Thanksgiving

800-thanksgiving2

Hi and welcome to a brief look at what the Bible [ God’s word ] states about giving thanks.

Matthew 11:25; 26:27; John 6:11;11:41—Jesus set an example of giving thanks to His Father!

John 11:41

41Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

Matthew 26:27

27And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it.

The Heavenly hosts give thanks! Rev.4:9; 7:11,12; 11:16-17.

Revelation 7:11-12

11And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,

12Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
