The birth of Christ . . . WHEN and WHY?

The substance of a sermon preached on Lord’s Day 23rd December 2002, in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church by Rev. Ivan Foster.

This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief, 1 Timothy 1:15.

This is a timely topic since we are surrounded by the many evidences of the world’s celebration of the birth of Christ. It has to be said that many people have expressed reservations about the nature of the celebrations and whether they really have any relationship to the coming into the world of the Son of God. I suppose you do not have to search very far to see the reasons for such concerns. That the police and the various authorities, linked with safety on the roads, should be required to make special appeals at this time of year to try and curtail people from drinking to excess in celebration of Christmas, does raise the question of whether such activity is in keeping with a marking of the birth of the Redeemer of men from sin. Very obviously, it is not. Read more

Rick Warren – the Champion of Reunion with Rome

By Rev Ivan Foster

Good friends in Australia sent me a link to a video (watch it below) featuring Rick Warren pleading the cause of cooperation and unity with Popery.

As I watched the video I was carried back to the earlier days of Ecumenism when people like the late Dr Michael Ramsey, the Archbishop of Canterbury from 1961 until 1974, was one of the chief apostles of Unity with Rome. Rick Warren fills the shoes of Ramsey very well indeed. Indeed, this so-called “Evangelical Pastor” “out-Ramseys” Ramsey when it comes to promoting the cause of Rome.

He takes upon himself the task of defending Rome’s doctrines of Mariolatry and explaining away the differences that the Reformers highlighted and declared to be marks of a system of Antichrist.

The video, put out by the “Catholic News Service”, not surprisingly, has the Saddleback Church minister attempting to explain away Rome’s idolatrous system. He is clearly seen telling Protestants that they have it all wrong and then going on to claim that Rome and Protestantism hold the same views on the Trinity, the Bible, Salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ and he even defends and seeks to justify the use of prayers to the Virgin Mary and the saints! Read more

How God makes saints: The pope’s way and God’s way compared.

Dec1401a“And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins,” Ephesians 2:1.

On Lord’s Day, November 23rd, 2014, the Pope, as arrogant as any that ever went before him, despite the media’s depiction of him as a ‘humble man’, took upon himself the power to ‘make’ some new saints!

These are the words he employed during the ‘ceremony’.

“We declare and define Blesseds Giovanni Antonio Farina; Kuriakose Elias Chavara of the Holy Family; Ludovico da Casoria; Nicola da Longobardi; Eufrasia Eluvathingal of the Sacred Heart and Amato Ronconi to be Saints and we enrol them among the Saints, decreeing that they are to be venerated as such by the whole Church.”

Jerusalem in the news – Now and in the Future

By Rev Ivan Foster.

Jerusalem_Dome_of_the_rock_BW_14The first part of this message was preached in Bangor Free Presbyterian Church, Lord’s Day, 23rd November, in the evening meeting.

The Christian is blessed with a wonderful knowledge of the future, both that which is related to this earth and its affairs and that which is related to eternity.

We are required by the Author of this knowledge – the Lord Jesus Christ – to share it. That is why we preach the gospel and engage in many forms of missionary enterprises. In like fashion we should also engage in the propagation of prophetic truth.

Confusion

The devil desires to confound, corrupt and distort both aspects of God’s truth. He is the author of the many “alternative gospels” offered to men today. He is also the author of the confusion that surrounds prophecy.

Such is the confusion he has sown that many believers, including ministers, believe that it is a futile and foolish thing to study what the Bible has to say about prophecy. What folly!! Read more

Here we go again!! Another attack on God’s word.

about_bible_secrets_revealed-EAn American television channel which is also networked in the United Kingdom, H2, has announced that it will soon be showing a series of anti-Bible programmes in which “experts” will purport to “prove” that the Bible is full of contradictions, historical inaccuracies, frauds and many other forms of “mistakes’!

Central to the philosophy of the programme makers will be a rejection of the virgin birth of Christ and, of course, the inspiration and inerrancy of the Word of God.

The advert for the programme is vexing and disconcerting enough, so it can be imagined just what the series of programmes will do!

Remember the roaring of Goliath? “And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span. . . . . And he stood and cried unto the armies of Israel, and said unto them, Why are ye come out to set your battle in array? am not I a Philistine, and ye servants to Saul? choose you a man for you, and let him come down to me. . . . . And the Philistine said, I defy the armies of Israel this day; give me a man, that we may fight together. . . . .” 1 Samuel 17:4, 8, 10.

He was big He was impressive and the army of Israel were intimidated by his size and his boastful arrogance. But not so David, and the rest is history!

Let every child of God bear in mind some simple facts regarding the Bible and the history of its enemies. Read the rest of the article

A vindication of sorts – 27 years on!!!

A29FKH Single remembrance day poppy against white backgroundThe following article on the Enniskillen bombing by the IRA 27 years ago appeared in this week’s “Impartial Reporter”, the local newspaper for the Fermanagh, South Tyrone area.

I have highlighted a very significant section in the middle of the article.

I too remember the Enniskillen bombing very vividly because of those I knew who were murdered and maimed in that wicked, cowardly act by the IRA, the lies and deception of church and state and also because it happened on my 44th birthday!

The significance of the highlighted section is that it goes a little way to vindicating me and the allegations I made, following the bombing, about the ‘powers that be’ seeking to placate Irish Nationalism and the Roman Catholic Church and hide from the public the involvement of elements within the Roman Catholic church in Enniskillen in the steps taken to set up the bomb in one of their properties.

I was most surprised to read in Mr McDaniel’s comments a reference to a statement I issued to his newspaper at the time, for it is not the norm for newspaper editors to acknowledge they might have got it wrong – especially after 27 years.

For that I thank him.

In answer to the question he poses in the title of his article: Yes, we will get answers. When? In that day when “every one of us shall give account of himself to God,” Romans 14:12.

You can read the account I gave of the “Poppy Day Massacre” at the time, using the link below. I have highlighted in it the letter, referred to by Mr McDaniels, that I sent to “The Impartial Reporter” but which he chose not to publish. Read more

Update from Pilgrims Covenant Church

ovadal_reportBelow is a link to the latest report from a brother in Christ, Pastor Ralph Ovadal of Pilgrims Covenant Church, Monroe, Wisconsin, USA, with whom we have had fellowship both in his church and by participating on occasions in his broadcasts.

It is clear that he and his people have a deep desire to share the gospel and also to earnestly contend for the faith against the ever deepening, ever widening departure from the simple path of obedience to God’s Word especially manifested today in the antics of new evangelicalism and the bewildering meanders of the modernising movements flooding Christendom.

I would request prayer for him and his people as they continue to serve the Lord.
Should anyone wish to support this outreach, you may do so by writing to:

“Replacement Theology”: Does God Mean What He Says?

EPSON MFP imageBy Stephen A Toms, Secretary: Sovereign Grace Advent Testimony
Printed copies of this article may be purchased online here

It appears that the philosophy of ‘Replacement Theology’ is becoming more commonly believed amongst professing Christians and, consequently, we consider it right to say something about the issue.

Replacement Theology is the strange notion that the Church (made up of Jews and Gentiles) has replaced national Israel, so that the covenant promises made by God to His ancient people are not really meant for them at all, but were intended for others. Hence, the word ‘replacement.’ In a peculiar way and with great inconsistency, it is thought that the Church replaces the nation in order to receive the promised blessings, but the curses are left for the Jewish people. Read more

The Glory Days of Ian Paisley

Dr. Ian Paisley

Dr. Ian Paisley

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children, Hosea 4:6.

I thought of Ian Paisley or ‘Doc’ as many of us affectionately called him who knew him in the 60s and 70s, when I recently read the words of the above verse during the course of my daily Bible reading, as I followed R. Murray McCheyne’s Bible reading calendar. Read more

Proposed Changes to Abortion Law in Northern Ireland

David_FordThe case being made for changes to the law regarding abortion in Northern Ireland that David Ford, Justice Minister in the Stormont power-sharing government and leader of the Alliance Party is pushing, is not new.

The Justice Department is asking for the views of the public on whether abortion should be allowed for women carrying children which would die due to defects anyway, and also it is being asked whether abortions should be available to those who conceived due to incest or rape.

It should be remembered that the decision to abort a baby which is alleged to be suffering from defects, from which it will die after its birth, rests upon the views of doctors, based upon their interpreting of medical evidence supplied by scans etc.

That amounts to the doctors supplanting the role of God! Read more

Godless Federations

(A message preached at the Sovereign Grace Advent Testimony evening meeting held in New Life Presbyterian Church hall (kindly granted) in West Kilburn, London, on Friday 26th September, 2014, by Rev Ivan Foster)

“Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: the tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah,” Psalm 83:1-8.

The anti-Israel sentiments expressed here in this psalm have long been desired and if anything are stronger today than ever before. How precise and detailed is the information here given on this federation of nations. Prophecy is history written before the event. This amalgam of haters of Israel will indeed come together in their efforts to “cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance” just prior to our Saviour’s return. Read more

The Apostasy

A message preached at the Sovereign Grace Advent Testimony afternoon meeting held in New Life Presbyterian Church hall (kindly granted) in West Kilburn, London, on Friday 26th September, 2014, by Rev Ivan Foster.

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God,” 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4. Read more

Life-long friend says Paisley had doubts about going into Government

impartial_Sept2014(Impartial Reporter, 21st September 2014.)

A life-long friend of Ian Paisley has claimed the former leader of the Democratic Unionist Party who died last week “had doubts” about going into government with Sinn Fein. The 88 year old, one of Northern Ireland’s most prominent and polarising political figures of the last 50 years, died last week following a long period of ill health.

There has been much said in recent days about Dr. Paisley’s life such as his decision to sit down with his former enemy Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams and agree to work together in a power-sharing executive following years of protests and hostility.

New Church Hall Opened at Kilskeery, 17th August 1974

Report from September ‘74 “Revivalist”

The new Free Presbyterian Hall at Kilskeery, to which there was strong objection at the planning stage has been opened. The ceremony was performed by Dr. Ian Paisley, MP, Moderator of the Free Presbyterian Church, in the presence of several hundred people from many parts of Fermanagh and Tyrone and farther afield.

About half-a-dozen RUC men were on duty controlling traffic and a UDR patrol was in Kilskeery village. The new building, costing approximately £4,000, was built almost entirely by voluntary effort on the site given by Mr. Robert Edwards. It was designed, by Mr. Ivan Morrison, a committee member of Bethel Free Presbyterian, Church, Enniskillen. Read more….

Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster statement on the death of Dr. Ian R. K. Paisley

It is with deep sadness and regret that we have learned of the passing of Dr. Paisley, retired minister of our denomination and former moderator of the General Presbytery of the Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster. Read more

Free Presbyterian Church Early History Video

Below is a video presentation of the history of the begining of the Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster. Under God, Dr. Paisley played a leading role in these events.

Dr Ian Paisley has passed away

Dr. Paisley 2004“The death of Dr Ian Paisley has just been announced by His wife, Eileen.

In a statement, carried on the BBC Northern Ireland news site, Baroness Paisley said her “beloved husband” had “entered his eternal rest” on Friday morning. “Although ours is the grand hope of reunion, naturally as a family we are heartbroken,” she said. “We loved him and he adored us, and our earthly lives are forever changed. “Baroness Paisley said that his funeral would be private.

The memories of the man that I would wish to retain and cherish are those of his days as a mighty preacher when it was my privilege to sit under his ministry in gospel missions in tents and halls from one end of Northern Ireland to the other.

Those were days of conversions, of God’s people separating from the apostasy of the ecumenical churches and an exposing of the Romeward trend. Those days will receive scant mention in the profiles of Dr Paisley which will feature prominently in the Northern Ireland news media over the next few days.

But they will be the memories cherished by a very large, though diminishing, number of people in Ulster who supported and prayed for Dr Paisley over the years.”

To the family we offer our sincere condolences at this time.

For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens, 2 Corinthians 5:1.

Ivan Foster.

Memories of a protest 45 years ago

img019 - Version 2Some little time ago, a sister in Christ in the United States sent me a link to a recording on SermonAudio of a report I gave in Martyrs Memorial Free Presbyterian Church of my experiences during a protest in St Paul’s Cathedral, London, when Cardinal Heenan, head of the Roman Catholic church in England, became the first Roman Catholic prelate to preach in the cathedral.

It stirred memories as I listened to that recording, taking me back, as it did, some 45 years.

Dr Paisley was leading the protest and also the meeting in the Martyrs where various ministers gave a report of the protest. Sadly, only my report appears on the SermonAudio site.
As a result of the protest, I was taken to court under a very old ecclesiastical law, and fined. At least that is what I think happened to me. It is so long ago and court appearances for Free Presbyterians were so common back then, that I have no clear recollection of the outcome of the court proceedings. One thing I am sure of, the magistrate did not give me a medal!! Read more

A decisive verse in the “Head Covering” controversy

“But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered,” 1 Corinthians 11:5-6.

There are many good articles on the issue of “Head Covering”, one of which may be read here.

What we wish to do is really just an exercise in simple logic and the understanding of God’s Word in a common sense manner. What Paul says here in verse 6 can have only one meaning. Read more

A Two-Fold Warning on “The Ice Bucket Challenge”.

1. It has been acknowledged by the charities benefiting from donations raised via the “The Ice Bucket Challenge” that Both ALS, and in the UK, MND, which are sister organisations aiming to raise awareness of the neurodegenerative disease, known as Motor Neurone Disease in the UK, support the legal use of research that uses embryonic stem cells, while recognising the “significant moral, ethical and religious concerns” that the research methods raise.

That being so, Bible Christians should surely avoid engagement in this exercise.

2. It has become a vain exercise in self promotion and seen to be such by many commentators.

Christian, please remember the words of the Lord Jesus. “Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: that thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly,” Matthew 6:1-4.

Surely it can be seen that the whole “The Ice Bucket Challenge” has become an exercise which flies in the face of these words.

Integrated Education – An unscriptural choice!

by Rev Brian McClung

Much comment has been made in many circles, in recent days, on the subject of Integrated Education. There is presently a growing lobby who desire this form of education and are becoming ever more public and vocal in their demands concerning it. An editorial in the Belfast Telegraph called for this form of education to be the mainstream. The First Minister Peter Robinson has also voiced his support for it.

Integrated Education is a choice that every evangelical Christian should recoil away instantly from. This is easily seen when those who support and desire this form of education are considered….Read more.

Criminal Justice Bill Consultation

The Justice Committee, Northern Ireland Assembly, Stormont, Belfast.

Mr Jim Wells, a brother in Christ and member of the Northern Ireland Assembly, has put forward a proposed amendment to the Criminal Justice Bill in July 2014.

Abortion in Northern Ireland is a criminal offence, and Mr Wells’ proposed amendment makes clear that a defence to the criminal charge of abortion would not be available to anyone who performed an abortion for fee or reward at a private medical centre.

In Northern Ireland, expectant mothers receive world-class medical care in our hospitals because both the unborn child and mother are treated as patients.

The purpose of this amendment is to ensure that private clinics, such as the Marie Stopes Centre which opened its doors in Belfast in October 2012, cannot legally carry out abortions in Northern Ireland.

Any proposed amendment to the Criminal Justice Bill requires full consultation to ensure all viewpoints are aired and considered. Therefore, the Justice Committee is currently running a public consultation, seeking the public’s views and comments on the proposed amendment to the Criminal Justice Bill.

We urge you to please sign our petition and thus state your support for the Mr Wells’ proposed amendment and register your opposition to the Marie Stopes Centre remaining open in Belfast. We ask you to promote this public consultation and the need for submissions amongst your friends and encourage them to support Mr Wells’ proposed amendment.

Recommended reading: Slaughter of the innocent taking place in Ulster today

Please note the following:

  • A petition form is available here for anyone who wishes to download it and print it out to use to collect signatures within their church. We would especially urge Free Presbyterians to make use this form.
  • All petition forms have to be with the clerk of the Justice Committee by Friday 12th September.
  • Send petitions to: The Justice Committee Clerk, Room 242, Parliament Buildings, Ballymiscaw, Stormont, Belfast, BT4 3XX

Fortieth Anniversary of Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church first building.

On Sunday August 17th, 2014, the Kilskeery congregation celebrated the fortieth anniversary of the opening of the first building on the site. Below are pictures from the occasion and recordings of the messages preached by the retired minister of the congregation, Rev. Ivan Foster.

The character God requires in a Christian teacher

A lecture given by Rev. Foster at the Free Presbyterian Christian Education Seminar, August 13th, 2014.

“Jehoash did that which was right in the sight of the LORD all his days wherein Jehoiada the priest instructed him,” II Kings 12:2. Holiness is the result of instruction in righteousness. Man is, by nature, utterly void of all knowledge of holiness and how it is to be attained. Not only is he in utter ignorance of holiness, but he hates instruction in holiness. “Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee,” Psalms 50:17. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction,” Proverbs 1:7. Read moreor listen to the lecture using the player below.

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

worldwar1sommeUncle George 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 was a few miles from St Quentin, in Picardy. Read more
