Minister Ty Alexander

I was brought out of a secular life very unexpectedly and suddenly when I started ministry 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 my first book.

Through much of my first years in ministry, I had to deal with both good and false guidance in myself as well as in other ministries and the church. After all, in the early years of learning I got much of my knowledge from the established church and other ministries, both locally and online.

However, it soon became apparent that God led me into a new life of ministry to learn the difference between good and bad teaching, as well as to understand and teach things in more detailed and complete ways. I saw how the church and people that learned from erroneous or false doctrinal resources became blinded, because they accepted too much teaching without proper evaluation. It makes it so that even decades of studying does little good to make you a teacher who teaches correctly when you're learning and accepting the wrong things.

God led me through much spiritual guidance over the years to correct what is wrong with the church's and world's knowledge, and now I have over ten years experience sorting through both good and bad spiritual guidance and teaching. It gives me much better discernment of what is good and true.

God also allowed me to get the truth out of even false guidance, 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. However, that requires our acceptance of being in error and to change from it, which is something I found the church often does not do very well. People often persist in bad and false teaching even after being confronted with much evidence. It isn't just because of stubbornness, but I learned there are also spiritual reasons for this blinding.

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. You don't want God to say you are without discernment, like He accused His People of in Isaiah 27:11.

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 name and logo were even divinely inspired, as we will see.

As I said before, it was late in 2008 when I felt the need to start a new life with the Lord and start ministry. Then about a month later, on December 1st, I left work later than usual and saw in the southwestern night sky, big and bright, the waxing moon and two stars in a striking configuration (photo below). I'd never seen it before, but I thought it looked like a draftsman's compass. And I strongly felt it was speaking something important to me about naming my future ministry.

Later, I also connected it with the scripture of Joel 2 as one of the signs and wonders in the heavens for our time, foretold by God thousands of years ago when He said, "I will display wonders in the sky and on the earth..." (Joel 2:30; Acts 2:19).

The crescent moon and stars I saw, or actually the planets of Venus and Jupiter, inspired the notion of the 3rd Compass and logo (below). In my first book[3.2.1] of 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 (see a stellar reconstruction of the moon and stars at bottom).

Many years later, I found out a waxing moon represents growing towards maturity and fullness, since it grows towards a full moon. This went with my ministry's main goal of teaching God's people towards realizing the same kind of spiritual growth. I found it interesting that it is the opposite of the waning crescent moon, which symbolizes dying or moving towards death, often associated with Islam.

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, since I was drafting up further details about God's kingdom and the spiritual world.

This symbolism further went with my part in revealing important details about how salvation in Christ truly works, so the waxing moon of the heavenly sign also represents going towards fullness of knowledge of salvation in Christ.

I used the simple 3rd Compass logo for some years

until I was ready to make new business cards in 2014. I felt I had to update the logo at this time to include the Bride. The Bride, Church, or God's People is a very important part of this ministry, because a main goal is to prepare God's People for the Lord. The Bride is also called New Jerusalem in Revelation 3:12 and 21:2 and Hephzibah in Isaiah 62:4, which means "My delight is in her."

In Revelation 12 the Bride is shown with her feet above the moon, "A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars; and she was with child; and she cried out, being in labor and in pain to give birth." (Revelation 12:1-2).

This prompted me to place the Bride over the moon in the 3rd Compass logo (below), but notably, a week before I worked on the new design, I was led to Psalm 45 from a discarded book I found on the road. It was important for the logo because Psalm 45:9 describes Christ's Bride at the right hand of God's throne in gold of Ophir. Apparently, God brought important symbolism to my attention at the right time, so I made it a point to use gold trim in the Bride's gown in future designs.

The Bride being at God's right hand in Psalm 45 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 2:33-34, 7:55-56; Romans 8:34; Hebrews 12:2). Note my reference to Psalm 110:1 here as it will be important later.

Furthermore, the gold of Ophir was well known to be the purest at the time[2.820.5], which would represent a high degree of Godly refinement. That also goes with the 3rd Compass symbolism of bringing greater detail to the truth since knowledge is also getting refined.

The Holy Spirit is another important topic for this ministry and teaching about salvation, so the Bride's dress has a fire flame design to symbolize how the Holy Spirit is a part of us once we are saved in Christ and that its coming in power appears as "tongues of fire" (Acts 2:1; also Matthew 3:11; Luke 3:16).

I also added a cross to the logo design so it'd be clear everything went with Christ. 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 when Satan tries to persecute her, "And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent" (Revelation 12:13-14). The wings and flying to safety refer to how people are given protection when they are righteous and truly belong to the Lord.
"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint" (Isaiah 40:31).
Originally, I did not use a church name in the logo. I only used the 3rd Compass name for ministry, but in 2014, I legally formed a church and thought 3rd Compass Church did not sound like a good church name. Eventually, I was guided to choose Christ Hephzibah Church because Hephzibah is God's Hebrew name for the Bride and His People need to remember her Hebrew heritage and fellowship.

The 3rd Compass name is still important, though, and is this ministry's operational name. 3rd Compass originally was a metaphor for God. That's how I introduced the name in my first book's testimonial, but 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 before in guidance and understood it referred to God in the Holy Trinity, because He is both 1 and 3 at the same time, since 1+1+1 = 3. There is also further meaning in 111 that goes with Jesus's first coming and the Holy Spirit coming to us in completeness[], so 111 encapsulates the wholeness of the Trinity becoming complete with Jesus's coming, death, and resurrection, since before His death "the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified" (John 7:39, also John 16:7).

3rd Compass equating to be 111 and God, 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 values of 3rd Compass or all the linked guidance. And if the 111 reference weren't enough of a stamp, then look at how 411 and 651 are also represented in the 3rd Compass name.

When I looked at the gematria values for 3rd Compass, I also saw that 411 is its Latin value. 411 is the phone 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, which is its Old English gematria value. 651 is also 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. A word or short phrase having three gematria values that have meaning and even link to my location is extraordinary. Most words or names don't have values with any meaning in them, much less three.

Another amazing stamp of God's authenticity for my life of 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 in my NASB Study Bible was on page 1101[2.820.5]. That 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 many other physical things so they are made just right to fit guidance with numbers, prophecy, and other things many, many times[3.2.19,, 3.2.11], such as guidance with the meaning of the numbers 111[] and 213[] aligning with the pages of my NIV Bible, so that a two page spread (shown at bottom) in Jeremiah started and ended on verse numbers 1:11 and 2:13 exactly[1.2.1]. 213 is another number I was given much guidance about that symbolizes the end of our current age before Christ's second coming. I will speak more about that later.

The alignments with the page numbering and Jeremiah go with my role to speak for God as Jeremiah did. It refers to how God's People today are in darkness and using broken wells just like in Jeremiah's time. I was even anointed as Jeremiah was on March 5, 2010, when 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. But now I believe "the word" I should not doubt that the Lord meant is more specifically Exodus 34:10, which a pastor brother sent me on June 6, 2015, saying, "This is the promised word for you."

Exodus 34:10 reads, "Then God said, 'Behold, I am going to make a covenant. Before all your people I will perform miracles which have not been produced in all the earth nor among any of the nations; and all the people among whom you live will see the working of the Lord, for it is a fearful thing that I am going to perform with you'."

This word has been and continues to be fulfilled in all the wonders and signs revealing my calling, like shown on this page, and in the testimony I give of the truth, especially of the "fearful thing" of how the enemy is in the church.

The woman praying for me also told me I was given the power to break chains through my witness testimony and said after touching my lips, she said, "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.

That wouldn't be the last amazing alignment God would give for me related to my ministry and logo. In 2019, I read Earnest L. Martin's book, The Star of Bethlehem - The Star That Astonished The World[3.1.31], because I felt it had important information for an update of the ministry logo.

I found Earnest's book when I was researching Christmas and the birthdate of Jesus to update my article on God's holidays. Earnest's conclusions reinforced guidance I got that Jesus was actually born on Yom Teruah/Rosh Hashana and not Christmas. He came to that conclusion when he could only find one astronomical alignment in the time of Jesus that fit with what others said about the sign of the woman of Revelation 12. They noted it could be a real heavenly sign involving the constellation Virgo the Virgin aligning in specific ways with the sun and moon.

I won't go into the details here, but Earnest found the real astronomical alignment pointed at the moment of Christ's birth. I also saw how the moon was important in pinpointing the exact time for the alignment. It was similar to the timing of the moon constellation I saw in 2008 that named this ministry.

Both real world, heavenly signs were given at the exact right times to give meaning to spiritual guidance. If you've studied astronomy and astronomical alignments, you can see how significant the timings were because just a matter of hours can throw off alignment significantly.

When I understood this, I realized I left work that evening in 2008 at just the right time to see the moon and planets in the correct configuration to inspire me. The significance of Earnest's work also prompted me to change the Bride and cross in the logo to more accurately reflect the constellation Virgo and sign of Revelation 12.

I made the Bride stand more like traditional depictions of Virgo and moved her slightly above the moon, since the real alignment in the sky for the sign of Revelation 12 has the moon offset from Virgo a slight distance, though it is still beneath her feet as described in Revelation 12:1.

Then I moved the cross to the Bride's left hand where she holds a branch of grain in traditional representations of Virgo. This is significant for us because Christ is our Righteous Branch (Jeremiah 23:5, 33:15).

I thought that was the end of amazing alignments for the logo and ministry name, but when I was updating this article I saw that Isaiah 11:1 goes with the 111 I brought up earlier and also talks about the Branch, "Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse, and a Branch from his roots will bear fruit". That verse talks about Christ's future coming as the Branch of David (Jesse was David's father).

All these alignments with astronomical signs, number meanings, Bible verses and their numbers, and even how pages are numbered give concrete, physical evidence my life and ministry are pre-destined by God. Simply amazing! But these alignments are just a few of many more I have gotten.

Back to the number 213 - On December 10, 2009, many months after I kept seeing 213 pop up, I received an email from a ticket vendor for a coming concert tour of the Celtic Woman Irish music group. This was the first time I heard of them. When I went to their website, I was dumbstruck to see when the mouse pointer hovered over the photos, it sprouted a leaf graphic that I used in designing my business cards a month earlier. It was the exact same graphic. A very strange coincidence, I thought, as I took out a business card and compared the graphic to the one on their website. It was the very same almond shaped leaves interspersed on swooping, curly vines.

Then after I bought two concert tickets, I got another surprise. The total for two tickets, taxes, fees and an additional charity donation I decided to tack on, came out to be $213.33. "Two-thirteen?!" I exclaimed, because I was already given that number along with 111 many months before. I didn't know the full meaning for these numbers at the time, but I did know they had to do with the "Last Days" or end time events because of things and scripture related to them.

I was going to just buy the Celtic Woman tickets and go about my business, but the 213 link got me to look again. I decided to go to the store and use a coupon I was saving to get one of their CDs. The only one I found was their Christmas album, so I took it to the check-out counter and gave the clerk my coupon. The final total came to be $2.13

"What?!" I thought, "Two-thirteen again. How can this be? What in the world are you telling me, Lord?"

I knew as a logical and scientifically inclined person that the chances of all these spiritual and real-world elements aligning like this was minuscule, nearly impossible, especially two final bill amounts with coupon and other last minute additions coming out to be two-thirteen. So with these very strong nudges, I listened to Celtic Woman's music intently and found much of it spiritually moving. Their beautiful voices are angelic and inspiring. However, God wasn't done with my experiences with them.

On the next Sunday, December 13th, 2009, I went to church service and found they changed the background decorations on the stage to use white hanging fabrics that reminded me of the five members of Celtic Woman at the time. I was also amazed to see the fabrics were laid out at different heights that matched the various heights of the Celtic Woman performers. The reference to them and the rest of my guidance was eerily accurate, so I paid extra attention to the sermon for anything that popped out at me.

The only part that stood out was when the pastor talked about Isaiah 9. It is a prophecy written in the past tense about the future coming of Jesus. It reads, "For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace..." (Isaiah 9:6).

It talks about Christ coming as a child and son and also clearly states that He is God by His titles. It is written in the past-tense to emphasize the absolute certainty of this prophecy[3.1.30]. It was guaranteed to happen, and so I thought all the guidance related to 213 and Celtic Woman also had to do with a guaranteed promise. But what exactly is the promise or promises?

I didn't know and still don't know the complete details, but I did think all this meant I had to try and get the people of Celtic Woman saved into Christianity, so I sent them all copies of my first book[3.2.1] hoping they would see the bigger picture of reality. The books would have gotten delivered to their Ireland headquarters just before Christmas in 2009, but other than that I haven't a clue what happened to them or whether they had the intended impact.

I continued my life of ministry and much later, I found out I was even given the number 213 in 2005 or 2006 before I believed in Christ. 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.

Limited Edition Poster, Print 213 of 675

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 in Ephesians 6.

Ty's armored Triumph Rocket III motorcycle

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, and went with the 411 and 651 phone analogies I found in the 3rd Compass name.

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 detail with my former Ford pick-up truck is the artwork design on it. There is also a crescent moon on it, except it is a waning moon - opposite of the waxing moon that started my life of ministry. A waning moon represents going towards death, and 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 proved 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 for me to evangelize for Christ.

These many physical and numeric alignments related to my path as a minister were all out of my conscious and even subconscious control, since I cannot manipulate language gematria values, my truck's license plate (the plates were never changed since I bought it, but I did choose "ARMORED" for my bike plate), the alignment of my Bible pages, or other physical things that were orchestrated to align years before I was aware of their significance and even centuries before I was born.

Further Proof of Predestined Anointment 11/14/2019 9:27 PM
On August 28, 2010, a few months after the woman anointed me like Jeremiah, 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. But 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. I expected my first book to finance my new life and ministry, but it did not generate much income, and I was still 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 things 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 popular 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. On November 7th, a few days after I got the ring, I received seven daily devotional emails from a 3rd Party ministry that were repeated from July. 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, more pinkish 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 most of the church thinks. See The True Gospel and Imposters for details about what the church often has wrong about salvation in Christ.

  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 as well.

  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, the next age, and afterlife.

  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 and world.
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 another physical reminder of how real God is and what to remember:
  • God and His plans of preparing His People at center.

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

  • God and His ways are much more than our reasoning can comprehend. Don't lean on your own understanding, but on His (Proverbs 3:5).

  • 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.

  • God's live guidance is just as important as scripture, though we need much wisdom and discernment to understand what is from God and what is false.

  • 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 knowledge, 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

Many years passed and I thought there was nothing new to be given with the ring and guidance related to it, but on March 20, 2020 as I critiqued a Christian brother's writing , the verse numbers for Hebrews 7:12, which he used in a tithing section, jumped out at me. I hadn't noticed it in my own writing about the tithe, but now I saw the verse and numbers connected with the ring and how the devotionals and center gemstone centered on my birthday, 7/12.

Hebrews 7:12 reads, "For when the priesthood is changed, of necessity there takes place a change of law also." It speaks of Christ's priesthood and the New Covenant Age bringing a change of law for God's People. This verse linking to the signet ring and devotionals by its numbers, reinforces my role in building New Jerusalem and teaching how God's laws have changed for our age.

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.

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 or popular ministers and churches.

Darkness 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. Now I also recognize these predestined movements of the world are some of the wonders on the earth from Joel 2 that I brought up before, where God said, "I will display wonders in the sky and on the earth..." (Joel 2:30; Acts 2:19).

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.

I noticed after years of fighting to bring the church and world out of sin and bad beliefs, there has been little change. I now know there are many reasons for this, which I speak about in other documents. But one reason is that the churches and ministries who promote seriousness of doctrine often also blindly keep to false and harmful ones.

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. To show proof of this with more examples of God working real objects and people, I will share my experiences from October 2011, which shows again how real destiny is, or rather that we are predestined for purposes by God before we are even born...
"[Lord], Your eyes have seen my unformed substance, and in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them." (Psalm 139:16)

And the Lord said, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you. I have appointed you a prophet to the nations." (Jeremiah 1:5)
On October 13, 2011, I found my nine year old son had an odd object in his pocket. I thought he was stashing away candy, but he told me it was a flash drive he found outside school. I told him to give it to me so I could find the owner and return it.

I put the flash drive in the computer and browsed the files. The first ones I noticed were lyrics and other files for an old 80's song, "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey. Then in another file, I saw the flash drive belonged to someone named Kim or Kimalisa Fate. A big smile came over me because I knew it was no accident that "Fate" brought me Kim Fate's files. I knew God had something to say through this.

I didn't know His intent until I found a story on the flash drive that Kim wrote. It was about a tragic time many years ago when her husband suddenly passed away when she was a young mother and expecting another baby soon. It was her darkest day, she said, but the amazing thing was at the end of the story.

She struggled on the horrific day of the funeral to collect herself and get her children ready. After the funeral, she was so tired, she collapsed on her bed and started sleeping. Then she was startled by someone sitting next to her on the bed and an intense bright white light, like nothing she'd ever seen before, turned on over her head - a light from an angelic presence, she thought.

She was so scared she didn't move. Then she felt a supernatural kiss on her forehead, like fireworks she said. "A kiss that was like no other, a kiss that twinkled and the nerves in my forehead was tingling, like how fireworks go over and you see the sparkle, not a kiss when you kiss someone."

It wasn't like any kiss she felt in life. She knew in her heart it was her husband come back to visit her, so she opened her eyes, but only saw a shadow dissipate before her. She cried and laughed at the same time, rejoicing, and felt peace and happiness come over her. It was her husband and God's love to comfort her when she needed it most.

I knew Kim's story getting to me in this way was about love from God and keeping focus on the bigger picture instead of only on the parts that interest us, like the wonder of miracles and power of having God in our lives, because at this time I was getting a lot of guidance about the differences between the church and world's notions of love and how things actually work.

A couple weeks later, on the 28th of October, I got more guidance about the theme of destiny, Godly orchestration, and love. We've all heard of star-crossed lovers and how all the stars seem to line up when we fall in love.

That day, I was having a late breakfast in the dining room when I was struck by an image made from shadows on the wall facing me. I clearly saw a heart hanging from a branch and corals underneath (photos below). It shocked me because I knew there wasn't a heart hanging around my house. Also during this time, I had been receiving a lot of guidance about love as I said, so I knew the image was a perfectly timed sign from God.

The shadows were made from sunlight and potted plants that my mother kept by the window. She is the only one that handled the plants, but somehow they had grown and were positioned in exactly the right way to make the shadow scene on the wall in that moment.

Normally, I'm not in the dining room at the right time to see shadows on the wall nor did they ever make a meaningful picture before, but this day everything lined up to reinforce the things God was revealing about love in weeks past. I noticed just a few days later, the leaves of the plants kept growing and changed the shadows so the picture was no longer the same, which shows further that God had timed everything correctly so I could understand the guidance, much like the 3rd Compass moon constellation and other examples above.

God's amazing level of control isn't the most important thing to see here, though. The important information is conveyed by the shadow scene, which is a parallel to a lunar eclipse analogy I got from spiritual guidance years earlier in 2009 and 2010. That guidance spoke about how the church and people are blind to the full truth because of their worldly mindsets and excessive focus on love and celebration.

The lunar eclipse analogy noted how the church and people allow worldly or earthy thinking to cast a shadow on the truth, which is represented by the moon and that it reflects sunlight, which symbolizes God's truth and wisdom. But when the earth or symbolically, worldly thinking, moves between the sun and moon (photo below), they cast a shadow on the moon, which creates a lunar eclipse, and symbolically God's truth is blocked out or overshadowed by earthy thinking.

The shadows on the wall on October 28, 2011 were made from sunlight on green plants, which symbolize God's wisdom and life, respectively. They represent true wisdom and Godly life, but the world and church are focused on the shadow heart (their worldly notions of love and God), which is only a shadow of the real thing.

Without the real transformation and maturation of walking in the actual truth, the church and world are only grabbing temporary and fuzzy, shifting shadows of God's wisdom and not living truly righteous lives or becoming truly saved and transformed. This is a reason for why so much sin and wrong teaching is found in the church and secular world.

The world and church have been focusing on shadows of God's kingdom and righteousness, which is the meaning of the corals in the shadow scene above. It goes with the sorrow expressed in Lamentations 4:7 where corals (or rubies in some translations) refer to the former purity and glory of God's People.

That purity and glory will only return by changing bad teaching and ways into good teaching and ways that truly bring us into God's kingdom and eliminate sin. But because people are so focused on the wrong notions of God and love, they are trapped by imposters that are shadows of the real thing.

This problem isn't entirely people's or the church's fault, though, because their false beliefs blind them, so they cannot see the full truth. The church, especially, has to realize this and get rid of those false beliefs and bad teaching. People have to let go of the shadows and phantoms of God and love because it gives them false happiness, hope, and security, or at best, it gives them only temporary versions.

That's why all this goes with Kim Fate's experience. God's love and peace are real, powerful and tangible, just like Kim experienced in her time of need. Sometimes the church and people are so focused on the wonder of spiritual or supernatural things that it is blown out of proportion. Prophecy is especially attractive to people in both the church and secular world. However, excessive focus on the wonder and power of spiritual things allows a tunnel vision or blindness to come that prevents people from seeing lies, bad teaching, and false versions of prophecy and spiritual gifts.

The Journey song, "Don't Stop Believing," on Kim Fate's drive goes with all this to note we should still keep faith in God and Christ despite lies and imposters of the real thing saturating the world. We can still believe in destiny, soulmates, and other romantic things, because I've seen God work the world that way, but we must keep a healthy perspective and not misconstrue the truth or accept bad teaching or imposters of the real things.

The things I shared here are extraordinary examples of God working the physical world with spiritual guidance to give a message. Many people and objects were orchestrated years and decades in advance from my mother choosing and placing the right kinds of plants by the window, to Kim Fate's files reaching me through my son, to Kim's very name syncing to the theme. Even the alignment of Bibles, numbers, and the stars spoke to my destiny. All of it pre-planned and pre-destined for me to reveal a bigger picture for God's purposes. How can anyone not believe in the reality of God, destiny, and what I talk about after so much correlation?

See my novel's "Where the fairytale is real" page for more physical evidence of my predestined life of ministry, connection with Ireland, and more lunar analogies to show the truth.
