HEBREWS 11: 7-16
vs. 7. By Faith Noah, being warned of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an arc to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by Faith.
vs. 8. By Faith Abraham when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed and he went out, not knowing where he went.
vs. 9. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac andJacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:
vs. 10. For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God
vs. 11. through faith also sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past the age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
vs. 12. Therefore spraang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.
vs. 13. these all died in faith not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embranced them, andconfessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
vs. 14. for they that say such things declare plainly that they seek for a country.
vs. 15. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had an opportunity to have returned.
vs. 16 But now they desire a better country, that is an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called .....
The end times have often been described in many books and movies and we have told the biblical prophecies from generation to generations. But as time marches on and we began to witness more and more calamity , wars, injustices and tragedies, we must at some point recognize that the world as we know it is passing away. Thank God that Jesus understood and knew this and prayed for the people of God to endure and walk as pilgrims passing through!!!!

lIVE CHAT: Black Friday Sales, Turkey Thanks Giving Now Christmas
As with Native traditions in America, celebrations - complete with merrymaking and feasting - in England and throughout Europe after a successful crop are as ancient as the harvest-time itself. In 1621, when their labors were rewarded with a bountiful harvest after a year of sickness and scarcity, the Pilgrims gave thanks to God and celebrated His bounty in the Harvest Home tradition with feasting and sport (recreation). To these people of strong Christian faith, this was not merely a revel; it was also a joyous outpouring of gratitude.
If there is one day each year when food and family take center stage, it is Thanksgiving. It is a holiday about “going home” with all the emotional content those two words imply. The Sunday following Thanksgiving is always the busiest travel day of the year in the United States. Each day of the long Thanksgiving weekend, more than 10 million people take to the skies. Another 40 million Americans drive 100 miles or more to have Thanksgiving dinner. And the nation’s railways teem with travelers going home for the holiday.
Despite modern-age turmoil—and perhaps, even more so, because of it—gathering together in grateful appreciation for a Thanksgiving celebration with friends and family is a deeply meaningful and comforting annual ritual to most Americans. The need to connect with loved ones and to express our gratitude is at the heart of all this feasting, prayerful thanks, recreation, and nostalgia for a simpler time. And somewhere in the bustling activity of every November's Thanksgiving is the abiding National memory of a moment in Plymouth, nearly 400 years ago, when two distinct cultures, on the brink of profound and irrevocable change, shared an autumn feast.
There is nothing happy about celebrating 800 million Indian murdered by pilgrims during what is better known as Indian Holocaust Day. Today there are only about 2 million Indians left. We must also remember our own 100,000,000 Black Holocaust. The lives of those lost to police brutality daily here in the United States of America-The families lives will never be the same.
American schools teach a basic formula when it comes to early U.S. History: Christopher Columbus discovered America, then the Pilgrims came and spent a cold winter, the Native Americans helped them survive by showing them how to grow corn, they all had a big turkey dinner and that was the first Thanksgiving. And everybody lived happily ever after. The story sounds nice but there is an ugly side to U.S. History that many Native Americans say ought to be told. Why did relations between Native Americans and European immigrants turn sour and later violent? Should American children be told a story that's extremely uncomplimentary to the Founding Fathers of the nation? Does America owe reparations to the Native American people for human rights violations? Should the Thanksgiving story be revised so as to teach a greater lesson about morals, ethics, values, and respect for the culture of others?

THE GIVING OF THANKS
This is Thankgsgiving Week, which means turkeys are on the chopping block by the millions. It also means that many Americans will be pretending that the early settlers to America were heroes, and not filthy cutthtoat gangsters who robbed, pillaged and killed to create a nation of their choosing.
For the Pilgrims, the Plymouth Rock landing represented hopes and dreams of freedom and life filled with prosperity.
For the Africans, the Plymouth Rock landing represented the crushing of hopes and dreams, with nightmares of bondage and death and a legacy of struggle.
In the celebration of the Thanksgiving Holiday, Africans across the world should be paid a debt of thanks at the very least by every race of people in existence.
Specifically, Europeans and their descendants owe us for being the currency and unpaid workforce for the creation of the new nation.
In honor of the Thanksgiving holiday, I am going to discuss the meaning of Thanksgiving. So many people know the story of the pilgrims, but most people forget why they are celebrating. This is a time to be thankful and recognize all the stuff we take for granted are blessings. I challenge you all to make a list of 5 things you are thankful for and share them with your friends and family.
This month, as we make our long awaitied return to the air, we have a special treat in store as we dedicate this program to a celebration of the holiday season, specifically, Thanksgiving. As such, we're going to take a radical departure from our usual format and perform for you tonight...a play of sorts, starring the newly christened "clarkie-playhouse performers", that's a throwback to the old playhouse 90/radio serial formats from back in the day. Tonight's three act play is dedicated to our children and is called, "Thanksgiving Day;" and it's all about the pilgrims who first landed on this continent and the ordeals they faced, as well as the first native americans with whom they came into contact. After that, we'll take a short break and follow up with a free-form segment where we're all going to discuss Thanksgiving and what it means to each of us, as well as dole out some trivia and drop some knowledge. So, tune in, sit back, relax, and let us entertain you this evening!
