Happy Thanksgiving

When Jesus went ashore, He saw a large crowd, and He felt compassion for them because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and He began to teach them many things. When it was already quite late, His disciples came to Him and said, “This place is desolate and it is already quite late; Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat. Mark 6:34-36

As we eat our Thanksgiving feast this year with your family, lets reflect on another large feast that happened. However this had different circumstances. There was about 5,000 people who came to hear Jesus teaching, and it began to get late. These people have traveled far distances with children, and are all very hungry at this point

But He answered them, “You give them something to eat!” And they said to Him, “Shall we go and spend two hundred denarii on bread and give them something to eat?” Mark 6:37

The disciples initial reaction was to send everyone away to get their own food. But notice Jesus response “You give them something to Eat!” The disciples response is “It would take a years salary to feed all these people”, but Jesus knew God would provide

And He said to them, “How many loaves do you have? Go look!” And when they found out, they said, “Five, and two fish.” And He commanded them all to sit down by groups on the green grass. They sat down in groups of hundreds and of fifties. Mark 6:38-40

Jesus question to the disciples is “What do you got?” They responded he only had 5 loaves and 2 fish, which by our human standard we would say this is impossible to feed 5 thousand people. But Jesus response is “Sit Down”!  Jesus is saying Sit down God has got this!

And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He blessed the food and broke the loaves and He kept giving them to the disciples to set before them; and He divided up the two fish among them all. They all ate and were satisfied, Mark 6:41-42

Notice Jesus took the food and blessed it! And the little bit of food they had was multiplied, God provides! God took what little food they had to offer and used it to feed the masses!

This Thanksgiving before you eat, remember to Thank God for all he has provided so he can bless what you have to fulfill your needs in Jesus Name Amen!

Happy Thanksgiving

So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. John 11:41

Before Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead , what did he do? He Thanked God the Father, for hearing his prayers. Throughout The Bible the common theme is thankfulness towards God. Even Jesus, who is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, took the time to acknowledge our Heavenly Father and give him glory for all his works

Thanksgiving is actually a religious holiday created based on The Bible. When the Protestants came to America, they replicated the Jewish festival of Sukkot. This holiday Jews celebrate Moses leading the Israelites to the Promise Land. The Protestants believed they were doing the same by coming to a new Promise Land (America) for freedom to worship Christ In 1863 Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving a nation day of “Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwells in Heaven”

As you gather together with your family and friends today, give Thanks to God, your Heavenly Father,  for everything he has blessed you with, past and present. Often times we only talk to God when we are in need or hurting. How about just telling God Thanks for your life, for your family, and for Jesus Christ.

As Christians we have so much to be Thankful for, we have the salvation of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We have the promise of a New Heaven and Earth, we have the promise of a pain free and happy eternal life in Gods Kingdom.

Give Thanks to God today for his love and mercy endures forever and ever in Jesus Name Amen!

Give Thanks

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus 1 Thessalonians 5:18

During Thanksgiving we ponder what we are thankful for, we recognize the blessings that God has given us. But the truth is we should treat every like Thanksgiving. Everyday is a gift from God, nothing should be taken for granted. If you wake up in the morning with breathe in your body, you should be thankful. However we have a tendency to become complacent. We take for granted everything that God has already given us and were not thankful anymore. We need to live each day like it’s a new day with a new beginning. Thank God everyday for your spouse, your children, your family, your job, your home. Don’t take a single blessing for granted.

Remember the victories that God has already won for you in the past, celebrate these and give glory to God. Don’t forget what your Father has already provided for you, because it pleases him to give you more. Most importantly we need to remember that there are many who suffer, your blessings may seem small to you but to others they would give anything to be in your place. Give Thank to God in all your circumstances , good or bad, because we are blessed and victorious in Jesus Name Amen

Happy Thanksgiving

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. Psalm 100:4

Will you enter today with “Thanksgiving” towards God? While we reflect on the things we are thankful for today, let’s remember to Thank our Heavenly Father! This is the day The Lord has made, let us be glad and rejoice in it (Psalm 118:24)

We have so much to be Thankful for a lot of times we overlook the small victories in our life. Let’s first remember that we are here for a purpose, God has a plan for our lives. He made us in his image, breathed life into our bodies. Be Thankful God has put you here to fulfill your destiny!

Thank God for our Lord Jesus Christ, who laid down his life for us all to save us from our sins. We can be Thankful and hopeful today because we have victory through Christ! Our Father showed his grace and mercy towards us because he loves us like a Father

Lets be Thankful for everything God provides for us including our spouses, our children, our family, our home. Everything we have we give Thanks to The Lord, so today Enter his Gates with Thanksgiving because our God is an awesome God in Jesus Name Amen

Lion of Judah

Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.” Revelation 5:5

We have Victory through Jesus Christ, he is The Lion of Judah and the Root of David that has been prophesied throughout the Bible. He is the only one worthy to open the Book of Life because we have been redeemed by his blood.

The Lion of Judah was prophesied since Genesis

You are a lion’s cub, Judah; you return from the prey, my son. Like a lion he crouches and lies down, like a lioness–who dares to rouse him? (Genesis 49:9)

The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until he to whom it belongs shall come and the obedience of the nations shall be his. (Genesis 49:10)

Who dares to wage war with the Lion of Judah? We know the Dragon (Satan) and his followers are foolish enough to and will be destroyed into the Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:10) The King of Kings will not depart from Judah, he will rule over all the nations and governments (Isaiah 9:7)

So do not weep Children of God, rejoice for your King , The Lion of Judah is victorious , fighting our battles and will sit on the throne forever in Jesus Name Amen

Thank God

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Do you give thanks to God every day for everything you have? Many times in life we feel disappointed or feel overlooked by God because we don’t recognize the blessings already in our life. Remember all good things come from God (James 1:17) so if you have anything good in your life then thank him. Whether that would be your marriage, your children, your health, or your profession in all things we need to give the glory to God (1 Corinthians 10:31)

Its important to remember these blessings or victories in our life, because when we go through trials or tribulations (James 1:12), we know our God always gives us victory as he has done in the past.  Just as with the nation of Israel , whenever they felt like God had forgotten about them, he reminded them of his blessings and victories he had already given them . Such as he freed them slavery (Exodus 6:6), parted the Red Sea (Exodus 14:21) and delivered them bread from heaven (Exodus 16:4)

So whatever battle or struggle you are faced against, remind your enemy Satan about your victories God has already delivered you (Psalm 77:11) and remind Satan of his future (Revelation 20:10) Because we have victory through Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:57)who has already overcome the world. (John 16:33) Give Thanks to God in Jesus Name Amen

Thank God

I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus 1 Corinthians 1:4

Do you remember to Thank God for everything he has already blessed you with? Many times people us prayer as a life line, but prayer should be a constant communication with God. That includes thanking him for all he has done and given you.

For in him you have been enriched in every way–with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge 1 Corinthians 1:5

All blessing come from God, there are no coincidences or random occurrences. True knowledge and wisdom can only be acquired by God thru the Holy Spirit, pray for this wisdom and it will be granted to you.

God thus confirming our testimony about Christ among you. Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. 1 Corinthians 1:6-7

While we eagerly await the return of Jesus, some may feel helpless or hopeless. But know that God has equipped us with the knowledge and strength to endure thru the Holy Spirit.

He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. 1 Corinthians 1:8-9
Thru Jesus we have been redeemed and are worthy to stand before our Creator. God loved us all enough to sacrifice his son for our atonement. Its only by the blood of Jesus we are worthy.

Have you giving Thanks today to God for all he has giving you? Do you let him know how Thankful you are? If your not Thankful for what he has giving you already, why would you expect him to give you anything more? Praise him and Thank him in Jesus name Amen

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift. 2 Corinthians 9:15
What are you thankful for today? Your family? Your health? Your turkey? These are all great gifts from God. But let also remember to be thankful for the greatest gift God gave us all Jesus
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John3:16)
Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice for all of us, we need to always remember this and give thanks daily. Without him there would be no hope for any of us.
As it says in Ephesians 1:16 “Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;” Never stop giving thanks and praise to our Messiah for his love endures forever. Be thankful every day for everything you have been giving and he provided.
Often during the holidays we get stressed out, family disputes, holiday traveling, ect. Let’s remember to focus on the blessing of the moment.
The fact you have a family to share Thanksgiving with is a blessing, let’s Thank God. The fact you have food to feed your family is a blessing. Thank God. You actually have a vehicle to travel, instead of complaining about gas prices, Thank God
I think Paul said it best in Philippians 4:11 “I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.” Learn to be Thankful and content with the life God has giving you.
So don’t waste this Thanksgiving being stressed out or disputing with you family, rejoice in God and be Thankful for all you have been giving including the love of Jesus Christ. Amen
