Thanksgiving Day Is Soon Forever

2 Timothy 3:1-5: NKJV: But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty (scornful pride), lovers of pleasure rather than God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

 

Thanksgiving Day is the fourth Thursday in November which is a national legal holiday in the U.S. and the second Monday in October observed as a legal holiday in Canada. This holiday was officially established by the founding father in 1674. This holiday was to joyfully give thanks in gratitude to our Heavenly Father in thanksgiving for providing a fruitful and bountiful harvest. Sadly, Most of mankind has turned away from our God of Heaven and returned to lovers of pleasure. This is the greed of the devil who is a traitor and despiser of the goodness of God.

 

Genesis 1:12: And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind (wheat, rice, rye, etc.), and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. ** The last days of terrible times rapidly approach. Terrible times approach because of sin which is accelerating at a rapid pace as mankind has turned to worship their self instead of God. Those who have the goodness of our Lord God, the good of others become primary. The first sin, the greed and deceitful lies of the devil makes the world dangerous to all others by keeping what they have and not sharing.

 

When people do not fear our Lord God, they boast of what they have.  Mankind’s rampart barrier of sinful prideful boasting creates abuse to others and distances us from our Lord. The unthankful ungratefulness and the unholy ungodliness accelerate the rapid approach to the terrible times of the last days. This is rebellion of the commanded love of our Lord God.

 

John 15:12-14: This is MY commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this; than to lay down one’s life for his friends. You are MY friends if you do whatever I command you.   ** This wicked world is the character and mark of the devil that delights in hatred which is disobedience to this commandment of love. Most of the children of this wicked world of the devil surely will have no part in the soon coming Kingdom with the riches of Love, peace, joy, health and happiness forever. These riches are destined for those that keep the commandments just as our Lord God promised Abraham in Genesis 26:4-5: ….And in your seed all nations of the earth shall be blessed; Because Abraham obeyed MY voice and kept MY charge, MY commandments, MY statutes, and my laws. ** These are the commandments of God’s love. This holy and perfect love began when HE created time for mankind in Genesis 1:4:5: And God saw the light that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness HE called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day. However, time has an end and will soon begin again with the eternal love of our Lord God. At resurrection this begins eternal love or death for all souls born of woman. Our Eternal One Lord God is a friend forever for those that express love at all times

 

Proverbs 17:17: A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity (misfortune). ** The word friend is translated from the Greek word philos that denotes loved and dear. It describes explicitly the present condition of the world of the devil in the book of James.

 

James 4:4: Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself and enemy of God. ** We are warned that the world is not our friend and we commit treason in rebellion and disobedience to our Lord God. Until the soon coming return of the Messiah; corruption hatred and destruction remain. Desiring the idol of pomp and pleasure creates individual strife expanding to national and international strife and death. This pride and glory is of the world of the devil until eternal freedom reigns in the soon coming Kingdom. This is the true freedom of thanksgiving which is free to those that return to our Lord God with earnest thanksgiving.

 

Psalm 50:12-15: If I were hungry, I would not tell you; for the world is MINE, and all its fullness. Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats? Offer to God thanksgiving, and pay your vows to the Most High. Call upon ME in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify ME.

 

1 Peter 3:8: Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous; not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing. ** Verse 12: For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayers; but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil. ** When we are of one mind, we develop the mind of our Lord God of love to do HIS will in obedience and thanksgiving for HIS entire holy scriptures as a loving guide book to follow the narrow path into the soon coming Kingdom of God.

 

Psalm 100:4: Enter into HIS gates with thanksgiving, and into HIS courts with praise. Be thankful to HIM and bless HIS name. For the Lord is good; HIS mercy is everlasting, and HIS truth endures to all generations.

 

1 Peter 1:16-25: Because it is written: Be holy, for I AM holy (Leviticus 11:44). And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear (Acts 10:34: sojourning, dwelling as resident aliens); knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you who through HIM believe in God, who raised HIM from the dead and gave HIM glory, so that your faith and hope are in God. Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart……The word of God which lives and abides forever….The word of the Lord endures forever (Isaiah 40:8, also).                  **     Be blessed until we meet again!
