
Further, as many Internet Service Providers (ISP) censor Christian material, when we send prophecy information to those who love the truth, and it “bounces” back because you are being censored (and you don’t know it, because you never see what is being held back from being delivered to you), we will print it out and mail it to you via surface mail.
If you’ve already responded with a YES! and your name and mailing address after receiving a prior issue of this Internet periodical, you do not need to reply again, as the links we send you through surface mail provide you with an offline record on how to access all of our websites.
