When Becoming Nothing is an Improvement

Posted Jan 10th, 12:00 by Francis Frangipane Ministries on Christian Living


When Becoming Nothing is an Improvement
In the beginning, the earth was formless and void, but that did not deter the Almighty. He looked into the fathomless depth of its darkness and concluded, "All it needs is light!" Likewise, in the beginning of our spiritual lives, we also are "formless and void" and God, just as confidently, is still saying, "All they need is a little light!" Remember: it's the Lord's responsibility to create and our responsibility to submit to His...

Urgent Prayer

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


January 3, 2020
Dear Friends,
There has been an increase of bloodshed and warfare in Iraq. Iranian-backed militia attacks at the U.S. Embassy have led to airstrikes by the US, killing an Iranian commander.
We need to pray that this warfare doesn't escalate completely out of control.
Thank you

To This One Will I Look

To This One Will I Look
Transcendent, Liberating Humility
Of all virtues, Jesus elevated meekness above the others. Why? Humility is the door opener to grace: no virtue enters our lives except that humility bids it come. Without humility, we have no sense or attachment to our personal need; we see no reason to change or appropriate future grace.
Yet, humility is not only host to the other virtues, it is also the life essence that sustains them. It is humility that...

Standing Behind Our Wall

Standing Behind Our Wall
The sense of distance we often feel between Christ and ourselves is an illusion. As we enter the days prior to Christ's Second Coming, the Lord shall begin to remove that falsehood. Indeed, He promises, "In that day you shall know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you" (John 14:20).
The Scriptures tell us that Christ is the vine, we are the branches; He is the head, we are His...

Angry, Angry, Angry

Angry, Angry, Angry
It's hard to remember a time when people were more angry. A civilized person ought to be, first of all, civil. Yet today there is no discourse, no respect for another's opinion, no reasoning together for the common good. I am concerned, especially for the church.
One may argue, "Our society is decaying. We should be mad." Yes, but we can be angry yet still not sin (Eph. 4:26). Of course, I feel anger that the underpinnings...

Even Sodom!

Even Sodom!
(En Español)
"He then began to denounce the cities in which most of His miracles were done, because they did not repent" (Matt. 11:20).
Jesus has a word to say, not only to us as individuals, but to entire cities as well. In anger He rebuked Chorazin, Bethsaida and Capernaum (Matt. 11:21, 23). With tears He wept over Jerusalem (Luke 13:34). If He expected cities to repent in the first century, He expects cities today to repent as well.

When Average Men Follow Christ

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 2019, 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

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).

The Day of God's Kingdom

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...
