or, “Ulster was warned of the dangers of the road it was being urged to take!!”

Some ‘Burning Bush’ Articles from 2006 and 2007 which indicate that the folly of “power-sharing” with terrorist and its consequences was clearly set forth.

Concerns within the DUP (November 2006)

Continuing Stedfast

Kilskeery Communion Service, October 25th, 2015.

“Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers,” Acts 2:41-42.

As we receive four young people into membership today the question – “What is a Christian” is worthy of consideration.

The answer is given by the greatest of all authorities, the Lord Jesus Christ.

“And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them, If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple,” Luke 14:25-27.

Folly. There have been those who have foolishly stated that there is ‘no other qualification for membership of and fellowship in the Church of Christ than being born again.’ I believe that such a notion is wrong and is born of a desire to widen the “strait gate” and broaden the “narrow way” referred to by the Saviour in Matthew 7:13-14.

Commonly called ‘The Lord’s Prayer.’

(A series of studies based upon messages preached by Rev Ivan Foster, in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church in 1987 and presently being repeated in the Young People’s Fellowship meetings in the church)

The Preface to the Prayer – “Our Father which art in heaven” , Matthew 6:9.

I think it profitable to point out that though this prayer is commonly called ‘The Lord’s Prayer’, it is in truth a disciple’s prayer. Our Saviour could never have prayed a prayer, at the heart of which was a confession of sin and a seeking of forgiveness. The Lord Jesus is our Great High Priest Who is “without sin,” Hebrews 4:15. Read more

Can we know the time of Christ’s return?

To many Christians the concept that God’s people may understand the timing of Christ’s return seems to be an heretical notion. The words of Christ are often cited in support. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only, Matt 24:36. Yet these words emphatically do not mean that God’s people will be ignorant of when Christ will appear. In fact, the saints living in the time leading up to that return and who study the Scriptural teaching on Christ’s return will have a very clear idea of when Christ will return – just like Noah knew when the flood was coming!

Below is a recording of a prayer meeting message preached by Rev. Andy Foster, as part of an ongoing series of studies in Matthew 24 & 25, which deals with this matter.

Kilskeery Annual Autumn Conference


Friday 30th October 7.30 pm

“The united testimony of Scripture”
Preacher : Rev Gordon Dane (Crossgar FPC)

Saturday 31st October 7.30 pm

“The truth maintained from the apostles until now”
Preacher : Rev Brian McClung (Newtownabbey FPC)

Lord’s Day 1st November

11.30 am: “The Testimony of the prophets & apostles”
7.00 pm: “The Testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ”
Preacher : Mr Stephen Toms
(Secretary of the Sovereign Grace Advent Testimony)

  • The central purpose of our conference is to set forth the TEACHING of the BIBLE
    on the subject of prophecy.
  • It is what God’s Word says and not what great men in the past may have said on this matter, for they were but men and were fallible.
  • “The word of God, as contained in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments,
    is the only infallible rule of faith and practice.”
  • Therefore our messages are nothing but simple expositions of God’s prophetic Scriptures, rather than a setting forth of the opinions of men.

Protests at the Papal Antichrist’s Visit to USA

The following is a report with links to videos by a brother, Sean Cummings.

This brother is unknown to me but I present his report for it is encouraging to know that there are those ready and willing to undertake the daunting task of entering into a large multitude of fervent Romanists who would not welcome such a witness. 

May the Lord bless this effort and honour the distribution of His Word amongst the poor sinners gathered to honour a man the Westminster Confession of Faith rightly calls: “There is no other head of the Church, but the Lord Jesus Christ; nor can the Pope of Rome, in any sense, be head thereof; but is that Antichrist, that man of sin, and son of perdition, that exalteth himself, in the Church. against Christ and all that is called God.” (Chapter XXV, paragraph VI.)

Rev Ivan Foster.


Here is a brief recap of how the evangelism went during the pope’s visit to Washington DC and Philadelphia this past week.  We praise God that He gave us utterance of the gospel, He enabled His word to go out with power and little to no oppression, and that He gave us boldness to share so much of what is wrong with Romanism.  He also kept us safe in the face of adversity.  In Washington DC, we found out that on Wednesday that undercover cops had been assigned to us to ensure our safety, and in Philadelphia on Saturday, six cops walked us back to our hotel.

(One of the videos included in the report is below. There are links to more videos in the full report)

Part 9: A glorious doxology

roman_soldierAn outline study of Jude – an important little book for today, by Rev Ivan Foster.

“Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen,” Jude 24-25.

As this call to arms comes to an end, it is most significant that it concludes with one of the most noble, most glorious most relevant doxologies in the Bible. Here is a profoundly wonderful elevating of God and that in terms so marvellously relevant to the subject matter the apostle has been dealing with.

Here is a glorious note to conclude an urgent appeal to beware of the creeping destructiveness of apostasy: “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling.” While Jude sought to arouse believers to the danger of those who would sow the seeds of detestable error which would lead to a turning from God and a falling away, his fiñnal words extol the power of our God to keep His flock.

Report of the Free Presbyterian gospel witness at the National Ploughing Championships in Ratheniska, County Laois, Republic of Ireland

Rev Larry Power, Interim Moderator of Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church, reports on the three-day gospel outreach at the ploughing championships in Co. Laois, of which he was an outreach team member.

There were some 281,000 people attended the three day event with 1500 exhibitors. The Free Presbyterian team gave out some 35,000 gospel calendars, had about 1200 people (judging by the cups of tea given out) calling into the gospel marquee for literature and oftentimes to talk about spiritual things. Some 230 New Testaments and 220 Bibles were given out upon request.

Please pray for each item of literature thus distributed to people who came from all parts of Ireland and, it has to be said, by and large received graciously and courteously by the people. Many of those contacted spoke of their previous visits in former years and mentioned that they still had the gospel calendar received then.

The front of the calendar distributed this year.
