This is an important message for potential saints, every one of the 144000 of Israel (ref. Revelation 7:1-8, Revelation 14:1-5).
This morning in Victoria Australia, at 2:11 am, there was a short 5.0 magnitude earthquake near the regional town of Colac at a depth of 7 km (ref. 1). According to Geoscience Australia, it lasted only for a second or two (ref. 2). And then at 5:44 am, which is exactly 3.5 hours later, a 3.5 magnitude aftershock happened at Apollo Bay (ref. 1, 2). 3.5 points to a time and times and half a time.
Apparently, thousands of residents in the state of Victoria felt the earthquake. And it was felt as far north as Bendigo and as far south as King Island around Tasmania (ref. 2). No injuries were reported.
But, for some reason, nothing shook where I was located.
What is the significance of this?
First, “Colac” is Aboriginal for either “fresh water” or “sand”. Second, “Apollo” in Greek means “the destroyer”.
The combination of “sand” and “the destroyer” points to the position of the most powerful of the saints, something that I have explained before: Isaiah 54:16.
In Job 29:18, the KJV’s “sand” is sometimes read as “phoenix”. Every saint or soldier of Christ can be likened to a phoenix, a fiery bird of prey.
I put on righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment was as a robe and a diadem… And I brake the jaws of the wicked, and plucked the spoil out of his teeth. Then I said, I shall die in my nest, and I shall multiply my days as the sand [phoenix].Job 29:14-18
In Isaiah 54:16, the KJV’s “the waster” is translated by other Bible versions as “the destroyer”.
Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster [the destroyer] to destroy.Isaiah 54:16
On the day of the LORD, I think I will become “the waster”, also known as “the destroyer”: the one among the saints that is to do internal affairs and counter intelligence.
I am the first of the saints, the servant of God in Isaiah 49. And I am also the prophesied ravenous bird from the east, the man from a country far away from Jerusalem that is called by God in Isaiah 46.
Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.Isaiah 46:9-11
I have explained all this before.
Now that this event has happened, I should say the following to every potential saint, every one that thinks he might be one of the 144000 of Israel: from now on, if there is an earthquake in the state and the country that you are in, you must check the name of the place of the epicentre, and the names of the places of any aftershocks, to see if there is something in all of that about you. Do this especially if the precise location that you are in did not shake at all, but elsewhere in the same state did shake. This may well be the means by which God is calling you to him.
For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.Romans 8:29-30
This may well also explain the prophecy that in the last days there are to be great earthquakes in diverse places (ref. Matthew 24:7, Mark 13:8, Luke 21:11), and great signs from heaven.
And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.Luke 21:11
Today’s earthquake in Colac struck at 2:11 am, probably precisely at 2:11:01 as in Luke 21:11.
Remember, the end can only begin once the 144000 saints of God have been sealed (ref. Revelation 7:1-3).
