In late 2008, I felt the need to start a new life with the Lord and start ministry. On December 1st, 2008, I left work at night and saw big and bright in the southwestern sky, the moon and two stars in a striking configuration I'd never seen before (at right). I thought it looked like a draftsman's compass. I felt it was speaking something important to me and had to do with naming my future ministry.

Later I also connected it with the Scripture of Joel 2:30 and Acts 2:19 as one of the signs and wonders in the heavens for our time.

The crescent moon and stars, or actually the planets of Jupiter and Saturn, I believe, inspired the notion of the 3rd Compass and logo (at right). In my first book in 2009, I spoke about how the 3rd Compass actually refers to God and Christ as the Compass Who encompasses all things. The logo was a prominent feature of the book's cover.

Later on as I conducted ministry, I got more guidance from the Lord that the 3rd Compass logo goes with bringing out and refining deeper, more detailed knowledge of the truth and God's Kingdom. That also goes with the symbolism of a drawing compass to draw or draft up and, especially, to draw circles and arcs, which often represent covenant in guidance from God - a rainbow, which is an arc is a symbol of one of God's covenants (Genesis 9:13-17).

This circle/arc symbolism further went with my part in revealing the truth about the New Covenant of salvation in Christ2.

When I was making new business cards in 2014, I felt I had to update the ministry logo with the Bride in it. The Bride is a very important part of this ministry because of the teaching about the full truth and refining God's People to become the perfected Pure Bride or New Jerusalem.

I found an image made by a 3rd-party whom I didn't know showing God's Wed Bride from Revelation 12 standing on the moon, pregnant with her crown of 12 stars, and dressed in a wedding gown trimmed with gold.

A week before, I was led to Psalm 45:9, which describes Christ's Bride at the right hand of God's throne in gold of Ophir, so I recognized the image as exactly matching guidance from the Lord. Her being at God's right hand also matches where Christ's Bride would be with Him since Jesus is at God's right hand (Psalm 110:1; Matthew 26:64; Mark 14:62; Acts 2:33,7:55; Romans 8:34; Hebrews 12:2). Furthermore, the gold of Ophir was well known to be the purest1, which goes with guidance that gold and pure gold represent the highest levels of Godly refinement. That also goes with the 3rd Compass symbolism of bringing greater detail to the truth since knowledge is getting refined.

When I used the image I found as a template to update the logo, I got a big surprise when its dimensions were already sized exactly right to fit my high resolution logo document. The Bride Wife was proportioned perfectly for Her to stand on the old logo's moon as Revelation 12:1 describes Her with the moon at Her feet. This was another example of God preparing things well in advance, which I've seen many times in guidance. It is a hallmark of God's Fingerprint to work the physical world in precise ways to match His guidance2.

Then I added the glowing cross, which the Bride is reaching for because that is what we do as we walk life with the Lord. Christ is the ultimate Prize of the spiritual race we run and His example and likeness are the ideals we need to constantly reach for in our Kingdom lives with Him.

Later, I added the wings to the Bride to correspond with how She gets the wings of an eagle and flies to safety in Revelation 12:14. How that happened is another example of God preparing things well in advance for me, because I found a dove in my old clip-art library that had wings spread out to fit with the Bride's exact standing position. I had the clip-art library for about twenty years, well before I was saved by the Lord, and it was the only bird image in the library that fit the Bride in the new logo. It's also interesting the bird was a dove, which goes with symbolizing the Holy Spirit.

The Bride receiving wings and flying to safety goes with how people are given protection because of their righteous acts3.

Originally, I did not use a church name in the logo. I only used the 3rd Compass name for ministry, but in 2014 I formed a church and I thought 3rd Compass Church did not sound like a good church name. Eventually, I was guided to choose the church's name to be The Church South of Saint Paul, which goes with its location.

However, you probably noticed the 3rd Compass name is still in the logo. I was guided to keep it in because of what it stands for - God as the beginning and foundation, which is why 3rd Compass is under the church name and cross as a literal and visual foundation.

In 2015 and 2016 during my study of gematria guidance (the numerical value of words), I was very surprised to see that the 3rd Compass name had God's Fingerprint in it by its English gematria value, 111.

I was given that number years ago in guidance and understood it to referred to God as the Holy Trinity because He is both 1 and 3 (1+1+1) at the same time. There is also further meaning in the number that goes with Jesus' first coming and the Holy Spirit coming to us in completeness4, so 111 encapsulates God's wholeness in the Holy Trinity becoming complete with Jesus' first coming, death and resurrection.

3rd Compass equating to be 111 and God, as I mentioned before, puts His stamp of authenticity on the name and this ministry as being truly anointed by Him. After all, I have no way of manipulating the gematria value of 3rd Compass or all the linked guidance.

Another amazing stamp of God's authenticity for this ministry was found when I was writing this information. I saw the page number for the reference notes of Psalm 45:9 about the gold of Ophir (page 1101)1 matched my reference to Psalm 110:1 above as I wrote about how the Bride and Christ are on God's right hand.

I've seen the Lord prepare Bibles, like my NIV and NASB Study Bibles, and other physical things so they are made just right to fit guidance with numbers, prophecy and other things many, many times2,4,5, such as guidance with the meaning of the numbers 111 and 2134 aligning with the pages of my NIV Bible so that a two page spread at the beginning of Jeremiah started and ended on verse numbers 1:11 and 2:13 exactly5. The level of detail and control God has over the world is simply mind boggling.
