Thanksgiving indeed

There is so much to be thankful for, health, wealth, freedom,friendship.  One thing that outshines them all is that Jesus has risen.

Luk 24:34 Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon

This is the foundation of the Christian faith,  That Christ was born, lead a sin free life, and has, indeed, risen, to eternal life, and not just He, but we too shall rise!

1Cr 15:20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, [and] become the firstfruits of them that slept.

The first fruits of a harvest called to fruition by God himself!

How do I know that He is risen?  The bible tells me so, firstly.

Act 10:40 Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;

It was no secret!

Mat 28:16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.
1Cr 15:6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.

These words were written when living witnesses could collaborate the story!

Secondly I know He as risen for His promise to me has been fulfilled!

Jhn 14:18 “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
Jhn 14:26 “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.

Lastly, I know He is risen because I see Him at work!  The lives that change in ways only He can accomplish , cleansed from filth and sin.  This is His labor still in the world, and to be a servant to Him is great!

Phl 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun agood work in you will perform [it] until the day of Jesus Christ:

I have several times heard a story of a soviet party speaker on Easter.  He called together a crowd in the town t lecture them on the folly of religion, how superstitious it was compared to the truth of the State.  He spoke for two hours.  when he had finished the Orthodox Priest stood amongst the crowd and said, “He is risen!”  The crowd replied, “He is risen indeed!”

The truth can not be suppressed. He is risen! He is risen indeed!  Give thanks.

Thanks, Will.

I, too, love that story of the Orothdox priest and the response of the people.

The Word will makes it way!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before His presence with singing.Know that the LORD, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving. And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.

(Psalm 100 NKJV)

Amen and a hearty Thanksgiving to you both, Steve and Ike. May we praise Him here until we are with Him there!

1 Corinthians 15:51-58 “Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory” “ O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?” The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”

Hi,

Our homeschool group is doing a project and we wanted to get prints of this image. Can we get your permission to use it? Or can you point us where to get permission if it belongs to someone else?

Thanks!
Kevin

No, I can’t I just found it, but for non-commercial use there is no penalty.

Thanks for following up. We found a similar image with a public domain license, so decided to go the safe route. Cheers.
