A time to be remembered

50 years ago Lord’s Day October 23rd.

Lord’s Day 23rd October 1966 a ‘Welcome Home’ rally was attended by some 12,000 people to mark the release from the Crumlin Road prison of Rev Ian Paisley, Rev John Wylie and Rev Ivan Foster.


A section of the crowd gathered to welcome home the three ministers

Those truly were the beginning of revival days. Please read the article “A time to be remembered” located below and see something of God’s mercy and blessing upon a reproached people 50 years ago.

“To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen,” Jude 1:25.
A-time-to-be-remembered-coverA feature article commemorating the 50th anniversary of the events that led up to and which followed after the 1966 imprisonment of Rev Ian Paisley, Rev John Wylie and Rev Ivan Foster for a term of 3 months in Crumlin Road Jail, Belfast.This account is compiled from reports in the Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster’s magazine, “The Revivalist” and some reports from the “Belfast Newsletter” and the “Belfast Telegraph”.

I have put together this collection of articles which appeared in the Revivalist in 1966 and 1967, and one from 1968, as well as some newspaper accounts of the June 6th protest, led by the late Dr. Paisley. The parade consisted of some 200 Free Presbyterian men, woman and children. It processed from Ravenhill Church to the building where the annual General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church was taking place. The aim of the event was to honour God, contend for the faith and highlight the ecumenical apostasy of that denomination.

Such were the consequences of that night’s protest that the small Free Presbyterian church, hardly known outside of the six counties of Northern Ireland, became the subject of discussion, mostly derogatory, throughout Christendom! But much more important was the moving of the Spirit of God that became evident within the ranks of the Free Presbyterian church from that time.

God was pleased to work mightily amongst us, adding to our numbers many new congregations and hundreds of new converts.

“And the land shall tremble and sorrow: for every purpose of the LORD shall be performed against Babylon,to make the land of Babylon a *desolation without an inhabitant,”

Jeremiah 51:29.

*The words ‘desolation without an inhabitant’ clearly indicate that this prophesy has not yet been fulfilled but its fulfilment lies in the future.
