Presbyterian ‘minister’ preaching at Romanist novena celebrating group of priests

Take a moment to look at and re-read the headline at the top of this article.

That is an utterly factual headline, yet it is hard to believe it is true, isn’t it?

Reading that, surely the question comes to mind, ‘what on earth are they doing that for?’

It’s definitely a good question.

Other more specific questions might also spring to mind, such as:

Why would someone who claims to be a minister of Jesus Christ be celebrating a Romanist grouping?

Why would someone who claims to be a minister of Jesus Christ want to take part in a novena, a prayer event which often includes the invocation of Mary?

These, also, are very good questions, and ones which ought to be addressed to ‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson.

It is she who will be engaging in this repugnant betrayal of Jesus Christ and, indeed, of her own ordination vows.

Now, of course, she ought not to be in the position of ‘minister’ as this in itself shows ‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson’s utter rejection of God’s Word.

1 Timothy 2:11-12 outlines this very clearly for ‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson and all those who likewise seek to overthrow God’s Word in this most important matter. It says: “Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.”

However, even leaving that to one side briefly, this is a very grave offence against God.

‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson will be preaching at the ‘Novena of Hope 2019’ at The Graan, a Romanist chapel near Enniskillen in County Fermanagh which, for a long time, has been the clerical home of noted Romanist, ‘Father’ Brian d’Arcy (pictured, below).

It is being held to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the Romanist grouping of the Passionists.

A novena is a nine day prayer event and this one will run from Saturday, 23 March to Monday, 1 April, with ‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson to sow her ecumenical, heretical seeds of deceit on Thursday, 27 March.

Wikipedia gives some of the history of the novena, including its links to Mariolatry and its seal of approval from the Papacy. It 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.”

When ‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson took her ordination vows in 1977, she would have stated her objection to the Pope as “that antichrist, that man of sin and son of perdition” by signing the Westminster Confession of Faith. What a mockery she has made of her vows!

‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson is well known for her ecumenical betrayal of Protestantism and, indeed, in a recent interview with the Belfast Telegraph, conducted by another old ecumenist, Alf McCreary, she indicated her indifference to those who would criticise her in her religious practices.

We don’t expect that, should she read this, it will make the slightest difference to her, though we may pray God will lift the scales from her eyes, but we want to urge Presbyterians or those who are friendly with anyone in that church to separate from this church and urge their friends and family to do likewise.

This is a woman who, despite her years of ecumenical compromise, remains in great standing in the Presbyterian Church, and was handed an honorary doctorate by the Presbyterian Church in 2001, years after she had left full time ministry to launch her anti-Christian Restoration Ministries.

Why does the Presbyterian Church still hold her in high regard?

It truly is confusing to anyone who refers to the Word of God for their spiritual guidance, rather than their own fancies, notions or thoughts.

The Presbyterian Church has emphatically refused to follow the Scriptural command to separate from false religion.

2 Corinthians 6:14-17 is crystal clear on this: “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you”.

The phrase within those verses asking “what agreement hath the temple of God with idols” is most pertinent in this instance.

An article in the Romanist Irish News this past week highlights that a specially created “icon”, or image, has been created to mark this novena.

This is quite clearly an expression of idolatry, yet ‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson is evidently more than happy to identify with such Christ rejection.

While Rome conveniently omits the Second Commandment from their own Ten Commandments, this doesn’t mean it is not still relevant.

We’ll remind readers and in particular ‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson and any who would seek to defend her or her denomination for harbouring her even yet, what the Second Commandment is.

Exodus 20:4-5 says: “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.”

“Thou shalt not make any graven image”, it says. Perhaps ‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson needs to read this closely, although even a cursory examination makes it abundantly clear she is endorsing paganism.

The closing words of 1 John further demonstrate this with utter clarity.

It says in 1 John 5:19-21: “And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.”

John, in his parting comments, speaks of the discernment given to the child of God to know the difference between righteousness and wickedness. He then continues and says in the next God inspired breath, as it were, to “keep yourselves from idols”.

So we can clearly see the discerning Christian is to stay well clear of idols, yet here is ‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson preaching at a meeting which has had a specially commissioned idol created for it.

What a blasphemy!

Again, the Word of God is very clear and critical of these idols and those who make and serve them.

Psalm 135:15-18 says: “The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not; They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouths. They that make them are like unto them: so is every one that trusteth in them.”

This icon, which is dumb, deaf and mute, created for the novena ‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson is preaching at is an example of heathenism and God says, through the Psalmist, that those who make them and those who trust in them are like those idols.

It is quite the condemnation, and yet here we have a Presbyterian ‘minister’, held in high regard by her church, so much so that on two occasions her name was put forward to be Moderator, joining in with senseless heathenism.

Is there a single Presbyterian minister who will raise their voice against such a disgraceful situation? Even one? Sadly, based on what we have seen over the years, it would seem highly unlikely, though we would be very pleased to be proven wrong.

Better still, will any Presbyterian minister come to their senses and realise the Bible forbids women from being ministers and speak out against it before separating from the Presbyterian Church?

Here, too, is a challenge for any minister in a church which remains faithful to the Word of God, to speak out against such wretched rejection of the Word of God.

Let us speak out for Christ.

Dear reader, won’t you please urge anyone you know who is involved in that church to “come out from among them, and be ye separate”.

Our reward for holding a Biblical separatist position is great, for we are told at the end of that 18th verse of 2 Corinthians 6 that if you do that, God “will receive you”.

Let us separate ourselves unto God, rather than stay compromised and polluted by fellowship with that which has ignored, overthrown and rejected God’s Word.

And, if you are as yet unsaved and perhaps attending a church which fails to preach the gospel, won’t you even come to Christ for salvation.

The way of salvation is simple, we are told that we must repent of our sins and believe on Jesus Christ.

Jesus says in Mark 1:15 that we are to “repent ye, and believe the gospel”.

1 John 1:9 tells us: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Acts 16:31 says: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved”.

It is Jesus’ blood which makes us fit for heaven, not the sacramental system of Rome, not the namby pamby social gospel of so many apostate Protestant churches, not church attendance, not financial contribution to the church, it is nothing but the blood of Jesus.

1 John 1:7: “…the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”

Women helping lead ecumenical sell-out to Rome

Jeremiah 9:13-18: “And the Lord saith, Because they have forsaken my law which I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice, neither walked therein; But have walked after the imagination of their own heart, and after Baalim, which their fathers taught them: Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will feed them, even this people, with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink. I will scatter them also among the heathen, whom neither they nor their fathers have known: and I will send a sword after them, till I have consumed them. Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Consider ye, and call for the mourning women, that they may come; and send for cunning women, that they may come: And let them make haste, and take up a wailing for us, that our eyes may run down with tears, and our eyelids gush out with waters.”

The Women’s World Day of Prayer is just one of the many events, held largely in what used to be Protestant churches but who have long since let go of any real semblance of Biblical Protestantism, which seeks to promote unity with the pagan Romanist system.

And last Friday, 1 March, we are aware of no less than 55 such outright rejections of God’s Word being held throughout our land.

No county in Northern Ireland remained untouched by this ecumenical compromise as the land was covered with rebellion against God.

Of course, it was done under the guise of Christianity, as the Protestant, Biblical principles of earnest contention for the faith (Jude v 3) and reproving the unfruitful works of darkness (Ephesians 5:11) were thrown out the window, making the whole event nothing more than a sham.

And this sham crying out to God in these prayer events are reminiscent of the professional, false mourners employed in the days of Jeremiah, as referenced in the Scripture passage at the top of this article.

Just as they were employed to make a show of mourning and lamentation for the judgments of God befalling Judah, so, too, these women are leading a pretence of earnestness and zeal towards God.

However, by their involvement in such an ecumenical affair, both hosted in Romanist churches and advertised in Romanist parish bulletins, they are utterly subverting the gospel of Christ.

The teaching of Rome is so utterly contrary to the teaching of God’s Word that to even try to marry the two together is offensive.

Lest any should try to defend the purity of the Women’s World Day of Prayer, on its own website, it describes itself as “a worldwide ecumenical movement”.

And this is how it refers to the involvement of Romanists.

“It was not until the reforms of the second Vatican Council that Roman Catholic women were able to take a full part in the day of prayer and in 1967 the day was celebrated at a special service in Westminster Cathedral, by invitation of Cardinal Heenan.

“In 1969 the World Union of Catholic Women’s Organisations encouraged Roman Catholic women worldwide to participate in WDP and to make this possible WUCWO moved their own day of prayer from March to May.”

So Roman Catholics were eagerly invited to pray alongside supposed Protestants as soon as the Pope had given them the go-ahead.

Let us reiterate, this is the Women’s World Day of Prayer website saying this, condemning themselves with their own words.

And it is perhaps the subject of prayer which demonstrates one of the greatest contrasts between the teaching of Rome and the teaching of the Bible.

Rome teaches of prayer to Mary and to long dead so-called ‘saints’, despite this being repugnant to the Word of God.

Here is an example of a very common prayer said during the rosary by Roman Catholics.

“Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O merciful, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! Amen.”

What a dreadful utterance this is, and one which is made every day by millions of the poor, deluded adherents of Rome.

Where the address of “holy Queen” comes from, we do not know, but it certainly does not come from the Bible. At no point throughout the Scriptures is Mary referred to in this manner. It is a plainly unscriptural title.

They speak of “crying” to Mary and “sending up their sighs” and call her a “most gracious Advocate”.

This is clearly blasphemous nonsense, as the Bible very obviously demonstrates. Our sole advocate is Jesus Christ, we don’t approach the Father through Mary, but it is only through His precious Son.

1 John 2:1: “My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:”

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

The prayer also includes the blasphemous phrase “show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus”.

We don’t approach Jesus through Mary, or through anyone else, we can come directly to Him.

Hebrews 4:14-16: “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

This is a very common example of the sort of prayers offered up by Roman Catholics, and as such why would anyone want to join in prayer with those who freely utter such grave blasphemies?

Yet here we have it being encouraged and practised throughout our land.

It matters not whether devotions to Mary were expressed at any of these meetings, this is a very clear demonstration of the rejection of God’s Word on the crucial matter of separation from false worship.

Were any of the Roman Catholic devotees at these meetings clutching rosary beads as they prayed? Some of these events were held in Romanist chapels, meaning all those in attendance were surrounded by the idols and images which are adored by Roman Catholics.

Those Romanist chapels involved were in Limavady, County Londonderry, Glenavy, County Antrim and in Kilmore, County Armagh.

We have compiled a list of churches of whom we are aware of having hosted a celebration of this ungodly festival, which is at the bottom of this article.

If you or anyone you know is connected with any of these churches, won’t you please separate yourself or implore those you know to do so.

We ought to put faithfulness to God and His Word far above some misguided loyalty to a church which ignores and shuns its responsibilities.

Hebrews 13:13: “Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.”

‘Who cares if you’re Protestant or Catholic? Rome is an inspiration’, says Arch-apostate of Canterbury

Jeremiah 2:8, 11-13: “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. Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit. Be astonished, O ye heavens, at this, and be horribly afraid, be ye very desolate, saith the Lord. For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.”

Such is the rotten nature of so much of the professing church today, it is difficult to be truly surprised by what religious leaders say.

It can certainly be shocking, but rarely is it surprising.

However, the Archbishop (though Arch-apostate would be more accurate) of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has managed to do just that after he said how wonderful it is if Church of England clerics switch to be servants of Rome.

It may perhaps not be especially surprising that this is his view, given his disgraceful ecumenical track record, but what is surprising is how he has chosen to publicly articulate that view.

In a shocking rejection of the precious gospel heritage the entire UK is blessed to have, when asked his opinion on Church of England vicars switching to Rome, the following is what this reprobate had to say:

“Who cares? I don’t mind about all that. Particularly if people go to Rome, which is such a source of inspiration.

“I had an email from a very old friend, an Anglican priest who has decided to go to Rome. I wrote back saying: ‘how wonderful! As long as you are following your vocation, you are following Christ’.

“It’s just wonderful. What we need is for people to be disciples of Jesus Christ. I don’t really care whether it’s the Church of England or Rome or the Orthodox or Pentecostals or the Lutherans or Baptists.

“They are faithful disciples of Christ.”

Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby, let us say this now – you are a disgrace.

Rome, to this very day, outright rejects and places its curse (not that we care one iota about Rome’s curse, we’d be more concerned by its blessing) on any who teach or believe the precious Scriptural doctrine of salvation by faith alone in Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8-9).

They cannot be “faithful disciples of Christ” when they deny his all-sufficient sacrifice on the cross at Calvary. They are Christ rejecters and so is Arch-apostate Welby by saying what he has said.

It is strange that any church leader should applaud his ministers for leaving.

It is stranger still that he should say it is “particularly” wonderful if they go to Rome.

Why should that be so?

Romanism is totally at odds with true Christianity, it is a pagan corruption.

Rome teaches of prayers for the dead and to so-called ‘Saints’, it teaches of the exaltation of the Pope, it teaches of the fictitious holding cell between heaven and hell they call purgatory, it teaches of the blasphemous worship of Mary, it teaches of the idolatrous adoration of relics and statues, and as we have already said, it teaches of a works-based salvation.

These are all utterly repugnant to any true Christian.

If Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby doesn’t find these repugnant, there is a clear conclusion to be drawn.

Let us remind Arch-apostate Welby of the 39 Articles which are supposedly the governing principles of his church and which he, as the most senior figure worldwide of the church, is supposed to be foremost in upholding.

Article 11, on the justification of man, says “we are accounted righteous before God, only for the merit of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ by Faith, and not for our own works or deservings.”

Rome outright denies this, so how can Arch-apostate Welby support such heresy or those who switch to a church teaching such heresy?

Article 19, speaking of the church, has this to say regarding Rome. It says: “As the Church of Jerusalem, Alexandria, and Antioch, have erred, so also the Church of Rome hath erred, not only in their living and manner of Ceremonies, but also in matters of Faith.”

Arch-apostate Welby clearly doesn’t believe Rome has erred, otherwise he would mourn the loss of ministers to Rome. Instead, he calls Rome an “inspiration”.

Article 22, speaking of purgatory, says the following: “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.”

Prayer to saints, the adoration of relics and images and purgatory are all, by Arch-apostate Welby’s churches governing principles, “vainly invented” and “repugnant to the Word of God”.

How can Justin Welby remain in his position? How can it be deemed proper that such a character remain in situ?

He truly is like the prophets in the Scripture passage at the head of this article, he has “walked after things that do not profit”.

Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby is a broken cistern which can hold no water.

He is the encapsulation of the Saviour’s warning regarding the false teachers of his day.

Matthew 15:14 says: “Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”

Christ told His followers to stay well clear of the false teachers as they will lead those who follow them into the ditch.

And that is where Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby is heading headlong for.

You may say you are not in the Church of England and you do not support this man, but are you in the Church of Ireland? If so, your church is implicated by being part of the Anglican communion.

Even if not, does your church or church leader consider Justin Welby an admirable man to follow?

How can you know, you might ask?

Well, does your church take part in the ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ prayer initiative started by Justin Welby just a few years ago? It is an overtly ecumenical event for which the Roman Catholic Church is fully on board, so much so they have devised ‘Novenas’ to accompany the festival.

One such church heavily implicated in ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ is the Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area.

Their lead pastor, Alain Emerson, organised the largest ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ gathering in Northern Ireland, which was held at the hub of ecumenical deceit of May Street Presbyterian Church in Belfast, which you can read about by clicking here.

We need to be separated from those who work iniquity in our land and from those who have rejected the truth of the Bible to cosy up with the likes of the Church of Rome, which knows only how to send its poor deluded adherents to hell.

Revelation 18:4-5: “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.”

East Belfast Mission facilitates ecumenical festival headlined by Jesuit priest

2 John 1:9-11: “Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”

The ungodly, ecumenical quasi political, quasi religious event that is the Four Corners Festival took place in the opening part of February, with lots of ever so worthy events taking place, organised by lots of ever so worthy people.

Chief among these events and people was the keynote visit of a Jesuit priest, called ‘Father’ Gregory Boyle, to speak at the Skainos Centre on the Newtownards Road in the overwhelmingly Protestant east Belfast area.

Indeed, that geographical area also gives its name to the organisation which owns the Skainos Centre – the East Belfast Mission (EBM).

Readers of ‘Protestant Revival’ may well be familiar with the East Belfast Mission as we highlighted this grouping, itself an offshoot of the Methodist Church, very recently.

One of its key figures is Rev Andrew Irvine, who outrageously addressed a Week of Prayer for Christian Unity service in a Romanist chapel in Lurgan, County Armagh back in January.

This is a quote from Skainos’ own website, which says: “Skainos gathers under one roof all aspects of the work undertaken by EBM including homelessness services, employability, social economy projects, youth work, family work, community development and peace building as well as a vibrant worshipping community.”

So we have confirmation that Skainos is an East Belfast Mission ran centre.

And this means that the Skainos Centre, and therefore the East Belfast Mission and Methodist Church, is complicit in not only hosting an ungodly ecumenical event, but one at which a Jesuit priest was the star attraction.

Let us not forget who the Jesuits are.

They are the Romanist order set up in response to the Protestant Reformation, with the sole purpose of reaffirming the supremacy of the Papacy in suppressing the rise of Protestantism, and that by any means necessary.

Untold millions of Christians, Muslims and Jews were killed throughout the centuries long Inquisition led by this Romanist order.

This is an organisation whose founding aim was the snuffing out of the gospel light so gloriously unveiled and spread abroad by God through the likes of Martin Luther, John Calvin and John Knox.

Yet here we have the East Belfast Mission facilitating a representative of this wretched order, officially called the ‘Society of Jesus’ (look out for the initials SJ after a priests’ name to indicate one), spreading his deceits. The current Pope, in fact, is a Jesuit.

What a wretched situation this is.

Sadly, this is far from the first instance of the promotion of Jesuits and Jesuitry we have highlighted on this page.

Last February, we featured a God-defying Lenten prayer service in St Anne’s Cathedral in Belfast, always a hub of ecumenical folly, at which Jesuit priest ‘Father’ Tom Leyden was the speaker. The prayer service was held in the Ignatian tradition, referring to Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuit order, which you can read about by clicking here.

And in November, we brought to light the absolutely disgraceful promotion and glorification of Ignatius of Loyola by Emmanuel Church leader Alain Emerson. You can read his truly heretical comments by clicking here.

Now here we have again more people who would claim to be servants of God allowing Jesuits into their premises to propagate their lies.

In addition to Rev Andrew Irvine, another prominent minister who is responsible for what goes on at Skainos is Rev Brian Anderson (pictured, top).

He is currently the President of the Irish Council of Churches, which gives you a clear indication of his ecumenical stance.

Both Rev Brian Anderson and Rev Andrew Irvine are culpable in allowing this proponent of Rome’s deceptions to take the stage in the building belonging to the East Belfast Mission.

Rev Brian Anderson is the Superintendent of the East Belfast Mission and Rev Andrew Irvine (pictured, below) is the Chief Executive.

Why do they allow a Jesuit priest to have a platform in their building?

Why do they allow such a God-dishonouring spectacle as the Four Corners Festival to be held in their building?

Do they believe the Roman Catholic Church leads people to salvation?

Do they believe there is merit in the Romanist teachings of prayer to Mary and long-dead so-called ‘Saints’? Or the fictitious venue of purgatory? Or the Mass? Or Rome’s outright denial of salvation by faith alone in Christ alone?

What do they actually believe?

To allow your premises to be used for the promotion of ecumenism and especially for a meeting pandering to a Jesuit, is a violation of God’s command to “be ye separate” (2 Corinthians 6:17).

And to reject God’s Word and disobey His commands is a foolish and dangerous thing.

Deuteronomy 4:1-2 highlights this. It says: “Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the Lord God of your fathers giveth you. Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.”

There can be no doubt this is a diminishing of God’s commandment which God in this passage advises them to follow, “that ye might live”.

Death follows the rejection of God’s commandments.

This is a battle we must all wage in our own lives, to remain in obedience to God.

Further down the same chapter in Deuteronomy 4:9 we are told: “Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons’ sons”.

Let us be determined not to throw off the commandments of God.

Sadly, this is what has happened in much of the professing church of Christ in the past century. Sons and sons’ sons have not been instructed as they ought to have been, making way for all manner of Christ rejection to be front and centre of so many churches.

And this attitude of disobedience has created the sorry state in religious affairs which allows the like of a Jesuit priest to be welcomed in with open arms by two of the most senior figures of the Methodist Church to an event organised by a Presbyterian minister.

We as true believers are partly responsible for allowing these who bring dishonour to the name of Christ to engage in their wicked acts.

Have we been active enough in our opposition to these individuals?

Have we just tutted about it privately to those we know are in agreement with us?

Have we just turned our heads the other way so as not to look upon what is being done by those children of disobedience?

As the people of God, we need to “earnestly contend for the faith” in any which way we can and send a message out loud and clear to the compromiser, ecumenist and apostate that we will not sit back and allow them to drag our land down with their rejection of the true gospel of Christ and drag poor, blinded sinners to hell by refusing to “declare all the counsel of God” (Acts 20:27).

Let us be bold like Elijah who, when faced by that old reprobate Ahab, who had the cheek to accuse God’s servant of being a troublemaker, straightly told Ahab the right way of things.

1 Kings 18:17-18: “And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel? And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father’s house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the Lord, and thou hast followed Baalim.”

Elijah told Ahab that his rejection of God had brought the trouble upon Israel and it is Ulster’s deepening apostasy, led by the architects of ecumenical deceit in our land, which has brought such trouble to our doorstep.

We have had plenty of warnings, but still the people of God slumber in failing to speak against it as they should.

Isaiah 9:13-16: “For the people turneth not unto him that smiteth them, neither do they seek the Lord of hosts. Therefore the Lord will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day. The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail. For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.”

We can bemoan sin but do nothing about it. This was the stance of Eli when confronted with the wickedness of his sons, Hophni and Phinehas.

1 Samuel 2:23-24: “And he said unto them, Why do ye such things? for I hear of your evil dealings by all this people. Nay, my sons; for it is no good report that I hear: ye make the Lord’s people to transgress.”

That was as far as Eli went, he took no action against them and he was punished.

1 Samuel 2:29-30, 34-35 says: “Wherefore kick ye at my sacrifice and at mine offering, which I have commanded in my habitation; and honourest thy sons above me, to make yourselves fat with the chiefest of all the offerings of Israel my people? Wherefore the Lord God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the Lord saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed. And this shall be a sign unto thee, that shall come upon thy two sons, on Hophni and Phinehas; in one day they shall die both of them. And I will raise me up a faithful priest, that shall do according to that which is in mine heart and in my mind: and I will build him a sure house; and he shall walk before mine anointed for ever.”

Let us not be afraid to take our stand in this day of apostasy, and let us openly challenge any who would seek to denigrate the cause of Christ, whether they come in grand clerical garb, carry the prefix ‘Rev’ to their name or claim to be acting for God when it is obvious they are doing no such thing.

Even as the words of verse 30 of 1 Samuel 2 tell us, “them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed”.

Rend Collective to perform at ‘Christian’ camp celebrating the Papist Mass

The leading ‘Christian’ rock band Rend Collective (pictured, above) are to take the stage at three allegedly Christian summer camps which will offer the Roman Catholic Mass to those in attendance.

Rend Collective will perform at the Soul Survivor summer camps to be held in Peterborough and Stafford in England in July and August.

In a ‘Leaders Handbook’ provided on the Soul Survivor website, it is stated that, on the final day of the camp, when a Communion service is held, “Catholic Mass is also available”.

Let us not forget what the “Catholic Mass” is.

The Catholic Church catechism says this: “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.””

So they claim the Mass is a sacrifice of Christ, despite the Bible saying the sacrifice at Calvary was once and for all.

Hebrews 10:11-12 says: “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;”

They also claim the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist, saying that the priest transforms magically the bread and wine to the actual body and blood of Christ.

Apart from the practical aspect of the implications of what it makes a person who eats the body and blood of another, there is also the resolution struck by the early church leaders about the consumption of blood in their correspondence with the Gentiles after disputes sprang up over the implications of the Jewish law for them.

Acts 15:28-29: “For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things; That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.”

Blood was never to be consumed, yet here is Rome teaching that its adherents drink the physical blood of Christ.

And this is what Soul Survivor is facilitating at its summer camps.

Soul Survivor is ran by a character who has previously featured on ‘Protestant Revival’, Mike Pilavachi (pictured, below).

We highlighted him at the time he performed, for that is what it was, at Causeway Coast Vineyard Church in Coleraine, County Londonderry.

His then-imminent arrival was greeted with enthusiasm by one of the key figures at Causeway Coast Vineyard, ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas, whose tweet celebrating his appearance is pictured below.

And this man who each year, since at least 2016, has facilitated the blasphemous practising of the Mass at the events he runs, is someone who ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas is holding up as a spiritual example to those who attend his church.

Rend Collective, meanwhile, are of course no strangers whatsoever to consorting with Popery.

Indeed, last August, when “that Antichrist”, the Pope, visited Dublin, they were part of the musical entertainment laid on for the Mary worshippers and Pope exalters in attendance, which you can read about by clicking here.

Then a short time later they told a transgender individual on Twitter that they considered it a “sad thing” that certain churches wouldn’t allow them to be a preacher or worship leader.

This transgender individual was challenging them on performing at an event held by Franklin Graham, son of ecumenical evangelist Billy Graham and, to his great credit, a strident opponent of sodomy.

Rend Collective’s response was this: “… in an attempt to foster unity we try not to be selective in who we partner with under the banner of the gospel.”

That lack of selectiveness has been demonstrated yet again for all to see.

Rend Collective have stedfastly refused to abide by the Scriptural command to remain separate from sin (2 Corinthians 6:14-17) and to reprove the unfruitful works of darkness (Ephesians 5:11), even when confronted with their betrayal of God’s Word by this page and others.

Questions also must be asked of the discernment of ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas in linking himself to a man who arranges for the central blasphemous act of Romanist worship to be held at the event he runs.

What does Peter Lynas think of the man he supported bringing in to give spiritual direction to the attendees at Causeway Coast Vineyard arranging for Christ to be sacrificed again at the events he hosts?

Does Peter Lynas think the Mass is an authentic, appropriate form of worship?

Will he be happy to welcome Mike Pilavachi back to Causeway Coast Vineyard in future?

What do churches who are members of the Evangelical Alliance, which Peter Lynas runs, think of his association with and support of men who arrange for the Roman Catholic Mass to be held?

There are serious questions, too, for Bangor Elim Church, in County Down, from which Rend Collective were born, as they will have the band back in May to perform at two concerts they are hosting on consecutive nights.

Is Bangor Elim happy for their most famous members to be engaging with events promoting Popery?

They could not but be aware that Rend Collective were part of the musical entertainment for the Pope’s visit to the Republic of Ireland last year, so one must conclude they are happy to be tainted by the blasphemies of the Roman Catholic Church.

What a wretched situation this is on so many levels.

Dear reader, please do not allow yourself to support the compromising ways of Rend Collective, separate yourself from the Evangelical Alliance and all churches within it, thus sending a message to ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas, Rend Collective, Bangor Elim, Mike Pilavachi, Soul Survivor and every member of the Evangelical Alliance that you will not be caught up in their rejection of God’s Word.

A stand ought to be taken and indeed a stand must be taken against these characters and their refusal to abide by God’s commands.

Spread the word, share this article widely, shout it out from the rooftops that this religious treachery will not be carried out in your name and, most crucially, it will not be carried out in the precious name of God the Father, God the Son or God the Holy Spirit.

Jeremiah 14:14: “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.”

Church of Ireland Bishop Ken Good promotes ‘unity’ in two Romanist cathedrals

The soon-to-retire Church of Ireland Bishop of Derry and Raphoe, Ken (No) Good (pictured, above), is helping finish off his career in God-defying fashion by addressing two Week of Prayer for Christian Unity services in as many days.

Further demonstrating how he will be unlamented by those who hold the Word of God dear, he was the preacher at St Peter’s Roman Catholic cathedral in Belfast on Tuesday, 22 January before going to St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Armagh, the chief hub of Romanist deceit in Northern Ireland, the following night to promote unity with Rome.

This is the very system which outright denies the truth of the Word of God.

They deny the doctrine of salvation by faith alone in Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:5-7) and they deny that Christ’s sacrifice was sufficient to save us (Hebrews 7:26-27; Hebrews 10:10-12), thus condemning any who follow their twisted theology to an eternity in hell.

Instead, Rome has constructed a perverted system of salvation by sacramental merit, including the creation of the fictional venue of purgatory, which in turn leads to the blasphemous offering of prayers for the dead, while venerating Mary as the ‘Queen of Heaven’ and ‘Mother of Salvation’, among scores of other outrageous titles ascribed to her.

Why any should want to have unity with such outright denial and perversion of Scripture is anyone’s guess.

The Bible clearly states this ought not to be the case.

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

How much reproving of the unfruitful works of darkness went on in St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Armagh on Wednesday, 23 January? It is highly likely there was none, else Rev Ken No Good would not have been invited.

After all, a report from the event on the Derry and Raphoe website said that Rev Ken No Good was “flanked by the Church of Ireland and Roman Catholic Primates, Most Reverend (Most Ecumenical, more like) Richard Clarke (Church of Ireland) and Eamon Martin (Roman Catholic)”.

We are also told “the service in Armagh included prayers said by members of the Methodist, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic and Church of Ireland churches”.

We have already highlighted how Rome offers prayers to and for the dead, so one wonders to whom were these prayers addressed? Regardless, to engage in a service and offer prayers alongside those who promote pagan corruptions of Christianity is odious to God.

Rev Ken No Good has a track record for Papist compromise, and back in July we highlighted his disgraceful eulogising of the Roman Catholic Bishop of Derry at a Church of Ireland youth event, which you can read about by clicking here.

Speaking of Donal McKeown (with whom he is pictured, above), the Papist bishop who last July excused the vicious sectarian actions of republicans in Northern Ireland’s second city, Londonderry, targeting relentlessly for a week a small Protestant area surrounded by republican strongholds, Rev Ken No Good said: “I think he has a remarkable way with people. His memory of names, his ability to just relate to people – and I saw this in Rome particularly – he’s a real people person and there’s a warmth about him, there’s a ‘down-to-earthness’ about him.

“I actually think he’s a very good bishop – I’m quite serious about that, it’s true – and he has that warm ability to get on and relate to his people.”

How cosy and lovely.

It is noteworthy that this Papal pandering took place at a Church of Ireland youth event, called Summer Madness, thus having the effect of causing the young people in the Church of Ireland to believe aligning with Rome is acceptable and even commendable.

This leads to a situation such as was outlined in Isaiah 9:14-17, which says: “Therefore the Lord will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day. The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail. For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed. Therefore the Lord shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one is an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.”

A significant number of the leaders of the Church of Ireland are directly causing the people to err, and those who may disagree but refuse to separate are implicated as well.

“The Lord shall have no joy in their young men,” the Scriptures say, so the likes of Rev Ken No Good and Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke are breeding up a new generation within the church, who need true Christian guidance as to how to live their lives and practice their faith in God but are being led badly astray, who God Himself calls “evildoers”.

What a reprehensible thing that is!

There is a very sad harvest currently being reaped and the seeds currently being sown of another rotten crop within so much of alleged Christendom in this land.

Dear reader, please don’t allow yourself or your children to be swallowed up in the lies and blasphemies of the ecumenical movement.

Don’t allow yourself or your children to be swallowed up in the miry pit being laid by the likes of Rev Ken No Good and Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke (pictured, below).

Separate yourself from those whom God has called evildoers and don’t allow yourself to be compromised by those who trample God’s inspired Word underfoot.

Let us live holy lives, dedicated unto the Lord and wholly given over to His service.

We see even in that ecumenical love-in at Armagh how the Church of Ireland, Methodist Church and Presbyterian Church are offering up prayers beside Mary worshippers, Pope exalters, prayers for the dead sayers and deniers of the all-sufficient sacrifice of Christ at Calvary.

Are you comfortable at being involved with that? Do you want you and your children dragged down by such spiritual treachery?

Separation from corrupt churches and separation in our lives from sin and a devotion to following God in a Biblical manner is the way to revival.

This roadmap to revival is outlined in His Word.

2 Chronicles 7:14 says: “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.”

Let us turn from the wicked ways of ecumenism and religious compromise and separate ourselves unto God, and then we will see the might of God demonstrated in our land again.

East Belfast Mission and Rev Andrew Irvine give themselves over to Rome

Jeremiah 6:13-16: “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. Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the Lord. Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.”

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is a reprehensible event, as it seeks to overthrow vital doctrinal differences in the name of soppy ‘unity’.

Never mind the fact that Rome denies the precious truth of salvation by faith alone in Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8-9), or that it blasphemously offers up Christ as a sacrifice at its Mass, or the blasphemous titles taken upon himself by the Pope, or Rome’s many other false teachings and claims.

So long as we stand together and pontificate about how lovely it would be to live together in peace and harmony, and without any of that frightful earnest contending for the faith, then won’t everything just be fine and dandy?

The attitude of the ecumenist is to ignore or shun doctrinal differences (although in many cases it could be because they don’t actually hold particularly strongly to any doctrines to differ from others on) for the sake of the utterly vital ‘unity’, even though it is nothing other than a shabby pretence.

To allow others to continue in error and refuse to try to correct them, out of a love for their never-dying soul, is seen as praiseworthy and noble.

And one such ever so worthy character who helped spread ecumenical deceit during that week long festival of mean compromise is Rev Andrew Irvine (pictured, top), Methodist minister and Chief Executive of the East Belfast Mission, itself ran by the Methodist Church.

A former big shot on Belfast City Council, Rev Andrew Irvine has been brought on board at the East Belfast Mission to help boost its income.

And on Wednesday, 23 January, Rev Andrew Irvine engaged in his mean ecumenical compromise by preaching at a Week of Prayer for Christian Unity service in a Romanist chapel in Lurgan in County Armagh.

Rev Andrew Irvine was the speaker in the service in St Paul’s Roman Catholic church in the town.

How exactly such compromise can be justified is frankly remarkable.

Did Rev Andrew Irvine tell those in attendance that the Romish lie of works based salvation will lead any who believe it to hell?

Did Rev Andrew Irvine tell them that Purgatory is nothing but a Romish creation, a fictitious venue used largely to extract more money from its deluded adherents?

Did Rev Andrew Irvine blast the disgraceful Papist lie of offering prayers to Mary and to long dead so-called ‘saints’?

What do you think?

Had Rev Andrew Irvine said any of those things he’d have been out on his ear so quickly it would have made his head spin.

Instead, he chooses to say soft things that will offend nobody and leave those in attendance with a warm, fuzzy feeling.

The theme of this year’s Week of Christian Unity was ‘Justice’.

Not God’s justice of course, the ecumenist and apostate doesn’t like God’s justice.

Rather it is about what is known as ‘social justice’, meaning it is very easy territory for anyone to cover and certainly would allow those in attendance to leave with that warm, fuzzy feeling so valued in churches which have rejected Christ.

After all, who could disagree that it would be nice if everybody was treated fairly?

Saying things that please people, rather than telling them they are on their way to a lost eternity in hell if they don’t repent of their sins, is symptomatic of the false prophets the whole way down through history.

This was very prevalent in the days of Jeremiah and Ezekiel.

Jeremiah was outright contradicted in his prophesies of destruction for Jerusalem by Hananiah, who prophesied from the imagination of his own heart rather than according to God’s Word.

Jeremiah 28:1-4 says: “And it came to pass the same year, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the fourth year, and in the fifth month, that Hananiah the son of Azur the prophet, which was of Gibeon, spake unto me in the house of the Lord, in the presence of the priests and of all the people, saying, Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, saying, I have broken the yoke of the king of Babylon. Within two full years will I bring again into this place all the vessels of the Lord’s house, that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took away from this place, and carried them to Babylon: And I will bring again to this place Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, with all the captives of Judah, that went into Babylon, saith the Lord: for I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon.”

That certainly was a people-pleasing message from Hananiah.

Jeremiah responded in verse 9, saying: “…when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known, that the LORD hath truly sent him.”

What Jeremiah was saying was that time would prove who was telling the truth.

How did events transpire? Jeremiah 39 has the answer.

Jeremiah 39:1-9 says: “In the ninth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the tenth month, came Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon and all his army against Jerusalem, and they besieged it. And in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month, the ninth day of the month, the city was broken up. And all the princes of the king of Babylon came in, and sat in the middle gate, even Nergal-sharezer, Samgar-nebo, Sarsechim, Rab-saris, Nergal-sharezer, Rab-mag, with all the residue of the princes of the king of Babylon. And it came to pass, that when Zedekiah the king of Judah saw them, and all the men of war, then they fled, and went forth out of the city by night, by the way of the king’s garden, by the gate betwixt the two walls: and he went out the way of the plain. But the Chaldeans’ army pursued after them, and overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho: and when they had taken him, they brought him up to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon to Riblah in the land of Hamath, where he gave judgment upon him. Then the king of Babylon slew the sons of Zedekiah in Riblah before his eyes: also the king of Babylon slew all the nobles of Judah. Moreover he put out Zedekiah’s eyes, and bound him with chains, to carry him to Babylon. And the Chaldeans burned the king’s house, and the houses of the people, with fire, and brake down the walls of Jerusalem. Then Nebuzar-adan the captain of the guard carried away captive into Babylon the remnant of the people that remained in the city, and those that fell away, that fell to him, with the rest of the people that remained.”

Jeremiah had urged King Zedekiah to negotiate a truce with Babylon, Hananiah the false prophet claimed God had told him that the Lord would “break the yoke of the king of Babylon”.

Which message was more popular? Hananiah’s. Which message was of God? Jeremiah’s.

And so it is even to this day, the Word of God continues to be unpopular with the world at large, and Rev Andrew Irvine is following in the footsteps of Hananiah.

He is, in the words given to the prophet Isaiah by God, saying the “smooth things”.

Isaiah 30:9-10: “That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord: Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:”

Ecumenical events are nothing other than deceits and we ought to stay well clear of any such event.

Likewise, any supposedly Protestant minister engaging in such is guilty of taking part in the deception.

It is unsurprising to see Rev Andrew Irvine taking this approach when you consider who is his boss, as it were, in the East Belfast Mission, Rev Brian Anderson (pictured, below), the President of the Irish Council of Churches.

On the East Belfast Mission’s own website, the Irish Council of Churches is called the “main ecumenical body in Ireland”, showing very clearly how the East Belfast Mission is avowedly tied up with Rome.

Let us be determined to oppose all form of ecumenical meetings and be unafraid to stand up against any who are eager to betray their Protestant heritage by mingling with the errors of Rome.

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