A Message from President Trump for Passover/Easter and more about this Season

“Both of these sacred celebrations remind us that God’s love redeems the world… Happy Passover, happy Easter, thank you, God bless you, and God bless America.”

May YHWH be pleased to bless us as a nation and as individuals!  Thanks President Trump

On Facebook recently, Chris Lavers shared this about Passover and the relationship to the death burial and resurrection of Yahshua (Jesus), Messiah, the one slain from the foundation of the world (Revelation 13:8b):  

Jesus was born into this world in the exact place the sacrificial lambs were born, and He was sacrificed with them in death as well. Having observed the Passover meal on the 14th day of the month of Nisan (the day beginning at sundown “the night before” in our terms), as ordained by God the Father, His scourging and trials took place during that same night and He died at the 9th hour, the precise hour at which the sacrifices began.

His sacrifice was for us, once and for all time. He who was without sin was in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights during the Feast of Unleavened Bread before He arose, offering to God the Father the pure, unleavened (without sin), first fruits of the harvest.

Paul writes, “But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming.”
1 Corinthians 15:20-23

Just as God passed over the children of Israel by the blood of a lamb and saved them when they fled Egypt in the Exodus, Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha’Mashiach) became our Passover Lamb to save us all with His death, burial, and resurrection. We don’t choose Jesus to “make Him Lord of our life.” He IS Lord of our life. We can choose to follow Him, and where He leads is to the Kingdom of God and to life everlasting. All other paths lead to destruction. He died for us, the least we can do is live for Him.

Pesach Sameach, Happy Passover!

A Proclamation from George Washington in 1789 and Thanksgiving Words to Proclaim 2016


ThanksgivingPrayer
This is a wonderous holiday.  It lacks the commercial spin of some of the other holidays.  It is a time for getting together with family and friends and remembering the One who made us; the One we are here to serve with thanksgiving in our hearts.  May we bless Him and be blessed in the process.
Here is how one of our founding fathers set apart the day in 1789:

THANKSGIVING DAY 1789
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
– A PROCLAMATION

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 – and Whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

.
Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be – That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks – for his kind care and protection of the People of this country previous to their becoming a Nation – for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his providence, which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war –for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed – for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted, for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.
.
And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions – to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually – to render our national government a blessing to all the People, by constantly being a government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed – to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord – To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and Us – and generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.
.
Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

Some interesting history concerning Thanksgiving.

PROCLAMATION
thanksgiving-proclamationThis year a general theme for me has been proclamation.  It is important what we think.  It is important what we say outloud.  It is important how we say it and when we say it and how often we say it.  If we are really serious about a matter, we repeat it.  If we are asking our children to do something, we repeat it until it happens.  If we want something from the king (or Congress), we keep bringing up the matter until it occurs.  Please consider reading some of these verses around your dinner table and proclaim His word to your family and friends!
Some scriptures about Thanksgiving for you to proclaim:

I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart;
I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.

—Psalm 9:1

The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me;
to one who orders his way rightly
I will show the salvation of God!”

—Psalm 50:23

It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
to sing praises to your name, O Most High;

—Psalm 92:1

Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous,
and give thanks to his holy name!

—Psalm 97:12

Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!

—Psalm 100:4

Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name;
make known his deeds among the peoples!
Sing to him, sing praises to him;
tell of all his wondrous works!

—Psalm 105:1-2

do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

—Philippians 4:6
