Minister Ty Alexander
(Ty Huynh)

I was brought out of a secular life very unexpectedly and suddenly when I started ministry over ten years ago at the end of 2008. In 2015, I was ordained as a minister, and in 2016 I was also certified as an End of Life Specialist to work with hospice patients. For details about my life before ministry and how I came to believe in Christ after getting miraculous signs, see my testimony in Chapter 3 of the 3rd Compass book.

Through much of my first years in ministry, I had to deal with both good and false guidance in myself as well as other ministries and the church. Why should you trust me then? After all, even decades of studying and accepting the wrong things does little good to make you a teacher who teaches correctly.

Something you can't dismiss is I have over ten years experience sorting through both good and bad spiritual guidance and teaching. God also allowed me to get the truth out of it, so all our knowledge and experience isn't useless or fruitless if we were taught wrong. And when we come out of the wrong beliefs then we're much better equipped to combat what we had wrong.

Also, in that decade of ministry, almost every ministry, church, Christian, Bible, and Bible resource I've come across had something or another wrong, so wherever you turn for teaching and advice, you cannot just follow and accept blindly, but need to closely examine and be able to think critically about what is being said or taught. The things I teach help with that from the further details and truth I share.

I also know my ministry is God-ordained and predestined for me to follow, because of the many things that line up to show it. The 3rd Compass ministry name and logo even have divinely inspired elements to them, such as the English gematria value for "3rd Compass" is 111, which I was led to understand represents God in the Holy Trinity, since God is both 1 and 3 at the same time (1 + 1 + 1 = 3; More details about the ministry name and numbers can be seen in About the 3rd Compass Church Name and Logo and The Meaning of Numbers).

I was also led to a page spread[1.2.1] in my first Bible that begins at Jeremiah 1:11 and 2:13, which includes the 111 again and 213, another number I was given guidance about in 2009 that symbolizes the end of our current age before Christ's second coming.

I found out I was even given the number 213 in 2005 or 2006 before I believed in Christ, when I was given a limited-edition poster of artwork for leading a motorcycle dealer's Triumph riding group. The print was numbered 213 out of 675 (see photo below). I only realized it lining up with my new Christian life and ministry two years after I started ministry, since I didn't pay much attention to the print number before knowing about the significance of 213.

Something else that made me realize I was destined to serve God was that I was inspired to paint my motorcycle in 2005 with an armored theme (photos below). This was three years before I came to believe in Christ. Its license plate was even ARMORD or "Armored." Some years later, my bike's theme was something the lead pastor of a Christian motorcycle retreat pointed out had lined up with their theme of the weekend - The Armor of God.

If all these physical alignments weren't enough to speak of a pre-destined path of ministry, I was once again surprised by the license plate, TCP-611, of my old Ford Ranger (photo below). I bought it on November 8, 2008 to haul my race bike, and at this time I was just beginning my path as a new Christian and had not started any formal ministry. But what I didn't realize about the license plate until the next year was that it spelled out "Internet Servant," since TCP is short for TCP-IP, the primary computer protocol used for the Internet, and 611 is a phone number that means Customer Service, since that is the number we often need to dial to get customer service with our phone carriers. This intriguing alignment with my future path in ministry spoke to the fact that much of it would be conducted on the Internet.

The license plate on Ty's Ford Ranger read TCP-611 or 'Internet Servant' before he realized he would become a minister that used the Internet as a primary ministry tool

Another interesting thing with phone numbers is that when I looked at the gematria values for 3rd Compass, I also found phone number links in it. 411 is the Latin gematria value for 3rd Compass and is the number we dial to get information, such as to look up a phone number. Today, 411 is often used to mean "information" in common speech. This alignment with 411 in 3rd Compass represents how the ministry is an information carrier for God.

Another phone reference in 3rd Compass is 651. That is its Old English gematria value and is the area code for my phone number in the St. Paul, Minnesota area. That was my phone area code since I can remember having a cell phone, which was many years before I became a Christian or was inspired to name my ministry 3rd Compass.

Another interesting detail with my Ford pick-up truck is the artwork design on it. If you read about the 3rd Compass logo and name, you'd notice the moon that started my life of ministry was a waxing moon or one growing toward fullness or life. The one on my truck is the opposite, a waning moon, which is one that is going towards death. I believe God made that detail important to note that my path in motorcycle racing would be a dead end, since I bought the truck for racing.

After three years of racing from 2009 to 2011, it becoming a dead end would prove to be true. Success never materialized on the racetrack, but it being a part of my life and ministry was obviously pre-destined. It would only prove to be a means for God to lead me through difficult trials that would help me mature in perseverance and other virtues as well as be a venue to evangelize for Christ.

Further Proof of Predestined Anointment 7/7/2019 10:10 AM
On March 5, 2010, a woman came up to me after a Bible study at a friend's workplace. She was not part of the study but an employee who worked for my friend. She told me she was moved to pray for me, and after she began, I felt the energy of the Spirit come upon us. She spoke in tongues intermittently, and said, "Do not doubt the word given to you," and other things to encourage me to continue as a minister delivering God's word.

I was having serious doubts about spiritual guidance I received at the time and had many failures, because of false guidance as well as my inexperience in dealing with prophecy and other spiritual guidance, like visions, words, and dreams.

The woman also told me I was given the power to break chains through my witness testimony and said after touching my lips, "I anoint your lips to speak truth," which was like Jeremiah's anointment from God where He did similarly in Jeremiah 1:9-10.

There was so much energy during this, I could tell it was difficult for her to speak. Afterwards, she said she hoped I understood what was said, because she didn't. I never met her before, so she couldn't know what was going on in my life.

A few months later on August 28, I got more encouragement to continue in the very difficult path of ministry I had in learning about spiritual warfare, further truth, and correcting the church. I was at a Christian motorcycle retreat and that evening we were praying at the chapel when the lead pastor came up to me and said he got a word from God for me very clearly when he was praying. It was "COURAGE."

It was then I remembered guidance I got months earlier about the number 413 or four-thirteen going with Philippians 4:13, "I can do everything through Him who gives me strength" (see The Meaning of Numbers for more about 413). My 413 guidance also went with 1 Peter 4:13 about suffering like Christ: "But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when His glory is revealed," and Exodus 4:13 where Moses tells God, "O Lord, please send someone else to do it."

Moses was trying to get out of being God's spokesman, because he was not eloquent and was slow of speech and tongue (Exodus 4:10). I recognized the 413 connection in Exodus 4:13 because of my own ineloquence and call to speak for God. He gave me the strength to continue in suffering and speaking for Him through many hardships.

By the end of 2010, I had about two years of ministry under my belt but was still going through hard times and did not see a lot of success, or at least the kind of success I was looking for - both in my life and the church changing for the better. I was expecting my first book to finance my new life and ministry, but it did not generate much income, and I was in serious debt after leaving my career for ministry.

At the time, I didn't realize the failures weren't all my fault, because I was also dealing with a lot of false guidance and bad teaching I had accepted. It threw off my projects. However, God doesn't measure success with financial rulers or the number of followers you can get. The failures I had let me learn a lot about spiritual warfare and the state of the world and church.

It was on November 3, 2010 a couple weeks after I accepted further truth about how we are saved into God's kingdom and gave my trust to leave the church and its teachings, I got a gift from my ex-wife, which I attribute to God because I associated it with the scripture, "But everything comes from God" (1 Corinthians 11:12).

The gift was a gold ring with a large, red center gemstone and six small diamonds lining two of its sides (see photo below). At the time, I felt it was reconciliation from both God and my ex for going through tough times, however, like the poster marked 213, I didn't realize the ring had significance engraved into it that went with my ministry.

Ty's signet ring

But first, I'll share what the ring symbolizes. A few days after I got the ring, I received seven daily devotional emails from a 3rd Party ministry that were repeated from July on November 7th. I immediately recognized they went with the ring, because the devotionals were centered on July 12th, my birthday, and my birthstone is ruby - a red gemstone like the ring's center gem.

And like the emails with six devotionals surrounding the central July 12th one (three on each side), my ring has six small diamonds around the center gem, also with three on each side of it. Seven emails, seven gems, and on the seventh of the month.

It was puzzling to get all the references to the number seven and the seven repeated devotionals from earlier in the year, especially right after receiving the ring and having them connect through my birthday.

I soon understood the devotional arrangement matched the gemstones on the ring. The "center" devotional of July 12th goes with the large, center gem. It was about God, The Holy Trinity, which has obvious importance as the centerpiece, but the gem is also square cut, which further symbolizes New Jerusalem, because Revelation 21:16 says New Jerusalem is "laid out like a square, as long as it is wide... and as wide and high as it is long."

Later, I went to some jewelers who said the red gem in the ring is actually a garnet. Why wasn't it a ruby? The garnet has meaning too, since its color is a blood red that symbolizes Jesus' blood shed on the cross for the New Covenant. Rubies are usually a brighter, lighter colored red.

With all this symbolism in the blood red garnet and square cut, the center gem represents God's promise of building His church, which makes the ring a signet ring for my role to help build the Bride/New Jerusalem.

The other six supporting devotionals, which correspond to the six surrounding gems around the center gem, are as follows:

  1. The July 9th devotional talked about how King Cyrus and King Josiah were prophesied hundreds of years before they were born, even being called by name (1 Kings 13:2; Isaiah 44:28). King Josiah was important in my guidance as an example of a righteous king who repented greatly when he found out he and his people were wrong in their beliefs and actions. He brought Israel back to God without needing proof or calamity. All he needed was hearing what God wanted from the lost Book of the Law (2 Kings 22:1-20; 2 Chronicles 34:1-33).

    King Cyrus was also referenced in guidance I got through the books of Ezra, Nehemiah, Haggai, and Zechariah, which all talk about rebuilding God's temple after the exile in Babylon. King Cyrus, though a foreigner to the Jews, was God's instrument and shepherd in getting them back to Jerusalem and providing the resources they needed to rebuild the temple (2 Chronicles 36:22-23; Ezra 1:1-3, 5:13, 6:1-5; Isaiah 44:28). This parallels what is going on now with getting God's People to recognize what New Jerusalem is and building this new temple through Christ and the New Covenant. The link to my ring is that I am like King Cyrus because of my role to promote this, and I am like King Josiah because I too changed my ways after seeing the truth.

  2. The July 10th devotional talked about how God's power, grace, and peace exceed understanding. It alludes to how the New Covenant works and how different the true workings of His kingdom are compared to what the church thinks. See The True Gospel and Imposters for details.

  3. The July 11th devotional was about "entropy" - the shame or turning inward that goes with failing to witness and speak for God. Speaking up and not hiding is a duty for all Christians, especially for His ministers. We should have no shame whatsoever to speak what is right and true.

  4. The July 13th devotional talked about resurrection, especially of everyone in what the church calls The Rapture. I also noted the numbers for July thirteenth (7/13) are symbolic of a Full (7)  Promise (13) (see The Meaning of Numbers for details). The Rapture is God's guaranteed, full promise to those who are saved by Christ, but there are misconceptions and false guidance about it.

  5. The July 14th devotional was about the good seed of God's word being sown by Christ and the children of His kingdom who took His seed and were regenerated. It pertains to how we are literally regenerated or reborn when we become saved (see The True Gospel and Imposters for details), and because God is still sowing His good seed with live guidance. The church needs to accept that to yield the full crops of destiny that He has planned in New Jerusalem.

  6. The July 15th devotional was titled "Learn By Example" and talked about Apostle Paul's example of being a Christian in 2 Timothy. This goes with what I learned about "rightly dividing" or "correctly handling" God's word (2 Timothy 2:15) and understanding the difference between what was recorded in scripture as opposed to what God meant when He stated it.

    "Learn by example" also refers to listening to the testimony and experience of others. Sometimes a good deal of faith is required to commit to change, because I know the feelings of uncertainty and not wanting to change or leave the ways of the popular church.
I also noted the devotional for November 7, the day I got the repeated devotionals, was about "Biblical irony," which goes with the hard truths and mysteries that were revealed in my years of ministry. Ironic that so many who believe they are saved, actually are not, because they did not fulfill or keep the terms for the New Covenant (see The True Gospel and Imposters for details). Ironic that the church thinks they know how God and the spiritual world works, but really need to know much more.

All the details of the devotionals syncing up with my ring had me scratching my head. With the seven repeated devotionals (sent again because of a "computer error" as the ministry apologized later), the ring is a constant reminder of how real God is and what to remember:
  • God - the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - and His plans of preparing His People.

  • What God wants - His new temple built, His Bride - us - and His People as a whole, ready with the knowledge of righteousness.

  • God and His ways are much more than our reasoning can comprehend. Don't lean on your own understanding, but on His.

  • Never shy away from our roles in Christ. Be a light to the world and seek to fulfill your duties as ministers and Christians.

  • Hold on to God's promises, no matter how great the troubles are.

  • Remember God's live guidance is just as important as scripture.

  • Learn by the example of others. Rejecting witness testimony keeps you confined to a smaller part of the truth, which leads you to the wrong conclusions, just like the majority of the world has done by rejecting witnesses to the gospel. However, much of what I teach is also about discerning good guidance and teaching from bad, so we must also examine witness testimony closer to see who we should listen to.
Sometime later in 2011, I got another surprise from this ring. During this time I had gotten guidance that one of my duties is to bring HD high definition detail to the truth. It refers to guidance and truth, like I share, that give further details for the truth, God's kingdom, and how to interpret scripture and guidance.

What does that have to do with the ring? I found inside the ring's band the words "BLU RAY" inscribed (see photo below). It is the trademark for the jeweler, Hy Spreckman and Sons of Chicago, now called B Spreckman Company[6.4.2], but the interesting thing is, Blu-ray (BD) video discs are the high definition standard that replaced DVD video discs. The Blu-ray video standard announced in 2002[6.4.1] came many years after Hy Spreckman registered their BLU RAY trademark in 1994[6.4.2]. Spreckman still as of this writing even has their BLU-RAY trademark prominently shown on their Facebook page[6.4.3].

BLU RAY inscribed on Ty's ring

All these correlations in my anointment, signet ring, guidance to numbers, scripture, and other things point to my predestined role to build New Jerusalem and God's People. These were all encouragements I very much needed to continue fighting for God and His kingdom despite many failures and great hardships with spiritual warfare and false guidance.

In fact, I now understand these predestined workings of the physical world go with how "the earth helped the [Bride], and the earth opened its mouth" to get rid of the enemy's flood of false guidance in Revelation 12:16. We're in an age where we cannot blindly trust spiritual teaching or guidance, even if they come from long-established ministers or churches. The enemy has many strongholds in the church and world that were made over thousands of years, so God moves things in the physical world to speak and save His People as well (Revelation 12:16).

I kept in the fight and now after more than ten years, I feel like Martin Luther King, Jr. who in 1968 was discouraged not seeing progress for civil rights after more than a decade of demonstrations and protest[3.1.32]. My disappointment with progress is similar, because I see the lack of change in the church and world since I started at the end of 2008.

And though I believe I wasted much time and energy following false guidance, I was still guided by God through it all, learned much, and can keep the knowledge and truth I learned. This is the kind of path, most, if not all of the church is walking and has been walking for hundreds of years, except I noticed after years of fighting for greater truths, much of the church fails to accept when she is wrong and continues to support incorrect doctrine.

Being serious about doctrine or teaching is important, but it needs to be correct teaching. The ability to admit when one is wrong and change is more important for our well-being as individuals and a People of God.
