Happy Thanksgiving to God America, Here is Your History!

avatar

Statistically speaking, American Millennials’ (ages 18-34) worst subject is history. Many know very little about our European ancestors, the Pilgrims, to whom the first Thanksgiving is attributed. These were the first Christian families to settle on the east coast of America. 

Contrary to modern-day teaching, the main purpose the Pilgrims came to America was NOT religious freedom. They had already gained religious freedom twelve years earlier, in 1608, when they fled England for Holland to escape the extreme persecution from a tyrannical King James I. They told us specifically why they decided to come to America in the Mayflower Compact – the first American government document: “…for the glory of God and advancement of the Christian faith…”

The Pilgrims came to America to set up an entire nation for the purpose of glorifying God and advancing the Christian faith.  This radical statement UNITED government with a responsibility to God and left a strategy for future generations to follow that has arguably brought about more liberty, prosperity, and joy to our nation than any other political philosophy in any other country in the history of the world! 

The first national Thanksgiving occurred in 1789. According to the Congressional Record for September 25, immediately after approving the Bill of Rights, Mr. Elias Boudinot said he could not think of letting the congressional session end without offering an opportunity to all the citizens of America to render their sincere thanks to Almighty God for the many blessings He had poured down upon them.

The resolution was delivered to President George Washington, who heartily concurred with the congressional request, declaring:

“Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor. . . . Now, therefore, I do appoint Thursday, the 26th day of November 1789 . . . that we may all unite to render unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection.”

For years after, Americans were delivered from countless perils, received many victories and blessings, prospered beyond any country, and soon everyone envied the American Dream that God had given to persevering Americans.

America started becoming self-sufficient, we increased in knowledge, built powerful bombs, and decided we had arrived; we had no problems to overcome.  We became like spoiled children, it was all about us, and if we weren’t blessed in the way we wanted it, we blamed the God we at one time thanked. Thanksgiving became a holiday, a day off work to eat until we were stuffed, watch the football game, and bless ourselves.

This Thanksgiving let us give thanks to the God of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for America’s incredible founding and pray that our government would never relinquish its God-given duty to preserve our rights.

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military

Dr. Sonny Hernandez

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
