This has always been the symbol of Thanksgiving and as I do more research on this subject I find that “Thanksgiving is associated with the cornucopia, symbolizing food, abundance, and prosperity. The cornucopia of plenty has its origin in ancient mythology. The Roman god Fortuna, the goddess of luck and fortune, was often depicted carrying a cornucopia and it became linked with her. Lady Fortune represented how life was subject to the whim of chance, good or ill. In ancient Roman times Fortuna was sought by many seeking good fortune and to avoid bad luck. Since then this goddess has a modern name…Lady Luck”
Thanksgiving is an American holiday started by pilgrims.
Thanksgiving is a harvest festival to give thanks for the past year. During the farming era of the past, scarcity and need were always lurking around the corner. When there was a bountiful harvest it was time for celebration.
And that is what we were taught, however due to the historical lie that I presented in the first post I also see that it is still linked to symbolism and as children of the MOST HIGH we are to “come out of our traditions”. Most will then justify this celebration by saying “Thanksgiving Day is not from pagan times, hence, we are at liberty to keep it, and God will appreciate it.” I have heard that same statement time and time again with regards to keeping God’s Holy Days and His Commandments. All of these traditional holidays that man keeps there is much eating, drinking, lust and revelry in every one of them.
Proverbs 23:21 For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.
Mark 7:9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
Mark 7:13 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
2Thessalonians 3:6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.
1Peter 1:18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
It seems to make more sense to me that we ought to “OBEY GOD RATHER THAN MAN” Giving Thanks to the MOST HIGH everyday of our lives for what He blesses us with and what He provides for us. We don’t need a holiday to do this. We have His “Holy Feast Days” Those are the days He wants us to remember.
