"The S.O.S files are part of what I call THE S.O.S ADVENTURE. My concern is to help those on the field, by visits, written communications. It’s not a program or a separate ministry. It’s to help compliment what you are doing on the field. S.O.S stands for SOLD OUT ON SERVICE. " Rev. Robert (Bob) Vignola
Publication Date: 02-01-2014
Robert James Vignola “Bob” (August 13, 1950 - November 29,2016) was a caring servant and minister to God’s people. Bob was born and reared in New York where he gained a passion for music. He was especially fond of and loved the many songs produced by the legendary band, The Beatles. His attraction was not just in the music, but the uplifting effect it had on God’s people. During his teen years his quest for the answers to life led him to the Word of God. Once he found this truth it became his passion in life to share and teach it with others.
Reverend Robert James Vignola never got off the course which God set for him. He was full of life, love, and instruction, as well as giving and caring. Bob was a doulos (servant of God to God's people), a faithful father of four, a steadfast believer, and a loyal friend. As seen from the S.O.S files that he regularly emailed out to others, he had a contagious and irreplaceable humor. He was very proud of his New York Heritage (often quoting “The Brooklyn Text”) his family, and the Word of God and the man who taught it to him. His faithful stand for God’s people and the never ending agape (love of God in the renewed mind in manifestation) he poured out to others will last for all eternity.
To describe the heart and presence of Rev. Robert James Vignola would require endless pages with countless incidents by multitudes of people. However, when one reflects on his life, "The lillies of the field" and their attributes might represent his life well.
Bob Vignola, the lily of the field.
As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.
(Song of Solomon 2:2)
The lily will grow in fields, valleys, cultivated gardens and even among thorns. They spread their roots and produce trumpet shaped flowers of various colors.
A lily has a sweet and fragrant flower with a strong scent. Within the lily are grains of seeds of a golden color which are very fruitful and help beautify any place (or person) they are around. The lily can be a tall flower, yet it hangs it's bloom down and does not attempt to draw attention to itself.
The lily has medical qualities as well. They can be used to restore a lost voice (a defeated soul), help faintness (loss of strength), are good for the liver (filters out poisons), encourages with beauty (makes one feel special-pretty-delighted-encouraged-merry) and spreads it's roots so others will grow.
And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lillies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Soloman in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
All who knew him can attest to Rev Vignola’s humbleness and lowliness of mind in service to God’s people. He lived to help others grow. He was living example of 1 Corinthians 13.
Save on Your Water Bill
Dear Blessed One,
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
This moment was the beginning of THE MAGNIFICENCE OF THE AGE OF GRACE! This begins the AGE which you and I live in now. This is the moment that Our Heavenly Father was waiting for since Genesis 3:15.
So many things happened here that there is not enough time or adjectives to describe. Plus I need to eventually go and feed the dogs. HA! But one, very important thing that happened is God now has a connection with you. Not only a connection, but a PERFECT ONE!
This day, this moment shocked the adversary. One of the things he realized was the Rules of Engagement have changed. For if a man or woman understand the rights they now have, they walk on Resurrected Ground and their position is in The Heavenlies! They now have complete access to THE CREATOR OF THE HEAVENS AND EARTH. The adversary has no claim on you.
Man’s 1st responsibility is Worship. Interesting that the 1st manifestation that day was speaking in tongues. “Speaking in Tongues melts God’s Heart” (Dr. VPW, 1974). This is the FIRE, with The Renewed MIND, that turned the world upside down (really right side up). SIT is True Worship.
Whenever an athlete is not getting the results he needs, if he’s smart, he goes back to the fundamentals, the foundation of what he’s been taught. He does them every day. Speaking in tongues is the 8th manifestation listed in 1 Corinthians 12:10. The number 8 biblically means a New Beginning. Sometimes we all need a New Beginning. Every day is new day.
I LOVE YOU AND PRAY FOR YOU
THE S.O.S Files
One of the things Peter and the rest of the apostles realized that day was how much they would Save on their Water Bill!
