***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!

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: Even the cults are compromising their beliefs due to the pressure from this Godless culture! I have spoken much about the compromise in the church that has left well over 50% of our churches as “fake churches.” These are churches who have compromised the truth of the Bible for the lies of the lost culture they are part of. Well, now ever the cults are compromising their “beliefs” under press! ure from the
culture. Brigham Young University is the top college of the satanic Mormon cult. Like most “religious” colleges, they have an honor code their students are required to abide by. Just recently, BYU has removed a “ban on homosexual behavior” from its’ code of honor! Despite the teachings of the Mormon cult that homosexuality is an unacceptable choice of sexual relations, BYU has caved in to the pressure from the pro-LGBTQ activists who have been pushing the cult to accept this sexual perversion. Sadly, like many orthodox Christian colleges, churches, and institutions, they have!

“You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who ch! ooses to be a friend of the world
becomes an enemy of God.” James 4:4

I want to ask yourself a very simple and straightforward question, are you God’s friend or God’s enemy? There are only two possible answers to this question. You are either God’s friend or His enemy, you can’t be both. One of the most sobering passages in God’s Word is today’s anchor verse found in the 4th chapter of James, the 4th verse. You don’t need to be a Bible scholar or have any advanced theological degrees to understand this verse of Scripture. This very simple yet powerful truth clearly states that if you are a friend of the world, you are an enemy of God!

I realize that this word today is going to upset many, make most uncomfortable, but it is time you decide if you are God’s friend or not. You make that decision with every choice. All throughout the day we have to make choices. Each time we make a choice, we are choosing to be God’s friend or God’s enemy. When you make a choice in rebellion to God, you have become H! is enemy.
My friend, I don’t know if there is anything as horrible than to be an enemy of God. What person in their right mind would honestly want to be an enemy of God? Yet, every time we choose to rebel against Him, that is exactly what we become.

Let me tell you another way you become a friend of the world and an enemy of God. Listen carefully, since this is how most people become an enemy of God and they don’t even realize it. The Bible tells us in James 4:17, “Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.” This is known as the sin of omission. This is the sin most followers of Christ are guilty of.

The reason so many fall into this sin is simply because they don’t have the courage to take a stand for the Lord. They refuse to take a stand for the Lord in their personal life, they refuse to take a stand for the Lord with their family and friends, and they refuse to take a stand for the Lord where they work, go to school, recreate, and out in t! he
marketplace.

When you refuse to take a stand for Christ you have become a friend of the world and an enemy of God!!!

Do you think that is kind of harsh? Well, answer this question for me then. How come those who love the world and live in rebellion to God, His Truth, and Jesus Christ never seem to have a difficult time taking a stand for what they believe? Those who promote the sin of homosexuality certainly have no problem taking their stand. Those who promote the slaughtering of innocent babies certainly have no problem in taking their stand.

Those who produce and distribute pornography certainly have no problem in taking their stand. Those who destroy people’s lives with gambling certainly have no problem taking their stand. Those who promote the different cults and false religions and are leading people’s souls to eternal damnation certainly have no problem in taking their stand.

WHY IS IT THAT THOSE WHO OPPOSE GOD AND LIVE IN REBELLION TO GOD HA! VE NO
PROBLEM TAKING A STAND FOR WHAT THEY BELIEVE, YET CHRISTIANS, THOSE WHO CLAIM TO BE FOLLOWERS OF CHRIST, HAVE SUCH A DIFFICULT TIME TAKING A STAND FOR THE LORD???

Listen, I know that taking a stand for Christ in the year 2020 is not popular. The reality is it has NEVER been popular since we live in a world that has rejected our Lord! You are subjected to ridicule, scorn, hatred, you are called every horrible name in the book, and will be attacked, even physically. Who wants that? I sure don’t, I know you don’t, and I am certain even Jesus in His humanity didn’t.

However, Jesus was ridiculed, scorned, hated, called every name, attacked, even tortured and then crucified for taking His stand for God! You see, our Lord knew that you were either a friend of this world or a friend of God. You can’t be both. He chose to be a friend of God in the choices He made each and every day, and He chose to be a friend of God when it came time for Him to take his stand for God. He! is our
example and the one we are to emulate.

The reason a sin like homosexuality is now accepted in our culture is because those who support this sin refuse to back down, while the followers of Christ have chosen to be a friend of the world. The reason cults like Mormonism and Scientology are growing is because those who support these cults refuse to back down, while the followers of Christ have chosen to be a friend of the world.

The reason a false religion like Islam has over 1 billion followers around the world is because those who support this false religion refuse to back down, while the followers of Christ have chosen to be a friend of the world. The reason you have the blasphemous, anti-God trash on TV 24/7 is because those who run the TV networks refuse to back down, while the followers of Christ have chosen to be a friend of the world.

GOD SAID THAT A FRIEND OF THE WORLD IS HIS ENEMY!!!

I love you and care about you so much. What are you, a friend ! of this
world or a friend of God? You can’t be both. You have got to decide where your allegiance lies, and you don’t have the luxury of sitting back and doing nothing since that makes you a friend of the world and an enemy of God by default. Those who love this world are bold, fearless, and hold nothing back in promoting their Godless beliefs to the masses. The fact they receive little opposition or resistance only emboldens them in promoting their rebellion to God and His Truth.

I will be praying for you today. Praying that God will speak to your heart that if you are a friend of this world you are His enemy. You can become a friend of this world and God’s enemy by simply sitting back and doing nothing. While those around you who hate God are boldly taking their stand, if you are God’s friend you will take your stand for Him. If those who hate God are willing to lay everything they have on the line for sin, why can’t those who love God lay everything they have on the line for
righteousness?

I say to you today child of God, RISE UP! Today is the appointed day for you to once and for all decide whose friend you are. I say take your stand now for Christ. I pray today for God to give you a spirit of boldness, of fearlessness, of strength, of might, as you take your stand for Christ. May God watch over you and protect you as you go forth in your daily life proclaiming the Truth of God’s Word and that Jesus Christ is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. Let the world never doubt you are not its friend, you are a friend of God’s!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

DON’T NEGOTIATE WITH SATAN!!!

(Genesis 3:1-6)

***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: We speak often on the TV program about our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world. These are saints who go to church with the very real possibility of being arrested, beaten, put into prison, and even killed. In places like Burkina Faso, Nigeria, Muslim groups like Boko Haram literally walk into church services and slaughter the pastor and all of the congregants…including children! In the United States on Sunday morning, the choice for many Christians is to get up and go to church or hit the snooze alarm. ! We have
NO CLUE what real persecution is like, though I have long held we are closer than most think to finding out. Please be praying for our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ in places like China, North Korea, on the African continent, the Middle East, and everywhere in the world where they are being persecuted simply for being a follower of Jesus Christ!!!

DON’T NEGOTIATE WITH SATAN!!! One of the most stupid things we can do in his life is try to negotiate with or talk with satan! Now I realize many people doubt that there really is a satan, that he is some mythical character with horns, a red cape, and a pitchfork. Many think that “satan” is simply what we call the evil side of life! , something to blame all of
our pain and suffering on.

As in everything, rather than try to sort through who we think satan is, let’s go to the Bible which is our final authority in ALL matters! In Ezekiel chapter 28, we find out that the devil was at one time an angel, with access to the very throne room of God. Isaiah the prophet tells of his fall in chapter 14, after satan desired the very throne of God and is cast out of Heaven because of pride, taking along 1/3 of the angels who followed him.

A quick side note. Maybe now you can see why pride is so dangerous; it was the original sin in the universe. Satan is intelligent, has a memory, a will, emotions, and great organizational ability. OH, AND THE DEVIL HAS READ THE BIBLE!!!

Think about that. If your enemy has read the Bible, how much more do we have to? He is busy. He imitates God, perverts the Word of God, hinders the works of God’s servants, blinds men to the Truth, accuses Christians before God, tempts, afflicts, deceives, un! dermines
the sanctity of the home, and tries to disrupt the prayers of God’s people. Can you see why he is so dangerous?

However, let me clearly tell you that his powers are limited. He is NOT omnipresent. He cannot be in more than one place at a time. He is NOT omniscient. He does not know everything. He is NOT omnipotent. He is not all powerful. These are only attributes of God himself. Also, and hear this clearly, satan can DO NOTHING apart from God allowing it to happen as in the example of Job.

The good news is that he has already been defeated by Christ. God foretold of satan’s demise even as early as Genesis 3:15. Knowing that prophecy, satan and his demons must have been rejoicing as Christ took His last breath on the cross. However, their rejoicing turned to terror just 3 days later when Christ rose from the dead.

The resurrection of Jesus Christ sealed satan’s doom once and for all. The Bible tells us that his final destination is the Lake of Fire for ete! rnity.
That is why it is so sad to see people reject Christ. They are going to spend eternity in a place that was never created for man, but for satan and his fallen demons.

My prayer for you today is that you will recognize who your enemy is and stand in the midst of whatever he may try to throw at you. Satan’s final resting place will not occur until after the millennium, which is after the 7 year Tribulation, which happens after the Rapture. Until then, we still have to contend with satan and his hosts.

Satan claims authority over this world, which is why he is called the god of this world. He has the power to blind sinners to the truth, contends for the saints to destroy their lives of service and their testimony. He is a very real foe that we must contend with. That is why the Bible warns us to be self-controlled and alert, to submit to God and resist the devil..to stand firm in the faith.

Ephesians 6:11 tells us to “put on the whole armor of God so that you ! can take
your stand against the devil’s schemes.” Ephesians 4:27 says ” . . . do not give the devil a foothold.” Those who have put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ are protected by His blood. We do not have to live in fear, but in victory.

I love you and care about you so much! When Jesus was in the wilderness and satan came to tempt Him, Jesus didn’t try to negotiate with him or debate him. He simply stood on the Word of God. Stand on that word today that says “greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.”

The best way to deal with satan is not to negotiate with him, but by taking souls on the way to Hell, and reroute them to Heaven! Live in the victory that Jesus Christ has given us each and every day!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

(John 8:44)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, I pray today that You help me be a truthful person in my life each day. I know that YOU are truth and lies are from satan. Please give me the strength and the courage each day to be truthful in all of my dealings with everyone I interact with so that You are glorified. You are worthy of all praise, honor, and glory! In the name of Jesus…AMEN!!!

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: Are you sitting down? Did you know a river, a river, a real actual river, has rights and can sue! This is the latest creative legal maneuver by the radical environmentalist movement to try and block projects they disagree with from moving forward. The uber hypocrisy of these radicals is amazing when you understand the vast percentage of these same people are in 100% support of killing innocent babies. So think about this for a moment. They want a river to have legal rights, yet they want to deny any legal rights to an actual hum! an being.
This is the place we get to when we operate in complete rebellion to God’s Word. Absolute chaos and confusion, and we all know who the author of chaos and confusion is!

HACKED! Satan is nasty and always looking to cause trouble. On Tuesday night as I was planning on enjoying some birthday cake after the TV program finished, I got an emergency call from my head tech that some very creative hackers had breached our website. Please understand that the nation’s largest corporations, the US government, major banks, entities with incredibly sensitive national and corporate information are attacked and breached all of the time.

These organizations have the most sophisticated state of the ar! t security software costing
millions of dollars and some of the most experienced technical people on the planet. Despite that, they are often hacked into and breached by various nations and international groups whose sole existence is to try and steal such sensitive and classified information.

You also have armies of lower-end groups and individuals here in the United States and operating all over the world who are looking to break into people’s websites and data bases to cause mischief, sometimes for monetary gain and often just for bragging rights on the internet. Over 20+ years now, due to the uncompromised message from God’s Word, our longstanding visible and public presence, my appearances in the secular media on programs like Howard Stern and others, Liveprayer is a big target.

WE HAVE BEEN INCREDIBLY BLESSED! Liveprayer has been attacked dozens of times over the years. Our email data base for the Daily Devotional is housed on separate servers in several different locations and ! our credit
card donation system is housed at our credit card processor. They are the largest processor in the world and by God’s grace we have not had one issue since we began over 20 years ago.

The damage done in these hacks varies, but it is usually the wiping out of files and data bases of information. Of course we have them all backed up, but depending on the damage it is a painstaking process to reinstall everything and get it all back up and operational.

Each attack is a bit different, but they end up costing the ministry anywhere from $3,000-$10,000 when they occur, primarily from the labor costs we incur in getting everything back up and operational. As our finances are very tight each month, these are emergency expenses that we simply aren’t able to budget and have to deal with as they occur.

We have been blessed with a head technical person who has been part of God’s work here at Liveprayer since the very first months. He and his team over the years h! ave worked
endless hours for much less than what they could earn in secular organizations for their expertise as their service to the Lord.

OVERALL, GOD HAS WATCHED OVER AND PROTECTED US! WE HAVE ONLY BEEN DOWN LESS THAN 8 FULL DAYS IN THE 20 YEARS AND 6 MONTHS SINCE WE HAVE BEEN ONLINE. THAT IS A TOTAL OF 192 HOURS OUT OF 180,000 HOURS!!! THAT IS GOD AND SOME VERY GIFTED PEOPLE HE PUT IN PLACE HERE!!!

The website was down for about 2 hours very early Wednesday morning. Our tech teams we had to bring on board worked 20 straight hours to get everything back online and working properly. The only thing they could not get back online in time was the data bases for the TV program, so we aired a special salvation program Wednesday night and will be back LIVE Thursday night at our regular time, 11pm EDT.

We don’t have final numbers in yet, but it we are looking at between $4,000 and $5,000 from this hack and will be in prayer for a special gift to cover this emergency ! expense
since we are already behind in donations this short month. So I am praying for the Lord to move on one or two hearts of our friends who have been blessed and are able to help out with a special gift towards this emergency need.

I love and care about you so much. I refuse to allow satan to keep us from what God has called us to do, impacting lives for Christ 24/7/365 while bringing His Truth to the masses in order to lead this nation back to the Almighty and Biblical Truth!

God has always helped us, even in times of emergencies by moving on the hearts of friends like you because we have been faithful, have not backed down, compromised, or sold out the Truth for money, while walking each day these last 246 months by faith trusting Him alone!

Please help me with your prayers and your sacrifices as we help lead this nation back to God and His Truth!!! AMEN!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Kell! er

(Numbers 33:50-56)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, I know this is an evil and sin-filled world I live in. Please, protect me, but don’t let me be afraid. Let me be bold in declaring Your Truth to this lost world and not be afraid to speak up. Now more than ever I need Your strength to be the servant You have called me to be. Help me, strengthen me, and guide me to do Thy will. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: The destruction of another great American institution! Over the previous decade I have sadly spoken of the slow decline and ultimate destruction of the Boy Scouts. They finalized their destruction as they have filed for bankruptcy, with their only goal left not being how to build young men, but how to pay off the untold numbers who were sexually abused over the previous decades. God will often allow sins done in the dark to come into the light of day. The Boy Scout oath, “To do my duty to God and my country a! nd to obey
the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.” Scouting was founded as an organization that honored and obeyed God Almighty. It was a core of scouting. Like so many great churches, as they compromised that basic foundation of their existence, their destruction was inevitable. They followed the same failed road so many churches have followed, “culture trumps God,” and the Godless culture destroyed them! Despite all of the good they did over their 110 years of existence, the millions of lives they had such a positive impact on, their legacy will be one of a shamed organization that ultimately failed to uphold their own values and destroyed themselves along with untold thousands of boys and young men in their wake. A truly sad day for our nation as one more once great American institution created to instill Godly values in boys and young men is dead!

On the plains of Moab by the Jordan across from Jericho the LORD said to Moses, “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘When you cross the Jordan into Canaan, drive out all the inhabitants of the land before you. Destroy all their carved images and their cast idols, and demolish all their high places. Take possession of the land and settle in it, for I have given you the land to possess. Distribute the land by lot, according to your clans. To a larger group give a larger inheritance, and to a smaller group a smaller one. Whatever falls to them by lot will be theirs. Distribute it according to your ancestral tribes. ” ‘But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land, those you allow to remain will become barbs in your eyes and thorns in your sides.! They will give
you trouble in the land where you will live. And then I will do to you what I plan to do to them.'” – (Numbers 33:50-56)

God’s Word is full of His precious promises. They are the words we cling to in our time of need, knowing they are true. God’s Word is also full of His warnings. I want to share with you today that the warnings in the Bible are just as true as the promises. We often like to ignore or skip over the warnings, but they are there to alert us to danger, to protect us. Today, I want to share with you a warning from the Word today found in the 33rd Chapter of Numbers. It is a warning for YOU today to drive out the sin in your life!

This passage of Scripture is actually a command from God to the children of Israel. He commanded them to drive out the inhabitants from the Promised Land and to destroy all of their carved images, idols, and high places. Why? The children of Israel had just been in the wilderness for 40 years after leaving Egypt. They were
spiritually “weak.” God knew they were not strong enough to co-exist with the unGodly inhabitants in the land and commanded His children to “Drive them out.”

This is a good lesson for new Believers. A person who comes to the Lord must be discipled, be accountable to an older man or woman of the faith who can help guide them in their journey of faith. It is critical for a new Believer to read and study the Bible, pray, be part of a solid Bible preaching and teaching church where they can be spiritually fed, and to fellowship with other Believers who can help them to grow as a follower of Christ.

God also instructed them to destroy the carved images, the idols, and the high places. These all represented Israel’s past sins. God was telling the children of Israel that the things standing between them and God had to go. The same is true in your life. The Bible tells us that He is a “jealous God.” If you have a lust problem, destroy your pornographic magazines and tape! s. If you
have a problem with alcohol, pour the booze down the drain. if you have a problem dabbling in the occult, burn your Ouija board, tarot cards, and horoscope books. God has no desire to coexist with the sin in your life!

After the commandment God gives His children the warning. In Verse 55 God says, “But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land, those you allow to remain will become barbs in your eyes and thorns in your sides. They will give you trouble in the land where you will live.” He goes in in verse 56 to say, “And then I will do to you what I plan to do to them.” God was giving the children of Israel a clear warning about getting rid of the sin in their life. God is giving YOU that same warning today!

The question becomes, how bad do we want the sin out of our life?

When someone comes to me and asks me to pray for them to be delivered, I ask them point blank if they really want to be delivered. That may sound like a stupid question, but it ! really
isn’t. Do you know there are some people who really don’t want to be healed because it means their check each month will stop coming? Do you know there are drug addicts and alcoholics who really don’t want to be delivered because that would mean they could no longer get high or go out drinking?

Do you know I deal every day with people in bondage to gluttony, lust, smoking, gossiping, gambling, homosexuality, who deep down really don’t want God to deliver them because they love their sin so much. You may think I am being really insensitive, but let me ask you, how insensitive was it for Jesus to have to go and be nailed to the cross, bleed and die to break the bondage of drugs, to break the bondage of alcohol, to break the bondage of gluttony, lust, smoking, gossiping, gambling, homosexuality, and every other sin you can name?

God is warning you today to get rid of the sin in your life. Drive it out! The Bible says, “Resist the devil and he will flee from you!” Th! at
doesn’t mean you can invite him over once in a while and reminisce about old times! Resist means to have nothing to do this him. Period!

I love you and care about you so much. God has clearly commanded us in His Word to drive our the sin in our life and destroy anything that has to do with that sin. He warned us that if we don’t, our sin will be a constant problem in our life. The sad fact is, too many have learned how to co-exist with the sin in their life rather than drive it out once and for all. Their response is that if God wants to take that away He will. WRONG!!! God already took it away when He sent Jesus to die on the cross. SIN IS DEAD! It is only alive in you because you let it live!!!!

I tell you often, God can’t and won’t bless sin. God blesses righteousness! My word for you today is that it is time to get serious about the sin in your life. Heed the Word of God and drive it out once and for all and destroy everything to do with that sin. God wants t! o bless
you today, bless you above and beyond all you can ask or think. The choice is yours. Do you want your sin or do you want God? Heed this warning from God to you today and drive out your enemies!!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

It is my birthday, but I have a present for YOU today!!!

(Luke 4:18)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, Thank You for another day of life. Let me never get so caught up in just ‘getting through the day” I don’t appreciate each day for the gift from You it is! Bless this day, and allow me to use it in some small way for Your glory. Thank you for this life, and most of all, for my eternal relationship with You! In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: How to make sure you are not just living each day God grace’s you with, but making each day COUNT! Here is a simple but powerful challenge I have for you today, and the great thing is it is something each person can customize to their own life. I want you to take 10 minutes today, that is all, just 10 minutes. Pray for the Lord to open your heart and mind. Get a piece of paper and write down TODAY, ONE WEEK, ONE MONTH. Now, next to TODAY I want you to simply write in one thing, just one thing you want to accomplish before you go to! bed in
your spiritual life. IT IS TOTALLY UP TO YOU! Read one chapter from the Bible. Set aside 15 minutes to just pray and meditate on the Lord. Email someone a word of encouragement. Call someone you know who needs a kind word. Help a neighbor. The opportunities are endless and it is totally up to you and your life to make this decision. Next, write down one thing you want to accomplish over the next week in your spiritual life. Lastly, write down the one thing you want to accomplish over the next month in your spiritual life. Having these simple but clear goals for today, the next week, and the next month, keeps you focused on the fact that every day isn’t just another day of life, but a gift from God to use your life to grow spiritually in your personal life and be a blessing to God’s Kingdom! THIS IS TOO EASY TO NOT DO. IT IS NOT MEANT TO PUT ANY PRESSURE ON YOU, BUT TO HELP YOU STAY FOCUSED THAT EVERY DAY IS A GIFT FROM GOD AND TO MAKE SURE YOU USE SOME OF THAT GIFT FOR
HIM!!!

Today is a special day for me as I celebrate my 62nd birthday. I never forget that tomorrow is promised to none of us and that each day is a gift from God. So I am most grateful for the Lord blessing me with these years of life, and am even more grateful that He allows me the honor of waking up each morning to serve Him.

My hand is to the plough, I am not looking back, and am so excited each morning at what God is going to do in people’s lives that day. I look forward to sharing the Truth of God’s Word and the hope and love of Jesus Christ with the lost and hurting in the world until He says my work is over and calls me home.

It is normal on your birthday to receive presents.! You may get a new pair
of shoes, some clothes, a watch, maybe a nice dinner out, or even something as extravagant as a new car. However, even though it is my birthday, I have a present for YOU today. It is better than new shoes, or new clothes, or a shiny watch. It is even better than a new car. My present to you today will actually add YEARS TO YOUR LIFE!

You see, I really do love you and care about you. I am so thankful for you being part of my life and I want you to be around for many years to come should Jesus tarry in His return. Even though it is God who will have the last word when our life is over, we can make the free will choices to do things that can literally shorten our days. So today, my present to you is how to live as long as you possibly can to enjoy this life and be a productive servant of our Lord until the moment He calls you home.

Over the past 20+ years here at Liveprayer I have spoken many times on how our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit, and how we shou! ld do all
that we can to keep our temples in the best shape possible. I have spoken often about how it is our responsibility to be in the best physical shape possible to be able to serve God to our best ability for as long as we possibly can.

Less than 10% of those reading this today exercise regularly or even try to eat the right foods. OVER 90% OF THOSE READING THIS TODAY ARE OVERWEIGHT AND THOSE EXTRA POUNDS ARE SHORTENING YOUR LIFE!!! Today I am going to help you lose weight. MORE IMPORTANTLY, KEEP THE WEIGHT OFF without spending thousands on joining a health club, buying machines, or becoming a slave to the latest pills or juices that will cost you $50 a month and NEVER do what they promise.

There are two elements required to lose weight. First is exercise. You MUST be on a disciplined exercise plan and be faithful to that plan to burn the calories necessary, not to mention the positive effects it has on your heart and muscles. Second is what you eat. There is NO way ! to lose
weight, maintain your optimum weight, unless you are watching what you eat and drink. Sweets, soft drinks, alcohol, snack foods all have tons of calories that will put pounds on you.

If you are doing lots of exercise, you can get away with eating some things that are not the best for you to be eating, but you must be aware of all that you eat and drink. I hate to be over simplistic, but the fact is, if you are exercising regularly and watching what you eat, you can and WILL lose weight and MAINTAIN your ideal weight.

Please let me add this VERY IMPORTANT fact. Everyone has their own ideal weight. Genetics DO play a factor in this, and how God created our bodies is an issue. There are some people who simply will carry more weight than others. There is NOTHING wrong with being what some may consider overweight. Nobody can be the media’s definition of perfect, nor should we try. We have to use common sense and accept the fact that some people are simply created to c! arry more
weight than others. The key is, are you where YOU need to be at for YOUR body???

From the amount of emails that I get every day, I know that this is a major issue for many of you. Here is the secret. It is a battle like any other battle you fight in life. It is first a spiritual battle. The strength you get to stick to your exercise routine, to eat the right things each day, do NOT come from a pill or from yourself, IT HAS TO COME FROM GOD!!!

You need to take the time each morning and pray to God for the strength and diligence to stick to your exercise plan and what you eat. IN YOUR OWN STRENGTH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE! People fail in their sincere efforts in this area because they have left out the spiritual element to it.

FORGET THE $50 A MONTH PILL OR JUICE AND REPLACE IT WITH PRAYER! All that pill or juice does is remind you that this is a commitment that you have made. Period. Prayer will not only remind you, but strengthen you to stick to it and see
victory!!!

I love you and care about you so much and am grateful to be able to give you this present today! I will be praying for you that God will inspire you to take action in this area of your life. HE IS SPEAKING TO YOU ABOUT ADDING YEARS TO YOUR LIFE! You don’t need the latest pill or juice to lose weight.

You need to exercise, watch what you eat, and PRAY! That is the special element. God will give you the strength and motivation to get victory over this area of your life. He will help you. Like in all things, when we are serious and ask God to help us, HE WILL!!! You will not only lose the weight you desire, but keep it off as long as you are willing to exercise, watch what you eat, and pray about this daily!

Losing weight and maintaining a certain weight is like every other battle we face. We must have a battle plan that we work faithfully each day, and that plan must include accountability to others and God. We aren’t strong enough to get and maint! ain
victory on our own. We need to have others in our life to hold us accountable and to keep us where we need to be in our day-to-day actions. I realize that this is an issue with many who are reading this right now. Know today that there is hope, there is victory waiting for you!

Exercise, pay attention to what you eat, have people in your life who will hold you accountable to your exercise routine and what you eat, and pray daily for God to give you the strength and resolve to stick to the plan. IT WILL ADD YEARS TO YOUR LIFE! This is an important issue because the better you feel, the better shape you are in, the more fit you are, the better you will be able to serve and glorify God with your life for many years to come!

***If you would like to give me a great birthday present, pray about a gift of Liveprayer of $62 ($1 for each year), $620 ($10 for each year), or $6200 ($100 for each year)! There is nothing I desire more each day than to see souls saved, the Tru! th of
God’s Word heard in the marketplace, and to see this nation repent. YOUR love, prayers, and sacrificial support is what allows me to do all God has called me to do and I thank you as together we turn our nation back to the Almighty and His Truth!!!

In His love and service,

Should drug dealers be executed?

(Exodus 20:13)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, please be with those who are in bondage to drugs this day, as well as those in any type of bondage! Your Word says that you came to set the captives free. Please free those in bondage this day as they look to You for their chains that bind them to be loosed! You oh Lord have defeated EVERY FOE, and on this day, defeat that foe in my life, the lives of my family, and the lives of all who are looking for the victory only YOU can supply. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: What is wrong with Virginia? I am glad you asked that question, let me answer it. It is a state, who like our nation at large, has rejected Christ and HIS Truth! Just the other day in the Virginia state legislature, as the opening prayer was being pronounced, many of the Democrats stormed out of the chamber…IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PRAYER! What caused this intense reaction? The pastor offering up the p! rayer was
praying for the innocent unborn, was praying for God’s Holy Institution of Marriage between a man and a woman, and it was so offensive that as they stormed out of the chamber some were muttering about his prayer being a “sermon.” THE MINIONS OF SATAN FLEE IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD AND HIS WORD! This is a great lesson that God gave you the only offensive weapon you need to defeat satan, the SWORD…GOD’S HOLY WORD…THE BIBLE!!! USE IT!!!

“You shall not murder.” Exodus 20:13

Why not make death the penalty for drug dealers? Today is the first time I have ever used the weekly poll question for a Daily Devotional during the week the poll question was live. However, I truly believe t! his question is not only
legitimate, but can’t be simply ignored or sloughed off as barbaric, racist, something we don’t do, or any number of responses to fight back against the notion that we should execute drug dealers.

One reason for the blowback is that this conversation is being initiated by President Trump. To be honest, he could propose the cure for cancer and his political opponents would find arguments to fight him. Look at how the slavish mainstream media and many who oppose the President politically dealt with the death of the evil terrorist Soleimani. Many not only defended this evil person responsible for the killing and maiming of thousands of US soldiers and hundreds of thousands of other innocent people, but literally rebuked the President for taking him out!

Let me ask you a question. If someone walks into a 7-11, pulls a gun, and shoots the clerk in the head and kills him, would you agree there isn’t at least an argument that the person who perpetrated the murder! should face
the death penalty? Last year apx. 60,000 people in the United Stated died of a drug overdose. Each one of those people purchased the drugs that ultimately killed them from someone.

WHY IS THE PERSON SELLING DRUGS THAT KILL SOMEONE ANY LESS CULPABLE THAN THE PERSON WHO PULLS A GUN AND SHOOTS A 7-11 CLERK DEAD???

Over the past 20+ years I have sat with, consoled, and counseled families who lost a loved one to a drug overdose. YOU tell the mother or father of a dead son or daughter to drugs that the person who sold their child those drugs doesn’t deserve the same punishment ANY murderer should face. I am fully aware of the personal responsibility of the person who is using the drugs, and am in no way mitigating that fact.

However, think about this. You can make the case very easy and legitimately that many drug dealers are mass murders!

History knows the names of purely evil people like John Wayne Gacy, Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy, Jack the Ripper to! name a
few. History does NOT know the names of evil drug dealers who are responsible for the deaths of dozens, hundreds, even thousands of people who died due to the poison they sold them. I submit that very few people would argue that any of these evil men named above are worthy of being put to death.

WHY ARE THOSE WHO SELL DRUGS THAT KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE ANY LESS WORTHY OF BEING PUT TO DEATH FOR THEIR PREMEDITATED CRIMES?

Let me add one other fact most people aren’t aware of unless they are in, around, or part of the criminal justice system. Dealing drugs is NOT a non-violent crime. Please, let me say that again and hear me. DEALING DRUGS IS NOT A NON-VIOLENT CRIME!

To hear the bleeding heart liberals and media tell the story, you have people doing 20, 30, 40 years in prison for selling a few drugs, often to supply their own drug habit. They are just poor misunderstood addicts being unfairly treated by the criminal justice system. COW PIES!!!

Over 9! 5% of state
and federal cases are settle with a plea bargain. Here is the FACT about virtually EVERY PERSON in state and federal prison on drug charges. People who are doing lines of coke or meth, smoking a joint, are NOT in prison for 5, 10, 20 years or longer. That is pure propaganda. You don’t get a long prison sentence unless you are selling large amounts of drugs, and in most every case the plea bargain has resolved much more serious and violent charges!

In a typical plea bargain for someone selling drugs, here is what happens that the public never knows about. A drug dealer is caught and looking at 40, 50 years in prison. So they cooperate and tell the prosecutors everything they know about the drug ring they were part of. In return, they get a sentence of 5 years, 7 years, instead of the 40 or 50 they were looking at.

In that process, to get down to the 5-7 year sentence they drop the amount of drugs they were dealing, in almost every case there were firearms invo! lved and
those charges are dropped, and there are almost always victims that they are charged with hurting in some way and those charges are dropped. So when it is all finished, to the public it looks like some poor non-violent drug addict, often a minority, doing lots of years in jail due to his addiction.

THE REALITY IS, THESE ARE VIOLENT PEOPLE, INVOLVED IN A VERY VIOLENT WORLD, WHO HAVE HAD THE BULK OF THE SERIOUS CHARGES AGAINST THEM DROPPED IN THEIR PLEA AGREEMENT!

I love you and care about you so much. I will let you and most importantly the politicians fight over the issue of whether drug dealers should be executed. Of course like all criminal penalties, they serve a dual purpose. Most important is punishment. Never forget the first and foremost reason of the penalty for committing a crime is punishment. However, it does serve a secondary purpose and that is as a deterrent for others who are considering committing a similar crime.

You already have many m! ajor drug
dealers currently serving a life sentence for selling drugs. I would assume many who support the death penalty would not have an issue with those high level, high profile people being executed. This topic though is bringing in drug dealers in general, street level dealers, since it is the actual person who is selling people the drugs they die from who can be argued are no different than the person who kills a 7-11 clerk.

My gut is that there is ZERO political will for such action being taken. In today’s highly partisan political environment it probably won’t even receive a healthy debate. In the meantime, we will continue seeing 60,000 or so people dying each year due to the poison that has enslaved them, and their murderers will never be held accountable!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: Normalizing and mainstreaming sexual and family perversion! One of the latest names given to sexual and family perversion i! s “throuple.” A
throuple is 3 people, regardless the gender make-up of the three, living together as a “family” and of course involved with each other sexually. One of the few safe places left on the TV channel guide is Home and Garden TV. Well, not that safe. On the popular HGTV program “House Hunters,” the family featured looking for a home is a “throuple. I know, people will wonder why I am wasting this precious space talking about something virtually nobody will ever see, and those who do, won’t even give it a second thought. Therein lies the problem and exactly why I am talking about this. Those who push the sexual/marriage/family deviancy agenda ultimately want their portrayals of these perverted family units to be treated as normal and acceptable. They are quick to lash out to people like myself who dare to even call their agenda out as “haters” and “bigots.” They wear down their opposition to the point they have no fear pushing their perversion even on a harmless! program about house hunting
on HGTV!!!

I have a very practical word for you today since it deals with an issue we all struggle with. Every person reading this today has some unanswered prayer that you are waiting for God to answer. For some, it may be a prayer about finances, for others, it may be a prayer about healing, and for still others, it may be a prayer regarding your marriage. No matter what the specific need is, everyone who is reading these words today has something you are praying about and are waiting on God to answer.

The biggest mistake I see people make who are waiting on God for an answer is they start drifting away from God. When you are waiting on God to answer you, that is the time to press in to! God, not pull away
from God. But we humans are impatient. Especially in 2020 when we have our cell phones, FedEx, drive-thru food, and ways to get what we need done in minutes, we don’t want to wait even one second for ANYTHING. That includes having our prayers answered! So we get impatient when God doesn’t respond to our prayers like he is our personal concierge, our “gofer,” our assistant who we give our “to do” list to in the morning and expect it completed by 5.

This just in, God is the CREATOR, we are HIS CREATION! Does the clay tell the potter what to do? God in His infinite grace and mercy allows us to bring our petitions to Him, gives us unlimited access to His throne room to share our hearts’ desires, but that doesn’t mean God is obligated to answer our prayers the way we want or in the time we want. A thousand years is as a day to the Almighty. While waiting an hour, a day, a week, a month, even a year may seem like a LONG TIME to us, it is the blink of an eye in relationship to
eternity. The fact is, God is not bound by time/space as we are.

However, when God does not respond in our timing, we get mad at God. We blame whatever we are facing on God for not stepping in as we had requested. We stop reading the Word every day. We stop praying every day. We stop going to church. We start slowly drifting away from God and soon we get far enough away from Him that we become an easy target for satan.

We know, of course, satan is a liar, the father of lies. He lies to us that God really doesn’t love us or He would have answered our prayer by now. He lies to us that God has more important things to do than worry about our needs. He lies to us that we have sinned too much to be worthy of God answering our prayers. He lies to us that we are fools to believe God could answer our prayers even if He wanted to.

During this time we face the daily temptations life brings our way and in our weakened state we give in to the temptation. We end up havi! ng an
affair. We end up drinking. We end up gambling. We end up doing drugs. We end up being mean to our spouse and children. We end up making poor choices because we drifted from God and wake up one morning and find ourselves in real trouble.

It is at this point that we make our way back to the Lord. Like the prodigal son we humble ourselves and ask for forgiveness. We get back into our daily discipline of praying and reading the Word. We get back into church on a regular basis. We rekindle our close, daily, intimate relationship with the Lord. God is merciful as He not only forgives us and welcomes us back home, but He helps us to overcome the damage we have done during the time we were away.

Let me share with you today what you should be dong while you are waiting for God to answer you. You press in even closer to the Lord! While you are waiting for God to respond, you keep praying every day, pray even more. While you are waiting on God to respond, you keep reading ! the Word,
read even more. While you are waiting on God to respond, you keep going to church, go even more.

WHILE YOU ARE WAITING ON GOD TO RESPOND YOU CONTINUE TO BE ABOUT YOUR FATHER’S BUSINESS, SINCE, AS YOU ARE ABOUT HIS BUSINESS HE WILL BE ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS!!!

There is your priceless gem for the day. Read it again. Read it over and over. WHILE YOU ARE WAITING ON GOD TO RESPOND YOU CONTINUE TO BE ABOUT YOUR FATHER’S BUSINESS, SINCE, AS YOU ARE ABOUT HIS BUSINESS HE WILL BE ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS!

I love you and care about you so much. I know many of you today are living on life’s edge because you have great needs you have brought to God and are simply waiting on Him to respond. While satan will fill you with his lies, let me give you some TRUTH today. God loves you so much. God cares about you and everything that goes on in your life. God is your hope and rock in the good times and bad. God hears your cries. God is able to meet every need you will ever have in this! life.
God’s timing is not our timing, but God is never too early or too late.

I know how frustrated you are waiting for God to respond. The key to finding peace as you wait is to know that God knows you and your needs better than you do. Press in to the Lord during this time you are waiting. Be about Gods’ business. Keep serving Him faithfully. As you are obedient and faithful in your service, you will wake up one day and realize God has responded. It may not be the exact way you wanted, it may not be the exact answer you wanted, but God will respond.

I will be praying for you today. Praying for you to stay strong in the midst of whatever your battles may be. Praying for you to find God’s peace during your trials. Never forget that He loves you and cares about you so much and is with you always. He has not abandoned you, not forsaken you, but is with you each step of the way. Keep your eyes focused on the Lord, continue to be about His business, and know that in His pe! rfect
timing God will respond!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller
