What is Faith?

September 1, 2018

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

How can we have faith in God when our world seems to be falling apart? Disappointment, illness, accidents and many things happen in our lives to make our faith waver.

Faith is knowing that God is in control. Trusting Him even when we cannot understand why things are going so wrong. God does not promise Christians a trouble free life, what He does promise is that He is with us every step of the way. He will and He does work things out for our good.

You may ask me how I know. Today, I can Praise the Lord for taking me through the death of 2 sons, a grandchild and 2 Godly husbands and other trials and heartaches. God has never left me or forsaken me but always brings what I need when I need it. He uses those things in my life to bring encouragement to others. That is what faith in God does for me and He will do the same for you if you have faith in Him. The evidence of things unseen. Carolyn Curtis

Faith in God

August 27, 2018

Our faith is in the God of the Bible who keeps his promises.

Galatians 3:22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.

Acts 26:18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

The Powerful Word

August 4, 2018
The Lord’s Word will not return void. The Word of God is alive and powerful.
Erwin W. Lutzer wrote a great illustration from the book Yesterday, Today, and Forever, The Word of God in the Life of His People for the verse, Jeremiah 23:29.
“An angry young man stood at the back of a train and threw the new Bible his mother gave him as far as he could. Yet months later he returned, repentant that he had mistreated God’s Book. He learned that the damaged Bible had fallen into the hands of a child who read it and was converted. Now both met as brothers in Christ; the one as a restored believer, the other as a newly converted twelve-year-old. What other book can soften the heart of an angry man and convert a child? Only the Bible.

Is not my word like as a fire? saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?

Jeremiah 23:29  (KJV)

Real Joy

“When you have His joy in your heart, it doesn’t necessarily mean your pain or hurt will be taken away. It means you’ll be able to bear it.” Adrian Rogers Image result for free image joy in heart

Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance.

The Cross

Man Kneeling in Front of Cross

1 Corinthians 1:18

For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

The Bible

July 30, 2018

Dwight L. Moody said, “The Bible was not given for our information, but for our transformation.”

Romans 12:2

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

Praise for 24 Decisions

July 30, 2018

Thank you to part of the Florida SOS Team for taking time out on a Saturday to share the plan of salvation to families attending the YMCA Camp Cristina Back Pack Event July 28th in Riverview. We praise the Lord for 24 more souls that are now 100% sure they will go to heaven. Thank you to the coordinators of this event for the invitation to come.

As you see in the picture below, the display board says, “See Three Things God Cannot Do“.  For those of you who do not know the ministry of  Event Evangelism / SOS Events Ministry I would like to share what those 3 things are.

 1) God Cannot Lie  Titus 1:2   (God loves you)

 2) God Cannot Change  Malachi 3:6  (If God loves you and He cannot lie, how long will    He love you?)

3) God Cannot Let Anyone Into Heaven Unless They Are Born Again  John 3:3-5  (Are you 50%, 75% or 100% sure you would go to Heaven if you died today?)

YOU can be 100% sure. According to Scripture it is as simple as the ABC’s…

A – Admit that YOU have sinned. Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”

B – Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth… and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him (Jesus) from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

C – Call upon the Lord. Romans 10:13, “For whosoever (you) shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.”

If you are not 100% sure and would like to be, here is a simple prayer to call on the Lord to repent of your sins and accept Jesus as your Savior. “Lord Jesus, I admit I am a sinner, I believe you died on the cross for forgiveness of my sins, I ask that you forgive my sins, come into my heart and make my life new. I receive you as my Savior. Thank you. Jesus. Amen.”

If you prayed this prayed, please contact the ministry for a free Bible study to help you start your new walk in the Lord.  http://www.sosevents.org
