A New Cultural
Christian music today is Christianised secular

the culture from which they originated and they
have influenced the world for good or bad.

believe that Christianity is a culture unto itself
and its heartbeat is that of Christ. As such, it
has the ability to create a whole new expression of
sound and beat inspired by the Holy Spirit that
will reach the hearts of people everywhere
regardless of age, gender, culture, genre or
class." Patrick said.
An excellent musician
Patricks faith, drive, creativity,
commitment and enthusiasm has given us some
evidence of this possibility. This album is a first
for the Flame Music Ministry (fmm) and it could
well be a first in a music genre that could make a
real difference. Patrick said that, Faithful
to FMI's vision for a new-wave and original
expression of the arts, we have written and
produced these songs expressing our faith in the
Saving Grace of Jesus Christ for all peoples of all

prophecy, are created for praising, worshipping,

evangelisation is our vision to develop a new form

many years Senior Founding Director, Eddie Russell
held a vision for a totally new expression of the
Arts, especially in popular
in the English Invasion of American
Rock Music in the late 60s, Eddie understood
how new sounds, expressions and beat are rooted in
the folk music of the youth. The Beatles
radical new sound flew in the face of the musical
status quo that was dying a death at that time.
This gave young people and bands an excitement that
had not been experienced since Bee-Bop and Rock
Around the Clock. he said.
The result was a radical shift in musical
consciousness. My own band was part of that
explosion along with friends, Stevie Windwood of
the Spencer Davis Group, Deny Lane (Ex Wings), the
Moody Blues as well as a host of other bands from
Birmingham following hot on the heels of the Mersey
Beat phenomena. Eddie said.
Somehow, I knew there was
something deep in the human soul that
was seeking its origins, but it didnt
make sense until my conversion to Christ twenty
five years ago. Unfortunately I was not able to
pursue my dream at that time due to other things in
my life. But now a new generation has arisen, and
praise God, its in the Church. He
believe that Catholic musicians, bold
enough to give a sincere expression of
their faith in Jesus, can take the secular
music world by storm just as the Beatles
did, only this time, with a more lasting
effect and moral impact. I would like to
think that this fmm CD could do just
that." Eddie said.

Archbishop Hickeys message on the Three
Kingdoms from the document Dominus
Iesus clarified the
mind of the church on this controversial
challenged the trend towards inclusion
with other religions
that is prevalent in much of modern theology,
philosophy and ecumenism. Dominus Iesus said
that there were certain false philosophical
concepts permeating contemporary society that also
entered into inter-religious and ecumenical
dialogue. He said.
The Archbishop pointed out the dangers of
this trend as being even worse when it enters
religion, So much so that there are people
these days saying things like, the revelation
of Jesus isnt complete; there is more to be
discovered. Lets listen to other religions
that are not Christian and we can fill out the
revelation of Jesus and make it complete. He
said. It gets worse; they are saying the
Logos, the eternal Word, is not the same as Jesus.
So Jesus is dethroned, is no longer the Logos or
the eternal Word of God, and therefore, no longer
the Son of God. He said. The Archbishop
pointed out that the document addressed these
trends and said that they were, Very, very
Throughout his address the Archbishop
insisted that Christianity must influence a country
and its society. Otherwise our legislation
will go off track as it has already in many, many
instances in Western Australia. The complete
divorce between governing the country and
religious faith is having terrible
consequences for people. The Archbishop
Archbishop Hickeys address cleared up
much of that controversy and he encouraged
Catholics not to be depressed by the sometimes
impenetrable spiritual darkness of the
world in which they live. When I look at the
Church Im full of hope, because everywhere I
went (on recent trips) I saw bands of Christian
people coming together for some good purpose
including charismatic movements
spreading like wildfire, and others giving up
everything to serve the poor. He said.

passages of the Dry Bones and the prophecy of Joel

process that was to continue throughout the
Congress. Many people experienced a fresh
outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and others received
the Baptism of the Holy Spirit for the the first
time. This set the pace for the rest of the
Congress. "That was so powerful. I really knew the
power of God was on me when we prayed -
Incredible!", one delegate was heard to say
Sevenfold Principle in
Franks session on "Job and the
Sevenfold Principle" and "Treasures in Earthen
Vessels" was a powerful and challenging message of
hope. Frank gave clear answers to many questions
about the nature of suffering and its consequences
in abundant blessings which are accessible only
through, and holding on to our faith activated by
the Word of God.
Frank opened up the seven principles
expressed in the Book of Job in an easy to
understand manner which touched many areas in the
lives of the delegates. This gave them sound
reasons for standing firm in their faith, no matter
what the circumstances or other people might say.
By remaining faithful to Gods plan in spite
of his problems and the attitudes of those who
would convince him otherwise, Job won favour with

Steve gave some frightening statistics from

so without the fear of guilt. Steve covered
concerns for caring for our elderly family members.
Whilst we must be concerned for the youth,
and rightly so. We, including the youth, must also
show concern for the elderly. He said.
He also covered the area of the domestic
church which is our family, and challenged us to
see exactly what was influencing our homes.
Because, just like the Universal Church, that has
Jesus as its head, then Jesus must be the
head of the domestic church in the home. He

session that could have been very
controversial was Eddies session on
the Mazzaroth called, Alpha &
content of the session exposed the occult
Zodiac and its origins, tearing down the
veil of corruption that hides Gods
signs established in the heavens. The
session was a revelation of Gods
salvific plan, written clearly in the
constellations related to specific Bible
texts for all to see and understand.

challenges Job, Have you fitted a curb to the
Pleides, or loosened the bonds of Orion? Can you
bring forth the Mazzaroth in their season, or guide
the Bear with its train? Do you know the ordinances
of the heavens; can you put into effect their plan
on the earth? (Job 38: 31-32). Eddie
explained that this text is referring to Astronomy
rather than Astrology. The word Mazzaroth is
the Hebrew equivalent of the Greek word
Zodiac. Eddie said. The Hebrew word
Zodi means; The Way. Jesus, is The Way!
Satans corruption through Nimrod at the Tower
of Babel established the occult origins of the
Zodiac which we know today. Eddie said.
This corruption covers what God had
originally established in the heavens to shows
forth His Glory. (Psalm 19:1-7)
Basing some research on the findings of
Chuck Mezzler, Eddie traced the original Hebrew,
Arabic and Latin names, referring to ancient
Caldaic, Egyptian, Chinese and Persian star charts,
to those names that are a specific correlation in
the Bible. It showed how the constellations read as
a plan of salvation that can be followed throughout
Holy Scripture, giving a celestial witness to
Jesus, the sun of justice. (Malachi
Virgo for example reveals that the Hebrew
name for the Latin word Virgo, is Bahulah found in
Isa 7:14. It refers specifically to "The" Virgin,
not "a" virgin, who will bear a son. Explaining the
lesser and brighter magnitudes, Eddie showed that
the brightest stars to the lesser, translated from
the Hebrew names revealed, The Seed, The Branch and
The Desire of Nations (Hag 2:7).
Also included in Virgo is the constellation
of Centaurus which reveals the concept of two
natures (God & Man). The Arabic and Caldaic
name means, The Despised One, (Isa 53:3). "It is
interesting to note that there is another
constellation in Virgo that cannot be seen from the
northern hemisphere, that constellation is called,
"The Southern Cross". Eddie said.
Because Astrology corrupts what God had
established by the signs in the heavens, the use of
Astrological charts and predictions are mortally
sinful. Astrology was a capital crime for
Israel, the practice of which is condemned in
Deuteronomy and other places in Scripture.
Astrology is the occult use of Astronomy.
Taking each sign of the Zodiac in sequence,
Eddie established the correlation of the Hebrew
words in Scripture. This session tore down that
veil of Satanic corruption that began at Babel and
restored Jesus as the Alpha and the Omega. He also
explained the ensigns of the 12 tribes of Israel
and the symbols of the four Gospels. (Rom1:18-23,
Not only was this subject a
power-packed-revelation, but the whole Congress
touched on major areas of where restoration is
needed and offered clear solutions. God especially
blessed the participants in a mighty way during
the, Jesus: Lord of the Overflow Rally. Eddie
preached on the texts, Ezekiel 47. Revelations
21:5-8 and Revelations 22:1-5. The anointing was so
strong that people were receiving healing and
conversion as Eddie ministered in prayer for the
overflow of the River of Life.

Charismatic Renewal said afterwards.

addresses Rural Summit:
Convened by the
Perenjori Shire Council and sponsored by the
Minister for Agriculture, Hon. Kim Chance MLC, the
National Civic Council, Elders, Midwest Development
Corporation and Agriculture W.A, Eddie was invited
to be part of a panel of experts to address the
plight of Australian farmers in todays
troubled rural economy.
President, Mr. Brian Baxter invited Eddie
due to FMIs positive influence on
the Shire over the past two years to give
a spiritual input to the
summit which was convened on April 6th to
deal with, and find solutions to, the
negative effects of deregulation and
globalism effecting the rural sector of
Australia as well as restructuring and
implementing better farming methods.
Not being a religious event, Eddies
subject needed a certain wisdom so as not to
alienate non-Christian delegates and others from
non-Catholic churches or other religions without
compromising the Gospel message. God answered that
prayer and the effect of Eddies session
influenced the other speakers and the whole summit.
That message was exactly what we needed.
Ive never heard religion put that way before.
It wasnt what I expected. It was very
practical and easy to understand. Excellent!.
A non-Christian farmer said afterwards.
Eddie returns to the Pavilion after an interview
with ABC Radio.
A lack of vision brings
Eddie pointed out that the problem in society
today, especially with the young, is a lack of
vision. The Bible says that without a vision,
My people perish. It also says that, if My people
would humble themselves and pray, I would hear from
them and heal their land. Eddie said.
The Christian word for vision is Hope. Hope
means to have your mind filled with a confident
expectation of everything that is good. Eddie
said. "Hope is vision for the future. It gives us
something to look forward to and therefore
something to live for. He told them.
Because young people and many here today have
no vision, they are suffering hopelessness. Lack of
vision causes depression. As a result many give up
and commit suicide. Eddie said.
Using topics from the Set My People On Fire
seminars, Eddie spoke about the laws of faith, hope
and vision. We all have faith. We were born
with it. It just depends on what you put your faith
in that determines what comes out. He said.
Some people put their faith in politics, some
in money and economics, others in people. As for
me, I put my faith in Jesus Christ and what his
Word has to say. He said.
from the floor addressed serious concerns relating
to the future of the Rural Economy. The concern
over Globalism was predominant at the summit.
Gannon facilitates a question time during the
was facilitated by Mr. Gerry Gannon who did an
excellent and very professional job which made the
whole presentation a pleasure in spite of the
sometimes heavy duty information that was being
to every word, Eddie gave them practical and
humorous examples of how faith had already worked
in their lives since childhood. And how, because of
a simple promise (a Christmas present)
their days were filled with hope until the gift
arrived. This is how faith works. It believes
a promise. And that promise brings hope. That hope
gives life and something to live for. He
Explaining other ways in which a vision
could be formed for their personal, political and
corporate lives, and how goals can be implemented
from a vision, he told them that the mountains
blocking the way are only problems if we fail to
face them. Often, our problems are simply
solutions begging to be found. We can spend our
lives looking down sewers; theyre all there.
Or, we can raise our vision and look at the sky and
smell the fresh air. The choice is always
ours. He said.
All too often we cannot see the wood for the
trees and get bogged down with the problem. This
causes us to loose the big picture and we loose our
way. The only way out is to come in from another
angle. We need to look at the forest from a
distance and raise our vision, then we will see a
way through the trees. Eddie explained how God has
designed the brain to work naturally by filtering
out unwanted information from the conscious mind.
Whenever we take a serious interest in
something, all the information relating to it comes
to us automatically.
This happened when you bought your car. It
wasnt until you were driving it for the first
time that suddenly there were cars exactly the same
colour and model all over the place. They were
there all the time. Eddie said. But,
you had not noticed them until that picture was
clearly formed in your mind. Once it was, your
brain let in all the information about that car to
your conscious mind, and that was for free and
without hard work. This is how vision works.
Without it, we are lacking. He said.
Giving a practical demonstration of how
(even) their own words paint pictures in the mind
for good or bad, the people began to
see that there was much more to look
forward to than what they had previously thought in
spite of the gloomy global rural economy.
There is a saying, The man who says he
can, and the man who says he cant, are both
right! Faith always says, I can!.
Eddie answer a question during the open forum that
concluded the summit.
that faith is not just wishful thinking because it
is certain of the outcome and that gives hope.
Who told you that you cannot be the best
politician this world has ever known? Who told you
that you cannot be the best mechanic! the best
farmer! the best businessman! Most likely, it was
only yourself. You can change the situation if you
first change yourself. My Bible says to be renewed
by the renewal of your mind, and that is possible
if you believe. If you find yourselves lacking in
resources and ability, then there is another
natural faculty God has given that will come to
your aid. That faculty is, ingenuity. He
Eddie shared many easy to apply steps and
concluded by reading the Blessings from Deuteronomy
28 as a prayer for those present and for rural
Australia. By the time he finished, a cloud of doom
and gloom had changed to one of hope and
possibilities. The other speakers (as well as
delegates) constantly referred to Eddies
session in their presentations throughout the rest
of the day.
