The Outrage of the Killing of Cecil the Lion

Leave a comment

(Genesis 2:7, Job 31:15, Psalm 22:9,10, Isaiah 44:2)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, I ask you today to open my heart and my Spirit to receive what you have for me today. Let me hear Your voice clearly and obediently follow You. Use me oh Lord, for your glory and to advance Your Kingdom! In the name of Jesus…AMEN!!!

The outrage of the killing of Cecil the lion! A Minnesota dentist went to Zimbabwe to hunt lions and ended up killing an iconic 13-year old lion in Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park named Cecil. Local officials said the hunter paid park rangers to lure Cecil out of park and into the wild where he killed the animal. The illegal killing of this prized lion has caused outrage around the world and has been the number one story in the US media.

As sad and tragic as this story is, it is appalling that the killing of one lion in Africa has caused more outrage and public condemnation than the revelation of Planned Parenthood’s side business of selling organs and tissues from the babies they slaughter each day! The same media that has found out every detail about the life of this Minnesota dentist in mere hours, is the same media that won’t even cover the story of Planned Parenthood’s barbarism other than to defend it!

In December of 2007, former Atlanta Falcon QB and NFL superstar Michael Vick was sentenced to 23 months in Federal Prison for dog fighting. While he broke the law and is being held accountable for his actions, I couldn’t help but to think of the many abortion doctors in this nation who go to work every day, slaughter innocent babies, and go home at night to their families without ever being held accountable for their actions. Today’s Devotional is a sobering look at where we are as a nation and a people.

In the United States, the life of a lion or dog is worth more than the life of a human being! Back in 2007, the nation was riveted and closely followed the story of NFL superstar quarterback Michael Vick. It came to light that Vick financed and was an active participant in running a dog fighting enterprise. Fighting dogs is illegal in all 50 states. Additionally, hundreds of thousands of dollars were illegally gambled on these dog fights, and what has enraged most people, was the inhumane treatment of these animals including killing them in numerous brutal ways. Vick has not only been linked to financing this dog fighting operation, but gambling on the fights and personally killing several of the dogs who didn’t perform well.

In the United States in the year 2015, it is illegal to kill a dog but legal to kill a baby! Let me say that one more time since I want this FACT to really sink in. In the United States in the year 2015, it is illegal to kill a dog, but legal to kill a baby! WOW! Does that put the whole Cecil story and what happened to Michael Vick in a different light and show just how spiritually bankrupt we are as a nation? Want more? Michael Vick went to prison for 23 months for killing dogs, yet every single day all over this nation, “doctors” are slaughtering 4,000 babies and going home to their families at the end of the day.

Michael Vick went to Federal prison for killing dogs, but the “doctors” who are paid very well to kill over 4,000 babies EVERY SINGLE DAY in this nation are free!!!

Another aspect of the Vick case that I watched closely as I have the story of Cecil the lion, is the across-the-board outrage by people regarding what happened to these animals. You will be hard pressed to find anyone who even tries to support, let alone, condone what that dentist or Michael Vick did. As it is today, it was virtually universal condemnation for what Vick did to those dogs. What baffles me is where is that same universal condemnation over the fact we kill 4,000 babies in this nation every day? How can the masses get so riled up over the inhumane treatment and killing of a handful of dogs or a lion in Africa, yet sit back in silence as every 24 hours another 4,000 babies are slaughtered?

Here is an interesting side note that can’t go unnoticed. PETA, the ultra liberal People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, was front and center in calling for Vick’s hide and exploited the Vick story to raise millions of dollars for their cause. The hypocrisy is that the vast percentage of people who follow and support PETA also support a woman’s right to kill her baby. So you have this animal rights advocacy group who takes every opportunity to bully and intimidate people who have anything to do with animals, all the way from how cows and chickens are slaughtered to the way animals are killed by fast food restaurants to the killing of animals to make fur coats, leading the charge against Vick for fighting and killing dogs, yet most people in this same group supports the killing of babies!

The real story of the sad and sickening Michael Vick dog fighting/killing tragedy and the killing of Cecil the lion is that in this nation we clearly put more value on the life of an animal than we do a human. It is clear that the life of a lion or dog is more important to society than the life of a baby. This is the only conclusion you can draw since it is illegal in all 50 states to kill dogs but not babies. Someone like Vick who was found guilty of killing dogs went to prison while the “doctors” who kill babies live in freedom. Society has determined that the life of a dog, or as today’s news shows us a lion, is more important than the life of a baby!!!

This is so critical since now it is easy to understand why we are in the spiritual abyss we find ourselves in. The Absolute Truth of the Bible has been replaced by “every man doing what is right in their own eyes.” You see, it is no longer God our Creator who determines Truth, each person is deciding that for themselves. That is why people now accept homosexual relationships that God clearly calls a sin, redefining what God said marriage and the family were to be, all of the false gods of the world, and every other form of rebellion to God and His Word that you can name. When men determine what truth is, that is how you end up with the mass outraged over the death of a lion or a few dogs, yet no response at all to the daily slaughter of 4,000 babies!

I love you and care about you so much. In 16 years, all of the warnings I have been sharing with you are coming to pass. I remember getting emails telling me I was paranoid, the things I shared would never happen, yet here we are in July 2015 and this nation is in spiritual freefall. I see a very small window that could allow us to reclaim this great nation for Christ, but with each passing day that window gets smaller.

The nation has turned to the false gods of the world, the man-made idols, and has chosen to live in complete rebellion to God and the Truth of His Word. Most of Christendom has retreated behind the four walls of the church into the “Christian trough” where they have virtually no impact on the world at large. We have relegated ourselves to what amounts to a modern day leper colony. Christians have become the 21st century lepers. We are treated like outcasts. Despite having the power of Almighty God, we have chosen to hide in our Christian subculture while the world we live in is sinning its way into obliteration with souls dying and going to hell on conveyor belts!

Nothing more exemplifies this than the story of Cecil the lion being killed or the Vick case years ago. Let me clearly state that I believe those who treat animals in an inhumane way should be punished. I never personally understood people “hunting” animals for sport. Dog fighting is a barbaric sport that should be against the law. Those who kill dogs for sport should be prosecuted. I don’t feel sorry for Michael Vick at all and whatever he got what he deserved for his actions.

However, the point I want you to understand today is that as heinous and horrible as the killing of Cecil the lion or the actions of Vick were, the disconnect comes when heinous and horrible acts on a human being are not only legal, but supported by millions of people. Many of the same people who have gone ballistic about the killing of a lion or what Vick did to a few dogs, go equally ballistic if you talk about outlawing the killing of babies or defunding the largest baby-killing business in the world!!!

If you ever needed a reminder regarding the depth of spiritual decay in this country, the killing of Cecil the lion and the Michael Vick cases are that reminder. The reality is that in this country, the life of a lion or dog is more precious than the life of a baby!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

My Prayer is Asking You to Stand in Agreement with Me

Leave a comment

(1 Corinthians 1:9)

“God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” 1 Corinthians 1:9

My Prayer: “God, thank you for Your love, Your grace, and Your mercy that You have showed in my life. I thank you for allowing me to serve you over these past 23 years. I thank you for giving me the vision of Liveprayer 16 yrs ago, and allowing this unique instrument YOU created to impact tens of millions of lives worldwide, respond to over 100 million emails for prayer, the 10 million praise reports testifying to Your faithfulness, and the 900,000 souls we know of who are or will be in Heaven for all eternity. YOU OH GOD ARE MOST WORTHY TO BE PRAISED!!!

Lord, I come to You today, humbly, but boldly as Your Word instructs. I know based on what You have shown me that our work here is not quite finished. You have shown me that this work of Yours called Liveprayer is to be an instrument You use to sound the trump of warning and help lead this nation back to You and Your Truth before Your wrath and judgment is upon us.

Father, I have given You everything I have physically, mentally, emotionally, financially over these past 23 years in my service to You. I have never compromised Your Truth no matter what the personal consequences have been. You know my heart and that I have never done anything in Your name for money, nor have I exploited You or Your work here for financial gain. My humble prayer since that first month back in 1992 was simply to supply the needs of Your work to bring Your Truth to the marketplace, to pray for the lost and saved alike in their time of need, and to give people the opportunity to accept Your Son as their personal Savior by faith. I have trusted You not for personal riches, but to simply take care of my basic daily needs of food, clothing, and shelter.

You have opened the door for the TV program to be back on the air 27 months ago. I know it is part of Your plan that the TV program You gave me the vision to develop in 2003 was to be the final ministry tool in our work of leading our nation to a national revival and back to You and Your Truth in order to escape Your final wrath and judgment. I have been obedient, and faithful, and have stood on the front lines to deliver Your Truth to a world that is hostile to that Truth, but a world that will one day embrace that Truth as their only hope and answer!

I come to You today Lord, because I have nowhere else to turn. By not turning to the ways of the world, only preaching to the choir and using the well developed tricks of men to get people to give money, we have struggled since day one to simply do all I have ever asked of You, and that was to give me the funds each month to pay our basic operating costs. You know I have never asked for a penny more than what was needed that month, never asked You for anything for myself other than to simply be able to live day to day. Satan’s ONLY way of impeding our work, ONLY way to keep my voice with Your words from reaching more people, has been our finances.

I have accepted that just like by speaking for You in the public square I would be hated, reviled, ridiculed, scorned, spat upon, and have my life threatened. I am honored and unworthy to be persecuted for the sake of the Gospel! As we have gotten closer to our final work for You oh God, as we have worked with little to put the final pieces in place, the challenges simply to exist have multiplied exponentially. It is by Your grace so many dear friends and those who love You have made incredible sacrifices over these past 16 yrs to see the work of Liveprayer continue. In the past several years, many of our friends have seen their finances challenged by the current economy and have been unable to help us as they once did.

But You oh Lord always have a “ram in the bush.” You have brought our work to the heart of those who have been able to make the great sacrifce to help us and see Your work here continue. It is no surprise having walked this walk of faith over 23 yrs now that satan is taking one last attempt to silence Liveprayer. He knows You have an army of angels encamped around me, protecting, and until You say my work is finished I will be here to boldly declare the Truth of Your Word and the Gospel of Jesus Christ to this lost world. His only hope is to cause confusion and apathy in the hearts of those who have the ability to help us.

Oh Lord my God, I come to You this day and ask that You take off the blinders from those who satan has deceived, open the hearts of those satan has lied to, and let Your Holy Spirit inspire those You have blessed and enabled to step in and support Your work here. It has never been so critical in all of these years of toil, yet I have never had such peace since I know in the end it has never been me, but always You! I am asking, no demanding, that satan be bound from the hearts and minds of those You are speaking to this day!

If the world can raise billions for political ideologies, worthy causes of every kind, if those who work in your name can raise tens of millions to buy private jets, mansions, Bentley’s, buildings with huge staffs, stay in $10,000 a night hotel suites to live like the wayward “priests” in the OT, than I KNOW that You can move on hearts to help us raise the $65,000 we simply need to operate each month. It is a modern loaves and fishes miracle that for a little over $2,200 a day, we can minister each day to over 2.5 million worldwide, respond each day to 40,000 emails for prayer, do a “live” TV program for 2 hours every Mon-Fri seen by over 100,000 people in over 100 markets around the nation, while seeing apx. 2,000 souls every week come to faith in Your Son!

Oh God, my back is to the wall, the wolves are at the door demanding the funds we owe to simply operate, and I am simply on my knees asking You oh God to help me this day. Move on hearts and minds of those who can help me in this hour of distress. As we have stood with literally millions worldwide over the years, let those who You speak to stand with Your work here in our time of need. Thank you Lord for your love, grace, and mercy! I will never falter no matter what the circumstances, and as I have for 23 years now, faithfully declaring Your Truth and Gospel to a lost and hurting world that needs You more than ever. AMEN!”

After 16 yrs of Liveprayer, over 5,800 Daily Devotionals, this is a first for me. Let me say up front, THANK YOU to all my friends who sent such encouraging and loving emails yesterday. In the midst of our daily work, the financial challenges we are dealing with, and the unprecedented amount of death threats and hate mail from taking a Biblical stand on this satanically inspired division tearing our nation apart, it was a blessing above and beyond what you can imagine. For those who took the time and effort to share your love and encouragement..THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU!

Here is where we are at this moment. Having just covered the balance of our June operations late last week, we still need to cover $55,000 of our $40,000 July Internet operations/$25,000 July TV. With just 2 days left, we are now $15,000 critically overdue on basic July operations from the first weeks of the month. I am asking YOU to pray today about being one of 3 people who is able to help me right away with a special one-time gift of $5,000 to insure this critical past due amount is taken care of. This will take a TON of pressure off me and at least keeps our basic operations up to date. If everyone else will pray, give as the Lord guides them to give, I am standing in faith that by the start of next week, ALL of our July operations will be current!!!

I know that I am asking some of you to make an incredible sacrifce. I guess because I spend 12-15 hours every day on our work here at Liveprayer, and have for 16 yrs now since we started, I look at things so different than most. However, over those 16 yrs, it has been the love, prayers, and incredible sacrifce of so many that even allowed us to get to where we are and have the impact on millions and millions of lives worldwide. As I have shared many times, our only real legacy will be those lives we have impacted for the Lord.

I AM NOT GOING TO LET SATAN SLOW DOWN OR END GOD’S WORK HERE AFTER 16 YEARS OF PRAYERS AND SACRIFICES BY SO MANY. WE ARE NOT FINISHED! GOD HAS ONE LAST WORK FOR US TO PERFORM AND THAT IS TO HELP LEAD A NATIONAL REVIVAL. WE NOW HAVE ALL THE PIECES WITH THE TV PROGRAM BACK ON THE AIR, AND I REFUSE TO LET SATAN STOP US NOW!!! I NEED YOUR PRAYERS, AND I NEED YOUR HELP TODAY!!!

I love and care about you so much. Please stand in agreement with me for my prayer at the beginning. It is exciting being in the Lord’s service, though, it is not for the faint of heart. It is the love, prayers, and kindness of friends like you who make it all possible. Know that I pray for you and your family daily, since it is no accident or coincidence God has brought us together for this season. We will keep pressing on towards the prize, letting nothing deter us since we know satan is a liar and a loser, knowing that in the end…JESUS HAS ALREADY WON!!!! AMEN!!! AMEN!!! AMEN!!!

The Headlines of the Day are Screaming for a Nation to Turn Back to God

Leave a comment

(Deuteronomy 8:19, 20)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, bless me this day to have the courage to stand up for YOUR TRUTH in my daily life. Give me boldness to proclaim YOUR TRUTH when I am with those who mock and demean our faith in Christ and for following the teachings of the Bible. No matter what they may say, let me be not afraid to stand for you. In Jesus name…AMEN!

The headlines of the past few days are SCREAMING for a nation to turn back to God! The clear signs are being seen 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 comments I made to help you see these individual issues in the context of the overall spiritual state of our nation, remember God’s hand of protection and blessings is OFF this nation! These are simply a few of the current daily signs to a lost and hurting nation in spiritual freefall to turn back to our Creator and His Truth, or we will face His ultimate wrath and judgment as the children of Israel did many times for their sin and rebellion!!!

-Pray for the people of Lafayette, LA as they heal from the tragic theater shooting. The Liveprayer TV program airs nightly in the Lafayette market, and our prayers are with the family of the two young women who were slain, and for the healing of the 3 still in the hospital recovering from their wounds. This is simply another example of a nation that has virtually NO MENTAL HEALTH infrastructure. As I have shared in the past, mental health professionals say that if you are in the check-out line at a grocery store with 10 people, TWO should not be out in public without daily supervision. Until we address the growing mental health problem that exists in a large percentage of the population, quit using the prison system as the default answer for the problem, we will continue to see the horrific events that occur daily throughout the nation in varying degrees.

-I have dealt extensively on the TV program about the advancement of robotics, that I will address in a Daily Devotional very soon. It is anticipated 20% of jobs currently held by humans will be replaced by robots within the next ten years. There are incredibly advanced versions of human-like robots that are actually doing household chores and playing the role of a spouse. Even more ominous now are actual robot armies that are being developed. Literally an army of robot foot soldiers who engage in warfare like a human army.

-Detroit has unveiled a new 9-foot one-ton statue of satan outside the cities satanic temple.

-If you or I did a fraction of what Hillary Clinton did regarding using a private email server that you would only go to such trouble to set-up in order to insure nobody could ever see your emails, we would not be in jail, we would be UNDER the jail! I am still waiting for the gutless media to question her on her favorite charity, Planned Parenthood, harvesting organs and tissue from the babies they slaughter.

-Speaking of the evil Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, the current President, needs to get on her knees and beg for God’s forgiveness! Defending her baby killing organization last Sunday, she sat there and lied about all of the “women’s services” they provide, when 90% of the income from Planned Parenthood comes from the killing of innocent babies. As I have addressed for over a decade in the Daily Devotional, why does 1/2 BILLION of taxpayer dollars go to fund this private organization that generates apx $500,000 million in billing from killing babies each year and takes in another $400 million in donations! Liveprayer ministers to millions worldwide daily, leads lost souls to faith in Jesus, responds annually to just under 15 million emails for prayer…for right at $800,000! “Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.”

-A Muslim professor at Rutgers made the ridiculous claim that the US is more brutal than ISIS. Even though the case she made to justify this was 100% foolishness, she actually is right when you take into account we slaughter 4,000 innocent babies every 24 hours. Not even ISIS is that brutal!

-Lastly on this issue, Planned Parenthood was founded in the early 1920s for the sole purpose of wiping out the black race. Those pushing this mantra of BlackLivesMatter to advance a political agenda aren’t serious until they start picketing outside abortion clinics where 1,400 of the 4,000 babies murdered each day are BLACK! Why does virtually every black politician support Planned Parenthood, INCLUDING OUR BABY-KILLER IN CHIEF BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA? That is like Jewish politicians supporting Nazi Germany! Even worse, why are virtually ALL of the black churches and high profile black pastors SILENT on this issue?

All of this only exacerbates the fact I have shared with you that God’s hand of protection is no longer on this nation. We are currently on our own. The only question is whether God’s final wrath and judgment will be unleashed ending this nation as we know it, or will we turn back to our Creator and His Truth before it is too late?

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. I wake up every day with the knowledge and understanding that we can still be like the people of Nineveh and that 2015 will be a year of victory as our verse for the year states, “But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!”

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

How Often Do We Pray

Leave a comment

(Luke 17:11-19)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help me to get through this day and the challenges that I will be facing today. Guide me, strengthen me, and give me wisdom as I make choices throughout this day. Please watch over my family and those I love in this world, and keep them safe. I love you Lord, and depend upon you each moment of each day. Bless me as I go through the day, living my life for your glory. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

How often do we pray, asking God to help us with a need in our life, and in His grace and mercy our prayer is answered. The real question for today is, after we get our answer, how often do we spend time just giving Him the praise and thanks He deserves? Mankind really has changed very little over the years. In today’s scripture, we read about the 10 lepers who were healed, yet only one came back to give Jesus thanks.

It is easy to read that passage and condemn the other 9, yet each one of us has probably been guilty of receiving God’s blessings and not being as thankful as we should be. We can get to a place in our walk with the Lord where we are used to His blessings. We can get to a place where we expect His blessings. As His children, we should enjoy the rich blessings of God in our life and live a life of faith expecting Him to bless us. The problem comes when we take His blessings for granted and aren’t as thankful as we should be. We must never forget, we are blessed by His grace…not because we deserve to be blessed.

Today’s message is not difficult or hard to understand. If nothing else, let it be a reminder to you to never take God’s blessings in your life for granted. More important, never forget to show your gratitude for all He does for you each day. Growing up, young children are taught to say please and thank you. It is not only good manners to say thank you, but should be something we want to do. We pray, believe, trust, and see God work . . . the natural reaction should be one of gratitude. Our praise and thanksgiving should flow from a grateful heart for what He has done for us.

The reminder today is to never forget when God is blessing you that it is because He loves you and cares for you. The natural response to that love should be to love Him, adore Him, and give Him the thanks He is due. Check yourself and make sure you are not like the 9 who took their blessing and went on with their life, but like the one who was grateful for what the Lord did for him.

I love you and care about you so much. I pray that you continue to grow closer in your relationship to the Lord. Like any relationship, it doesn’t happen overnight, but grows day by day. I can promise you that the most exciting days are still ahead. He has a perfect plan for each one of His children, and it is our job to stay close to Him so that He can work through our lives to reach others. I will be praying today that you will stay in that close, intimate, daily relationship with Christ that is the key to our life.

Never forget that when you get off track, overwhelmed by the problems this life can present, I will be here to help you. It is no accident you are getting the Devotionals each day, and God is doing His best to speak to you through them. He loves you so much and so do I. You are never alone!!!

Please, take a moment today to simply say a prayer of thanksgiving, and thank God for ALL that He does for you each and every day. It is out of His love for us that He blesses our lives, and it is out of our love for Him that we say THANK YOU!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

The Renewing of Your Mind

Leave a comment

(Romans 12:2)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, YOU are my provider. You know my daily needs. You promised to care what I need each day for life….food, shelter, clothing. I put my trust in you. You own the cattle on a thousand hills, and I come to you today to thank you for providing for my needs in the past, and knowing my needs today. Today, I come to you, asking you to meet those needs as I glorify you for your provision. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

The renewing of your mind. I am convinced that outside of John 3:16, the most important verse in the Bible is Romans 12:2. You see, the foundation of who we are and the decisions we make that lead to our actions come from our mind. This act of renewing your mind becomes the most important task a new believer has and not doing so is the number one reason people backslide.

Think about it this way. The things you see and hear go into your memory. The more you do something, see something, hear something, the more of your memory is taken up by those things. For example, those who are into pornography have a tremendous problem kicking that problem.

Why? Their memory banks are full of the images and sounds. Just looking at an attractive person can trigger those memory banks into full action. You see, before we get saved, most spent many, many years filling their memory banks full of ungodly content. When a person accepts Christ, those memory banks are still full of that content.

The renewing of a person’s mind needs to become one of the very first priorities in their new life with Christ. All of the ungodly content did not get there overnight, and it does not leave overnight. It is a process. The process involves replacing the existing ungodly content with new Godly content.

That is why reading the word is so important. God’s Word acts as a spiritual detergent as it replaces the garbage in your mind with God-inspired content. That is why it is so critical what you watch and what you listen to. What is in your mind ultimately manifests itself in your day-to-day decisions and actions. The reason most new believers fall away is that they never successfully clean out the old thoughts and information in their mind with clean, God-inspired information.

It is similar to programming a computer. The computer basically does exactly what the program says. Your mind reacts based on the program that is in your mind. If that program is full of ungodly information, you have a big chance of being involved in ungodly activities. If it is God-inspired content, then you are more likely to be involved in God-honoring activities.

This basic concept of renewing your mind is the most important process any believer can go through. Many have been walking with Christ for many years, yet have never really totally cleaned out their mind. They have learned how to compartmentalize their mind and keep the ungodly content in a back closet . . . hidden way in the back. But trust me, not dealing with that closet will ultimately result in major problems in your life at some point. I am praying and fasting today that this powerful message, straight from the throne room of God, will make an impact on your life.

This is a message that needs to be printed out and passed around to your friends, associates, schoolmates, bible-study, Sunday school, and hung on bulletin boards in churches. Not enough sermons are preached on this most basic issue that is the cause of so many of God’s people falling away. My prayer is that you will sit down after reading this and ask yourself what is in your mind that is not God-honoring, then make an effort to spend each day cleansing your mind.

Don’t forget, the cleansing process is only part of the problem. You then have to KEEP IT CLEANSED by not putting ungodly content back in. This battle is won or lost in your mind. Realize that your mind is the battle zone and treat it accordingly.

PROTECT IT!!!

I love you and care about you deeply. I am fasting and in prayer today, asking God to let this Word today find it’s way into many hearts and lives. This is critical to our ability to serve God and is a war that must be won. God will help you. God will strengthen you in this renewal process.

Recognize it’s importance and begin this process today of renewing your mind, so that you can be the best servant for the Kingdom possible and know the joy, peace, and blessings this life has to offer. It won’t happen overnight. It is a process . . . day by day. Your number one weapon is His Word. Start the process today . . . it will change your life.

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

God Still has a Plan for this Nation

Leave a comment

(1 Corinthians 15:57)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help me to get through this day and the challenges that I will be facing today. Guide me, strengthen me, and give me wisdom as I make choices throughout this day. Please watch over my family and those I love in this world, and keep them safe. I love you Lord, and depend upon you each moment of each day. Bless me as I go through the day, living my life for your glory. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

***PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT AND PRAY BEFORE YOU READ THIS MESSAGE. I AM ASKING YOU TO SHARE THIS SPECIAL MESSAGE WITH EVERY PERSON YOU KNOW, ESPECIALLY YOUR PASTOR AND THOSE IN YOUR CHURCH AND FRIENDS WHO KNOW THE LORD. I AM ASKING THE LORD FOR HIS PEOPLE WHO ARE WILLING TO TAKE THEIR STAND FOR THE LORD IN THESE LAST DAYS AND WORK WITH ME TO HELP LEAD THIS NATION BACK TO THE ALMIGHTY AND HIS TRUTH WHILE SAVING SOULS.

AFTER THE DEATH AND RESURRECTION OF OUR LORD, IT WAS A HANDFUL OF MEN WHO WERE SOLD OUT, SACRIFICED EVERYTHING INCLUDING THEIR VERY LIFE, THAT GOD USED TO SPREAD THE GOSPEL WORLDWIDE AND IMPACT LITERALLY BILLIONS OVER THE PAST 2,000 YEARS.

IT IS CLEAR FROM WHAT IS HAPPENING IN OUR NATION THAT GOD IS PREPARED TO REMOVE HIS HAND OF PROTECTION AND BLESSING FROM THIS LAND AT ANY MOMENT. WE HAVE NO MORE TIME AND MUST ACT NOW. I AM ASKING THE LORD TO RAISE UP HIS PEOPLE IN THESE FINAL DAYS WHO ARE PREPARED TO SACRIFCE ALL THEY HAVE FOR THE GOSPEL, AND TO STAND WITH ME AS WE LEAD THIS NATION OUT OF THE SPIRITUAL ABYSS AND BACK TO HIS BOUNTIFUL BLESSINGS!!!

“But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!” 1 Corinthians 15:57

God still has a plan for this nation, and in operating by faith and trusting the Lord over many years, Liveprayer has been playing a role in that plan! Let me remind you of what God has had me show you since late November 2007 up until today, and how He has left the door open for the nation to turn back to Him and His Truth and be spared His ultimate wrath and judgment!!!

In November of 2007 I shared in the Daily Devotional that we would begin to see the clear and visible judgment of God falling on this nation for our sins and rebellion to our Creator. Only weeks later the housing bubble burst draining trillions from the economy and affecting tens of millions of people. The ripple effects of that housing crash are still being felt over 7 years later and has crippled millions who have been unemployed or underemployed, many losing all of their wealth that was tied up in their home equity, or others who have faced severe economic challenges.

Heading into the 2008 election for President, I warned you of the consequences this nation would face if they elected Barack Hussein Obama who was not just utterly incompetent and unqualified for the job of President, but worse, a true enemy of God. How else can a man who claims to be a Christian vote 100% of the time to support the legalized slaughter of innocent babies, fully support the radical homosexual agenda, embrace the false religion of Islam to the detriment of Israel, and oppose God and His Word on every spiritual issue of our day?

Since 2008, the Lord gave me the vision to establish the Jonah Project, the Remnant, and the Liveprayer Church. All of these ministry tools have been used to reach the lost and hurting for Christ and bring Biblical Truth into the marketplace, while helping to advance our ultimate objective in leading this nation back to our Creator and Biblical Truth! Jonah Project: http://www.liveprayer.com/jonah/ The Remnant:
http://www.liveprayer.com/remnant.cfm The Liveprayer Church: http://liveprayerchurch.com/

Of course, our two main proven and effective minsitry tools to lead this nation back to God and His Truth while ministering to the daily needs of people worldwide and guiding the lost to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, are the Liveprayer.com website and Daily Devotional daily for the past 16 years and the Liveprayer TV program over the past 12 years. Tens of millions of lives have been impacted worldwide, 100+ million emails for prayer have been received and responded to with over 9 million praise reports archived, and over 900,000 souls we know of who have accepted the Lord by faith.

Liveprayer.com and the Liveprayer TV program gives us a daily presence around the nation and world large enough and growing the media and the world can’t just ignore. IT IS A PRESENCE THAT IS EMPOWERED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT TO OPEN THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF THE LOST WE REACH THAT THERE IS TRUE HOPE AND REAL ANSWERS IN GOD’S WORD AND IN A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST!!!

One of the greatest walks of faith Liveprayer has taken was going into the 2012 Presidential election. I told you long in advance that election would be satan flipping a two-headed coin with his head on both sides! I warned Christians that as evil as President Obama clearly was, DO NOT buy into the lie of the “lesser of two evils” many Christian leaders more worried about politics than souls would try to sell people. Equally as evil as President Obama was a 5th generation high priest of a satan worshipping cult leading souls to hell with a false gospel named Willard Mitt Romney!

The Lord led me to establish the “Vote for Jesus” campaign ( http://vfj.liveprayer.com/ ), encouraging people to be good citizens and vote. However, for President instead of voting for evil, write in the name Jesus as a stand for their faith. 2,186,986 people committed to make that stand, and after the election many media outlets including Romney’s cult brother Glenn Beck on his national radio program, publicly blamed me for President Obama being re-elected. Also, as I knew would happen, Liveprayer had well over $100,000 of annual donations lost as many friends of Liveprayer put politics over souls and stopped supporting God’s work here.

The fact is, it is God, not Bill Keller who allows men to rise to power and takes men out of power. I have NEVER ONCE in 23 years of serving the Lord ever done anything for money. I am not stupid. I fully understand that by not dealing with certain issues, just making people “feel good,” I would never have to worry about raising the little we need each month to operate, and could actually generate millions of dollars of surplus annually. AGAIN, IN 23 YEARS OF MINISTRY I HAVE NEVER REFUSED TO OBEY GOD BECAUSE DOING SO WOULD COST THE MINISTRY DONATIONS!!!

Almost 3 years after that election, God has once again vindicated my faith!!! First, few people will ever be able to comprehend the spiritual destruction having a 5th generation high priest of a satan worshipping cult as President, and the millions, tens of millions of souls worldwide, who would have ended up in hell as this aggressive satanic cult gained worldwide credibility. After 23 years on the front lines, trust me when I tell you the spiritual consequences to this nation would have been devastating and we would have NEVER recovered!

As for the Lord allowing the evil President Obama 4 more years of power. Look at how God has projected the nation! Since 2010 he has not been able to get any of his outlandish legislation passed into law as the Lord allowed the Republicans to take the House, and in 2014, added to that a Republican Senate. His ability to legally pass any meaningful legislation to advance his radical political agenda have been neutered, leaving him only able to push his ideology through Executive Orders. To date, ALL of his Executive Orders that have been in front of courts, including the Supreme Court numerous time, have been struck down!

MY FRIEND, THROUGH DIVINE INSPIRATION, OUR NATION WAS ESTABLISHED TO WITHSTAND THE DAMAGE OF A ROGUE PRESIDENT LIKE BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA AND STILL REMAIN STANDING. WHAT OUR NATION CANNOT WITHSTAND IS TURNING AWAY FROM GOD AND HIS TRUTH!!!

Here is the bottom line to the Obama presidency. His destructive government take-over of the health care industry through Obamacare may totally fall apart when the Supreme Court rules on a major part of the act in a few weeks. If they do or don’t, a new President in 2016 will have the ability to rework much of that legislation in order to revive and repair the healthcare needs of this nation. His immigration orders are DEAD and can’t go forward. The economy is still a mess as is our non-existent foreign policy, but again, a new President will have the ability to put forth new polices for both the economy and our involvement around the world.

As for the social issues facing our nation. The fact is gay marriage was going to happen with or without President Obama. Abortion has been the law of the land since 1973, and even a pro-life President like George W. Bush did NOTHING to alleviate that scourge on our nation. The strained race relations exacerbated by this President is another issue the next President will have the opportunity to work on fixing. All in all, other than being the first black President of the nation, history will not be kind to President Obama since in the end he will have accomplished NOTHING and his 8 yrs as President will end up being a total zero in the history books.

For the record, the social issues of our day like gay marriage, abortion, even race relations, are not issues for the President, though it is nice to have that support, but are issues for the church. It is the CHURCH who has failed this nation on these issues, and only the church can be the answer to seeing a change in those issues!

I say all of that to say this. God has given this nation an open door to repent and turn back to Him and His Truth! In His grace and mercy, He has given us the opportunity to be like the children of Nineveh and not the children of Israel!!! I believe a byproduct of the upheaval this nation has experienced over these past 7 years, is that we are ripe and ready for a true national revival! In turning away from God, from Biblical Truth as a nation, the people are realizing that there has to be a better way. Don’t forget, the better percentage of the past two generations have never even been to church. There is a mighty harvest of souls that is ripe and waiting!!!

I love you and care about you so much. Our time is very short. Our only hope as a nation is to turn back to God and His Truth. We have been under God’s judgment for several years now, and as each day passes that we don’t repent, it will only get more severe. In addition to the soul of this nation, the eternal souls of men are at stake. I believe in my heart we can see one more great revival in this land before we face final God’s judgment, and millions, tens of millions of souls can be saved. In the end, that has always been what Liveprayer is about..SOULS!

The Spirit has shown me that our window of opportunity God has blessed us with is very short and closing rapidly. It is only a matter of time before God unleashes His wrath and judgment on this once Godly nation for turning our backs on Him and worshipping every fasle god and idol man has created in his rebellious mind, for slaughtering 4,000 innocent babies every 24 hours, for our gross sexual perversions, and embracing every sin imaginable. However, there is coming a season of repentance and a mighty harvest of souls that will be won to faith in Christ as we turn back to the Almighty and His Truth!!!

The prophet Jeremiah said in 15:16, “When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart’s delight, for I bear your name, LORD God Almighty.”

GOD HAS TOLD ME, “THE GOOD NEWS I HAVE FOR YOU THIS DAY IS THAT MY PEOPLE IN THIS LAND I HAVE SO RICHLY BLESSED WILL RISE UP ONE LAST TIME. WHILE MY WRATH AND JUDGMENT IS BEING POURED OUT ON THIS WICKED NATION, MORE AND MORE EACH DAY, IT WILL BE UNDER THE WEIGHT OF THAT WRATH AND JUDGMENT THE PEOPLE WILL RESPOND LIKE THE PEOPLE OF NINEVEH. THEY WILL GET ON THEIR KNEES, PUT ON SACKCLOTH AND ASHES, REPENT OF THEIR SINS, AND TURN BACK TO THEIR CREATOR AND MY TRUTH! THERE WILL BE A SEASON WHEN MY WRATH AND JUDGMENT WILL CEASE AND A GREAT HARVEST OF SOULS WILL BE WON TO MY KINGDOM!” THUS SAYETH THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

How to Help Someone Who has Lost a Friend or Loved One

Leave a comment

(Luke 7:13)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, give me a passion for your Word. Give me a desire each day to read and consume your precious Word that really is a lamp unto my feet and a guide for my life. I pray each day that I can not just be a consumer of your Word, but a DOER of your Word. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

One of the questions I get daily here at Liveprayer is how to help someone who has lost a friend or loved one. When dealing with any issue, I try to first go to the Gospels and see how Jesus handled a similar situation in His life. There are several occasions when our Lord was confronted with death.

The Bible says that “he had compassion.” That gives us a roadmap. The first thing we can do for someone is simply show compassion. It is not so much what we say, but that we let them know we care. Just being there is often the best thing you can do. Of course, praying for them is critical, as is sharing with them that the only source of real comfort comes from God.

In these situations, we are often faced with the most difficult question of all, why did God allow this to happen? We obviously have no answer. There are never any good answers. The only thing that we can do is try and help them understand that God is in control, and although we may never know why something happened, it is a time to exercise our faith and trust God. Often, these can be great witnessing opportunities for those who are not saved. This is a time when many people are most open to the spiritual side of their life and are looking for meaning and purpose.

I have a personal belief after many years of ministry that one reason some people die when they do is because the Lord uses it to break through to a hardened heart and allow many to know His love. Just sharing with them that there is a Divine plan and purpose for each of us, and God loves us, can often be the comforting words someone needs to hear to help them. Ultimately, it is only God who can ease the pain and heartache a person goes through during this tragic time.

Unfortunately, there is no exact formula since everyone handles grief in a different way. Having compassion, praying, sharing the love of God are the three things that can at least be a comfort to someone in that position. I wish there were better words, more definite instruction that I could share with you to help you as you face these times in your life. Know this, God is the only source of true comfort there is. Prayer does work. Showing people the love of Christ in these difficult times can be one of the strongest witnesses you will ever give.

I will be praying for you today, that as you have the opportunity in your life to help someone through this difficult time, God will use you in a great and mighty way. It is at these times when we can really fulfill our purpose of serving Him, to allow Him to use us as an instrument of comfort to someone who is hurting. Don’t run from these opportunities, but be ready for them and embrace them.

I love you, I care about you, and I am looking forward to one day meeting each and every one of you in this life or in Heaven. Death is part of life, but for those who know Christ as their Savior, everlasting life with our Creator is our eternal destination. It will be a great day when we have a Liveprayer reunion in Glory and I get to meet each and every one of you who have made my life so special by allowing me to share our Lord with you each day!!! May you be richly blessed this day as we work together for His Kingdom!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller
