The COG has long taught that God’s protecting hand has been upon the English speaking peoples of the world because of the amazing promises contained in His word. Even though they have forgotten who their ancestors are, God has not. He remains faithful and true. However, there are also promises that He will withdraw his protecting hand for disobedience, and there are signs everywhere that this is occurring.
Enter Catch the Fire Ministries. No, they are not a COG organization, but they recently stirred up more than a small share of controversy.
The Catch the Fire Ministries has tried to blame the bushfires disaster on laws decriminalising abortion in Victoria.
The Pentecostal church’s leader, Pastor Danny Nalliah, claimed he had a dream about raging fires on October 21 last year and that he woke with “a flash from the Spirit of God: that His conditional protection has been removed from the nation of Australia, in particular Victoria, for approving the slaughter of innocent children in the womb”.
~ Rick Fenely, “Pastor’s abortion dream inflames bushfire tragedy“
Just to make everything crystal clear, here is the dream he had:
Pastor Danny stated, “I saw a man firing randomly with a weapon at people on the streets and many were falling dead. I was very disturbed and was crying. Then the scene changed and I saw fire everywhere with flames burning very high and uncontrollably. With this I awoke from my dream with the interpretation as the following words came to me in a flash from the Spirit of God, ‘My wrath is about to be released upon Australia, in particular Victoria, for approving the slaughter of the innocent children in the womb. Now, call on My people to repent and pray!'”

What should we in the COG make of such shenanigans?
