Shadow of the Antichrist book available to read or download in PDF format.

“The shadow of the Antichrist” was first published 22 years ago and was born out of a systematic series of message preached some years previously in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church on the book of “The Revelation of Jesus Christ.”

Printed copies of the book can still be had from The Sovereign Grace Advent Testimony book room.

It may also be ordered by email from its Secretary (click here).

This online pdf edition (4 mb) is for the convenience of those who wish to study prophecy and it may be freely downloaded.


A new booklet in the series:

“BIBLE LANDS IN BIBLE LIGHT”

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

Price £1 (40p+postage)

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

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

News review for week ending Friday 14th December 2018

Nevertheless they were disobedient, and rebelled against thee, and cast thy law behind their backs, and slew thy prophets which testified against them to turn them to thee, and they wrought great provocations. Therefore thou deliveredst them into the hand of their enemies, who vexed them, Nehemiah 9:26-27.

THE PROPAGANDA OF THE SODOMITES ADVANCES

“And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house of the LORD,” 2 Kings 23:7.

I have been prompted to pen this little article by the BBC mounting yet another news feature ‘promoting’ sodomy and giving a platform to those who wickedly claim that they are ‘Christian’ sodomites.

The BBC article does not accurately give the Bible-believer’s answer to such a claim as might be expected, given that the BBC is an ungodly organisation which has no allegiance to God and His Truth.

The evidence put forth for ‘sodomite Christianity’ is based simply on the declaration made by those that claim they are both ‘gay and Christian’!

That, to say the least, is rather a tenuous foundation upon which to stake the genuineness of this assertion. After all, Judas would have claimed to have been a follower of Christ! So too did Simon (Magus), Acts 8. There have been millions of individuals who have claimed to have been ‘true believers’ since the Fall of Adam. However, simply to make such a claim is not sufficient evidence upon which to accept such a person as a Christian.

No, there must be evidence that the person is a Christian. The Lord clearly tell us what the evidence is. Read more

Presbyterian minister: Church must do more for people with HIV

Why we should love the Jewish people

The substance of two school morning assembly messages given in Kilskeery Independent Christian School, by retired minister and school administrator, Rev Ivan Foster

“Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: and I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: and I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed,” Genesis 12:1-3.

It is clear from the first words spoken to Abraham, from whom sprang the Jewish people, that he and his descendants would be those about whom there would a division of opinions. There would be those that would “bless” them and there would be those who would “curse” them!

Those that “bless” them would be blessed of God and those that “cursed” them would be cursed of God.

They were, in heaven’s eyes, a very special people. Read more


All Souls Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church holds Transgender Remembrance service

When you survey the pitiful state of much of professing Christendom in Ulster today, you cannot help but be reminded of Paul’s caution to Timothy, written under the inspiration of God.

Surely it cannot be disputed that the religious deception is waxing worse and worse in our land.

And no more blatant example of this could surely be found than last week’s ‘Transgender Day of Remembrance’ service in the reprobate All Souls Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church in Belfast.

This church shows such a disregard for the Word of God that it is actually breathtaking.

All Souls Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church holds this transgender service every year as it continues to proudly defy God’s Word and the natural order he ordained, which can be seen in the verse at the top of this article.

Truth for today, Pt1

Truth for Today — Studies in Ruth
The Prologue,  1:1-2. (Part 1)

“Now it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehemjudah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons. And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehemjudah. And they came into the country of Moab, and continued there.”

The first two verses of this book present us with the initial setting for the history it contains.
The small book of Ruth nestles between the book of Judges and the 1st Book of Samuel. It provides the perfect link between the two eras. It is like the first streaks of dawn that heralds a new day. The  opening reminds us of the dark days of the judges but the book ends with the birth of David’s grandfather, and the hope of brighter times that generates. It is a book in which is foreshadowed the future ingathering of the Gentiles and of better times for Israel when the Lord will visit them again.
The last word of the book is David. It certainly points us to great David’s Great Son! It is the 8th book of the Bible and as such marks a new beginning.
We all know that the whole of Scripture is relevant to our day, even as it has been for all previous generations. Some portions, however, are most obviously relevant. This book is particularly relevant to our day.

The first two verses indicate that:

I. IT WAS A TIME OF DISORDER
The last verse of Judges: “In those days there was no king in Israel.” Judges 21:25.

1. There was no king. No central command or unifying government. The Lord should have been their King but His law was ignored or rejected by the nation generally. For many professing Christians today, there is “no king.” They are not governed by the law of Christ, the King.

2. Instead there was self rule. “ . . every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” Every man was his own king. His whims and fancies, his desires and ambitions were sovereign. “I think” replaced “Thus saith the Lord.” Doctrine is proclaimed on the basis of how popular it will be rather than whether it is in the Word of God or not.

3. It effected everyone.  “ . . every man.” This was the universal rule within Israel. It helps us understand the tragedy that takes place in the opening verses.

Canon Mark Harvey brings Romanist priest into Lurgan Church of Ireland

There was much consternation last month after it was revealed that a Romanist priest had been brought into a service marking the addition of more than 200 people who lost their lives during the two world wars to the war memorial in Lurgan, County Armagh.

The pro-abortion and ardent fan of liaising with Popery, Ulster Unionist MLA Doug Beattie, brought the matter to light in his rage against any who would seek to defend Biblical Christianity.

It would appear a service was held at the war memorial before a further service then took place in Shankill Parish Church in the town. At this service, a leading Papist, Canon Liam Stevenson, was then asked to take the pulpit and lead part of the service in the supposedly Protestant church, where the minister is Canon Mark Harvey. Read more on the Protestant Revival website


Noted Papist ‘Father’ Brian d’Arcy speaks in Ballycastle Presbyterian Church

The well known emissary of papal deceit, ‘Father’ Brian d’Arcy (pictured), was guest of honour on Tuesday night (13th November) in Ballycastle Presbyterian Church.

The Passionist priest was in attendance at a meeting of the Causeway Coast Peace Group, which sows its ecumenical seeds of compromise on the north coast of Northern Ireland.

Ballycastle Presbyterian Church is a habitual venue for all manner of disgraceful ecumenical activity, and regularly plays host to the outrageous ‘Ballycastle Prayer Partnership’, a monthly gathering of attendees of the Presbyterian, Church of Ireland and Romanist churches in the town. Read more on the Protestant Revival website.


A TERRIBLE REALITY!

“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived,” 2 Timothy 3:13

We are given some details of just what exactly ‘evil men’ will engage in at the close of this age in the opening verses of this chapter.

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away,” verses 1-5.I have often pointed out that the word ‘perilous’, in verse 1, is the same word used in Matthew 8:28. “And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.” The Greek word translated ‘perilous’ in our text is here translated ‘fierce’. Read more…

Ballymena Presbyterian church invites Papists to ecumenical prayer meeting

The High Kirk Presbyterian Church in Ballymena has held an ecumenical prayer meeting to which practising Roman Catholics, who offer prayer to Mary and to dead so-called ‘Saints’, were warmly invited.

Entitled ‘Prayers of Blessing for Ballymena’, the event hosted by the allegedly Protestant church was advertised in the Roman Catholic parish bulletin in the County Antrim town.

Demonstrating the continued unchanged nature of the Church of Rome, the Roman Catholic faithful in the town are also advised in the same bulletin, just a couple of lines down, that they can gain a “plenary indulgence” between the 1st and 8th of November by “visiting a cemetery or church and praying for the dead”. Read more on the Protestant Revival website.

The glory days of Ian Paisley

Four years have passed since the death of Dr. Paisley and we are remounting an article that reminisces on the days of blessing in his ministry.

What a man of God dear Dr Paisley was in those days, which I consider his heyday, the zenith of his pulpit ministry. How faithfully he warned the people of God in Ulster and also in the United Kingdom and further afield, regarding the gathering clouds of ignorance which were the direct result of the apostasy in the so-called Protestant pulpits. The main ‘Protestant’ denominations in Ulster had, through their links with the ecumenical movement and involvement with the World Council of Churches, imbibed the modernistic notions and the unity with Rome delusions, propagated by the false prophets of 20th century ‘Christianity’! Read more
