Context of verses 1-13 is that God promised the birthright of holy blessings to go through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob into the descendants of such.
v. 1 "islands" = the British Isles, Ireland, Scotland, etc and Australia & New Zealand. Add note (Matt.1:21 The name of Jesus would be proclaimed by the tribes of Israel as a light of salvation to all the world. The JE sound in Jesus is not naturally spoken in most Gentile languages. They must look to the light of the gospel of Jesus preached by English speaking preachers.)
v. 6 "a light to the gentiles" = Christians with the name of Jesus.
v. 8 desert heritages = change to "desert/desolate inheritance".
(18-20% of Australia is officially desolate desert. But about 35% of the Australian continent receives so little rain, it is effectively desert. 70% of the nation is desolate/uninhabited.)
v. 12 from the north and west and one other direction.
The other direction: The Vulgate says "Land of Australia"! Australia is the Latin/Vulgate word for "south"!
"The Persians" in AOB. Change to "Australia/South".
Captain Cook was commanded by King George III to find the "Great South Land".
In 1770, James Cook sailed along and mapped the east coast, which he named New South Wales and claimed for Great Britain.
Other people/nations had came to Australia before Captain Cook. I'm not saying that he was the first. But I am saying that this was another historical connection to the word "south" in relation to the tribes of Israel and Australia.
King George III had given the voyage his blessing and made available the resources of the Royal Navy in hopes of both scientific and strategic advances. He and the British government were eager to discover and annex "the Great South Land" long believed to lie in the uncharted waters of the Pacific.

HISTORY OF THE THRONE
David's Throne was established in Jerusalem 1042 BC when he reigned over the twelve tribes of Israel. God had promised to preserve the Throne of David over Israel unto all generations. Following the history of the Kings of the "House of David" who ruled over Judah the end came with the wicked King Zedekiah. The Throne was transferred to Ireland 583 BC when Zedekiah's daughter married into the Royal line of Ireland to Eochaidh who was a descendant of Judah through the line of Zarah.
Great. Transferred again to England in 1603 when King James VI of Scotland became King James 1 of England and also of Scotland. God has fulfilled his word as the Throne has never lacked an heir, male or female to occupy the Royal Office signifying His authority over the kingdoms of this earth. (Jeremiah 33:17)

This is proven by the many British customs, traditions, symbols, emblems, ceremonies and laws of succession (Num 27:8) which are shared with the Kings of Israel detailed in the bible. One example being the Israelites custom to crown their Kings on or by one particular stone (2 Kings 11:14 and 23:3) and the people shout "God save the King" (1 Sam 10:24; 2 Sam 16:16; 2 Kings 11:12). This is still our custom today with all the Kings and Queens of Great Britain (Ireland, Scotland, England) being crowned upon the same stone for 2500 yrs dating back to 583 BC when Tea Tephi married the Irish King Eochaidh. Edward the First had a coronation chair built in 1296 AD to accommodate this stone which still sits in Westminster Abbey today, with Queen Elizabeth II crowned on it in 1953. In fact, if you watch the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II you will be amazed to see almost the entire ceremony following the exact same traditions as recorded in the bible when the Israelite Kings were crowned. And yes they shouted "God save the Queen" just like our forefathers before us. This stone the English call "Jacob's Pillow" with its battered surface, large crack and two iron rings attached almost worn through, all bear witness to its long migrations. Wear which must have occurred long before 583 BC during Israel's long wanderings in the desert since historians know it’s only been moved 3 times since then, which is in fulfilment of the prophecy that the throne of David would be overturned 3 times (Eze 21:25-27). Israel to Ireland in 583 BC; Ireland to Scotland in 506 AD and lastly Scotland to England in 1603 AD where it will remain "until he come whose right it is; and I will give it Him" when Christ comes to sit upon the throne of David (Luke 1: 31-33).
The Australian flag
The Australian flag was born in 1901, when Federation occurred. The Flag denotes the global/southern location of Australia by the use of the southern hemisphere constellation of "the Southern Cross" (5 stars) in the right half side. (The brightest star in the Southern Hemisphere.)
All the stars have seven points except for the small star which has five points.
Also, the Federation Star (sometimes referred to as the Commonwealth Star) directly under the Union Jack has seven points representing the States and Territories of Australia.
Six points of the Star represent the six original states of the Commonwealth of Australia, while the seventh point represents the territories and any other future states of Australia.
Earlier last night, the thought of the 7 candles in Rev. 1-3 came to me before seeing this.
History of the UNION JACK (Flag of the UK)
The Flag of England had been the Ancient Hebrew flag of a vertical red cross on a white background.
Union Flag of the United Kingdom 1606-1801 (England and Scotland)
Completion of the Union Flag of the United Kingdom in 1801 with Ireland combined.

With the progressive merging of the people of the British Isles under one Throne (Throne of David), the formation of the Union Jack completed in 1801 when the flags of Scotland, England and Ireland combined. This coincided with the growth of the British Commonwealth of Nations under Queen Victoria, prophesied in Genesis 35:11. God foretold that Britain (Ephraim) would become a great nation and a company of nations. This would happen in the last days. Australia is a part of that company of nations (Commonwealth). Biblical Jacob whose name was changed to Israel said "let my name be named on them" (Genesis 48:16) when blessing Joseph's sons Ephraim (Britain) and Manasseh (America). Remarkably, the name of Jacob or Jack is attached to the flag of the descendants, who have grown into a multitude upon the earth. An ensign of God's faithfulness taken to the ends of the earth that the world might see his handiwork.
The three colours of blue, red and white were used in the Tabernacle for the curtains, according to God's specifications. The white linen represents the white robes of righteousness given by the Lord to his people. Red signifies the blood covenant fulfilled in Jesus. Blue is the national colour of (ancient) Israel, and of God's right to rule over men. In Numbers 15:38-41, Israel was instructed to wear a 'ribband of blue' as a remembrance to keep God's Commandments and to be Holy throughout the generations.
The false flag of Israel is only blue and white, which removes the blood of Christ.
13 stars represent the original 11 states of the confederate nation + 2 states that they captured.
But I believe spiritually that they also represent the 12 tribes of Israel with Joseph having become 2 tribes (Manasseh & Ephraim) resulting in 13.
The US dollar bill also has 13 stars. The 13 stars represent the original 13 colonies of the USA. But I believe that spiritually, they represent the tribes of Israel. No coincidence that there's 13 stars both the original US flag and the Confederate flag.
