On 2 December UTC, Cyclone Jasper formed, and then it rapidly intensified and peaked at Category 4 on 7 December UTC. The numbers 2 and 7 and 4. Yesterday, Jasper, moving unusually slow and a Category 2, made landfall slightly south of Cooktown, roughly between Wujal Wujal and at a camping site called, wait for it, “Cape Tribulation” (ref. 1, 2). I did guess that it might make landfall around Cooktown, which was named after Captain Cook, the Christian British naval officer who discovered Australia. But I did not know that there was a place with the word “tribulation” in it around the area until now. The day before, Jasper, also at Category 2, passed some distance south of Willis Island. “Willis” means “resolute protector” or “strong willed warrior”. After going pass Willis Island, it weakened to a Category 1, before suddenly re-strengthening to a Category 2 and making landfall, yesterday.
So, the stone jasper, the numbers 7 and 2, the state Queensland, the name Willis, the word tribulation – all of this points to the notion of a saint. In regard to the numbers 7 and 2, half of 144000 is 72000. There is also the fact that ancient Assyria swept away the kingdom of Israel in 722 BC. Besides both of that is my birth date, 7 February. As for the number 4, that might be a reference to the 4th beast, prophesied by Daniel 7, or else the 4 in 144000.
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
I think, this sign, perplexing to Australia, has to do with a specific saint that involves this country, either me or someone else. I say someone else because the job of the waster, as I understand it, will at first be international.
Then again, this sign might about the saints in general, and the prophecy of tribulation in these last days, as a consequence of the 4th beast.
Regarding the latter, just as the Son of God had to suffer tribulation and persecution in his day as the Son of man, so too must the sons of God suffer tribulation and persecution in these last days. This is because the servant is not greater than his Lord.
If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.John 15:18-20
The Bible prophesies that in these last days, both the Assyrian and the false prophet will “war” against the saints.
I beheld, and the same horn [the Assyrian] made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; Until the Ancient of days [Jesus Christ] came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.Daniel 7:21-22
There will be no pre-trib rapture. As a matter of fact, for the ordinary Christian, someone who is not a saint, there will be no rapture at all. The reaping as it is described in Revelation 14, which speaks of the 144000, is entirely about the saints: 12000 of each of the 12 tribes of Israel, including the tribes scattered by ancient Assyria in the year 722 BC.
And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.Revelation 14:1
And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.Revelation 14:14-16
So, the reaping or the rapture – the harvest of the saints – is to happen at the sounding of the 7th trumpet and the pouring of the 7th vial, which is “immediately after the tribulation”.
Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.Matthew 24:29-31
Now, what is the tribulation for a saint?
The tribulation is a test of loyalty to God, and a test of faith in God.
Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.Revelation 14:12
Of the ten commandments, the first – Thou shalt have no other gods before me – is the most important. The first commandment is about loyalty.
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment.Matthew 22:37-38
Concerning the second part, faith in Jesus, you must understand and believe the actual gospel of the kingdom of God. This is not a simple thing because these last days are a time of “confusion” and “strong delusion” – prolific false teachings emanating from demons in Mystery Babylon. Hardly any pastor or scholar understands what the kingdom of God is, let alone a saint.
For some months now, I have been writing about the concept of the saints, the 144000 chosen ones of God, a forthcoming army of the kingdom of God. This idea of a new army of God has always been in the Bible, only hidden until these last days. I am the first to explain it. Apparently, not since the days of Paul have Christian churches or scholars understood it. This is why Isaiah 49:6 says what it does.
And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel…Isaiah 49:6
What is a saint?
A saint is one of the 144000, chosen and predestined by God, to serve the coming kingdom of God here on earth as a soldier. Once born again, a saint will work for the kingdom of God during the Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ, and beyond.
And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.Revelation 22:12-13
Jesus Christ himself will command this army, either directly or through the Holy Spirit (ref. Isaiah 45:12, Revelation 15:3).
Every saint must change from a human body, which is corruptible and mortal, to a new star-like body, which is incorruptible and immortal.
Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.1 Peter 1:23-25
This is what it means for a saint to be given the morning star.
And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.Revelation 2:26-28
So, if you are a saint, whether you are alive or dead by the sounding of the 7th trumpet and the pouring of the 7th vial, you will be born again. Either you will be translated or else you will be resurrected. Either way, you will be changed. This is 1 Corinthians 15:51-53.
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.1 Corinthians 15:51-53
Now, if it makes no difference whether you are alive or dead at the time of the reaping, then you should have no fear of the threat of execution and no fear of the threat of imprisonment.
This is the matter of faith for a saint.
By now, the Devil does know about the idea of the saints, probably because of time travel. Because the Devil knows, so too will the Assyrian. The Bible is clear that the Assyrian is no ordinary Islamist: in his own estate he worships “the god of forces” (ref. Daniel 11:38). The Assyrian’s war against the saints is expressed in Isaiah 10:14, which reads that he finds the “nest” of “the riches of the people”, and kills “the eggs” before the birds can hatch, or at least that is what he thinks.
… I will punish the fruit of the stout heart of the king of Assyria, and the glory of his high looks. For he saith, By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom; for I am prudent: and I have removed the bounds of the people, and have robbed their treasures, and I have put down the inhabitants like a valiant man: And my hand hath found as a nest the riches of the people: and as one gathereth eggs that are left, have I gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved the wing, or opened the mouth, or peeped.Isaiah 10:12-14
Anyone that imprisons a saint in these last days at the time of the Assyrian and the false prophet will in turn be imprisoned after the day of the LORD. Likewise, anyone that kills a saint will in turn be killed. It will be like this because anyone that does either of these two things during the tribulation will be doing it for the Devil.
If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.Revelation 13:9-10
Behold, all they that were incensed against shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish. Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.Isaiah 41:11
Your tribulation as a saint, and maybe even your life for a while now, will all amount to a sacrifice of sorts, not altogether dissimilar from the sacrifice made by the Son of man. Your sacrifice as a saint is your covenant with God.
Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.Psalms 50:5
One metaphor the Bible uses to describe the saints is “calves” growing up of the stall. This means, just as the Lamb essentially sacrificed himself for God, so too must his calves.
But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.Malachi 4:2-3
Something else to note is that, if you are a saint, in these last days, God will help strengthen your faith, either directly or through his angels. This will ensure that you cross the finish line victorious. It is Bible prophecy that “not one faileth” (ref. Isaiah 40:26), so all of the 144000 are to prevail against the Devil in these last days.
Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host [army] by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.Isaiah 40:26
… thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend. Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away. Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.Isaiah 41:8-10
So this means, if you have been predestined to be a saint, you may well see supernatural things happening around you now and again, signs that indicate that God is with you. And if God is for us, who can be against us? That saying in Romans 8 is actually one for the saints at a time of tribulation.
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. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?Romans 8:29-31
This is how it will be for a saint.
As for the elect of Judah that are to remain in human form, it is necessary in these last days to stay alive. So, unless one is a saint (e.g., male and virgin and with a special name), a Jew must fight back through the IDF, or escape, or evade: basically he or she must “endure” until the day of the LORD, the “end” of the tribulation.
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.Matthew 10:22
And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.Mark 13:20
As for Christians generally, described in Revelation as “martyrs of Jesus”, one must have faith in Jesus Christ, and believe in the Bible that there is life after death, in heaven and later in the new Jerusalem.
And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.Revelation 7:13-17
The tribulation will begin when the two beasts of Revelation appear: the one from the sea with 7 heads and 10 horns, and the other from the earth with 2 horns like a lamb.
After the tribulation, once a saint has been transformed, there will be nothing more that mankind or even demons can do. By that time, a saint will be invincible – invulnerable to bullets and bombs – basically a living, walking, flying weapon of God, the like of which this world has never seen.
