Strong quake in New Zealand collapses buildings
Feb 22, 2011 6:18 AM | By Sapa-AP

A powerful earthquake struck New Zealand’s already-bruised city of Christchurch, collapsing buildings, burying vehicles under debris and sending rescuers scrambling to help trapped people amid reports of multiple deaths.

The four-storey Pyne Gould Corporation building lies in ruin in central Christchurch. A strong quake hit New Zealand’s second-biggest city of Christchurch on Tuesday for the second time in five months, toppling buildings, causing “multiple fatalities,” trapping people beneath rubble and sparking fires. 

The 6.3-magnitude quake struck the country’s second-largest city on a busy weekday afternoon, in contrast to a major quake that damaged Christchurch last September but caused no deaths when it struck before dawn on a weekend. Police said there were reports of multiple fatalities from the latest temblor, while Prime Minister John Key told Parliament details of the deaths still were too shaky to confirm.

Witnesses said the quake destroyed the iconic stone Christchurch Cathedral, its spire toppled into a central city square, and police said there was a report of two buses crushed under falling buildings.

Live video footage showed sections of buildings collapsed into the streets, strewn with bricks and shattered concrete. Sidewalks and roads were cracked and split, and thousands of dazed, screaming and crying residents wandered through the streets as sirens blared.

Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker declared a state of emergency and ordered people to evacuate the city center.
“Make no mistake – this is going to be a very black day for this shaken city,” he said when asked about possible deaths.

The airport was closed and Christchurch Hospital was evacuated. Power and telephone lines were knocked out, and pipes burst, flooding the streets with water. Some cars apparently parked on the street were buried under rubble.

Some people were stuck in office towers and firefighters climbed ladders to pluck people trapped on roofs to safety.

“The details we have are extremely sketchy,” the prime minister told Parliament. “The worrying fear, of course, is that this earthquake has taken place at a time when people were going about their business – it is a very populated time, with people at work, children at school. Sadly, I cannot rule out that there have been fatalities.

“But we are aware of significant damage to buildings that had people in them at the time,” he said.
Key said people were being told to get out of the city for their safety.

New Zealand police said in a statement that there were reports of multiple fatalities in the city, including a report that two buses had been crushed by falling buildings. The police statement said there were other reports of fires burning.

Gary Moore said he and 19 other colleagues were trapped in their twelfth floor office after the stairwell collapsed in the quake. He did not know if people on other floors were trapped.

“We watched the cathedral collapse out our window while we were holding onto the walls,” Moore said. “Every aftershock sends us rushing under the desks. It’s very unnerving but we can clearly see there are other priorities out the window. There has been a lot of damage and I guess people are attending to that before they come and get us.”

The multistory Pyne Gould Guinness Building, housing more than 200 workers, has collapsed and an unknown number of people are trapped inside. Television pictures showed rescuers, many of them office workers, dragging severely injured people from the rubble. Many had blood streaming down their faces. Screams could be heard from those still trapped.

Parker, the mayor, said he was on the top floor of the city council building when the quake hit just before 1 p.m. local time, throwing him across the room.

“I got down onto the street and there were scenes of great confusion, a lot of very upset people,” he said. “I know of people in our building who are injured and I’ve had some reports of serious injuries throughout the city.”

The U.S. Geological Survey said the temblor was centered five kilometers from the city at a depth of four kilometers. A 5.6-magnitude aftershock hit shortly after 11 kilometers east of the city at a depth of six kilometers.

“When the shaking had stopped I looked out of the window, which gives a great view onto Christchurch, and there was just dust,” said city councilman Barry Corbett, who was on one of the top floors of the city council building when the quake struck. “It was evident straight away that a lot of buildings had gone.”
Christchurch has been hit by hundreds of aftershocks since a 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck on

September 4, which wrecked hundreds of buildings, and caused an estimated four billion New Zealand dollars ($3 billion) in damage, but no deaths.

A strong aftershock in December caused further damage to buildings.The city was still rebuilding from those quakes when Tuesday’s temblor hit.

The city is home to about 350, 000 people and is considered a tourist center and gateway to the South Island.

New Zealand sits on the Pacific “ring of fire” – an arc of earthquake and volcanic zones stretching from Chile in South America through Alaska and down through the South Pacific. It records more than 14, 000 earthquakes a year – but only about 150 are felt by residents, and fewer than 10 a year do any damage.

    Hi,

    It might be of interest to know that Christchurch has had its own ‘wizard’ for many years, known as ‘The Wizard of Christchurch’ who would often perform or speak in Cathedral Square ( the site of the now severely earthquake-damaged Cathedral). From about 1990, this wizard (Ian Channell) was even proclaimed ‘The Wizard of New Zealand’ by the then Prime Minister, Mike Moore.

    For more details, see:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wizard_of_New_Zealand

    A google search reveals more about this person.

    Occultic practices are prevalent everywhere in the world, and earthquakes and ‘natural’ disasters don’t necessarily occur everywhere where these take place. Sadly, a number of Christian churches in Christchurch have also been damaged or destroyed.

    Regards,

    Marc

    AWFUL SHAKING in CHRISTCHURCH
    -by Andrew Strom.

    It was with terrible sadness that I learned yesterday of another huge
    earthquake hitting the New Zealand city of Christchurch. It has only
    been 2 months since we left that city and we have many dear
    friends there. The first earthquake last year had no fatalities but
    this one looks to have many dead and injured.

    I want to share a few things about our time in Christchurch that left
    me quite disturbed and concerned when we left. But I want to be
    sensitive because of the terrible sadness associated with this new quake.

    As some of you know, one of the main things that I hoped to do
    in Christchurch after the first quake was to organize a large open
    worship event in the city – to praise and glorify God that nobody
    had been killed even in a huge 7.1 earthquake. I found that no such
    event was being planned, but there were thousands of evangelical
    Christians in Christchurch, and I felt very strongly that it was
    important for us to publicly glorify God for the miracle of surviving
    such a disaster with no-one killed. The place was traumatized and
    it was obvious that a sensitive Worship event would do much good –
    and even many non-Christians would likely attend. But sadly it was
    not to be. And this is the disturbing part.

    I have organized large events before, so the Christian Radio network
    knows me – and quickly agreed to promote the event for free. The
    PA sound people also agreed to supply excellent sound for a very
    low cost. And the Christchurch City Council couldn’t have been
    more helpful. Everything was looking good. But then we ran up
    against the Christian leaders.

    One of the main “networking” Pentecostal leaders in the city told
    me that we could count him OUT of any support for the event. Then
    I spoke personally with the Dean of Christchurch Cathedral who
    told me that we could NOT use the main Square in Christchurch
    for a worship event for the whole Body. (Today this man’s Cathedral
    lies in ruins. It had survived the first quake, but it did not survive
    this new one).

    I called a number of prominent pastors and worship bands around
    Christchurch. I said we had the support of Radio, the Council, the
    sound and everything. No response. Worship bands not interested.
    Pastors not returning calls. (You might think they were busy after
    the quake – but remember no-one died and Christchurch was up
    and running pretty fully after only a couple of weeks). I simply
    couldn’t understand it. The evangelicals of Christchurch had made
    no public acknowledgement of God at all – no public worship for
    this miraculous escape – no public glorifying of Jesus. Even the
    secular News and the politicians were calling it a “miracle”. People
    were traumatized everywhere. Wasn’t it a “no-brainer” that we
    should be doing such a thing? Doesn’t God deserve public praise
    after protecting so many people from harm?

    In fact, it was such a no-brainer that the secular people themselves
    decided to do something. A number of the top bands and musicians
    from New Zealand came down and gave a free concert in the park
    for the traumatized city. It was heavily advertised on Radio – and
    20,000 people showed up. Of course it was a secular event – not
    Christian. The Pentecostals, Charismatics and Evangelicals of
    Christchurch had made virtually no public sound at all.

    I felt strongly that I could not push things any further without some
    basic support from the church. We managed to hold a couple of
    outdoor concerts for the homeless, and got involved with distributing
    “care packages” and things, but I was so disappointed. In fact I was
    more than disappointed – I was alarmed and deeply disturbed. I even
    told some friends that it was “dangerous” to offer no public praise
    after God has just so obviously saved your city. I felt so strongly
    about it – and deeply saddened for the state of the Body of Christ.
    But I could do nothing more.

    On December 17, 2010, my family departed from Christchurch. On
    December 28th we boarded a plane for Australia. I believe it may
    be some time before we ever return.

    My heart truly goes out to the people of Christchurch – and to all
    the world so poorly served by the church of our day. This was truly
    one of the worst “lost opportunities” that I have ever witnessed in
    all my years with the church. And Christchurch was truly one of
    the most beautiful cites I have ever seen. The people are so dear
    to us. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, my friends. May
    God bless and protect you all in these dark times.

    Hi CTFM

    My ministry has been to educate the mainstream churches of the occult background of labyrinth worship and meditation.

    Christchurch Cathedral and St Lukes of Christchurch have continued this practice and been hit by the earthquakes.

    I have heard from God that this is a significant reason for him releasing his protection from their churches

    God Bless

    Yes I will and have been praying….

    I was in a train today with a whole carriage of Red Cross volunteers who are about to fly over to Christchurch….they have not long
    returned from Brisbane floods….but they did say that out of these things the heroism and bonding of people is wonderful and that many good things happen int he worst of disasters….one man has been doing disaster work for 30 years and this will be his last job…he said we never think it is going to be our area affected…but everyone is vulnerable….

    A New Zealand young man was with us and he said ‘blessed are those who persevere and trust the Lord..’ he is concerned for the north island…..the volcanoes

    One woman knew someone who had actually hired a helicopter from the north island to take family who had lost loved ones in the
    quake…..and to take people back to the north island to be housed and looked after….

    God be with them all

    Will do and don’t forget those who had to lose limbs to be freed.

    I hate satan for this.

    I also pray that some government somewhere around here asks people to pray together and stop this evil that is happening, may we search our hearts?

    Things have been very bad for New Zealand since the Climate tax was brought in.

    It’s a tax that is there to support One World Government and I don’t believe our Lord and Savior wants that for us in this region….

    Please pray for us too!!

    GOD Bless and God’s Love,

    Hello Pastor Daniel!

    Thankyou, I sure am praying for Christchurch, as we have lovely missionary friends living there, & praise the Lord they are doing well. What an amazing time in our history that we are living in.

    May I ask you a question. We prayed at our prayer meeting for a vibrant christian girl who has hard to diagnose medical symptoms of fever, weakness, exhaustion etc. We prayed for her to be healed. She is going to a Bible college in Canada in May. As I rebuked a spirit of infirmity over her, she collapsed on the floor, in terrible pain , temp. rose violently, & she was writhing on the floor. her eyes changed, & 3 of us felt we were looking at a demonic being, who glared at us, & the girl tells me, she felt a grip on her neck, & a voice said to her, “I will not let you go’.

    We prayed against this thing in Jesus name, & she calmed down, but I know she is not yet delivered. We have agreed to pray & fast, & meet on Mon. to pray, believing she will be delivered. I am concerned she is due to preach on Sun. evening.She is a very prophetic girl, & has asked us to pray for deliverance for her. Both her parents are Christian doctors who are concerned for her medically. I believe it is spiritual, as I saw the manifestation of the evil one.

    My Question. Can we just rebuke this in Jesus name? I noticed a change when the worship team began praising? does this demon have to be named? Should she preach?

    How would you suggest we do this? I see a clash of kingdoms warring for her life. Her name is Mia, & she loves Jesus & wants to be free. I am an elder in her church, & anointed with oil for healing & then all hell broke loose. 3 of us are praying & fasting, & Mon. is our day of prayer & fasting.

    Can you give me some wisdom here?

    Thankyou, & bless you for all you do & are in & for the kingdom of Jesus.

    Ps. Danny,

    I live in Forest Lake and was at the meetings last weekend. I also receive your emails.

    At one of the meetings you mentioned a prophecy. I received an email about a prophecy given at a Labrador church on the Gold Coast by a Kenyan doctor re the floods in Qld. I think this is the one you referred to.

    My question is: If we believe this man to be a prophet and he received this prophecy from God, is it not our duty to make the citizens aware of it? I would appreciate a reply from you.

    Praise JEHOVAH; Shalom my Sisters & Brothers in CHRIST JESUS. Many of us have Prayed here in Western Australia; THEREFORE–We ALL should Pray that the CHRISTians in New.Zeal. Repent, Turn Back To JESUS & The CROSS At Calvary NOW As JESUS CHRIST is on HIS way back. Praise JEHOVAH Always

    The SOVEREIGN ALMIGHTY MOST HIGH GoD is try to send HIS MESSAGE to the WHOLE world that it’s PROFAINING HIS NAME, AND TRAMPLING THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST UNDERFOOT ; ESPECIALLY HIS DAUGHTERS AND SONS

    I Saw on TV; many in Queensland who were guzzling & downing ALCOHOL on a Sunday when ALL of them should have been at Church REPENTING & Thanking JEHOVAH that HE did not WIPE ALL of them off the face of the Earth

    All turmoil that’s happening in Australia is a WAKEUP call from JEHOVAH for Australia to TURN BACK TO HIM, REPENT, AND GO BACK TO CHURCH AND WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND SONGS

    So simple & easy Folks. Australia had & has been spared for many years of PUNISHMENT FOR ALL IT’S SINS; BUT HAVE NOT AND /OR DIDN’T REPENT, AND ALL THAT’S HAPPENED MANY OF US COULD SEE IT COMING. AND THAT GOES FOR NEW ZEALAND

    When anyone builds on swamps & under neath the ground & knows it’s not stable & will not be safe in an earth quake or any shaking, then those folk are very foolish. As JESUS Says, ” when you build on sand it will not stand; you have to build on solid rock/ground, as all other ground is sinking sand.”

    When a snake charmer in India handles a deadly poisionious cobra snake & he gets bitten & dies; that’s his fault, as he knew all about the cobra & he would die when the cobra bit him FOOLISHNESS.

    JEHOVAH DECLARES; ” My Children, Many, So Many, Of You Have Turned Away From ME; Many have Not Truly Heart Repented Of Your SINS Many Of You Are Luke Warm Many Of You Have Truly Forsaken MY BeLoved SON JESUS CHRIST And HIS BLOOD HE Shed At Calvary For You ALL And ALL Mankind Many Of You Have Lost Your First Love—-JESUS Many Of You Come To The LORD’s Table With UNREPENTED SIN–S In Your Hearts MY Children I YOUR BEloved Faithful, Merciful, Forgiving, Heavenly Father Hold Out An Olive Branch To You ALL Who Chooses To Repent, Turn Back To ME And—Will Truly Follow MY BeLoved SON JESUS And Take Up Your Cross And Follow HIM And Be Like HIM ” ” I THE LORD MOST HIGH HAVE SPOKEN “

    Lets declare over NZ and Christchurch, my Home Country and City, The very Words of our National Anthem on which NZ was founded. Lets pull it in by FAITH and call in to this most terrible happening, the miraculous Interventions of our GOOD and LOVING FATHER who doesn’t kill, rob or destroy.
    That is Satan’s realm! Even in this devastation, GOD can easily CHECK MATE the enemy’s plans of destruction. But maybe He wants to work with and is waiting for people who truly believe in HIS GOODNESS and will by FAITH AND LOVE stand in the Gap to pull in HIS GRACE, MERCY and BLESSING which will always turn the hearts of people to Him. Not too many can reject such Unconditional love when they truly SEE and FEEL and EXPERIENCE it.

    God of Nations at Thy feet,
    In the bonds of love we meet,
    Hear our voices, we entreat,
    God defend our free land.
    Guard Pacific’s triple star
    From the shafts of strife and war,
    Make her praises heard afar,
    God defend New Zealand.

    Men of every creed and race,
    Gather here before Thy face,
    Asking Thee to bless this place,
    God defend our free land.
    From dissension, envy, hate,
    And corruption guard our state,
    Make our country good and great,
    God defend New Zealand.

    Peace, not war, shall be our boast,
    But, should foes assail our coast,
    Make us then a mighty host,
    God defend our free land.
    Lord of battles in Thy might,
    Put our enemies to flight,
    Let our cause be just and right,
    God defend New Zealand.

    Let our love for Thee increase,
    May Thy blessings never cease,
    Give us plenty, give us peace,
    God defend our free land.
    From dishonor and from shame,
    Guard our country’s spotless name,
    Crown her with immortal fame,
    God defend New Zealand.

    May our mountains ever be
    Freedom’s ramparts on the sea,
    Make us faithful unto Thee,
    God defend our free land.
    Guide her in the nations’ van,
    Preaching love and truth to man,
    Working out Thy glorious plan,
    God defend New Zealand.

    Hi Pastor Danny, everyone.

    The following word was brought by a lady whom God called from the US to deliver to Pastors and Ministers here in NZ. The poignancy is not lost on me here. I have copied verbatim the letter she sent to leaders, however I have chosen to not include her interpretation at this time. Please pray for this nation, we dearly need the Lord’s protection again.

    Regards,

    ” Beloved, you are the chosen of my hand. I picked you out from among the rest and set you aside for myself. And yet there is an evil in the camp. Have you not known that I am a Holy God; I will not share my domain with any other! And yet false gods, idols, carvings of all kids have been brought into the holy places and given honour alongside me. See, I will not share my Glory with another, and you must not expect to find my blessing. How has anyone told you how to worship your God? And how have you so easily bowed in submission to the allegiance of false religions. I will not have it. Shall my Bride bring another into my marriage bed!? It will not be! You shall see great torment, both in the house of God and throughout in the earth. This land belongs to no man and no god but to me alone. If my people do not quickly turn and repent for their sacriledge, surely I will cause the earth- MY LAND – to cry out and sing forth. This will bring great torment, death, and a great fire. Many people will see the chasm. Leaders and shepherds, hear me alone. The blood of the many will cry out to you because you have failed to repent and turn from your wicked ways. This is not what I had planned for my Body in New Zealand. I have plans to grow you up into one another, creating in you the Life of Christ plainly seen in this nation. How can they see the love and great power of your God if they cannot see me in you? You say you love me, but you hate the church beside you. You refuse to help your neighbour, and you give no reach to the needy in the Body. This injustice must end! You are mine and you must come together and grow into the Head which is Christ. No more can you lie with false gods and call yourself holy. How are you seperated unto God? Wash your face, see with clear eyes, consecrate your faith to me alone. Church, my church, how can you say you believe me when you call on the power of kings and government to give you your name, your allowance, your provision? Turn your heart back to me. Feast your eyes on my eyes, and look quick into my face. I will sustain you, for I made you. And I do not require any other to help me say that you are enough. What I call Holy, let no one call unholy. Fear God or man. Choose you this day whom you will serve!”

    Pastor Daniel,
    You are unbelievable. And certainly amazing the way you pray for all over the country and the world.
    God is amazing for what He is doing through one man. We others can be so lax, yet we benefit from all you do. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I bless you, my brother in Christ.

    Dear Sisters may I ask all Christians to stand with us in prayer over our country and its political leaders who are now drunk with power to the extent of of blowing the country up like in 2007/2008 after the mugged elections.Is like they have forgotten what happened until the world had to come to our rescue.
    I beg all Christians to stand in prayer with us for God to intervene and manifest himself in the current wrangles.Let the President of Kenya His Excellence Hon Mwai Kibaki know there is God and his is not God he can bribe threaten but God is seeing

    Dear Jason,

    Thank you for your Godly encouragement in this endeavour. We are seeking to be part of the Reformation of true Love, Unity and the Holy fear of the Lord

    That Pastor Danny spoke of Sydney when here last. Our burden is for the Body of Christ in this area to grow and interact in real relationships, and to stand up as a corporate watchman, or an army dressed for battle and push the enemy back at the gates. The Sutherland Shire has many Christian groups and can be territorial, but some leaders have spoken openly of the divine desire for an open Heaven over the region called “The birthplace of Australia”, which includes the place where Capt Cook first landed. We believe “the Shire” to be strategic in His purposes for national revival and desperate for an expression of unity such as the RUA meetings provide.

    We’ve read through the information provided and are seeking the Lord for implementation directions. I believe I know two of the Sydney contacts, Harvey and Arvi, from early CLC days. Also reconnecting with Trevor has been a blessing, especially in exposing us to CTF network of believers.

    Will keep you posted on all developments,

    Every joint supplying…..

    Love in Yeshua,

    Andrew

    Dear Elizabeth,

    Not sure if you at Catch the Fire have heard about this wizard. Richard and I remember him when he was at Melbourne Uni aerly ’70’s What audacity and where were the Elders of the Gates? Thank God he left Melbourne.

    Blessings Beth

    WIZARD FROM WIKIPEDIA
    You will find some information about the “ Christchurch Wizard” in Ramon Benett’s book “SAGA” on page 208. I think you have the book.

    There is one paragraph about it. The key sentence reads:

    The city square – Cathedral Square – boasts a permanent, salaried wizard who blasphemes God, Christ and Christianity, while declaring the blessings of sodomy and other perversions.
    Life and career – Wizard from Wikipedia
    Ian Brackenbury Channell was born on 4 December 1932 in London. In 1951-53 he served in the Royal Air Force as a pilot-officer navigator and in 1963 he graduated from the University of Leeds with a double honours degree in psychology and sociology. Shortly afterwards he was recruited by the University of Western Australia Adult Education Board to run their community arts programme. In 1967 he joined the teaching staff of the newly opened School of Sociology at the University of New South Wales in Sydney.
    During the student upheavals, which began at this time, he created a direct action reform movement called Alf (Action for Love and Freedom) and implemented this with what he announced to be “The Fun Revolution”. The result was an astonishing revitalisation of the university referred to in the Sydney Morning Herald as “the university that swings”.
    His left-wing head of department, convinced he was mad, dismissed him without consultation for insufficient progress in his thesis in the sociology of art. The Vice Chancellor offered to do all he could and in 1969 Channell, who wanted to stay on campus and continue his social experiments, was able to persuade the VC to appoint him official University Wizard with a small honorarium paid jointly by the University Administration and the Student Union. He began to experiment with his own identity and allowed his driving license, social security ID, passport and other important documents to lapse so that he could become a fictional character… a radical new conceptual art form. After travelling to the World University Service headquarters in Geneva he received their backing to travel round Australian universities to promote his new revitalisation movement. Unfortunately whilst on tour in Melbourne in 1970 WUS in Australia was taken over by political extremists who cut him off without any explanation or communication.
    Picking himself up, and in a condition of considerable financial hardship, he was able to persuade Melbourne University Union Activities Department to appoint him their unpaid Cosmologer, Living Work of Art and Shaman. The Vice Chancellor gave him the use of the Old Pathology Lecture Theatre for his classes in synthetic cosmology and the Director of The National Gallery accepted the offer of his live body as a living work of art (on extended loan). At this time, shocked when the student Pacifist Society sent money to the Viet Cong, he founded Alf’s Imperial Army devoted to sensational but non-violent warfare and regularly organized battles on campus. He founded the Imperial British Conservative Party to provide a counterbalance to international capitalism and the various forms of national socialism.
    Having served his difficult apprenticeship in the puritanical atmosphere of the Australian universities, in 1974 the Wizard migrated to Christchurch in New Zealand and began to speak on a ladder in Cathedral Square. The City Council attempted to have him arrested but through ingenious fun revolutionary strategies he out-manoeuvered them and became so popular with locals and tourists that they made the square a public speaking area. Wearing his costume as a false prophet of the Church of England or his wizard’s pointy hat, he has been speaking there at lunchtimes in the summer months ever since and soon become a New Zealand icon featured in the guide books.
    Events that have delighted New Zealanders over the years include his confrontation with Telecom over the colour of public telephone boxes, his sometimes disastrous spells for the local rugby team, his humorous heckling of Christian evangelist Ray Comfort, his successful evasions of the compulsory census and, to everyone’s amazement, the three drought-breaking rain dances performed in Canterbury, Auckland and the Australian outback.
    With the help of the Mayor, Vicki Buck, the City hosted a Wizard’s Conclave in 1995 when visiting colleagues gathered to help build a wizard’s nest on top of the university library tower, to witness the New Zealand Wizard hatching from a giant egg in the city art gallery, sky diving whilst chanting a spell for a major rugby match and performing various rituals round the city. Soon afterwards, accompanied by 42 assistant wizards, he came down by Gondola from the Port Hills with tablets bearing the address of his new web site.
    In 1982 the New Zealand Art Gallery Directors Association issued a statement that in their opinion the Wizard was an authentic living work of art and the City Council appointed him Wizard of Christchurch. In 1990 the Prime Minister, Mike Moore, an old friend, appointed him official Wizard of New Zealand.
    He had been providing his services free until recently[when?] when the Christchurch City Council granted him a modest annual honorarium. The Wizard has only been able to live out his radically new conceptual life style because of the trust and financial support of his long time love, Alice Flett.[citation needed]
    On 8 September 2003 the Wizard’s large wooden house was destroyed by a fire, which Christchurch police are treating as arson. The Wizard, his partner and two boarders were lucky to escape with their lives, and the wizard’s extensive book and video collections were destroyed. The Wizardmobile, constructed from the front halves of two VW Beetles, was also attacked and damaged.
    When not actively performing The Wizard busies himself checking the validity of his cosmology or “theory of everything’ which includes elements found in such thinkers as the philosopher Whitehead, the sociologist Parsons, the physicist Prigogine, the systems analyst Jantsch and the biologist Sheldrake.
    The Wizard was awarded the Queen’s Service Medal in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list of 2009.

    The Wizard performs in Cathedral Square on weekdays from 1-2pm from November to Easter. He now spends a lot of his time in Oamaru, which has become famous for the artists and craftspeople who have moved there in recent years. He was present at the official re-opening of Oamaru Airport on 6 August 2006, and cast a successful spell to disperse the fog that was preventing the first flight from landing.[1]

    Praise JEHOVAH; Shalom my Sisters & Brothers in CHRIST JESUS. Many of us have Prayed here in Western Australia; THEREFORE–We ALL should Pray that the CHRISTians in New.Zeal. Repent, Turn Back To JESUS & The CROSS At Calvary NOW As JESUS CHRIST is on HIS way back. Praise JEHOVAH Always

    The SOVEREIGN ALMIGHTY MOST HIGH GoD is try to send HIS MESSAGE to the WHOLE world that it’s PROFAINING HIS NAME, AND TRAMPLING THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST UNDERFOOT ; ESPECIALLY HIS DAUGHTERS AND SONS

    I Saw on TV; many in Queensland who were guzzling & downing ALCOHOL on a Sunday when ALL of them should have been at Church REPENTING & Thanking JEHOVAH that HE did not WIPE ALL of them off the face of the Earth

    All turmoil that’s happening in Australia is a WAKEUP call from JEHOVAH for Australia to TURN BACK TO HIM, REPENT, AND GO BACK TO CHURCH AND WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND SONGS

    So simple & easy Folks. Australia had & has been spared for many years of PUNISHMENT FOR ALL IT’S SINS; BUT HAVE NOT AND /OR DIDN’T REPENT, AND ALL THAT’S HAPPENED MANY OF US COULD SEE IT COMING. AND THAT GOES FOR NEW ZEALAND

    When anyone builds on swamps & under neath the ground & knows it’s not stable & will not be safe in an earth quake or any shaking, then those folk are very foolish. As JESUS Says, ” when you build on sand it will not stand; you have to build on solid rock/ground, as all other ground is sinking sand.”

    When a snake charmer in India handles a deadly poisionious cobra snake & he gets bitten & dies; that’s his fault, as he knew all about the cobra & he would die when the cobra bit him FOOLISHNESS.

    JEHOVAH DECLARES; ” My Children, Many, So Many, Of You Have Turned Away From ME; Many have Not Truly Heart Repented Of Your SINS Many Of You Are Luke Warm Many Of You Have Truly Forsaken MY BeLoved SON JESUS CHRIST And HIS BLOOD HE Shed At Calvary For You ALL And ALL Mankind Many Of You Have Lost Your First Love—-JESUS Many Of You Come To The LORD’s Table With UNREPENTED SIN–S In Your Hearts MY Children I YOUR BEloved Faithful, Merciful, Forgiving, Heavenly Father Hold Out An Olive Branch To You ALL Who Chooses To Repent, Turn Back To ME And—Will Truly Follow MY BeLoved SON JESUS And Take Up Your Cross And Follow HIM And Be Like HIM ” ” I THE LORD MOST HIGH HAVE SPOKEN ”

    G’day folks,

    Below is a link to the NZ website which published the prophecy that a Rev Gray Theodore, a Maori Koumatua(Elder-or Tribal Leader) and Minister of the NZ Anglican Church spoke at their Dawn Service Ceremony in Commemoration of the Treaty of Waitangi, a very significant day for Kiwis……It was spoken with some fear and trepidation on the Ministers part since he has had it boiling inside of him for about 38yrs and that morning, 3 weeks ago, he could not contain the Words inside him any longer… Its a REAL WARNING!!!

    The rest is history, as they say, for once the Words are spoken, the speaker is first of all relieved but also has to take some or alot of flak. The prophet Jeremiah of the First Testament is an example- But we await with bated breath, And, with Prayers and intercession which would demand some actions from us, the Hearers of the WORD!

    I for one who studied Geography in Wellington and is fully aware of the ‘daily’ Risk of any one slightest movement or all of the 3 Major faults that runs through and past Wellington City and its suburb-it will be catastrophic of immense proportion when that will take place-And its not the question of will the faults be moved??,But When???

    [Rev. Gray did mention, not a date, but the month of JUNE , and not any particualr year, associated with that prophecy. Geographically speaking, the current and last years faults that have been moved at and around Canterbury Province and in the city surburbs of Christchurch, are all linked to the 3 major faults that run past Wellington right up to the north of the North Island.]

    Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

    Intercessor Kathleen has been a member of the Australian Indigenous Prayer Network (AIPN) for a number of years while she resided in Cowra NSW. We have prayed for her ministry there on occasions. Last year she felt the Lord lead her to move to New Zealand to be with her daughter. She has remained a member of the AIPN.

    Below are two emails she has sent very recently, yesterday and today, to Pacific coordinator Milo Siilata of New Zealand, with a copy to me as well.

    The emails contain a prophecy about New Zealand which the Lord gave her a few days before the massive earthquake in Christchurch at 12.51pm (NZ local time) last Tuesday 22 February.

    I send you these emails for your prayerful consideration, and prayer as the Holy Spirit may lead. You will note this prophecy contains the Lord’s call to New Zealand to enact 2 Chron 7:14.

    I have been told very recently by an NZ intercessor with whom I was in Israel last year that after the 4 September 2010 Christchurch earthquake, 7.1 on the richter scale, neither the city nor the church in the city gave public thanks to the Lord that no one was killed. There was also a large after-shock on Boxing Day last December which was ignored in similar fashion. The shallow 6.3 earthquake on 22 February came with no warning and caused great death and destruction.

    I just remind you of the floods, fires and cyclones in our nation in recent days, in which our Lord showed His mercy when many Christians cried out to Him. But in our case we had warning of what was coming (except in Toowoomba and the Lockyer Valley) and had time to do some preparation. Even so Australia need to enact 2 Chron 7:14 because of the deep sin of our church, our governments, and our peoples, present and past.

    With love in Christ Jesus,

    Subject: Prophy re Christchurch earthquake

    I cover this email with the precious Blood of Yeshua.

    Dear Milo,

    As discussed just now on the telephone. I have added further details I discussed with the Lord. Please feel free to simply write the prophetic words and eliminate the series of events leading up to them, if this feels right to you.

    The Lord spoke to me in the nightwatches. He said “I AM sending a flaming sword against New Zealand from the North to the South. It will be a Sword of Judgment. It will be SEISMIC.”

    I questioned the Lord, as to why, and He said because of the Churches and their apathy and sin.
    “Seismic, meaning earthquakes.?” He replied “Earthquakes and volcanoes”.

    The next morniing I told my daughter Talitha, and my spiritual Tongan daughter, Tupou, and we were all very distressed, but did not know what to do but to pray for New Zealand.

    FOUR DAYS LATER…..THE CHRISTCHURCH EARTHQUAKE

    We were so shocked!

    I asked the Lord what should I do with the information He had given me.

    He responded, “SPEAK TO THE LAND.”

    The Lord then reminded me of an incident which occurred in North Carolina in 1999. I had a friend who lived on land where slaves had been murdered in masses by Northern soldiers. The land was cursed. One day she phoned and said the Lord had instructed her to throw salt out her kitchen window onto the land. She did so in obedience, and phoned me immediately. Within 20 minutes, the land beneath me shook violently, with windows shaking and glasses falling from the shelves. I phoned the police, and other authorities and there was no record of an earthquake or sonic boom from NASA in Florida. The next day the paper described how the land shook for about a forty mile radius, and there was no explanation. I still have that article on file.

    The Lord said to me “The land shook off the blood of the slaves, the curse of the murders, when the land was cleansed with salt.”

    I asked the Lord more…..In time He responded….”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.”

    Again I was astounded at the Word of the Lord, so shared it with Ps. Donny McGregor of Generation Fire in Australia. Tupou Moala shared this Word at their gathering in Wentworth Falls this weekend, and all accepted it. Ps. Donny just wrote to me about this acceptance.

    I was very upset after the two minute silence for Christchurch, and went before the Lord again. He again said, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray,………and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways….”

    When I questioned Him again, asking if His people meant the churches, He replied “IF MY CITY, WHICH IS CALLED BY MY NAME, WILL HUMBLE ITSELF AND PRAY AND SEEK MY FACE AND TURN FROM ITS WICKED WAYS,THEN i WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SIN AND WILL HEAL THEIR LAND.” “City?” I replied. The Lord answered me “Yes, My city, called by My Name…CHRIST CHURCH…I WANT MY PEOPLE IN MY CITY, CHRISTCHURCH, TO PUBLICLY CALL FOR A DAY OF PRAYER AND REPENTENCE AND I WILL HEAL THEIR LAND.”

    I will leave this in your hands Milo. Thank you. I will send it also to Kris Schylder, and Ps. Donny McGregor.

    Shalom, Kathleen

    Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

    Below is a very stern word about God’s judgment on New Zealand commencing in Christchurch. The word was initially issued by Milo (of Samoan birth and now living in New Zealand) on 2 Dec 2010 after the 4 September 2010 Christchurch earthquake. Now, because many Christians have requested that Milo send it out again, he has edited it and re-issued it this morning.

    Firstly, I apologise to you all that I did not forward it on to you all when I received it on 2 December 2010….I don’t remember why I did not send it on to you all then.

    I now invite you to read Milo’s words very prayerfully and think about where our nation Australia stands before God today….after about 35 years of Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras, our divorce(for any reason) law , our turning from God, the decriminalisation of abortion in Victoria, 80,000 plus abortions per year in our nation, civil union laws in our states/territories, pro-choice radical feminists, who are in rebellion to God, in power in our parliaments and Emily’s List that gets them there, the multi-cult-ism of our nation, the current push for same-sex marriage etc, etc….. and most recently the bloodless coup d’etat last year….. that is what it really was …..that delivered the political leadership of this nation into the hands of a pro-choice radical feminist who :

    a. has publicly stated she personally doesn’t believe in God, having rejected Him after being brought up in the Word of God, and who now lives in a defacto relationship; and

    b. who,politically, was thrashed in the federal election she called last year in desperate haste, in my opinion, to be enthroned as Australia’s first female Prime Minister. In a drawn election outcome she then, again in desperation and with no integrity, chose to get into bed politically with the antichrist Greens party, and also three “independent ” members of parliament who are clearly embittered with the Coalition from previous experiences, and who were certainly not impartial when they made their choice to support a Labor/Greens minority government.

    Over the last couple of years we as a nation have experienced massive, deadly bushfires, massive floods with some deaths, the huge Cyclone Yasi which mercifully caused considerable destruction in a rural area, but no deaths etc.

    We need to consider what could happen next in our nation to get our attention if we as the Church do not repent of our sin, our materialism, our covetousness, our division, our apostasy, our religiosity etc…. our failure to show the glory, the light, and the love of God to the peoples of our land who so desperately need Jesus in these end times, but don’t know we are in the end times.

    I call you to press into God in repentance in these three days of prayer and fasting, and in the days beyond.

    With love in Christ Jesus,

    Kris

    “GOD’S JUDGMENT FOR NEW ZEALAND WILL START FROM CHRISTCHURCH!”

    In 1998, our son Samuelu received a word from the Lord that God’s judgements for New Zealand will start from Christchurch. That word on judgment was not a big deal for me since judgment is part of God’s plan for all nations in these end times. What really got me wondering though was – why Christchurch?

    The year of 1998 was a very significant year. It marked the Jubilee of the modern state of Israel since their Independence in 1948. Israel is the centre of the world regarding the purposes of God and whatever happens in Israel affects the whole world. During the All Nations Convocation in Jerusalem (ANCJ) in 1998, one of the words that came out loud and clear from the Lord was Hebrews 12:25-29 where God promised to once again shake the heavens and the earth.

    The double bombing of the U.S. embassies in Tanzania and Kenya on the 7 August 1998 killing 224 and injuring more than 4,500 marked the new season of Terrorism in the world. During the 8th South Pacific Prayer Assembly in Tonga 1998, the Lord gave us a whole new interpretation on Psalm 110 including His judgments for the whole world. The Anglican Cathedral at the heart of the Christchurch City that was destroyed during the 22 Feb 2011 earthquake aftershock is 110 years old.

    Releasing God’s Judgment on New Zealand – 27 November 2008

    On Thursday night 27 November 2008 after a meal with some friends in Kaiapoi, my wife and I dropped off a friend at the Christchurch CBD. As we drove by the Cathedral Square, the Lord commanded me to release His Judgment for Aotearoa New Zealand on that very night, from the city that bears His Name. At around 11pm, we were standing at the Christchurch Cathedral Square, where I simply proclaimed God’s Judgment for NZ in the Name of Jesus the Judge of all the earth.

    Air NZ crash near Perpignan France – 27/28 November 2008

    About 5 hours after I proclaimed God’s Judgment for New Zealand at the Cathedral Square in Christchurch; on the other side of the world in France, an Air New Zealand aircraft crashed killing all seven crew members on a test flight from Perpignan on the south of France over the Mediterranean Sea. Five of the seven crew members killed on this test flight were Kiwis (New Zealanders). This disaster happened in France on the 27 November, which was the 28 November in NZ due to the International Dateline. The 28 November 2008 was also the 29th anniversary of the worst air crash ever in the history of NZ. Air New Zealand Flight 901 (TE901) was a scheduled Antarctic sightseeing flight from Auckland International Airport in New Zealand. On 28 November 1979 the 14th flight crashed into Mount Erebus, Antarctica killing all 237 passengers and 20 crew members aboard.

    Why Christchurch?

    When I prayed for God’s judgment to be released for NZ at the Cathedral Square on 27 November 2008, I did not know how or when God would judge New Zealand, but I did know some reasons why it had to start from Christchurch:

    1. The South Island of New Zealand is the tail end of the longest (timewise) migration (Polynesian) from the Tower of Babel, making New Zealand the youngest nation in the world today. During the 3rd All Pacific Prayer Assembly in NZ in 2005, the Lord told us that the ‘Fall of Babylon’ will start from NZ. Two years before that in 2003, NZ made history when it became the first nation in the world to decriminalise Prostitution. Tim Barnett was the Member of Parliament for Christchurch Central and Parliamentary promoter of the Prostitution Law Reform Bill, which became law in 2003 legalising prostitution. In the Bible, ‘Babylon the Great’ is also known as “The Mother of Prostitutes and of the Abominations of the Earth” in Revelations 17. The Fall of Babylon the Great is recorded in Revelations 18. Christchurch is the biggest city on the South Island of NZ. On 31st, July 1856 Christchurch became a city by Royal Charter, making Christchurch the oldest city in New Zealand today. So if God were to judge New Zealand, Christchurch would be the logical place to start.

    2. Christchurch is the only major city in the world named after the Lord’s name ‘Christ’ which is derived from the Greek word ‘Kristos’ which means ‘anointed’. Christchurch is not only linked to God by its name, but at the heart of the city is the Christchurch Anglican Cathedral built in the shape of a cross. The so-called ‘Cathedral Square’ is not really a square but a Cruciform. So at the heart of this 155 years old city is a 110 years old church building and foundation in the shape of the cross or crucifix, which is the popular symbol for Christianity. It is a judgment principle of God to always start His judgment with His own people. Therefore it makes sense to start God’s judgment for NZ from the city that is called by His name.

    3. Many Christians also believe that the Christchurch Earthquake was prophetic of God’s judgments for His own Church. Over the years, many non Christian celebrations were held at the Cathedral Square, which was built and dedicated to God to be the spiritual heart of the city. During Buddha’s Birthday Celebration in 2007 at the Cathedral Square, the Cathedrals Dean Rev Peter Beck said that it was a great pleasure to see celebrations by many religious and cultural groups held each year at the Christchurch Cathedral. As Christians we respect the freedom of religion for all people, but never encourage nor participate in pagan idolatrous festivals that do not glorify God. The best way to love followers of other religions is to share with them about the only true God who is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and that the only way to this true God is through His only Son, Jesus Christ. After the first earthquake of Sept 4 in 2010, Andrew Strom tried to organise a Christchurch city wide ‘Thanksgiving Service’ for the miracle that no one died. He applied for the Cathedral Square as the venue but was turned down and the Thanksgiving Service never happened.

    4. Christchurch also became the first and only city of NZ that officially adopted a wizard for their city by the name of Ian Brackenbury Channell. The Wizard first arrived in Christchurch NZ in 1974 from England via Australia and started public speaking at Cathedral Square. In 1980, the Christchurch Council officially called him the “Archwizard of Canterbury”, in mockery of God and the ‘Archbishop of Canterbury’. In 1990, the Prime Minister of NZ the Honourable Mike Moore officially promoted the ‘Archwizard of Canterbury’ to the “Wizard of NZ”. In 2009, the Wizard was awarded a Queen’s Service Medal for his contributions to the Christchurch City. It was surprisingly a world first that a wizard be honoured by the Queen. The Wizard was a regular orator at the Cathedral Square, rousing the public with his controversial views on popular topics like God, Christianity, the Government, Women etc. I know God loves the Wizard as a person, but not what he represented.

    5. Christchurch through their homosexual former Member of Parliament (MP) Tim Barnett became the most influential city in NZ in passing ungodly laws in Parliament, namely the Prostitution Law Reform Bill and Civil Union Bill. Tim Barnett as the Member of Parliament for Christchurch Central was the Parliamentary promoter of the Prostitution Law Reform Bill, a Bill in his name, which became law in 2003 and thus made New Zealand the first country in the world to decriminalise prostitution. Tim Barnett (MP) was also the outspoken supporter of the Civil Union Bill, which became law on 9 December 2004 to establish the institution of civil unions for same-sex couples. New Zealand became the first country outside Europe to legislate for equal relationship status for homosexual (lesbian and gay) couples.

    Who is Responsible for the Christchurch Earthquakes?

    Before Christchurch rebuilds their city; they should seriously consider the reasons for this disaster. Most would see it as an act of nature, but this was just the beginning of God’s judgment for New Zealand in response to us as a nation. Therefore, the following people are clearly responsible for the Christchurch earthquakes:

    1. The Christian Church in NZ for our failures in the nation. A city or a nation is a reflection of the local church, and God will hold the church accountable for their cities and nation.

    2. The Parliament and Government of NZ for passing ungodly laws against the word of God.

    3. The Christchurch City Council for adopting a Wizard for their city, and Christchurch Central for electing a Member of Parliament who was instrumental in decriminalising prostitution in the nation.

    4. The whole nation of NZ which has become more ungodly by the day with our pursuit of pleasure rather than the face of God. NZ is also one of the most blessed countries in the world and yet most New Zealanders have failed to thank God or glorify Him for His blessings.

    What can we do as a nation to stop God’s Judgment? – REPENT!

    I believe that the whole nation including the whole Church must learn to repent. It is good to have services to pray for Christchurch, but we must do more than that. We must repent and turn to God for His forgiveness and restoration for the nation. The Church in Christchurch should gather to repent on behalf of their City. The Christchurch City Council must also repent and renounce any official ties with the Wizard. The Government must also repent of all the ungodly laws passed in Parliament. Repent means to turn from the errors of our own ungodly ways and humbly submit ourselves to God for His forgiveness, guidance and restoration in our lives and nation. I truly believe that true repentance will stop God’s judgment for the nation including the devastating earthquakes in Christchurch.

    Repent therefore and be converted that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence (face) of the Lord, and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before “whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things” which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began. Acts 3:19-21

    Christchurch is just the beginning of God’s judgment for NZ

    If Christchurch is just the beginning for NZ, then the rest of us in NZ must now brace ourselves for our turn. The good news is that if we in our various cities and towns start to repent now, God will withdraw His judgment. God does not delight in killing or hurting people. His purpose is to humble the nations and draw them to Himself in preparation for His Kingdom to manifest on earth.

    Unfortunately, secular humanism devoid of God is the most popular mindset in NZ today. I also believe that the Nation, Government and even Christchurch are not really ready for any collective repentance yet. The nation may not be ready to bow the knee to King Jesus now, but future judgments will. The softening of NZ has just begun with the oldest city in the land.

    The earthquake on the 4 September 2010 was estimated by ‘The Reserve Bank of NZ’ to cost $5 billion NZD and the aftershock on the 22 Feb 2011 at $12 billion NZD. The financial impact of these earthquakes will affect the whole nation for some time. The mental and emotional stress for the victims is overwhelming and we cannot even put any cost to the lives of those who have died. There have been more than 5,000 aftershocks in Christchurch after the 4th Sept 2010 earthquake including the big one on the 22 Feb 2011. The chance of a third major aftershock with even more devastations for Christchurch is a real possibility.

    Prayers and a Word for Christchurch!
    1. Pray for a Christchurch city wide gathering to repent before the Lord.

    2. Pray that God’s destiny for Christchurch be fulfilled to the praise of His glory. I believe that the new Christchurch will be more beautiful than the old.

    3. Pray for all victims of the earthquake especially those grieving the loss of their loved ones who have died or are still missing.

    4. Pray that many people will turn to God after this earthquake.

    5. I asked the Lord for a word for Christchurch City and He gave me Psalm 78.

    God’s double strategies to draw the nations to Himself

    1. Shaking the nations (through wars, famines, diseases, economic failures, earthquakes, hurricanes, flooding, tsunamis, asteroid strikes etc.)

    2. His increasing glory (manifest Presence) that is about to cover the whole earth as the waters cover the sea (Isaiah 40:5; Habakkuk 2:14).

    I was very upset after the two minute silence for Christchurch, and went before the Lord again. He again said, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray,………and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways….”

    When I questioned Him again, asking if His people meant the churches, He replied “IF MY CITY, WHICH IS CALLED BY MY NAME, WILL HUMBLE ITSELF AND PRAY AND SEEK MY FACE AND TURN FROM ITS WICKED WAYS,THEN i WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SIN AND WILL HEAL THEIR LAND.” “City?” I replied. The Lord answered me “Yes, My city, called by My Name…CHRIST CHURCH…I WANT MY PEOPLE IN MY CITY, CHRISTCHURCH, TO PUBLICLY CALL FOR A DAY OF PRAYER AND REPENTENCE AND I WILL HEAL THEIR LAND.”

    Dear Milo, and Network,

    An addendum to yesterday’s Prophecy for Christchurch.

    COVERED BY THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF YESHUA

    When the flood of Noah’s time covered the earth, the earth and it’s structure, would have still been in it’s perfect state from the time of creation. The enormity of the flood and the pressures of the waters from below and above, would have caused the plates of the earth to fracture, creating the first earthquakes and volcanoes, and uplifts of new mountains, and deeper seas. The earth was now cursed, through sin.

    All through the Word, God instructs us to speak to Creation in the name of His Son. He has given us this authority. Moses speaking to the Sea, Jesus speaking to the storm to be still, and to the fig tree to be cursed and die, speaking to the dead to be resurrected, and telling us to speak to the mountain, so that it may be moved. So many examples of the authority He has given us in His Name, to speak to the elements, the earth, and His creation.

    So, when He said in the Prophecy for Christchurch, for us to “SPEAK TO THE LAND”, I believe He wants us to speak to the structures of the land, the plates, and all that causes earthquakes, fractures, and upheavals and volcanoes. Firstly must come repentence, forgiveness, and reconciliation, and then we, as His People, can use the authority given to us by Yeshua, to SPEAK TO THE LAND AND THE LAND WILL OBEY. A call to at least a day of prayer, from leaders, would touch His heart, and bring obedience to His call in 2 Chronicles 7:14.

    Hope you enjoy this amazing truth, and that we, as His Bride, will use our authority to follow His instructions, to the saving of many lives, as without this obedience, much worse is to come to this land of New Zealand.

    Shalom, Kathleen

    Dear Pastor Danny,

    As you well now, it is that time of the year again when the modern day Sodom, Sydney, “celebrates” its Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. It is always deliberately timed too, in order to spit in the face of the few remaining true Christians, to coincide as closely as possible to the start of the 40 days of Lent – the preparation for the holiest of holy days, Easter.

    This year, the insult of this abomination in the eyes of God is amplified. Only this week, as aftershocks still rumble and remind us of our brief mortality, rescue workers in the Christchurch earthquake have officially abandoned hope of finding further survivors and are now simply referring to it as a “recovery operation”. Do the sodomites even pause to consider that some may still be grieving? No. Their lasciviousness knows no restraint, even in these dark times as the survivors in Christchurch mourn their dead. At times when I pray, I feel much like Lot in Sodom (and of the excellent study example here) and I wonder how it is that our Lord may smite the good people of Christchurch, yet allow this depraved procession to corrupt our children year and year out with impunity.

    Of course I curtail these thoughts the moment I have them – to question is to doubt and let faith waiver. But it is nevertheless a trying time, and at times like these I turn to the ministry, and your leadership for guidance.

    We cannot, and indeed should not, question the divine wisdom of tragedies such as those that befell Christchurch. Some of those taken were no doubt taken for higher purposes beyond our ken. Others, such as the employees of CTV NZ, by all accounts a government subsidised free-to-air pornography channel akin to our very own SBS, may well have been punished for complicity in wickedness. But even then, as I watch the debauched parade of the Mardi Gras down our Oxford St (there were even children marching in it this year), I could not help but shake with inner rage at the injustice of it all. Oh, to smell the sulfurous retribution of Abraham’s day. To cleanse the slate and start anew, a world built by and for the word of God.

    I know it is best to not indulge in these daydreams as a lesser mortal, but I am finding it harder and harder day by day to sit idly by and watch this godlessness engulf our world. It is a game of inches, a slow creep that is eating away at our moral fabric and reweaving it with depravity and baseness. What began as “tolerance” and “equal opportunity” for homosexuals in the workplace now has our children sitting next to homosexuals on buses, going to schools to be taught by homosexual teachers and be indoctrinated into believing it is OK to be homosexual and to disregard all our churches teachings as archaic nonsense.

    It is times like these Pastor Danny that I dearly wish that you and our ministry were more vocal and proactive against this evil that is overwhelming us. Someone needs to make a stand, if only for our childrens’ sakes. Our brothers in Westboro Baptist are fighting the decent fight in America. And leading by example are the people of Uganda, under the guiding light of Exodus International, in restoring the sanctity of Leviticus 20:13 –

    If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.

    It is my hope Pastor Danny that you can lead our ministry to support and join this growing movement to reclaim our world before all is lost. I fear it may already be too late.

    Sincerely,

    Yours in prayer,

    Mrs. Florence

    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.
