“Are we nearing the end of the age and how close is Christ’s return?”
By Rev Ivan Foster
When considering such a question as this, we must carefully bear in mind the words of the Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew 24:42: “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.”
Setting a date upon the Lord’s return is utter folly in the light of these words and even more so in the light of Mark 13:32. “But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.”
There are those who use this verse in Mark 13 as an argument against the study of prophecy since, they claim, even the Lord Jesus does not know the day of His return. Therefore it is useless for us to search the Scriptures for indications of when He will return, since He would not have been able to give us such information!
To me, such a notion that the verse is teaching that Christ is in ignorance of the day of His return is quite ludicrous and contrary to, indeed it is nothing short of a denial of, the truth regarding the deity and the Godhead of Christ. Read more…

Evangelical quits Church of England leadership over ‘heretical’ stance on sexuality
While we commend this lady for her actions, we must say that the command of Holy Scripture is not “move toward the gate of the camp” but rather: “Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach,” Hebrews 13:13. Separating from a committee of the apostate Church of England does not fulfil this commend. There must be an utter separating from all fellowship with it. “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,” 2 Corinthians 6:17.

Australians vote in favour of legalising same-sex marriage
While we feel shame at Australia’s decision and for the actions and attitudes of all who think likewise here in the UK, it is not so with those who vote “Yes” to this evil thing!
“Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the LORD,” Jeremiah 6:15.
There will be a visitation for this, more terrible than men can conceive. “They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed,” Luke 17:27-30. Read the ITV news article.

The web of lies that entangles Ulster

The synopsis of a sermon preached in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church on Sabbath evening, September 11th, 1994, By Rev Ivan Foster
(A warning issued 23 years ago of the deceit and lies at work on the subject of ‘peace’ in Ulster!!)
There are times when the finger must be pointed and the lie exposed. The cause of truth in a time of deception demands that a most vigorous witness be maintained. When there is a babble of voices proclaiming the lie the servant of God must be all the more strident in order to ensure that his voice rises above the lie. We live in just such a day. The fabric of national life is riddled with the woodworm of deception and falsehood. Politics, religion, business, every strata of the nation’s affairs is corrupted by untruths. A great deception is being wrought especially upon the Ulster people in the realm of religion and the constitutional future of our province. Read more…or click here to listen.

New Stormont battle as DUP calls for imminent move to direct rule
Sinn Fein’s present strategy is not the re-establishing of power-sharing at Stormont but the introducing of some form of ‘joint rule’ by London and Dublin.
They seek to create a crisis by ever stymieing the ‘Stormont talks’ with the DUP and from the sidelines, calling for Dublin and London to intervene in concert and replace Stormont Rule.
Sinn Fein has ever sought to undermine Northern Ireland’s Union with Great Britain and this was the reason behind their push for ‘power-sharing’ in 2006 at which the DUP, in its greed for power, jumped. Now power-sharing has run its course so Sinn Fein is presently pushing for a further step in its long term plan to destroy Northern Ireland but now by creating a further crisis. Because their 30-years of terrorist tactics failed and ‘power-sharing’ did not produce the fruits that Republicans hoped it would, the latest objective is joint Dublin-London rule, a short step from a Dublin take-over.
