But we all, with unveiled face,
beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord,
are being transformed into the same image
FROM glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
2 Corinthians 3:18
When challenged to appraise the authenticity and source of someone's relevance, the most common question raised is "Where are you from? " It is a basic fact of cultural relationship that every person is FROM somewhere. It is the tendency of natural reason to understand someone NOW by assessing where they come FROM. This concept of FROM is a reflection of what was as if looking in a rear view mirror. But the FROM recognized spiritually in "light" of the eternal Kingdom of God, is a reflection of the Glory of God which gives a real time picture of who you are in the NOW and in the FOREVER.
Jesus came from Heaven to earth as the only begotten Son of God. There was a man sent FROM God, whose name was John (the Baptist). Abraham came FROM the land of Ur. The crew of the ship that was being tossed around in a tempest in the sea asked the disobedient prophet Jonah: " Please tell us! For whose cause is this trouble upon us? What is your occupation? And where do you come from? What is your country? And of what people are you?” When Pilate was sorely troubled and afraid as he was being pressured to condemn Jesus to death, he interrogated him, asking: "where are you from?" .
Beloved child of God, you and I surely are FROM somewhere, but we are moving FROM glory to glory NOW. If you know Jesus as your Lord and have His Divine Nature of eternal life NOW, then YOU ARE IN this world but YOU ARE NOT of this world. Your soul and body are in this place, but your spirit and power is FROM a better, eternal place. If you are in Christ NOW, then you are a citizen of Heaven NOW. "For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ." Philippians 3:20. Citizenship is regarded as culture-specific. Your culture is supernatural, eternal, all powerful, and in the name of Jesus, above all other powers on earth.
I humbly invite you to join me this Thursday evening and Sunday Morning Touch Heaven to move FROM the place you are in to the place you are going. Come and draw from the faith and mantle of the House for your miracle NOW.

Pastor Frank returned with an amazing report from Africa, fresh revelation, and an excitement for signs and wonders !
Pastor Frank in Africa - August 2013
"And from the days of John the Baptist until now
the kingdom of heaven suffers violence,
and the violent take it by force.”
Words from Pastor Frank during His recent Mission:
Greetings from Africa. It is 3 am Africa time. The Glory Days conference concluded at TBN in E London South Africa. It was a tremendous witness of the Sovereign Power and Mind of The Lord. He took over the conference and personal agendas and programs yielded to a powerful visitation of His presence with glory, power, miracles, and signs. Thousands of testimonies from attendees and viewers poured in of healings, financial blessings, amazing breakthroughs, and deliverance.
I was assigned a morning session and ministered from my book in progress, the Glory Factor, specifically the revelation of "When Grace Kisses Glory". Over 1,000 pastors and 1,500 additional attendees eagerly received this powerful revelation, and then a large line of 2,000 people was formed around the entire assembly as myself and my team of four activated them to move through Grace into Glory. People lay on the floor as the Spirit of God transformed their spirits and this supernatural atmosphere hovered in and intensified in the auditorium all day.
By evening, not even Apostle Maldonado could present his message as the spontaneous worship and praise was overwhelming. There were three hours of live broadcast worship, praise and prophetic visitations, with over 103 countries participating in this holy encounter, The Lord had me prophecy love on air over television that He was releasing a Spirit of liberty and deliverance over the airwaves upon the continent of Africa, specifically to break the strongholds of witchcraft, cultism, Islam, and religious chains. I proclaimed that the airwaves of TBN were saturating the atmosphere over Africa and that the powers of darkness were being attacked and repelled with strike force to prepare the way of The Lord !
"But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you." Matthew 12:28
Hundreds of people were delivered, but one particular instance stood out. A large man rushed the stage in a fury of anger and violence. Four team members intercepted him at which time, it became physical. Carlos Zambrano (yes the major league pitcher who was part of our team) was punched in the nose which staggered him and drew blood. Carlos is around 6’4", weighing 265 lbs. (I later mused with him how the demons took on the largest man there). I left my place ministering to people in front of the stage, and came in front of the demon-possessed man who was giving the four men trying to restrain him all that they could handle. I took authority in the Name of Jesus, binding the demons and commanding them to stop and be still. I directed the ushers to let him go. As they cautiously released their holds on him, they were astonished as he did not make a move. I grabbed his head in my hands and placed it on my chest, and hugged him and spoke peace and love into his ear. He grabbed me strong in his arms and then began to cry uncontrollably as he was set free. The demons were cast out and his entire countenance immediately changed. The next evening he came on stage and gave his testimony of a life of torment and anger and pain - now set free by Jesus. The entire assembly rejoiced as he testified and was first hugged - and then as he hugged Carlos, asking his forgiveness. Carlos did so and humbly honored him with brotherly love.
We are now positioned in Northern Africa and our Touch Heaven Strike Force Conference began this afternoon after we ministered in our local church here. I was led to move the congregation as we began into repentance to break strongholds, destroy spiritual idols of golden calves, and to tread upon serpents. This evening we were informed that a giant puff adder was killed near the tent during this service. This was caught on video. I plan on sharing it with you in Service this Sunday at Touch Heaven upon my return.
Some of you have expressed concerned for our safety - not to worry - we are under the shadow of the Almighty, secure in our faith that “no weapon formed against us shall prosper”! The top security official for the entire province of Samburu visited us at church and attended this afternoon, announcing that the area is secure and that he was personally overseeing our security. We have been assigned two armed military guards to accompany us. One is female, was saved in my last crusade here, and is now a member of our church - to the Glory of God! The commander of the local federal police force also was saved, attends the church, and is in attendance.
The Strike Force Africa was a powerful expereince that is in unity with world-wide revival. Touch Heaven Ministries is on the move with the supernatural power of God.
Blessings and love,
Is God Speaking?
" For since the creation of the world
God's invisible qualities
—His eternal power and divine nature—
have been clearly seen,
from what has been made,
so that men are without excuse."
All of us are caught up in tempests and storms of life that seem to have no foreseeable resolution. With faith, we have the blessed assurance that there is an expiration date to every problem and testing that you encounter. But until that moment of breakthrough, and while struggling in the eye of the storm, it is PEACE that you are seeking - peace enough to sustain while the world seems to be coming apart around you.
You are asking: "Where is My Rest? When is my Breakthrough ?
Pastor Frank addressed this directly during Sunday Morning Worship, on April 28 at Touch Heaven Canfield Church in Canfield, Ohio (USA). He shared revelation of how to rest in the midst of your storm, to guide you into your promise of breakthrough, andimparted a powerful and moving ministry time of "peace that passes understanding."
The Touch Heaven Ministry world-wide is joined in unity - in person and across the miles in your prayers - as we give praise and glory to our Blessed Lord and speak HIS HOLY WORD.
If you cannot attend Worship Services in the Touch Heaven Church in Canfield, Ohio, please join us always in the unity of communal prayer that arises within the Touch Heaven family as the days go on and span the entire earth, for we are in unity as we give praise, honor, and glory to our Almighty God. Amen. Praise God - forever and ever!
Blessed is HIS Name forever and ever. Listen . . . for HE is speaking to you . . .
