(1 Corinthians 9:24; Galatians 5:7; Philippians 3:14; 2 Timothy 4:7,8)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, please help guide me through this day with your joy in my heart. Even though the day may have its ups and downs, the normal challenges of life, give me Your joy throughout every second today. No matter what my challenges I will praise You. No matter what my victories I will praise You. Help me to praise You in the valley and on the mountaintop and have Your joy in my heart at all times. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: Many people point to 1962 as the year when the spiritual decline in this nation began in earnest. A decline that clearly has left the United States in the year 2020 as a post-God, post-Christian nation! As Christians have prayed and worked tirelessly to fight the war on life, for the most part we have accepted that the banning of prayer in our public schools 60 years ago was a done deal. Well, jus! t as we
have seen more victories and real movement in the life area last year, we have some Christian leaders who have not given up on bringing prayer back to our schools and are taking advantage of a pro-Christian President and administration to push for yes, bringing prayer in our schools! In signing an Executive Order on religious liberty Thursday, it provides new guidance regarding prayer in public schools! It protect the rights of students to pray and discuss God in their schools and champions and reinforces the freedom of religion guaranteed to us in the Constitution as one of our most important rights! President Trump stated, “we will not allow anyone to push God from the public square, and won’t allow Christians to be bullied.” As I have stated many times, the best hope Christians can have for our political leaders is that they don’t actively work to hurt us, and if we have a season where we can actually get some help from our government, let’s take full advantage ! of it. It doesn’t
replace the work only we as Christian leaders can and must do, but should encourage us to work that much harder!!! AMEN!!!

This is a special time of year for football fans as the NFL season culminates in a few weeks with the Super Bowl. There is always something special for football fans about Championship Sunday that will culminate in this year’s Super Bowl. For the 3-31/2 hours a game lasts, the players are competing, using their God-given talents and abilities to try and help their team win. We are also just had the college football bowl games and National Championship last Monday with LSU defeating defending Clemson. As I’ve watched some of the games recently, I began thinking about anoth! er sports fan,
Paul.

Paul made several analogies between the Christian life and sports in his writings. Most had to do with the training an athlete undergoes in preparing to compete. This weekend I saw another analogy that I am sure Paul did as well. During the course of the game, these athletes are competing, using every bit of their talents and abilities to do the best they can. As the game goes on, some step up and perform heroically helping their team to win. IF AN ATHLETE CAN USE ALL OF HIS TALENTS AND ABILITIES TO WIN A GAME, HOW MUCH MORE SHOULD A CHILD OF GOD USE THEIR TALENTS AND ABILITIES TO SERVE OUR LORD?

Let me challenge you today my friend. If an athlete can go out and train, practice for endless hours perfecting their skills, go out on the day of a game and give everything they have to win a game that in light of eternity is meaningless, the child of God should train harder, practice harder, and never give less than everything we have since those people we reach ! for
Christ can escape everlasting separation from God and enjoy eternity with Him.

The performance of an athlete during a game may determine who wins and loses that particular game, but the performance of those who serve the Lord can determine if a person spends eternity with the Lord or is forever separated from Him. While what that athlete does may be important for that moment, what the servant of God does is important for all eternity!!!

I want you to understand today that what you do for the Lord has eternal significance. The way you live your life each day, sharing your faith in Christ with others, allowing God to work through you to bless someone else is greater than hitting a home run in the World Series or scoring the winning touchdown in the Super Bowl. Even though star athletes get paid millions of dollars for what they do on the field, the child of God is paid in things more precious than silver and gold for what they do for the Lord. You can’t put a pric! e on the
peace and joy only God can give you. You can’t put a price on God’s blessings.

God’s rewards for those who are faithful in serving Him are far greater than all the riches of this world!!!

I love you and care about you so much. I will be praying for you today to NEVER forget how important what you do for Christ each day really is. You may not be performing on prime time television, or be on ESPN, but nothing any athlete does in their sport can compare to what you do when you are serving the Lord. They are providing entertainment to those who they reach, you are providing the words of LIFE to those who you reach. Even though man looks at the athlete as a hero, God looks at those who serve Him as a hero.

The next time you are watching a sporting event, enjoy the special talents of those who are playing the game. But never forget God has given you special talents too. He has given every one of His children gifts and talents to serve Him with. Exercise your gift! s and use
your talents to share the hope and love of Christ with the lost and hurting in your life. There may not be a stadium full of people cheering as you faithfully serve our Lord, but there is an angelic host rooting you on and Jesus is on His throne waiting to welcome you into Glory when your race is finished!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: Gen Z is that demographic ages 7-22. For context, the Baby Boomers are 55-75 years of age, Gen X 40-54 years of age, and the Gen Y also known as Millennials are 25-39 years of age. There are now numerous articles popping up wondering why so many in the Gen Z demo are atheists? Anyone who watches the Liveprayer TV program or reads the Daily Devotional knows that answer. It is like the poor woman on the TV program “Family Feud” the other day who was asked what was Popeye’s favorite food and she excitedly yelled our “CHICKEN!” Of course, most know the favorite food of Popeye was spinach, just like those who are part of Liveprayer know that the reason so many in that ! Gen Z demo are
atheists is because THEY NEVER WENT TO CHURCH!!! To be honest, what would you expect them to be? The church and most Christian ministries simply preach to the choir, those already saved. Who preaches to Gen Z? SATAN!!!

The “knock-out” game. 6 years ago, the nation was sickened to learn of a new phenomenon popping up around the country, the “knock-out” game. It faded out of the news stream, but didn’t really go away. It has resurfaced as of late, even more vicious the before. Unlike 6 years ago, it is also targeting POLICE OFFICERS! A New York City officer the other day was blindsided as he was blindsided, being smashed in the face with a bicycle chain!!!

The “knock-out” game i! s currently something
primarily young black men are doing, usually in packs of 3 and up, where they come upon a lone man or woman and without any warning sucker punch them from behind in the face with the intent of knocking them out. While the perpetrator punches the unsuspecting target, those with him video tape the assault and post it on the internet.

In virtually all cases, they don’t rob the person, there is no sexual assault, it is simply a physical assault by young black youth on unsuspecting men and women who are walking alone. As this sick “game” never went away and has resurfaced in a big way, it now includes perpetrators who are white, Asian, and Hispanic. In addition to primarily white men and women who are were the targets, it is now open season on anyone walking alone no matter what their race.

The key element in this sick act of utter depravity is posting the video of the assault online. Websites like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and others where people can post the video! s should
take a zero tolerance to these videotaped assaults and immediately take the videos down, close the account they were posted on, and forward all information on the account to law enforcement. Law enforcement doesn’t have the resources to aggressively monitor all the various sites where these assaults are posted, but the websites who allow them to be posted do and MUST make it a high priority, since without that element the “knock-out” game will probably lose its’ regained popularity.

I shared with you in my special 2-part Daily Devotional last Friday and Saturday (1/10, 1/11) that the culture rot I talk about often is in full display! This is not complicated. The spiritual abyss this nation is in, the spiritual freefall we have seen the past 50 years, has infested every aspect of our culture. I am numb, disappointed, and disgusted. There is no excuse other than the fact this nation is so far from God and Biblical Truth that nothing is immune from the spiritual decay w! e are
seeing with our very eyes each day.

Here is the most accurate description of our world today I have EVER read found in Romans 1:21-32, “For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. Therefore, God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator–who is forever praised. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed
indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.”

I especially like the line in Verse 25, “They exchanged the truth of God for a lie.” If that doesn’t describe our culture today perfectly, I don’t know what does. Satan, the great perverter, has told the lie enough times that ! people
have now accepted the lie as the truth, and rejected the truth as a lie exactly as God said they would.

The Bible clearly teaches that NO MAN, only God knows the hour of Christ’s return. But make no mistake, this is NOT a Hollywood movie, it is a very real event that will take place. One thing is certain, when Christ returns whatever final events that must take place will quickly unfold and this world as we know it will no longer exist. Even though only God knows the exact moment Christ will return, the Bible clearly tells us what the last days prior to His return will be like. My friend, you do not have to have a Doctorate in Theology to read God’s Word and know that without a doubt, WE ARE IN THE LAST DAYS.

In Paul’s second letter to his young disciple Timothy, in Chapter 3 Verses 1-5, he describes the last days. “But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobed! ient to
their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God — having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.”

Peter also shared the signs of the last days in 2 Peter 3:3, “First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.” Peter and Paul could have been writers for the USA Today commenting on the state of our world in the year 2020 with their words.

Jesus commented as well on the signs of the last days in Matthew chapter 24. His disciples asked Him point blank what will be the sign of His return and the end of the age. Jesus answered in Verses 4-14, “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, “I am the Christ,” and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see t! o it that
you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”

You see my friend, this is why those who know Christ as their Savior have to be busy about the work of the Kingdom. We are clearly in the last days, the night is coming and we must work while it is still light. The imminent return of ! Jesus
Christ is a message you will not hear in the church very often because too many pastors either don’t believe He is coming back, or they have lost sight of how soon it will happen.

God’s people need to not only be ready themselves for Christ’s return, but must be busy sharing this Good News with the lost and dying world that we live in. The Bible tells us it is only God’s patience that is keeping the last chapter from being written because it is His desire that none perish and ALL come to repentance.

I love you and care about you so much. I will be praying for you to take some time today and PRAY over these words. It is no accident or coincidence that you are reading this today, God is speaking to you. For those who have never made a commitment of your heart and life to Jesus Christ by faith, the Bible says that TODAY is the day of salvation. Take a moment right now, pray and ask God to open your heart and go to the following link and read the words there:
https://liveprayer.com/salvation.cfm

For those who know Christ as your Savior, this is a wake-up call from God that the time is short and you need to be giving all you have each day in serving Christ. Serving Him is not an option but a requirement of ALL His children. God calls most to serve Him right where they are at, in your neighborhood, at school, on the job, where you recreate, in the various hobbies you have.

Each day the Lord brings people into your life who will never go to church, never read a Bible, or never watch Christian media. You are the only connection to God they have. God has put them into your life so that you can share with them the hope and love of Christ. Never forget, when your life is over the ONLY thing that will matter for eternity are those lives you impacted for Christ.

Based on what God’s Word tells us about the last days, you can hear the trumpeter in the back room warming up. Christ came to this earth the first time unannounc! ed to the
world, born in a lowly manger in an obscure village. However, He is preparing for a triumphant return at any moment that the entire world will witness as He comes back “with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God.”

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

What will happen in 2020! (Part Two of Two)

Leave a comment

(Jeremiah 29:11)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, as this new year unfolds, help us to never forget that tomorrow is promised to none of us. Each day is truly a gift from You! Let us focus each day on the special gift that day is and not take even ONE DAY for granted, since it is a day like none other and once it is over will never come back. During each day You bless us with Lord, let us make sure to focus on making our life count for You in some way. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!!!

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: Grinder is a gay dating app where men who choose to engage in perverted sex with other men use this technology to meet for the sole purpose of having sex. In many cases they have no idea who the other person is other than a “name.” Recently in Michigan, two men hooked up for anonymous sex and in the end, one decided to kill his “date” and proceeded to eat his genitals. In past years, this would have been a huge media story ! if for no other
reason than the sensationalism of it. NOT IN 2020! Why? The media wants to protect those who choose to engage in such sexual perversions despite the public safety such sexual hook-ups are no matter if you are a man or a woman. The reality is, such sexual deviancy and perversion is fairly common in our culture today, yes even when it ends up in death, and people just aren’t as interested. WE ARE EVEN NUMB TO SEXUAL DEVIANCY INVOLVING DEATH AND CANNIBALISM! I am not sharing this with you this morning to shock you, but to help you understand how far into the cultural gutter we have sunk!!!

What will happen in 2020! (Part Two of Two)

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith ! the LORD, thoughts of
peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” Jeremiah 29:11

As we are in the opening days of 2020, I wanted to take time today to share with you my thoughts on what this new year may have in store for us. I AM NOT CLAIMING ANY PROPHETIC UTTERANCES! Dealing with a worldwide audience literally every day for over 20 years now, I do have a very good feel for what is going on in our world, our nation, in every aspect of life, and what it means in the context of our faith.

There is no exact order of what I am sharing with you, and I am not going into great depth at this time since these are all things that I expect to be happening over the course of 2020. I am certain as key issues rise in importance, I will dedicate entire Daily Devotionals to that issue and go in much more depth at that time.

Please pray over these words and keep them throughout the year to see what things are actually happening, what things are still to unfold, and no doubt som! e issues
that I didn’t address at all.

-Church: As 2020 unfolds, in the United States we will see a further rise of the “fake church” I have spoken about during 2019. These are churches who claim to be the true followers of Jesus Christ, yet operate in complete rebellion to our Lord and His Word! We saw what is in store as during the final days of 2019 we got word of the split in the once great United Methodist Church over gay marriage and the sin of homosexuality. The good news in 2020 is that those churches who truly are following the example of a New Testament church, those faithful congregations will flourish as people become even more hungry for real hope, real truth, and real answers!!!

-Evangelism: Unfortunately, evangelism will continue to be far, far down on the list of priorities in most churches. ALL churches and ministries declare their desire to “save the lost.” However, saying it and using their various resources to only reach out to people who are! already Christians
tells the story of their lack of commitment to evangelism!

-Persecution: In a culture that continues to spiral downward spiritually, there will be more and more persecution, and more and more persecution involving actual violence against Christians. We will still be nowhere near what our brothers and sisters in Christ in other parts of the world face, but I believe persecution will be good for the US church. It will force people who are playing games to flee, and embolden those who are true followers of our Lord!

-Worldwide church: Three words, growth, darkness, and persecution. The church is growing in South America, Africa, various Asian countries, and Iran of all places! Amen! The darkness in Europe continues, though there are some cracks of light in places like Hungary. I also believe with the election of Boris Johnson and Brexit finally happening, England may begin to see a spiritual renewal. Sadly, the real persecution of Christians in several Muslim dom! inant
countries in Africa and Asia, North Korean, India, and China continues to be even worse during 2020.

-Culture: The overall theme of our culture in 2020 will be a further entrenchment of the God-denying, Christian-hating majority who will continue to work to silence, marginalize, and hopefully destroy Christians. The culture will continue to push its’ Godless agenda including the continued normalizing of sexual deviancy. Look for every type of perverted “marriage” to explode in 2020 and a deepening acceptance of pedophilia. It will be in that deepening darkness that followers of Christ will have the opportunity to shine our lights bright for the Lord. OUR LIGHT SHINES THE BRIGHTEST IN THE DARKNESS!!!

-Culture of death: While we are seeing real meaningful victories and actual measured movement in the area of abortion as Roe turns 47 this month, we will be seeing the expanded movement to take life at the other end of the spectrum. Doctor assisted suicide and ! euthanasia will
explode throughout the nation in 2020 as killing old people will become much more palatable and accepted as the months of 2020 go by.

-Unprecedented filth and crime: What began in 2019 that shocked people, will become more normative in 2020. Major cities and towns across the nation will continue to accept the incredible rise in the homeless population and the public health issues it represents. We will also be seeing across the nation a relaxing in prosecuting crimes such as drugs, prostitution, theft, and other “low level” offenses. There will also continue to be a push to do away with cash bonds, letting people charged with crimes back on the street instead of being held pending trial if they can’t secure their court appearance and minimize the threat they may pose to the community with a bond. There will also be a continued move to let people out of prison early. ALL of these “criminal justice reforms” will do nothing but make our communities less safe for! the
citizens.

-Suicide and drug overdose: A byproduct of a Godless culture is hopelessness. Hopelessness is the driver to addictions of all kinds and ultimately suicide. Unfortunately, the manifestation of our Godless society in 2020 will be the continued epidemic of deaths by drug overdoses and other forms of suicide!

-Mental Health: I still claim as I have for 2 decades that the number one non-faith cultural issue in the United States is the absolute lack of a legitimate mental health infrastructure. I am very sad to say with virtual certainty that the issues which destroyed what infrastructure we had starting in the ‘60s still exist, and yet another year will pass with ZERO done to address this most critical cultural problem!

I love and care about you so much! Sadly, despite a roaring economy and a mature, advanced society, raw violence will be seen throughout the United States in 2020. We will be witnessing the manifestations of the spiritual decline tha! t has
occurred over the last 50 years. Evil will always rise up to occupy the space goodness once did!

REMEMBER, OUR LIGHT SHINES THE BRIGHTEST IN THE DARKNESS!!!

Never forget my friend, the Bible tells us Jesus is coming back in the “twinkling of an eye!” We often forget or simply don’t really believe this Biblical Truth. So, while only God knows the exact hour and minute, we are commanded to be prepared. While so much that will happen during 2020 is beyond our ability to control, our personal relationship with the Lord is 100% within our power!!! AMEN!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

We don’t have a gun problem in this nation, we have a spiritual problem!!!

(Mark 12:31)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Lord, even though we have no right to ask, please continue to watch over this nation. Thank You for showing us the clear signs of destruction our sin and rebellion have heaped upon our land. I pray today that as a nation we will turn back to You and Your Truth. Give me strength as days of persecution are upon us, and let me stand proud and strong for You and Your Kingdom. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

***THE LIVEPRAYER CHURCH!!! Haven’t been to church yet this week? Join me for this week’s service at the LivePrayer Church.

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: 2019 was the “year of life!” As I have kept you updated throughout the year, in the 47 years since Roe vs. Wade, 2019 was the most dramatic! year ever for the
pro-life movement. Hundreds of abortion clinics shuttered. An actual DECLINE in the number of babies that were murdered. Many states getting aggressive in passing laws to restrict the number of abortions. For the first time ever, the Trump administration clawed back $60 million of the $550 million taxpayer dollars that go to Planned Parenthood each year. No doubt with the addition of 2 new conservative pro-life justices on the Supreme Court and the environment created by President Trump openly talking about the issue of life more than any other President, has given the pro-life movement and incredible charge of energy and confidence. Let us pray that during the year 2020 even fewer babies are murdered, and that we move closer to becoming a nation where sacrificing innocent babies on the altar of molech will no longer be practiced!!!

“The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:31

Gun control and the Bible. You don’t get very far into the Book of Genesis until you see the first act of violence as Cain kills his brother Abel. Since that first act of evil, human history has been fraught with man’s violence against other men. Every type of weapon man has dreamed up in his imagination has been used to kill. The first firearms were invented in China in the 12th century. With the current heated debate in this nation over guns, I wanted to look at this issue in a way you won’t hear in the news, from a Biblical perspective.

First, the 2nd Amendment of our Constitution gives us the right to bear arms, so unless that Amendment is repealed confiscating guns is not even an option. New laws aren’t the answer either s! ince the largest
percentage of gun crimes are committed by people who don’t obey the laws to begin with. The reality is, there are exhaustive laws already on the books regarding guns, they just aren’t being enforced.

The mass shootings over the past decade that have received all of the headlines, have all been perpetrated by people with mental illness. The only logical actions that should be considered are doing a better job of identifying people who are suffering from some form of mental illness, getting them the treatment they need, and put into place a way to track those who are most likely to become violent.

Sadly, in the end this is a large country with 330 million people. To enjoy the incredible freedoms we have, it creates an atmosphere for someone who is mentally disturbed to be able to randomly attack innocent people. There simply is not any sort of plan that is going to prevent that from happening from time to time.

THAT MY FRIEND…is why the spiritual state of t! his
nation is so critical. That isn’t going to stop random acts of violence, but it will create an entirely different atmosphere than what we are living with today. We would “do unto others as we would have them do unto us.” We would “love our neighbors as ourselves.” We would reject the violence that is glorified in the movies, TV, and video games. Instead of treating life like it has no value, we would embrace life as the special gift from God that it is!

I love you and care about you so much. Only true revival can change the spiritual state of our nation, thus changing the environment that exists today which fosters random acts of violence. While the more spectacular acts make the news, every day in large cities and small towns, innocent people are attacked, hurt, and killed. We have become experts in how to commit violent acts against each other.

This is also responsible for a society today that actually embraces and cheers for the 4,000 innocent babies that are
slaughtered every 24 hours. It is such a part of our culture, most people never even give it a thought. In this nation where a culture of death flourishes, the next segment of our society to be put to death will be the elderly. Grandma is going to die soon anyway, put her out of her misery now and save the expense of keeping her alive any longer!

We don’t have a gun problem in this nation, we have a spiritual problem. If every gun was confiscated and destroyed, we would find whatever was handy to commit acts of violence. The only real answer to the violence in our culture is to turn our hearts to God and start living our lives by HIS laws. Our society will never obey the laws of man unless we first obey the laws of God!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

(Revelation 3:16-17, 1 Timothy 4:1-2)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Lord, Thank You for meeting my daily needs as You have promised in Your Word. I look to You and You alone for my sustenance through life, and Thank You for Your faithfulness. Please help me to be a good steward of the funds You entrust into my care during this life, and give me favor in my finances, and wisdom in my decisions. In the name of Jesus I pray. AMEN!

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: A Bishop in the Church of England made a completely false statement recently that sadly rings true in too many churches in this country. He incorrectly stated, “the culture trumps the Bible!” Jesus tells us in the Gospels that WE are the “salt” and “light.” The church is supposed to affect the culture it is part of. The reality is, in 2020 it is the culture that is affecting the church. That has never been demonstrated more clearly than with the rise of the “fake church” I have spoken ! about on the TV program
many times in 2019. The “fake church” is the subject of the Daily Devotional today! I think that over 50% of our supposed Christian churches are now part of the “fake church,” churches who operate in rebellion to the Truth of God’s Word. These churches have risen up as real examples of how the Church of England Bishop falsely stated that the culture trumps the Bible. My friend, The Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of God, representing Absolute Truth, and it is our FINAL AUTHORITY IN ALL MATTERS!!! THE TRUTH OF THE BIBLE TRUMPS THE LIES OF THE CULTURE!!!

So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. Because you say, “I am rich, have! become wealthy, and have need of
nothing”—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— Revelation 3:16-17

The “fake church!” 50 years ago, you could walk into virtually any Christian church of any denomination and sing most of the same hymns, pray in the name of Jesus, hear Scripture from the Old and New Testament, a theologically correct sermon, and usually at the end an invitation for non-Believers to make a decision to accept Jesus Christ into your heart and life by faith.

That is NOT the case in 2020. Sadly, FAR FROM IT! Due to the rebellion that infested all of society starting in the mid-60s, along with most major denominations requiring seminary degrees for their pastors, the real start of the apostate church began. Seminaries became more liberal, often denying the very inspiration and inerrancy of Scripture. Of course, once you do that it no longer represents Absolute Truth nor is it our final authority in all matters. It simply become a book of good ! ideas that you
might want to incorporate into your life.

After 5 decades, it is now dangerous to even call a church a church in the Biblical sense. The fastest growing “denomination” is the Metropolitan Community Church. This is a nationwide group of churches where the pastors, men and women, openly, proud and unrepentantly engage in perverted sex with people of the same sex. The majority of the congregations are also men and women in the bondage to same-sex perversions. One of the fastest growing “churches” across the United States today are “churches” that worship satan. This is not a joke, but people who seriously and literally worship satan!

Of course these are horrible extreme examples of some of the churches today. They are a bit obvious. However, what makes up most of the “fake church” in today’s culture, well over 50% of churches proclaiming to be Christian and associated with mainline denominations, are churches where sin such as homosexuality is acce! pted as a wonderful
lifestyle, gay marriage is supported since it is legal, abortion is not murder but a choice a woman has the right to make.

In these churches, sin is rarely spoken of, only good works. Hell is either never mentioned or often spoken of as not a place that really exists. God’s love, mercy, grace, patience, and kindness are extolled, while never mentioning His wrath or judgement. The Bible is used for certain verses, but you are more likely to hear words from other books in most messages.

THERE WILL NOT BE AN INVITATION TO BECOME BORN AGAIN, SINCE THAT WOULD REQUIRE A CONVERSATION ABOUT SIN AND HELL!

This is why I rage about gutless motivational/prosperity/ear-tickling “pastors” who actually brag about not talking of sin or things that might upset people. A recent poll of pastors stated that over 65% refused to talk about controversial issues since it would always bring down the amount of the offering.

IS IT ANY WONDER WHY OVER 50% OF THE CHURCHES T! ODAY ARE ‘FAKE
CHURCHES???”

Most of these churches are made up of a group of people in our nation who call themselves the “religious left.” Fifty years ago, this group didn’t even exist. They have actually evolved and grown tremendously over the past decade. The “religious left” is made up of people who identify themselves as Christians and hold strong religious beliefs as well as sharing left-wing ideals.

Obviously, this group has risen up in opposition to those who have been tagged the “religious right” or the “Christian right.” The “Christian right” is that group of Bible-believing Christians who are politically active and seek to elect to office those candidates who hold to Biblical values on the key spiritual issues of our day that are also political issues.

These would be issues like abortion and life related matters, gay marriage, family issues, the proliferation of the pornography industry, and the drive to remove God from the public square. Those in the “religi! ous left”
actually take an anti-Biblical position on these issues and are also heavily involved in the ecumenical movement, environmental issues, opposing war for any reason, world hunger, and social issues like healthcare, immigration, welfare, and education.

There is nothing wrong with pursing these noble social issues, Believers should be more involved on those fronts. The problem with this group is their anti-Biblical position on the key spiritual issues of our day and their involvement in these ecumenical movements that require you to set aside the Absolute Truths of the Bible.

Like my dear mother used to tell me, talk is cheap. I can’t know a person’s heart with regard to salvation, that is something only God can know. However, I have every right to judge people on their words and actions in accordance with God’s Word.

How can you say you are a person of faith, yet vote to support the legalized slaughter of over 4,000 innocent babies every day? How can you ! say you are a
person of faith, yet vote to redefine God’s Holy Institution of Marriage? How can you say you are a person of faith, yet support special rights for people who have chosen to engage in perverted sex acts God calls an abomination, a sin, including their ability to adopt children into their deviant lifestyle?

I guess the real question becomes, what is the faith of those in the religious left really in? It is inconsistent to say you are person of faith yet continually take a stand in complete opposition to God’s Word. Jesus said that if you love Me, you will obey Me. That means His Word. Of course, those in the “religious left” has been born out of the liberal “churches” of our day who make a mockery of Christ as they operate in open rebellion to the Truth of the Bible while claiming to be followers of Christ.

I love you and care about you so much. You can no longer just go to a church and assume it is a Bible-teaching, believing Christian church. THE “FAKE CHURCH IS GROWING
EVERY MONTH! It is beyond me how a person can consider themselves a Christian, which means they are a follower of Christ and automatically a follower of His Word, yet take a public position in complete opposition to that Word. You better wake up, since these people make up the largest growing segment of Christendom, this apostate group who call themselves Christians but go to “fake churches” that operate in complete rebellion to Christ and the Bible!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller
