BELIEVE IN GOD »

“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. But I want to show you how to really find him so you won’t start worshipping something you made up in your head.If you want to trust in the true […]

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. This is because these two major camps of enemy […]

FOR THE TROUBLED »

Your wrath lies hard upon me, and You have afflicted me with all Your waves. (Psalm 88:7) I have often marveled at the strange comfort persons offer you when they say, “Ah, there are others who suffer more than you do.” Am I a demon, then? Am I expected to rejoice at the news of other […]

THE UNREGENERATE KNOW NOTHING OF THIS STRUGGLE »

Here at Apprising Ministries you’ve heard me warn you on a regular basis about the despicable Church Growth Movement (CGM),1 which slithered out of the spiritual black hole known as Fuller Theological Seminary (FTS). Briefly, we trace the origins of the CGM back to Donald McGavran who in 1965:  was asked by Fuller Theological Seminary […]

GOD’S TENDER MERCY »

There is a wounded soldier bleeding out his life upon the battlefield and here comes a friend, merciful and tender, who has brought him a refreshing draught which will help to bring him back to consciousness and open his half-glazed eyes again. He is covered with a clammy sweat, but there is cold water with […]

CELESTIAL LOVE »

The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee. (Jeremiah 31:3) Between that heart in heaven and this poor throbbing heart, aching heart on earth there is love established; love of the dearest, truest, sweetest and most faithful kind. In fact, the […]

ALMOST SAVED, BUT NOT QUITE »

Here at Apprising Ministries you’ve heard me talk about the devastating effects of the ill-fated Church Growth Movement1 vomited out of the theological cesspool we know as Fuller Theological Seminary. Sadly, rather than reject major proponents of it like Rick Warren and Bill Hybels, mainstream evangelicalism would embrace them. This is precisely how the Purpose Driven/Seeker Driven […]

GREAT ANSWERS FROM A GREAT GOD »

And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck, and kissed him: and they wept.  (Genesis 33:4) Jacob’s anguished prayer accomplished more than he dared to ask. He hadn’t expected so much comfort from God from his brother. All he had asked for was that his brother would leave him and […]

A FEW SIGHS FROM HELL »

And if thou beest a Christian (to whom this may come) that hast not only had a prize in thy hands, but wisdom given thee from above to make use of it, and art one who (whilst others are seeking to make this world and hell together sure to themselves) spendest thy time, and makest […]
