THE GREAT EXCHANGE
In The Great Exchange, we’ve sought to
show how the LORD instructed Israel that if they obey and honour Him, He will
bless the nation abundantly.
“If ye walk in my statutes, and
keep my commandments, and do them; Then I will give you rain in due season, and
the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their
“And your threshing shall reach
unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye
shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely” (Leviticus
This is a classic example of what are sometimes called Conditional
Promises, or the If/Then principle. This is a very
rudimentary manifestation of an exchange -- If you do
something I specify, then I will do what I am now promising.
The list of benefits continues in this passage, as the LORD
promised Israel they would be unbeatable in battle, He would give
them peace, and they would live in great joy as He would set His tabernacle
“And I will walk among you, and
will be your God, and ye shall be my people” (Leviticus 26:12).
In short, after having demonstrated His great power and
divine abilities in the Passover and the Exodus accounts, God
promises supernatural blessings to Israel, if they honour Him as the
LORD who loves them. This is The Great Exchange between God and
the people He has chosen to perform His magnificent program.
Obviously, the very nature of deity allows the LORD to see
the fate of the entire world, and what occurs over the millennia, in an
instant. God has created everything and, as we owe our very existence to Him,
the LORD of all is worthy of our praise and adoration.
Since the Father already knows just how humankind will fare
right up to the last day, our perception of His plan to redeem His fallen
creation should be based on the record that He has provided – the Holy
Just like any errant child who has rejected instruction
needs correction, God’s loving nature motivates Him to alter the
misbehavior of those He has created. Moreover, because this is not a simple
matter of chastising a pet, or a human father responding to His child’s
juvenile infractions, it is incumbent on us to recognize that His interactions
with us are sacred, and not to be taken lightly.
As the LORD initiated the early stages of drawing rebellious
man back into fellowship with Him, we see He immediately establishes that this
is a divine intervention, and He is not to be trifled with. For example, when Moses
is exploring on the mountain where he was tending flocks for his father in law,
when he first encounters the angel of the LORD, God will expediently inform him
that a sacred encounter is underway.
“And the angel of the Lord
appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked,
and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.”
“And Moses said, I will now turn
aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt” (Exodus
Having revealed His presence to Moses, the first thing the
LORD does once the interaction commences, is to establish the fact that there
is a separation between God and man, and Moses must not approach Him
until Moses meets His conditions.
“And when the Lord saw that he
turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and
said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I”
“And he said, Draw not [near
here]: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place wherein
thou standest is holy ground” (Exodus 3:4, 5)
In the narrative that follows, it is clear that this is
indeed God, who is directly communicating with Moses. This is evident because
the LORD speaks in the first person, specifically stating that He is God.
“I am the God of Abraham, the God
of Isaac, and the God of Jacob” (Exodus 3:6).
Thus, this portion of the holy text also establishes the
fact that when “the angel of the LORD” (Exodus 3:2) is
present, we are not seeing a personality which is distinct from God, but in a
mystical way, it is God Himself.
The Word of God is not going to reveal the fact that JESUS CHRIST is present in
this interaction until the New Covenant is established – but clearly
there is a great mystery in how the presence of God is projected in “the
angel of the LORD.”
About 16 centuries after this encounter between God and
Moses, the book of The Acts of the Apostles elaborates on it.
This is a particularly poignant portion of the book as it recounts the words of
young Stephen, who was connecting Jesus Christ to God, as he was
being assailed by the Jewish priesthood.
In what is now a classic summarization of Israel’s Old
Covenant relationship to God, Stephen describes how the LORD declared Himself
to Moses in the book of Exodus.
Stephen’s sermon offers a parallel between the Christ
rejecting Jewish priesthood, and the Israelites who rejected Moses –
simultaneously indicating a parallel between Moses and Jesus.
“This Moses, whom they refused,
saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge? The same did God send to be a ruler
and a deliverer by the hand of the angel which appeared to him in
the bush” (Acts 7:35).
Indeed, Stephen’s comparison of Israel’s
apostasy under the Old Covenant of Moses, and their rejection of the Saviour,
was laced with indignation:
“Ye stiffnecked and
uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your
fathers did, so do ye. Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted?
And they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of
whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers” (Acts 7:51, 52).
Furthermore, in spite of the modern Rapture Cult
apostasy which erroneously seeks to separate the identity of the church from
Israel, Stephen’s rehearsal of the matter coherently connects the
Christian body with the assembly of Israel in the wilderness.
“This is that Moses,
which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise
up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear”
“This is he, that was in the
church in the wilderness with the angel which spoke to him in the mount
Sina, and with our fathers” (Acts 7:37, 38).
There is a further irony in this passage, as the Jewish
opposition which is going to kill Stephen when he concludes the sermon, is
particularly inflamed when the young firebrand preacher says he sees
Jesus in glory.
The deity of Christ is clearly affirmed, as the vicious
priests maul Stephen; and in their blind rage, they actually chew on his flesh
with their teeth.
“When they heard these things, they
were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth. But he, being
full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of
God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God” (Acts
The inference in the young martyr’s presentation
subtly connects the “angel of the LORD,” who was present at the
calling of Moses, and his assertion that Jesus is now at the right hand of the
The heart of the Israelite religion was the release from
slavery in the Exodus from Egypt, and the focal point of that
liberation from their bondage is seen in the plagues sent from God, which were
delivered at the hand of Moses.
Moreover, the priests who surrounded Stephen were certainly
aware of Christ’s claim of divinity, which was directly connected to the
episode on the holy mountain of Moses. In that crucial statement on the
mountain, when Moses asked the LORD who he should say sent him to
announce the emancipation of Israel from the Egyptian oppression, the
“angel of the LORD” issued the now familiar statement of divinity:
“And God said unto Moses, I
am that I am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of
Israel, I am hath sent me unto you” (Exodus 3:14).
In Stephen’s time, everyone in the two Jewish sects of
the Pharisees and the Sadducees was still incensed at the statement of Jesus,
when He connected Himself to this astonishing record. When Jesus was arrested,
the high priest of the religious council called the Sanhedrin demanded He tell
them if He was the Christ.
“The high priest asked him, and
said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed? And Jesus said, I
am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power,
and coming in the clouds of heaven” (Mark 14:62).
The Jewish leaders were obviously infuriated as Jesus
directly asserted His divine identity as the only begotten Son of God.
“Then the high priest rent his
clothes, and saith, What need we any further witnesses? Ye have heard the blasphemy:
what think ye? And they all condemned him to be guilty of death” (Mark
Thus, it was no less offensive to the Jews when Stephen,
bloodied and bruised from the rabid religionist’s assault, said he saw
the heavens opened, and JESUS
standing at the right hand of God. After the priests were so overwhelmed with hatred
that they attacked Stephen like wild animals, they drew him to the edge of the
city, where they stoned him to death.
Just as we have previously shown in the Spiritual formula of
the shadow and the substance, the earthly
murder of Stephen triggered an enormous change in the heavenlies,
but that account will have to wait for another installment of The Great

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 weekly news synopsis summarizing what has
occurred each week. In addition to this, we produce 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.
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.
However, the adversary has already sown tares in this
vineyard, and we choose not to provide the website links with the video
elaborating on the present prophecy writing 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. We do not want to “cast [our] pearls before
swine” (Matthew 7:6). 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).
