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.
