“Trying to restore Christ to where He never belonged!!

“DUP MP on mission to keep Christ in Christmas”. So ran the headline on the BBC internet news site on Thursday 14th December. It was referring to an attempt by DUP MP, Mr Jim Shannon, to initiate a debate on the subject of ‘Christmas’. The MP is on a mission to persuade people to “keep Christ in their Christmas”.

“Jim Shannon has tabled a motion in the House of Commons about the ‘real meaning’ of Christmas,” the BBC reported.
The motion also wishes “everyone in this United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland a very Happy Christmas and a blessed New Year”. The BBC report went on: “Although it is the season of goodwill, the Early Day Motion may not go any further, as few are actually debated.”
Well-intentioned as Mr Shannon’s attempt at having this matter debated may have been, he is however, like many Christians, wrong in thinking that Christ was ever in “Christmas”! Read more

Pope desires to change the Lord’s prayer

It was recently reported that the Pope has issued a call to change the wording of the Lord’s Prayer. He objected to a line in the prayer that asks God to ‘lead us not into temptation.’ Speaking to the media in Italy, the 80-year-old cleric said the wording should be changed to reflect that it is not God who leads humans to sin. “It is not a good translation because it speaks of a God who induces temptation,” he said. “I am the one who falls. It’s not him pushing me into temptation to then see how I have fallen. A father doesn’t do that, a father helps you to get up immediately. It’s Satan who leads us into temptation – that’s his department.”

He noted that the Catholic Church in France had already adapted the prayer to say ‘do not let us fall into temptation’. Read more


The underlying evil of the present BREXIT negotiations!

A recent headline epitomised for me just what is going on beneath the surface in the much publicised negotiations between the United Kingdom and the European Union officials.

“Europe GLOATS over Brexit breakdown as officials claim leaving EU will break UK apart”

There has been a long-term desire for the break-up of the United Kingdom harboured by the Roman Catholic dominated European countries. Read more

JERUSALEM – The City of the Great King

President Trump has declared that he intends moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.
Of course that set off the usual hysterical Muslim outcry!

By so doing, President Trump has become the first president since Israel’s founding in 1948 to recognise Jerusalem as the capital, although other presidential candidates have talked about doing so.

It has to be noted that he has more or less put it on the ‘long finger’! There is a waiver to keep the embassy in Tel Aviv for another six months, and officials say it could take years to build an embassy in Jerusalem. Read more


THE ANTICHRIST AND MANY ANTICHRISTS

“Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time,” 1 John 2:18.

It should not surprise anyone that the devil wishes to keep his master stroke against the Kingdom of God in this age as secret as possible. However, he has not been able to keep his secret. The Lord has informed His Church of the future appearing of THE ANTICHRIST, who will be Satan’s final and greatest attempt to supplant the Christ of God with his imposter. Read more

Strife between God and His People!

“Hear ye now what the LORD saith; Arise, contend thou before the mountains, and let the hills hear thy voice. Hear ye, O mountains, the LORD’S controversy, and ye strong foundations of the earth: for the LORD hath a controversy with his people, and he will plead with Israel.” Micah 6:1-2.

There is nothing more difficult for the servant of God to undertake than the task of rebuking sin amongst His people. When we contend against the wickedness of the ungodly, you will have the sympathy and support of the people of God. However, when it is necessary to contend against folly, for sin is the greatest of all follies, amongst the people of God you lose, to a great degree, that sympathy aforementioned.

The necessity of what you are doing is questioned and the motive that moves you is classified as the basest. However, it must be done. Read more


AN OLD LIE REFUTED YET AGAIN

By Rev. Ivan Foster

The report reproduced at the end of this article is taken from the County Fermanagh weekly newspaper, ‘The Impartial Reporter’, dated 20th November 2017.

In it the Chief Constable of the Police Service of Northern Ireland, George Hamilton sought to refute criticism of the police response to the IRA bombing of the Remembrance Day wreath-laying ceremony in Enniskillen back on November 8th, 1987.

Mr Hamilton said that criticism of the police investigation into the atrocity was totally wrong. The bomb exploded as a parade of Ulster Defence Regiment (UDR) soldiers was making its way to the memorial and as people waited for the ceremony to begin. It blew out the wall of the Reading Rooms, a Roman Catholic Church property which the police had not searched because of the objections of priests in previous years. It was here that many of the victims were standing. The explosion buried them under rubble and hurled masonry towards the gathered crowd. Bystanders rushed to free those trapped underneath. Read more

Sinn Féin calls for commitment on delivering ‘rights’ based issues before powersharing talks can resume

Every person who wishes to learn “The Irish Language”  may freely do so. Indeed, free eduction in the “The Irish Language” has been provided by the Northern Ireland Education System FREE for over 60 years! Despite that, very few school leavers, who have studied “Irish” in the Roman Catholic controlled school sector achieve a level of competence which enables them to freely converse in the language.

In the Irish Republic, where the teaching of “Irish” is compulsory for all citizens, there is a dwindling number of people conversant in the language! The Sinn Fein campaign is but a further attempt to “Gaelitise” British Ulster. Read the report

“Are we nearing the end of the age and how close is Christ’s return?”

By Rev Ivan Foster

When considering such a question as this, we must carefully bear in mind the words of the Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew 24:42: “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.”

Setting a date upon the Lord’s return is utter folly in the light of these words and even more so in the light of Mark 13:32. “But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.”

There are those who use this verse in Mark 13 as an argument against the study of prophecy since, they claim, even the Lord Jesus does not know the day of His return. Therefore it is useless for us to search the Scriptures for indications of when He will return, since He would not have been able to give us such information!

To me, such a notion that the verse is teaching that Christ is in ignorance of the day of His return is quite ludicrous and contrary to, indeed it is nothing short of a denial of, the truth regarding the deity and the Godhead of Christ. Read more…

Irish deputy PM no confidence motion could force election

Evangelical quits Church of England leadership over ‘heretical’ stance on sexuality

Separating from a committee of the apostate Church of England does not fulfil this commend. There must be an utter separating from all fellowship with it. “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,” 2 Corinthians 6:17. Read the Daily Telegraph article

There will be a visitation for this, more terrible than men can conceive. “They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed,” Luke 17:27-30. Read the ITV news article.

The web of lies that entangles Ulster

“No lie is of the truth,” I John 2:21.

The synopsis of a sermon preached in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church on Sabbath evening, September 11th, 1994, By Rev Ivan Foster

(A warning issued 23 years ago of the deceit and lies at work on the subject of ‘peace’ in Ulster!!)

There are times when the finger must be pointed and the lie exposed. The cause of truth in a time of deception demands that a most vigorous witness be maintained. When there is a babble of voices proclaiming the lie the servant of God must be all the more strident in order to ensure that his voice rises above the lie. We live in just such a day. The fabric of national life is riddled with the woodworm of deception and falsehood. Politics, religion, business, every strata of the nation’s affairs is corrupted by untruths. A great deception is being wrought especially upon the Ulster people in the realm of religion and the constitutional future of our province. Read more…or click here to listen.

New Stormont battle as DUP calls for imminent move to direct rule

Sinn Fein’s present strategy is not the re-establishing of power-sharing at Stormont but the introducing of some form of ‘joint rule’ by London and Dublin.

They seek to create a crisis by ever stymieing the ‘Stormont talks’ with the DUP and from the sidelines, calling  for Dublin and London to intervene in concert and replace Stormont Rule.

Sinn Fein has ever sought to undermine Northern Ireland’s Union with Great Britain and this was the reason behind their push for ‘power-sharing’ in 2006 at which the DUP, in its greed for power, jumped. Now power-sharing has run its course so Sinn Fein is presently pushing for a further step in its long term plan to destroy Northern Ireland but now by creating a further crisis.  Because their 30-years of terrorist tactics failed and ‘power-sharing’ did not produce the fruits that Republicans hoped it would, the latest objective is joint Dublin-London rule, a short step from a Dublin take-over. Read more

The Vision of the Sins of the Rulers of Jerusalem

(Ezekiel 11 – 14)

A message preached by Dr John Douglas at the Sovereign Grace Advent Testimony afternoon meeting of its Spring Conference, April 28th, 2017.

The chapters chosen for our subject are plainly instructive and carry words particularly pertinent to the age in which we live. Yet Ezekiel is a prophecy avoided by all too many of God’s people who feel these visions and these prophecies are beyond them. We do well to remember Romans 15:4, ‘Whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning… ’ Here are words we ought to keep in mind because the Lord says them. While the verse is in the New Testament, the reference is primarily to that which is written in the Old Testament. We are talking about things written specifically for our learning. When you think of that instruction in terms of Ezekiel, it is amazing. The Lord had us in mind in the writing of these chapters in Ezekiel. We can each look at chapters 11 and 12 etc. and say, Here are chapters of the Word of God given for my own edification. Read more

Mr Allister emphasises a very important point regarding the Sinn Fein’s demand for an ‘Irish Language Act’.

Readers should understand that in Northern Ireland the Irish Language is taught in every Roman Catholic controlled school and that by public funding. In fact teachers’ wages, building costs and all school supplies have been provided out of public funding for over 50 years, something that does not happen for Protestant schools such as our own here in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church. We must finance ALL our expenses. As well as this, there are 29 fully funded ‘Irish-medium’ schools in Northern Ireland. Such favourable financial provision is totally beyond the reach of the Protestant population.

Only Rome would have the brass neck to continue whining and bleating about discrimination and demanding more, of what others never had, in such circumstances!

Christian Companionship

“I am a companion of all them that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts,” Psalm 119:63.

A study based upon a sermon preached at the morning meeting in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church, 2nd September 1990, by Rev Ivan Foster.

This section of the psalm (verses 57-64) is headed by the Hebrew letter ‘Cheth’. It refers to a ‘fence’ or ‘an allotted portion’. Job 1:8-10 illustrates this. “And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land,” Job 1:8-10. The word ‘hedge’ is translated ‘fenced’ in Job 10:11. Read more

A coming event that draws very near

(The substance of a sermon preached in Bethel Free Presbyterian Church at the evening service, July 4th, 1976, by Rev Ivan Foster.)

“And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him,” Jude 1:14-15.

We are dealing with a prophecy that is almost 6000 years old.

From the very beginning, mankind has had a knowledge of the coming of Christ in judgment. The Old Testament is full of information concerning the events at the end of this age.

Notice that Enoch was looking to that day for the execution of justice upon the ungodly. Read more

Everyone wants to see an end to bullying but Alliance MLA Trevor Lunn’s call for legislation making things “illegal” off the back of last week’s report entitled ‘Post-Primary School Experiences of People who are LGBT’ is concerning.
What does Mr Lunn want made illegal?

Consider the following quote: “Transgender young people were significantly disadvantaged by schools not understanding them or their needs and that particular attention needs to be paid to: names, pronouns, uniform, toilets and changing facilities.”

Are Alliance suggesting biologically male pupils be permitted by law to use female toilets and changing facilities? Should biologically male school staff have similar rights?

Are Alliance suggesting legislation to stop Christians witnessing to fellow pupils because telling someone “being LGBT is wrong in the eyes of God” is language that has made pupils “uncomfortable”?

Should legislation require people address individuals using pronouns not associated with their sex but what they, on any given day of the week, want to “identify” as?

These issues doesn’t stop in schools. Martin Ponting, who was sentenced to life in 1995 for the rape of two girls under the age of 16, was recently moved to an all-women prison in Surrey. He has now been segregated from the other prisoners for reasons as yet unconfirmed by the authorises. Will the Martin Pontings of the world be the next people liberals campaign for?

In Orwell’s 1984 the Party seeks to force people to deny reality. In one famous scene the novel’s protagonist is told: “The Party is strong and omniscient, and therefore if the Party says that two and two equals three, or five, it will always be right: you, by yourself, cannot know the truth.

Similarly, Alliance appears to believe that because a biological male says he is a girl society should be forced, by the state, to agree.

The report Alliance suggests we base legislation on isn’t just about bullying. It pushes an agenda which could have serious ramifications for personal space, child protection, female sport and freedom of speech and religion.

The unspeakable evil of promoting ‘Transgender Ideology in Schools’

Here is how one newspaper reported a recent controversy about this appalling issue.

“A Christian family is preparing to sue their sons’ Church of England school after boys were allowed to come to class wearing dresses.

Nigel Rowe, 44, and his wife Sally, 42, removed their six-year-old son from the unnamed school after a male classmate was allowed to attend the primary school in a dress.

They intend to educate him at home on the Isle of Wight alongside his eight-year-old brother. The older boy was pulled from the same school – which has a uniform – a year ago when a boy in his class also started wearing dresses. Read more

Vatican“The US state department said it had asked the Vatican to lift the official’s diplomatic immunity on August 21, but the request was denied. For the US state department to make such a request, its lawyers would have needed to be convinced there was reasonable cause for criminal prosecution.”

“Why do some Christian women paint their faces??”

It is difficult to understand why this habit is prevalent amongst professing Christian women. I don’t believe that those who practise this habit can find any precedent for it in the behaviour of former generations of godly women.

One wonders how a husband is not perplexed by a wife’s habit of painting her face, when it is usually the case that she paints herself only when preparing to go out to meet others. It surely is obvious that she is not painting her face for him as invariably she is bare-faced in her own home! Why should that be so?

The Lord said this to Israel on one occasion: “Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair; thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life,” Jeremiah 4:30.

These words make it clear that “the painting (or rending), of the face” by a woman is the action associated with one desirous of alluring a man. That in itself is enough reason for any chaste woman to abhor utterly such a practice! Read more


The Future for this Age and the People of God.

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come,” 2 Timothy 3:1.

The Word of God makes it clear for us just what will be the character of the final days of this age. It also makes clear, just how we may know that we have entered the last days.
Such a knowledge is sadly beyond the parameters of the average Christian today.

It ought not to be!

Jacob was able to say to his sons: “Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days,” Genesis 49:1. But tragically, the vast majority of the sons of Jacob today have no knowledge of the meaning of their progenitor’s words.

But believers should not be in such ignorance. Read more

Parties are ‘useful idiots’ on Irish: Jim Allister

One must agree with Mr Allister and think of the ancient proverb: “Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad!”

Paul used similar words of the so-called wise men of this world which admirably suit the Unionists in Stormont for they long ago forsook the counsel of God’s Word for their own folly. “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness,” 1 Corinthians 3:19.

WHAT IT WAS CONVINCED ME TO ESPOUSE CHRISTIAN EDUCATION

Looking back on life, we become aware that behind the decisions that were made in years past where many interwoven influences and events, all of which served to move one’s mind in a certain direction and bring about a crossroads decision that had a major impact upon our future life.

So it was with me and my wife Ann concerning Christian Education. I am going to employ the letters A, B and C in the three points I wish to set before you.

I. We were ALARMED as parents by what children were being taught in the state school.
My wife trained to be a teacher of French, German and Latin but because of her membership of the Free Presbyterian Church was unable to obtain a post. Her experience in Enniskillen Girls Collegiate School illustrates this well. She was invited to take up a post and even introduced to some staff members as a new appointee. The headmistress then, seeing her engagement ring, discovered that she was to marry me. When she returned to the school a few days later to prepare for teaching she was told that the school committee had not endorsed her appointment. That was the sort of discrimination carried out against Free Presbyterians back in 1967!

Pastor John MacArthur Answers: Is It Sinful to Provide Services for a Gay Wedding?

John MacArthur fails to distinguish between business encounters with sodomites unawares and that of knowingly and consciously becoming involved in the promoting and endorsing of sodomy as was the case with the Ashers Bakery.

Paul has a word on this matter: “I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat,” 1 Corinthians 5:9-11.

Albert Barnes explains these words so: ‘In my direction not “to company” with them, I did not mean that you should refuse all kinds of intercourse with them; that you should not treat them with civility, or be engaged with them in any of the transactions of life, or in the ordinary intercourse of society between man and man, for this would be impossible; but that you should not so associate with them as to be esteemed to belong to them, or so as to be corrupted by their example. You are not to make them companions and friends.’

There’s nothing wrong with being gay, says DUP councillor

What say the professing Christian fellow DUP councillors?!

We know what God says about this matter:

“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them,” Leviticus 20:13.

“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind (sodomites), nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-11.

If there is nothing wrong with being “gay”, to use the euphemistic term so loved of those who hate the Bible’s description of this wicked lifestyle, why does God declare that they will not enter heaven unless they repent and forsake this wickedness???

DUP MP’s ‘surprising’ Pride message

The main issue in this article is the support for the sodomite ‘Gay Pride’ parade by DUP ‘new girl’, Emma Little-Pengelly. She defies God’s Word when she says that that sodomites should “be able to live a proud life”. There should be no pride taken in disobeying God and embarking upon a lifestyle so repugnant to God.

Her view is an indication of the DUP’s swing toward supporting the sodomite call for ‘marriage’ rights. She has been prominent since her introduction to the DUP ‘upper echelon’ and her election as a Westminster MP.

As stated in a previous news link, the signs are there that the DUP will soon shift its position.

As a professing Christian, Jim Wells, quoted in the article, will have to do more than express ‘surprise’ at her attitude. Utter condemnation is called for at the very least.

To remain faithful to God, his sojourn in the DUP must end soon. That is the challenge for the Christians within the DUP’s ranks of elected representatives and supporters??

Former DUP councillor, Ruth Patterson is quoted as saying: “At the end of the day, who are we to judge anyone and the way they live their lives?” Christians use the same authority to condemn sodomy as is used when condemning murder and terrorism, something Ruth Patterson has not been slow to do, the Word of God!

Martin Luther, Catholicism and the Practice of Sodomy

Letter of protest to Chief Constable

Below is a letter from Rev Ian Brown of Martys Memorial Free Presbyterian Church Protesting to Chief Constable at the presence of serving officers in the sodomite parade in Belfast.

Martyrs Memorial Church
4 August 2017

Dear Chief Constable Hamilton,

Though previous participation by serving officers in your police force in the annual ‘Gay Pride’ parade through Belfast City should have prepared me for this year’s new development of officers parading in the uniform of the PSNI, I am still extremely shocked.

Irrespective of who is the designated target I have no desire to see hate crimes of any nature being committed or defended within my country, however the nature of the police involvement in this event generates serious concern on a number of levels.

Respect for public decency
In any other circumstances, the inappropriate attire and activities of a significant number of those who have comprised this parade on all former occasions would constitute a gross infringement of public decency. The overt and vulgar sexual imagery that has been typical of the previous parades your officers have policed in the past should have alerted you to the fact that this is not an appropriate event with which any of your personnel should identify while in official uniform. To reach a decision that there is justification for some of your officers and vehicles becoming an integral part of a parade that has annually displayed placards containing vicious verbal assaults on true biblical religion and mercilessly castigated political figures in our province is nothing short of an outrage and besmirches the reputation of the PSNI which is meant to behave as a politically neutral organisation.

Expectation of true equality
It is not at all reassuring to Bible-believing Christians to note that responses to earlier letters of complaint appear to invoke the actions of other police forces in the United Kingdom which have explained participation in similar events as being based on a policing purpose – especially since a significant number of those police forces have been to the forefront in recently attempting to prosecute Christian preachers on the basis of alleged hate crimes when they have merely mentioned the verdict of Holy Scripture on the practice of homosexuality. The resources invested in these vacuous cases and the almost invariable rejection of them by the judiciary simply serve to emphasise the incredible bias inherent in many of our police forces in addressing this issue. The policy being pursued by the PSNI at this event has the effect, not of equalising our society, but of elevating a miniscule percentage of it into a special category that is afforded privileges and protections not available to others. By so explicitly tying your uniform and badge to this special interest grouping will undoubtedly further ostracise those who mount a legitimate protest against what the Bible teaches is a promotion of moral decadence.

I send this letter with little expectation that the practice which you have adopted with respect to this parade will be altered. However you should be reminded that the Word of God is the ultimate unalterable authority and, no matter how you express your identification with a practice that He so consistently condemns, His sovereign purpose will inevitably hold sway in the affairs of men; Jeremiah 14:10: “Thus saith the LORD unto this people, Thus have they loved to wander, they have not refrained their feet, therefore the LORD doth not accept them; He will now remember their iniquity, and visit their sins.”

Yours sincerely,

Ian Brown.

Minister, Martyrs Memorial Free Presbyterian Church, Belfast.


Leo Varadkar: (Dublin Prime Minister) NI same-sex marriage ‘only a matter of time’

The ground is being prepared for a total political sell-out on this issue. All the major political parties in NI are in favour of this wickedness with the exception of the DUP, which at best can be seen by its present silence, as becoming ever more equivocal!

The Traditional Unionist Party has raised its voice of opposition.

There is nothing equivocal about God’s Word on this matter and it ALONE is our rule of faith and practice.

Sadly, there is no real organised, concerted opposition by Christians to the sodomite campaign.

A Message from 31 years ago which is still relevant today: Christian Schools and the Future of Free Presbyterianism

A message preached by Rev Ivan Foster at the 2nd Seminar on Christian Education, held in Martyrs’ Memorial Church, Belfast, as part of the annual Easter Convention, March 29th, 1986.

“If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore,” Psalm 132:12.

In 1978 the Presbytery of Ulster of the Free Presbyterian Church heard a request from Rev. Ivan Foster to consider the need for Christian schools. Following a discussion a delegation of ministers and elders met officials of the Department of Education.
The outcome of the meeting was a recommendation to Presbytery that permission be granted to any church that wished to start a school. The Presbytery agreed in principle and appointed a Presbytery Education Board, chaired by Rev. Foster, to supervise the new missionary enterprise.

In September of the next year, Kilskeery Church started the first Free Presbyterian school.
