The Revolutionary Role Reversal
Once the LORD of glory moved the entire spectrum
of salvation into the realm of the Spirit, we recognize the identity of
“Israel” was translated into a Spiritual body. Thus, the only real
Jew (or Israelite), is one who has experienced the Spiritual rebirth which is
only available in Christ.
“For he is not a Jew, which is one
outwardly…in the flesh” (Romans 2:28).
In his magnificent teaching addressed to
the Christians who were of Gentile descent, the learned Apostle goes on to tell
the believers that those who are born again in the Spirit, are now the real
“But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and
circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter [of the
law]” (Romans 2:29).
Obviously, this turned everything
“upside down,” and is widely misunderstood to this very day.
“Surely your turning of things upside down shall be
esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made
it, He made me not? Or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had
no understanding?” (Isaiah 29:16).
The Scriptures further speak of events
which were to occur during the era of Spiritual salvation in Christ, as those
who were formerly chosen, based on their flesh and blood, invariably
sought to retain their special primacy.
“But the Jews which believed not, moved with
envy….[drew] certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These
that have turned the world upside down are come hither also” (Acts
Acts 17:5, 6).
As the LORD had warned that the coming
Messiah was to be the last chance for the salvation of Israel (Amos 8:2), the Apostle
Paul cited an ominous prophecy.
“Beware therefore, lest that come upon you, which is
spoken of in the prophets: Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish:
for I work a work in your day, a work which ye shall in no wise believe, though
a man declare it unto you” (Acts 13:40, 41).
Since Israel’s role
was always designed to mediate between God and the Gentiles, the Jews were
appointed to export the Light of God to the Gentiles who walked in darkness.
“Thou are my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be
glorified….I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles”
(Isaiah 49:3, 6).
Israel repeatedly disobeyed the plan of
the LORD, so God made a New Covenant between Himself and mankind, and drew the
Gentiles to Himself through the work of His only begotten Son:
“Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of
this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now
worketh in the children of disobedience” (Ephesians 2:2).
Since Paul repeatedly referenced disobedience
to the law, as enunciated in the Old Testament, His reference to the children
of disobedience must be applied to those who understood how the concept
of sin was related to disobedience to the LORD’s will – as revealed
to physical Israel in the Old Covenant.
“But to Israel he saith, All day long I have
stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying
people” (Romans 10:21).
In other words, to the Ephesians (who
were physical Gentiles), Paul states they were once identified with the Spirit
of Death, which we’ve already shown was associated with the not
chosen Gentiles – as opposed to the False Prophet/Spirit of
Hell which was found in the Jews under the Old Covenant.
“And you [Ephesians]…were dead in trespasses
and sins” (Ephesians 2:1).
However, Paul goes on to say that it is that
very Spirit of Death which “now” inhabits the
“children of disobedience” (Ephesians 2:2). Further, Paul goes on
to remind the Ephesians that they were “in time past” considered
Gentiles in the flesh, but now, through Jesus, they belong to a
Spiritual body which is chosen by God.
“But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were
far off are made [near to God] by the blood of Christ” (Ephesians
Mindful that he told the Romans that physical
Jews were no longer to be considered Jews, and the Ephesian Christians were
of a circumcision which “is that of the heart” (Romans 2:28), Paul
was careful to refer to the Christ rejecting Jews as “that which is
called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands” (Ephesians
Israel understood how they were
entrusted with the law, so their conformity to it was to shine as a light
unto the Gentiles.
”Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous
man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for
sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of
mothers, for manslayers” (I Timothy 1:9).
Instead of exporting the light
and life of God to the Gentiles through their adherence to the Old Covenant, Israel
reversed course, and imported the Death which was
inherent in the Gentiles. Noting how He had richly blessed Israel, and using
the great gifts of gold and silver He had given Israel as a metaphor of their chosen
people birthright, God likened their faithlessness to that of an adulterous
“Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my gold and of my
silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and
didst commit whoredom with them” (Ezekiel 16:17).
The reference to images
anticipates how it is the Spirit of the False Prophet (which
we’ve shown was in the Jews in the Old Testament), which is associated
with the creation of the Image of the Beast. Thus, a vivid allegorical
picture of an adulterous wife, turning away from her life with her godly
husband, comes into view.
“Moreover, thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters,
whom thou hast borne unto me, and these hast thou sacrificed unto them to be
devoured. Is this of thy whoredoms a small matter, that thou hast slain my
children, and delivered them to cause them to pass through the fire for
them?” (Ezekiel 16:20, 21).
As this lengthy cycle progresses, the
prophets clearly delineate it is the Gentile “lovers”
that Israel turned to, and since the Gentiles were not chosen
to mediate God’s life to the rest of the world, their not chosen
status represents the Death which eventually consumes the Hellish
harlotry which Israel pursued.
“Thou hast also committed fornication with the Egyptians…Thou
hast played the whore with the Assyrians, because thou was
insatiable…Behold, therefore I have stretched out my hand over thee, and
have diminished thine ordinary food, and delivered thee unto the will of them
that hate thee, the daughters of the Philistines, which are ashamed of
thy lewd way” (Ezekiel 16: 26, 28, 27).
As the Spirit of Hell
(read the False Prophet) in Jerusalem turns to the Death
in the Gentiles in pursuit of her fleshly pleasure, we see Israel exchanges
the Life of the LORD for the Death in the Gentiles, and is destroyed in the
“Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her
abominations. Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou
hast taken pleasure…And I will also give thee into their hand, and they
shall throw down thine eminent place, and shall break down thy high places: and
leave thee naked and bare. They shall also bring up a company against thee, and
they shall stone thee with stones, and thrust thee through with their
swords” (Ezekiel 16:2, 37, 39, 40).
This is obviously the precise event
which occurred as the Jewish priesthood (the False Prophet) turned to the
Romans (Antichrist) to rid themselves of the Life of JESUS CHRIST – to say nothing of the
fact that it was those very same Romans who ultimately destroyed Jerusalem.
But that is only half of the story.
As the true prophets of the LORD indicated, those who were not chosen
would become key components in the Revolutionary Role Reversal, in which
the LORD would reconstitute the house of Israel in the realm of the Spirit.
Writing to the Christians in Rome, the
Apostle Paul eloquently described how Spiritual Israel, comprised
of former physical Israelites and former physical Gentiles, would reverse roles
with those under the Old Covenant, and be born again as the people of the
“As he saith in Hosea, I will call them my people, which
were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come
to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people;
there shall they be called the children of the living God” (Romans 9:25,
The present writing has focused on the Revolutionary
Role Reversal at the cross, in which physical Israel, laden with the
Spirit of the False Prophet, was consumed by the Death
which inhabited the Gentiles. However, the second stage of the timeline, in
which Spiritual Israel (commonly called the church) recapitulates the identical
pattern, is now upon us. In the New Testament timeline, the harlotry of
Spiritual Israel is now apparent for all who have ears to hear. In this
process, the Christian church, now appointed to export the LORD’s
righteousness to the Spiritual Gentiles (comprised of the Christ rejecting
physical Jews and Christ rejecting physical Gentiles), repeats the ancient
apostasy and is importing the Antichrist Death now residing in
Just as ancient Israel imported the Spirit
of Death from the ancient Gentiles, Spiritual Israel is importing the Antichrist
Spirit from physical Israel, as the reliance on the letter of the law resurfaces
yet once more, fulfilling the prophecy of a last day’s Falling Away
from the truth. These two timelines are yet another
manifestation of the two parts which are cut off and die. In this
profound series of events, the third part – which is the
true Remnant of Israel – is obedient to the LORD’s directive
to come out of her, for her sins have reached unto heaven.
However, the particulars of how the same
prophecies are again being fulfilled in the second timeline, will have to wait
for another writing, as the present work on Sequencing Salvation: The
Revolutionary Role Reversal, has run its course.

Christian Media also has a regularly issued companion
letter commenting on the material seen in Part VII of SEQUENCING SALVATION:
THE REVOLUTIONARY ROLE REVERSAL, as well as other current topics
related to Bible Prophecy. The latest edition of that letter (labeled a COMMENTARY),
has even more prophetic information concerning issues of importance to our
generation. Further, Christian Media has an eye-opening online on-demand
video elaborating on the crucial facts seen in this article —
which also includes predictions concerning the immediate future. However, the
enemy has already sown tares in this vineyard, and we choose not to provide the
website links here, as those who think they’re doing God service are
tirelessly trying to excise the truth from the Internet.
Viewing of the online video on this subject is completely
free, 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 facts 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 take down our
websites. 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 wilderness 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
