DUP now part of the mainstream ecumenical movement in Ulster

Back in October of this year, a copy of an invitation issued by the Northern Ireland Assembly Christian Fellowship, along with an introductory leaflet about the NIACF, came into my possession. The invitation was to a meeting at which the Chief Constable of the Police Service of Northern Ireland was to speak.

What was especially interesting was the fact that the Roman Catholic MLA, Alban McGuinness, was listed as one of those organising the meeting. A reply to the invitation was to be sent to Mr Jonathan Craig, a Democratic Unionist MLA. Read more

Jesus Christ superstar protest.

A protest was held outside the Grand Opera House in Belfast on Saturday afternoon 5th November 2011 against the production entitled: Jesus Christ Superstar. This year marks the 40th anniversary of its first production for the stage. Around 400 specially prepared leaflets highlighting the slanderous attack upon the person and work of Jesus Christ contained in this ‘rock opera’, were distributed to people attending the final day’s performance of this ‘rock opera’.

Maynooth Community Church: Promoting the Jesuit Cause.

The ongoing apostasy within the Presbyterian Church in Ireland may be clearly seen in this article which was recently mounted on Mr Cecil Andrews’ site, Take Heed Ministries.

I am reminded of what Paul the apostle said to the Thessalonian church in 2 Thessalonians 2:7. “For the mystery of iniquity doth already work . . . ” It is most certainly at work today as we near the revelation of the Antichrist, “whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming,” 2 Thessalonians 2:8. We honour brother Andrews and his witness for truth in these evil times.

The things which will announce, accompany and follow after the return of Christ

Part One: Why we should watch for Christ’s return

This is our first study in what I believe will be an interesting and beneficial series of prophetic studies. We will endeavour to look at God’s revelation of the events which He has said will take place just prior to the return of the Saviour to rule this world. We wish to start our series by looking at why we should consider such a subject. Some might believe that it is folly to stare into the future and try and anticipate what will happen amongst the nations at the end of this age. If such a study is folly then the folly began with the Lord Who revealed these things to us and commanded us to give consideration to what He said. Read the article.

Part two: What the Christian waiting for Christ’s return should look out for

I have often used the illustration of the directions given to a traveller becoming more and more detailed as he nears his destination to show that so it is with prophecy. I am convinced that God’s people will be able to tell, with increasing confidence, the time of the Saviour’s return as that wonderful event draws near.

There will come a time when true believers will know to look up for the time of Christ’s return has come. “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh,” Luke 21:28.

There are four developments, four areas of activities, which are early harbingers of the approaching nearness of Christ’s return. Read more

Part three: Why the Saviour warned of deception in the last days. NEW!

“Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you,” Matthew 24:4.

A wonderful conversation took place between the Saviour and His disciples in a most significant location just days before His crucifixion. That place was the Mount of Olives. It was from this mount that the Saviour would ascend some forty days after His resurrection and it will be to this same mount that the Saviour will return one day soon (Acts 1:9-12 and Zechariah 14:3-4).
