1)We thank and praise God for a wonderful time of ministry in Sydney over the past weekend. Pr Daniel along with a team from CTFM ministered in Plumpton, Penrith and Blaxland in Sydney at YWAM, also in a Brethren church and a Full Gospel church. People who came for the meetings were mightily touched by God’s word and the powerful testimonies of what God is doing in Australia in this hour.
One lady stated, “ I was wondering whether or not to come for one of the meetings, but thank God I ended up coming for all 3 meetings. I was challenged and now I feel so uplifted up and encouraged”. Many young people who were at the meetings were also greatly impacted.
There was two main high lights of the meeting:
1) A young girl shared with us that her mother had wanted to abort her, but because someone was willing to adopt her, praise God she was not aborted and lived. This young girl was so happy that Pr Daniel has been advocating for people to be given greater access for adoption. This should encourage people not to abort in Australia. She also told us that her adoptive parents went through a very hard time to get the rights to adopt her.
Rick Warren Speaks about His Son: “Matthew had a Tender Heart and a Tortured Mind; He was a Brilliant Kid”0 Comments Published by Office 2 April 15th, 2014 in Bible, Christian Church Issues, Courage, Family, Healing, Prayer, United States of America
The megachurch pastor, and his wife, Kay, share memories of their youngest son, Matthew, who at the age of 27, committed suicide a year ago.
(Lake Forest, CA)—It was almost a year ago when Rick and Kay Warren received the unimaginable news that Matthew Warren, 27, the youngest of their three children, had killed himself with a self-inflicted shotgun wound at his Mission Viejo, California, residence. (Photo via ANS)
Matthew had bought the gun illegally over the Internet and used it to shoot himself and yet, rather amazingly, the pastor, was able to forgive the person who sold Matthew the gun.
“Someone on the Internet sold Matthew an unregistered gun,” Pastor Rick, the senior pastor of Saddleback Church, Lake Forest, California, tweeted to his nearly one million followers shortly after he received the terrible news. “I pray he seeks God’s forgiveness. I forgive him.”
Warren then linked to Matthew 6:15, which says, “But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.”—NIV
In the dream, Jesus looked deeply into her soul and said, “Believe in Me and pray, Yulia, and I will save you.”
Filled with despair, a Russian Buddhist woman attempted to take her own life. But Jesus appeared to her in a dream offering new hope and peace, and the beginning of a new life in Christ. (Photo via God Reports)
According to a report by SEND International, Yulia was raised by educated Buddhist parents living in Russia. By local standards, they were making it. Her family regularly visited the local shrine to worship and pay their respects to Buddha. Although her father was an engineer and her mother a biochemist, Yulia failed to get an education and did not enjoy her job cleaning houses.
When her father died suddenly, her mother slid into a spiral of depression, alcoholism, and abuse. Day after day, fights and arguments ensued and there were more and more problems. One day, when Yulia was 21, her mother—in a fit of drunken rage—told her to leave. Her mother’s last hateful words were, “Just leave. I don’t even care. And if you die, I won’t even cry.”
MORATUWA, SRI LANKA (ANS) — Evangelist Will Graham shared the grace and hope of Jesus Christ with 33,100 people in Moratuwa, Sri Lanka, over the weekend. The three-day Celebration of Grace with Will Graham was held Feb. 7-9 at the Moratumulla Methodist Church Grounds.
According to a news release, local organizers referred to the Celebration as the largest evangelistic outreach ever held in the largely Buddhist nation. In the days leading up to the event, local Christians handed out approximately 25,000 invitations to neighbors, co-workers and commuters at the train station.
“Money cannot change the human heart. Only God can change your heart,” Graham told the gathered crowd, his voice carrying across loud speakers that had been set up in a one kilometer radius around the venue. “Maybe you are dealing with death, and you’re not sure where you’re going to spend eternity. Tonight you can be assured. Salvation is waiting for you.”
(Saudi Arabia)—The following is from a worker in the Middle East who wishes to remain anonymous:
For the last 30 years, people have smuggled Bibles into this Islamic country in the Arabian Peninsula in suitcases, been increasingly caught and deported and the Bibles destroyed. Six years ago, I decided that if I could make one contribution to the Gospel, I would import them legally.
I was a neighbor to some very powerful sheiks. As my Arabic steadily improved, I became more interesting to them. I would meet them regularly for conversation over tea. One of the sheiks, older than I am, invited me weekly to his house, as I was friends with his son and a cousin. They often asked my reason in living in the Arabian Peninsula. I operate a bona fide business providing services the locals cannot.
Love is patient
In conversation, as we talked about the Qur’an, I would mention the Injil (Gospel) and the position of the Bible in the Qur’an. It says that we should read the Torah, the Zabur (Psalms), the Injil—all of God’s books. So I challenged them to read the Injil, saying that we in fairness could not dialogue about them unless all of us have read them, as I would have an unfair advantage as the only one in our group to have done so. The Qur’an does not speak of only one volume; it is a multi-volume work. In my view, many Muslims have been disobedient to the Qur’an by not reading all of the volumes God has given us. In humility, as an outsider who has read all the books, I don’t want to enter into discussions until they also have read them.

Let’s face it, Russians are different: Tsarism, Stalinism, Putinism all set Russia apart and have given the West a superiority complex. But, like the rest of us, Russians like to boast about the high points of their culture and history – Tolstoy, the Bolshoi, Sputnik and all that – which they did to awesome effect in the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics at the weekend.
Not even the most expensive – and possibly most impressive — Olympic extravaganza to date, however, could obliterate the carping about gay rights that has accompanied the Sochi games. Everyone from UN boss Ban Ki Moon to a little old grandmother in Berlin has been wagging the finger or waving placards at Russia’s terrible homophobic laws.
“More than 200 leading international authors including Salman Rushdie, Margaret Atwood and Jonathan Franzen criticised the anti-gay law as well as blasphemy legislation as a ‘chokehold’ on creativity, in an open letter published in Britain’s Guardian newspaper,” according to one report.

Despite the abundant attestation for child marriage in Islamic law, most non-Muslims remain completely ignorant of it, because Islamic apologists in the West routinely deny that it exists, insisting that Aisha was 18 when Muhammad married her, and claiming that the incidence of child marriage in Muslim countries is due solely to cultural factors (they hope you don’t notice that those cultures are Islamic).
Those who point out that child marriage will come West with Muslim immigrants receive in response only ridicule and scorn as “bigots” and “Islamophobes.” But note that this story is from Australia, not Yemen or Iran or Saudi Arabia. And while Ahmad Chamma has been prosecuted, watch for pressure to amount to lower the legal marriage age, on the grounds of “multiculturalism” and “tolerance.”
Few things are more abundantly attested in Islamic law than the permissibility of child marriage. Islamic tradition records that Muhammad’s favorite wife, Aisha, was six when Muhammad wedded her and nine when he consummated the marriage:
“The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death)” (Bukhari 7.62.88).

Do people really have a right to bigotry in a multi-faith, multi-religious society?
By Eric Metaxas, Christian Post Contributor – February 1, 2014|
If I asked you to describe the state of Christianity in Europe, you’d probably answer “not good.” And there’d be ample reason to do so. Most of us are familiar with the depressing statistics regarding church attendance in Western Europe and Scandinavia.
But there is more to Europe than Britain, France, and Sweden. And in Central and Eastern Europe, a different story is being written.
This story was the subject of a recent First Things article by Filip Mazurczak. In it, Mazurczak reveals to readers what is going on in former communist societies such as Hungary and Croatia. For instance, while the European Union notoriously omitted any mention of Europe’s Christian heritage in the preamble to its constitution, Hungary’s new constitution “ties Christianity to Hungarian nationhood.”
By way of additional contrast to the secularized E.U., the document “defines marriage as the union of a man and woman, [and] speaks of the rights of unborn Hungarians.”
An even more encouraging story is unfolding in Croatia. In December, two-thirds of the population there voted to amend the constitution to define marriage as the union of a man and a woman. For a nation aspiring for E.U. membership, this definitely went against the grain.

Churches — both legal and illegal — are booming in China. Some view them as a welcome counterpoint to rampant materialism. Others see ghosts of a colonial past.
It was my last Sunday morning in China, my last chance to experience church in a Communist country where, as far as I could tell, Christianity was basically forbidden. It was 2011, and I had been in Beijing for five weeks to study Mandarin. In that time, I hadn’t seen a single cross, church or Bible. In fact, I read at customs that you couldn’t bring in more than four Bibles from abroad. I had no idea that I was in the third-largest Christian country in the world.
In Liangmaqiao, a Beijing neighbourhood that’s home to the foreign and the wealthy, I arrived at the 21st Century Hotel, where the Beijing International Christian Fellowship (BICF) holds services. The parking lot was full of Rolls-Royces and BMWs bearing Jesus-fish decals. At the building entrance, two parishioners acting as doorkeepers asked me for ID — by government order, only foreigners may attend church. I had forgotten my passport, so the doorkeepers made me sign a slip of paper attesting to my alien status.

London – Church of England priests will not be allowed to bless gay and lesbian weddings, or marry someone of the same sex themselves, according to new guidelines issued by the church, which is struggling to heal divides over homosexuality.
Same-sex marriage becomes legal in England next month, posing a dilemma for the Church of England, which is the mother church of the world’s 80 million Anglicans and maintains that marriage is between a man and a woman.
England and Wales legalised secular same-sex civil partnerships in 2005. A church working group suggested last year that clergy allow gay and lesbian couples to mark and celebrate marriages held under the new legislation, as well as civil partnerships, in a religious service.
1/27/2014 – Clarion Call by Matt Barber
This past week America honored both the life and noble work of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., a Bible-believing Christian minister who did more to advance the cause of race-based civil rights than perhaps any other person in recent history.
Regrettably–and as they do each year–the same flock of opportunist “LGBT”-activist vultures quickly swooped in, picking the live flesh from MLK’s character-based “dream,” to advance their own behavior-based nightmare.
In what amounts to a sort of soft racism, this mostly white left-wing faction has, over the years, disingenuously and ignobly hitched its little pink wagon to a civil rights movement that, by contrast, is built upon the genuine and noble precepts of racial equality and humanitarian justice.
What was MLK’s position on the homosexual lifestyle and so-called “gay rights”? While he said little in public on the issue, what he did say made his viewpoint abundantly clear. Unlike the “LGBT” lobby, I’ll let Dr. King speak for himself.
1) The meetings in Perth, WA over the past weekend were described by some as, “Powerful meetings with the anointing and presence of the Holy Ghost!”
Yes and amen as this is so true!
On Saturday night Pr Daniel led a prayer meeting with some intercessors from Perth. As the group entered into deep intercession for Australia, and in particular the upcoming Senate Re-Election in WA, many started to travail and cry out to God for Godly leaders to be elected into Parliament. There was a real sense of “Lord, give us Australia,” as His Word says, “Ask of Me and I will give you the nations as an inheritance.
The prayer meeting ended with a great feeling of victory in the name of Jesus!
On Sunday Pr Daniel ministered at Dream Life Church with Pr Steve Davis. Here too, the presence of God was awesome as Pr Daniel spoke on the Prophetic Anointing, Apostolic Anointing and Calling. The people were mightily blessed.
I thank God for people like Pr Steve who is bold take a stand for Jesus. Today, many Ministers of the Gospel back right off, if what God is calling them to do will bring disrepute to their reputation. Let us all pray for these dear servants of God to rise up in the name of Jesus.”
The Rise Up Australia Party Senate Re-Election Campaign Rally on Monday at the Old Melbourne Hotel in Perth was very exciting and challenging. People who attended the meeting and heard the speeches from Jane Foreman, RUAP lead Senate Candidate, and Pr Daniel Nalliah the National President were greatly impacted.
There was a real sense of victory right throughout the meeting with people clapping and standing in agreement to Keep Australia Australian. Many volunteered to help on the 5th of April as they were greatly challenged how RUAP policies have already had a great impact in the nation.

While reflecting on a powerful quote from the lips of Catherine Booth, I was struck by the fact that the latest strategies of the American church, strategies to avoid conflict with the world, are not only wrongheaded. They are actually diametrically opposed to the strategies we should be following.
Let me explain what I mean.
Catherine Booth was the co-founder of the Salvation Army, along with her husband, William Booth, and for decades the Salvationists were known for their fearless, uncompromising preaching of the gospel, their sacrificial living and their compassionate care for the hurting and the poor.
Catherine was the more fiery preacher of the two, and in her sermon “Aggressive Christianity,” she exclaimed, “Opposition! It is a bad sign for the Christianity of this day that it provokes so little opposition. If there were no other evidence of it being wrong, I should know from that. When the church and the world can jog along together comfortably, you may be sure there is something wrong. The world has not altered. Its spirit is exactly the same as it ever was, and if Christians were equally faithful and devoted to the Lord and separated from the world, living so that their lives were a reproof to all ungodliness, the world would hate them as much as it ever did. It is the church that has altered, not the world.”
We thank and praise God for opening the doors for the CTFM team to visit Palm Island, QLD on a very special God given assignment to bring Reconciliation & Healing in between Indigenous peoples and others who have called Australia home.
A group of 21 intercessors led by Pastor Daniel from CTFM arrived in Townsville, QLD and then proceeded to Palm Island on the ferry on Thursday 20th March. The group was joined by intercessors in Townsville led by Indigenous Pastor David Gela and the whole team set sail to Palm Island.
Right throughout the 2 hours the ferry rocked with worship, prayer and intercession over the waters of Australia. There was intense prayer and repentance for all the wrong we have done in our nation in the past, followed by much more prayer and prophetic declarations for the future.
Later that day at the meeting for Reconciliation, the CTFM team washed the feet of several Indigenous people and asked them forgiveness for the wrong done to their forefathers. As we humbled ourselves and washed their feet, there were many tears of love & joy.
Many of the Indigenous Elders stated, “We have never had the white man wash our feet.” They were absolutely shocked.
One elder stated, “When the former PM Kevin Rudd said sorry, we were happy, but we knew that it was more a political statement. However, what you people have done has brought real love and healing to our community. Thank you so much for coming all the way.”
Then, we all stood in a circle and sang “Bind us together, Lord bind us together.” As we started singing this song, the rain started to pour very heavily again and continued until we left. Since the Island had not received hardly any rain for a long time, the people on the island called it ‘an act of God’.
Yes, indeed, it was definitely the hand of God. In Deuteronomy 28:12, the Word of God speaks specifically speaks of God sending the rain as a blessing when He is pleased with His people. Isn’t that amazing. Glory to God.
“May the Lord open for you His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand.”
LISTEN: Rev. Bill Owens and the Coalition of African-American Pastors Call for the Impeachment of Attorney General Eric Holder for Trying to ‘Coerce States to Fall in Line with the Same-Sex Marriage Agenda’0 Comments Published by Office 2 March 26th, 2014 in Christian Church Issues, Family, Homosexuality, Politics, United States of America
A coalition of African-American civil rights leaders and pastors announced a campaign to gather 1 million signatures to impeach Attorney General Eric Holder for attempting to undermine states’ authority to “coerce states to fall in line with same-sex marriage.”
Speaking at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, the Coalition of African-American Pastors (CAAP) is calling for Holder’s impeachment for “attempting to impose ‘same-sex marriage’ throughout the nation despite federal law, rulings by the U.S. Supreme Court, and state constitutional amendments to the contrary,” reads the online petition.
“What we have in Attorney General Holder is a man so political in his zeal to redefine marriage that he is willing to run roughshod over the rulings of the Supreme Court, binging federal law, and the United States Constitution along with the constitutions of a majority of states,” the Rev. Bill Owens, founder and president of CAAP, said in a statement.
This comes as Holder announced on Tuesday that state attorney generals are not obligated to defend laws in their states that ban same-sex marriage if they do not believe in such legislation.
