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”.

Ecumenists close Henry Cooke’s old church, May Street Presbyterian as charismatics take over

Old dead ecumenism in the traditional churches has led to the ringing of many a death knell on old churches and May Street Presbyterian Church is the latest to fall victim to the onward march of ecumenical compromise.

Once the clerical domain of that great Presbyterian figure, Rev Henry Cooke, who led the purging of Arians and Arminians from his denomination, May Street has long been reduced to a husk of a church, hence its closure as of last week.

Sad as it is to see a church go, it is equally sad to see it will now be put to use by some of the leading figures in the charismatic movement in Northern Ireland.

Central Belfast, a church under the auspices of Carnmoney Presbyterian Church, will take over the running of the church.

Readers of ‘Protestant Revival’ will be well aware of Carnmoney Presbyterian Church.

We first highlighted the antics which go on under its roof when we pointed out the foolish, irreverent action of its minister, Rev John Dickinson, who allowed himself to be carried out of the church in a ‘crowd surfing’ manner by the foolish people in attendance.

This action, in fairness to Rev John Dickinson (pictured, below), was prompted and encouraged by that leader of the 24-7 Prayer movement and ardent ecumenist, Pete Greig.

We previously wrote about him helping the Roman Catholic Church to lure more people through its doors and about how he claimed God had told him that He was “quite enjoying” a bunch of young women prayer dancing to the music of ABBA.

And it was his prompting which led to the embarrassing incident in Carnmoney Presbyterian Church, which saw Rev John Dickinson later giving a rather sheepish interview to the Belfast Telegraph indicating he didn’t plan to repeat such a ludicrous activity.

However, Rev John Dickinson was then entirely responsible for his actions when he tweeted his excitement at reading the life story of Vicky Beeching, noted Contemporary Christian Musician and so-called ‘gay Christian’, who describes herself as an ‘LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) equality campaigner’.

The book he expressed delight at reading is entitled ‘Undivided: Coming Out, Becoming Whole, And Living Free From Shame’, hardly a subtle title.

Regardless, these are the credentials of the minister of the parent church which has taken over the May Street Presbyterian Church building.

The old congregation has left after 190 years of worship on that site and, glorying in ecumenical compromise to the end, had a Romanist priest in attendance to wave them off.

‘Father’ Michael McGinnity of the nearby St Malachy’s Roman Catholic Church, which, a Belfast Telegraph article reporting on the matter says has “long been associated” with May Street Presbyterian Church, did a reading at the meeting.

May Street Presbyterian Church played host to a meeting of the ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ prayer initiative last May, organised by the local leader of the 24-7 Prayer movement, Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, the glorifier of Jesuit founder Ignatius of Loyola and lead pastor of Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area.

‘Thy Kingdom Come’ is an ecumenical prayer initiative and has the backing of Rome, who produce prayer guides for those looking to take part in it.

And there it was, devoted to ecumenism to the last, even though departure from God is what closed it.

The church has amalgamated with Fisherwick Presbyterian Church and is the second ecumenical Presbyterian church to close in the past few months. It is following hot on the heels of Fortwilliam and Macrory Presbyterian Church, itself an amalgamation and formerly led by ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll, a woman who expressed her desire for ecumenism to make progress in Northern Ireland at a Week of Prayer for Christian Unity event in a Roman Catholic chapel in County Tyrone.

She is also the Deputy Chief Commissioner of the (In)Equality Commission which brought the disgraceful legal action against Asher’s bakery.

This clearly demonstrates that ecumenism, which is a departure from God’s Word, leads to destruction, as has befallen Fortwilliam and Macrory and now May Street Presbyterian churches.

Jeremiah 29:17-19 speaks of how the people of Israel were warned about their apostasy yet failed to listen to God’s servants and they were taken into captivity by the Babylonians.

Ulster has had many faithful servants speaking out against ecumenism and other forms of religious betrayal. However, so many have refused to listen and May Street is the latest to reap this sorry harvest.

Those verses say: “Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Behold, I will send upon them the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, and will make them like vile figs, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil. And I will persecute them with the sword, with the famine, and with the pestilence, and will deliver them to be removed to all the kingdoms of the earth, to be a curse, and an astonishment, and an hissing, and a reproach, among all the nations whither I have driven them: Because they have not hearkened to my words, saith the Lord, which I sent unto them by my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them; but ye would not hear, saith the Lord.”

The service at May Street was called a ‘Dawning Of A New Era’ service, which is something of a fairly euphemistic badge to put upon death.

However, there is an element of accuracy to this as well as it refers to the new era of charismatism taking over as the chief interest of much of professing Christendom.

Just as straightforward ecumenism was de rigueur a number of decades ago, the charismatic movement, which eschews traditional, Biblical theology in favour of creating a venue of entertainment, is now all the rage.

The old dead churches are striving to survive by bringing in the rock bands and turning church into a concert and, in many cases, are currently enjoying a surge in popularity.

And, with Central Belfast, headed up by Rev John Dickinson’s son, David Dickinson (pictured, top), that is exactly what is happening.

David Dickinson also presumably didn’t have an issue with ‘Father’ Michael McGinnity being in attendance at the meeting as he too was there to apparently receive a special baton from May Street’s clerk of session, Arthur Acheson.

This is also a fine allegory for the passing of the baton from old style ecumenism, which has led to the death of so many churches, to the new charismatic ecumenism.

It is no less deadly, but gives the appearance of life as its adherents jump up and down to the latest inane, shallow compilations put together by the revered worship leaders so beloved in such establishments.

Dear reader, please don’t be taken in by this attractive to the senses veneer applied to the same old dead ecumenism which leads so many astray.

Instead, separate yourself from such and dedicate yourself to actually honouring God, rather than claiming to do so while engaging in actions which run contrary to that very claim.

1 Peter 1:15-17, 23: “But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.”
