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.

Billy Graham Quote

February 23, 2018

“The moment we take our last breath on earth, we take our first in heaven.”

Billy Graham went home to meet his Savior this week and he will be missed. He was instrumental in thousands of people coming to the Lord.

2 Corinthians 5:8

We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

Lost and Found

December 29, 2017

Have you ever lost something special to you and frantically searched for it until it was found? Maybe your car keys and you cannot go anywhere or your child’s favorite toy and he will not go to sleep without it. Jesus spoke many times in parables about things that were lost and found. He was getting us to understand that until we accept Him as our Savior we are lost and have no hope of Heaven. Jesus came to find you and me and payed the price with His own life on the cross and rose again that we might be saved. Are you lost or found?

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

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.

People Watching

December 5, 2017

Do you like to watch people. Some are tall, others short, some thin others heavy. We see the mothers with small children to the elderly which have a hard time getting around. People of all colors, from the very fair skin to the darkest golden brown. Some dress in expensive clothing while others are tattered, and some wear hardly any clothes at all. What a variety of people on the earth and God gave life to them all. However, that He gave them life at birth does not mean they will live with Him in Heaven for all eternity. To get to Heaven no matter what their status on earth they (and you) must be born again.

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.

Home Sweet Home

August 9, 2017

Have you ever been away from home for awhile. Vacation, business trip or travel. Then it is time to go “home”. What great anticipation. You may live in a mansion or a small cottage, but whatever the property it is still home. As Christians we should have the same love and anticipation for our heavenly home, Heaven. Waiting for us there is Jesus, our loved ones who have gone on before us, and wonders we cannot even imagine. Jesus said:

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.
