Why Thanksgiving?

In the light of what is, what is not, what is going to be, how then shall we proceed? At the very least in light of life’s realities, be thankful! God is good no matter what or why or who and God’s saving grace is sufficient for you.

Thanksgiving Deserves the Right Attitude
.
A right attitude towards God is needed, not a attitude of indifference and rejection as in Romans 1:21 – “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were [they] THANKFUL; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.” “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, UNTHANKFUL, unholy (2 Timothy 3:1-2).” “O GIVE THANKS unto the LORD; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever. Let them now that fear the LORD say, that his mercy endureth for ever” (Psalm 118:1,4). And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation (Luke 1:50).

Thanksgiving Involves the Right Action
.
The right action is necessary. “O GIVE THANKS unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever” (Psalm 107:1). Thank Almighty God for His mercy, for it is with a thankful heart that you can receive the priceless gift of God’s son. “But as many as RECEIVED Him, to them gave he power [the right] to become the sons [children] of God, even to them that believe on His Name” (John 1:12). “And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, BELIEVE on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be SAVED, and thy house” (Acts 16:30-31). “THANKS be unto God for his unspeakable gift” (2 Cor. 9:15).

Thanksgiving Involves the Right Approach

A genuine heart attitude of thanksGIVING ought to result in a life of thanksLIVING: “SERVE the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates WITH THANKSGIVING, and into his courts with praise: BE THANKFUL unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations” (Psalm 100:2-5).

Are you able to thank the Lord Jesus Christ for His saving presence in your life? Why not receive Him now as your personal Savior because of His personal concern for you!

Are You a TRUE Christian?

My friend, in Heaven there are NO “good” people but ONLY those who have been redeemed by the Lamb of Almighty God (Rev.21, 22:1-5). A TRUE Christian today or believer is one who truly recognizes that they have ZERO of the required PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS to stand before a HOLY, PERFECT and RIGHTEOUS God (Luke 18:13, Rom. 7:25-26) and have placed their complete trust in the Person and Work of Almighty God the Son; the Lord Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17, Rom. 10:2-4).

My dear friend, if you are one of these moral relativist or RIGHTEOUS relativists who is deceiving themselves in to believing that you are “good enough” to inherit ETERNAL LIFE and ETERNAL pardon for your countless transgressions (heart, soul and mind) against the PERFECT LAW of Almighty God; then may you abandon your delusion and come to grips with ETERNAL REALITY (Rom. 10:2-4). Why hide in a delusion. ALMIGHTY God LOVES you and sent His Son to DIE and be your PROPITIATION for YOU that you may live FOREVER with HIM in ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS bliss and harmony (John 3:16-17, 1 Cor. 2:9, Rev. 21, 22:1-5).
.
My dear friend I personally do not know how to say anything more wonderful than that!

Delusion leads to confusion and then deception leads to rejection, which in the end brings about ETERNAL damnation. My dear friend may you choose REPENTANCE, LIFE and REALITY with the Savior; for you will NEVER be the same again!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
