First Words regarding Australia in 1606

Click here for Christianity in Australia (pre 1945)

Who owns Australia, anciently referred to as terra australis incognita (Latin) - "unknown land of the south"? The words came just over 400 years ago: La Austrialia del Espiritu Santo - Australia of the Holy Spirit (click to hear the song), without the preceding "Terra" that had previously been used. These Spanish words were spoken by a spiritually minded Portuguese navigator with an Austrian king as his Spanish monarch on Pentecost Sunday, May 14th 1606 — were then adjusted and published in English (and Spanish) in 1625 as Australia del Espiritu Santo by Purchas, vol.iv, p.1432 — then changed again in Lieutenant James Cook's journal to Astralia del Espiritu Santo in 1770.

But Cook was noting that, even as Quirós proclaimed this to be the new name for the land he had been seeking — Terra Australis — south to the Pole, he had actually been on a small island group (Vanuatu) well to the east. Click here to see a copy of his map. And Quirós's second in command Torres had sailed on and come through Torres Strait, possibly sighting the hills of Cape York, but if so, taking no further notice.

Yes, mistakes occurred as so often happens when we "can't see the big picture". Still, later English writers declared their ongoing preference for Quirós's word though minus that first "i" . So, while English explorer James Cook now named the east coast New South Wales using an incomplete map of New Holland — yes, it had been named this by Dutch explorer Tasman in 1644 — both Matthew Flinders' chart in 1798-1804 and Governor Macquarie's letter in 1817 strongly recommended that the whole country reclaim the name Australia. Official recognition by the British Admiralty came in 1824.

Freedom and youth in 2006

Now click here to read about a get-together with vibrant imagery — tree-planting and "bread-breaking", between our recent Australian leader (John Howard)'s family, and American leader (George Bush)'s family on Sunday, May 14th 2006, a special day.

Firstly, it was the 400th anniversary of Quirós's proclamation

Secondly, it was the 200th anniversary of the successful English petition in 1806, when 2000 signatures laid before the House of Lords saw the abolition of the slave trade throughout the British Empire inside the year. It came at the time of London's rapid rise as a ruling "world city", the English navy ruling the seas, the English pound starting to rule the world's money markets, click here re the history of money, and along with new communications systems and a free press, the English language starting to rule the world's languages (e.g. Nigeria in Africa, India and Australia in Asia, U.S.A. in America), bypassing French as first or second language of countries everywhere.
Click here for interesting pictures in the origin of that word "English".

Thirdly, as second Sunday in May, it was worldwide Mother's Day.
Let us examine those scriptures on "Mother".

But Jerusalem above is free which is the mother of us all. Galatians 4:26
Yes, Jerusalem above is the heavenly mother, a kingdom that shines forth in wisdom — clarity. CS Lewis speaks of her as the enduring invisible church "terrible as an army with banners".
Further pictures on mother and child with John's vision in Revelation 12, see also Revelation 21, Genesis 4:25-26, Song of Solomon 8:5-7, Proverbs 8, and Proverbs 31.

Yes, free, along with her children.

And from the depths of a Tasmanian gold-mine to the snowy heights of Mt Everest, May that year certainly majored in Aussies being rescued. Click here for that last one. In June, the joy (and agony) of participating in world cup soccer. Click here for a short email sent via Col Stringer. In September, the worldwide sadness, as major news websites went into meltdown, at Steve Irwin's sudden death. Click here for one writer's review.
Whether we live or die, win or lose, there is enormous appeal in the freedom, the enthusiasm in someone like Steve's young, childlike (though a cynic would say childish) Aussie playfulness. To quote Bono: "things that really communicate universally are humour (surprised by joy), grace & strength of character" - three things often seen in little children. ok, not always at the same time
 

Truly, unless you about face, become as children, you shall not go in. Matthew 18:3
The word for child is "paidion", linked to "paideuo" meaning one who is trained up: chastened, and corrected.
See too Luke 7:35-50 regarding Wisdom and her children.

Enslavement and age in Palestine — Jerusalem below. Galatians 4:25, Isaiah 50:1
Sadly
the contrasted worldview of shame (pale, confused & distracted), blame and guilt can intimidate and bind us all so easily. On August 14th 2006 (3 months following that Mother's day) a U.N. brokered truce was announced for Hezbollah and Israel — provisionally reckoned "a messy draw" by Greg Sheridan, foreign editor at "The Australian". Seen by many as a proxy war, the latest episode in a 2300 year conflict involving the South (Egypt), North (Syria/Iran) and Jews in the middle - click here. Then, under provocation on February 14th 2007 (6 months later), John Howard declared in Parliament why he was so adamant about keeping 1400 Australian personnel in Iraq to support US troops. "A defeat in Iraq for the US would be more than bad for the war against terrorism; it would be catastrophic," Mr Howard said. "It would lead to not only a bloodbath in Iraq but the destabilisation of Saudi Arabia and Jordan and the end of any real hope of getting a Palestinian peace settlement. It would also embolden the terrorist cause in our part of the world."

Latest news on Israel and the Middle East

Plucky, but hemmed in.
Click Here for the latest News on Israel and Palestine — as at May 23rd 2017.

Click here to see the population growth in this land that now encompasses Israel, West Bank and the Gaza Strip. In 1920 it showed just 737 thousand but in 2017 there were 8 million in Israel, 3 million in the West Bank and 2 million in the Gaza Strip. Further east in the land that now encompasses Jordan, in 1920 it showed 675 thousand but in 2017 about 7 million. Further east again in Iraq, in 1920 it showed 3 million, but in 2017 about 37 million. Further east again in Persia (Iran), in 1920 it showed 11 million, but in 2016, 80 million. Yes, phenomenal growth, due in part to the abolition of slavery and the discovery of oil. Click the appropriate country to see similar growth in the north, in Lebanon 845 thousand to 6 million and Syria 2 million to 18 million, in the south, in Egypt 13 million to 93 million and Saudi Arabia 2 million to 32 million.

Current faith demographics on Israel's population of about 8 million show 75% to be Jewish, 2% Arab Christian, 1½% Druze, 18% Muslim and 3-4% nominally "other or none". In the 2011 census, non-Arab Christians estimated to number 25,000 (including "Messianic Jews"), were counted as "Jews and others". An important point, interfaith marriages are not permitted, when marrying in Israel, both parties must always be of the "same faith". Disputed East Jerusalem currently holds about 300,000 Palestinian Arabs and 200,000 + Israeli Jewish settlers. Then outside of Israel proper, about 2 million live in the Gaza Strip (99% Muslim), and about 3 million live in the West Bank (about 82% Muslim, 2% Christian, 15% Jewish settlers).

Prophecy

No prophecy (of scripture) ever came under human initiative, no, holy men received inspired utterance under the Holy Spirit. 2 Peter 1:21

"Iran has already threatened to bomb Israel's cities with its long-range missiles" - The Australian, Dec 15, 2009.
Click here for a built-in prophecy regarding the above statement in Isaiah 22. It shows Jerusalem fleeing together for mutual support as death occurs, not from close combat but from archers (or rockets). The warring nation is Elam - Iran (click here for a map) with Kir in Jordan uncovering the shield, and Babylon fallen, along with her false gods Isaiah 21:9. It shows Jerusalem tearing down houses to fortify the wall, rejoicing in her armour, but not looking to her maker, ignoring his call to repentance: "Let us eat and drink for tomorrow we die" Isaiah 22:13. Typified in a minister, Shebna meaning "growth" but seen as one digging a spectacular grave.

Click here for a recent opinion poll, 93% of Jews in Israel placing their highest trust in Israel's Defence Forces.

With such self-centred nihilism, the Lord declares this perversity would only be purged by death, as Shebna's powerful battle tanks become the disgrace of his master's house. And God calls Eliakim literally "God of resurrection" with words echoed in that promise to the church in Philadelphia of "laying the key of the house of David upon his shoulder, so he will open and none will shut, and he will shut and none will open" Isaiah 22:22.

The next chapter in Isaiah specifies how Tyre → Carthage collapses, see Isaiah 23 and Ezekiel 27, nor does the land of Egypt escape.

Tyre — Businesses and Politics

According to Jewish records, Tyre settled Carthage about 800BC and it became a mighty trading city. Carthage, spelt originally as Qart-Hadasht, means literally the "New   City", the "New Meeting place", and is sometimes called the "Woman-City". Its Phoenician alphabet, derived from the Hebrew, spread throughout Europe for trading purposes, providing contracts for buying, for selling, for law: before and after an event. And thus with Jewish missionaries, tutors, and schools teaching basics of phonetics to the children of business people and political masters, adapting it to their local language, if God's people, also teaching about God to humble hearts. Good things. Followed by the Christian missionaries, doing the same, and teaching about Christ. Now in the past 100 years the script has become universal, via the League of Nations, the United Nations, in business and entertainment, in computers and smartphones, this "Roman", this Latin, now this English script.

See this article in relation to Tunisia, the modern day name for the place of ancient Carthage, the dawn of the so-called "Arab Spring" in 2011. And we see in Daniel, "He (i.e. the appointed enemy) shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt, and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps" Daniel 11:42-43

With reference to 2 Corinthians 13:14
TIME click here for Bible Timeline can be seen as having now reached:

6000 years mankind on its own, 31 years — click here for Jesus's timeline, with the bridegroom, the Son of God.

    *1807-2006: (see footnote) Horseman one. The church, as his body. Joseph. The world wide war for the gospel opposing slavery and oppression during the last 200 years played a major role in increased life expectancy in many poorer regions outside Europe. But forgotten, somewhat like Joseph in prison . Still, between 1959 and 1999, world population doubled from 3 billion to 6 billion.

    Then in 1999, as Y2K (Year 2000) approached, many spoke of world wide economic calamity. In contrast, the sweeping deregulating that occurred with US Banks Securities and Insurance Companies combined with a worldwide launch of ADSL Broadband Internet (1998) and GPRS Mobile Internet (2000) meant these last 7 years were 7 years of unprecedented outward prosperity. Though within two years terrorists from Afghanistan declared war with that attack on the World Trade Centre in September 01. Horsemen two and three War and Trade.
    Headed by Omar Mullah, Taliban leader, reigning over that devastated area where gospel missionaries are frequently executed. Horseman four leading to Seal five Devastation and Martyrdom.

    And, following those seven fat years, seven lean years.
     

  4. Rosh Hashanah September 2006: 7 years of Israel: with Avowal at the UN.

    Coupled with the subprime crisis early glimpse was Merit Financial closing its doors May 4 06. Escalating Rosh Hashanah Sept 30 2008 two years later — running parallel to Joseph's words in Genesis 45: 9-11
    "Come down to me, do not delay — for there are yet five years of famine". Click here for thoughts.

    Following Rosh Hashanah (Sept 4th) 2013, click Here for that US Debt crisis as the US Govt closed down on 1st October, 2013. And as the world reached 7 billion.

Balances with 6031 years. So, as clearly as anything may be seen for now where we judge through a glass darkly, click here for a picture initially glimpsed also on May 4 06. Noting Paul's words: "Knowledge puffs up, but love builds the house. And if anyone figures they have seen anything, they have known nothing — not yet — as they ought to know. But if anyone loves God — seeks the building of God's house — this one has been known by Him." 1 Corinthians 8:1-3
"Despise not prophecy. Examine everything, hold fast that which is good." 1 Thessalonians 5:20-21
"For we know in part and we prophesy in part." 1 Corinthians 13:9


Seals 1-6

*Regarding the four horsemen (of the Apocalypse), we can see the first rider starting way back in 4000BC (1) Lord's finding heart faith — hidden/secret treasure in Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Joshua down to David: hiding it selling all and buying the field. The second rider 2,000BC (2) War & Division follows Babel and the confusion of tongues: in Israel we see Abraham's first son Ishmael following in his mother's footsteps and mocking Isaac, Moses striking the rock following Miriam's death and speaking bitterly to all, Saul's presumption of Samuel's priesthood role — all from time & people pressure. The third rider 500BC (3) Trading idolatry: Gold/Silver/Copper/Iron coinage, seen in Babylon, previewed in Saul's coveting of wealth followed by God's rejection and contrasted with Abraham's refusal to be indebted to the world Genesis 14 and Genesis 23. Finally the fourth rider 1,000 years later (4) Death and Hell: Terrorism, Intimidation, Devastation, Dark Ages over a quarter of the earth. Their capital becomes Baghdad close by the now ancient city of Babylon.

Thus the four horsemen reflect not just the past 1,940 years (or so) since John wrote the Book of Revelation, but go right back to the Book of Genesis. For the non-believer, it can be seen in those famous stages of grief: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, eventually, perhaps, comfort (Genesis 27:42).

And see too a similar picture Jesus showed regarding the four internal responses to the gospel in the parable of the sower in Matthew 13: "When any one hears the word of the kingdom, and understands it not, then comes the wicked one, and catches away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that hears the word, and immediately with joy receives it, yet has he not root in himself, but is temporary: for when tribulation/social pressure or persecution/physical harassment arises because of the word, in time he is offended/tripped up (due to this warfare). He also that received seed among the thorns is he that hears the word, and the cares/distractions of this world, and the deceitfulness/delusions of riches and physical fullness choke the word and he becomes unfruitful (due to this wealth). But he that received seed into the good ground is he that hears the word, and understands it, which also bears fruit, and brings forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty." Hallelujah.

Community-empowered (as opposed to privately-sponsored) schooling appears, training children up in the scriptures, arts and the law. Starts in Scotland (in 1496), spreads to Strasbourg and other German cities (in the 1500s), Massachusetts in the USA (in the 1600s), Prussia, Austria-Hungary, and Bohemia (in the 1700s), the rest of Europe and America, Australia and Japan (in the 1800s), Russia, China, and Muslim countries (in the 1900s) and finally all of India (in 2010) .

Sixth seal. 2000 AD The whole world starts to focus (in fear) on the sky. Get ready.

 

Click here for a list by Allianz of currency/stock/bonds owned by each country's residents - America currently showing €65 trillion.
Click here for each country's government "debt" with investment in America (internally and externally) - click here - in May 2016 showing $19 trillion.
Currently about 87%, click here, of all currency transactions across the world involve the US dollar.
Click here for each country's sovereign wealth funds (king was in his counting house) - America currently showing $142 billion.
Click here for each country's foreign exchange reserves - America currently showing $121 billion.
And click here for each country's official gold reserves - with 8133 tonnes, America currently valued at $380 billion, held by the US Federal Reserve. While these assets are technically owned by private shareholders (banks), note that by statute all profits or losses belong to the US Govt.

Comment from a friend "Note: The US not only holds the most gold but it represents 76% of their reserves. This means that whilst their dollar may not be backed by gold, they still understand its role as a potential storage of wealth in tough times. So, the US financial system is being hammered but as a country, any run on the gold price will help them (i.e. the federal reserve) to buy out the toxic debt and restabilise things. Look at the UK. Backs to a wall and no gold to play with...ouch."

And another friend's prayerful thought: "I think there are two currencies operating in the world: a) the currency of greed and corruption orchestrated by the world's international monetary system, and b) the currency of God's love revealed in Christ and extending Eternal Life to all who respond in faith to God's Call. I think this second currency operates 'under the radar' a lot of the time even though the world system tries to annex it through the institutionalisation of religion. But the Word of God grows and multiplies - Acts 12:24 - and wherever it grows and multiplies it brings blessing and peace and stability, in a measure, to the nations that do not actively war against it. Those that oppose it struggle massively with social degradation and economic impoverishment. I believe the uncharacteristic blessing that abides on Australia has come about because godly men and women have faithfully preached the Word over the time of our brief history. 'In Him was Life; and the Life was the Light of men. And the Light shines in the darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not' John 1:4,5. "

 

2 Thessalonians 2

Now we beseech you, brothers (and sisters), regarding the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together to him,

That you be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand (i.e. present)

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come the "female" divorcing first (i.e. a breakdown of monetary capital reserves, the trading city of Revelation 18:4, the harlot Babylon)   and that man of sin be revealed (uncovered)  the son of perdition (or ruin);

Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God , or that is worshipped ; so that he as God sits in the temple of God , showing himself that he is God

Remember you not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things ?

And now you have seen what withholds (holds him fast)  that he (i.e. the man of sin) might be revealed (uncovered)  in his season.

For the mystery of lawlessness does already work only the one who holds him fast, will now continue until it is out of the middle.

And then shall that lawless one be revealed whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
