JESUS - Parable of the Good Samaritan - YouTube

The Parable of the Good Samaritan

Just then an expert in the law stood up to test Him, saying, “Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

“What is written in the law?” He asked him. “How do you read it?”

He answered: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.”

“You’ve answered correctly,” He told him. “Do this and you will live.”

But wanting to justify himself, he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

Jesus took up the question and said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho and fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him, beat him up, and fled, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down that road. When he saw him, he passed by on the other side. In the same way, a Levite, when he arrived at the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan on his journey came up to him, and when he saw the man, he had compassion. He went over to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on olive oil and wine. Then he put him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. The next day he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said, ‘Take care of him. When I come back I’ll reimburse you for whatever extra you spend.’

“Which of these three do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of the robbers?”

“The one who showed mercy to him,” he said.

Then Jesus told him, “Go and do the same.”    Luke 10:25-37  (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

This Thursday is celebrated as “Thanksgiving Day,” and it comes in a time in which our nation is sorely divided from within, especially since the time of the 2020 election and in a time of severe political dysfunction within both political parties. Unfortunately, America is facing a crisis in leadership; there are few righteous leaders willing to tell the truth or willing to stand up to the lies and propaganda of the Marxists and those on the Left who control the levers of power in the vast swamp-like wastelands of corruption. However, as we approach Thanksgiving, there is much to be thankful for in such a time as this.

All is not dismal and we are not in a hopeless situation. In fact there is hope on the horizon in many different realms all across this great nation.

We are using this Sunday’s LightWing edition to offer a pre-focus on the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. We offer two features today. One is from MyFaithVotes’ Jason Yates who also believes there is hope in Thanksgiving. He offers a brief video to honor the 400th anniversary of the “First Thanksgiving.” A link to their website is provided at the end of the brief message. I offer a message this week that focuses on the lost history, or buried history of Thanksgiving. I present a possible controversial viewpoint regarding the Wampanoag, or more specifically, the Pokanoket Indians, as the Good Samaritans of this history. It is a long article (1620 + words in honor of our 400 year anniversary of the “First Thanksgiving” — no, I just couldn’t pare it down anymore). My hope is to change the way people think about Thanksgiving.

We hope you enjoy all of our features today, and that everyone could have a truly enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday filled with much to be grateful for, so it will not be too much of a task to count one’s blessings.  Happy Thanksgiving to all!

The “Message of Light” endeavor had been part of the “David Project” that originated as a genuine inspiration from our Heavenly Father, initiated to bring Light into the dark in this time. The project developed from 2018, and as we approach our third anniversary of existence, we have formally elevated the “David Project” to the more formal “LightWing Mission,” my personal ministry, which I had announced in previous messages.

These messages are freely offered and sent to you as part of the “LightWing Mission.” Please receive today’s messages as a gift from those who care. They are only words being offered, freely; yet, some contain a deep message of faith, or a much deeper expression of heart that readers can hopefully receive into their lives. As it has been written: “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” Proverbs 29:18 – KJV

May we humble ourselves, seek His face, seek His truth, seek His love, self – reflect, repent, and put on the whole armor of God  in order to end the wicked ways of the world in which we live. In order to live in the Kingdom, we need to destroy the culture of evil around us.

PLYMOUTH ROCK 400th ANNIVERSARY CAPE COD, MA Tour - Sunshine Tours

The 400th Anniversary of Thanksgiving: from Plymouth Rock

By Jason Yates

November, 2021

We visited Plymouth, Massachusetts, the location where the Mayflower landed and the foundation of our nation was established. The symbolic Plymouth Rock has become an American icon and a tangible monument to freedom.

The Pilgrims fled religious persecution and tyranny and believed in the possibility of self-government and the freedom to worship as they saw fit. It was outlandish, without precedent, and certainly not easy, but the courageous actions of those 102 souls established the DNA of the freedoms we enjoy in America today.

400 years ago, in the fall of 1621 when their labors were rewarded with a bountiful harvest after a year of sickness and scarcity, the Pilgrims gave thanks to God. The 53 surviving settlers celebrated their bounty with a 3-day festival of prayer and invited their Native American friends to join them for a huge feast that has become known as the first Thanksgiving.

In this video, we wanted to be able to take you to the place where the Pilgrims stood as shining examples of people who were deep in their convictions, certain of what they believed, unswerving in their loyalty, and passionately dedicated to God whom they trusted and for whom they willingly would have died.

As we gather for Thanksgiving, let’s do as the Pilgrims did and reflect on the amazing God we serve.

From all of us at My Faith Votes, Happy Thanksgiving! We truly have so much to be thankful for.

The Pain and the Peace Leading to the 'First Thanksgiving'

 Lost History of Thanksgiving Offers Hope for the Future!

By Dennis Jamison                                      11/21/2021

The Thanksgiving holiday is coming upon us this week, and it comes at a time in which the nation is more torn and divided than it has been in several years. This year, Thanksgiving is arriving in the wake of the “not guilty” verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial. This case can serve as a symbol of some of the conditions of the divisiveness permeating the nation like a plague much worse than COVID-19. A year ago, Thanksgiving came in the aftermath of the national elections, which fomented serious questioning regarding the legitimate winner of the presidential contest, but also a challenge to the veracity or integrity of the election process itself. The stench from the questionable outcome is still lingering despite attempts to just forget about it. It will remain an issue of contention due to the ongoing audits and investigations and lawsuits in several states.

Such divisiveness is a topic that has a life of its own. And, such divisiveness threatens peaceful proceedings in homes at Thanksgiving all across the nation. Additionally, in the midst of the true historical foundations of the holiday, a divisive narrative threatens to politically poison the peace of Thanksgiving for future generations. The notorious “1619 Project” of the New York Times, although only a journalistic narrative in the guise of history, is being put forth as the real history of the United States. Laden with the false premises of the Marxist-based Critical Race Theory, this project is being force-fed into the minds of several thousands of young people in several school districts across the nation. And, the mythology woven into the so-called history of the United States promulgates Marxist-driven propaganda with an intent of fomenting a far greater, or more widespread, racial divide than existed in America previously.

On the other hand, the genuine history of the “First Thanksgiving” is amazing, yet it has been buried in the virtual cobwebs and dust of time. Additionally, the stories that are told may not be trusted as much as they were before, and may not hold much relevance anymore. Yet, to fully appreciate the unique American holiday, one needs to consider that in their time, such a great feast, continuing three days, could not have been shared between the American Indians and the Pilgrims without some foundation of cordial relationship between the two peoples. In fact, it may still surprise many citizens that the event now referred to as the “First Thanksgiving” might not have occurred if it were not for a significant peace treaty that existed between the Wampanoag Indians and the struggling Pilgrims.

Wait! What peace treaty? Certainly, the Marxists do not teach that in their classrooms; but sadly,  neither is it taught this way by Christian historians or ministers. Unfortunately, this historic peace treaty is not readily taught in many U.S. history courses in the nation today. It does not fit into the Marxist narratives and Christians tend to focus on the first “true” Thanksgiving that occurred in 1623. Yet, the historic meeting between these two diverse peoples holds many more lessons than a few days of feasting.

After an intense period of suffering from inclement weather in their initial exposure to the New World’s winter, several people started dying. William Bradford in his “Mourt’s Relation,” which was essentially the brief title given to his journal of the Pilgrims’ story of founding the Plymouth colony, writes of the “dying time.” In the months from when they began their settlement in December of 1620 to March of 1621, 47 of the Separatist refugees died. That was half of their stalwart band, and half of the crew of the Mayflower died too.

Bradford recorded the names of the people who died:

Elizabeth Winslow: March 24, “Dies Elizabeth, the wife of Master Edward Winslow… This month, Thirteen of our number die.”

And in three months past, die Half our Company. The greatest part in the depth of winter, wanting houses and other comforts; being infected with the scurvy and other diseases which their long voyage and unaccommodate condition bring upon them. So as there die sometimes two or three a day. Of one hundred persons, scarce 50 remain. The living scarce able to bury the dead; the well not sufficient to tend the sick: there being in their time of greatest distress but six or seven who spare no pains to help them. Two of the seven were Master Brewster, their reverend Elder, and Master Standish the Captain.

The like disease fell also among the sailors; so as almost Half their company also die, before they sail…

During this period, contact with the Wampanoag was difficult and for the most part it was not a real connection, as previous meetings explained in Bradford’s written accounts described the natives running away or shooting arrows at the colonists. But, on March 16, 1621, Bradford mentioned that an Indian named Samoset walked boldly into their makeshift community at Plymouth and surprised them by speaking in English.

This meeting was the first official overture from the Wampanoags that Pilgrims had experienced.  It is said he bid them, “Welcome. He was actually an Abenaki from farther to the north and a sachem, or leader, who likely had learned to speak English through some practice speaking to English fishermen, whom he could recall their names. The English learned that where they chose to settle had been a Wampanoag village of the Pokanoket people known as Pautuxet, but it had been destroyed by a plague. In fact, the “Great Dying” epidemic wiped out tens of thousands of American Indians from Maine to Cape Cod from 1616 to 1619.

Samoset left the next day and returned with Tisquantum, commonly known as Squanto, who spoke more fluent English as he had been captured and sold into slavery by an English sea captain and had lived in England after some Spanish friars taught him about God and eventually purchased his freedom. It was because he had been enslaved for five years, his life had been spared and was the sole survivor of his village. Not much detail is known of Tisquantum, or Squanto, but he would become the translator for his sachem or Massasoit and the leader of the infant English colony. He would serve as an agent of service to the Pilgrims in this desperate period of time of survival, as a true Good Samaritan. In Bradford’s  “Mourt’s Relation,” he referred to Squanto as a “special instrument sent of God.” Squanto was essential to the establishment of peace between the two peoples.

On April 1, Squanto initiated a peace agreement between John Carver, the first duly elected governor of Plymouth Colony, and the Massasoit. It was a very simple pact. The treaty, as recorded by William Bradford, said:

  • That neither he, nor any of his should injure or do any hurt to any of their people.
  • That if any of his did hurt to any of theirs, he should send the offender, that they might punish him.
  • That if anything were taken away from any of theirs, he should cause it to be restored: and they should do the like to his.
  • If any did unjustly war against him they would aid him; if any did war against them, he should aid them.
  • He should send to his neighbors confederates to certify them of this, that they might not wrong them, but might be likewise comprised in the condition of peace.
  • That when their men came to them, that they should leave their bows and arrows behind them.

Lastly, that doing thus, King James would esteem him as a friend and ally.

While this was a very earnest agreement of respect and trust between these two distinct peoples, it is not part of English colonial history that is studied today. Instead, what is focused upon in middle schools and high schools in this period is the breaking of this peace treaty by Philip, or Metacomet, the son and heir of Massasoit’s position among the Wampanoag. Today, the focus of study is on King Philip’s War against the English in 1675, which lasted one year.

The peace lasted for over 40 years; it essentially lasted until Massasoit died in 1661. One who pursues peace may wonder why it is so essential to focus on the factors that highlight and emphasize the destructiveness of human beings and ignore genuine promotions of peace. This  precedent of peace can help people comprehend the deeper relation between Indians and Pilgrims that existed. A genuine foundation for greater friendship between two diverse groups  of human beings, two distinct cultures, two different races, with different religious beliefs, and despite the absence of a broad-based commonly shared language is attainable.

Today’s tragedy of the brainwashing of American young people is that the true history of the nation is not being taught. If racial harmony is the real goal of Marxist progressive-revisionist proponents, the part of British colonial history, which is legitimately pre-United States history,  the origins of the “First Thanksgiving” would provide a much better perspective of unity within    a diversity of ethnicity, race, and national origin. Teaching such history can promote unity rather than division. If taught properly, it can be seen as a victory for people that could serve as a better pattern for the harmony of humanity. Patriot parents need to actively oppose Marxists’ divisive “examination” of history because the purpose is to foment division between human beings and to weaken genuine relationships with an intent to divide and conquer a population.  It is an age old strategy, but  such an ideological impetus at the core of the strategy provides a false legitimacy to the Marxist religion. Thanksgiving provides lessons that are so much more important than turkey and pumpkin pie.
