Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale 5.7.18 ♥

Tonight after watching Sammy Hagar‘s new tv show, I realized Sammy is a good man all around. His faith, his music and being a philanthropist. ( http://www.axs.tv/programs/sammy-hagar/ ) Here’s a lesson straight from the lips of the Red Rocker, Sammy Hagar himself, don’t you wait for things to happen, you need to make them happen on your terms.

🎶 Don’t wanna wait til tomorrow,
Why put it off another day?
One more walk through problems,
Built up, and stand in our way ,ah
One step ahead, one step behind me
Now you gotta run to get even
Make future plans, don’t dream about yesterday, hey
C’mon turn, turn this thing around…..Right Now🎶

“Right Now” is about living in the moment. It’s about making something happen now. It’s not a song about waiting but of turning something around. It’s a motivation song. It’s an action song. It’s a doing song. It’s not a song about playing it safe, but a song of risking all to make it happen. As Believers we like nothing better than playing it safe. We are those who when we are confronted by the risks of life first gather as many facts as possible, view the options, and make choices so that we are in control and reasonably certain of the outcome. Abraham did not gather the facts, view the options, was not in control and could not forsee the outcome. He took a risk. At times we tend to label risks as “undesirable” because in the end we do not trust and we believe that it could end up causing loss and heartache and trouble for us and others, we fear unwanted results as much as we dread missing out on our dreams. That would be enough to have us stay at home. We are also afraid of looking foolish or incompetent, incurring financial difficulty, or facing physical danger. From a human viewpoint, eliminating uncertainty makes a lot of sense. At times this attitude is not the perspective YeHoVaH has for you. Our Father’s perspective is that there are times for the followers of Yeshua to take risks! To launch out and be the change. There are times that we are encouraged to say yes despite what we can see in front of us. When He is the one asking us to step out of our comfort zone we can consider ourselves safe in His hands and safe under His direction. ( http://biblehub.com/kj2000/hebrews/11.htm ) Just Like Abraham in the passage. From YeHoVaH’s viewpoint, there is no uncertainty, because He has control over all things and He will never fail to accomplish His good purposes. ( Eph. 1:11 http://biblehub.com/kj2000/ephesians/1.htm ) Facebook friends, spiritual growth is stunted when we refuse to obey Him. Sometimes that involves leaving what is safe or familiar and like Abraham taking a journey into the unknown and doing it now. Abraham did not wait he made it happen, he caught that magic moment and did it “RIGHT NOW”. Amen? https://youtu.be/rMV-fenGP1g

Is It All Getting to You?

Are you tired of the same old thing? Are you frustrated with your relationships, your job (or lack of)? Are you depressed and living in despair? All is bleak, you’re broken and worn. Can’t take it anymore… What’s the point of it all?

The world is hurting right now. So many people are currently facing these dead-end type of situations and obstacles in their lives. More people than you can imagine are at their wits end right now. These problems are just monumental! They are like giant walls. We cannot get around nor climb over.

It’s no coincidence. Everything has gone haywire, but the world is too busy and spinning so fast that nobody can see what’s happening before their very eyes and in their very lives. And face it. We are distracted on every side with the smart phones, tablets, all sorts of electronic gadgets. Social Media..keeping up with everyone…spending lots of time online…movies, T.V. and all…

The point is that most people don’t want to deal with it. The truth isn’t always friendly. We don’t like being told we’re wrong-at least I know I don’t. But I was wrong about it all. Then I woke up to reality and saw the world for what it really is.  And what a rude awakening is was when I realized how deep the pit was. The rut that I found myself in. I couldn’t cut it with today’s world and I was self medicating.

Making changes in our lives is quite uncomfortable. But one day I answered the door when The Lord Jesus Christ, The Son of The Living God Jehovah (The God of The Bible) came knocking. I could have ignored Him as many times before, but He came to me at a time when I just couldn’t make it anymore. I couldn’t do this thing called life. He set me free from the bondage of sin. The old me is gone forever and I’m forgiven, reconciled to God by the Blood our Lord Jesus shed on The Cross. He saved a wretch like me. If I can trust Jesus to get me out of the pit, you can too. It’s more than a decision. It’s a new way of life!

We come to God just as we are with our dirtiness and brokenness and open wounds. Then God makes us clean, BRAND NEW through Jesus Christ! You don’t come to God perfect. He accepts us as we are and erases the past!

Things are growing darker in this world today-and if you seek to know God through His Son Jesus, you will be able to see with spiritual eyes for yourself. Friend, things are only going to get worse and coming to Christ, belonging to God is the only way out. Jesus is going to come and take those that are His away from the looming 7 year Tribulation written of in the Bible, The Word of God.  The New World Order is complete but cannot be implemented until The true followers of Christ are taken out of the way. The new one-world government, currency, Mark of The Beast (in the right hand or forehead…see Revelation Chapter 13) and revealing of the Antichrist (most likely Barack Obama, see Bible Verses About The Antichrist),  Right now it’s considered “not cool” to stand for God through Jesus Christ, the ONLY WAY to God, unlike what Oprah and many other deceivers are teaching. It is considered hate speech to stand for an absolute right and believe in an absolute wrong.  Nobody wants to offend anyone…

The Time is NOW. We aren’t guaranteed another breath. Choose Jesus and eternity in Heaven this moment BEFORE The Rapture!

Those who are left behind after the Rapture of the Church (When we are caught up with Jesus) will be faced with an excruciating choice—accept the mark of the beast in order to survive or face starvation and horrific persecution by the Antichrist and his followers. But those who come to Christ during this time, those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life (Revelation 13:8), will choose to endure, even to martyrdom.

Wow…

A member of the church, who previously had been attending services regularly, stopped going. After a few
weeks, the pastor decided to visit him.

It was a chilly evening. The pastor found the man at home alone, sitting before a blazing fire. Guessing the
reason for his pastor’s visit, the man welcomed him, led him to a comfortable chair near the fireplace and waited.

The pastor made himself at home but said nothing. In the grave silence, he contemplated the dance of the
flames around the burning logs. After some minutes, the pastor took the fire tongs, carefully picked up a
brightly burning ember and placed it to one side of the hearth all alone then he sat back in his chair, still silent.

The host watched all this in quiet contemplation. As the one lone ember’s flame flickered and diminished, there
was a momentary glow and then its fire was no more. Soon it was cold and dead.

Not a word had been spoken since the initial greeting.The pastor glanced at his watch and realized it was time
to leave. He slowly stood up, picked up the cold, dead ember and placed it back in the middle of the fire. Immediately it began to glow, once more with the light and warmth of the burning coals around it.

As the pastor reached the door to leave, his host said with a tear running down his cheek, ‘Thank you so much
for your visit and especially for the fiery sermon. I will be back in church next Sunday.’

We live in a world today, which tries to say too much with too little. Consequently, few listen. Sometimes the
best sermons are the ones left unspoken.

We Are Unstoppable!

Lyrics on this poster to Unstoppable by Christian artist TobyMac.

“Unstoppable”
(feat. Blanca from Group 1 Crew)

We are, we are

We are, we are

We are, we are

We are, we are
We are the travelers, we look to the ever after
We are the strangers, we’re practically endangered
We know these roads here, they never seem to bode well
This our predicament and we ain’t even sick of it We make our moves in mysterious ways
We’d rather burn up, than stick to the shade
Not of this world so we live on the run
We keep our eyes set on what is to come

We are, we are (we are unstoppable)
We are, we are (for the impossible)
We are, we are (we are the kingdom come)
That’s who we are, that’s who we are

We are, we are (we are unstoppable)
We are, we are (for the impossible)
We are, we are (we are the kingdom come)
That’s who we are, that’s who we are

We keep it moving, this path is by our choosing
When we get tripped up we call above for lift up
Stay busy bashing while we proceed with passion
They say we missing it but I’m inclined to stick with this

We make our moves in mysterious ways
We’d rather burn up, then stick to the shade
Not of this world so we live on the run
We’ve got our heart set on what is to come

We are, we are (we are unstoppable)
We are, we are (for the impossible)
We are, we are (we are the kingdom come)
That’s who we are, that’s who we are

We are, we are (we are unstoppable)
We are, we are (for the impossible)
We are, we are (we are the kingdom come)
That’s who we are, that’s who we are

There’s no disguising, truth is rising
There’s no disguising, truth is rising

To live is Christ, to die is Gain
We’re not afraid, we’re not afraid
To live is Christ, to die is Gain
So break the noise, we’re not afraid

We are, we are
We are, we are

We are, we are (we are unstoppable)
We are, we are (for the impossible)
We are, we are (we are the kingdom come)
That’s who we are, that’s who we are

We are unstoppable
That’s who we are, that’s who we are
For the impossible
That’s who we are, that’s who we are
Unstoppable
We are, that’s who we are
For the impossible
That’s who we are, that’s who we are

 

This song really kicks butt when you’re working out and need some motivation or a boost from the Lord! 🙂

Brothers & Sisters, Body of Christ, let us rally together and be there for one another, lift up our Father’s name as The Bride. He is coming soon. No matter how spread out we may be on the globe, we are united in spirit, and that’s as close as anyone can get. Praying for all of you, everyone tonight!

Sending love in Christ,

Amanda

United In Christ

I love the song And All The People Said Amen, by Matt Maher so much that I made this poster with his lyrics. We are all struggling in this together. Rich or poor, it doesn’t matter. Full song lyrics below.

“All The People Said Amen”

You are not alone if you are lonely
When you feel afraid, you’re not the only
We are all the same in need of mercy
To be forgiven and be free
It’s all you got to lean on
But thank God it’s all you needAnd all the people said Amen, whoa oh
And all the people said Amen
Give thanks to the Lord for His love never ends
And all the people said Amen

If you’re rich or poor, well it don’t matter
Weak or strong, you know love is what we’re after
We’re all broken but we’re all in this together
God knows we stumble and fall
And He so loved the world He sent His son to save us all

And all the people said Amen, whoa oh
And all the people said Amen
Give thanks to the Lord for His love never ends
And all the people said Amen

Blessed are
The poor in spirit who are torn apart
Blessed are
The persecuted and the pure in heart
Blessed are
The people hungry for another start
For this is the Kingdom
The Kingdom of God

And all the people said Amen, whoa oh
And all the people said Amen
Give thanks to the Lord for His love never ends
And all the people said Amen (yeah)

And all the people said Amen, whoa oh
And all the people said Amen
Give thanks to the Lord for His love never ends
And all the people said Amen
And all the people said Amen
