Whether used by unionists, anti-muslim groups or anyone else, the Eureka flag is a flag of rebellion.
This flag was used by militant Catholics and Irish rebels in 1854 to revolt against the Victorian Government.
Australians are undergoing a siege of historical revisionism, where on every front, history is being rewritten. Every bad event is elevated to something good, and every good is made bad. This is the agenda of the left, in its fierce, anti-patriotic spirit.
The once godly and great Methodist Church in Australia has now largely become a pro-Left-wing organisation. The Roman Catholic institution is also bitterly divided between the Leftists in its midst. What’s dangerous about these Leftists is that they are like a fifth column, undermining patriotism and the Australian way. They are certainly anti- everything we believe and stand for. Name any issue, and they will take a polar opposite position to ours.
One especially dangerous trend that has been occurring is the so-called “Refugee Advocacy” movement. This is basically a Left-wing operation within our own nation to bring in as many unwanted illegal immigrants as possible. These people are constantly operating against our security services and other such authorities in trying to circumvent every lawful and proper measure in order to flood Australia with undesirable people.
The Left have hijacked words like “justice” and “compassion” to mean their anti-Biblical worldview. Apparently it is good, in their view, not only to destroy the Australian culture and way of life, but also to uphold a different, communistic-inspired program. As a Christian, I pray for these multitudes of Left-wing enemies, that they would repent of their evil ways. However, as the Bible also shows, divine judgment does come upon them. We should also support the idea of the Government’s authority to stop the Left’s encroachment. This means we should pray for good Government too, as the Scripture says,
I EXHORT therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
(1 Timothy 2:1-4).
The floor of the Parliament of Victoria has a King James Bible quote made out of tiles, “Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellers there is safety.” (Prov. 11:14). (They used the Oxford Edition, spelt “counsellors”.)
Good to see the words of the King James Bible are still around.
This is not a time for appeasement, but a time for gathering resolve. The leftist fifth column has no solution to the coming crisis.
Isaiah 59:19 So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.
