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.

Christmas Tree Symbol of Christmas

December 10, 2018

It wasn’t until about the nineteenth century that we find Christianity absorbing the bright, cheery symbolism of the Christmas tree.  The Christians had long held the fir as a symbol of the Tree of Life.  Early Christians knew their symbolism well, as they added candles and apples to their Christmas firs.  These candles represented the light of Christ.  The apples symbolized knowledge which spawned man’s original sin according to Christian belief.  Here we see the light of Christ absolving the “fall of man” within the immortal symbol of the Christmas tree.

Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

A Special Note

November 24, 2018

This note is from Carolyn Curtis’ great granddaughter, 8 years old. What a blessing to have generations of Godly children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. To know that the times of family gatherings will not end here on earth, but will be together in Heaven for eternity. The key is to have 2 Birthdays. Physical and Spiritual.

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

The Way

November 12, 2018

On Saturday there were 5 decisions at an event in Zephryhills, Florida. God continues to bless SOS Events and the workers for the faithfulness getting out to witness at events. People are searching for the answers on how to get to Heaven. How can they know without someone to tell them the truth? Acceptance of Jesus death, burial and resurrection is the only way to get there.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Nancy McLean

October 23, 2018

Nancy McLean went home to be with her Lord yesterday November, 22. She was a member of SOS Events Senior Servants for many years. She rarely missed a meeting and was always willing to drive others to come and work getting out the Life Saver News. SOS Events Ministry was one of the many ways she served the Lord and she always told others of what a great way to spread the Gospel. A wonderful witness for the Lord at events and personally. Nancy handed out “3 Things God Can Not Do” tract wherever and whenever she could. Nancy was a wonderful Christian and great friend. She will be missed.

Psalms 116:15 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.

Matthew 25:23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Is Church the Way?

July 15, 2018

Go to church today to worship, but Jesus is the only way to get to Heaven.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Packing for Your Trip to Heaven

June 28, 2018

Just as we pack for a trip, there are things we need to “pack” on our journey toward Heaven. The first and most important is Salvation. Being saved is our ticket, and without it we cannot enter. Prayer, Faith, Love Joy, Patience, Goodness, Truth, Service, Witnessing and Forgiveness. (you may think of a few more) are needed for our trip. In this picture is a cat which cannot be taken and on our life’s journey we need to leave out things also, Hate, Lying, Gossip, Pride and Disobedience are a few. As you prepare for Heaven, what are you “packing” to be ready?

1 Peter 1:9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

Traveling

May 26, 2018

There is a Christian song, ” This World is Not My Home, I’m just passing through.” We as Christians are traveling through life in this world. Sometime we have joys, hardships and challenges. Just like traveling for vacation, business or family occasions, trips can have ups and downs. Once our trip is over and we return home we are happy that our travels are over. The same holds true on our journey toward heaven. What a joy that will be when we finally reach our Heavenly home. So as we travel through life keep our destination in mind. Joy awaits us in Heaven.

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.

Preparation for Celebration

May 17, 2018

Tonight, some of the volunteers who worked at Strawberry Festival but could not come to the luncheon, will come to the SOS Events property to have dinner (supper) as a thank you for their hard work. It takes preparation to get ready for a meal. Can you imagine the preparation in Heaven for us, when we who are saved will attend the marriage supper of the Lamb (Jesus). He said He was going to prepare a place for us and part of that preparation is a supper to celebrate. What things we as Christians have to look forward to.

Revelation 19:9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

Traveling

May 1, 2018

Outside of the USA, we find difficulties because of language, culture, weather difference and living accommodations. The area may be beautiful, the people great, and the food delicious, but it is not our home, we are just visiting. When we come back to our home we are happy because there is no place like home. That is how we as Christians should view our time here on earth. There may be difficulties, but we have Blessings also. We are just passing through. Someday we will reach our heavenly home and we will be joyful and glad to reach our final destination. To spend eternity with Jesus will be coming home.

John 14:2-3 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. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
