Power

August 13, 2019

Lightning strikes during a storm and the power from that causes the power to go out in our home. Two kinds of power. The huge powerful lightning bolt and the power of electricity the gives light in our home but can be interrupted by a storm.

What kind of power do you have in your life? Huge power that God gives us through the Holy Spirit or do you do things in your own power that can be interrupted by circumstances or fear? We have access to the great power God promises. Do you use it to be a witness for Him?

Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Can’t Pray

July 19, 2019

Sometimes our hearts are heavy or our minds are so clouded with cares of our life that we don’t know how to pray. We do have the Holy Spirit who then prays through us and for us. Try in those times to find one thing to be thankful for and tell Jesus thank you for that. Remember, He knows about the situation and can help in any circumstance.

Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

Power

February 5, 2019

Electricity is so important to our way of living that if the power goes out we have a problem functioning. The SOS Events office was closed yesterday and today because of electrical problems that needed to be resolved. The whole property including 2 offices, workshop and Curtis home was without electricity. No work could be done so nothing was accomplished.

As Christians we have a source of Power in our lives to get things done. That Power is the Holy Spirit. Sometimes, the power gets shut off because of sin, indifference or disobedience. Spiritually, nothing gets done. No souls are won because we don’t witness, prayers are not answered because we don’t pray and the worst thing,we have no fellowship with our Savior, Jesus. If our Power is damaged, let’s get it repaired. Repent and renew our relationship with the Lord. Ask His forgiveness. He is waiting to restore the Power in our lives.

Romans 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Night Prayer

January 7, 2019

Have you ever woke up in the middle of the night, with someone on your heart that you need to pray for? It is just a thought about a person that you may not have thought of in a long time. Maybe it is someone you don’t even know like a person in the news, a political figure or someone on the prayer list from church. Do not ignore that feeling. It is the Holy Spirit prompting you to pray. That person may be going through a struggle, mentally, physically or spiritually. God speaks to us in a still small voice, especially in the night out of a sound sleep and He is using you to pray for someone who needs prayer at that moment.

Ephesians 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Simeon

December 26, 2018

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

The Bible says tha Joseph and Mary marveled at what Simeon had said.

Prayer is the Key

October 30, 2018

24 decisions for Christ at Eastmont Baptist Church’s Trunk or Treat! Thank you SOS volunteers and many others for praying and sharing. Prayer and dependence on the Holy Sprit is the key to winning people to the Lord at events. In October 517 decisions have been reported to the SOS Events home office. Praise the Lord.

Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

How to Witness

June 27, 2018

Thank you Patty for sharing this quote by D. L. Moody. SOS Events trains people how to be soul winners, but without the Holy Spirit guiding and filling us, our witnessing will not be effective. When we witness at an event or one on one, it is essential that we are relying on the Holy Spirit to convict and bring the person to understand and trust Jesus to be their Savior. Pray that every one of our SOS Events volunteers are filled with the Spirit and if you want to be an soul winner, ask God to fill you with the Holy Spirit.

Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Wednesday Mornings

June 21, 2018

Wednesday Mornings have once again been blessed. This week 15 precious people were saved at the Plant City Flea Market. Every week God blesses the efforts of SOS Events soul winners who go to the market before sunrise to set up a booth and get ready to talk to people about Jesus. When we go, the Holy Spirit works in the hearts of men and women, boys and girls to hear the gospel. Praise the Lord.

Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
