A time to be remembered

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.

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

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

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!

Another letter challenging Ivan Foster’s article on Joe McCann

ThebelfastnewsletterThis also appeared in the “Belfast Newsletter.” Below is the letter and Rev. Foster’s reply.

I feel compelled to address some of the falsehoods in Rev Ivan Foster’s lengthy letter (July 27).

1. The Rev talks about Roman Catholics – the term Roman used as a derogatory term by some unionists to describe their Catholic neighbours, most of who, including myself, have never been to Rome. Protestants in days gone bye would not darken the door of a chapel. Thankfully that has changed and visa versa.

2. What Rev Foster do you describe as Roman Catholic terrorism? Let me knowRead more

Newspaper correspondent takes issue with Rev. Foster’s words about IRA man Joe McCann

ThebelfastnewsletterThe following letter appeared in “The Belfast Newsletter” on July 25th.

I felt that I had to answer it because of its reiteration of the lies by which the IRA sought to justify its campaign of murder and terror.

I give first the letter from a “Mr Paul Shore” of Dublin and then my reply which has been submitted to the Editor of “The Belfast Newsletter”.

I just feel moved to write a few lines in response to Ivan Foster’s short piece on his memories of the death of Joe McCann (July 23).

He opines that Mr McCann chose “the gun instead of Christ” and seems to feel elevated enough to pass judgement on the aforementioned’s eternal soul.

As a native of Ulster, I couldn’t help but recall a dim memory of Mr Foster sporting a red beret as a founding member of ‘Ulster Resistance’ which, if my memory serves me well, had no qualms in collaborating with loyalist murder gangs in procuring arms and threatening violence….Read more

Doing what angels are not allowed to do

bible_imageActs 5:19-20

A message preached in Kilskeery FPC, 1st June 1986 by Rev. Ivan Foster

The sect of the Sadducees correspond with those today who say that everyone has a right to speak and do as they wish!

This apparently liberal attitude took on its true face when they encountered the preacher of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Then they became very illiberal!

In the passage before us they are filled with indignation and imprison ALL the apostles for doing that which should fill all men with joy and gratitude. The apostles’ crimes are listed in verses 12, 14-16.

“And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon’s porch. . . . .And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.) Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them. There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.”

This clearly gives us the pedigree of the Sadducees. They were the devil’s offspring!

I wept over IRA death, says Paisley associate

Northern Ireland daily newspaper features story of 1966 imprisonment of 3 Free Presbyterian ministers

By Sam McBride

Joe_McCannA former DUP firebrand Assemblyman and Free Presbyterian minister has told how he wept when he heard that an IRA man had been shot dead by a paratrooper.

Writing in today’s News Letter, the Rev Ivan Foster recounts how when he was jailed with Ian Paisley half a century ago he struck up an unlikely relationship with Official IRA man Joe McCann.

The Rev Foster – who was seen as one of the most uncompromising DUP members and who at one point in the 1980s was the Fermanagh commander of the quasi-military Third Force – said that he had explained his faith to the young IRA man and that they had discussed their religious views while working in the Crumlin Road Jail.

The Rev Foster, who represented the area in Stormont during the 1980s, said that the Falls Road-born paramilitary had been a “dedicated IRA man”.

Recalling the moment when he heard of the 24-year-old’s death, the Rev Foster said: “I freely admit my heart was filled with grief and I shed tears over the sad fate of that young man.”

The Rev Foster – who in 2007 used his pulpit to denounce Dr Paisley’s moves towards power-sharing with Sinn Fein – also said that the period around their jailing had been pivotal to the growth of the Free Presbyterian Church.

Joe McCann, IRA gunman, and his three months under the gospel

mccann_2by Rev Ivan Foster

The death of IRA man, Joe McCann, is once again in the news. Attempts are being made to put on trial those soldiers who were involved in the firefight when Joe McCann was shot by paratroopers.

McCann (24) was commander of the Official IRA’s third Belfast battalion. In February 1972, McCann was involved in the attempted assassination of Ulster Unionist politician John Taylor. He was regarded by the security forces as a dangerous terrorist. McCann was shot by soldiers in disputed circumstances in Joy Street in the Markets area, close to his home, on April 15, 1972.

One of the men, Soldier C, is a grandfather from Hampshire, England, who served with distinction for 23 years. “How can this be justice?” he asked. “It is a disgrace. I was doing my duty in Northern Ireland, trying to protect the public and keep the peace. Now I am being thrown to the wolves.” Read more

A New British Prime Minister — “Same Old Same Old”

theresa-mayIn her first speech as Prime Minister, Mrs Theresa May gushed in her admiration of her predecessor, David Cameron following his political demise. Cameron wished to be remembered as one who promoted ‘same-sex marriage’. The ‘Telegraph’ reported the matter thus: “In a clear bid to define the legacy that he will leave behind him, he spoke of his pride at . . . . introducing gay marriage,” 13th July 2016.

What a shameful, wicked, God-defying, self-dictated political epitaph! The spirit of Cameron, very prevalent in British politics for a number of decades now, ever since openly sodomite politicians were considered suitable for high public office by the British voting public, is set to continue in Mrs Theresa May’s government.  Read more

A YOUNG Earth – An OLD Truth

ArkSome Comments on remarks on the Bible’s account of creation by deceived and deceitful Evolutionists

By Rev Ivan Foster

Recently, the opening of a “Noah’s Ark” theme park by Dr Ken Ham, founder of “Answers in Genesis” organisation, aroused the ire of evolutionists who so hate any setting forth of the Bible truth of a 6-day creation and a young earth view.

The following comments were published by The Telegraph of 8th July 2016.

“Nathaniel Jeanson is a Harvard-educated biologist. For the past year, he has been involved in a spectacular $100 million project, designed to educate and astonish the world.

His project, however, has left many scientists in despair. Read more

Securing the future by remembering the past, Part 2.

Psalm 78

(Preached in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church, Lord’s Day morning, 3rd July 2016.

In the first part of this message, preached three weeks ago, we sought to highlight how sinful it is to forget the mercy that the Lord has displayed toward us in His past dealings with us.
The main point I made then was:

I. THE TERRIBLE SIN OF FORGETTING THE LORD….

We take up the message again and wish you to observe that:

II. THE CHIEF EVIDENCE OF THIS SIN IS SEEN IN OUR HOMES.

The word ‘hide’, verse 4, means to ‘conceal, to cut off’, Exodus 9:15. What God did to Pharaoh, this we do to our children when we ‘cut off’ God’s truth from them.

1. Consider just what is the duty of fathers. This refers to natural fathers as well as the ‘fathers’ of the church, the elders. “Shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done,” verse 4. You must be well acquainted with such ‘wonderful works’ before you can teach them to your children.

A tribute to one of the many – an uncle we never met.

George_Foster_Lily_editedUncle George Forster (the spelling of the surname was changed for some unknown reason in the early part of the 20th century) was the fourth child of Leslie and Mary Jane Forster. He was born at the family farm at Ballymackilroy, Lisnaskea, Co. Fermanagh.
He joined the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers while underage. He served in Dublin during the 1916 Easter Rising before going to France.

He was killed in action at Savy Wood, close to the village of Savy which is a few miles from St Quentin, in Picardy, France.

A younger brother, my Uncle William, told me the story of how, when he was in training, having just joined the Royal Ulster Constabulary in 1922, he met a former British Army captain who had also joined. On learning my Uncle’s surname, he related how he had a sergeant served under him in France by that name. It turned out it was Uncle George. The captain was able to relate the circumstances in which Uncle George was killed. The captain was leading one half of a patrol with Uncle George leading the other on 1st April, 1917. Uncle George was going down one side of Savy Wood and the captain going down the other. They had nearly met up when a German shell killed Uncle George. Read more

Europe in Bible Prophecy

EU_flagThe subject of Europe is very prominent in the news at present and that interest has only increased not diminished since the outcome of the EU referendum has been decided.

We are constantly being told by all political leaders what this result means?, what is going to happen now? and where it will all lead? It seems that everyone has an opinion to give or a statement to make on the subject! All of which has only led to greater confusion, division and uncertainty.

But the question that should concern us as Bible believing Christians is – What saith the Scriptures? What does the Word of God have to say on the subject of the future of Europe? That should be our response to every situation and subject in life and our nation’s membership of the European Union should be no different. 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!

Some things to be considered regarding the recent decision by the United Kingdom to withdraw from the European Union.

brexitBy Rev Ivan Foster

I believe that the outcome of the referendum on the EU came as a surprise to many Christians, even though they had hoped for a vote to withdraw. The outcome was not that which was predicted by most newspaper opinion polls and that was not really surprising, given the campaign that the government, led by Mr Cameron, mounted in company with the Labour leader, Jeremy Corbin and those of that ilk.

The decision has brought a measure joy to earnest Christians who saw the miseries that links with the EU have brought about. Many of the immoral changes introduced into UK law had their source in the EU. The laws on sodomy, same-sex ‘marriages’ and abortion were all altered to suit the moral attitudes prevailing within the EU.

However, there are some simple truths which we must not lose sight of in the light of this momentous decision. Read more

‘Pharaoh’ – a foreshadowing of the Antichrist

That there have been men who in their lives foreshadowed the future Antichrist serves to remind us of a number of important truths.

1. The spirit of iniquity has been at work amongst men since the fall of Adam. The devil’s temptation of man was not a random event but rather the beginning, amongst men, of the devil’s plan to overthrow God!

2. Furthermore, these vile men were merely foreshadowings and not the substance which indicates the restraining power of God upon the devil at work. The devil would like to have made some of them his ultimate agents but was prevented from doing so by the restraining power of God.

3. Moreover, if such wicked men as Cain, Goliath, Judas, and many others were but foreshadowings of the Antichrist, then the final manifestation of wickedness incarnate will be most dreadful indeed.

As a volcano reveals its destructive heart by its occasional eruptions, even so the repeated emergence of evil men, whose ways and words have been a portent of that satanically-controlled being who will emerge to dominate the Roman world, shortly before the return of the Saviour, has been a revealing of the burning cauldron of degeneracy that has long been inhibited by the mighty power of God until it is God’s time to bring to pass “every purpose of the LORD,” Jeremiah 51:29. Read more

Securing the future by remembering the past, part 1.

Psalm 78

It is clearly stated here in this Psalm what the duty of fathers is regarding teaching children of the merciful dealings of God with them and their forbears.

“We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done,” verse 4.

The consequences of failure is clearly indicated here also. “And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God,” verse 8.

We must not just bear in mind God’s merciful dealings with His people in the past and the rich and blessed harvest that was the result, but we must also remember what disobedience and defiance of God by former generations brought upon them. See versus 18-33. Read more

The day when the tide of immigration will turn

A consideration of the prophecy of Zechariah, chapter 5, and its relevance to the referendum on UK membership of the EU.

“Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Whither do these bear the ephah? And he said unto me, To build it an house in the land of Shinar: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base,” Zechariah 5:10-11.

There is at work today throughout the earth, a spirit of iniquity and rebellion that will reach its fulness in the days just prior to the Saviour’s return. Read more

To what extent does the Free Presbyterian church owe its present prosperity to the events of 1966?

A-time-to-be-remembered-coverOn the 6th June 1966, a Free Presbyterian protest march of witness which had been given permission by the police to take place and its route approved, was attacked by Republican rioters in the Cromac Square area of Belfast. The route the parade followed was the main route into the centre of Belfast and there was no alternative route available.

Preparation

The rioters had prepared themselves for the ambush by collecting railway bolts from a section of a nearby railway which was being demolished and delivering them by lorry to side streets in the Cromac square area. Police were informed of these activities but took very little if any action.

Long before the witness march arrived in the Cromac Square area and before it could be seen, the Republicans had begun to attack the police.

The witness marchers had to walk through a lethal hail of stones, bottles, railway bolts and other deadly missiles. 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 6 of the exchange here.

Foreshadowing of the future – a warning for the EU

A message preached by Dr. John Douglas, in which he expounds the Bible’s teaching on the development of the kingdom of the Antichrist and the role that the European Union will play in that development.

We would ask our friends who do not share in our view of prophecy – premillennialism – to give serious consideration to this message.

The Return of Christ – Pre-millennial

dawnby Rev Ivan Foster

(This message was given at the first meeting of 2000 of the Sovereign Grace Advent Testimony in London.)

“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever” (Daniel 2:44).

When it comes to the study of prophecy, this subject is a very elementary one, yet it is a subject to which many give little thought. Many Christians have a general view of the return of Christ, that it is going to happen, but they are not well versed on what the Bible has to say about that glorious event. That ought not to be. It is a subject with which God’s people should be well acquainted.

It is clear from the Word of God that the Christians in the days of the apostles were very well taught about the return of Christ. Indeed, when Paul wrote to the Thessalonians, he said he needed hardly to write on this subject as they knew about it perfectly (1 Thessalonians 5:2). It could be thought that those early believers would have had to learn so many subjects; that they were to be taught in doctrine of which they never had the slightest knowledge before the gospel came to them. Paul would have had to deal with the doctrine of God, His Person, His power, the mystery of the Trinity, and the inspiration of God’s Word. Although there was so much to teach, the apostle found time to tell those early believers about the second coming of the Lord and of the end times. Many ministers today would speak as if Paul had so much else to proclaim, that teaching about the return of Christ and the doctrine of eschatology could be left to a later generation. Read more or listen using this link or the player below.

Digging wells for our children to drink from.

well_bucket(A message preached at a teachers’ day of prayer in Portadown FPC, May 14th, 2016, by Rev Ivan Foster.)

“And Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had digged in the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham: and he called their names after the names by which his father had called them,” Gen 26:18

This portion of God’s Word is illustrative of the ongoing struggle that each succeeding generation of believers must engage, in if they are to enjoy the benefits of the covenant of grace.

That which ensures that there is an ongoing struggle is the unchanging enmity of the enemies of God’s people. Conquered by one generation of believers, they will rise up to challenge the next. Isaac found this to be so. “The Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham”.

Here in Ulster, the establishing and successfully running of independent Christian schools is central to that ongoing struggle.

I wish to apply this portion of God’s Word to that aspect of God’s work in Ulster today. Read more

A word from prisoner number 1425

An article by Rev. Ivan Foster (Written for a ‘pre-digital’ edition of The Burning Bush shortly after a third spell in jail in April 1986)

Rev. Ivan Foster was arrested at his church in Kilskeery in Co. Tyrone on Monday 21 April (1986) and taken to Crumlin Road Jail to serve a sentence of 14 days for refusing to pay a fine imposed upon him for his part in a protest against the R.U.C. carrying out Dublin’s orders to ban the Protestant parade in Castlewellan last July (1985). With full remission of sentence, and, because the Prison does not have weekend releases, Mr. Foster was set free on Friday 25 April. Read more

The benefits of having the Bible

bible_image

“The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple,” Psalm 119:130.

As a church we revere the Bible. It is given a prominent place in our services and in our lives. We preach its doctrines and contend for its truths. To mark the fortieth year of our church we can think of no better memento to give to our children than a copy of the Bible.
The word BIBLE comes from a Greek word BIBLOS = The BOOK. This is the BOOK for us in Kilskeery. We hope it will become the BOOK of all the children and young people here tonight. Read moreor listen using the player below.

NEW BOOK: Encounters with Christ

Encounter_cover_croppedimage“Encounters with Christ”, by Ann Foster, is a Bible-based record of some notable miracles of healing wrought by the Saviour during His earthly ministry. He healed multitudes, giving sight to the blind, casting out devils, cleansing the lepers, causing the lame to walk, the deaf to hear, the maimed to be whole, the palsied to recover and imparting life to the dead. These miracles were always accompanied by earnest prayer, a consciousness of need and faith on the part of the one who sought healing. They also illustrate vital gospel truth. Sinners are spiritually blind, controlled by Satan, unclean, lame, maimed, paralysed and dead as a result of sin and they desperately need the spiritual healing and deliverance which Christ alone can give. They too must come with a deep consciousness of their sin, earnestly seeking salvation and believing that Christ alone can save.

The book also details some notable conversations with individuals. Again gospel truth is illustrated. In the Lord’s conversation with the woman of Samaria, He revealed to her the depth of her iniquity and His identity as the Messiah. The sinner must realise and acknowledge his sin in the eyes of a holy God and recognise Christ as God’s only anointed Saviour. In His conversation with Nicodemus, He stressed the necessity of the new birth even for a self- righteous sinner, spoke of His death on the cross, using the symbol of the uplifted serpent in the wilderness, to secure eternal life for His people.

However, not all who were healed were saved. Some, like Malchus, accepted healing for his severed ear, but rejected Christ’s message. Not all who talked with Christ, like the rich, young ruler, heeded His instruction to leave all and follow Him if he wished to obtain eternal life. Mercifully, Nicodemus was born again, despite all appearances to the contrary, for we find him at the cross with Joseph of Arimathea, carefully removing Christ’s body, wrapping it in spices and fine linen, laying it in the tomb and rolling the stone to the door.

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!
