Is Demon Possession Real

Leave a comment

(Mark 5:1-20)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, are demons real? Do they possess people and houses?

ANSWER: ABSOLUTELY!!! Satan’s minions are very real and DO possess people and places. With the better percentage of the last two generations having never gone to church, they have more hosts, people and places, to occupy than ever. Never forget, someone who is truly saved, born again, can NEVER be possessed only opressed, since a demon can never occupy the same space as the Holy Spirit. Too many people dismiss the reality of demons, and underestimate their presence in any “place” you can name…incljuding a church!!! (see today’s Daily Devotional)

Is demon possession real? ABSOLUTELY! Satan and his demons are a very real force in this world during this season of human history, and will be until the final days when they will be cast into the Lake of Fire for all eternity. One of satan’s greatest deceptions is to get people believing he isn’t real. Remember this fact. A person who is saved, has put their faith in Jesus Christ and is born again, can NOT be demon possessed. Demon OPPRESSED, yes, but never demon possessed.

In 2011 was the movie “The Rite,” starring Anthony Hopkins. I don’t normally recommend movies, but do encourage everyone to go see this one. The movie deals with demon possession and theologically is right on the money about this issue. It is an issue few want to discuss, but we must since as we go through each generation, less people go to church, less people put their faith in Jesus Christ, meaning there are more people than ever who are currently demon possessed!

The question I get all the time is how does a person become demon possessed. Demons are lazy and take the path of least resistance. They will find people and places where they are welcome. There is no such thing as a haunted house since there is no such thing as ghosts. However, there are homes which are infested with demons, and people incorrectly think they are haunted.

Again, demons go where they are welcomed. They go where people literally invite them in, without even realizing it. Let me just say this, if you are not saved and involved in sinful activity of any kind, you are rolling out the red carpet for demons to enter you.

Sadly, people of all ages underestimate satan’s goals even though Jesus clearly told us what they are in John 10:10. He is out to steal, kill, and destroy. Satan’s desire is to steal your hope, steal your joy, steal your peace, steal the abundance that this life can be. Satan wants to kill you. He wants you dead in your sin so that you will be forever separated from God, your Creator, and destined to spend eternity in the Lake of Fire that will be his eternal home. Satan wants to destroy you. If you are already a Christian, he wants to destroy your testimony, to destroy your ability to serve God, to destroy the plan and purpose God has for your life. My friend, satan is NOT playing games, he is deadly serious!!!

That is why I am so passionate each day in what I share with you in regard to sin. Each day, I receive over 40,000 prayer requests from all over the world. Literally 7 days a week I am dealing with the very real lives, of very real people, that due to sin have had their lives turned upside down. I get to see daily the destruction sin does in people’s lives. Satan is an equal opportunity destroyer. He doesn’t care if you are young or old, if you are male or female, if you are white or black. Satan doesn’t care if you are rich or poor, where you live, how intelligent you may or may not be. SIN IS A UNIVERSAL ISSUE THAT ALL MEN AND WOMEN DEAL WITH EVERY DAY!

I realize that I can’t force you to follow God, or to obey Him. I understand that you have to make your own choices. What God has called me to do is simply share the TRUTH of His Word with you each day. It really boils down to this. When you obey God, you will be blessed. When you rebel against God, you will face the consequences. Obeying God brings blessings, disobeying God brings consequences. This is true whether you are 10 or 100, and every age in between.

I love you and care about you so much. Satan and demons are very real. Satan is NOT some cartoon character created by Walt Disney, but a very REAL force in the world for this short season. He is not to be feared, but understood. We must never forget that for this brief season, he is very much on the loose, with the clearly defined goal to steal, kill, and destroy the lives of real people. However, there is no reason to fear satan because 2000 years ago Jesus Christ rose out of His tomb and sealed the enemy’s eternal fate. He is a defeated foe! The Bible proclaims that, “greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world.”

I will be praying for you today. I pray that you will not take sin lightly, or the potential consequences of sin in your life. Satan is a LIAR. John 8:44 tells us that he is the “father of lies!” God gives us a great promise in 1 John 1:9 that if we will confess our sins, He will forgive us, and cleanse us of all unrighteousness. It does NOT say that we will escape the consequences of our sins, but that God will forgive us and give us the grace and strength to deal with whatever they may be.

You don’t negotiate with satan or demons, you don’t debate them, you COMMAND THEM! You speak to them with the authority you have as a blood bought son or daughter of Jesus Christ. You speak to them in the name of Jesus. Don’t forget, there are too many places and people where demons are welcome. They will flee when commanded to leave in the name of Jesus.

SATAN IS NOT YOUR FRIEND, HE IS NOT YOUR BUDDY, HE IS YOUR ENEMY. Treat him like your enemy! He is out to destroy YOU! Any chance you get, KICK HIM AS HARD AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN!!

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

Bill Keller

Children of Same Sex Couples

Leave a comment

(Genesis 1:28, 2:24; Deuteronomy 6:7; Proverbs 22:6; Malachi 2:16; 2 Corinthians 12:14; Ephesians 6:4; Psalms 127:3)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, it seems to me that one of the things the parable of the Wheat and Tares is telling us is that some people are just “born bad.”

ANSWER: We are ALL born with “original sin” or the sin of Adam. The Bible clearly tells us that there is NONE who is good, no not one! During our life, we each have to make the freewill choice to obey God or rebel against God, We are all sinners and in need of a Savior, but the “Wheat and Tares” speaks clearly that some will make that freewill choice to accept Jesus by faith, while others will exercise their freewill choice to reject Him.

“Children of same-sex couples fare better when it comes to happiness, physical health and social well-being than children in the general population, according to researchers at the University of Melbourne in Australia.”

I really dislike having to say “I told you so,” but, “I TOLD YOU SO!!! Sharing what is coming, often a decade in advance, I have gotten used to being scoffed at, ridiculed, called all kind of nasty names, but lo and behold as time unfolds the things I had warned people about years earlier come to pass. One of those issues I warned people about well over a decade ago was how a byproduct of perverting God’s Holy Institution of Marriage would be same-sex couple adopting children. It is physically IMPOSSIBLE for same-sex couples to procreate, only proving their choice of sex to not just be a perversion of how God intended man to engage in sexual relations, but it is UNNATURAL!!!

I went on to share how in order to justify this gross perversion of God’s plan for the family, you would get inundated with studies and people from the psychological community who support this perversion, telling people that children growing up in such a perverse environment with two parents of the same sex would actually be much better than children growing up with a mother and father.

Well, let the floodgates of propaganda to justify this perversion of God’s plan for the family open up! It has started! This new propaganda is to make people believe children of same-sex couples are actually happier, in better health, and more socially adjusted than children with a mother and father as God intended. Over the last decade, we have been bombarded with studies/propaganda justifying the CHOICE of men who engage in perverted sex acts with other men, and the CHOICE of women who engage in perverted sex acts with other women, stating that those who CHOOSE to engage in these perverted same-sex relationships are happier and more well adjusted than heterosexual men and women!

Any study or survey that make these claims about same-sex couple and children of same-sex couples are 100% LIES FROM THE PITS OF HELL! You can NOT operate in rebellion to God’s plan for marriage and the family and expect that rebellious choice to be better than God’s perfect plan. What do I tell you often? No matter what the issue is, when we do it our way it never works and when we do it God’s ways it always works! I have lambasted the homosexual advocates for 15 yrs now as they glamorize this perversion but never talk about the destroyed lives of those who make this sinful choice.

Sadly, we have dealt with tens of thousands of men and women in bondage to homosexuality over the last decade and a half, and like others addicted to alcohol, drugs, gambling, food, shopping, or whatever their bondage may be, it ends up destroying their lives in a multitude of ways. That is the sick part of same-sex couples adopting children. Due to no fault of their own, these children adopted into this perverted relationship can’t escape paying some price from being involved in such a family structure. Some will fare better than others, but to ever suggest those children are “happier, in better physical health, and more socially adjusted” is simply propaganda on behalf of those who advocate for and support this perversion of God’s plan for the family!

Without question, the number one problem in our society today is the breakdown of marriage and the family. God’s Holy Institution of Marriage between a man and a woman for life is His perfect plan for a man and woman to become one and share this journey through life. A husband and wife having children and raising them in the admonition of the Lord is God’s plan for the family. This plan was instituted in the Garden of Eden and has NEVER CHANGED throughout the generations. Regardless of how man has tried to redefine marriage, redefine what a family is, GOD’S DEFINITION HAS NEVER OR EVER WILL CHANGE!

The vast percentage of prayer requests we get each day are from people whose problems can be directly tied to issues in their marriage or family. For those who are single today, please hear my heart. I can never emphasize enough what a critical decision it is to get married and to whom you marry. This is a life-changing event and will not only involve you but your future children as well. Please, don’t ever underestimate the importance of marriage and how it will affect the rest of your life and the lives of your future children.

“That is why you cannot ignore God’s warning in 2 Corinthians 6:14, “Do not be unequally yoked with a non-believer.” Just saying they are saved is not enough. Do you actually see the fruit of their relationship with Christ in their daily life? Lastly, even if the person you are praying about marrying is a Christian and living their life for the Lord, you still need to take the time to build a spiritual foundation together and openly and honestly talk through all of the various issues of life. Through this process God will confirm to you both that this is part of His plan for your lives.

Also, this is a big reason why God designed sex FOR MARRIAGE ONLY! A natural by-product of sexual relations is a child. God never intended children to be raised by a mother alone. That is why sex outside of marriage is a sin and not part of His plan since it may result in having a child. It is God’s plan for children to be raised by a mother and father who are committed to each other for life through marriage. There can never be a better environment for raising a child than by a mother and father who are surrendered to the Lord and to each other.

As devastating and life changing as divorce is on the parties involved, as devastating and life changing as having a child outside of marriage is on the woman, it is impossible to ever comprehend the damage done to the children involved in a divorce or those born outside of marriage. In the past 40 years as more and more marriages have ended in divorce, as more women are having children outside of marriage, the negative effect on society is impossible to ignore. I would be willing, based on the 40,000+ prayer requests we receive every day here at Liveprayer, to boldly say without hesitation that the current breakdown of our society can be directly linked to the breakdown of marriage and the family.

An incredible number of children are growing up today in single parent homes or homes where their natural parent is on their second, third, even fourth spouse. Many children are growing up in blended homes where they have brothers and sisters by numerous mothers and fathers. It is common for many children to grow up today in several different homes, during the week in one home and the weekends in another.

Many children become pawns in hostile divorce cases where they are forced to choose one parent over another, in some cases being manipulated to lie about one parent, often being moved overnight from one home to another as different rulings come down from the courts. Physical, emotional, and sexual abuse are experienced by a growing number of children due to the fact they are living with adults who are not their natural mothers or fathers and the God-given natural love a mother and father have for their child simply doesn’t exist.

You can only imagine the damage done to children who grow up in these types of environments. Sadly, we deal daily with children as young as 12, all the way through adults who have never been able to get beyond their tragic childhoods. The results are an alarming number of children who need professional help and are on some sort of daily medication for emotional and behavioral problems. You have children and adults who have never known real love in their life falling, instead, for the love this world promotes through sex.

You have so many children and young adults who have never matured socially and end up with self-esteem problems, never fitting in with others their own age. You have so many children and young adults who have so much pain in their life they look to the world’s solution of escaping through drugs, alcohol, and food. The suicide rate of children and young adults is at an all time high. I could go on and on but I wish you could sit here in my office every day and read the stories of these children and young adults who live in great pain each day and have never known how wonderful this life can really be.

THE LARGER PROBLEM is that these children and young adults who have had their lives damaged are growing up and they are having children of their own. Since they have no idea what God’s plan for marriage and family is, they will now be bringing another generation of children into this world living in ungodly environments who are damaged like they are, and this cycle will simply continue with more and more people living their lives totally void of God and without any understanding of Christ, His love, or God’s Word. These people are also the prime targets for the cults and false religions of the world who aggressively market themselves as the answer to these people who are desperately looking for hope in their life, when the only true hope there is, is in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

I love you and care about you so much. The purpose of this message today is three fold. First, as a warning to those who are not married how serious and life changing that decision will be, and how it will not only affect the rest of your life, but the life of those children you will bring into this world. The second is to hopefully open the eyes of those adults who may be thinking about getting a divorce, and ask that you pray about humbling yourself before the Lord and asking Him to bring healing and restoration to your marriage, not just for your sake but for the sake of your children. Lastly, as a word of encouragement to you moms and dads who have gone through the pain of being divorced, to you moms who have had children outside of marriage and to the children and young adults who are currently growing up in homes without their natural mother and/or father.

For those who have been through the pain of being divorced, let me assure you that the Lord loves you and wants to help you heal. For those women who have had a child or children outside of marriage, I pray that you will find the Lord’s forgiveness in His promise to you in 1 John 1:9. God still has much for you to do with the rest of your life as well as many blessings for you to enjoy. If you are now married, God has given you a second chance to do it His way. Realize that you have made a lifetime commitment to your spouse and that if you will honor your vows to each other and to God, He will richly bless your both for many years to come. For those who are still single, I will pray today that in His perfect timing, He will bring into your life a Godly man or woman to share the rest of your journey with in His Holy Institution of Marriage.

If you have children, please don’t underestimate what they have lived through. They need your love and attention and nurturing now more than ever. The number one ministry you will ever have in your life is to your children. Raise them in the admonition of the Lord, pray with them every night before they go to bed, make sure they are in church. Laying a foundation of faith in their life will not only sustain them for the rest of their days on this earth but will help them to find the hope and strength to overcome whatever they have had to experience already in their young lives. God is a God of healing and He can bring healing to your children.

Also, know that God will make you adequate. If for this season you are not in God’s plan for the family, know that He will help you and meet your every need. I realize that it is not easy, but the Lord will give you wisdom, favor, encouragement, as you raise your child or children. Find your hope in the Lord each day and look to Him for direction and provision, He will not let you down. Know that I am praying for you and will stand with you as you raise your children for the glory of God!

Let me close with a word of hope and encouragement for you children and young adults that may be growing up with only one parent or in some sort of blended home. First of all, God loves you very much. YOU ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CHOICES YOUR PARENTS HAVE MADE. IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT.

Life can be very difficult at times, and sadly, you have found that out at a very young age but never doubt that Christ loves you so much and has a plan and purpose for your life. If you will take time each day to pray to Jesus, read the Bible, get to church each Sunday, and follow Christ, He will give you the strength to get through whatever you are facing in your life. I pray today that you will turn to Him and find His peace and joy in your life. Jesus is your hope and your answer

HE LOVES YOU! YOU ARE SPECIAL!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

A Prophet is a Spiritual Office like a Pastor, Teacher or Evangelist

(2 Timothy 3:1)

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

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

*This is a Devotional I wrote Feb 28th, 2002….over 12 years ago! The words I wrote on that day were true than, and still true today. Sadly, the things I have been writing about and warning you about over the nearly 15 years of Liveprayer have or are coming to pass. I can only pray people will wake up and realize that our time is very short, and God’s wrath and judgment on this wicked nation is imminent. May he who has ears to hear and eyes to see stand with me!

(from 2/28/02)

A prophet is a spiritual office like a pastor, teacher, or evangelist. A prophet is a person who declares the oracles of God to the people of his or her day. An interesting side note for those in the ministry who have this idea they are here to be served. The Bible says the meal of the prophet was cow dung, not cow meat! There is also the gift of prophecy. It is a spiritual gift. Like all spiritual gifts, every child of God has some but not all.

There is great controversy within the body of Christ regarding gifts, but let me say that the Bible clearly says God gives people spiritual gifts to accomplish His plan and purpose. He gives someone the gift of prophecy to tell people about future events. It is NOT Christian fortune telling or being a Christian version of the psychic friends. Also, remember that a prophetic word will ALWAYS be supported by scripture!

Of course, since it is something that will happen in the future, the prophetic passages of the Bible can be interpreted many different ways and are highly subjective. I think we should go to the Biblical standard for a prophetic word. Those who gave prophetic words were never given the chance to be wrong twice, since they were stoned to death after their first miss! I wonder how many “prophets” would be out in our churches today under those conditions? Quite a few would not have made it past the Y2K crisis they foretold. My purpose today is not to debate end-times events, but share a word God has for you.

WE ARE LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS. THEY ARE HERE NOW!!! You don’t have to be a Bible scholar to read the words of Paul to Timothy in 2 Timothy Chapter 3, the words of Peter in 2 Peter Chapter 3, or the words of our Lord in Matthew Chapter 24 as they describe the signs of the “last days.” No man knows the hour the Lord will return but the Bible is clear He may come back at any moment in the “twinkling of an eye.” We are in the last days, Christ is coming back at any second, and because of our gross sin, wickedness, and rebellion to God and His Word we are DUE His judgment.

That is why each day I do my best to encourage you, challenge you, and push you in your daily walk with Christ. God needs every one of His children, now more than ever, working hard for the Kingdom. As a child of God, we have the power and ability to turn from sin. The reason I focus so much on sin is because it is the weapon the enemy uses to keep you from being a productive member of God’s army. He gets you so consumed in your own problems, in your own situations, that you are not able to be part of fighting the larger war for the eternal souls of people.

God gives us glimpses of the future, of the last days, so that we can be motivated to get busy and work while we still have an opportunity to make a difference. There is no time to sleep or rest, because time is quickly running out!

I love you, and care about you so very much. Now more than ever God needs you, needs each one of His children on the battlefield each day. Once we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we are immediately drafted into God’s army. It is not an option, but a responsibility. It is not something we should even hesitate wanting to do. After all, we know that those who die in their sin are destined to eternal separation. If we can help even one person avoid eternal damnation, how can we say no?

God has strategically placed you exactly where you are supposed to be. It is no accident you live where you live, work where you work, go to school where you go to school. That is your battle station. As we watch the last days unfold, as we anticipate the return of Christ at any moment, let us get serious about serving Him. He will guide you, equip you, and make you adequate for the job He has given you to do. All He needs is your obedience and surrender to His plan for your life. I will pray for you today to open your heart and ask God how you can be the best soldier possible.

“Thus sayeth the Lord God of Hosts, I have called you forth in these last days to be my people, to show the lost of this world that I am the hope they seek. Go share that message.”

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

Where There is No Vision the People Perish

Leave a comment

(Proverbs 29:18)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, My question is this, the church is against cremation and stresses that you should have a regular burial, casket etc. Is there any scripture in the Bible that states one should not be cremated?

ANSWER: ABSOLUTELY NOT! How people dispose of the dead is more a cultural issue. There is NOTHING in the Bible that says you must be buried. What the Bible DOES say, is that from dust you came, and to dust you will return. Burial is the slow process of that happening, cremation makes it happen quickly. Here is a link to a Devotional on that very issue:
http://www.liveprayer.com/ddarchive3.cfm?id=1025

“Where there is no vision, the people perish!” Today, I am speaking to you from a place I often have in the past 15 yrs, and that is as a modern day prophet of God. In the OT, the prophets of God FORETOLD what would happen in order to warn God’s people. We now have the Bible, so modern day prophets are not “foretellers,” but “forthtellers,” sharing what God’s Word is saying. In that office, I am telling you that the ONLY hope for this nation is to turn back to God and HIS TRUTH. If we do not, the wrath and judgment of God will rain down and this nation will no longer exist!

I am well aware that 95% of those reading these words today think I have lost it. I would say to you, go back through human history and look at the great nations, the great military powers of the last 6,000 years of human history. Rome, Greece, and other nations thought they were also going to last forever. In the end, God destroyed them and they ceased to exist! If we are so arrogant to think that what God did in the past He won’t do today, than we deserve His wrath and punishment!

As God sent Johan to Nineveh, God has raised me up in this moment in human history in this very nation to share the same message Jonah did. The similarities are eerie. Jonah had no desire to do what God had called him to do and ran. Likewise, I also had no desire to do what God wanted from my life and ran. God sent a “big fish” to get Jonah’s attention. God sent a “big fish” in the form of the US Government to get my attention.

In the end, Jonah and Bill Keller both decided doing what God called us to do was the best option. Just as Jonah faithfully warned Nineveh of the coming judgment of God, I have spent the past 20 yrs of my life warning this nation of God’s coming judgment! Jonah warned Nineveh of God’s impending judgment if they didn’t repent, turn back to God and His Truth. I have been warning this nation that God’s wrath and judgment is imminent if we don’t repent and turn back to God and Biblicla Truth!!!

Every day at Liveprayer we hear from tens of thousands of people. It is funny that the lost KNOW there is something wrong in their life and in this nation. They can’t articulate what it is, but they know! I have never doubted that revival will come to this nation through those OUTSIDE the four walls of the church! The church of today is so compromised, so far away from what the church is supposed to be, so divided, it hasn’t got the ability to usher in a true revival. That revival is possible, and it will happen outside the four wall so the church!

People are hurting. People are lost. People are looking for real hope and real answers! The fact is, by reaching the masses, people will respond!!!! Sadly, we have a very short window of opportunity. Our time to act is NOW!!! With all of the major ministries out there, I have had my assistant to follow them ALL for the past year in regard to what they are calling their followers to do. Sadly, they are asking their followers to help them buy a new Gulfsteam private jet, build new buildings, give them money so the person giving the money can be rich, and on and on and one! It is a shame that with the very life of this nation on the line, not ONE is asking people to help them turn the nation back to God and His Truth and usher in a real revival!

I love you and care about you so much. Since May of 2013 the Liveprayer TV has been back on stations around the nation (reaching the 10 million people in the Chicagoland market since February of this year) and accessible to people worldwide via a hi-def feed online at Liveprayer.com! It is the last piece of the puzzle I have been sharing with you for years we needed to see this nation fall on its’ knees and turn back to God and His truth.

Please be in prayer since the lost and hurting masses are open to a message of true hope and change. People are looking for real answers for their life. We know the ONLY truth hope and change, the real answers, are found in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ!

The Bible says the people perish for lack of vision. That is so true! We have the vision of what needs to happen to save this nation. We have the vehicles to get it done. May eternity show we were faithful to fulfill what God has called us to do in order to stay His hand of judgment for a season as we see a great harvest of souls in these final days!!!!

***As we are 12 days into our 179th month of Liveprayer, we still require the final $10,000 from our June shortfall so we can begin to work on the $40,000 required for our basic July operations. That is $50,000 we require over the final 19 days to end the month with all of our basic operations current. I am praying for 1 or 2 friends who are able,to step up and send a special one-time gift to help me clear up the balance of our June shortfall by the end of the weekend!

CHICAGO TV!!! God sent a special friend two weeks ago to enable us to send a good faith payment on our overdue balance to the Chicago TV station so the program would remain on the air. Below is our payment schedule for the balance of July that is required to keep Liveprayer on the air in the Chicagoland market. The station has been very fair in working with us, wanting the program to succeed, and has made many financial concessions to help us. Please pray over this schedule and seek the Lord about allowing Him to use YOU to help me insure we continue to be able to reach the 10 million people in the greater Chicagoland market “live” every Mon-Fri from 11pm-1am CDT.

As we are into our 6th month airing in the Chicago market, we are seeing more and more people sacrificing to help us with every passing month. If we can simply get through this first year, we will have all of the support we need each month from our viewers in that market. Only God could have opened such an incredible door, and I know in my heart satan is fighting us every step of the way since it is the critical piece to our overall TV efforts that have been married with Liveprayer.com to help us lead this nation back to God and His Truth!!!

—>Due Monday July 14th/$6,000 —>Due Friday July 25th/$22,00 —>Due Friday august 1st/$22,00

*THE PRESSURE TODAY IS INSURING WE CAN MAKE THAT $6,000 PAYMENT THIS COMING MONDAY. PLEASE PRAY, AND IF YOU HAVE THE FUNDS AVAILABLE, ALLOW GOD TO USE YOU TO SEND A SPECIAL ONE-TIME GIFT OF $6,000 TO INSURE WE CAN SEND THIS CRITICAL PAYMENT ON MONDAY !!!

I know many are going through difficult times financially, and we pray daily for the Lord to meet your needs and our financial requirements for Liveprayer.com and Liveprayer TV. I also know that many are working hard, seeing nice returns on their investments, and have businesses or jobs where you are being blessed. If God is blessing you financially or has in the past that has allowed you to accumulate some financial resources, please pray about helping me. It was those who God had blessed over these many years who made it possible for us to impact tens of millions of lives around the world and see over 800,000 souls we know of come to faith in Jesus Christ over these past 15 years of Liveprayer.com and 10 years of Liveprayer TV.

There were critical times in the past when dear friends have stepped up with special gifts of $20,000, $50,000, even $100,000 in once case, to help us at a time of great need. Now it is YOU who God is speaking to about helping me insure we are here daily online and on TV to bring God’s Truth into the marketplace to confront the lies of satan, praying for people’s needs, while sharing with the lost and hurting masses His hope and salvation that is only found through Jesus Christ. The Bible teaches to “give according to your ability to give,” so whatever you are able to sacrifce, even if it is $10, is a blessing since God isn’t impressed with the size of your offering, but the obedient heart that makes that offering!

God’s Final Act of Judgment on this Nation will Come in 2016

Leave a comment

(Galatians 1:1-6)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, I have recently read a daily devotional that really has disturbed me as it said it is an insult to God for Christians to ask for forgiveness. Because He died for all our sins (previous and future). So if this is true, how can Christians truly repent?

ANSWER: First, you NEVER read that here. Sadly, in the internet age, there is a plethora of people writing online with ZERO theological training. That is why it is critical to know WHO you are reading. What you read is 100% INCORRECT. In 1 John 1,written to Believers, that we ALL sin. Just because we have confessed our sins, asked forgiveness, repented (turned from our sin), we still need to confess our sins and ask for forgiveness daily…since we ALL sin and fall short of the glory of God. The wonderful thing is we have the assurance from God’s Word we will be forgiven.

God’s final act of judgment on this nation will come in 2016! Let me preface this message with two critical points. First, this message is only applicable IF this nation even still exists in 2016. I don’t say that lightly since we are already on borrowed time and the ultimate wrath and judgment of God could be poured out at any moment. So this message is only relevant if this nation as we know it is still in existence.

The second point is that this message is only applicable IF we have not repented, asked God’s forgiveness, turned back to God and His Truth as the people of Nineveh did, and we are experiencing a true revival in this nation. That is the ONLY answer for this nation, and in the midst of our sin and rebellion and seeing God’s judgment being poured out on our nation, it is possible that the people will wake up and turn from their wicked ways.

However, should neither of those two events occur, I want to share with you what will undoubtedly be the final act of God’s judgment on this nation in 2016 that will once and for all destroy what is left of our land. That will be when God allows on the first Tuesday of November in 2016, November 1st is the date, Willard “Mitt” Romney to become the 45th President of the United States!!!

Never forget, it was God who allowed a virtually unknown politician named Barack Hussein Obama to take the Democratic Party nomination away from Hillary Clinton in 2008 and become President for 2 terms. By the end of those 8 yrs, as a clear sign of God’s judgment on this nation like when He allowed wicked kings to rule Israel, the core and foundation of this nation will be severely damaged.

Every aspect of daily life will have been negatively impacted creating a very different country than when President Obama took office in January of 2009 with the stated goal of radically transforming this nation. The severe damage to what was the world’s greatest health care system, a weakened military and strained relations with the nations of the world, a financial system that could collapse at any moment, social unrest due to the stoking of every kind of division, millions of illegal aliens due to opening the borders for anyone to come in, government agencies operating in complete lawlessness, legislative gridlock and a rogue judiciary… EVERY ASPECT OF LIFE WILL BE DAMAGED, COMPROMISED, OR COMPLETELY DESTROYED!!!

The only thing left will be the spiritual state of this nation that has been in freefall for decades, and that will be completely destroyed as we elect a 5th generation high priest of a satan worshipping cult that is leading millions of souls worldwide to hell with a false gospel!!!

Now I understand many are saying that Mitt Romney isn’t even running. The two parties have insured NOBODY but one of their candidates will ever be President since it takes $1 BILLION DOLLARS plus a vast human infrastructure in all 50 states. VERY few people could ever put that together, but Romney is one of those few people. Don’t forget, Ronald Reagan ran in 1972 and 1976 before being elected President in 1980.

Others are saying Romeny would be 1000x better than President Obama. On policy, I don’t doubt that to be true. However, God allowing Romney to become President won’t be about policy, but the decimation of what is left of the spiritual core of this nation as not just a cult member is elected President, but a 5th generation high priest of a satanic cult!

I love and care about you so much. For those who don’t understand what would be so wrong with Mitt Romney being President, I will give you several links below to peruse. One is our effort in 2012 to encourage people to say “NO” to both of satan’s candidates, Obama and Romney. Another is a link to exposing Romney and his cult during his run in 2008. The last is to our Devotiaonl Archives. Simply type in the search bar Romney, and than Mormon, and every Daily Devotional I have written warning people about this tool of satan and his cult to educate people will come up.

The answer is to repent as a nation and turn back to God and His Truth BEFORE 2016 is even an issue. Having that “Nineveh moment” is our only real hope and answer. May we return to the Almighty and the Truth of His Word before we see this once great and Godly nation destroyed once and for all!

The Answer to the Illegal Aliens Streaming Across Our Southern Border

Leave a comment

(Romans 13:1-7)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, did you hear Bill Maher actually defending Christianity as not in the same vein as Islam regarding violence?

ANSWER: LOL!!! Yes!!! If you go to the Daily Devotional archives searchable by keyword or date ( http://www.liveprayer.com/darchive.cfm ), I have done many Devotionals over the years about Maher. I have to give him credit, since anyone with ANY credibility, can’t deny Islam during its 1400 year history has been about violence, terror, domination, and death. With the advent of the Internet, people can now see that not a DAY goes by in some part of the world where Islam is involved in terrorism, violence, and death!!!

The answer to the ILLEGAL ALIEN children and others who have been streaming across our southern border! Like most, I have been following the disaster at our southern border that has reached epidemic proportions over the past few weeks. Below, is a Devotional I recently did that clearly lays out the case this was no “accident,” but a carefully orchestrated and planned event by the Obama administration for purely political purposes. The fact is a nation that ceases to enforce its’ borders is not really a nation and is inviting a plethora of problems all ultimately costing billions and billions of taxpayer dollars, not the least of which is the danger to our national security!

However, before I share that with you, let me give you the only legitimate answer to this flood of children coming in mostly from Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala. We obviously have planes to fly them around the nation to “park them” in various care facilities, so start loading up military transports with these children, fly them an hour or so SOUTH to the capital of the country they came from, and leave them on the tarmac. It would take less than a month to bring back to their country of origin 100% of these children who are in this country ILLEGALLY!!!

LET THE GOVERNMENTS OF THESE NATIONS THEY ARE COMING FROM TAKE CARE OF THEIR OWN CHILDREN!!!

I am well aware of how “cruel” this answer may seem to some. I am also well aware the excuse they have been using to come here is that they are “escaping violence.” That is as legit an excuse as the video that supposedly caused the attack in Benghazi! There has ALWAYS been violence in those countries and probably always will be. They have come to this nation ILLEGALLY with the understanding that if they just made it here they would be able to stay. By the way, if they were escaping gang violence, this country would be the last place they should come. Can you say CHICAGO???

What has incensed me as much as anything over this national debate of the past couple of weeks are people like Nancy Pelosi, the Godless crew in most of the media like the hosts and guests on MSNBC, along with those in the pro-immigration movement who are virtually all very liberal in their political ideology. They claim to love these ILLEGAL children and anyone with a heart must love them too.

THESE ARE VIRTUALLY ALL THE SAME PEOPLE WHO ALSO ADVOCATE FOR AND SUPPORT THE SLAUGHTER OF INNOCENT BABIES!!! So I guess as long as they are ILLEGAL ALIEN children, it is OK to love them If they are innocent babies in the womb of a mother who is actually a legal US citizen, slaughtering 4,000 of them every 24 hours is perfectly acceptable!

*The only group involved in advocating for the children that are NOT hypocrites on this issue are those groups part of the Roman Catholic Church who have been fearless in their support of life!

It is clear that with the influx of over 70,000 unaccompanied children flooding into the United States illegally, with thousands more illegally crossing our borders each week, this is an orchestrated ploy to push through new legislation to grant blanket amnesty to the 12 million plus people in this nation illegally!

No matter what your feelings and views on this issue may be, this is first and foremost a spiritual issue that further demonstrates the judgment of God being poured out on this nation. The instability, financial costs, and great threat to the national security of this nation are all the result of this failure by our government to properly guard our borders. God has allowed this to happen as a result of the unrepentant rebellion by this nation to Him and His Word!

Outside of the various scandals plaguing the government, no dobut the biggest issue this summer is the potential legislation for comprehensive immigration. I have been sad to see “Christian” groups trying to make theological arguments in support of what really is nothing but blanket amnesty for those who CHOSE to break the law, with virtually NOTHING being done about using our vast modern resources to once and for all secure the borders to Mexico AND Canada!

What does God say about the immigration issue? The last I checked, there were laws in this nation governing how people who are not citizens of the United States can come here legally. It really confuses me why immigration is such a hotly debated issue. It is very simple. If you are in this country illegally, you should be deported back to your country of origin. I don’t care if that means deporting 100 people, 1,000 people, or the apx. 12 million people who are in this country illegally, send them back to the country they came from!

Many argue that it is not reasonable to deport the apx. 12 million people in this country illegally. It is not only reasonable, but if we don’t then we should change the immigration laws to state anyone can come to this country without any restrictions. I assure you that if you were in any other country illegally, you would be deported. Try going to say, Mexico, or Canada, without proper documentation and see what happens to you!!!

I am well aware that people argue we need the 12 million illegal aliens to do jobs that others won’t. It is also argued “big business” is all for illegal aliens since they can pay them far below fair market value. Again, this is not difficult. If a business is hiring illegal aliens, prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. There are laws on the books governing this type of practice by business, enforce them!

Those in the “religious left” who support the legalized slaughter of innocent babies, same-sex marriage, the enemies of Israel, and opposes most everything else God loves and stands for in the Bible, also support allowing illegal immigrants to stay despite the fact they broke the law to get here. They claim it is the compassionate thing to do and Jesus would be all for illegal aliens. Really? I don’t know what Bible they read but the Lord said to obey those in authority over us. JESUS SAID TO OBEY THE LAW, NOT BREAK THE LAW!!!

People are free to believe whatever they want in regard to this issue, but the Bible is very clear. Nowhere in the Bible does it support breaking the law. This nation, like all nations, has very clear laws regarding how foreigners can come to this nation legally. Those who break the law should be deported immediately just like you would be deported if you were in another country illegally.

I have not even dealt with the national security issue at stake. Only God knows the number of Muslims who have entered this country illegally and have “blended in,” simply waiting for the right time to carry out some terrorist act on our soil. We already know far too well the number of illegal aliens involved in criminal activities like drugs, guns, human trafficking, and kidnapping to name just a few.

THE ONE JOB THE GOVERNMENT MUST PERFORM IS SECURING THE SAFETY OF ITS’ CITIZENS. OUR GOVERNMENT HAS FAILED MISERABLY DUE TO NOT ENFORCING THE EXISTING IMMIGRATION LAWS THAT EXIST!!!

I love you and care aobut you so much. I realize that this is a passionate issue for many. Everyone is free to their own opinion on immigration, but I choose to go to our final authority in all issues, the Bible! God is clear that breaking the law is never acceptable. Those who have come to this country illegally have broken the law and should be immediately deported.

If Congress wants to change those laws, let them do it. But until they do, the government has a responsibility to enforce the laws that currently exist and protect the citizens of this nation from those who would come here illegally, many of those people coming here to commit other criminal acts, and no doubt, some of those who have come to commit acts of terror on our soil!

This is not a complicated issue. ENFORCE THE LAWS THAT EXIST! THAT IS WHAT JESUS WOULD SAY TO DO AND THE BIBLE COMMANDS!!!

***JUNE FINANCIAL UPDATE: After ending June $20,000 short of covering all of our required June Internet operational expenses, we have seen $10,000 of that balance come in. That leaves just $10,000 required to close out June and begin to work on the $40,000 we require for our July’s operations.

Please be praying for God to supply these funds we require. If you haven’t helped His work here at Liveprayer in recent months, or if you have been blessed by this ministry but have never sent a gift, please pray and seek the Lord what He is calling YOU to do in these next few days to help God’s work here at Liveprayer.

(From Liveprayer family member) “Now each person that receives their D/D from Live Prayer each day can fast something, a meal, a cup of coffee, a soda anything that you think you need to do every day. I mean if you can afford an I-Pod, Cellular Telephone, or computer, there is some way each month every one of us can volunteer to send a minimum of $1.00 a day, to Pastor Keller so we all can keep on receiving our D/D from Live Prayer. The tens and hundreds of thousands or more please make and sincere and honest effort to do this from the very heart of your hearts. Pastor Keller didn’t have any knowledge of me writing this, I’ve done this of my own freewill. My wife and I are going to continue sending in at least $30.00 a month when I can and/or part of my church tithes each month to Live Prayer to help keep the true Word of God delivered via computer and/or live TV.”

How Brief Our Journey Here Really Is

Leave a comment

(2 Timothy 1:5)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, is it a sin to go under hypnosis?

ANSWER: There are MANY reasons a Christian should run from hypnosis. It is the Holy Spirit who gives us the power to control ourselves. Hypnosis involves a transfer of control away from ourselves. We are to yield ourselves to the power of the Holy Spirit, NOT to another human. Hypnosis involves an altered state of consciousness when we are told in the Bible to be self controlled. Lastly, the techniques used in hypnosis are shared by mystical, philosophical, and religious systems, including the occult. In short, stay away from it!

As I have gotten older, each passing year makes me realize all the more how brief our journey here really is. It is only natural that we think about how we might be remembered after we are gone. I don’t want to sound cold, but the fact is, other than our family and possibly a few close friends, the memory of our life will fade quickly. Once we are gone from this life, there is very little left to remind people that we were even here. Some people may be memorialized by having a building or road named after them, others may have their memory honored by having an event named after them, but for most there will be little evidence of this life once it is over. My purpose today is not to discourage you, but to challenge you in regard to how you CAN live on long after your life here is over.

I have often talked about leaving behind the temporal things of this world when we die. How the only thing we will take from this life into eternity is our relationship with Christ. That our works will be tested and much of what we do in this life will be burned up as wood, hay, and stubble. The works that will stand the test of fire are those eternal works. So it is with our legacy, what we leave behind. We leave behind our name, which may or may not continue. The most visible thing we leave is our children, but they too will one day die.

What we do leave behind that will NOT pass away are those souls who will live for eternity because we were obedient to God. Understand that only the Holy Spirit can bring a person to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. However, God uses human instruments to affect a person’s life and bring them to that point. Your prayers, your kind words, your acts of charity, your unconditional love for others during your life will live on in that person for eternity!

The point I want you to understand today is that it is never too early in life, or too late in life to impact someone for eternity. It is after all our purpose in this life. Our purpose is to serve and glorify God. Our service to God comes in the service to others. Our service to others has ETERNAL consequences. It is our greatest legacy. It is the part of us that WILL live on for eternity. We live on long after we leave this life, in the lives of those we touch along our journey.

I love you and care about you so much. I pray today that you will take these words and meditate on them throughout the day. This is one of those Devotionals that you should print out and keep with you. We all go through those times in our life when we wonder what it is all about, if it really matters. The answer is a resounding YES! We need to be reminded from time to time that we are significant because God uses us in His plan and purpose to touch other lives at every step along our journey.

I am humbled each day as so many of you share what Liveprayer and these Devotionals have meant to your life. I am so appreciative to God that He has given me this wonderful opportunity to share the love and hope that we have in Jesus Christ with millions worldwide each day. I am clearly focused now more than ever, that the best way I can make my life count, is in serving those the Lord allows me to minister to along the way. It is the greatest way I can imagine to live my life.

My challenge to you today is to make sure you leave an eternal legacy, that you live on after your death in the lives of those the Lord allows to cross your path. Let me also challenge you that if at this moment, you are not 100% sure that if your heart stops beating this very second, you will immediately and forever be with Jesus, then please take a minute now, pray for God to open your heart, and read the words at this link: http://www.liveprayer.com/plan.cfm

Let me also share with you that a way you can touch the lives of people is in giving to the work God is doing every day here at Liveprayer. By sacrificing some of the resources God has entrusted to you for His work here, you are reaching people all over the world that you will never meet in this life, but will in Glory!

I am sure each person who is reading this today, has had a special person in your life that has impacted you for Christ. It may have been your mother or father, possibly a grandparent, someone in your family or a close friend, maybe it was a pastor or Sunday School teacher, or it could have been a classmate or co-worker.

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