approved a trial street evangelisation
mission proposed by Derek recently. As
much as doing more formal preaching
through rallies, conferences and seminars
Derek also believes that Jesus and the
Gospel needs to be taken to the people
where they live and work and presented to
them in a practical way that they can
To do this
Derek will road-test an idea from FMI senior
director Eddie Russell by setting up a Prayer
Cubicle in the local market place in Peterborough
where he will hand out free copies of his book and
speak to people about what Jesus can do for them.
He will also invite people to seek prayer for their
needs in a private cubicle set up in the street.
The Prayer Station cubicles will have a sign saying
- "Need Prayer? Ask, and you will receive." If the
first outreach is a success Derek will train up
twelve people to assist and reproduce the idea
eventually covering the city.

Theresa brought some spiritual warfare prayers

on the Holy Spirit, and after much deliberation I
started teaching the people gathered (some having

salvation, blessing and curse, the god of this age,

excess of 200 people passed through the square

praying the rosary and commented on how many people
were sitting down in the vicinity listening with
interest and the two evangelical men were chatting
with people. Theresa was praying behind me for
protection and inspiration. When I finished it
seemed that something in the spiritual realms had
broken through - the atmosphere had changed. Luke

The impact of David's testimony
regarding his deliverance from
drug addiction, homosexuality and
healing of HIV/AIDS has had a
powerful impact on 100's of
people since he first shared it
at the 14th Annual Flame Congress
January this year.
The Guest Speakers at the
Respect Life Office Annual Fundraising Dinner Dance
are Archbishop Barry James Hickey and David Harp
Following an address by Archbishop Hickey, David
will share his testimony highlighting the dignity
of the homosexual person and the power of God's
grace. Through his witness David has already helped
many people experiencing same sex-attraction, and
he continues to touch the lives of so many people.
Among those who have been affected by David's story
were participants of the Embrace the Grace
Conference 2004 sponsored by the Respect Life
Office and the Archdiocesan Catholic Youth Office
where he was given a standing ovation that lasted
over 10 minutes.
Respect Life Office director, Ms Clare Pike said,
"Listening to the way God has worked in David's
life has a way of affecting all of us and
not just those with same-sex attraction. His story
is a great statement to the power, mercy and love
of God and it helps us better understand and talk
about the subject of homosexuality."
To be held from 6.30pm on Saturday November 27th
2004 people are invited to attend at the Rossetti
Restaurant 28/386 Wanneroo Rd Westminster. The $40
per person tickets will include a three course
meal, beer, wine, tea, coffee and soft drinks.

first Youth on Fire Retreat held over the
Pentecost weekend at the Benedictine
Monastery in New Norcia WA was a
on Fire - a suitable title indeed for a
youth Pentecost retreat that changed the
lives of many participants as the picture
at the top of this page indicates. FMM
provided the music and the jam-sessions
during breaks gave the weekend a sense of
balance and fun.
Teaching subjects were given by FYM leader
Shenton Surin and David Harp that
expressed the reality of God's love and
the primacy of Jesus as Lord. Shenton's
topics on the power of Pentecost and the
Spiritual Gifts inspired participants to
ask for and accept their personal
Pentecost through the Baptism of the Holy
Spirit. The presence of the Holy Spirit
and the sincere love of the youth began to
heal many from hurtful past experiences as
they began to forgive others and
especially themselves as Christ had done
on Calvary's Cross. Eddie Russell
introduced YOF with an encouraging address
marking Pentecost given by Pope John II
affirming the Charismatic dimension of our
faith praying for an "Abundant
effusion" of the charismtic gifts.
Over 95 KM from Perth, The Benedictine
Abbey at New Norcia was the ideal retreat
centre. Youth on Fire was held in St.

tranquility of New Norcia contemplatively
intact. - It is certain that FYM will do

Intercessory Prayer Services at St.,

regular feature of parish life.
Fr. John Sherman is now planning for 2005
and is looking at a Charismatic-style
Pentecost Vigil with FMI. Fremantle is
said to be the Witchcraft Capital of the
world by Wiccans themselves and this
beautiful port city that still has its
original colonial character is a haven of
art, culture and new Age lifestyle. Fr.
John has a vision for evangelisation of
the city and the Intercessory Prayer
Services are part of that preparation. It
is being discussed that in 2005 FMI could
conduct Set My people on Fire or other
Renewal Missions for the parish to assist
in this vision of evangelisation.

happened to Uganda and
FMI needed to raise $17,000.00 to $20,000.00 for
Eddie, David and Patrick to go to Uganda but it was
not possible to do so, and sadly, we had to cancel
the mission. Slovenia was secure and an Official
Invitation from the Bishop of Maribor was received.
Unfortunately, those assisting the organisers with
transport and music decided to take a holiday
instead even though they had arranged to do the
mission. This left the organisers stranded and the
mission postponed until 2005.
Other than the unreliable commitments in the
Eastern European summer holidays, the sad reality
of money was the main cause for cancellations, and
that is why our Friends of Flame Partners are so
important to FMI. Again, please consider assisting
us with your prayers and donations. If you do, it
will mean we will be able to bless those that
cannot pay for such missions as those in Uganda,
earning around 0.5 cents per day, cannot.
I wrote this book and what it explains.
I have written this book
(44 chapters) in response to many requests
from people who have read 12 Steps to Divine
Healing; it covers faith as a charism, a law, a
gift, a grace, a natural endowment and even, a
title of this book is a parody on the original
Star-Trek famous line "It's life Jim, but not as we
know it" and approaches the cosmogony of faith in
Hebrews 11:1-3. Consequently it attempts to go
boldly where no man has gone before, and hence the
title, "It's Faith Jim. But not as we know it."
In the first three verses of Hebrews 11 is
the whole mystery of faith regarding exactly what
it is and how we understand [know]
by faith that the Word of God creates the universe.
The author of Hebrews does not elaborate on this
cosmic event and promptly gives examples from
history. We can assume that because there is no
elaboration the Christians of the day knew exactly
what he meant. The question the book approaches is,
From this standpoint, I have presented how
the Mazzaroth reveals God's salvation plan written
in the constellations and how the corruption at
Babel gave birth to the modern day occult zodiac
with Biblical references and astronomical
calculations to show what people saw in the heavens
at that time. It also explains the relationship
between the Logos and the Rhema in the work of
creation, salvation and the miraculous events
revealed in the lives of Adam through to Jesus and,
for us today. Investigating the dust from which God
formed Adam, it approaches the creation of the
universe and humanity from a Sub-Atomic level and
asks, "Was Adam Sub-Atomic Dust that Speaks?"
This book is not meant to be a complete
exegesis on faith, or indeed a complete cosmogony
or cosmology even if it does have an Aristotelian
metaphysical nature, but rather to approach the
nature of faith itself in a practical way that we
can apply in daily life.
Its cosmology and cosmogony if anything, are
relating to the comments in the Letter to the
Hebrews regarding understanding the origin of the
universe by the Word of God. Because this is so
powerfully connected in Hebrews chapter eleven
verse three, we cannot approach the subject of
faith without approaching the universe itself.
Since this book is not only concerned with
the beginning, but also with the end of creation,
its foundation is on the premise that God, although
fully involved in it, is separate from it. In these
regards, its cosmogony could be in the area of the
Scholastics Hylomorphism although I am no scholar
in these matters and only discovered this
probability after setting out my thoughts.
Faith is a gift supernaturally infused by
God but it is also a law that needs application in
order to have its effect. The book attempts to
explain that law in a simple to understand way,
giving numerous practical examples as well as
inspiring personal testimonies, and explains how a
Rhema Word spoken in faith can activate a dead
body. It also explains how this can Consecrate
bread and wine, affect the Incarnation, the New
Adam and the New Eve opening up the revelation of
Christ at Cana as well as bringing a physical body
into a purely spiritual realm without breaking
spiritual or natural laws. It also explains how
faith comes, grows, gets results.
Written from the heart of the Evangelist
whose primary motivation is to bring encounter with
Jesus and conviction of his truth rather than
education alone, this book seeks to make Jesus
known to the glory of God and to inspire faith in
him that it might be told to others for their
salvation. It is therefore a simple book for the
everyday man to apply effectively in daily
