    The Meaning of Thanksgiving

    Most people think of Thanksgiving as a uniquely United States holiday celebrating the safe 66-month passage of the Pilgrims from Europe to the New World, and their safely weathering the hardships of establishing the first colony. However, Thanksgiving is also celebrated for the preceding year’s harvest in Canada, Brazil, Granada, St. Lucia and Liberia. Germany and Japan have similar holidays. In the United States, the earliest recorded Thanksgiving celebrations were by the Pilgrims and Puritans in 1619 and in Virginia in 1621. Governor Bradford, Va., held a Thanksgiving celebration and feast in 1625, but it wasn’t a regular event until the late 1660s. President Lincoln set Thanksgiving’s date to the…

    How to Cope with COVID

    COVID has changed the way everyone in the world lives. We will never change back to the prepandamic state, so we have to adapt ourselves to a little different lifestyle. We can’t demonstrate against the virus because it doesn’t understand us, and it wouldn’t care if it did. And, demonstrating and rioting against the government that’s doing it’s best to keep the public safe is, as Spock would say, not logical. Pretending that the virus isn’t dangerous makes as much sense as pretending that you can cross a busy street by ignoring the traffic.. We will get back to a semi-normal lifestyle eventually. No one worries about the black plague…

    Your Life Matters!

    “Black lives matter” is a sentence you’ve heard a lot lately in the wake of numerous police shootings. And, it’s true. I don’t want to take away from that. Black lives matter just as much as anyone else’s life matters, just as much as your life matters. The sentence is secular though. It pertains to human life in time and space. Time and space belong to physical life and objects in the universe. In the spirit world there is no time and space. God is a spirit apart from about 33 years that He also spent on earth in the form of Jesus. You hear a lot about the Bible’s…

    Our Need for Prayer

    Prayer, as I mentioned last week, is talking with God not to or at Him as some people think. Prayer is having a two-way conversation with God. We don’t actually hear His voice in our heads, as with Old Testament prophets, but we do get answers. When we pray, God is faithful in answering if we are true Christians asking in the right manner, which I’ll get to below. In the beginning Adam and Eve spoke to God in conversations with Him. And, Moses spoke with God at the burning bush and throughout his ordeal with the Pharaoh. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8 ). He…

    How to Know What Christ Wants From You, Part 2

    Last week’s blog gave an overview of how to know what God want you to do for Him, what’s your mission here on earth. It’also important to know what isn’t of God., because distractions exist that will mislead you so that you’re not working on what God has assigned you to do. The first distraction is personal. It’s easy to convince yourself that something you really like to do is your purpose here on earth. That’s most likely true of your vocation. What you do for a living is mostly your decision. It should be something that you have a natural ability for doing and like to do. Then it…

    How to Find God’s Will for Your Life

    I’ve been saying since the beginning of this blog that you need to follow God’s will for your life rather than your own will. But I haven’t addressed the issue of how to figure out what His will is for you. I’m going to address that issue this week and next. This week is only a short overview because I’ve had a stressful week with a lot of things needing my attention. Next week will be a more in depth study of working with God. Here are the pointers for this week: Pray constantly: This is important. Prayer isn’t just talking to God, It’s talking with God. And, it’s not…

    A Warning

    If My people,who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. -2Chronicles 7:14 Sin is rampant in the United States and other countries today. It’s now claimed that we live in a “post-Christian” world, and certainly the US acts that way. We embrace humanism, glorify homosexuality, murder the unborn, elevate whites above other races, even by our President. Our founders wrote our Constitution based on God’s principles as He expressed them to us in the Bible. He even came to us as…

    National Unity

    The United Sates is suffering from several calamities at this time. The pandemic is one, the forest fires are another, and a record number of storms are pounding the Southeastern states. This amount of natural disaster hasn’t plagued this nation in it’s history. And, it’s not getting much better. The weather is cooling off as Fall starts, and now we may well have another round of COVID-19 and the flu on top of that. Many health professionals are urging people to get flu shots now. On top of the natural plagues, the US is becoming divided into two major camps, and a few minor ones, President Trump is perhaps the…

    Where is God?

    Most people think that God is in heaven, which is out in space someplace, or in any case up above us somehow. Certainly, Bible passages talk about God or the Father coming down from heaven, and Jesus came from and returned to heaven., The Holy spirit comes from there. For a long time I thought the same thing. And, this is a problem with witnessing because unsaved people operate on the out of sight, out of mind principal. People tend to ignore, or at least not take seriously, someone or something that is far away from them. Therefore they act differently than they do when someone is near to them.…
