Refo500’s ecumenical, pro-Rome agenda!!

refo500-ondertitelIt is promoting a Jesuit conference in Nairobi in July 2017 on the subject of the relationship between Catholics and Protestants on African soil in African history. Since the Jesuits came into existence to destroy the Protestant Reformation we have little doubt as to the objectives of this conference!!
Encounters between Catholics and Protestants in Africa July 11-14 2017, the Jesuit Historical Institute in Africa (JHIA) will host a conference in Nairobi on the subject of the relationship between Catholics and Protestants on African soil in African history. The sixteenth century events and the historical and theological novelty that they set in motion might easily pass uncelebrated in Africa. Read more


welcome_home_rally(Synopsis of the message preached by Rev Ivan Foster at the ‘Welcome Home’ rally 50 years ago today, Oct 23-16)

“Then Zedekiah the king sent, and took him out: and the king asked him secretly in his house, and said, Is there any word from the LORD? And Jeremiah said, There is: for, said he, thou shalt be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon,” Jeremiah 37:17.

This is the text I preached upon 50 years ago on Oct 23rd, 1966, at the ‘Welcome Home’ rally at Dundonald on the fringes of Belfast. It was organised by the Free Presbyterian Church after the release of Dr Paisley, Rev John Wylie and myself from the Crumlin Road Prison on the previous Wednesday and Thursday. Dr Paisley was arrested a day earlier than John and myself so he was released a day earlier. The meeting was chaired by Rev S B Cooke who was Deputy Moderator.

There is an brief account of the gathering and the opposition it encountered given in “The Revivalist” back then and reproduced on pages 31-32 of “A time to be Remembered”.

I only wish I had some record of the messages preached that day by Dr Paisley, Rev John Wylie or Dr Bob Jones Jr for they would make much better reading than do the words of my brief address. Read more

UNESCO Denies the Bible’s Record of Israel’s Claim to the Temple Mount!!

unesco-bannerThe executive committee of UNESCO has ratified a decision to erase Jewish history on the Temple Mount.

It is now the official position to ignore Judaism’s 3,000 year history at the site.

Early this morning, October 19th, the executive committee of UNESCO ratified the decision to erase Jewish history on the Temple Mount. It is now the official position to ignore Judaism’s 3,000 year history at the site.

A dangerous precedent has been set – a UN body is calling Israel “the occupying power” at the Western Wall and essentially denying the historical facts that tie Israel to Jerusalem. It could have serious implications on Israel’s future.

It is time to fight fire with fire. More than 23,000 people have signed our petition demanding the UN explicitly recognize Judaism’s history on the Temple Mount and Western Wall – will you join them?

Click here to add your name and demand the UN explicitly recognize Judaism’s history on the Temple Mount and Western Wall

UNESCO didn’t just erase Jewish history, they erased Christian history at the holy site as well. Scripture says Jesus prayed at the Temple. There’s evidence that Byzantine Christians used the Temple Mount before the Muslim conquest of Jerusalem. But in UNESCO’s resolution, all history – other than Islamic history – was erased.

If we don’t act now, Judaism could lose its place at its most sacred site and Israel’s international standing could be in danger. In the face of this travesty, we must stand up for Israel.

41 US Senators, Representatives and more than 23,000 signers to our petition oppose UNESCO’s anti-Israel resolution. Will you, your friends and your family join them?

Divisions – and the use God makes of them

torn_paper“For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you,”1 Corinthians 11:19.

(A message preached at Kilskeery Free Presbyterian weekly prayer meeting, 17th October 2016, by Rev Ivan Foster)

The word ‘heresy’ is derived from the storming of a city and the taking over of it. Divisions come about when the mind and heart has been taken captive by a falsehood, an error. The word ‘division’ verse 18, means “a rent or a tear”, Matt 9:16.

The Unquenchable Power of the Protestant Reformation

reformers_wall“When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him,” Isaiah 59:19.

The Second of four messages preached 20 years ago, in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church by the then minister, Rev Ivan Foster, to commemorate the glorious Protestant Reformation

Looking back upon history is unfashionable in these ecumenical days. It is nevertheless wise and in keeping with the Word of God. For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope, Romans 15:4. The enemy referred to in our text may be identified from Genesis 3:15. And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. The spirit of the enemy of all that is of God is found in the devil and his agents. He is the great adversary of the good and the godly. As the enemy, he has sought the utter destruction of God’s people and the witness to Him and His glory that they bear. He wishes not merely to oppose or hinder but to destroy utterly. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He 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. To that end he comes in like a flood. Read moreor listen using the player below.

My sermon on Dr Beeke’s errors removed from SermonAudio

I have been informed by Mr Steven Lee of SermonAudio that the sermon I preached on Lord’s Day evening 9th October in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church has been removed from his site.

The sermon was entitled:

Which path will the Free Presbyterian Church choose? Disowning Dr. Joel Beeke’s compromises or Displeasing the Lord of Glory?
“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them,” Ephesians 5:11.

Some time ago, a recording by Pastor Ralph Ovadal in which he exposed the errors and compromises of Dr Joel Beeke was also removed.

The reasons given for the removal of my sermon were as follows Read more

Dr Facing-Both-Ways!!!

beeke_worship_screen-shot-2016-10-11-at-13-44-10Further Evidence of Dr Joel Beeke’s duplicity

Dr Joel Beeke has gained a reputation amongst many as an upholder of the “Old Time Religion”! In the eyes of his admirers, he is “Mr Puritan”, “Mr Orthodoxy”, “Mr Reformation” or, if I might borrow the title given by the great John Bunyan to another of his characters in “Pilgrim’s Progress, he is deemed to be “Mr Valiant for the Truth”!

Such a view of Dr Joel Beeke is far removed from the truth concerning this man. He is more deserving of the title “Dr Facing-Both-Ways.” Read more

Email exchange with Dr. Beeke

In my sermon: “WHAT NOW FOR THE FRIENDS OF JOEL BEEKE?” I made mention of an email exchange I had with Dr Beeke in January and February 2013 ( I mistakenly referred to 2014 in my sermon).

I am remounting that exchange from the March 2013 edition of “The Burning Bush” for I believe it to be very relevant to the present controversy regarding Dr Beeke.

The email exchange shows that Dr Beeke was faithfully warned on a number of occasions about the crowd he was running with and he chose to ignore the warnings. The issues were set down in great detail but Dr Beeke made no attempt whatever to deal with them, but, it may be said, simply ran away from them.

It has to be also said that Dr Beeke’s friends likewise chose to ignore the attempts that were made by Pastor Ralph Ovadal and myself to speak to him as a brother.
They put their head in the sand and took no notice of the damning evidence we produced and the very unscriptural attitude adopted by Dr Beeke. Indeed, so supportive were they of him in his folly, they accompanied him in his “turning a blind eye and a deaf ear” to the clear evidence set forth.

Whatever the outcome of this battle for the truth of God and the maintenance of a separated witness in these times of increasing apostasy, none will be able to say that the errors of Dr Joel Beeke were not confronted. Those who sided with him did so despite the truth of God being shone upon his and their folly.

Which path will the Free Presbyterian Church choose? Disowning Dr. Joel Beeke’s compromises or Displeasing the Lord of Glory?

“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them,” Ephesians 5:11.

Throughout my ministry I have preached to the best of my ability the Word of God and applied it to those who were caught up in the errors of the ecumenical denominations, in order that they might be aware of what God would have them do in the face of the deceptions and delusions propagated by the devil and his agents. That is the duty of a servant of God.

Now, at the close of my pulpit ministry, I find myself addressing my fellow Free Presbyterians and that with a trembling heart. Read more

For whom has Christ reserved a crown?

“Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing,” 2 Tim 4:8.

The phrase, “there is laid up” appears in Colossians 1:5. We can see its exact meaning there. “For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel,” Colossians 1:5.

That for which the child of God hopes is the “crown if righteousness” to which Paul refers in our text.

  • The child of God is an “overcomer” despite our many falls and set-backs and defeats.
  • Our life of victory began at our conversion. 1 John 2:12-15, 4:4-6.
  • Our overcoming is due to Christ’s victory, John 16:33.
  • Thus we are enabled to overcome sin, Romans 12:21.
  • Even when we appear to suffer defeat, we remain overcomers through Christ. Compare Revelation 13:7 and 15:2
  • The finale of our overcoming is that moment when we receive the winner’s garland from the hand of the Saviour.

A shameful betrayal of Gospel Truth by Presbyterian minister and Assistant Grand Master of the Orange Order, Rev Mervyn Gibson

mervyn-gibsonHe says that Orange Order Orange Order members ‘should be allowed to attend Mass’!

Speaking on BBC Radio Ulster’s Talkback on Wednesday 5th October, 2016, senior Orangeman Mervyn Gibson said he, personally, would like to see the rule which bans members of the Orange Order from attending the Roman Catholic Mass changed.
It is a shameful betrayal of the teaching of the Bible and the whole witness of the Protestant Reformation and the honoured martyrs who died to uphold the truth that the Mass was a blasphemy.

Gibson’s argument for supporting the removal of the rule is stupid and utterly unscriptural. Read more

The Essential Character of the Protestant Reformation

reformers_wall“I have found the book of the law in the house of the LORD,” 2 Chronicles 34:15.

♦ The first of four messages preached 20 years ago, in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church by the then minister, Rev Ivan Foster, to commemorate the glorious Protestant Reformation ♦

In this, the first of a planned series of messages commemorating the 16th century Protestant Reformation, I wish to speak upon the character of that great movement which embraced all of Europe and which, to this day, still exercises a profound impact upon the life of our nation.

When I think of that great time of blessing, I am deeply ashamed of the image that Protestantism has today in our land and throughout the world. Much of what is considered Protestantism would be utterly repudiated by the Reformers.

The murder campaign waged by loyalist gunmen here in Ulster is, in the eyes of many, the action of Protestants. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The mindless hatred that is so often featured as an expression of Protestant views is likewise far from being in any way representative of the spirit of Protestantism.
The time-serving politicians of Ulster are seen by many as representatives of the thinking of true Protestants. How saddening that is for any with an understanding of and love for the doctrines of the Reformation. Read more

Joel Beeke preaches for and publicly seeks closer links with sodomy-endorsing Dutch denomination!

beeke♦ His departure cannot get much worse and leaves his supporters with a stark choice.
♦ How long are some ministers going to continue attempting to whitewash this man?
♦ God’s warning stands sure: “Behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out,” Numbers 32:23.

Most of our readers should be aware of the controversy surrounding Dr Joel Beeke and his links with those whose standing should not be acceptable to the Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster. In the past he has shared platforms with pro-sodomite speakers and sold books extolling the sodomite life-style. This can be checked out in Pastor Ralph Ovadal’s article: “The Downward Spiral of Dr. Joel Beeke’s Ministries Continues”.

However, as is the inevitable outcome of compromise, he has gone even further. On a preaching visit to Holland, he preached in pulpits which are occupied by sodomite-supporting ministers. But, not content with such a violation of God’s Word, Dr Beeke used the occasion to express a desire for his church, Heritage Netherlands Reformed Congregation, to have formal links with the Restored Reformed Church denomination which has endorsed the dreadful doctrine that a sodomite can be a true believer and even a minister of the Lord Jesus Christ. Read more

Editor’s correspondence with ‘Father’ Patrick McCafferty

Pastor James McConnell and the RC priest Patrick McCafferty with whom he is most friendly
Pastor James McConnell and the RC priest Patrick McCafferty with whom he is most friendly

Back in 2002, I entered into a correspondence in the pages of “The Burning Bush” with a Roman Catholic priest from Belfast. The correspondence arose after I wrote a letter in reply to an article by the priest in “The Belfast Telegraph” of August 24th, 2002.

I was grieved at such a platform being given to the errors and deceptions of Rome and commented on the priest’s article in a letter to “The Belfast Telegraph.”

It will be noted how our two replies to the priest were edited by the ‘Letters Editor’ of “The Belfast Telegraph” before they quickly closed the exchange after two exchanges.

The Word of God was not liked by that ecumenical newspaper back then and it is still the case. Every effort was made to shield and protect the priest of Rome from the rebuke of God’s Word.

We are republishing the correspondence, which continued for eight exchanges, and appeared in “The Burning Bush” from October 2002 until May 2003, because of the publicity given to the ‘warm relationship’ that was manifested between this priest and Pastor James McConnell during the recent trial occasioned by Pastor McConnell’s pulpit statements about Islam. Pastor McConnell asked ‘Father’ Patrick McCafferty to speak on his behalf during the trial.

All this “ecumenical camaraderie” between the pastor and the priest may appear to some to give endorsement of the teachings of Rome and it is for this reason we highlight again the errors this priest, like all Roman Catholic clerics, propagates.

Needless to say, it also highlights the folly of James McConnell!
