Dear family & friends in Christ,

Yesterday on Tuesday 12th March at the City of Casey Council Planning Committee Meeting, the Council approved the proposed mosque in Doveton next to CTFM future home.

8 Councillors voted in favour, 1 was absent, and 1 great woman of God, Rosalie Crestani, was the only Councillor who voted against the mosque.

She did not back off, taking on the fight all by herself.  It is so sad that political correctness has so infiltrated all offices of the federal, state and local government, that they no longer can see what is right from wrong.

You may click the following links to watch and read media reports.  (watch between 7:17-9:27)

Community concerns were literally completely overlooked and ignored,  even though at least one resident who opposed the mosque had a death threat and some others were intimidated. Already some of the residents have put their houses up for sale. This is a very sad day in Australia, where so many government officials no longer stand for the truth. In the CTFM vs Islamic Council of Victoria Court Case around 6-7 years ago, the VCAT Judge stated that truth was irrelevant.

I want to personally thank everyone who prayed and supported us. Unfortunately, even though there were more than 2000 people complaining against the mosque, it was still approved.

When we initially lost the Court Case for Freedom of Speech at VCAT, many were very sad, but glory to God that although we lost a battle at VCAT, we won the war.  We won the Supreme Court Appeal in the Court Case for Freedom of Speech.

So, we are ready for a fight. The gates of hell shall not prevail against the army of the Lord. Please pray as we prepare to take this Council decision to the next level (VCAT /Supreme or High Court) in order to stop the mosque from being built next to CTFM future home in Doveton.

I know some of you might tell me to love the Muslims and let them build the mosque next to us. May I kindly ask you, have you even witnessed or won ONE Muslim to Jesus??? Maybe for that case, when did we last talk to someone about Jesus??? Europe did the same 20 years ago and now they regret it.

I have lived, worked, witnessed and won Muslims for Jesus in Saudi Arabia, baptising them in the Red Sea. You must love the Muslims with all your heart, but you also need to stand strong against the spirit of Islam. We cannot and must not support in any way or form most of the teachings in the Quran.

After the Council’s decision, all the media were interviewing me. About 15 Muslims were standing on my left, some of the residents to my right and many from CTFM. After I finished the interviews, I felt led to turn towards the Muslims, then shook their hands and told them that I love them very much, but I do not approve of the teachings of the Quran.  They were very surprised, but they responded very well and wanted to meet with me for a discussion, for which I gladly agreed.

Muslims respect those who have guts. They treat in general our kindness as a great weakness. We must stand united and stand strong. The user friendly church will destroy God’s prophetic plans for Australia, as it has hardly achieved anything significant so far. On the contrary more people are leaving the church than those who are joining the church.

Rise Up Australia and take your stand for Jesus and your nation.

Please pray for the CTFM Board & Elders as we prayerfully consider our next move in the mosque battle. Where there is vision. There is always provision.

Yours in Christ,

Pr Daniel Nalliah

    God Bless you.

    I am a Catholic by the way. I have lived in a Muslim country – Indonesia and have a fair knowledge of Islam.

    Most Australians are catatonic about what could possibly happen here. I have seen for myself what does happen! Frightening.

    By all means let the muslims build their mosque at Doveton nextdoor to Pastor Danny Nalliah’s church. (The Age 13/3) But on a couple of conditions. That the height of the mosque is no higher than Pastor Danny’s building. Why? Because according to the Muslim mentality a mosque must be higher than any nearby non muslim place of worship as a symbolic way of expressing the superiority of Islam over all other religions. Also the use of loudspeakers should be forbidden for the call to prayer. Why? Because again according to Muslim mentality, the distance the sound of the call to prayer goes implies ‘muslim territory’. I am sure many of the residents of Doveton and the surrounding suburbs would not like to consider themselves living in Muslim territory. Most of them think they are living in Australia. Of course these little nuances of Muslim thought are generally not appreciated by most fair minded, tolerant Australians who often think all religions are the same. Muslims however have other ideas. Why, once the mosque is up and running five times a day the call to prayer will go out, explicitly repudiating the beliefs of their Christian next door neighbours, namely, God is One, not, as Pastor Danny and his Christian flock believe, One God in Three Persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Incidently muslims erroneously believe the Christian Trinity is Father, Mother, Son. ) So, how would you like someone proclaiming over your fence five times a day, ‘What you believe is wrong and what we believe is right.’? Ah tolerance! It seems we have become selective in its application in Australia.

    Thought you might like to read this.

    Let’s Go With the Dutch – but why wait until 2013?

    The Netherlands , where six per cent of the population is now Muslim, is scrapping multiculturalism:

    The Dutch government says it will abandon the long-standing model of multiculturalism that has encouraged Muslim immigrants to create a parallel society within the Netherlands .

    A new integration bill, which Dutch Interior Minister Piet Hein Donner presented to parliament on June 16, reads:
    “The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural society model and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people.

    In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society play a central role.”

    With this change, the government steps away from the model of a multicultural society.

    The letter continues: “A more obligatory integration is justified because the government also demands that from its own citizens.

    It is necessary because otherwise the society gradually grows apart and eventually no one feels at home anymore in the Netherlands ..

    The new integration policy will place more demands on immigrants.

    For example, immigrants will be required to learn the Dutch language and the government will take a tougher approach to immigrants who ignore Dutch values or disobey Dutch law.”

    The government will also stop offering special subsidies for Muslim immigrants because, according to Donner;
    “It is not the government’s job to integrate immigrants.” (How bloody true).

    The government will introduce new legislation that outlaws forced marriages and will also impose tougher measures against Muslim immigrants who lower their chances of employment by the way they dress.
    More specifically, the government will impose a ban on face-covering, Islamic burqas as of January 1, 2013.

    Holland has done that whole liberal thing, and realized – maybe too late – that creating a nation of tribes will kill the nation itself.

    The future of Australia , the United States , UK and Canada may well be read here.

    NOTE: Muslim immigrants leave their countries of birth because of civil and political unrest “CREATED BY THE VERY NATURE OF THEIR CULTURE.”

    Countries such as Holland , Canada , the UK and Australia have an established way of life that actually works, so why embrace the unworkable?

    If Muslims do not wish to accept another culture, the answer is simple;

    “STAY WHERE YOU ARE!!” “Or go back to where you were!”

    I have written to Casey councilors at least three times – and again today after their decision to approve. You mention that some people were intimidated and threatened. I trust that is correct. I said to Councillors today, I would not be surprised if that actually happened.

    God bless you all at CTFM. I will back you if you fight, just like last time.

    Pastor Danny,

    I agree with your statement to love Muslims but stand strong against the spirit of Islam. May the Lord Jesus bless you and keep encouraging you to stand and not be discouraged by others.

    May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit,

    The rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous. If that plot of ground of yours is your territory, appointed to you by God, this word cannot be broken.

    Unless I have missed something somewhere, Pastor D. or his associates or descendants, remaining in the will and purpose of God, shall live to see this mosque come down.

    Well done Daniel, you are doing a fantastic job. Thank God we have someone like you who is willing to fight for this beautiful country.You are truly a man of integrity and honor, us Australians should be so appreciative to have an ambassador like you standing up for truth in order to protect this nation and its freedoms. Thank you for your willingness, passion and obedience to push forward with great courage and boldness. Melanie

  11. 11 Melanie

    Id also like to thank Rosalie Crestani for her willingness to stand in the City of Casey despite being unfavourable amongst the other Councillors she didn’t back down and continued to speak up for truth and in support of the local residents concerns as Councillors ought to do.I’m looking forward to the day that political correctness will be demolished and people can actually be real and speak from there heart not from somewhere else.. Well done Rosalie, keep up the great work! Love Melanie

    Dear Casey Council,

    When you approve the construction in your neighbourhood, please understand what you are doing.

    A mosque is not just a place of religious worship, it is also a centre of civil government of a parallel civilisation that has no intention of integrating in Australian society.

    Islam is also a civilisation that lives off the wealth of its host civilisation. It has an ideology and ethics which is totally foreign to ours.

    Its ultimate aim is the total Islamization of Australia.

    As sure as Kevin Rudd has presided over the opening of mosques in Afghanistan built with our taxes, your approval of this mosque is an act of treason.

    Your Faithfully,

    Dear Danny

    Do you have the Land and Environment Court in Victoria? That is the next level of Goverment that we go to after Local Government has made a planning decision.

    You need to come against freemasonry and witchcraft in the high places. Pull down the places of baal worship.



  18. 18 Michael

    Hi Pastor Danny,

    I want to share 1 Samuel 4:1-2. 1 Samuel 5:1-6 regarding what is happening about the council decision. When the presence of God comes, sinners will be convicted and want to be saved. How wonderful if the muslims next door to the church will be convicted. Also the word of God can be preached (in banner form on the church building).

    Also you need to conserve the financial resources to build the church and for the RUA party.

    God Bless,


  19. 19 Sasi

    Well done Pastor. I agree with your next step. You are such a great blessing to our country.

    God bless,


  20. 20 Meryl

    Dear Pastor Daniel,
    Thank you for standing firm on this issue. You are right in saying that so many ‘Christians’ are seen as weak by the Muslims. One wonders whether the church will wake up in time. I have one question to ask. I heard someone from the Muslim community claim that they had planned to build on their proposed site before they knew that Catch the Fire intended to build next door. Is there any documented proof you have seen of this claim or is it the belief that lying to ‘infidels’ is perfectly fine if it furthers their cause?
    Blessings and may God protect you. I do hope the meeting with the Muslims you mentioned is remarkable in its outcome.

  21. 21 Ruth

    Dear Pastor Nallliah,

    Is it really God’s will to use valuable resources to fight this in the Supreme Court? May I remind you that God is far, far greater than any Muslim – and being right next door, you can reach out to them in the opposite spirit, to see God’s will done.

    Please pray long and hard about your next step.

    God bless,

    Greetings, I personally know of some lovely Muslims, they love Australia & the people, also they love Christians & do not worry about us. Their concern is why we can’t be friends with them in Australia, & particularly regarding the building of the new Mosque? I can see some ups & downs re this, but honestly you are to have CTFM future premises next door & they haven’t complained & gone to the press re this, so really can’t we all live in harmony with our fellow folk who share our beautiful love of Australia? I agree I do not agree with Quran, but that is their religion & who are we as Christians to tell people what or what they cannot have for their religion. I remember my late father always saying to me – “Never get into discussions regarding Religions & Politics, my father was a beautiful christian & very well known in Baptist circles (I myself have left the church & go elsewhere), but we do have to get along with our fellow citizens.; Yes, I agree the trumpet etc. calling to prayer I would also not like it, but honestly we have to live with all people in this world & the sooner we can all do this the happier place the world would be! Yes, I agree Muslims do respect people with guts who tackle them, I also respect my ‘non-christian’ friends who tackle me, they have guts to do so as they know I will 100% speak up for my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ, we always have a wonderful time together & never lose respect for each other. I love ALL RELIGIONS OF THIS WORLD, God made EACH & EVERYONE OF US, surely we can put our differences behind us & get along with each other. I’m sorry for the neighbors, but if I was in their situation & had lived there for a long time & a Mosque to be built, well I’d have to learn to put up with it & love the Muslims. I just wonder how many of the people complaining are Christians? If any, I would sincerely trust they are not complaining!!

    Thanks for reading my email, perhaps it may give you all something to think & pray about – getting along with the Muslims & the building of the Mosque, I mean have the neighbours made a big fuss about the CTFM next door to what maybe their Mosque?? I’m sure they’ve not complained as much as the locals are etc.etc.
    Shalom & Blessings,

    Hi pastor,

    I stand with you in prayer I was reading a book by Larry Huch in the States where the homosexuals were having a gathering in this hall to promote their agenda the Christians went and prayed outside the building and prayed and pleaded the blood of Jesus and spoke to the spirit of immorality and the evening of the opening the electricity played up and they couldn’t do their function and this happened a few times and the homosexuals spent millions of dollars trying to fix it and it time they were not successful and they finally gave up.We too can pray that there will be major hiccups with their foundations and speak to the spirit of Islam that we will not allow it to come and reside in Victoria and in Australia.

    I am a missionary in Zambia and I read your emails and pray.God bless you

    In His Love,

    Dear Pr Daniel,

    In 1999 I went to Egypt, when there The tour guide occasionally pointed out churches that had a Mosque built on top of them. One stood out it was up high, no one could get to it; yet they had gone and put a Mosque on top of it. This disturbed me a little; it was almost as if they were using the buildings to make a statement of squashing out Christianity. Back then though I did not understand this feeling as I thought that their god was the same as ours (common misconception). I know better now!
    There was a church I was going to, I was/am being outcast because I was saying everything that you are because of my love for everyone here (including the refugees). If we can not protect ourselves in the future then how will we protect them (honest people that come here for protection and a safer life). I have been labeled a racist because I am white and I care enough to speak up.
    It is all a matter of perception, there is a picture at this church of two hands sorting the fish (Matt 6 I think). Everyone in that church thought it was a painting, it was not until the spirit moved me to point out to them that it was a very excellent drawing not a painting. We are being deceived in this country (world wide in fact).
    Even though you were born of the night and I was born in the day we are both the same to Jesus. Yet the our own country sees us as racist. Political correctness is wrong as it hides the truth in many ways, I feel it is a great tool for the enemy because without correction we fall off the straight and narrow path to Jesus, we become corrupt.
    My prayers are with you and for you brother.
    God Bless

    Why is Catch the Fire Ministries so afraid of having a mosque next to them! I thought we were on the winning side! I would think that this is a great opportunity to show them the Truth and God’s Love. The weapons of our warfare are strong and this would be a great opportunity for you to have specific prayer meetings to counteract theirs. Bless them, pray for them and see the Lord win this battle!

  29. 29 Ash


    Aren’t we called to “LOVE ALL THE PEOPLES OF THIS WORLD”, as opposed to “ALL THE RELIGIONS OF THIS WORLD”? There is only one true God and Christians know His Name! Jesus said … “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6). If we truly love all people then we will want to expose the deception they live under and introduce them to the true and living God.

  30. 30 Ian, Heather and prayer team

    Thanks for this news Ps Danny.
    We have a small prayer group every Mon morning. We prayed for you today. We will continue to hold you and your team up to the Throne of Grace. You have favour with God.”When a man’s ways please the Lord He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him”.(Prov 16:7) (also Is 59:19) We know that whatever the initial outcome, it’s God’s will for muslims to be saved. ( 2 Pet 3:9) The battle belongs to the Lord.(2 Chron 20:15) Let’s believe that in your dialogue with Muslims, key Islamic leaders will have encounters with CHrist. “The LOrd will build His CHurch and the gates of Hell will not prevail.” We believe an open door into the hearts of key Muslims has been created out of this set back. John Bevere says ” an opportunity is created out of setbacks”. Our group will continue in prayer concerning this, that The Holy Spirit will direct you in all of your decisions and course of action.
    Bless you, and love, Ian and Heather and prayer team

    Dear Councillor Crestanti
    I have just read of your brave stand. You are not alone. The angels stand with you, and God will bless you. Below is a Scripture which I sent today to my Christian friends:
    God bless you
    Beware of the false witness – the whisperings of the devil. Know that he uses Scriptures to confuse us. Know the Scriptures to use against the devil. Note how Jesus determined what Scriptures to use.
    From Chapter 4 of Matthew (from the authorized KJV)
    After 40 days and nights fasting in the desert: …..
    3 And when the tempter came to Him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
    4 But He (Jesus) answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone. But by every word that preceedeth out of the mouth of God.
    5 Then the devil taketh Him up into the holy city, and setteth Him on a pinnacle of the temple,
    6 And saith unto Him, If Thou be the Son of God, cast Thyself down: for it is written, He shall give His angels charge concerning Thee: and in their hands, they shall bear Thee up, lest at any time Thou dash Thy foot against a stone. (Note the contradiction – In v.3 the devil infers that the stones will be made into bread, and now he says the stone will cause an injury)
    7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord Thy God.
    8. Again, the devil taketh Him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth Him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; (Jesus owned all the Kingdoms. Don’t let Satan seduce you into thinking you don’t own what God has given you – the gifts, the blessings and a whole lot more. Jesus knew his rights, and persevered to maintain them)
    9. And saith unto Him, All these things I give Thee, if Thou wilt fall down and worship me. (Apart from our Triune God, no one is to be worshipped)
    10. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve. (Why didn’t Jesus tell Satan to ‘get lost’ before this? And what do we learn from His example and persistence?)
    There is no pressure to send this on but if you think it is of value to someone, please do.
