New Age Books

Leave a comment

(Proverbs 22:6; 1 Timothy 4:1-2; 2 Timothy 4:3)

There are two very popular books called “Conversations With God” and “Conversations With God For Teens,” both written by Neale Donald Walsch. From the titles, they sound like something that you would want to read, especially since they are on the New York Times bestseller list. However, there is an old saying that you can’t judge a book by its cover. That is more true today than ever before. You see, there is only ONE God, and that is the God of the Bible. I have no idea what “god” Neale Donald Walsch had his conversations with, but it was NOT the God of the Bible. These books are an abomination to God since they go against everything that He says in His Word. RUN FROM THESE BOOKS! THESE ARE NOT CONVERSATIONS WITH THE GOD OF THE BIBLE!

I first warned those in the Liveprayer family about these books in 2003!!! However, they have become very popular because the queen of the “spiritual crack” dealers, Oprah, is now pushing them. After finding great success pushing the New Age agenda over the years on her TV program, New Age witch Oprah Winfrey is now clearly committing her vast resources to lead millions of unsuspecting souls to hell selling them the “spiritual crack” of the day, New Age teachings. Just like crack, these false teachings make people feel good for a moment but lead them on a path of destruction.

There are three very important points that I want to make today. First, just because someone uses the word “god”, it does NOT mean they are talking about the God of the Bible. There is clearly only ONE God, and He has made Himself known to us through the Bible. That is why it is clear that the god Neale Donald Walsch had his conversations with is not GOD. That is why it is clear that the god of the Mormon Church is not GOD. That is why it is clear that the god Miss Cleo spoke to was not GOD. That is why it is clear that the Allah of the Muslims is not GOD. That is why it is clear that the god “dead-talker” John Edwards speaks to is not GOD. It is VERY IMPORTANT to not simply assume that when someone uses the name “god,” they are talking about the God of the Bible.

The second point is that you have to be very careful what you see and hear. I often use the computer adage “garbage in, garbage out,” though I prefer my modification, “God in, God out.” There is so much “mental pollution” out in the world that we are exposed to every day. That is why reading and studying the Bible is so critical, so that you can identify what is of God, and what is opposed to God. This is also a warning to parents that you have to be EXTREMELY AWARE of what is out there for your children to be exposed to. You have every right, and responsibility to censor what you allow in your home, but censor it with an explanation of why so that as they get older they can make that same quality decision for themselves.

You must take the TIME to talk to your children about what is in our popular culture like books, movies, television, music, magazines, video games, and everything else that they are exposed to on a daily basis. You need to put what they see and hear into a Biblical context so that they can understand what God says, and why something can be good or harmful to their life.

The third point is that we MUST, as those who accept the Bible as God’s inspired, inerrant Word, as ABSOLUTE TRUTH and our final authority in all matters, take that TRUTH to the world in which we live in. There is a circular trough that is made up of the church, Christian television, Christian radio, Christian books, Christian magazines, and many Christian ministries. THEY ALL FEED OUT OF THAT SAME TROUGH. They all target the same people, those who are already in the church. Why? Maintenance. Self-perpetuation. Money. Safety. Fear of rejection. The sad fact is, the majority of the people who desperately need to hear of the hope and love of Christ are OUTSIDE OF THAT TROUGH!

Those who oppose the work of God understand this fact, and take their message directly to the masses to find those who are hurting, lost, and looking for hope. That is where the cults like the Mormons, the JW’s, and the Scientologists take their message. That is where the false religions of the world like the Muslims, the Buddhists, the satanists, and the New Agers take their message. While Christians are sitting back in the comfort of their churches, conferences, crusades, and media organizations, preaching to the choir and trading dollars amongst themselves, those who are outside of the “trough,” hurting and desperate for a message of hope, are being lured in by those who worship false gods and lead like sheep to the slaughter. The lie thrives because the people who possess the TRUTH don’t take their message to the masses outside of the trough!

I love you and care about you so much. I pray today that you become more aware that everyone proclaiming the name of “god” is NOT always talking about the God of the Bible. We must be very aware of what we hear and see, since there is so much in this world that can damage our lives. This is especially true with our children. There is so much unGodly content available in the world today, that parents must be diligent in not only knowing what their children are being exposed to, but helping them understand how to make Godly choices.

Lastly, those who know the TRUTH of God’s Word, have got to become more bold and creative in taking that TRUTH to the world at large, the world outside the four walls of the church. Not only has God commanded us to do this, but we can’t allow those who represent the false gods of this world to take good people and lead them into eternal damnation. There is only ONE GOD, the GOD OF THE BIBLE!

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

The Pain that Comes During this Journey We are On

Leave a comment

(Matthew 11:28-30; 1 Peter 5:7)

This message applies to every single person who is reading this right now. It doesn’t matter how old you are, whether you are a man or a woman, what your skin color is, what nationality you are, how much money you have or don’t have, this is a universal message that is applicable to everyone. You see, nobody that has lived very long in this sin-filled and evil world has escaped the trials and tribulations of this life and not experienced some sort of pain. EVERYONE reading this Devotional knows the pain that comes from time to time during this journey we are on.

For some, that pain was experienced in your childhood through mental, physical, or sexual abuse. Some have experienced that pain later in life through failed relationships, many through being divorced. Everyone has lived through the pain of the death of a loved one. Many of you have experienced the pain of financial hardships. Others have lived through the pain of losing your job or other employment and career issues. Sadly, some have lived through the experience of being a crime victim. Everyone has experienced the pain from making poor choices at some point in their life. Most have had to experience the pain of some bondage such as alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex, food, money, shopping, lying, or a myriad of other bondages that people get caught up in.

NOT ONE PERSON READING THIS HAS NOT HAD TO LIVE THROUGH THE PAIN THAT COMES FROM LIVING THIS LIFE HERE ON EARTH.

Today, I want to share a word with you that could be one of the most important things anyone has ever told you. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO KEEP LIVING WITH WHATEVER PAIN YOU HAVE FROM YOUR PAST. Let me repeat that, because I really want you to hear these words clear. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO KEEP LIVING WITH WHATEVER PAIN YOU HAVE FROM YOUR PAST. If you are, that is only because you have CHOSEN to live with that pain!

The fact is, God has made a way through faith in His Son for you to put the pain of your past behind you and live your life in freedom. Jesus has told us to give Him our burdens, that He would carry them for us. The Bible tells us to cast our cares on Him, because He cares for us. You see, God doesn’t expect you to carry the pain of your past with you each day. He wants you live FREE from your past so that you can enjoy the abundance that this life has to offer.

Just hours before going to the cross, Jesus told His disciples that in this world, they would experience trials and tribulations. But He told them to “be of good cheer” because HE has overcome this world. You see my friend, trials and tribulation are part of this human experience, but God has made a way through His Son for us to still enjoy the abundance that this life can offer despite those trials and tribulations.

The only reason you are carrying the pain of your past with you today is because you have chosen to believe the LIE instead of the TRUTH. Jesus tells us in John 8:44 that satan is a liar. He is the “father of lies.” When he speaks, he speaks his native language, lying! God on the other hand is TRUTH. The Word of God is TRUTH. The lie of satan is that you have to carry the pain of your past around with you each day like a 1,000 pound anchor around your neck. The truth from God is that you can take that pain of your past and give it to Jesus. HE WILL GLADLY TAKE THAT 1,000 POUND ANCHOR FROM YOU TODAY!!!

I love you and care about you so much. Everyone reading this Devotional today has experienced some of the pain that this life offers. So many of you have never let go of that pain and have simply learned how to live your life each day with that pain. Because of that, you are missing the fullness of the joy, peace, and abundance that this life can offer. Because of that, you are not completely fulfilling your purpose in this life which is to serve and glorify God with your life. Because of that, you are not living in total freedom and victory each day.

Right now, this very moment, I want you to stop whatever you are doing. If you are at home, at work, at school, it doesn’t matter. Stop whatever you are doing right now and pray this prayer.

“Dear Father, I thank you for this day. I know that today was not promised to me, but it is a gift from You. Dear God, You know the pain I have today from what has happened in my life. I am tired of carrying this pain with me day after day. It is robbing me of my joy, of my peace, of knowing the abundance that this life can offer. I trust Your Word today that tells me that I can give this burden to You, that You will take it from me. I trust Your Word today that tells me to cast my cares on You, because You care for me. In the name of Jesus, I give You the pain of my past today. In the name of Jesus, I surrender it to You. Take it from me, and fill me right now with Your joy, with Your peace, and let me live from this day forward in FREEDOM FROM MY PAST! In Jesus name I pray, AMEN!”

I will be praying for you today my friend. God loves you SO MUCH! He cares about you SO MUCH! We live in an evil and sin-filled world. Because of that, we all will experience pain in this life, but God has made a way so that we do not have to carry that pain around with us for the rest of our days. He has offered to carry it for us, to take it from us. I pray today that you will trust Him and give Him the pain of your past and live in FREEDOM from this day forward!

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

The Greatest Concern I have about Society is the Failure to Accept that Absolute Truth Exists

Leave a comment

( John 8:32; 2 Thessalonians 2:10)

My friend, one of the greatest concerns that I have about our society, is the failure to accept the fact that ABSOLUTE TRUTH exists. Life is NOT gray, it is black and white. It is either the truth, or it is a lie. That begs the question, where do we find ABSOLUTE TRUTH? Society will tell you that each person should each be able to determine for themselves what truth is.

That sounds wonderful, but practically speaking can’t ever work. Why? Well, what I feel is right, someone else might look at as wrong. What I think is wrong, someone else may think is right. To allow each one of us to determine for ourselves what truth is, can NEVER work since the standard for each one of us would be different.

That is why the ONLY source for ABSOLUTE TRUTH is God. God took the effort to give us His inspired, inerrant Word. That is where we find ABSOLUTE TRUTH. God also gave each one of us freewill. That means we are free to believe whatever we want. But what one person chooses to believe will not change or alter the TRUTH of God found in the Bible. It is immutable, never changing. It is the foundation, the bedrock on which we can live our very lives.

Again, you are free to accept of reject what God says in the Bible. Why do you think those who make choices in rebellion to the truth of God’s Word will ALWAYS dismiss the Bible as just a book of stories written by men who use it for their own purposes? Those who rebel against God have to deny His Word, or admit that they are wrong.

It is critical for each one of those who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior to stand up for the truth of God’s word in your day to day life. God has called us to be the defenders of His truth. Don’t be afraid to call sin sin. People will mock you, laugh at you, call you names, even strike you, but that will not change the truth.

We live in a time when the LIE is glorified, proclaimed boldly every way imaginable, and told enough times that people actually begin to accept the lie as the truth. Yet we, the people of faith, the people who possess the ABSOLUTE TRUTH of God’s Word, meekly and passively sit by, watching, keeping our mouths shut, satisfied going into our churches on Sunday and locking the doors so nobody will hear us!!!!

I WANT TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TODAY TO CHALLENGE EACH PERSON WHO READS THESE WORDS TODAY TO PRAY TO GOD, AND ASK HIM FOR COURAGE, BOLDNESS, AND OPPORTUNITIES TO BE ABLE TO SHARE WITH OTHERS THE TRUTH OF HIS WORD!!!

You don’t have to preach to do this, simply live your day to day life in an uncompromising way that lets the lost and hurting around you know your life is different. You don’t buy into the lies of this world. You don’t fall into the traps so many do because you are armed with the TRUTH. And when those opportunities present themselves, boldly speak up and let people know what God says!

I love you and care about you so much! God doesn’t call us to think for people. God doesn’t call us to save anyone. We can’t do that. What we CAN DO is share the truth of His Word with others, that is our job. What they choose to do with that truth, then becomes an issue for them and God.

ALSO, I KNOW MANY PASTORS READ THIS DEVOTIONAL EACH DAY. TO MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS WHO GOD HAS CALLED TO DO HIS WORK AND BE GENERALS IN HIS ARMY, LET ME SAY THAT I UNDERSTAND THE TRIALS THAT YOU FACE EACH DAY. BUT THE ONE THING THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE TO GOD IS COMPROMISE. HEAR THIS WORD FROM HIM TODAY! IN ALL THAT YOU DO, THE ONE THING THAT YOU MUST NEVER DO, IS COMPROMISE THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH OF HIS WORD. TELL IT LOUD, TELL CLEAR, TELL IT BOLDLY, TELL IT WITH LOVE, AND NEVER COMPROMISE THE TRUTH OF HIS HOLY WORD!

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

There are Many Great and Precious Promises in the Bible

Leave a comment

(Mark 10:27)

There are many great and precious promises in the Bible. In the Book of John Chapters 14, 15 and 16 we are told by the Lord that God will give us what we ask for in the name of Jesus. In Matthew chapter 7 we are told to “Ask, and it shall be given you.” The 37th Psalm tells us that He will give us the “desires of our heart.”

Today, I want to give you a promise in the Bible that will literally transform your life. They are 6 words spoken by Jesus that can make all the difference in your life this very moment. Individually, they are just 6 common words. But put together as they were by our Lord, they give us one of the greatest promises we have in God’s Word. This is YOUR promise today!

“ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD.” (Mark 10:27)

That means if you are sick in your body, God can heal you! That means if you need a financial miracle, God is your source! That means if your marriage is in trouble, God can restore it! That means if you need a job, God can open the doors for employment! That means if you are in some form of bondage, God can set you free! That means if your children are away from God, God can bring them home! That means if you have lost a loved one, God can ease the pain! No matter what your need is today, God is able to meet that need!

YOUR promise today is 6 words from Jesus, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD!

I want you to take a moment right now, and pray about the most important thing you need from God today. There is not one person who is reading this that doesn’t need something from God. If you could ask God for anything, anything at all, what would it be? The fact is, you CAN ask God for anything, you have been told in His Word to ask for anything, so now it is time.

I want you to focus on the one thing that you want from God and pray this simple prayer. “Dear God, I know that your Word is true, and I believe today that all things are possible with You. I want (insert here the one thing you want from God). In Jesus name, AMEN!”

I love you and care about you so much. Now is the time to make your faith real and believe God’s Word. There is nothing wrong in your life today that God can’t fix. I want you to know that I will be standing in agreement with you for the one thing that you have asked God for today. I am believing with you for that need you prayed for to be met. Remember God’s promise for you today, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD!

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

There is No Time Left, We Must Act Now

Leave a comment

(Jonah 3:10)

There is no time left, we must act now! I have never been closer to the Lord, more “plugged in” to God, than these last 18 months. I have openly shared with you how God told me during the last few months of 2007 that the year 2008 was going to be the most critical year in 6,000 years of human history, and by far the most critical year in the short 232 year history of the United States. Early in 2008 I shared what proved to be a very prophetic word with you as I made the case how God could easily judge this nation for its sins and wickedness through the economy.

I began telling you in 2007 that our next President would be no friend of God. In November of 2008 we not only elected an enemy of God to the Presidency, but a thoroughly wicked man who opposes God on every major spiritual issue of our day, while looking to destroy this nation from within like no outside force ever could with his socialist philosophy. One day next week I will make the case how we can easily see the rise of the anti-Christ, the reality of a one-world government, economy, and religion at any time. The rest of the world has been ripe for a while, with the United States being a major hurdle in seeing the Book of Revelation fulfilled. While President Obama is NOT the anti-Christ, he is certainly a tool satan is using to help set the stage for the rise of the anti-Christ.

Last September, the smoke and mirrors that is our economy was exposed. Just like when Toto pulled back the curtain to expose the “Wizard of Oz” at the end of that classic movie, the decades of inflated prices and debt in all major sectors of the United States economy and in economies around the world were laid bare for all to see. It forced the US government, as well as most major nations, to step in to keep the entire economic system from collapsing. In the wake has been tens of millions of real people who have seen a major percentage of their hard earned savings lost while millions are out of work. It is a crisis that has, is, and will continue, to affect everyone, rich and poor alike.

I have done all that I can over the past 6 months to help people understand that while we are in the midst of an economic crisis, the root cause is a spiritual crisis. God is judging this nation for our sins and wickedness, and this is just the beginning of His wrath being poured out on our nation. I have tried to warn people for years that just like God’s patience eventually ran out when the children of Israel rebelled, so His patience has run out on the US due to our rebellion.

We have forsaken God for the false gods and idols of this world, we legally slaughter 4,000 innocent babies every 24 hours, we have perverted God’s Holy Institutions of marriage and the family, and have sinned against God in every way imaginable. His judgment wasn’t just due, it has been long overdue.

In addition to reaching over 2.4 million people daily through the Daily Devotional and our main website Liveprayer.com that is approaching our 10 year anniversary, the 6-year-old Liveprayer TV and radio program that airs “live” every Mon-Fri from l1p-Midnight EDT, available to the world through Liveprayer.com, as well as on major secular stations, last July, 60 days before the economic crisis hit, the Lord led me to start the Jonah Project ( http://www.liveprayer.com/jonah ), a move to lead this nation back to God and Biblical Truth.

The Lord also led me to create the LivePrayer Church (
http://www.liveprayerchurch.com ) last October, a 21st century online Cathedral to bring people worldwide a Biblically sound church home. Last December, we launched our cell phone outreach ( http://www.m.liveprayer.com ) to literally be able to invade people’s lives anywhere in the world on a device hundreds of millions of people carry with them daily. All of this daily content is made available for FREE!

God has allowed Liveprayer to develop all of these cutting edge technology tools to literally reach the world 24/7/365. Despite the existence of many ministries with millions of dollars, huge staffs, there has not been one major Christian leader who is taking this mantle of leadership to lead our nation back to God and Biblical Truth while helping the lost come to faith in Christ. God has challenged me to step up and lead His people during this critical time and that is what I am doing today.

From a corporate structure, as of April 1st, the LivePrayer Church is acquiring all of the assets and debts of Bill Keller Ministries, Inc. and Liveprayer Productions, inc. We currently have apx $1.4 million in debt, $600k of that being debt from monthly shortfalls from the TV/radio program, and the last $800k of the $1.2 million we borrowed to establish the TV program on the Internet in preparation for all of broadcasting to be using that platform in the very near future which has put us far ahead of most everyone in that world. The economic crisis has dramatically cut advertising budgets, and the projections we and everyone else made have been severely thrown off.

From April 1 thru the end of the year we will have $700k in operating expenses for all of our ministry operations, and we need $900k, or $100k a month, for the syndication of the TV and radio programs into national cable and radio networks to expand that important nightly outreach to reach the masses in the marketplace.

So that is a total of $3 million we need to raise in the last 9 months of 2009. That breaks down to roughly $345k a month. Our normal monthly giving base is right at $45k a month, so I need to raise $300k a month for the last 9 nine months of this year. Today, I am asking 300 people to step up and make the commitment and sacrifice of $1,000 a month for the next 9 months. I realize that this is a huge commitment for many. For others, you might be able to commit $2,000, $3,000, $5,000, even $10,000 a month.

That will pay off 100% of the debt of the ministry, keep all of our current operations going strong, and allow us to create a base of several million people in the Jonah Project so that we can make our voice heard and lead this nation back to God and His Truth, while helping lost souls find faith in Jesus Christ.

I have literally given my life to the Lord’s work these past 20 years. For nearly 10 years now, I have labored 7 days a week, mostly 16-18 hour days, as Liveprayer has been used to impact tens of millions of lives worldwide. I have literally given every ounce of my time, talent, and treasure to serve the Lord. My wife and I live in a modest home that is currently worth $250k with a $305k mortgage. Both of our cars have over 100,000 miles on them. We don’t have any 401k or retirement plans. We literally live our lives daily for the Lord’s work here and have sacrificed all we have to serve Him.

I realize that we have an asset 100 organizations would buy in a second, and that is our email database. It is worth a minimum of $4 million, and could go as high as $6 million. I have been tempted often to simply shut down Liveprayer, sell the data base, pay off our existing debt, pay myself a nice salary, write a few books, do some speaking engagements, and live a normal life again. To be very honest with you, I am tempted to do that about 10x a day, more on some days. Many have called me crazy for NOT doing just that.

HOW CAN I TAKE THE EASY ROAD, BE SO SELFISH, WHEN I KNOW THE ONLY HOPE FOR OUR NATION IS TO TURN BACK TO GOD, AND THE LORD HAS GIVEN ME THE TOOLS TO LEAD OUR NATION BACK TO RIGHTEOUSNESS WHILE HELPING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS, MAYBE MILLIONS OF LOST SOULS COME TO KNOW JESUS? MY LIFE IS NOT MY OWN, IT BELONGS TO THE LORD. I AM HIS!!!

I love you and care about you so much. No, my work here at Liveprayer is not quite finished yet, however I can’t do this alone. I need 300 people who want to make an impact with their life for God by making a commitment to send in a gift of $1,000 or more each month for the next 9 months. I need everyone who is able to make the sacrifice to send the best gift you can for the next 9 months to cover that other $45k each month. This is the time for true men and women of God to step up. This is not a drill, the soul and future of this nation is hanging in the balance. God has given us the tools and the ability to lead this charge back to His Truth. I will pay the personal price to lead this charge, but I can’t do it alone. I need you!

Just an thought. Despite my incredible schedule each day, I am willing to fly anywhere in the country on the weekend to speak at you church or in your home or other location to a group you assemble. Over these next 9 months, my only mission is to help lead this nation back to God and to Biblical Truth, and my life is His. I will do whatever I have to do to bring God’s people together as we take our stand for Him. If you would like me to come speak at your church or to a group you assemble, just email me at bkeller@liveprayer.com and we can set that up.

Throughout these past 10 yrs, the Liveprayer family has answered the call, and because of our faithfulness tens of millions of lives around the world have been impacted for Christ and over 1/4 million souls we know of will be in Heaven. God has one last job for us before our work here is over, and that is to lead this nation back to God and to Biblical Truth. There is nothing we will ever do greater than to serve the Lord. This is our opportunity. This is our time. God is calling us. I have answered His call, will you???

I am asking you to pray about being one of the 300 people I need who will commit to send at least $1,000 a month for the next 9 months. Please email me at: bkeller@liveprayer.com and let me know you will be one of the 300 I need. I will keep everyone updated on how many we need until we get those 300 people. I have struggled each month for 10 years to keep Liveprayer alive financially.

This is the one area satan has battled me fiercely, since he knows that with just a fraction of what most major ministries take in, we can lead this nation back to God and millions to faith in Jesus Christ. I can’t tell you how much time and energy I have had to invest in keeping the ministry alive financially that I could be using to save souls! This is not the time to struggle financially, but to have an ABUNDANCE.

Our nation and the eternal souls of millions are counting on us. God is calling, I couldn’t say no and I pray you won’t either! I need you, God needs you! There is no time left, we must act now!!!

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

What is in the News from a Biblical Perspective

Leave a comment

(2 Chronicles 20:6 )

“O LORD, God of our fathers, are you not the God who is in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in your hand, and no one can withstand you.” 2 Chronicles 20:6

What is in the news, from a Biblical perspective. This is one of those days when I want to hit on several things that have been in the news as of late, and put them into a Biblical perspective for you. You’ve heard these stories and no doubt commentaries on them from different viewpoints, but today I want to cover them with you through the filter of God’s Word.

The first is the unbelievable offer by Notre Dame to invite President Obama to give the commencement address at that great school in a few months. Notre Dame is of course a Catholic University, and for those running this prestigious university to invite the most pro-death President in our nation’s history, a man who has demonstrated that he is an enemy of God to speak there, is tantamount to a Jewish University inviting a Nazi sympathizer to give their commencement address.

I pray all good Catholics will voice their outrage and that large donors of Notre Dame will express their disgust by withholding their gifts unless this mockery is corrected. Whoever made the ultimate decision to make this invitation should be banished to a parish in Siberia and the offer to have President Obama give the commencement address should be rescinded immediately.

The big story last week was the bonuses paid to executives at AIG. First, it is hilarious the government is so upset after giving AIG 170 BILLION without any strings attached, that they are trying to make a few executives who were contractually owed this money out to be the villains. The government had no business getting involved and if they had let AIG fail, guess what, there would have been no money to pay these bonuses!

Competitors in the industry would have taken over the profitable pieces of AIG and the free markets would have sorted things out as they always have. It is the government’s intervention in AIG, the banking and financial industries, and the auto industry, that has only made the current economic crisis worse.

However, be fully aware that the government’s intervention into the business world, the certain nationalizing of the banks in the near future, fall right in line with President Obama’s socialist philosophy. This is important from a Biblical perspective since it will help set the stage for the fulfillment of Revelation.

I will devote an entire Devotional to this issue very soon, but the drive to destroy capitalism and embrace socialism by our government makes it possible for the rise of the anti-Christ (someone FAR more superior than President Obama) and the reality of a one world government, one world economy, and one world religion. These things that seemed pretty much impossible just 20 years ago, are now not only possible, but becoming more probable each day.

With churches closing every week and an estimated 100,000 non-profits shutting down by the end of the year for lack of funding, our illustrious President has now decided to REDUCE the amount someone in the top tax bracket can deduct for charitable giving. At a time when people should be encouraged to GIVE, this genius who has never even run a lemonade stand in his life, wants to cut down on the amount the top givers can deduct, the very people every charitable organization relies on for a large percentage of their funding.

President Obama has spent more money in the first 2 months of his Presidency than all the Presidents since George Washington combined! He has initiated massive spending efforts despite the economic crisis to insure this nation becomes totally dependent upon the government for everything.

Lastly, is the sad plane crashes this past weekend. One a private plane with 14 on board heading to a ski vacation, the other a FedEx plane at Tokyo’s Narita Airport. Please be in prayer for all the families who lost loved ones. What these sad tragedies are is a constant reminder that the Bible is true when is tell us that tomorrow is promised to none of us, that each day is a gift from God.

We never know when God will call us home, and that is why we must not put off giving our heart and life to Jesus by faith and surrendering our life to Him. Let me encourage you today, If you have never asked Jesus into your life, or do not have the assurance that if you died today you would be with God for eternity, pray for God to open your heart, then read the words and watch the short video at this link:
http://www.liveprayer.com/bdy_salvatn.html I will be praying for you as you do!

I love you and care about you so much. I promised myself I wouldn’t do it, but I can’t help it. I TOLD YOU SO! God gave the people what they wanted, just like He gave the people of Israel a king despite the warnings of His prophet!!!

The impromptu tea parties that are sprouting up around the country are symbolic of the outrage at the government but they miss the point. Mormon Glenn Beck’s 912 Project sounds good and he pushes it on his radio and TV programs with passion, but it also misses the point. As I have been sharing with you these past 6 months, there is NO HOPE for this nation other than to turn back to God and Biblical values.

We are under the judgment of God and complete repentance and a turning back to God by this nation is the ONLY ANSWER! There are no economic answers, there are no political answers, the ONLY ANSWER is to turn back to God. I will deal with this in depth in my Devotional tomorrow, don’t miss it!

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

Mike Tomlin became the Youngest Coach in History to Win the Super Bowl this Past February

Leave a comment

(I Corinthians 15:58; Galatians 6:9; 2 Timothy 4:7)

Mike Tomlin became the youngest coach in history to win the Super Bowl this past February, leading the Pittsburg Steelers to victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Living in the Tampa area, I have had the opportunity to follow Coach Tomlin since he became an assistant coach with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. One of the trademarks of Coach Tomlin is his incredible work ethic. While declaring his unashamed faith in Jesus Christ, Coach Tomlin’s professional life is focused on winning football games. Sunday, February 1st, he received the ultimate payoff for all of his hard work and determination as the Steelers won football’s greatest praise, the Super Bowl.

I have had the pleasure throughout my life of personally knowing many people that are extremely successful by the worlds standards. The one common bond that they all share is an incredible work ethic. They are driven to do whatever it takes to succeed in their given profession. They will routinely put in 100 hour plus work weeks, they will make whatever sacrifices they have to, in order to be successful. There is literally no price that they are not willing to pay to achieve their goals.

My question to you this morning is this. If people are willing to literally give their very lives for the temporary success that this world can offer, how much more should the men and women of God be willing to work for the eternal success the Creator of this world can offer? Let me ask this question again, and I pray that right now you will stop whatever you are doing, and ponder it.

IF PEOPLE ARE WILLING TO LITERALLY GIVE THEIR VERY LIVES FOR THE TEMPORARY SUCCESS THAT THIS WORLD CAN OFFER, HOW MUCH MORE SHOULD THE MEN AND WOMEN OF GOD BE WILLING TO WORK FOR THE ETERNAL SUCCESS THAT THE CREATOR OF THIS WORLD CAN OFFER?

If a football coach is willing to put in 20-hour days to win a football game, that in the light of eternity is absolutely meaningless, how much more willing should the men and women that God has called to His service, be willing to do to win souls for eternity???

My sole motivation for this word to you today is this. We can ALL do more. EVERY man, woman, and young adult that has accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, is called by God to His service. Sharing the hope and love of Christ is not just the job of your pastor, or an evangelist, but is the job of EVERY person that has accepted Jesus Christ into their hearts and lives. THIS IS NOT AN OPTION.

It has only been because of the tireless work and efforts of those saints who have gone on before us that we share in this great faith today. It is OUR JOB AND RESPONSIBILITY to insure, should Jesus tarry, that the next generation of saints who are still not even born, have a rich and solid Christian heritage and family throughout this world.

That will not happen by accident, but through the hard work and efforts of men and women of God all over the planet. There is a very real enemy that would love to destroy the people of God. We live in a world today that will not let the message of hope and love through Jesus Christ be heard without a fight. We have to fight, we have to work hard to make sure that the TRUTH of the Bible is boldly proclaimed.

The enemy has no shame or fear in telling people the lie that there is no God, that there is no truth, that you can live any way you want. We have to be equally as bold and fearless to tell people worldwide that there IS a God that loves them very much, that there is TRUTH found in the Bible, and that the only real peace, joy, and abundance that this life can offer comes from living for Christ 24/7/365.

I love you and care about you so much. I pray that you will be encouraged and motivated to take some time and ask God what more you can do to serve Him. There is nothing wrong with working hard to be successful in whatever your earthly profession may be. However, should we not be equally as passionate and diligent in our work for God? I think back on what a handful of mostly uneducated men totally sold our for Jesus did right after his death. These men that had no great position in life, they did not have great financial resources, traveling was very difficult, and there were no form of modern communication. Yet they literally turned the world upside down as they helped lay the foundation of Christianity.

With our incredible education opportunities, people in the Kingdom that have vast resources, being able to fly around the world as easy as it is to drive down the street, and all of the amazing communication devices we enjoy…HOW MUCH MORE CAN THOSE MEN AND WOMEN OF GOD WHO ARE SOLD OUT MAKE AN IMPACT FOR THE CAUSE OF CHRIST???

IF PEOPLE ARE WILLING TO LITERALLY GIVE THEIR VERY LIVES FOR THE TEMPORARY SUCCESS THAT THIS WORLD CAN OFFER, HOW MUCH MORE SHOULD THE MEN AND WOMEN OF GOD BE WILLING TO WORK FOR THE ETERNAL SUCCESS THAT THE CREATOR OF THIS WORLD CAN OFFER? God is speaking to YOU today!!!

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