Here in the USA today we are celebrating Thanksgiving Day, so I just wanted to take a few minutes to express my thankfulness to God for His mercy and grace towards me and for His gift of salvation through Jesus Christ alone, and to also express thanks to Him for my dear family and special friends.

I also wanted to thank all of you for taking time to read some of my posts and poems throughout this year, and for your words of encouragement, as well. I truly hope and pray that you have been blessed by the things that I have been sharing with you, as well as challenged by the things that you have been reading. Above all, I hope and pray that what you are learning through these posts is making you realize the extreme importance of looking to God and to Him alone and to His Word for the truth so that you will not be deceived by some of the many false teachings that are now being presented more and more by pastors and teachers that you have placed your trust in who are responsible for leading many Christians astray in these last days. Please keep in mind that you must not only be sure to ‘examine the Scriptures daily to see if what is being said (by the pastors and teachers that you listen to) is true,’ but also you must make sure that everything lines up with Scripture (Acts 17:11), and that you are not viewing God’s Word through the lens of the twisted teachings of men as I once did.

On this Thanksgiving day you may find yourself alone, or you may be struggling in the midst of a very difficult time in your life right now. I pray that you will draw near to God and read His Word for hope and comfort. I also pray that He will give you His grace and His strength that will carry you through this difficult time.

If you have never placed your trust in Jesus Christ alone for the forgiveness of sins, I pray that you would buy a Bible — preferably a King James Bible — and read the Gospel of John and the Book of Romans to discover the depth of the love that God has for you, and the truth of the gospel that has the power to set you free — no matter how deep into sin you may be right now — and His Word has the power to also transform your minds and your lives! He alone can bring you the peace and the joy that you are searching for!

I hope the following songs will bless, encourage, and bring comfort to you.

God Bless You



UPDATE:I have been able to take care of many of the important issues that I have had to deal with lately, and was able to spend around four hours yesterday trying to finish writing the next post in the Catholicism series. Lord willing, I hope to be able to present it to you by this Sunday evening.
