Bethlehem Where Jesus Was Born

December 19, 2022

Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus was foretold by Micah 700 years before Christ’s birth. Micah named the exact town and Matthew records the event. Bethlehem is still standing today and both Biblically and historically is proven to be the actual place where Jesus was born.

The journey to Bethlehem took Mary and Joseph about 4 days. It was not an easy journey for a woman about to give birth. Tradition says she rode on a donkey but that is not in the Bible account. She may have had to walk that distance.

Today take a few minutes from your busy Christmas preparation and think about the obedience of Joseph and Mary. They were willing to sacrifice time, ridicule, and hardship to bring JESUS into the world.

Two humans that made a difference to everyone from that time for all eternity.

Luke 2:4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

Micah 5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

Elizabeth and Mary

December 17, 2022

Can you imagine Elizabeth’s joy to share with her friends and family that, after all this time, in her old age, she was finally going to be a mother? And how exciting that her son was the one God had chosen to prepare the people for the coming of the Messiah!

Elizabeth had a visitor. Mary, her cousin came to see her, probably to share the news that she was expecting a baby, who was to be the Savior.

When Elizabeth saw Mary, her baby leapt in her womb. Elizabeth what is overjoyed that the mother of the Savior came to visit her.

Luke 1:36 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.

Luke 1:41-42 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.

Church Sign

September 7, 2022

This sign was on a church marquee. We may smile at that but there is a lesson in it.

None of us know when it will be our last day on earth. Death comes to the old and the young. We could have a tragic accident and be gone in seconds. Illness could strike and we could be gone in a day or two.

Are you ready? There is only one way to be sure of eternal life in Heaven. Jesus is the way , the truth and the life. Trust in Hime today, before it is too late.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6

Traveling Blessings

April 2, 2022

While traveling, Carolyn Curtis and her daughter were not on a main highway but going through a small town when the phone rang.

A white work truck was following behind her. On the back of Carolyn’s car is this written: DO YOU KNOW 3 THINGS GOD CAN NOT DO? and Carolyn’s cell phone number.

Carolyn usually does not answer unknown callers but felt that she should answer this one.

A man said, “What are the 3 Things GOD Cannot do?”

Carolyn explained, GOD Can Not Lie, GOD Can Not Change and GOD Can Not Let Anyone into Heaven unless he is born again.

After a little more conversation, both Aiden and Howie, the 2 men in the truck, prayed and ask Jesus to be their Savior.

Both men will receive a Bible Study and will continue to learn more about their new faith.

It is a good thing to obey the still small voice that had Carolyn answer that phone call.

And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. Luke 14:23

Lucas 14:23 – Y dijo el señor al siervo: Vé por los caminos y por los vallados, y fuérza[los] á entrar, para que se llene mi casa.

God Directs Our Path!

March 1, 2022

This is a photo of Nino and Carolyn Curtis. Carolyn had plans to go to a church luncheon yesterday , but GOD had another path.

Nino called the SOS Events office wanting to be trained to work at events. He needed to come at 12 o’clock. Lunchtime. Plans changed and what a blessing!

Nino is bilingual, English and Spanish. SOS Events needs more Spanish speaking people and GOD sent Nino.

God truly directs our path.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and He will direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

Confia de todo carazón en el señor y no en tu propia inteligencia. Ten presente al señor en todo lo que hagas, u el te llevara por el camino recto.
Proverbios 3:5-6

What Are You Waiting For?

January 5, 2022

The Bible says, today is the day of salvation. Are you waiting until you are good enough? There is none righteous.

Are you holding on to a sin that is in your life and you do not want to let go? Jesus cleanses all our sin. Give it to Him.

Maybe you are trusting in another god who you think will get you to Heaven. Jesus is the only way. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

You may think you have plenty of time but we are not guaranteed one more moment of life. Do not wait any longer. Make today your day of salvation.

Jesus Is Coming

Black Friday

November 27, 2020

The day after Thanksgiving is called Black Friday in the USA. People go out and shop for all the “bargains” they can find.

The stores and online merchants put things on sale, hoping that customers will buy, especially for the holidays.

In all the frenzy of buying for the perfect gift, we should remember that we have already been given the Perfect Gift. God sent Jesus, His only Son, to be born into this world, grow into manhood, die on the cross and rise from the dead.

This gift lasts for all eternity. If you have not received this Gift. Today, is the day to receive Jesus as your Savior.

John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Answered Prayer

October 31, 2020

God answers prayer. At the Fall Festival at Tabernacle Christian School in Bradenton, Fl, God blessed the SOS Events Team with 6 salvation decisions.

Even before the booth was completely set up, 3 boys came over to see the “3 Things God Can Not Do”.

They had a chore to do so they promised to come back.

Carolyn stepped away from the booth and that is when the trio came back. However, they did not want to talk to anyone but her, so, they waited.

They came back to the soul winning table with Carolyn and trusted Jesus as their Savior.

They all said they attended Tabernacle Christian School. When the Principal stopped by a little later, he was given the decision cards for the 3 boys.

The Principal said, “This one is my grandson, we prayed for him this morning. God answered prayer the very day He was asked!

Alice, Glenn and Dena were faithful to witness at the event and God blessed again with 3 more teens who accepted Jesus. They were not from the Christian School, but lived in the neighborhood.

I John 5:14&15 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
