Go For The Gold

January 31, 2014

Flea Markets are a gold mine for evangelism. SOS Events now use Flea markets to train others and win the lost. SOS are seeing great success for presenting the gospel. The salvation leads are given to churches who are willing to do follow up. SOS Events also has a great follow up decipleship program. We are always looking for new churches and people to add to our team approach to bring the lost to Christ. When a church desires to learn another method to reach the lost give SOS a try. Training is free. OR PHONE 813 494 7512.
Proverbs 11:30
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life;
and he that winneth souls is wise.

All Things Are Possible

Seen on a church sign:
Faith makes things possible
Not easy
Mark 9:23
Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

Do Not Be Weary

January 29, 2014

January is always an extremely busy month for the staff of SOS ministries. The office staff has end of the year reports to get finished, the shop has several projects to complete, there is preparation for the many events that take place in Florida in the winter and there are new people to be trained, some for event workers and some to be event leaders.
All this activity can cause us to get weary, but the Bible says we will reap if we faint not.
Why is all this activity so necessary? SOULS. All of the effort is with the goal in mind of winning many people to Christ.
The promise is in the verse. WE WILL REAP.

Galatians 6:9
And let us not be weary in well doing:for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Today, if you have a need; believe and have faith in GOD who created the world, who saved your soul and who loves you and wants to give his child good things. Meditate on Him and thank Him for the answer.
Hebrews 11:6
But without faith it is impossible to please him:for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Today’s Weather Report

January 27, 2014

Today much of the USA has freezing, even dangerous weather conditions. Below zero in the north and snow and ice way into the south.
For several years we have heard the ” experts” say we have global warming, and I believe that God looks at our deteriorating nation with sadness for our lack of wisdom.
Jesus had some things to say about weather.
It is time for our Nation to wake up and stop wasteful spending trying to figure out the weather when God is in control of it.

Matthew 16:2-3
He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather:for the sky is red.
And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day:for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

You Must Be Born Again

January 26, 2014

“Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than going to a garage makes you an automobile.”
― Billy Sunday
Today is The Lord’s Day. Most Christians go to church on Sunday to worship The Lord, but what about the other 6 days.
Going to church does not make you a Christian. You must be born again.

John 3:3
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

At Home with The Lord

January 25, 2014

Today we will be attending a funeral of a sweet, elderly, Christian friend. Joanne always had a smile and a kind word for everyone. She will be missed by her husband, family and friends.
Yesterday we were asked to pray for a couple in our church whose 13 year old daughter died suddenly. Her parents, family and friends are grieving.
These two Christians are now home with The Lord, but their families need prayer.
We weep over our departed loved ones, but as children of God we are not left without hope.
The ultimate healing is to be in Heaven with our Savior, Jesus.
This is one of my favorite Bible verses:

Psalms 116:15
Precious in the sight of the Lord
is the death of his saints.

Soul Winners Opportunity

January 24, 2014

In Plant City, Fl one of the big events is Strawberry Festival. SOS has a booth in the festival every year for the past 10 years. In that time there has been over 2500 souls that made decisions for Christ.
This year the event is from February 28-March 9. We have volunteers who work for 4 hours in the booth winning people tp The Lord. It takes 12 people per day to man the booth.
If you are in this area and would be interested in joining us at Strawberry Festival give our office a call at 813-494-7927 or 813-494-7512 to schedule training and a slot to work the booth.
It is fun, simple and rewarding.

Matthew 9:38
Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

Testimony Using the “New” Picture Frame Board

January 23, 2014

My husband and I were packed and ready for our vacation. He felt he should call his brother before we left. After he hung up the phone he told me that something was not right. He didn’t sound well. We decided to drive to his house and visit him.

He lived alone for years and we had not seen him in over a week. When we arrived we could not find him immediately. He was in the upstairs bedroom and looked close to death. He had not eaten or had any water in four days. The ambulance was called and the doctor at the hospital told us that his kidneys had shut down. They believe his dementia was the cause of his not consuming food or water.

Before the ambulance arrived I spoke with my brother in law about eternity. I explained the three things that God cannot do. I asked him if he wanted to be 100% certain he was going to heaven. He said he did not.

A week in the hospital saw his rapid recovery. Even the doctors were amazed considering his age of 81. Throughout his hospital stay, onto rehab and finally admission to assisted living, I asked him if he would like to receive Christ using the “3 things” tract. The answer continued to be “no”.

Well,I did my part right? We are supposed to tell. I did. Multiple times. I could not give up though. I love my brother in law. I decided to use the picture frame size “3 things” board supplied by SOS Ministries. I told him my testimony again and asked if he would like to see something really interesting. He agreed. After going through the “3 things” board and asking how sure he was he was going to heaven, he said no one can be sure. I explained that he could be and asked if he wanted to be sure. This time the answer was YES!

On Thursday, January 16 at 6:15 PM, the angels in heaven rejoiced as my brother in law asked Jesus forgiveness and had his name written in the book of life. I believe the use of the “3 things” picture frame board as a visual was the key to his understanding of the simple gospel message. I was able to carry it in my purse into the facility and use it easily. Without that tool, prayer, and my heart burdened for him, I think his destination would not be where it is today.

Psalm 90:12
Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
