The Real 1%

(Revelation 13:11-18)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, I was in a conversation with a brother after our weekly Bible study and he tried to make the case that pornography is OK as long as you watch it with your spouse. I don’t think what he said was correct, was it?

ANSWER: This is a classic example of what happens when you want to do something you know you shouldn’t, but satan gives you all the justification you need. He is the author of compromise! The short answer is NO! Below are 3 critical Devotionals of many I have written over the years on this issue, the first deals specifically with the question you raise. My suggestion is to copy it and send it to your friend.

The REAL 1%! While we are seeing anarchy around the world, and now in the streets of our own nation, I want to tell you today about the REAL 1%! The real 1% are not part of some political ideology, they are the true followers of Christ who have not sold out, have not bowed their knee to baal, and have taken their stand for Jesus in these last days!

As the soul of this nation is being lost more and more each day, we are seeing an uprising in the streets of people whose lives are not being guided by the Truth of the Bible, but the lies of this temporal world. As the Truth of the Bible, the only truth that exists, is taken out of our culture, men are turned into animals being guided by a reprobate mind. As the Spirit of the living God is taken out of our culture, it is replaced with lawlessness and the full evil of satan and his minions!

*THIS IS WHY I HAVE BEEN PREACHING FOR OVER 15 YEARS, SHARING WITH YOU VIRTUALLY EVERY DAY THAT OUR TIME IS SHORT. OUR EFFORTS TO TURN THIS NATION BACK TO GOD AND HIS TRUTH GO TO THE NEXT LEVEL THE FIRST OF NOVEMBER. THERE IS NO MORE TIME. THE SOUL OF OUR NATION, THUS THE SOULS OF OVER 300 MILLION PEOPLE, ARE AT STAKE! GOOD WILL DEFEAT EVIL, THE LIGHT OVERCOME THE DARKNESS!

When I was going through my formal theological training 24 years ago, I have to admit that I really never saw the probability of some of the things spoken of in the Book of Revelation happening in my lifetime. I thought it was impossible in the world as we knew it in the 90s to ever see a one-world government, or economy, or religion. There were just too many factors that made that type of scenario impossible. Fast forward to the year 2014, and we now live in a world that is ripe for the emergence of a one-world government, economy, and religion.

My warnings for the past 6 years about President Obama have been about the spiritual impact of his philosophies on politics and life and the fact he opposes God on every major spiritual issue of our day. The danger of his socialist political ideology is that it puts the United States in play to see the formation of a one-world government, economy, and religion. It now aligns us with most of the European countries and many other nations around the world, making it very possible for the pages of Revelation to be fulfilled, even in our lifetime!

We have already been living in a global economy for several decades now. China has recently been pushing for a new world currency to replace the dollar. With the declining value of the dollar, discussion of a new one-world currency takes on a new significance. There is no doubt that due to the economic crisis across the globe, the advent of a one-world currency and economic system could happen rather quickly. Economists will proffer the new one-world currency and economic system as the answer to the current economic crisis that is affecting all of the nations of the world.

A one-world government could easily fall into place as well. With the UN and other organizations involving numerous nations, with the European Union, the loose North American Union involving the United States, Canada, and Mexico, the transformation of the governments in the Middle East, the ability to pull together the various governments around the world becomes a much easier task. Once again, the political philosophies of President Obama makes the United States a ripe candidate for these type of alliances that could easily evolve into a one-world government.

Also ripe like never before, is the reality of a one-world religion. With much of the world void of any faith, with the better percentage of two full generations in the United States having never even been to church, there is a great spiritual void in the world that could be easily filled by a one-world religion. Look at the rise of satanic cult member Glenn Beck trying to bring the religions of the world together. You have a rise in New Age teachings that spew the lie from hell everyone will get to heaven regardless what they believe. People, still hunger to fill that spiritual void only being reconnected to God their Creator through faith in Jesus Christ can fill, so the emergence of a one-world religion is more likely today than ever before in human history.

I love you and care about you so much. My purpose today is not to get into a deep discussion of eschatology, or end time events, but to encourage you to be part of the real 1%! The fact is, Jesus is coming back as He promised, the world will ultimately be judged as God unleashes His wrath upon His fallen creation, those who know Jesus as their Savior by faith will be forever in Heaven, and that in the end, God wins!!! The key for you today is that the one-world government, economy, and religion spoken of in the Bible is more of a reality today than ever before, and why the real 1% must take their stand for Christ.

The time is short and that is why I am so passionate about the last work God has called me to perform here at Liveprayer, and that is to help lead this nation back to God and to Biblical Truth while we still have that chance. While we minister to the needs of people around the world each day, bring God’s Truth into the marketplace, and lead lost souls to faith in Jesus Christ, leading the United States back to God and to His Truth is the only hope we have to redeem this rebellious nation.

We no longer have the luxury of sitting back in apathy and hoping things will change. Things will only change if we actively initiate the change. We have the power of God with us. We have the Truth of His Word to gudies us. We either sit back and watch our nation continue to sink into the spiritual abyss and lost forever, or we take our stand now and lead this spiritual revolution since the only answer and the only hope we have of escaping God’s continued wrath and judgment is to turn back to our Creator and to Biblical Truth. There is no time left, we must act now!!! Will you be part of the REAL 1%??

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

Turning Back to God and His Truth is the Only Answer There Is

Leave a comment

(Jonah 3:5-10)

***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.

Turning back to God and His Truth is the ONLY answer there is, as those hoping for a political answer saw that option completely obliterated over these past several days! For those who were still holding out hope for some political answer to help turn this nation around, especially after a landslide victory by Republicans just 6 weeks ago, it is time to wake up and deal with reality!

Reality is those who control the two major political parties are one in the same, there is really no difference and never has been. With the passing of the $1.1 trillion dollar spending bill, President Obama got all the money he wanted to advance the nightmare that has or will affect every man, woman, and
child known as Obamacare, his lawless immigration policy the heads of BOTH parties support, and his failed green energy push to eliminate fossil fuels.

Meanwhile, the Republicans got provisions they wanted allowing people to give virtually unlimited amounts of money effectively killing the Tea Party. Back in the early 90s, Promise Keepers rose up as a true move of God’s Holy Spirit impacting millions of men. After the first few years, Coach McCartney who God gave this vision to, gave in to allow the organization to be “organized” and make many key people lots of money, ultimately killing that true move of the Spirit. Likewise, the Tea Party rose up in 2009 as a sovereign move of the people.

Sadly, people like Dick Armey who created Freedom Works, Mormon cult member Glenn Beck, and several others found ways to “organize” and worse, PROFIT off of the Tea Party that took the organic power out of the movement. The Tea Party was virtually a non-player in the recent Republican wave this past November and with these new campaign finance laws opening the money-gates, will never be able to compete monetarily against the establishment and has thus been neutered.

This also insures what I told you earlier this year that the 2016 nominee for the Republican Party will be Mitt Romney, a 5th generation high priest of a satan worshipping cult leading souls to hell with a false gospel. While the blind will cheer him to victory, very few will comprehend that if God allows such a person to rise to the Presidency it will be the final nail in the coffin of the soul of the United States!

Sadly, those cheering the loudest will be Christians! In this generation of Biblically illiterate and discernment-less people in the pews of weak and compromised churches, they will not even remember Romney was the Dr. Frankenstein who created Jonathan Gruber, that he signed into law $50 co-pay abortions as governor of Massachusetts, and supported the perversion of God’s Holy Institution of Marriage allowing people of the same sex to legally marry in his state.

They also have no clue Romney will be running for ONE REASON, and that is to be the fulfillment of the satanic prophecy of his cult’s founder Joseph Smith. The “White Horse Prophecy” stated that the United States will be in a time of great turmoil and a Mormon will become President, setting aside the US Constitution and enacting a Mormon theocracy. Crazy you say? Romney, Beck and all in their cult believe it. In college at BYU, Romney’s closest friends all called him “the one,” believing he WAS the fulfillment of Smith’s White Horse Prophecy.

Did you ever think you would have a President who we still don’t really know where he was born, how he got into Occidental, Columbia, or Harvard? We have NO CLUE who paid for his incredibly expensive college tuition over those many years. As the first black president of the Harvard Law Review, why have all of his writings been sealed? For that matter, why has the President spent several million sealing and scrubbing ALL of his personal information such as his birth, passport, school, and social security records???

As I told you earlier this year (
http://www.liveprayer.com/ddarchive3.cfm?id=5630 ), if God does allow Mormon cult member Mitt Romney to become the 45th President of the United States, this nation is done! It will be the final death nil as God will have totally abandoned our land and we will see His full wrath and judgment unleashed.

Will we be like the children of Israel or the people of Nineveh? The United States is at a fork in the road. We will either experience the full wrath and judgment of God like the children of Israel, or we will see God stay His hand of punishment for a season and millions get saved like the people of Nineveh!!!

In the Old Testament, while the priests of the day sat in their beautiful homes, dressed in the best clothes, eating the most sumptuous food, living like royalty by compromising with the politicians of their day and telling the people things to make them feel good for a few minutes in order to keep the money rolling in (sound familiar?), the prophets lived in caves, dressed in meager clothes, ate cow dung, and were scorned, ridiculed, hated, and dismissed by the masses as fools.

Why? Because the prophet couldn’t be bought by the politicians of the day. The prophets called out the priests for their compromise and using God for their own commerce. The prophets had the guts to not care about people being upset with their message, since their only loyalty was to God and the message He gave them to preach. No matter how unpopular their message was, no matter how may times they were beaten, thrown in prison, spat upon, they never wavered.

Sadly, many times in the early history of Israel, they turned their back on God. They engaged in every kind of sin you can name. They forsook God for the false gods and idols of the world. The prophet saw the judgment of God coming. The prophet warned the people of his coming wrath if they didn’t repent. There was a remnant, those who refused to bow their knee to baal. However, this remnant was mostly silent.

The masses of the day rejected the warnings of the prophet. As the prophet warned, God’s wrath and judgment was poured out on the children of Israel. I have no doubt they were oblivious to what was about to happen. I also have no doubt that as they suffered the judgment of God they remembered the warnings of the prophet that they tuned out and ignored!

The hope for this nation lies in the account of what happened in Nineveh. God sent a very reluctant and rebellious prophet to Nineveh. God had to deal with Jonah in a harsh way before he was willing to deliver God’s Word to the people. However, once he was obedient, the people not only heard his warning of God’s pending judgment, but they responded!

The Bible tells how they repented of their sins, they turned to the God of Israel, and millions were saved as God stayed His judgment for a season. AMEN! My Bible says God is no respecter of person. If God stayed His hand of judgment on the people of Nineveh, God will stay His hand of judgment on the people of the United States! The key is, will we respond to the warnings from the prophet as the people of Nineveh, or will we respond to the warnings from the prophet as the children of Israel?

I love you and care about you so much! Just like in Israel, there is a remnant, those who are faithful to the Lord and won’t bow their knee to baal! Today, the remnant here in the United States must not be silent but rise up! As I have faithfully delivered God’s Truth for over 22 yrs, every day here at Liveprayer for 15+ yrs and on nearly 12 years on TV, I can’t do this alone. I need you, the remnant, to rise up and help me!

Several years ago, right before God began to unleash His judgment on this nation thru the economy, the Lord led me to launch the Jonah Project. Most dismissed it at the time, but in hindsight, it was God trying to prepare His people for what was to come. Take a few minutes and go to the Jonah Project web page at, http://www.liveprayer.com/jonah

There is a 7-8 min. video that will play when you get there which lays out the vision of the Jonah Project. Again, as you will see, it was God preparing His people for action as He began to unleash His judgment on our nation. Pray, SEE the vision, get signed up, and be part of this last days remnant who is going to call this nation to repentance and to turn back to God and His Truth.

***As we head into the final 16 days of the year, please be in prayer with me for the operational finances we require right away. We still require the final $10,000 of our November shortfall and I am praying for 1 of our friends in the Liveprayer family to help us with a special year-end gift to insure this amount is covered TODAY so we can begin to work on the $40,000 we require for our December internet operations and the $25,000 we require for the TV program in December.

—>Please pray about a special one-time year-end gift of $1,000 or more to help me insure Liveprayer continues to be a beacon of light to so many each day! Just 10 people making that special sacrifce would cover our November shortfall,and 75 people would insure we end the year with 100% of our basic internet and TV operations current!!!

The Bible teaches to give according to your ability to give. For some that may be $5, for other it may be $20, for others it may be $50. Still others God has blessed and you can make a sacrifce today of $100, $300, $500, $1,000, or more. Never forget that it is not the amount God sees, but your sacrifice, and He will honor your heart as you obey His voice.

Will you help me today? Will you please take a minute today, and pray, seek the Lord what He is asking you to sacrifce to help me as we boldly stand where virtually nobody else will, in the marketplace declaring His Truth as unpopular as that is today, to help lead this nation back to God and Biblicla Truth while leading the lost to faith in Jesus Christ!

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 made the decision 20 yrs ago that my only allegiance was to the Lord and His Truth, to see souls saved. I have had numerous opportunities over the years to compromise as so many do in order to raise money. I have had the opportunity over the years to soften the message, not deal with the real issues, so people will feel good instead of being challenged. Because I have refused to play the games most in large ministries do just to raise money, because I don’t play church politics, like the OT prophets, I am scorned, ridiculed, hated, both by the Christian establishment and those who deny God and His Word. But that is OK. In the end, when I take my last breath, like each one of us the only one I have to answer to is God.

When my work is over, I want to proudly bow before our Lord knowing I had run the race, I hadn’t compromised, I hadn’t sold out, I had been faithful to the Gospel, and the furit of my labor are the tens of millions of lives impacted for the Lord and the more than 900,000 souls we know of who came to know Jesus by faith! All of that has only been made possible by friends like you, the remnant, who has stood with me in prayer and making the sacrifce to give to enable this ministry to do the work we have been called to.

I ask again, “will we respond to the warnings from the prophet as the people of Nineveh, or will we respond to the warnings from the prophet as the children of Israel?”

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

It Is A Time of Year for Great Feasts

Leave a comment

(Proverbs 25:27)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, even though I am a Christian, I don’t have the love for others (thy neighbor) that Jesus commands us to have. I have been praying for the Holy Spirit to supernaturally fill me with this love, but it hasn’t happened. All I know to do is keep praying about it. Any suggestions?

ANSWER: This is a common question Believers have. Loving others is NOT something nobody does naturally. It require the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit that resides with all Believers. Pray, and seek the Lord for that supernatural ability to “love others as you love yourself.” The old adage practice makes perfect is true. The more you practice loving others, the more you will find the ability to love your neighbor no matter who that neighbor is!

With Thanksgiving behind us, and Christmas ahead, it is a time of year for great feasts. In my years of ministry, I could always get the “Amen corner” into my sermons when I preached against homosexuality, preached against the more visible sins. On those occasions when I preached on the sin of gluttony, it usually got very quiet. I realize this will be a difficult read for many today, but that is one reason I am here to challenge you.

Let me say right up front, gluttony IS a sin. God said so. Anything that you do in excess, to your detriment, to the detriment of your ability to serve God, that is ahead of your daily relationship with God, is a sin.

Let me also add something very important. There are just as many skinny gluttons as overweight gluttons! Let me say that once more. There are just as many skinny gluttons as overweight gluttons. Being overweight can be caused by many things, and just because a person is heavy, does NOT mean they are a glutton. Again, ANYTHING that you put ahead of your relationship with the Lord is a sin. If you are a thin person, but put food ahead of your relationship with Christ, you are a glutton!

I know that during the Holiday season many sit down to some incredible feasts. I am not saying you shouldn’t, and I am not saying you should not enjoy food. I believe God gave us food to nourish our body, our taste buds to enjoy food, and eating is a wonderful part of our life. Gluttony however refers to eating in excess. I know many fine men and women of God that live tremendous lives and do great works for the Lord. However, this is an area that they struggle with and that is why I bring it to you today.

Like all sin, gluttony can be overcome, not in our own strength, but in His. Like all sins, if you fight this battle, you need a battle plan. God can give you that plan, the strength to carry it out, and the perseverance to get victory. Like in other sins though, the question becomes, do you really want victory? Do you really want to conquer this foe? Do you even recognize that this is a problem in your life?

At this point, you have either accepted through the prompting of the Holy Spirit that this is an issue in your life, or you have realized that this is not something that you battle with. If you are in the latter category, then I would encourage you to pray for those who do fight this battle each day.

I have no doubt that you know people in your family, school, workplace, church, that are going through this struggle. Pray for them today. Pray that the Lord would open their eyes and show them this is a problem they need to deal with. Pray that they will have the courage, like anyone who is dealing with a specific sin, to admit it and allow the Lord to help them get victory over gluttony.

I love you, care about you, and realize the sensitive nature of this sin. But there is no use in hiding it or candy-coating the problem. It is time to recognize it as a problem, and get busy fighting it and letting God help you to become victorious over this battle in your life.

If you are struggling with gluttony today, I will be praying specifically for you. I realize what a difficult struggle this can be. If you will take that first step, admit this is a problem, God will help you be victorious in this battle with gluttony!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

For Many the Holidy Season is One of the Worst Times of the Year

Leave a comment

(Joshua 1:5)

**ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, 2 Corinthians 4:4 tell us satan is the god of this world and Psalms 24:1 tells us the earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof, the world and they that dwell therein. Satan also tempted Jesus with the ownership of the kingdoms. I know Jesus is coming back to claim it all, but for now who’s world is it anyway?

ANSWER: It has been, is, and always will be the Lord’s. Never doubt that. However, for a “season,” a blip on the radar screen in eternity, satan is loose to attempt to fulfill his goal the Lord warned us about which is “to kill, steal, and destroy.” We have the comfort in knowing his ultimate destination is the Lake of Fire for all eternity, however, for this season he is out to try and take as many souls with him as he can. Again, in the end, we know that the Lord wins!!!

While we usually think of this time of year as a time of being with family and friends, a time of great joy, the fact is for many it is one of the worst times of the year. Many people dread the holiday season because for many reasons they are alone and feel left out of the festivities associated with the Christmas season. It is the time of year when suicides are at their highest. Being alone takes on a new significance during the holidays. This devotional today is dedicated to all of you reading these words who feel this way today. You don’t have the joy, you don’t have the Christmas spirit, because you are alone.

I want to encourage you today. First of all, I want to remind you as God told Joshua, as the Lord told His disciples, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” The fact is, God is always with us. While that fact is comforting, it still does not alleviate the loneliness many feel from a lack of human companionship. In the Book of Hebrews, God commanded that we “not forsake the fellowship of one another.”

That means being part of a local church. You see, one of the important facets of being part of a local church is that it is a source of fellowship. It is where we can find people of like faith, who become part of our life. While many of you understand that God is always with you, and you have fellowship with other believers, you are still dealing with being alone.

The real loneliness that is so strong during this time of year is the loneliness that comes from not having a spouse, or not having a close intimate relationship with your family. One of life’s mysteries to me after many years in the ministry is why God allows some to remain single. I wish I had an answer, but I don’t. The best I can do is to encourage you to treat it like any other battle.

Get a plan, pray, and ask God for wisdom. Have someone who will pray with you and walk through this with you, and then rely on the strength God can give you each day. Don’t be frustrated if you don’t see results right away. His timing is always perfect, His grace sufficient for the day. God knows your desire and understands your need. As for your family, do all that you can to reconcile with any family members you are estranged from during this Christmas season.

I love you so much. I care about you. I know the pain and hurt so many are going thru during this wonderful season when others appear to be so full of joy. Please know that you will be in my prayers. I wish I had a magical answer but I don’t. However, there is One who does have the answer. It is during these times in our life, these times when we hurt and things don’t make sense, that we need to press in even deeper to our daily walk with Christ. You see, that is what will sustain you through those lonely, difficult times.

The promises in His Word are true. We need to find our peace, comfort, and joy in Him. In our service to Him. My best advice for those who are lonely, is to know that you are not alone. Find ways to serve others during this Christmas season. It is in your service that you find the true meaning not only of Christmas, but in what being a Christian is all about. It is also in service that we realize we really are never alone as long as we have Jesus.

As difficult as this Christmas season may be for you because you are alone, let me remind you that I am always here for you. You have the promise of God’s Word that He will never leave you nor forsake you. Here is some advice for those who are alone this Christmas season. Let the Lord use YOU to bring His hope, His love, to someone else who may be alone this Christmas season.

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

Bill Keller

Paul Wrote to His Friends at Philippi

Leave a comment

(Philippines 4:15)

***ASK BILL: I have been getting into the spirit of Christmas listening to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir sing some of the great beloved carols about the birth of Jesus. Please explain to me how such inspirational music honoring Christ is from a bunch of “satan worshippers” as you call them!

ANSWER: Satan was the choirmaster in Heaven before getting booted for trying to usurp God! There are PLENTY of great choirs just as powerful and inspirational who actually ARE Christians!

“Bill, I want you to know you have came in my life by GOD alone! I just want you to know you have been one of the only gateways of spiritual feeding in my life – since I have let my heart and focus wonder off the path of GOD! Keep me in your prayers and thank you for faithfully being there every morning for me and so many others who depend on you!”

“Bill -You & your team have really been on my mind & in my thoughts. I strongly believe you’re doing things the right way, & it breaks my heart that because you give the gospel for free – because you’re out doing things God’s way – you don’t have financial support from the American church to get out in the secular marketplace & to go toe-to-toe with false prophets. My wife & I gave a gift today which isn’t close to meeting your needs or requests, but I pray God blesses it with multiplication. I want to encourage you – your blunt honesty & the fact you do things the right way (no professional fund raising companies, no buildings or extravagant salaries) are why we’re giving today. It’s time for me & other Christians to put our money where our mouths are & quit paying mortgages & utilities for big buildings. Please keep telling the truth, God’s truth. If the finances don’t come in, God forbid, and you are forced to close down any part of your ministry, you have done your part by being obedient before God. It would be the rest of us who failed. Thank you for being on the front lines! Thank you for leading & feeding me spiritually, both in word & deed! I pray today that God move hearts in a powerful way and deliver far more money than you’ve asked for. May He raise up more faithful partners, freeing us from fear & making us better able to hear His commands and then, more importantly, obey them. I realized about a month ago that you are my preacher. Thank you for the daily word. I promise I will lift you up in prayer & give financially to LivePrayer. I pray our Lord bless you & keep you. In God’s love.”

“Bill, You are a daily inspiration to all of mankind worldwide. I thank you today for being straight forward and calling a Spade a Spade. I was living in total rebellion to God for years now. I can only thank God that he used you as an instrument bring this Prodigal Son home. I am back to my passion and that is Hospital Ministry which I so dearly missed while feeding and eating with pigs for almost 3 years. Thank you for helping me come back to my first love, the Lord and His work!”

“My husband and I have been in prayer many many many months about our finances. We were near foreclosure on our businesses . Mr. Keller, thank you for praying! I’m blessed to be able to say that God met our need at the end of the year and we managed to save the businesses catch up on utility bills, celebrate Jesus’ birthday and still have money left after doing our taxes. Please accept this gift from our refund to your wonderful ministry that has been so critical in our lives, and no doubt so many others. When it feels as though you are praying in vain and that you are standing in an empty dark room where no one can here your cries…………let me say GOD IS LISTENING! Thank you for being there and being faithful!”

“Hello Bill, I have just prayed the prayer to accept Jesus as my Savior. I am requesting more information on living as a better Christian. May God bless you and your family for all of your wonderful work.”

Paul wrote to his friends in Philippi, “Moreover, as you Philippians know, in the early days of your acquaintance with the gospel, when I set out from Macedonia, not one church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving, except you only; for even when I was in Thessalonica, you sent me aid again and again when I was in need. Not that I am looking for a gift, but I am looking for what may be credited to your account. I have received full payment and even more; I am amply supplied, now that I have received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent. They are a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God. And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”

As I read that passage of Scripture, it reminded me of my feelings towards you and the work here at Liveprayer. Paul took the Gospel to the lost and hurting in the world of his day by faith, trusting that God would provide for the day to day needs of his ministry. He looked to those that he ministered to to support his efforts to take Christ to those who were living without His love in their life. He was not ashamed to ask them to help him bring God’s Truth to the world of his day and to save souls! THEY MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR PAUL TO DO WHAT GOD HAD CALLED HIM TO DO!

He reminded them that in their giving, they were not giving to Paul, but they were giving to God. It was their obedience and faithfulness that God would credit to their Heavenly account. Likewise, as you give to Liveprayer, you are not giving to Bill Keller, but you are giving to God. It is your obedience and faithfulness that God will credit to your Heavenly account. YOU MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR ME TO DO WHAT GOD HAS CALLED ME TO DO!

I made a choice 20 yrs ago when I answered God’s calling to the ministry, that I was never going to seek funds for my own needs, or to build my own kingdom, only to bring God’s Truth to the marketplace and build God’s Kingdom. I have been faithful to do that month after month without wavering. We are at a critical time in the history of this nation. There is no doubt as I shared with you last November, God has removed His hand of blessing and protection from our land. for our rebellion to Him and His Word. GOD IS OUR ONLY HOPE AND ANSWER!

As we go into the last 19 days of the year, please be in prayer with me for the operational finances we require right away. We still require the last $15,000 of our November shortfall and I am praying for 1 of our friends in the Liveprayer family to help us with a special year-end gift to insure this amount is covered so we can begin to work on the $40,000 we require for our December internet operations and the $25,000 we require for the TV program in December.

—>With just 19 days left in the year, please pray about a special one-time year-end gift of $1,000 or more to help me insure Liveprayer continues to be a beacon of light to so many each day! Just 15 people making that special sacrifce would cover our November shortfall,and 80 people would insure we end the year with 100% of our basic internet and TV operations current!!!

The Bible teaches to give according to your ability to give. For some that may be $5, for other it may be $20, for others it may be $50. Still others God has blessed and you can make a sacrifce today of $100, $300, $500, $1,000, or more. Never forget that it is not the amount God sees, but your sacrifice, and He will honor your heart as you obey His voice.

Will you help me today? Will you please take a minute today, and pray, seek the Lord what He is asking you to sacrifce to help me as we boldly stand where virtually nobody else will, in the marketplace declaring His Truth as unpopular as that is today, to help lead this nation back to God and Biblicla Truth while leading the lost to faith in Jesus Christ!

I love you and care about you so much. For over 15 yrs I have walked by faith, not trusting in the devices of man, but God to move on hearts to help me. Together we have impacted tens of millions of lives worldwide and over 900,000 souls we know of will be in Heaven. However, our work is not quite finished, and I need you now more than ever!

Know that you and your family are in my prayers each day and that this is the most blessed Christmas season ever. Thank you for your love, prayers, and sacrifce as we take our stand in these last days. The time is very short, our time is now! Will you make a sacrifice today and stand with me?

Gender Division

Leave a comment

(Genesis 2:15, 3:19; Proverbs 13:4; Genesis 1:27; Galatians 3:28)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, after a recent disagreement, I was told by my spouse that he could go anywhere he wants, whenever he wants, see whoever he wants, stay as long as he wants, and make any decisions he wants without consulting me. Don’t spouses owe each other that type of consideration and communication?

ANSWER: That is not a spouse, it is a dictator, and it is certainly NOT the way God designed marriage. A husband and wife are 100% equal, with different roles to play. Those who want to disregard the Bible point to passages about a wife being obedient. What they fail to mention, is that on the other side, the man is to love his wife as Christ loves the church. MARRIAGE IS A MUTUAL RELATIONSHIP OF LOVE, PATIENCE, UNDERSTANDING, NURTURING, BASED ON A SHARED FAITH IN CHRIST!

Gender division is simply the latest ploy used by those seeking to fulfill their own selfish personal or political goals! Division of any kind, the color of your skin, the amount of your bank account, or anything else man uses to pit one group of people against another is right from the playbook of satan and has been used since the Garden of Eden. The first murder occurred as Cain killed his brother out of jealousy! Sadly today, men and women are being divided simply by virtue of their gender.

It is NOT an accident that you have a major publication like the Rolling Stone magazine committing gross journalistic malpractice with their recent story of a woman claiming she was gang raped at a University of Virginia frat party which they have now said really didn’t happen. Actress Lena Dunham had a book published by Random House, a major book publisher, where she spoke of being raped in college by a “Republican.” It now turns out the person she claimed to be her rapist really wasn’t. Add to these examples the mythical “war on women” by one of the two major political parties, and you can see that there are people who for personal and/or political gain are purposely trying to divide men and woman.

This has been made possible largely due to the blurring of the Biblical roles of men and women over the last 50 years, until today those roles have all but been obliterated. In the rebellion that emerged in the 60s, God’s defined roles for men and women became a huge target by radical groups of women. Just recently, a study was released that 41% of the primary breadwinners are now women. Of course, the secular media cheered this report, but was there really something to cheer about? In context, just 50 years ago, one generation, that percentage of women who were the primary breadwinner was just 11%. I submit to you today this study proves what I have been saying for years and is not something to celebrate, but lament!!!

I have no doubt that this will be one of the more unpopular Devotionals I have ever written, but it is a message that is long overdue. I am always amused at the feminists and liberal theologians that state the Bible is anti-woman and that Paul was a male chauvinist. Nobody who understands God’s Word would make such a foolish claim since nothing could be further from the truth. The Bible is very much PRO woman and clearly teaches that God made men and women 100% equal with separate roles to play. Paul, in teaching equality between men and women, was a pioneer for women’s rights in a day when women were viewed as little more than property. One of the roles God has called men to play is that of a leader, a role many men have failed to live up to.

Out of the rebellion in the ’60s came the women’s movement. Satan is a liar, and the lie he told to women was that they needed to be equal with men. But if you read and study God’s Word, the TRUTH, you realize that according to God a woman is already equal to a man. Men and women are 100% equal, they simply have different roles to play. Sadly, women bought this lie and for what little strides there may have been in regard to women getting a few more dollars for their work, the long-term consequences have been disastrous for women, men, children, and society as a whole.

Two generations later the results are men and women living totally outside of the roles God intended for them to have, neither really being sure any longer what those roles even are. Let me be so bold to say that we now have the largest percentage of 2 generations of men who are spineless, gutless, confused, and lost. They fail to lead in their marriage. They fail to lead in their homes. They fail to lead in their careers. They are not the leaders God has called them to be, simply followers. Worst of all, they are not the priests of their homes, having failed in this most important role God has called them to play.

To fill the void left by men failing to perform their God-ordained roles, women have had to take on roles God never intended them to have. One of those roles is a woman working outside of the home to provide for the family. The lie of the world is that women have to go out and work. The sad reality in the year 2014 is that many men expect their wives to work and earn a certain amount of money. Let me break this down for you men, YOU, NOT YOUR WIFE, ARE SUPPOSED TO SUPPORT YOUR FAMILY!

This is not demeaning women or their abilities in any way. It is not a matter of if a woman can do the same job as a man, but the fact God never intended for them to do the same job as a man! God gave a woman the most important job of all and that is raising your children in the admonition of the Lord. No matter what else you may do in your life, that is the number one job and ministry a woman will ever have!!!

Listen, I am well aware of the argument that both spouses have to work. The reality is, economics have not changed since the days not that long ago when most women did not work. It is our desires for the things of this world that have changed. God’s plan is for men to work and support their family and women to raise the children with the help and support of their husbands. If you don’t have children, there is nothing wrong with working, but the husband is still supposed to be the primary source of support in the home. Obviously, single moms, single women, and those whose husbands are unable to work, are in special situations where you have no other choice but to work. Know that God will give you the favor, strength, and ability to provide for your family.

Women, let me give you a quick word of counsel. This is why I share so often that marriage is not something to enter into lightly. Please don’t rush into marriage! It is a lifetime commitment. Heed God’s warning about being unequally yoked. Take the time to build a spiritual foundation together. Make sure that the man you are praying about spending the rest of your life with, is a man of God who is following God’s Word and willing to perform the roles God has called him to play. Like I say so often, our way doesn’t work and only brings consequences, God’s way works and brings blessings.

The encouraging thing is every day I get prayer requests from husbands and wives who are restructuring their lives and finances so that the wife can stay at home with the children. There has been a big move in this direction the past few years as women are going back to their natural, God-given roles of being a mother and wife above everything else. This is also forcing men to perform their God-given role as the provider for their family. For you parents out there praying about doing this, let me encourage you that God will give you the wisdom and favor to restructure your lives and finances so that you can stay home with your children. God will always honor us and help us to follow His plan for our lives.

I love you and care about you so much. I am praying today, especially for the men out there that this will be a wake up call that God has called you to be a leader. You do not have the option of passing on this role God has called you to play if you want to be the man He has raised you up to be. God has called you to protect and provide for your family. God has called you to be the priest of your home and be the spiritual leader of your wife and children. I pray, today, that you will take these roles seriously and ask God to help you fulfill them to the best of your ability.

The biggest problem we have in our world today is the breakdown of the family. It is God’s foundation for society. When the family works, society works. When the family breaks down, society breaks down. We can see clearly that the breakdown of our culture in 2014 can be directly tied to the breakdown of the family. Women have bought into a lie from hell and men have failed to be the leaders God has called them to be!

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

The Headlines are Screaming for a Nation to Turn Back to God

Leave a comment

(Deuteronomy 8:19, 20)

**ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, what does the Bible mean by “filled with the holy spirit” in the Books of Acts?

ANSWER: It was the initial infilling of Believers with the Holy Spirit, “the Comforter” Jesus promised would come after He was gone. Now, ALL receive the Holy Spirit at the moment they accept the Lord by faith. Yielding to the power of the Holy Spirit to be guided “by the Spirit and not the flesh” is the challenge of every Believer each and every day.

The headlines of the past few days are SCREAMING for a nation to turn back to God and signs here and around the world that the judgment of God is falling and our ONLY hope is to turn back to God and His Truth! As you read through these news headlines and the few comments I made, remember we are counting down the final 100 days of this critical year, 21 days to go, God’s hand of protection and blessings is OFF this nation, and these are simply a few of the daily signs to a lost and hurting nation in spiritual freefall to turn back to our Creator and His Truth or face His ultimate wrath and judgment as the children of Israel did many times for their sin and rebellion!!!

-Muslims returning from fighting for ISIS talk about their dreams of a worldwide Muslim state, the ULTIMATE goal of Islam since its’ inception 1400 years ago and of ALL Muslims in the world…including those in the United States! England is having huge problems as heavily populated Muslim areas have taken over the curriculum of their local schools, and Germans are protesting the Islamization of their country. *As I have tried to help educate you, this is what Islam has been about over the 1400 years it has existed. As the final days of human history unfold, we are seeing the global rise of Islam.

-Online shopping if quickly overtaking traditional shopping. This is simply another computer-based infrastructure whose vulnerability we have already witnessed via the hacking of credit card and consumer info from Home Depot, PF Changs, and many other retailers. *As I have recently written in a Daily Devotional regarding this issue, our daily lives are totally dependant upon computer infrastructures. ALL of these computer infrastructures are highly vulnerable to hacking, and worse, complete shutdowns that would change life as we know it overnight.

-NBA superstars Lebron James of the Cleveland Cavs and Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls recently donned warm-up shirts with the words “I Can’t Breath” showing their support for Eric Garner who died while resisting arrest in Staten Island, and 5 members of the St. Louis Rams NFL team came out during player introductions with their “hands up,” a gesture showing their support for Michael Brown slain by police after robbing a convenience store and assaulting a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. *A mantra that has emerged from these two incidents being used by different groups to advance their political agendas by ginning up the racial animus in this nation is that “every black life is precious.” I agree 100% with that statement, and wonder why none of these activist groups or high profile athletes don’t speak out in support of the apx. 1,800 black babies (out of apx 4,000 total) slaughtered in this nation every 24 hours! Why aren’t THOSE black lives precious???

-The FOX TV network program “The Family Guy” aired a program this past Sunday night blaspheming Jesus by portraying the Lord as a lying, sex-crazed adulterer! *I am waiting for the arrogant Bill O’Reilly or anyone else at FOX News, part of billionaire pornographer Rupert Murdoch’s vast media empire that includes the FOX TV network, to blast this blasphemous representation of Jesus as they do other broadcast outlets and people in the culture who make similar disgusting representations of the Lord. I won’t hold my breath since their mythical “war on Christmas” card played this time every year doesn’t count when it is their own corporation waging that war. Memo to Family Guy: Let’s see you cowards make such a representation of Mohammed and Muslims!

-Churches around the nation are being used as “sanctuaries” for illegal aliens who broke the law to come into this nation. *I find it sad that churches are quick to come to the aid of people who have broken the laws of this nation, but have no interest in coming to the aid of people who have broken the laws of God! Most churches are no longer a place find spiritual help or faith in Jesus, but little more than social entities and political pawns like the rest of the world.

-The state of Florida has approved a “satanic temple” to be displayed at the capitol this year.An angel falling into a fire pit and two Bible verses on the side will join other religious expressions wishing people a happy holidays. *What more needs to be said of a culture that makes a moral equivalency between worshipping satan and Jesus!

I love and care about you so much. God is showing us DAILY that we must stop, turn back to Him and His Truth or be destroyed as He promised to do in today’s anchor verse. COMMIT IT TO MEMORY! “If you ever forget the Lord your God and follow other gods and worship and bow down to them, I testify against you today that you will surely be destroyed. Like the nations the Lord destroyed before you, so you will be destroyed for not obeying the Lord your God.” Deuteronomy 8:19, 20.

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

Bill Keller
