THE GREAT EXCHANGE
When the false prophets tell us the passage we've been examining in Ezekiel (concerning Gog and Magog) is in the modern period, there is evidence which can convincingly show an association between the names listed, and contemporary nations which show hostility towards the tiny country called "Israel."
In our last few chapters of The Great Exchange, we've shown conclusive Scriptural evidence indicating the chapters which precede the Gog/Magog chapters in Ezekiel - as well as parallel chapters in multiple Old Testament prophets - plainly indicate the Lord would regather Israel after their Babylonian captivity, and bless them in an extraordinary way.
The Scriptural data from the prophets points us to the astonishing blessings generated by the life giving power of the Son of God – who arrives precisely when the prophet Daniel said He would – in the days of the four Gentile kingdoms which were inaugurated by the Babylonian captivity of Jerusalem:
"In the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed" (Daniel 2:44).
As we've already shown, this is a conclusive indicator the return of the LORD's favor to Israel through the cross, is in view in the days which include the regathering of Israel in the time of Christ, as well as the Gog and Magog "invasion" of Jerusalem.
To put it another way, the shift of events in Ezekiel 38 and 39 towards recognition of a Spiritual version of the Gog and Magog war is consistent with the Scriptural narrative of the events leading up to the epic Spiritual battle.
The fact remains, however, that the identities described in the Gog and Magog text are eerily similar to political powers that have menaced the modern Jewish state in recent years – and we cannot afford to ignore this factor in accurately recognizing the principalities working behind the veil of physical existence.
The primary attraction to a "last days" identification of this sequence is the obvious association between the place-names in the text, and the current alignment of military powers now lined up against the Israeli state. In short, the fact that contemporary false prophets routinely identify "Gog" with Russia, and "Persia" with modern Iran (both of which presently pose a threat to the political nation of Israel), adds a great deal of credibility to the Temporal Dislocation being addressed.
These two contemporary powers have shown a marked hostility to the modern nation of Israel, lending a degree of logic to the false interpretive approach. The question then becomes, since one set of Scriptures points to an internal, Spiritual fulfillment of "Gog and Magog" as demonic entities fighting against the divine mission in the time of Christ, but the physical alignment of nations points to a modern fulfillment of Ezekiel 38 and 39, how do we explain the disparity?
The answer is related to understanding the Spiritual condition of the modern state of Israel.
When the Jewish people decisively rejected the life offered to them by Jesus Christ, they cannot be said to be a neutral vessel in the Spiritual alignment in the heavenlies.
Christian Media has been championing the Triuniverse perspective for many years, and this is the key to understanding the present conflict between the two prophetic approaches.
The "Triuniverse" worldview addresses the many Scriptures which divide all things between the three factions in the heavenly abode. In this understanding, we have Life, its opposite Death, and the "Hell/Paradise" that exists in the "Valley of Decision" (Joel 3:14) which is in between the two polarities.
Zechariah addresses this alignment the most succinctly.
"And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried"
"They shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God" (Zechariah 13:8, 9).
Since Christ equivocates with Life, the Spirit of Antichrist must equal Death, and Hell (or Paradise) is the turf which determines the path we are all traversing.
Under the Old Covenant, God (who is Life personified) appointed Israel as His mediator, to shine His "light" (read His righteousness) to the Gentiles.
"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).
This "middle ground" is described in the parable of the rich man in Hell, as he interacts with Abraham and Lazarus in comfort, in what is thought to be Paradise.
"There was a certain rich man…and in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom" (Luke 16:23).
As the parable details, there is a great gulf between them, so neither party can traverse to the other side. The point is, the metaphoric nature of "Hell" is distinctively separate from "Death" – and of course neither is related to Life.
The Scriptures utilize similitudes for these place/names, as Kill, Murder, Slaughter, Antichrist, and many more words equivocate with the Spirit of Death. In the same way, Sin, Torment, Pain, Scourging, Deceive, False Prophet, and other terms describing unsavory things, which are not fatal, address the Spirit of Hell.
These are Zechariah's "two parts" which will be cut off.
"And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire" (Revelation 20:14).
The "third part" which the LORD redeems and purifies is seen in Jerusalem, Life, Peace, Glory, Anointed, Salvation, Wonderful, and other similarly positive terms.
Because the Scriptures are allegorically describing a higher plane of existence, our probes are best served by recognizing the characteristics of these Spiritual factions (or even entities), as such things are beyond the scope of our understanding.
Further, the Scriptures periodically anthropomorphize these terms as if they have some form of personality. We have repeatedly noted the proper name of Death is the one who rides the Pale Horse in Revelation 6, even as Sin (a broadly used euphemism for Hell) is "at the door" and seeks to "rule" over Cain before he murders his brother (Genesis 4:7).
In previous work, we have noted how the entity identified as Hell (or Sin, Captivity, Torment, Deception, etc) is typically seen as a vehicle which delivers its prey to Death – and not the other way around.
For example, Proverbs tells us a fallen woman takes "steps" along the path of "hell" which lead "down to death" (Proverbs 5:5), even as Romans includes all three of Zechariah's "parts," when it tells us the recompense of Sin is Death:
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23).
There are many such examples.
Christian Media has diagrammed this triune architecture for many years, and the evidence shows it has been evident in the Scriptures during multiple eras. For instance, when the Northern tribes of Israel broke away from the dynasty of David, and decisively turned to Baal (even as Judaea waffled in her devotion to the LORD) we saw the power of Death overcame Samaria, even as Hell enveloped Jerusalem.
"Backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah…that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks. And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith the LORD" (Jeremiah 3:11, 9, 10).
We have also noted that when Judaea, inhabited by the Spirit of Hell as what was left of the LORD's mediator Israel (after the Assyrians fulfilled God's will and devastated the Northern tribes), interacted with the "not-chosen" Gentiles, the equation was realigned as the Gentiles continued to manifest the Spirit of Death, next to Judaea's version of Hell. This was the architecture in place when the Life in Jesus arrived.
Scriptural clues are embedded during the differing phases of Israel's existence, which help us to identify the factions. As just stated, in the time of Jesus, the Jews were inhabited by Hell, and the Gentiles were under the sway of Death, as evidenced by Christ's denunciation of the sect of the Pharisees:
"Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye compass sea and land to make one [convert], and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves" (Matthew 23:15).
Notice the very subtle reference to Zechariah's "two parts" in the "twofold" aspect of the above verse.
In this supernatural formation, we see the Gentiles in Christ's time are identified with Death, through the mention of crucifixion (which was a peculiarly Roman practice) – even as the places of Jewish worship are identified with the reference to scourging – another euphemism for Hell.
"Behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues" (Matthew 23:34).
The Jewish priesthood, enraged at the presence of Life in Jesus through the Spirit of Hell which inhabited them, pushed the Roman Pontius Pilate, to execute Him on their behalf. In this alignment, the Spirits driving the two factions were identified.
"For [Pilate] knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy [an attribute of Hell]. Then saith Pilate unto [Jesus], Speakest thou not unto me? Knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee?" (Mark 15:10, John 19:10).
As the Jews, enveloped by the Spirit of Hell, intensely pushed for Christ's Death, the Spirit of Life in Jesus, "turned the world upside down" (Acts 17:6), and the Spiritual re-alignment caused the roles to be reversed.
As Life entered into the Jews and Gentiles who trusted Christ, and the Jews who rejected Jesus repeatedly invoked the power of Death through their insistence on killing the LORD, the Spiritual power of Death migrated into the Jews who summoned it.
"But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Then answered all the people, and said, His [Death] be on us, and on our children" (Luke 23:21, Matthew 27:25).
Once again, we note the mystical twofold thread in the refrain Crucify him, crucify him. The Scriptural sequence shows the shift, as before the crucifixion, the Jews claimed they did not have the authority to execute, thereby identifying the Spirit of Hell that empowered them.
"It is not lawful for us to put any man to death" (John 18:31).
After the Romans had crucified Christ, and the Jews persecuted the Christians, they inexplicably murdered with impunity, indicating the power of Death now inhabited them.
"And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus receive my spirit" (Acts 7:59).
A few short years after that, Jerusalem and the Jewish state were conclusively destroyed; and a Spiritually driven cessation of Life continued until our time, when the Christ rejecting Jews, still in the sway of Death, healed the deadly wound Jerusalem experienced in 70 AD.
However, the Death of the state of Israel was not "healed" by the power of Life in Christ, as the Scriptures indicate a mysterious power materialized.
"And [the False Prophet] had power to give life…[and] cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed" (Revelation 13:15).
Once again, the entities involved are identified by the characteristics, as the net result is the power utilized brings about Death.
"By these…was the third part of men killed" (Revelation 9:18).
Since the resurrection of the Christ rejecting nation of Israel is empowered by the Spirit of Death (the same power which caused the nation to be destroyed in 70 AD), we should not be surprised that unclean Spirit (Matthew 12:43-45) has the ability to align the nations in a way that puts forth the deception that the people of "Israel" are actually the LORD's "chosen" -- when God has already "chosen" (John 15:19) the Christians to be "translated" (Colossians 1:13) into "the Israel of God" (Galatians 6:16), and decreed the people, and the Christ rejecting modern state, are now anchored in the power of Antichrist.

To Be Continued
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.
That video will be posted on our second channel on the Sunday Shift. We also publish a weekly news synopsis summarizing what has occurred each week.
This news is also posted on our news site, ChristianMediaDaily.com which has links to our various media outreaches, including our 24/7 video channel CMRI.tv (Christian Media Remnant of Israel).
In addition to this, twice a week (Wednesdays and Sundays), we publish a 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 - MSR), has even more prophetic projections concerning the amazing explosion of prophetic understanding which has occurred at the Christian Media ministry, and it includes the most recent information pertinent to the Remnant that are the Christian Medians.
That letter (the MSR) is reserved for those who help sustain the ministry even as visitors are welcome.
Further, we have 24/7 Radio Streams, as well as additional video materials online dealing with Health and Survival, as well as yet another regularly issued video which identifies specific False Prophets the believer should avoid.
Viewing of the online video we transmit on our three video channels 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 we do not want to "cast [our] pearls before swine" (Matthew 7:6). There are those who partake of the Spiritual blessings bestowed on us from the LORD, yet they feel no motivation to help us reach others with this eye-opening truth.
Such routinely seek to cleave to us with flatteries, thinking their agreement with the LORD's perspective equals support.
"Such as do wickedly against the covenant shall [be] corrupted by flatteries" (Daniel 11:32).
We've found the power company as well as our many Internet providers do not accept flatteries as payment!
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 send your name and POSTAL mailing address to RemnantOfIsrael13@Gmail.com, or call our voice mail at 541/899/8888 with the same information. -- and we'll send you the links to the multiple websites Christian Media operates -- which freely host extensive written prophetic material, multiple radio and television programs, and the video related to the above prophecy article.
If you have requested our Internet links, and still have not received them, if you send an email to the above Email address (RemnantOfIsrael13@gmail), we will confirm with you that the ministry email (usually 5 per week) have been sent, and the obstacle is usually YOUR Internet provider (the one you pay—not the free email firms like Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc – so they have YOU paying to be censored!) is blocking our bulk servers because they subscribe to lists provided by "anti-spam" organizations that tell your ISP who to block. Further, as many Internet Service Providers (ISP) illegally 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 so you can do something about it.
If you've already responded with 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.
