New book for sale! Things that announce, accompany and follow the return of Christ

Studies in the prophetic Scriptures

by Rev. Ivan Foster

I believe with all my heart that there is a need for the people of God to return to that spiritual state in which the early church was – a waiting expectantly for the return of Christ. So it was in Thessalonica.

“For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come,” 1 Thessalonians 1:9-10.

The early church was a waiting church. It was not that they expected Him to come any day. Paul makes it clear in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 that they were not to anticipate such an early return. “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,” 2 Thessalonians 2:3. No, before the return of Christ there was to be a great apostasy, a falling away and out of it was to develop the Antichrist, the man of sin and son of perdition, verse 4.

New book for sale! Departure, defeat, deliverance

Studies in the Book of Judges for young people

by Ann Foster

God gave Joshua and the armies of Israel many glorious victories over the nations who inhabited Canaan. The land was subdued before them, the tabernacle was set up, the priesthood was established and the land was divided by lot among the tribes of Israel. The nation enjoyed a period of prolonged rest and peace while Joshua was yet alive (Joshua 23:1). God had fully and faithfully kept the promises made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to give the land of Canaan to the children of Israel. Joshua could boldly and without fear of contradiction declare to the people, ‘Not one thing hath failed of all the good things which the LORD your God spake concerning you; all are come to pass unto you, and not one thing hath failed thereof’ (Joshua 23:1). Before he died, Joshua fervently and repeatedly urged the people to love the LORD their God, to walk in all His ways and keep His commandments diligently. He exhorted them to cleave to the LORD and to serve Him only. If they did so, then the LORD would expel the rest of the nations of Canaan from the land. However, if they mingled with the heathen nations and made marriages with them, there would be no more victories. There could be no victory without God. It is only as we walk with God and keep His commandments that we can enjoy a victorious Christian life. (From the Introduction) more…

The road back from national backsliding

An article based upon a message first preached in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church by Rev Ivan Foster on Lord’s Day evening, 11th December 1983 and again in Markethill Free Presbyterian Church on Lord’s Day morning, 18th November, 2012

The protests and warnings surrounding the Enniskillen massacre

An introduction to the four sermons – “The Enniskillen bombing of 25 years ago”. At 10.45 am on Lord’s Day 8th November, 1987, an IRA bomb, planted in an empty building belonging to the Roman Catholic church, exploded without warning and killed 11 Protestants gathered to watch the Remembrance Day wreath-laying ceremony at the war memorial beside the East Bridge. One victim of the bombing, Mr Ronnie Hill, lay in a coma for 13 years before he died, the twelfth victim of a most wicked crime. Read more

I dare call it murder

“Today, a group of Free Presbyterians supported a protest organised by the Government & Morals Committee of the Presbytery against the recent opening of the Marie Stopes abortion clinic. The opening of the clinic is seen by many in Northern Ireland as an attempt to subvert the law on abortion in Northern Ireland and introduce “abortion on demand”.

In 1984, Rev Ivan Foster, Free Presbyterian minister in Kilskeery and member of the Northern Ireland Assembly for Fermanagh & South Tyrone, introduced a motion in the Assembly which read: ‘I propose: That this Assembly opposes the extension of the Abortion Act 1967, or any like legislation, to Northern Ireland.’

The motion was supported and passed. Only one member of the Assembly voted against it. He was Alliance member for East Belfast, Mr. Addie Morrow, Alliance politician.

What was said by Rev Foster in opposition to abortion in 1984 is still relevant over 28 years later. Read the speech, “I dare call it murder”, here.

Ruled over by those who hate us

I was caused to think on these things by the ongoing controversy surrounding proposals for the future of education in Northern Ireland. The proposals come from the DUP/SF power-sharing camp. It would be most surprising, indeed impossible, for anything to come from such a political alliance which was truly for the good of the Protestant people of Ulster. Sinn Fein might rightly be termed those who have “hated” the Protestant majority in Ulster. They proved their hatred in the past by mounting a 30-year terror campaign in which they slaughtered hundreds of innocent Protestant people and many, many Roman Catholics whom they deemed to have gotten in their way.

A message for this day for all Free Presbyterians

The Westminster divines and the Millennial Reign of Christ

The story is told of a minister who sought to engage his esteemed colleague Dr William Cunningham in conversation about the Premillennial return of Christ to this earth. Seeking to obtain from Dr. Cunningham a verdict on what he thought of these end time views he received an interesting reply. Dr Cunningham said that: He saw nothing to alarm or repel in views which were entertained by some of the soundest among the Westminster divines, but that, for himself, he had not as yet had leisure to look into the matter.

Here is undeniable evidence that there were amongst the Westminster Divines those who were pre-millennial, post-tribulationists – something denied by opponents of this Bible truth.

Dr William Twisse, a premillennialist, was Prolocutor of the Westminster Assembly until his death.
