Halloween – Part 2 of 2

A Christian’s response to Halloween. As I was in prayer eleven years ago about Halloween and what God wanted me to share during that time, part of my focus was on satan and how he operates. The Bible calls him an “angel of light.” He is a great imitator. He takes the perfection of God and perverts it. So as I was praying, God poured into my spirit that it is time for Christians worldwide to rise up on the most important day of the year for satan, Halloween, and claim that day for God!

The first step, is to make it a special day for Christians worldwide. If Hallmark cards and candy companies can make up holidays to sell greeting cards and chocolate, why can’t the church? I am proud to announce that until our Lord returns, October 31 will now be “Witnessing for Jesus Day.” This holiday was started ten years ago by the 2 million worldwide who are part of Liveprayer, and we will continue to promote it as well as follow through to make this a legitimate, recognized holiday every October 31!

The goal is for Christians to share their faith in Jesus Christ with at least 3 people during the day. If every Christian worldwide shared their faith in Christ with 3 people, it would literally turn the world upside down over night. The world will be “witnessing” their rebellion of God with their Halloween parties, their costumes, and satanic services. THIS IS THE PERFECT DAY for Christians to witness to this lost world that we live in, that Jesus Christ is “The Way, the Truth, and the Life.”

What else can Christians do on our new holiday? PLENTY! Every community needs churches to put on “Hell House” or “Judgment House” productions to counter the haunted houses the world promotes. Make sure your home is well lit and inviting for children out trick or treating. In addition to candy, give them a gospel tract or a little “Gospel of John” booklet. Also, pray with each group of kids before they leave. Your church should have the resources to get tracts and the Gospel of John booklets at a very low cost.

NO CHILD SHOULD COME TO YOUR HOME AND LEAVE WITHOUT KNOWING THAT JESUS IS LORD!

For those with children, take them out trick-or-treating! Have them dress up as Bible characters. Let them go door to door for candy, BUT, in return for the candy, they should give the homeowner a tract or a Gospel of John booklet. GOD CAN USE THESE CHILDREN TO HELP SPREAD THE MESSAGE OF CHRIST TO PEOPLE THAT WILL NEVER GO TO CHURCH!!!

Churches, instead of holding an alternative to Halloween party at the church, should get the children involved in evangelizing their neighborhoods! They have the perfect excuse to go door to door on this night. God can use these children to share the hope and love of Christ with people that will never hear the message any other way. DON’T UNDERESTIMATE HOW GOD CAN USE THE CHILDREN ON THIS NIGHT!!!

So, let’s review. We now have a new Christian holiday. It is, “Witnessing for Jesus Day,” and will be celebrated every year on October 31st. It will be a day for Christians worldwide to witness to others what Jesus Christ has done in their life. We will have churches in every community putting on “Hell House” or “Judgment House” productions as an alternative to the haunted house productions of the world. Christians will make their homes inviting for children out trick or treating, and in addition to candy, give them a Gospel Tract or Gospel of John booklet. Children of ALL AGES will become mighty witnessing agents for the Lord. They will dress up as Bible characters and go out into their neighborhoods to get candy, BUT, will give the homeowner a Gospel tract or Gospel of John booklet.

I love you and care about you so much. There is no reason a Christian should have to fear Halloween, nor is there any reason a Christian should have to participate in the way the world celebrates Halloween. It actually is a perfect opportunity to go on the offensive and make this a day to celebrate witnessing our faith to this lost and dying world. What better day than the day the world celebrates rebelling against God–HALLOWEEN!!!

I will be praying for you. I pray that you become bold and part of the eleventh annual “Witnessing for Jesus Day.” For the Christian, sharing our faith is not an option, but is a commandment from God. It is something that we should be doing EVERY day. But there is no better day of the year than Halloween for Believers worldwide to share their faith in Jesus Christ with this lost world. THAT, my friend, needs to be a Christian’s response to Halloween!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Halloween – Part 1 of 2

(Romans 12:1-2; Titus 2:12)

Halloween – Part 1 of 2

Should Christians celebrate Halloween? No! What the world will celebrate on October 31 is not anything that a Christian should be part of. The origin of what we know of as Halloween began in 5th century B.C., Celtic Ireland as a holiday marking the end of summer on October 31 known as Samhein (sow-en).

The pagan Celts believed on that day, the disembodied spirits of all those who had died throughout the preceding year would come back in search of living bodies to possess for the next year. It was believed to be their only hope for the afterlife. The Celts believed all laws of space and time were suspended during this time, allowing the spirit world to intermingle with the living.

Naturally, the still living did not want to be possessed. So on the night of October 31, villagers would extinguish the fires in their homes, to make them cold and undesirable. They would then dress up in all manner of ghoulish costumes and noisily paraded around the neighborhood, being as destructive as possible in order to frighten away spirits looking for bodies to possess.

The Romans adopted the Celtic practices as their own. But in the first century A.D., Samhain was assimilated into celebrations of some of the other Roman traditions that took place in October, such as their day to honor Pomona, the Roman goddess of fruit and trees. The symbol of Pomona is the apple, which might explain the origin of our modern tradition of bobbing for apples on Halloween. The thrust of the practices also changed over time to become more ritualized. As belief in spirit possession waned, the practice of dressing up like hobgoblins, ghosts, and witches took on a more ceremonial role.

The custom of Halloween was brought to America in the 1840’s by Irish immigrants fleeing their country’s potato famine. At that time, the favorite pranks in New England included tipping over outhouses and unhinging fence gates.

Since the eighth century, the Catholic Church has celebrated All Saints’ Day on November 1 to celebrate the known and unknown Saints whom the Church has canonized. The night before the celebration of All Saint’s Day is known as All Hallow’s Eve (“Hallows” mean “saints” both mean “holy ones” as in “Hallowed be thy name”). So, Halloween means “the evening before All Saint’s Day.”

You can see from the pagan roots of Halloween why this has become the most important day to those who worship satan or choose to live in rebellion to God and the TRUTH of His Word. There is NOTHING about this day that honors God, remembers God, or has anything to do at all with God. It is, quite honestly, a celebration of those who oppose God and all that He stands for. THIS is why it’s a day Christians should NOT celebrate nor be part of in any way.

I love you and care about you so much. Tomorrow, Part Two of this series is titled, “A Christian’s Response to Halloween.” Do we hide in our homes with the lights off? Do we all go to church and hide in the basement so the devil doesn’t get us? What exactly should a Christian be doing on Halloween? I will give you a hint. It will be a bold call to action. I can think of no better night to see souls won for Christ than on Halloween.

DO NOT MISS PART TWO TOMORROW AS WE CELEBRATE A NEW HOLIDAY ON OCTOBER 31ST THAT WILL HONOR JESUS CHRIST, THE KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS!!!

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

Lies That Kill

Leave a comment

(John 8:44)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, say a person has a high calling like a pastor or evangelist and that person does not follow through with their calling. They don’t go back into the world, but just wants to live a normal Christian life doing the minimal for the Lord. Will God punish that person?

ANSWER: Sadly, they have punished themselves. Every person has the freewill to obey God or rebel against God, to serve God, or not to serve Him, or serve Him at some level. We are ALL called to serve glorify God with our lives, each one of us in the ways the Lord has called and gifted us to serve. The true abundance and blessings of this life come from our obedience and our faithfulness to fulfill that calling God has on our lives.

“You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8:44

Lies that KILL! Jesus told us that satan is a liar, and thus those who lie are serving satan! Jesus also told us that the goal of satan is to “kill, steal, and destroy.” Satan is about death! Lies kill! We are witnessing that fact as our very own President has completely abandoned the truth for whatever short term political gain he may achieve. It has long been said that you know a politician is lying when you see their lips move. President Obama has fully embraced lying to achieve his political goals and those lies have and will cost people their very lives!!!

No lies could have been more deliberate or more premeditated than the lies told to promote, pass, and enact Obamacare. The absolute fraud perpetrated on the American people in taking over 1/6 of the economy would have landed any other citizen in prison for thousands of years. It makes what Bernie Madoff did look like robbing pennies out of a wishing well! “If you like your plan you can keep your plan,” “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor,” and “the average family will see a reduction in their premiums of $2500 a year,” were all blatant lies and the President knew it every time he made those statements!

When it comes to Islam, President Obama told the American people that ISIS had nothing to do with Islam. He also stated that there is no religion whose “god” would condone the killing of innocent people. He added that we are not at war with Islam. This man must have lost his mind to even say these things since the world knows ISIS, Al-queda, Boko haram, Hamas, Hezbollah, and a host of other terror groups are ALL Muslims representing the false religion of Islam! You don’t need to be a history major to know that for the entire 1400 year history of Islam through today, they have killed innocent people as their teachings encourage them to do! Lastly, Islam has been at war with the United States for decades now, and yes, we are at war with Islam!

The latest lies from the President have centered around the Ebola crisis. We were told we had nothing to worry about and that Ebola would never be seen on US soil. We have been told daily it is not a virus that can infect a person very easily, but can only be contracted by coming in contact with the bodily fluids of someone who has the virus. Yet we have one man who has died from Ebola in Dallas, Texas and two nurses who cared for him who are currently infected. Only God knows how many others that are being checked are also infected. The fact is everything the government has said about the Ebola crisis has been exposed over time to not be true and it will only be in the coming days, weeks, and months that we will learn the full extent of the lies we have been told about this potential epidemic.

The obvious question becomes how do any of these lies bring death? In the coming year we will begin to know the number of people who die due to Obamacare. I already know of 3 from prayer requests by family members where thier loved one died because they were kicked out of hospitals prematurely when in the past they had received incredible care. As the fallout from what Obamacare does, not just to the ability for people to get decent coverage, but in the lack of or poor quality care, we will see many more lives lost.

A byproduct of Obamacare will be the same issues other nations with socialized medicine face regarding the finite pool of healthcare resources and how those funds are allocated. Decisions will be made if you are 75 and need a certain surgery, whether those dollars are better spent on the care of someone half your age. The lies that led to the passage of Obamacare will end up costing untold number of people their life!

When it comes to the lies regarding Islam, only the economy is an easier instrument for God to use in order to unleash His final judgment on this nation. Islam has the real and stated goal of turning this nation into an Islamic state and killing anyone who refuses to convert to the false religion of Islam. It is their desire to do in the United States what they have done in Iraq and Syria as they have conquered territory to create their current “caliphate” or Islamic state that they control.

When it comes to the Ebola virus, the lies regarding the truth of what is really happening and the potential consequences could end up costing thousands, even MILLIONS of people their lives! It is too early to know how widespread, how severe this may become in the United States, but for every person who dies from this outbreak you can ties those deaths directly to the incompetence of the governments handling of this crisis and the lies they have told.

My friend, as I told you in that prophetic message on September 22nd of this year ( http://www.liveprayer.com/ddarchive3.cfm?id=5703 ), God’s hand of protection and blessing has been removed from our nation. He is allowing all of the upheaval we are seeing in our nation today. It is God, who allowed Barack Hussein Obama to be the President of the United States during these past 6 years and for the 2 years to come. President Obama has proved to be exactly who I warned people he was, a true enemy of God in accordance with James 4:4 ( http://www.liveprayer.com/b4.cfm )!

President Obama is a liar exactly as Jesus described in John 8:44! As we move through these final 75 days of 2014, satan is operating in full force to destroy this once Godly nation. Our only hope is to have that “Nineveh moment” to repent of our sins and turn back to God and His Truth. Liveprayer is leading that charge. Our time is short and now is the moment. the weight and magnitude of this moment becomes greater with each passing day. Now more than ever I need your prayers and I need your support.

THIS IS THE MOMENT FOR WHICH I WAS BORN, THIS MINISTRY WAS RAISED UP, AND GOD ORDAINED YOUR LIFE TO BE PART OF IN SUPPORTING HIS WORK HERE!!!!!!!

As we only have 2 weeks left in October, we are still $9,000 short of covering the balance of our September shortfall for our basic internet operations, as well as the $28,000 we are behind as of the end of September for our Chicago TV contract, leaving us requiring immediately $37,000 so we can begin to work on the $65,000 we require for our basic October internet and TV operations.

***That $9,000 left from our September shortfall and $10,000 of our October internet operations from the first week of this month are critically past due! I am desperately praying for one or two of our friends who God has blessed with the resources to help me with these crucial needs necessary for the ongoing operations of Liveprayer, to step up and allow the Lord to use you at this crucial time when now more than ever the often lone voice of Liveprayer must be heard loud and clear in the marketplace as we seek to turn this nation back to God and His Truth!!!

By the grace of God, our core TV operations that covers the satellite feeding over 80 stations nationally and our internet feed “live” every Monday-Friday from Midnight to 2am EDT are current through September! However, our separate contract for Chicago that represents a market of over 10 million people we reach on a major local station every Mon-Fri from 11p-1a (Chicago time) is $28,000 past due!

Since we are behind, the station has cut us back to just one hour for the balance of this month, and if we can’t get our account current by that time they will cancel the program! We have fought to keep the incredible blessing God bestowed on us this past February, and every month we have more and more people helping us from the Chicagoland market so that we are only a few months away from having those costs 100% covered by our viewers.

***Please PRAY and if you have the ability to help me with the $28,000 we need to get current and be that “ram in the bush” or the “young man sacrificing his lunch so the multitudes could be fed,” contact me at: bkeller@liveprayer.com

The Never Ending Stories of Teachers having Sex with Their Students

Leave a comment

(Mark 9:42)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, I am a teacher and bullying is a HUGE issue in schools and all over this nation. What is the fundamental sin behind bullying that drives children to do such evil to each other? Even the very younger ones are involved to the extreme that we have to have training and huge awareness plans in effect to be on top of this expanding problem.

ANSWER: Sadly, this is not anything new, it has simply escalated and is now getting the proper attention. Since Cain and Able, people sinned against others in horrible ways. As more children have grown up in broken and blended homes, not going to church, being desensitized to violence, and not viewing life as precious, the acts of violence against others has dramatically increased and will continue. It is a sad reality of this fallen world without any moral or ethical restraints.

The never ending stories of teachers having sex with their students! I can assure you that most adults, men and women, can think back on their school years and remember that one teacher they had a crush on. For me it was my fourth grade teacher Miss Janis. Even though at 10 years old girls still had “cooties,” Miss Janis was the most gorgeous woman on the planet. It is a normal part of growing up. What is not normal, however, is when you have a teacher who develops a crush on a student. When that teacher actually gives in and acts on those feelings, in addition to not being normal it is also criminal. Sadly, we are being bombarded almost on a weekly basis with a new teacher/student sex scandal and the legitimate question that needs to be asked is WHY?

Trust me, I am not naive enough to believe teachers having sex with their students is something new. It is a problem as old as schools and as old as the teacher/student relationship. There is a special dynamic that exists between a teacher and their student. Teachers become a very important person in shaping the life of a young person. Outside of our parents, our teachers are most likely to have a dramatic impact on who we become as adults. Because of the special bond that exists between a teacher and student, it opens the door for the teacher to be able to exploit a student sexually if they have that desire.

Again, we have to understand that sex between teachers and students is not a new phenomenon. The desire for a student to get involved sexually with their teacher often starts out with that childhood crush most students have at some point for one of their teachers. A teenager is going through puberty and becoming aware of the sexual side of their life, so these are new, raw feelings they are experiencing and not yet fully in control of. A student recognizes the importance their teacher plays in their life which also creates a special intimacy and bond between them. All of these working together can lead a student to fantasizing about having a sexual relationship with their teacher.

On the other side is the teacher. Let me say up front, there is NO JUSTIFICATION for a teacher having sex with a student. NONE! How it happens is not difficult to understand. A teacher is in a position of authority, trust, and power. No doubt for some it is an ego boost to have one of their students ?in love? with them. They are dealing with young, impressionable, naive, and inexperienced children and young adults. It opens the door and gives a teacher the opportunity to give into their carnal desires and sexually exploit their student

The fact that these teacher/student sexual relationships exist and always have is a given. The question today is why are we hearing about these relationships so frequently, what is going on in our society that is giving rise to all of these incidents of teacher and students having sex. First of all is the existence of 24/7 news, especially the cable networks like FOX, CNN, and MSNBC. While they are technically classified as “news” stations, they have really turned into little more than electronic versions of the National Enquirer. What drives their ratings is NOT the news of the day. It is the tabloid stories and high profile legal cases that have always captured people’s interest. Nothing fits this new form of tabloid journalism passed off as news better than a sex scandal between a teacher and student, especially if the teacher is a young, gorgeous FEMALE!

Let me address this hypocrisy for a moment. In the past, when you heard of a teacher/student sex scandals it was almost 100% of the time a male teacher with a female student. When these scandals came to light, the public was justifiably outraged and called on the criminal justice system to prosecute these men to the fullest extent of the law. With the recent rash of teacher/student sex scandals involving female teachers with male students, there simply doesn’t seem to be the same public outrage. As a matter of fact, it is accepted in some circles as a badge of honor for these young men to have sex with their female teachers and it is not condemned but applauded.

My friend, the damage done to a child is no different if it is a girl being sexually exploited by a male teacher or a boy being sexually exploited by a female teacher. The scars and effects of that sexual exploitation are something that child will have to deal with the rest of their life no matter if they are a boy or girl. How a person views sex is shaped by many factors, chief among them are those first sexual experiences they have in their life! It is equally as wrong and CRIMINAL for a female teacher as it is a male teacher and ANY teacher who exploits a child sexually should be fully prosecuted when caught!

What we are seeing in these teacher/student sex scandals is the by-product of a society deteriorating in moral decay. This is simply one of the results of a culture where people have grown up with no foundation of faith and live their lives in rebellion to God’s Word and Christ. The family has broken down, children are not told there is Absolute Truth and are left to decide for themselves about what is right and wrong, and people of all ages are bombarded literally 24/7 with sexual images through television, radio, music, movies, the Internet, magazines, and all forms of advertising. The lie has been told long enough, bold enough, and loud enough that sex is a natural part of life and you should never deny yourself the desires of your flesh.

Sex is a gift from God for a man and woman in the bonds of His Holy Institution of Marriage. PERIOD! All sex outside of marriage is a SIN! PERIOD! When people choose to ignore God’s plan for sex and sin in this area of their life, there are consequences as there are for any sin. One of the things that sets us apart from the animals is our ability to think, reason, make choices, and not live strictly by instincts alone. This is what Paul spoke of when he talked about controlling the flesh. You don’t have to give in to the carnal desires of your flesh, you have the ability to CONTROL YOUR FLESH through the strength God can give you. The problem is too many people refuse to even try. They are no different than a dog in heat that is simply giving in and acting on its base instincts.

I love you and care about you so much. The fact is for everyone of these teacher/student sex scandals you hear on the news, there are hundreds, even thousands you will never hear about. The vast majority of these scandals are never known by anyone other than the teacher and student involved. Whether it is a national news story or remains a private affair, the people involved know and most importantly GOD KNOWS! The price for giving in to a few moments of physical pleasure can be enormous. As with any sin, lives can be severely damaged and in some cases destroyed.

I will be praying for young adults reading this today. I pray you will realize that having sex with your teacher is a HORRIBLE idea. The fact is, having sex with ANYBODY outside of marriage is a horrible idea and there will be a price for sinning in this area of your life. God loves and cares about you so much. Follow His plan for sex and you will not only know His blessings but the beauty of this gift He has created for a man and woman in marriage.

I will also be praying for teachers. God has given you an awesome responsibility in helping to shape the lives of those young people He entrusts to you. For you to give into your carnal lusts and take advantage of a student for your sexual gratification is an act God will hold you accountable for. It isn’t worth it. You are damaging the life of the young person, not to mention putting your life, career, and freedom in jeopardy. I am very aware that young adults are far more advanced at an earlier age sexually than ever before. But that is no excuse. YOU are the adult and no matter what, YOU are the one that is ultimately responsible for any sexual activity between you and a student.

Lastly, I will be praying for parents. If you haven’t heard me over and over these past 15 years, hear me now. GET INVOLVED IN YOUR CHILDREN’S LIVES! As long as they live in your home YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE for them. The greatest ministry God gave you is to your children. Talk to them about sex and about what God’s plan is for sex. Talk to them about being aware of teachers and other adults who may try to take advantage of them sexually. Get to know your children’s teachers. Other than you, they will most likely have the greatest influence on the lives of your children so it is your business and duty to know who they are.

The bottom line to the increasing number of these teacher/student sex scandals is that they are a direct result of a society living each day without Christ and not being guided by the Truth of God’s Word. Adults with no fear of God who happen to be teachers. Children growing up in a world that is telling them there is nothing wrong with having sex of any kind with anyone you want. Once you take God out of the picture, ANYTHING is possible so seeing these teachers and students in sexual relationships should not really be such a shock.

For me personally, it only strengthens my resolve to keep doing what God has called me to do each day since the only real answer is bringing the Truth of God’s Word and the hope and love of Christ into people’s lives and seeing people get saved. Now more than ever we need to see a move of God’s Holy Spirit in this nation. As we watch these teacher/student sex scandals unfold, it is simply a reminder how low we have sunk as a people and how desperately we need Jesus!

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

Small Percentages of Our Society with a LOUD Voice

Leave a comment

(Matthew 26:3-5)

**ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, I heard that prophet Ezekiel is used in the Koran and mentioned by Muslims. How can that be and why?

ANSWER: Many cults and false religions plagiarize parts of the Bible. Much of the Qu’ran is simply plagiarism of the Old Testament, as is much of the Book of Mormon.

I am often amused at the various fringe groups that represent a VERY SMALL MINORITY of people on certain issues, who have been given a prominent “voice” in our society since most people are afraid to speak out against them. Pro-homosexual groups have found that all they have to do is threaten to call a person or group “homophobic”, and they can basically do whatever they want. The false religion of Islam has used these same tactics to advance their lies. PETA has effectively used “bully tactics” and “outrageous stunts” to force their minority viewpoint on society.

A few weeks ago, after 15 yrs I was vindicated by the government no less, having been called a liar and every pejorative you could imagine for telling people the truth that less than 2% of our society has chosen to engage in perverted, unnatural, unhealthy sex with people of the same sex. It was reported by the CDC that the actual percentage was 1.7% of our population! I also reject those who claim 70% or more in this nation are Christians. There may be that many identifying themselves as a Christian, but actual born-again men and women who have given their heart and life to Christ by faith is probably around 10%. THAT IS STILL 5 TIMES THE NUMBER OF THOSE WHO HAVE CHOSEN TO ENGAGE IN SEX WITH PEOPLE OF THE SAME SEX!

Listen, my point today is to help you have a better understanding that there are many different groups out there pushing their agenda on the masses. Many are coming directly after Christians, churches, and ministries! This IS NOT fear talking, this is NOT paranoia talking, this is simply common sense. IT IS ALREADY HAPPENING! In our nation today, it is not politically correct to say anything negative about people who choose to follow the cults and false relgions, it is not politically correct to say anything about people who choose to live whatever perverted lifestyle they have chosen to live, it is not politically correct to really say anything bad about anyone…except Bible-believing Christians!

Yet we are called “intolerant”. Let me tell you something. The Christian faith is the MOST tolerant faith there is. In the cults, in other faiths, outsiders are NOT welcome. FREE WILL is not part of the picture. IT WAS GOD OUR CREATOR, WHO GAVE US FREE WILL TO MAKE OUR OWN CHOICES. How intolerant is that? It was God who said, “whosoever believeth on Him shall have everlasting life”! WHOSOEVER MEANS ANYONE!!! The Christian faith is the most tolerant faith there is. It is ALL INCLUSIVE!

In today’s scripture, the Jewish leadership plotted to get rid of Jesus. There are people in the world today, in our very country, who would love to see the church eliminated and see the Word of God silenced. But as I write these words, I am reminded of that great song Bill and Gloria Gaither wrote that was a standard for the group ‘TRUTH’ for many years, THE CHURCH TRIUMPHANT. Here are the anointed words from part of that great song of the faith.

READ THEM SLOWLY . . . OVER AND OVER!!!

God Has Always Had A People! Many a foolish conquer made the mistake of thinking that because he had forced the Church of Jesus Christ out of sight, that he had stilled it’s voice and snuffed out it’s life. But God Has Always Had A People! The powerful current of a rushing river is not diminished because it is forced to flow underground. The purest water is the stream that bursts crystal clear into the sunlight after it has fought it’s way through solid rock. There have been charlatans who like Simon the magician, sought to barter on the open market that power which can not be bought or sold. But God Has Always Had A People! Men who could not be bought and women who were beyond purchase. Yes, God Has Always Had A People! There have been times of affluence and prosperity when the Church’s message was nearly diluted into oblivion by those who sought to make it socially attractive, neatly organized and financially profitable. It has been gold-plated, draped in purple and encrusted with jewels. It has been misrepresented, ridiculed, and scorned. These followers of Jesus Christ have been, according to the whim of the times, elevated as sacred leaders and martyred as heretics. Yet through it all, their marches on that powerful army of the meek, God’s chosen people that can’t be bought, flattered, murdered or stilled. On through the ages they march. The Church, God’s Church Triumphant, is Alive and Well! Now listen child of God. It’s alive! Discouraged pastor, it’s His Church and it’s alive! Lonely Missionary sow your seeds with confidence! It’s alive my broken hearted friend! Old saint, you’re not alone and forgotten . . . the Church is alive! Busy mother, cast your cares on Jesus! It’s alive young student. You’re not alone in serving the Lord! Faithful father, there’s rest in the Lord! The Church is alive! Cynical skeptic, you haven’t killed God with your noisy unbelief. He’s Alive! So family of God, raise your hands and praise the Lord. For the Church; God’s Church Triumphant, Is Alive and Well!

I love you and care about you very much. In these last days the people of God will be coming under more fire, more persecution, more challenges then ever before. But the key is, as the people of TRUTH, we must hold firm. We must NOT CONFORM to the political correctness of this world, but stand firm for the TRUTH that God has given to us in His Word. It will rarely be a popular position. But the fact is, we are not called to be popular, but faithful. We are not called to be conform to this world, but conform this world to God. We are not asked to hide our “light” in this dark world we live in, but let it shine brightly.

LET US NOT BE ASHAMED TO TELL THIS LOST AND HURTING WORLD, THERE IS ONLY ONE ANSWER, THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY, JESUS CHRIST!!!

PERSONALLY, I REFUSE TO BE POLITICALLY CORRECT . . . AND LIVEPRAYER WILL BE HERE EACH DAY, UNTIL THE LORD RETURNS TO SIMPLY SHARE THE TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD NO MATTER HOW UNPOPULAR THAT MAY BE! WILL YOU?????

***SEPTEMBER FINANCIAL UPDATE!!! As we are now 15 days into October, we are down to just $10,000 short of covering the balance of our September shortfall for our basic internet operations, as well as the $28,000 we are behind as of the end of September for our Chicago TV contract, leaving us requiring immediately $38,000 so we can begin to work on the $65,000 we require for our basic October internet and TV operations.

*$4,900 of that $10,000 internet shortfall is critically past due and I am praying for one person who can help me insure that amount is covered TODAY! HE IS ABLE!

By the grace of God, our core TV operations that covers the satellite feeding over 80 stations nationally and our internet feed our current! Chicago represents a market of over 10 million people that we reach on a major local station every Mon-Fri from 11p-1a (Chicago time). Since we are behind, the station has cut us back to just one hour for the balance of this month, and if we can’t get our account current they will cancel the program!

We have fought to keep the incredible blessing God bestowed on us this past February, and every month we have more and more people helping us from the Chicagoland market so that we are only a few months away from having those costs 100% covered by our viewers. *Please PRAY and if you have the ability to help me with the $28,000 we need to get current and be that “ram in the bush” or the “young man sacrificing his lunch so the multitudes could be fed,” contact me at: bkeller@liveprayer.com

Christmas is Only 11 Weeks Away Insuring You have the Best Christmas Ever

Leave a comment

(Luke 2:1-20)

In case you haven’t checked the calendar, 11 weeks from Thursday is Christmas. Oh yes, I said Christmas. The Holy Spirit led me to write this message today so that you can start preparing to make this the best and most blessed Christmas of your entire life. It is important for me to share this special word with you now, well enough in advance of all that goes on during the Christmas season, so that you can take the steps necessary to insure this Christmas is the most special Christmas of your life.

In just 6 weeks we will celebrate Thanksgiving and the Christmas season is in full swing. There will be the parties, the shopping, the food, the family and friends, the events at church, all leading up to Christmas morning. For most people, it is a very busy time of the year and no doubt Jesus will be mentioned and thought of during all of the hustle and bustle, but sadly not the real focus or attention. We get so busy “doing Christmas” that along the way we tend to lose sight of what this special time of year is really all about.

For most people every Christmas is about the same. You attend the various parties at work, with people you may share a hobby with, those in your neighborhood. Of course, there is always the shopping. Some start after Thanksgiving, others are shopping for Christmas now, and there are always those who do their shopping on December 24th. One of the highlights of the Christmas season is all the good food. It seems everywhere you go during this time of year there is an endless supply of scrumptious food to indulge in.

Obviously, Christmas would not be Christmas without family and friends. Each year it is the time of year for families to get together, for some the only time of the year they do, and catch up on each other’s lives. We often see those dear friends from the past during Christmas and have the opportunity to spend some time with them. No doubt one of the things that makes Christmas so special each year is being with our family and friends. Then there are the Christmas events at church. The great Christmas carols we sing during December, the Christmas cantatas, pageants, and plays every year. Those events at our church help to bring our hearts and minds back to the focus of what this season is really all about.

Christmas morning is always a special time in most homes. We are surrounded by our closest family members, enjoying special food, sharing presents, reliving the memories of Christmases past and making new memories. Yes, the parties, the presents, the food, the family and friends, the activities at church all make each Christmas a very special time of the year in our lives, even though most people do pretty much the exact same things each Christmas season.

That is why this Christmas I want to challenge you to make it the most blessed Christmas of your life ever. There is nothing wrong with the parties, and the presents, and the food ( just be prepared for all of the hours in the gym during January), being with family and friends, enjoying the activities at your church. The problem is that we get so busy in all of the activities of the Christmas season we tend to forget or not put enough emphasis on what this time of year is all about, and that is the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Sadly, it is easy to lose sight of Jesus in the midst of all that is going on in our lives and I want to help you make sure that doesn’t happen this Christmas.

I love you and care about you so much. I understand we ALL know the meaning of Christmas. The problem is we have heard the story of Christ’s birth so many times and we know in our head that Christmas is about Jesus, that we really don’t take the time we should each day during the Christmas season to let it sink into our hearts and get the full impact of the incredible miracle Christmas is.

This Christmas, I want to make sure that you stay focused each day in December on Jesus. This Christmas, I want to make sure that every day in December you are focused on the Lord and what really happened that first Christmas to change human history forever. I want to help you keep CHRIST in your Christmas so that it is the best and most blessed Christmas of your entire life!!!

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

Response to the Open Letter from Convicted Terrorist Nadal Hasan to Pope Francis

Leave a comment

(John 3:16, 14:6)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, you refer to these times as the “Hundred Days” when Satan will be throwing disease, natural disasters, wars and possible financial crisis at our country. What do you anticipate will happen after that?

ANSWER: It is a reference to the final 100 days of the year 2014, a year God told me last November would be the year we would see the sparks of a true national revival and the beginning of this nation turning back to God and His Truth. I believe that in my heart and also believe satan will stop at nothing to stop it from happening, and will reek all the havoc he can through acts of terror and war, an economic upheaval, disease and sickness, and fallen nature in these final 100 days to discourage people and try to cause them to lost hope. I believe it will backfire and will actually cause people to realize God is their only hope!!!

A response to the open letter from convicted terrorist Nadal Hasan to Pope Francis and Religious Leaders worldwide from Rev. Bill Keller, founder of Liveprayer.com and the world’s leading internet evangelist.

(Nidal Malik Hasan is a Muslim and former United States Army psychiatrist and Medical Corps officer who was convicted on 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted murder for his premeditated act of terror on November 9, 2009 at Ft. Hood in Texas. Hasan is currently on death row at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas awaiting execution.)

Mr. Hasan, you are nothing more than a living example of the word traitor and coward. You were blessed to be born in the United States, the greatest nation in the world that millions worldwide yearn to come to as your own parents did. You were educated at a top institution of higher learning like Virginia Tech and became part of the greatest military organization the world has ever known, the United States Army!

The one and only true God of the Bible, not the imaginary non-existent “allah” you call god and worship, blessed you with the intelligence to enter into the field of medicine and enabled you to train at the finest medical facilities in the world. In the meantime, the Army continued to promote you to the rank of major. You could not have dreamed of a greater life, a life that had incredible potential for greatness and honor.

Instead, because of the false religion of Islam you were born into and embraced, your life ended up as one of insignificance and utter disgrace. Your medical training was wasted, you betrayed the country that gave you a life few in this world could even dream of, and what you did at Ft. Hood were the actions of a gutless, treasonous worm of a human being! You are NOT a “soldier of allah,” only a pathetic disgrace of the uniform you wore!

You praise “jihad” as “the willingness to fight for All-Mighty Allah,” describing it as a test that elevates the “mujahadeen” who “are encouraged to inspire the believers.” You go on to say that, “fighters . have a greater rank in the eyes of Allah than believers who don’t fight.” These are just some of the lies your false religion has taught you and its’ adherents worldwide for the past 1400 years, just like it teaches that the entire world will one day become an Islamic state and all who refuse to convert to Islam will be killed.

Mr. Hasan, your polygamist, pedophile, and murdering false prophet Mohammed was inspired by satan to create Islam in 600ad, including the imaginary god he called allah, and the Qu’ran which is made up of poor plagiarism of the Old Testament along with evil teachings that have inspired you and the followers of Islam over its’ 1400 year history to kill innocent people (as you did), and commit acts of terror, barbarism, and war! You have fully embraced the satanically inspired lies of Islam, and when you die you there won’t be any virgins or “paradise,” only the judgment of the one true God of the Bible and the eternal fires of hell!!!

The good news Mr. Hasan is that you can escape God’s eternal wrath. Even though you will pay with your life for innocent lives you took and injured, God loved you so much that He sent Jesus to die for your sins. Yes Mr. Hasan, even you can be saved and enter into the Glory of Heaven when your life on this earth is finished. That is God’s promise to all men who will repent, ask Him to forgive you of your sins, and invite into their heart and life by faith His Son Jesus Christ.

Sadly for you Mr. Hasan, following the lies of Islam has destroyed all of the great things your life could have been. Instead of using the gifts and talents the God of the Bible blessed you with to help people, the teachings of Islam led you to throw away those gifts and talents and use your life as an instrument of pure evil to kill and destroy people. Instead of achieving greatness and honor, because you chose to follow the teachings of Islam you will be put to death as any other criminal and be forgotten.

However, if you would like to accept Jesus as your Savior Mr. Hasan, simply say these words as you embrace them into your heart by faith. ” Oh Jesus, I renounce the lies of Islam and ask you to forgive me of my sins. I believe in my heart and confess with my mouth that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior, my King, and I give my heart and life to you today by faith. Come into my life Jesus and save my soul, AMEN!”

Mr. Hasan, God has blessed me during this season with an international ministry that reaches millions of people around the world every day. I can assure you that the Liveprayer family will be praying for you and for you to turn from the lies of Islam and to the Truth of the Bible and faith in Jesus Christ. What you choose to do Mr. Hasan is your decision, just like it is the decision each person has to make to in their life to reject or accept Jesus Christ as their Savior by faith. I will be praying for you.

***I love you and care about you so much. Please pray with me today for the salvation of Nidal Hasan. It is God’s desire that ALL come to repentance, that none be lost! The same Jesus who died for my sins and yours died for the sins of Nidal Hasan as well! Also pray that as this letter is read by people around the world through various media outlets, God will use these words to help expose the lies of Islam and bring many to faith in Jesus Christ!!!

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

Bill Keller
