Isn't it interesting the Israelites had come out of bondage, and thought it was better to be in bondage because then they could eat meat. So when they complained for meat YHWH sent a bunch of quail and those who ate it died of a plague.
I just find it interesting, even if you think the only sin they sinned was lusting for meat when they had the bread of life, what does that event remind you of? It reminds me of a bunch of people gathering together to have a feast to YHWH (most Christians will pray to YHWH this Thanksgiving and thank Him for these birds they will eat).
We're told not to be greedy/lustful, and yet people will eat so much meat until they get sick and need to take a nap because their bodies say that they ate too much and now they need more energy to digest all this food that shouldn't be here, so that makes you sleepy (when you're not awake your body can use that energy to digest). We're also told not to drink with the drunken, and sleep with those who sleep during their watch. Thanksgiving is a time when many are eating and drinking, and sleeping on their supposed watch, etc. The whole "holiday" (Holy Day) does not seem to be set apart for YHWH, but rather for the enemy.
In Numbers 11 (just read the whole chapter), you see the Israelites were not thankful for the manna from heaven. The manna from heaven is the "bread of life". Instead of being truly thankful for the bread of life, they lusted for flesh of death. So YHWH gave them what they wanted. He sent in an abundance of food in the form of quails. Instead of being sorry that they lusted, they went ahead and gathered all the quail. Then they died while the quail was within their teeth.
Numbers 11:32 And the people stood up all that day, and all that night, and all the next day, and they gathered the quails: he that gathered least gathered ten homers: and they spread them all abroad for themselves round about the camp. 33 And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, the wrath of YHWH was kindled against the people, and YHWH smote the people with a very great plague. 34 And he called the name of that place Kibrothhattaavah: because there they buried the people that lusted.
This month we will see many people gather together many turkeys and eat until "stuffed to the gills," so to speak. When Moses was on the mountain with YHWH, the Israelites made a golden calf to worship, and while they were sacrificing to the golden calf, they declared that a feast to YHWH (Exodus 32:5). But we know He never asked for those sacrifices. He was upset at them for what they did.
We will also see many gather together with their turkeys and declare this meal a feast to YHWH, when they pray to Him about how thankful they are for "this meat" to eat. You can search "Thanksgiving Prayer" and find many. But isn't that the opposite of what the event was all about? The Israelites were told they were not to eat meat (or else why would they be complaining about not having any meat to eat with all their livestock around them?), and they lusted to eat meat. Wouldn't the most biblical way to celebrate Thanksgiving be to be thankful for bread (the bread of heaven/Messiah) and fasting from meat, that is fasting from your lusts for it?
