Merry Christmas from the Constitution Party of Georgia!

We at the Constitution Party of Georgia wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas!

Jesus of Nazareth was indeed the child foretold centuries before by the prophet Isaiah who said, “Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government shall be upon His shoulders. And His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of Hosts will perform this.

The child born two millennia ago fulfilled everything that the Law and the Prophets had written regarding the promised Messiah. Jesus was God’s gift to mankind - prophet, priest, and king to redeem all of fallen humanity through the proclamation of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. That Gospel strikes the root of what’s wrong with politics today: the rejection of God’s authority and life-giving Word and replacing it with man’s self-centered, liberty-crushing rule.

May He who is called the Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, and Prince of Peace not only liberate our souls from the bondage of our sins, but also be the source of true liberty to restore our families, communities, and nation.

 


This Day In History December 18 - States Give Thanks

The new United States celebrates its first national day of thanksgiving on Thursday, December 18, 1777, commemorating the American victory at the Battle of Saratoga after the surrender of General John Burgoyne and 5,000 British troops in October 1777.

In proclaiming the first national day of thanksgiving, Congress wrote,

1777 Thanksgiving ProclamationFORASMUCH as it is the indispensable Duty of all Men to adore the superintending Providence of Almighty God; to acknowledge with Gratitude their Obligation to him for benefits received, and to implore such farther Blessings as they stand in Need of;  And it having pleased him in his abundant Mercy not only to continue to us the innumerable Bounties of his common Providence, but also to smile upon us in the Prosecution of a just and necessary War, for the Defence and Establishment of our unalienable Rights and Liberties; particularly in that he hath been pleased in so great a Measure to prosper the Means used for the Support of our Troops and to crown our Arms with most signal success:

The Harvest Festival of Thanksgiving

By Dr. Paul Jehle, Executive Director
Plymouth Rock Foundation
 

At this time of year many people reflect upon the Pilgrims and the origin of our American Thanksgiving holiday. Some contend that it either never occurred or was not a friendly affair with a legacy of genocide. Hopefully some context and clarity can help remove these myths and bring factual balance. Consider some of these facts: (1) We do not know when the actual harvest feast occurred, though we know it was the fall of 1621. (2) We don't know if the Pilgrims invited their Native neighbors to a pre-planned event, but we know they feasted together. (3) The Natives provided much of the food, and though they had turkey, venison ruled the day.

 
The Pilgrims (who were not called "pilgrims" until late in the 18th century), as children of the Reformation, "separatists" from the established Church of England, called for days of prayer as well as days of thanksgiving. Days of solemn prayer (and often fasting) were times of repentance for sin; known or unknown. Days of thanksgiving were called when specific answers to those prayers occurred. Neither of these was the origin of the harvest festival in the fall of 1621.
