Queensland FloodsPraying for flood victimsDear family and friends in Christ in Australia and around the World,

Many have asked Pr Daniel whether they could reprint or forward this article to others, so we are sending it again. Please feel free to do so in addition to the attached Christian Breaking News article from the Elijah List.

The above is a hot topic right now amongst many people, as Christians and non-Christians alike have been asking the question, “Is God punishing the people or is it simply a natural disaster?”
 
However, I have not personally heard many people ask the question, “Is it  the work of the devil?”
 
I am sure that even during the time of Noah’s flood many would have called it a natural disaster, until they all perished. We know this because when Noah warned the people as God’s spokesman, they did not receive his warning.  (Genesis 7:21-23)
 
Of course, there have always been many natural disasters throughout the world, but when the disaster is of the magnitude of what recently happened in Queensland, and when the secular media calls it ‘A Flood of Biblical Proportions’, we definitely need to take a good look and see whether this is more than just a natural disaster.
 
As I was recently getting my hair cut, my barber said to me, “Danny, I cannot understand why a loving God is punishing people.” My barber is a Christian, but does not go to church. In fact, I led him to the Lord a few months ago.
 
I promptly responded, “Suppose my daughter or son tell me that they are leaving home because they don’t like all the rules and regulations, but I tell them that the rules and regulations are because we love them and want to protect them from getting into trouble.  If they still choose to go, and I hear that they get into some trouble, would it be fair for them to blame me??”
 
He promptly responded, “NO.”

Then I told him that I believe that the God, who loves us so much, does not want to destroy or kill people. In fact, the Word of God says in John 10:10 that “Jesus came to give us life more abundantly!”
 
However, it is also clear that when we as a nation (Australia) have turned our backs on God and walked out of His conditional protection, the devil will definitely destroy us, for the Word of God also says in John 10:10 that “the thief (satan, the devil) has come to steal, kill, and destroy.”
 
It is time for us as a nation, starting from the Church, to genuinely repent and come back to a loving God, before we see the devil further destroy our land!
 
I would like to draw your attention to a conversation the devil had with God in the book of Job in the Bible. The Word of God states in Job 1:6-2:10 that the devil asked God to take His hand of protection off Job.  When God did so, the devil destroyed everything including Job’s family, but Job stayed faithful to God and therefore was protected.
 
This gives us a good understanding of when God’s conditional hand of protection is taken off (2 Chronicles 7:13-14), the devil has a field day. God is a God of love, but He cannot protect a nation when the people willingly walk out of His protection and turn their backs on Him.  Sadly, many Christians have chosen the path of just simply going to church on Sunday only. In addition, according to a recent survey, 85-95% of Christians pray for only 3-5 minutes a day. However, they spend hours and hours before the TV. How can God protect such a people??
 
I believe that this complex theological issue of ‘Is it God, the devil or simply a natural disaster’ can be best understood as: man’s sinful disobedience (Christian and non-Christian alike) forces the hand of God (His conditional protection) to be removed, thus allowing the devil to steal, kill, and destroy.
 
This multi-faceted process of the righteous judgment of God includes the involvement of all three – man, the devil, and God. 
 
I pray that this explanation from the Word of God will help you; but, of course, not all see eye to eye on significant theological issues of sin, grace, judgment, love and justice.
 
Have we as the Church done our part to stand in the gap and cry out in intercessory prayer and repentance to God for our nation of Australia? When did we last fast at least one meal and pray for our neighbour’s salvation and our nation??
 
When God told Moses that He would not go with Israel into the Promise Land as God’s people had turned their backs on Him, Moses pleaded with God and said that he would not move unless God moved with them.  Moses knew that if God did not move with them His hand of protection would not be there.
 
We as the nation of Australia (the Great South Land of the Holy Spirit) have been mightily blessed, but let’s not get lost in God’s blessings. Rather, let’s stay in God’s presence and ask Him to move with us to see our nation come back to Him. God is looking for a remnant to stand in the gap.
 
Would you be willing to do so??
 
Let me close by saying that I don’t have all the answers to the many questions I have received in the past several weeks, but one thing I do know for sure is that Jesus loves you and He wants to see every one of His lost sons and daughters, His beautiful creation, come back to Him. (John 3:16-17)
 
I pray the Holy Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ will lead you in this and all other relevant matters in the Kingdom of God! (Ephesians 1:17-22)
 
Your brother in Christ,
 
Pastor Daniel Nalliah

    Hi Ps Danny,

    You seem to quote an awful lot of Gods protection from the Old Testament. While I do believe that the Old Testament is very important to us as believers I also know that the work that Jesus did on the cross changed EVERYTHING regarding our relationship with God. Before Jesus there was no relationship. Jesus came for everyone to restore relationship with a loving father. He came regardless of our behaviour. God loves us regardless of our behaviour. We can not ‘earn’ salvation nor can we ‘earn’ protection. God gives his children good gifts. I know that God does not pick and chose which country/person he loves more, which country/person he will protect. Jesus came to do away with the Old Testament Law of us working to get closer to God. Again I say it is a free gift. A loving God who wants unconditional relationship will not one minute protect and the next minute look away and not protect.

    Regarding the recent flooding what about the Christians who lost everything? What if these Christians were the ones who are a Christian by your definition ie fasting, praying, repenting?

    When is there enough repenting?

    This world in the state that it is in now is not eternal. The world is spirrialing into decay waiting for the revealing of the saints. There will be earth quakes, flooding etc as the years go on, this earth as it is was not made to last forever.

    Regards,
    Melissa

    Come, let us magnify His name once again! The name above all names, to be feared and revered above all.. This word is a Delight and I stand in agreement. As I read, I was also reminded of a word in Prov that speaks of the people raging against God in times of disaster, but it is due to their own folly. I know He has a plan and a future for Australia, to prosper and not to harm, He works ALL THINGS together for the good of His precious children, all glory to our Lord Jesus, perfect in all His ways!

    With all the wonderful resources and priviledges and wealth we have as a nation, you would have to be living on another planet not to see that this country is spiritually and morally bankrupt. We need to be reminded of the words in Psalm 9 – “The wicked will be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” The redeemed people of God have the answer to see a turn around in this nation, but they need to come out of the woodwork of fear and apathy and speak out and not be afraid of criticism and rejection. Look at the people who govern us, athiests, humanists, panthiests, homosexuals, lesbians and those of satan’s camp of evil. They are very good at big-mouthing the devil’s agenda and promoting his cause. Let’s show them that we are a sheep nation that serves God and belongs to Him, and not a pack of stupid goats that do their own thing.

    Good afternoon, Pastor Daniel.

    If we truly believe in a loving God, of all the explanations for the floods, I suggest that your current email is the most plausible. When we don’t plug into the power of God, we have no lamp to light our path. Then we fall, and are cut down by the ruler of darkness. Our choice, not God’s.

    God bless you

    AUSTRALIA EARTHQUAKE & TSUNAMI PROPHECY – Dr Owuor

    There were two parts to it given on different days of the conference. They were transcribed direct from the recorded message from session 7 and session 1, with You Tube links to the audio & video versions of the same messages.

    Prophecy by Dr Owuor 03/08/10 (session 7) – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-QuaVfM8is < http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-QuaVfM8is>

    “The time is coming when the Lord is going to open Heaven over this land, and the Holy Spirit is going to manifest a lot of works, the healing of people, delivering of people, regardless of where. But listen precious people. There is an earthquake coming to this land. The Lord spoke with me about a HORRIFIC EARTHQUAKE, AN HISTORIC EARTHQUAKE TO VISIT AUSTRALIA.

    And I was there myself, I don’t know, I guess you know how the Lord speaks to His prophets. He puts me in the earthquake, I also ran for my life today and the buildings collapsed on me, so I know what people will feel like on that day. And then, on the western horn the north west corner of Australia, He pushed the ocean, the earthquake pushed the ocean. And I see a huge wave a huge high speed wave, its a mountain of water pushed by the earthquake.

    And the Lord said “THIS LAND MUST REPENT”. The time to engage in sexual sin by the beaches is over because the Lord has sent me here now. Remove false prophecy from the church. Especially false prophecy, that one must be removed because its confusing the church at this hour. I can only speak for the Lord and the Lord He is righteous. Again, there is going to be a historic earthquake now that I have said it here. I see the buildings collapse and people cannot get away, and I see a lot of deaths. Yesterday He showed it to me and today He spoke to me about it, just a few hours before I came when He slayed me, and I went to sleep and He showed it to me again. AND THEN THE EARTHQUAKE CAUSES THAT HUGE PUSH OF WATER, A MOUNTAIN OF WATER, LIKE SO MANY STORIES HIGH, AND PUSHED, A TSUNAMI IS COMING, PLEASE REPENT.

    DONT HANDLE THIS CARELESSLY LIKE THE PEOPLE OF HAITI DID.
    Please don’t do that.
    Don’t start prophesying on top of it He will strike you.
    The Lord has spoken period.
    Let us prepare for the coming of the King.
    He has healed people here, He has loved people here.
    He is a good God, He wants to love people, He wants to heal the land.
    But let us return to righteousness, because this is the moment for Christ to be enthroned in this land
    Even within the leadership, but let the church begin by repenting

    I have seen a horrific earthquake visit this land, TREMENDOUS HISTORIC, don’t handle this with carelessness, I warn you precious people, the Lord has spoken with me, don’t fool around with this one.
    Haiti fooled around
    The people of Chile fooled around
    Kenya fooled around
    Yushu China fooled around
    New Orleans fooled around before Katrina, 1 month and 9 days before when we sent the messages and they said people here don’t believe that because they say there are many satellites that watch this nation, but it came to pass.

    So don’t fool around with this, IVE SEEN A LOT OF DEATH AND PEOPLE BURIED
    These places He took where even the stairs hit me and buried me, so I had no way out, I had to be dug out, today.
    I am speaking as it has happened and when these things come to pass, then you shall know that the mouth of the Lord, He has spoken here. Then you shall know that the prophet of the Lord has walked here.
    Don’t take this carelessly, please I beg you, I plead with you.
    May the Lord bless you, that you may harken unto His voice.”

    Prophecy by Dr Owuor 31/7/10 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l6Hb5yUtvi8 < http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l6Hb5yUtvi8>

    “I have come to announce the controversy between Jehovah and the church in Australia, unless you repent it is going to be horrific. This is the eastern side of Australia … correct? Ive have seen the ocean failing to stop. Around all these places. Yesterday He showed it to me TWICE. He said “IF THEY DON’T REPENT, TELL THEM THAT THE OCEAN WILL FAIL TO STOP”. It is the same who went and warned Haiti, Chile and Yushu China, and Katrina 1 month and 9 days before it happened. Then everybody laughed and said `do you know how many satellites we have watching of the United States of America, it will not happen`. But on the day it happened, every word to the letter was fulfilled. Listen, why don’t you rebuke sin in your churches.”

    Dr Owuor taught on specific areas of repentance required for the Australian Church in order to prepare for the Lord’s soon coming:

    – repent from all false prophecy, messages designed to make people feel good rather than deal with their sin
    – repent from all types of sexual sin, including pornography, lust, and sexualised dressing
    – repent from the abuse of God’s grace, and the complacency & compromise with sin and the failure of leaders to rebuke sin
    – repent from preaching the prosperity gospel that focuses on an out of balance priority on money & riches now
    – repent from postmodernism, not believing all the scriptures of the bible are for today
    – repent from building the empires of men in the church, and build the Kingdom of God in the church
    – repent from preaching focused on improving lifestyle now, rather focus on preparing the bride to be without spot, blemish or wrinkle for Christs very soon coming
    – teach the centrality of God’s holiness, for without holiness no-one will see the Lord
    – leaders need to mobilise God’s people in repentance

    Although a strong word, Dr Owuor very much meets the conditions of a true biblical prophet as stated in:

    Duet 18, 22 “when a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not happen or come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.”

    Amos 3, 6 “If there is calamity in a city, will not the LORD have done it? 7 Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.”

    Prophet Dr Owuor has a proven record as a prophet to the nations, who prophesied the follow events:
    – Haiti earthquake of Jan 2010, 2 months before it happened, called the nation to repentance, 300,000 died
    – Chile earthquake & tsunami of Feb 2010, 13 months before it happened, called the nation to repent from sin, 1300 died
    – China Yushu earthquake of April 2010, 6 months before it happened, called them to repent from worship of idols and eastern religions, 2500 died
    – Kenyan murderous violence of 2007, 2 years before it happened, called them to repent from complacency with sin, hundreds died in ethnic violence & chaos, and many went into refugee camps
    – Global Financial Crisis which started in Oct 2008, 1 month before it happened
    – He also prophesied Hurricane Katrina, and the 2004 Asian tsunami

    God is asking for Repentance
    We must not think we can just pray this disaster away, but we must pray, preach and mobilise repentance in the church and nation. God is asking for repentance & holiness in His people in preparation for the soon coming of Christ.

    1. Personal – “let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”(1 Cor7,1) …”for without holiness no-one will see the Lord” (Heb 12,14), plus Gal 5, Col 3, Eph 3&4, Matt 5,6,7
    2. Corporate – “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, 14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land” (2 Chron 7, 13-14)
    3. National – “Now the word of the LORD came to Jonah the second time, saying, 2 “Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and preach to it the message that I tell you.” 3 So Jonah arose and went to Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceedingly great city, a three-day journey in extent. 4 And Jonah began to enter the city on the first day’s walk. Then he cried out and said, “Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!” 5 So the people of Nineveh believed God, proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest to the least of them. …..9 Who can tell if God will turn and relent, and turn away from His fierce anger, so that we may not perish? 10 Then God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God relented from the disaster that He had said He would bring upon them, and He did not do it.” (Jonah 3,1-10)

    Tell others

    1. Share His warnings – “Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 2 “Son of man, speak to the children of your people, and say to them: ‘When I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from their territory and make him their watchman, 3 when he sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people, 4 then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head. 5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But he who takes warning will save his life. 6 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.’ (Ezekiel 33,1-10)

    2. Signs of His coming – ““Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” 4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.” (Matt 24,3-8)

    Hi Jason and Danny,

    Praise and adoration to our awesome, majestice God and Redeemer.

    Yesterday as I was doing my devotions (Isaiah 2) I believe that the Lord brought to my mind the following need for His people and for our nation throughout 2001.

    He is calling His people across Australia to prayer twice daily, 7 days a week for all of 2011. The suggested times for this prayer are 8.00 – 10.00 am and 7.30 – 9.30 pm. The am time slot for people who are not at work, and the pm slot for those who have worked throughout the day. Of course, some may wish to pray during both time slots.

    Imagine the power this will engage for both God’s people and this nation. History tells us that revival only comes when His people fall on their knees with repentance and supplication. (2 Chronicles 7:14). The Lord revealed this verse to me in the early 1990’s (only a few years after my own salvation) and has continuously remained in focus until this day.

    The Lord’s Church has too readily allowed Satan his power. It’s time the Church woke up and realized that in Christ we are more powerful than any occultist. (1 Jn 4:4).

    The following are prayer points that the Lord has brought toi my mind:

    •our current federal leaders’ attitude to Israel
    •praise that our PM has publically acknowledged the work of the Church in helping the flood victims.
    •that all our leaders will acknowledge God and that He will open their eyes, minds and hearts to His Truth
    •Australia’s Indigenous peoples
    •praise for the work God is doing among the Muslims, here and overseas, and that Jesus will continue to reveal Himself to these individuals
    •prayer for the persecuted Christians in the USA and UK (yes, in these 2 countries!!) – loss of work and Uni positions because of their stand for God’s Truth
    •to have the Greens’ influence removed – pray foir each individual that Jesus will reveal Himself to them

    Finally, praise to our Lord for His grace and mercy over this nation, The Great South Land of the Holy Spirit, in the past and that He will continue this mercy and grace as His people rise up and stand in the gap. That on behalf of this nation His people will confess the sins of Australia, repent and seek His forgiveness.

    Our Lord God is faithful to His Word and promises; let us be faithful to our Lord and Saviour, Christ Jesus.

    Here’s a quote from yesterday’s devotion. “There is a blessedness for those who really love God and walk in obedience, for obedience is the ultimate sign or outworking of my love for God. Be encouraged. Be motivated. Be spurred on to love and good deeds by the great this that God has in store for you.”

    God bless you, and your ministery teams as you continue to walk in obedience and faithfully carry on your journey.

    Signs of the Times

    Beloved saints

    The month of December has provided us with two signs of the times which need to be noted. It is only in reading both that we gain an accurate understanding of the time we are entering into.

    Joe 2:30 And I will show signs in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
    Joe 2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD comes.

    In this month we have seen both blood and fire. One was a sign in the heavens and the other a sign in the earth. Both speak a warning and announce what is to come.

    On the first day of Hanukkah, a terrible fire broke out on Mount Carmel in Israel. It blazed for four days and 44 people were killed by the flames. Mount Carmel is usually associated with the prophetic. It is the place where Elijah slew the 450 prophets of Baal and the 400 prophets of the groves who ate at Jezebel’s table. Here He called on the people of Israel to decide who they were going to serve, Baal or the True God.

    Do you remember that in January I shared a dream where the Bride fled from a house on a mountain covered by forests when the fire began to burn right outside? At that time, the Lord said to me that he declared the end from the beginning, and, more than that, He declared the end of the year from the beginning! When the fire broke out on the densely forested slopes ofMount Carmel, I was immediately reminded that at the beginning of the year God had declared there would be a fire coming to the Church. The location of Mount Carmel suggests that the refining fire will be coming more specifically to the prophetic arena of the Body of Christ and that it will be for the purpose of dealing with the false prophetic and those who have eaten at Jezebel’s table and then ministered to the people of God from that unclean and idolatrous platform. The fact that what was announced in a dream at the beginning of this year, has now been announced in an event on the earth, tells us that the fire is at the door and will no more be delayed. The large number of 4’s associated with the blaze also indicates that it is now fullness of TIME for the Lord to suddenly come to His temple as Malachi 3 mentions, as a refiner’s fire and a fuller’s soap. I am going to quote here from that original article ‘Fleeing the Fire’:

    ‘When the call goes out that the fires are at the door, the Bride knows there is no time to lose and immediately leaves this House of compromise hand in hand with the Bridegroom – she leaves empty-handed because priests have no earthly inheritance- the Lord is their inheritance. AS she comes out from among them and begins the next leg of her journey with the Bridegroom, she encounters mockers on the porch.

    Jud 1:17 But, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; Jud 1:18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. Jud 1:19 These are those who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.

    2Pe 3:3 First, knowing this, that there will come in the last days scoffers walking according to their own lusts 2Pe 3:4 and saying, Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation. 2Pe 3:5 For this is hidden from them by their willing it, that the heavens were of old, and the earth out of the water, and through water, being held together by the Word of God, 2Pe 3:6 through which the world that then was, being flooded by water, perished. 2Pe 3:7 But the present heavens and the earth being kept in store by the same Word, are being kept for fire until the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.

    Because judgment begins with the House of God, the fire that falls is in order to bring separation between true believers and those who only have an appearance of godliness. Those who remain in the house of compromise and lukewarmness are appointed for the Refiner’s fire. It is shocking to realize that mockers and scoffers are found on the porch of the building that is called by many, ‘God’s House’, yet the book of Jude warns us of those who have wormed their way into the midst of the Church and pervert the grace of God. His description would better fit an unbeliever, yet he is describing people within the church! No wonder judgment needs to begin with the House of God and it is a judgment of fire, refining fire that will separate and clearly differentiate between the wheat and the tares.

    Mal 3:1 Behold, I will send My messenger, and He will clear the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, shall suddenly come to His temple, even the Angel of the Covenant, in whom you delight. Behold, He comes, says the Lord of Hosts. Mal 3:2 But who can endure the day of His coming? And who shall stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire, and like fuller’s soap. Mal 3:3 And He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver. And He shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may be offerers of a food offering in righteousness to the Lord. Mal 3:4 Then the food offering of Judah and Jerusalem shall be pleasing to the Lord, as in the days of old and as in former years. Mal 3:5 And I will come near you to judgment. And I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those who extort from the hired laborer’s wages, and turning away the widow, and the orphan, the alien, and not fearing Me, says the Lord of Hosts.

    God is talking about dealing with His own people both in this passage and in chapter 4 of Malachi. The Bridegroom is coming to that which is called the House of God and He is coming suddenly and without warning, just as the fire was suddenly at the door of the house in my dream. Depending on the state of your heart and life He is coming two different ways:

    Mal 4:1 For, behold, the day comes, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yes, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that comes shall burn them up, says the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. Mal 4:2 But to you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings;

    He is coming to refine and cleanse OR for those who fear Him, He is coming with healing and restoration. It will become abundantly clear who is really a servant of God and who is not.’

    It is abundantly clear from the dream and the fire occurring at opposite ends of the year that we have reached the end of a period of grace for repentance concerning involvement with Jezebel in prophetic circles. Expect God to move His hand in graphic and clear ways in dealing with those who claim to be His mouthpiece when in reality they are speaking on behalf of the wicked hand that has been feeding them lies. God is intent on freeing His Body from the snare of lying divination. When Jesus addresses this issue in Revelation 2, He calls it ‘the depths of satan’. Notice also what characteristics of His appearance are emphasized as He rebukes them:

    Rev 2:18 And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write: The Son of God, He who has His eyes like a flame of fire and His feet like burnished metal, says these things: …Rev 2:20 But I have a few things against you because you allow that woman Jezebel to teach, she saying herself to be a prophetess, and to cause My servants to go astray, and to commit fornication, and to eat idol-sacrifices. Rev 2:21 And I gave her time that she might repent of her fornication, and she did not repent. Rev 2:22 Behold, I am throwing her into a bed, and those who commit adultery with her into great affliction, unless they repent of their deeds. Rev 2:23 And I will kill her children with death. And all the churches will know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts, and I will give to every one of you according to your works. Rev 2:24 But to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not have this doctrine, and who have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak, I will put on you no other burden. Rev 2:25 But that which you have, hold fast until I come.

    WE are now at that moment when the Bride knows it is time to flee the house of compromise or suffer the consequences. There is a journey prepared for her with the Bridegroom and she must move on into what He has for her.

    The second sign which occurred in December was in the heavens, namely a lunar eclipse occurring on the Winter Solstice December 21st. The moon became blood-red due to a small amount of refracted sunlight passing through dust in the earth’s atmosphere while the moon passed through the earth’s shadow. The occurrence of this sign in the sky on this particular day of the pagan calendar immediately speaks to us of activity in the realm of darkness whereas the fire on the first day of Hanukkah identified it with events in the church.

    I have often heard the moon spoken of as a type of the church but I have to disagree because of a basic understanding of the properties of light ( I sent out an article called ‘Revealing or Reflecting’ on this topic in 2009 which I will forward to anyone who is interested). To explain briefly, natural light is composed of seven different wavelengths, as is seen in a rainbow with its seven colors. When light hits an object some wavelengths of light are absorbed and others are reflected. It is the reflected rays of light which we see with our eyes; for eg. A tomato reflects the red wavelengths of light and absorbs the other six colors. Glass appears colorless because it allows all the wavelengths of light to pass through it. So we see that the natural world which we observe daily is visible to our eyes because of the process of absorption and reflection.

    Gen 1:16 And God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day and the smaller light to rule the night, and the stars also

    The lesser light, the moon, rules over the realm of darkness. Interestingly, the sun is also a star and emits light because there are nuclear reactions taking place within it constantly. Stars are made from dust (as are we human beings!). Stars differ from one another in the amount of light they emit. However they all produce light. The moon however, only reflects the light of the sun. It has no ability to produce light within itself but gives light at night by bouncing off the sun’s rays. The lesser light rules the darkness – this is a picture of satan who also operates in the realm of the second heaven, by using the process of reflection. He has no light within himself and can only appear to be filled with light in order to deceive. How did satan transform himself into an angel of light? He used the principles of natural light. By reflecting the light and absorbing none of it, satan appears to the natural eye to be a being full of light. However, within him is deep darkness. There is a kind of darkness that masquerades as light. Paul mentions this when he warns people:

    2Co 11:13 For such ones are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. Did not even Satan marvelously transform himself into an angel of light? Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves as ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works

    So the sign of the blood moon on the winter solstice is telling us something about the realm of satan and what will be occurring in the season to come. An eclipse is caused by the earth blocking the light of the sun so that the moon can no longer reflect and appear to be full of light. It is seen for what it really is, a dark heavenly body. Earth in the Bible is a picture of the flesh or the adamic nature. In the season ahead, the works of the flesh will rise to such fullness that those who are masquerading as angels of light will no longer be able to ‘reflect’ the light but will be seen for who they really are. There will also be a rise in unashamed open practice of witchcraft and paganism and it will become abundantly clear who are of the kingdom of Light and who are of the kingdom of darkness. The kingdom of darkness may appear to have a covering of the blood but it is merely the meager vestiges of reflection bouncing off the dust particles in the atmosphere and will not fool us. No longer will their words appear to have a ring of Truth and Light for the darkness and amount of flesh being displayed will prove the emptiness of their claims.

    Stars (which are present in the heavens all the time but are seen most clearly against a backdrop of darkness), produce light within themselves. During a lunar eclipse, the stars are still visible and in fact become the only lights in the sky. God promised Abraham that his descendants would be as the stars of the heaven. Daniel prophesied that during a time of great turmoil and darkness there would be stars to light the way:

    Dan 12:3 And those who are wise shall shine as the brightness of the sky; and those who turn many to righteousness shall shine as the stars forever and ever.

    Those who dwell in heavenly places are part of the city which is above. They do not walk by the light of their own understanding or fleshly wisdom.

    Rev 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, nor of the moon, that they might shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it, and its lamp is the Lamb.

    These sons of Abraham by faith will, in the time we are entering into, shine as never before, giving direction and light because they carry within them the Lamb who is the Light. In a season that will grow increasingly dark, they will be clearly seen as those who have understanding of the times and know what to do. When it is so dark that there is no natural light for men of the earth to find their way by, the stars of the heavens shine and direct the way.

    Beloved, the year ahead will hold many difficulties and things that are hard to bear but it will be a time to stand as sons of the Light as never before. For those who have gone through the much painful preparation that goes into turning a heap of dust into a star, this is your moment to arise and shine! For those waiting in the wings, your cue is coming up. You’ve been there all along, unseen and unnoticed watching God’s manuscript unfold on the stage but now its time to step out and be seen for the rising star you are!

    Isa 60:1 Arise, shine; for your light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. Isa 60:2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon you, and his glory shall be seen upon you.

    Notice it’s HIS glory that is seen on you, not your own natural talents or abilities but the glory of God that will radiate from within your earthen vessel! Be sure to give all the glory to Him!

    Two signs, two warnings. May we all have ears to hear and wisdom to know what to do.
    Grace and strength to you in the season ahead

    Thanks Ps Danny, I have to agree with you. We need wisdom to answer a people that do not have answers and we do have Gods Word, and of course the goodness of God leads to repentance. I spoke in my church much of what you have said here on Sunday. It’s only by the grace of God we stand – it is a gospel of love and grace, not to be misused. He paid the price for us and we should not cheapen His Word, the Blood or the Work of the Cross of Christ. Preach the truth of His Word, the full Gospel, not half of it.

    God Bless you heaps

    You know as much as I do that we cause our own grief. We bring either our own disease or pleasure.

    I for one am willing to stand with you my Brother, no matter what the world throws at us.

    Here in New South Wales we are about to go forward into another election (MARCH 26).

    This is so important because it will be the greens holding the purse strings unless the Christian Democratic Party get at least two more seats in the Senate.

    The CDP have nearly 2 thirds of the Electorates covered in N.S.W. (there are 93 in all)

    Please pray that more Christians can be found to fill those vacant electorates, and give Christians here a real voice to be reckoned with!

    Please agree with us that Godly Government will return and snatched back from the God Hating Greens, and their anti-Christ ideals!

    Keep preaching the truth of a responsible and Loving GOD that we serve, and help others to appreciate the relationship He has always offered!

    I Loved it when you spoke of GOD’s “conditional” protection.

    It is more of a way to coax us all in the way we should follow in order to find Peace in this world through Jesus and beyond!
    God’s Word says do not let the devil settle in your home… and Australia is our home!

    Australia for Jesus! and may we all move forward into His Holy Spirit.

    Dear Pastor Danny

    Thank you for your emails and in particular for the mighty way which God is using you in these times.

    I wanted to ask if you have any knowledge of Dr David Owuor, an African prophet who preaches repentance and urging people to return to God. I understand that on 31 July 2010 he had prophesied floods for the Australian east coast. He has also prophesied many things which have come to pass: Haiti earthquake, Chile earthquake, China earthquake, Hurricane Katrina. He has recently prophesied that Tasmania would be hit by a Tsumani. I would be grateful to know whether you are able to discern whether Dr Owuor is a genuine true prophet of God.

    Thank you for your help.

    Kind regards and God bless you

    Hi Pastor Daniel I agree with everything you have said, I also see that us Christians have been given much, but have done very little with it, God has given specific instructions for us to follow, but still we do very little in rising up in prayer for our Nation, scripture says if my people humble themselves and repent and pray, I will heal their Land, I guess God cannot be more specific then that. As Christians we must continuously look at ourselves first and ask questions, ten years of drought has it not tought us anything if we are in a drought that means us christians are lacking in prayer and repentence, as we have not sought to have a Relationship with Our God the Father, become intimate with Him, this is a good time I would be saying to the people to humble yourselves and repent and come into prayer, what better time then now as Water in the Physical also means that the Holy Spirit is there in abundance ready to bring back His church into repentence ready for revival. Certainly the physical and spiritual go hand in hand.

    Before the great waters over the Northern Territory A friend and I prayed, for the drought to change as my friend was praying she saw a vision very clearly all the cracks in the earth of Australia, was being covered by rain, I am sure there were others praying also, but this is just 2 people, and straight away down came the rains, I know and have known since I was a baby Christian to pray for or against the elements and God has always answered, we do not have to agree with the weather pattern and what is being prophesied by the news media, we as Christians should be rising up against the wiles of the Devil.

    May God bless you all in all that you do for His Kingdom

    Greetings Pr Danny

    Thanks for a very positive article/insight.

    I believe as you do that judgement must begin in the house of the Lord and that His judgments “naturally” flow out upon humanity for positive or negative consequences…upon those who obey or disobey His word.

    Fires, floods and locusts are a shake-up from heaven for our nation.

    I am encouraged to hear more and more from those who are moving on from what could appear, an angry God (Thor the god of thunder, type..) sitting above striking curses upon any disobedient person,
    rather than that He, the almighty God of infinite love who has set all things in order and that His principles function automatically – an act of His divine will.

    Similar to what some say; we either walk in the God’s blessing (front side) or through disobedience, the curse (the rear side of the blessing), we move towards or away from…
    Yes, it’s up to the individual or a nation to make up their minds and heart to follow and obey Him or else they will incur THEIR own consequences, hence the need to sound a warning as you do.

    As Islam attempts to take a strangle hold upon the earth with it’s angry god concepts, I believe we, the church, will have an increasing and glorious opportunity to display by our lives, a mighty God of love and compassion willing to save to the uttermost all who will call upon Him…
    Pain, catastrophic disasters etc are never God’s first option (and Hell is when all else has failed to turn an individual)

    Many blessings in Jesus name,

    Neil & Dorothy

    Hey Bro, good korero ( discussion….NZ Maori)

    Don’t be delicate about sayn God is in control of the remote control…of course He is whether satan is duin stuff or not…God has the remote control because it is all part of His Word…prophesy.. floods, earthquakes and famine..why? Because He wants peoples attention. Try and be nice and You negate a lot of stuff that God has initiated in the Old Testament…with Israel…is He being nasty? No. He is trying to get people focussed on the more important things…time on the mountaintop ain’t gonna get yu to heaven…valleys are where it is at. Tons of scriptures but what about our attitude and character? Yu duin it..be blessed as yu are where He wants yu tobe..and me to…be blessed ehoa..Friend

    In reply to Melissa’s comment,

    you’re right that we could never earn our way to Heaven. Nobody could ever be good enough, that’s why God sent his son, Jesus to die on the cross, to save us from our sin, so that all who believe in him and are baptised will receive eternal life. But he’s given us the Bible inspired by the Holy Spirit, as a guide on how to live our lives, here on earth. When we sin there are consequences, if we steal or murder we go to jail, if we are unfaithful to our partner this affects our marriage and of course our children, if we sleep around we’ll get a disease. These are the consequences on earth. God loves us so much that he wants to save us from all these things. Whenever we sin, we always hurt someone and ourselves. God wants to save us from this hurt, that’s why he has given us his word as a guide on how to live our lives. Sin can also drag us away from God i.e, people feel guilty after an affair as they know it’s wrong. This can prevent them from coming back to God.

    I still believe that good people get sick or die, this could be to bring others back into a relationship with God, Genesis 50:15-21 or maybe to save them from a lot of hurt in the future. Nobody understands why God does these things but he knows what’s best for us as he knows our future.

    These are my thoughts on it all, I hope it helps you.

    In Christ,
    Helen

    Beloved friends,
    Listening to God’s heart in this time of turmoil. See attached.

    First the natural and then the spiritual.
    Pray, pray, pray –
    *that people will acknowledge and turn to God.
    *That the statement that Suncorp Stadium is the spiritual heart of this State will be turned on its head and KING JESUS be the pulsing spiritual heart of this State and this Nation.
    *That when we are called to “remember who we are” we will not cry proudly “we are Queenslanders” but: “we are children of the King, the Creator/Ruler of everything; we will follow Him.”

    Thank God for the spiritual rain that’s coming and
    Prepare, prepare, prepare.
    Ask God your role and how He needs you to get ready. There will be many thousands of homeless wandering sheep looking for shepherds and care and pasture, clean food and water, and warmth from the chill winds.
    *Can you establish them on the Rock Christ Jesus?
    *Can you quickly build solid foundations? Do you know what the true foundations are?
    *Can you Protect them from the wild beasts and the storms?
    *Turn them into a conquering clean-up army?
    *Do you have the right tools to pass on and a good supply?

    An unprecedented time of opportunity is upon us. Don’t be swamped by the wave; ride it gloriously and triumphantly.

    All for Jesus.

    All my love,
    Joye

    Hi Danny,

    This is a good presentation and pleased that you are sharing this with love., as is our first call in Gal 5:6.

    I often wander about Jesus when he was asked about the tower of Siloam, that he said that those in the tower and those outside the tower … that neither were righteous or unrighteous?

    Luke 13:4-9

    4 “Or do you suppose that those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them were worse culprits than all the men who live in Jerusalem?

    What is your view on this passage?

    Dear friends in Christ,

    I can write a long letter to explain the flood phenomenon, the
    end of days, the signifance of the increase in seismic activity
    on the 13th January…google it…. it is HAARP… and if you
    dont know what THAT is google “HAARP earthquakes floods”…..
    it will all be there for you.

    Or try “Why are the bees dying”
    or consider that this year is flood the next year will be
    locusts… try googling “HAARP pestilences”

    HARP is fulfilling the words of the Prophets… Satan is well at
    work … We are about to see the devestation that we have been
    hearing about for thousands of years

    Try “May 21 2011 solar storms” …

    Way to Go… in the Lord

    Regards Jack

    In the book of Exodus, we read about the 10 plagues God sent on Egypt in
    order to get Pharaoh to let the children of Israel go. He turned water into
    blood killing all of the fish, a plague of frogs, gnats, diseased cattle,
    unhealable boils, hail, locusts, darkness, and the death of the first-born
    of all humans and animals who did not have marked doorposts. These were
    physical signs from God to Pharaoh and the Egyptians. Things that only God
    could do.

    Fast forward to today. Over the past months we have seen thousands of birds
    falling out of the sky in many different locations..dead. We have seen tens
    of thousands, in one case hundreds of thousands of fish washing up on shore
    in different locations…dead. We have seen massive floods in different
    parts of the world. Most recently, 200 cows were found dead in Wisconsin.

    MY FRIEND, ANYONE WHO DOESN’T REALIZE GOD IS TRYING TO GET OUR ATTENTION IS
    DEAF, DUMB, AND BLIND!!!

    Over the years, many scientists have sought to prove the 10 plagues God sent
    on Egypt could have never happened. However, as they sought to disprove the
    Bible, they ended up with very logical, scientific explanations how each one
    of the plagues could have happened exactly as the Bible describes them.
    While there is scientific proof the plagues could have occurred exactly as
    the Bible says they did, it still took God to set them in motion.

    I know that there are many in the scientific community working around the
    clock today to find explanations for the dead birds, fish, animals, and
    floods. I am certain that at some point they will come up with a logical,
    scientific answer for each one. Again, it still took God to set them in
    motion! These physical acts that we are witnessing are clearly signs from
    God to get our attention!

    So what is God trying to say through these natural acts we are witnessing?
    Obviously I don’t know the mind of God, no man does. But I have no doubt
    that as these last days of human history unwind, as we move closer each day
    to the return of our Lord and see the final chapter played out, God wants to
    see “all come to repentance that none be lost.” If nothing else, God is
    trying to wake people up that the end is very near and now is the time to
    repent and come to know Jesus as your Savior by faith.

    I love you and care about you so much. I know most people are not paying
    attention. The dead birds, fish, animals, the floods, are simply acts of
    nature they observe but see no meaning in. I vehemently disagree. There
    are no coincidences with God. Everything has a reason, even though we may
    not fully understand that reason. People need to wake up, look up, and
    realize that there truly is a God who created the heavens and earth, who
    loves them, and wants to have an eternal relationship with them.

    If you have never made a commitment of your heart and life to Jesus by
    faith, today is your day. It is no accident or coincidence you are reading
    this today. God is speaking to you as loudly as He is speaking to this lost
    world through these acts of nature we have been witnessing the past few
    months.

    If you do not have 100% assurance that if your life ends today you will
    spend eternity with God, the Bible says TODAY is the day of salvation.
    Please take a few minutes, the most important few minutes of your life, and
    go to: http://www.liveprayer.com/plan.cfm
    Simply ask God to open your heart, read the words, watch the brief video
    clip, and make the most important decision you will make in this life, the
    decision to invite Jesus into your heart and life by faith. God is speaking
    to YOU, and I will be praying for you.

    In His love and service,
    Your friend and brother in Christ,
    Bill

    Hi Pastor Daniel,
    I have been also watching the news re the Northern Victorian floods.
    This is possibly not relevant but our family lived in Kerang for 15 years. It is an amazing Christian Town. When we lived there all the churches were well attended. There was a Christian Chemist, who could still possibly be there. Two Christian Doctors. I know one is still there could be others. The Undertaker was also Christian. I was one of 2 District Nurses. The other Nurse went to the Catholic Church. The Nuns were lovely people as well.
    The Baptist Church I attended had adult Sunday School as well as the regular Sunday School. The Bible teaching was superb. All our children have been grounded in the Word which has given them a good foundation. Missions and prayer took a big place in the church as a whole.
    I could go on but what I am trying to say is it is interesting that a lot of places have gone under but Kerang is still dry. There is now a strong Exclusive Brethren population there. They came and bought a lot of houses and moved into the town about 20 years ago. I know a lot of people don’t like them but they are people who love the Lord even if in a different way. They still stand on the P.O. steps and preach. Because I have not lived there for 20 years, I don’t know the ‘Christian’ climate but we still have friends there who are still strong Christians. I think it is ‘Interesting’ I have been praying for Kerang and I know those who live there are not just praying now but have been for many years. We do need to pray for the farmers for there are a lot of Christian farmers in the district.
    Just thought I’d share my thoughts.

    Barbara

    Hi Jason
    Just wanted to pass on our gratitude for the prayers that were offered up for the flood situation. As residents of Queensland, we really are encouraged to hear that you, in Vic, are mindful of us and that Ps Danny was sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit. Michael and I , here in Mt Samson, were not directly affected as we are not in a flood prone area, but due to weeks of rain, we had water up to our door on one day. We held onto the Lord’s promise which He gave us when we moved here 5 yrs ago. We were a bit concerned then about the house. It has been dug in instead of being built up on a mound. But the Lord gave us assurance that He would never allow the house to be flooded, by sending a magnificent rainbow at the time and we always remember that whenever the weather gets rough. This was probably the ultimate test and the Lord has been faithful as always.
    Our daughter who lives in a high set Queenslander house at Ipswich was evacuated. She and her husband and 2 boys were also protected from devastation. They live a few streets away from the Bremer River. The prediction was for a level higher than the 1974 floods which then brought water into the upper storey to about ankle deep. This time the water only swept through the lower level of the house which is not built in anyway. And…. praise the Lord…came only to the base of the meter box. They were so relieved.
    We have much to be thankful for.
    Praise the Lord. He is awesome!!
    God Bless
    Michael & Carol

    Millions of Dollars Raised for Flood Victims through National Day of Prayer

    Yesterday, Sunday 16 January, was a ‘National Day of Prayer for Flood Victims’ with churches all over Australia donating to help those ravaged by the floods in Queensland.

    Warwick Marsh from the Australian Christian Values Institute, who helped coordinate the day of prayer, said, “Yesterday the National Day of Prayer for Flood Victims was supported by millions of Christian people around Australia and could well have raised ten million dollars to help fund the response to this terrible tragedy. Final figures will not be available for a few more weeks. We believe that over the next several weeks faith-based charities will raise between 20 and 30 million dollars to help flood victims but in real terms this will amount to much more. The real contribution could be tenfold the cash contribution in terms of man-hours, goods in kind and voluntary efforts on the part of the Christian community towards this national disaster”.

    Marsh continued, “The National Day of Prayer for Flood Victims has been a catalyst for such generosity as fellow Australians reach out to those in need in our nation. The Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, has commended the assistance of faith communities by saying, ‘I have visited a church being used as an evacuation centre and seen the work being done amongst those in evacuation centres by church leaders. Faith-based charities have given crucial help to those in need.

    Many flood victims I have met are also very grateful for the prayers that people of faith have been making. I know many churches specially dedicated Sunday, 16 January to pray for the flood victims, and that other faith communities will have similar observances in coming days.

    So as Prime Minister can I offer this simple thank you to Australian faith communities for everything you are doing? No good work is wasted at a time like this’.”

    Ps Don Reddin from Adelaide, who helped initiate this national day of prayer through his Facebook site, said, “I am heartened by the response of the Christian churches to the flood crisis in Queensland and other states. Their generosity, especially in provision of money, resources, effort and particularly in joining together in prayer last Sunday for the National Day of Prayer for Flood Victims is exceptional. I am encouraged that churches are continuing to support the restoration efforts because this is the gospel in action”.

  35. 35 Timothy

    Thank you Pastor Danny for pointing out the necessity of seeing the need to have a heavenly perspective of events. I have often warned people in the past and I still repeat it, that God is going to judge our nation for many sins that have been done and given approval. Amongst those sins are:
    -kicking God out of our schools as well as in the public sphere, all in the name of “separation of church and state”.
    -legislating to support open sins: abortion (point blank murder of the innocent), sodomy (homosexuality), illegitimate unions, and other blatant open sins in the public of blasphemy against God in the media and making all education systems teach evolution.
    -Acquitting the guilty and persecuting the righteous. This has been a trend in the name of “humanitarianism”, whereby the rod of correction is removed from the schools and the hangman’s noose has been removed from the gallows. Who has the media made heroes of and the Australian public have been guilty of supporting? Drug dealers, murderers and terrorists and traitors to the nation such as David Hicks. The Holy Scripture is abounding with references for not performing justice correctly in defence of the helpless and punishing the wicked.
    -Wicked leaders in high places that have no reverence for God and His Word along with His laws. This includes Kevin Rudd and our current PM, Julia Gillard. Even at this present time, Gillard refuses to even offer prayer to God.
    -Calling good evil and evil good. (Isaiah 5:20-25). This has been a serious problem with both the public education system and the media along with our leaders in the Parliament and in the churches.
    -Persecuting righteous people who have tried to preach the Word of God and to lead others out of darkness into light. It is no accident that the State of Victoria has also been hit with severe flooding due to their persecution of Pastors Danny Nalliah and Daniel Scot. The State of Victoria also persecuted a Brethren youth leader who would not let sodomites/homosexuals use his facilities to promote their sin. Victoria is guilty of persecuting the righteous many times over.

    Catch the Fire Ministries

    Greetings to you in Jesus name from Nepal.

    Dear Pastor, After a long Bible study regarding Baptism, I found 3 way
    of Baptism. One from Water, second from Holy Spirit and Third from
    Baptism through Fire.
    While in the time of Investigation on Baptism, I feel touch while
    studying of fire Baptism.
    In Bible there is saying, What comes out is from in. It means, People
    are being unworthy day to day due to their anti habits and characters.
    So, I found its solution. If any people took the baptism through fire,
    their internal thinking power, and characters all will be cleaned and
    be clear. So, in Nepal, there are many Churches & Leaders who are
    still unknowing about the Fire Baptism and are away from the presence
    of Holy Spirit Therefore, I want to give training to 40 Leaders for 40
    days each year for 40 years so that Nepali Churches and Leaders could
    understand about the Fire Ministry and Power of Holy Spirit.

    In 2011, I have completed 40 years.So, from 2011 to 2050 I will 80
    years. Hence, Till 2050, My vision is to make understand Nepali
    churches about the Baptism through Fire because They have belief that
    taking baptism through water they got salavation but there is no more
    changing in their life. So, I want your Network to be involved in our
    small team establish for this Mission.

    Thanking you very much for reading our mail. Hope we will get
    connected for this wounderful task very soon in Jesus Name. Amen

    Hi Jason

    Howe & I weren’t in Melbourne but we prayed here in Canberra as I work part-time, I prayed from early hours today for several hours, joining in with your prayers for the river beak to come under the authority of Lord Jesus.

    Thank you for this report.

    Kind regards

    Dear Jason, Thanks for this email. I guess by now you will have heard from Lawrie Whitmore that a prayer meeting was held in the City Hall in Hobart to pray about the floods. There were about 40 to 50 people there and we had a wonderful time. We rejoice to hear of what God is doing. There is nothing too hard for Him. Please pray for us as we DV are making plans to go to Sulawesi in Indonesia where we have foster children from years ago. They have always called us Mum & Dad. They were here in Tasmania in connection with the Colombo Plan. It has just been wonderful how the Lord has led and guided and our Pastors feel it is right for us to go. The church is sending us. Our children are opposed. They are not walking with the Lord and believe that we wont get travel insurance and are concerned for us as Audrey nearly died just over some 12 months ago now. Audrey turns 79 and I am 80. However, we believe there is nothing too hard for the Lord and that we will get the travel insurance. We are going for ministry as the Lord leads and guides and believing for great things. I have been reading all about Smith Wigglesworth again and have been truly blessed. How sad it is that so many of us believers limit God. We praise the Lord that every Word of our Living God is yea and amen in Christ Jesus. We love Phillipians Chapter 4. There is plenty there to claim for our own and believe it. Praise the Lord. This is not all public as yet. We trust to finally share it with our church on Sunday morning. Love and prayers.

    Audrey & Maurice. PS We will be in Sulawesi (Manado) Indonesia for 3 weeks during March/April.

    Pastor Danny, as I was walking our dog a week or 2 ago, I felt the Lord quickening a snippet of scripture to me, over and over. It was this:

    “still they did not repent”

    I looked it up when I got back – twice in Rev. 9 and twice in Rev 16 this is written – both cases it’s in the context of God sending judgments among men. You could almost read between the lines Father God saying “What is it going to take to get them to come back to Me so I can bless them:”

    On the dashboard of our Corolla, a warning comes on that says OVERDRIVE OFF when don’t have that engaged. The assumption being, that you are meant to have the overdrive on as an economy measure most of the time.

    I am learning that when Father God sends judgments (and the Bible is so clear that He is in charge of the weather, and if we will walk in His ways, He will send the rain “in it’s season” Deut. 28), that it’s because He wants us to come back to Him so He can bless us again. He takes no delight in causing us heartache and loss. He loves to se us return to Him, just like the prodigal son. I looked up the word PRODIGAL in the dictionary – it means “given to wanton luxury”. Sound a bit like Aussies at the moment?
    God bless you and yours good warrior of the TRUTH.

    I have just read your prayer request for the floods of Australia. I agree that this is a wake up call from our loving God to go back to Him wholeheartedly. I have been asking to unite our prayers so that God have mercy on this country and deliver us from the evil that surrounds us.This morning when I opened the Bible to pray Psalm 61 “A Prayer for Deliverance” came to my prayer attention. Be blessed in abundance.

    1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.

    2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,

    Hi Danny,

    I was wondering whether you think the jezebel spirit is on the rise in our government? More and more I am seeing women gaining substantial roles in our government both federal and state. People seem to be blinded and tolerate what is happening spiritually to this country. Men are turning more and more into Ahabs which in turn is allowing the evil jezebel spirit to run rampant and accomplish satans plans. I know that this spirit can effect both male and female, predominantly it seems to like us females though.The Holy spirit seems to becoming suppressed slowly but surely. I am very concerned about this divisive evil spirit that is on the rise. Do you see this? Or am I looking into something that is not there? What is your view about this?

    Kind regards, Tamara.

  48. 48 Prophetic word from Graham Cooke

    Part of Prophetic Word Given By Graham Cooke at DaySpring Church 21/11/10

    I am fascinated right now by the spiritual atmosphere in Australia and by the spirit and the sense of promise over the nation. Last time I was here I said, the water level’s rising, and I feel that, constantly, every day that I’ve been here. That sense of imminence, that sense of breakthrough, that sense that Heaven is gathering in one place for something. And what I see over Australia is that I see a wall of water coming towards Australia. I would say it’s a spiritual tsunami, one that will go from the east to the west, from the west to the east, from north to south and south to north, and I really believe and a part of the feature of this tsunami , this wall of water, I believe it’s going to flood the country. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if, in every state and province, the water level in the natural doesn’t rise and the drought quits across the whole country, cos I believe that the Lord is going to make us all wet. I know Australian men don’t like being wet but, tough!

    I really feel there is an outpouring coming and one of the features of it, I think, I believe is that we’re seeing the war starting to happen against what God is doing against the religious spirit that’s captured this country. Some of that probably came from the mother country, whoever that is these days, but I think there’s a violence being done against the religious spirit in our midst. A religious spirit is pretty much always angry about something. It’s negative, it’s angry, it’s judgemental, ‘cos a religious spirit can never understand love, grace, mercy or kindness. So it never features in those things. It always moves out of a place of negativity, judgement, harshness, hardness, anger, bitterness, resentment. So we’re going to see a violence done to that spirit which I think will be fun.

    We’re going to see a lot of ministries repenting because they’ll have a change of heart, they’ll come under a wall of water and, I believe, God will give them a fresh encounter of His goodness and His kindness and His mercy. I see a time of refreshing that is going to precede it. What I feel I’m doing right now is I feel a little like John the Baptist saying, Prepare the way of the Lord. I see two moves happening. I see a move starting right now, it’s in the country right now, and it’s like a season of preparation to get ready for a move of God that is coming, ‘cos the move of God that’s coming is going to sweep across the country. And I would say that to take out your history of all your revivals and all your moves of this nation’s history, put them all together and what God does next will dwarf all of that. We’re seeing a move of God that will be talked about all around the world. We will see a move of God that will not only increase the value of this nation spiritually but materially. We’re seeing a move of God where all kinds of things will happen in the economy, in the spirituality of the nation, we’ll see things like crime drop, people getting out of poverty, we’ll see business increases, we’re going to see the Kingdom come and a move of God that will touch every part of culture and society in this country. We’re going to see a wall of water coming that will sweep all around the country. We’ll see a move of God that will attack that religious spirit in the church. It will overpower secular powers and overturn legislation to release the church into a stronger Kingdom dynamic in the very structure of our society.

    It feels to me like the church is going to be given a place in the country. We’re going to see a breakthrough spirit in supernatural power. We’re going to see miracles happening in this country that we normally associate with other places. And people will come here because there are going to be breakthroughs against certain kinds of diseases and doctors and hospitals around the country and medical practices will be saying to people, the only hope for you is to go to Australia. Because there is in this place and that place there are miracles happening in this kind of disease and this kind of disorder. How about that? People coming to the end of the world, to be set free! That’s funny. And what I see is a move of God in key churches. I really believe that we’re in a move of God right now, preparing for the move of God. We’re in a season of preparation where the hand of God is upon us and I’m telling you, He really means business. I see a grace of God but I also see a terror of God coming upon us in the sense of, when God begins to move, in this season of preparation, there is an awe and a respect and a Godly fear going to rise up in our hearts and we’re going to stop the stuff.

    I know that in the natural and the political world the issue of sovereignty is right there in the background for us in Australia, and that’s a cool thing, but the issue over the Australian church is the same one. It’s the issue of sovereignty, it’s the issue of who really has the power in this nation? We’re going to see a rise in warfare because we’re going to see a rise in the sovereignty, the supremacy and the majesty of the Lord Jesus. Everywhere we look, God is going to commit us to a fight that we can win. And this season of preparation is to get us ready for that time.

    There’s a wall of water coming and we’re moving into a space in the Spirit that God has set aside for us. The water level is rising all across Australia and we’re learning a new buoyancy in the Spirit, we’re learning the joy, we’re learning about the joy, the pleasure and the desire of God. We’re learning about the passions of God for us. There’s an acceleration amongst us, an increase of momentum. God is redeeming time. It’s time for us to move quickly. It’s not a place for us to be splashing about in the shallows. It’s time for us to go out into a deeper place. There’s an increase in majesty around us. There are storms coming, too, into this nation. There are storms in the Spirit where we are going to take on the enemy in key high places and we’re going to win through. Because we have a war to fight in this country and it’s time we stood up and fought it. This season of preparation is so important because we get to defeat the enemy with joy and laughter. We get to hear the sound of Jesus laughing on the battlefield. We get to understand that there is a quickening spirit that’s going to allow us to break through on the left and right. The issue in the body of Christ is going to be the Lordship of Jesus. And the issue in our culture and society is going to be the sovereignty of God. Those two things are going together.

    There’s a power and a majesty rising up in the body of Christ, and Australia’s going to see the Bride standing in the midst of your own culture. And you’re going to see the power of the Bride of Christ in these days. You’re going to see what a woman in love really can do. Yeah? We’re going to see the power of that in the earth. There’s going to be a place in worship where Heaven will touch down. There is a Levitical anointing being released across the nation. Heaven is going to hear the sound of the Bride to be worshipping. It’s the sound of victory, it’s the sound of power, the sound of anointing, it’s the sound in Australia. And the sound of Australia is going to be heard around the world. And it is time within Australia’s borders, it is time for the voice of Australia to rise up. It is time for Australian ministries and Australian leaders to stand up, to rise up, and occupy a place in the Spirit. We’re not going to need imports. I’m even hoping that you’ll let me in the country so I can serve coffee at your conferences or something. The sound of Australia is rising up. This is our time. There are moments in history where God touches down in places and everything changes. We’re going to see one of those moments in history. It’s going to be a defining point for the contemporary Australian church to rise up, occupy a place in the Spirit. But you understand something. To whom much is given, much is going to be expected.

    I believe the Lord is saying to Australia these days, to the Australian church, the country that you’re in I am going to give it to you. I’m giving it to the body of Christ. Actually, I believe He’s saying I’m giving it to the Bride of Christ that’s emerging. This is a bridal issue. God is giving it to the Bride of Christ that wherever worship flows in this nation, wherever worship goes to a whole new level you’re going to see outbreaks of the Kingdom. We’re going to see a restoration of a Levitical anointing across this nation. And churches, communities that value worship, are going to see expressions of the Kingdom coming down, touching down that are going to be extraordinary. But make no mistake – if you haven’t made any growth in worship in the last couple of years you need to get your skates on. You need to do something in worship in the next twelve months that you’ve never done before. This is not a time for hanging out at the back, it’s not a time for reading the Bible when worship is going. It’s not a time for standing there, looking at your watch or your hands in your pockets. This is a time for engagement ‘cos that’s what happens when the Bride of Christ emerges. It’s about engagement. It’s about betrothal. It’s about coming into a place of worship and adoration and rejoicing and thanksgiving that you’ve never been in before. So, I’m calling every man, woman and child in this place. It’s time to get in a deeper flow of worship personally. It’s a time to worship God from the heart. This is not a place of engagement in worship in your head. This is a time for action. It is a time when you actually open your mouth and real words come out. We don’t just think about worshipping God, our body, our mouth, everything in our heart is fully engaged in worship. So there is a challenge from Heaven right now upon every one of us and the challenge is about engagement. So love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, your body, your mind and all your strength.

    Dear Danny
    That was a very good article, it balanced love and righteous judgements. You are wise to mention the devil, he is left out of the discussion most of the time. In Jer 25 the Lord called Nebuchadnezzar “My servant” and concerning the same issue about David being incited to take a census I Chron 21:1 says satan did it and II Sam 24:1 say the anger of the Lord did it. Point is satan and evil men are used by the Lord, or allowed by the Lord to bring judgment on His people. As you know in I Cor 5 Paul turns a man over to satan for sexual sin. We have a false gospel of soooooooo much love God just can’t be involved in any judgment at all. Again, you did a good job to balance out love and judgement. The Lord has and is doing a deep work in you. Remember Jer 4:19 how he saw their sin and spoke of judgement but also was so broken and tender about the suffering that would surely come. Lord, help us with tears warn you people of the sins and the gates of hell our sins open by giving place to the devil. I thought it might be good to write… Blessings Rick

    HI,
    Re Tamara,s comments.
    I think there are a few areas to her comments.
    I think one of the problems lies with us men. A lot of us have failed to be the GODLY men we were called to be. I put my hand up for that one as I have not been the biblical man I was meant to be.
    Also men can be intimidated by women and will hold back. I think from GOD’s word, that man was meant to be the leader, but because of our reluctance to accept responsibility, HE has had to use women or nothing would get done. Christian women of this world in most cases, are the most diligent prayer warriors and intercessors.

    In Isaiah 3:12 we read. As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.

    I feel that having women in authority will change when men step up to the plate and accept their GOD proclaimed position.

    I agree that Jezebel is more likely to target women, and us men, the Ahab spirit.
    I hope women will not see my comments as a putdown. Our Creator is the GOD of order.

    Dear Pastor Danny,

    Thank you so much for your clear word regarding the floods in Australia. It is an important word, which needs to be heard!

    May I have your permission to forward it to Rev. Fred Nile in case he wants to reprint it in his Family World News? Would you be happy to have it forwarded to others as well and reprinted in excerpts or its entirety, to be shared with whomever we feel might have an open ear for it?

    Dec 14th a so-called Friend of Israel, Australia’s foreign minister, Kevin Rudd delivers a blunt message to Israel. Tells Israel it must stop settlement, including in East Jerusalem. Rudd travelled to Jerusalem with even more blunt message than everyone expected, with a stinging message he told Israel that they must open up their Nuclear facilities to the UN Inspectors.

    In an interview with the Australian newspaper, Mr Rudd not only called on Israel to join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), but said it should open all its nuclear facilities to UN inspectors.

    DURING 2010, A LOW POINT IN AUSTRALIAN-ISRAELI RELATIONSHIP- WENT FROM BAD TO WORSE.

    Kevin Rudd’s State Queensland needs at least 2 years to recover: Australian Treasurer

    Kevin Rudd’s home district of Queensland, Australia: Experiencing flooding of ‘biblical proportions’

    Australia flood rescue and relief efforts are under way to deal with what officials have called a “disaster of biblical proportions.”

    Floods ‘Worst Disaster In Australian History’

    The rain poured continuously in eastern Queensland for the last 40 days. Many towns and farmland in central and southeastern Queensland have been swamped. Other parts of Australia are still being flooded.

    This all is only a part, and just the beginning, of the judgments God has already announced in His Word. If nations or individuals – whether preachers or secularists – will persist in their rebellious anti-Israel, “I know it better” ways, the devastating calamities will only increase, both because of our God-less immorality as well as our negative attitudes to the very people that our God is busy restoring “with all His heart and with all His soul.”

    How awful and dreadful, therefore, must His response be to those who thus come against His very heart and soul – the apple of His eye.

    Although mainly four nations are mentioned above, the list could be made much longer. In His Word God warns all nations, and especially those who divide His land, which is today the coordinated policy of most of our nations, that they will be brought to judgment by Him:

    I will also gather all nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land. (Joel 3:2)

    Observing the dangerous upheavals occurring in even the so-called ‘moderate’ Arab nations like Tunisia, Jordan and Egypt, one can perceive what, from God’s point of view, is in store for the more fanatically oriented nations like today’s Lebanon, Turkey, Syria and Iran. God indeed has a day of vengeance for the sake of Zion as Isaiah proclaims, and we shall soon see how awful that day will be!

    And, as we see the utter loneliness of little Israel, surrounded as she is by so much hatred, and the evil preparations to once and for all obliterate her from the map of the Middle East, with most of the world silent, indifferent and even hostile to her as well as to most of those who call themselves God’s people – the Christians – one can understand the cry of God’s heart expressed by Isaiah:

    Then the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no justice.He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor; therefore His own arm brought salvation for Him; and His own righteousness, it sustained Him. For He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on His head; He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak. According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay, fury to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies; the coastlands He will fully repay. So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun; when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. “The Redeemer will come to Zion, and to those who turn from transgression in Jacob,” says the Lord. (Isaiah 59:15b-20)

    Will we, as is suggested in this verse, leave God to alone fight His battle for His people at this time. Or will we, like Rees and Samuel Howells from Wales, Corrie ten Boom family, from the Netherlands, Dietrich Bonhoeffer from Germany, Orde Wingate from Britain and many others, take our stand now in prayer, fasting and in prophetic proclamation for His people sake?

    For if we remain silent now then, as Mordecai warned Queen Esther, “relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place” (Esther 4:14) – but we and our nations will perish.

    May God in His unfathomable mercy at this very late hour raise true Mordecais and Esthers also in high places I pray.

    Billye Brim taught a few yrs back that according to the rabbis and hebrew scholars we were about to enter into the time for the judgement of the nations,hence a critical hour. Since then we have seen many natural disasters on earth. The cyclonic winds that r about to hit Qld may b in line with this.Intercessors down here in Melb at the time of the floods said then that worse was goin to happen. Main reason is we r nearing the end of the age,Charles Capps has said this stuff is a forerunner of what will happen in the trib, yet like in Noahs time people wont repent, Watching God channelMike Bickle interesting, saw his assocaite many yrs ago at Clayton Church of Christ, v radical christians.ANOINTING was soooodeep/ never forget it.keep praying plse pray for housing for me and the kids.need plumbing fixed.xo

    Hi, to all the group of Catch the Fire Ministry,

    I, Frances really appreciate your prayers and dedication towards our Lord as you take time to pray and seek Gods”face. I stand with you, even I am far away but my heart is close to God and do believe, that all of us has to cry out to our God on behalf of others who have not experienced Him yet. Now is the time to cry and to pray. I also send my first pledge the building fund for the month of February, and I will send my pledge every month by bank. I don’t need any receipt. It’s from the bottom of my heart, I pledge for the building. I am very glad to see lots of people turn to pray. Be blesed all.

    Love in Christ,

    Dear Pastor Danny

    I was updating my self via the internet, and praying for the people in Qlnd area. The Lord is still on the Throne, and HE knows what is best. I am sure it was the Mercy and the Grace of our Lord, that lives were spared. Many Christians around the world were praying for Qlnd.

    I believe the Lord would only use these incidents to Glorify Himself, and we will know the reality of these devastaions when we get to Heaven.

    I can feel how you would have felt through the night, and the Lord heard your prayers. I too encountered similar situations on boxing day 2004 when the tsunami hit Sri Lanka. The Lord led me to many places I’ve never been before to go and share HIS love to hundreds through action. I am sure the Lord will use you and your church to share His love to many thousands who have been affected by Yasi. This would be an ideal opportunity for you to minister to many.

    “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.

    Please keed us updated.

    Dear Pastor Daniel,

    I just feel to share with you that I woke up at 3.30am yesterday morning (Wednesday), with Psalm 91 clearly on my mind, in my heart and on my lips. Over and over again verses 7 to 11 of Psalm 91 went around and around in my head, “A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If you make the most High your dwelling – even the Lord, who is my refuge – then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.”

    I realised that the Holy Spirit was urging me to pray Psalm 91 over all the Christians who were in the path of the cyclone, Yasi, which I did throughout the day. Later in the early evening, I travailed on my knees, praying Psalm 91 over every believer, reading the Psalm out loud over and over again, pleading Gods mercy over every person who knows and loves God. I prayed that after the cyclone they would be a testimony to the world that if we make the Most High our dwelling place, no harm will befall us. I also prayed (amongst other things, such as revival, as the Holy Spirit led) that the Spirit of Repentence would sweep over Queensland, that every sinner and non-believer would repent and be saved. I cied out for their souls to be spared from the gates of hell, pleading that the veil would be lifted from their eyes and that they would see the truth. I pleaded Gods forgiveness that the current leaders of our nation have not called on His name and are denying Him.

    After reading your email yesterday evening about God wanting to use the cyclone to bring people to repentance, it confirmed to me that what I’d been seeing all day was definately from the Holy Spirit: Please may I suggest that you urge people to pray Psalm 91 over every believer in Queensland at this time. Considering it is what I call an ‘end time Psalm’, we should be praying it over all the Christians of our nation at all times from now on as an ongoing ‘thing’. I had it (to pray Psalm 91) as a real urgency in my spirit all day yesterday, all of last night and again throughout today. I feel this is vital to how God wants us to pray.

    Thankyou for your on-going encouragement to pray for Australia and its government, to stand up and be counted for my Lord Jesus and not to settle for complacency. I pray Gods blessings over your family and the ‘Catch the Fire Ministry’.

    With love in our precious Saviour Jesus Christ,

    Hi all,

    The interesting thing I observed through this Cyclone is:
    1.It crossed the coast at “Mission Beach”
    2.At this point of time no lives are lost.
    3.Peole are saying “It’s a miracle!”
    4.It finished/turned into a low at warning number 39.(3 times 13).

    Is it just me, but can anyone else see the hand of God in this?

    Regards
    Bill

    Blessings to all

    Thanks to all for your prayers for us here in northern Victoria, the floods here have been the biggest on record but many miracles have accured. Praise the Lord, we are so Blessed!

    Thanks to Graham Cooke for the comments above and amen.

    Shalom All,

    What powerful answers to our prayers we have seen over the past several
    weeks. Firstly the impact our prayers had on reducing the severity of the
    floods in Queensland and Victoria. The Brisbane river never reached its
    declared level, neither did the McIntyre at Goondiwindi or the three rivers
    at Swan Hill as well as many others. Then this week with Yasi, none of the
    areas were wiped off the face of the map as predicted. It proves that Yahweh
    reigns supreme and the worlds systems are puny and totally inadequate.

    Many miracles are happening in the lives of Christians around Australia. I
    will have details of these at our meeting next Wednesday, February 9.

    Our meeting will be at 7pm at the Bruce Street Community Centre, 22-24 Bruce
    Street, East Maitland. Let us praise the devil out of the Hunter and see the
    Hunter bathed in the Lord’s light.

    Blessings,

    Trevor

    Therefore the LORD said Solomon,” Because you have done this,and have not kept My covenant and My statutes, which I have commended you, I will surely tear the kingdom away from you and give it your servant.(1Kings 11:11)
    Dear all family in christ Yesus, on time being God very angry to all the people in the earth because there is no more love and there is no more Yesus’s character in the heart of His followers, But dont worry God said in the (Yoel 2:32) And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved. For in mount Zion in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, As the LORD has said, Among the remnant whom the LORD calls

    Prophetic word for Australia that David Wagner gave on August 10, 2010:

    This is a season of awakening for the nation of Australia. There is a generation and a nation that still has not found what they are looking for but God is about to open their eyes. The mantle that the U.S. was supposed to carry but dropped is falling on the church of Australia. The eye of God is on Australia in this hour and He is raising up a remnant that will not tolerate or stomach religion that is looking for true relationship with the Father. The Holy Spirit is about pour out an unusual anointing of grace and Australia will host one of the greatest revivals/awakenings the earth has ever seen. There is a vibration that will be felt throughout the continent. It will not be destructive like an earthquake but it will be the vibration of the move of the Holy Spirit. There is a tremendous acceleration coming upon the church. What once took a decade will take a year, what once took a year will take months, what once took months will take days to complete.There is a new visitation of expectation and God want to heal the hope of Australia. The Lord is neither Labor or Liberal He is righteous and the Lord is about to visit the government of Australia even during this time of election and transition. The Lord is bringing the church to maturity and there is a unity with purpose that is about to take place. If you want to be around what God is doing next be around the youth and children. Fresh faith is rising. Australia is about to be seen as a Global Spiritual Power not only in the Pacific Rim but throughout the earth. This is a nation of harvest reapers. It is time to train up and equip the “equippers”. Something special and supernatural is about to converge upon the “church” of Australia. It will not be contained by a denomination or particular movement but it will be widespread and uncontrollable. This is a season of mandated miracles. What God is about to release no man can stop.

    Greetings All in the name of our LORD JESUS CHRIST,

    Following on from my earlier messages about the flood, about how trials are sent to perfect us,
    here, below, is a report of what GOD is doing;
    Perfecting us involves us becoming more CHRIST-Like, well, what an opportunity in this crisis,
    and many have taken that challenge to “Love Thy Neighbour As Thyself”.
    The monies raised is already over $140Million and fund-raising will continue for some time yet.
    The volunteers were so many that even some had to be turned away, incredible.

    There is a reason why this nation is called
    “AUSTRALIA — THE LAND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT”

    The HOLY SPIRIT is alive and well in this nation.
    While none of us like facing trials (especially myself), we are seeing the maturing of a nation of CHRISTians.
    Strangers helping strangers, how much more CHRIST-Like can this be;
    A real “Who is my neighbor” parable that JESUS taught in Luke 10.

    May our Loving GOD immensely bless those Church Leaders who are leading thier churches in this rebuilding effort,
    especially the rebuilding of lives.
    And may their churches grow as a result.

    To those who think that prayer is all or mainly about needs,
    it’s high time prayer is focused to what GOD has to say,
    to what GOD is teaching us, esp to HIS Word,
    to focus about the priorities of prayer that JESUS taught in Matt 6:9-15 & Luke 11:2-4.
    Needs is only 5th in order of priority.

    Unfortunately, I’m no expert on this yet, I’m still learning myself.

    GOD’S SHALLOM,
    tony

    Cindy Jacobs prophesied in 2008 “Queensland will bow the knee-I will break open the land”. Very interesting wording in light of what is happening. Then revival will come. How exciting.

    Transcript of the words in case you can’t watch it:

    The Lord says that Australia is going to experience a powerful move of the Holy Spirit. God says that “I am coming to the Great Southland of the Holy Spirit with a signs and wonders movement. I am going to break out. I am getting ready to breathe. Queensland will bow the knee. Queensland is going to experience a tremendous move of the Holy Spirit”. God says, “I am coming to break open the land. There are prayers that have been prayed by former generations, that I am getting ready to answer. For I must answer their prayers. No longer will my word be delayed”, says the Lord. “Gather my people. Psalm 50. Who have made covenant by sacrifice. You mount up a new generation of Light horsemen. For I am getting ready to use them even to Jerusalem,” says the Lord. “Even as they protected Beersheba in WW1 I am getting ready to cause them to ride. Mount up, call them together. It is time for the call to ride again,” says the Lord.

    HUMBLE YOURSELVES UNDER GOD’S MIGHTY HAND

    Australia, and also New Zealand, have suffered significantly as a result of recent floods, cyclones and earthquakes Many searching questions have been asked by those directly affected as well as those who have observed from a distance as to what God is wanting to say to us in the midst of such devastation and disruption to everyday life.

    Rev Dr Edgar Mayer, Pastor of Living Grace Church Toowoomba was recently called upon to give the address at a public Toowoomba Region Flood Recovery Service. Our Feature Article this month is the content of that address at the service in Toowoomba which sought to deal with the impact that the tragedy, which took place in Toowoomba and the Lockyer Valley, had on the lives of those communities.

    Message: 1 Peter 5:6-7; Date: 5 February 11

    What happened four weeks ago on Monday 10 January is hard to put into words. It was so extraordinary and devastating that it prompted our Police Commissioner Bob Atkinson and media outlets across the world to make up a new word for this kind of disaster: “inland tsunami”. And this is what we had. According to our Premier Anna Bligh – the flash floods here in Toowoomba were the “darkest hour” since the Queensland flood crisis began – “a complete freak of nature, an extraordinary deluge that almost came out of nowhere”.

    By some estimates – up to 7.5 billion tonnes of water – [that is:] fifteen times the water mass of Sydney harbour – overwhelmed us (in Southeast Queensland) in the space of 72 hours. People died – (35 since the Qld floods began in Nov 2010) – not only here but even more so down the range: Withcott, Murphy’s Creek and Grantham. On Monday 10 January – a wall of water – up to eight meters high – rushed down the range and tore through houses and communities – without warning.

    There are now bare concrete slabs where houses used to be. How do you put the scale of the disaster into words? Flooding in three states, now cyclones and – do you remember? – on the day of our “inland tsunami” – when we watched the evening news – we saw bushfires in WA. How do you find words for all of this? This is difficult but – in preparation for this service – eight pastors from across the churches in Toowoomba agreed on the appropriateness of the following Bible verses – 1 Peter 5:6-7: “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand . Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”

    God was still God on Monday 10 January and, therefore, we have to say that somehow his mighty hand allowed the flood to happen. But – then – the immediate question is why? Why did God allow the devastation? The Bible verses in 1 Peter 5 do not answer this question – (they only make reference to God’s mighty hand) – and – this morning – I do not want to speculate either. Some say that these kinds of floods (and cyclones) are simply part of God’s design of our ecology – natural weather patterns in Australia.

    Others point to the fact that our current disaster-prone world was not God’s original design but came about because of us rejecting him. Our first human ancestors – and subsequently all of us – have rejected and – in some measure – keep rejecting the creator of this world which leaves the world in a corrupt place where God’s reign is contested by evil – including hostile storms. There may be further viewpoints but – with your permission – right now – I will not so much pursue the question of why God’s mighty hand let this happen to us. I want to pick up on the way forward for us.

    Our first reaction according to the Bible – what we are meant to do first in response to the “inland tsunami” – is to humble ourselves before God. I read again the opening words of the Bible verses in 1 Peter 5: “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand . ” Humble yourself. However, is this what we are doing? I would say that even in the church this is not what comes natural to us. I have seen it many times that when misfortune comes, people are not drawing closer to God but pull away from him even further.

    They vent their anger on him, shake their fists and blame him for their suffering, saying: “How could you do this, God? I may not have been the best Christian before but now, God, I despise you.” Strong words! Proud words! As a pastor – I am familiar with them and – to a degree – I understand them but they lead us nowhere. Humble yourself and draw closer to God and – in the midst of all the devastation around us – you will make an unexpected discovery. He loves you. He loves the Toowoomba Region and all of its people.

    Whatever happened, God has never stopped loving us. The Bible verses of 1 Peter 5 encourage us to position ourselves before God. They say: “Humble yourself.” But then these same verses immediately continue with the assurance that we have a loving God. They say: “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” He can get us through anything. If we only trust in the goodness of God, then this can be the best time of experiencing more of his love.

    Before the flooding of our city I was on holidays and remember that one of the more striking news items was the upcoming marriage between the 84-year-old founder of a men’s magazine and his 24-year old playmate. I was thinking about this story and then I was thinking about our culture. The newspaper that I was reading was not critical of the marriage and – today – it is not for me to make any further comments either. But who are we? Are we without God and, therefore, our life is meaningless? We live a few years, get as much money as possible – as quickly as we can – to make our existence as pleasurable and as comfortable as possible, amuse ourselves and just not think too deeply about the day that we will die.

    Yet – when the flash flood came, another set of values was resurfacing: mateship, the courage of volunteers, people making sacrifices for each other. We rediscovered – and are rediscovering – community and family which was – and is – a blessing. If you want – God gave us an opportunity to reassess what we all need the most and what builds and sustains a community – our city and the region – that is: love, making sacrifices for each other. Then, the “inland tsunami” – the dramatic pictures of cars and people hurling down a torrent of muddy water – the endless repetition of these images on TV – shocked us.

    I was in shock. People came here for some shopping and the next minute they were swimming for their lives. The unexpected wall of water shattered our sense of safety. Life was not safe – not even in Toowoomba – and then we further panicked in our super-markets, stripping the shelves of milk and other necessities – often without considering others. Maybe we did learn that we are not in control. God is and this is the time to reconnect with him and discover that he is love.

    I read again what 1 Peter 5 promises to those that humble themselves before God. The words say: “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” I don’t know what you are going to make of all of this but I want to close by spelling out the most compelling reason why we can trust that God has never stopped loving us. I want to speak about the cross of Jesus Christ. If we were honest, we would concede that God does not owe us anything. We are not that keen on seeking him and we are not that keen on submitting our lives to him.

    When Jesus came, he introduced himself as the only Son of God – who had been with him from the beginning (in heaven) – and Jesus was holy as God the Father was holy – without sin – perfect in love. He also told people to humble themselves before God – (like we want to do today) – and he demonstrated the goodness of God by healing the sick and driving out demons. He loved them. Yet, the people around him were like us and ended up killing him by nailing him to a cross because human pride does not want to submit to anything – not even God.

    Only, this did not stop God loving us. In fact – for this very reason Jesus came. He knew that we would kill him but he purposed to die for us. He purposed – in agreement with God the Father – that his death would be the sacrifice which would grant forgiveness – and the unwavering favour of God – for all of us. Jesus died so that we would not have to die. He died so that we would live – with him, whom God the Father raised from the dead after three days in the grave. Do you understand his love?

    In our current world the reign of God is contested by evil and – according to the Bible – anyone that is not prepared to humble themselves before God will remain in the realm of evil – even after death. Yet, Jesus loved us and keeps loving us. He came to overcome evil – including the evil in our own hearts. Trust his death. Trust the blood which was holy and poured out for you on the cross. On his account we receive forgiveness and the assurance that God’s love will never forsake us. Then, when we die, we will come to a place that has been prepared for us – by God – where no disaster will ever touch us again.

    Can you humble yourself? Can the people of Toowoomba and the region humble themselves before God? I don’t know. You may have to answer that but there is a God and he loves us in Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 5:6-7: “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand . Cast all your anxiety on him because He cares for you. Amen.
