What Are You Becoming?

What Are You Becoming?
(En Español)
It is insightful to me that when Luke listed the twelve apostles, when he came to Judas Iscariot, he identified him as the apostle "who became a traitor" (Luke 6:16).
Let me start with a question, a sincere question that may be the most important question you can ask yourself: What are you becoming? Judas Iscariot was an apostle "who became a traitor." This was a man who had been used mightily by the Lord to...

Becoming a Fragrance of Christ to God

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


Becoming a Fragrance of Christ to God
Jesus warned about our days, saying, "Because lawlessness is increased, most people's love will grow cold" (Matt. 24:10). The Lord’s warning was not just about conditions in the world; He is speaking to His disciples. He warned about conditions in the church.
Today, the church is overstocked with Christians whose love has grown cold. As a result, rancor and bitterness fills our conversations, too many of us have become people who are mad the...

When the Crop Permits

When the Crop Permits
From the ICIT Christlikeness track
(En Español)
Certainly, the period prior to Christ's return will be both difficult and perilous. Scripture warns that God's voice will shake all things, things in the heavens and things on the earth. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken, and then removed (Heb. 12:26-27).
Yet there is more on the calendar of God than increasing judgments and the Rapture. Between now and the Second Coming, there will also be a significant, though...

The Lord of Armies, Part 2

The Lord of Armies, Part 2
(En Español)
We have been discussing the nature of Christ. From our study, we learned that the "compound name" used most frequently in the Bible is "Lord of Hosts." This name appears nearly ten times the sum of all the other compound names in the Scriptures (see last week's msg).
Hosts, by the way, are not people who invite you to a party; hosts are armies. The Lord is Lord of armies, units that come against...

The Lord of Armies, Part 1

Our nation has been under spiritual and physical attack. God has called His Church to step up, grow up, take up the sword of the Spirit and fight for the future. Beloved, we can see our nation turned away from sin and aggressively turned toward Heaven. Do not Doubt!
It is no secret that today America is the most influential nation in the world. Yet consider how God could use our land if Hollywood...

Rule in the Midst of Your Enemies! Part 3

Rule in the Midst of Your Enemies!
Part 3
(En Español)
Rest Before Rule
In the 23rd Psalm, David declared, "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me" (v. 4). There is a place of walking with God where you simply "fear no evil." During his lifetime David faced many enemies, including a lion, a bear, a giant, an insane king and his very own son. In this psalm he...

Peacemakers Are Sons of God
Peace is Spirit power. Peace is an attribute of the Holy Spirit, and when you are walking in peace, you are walking in power. A peacemaker is not merely someone who protests against war; he is one who is inwardly so yielded to Christ in spirit and purpose that he can be called a son of God (Matt. 5:9). Where he goes, God goes and where God...

Rule in the Midst of Your Enemies!
(En Español)
True peace is the fruit of being confident in God’s love; it is born of the revelation that, regardless of the battle, "Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world" (1 John 4:4). You are not self-assured, you are God-assured.
The God of Peace Will Crush Satan
To wage effective spiritual warfare, we must understand and use spiritual authority. Spiritual authority, however, is not forcing your will upon another...

Elijah, Jehu and the War Against Jezebel

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


 
Elijah, Jehu and the War
Against Jezebel
There is a war, a very ancient war, between the spirit of Elijah and the spirit of Jezebel. In this age-old battle, Elijah represents the interests of Heaven: the call to repentance and the return to God. Jezebel, on the other hand, represents that unique principality whose purpose is to hinder the deep work of God in the church.
To the Victor Goes the Nation
To understand the conflict between the Elijah spirit and the spirit...

Satan's Domain: The Realm of Darkness

Satan's Domain:
The Realm of Darkness
(En Español)
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...

Living in a War Zone

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


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...

When Trust Is Established

Wounded in Pursuit of Oneness
The Bible says, "Pursue peace with all men" (Heb. 12:14). Pursue means we aggressively take the initiative to mak things right. It means we act on behalf of Heaven rather than allow another’s anger to serve the purpose of hell.
However, we must be realistic. When we reach out to a deeply offended person, they will likely be repulsed by our first efforts. Scripture tells us, "A brother offended is harder to...

Prayer Changed the Mind of God

Prayer Changed the Mind of God
The visible glory of God descended, then manifested on the top of Mt. Sinai. As many as six million Israelites heard the audible voice of God speaking to them from the majestic fire. The entire nation quaked and trembled in holy fear. In response, Israel's leaders begged Moses that no further words be spoken to them by God. Moses agreed, then turned and ascended the mountaintop and entered this frightening holy blaze where He remained...

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...
