Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale

🎶Ooh, you make me live
Whatever this world can give to me
It’s you, you’re all I see
Ooh, you make me live now honey
Ooh, you make me live

You’re the best friend
That I ever had
I’ve been with you such a long time
You’re my sunshine
And I want you to know
That my feelings are true
I really love you
You’re my best friend🎶

I would assume you could say that I was an “odd child”. I collected Record Albums from a very early age. I started doing “chores” around the house for an allowance at the age of 5. My goal was to become a member of Columbia House Record Club. I achieved my goal by age 6 and I was in heaven. I collected all the big names from the 70’s. Definitely Queen and Kiss were my favorites. I recall getting Queen’s Jazz album in December of ‘78. It came with this cool poster that my Dad quickly confiscated. It was a poster of about 100 women naked on bicycles😳. Earlier I received Queen’s “A night at the Opera in early ‘76. It was my favorite for quite some time. My favorite track was “Your My Best Friend”. Queen bass player John Deacon wrote this song. All four members of the group wrote at least one of their hits. John Deacon wrote this song about his wife. They lyrics of this song reverberate with love and passion. They project a happy life in the friendship with another. This is a fortunate thing indeed to find a soul mate in another person. It’s the stuff of dreams. Some are blessed with this kind of friendship on a daily basis, for others it’s something that they hope for very much. On the 31st October 2014 one of the headlines in the Guardian newspaper read “Panic, merchants worry that on line social networks will replace offline friendships, turning users into basement dwelling zombies, unable to converse face to face” This was according to the article, thought to be a real danger. It was a article that was playing down the ability to have true friendships. In my opinion the world would be sadder place without long lasting care, the kind of care that comes from true friendships. Yeshua/Jesus was a person who held out for true friendships. In His life we see this in a number of ways. He had His disciples. 12 in total in whom he invested a lot of time and care. Then there was Peter and John who he seemed to have an even more special relationship. They accompanied Him in moments when the others did not. Then there is Lazarus, Martha and Mary. The Bethany household was a place that was visited by Yeshua/Jesus on many occasions and when Lazarus took sick. John 11:3 records the moment when He hears of Lazarus being sick “Lord, the one you love is sick” of course Yeshua/Jesus is also a friend to sinners. Outcasts, vagabonds, ragamuffins, widows, orphans, the rich, the powerful, the infamous all alike found a true heart in Him. There is a great moment when He shares His values about friendship.
John 15: 12-17 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing, but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, He may give it to you. These things I command you, so that you will love one another”. Yeshua/Jesus talks about “Greater love” the kind of love that exists between friends. Don’t you think it is an amazing thought that you can be friends with Yeshua/Jesus? It’s a commitment that He will never break. It’s a friendship that He is devoted to no matter what. This is an important thing to hang onto. He willingly has become a friend to us. Someone to depend upon, someone to share life with, someone to hear our sorrows and to pour oil on them. Someone who will be truthful with us even when it hurts. Someone who will always see the best in us and who will be consistent till the end. Yeshua/Jesus gives us the model for friendship, His own model for friendship He calls us to follow this model and no other. Thank YeHoVaH/God today that you have been included among the friends of Yeshua/Jesus. He chose you to be so. In the words of the Queen song even if it sounds corny “You make me live, your my best friend” it is actually true. Praise YeHoVaH/God. Amen?

Sewing Into Others. SOMEBODY ELSE NEEDS WHAT YOU HAVE TODAY!

When I was in junior high somehow I gained possession of this Christian fiction book about staying pure for marriage. I believe I bought it at a book store or Walmart or something. This book really impacted me as an adolescent. God used that book to minister to me at a very young age about true love and the proper place and time for intimacy. God loved me so much more than I understood then and even more than I am trying to understand now.

I did a Google search and I believe this is the book that I am talking about. Some other girls in my class would see me always reading this book every time I had a chance to open it back up. One girl took notice and was interested enough to ask to borrow my book. She never returned it. I know she was was blessed in some way. God reminded me of how much I enjoyed this book today. Hallelujah! God truly used this book to shape my own life at a very young age.

Becoming Me: Becoming Me by Caitlin O'Connor (Diary of a Teenage Girl Book 1) by [Carlson, Melody] CLICK HERE to get a copy ON AMAZON.

God is performing supernatural inner healing on my soul around the clock (more to come on that in the future with an updated testimony). He’s been dealing with the ACTUAL SOUL itself through the reliving of trauma for rapid integration as He’s re-knitting me together like He did in my mother’s womb the first time. I’m finally at a place now where God is dealing with the deepest inner healing aspects of forgiveness, strongholds, faulty belief systems, and sonship. God really wants His People to KNOW WHO WE ARE.

Praise God! He wants to reach the youth in the world, but we are His Hands and Feet. Are we willing vessels?

I have really enjoyed The David Series by Pastor Paul Daugherty at Victory Church out of Tulsa, Oklahoma. I was searching for messages about father wounds one night on YouTube and this was what I watched. It led me to watch the rest of The David Series, which was amazing.

Published on Jun 18, 2017

Statistics around the world show that the majority of prisons, rehab centers, & homeless shelters are packed full with the majority of those who grew up with a FATHER WOUND. Under the surface of people’s chosen paths of self-destructive behavior lies a wound of unresolved pain from their father or absence of father. David knew how to be a PUBLIC SUCCESS as the King but often had moments of being a PRIVATE FAILURE as a father. Through this message, David discovers again that God’s love never stops even when he misses it as a father. We also learn in this message that there are no perfect fathers on earth, but there is a PERFECT FATHER in HEAVEN where we can find true healing in our hearts. I pray this message confronts you with the truth of God’s healing power to move forward in forgiveness knowing you have the Perfect Good Father in Heaven ready to help you in every way. QUOTES FROM THIS MESSAGE “Dad’s, do your best, TRUST God for the rest.” – Paul Daugherty “You can have VICTORY through the humble approach of forgiveness.” – Paul Daugherty “GOD does His healing through people.” – Paul Daugherty “Jesus adopted EVERYONE into His family to become the FATHER TO THE FATHERLESS.” – Paul Daugherty “GOD is not looking for perfect Dad’s, HE’s looking for present ones.” – Paul Daugherty “There are no PERFECT fathers on earth, but there is a perfect father in HEAVEN.” – Paul Daugherty SCRIPTURE 2 Samuel 18:6-9 https://youtu.be/C-gZsBTGEZI?t=152 2 Samuel 14:21, 24-26, 28 https://youtu.be/C-gZsBTGEZI?t=627 HOW YOU CAN STAY CONNECTED TO VICTORY Victory Church Website: http://victory.com Victory Church Facebook: http://bit.ly/2lfgplu Victory Church Instagram: http://bit.ly/2E7Qd48 Victory Church Twitter: http://bit.ly/2lp29pM Paul Daugherty Facebook: http://bit.ly/2BOyCN9 Paul Daugherty Instagram: http://bit.ly/2CiieFH Paul Daugherty Twitter: http://bit.ly/2E9tx3q

 

No matter what you’re going through today, be encouraged. We survive things for The Glory of God. Somebody else NEEDS what YOU HAVE right now.

Be a Mentor! It doesn’t have to cost any money. You can give an encouraging word for free. God has a plan for your life. The devil wants to destroy YOU and GOD’s PLAN and CALLING ON YOUR LIFE.

Today, you can find your place in Yeshua/JESUS.

Have a wonderful day and keep looking up. This is NOT the END!

GOD has a plan for YOUR LIFE and YOU can SHINE A LIGHT TODAY for the world to see HIM. Amen 🙂

Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale 11.3.18 ♥

🎶I was sick and tired, fed up with this
And decided to take a drive downtown
It was so very quiet and peaceful
There was nobody, not a soul around
I laid myself out, I was so tired
And I started to dream
In the morning the parking tickets were just
Like a flag stuck on my window screen
I says, “hey, you, get off of my cloud
Hey, you, get off of my cloud
Hey, you, get off of my cloud
Don’t hang around ’cause two’s a crowd
On my cloud, baby🎶

While spinning some Rolling Stones tonight, I realized even Yeshua/Jesus knew that He needed to stop and rest. My all time favorite Stones song is “Get Off of My Cloud”. It was written as a follow up single to the successful “Satisfaction”. Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, the song was recorded in early September 1965. As many of you know, I’m a drummer and the song is noted for its drum intro by one of my influences Charlie Watts. And also known for the twin guitars by Brian Jones and Keith Richards. The lyrics are defiant and rebellious, which was common practice for the Rolling Stones around that time, they were beginning to cultivate their infamous “bad boy” image. The Stones have said that the song is written as a reaction to their sudden popularity after the success of “Satisfaction”. The song deals with their aversion to people’s expectations of them. In the gospels we find Yeshua/Jesus from time to time taking himself off from the crowds to be on his own. He did not say “Hey! You! Get off of my cloud”. I believe for His own sanity, for His own survival he needed time alone.

“And early in the morning, while it was still dark, He arose and went out and departed to a lonely place, and was praying there” ( Mark 1:35)

Yeshua/Jesus simply needed space. We all need a bit of space. The main character in the Stone’s song wants serenity and to hit pause on the chaotic outside world. Disconcertingly, people continue to present new tasks and hassles to interfere with his life. After two such episodes, the main character travels farther into a desolate part of town, hoping to find peace, yet he wakes up to find that someone gave him a parking ticket. He accepts that there is no longer such a thing as privacy. Yeshua/Jesus wants the same in the gospel passages, space will replenish Him and equip Him for further ministry. Unlike the song Yeshua/Jesus admits that everyone needs privacy and that you need to take the opportunity to make sure you get it. Although good relationships with friends and family are critical, the ability to get alone time is fundamental. Choosing to have alone time frees us from other people’s opinions and our need to entertain. Aloneness allows us to meditate and separate from our needs and issues that relate to others. This could be what Yeshua/Jesus is doing in the Gospel passages when He goes to be alone. It’s this principle that He offer to us too. Facebook friends, people have their own clouds, which is conducive to a mindset of tranquility. On each person’s cloud, the individual can perch up and appreciate the surrounding divine aspects of life. If only we could schedule time like our Messiah to break away from our phones and TVs and take nights off to stay at home by ourselves and read. Like Yeshua/Jesus in those passages we need to take time by ourselves to find our inner peace, because sometimes we shouldn’t have people on our cloud and we shouldn’t be on theirs. Sometimes for our own sanity we just need to get away. Amen?

The Message of Cross – 12

Pungent Point 2129 Dated 21 Oct 2018

The Message of Cross – 12

Mark 14:38 King James Version (KJV)

38 Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.

Now the Message of Christ is to pray and watch, lest you enter into temptations. Prophesies of prophets has fulfilled, Christ is fulfillment of Law. Jesus said to disciples, Watch and pray because flesh is weak even spirit is still truly ready.

This is message of Cross for righteous faithful people, servants of God, disciples, sons/daughters of God, men/women of God to be careful for time, Because day of Judgment is going on, we are going through Last Days, Devil is opposing the spirit of truth of Christ. In this world, there is fight between good and evil, truth and falsehood, light and darkness and God and evils spirits.

Righteous faithful must be careful and pray and watch. After watching, be faithful and contented, it is written that In last days, elected and selected will be lost. Devil is moderately evil, Devil is roaring loudly (1 Peter 5: 😎. Be careful, lest you enter into temptations.

Only 12 disciples changed the whole world with Good News of Jesus Christ. But now 12 Millions above churches cannot change minds and thoughts of human being, why, because there is no Spirit of Jesus Christ to shine the darkness. Most of people have double standard, double mindedness, lukewarm Christian, they prefer worldly thoughts rather than missionaries’ spirits for peace of world, as Disciples had left everything for Lord Jesus Christ for peace of world. they prefer their luxuries, enjoyments, self- desires rather than spirit of truth and righteousness. Even darkness is trying to prevail over light.

It is written that field is vast, but laborer are few (Matthew 9: 37). Are there really few laborer who walks by faith in promises of God, Are there really few missionaries minded who wants to work for Lord Jesus Christ, Who he is ready to leave his everything for Gospel of Lord Jesus Christ? Who want to present for Lord Jesus Christ voluntarily above their personal desires.

Watch and pray for vast field, Humanity is going to die under darkness of worldly flesh thoughts and selfishness; People are fighting for denominational missions, beliefs, faiths. Do human have really mind of Christ who said that love your enemies, Love your Neighbors, carry Cross and follow Lord Jesus Christ? Do we forgive fellow human as Lord Jesus Christ said? Do human love each other, Jesus Christ become human to save humanity.

It is ridiculous that whosoever try to walk by faith, they make fun of commitment and devotion by saying. They are still trying to follow Lord Jesus Christ’ disciples ways. Even they discourage, insult and block the blessing, provision of faithful to tempt and blackmail. Worldly minded please themselves but not the Mission of Christ, it is too much difficult to follow the Great Commission of Lord Jesus Christ, Worldly minded discourage the Great commission minded by blocking basic needs of faithful who works of Lord Jesus Christ’ great commission. Everybody can work in planed schedule with funds and provision.

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10)

Dear Heavenly Father God, Bless the families of faithful missionary minded people who are working in wilderness and who are walking by faith in your Holy Words promises for everything. You are only provider, refugee, fortress, strong power. Father God, Missionary minded had spent their lives for your Good News among other nations by following Great Commission. Now they are on risk of lives, lacks of everything, homeless, stateless. You are Hope, We have hope in you Lord of Host, You can provide us from your divine treasure through supernatural ways. Most of minded like me wrecked have no way to come out from darkness, Because devil has become like morning start. Even nothing to survive. Even their families are on risk. You can only comfort all of us with your divine blessings to meet with families and have your confirmation for everything to be blessed according to your Holy promises. May Devil be ashamed in Jesus mighty and holy Name. I ask in mighty of Jesus Christ.

Rock Bottom ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Hitting rock bottom
having a hard time
thinking not another
mountain to climb?

Well, don’t you ever forget,
just who is your Rock
or who over that mountain
will help you to walk.

Up against a rock,
and a hard place
thinking you should
just quit the race?

Well don’t you give up,
hold on to the Rock
and through that valley
He will help you walk.

Having a hard time,
in your faithful walk?
Well don’t you forget
Jesus is your Rock!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 10:4

“And did all drink
the same spiritual drink:
for they drank of that
spiritual Rock that
followed them:
and that Rock was Christ.

What’s Going On In Pakistan (From Brother Farhad)

Post by our Beloved Brother in The Lord, Farhad.

There is recorded Truth about Asia Bibi and Governer Salman Taseer. she was innocents, she confessed that she accept the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). She never did any blasphemy. But there were personal fights of villagers’ women among them. They did falsely accuse her on the name of religion.

Majority of Pakistani Muslim scholars, philosophers, critics, spiritual leaders are happy for the Peace of Pakistan, dignity of humanity and sovereignty of Pakistan in the eyes of whole world. Because Pakistan had been polluted by the elements of enemies, those elements want to spoil the image of Pakistan on the name of religion in the eyes of whole world. Enemies of Pakistan just use simple heart Muslim religious groups for their personal revenge, ego and hatred above National spirit of Pakistan.

Patriotic Pakistani Muslim already knew that Pakistan’ nations had been under unrest, disharmony, loans due to traitors, non- patriotic spirits. Humanity lovers and patriotic people’ spirit of Pakistan are still trying to realize to UNITED NATION and International communities. Minorities are safe in Pakistan. There is justice for them in Pakistan.

But International communities and United Nations are on crucial tragic points of views and thoughts after seeing terrible condition of Pakistani nations’ injustice with themselves and their country that is ruthlessness. International communities are thinking that how difficult is for Christian minority living in Pakistan, Where simple religious religions leaders had been used to spoil the image of Pakistan in the eyes of world for personal causes. They use religions.

Record truth explains that she did not do any blasphemy but why religious leaders still are trying to prove her guilty of blasphemy? Why, For what?

It is Ironic tragedy to think for honorable authorities. Why religious want to prove her guilty? When she is not accused of Blasphemy? What kind of their love for humanity and religion? Why they want to use religion for their personal revenge from minority? Why they are trying to kill grieved and poor human. Is it crime in Pakistan to be minority? Is it crime in Pakistan to be poor among majority of Muslim? Can any member majority of Muslim use religion for killing non – Muslim – poor Christian minority? Why they did not think about National spirit? Why they don’t understand that country is for all human being of all religions?

Now International communities of whole world and United Nations had been obligatory to think that Why Majority of Non – Muslim are seeking Asylum in other countries. They had found answers of their questions by such cases of falsehood, persecution and unsolved cases.

According to Global Movements, Alliances, councils, Associations, protests of International community against injustice in Pakistan, Humanity lovers of National Pakistani & International and burden heart Muslim scholars, Journalists, Philosophers’ thoughts and reports gives clear clues and views of persecution over minorities in Pakistan.

International Communities and United Nations are going to take decision for Pakistani minorities that they must have privilege to be called as Refugee on the first petition of Asylum. They will not be refused and cancelled by UNHCR. As UNHCR has already given this privilege to Muslim minorities of other countries to be called as Refugees with full provision without any question, Now Pakistani Christian and minorities will be given same privilege to be called as Refugees with full provision without any question due to long suffering (71 years) of Non – Muslim in Pakistan, persecution, burning of churches & Bibles, living burning, false blasphemy cases, unrest and disharmony among religions of Pakistan.

Because simple heart religious leaders had been used for creating unrest in whole country, Most of Pakistani Minorities had no justice in Pakistan. Humanity’ lovers struggle will be appreciated by International communities for peace and justice in Pakistan for humanity. Even Whole country is under unrest due to justice with Asia Bibi. It is strange thing for International communities and United Nations. Why religious want to prove innocents as accused of Blasphemy. Patriotic spirit of Pakistan still want to carry on the dream of Quid – E – Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah that Justice is still living in the court for humanity, grieved, and persecuted minorities.

Please pray for Peace of Pakistan.
