Spiritually, I believe that Tasmania needs its dark past broken off it and healed through the supernatural power of Jesus Christ and the holy spirit before the new wine that contains Gods complete blessing and kingdom can fully come.
Tasmania is synonymous in a tourism context with its convict past which involves some very dark and cruel history. Several towns are dedicated to preserving the convict past which draw thousands of visitors every year. Yes it can be interesting and people make money from it but we believe that it contributes to a darkness that hangs over the state because the land hasn't been given an opportunity to heal.
Healing the land hasn't been done through the traditional churches because unfortunately they are in fact part of the problem. Many thrive on preserving their historical church traditions which have in the past aligned themselves with secret societies, some which have never been dealt with or acknowledged as sinful, leaving legacies which make it hard for the spirit of God to dwell in.
Religion can't fix it - religion is responsible for corporatising, institutionalising and presenting Christianity to its members and the public as mere ritualistic man made church culture instead of a supernatural lifestyle.
So, spiritual warfare and knowing how to fight principalities of darkness in Tasmania is something they don't generally do, nor do they teach their congregations how to fight in spiritual warfare leaving them as sitting ducks. Why? Because the traditional church as a whole is a sitting duck for the enemy itself - they don't know HOW to fight let alone teach others.
So, let’s cut to the chase here. God needed people to carry out supernatural cleansing and healing work on the land here in Tasmania and chose us as some of those people to help him out on the ground.
Praying for the land is very similar to healing people through the supernatural power of Jesus Christ and the holy spirit. It can get a bit technical but everything we have learnt has been adapted from healing people through the authority of Jesus in conjunction with being taught by God himself - 1 John 2. 2, “you have been anointed by the Holy One’ and have all knowledge”.
We use several prayers and scriptures along with anointed oil from the holy land which varies according to what the holy spirit is telling us. The location is always instructed by God himself and it often happens spontaneously with very little notice giving the enemy little or no time to mobilise. Intense prayer and scripture is required for protection from demons attempting to land on us during the process.
The general process is this:
Prayers of protection spoken.
Prayers with scripture that break off and destroy evil that has occurred on the land in the past including curses spoken with authority of Jesus Christ.
All demons commanded to leave with authority of Jesus Christ along with decrees spoken of their destruction in Jesus Christ’s name.
Prayers of anointing the land in Jesus Christ’s name spoken while pouring (pre-prepared) holy oil onto the ground.
Prayers of inviting God through the holy spirit to come and fill the land with his healing, will, presence, love and kingdom.
Prayers of thanks and protection spoken.
The process is conducted In the spirit as much as possible and tongues are almost always spoken. Visions often accompany the process to enable us to see that change has taken place with confirmation given by the holy spirit almost all the time if the land anointing has been successful.
The good news is that we are seeing great results with spiritual atmospheres changing in entire towns and areas through the supernatural power and authority of Jesus Christ, holy spirit and angels which is contributing to an overall saturating effect on the entire land of Tasmania, bringing with it refreshment, Gods presence and kingdom.
