THE GREAT EXCHANGE

Part V

 

In our last installment of The Great Exchange, we examined the concept of the Shadow and the Substance, in which the historical accounts affecting earthly Israel prophetically foreshadowed events affecting born again Israel in the Spiritual realm.

We concluded Part IV with the Apostle Paul’s admonitions to the Corinthians that the events which occurred to the Israelites – particularly when they were in the wilderness before they entered into the promised  land – were predictive of what was to occur to Israel at the end of the age.

A clear indicator of this pattern is seen in multiple verses in the New Testament, in which the text plainly indicates the linkage between the various sequences affecting the tribes, are predictive of the body of Christ during the New Covenant era. 

“Now these were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted” (I Corinthians 10:6). 

Paul went on to reassure the born again body at Corinth that God had exchanged their earthly, finite nature for an eternal existence in the heavenlies, because of their faith in Jesus Christ. In this regard, we see the formula we’ve dubbed the Shadow and the Substance is addressed as the Earthy (alternately spelled as earthly) and the Heavenly.

“Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual [heavenly], but that which is natural [earthy]; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven(I Corinthians 15:46, 47).

The Apostle goes on to restate the sequential order of the LORD’s redemptive plan, but again states the “earthy” (that which we’ve shown is the Shadow), precedes the “heavenly” (that which our previous chapter established as the Substance).

“As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly(I Corinthians 15:48, 49).

The word that is used for image is eikon, where we get our word icon. It means a copy, or a representation of something else.

Thus Paul is saying we bear (or manifest) the image of the earthy in our flesh and blood bodies and, as Christians, we also bear (or manifest) the image of the heavenly.

With this last statement, Paul is stating that since it is obvious the Christians have “earthy” bodies, which are images (or copies) of the Shadow (conforming to the pattern of the Shadow) – it is a logical indicator  that the believers also “bear the image of the heavenly” – i.e. the Substance (I Corinthians 15:49).

“There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body” (I Corinthians 15:44).

All of these things address the concept of the Great Exchange – in which the LORD calls those He has chosen to relinquish this Earthly life, and exchange it for the Heavenly life He offers. 

“For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it” (Matthew 16:25).

A rather subtle point is going to follow the previous statements, and Paul’s extensive explanation of the Earthy and the Heavenly (read the Shadow and the Substance), leads to his conclusion.

“Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption” (I Corinthian 15:50).

This statement explicitly contradicts the idea that “flesh and blood” can directly inherit a place in the kingdom of God under the New Covenant. Further, statements of this nature are a bit confusing when compared with the following:

“To be absent from the body [is] to be present with the Lord” (II Corinthians 5:8).

Thus, if we look at our existence as flesh and blood, how then can the Christian immediately move to the kingdom of God at our physical death?

To put it another way, as the redeemed in Christ, and the recipients of hundreds of promises of salvation made to Israel, we cannot be defined as exclusively “flesh and blood.“

Moreover, there are many proof texts which indicate believers in JESUS CHRIST are in a transitional state, recapitulating the position of ancient Israel, as they travelled through the wilderness awaiting their reward in the promised land.

For instance, as Israel was in the wilderness (which we’ve shown represents the Spiritual realm), they were no longer in bondage to Egypt, yet they wandered for many years before receiving the promise.  

“These…died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth” (Hebrews 11:13).

This is a very precise description of the Spiritual Israelite – the Christians – who are no longer in bondage to the flesh – yet our journey through the wilderness continues throughout this earthly life before we reach the substance in the heavenlies.

As we noted in Part IV of the Great Exchange, the entrance into the wilderness did not guarantee salvation, as the Pharaoh also went into the wilderness – and we know what happened to him. Thus, just as flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, we see there is a transitional arena where the decision is made as to which side of the multi-faceted man is going to prevail.

The Apostle Paul also addresses this conflict between the Spirit and the Flesh – which is essentially a war between life and death – as a determination is made concerning who we are going to obey.

“Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?(Romans 6:16).

It is significant the Scriptural admonitions repeatedly speak of a war – as individual battles are won or lost on multiple occasions -- whereas a war speaks of an enduring conflict.

“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal [read fleshly], but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds: Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ” (II Corinthians 10:4, 5).

Since we now recognize the composite state of the believer, in which we still occupy flesh and blood bodies which “have put on the new man which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him” (Colossians 3:9, 10), we can no longer be referred to as “flesh and blood.”

Moreover, the Scriptures coherently tell us the redeemed person in Christ  is no longer reckoned to be an ordinary man or woman:

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature(II Corinthians 5:17).

This helps to explain the various verses in which the believers are said to be Spiritual beings, or the sons (and daughters) of God, whose residency is in the heavenlies – as opposed to the earth.

“Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is” (I John 3:2).

Another indicator of the status of the saved and the lost parallels these Spirit versus flesh and blood verses. The book of Revelation, for example, references “them that dwell in heaven” (Revelation 13:6) – and a superficial acknowledgement of such verses inaccurately perceives this to apply exclusively to angels, and the heavenly host.

However, in the Spiritual realm, our “new man” (Colossians 3:10), who is “a new creature” (II Corinthians 5:17) dwells in heaven, where we are seated in Christ. Because He is at the right hand of the Father, and we are seated in Him, it follows that our “new man” is among “them that dwell in heaven” (Revelation 13:6).

Conversely, those who are inhabited by the Spirit of Antichrist, and his hemispheric half, the Spirit of the False Prophet, are “them that dwell on the earth” (Revelation 14:16).

Thus, all “them that dwell on the earth” are those “whose names are not written in the book of life” (Revelation 17:8). This is the “flesh and blood [that] cannot inherit the kingdom of God” (I Corinthians 15:50).

However, as we rejoice that God has chosen us to yield to His Spirit, as pilgrims we progress in our journey through the wilderness, for He has chosen us to dwell in heaven in Christ (John 15:19).

“And [He] hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:6).

Also from James Lloyd

The Baal Bible DVD
The Baal Bible DVD

James Lloyd summarizes the role of the heathen "scriptures" from Mesopotamia, which the scholars are using to leaven the genuine Word of God. In what he has dubbed the "Baal Bible," these Gentile writings speak of the Creation, the Garden episode, and the Great Flood, even as they glorify Baal. Part of a much larger conspiracy, since these Satanic records provide a distorted version of Genesis, the faulty dating of the scholars has conned Christian leaders into telling us the Baal Bible is the original, and the Hebrew Scriptures are the copy!

Escape From Planet Egypt Book
Escape From Planet Egypt

This new book is the electrifying story of how the Spirit of Antichrist has deceived the scholars into believing the Occult material from ancient Gentile writings generated the growing belief in the Divine Council heresy. James Lloyd's earlier book, Dead Men's Bones, provided a Scriptural refutation of the doctrine that claims the LORD directs a "council" of lesser gods, fallen angels, and heavenly beings.

Thou Shalt Ascend DVD
Thou Shalt Ascend:
The Storm Of Gog and Magog


Thou Shalt Ascend details the amazing reality of how the devils came to battle JESUS CHRIST at the entrance of the kingdom of God. In the new Christian Media DVD, Thou Shalt Ascend: The Storm Of Gog and Magog, James Lloyd shows how the fabled Gog and Magog Prophecies show a deeper Spiritual layer of the military conflict at the end of the age, as they actually describe the war in heaven (Revelation 12:7), when the dragon (and his Angelic Rebel Coalition) is cast out of heaven.

The 5th Dynasty
The 5th Dynasty

Related to the concept of Twin Timelines in which sequential episodes occur more than once in Scripture and History, this DVD looks at the rebellions against Moses in the Wilderness. Recognizing the failed revolt in Numbers 16, in which Korah and his followers died trying to overthrow Moses, the same thing occurred in 1649 AD as a parallel Christian rebellion tried to seize the throne of England for Christ. Known as the 5th Monarchy, James Lloyd connects this historical event with the 5th Dynasty of Israel, led by Jehu in I Kings 19:16.

Serpents, Scorpions, And Seventy Sons
Serpents, Scorpions, And Seventy Sons

Another new DVD from James Lloyd, Serpents, Scorpions, and Seventy Sons is 2 hours of dynamite video, derived from the TV program The Apocalypse Chronicles. Using the Scriptural record, James shows how the number 70 was related to the LORD's election of Israel, as His mediator to the Gentiles. The number is based on the presence of the children of Israel in Egypt, and this study shows how it symbolizes God's redemptive process, as Israel was chosen as "a light to the Gentiles"
(Isaiah 49:6).
Details Here!


Twin Timelines
The Saga Of Esau

Distilling Esau's behavioural patterns down to two themes related to how he despised the will of the LORD, and assigned blame to innocents whom he purposed to kill, James shows how The Saga of Esau is echoed in the Edomites, King Herod, the religious council of the Jewish leadership which rejected Christ, and even Antichrist and the False Prophet.

Twin Timelines
Twin Timelines DVD

Tying the various events of the presidential campaign (and the first 9 months of the Trump presidency) to what we call the Prophetic Parallels, this amazing new DVD features James detailing the entire cycle of the Twin Timelines – including predictions of where we go from here.
Details Here!


Dead Mens Bones
Dead Men's Bones DVD

A 2 hour DVD in which James Lloyd refutes the false doctrine of the Divine Council Paradigm. Spreading like wildfire, prophecy teachers are claiming God turned over the Gentiles (at the Tower of Babel) to a "council" of angels and the false "gods" of the Gentiles. The heresy is based on heathen manuscripts praising Baal and, incredibly, many Christian scholars are claiming certain Old Testament verses were derived from writings dedicated to Baal!
Details Here!


Traversing The Triuniverse
Traversing The Triuniverse

Traversing The Triuniverse is a unique new studio audio narrative from James Lloyd. Based on the article of the same name, James reviews the twin timelines concept, which has been previously examined, wherein the New Testament events parallel the Old Testament sequences. Now, in Traversing The Triuniverse, he takes the prophetic parallels a step further, showing how the Spiritual fulfillment is the substance, but the physical timeline, inhabited by the Spirit of Antichrist, which is the shadow, takes the same sequence, and reverses the roles.

Lord, Lord
Lord, Lord

Those famous words, familiar to Christians reading the New Testament, are spoken at the time of judgment, when the Bible says MANY will be turned away. Most believers are also aware of the ominous response in which Christ tells this "many" to depart from Him, as He never knew them.

A Light To The Nations
A Light To The Nations - Book

This book includes the astonishing prophetic metaphor where Jonah, symbolizing Old Covenant Israel, resists the call to prophesy to the Gentiles, and sails to Europe to escape the LORD's will. Swallowed up in symbolic Death – and then deposited back onto the land, where the Christ rejecting state re-emerges in 1948 as an involuntary witness, Jonah is an important figure in prophecy. Meanwhile, true Spiritual Israel is seen passing through the sea, walking in the will of the LORD, at the Exodus, even as the earthdwellers (the Egyptian host in the text) are destroyed.

Rise And Fall Of The Romerican Empire
The Rise And Fall Of The Romerican Empire - Book

In this amazing book, James brings together all the components of prophecy, including the Prophetic Parallels, the 6, 7, 8 Cycle, the Beast That Was sequence, the Little Horn, and the Twin Timelines of Bible Prophecy. Integrating these modularized phenomena into a seamless whole, The Rise and Fall Of The Romerican Empire deciphers Bible Prophecy in an unprecedented fashion.

The identity of Antichrist is again revealed in this work, as well as clearly showing where we are now in the prophesied sequence of events. His largest book in 20 years, the Rise and Fall Of The Romerican Empire is the definitive work which systematically presents the truth of Remnant theology.

The Collective
The Collective - Book


This book details how the Spiritual entity is essentially the opposite of the body of Christ. Symbolically articulated in the book of Revelation as the Image of the Beast, the Spiritual formation could also be described as the body of Antichrist. This polarity places the body of Christ on one end of the Spiritual spectrum, and the body of Antichrist on the other.

The Culting Of Christianity
The Culting Of Christianity - Book

The Culting Of Christianity links Egyptian mysticism to leaders in the early church, as well as Jewish opponents of Christianity.

An incendiary breakthrough, James conclusively shows the idea of a pre-tribulational evacuation was written in religious documents before Jesus was born. And it doesn't stop there, as James tracks how Occultic writings influenced the development of early Christian doctrine.

The Counterfeit Antichrist
The Counterfeit Antichrist

The first new DVD from James Lloyd in several years, this 2 hour TV program examines the rapidly growing idea the appearance of "the" Antichrist will be tied to the prophesied Moslem saviour figure known as The Mahdi.

Many Christian preachers and prophecy authors are now embracing a variation on the ancient "revived Roman Empire" lie with a scenario in which the end times "Antichrist" arrives as a powerful leader from the Islamic world. Leaning on Islamic prophecy itself, in the process of presenting their case in books, television programs, and speaking engagements, these false prophets are pitching another gospel (II Corinthians 11:4) which fails to recognize the truth about the Spiritual entities – commonly identified as Antichrist and The False Prophet -- found in Revelation.
