Jeremiah 6:10-14: “To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear? behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of the Lord is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it. Therefore I am full of the fury of the Lord; I am weary with holding in: I will pour it out upon the children abroad, and upon the assembly of young men together: for even the husband with the wife shall be taken, the aged with him that is full of days. And their houses shall be turned unto others, with their fields and wives together: for I will stretch out my hand upon the inhabitants of the land, saith the Lord. For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely. They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.”
Could there be a more accurate assessment of the situation in Ulster today than that phrase: “Peace, peace when there is no peace”?
When one looks at the shabby so-called peace we have in Northern Ireland, eulogised so fulsomely this week by the same old liars, deceivers, ecumenists and apostates who greeted the ‘Good Friday Agreement’ with such enthusiasm 20 years ago, one can only but see how much it would displease God when he looks upon this land of ours.
Any principles of justice were thrown out the window when that dreadful document was signed.
Murderers were let out of prison in the name of peace, and still 20 years on we have the likes of Tony Blair, a closet Romanist at the time, telling us it was absolutely necessary to release all the terrorists in order to achieve peace. What lies and nonsense!
We also have this week had ecumenical cheerleaders of clergymen this week hailing the agreement such as the Rev Harold Good (For Nothing!), whom we have previously discussed failing to contain his excitement at the planned visit of “that man of sin, and son of perdition”, the Pope, to Ireland, and another old friend of this blog, Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke, who led his parishioners into the clutches of Rome to celebrate St Patrick’s Day.
In Job’s disputings with his friends, he is asked two rhetorical questions by Bildad. Job 8:3 says: “Doth God pervert judgment? or doth the Almighty pervert justice?”
While Bildad and his companions were unduly harsh on Job, Bildad here posed very pertinent questions and ones which self-evidently require no answer. Of course God does not pervert justice.
However, this is an area in which there seems to be a specialising in our province, where murderers and would-be murderers, be they Romanists or so-called Protestants, are allowed back on the street long before their sentence has expired. It is a complete affront to justice.
Leaders are put in power to see justice done in their land, as is demonstrated for us in 1 Kings 10:9 when the Queen of Sheba addressed King Solomon. It says: “Blessed be the Lord thy God, which delighted in thee, to set thee on the throne of Israel: because the Lord loved Israel for ever, therefore made he thee king, to do judgment and justice.”
This is further emphasised in Romans 13:3. It says: “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil.”
Our leaders were by no means a terror to evil works. In fact, those same killers released under the terms of the ‘Good Friday Agreement’ are now occupying many of the most important and influential positions in our land.
And we are told by apostate clerics such as Rev Harold Good For Nothing and Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke that this is a praiseworthy thing? As the Apostle Paul said, under the divine inspiration of the Holy Ghost, on many occasions in his letters: “God forbid”.
Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke (pictured, below on right of picture with Eamon Martin) did what all good little Romanist patsy Church of Ireland Bishops and Archbishops seem to do these days and issued a joint statement with his Papal counterpart, Archbishop of Armagh Eamon Martin.
In addition to the usual woolly nonsense one would expect from soppy ecumenists, Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke talks about “the Christian tradition we share” and mentions how he and his Romanist mate have a “sincere shared prayer” for peace.
Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke cannot share a “Christian tradition” with a Papist, for the Roman Catholic Church is not a Christian church, it is a pagan corruption.
His own 39 Articles, which supposedly govern his church, call the Roman Mass a “blasphemous fable” and a “dangerous deceit”, yet he is hand in hand with this architect of delusion which leads lost souls to hell.
If Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke shares a tradition with Eamon Martin then he can most assuredly not be called a Christian.
As for his “sincere shared prayer”, to whom is this prayer being addressed? The Roman Catholic Church teaches falsely of prayer to Mary and saints, yet the Bible says we can only pray to God. In 1 Timothy 2:5 we are told: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”. Does Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke believe there is a legitimacy in praying to Mary and saints?
Another apostate who was key in foisting the deceit of the ‘Good Friday Agreement’ upon Ulster’s Protestants is former Methodist President Rev Harold Good For Nothing (pictured, below).
He, along with ‘Father’ Alec Reid, a Protestant hating Romanist based at Clonard Monastery in West Belfast, played a key role in tricking Protestants into accepting this betrayal of their heritage.
Indeed, at ‘Father’ Alec Reid’s funeral a few years ago, Rev Harold Good For Nothing couldn’t have been more glowing in his praise to that architect of delusion who had helped corral countless numbers of poor benighted Roman Catholics into hell.
Rev Harold Good For Nothing called him a “very personal friend and brother in Christ”. As we discussed earlier this week regarding Church of Ireland Bishop of Clogher, Right Eejit John McDowell, they may well have served the same god and been brothers in that religion, but they certainly weren’t serving the God of heaven.
They “felt very secure in each other’s company”, he said. The attitude of a true child of God would not be so. It would be the same as the view of David as expressed in Psalm 26:4-5: “I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers. I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.”
Rev Harold Good For Nothing felt “very secure” in the company of the wicked. We believe that speaks for itself.
In his eulogy to a servant of the devil, Rev Harold Good For Nothing concluded: “May I offer you my blessing? Go forth my friend – in the name of the Father who created you; in the name of the Son who has redeemed you; in the name of the Holy Spirit who has sanctified you, may your journey now bring you to a place of real and lasting peace, the peace that you so richly deserve.”
What despicable words! Rev Harold Good For Nothing must believe there is salvation in the Roman Catholic Church, with its blasphemous denial of the precious Biblical truth of salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.
Ephesians 2:8-9 says: “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
Rome flatly denies this precious precept and therefore cannot show people the way to salvation.
‘Father’ Alec Reid hated Protestants and yet Rev Harold Good For Nothing felt “very secure” in his company.
At a meeting in Fitzroy Presbyterian Church (yes, a so-called Protestant church!), ‘Father’ Alec Reid said: “You don’t want to hear the truth. The reality is that the nationalist (read, Roman Catholic) community in Northern Ireland were treated almost like animals by the unionist (read, Protestant) community. They were not treated like human beings. They were treated like the Nazis treated the Jews.”
He later apologised for this disgraceful, utterly unfounded and deceitful diatribe, but qualified it with typical weasel words and said the IRA were “a violent response to the suppression of human rights” – yet another lie from Rev Harold Good For Nothing’s spiritual brother.
Indeed, there is a most interesting article discussing Clonard Monastery, ‘Father’ Alec Reid’s hangout for many years, on the ‘Irish Peace Process’ website, which can be viewed here, and its alleged links to the IRA.
Two decades on from the delivery of this shabby ‘peace’, we are two decades further away from God.
The numbers of those who faithfully cling to the old standards continues to decline in this land of ours which has so often benefited from the blessing of our glorious Saviour.
However, there is a way to see revival in our land once again, even though the day is evil.
It is laid out clearly for us in 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Dear Christian, please cry to God for revival and that he might heal our land and bring true peace, which can come only through Christ.
If you are not saved, then you can have no peace in your heart until you submit yourself to God, repent of your sins and call upon Him for salvation.
Cling to the precious promise of John 6:37 today: “and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out”.
