Fear and Greed!

August 31, 2019

I remember when hurricanes were fun. No one panicked. No one hoarded. We got our surfboards out ready to hit the beach. If the power went out it was exciting because we got to light candles throughout the house and eat ice cream for breakfast. If you were lucky, you got school off for a day. What happened? I went to the store yesterday to grab some dog treats and dinner and it was like the apocalypse. The parking lot was a derby. No shopping carts. There was dry dogfood spilled in the aisles like there was a fight over the last bag of Fido’s fave brand or something. 😂

I got my stuff and got outta there. Now I need to go to the store today because we ran out of coffee creamer.😭 Please pray for us here in Florida. Because of the people. They are what I’m most frightened of. 😰😉

Sent by a friend on Facebook. So true. What happened? Fear and greed. Both are against what the Bible teaches.

2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Proverbs 21:26 He coveteth greedily all the day long: but the righteous giveth and spareth not.

Gabriel, Angel Sent From God

December 16, 2017

Luke 1:19 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.

Luke 1:26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

Only two angels are mentioned by name in the New Testament. Gabriel and Michael. Gabriel was an archangel who was a messenger sent by God to deliver news to Zacariah and then later to Mary. Gabriel is also mentioned in the book of Daniel in the Old Testament. Angels had an important role in the birth of the Lord Jesus. Their presence brought fear into the hearts of the people they appeared to according to scripture.

We tend to forget that people like Zacariah, Mary and Joseph were just ordinary people that God used in extraordinary circumstances. If Gabriel appeared to us today we too would be afraid. As Christians we can look forward to the time when we will see angels in Heaven. What a wonderful future we have and there will be no fear, only wonder and beauty as we behold Heaven and meet Jesus face to face.

Friday the 13th

October 13, 2017

Blessed or bewitched? Some people are superstitious and believe that if the 13th day falls on Friday it is “unlucky”. This fear dates back to hundreds of years before Christ. The Bible tells us that everyday is blessed by God and we as Christians must trust Him. So today, Friday the 13th, praise the Lord for His goodness and blessings that He has given you. Go out today looking for something good to happen to you.

Psalms 145:2 Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.

Our Pilot

May 18, 2017

Some people have fears. Snakes, the dark, bridges and many more. Flying can be very frightening to some people. Recently while on a flight the plane went through severe tubulence. Lightning, rain, bumpy air pockets. The plane actually dropped several feet which had many passengers crying and a few actually screamed. Then the pilot took the plane above the clouds where the sun was shinning and looking out the window the clouds looked white, fluffy and beautiful. The plane landed safety. It reminds me of our Pilot in life, the Lord Jesus Christ. He takes us through the storms of life and brings us the beautiful blessings in spite of the storm. We have nothing to fear if we put our trust in Him.

Psalms 37:5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

Storms of Life

April 6, 2017

Thunder and lightning caused many people to wake from a sound sleep today. Children, pets and even some adults woke up with fear. There are many things in our storms of life, sickness, death, divorce and other things that cause fear. Just like the storm passed today so there are things we can do to help us get past the storms in our life. Renew you faith in God. Remember the past and the things He already has carried you through. Read your Bible everyday and maybe several times a day. And pray. This storm will pass. God will carry you through. Joy comes in the morning.

Psalms 30:5 ……weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Do You Feel Safe?

January 7, 2017

Do you feel safe? Everyday there is some news of tragedy. Yesterday, in Florida there was a shooting in the Ft. Lauderdale airport when travelers went to pick up their luggage from a flight they were on. Five deaths and many injuries. Traffic accidents, drive by shootings, robberies and many more dangers are heard about everyday.

Should we as Christians allow fear to rule our lives. NO!! The Bible tells us in both the Old and New Testament to “fear not” over 100 times. God wants us to put our trust in Him. Do bad things happen to good people? Absolutely, but God promises to bring us through all circumstances. Safety is of the Lord.

Psalms 118:6 The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?

Psalms 4:8 I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.

Peace Be Still

June 6, 2016

Mark 4:39And he (Jesus) arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

Residents of Florida and the East Coast are preparing for a tropical storm named Colin. June 1st, hurricane season starts. Many people fear these storms and it is right to take precautions, however, as Christians we know that the Lord is in control.

We also have “storms” in our lives for which we have no control, but He is the only One who can control every situation with those words, “Peace be still.” Whatever the storm is for you today or in the future if it be physical, mental or spiritual turn to Jesus to calm your fears and bring peace to your heart.

Jesus Loves Me

September 1, 2015

Last evening Tom Curtis received a phone call from a Christian friend who is facing some very serious life threatening health problems. This friend became very fearful and almost was in the state of panic. Our friend lives 800 miles away in a different state.

Tom talked to him, prayed with him, and read some scripture to him. Finally,Tom and Carolyn started to sing “Jesus loves me this I know.”

That little children’s song calmed the heart of our Christian friend. He was able to drive to a friends home so he would not be alone. Tom stayed on the phone with him until we were sure he had gotten to a safe place.

Jesus loves me! This I know,

For the Bible tells me so;

Little ones to Him belong;

They are weak, but He is strong.

Refrain:

Yes, Jesus loves me!

Yes, Jesus loves me!

Yes, Jesus loves me!

The Bible tells me so.

Jesus loves me! This I know,

As He loved so long ago,

Taking children on His knee,

Saying, “Let them come to Me.”

Jesus loves me still today,

Walking with me on my way,

Wanting as a friend to give

Light and love to all who live.

Jesus loves me! He who died

Heaven’s gate to open wide;

He will wash away my sin,

Let His little child come in.

Jesus loves me! He will stay

Close beside me all the way;

Thou hast bled and died for me,

I will henceforth live for Thee.

Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Witness for JESUS 

March 22, 2015

JESUS came into the world to die on the cross so people could be saved from the penalty of their sins. His love for us is beyond our comprehension. 

His will for those of us who are saved is to tell others of His great love and give them the plan of salvation. Many Christians do not witness. Fear is probably the biggest reason they do not tell others. SOS Events simple method the “3 Things God CanNot Do” helps to take away fear and excuses. SOS has tools, training, tracts and tactics to help anyone become a witness for Christ. All it takes is an email: info@sosevents.org or a phone call 813-784-8242 if you need help to become a soul winner.


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