The Secret Of Joyful Living

January 17, 2022

It is not really a secret at all. It is the acronym is JOY!

JESUS, OTHERS and YOU. Put Jesus first, others 2nd and yourself last. That is a recipe for true joy in your life.

Jesus is the true source of joy, even in the most difficult circumstances. If you put others ahead of yourself it is hard to have a pity party. Finally, you will get to think of yourself, but then you go back to the first, Jesus.

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33

And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you. Ephesians 4:32

Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Matthew 6:25

Looking For A Blessing?

January 15, 2022

Do you need to be encouraged today? Looking for something to lift your spirits?

Search You Tube for some old hymns. Listen and sing along.

“The Old Rugged Cross”. “Victory In Jesus”. “Great Is Thy Faithfulness” “How Great Thou Art” “When We All Get To Heaven”. There are many more hymns and spiritual songs that are being forgotten.

The Bible tells us to sing unto the Lord. It is hard to be discouraged when we are singing, especially those songs that have meaning and honor the name of Jesus.

Do You Feel Overwhelmed?

Sometimes we feel overwhelmed with our life. Maybe it is our job, family relationships, illness or circumstances beyond our control.

We want someone to take all our troubles and burdens away.

Good News! We have a friend who is there to help us. He promises to go with us through any trial or circumstance. He will never leave us or forsake us. His name is Jesus.

Two Events on Saturday

January 10, 2022

Two events were held on Saturday, January 8th, the first events of 2022 for SOS Events.

The photos are of the event at Pioneer Village in Dade City, Florida, where GOD sent 3 people into the SOS Events booth to hear the gospel and accept Jesus as their Savior.

The second event was the monthly Food Distribution at Turkey Creek Baptist Church. Six people received Jesus as their Savior.

God is so good to allow SOS Events to be in many events where people hear about the love of Jesus and trust Him to take them to Heaven.

Romans 10:9 – That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Worship the Lord!

Joseph’s Warnings From God

December 29, 2021

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

Anna, a Prophetess

December 28, 2021

Anna, a prophet, was also there in the Temple. She was the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher, and was very old. She was a widow, for her husband had died when they had been married only seven years.

Probably, after her husbands death, Anna would have been encouraged to get married again and have children.

Anna, chose to stay single. She chose to serve the Lord. She chose to fast and pray, worshiping the Lord day and night. She told people the news of the Savior that was coming, no matter how long it might be before he came.

She knew her purpose and she didn’t let anyone’s opinions or comments keep her from it. Then Anna saw Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus in the temple and knew her purpose had been fulfilled.

Luke 2:36-38 And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity; And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption i

Simeon With Baby Jesus In The TempleTerrace

December 27, 2021

The Christmas story did not end with the birth of Jesus. That was just the beginning. The Bible records little about baby Jesus. We know He was taken to the temple to be dedicated to the Lord when Mary’s time of purification was over as the law of Moses commanded. A sacrifice of a pair of turtle doves or two young pigeons.

While at the temple Mary and Joseph met two people. Today we will talk about Simeon.

He was righteous and devout and was eagerly waiting for the Messiah to come and rescue Israel. The Holy Spirit was upon him and had revealed to him that he would not die until he had seen the Lord’s Messiah. That day the Spirit led him to the Temple. So when Mary and Joseph came to present the baby Jesus to the Lord as the law required, Simeon was there. He took the child in his arms and praised God, saying,

Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel. Luke 2:29-32

Merry Christmas!
