Which Thanksgiving was First?

Dear-God-Thank-You-For-Everything1

Did the Pilgrims start a new tradition? Or was it instituted 3,000 years ago? It was simply brought to the new world by those who were fleeing religious persecution. The Pilgrims were Bible believers who practiced what they preached. We would do well to practice the same. Today, just meditate on the glorious REAL REASON for the season! God is GOOD!

A Psalm of Thanksgiving.
Make a joyful shout to Yehovah, all you lands!
Serve Yehovah with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
Know that Yehovah, He is God;
It is He who has 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 to Him, and bless His name.
For Yehovah is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations. Psalm 100
Notice it is a command to “all you lands.” Most translations say “all the earth.” This is not only for Israel, or only Christians, but the whole earth is to shout and give thanks to Yehovah God because He is good.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for rain there.

THANKS-giving

Dry Bones Thanksgiving 2017

We pause to grateful and humble THANKS to our wonderful heavenly Father, Yehovah God. Once again we remember to thank Him for His grace and mercy. Here is a flashback to my 2011 Thanksgiving blog where I explained why the emphasis should be on the first syllable.

BE THANKFUL. Yesterday, Doreen and I stopped by to see our “spiritual daughter”, Laura, at her store downtown. We always honor her as the one who taught us how to pronounce this holiday. (She actually teaches a class in how to speak Southern.) I used to say Happy ThanksGIVING, but she emphasized the first syllable: Happy THANKSgiving. And she is right, of course. This day is about being thankful. 11-23-11

A Psalm of Thanksgiving
Make a joyful shout to Yehovah, all you lands!
Serve Yehovah with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
Know that Yehovah, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;[fn]
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For Yehovah is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.

Psalm 100

Thank you to all who read and support our ministry. You are loved. May you have a blessed THANKS-giving time this year.

I am thankful for three days of rain this week in Israel.
