Seasons Greetings Card from Dandenong CouncilDear friends and family in Christ,Seasons Greetings from Dandenong Council

1) You may click on the photos to view the card that is going out from the Dandenong Council this Christmas.

We received this ‘Season’s Greetings’ card (not ‘Merry Christmas’) from someone within the Dandenong Council.

Please notice that this card does not have ‘CHRISTMAS’ written anywhere on it.  It was produced this Christmas and states ‘Happy festive season’ from the Mayor and the Councillors.

Please keep praying and speaking out for ‘Merry Christmas’ to be restored in Dandenong and across all of Australia despite of all political correctness, multiculturalism and interfaith.

2) Pr Daniel will be ministering God’s prophetic Word and praying for people this Sunday 1st December at the 9.30am & 6:30pm worship services at CTFM at 23 Melverton Dr in Hallam, Melbourne.

Please note that the morning service will be live webcast at www.catchthefire.com.au beginning at 10am (AEST).

3) Please pray for Pr Daniel (& team) who will be ministering God’s prophetic Word to thousands of people at Christmas Evangelistic Miracle Healing Crusades and Holy Spirit Revival Meetings in Indonesia from 5th – 9th Dec.

    The current issue of The City reinforces what many people believe, and that is that Councillors are irrelevant and local government should be run by administrators. Apart from the contact list of Councillors on page 4, the obligatory Mayor’s Message on page 2, and a pleasant piece on the Mayor ( a captain without a team?), there is not one photo, not one, of any Councillor doing anything, not one story of anything a Councillor may have been involved in, in fact apart from the Mayor and the councillor contact list, not one, NOT ONE, Councillor is mentioned by name anywhere in the 24 pages of The City. Local papers are dying a slow death and little coverage is given to Council, but that may not matter because the circulation of both the local papers has plummeted (as Councillors we have even stopped getting copies of the Journal). However, if the local press is not getting the message across of what the elected members are doing and we abysmally fail to make known in our own publication what we do, then we only have ourselves to blame for the community perception that we do nothing. Compare Glen Eira’s paper, and Kingston “Your City” and you will see we are running a distant last in communicating what we do. Not even a photo of all Councillors taken at the Mayoral induction wishing the residents a Merry Christmas in the City, just a note at the bottom of page 6 under Season’s Greetings(welcome to Summer?) wishing all residents a safe and fun-filled festive season(is this festive season the Boxing Day cricket?). No picture of Father Christmas, no picture of a Christmas tree, not even any representation of what Christmas is about. Lord help us.

    I am amazed at the Dandenong City Council. If he is Muslim and he stays in Australia, he should do what the Australians do, not what he does. If he does not like it, he should go back to his own country. This is a Christian country, not a muslim country. They like to live in Australia, but then do not bring your culture here. I am against it and would like to bring this to the attention of the Dandenong Council. Hayacynth

    Dear Danny & Staff

    As a Christian and a Volunteer office worker, I send a Christian card with a Christian message and picture depicting the true message of Christmas.to every person, Organisation and Business we deal with.

    As a Christian Organisation you need to send a Christian Card from you to the Dandenong Council – they may not want it but at least you are emphasizing your stand as a Christian to those who work there. The Secretary may be the one who opens the mail and receives a blessing, most Business display their cards on a notice board for everyone to see.

    God bless you this Christmas

    Yours sincerely

    Rosemary

    what is wrong with the people of Dandenong?
    are they going to let these fellows dictate to them and take away their heritage?
    They should be banging loudly on the doors of that Council and MORE and get out into the streets !
    We are amazed at the lack of moral fortitude in that place !

    I am a born again christian, I had this vision on Easter of 2007, I was flying on a plane (American Airlines) on my way to LAX airport from Miami, it was around twilight, when the sun is about to set on the horizon.

    I was standing on one aisle searching for a restroom, then it happened, I saw the airplane vanish in front of my eyes and I could see (in front of me) clouds on top of the Texan shoreline (on the background) and hundreds of people dressed in white robes on the clouds.

    I could notice that God had turned silent the plane not a sound was heard, for over a minute I was watching in awe the vision till the sun went down and just then my vision ended, it was so real that I thought I could fall down to the Gulf of Mexico.

    It was the shock of my life, I said to myself, this is it! it has come and I said my prayers expecting to be in the presence of Jesus, and or the end of my life, I also noticed just in front of me a short distance away one person in white robes and behind her another four also in white robes, (I couldn’t see their faces) but they weren’t standing on the clouds as the other ones on the horizon.
    It turned out that the closest one was my late mother (she went with our Lord in 2010) and there are the other four still to go with Jesus, (I had a dream on those other four members of my family). When that happens I believe the Rapture will be very close.

    God bless,

    Italo

    I very strongly object to the word Christmas being removed from the greetings in Dandenong. Surely as Christians we should be seen to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. It should not be left to other religions to make such a decision. It does not worry me who other people worship, but we are a Christian nation and as such we should keep CHRIST at Christmas.

    Dear Mr. Daniel Nalliah,

    Thank you for your lovely correspondence encouraging us to put Christ back into Christmas.I definitely agree with every word you have stated in your media release on 21 Nov 2013 titled “Is the Muslim Mayor the cause of the death of Christmas greetings in Dandenong city?” and I too fell that political correctness has gone mad with protecting the rights of our multicultural society.

    You have rightly asked “where do we Western nations draw the line”. What i believe has been happening is that we have been so busy respecting and acknowledging other cultures that WE HAVE FORGOTTEN TO DO THE SAME FOR OUR OWN CULTURE.

    In all this multiculturalism and creating harmony amongst the Eastern and Muslim Worlds we have overshadowed our own religion, culture and do not take it an offense to continue doing so.

    I think we need to urgently start projecting activities from now until Christmas as its rightly the advent season- preparing for the coming of Jesus Christ. I would like to share one such activity i came across on facebook.

    https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10200179995287209%22%3EPost%3C%2Fa%3E+by+%3Ca+href%3D%22https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fmargy.agar%22%3EMargy+Agar%3C%2Fa%3E.%3C%2Fdiv%3E%3C%2Fdiv%3E

    Your good office could promote such projects in the form of “Christmas Caroling at the Malls in all our suburbs”.

    All we need to do is to get the local singing groups together, plan a date, seek permisiion from the malls and go ahead with it.
    Im sure this will help us to bring Christ back into Christmas and help heal a lot of our inner hurt.

    Wishing you and all at your office a very merry Christmas and a happy new year in advance.

    Kind Regards

    Aloysious

    Shalom CTFM and Blessings to Pastor Daniel; it was a blessing to be able to meet you and support the work of RUAP during a campaign meeting at COC in Bridgeman Downs, Qld during August. Thank you for all your efforts in the Federal Election.

    Hereunder an excellent teaching youtube link by David Pawson of the UK, well-known and one of today’s foremost Bible expositors, as he expounds from the book of Colossians on Sabbath, Christmas and Easter:

    Also, another good teaching link by a Messianic Jewish Believer in Yeshua- Jim Staley, on the same topic – Christmas, Easter and its meaning:

    Praying these teachings will be a blessing to readers
