The unchanging price of God’s blessing

Judges 20:18-48

A message preached at a special season of prayer on the 41st anniversary of the opening of the first gospel hall here in Kilskeery.

The Book of Judges is in many ways a most distressing book for it records the follies of man when he departs from God’s truth and follows his own evil desires. There is a statement which explains the spirit of that day. “In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes,” Judges 21:25, (17:6).

The staggering from folly to folly, from wickedness to wickedness recorded in this book is the outcome of that policy.

Chapters 19-20 contain an account which is distressing to read yet it is an narrative of the words and actions of the people of God some 20 years after the renewing of the covenant with the Lord that is recorded in Joshua 24:14-28. What a solemn covenant this was and yet what wickedness existed among the people here in Judges 19-20, just 20 years later, and 40 years after Moses.

The deeds of the Benjamites in the city of Gibeah, as stated in chapter 19:22, are but a repeat of the wickedness of the Sodomites of Genesis 19:4. Sodomy can corrupt even the people of God. It is the SIN of today.

Sadly, this wickedness was defended by the rest of the tribe of Benjamin, 20:12-14.

In response to this sinful defence of the men of Gibeah, the whole tribe of Benjamin made itself guilty of the evil and the rest of the tribes of Israel set themselves to judge that sin.
It is the events that unfolded as they pursued that objective that I wish to consider today for there are lessons for us to learn from these events of some 3500 years ago.


An education acceptable to God

This is an excellent article on the subject of ‘Christian Education’ by Pastor Ralph Ovadal. It is directed primarily at an American audience but it deals with Bible principles which are applicable to all Christian parents, irrespective of where they live.

As Pharaoh sought the destruction of Israel by seeking to destroy the male Hebrew children, so that evil policy of seeking the destruction of the children of believers remains a chief weapon in the hand of the devil.

We prayerfully commend this article to all our readers. Please share it with Christian parents within your family circle.

25th Sodomite parade in Belfast

Protesters_gay_prideThousands attended the sodomite celebration of immorality in Belfast on Saturday 1st August. The BBC news site contained the following comments.

One spectator, who moved out of Belfast more than 40 years ago, said the growth of the local Gay Pride movement was a sign of how much the city has changed.

“When I left Belfast in 1974 you would never, ever, ever imagine that this kind of thing could happen in Belfast and it’s brilliant, absolutely fantastic,” the woman said.

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.
