Obama Makes History: Thanksgiving Proclamation First Ever to Omit Direct Mention of God
President Obama's brief proclamation of Thanksgiving Day on November 26 was unique among all recorded Thanksgiving proclamations by his predecessors: it is the first one that fails to directly acknowledge the existence of God.
The beneficence shown by God to America is a theme that traditionally defines the Thanksgiving holiday, and this theme is strongly emphasized in the original Thanksgiving Day proclamations and consistently acknowledged even by modern presidents.
Obama's unprecedented proclamation, however, only makes indirect mention of God by quoting George Washington, stating: "Today, we recall President George Washington, who proclaimed our first national day of public thanksgiving to be observed 'by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God.'"...
There is so much going on in these latter times ... so much foolishness and utter ungodliness ... the blind leading the blind ...
Christ is coming and men are not watching ... they are not ready ... they are not being vigilent to see that their steps are guided by GOD ("IN" Christ), BY HIS SPIRIT, THROUGH HIS UNWAVERING WORD !!!
There is a big heart problem today and it is the same problem that mankind has had from the beginning ... men are so prone to giving way to compromise and following the dictates of their own hearts ... --- Obama is one of many who has '''NO CLUE''' ABOUT THE TRUE FEAR OF THE LORD !!!
Men best take heed Luke's warning !!!
Luke 12: 4) And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.
5) But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.
America has forgotten what it means to FEAR GOD !!!
The "Faith Movement" has fostered a perversly materialistic and covetous generation set on "self" and there is NO FEAR OF GOD in their messages that set mens hearts on "stuff" ...
WHAT ABOUT HOLY LIVING ... AND THE FEAR OF GOD ??? *IT'S MISSING TODAY.
We were a nation under God, a nation that honored God..Our nation's leaders sing God Bless America when tragedy happens, but our leaders do not honor God instead put God pit of our nation..God still has a plan for us..a remnant that will rise and proclainm the gospel once again to a dying nation..Obama like many are those who do not know God or His holiness nor His ways..only the lost react lost..We must pray for our leaders..but most of all..Thank God for His protection even though this nation is unfaithful..
