THE WAR OF THE FLESH »

The root of what we see all around us today as the world spins further out into decadence, and professing Christendom seems bent to follow it, is found in the Book of Romans: 5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the […]

CITIZENS OF HEAVEN ON EARTH »

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. (Philippians 3:20) What is meant by our being citizens in heaven? Why, first that we are under heaven’s government. Christ the King of heaven reigns in our hearts; the laws of glory are the laws of our consciences. Our daily […]

THE SPIRIT CRIES OUT »

And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. (Galatians 4:6) Paul could have said, “God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who says, ‘Abba, Father.’ ” But he purposely says “calls out,” to indicate the Christian who is still […]

SEPARATION FROM THIS UNGODLY WORLD »

Apprising Ministries has been a leading online apologetics and discernment ministry covering the spreading of apostasy throughout mainstream evangelicalism. Much of this has come about because of its embrace of the Emerging Church, which has a neo-liberal cult operating within it often referred to as the Emergent Church. By now you may know that this EC has developed […]

OUR SIGNIFICANCE TO GOD »

3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; 4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?  (Psalm 8:3-4) Lift up your eyes now to the heavens, and count the stars. Listen to the astronomer as he […]

IT SHALL BE DONE »

I have kept thy precepts and thy testimonies: for all my ways are before thee. (Psalm 119:168) O that every Christian were altogether and evermore obedient to heavenly rule. As the planet revolves undeviatingly in its orbit, because with the law imposed upon it there has come forth a constraining and impelling force, so may we […]

A GIFT FOR CHRIST JESUS THIS CHRISTMAS »

Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.” (John 14:23) Sounding The Clarion Call To Biblically-Based Prayer As far back as 2009, in Apprising Ministries articles like Christian Soldiers Standing Up For Jesus?, I’ve been trying to bring […]

LIVING IN HOPE »

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. (Romans 15:13) The only reason we are living on earth is to help other people. Otherwise, it would be best if God choked us and let us die as […]

COUNT ON IT »

Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. (Ephesians 6:16) Faith is  a shield that you may use for warding off every kind of arrow, yea, even the fiery darts of the enemy. For this shield cannot be penetrated even by javelins of […]

GOD-CONSCIOUSNESS »

As I begin this I’d like to say a quick thank you for your continued patience and support. We also have no doubt that your faithful prayer is being answered by God and having its intended effect. Unfortunately, circa 2004 much of mainstream evangelicalism would opt for an ill-fated embrace of the Church Growth Movement […]
