Well, I believe with all my heart believe … that the Prime Minister will be re-elected to government. And also that the Federal Treasurer would be handed over the leadership.

Now this was something I knew because God spoke to me and told me very clearly a few days prior to the meeting with John Howard and Peter Costello – as to what was going to be the future of this country in the next election.
And that we should pray for righteous leaders to lead this country because the word of God says righteousness exalts a nation.
I also note that Catch The Fire also has an article, dated November 20, 2007 (4 days before the Federalelection in which the Howard government was slaughtered by Labor)on its website, titled Kenneth Copeland a Leading Prophetic Voice in the World Predicts PM John Howards Re-Election, which states:
God’s man in Australia [referring to John Howard] stood up and publicly declared Australia a Christian nation!
[Allegedly quoting Mr Howard] “If you want to come here and join us in our Christian faith you are welcome here but don’t think you can come in here and try and force some other religion here on us and don’t think you are going to tell us how to believe God and who we are going to worship.”
He publicly did that, now this is no time for that man to be defeated. Well he’s not going to be. Amen. He is Lord to the glory of God the Father. He is Lord to the glory of God the Father. He is Lord over Australia! It has been announced! Amen.
I’m not aware of Mr Howard ever having made such a statement.
Regarding the above quote, I note thatCatch The Fire blogger,Office 2, is supposed to be quoting Col Stringer who in turn is supposed to be quoting Kenneth Copeland who in turn is supposed to be quoting John Howard.
This is pretty messystuff, to put it mildly.
Danny Nalliah has doneoutstanding and heroicwork in defending free speech. His defence of free speech has notrelied onthe sorts ofdubious (again, that’s putting it mildly) “prophetic insights” exemplified above.
It can be time-consuming and tedious work separating the good from the bad from the ridiculous when understanding or judging an individual.
It’s wrong to de-legitimise the good work of an individual by clumping it together with his flawed work.
Equally, it’s wrong to ignore or gloss over the mistakes or sins of an individual because we admire him.
The truth is the Whole Truth.
