commentary: A Time For Thanksgiving
Lest We Forget
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 26-Nov-11; Sermon #1076c; 13 minutes
Our annual Thanksgiving, as developed from the early settlers who called themselves 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.
