Harry Bell was much in demand in Northern Ireland in the early 1960's as there had developed a marked tendency towards enthusiasm for novel (that is amongst assemblies of "Brethren") eschatological views, chief among which were "Tribulationism" (i.e. the Church must pass through the Tribulation) and Amillennialism. The chief promoter of the latter being (former Rev.) T.W. Ball, who had become a noted evangelist amongst assemblies having left the Reformed Presbyterians (Covenanters). Many local N.I. preachers and teachers felt out-gunned by Ball, and Harry Bell's help was eagerly sought. Wm Bunting around this time in the Assembly Testimony Magazine launched a series of aritcles rebutting Tribulationism and Amillennialism.
