Every time natural disaster strikes Danny Nalliah has an opinion on who God is punishing and for what.
Consider Jesus’ example, who, when approached in Luke 13 about attributing personal fault in tragedy and natural disaster, emphasised mortality and personal preparedness in the case of death rather than apportioning blame.
Pastor Danny seems to have more God-given insight and revelation into such situations than Jesus, which is really saying something.
In the case of Queensland’s floods apparently none other than Kevin Rudd is to blame.
Several news services have picked up on the story.
From Nalliah’s blog:

Around 8pm on Friday night the 7th of January we had a strong prompting by the Holy Spirit to repent on behalf of Australia. As we started doing so, I was reminded that every time America went against Israel, there was disaster in the land and this has been documented over the years.
Then at once I was reminded of Kevin Rudd speaking against Israel in Israel on 14th December 2010. It is very interesting that Kevin Rudd is from QLD. Is God trying to get our attention? Yes, I believe so.
Also the Lord said to us, “ I will humble Australia and bring her down on her knees. As she has taken pride in my blessing, and man has taken the glory and not given it to Me”.
Right now (12.30am – just after midnight) around 40 intercessors are crying out to the Lord and repenting on behalf of what Rudd has done against Israel. When I opened my email to write to you, I found the following email in my inbox and was amazed as to how God spoke to us about the same issue.

The post finishes by asking:

Please, Please, Please take some time to stand in the Gap for our nation Australia and repent and pray as in 2 Chronicals [sic] 7:14.

The verse, known to many says ‘if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.’
This of course begs the question about the content of 2 Chronicles 7:13 and its description of the afflicted land: ‘When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence among my people.’

Really, I’m happy for Pastor Danny to be able exercise free speech. Like lots of others I followed his case with the Victorian religious vilification laws and was pleased he got off.
So he’s able to give his opinion (which he claims is actually God’s opinion) and I’m able to say it sounds like cobblers.
And yeah, he really is one of us. I’m not unchurching him or anything like that. Every family has its interesting characters. That’s what makes reunions so much fun.
But it rains on the just and unjust alike.
Sometimes in flood proportions.

We continue to pray for those affected by these floods.

    Preaching Luke 13:1-9 this week & had planned to recall Danny Nahliah’s comments about the Victorian bushfires. Even better are his words about the QLD floods.

    Is Danny Nahliah one of us? Didn’t realise that. It’s good of him to repent on the nation’s behalf and grieve over evil, but I haven’t heard any media releases that grieve, repent over and retract his personal false prophecies and outrageous spiritual pride.

    If it is the Holy Spirit who sends Danny Nahliah those messages, he either has a bad connection or needs to clean his spiritual ears out, because the message normally doesn’t resonate with what the God of Truth has said in His Word.

    He reminds me of the sons of Sceva in Acts 19.

    Too harsh?

    1. gjware says:

      Well, he’s a product of his Christian culture, one which has devalued revelation.
      As you travel in certain circles you’ll hear echoes of Danny’s theology, but probably not so extreme.
      Problem is that these folk are in agreement with his operating principles so can only question his discretion.
      But once your theology allows for God speaking to and through you directly apart from the Bible you’ve got no real ground to question or disagree with his pronouncements.
      The trend will continue to grow among those in Nalliah’s tradition.

  2. Damien Carson says:

    As long as the Bible is believed to be the infallible Word of God, with agreement of all of its parts, then people who make “thus saith the Lord” declarations must be tested by their agreement with what is written as the Word of God & affirmed as such by the Holy Spirit bearing witness to His people for 2 millenia plus.

    I understand your point, though Gary, about this “tradition” that devalues revelation. However, under the Old Covenant people of this tradition were “removed from circulation”, and under the New Covenant the warning & penalty is even stronger.

    I can tolerate a lot of bovine manure, but when people like DN bring disgrace to the Lord Jesus and His people by saying stupid things in public forums, and then blaming Jesus for it, I find it hard to hold my peace.

    I know a bloke who has donkeys on his farm at McLaren Vale. Perhaps the Christian community could buy one for DN & send it to him in the hope that it “speaks and restrains the prophet’s madness”?!

    Hmm.. It is intereting, the connection between natural disaster’s and sin. I guess in a very real way all things that bring about such distress and sorrow, is directly related to sin. But just singling out one person’s sin and identifying it as the direct cause of ‘judgement’, is to me, ridiculous? I wonder how Victoria will be included in this man’s theory of judgement upon QLD, since they are now being affected by floods.

  4. William says:

    I am sorry, but I feel it prudent to voice another opinion. Unless you have received direct revelation from God Almighty, the All Compassionate, and our Judge I would be wary of speculative interpretations of God’s decrees.

    Before I plead the movings of my heart I want to make clear I mean no objection or offense to the service that you and the Christian fellowship you reside with have been praying. To pray for the sins for the forgiveness of others, to plead that ears will be open, and hearts moved was shown to us by Christ Him Self as the pathway to charity and truly learning of Him. What a wonderful thing to do; I am moved by the openness of your hearts to do this.

    The strain and difficulty I have is as follows. When God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah he removed the righteous or gave them the opportunity. Further, the city’s population -save those warned- were ‘wicked’ to an extent that the full disclosure of the many defiances. Similar in Noah’s time. My thought here is that God has given a text to us that allows us direction to know Him. Part of knowing God is knowing His reaction to behaviors and events (to an extent). We know that God forgives the penitent. We know that God destroys the wicked; whether at the last day of judgment after a long life or by allowing a life to be cut short (e.g., the flood – I recognize there are many examples, however, these types seem more of God’s direct hand in contrast to those that consist of what seems more indirect methods, such directing the Israelites to cleanse a land of iniquity. This distinction may not be important in regards to the end result -as God’s will is done- but is in the point I present).

    The floods and death is Queensland as a result of the recent whether are obviously small scale of physical loss in comparison to those reported in the Bible. However, as all life is precious to God, perhaps the comparison is not largely different. Children of God died. Is one of God’s children favored above others by way of privilege? Of course not; we know that as the Bible records, God is no favorer of people. Are we not all wicked in the sight of God if not for His Grace. As all sin, or any sin at all prevent us to stand God’s presence if it were not for Grace. My point is when God takes a life from this world by way of direct decree, like a flood or fire from heaven, surely the people directly affected and those that were mortally killed weighed in God’s thoughts and heart.

    Can you say before God as your witness, with certainty, that Kevin Rudd’s words and personal behaviors gave God cause to destroy mortal life. Is this your revelation or God’s given to you? Perhaps you do have this gift, yet I would still caution that some revelation is of God and some is of our own making. If Kevin Rudd has committed a crime to the land, let Caesar deal with that. If Kevin Rudd has done behaviors not in congruence with the revelation of the Bible – we cannot call that sin, only God can call that sin. Sin is unto God, not unto us. We are counselled by Christ that God judges, but are to forgive all people, for he or she that judges stands to be judged. We are to visit those in prison, give to the weary, teach to the unbelieving, and carry the light and succor filled burden of Christ. Can we truly ‘know’ the sin in others with a mote in our eye or a portion of tainted human perception directing our mind’s eye? Let God throw the stones upon the sinners, as we are not worthy to judge sin. For all we know Mr. Rudd may have a contrite heart misdirected, or be a wolf in sheep’s clothing. or be on his way to biblical ‘sainthood’ as was Saul or the good Samaritan.

    I agree that inspiration of the Holy Spirit, the whisper of peace and love, gives direction to those with ears to hear. The Holy Spirit infuses us with an appreciation and motivation in Love or God. It also speaks warning to us of how we should direct our thoughts, hearts, and behaviours; but to judge a man and place a sentence upon his head, for that is what a judgment is, is that God’s purpose for us?

    finer examination would suggest these cities and lands did have some innocent left behind to perish -save the innocent children no doubt that perished

    I agree i remember one time in attending there, an he was trying to take care of someone demon possessed, they were powerless until i heard someone truly step out in Gods Authority given to them and told the thing to get off him, I don’t know who they were, but i found this website link to something danny nalliah claimed on his website about RUA, i remember seeing his claim about it meaning victory, cant believe the deception in these times.
