Ecumenical charismaniacs looking to Rome for revival at Nutts Corner

The ongoing charismatic efforts to degrade the spiritual landscape in Ulster continues apace, and they will focus their efforts next month on an ecumenical prayer initiative called ‘Healing The Land’.

Indeed, the event, scheduled for Saturday, 8th September at Nutts Corner, is being marketed as for Protestant, Catholic and those of no denomination – an ecumenist’s dream.

Perhaps Nutts Corner is a very apt venue for an easy-believist event, not just because of its name but for its reputation as a place to purchase something cheaply.

All manner of ecumenists have given their backing to the event and indicated their intention to be there.

Among them is David McClay (pictured, below), minister in Willowfield Parish Church in Belfast and leader of the ecumenical New Wine Ireland group whose recent conference featured at least three Papist speakers.

Also joining in is the elder statesman and one of the three lead pastors of Emmanuel Church, based in the Craigavon area, Philip Emerson, who also took part in the New Wine Conference.

And he is joined by another lead pastor at Emmanuel Church, Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson (pictured, top), back to his old tricks of consorting with the anti-Christian system of Rome.

We will remind readers of Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson’s track record for Papal pandering.

In February, he spoke in St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Belfast as part of the ecumenical ‘Four Corners’ Festival, at which he endorsed the ecumenical, ritualistic, anti-Christian form of praise called Taiz√©. He is pictured below next to the altar where the blasphemous Mass is offered by the priest.

He then addressed a meeting of the ecumenical Ballymena Church Members Forum, which includes the Roman Catholic Church, before hosting another ecumenical prayer meeting with the blessing of the Pope himself, called ‘Thy Kingdom Come’.

And Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, Philip Emerson and David McClay have appeared in videos uploaded to the event’s facebook page imploring more people to join in their linking arms with Rome.

Indeed, on the same page there is a video featuring an agent of Rome, Patrick McCrystal of Human Life International, a Roman Catholic pro-life group, endorsing this prayer event.

In his brief video, he quickly gets across the ecumenical nature of the event. He says: “We the people of God in Northern Ireland, Catholic, Protestant and all non-denominational, we have to turn back to God…”

Now of course any who have rejected or forsaken God must turn back to Him, but Patrick McCrystal is describing Roman Catholic adherents as the “people of God”.

While it is possible that in some simple way, some individual Roman Catholics may have come to faith in Christ, Patrick McCrystal is speaking in general of Roman Catholics and that is quite simply wrong.

Romanism doesn’t teach true salvation, therefore its followers cannot be described corporately as the people of God.

That is a tragedy of great magnitude, but Rome teaches a salvation of merit through good works.

However, 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.”

Isaiah 64:6 reminds us that “all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags”, so Rome and, distressingly, an increasing number of so-called Protestant churches, teach that presenting our good works, or “filthy rags” to God will be enough to secure a spot in heaven.

And here we have supposedly Christian leaders giving credence to this false notion that the Roman Catholic Church is of God.

What utter blasphemy!

Rome denies salvation by faith alone in Christ alone, as we have already stressed, it teaches of a fictitious holding cell between heaven and hell called Purgatory (you’ll not find that anywhere in Scripture), it teaches of prayer to Mary and saints (1 Timothy 2:5 directly contradicts that) and teaches the utter blasphemy of the Mass, whereby they sacrifice Christ repeatedly, this despite 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”.

These circles simply cannot be squared, indeed Rome pronounces its anathema, or curses, on any who teaches of salvation by faith alone in Christ alone.

That being the case, and Papists being comfortable with this prayer event, one must draw the conclusion that Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, Philip Emerson, David McClay and others must not believe in salvation by faith alone in Christ alone.

And if they do, then they are guilty of the most dreadful of compromise, to deliberately permit the propagators of what they believe to be error into their midst to draw people away into sin and confusion.

The character of such individuals as Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, Philip Emerson and David McClay as compromisers and consorters with Rome is well established.

However, there is another character who has given this anti-Christian event his seal of approval, and in the most emphatic way as he is to be the speaker at it, and that is David Legge (pictured, below).

A man raised in the truth of the gospel by his own testimony on his website, who attended and then ministered at a sound fellowship such as the Iron Hall in Belfast, concerns have been springing up about his associations and comments in the past few years.

From citing the teachings of a Carmelite monk (a Papist of course) to claiming that our pride, rather than sin, is what chiefly separates us from God, to now speaking at this overtly ecumenical event, David Legge, now working as an itinerant preacher, certainly appears to be deteriorating in his stand.

This very gracious article (now kindly updated by the author to include a link back to this article) on the Take Heed Ministries website articulates a great deal of the concerns surrounding his downgrade, which you can read by clicking here.

By associating with this event, David Legge can only bring further questions upon himself.

Indeed, given the brazen nature of this ecumenical gathering, David hasn’t got a ‘Legge’ to stand on if he claims he was unaware of the utterly inappropriate company he is keeping at this event.

We would certainly encourage readers to share and spread this article widely so that he can have the nature of the other endorsers of this event brought clearly into his focus.

The prayers offered up at this event are highly unlikely to be received in heaven as error is mixed right through this gathering.

God will not regard such prayers from the unconverted, of which there will be many gathered at Nutts Corner, not least (but not just) the avowed Papists who will be in attendance.

Proverbs 15:29: “The Lord is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.”

Unfortunately a lot of this will be about show and about doing something considered to be popular and worthy, rather than about living genuinely Christian, sanctified lives.

It is like the criticism God had of the insincere penitence of the children of Israel in the days of Hosea.

It says in Hosea 7:14: “And they have not cried unto me with their heart, when they howled upon their beds: they assemble themselves for corn and wine, and they rebel against me.”

While they made much noise to God, there was no great sincerity in what they had said, but rather a desire to restore former comforts they had lost in their rebellion against God.

The verse they use to promote the event is a most wonderful verse and one we have used on numerous occasions here.

It says 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.”

However, when the organisers of this event say that Romanists are part of God’s people and when the organisers themselves are noted ecumenists, they then distort this passage to suit their own ungodly ends.

Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, warned that “a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump” (1 Corinthians 5:6) and this is what is being done here.

Truth is being mixed with error, indeed a character such as David Legge, with a previously sound reputation and whose apparent downgrade would be unknown to many, may well be being used to help bring credibility to the event beyond traditional charismatic circles.

Please pray that David Legge will pull back from such compromise and please pray for a genuine revival in our land.

It will not come from the ‘Healing The Land’ prayer initiative, but only from prayer from those sold out to God, not those who are sold out to Rome.

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.”

Have a glorious Twelfth – and remember the full meaning of Protestantism

2 Thessalonians 2:14-15: “Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.”

One of our main concerns at ‘Protestant Revival’ is what appears to be the emergence of what has become known as ‘cultural Protestantism’ in Northern Ireland.

These are people loyal to the British Crown, steadfastly opposed to the incremental progression of Irish republicanism and resolutely unionist in their outlook.

However, sadly all too many are not mindful of the true meaning of Protestantism and while they remember, rightly, the Glorious Revolution, the Battle of the Boyne and King William III, they have forgotten that these events were acts of God to protect those loyal to Him, the King of Kings.

Today is a day of celebration of tradition, a colourful exhibition of pageantry and appreciation of our Protestant heritage.

But an absolutely indispensable aspect of our Protestant heritage is the precious doctrine of salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8-9).

As Protestants, we ought to be utterly opposed to the corrupt system of salvation by works blasphemously espoused by the Roman Catholic Church.

This is what prompted our forefathers to take their stand for Christ and it was that message which was gloriously blessed by God in the Protestant Reformation 500 years ago and in numerous revivals in the centuries since.

Not least in Ulster can we remember with fondness the stories of revival God has chosen to bless our land with.

In 1859, there was a revival started which saw an estimated 100,000 souls swept in to the Kingdom of God.

Again in the 1920s, God blessed the newly formed Northern Ireland with revival under the preaching of WP Nicholson and many others.

And in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, God saw fit, even through the darkest days of the IRA’s murder campaign, to bring thousands to Christ through the preaching of Rev Ian Paisley and others.

This is a land gloriously blessed by God but we have allowed the wretchedness and wickedness of this world to gain a great deal of traction in Ulster.

We are calling on all true Protestants, those bought by the blood of Christ, to reaffirm this message loud and clear.

And if you are a ‘cultural Protestant’, please remember that what we celebrate today is our civil and religious liberty and the glorious good news of the gospel, which can be summed up so beautifully in one verse of God’s inspired, inerrant Word.

John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

We all find ourselves in the same position as Pontius Pilate did when faced with Jesus Christ.

Matthew 27:22: “Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ?”

What will you do with Jesus? Will you reject Him and spend all eternity in the pit of hell? Or will you make the step our forefathers gave their lives for and confess your sins and put your faith and trust in Him for salvation?

Joshua 24:14-15: “Now therefore fear the Lord, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the Lord. And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

If you are as yet unsaved, make this truly the most glorious Twelfth of July and put your faith and trust in Christ.

Muslim festivals and sodomite celebrations – Arlene Foster’s diary for June

Proverbs 13:20: “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”

The leader of the largest political party in Northern Ireland, the DUP, which was founded by Free Presbyterian minister Rev Ian Paisley, a man used mightily of God, has had a very unChristian schedule for the second half of June.

Arlene Foster began her companionship with fools on Saturday past by endorsing the pagan religion of Islam when she attended the Eid celebration, held by Muslims to mark the end of Ramadan, during which adherents fast between sunrise and sunset.

Islam is a religion which outright denies the divinity of Christ. Instead, they claim he is just another prophet, like Mohammed, pointing the way to Allah, their name for God.

Of course, there are many other criticisms which could be made of Islam, including the worryingly large number of believers who think killing non Muslims is legitimate, nay, commendable.

However, it is sufficient to highlight Islam’s blasphemous view of Jesus in order to condemn it as a false religion and, therefore, one which Arlene Foster should steer clear of.

Rather than that, she attended the big Muslim celebration in south Belfast on Saturday past and even allowed herself to receive a henna ‘tattoo’ (it is a non-permanent marking), a marking with its roots in the polytheistic Hindu faith, but which has been adopted by some Muslims in more recent times. The application of this tattoo is pictured at the top of this article.

Readers from outside Northern Ireland may not be entirely familiar with the current political situation here, but Arlene Foster’s party, a Protestant party, is involved in a power-sharing government in Belfast with the murderers and murderer apologists of Sinn Fein, a Roman Catholic party inextricably linked with the barbarous terrorist organisation, the IRA.

The wisdom of such a venture has been dramatically undermined in particular in the past 18 months as that government collapsed, amid Sinn Fein calls, among others, that gay marriage should be legalised in Northern Ireland. The DUP, which still has a strong Christian influence (though even its staunchest supporters would surely admit it is a far cry from what it once was in its faithfulness to God’s Word), is the only political barrier to the legalising of gay marriage in this country.

In that context, the next diary entry of Arlene Foster’s of grave concern is her acquiescence to the sodomy lobby by attending an event promoting “the contribution of the LGBT community n Northern Ireland”.

It is a strange event for the “LGBT community” to be having, given that their squawks are always for “equality”, yet they are happy to have an event singling out the achievements of people who happen to be a sodomite over those involved in heterosexual relationships.

But it is stranger still that a professing Christian such as Arlene Foster (she attends the Church of Ireland) sees fit to attend an event celebrating people whose lifestyle is in direct opposition to God’s ordained natural order.

The issue of homosexuality is one we have visited on a number of occasions lately and it is not one we wish to dwell on at length, but it must be clearly stated that homosexuality is an “abomination” (Leviticus 18:22).

It must also be clearly stated that it is “against nature” and “unseemly” (Romans 1:26,27).

It has been surmised in the Northern Irish daily papers that these efforts at outreach to Muslims and sodomites are an attempt to soften her party’s image.

However, all they are softening is the DUP’s stand for Christ.

We acknowledge there are many who think that ship has already sailed, but these are new departures for the DUP and we are saying to Arlene Foster and the DUP to stop in their tracks and turn back to Christ.

It is argued by the worldly that the route to securing a better lot for the Protestant people in Ulster is to embrace sodomy, gay marriage, abortion and various other reprehensible policies.

However, we can only truly prosper when we turn to Christ and follow Him.

A fine example of a leader turning to his natural enemies in his time of trouble, rather than to God, and suffering dire consequences, can be found in the case of King Ahaz.

It says n 2 Chronicles 28:16-23: “At that time did king Ahaz send unto the kings of Assyria to help him. For again the Edomites had come and smitten Judah, and carried away captives. The Philistines also had invaded the cities of the low country, and of the south of Judah, and had taken Beth-shemesh, and Ajalon, and Gederoth, and Shocho with the villages thereof, and Timnah with the villages thereof, Gimzo also and the villages thereof: and they dwelt there. For the Lord brought Judah low because of Ahaz king of Israel; for he made Judah naked, and transgressed sore against the Lord. And Tilgath-pilneser king of Assyria came unto him, and distressed him, but strengthened him not. For Ahaz took away a portion out of the house of the Lord , and out of the house of the king, and of the princes, and gave it unto the king of Assyria: but he helped him not. And in the time of his distress did he trespass yet more against the Lord: this is that king Ahaz. For he sacrificed unto the gods of Damascus, which smote him: and he said, Because the gods of the kings of Syria help them, therefore will I sacrifice to them, that they may help me. But they were the ruin of him, and of all Israel.”

Arlene Foster has been the subject of incredible levels of abuse over the past 18 months, and, like Ahaz, is at a low ebb and trying desperately to reclaim her former glory, as it were.

Ahaz turned to the king of Assyria, a nation which repeatedly attacked the children of Israel and hated God’s people, to try to save his kingdom.

Arlene Foster is turning to sodomites and Muslims, groups of people who are resolutely opposed to God’s people, to try to save her political supremacy.

Ahaz found that the Assyrian king “distressed him, but strengthened him not”.

Arlene Foster will find the same thing, her cowering before the enemies of God will get her nowhere.

She will find, like Ahaz, that “they were the ruin of him, and of all Israel”.

This was the warning given to the children of Israel just as they were about to enter Canaan and Arlene Foster needs to have these words in her head as she plots the course ahead.

They are found in Joshua 23:6-13: “Be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that is written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside therefrom to the right hand or to the left; That ye come not among these nations, these that remain among you; neither make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause to swear by them, neither serve them, nor bow yourselves unto them: But cleave unto the Lord your God, as ye have done unto this day. For the Lord hath driven out from before you great nations and strong: but as for you, no man hath been able to stand before you unto this day. One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the Lord your God, he it is that fighteth for you, as he hath promised you. Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love the Lord your God. Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave unto the remnant of these nations, even these that remain among you, and shall make marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to you: Know for a certainty that the Lord your God will no more drive out any of these nations from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from off this good land which the Lord your God hath given you.”

Ulster is under threat from Irish republicanism, Romanism, apostate Protestantism and secularism.

The only safe passage through this storm is with Christ at the helm and His Word as our map.

It is not yet too late for Arlene Foster to pull out of this meeting, it is not yet too late for Arlene Foster to turn to Christ as her Guide.

Please, dear reader, pray that she and our leaders will consult God rather than think tanks or opinion polls, and put their faith and trust in Christ to guide us through.

Romanists, sodomites and murderers: the friends of Presbyterian minister Rev David Latimer

2 Corinthians 11:13-15: “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”

There are some ministers who seem to be trying their very best to offend God as often as possible and in as many ways as possible, yet portray themselves to be his servant at the same time.

One such man is Rev David Latimer, minister of First Derry Presbyterian Church, who has still further deepened his apostasy by giving his blessing to the baptism of a child in the care of a homosexual couple in a Roman Catholic Church.

This is the man who cosied up with one of the most notorious unrepentant murderers in the history of Northern Ireland, the former IRA commander Martin McGuinness.

Such actions were lauded by the media, for whom the promotion of godliness and decency is often far from the top of their priority lists, but associating wilfully with unrepentant murderers is not pleasing to God.

The Sixth Commandment reminds us “Thou shalt not kill”, yet Martin McGuinness, whether he pulled the trigger or not, headed up a brutal gang of killers which took the lives of around 2,000 people over a 30 year period in Northern Ireland, with the victims being killed largely simply because they were Protestant.

Psalm 1:1 reminds us it is much more profitable to avoid keeping company with characters such as Martin McGuinness. It says: “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.”

At this point, we will move to address the inevitable chorus of the apostate, which squawks: “But Jesus dined with sinners”.

Yes he did, but did He stoop to their level? Did He walk in the counsel of the ungodly? Did he stand in the way of sinners, ie be in the places where sinners love to be? Of course not.

Jesus did not compromise Himself, nor could He abide sin, yet Rev David Latimer, by his own admission in a recent BBC article, sacrificed 50 members of his congregation in order to get in the limelight next to Martin McGuinness, a man who never, to his dying breath, expressed an ounce of remorse for the despicable atrocities he was responsible for.

Rev David Latimer loves the “praise of men more than the praise of God” (John 12:43).

His form well and truly established, Rev David Latimer has now revealed his latest public rejection of God’s Word.

We can only assume this revelation was made in the light of the Presbyterian Church voting against allowing homosexuals to become members.

We should be grateful of course this vote was lost and not “despise the day of small things” (Zechariah 4:10) but it is a damning indictment of how far the Presbyterian Church has fallen that this was even up for debate and there were those in favour of such a move. Furthermore, their general attitude to the attendance of homosexuals at the church is far from satisfactory as tolerance of such open sin in the pews, whether those in attendance are members or not, is not something which should be encouraged.

Speaking to the BBC, as he no doubt delighted to do, Rev David Latimer revealed he had connived with a Papist priest to purport to give God’s blessing to a child being raised by two homosexuals.

This is despite God ordaining in the Bible that the family unit was to consist of a father and a mother, not two of one or the other.

Genesis 2:24 says: “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”

Ephesians 5:31: “For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.”

This is very clear, yet Rev David Latimer believes he knows better than God what God thinks is proper behaviour.

In the video on the BBC website, he said he had been approached by the mother of one of the women in this abominable relationship.

He continued: “I could have said ‘no, we’ll not, no no way. But the priest and I chatted and we had conversations with that couple and we agreed to baptise that little baby in a Catholic Church and I was there representing the Presbyterian family.”

Rev David Latimer notes he could have said no and thereby pleased God by refusing to endorse such a relationship. But he, of course, acted differently and instead of consulting God’s Word, he consulted a Roman Catholic priest.

Rev David Latimer then confirmed he had been part of the decision making process in choosing to have the child baptised in the Roman Catholic Church. Presumably this means Rev David Latimer believes the Roman Catholic Church is an appropriate place for anyone.

We will remind Rev David Latimer of what the Westminster Confession of Faith, which he signed at his ordination, says regarding the Pope.

“The church is about opening its doors for people, wherever they are coming from, whatever direction they’re approaching the door, I want that door to be open and I want everybody to appreciate that if God so loved the world and I don’t, then I can’t claim to be godly.

Chapter 25, Paragraph 6 says: “There is no other head of the Church but the Lord Jesus Christ; nor can the Pope if Rome, in any sense, be head thereof; but is that Antichrist, that man of sin, and son of perdition, that exalts himself, in the Church, against Christ and all that is called God.”

Rev David Latimer clearly does not believe this and should not be permitted in the pulpit of any so-called Protestant church.

His comments about the doors being open are a red herring. Anyone can come to a church, but that does not mean the church should endorse sin to make people feel better.

This is like the spirit of those false prophets in the days of Jeremiah.

It says in 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?”

And Rev David Latimer puts the tin hat on his diatribe of deceit by claiming it would be ungodly to oppose the lifestyle of the two women raising that wee boy.

How blasphemous!

To endorse the ungodly lifestyle of those two women by giving his blessing to the baptism of the child is the ungodly action, made even worse by rolling over to the pagan corruption of Christianity that is Rome by encouraging the child to be baptised into a system which knows only how to damn people to hell.

If you are in any way connected with this church or know someone who is, please share this with them to try to persuade them to abandon such a dreadful compromise as Rev David Latimer.

And please pray that such apostates will be ejected from their pulpits and that the ministers in our land will be faithful to the gospel, for that will be a massive building block on the road to revival.

Methodist President Rev Laurence Graham attends and preaches at Roman Catholic pilgrimage

The President of the Methodist Church in Ireland has just today further emphasised his love of Popery by being the guest speaker at a Roman Catholic event at a well known Romanist pilgrimage site.

Rev Laurence (or Lawless) Graham (pictured, below) was uttering his ecumenical message of mean compromise at Lough Derg, one of the best known Papal pilgrimage sites in Ireland.

It is located just a few miles over the border with the Republic of Ireland, close to the County Donegal village of Pettigo. Pilgrims travel to what is called Station Island on the Lough and it is there they hold their three day pilgrimage at any point over the summer months.

Due to the conditions over winter time, the island is only accessed between May and October, meaning the supposedly Protestant Rev Lawless Graham has wasted little time this year in making his way over to bring shame on himself and his church.

Rev Lawless Graham in this one action is guilty of many of the abominations specified in Proverbs 6:16-19: “These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.”

The feet of Rev Lawless Graham certainly have proven to be swift in running to mischief and several other of those abominations have been carried out through this despicable compromise with the darkness of Rome.

Courting Romanist favour is nothing new for Rev Lawless Graham as just a few weeks ago it was revealed he was one of the so-called Protestants who co-signed a grovelling letter to the Pope, begging him to come to Northern Ireland during his planned trip to the Republic of Ireland this summer, something we addressed on this page at the time.

The event he addressed today was called a ‘Day of Friendship and Prayer’. It ran from 10.30am through to 3pm, with Rev Lawless Graham delivering his soft soap soliloquy of ecumenical compromise at high noon.

As usual with the Roman Catholic Church, which likes to extract as much money as possible from its deluded adherents, cheerleaders and hangers on, there was a fairly hefty fee of £22 to listen to this drivel. However, that fee did include your boat trip and refreshments. Quite the bargain then!

Directly after Rev Lawless Graham’s cosy message with his Papist fellow travellers, there was a prayer service.

We will repeat the most pertinent question we have asked on numerous occasions here at ‘Protestant Revival’ – to whom were these prayers being addressed? Were they praying to God, or were some of those in attendance praying to Mary or saints, as Rome utterly blasphemously teaches.

It is, we believe, necessary to clearly state the position of the Word of God on this matter. It says in 1 Timothy 2:5: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”.

That is what the Word of God says. It doesn’t matter what some old Romanist tries to say or what some apostate allegedly Protestant rascal tries to say, prayer is to be addressed to God and God alone.

Rev Lawless Graham was there in the company of the Prior of Lough Derg, ‘Father’ Laurence (or La, apparently) Flynn, who himself is a notable friend of Protestants who want to sell out their heritage to Rome.

‘Father’ La Flynn was one of the founding clergymen in the Fermanagh Churches Forum, a God defying ecumenical grouping, the despicable actions of which we have previously addressed.

And this unholy mingling which is being practiced by Rev Lawless Graham has been forewarned to us through Scripture, as have the dreadful consequences.

However, it has been wholly disregarded by apostates like Rev Lawless Graham.

Psalm 106:34-36,39-42 says: “They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the Lord commanded them: But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works. And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them. Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions. Therefore was the wrath of the Lord kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance. And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them. Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.”

There are many points which could be made and comparisons drawn here, but we are told they “mingled among the heathen” before being given into “the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them”.

Rome is ever the same, it hasn’t shifted an inch since the Reformation and it still hates Protestantism virulently. This is why it is so pleased to have so-called Protestant fools falling prostrate at its feet because it has Protestantism where it wants it.

This situation is unfolding in front of us in Ulster and unless Protestants wake up to this sell-out of their heritage, then they that hate Protestants will rule over Protestants.

We need revival in this land desperately today.

We need apostate clerics thrown out of their pulpits today.

We need prayer that God will move again in our land.

We need prayer that God will make his mighty arm bare, uplift this land and cause it to be on fire for Him once more.

Please, dear reader, pray that God will cast down the enemies of the gospel, be they so-called Protestant or Roman Catholic, and send a mighty revival to this land.

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.”

‘Peace, peace, when there is no peace’ – lying Protestant clerics mark 20 years of having sold Ulster down the river

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”.

Leading apostasy in Antrim – Archdeacon Stephen McBride

Ecumenical fervency is very much the order of the day in the town of Antrim, and the chief architect of this Biblical betrayal is Archdeacon Stephen McBride.

A veteran ecumenist, the ‘Venerable’ Dr Stephen McBride is minister of All Saints Parish Church in the town.

During the recent ‘Holy Week’ events in the town, a lot of unholy mingling of the seed was going on, with many of the churches involved.

The ecumenical celebrations got underway on the Monday prior to Easter with an ‘Inter Church Prayer Service’ in St Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church. Given Rome teaches the praying to Mary and saints, surely we are entitled to ask the question, as we have done previously, to whom were they praying?

The Bible clearly teaches we are to pray to God alone. 1 Timothy 2:5 says: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”

This service was followed up with another prayer service, this time in St Comgall’s Roman Catholic Church, also in Antrim. The speaker at the meeting was a so-called Protestant, Alastair Wallace (pictured), of Christian Fellowship Church in the town.

And the tin hat was put on this ecumenical betrayal on Good Friday, when the Antrim Clergy Fellowship organised its annual “walk of witness” through the town in a brazen act of defiance against God, which we featured earlier this week.

It began at Antrim Methodist Church (Minister: Rev Michael Gregory) before moving to Archdeacon Stephen McBride’s apostate abode of All Saints Parish Church. From there it moved to St Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church, before finishing off at High Street Presbyterian Church (Minister: Rev Colin McDowell).

By some distance the longest serving clergyman at their respective church in this area is Archdeacon Stephen McBride, who has spent much of the past three decades in the town.

And we have uncovered numerous details about him which mean he ought not to hold any position within the church.

He has a remarkably cosy and long-standing relationship with Rome, even for an apostate. A Belfast NewsLetter article states that these links go as far back as 2002, and no doubt much further.

It says that in 2002 the then priest in St Comgall’s “asked Archdeacon McBride to preach at a parish Novena” in order to put on a “more public display of togetherness”.

What is a Novena? It is a Roman Catholic ritual and according to the ‘Pray More Novenas’ website, “a Novena is made up of nine days of prayer and meditation, usually to ask God for special prayer requests or petitions. Novenas are often used to ask specific saints to pray for us”.

So a Novena involves the invocation of saints, despite the Bible’s teaching in 1 Timothy 2:5, as we have already referred to above.

Wikipedia continues and says: “The practice grew by the Middle Ages to include pious prayers for nine days before a feast in honour of a saint identified on a liturgical calendar. By the 11th century, the Novena practice had become a means in Christianity of praying to petition personal or spiritual favour to a saint, such as Virgin Mary. After the Reformation and Counter-Reformation era, the Catholic Church formally approved Novenas, in particular through the papal approvals of a large number of Novenas by Pope Pius IX.”

So the Novena has the stamp of approval from the Pope, “that man of sin, and son of perdition”, the man who blasphemously sets himself up in God’s place.

Wikipedia goes on to say: “The practice of the Novena is based in early Christianity, where masses were held for nine days with devotional prayers to someone who has died.”

So the Novena has its roots in prayer for the dead, which is a reference to the Romanist lie of purgatory, an absolutely anti-Biblical construct of the Roman Catholic Church. When we die we either go straight to heaven or straight to hell. There is no in between.

Look at the rich man in Luke 16. We are told in verses 22-23: “…the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments…”

There was no in between for the rich man. He died and went straight to hell. And hell most assuredly exists, despite what Pope Francis might like to think.

The notion of praying for the dead is further demonstrated as a fraud when we look at 2 Samuel 12:18-23: “And it came to pass on the seventh day, that the child died. And the servants of David feared to tell him that the child was dead: for they said, Behold, while the child was yet alive, we spake unto him, and he would not hearken unto our voice: how will he then vex himself, if we tell him that the child is dead? But when David saw that his servants whispered, David perceived that the child was dead: therefore David said unto his servants, Is the child dead? And they said, He is dead. Then David arose from the earth, and washed, and anointed himself , and changed his apparel, and came into the house of the Lord , and worshipped: then he came to his own house; and when he required, they set bread before him, and he did eat. Then said his servants unto him, What thing is this that thou hast done? thou didst fast and weep for the child, while it was alive; but when the child was dead, thou didst rise and eat bread. And he said, While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell whether God will be gracious to me, that the child may live? But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.”

David ceased praying for his child when he died. He didn’t keep praying, he didn’t hold a Month’s Mind mass, light a candle or pay a priest to earn his son a place in heaven.

David acknowledged no more could be done and acknowledged the comfort in the fact his son, who had not reached an age of understanding to call on God for salvation, was in heaven. He also rested in the comfort that he, as a saved sinner, was going to meet his son again in heaven.

Can you rest in that comfort? Are you saved? Have you repented of your sin to God and asked to be washed in the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ?

Jonah 2:9 says: “Salvation is of the Lord.” It can be found nowhere else. Acts 4:12 says: “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

We MUST be saved and Acts 16:31 tells us: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.”

Our sins, no matter how great, can all be washed away. Isaiah 1:18: “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”

You can obtain forgiveness of God today. 1 John 1:9 says: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Don’t delay, 2 Corinthians 6:2 says: “…behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.”

The fact that Archdeacon Stephen McBride preached at this Novena, an act disgracefully repeated soon after by then Antrim Methodist minister Rev Jack Moore, with all the lies and blasphemies it encapsulates, is frankly horrifying.

However, this is what Archdeacon Stephen McBride has to say about his blasphemous betrayal of true Christianity.

He said: “It was one of the most memorable days of my ministry.

“It speaks volumes for the maturity of the ecumenical relationships that have been developed in the town that it was possible for the two clergy from the Reformed tradition to preach at a Catholic Novena mission without creating a fuss from either congregation, because the time was right for this to happen, and our people were encouraging further such exchanges to be developed.

“It is a day I will never forget.”

One can be sure it is a day God will never forget, if Archdeacon Stephen McBride doesn’t repent.

It is also indicative of the disgraceful shepherding of the flock that Archdeacon Stephen McBride, permanent minister in All Saints Parish Church since 1995, has demonstrated, that he brought his congregation to the point where they were “encouraging further such exchanges to be developed”.

His job is to declare the full counsel of God, in season and out of season. Jeremiah was instructed by God that, though he be faithful in declaring His Word, the disobedient children of Israel would not listen to him. This, however, was not to stop him from declaring God’s message, and it ought not to stop anyone else.

Jeremiah 7:27: “Therefore thou shalt speak all these words unto them; but they will not hearken to thee: thou shalt also call unto them; but they will not answer thee.”

Archdeacon Stephen McBride is abandoning this charge and many others to which he should be paying close attention.

We will remind Archdeacon Stephen McBride of the 39 Articles, which are supposed to govern his church, the Church of Ireland.

Article 22, for example, concerning purgatory, says: “The Romish Doctrine concerning Purgatory, Pardons, Worshipping and Adoration, as well of Images as of Relics, and also Invocation of Saints, is a fond thing, vainly invented, and grounded upon no warranty of Scripture, but rather repugnant to the Word of God.”

Does Archdeacon Stephen McBride find Rome repugnant? Clearly not.

We’ll share another one of his 39 Articles with him now.

Article 31 states: “The Offering of Christ once made is that perfect redemption, propitiation, and satisfaction, for all the sins of the whole world, both original and actual; and there is none other satisfaction for sin, but that alone.

“Wherefore the sacrifices of Masses, in the which it was commonly said, that the Priest did offer Christ for the quick and the dead, to have remission of pain or guilt, were blasphemous fables, and dangerous deceits.”

Does he share that view? If not, then why he is being allowed to stand in a pulpit that is supposed to be used to honour God, when he is using it to undermine the gospel?

We are also told in a biography of Archdeacon Stephen McBride that he is a fan of various types of music, including rock music and Gregorian chant.

A particular favourite band of his is Led Zeppelin, a rock group noted for its links to the occult, something which is expressly warned against in the Bible.

Deuteronomy 18:9-12 says: “When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.”

His love for Gregorian chant, meanwhile, is further indication of his love affair with Rome. Gregorian chant is the music of the Roman rite and is performed in the Mass.

Why would any Protestant minister want to listen to music used in the blasphemous ‘worship’ of the Mass?

This is one of the many question marks which must be placed against Archdeacon Stephen McBride. If anyone reading this knows him or anyone connected to his church, we would encourage you to challenge him on these matters and encourage those you know to do so too.

We are living in an age of departure from God and the road to revival will be paved with faithfulness to God’s Word. Let us pray that God will take a dealing with apostates in the pulpits spewing out their deceits, so that once again we will see a revival in Ulster.
