Thanksgiving 2020

Reverence Micah 6:8
He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and walk humbly with your God.

Thanksgiving message for November 26, 2020
Hebrews 13:5-8 Let your character be free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you.” So that we confidently say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What shall men do to Me? Remember those who led you, who spoke the word of God to you; and considering the result of their conduct, imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, yes and forever.

There is much to be sad about in 2020. Everything has changed this year. Our jobs, family members, friends. We have heard and saw how it has effected loved ones with covid, and or died from it. The bad thing, is we did not even get see them go. If they are believers in Christ Jesus, Jesus picked them up and delivered their spirits to Himself. We can be thankful that many people have been working tirelessly to keep us safe until a vaccine is here. It does look like two or three companies are ready to release the vaccine shortly. There is one in the world today that we will never lose, Jesus Christ, if we belong to Him. Christ holds all the power in the world today, and with that, He does not exercise it. We are in the age of His grace and mercy. Christ heals the sick, comforts the poor in spirit, and this same Spirit comes from God, and His Spirit indwells us.
satan thinks that he is winning when more and more people are turning to secularism and or socialism. Both mean that someone else is going to tell them what to do and when to do it. What ever the ism is, they are only fooling the followers and satan himself. satan already knows his fate, the only question is, how many people are going to change to his way of thinking and believe in him? No matter what anyone tries, it will end in the same result, it wil never overtake Jesus Christ,, who holds all power over good people, and evil people. In the end evil winds up in the pit, where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth, where the fire is not quenched. Jesus is the only one that can bring people to safety, by believing in Him. Who are you following? Have you made your choice? (Luke 13:28) (Mark 9:44-48)

Man has already killed Him and He rose to life, from the dead, No body has the ability to over come the savior of the world, not even the evil one. When all the dust has settled in the end, satan and his evil people will be in the pit, were weeping and gnashing of teeth are. How can this happen? Jesus paid the penalty for our sin, for the wages of sin is death, Jesus died upon the cross to pay for my penalty , for my sin. Repentance for sin is required. The instant Jesus died on the cross, the large heavy curtain that hung in the Temple between the Holy of Hollies, and the Temple court, was ripped in half to signify the barrier between God and man had been removed. Now through Christ, all can come to God for the forgiveness of their sin. When this happens Jesus never says no. He accepts you as you are, unperfected, but in His eyes you are holy. This is where the real work begins, your walk with Jesus Christ is a life long adventure, sometimes it can be difficult, and rewarding at the same time. What is standing in your way? The evil one, the father of all lies. (John 8:44) He (satan) will do everything he can to get you to turn away from your commitment. The decision is yours, you have free will, but in the end we all will be held accountable for all the decisions that we have made. What keeps us from believing, opinions that you have about certain ideas and thoughts about Christ, or what you have heard you took as truth, but wasn’t. A bad experience with people in the church. It is not about other people. It is about you and Christ, once you have salvation worked out, your other thoughts about church and people can be worked out.

Take to heart what Jesus said in Luke 11:9-10 “And I say to you, Ask, and it shall be given to you; Seek, and you shall find; Knock, and it shall be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and he who seeks, finds; and to him who knocks, it shall be opened.” Are you are a seeker? Wanting to find out new information on any subject, then eventually you will seek Jesus Christ out to see if what He says is true. If you seek He says, then you will ask Him to come into your heart. Then when you knock, and really get to know Him, He will open up His scriptures up to you, then you will say, amen, thank you Jesus. How do you learn the truth about Jesus, in His Holy Bible. Jesus wants you to find Him, and He will help if you are earnest.
Jesus in His tender mercies towards you will reach out to you and lift you up, He will attend to your wounds of life and heal you. He loves you with an everlasting love, Jeremiah 31:3 that can never be shaken by any person or government. Jesus will not change His mind about you because of ones sin. When you accept Christ as savior, He accepts you and your sin. Jesus knows one cannot change over night. Sometimes it may take years for you to know what depths Christ will go to help change your life, and give you a new way of thinking. Pray to Jesus and you will be amazed at what He will do. He will heal you inside out, not outward in. Jesus starts at the heart and moves from changing and molding you and conforming you into His image in you. After you have prayed to Him, He will pray for you. If you will send me your first name I will pray for you. First name and what the prayer is for.
May you all have the best Thanksgiving that you can under these circumstances. May the God of all peace give you rest, safety, and life this Thanksgiving.
