Tumbleweed, Chaff and Psalm 83 by Ps Norman Miller, Tabernacle of David Cairns 27.4.24


By Barbara Miller

While praying for Australia before our church service on Saturday 27/4/24, I remembered a word the Lord had given me for an Australia Day prayer conference we held in Canberra before Covid.  In it, I had a vision of a rudder that could turn around the ship of our nation back to Judeo-Christian values. A rudder is small but it can turn a big ship around. So I asked the Lord, what is the rudder we need now to turn our nation around and I was surprised to be guided in prayer that the rudder is the alleged stabbing of the Assyrian Bishop recently by a boy charged with terrorism who had shouted allahu akbar as he did it with the bishop forgiving him

On reflection, two changes occurred. One was that police and ASIO who had not acted when Jews were assaulted by Muslims, when Islamic hate preachers preached death to Jews and street protestors shouted kill the Jews etc, acted quickly this time.  They found a terror network of teenagers, arresting them on the eve of Anzac Day to avert a terror attack. This may have been because a Christian Arab was attacked rather than a Jew and/or the crowds that would be out for Anzac Day. With about 2,000 rioters gathering outside the church after the livestreamed alleged stabbing, police were injured and police cars damaged because police protected the perpetrator. They were likely concerned re Arab on Arab violence. 

Secondly this bishop, Mar Mari Emmanuel, already reportedly had 120,000 followers before the alleged attempted murder but now his profile is greatly increased and he is someone who is not frightened to stand up for biblical values and challenge Islam. He has visited Gaza in the past and may be critical of Israel. However, I will be praying the Lord uses him to speak fearlessly for Judeo-Christian values.

In my prayer, I also saw a stone being dropped in a pool and the ripples going out from it and felt it was healing waves so I pray that the Lord will heal our nation from the division and lack of social cohesion that has beset it and bring revival.

However, we have another development this morning in that messages on signal indicate that, a few days after the alleged stabbing of the bishop, the teens said that their next target would be Jews. This has obviously alarmed the Jewish community along with anti-Israel camps being set up at Sydney and Melbourne universities and 5-year-olds being taught by their teacher to chant “intifada” and “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free”, a genocidal call to wipe Israel and Jewish people off the map. The call to prayer is urgent so that God would turn our nation around to be a sheep nation not a goat nation (Matt 25).

“While Surafend is a little-known part of our ANZAC history, I went there twice in 2010 and 2017, met locals and researched the history,” said author, historian and pastor Barbara Miller. “For the pro-Palestinian lobby of Australian teachers to denigrate the ANZAC legacy by rewriting it emphasizing Surafend, tying it erroneously to the Israel-Gaza war and belittling the sacrifice of so many Australian soldiers and their families on the eve of ANZAC Day is disgusting.”

Co-founder of the Centre for International Reconciliation and Peace with her husband Pastor Norman Miller, Ms Miller said, “The Victorian Teachers and School Staff for Palestine (TSSP) have produced their own material with which to indoctrinate our children with their anti-Israel, anti-Australian agenda. They should at least get their facts right.

“Their 40-page booklet titled Teaching for Palestine: Challenging Anzac Day will ignore teaching resources from the Australian War Memorial though it is aligned with the national curriculum. The teachers are reportedly concerned with imperialistic and militaristic views.

“What happened at Surafend? The war was over and the ANZACs were camped near the Bedouin village of Surfend on 10 December 1918. The troops were tired of the British protecting the Arabs who had a long record of thieving and other harassment. SEE MORE
