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

The Mastermind behind the modern drugs craze

“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.

The following document is the personal testimony of a father and mother who have encountered firsthand the bitterness of life under Popery. Read more

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

or, “A plea for the old paths”.
“Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein,” Jeremiah 6:16.
The drift that takes place amongst the professing people of God from generation to generation is a matter of Biblical record. Who, as a serious student of God’s Word, has not read with trembling the words found in Judges chapter 2? Read more

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.

“Popish Octopus with a Very Long Reach”

A brand new, thoroughly researched, fact-packed documentary on Refo500 by Pastor Ralph Ovadal with a short closing commentary by Rev. Ivan Foster.

To read the text of Rev. Foster’s closing comments in this broadcast, click here.

“Impartial Reporter”, Enniskillen runs story with outrageous headline.

The “Impartial Reporter”, based in Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh and dating back to 1825, is deemed a family newspaper. It breached that status in its 5th June 2013 edition when it used the words of a foul-mouthed drunken lout as its headline for an article on the incident in which the lout was being questioned by the police regarding drunken driving.

Anyone who has read the newspaper will know the article in question.

Rev Ivan Foster emailed Mr Denzil McDaniels, the Editor to complain about the offensive headline and has also lodged a complaint with the Press Complaints Commission. Here is the email he sent with the link to the article removed for the sake of decency. Read more

The Renewal of the Near East

It is generally assumed that they have been; therefore, it is important to know the grounds for the assertion that they are unfulfilled. You will observe that in chapter 13, A City — Babylon — is chiefly considered. In chapter 14, A Person — Antichrist — the king of that City. Read more

Why We Believe in Total Depravity

A message preached by Rev Ivan Foster at a Sovereign Grace Advent Testimony meeting, London, May 24th, 2013.

“And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man,” Mark 7:20-23.

Rev Robert Ormerod dies in sad circumstances

“One day we will all see him again because we will all see him in heaven” – his son Timothy

Robert_OrmerodLong-serving Free Presbyterian minister from Northern Ireland has died in an accident on the M6 in the north of England. The Rev Robert Ormerod, minister of Cloughmills Free Presbyterian Church, was driving between visits to family members in Birmingham and Coventry yesterday when he suddenly took ill.
Speaking on behalf of his devastated family, the Rev Ormerod’s son Timothy last night said they were all in complete shock. “He had a heart attack and died at the wheel while driving,” he said. “The biggest thing we can hold to is that he is in heaven, he’s a saved man, we can rest assured that whatever pain and suffering he had, there is none now because he is in heaven with Jesus. “And one day we will all see him again because we will all see him in heaven.”
The Rev Ormerod served as minister of Cloughmills Free Presbyterian Church for more than 30 years. He also served as the Convenor of Government and Morals Committee within the Free Presbyterian Church.
He is survived by his wife Julie, their sons Jonathan and Timothy, and daughters Naomi, Hannah and Danielle. All who knew and appreciated his labours as a minister and as the Convenor of Government and Morals Committee will miss his witness in the Presbytery and the wider church.

Our glorious hope

by Alan Toms.

Believers are promised special strength for those days (known as the ‘Great Tribulation’ and also as ‘The Time of Jacob’s Trouble’, for Israel will suffer too). In fact, I believe it is when Israel’s suffering is at its height and Jerusalem is at the point of final destruction that the Lord will appear to deliver her and bring peace to the earth. This is not the ‘end of the world’ but the time when the Lord Jesus takes His place as King of the Jews and all nations for one thousand years. This is known as the Millennium. After this age the Judgment of the Great White Throne will take place and then the world as we know it will be destroyed.

Israel’s Messiah King

A study in Psalm 45. A message preached by Rev Ivan Foster at the Sovereign Grace Advent Testimony evening meeting in London, 23rd April, 2010. There is a natural sequence from the close of the previous Psalm 44 (see previous article) to the opening of this Psalm 45. Psalm 44 ends with Israel crying upon the Lord to arise to the aid of His people as they face destruction under Antichrist. “Arise for our help, and redeem us for thy mercies’ sake,” Psalm 44:26. This Psalm 45 carries us even further into the future than did the previous. In this psalm the Saviour has come and it is no longer Antichrist who is reigning. Christ has taken unto Himself His great power and rules and reigns amongst the kingdoms of this world.

Israel’s time of trouble under Antichrist

A study in Psalm 44. This is a familiar psalm, the contents of which have provided much support and comfort to the people of God in this New Testament era as the Church of Christ has appropriated this psalm to itself. What truth there is in verses 1-8.

Democracy versus God

  • Democracy may be defined as “popular government by the will of the people.”
  • Given that the will of man is fallen and depraved as a result of Adam’s transgression, it will be easily seen that a clash with the mind and will of Jehovah is inevitable.
  • The final conflict in this world will be between the will of the people and the will of God.
