A Place for Him to Rest, Part 3

A Place for Him to Rest, Part 3
Cease Striving, Know, Then Obey
To enter God's rest requires we abide in full surrender to His will, in perfect trust of His power. We learn to rest from our works "as God did from His" (Heb. 4:10). To "rest from our labors" does not mean we have stopped working; it means we have stopped the laborious work of the flesh and sin. It means we have entered the eternal works that He brings...

A Place for Him to Rest, Part 2
Enveloped and Permeated with God
The Hebrew word for rest is nuach; among other things, it means "to rest, remain, be quiet." It also indicates a "complete envelopment and thus permeation," as in the spirit of Elijah "resting" on Elisha, or when wisdom "rests in the heart of him who has understanding." God is not looking for a place where He can merely cease from His labors with men. He seeks a relationship where...

A Place for Him to Rest, Part 1
In the kingdom, there are no great men of God, just humble men whom God has chosen to use greatly. How do we know when we are humble? When God speaks, we tremble. God is looking for a man who trembles at His words. Such a man will find the Spirit of God resting upon him; he will become a dwelling place for the Almighty.
Entering the Sabbath Rest of God

The Intensifying Presence

The Intensifying Presence
We all know the unrepentant world is destined for the Great Tribulation, but as far as the living, praying church is concerned, if we continue to climb toward the standard of Christlikeness, prior to the rapture there will be a season of great glory for true Christians.
In support of this holy goal, let me submit to you an encounter I had with the Lord in 1973. I was pastoring a small church in Hawaii and had been...

Registration Extended for the April Level I Class
As we all go through this Covind-19 pandemic, God has not changed His plans. The Lord's ultimate purpose remains the same: the redemption of man and the replication of man into the image of Christ.
● "My little children, with whom I am again in labor until Christ is formed in you" (Gal. 4:19). This is the goal of God in the church, that Christ be formed - that He be functionally manifest in...

Justice’ Testimony
This was written by my son Justice after he broke his neck two years ago. I felt it was important to share with all of you who are similarly facing uncertainty and fear.

The Shelter of Glory

Posted Mar 13th, 12:00 by Francis Frangipane Ministries on Christian Living


 
The Shelter of Glory
What we define doctrinally as "salvation" is, in truth, the entrance, and then expansion, of Christ's Presence throughout our person. What we call salvation is, in truth, the beginning of God's glory in man.
If you are a Christian, then Christ is in you; you are already in glory. You have been clothed with Christ, who is Himself the "radiance of [the Father's] glory" (Heb 1:3). The fact is, Satan knows you are a Christian, not simply...

Difficult Times We Live In
We know these are difficult times, yet as followers of Christ we were born for times like these! When darkness covers the earth, that's our cue to rise and shine (Isa. 60)!
For those of you that are praying about taking In Christ's Image Training, let me personally encourage you to not be timid. Go ahead and step out in faith. God is reaching to your family and friends. This is an important time, and your...

The Bright Lamp of Holiness, Part 2

The Bright Lamp of Holiness, Part 2
Holiness is a Body Full of Light
You cannot serve two masters. You cannot serve light and darkness, sin and righteousness, self and God. Light is within you, but so also is darkness. Our world is a world in darkness. Our ancestors were sons of darkness. Our carnal minds yet remain theaters of darkness. In a world of choices, we must choose light. That is why Jesus taught that we must be single-minded if...

The Bright Lamp of Holiness

The Bright Lamp of Holiness
From the moment Christ enters within us, we are holy, set apart unto God. This kind of holiness is the same sanctification that made the utensils in the temple holy: holy because they were used in service to the Lord. They had no virtue in themselves; their material substance did not change. Christianity, in general, is holy in that sense. But the holiness we are seeking is the fulfillment of having been set apart. We are...

Satan's Domain: The Realm of Darkness Part 2

Satan's Domain:
The Realm of Darkness, Part 2
Submit to God
The trap Satan used to cause Peter's fall was the disciple's own sin of pride.
Let us recognize before we do warfare that the areas we hide in darkness are the very areas of our future defeat.
Often the battles we face will not cease until we discover and repent for the darkness we've allowed within us. If we will be effective in spiritual warfare, we must be discerning of our...

Satan's Domain: The Realm of Darkness

Satan's Domain:
The Realm of Darkness
Many Christians debate whether the devil is on the earth or in hell; can he dwell in Christians or only in the world? The fact is, the devil is in darkness. Wherever there is spiritual darkness, there the devil will be.
Preparing for Spiritual Warfare
For most, the term spiritual warfare introduces a new but not necessarily welcomed dimension in their Christian experience. The thought of facing evil spirits in battle is an unsettling concept, especially since we...

The Three Battlegrounds

The Three Battlegrounds
Introduction
I wrote The Three Battlegrounds to provide clear and balanced insight into the nature of spiritual warfare. Before we proceed, however, I have two concerns. The first is our need for wisdom. There is an old European proverb worth heeding. It reads: "Age and treachery will always defeat youth and zeal." Before we engage in spiritual warfare, we should know this about Satan: he is an ancient and extremely treacherous foe. On the other hand, the strength of...

Mercy Not Wrath

Posted Jan 31st, 12:00 by Francis Frangipane Ministries on Christian Living


Mercy Not Wrath
The church was created not to fulfill God's wrath, but to complete His mercy.
Remember, we are called to be a "house of prayer for all…nations." Consider passionately this phrase: "prayer for." Jesus taught His disciples to "pray for" those who would persecute or mistreat them (Matt.5 44). When Job "prayed for" his friends, God fully restored him (Job 42:10). We are to "pray for the peace of Jerusalem" (Ps. 122:6), and "pray for" each other so that...
