Why Do We Give Thanks To God?
1 Thessalonians 5:18 … “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” We give thanks to God because it’s the will of God. He wants us to appreciate Him and all of His blessings.
I have written 13 different Christian Books. They are all on the website. Marilyn, my wife, has two for a total of fifteen. However, in this newsletter, I’d like to do a brief review of one book that I really had fun writing
The book is titled, “Moonlight & Mistletoe.” It’s a fictional love story with a Biblical premise. It’s about a young married couple in the 21st century, 2020 to be exact, that discovers a family journal that tells the story of two family members that lived in the 1800s.
The family members from the 1800s were Mike and Laura Travis. Both were Christians. They lived on a small farm with a wrap-a-round porch and a swing that soaked up the moonlight every night.
Mike and Laura Travis were married in August of 1870. Their married life together spanned 50-years and included the Civil War, the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, WWI, the sinking of the Titanic, the inventions of the airplane, automobile, the radio, the light bulb and many other life-changing products.
It is an easy read and contains a special 15-page Gallery of Christian Poems to encourage the reader in his or her faith. It’s 127 pages of romance, adventure and love.
My Opinion Editorial
What’s wrong with America? Ask Biden and you’ll get an answer of, “nothing is wrong” He is leading the country right down the yellow brick road to hell. Socialism is his goal and he does not care about the constitution, the welfare of the US citizen and the rights we hold dear.
He cares not about the right to life; He cares not about the increasing crime in our major cities; He cares not about the rising cost of gas, heating oil for homes, groceries, and many other products that are now more expensive because of his failed policies; He cares not about the truth as he lies about almost everything to hide his real agenda. He is trying to take away your right to free speech, your right to own and carry firearms, your right to be a free thinker. He wants a socialist/communistic America where he and his evil cohorts rule.
What’s wrong with America? The answer is obvious, Biden is wrong for America.
Know this! God is watching and will soon intervene in the affairs of men. The Bible says that the nation that turns its back on God will be dragged into hell. The exact wording in the King James Version of the Bible goes like this…
”The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. Psalm 9:17
Look up the word, “wicked”. It means, evil or morally wrong… profound evil committed consciously and of free will.
That describes, not only Biden, but also includes most of his team and most of the Democratic Party.
I’ll close my opinion editorial with this scripture,
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Galatians 6:7 (To sow is to plant.)
I have many Christian poems that have been designed for use as posters or nice handouts to friends and neighbors. You can see all of them by using this like. Designer Poetry – Marinelli Christian Books. Feel free to use them as you see fit.
Free eBook…I’ll send you my newest eBook, free of charge. It is called, ”The Anti-Christ. Just ask for it by eMail to [email protected]
Thanksgiving begins with being thankful to God for His lovingkindness, mercy and blessings. This is my prayer of thanksgiving.
Thank You Heavenly Father
Thank you Heavenly Father
For this beautiful day
And for the many blessings
That come my way.
For by your Spirit
Comes Joy untold
As hearts are mended
And lives made whole.
Thank you Heavenly Father
For this beautiful day.
It is with deep appreciation
That I kneel to pray.
For Jesus, my Lord
Has set me free
And given me eyes of love
To behold your majesty.

How about a short Bible Study?
Let’s talk about two roads and two gates.
Everyone passes away. We all go into eternity when we die. However, eternity is an unknown. Where is it? Is it physical or what? Is it large enough to support the billions of souls that came before us?
The Bible says, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:.” Hebrews 9:27 This scripture tells us that eternity is a place where every soul comes before God to be judged. We all will die and we all will stand before our creator, face to face. If you are a Christian, you should agree with me that eternity has only two dwelling places. One is Hell where the dammed are housed. It is a place of suffering and shame that is reserved for Satan and his demonic evil spirits.
The other dwelling place is Heaven where God is. We, the righteous, will forever dwell in the presence of God. I look forward to that day because there will be no more sin, suffering, hate or sorrow.
Jesus said this about that, “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads unto life, and few there be that find it.” Matthew 7:13-14
I will close with this thought…what road are you on and what gate will you enter in at? It’s no joke. You will be too late if you wait until after you die. Your journey through life will be over and you will have already decided which gate and road. That decision must be made now while you are still on this side of eternity.
I guess the real question is, “Where will you spent eternity? Will it be as a dammed soul in hell or a blessed soul in the glory of God? If you are not sure, you can be sure by reading what Jesus said as recorded by the apostle John.
Jesus said, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
