Sue Baynes, personal spiritual advisor to Gold Coast mayor Tom Tate — and appointed paid city pastoral advisor last month — told a religious service in November of a ‘demonic stronghold’ at the city’s Home of the Arts (HOTA).
During the November service, Sue Baynes said HOTA previously resisted hosting a combined churches event known as Easter United.
The now council employee said she then read on Google that the HOTA locality was the ‘original gateway to Surfers Paradise’. That apparently made it ‘a place of control’.
“Those of you who know about spiritual warfare understand about gateways.”
No. Tell us more, O wise one.
“I knew from that moment the enemy had a stronghold on that land and had been controlling the traffic flow, if you like, in the spirit, to and forwards, from Surfers Paradise and that’s where it was sitting.”
Excuse me, readers. I can suddenly hear Vincent Price introing ‘Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’.
The foulest stench is in the air,
The funk of forty-thousand years.
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb,
Are closing in to seal your doom…
Home of the Arts a demonic stronghold
Sue Baynes went on to say she met with Tom Tate about the event. She told the mayor there was “a demonic stronghold at HOTA and we need to pray about that and we need to shift it.
“He said, ‘We’re building a new bridge to Surfers Paradise, to Chevron Island, and it’s actually going to be built from HOTA and go over the river’.
“He said, ‘Why don’t we pray and dedicate that new bridge to the Lord and create a new gateway?'”
Damn. I was hoping for an exorcism.
Your mother sucks socks in hell!
Or something like that.
