Partnership

August 28, 2019

SOS Events Ministry partners with Source of Light Ministry in Georgia. When a person fills out a decision card at an SOS Events booth, that name, address and age is sent to Source of Light, then an age appropriate Bible Study is sent to that person. The results are amazing. Recently, in one week 130 completed first Bible Studies were returned to Source of Light for correction and prayer. Most of those studies came from SOS Events contacts. The Bible Studies will continue to be sent as long as the individual continues to complete them and send them in. The average is 13 or more lessons. What a wonderful foundation for a new believer.

John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Jesus is the Reason for the Season

November 25, 2017

Thanksgiving Day is now past and most people are now getting ready for the biggest holiday of the year. Shopping, wrapping, cooking and cleaning is primary on the minds of everyone. In all of that preparation we tend to forget what Christmas is all about. There is a saying, “Jesus is the reason for the season.” How true. Do not neglect your devotion time with Him. Bible reading and prayer are more important when we are busy. It keeps our focus on Jesus and helps us get through the work and preparation for the Holidays.

Psalms 29:2 Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

Trying to Loose Weight?

August 30, 2017

Many of us are trying to loose weight. We diet, exercise, and try to stay away from food that will keep us from our goal. The Bible says we have weight that we need to get rid of and it is called sin. We need to decide to loose the “weight” of sin in our lives. Jesus said He is the bread of life. We must first trust Him to take away our sin. Then a good exercise is to read the Bible and pray everyday. Then put away anything that will keep sin in our lives. It may be wrong friends, or a bad habit, or going to places where we are tempted to pick up our sin again. Let us loose the weight we need to both physical and spiritual.

John 6:48  I am that bread of life. Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

One Little Word

January 25, 2016

Have you ever taken one word and studied every verse in the Bible about that word? Love is a good example. In the KJV version there are over 280 verses on the word love not includining suffixes. We learn so much about God and our relationship to Him just from that one little word. 

A few examples:

1 John 4:7 & 8  Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.   He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

Ephesians 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

Opportunity for Study

January 8, 2016

What a wonderful time of food and fellowship at Evangelical College and Seminary in Plant City, Florida last evening. This gathering was to meet with teachers, students and friends of the school. Dr. Wallace Lont welcomed everyone and Dr.Gary Williams gave a wonderful overview of where we are in God’s plan for the world. 

The spring semester begins Monday, January 11. The purpose of ECS is to help believers to develop a deeper understanding of God’s Word and experience God’s transforming power in their lives.

This semester SOS Events will have a part teaching Evangelism and Decipleship on Tuesday mornings starting Tuesday, Januay 12 at 9 am. Tom and Carolyn Curtis will be teaching not only in the classroom but there will be opportunity for witnessing and follow up for each student in the class. This is a great step for SOS Events and a long time answer to prayer as God laid the desire to teach evangelism in Tom and Carolyn’s hearts many years ago.

If you live near Plant City, Lakeland, Brandon or Tampa area in Florida and want to further your education check out ECS website for more information. http://www.Evangelical-College.org. 

Please pray for ECS, the teachers and students as the spring semester begins.

2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

The Answer is in The Book

January 2, 2016

Every Christian needs to get alone with God everyday. Fifteen minutes a day can take you through the Bible in a year. It is not to late to start if you begin today. This is leap year, February has 29 days that will catch you up if you did not start on January first. (There are several yearly Bible reading plans on the web)

Some people read a Proverb a day, which is a wonderful place to seek wisdom. The Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are the books to read to know Jesus better and learn more of His sacrifice for you. Interested in prophecy? Daniel and Revelation are the books for you. Whatever you need the answer is in the Book, the Bible.

Let God speak to you through His Word and then you will be able to speak to Him through prayer. 

Psalms 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

The Bible Quote 

October 2, 2015

Adrian Rogers quote on the Bible.

“The Bible addresses one problem–sin. The Bible has one villain–Satan. The Bible has one hero–Jesus. The Bible has one purpose–to glorify God.”

2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

  

God’s Word

March 27, 2015

“If you wish to know God, you must know his Word. If you wish to perceive His power, you must see how He works by his Word. If you wish to know His purpose before it comes to pass, you can only discover it by His Word.” (C.H. Spurgeon)

Many people from all over the world have an opportunity to study God’s word on SOS Events home page. If you have not used the Bible studies by Porter Barrington, do one today. Each one will give you knowledge and more understanding of God and the Bible.

Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. Psalm 119:11

Faith

August 17, 2014

“I prayed for Faith, and thought that some day Faith would come down and strike me like lightning. But Faith did not seem to come. One day I read in the tenth chapter of Romans, ‘Now Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God’. I had closed my Bible, and prayed for Faith. I now opened my Bible, and began to study, and Faith has been growing ever since. ”
D. L. Moody

Romans 10:17
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
