Dear family & friends in Christ,

1) Thank you so very much for praying and standing with us yesterday for the VCAT hearing, which went very well, lasting only 15 minutes.

CTFM was represented by our Planning Consultant and our Solicitor. The City of Casey Council was represented by their legal firm. There was no one representing the mosque.

The Deputy Commissioner of VCAT walked in and took her place. She apologised several times about the error caused by VCAT in overlooking our application against the mosque?s permit being issued. She also acknowledged that the application made by CTFM was valid and that it was made within the 21 day period.

Thus, she stated that the permit issued by the City of Casey Council to build the mosque was invalid and instructed the Council to revoke the permit, for which the Council?s lawyers agreed to do so.

Pr Daniel stated, “I am very appreciative of the fact that VCAT accepted its mistake and apologised. However, we had to pay for the VCAT’s mistake. I think that is not at all fair.?

In the month of July, VCAT plans to hear our case against the mosque being built in Doveton next to our proposed new premises for CTFM. We will keep you posted over the next few months.

This is only a small win at this point. We need to pray that the mosque will not be built in Doveton. Please pray for God’s clear guidance for our legal team.

    Hi Guys,

    It was so good to hear about the findings of Doveton mosque.

    I am excited at the possibility that council may now cancel the building of the mosque at Doveton!

    With Kindest Regards,

    In our Glorious Saviour Christ Jesus!

    Hi Jason,

    Contact your Members for State Parliament in Victoria. Tell them about this. Ask them for compensation from VCAT.

    Amen, I not only with stand in agreement with you, but also pray the HUGE mosque will NEVER be built ANYWHERE in Australia. Australia belongs to JESUS, its the Great Southland of the Holy Spirit. Amen

    Dear Ps Daniel

    Thank you for the latest information regarding VCAT.

    I have recently received the Jewish Weekly Review which is quite an informative newspaper being issued here in Perth WA. What is most interesting is an article that I would be grateful if you could read it. Not that you don’t know about the methods used by Islamists because it has happened to you, as a court action was issued against you. However, to strengthen the churches stand against the attitudes of Islam beliefs “having a form” of appearing peaceful, I thought the article from “Atlas Shrugs” titled “The terrible extent of Islamic deceit and betrayal”. is what I would like you to read to reinforce their deceitful plans to infiltrate and disrupt in particular Christians here and abroad.

    Their Islamic ideals to appear peaceful is being promoted here, but people in general don’t understand their book (being a redaction of sorts) and what is in it. The interesting thing is they don’t pick on Buddhists or Hindus so much, even though they do elsewhere. They specifically target Jews and Christians. Although it is a spiritual phenomena, the uninformed public whether it be media or the local citizen have not been educated to know that there is a great bias and racial discrimination in its texts. Europe is being inundated with Islamic laws being pushed just because they want it their way. They utterly hate the cross of Christ, it is an offense to them, but no one bothers them about it. One Muslim tried to remove the cross or cover it at the St John of God Hospital here in Perth. They do show their contempt for us even in public, which many years ago they did not dare to do this. They are preaching enough dislike and contempt for us these days because they are now populating our nations. They want to practice Islam here but they should also receive instruction to hear the gospel, only because there is a push to educate people about their beliefs. It should be the other way round.

    I would like the Muslims to hear us share the gospel of the news of Jesus Christ and have an open mind to receive the Word of God even if they don’t appear to appreciate the Bible. It is the last days before Christ’s return and we will be seeing more of what God’s word says about these end time events.

    I hope you don’t mind me sending the Jewish Weekly Review to you as I could not send the article separately, but that the editor has said we can pass on the weekly newspaper to others.

    God bless you in your work for the Lord.

    Hi Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

    You might be interested to know that I recall a case in London where a Muslim community objected to a large (and noisy)
    African church in their neighborhood and took action against it. My late brother-in-law told me about it seven years ago and
    he told his Christian solicitor friend to take note of it for when they built call to prayer towers. I wish I could remember more !

    Regards
    Phil

    Good initial result. Well done for persevering in the Lord. Praying that the Muslim community will back down and that the ground next to CTFM will be kept for holy development only.

    Great news that VCAT took accountability for their mistake and apologized! that is a victory! That RUAH has to pay for their error is not, and not at all fair! However, when has the work of the enemy been fair? Pastor Daniel knows that from years of experience.

    Maybe there is a ‘turning of the cheek’ in this situation and I know the character of Jesus in Pastor Daniel would agree.

    Somehow I get the impression that God is testing our attitudes again in this as with previous Court cases and that this is part of ‘Ploughing the Ground’ that RUAH’s prayers and work are doing and the ploughing returns ALL kinds of refuse!

    We need to encourage ourselves in the Lord because You All are doing a great work. God Bless RUAH.

    Hazel.

    Hi Danny,

    Congratulations on the first round of battles. I would like to see the Council, the State and the Commonwealth just make a statement/ruling that there will be no more mosques built anywhere!!!! Unfortunately, if they don’t build it on their select site in Doveton they will just go to another location and repeat the process. The process is that of an invasion of the nation.

    Great to hear that the Lord is blessing you in your ministry.

    Interesting that you should approach Islam in this way. I think you might have done better with full scale evangelism. Have noticed that Muslims are more interested in Christianity than Christians are in Islam. Many will express privately that Islam is not their religion of choice. God will defend his chosen people ( those who call on the name of Yahweh and His son Yeshua) we need emu-nah (faith).

    God Bless,

    Wikipedia on the ‘good dinkum aussie’ (is that what the leader of our Federal opposition suggested Islamics might be?) Faid Mohammad. Got the last three letters of his name correct.

    “Death Series DVDs
    In 2007, the Australian Federal Police investigated whether 16 DVDs of Mohammed’s sermons, called the Death Series, broke laws against sedition, racial vilification, and inciting violence and terrorism.[1][5] The DVDs came to public attention when they were featured in the documentary Undercover Mosque, which aired on Britain’s Channel 4; the DVDs were being sold by children in the parking lot of a Birmingham mosque.
    [edit]Other lectures
    In the documentary, he says of non-Muslims, in his ‘Signs of the Hour’ speech’, in one DVD, Mohammed said that children should be encouraged to become jihadists: “We want to have children and offer them as soldiers defending Islam… Teach them this: there is nothing more beloved to me than wanting to die as a mujahid. Put in their soft, tender hearts the zeal of jihad and a love of martyrdom.”[1] Elsewhere, he said, “Jews are pigs that will be killed at the end of the world”.[4] He also said concerning Jews, “They have got the most extreme racial pride in them. They say that every single non-Jew is a slave created to serve the Jews … Their time will come like every other evil person’s time will come.”[6]
    He has since apologized in an interview for referring to Jews as pigs, and said that his reference to jihad was misunderstood.[5]
    [edit]Call for beheading
    It became known in September 2010 that in an Internet conference, Mohammad incited Muslim followers in the Netherlands to behead the Dutch politician Geert Wilders, the reason being that those who insult the teachings of Islam must be killed.[7][8] The Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf released an excerpt of the talk.[9]”

    From: THE Australian, by: Cameron Stewart.
    “…………………….They lived in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and their family had fled the Chechen civil war for Kazakhstan and appeared to have been granted asylum in the US. Tamerlan was reported to have been killed by explosives on his body, suggesting he may have detonated a suicide vest.
    “I don’t have a single American friend, I don’t understand them,” he recently posted on his website.

    On his YouTube page he posted religious videos, including a video of Feiz Mohammad, a fundamentalist Australian Muslim preacher who rails against …. ..” End THE AUSTRALIAN excerpt.

    Australia, by opening its arms to Islam, is entering upon the obvious and predictable outcome that Australia is now linked to terrorism. Of course, by opening its arms to vice and debauchery it had already lined itself up to be a channel for this extension of inhumane conduct. Kick at marriage, kick at decency, kick out children’s moral protection, kick out women’s moral safeguards, fake and deceive by fancy dress, try to swing freedom of the individual off the floor; bring in the brothel keepers, drum out the Owner and Creator of the Establishment. Dance all night with the Devil – no-one will stop us – but the Piper always demands his fee – in full, no mercy.
