Daily Devotional With Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale 11.12.18 ♥

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.

Looking in The Mirror Today…

Yesterday was Veterans Day here in The United States. My daddy was a Vietnam Veteran.

He passed away in 2014 with his girls huddled around him. My sister, our mother, and I held on tight until he took his last breath. God is so good. The Lord blessed us all with closure and a super peaceful send off at the funeral home here in town. The Spirit of God was so thick in that place. Hallelujah!

This morning as I was looking in the mirror putting on my makeup I could see my dad so clearly. I look just like him with his nose, deep dimples and all. It was just overwhelming for a moment. I missed him so hard all of a sudden. When I long for him if I just look in the mirror, he’s right there. It’s amazing. Praise God…

I thought about how far my Heavenly Father has brought me in my 33 years of life on this earth. I thought of how my dad would be pleased with all that The Lord is doing in my life right now. This year has been amazing for me. Many tears of pain, freedom, and release. Some of you know where God brought me from. You saw me struggle these past couple of years. Thank you for praying! God came through for me in the greatest of ways this year!

I thought I was settled in life just waiting on The Lord. He had this beautiful plan and Call on my life that I had no idea about until this year. He had to uproot some things first, but what He’s doing now is so beautiful! He truly makes all things new! God is so good. He loves us so much! He caught all my tears this morning as I overflowed before Him. I’m never alone. I cherish feeling His Presence on my skin faithfully each day.

2018 has truly been my year as was prophesied over me through Facebook. It’s been a year of dramatic changes, unveiling, truth, healing the hurts, major breakthrough and overwhelming love. I had no idea how deep we’d go this year, but The Lord has really taken me deeper than I’d ever imagined-in life, Healing, and so much more. Praise His Holy Name! The song “Oceans” by Hillsong rings so loudly for me.

So today I give thanks for my earthly father in the flesh and I thank God for freedom. I praise God for the great freedoms I have as an American, but more than anything for the freedom I have found in my Messiah and King!

Oh, the countless blessings I have known!

Yeshua truly heals the broken-hearted and binds up our wounds. This season of inner Healing has been so hard at times but so rewarding as I’ve been learning to lean on God in every way each day.

Praise God Who is Faithful through it all. My best friend.

God bless all the Veterans around the world every day in The Name Of Yeshua! He is a Father to the fatherless.

Oh, how He loves us! 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?

These are ONLY 2 BOOKS, 2 IDEAS in a great big world FULL of young people with different needs, unique callings on their lives, whose LIVES GOD WANTS TO TOUCH!

We MUST INVEST in PEOPLE! LIFE GOES ON after we pass away!

WHO are we sowing into?

So many young people are thirsting for validation and nurturing that they are NOT getting in the home as they should from their parents.

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.

The Message of Cross – 09

Pungent Point 2126 Dated 18 Oct 2018

The Message of Cross – 09

O God, why hast thou cast us off forever? Why doth thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture? (Psalms 74: 1 KJV )

In this scripture of Psalms, Psalmist explains the spirit of Christ Before so many years, It is prophesy by man of God about believers who trust in the God, Who lives among other nations’ guidance. Psalmist’s pain exposed in great suffering, it might be considered as complaint to God, Oh God , Why you have forsake us forever, Why your anger is against us, even we are sheep of your pasture. This is situation of Cross, why Lord Jesus Christ said on the Cross, My God , My God, Why you have forsaken me,

Believers’ suffering, disappointed in great pain and helplessness explains real persecution. In fact, they cannot tolerate more persecution due to long time continual persecution. Psalmist explains in question to God, Why you have forsaken us of God in other nations, you have forgotten us, we are suffering a lot, even our basic needs, protections had been blocked. It seems that psalmist pain is under continual those who are not belong to God, but are suffering under their control of everything. It seems that it had been for long time ago with believers. They are forced to complain to God.

if we see to current situation of Pakistani Christian, Asylum seekers & Refugees of different countries especially Asylum seekers & Refugees of Thailand, Malaysia. As They had been deprived again. May God restore all of us believers in Christ, may God send his divine supernatural help, May God set us free from these countries and other nation’ guidance to be blessed to live our lives righteously according to His Holy Words.

Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale 10.18.18 ❤️

🎶Leaves are falling all around

It’s time I was on my way

Thanks to you I’m much obliged

For such a pleasant stay

But now it’s time for me to go

The autumn moon lights my way

For now I smell the rain

And with it pain

And it’s headed my way

Ah, sometimes I grow so tired

But I know I’ve got one thing I got to do

Ramble on🎶

This week I have been listening to Robert Plant’s Band of Joy. The golden rock god burrows deeper into gothic American roots music. Trading in T-Bone Burnett and Alison Krauss for Buddy Miller and Patty Griffin, thereby finding the only sound that matters. My favorite track is Angel Dance and a new rendition of Ramble On. This album has brought me much Joy this week. Who doesn’t want Joy in their life? Isaiah 55:12 says, “You shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace.” The word “led forth” in Hebrew, is “yabal.” Yabal also means to “flow”, like a river flows. YeHoVaH/God’s Spirit is likened to water that flows. So, when you’re living in His Spirit and being led by Him, you’re going to flow. Is your life characterized by flowing or is it being driven, pressed, and compelled by all the things that are happening around you? Are you rushing and running but not being led? If you’re not being led, then you’re not going to flow. Anger, jealousy, fear, and depression have no flow. A life that’s driven, forced, and pushed has no flow because it’s not led. But if you’re led by YeHoVaH/God, you have the quality of flowing. Love, faith, mercy, kindness, Joy, and peace flow. That’s how you are to go through life, flowing in His Spirit. Don’t be driven, but instead be led and be Joyful. For when you are led by His Spirit, your life will flow like a river. Then you shall go out with Joy and be led forth with peace. Amen?

I am free, blessed, anointed, and appointed and all my body, weight, mind, life, health, skin, hair, relationships, family is in exact accordance with God’s word.

Psalm 3:5-6

5. I lay down and slept, yet I woke up in safety, for the Lord was watching over me. 6. I am not afraid of ten thousand enemies who surround me on every side.

2 Timothy 1: 7

7.For God did not us not a spirit of fear and but of power and love and of a sound mind.

Genesis 12:2-3

2. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. 3. I will bless those that bless you, and I will curse those that curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.

Psalm 138:7 7. Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand delivers me.

Philippians 1:28

Don’t be intimidated or fearful or show fear to your enemies. (Your strength) Will be a sign to them that they are going to be destroyed, but that you are going to be saved, even by God himself.

Luke 1:74-75

74. We have been rescued from our enemies so we can serve God without fear, 75. In holiness and righteousness for as long as we live.

Psalm 91:9-16

9. Because you have made the Lord my refuge, the Most High, your place of residence- 10. No evil will happen to you; no disease will come to your home. 11. Because he will order his messengers to help you, to protect you wherever you go. 12. They will carry you with their own hands so you don’t bruise your foot on a stone. 13. You’ll march on top of lions and vipers; you will trample young lions and serpents underfoot. 14. God says, because you are devoted to me, I will rescue you. I will protect you because you know my name. 15. When ever you cry out to Me, I will answer. I will be with you in troubling times. I will save you and glorify you. 16. I will fill you full with old age. I will show you my salvation.

Thou shalt not go with them; thou shalt not curse the people; for they ARE Blessed.” ~Numbers 22:12

A little harder is to pray for those who have cursed you or tried to harm you and your loved ones.

“Ask God to bless anyone who curses you and pray for anyone who was cruel to you”~ Luke 6:28

By doing what God wants to do you increase your own blessings and can begin the process of forgiveness and healing. It may not be what you want to do right now especially for someone intent on causing you harm and misery but God will take vengeance against our enemies… Pray for God to remove the hurt, fear, bitterness from the situation from you and to replace it with peace and comfort from the Holy Spirit.

“Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay says the Lord.”~Romans 12:19

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?
