The Revolutionary Role Reversal
In Part I of Sequencing
Salvation, we began to analyze the transition which occurred, as the
Spirit of Life in the LORD moved into those embracing Christ, at
the onset of the New Covenant. The Bible shows a momentous change occurred
at that time. To understand this, it’s instructive for us to realize
the New Testament reveals that this material world, consisting of Flesh and
Blood, is now referred to as a “shadow” -- whereas the
Spiritual architecture of the Kingdom of God in Christ, is the
In this regards, the writer of the book
of Hebrews advised the believers to patiently endure their earthly
“….knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a
better and an enduring substance” (Hebrews 10:34).
The very same writing had already stated
that the substance of the Kingdom of God, which was revealed in
Christ, was preceded by a shadow and, incredibly, we are told the
entire law of Moses, was part that shadow. Considering the fact the Ten
Commandments, and the hundreds of Old Testaments statutes were the centerpiece
of the Israelite’s very existence, it would be an understatement to note
how revolutionary this assertion actually is.
“For the law having a shadow of good things
to come, and not the very image of the things, can never [make perfect
those who obey it]" (Hebrews 10:1).
The substantive light of God contrasts
with the Spiritual darkness, which also has a shadow. This is seen when JESUS first went into the
land of Galilee of the Gentiles, and Matthew the disciple states this
fulfilled a prophecy of Isaiah. Referencing the land beyond the Jordan
River, which was in “Galilee of the Gentiles” (Isaiah 9:1), Matthew
tells us the following:
“The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to
them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is
sprung up” (Matthew 4:16).
As the land of Galilee receives daylight
(as well as night) just like any other geographical locale, it can hardly be
said the “darkness” which surrounded them was due to a lack of
sunshine. Indeed, the text from Isaiah states the people
“walked” in a darkness related to “the shadow
of death” (Isaiah 9:2). Since this very same prophet also identifies
“death” as an entity somehow capable of participating in a covenant,
we recognize it as a Spiritual “substance,” which can also generate
a “shadow” in the physical realm.
“Wherefore hear the word of the Lord, ye scornful men,
that rule this people which is in Jerusalem…ye have said, We have made a
covenant with death, and with hell are we at
agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come
unto us” (Isaiah 28:14, 15).
The New Testament furthers this
perception, by informing us the entity who is riding the allegorical Pale
Horse is actually named Death – and the anointed word
of God even capitalizes the word denoting its presence – an indication
the mysterious faction may actually be viewed as a specific Spirit:
“And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name
that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with
him” (Revelation 6:8).
Setting the presence of Hell
aside for a moment, we note this perception is not without precedence, as
Revelation also discloses information concerning the strange entity who is
enigmatically characterized as the Mother of Harlots – and she also has a
“And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery,
Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The
Earth” (Revelation 17:5).
In fact, since this Mystery Babylon –
obviously some kind of symbolic reference related to apostate religion –
also has harlot “daughters,” and the Scarlet coloured beast she
sits on is “full of names of blasphemy” (Revelation 17:3),
we are looking at multiple Spiritual identities. Further, since the Gospels tell
us about a possessed man who had so many devils they were named Legion,
in this study we are encountering clusters of entities (or even factions)
existing in the realm of the Spirit.
Years of research in the Scriptures indicates these may be
distilled down to two primary types which may be
identified by their attributes – and they are ultimately associated with
very same Death and Hell mentioned by Isaiah,
as participants in a covenant. Further, since God, who “the Spirit of
life” (Romans 8:2) makes a covenant with man, and we don’t see Him
physically, it follows that Death is also related to an unseen
In examining extreme Scriptural examples of historic evil
(in both testaments), looking within the physical realm to discern the
Spiritual characteristics, we find evidence of “Death” all over
the Scriptures. One of the now classic examples is found the triad seen in
Ahab, Jezebel, and Elijah.
“But there was none like unto Ahab, which did sell
himself to work wickedness in the sight of the LORD” (I Kings 21:25).
Simultaneously, as Jezebel was about to be
deposed, the king who destroyed her told one of her sons there would be no
peace in Israel as long as the vile queen lived.
“What peace, so long as the whoredoms of thy mother
Jezebel and her witchcrafts are so many?” (II Kings 9:22).
The symbiotic union of Ahab and Jezebel
is an earthly manifestation of the Spirits identified as Death
and Hell – and Elijah their enemy obviously
represents the LORD, righteous rule, or any one of dozens of positive Spiritual
similitudes. The primary story of the pernicious pair revolves around a vineyard
owned by Naboth, which Ahab desired. Naboth was a good man who
refused to sell it, as the vineyard was his family inheritance. Although as
king, Ahab could dispose of Naboth and seize the inheritance, he was afraid of
the consequences if he simply murdered the man. Conversely, Jezebel had no
qualms over committing murder, but as the queen, the power to kill
was only vested in the king.
Jezebel arranged a complex scheme, in which
she wrote letters in Ahab’s name and, using his authority, she framed
Naboth for blasphemy. After he was accused by two false witnesses
she had recruited, Naboth was executed – after which Ahab legally seized
the desired vineyard.
In the real life parable, Naboth the innocent represents JESUS CHRIST, the
blameless Son of God who refused to yield his birthright inheritance to Satan,
when the Devil sought to tempt Him.
“And [Satan] saith unto him, All these things will I give
thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me” (Matthew 4:9).
Ahab, as the king who was reluctant to
exercise his authority to inflict Death, is maneuvered into
acquiescing to the murder through the machinations of Jezebel. He
not only represents Death, he foreshadows Pontius Pilate,
the Gentile governor who is reluctant to order the Death of the
innocent Saviour. Jezebel, as the priestess of Baal, is the
religious schemer who desires the Death of the innocent Naboth.
She manifests the identity of Hell, where the inhabitants
continue in conscious torment after they have passed on.
In fact, the Gospels directly identify the Jewish priesthood
in the same role.
“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).
Just like Jezebel, the Jewish priesthood
greatly desired to kill the innocent Jesus Christ, but they were restrained
from doing so.
“The Jews therefore said unto [Pilate], It is not lawful
for us to put any man to death” (John 18:31).
Since the Jews represented the corrupted chosen,
even as Pontius Pilate the Roman ruler represented Death
as the “not chosen” Gentile governor, the reluctance
of Pilate to extinguish the life in Jesus Christ confirms the
“Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake
again to [the people]…I have found no cause of death in
him….But they cried [out for Death to come forth], saying, Crucify
him, crucify him” (Luke 23:20, 22, 21).
In Revelation, the allegorical serpents who
kill (representing Death), are visualized
with the authority to kill – but only at the time
“And the [angels of Death] were loosed, which were
prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay
the third part of men” (Revelation 9:15).
The analogies continue with varying vessels, but the same
Spiritual architecture. When Pilate learned JESUS was
associated with Galilee, still reluctant to order His execution, he sent the
LORD to Herod, because Galilee was included in the territory
administered by the reigning king of the Jews. As the religious priesthood
continued to push for Christ’s execution, Herod –
representing Hell – beat, mocked, and tormented Him.
At this point, Death and Hell were represented by Pilate
and Herod, so it’s not surprising to see the torment
which characterizes Hell, even as Herod unleashes
the Satanic power of Revelation’s allegorical “scorpions,” who
torment but cannot kill.
“And it was given that they should not
kill…but that they should be tormented” (Revelation 9:5).
After sending the LORD back to Pontius Pilate who
ultimately orders His crucifixion, we see a crucial change occurs, as
the vessel of Death (Pilate) symbiotically blends with the vessel
of Hell (Herod), even as the power of Life in JESUS CHRIST emerges in
His resurrection. With the Life of God flowing into Jews as well
as Gentiles forming the body of Christ, that which remains of the vessels
hosting Death and Hell draw closer together, as
they are about to reverse roles in the New Covenant era.
“And the same day, Pilate and Herod were made friends
together: for before they were at enmity between themselves” (Luke
