Jeremiah 30 – The future fulfilment of its prophetic teachings

By Rev Ivan Foster

I recently was at a meeting in which Dr John Douglas was preaching the first message in a series entitled: “The Land and the Book – God’s future dealings with Israel.” He introduced his subject by saying that Jeremiah chapters 30-33 are a mini “Apocalypse”. The parallel is there for all to see! The opening words of Jeremiah 30:1 remind us very much of Revelation 1:1. Just look at the opening verses of both portions and you will see a link. Read more

Not a word of regret . . . not a word of apology . . . . but every attempt to justify, explain away and glorify  . . . the killers

The following is a speech delivered by TUV leader Jim Allister during yesterday’s (5th November, 2013) debate in Stormont’s Parlimentary Buildings, Belfast, on terrorism in the Castlederg area.

The two great cities of Scripture

By Rev Ivan Foster

This is a message given at one of the monthly meetings of The Sovereign Grace Advent Testimony in London, 26th January 1992.

I wish to state very clearly that I believe God has an eternal purpose. Of course, such a doctrine is not new amongst those who support the Sovereign Grace Advent Testimony. The Westminster Confession of Faith states in chapter 3, paragraph 1, “God from all eternity did by the most wise and holy counsel of His Own will freely and unchangeably ordain whatsoever comes to pass.” The decree of God embraces all things that shall ever come to pass. Nothing comes as a surprise to God. Nothing ever happens that is outside His decreed will. Read more

Missionary report from Spain

by  Rev. Lyle Boyd.

An atheist’s empty boasting

“Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth,” Proverbs 27:1, KJV.

An Irish biopsychologist, Dr Nigel Barber, believes that religion will be all but replaced by 2041! Dr Nigel Barber’s new book, published earlier this year, “Why atheism will replace religion” says the market for formal religions is being reduced by modern substitutes such as sport and entertainment, especially in more developed countries. Barber pointed out that atheists are more concentrated in richer countries and religion will decrease as personal wealth increases. Of religious groups Barber said, “Noisy as they can be, such groups are tiny minorities of the global population and they will become even more marginalised as global prosperity increases and standards of living improve.” Read more

Dr Joel Beeke Recommends a Book on Contemplative Prayer!!

It is difficult to believe that any professing Christian could ever be deceived into thinking that ‘Soul Recreation’, written by Tom Schwanda deserved their glowing commendation. And yet this is exactly what Dr Joel Beeke has done by posting the following recommendation on his Reformation Heritage Books website! (Link to RHB website)

“While mystical ideas must always be sifted with biblical discernment, it is undeniable that the Reformed and Puritan tradition contains a richly experiential emphasis on delighting in God through Christ. Tom Schwanda has done us a great service in probing that tradition in this study of Isaac Ambrose in his historical context. He offers a nuanced explanation of Ambrose’s view of being ravished with Christ, the Bridegroom of the church. He . . . encourages evangelicals to return to our Reformed roots in order to grow in authentic spirituality.” —Joel R. Beeke-President of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids

What Dr Beeke has omitted to say is that Schwanda’s book not only considers and draws on the teachings of Ambrose, Calvin and commendable others, but he also promotes and encourages evangelicals to imitate the practices of The Desert Fathers, Ignatius of Loyola, (yes, founder of the Jesuit Order!!!) Richard Foster, Thomas Merton, and other apostates, whose mystical teachings are based on New Age/occult philosophies.

Why are men so trusting of this man despite the accumulating evidence of his compromise and disobedience to God’s Word? Read more here

Beeke in bad company – and taking good men with him!!

In September past, Joel Beeke was advertised as preaching at Bell Creek Community Church in Livonia, Michigan, USA.

The church website contains quite a bit of information about itself. For instance, under one link it tells us “What happens during the church service?” “Each week is different, but some common elements include the following: Uplifting worship by a great band.” Read more

The candle burns low

There were two news items which made the headlines in the United Kingdom recently and which are indicators of the spiritual and moral downward spiral of the nation.

God, in His mercy, through the labours of men such as William Tyndale, the translator of the first English Bible, caused the light of His holy Word to shine brightly in our nation, more brightly than in many other nations. It was William Tyndale who said to a blaspheming, ignorant popish priest: “If God spare my life ere many years, I will cause the boy that drives the plough to know more of the scriptures than you!” Read more

Roman Catholic participation in Refo500 – a fruit of its ecumenical approach

Refo500 was an ecumenical organisation from its commencement as this blog article, which includes a speech by a Roman Catholic Bishop, from a Refo500 press conference in the Netherlands in February 2010 proves conclusively. The ecumenism of the organisation did not merely develop over time, but was foundational in the approach of Refo500 to the Reformation.

It is difficult to accept that anyone could be directly involved in such an organisation and be fully engaged as a partner at the North American launch, as was Dr Joel Beeke, and not be aware of its ecumenical nature!

Roman Catholic participation in Refo500 – a fruit of its ecumenical approach

Refo500 was an ecumenical organisation from its commencement as this blog article, which includes a speech by a Roman Catholic Bishop, from a Refo500 press conference in the Netherlands in February 2010 proves conclusively. The ecumenism of the organisation did not merely develop over time, but was foundational in the approach of Refo500 to the Reformation.

It is difficult to accept that anyone could be directly involved in such an organisation and be fully engaged as a partner at the North American launch, as was Dr Joel Beeke, and not be aware of its ecumenical nature!

No lie is of the truth

Despite the plainest of documented evidence, there are those amongst Fundamentalists who refuse to see that Dr Joel Beeke has established and maintained links with those whose teaching and practices are contrary to the Word of God.

Abuse has been directed at Ralph Ovadal of Pilgrim Covenant Church and me for daring to raise on radio programmes and articles on both our internet sites, the issue of Dr Beeke’s associations. The latest abuse is contained in a letter written by a brother in Christ to a Christian lady who contacted this minister, asking about the assertions that brother Ovadal and I had made regarding Dr Beeke. The minister’s response was to state that our allegations regarding Dr Beeke were false and specifically that Ralph Ovadal was telling lies. That is a serious matter indeed and must be answered. There are times when a believer is required to “suffer in silence” and bear reproach but there are times when to remain silent is to appear to give credence to false accusations. In Matthew 26:61-64, you have the Saviour remaining silent as false accusations were thrown at Him, but answering when He was asked the question by the high priest: “I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God,” verse 63. For Christ to have remained silent would have appeared that He was denying His divinity and so He answered. “Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven,” verse 64.

Likewise, it was necessary to refute publicly the false allegations and respond to this unjustified and unsubstantiated attack upon the integrity of two ministers of the gospel contained in this minister’s letter.

Please read carefully all the information set forth in Ralph Ovadal’s reply and investigate the evidence set forth in the programmes and articles, the links to which are included in this article.

Sincerely in Christ,

Rev Ivan Foster (Retired)

IT DOES NOT TAKE MUCH TO WORK RUIN!!

The danger of tolerating sin in the Church.

An article based upon sermons preached by Rev Ivan Foster in September 1995. (Listen using the players below)

“Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?” 1 Corinthians 5:6.

Man by nature is insensitive to sin but the Lord is not! Man will see little cause for concern about that which deeply grieves and angers the Lord. Those who seek to share the Lord’s view of sin will often be seen as those who make “mountains out of molehills”. Their concerns are deemed an unnecessary disturbance of the peace of the Church.

This sad truth is illustrated by the incident recorded in 1 Corinthians 5. Paul did not share the deplorable view to which we have referred. He was determined to disturb the sinful tranquillity of the Church at Corinth. Read more

“And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived,” Revelation 18:23.

This article, based upon a sermon preached at the evening service in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church some 20 years ago on 28th March, 1993, was prompted by a recent spate of newspaper reports on drug-related deaths in Northern Ireland of which this news report is an example.

The Bible tells us just what is the source of drug-abuse and who it is promotes it and to what end it is promoted. The finger is pointed straight at the Devil! Read more

Holiness: Its Nature, Hindrances, Difficulties, and Roots

by Bishop J C Ryle, (1816 – 1900)

This is the fourth chapter from JC Ryle’s book on Holiness and is worthy of our consideration. It highlights the the struggle, the battle that is involved in living for God in a wicked world.

The attitude of all too many believers toward the holy commandments of God is that of Saul and the Israelites toward the command given the king of God, regarding the slaying of the Amalekites and all that was theirs. Where they were in agreement with the commands of God they obeyed, but where their carnal appetites and desires differed from God they defied Him and yielded to their own cravings. So it is oftentimes with God’s people. Where they disagree with God’s law they find reasons to defy it and indulge their fleshly desires. There are some things they see “no harm” in and so refuse to obey. Such picking and choosing angers God and brings down His judgment on the disobedient. “It repenteth me that I have set up Saul to be king: for he is turned back from following me, and hath not performed my commandments,” 1 Samuel 15:11.

Bishop Ryle shows the battle that is involved in yielding full obedience to God and following the path of holiness. May we be given the grace enjoyed by Joshua and Caleb and “wholly” follow the LORD, Numbers 32:12.   Read more…

An example from Australia of the dreadful suffering endured by Roman Catholic families at the hands of pervert priests and the deceitful, lying hierarchy

Nothing could be further removed from the merciful dealings of the God of Heaven with sinful men than the ‘Roman Catholic Church’.

In recent times, the most horrific revelations have been disclosed of what takes place behind the walls of her institutions and chapels worldwide. The cesspool of iniquity thus uncovered is nothing compared to the final revelation of her satanic activities and corruptions when God shall remove the veil of her pretended ‘holiness’!

She is the foremost element in that dreadful Antichristian amalgam portrayed in Revelation 17:4-6. “And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: and upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.”

John Gill comments on the final statement in those verses – i.e. the writer John’s ‘admiration’ or ‘amazement, astonishment, wonderment’ : “it was astonishing to him that one bearing the name of a Christian church should rise to such grandeur; and he wondered at the name upon her forehead, what the whole of that inscription should mean; but, above all, at her drunkenness with the blood of the saints; at her inhumanity and cruelty, being as savage as the beast she rode on; and also at God’s forbearance of her, that He, Who is a pure and holy Being, a lover of His saints, an avenger of His elect, should suffer such a brutish, barbarous, and bloodthirsty creature, to live upon earth.”

There are few who see Romanism as such today but a day is coming when all the world will see her for what she is.

Is it ever right to do what former generations considered improper?

The New Golden Boys in the Military

written by Lt. Colonel John Lewis Cook, USA (ret.)

Just when you think the Obama administration cannot possibly engage in any more stupid, embarrassing episodes, you suddenly discover that you are wrong. This administration’s capacity for insanity appears to be limitless. The latest example of this occurred on Tuesday when the Pentagon hosted something called the Second Annual Gay Appreciation Day.

Pope Francis shows his true colours

By Richard Bennet.

Pope Francis’s performances and writings give a picture of a man that is two-faced. To build a public image for himself, Bergoglio, once elected, chose the name Pope Francis in honor of St Francis of Assisi. St Francis was known to be a softhearted lover of nature; thus, Pope Francis adroitly implied that he would be similarly unassuming, kind, and harmless. Then following his election, he paid his own hotel bill for his stay during the enclave. He then took up residence, not in the usual papal apartments, but rather in a smaller more humble suite. On the other hand, from his first speech and subsequent presentations, he has shown himself as a totalitarian dictator. Thus, as the media and many ecumenical Evangelicals fawn over Pope Francis, it is necessary to biblically analyze his speeches and performances. The mind boggling conclusions are documented in the attached article. Read more

Will we never learn?

As one who has vivid memories of the Terence O’Neill campaign against Bible Protestantism in the early and mid-60s, I see much that is reminiscent of that time of betrayal, which was seeded by the foolish notions of the ecumenical church leaders back then. Read more

When lightning flashes this is not what you want to see!

This is a picture that someone took who works on an oil rig. He was going to take a picture of the lightning and was unaware of the tornado until the lightning illuminated it.

This picture, sent to me by my friend Ralph Ovadal, is a wonderful illustration of the great mercy of God to careless unthinking sinners.

This lightning flash is so like that flash of divine light which shows the sinner the danger he faces, the danger he was utterly unaware of until that light from heaven shone down and in a moment informed him of that which the witness of friends had been unable to get across.

What a difference 25 years make!!!

Stealing away our children“How are the mighty fallen, and the weapons of war perished!” 2 Samuel 1:27.

The following article – “Stealing away our children” – was produced by the Presbytery Education Board and circulated amongst Free Presbyterians some 25 years ago. The government proposals it exposed were greatly stymied and resisted so that they never truly got off the ground as it was hoped, chiefly because they were opposed in the educational and political arena by Free Presbyterians loyal to the teaching of the Word of God. However, those very proposals form the bedrock of what it is that the Democratic Unionist Party has now embraced and which it would have Ulster Protestant parents adopt with open arms. Read more

See a copy of the original article here.

When Elijah comes

“Elias Truly Shall First Come” (Matthew 17:11). Thus spake Immanuel, the Greatest of all the Prophets, reminding us of the certainty that Elijah shall come again to the earth before the Lord returns in glory. Few realise the wondrous fact that Elijah is coming in the weakness of the flesh, though with super-natural powers, to testify to the truth of thee Scriptures in the last days. The coming of Elijah is mentioned several times in the Scriptures. In Malachi we find the plain and clear statement that Elijah shall come before the Lord Jesus is revealed in judgment (Malachi 4:5). The disciples believed, though they did not then fully understand this Scripture. Therefore they were perplexed, and asked the Lord, in effect, “As Thou art the Christ, why has not Elijah first come?” They were not then able to distinguish clearly between the first and second comings of the Lord.
