What have You Always Dreamed of But Never Done

Leave a comment

(Mark 9:23, Psalms 37:4)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, according to the news, Pro-Life people gathered together, held hands in a circle, and sang “Amazing Grace.” The Pro-Choice people responded by chanting “Hail Satan.” What do you make of that?

ANSWER: First, there is no such thing as pro-choice. If you support life, you are pro life. If you don’t, you are pro DEATH! It only makes sense since those who support and treat life as the gift from God it is understand His amazing grace. Likewise, those who think it is OK to slaughter innocent babies are doing the bidding of the one they chant about..SATAN!

Jesus said in Mark 9:23, “Everything is possible for him who believes.”

The Nike sporting goods company used a very simple but powerful phrase in one of their recent ad campaigns, “Just do it.” This is going to be a little different Devotional today. I want to take a moment right now before you do anything else and simply ask the Lord to open year heart to hear this message today since it has to do with faith. Now, let me ask you a question. What is something that you have always dreamed of but have never done? Maybe it is to see a certain place or do a certain thing. What is something that you have always dreamed of but have never done?

The writer of Hebrews defines faith in Hebrews 11:1 as, “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Note the key words in this definition are SURE and CERTAIN. True Biblical faith is not something we simply hope for, but we are SURE of what we hope for. True Biblical faith is not just a blind leap into the dark, we are CERTAIN of what we do not see. That is why Jesus told us that, “EVERYTHING is possible for him who believes.” Not a few things, not certain things, not most things…EVERYTHING!

Today, I want to challenge your faith and encourage you to fulfill your dreams. As I share with you often, this journey through life is very short. It is over before we even know it. We know the Bible teaches us that tomorrow is promised to none of us, that each day is literally a gift from God. We must treat each day as the precious gift it is and make the most of it. Too many people live their lives in those “ruts.” You get comfortable in making life work for you on a daily basis and get locked into a routine that you rarely if ever deviate from. You complain how boring life is, how unexciting life is, when the problem is not life but the way you choose to live it each day!

Over these past 22 years, I have ministered to and walked with hundreds of people from 10 to 97 in the final days of their life. In almost every case the person shared with me their regrets about things they had always wanted to do but didn’t, places they had always wanted to see but never went. Now, in their final hours of this life they felt bad for not having taken the time or made the effort to see and do all of the things they had wanted to do.

Let me ask you again, what is something that you have always dreamed of but have never done???

Here is my word for you today, my challenge. Sit down with a paper and pen and answer the above question on the paper. Write down what it is you have dreamed of but never done. Maybe you always wanted to see the Great Wall of China. Write it down. Maybe you have always wanted to learn how to ride a horse. Write it down. There is not one person reading these words today that doesn’t have something you have always wanted to do or some place you have always wanted to visit. Everyone has a dream they have not seen fulfilled.

After you have written down what it is you have always dreamed of, take that paper and pray over it. Pray in faith that God is going to let you see your dream come true. God is not some magic genie in a lamp that we rub and make wishes to. However, God is the One who promised that, “everything is possible for him who believes.” God is the One who promised to, “Give you the desires of your heart.” As a follower of Jesus Christ you have very right to hold God to His promises. There is no dream that is too big for God!!!

This journey through life is exciting, exhilarating, and can be a wonderful experience. What I find in so many lives I deal with each day is that they have allowed the trials and tribulations of this life to overwhelm them to the point they have stopped dreaming. They are simply content with not living in turmoil and have forgot how to dream, let alone believe their dreams can come true.

Your life, just like your relationship with the Lord will be exactly what you choose it to be. We ALL have to face the problems that life throws our way. That is simply part of living in this sin-filled and fallen world. There are always problems, things that don’t go the way we expect or like. The key is do you allow the problems of life to choke off your joy? Do you allow the trials you face to steal your peace. Do you allow the challenges of life to rob you of the abundance Christ promised you?

I love you and care about you so much. I want to encourage you to start living each day in faith, the faith that “everything is possible for him who believes.” That doesn’t just mean being victorious over the day-to-day trials of this life, but seeing your dreams fulfilled as well. I want to encourage you today to take the piece of paper you have written down whatever you have always dreamed about and work to make your dream a reality! God will help you.

Don’t listen to the liar satan tell you don’t have the money, you don’t have the time, it can’t be done, or any other lie he will tell you to discourage you. Who are you going to believe, the liar who says your dream won’t come true or God who promised you that “everything is possible?”

This message today is MUCH deeper than just challenging you to make your dream come true. Once you do whatever it is you have dreamed about, once you make that dream a reality, you are going to want to make your next dream come true. After you see that dream become a reality, you will want to make the next dream come true. Over time, you are not just living life, you are making the most of each day and instead of simply dreaming, YOU ARE LIVING YOUR DREAMS EACH DAY!

Jesus promised us, “Everything is possible for him who believes.” Don’t dream it, DO IT!!!

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

Liveprayer is in Peril

Leave a comment

(John 3:16, 14:6)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, the more I read my Bible, the more discouraged I’m becoming about the future of mankind. God repeatedly helps and forgives people and they always return to their evil ways. It almost makes me not want to read the Bible which I do daily. I admire the dedication you have for saving souls without getting discouraged!

ANSWER: Sadly, man hasn’t changed since the Garden of Eden. The cycle of sin by the children of Israel is clearly detailed in the OT. The hope is God always has His faithful people at all times who faithfully serve Him and share His love with those who don’t know Him. Even today in the midst of the all out rebellion to God and His Truth, there is a remnant, those who won’t bow their knee to baal. Like those in His remnant in past generations, may eternity show us faithful to our Lord and proclaiming His love and Truth with our last breath of this life!

Liveprayer is in peril! We are on the verge of seeing God use the work He birthed and sustained for over 15 years here at Liveprayer in these final 100 days of 2014, sparking a nationwide revival and seeing this nation turn back to God and His Truth! No other major Christian leader is making this stand. I am nothing but a servant of God, many claim a modern day prophet, who only wants to see souls saved, and our nation under the blessings and protection of Almighty God once again. That will never happen through politics, but ONLY if we repent and turn back to God and His Truth as the people of Nineveh did!!!

GOD HAS ALLOWED MY VOICE HAD BEEN HEARD BY TENS OF MILLIONS OVER THESE YEARS OF FAITHFUL SERVICE BECAUSE THOSE WHO LOVE THE LORD HAVE HAD NO VOICE!!!

After more than 15 years online, Liveprayer is read daily by over 2.5 million people worldwide. Over 55% are NOT Christians, simply people looking to see the events in life and this world through another lens which has always been our target audience. I took on the top imam’s representing the false religion of Islam before anyone else dared to. CAIR, the Muslim version of the ACLU that bullies and tries to intimidate anyone in the media who dares to tell the truth about Islam, put their assets into silencing me back in 2007 without success!

After doing my LIVEPRAYER TV program for 5 years every Mon-Fri on a CBS owned and operated station in Tampa, the 12 TV market in the nation, CAIR succeeded in intimidating the CBS corporate office in New York City to take me off the air. CBS actually told me that they would keep my program on the air if I wouldn’t talk about Islam, but I told them that NOBODY is going to silence me from telling the truth about any of satan’s tools who are out to “kill, steal, and destroy!”

As ISIS and other Islam groups have risen up with the expressed goal of destroying our nation and turning the United States into a Muslim caliphate, killing all who will not bow their knee to allah, I have tried to warn people for over 15 years that Islam has been about dominance, terror, and DEATH for the 1400 years it has existed. Anyone who thinks this is not what the objective of Islam is, are clueless and don’t understand what this false religion born in the pits of hell is about!!!

Since May of 2013, the Liveprayer TV program we started in March of 2003 has been back on the air in stations around the nation “live” Monday thru Friday from Midnight-2am EDT. The program is also available to everyone in the US and around the world on cellphones, tablets, or any other wireless device! On this unique program, people call in for prayer and hear the issues of the day dealt with from a Biblical worldview.

***As we head into the final 100 days of 2014, we require the final $36,000 of our $40,000 internet operations for September, $25,000 for our September TV operations, and the final $15,000 to pay off the balance of our shortfall on our Chicago TV contract. That is $76,000 over the next week to end September with all of our internet and TV operations current. Add to that $195,000 to cover our monthly internet and TV operations ($40,000 internet, $25,000 TV) for October, November, and December.

THAT IS A TOTAL OF $271,000 TO END 2014 IN 100 DAYS WITH 100% OF OUR INTERNET AND TV OPERATIONS CURRENT HEADING INTO 2015!!!!!!! I AM ASKING EVERYONE WHO LOVES LIVEPRAYER, EVERYONE WHO HAS ACCEPTED JESUS AS THEIR SAVIOR, TO HELP ME TODAY. IF IT IS $1, $10, $50, $100, $1,000, OR MORE. THAT IS BETWEEN YOU AND THE LORD. GIVE AS YOU ARE ABLE, BUT GIVE IS WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES!!!

I am so excited, since leading a national revival and helping to turn this nation back to God and His Truth will be the final work of Liveprayer. Everything I have labored for the past 22 yrs, the past 15+ yrs literally 24/7/365, will finally be realized in this amazing presence that is NOT geared towards Christians, but the masses outside the four walls of the church who have rejected Jesus and Biblical Truth. As we move forward, currently we are seeing over 2,000 souls every week come to faith in Jesus. That is 2,000 souls every week who will be in Glory for all eternity when they die, as opposed to the flames of hell!

Satan HATES Liveprayer! I have refused to play the game of Christian politics to raise money. I have refused to compromise the TRUTH for money. Beck and the other tools of satan can’t BUY me off like they do modern day Judas’ like Barton, Hagee, Robison, and so many others, to give them credibility they don’t deserve with Christians.

I have REFUSED to be part of the Christian TV/radio, world. I don’t condemn those who do, but sadly it is preaching to the choir, not those who need the Truth, and how they generate tens of millions for buildings, huge staffs, and things like private jets, multiple mansions, and fleets of luxury cars. No, I have taken God’s Truth and the Gospel to those who have never heard it, or have never been confronted with it..for FREE ASKING NOTHING! That is what Liveprayer has been about, since in the end, it is the LOST who come to know Jesus by faith who will led this nation back to God and His Truth!

As I come to you today, I have serious needs. Liveprayer is still $36,000 short of covering our basic September operations, and $25,000 for our September TV budget. On top of that, we have the $15,000 we need to pay off the balance of the shortfall from this summer on our Chicago TV contract. That is $76,000 we need in these final 7 days of the month! However, I know that if everyone gives as they are able and simply goes to our donation link ( http://www.liveprayer.com/donation.cfm ) , giving via their credit card on a secure server, thru PayPal, or a check, we can end this month with all of our financial obligations current!

I know if everyone will follow the Biblical mandate to “give according to your ability to give”, these needs can be taken care of over the next few days. With over 2.5 million who get the Daily Devotional, it is only 1/4 of 1% who ever give to help us with our operating budget. If you have been blessed but have never given to Liveprayer or haven’t for a while, please take a moment and pray about what God is asking you to do today to help me!

THIS NEED IS CRITICAL TO OUR SURVIVAL AND I WOULD NEVER SEND A MESSAGE LIKE THIS IF IT WASN’T CRITICAL! PLEASE DON’T EXPECT SOMEONE ELSE TO DO WHAT GOD IS CALLING YOU TO DO!!!

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

I love and care about you so much. We are in perilous time. For one of the few times in over 15 years, Liveprayer is in danger of being silenced. Amazingly, not because of preaching the Truth those who oppose God would love to see silenced, but because we simply can’t cover the basic operations to get God’s Word out to the lost and hurting masses!

We are on the verge of seeing this nation turning back to God and His Truth. Nobody else is making this stand except Liveprayer. I refuse to do anything for the purpose of raising money, otherwise, I would be on the Christians networks raking in millions telling people what they want to hear. I am an evangelist, some call a modern day prophet of God, who simply wants to see souls saved and our nation spared God’s ultimate wrath the punishment. That will ONLY happen if we repent, turn back to God and His Truth!

We can do that, just like the people of Nineveh did. However, I need your prayers, your support, so we can keep pressing on. We are so close, I will not allow our work of the Lord over these last 22 years to fail because of a few thousand dollars. Please help me today. Help me lead this nation back to God and His Truth before His wrath and judgment rains down upon us as it has so many nations before. Help me to lead lost souls to faith in Jesus! Our time is now. Our moment is now. Help me now!

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

The Final 100 Days of 2014

Leave a comment

(Ephesians 6:12)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, what is the difference between a Christian like you and I, and “Pharisaic Judaism?”

ANSWER: The “Pharisees” represented the religious views, practices, and hopes of the Jewish people in the time of the Second Temple and in opposition to the priestly Sadducees. They were accordingly scrupulous observers of the Levitical Law as interpreted by the Scribes in accordance with tradition.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12

THE FINAL 100 DAYS OF 2014! Today, we being the final 100 days of 2014. In November of last year, I shared a critical message with you on what God showed me about this year and the role Liveprayer would play as we would begin to see the sparks of a true national revival and true repentance as our nation turned back to God and His Truth!!!

Here is what you will see unfold over the next 100 days as we close out the year. There will be major wars in the heavenlies where all of the real battles take place! Those battles will manifest here on earth as satan unleashes hell on earth in the form of numerous acts of terrorism, incredible financial upheaval, destructive acts of fallen nature, and massive outbreaks of health problems caused by different diseases. In some way, every man, woman, and child will have their lives affected in some way in these final 100 days of 2014!

Sadly, because of our unbridled sin and rebellion to God and His Word, worshipping false gods and idols, God’s hand of protection will not be found as the Almighty allows hell literally to be unleashed on our nation over the final 100 days of this year. As I have tried to warn people virtually daily for over a decade, unless we turned back to God and Biblical Truth, have a “Nineveh moment,” this nation would experience the full wrath and judgment of God!

WHAT WE DO SPIRITUALLY IN THESE FINAL 100 DAYS, AS GOD’S ALLOWS SATAN TO UNLEASH HELL ON EARTH OVER THESE NEXT 100 DAYS, WILL ULTIMATELY DETERMINE THE FUTURE OF THE UNITED STATES!!!

Here is the Daily Devotional God wrote through me November 12th of last year!!!

The Promise of 2014

(Jonah Chapter 3)

***THIS IS A SPECIAL WORD FROM GOD THAT HAS BEEN PERCOLATING IN ME FOR MANY, MANY MONTHS NOW. IT IS A WORD YOU NEED TO READ DAILY FOR THE NEXT WEEK IN ORDER TO INTERNALIZE IT. IT IS A WORD I AM ASKING YOU TO POST ON ALL OF YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA SITES AND EMAIL TO EVERY PERSON YOU KNOW. IT IS A WORD THAT YOU NEED TO SHARE WITH EVERY PERSON IN YOUR LIFE SINCE IT IS A WORD OF HOPE AND A WORD OF REAL ANSWERS FOR THIS LAST NATION ON THE VERGE OF DESTRUCTION BY GOD HIMSELF!!!

2014! Back around this time, almost 6 years to the day in 2007, I shared with you that coming in 2008 would be the very clear and visible judgment of God upon this nation for our sins, gross wickedness, and turning from our Creator to the false gods and idols of the world. In very early 2008, the real estate bubble burst draining trillions out of the economy and affecting a large percentage of people in this nation. It led to one of the worst economic downturns in our nation’s history and we still have yet to fully recover from it.

Later that year, as I warned leading up to the 2008 Presidential election, we elected a true enemy of God who as I correctly identified, would become the most pro-death, leading advocate for the radical homosexual agenda, enemy of Israel President in history who opposes God on every major spiritual issue of the day! Throughout 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and this year, we have seen an incredible uptick in the number of natural disasters, the Supreme Court uphold the perversion of God’s Holy Institution of Marriage and the Family, the continued economic hardships for tens of millions, a complete destruction of the health care industry that will end up affecting EVERYONE, and a rapid, visible decay of our society as a whole.

My friend, God’s wrath and judgment is being poured out on this nation as we speak and it is intensifying with each passing day, week, month, and year!!! In the midst of this intense spiritual decline in our nation, I have been virtually alone in not just sounding the trump of warning that if we don’t turn back to God and His Truth we are doomed as a nation, but in sharing a real plan to make that happen. Like Nineveh, the pronouncement of God’s judgment which will destroy this nation has been declared as has the only way to avoid that judgment. The only thing that remains to be seen is if we, as a nation, will heed the warning and turn back to God and His Truth as the people of Nineveh did, or ignore the warning and be destroyed!

I come to you today to declare that I believe the year 2014 will be the year…we as a nation do wake up and do begin to turn back to God and His Truth! As a nation we are in a spiritual abyss, and as a people are lost, confused, sad, and hurting. There are enough people today looking for true hope and true answers to spark a true revival across our nation! Let me assure you that this revival will NOT come through the church initially, if at all! The church is too political, weak, apathetic, compromised, fragmented, lost in its’ own agenda, and building their own fiefdoms to even care about building God’s Kingdom or about the lost and hurting masses right outside of their very doors!

No my friend, this revival is going to come through people who this very moment are drunk, high, in prison, and lost in the lies of the cults, false religions, and new age movement. It will come through people in bed this very moment with someone who is not their spouse, those looking to cheat their neighbor out of money, as well as those who have never given God a thought in their life. These are the people who will have their hearts softened to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ, who won’t be bound by the shackles of the churchworld, who will be innocently on fire to tell everyone they know and those they don’t about how Jesus changed their life and can change theirs too!

As the now 14+ years of Liveprayer have gone by, I have become more and more aware of God’s plan to use this instrument He created in these final days to be the spark to this national revival. I never fully understood why God called someone who didn’t even own a computer in late 1998 to begin an internet minsitry, especially since there was no such thing at the time. I never fully understood why God in 2003 called me to do a TV program, not on Christian stations, but secular stations. Not the typical pre-recorded preaching/teaching program, but a “live,” interactive program dealing with the issues of the day from a Biblicla worldview that most of the viewers were either ignorant of or had rejected.

During these many years and as we celebrated our 14th anniversary at the end of last August, the tens of millions of lives we had impacted online and through TV, the 100 million emails for prayer we had received and responded to, the 7 million praise reports we had archived, the 700,000 souls we know of who had accepted the Lord by faith, was what our work was about. During the past year, God assured me it has been, but an even greater work was still before us.

In 2008, God led me to start the Jonah Project (
http://www.liveprayer.com/jonah/ ), a vision to lead our nation back to God and His truth. It was too early, the people couldn’t see 5 years ago how close we were to God’s ultimate judgment on this nation. The people outside the four walls of the church weren’t hurting enough, in enough pain, or really open to the REAL Truth and the REAL answers for their life. The nation is now ready, it is ripe for a real national revival. The people are ready. They are aware there has to be more to life than what they are seeing and living each day.

With our long standing internet presence, my many appearances in the secular media, bringing back the TV program was the final critical piece we needed. Last May, we re-launched the program on a small network with about 30-40 small markets around the country
(http://www.liveprayer.com/liveprayertv.cfm). Our goal was to have a large national footprint by the end of the first year back on the air. A presence around the nation “live” 2 hours a night, 5 nights a week, large enough the media and the world could not just ignore what we were saying. A PRESENCE THAT WAS EMPOWERED BY THE HOLD SPIRIT TO OPEN THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF THE LOST WE WOULD BE REACHING THAT THERE IS TRUE HOPE AND REAL ANSWERS!!!

As those who have followed Liveprayer over the years, you know that my heart beats to bring God’s Truth to the marketplace, to reach the lost masses, to pray for people in their hour of need, and to see souls won to faith in Jesus Christ. In addition to the current network we are on, we have an opportunity to begin airing the program “live” every Monday-Friday from Midnight-2am EST on a major station that covers 10 million people in the Chicagoland area that includes northern Indiana and southern Michigan. This station is on every major cable outlet as well as DirecTV and DISH in that market.

I am sharing this with you since we have a tentative contract in place with this major station that we have until November 29th to execute, with the first 4 weeks of airtime, $25,160, due at the time of execution. We have worked out an incredible rate for the first year of the contract of $6,290 a week, or $1,258 a night. To have the ability to reach 10 million people across Chicagoland “live” for 2 hours, 5 nights a week for under $1,300 is an incredible open door.

(Note: We ultimately were able to get that contract and begin airing our program in the Chicagoland market this past February and by the grace of God we are still on in that market today!)

A side benefit to being able to lock this in will the open doors it will give us as of the first of the year with media groups looking for existing programming with a track record to syndicate. Just like I told you in late 2007 God’s judgment would begin to fall in very visible ways and we have been living through it for 5 years now. I am telling you that the year 2014 is the year we are going to see a real national revival break out throughout our land, with Liveprayer.com and the Liveprayer TV program playing a big role in sparking that revival!!!!

Thank you so much for your prayers, love, and sacrifice. In the year 2014, we will be doing something no other ministry is doing, using our internet and our TV platform to bring the Body of Christ together as one with one voice and literally change the spritual direction of this nation while bringing lost souls to faith in Jesus Christ!!!

I love and care about you so much. After over 14 yrs of ministering to the lives of millions worldwide, I fully understand the frustration of the prophets in the Old Testament. They lived and dedicated their lives to the Lord. They refused to compromise the Truth. They refused to sell out. Money was NOT their objective! Yet, they watched the priests of the day compromise and sell out and live lives of luxury while they had to beg for the crusts of bread!

I know this. God has blessed Liveprayer over these many years because we have NOT compromised or sold out. We have not raised money to buy private jets and buildings, only to share His Truth and hope with the lost and hurting. Liveprayer IS God’s answer for this nation. Friends like you have prayed, sacrificed, and stood by my side to help me accomplish all we have. I am asking you today, STAND WITH ME TODAY!

i DO LOVE YOU AND CARE ABOUT YOU SO MUCH!!! GOD IS SPEAKING TO EACH OF YOU AND THIS NATION TODAY AS WE EMBARK ON THESE FINAL, TUMULTUOUS 100 DAYS OF 2014. WHAT WE DO OVER THESE FINAL DAYS OF THE YEAR WILL DETERMINE THE SPIRITUAL COURSE OF OUR NATION AND WHETHER WE WILL SEE THE FINAL JUDGMENT OF GOD POURED OUT, OR IF WE WILL TURN BACK TO GOD AND ONCE AGAIN ENJOY HIS BLESSINGS!!!

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

Bill Keller

(Exodus 35:22)

***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.

“All who were willing, men and women alike, came and brought gold jewelry of all kinds: brooches, earrings, rings and ornaments. They all presented their gold as a wave offering to the LORD.”

OUR NATION’S ONLY HOPE! Several years ago, I created an infomercial that to begin to bring together in one unified body, all those who profess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior despite their church or denominational affiliation. You can watch it here:
http://secure.goldforsouls.com/video1.cfm As I share often, when you take your last breath, there will only be two lines in Heaven, one for the lost and the other for the saved. If we are to turn this nation back to God and Biblcial Truth, the only hope is to bring together all those who claim Christ as Lord into one unified body and bring His Truth, hope, and salvation to this lost and dying land!

Back in 2008, God gave me the plan to make this happen. It is the Jonah Project. A few years later, God gave me one way to help finance this effort. It is Gold for Souls. 2,900 years ago, God called a man named Jonah to go to the city of Nineveh and warn the people of that great city of God’s coming judgment if they didn’t repent, turn from their sin and back to God. We know that Jonah ran from that call and God had to get his attention by sending a great fish after him. After that experience, Jonah decided it was better to obey God and went to Nineveh, delivered the message God called him to deliver to the people, and Nineveh repented, turned back to God, and was spared His judgment. As wicked as this nation is, I have hope that we can repent and turn back to God just like the people of Nineveh did!!!

Here is the reality of where we are at today. We have forsaken God for the false gods and idols of the world (read God’s warning about this in Deut. 8:19,20). A man who is an enemy of God is our President, allowed to rise to that powerful office as part of God’s judgment on this wicked nation. The economy is not going to get better anytime soon, it is continuing to get worse. The heart of our society, marriage and the family, has been decimated. We are in all out rebellion to God and evil operates virtually unopposed throughout this nation and world. Our nation and this world is overdue the wrath and judgment of God for our gross wickedness. Now is the hour for the message of Jonah to be delivered to this nation before it is too late. Our time is up and we are currently operating on God’s grace and mercy at this point

The goal of the Jonah Project is to bring the Gospel to every soul on the face of the earth and give each person the opportunity to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior. In addition, we have called this nation to repentance and to turn back to God and the Truth of His Word or face His wrath and judgment. We are making that call of repentance to the other nations of the world as well, warning them of God’s impending judgment if they refuse.

The key to the Jonah Project is a major daily presence on secular television. On May 6th of 2013, by God’s grace we were able to re-launch the Liveprayer TV program that is seen in over 40 markets “live” every Monday-Friday from Midnight to 2am EDT (
http://www.liveprayer.com/liveprayertv.cfm ). Now that we are back on the air, as we are into our 17th month, the goal is by the end of the year to be sundicated in all of the major markets across this nation.

There is NOT ONE PERSON with a daily presence on secular TV who is reaching the non-Christian masses, dealing with the issues of the day and in people’s lives from a Biblical worldview and sharing the fact Jesus is the only hope for this life and for all eternity. This national TV will not only be used to call this nation to repentance and to turn back to God, but will be the only true voice in the market place for God’s Truth. Like Liveprayer on the Internet, it will soon become a place for the remnant to gather and be mobilized to take action in these last days.

*Last November, I shared with you in a Daily Devotional “the promise of 2014!” Here is a link to that Daily Devotional:
http://www.liveprayer.com/ddarchive3.cfm?id=5387 As we prepare to begin the final 100 days of 2014 on Monday, that promise is now before us!!!

To fund this great effort, God has given me the vision to allow people who can’t donate cash, to sacrifice their old gold, diamonds, and jewelry. One afternoon God began to speak to me. I went to the Bible and was reading that when Moses built the Tabernacle, David the Temple, the people brought what they could donate. In many cases it was gold and other precious gems. Often, the people took their tithe to the temple in the form of gold. Gold is the most mentioned precious metal in the Bible. I realize that many people who want to simply don’t have the cash to donate to God’s work here at Liveprayer. However, most everyone has some old gold, broken jewelry, other valuables that they can give.

Over the last few years, several companies like Cash4Gold have taken in hundreds of millions of dollars by getting people to send them their old gold and jewelry. In return, they were given a check for what amounts to about 10 cents on the dollar of the worth of what people send in. In these desperate financial times, they have had no problem finding people willing to send them their old, broken, unused gold, even though they knew they are only getting a fraction of what it is worth. Business at pawn shops around the nation is booming. Again, people are parting with their valuables, even though they are getting a fraction of their worth.

Gold for Souls works much like these worldly operations, except instead of getting a check back for a fraction of the value of the items you send in, we send you a donation receipt for the full value of your items! For example, if you send one of these many sites $100 worth of materials, you will get back a check for around $10. By donating your valuables to Gold for Souls, we will send you a donation receipt that you can write off your taxes for the full $100.

The big question is why donate your valuables when you can get at least some cash for them. SOULS!!! The little amount you get back from one of these other companies will be gone in a short period of time, and in the scheme of things, is not going to dramatically change your economic situation. However, what you donate to Gold for Souls will not only get you a tax deductible donation receipt for what you send in, but it will pay you eternal dividends since the funds will be used to fund the Jonah Project to lead eternal souls to faith in Jesus Christ!!!

I can’t think of a better use of that old gold and jewelry than to help bring the hope of Christ to the hurting, and re-route souls on a conveyor belt to hell to heaven!!! Also, as our secular media presence grows, so will our influence and ability to take a bold a visible stand for Christ and Biblcial Truth in the secular media. What an incredible return for your sacrifce!!!!

It is our division that has kept us from having the influence and impact on the spritual course of this nation. Sadly, all Christian leaders today are only worrying about promoting and enriching their minsitry and building their kingdom and not God’s! Sadly, there is NOBODY who has a plan to create a presence in the secular media, bring together ALL Christians regardless of denomination, with the sole purpose of saving souls and leading this nation back to God and Biblcial Truth, NOT ONE!

Everyone reading these words has something in your jewelry box that you can donate. Just as important, you have family, friends, people you work with, go to church with, who have something in their jewelry box they can donate. I am asking you to do four things for me today. 1) Go to:
http://www.liveprayer.com/jonah/ . Watch the vision video to fully understand the vision of the Jonah Project and get signed up. 2) Go to: http://secure.goldforsouls.com/ . The website is very user friendly and it will take you through the simple steps of how you can donate your old gold, jewelry, and precious items to Liveprayer. 3) I need you to forward this email to every person you know. Please encourage them to donate some of their old gold and jewelry and than forward this message to all of the people they know. 4) PRAY! With God, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

I love you and care about you so much. Now more than ever I need your prayers and support. The spiritual direction of this nation can be changed if the people of God will come together as one for that specific purpose. Ministries raise tens of millions that goes to pay Christian networks for airtime in order for them to fly around in private planes and live like the rulers of small nations. Churches raise millions for buildings to preach to hundreds who are already Christians. We have abandoned the culture and left the eternal souls of men to the wolves of the world!!! In the process, our nation is in spiritual freefall and on the verge of God’s judgment and wrath!!!

Our only hope is not going to be found in a political ideology, but by turning back to the God of the Bible and HIS Truth. May Almighty God find each one of us faithful for doing our part to make that happen! He has given us the plan in the Jonah Project. He has given us the way to fund it through the gold and jewelry Christians have accumulated over the years that lays in a box. It is time for action, will you help me???

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

My Calling from God is to Be An Evangelist

Leave a comment

(John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8,9; Romans 10:9-11)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, how do we know what God has called us to do, especially if our God given talents are creative and not social. I always have thought the best talent God can give a person is the ability to speak and communicate with other people.

ANSWER: Everyone has been given different gifts and talents. We usually know what our gifts are because they are things we do well and enjoy. Often, over our life we may use many different gifts and talents. Just as we give of our treasure, equally important is giving the Lord those gifts and talents He has blessed us with to serve Him and for His glory!

My calling from God is to be an Evangelist. Seeing the lost won to Christ is what God has called me to do with my life. Over these past 22 years I have had the joy of sharing the hope of Christ with millions of people in person, through radio and television, in various publications, as well as over the Internet. I am grateful to God for each day He blesses me with to serve Him and pray that I will be faithful to His work until the day He calls me home.

One of the biggest lessons I learned very early in my ministry was the importance of a person not making a decision for Christ based on sheer emotion, but to understand that the choice they were making to accept Jesus Christ into their heart by faith was a life-changing event. I have no desire to scare a person, manipulate them in any way, or use emotional tactics to get them to accept Christ. You see, if a person is not making that commitment from their heart by faith, they are simply saying some words and at best having an emotional moment.

For a person to be saved, or “born again,” they don’t need to understand systematic theology or to have even read the Bible. What they do need to know is that they are a sinner and that it was Jesus Christ who died for their sins. They need to understand that they are made in God’s image and will live for all eternity. The choice they have to make is whether they will live forever with God their Creator or apart from Him.

By asking Jesus to forgive them of their sins and asking Him into their heart and life, not only will their sins be washed away but they will have the assurance that when this life is over they will spend all eternity with the Lord. There are no magic words to save you. What we often call the “Sinner’s Prayer” is simply a guide for the person who is making that commitment to know Christ as their Savior. It is putting into words what they are doing in their heart by faith.

It is important for a person who makes that commitment to Christ to understand that they are not joining the Boy Scouts or becoming a member of the PTA. Getting saved is not like joining a club that becomes just one part of your life. When you get saved, Christ BECOMES your life. The Bible says that when you ask Christ into your heart and life, it is no longer your life, that it now belongs to the Lord. People have got to understand that when they confess Christ as their Savior, they are making an eternal commitment to the Lord. You are surrendering your life to Jesus Christ!

At the moment you are saved two wonderful things happen. First of all, you are indwelled by the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of the living God now resides within you. Your body literally becomes the temple of the Holy Spirit. Once you are saved, when you drink, smoke, do drugs, engage in sex outside of marriage, it is no different than if you were drinking in church, smoking a cigarette in church, doing drugs in the sanctuary, or having sex with a person who is not your spouse right on the altar. That is why we have to do all that we can to stay pure since we are literally the temple of the Holy Sprit that indwells each Believer.

It is God’s Holy Spirit that empowers the Believer to live up to the standards of God and His Word. It is the power of His Spirit that allows the Believer to live a victorious and overcoming life. The Holy Spirit opens our hearts and minds to understand the Truth of God’s Word. It is the Holy Spirit indwelling every Believer that guides and directs our lives. Paul said that we have to “die to self daily. What he is saying is that each morning we have to surrender our lives afresh to the power of God that is within us so that we can live a life that is pleasing and acceptable to the Lord.

The second wonderful thing that happens at the moment we are saved is we begin the sanctification process, or that process of being more like Christ each day. You see, that process can’t even begin until a person is saved since you have to have the power of the Holy Sprit to give you the strength to begin transforming yourself from the old man into a new man. The Bible proclaims that when you are saved you become a “new creature in Christ.” This is the life-changing experience I spoke of. It doesn’t happen overnight but over time. It is a process.

The four critical elements to this process are reading God’s Word each day, praying each day, getting into a good Bible believing, teaching church, and finding an older man or woman in the faith to disciple you. You have got to understand that after a person gets saved, the next morning they wake up in the same bed, in the same house, with the same family, and with the same problems. On the outside it looks as if nothing has changed, and it hasn’t. The change took place on the inside. The process of transforming the rest of your life is something that you will be engaged in until the moment you die.

Your spiritual growth or becoming more like Jesus, is dependent on you and how much time and effort you put into that process. That is why it is critical for all Believers to read their Bible and pray every day, to be part of a good church, and to have people in your life who are more spiritually mature to disciple you. As you grow and mature in your faith you begin to understand who God is and what He desires of you. You begin to realize that He has a plan and purpose for each one of our lives and start to fulfill that plan and purposes in your life. It is an incredible life-long journey that makes waking up each day exciting and rewarding and where the true joy, peace, and abundance of this life comes from.

I love you and care about you so much. I will be praying for you today. If you already have made that commitment to Christ, I will be praying that you will continue to grow and mature in your faith, to be more like our Savior each day. That does not just happen by magic, it takes time, effort, and commitment. Let me remind you again, if you have accepted Christ as your Savior, the Bible says that it is no longer your life but it belongs to Jesus. So quit holding onto what isn’t yours and fully and completely surrender your life to Him today so that He can use you for His glory.

If you have never made the commitment to ask Christ into your heart and life by faith, let me tell you that the most important decision you will make in this life is not who you will marry, or where you will live, or what kind of job you will have. The most important decision you will make in this life is to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. God’s desire is that none be lost, that all come to repentance. He is speaking to you today. The Bible says that TODAY is the day of salvation.

I would invite you to go to: http://www.liveprayer.com/plan.cfm Pray and ask God to open your heart, read the words, pray the prayer, and accept God’s free gift to you today. Getting saved is not just an emotional moment, it is a life-changing experience!!!

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

Can Playing Video and Computer Games be Bad

Leave a comment

(Philippians 4:7, Proverbs 4:23)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, what is a Prophet? Who were the Prophets? What is the purpose of Prophets?

ANSWER: The “Prophet” is a spokesman for God. In the OT, prior to the completion of the Bible, God spoke through the prophet to foretell events as well as lead the people in ways of righteousness. Now that we have God’s Word in its complete form, the modern day prophet is not a “Christian fortune teller” as many portray themselves, but a FORTHTELLER. Nothing a prophet says can contradict God’s Word. Their purpose is to share God’s Truth as found in the Bible and lead the people in the ways of God. The prophet was never and still is not a popular person since they have made a solid commitment to God above all else, and have always been despised by the formal religious community for telling people the raw truth and not being involved in the politics of the church. The true prophet is not able to be bought off and his allegiance is to the Truth of God’s Word and building the Kingdom of God. By the way, this is another reason Mormonism is a cult from hell, since they claim to be “modern day prophets” with a “new revelation.” That is a DIRECT contradiction to the last verses of the Bible and exposes them as “false prophets,” which by definition is someone who leads people AWAY from God’s Word and faith in the Jesus of the Bible.

Can playing video and computer games be bad? The world of video games has surely changed since the days of “Pong” and “Pac Man.” Those innocent games are long gone, having been replaced by video and computer games that promote and glorify every kind of evil, debauchery, and sin the human mind could possibly dream up. While these incredibly violent and often sexual “games” are primarily marketed to young adults, even though many have “adult only” warning labels, they are being played by children as young as 10.

A very popular genre of games are played “real time” on the computer via high speed internet connections with people all over the world. Most of these “virtual reality” video and computer games involve the player taking on a role or character and the line between reality and fantasy becomes blurred.

Over the 15+ years of Liveprayer, I have seen an alarming increase in the number of prayer requests from people regarding this issue. It is clearly a cultural problem that has not received much attention, but I can tell you from the real lives I deal with every single day, it is a growing and increasing issue in many lives from young children all the way to adults in their 40s and 50s. It is still primarily a problem faced by men. However, 20 years ago pornography was largely a male problem and I can assure you that today there are as many women in bondage to pornography as men.

Now many people are probably wondering with all of the problems in the world, all of the problems people face each day, what the big deal about people playing video and computer games is. The big deal breaks down in four main areas. First, it desensitizes people, especially children, to violence and death. Second, it blurs the line between reality and fantasy and many people lose sight of how to live in the real world.

Third, many of these games deal with demonic things like witchcraft, sorcery, wizardry, and the occult. It opens the door to satan in the lives of those who play these games. Lastly, these games can become addictive to the point people stop going to work, stop taking care of their families, literally become so consumed that nothing else in their life matters.

One of the worst things about the latest generation of these computer and video games is the incredible amount of violence and death. Killing is the ultimate goal to “win” many of these games. This is not healthy for a mature adult let alone a teenager or child. It leads people to not respect life and minimizes what a special gift from God life is and how important each person is who has been created in God’s image.

All of these games require those who play them to either become a character, or take on some role in playing the game. The incredible technology of our day has made these games seem so realistic, many people who play them often begin to lose sight of what is reality and what is fantasy.

A real spiritual issue is the demonic presence in so many of these video and computer games. They literally take those who play them into the demonic world through the character’s involvement in things like magic, witchcraft, and sorcery. Never underestimate for a moment the pure and unadulterated evil of many of these games.

The fact is many people become addicted to these games and they are no different than an alcoholic or a drug addict. They share the same problems. They end up losing their job. They quit being responsible for their families. They become anti-social. There is a real and legitimate bondage to these video and computer games like any other bondage you can name.

The Holy Spirit has led me to bring out this issue today because I know many who are reading these words are battling with this in their life right now, or have a family member or friend who is. Let me make this clear to you, AN ADDICTION TO VIDEO AND COMPUTER GAMES IS JUST AS REAL AS BEING ADDICTED TO DRUGS OR ALCOHOL AND EQUALLY AS DESTRUCTIVE!!!

Just like I warn you to stay away from alcohol, to stay away from drugs, to stay away from abusing food, to not gamble, today I am warning you to be very careful when it comes to video and computer games. Don’t even play those games that are full of violence and death. There is a great computer adage, “garbage in, garbage out.” There is nothing positive about watching and participating in violence and death, even if it is a game.

You wouldn’t eat garbage out of a dumpster, why would you put garbage into your mind! Run from these games that are clearly demonic and promote the things of satan. Don’t open your life and allow the enemy to have access to your heart and mind, even through something that may seem as innocent and harmless as a video or computer game. Parents, you need to be aware of the games your child has access to!!!

I realize that there are some more wholesome games out there. Like anything in life, we have to have balance and keep our priorities in order. Just keep in mind that they can be very addicting and to check yourself from time to time that you are not spending too much of your time playing these games or that it is affecting in any way your real life.

If you are neglecting your family responsibilities, if it is keeping you from being with other people, if it is getting to the point it is all you think about, you need to step back and realize that you could be getting addicted to these games. Just like you can become addicted to something as necessary as food, just like you can become addicted to something as necessary as shopping, you can also become addicted to something as seemingly harmless and innocent as a video or computer game.

I love you and care about you so much. I will be praying for you today. Praying for those reading this today who are in bondage to video or computer games to open your heart to the Lord and hear His voice speaking to you today. He wants to set you free! I pray that you will ask the Lord for the strength to find freedom from this bondage, find people who love and care about you to stand with you in prayer and hold you accountable, and that as you walk in His strength each day, you will walk in His victory over this bondage to video and computer games.

I will also be praying for those in your life who may be addicted to these video and computer games. Praying that they will come to a place of surrender and acknowledge this problem in their life and allow the Lord to free them from their bondage to these games.

You are not going to hell for playing a video or computer game. But you need to be aware of the incredible damage playing these games can possibly do to your life. We know that satan’s mission is to kill, steal, and destroy. He will use all kinds of ways to do that, even using something that seems as harmless as a video or computer game. Guard your heart and mind at all times. While satan’s goal is to destroy your life anyway that he can, God’s desire is that you have life and have life more abundantly!

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

The Evil So Many Face Each Day from Customers, Co-workers and Bosses

Leave a comment

(Colossians 3:23)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, some people think God chose who he was going to be saved even before they were born. I tend to think He just knew who was going to follow him and who wasn’t. What is your opinion?

ANSWER: It is the age old debate about “election.” God in His omniscience knew before the foundations of the earth was formed who would accept Him and who would reject Him. Having said that, despite His knowledge, man has the free will to accept or reject Christ and God DOES NOT interfere with that free will choice, meaning each person is responsible for what they do with Jesus. Otherwise, there would be no need for preaching the Gospel, there would be no point in evangelizing, and all of the commandments regarding telling others (Romans 10) would be meaningless.

I know from the emails that I get, many people go to work each day in absolutely wicked places. I am amazed at the level of evil so many face each day from customers, co-workers, and bosses. Many who openly profess Christ as their Savior endure persecution at work for their faith.

For those of you who go to work each day in a hostile work environment, where people come against you, many simply because you are a Christian, I want you to know that it is NO ACCIDENT OR COINCIDENCE you work where you do. God has put you there for a reason . . . to be HIS light in the darkness.

As I have stated so many times, the child of God is expected to live UP to the standards of God, not down to the standards of this world. This world says to do as little as possible to get by. On your job, do what you have to do, nothing more. God says that you are to do your very best, work with all of your heart to please the Lord, not man.

Even though you may work for your boss, you are actually working for THE BOSS! God doesn’t expect you to do what you can’t do, only your very best at what you can do. Those who know the Lord should always be the best workers, since we understand we are working for the Lord, not man.

Never forget, we have the largest percentage of two full generations that has never been to church. YOU ARE THE ONLY BIBLE MANY OF THOSE YOU ARE IN CONTACT WITH EACH DAY AT YOUR JOB WILL EVER READ! Our greatest testimony to those God has put in our life is not what we say, but how we live our life each day! I guarantee you, people notice!

Also, I know many of our friends need a job or are underemployed. Please know that I am praying for you and for the Lord’s perfect timing to open up that place He wants you to labor, and that in the process He will bless you to earn the amount of money you need to take care of yourself, your family, and the financial obligations you face in your life.

Let me tell you what the big picture strategy of Liveprayer is. It is a very simple plan. Use the Internet and secular TV to let people know when they are hurting, looking for answers, there is a place they can come. You see, I understand that EVERYONE deals with the same issues in life like finances, health, death, relationships, careers, and addictions.

I simply want to be there, visible and accessible so that when they face these issues, they know there is a place to come to find strength and hope. That is why God has you working where you are. To be that bright light, so when those you come in contact with each day are hurting, looking for strength and hope, they know they can come to you.

That is when you can share with them the fact that Jesus is their only real hope. In the midst of their struggles, He is the ONLY answer. It is at those times when God can use you as an instrument to help those who are hurting find strength in Christ and peace that only God can give. THAT IS WHY YOU ARE WORKING WHERE YOU ARE!

I love you and care about you so much. I realize that many of you face incredible challenges each day on your job. I will be praying today that God will encourage you and help you to see that you are not at that job just for a paycheck, but He has placed you there to be a witness for Him to those you come in contact with each day.

Take time before you go to work to pray for God to help you to do your very best in your job that day, working as unto the Lord, not man as a testimony to those you work with. Also, pray that God will let your light shine bright so that those who may be hurting, will come to you with their problems and give you the opportunity to pray for them and share with them the hope and love of Jesus.

I pray that you will never look at your job as just a way to earn a paycheck again, but look at it for what it really is, A MINISTRY. All of God’s children are called to serve Him. Realize that you serve Him every day when you go to work, since it is no accident or coincidence where you work. GOD PUT YOU THERE!

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

Bill Keller
