ALL CHRISTIANS TO ACTION STATIONS

Part 7: Remembering the words of the apostles about the latter-day apostasy

roman_soldier“These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage. But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; how that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit,” Jude 1:16-19.

Verses 16-17 of the epistle of Jude underscore for us yet again how events in the last days feature large in the Word of God.

In our last study, we considered the words of a man, the prophet Enoch, and what he had to say about the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Enoch’s ministry would have had the earliest generations of mankind sit under it, and that most likely included Adam!

Prayer Requested for New Nepal Constitution

Rev. & Mrs. Wesley Graham

Rev. & Mrs. Wesley Graham

At present the political parties in Nepal are debating a new constitution that includes anti-conversion laws and underscores decades-old religious tension. If ratified, the result could be a likely crackdown and severe persecution for dozens of Christian ministries serving there. It is feared that if this new constitution is adopted in its present draft form there could be great restriction on the freedom the Christians to share their faith with others.

The constitutional language in question states, “[…] any act which may be contrary to public health, public decency or morality or incitement to breach public peace or act to convert another person from one religion to another or any act or behaviour to undermine or jeopardize the religion of each other is not allowed and such act shall be punishable by law.”

The Nepalese government continues to seek input from its citizens before the Civic Relations and Constitution Recommendation Committee of the Constituent Assembly receives the final constitution draft on July 23. The government plans to finalize the constitution by mid-August. Violence erupted between police and protesters in southern Nepal when government officials held a public meeting to gain citizen input to the constitution, according to news reports from the region. The protesters threw chairs at the deputy prime minister.

This isolated country between India and China historically has been a Hindu nation, and most protesters are demanding a return to that status. Nepalese monarchs advocated Hinduism, and the people believed their monarchs were the reincarnation of Vishnu, a Hindu god.

Please pray that the government may adopt a constitution which allows Christians freedom to express and declare their faith

“The Frightening Prospect Facing the Cause of God in Ulster! ”

Jeremiah 12:7-11.

A sermon preached by Rev Ivan Foster in Newtownabbey FPC on Lord’s Day evening, 19th July, 2015.

Man is the same today as he was back in the times of the OT.

The Lord remains the same because, He is “infinite, eternal, and unchangeable, in His being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth. ”

The sin of men today therefore brings the same response from the Lord as ever it did.
The analysis of man’s condition and the only cure given by the Lord was accurate a thousand years ago and more and remains effective still.

That being so, we can scan the future in the Bible’s records of the past. What happened to Israel following its backsliding and sin will likewise happen to the converted Gentiles today.

It is for this reason that we can look at these verses and see what lies ahead of Ulster’s Christians if there is not a taking heed of the lessons laid down for us. We may say with Paul: “for our sakes, no doubt, this is written, ” 1 Corinthians 9:10.

The consequences of backsliding and defiance of God is most terrible indeed! Hear what God says. “I have forsaken mine house, I have left mine heritage, ” Jeremiah 12:7-8.

The wonderful promise of Hebrews 13:5 must never be abused. That is not a promise without conditions. Disobedience of God is not ignored by Him.

The true believer will never be so wholly forsaken of God as to lose his soul but sin will cost us the presence and blessing of God just as it cost David such. Psalm 51:11-12.

That is the inevitable cost of sin in this life! Ulster’s Christians are facing a future void of these joys and blessings if there is not a heeding of the decline taking place amongst us.

The Greek crisis in the light of prophecy

greek-flag-burning-1 (1)The Book of Daniel was, like all Scripture, given for our instruction and edification. “Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand,” Revelation 1:3. “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 Author of Daniel chapter 1 with its record of the stand taken by the young Hebrew captives against the attempts of the Babylonian king to have them conform to the ways of their captors, and of chapter 3, with its wonderful account of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego’s refusal to bow before the golden idol and their being cast into the fiery furnace, only to be miraculously preserved by the Lord, and chapter 5 with its rather chilling description of God’s mysterious written warning to Belshazzar which appeared on the wall of his palace during a wicked banquet, and chapter 6 where we have Daniel’s encounter with the lions in their den, is also the Author of chapters 7-8, 10-12 with their end-time prophecies. Read more

“ALL CHRISTIANS TO ACTION STATIONS!!”

roman_soldierAn outline study of Jude – an important little book for today.

By Rev Ivan Foster.

Part 6: Believers warned of the apostasy from the beginning

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

Enoch would have preached while Adam was still alive. Therefore he was a man who preached to the earliest generations of men. It is clear that the end-time apostasy occupied the thoughts of the earliest believers. That in itself should cause Christians today to place a higher emphasis upon the study of what the Bible has to say about the end-times and the development of the lawlessness which the Bible consistently testifies will manifest itself just before the Saviour’s return. Read more

Mohammedanism: What Is It?

by E J Poole-Connor

islamAlthough this was written about 50 years ago, the information supplied by Mr Poole-Connor is useful in view of the present situation in the world.

(Taken from the introduction to the article in the Watching & Waiting magazine of the Sovereign Grace Advent Testimony, 2002)

In a day when the Prime Minister, Mr David Cameron, is so foolish and ignorant of history (willingly or otherwise) as to say that “Islam is a religion of peace” (Daily Telegraph, 26th June 2015) the following article, though some 60 years old, will prove enlightening and helpful to believers today.

Islam has not changed. The cruelty of the ISIS organisation is not new. That will be made clear in this well documented article. Read more….

THE SAVIOUR PRAYING IN THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE

ancient olive tree in GethsemaneDid He show ‘unwillingness’ to go to the cross?

It is not uncommon for preachers to explain the words of the Saviour in the Garden of Gethsemane, quoted above, as the Saviour succumbing to a fear of the sufferings He would face on the cross and praying that He might be spared that suffering, though declaring His willingness to submit to it if it was His Father’s will.

Such a view has always been an offence to me, as I believe that it impugns my Saviour’s integrity, His love for His elect and His omniscience. Read more

Are Futurists pessimistic about revival in the last days??

sunsetIt is often felt, I know, that those of us who hold to what is called a ‘Futurist’ position on prophecy, that is, we believe that the Lord Jesus will return to this earth after the three and half years of the ‘Great Tribulation’ and the destruction of the Antichrist and the conversion of Israel, and then instigate His 1000-year reign on earth, are full of pessimism and unbelief regarding God’s ability to send revival to the overthrowing of the wicked trends so manifest today before our eyes.

Believing as we do that the prophecies of the Bible are to be understood literally, except where obviously they are figurative, we believe that the character of the last days will be exactly as the Lord Jesus has revealed both in His own words and those of the inspired prophets. Read more

‘THE CHRISTIAN AND MAKE-UP’ – What saith the Scriptures?

top-12-of-2012-make-up“In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness)with good works,” 1 Timothy 2:9-10.

“Likewise, ye wives, . . . Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; but let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price,” 1 Peter 3:1-4.

We must be careful of ‘change’! So say the Scriptures. “My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change,” Proverbs 24:21.
Man is given to change. He soon is wearied of routine, especially that instigated by the Lord. As Israel grew weary of manna, the provision of heaven, so man wearies even of the most blessed provisions and ordinances of God. Read more

“ALL CHRISTIANS TO ACTION STATIONS!!”

roman_soldierAn outline study of Jude – an important little book for today.

By Rev Ivan Foster.

Part 5 : Five telling metaphors of the apostate

“These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you,
feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever,”
Jude 1:12-13.

With what bold clarity and explicitness, Jude paints the picture of the apostates and their activities amongst the early church! These warnings are relevant still for these same creatures are at work today!
Of course, let it be noted, a warning is of little use when it is clouded by ambiguity and lacking in transparency. This is especially so when the matter about which the warning is made is of such a serious and solemn nature as the infiltration of the church by deceivers and agents of the devil.

Let preachers take note: Don’t be as “dumb dogs”, which “cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber,” Isaiah 56:10. Be as Paul’s trumpeter in 1 Corinthians 14:8, giving forth a clear, shrill sound that all will instantly recognise as an alarm “For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?”
Oh how clear was the witness of the Free Presbyterian Church in former times under the energetic and Holy Ghost enabled early ministry of Ian Paisley and fellow ministers!
May it be generally so again. Read more

A Cowardly Windbag Blows His Flute

gallery-sirjamespaulcoxThe Belfast Telegraph, of 6th June, 2015, reports: “World-renowned flautist Sir James Galway has launched a remarkable broadside on the late former First Minister Ian Paisley asking if he was “indirectly responsible for killing” by planting “thoughts of violence” in people’s minds during the Troubles.”

James Galway’s sole claim to fame is his ability to making pleasing sounds emitted from various forms of ‘tin whistles’, a skill which was nurtured while he was a member of a loyalist band in east Belfast.

He was knighted for his tin whistling in 2001 but has now seen fit to repudiate publicly his British inheritance and proclaim himself a “united Irishman”, standing in rank with those who have traditionally railed upon the United Kingdom for one reason only – its Bible Protestantism!

Free Presbyterian Sermon gets fair coverage from Nationalist newspaper!

Fermanagh_Herald_June2015Fermanagh Nationalist Newspaper, The Fermanagh Herald, in this week’s edition, printed two articles by a reporter who visited Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church on Lord’s Day, 31st May.

I do not think that we have ever received a more impartial coverage in any newspaper, be it ‘Unionist’ or otherwise!

Click on the thumbnail for a larger image of the printed article which you can zoom in to read.

Two messages by Rev. Foster

Both messages were preached in Kilskeery FPC on Sunday May 31st, 2015 in response to the referendum vote in the Republic of Ireland to legalize same-sex marriage.

A short response to some comments on my article on the Asher’s Bakery court case

My article on the Asher’s Bakery court case – “The reason why?? – “There is sin in the camp!!” – was given some coverage in the ‘Belfast Newsletter’ of Saturday 23rd May.
Of course, the secular man’s summary of such an article will always fail to give a faithful account of the reasoning within it that is based upon the Word of God.
That certainly was the case with this report of my article in the ‘Belfast Newsletter’.

As a consequence, it left the impression with some that I had condemned the McArthur family outright. I can but urge readers to consider my article in full as it appears on this site. Those Christians who were critical of me on the basis of an inaccurate representation of my article in a secular newspaper were not acting wisely or scripturally. Read more

Firebrand pastor blames Catholic church abuse for same sex referendum result

A surprising report in a Nationalist Newspaper with a readership which is predominantly Roman Catholic.

LOCAL firebrand preacher Ivan Foster has launched a scathing attack on Irish Catholicism after the South’s landslide yes vote to legalising gay marriage saying the historic vote was a direct result of the Catholic Church sexual abuse scandals.

Speaking after 62 per cent of people in the South voted in favour of changing the constitution to allow gay and lesbian couple to marry, the former minister of Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church went on to brand it as a “false religion” which has “cursed” Ireland.

In a statement sent to the Fermanagh Herald, the fundamentalist accused the South of defying God and “embracing sodomy”.

“This has been done in defiance of God’s Word. That, of course, is hardly surprising since the people of the land have been under the heel of Romanism for centuries and have thereby been taught to pay scant heed to what the Bible says, irrespective of the allegiance to the Word of God that the Church of Rome professes.

“Romanism is a false religion which masquerades as the religion of the Lord Jesus Christ. It has indoctrinated the Irish people in its falsehoods for centuries. What a curse its dark shadow has been to Ireland.

“But Ireland has not only had to bear the burden of false doctrine instigated by Rome, but the Irish people have been plagued by the licentious vileness of her ‘bachelor’ priests, many of whom used their position to molest and violate hundreds of children within this generation and countless multitudes in the centuries of her past dominance.

“In reaction to that and as a direct result of it, the majority in the Irish Republic have supported the legalising of sodomite marriage.”

Referring to a picture of Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams celebrating the yes vote with Ireland’s best known drag queen who is called Panti Bliss, he said: “The painted ‘female’ in the middle is Rory O’Neill, who performs as a ‘drag queen’.

“There you have it. The man who heads up Sinn Fein, the armed wing of which mounted a 30 year terror campaign in Northern Ireland, which resulted in hundreds of people, both Roman Catholic and Protestant, murdered and in thousands terrorised, robbed, injured, kidnapped and taken away and murdered and secretly buried, is at the heart of this “yes” vote.

“What an unholy caucus”

He appealed for prayer for the “Bible-believing minority” who he said would feel more isolated by the South’s decision to vote in favour of same-sex marriage.

He added: “Pray that many saddened, alarmed and troubled souls will seek out God’s Word and those who preach it and embrace the Truth of God in these evil times.”

Rev Ivan Foster is set to preach on the result of the Irish referendum at Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church this Sunday, 31, at 7pm. (See original article online here.)

Irish Republic defies God and embraces sodomy!

The Irish Republic has become the first country in the world to embrace sodomite ‘marriage’!
This has been done in defiance of God’s Word. That, of course, is hardly surprising since the people of the land have been under the heel of Romanism for centuries and have thereby been taught to pay scant heed to what the Bible says, irrespective of the allegiance to the Word of God that the Church of Rome professes.

The reason why?? – “There is sin in the camp!!

1280757771-free-presbyterian-protesters-demonstrate-against-belfast-gay-pride_400328A response by Rev Ivan Foster to the decision of the court on the Asher’s Bakery case.

“Up, sanctify the people, and say, Sanctify yourselves against to morrow: for thus saith the LORD God of Israel, There is an accursed thing in the midst of thee, O Israel: thou canst not stand before thine enemies, until ye take away the accursed thing from among you,” Joshua 7:13.

‘Gay cake’ row: Judge rules against Asher’s bakery – so reads the BBC Northern Ireland news site article on the court decision on the case brought against Asher’s Bakery on behalf of an acknowledged sodomite, Mr. Gareth Lee. Mr. Lee wanted the bakery to provide a cake with the slogan “support gay marriage” along with a picture of Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street, and the logo of the ‘Queerspace’ organisation.

Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible omits any reference to children needing to be converted in the section entitled: “Raising children in the Lord”

In the ‘Christian Living Section’ of ‘The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible’, there is an article entitled: “Raising Children in the Lord”.

This article outlines five “means” which Christian parents are to employ in raising children in the Lord. There is first a reference to praying for children. This is expanded to mean labouring to bring our children to Jesus so that He might bless them. Matthew 19:13-15 is included as a reference at this point.

Subsequent “means” of raising children are outlined as: teaching the Bible to your children, disciplining them in love, offering wise counsel, and lastly, living as a godly example before them.

There is something seriously, and sadly, lacking in this section on “Raising Children in the Lord”. There is no clear and obvious mention of the children, of believers, needing to be evangelised and converted to Christ. What is the aim in praying, teaching, disciplining, counselling and setting a godly example before our children? It is that they might be converted to Christ and that at an early age.

Membership of a church — is it necessary??

kilskeeryfpcA word to many who attend Free Presbyterian services. 

By Rev Ivan Foster

And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers, Acts 2:42.

This is an important matter in a day of lawlessness when God’s order is defied, neglected and overthrown in many lives. In order to enjoy the fulness of God’s blessing we must be conformed to all His commandments and laws.

The persons referred to in our text are true converts to Christ. They were the product of Holy Ghost conviction in a day we can only call a day of mighty revival power as it has never been known since. These were a people, doubtless of all ages, who acted upon the Word of God that was preached to them by the apostles that wonderful day. “Then they that gladly received his word were baptized.” They were the glad receivers of the Word of God. They openly professed their faith by being baptised. Furthermore, they were added unto the church, verses 41, 47. That means they “joined the church”, took their place amongst the ranks of the ekklesia, the called-out gathering of people professing faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

“Impartial Reporter” editorial critical of Jim Wells MLA and those who share his views of sodomy

A response by Rev Ivan Foster

I have known Mr McDaniel for a long time. Given his background, I am disappointed that he propagates in the editorial of his newspaper on 30th April, the standard abuse of Christians who seek to obey God’s Word regarding sodomy and even seeks to endorse his comments by ending with a quote from the Word of God, albeit, not from the Authorised Version.

“ALL CHRISTIANS TO ACTION STATIONS!!”

roman_soldierAn outline study of Jude – an important little book for today. By Rev Ivan Foster.

Part 4 : Further illustrations of former manifestations of apostasy.

Examples of the spirit of apostasy at work throughout the ages, recorded within Holy Scripture, are myriad. We may conclude from that fact that the Lord is most desirous of us learning of the dangers of apostasy, the waywardness into which the ‘creepers’ which Jude warns of would have us go. The danger is thus highlighted for us to heed.

Was what Jim Wells said wrong??

Unscriptural home environments are a threat to the wellbeing of children

By Rev Ivan Foster

DUP MLA and former Heath Minister, Jim Wells

DUP MLA and former Heath Minister, Jim Wells

In the wake of the storm over the comments made by Mr Jim Wells, the DUP former Minister of Health who was forced out of office by the concerted campaign of opposition to his comments on sodomite unions and the danger posed to children by such unions, a few comments are required.

It is clear that it was not just what Mr Wells had said at a political gathering in Downpatrick last week that aroused the opposition of the sodomite lobby. No, it was his long-held views of sodomy and sodomite marriage that caused these critics to seize upon what he said in Downpatrick and make it the basis of a vigorous and vicious crusade against him with the objective of having him removed from office.

The rejection of the Bible has opened the floodgates of hell!!

jim_wells

DUP MLA Jim Wells

The advocates of immorality and the perverted lifestyle of the sodomite community have become more vocal, more bold in their promoting of that which the Bible calls “an abomination” and in their denunciations of anyone who dares to contradict their views.

The Jim Wells incident has highlighted that!

At a recent political meeting in Downpatrick, a member of the audience videoed Mr Wells making some remarks about same sex marriages and the raising of children within such arrangements. In the video clip, Mr Wells says “the facts show you certainly don’t bring a child up in a homosexual relationship”. He went on to claim children were “far more likely to be abused or neglected” in “non-stable” marriages.

These words have caused a political uproar!

The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible’s article on Regeneration contradicts the Perseverance of the Saints

Within The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible article on Regeneration, the following paragraph is found: The sacraments of baptism and the Lord’s Supper reflect this twofold meaning of regeneration. The one is a rite of initiation, administered only once, as a sign of the new birth that happens only once. The other is a rite of nurture, signifying the way in which our souls are nourished and refreshed by feeding on Christ as the true food and drink of eternal life. It must be administered frequently, because the new life within us is still created, dependent life that will wane and die if not refueled and sustained.

The last sentence of this paragraph makes reference to the Believer’s ‘new life’ waning and dying and needing to be refueled and sustained by the Lord’s Supper to avoid this happening. The sentences states: It [ie. The Lord’s Supper] must be administered frequently, because the new life within us is still created, dependent life that will wane and die if not refueled and sustained. (Emphasis added)

Read the entire article posted on The sound of an alarm site here.

Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible employs a ‘somewhat vague’ and ‘confusing’ definition of the doctrine of ‘Regeneration’. Why?

In ‘The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible’ there is a full page article given over to an explanation of the important doctrine of ‘Regeneration’.

This full page article appears on page 1,774 of the Study Bible, in connection with the occurrence of the word ‘regeneration’ in Titus 3:5. This word translated ‘regeneration’ only appears twice in all the New Testament, and only in Titus 3:5 does it refer to the subject of individual salvation. The other place the word appears is Matthew 19:28, where it is used with respect to the coming restitution of all things.

Dr Beeke’s Bible venture begins to unravel

RHB_study_bible“He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy,” Proverbs 28:13.

There is something worse than sinning. It is a denying of our sin and a seeking to cover it.

There is something worse than dishonesty. It is the covering-up of a lie and seeking to pass it off as a poorly-stated truth.

Both of these things the producers of the “Reformation Heritage Study Bible” (RHSB) and the editor, Dr Joel Beeke, in particular are guilty of.

The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible justifies drinking alcohol

wineIf Christians were to read the following statement justifying the drinking of alcohol, especially the words underlined, without knowing where they came from, I wonder what their first reaction would be?

This is especially applicable to Free Presbyterians, who hold to a Temperance position on the consumption of alcohol.

The statement reads: Beware of the danger of drunkenness. We personally need to be very careful with strong drink. It is a stumbling block to many. Alcoholic drink is not wrong per se, but the Bible does clearly teach that drunkenness makes one unaware of what is happening. We must not misuse our bodies. Drunkennes is often linked to immorality and unseemly behavior. Therefore, respect the civil laws limiting alcohol consumption and guard yourself against ever becoming intoxicated.

Rev. Brian McClung has posted a series of articles dealing with this important matter on his personal blog “The Sound of an alarm”. Use the links below to read his articles.

The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible Map Section endorses the liberal interpretation of the Bible, with no crossing of the Red Sea

RHB_KJV_mapEditor’s comment.

Yet again Rev Brian McClung has highlighted an example of ‘unorthodoxy’ manifesting itself in Dr. Joel Beeke’s ‘The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible’.

It contains in its maps’ section a blatant denial of the Exodus record of God leading Israel through the Red Sea, which He had miraculously divided for them so that they could escape Pharaoh and his host.

The record of God’s inspired Word states:

And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen. And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the LORD looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians, And took off their chariot wheels, that they drave them heavily: so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel; for the LORD fighteth for them against the Egyptians. And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them,” Exodus 14:21-28.

That glorious event is wickedly and flagrantly denied in ‘The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible’.

May the Lord give grace to those ministers who were involved in this production and who by so doing have encouraged Free Presbyterians to purchase copies of this Bible now to speak out and warn the people of God about the corruptions and errors within this production.

I have no doubts that they do not share such modernistic and God-denying thinking but they must now disassociate themselves from this ’Study Bible’ and not become part of the deceitful cover-up of these wretched denials of God’s truth.

We commend this article to our readers and urge them to pray for those men who have unwittingly aided this unhappy venture that they might take the decisive action required by the Lord in this crucial issue.

“Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin,” James 4:17.
“Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking (disregarding) the law dishonourest thou God?” Romans 2:23.

“ALL CHRISTIANS TO ACTION STATIONS!!”

roman_soldierAn outline study of Jude – an important little book for today by Rev Ivan Foster.

Part 3: Remembering the lessons of former manifestations of apostasy.

It cannot be emphasised enough that “the thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun,” Ecclesiastes 1:9

.
The instigator of rebellion and apostasy, the devil, cannot change. He cannot change his tactics, his objectives or his methods.

Therefore, it is very easy to discover both his activities of former times repeated and, to a very large degree, anticipate the form and fashion of his next attack.

It is for this reason that the Saviour tells us, “As it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed,” Luke 17:26-30. The ways of the heart and mind under the control of sin will not alter.
