Is The Chip the Mark?

CHIP RFIDSo you know about the the mark of the beast discussed in Revelation, right? Sidebar: If not, Revelation 13:16-17 is a must read (as always, pray for illumination – you don’t want to miss anything God wants you to get). For years people, scholars, experts, etc. have speculated on what the mark of the beast, the 666, would be. Some believe it is symbolic of something else. Some of us believe this will be a literal, tangible, experienceable, detectable marking that will determine whether you survive in Satan’s economy or burn because you refused to bow.

Clearly, the mark mechanism is here. It’s the rice-sized chip. I know the chip isn’t new or news. Remember when scientist(s)/inventors that voluntarily chipped themselves to test their innovations made the headlines? What is news to me, however is that more and more people, in fact a movement of people- all over the world, are volunteering to be chipped! Peep Dark Net. Certainly I get desensitization has been occurring over the years regarding the chip. First, we chipped stuff, laptops, etc., so we could find them in case of loss or theft. Next, we chipped dogs, so we could find them if they’re stolen or lost. Then we moved from dogs to kids. Same reason. The progression is blatant.

Welcome to IPF

 IPF LOGO STAMP 2IPF is a life impacting ministry, inspiring, preparing, and equipping people for victorious living through Jesus Christ.  As a non-denominational, come-as-you-are ministry, we believe God will reach others through anybody to the heart of somebody.  Following the example of Jesus, IPF welcomes those that are typically not welcomed in traditional church settings.  We welcome and embrace the same people in our church that Jesus welcomed and embraced in His.

Blessings @ IPF

GOD BLESS YOU1In a day and age where the existence of God and miraculous moves of God are denied by the masses, IPF has witnessed God rain down blessings from heaven in the lives of His children.  For example, we’ve asked God to restore families, heal marriages and health, restore faith, send a confirming word, increase finances, provide employment, promotion, cash flow, utility assistance, and transportation.  God moved.  He’s answered our prayers, again, and again, and again.  We’re not a name-it-and-claim-it ministry, yet we truly believe the Word of God, in Jesus’ own words, who says “ask and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you” (Matthew 7:7, KJV).  We are a church family that truly has faith in God.  When we pray for rain, we carry umbrellas…because we know God answers prayer.

United States Providing Homes for Homeless Vets

Melvin Tsosie

The Department of Veterans Affairs, along with the White House, is working to end homelessness amongst military veterans.  Opening Doors, a federal strategic plan to prevent and end veteran homelessness, appears to be the catalyst and guiding document.  So far, 2 out of 50 states are on board.  Virginia made history by becoming the first state in the U.S. credited with ending military veteran homelessness.

Since October 2014, Virginia has housed over 1,400 homeless veterans.  Connecticut is now following in Virginia’s footsteps.  It’s just a matter of time before all states will do the right thing by ensuring United States military veterans will never have to face homelessness again, ever.  Some are saying it’s too little too late. Certainly, it’s late for some yet just in time for others.

Love and Diversity Celebration

A POWERFUL CELEBRATION OF  LOVE, UNIQUENESS, AND CULTURES

Sunday Celebration Services

1st Sunday

All February, Ignited Praise Fellowship is celebrating Love & Diversity.  God is love.  God created humanity with purpose and made each one of us unique on purpose, for His purpose.  So this month, we especially celebrate love and the things that make us phenomenally different.

On 1st Sunday, Pastor Lacy preached on the topic: In Deed, God is Love.  We learned that although we say we love someone and they say they love us, our definitions of love may be different, which could end up causing problems.  For some, love means never having to say you’re sorry.  For others, love means being forgiven if they’ve found themselves having to say they’re sorry.  If everyone loved everyone as much as we say we do, we would be living in a different world and having a different conversation.  God is love and should be our example on love.  God walked His talked.  The Father loved us so much that He sacrificed His Son so we can spend eternity in His presence.  Love is something you do.  Doing is saying.  Doing “I love you” is saying “I love you”.  Therefore, love in deed.  Love in your actions.  Why? Because in deed, God is love.

2nd Sunday

2nd Sundays at IPF, the youth department, named Ignition, leads the entire 10am service.  The youth delivered spirited, humorous, and candid presentations about history-impacting individuals.  The youth praise dancers/steppers, God’s Angels and Lion of Judah, powerfully ministered to encourage hearts and inspire higher praise.  The church storyteller, Sis. Wade, told the a story about a regal eagle and a weasel.  The eagle took flight after capturing the weasel.  The flight was short-lived because the weasel gave the eagle fatal heartburn by attacking the eagle’s chest as the eagle flew.  Sis. Wade told the congregations they need to let the weasels in their lives go.  If not, your flight will be short-lived.  Weasels can be hurt, pain, hate, and yes even people.  If we want to soar, we have to let the weasel go.

Pastor Lacy then preached on the topic: Made to Make a Difference.  In John 6, Jesus and the disciples are being sought by a multitude.  Jesus had compassion on them and preached for hours to a crowd of about DIVERSITY25,000.  Then it was dinner time.  Andrew found a kid, the only one important enough to mention in scripture, who had packed a lunch.  2 fish and 5 loaves of bread.  Jesus used that meal to miraculously feed the multitude.  Then the disciples gathered up leftovers.  The one that is often overlooked in this story is the kid.  He was clearly resourceful, attentive, realistic, and prepared.  He was the only one with lunch.  Everything about him made a difference in this story and ultimately brought about a miracle.  God created that kid to make a difference then and He has created young people to make a difference now.  In fact, all of God’s created was made to make a difference. 

Generational Blessings Celebration

Generational Celebration

An Empowering Celebration of Family: Traditions, Customs, and Celebrations

Ignited Praise Fellowship launched their Generational Blessings Celebration Sunday, January 31, 2016, at the 10 am service. Excitement was in the air. Families were excited to surprise their special loved one they had nominated. Family, friends, and co-workers of the honorees were in attendance, much to the surprise of the honorees. Loved ones shared about how their honoree has and continues to positively impact their family and the lives of others.

Generational Blessings also culminated Pastor Lacy’s month-long teaching on the annual divine mandate for Ignited Praise Fellowship. 2016, IPF has been assigned by God to focus on wisdom walking. Generational Blessings Sunday was the perfect close for the month-long teaching on walking on wisdom.
