Fires

Faith and flaming arrows

As a wall of fire reported to be 60 feet high and moving at 90 kilometres an hour bore down from the Mallacoota wharf, where thousands of people huddled for safety, David Jeffery used his faith.  Literally.

Jeffery, the owner of the Wave Oasis B&B in Mallacoota, and two older “prayer warriors” (along with many others around the nation) were praying.

“I prayed, ‘Lord if you don’t push this [fire] back now, we need [wind] from the east.’ As soon as I said that, it started blowing from the east a little bit. Then I got louder and [the wind] got stronger. Then I got louder again and it got stronger again …

“I felt it change. I noticed that the bolder I got, the stronger [the wind got]. I was yelling, ‘In Jesus’ name, thank you Lord for rescuing these souls. Push it back Lord, rescue us!’

“It was desperation personified. I did not care who heard me. I knew then that God was then doing what I was asking. Because if he didn’t answer then, we were dead.”

Noting that no easterly was forecast, Jeffery continues: “What God did was push [the fire] back from the east, which was impossible but he did it. He did that for five minutes, which broke [the fire front] enough to stop it from getting to where we were.”

Jeffrey’s faith acted as a shield for himself and the other people trapped on the beach.

There’s a verse about faith being a shield: “In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.” Ephesians 6:16

This verse is from a passage in Ephesians that tells believers who they’re fighting and what to do.  I’ll put the passage at the end of this post.

This photo shows what the struggle is against.

“A dairy farmer who spent 13 hours defending his property from a fire that spat out 100m large fireballs has pleaded with the PM to not let any more people die.”

“It hit us like four or five times, the chopper pilots are heroes, they saved it (the property) … I’m very glad people did not get killed here. We’ve got a photo a friend took and I’m not into hooky pooky stuff but there was a big devil face in it.”

“We have a belief there’s political zeitgeist behind this,” said former Australian leader Barnaby Joyce, citing the ways the forests had been neglected.

Zeitgeist means “the spirit of the age.”  I’ll write more about the spirit of the age in a separate post.  Our struggle is not against people.  It’s against the rulers, the authorities, the powers of this dark world and the spiritual forces of evil.

Just laws based on the ten commandments act as a protective hedge around a country.  When these laws are changed in favour of the sustainable goals of Agenda 2030, it will leave the country open to attack.  I believe we’ll see an increase in open spiritual warfare.  A Christian’s job is not to be a social justice warrior but to stand in the gap for their land and pray.

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.  Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Ephesians 6:10-12

The Green Tape – Goal 15 of UN Agenda 2030

As the Sunday afternoon sky in New Zealand went an unprecedented orange from Australia’s bush fires, eventually draining into an early sepia toned twilight, I was left dumbfounded. Australia has experienced bush fires before and should know how to deal with them.  Why on God’s green earth did the Australian state and federal governments close fire trails, remove dams and ignore calls to thin out trees and remove undergrowth?

There are news reports like this one from The Sydney Morning Herald, Green ideas must take blame for deaths :Fire trails have been blocked up to turn the land back to its natural state and volunteer firefighters prevented by National Parks and Wildlife Service employees from bulldozing control lines because of damage to vegetation.

“… Instances like that are just too numerous to mention. Governments … have been in too much of a rush to appease green idealism … This thing about locking up forests is just not working.”

“I believe there is an agenda..” an Australian wrote in the comments section of an article from the Volunteer Fire Fighters Association where a firefighter is shown wrapped in green tape.

UN SDG 15
UN Agenda 2030, goal 15

Yes there is an agenda – the green tape of the Sustainable Development Goals for Agenda 2030 – specifically SDG Goal #15.

In the name of this ideological goal, the UN has demanded that the undergrowth be left in the forests to “reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”

What is this sustainable development goal that is causing such poor management of national parks and state forests?

The sustainable goals of Agenda 2030

In 2015, Agenda 21morphed into UN Agenda 2030 which the UN is now openly promoting.  It has 17 high-minded, altruistic and idealistic goals it’s happy to tell the world about, like “ending poverty.”

These goals come with 169 Sustainable Development Goals you are not being told about.  You won’t find them very easily, I had to do some digging, but here’s the link.

Click on goal 15.  One of the 169 goals is SDG 15.2.1, “Sustainable Forest Management” which involves “biomass.”

Generally speaking, biomass includes the stem, stump, branches, bark, seeds and foliage.  It’s more important to the UN Climate Change lobby to keep biomass (the undergrowth) in the name of “reducing greenhouse gas emissions.”  That’s why firefighters and local authorities have been prevented from managing their own forests.

The United Nations doesn’t care that the undergrowth is highly combustible leading to unstoppable fires.  According to them biomass is good as it absorbs carbon dioxide!

Note: carbon dioxide, or CO2 is a trace gas which makes up just 0.04% of the atmosphere.  Yet it is being portrayed by the UN as a harmful greenhouse gas.

This is how the world’s forests are being “conserved” in the name of sustainable development and climate change.

It’s not ‘climate change’ threatening Australia – it’s the belief in climate change.


Biomass and “sustainable” forest management

Here’s the link on the FAO Food and Agriculture page under ‘Key results’ of target 15.1. Quote: “Furthermore, stopping deforestation contributes to reducing of impacts of climate change as forests absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it as biomass.”  

And here’s Australia’s report card from the UN for SDG 15.2.1: “Sustainable Forest Management.”  It seems the Australian government is after a big UN tick for their biomass targets.  Read it and weep.

If you are wondering who the FAO are, the Food and Agriculture Organisation is headquartered in Rome.   It seems sovereign management of the nations’ land is being quietly transferred to the United Nations, under something called “FAO Custodianship.”  This link is for Latin America and the Caribbean.

Clearly the land confiscation and United Nations ideological approach to forest management is a disaster in the making, and not just one confined to Australia given the rise of uncontrollable fires.  This is criminal.

This is what top-down rule by bureaucrats from an UNelected and UNaccountable world government looks like.

I hope I’ve shown you enough to see where this unelected, rampaging, land grabbing, lying, murdering socialist beast is taking us.  Where’s it going?  How much suffering has it already caused?

My recommendation is to read up on the 169 UN Sustainable Development Goals and see which ones are being enacted in your country.


A farmer’s plea to the Australian government:

Craig Calvert“A dairy farmer who spent 13 hours defending his property from a fire that spat out 100m large fireballs has pleaded with the PM to not let any more people die.”

“Shaking and fighting back tears Mr Calvert said that government incompetence had led to the disaster fire season.

“People need help. Australia is scared. To Mr (Morrison), please throw your gloves on, come on down here and see me,” he said.

“Morris (Morrison) step up and get behind us, don’t let anymore people die in the future. You’re the man of the hour, everyone will fall behind you.”

“I’ve got an extensive network who can help with knowledge of the bush and how the environment actually runs. It doesn’t run on paperwork.”

Do you think he’ll be listened to?


The Excuses

And now, here come the “Climate Change” excuses – the fire season is longer, because of “global warming” – so they weren’t able to do backburns.

While many people use the terms interchangeably, hazard reduction is done ahead of bushfire season to reduce the intensity of fires if they do happen, while backburning is done as a last resort to stop a fire that’s already burning.

Mechanical clearing like slashing undergrowth, or even reducing the ground fuel by hand wasn’t done because the local fire authorities are having difficulties getting into national parks to do hazard reduction.

As for backburns, former leader Barnaby Joyce pointed out it’s not like there’s no period to get them done – they could do it in the middle of winter or periods after rain. When they do have occasions to do it, they are constrained by bureaucracy – green tape. Conservation decisions are made by bureaucrats who don’t live in the area.

Former CSIRO scientist David Packham said the same thing in an interview with Sky News Australia.

“The bushfires are now catastrophic.”  Les Crowe, National Chief Loss Adjuster to the Insurance Council of Australia wrote about a misconception propagated by the media : “This the first time such fires have been rated as catastrophic. True, but not because they were rated any worse than many previous fires. In 2009, following the bush-fire inquiry, the defined categories of fire were renamed. Catastrophic was introduced as the most severe warning. So this description was never intended to make people think they were the worst fires ever. I have heard many media reports entrench this mistake.”

You’ll find his remarks in the comments section of this link: ‘Climate change doesn’t cause fires’ : “You can’t blame climate change when you’ve restricted access to millions of hectares of densely thickened eucalypt forests and wonder why they go up in smoke.

You can’t blame climate change when you haven’t back burned this millennium.

You can’t blame climate change when there are no fire breaks or cool buffer zones installed around towns, houses and critical infrastructure.”


Finally, what’s this about the Rural Fire Brigades struggling for money?

That's full fucked

Apostate churches want action on ‘climate change’ while Australia burns

Australia has suffered a devastating early bush fire season with fires across several states burning through hundreds of thousands of hectares.  New South Wales has been the most severely hit, with more than 1.65m hectares razed, an area significantly larger than suburban Sydney.

AustraliaMap-750x434

Of course the fires have been blamed on climate change.  Are the Australian fires unprecedented?  History would say otherwise.  Australia has always had devastating bush fires.

Hear the voice of a volunteer fire fighter:

“It is high time bureaucrats and politicians stopped blaming climate change for a bushfire crisis that is very much of their own making and is putting lives at risk.”

On Christmas Eve, former Australian leader Barnaby Joyce posted a word about the drought and Australian Bushfires on Twitter – which the media called ‘bizarre,’ but I agree with him.

“You don’t need to convince me the climate’s not changing – the climate’s always changing.  My problem’s always been how a new tax is going to change it back!”

He mentioned a higher authority at work, beyond our comprehension.  “Unless we understand that’s got to be respected, then we’re just fools – we’re going to get nailed.” 

I wondered what the Australian Churches are saying about that.  It appears they’ve used their Christmas messages to preach about “climate change,” and put pressure on their prime minister to “take action.”   Even the media have called that disgusting.

They’re no longer preaching about sin and morality!

There’s a Bible proverb that says “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.  Proverbs 14:34

Laws based on the ten commandments protect a nation spiritually.  Have there been any laws made in Australia recently that might remove God’s hand of protection from the land?  In 2017 Australia changed the marriage covenant by bringing in same-sex marriage and now the abortion laws have been decriminalised.  New South Wales was the last state to do it, changing it’s abortion law on September 26th, 2019.   The bush fires broke out soon after in early October.

Is there a link between sin and disaster?  I’m not hearing it from the churches in Australia.

New Zealand is next to decriminalise it’s abortion law in line with the demands of the United Nations SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals.)  Will it be NZ’s turn to “get nailed?” God doesn’t bring disaster or delight in it, the Bible states what’s needed to heal the land in 2 Chronicles 7:13-14.

It’s up to you, Australian believers to stand in the gap for your land.  Prayer changes things.  I know you’re out there and we’re with you.
