I Wish People Would Start Listening to What I Tell You

Leave a comment

(John 14:6)

I wish people would start listening to what I tell you. In the past 72 hours, British Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary, who once said ‘the flag of Islam will fly over the White House,’ has announced he will lead a demonstration calling on Muslims to establish the Sharia law across America. Protests are now in full swing all over the Middle East, as Muslims see an opportunity to not just dominate the religion of these countries, but rule them as well like in Iran!

While the House voted to cut-off all Federal funds for Planned Parenthood, something I have been writing about for the past 6 years, sadly even if it passes the Senate, which is unlikely, our pro-death President will veto it.

Now more than ever, we don’t need another church on some corner, or another preacher wanting to be rich and famous on Christian TV, but a VOICE, an uncompromised, trusted voice for Biblical Truth in the marketplace that can effectively articulate the Christian worldview. As each day unfolds, more and more I see the time being ripe to change the spiritual direction in this nation like never before.. People are afraid, people are hurting, people are uncertain, people are simply looking for real hope and answers!

These are challenging times in our nation, the world we live in, here at Liveprayer, and for so many families. Civil unrest is now becoming a daily occurrence across our nation, as people rise up against many state governments as well as the Federal government over budget cuts necessary to bring some fiscal responsibility back to governments at every level. Across the Middles East, you have daily protests, often violent, as citizens rise up against those in power, demanding more freedoms and rights.

After a drop of nearly 65% in donations over the past 2 years due to the economic downturn, Liveprayer is doing all we can to simply continue with our basic daily operations, having cut everything possible to keep operating. Every day, we are praying for and counseling people who have been out of work for many many months, losing or having lost their home, simply trying to pay the bills to live from one day to the next.

It is in these times we can often start wondering where is God? Why has He forsaken us? The fact is God has not forsaken us, we have forsaken Him! The nation’s of the world, including the United States, live in all out rebellion to God and His Truth. We bow down and worship every false god and idol man has created in his rebellious mind. Why is anyone surprised at the all out turmoil this world is in, and the enemies of God are on the rise!

My friend, there is only one hope for the Middle East, for the United States, for Liveprayer, for you and your family, for every person alive…JESUS!!! He, and He alone is our only hope and answer for the problems in our world, nation, and lives. Now more than ever we need to turn to Him like never before. He promised to never leave us nor forsake us. Jesus doesn’t lie. Now is the time we must reach out to Him like never before.

In the Daily Devotional, I have put what is happening in the Middle East in Biblical perspective. For nearly 12 years, I have warned you that if we don’t turn back to God and His Truth as a nation, we will see His wrath and punishment. The hope of each family who is struggling, the hope of each person, is to put our faith in hope of Jesus like never before. Only He can lead us through this difficult time, despite what happens to this nation and the world around us.

Liveprayer has cut back all we can to continue our daily operations, feeding over 2.4 million souls worldwide each day, sending personal responses to over 40,000 emails every day for prayer and counsel, all for free. We are on the verge of having our permanent location at ground zero finalized, to give us a high profile physical presence to daily proclaim the Gospel to the lost and hurting in that great city. Along with the daily TV program on superstation WWOR, we have the vehicle to literally change the spritual course of tens of millions of lives as well as this nation and world!

As we head into the last week of February, we need to bring in $20,000 to cover our monthly operating budget. In addition, we need to start raising the funds to open the permanent home of the “9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero,” that includes airing the Liveprayer TV program on superstation WWOR in the New York City media market.

The key is the $500,000 we need by the end of this month, $90,000 of that is needed right away. After praying, the most efficient way to get this initial amount in on time is to break it up into 100 $5,000 units. So far, we have had 10 units committed. In addition, one dear friend can only take 1/2 unit and is looking for someone to take the other half. Another friend of the ministry has issued a challenge to match the next 3 units. That means your unit will be doubled!

We will be placing a gorgeous plaque in the lobby of the new center with 100 engraved leafs, each one in honor or memoriam of someone special in the life of the person giving the $5,000 unit for that leaf. Also, for a special gift of $100,000, we will name the new chapel in honor of a person the donor designates.

In addition, I need 100 people to give a gift of $1,000 for the “9-11 Memorial Prayer Room.” We will also have a special plaque there with 100 leafs engraved in honor of the person the donor designates.

—>Lastly, to help cover the construction costs of the new “9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero,” we have 10,000 bricks that people can personally engrave for $100 each, that will form the main walls of the sanctuary where souls will be saved, and a nation will be turned back to God and His Truth!!! This is an incredible opportunity to honor someone you love, and memorialize them at a place millions of people will visit, and God will use to bring revival to this nation!!! To get 1 or multiple personally engraved bricks, please go to: http://www.liveprayer.com/brick

I am asking you today to pray about taking 1 or more of the units we are offering, or at least one engraved brick. I realize for many this could be an incredible sacrifce, but when have you ever had the opportunity to be part of something that can literally change the spiritual direction of this nation???

NOW IS THE TIME AND THIS IS THE OPPORTUNITY WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR!!!

Obviously, anyone who is able to give a gift of any amount is encouraged to do so!!! The Bible tells us to give according to our ability to give, and for some that may be just $5, for others it could be $50,000. I am asking everyone to do your best to help me between now and the end of the month.

However, I am asking you to pray today about helping me with at least one of the $1,000 or $5,000 units. I know there are people reading this right now who have the ability to make that special one-time sacrifice between now and the end of the month!!!

***THERE ARE AT LEAST 5 PEOPLE READING THIS TODAY, WHO HAVE THE ABILITY TO PERSONALLY, OR THROUGH THEIR CONTACTS AND CONNECTIONS, HELP ME RAISE THE $12 MILLION WE WOULD NEED FOR ONE FULL YEAR OF OPERATIONS HERE AT LIVEPRAYER.COM, THE PHYSICAL EVANGELISTIC CENTER AT GROUND ZERO, AND A NATIONWIDE PRESENCE ON SECULAR TV 5 DAYS A WEEK TO CONFRONT EVIL, BATTLE SIN, AND BE THE ONLY VOICE IN THE SECULAR MEDIA TO TAKE ON THE LIES OF SATAN THAT ARE BEING BROADCAST WITHOUT OPPOSITION 24/7/365 BECAUSE NONE OF OUR SO-CALLED CHRISTIAN LEADERS HAVE THE GUTS TO LEAVE THE COMFORT AND PROFITABILITY OF PREACHING TO THE CHOIR TO TAKE ON THE MINIONS OF SATAN! IF GOD IS SPEAKING TO YOU ABOUT EITHER PERSONALLY FUNDING, OR IF YOU HAVE THE TALENT, ABILITIES, AND CONTACTS TO FUND THIS..CONTACT ME. LIVEPRAYER HAS A 12 YR. TRACK RECORD OF EFFECTIVE MINISTRY IN THE MARKETPLACE, WE SIMPLY NEED THE RESOURCES TO BUY THE PLATFORM!

I love you and care about you so much. Do you want to do something great for God with your life??? STAND WITH ME!!! I CAN’T DO THIS ALONE!!!

I am also asking you to please forward this to every person you know, personally reach out to those who God has blessed with financial resources and encourage them to support this new work, and share this email with your pastor and ask him to pray about having your church make a special missions gift towards this effort. I will keep you posted how we are doing with our financial goals over the coming weeks and months.

When this brief journey through life is over, what do we have to show for it? The only lasting legacy we have are those things we did for the Lord. I have taken my stand and will proclaim His truth with my dying breath. Today, I am asking you to pray about joining me and let’s turn this nation back to God and His Truth!!!

Will you stand and fight with me???????

One of the Most Asked Questions I Get is Whether God Really has a Plan and Purpose for Our Life

Leave a comment

(Acts 26:16-18)

One of the most asked questions I get daily, and have throughout my years of ministry, is whether God really has a plan and purpose for our life. Let me assure you that there are no accidents, no coincidences with God. The one who created the universe and everything in it, did not just create us in His image to drift from birth to death with no purpose. Those who are into science will tell you that the incredible perfection of creation could never have just happened, and while some forms of life may undergo a sort of evolutionary process to a small degree, all of this did not just “happen” and work itself into perfection.

A dear friend of mine, years ago, who came to know Christ because of the irrefutable evidence we have from science, told me that the creation of the universe and the incredible precision it takes to operate properly could have never “just happened by some accident.” He said it would be the equivalent of taking an expensive, finely-tuned Swiss watch apart, throwing the thousand some pieces in the air, and having them land in perfect working order.

My friend, the universe did not just happen, God created it. You did not just happen, God created you. God did not just create all of this because He was bored….there is a divine plan and purpose for everything, including your life!

The scripture text today is God revealing to Paul the plan He had for his life. Most of us will never have a Damascus Road experience where God calls down to us and gives us the exact plan for our life. However, as we are surrendered to His will, He will move us and position us exactly where He wants us. He will open doors, close doors, and lead us to the very place, at the very time as you are surrendered to Him and His plan. There are no accidents where you live, work, go to school, recreate, who your neighbors are, or the people that are in your life. God strategically places us as His instruments, so we can do our part of fulfilling His master plan.

The key, of course, is to be surrendered to Him. If we rebel, if we don’t listen, or if we do it our way and not His way, then, of course, His plan will never be fulfilled. That becomes our choice each day, to live our life our way or His way. When we do it our way, we then bear the burden of coming up with our own plan each day. It is amazing how we try, try, and try, and it never seems to work out. We may be successful in one area of our life, but miserable in others.

You see, when we operate under God’s plan, He takes into consideration ALL areas of our life…our work, finances, relationships, service to Him, and recreation. He has ALL aspects of our life covered. That is why some people you see may have a great plan for their finances and be very successful by the world’s standards, but total failures in their marriage or as a parent. Or some may have a great home life, but are always struggling financially. The point is, when you are operating under your plan, it will never all work, all the time. There is a fatal flaw….it is your plan, not His!!

I love you and care about you so much. I will be praying for you today to open your heart and really talk with God about whether you are operating day to day under your plan or His. Surrender is the first step; that takes faith and trust. God will never let you down, He will never disappoint you, but just love and bless you daily. He does have a plan for you. Now it is up to you to open your heart and life and let Him fulfill it, just as Paul did.

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

Everyone has Those Times when the Burdens of this Life Can Become Overwhelming

Leave a comment

(Galatians 6:2)

Everyone who lives, has those times when the burdens of this life can become overwhelming. Whatever the reasons, however it happened, you wake up feeling like the weight of the world is on your shoulders. The joy, the peace, the pleasures of this life seem so far away.

We have all been through those valleys so we know how difficult it can be. I often talk to you about being in the will of God. That can be difficult at times determining exactly what God’s will is for our life, but there are some basics God expects us to do that the Bible clearly tells us are His will for our life.

One of those is to bear the burdens of others. I want to really challenge you today to put aside your cares and help someone you know who is struggling to carry their load today. I realize that you may be dealing with some difficult issues yourself, but there is someone God has placed in your life, a family member, neighbor, schoolmate, coworker, a friend…someone who is really hurting and struggling under the weight of their problems today.

God is telling you to go help that person carry their burden. The Bible teaches us that when we are about our Father’s business, He will be about ours.

As we know, many people are reluctant to open up about the very intimate problems of life. That can make it difficult for someone trying to help. But even if they don’t totally open up, just your interest, your compassion, your desire to help can make all the difference in the world.

The Bible teaches that we really are our brother’s keeper. Reaching out with the love of Christ to someone who is hurting is the ultimate ministry anyone can perform in this life.

If you read the accounts of the earthly ministry of Jesus in the Gospels, you will see much of His ministry was one on one with hurting people. That is the example He has left us. I am challenging you today to find that someone in your life, hurting, falling under the weight of their problems, and pick them up. Pick them up and carry them for a while. It is what Jesus would do, it is what God is asking you to do today.

I love you and care about you so much. I want to see you enjoy all of the blessings God has for your life. Helping others in their hour of need is one of the greatest ways God can use your life and you will be blessed beyond your imagination for your faithfulness.

Serving others is something you don’t need a seminary degree for, you don’t need any special training for. Serving others is what God expects from all His children and He has given you a new heart of love to make it possible to share that love with others. You see, without the Lord, we have a difficult time loving ourselves, let alone others. But when we realize how much God loved us, and sacrificed for us, it becomes easy for us to love others.

Bearing the burdens of others is what we do each day here at Liveprayer. It is what God has called me to do with my life. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is any way I can help you. You are special to me and I will try my best to help you walk through the problems you are facing, and be victorious.

God loves you, and my only desire is to see you become the best you can be for Him. You can do that today by finding a brother or sister in need and helping them carry their burden. That is God’s will for you.

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

Today is a Special Day for Me as I Celebrate My 53rd Birthday

Leave a comment

(Luke 4:18)

Today is a special day for me as I celebrate my 53rd birthday. I never forget that tomorrow is promised to none of us and that each day is a gift from God. So I am most grateful for the Lord blessing me with these years of life, and am even more grateful that He allows me the honor of waking up each morning to serve Him. My hand is to the plough, I am not looking back, and am so excited each morning at what God is going to do in people’s lives that day. I look forward to sharing the Truth of God’s Word and the hope and love of Jesus Christ with the lost and hurting in the world until He says my work is over and calls me home.

It is normal on your birthday to receive presents. You may get a new pair of shoes, some clothes, a watch, maybe a nice dinner out, or even something as extravagant as a new car. However, even though it is my birthday, I have a present for YOU today. It is better than new shoes, or new clothes, or a shiny watch. It is even better than a new car. My present to you today will actually add YEARS TO YOUR LIFE!

You see, I really do love you and care about you. I am so thankful for you being part of my life and I want you to be around for many years to come should Jesus tarry in His return. Even though it is God who will have the last word when our life is over, we can make the free will choices to do things that can literally shorten our days. So today, my present to you is how to live as long as you possibly can to enjoy this life and be a productive servant of our Lord until the moment He calls you home.

Over the past 138+ months I have spoken many times on how our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit, and how we should do all that we can to keep our temples in the best shape possible. I have spoken often about how it is our responsibility to be in the best physical shape possible to be able to serve God to our best ability for as long as we possibly can.

Less than 10% of those reading this today exercise regularly or even try to eat the right foods. OVER 90% OF THOSE READING THIS TODAY ARE OVERWEIGHT AND THOSE EXTRA POUNDS ARE SHORTENING YOUR LIFE!!! Today I am going to help you lose weight. MORE IMPORTANTLY, KEEP THE WEIGHT OFF without spending thousands on joining a health club, buying machines, or becoming a slave to the latest pills or juices that will cost you $50 a month and NEVER do what they promise.

There are two elements required to lose weight. First is exercise. You MUST be on a disciplined exercise plan and be faithful to that plan to burn the calories necessary, not to mention the positive effects it has on your heart and muscles. Second is what you eat. There is NO way to lose weight, maintain your optimum weight, unless you are watching what you eat and drink. Sweets, soft drinks, alcohol, snack foods all have tons of calories that will put pounds on you. If you are doing lots of exercise, you can get away with eating some things that are not the best for you to be eating, but you must be aware of all that you eat and drink. I hate to be over simplistic, but the fact is, if you are exercising regularly and watching what you eat, you can and WILL lose weight and MAINTAIN your ideal weight.

Please let me add this VERY IMPORTANT fact. Everyone has their own ideal weight. Genetics DO play a factor in this, and how God created our bodies is an issue. There are some people who simply will carry more weight than others. There is NOTHING wrong with being what some may consider overweight. Nobody can be the media’s definition of perfect, nor should we try. We have to use common sense and accept the fact that some people are simply created to carry more weight than others. The key is, are you where YOU need to be at for YOUR body???

From the amount of emails that I get every day, I know that this is a major issue for many of you. Here is the secret. It is a battle like any other battle you fight in life. It is first a spiritual battle. The strength you get to stick to your exercise routine, to eat the right things each day, do NOT come from a pill or from yourself, IT HAS TO COME FROM GOD!!! You need to take the time each morning and pray to God for the strength and diligence to stick to your exercise plan and what you eat. IN YOUR OWN STRENGTH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE! People fail in their sincere efforts in this area because they have left out the spiritual element to it.

FORGET THE $50 A MONTH PILL OR JUICE AND REPLACE IT WITH PRAYER! All that pill or juice does is remind you that this is a commitment that you have made. Period. Prayer will not only remind you, but strengthen you to stick to it and see victory!!!

I love you and care about you so much and am grateful to be able to give you this present today! I will be praying for you that God will inspire you to take action in this area of your life. HE IS SPEAKING TO YOU ABOUT ADDING YEARS TO YOUR LIFE! You don’t need the latest pill or juice to lose weight. You need to exercise, watch what you eat, and PRAY! That is the special element. God will give you the strength and motivation to get victory over this area of your life. He will help you. Like in all things, when we are serious and ask God to help us, HE WILL!!! You will not only lose the weight you desire, but keep it off as long as you are willing to exercise, watch what you eat, and pray about this daily!

Losing weight and maintaining a certain weight is like every other battle we face. We must have a battle plan that we work faithfully each day, and that plan must include accountability to others and God. We aren’t strong enough to get and maintain victory on our own. We need to have others in our life to hold us accountable and to keep us where we need to be in our day-to-day actions. I realize that this is an issue with many who are reading this right now. Know today that there is hope, there is victory waiting for you!

Exercise, pay attention to what you eat, have people in your life who will hold you accountable to your exercise routine and what you eat, and pray daily for God to give you the strength and resolve to stick to the plan. IT WILL ADD YEARS TO YOUR LIFE! This is an important issue because the better you feel, the better shape you are in, the more fit you are, the better you will be able to serve and glorify God with your life for many years to come!

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

A Reminder What Islam is Really about Especially for Women

Leave a comment

(Genesis 1:27; Galatians 3:28)

***WATCH THIS SPECIAL YOUTUBE VIDEO MESSAGE TO MUSLIM WOMEN FROM BILL KELLER!

A reminder what Islam is really about, especially for women! Remember those wonderful people in Tahrir Square, Cairo, Egypt, our President and press applauded? You know, those protestors we were told who just wanted freedom and democracy? We now find out that in their jubilation over President Mubarak resigning, in their celebration, a mob of MUSLIM MEN took CBS reporter Lara Logan and sexually assaulted her for hours. It took 20 members of the Egyptian military to eventually save Logan from this savage assault that would have probably ended in her death.

As I shared with you in a two-part Devotional this Monday and Tuesday, what happened in Egypt had ZERO to do with freedom and democracy, and everything to do with the rise of Islam to take over that country, their ultimate goal in EVERY country, including this one! I also told you this type of activity would spread throughout the Middle East region, and it has. Islam is about violence, death, and domination. Islam is also about treating women as nothing more than slaves and the “property of their husband.” What happened to Lara Logan happens to women in Muslim homes around the world every day.

In Islam, woman are not equal to men in any way. The Qur’an says that the testimony of a woman is not equal to that of a man. It says that the testimony of two women is required to be equal to the testimony of one man. Call in two male witnesses from among you, but if two men cannot be found, then one man and two women whom you judge fit to act as witnesses. (Qur’an 2:282 Dawood) Interestingly, Islam teaches the vast majority of those in hell are women. Ibn Abbas reported that Allah’s Messenger said: I had a chance to look into paradise and I found that majority of the people was poor and I looked into the Fire and there I found the majority constituted by women. (Muslim, vol. 4, hadith 6597, p. 1432).

In the false religion of Islam, beating women is not only common, but something their “holy book” encourages. “And those (wives) you fear may be rebellious admonish; banish them to their couches, and beat them.” (Qur’an 4:34, Arberry) Many hadiths encourage wife beating. Umar reported the Prophet as saying, “A man will not be asked about why he beat his wife.” (Mishkat Al-Masabih, p. 693: Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah) Mohammed was also recorded to have beat his wives.

Of course, a woman’s chief responsibility is to satisfy her husband sexually. Mohammad gave strong warnings to women who would not accommodate their husbands/masters desire. Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (p.) said, “If a man invites his wife to sleep with him an she refuses to come to him, then angels send their curses on her till morning.” (Bukhari, vol. 7, hadith 121, p. 93) For the Muslim man, upon his death he believes there will be many virgins waiting for him. “Surely for the godfearing awaits a place of security, gardens and vineyards and maidens with swelling breasts, like of age, and a cup overflowing.” (Qur’an 78:31-33, Arberry) In the world of Islam, women have no legal standing, and are little more than a man’s punching bag and sex object.

I love you and care about you so much Why a woman would want to be part of the false religion of Islam is beyond me. They are believed to be inferior to men and little more than slaves who exist for the benefit of men. I have no clue why any woman would want to be part of these lies from the pits of hell, especially when you know the TRUTH about women as God tell us in His Word. All throughout the Bible, women have played an incredible role in the plan of God. We see women being used by God in incredible ways, helping to fulfill His Divine plan. Women have always played a key role in God’s work, and I want to make sure we never lose sight of how important they are in the Kingdom of God.

THE LIE OF SATAN THROUGH THE TEACHINGS OF THE FALSE RELIGION OF ISLAM IS THAT WOMEN ARE INFERIOR TO MEN. THE TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD TEACHES THAT MEN AND WOMEN ARE EQUAL!!!

I want to encourage women who are following the lies of Islam that you are NOT inferior to a man. God made you EQUAL with men. He loves you, has a special plan and purpose for your life, and wants the best for you. The fact is a large percentage of women in Islam did not choose these beliefs or make a conscience decision to commit their lives to them, they were born or married into them. You cannot be born or married into Christianity. It is a choice, a decision you have to make to give your heart and life to Jesus. He loves you and wants to have an everlasting relationship with you. You don’t need your parents or a man or anyone else to know Jesus as your personal Savior. It is a relationship you enter into by faith.

The fact is that all of us, men and women, are born with the sin of Adam in addition to those sins we commit during our life. It is our sin that separates us from God our Creator. But God loved us so much, He sent Jesus to die for our sins. That is why it is faith in Jesus alone, not Mohammed, but the Jesus of the Bible who is GOD that will save your soul. It is not too late. You can turn from the lies of Islam today and ask Jesus into your heart and life by faith and He will. Take a moment, pray, and ask God to open your heart and watch this video clip:

***As we wind down the last 11 days of February, please be praying about helping me with a gift.

Death is a Part of the Human Experience

Leave a comment

(James 4:14)

“Dear Bill, It is with a broken heart that I’m letting you know that my husband had a massive and fatal heart attack last week. I know he enjoyed your email messages for a long time and that he has communicated with you, and encouraged you in your ministry. He has gone to be with Jesus. Our memories of him are sweet. I thought you would like to know. God Bless”

Sadly, I receive many emails like this every week. The death of someone we love is a difficult part of this brief life we live. That is why we must be grateful for each day God gives us, and never take our life for granted. It is also why we must be prepared for the day we leave this life and help as many as possible be prepared for that day as well. I had just communicated with this woman’s husband a few days prior to his death. He is forever with the Lord he loved, though he lives on in all of those lives he touched along his journey.

For each one of us, the one certainty is that one day this life will be over and we will pass into eternity. It is not a question of if, only when. That is why I try often to reinforce to you that we must live each day to its fullest. Our purpose in this life is to serve and glorify God. When it is over, the only thing that we will take with us from this life is our personal relationship with Christ. As real as the fact is that one day we will die, we often take this life for granted. From time to time however, we are confronted with our own mortality and it helps us to refocus on what this life is really about.

Death is a part of the human experience. The Bible says “O death, where is thy sting!” For those who have put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ it is not an event to be feared, but one that simply marks the end of our time in this life. Don’t ever forget this important point. Only God says when our work here is over. So have no fear. As long as He still has work for us to do, we aren’t going anywhere. I guess He still has some work left for me to do. I pray each day I am faithful to that work.

I share this with you today just to remind you how precious life really is. Not only how precious, but how quickly it can end. DON’T EVER TAKE YOUR LIFE FOR GRANTED. EACH DAY IS A SPECIAL GIFT FROM GOD. Let me also say that for anyone reading this today, that does not have 100% assurance that if your life ends today you will spend eternity with God, the Bible says TODAY is the day of salvation.

Please take a few minutes, the most important few minutes of your life, and go to http://www.liveprayer.com/plan.cfm . Simply ask God to open your heart and watch this brief clip.

I love you and care about you so very much. I don’t say that lightly, especially today. Trust me when I tell you that in the face of death, knowing that you will spend eternity with Jesus, gives you a peace you can’t even describe. For those who do know Christ, make each day count, you just never know when it will be your last. Make sure you do all you can to serve Him each day.

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

In Part I I Made the Clear Case How Islam is Growing and Taking Over Every Nation on the Planet

Leave a comment

(John 14:6)

Yesterday in part one, I made the clear case how Islam is growing around the world and has a very clear and stated goal of taking over every nation on the planet. We are actually watching this unfold before our very eyes. I also shared how most people in the United States are sleeping on this issue, and without even knowing it you now have Muslim groups operating in all 50 states.

Like in European nations, they have infiltrated every aspect of our society from the business community, the military, media, politics, to the education system. You name it and there is now an Islamic presence. They are well financed and become more organized and emboldened each day.

So that begs the question, how should Christians in the United States and around the world respond to the ever growing threat of Islam?

First, let me share with you what a Christian should NOT do. Theologically, Christians and Muslims have NO common ground. I get sick every time I hear of Christian churches and groups getting involved with Imams, mosques, and different Muslim groups. It is that ecumenical lie from hell. On the surface it sounds great. Let’s all hold hands and sing kumbaya. The problem is IT DOESN’T WORK! Again, I get the concept of getting along with people of other faiths, but here is why it never works.

In these ecumenical situations, in these feel good alliances between Muslims and Christians, it is always the Christian who has to lay aside the absolutes of the Bible…NOT THE MUSLIM THEIR BELIEFS! They pray to their mythical god “allah,” and talk of their murdering, pedophile prophet Mohammad without hesitation. Christians become afraid to even pray in the name of Jesus, yet alone have the courage to share the true Gospel, for fear of “offending” someone.

The reality is, Muslims love to get involved in these relationships with Christian churches and groups. Most Christians have big hearts and are easy prey for those who follow Islam. The Christian has a real desire to be friends with Muslims and thinks that they will be able to convert them to Christianity simply by being kind to them, when the Muslim is simply using the relationship for credibility and to further the lie they are simply peaceful people who want to get along with everyone. Trust me my friend, when “jihad,” holy war comes, your nice, “peaceful” Muslim friend will not hesitate to cut your head off!

So what is a Christian’s proper response to Islam? THE LIGHT OF THE WORD OF GOD AND THE POWER OF THE GOSPEL!!!

How do you fight the lie? With the Truth. How do you overcome evil? With love. We don’t take up arms to fight the spread of Islam. That is how they have propagated their false religion around the world for 1400 years. We take up the sword, the Bible! Christianity has its roots in the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve. The false relgion of Islam was founded just 1400 yrs ago by a mere man who was visited in his sleep by angels of satan.

The God of the Bible and “allah” of Islam ARE NOT THE SAME! If you study the attributes of the God of the Bible and “allah,” you will quickly see they are NOT the same person. Muslims speak of Abraham, due to the poor plagiarism of parts of the Bible Mohammad used when he wrote his book of fantasies called the Qu’ran. Abraham, through his illegitimate son Ishmael, was the father of Arab race and had NOTHING to do with Islam since this false relgion wasn’t even created until 2600 years after Abraham lived!

People who claim there are 3 religions from Abraham are WRONG! Only Judaism and Christianity have a connection to Abraham, NOT ISLAM! While many of the Arab race have become Muslims in the past 1400 years, there is no direct connection between Abraham and the false religion of Islam. Abraham’s illegitimate son Ishmael was NOT a Muslim!

Of course Islam recognizes Jesus as a “prophet.” Like all cults and false religions they deny Christ’s deity. If Jesus was not God incarnate than the best He could have done was die for His own sins, not the sins of all mankind meaning there is no such thing as salvation through faith in Jesus Christ!

ISLAM HAS NO PLAN OF REDEMPTION FOR MAN’S SINS. ISLAM HAS NO SAVIOR. CHRISTIANS MUST FIGHT ISLAM WITH THE LIFE-TRANSFORMING POWER OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST!

I love you and care about you so much. Christians in the United States and across the world must fight the growing threat of Islam with the Truth of the Bible and the power of the Gospel! We can’t fight Islam through these ecumenical projects. We can’t fight Islam with physical force. We fight Islam with God’s Word and His plan of salvation available to all men through faith in Jesus Christ!

While Islam is growing by the day all over the world, one of the reasons for the spread of Islam is those who have bought into the lies of this false religion are bold, fearless, and tireless in “evangelizing.” How sad is it that those who believe the lies of satan are more aggressive in telling others those lies, than those who have the only Truth there is. If the servants of satan are so bold with their lies, how much more bold should the servants of Jesus Christ be with the Truth???

My friend, we fight the growing threat of Islam by changing hearts and seeing souls won for Christ. I realize at some point when the last chapter of human history is unfolding, there will be a great war fought on the planes of Megiddo between those who follow the false god “allah,” and those who follow the God of the Bible. However, for this season, we fight this war with Islam by boldly proclaiming the hope we and all men have through faith in Jesus Christ.

The Gospel is our only weapon, our only hope, and our only answer in defeating Islam!

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