Ignatius of Loyola fanboy Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson calls Jesuit priest a ‘wonderful man’

2 Timothy 4:3-4: “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

If, for some reason, anybody needed further evidence that Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, lead pastor of the Emmanuel Church in the Lurgan and Portadown areas of County Armagh, was a Romish compromiser, he has stepped up to the plate once again to show his God-defiance.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson has declared a notable Jesuit priest from Belfast to be a “wonderful man of peace”.

‘Father’ Martin Magill has studiously carved out a niche for himself as a bit of a celebrity priest in Northern Ireland and relished his moment in the limelight last year as he pontificated from the pulpit of St Anne’s Cathedral (still, ostensibly a Protestant church) at the funeral of the, until then, utterly unknown Belfast journalist Lyra McKee, who suddenly, we were told, was actually the best up and coming journalist known to man.

She had been struck by a bullet while reporting from the scene of Irish republican rioting in Londonderry, one of the Romanist thugs striking her with one of their shots, intended for police officers.

An open lesbian, she had sought to use the Bible to justify the sodomite movement and her funeral was a very peculiar affair, bizarrely bordering on the lines of a state occasion as ecumenists and LGBT activists sought to hijack the event to advance their own nefarious causes.

One would have thought she had been shot by that republican because she was a lesbian, given the coverage which followed, as her “girlfriend” and various groups and individuals called for sodomite marriage to be introduced in Northern Ireland (still illegal at that point) as a tribute to her as efforts were made to make her some sort of sodomite martyr.

‘Father’ Martin Magill, who runs the wretched quasi-religious, quasi-political Four Corners Festival each year in Belfast alongside Presbyterian minister Rev Steve Stockman (the man who preaches the gospel according to the utterly ungodly Lady Gaga but hates the preaching of the true gospel of Jesus Christ), spied his chance to get on his ecumenical soapbox and was the preacher at the funeral.

He delivered what was lauded by the ungodly world, and plenty of ungodly ‘preachers’ as a wonderful display of “speaking truth to power” and other such self-important claptrap.

The upshot of his self-indulgent rantings was that it was absolutely critical that the Northern Ireland Assembly, pulled down by the murderers and murderer supporters of Sinn Fein in a huff, get back up and running as part of the pathetic narrative that religious and political ecumenists peddle, which is that blood will flow on the streets unless the poor little republicans are given what they want.

‘Father’ Martin Magill successfully used the occasion to firmly establish himself as the leading ecumenical practitioner of Papal priestcraft in Ulster and will dine out off it for the rest of his days.

Many God-defying pastors were falling over themselves to fawn over ‘Father’ Martin Magill, who is a Jesuit priest, that evil order set up specifically by Rome to counteract the glorious Protestant Reformation.

One such character, unsurprisingly, was Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, and he was at it again at the start of last week to eulogise a man who has dedicated his life to propagating a false gospel of salvation by sacramental merit.

‘Father’ Martin Magill had originally posted a tweet in which he was promoting what has been called ‘The Irish Blessing’, an ecumenical recording of the hymn ‘Be Thou My Vision’ to apparently show support for healthcare workers during this Covid-19 pandemic, which was jointly organised by ‘Father’ Martin Magill and a Church of Ireland trainee minister called Philip McKinley. This is something we plan to look at in greater depth in a future post, God willing.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson then responded by saying: “Well done Fr Martin – what a wonderful man of peace in this land you are. Thank you!”

So there you have it – a Jesuit priest, a man who blasphemes Christ every day, is a “wonderful man” according to Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson.

This “wonderful man” claims to offer Christ up as a sacrifice day after day, this “wonderful man” promotes Mary worship, this “wonderful man” proclaims the lie of purgatory and this “wonderful man” exalts the Pope, who blasphemes God through the various titles he takes upon himself.

Not so wonderful really, when put in the light of Scripture.

We are told the sacrifice of Christ was once for all.

Hebrews 9:24-26 states this clearly. It says: “For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.”

We are told Mary is a sinner, albeit a saved sinner, not some semi deity. In fact Mary says it of herself that she was in need of a Saviour.

Luke 1:46-47 says: “And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.”

Yet ‘Father’ Martin Magill and his church teaches to this day the lies of the mass and of worshipping Mary.

Of course, it should be little surprise to anyone that Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson would take such a stance.

He is, after all, the great Jesuit glorifier and fanboy of that most evil man, Ignatius of Loyola.

Lest anyone should forget, Ignatius of Loyola was the founder of the Jesuits, which led the charge against the Reformation and which led the centuries long murderous, barbarous Inquisition, with the backing of the Papacy.

God’s Word tells us that to hate evil is a sign of being His child, and there can be few more evil men guilty of more evil action than Ignatius of Loyola.

Psalm 97:10 says: “Ye that love the LORD, hate evil”.

And in October 2018, Alain Emerson proved he does not hate evil as he glorified that evil man, disgracefully promoting this devoted adherent to the lies of Rome to his congregation in the Emmanuel Church. Indeed, he taught those in attendance to follow the spiritual practices of that evil Mary worshipper.

You can read significant, disgraceful excerpts of his appalling deceit by reading the article we penned at the time, which you can access easily by clicking here.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson appears to be somewhat enamoured of the Romanist Jesuit order and has an affinity for sharing quotes from such on Twitter, such as Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and, just last Friday, the Jesuit trained priest Henri Nouwen, a favourite of lots of ecumenical charismatics.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson is held up as one of the leading lights in the modern charismatic church in Northern Ireland, he runs the 24-7 Prayer Ireland group, is invited to speak (at least in pre-lockdown times) at various other charismatic groups and has close links with ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas, a senior figure at Causeway Coast Vineyard, former leader of the Evangelical Alliance in Northern Ireland and now leader of the Evangelical Alliance in the UK as a whole.

He has a certain amount of influence and is, by his actions, normalising ecumenism in the eyes of those who attend his churches and emboldening others to do the same.

Let us take a stand against such mean compromise and continue to speak out and warn others of the treacherous deceit of the gospel being carried out by men who claim to be serving God.

Isaiah 29:13: “Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men”.

Isaiah 58:1: “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.”

Jesuit glorifier Alain Emerson preaches charismatic deceit in another Romanist venue

1 John 4:1: “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”

The ecumenical charismatic movement is big business in Northern Ireland (and numerous other places) at present.

Having seen the growth in the ‘fellowship’ type churches, gatherings in other denominations have decided to jump on board the charismatic bandwagon and get a slice of the unbiblical action.

Clanging ‘Christian’ rock music, casual attire, shallow ‘positive vibes’ theology and no requirement for personal sanctification (the ‘God’ they preach is just so chuffed you are doing him a favour by claiming to be his follower) helps draw in the punters, which in turn drives up the revenue and, hey presto, prosperity is a sign that God is working. Isn’t it?

Examples of the more traditional denominational churches who have hopped on board with the modern charismatic movement, which is rooted in the outrageous excesses of the Toronto Blessing, are the like of Carnmoney Presbyterian Church (led by crowd-surfing, ‘LGBT Christian’ affirming, Jesuit priest promoting Rev John Dickinson), Willowfield Parish Church (until recently led by new Archbishop of Down and Dromore and ecumenical New Wine compromiser Rev David McClay, pictured, below) and Newtownbreda Baptist Church (led by Evangelical Alliance supporting, comedy performer hosting, charismatic fellowshipping Pastor Trevor Ramsey, with an honourable mention to his assistant, Pastor Tim Robinson).

Another one of these is 1st Presbyterian Church in Ballynahinch, County Down, led by Rev Dario Leal, a native of Chile.

He is up to his neck in the charismatic tomfoolery which passes for Christianity in many places these days.

The church he currently has charge over runs the leaven-filled Alpha Course, whose overall leader is the Rome lover Nicky Gumbel, and his church’s Clerk of Session is a woman called Jill McKee (pictured, below, 1 Timothy 2:12), who was one of the demonstrators at a ludicrous, unscriptural ‘prophetic art’ event at CFC Belfast (good friends of Pastor Trevor Ramsey and his Newtownbreda Baptist Church) last October.

And, in 2016, Dario Leal ran a conference headlined by out and out heretic and leader in the foul Toronto Blessing (the movement which popularised writhing on the floor, laughing manically and barking like a dog as a manifestation of the ‘spirit’, though certainly not the Holy Spirit), Randy Clark.

It was held in 1st Bangor Presbyterian Church, whose current ‘minister’ is a woman (1 Timothy 2:12) called ‘Rev’ Mairisine Stanfield, who, according to the faithful servant of God, Cecil Andrews of Take Heed Ministries, is the former ‘minister’ of 1st Presbyterian Church, Ballynahinch, Rev Dario Leal’s current stomping ground.

Details given on the “Healing Prayer at Northdown CFC” facebook page of the event are included in the screenshot below. We are not sure if “Northdown CFC” is connected with CFC Belfast but would be keen for anyone with information in that regard to get in contact with us.

And it was Rev Dario Leal’s church which was up to its neck in a 24-7 Prayer week in Ballynahinch a little while back, running from Sunday, 1 to Sunday, 8 March.

A group called ‘Grace Fellowship’ were also strongly involved in the event. They are a breakaway group from Ballynahinch Baptist Church, once again according to Cecil Andrews at Take Heed Ministries. You can read his article on this event by clicking here.

And they brought in Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson (pictured, top), one of the leading figures in the wretched ecumenical deceit spreading through our land.

He spoke on the opening night (start as you mean to go on!) in a Romanist primary school in the town called St Colman’s.

Alain Emerson has a track record for speaking in Romanist venues, having preached during the ecumenical talking shop known as the Four Corners Festival in a Roman Catholic chapel in 2018. You can see him, below, doing just that.

And here he is again, showing his lack of concern for any form of Biblical faithfulness.

For five straight days during the 24-7 Prayer week, Lectio Divina sessions were held, a Papist blasphemy. Alain Emerson’s co-pastor at his Emmanuel Church in the Lurgan and Portadown areas of County Armagh, Dave Wylie, told attendees to take part in this ungodly practice.

It really is a sad mess and we would once again issue the call to anyone involved with 1st Presbyterian Church in Ballynahinch, 1st Presbyterian Church in Bangor, Grace Fellowship in Ballynahinch and Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area to separate from these fellowships.

We are reminded in James 1:27 that “pure religion and undefiled before God is this… to keep himself unspotted from the world”. 

These churches are covered in the stains of the world.

Separate yourself even today.

Newtownbreda Baptist persists in fellowshipping with Romish compromisers

Psalm 119:1-4: “Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord. Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart. They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways. Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.”

Regular readers of ‘Protestant Revival’ will be aware that we have previously warned of the dangerous compromise being carried out by Newtownbreda Baptist Church in south Belfast.

Its membership, which continues to this day, of the Evangelical Alliance, led by determined Romish compromiser Peter Lynas and with several less than admirable members, was the first thing which brought it to our attention.

Since then, we have highlighted how Newtownbreda Baptist Church brought in a comedian to tickle the ears (and ribs) of attendees, as well as its joint venture, aptly entitled ‘Just One’, with a number of other charismatic leaning churches, CFC Belfast, UT Belfast, Orangefield Presbyterian Church and Crown Jesus Ministries.

Back in January this year, we also pointed out a prayer guide Newtownbreda Baptist Church was jointly promoting with the four churches mentioned above was using US heretic Rick Warren as part of its inspiration.

We have also pointed out brazen ecumenical compromise within some of the four charismatic churches which Newtownbreda Baptist Church has linked arms with.

This includes Crown Jesus Ministries leader ‘Mitch’, bringing in a leading charismatic Roman Catholic called Ron Huntley of Divine Renovation Ministry to his church and one of CFC Belfast’s groupings holding a retreat at the hotbed of ecumenical deceit and compromise that is Corrymeela.

All these warnings have gone unheeded by Pastor Trevor Ramsey (pictured, top), the lead pastor at Newtownbreda Baptist Church, as well as Community Pastor Tim Robinson and Associate Pastor Jonny Wright.

And just this week Pastor Trevor Ramsey took part in a webinar (combining the words website and seminar) hosted by the Ecumenical Alliance, sorry, Evangelical Alliance, and also featuring Mitch of Crown Jesus Ministries and a Jonny Campbell, the leader of the ecumenical, charismatic Alpha Course in Northern Ireland, who is also heavily involved with Orangefield Presbyterian Church.

Romanist Ron Huntley of Divine Renovation Ministry is a leading figure in the Alpha Course in Canada, showing how that utterly apostate church has bought into it, which should surely send alarm bells ringing for any true child of God. Furthermore, Nicky Gumbel, the man who is seen as the founder of the modern Alpha Course, has previously been highlighted on this page for fawning over a Roman Catholic cardinal from the Philippines because he organised a Papal visit to his country attended by millions of poor, deluded souls being directed to hell by “that Antichrist”.

The webinar, for those who are interested, discussed what those individuals saw as the best way for “the church” to respond to the Covid-19 crisis in terms of evangelism.

In his introduction at the beginning of the webinar, Pastor Trevor Ramsey stresses how “happy” he was to be taking part with compromisers, while Mitch extols the alleged virtues of the Alpha Course and then later on refers to the Lord’s Prayer as the “Our Father”, the term used to describe the Lord’s Prayer by Romanists. Rick Warren also gets a positive name check, again by Mitch.

Pastor Trevor Ramsey is pointing out how “happy” he is to be keeping spiritual company with men who promote a course that Rome has endorsed and who bring Romanists in to speak to their flock.

Indeed, Mitch has previously expressed his delight at a prominent Methodist minister, Rev John Alderdice, preaching at the blasphemous Romanist novena at Clonard Monastery last year, quoting Pope Francis by way of encouragement. The exchange is reproduced below, to demonstrate this beyond doubt.

This is the nature of the people Newtownbreda Baptist Church is mixing with spiritually.

Another of the webinars was held two days after the one involving Pastor Trevor Ramsey, Mitch and Jonny Campbell, this time featuring Owen Crane, lead pastor of CFC Belfast and Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, the man who glorified the evil founder of the Romanist order of the Jesuits, Ignatius of Loyola, which led the centuries long murderous Inquisition.

We have faithfully, as best we can and with God as our help and guide, sought to warn Pastor Trevor Ramsey and all those connected with Newtownbreda Baptist Church of the dangerous links being formed.

We would urge everyone reading this to contact anyone you know within this church and to contact any of the three pastors mentioned above to once more bring this to their attention.

You can ask anyone you know or those pastors are they happy with the links they are forming?

Are they happy that Peter Lynas, Alain Emerson (pictured, below), Owen Crane, Mitch, Jonny Campbell, etc are appropriate characters to be mingling with spiritually?

Are they happy that Mitch is quoting the Pope as encouragement to a compromising minister preaching at a blasphemous Romanist novena and their church is then joining in events and prayer guides with him?

If anyone reading this is a member or even a regular or occasional attendee, can you ask yourself if you are content with these links being formed? Are they God honouring? Are they consistent with the Word of God?

The Bible says in Ephesians 5:11 that we are to “have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them”.

There can be no dispute that Rome, which denies the all-sufficient death of Christ at Calvary, which exalts and worships Mary, which offers the blasphemous Mass, which teaches of a fictitious place they call purgatory and which claims the Pope is God on earth, can justly be called the “unfruitful works of darkness”.

Do you want your church to be associated with such? Do you want your loved ones associated with such?

Let us follow the Scriptural command to separation, as clearly given to us in 2 Corinthians 6:17, which says: “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord”.

Note that this call to separation comes from the Lord.

Man may tell you it is better to stay in, not to cause a fuss, to look at the good deeds being carried out in the church, to try to change things from within, perhaps, but look against what the Lord says: “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate”.

Let us all rather listen to the Lord and follow the words of Peter, when he said in Acts 5:29: “We ought to obey God rather than men”.

Pope exalted by Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson at 24-7 Prayer’s Belfast conference

It is no secret that pagan Romanism and the charismatic 24-7 Prayer movement go hand in hand, yet so many so-called Protestant Christians seem unable or unwilling to see these disgraceful links.

But they were proudly on show for all to see once again at the weekend just gone as the words of the Pope were plastered at the front of their worldwide conference, held in Belfast.

A somewhat sadly credulous attendee posted a message on his Twitter account expressing his tremendous delight at being at the conference.

To go along with his words, he posted a picture of none other than Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson (pictured, top), one of the lead pastors of the Rome embracing Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area of County Armagh and leader of 24-7 Prayer in Ireland, up on the stage with a quote projected on to the screen behind him as he spoke.

That quote, of course, was from “that Antichrist, that man of sin, and son of perdition, that exalts himself, in the Church, against Christ and all that is called God”, the Pope.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson can be seen standing in front of that quote in the picture below.

Let us not forget the blasphemous titles the Pope takes upon himself, in which he blasphemes all three Persons of the Godhead.

Firstly, he calls himself the ‘Holy Father’, despite a clear Biblical prohibition, directly from Jesus, on sinful man taking such titles upon himself.

Matthew 23:9 says: “And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.”

This is a clear blasphemy against God the Father.

Secondly, he calls himself the ‘Pontiff’ or bridge between God and man. This is a position which belongs solely to Christ.

1 Timothy 2:5 says: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”.

This is a clear blasphemy against God the Son.

Thirdly, he calls himself the ‘Vicar of Christ on earth’. This is a position which belongs solely to the Holy Spirit.

John 14:16-18, 26 says: “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”

This is a clear blasphemy against God the Holy Spirit.

The Pope is a rotten old blasphemer against almighty God, yet Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson is happy to promote this old deceiver to all and sundry.

Let us, too, never forget the blasphemous teachings of the Pope and the Roman Catholic Church which he heads up.

Rome teaches of a fictional holding cell between heaven and hell they call purgatory, a false notion with absolutely no Scriptural warrant. One need only read the story of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16 to see the immediacy of our souls going to heaven or hell when we die.

Rome teaches of prayer being offered up to Mary and to long dead so-called ‘saints’, despite there being not one incident in Scripture when legitimate prayers are offered to any but God.

Rome teaches the blasphemous Mass, in which they offer up Christ as a sacrifice repeatedly each and every day in Romanist chapels across the world, despite the Scriptures teaching that His sacrifice was once for all.

Hebrews 7:22, 24, 27: “By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament. But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.”

Worst of all, Rome pronounces its curse, or anathema, on any who believe the Biblical doctrine of salvation by faith alone in Christ alone.

It is so clearly taught in Scripture that salvation is of God, not of ourselves. With Rome, salvation is all doing; with Christ, salvation is all done.

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.”

Titus 3:5-7 says: “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

These are simple Scriptural truths, yet Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson and everyone else associated with that 24-7 Prayer conference are riding roughshod over the gospel message in their pathetic Popish pandering.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson has considerable form when it comes to compromise with Rome.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson spoke in a Romanist chapel in Belfast in February last year as part of the ecumenical Four Corners festival. He is pictured below speaking in that hub of Romanist deceit.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson addressed a meeting of the ecumenical Ballymena Church Members Forum and endorsed the ecumenical charismaniac Healing the Land festival last year.

Most ignominiously of all, Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson glorified the evil founder of the sinister Romanist order of the Jesuits, Ignatius of Loyola at his Emmanuel Church in October last year.

He continues to promote Rome to any who are foolish and deluded enough to listen to him and what a fearful condemnation he is building up for himself in eternity.

Proverbs 29:1: “He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.”

On so many occasions the shameful compromise of Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson has been set before his face, but again and again he has hardened his neck.

Will Alain Emerson not repent of his dreadful compromise with Rome, leading the souls of so many astray?

He is, sadly, not on his lonesome in this regard of leading people astray under the pretence that he is a man sent by God.

ABBA prayer dance supporting Pete Greig (pictured, above), who is trying to boost the Roman Catholic Church in Austria and, until last weekend, the overall leader of 24-7 Prayer (replaced by another character all true Christians should be wary of, Mike Andrea), was also a speaker at that conference.

And where was the conference held? May Street Presbyterian Church in Belfast, now ran by Carnmoney Presbyterian Church offshoot Carnmoney Central.

It will come as no shock to any readers of ‘Protestant Revival’ that such a venue hosted such an event.

Carnmoney Presbyterian Church is ran by a minister who is openly opposed to the Bible’s view on sodomy, the crowd-surfer Rev John Dickinson, who endorsed the ‘Christian’ LGBT campaigner Vicky Beeching and openly condemned the Presbyterian Church’s soft efforts to tackle sodomy within the denomination at its General Assembly.

Rev John Dickinson’s son, David Dickinson (pictured, below), is at the helm of Carnmoney Central and was more than happy to fellowship with a Papist priest when his charismaniac collective took over May Street at the start of the year.

Furthermore, Carnmoney Central, or May Street Presbyterian Church, has also played host to the Pope blessed ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ prayer event in each of the past two years.

The home of the Presbyterian Church, Assembly Buildings, located just a matter of yards from May Street Presbyterian Church, also hosted some of the events of the four day conference.

Why does the Presbyterian Church allow this event to be held on its property? It truly is shameful that promotion of Popery is taking place in any of its buildings, but surely much more grievous for it to be done in their headquarters.

Ezekiel 5:11 warns of the dreadful judgment which comes from God when buildings which were at one time used to glorify God are changed into something that does the opposite.

It says: “Wherefore, as I live, saith the Lord God; Surely, because thou hast defiled my sanctuary with all thy detestable things, and with all thine abominations, therefore will I also diminish thee; neither shall mine eye spare, neither will I have any pity.”

These buildings are polluted with Popery and religious compromise.

Let any reading this have no part of it, have nothing to do with it, and better still, speak out against it and share this article widely so as many as possible can be warned.

We are called to speak out against error and undoubtedly 24-7 Prayer is replete with error.

And let us never be afraid to take a stand for Christ and speak out against that which claims to be of Him but is so clearly not.

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

The ecumenical nature of the anti-abortion ‘For the Soul of the Nation’

Monday night past saw a large gathering of individuals from across Northern Ireland crowd into the ornate surrounds of Belfast Cathedral for a prayer gathering.

Their stated intention for the evening was to pray that God might intervene in the evil plans of men and women at Westminster (although Westmonster might be a better description given the monstrous plans it has for our country) to foist the massacre of unborn children on the people of Northern Ireland.

It was the stated intention of the organisers of For the Soul of the Nation to oppose steadfastly any efforts to facilitate abortion, ie baby murder, in our land.

It is certainly a commendable intention and indeed a commendable idea to have a prayer meeting to this end.

However, the fact remains we, if we are a believer, must be careful of the religious company we keep.

Agreement on a certain issue, or opposition to a common enemy does not give the believer carte blanche to associate spiritually with anyone sharing our point of view.

While in this matter those in attendance are to be praised for taking a public stand against this evil, many of those connected are not those with which we would wish to fellowship spiritually on a Sunday, so why would we do it on a Monday night instead?

Before you look at those taking part in or endorsing this event, the venue itself would be enough to start ringing alarm bells.

As alluded to in the opening paragraph, St Anne’s Cathedral, or Belfast Cathedral, played host to this gathering.

That church is a hub of ecumenical compromise and deceit, perhaps second only in Northern Ireland to the utterly anti-Christian Corrymeeela Community in Ballycastle on Northern Ireland’s north coast, with which it has very close links, naturally.

All manner of clerical compromise and religious rebellion is practised in the name of Christianity in that building (see here for just one example), so why would you want to identify with this polluted temple?

We understand that a building is not evil, but what it represents is rebellion against God and rejection of His Word.

God removes His presence from such a place.

Ezekiel 5:11: “Wherefore, as I live, saith the Lord God; Surely, because thou hast defiled my sanctuary with all thy detestable things, and with all thine abominations, therefore will I also diminish thee; neither shall mine eye spare, neither will I have any pity.”

Psalm 127:1: “Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.”

The glory has long since departed from Belfast Cathedral, Ichabod has been written across it, and to choose to hold an event in such a place is indicative of the event as a whole.

Also of note is the man who led the way in organising the event – David Legge (pictured, top).

Sadly, David Legge is a man who appears to have descended in recent years from a previously sound, orthodox position, and he has now got wrapped up in the charismatic, shallow, ecumenical easy-believist movement.

A fine article on the Take Heed Ministries website of Cecil Andrews details a fair amount of David Legge’s downgrade in the past few years. You can find it by clicking here.

We highlighted his compromise last year when he was the lead speaker at the ecumenical charismatic prayer gathering, ‘Healing the Land’, which had the backing of so-called Protestants and Roman Catholics.

Indeed it was marketed as for Protestants and Roman Catholics and the previously annual event was not held this year, with Healing the Land instead one of the groupings backing this event, For the Soul of the Nation. Given Healing the Land was held in late August last year and this at the very start of September, it is highly likely it was decided running the two so close together might hurt the attendance at both.

We believe such close links are highly instructive.

The list of organisations given by the Belfast Telegraph as being involved in or having given its backing to the event includes CARE in Northern Ireland, Christian Medical Fellowship, CVM Ireland, Divine Healing Ministries, Drop Inn Ministries, Ellel Ministries Ireland, Evangelical Alliance NI, Healing the Land, House of Prayer Ireland, Stauros, Transformations Ireland and 24-7 Prayer Ireland.

We are not aware of or familiar with several of those organisations, but the ones with which we are familiar are ones we should not wish to fellowship with normally, so why would we do it now?

The Evangelical Alliance is headed up by a man so frequently lining up with Romanism he has rightly earned the moniker ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas.

Indeed he has previously stated his great interest in hearing what “that Antichrist”, the Pope, had to say in relation to matters including abortion when he visited Dublin last year.

True Christians shouldn’t want to hear anything the Pope has to say, unless it is to state his church teaches a false gospel and he will cease to take upon himself the blasphemous titles which rightly belong only to God.

House of Prayer Ireland, meanwhile, is headed up by the leader of Crown Jesus Ministries, the charismatic pastor known only by the matey moniker of Mitch (pictured, below). He was one of the key speakers at the recent Open Skies Festival at which the disturbing form of prayer created by the more disturbing still, Bethel Ministries, called Sozo was promoted and taught to attendees.

And 24-7 Prayer Ireland, meanwhile, is headed up by another total sell-out to Rome, Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, lead pastor at the charismatic Emmanuel Church based in the Craigavon area.

He is such a habitual ecumenist, from promoting the founder of the Jesuits as an example to be followed to preaching in Romanist chapels (pictured, below), that to attend any event endorsed by him would immediately make you very concerned indeed. He appeared in a video on the For the Soul of the Nation Facebook page encouraging attendance at it.

These are just some of the characters backing this event – do you believe good fruit can come from such a polluted source?

The Bible says it cannot.

Luke 6:43: “For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.”

We are warned against ecumenical link-ups with those who act contrary to God’s will.

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

The example of the good king Jehoshaphat foolishly aligning himself with Ahab is one we ought to take warning from today.

First Ahab courts Jehoshaphat’s support and he foolishly says he and Ahab and his people and Ahab’s were the equivalent of one another. This was not true as Ahab was not only a wicked king but notably wicked.

1 Kings 22:4 shows the approach by Ahab and friendly receipt therof by Jehoshaphat. It says: “And he said unto Jehoshaphat, Wilt thou go with me to battle to Ramoth-gilead? And Jehoshaphat said to the king of Israel, I am as thou art, my people as thy people, my horses as thy horses.”

His alliance with the ungodly brought down God’s wrath and judgment.

2 Chronicles 19:2: “Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate the LORD? therefore is wrath upon thee from before the LORD.”

It is obvious that all true children of God should be opposed to the massacre of the unborn and it is good that so many people feel strongly about this.

However, a line of separation still needs to be drawn.

At the rally held in Belfast today (Saturday), one of the headline speakers was ‘Father’ Patrick McCafferty, a high-profile proponent of Romish deceit.

This individual frequently appears in the local media, standing up for false Romish doctrines.

We may agree with him on the importance of the life of the unborn, but we cannot agree with his false teachings which deny the gospel of Jesus Christ.

And this is the problem with the movement springing up around the pro-life campaign.

People are saying, ‘sure we all agree on this, let’s fight this battle together’, just as Jehoshaphat and Ahab did.

However, all this does is give ecumenists an excuse to follow their unbiblical desires and we must ever be wary of the tactics employed by the devil, no matter how attractive or wholesome they may appear to be.

2 Corinthians 11:14 tells us “Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light” and 1 Peter 5:8 urges us to “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”.

Don’t let the ecumenists use this most important matter to further their own corrupt ends and thus pollute true Christianity in our land still further.

Pete Greig and Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson’s 24-7 Prayer brings in Romanist Cardinal to Belfast Conference

Jeremiah 2:8: “The priests said not, Where is the Lord? and they that handle the law knew me not: the pastors also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit.”

Within the pagan Roman Catholic system, there is a great emphasis placed on the hierarchy of its most senior priests.

With the Pope, who blasphemously claims to be the ‘Vicar of Christ on earth’, at the top of this structure, the next rank below this is that of Cardinal.

Reaching this position means an individual is firmly entrenched in that Romanist system and is considered one of the most senior and admirable proponents of the false doctrines of Rome.

A Cardinal, more so than almost all other Romanist priests, is responsible for the false gospel of salvation by works which is outrageously taught by agents of Rome.

One would have thought, given that being the case, you would want to steer clear of recommending such characters to others. Indeed, one would have thought you would have warned others to steer clear of such characters.

Not so, however, with 24-7 Prayer and its leader Pete Greig (pictured, top) as they proudly trumpet the fact that Cardinal Christoph Schonborn, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Vienna will be the most important speaker at their upcoming global conference in Belfast, which takes place in October.

It is little surprise to see Pete Greig trumpeting and championing one of the most senior emissaries of Romanist deceit in the entire world.

After all, last autumn we at ‘Protestant Revival’ highlighted the shameful situation whereby Pete Greig was the guest speaker in the Romanist cathedral in Vienna, Austria’s capital, helping advise the Roman Catholic Church on how to lure more people into its grasp.

He is simply returning the favour as he brings the Romanist Archbishop of Vienna to Northern Ireland as the headline act at his conference.

In doing so, of course, he is striving to make the false doctrines of Romanism more acceptable and palatable to those who would be in attendance at this conference.

We will remind Pete Greig and all who read this what Cardinal Christoph Schonborn’s church teaches.

Cardinal Christoph Schonborn’s church teaches that there is a fictional (well, they claim it isn’t fictional) holding cell between heaven and hell called purgatory. This is despite there being absolutely NO Scriptural warrant for this whatsoever.

Cardinal Christoph Schonborn’s church teaches that we ought to offer prayers to Mary and various other long dead so-called ‘saints’. This is despite the Bible saying “there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 2:5).

Cardinal Christoph Schonborn’s church teaches the foul blasphemy of the Mass, where Christ is sacrificed again and again in every Romanist chapel every day throughout the world. This is despite the Bible saying that Jesus, “after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God” (Hebrews 10:12).

Cardinal Christoph Schonborn’s church teaches, worst of all, the hellish doctrine of salvation by works and sacramental merit. This is despite the Bible saying that “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” (Ephesians 2:8-9).

This is not even the full extent of the blasphemies of the Roman Catholic Church, but one would have thought it would be sufficient to warn any professing Christian away from it, but here we have Pete Greig and his 24-7 Prayer group recommending taking spiritual guidance from one of its most senior figures on earth.

What a sad and, indeed, dangerous situation this is.

Also due to speak at this conference is another figure who regular readers of ‘Protestant Revival’ will be familiar with – Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson (pictured, below), one of the lead pastors at the Emmanuel Church based in the Craigavon area.

Alain Emerson is the leader of 24-7 Prayer in Ireland and will no doubt have very strong links to this event, in addition to his preaching at it.

This is an individual who has preached in Romanist chapels (you can see him doing so in the image below) and who has despicably glorified Ignatius of Loyola, the ungodly founder of the Romanist order of the Jesuits, formed specifically to oppose the Counter Reformation and reaffirm the supremacy of the Pope in Europe.

You can read his lengthy ecumenical rap sheet by clicking here.

Why does Pete Greig think it appropriate to promote exceedingly senior practitioners of Papal priestcraft to his followers?

Why does Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson think it appropriate to appear alongside exceedingly senior practitioners of Papal priestcraft, and in doing so recommend it to his followers?

We would encourage anyone reading this to ask these questions of these men by whatever means available to them, whether it be by phone, email, social media or in person and challenge them politely over their refusal to obey the Word of God’s command to separation from falsehood.

While much noise will be made by these men and others about how much they claim to feel God moving and how many lives they claim are being transformed, they are not laying a solid foundation for any who follow them to walk on.

Rather they are encouraging them to, as the foolish man, build their house upon the sand.

What a sad legacy is being left by easy-believists and shallow charismatic leaders.

Dear reader, please do not cover your ears to this warning and let not the condemnation of the children of Israel be yours as well.

Jeremiah 5:31: “The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?”

Do not “love to have it so” that false teachers are given the pre-eminence in our land, but rather make the break from shallow charismatism and follow wholly the Word of God.

John 6:37: “him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”

Carnmoney Central hosting Pope endorsed ecumenical ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ event

Amos 3:3: “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”

The charismatic, easy-believist Carnmoney Presbyterian Church’s offshoot, Central Belfast, will this weekend further strengthen its ecumenical links with Romanism as it hosts a prayer gathering with the emphatic seal of approval of “that Antichrist”, the Pope.

‘Thy Kingdom Come’ is described as an “ecumenical prayer movement” and was started a few years ago by the Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby.

It has quickly become a major fixture in the calendar of a great many God-defying churches, and last month received an enthusiastic thumbs up from the Pope himself.

Speaking in a video alongside the Arch-apostate of Canterbury, Pope Francis said: “To you my brothers and sisters, with my brother Justin Welby, we want to tell you that we walk alongside you in this prayer, ‘Thy Kingdom Come’.”

So anyone taking part in this event has the Pope walking alongside them.

As the verse at the top of this article asks, can two walk together except they be agreed?

It is a rhetorical question, the answer is clear.

And the Pope’s endorsement would surely be enough to set off alarm bells for anyone who professes the name of Christ.

Not so for the folk at Carnmoney Presbyterian Church or Central Belfast, who are enthusiastically hosting this exercise in ecumenical compromise.

The same goes for the 24-7 Prayer movement, which is organising the event in Central Belfast.

However, given the track record of the individuals involved in these groupings, it is, sadly, unsurprising.

Central Belfast is led by David Dickinson (pictured, top), who was present at a ‘passing of the baton’ service from the old, dead, ecumenical May Street Presbyterian Church to his ever so trendy new church plant, Central Belfast.

David Dickinson was totally unperturbed that a Papist priest was in attendance at the service, doing a reading. Indeed, he took to Twitter in a mock celebration of being featured on ‘Protestant Revival’, an “achievement” those who despise earnest contention for the faith boast of to use as a mask for their departure from the Word of God.

It is a very clear example of those “whose glory is in their shame” (Philippians 3:19).

David Dickinson is the son of the crowd-surfing, LGBT ‘Christian’ endorsing Rev John Dickinson (pictured, below) of Carnmoney Presbyterian Church.

Rev John Dickinson has, just in the past week, been retweeting comments by the Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby encouraging people to take part in this tainted event.

It is stated online that Rev John Dickinson was ordained to the Presbyterian ministry in 1980, several years before the Presbyterian Church removed from its now watered down version of the Westminster Confession of Faith the strongest censures against Romanism and the Pope.

That means, at his ordination, Rev John Dickinson stated he believed the Pope was “that Antichrist, that man of sin and son of perdition”.

By endorsing an event which has the backing of “that Antichrist”, Rev John Dickinson is making a mockery of that confession he signed up to in 1980.

What a sad situation that is.

The pitiful state of the professing church is one which ought to distress us greatly, even as it did Jeremiah in those days of apostasy.

Jeremiah 9:1 says: “Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people!”

Let us mourn and lament the apostasy of our generation but, like Jeremiah, be dedicated to speaking out against it out of a concern and love for the never-dying souls of those leading and being led astray.

Jeremiah 20:9 says: “But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.”

While the church on May Street is hosting the event, it is being organised by 24-7 Prayer Ireland, a regional grouping of the 24-7 Prayer movement.

24-7 Prayer’s overall leader is none other than Pete Greig (pictured, below), the determined compromiser with Rome, who has been involved in advising the Roman Catholic church in Austria on how to lure more people in.

This is despite the fact Rome teaches a false gospel which will damn its devoted adherents to hell.

Rome rejects the precious doctrine of salvation by faith alone which is so clearly taught in the Bible.

Rome teaches salvation is works based, yet 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.”

It is truly a mystery why a professing Christian should want to help such a God-defying system as that of Rome.

Further to that, Pete Greig also endorsed the ludicrous, blasphemous notion of engaging in ‘prayer dancing’ to the music of ABBA, indeed claiming God had told him He was “enjoying it”.

What a mockery!

The local leader of 24-7 Prayer in Ireland is another highly inappropriate spiritual guide, the Jesuit promoting Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson of Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson (pictured, above) really put the tin hat on his disgraceful Bible rejecting antics by recommending the spiritual practices of the truly evil founder of the notorious Romanist order of the Jesuits, Ignatius of Loyola.

Ignatius of Loyola led the Counter Reformation, a devil inspired fightback against the Reformation, when the glorious light of the gospel was so wonderfully unveiled by God through Martin Luther, John Knox, John Calvin and many others.

And Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson promoted following the man who fought against the vital Biblical truth of salvation by faith alone.

Titus 3:5-7 further demonstrates this. It says: “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

Despite this clearly being stated by God’s Word, Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson is lining himself up with Ignatius of Loyola.

What a despicable thing.

Dear reader, please do not tie yourself up in the unholiness that is this ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ event.

Do not fellowship with the “unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them” (Ephesians 5:11).

This event is outrageous to God in so many ways:

1. It has the avowed support of the leader of the anti-Christian Roman Catholic system, the Pope.

2 It has Romanist novenas accompanying it.

3. The event is the brainchild of the utterly disgraceful excuse for a spiritual leader that is the Arch-apostate of Canterbury, Justin Welby.

4. The umbrella organisation over this event in Belfast is headed up by Pete Greig, a man helping Rome lure more people in.

5. It is organised locally by Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, a Jesuit promoter and rampant ecumenist.

6. It is being hosted at a church which is given over to ecumenism.

What a sorry event this truly is and we would implore anyone reading this to not only stay well clear of such an event, but also to warn others diligently of its dangers.

Let us be, as already referred to, grieved like Jeremiah over the plight of the state of religion in our land, but also to be unable to hold back from speaking out against it.

Even like Ezekiel, though he was at first angry at being told to speak out against the sin of his day, he could do nothing but follow God’s Word.

Ezekiel 3:14: “So the spirit lifted me up, and took me away, and I went in bitterness, in the heat of my spirit; but the hand of the Lord was strong upon me.”

May the hand of the Lord be strong upon each one of us who are vexed by the pollution of true Chrustianity in our land and may we each “earnestly contend for the faith”.

ABBA ‘prayer dancing’ Pete Greig and Rome loving Mike Pilavachi for Causeway Coast Vineyard conference

2 Timothy 4:2-4: “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

Last week on ‘Protestant Revival’ we highlighted two of the inappropriate characters who will be “preaching” and leading “worship” at Causeway Coast Vineyard’s ‘Encounter More’ conference, which will run from Thursday, 23 to Saturday, 25 May.

They are Havilah Cunnington and Jeremy Riddle, representatives of that frankly frightening hotbed of charismatic deceit, Bethel Ministries, whose blasphemies you can get an idea of by clicking here.

We simply couldn’t go into enough detail in one post to outline all the heretical speakers who will be purporting to offer spiritual guidance to the poor attendees of Causeway Coast Vineyard, but we can reveal that more brazenly ecumenical and God-defying speakers and worship leaders will be held up and exalted by those in charge at Causeway Coast Vineyard Church.

They are Mike Pilavachi (pictured, top) and Beth and Andy Croft of Soul Survivor church and Pete Greig (pictured, below), who runs 24-7 Prayer.

Pete Greig, for any readers who aren’t aware, is an out and out compromiser with Rome and a leading figure in the ungodly charismatic excesses which, sadly, figure prominently in so much of professing Christendom.

Indeed, he is at the extreme end of this.

And that can be seen in the fact that he claims God told him that He, the Almighty God of heaven, the eternal, unchangeable God who cannot abide sin, was “quite enjoying” a group of young women dressed up for a night out on the town coming into a prayer room he was in charge of, turning the stereo up (why it was there in any event is a good question) and proceeding to prayer dance to a song by Swedish pop group ABBA.

They apparently put their own ‘religious’ words to one of ABBA’s seemingly well-known songs, Super Trouper.

This is a blasphemy, yet Pete Greig has the gall to claim, not only that it was an acceptable form of worship, but that it was given the seal of approval of God.

What an outrage!

Furthermore, Pete Greig has played an active role in helping the Roman Catholic Church lure more people in to its evil clutches.

Pete Greig addressed the diocesan assembly of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vienna in St Stephen’s Roman Catholic Cathedral in the Austrian capital.

Tweeting afterwards, Pete Greig said: “Truly wonderful time in Vienna addressing 1,700 bishops, nuns, priests, laity from every church in the Archdiocese. Extraordinary signs of renewal – ‘unthinkable 9 years ago’ says the Cardinal.”

So Pete Greig was rejoicing in helping and seeing an increase in the number of people coming under the pagan influence of Rome.

Not only that, the 24-7 Prayer organisation which he heads up is an indisputably ecumenical organisation.

And its leader in Ireland is none other than Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, lead pastor at the truly Christ-rejecting Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area.

That, in itself, says it all.

The Jesuit promoter that is Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson leads 24-7 Prayer Ireland and indeed had Pete Greig as a celebrity guest at Emmanuel Church’s ‘Tobar’ conference last year, showing the strong links between the pair.

As for Mike Pilavachi and his Soul Survivor church, this man is another confirmed ecumenist.

His Soul Survivor church hosts summer camps each year and every year since at least 2016 these camps have offered the Roman Catholic Mass, a grievous blasphemy against God.

The Roman Catholic catechism says this of the Mass: “Because it is the memorial of Christ’s Passover, the Eucharist is also a sacrifice. In the Eucharist Christ gives us the very body which he gave up for us on the cross, the very blood which he “poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.””

Rome claims they are making a sacrifice of Christ in the Mass, yet the Bible says this in Hebrews 10:11-12: “And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God”.

Christ made “one sacrifice for sins for ever”, yet Rome repeatedly claims to be offering a sacrifice of Christ, thus serving to totally reject and blaspheme this most precious and crucial tenet of Scripture.

But Mike Pilavachi, whether he practices the Mass personally or not, serves to do the same by facilitating this blasphemous sacrifice.

But he will be offered an enthusiastic welcome to Causeway Coast Vineyard Church next week.

Mike Pilavachi has also demonstrated his enthusiasm for fellowshipping with heretics by being pictured alongside the Archbishop (read, Arch-apostate) of Canterbury, Justin Welby and Bishop Michael Curry, the sodomy-supporting American heretic who impressed the gullible and fellow-apostates at last year’s Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The trio are pictured together, below.

They were all at the main celebration of the utterly ecumenical ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ prayer initiative, founded by Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby and given the seal of approval of “that man of sin, and son of perdition”, the Pope,

‘Thy Kingdom Come’ has devotionals to Mary accompanying it and Mike Pilavachi was the main speaker at the event.

So the Pope and Causeway Coast Vineyard Church have something (plenty of things, most likely) in common – they both promote events headlined by Mike Pilavachi.

That is very instructive.

Having the approval of the Pope is certainly not something any of us should want.

John 15:18-19 says: “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.”

The Pope is undoubtedly “of the world” and will “love his own”. That would include the likes of Mike Pilavachi.

So why would Causeway Coast Vineyard want such characters as Pete Greig and Mike Pilavachi at their conference?

Well, Causeway Coast Vineyard’s previous lead pastor, Alan Scott, infamously said he was “all in” with the Pope during a sermon at Causeway Coast Vineyard.

And one of its leading figures, Peter Lynas (pictured, below), who also heads up the allegedly Evangelical Alliance, has repeatedly aligned himself with ecumenists and Romanists.

While it is little surprise to see a supposedly God-exalting church promote and fellowship with those who bring dishonour to the cause of Christ, it is imperative those who are saved and endeavouring to follow Christ take a stand against such error and compromise.

Psalm 94:16: “Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?”

God is asking the question and continues to ask it today – who will stand up, who will rise up for Him against those who act contrarily to His will?

Will we speak out against such falsehoods and their propagators? Or will we hold our peace?

Let us be bold and sound the alarm in this evil day and generation and refuse to sit by idly as such blasphemies are being committed in the name of Christ.

Joel 2:1: “Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain”.

Peter Lynas and Evangelical Alliance join forces with Jesuit promoter Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson

Jeremiah 14:10-14: “Thus saith the Lord unto this people, Thus have they loved to wander, they have not refrained their feet, therefore the Lord doth not accept them; he will now remember their iniquity, and visit their sins. Then said the Lord unto me, Pray not for this people for their good. When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and an oblation, I will not accept them: but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence. Then said I, Ah, Lord God! behold, the prophets say unto them, Ye shall not see the sword, neither shall ye have famine; but I will give you assured peace in this place. Then the Lord said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.”

Much polluted worship is offered up in our land today and, like the Pharisees of old, those behind it think “that they shall be heard for their much speaking” (Matthew 7:7).

Many believe that simply invoking the name of Christ will be sufficient to ensure their utterances reach the courts of heaven.

However, Psalm 66:18 tells us that “If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me”.

And surely such a peril lies before those organisers of the prayer event held at the gates of Stormont, the would-be seat of power in Northern Ireland, were we not held to ransom by murderers and their apologists, on Sunday past, 24 March.

The event was organised by 24-7 Prayer Ireland, which is an ungodly organisation in the first place.

It is headed up by Alain Emerson (pictured on the right of the image at the top of this article), lead pastor of the anti-Christian charismatic Emmanuel Church, based in the Craigavon area.

Alain Emerson’s ecumenical rap sheet is so long it would make your eyes water, hence his richly deserved moniker of Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson.

You can read his lengthy list of betrayal of the gospel of Jesus Christ by clicking here, which reached its nadir (thus far!) back in November when he engaged in whole-hearted promotion of that wretched Romanist Ignatius of Loyola.

He is, of course, the man who founded the dreadful Jesuit order of priests set up specifically to lead the Counter Reformation, which fought to suppress the glorious light of the gospel, so wonderfully unveiled by God through Martin Luther and others.

Ignatius of Loyola’s Jesuit order led the centuries long, bloody Inquisition, in which untold millions of Protestants, Jews and Muslims were murdered simply for not being Romanists.

But Ignatius of Loyola is a great “dude”, according to Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson.

And on Sunday past he was leading this ungodly event under the auspices of 24-7 Prayer, which was held to, ostensibly, petition God to intervene and restore working government at Stormont and allow everyone to agree over the interminable ‘Brexit’ saga.

Presumably they believe God wants the murderers and apologists for murder of Sinn Fein to reassume control of our affairs.

Another leading figure in the religious deceit spreading throughout our land, ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas (pictured on the left of the image at the top of this article), was also heartily promoting this event.

‘Papist’ Peter Lynas is another whose ecumenical rap sheet is the length of your arm, and you can read all about that by clicking here.

He is the leader of the Evangelical Alliance in Northern Ireland and is a senior figure at Causeway Coast Vineyard Church in Coleraine, County Londonderry.

Alain Emerson’s Emmanuel Church is a member of the Evangelical Alliance, and the strong links between him and Peter Lynas were further demonstrated on Sunday past when he publicly expressed his support for, and attended, this initiative.

Peter Lynas tweeted after the event, saying it was “so great to be part of this”.

And indeed, beforehand, he actually appeared in a video alongside Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson or, as he matily referred to him in the video, “Ally”.

Ironically, Alain Emerson is also an ally of Peter Lynas in the ecumenical deceit spreading throughout Ulster.

In that video, and another posted by Peter Lynas afterwards, he talks about people joining with “us”, putting himself as one of the senior figures in bringing this event together.

Now, there is nothing wrong with praying for our country, in fact it is Scriptural, but does Peter Lynas think that fellowshipping with a man who promotes the founder of the Jesuits and has repeatedly engaged with Romanism is going to achieve anything beneficial for Northern Ireland?

Peter Lynas, mind you, doesn’t seem to be too worried about raising a voice against Rome. Instead, he praised professing Christians such as the then Presbyterian Moderator, Rev Charles McMullen, for toddling down to Dublin to cower before the Pope.

With this constant rejection of God’s Word, can there be any excuse for being involved with the Causeway Coast Vineyard Church, or indeed any Vineyard Church, Emmanuel Church in Lurgan or Portadown in County Armagh, or any church which is a member of the Evangelical Alliance?

Scripturally, there is no excuse.

We are told in Ephesians 5:11 that we are to “have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them”.

Jude v 3 says we are to “earnestly contend for the faith”.

We cannot do that when we are wrapped up in churches who very clearly set themselves up in opposition to the Bible.

Let us not forget, as unfortunately so many in our country seem to have done, that Rome, to this very day, denies the all-sufficient death of Christ at Calvary and pronounces its curse on those who believe that precious doctrine.

Rome teaches of a fictitious holding cell between heaven and hell called Purgatory, it teaches of prayer to Mary and long dead so-called saints, it teaches of the worshipping of idols and images and practises the blatant blasphemy of the Mass, in which they offer Christ up as a sacrifice again and again and again.

All of these teachings are Biblically illiterate and repugnant to the Word of God.

So why do ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas and Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson so willingly and gleefully work alongside them?

Dear reader that is a question we would love you to put to them, particularly if you or some connection of yours is in any way linked to any of the churches they represent, and that includes any whose church is in the Evangelical Alliance. You can find out which churches are members of the Evangelical Alliance by clicking here.

Won’t you even challenge your religious leaders about their involvement in such an organisation, if they are in the Evangelical Alliance, and won’t you even contact these men directly to challenge them on their persistent, repeated unscriptural activities and alliances?

You can contact Alain Emerson by emailing alain@emmanuel-church.co.uk and you can contact Peter Lynas at nireland@eauk.org and mark your correspondence for his attention and no doubt it will reach him.

Let us not be afraid to speak out in this day of apostasy to challenge those who serve to undermine the cause of Christ in our land.

James 4:17: “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.”

Emmanuel leader Dave Wylie calls Papist monk a ‘hero of church history’

The Romanist connections of Emmanuel Church, based in the Craigavon area, continue to be strengthened and expanded upon by its lead pastors.

This is so much and so clearly the case that justifiably its best known figure has earned the moniker Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson.

In addition to speaking at, leading and organising a host of events in full agreement with Rome, last month we revealed the truly disgraceful, heretical message he preached in the Emmanuel Church in which he glorified Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Romanist Jesuit order and leader of the Counter Reformation.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson (pictured, below) then led the poor people in the congregation in getting them to engage in the ‘Spiritual Exercises’ of that evil man.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson is ably assisted in his ecumenical compromise by fellow lead pastors, Philip Emerson and Dave Wylie.

Both of those men took part in the ecumenical, charismatic ‘New Wine’ Conference in the summertime, at which three Romanist speakers were invited. Next year’s conference has already agreed to bring back one of those Papist deceivers, which you can read about by clicking here.

And we have now discovered that, in the same series of meetings held by Emmanuel Church, entitled ‘The Practice’, Dave Wylie has led the congregation into practicing what is today considered a Benedictine ritual meditation called Lectio Divina.

The Benedictines are an order of Roman Catholic monks.

This is another instance of Romish practices being taught and encouraged in what is allegedly a God-exalting church.

Speaking in the service from 7th October, which you can access by going to the Emmanuel Church Lurgan website, Dave Wylie introduces the Lectio Divina process thus: “There were four steps given by this monk called Guigo Carthusi I think is his name in 1173 and there’s been other heroes of church history that have used this”.

He is referring to a man known as Guigo II, a Carthusian Roman Catholic monk, who was a Prior of the Carthusian Order.

So Dave Wylie is holding on a pedestal an emissary of Papal deceit, describing him as a “hero of church history”.

It certainly is a bizarre thing for someone in his position to consider a leading figure in the Roman Catholic Church to be a hero of church history.

Which church is he referring to? Does Dave Wylie consider himself to be of the religious lineage of a Roman Catholic monk?

It certainly is interesting that Emmanuel Church leaders appear to be engaged in a repeated campaign to eulogise and promote architects of Romish practices and deceitful spiritual exercises.

Indeed, they are promoting that which is and those who are absolutely opposite to Biblical Christianity.

Lectio Divina, the practice espoused by Dave Wylie and which he claims has changed his life in his message brought to the Emmanuel Church, is a contemplative meditative method of reading the Bible.

It is essentially another form of mysticism, and that word is something which cropped up in Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson’s extolling of the leader of Protestant persecution, Ignatius of Loyola.

This is what Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson had to say: “He had some profound mystical experiences, and it was in those mystical experiences that he wrote what’s called his ‘Spiritual Practices’.”

All this is leading the church’s adherents into mystical experiences, an emptying of the mind, akin to the Popish practice of Taizé, which Alain Emerson led the practicing of in St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Belfast back in February of this year. The picture below shows him leading the service in that hub of Romanism.

And Lectio Divina is a process heartily recommended by the previous Pope, Benedict XVI, who said: “I would like in particular to recall and recommend the ancient tradition of lectio divina: the diligent reading of Sacred Scripture accompanied by prayer brings about that intimate dialogue in which the person reading hears God who is speaking, and in praying, responds to him with trusting openness of heart.”

What Lectio Divina teaches is of some new revelation from God to the reader, despite the fact we have a full revelation in the Bible, which God’s Word itself attests.

Revelation 22:18-19 says: “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”

We are not to add to or take from the Word of God, but this is what Lectio Divina does, often encouraging the reader to boil down the passage they are reading to one or two words or a single phrase, repeating it over and over to help enter a trance like state.

As well as there being no new revelation from God, we need no new revelation from God as His Word is perfect.

Look at Psalm 19:7-14: “The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward. Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord , my strength, and my redeemer.”

David yearned for the meditation of his heart to be acceptable to God, but the meditative practices espoused by Romish monks, Pope Benedict XVI and Dave Wylie are most certainly not acceptable unto God.

There appears to be consistently polluted worship being offered up in Emmanuel Church and we would implore all readers to warn their friends, family and neighbours to stay clear of this and other churches where such blasphemy is taught.

Such polluted worship is condemned in very strong terms by God, and a great example of this is in the prophecy of Amos, when he, under God’s instruction, said in Amos 5:21-23: “I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies. Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts. Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.”

Such churches are notable for the emphasis on ‘praise’ music, where as loud a racket as possible is made in the name of worship of God, but is in fact more akin to a rock concert.

Dear reader, please turn away from churches which are teaching such mysticism and Romanism, and instead focus on what the Bible actually has to say, and not what some would-be theologians prattle on about, leading many poor souls astray.

1 Timothy 4:1: “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils”.
