Black Friday and the American Godless Holiday Season









Well, here we go kid-do’s… After the majority of Americans concluded THEIR “godless” Thanksgiving without Almighty God and ALL the realities of Who He is, which is dictated by His HOLY WORD it is “Black Friday”. America’s Thanksgiving and Holiday season now consists of thanking THEIR god’s of self narcissism, human efforts and personal ambitions, while of course eating, drinking and watching football. My friends don’t get me wrong… there is absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying a fine diner with your loved ones, eating good food, stuffing yourself, watching football, exchanging gifts, rejoicing over the work of you hands and even trying to save a few bucks on material things when its done with thanksgiving to Almighty God (1 Cor. 10:31), but the whole mood now in this country at this time of the year is to serve self and in some places it is very subtle and hard to see.

We as a nation have rejected Almighty God’s SAVING message to us and to the world that Almighty God sent His Son to deliver us from our sins.

Godless living affects the majority of Americans today. We as a nation have rejected Almighty God’s SAVING message to us and to the world that Almighty God sent His Son to deliver us from our sins (John 3:16-17).

This “Christmas” message is now drowned out by worldly self interest and personal materialism. Indeed, Satan has won a great victory in replacing the realities of one’s ETERNAL needs for temporal and fading wants (1 John 2:15-17). Whether one is a conservative, moderate, liberal or a progressive commie or whether one is of the lazy poor, the true poor, the middle class, the rich or the filthy rich, the bottom line and common denominator is self generated interest which excludes our Creator and our true ETERNAL needs (Matt. 15:7-9, Rom.1:18-32, 2 Tim 3:2).

Anyone who lives their existence here in time that EXCLUDES Almighty God our Creator, His saving grace and Savior, His Word and sound biblical doctrine is one of utter futility, vanity and is self centered.

What do I mean by serving self? I am sure for many reading this assessment might think I have gone way over the top on this. Well hear me out… The “bottom line” of what I am trying to state is that ANY life (i.e., one’s brief existence here in time), whether conservative, moderate, liberal or a progressive commie, whether one is of the lazy poor, the true poor, the middle class, the rich or the filthy rich that lives out their existence here in time that EXCLUDES Almighty God our Creator, His saving grace and Savior, His Word and sound biblical doctrine is one of utter futility, vanity and is self centered (Eccl., Mark 24:35-39, Rom. 1:20-22). It is the wide road which leads to damnation and ETERNAL ruin and it is named the “do as thou wilt” highway (Matt. 7:13-14, Rev. 20:11-15). This road ends with its travelers doing a Thelma and Louise into ETERNAL damnation and ruin. It would be an awesome thing to interview many of life’s travelers who have taken this narcissistic highway to ruin. I am sure that they would testify in the end that their brief godless existence was NOT worth the ETERNAL consequences (Luke 16:19-31, John 3:16-17, Rev. 20:11-15).

This road ends with its travelers doing a Thelma and Louise into ETERNAL damnation and ruin!


Nothing in this brief fallen world can EVER fill the ETERNAL void of humanity for we were designed to house our ETERNAL Creator (Eccl. 3:11, Rom. 11:33). Go ahead my friend, STUFF IT with all your heart desires (virtuous or vice); Sex, drugs, wine, women, song, IPods, flat screens, new cars, houses, lands and gold, purpose, adventure, glory, whatever; indulge my friend until you possess the WHOLE ENTIRE world (Matt.16:26)! It will NEVER satisfy and in the end you will be as Solomon of old and profess that "ALL is vanity" (Eccl.1:1-5)! You will end up as the rich fool who was building barns only to lose it all in the end (Luke 12:15-23).

"Jesus stated, I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly" (John 10:10).

God’s Word states; "But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him" (1 Cor. 2:9).

It is your Creator that loves you with an EVERLASTING love and has ONLY glorious things for you FOREVERMORE (1 Cor. 2:9, Rev. 21, 22:1-5). That is why you were created. To know God and to enjoy Him FOREVER! Oh the FOOL who would rather seek vain temporal worldly glory and earthly possessions in a narcissistic delusional reality (Luke 12:20, James 4:14, 5:1-5, Rev. 20:11-15).

As we head into another narcissistic godless Christ rejecting “holiday season” may you be sure that you personally know the very One who left Heaven’s glory and put on humanity so He might die on the cross to pay for the sins of the world (John 1:14, 3:16-17, Phil.2:5-10, Heb.10:4-14). That is what our existence (born - die) here is all about!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Happy Thanksgiving from The Ignorant Fishermen Blog


Beloved, Greetings in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ! Who is the TRUE source for ALL Heavenly blessings here on earth and in Heaven above (Eph. 1:3)!

As we celebrate this time of Thanksgiving we are very mindful of many things. We are thankful for our loved ones, a measure of health and a sound mind. We are thankful for the earthly blessings and liberties that we possess as Americans. We are thankful for those who have shed their blood on our nation's behalf which have preserved our freedoms and liberties. We are thankful for the vision and labor of our Founding Fathers which steadfast sought to provide its posterity with a nation and constitution that we may enjoy our unalienable rights as human beings. We are thankful to those who labor for the Lord on our behalf, who challenge us and encourage us in the ETERNAL truths and promises of Almighty God.

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you! (1 Thess. 5:18).

But most of all we are thankful for Almighty God our Father for so loving us that He sent His only begotten Son on our behalf (John 3:16-17), that we may be redeemed, forgiven, received, adopted and made righteous in the Person and work of Jesus Christ (Rom. 10:4, 1 Cor. 1:30).

We are truly thankful that we are still able to worship Almighty God in spirit and truth here in America and that we still have a measure of time left to get out His saving message to a dying and condemned world. We rejoice that Christ is coming again very soon and that this fallen world is NOT our home. We have a glorious future forevermore with our Savior and Lord in perfect RIGHTEOUSNESS in Almighty God's ETERNAL day (1 Cor. 2:9, Rev. 22:5).

May this Thanksgiving be a great blessing to you all! We indeed have much to be thankful for (Phil. 4:4)!

Beloved, The Kingdom of Heaven is truly at hand!

Governor Bradford's First Thanksgiving Proclamation!














Governor Bradford of Massachusetts made this first Thanksgiving Proclamation three years after the Pilgrims settled at Plymouth:

"Inasmuch as the great Father has given us this year an abundant harvest of Indian corn, wheat, peas, beans, squashes, and garden vegetables, and has made the forests to abound with game and the sea with fish and clams, and inasmuch as He has protected us from the ravages of the savages, has spared us from pestilence and disease, has granted us freedom to worship God according to the dictates of our own conscience.

.
In everything give thanks; for this is the will of  God in Christ Jesus concerning you! 1 Thes. 5:18

Now I, your magistrate, do proclaim that all ye Pilgrims, with your wives and ye little ones, do gather at ye meeting house, on ye hill, between the hours of 9 and 12 in the daytime, on Thursday, November 29th, of the year of our Lord one thousand six hundred and twenty three and the third year since ye Pilgrims landed on ye Pilgrim Rock, there to listen to ye pastor and render thanksgiving to ye Almighty God for all His blessings."

William Bradford
Ye Governor of Ye Colony

George Washington's 1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me to "recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:"
. 
Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enable to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand, at the city of New York, the 3d day of October, A.D. 1789.

Only a Believing Remnant in America that is Still Truly Thankful to Almighty God!

My dear friends, in light of our nation's unthankfulness to Almighty God, godlessness, abounding moral relativistic thinking, and secularism; there is still a remnant (Isa. 1:4-9) throughout this nation today that still chooses to follow Almighty God and know His Son as their personal Savior as the Holy Scriptures so clearly teaches (John 1:12). This remnant is truly thankful daily for all that Almighty God has provided for them (in time and in ETERNITY) and they are found throughout all the social classes today in America (1 Cor. 10:31).

  Throughout this nation today there is a remnant that still chooses to follow Almighty God and know His Son as their personal Savior as the Holy Scriptures so simply teaches.

The risen Christ's light shines forth through them and they shine as lights in an ever-growing darker world, a world and a system which despises, abhors and hates ETERNAL light and RIGHTEOUSNESS more and more every day (Isa. 58:8, Prov. 4:18, Matt. 5:15-15, John 8:12, Eph. 5:8, 1 Thess. 5:5, Rev. 21:21-23). Tragically, these little lights today are America's outcasts, rejected and scoffed at by the political parties of today, Hollywood, the media, social media and by millions of this godless nation. UNTHANKFULNESS has engulfed our nation and it has taken its toll on our society and culture. Even is such a day and hour we have much my beloved to be thankful for to Almighty God, for His greatest promises are yet to be (1 John 3:1-3, Rev. 21-22:1-5)! Thanksgiving Day is the norm for the child of Almighty God who desires His perfect will for their lives and fully appreciates the Savior’s ETERNAL LOVE (Col. 3:16, Phil. 4:4, 1 Thes. 5:18).

 Thanksgiving Day is the norm for the child of Almighty God who desires His perfect will for their lives and fully appreciates the Savior’s ETERNAL LOVE.
.
Paul warned us what would be the climate of the Last Days and we are fully there as a nation and as a world.

As Paul stated;
“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, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth." (2 Tim. 3:1-7)
.
In light of our day, may God's people always be thankful and understanding that this fallen world is not our home. That wondrous TRUTH in its self should cause us to rejoice greatly and to be ALWAYS thankful to our Heavenly Father!
.
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
