DUP somersaults on the plan to limit open-air preaching in Belfast

Alderman Kingston hypocritically makes no mention of his support at the first for the plan in his latest statement

DUP Councillors on Belfast City Council have called for a reconsideration of proposed new bye-laws which would affect buskers, street preachers, protestors and information stalls in the city centre area.

DUP Group Leader, Alderman Brian Kingston, said that the DUP would be proposing at the Council meeting on Monday, 1st November, that the matter be referred back to Committee rather than progressing on to consultation with statutory bodies. Click to read more…

Christians opposed to Belfast City Council plan to limit open-air prepare a briefing on the subject

Following on the news about the Belfast City Council’s plan to limit open-air preaching, concerned Christians have prepared a briefing on the subject.

Briefing Note: Belfast City Council

City Centre Speech Permits – October 2021

The proposal involves two key issues within city centre.

1. Permits for amplification.
2. Permits for stalls, literature, and other display materials.

Some have felt this necessary because of some complaints involving Christian and LGBT activists, pro-life groups, and buskers.

This briefing note lays out several reasons why permits are not the correct way to handle this problem. It also demonstrates some further problems speech permits will create.

Free speech as a principle

The British tradition, especially, after the Glorious Revolution has valued freedom of conscience, civil and religious liberty. This is enshrined in law and practice.

You do have a right not to be threatened by speech. However, you do not have a right to be comfortable or not offended by speech. If offence was an offence – no one would be able to speak freely. The right to offend is not just a moral right but a legal one.

The very use of the word “permit” suggests that the Council has the authority to determine free expression in the public square. No public body has the moral authority to deny rights to citizens or organisations and there is no doubt this will be tried in court.

David Attenborough - wrong from beginning to end!


A headline of a report of David Attenborough’s latest climate change prediction reads: “End of the world: David Attenborough sends ‘catastrophic’ warning: ‘Not false alarm!’”

Mr Attenborough is well known for his nature programmes on television, all of which are enjoyable as long as you do not listen to his comments on the origins of the various creatures featured in them!

Attenborough is an ardent believer in ‘Evolution’, that is, the world that now is and all that is in it evolved out of a ‘beginning’ which neither he nor any of his deluded compatriots can agree on! Consequently, his programmes are filled with gratuitous misinformation and downright fairy tales.

He ‘explains’ away the wonders of God’s creation and substitutes his daft notions of the creature altering itself over countless millions of years to meet the challenges it faced. Just how, when it took so long for the creature to change in order to survive, it did not succumb to the threat long before it was able to ‘evolve’ to cope with the threat that it faced, he and his ilk never explain!

The Christian believes the Bible’s record of how things began. Genesis 1 and 2 give us full details of the supernatural origins of the physical creation and of the human race. Supportive evidence of that account is everywhere to be found. An abundance of the gatherings of that evidence may be found on hundreds, if not thousands of websites. Some are much more worthy than others it is freely acknowledged. But convincing and conclusive rebuttals of the falsehoods of ‘evolution’ may easily be found in book or website form.

Thoughts on the history of professing Christianity, Part 2

We continue with extracts from Benjamin Wills Newton’s book, Prospects of the Ten Kingdoms, the chapter 6 — THOUGHTS ON THE HISTORY OF PROFESSING CHRISTIANITY, AS GIVEN IN THE PARABLES OF MATTHEW XIII.

Here is Part 2, which covers pages 151 to 156.

Click here to see the other articles about this book.

They are as a house swept and garnished, but empty. The truth and Spirit of Christ are not there. It is a mansion unoccupied; open therefore to be entered, as it soon will be entered, by that unclean spirit, which, after long wandering up and down, and finding no other people so suited for his designs, will, with seven other spirits more wicked than himself, again make that people his peculiar habitation. Then will be developed the full iniquity of the closing hours of our dispensation. These words have almost entirely failed to arrest the attention of real Christians. Many appear not to know that the Lord has spoken them. Else they could not as they do, “cleave to Israel with flatteries,” and tell them that they are advancing into their millennial rest, when in truth, they are fast approaching the great hour of their anti-Christian evil and final visitation from the hand of God. The chapter, however, which thus records the doom of unbelieving Israel, does not conclude without referring to another family which the Lord Jesus could, and did own as His, at the very moment when He was thus rejecting Israel. “He stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said: Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother and sister, and mother.” All, therefore, in whom the spiritual characteristics of Abraham shall be found-all who shall believe and obey, shall be owned as the family of God, whilst Israel nationally are rejected.

Samuel Morrison -- "I thank God for Northern Ireland. It’s just a shame no one on Thursday could manage to say that."

This is a very good letter which was published today in ‘The Belfast Newsletter’ and is worthy to be read and circulated by all who remember with joy what the Lord did through and for our forefathers in the time of the ‘Home Rule Crisis’!

I am sorry the Queen is unwell but do not regret the fact she missed the Armagh service, which barely acknowledged Northern Ireland or its losses.

The most striking thing about the service in Armagh was the total avoidance of any suggestion by any of the church leaders that the creation of Northern Ireland was something which should be celebrated. Click to read more…

Belfast City Council to limit open-air preaching in city centre

This is an edited version of a report in the ‘Belfast Newsletter’, Saturday 23rd October, 2021.


Belfast City Council is set to give powers to the PSNI to fine street preachers £500 if they use amplification systems without a council permit in the wider city centre.

All parties (this included the DUP – BB Editor) on the council’s Strategic Policy and Resource Committee agreed yesterday morning to approve draft bye laws that would require preachers, protestors, buskers and anyone else using amplification systems in the wider city centre to apply for a permit or be fined £500 by the PSNI or council officers.

Our Reply to Gregory Campbell

Letter sent to the Belfast Newsletter, 5.35 pm, Saturday 23rd October 2021, by Rev Ivan Foster.


In a letter to your newspaper, dated Thursday 21st October, Mr Gregory Campbell penned these words:

“Again there are those who want to abandon those values while there are others who demand that previous ways of upholding those values are the only way to proceed. The former is wrong and the latter is unsustainable.”

The ‘values’ he is referring to he identifies a few lines earlier in his letter as “a moral value system that is being attacked on a regular basis. It needs defending within the changing times we all live in.”

I assume that he is referring to the morals proclaimed by the gospel since Mr Campbell is a professing evangelical Christian. Click to read more…

Free Presbyterian Church -- Take Heed!

A very good friend in the USA sent me the link mounted below. It is a report of the compromise and the departure from God’s Word by the Presbyterian Church in America which is not yet 50 years old! It is a report to which we all should take heed.

Here is a plain warning to the Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster with regards the inevitable fruit of compromise and failure to judge breaches in the standards of God’s Word by members because of a sheltering of them by compatriots due to their prominence!

SJC Rules on Complaint Against Missouri Presbytery

The Presbyterian Church of America was considered a theologically conservative U.S. evangelical Presbyterian denomination when founded in 1973. The PCA has its roots in theological controversies over liberalism in Christianity and neo-orthodoxy that had been a point of contention in the Presbyterian Church in the U. S. In December 1973, delegates, representing some 260 congregations with a combined communicant membership of over 41,000 that had left the PCUS, gathered at Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, Alabama, and organised the National Presbyterian Church, which later became the Presbyterian Church in America.

However, despite being only 50 years old, it has succumbed to evil within its ranks with its latest decision to endorse the ordination of one who confesses to be ‘homosexual’. Click to read more…

Pictures of the October 21st protest at Armagh

Here are pictures of Christians protesting at the Centenary Service in Armagh yesterday (Thursday 21st).  We honour their stand taken in full view of those attending the service.

This will also refute the excuse, used by some Free Presbyterians, for not protesting against the ecumenical event and the sad betrayal of God’s truth by the First Minister, Mr Paul Givan, that such would be the security in Armagh that no protest would be possible.

May the Lord bless those who for His honour stood in protest at the ecumenism of it all and who called for a rejection of abortion.

Sincerely in Christ,
Ivan Foster

Statement regarding Mr. Paul Givan's attendance at Armagh service

Statement from Rev Ivan Foster (Rtd), former minister of Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church, on the attendance of Mr Paul Givan, a Free Presbyterian, at the centenary service in Armagh, held under the auspices of the combined apostate denominations here in Ulster.

Poor, foolish Paul Givan had little to smile about as he enters the apostate Armagh service and thus betrays the gospel and turns his back upon the truth of God that has been the foundation of the separatist stand of the Free Presbyterian Church since it beginnings in 1951!

By attending this service Mr Givan has put personal and political considerations before his professed allegiance to the Lord. Click to read more…

Statement by the Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster

STATEMENT FROM THE FREE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH OF ULSTER on the Ecumenical Centenary Service in Armagh, Thursday 21st October, 2021.

I wish to make a comment on the fact that our Presbytery Officers have decided that there will be no protest at the above ungodly ecumenical gathering, which has ostentatiously expropriated the centenary of the stand taken by our Protestant forefathers against the political sell-out of our heritage attempted by the British government, and that into the hands of a Roman Catholic dominated ‘United “Ireland’.

All that this ecumenical ‘celebration’ entails would have been anathema to our forbears of 1912 and 1921.

In 1951, the Free Presbyterian Church was brought into existence by the Lord in order to PROTEST against the wickedness of the ecumenical movement. Most certainly for the first 50+ years it was faithful and fervent in that calling. However, its opposition to the modernism and the liberalism and the pro-popish direction taken by the Church of Ireland, Presbyterian and Methodist churches in Ireland since the late 1940s, has most decidedly waned over the last couple of decades. (see Questions for the Free Presbyterian Church)

Much has been made of the security measures that undoubtedly will be in place for this ecumenical service and the difficulties they would present to any who wish to get into Armagh and anywhere near the cathedral to protest. Click to read more…

Are the days of protest over?

Of late, I have been given to understand that there are those ministers in the Free Presbyterian Church who would seek to impress upon younger ministers and students that such is the case.

I would suggest that for those who say this, the days of protest never existed! To protest exposed one to reproach and shame, even the shame of the cross and that is not for the modern ‘evangelical’! Furthermore, someone might challenge them about their protest and claim it was ‘unchristian’ and ‘lacking in love’ and since they didn’t really believe that they should be protesting, how would they put up a defence?

Better to stay at home and hide under the bed in such circumstances!

Well, Holy Scripture teaches us that ‘the days of protest’ are not over and will continue for the true and faithful believer until the return of the Saviour Himself. Click to read more…

Thoughts on the history of professing Christianity, Part 1

Following our recent series of extracts from chapter 14 of Benjamin Wills Newton’s book, ‘Prospects of the Ten Kingdoms’, which we concluded last week, and the good reception they received, I felt that I would like to feature extracts from the 6th chapter of the book which deals with a matter facing us all today — that of the corruption and apostasy of ‘PROFESSING CHRISTIANITY’ as set forth by the Saviour in His parables in Matthew 13. I am sure that you will find the extracts informative.

Sincerely, Ivan Foster

We continue with extracts from Benjamin Wills Newton’s book, Prospects of the Ten Kingdoms, the chapter 6 — THOUGHTS ON THE HISTORY OF PROFESSING CHRISTIANITY, AS GIVEN IN THE PARABLES OF MATTHEW XIII.

Here is Part 1, which covers pages 148-151.

Click here to see the other articles about this book.

THE subject of the book of Daniel is the secular history of the Gentile Empires in their relation to Jerusalem, and not the history of Christianity. In considering, therefore, the history of Christianity, we deviate from the strict course of this prophecy. But it is a deviation that may be permitted. Not only is the subject in itself unspeakably important, but it is closely connected also with all we have been considering. The full character of evil that attaches to the Roman Empire cannot be understood unless its false relations to Christianity be in some degree appreciated. Moreover, although the ripened evil of Judaism, and of the nations governmentally, will largely contribute towards the final development of Antichristianism, yet it will be aided no less by an apostasy from among professing Christians. Thus also we answer an objection often urged, viz., that by our interpreting the Old Testament prophecies so exclusively of Israel and of the Gentiles, we leave nothing in Scripture that bears directly on Christianity. We show that the Scripture does speak prophetically of Christianity, and of its corruptions. Click to read more…

Letter to the Belfast Newsletter

The following letter was submitted today to the Belfast Newsletter.


It is more than ironic that the ecumenical leaders of the main churches here have hi-jacked the centenary of the founding of Northern Ireland. The refusal by Ulster Protestants to accede to the campaign for ‘Home Rule’ which led to the formation of Northern Ireland, was based upon their perception that such would mean ‘Rome Rule’!

I wonder will any mention of that be made during the service? I doubt it very much!

Of course, what ‘Home Rule’ failed to do 100 years ago, the deception and hypocrisy of ‘Ecumenism’ have accomplished today, and nothing proves this more clearly than next Thursday’s service in Armagh!

Rev Ivan Foster (Rtd)
Kilskeery, Co.Tyrone.

Questions for the Free Presbyterian Church


Thursday 21st October, 2021.

One of the biggest ecumenical gatherings in Ireland will take place in Armagh on 21st October, less than a week away. As is the case with all ecumenical gatherings, it is a fraud and a deceit. Organised by the “Church Leaders Group”, it is a hi-jacking of the centenary of an event that was the rejection by Ulster’s Protestant men and women of all things that characterise today’s ecumenical movement.

The ‘patron’ of ecumenism is the devil who “was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it,” John 8:44. The ecumenical movement is representative of all that is ungodly and antichristian in this world today. Within its ranks are churches which promote sodomy, ordaining men and women who are sodomites, to serve in their pulpits. It embraces every false and blasphemous heresy known to man and of course is utterly pro-Romanist!

One of its leading members has just resigned from the Church of England and joined the Church of Rome. As one headline puts it: ‘Anglican bishop of Ebbsfleet resigns to join Roman Catholic church.’ (https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/sep/03/anglican-bishop-of-ebbsfleet-resigns-to-join-roman-catholic-church)

His action foreshadows just where Ecumenism is going! Click to read more…

Seeking for God's intervention!

The Government and Morals Committee of the Free Presbyterian Church has called for a season of prayer for Saturday 30th October. It is to seek God’s intervention in the affairs of our nation.  There have been other such prayer seasons in recent times.

A day of intercession and prayer in our present circumstances is very welcome and very proper. However, when we set out to seek the Lord it must be done with His requirements and commands very much in mind.

There have been prayers offered to the Lord by God’s people which were not heard by Him. “And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool,” Isaiah 1:15-18.

Maybe it is time to ask: “Has the Lord been answering our prayers?”

Sin in our hearts, in our lives, in our midst will stop our prayers being heard and therefore from receiving an answer. Click to read more…

Prospects of the Ten Kingdoms - Part 14 (final section)

We come to the final section of this chapter copied from Benjamin Wills Newton’s quite wonderful book: “Prospects of the Ten Kingdoms”. I truly hope it has been a great help to you all.

The topic of the ten Kingdoms of the Antichrist will become increasingly important for God’s people to study and understand since any who become entangled with it will pay a dreadful price.

“And all that dwell upon the earth (i.e. the ‘the old Roman Empire’) shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world . . . And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name,” Revelation 13:8, 14:11.

Damnation is the price that will be paid by any deceived into an allegiance with the kingdom of anti-christianity.

Given the blindness that is abroad today regarding the errors of the liberal and modernistic ‘gospel’ eagerly embraced by the main denominations and the zealous pursuit of money and the spirit of the merchants that is everywhere, the vast majority of people are more than ripe for the plucking by the devil and his agents!

Guildford IRA bomb family demands answers

Guildford IRA bomb wreckage

EVERYWHERE it seems, we read of IRA crimes and government and police stupidity being covered up and every obstacle that the ‘powers that be’ can muster are placed in the path of justice for the victims!

As in days gone by so it is today:

“‭And judgment‭ is turned away‭‭ backward‭, and justice‭ standeth‭‭ afar off‭: for truth‭ is fallen‭‭ in the street‭, and equity‭ cannot‭‭ enter‭‭.,” Isaiah 59:14.‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

We would despair were we not sustained by the promise of God:

“‭Behold, the days‭ come‭‭, saith‭‭ the LORD‭, that I will raise‭‭ unto David‭ a righteous‭ Branch‭, and a King‭ shall reign‭‭ and prosper‭‭, and shall execute‭‭ judgment‭ and justice‭ in the earth‭.,” Jeremiah 23:5.‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

Pity this lady and her friends who seek justice in the case of the murder of their loved ones by the IRA and the cover up that is in place!

Most sincerely in the Saviour’s name,

Ivan Foster

Moral perversion in London's police

Openly gay Met commissioner Dame Cressida Dick says she’s not stepping down

I send out this article with weariness of soul and a great measure of reluctance.

I feel that I have not the inclination nor the time any more to take up the plethora of reported incidents which press upon us all the indecency which pervades our society today.  Nor do I feel that you, as those who desire to turn away their eyes from evil, have the inclination to have such things pressed upon you.

I believe it is approaching the time to “shake off the dust” of our feet with regards the many denominations and groups to whom innumerable warnings and exhortations have been addressed, and that without any God-honouring response.

Just what is the devout Christian to do in the circumstances which are rapidly developing around us?

I believe that Isaiah 26:20-21 offers us guidance on this matter. Click to read more…

Compromise at Bob Jones University conference

Dr Steven Lawson

Dr Steven Lawson is one of the featured speakers at Steven Lee’s SermonAudio Conference entitled “The Foundations Conference”, to be held at Bob Jones University in December. Other speakers include Dr Joel Beeke. Todd Friel, and most surprisingly, Dr Clarence Sexton , Dr Paul Washer, and Rev Armen Thomassian of Faith Free Presbyterian Church, Greenville SC, USA.

Rev Stephen Hamilton of Allentown Free Presbyterian Church, Pennsylvania, USA, makes the following comments on one of the leading speakers in this conference.

Dr Steven Lawson is hailed by many evangelicals today. He is a gifted preacher, no question. He has positioned himself as a defender of Biblical Truth, even at times referencing the Protestant Reformation. However, he is also a man who tends to speak out of both sides of his mouth.

Prospects of the Ten Kingdoms - Part 13

We come to Part 13, which covers from the bottom of page 360 to the top of page 365.

Click here to see the other articles about this book.

But however great the blessings of the millennial age, they still fall very short of the perfection of God. Sin, death, and occasional transgression, will yet be there, and repressive power (something unknown in heaven) will be perpetually needed, in order to prevent manifestations of evil, and sights of sorrow. The spirit therefore of the millennial saints will long for something more perfect yet to come. They will be taught, even as we, to look for New Heavens and a New Earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.*

(* In Isaiah lxv. 17, the subjects of joy and thanksgiving, presented to Israel at the commencement of their millennial blessing, are two — one future; the other, present. The final intention of God to create New Heavens and a New Earth, is first spoken of, and presented to them as an object of hope: next is mentioned, that which God will at that time be giving them, as a present joy; for at that time He will make Jerusalem and her people a joy.

Two statements marking DUP's 50th birthday!

Today marks the 50th anniversary of the start of the Democratic Unionist Party. Two statements related to that event appeared on the BBC Northern Ireland news site this morning.

One was by Baroness Paisley, widow of the late Dr Ian Paisley, the other was by Lord Hay of Londonderry.

The BBC report read:

‘In a statement, Baroness Paisley said the party’s “more recent tolerance of changing moral attitudes in society is a far cry from the code of practice Ian unashamedly espoused”.

“Yet, despite his clear and unequivocal views, the party grew to being the majority voice of the unionist people in this province. That is perhaps a lesson which today needs heeding.”

She added that “Ulster faces very uncertain days.” ’

We have no wish to be churlish, but the moral changes within the DUP over the last 50 years require a stronger condemnation than the words of the Baroness proffer. The changes could well be likened unto day giving way to night! Click to read more…

Its relation to Heaven and to the Earth during the Millennium, is analogous to that which the Holy Place occupied in the Temple. It was situate intermediately between the Holy of Holies and the external court where Israel worshipped. The Holy Place was the place of Priestly service, the place of intercession, the place where the golden Candlestick was set-the type of Christ, in that pure, perfect, unchanging heavenly light, wherewith, whether in Earth or Heaven, He hath shone and ever shineth for His people. All this, and more, the Heavenly City will be. Thence the regulations of God’s government, as well as the instructions of His grace, will reach Israel and the earth. “The nations shall walk by means of the light thereof, and the Kings of the Earth shall bring their glory and honour unto it.” There, also, remedial means will be provided for meeting the exigencies of mortal life below. In the vision of the City were seen Trees of Life; and “the leaves of the Trees were for the healing of the nations.” Click to read more…

Stormont hatred of righteousness displayed once again

What Jim Allister, leader of the ‘Traditional Unionist Voice’ party, correctly calls a ‘pan-nationalist front’, has once again united in support of convicted IRA criminals who presently hold positions with a publicly financed wage! This has been reported in today’s ‘Belfast Newsletter’.

TUV Political Appontments bill defeated

Mr Allister is quoted as saying after the defeat of his attempt to introduce a Bill in Stormont which would have prevented those with terrorist convictions being appointed to public bodies that the “pan-nationalist front of Alliance, the SDLP and Sinn Fein” had united to ensure Sinn Fein’s Paul Kavanagh could remain on the Education Authority, and that Gerry Kelly will keep his seat on the Policing Board.

He also said that it is difficult to view the police as an unbiased body when a convicted IRA bomber sits on its ‘watchdog’ committee!!

This is the situation which Sinn Fein, the SDLP and the Alliance parties are determined to see continue in Ulster. This has been a year in which the Bible-rejecting and anti-Unionist majority in Stormont has clearly demonstrated its bigoted attitude toward the Protestant people of Northern Ireland by opposing any significant recognition of the centenary of the founding of Northern Ireland!

The evil coalition of ‘Alliance, the SDLP and Sinn Fein’ is determined to crush every manifestation of our Protestant heritage. All three parties have shown support and sympathy for abortion and sodomy.

In this they have had the aid of the leaders of the Ecumenical churches. Under the headline: “Presbyterian moderator urges preservation of ‘precious’ powersharing government”, an article was recently published by ‘The Irish News’, an Irish nationalist newspaper. It is not surprising that the leaders of the apostasy see in any public body founded upon a partnership which includes Sinn Fein/IRA, something to be cherished and preserved!

The forming of the ‘power-sharing’ union between the DUP and Sinn Fein/IRA in Stormont in 2007 has resulted in what is now all too obvious — the dominant position of Irish Republicanism in the running of Ulster. Click to read more…

Ex-IRA gunrunner Gerry McGeough attacked while saying rosary at Cookstown Pride parade

A Free Presbyterian protest against the sodomite-glorifying parade in Cookstown on Saturday past, was one in which the Word of God condemning the wickedness for which He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, was publicly displayed.

On another part of the street, Irish Roman Catholicism was represented by a former IRA gunman, Gerry McGeough, and his friends engaging in the saying of the ‘Rosary’, that is praying to Mary, something strictly forbidden in the Word of God. But then what would you expect from an unrepentant former member of the IRA!!

The former gunman was punched in the face (there awaits him a much a more severe retribution in eternity from a hand more powerful than that of his female assailant) by a supporter of the sodomites who was acquainted with McGeough and had been engaged in a long-time dispute with him.

Answer to Mr. Cubitt

September 24, 2021 — It is obvious that this letter is not going to be published in the ‘Belfast Newsletter’.

I have wondered if the various media outlets receive some sort of ‘grant’ to promote the present vaccinations which were produced by the use of foetal tissue and gag any letters exposing the use of tissue from an aborted child in their manufacture .

(Letter submitted to “The Belfast Newsletter” on September 17, 2021)


As one who has refused the vaccinations presently on offer on the grounds that they have been produced or have been tested by the use of foetal material (an acknowledged fact), I see that Mr Cubitt has resorted to the logic of Nebuchadnezzar or indeed a Hitler with regards the forcing of others to submit to his idea of what is right. Both of these evil dictators denied to others the right of conscience.

I am against abortion. That was the position of 99% of the population when I was young. However, I failed to change my view on the subject when church and state persuaded a large number of folk to adopt a ‘liberal’ view of the slaughter of the unborn.

Now Mr Cubitt, one of that ‘enlightened liberal group’, calls for me and those like me to be forcefully vaccinated and that on the pretext that I do not ‘love my neighbour’!! Click to read more…

Prospects of the Ten Kingdoms - Part 11

We continue with our extracts from Benjamin Wills Newton’s book, Prospects of the Ten Kingdoms, the chapter 14 —


We come to Part 11, which covers from page 353 to the middle of page 356. A large portion of this extract is made up of a *note.

Click here to see the other articles about this book.

But whilst the saints individually and collectively, are thus filled with all fulness in Him; there will also be awarded to each, the individual meed of grace. Each will be placed before the tribunal *

* I have used the word tribunal in preference to judgment-seat, because less liable to misapprehension—the thought commonly connected with judgment-seat being that of arraignment as a criminal.

Indeed the thought of criminal arraignment ought to be connected with the ·”great white Throne,” before which the wicked dead raised at the close of the millennium will stand, to be judged out of things written in books according to their works. This is strictly judgment; but it is said that he who believeth shall not come into judgment. See John V. 24. All who have believed in Jesus previously to His return, will be raised in the first resurrection, and will reign with Him during the millennium: consequently, they will not stand before the great white Throne at all. Nor will the saints who live during the millennium stand before it to be arraigned, because the Book of Life will be opened, and their names will be found written there. Consequently, they too will not come into judgment. The prayer of every saint, in every dispensation must be, “Lord, enter not into judgment with Thy servant; for in Thy sight shall no man living be justified.” Click to read more…

"Party of civil rights" opposes right to Christian protest

This article was sent to me earlier today and I feel that there are interesting details within it which serve to highlight the utter hypocrisy of many in public as well as pointing the way in which society is moving with regards shutting down those voices and opinions with which it disagrees.

There is a growing animosity, in Church and State and amongst the general public who have been moulded by the opinions sanctioned and promoted by the two former institutions, toward any criticism of sodomy and its related perversions, especially those criticisms based upon the Word of God.

Sodom all around!

Another week begins and the ‘watchman’ must cry aloud once more: “‭Now‭ [it is] high time‭ to awake‭‭‭ out of‭ sleep‭: for‭ now‭ [is] our‭ salvation‭ nearer‭ than‭ when‭ we believed‭‭.‭ ‭The night‭ is far spent‭‭,‭ the day‭ is at hand‭‭: let us‭‭ therefore‭ cast off‭‭ the works‭ of darkness‭, and‭ let us put on‭‭ the armour‭ of light‭,” Romans 13:11-12.

The western world is rapidly becoming a virtual Sodom. That may be seen in the latest disgusting and stomach-turning report of the vileness enacted in the name of the Lord.

I just read in my daily reading this morning Ezekiel 16. There the prophet was required to set before the people of Jerusalem, just prior to their overthrow in judgment and the captivity by Babylon, the wickedness into which they had descended.

I commend the chapter to you and ask that you read it carefully. You will surely see that the spirit that is at work today in ‘Christendom’ was at work then, some 2600 years ago! Click to read more…

Pay-outs made to Claudy bombings families after report found ‘cover-up’ of IRA priest’s involvement

“Father” James Chesney

This story of the betrayal of the victims of the IRA in Claudy, Co. Tyrone, by the Royal Ulster Constabulary, the Northern Ireland Office and the British Government, in order to placate the Church of Rome and conceal its links, at the highest level, as this press report shows, with terrorism and murder, portrays just what the Ulster Protestant people have had to endure and the true face of Roman Catholicism!

It must be remembered that this took place at a time when the Roman Catholic Church and Irish Republicanism were claiming that the police force in Northern Ireland, and Protestants in general, were discriminating against the Roman Catholic Community!

Is that not the very essence of irony!

The British Government was in full cooperation in this evil machination, not only in covering up this horrendous crime but to the extent of sympathetically listening to the complaints of Rome regarding the charges of police harassment of Romanists and endorsing these complaints before the world and helping Rome in the creation of the image of the ‘persecuting Ulster Protestant’!

MLA calls on Parades Commission to oppose Free Presbyterian protest at LGBT parade

Rev. Marcus Lecky

We request prayer for Rev Marcus Lecky who has announced a protest against a sodomite ‘celebration in Cookstown later this month and also suggest the Orange Order should look at the membership of Joshua Cuddy, an openly self-acknowledged pervert and member of the Order.

The Orange Order has always presented itself as a’Christian” organisation. The tolerated presence of one who openly rejects God Word and lives in defiance of God’s holy standards, certainly challenges that claim.

Mid Ulster Pride: MLA calls on Parades Commission to oppose Free Presbyterian protest at LGBT parade

(Thursday 9th September 2021)

An SDLP MLA has said a protest by a church group over a planned LGBTQ+ parade has “no place in Mid Ulster” because it is “intolerant”.

Last year saw the first Pride Parade in Cookstown, and the small march – limited by Covid restrictions – was preceded by a small Free Presbyterian protest.

This year the parade is planned for September 18, and Rev Marcus Leckey of the Free Presbyterian Church in Cookstown has once again lodged an application with the Parades Commission to protest against it.

However SDLP Mid Ulster MLA Patsy McGlone has condemned those behind the planned protest. Click to read more…

Whilst the Lord is thus re-gathering Israel, and at the same time sending many judgments among the spared nations, who are to be broken before they are healed, He will introduce His saints into their heavenly mansions above, according to the promise “I will come again and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there ye may be also. In my Father’s house are many mansions.” This is the period of which it is said, that He who loved the Church and gave Himself for it, will present it unto Himself “a glorious Church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing.” (Eph. v.)

A rainbow crossing to where?

Rainbow crossing: NI’s first rainbow crossing unveiled in Londonderry

The first rainbow pedestrian crossing in Northern Ireland has been unveiled in Londonderry”

It links the Guildhall to the Peace Bridge with the aim of showing support for the city’s LGBTQ+ community The brainchild of the Foyle Pride Committee, it is also thought to be the first rainbow pedestrian crossing on the island of Ireland.

Jim Doherty, chairman of the Pride committee, said it would become a tourist attraction.

“It is in a brilliant location,” he told BBC Radio Foyle’s Mark Patterson Show.

“It is iconic, a good reflection of where we live.” He said there were similar crossings in other locations, including Berlin, San Francisco, and Camden.

“We thought it would be nice to have one realised here in Derry,” Mr Doherty said.

Earlier this year Derry City and Strabane District councillors unanimously agreed to fund the crossing after an approach from Foyle Pride. Click to read more…

The way forward to where?

The Belfast Telegraph, the media ‘champion of Ecumenism’, states in its ‘Viewpoint’ of today (4/9/21) that “Integration is the only way forward for our children.”The immediate question that comes to my mind is “the way forward to where?”

The article informs its readers that “Integrated education was created by a group of idealistic Protestant and Catholic parents, who led the fight to establish Lagan College, the first integrated school, 40 years ago.”

It is rather a coincidence that the first Integrated School came into existence just two years after the first Free Presbyterian Independent Christian School in Kilskeery. Nothing stirs the devil’s camp like a moving forward in the Lord’s!

“And Samuel took a sucking lamb, and offered [it for] a burnt offering wholly unto the LORD: and Samuel cried unto the LORD for Israel; and the LORD heard him. And as Samuel was offering up the burnt offering, the Philistines drew near to battle against Israel: but the LORD thundered with a great thunder on that day upon the Philistines, and discomfited them; and they were smitten before Israel,” 1 Samuel 7:9-10.

Sadly, the victory granted to Israel in answer to Samuel’s prayers and their diligent response to the Lord’s intervention, did not follow the commencement of Independent Christian schools. It says in verse 11 that “the men of Israel went out of Mizpeh, and pursued the Philistines, and smote them, until [they came] under Bethcar.”

Sadly, there were few who seized upon the opportunity presented by the door the Lord opened back in 1979. Click to read more…

Independent schools vs. "integrated status"?

The news item below is part of a news report on today’s BBC Northern Ireland news site.Its information is to be noted by those who care for the future of the truth of the gospel in Ulster.This Roman Catholic school is to become an ‘Integrated School’. That does not mean that it ceases to be a ‘Roman Catholic’ school. It just means it has access to better Government financial funding! It has not thrown over its Romish teachings and ethos and all its pupils, including the ‘Protestant’ pupils it hopes to recruit, will be subject to those falsehoods.

The change of status was approved by former Education Minister, DUP MLA, Mr Peter Weir, a professing Christian! The promotion of ‘Integrated Education’ has been the policy of the DUP for a number of years now! As we have said in the past, the DUP is now part of the Ecumenical Camp in our land!

In truth, this is but part of the ‘ecumenicalising’ of Northern Ireland. It is a less direct attempt by Rome to subtly embrace the Protestants of Ulster who have been lulled into a sleep of death. Sadly, there are many, many who have succumbed to Rome’s trickery. It is little wonder that this is so for the Church of Ireland, the Presbyterian Church and the Methodist Church have all laboured to sell this deceit to their people.

Today saw the commencement of the 43rd school year of the first Bible-based Christian school in Ulster, Kilskeery Independent Christian School.

It began in September 1979. It is staffed by dedicated and faithful Christians who sacrificially labour to the honour of the Lord and for the spiritual and eternal well-being of children. It has been sustained financially by the kindness of the Lord through the generosity of many Christians, including the fee-paying parents. The school, unlike the Roman Catholic and Integrated schools receives absolutely no financial support whatever from the Government. In that we rejoice for it means that the school is in control of its curriculum content, the character of its teachers and is free to teach the Word of God to the pupils in its entirety.

Geronimo the alpaca killed as legal row ends

So ran the BBC news site headline of August 31, 2021.

It is one of many accounts with which the public were regaled in the saga of an alpaca that was infected with ‘bovine tuberculosis’ or cattle TB as we ‘country folk’ would know it!

As such the animal, like any other animal so infected, was a threat to the health of other animals nearby. A department of Agriculture website says this of the disease. “It is caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis) which can also infect and cause disease in many other mammals including humans, deer, goats, pigs, cats, dogs and badgers. In cattle, it is mainly a respiratory disease but clinical signs are rare. TB in humans can be caused by both Mycobacterium bovis and the human form, Mycobacterium tuberculosis.”

The owner of the alpaca and her friends claimed that the putting down of the animal was murder. The alpaca was brought to England from New Zealand in August 2017 by his owner Helen Macdonald. It twice tested positive for bovine tuberculosis in August and November that year.

More than 140,000 people from around the world had signed a petition against Geronimo’s culling.

I find the reports of the ‘concern’ for this sick and infectious animal in great contrast with the legal murder of perfectly healthy unborn children in the United Kingdom and across the world generally. Click to read more…
