The Ulster Protestant and the Williamite wars in Ireland

Back in 1990, I published a series of messages I had preached in Carrickfergus Free Presbyterian Church. I believe it would be profitable to reprint these messages.

There is an ominous parallel in the ‘de-protestantising’ of Ireland under James II with that which has been happening in Ulster over the last 30 years. Romanists and republicans have come to prominence, through British Government duplicity and also compromising and self-serving so-called Protestants! Evidence of this may be seen in the Civil Service, where recently a senior civil servant was paid a large amount of money as compensation for the distress he has suffered having to walk under a portrait of the Queen! Read more

Helter-skelter in Norwich Cathedral

When I read the following article on the BBC News site this morning, I could not but think that a “Helter-Skelter” within a modern anti-Bible church building is a wonderfully apt illustration of the religion propagated there!!

Norwich Cathedral: Helter-skelter offers new experience

A full-size helter-skelter has been constructed inside a cathedral to give visitors a unique view of the building.

The 16.7m (55ft) vintage fairground ride took four people two days to build in the nave of Norwich Cathedral.

For the first time it allows people to stand close to its medieval roof bosses, believed to be the largest display of their kind in the world.

The Very Reverend Jane Hedges, Dean of Norwich Cathedral, said the installation was “certainly not a gimmick”.

It will be at the cathedral until 18 August.

The term “Helter-Skelter” is often used to describe ‘confusion’. Such indeed is the state of religion in the world today! It is as Jeremiah said of his land some 2600 years ago. Read more

Reading the time on the face of God’s clock! – Part 1: Rebellion against God

As we may look abroad and see the evidences of the passage of the weeks and months of the year in the realm of nature, in the evidence of the physical decline of the human body, not to mention the movement of the hands on our clocks and watches, even so may we look around and note the indications of the passage of time in the lifespan of this world as it is revealed to us in the Bible.

Christian, the Bible is a map by which we find our way to heaven but more than that, it also marks the present position of mankind on the way to the end of the purpose God has for this earth!

Satellite Navigation is not new! Just as I can insert a destination into my Sat Nav and then watch my progress upon its screen as I journey toward my destination, even so I can observe exactly the present position of humanity on its journey toward eternity!

In keeping with my title, the Bible will tell us of the passage of time and the approach of the final hour for this world.

There are given to us in the Bible certain features that will mark the end of this age. These features may be seen in times past, but never to the degree of union and fusion as they will be seen in the last days! Read more

Claudy IRA attack anniversary: Catholic Church, PSNI and NIO silence over ‘new’ files

One of the Claudy bombing families says it is “disappointing but not unexpected” that the Catholic Church, PSNI and Northern Ireland Office have declined to say why they are withholding some 20 boxes of evidence in relation to the atrocity.

The IRA murdered nine civilians with three car bombs in the village just outside Londonderry on July 31, 1972. In 2010 the Police Ombudsman made explosive headlines when it revealed correspondence showing that the RUC, Northern Ireland Office (NIO) and the Catholic Church covered-up the suspected role of South Derry IRA commander and Catholic priest, Fr James Chesney, in the atrocity.

James Miller, whose grandfather David was murdered in the attack, was one of those who attended a simple remembrance ceremony at the village memorial on Wednesday.

“It was really a poignant and sombre event but at the same time it was good to come together with the other families again,” he said. Read more

Belfast defamed!!

How grieving to the true Christian are the God-defying and odious antics taking place in and around the city hall of Northern Ireland’s capital today as the streets will be desecrated by the blatant displays of immorality and depravity is the “Sodomite Pride Parade”!

Sinn Fein, which has championed murder and terrorism as a means of obtaining political power, is now promoting the life-style hated of God, sodomy, and declaring their identity with it and their pride in it! Read more


“Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD’S hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad,” Isaiah 51:7.

The word ‘mad’ at the end of our text refers to a ‘boastful foolishness’. It is akin to the workings of alcohol on the mind of the drunkard. As the old saying goes: “When the drink is in, the wit is out!”

There is an intoxication sweeping over the world today and manifesting itself in the acceptance of and engaging in that which in former times was considered utterly shameful and obnoxious.

I am referring to the evil plague of ‘sodomy’ and its allied wickednesses. Read more
