Christian Media



Part XIV


In our last installment, we showed how the ancient letters found at Tell El Amarna between Pharaoh Amenhotep IV and the king of Israel indicated that king was Ahab, and his correspondence with the Pharaoh coincided with the time of several of Israel’s many wars with Syria.

The Amarna letters (as well as numerous stone monuments), tell us that Amenhotep IV was the Pharaoh who changed his allegiance from the historic Egyptian deity Amon, to another god that he called Aton. This was illustrated by the fact that he changed his name from Amenhotep (which was a compound name that included Amon’s name) to the infamous name of Akhnaton (a compound named which incorporated the name of Aton). 

In this regard, it is certain there was an affinity between Ahab (who  departed from the historic worship of Yahweh in Israel, and turned to the worship of Baal), and Akhnaton. Ahab was the noteworthy Israelite king who set an unholy example for Israel, as he prominently sought to shift Israelite religion away from Yahweh, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to the Mesopotamian Baal.

The context of at least one of the letters showed that Aman Appa, who had been posted to Samaria as an official of Israel’s Egyptian overlords, had already been recalled to the city of Akhet Aton. In the Scriptural narrative where this “Aman Appa” was mentioned, our last installment noted a sequence wherein Ahab sent one of the prophets of the LORD to this Egyptian governor, to be detained in his custody.

“Then the king of Israel said, Take ye Micaiah, and carry him back to Amon the governor of the city” (II Chronicles 18:25).

In examining the Amarna documents, although the names in the Egyptian inscriptions are periodically similar to the Scriptural names, on other occasions the name is so dissimilar the connection is only deduced by the context. For instance, the name Urusalem (which is seen in the Egyptian letters), is easily identified, whereas other names are more mysterious as they are among the multiple monikers of many of the places and the people.

Among the scholars who deciphered the Amarna letters, Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky deduced that a frequently mentioned city called Gubla, had multiple names, including Batruna , Byblos, and Botrys. Internal evidence indicated this place was toward the coast of Northern Israel, and since it was frequently mentioned in the Amarna letters, it was clearly important. 

Toward the time of the New Testament, the historian Flavius Josephus mentioned that Botrys (one of the many names of Gubla) was founded by Ethbaal, who the Scriptures tell us was the King of Sidon, and the father of Queen Jezebel.

At this point, a little background concerning the ancient twin cities of Tyre and Sidon, is in order. 

The Sidonians were the coastal people of Tyre and Sidon, to the Northwest  of Israel, and they were skilled in building with Lebanon’s legendary forests (see “the cedars of Lebanon,” for example, in Psalm 104:16).

This people group was related to the Israelites, and the man appointed to manage the interaction between Tyre/Sidon and Solomon for the massive temple building project was descended from the tribe of Dan.

[The king of the Sidonians] sent a cunning man…the son of a woman of the daughters of Dan, and his father was a man of Tyre, skillful to work in gold, and in silver, in brass, in iron, in stone, and in timber” (II Chronicles 2:14).

The portion of the promised land given to the Israelite tribe of Dan was coastal, and it bordered the town of Joppa – the very Mediterranean port where the massive timbers were off-loaded from the ships of the Tyrians and the Sidonians.

“[The Sidonians] will cut wood out of Lebanon…and we will bring it to [Solomon] in floats by sea to Joppa(II Chronicles 2:16).

As a result of the enormous temple building project, the entire population of Tyre and Sidon were virtually acquired by Solomon, when he embarked on the decades long building of the great temple.

The Scriptures repeatedly mention Hiram, the leader of Tyre (and a friend of King David), who contracted with the Israelite king to build David a great house. 

“And Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar trees, and carpenters, and masons: and they built David an house” (II Samuel 5:11).

When Solomon came to power, he was acutely aware of the prophecy issued to David that he was not to build the temple he had envisioned, but his son would be the person that God would raise up to build the temple. The prophet Nathan, speaking for the LORD, specifically told David he was not to build the LORD a house.

“Thus saith the Lord, Thou shalt not build me an house to dwell in. Furthermore I tell thee that the Lord will build thee an house…I will raise up thy seed after thee, which shall be of thy sons; and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build me an house, and I will stablish his throne for ever” (I Chronicles 17:4, 10, 11,12).

The New Testament conclusively establishes that JESUS CHRIST, who was a direct descendant of King David in the flesh, “builds” the temple of the LORD, in the Spiritual realm. Multiple Scriptures tell us that because of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross (and subsequent resurrection), it is the Christian’s bodies, which are the “temple” that hosts the Spirit of the LORD.

“The temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. Ye also, as [living stones], are built up a spiritual house” (I Corinthians 3:17, I Peter 2:5).

As Solomon was the flesh and blood seed of David, he erroneously assumed that he was the one who would fulfill the prophecy that David’s “son” would build the house of the LORD. Undoubtedly, Solomon also coveted the fact that the prophecy also said that ”son” would reign forever.

Thus, when Solomon sought to construct the great temple, he recruited Hiram, the King of Tyre, who had previously built a great house for David.

“Thou knowest that there is not among us any that can skill to hew timber like unto the Sidonians” (I Kings 5:6).

The massive wealth of Solomon had provided long term employment for the naval capabilities of Hiram’s people as well, for the process of transporting the huge timbers to Jerusalem for building the temple was no small feat.

The Word of God tells us that significant numbers of Israelites were deployed to live in Lebanon for years, while timbering for the vast construction of the temple.

“And [Solomon] set threescore and ten thousand of them to be bearers of burdens, and fourscore thousand to be hewers in the mountain, and three thousand and six hundred overseers to set the people a work” (II Chronicles 2:18).

During the temple construction period, extensive naval resources of Solomon and the Tyrians were developed to explore foreign lands, in the search for the gold and silver required for the great project. Thus, after the temple was completed, these maritime projects continued, in order to sustain trade with foreign lands.

During this period, following his marriage to Hatshepsut, the daughter of Egypt’s Pharaoh, Solomon married hundreds of princesses from the nations adjacent to Jerusalem, so it is inconceivable that he would have slighted the hereditary royal house of the Sidonians. The result was that Israel completely absorbed the coastal nation, and the offspring of the mingled people in the region became known as the Phoenicians.

The distinction between Solomon’s Sidonian wife and Ahab’s wife Jezebel, was in the fact that Jezebel was the premiere wife of Ahab, whereas Solomon’s first wife was the Queen of Sheba. Although Solomon foolishly allowed the construction of high places and a priesthood for the gods of his many Gentile wives (which would have facilitated religious writings extolling the supposed virtues of the foreign deities), it wasn’t until Ahab that the kings of Israel brazenly and prominently chose to serve Baal, and not the LORD.

“But there was none like unto Ahab, which did sell himself to work wickedness in the sight of the Lord, whom Jezebel his wife stirred up(I Kings 21:25).

A century after Solomon, as Ahab repeatedly warred with the Syrians, there was a time when the capital city of Samaria had been taken, as Ahab had surrendered it to the king of Syria.

“And the king of Israel answered and said, My lord, O king, according to thy saying, I am thine, and all that I have” (I Kings 20:4).

In one of the Amarna letters from the king of Samaria to the Pharaoh, the correspondence confirms that the king of Syria had taken Samaria.

“When Abdi-Ashrati [Ben Hadad the Syrian] conquered Sumurri, I protected the city by my own hand. I had no garrison” (Amarna letter #138).

As Samaria was taken in at least one of the Syrian wars, letters came to the Egyptian king from the king in the aforementioned “Gubla” – and it appears that it was Ahab corresponding with Pharaoh Akhnaton from a retreat position. 

In what amounts to an ancient change of address notification, Ahab asked Akhnaton to re-route any Egyptian assistance to his alternative headquarters. 

“What was formerly given [to] Sumura should now be given [to] Gubla” (Amarna letter #85).

This answers a question plaguing the scholars for many years, who have never been able to explain the many Scriptural references indicating that Ahab and Jezebel were no longer located in the capital of Samaria, but reigned from a second capital named Jezreel.

We’ve already noted the Israelites considered the Sidonians the world’s best builders (I Kings 5:6), and the place/name Gubla has been identified as having been constructed by the King of Sidon, so it’s hardly a stretch to see this city was renamed Jezreel when Ahab and Jezebel moved there from the compromised capital of Samaria.

It’s even conceivable that Jezreel/Gubla was given as a present (or even as a  dowry) to Ahab from Jezebel’s father, the king of the Sidonians. In fact, it may have actually been part of a tradition, as a century earlier, the Pharaoh had given an entire city to his daughter, who married the king of Israel.

”For Pharaoh king of Egypt had gone up, and taken Gezer, and burnt it with fire, and slain the Canaanites that dwelt in the city, and given it for a present unto his daughter, Solomon’s wife” (I Kings 9:16).

As previously noted, this “Gubla,” which we’ve connected to Jezreel, was also known as Byblos. As Tyre and Sidon were within the region of ancient Lebanon, it is no surprise that Byblos/Gubla has been located in the coastal region of Lebanon, and it has the revealing modern name of Jbail, or Jbayl!

Amazingly, there is even a temple in this modern city which is dedicated to Baalat Gubal, or the Lady of Gubla, which references a famous female who once had a presence there. We know her from the Scriptures where she is plainly identified as Jezebel

In other words, the ancient capital of Ahab and Jezebel, then known as Jezreel, is actually named after Jezebel in our time. Further, archaeologists who are searching for Jezreel in their excavations of Northern Israel have not connected Jezreel with the “Gubla” of the Amarna letters, because they place “Gubla” in the 14th century BC, 600 years before Jezebel lived there in the time of Ahab and Akhnaton.

To put it another way, the stone and bones people will never find Jezreel in their many efforts to excavate Northern Israel, because the scholars have misled them to the degree that they’re looking in the wrong country. Christian Media, on the other hand, is still using the Holy Bible as a repository of the light of the LORD, which allows us to peer through the surrounding Spiritual darkness, as we continue our walk through the treacherous times in which we live.

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (Psalm 119:105).

To Be Continued




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 regularly issued companion letter commenting on the material seen in each chapter of ESCAPE FROM PLANET EGYPT. 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.

However, the enemy has already sown tares in this vineyard, and we choose not to provide the website links to view the free video 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. 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).

To get our current Internet links, and receive full access to Christian Media materials, simply reply to this email with the word YES! in the subject line, and your name and postal mailing address in the body of the email, and we’ll send you the links to the multiple websites Christian Media operates -- which freely host extensive written prophetic material, multiple radio shows, and the video related to the above prophecy article.

Further, as many Internet Service Providers (ISP) censor Christian material, when we send prophecy information to those who love the truth, and it  “bounces” back because you are being censored (and you don’t know it,  because you never see what is being held back from being delivered to you), we will print it out and mail it to you via surface mail.

If you’ve already responded with a YES! and your name and mailing address after receiving a prior issue of this Internet periodical, you do not need to reply again, as the links we send you through surface mail provide you with an offline record on how to access all of our websites. 

Alternatively, to be removed from the database sending out our information, simply forward this email to ChristianMedia1@ChristianMediaUpdate dot com with the word REMOVE in the subject line (we spell out the .com in this correspondence to avoid those same censors). Because our material is being urgently sent by many volunteers, to delete you from our databases, we need this actual email to find how you received our prophetic content.

(Please send your name and mailing address to James@Christianmedianetwork dot com) or call our voice mail at 541/899/8888, and leave the data on the recording.

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).

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.

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!

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.
