God is Faithful

July 21, 2016

Usually on Wednesdays at the Flea Market in Plant City, Fl, the majority of people saved are Spanish speaking. Yesterday, however, there was no one who spoke Spanish to work in the SOS Events booth. 

Sometimes our faith is small and we think that if a certain worker is not there no one will be saved. God knows our hearts and that we desire to see people come to him no matter what the language or who the soul winners are. The results yesterday were amazing! Eleven people trusted Jesus as their Savior and all were Engish speaking. Also, there were only two SOS Events workers at the booth, Randy and Alice. 

God blesses at every event. He knew exactly who the soul winners would be and also, who would be in the crowd. Praise the Lord for His faithfulness.

Psalms 44:21 Shall not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets of the heart.

Donkey or Elephant?

July 20, 2016

We do not usually post something on the blog that has been posted on Facebook or other media but this was too good not to post it again. Thanks, SOS Events board member, Dale Brown for the original post. (For those who may not know, the donkey and the elephant are symbols of the 2 main political parties in the USA)

John 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

In Every Moment

July 19, 2016

If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

In the happy moments, praise God.

In the difficult moments, seek God.

In the quiet moments, worship God.

In the painful moment, trust God.

In every moment, thank God.

I Thessalonians 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Love One Another

July 18, 2016

A few Bible verses to give God’s answer to the hate and prejudice that is going on in the world and especially the unrest and recent shootings of police officers in the USA. The only hope for America is to win people to the Lord and their hearts would be changed and the hate would be changed to love.

Acts 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

Romans 13:8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.

Galatians 5:13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.

1 Thessalonians 3:12 And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you:

God’s Promises

July 17, 2016

Three of God’s promises, just a few of the many promises found in the Bible.

2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Galatians 3:14                                                                                                                                                                                                               That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

1 Timothy 4:8                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.

There’s nobody so bad that they can’t be saved and nobody so good that they don’t need to be saved.
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Weeds In Your Garden

July 15, 2016

Do you have weeds in your garden? Some are very tiny and the roots have not taken hold. Others have a large root system and are almost impossible to pull up without the ground being softened by rain. The large ones when pulled up leave a bare spot in the lawn or your garden. If all the roots are taken up the weeds die but, if some of the roots are left behind the weeds will spring up again.

The weeds are like the temptation to sin in our life. The sin starts out very tiny, maybe just a thought that is not acted upon. But if we do not kill that thought before it grows, soon it will become a large and it will be much harder to get rid of because that sin will be rooted deep into a hardened heart. In order to completely remove that sin, our heart must be softened by the Holy Spirit and then the roots must be removed when we ask Jesus to forgive our sins and cleanse us. If we do not for sake the sin in our life it is like that little weed that root was not completely removed and we can once again be caught up in that same sin.

1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.


Seven Souls

July 14, 2016

Another Wednesday has passed and seven more people are on their way to Heaven because of the workers who give their time on Wednesday mornings to set up an SOS Events booth at the Plant City Fl Flea Market. What a tremendous blessing have souls saved every week. We know that it is God who gives the increase.

1 Corinthians 3:7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.

New Calling

July 13, 2016

Last night I accepted the call to be the senior pastor at Griffin Baptist Church, Lakeland. I’m currently in transition saying good-bye to Parkview after nearly 10 years (Which is not easy). Yet I am looking forward to exciting days ahead — God truly is amazing!  Randy Thomas

Randy and Romona also do many events for SOS Events ministry. He is a great soul winner and God will bless him in his new church. He will continue to work with SOS Events along with his new responsibilities. 

2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

Fanny Crosby-No Excuses

July 12, 2016

Fanny Crosby was blind from a small baby but never allowed her blindness to stop her from Serving Her Savior. She wrote the words to hundreds of hymns under her own name as well as pen names.

She was a teacher, author, wife and Godly, Christian. What a testimony to what one person can do who trusts fully in the Lord and allows the Holy Spirit to work through her.

Sometimes we have excuses why we cannot serve God. Illness, lack of money, job, family and many others. In the Bible a man used the excuse of having to bury his father. (Matthew 8:21) “What is your excuse? Decide to be effective for the Lord no matter what and get busy for Him. 

John 12:26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
