THE GREAT EXCHANGE
In the last installment of the Great Exchange,
we showed how the tactic of a Temporal Displacement was attempted
in the days of Ezekiel. The Jews who doubted the word Ezekiel brought,
concerning the arrival of the Saviour, said his prophecy was for the distant
“They of the house of Israel say,
The vision that he seeth is for many days to come, and he prophesieth of the
times that are far off” (Ezekiel 12:27).
The LORD inspired Ezekiel to tell the Judeans, who had lost
hope of the restoration of the kingdom of Israel, that God was indeed going to
keep His promise by sending the Redeemer – “and the word which I
have spoken shall be done, saith the LORD God” (Ezekiel 12:28).
The reader will recall the technique of a Temporal
Displacement is the phenomenon in which the Spirit of the Age moves
false prophets to interpret a Scriptural text as taking place in a time period
that is inaccurate.
The by-product of such an attempted timeshift allows the
Spirit of Deception -- which we have repeatedly demonstrated is related to the
Spirit imaged as the False Prophet in Revelation – to obscure the
true identities of the parties being described in the prophecy itself.
As Ezekiel ministered during the captivity of
the Jews who were taken by the Babylonian Empire, the attempt on the part of
the enslaved Jews to claim their prophesied release was in the distant future,
actually has a New Testament corollary.
After the Saviour’s mission of redemption was
completed with the Life, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, instead of
denying the LORD would yet keep His promise, the Jews denied the LORD had
already kept His promise through Jesus Christ.
The Apostle Peter, as well as the Apostle
John, both addressed those who denied that Jesus was the
“[They said] Where is the
promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue
as they were from the beginning of the creation” (II Peter 3:4).
Although this verse is commonly said to apply to our time,
this is actually yet another instance of the concept of Temporal
Displacement, as the false prophets seek to place the time of the
“scoffers” shortly before the fictional “rapture.”
We are told these mockers will laugh at those who still have
faith that Christ will return, after so long. However, the internal evidence in
the Apostle Peter’s second letter tells us he was actually referring to
his own time.
Peter mentions this is his “second epistle,”
even as he notes that in his first letter (as well as the second), he intended
to “stir up” the believers’ memory
(“remembrance”) of why they were certain that JESUS is indeed the
The idea that he is going to remind the reader of the
primary reason for their belief that Jesus is the Saviour is reaffirmed more
than once – which tells us he was concerned the scorn of the scoffers was
a threat to the believers in his time.
“Wherefore I will not be negligent
to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be
established in the present truth” (II Peter 1:12).
He proceeds to again remind the flock of the words of the
Old Testament prophets, which are the primary proof that Jesus is indeed the
“Be mindful of the words which were
spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles
of the Lord and Saviour” (II Peter 3:2).
Peter had previously stated that although the disciples of
Christ had seen Jesus transfigured on the mountain with their own eyes (II
Peter 1:16), and heard the “voice which came from heaven” (II
Peter 1:18) with their own ears, the fact that Jesus fulfilled the promises
of God articulated in the prophets was even more trustworthy.
“[Although we] were
eyewitnesses of his majesty…We have also a more sure word
of prophecy” (II Peter 2:16, 19).
This emphasis on the prophecies fulfilled by Jesus is
precisely what the Apostle John writes about in his letters.
This point is frequently missed when we read the little
letters of I, II, and III John, as most people tend to focus on the verses
about “antichrist.” But Peter’s point that the fact that
Jesus fulfilled the words of the Old Covenant prophets is crucial, as he used
it to defend the Gospel (and the flock the LORD entrusted him with), from the
“scoffers” that had sought to turn the believers away from the
When John wrote his first letter, the
situation was the same as it was when Peter wrote his letters.
The Gospel was under attack, and it was largely from the Jews who claimed that
Jesus was not the prophesied Saviour.
When the disciples of Christ told the people that Christ was
to return in judgment, many assumed they were speaking of an event that would
soon occur -- even though there was no such instruction in the LORD’s
parting statements. Thus, when those who rejected the Gospel mocked the LORD by
saying “Where is the promise of his coming?” (II Peter 3:4),
they were reacting to the faulty expectation.
This was the same type of resistance John was addressing.
The fact that Peter’s statement about the scoffers was intended for the
enemies of the Gospel in his time is confirmed by John’s
As the people had erroneously developed the tradition of a
future, final Antichrist – when there is no Scripture
whatsoever to support the belief – the expectation was related to
John’s reproof of the believers who were being seduced by those who had
left the fellowship of the faith.
“As ye have heard that antichrist
shall come, even now are there many antichrists” (I John
This statement equivocates Peter’s
“scoffers” with John’s “many antichrists.” Thus,
because the skeptics sought to turn the believers away from the truth they had
received, John took the opportunity to characterize these enemies of the Gospel
“Who is a liar but he that denieth
Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist“ (I John 2:22).
There is even more resonance between Peter and John’s
letters. After accurately labeling those who rejected Christ as
“antichrists,” John went on to provide internal evidence that the
opposition to Christ came largely from Jewish circles.
This identification is established by the fact that the
“antichrists” John was referring to sought to say the Jewish people
were still under the Old Covenant, because as they did not believe that
Jesus was the Saviour, they claimed they still had a relationship with God the
Father through the Old Covenant. In other words, they claimed that nothing had
changed for them.
“Ever since the fathers fell
asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of
the creation” (II Peter 3:4).
If you think about it, the idea of the
“scoffers” – who are mentioned in this very same verse
– showing up in our time, is inconsistent as modern Jewish people could
hardly say “all things continue” without change since Israel was
completely destroyed as a nation, and the Jewish people were scattered among
the nations in an unprecedented fashion.
Because of this perspective, just like Peter, John was
reaffirming the reasons the converts had turned to Christ in the first place.
Furthermore, he was correcting the assertions of those who said they could have
a relationship with the Father without accepting the Son.
“He that hath not the Son hath not
life” (I John 5:12).
Moreover, John wrote that anyone that did not believe God
had sent His only begotten Son to redeem Israel, was calling God a liar.
“He that believeth not God hath
made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his
Son” (I John 5:10).
This is precisely the point that Peter made when he said the
fact that Jesus fulfilled the ancient prophecies with His Life,
Death, and Resurrection was even more powerful proof than what the disciples
had seen and heard with their own eyes and ears.
“For we have not followed cunningly
devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord
Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. We have also the more
sure word of prophecy” (II Peter 1:16,19).
The “record that God gave of his Son” referred
to by John was clearly the prophetic words of the multiple
prophets of Israel, who provided the information as to how Israel could
recognize their Saviour when He arrived.
“For [Gentiles] have
compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my
hands and my feet” (Psalm 22:16, written centuries before Crucifixion
Many Christians, swayed by the unscriptural rotating
salvation posited by the Rapture Cult -- which tells us the flesh and
blood Jewish people are still chosen by God, when the Christians are now the
real Jews -- refuse to recognize John’s statements which obviously equivocate
the “many antichrists” he referred to as the flesh and blood,
Christ rejecting Jewish people.
Yet his Scriptural statements are point blank, and crystal
“For many deceivers are entered
into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is
a deceiver and an antichrist” (II John 1:7).
The book of Acts documents the circumstances of the history
of the Apostles Peter and John, so there is no
doubt that it was the Jewish establishment in Jerusalem which opposed every move
of the disciples after Christ’s ascension to the Father.
Peter and John, the same two disciples writing about the
“many antichrists,” were the very same vessels used by the LORD for
the first Apostolic miracle.
“Now Peter and John
went up together into the temple, at the hour of prayer…and a certain man
lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily” (Acts
Peter turned to the lame man and healed him through the
power of the LORD.
“And as the lame man which was
healed held Peter and John, all the people ran
together unto them…greatly wondering” (Acts 3:11).
The Jewish priesthood came upon them and arrested them. Thus
Peter and John, who both wrote of the opposition to the Gospel by the
“scoffers,” were subsequently beaten by the Jewish priesthood for
preaching the truth of Jesus Christ.
“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter
and John…they conferred among themselves [and said]
that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that
they speak henceforth to no man in this name” (Acts 4:13, 15, 17).
As the book of Acts documents, when the disciples continued
to preach in the name of Jesus, the priests issued warrants, and
approved of the murder of the Christians they arrested, so there is certainty
concerning the identity of the “many antichrists” who opposed the
Apostolic preaching of the Saviour.
“And they stoned Stephen, calling
upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. And Saul [the Pharisee]
was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution
against the church which was at Jerusalem” (Acts 7:59, 8:1).
The fact that the statements mentioned in the New Testament
letters of Peter and John speak of their time,
does not mean there are no future prophecies – as the Amillennialists say
(those who erroneously say we are now in the Millennial reign of Christ), but
that subject will have to wait for another installment of The Great

However, the adversary has already sown tares in this
vineyard (II Thessalonians 2:7), and we choose not to provide the
