Today Monday 22nd June is a very special day for us and Iâ€™m sure for all freedom loving fellow countrymen in Australia, as it marks 2 years since we won the court case in the Supreme Court of Appeal for Freedom of Speech and Religion after a 5 year battle in the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal and then the Supreme Court. Iâ€™m sure we will celebrate this monumental day for years to come in remembrance of the victory against a bad piece of legislation which almost took away our rights to declare Jesus as the only way to the Father in heaven!
On a personal note, itâ€™s also a special day that brought great joy to our family as the Lord blessed my wife and I with our 3rd child who turns 2 years old today!Â So every year at her birthday we will give God the glory for helping us stand our ground for His righteousness and justice in our nation of Australia to see this great victory for the Kingdom of God!
I want to take this opportunity along with my family, the CTFM board and leadership team, to say a â€˜BIG THANK YOUâ€™ to all who faithfully stood with us shoulder to shoulder, even some who were willing to go to jail with me for not compromising the truth of the Word of God! Thank you so much for your Christ-like love, prayer, financial (to pay around $ 600,000 in court charges) and moral support, including hundreds of text messages, phone calls and emails from around the nation and across the world. A very special thank you to those who faithfully attended the court hearing over the period of 5 years.Â
I want to thank all of our families and CTFM team for standing in support with myself and Daniel Scott during this very challenging 5 year legal battle, in spite of the several telephone calls and many emails we received at our CTFM office threatening to firebomb the office and my home, in addition to death threats. We thank our Lord and Savior for protecting and leading us through this trying season! â€œIf God is for us, who can be against us?â€ Romans 8:31
A very special â€˜THANK YOUâ€™ to the Islamic Council of Victoria and the Equal Opportunity Commission for bringing this complaint against us! It has certainly helped us to promote the Kingdom of God through Catch The Fire Ministries across Australia and the World! Additional thanks to the many secular and Christian worldwide media networks which reported on the court case, such as the Australian Media, BBC, CNN and CBN.
This increased the volume of communication with CTFM around the world with many turning to our website and requesting to join our email database. The number of hits on the CTFM website topped the 1.5 million mark with an average of 2500 hits a day, including a few instances of 25,000 hits in a single day!
The Spirit of God has opened a tremendous door of opportunity to witness to people in Australia and around the world via the website. We have seen many people saved, healed, delivered, set free, and blessed by the miracle working power and life transforming love of Jesus Christ! Once I had an email from a lady who wanted to accept Jesus as her Lord and Savior, but did not want her family to know about it, so we led her to the Lord through the website.Â Then we asked her where she lived so that we could encourage her to attend a local church. I was surprised when she wrote back that she lived in Damascus, Syria, a Muslim nation in the Middle East!
We feel like God has linked us with the Body of Christ across the nations as thousands and thousands of people receive the prophetic Word of God every day via our website. All Glory to God. We thank God for all people created in His image and likeness. The dear Muslims in our nation and around the world are our friends and not our enemies. The devil is our enemy. We pray for the salvation of every single person!
Once again THANK YOU so much for your faithful support of Catch the Fire Ministries!
Many blessings, Your brother in Christ,
Pastor Danny Nalliah
