I frequently visit the area around Point D’Entrecasteaux and actually brought a rock home from the beach that a storm pushed up onto the beach recently so I did some research into the name and God encouraged me through it and I believe it will encourage some of you too.
As I write it is December 7th but On December 5th/6th, 1792 two French naval Frigates came close to the coast at my favourite beach and named it Point D’entrecasteaux after the name of Rear Admiral Antoine Bruni D’Entrecasteaux who captained the “Recherche“. The other vessel was named the Espérance captained by Jean-Michel Huon de Kermadec. These two ships were sent by French King Luis XVI in search of a lost expedition of another two frigates captained by one Jean-François de Galaup Lapérouse.
D’Entrecasteaux reached Table Bay, Cape Town on 17 January 1792 and from there sailed to Tasmania then into the Pacific to New Caledonia and then west to Indonesia before heading for the south west corner of Australia where we live. They first sighted land as I said and named the point after D’Entrecasteaux before sailing on to the area now called Esperance in Western Australia before going across to Tasmania again.
Okay there’s the history part. They never did find Lapérouse –It was found later that his two ships had been wrecked on a reef off the island of Vanikoro near New Guinea
On November 14th I brought a rock home from a beach near point D’Entrecasteaux. I left it in my car for nearly two weeks and then put it under my desk to rest my feet upon it as it is really smooth and cooling on tired hot feet.
The very next day after putting it under my desk I visited Stephen Jone’s blog and read….
Three years later, the Coronation Stone was moved from Westminster to Edinburgh (Scotland) from November 14-29, 1996. The Coronation Stone represents the divine right to rule, because the kings of Judah stood upon that stone during their coronation. When Jeremiah brought it to Ireland, it was used for the same purpose. It was later moved to Scotland and finally to England (1296), and the British monarchs continued the same tradition.
Deleted: Finally, in 1996 the stone was returned to Scotland after 700 years, and the move was overseen by Prince Andrew. The name Andrew means “manly.” Scotland’s patron saint is Saint Andrew. The prophetic word we received was that that the divine right to rule was being transferred from the kingdoms of menand given to “the saints of the Most High”
This absolutely blew me away!!
On Sunday November 14th, 2021 I found a type of Coronation Stone!! And moved it to our house in Manjimup where I placed my feet upon it on the 29th November.
My Ancestry is Scottish on both sides –My mother is a Watson from Banff, northern Scotland and my biological father was Donald Andrews!!
I found out that I was the son of an Andrews in January 1995(aged 34)….
On December 7th, 1996 I married Carmel Henley from London, England 25 years ago today.
So the Stone got my attention to say the least! God was using us as some kind of prophetic illustration for the revelation given to Dr. Stephen Jones and his team.
Back to the Story
The Coronation stone corresponds prophetically also to the Stone in Daniel 2 which is cut out of the mountain without human hand or power but by My Spirit says the Lord and it destroys the kingdoms of the Beast.
In the days of those fake kings who think they are descended from the Merovingian bloodline of Jesus and Magdalene –“the Great God” shall set up and establish a kingdom that has no end defeating the Great Reset. (See Daniel 2)
It is true that we believers are Kings and Priests to our God with Jesus being of the order of Melchizedek – a priest forever according to an endless life. We have been given the right to rule and to reign as kings with The King of Kings and Lord of Lords Jesus Christ.
The French vessel ‘Esperancé’ speaks encouragement
The Esperancé was in the area of Western Australia named after her from Dec 9-18, 1792. The safe harbour there saved the two ships from being totally wrecked by a storm.
In French Esperancé speaks to us today as we face the storm.
Esperancé means: hope, expectation, promise hopefulness and expectedness
But it also carries these other meanings below….
hope against all hope
When I read this last night(6thDec)I immediately had the words “good hope by grace” come to me.
2Thess 2:16 Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has loved us and given useverlasting consolation and good hope by grace, 17 comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work.
Of course this salutation by Paul comes straight after speaking about how many will fall away and believe the lie being condemned along with the wicked. Paul was encouraging them to stand fast….and he spoke into their hearts HOPE!
We can be reminded and encouraged that God has given us everlasting COMFORT or consolation and GOOD HOPE by Grace.
Not just hope…but GOOD HOPE!! It is STRONG CONSOLATION and a BETTER HOPE….it is strong HOPE because it is not dependent upon our efforts but on His GRACE ALONE!!
In the time we live in –like that described by Paul in the verses above this one….we need this “good hope by grace” this “bonne espérance” which is an anchor sure and steadfast which enters the presence for us behind the veil.
HOPE AS AN ANCHOR
When the ships Esperancé and Recherche sought refuge from the storm that was tearing them apart they went into a protected bay and dropped anchor there.
“While the Frenchmen were still in that dangerous area, on 12 December(1792) a violent storm descended upon them, and both ships were nearly wrecked. Fortunately, however, they found an anchorage where they were able to ride out the worst of the gale. Landings were made here on the mainland, and the locality was named in honour of Legrand, who had spotted the anchorage, and the ship he was on, Espérance” source
In a storm an anchorage and a good anchor will save you from being dashed upon the rocks or from being blown out to sea and becoming lost either way. God through His Word Jesus has spoken His promises to us. Jesus Himself is the Promise and the Word…who also lives inside our hearts through faith. He anchors us in the safe harbour–→FATHER GOD.
Heb 6:17 Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, 18 that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.
When God confirms His promises to you, you have strong consolation….not just consolation but a DOUBLE DOSE! Strong medicine!!
You have good hope by grace and strong consolation!! Jesus in your heart(in your boat) is that good hope by grace and also that strong consolation or comfort as well that gets you through the storm.
But God is also speaking through Esperance and saying Hey you people in Western Australia hang in there!! Ride out the worst of the gales in a safe refuge that I will lead you to. They found an achorage!! They were able to ride out the worst of the gales!! And it is not just for us in Western Australia…or those in Esperance but also specifically CAPE TOWN and those in the nations around the globe!!
19 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast,and which enters the Presence behind the veil, 20 where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.
Our Jesus has already anchored us in the safe place–under the shadow of His wings, in the Secret place of the most High El Elion!! Hallelujah hahahahahahahaha!!Oh the joy hits me!! Jesus has gone ahead and anchored us—He ran on before us and made sure for us….SURE AND STEADFAST!!
This anchor we have!!!
Say it dear one!!–“I HAVE JESUS AS MY ANCHOR IN THE FATHER’S HEART”….I am safe in the harbour of Father’s care and provision….I am going to ride out this storm with Jesus in my boat anchoring me in Father’s will.”
We can “hope against all hope” as the French “espérer contre toute espérance” means—bringing to mind Abraham who contrary to hope BELIEVED…..
Rom 4:16 Therefore it is of faith thatit might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all 17 (as it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations”) in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did; 18 who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, “So shall your descendants be.” 19 And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. 20 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, 21 and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. 22 And therefore “it was accounted to him for righteousness.”
We have good hope by grace….we are are held by the same faith that held father Abraham up….the Jesus who held him holds us too. The promise is sure and steadfast because of Jesus–the Father’s word inside of you and me….We are in the presence of Him whom we believe—anchored there right now through Jesus our forerunner behind the veil–where He took us and where we dwell now–UNVEILED–IN HIS PRESENCE–FACE TO FACE WITH GOD….THE mighty one WHO calls those things that be not as if they are–in the same spirit of Faith that is in Jesus—-and in us..by Jesus…..He is always giving us life for all deadness and causing us to HOPE AGAINST ALL CONTRARY SITUATIONS which we find ourselves in……contrary to hope we are caused to BELIEVE!!! BELIEVE!!!! BELIEVE!!! BELOVED BELIEVE!!! AND AS YOU DECLARE YOU BELIEVE YOU shall become the father of many nations!!! —At this time–out of the darkness of the womb shall come many people to birth inside of faith in Jesus Christ…Souls saved and people coming alive in Him.
SO SHALL YOUR DESCENDANTS BE!!!!
Name them friend….so shall Joshua be!! So shall Phoebe be! So shall your descendants be!!! They shall come through. We shall not waver –like a ship tossed about–but shall be strengthened by STRONG CONSOLATION AND GOOD HOPE BY GRACE….giving thanks to God for what we do not see in the natural but believe in the spirit…….and we are fully convinced….by this strong consolation and good hope by grace that what God has said shall come to pass.
A prophetic flow began as I wrote…
So be not alarmed and be not anxious about it My child for the days of your captivity are ended and the days of your release have come upon you…for the proud and the boastful have met their day and you shall rise and they shall fall–for have I not said that you shall walk with Me on your high places. I delight to do this, I delight to lift up the needy and to carry them upon My shoulder’s for you are even My sons and daughters I love you as My very own Son…so again I say to you–be not afraid!! Trust in Me and what I have said and do not doubt it. The river is wide and looks hard to cross but it is when you put your feet into it that it stops flowing from upstream. So I will lead you and you shall triumph for My faith shall carry you and you will see it.
