The Sad Consequences Of Being Linked To Wicked Men

This morning my daily reading included the last chapter of 1st Kings, chapter 22. It features the sad departure of good King Jehoshaphat from the truth of God when he entered into a political allegiance with the evil King Ahab, a man notorious for his wickedness.

Of Ahab we read: “And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD above all that were before him. And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshipped him. And he reared up an altar for Baal in the house of Baal, which he had built in Samaria. And Ahab made a grove; and Ahab did more to provoke the LORD God of Israel to anger than all the kings of Israel that were before him,” 1 Kings 16:30-33. Read more

Perfumes And Deodorants . . . . They Testify Of Our Sinfulness!

“For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me. My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness,” Psalm 38:4-5.

It is a quite remarkable thing that King David, despite all his military engagements, never was wounded. At least there is no record in Scripture of him every suffering any injuries in battle. The nearest he came to a wounding was his near fatal encounter in his latter years with one of the offspring of Goliath.

“Moreover the Philistines had yet war again with Israel; and David went down, and his servants with him, and fought against the Philistines: and David waxed faint. And Ishbibenob, which was of the sons of the giant, the weight of whose spear weighed three hundred shekels of brass in weight, he being girded with a new sword, thought to have slain David. But Abishai the son of Zeruiah succoured him, and smote the Philistine, and killed him. Then the men of David sware unto him, saying, Thou shalt go no more out with us to battle, that thou quench not the light of Israel,” 2 Samuel 21:15-17.

But apart from this incident I believe it correct to say that the Lord kept David safe on the battlefield. Read more

Cowardly compromise

Below is a letter I sent off to the Belfast Newsletter on October 12th in response to its article on the question of a complete ‘lock down’ in Northern Ireland.

The article highlights the misgivings of DUP MP, Sir Jeffrey Donaldson and is reproduced below.

Sadly, it appears he has not the courage to confront the reason why the whole country may well suffer a lock down rather than those areas, due to their defiance of the social distancing rules, have seen an increase in the numbers of infections.


Why does not some Unionist politician highlight why the Stormont Executive is not considering a ‘local lockdown’ where the infection rate is highest?

Sir Jeffrey Donaldson dances around the topic but fails to come right out and denounce the compromise of which his Party leader is guilty! Read more

Playing the two ends against the middle

If the thinking of the British government of the WW 2 era was as muddled and confused as is today’s political leadership, then we today would likely still be living under Nazi rule!

There is a measure of ‘befuddlement’ in political life today that is unsurpassed by anything history can produce!

There is a simple reason for this! Despite the presence of Oxford and Cambridge graduates galore within parliament and doubtless brains aplenty, there is hardly an ounce of gumption between them all.

WHY? The answer is simple. When it comes to that wisdom whereby we walk in a path of peace and prosperity, mankind is utterly lacking!

Those who believe and embrace the Bible will find the ‘path of life’ for it is revealed there for all to enjoy who will trust the Author of it – the Lord Jesus Christ.

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore,” Psalm 16:11. Read more

Sacked Christian in court

Below is a follow-up to the matter of the lady sacked from her position in a Church of England primary school in England.

The matter is now before a court and this report gives some coverage of the court proceedings. There is a need for Christians to take heed to the spirit that is enveloping the nations and the rejection of Bible religion that is the result.

Note how this woman’s views are called “extreme” and “reactionary” by both the barrister representing the school. Read more

Further evidence of perverts in control

The following article appears in the Belfast Telegraph of September 21, 2020.

It should be read and prayerfully noted by every Christian and we should all learn from it the direction that things are going in.

This ‘pro-perversion’ movement is no mere transient innovation or passing fad on the part of those who are slaves to that which is ‘politically correct’!

No, it is the latest manifestation of humanity’s departure from God and its rebellion against the order He has ordained.

Anyone who objects to these departures from what is natural and seeks to uphold God’s ordinances will be summarily made to suffer the wrath of the perverted establishment. Read more… 

Cookstown ‘anti-sodomite’ protest

Here is a report of yesterday’s Free Presbyterian protest against the shameful pro-sodomite parade in Cookstown, led by the shameless Church of Ireland ‘minister’, Andrew Rawlings.

It is encouraging that amidst the restrictions of the Covid-19 pandemic there are still those ready to ’Stand up, stand for Jesus’! It is especially heartening to see quite a few young people supporting the witness.

May the following report be a blessing on this Sabbath Day.

Free Presbyterians to Protest against Sodomites

The following article appeared in today’s ‘Belfast Telegraph’.

It reveals the plans of perversion-supporters in Mid-Ulster, led by Church of Ireland ‘minister’, ‘Reverend’ Andrew Rawding, to mount a protest parade in Cookstown, Co. Tyrone, on Saturday 19th at 3.00pm, in support of the moral plague of sodomy that is afflicting the world.

Free Presbyterians plan a counter-protest. Please pray that many will support the effort by their presence and for the Lord’s blessing on their witness against the actions of those who seek to promote the wickedness of sodomites and their allied degenerates. Read more

Sodom embraced and sanctioned

Below are two articles on the same shameful subject – the nation’s rush to embrace and sanction the wickedness which damned Sodom!!

One report contains the announcement of and the words of rejoicing over the fact that from today a change in the law permits ‘religious ‘same-sex marriages’ in Northern Ireland.

The second report contains a warning from a Christian politician, Mr Jim Wells.

Christian, please take heed to “the signs of the times” as the saviour demands of us, Matthew 16:1-4. The sky is darkening and “the night cometh, when no man can work,” John 9:4.

It is time for God’s people to heed the exhortation of Paul in Romans 13:11-14. Read more

The ‘tears’ of Martin McGuinness

The following is a report in ‘The Belfast Telegraph’ of a new documentary on the life of Martin McGuinness which is to be shown on RTE on this Wednesday evening. It will serve to show that he was a hypocritical liar who lived to murder and terrorise.

I found it especially grieving that the wife of the late Dr Ian Paisley was quoted as saying: “Baroness Eileen Paisley, the widow of former DUP leader Ian Paisley, with whom McGuinness formed an unlikely friendship, said he “did his best to bring peace and reconciliation and succeeded in a large measure.”

She recalled how he had been “tearful” as he paid his respects to her husband following his death in September 2014. “He bowed his head over the coffin and said to me that he had lost a friend,” she said.

“I thought that said more than anything else that could be said.”

I find these words so impossible to understand, coming especially from one who claims to believe the Bible! For the tears of Martin McGuinness at the coffin of Dr Paisley to be considered in any way genuine, one would have to have seen tears shed over the coffins of the many, many innocent victims, Roman Catholic and Protestant, whose deaths he was responsible for! Read more

Veteran doctor who lost tribunal after disagreeing with transgenderism ‘disturbed’ by new rules for NI workers

A doctor who found himself out of a job after objecting to transgender terminology says he is “very disturbed” by new rules which effectively compel Northern Irish civil servants to use such terms.

Dr David Mackereth, a Christian physician of 31 years’ experience, said such rules will not end with the Northern Ireland Civil Service, but are likely to start appearing across all workplaces.

He was speaking after the News Letter revealed this week that in 2019, while there was no government in place, officials altered the rule book for the civil service so that all 23,000 workers must use whatever “names and pronouns” a transgender individual wants – and breaching the policy can lead to disciplinary action. Read more

Northern Ireland Civil Service leaders aid the defiance of God which the so-called ‘Transgenderism’ movement engenders!

The newspaper report that spurred me to write, makes alarming reading. Use transgender pronouns or face possible dismissal: new guidelines for NI’s 23,000 civil servants.

Without any apparent authority, bureaucratic pen-pushers can change the terms of employment for some 23,000 individuals and require them to submit to an ungodly diktat or face the sack!

We are moving ever nearer the day when the profession of Christ and His Law will be outlawed. Read more
