Some Christians in Australia are saying the deaths of now nearly 200 people (and possibly more) in the Victorian bushfires was an act of god in retaliation for the state’s abortion laws.
The Victorian Parliament legalized abortion last year, although like all parts of Australia, abortion has been practiced for years, state funded, even where it was technically illegal.
According to Catch the Fire Ministries (CTFM), a part of the Pentecostal Assemblies of God group, leader Pastor Danny Nalliah said he was not surprised by the bush fires due to a dream he had last October relating to consequences of the abortion laws passed in Victoria.
From the release:
He said these bushfires have come as a result of the incendiary abortion laws which decimate life in the womb.
Yesterday (Monday 9th February 2009), the front page of the Herald Sun newspaper reported “The Darkest hour for Victoria”.
A few months ago the news media should have reported “The darkest hour for the unborn” but unfortunately the “Decriminalization of Abortion bill” went through parliament and was passed, thus making many people call Victoria “the baby killing state of Australia”, Mr Nalliah said.
He said on November 7th last year we had sent out an email to our national network and a posting on our website carried an urgent post titled, ‘STOP PRESS. URGENT PRAYER NEEDED REGARDING AUSTRALIA, ESPECIALLY THE STATE OF VICTORIA’ following a dream he had on the 21st of October 2008, which he shared with his team on 22nd October.
Following is an excerpt from the dream which was published in the article:
“In my dream I saw fire everywhere with flames burning very high and uncontrollably. With this I woke up from my dream with the interpretation as the following words came to me in a flash from the Spirit of God. That His conditional protection has been removed from the nation of Australia, in particular Victoria, for approving the slaughter of innocent children in the womb.”
Nalliah was the center of controversy in Australia when he was prosecuted in 2004 under Victoria’s religious vilification laws for attacking Muslims. He is also a previous Senate Candidate for the Family First Party, running second on the ticket in 2004.
