Excerpts from Two Emails in Addition to the 40,000 We Receive Daily for Prayer

Leave a comment

(John 14:6)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, what do you think about this? Brown University was founded in 1764 by a group of Baptist ministers. It has held its commencement services in First Baptist Church of Providence, Rhode Island (the first Baptist church in America) since 1776. Now it has become the 37th American college to include “sex reassignment surgeries” in its student health care plans.

ANSWER: It is a stench in the nostrils of God, much like ANY church or “pastor” that condones in any way sins like homosexuality and abortion. God didn’t make any mistakes when he made a man a man or a woman a woman. Yes, through modern medical procedures, you can physically change your sex, but it doesn’t change who God made you. To do such a thing is to literally tell God He was wrong!!!

“….more and more of your devotional copy is spent on begging to raise more $…….I realize that a valid ministry does take money.You have been at this crossroads now for 2 or more years..it’s beginning to read like those 4 day going out of business furniture sales that go on week after week after week.”

“…you are nothing but a typical money-grubber…why don’t you go out and get a real job?”

These are excerpts from two emails we got yesterday, in addition to the 40,000 we receive daily for prayer and counsel. To be fair, we have received emails like these for the 15 yrs we have been online, and the 10 yrs on TV, as people who have never taken the time to get to know me or our work here at Liveprayer immediately lump me with the prosperity pimps on Christian TV running their money hustle games for their private jets, Bentleys, mansions, buildings, and opulent lifestyle.

They actually amuse me to some degree since most people telling me to get a “real job” wouldn’t last 2 days just following me, let alone have all that is required theologically, operationally, and ministerially to remotely do what I do. As my wife often reminds me, I would actually make more working for minimum wage at McDonalds and get a paycheck every week!

I wonder if these people think all that is required to reach millions worldwide 24/7/365 happens by magic? I wonder if they are upset when politicians “beg” people to give them $50,000 for a chicken dinner to pursue their political ideology, or those commercials with one-eyes animals and the creepy music designed to induce you to give to some animal rescue group, or any number of non-profit organizations that depend upon donations to fund their work and without shame ask the public to give to their cause.

Since the first month of Liveprayer, I have simply got on my knees that first day of the month and simply asked God to provide what we needed to cover our operations for that month. Not a penny more. Until the past 5 yrs when the economy took such a hit and so many people have struggled, I would share our financial needs 3-4x a month.

Even though it still comprises less than 3% of our content each day, without sharing our needs, letting people know where we are at and challenging them to help, we wouldn’t be able to continue. Very few people have greater faith than I do, and those aren’t words, I live it every day. The same God who has sustained His work here for the past 15 yrs will sustain it until He calls me home or the Lord returns!

The fact is, if I was a “typical moneygrubber,” I would have done what Hinn, Dollar, Jakes, and the rest of the Christian ministries do and simply preach to the choir, use Scripture our of context to lie to you why giving me money will make you rich, or other deceptive tactics they use in order to guilt you into giving them your money.

If that was my goal, I would just be another “ear tickling” motivational preacher like Osteen and never mention sin, hell, or anything else that would offend people in order to amass a great following (and money!). I guess I was an idiot all these years for not asking people to give money for private planes, buildings, mansions, cars, and million dollar salaries like the rest of these guys have done, and still do today!

A few years ago the ultra-liberal blog that has hammered me for years, the Huffington Post founded by Arianna Huffington who was already rich after marrying and divorcing Michael Huffington, was bought by AOL for $315 million. What a world we live in when a left-wing anti-Christian blog is bought by a major entity like AOL, whose stock price has already lost over half a billion dollars in value since the purchase!

I remember over the years many offers by different groups and ministries to buy Liveprayer.com. One offer 5 years ago was for just under $6 million. I guess a true “money grubber” would have sold the ministry, or used the website like most to sell books, tapes, resources, and fill the site with advertising that would make it look like a NASCAR while pocketing millions, instead of providing all of the incredible unique content we produce each day for millions of people worldwide for FREE!

Since 2008, we have seen a 65% drop in donations like most churches, ministries, and non-profits have. In difficult financial times, I had a wonderful group of 30 people I could call on to help with a gift of $5,000, $10,000, even $20,000. The last 2 people out of a group of 30 from just 6 years ago that I could always count on for financial help in a time of need, contributed 20% of the Liveprayer.com operations last year.

I have cut our operations to the bare bones so we could simply operate. Doing a TV program 5 days a week on secular TV, sending the Devotional daily to over 2.5 million people worldwide, sending personal responses to over 40,000 emails a day for prayer…all for FREE…has costs associated with it! Sadly, both of the businesses of these final two friends of God’s work here have had a downturn in the last 18 months, and even they are no longer able to give as they did in past years, or most important, be a lifeline I can call on in an emergency when we need a quick infusion of $5,000-$20,000.

The fact is, our budget to do all we do reaching the incredible numbers of people around the world we do each day and 5 nights a week on the TV program, is the same budget of a local church with apx. 1,000 members that meets once a week and maybe for a pot luck dinner once a month! It is a “fishes and loaves” miracle how God exponentially multiplies what we require each month to operate and uses it to reach the incredible number of lives in such a personal way!

I have always led by example and over these past 5 years I have not taken a dime of salary, only what I needed to survive like electric, water, and food, despite putting in 14 hour days, 7 days a week as I have since day one 15 years ago. I promise, I have backed off a bit, a few hours to keep my doctor happy. Even when I did take a paycheck, my compensation was never more than $40,000 a year.

For those who encourage me to get a “real job,” at age 20 and for the 10 years I ran from God before going into the ministry, I was richly blessed making 6 and some years 7 figures, never knowing what financial pressures were. Since starting Liveprayer nearly 15 yrs ago, I have mortgaged my modest home 8 times to help fund the minsitry, and like many people, it is currently $40,000 under water. The reality is, I would be much better financially having a “real job,” instead of serving the Lord, but I no longer yearn for the temporal things of this world but the eternal things of God!!!

The good news is that God has always had a “ram in the bush.” He has used hundreds of key people over these past 15 years who at critical times were in a position to step up and play a critical role in His work. It has been interesting to watch one month one of the Liveprayer family who could send a gift of anywhere between $5,000 and $50,000 at a critical time, be replaced by someone else the next month who would step up and “save the day.” I am praying today for a few “day savers” to help me as we face our current financial challenges in funding Liveprayer.com and the Liveprayer TV program.

I know in my heart, like the Old Testament prophets knew in their hearts when God called them be faithful and serve Him no matter the personal costs. God has called me and this ministry to not only to save souls, but use this platform to lead our nation back to God and His Truth. The fact is, Liveprayer is not just at the crossroads, but a day of reckoning. We are on the verge of seeing 15 yrs of ministry used to turn the nation back to God and His Truth.

As a man of flesh and blood, I can empathize with other men of flesh and blood like Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, Paul, and so many others we read about in the pages of the Bible. You see, they all had a deep and abiding relationship with God. They knew when God was speaking to them. They all took great steps of faith to accomplish what God had called them to do.

15 yrs ago, God told me to start an internet site when few people even had the internet, to bring hope to the hurting, salvation to the lost, and God’s Truth to this dark world we live in. I didn’t even own a computer, the ministry had no money, yet BY FAITH, just like Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, and Paul, men of flesh and blood, I BELIEVED GOD AND TOOK MY WOK OF FAITH!

Here we are, in the last week of July 2014. Tens of millions of lives worldwide have been impacted by Liveprayer over the past 15 years. Over 2.5 million souls worldwide are fed daily through the Daily Devotional. Every 24 hours we receive 40,000 emails for prayer and counsel. Most important, over 800,000 souls we know of will be in Heaven due to our efforts and faith, and your love, prayers, and sacrifce to help me!!

During these past 15 yrs, I have had many opportunities to slip into the “Christian trough” that consists of the Christian media, the churches, and the vast majority of ministries. It would have been easy to live in the applause, comfort, and profitability of that subculture. However, I did not give my life to Christ for applause, for comfort, to make money. I gave my life to Christ to give hope to the hopeless, salvation through faith in Jesus to the lost, and to help lead a nation in spiritual freefall back to God and His Truth.

With just one week life in the month, we require $36,000 for the balance of our July internet operations and $44,000 to get our TV airtime current. I am standing in faith that over this next week, God will deliver the $80,000 we require for our critical daily ministry operations so we can head into the month of August current! If everyone will pray and “gives according to their ability to give,” it will insure by the end of the month the $80,000 we require for our basic ministry operations are current!!!

TO GIVE A GIFT TO LIVEPRAYER, you can use your major credit card on our secure server at: http://www.liveprayer.com under the “Donation” link, you can give using your PayPal account using my email address: bkeller@liveprayer.com , or you can mail your gift to: Liveprayer, 6660 46th Ave. North, St.Petersburg, FL 33709. All gifts to Liveprayer are 100% tax deductible.

I love you and care about you so much. Over the years, it has been millions of friends like you praying, thousands of friends like you making sacrifices, sometimes great sacrifices, to help Liveprayer accomplish all it has. Back in November of 2007, I told you in a Devotional that the world as we know it was going to change greatly in the coming year. God was no longer going to sit back and watch a nation slaughter 4,000 innocent babies every day, make a mockery of His holy institution of marriage, see every type of perverted sexual act promoted and glorified, have His plan for the family altered…while men worshipped and bowed down to every false god and idol they had created in their evil minds!

I could never ask you for a dime for myself, however if every kind of organization under the sun believes in what they are doing to ask people to support them, I certainly have no shame to ask for your help to pray for people, save souls, and help save this nation! The fact is, we do more with less than any non-profit, church or Christian minsitry I know of. That is because I don’t use your money for buildings, huge staffs, private jets, multi-million dollar salaries for me and family members, to buy 10 million dollar beachfront mansions, or new Bentleys. Listen, if you want to give for those things that is up to you.

NINETY THREE CENTS OF EVERY DOLLAR WE RAISE GOES TO WHAT WE DO! THAT IS SAVING SOULS, BRINGING HOPE TO THE HURTING, AND TO CHANGE THE SPRITUAL COURSE OF THIS NATION BEFORE WE SEE THE WRATH AND PUNISHMENT OF ALMIGHTY GOD UNLEASHED ON OUR LAND!!!

I need everyone today to pray! Pray for God to move on hearts who are able to help me at this critical time. I also need you to forward this Devotional to everyone you know who loves the Lord and wants to see God put back on the throne of this nation and His Truth proclaimed across the land. Lastly, even if you have to dig our a quarter from the couch, I need everyone reading this make a sacrifce to help me.

The Bible teaches to give according to our ability to give. For some, it may be just a quarter you find in the couch. For others, it may be $1, or $5. Still others, especially those who are working can give $20, $50, $100. Still others who God has blessed can send a gift of $200, $500, $1,000, even $10,000, $20,000, $100,000, or $1 million. People give $1 million every day to causes they care about. Is the soul of a nation, the eternal souls of millions of people worth $1 million if you have the ability to send such a gift?????

I have been on the front lines taking the fire for 22 years now. I refuse to retreat to the safety and profitability of the “Christian trough” while this nation is destroyed by satan and his minions and souls needlessly end up in hell. I have but one life, and when it was over, I want to be able to stand before God and know that I gave everything I had for the Kingdom. I want to take my last breath knowing my life’s work is complete and I held nothing back in my service for the Lord.

I have only been able to fight this fight these past 2 decades because of dear friends like you. Now more than ever I need you to stand with me. Pray, give as you are able in accordance with what the Bible teaches, and take your stand with me. The time is short, the spiritual state of this nation hangs in the balance, the souls of hundreds of millions of people are at stake. It is time to act and lead this nation back to God and His Truth while leading the lost to faith in Jesus Christ!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

Your Enemy the Devil Prowls Around Like a Roaring Lion Seeking Someone to Devour

Leave a comment

(1 Peter 5:8)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, having pondered man made weddings, where did all this extra paraphernalia come from? The excessive everything, even going into debt, the vows people say which are not in the Word of God, the wedding dresses, the gifts? Understand viewed this is a wonderful God given commitment and beautiful day but having seen so much that is not of him involved in this day I feel God has shown me it is not of him. Can you help me?

ANSWER: Marriage is both a legal and holy union of a man and woman for life. Just like the world has perverted and commercialized Christmas, which is the celebration of the birth of Jesus, so the world has perverted and commercialized this wonderful moment when a man and woman vow before each other, witnesses, and God, their lives to each other. Having officiated dozens of weddings, I use Biblical passages for the vows, and meet with the couple several times prior to the wedding to insure they both fully understand the commitment they are making to each other and God. I also challenge them to stay focused on the spiritual aspects of their day, and not allow themselves to get so caught up in the way the world celebrates weddings.

“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8

For many years, I lived in downtown Chicago. You do not have to spend much time in downtown Chicago before you see the Chicago Streets and Sanitation Departments big blue tow trucks. These are not your normal tow trucks. They are about three times the size of a standard tow truck and bright blue.

One afternoon I was sitting on a bench near City Hall and I was watching this one particular tow truck, slowly creeping up the street. Very slowly. The driver was carefully looking at each parked car to make sure they were parked at a meter and there was money in the meter. I watched as the truck slowly went up one block, then back down the next block.

Then all of the sudden, the yellow lights went on, the truck went into action, and within a few minutes, had attached an illegally parked car to its hook and was off to the pound. Now, as interesting as this story may be, you are probably wondering what this has to do with the Lord or anything spiritual.

That tow truck represents the enemy, walking about seeking who he might destroy. The parked cars represent each of us. You see, when your spiritual meter is full and you are properly parked, then the enemy has no control over your life.

The enemy is interested in finding those who are adrift, away from God. He looks for those who are weak. That is why day after day I encourage you to start in prayer and reading the Word. That is the spiritual food you need to be strong for the day. That is the equivalent of putting money into your spiritual meter.

What you do during the day, the places you go, the activities you are involved in, are the equivalent to being properly parked. Remember, when we are illegally parked, in places we shouldn’t be, we become an easy target for the enemy.

I love you and care about you so much. The point of this Devotional today is to keep you aware that there is a very real enemy out there whose goal is to kill, steal, and destroy. If you think back on your life, or possibly where you are right now, you can probably trace a lot of the attacks to not being where you need to be with the Lord.

Just like those cars illegally parked, or cars at expired meters, you become an easy target. I love you, and care about you, and try daily to do my best to warn you of the dangers that exist in this life and how we can avoid many of them.

Remember, it is critical to be prayed up, in close daily contact with the Lord. The enemy is out there, lurking. Like the big blue tow trucks of Chicago, the enemy is looking for an easy target. God has given you the tools to avoid being an easy target. Use them.

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

A True Tool of Satan Exposed for the World to See

Leave a comment

(2 Corinthians 11:14)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, is classical music or Christian music really my only options even if am old enough in the faith not let music lead my astray??

ANSWER: Absolutely NOT! Again, it is about our priorities. There is nothing wrong with enjoying music of many different genres. I would remind you that we do need to be cognizant of what we watch and listen to, so there are some “music” genres like “gangsta rap,” and other forms with disgusting lyrics people of faith should refrain from.

***EVEN THOUGH IT WILL CAUSE YOU GRIEF, SHARE THIS IMPORTANT MESSAGE WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW AND ON YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA. BE PREPARED FOR THE BLIND AND IGNORANT FOLLOWERS OF THIS TOOL OF SATAN TO RISE UP. PRAY FOR THEIR EYES TO BE OPENED AS MILLIONS OF EYES ARE BEING OPENED TO THIS MOST DANGEROUS MAN “MASQUERADING AS AN ANGEL OF LIGHT!”

“And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.” 2 Corinthians 11:14

A true tool of satan exposed for the world to see! I have long contended that Glenn Beck, a proud and unapologetic member of the satanically inspired polytheistic Mormon cult, is a modern day personification of this verse. Glenn Beck has built his media empire on a fusion of conservative politics and new age spirituality while fraudulently promoting himself as a “Christian” as all of the members of his cult lie in doing. His latest “scam” has finally caused many people to wake up and see this lying huckster/profiteer/con-artist for the evil man he is truly is!

*I have educated people for the past decade in the Daily Devotional on the true beliefs of Beck, Romney, who is a 5th generation high priest in his cult, and the rest of those who follow the lies of their cults founder Joseph Smith. Go to the Daily Devotional archives at the link below and type in keyword MORMON, or BECK, and all of the Devotionals over the years I have written on Beck and his satanic cult will be available to you. Link: http://www.liveprayer.com/darchive.cfm

Beck’s latest hustle over the past weekend was taking food, shoes, teddy bears, and soccer balls to the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT children at the border after claiming he was being inundated for help by the “churches.” Of course, Beck never said what churches, simply playing his blind followers for the fools most are. I assure you, this was never something that came about by pleas for help from “churches,” but like all of Beck’s hustles, it was a cleverly orchestrated plan by Beck to exploit this national crisis for his own gain like in EVERYTHING he does!

Please never forget these simple facts. Nothing Glenn Beck does, EVER, no matter how noble it sounds, is done for FREE. Everything this modern day version of the founder of his cult does (Joseph Smith who was a documented con-artist), is about 3 things. First, is money that goes into Glenn Beck’s pocket. Second, is the building of his own empire through the acquisition of assets his “followers” pay for that Beck owns and controls accounting for well over one hundred of million of dollars. Third, is the furtherance of his Mormon cult and his standing in that cult. NOTHING GLENN BECK HAS DONE, IS DOING, OR EVER WILL DO, DOESN’T HAVE ALL THREE OF THESE ELEMENTS!

Of course, the blind sheeple who follow this modern day tool of satan are told by Beck that all he does is because “god” told him to do it. He presents all of his efforts as the difficult journey “god” has him on. Like all cons, everything Beck does has a wonderful narrative to it that makes people feel good about giving him their money. (Never forget, EVERYTHING Beck ever does involves people giving him their money!)

Of course this “godly servant” fails to tell people that the “god’ of his cult isn’t the God of the Bible. He counts on the Biblical ignorance of his audience, a large percentage who identify themselves as Christians. No, the “god” of Beck’s polytheistic Mormon cult used to be a man like you and I and ascended to become a “god” as Beck, Romney, and all Mormon men believe they will as well if they do enough good works and follow the teachings of their cult. Like most cults, Beck and his cult believes that it is through their good works they are saved and have the ability to rise up one day and become a “god!”

Maybe this will help you understand that one of his tools to separate people from their money is his Mercury One charity run by his wife, with the Board chaired by his bought and paid for modern day Judas David Barton of Wallbuilders! Beck masterfully gets people to give him money for his charity to do the good works he takes credit for that he believes will help him to become the god of his own planet one day. It also allows Beck to create a valuable mailing list of donors that he can tap into for not just future donations, but to also give him money for whatever his latest scam might be.

Of course as a private charity, Beck refuses to divulge any sort of financial data in regards to where the money he takes in is distributed. No doubt many of his non-Mormon donors are blindly helping advance the work of his Mormon cult that is helping to lead the souls of men and women worldwide to hell with their false gospel (Galatians 1:6-9).

To that end, Beck brags about “tithing to his church.” The translation, the suckers who give him money for anything, his charity, books, pay-per-view internet site, live events, the sponsors on his radio program or internet sites (many who are members of Beck’s Mormon cult), whatever he is hawking that day, are actually helping to fund the worldwide efforts of his satan-inspired Mormon cult!!!

Beck must laugh himself to sleep at night as he cons people to pay him a monthly fee of $10 for his “TV Network” that he is in the process of getting cable and satellite networks to carry where people are able to watch the same programming for a few penny’s on their cable bill, and generating tens of thousands for Beck each month!

That is why Beck daily lambastes DirecTV and Comcast like his cult brother Harry Reid daily lambastes the Koch Brothers on the Senate floor. Comcast and DirecTV refuse to carry Beck’s “network” that would bring his empire millions annually, and despite his intimidation efforts, begging his sheeple to call Comcast and DirecTV and DEMAND they carry his TV networks, these media giants are too big to be intimidated by someone like Beck!

*Note: You might want to remember this Daily Devotional if you are PAYING (you giving Beck money is part of everything he does) to attend his latest hustle tomorrow night as Beck takes advantage of the Common Core issue with his live movie theater production.

Beck’s stunt on the border under the guise of “mercy and compassion” for children, will not only be used by those promoting and profiting off of brining illegal aliens of all ages and with all types of motivations into this country, but by those in our country with a political agenda and many other desires involving and open border.

Who actually were these “children” Beck saw over the weekend? Maybe a better questions was how did Glenn Beck get access with these children who the media and US Congressmen have no access to? With the tight control the Department of Homeland Security has exercised over these illegal alien children, it is interesting that Beck and his cameras were given such unfettered access when other journalists and news organizations are refused such access.

Of course now that he has raised several million dollars for this border scam from people foolish enough to give him their money, had his photo-ops that he will promote for personal gain for months to come, Beck will go back to his multi-million dollar compound outside of Dallas, or his Mormon ranch in Idaho, while his “props”…the illegal alien children…will go back to living in a quasi jail and being hungry each day, as they wait for our government to secretly ship them in the middle of the night to some unsuspecting community in our nation without giving the local authorities any notice.

Due to the fact that Beck’s latest stunt was so over the top and actually involved national security and a very serious issue like the sovereignty of our borders, Beck’s curtain was pulled back and he has been exposed to many of his blind followers for the lying ,con-artist, opportunist that he is. In his frustration, Beck ripped several politicians like fellow Mormon cult member Senator Mike Lee and one of his two sock puppets “Stu,” for being “pusses” in not joining him for his stunt on the border.

Those who did join him were bought and paid for by Beck. Judas Barton, a few Christian pastors who could care less about standing with a satan worshipping cult member as long as he writes them a check, and Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King who Beck pays to give him credibility with the black community and further his shtick as he often invokes the name of Martin Luther King as someone who he tries to model his life after.

Beck went on in his frustration to blast the media for not covering his circus, or covering it in a negative manner because they couldn’t understand his compassion and mercy for the “children.” In addition to ripping FOX News for not covering the event, he even ripped into his own propaganda news site “The Blaze” (where you can find each day positive stories about his Mormon cult), for its’ readers not showing enough support for his weekend charade at the border.

I love you and care about you so much. Probably the one thing Beck said in his anger at people who saw his border event for the scam it was that summed it up best, was when he was asked about those illegally crossing our border who were not children but older males and a legitimate threat to our national security. Beck stated, “Don’t focus on the MS-13 gang members, rapists and the killers. That’s for the government,” he said. “That’s for the government to do their job.”

Sadly, this tool of satan masquerading as an angel of light has now taken his con jobs to a new and dangerous level. In the past, his “events” were simply to promote and build his personal empire and net worth while advancing the efforts of his cult. In getting involved in an issue of national security, he has been exposed for the charlatan that he is. Never lose sight that Beck represents the greatest evil there is since Jesus warned the people to not worry about the one who can kill your body, worry about the one who can kill your soul!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,

Preparing to Celebrate 15 Year Anniversary of Liveprayer in Just 6 Weeks

Leave a comment

(John 3:16, 17)

ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, can you give me any idea of the meaning of Zech. 11:17?

ANSWER: Sadly, this is the description of the majority of pastors today. It talks about their worship of idols and forsaking their flocks. The Bible says those who are called to lead His sheep will receive a double judgment. It is a stark contrast to John 10, and the description of the Good Shepherd. Is it any wonder why the sheep are weak, ineffective, and sitting targets for satan’s schemes when the shepherds don’t do their job?

My friend, as we prepare to celebrate the 15 year anniversary of in just 6 weeks, I want you to know how much I love and care about you. Despite the trials and all that I’ve faced here at Liveprayer these many months, it has been an incredible and fulfilling time of my life. On August 31st, I am going to share with you not only my reflections of these past 15 years, but what God has showed me regarding the coming months of THIS YEAR.

After 15 years of faithful service online, the Lord has opened some incredible doors to give us the opportunity in the closing months of THIS YEAR to lead this once Godly nation back to our Creator and His truth!!!

I am asking you to do 3 things today. First, email me your prayer request for your greatest need today. I never forget that even though over 2.5 million people worldwide get this Daily Devotional each morning, each person is a special and unique creation of God, and each person is going through some issue, even in those calm periods of life. Email me your need today to: bkeller@liveprayer.com so that I can stand in agreement with you for that need.

Second, take 3 minutes, 180 seconds, and ask the Lord to give me the strength and wisdom I need, and bless His work here at Liveprayer as we prepare to fulfill our final work for our Savior and His Kingdom. You will never know how much I depend upon your prayers each day, as we take on satan without any hesitation or fear, and boldly share the uncompromised Word of God with the masses.

Third, please pray about making whatever sacrifce you can make to help me today. For 15 yrs, I have refused to allow God’s work here at Liveprayer to be turned into a marketing enterprise, selling books, bottled water, vitamins, and anything else you can imagine. We are here to minister to the daily needs of people, broadcast His Truth in the marketplace, and guide people to faith in Jesus. So every month for 15 years, I have walked by faith asking the Lord only for what we needed to operate that month, not a penny more, getting on my knees and praying in faith for the Lord to move on the hearts of those who could help me

Even though we have always struggled financially, never greater than in the last 5 years, we are still standing and still faithfully doing what we have done each day for 15 years now. It has been many dear friends like you over the years who has made that possible. Thank you so much! So many times at the most critical moment, the Lord has sent someone with a gift, sometimes it was $20,000, sometimes it was just $50, as a sign to this weak servant He was there and keeping watch over His work here at Liveprayer. That is why I trust Him daily with my entire life!

The only way I can say thank you or show my appreciation, is by waking up each morning and giving 100% of everything I have as I’ve done daily for the past 15 years, to be a blessing to you and those we reach daily though Liveprayer.

I have stood with so many of our friends in their darkest hours of life, as well as in those joyous times. Praying for and sometimes officiating a man and woman as they committed their lives to each other and God for life, blessing newborn babies, walking with those going through the pain of divorce, grieving with those who have lost loved one and friends, rejoicing with those who got a new job, believing with those who lost their job for a better one, asking the Lord to touch bodies that needed His healing touch, standing in agreement with those dealing with financial problems, praying with dear friends in their final days of this life, as well as praying with so many for the needs of day to day life we all face.

My life has been made complete by God granting me the joy of serving Him. However, nothing I have accomplished for the Lord would have been possible without the love, prayers, and sacrificial support of so many who enable me to be here each day for the millions worldwide we bring His Truth and hope to every 24 hours. THANK YOU!!!

***After needing the first several weeks of this month to cover the balance of the June shortfall, we are just 10 days from the end of the month. We have taken in $2,000 towards our basic monthly operational budget of $40,000 leaving us requiring $38,000 over these final days. $10,000 of that is from the first week of the month and is past due, so please pray and seek the Lord what He is calling YOU to do to help God’s work here at Liveprayer to end the month with our internet operations budget current!!!

—>If you have the ability to wire or overnight that $10,000 we desperately need to cover from the first week of the month, or if you bank at Wells Fargo and can simply deposit the funds into our account today, that would help me a great deal. I am praying and believing God for at least one person to hear His voice and help me insure this critical need is met. If the Lord is speaking to your heart and you can help me, please email me at: bkeller@liveprayer.com

CHICAGO TV!!! God sent a special friend several weeks ago to enable us to send a good faith payment on our overdue balance to the Chicago TV station so the program would remain on the air. As we are into our 6th month airing in the Chicago market, we are seeing more and more people sacrificing to help us with every passing month. If we can simply get through this first year, we will have all of the support we need each month from our viewers in that market.

Two new friends of God’s work here at Liveprayer in Chicago came together to help insure the $6,000 payment we were required to make last week was met! PRAISE GOD!!! We are still over a month behind in paying for the airtime and below is our payment schedule from the Chicago stations for the balance of July that is required to keep Liveprayer on the air in the Chicagoland market. Please pray over this schedule and seek the Lord about allowing Him to use YOU to help me insure we continue to be able to reach the 10 million people in the greater Chicagoland market “live” every Mon-Fri from 11pm-1am CDT. —>Due Monday July 14th/$6,000 —>Due Friday July 25th/$22,00 —>Due Friday august 1st/$22,00

*I NEED FOUR FRIENDS TO STEP UP AND HELP ME THIS WEEK WITH A SPECIAL ONE-TIME GIFT OF $5,500 TO INSURE OUR NEXT PAYMENT OF $22,000 THIS FRIDAY IS TAKEN CARE OF. PLEASE PRAY, AND IF YOU HAVE THE FUNDS AVAILABLE, ALLOW GOD TO USE YOU TO SEND A SPECIAL ONE-TIME GIFT OF $5,500 TO INSURE WE CAN SEND THIS CRITICAL PAYMENT FRIDAY, LEAVING ONE FINAL $22,000 PAYMENT FRIDAY AUGUST 1ST TO HAVE OUR ACCOUNT CURRENT!!!

Please pray with me for the $38,000 we require for the balance of our July internet operations, and $44,000 to get our TV airtime current. I am standing in faith that over these next 10 days, God will deliver the $82,000 we require for our critical daily ministry operations so we can head into the month of August current! If everyone will pray and “gives according to their ability to give,” it will insure by the end of the month the $82,000 we require for our basic ministry operations are current!!!

Who Will You Serve This Day

Leave a comment

(Judges 13:24, 14:3, 16:1, 16:21, 16:30)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, how best can a Believer best disciple a new Believer? What do you reckommend that a Christian do as far as coaching a new Believer?

ANSWER: If there is one thing the church lacks it is discipleship. It is critical, since once a person accepts Jesus, unless someone shows them the way, how will they know what to do? Discipleship is about a special relationship. The key to that relationship is accountability. For a new Believer, you need to spend time with them to help them understand they need to read the Bible and pray every day. They need to get into a good Bible teaching, Bible preaching church. They need to get into a good Bible study. We grow as fast as we are able based on the time and effort we put into our new relationship with the Lord. To disciple somone, you don’t need to be a Bible scholar, there are many out there to answer the difficult quesitons. You DO need to be committed to this relationship and helping guide the new convert in their DAILY walk.

No matter long you have been saved, no matter how greatly God is using your life, the fact is that we each wake up in the morning and face the choice of who we will serve that day. I have used the life of Samson in various opportunities that I have had over my years in the ministry when I was speaking to pastors or men’s groups. But Samson’s life is very applicable for this message today, in regards to the choices that you will make today and every day, as to exactly WHO you will serve.

Samson was miraculously born to a mother who was unable to conceive a child. He was dedicated to God’s service even before he was conceived. While many may scoff at this, I have known many women who were unable to have children, but after much prayer and seeking God, their once barren womb brought forth life! Just in the short 30 months Liveprayer has been on line, we have had two such births that I can recall off of the top of my head. Samson was dedicated to the Lord’s service, grew up being taught all about God, and the Bible says that the Spirit of God was upon his life.

One of the points that I want to stress today is that here was a man, dedicated to God even before he was conceived, raised in the “church” of his day, and had a heart so close to God that the Bible even says God’s Spirit was upon him. DESPITE THIS, SAMSON, JUST LIKE YOU AND I, WOKE UP EVERY MORNING AND HAD TO MAKE CHOICES THROUGHOUT THE DAY WHO HE WOULD SERVE!

The Bible says that the devil comes to kill, steal, and destroy. If you have accepted Christ into your heart by faith, the Bible says that you are saved (John 3:16; Romans 10:10; Ephesians 2:8-9). However, even though the devil can’t have your eternal soul, he can destroy your life, steal the joy, peace, and abundance Jesus promised those who followed Him would know during our brief journey here, and kill us literally.

I have known many great men and women of God over the years, who allowed sin in their life to consume them to the point of death. One dear brother got into the bondage of drug addiction and died from an overdose. One pastor I know looked to alcohol instead of the Lord in times of trouble, and alcohol eventually destroyed his life, and he died much earlier then he should have because of it. One sister, who did many great things for God, allowed the enemy to throw her into a state of depression to the point that she took her own life.

SATAN IS NOT THE CLASS CLOWN, SOME MISCHIEVOUS PARTY ANIMAL THAT LOVES TO HAVE FUN. SATAN IS A VERY REAL ENEMY WHO PLAYS FOR KEEPS AND IS OUT TO DESTROY THE LIFE OF THE CHILD OF GOD, STEAL ALL OF THE GOOD THINGS THAT THIS LIFE CAN OFFER, AND LITERALLY HELP YOU MAKE CHOICES THAT WILL KILL YOU! HE IS NOT PLAYING GAMES!

As you read through the life of Samson, as he went through life, he chose to turn from God and serve the enemy. Samson knew how God felt about being unequally yoked with nonbelievers. Samson knew God’s plan for marriage. Samson knew God forbids sex outside of marriage. Yet Samson’s weakness was women, women who did not know or honor God in their life.

The enemy is persistent. He will tempt the child of God over and over and over until he finds the weakness in their life. Samson’s weakness was women. Each day, just like you and me, he had to choose who he would serve that day. As much as the anointing of God was on his life, even though he served God in miraculous ways, even though God used him to bless many, IT WAS SAMSON WHO HAD TO MAKE THE CHOICE EACH DAY WHOM HE WOULD SERVE.

Over and over, Samson chose sin over God. Over and over, God showed his love and grace to Samson and gave him chances to straighten his life out. But Samson took God’s grace and mercy for granted, refused to turn from his sin, and it was his sin that ultimately destroyed his life, stole all of the blessings God had for him, and ultimately killed him.

Let me encourage you today. If you have chosen to serve sin, have allowed things to enter into your life that God does not approve of, TODAY is the day that you can stop. Is it that easy? NO WAY! It will be the hardest thing that you have ever done. But if you take the first step, God will strengthen you and help you to turn away from sin, and back to Him.

THE CHOICE THAT YOU MAKE TODAY COULD LITERALLY SAVE YOUR LIFE, BUT IT IS A CHOICE THAT YOU MUST MAKE. NOBODY CAN MAKE IT FOR YOU.

I love you and care for you so much. God loves you and cares for you even more. Each day, He gives you the choice to love Him and serve Him. Even those who have loved Him and served Him for many years, STILL each day must make that choice. I pray today that you learn from Samson’s life and choose God.

Each day I get hundreds of emails from people all over the world, saying that what I write is intolerant, it isn’t for “today”, that there is nothing wrong with doing what we want. They simply don’t understand that God loves us SO MUCH, that He sent His word to encourage us and guide us along our journey here. How He shows us to live our life is not to keep us from enjoying our life, but to know the peace, joy, and abundance that this life can offer.

God loves us enough to give us the free will to choose each day whether we will serve Him or not. That is a choice that I will make today, and it is a choice that YOU will make today. My prayer today is that you will choose to serve God!!!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

You Fool! This Very Night Your Life Will Be Demanded from You

Leave a comment

(Luke 12:16-21)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, as a Born Again Christian, I can’t find it in myself to love someone like Barack Obama, who is destroying everything that God has given this great country. This also pertains to the Clinton’s and many on the left along with the Muslims who want to kill us. Please give me advice to correct this problem.

ANSWER: We are commanded to pray for those in authority. We pray daily here at Liveprayer for the salvation of Pres. Obama and all those in leadership. Only in the strength of the Holy Spirit are we able to pray for those who stand against us. Jesus gave us the perfect example as He prayed for those who crucified Him from the very cross he was to die on! Never forget, He died for the souls of ALL men. I will help guide you with this. As anti-God as much of the political policies are, it is ultimately the church/Christians who are responsible for the spiritual state of our nation, like it was the priests in the OT responsible for the rebellion to God that brought out His wrath and punishment many times.

We all get so bogged down in the day-to-day activities of life, that we can lose sight of the big picture. One of the goals I have each day is to help you stay focused on that “big picture.” The ultimate “American dream” for many is to win several million dollars, buy a huge home, new cars, quit your job. But what do you do after that? That becomes the big question. When you have all of those things that you ever dreamed of, when you have accomplished all of the things you strive for then what?

In today’s scripture, we read about a man who could have easily been living in the year 2006. Obviously very talented. Obviously very goal oriented. He had his plan, he followed it through, and he achieved everything he wanted. But soon after that, the Lord says, “You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you.”

“And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man produced a good crop. He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’ “Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.” ‘ “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’ ” (Luke 12:16-21)

You see my friend, this Devotional in no way is meant to tell you that your goals are not important. It is in no way meant to tell you that you should not strive to have the best things that this life can offer. There is nothing wrong with that at all. What I am trying to get you to hear today is that you MUST keep your goals prioritized and in perspective. To simply let your goal be “get all I can now” is a bad goal.

The Bible says, “What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, yet lose his soul?” That of course is for an unsaved person who wants everything, but eventually must realize that there is an eternal life when this one is over, where all of those things you accomplish and gain in this life have no meaning. That is just as true for the Christian. While we work on our earthly goals, we MUST keep focused on, and never lose sight of, our eternal goals.

Those things that we gain in this life will be gone the instant our life is over and we pass into eternity. At that point, the ONLY thing that matters is our personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I have said it often, and will continue to remind you of this fact. The ONLY thing we take from this life into eternity is our personal relationship with Christ.

That is why I harp constantly on our intimate, daily walk with Him. We do that through the Word and through prayer. At that instant when this life ends, that personal relationship with Christ is all that will matter. With that being the case, why do we spend so much time on striving to accomplish things in this world that will one day be meaningless, and so little time on our walk with Christ which one day will be all that we have?

I love you and care about you so very much. Each day I do my best to share my heart with you and allow God to pour through me meaningful things that will help you in your daily life. My challenge for you today is to not get so focused on the goals of this world, that you lose sight of your eternal goals. Work just as hard on your relationship with Christ as you do in your day to day work here on earth. Don’t let the things of this temporary world consume you to the point that you miss the eternal goals we all should be working on.

We need to be careful. The media, our culture, pushes us daily to “have it all.” We get so consumed with that message that we forget we can never have it all, unless we have Jesus. The greatest goals that we can have are not our earthly goals, but our Heavenly goals!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller is Vindicated by the Federal Government of all Entities

(Romans 1:25; Romans 1:18-32; Deuteronomy 28:7; 1 Timothy 1:18, 6:12; 2 Timothy 2:4; Ephesians 6:12)

***ASK BILL: With each day’s current events now, it seams to me God’s judgment on this nation has already begun and is picking up speed quickly. Am I right

ANSWER: 100%! I warned people in late 2007, that 2008 would begin the very clear and visible judgment of God on this nation. In the early months we had the housing bubble burst costing people trillions of dollars of equity in their homes. Late in the year, the nation elected a true enemy of God to be our President. With each passing year, the signs have continued, and the fragile state of this nation becomes more evident. However, these is one answer, one hope, and that is to have a “Nineveh moment” by repenting, turning back to God and His Truth, and stay His hand of judgment of a season while seeing a great harvest of souls!

Bill Keller is vindicated by the Federal Government of all entities and an award for courage given to a man who publicly declared he CHOOSES to engage in perverted sexual acts with other men!!! For these past 15 years of Liveprayer, I have exposed for you and been trying to refute the LIE propagated by the pro-homosexual community that 10% of the population chooses to engage in unnatural, unhealthy, and perverted sex acts with members of the same sex.

Well, the CDC (Center for Disease Control) has published a large and current survey of what percentage of the population considers themselves “gay,” “lesbian,” “bisexual,” or “transgendered.” That percentage is NOT 10%, but under TWO PERCENT as I have been telling you and the nation for the past 22 yrs, 15 yrs here at Liveprayer.com and 10 yrs on TV!

There has also been an explosion of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases within the community of those who choose to engage in perverted sex with people of the same sex. Medical experts are encouraging that blood from those in that community NOT be used for the public at all! That is why this choice is not only unnatural but UNHEALTHY!

Sadly, I am about done with the one thing in life I have loved since my childhood and that is sports. ESPN, on its annual awards program called the ESPYS, gave its annual “Courage Award” to NFL rookie Michael Sam. What courageous thing did Sam do? He told the public that he chooses to engage in perverted sex with other men!!!

If you remember, ESPN had to show over and over and over this confused football player Michael Sam who played at Missouri, kissing his “boyfriend” on the lips after being drafted in the last round of the NFL draft by the St. Louis Rams. Don Jones, a player on the Miami Dolphins was rightfully offended and sent a “tweet” that it was “horrible.” Jones was fined, suspended, and ordered to take “sensitivity classes!”

So in the year 2014, you can speak openly and publicly about any kind of sin or rebellious conduct you can dream up, but if you oppose sin and speak up for Biblical Truth you are shunned, ostracized, and treated like you have leprosy!!!

The United States is a modern day Sodom and Gomorrah, and if God doesn’t judge this nation for embracing the perversion of homosexuality, even to the point we have legally re-defined God’s Holy Institution of Marriage and the Family, He owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology!!! The pro-homosexual lobby has successfully forced society to validate legally and ethically their choice of perverted sexual behavior and relationships, and to enact laws that allow them to promote this sinful choice even to children as normal, even desirable behavior!!!

Let me say right up front, sin is sin in God’s eyes. No sin is greater than another. The sin of homosexuality is no more, or no less a sin than murder, adultery, stealing, lying, gossiping, or gluttony. THE REASON THIS SIN IS BEING SINGLED OUT AND ADDRESSED IS BECAUSE THOSE WHO COMMIT IT, ARE PROUD OF THEIR SIN AND PROMOTE IT AS AN ACCEPTABLE LIFESTYLE!

People who commit adultery do NOT have parades to celebrate their sin. People who commit murder do NOT have political action committees to make murder legal and socially acceptable. People who steal do not have high school clubs and try to teach children that stealing is acceptable behavior. Homosexuality is a SIN in the eyes of God and is something to be ashamed of, NOT proud of!!!

Look at what has happened in this nation recently! HGTV, owned by Scripps Networks Interactive, Inc. that also owns The Food Network, The Cooking Channel, The Travel Channel, and Great American Country, cancelled a new real estate program scheduled to start airing this fall hosted by real estate entrepreneurs the Benham Brothers, who are also committed Christians and take a Biblical stand on the sin of homosexuality and gay marriage. The pressure began with a small homosexual advocacy group and the executives at HGTV didn’t even blink before quickly announcing the new program was going to be cancelled!

As amazing as God’s timing always is, within 24 hours of that event NBC, one of the four major TV networks that is owned by broadcasting/cable giant Comcast, announced they would airing a program this fall created by gay activist Ellen Degeneres with all of the main characters portraying lesbians. This simply continues the “mainstreaming” of this choice of sexual perversion with people of the same sex that less than 2% of the population engages in.

A small cable network in apx. 50 million homes cancels a program that was going to have NOTHING to do with Christianity other than the brothers who host the program are followers of Jesus Christ, while the NBC Network in 90 million homes gives gay activist Ellen DeGeneres a huge platform in prime time to promote perverted sexuality to the entire nation!!!

Recently, a Florida man has filed suit to legally marry his computer! I told you years ago, once they began to re-define marriage, where do you stop? His justification is that if gays are allowed to marry then so should other sexual minorities! I remember people telling me I was crazy 8 or 9 years ago when I stated on the Liveprayer TV program I was going to marry a duck.

Simply take all of the same arguments people of the same sex make to justify their getting married to someone of the same sex and now that it is legal in 25% of the states who can argue? Men marrying men, women marrying women, is just as sick and perverted as a man marrying his computer or his duck!!!

I love you and care about you so much. THE GREATEST PROBLEM IN OUR NATION TODAY IS THE DESTRUCTION OF MARRIAGE AND THE FAMILY. Marriage ordained by God always will be one man, one woman, for one lifetime no matter how man tries to re-define it! God’s definition of family is a man and woman that are married and the children that are born into that Godly union. We have literally watched marriage and the family become perverted and destroyed over the past 40 years.

The destruction of marriage and the family will be the ultimate destruction of our society. THAT is why this issue is so critical, because it destroys the union of a man and woman and their children as God intended it to be…THE VERY FOUNDATION OF OUR SOCIETY!!

The church better wake up and realize that while they have been building great buildings and getting fat, satan has been busy using the sin of homosexuality to destroy marriage and the family. We live in a free society. If people who have chosen to engage in homosexual activity want to have their own schools, their own churches, their own television network, they have every right to. It is about time the church wakes up and realizes that those who promote this sin are bold and are stopping at NOTHING to get their message out to the masses.

THAT is why I am always talking about how the church, those who know Christ as their Savior, have got to quit preaching to the choir and start taking the hope and love of Christ to the world at large. As those who follow Christ, we also have a responsibility to pray for those who are in this bondage, for God to open their hearts to the truth of His Word, and to turn from their sin. Only God can change hearts, and for those who are in bondage to the sin of homosexuality, we must pray for them to open their hearts and turn from their sin.

Until Jesus returns, we will always have those who choose a perverted form of sex with those of their own gender, just like we will always have those who choose to pervert sex by having it outside of the bonds of marriage. While we can never accept their choice since it is clearly against God’s Word, we must pray for them, just like we must pray for everyone who is battling sin in their life. We also must pray for this nation to turn back to God and His Truth before His wrath and judgment is unleashed and we end up like Sodom and Gomorrah!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller
