When being vexed is not enough

“And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; and delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)” 2 Peter 2:5-8.

Recent events in Ulster, when the hierarchy of the Democratic Unionists Party took it upon themselves to sanction a sodomite standing as a candidate for that party in the local government elections, has been a grief and a vexation to many Christians, including some within the the DUP.

Sadly, it would appear that we cannot say ‘all’ Christians within the DUP for some seem very capable of hiding that grief and giving no outward appearance of sorrow at the actions of their party leaders.

However, there comes a time when being ‘vexed’ is not enough! Vexation must be manifested. Read more


DUP sinks still further with lesbian council candidate

This an excellent article which highlights the sad decline of the DUP from its first policies and practice. We commend it to our readers.

There have been recent reports in the press in which some Free Presbyterian DUP members have sought to say that there has been no change in DUP policy.

It just cannot be denied that it is NOW that party’s policy to select and sanction a sodomite candidate, spending members’ money to have her elected, claiming that she is an ‘excellent candidate’ and that their supporters should vote for her!

Those who would deny the truth of these statements are acting as the proverbial ostrich and but showing themselves up as ‘defenders of the indefensible’!!!”

A statement by the Presbytery officers on our Church’s position on marriage

This is a statement formulated by the officers of Presbytery in the light of what is currently taking place in the Province in terms of the increasing promotion of sodomy. It is our intention to release this statement to the press. Please pray that it will be used by the Lord.

The Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster unreservedly subscribes to the fundamental principle that God’s infallible Word is the final authority on all matters of faith and practice. Accordingly, the Free Presbyterian Church publicly re-emphasises its purpose to uphold the clear revelation of Scripture that marriage is a covenant and conjugal union between a man and a woman, (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:4-5). As Christ’s teaching in this Matthew 19 passage reveals, this divine injunction of marriage between male and female is binding upon all of mankind throughout all time.  The injunction is designed to provide the only framework within which stable family life can exist. Consequently, the pathway to the improvement of society is found in adherence to the Biblical principle of marriage. “Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people,” (Proverbs 14:34).

In keeping with this clear Biblical teaching and authority, the Free Presbyterian Church underlines its opposition to all marital and sexual relationships outside the covenant of Biblical marriage. Scripture clearly reveals that such marital and sexual relationships are sinful and will prohibit entrance into the Kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 – “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators…nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind…shall inherit the kingdom of God.”

Therefore, as a Church we are saddened by the attempts of political parties to normalise and promote marital and sexual relationships that are in contravention of the clear teaching of Scripture. We would remind political leaders that they are subject to God’s moral law and should endeavour to honour it, keeping in mind that one day all men will give an account of themselves to God (Romans 14:12). We would also put on record the Biblical reminder that only through repentance from such sin and by faith in Christ alone will forgiveness and acceptance with God be obtained (1 Corinthians 6:11).


News review for week ending Friday 26th April 2019

“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them,” 2 Timothy 3:12-14.

Lyra McKee ‘killed accidentally’ by ‘republican volunteer’ claim Saoradh

What brainless nitwit issued such a gormless and ludicrous statement as this!!!?? It reveals the depraved idiocy of the IRA!!

Our hopes and dreams have been snuffed out: Partner of Lyra McKee

How unimaginably true are these words in a manner unintended by this woman. She, like her dead companion, is part of that community who utterly reject the Word of God regarding their lifestyle. Consequently, she will discover as has her companion that: ‘The hope of the righteous shall be gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.,’ Proverbs 10:28.

Lyra McKee: Murdered Belfast journalist ‘committed to truth’

What a dreadful notion some have of what ‘TRUTH’ is! You cannot be ‘committed to truth’ and live in defiance of God’s TRUTH!!

Lyra McKee’s funeral will be a celebration of her life – partner

What was her life?? ‘A tireless advocate and activist’ in the cause of sodomites!!!!

Australian rugby player sacked for expressing his Christian views publicly

Israel Folau publicly expressed his view on sin and how Christ can save those who repent. His playing career was unceremoniously terminated due to pressure from sponsors. The video below, from Sky News Australia gives an interesting defence of the right to freely express Christian views.


Presbyterian minister new leader of ecumenical den of iniquity, Corrymeela

This article from the “Protestant Revival” website on the subject of the Corrymeela Community needs to be considered alongside an article we wrote back in 2015 when Free Presbyterian Elder, Mervyn Storey wished this iniquitous venture ‘well’ when he met with the sodomite Romanist who led it.

Here is the article from 2015 which was entitled: “Principles abandoned – God’s Truth Betrayed!”

The Christian’s confidence

“Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ,” Philippians 1:6.

From this verse I would like to set before you some considerations suggested by what it is Paul wrote.

The word ‘confident’ used by Paul is a very strong word. It speaks of a very strong and firm persuasion. It was an unshakeable assurance. Thus Paul speaks of the Christian grace evident in the lives of the Philippians. What he remembers of them utterly convinces him of their conversion to Christ through faith in the gospel message. Read more

The true character of the ‘sainted’ Lyra McKee

I was sent a link to a video recording of Lyra McKee going on about that which was the chief purpose of her life, defending and advancing that which God calls an ‘abomination’ and utterly repudiates in the inspired writing of the apostle Paul in Romans 1:16-32.
I give that link at the end of this article and I would ask readers to listen at least from 9 minutes in until the end.

McKee claims that she met a ‘Free Presbyterian’ mother, a church attender, in a ‘gay bar’ where the mother was accompanying her sodomite son in order to support him.

Now, as one who experienced the blessings of the years of what was revival blessing in the 60s and 70s and who still believes in the standards embraced by that generation of Free Presbyterians, I find it hard, indeed almost impossible to believe that a mother who is in truth a ‘Free Presbyterian Church attender’ could be guilty of such conduct as is here alleged. Read more


Rev. Foster responds to DUP’s endorsement of a Sodomite candidate for Council election

Alison Bennington

Sir,

It is with sadness and many misgivings that I note that the DUP have endorsed a candidate, one Alison Bennington, who defies the laws of God and nature and openly proclaims herself ‘gay’ or to use the Biblical term, a Sodomite!

It is clear that the DUP has now utterly repudiated its founding principles and that in order to win over a small section of voters, whose support no God-fearing person would wish to have.

In order to obtain such support, the DUP is prepared to abandon abandon God and His obedient people in order to get the support of those abandoned by God!!

Church of Ireland prayer event in Papist monastery in ‘Relentless’ march to Rome

Canon Jim Carson

A Church of Ireland prayer event has been hosted in Clonard Monastery in west Belfast.

Just take a moment to think about that.

Clonard Monastery, a hub of Romanist worship, in which prayers are offered for the dead and the blasphemous Mass sees Christ sacrificed again and again, was hosting a Church of Ireland prayer event.

The ‘Relentless’ prayer initiative is an event being run throughout Lent.

According to the Diocese of Connor website: “Each day during Lent, a prayer space will be available for people to drop in and spend time in quietness to reflect and pray”. Read more on the Protestant Revival website


‘Grave sucking’ and dead raising – Journey Community Church hosts ‘supernatural’ Bethel movement

John Ashe, Journey Community Church

The Bethel Ministries megachurch, based in Redding, California, is well known for its outrageous antics and Christ defying behaviour.

From promoting extra-biblical revelation to attempting to raise people from the dead, it really doesn’t take much discernment to know this church is filled to the brim with heresy.

Then there is the falling gold dust and feathers which appear at their meetings, apparently sent by God, as He often did that in the Bible. Oh no wait, He didn’t.

A “glory cloud” also apparently appears at meetings, similar to the pillar of cloud that guided Moses and the children of Israel. One would imagine they would deny a smoke machine is in any way utilised at meetings. Read more on the Protestant Revival website.


News review for week ending Friday 12th April 2019

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion, Psalm 2:1-6.

Will Methodist ministers stand up against transgender uniforms at Methody College?

Rev David Campton, Methodist minister and board member of Methody College

Now the battle over sodomy is more or less won by the Christ deniers in the western world, the next battleground they have turned their attention to is transgenderism.

As was the case with sodomy, nothing but total surrender to the transgender cause will do, and all must fall before this sacred sow of secularism. If you don’t believe that’s how such servants of the devil operate, just look at the abuse received by anti-abortion and anti-sodomy sections of Northern Irish society for holding back the tide of depravity attempting to sweep through our land.

The same spirit as that highlighted in Habakkuk 2:5 is evident here. It says: “Yea also, because he transgresseth by wine, he is a proud man, neither keepeth at home, who enlargeth his desire as hell, and is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathereth unto him all nations, and heapeth unto him all people”. Read more on the Protestant Revival website.


The sad ignorance that abounds in the ranks of professing Protestants!!

“This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness,” Ephesians 4:17-19.

Just a few days ago, I received an email from a lady who had taken umbrage at my criticism of an Irish Presbyterian minister in an article I wrote back in February 2016.

The brief exchange (2nd – 3rd April) that followed will, I am sure, prove of interest and also helpful to those of God’s people who have faced similar satanic ‘blasts’!

I have no wish to embarrass the lady in question so I have removed everything that may identify her.

Christian, please pray for her and the many like her, deceived by the lies of ecumenical false prophets in the mainline churches. Read more

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 14-15.

55th anniversary of my conversion.

Friday 5th of April is the 55th anniversary of my conversion. I found this recording of me giving my testimony in Mountain View Bible Bible Church, Hummelstown, Pennsylvania, USA, on 12th April 1992.

I was asked to give my testimony and also to speak of affairs in Northern Ireland.

What I had to say back then reflects the views and hopes we entertained for Ulster before the sad events that surrounded the tragic political events of the DUP entering power-sharing with Sinn Fein/IRA in 2007.

I trust the Lord will bless the witness to all who listen to this message which has been played and downloaded 1000s of times when it was available on SermonAudio.

Sincerely in Christ,

Ivan Foster.


Archeology bears testimony to the accuracy of the Bible!

The Christian does not require the endorsement of archeology in order to believe the Bible! We say with the Psalmist: “Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever,” Psalm 119:160.

Of course we welcome the testimony of the past emerging to declare the truth of God’s Word and trust that the unbeliever will take note. What the Saviour says in the parable of the rich man and Lazarus must however, be noted. “If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead,” Luke 16:31. Read more
