The world we live in is in need of some desperate help. There is an SOS. There are millions of people who live in the world who are oppressed and in bondage to the enemy. The only problem is that they don't know that they are in bondage. They know that something is wrong. But they don't know what it is. They know that there is more to life than what they are getting out of it, but they don't know what's missing. They have an itch--but they don't know how or where to scratch it.
This SOS signal has reached the ears of our Father who is in Heaven. Who sent up the signal? The Watchmen who are on their posts. Those who have sent up their crys into the heavenlies concerning the shape that the world is in today (but that's an entirely different message in and of itself...) Watchmen STAY ON YOUR POSTS!
Back to the subject at hand...
The world that God created has become an abomination unto Him. God says there is INDEED an SOS down here. SOS to God means a Sea of Souls. Souls that need to hear about the saving power of the blood of Jesus. Souls that need to hear that JESUS is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Thirsty Souls that need to hear about the Living Water of God's Holy Spirit. Hurting Souls that need to hear about a Father who will never abuse or misuse them. Souls that need to hear about a Mother who will always be there for them to love them and cherish them and wipe every tear from their eyes. There is an SOS. The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few. "SOS" is lighthouse terminology. A few epistles back, God gave us a revelation about delighting ourselves in Him so that we can be those spiritual lighthouses that He created us to be. And now He is talking about the lighthouses again. Whenever God repeats Himself, He is really trying to get into our spirits what is in his heart and mind. God is really trying to get through to us the importance of being lighthouses.
Whenever there are problems on a ship or if they are having problems getting back to shore, an SOS signal is sent out. But what good does the signal do if there are no lighthouses around? Lighthouses were designed to help sea goers navigate their vessels safely back to shore. At some point in all of our lives we were considered sea goers. The devil has his way of luring us away from from the shores of safety (SOS) that is found in Christ Jesus into his very own SOS. He lures us away into an a Sea of Sin. That is what he has done to the world. He has lured many of them away into a sea of sin. They are stuck and trapped in this sea and they don't know how to get out. They feel like they are drowning, but as far as their eyes can see, there is noone to help. Noone to save. And because there aren't enough lighthouses around the chances of their survival is slim. So they just sit there and drown.
God says through the Prophet Isaiah that we are to be beacons upon the top of a mountain, and as an ensign on an hill. Beacon is another name for a lighthouse. Matthew states that We are to be the light of the world. The book of Acts says that God has sent us to be a light of the Gentiles.
If someone cried out to you for help, would there be enough light radiating through you to help them find their way home. Would there be enough light radiating through you to help them find their way into the arms of Jesus? If you aren't certain then "Houston, we have a problem!" This life is not about you. Nothing that you go through is about you. We were created in the image of God. We are to be a reflection of Him in all of our ways. Those other ships that are still out there in the sea of sin are looking for some real lighthouses to help them find their way. A pretend lighthouse won't cut it. A fake lighthouse won't cut it. In order to find safety, they need the REAL THING.
How do you become the lighthouse that you need to be in order help this Sea of Souls? Rather than retyping what has already been said previously, I am asking that you go back and read the epistle below where God talks about delighting yourself in Him. I beleive you will find an answer there.
There is a Shore of Safety (SOS) for a Sea of Souls (SOS). But the Sea of Souls (SOS) can only come out of the Sea of Sin (SOS) if there are lighthouses there to show them the way. God is the light. You are the lighthouse. Is your light guiding others to the Shore of Safety or is your
