Famous Last Words

There is a rumour going around Fiji at present that tomorrow at 2.30 PM a great disaster will strike.  It apparently started when some nutcase pastor in Nadi reported a vision in which god spoke to him and told him there would be a great earthquake and tsunami, and water would fall from the moon.   I see there is still a web page up here…

It was also going round as an email
apparently, but the Government stepped in and, I am told, arrested some of the
people who were spreading it.  Good on them.   I can find no reference to any arrests, however I did find this: 
Bainimarama’s response.  Good one. Of course he would see
it as political.  If only he had maintained a purely rational stance:


What surprises me is the number of seemingly intelligent people who seem to be taking this bullshit at least half seriously, and in particular who nervously ask me what I think about it? 

Of course I tell them in no uncertain terms my opinion.  Bullshit is the politest way to express it. 

Check in tomorrow for a post-disaster sitrep!

Warning!!!

Dear friends. Greetings in wonderful name of
Jesus. Please read on, be calm cool and collected. DO NOT PANIC.
The purpose of this letter is to move you to preparation. Those who are
prepared will have confidence when the coming events happen.

You have about 3 months, 15 days from this date
(08/3/10) to prepare yourself and your family especially for those who
live in Fiji.

I am Rev.Laione Lutumaimuri Nacevamaca

Superintendent of Kuriako’s Church of God in Christ Fiji.An Author,
missionary Bible school administrator and Lecturer. Have been in the
Christian ministry since 1975.I function in the ministry office of

Seminary graduate with DIp.Th Bre, MABS Degrees married with 4 children.

The brief of biodata above is to
help you know that I am well balanced as a person and as a Christian
brother. In obedience to the Lord God Almighty, I am releasing with love
and compassion, this message to you for the first time in writing
.

DISASTER

Surely the Lord God does nothing unless
he reveals his secrets to his servants the prophets.(Amos 3:7)…Toward
the end of last year (AD2009), the Nadi Weather Office predicted 11
tropical cyclones during 2009-2010 Cyclone season which will end in
April 2010.This prediction moved me to predict Fiji. I received an
answer from the Lord God saying

"The predicted cyclone will come, but a
more devastation disaster will hit Fiji in June, 2010.Earthquakes and
waves will hit the entire land from all directions. After the waves,
strong winds and rain will follow."

I talked to the Lord God some more,
asking for more details for June 2010 disaster. On the 23rd day of
November, 2009 the word of the Lord came to me saying…

"This time in June 2010, the disaster
will hit Fiji. It will be chaotic, catastrophe that Fiji has never
experienced before."

Immediately I looked at my cell phone
clock, it was exactly 2:30pm.My friend the coming disaster will hit our
island nation, Fiji on the 23rd day of June, 2010 at 2:30pm:

23rd June, 2010 at 2:30pm

This is the date and time. Mark to your
calendar. Add it to your prayer lists. Get right with the Lord
God!!Prepare yourself for it. Be familiar with the disaster DISMAC
advices, and follow them.

I do not know how long the hit will be,
but we all know that the aftermath will be longer. Prepare for food,
water, etc.Learn from the little ants and prepare in the summer for the
winter.

The Holy Bible says in Amos 3:7

Surely the Lord God does nothing unless
he reveals his secrets to his servants the prophesy".

The Lord God has revealed this and it
is my responsibilities to warn you. I have been releasing this message
orally, until this one in writing for the first time.

The Confirmation

"So that every matter may be
established by the testimony of two or three witnesses"

(Matt 18:16 NIV)

Early February 2010, an American based
prophet released a prophesy from the Lord through his TBN television
program. Part of his prophesies are as follows:

"a disaster will hit the South Pacific
in June 2010 especially the islands if Fiji.An earthquakes will begin in
the Western Coast of America, will cut across the Pacific Ocean and hit
Fiji whose surrounding reefs will be peeled off of their foundations,
casts into the air before they hit the water again. The hit of the sun
will cause the moon to spill things like water into the ocean. Some of
which will hit Fiji."

Compare this prophecy with mine and you
will understand why Fiji will get hit from every direction. This
prophet until that prophecy has never heard of Fiji or been to Fiji. His
prophecy confirms the message given to me in Fiji, on November, 2009.I
have never met this American prophet or known to him. Again
the Holy Bible says in Matt.18:16,

"So that every matter may be
established by the testimony of two or

three witnesses".

The message has been established by the
mouth of two prophets. Take heed therefore my friend!! As I write this
part of the message, the Anointing from the Lord, is heavy on me. Tears
begin to fill my eyes. The word of the Lord God is assuring me saying,

"Son it will happen as I told you. Tell
my people to prepare themselves".

I am always touched by the pains and
the losses of the disaster victims. The Lord God Almighty also, cares
for you and has revealed this; months before it happens to give you time
to prepare yourself and your family. Please I beg you in Jesus name to
take heed and move to prepare yourself.

Thank you dear friend for taking steps
to prepare yourself and your family; I am truly honored to remain.

Your Sincerely In Christ,

Habakkuk 2:3-4

For the revelation awaits an appointed
time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it will
linger, wait for it, it will certainly come and will not delay…but the
righteous shall live by faith.

Here is what Prime
Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama has to say about it. Of course he would see it as political.  If only he had maintained a purely rational stance. Even so, it is good to see.

Fiji PM attacks false prophecies

Friday, June 18, 2010

Taken from / By: FBC News

 Prime
Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama has accused people with political
agendas of trying to cause instability by spreading so called
prophesies of an impending disaster.

Bainimarama says
these figures are trying to scare tourism operators and investors with
their ridiculous rumours.

A prophesy by a Reverend in Nadi of a looming earthquake and
tsunami on Wednesday 23rd June has been generating much talk recently.

However
Bainimarama says no one should be bothered.


"I
think its just about a group of people trying to bring about
instability through this prophecy. Unfortunately I’ve heard some real
high profile figures are spreading these stories. I don’t know what
they are going to gain out of it, but I guess some high profile figures
from the SDL office and what they want to do is to create some
instability in our tourism industry especially investors. I really
don’t see why anyone should be bothered by this".

One of
the people spreading the word on the impending disaster is FRU Board
Chairman Bill Gavoka, a known supporter of the SDL party.

Gavoka
sent an email this week to tourism operators urging them to take the
prophesy seriously.

He wrote that this is not a prophesy made by
cult leaders, but by a mature and balanced pastor.

Gavoka is asking people to pray and prepare before the disaster strikes
at 2.30 pm on Wednesday next week.

He told FBC News he stands by his belief.


"It
has
been prophesied by one of our pastors in one of the Christian
denominations that there will be an earthquake on Wednesday the 23rd
somewhere in the pacific or somewhere in the Americas and that Fiji
will feel the brunt of activities in the sea. Specifically huge waves,
a tsunami. The prophecy is commanding a lot of dialogue in the
Christian community across the country and my background was tourism, I
spent 30 years in the industry and I know that they’re very vulnerable
and I remember what happened in Thailand in 2004 with the Asian tsunami
and I thought I would be doing my duty to alert them to this and
prepare themselves for something real. According to the prophecy it
will be around 2.30 in the afternoon.”

However Bainimarama
says he is only worried about the mental stability of those spreading
the so called prophesy.

"I think they talking about
some disaster or phenomenon. Something like an earthquake or tsunami.
How they can detect that from here, I really don’t know because even
earthquakes cannot be detected until it strikes, so I really don’t know
where they are getting the credibility of the story from and I really
am worried about their state of mind.”

About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
