For a few days now, cyclone Jasper has been moving off the coast of Queensland Australia, and moving “unusually slow”. Around 7 December UTC, it suddenly strengthened into a Category 4 before dropping back down to a Category 2, as it moved pass Willis Island (ref. 1).
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;Luke 21:25
The name “Willis” is English for “resolute protector” or “strong willed warrior”, and it derives from the name “William”. So I am thinking this is a sign about a saint.
A jasper is a gem, often red in colour because of its iron content. Jasper happens to be one of the precious stones that is to be put on the priestly breastplate of the ancient Israelites, specifically on the 4th row, the final stone of the breastplate (ref. Exodus 28:20). These 12 stones signify the 12 tribes of Israel.
And thou shalt make the breastplate of judgment with cunning work; after the work of the ephod thou shalt make it; of gold, of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine twined linen, shalt thou make it. Foursquare it shall be being doubled; a span shall be the length thereof, and a span shall be the breadth thereof. And thou shalt set in it settings of stones, even four rows of stones: the first row shall be a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this shall be the first row. And the second row shall be an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond. And the third row a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst. And the fourth row a beryl, and an onyx, and a jasper: they shall be set in gold in their inclosings. And the stones shall be with the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet; every one with his name shall they be according to the twelve tribes.Exodus 28:15-21
Jasper is also a stone that will be used to form the new heavenly Jerusalem (ref. Revelation 21:18-19).
And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; …Revelation 21:18-19
This city and its inhabitants, meaning the peoples of Christ, both Jew and Christian, across all time (i.e. the saved), are all collectively described in Revelation 21 as “the Lamb’s wife” (ref. Revelation 21:9). If the first host of heaven, the army of angels, is “the queen of heaven” (ref. Jeremiah 7:18), and the forthcoming army of the saints plus the holy remnant of Judah will be the next “bride” of Christ (ref. Revelation 19:7-8, Isaiah 61:10), then this heavenly city and its inhabitants will be the 3rd and final bride of Christ.
So, the point is, jasper is associated with the wife or bride of the Lamb, or in other words with the queen, as it were. Hence, Cyclone “Jasper” near “Queensland”, Australia.
Beyond that, jasper is also a stone associated with God himself. According to the words of Revelation 4, in heaven right now, to look upon him who sits on the throne of heaven, presumably God the Father, is to look upon something like jasper.
And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.Revelation 4:2-3
So, there is even a royal and divine sense to all of this.
Now, it is said that Jasper might make landfall somewhere between Townsville and Cooktown.
If around Townsville, then this cyclone must have something to do with the Australian government, because today Townsville is a significant base of the Australian Defence Force. Maybe this is about Australia versus China. Or maybe it is about Australia’s relations with Papua New Guinea, West Papua, and Indonesia. In time, West Papua, which has an independence movement that waves a flag described as the “morning star”, is to break away from Islamic Indonesia, no matter what the likes of the CIA say. So, geopolitcally, Australia would do well to choose the correct side.
If around Cooktown, then this cyclone must be a sign about a saint, either me or someone else.
If elsewhere, then I don’t know.
Here, I should remind that Captain James Cook, the first of the British to find Australia, was a devout Christian. He carried with him the KJV Bible on his ship HMS Endeavour, which actually beached at Cooktown 11 June 1770 – hence the name of the town. The Botanist that accompanied him, Joseph Banks, was a noted Freemason, i.e. a secret Satanist. Still, Cook was undoubtedly a proper Christian. There was no chaplain on his ship because Cook is said to have led the Sunday service himself. A few decades later, another British officer Lachlan Macquarie would defy the Crown’s proscription of Freemasonry, and change the nature of Australian society for the worse.
Anyway, over a thousand years from now, Australia, as one of the young lions of Tarshish, is to be properly Christian again (ref. Ezekiel 38:13). This is a Bible prophecy, so it is the will of God.
Moving on to the eruption of the volcano “Merapi” on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia.
And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.Joel 2:30
“Merapi” is said to mean “mountain of fire”. Both words “mountain” and “fire” bring to mind the idea of the saints. There were 75 hikers in all when the eruption occurred last week. Initially 49 made it back safely, and then 3 others were found alive (ref. 2). So, the numbers 75, 49, 3.
Isaiah 49 prophesies the first of the saints, me. 1975 is the year of my birth.
And said unto me, Thou art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.Isaiah 49:3
I was not going to say anything about Merapi, but then cyclone Jasper happened.
For those wondering how can it be a sign from God if several Indonesians were killed, I should add that by the time of the trumpets, when the Pacific Ring of Fire explodes, Indonesia as it is today will be no more. Quite likely, the entire island of Sumatra where Aceh, the most Islamic part of Indonesia, is will go into the sea. This is Isaiah 59:18-19.
According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompence. So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun…Isaiah 59:18-19
Indonesia systematically massacred hundreds of thousands of non Muslims during the Cold War so that the whole country could become Islamic, all with the blessing of the CIA.
So, in these last days, everyone that dies is supposed to die, and everyone that survives is supposed to survive.
Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof… Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.Psalms 46:2-11
A remnant of Indonesia will live on in Kalimantan on the island of Borneo, a place which is next to Sarawak, a Christian part of what used to be British Malaya. There, they will renounce Islam, once and for all. Today, because Jakarta is already literally sinking into the sea, the government of Indonesia has commence plans to move the capital to Kalimantan, even though no one knows what is about to happen.
Returning to Isaiah 49, something else to note is that once I am transformed, I last forever!
This is because the saint of Isaiah 49 is to be a light for the salvation of Christians generally “unto the end of the earth”. I am to be a light until the earth is burned up by the sun and the time comes for the new Jerusalem.
… I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.Isaiah 49:6
I am to be a light until then, because thereafter, no one else can be saved. At that time, all who are alive have already been saved, and what is more, in the new Jerusalem, Jesus Christ himself will be the light both metaphorically and literally.
And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.Revelation 21:23-24
So, in these last days, being the light of Isaiah 49:6 and having the word “light” as part of my name 光, especially now since the Holy Spirit and the 2 witnesses have not yet arrive, people should listen to me.
Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me; And said unto me, Thou art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.Isaiah 49:1-3
I don’t always get things right, but I am unlike anyone else.
