Blessed New Year from SOS Events

December 30, 2009

Our staff wishes everyone a Blessed New Year. You can be a vital part of this ministry through prayer and/or support. God blessed SOS with faithful staff, volunteers and supporters in 2009 and our prayer is that He will do even greater things in 2010.
Prayer requests are: good health for staff, wisdom for the schedule, safety when traveling, new workers for SOS and most of all many new converts in 2010.

The Night Before Jesus Came

December 18, 2009

Twas the night before Jesus came and all through the house
Not a creature was praying, not one in the house.
Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

The children were dressing to crawl into bed,
Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.

When out of the East there arose such a clatter
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
I knew in a moment this must be The Day!

The light of His face made me cover my head
It was Jesus! Returning just like He had said.
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

In the Book of Life which He held in His hand
Was written the name of every saved man.
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name:
When He said, “It’s not here” my head hung in shame.

The people whose names had been written with love
He gathered to take to His Father above.
With those who were ready He rose without a sound
While all the rest were left standing around.

I fell to my knees, but it was too late:
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate
I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight:
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

In the words of this poem the meaning is clear;
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There’s only one life and when comes the last call
We’ll find that the Bible was true after all!

The staff of SOS Events prays that you are looking forward to Jesus coming again and we wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas.

A Timely Message

December 15, 2009

Seven years ago this information was given to me.
It is the desire of SOS Ministries to provide it to you for your awareness.

Billy Graham’s daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her, “How could God let something like this happen?” (Regarding Katrina) Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said, “I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we’ve been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?”

In light of recent events…terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (she was murdered) complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school. The Bible says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK. Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn’t spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem
(Dr. Spock’s son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he’s talking about. And we said OK. Now we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don’t know right from wrong, and why it doesn’t bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

Isn’t this taking place today? What can you do about it?

Two Delivery men saved at SOS office

December 14, 2009

God is so good. SOS has received several Christmas offerings this year and with these extra funds we were able to purchase a much needed used storage shed. Thank you to all our faithful supporters and those of you who gave extra in these difficult financial times.
We hired 2 men to deliver and set up the shed. Tom asked if he could help and they said “No.” They skillfully placed and secured the shed for immediate use.
After they completed the job, Tom invited them into the office. He asked them if they knew the “3 Things God Can Not Do.” They did not know but said they would like to know what the 3 Things were.
Tom set a presentation board on the table and proceeded with the explaination of the “3 Things God Can Not Do”. Then he pointed to the sign on the wall, “Are you 50, 75, or 100% sure if you died right now you would go to heaven?”
Their answer was “We don’t know.”
Tom Asked, “Would you like to know for sure?”
The plan of salvation was explained and received and now there is two new Christians born into the family of God.
God will bring the lost to you if you ask and are prepared.
