Ordered steps

January 21, 2014

Tom and I had many things to do on Sunday so we decided to go to the early service at church.
After church we had about one hour before our appointment so we had time to go to the gas station to fill up and stop for a cup of coffee.
When we got to the gas station it looked busy so we went for coffee first.
Returning to the gas station, every pump was in use so we had to wait.
Finally there was a pump free so as Tom pulled up, I got out to pump gas. (Tom has a harder time getting in and out of the car because of a bad knee)
We have a sign on the back of our window that says “DO YOU KNOW THE 3 THINGS GOD CANNOT DO?”
A man was at the next gas pump and asked, “Do you have a church?”
I replied, “No, but we do have a ministry that tells people how they can go to Heaven.”
After he asked a few more questions, I told him the “3 things.”
1. GOD CAN NOT LIE. 2. GOD CANNOT CHANGE 3. GOD CAN NOT LET ANYONE INTO HEAVEN UNLESS THEY ARE BORN AGAIN.
“Are you 50, 75 or 100% sure if you died today you would go to Heaven?”
He was not sure but wanted to be so as I explained how he needed to A. Admit he was a sinner, B. Jesus died on the cross for his sins and C. He needed to call on The Lord to save him.
I wanted Tom to pray with Emile, so I motioned for him to get out of the car as I asked, ” Would you be willing to call on The Lord with me right now?”
His answer was affirmative, so the 3 of us held hands and Tom led him in a prayer for salvation.
Emile was wonderfully saved.
He is a businessman who travels all over the world and his home country is the Ukraine. God brought him to that gas station at that time so he could hear the Gospel and be saved.
Psalms 37:23
The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord:
and he delighteth in his way.

Obituary

January 20, 2014

I received the following obituary from a friend.

Maybe the founding fathers were right to only allow land owners to vote. Maybe people that are on the government dole should not be allowed to vote. Scary thoughts!

Important historical information to read regardless of who you voted for in 2012.

Interesting Obituary

In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh , had this to say
about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior: “A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship.”

“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith;

From spiritual faith to great courage;

From courage to liberty;

From liberty to abundance;

From abundance to complacency;

From complacency to apathy;

From apathy to dependence;

From dependence back into bondage.”

The Obituary follows:

Born 1776, Died 2012 – It doesn’t hurt to read this several times.
Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the last Presidential election:

Number of States won by: Obama: 19 Romney: 29
Square miles of land won by: Obama: 580,000 Romney: 2,427,000
Population of counties won by: Obama: 127 million Romney: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Obama: 13.2 Romney: 2.1

Professor Olson adds: “In aggregate, the map of the territory Romney won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country.

Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low income tenements and living off various forms of government welfare…”

Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the “complacency and apathy” phase of Professor Tyler’s definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation’s population already having reached the “governmental dependency” phase..

If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegals – and they vote – then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.

Apathy is the greatest danger to our freedom……

1 Corinthians 15:34
Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God:I speak this to your shame.

Wake Up

January 19, 2014

I do not have a TV NEWS program. If I did I WOULD TELL AMERICA THE TRUTH ACCORDING TO GODS WORD. Evil has taken over our goverment . THE PRESIDENT LIES. EVERYONE IN GOVERMENT IS OVER PAID. THEY DO NOT KNOW That it is sinful to mislead Americans with promises that are untrue. GOVERNMENT LEADERS HAVE TURNED FROM OUR MILITARY. OUR PRESIDENT AND SECRETARY OF STATE ALLOWED GOOD AMERICANS TO BE KILLED.

SOS Events ministry has people all over the UNITED STATES telling people how to know they will go to heaven. Soon it will be too late because Christ will take the christians out of the world. The evil people will remain and their friend satan will rule all. If you do not believe this and have not trusted Jesus to save you, I assure you WE WILL NOT SEE YOU IN HEAVEN. WAKE UP NEWS PROGRAM PRODUCERS AND DIRECTORS. WAKE UP CHURCHES. WAKE UP AND STAND UP CHRISTIANS.

Tom Curtis

Romans 13:11
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep:for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.

God Answers Prayer

January 18, 2014

God answers prayer. One of the great things about God is that He cares about the little things in our lives.
Sometimes we think He only answers in a crisis or a big problem but if we are truly following His leading He loves to give us what we ask.
SOS participates in a big event every year, the Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Fl. It takes many people to witness in the booth over a 11day period. Many churches are invited to send a team to help.
Tom and I were delivering DVDs about the festival to the area churches for the congregation to watch and it was important that each DVD was given to a responsible person at every church.
The first church we went to, no one was there, so we continued on to other places.
About 2 hours later, I prayed and ask The Lord to have someone at that first church so we could finish our deliveries.
We arrived at the church and there was a car there. It was the pastor’s wife.
She said, “I am never here this time of day, but my husband ask me to meet him here today and I have no idea why.”
I told her about the prayer and we rejoiced together, knowing that God answered a specific prayer.
Matthew 21:22
And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

Radio Shack Salvation

January 17, 2014

The Radio Shack Salvation story from yesterday is not finished. There were two clerks in the store when Tom went in and talked to the first girl that got saved. At that time there were other customers in the store so he was unable to talk to both girls. Then when I, Carolyn, went in to meet the one young woman that had just got saved, Tom had opportunity to witness to the other clerk.
No other customers came into the store the entire time that we both were in there. The second girl gladly received Christ also.
What a great blessing to have the privilege of giving the Gospel to these sweet young women and to have both of them trust Christ as their Savior.
Romans 1:16
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ:for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

Witnessing In Everyday Situations

January 16, 2014

Witnessing is a natural part of everyday living for Tom no matter where he goes. Yesterday, SOS needed a cable from Radio Shack.
There was a sweet young woman helping him find what he needed and when the purchase was completed, he asked her the question he often asks, “Are you 50, 75, or 100% sure if you died today you would go to Heaven?
“I think so, I’m a good person,” was her answer.
“You really aren’t sure are you? Would you like to be sure? ” Tom asked.
When she said she would, Tom then led her to The Lord.
There is nothing that lifts our spirit more than to be used to witness and then see a person respond to the Gospel.
Two blessings, a young woman is on her way to Heaven, and Tom’s heart was overflowing with joy.
Ephesians 1:13
In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation:in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

Hang in There

January 15, 2014

There is a poster that hung in my office several years ago. It had a picture of a kitten hanging on a branch of a tree and the words were, ” Hang in there baby, Friday’s coming.”
Today things sometimes look bleak and we get discouraged but the good news is that Jesus is coming soon. What a joy to know that we shall see Him face to face, if we know Him as our Savior.
Luke 21:28
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

The Great Phycisian

January 14, 2014

Everyone has to go to the doctor for some reason. Sometimes it is something non-threatening like a cold or sore throat. Sometimes it is serious like heart attack or cancer. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all physicians were Christians? We are very fortunate to have one that is a Christian. He prays for us and we likewise pray for him.
How can you tell if you doctor is a Christian? Ask him or her or tell them you are praying for them. Always carry tracts to hand out when going to your doctor. (SOS has a simple tract if you would like a sample)
Also you can search the web to see if there is a Christian physician in your area.
Always remember that it is the Great Physician, Jesus, who is the true healer. Go to Him first and then trust His servant doctor for the best care.
Matthew 8:7
And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.

Rejoice in The Lord

January 13, 2014

Do you wake up with a song in your heart? Today my song was “This is the Day That The Lord has Made, I Will Rejoice and Be Glad in It.”!
That made me think that rejoicing is a choice. We choose to be joyful or we can choose to be miserable.
Today let us make the choice to be glad in The Lord.
Philippians 4:4
Rejoice in the Lord alway:and again I say, Rejoice.

Wonderful Day!

January 11, 2014

Do you get excited about serving The Lord? SOS Events main purpose is winning the lost to Christ and training others how to become soul winners, however, there are a lot of things that go on to keep the ministry running smoothly.
Book work, printing, making displays, creating new tools to help make witnessing easier, maintenance on the property, and many more things to numerous to mention. All these things are necessary to a growing ministry and sometimes the tasks seem overwhelming.
Then at the end of the day we look back and feel that everything that we did that day went well and much was accomplished. Yesterday was one of those days.
What a blessing to see projects get finished. All the goals for the day done. New excitement about serving The Lord and seeing Him give wisdom and blessing. To Him be the Glory!!
Galatians 1:5
To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
