commentary: A Time For Thanksgiving
Lest We Forget
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 26-Nov-11; Sermon #1076c; 13 minutes
John Ritenbaugh, reflecting back on his life’s experiences, suggests that geography and history came easy for him, making it easy to follow the events of World War II, enabling him to develop a love and appreciation for this country. Our annual Thanksgiving, as developed from the early settlers who called themselves (temporary dwellers on a journey) Pilgrims (temporary dwellers on a journey), was derived from the harvest festivals, patterned after the annual Holy Days such as Pentecost and Tabernacles. Unfortunately, the modern descendants of Jacob have all but forgotten their relationship with God, neither recognizing Him nor obeying Him. The cumulative result of this disobedience will be a harsh yoke of iron.
