For those who are recent arrivals we’ve butted heads with Catch The Fire Ministries before.
In general they hate large swathes of the Canberra community but are so little regarded in these parts they need to bus their crazies in from the trailer parks of backwoods Victoria to fill out their protests.
Skidbladnir, once again demonstrating he needs to get out more, keeps a gimlet eye on their website and has alerted me to their Rise Up Australia story:
We praise and thank God for a wonderful weekend of Holy Spirit ministry in Canberra, as Pr Daniel ministered at three revival meetings in two different churches on Sunday the 5th and also shared the vision of Rise Up Australia Party on Sat 4th August.
At the Rise Up Australia Party meeting, Pr Daniel also the National President of RUA Party, shared the vision God gave him for Australia, and how Rise Up Australia Party will play a big role in it. As the people heard of the RUA Party slogan “Keep Australia Australian”, there was spontaneous clapping and great excitement amongst those who had come to the meeting!
As the RUA Party policies and principles were read out, people shouted and cheered with much excitment. The meeting was also attended by the NSW State President Peter Madden. He too briefly shared why RUA Party will make a difference in Australia. The people were just absolutely thrilled to hear that RUA Party will be contesting the 2013 Federal Election.
Over the weekend many people signed up and took membership with the political party. Also a RUA Party State Team was set up to lead operations in ACT. Most amazingly, almost in every single state and at the first National Executive meeting, 12 members formed the executive. This was unplanned and very much to the surprise of those present. It has happened right across the country! We give thanks to the Lord that 12 is the number for ‘God’s Government’ in the Word of God. We believe that this is really supernatural as it is God’s governmental authority!
