1  Theology / General Theology / Thanksgiving 2021 on: November 24, 2021, 05:42:12 PM
Thanksgiving 2021

For the Christian, Thanksgiving is not an annual holiday, it is a lifestyle. A spirit of thankfulness marks the person who truly loves Jesus Christ. Gratitude for His great sacrifice for us motivates our obedience, checks our sinfulness, and fans into flame our love and devotion unto the Lord.

In the United States, Thanksgiving is on the fourth Thursday of November. In Canada, it is the second Monday in October. On this holiday, a Thanksgiving meal is prepared with all the trimmings; families gather together and talk, while others watch a game or a parade filled with pilgrims, Indians and other colonial figures. Some families may even have their own yearly Thanksgiving traditions.

What comes to mind when you think of Thanksgiving? Do you picture a time of thankfulness towards God-or is it merely one of eating, partying or watching football?

Sadly, the latter is what Thanksgiving has become to most. They have forgotten why the day was established. Its meaning has slowly deteriorated, and is now almost completely lost under a cloud of media hype, sales pitches, marketing tactics and blitz commercialism.

Although not directly mentioned in Scripture, Thanksgiving Day is a holiday specifically based on biblical principles and commands. It was to be a day to spend with family and friends, honoring and thanking God for the bountiful blessings He provides.

King David wrote in the Psalms, “Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto Him with Psalms” 95:2 “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name” 100:4  And, “O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good: for His mercy endures forever…Oh that men would praise the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness” 107:1 & 8-9
The apostle Paul wrote, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God” Phil. 4:6  He also said, “Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” Eph. 5:20.

To most nations, the concept of celebrating Thanksgiving Day is viewed as a holiday that is meaningful for North Americans, although certain other nations have similar harvest festivals.

However, the act of thanksgiving towards God should be done everywhere everyday by all Christians  It is not just an American holiday, neither should it be limited to one day a year.

Before you and your family enjoy Thanksgiving dinner, or begin watching a parade or football game, be sure to take time to truly thank God in prayer and thought for the national wealth, power and prestige He has given this nation.

While there is still time, make sure that you and your family are not partaking in the nationwide, unthankful attitude. Be sure to give thanks to God in the same heartfelt, sincere manner that the pilgrims did on the first Thanksgiving in North America!!

Give All Thanksgiving to the Lord, for only He is Worthy

Amravati in Maharashtra is burning as Muslim mobs continue rioting over fake news of mosque attack in Tripura: Watch visuals
Staff
November 16 2021

Amravati in Maharashtra has been burning since November 12 (Friday) due to back-to-back stone-pelting incidents and damage to public and private property. Sandip Patil, additional police commissioner, has imposed a four-day curfew in the city under sections 144(1), (2), (3) of the CrPc to avoid any further incidents. As per the orders, only people with medical emergencies can come out of the house. Additionally, not more than five people can gather at a place.

The series of incidents started on Friday during rallies called by the Muslim organisations protesting against an alleged incident of burning down a mosque in Tripura. Such rallies took place in Nanded, Malegaon, Washim and Yayatmal other than Amravati. Notably, Tripura Police have clarified that the alleged incident that led to the rallies in Maharashtra had never occurred in Tripura. Also, these rallies took place without permission from the Police.

Building a PLO real estate empire while simultaneously begging for aid
Maurice Hirsch, Adv.  | Nov 16, 2021

Responding to the constant pleas, in the last 5 years alone, the international community donated billions of shekels/dollars/euros in aid to the Palestinian Authority. Tomorrow, at the meeting of the Ad-Hoc Liaison Committee, the PA will again beg the international community for even more donations. While the PA, headed by Mahmoud Abbas, is begging for aid, the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), also headed by Abbas and funded by the PA, is building a multi-million dollar international real estate portfolio.

An examination conducted by Palestinian Media Watch of the monthly budget performance reports published by the PA for the last decade, shows that instead of the PA purchasing properties in the name of the PA, tens of millions of shekels/dollars/euros of PA funds have been diverted to the PLO and then used to buy properties in the name of the PLO.

Tears of the girls sold by their starving families: The Taliban pledged a new future for Afghan women... but the reality is famine and poverty so extreme that parents are making an unimaginable choice
By ANTONIA HOYLE and ABDUL BASIR BINA FOR THE DAILY MAIL
PUBLISHED: 17:18 EST, 12 November 2021

Seven-year-old Zohra sits on the dusty doorstep of her family's hut in the province of Ghor, north-west Afghanistan, playing with her younger sister's hair and pulling the hood on her red fleece over her ears as bitter winds sweep their settlement.

As dusk falls, the family starts a fire to cook dinner outside. Zohra and five of her siblings — she also has a 20-day-old sister — will eat bread made out of their last remaining food: a bucket of flour that sits on the floor.

Hunger is destroying the children's health. Their father, Qadir, 35, used to work as a labourer, earning up to £2 a day, but since the Taliban took over in August, even that work has dried up.

Nearly two thirds of migrants who cross the Channel to reach the UK are originally from the Middle East, newly released figures have today revealed.

More than 61 per cent of those who make the dangerous journey across the 21 mile straight Calais to Dover are nationals from countries such as Iran and Iraq according to figures from the British Refugee Council.

The highest number of migrants arriving in small boats are from Iran, with 3,187 Iranian nationals reaching UK shores from January last year to May this year. This accounts for 26 per cent of all arrivals in small boats over this period.

Arabic-language pages promoting a notorious antisemitic text fabricated in the early 20th Century have become rife on Facebook, a new report from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) disclosed on Wednesday.

The ADL said it had discovered “dozens of large Facebook pages or groups” promoting “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” — a fabrication first published by the Okhrana, the Russian Tsarist secret police, in 1903 that lays out the plot for alleged Jewish domination of the world.

Hamas-linked CAIR accuses College Democrats of America of ‘Islamophobia’
NOV 16, 2021 5:00 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER

Democrats supporting Israel’s self-defense against the “Palestinian” jihad? That isn’t allowed. Hamas-linked CAIR is ensuring that the miscreants get back in line, and pronto. Independent thought? Pshaw! That’s only for “right-wingers.”

A Muslim advocacy group is accusing the College Democrats of America of “Islamophobia” for harassing one of their officers on social media over pro-Palestinian comments she made online as a child.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) this week called in a letter for the Democratic Party-affiliated group to open an “independent investigation” with the intent of disciplining or expelling the unnamed members who “repeatedly harassed” Rollins College senior Nourhan Mesbah on social media when she ran successfully for national vice president in August.

In the brutal, unremitting heat of a Wednesday afternoon, a scene to make you flinch for those putting their backs into creating the glittering facade that Qatar will show off when its World Cup kicks off, one year on Sunday.

A half-dozen immigrant workers are on their knees under the sun, hammering away at the task of installing stone pavements around the Lusail Stadium, the as yet unfinished venue where the World Cup final will be held.

Houthi rebels breached the compound in Yemen that housed the American Embassy, which has been closed during the country’s civil war, taking Yemeni employees of the U.S. government hostage.

According to the State Department, the U.S. Ambassador to Yemen and his main staff have been working from the American Embassy in Saudi Arabia since February 2015 due to the ongoing conflict. However, there are still some Yemeni staff that worked from home or as security guards at the compound, Bloomberg reports.

While the State Department said Thursday that a "majority" of hostages that had been detained were released, there are still embassy staff that "continue to be detained without explanation."
