Runaways, Rebels, Redemption and Revival blessing

A new book by Mrs. Ann Foster

From the introduction:

Why is it that men are so prone to run away from God?

One has only to read the Bible to see the great and continual hostility of man to God and His Word. We see it over and over again in the history of the children of Israel.

They had witnessed the mighty works of God in Egypt, the ten dreadful plagues, only three of which affected the land of Goshen where Israel dwelt, and His ultimate deliverance of them from Egyptian bondage.

They had watched the miraculous dividing of the Red Sea, the walls of water providing protection from the pursuing armies of Pharaoh as they crossed over dry-shod. These same walls of water brought destruction to the chariots and death to the horsemen, foot soldiers and the proud king of Egypt as they were totally engulfed.

They were there when God came down on Mount Sinai with the glorious manifestations of His presence. They heard the thunder, saw the lightning and heard God’s voice speaking out of the fire. However, despite such a demonstration of God’s glory and power, they set up and worshipped the golden calf, while Moses was still in the mount receiving the tables of the law. Stephen, the first Christian martyr, accused the rebellious Israelites, under Moses’ leadership, of idolatry in these words: ‘Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them’ (Acts 7:43). They ate daily of the manna and drank water from the rock, yet they constantly murmured against God’s gracious and faithful provision.

Neither miracles of mercy nor terrible judgments prevailed to turn them from disobedience to God.

A new booklet in the series:


God’s Purpose for the BRITISH ISLES
By Rev. David McMillan

Price £1 (40p+postage)

Email Rev. Foster with your name and street address to order a copy.

God has a lot to say about the nations that were in the old Roman Empire; and in 2012 a series of meetings were held considering many such countries, so that particular thought should be given to what the Bible tells us of the future. This booklet has been added to that series of messages. The reason why the Lord has told us so much is because He would have us to understand His purpose for the earth.

The wounds and madness that Ecumenism inflicts

The following three articles from the ‘Belfast Newsletter’ website (Nov 7) highlights the terrible deceitfulness of Sinn Fein/IRA and its ungoing and unchanged murderous attitude toward the innocent whom it deems is worthy of slaughter.

It was engaged in a campaign of ‘genocide’ against the Protestant people in the border areas and elsewhere and honours still all those who engaged in that campaign of terror. The man guilty of the ‘Shankill Road Bombing’, in which ten people were killed, two of whom were children and one was an IRA bomber, was Sean Kelly. He will be canvassing for the Sinn Fein candidate in the forthcoming Westminster election. The SDLP will be supporting Sinn Fein’s candidate. Read more

Irish Presbyterian apostasy

The article below appeared in today’s (Nov. 6th, 2019) “Belfast Telegraph”. It clearly indicates the shameful departure that there is within the Presbyterian Church in Ireland when there are those who are prepared to side publicly with a sodomite ‘elder’ who was disciplined for being in a ‘sodomite marriage’!!!!

It is to be noted that the objection of the sodomite and in which he was supported by these protesters, was against the ‘policy’ of his denomination.
There is no recognition that it is God’s Word that denounces sodomy and declares it to be an ‘abomination’. “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination,” Leviticus 18:22. Read more

Report of a visit to Canada and the USA by Rev. Ivan Foster just 47 years ago.

He was part of a delegation of FP ministers who visited North America in October/November 1972. Rev James Beggs, Rev William Beattie and Rev S B Cooke were also part of the delegation.

Taken from “The Revivalist” report of the visit.

The invitation to join the deputation from the Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster in a visit to America and Canada was certainly a privilege. Nevertheless, because of the recent opening of our new church in Enniskillen I was loth to be absent from my pulpit when our congregation was making every effort to fill our new building. However, as I prayed about the matter I was reminded of some advice given by Jordan Khan, a faithful servant of the Lord, who preached some time ago in our churches. He had said that if ever we received an invitation to preach in Europe or U.S.A. we should accept it, for God had surely given the Free Presbyterian Church a message for the world. The more I thought about this, the more I felt convinced that I should go, even if it were not for the full four weeks. I was supported in this by my elders, so I gladly agreed to go for three weeks. Read more

Letter submitted to Belfast Telegraph about same-sex marriage billboards erected in Belfast

See the November 7th news report here.


It has been reported in your newspaper today that there are “Same-sex marriage billboards put up in Belfast.” 
In the article, Northern Ireland Humanists coordinator Boyd Sleator is quoted as saying: “LGBT people in Northern Ireland have suffered for too long under archaic laws influenced by religious groups which have prevented same-sex couples from being able to legally marry.”

His statement caused me to think that if he, as a Humanist is wrong in his rejection of Bible Christianity (and he is) then he will discover that eternity will bring even more immeasurable suffering under even more “archaic laws”, even the law of God, to those who reject God’s truth!

The Bible says of all who reject God’s Law and His order and purpose for humanity, that they shall suffer as did their ideological forebears in Sodom and Gomorrha! Jude verse 7 states: “Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”

The message of the Lord Jesus Christ is clear. “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him,” John 3:36. 

Time will declare which philosophy, the Christian’s or Mr Sleator’s,  is true. The putting up of any amount of billboards will not alter truth or annul God’s divine decree!

I dare call it murder

In 1984, there was an attempt to introduce the 1967 Abortion Act, then currently law in the rest of the UK, to Northern Ireland.

I introduced a motion in the Northern Ireland Assembly in Stormont, opposing its introduction.

What I said was valid then and valid still today. Indeed, given the recently imposed abortion legislation that Westminster has forced upon Northern Ireland whereby abortion right up until ‘the point of birth’ is now legal, it is even more relevant!

We wrote about the imposition of this abortion legislation in the article: The cruel and obscene wickedness about to be imposed upon Northern Ireland

We commend to you the 1984 article and encourage you to circulate it amongst friends.
