Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale ♥

🎶 All of my life I’ve been waitin’ in the rain
I’ve been waiting for a feeling that never, ever came
It feels so close, but always disappears
Darlin’, in your wildest dreams, you never had a clue
But it’s time you got the news
I’m gonna harden my heart
I’m gonna swallow my tears
I’m gonna turn and leave you here🎶

Facebook friends, does this 1981 song by Quarterflash describe your heart? Is your heart hardened like unplowed soil? By no means am I a farmer like my good friend Darrell Grubbs. I do know soil needs plowing so it doesn’t become hard, dry, and unreceptive to growing life. What’s true for soil is also true for your heart my friends. The heart left on its own tends to become hard. The natural effect of time is to make your heart more and more unreceptive to YeHoVaH/God’s word, His love, and His life. The answer is Spirit plowing so to speak. Hosea 10:12 says, “Break up your fallow ground: it’s time to seek the Lord…” Has your walk become dry, or has your heart become hard to His voice? Learn to plow your heart. Plow open your life and your heart, break up your routine, your patterns, your rut, that habit, your daily life. Open up your life to the plowing of the Spirit. Amen?

Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale :)

🎶The heart is a bloom
Shoots up through the stony ground
There’s no room
No space to rent in this town. You’re out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck
And you’re not moving anywhere. You thought you’d found a friend
To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace.
It’s a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It’s a beautiful day
Don’t let it get away🎶

I was listening to the radio this morning (yes some people still do this) and U2’s “Beautiful Day” was the first song I heard. In all fairness I never have been a U2 fan, but “Beautiful Day” really moved me this morning. I’m fascinated that this song is almost 20 years old, and I never gave in a fair listen. I feel this song is a cry from the heart to open up your eyes to those who need you, and stop denying that earth has become a broken mess by human greed and get busy doing something about the brokenness. Evidence of a broken world lies all around us. We are aware of it when we turn on the TV or read the newspapers. We are assaulted by MEDIA from all directions. Reminded about the broken fragments of human life from dawn till dusk. If we are unlucky it even haunts our dreams. Contemporary life is filled with brokenness. In many neighbourhoods people don’t have to to go to far to touch the broken fragments of peoples lives. The song “Beautiful Day” reminds us of hope in the middle of the shards of broken lives. The song can be heard as a haunting prophetic voice that reminds us all of the person and the purpose of Yeshua/Jesus. “to seek and save the lost”. The song provokes those who hear it towards hope. We are reminded of the hopeful message of Yeshua/Jesus to those who live life in the dirt or on the margins and at the same time the song rings out the challenging and disturbing message of Him to those in power. Facebook friends, hope “Don’t let it get away”. Just think what it would look like to live in a world of hope rather than a world of despair. “EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE” Get busy and do something about the brokenness in your Neighborhood, City, State, Country and this fallen World. Amen?

Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale

🎶In the peace between the stillness
When quiet is the sound
I remember not believing
And yet the joy that now abounds
Jesus is like an ocean
He’ll engulf and gently surround
With the tide of His love He’ll astound you
And He’s teaching me how to drown
In the ocean of His love
In the peace between life’s stillness
When no one else is around
Do you have that peace with the Saviour? Do you know His love? Does His joy surround?🎶

This, my Facebook friends IS a worship song. Many years ago I played drums in a Worship Band at local church. I suggested we step out of the “Normal 5 songs” ever church from coast to coast were playing. I was INSTRUCTED “Ocean of His love” by Glenn Kaiser was NOT a Worship Song by a very young Worship Pastor. So I politely packed up my Drum Gear and told the young lad “You wouldn’t know a Worship Song, if Yeshua/Jesus Himself stepped in the Sanctuary and sung it to you personally” (https://youtu.be/ReYfu5E-hOE)

We have more mega churches than ever before, it seems. Even the small churches are following what the “Mega Churches are Doing”. We have worship services brought into our homes by television. Many churches are filled with loud music and raised hands. Some even resemble rock concerts with the music being so loud that you can hardly hear yourself sing. There are all sorts of musical instruments from guitars to drums to cymbals to orchestras. Worship services abound and music abounds in them. Many churches have become seeker friendly and have very informal services on Sunday morning. We have experts in worship. We have books on worship. We have seminars and teaching on how to conduct worship. We have the latest state of the art audio and projection systems in our churches. We no longer need hymn books. It’s all on the screen or screens before us. We have well trained worship teams to lead us. Worship abounds in evangelical churches. Yet, in all of this are we pleasing YeHoVaH/God? Is He the center of our worship? For the most part, 98% of churches in America can not seem to figure out that the Day of Worship, the Sabbath is Friday at sundown to Saturday at sundown. If they can not even get the day right, how will they get anything else right? The church is in “code blue” condition today! YeHoVaH/God is totally against the modern ear tickin’, back scratchin’, charmin soft, compromising, pink tea and lemonade, Hollywoodized form of worship that never takes a Scriptural stand for YeHoVaH/God, and instead follows the sinful world. There is a shady technique in use today in which dishonest people poll a neighborhood to see what sorts of activities the people enjoy, and then build a so called “Church” that meets those specifications. They downplay the religious parts, to avoid offending anyone. Quite often there is no cross, the building does not look like a church, and they keep the Bible in the back room under wraps, in case you want one. The heathen world has actually invented a new, contemporary religion that is based in contemporary marketing techniques and expressed in contemporary entertainment genres. It is inherently narcissistic, (a characteristic of those having an inflated idea of their own importance), because it is worship the way I want it, in ways that please me. In designing this sort of worship, we ask the question, ”How would a congregation of secular people like to be entertained?” We never ask the question, “How would YeHoVaH/God prefer to be entertained?” In this sort of worship, the congregation has usurped the role of audience, a role that properly belongs to YeHoVaH/God. In effect, the congregation is worshiping itself! Amen? This week Facebook friends, I have a Challenge for You. Here’s the challenge, and I triple dog dare you to prove me wrong. Every CCM artist today, and don’t miss this, refuses to speak out against the sin of homosexuality. I dare you to show me one website where a CCM artist blasts what YeHoVaH/God calls an abomination, homosexuality. You can’t show me one. In fact, I dare you to show me even ONE mainstream Contemporary Christian Music Artist who presents the Gospel of Yeshua/Jesus on their website. You can’t. I mean a clear Gospel presentation which stresses the importance faith. I haven’t even found a CCM website that presents any type of Gospel. “I hope your not busy for about a month man”✌🏼

Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale 🎼🎧🙏

🎶There’s somethin’ wrong with the world today

I don’t know what it is

Something’s wrong with our eyes. We’re seein’ things in a different way

And God knows it ain’t his

It shore ain’t no surprise Livin’ on the edge🎶

“Livin’ on the Edge” is great song by the rock band Aerosmith. The song was written by Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, and Mark Hudson. It was released in 1993 as the first single from the band’s commercially successful album “Get a Grip” This song talks about how the world is a crazy place, but people remain stuck in their routines and refuse to change. I feel “Living on the Edge” by Aerosmith is a song about risk taking. It’s a song that encourages us all to step out from where you are and to take a risk. The song has undertones of deep disatisfaction within it. Today I am reading Hebrews 11:8-10.

(By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise. For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God)

This morning, I am exploring the theme of “Risktaking” and one of the the greatest risk takers was Abraham. 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. YeHoVaH/God’s perspective is that there are times for the followers of Yeshua/Jesus to take risks! There are times that we are encouraged to say yes despite what we can see in front of us. When YeHoVaH/God 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 just like Abraham in the passage. From YeHoVaH/God’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). Facebook friends, I am dealing with this situation as you read this, spiritual growth is stunted when we refuse to obey YeHoVaH/God. Sometimes that involves leaving what is safe or familiar and like Abraham taking a journey into the unknown. But risks must be taken, because the greatest risk in life is to risk nothing. The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow or love. Chained by his certitude, he is a slave, he has forfeited his freedom. Only the person who risks is truly free. Amen?

Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale :D

I awoke last night with a song stuck in my head I hadn’t heard since my music class at Roselawn Grade School in Danville Illinois.

🎶 Sing, sing a song
Make it simple to last
Your whole life long
Don’t worry that it’s not
Good enough for anyone
Else to hear
Just sing, sing a song🎶

Today WordPress friends, sing a song! Most Believers think it’s enough to know the Word of YeHoVaH/God, but the Word of YeHoVaH/God is so good, so beautiful, and so over flowing that it has to be sung. While reading in Ephesians this mourning, you are commanded to make melody in your heart. For the Word of YeHoVaH/God, like His Spirit, must flow and overflow in your heart. It has to become the music of your spirit. It doesn’t matter what your voice sounds like. He hears the singing of your he art. Today, no matter what’s happening around you, make melody in your heart to YeHoVaH/God. Amen?

***Warning, this song will be stuck in your head for days***

🎶This is a call to all my
past resignations
this is a call to all
this is a call to all my
past resignatoins it’s been too long🎶

I’ve always liked Dave Grohl. One of my favorite songs of his is “This Is a Call”. This was one of the first songs Dave Grohl wrote after his Nirvana bandmate Kurt Cobain was found dead. I imagine the months following Cobain’s suicide were very difficult for Grohl, not just because he had lost a dear friend, but because he also stated he lost his musical direction and inspiration. I read once, thanks to a great deal of encouragement from his friends, he found his musical voice and set to work on his solo project that would become Foo Fighters. Grohl, who was the drummer in Nirvana, wrote this song on his own, played every instrument on it, and did the vocals. Released as the first Foo Fighters single, the song was an emphatic statement by Grohl and proof that he could carry a musical project on his own. Grohl says that while the verses mean nothing, the chorus means everything, as he is saying goodbye to his past with the line, “This is a call to all my past resignations.” Said Grohl, “It’s just sort of like a little wave goodbye to all the people I ever played music with, people I’ve been friends with, all my relationships, my family”. While reading this afternoon in Luke 5: 1-11, I found Yeshua/Jesus points to the call of following Him and waving goodbye to all of our past resignations as well. This is an unexpected day of change. When Yeshua/Jesus and His crowd turn up on the beach there may have been nothing to warn Simon that a paradigm shift was about to take place. Perhaps he saw the crowd as little more than a distraction….a festival of inconvenience dancing toward him while all he could think of was his aching back and bringing to completion the morning task. After a fruitless all nighter, Simon could be forgiven begrudging the need to wash these useless nets. He is tired and ready to sleep. He will need renewed strength to throw them all again tomorrow. So it must have seemed strange when Yeshua/Jesus climbed aboard. The request to anchor “a little way from the shore” may have seemed even stranger. But something in Simon is humble, inquisitive, and open enough to obey. A few moments later and he has prime seating before the most desired of teachers. Yeshua/Jesus is in his boat! While the crowd is held back by the water, Simon is so close he could reach out and touch the master. It is quite a turn of events, from a luckless night to a box seat. It is enough to make a tired man laugh. We are told nothing of the content of Yeshua/Jesus’ talk. But it would seem that Simon, perhaps feeling he had little choice, listened through to the end. But it was another thing altogether when Yeshua/Jesus asked to be taken fishing. By now the nets are clean and dry. They are ready for later when the fish will hopefully be out again. But that is not now. Yeshua/Jesus may know how to turn a phrase, but He does not know the timing of fish. Simon half protests but then gives up. Perhaps he is simply too tired to pursue the argument. Something tells Simon that this is worth the risk. The boat is mobilised and the nets lowered, filled, and all too soon there are two boats at risk of sinking under the catch of the day. It looks like a feast tonight! Every now and again a moment of clarity comes. For Simon it is now. But it is not immediately apparent that his will mean the leaving of a livelihood. Indeed Simon’s initial response is to send Yeshua/Jesus away. Simon is now only conscious of the gap between himself and Yeshua/Jesus. It looks like an insurmountable chasm. Simon has touched the holiness of YeHoVaH/God and it has made him aware of his unworthiness, “Go away from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man!” I suspect Facebook friends, that Yeshua/Jesus understands. Fear can make a person reject another. And so, without denying Simon’s insight, He responds with an invitation to come even closer, “from now on you will be catching people.” He is speaking Simon’s language! And so Simon and his companions leave everything. Well, not quite. In a consumer society it is all to easy to hear this story as a turning away, highlighting empty boats and fish left for others to sell. Make no mistake, there is a radical abandonment here. But to leave it there would not do justice to the care taken by our storyteller. They did not simply leave everything. They “left everything and followed him.” It is a completely different concept. Simon, James and John found a better alternative. They have not turned from as much as they have turned to. It is not loss but gain. Yes, there is a rationality here. These friends have found a better path, and taken it. This indeed is a “Call to leave all my past resignations”. Come and Follow Him. Amen?

“This morning I’m tired WordPress friends. I had breakfast, read my morning scriptures and put on some good ol’ Allman Brothers and one of my all time favorite guitar solos.

🎶Round and round you go again
And it just ain’t easy, Lord

You want so bad to leave that whirlwind storm
But you can’t find no place to grab on, no, no
Round and round you go again
And it just ain’t easy, oh, Lord, it just ain’t easy🎶

Are you tired and overwhelmed? Do you lack the energy to do what YeHoVaH/God is calling you to do? Let me tell you a secret. Just call 1-800-44…(no this isn’t an infomercial). In the physical realm, if you don’t eat, you won’t have energy, bread when eaten, is converted into energy so you can do what you need to do. It’s the same thing in the spiritual realm. Yeshua/Jesus is the Bread of Life. So, how do you do what YeHoVaH/God called you to do? You partake of the Bread of God and you will have the energy to do the works of God. It’s that easy!If you’re weary, chances are you’re not spending time filling up with the Bread of His presence, or the Bread of His power. Receive the Bread of His love, and you’ll do the work of His love. Receive the Bread of His goodness, and you’ll live a life of goodness. All the energy you need to do all that He ever called you to do is given to you. You just need to partake because the energy is in the Bread. Amen?

This morning I was reading, (John 11:25-26) 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

***Before we get deeper into this. I am not responsible for the song in this post being stuck in your head***

Yeshua/Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead yet shall he live.
And whosoever liveth, and believeth in me, shall never die: Believest thou this?

🎶You were the girl that changed my world
You were the girl for me
You lit the fuse, I stand accused
You were the first for me
But you turned me out baby (you dropped a bomb on me)
Baby, you dropped a bomb on me
But you turned me on baby (you dropped a bomb on me)
Baby, you dropped a bomb on me
You were my thrills, you were my pills
You dropped a bomb on me
You turn me out, you turn me on
You turned me loose then you turned me wrong
You dropped a bomb on me
Baby, you dropped a bomb on me
But you turned me out baby (you dropped a bomb on me)
Baby, you dropped a bomb on me
Just like Adam and Eve
Said you’d set me free
You took me to the sky, I’d never been so high
You were my pills, you were my thrills
You were my hope baby, you were my smoke
You dropped a bomb on me, hey baby (you dropped a bomb on me)
Baby, you dropped a bomb on me
But you turned me out, baby (you dropped a bomb on me)
Baby, you dropped a bomb on me
But you turned me on, baby (you dropped a bomb on me)
Baby, you dropped a bomb on me
You dropped a bomb on me, baby (you dropped a bomb on me)
Baby, you dropped a bomb on me
We were in motion, felt like lotion
You were the girl for me
You were the first explosion turned out to be corrosion
You were the first for me
But you turned me out, baby (you dropped a bomb on me)
Baby, you dropped a bomb on me (whoa, oh, oh, baby)
You dropped a bomb on me
Baby, you dropped a bomb on me
I won’t forget what you done to me, baby (you dropped a bomb on me)
Baby, you dropped a bomb on me
You dropped a bomb on me
Baby, you dropped a bomb on me
I, I-I, I-I-I won’t forget it
I, I-I, I-I-I won’t forget it🎶

There are many ways of “Dropping a Bomb” or ruining an occasion. We’re normally taught that it is wrong to ruin special occasions, but is that Biblical? (Ok Jeff, we know now you finally flipped
out) There was this one occasion that everybody had prepared for, dressed up, brought food, and made a big deal of it. But then Yeshua/Jesus came and (Dropped a Bomb) ruined it. The occasion was a funeral, and He is in the business of ruining funerals. If you are a follower of Him, then it’s your job to also ruin funerals.(😳 You done wigged Jeff) How? There are funerals going on all around you, living funerals that people put on their whole lives, funerals of self pity, anger, bitterness, funerals of sorrow and loss. Thus, it is your job to ruin those funerals. How? Yeshua/Jesus did it through compassion, through prayer, through a miracle, through the touching of their lives with YeHoVaH/God’s love, through healing and through resurrection. Chances are there is a funeral being held not too far from you right now. You now know your mission. By the power of Yeshua/Jesus- ruin that funeral today. Facebook friends, today, ruin some funerals, subvert the enemy’s plans to destroy someone by “Dropping the Bomb” and sharing the love of Yeshua/Jesus with them. Amen.

🎶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?
