A Week with Francis Frangipane
Becoming a House of Prayer
Approximately two thousand years ago, a decree was issued from the judgment seat of God. It provided “legal” protection for the church against the devil. Indeed, when Jesus died for our sins, the “ruler of this world” was judged (John 16:11). Our debts were nailed to Christ’s cross and canceled; principalities and powers were disarmed. Because of Jesus, we have a legal right not only to be protected from our enemy but to triumph over him(in prayer) (Col. 2:13-15).
The sacrifice of Christ was so complete and the judicial decision
from God against Satan so decisive that divine protection, enough
to cover even the entire church in a city, has been granted.
(See Revelation 3:10.) Christ’s death is the lawful platform upon
which the church rises to do spiritual warfare; His Word is the eternal sword we raise against wickedness. Having said that, we must also acknowledge that the church has only rarely walked in such victory since the first century. Why? The answer is this: To attain the protection of Christ, the church must embrace the intercession of Christ. We must become a house of prayer.
