GOOD WORKS ACTUALLY EXTEND FROM GOD »

I know, O Lord, that the way of man is not in himself, that it is not in man who walks to direct his steps. (Jeremiah 10:23) False Converts Teaching False Doctrine Are Leading Professing Evangelical Christians Astray Labors in the Lord like this one here at Apprising Ministries would never have been necessary had the mainstream evangelical […]

CHRIST OUR LIFE—SOON TO APPEAR »

Before we get to the below sermon excerpt from Charles Spurgeon here at Apprising Ministries we wish to extend our gratitude for you keeping us in your prayers. I did see the neurologist yesterday. The tests are definitely not pleasant ones to go through. Long story short, the doctor found that I don’t have MS. […]

GOD’S LAW AND THE GRACE OF CHRIST »

Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you, (2 Corinthians 6:7) The Law And The Cross Reveal Sin And Lead To God’s Grace I begin by reminding you that one of the blessings of having to go through such a time of testing as […]

A GOD OF FLESH »

His delight is not in the strength of the horse, nor his pleasure in the legs of a man, but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his steadfast love.  (Psalm 147:10-11) It is a good thing to be learned and wise, and the more you can cultivate your minds, the better, but remember the […]

HUMAN NATURE WON’T SUBMIT TO CHRIST »

Pilate also wrote an inscription and put it on the cross. It read, “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.” (John 19:19) Thirdly, I see here that man’s chief objection to Christ is His authority, for the pith of that inscription was, “Jesus the King.” Pilate did not write, “This is Jesus the Teacher,” or […]

And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All power is given to me in heaven and in earth; go, therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:18) While I was meditating in private upon this text I felt myself […]

PARTNERSHIP WITH CHRIST »

God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. ( 1 Corinthians 1:9) PAUL is here arguing for the safety, the perseverance and the ultimate perfection of the saints to whom he is writing. He thanks God for what He has done for them and is assured […]

“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me” (John 14:1) Christ is saying here: “You have heard that you should trust in God.

LIVE FOR LIFE EVERLASTING »

“All things are lawful,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful,” but not all things build up. Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor. (1 Corinthians 10:23-24) I would that all men at this hour abounded in almsgiving, but specially those who are followers of the loving Jesus.

THE WORLD WON’T BELIEVE; BUT YOU CAN BE FORGIVEN »

Here at Apprising Ministries you’ve often heard me talk about the spiritually bankrupt Church Growth Movement (CGM).1 Even more specifically about the Purpose Driven/Seeker Drivenism of e.g. Rick Warren and the neo-liberal cult of the Emergent Church aka the Emerging Church a la spiritual guru Rob Bell.
