God Answers Prayer

March 5, 2019

SOS Events had a wonderful day at the Florida Strawberry Festival yesterday. In one 4 hour shift there were 37 Salvations. People from all walks of life, all ages and from different places but they come to Strawberry Festival to have fun. Then God touches their hearts, they come into the booth and make the most important decision of their lives, to ask Jesus to be their Savior. God answers the prayers of the volunteers and others who have a desire to see souls saved.

Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

JESUS

February 24, 2019

1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Preparation

February 23, 2019

Every event takes preparation. In Florida SOS Events is busy preparing for Strawberry Festival which starts next Thursday. Scheduling and training workers, decorating the booth, most importantly praying for workers and lost souls. There are also several events coming up in March and April.

In Alabama, the SOS Events team is preparing for 2 events on the same day, next Saturday. They have a training for a new group of soul winners this week, plus an appointment to see a Pastor of a large church to encourage him to get his people involved in winning the lost with SOS Events. Also, preparing to go to Talladega Races coming up soon.

The teams in States further north are still in extreme cold weather, but planning ahead for a successful Spring and Summer season. Why does everyone work so hard? A desire to see people accept Jesus as their Savior is our motivation and goal.

Luke 19:10 For the Son of man (Jesus) is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

Lights Out!

January 24, 2019

Our lives are so dependent on electricity, that when there is a power outage we have trouble doing ordinary things. No light, no coffee, no heat or air conditioning. No communication on social media. We feel helpless. The worst thing is the darkness. Then we light a candle. One small candle in a big room, but it gives light so we can see!

John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. He is the one that gives us true light. Once I was blind but now I can see, spiritually.

Our responsibility is to let the light of the gospel shine through us, so others may hear and be able to “see” the truth of the way of salvation. You may think that you will not do much, but remember the one little candle that lights a whole room. Let us shine for Jesus.

Annual Meeting

January 17, 2019

SOS Events is preparing for the second Annual Meeting on February 2, at Gapway Baptist Church in Lakeland, Florida. It takes a lot of work, thought and preparation. Arrange for food, music, prizes, guest speaker and all the other things that will make this Meeting a success. But, what if after all that work, no one comes? That would be sad. The invitation to the meeting is extended to all volunteers and friends of SOS Events Ministry, But you must RSVP if you are coming.

There is Someone else who is making preparation for a great meeting. He is the Lord Jesus preparing a place in Heaven for you. What if you don’t come? There is an invitation sent to you. To accept the invitation, you must invite Jesus to be your Savior. Admit you are a sinner, repent of those sins, believe in Jesus death, burial and resurrection. You can then be ready for that great meeting in Heaven. Jesus said:

John 14:2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

The Way to Start the Day

January 15, 2019

A reminder to start everyday with prayer. Jesus listens and answers the simplest of prayers. He wants to hear from us everyday.

Psalms 54:2 Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth.

Have a Blessed Friday

January 4, 2019

Sometimes we feel alone or depressed, especially after the holiday season is over. Maybe looking forward to the weekend is not joyful for you, but there is someone who loves you and is with you. You are not alone. Jesus is always there not only on Friday but every day of the week, month and year.

Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Past and Future

December 31, 2018

New Years Eve 2018…Time to reflect on the year that is ending and look to the New Year ahead. Joys, sorrow, memories and lessons learned in 2018 are now behind. Tomorrow starts a New Year. Time to look forward. It is a good idea to set some goals. Lose weight, do a better job at work, get better grades in school, witness more, help others. Whatever your resolution, keep it. Many of us make resolutions or goals and by January 10th they are already forgotten. The only way to keep our resolutions is to ask Jesus for help and look to Him as our example.

The goal for SOS Events Ministry in 2019 is to win more people to Jesus, get more events in new areas, train more Christians to work at events and Serve Our Savior faithfully. You can help by praying, giving or volunteering. Let us make 2019 the best year ever.

Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Christmas is Past

December 30, 2018

Christmas is over, time to take down the beautiful decorations and keeping in our hearts the memories of Christmas 2018. It always makes me sad to put away those wonderful things that make Christmas special every year. As we put away the lights, tree, nativity sets, let us not put away the truth of Christmas, Jesus was born into this world to be our Savior, and it is our responsibility to tell others. So let us make a resolution to be better witnesses in 2019, and Serve Our Savior with more zeal than we ever had before.

Acts 26:22-23 Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come. That Christ should suffer, and that he should be the first that should rise from the dead, and should shew light unto the people, and to the Gentiles.:

Prophecy Fulfilled

December 28, 2018

After the wise men’s visit, Joseph was warned in a dream to take Jesus and Mary and flee to Egypt. Herod was seeking to kill Jesus and not getting a report back from the wise men he had all the young children in Bethlehem killed. But Jesus was safe and the little family stayed in Egypt until Herod was dead.

Then once again Joseph had a dream and returned but went to live in Nazareth where Jesus grew from childhood until He started His earthly ministry.

God’s Word is true. Every prophesy concerning Jesus birth was fulfilled down to the last detail. Many people leave Jesus in the manger as a baby but do not believe future events also predicted in the Bible. Jesus is the Messiah, He did die on the cross and He is coming again to rule and reign over all the world. Are you ready for a great future with Jesus the coming King?

Matthew 2:13-15 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt: And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.
