Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale 10.5.18 ♥

🎶It’s alright
There comes a time
Got no patience to search
For peace of mind
Layin’ low
Want to take it slow
No more hiding or
Disguising truths I’ve sold
Everyday it’s something
Hits me all so cold
Find me sittin’ by myself
No excuses, then I know🎶

This song came out in 1994, I was at the hight of my alcohol and drug use. “No Excuses” off of Alice In Chains album Jar of Flies was written by Jerry Cantrell for Layne Staley about his drug use. As I listened to this Alice In Chains song again today, I can see it being more universal than that. I think everyone has a time in their life that they just don’t have the motivation and patience to deal with others. Even family and friends. Depression and addiction is a B#tch. But if you tell people “I’m depressed” most won’t understand. They’ll take it as just an excuse to get out of doing something, or an excuse to isolate, or an excuse to get drunk and high. I think the lyrics definitely seem to fit Layne’s attitude towards the last years of his life. He knew he was depressed and a drug addict. He knew he was throwing his talent away. He didn’t want to lie and give some bullcrap excuse for his bad behavior. He, unlike most people in that position, was honest. There was “No Excuses”, so he didn’t give any. In many many ways I was just like Layne in my old life in this fallen world. The difference is I didn’t die in my depression and addiction. Today thanks to YeHoVaH/God, I’m sober, strong in my faith and even writing a book (hope to have it out soon friends) YeHoVaH/God is calling me to make an impact with my book and He has provided me the means to fulfill that calling. Even Moses didn’t feel he was qualified to do what YeHoVaH/God had called him to do. All Moses could see was his own unworthiness. To YeHoVaH/God there are “No Excuses” for not fulfilling the calling that He has put on our lives. When He calls us we can say, “I’m not ready, I’m not worthy, I can’t do it, and so on. But listen, there are “No Excuses” that matter to YeHoVaH/God. When He gives us a calling in our lives, He already has a plan for us to fulfill that calling. The only thing that holds us back is US! Facebook friends, if your fighting addiction, depression, illness or a whole host of reasons your not fulfilling your calling and making an impact. Please remember, if you have given your heart to YeHoVaH/God through Yeshua/Jesus, there are “No Excuses.” You have been given everything you need to make an impact. All you have to do is step out in faith and do it. Have you given your heart to YeHoVaH/God through Yeshua/Jesus ? Have you accepted Him as you savior and accepted His forgiveness of your sins? If the answer is yes, then make an impact for the Kingdom. If your answer is no, then give Him your heart today and join those who are making a positive impact on our world. Amen?

Personal Journey

NEVER BEEN ALIVE

When you ask The Lord Jesus Christ into your heart to become your Savior and Lord of your life, something amazing happens! Almighty God puts His Holy Spirit inside of you to live with you forever and never leave you nor forsake you, to help you in all matters until you meet with Jesus in Heaven or in the soon coming rapture of the Church.

THE HOLY SPIRIT, LIFE ITSELF  is placed inside of your earthly being!!!!!! You are then what the Bible calls quickened, or:

Primarily, to make alive; to vivify; to revive or resuscitate, as from death or an inanimate state. To make alive in a spiritual sense; to communicate a principle of grace to. To revive; to cheer; to reinvigorate; to refresh by new supplies of comfort or grace. To become alive.

Accept this beautiful, live changing, prison shaking gift today! Find rest for your soul in JESUS CHRIST alone! Nothing can or will ever satisfy you like Jesus Christ The Son of The Living God. Trust me, I know…

Don’t be left behind for the 7 years of hell on the earth about to break out any moment now when what is called the rapture of the Church happens. This is called The Tribulation period or time of Jacob’s Trouble and it is where God returns His attention to Israel. The Jewish people were blinded for the rest of our sake (The Gentiles) so we could be saved as well by The Blood of Jesus in His death on the Cross and resurrection on the third day. If They knew Jesus was The Messiah they would not have crucified Him.

Whoever else that does not believe in JESUS CHRIST and belongs to God, indwelt by The Holy Spirit, will be left behind for this nightmare. So many people are going to be left behind. PLEASE don’t be one of them!!!! Most will perish, and if they die in their sins unready to meet God being covered by The Blood of JESUS, they will surely go to hell forever. This is a hard message, but I want to tell you the truth and maybe offend you to help save you from FOREVER in the lake of FIRE! Eternity in Heaven is going to be AMAZING!!! DO NOT PUT IT OFF! Cry out to JESUS TODAY!!!

Above is just an example of a prayer you could pray to God to ask JESUS to be your Savior and save you from being FOREVER in HELL and also the 7 year Tribulation about to come on the whole earth. Just cry out from the heart and you have to really mean it! This is NOT a 1, 2, 3 believe after me kinda thing!!! IT IS A LIFESTYLE! SO, FOLLOW JESUS NO MATTER WHAT!!!

GOD BLESS YOU, PRECIOUS ONE! ♥

Don’t Pass This Up!

Hebrews 3:12-19  (KJV)

12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.

13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;

15 While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.

17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness?

18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?

19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
