The Real History of the Pilgrims

 Thanksgiving is coming soon, and most children’s pastors have special Thanksgiving services planned. One thing I have always done on Thanksgiving is to teach the children about America’s spiritual heritage ingrained in the Pilgrims and Puritans. These are some of the facts that children are not taught in school.

Most children are taught that pilgrims came to America to flee religious persecution. That’s not exactly true. Pilgrims and Puritans were persecuted for believing that Christians could have a personal relationship with Jesus separate from the Church of England. But they traveled to Holland to flee the persecution, not America.

So why did they travel to America? There were many reasons, but the main reason is they felt compelled by God to come to America and establish a colony of people that honored God. Many called this colony, New Jerusalem, believing that God had established this new land to spread the gospel to the world. William Bradford wrote in his journal that the motivation came from “a great hope for advancing the kingdom of Christ.”

Pilgrims and Puritans were not the same. Pilgrims were separatists who believed they should separate themselves for the Church of England and the world systems. Puritans believed in working within the system. When they came to America, Puritans wished to set up the government so that religious freedom of expression would be established. Pilgrims wanted freedom of religion so they were free to worship without fear of persecution. Both Pilgrims and Puritans wanted freedom of religion to protect the church from the government, not to protect the government from the church.

Many schools teach that Thanksgiving was a secular celebration. But letters written by the Pilgrims tell a different story. God was such a part of their everyday life that they included God in everything. One such letter states that Thanksgiving was a celebration called so that “God be praised” for what He had brought them through.

John Winthrop called New England a City on a Hill in one of his sermon. He, as well as many other Puritans and Pilgrims, believed they had made a covenant with God to be a new nation that was a model of Christianity to the world. William Bradford believed that America was called to spread the gospel to the world. Since the Pilgrims and Puritans came to America, the United States of America has sent missionaries to more nations and more remote places in the world than any other nation on Earth. Could it be they were right?

We’re Moving

Revival Fire for Kids has been located in Akron, Ohio since the beginning, but in May, we are moving to Cleveland, Tennessee. We will still go anywhere in the country, but this move will benefit many because we will be centrally located in the Eastern US. That means for most of you we can come to your church with less money for travel expense.

Revival Fire for Kids is experiencing children’s revivals everywhere we go. God is moving in supernatural ways. We would love to have a revival at your church. We are currently booking for this summer and fall. For more information, you can click the tab on this site or email me at revivalfire4kids [at] att [dot] net.

Here’s what my pastor in Ohio said after we did a revival at his church:

The Krafts and their ministry Revival Fire for Kids has significantly impacted the lives of our children, our families, and our children’s ministry team. The Krafts are friends and co-laborers in our church, and have ministered to our children as children evangelists and within our children’s ministry leadership team. I have watched their ministry internally, and as they have ministered at other churches. I have watched their ministry in our community through outreaches and street ministry to children. Their integrity and reputation precedes them; their honor for godly authority guides them, and their anointed and impactful ministry is changing the lives of children and children’s ministry leadership. Their emphasis on the foundational, life-changing Bible doctrines through creative and relevant presentations, capture children’s hearts and minds while depositing the Word of God.  Pastor Zach Prosser, Celebration Church
