The Death of a Dream

Posted Jun 16th, 12:00 by Francis Frangipane Ministries on Christian Living


The Death of a Dream
It's amazing how many twists and turns we travel in life searching for personal significance. We can accept occasional anonymity when giving to charity or in playing a behind-the-scenes role, but we do not want our entire lives to be anonymous. The idea that life, or precisely my life, never achieved anything of significance - that one's dreams, it turns out, were mostly unattainable illusions - is the closest thing to death we can experience while...

Pardon for an Unrepentant People

Pardon for an Unrepentant People
According to Your Word
Moses sent twelve spies to Canaan to bring back a report of the land. When they returned, ten said that, though the land was good, Israel would surely be defeated by the inhabitants. Although Joshua and Caleb argued that Israel certainly could drive out their enemies, the people moaned, complained, and rebelled, even seeking to stone Joshua and Caleb and return with new leaders to Egypt. And again, the anger of the Lord...

God's Response to Redemptive Intercession
When Abraham was confronted with the possibility of Sodom's destruction, he did not immediately jump on the "Destroy Sodom" bandwagon; instead, he went before the Lord and prayed for mercy for the city. Abraham's prayer is an amazing study on the effect a mercy-motivated intercessor has on the heart of God. Indeed, my objective here is to gaze into the heart of God as it is revealed in the discourse between the Lord and...

A Call to Christlikeness

Posted Jun 3rd, 12:00 by Francis Frangipane Ministries on Christian Living


A Call to Christlikeness
The call of God is a call to Christlikeness. Indeed, to identify oneself as a follower of Jesus, yet not be passionate about attaining Christlikeness is to accept a form of deception (Philippians 3:17-19; 2 Corinthians 11:3).
In Christ's Image Training, Level I, offers four fundamental training modules that are designed to assist in attaining Christlikeness, humility, prayer and unity. Each track lasts six weeks and consists of two weekly lessons, which will be emailed directly to the...

At the Threshold of Glory

At the Threshold of Glory
(En Español)
Before Jesus comes to be glorified in the Earth, He is coming to be glorified in the church.
Our salvation grants us more than just church membership and a conservative perspective. We have, in truth, become one with Christ. The Lord Jesus is our head; we are His body. He is our husband; we are His bride. He is the true vine from which we, His branches, draw our life and virtue. These images, and many...

Pastor Francis has said, "Let us not be so absorbed with the dark movement of end-time shadows that we miss the One whose day is simultaneously dawning upon us. Many have written about the shadows; my goal is to prepare us for the baptism of light."

The Revelation - resend

The Revelation
The God of Glory
Nearly every Christian I know believes we are in the closing hours of this age. How close to the end, no one knows; and when Jesus will return, none presume a guess. If our hope has truly come from Heaven, then the praying, hungering church of Jesus Christ is about to enter a season of extraordinary manifestations of God's glory. We are about to engage in what Bible scholars call a dispensational move of God's Spirit....

The King's Friend

Posted May 18th, 12:00 by Francis Frangipane Ministries on Christian Living


The King's Friend
Over the last few years, I’ve watched a certain spiritual decline attach itself to many. My concern is this: we talk and sound no different than the world. Too often our words are mean, without grace or love. It is as though we have no revelation of the power of our words.
Jesus taught that we will be judged for every idle, unchristlike word that we speak. (see Matt 12:36). Words possess a unique power to affect reality....

A Covenant of Release

A Covenant of Release
Israel was hopelessly outnumbered. Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon "and all his army, with all the kingdoms of the earth that were under his dominion and all the peoples, were fighting against Jerusalem" and its remaining cities (Jer. 34:1). Because of Israel’s sin, apparently even the Lord, Israel’s protector, had withdrawn. For nearly forty years, Jeremiah the prophet pleaded with God’s people to repent, but they would not have it. Israel was nearly apostate, and the dire warnings...

When the Lord Builds His House

Posted May 3rd, 12:00 by Francis Frangipane Ministries on Christian Living


When the Lord Builds His House
It is possible for Christ's church to be so properly aligned with heaven that the Spirit of the Lord actually displaces the powers of darkness over our cities. To the degree that the church is so joined to God, the Lord's Presence guards the city: crime and immorality proportionally decline; revival begins to spontaneously break out. But be forewarned, only if the Lord builds His house will He then guard our cities (Psalm 127:1).
The Corporate,...

Measure Those Who Worship

Measure Those Who Worship
"Then there was given me a measuring rod like a staff; and someone said, ‘Get up and measure the temple of God and the altar, and those who worship in it. Leave out the court which is outside the temple and do not measure it, for it has been given to the nations'" (Rev. 11:1-2).
For whatever else this verse ultimately means, it tells us that the Spirit of God is measuring worshipers. He is looking for those...

Christ Our Passover Lamb

Posted Apr 19th, 12:00 by Francis Frangipane Ministries on Christian Living


Christ Our Passover Lamb
While we can forgive and cover non-Christian traditions in love, we should not let these traditions obscure the profound truth of God's Word. The early church had great reasons they celebrated the Feast of Passover. This annual tradition was not only commemorative -- it was also prophetic in nature. And while we would expect that the Jewish disciples would celebrate Passover, so also did the Gentile believers. We see this clearly in Paul's letter to the Corinthians....
