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

Posted Oct 4th, 12:00 by Francis Frangipane Ministries on Christian Living


 
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

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


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...

Love Me Where You're At

Love Me Where You're At
(En Español)
I have discovered that, as we seek the Lord, our most difficult periods can be transformed into wonderful breakthroughs into God's love. For me one such season occurred during the years 1979 to1981. The association of churches with which I was aligned had fallen under spiritual deception. Not only were its core doctrines increasingly seeded with New Age influences, but also immorality crept in, and key leaders began leaving their wives for other women. I...

One of You Is a Gossip

One of You Is a Gossip
A perverse man spreads strife, and a slanderer separates intimate friends. ---Proverbs 16:28
Jesus made a remarkable statement concerning Judas. He said, "‘Did I Myself not choose you, the twelve, and yet one of you is a devil?’ Now He meant Judas the son of Simon Iscariot, for he, one of the twelve, was going to betray Him" (John 6:70-71).
To what was Jesus referring when He identified Judas as "a devil"? Was He speaking figuratively or...

Prayer Alert - Hurricane Dorian
Weather channels are telling us that a "monster hurricane" is heading toward Florida. They are forecasting that pretty much the entire state of Florida is in the projected path of this hurricane, with estimates that it will increase to a category 4 storm before it makes landfall. We have many friends, as well as our son, living in the path of this hurricane. Let's lift a Prayer Shield. Don't just watch, but watch...

The Prayer Womb

The Prayer Womb
When we picture a prayer warrior, we usually see a great-aunt or grandmother. I think that every family has one. You never find them looking into a crystal ball to know the future for little Johnny---they are at the throne of God creating Johnny's future in prayer. They are not wondering if Mary is going to make it; they are praying her through to victory. They do not have time to lament Harry's drinking problem; they are...

The Great Revolt
As though Jesus were reading a news summary of recent years, His prophecies of two thousand years ago clearly describe our times. Thus, we are compelled to discern accurately the significant era in which we live. Indeed, of the many prophetic fulfillments of our day, one in particular rises with undimmed candor. I am speaking of what the Bible calls the "apostasy." Recall Paul's warning:
"Let no one in any way deceive you, for [the...

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

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
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...
