“One of the most concerning phenomena I’ve seen in terms of false movements is the manifestation of spirits – familiar spirits – masquerading as the Holy Spirit,” says Amy of Berean Research. “I’ve been reporting about and warning of the … Continue reading

Bickle and IHOP have recently been praised by Francis Chan, serving as an introduction for them into mainstream evangelicalism. Apprising Ministries now brings you this well-researched expose by Bob DeWaay concerning the NAR false prophet-apostle and his IHOP “ministry.”
The credibility of Dr. Brown appears to be fast eroding as his teachings and associations continue coming to light. Apprising Ministries has more detail.

In this new post Apprising Ministries walks you through a couple of key questions concerning Chan’s unfortunate endorsement of this NAR apostle/prophet.
Apprising Ministries provides you the video evidence of Chan’s public profession while speaking at IHOP this week. Chan also said he believes “there’s a lot of great things” going on at IHOP.

“O’Brien’s “prophetic declaration” here that allowing women to preach is a move of the Holy Spirit is grossly disingenuous and outright blasphemous.” (Reformation Charlotte) You may remember a few months ago as we reported on the saga of the supposed … Continue reading
“We should praise God that many seeds were sown and that some, however few will grow and bear fruit. That’s how the gospel works. Yet despite what we can reasonably anticipate to be a low retention rate, we should still … Continue reading
“With the aberrant movements and leadership involved in this movement, is it any wonder why conservative Christians are so skeptical of this “revival”? Why should we believe that true revival is happening within a movement that has exchanged the gospel … Continue reading

(Reformation Charlotte) John MacArthur has often compared charismatic worship to the Kundalini Spirit which is a form of demon possession associated with the practices of Hinduism. As one of the most outspoken critics against the charismatic movement, John MacArthur ascribes … Continue reading
“Chan is currently involved in an all-out assault on the Word of God and sound doctrine. It would be nice to think the best of him by believing that he doesn’t actually know what he’s doing–but, considering his solid theological … Continue reading
