A time to be remembered

50 years ago Lord’s Day October 23rd.

Lord’s Day 23rd October 1966 a ‘Welcome Home’ rally was attended by some 12,000 people to mark the release from the Crumlin Road prison of Rev Ian Paisley, Rev John Wylie and Rev Ivan Foster.

A section of the crowd gathered to welcome home the three ministers


Those truly were the beginning of revival days. Please read the article “A time to be remembered” located below and see something of God’s mercy and blessing upon a reproached people 50 years ago.

“To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen,” Jude 1:25.
A-time-to-be-remembered-coverA feature article commemorating the 50th anniversary of the events that led up to and which followed after the 1966 imprisonment of Rev Ian Paisley, Rev John Wylie and Rev Ivan Foster for a term of 3 months in Crumlin Road Jail, Belfast.This account is compiled from reports in the Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster’s magazine, “The Revivalist” and some reports from the “Belfast Newsletter” and the “Belfast Telegraph”.

I have put together this collection of articles which appeared in the Revivalist in 1966 and 1967, and one from 1968, as well as some newspaper accounts of the June 6th protest, led by the late Dr. Paisley. The parade consisted of some 200 Free Presbyterian men, woman and children. It processed from Ravenhill Church to the building where the annual General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church was taking place. The aim of the event was to honour God, contend for the faith and highlight the ecumenical apostasy of that denomination.

Such were the consequences of that night’s protest that the small Free Presbyterian church, hardly known outside of the six counties of Northern Ireland, became the subject of discussion, mostly derogatory, throughout Christendom! But much more important was the moving of the Spirit of God that became evident within the ranks of the Free Presbyterian church from that time.

God was pleased to work mightily amongst us, adding to our numbers many new congregations and hundreds of new converts.

Jim Allister’s speech and lonely stand against pardon for sodomites

The two videos below show Mr Jim Allister, MLA’s speech in the debate in the Stormont Assembly on Monday 28th November on the legislative consent motion brought forward by the Northern Ireland Justice Minister to grant a posthumous pardon to sodomites of violations of the law in the past. Mr Jim Allister moved an amendment removing the reference to a pardon for sodomy and the videos show him speaking in support of his amendment.

Then the Assembly moved to what should have been a vote. The only person to support the amendment was its proposer, Mr  Allister. He was left on his own at the front of the Assembly. Opportunity was given by the Speaker for a second person to come forward and oppose the pardon but none was forthcoming so Mr Allister’s amendment was rejected.

A Free Presbyterian seated in the public gallery was able to observe Free Presbyterian DUP MLAs Edwin Poots, Carla Lockhart and Gordon Dunne stay rooted to their seats. The Free Presbyterian also noted that MLA members of the Presbytery of the Free Presbyterian Church, Mervyn Storey, Lord Morrow and Thomas Buchanan, were not in the chamber.

It is tragic that there has not been the reaction one would expect from God’s people following such an outrageous betrayal of the gospel. Even the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, deemed apostate by the Presbytery of the Free Presbyterian Church, acted against former Alliance Party leader, David Ford, when he publicly supported sodomite marriage. He was removed as a ruling elder by his church.
“In the day that thou stoodest on the other side, in the day that the strangers carried away captive his forces, and foreigners entered into his gates, and cast lots upon Jerusalem, even thou wast as one of them,” Obadiah 1:11. – The Editor.


Joel Beeke’s book store and endorsement of sodomy

Back in September of this year, I published an article on Joel Beeke entitled: “Joel Beeke preaches for and publicly seeks closer links with sodomy-endorsing Dutch denomination!”

Near the beginning of this article I stated: “In the past he has shared platforms with pro-sodomite speakers and sold books extolling the sodomite life-style.”

I was challenged regarding the very last phrase of this statement. It was pointed out that the internet link I gave in support of this statement revealed that in the library of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary there was a book by Wesley Hill, a man who would term himself a “Christian Gay”!!!

Of course, theological libraries contain books by authors that it may not endorse.
That was the wrong link for me to use to show that Dr Beeke endorses sodomy-promoting writers. It was said that this ‘error’ detracted from the effectiveness of my article.

However, that mistake on my part does not invalidate my allegation regarding Dr Beeke’s endorsement of pro-sodomite writers.

This I will demonstrate this by asking readers to check out this linkRead more

Countering the Counterfeiters

countefeit_cashAn examination of Galatians 1:4 conducted over four Sabbath mornings in Tavistock Free Presbyterian Church by visiting preacher, Rev Ivan Foster (Retired)

“Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father,” Galatians 1:4.

There is only one Gospel and it is that taught by the Saviour to His apostles and that which they preached to the world. It is fully revealed to us in the Bible, especially in the New Testament.

It is a gospel ever under attack from the one Paul refers to in 2 Cor 4:4. “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”

That attack in ongoing today; indeed, we are told by the Lord that it will intensify in the days before the Saviour’s return. “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils,” 1 Tim 4:1.

The diligence shown by the devil is seen in that the Galatian churches have come under attack from him very shortly after their formation. Note verse 6. “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel.” I believe that I can say with certainty that the work in Galatia was no more than 10 years old!

DUP ENDORSES THE VALIDATION OF HOMOSEXUALITY AS ‘NORMAL SEXUAL ACTIVITY’!

stormontTraditional Unionist Voice MLA, Jim Allister received no support whatever from any professing Christian in the Assembly and therefore his amendment to the Bill fell.

I read with dismay the reports of the debate in Stormont on the Bill brought forward by the Executive to posthumously pardon sodomites convicted of violations of the law in the past.

I was particularly saddened that it would appear that Jim Allister, the Traditional Unionist Voice leader, was the only voice raised in opposition to this iniquitous proposal. The failure of Christians to stand with Mr Allister, and I am thinking of Free Presbyterians in particular, is heart-breaking for one who recalls the various statements and protests that the Presbytery of the Free Presbyterian Church issued in the past and of the witness borne within our Province and much wider afield to the condemnation of God upon this wickedness and the warnings of the dire consequences on any people or nation which embraced and endorsed this evil.

Through the efforts of the DUP in Stormont, that which God has repeatedly condemned and manifested His wrath against, has been legitimised and validated. Sodomy is now accepted by the DUP and all its members, including Free Presbyterians, through this decision which validates sodomy, thereby shaking a fist in God’s face and wickedly defying Him and His holy Law.

When I issued the first edition of “The Burning Bush” back in 1970, I would never have believed the day would come when I should have to write such words!

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20. Read more

Dutch pastor insists he was right to ‘come out of the closet’.

Insight into the Dutch denomination Dr Joel Beeke is anxious to promote closer links with!!!

A minister in the Restored Reformed Church (HHK is the acronym from the Dutch form of the denominational name) Dustin Burggraaf, recently gave an interview to the Reformed Daily newspaper in the Netherlands. It was published on November 12th, 2016. He also published a fuller form of the interview on his own website. There follows below a translation of the version of the interview he has on his website rather than the version which appeared in print.

This matter is of great interest simply because Dustin Burggraaf came out as a homosexual in April 2014. He announced that decision in the same newspaper and the original report of that event is also posted on his website. Read more

Sodomites welcomed to the Lord’s Supper by many Dutch Protestant Churches

The following articles are translations of reports on Dutch websites detailing a recent survey of views in several Dutch reformed denominations on the subject of homosexuality. The reports give an insight in the general state of mainline Reformed Churches in Holland, and even of some that would claim to be more conservative. The reports give alarming evidence of the rapid advance of the sodomite agenda within the ranks of professing Christianity. This is evidence of the great apostasy at work that the Saviour warns of, Luke 17:28-30.

This research provides valuable context for our recent article on the compromise of Dr. Joel Beeke in preaching for HHK congregations in Holland. Read more

The Timeless Relevance of the Protestant Reformation

reformers_wall“And the LORD of hosts shall stir up a scourge for him according to the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb: and as his rod was upon the sea, so shall he lift it up after the manner of Egypt,” Isaiah 10:26.

The final message in a series commemorating the glorious Protestant Reformation, preached 20 years ago, on November 3rd, 1996, in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church by the then minister, Rev Ivan Foster.

In our text, there is a demonstration of the unchanging nature of God and of His mode of operation. This is a prophecy of the destruction of the Antichrist, given by the Lord through Isaiah some 750 years before the birth of Christ. The Lord states that He shall act against the Antichrist as He acted against the Midianites, some 1250 years before Isaiah’s day, and as He acted against the Egyptians some 250 years prior to that. Three thousand two hundred and fifty years and three thousand five hundred years respectively have passed since the two incidents mentioned in our text and yet more years will pass before the prophecy is fulfilled, but when God acts in fulfillment of this prophecy, it will be in a display of very, very old-fashioned power. The lesson that we draw from this is that God has not changed nor will He ever change. As He acted in the days of Pharaoh, in the days of Gideon, so He will act in the end of this age when He puts down Antichrist and his minions.

This being so, the Bible’s record of God’s words and dealings with men is of unique and timeless relevance. The record of His dealings with mankind that is contained in the uninspired writings of men, while not to be trusted and obeyed unquestioningly, nevertheless provides us with a record from which we may learn much about heaven’s purpose for this world. Read more…or listen using the player below.

Encouraging the wife to ‘beautify her face’!!!

makeupI have heard it said that the incident in Ruth 3:3 has been used to justify a woman attempting to make herself beautiful by the means of makeup!

Before coming to the text, it appears to me that any woman who sets out to ‘improve her appearance’ from its normal state, is acknowledging something rather astonishing! It surely must mean that she is conceding she is in need of improvement!

Brave indeed would be the man who makes that suggestion to his wife. It would give the impression that he is having second thoughts on the wisdom of the choice he made when he asked her to marry him!

I recall hearing it said that Dr Bob Jones, the founder of Bob Jones University, once offered some advice on the subject of make-up to female students in the University. “If the barn door needs painting, then paint it!!”

Such a course of action it would appear was being offered to those females who felt that they had a face like an unpainted barn door. Read more

DUP members give a lead in defying God and His law!!!

stormontJustice Minister Claire Sugden has announced in Stormont that “she has secured approval of fellow Executive ministers in the DUP/Sinn Fein-led administration to extend to Northern Ireland the provision for pardons in the Government’s Policing and Crime Bill.” (Belfast Telegraph, 8/11/16).

The DUP denied its involvement in the funding of sodomites for the first year or so of the ‘Power-sharing’ executive’s life. It berated anyone who dared to state the truth as a ‘liar’!Then it was finally acknowledged by Peter Robinson that funding had taken place. That funding has continued with DUP former minister Mervyn Storey, in a statement at the beginning of 2015, acknowledging that his department had given money to sodomite organisations. (See Mervyn Storey, Minister for Social Development in the Northern Ireland Executive, tried to distance himself from funding of sodomites)

This latest decision takes the matter much further, for this is something that the DUP in conjunction with Sinn Fein have initiated. When the DUP in 2007, through the Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister, took over the funding of sodomites, they were continuing a scheme which had been initiated by the last Secretary of State before power-sharing, Peter Hain.

They cannot hide behind the skirts of a Westminster politician this time and blame him for the shameful enterprise.

This the DUP are fully implicated in from its inception. Read more

DUP’s Downward Path

screen-shot-2016-10-30-at-12-26It is strange how that a turning of the back upon God brings about a reversing of a person’s moral values!

News reports claimed that the DUP leader, Mrs Arlene Foster, had recently stated in a BBC report on 28th October 2016 that “Gays are welcome in DUP” – (Read the report here).

Sadly, as far as I know, there was no protest by members of the DUP to that announcement. There may well have been and I sincerely hope there was but I never saw any reports of any objections from within the ranks of the DUP where there are many who profess to be Christians.

In 1977, Dr Ian Paisley, the founder of the party, launched a campaign aimed at stopping the decriminalising of sodomy in Ulster. It was called: “Save Ulster from Sodomy.” Read more

The Glorious Legacy of the Protestant Reformation

latimer-ridleyStand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage, Galatians 5:1.

The third of four messages preached 20 years ago, in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church by the then minister, Rev Ivan Foster, to commemorate the glorious Protestant Reformation

Nearly 500 years have passed since the beginning of that remarkable occurrence we call the Protestant Reformation. Such a distance in time permits us to examine thoroughly the effect of that great spiritual and social upheaval.

The sacred record of the gospel’s impact upon the city of Samaria (Acts 8:5-8) ends with a wonderfully expressive statement. And there was great joy in that city. That was the legacy that was left behind after a time of spiritual blessing. What was left behind in Europe after the Reformation had taken place? To answer such a question fully would require volumes of historical data and comment. To answer it in the course of a sermon requires us to concentrate upon one central aspect of the effects of the Reformation. Read moreor listen using the player below.

Since the Jesuits came into existence to destroy the Protestant Reformation we have little doubt as to the objectives of this conference!!
Encounters between Catholics and Protestants in Africa July 11-14 2017, the Jesuit Historical Institute in Africa (JHIA) will host a conference in Nairobi on the subject of the relationship between Catholics and Protestants on African soil in African history. The sixteenth century events and the historical and theological novelty that they set in motion might easily pass uncelebrated in Africa. Read more

“IS THERE ANY WORD FROM THE LORD?”

welcome_home_rally(Synopsis of the message preached by Rev Ivan Foster at the ‘Welcome Home’ rally 50 years ago today, Oct 23-16)

“Then Zedekiah the king sent, and took him out: and the king asked him secretly in his house, and said, Is there any word from the LORD? And Jeremiah said, There is: for, said he, thou shalt be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon,” Jeremiah 37:17.

This is the text I preached upon 50 years ago on Oct 23rd, 1966, at the ‘Welcome Home’ rally at Dundonald on the fringes of Belfast. It was organised by the Free Presbyterian Church after the release of Dr Paisley, Rev John Wylie and myself from the Crumlin Road Prison on the previous Wednesday and Thursday. Dr Paisley was arrested a day earlier than John and myself so he was released a day earlier. The meeting was chaired by Rev S B Cooke who was Deputy Moderator.

There is an brief account of the gathering and the opposition it encountered given in “The Revivalist” back then and reproduced on pages 31-32 of “A time to be Remembered”.

I only wish I had some record of the messages preached that day by Dr Paisley, Rev John Wylie or Dr Bob Jones Jr for they would make much better reading than do the words of my brief address. Read more

UNESCO Denies the Bible’s Record of Israel’s Claim to the Temple Mount!!

unesco-bannerThe executive committee of UNESCO has ratified a decision to erase Jewish history on the Temple Mount.

It is now the official position to ignore Judaism’s 3,000 year history at the site.

Early this morning, October 19th, the executive committee of UNESCO ratified the decision to erase Jewish history on the Temple Mount. It is now the official position to ignore Judaism’s 3,000 year history at the site.

A dangerous precedent has been set – a UN body is calling Israel “the occupying power” at the Western Wall and essentially denying the historical facts that tie Israel to Jerusalem. It could have serious implications on Israel’s future.

It is time to fight fire with fire. More than 23,000 people have signed our petition demanding the UN explicitly recognize Judaism’s history on the Temple Mount and Western Wall – will you join them?

Click here to add your name and demand the UN explicitly recognize Judaism’s history on the Temple Mount and Western Wall

UNESCO didn’t just erase Jewish history, they erased Christian history at the holy site as well. Scripture says Jesus prayed at the Temple. There’s evidence that Byzantine Christians used the Temple Mount before the Muslim conquest of Jerusalem. But in UNESCO’s resolution, all history – other than Islamic history – was erased.

If we don’t act now, Judaism could lose its place at its most sacred site and Israel’s international standing could be in danger. In the face of this travesty, we must stand up for Israel.

41 US Senators, Representatives and more than 23,000 signers to our petition oppose UNESCO’s anti-Israel resolution. Will you, your friends and your family join them?

Divisions – and the use God makes of them

torn_paper“For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you,”1 Corinthians 11:19.

(A message preached at Kilskeery Free Presbyterian weekly prayer meeting, 17th October 2016, by Rev Ivan Foster)

The word ‘heresy’ is derived from the storming of a city and the taking over of it. Divisions come about when the mind and heart has been taken captive by a falsehood, an error. The word ‘division’ verse 18, means “a rent or a tear”, Matt 9:16.

The Unquenchable Power of the Protestant Reformation

reformers_wall“When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him,” Isaiah 59:19.

The Second of four messages preached 20 years ago, in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church by the then minister, Rev Ivan Foster, to commemorate the glorious Protestant Reformation

Looking back upon history is unfashionable in these ecumenical days. It is nevertheless wise and in keeping with the Word of God. For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope, Romans 15:4. The enemy referred to in our text may be identified from Genesis 3:15. And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. The spirit of the enemy of all that is of God is found in the devil and his agents. He is the great adversary of the good and the godly. As the enemy, he has sought the utter destruction of God’s people and the witness to Him and His glory that they bear. He wishes not merely to oppose or hinder but to destroy utterly. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it, John 8:44. To that end he comes in like a flood. Read moreor listen using the player below.

My sermon on Dr Beeke’s errors removed from SermonAudio

I have been informed by Mr Steven Lee of SermonAudio that the sermon I preached on Lord’s Day evening 9th October in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church has been removed from his site.

The sermon was entitled:

“WHAT NOW FOR THE FRIENDS OF JOEL BEEKE?”
Which path will the Free Presbyterian Church choose? Disowning Dr. Joel Beeke’s compromises or Displeasing the Lord of Glory?
“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them,” Ephesians 5:11.

Some time ago, a recording by Pastor Ralph Ovadal in which he exposed the errors and compromises of Dr Joel Beeke was also removed.

The reasons given for the removal of my sermon were as follows Read more

Dr Facing-Both-Ways!!!

beeke_worship_screen-shot-2016-10-11-at-13-44-10Further Evidence of Dr Joel Beeke’s duplicity

Dr Joel Beeke has gained a reputation amongst many as an upholder of the “Old Time Religion”! In the eyes of his admirers, he is “Mr Puritan”, “Mr Orthodoxy”, “Mr Reformation” or, if I might borrow the title given by the great John Bunyan to another of his characters in “Pilgrim’s Progress, he is deemed to be “Mr Valiant for the Truth”!

Such a view of Dr Joel Beeke is far removed from the truth concerning this man. He is more deserving of the title “Dr Facing-Both-Ways.” Read more

Email exchange with Dr. Beeke

In my sermon: “WHAT NOW FOR THE FRIENDS OF JOEL BEEKE?” I made mention of an email exchange I had with Dr Beeke in January and February 2013 ( I mistakenly referred to 2014 in my sermon).

I am remounting that exchange from the March 2013 edition of “The Burning Bush” for I believe it to be very relevant to the present controversy regarding Dr Beeke.

The email exchange shows that Dr Beeke was faithfully warned on a number of occasions about the crowd he was running with and he chose to ignore the warnings. The issues were set down in great detail but Dr Beeke made no attempt whatever to deal with them, but, it may be said, simply ran away from them.

It has to be also said that Dr Beeke’s friends likewise chose to ignore the attempts that were made by Pastor Ralph Ovadal and myself to speak to him as a brother.
They put their head in the sand and took no notice of the damning evidence we produced and the very unscriptural attitude adopted by Dr Beeke. Indeed, so supportive were they of him in his folly, they accompanied him in his “turning a blind eye and a deaf ear” to the clear evidence set forth.

Whatever the outcome of this battle for the truth of God and the maintenance of a separated witness in these times of increasing apostasy, none will be able to say that the errors of Dr Joel Beeke were not confronted. Those who sided with him did so despite the truth of God being shone upon his and their folly.

“WHAT NOW FOR THE FRIENDS OF JOEL BEEKE?”

Which path will the Free Presbyterian Church choose? Disowning Dr. Joel Beeke’s compromises or Displeasing the Lord of Glory?

“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them,” Ephesians 5:11.

Throughout my ministry I have preached to the best of my ability the Word of God and applied it to those who were caught up in the errors of the ecumenical denominations, in order that they might be aware of what God would have them do in the face of the deceptions and delusions propagated by the devil and his agents. That is the duty of a servant of God.

Now, at the close of my pulpit ministry, I find myself addressing my fellow Free Presbyterians and that with a trembling heart. Read more

For whom has Christ reserved a crown?

“Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing,” 2 Tim 4:8.

The phrase, “there is laid up” appears in Colossians 1:5. We can see its exact meaning there. “For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel,” Colossians 1:5.

That for which the child of God hopes is the “crown if righteousness” to which Paul refers in our text.

  • The child of God is an “overcomer” despite our many falls and set-backs and defeats.
  • Our life of victory began at our conversion. 1 John 2:12-15, 4:4-6.
  • Our overcoming is due to Christ’s victory, John 16:33.
  • Thus we are enabled to overcome sin, Romans 12:21.
  • Even when we appear to suffer defeat, we remain overcomers through Christ. Compare Revelation 13:7 and 15:2
  • The finale of our overcoming is that moment when we receive the winner’s garland from the hand of the Saviour.

A shameful betrayal of Gospel Truth by Presbyterian minister and Assistant Grand Master of the Orange Order, Rev Mervyn Gibson

mervyn-gibsonHe says that Orange Order Orange Order members ‘should be allowed to attend Mass’!

Speaking on BBC Radio Ulster’s Talkback on Wednesday 5th October, 2016, senior Orangeman Mervyn Gibson said he, personally, would like to see the rule which bans members of the Orange Order from attending the Roman Catholic Mass changed.
It is a shameful betrayal of the teaching of the Bible and the whole witness of the Protestant Reformation and the honoured martyrs who died to uphold the truth that the Mass was a blasphemy.

Gibson’s argument for supporting the removal of the rule is stupid and utterly unscriptural. Read more

The Essential Character of the Protestant Reformation

reformers_wall“I have found the book of the law in the house of the LORD,” 2 Chronicles 34:15.

♦ The first of four messages preached 20 years ago, in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church by the then minister, Rev Ivan Foster, to commemorate the glorious Protestant Reformation ♦

In this, the first of a planned series of messages commemorating the 16th century Protestant Reformation, I wish to speak upon the character of that great movement which embraced all of Europe and which, to this day, still exercises a profound impact upon the life of our nation.

When I think of that great time of blessing, I am deeply ashamed of the image that Protestantism has today in our land and throughout the world. Much of what is considered Protestantism would be utterly repudiated by the Reformers.

The murder campaign waged by loyalist gunmen here in Ulster is, in the eyes of many, the action of Protestants. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The mindless hatred that is so often featured as an expression of Protestant views is likewise far from being in any way representative of the spirit of Protestantism.
The time-serving politicians of Ulster are seen by many as representatives of the thinking of true Protestants. How saddening that is for any with an understanding of and love for the doctrines of the Reformation. Read more

Joel Beeke preaches for and publicly seeks closer links with sodomy-endorsing Dutch denomination!

beeke♦ His departure cannot get much worse and leaves his supporters with a stark choice.
♦ How long are some ministers going to continue attempting to whitewash this man?
♦ God’s warning stands sure: “Behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out,” Numbers 32:23.

Most of our readers should be aware of the controversy surrounding Dr Joel Beeke and his links with those whose standing should not be acceptable to the Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster. In the past he has shared platforms with pro-sodomite speakers and sold books extolling the sodomite life-style. This can be checked out in Pastor Ralph Ovadal’s article: “The Downward Spiral of Dr. Joel Beeke’s Ministries Continues”.

However, as is the inevitable outcome of compromise, he has gone even further. On a preaching visit to Holland, he preached in pulpits which are occupied by sodomite-supporting ministers. But, not content with such a violation of God’s Word, Dr Beeke used the occasion to express a desire for his church, Heritage Netherlands Reformed Congregation, to have formal links with the Restored Reformed Church denomination which has endorsed the dreadful doctrine that a sodomite can be a true believer and even a minister of the Lord Jesus Christ. Read more

Editor’s correspondence with ‘Father’ Patrick McCafferty

Pastor James McConnell and the RC priest Patrick McCafferty with whom he is most friendly

Pastor James McConnell and the RC priest Patrick McCafferty with whom he is most friendly

Back in 2002, I entered into a correspondence in the pages of “The Burning Bush” with a Roman Catholic priest from Belfast. The correspondence arose after I wrote a letter in reply to an article by the priest in “The Belfast Telegraph” of August 24th, 2002.

I was grieved at such a platform being given to the errors and deceptions of Rome and commented on the priest’s article in a letter to “The Belfast Telegraph.”

It will be noted how our two replies to the priest were edited by the ‘Letters Editor’ of “The Belfast Telegraph” before they quickly closed the exchange after two exchanges.

The Word of God was not liked by that ecumenical newspaper back then and it is still the case. Every effort was made to shield and protect the priest of Rome from the rebuke of God’s Word.

We are republishing the correspondence, which continued for eight exchanges, and appeared in “The Burning Bush” from October 2002 until May 2003, because of the publicity given to the ‘warm relationship’ that was manifested between this priest and Pastor James McConnell during the recent trial occasioned by Pastor McConnell’s pulpit statements about Islam. Pastor McConnell asked ‘Father’ Patrick McCafferty to speak on his behalf during the trial.

All this “ecumenical camaraderie” between the pastor and the priest may appear to some to give endorsement of the teachings of Rome and it is for this reason we highlight again the errors this priest, like all Roman Catholic clerics, propagates.

Needless to say, it also highlights the folly of James McConnell!

Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church

Lord’s Day 9th October

Preacher: Rev Ivan Foster

Special subjects: 

11.30 am – “For whom has Christ reserved a crown?”

7.00 pm – “Which path will the Free Presbyterian Church choose? Repudiating Dr. Joel Beeke’s compromises or Displeasing the Lord of Glory.

All are welcome to these meetings.

“Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints,” Jude 1:3.


Joel Beeke preaches for and publicly seeks closer links with sodomy-endorsing Dutch denomination!

beekeHis departure cannot get much worse and leaves his supporters with a stark choice.
How long are some ministers going to continue attempting to whitewash this man?
God’s warning stands sure: “Behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out,” Numbers 32:23.

Most of our readers should be aware of the controversy surrounding Dr Joel Beeke and his links with those whose standing should not be acceptable to the Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster. In the past he has shared platforms with pro-sodomite speakers and sold books extolling the sodomite life-style. This can be checked out in Pastor Ralph Ovadal’s article: “The Downward Spiral of Dr. Joel Beeke’s Ministries Continues”.

However, as is the inevitable outcome of compromise, he has gone even further. On a preaching visit to Holland, he preached in pulpits which are occupied by sodomite-supporting ministers. But, not content with such a violation of God’s Word, Dr Beeke used the occasion to express a desire for his church, Heritage Netherlands Reformed Congregation, to have formal links with the Restored Reformed Church denomination which has endorsed the dreadful doctrine that a sodomite can be a true believer and even a minister of the Lord Jesus Christ. Read more

Private Interpretation Forbidden

The enigma code machine

“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation,” 2 Peter 1:20.

Many would challenge Peter’s assertion, though perhaps they do so without realising the significance of their actions. I say this in order to ameliorate their error because I do feel many are unaware that they are engaged in that which Peter here forbids.

Many believe that we must come to the Bible and “interpret” what it is God says! Now the word “interpretation” means “unloosing”. It is the process of “untying a knot”. That suggests that God has given us a “tangled skein” rather than a clear revelation!

It is what the combatants in the Second World War on both sides were busily engaged in. Most famously, the German military developed, after the First World War, that which was called “The Enigma Code.” It was a complex system of encoding its military communications, thus concealing them from their enemies. However, the Polish Cipher Bureau broke the code in the 1930s. Of course, the Germans were ever improving their code and so there was an ongoing battle of wits which I think we can say the Allies won, for during the latter part of World War II, the British knew much of what it was the Germans were saying and planning.

The USA likewise had broken the Japanese system of codes and were thus in possession of much of the communications coming out of Japan.

That is what interpretation means. Read more….

A backdrop which tells a sad story

arelene_foster_pubI was sent some pictures which allegedly appeared on the ‘Facebook’ page of the DUP leader, Mrs Arlene Foster.

Apparently, Enniskillen DUP held a breakfast meeting at the Horseshoe Bar and Saddlers Restaurant, one of the oldest public houses in Enniskillen.

For such a venue to be acceptable to the members of the DUP indicates a grave departure from the Party’s founding principles and practices.

There was a time when such a venue would never have been dreamed of and I am inclined to believe that it would still be the case for many local branches. Read more

The war that God provoked

roman_soldier“And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel” Genesis 3:15.

What a wonderful gospel text this is.

It is the first gospel sermon and it was preached by the Lord Himself.

The mercy of the Lord is seen in how quickly the Lord utters this word of grace after the sin of Adam and Eve has been committed. Notice the words were directed against the devil. His rejoicing over his conquest of Adam and Eve was short lived. This word from the Lord ended such rejoicing the devil may have been deceived into engaging in. The pleasures of sin are but for a season says Paul when referring to Moses’ decision to reject the throne of Egypt. “Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season,” Hebrews 11:25.

For Adam and Eve the words of God were welcome. There is promised to them victory over the one whose evil has plighted and destroyed their world. They would not have to live in subjection to him.

These words indicate that God is going to start a war between the devil and all believers and that for all of time. Read more

A most abominable archbishop

Justin WelbyIn his response to the admission by the Bishop of Grantham, Nicholas Chamberlain, that he is in a sodomite relationship, the Belfast Newsletter of 5th September 2016, reports that Rev Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, said: “I am and have been fully aware of Bishop Nick’s long-term, committed relationship.” He added: “He lives within the bishops’ guidelines and his sexuality is completely irrelevant to his office.”

This is one of the most wicked statements I have ever heard coming from the increasingly corrupt Archbishop of Canterbury’s office.

1. He states that he has been “fully aware of Bishop Nick’s long-term, committed relationship.”

Since nothing has been done to deal with this shameful defiance of G od’s Word, we can only surmise that Welby approves of such wickedness. Read more

Beeke Backtracking!!!

refo500nalaunch

Dr. Beeke at the launch of Refo500 North America

Not for the first time Dr Joel Beeke has been found wanting when it comes to honesty!
Recently, Pastor Ralph Ovadal published an article on his site, “The Downward Spiral of Dr. Joel Beeke’s Ministries Continues.” Click here to read the article.

That article contains the following statement:

Dr. Joel Beeke and Refo500 Together again, or more accurately, the illicit affair continues…it was recently brought to our attention that Dr. Beeke has not even ceased speaking at Refo500 events, as evidenced by the fact that he is a featured speaker at a Refo500 conference in the Netherlands scheduled for August 31—September 2, 2016. This Refo500 event is being held at the Theological University Apeldoorn where Dr. Herman Selderhuis is Professor of Church History and Church Polity.” Read more

The Folly of Unbelief

kilskeeryfpc“And David said in his heart, I shall now perish one day by the hand of Saul: there is nothing better for me than that I should speedily escape into the land of the Philistines; and Saul shall despair of me, to seek me any more in any coast of Israel: so shall I escape out of his hand,” 1 Samuel 27:1.

Based on a message preached at a special Saturday morning season of prayer attended by teachers, pupils, parents, Management Committee members and supporters of Kilskeery Independent Christian School, at the commencement of its 38th year.

The life of David provides us with many lessons for our pilgrimage here on earth. The trials and afflictions he endured present to us a true representation of what it is the Church of Christ may expect to encounter as it journeys to the “land that is fairer than day.”

As our school launches into its 38th year, we may take instruction, warnings and encouragement from this passage. Read more Listen using the player below or this link.

Job’s Christ

“For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: and though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me,” Job 19:25-27.

(Based upon a sermon preached by Rev Ivan Foster in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church on September 4th, 1994)

Knowing that such is the greatness of this text that no sermon of mine could do it justice, I feel I must return to it this Sabbath morning for one more look at its glorious message. I would like to highlight truths that I did not touch upon in our last study.

Job had little hope of ever seeing a restoration of that lost in his trial and little hope of ever being vindicated before his friends in his lifetime. But he did have a firm assurance of seeing just such a vindication one day. To that day he appeals in this great outburst of faith. I wish to look at these words and see Job’s Christ. Read more

Editor’s correspondence with ‘Father’ Patrick McCafferty

Pastor James McConnell and the RC priest Patrick McCafferty with whom he is most friendly

Pastor James McConnell and the RC priest Patrick McCafferty with whom he is most friendly

Back in 2002, I entered into a correspondence in the pages of “The Burning Bush” with a Roman Catholic priest from Belfast. The correspondence arose after I wrote a letter in reply to an article by the priest in “The Belfast Telegraph” of August 24th, 2002.

I was grieved at such a platform being given to the errors and deceptions of Rome and commented on the priest’s article in a letter to “The Belfast Telegraph.”

It will be noted how our two replies to the priest were edited by the ‘Letters Editor’ of “The Belfast Telegraph” before they quickly closed the exchange after two exchanges.

The Word of God was not liked by that ecumenical newspaper back then and it is still the case. Every effort was made to shield and protect the priest of Rome from the rebuke of God’s Word.

We are republishing the correspondence, which continued for eight exchanges, and appeared in “The Burning Bush” from October 2002 until May 2003, because of the publicity given to the ‘warm relationship’ that was manifested between this priest and Pastor James McConnell during the recent trial occasioned by Pastor McConnell’s pulpit statements about Islam. Pastor McConnell asked ‘Father’ Patrick McCafferty to speak on his behalf during the trial.

All this “ecumenical camaraderie” between the pastor and the priest may appear to some to give endorsement of the teachings of Rome and it is for this reason we highlight again the errors this priest, like all Roman Catholic clerics, propagates.

Needless to say, it also highlights the folly of James McConnell!

Read Part 9 of the exchange here.

The True Nonconformist Christian

bible_image“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God,” Romans 12:1-2.
The word “therefore” leads us to the start of the practical section of the epistle, that of applying the truths Paul has set forth in chapters 1-11.

How practical and useful the gospel is! It is that heavenly ointment whereby the wounds and bruises of sin are mollified. (Isaiah 1:6.) Unlike the ointments compounded by men which are very limited in their applications, serving only to address one or maybe two ailments, the gospel ointment is universal. It treats all of man’s ills and that most successfully. So said Isaiah the prophet and Peter the apostle. “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed,” Isaiah 53:5 “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed,” 1 Peter 2:24. Healing from our sins comes through Christ the Ointment of Heaven.

The first application of the truths that Paul has set down in the previous eleven chapters is found in the exhortation, “Present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” Read more…listen below…or at this link.

Rev Ivan Foster’s letter to the Editor of the “Belfast Newsletter” in answer to the latest from Dublin critic

What follows is the latest in an exchange of letters between Rev. Foster and John McFarland Campbell from Dublin in the columns of the Belfast Newsletter.

Mr Ivan Foster (Aug 11) informs us that he has quoted from a version of the Articles of Religion as on the Church Society website.

It is clearly stated there, that this version “is provided solely for the purpose of making the Articles more easily understood. The standing or authority of the Articles as set out in the Book of Common Prayer is in no way to be interpreted as diminished or undermined.”Read more

The Downward Spiral of Dr. Joel Beeke’s Ministries Continues

We wish to highlight Dr Beeke’s attitude to sodomy and show that our objections to Dr Beeke’s ministry started long before his production of the “Beeke Bible” and involves other very serious issues indeed by remounting this article!

Ivan Foster replies to Dublin Critic.

ThebelfastnewsletterIt purports to be a reply to a letter by Rev Foster in response to criticism from a Roman Catholic with regards to his article on IRA man Joe McCann.

Letter from Mr. John McFarland Campbell of Dublin.

The Rev Ivan Foster (August 4) is quick to accuse Mr McEvoy of using weasel words.
But the Reverend gentleman should be careful with his own pronouncements lest he be found to be using weasel words himself. Read more

FAITHFUL to the end

bible_image“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD,” Joshua 24:15.

Based on two sermons preached by Rev Ivan Foster in Gilford Free Presbyterian Church on Lord’s Day, August 7th, 2016.

The final days of Joshua present a model for us all to note and heed. It is to be noticed that verse 29 tells us that the events recorded in this chapter are followed by the death of the great man of God. “And it came to pass after these things, that Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, being an hundred and ten years old.” It is clear that to the end, Joshua was faithful to the Lord and was most anxious to promote faithfulness amongst the people of God by tackling head on the issues that were threatening Israel’s spiritual well-being and future.

What a perfect paragon the man is for us all, especially the servants of God. I have lived with the words of old Pastor J Kyle Paisley, spoken to me just after I started my studies in the Free Church: “It is not how you start that counts but how you finish!” Joshua finished well. Read more

Local outreach by Kilskeery FPC Youth Fellowship

Kilskeery_YPF_outreach1The young people of Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church have commenced a Saturday outreach in the villages around the area during the month of August.

On Saturday 6th, they visited houses in Trillick where two open-airs took place and they held another in their own little village of Kilskeery.

A text number was included in the literature urging people to use it to request further literature or the CD of a gospel sermon.

We would ask friends to pray for the word preached and the literature distributed that the Lord might bless His Word to every heart. Read more

The spiritual ’Zika Virus’ plaguing our society

R_DavidsonThere is a truth in God’s Word which aptly sums up the underlying agenda of those who belong to the ‘world of perversion’, represented by the various sodomite groups.

It is found in Isaiah 5:20-21. “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!”

Sodomites would have us believe that darkness is light; evil is good, bitter is sweet and vice versa!!

The deadly Zika Virus is spread by the smallest of bites but what havoc and grief comes of it! So it is with the sin of sodomy. It has been labelled as a most innocuous lifestyle which if accepted will bring benefits to society. It has corrupted the word ‘gay’ perverting that which used to mean joyful into a euphemism for all that is vile and offensive!

From tiny beginnings it has spread until the rights and freedoms of the God-fearing are largely eroded and denied in our land. It has become a crime to call sodomy what it is – a devilish perversion that will corrupt the minds and bodies of those who embrace it and damn their souls in everlasting hell! Read more

The DUP and its changed stance on sodomy

DUP_Lord_MayorIn an article dated Saturday 05 January 2013, the “Belfast Newsletter” disclosed that back in 1982 the DUP was furious at the prospects of gay law reforms.

The article quoted a DUP submission to the British Government in April of that year.
The article stated: “The DUP’s unanimous view that homosexuality should remain a serious criminal offence in Northern Ireland in 1982 is forcefully expressed in a newly-released Cabinet paper document.

In a submission to the Government, dated April 30 of that year, the party articulates fierce and detailed opposition to plans to legalise homosexuality, which the DUP paper links to paedophilia. Read more

Church of Ireland appoints a Roman Catholic priest as a Canon in St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast

ST_AnnesThe announcement of the appointment of a Roman Catholic priest as a “canon” at St Anne’s Church of Ireland Cathedral, Belfast, is presented in a article in the “Belfast Telegraph”, (29/7/16) as a wonderful story of ‘sweetness and light’.

What is not referred to is the utter repudiation of the Protestant position of the Church of Ireland.

The Church of Ireland is part of that Anglican Communion which was born at the time of the English Reformation of the 16th century. Read more

Back in 2002, I entered into a correspondence in the pages of “The Burning Bush” with a Roman Catholic priest from Belfast. The correspondence arose after I wrote a letter in reply to an article by the priest in “The Belfast Telegraph” of August 24th, 2002.

I was grieved at such a platform being given to the errors and deceptions of Rome and commented on the priest’s article in a letter to “The Belfast Telegraph.”

It will be noted how our two replies to the priest were edited by the ‘Letters Editor’ of “The Belfast Telegraph” before they quickly closed the exchange after two exchanges.

The Word of God was not liked by that ecumenical newspaper back then and it is still the case. Every effort was made to shield and protect the priest of Rome from the rebuke of God’s Word.

We are republishing the correspondence, which continued for eight exchanges, and appeared in “The Burning Bush” from October 2002 until May 2003, because of the publicity given to the ‘warm relationship’ that was manifested between this priest and Pastor James McConnell during the recent trial occasioned by Pastor McConnell’s pulpit statements about Islam. Pastor McConnell asked ‘Father’ Patrick McCafferty to speak on his behalf during the trial.

All this “ecumenical camaraderie” between the pastor and the priest may appear to some to give endorsement of the teachings of Rome and it is for this reason we highlight again the errors this priest, like all Roman Catholic clerics, propagates.

Needless to say, it also highlights the folly of James McConnell!

Read Part 8 of the exchange here.
