When Average Men Follow Christ
By Francis Frangipane
Before we doubt whether we are the caliber of the first disciples, here is a fact sheet compiled from over 200 New Testament Scriptures concerning those whom Jesus first called.
The disciples... came to Christ, believed in Him, followed Him.
They...
dined with Him, often became hungry, often didn't have time to eat, twice fed the multitudes.
They...
received special authority to heal and deliver, became Jesus' confidants, were often rebuked and corrected, were entrusted with...

A Thankful Heart

Posted Nov 28th, 12:00 by Francis Frangipane Ministries on Christian Living


A Thankful Heart
A Thankful Man is a Humble Man
If you think you know God but do not live your life in gratitude before Him, it is doubtful that you really knew Him in the first place. A thankful heart honors God. Too often when people say they "know God," what we actually mean is they know facts about God. But we should ask ourselves, "Do I truly know Him?"
Paul warns that just knowing facts about God is not enough...

The Men of Ninevah

Posted Nov 22nd, 12:00 by Francis Frangipane Ministries on Christian Living


The Men of Ninevah
There are many types of fasts. If you have ever gone on an extended fast, you know it can be a life-changing experience. The sinful king of Nineveh along with the nobles and all the people of his nation fasted completely from food and water. The Lord heard the sincerity in their repentance and spared their nation, making them an example of how prayer, coupled with fasting, touched the heart of God (Jonah 3; Luke 11:32).
A fast...

The Day of God's Kingdom

Posted Nov 15th, 12:00 by Francis Frangipane Ministries on Christian Living


The Day of God's Kingdom
As we approach the fulfillment of many end-time prophecies, we must not allow ourselves to be moved by fear or unbelief. Increased wars, lawlessness and ethnic conflicts are signs that point to something more significant than themselves. Recall, the Lord’s word, He said, "So you also, when you see these things happening, recognize that the kingdom of God is near" (Luke 21:31).
Indeed, the turbulence we behold in the sea of humanity is caused by a storm...

America's Future: Christ or Chaos

Posted Nov 8th, 12:00 by Francis Frangipane Ministries on Christian Living


America's Future: Christ or Chaos
There is a chosen race. However, this race is not born of ethnicity or fleshly pride; its origin is heavenly. It is spiritual and its citizens come from every "tribe and tongue and people and nation" (Rev. 5:9). Individuals who have been purchased by the Lamb of God and are now united by His blood. Their homeland is Heaven, and in their love for each other, they display Christ as God's answer for ethnic strife...

Casting Down the Accuser of the Brethren

Casting Down the Accuser
of the Brethren
"Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, who accuses them before our God day and night" (Rev. 12:10).
There will be an actual point in time when the salvation, power and kingdom of God, as well as the authority of Christ, is manifested in the earth. While we wait patiently for the...

"For Dreams to Come True"

Posted Oct 25th, 12:00 by Francis Frangipane Ministries on Christian Living


"For Dreams to Come True"
(En Español)
In a dream I saw a temple standing in an open field. My view of the temple was from its side, about two hundred yards away. I could not see its front, yet it must have been completely open because great light flashed out from the inside. It pulsed like lightning yet was solid like sunlight. I knew this light was the glory of God.
The temple was so close that I knew with just...

The Real Jesus

The Real Jesus
A Storm, a Ghost or Jesus?
Get used to the idea that Jesus is seeking to perfect your faith (Heb. 12:2). Sooner or later, the real Jesus will require you to look straight in the eye of the impossible and believe God for His power.
Consider when the Lord sent His disciples to cross the Sea of Galilee. Later that night, Jesus comes to them walking on water (see Matt. 14:22-33). Contrary winds are causing the sea to churn...

The Power in Holiness

Posted Oct 11th, 12:00 by Francis Frangipane Ministries on Christian Living


The Power in Holiness
"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall have a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof" (2 Tim. 3:1-5 KJV).
Holiness is powerful. Have you ever met a truly holy man or woman? There is a power in their godliness. If, however, one has never known a Christlike soul, it becomes relatively easy to fake Christianity. The fact is that being false is natural to the human heart....

The Goal Is to See Clearly

The Goal Is to See Clearly
The judgmental, carnal mind sees the image of itself in others. Without realizing it is seeing itself, it assumes it is perceiving others. Jesus refers to the person who judges others as a "hypocrite." However, the Lord is not saying we should totally stop thinking about people all together. He wants us to be able to help one another. The emphasis in Jesus’ command to "judge not" is summarized in His concluding remark: "First take...

The Silent Harvest

The Silent Harvest
In a dream I found myself inside the mind of a dying man. The man had been in a coma for some time; his family had been praying, but they did not know whether or not he had accepted Christ. All they were sure of is that, throughout his life, he had resisted their efforts to lead him to Christ.
As I dreamt I became so acutely aware of the man's state of mind that his thoughts,...

Truth Is a Person
(En Español)
As we have often stated, our destiny is, first of all, to attain the likeness of Christ. We will fall short along the way; we will have much to learn, relearn and unlearn; we will face many obstacles, but our life vision must not deviate from this goal.
Along the way, there will also be false teachers and ministers. How can we discern the true from the false? In answer to this important question, the Bible itself...

Urgent Prayer Request

September 18, 2019
Dear Friends,
As many of you know, Gabriela, our ICIT Spanish Administrator, was diagnosed with cancer two years ago. She has had several surgeries since diagnosed and she continues to battle. Several new nodules have been discovered and we want to stand in the gap for her complete recovery. This has been a very stressful season for Gabriela and her family.
She needs direction and wisdom for making the right decisions as she goes forward.
In summary, if...
