Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale ♥

🎶Hey hey, my my
Rock and roll can never die
There’s more to the picture
Than meets the eye.
Hey hey, my my

Out of the blue and into the black
You pay for this, and they give you that
Once you’re gone, you can’t come back
When you’re out of the blue
And into the black

The king is gone but he’s not forgotten
Is this the tale of Johnny Rotten?
It’s better to burn out than to fade away
The king is gone but he’s not forgotten

Hey hey, my my
Rock and roll can never die
There’s more to the picture
Than meets the eye.
Hey hey, my my🎶

I have been a fan of Neil Young since I was a child. He indeed has to many songs that I call my favorites, but as “Hey, Hey – My, My” unfolds it has charm and sucks you in. It is the kind of song to make a lasting impression on you. The lyrics refer to “The King” and Johnny Rotten as rockers whose legacies live on. The king is Elvis Presley and Johnny Rotten was the lead singer of The Sex Pistols. Although the mention of the “King” in the lyrics he most defiantly refers to Elvis. There is mileage in thinking about another kind of King who is gone but not forgotten. There are two ways of understanding that the “King is gone but not forgotten” 1. The early church believed that Yeshua/Jesus would return. This was the promise that He made to his disciples. 2. He is not forgotten by His church in his absence. The first way of understanding the “King is gone but not forgotten” is to look at the bible passages that outline the Kings return. (There are many, go read your Bible😉) Facebook friends, we should be awake and anticipating the return of Yeshua/Jesus. There is a real danger of the people of YeHoVaH/God in their impatience doing other things and forgetting Yeshua/Jesus and His gospel in favour of another “Jesus” and other doctrines that are attractive but will fail in the end. In the Vision of John. (The Book of Revelation) John is tasked by Yeshua/Jesus in his vision to bring seven messages to seven churches. In Revelation 2 John commends the church in Ephesus for all the right things that it is doing and then says that they have “forgotten” their first love. (Yeshua/Jesus) That would be a real tragedy that the bride of the Messiah (The Church, The people of God) Would forget Yeshua/Jesus altogether. What a frightening thought. Lets hope that the words of “Hey, Hey, My, My” ring true for the Body. “THE KING IS GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN” Amen?
