GOOD FRIDAY!!!

(John 3:16, 14:6)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Lord, USE ME in these perilous, last days, as a messenger of Your hope in Jesus. Father, make me aware of the people You have put in my life each day, many who will die and burn in hell for all eternity for rejecting Christ, and use me as a vessel of Your love and hope. I thank You for sending Jesus to die for my sins that I might know the free gift of everlasting life, and I ask today that You help me to lead others to that wonderful eternal relationship with Christ. For it is in HIS name I pray…AMEN!

Today is the day that we celebrate one of the greatest events in human history, the death of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on the cross!!! Today is truly a day of rejoicing. Because of the sacrifice Jesus made, giving His very life as the one-time perfect sacrifice for the sins of all mankind, we can be forgiven of our sins and reunited with our Lord for eternity.

So much of what I deal with eac! h day in
this Devotional is to help you walk through this short journey here on earth victoriously while allowing God to use your life for His glory. However, we must never forget that this journey is very short and there is an eternity waiting for us when this life is completed.

I want to focus for a few minutes on this most sacred day to that split second when our life on this earth is finished and we are launched into eternity. Do you have the assurance this very moment that when you take your last breath that you will spend eternity in Heaven?

If the answer to that question is anything but a resounding YES, then let me just share this simple truth with you. You see, our God, our Creator so loved this world, so loved His creation, that He sent His Son, His only Son to be part of this world. Jesus had one mission in this life. It wasn’t to be a great teacher, though He was a great teacher. It wasn’t to be a great prophet, though He was a great prophet. It wasn’t to be a! great
miracle worker, though He did work many great miracles.

No my friend, Jesus came to this world to perform only one job…to die!!!

You see, the reason it was vital for Jesus to be immaculately conceived and born of a virgin was so that He was not infested with the same problem you and I are born into this life with, sin. Otherwise, the best He could have done was to die for His own sins. Jesus lived on this earth for some 33 years before it was time to complete His work. That work was finished on a hill called Calvary and a cross where He hung, and then died as the perfect one-time sacrifice for the sins of this world.

That is why whosoever believes in Jesus shall not perish, but is promised everlasting life!!!

Putting our faith in Jesus is the only way to be saved because it was only Jesus who died for our sins. There are no other ways to be saved, no other roads to God, there are no other plans of salvation!!! This is God’s one and only plan to re! concile
His fallen creation back to Himself. This is the only way that you can escape eternity apart from the God who created you in His own image. It is through His grace and by your faith in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8,9)!!!

There are many incredible mysteries in the Bible. There are many doctrinal issues that will never be fully understood until we reach Glory. But God made the most important decision of this life very easy and simple to understand. He gave every person on earth the very same opportunity to have their sins washed away and be assured of an eternity in Heaven. That is why we put our faith and trust in Jesus Christ and why we celebrate Good Friday today.

The most important decision you will make in this life is not who you will marry, or where you will live, or what kind of job you will have. The most important decision you will make in this life is to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior by faith. If you have not done that yet, the Bible! says
that TODAY is the day of salvation.

I would invite you to go t: https://liveprayer.com/salvation.cfm Pray to ask God to open your heart, read the words, pray the prayer, and accept today God’s gift to you this Easter season the gift of everlasting life through His son Jesus.

I love you and care about you deeply. For those of you who already know Christ as your Savior, I would encourage you to forward this email to someone that you know who is lost and without hope this Easter. What better gift to give someone than the opportunity to know Jesus as their Savior and God’s free gift of everlasting life when this journey through life is over. I pray that you will take time today to focus on what Jesus did on that cross some 2,000 years ago.

Because of His obedience our sins can be forgiven and we can have everlasting life!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend, brother, and co-laborer in Christ,

Jesus…or Barabbas???

Leave a comment

(Mark 6:6-15, Romans 11:2-5)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Lord, help me to not be like the people who called for Barabbas. Give me the strength to live my life for You today. The greatest way I can show my love for You, the greatest way I can call for JESUS and not Barabbas, is to live my life for You this day. May my thoughts, words, and deeds be pleasing and acceptable to You! In the name of Jesus…AMEN!

Did you know that the masses are still calling for Barabbas over Jesus today? As we enjoy the Easter season, we read some of those great passages in the Bible about the events of what we now call Palm Sunday through the death, burial, and resurrection of our Savior Jesus. One of the events that took place soon after Jesus was seized by the Romans was Pilate allowing the masses to vote for either Jesus or a criminal named Barabbas to be released as was custom during the Passover.

Pilate felt certain the people would ask for Jesus to be releas! ed, thus
allowing him to escape being used by the Jewish religious leaders to put Jesus to death. After all, the crime Jesus was guilty of was stating that He was God, a non-violent theological debate that he really wanted no part of. Barabbas on the other hand was a violent revolutionary working to overthrow Rome. However, when Pilate gave the people their choice, Jesus or Barabbas, they cried out for Barabbas!

My friend, whether you understand this or not, the people today are still crying out for Barabbas. They have rejected Christ, His Truth, and in open rebellion to Almighty God are calling for sin so they can live in opposition to God and His Truth. Our society today has chosen to promote the agenda of satan while rejecting Christ and the Truth of God’s Word.

I can’t even begin to tell you how heavy my heart has been about this nation, the world we live in, and so many people dying every day and spending eternity in hell. The fact is, this nation and world could be ! looking
forward each day to God’s blessings, instead of awaiting His soon coming wrath and judgment.

So many people die each day and end up in hell, when many of them would have accepted Jesus as their Savior and been spending eternity in Heaven if someone had only told them how to be saved. I have spent much of the past 20 years on my face before the Lord, asking for His guidance in fulfilling the ultimate plan and purpose for His work here at Liveprayer!

In the Bible, we read about the REMNANT. No matter how evil and wicked the children of Israel became, God always had a remnant of the faithful who refused to bow their knee to Baal. Throughout the ages, God has always had a remnant. Despite the spiritual freefall this nation is in due to its’ gross sin and wickedness, God still has a remnant today who refuses to bow down to the false gods and idols of this world, and have remained faithful to the Lord.

In the Bible we read about the religious institutions that be! came
corrupt, mostly because of money. They had become part of the spiritually bankrupt culture due to compromise and worldly motivations, as their leaders lived a life of luxury off of the sacrifice of the people they were supposed to be guiding spiritually. Isn’t it amazing that in the year 2019 nothing has really changed?

Most mainline denominations have bought into the perverted liberal theology of the day that accepts many sins and opposes Biblical Truth. They have embraced ecumenicalism, laying aside the absolutes of the Bible to fellowship with the cults and false religions of the world.

Other churches have bought into the man-made marketing plans of our day like the seeker movement, the purpose driven church, the emerging church, and the prosperity gospel. So-called Christian leaders sell out the Gospel for their own benefits. Many preachers think they are celebrities and use the sacrifices of the people they minister to enabling them to live like the ruler of! a small
nation.

Is it any wonder why our nation is in spiritual freefall when the very institution God created to lead our culture and the people to the Lord, has allowed itself to become part of this sinful and rebellious landscape???

Sadly, in the Bible, other than the prophet warning the people, the remnant was quiet never heard from until AFTER God’s wrath and punishment rained down upon the children of Israel. It was ultimately the remnant that led their nation back to God and His Truth during that time of punishment, and helped re-establish the worship of Almighty God and following His Truth in the aftermath.

I don’t believe that the remnant needs to remain silent and sit back while our nation experiences the wrath and judgment of Almighty God. I believe that if the remnant will rise up with one voice, we can see God’s hand of judgment stayed for a season. However, we have no time left.

As I told you years ago, we would see God’s wrath and judgment begi! n to fall
on our nation. I believe we have a brief reprieve, a few years to get serious about leading this nation back to God our Creator and Biblical Truth! However, we must act now!

This movement cannot be led by a mere man of flesh and blood, but must be guided and empowered by the Holy Spirit. Works of men are little more than fiefdoms, and we already have thousands of them in Christendom which is a major reason why the church has virtually no influence over our culture.

This has got to be a Spirit-led movement of the remnant, God’s true and faithful followers. Those in the remnant refuse to bow their knee to the gods of this world, their goals and desires are heavenly and not earthly, and they seek to use their God-given gifts and talents to serve and glorify Him.

As for Liveprayer, God has uniquely positioned this end-days ministry to be a catalyst to rally and lead His remnant, to sound the trump of warning, in the marketplace and help guide His remnant to l! ead this
nation back to God and His Truth for a season. It is amazing what God can do with only a few who are completely and unconditionally sold out to Him!

In nearly 20 years, Liveprayer, one small work of God operated out of the back of a used car lot, has literally impacted tens of millions of lives worldwide through the Internet and secular media, responded to over 150 million emails for prayer, have over 15 million praise reports archived, and seen over 1,300,000 souls we know of come to faith in Jesus Christ.

Liveprayer has refused to get involved in the politics the big-time Christian ministries become ensnared in, stayed true to our mission to reach out to the lost and hurting masses in the marketplace despite knowing the road to comfort and prosperity in the ministry is paved through the Christian media, and has never compromised the Gospel and God’s Truth found in the Bible regardless the personal consequences to myself or that it caused many key donors to stop
supporting God’s work here.

When I die, it is God, not man who I will stand before just like you and every other man will. Having a strong unified voice is the key for the remnant to be successful in helping to turn this nation back to God and His Truth while leading lost souls to faith in Jesus Christ. It will be the sacrifice of those in the remnant, the sacrifice of their time, talent, and treasure, that will help us see victory!

I love you and care about you so much. While this nation calls for Barabbas, there is still a faithful remnant calling for Jesus! There is NO EXCUSE we still slaughter 4,000 babies in this nation every day. There is NO EXCUSE we have men marrying men and women marrying women in this nation. The is NO EXCUSE for the proliferation of porn and gambling. There is NO EXCUSE that the media puts out the unfiltered garbage it does 24/7.

THERE IS NO EXCUSE THAT SATAN IS ABLE TO INFLUENCE THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF THE MASSES 24/7 WITHOUT A! NY
OPPOSITION!!!

Today, I echo the challenge Elijah issued to the people of his day on Mt. Carmel, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.”

Our nation and this world is overdue the wrath and judgment of God for our gross wickedness. Now is the hour for the remnant to rise up and be heard before it is too late. Our time is up and we are currently operating on God’s grace and mercy at this point.

LIVEPRAYER WILL HELP LEAD THE REMNANT AND USE OUR POWERFUL VOICE FOR GOD’S TRUTH IN THE MARKETPLACE TO CALL OUR NATION AND THE WORLD TO REPENTANCE AND THE LOST TO FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST. IT WILL BECOME A VOICE FOR THOSE WHO ARE THE TRUE REMNANT AND MOBILIZE THE FAITHFUL TO WIN VICTORIES OVER THE SOCIAL ISSUES OF OUR DAY AND LEAD THE LOST TO FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST! TIME IS RUNNING OUT, THE HOUR IS UPON US, IT IS TIME TO ACT AND ACT DECISIVELY!!! WILL YOU BE PART OF GOD’S REMNANT???

In His ! love and
service,

Your friend, brother, and co-laborer in Christ,

PALM SUNDAY!!!

Leave a comment

(Hebrews 10:25)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, thank you for obediently going to Jerusalem on this day we celebrate as “Palm Sunday.” It was an act of pure obedience. Please oh Lord, let ME be obedient each day and follow You. It is my heart’s desire to live a life pleasing and acceptable to You, and that starts with my obedience. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

During this Easter season, it is one of the two times a year that almost everyone who even professes to believe in God goes to church. Of course, the other is Christmas. I thought that this would give me an opportunity to address something that I deal with in the prayer requests I receive daily here at Liveprayer, and that is, how important it is to go to church. Not just on the special holidays, but to be actually part of a fellowship of believers all year long.

Let me make this point perfectly clear up front. Going to church and belonging to a body of believers IS NOT AN O! PTION.
Read today’s scripture from Hebrews. This is God telling you NOT to stop meeting together. Even in the early church this had become a problem. Never forget my friend, the church is NOT a man-made idea, it is a God-made idea. This is another way God has provided for His children to remain strong, and live productive, victorious lives. Trust me, over my years in ministry I have heard every rationale for not going to church that there is and the only one that is valid is when you are physically unable to attend.

By the way, sleeping in does not count as physically unable to attend. Not going to church is living in rebellion to God’s will for your life!

The reason God has made this part of our life with Him is, to stay on track. So, there are several basic things that we MUST do. We MUST pray and we MUST read the Bible every day. We also MUST be part of a fellowship because it is in that fellowship we are spiritually fed and nurtured. It is in that fellowship we make! friends
with other believers. It is in that fellowship we usually find ways to serve the Lord. It is in that fellowship we grow spiritually!!!

Before you say it, let me. There is not, never has been, and never will be a perfect church because a church is made up of imperfect people from the pastor on down. That is a fact. For those of you looking for a church home, the best advice that I can give you is to pray, find a place where the Word of God is preached in an uncompromising way, and find a place that is not operating in contradiction to the Bible (example: A church that promotes an unscriptural lifestyle such as homosexuality or a church that does not accept the basic tenets of faith such as the virgin birth, who Jesus is, and the work on the cross). Find a place where you feel that you can grow spiritually as well as serve the Lord.

I have found that after preaching in over 500 churches of every denomination, that the key to a great church is the shepherd, the past! or. I
have so much respect for those God has called to be pastors. I honestly prayed that God would never call me to pastor a church. It is one of the most difficult jobs in the Kingdom. However, it is important to find a true shepherd as described in John Chapter 10.

I am praying today that during this Easter season, you will come under great conviction about becoming part of a fellowship if you are not already. It is important to your life and relationship with the Lord. You will never grow spiritually without this being part of your life. It is impossible. It is also a reason that many are struggling in their life. I realize that some of you have been hurt in the past by a church. DO NOT let your past experiences get in the way. That is a ploy of satan who wants you out there all alone so that you are an easy target. There is safety in numbers.

As I normally do, I am going to let you pray about this. One thing that I realized early in my ministry is that I cannot f! orce
someone to do anything. God didn’t make us that way. He gave us the free will to make our own decisions. My job is to tell you what the Word says, what God wants from your life, and how you can become all that He has raised you up to be. Like in everything, there are basics. Without doing the basics, it just doesn’t work. Going to church and being part of a local fellowship are just two of the basics that is critical to your spiritual health. I am praying in earnest that this message is finding fertile ground in the hearts that need to hear these words today. Make it a part of your life not just on Christmas and Easter but part of each week.

I love you and care about you so much. I am praying for you and trusting God that those who are not a part of a church, will make that commitment today. Remember, it is not an option but something that God requires. If you need a church home, let me encourage you to become part of the LivePrayer Church. In just a few years, it has ! become
the world’s online cathedral, with over 10,000 joining our service each week. Each week the service is posted at 12:01 EDT and is up all week so you can worship on whatever day, whatever time is convenient to you.

A battle bigger than 100 Super Bowls!!!

Leave a comment

(1 Kings 18:21-40)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Father, I thank You for this day. I know that today was not promised to me, but it is a gift from You. Dear God, I trust Your Word today that tells me that I can give my burdens to You, that You will take it from me. I believe Your Word that tells me to cast my cares on You, because You care for me. In the name of Jesus, I surrender my needs and burdens to You. Fill me today with Your joy and with Your peace! In Jesus name I pray…AMEN!!!

God versus satan is like the NFL’s current Super Bowl champion New England Patriots playing against the best high school football team in the nation. As good as that high school team may be, they are over-matched in every area and have NO CHANCE to win. There is one scenario however, in which the high school team is able to win. That is if the Patriots don’t show up for the game and lose by a forfeit. If you read the last chapters of the Bible, you know that in t! he end
God will defeat satan and send him into the Lake of Fire for eternity (Rev. 20:10).

Until that time, satan is a very real enemy that can only win when God is not present!!!

Sadly, this world that we live in, our culture, is NOT going to ever get better. The social issues that we fight like divorce, abortion, homosexuality, adultery, fornication, declining morals and ethics, drugs and alcohol, are never going to get better…only worse as time goes on. What has helped to feed this steady decline in our culture is the media. Radio, television, the Internet, movies, music, and publications. What fuels the media is advertising.

Satan is the “prince of the power of the air,” and has slowly but surely WON the battle for the media which he uses to feed his lies to the masses worldwide 24/7. Satan has WON the battle in the advertising world which is the fuel the media machine runs on. As each day, each week, each month, each year passes, satan becomes more bold in! using
the media to fulfill his mission which is to kill, steal, and destroy the lives of people!

The reason satan has won this battle is simple, THERE NEVER WAS A BATTLE! Instead of going head to head with satan, Christians decided to not fight. What Christians have done in the last 40 years is like Moses not trying to cross the Red Sea. What Christians have done in the last 40 years is like David running from Goliath. What Christians have done in the last 40 years is like Stephen keeping his mouth shut. What Christians have done in the last 40 years is RUN FROM satan!

Instead of battling satan, we retreated and set up our own TV stations and networks, set up our own radio stations and networks, wrote our own books and magazines, made movies and music for ourselves.

We decided to NOT FIGHT for the mainstream vehicles that the people of the world are plugged into every day. Instead, we set up our own vehicles that are geared to only reach those who are already in ! the
church. If people outside the church were “accidentally” reached that was fine, but these are vehicles clearly designed to take the message of Christ to the people of Christ and NOT to the world at large in which we live.

Being a huge sports fan, I have always loved I Kings chapter 18. There are lots of rich battles in the OT, like David and Goliath, the children of Israel against those people who denied the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. But the account in 1 Kings chapter 18 of God versus the prophets of Baal is THE BEST! This was bigger than the Super Bowl. It was literally God -vs- satan. If it was a football game, it would have been 77-0! God wiped satan out.

The great lesson here is two-fold. First, the people of God must be bold enough to pit God against satan like Elijah was, and second, God will NEVER lose!

I love you and care about you so much. As you can tell even from these written words, this is something that I have great passion about. We! as the
people of God have got to become more bold and not be afraid to take God outside the four walls of the church and into this lost and sinful world. Head to head with satan, God will win EVERY TIME!

I will give you a small, but perfect example, the Liveprayer TV program that currently airs “live” every Mon-Fri from 11pm EDT to Midnight on Liveprayer.com as well as ROKU, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Over the 15 years since the TV program became part of our ministry, even though I deal with the issues of the day from a Biblical worldview, pray for people’s needs on the air, it has always aired on non-Christian networks, stations and platforms since that is the audience I am trying to reach. Christians and non-Christians alike who are just normal people going thru the day to day struggles of life, looking for real answers and real hope.

Every week we have incredible testimonies of people reaching out to God in their time of need and having their lives changed. We s! ee people
every week come to faith in the Lord because of the program. What a great thrill that on the same media platforms carrying the lies of satan to the world, lives are being impacted for Christ and people are getting saved !!!

My friend, time is short, the trumpet will blow at any moment, what are we waiting for? Yes, we are saved and we know where our eternal home is, BUT WHAT ABOUT THOSE IN THIS WORLD THAT ARE LOST? I will pray for you today to open your hearts to these words today. God is calling YOU to be like Elijah on your job, at school, where you recreate, whatever you do in the normal course of your day. HAVE NO FEAR since we serve a God that will answer by FIRE!!!

When we put God against satan, God will win every time. THE ONLY WAY GOD CANNOT WIN IS IF WE ARE AFRAID TO LET HIM! Throughout our daily lives, there will always be opportunities to pit God versus satan. My challenge to you today is this. DON’T run from these opportunities. Be like Elijah and hav! e the
courage to stand up and CHALLENGE satan.

OUR GOD WILL WIN EVERY TIME!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend, brother, and co-laborer in Christ,

Bill Keller

Who is part of the “religion of social justice?”

(Joel 3:9)

***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!

*** “MAYOR PETE” UPDATE: Here is the most current media promoted quote by “Mayor Pete” designed to mock, demean, and paint Biblical Christians as hateful bigots. He said, “We need a more humane vison of faith than what VP Mike Pence represents!” The simple translation is, the Bible should not be the foundation of the Christian faith. Even though a person calls themselves a follower of Jesus Christ, thus having their faith rooted and grounded in His Word, only the most extreme in the faith actually do that. It is much more important to focus on being kind to others, help the less fortunate, and not judge others based on ! a book that has not
evolved with the times. This my friend is the clarion call in the year 2019 by people calling themselves Christians and a “fake church” that refuses to be held accountable by the very words God Himself wrote and are supposed to form the foundation of their faith!!!

“Proclaim this among the nations: Prepare for war! Rouse the warriors! Let all the fighting men draw near and attack.” Joel 3:9

The “religion of social justice” and who their adherents are, and why Biblical Christians are their only foe! A war is waging in our society, a war that only one side is really fighting in earnest, a war that most on one side don’t even realize exists! This war is between those who are part of the religion of social just, groups who fight relentlessly and with everything they have every minute of every day! Their only foe is Biblical Christians who for the most part not only aren’t fighting in this war, but don’t even know there is a war!!!

In an! y war, you must
understand who your enemy is. For instance, in the ultimate war of good and evil we know it is the God of the Bible versus satan. So the first step in this war Biblical Christians are in against the religion of social justice, we have to know exactly who makes up this religion of social justice. As with any religion, people are bound together by certain commonly held beliefs. For those who are part of the religion of social justice, their commonly held core belief is their hatred of Biblical Christians, the only group they must defeat and destroy to advance their “religion” without any interference.

Here is the list of those who make up the religion of social justice in no particular order since they all work together and with each other to advance their cause. If there was one group to point to as what you might call the “bishop” in this religion, it would be the baby killing industry. Other groups include those who oppose law enforcement, advocates of pro-! immigration/open
borders, environmentalists including those who push the lucrative climate change agenda, the pornography and gambling industries, the various powerful LGBTQ groups, and those who make up the cults and false religions of the world.

More groups making up the religion of social justice are the vast majority of the music, movie, and television industries, those who follow Marxists, communist, and socialist political ideologies, and the wicked racial division organizations. Big tech, those who control the internet and the top platforms that literally run the daily operations of the world affecting the lives of the entire 7 billion plus worldwide population.

Additionally you have those who identify as atheists, now the number one “religious group” in the United States. For the first time in history, atheists constitute the largest religious group in America. According to the General Social Survey, the number of Americans who have no religion has increased 266% ov! er the past
three decades and now account for 23.1% of the population, just barely edging out Catholics and Evangelicals as the nation’s dominant faith. Mainline Protestant churches have suffered the greatest collapse, declining 62.5% since 1982 and now comprising just 10.8% of the U.S. population.

Adherents to the religion of social justice also include the fake church I spoke of yesterday. If you missed the Daily Devotional for Tuesday 4/9/19 please read it. All of the Daily Devotionals are on our website. Most congregants who make up the fake church might call themselves Christians, but they pick and choose what parts of God’s Word they want to live by, and live in rebellion to those parts they don’t agree with.

Lastly, you have the vast percentage of the media, the 24/7 worldwide propagandist arm of the religion of social justice. You also have the political left around the world including those who ascribe to a globalist view, and the Democratic Party in the Unite! d States.
Thirty years ago you could find a percentage of the Democratic Party who were not in lockstep to a hard left ideology. Today, that is no longer true as their ideology is held above all else…including this nation!

Now do you understand the importance of several reoccurring themes I have written in some form most days these past 20 years? Why I constantly talk about the vast percentage of first one, now two generations have never even been to church and have no faith background? Their views of the life, of the world, their beliefs, have not been shaped by God’s Word but a sin-filled and rebellious culture that opposes God’s Word on every issue!

This is why I have upset many people over the years by ripping those who masquerade as “pastors” but are little more than money hustlers, motivational speakers, building their own kingdom and not God’s! You have the “fake church” I talked about yesterday where people go to be entertained and not equippe! d to be the soldiers of
Christ, prepared to contend for the faith as Biblical Christians are called to do.

Let me also add, as I have stated often politics IS NOT THE ANSWER!!! The importance of politics is that it provides the influence over society. When you have a political party that is sympathetic to the Christian community, it allows Christians to do the world God has called us to in His Word with a little less confrontation. A political party in power opposed to Christians makes the work of the Gospel more challenging. However, don’t forget the early church was birthed and initially grew in the midst of the most repressive, anti-Christian political atmosphere imaginable, as Rome was literally seeking to kill Christians and totally destroy the faith.

I love you and care about you so much. I think back to an event we will visit next week during Holy week, as Jesus and His disciples went to the Garden to pray after the Last Supper. If you remember, Jesus, knowing in His omn! iscience
what was about to happen, asked them to pray with Him. Sadly, they slept instead, only waking up when the guards of the Sanhedrin came to arrest Jesus.

My friend, there is a war, a very real war that is taking place as I type these words. It is a war with the religion of social justice against Biblical Christians. Most Biblical Christians aren’t even aware this war is being fought, and like the disciples are sleeping. I am doing my best to wake you up so you aren’t awoken by the enemy with their swords drawn!

The good news is that we know how this war end. GOD WILL WIN AND HIS FOLLOWERS WILL RULE AND REIGN WITH HIM!!! It is our commission during this brief journey we are on in this life, to fight daily for the cause of Christ and to help lead as many as we can to faith in Jesus Christ. The real prize in the war we are in with the religion of social justice is for the eternal souls of men. May we be found faithful as each day God blesses us with, we tak! e our stand
for Christ and glorify Him!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend, brother, and co-laborer in Christ,

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

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Please Lord, give me the strength that when tested, I will not be silent nor will I be afraid to tell YOUR TRUTH! Give me courage, give me strength, and let me stand strong for You no matter what the personal consequences! In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

*** “MAYOR PETE” UPDATE: The media is promoting this tool of satan since they feel he is the answer to combat Biblical Christians. This weekend speaking to a LGBTQ fundraising organization, “Mayor Pete” said he would have done anything not to be gay. Buttigieg said, “If you had offered me a pill to make me straight, I would have swallowed it before you had time to give me a sip of water.” He went on, “I wish the Mike Pence’s of the world could understand, that if you have a problem with who I am, then your problem is not with me, your quarrel is with my Creator!”

Of course “Mayor Pete” is simply regurgi! tating the great lie of the
LGBTQ community that people are “born gay” to explain their sexual perversion. Modern science has CLEARLY rejected, and despite valiant efforts, has been unable to prove that ANYONE is “born gay.” LIKE ALL SIN IT IS A CHOICE!

You are born with black skin or white skin. Taking your pants off to have sex is a CHOICE! He and those who are in the same sexual perverse bondage can’t blame it on God, since it is God who gave the gift of sex to men and women to be enjoyed in the bonds of marriage, His Holy Institution between one man and one woman for one lifetime! God would not create a man or a woman to engage in perverted, unnatural , and unhealthy sex with those of the same sex and then declare that act a sin throughout the Old and New Testament!

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, mis! erable, 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 2019. 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 accepted as a wonderful lifestyle, gay marriage is su! pported 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 TODAY 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 “religious 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 redef! ine 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, brother, and co-laborer in Christ,

The most dangerous Democrat currently running for that party’s nomination!

Leave a comment

(Matthew 7:21-23)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Lord, please give us the discernment to see those who may call themselves followers of You, yet live in rebellion to Your Word! We know in the last days many “false Christ’s” will appear to deceive the very elect. Guide us oh Lord, and keep us close to You every moment of every day! In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!!!

Not everyone who says to me, “Lord, Lord,” will enter the kingdom of heaven,but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?” Then I will tell them plainly, “I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!” Matthew 7:21-23

The most dangerous Democrat of the dozens currently running for that party’s nomination is a little known mayor from a small Midwestern town. Of course that is the mayor for! the past 7 years of South
Bend, Indiana, Pete Buttigieg. “Mayor Pete” as he is called, is a Harvard grad and Rhodes Scholar. He was a Navy intelligence officer for 8 years with a 7-month deployment to Afghanistan. However, what makes “Mayor Pete” dangerous is that he is running for the Democratic nomination as a man of faith, a Christian!

The danger of “Mayor Pete” isn’t his claims to be a Christian, only God ultimately knows a person’s heart in regards to salvation. The danger is in the FACT that he claims to be a Christian despite choosing to engage in perverted, unnatural, unhealthy sex with other men, he has entered into a perverted “marriage” with another man, and wholeheartedly supporting the slaughter of innocent babies!

The Bible tells us we know a tree by the fruit it bears. While only God ultimately knows the human heart, as Christians we have every right and RESPONSIBILITY to judge a person’s words and deeds. I am not trying to be a smart aleck, but call! ing yourself a Christian
doesn’t make you any more a Christian than if I called myself a giraffe!

YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN BECAUSE YOU HAVE GIVEN YOUR HEART AND LIFE BY FAITH TO JESUS CHRIST! YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN BECAUSE AS A FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST YOU DO YOUR BEST TO OBEY HIS WORD! IT WAS JESUS WHO SAID, “IF YOU LOVE ME YOU WILL OBEY ME.” THAT MEANS HIS WORD!!! THE BOOK HE WROTE, THE BIBLE!!!

John 1:1 says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God!”

As a Christian we don’t get to pick and choose what parts of the Bible we want to obey and what parts we ignore. The Christian faith is not a smorgasbord! It doesn’t matter what you think or like, it matters what God SAYS! The Bible is God’s inspired, inerrant Word, representing Absolute Truth, and our final authority in all matters!

Thirty years ago “Mayor Pete” would not even be taken seriously when he talks about his faith. That would be true 20 years ago, even 10 ye! ars ago. However this is
2019 and we have to understand the landscape of the “church” in 2019. I started warning people of the “religious left” 15 years ago. This movement has also given rise to the “fake church,” which I will discuss in the Daily Devotional tomorrow!

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 “! religious 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.

The reality of 2019 is that the vast percentage of the past 2 generations have never been to church. Well over half of those who do go to church today are in a “church” that does not opposed abortion, or the LGBTQ community, or same-sex marriage. Due to the watering down of the Gospel and actually co-opting the new-age lie from hell that there are many roads that lead to God, actually rejecting the Bible as Absolute Truth, we have a generation of gutless motivational/prosperity/feel good messengers masquerading as pastors. Instead of the church leading the culture the culture is leading the church!

When you also factor in that the culture we live in does all it can to marginalize, minimize, and silence Biblical ! Truth, a
media that is overtly anti-Christian, there is a war that sadly most Christians don’t even know is being waged by the religion of social justice and their only true foe…Biblical Christians!

***EVERY BIBLICAL CHRISTIAN MUST UNDERSTAND THE ENEMY AND WHAT THIS WAR VERSUS THE RELIGION OF SOCIAL JUSTICE IS ALL ABOUT SINCE THE SOCIAL AND CULTURAL ISSUES BIBLICAL CHRISTIANS ARE SEEING AND FIGHTING DAILY ARE COMING FROM ONE SATANICALLY INSPIRED FORCE!!! PLEASE, SET ASIDE 60 MINUTES TO EDUCATE YOURSELF AND WATCH THE Liveprayer TV program from Friday March 1, 2019: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-kwwHy1i6k

“Mayor Pete” is in the public arena touting his faith and looking to tap into those in the faith community who have bought into the same watered down rejection of Biblical Truth he has. It should be no shock he is part of the Episcopal Church which I declared “anathema” 16 years ago when it elected a man who chose to engage in sex with other men! , Gene Robinson!
The fastest growing denomination in the US today is the Metropolitan Community Church. These are “churches” with “pastors,” men and women who proudly and unrepentantly engage in sex with people of the same sex and cater to a congregation of like-minded people.

The first real national attention “Mayor Pete” received was when Vice President Mike Pence was Governor of Indiana and introduced the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. This was primarily introduced to protect the liberties of Christians that were being persecuted by public policy simply for their faith beliefs.

“Mayor Pete” led the charge in rebellion to this act, seeing it as undermining the “rights” of those in the LGBTQ community. It is clear from his public comments, he still harbors a real bitterness and hatred for VP Pence who he sees representing Biblical Christians…his enemy! (For the record, his real enemy isn’t Biblical Christians like VP Pence, but God’s Word!)
The nation is going to see for
the first time the real dividing lines by those who claim to be Christians. On one side are those in the liberal camp of “Mayor Pete” who claim they love God, embrace the teachings of Jesus, and rebuke Biblical Christians as bigots and hate-mongers. They reject Scripture in their embrace of sexual perversion, perverting God’s Holy Institution of Marriage, and dismissing killing babies as a “woman’s right to choose.” They claim who oppose them are not real Christians, but intolerant, narrow-minded hateful people.

I love you and care about you so much. I have been writing for 20 years about the “Mayor Pete’s” of the world, the “fake church” I will go in depth about tomorrow, and our current generation of entertainment, ear-tickling, motivational “pastors” who refuse to talk about sin and hell. A responsibility of the true church is to equip the saints and train the flock for service and contend for souls. That rarely happens in the church t! oday and why very few Biblical
Christians are even aware this war I have shared with you today even exists!

Like all deceivers, “Mayor Pete” is good at quoting Scripture out of context to support his anti-Biblical beliefs. If you remember, satan when confronting Jesus during those 40 days and 40 nights quoted Scripture, but slightly off to serve his evil purpose.

Mayor Pete” like to quote President Lincoln when he said, “The will of God prevails. In great contests each party claims to act in accordance with the will of God. Both may be, and one must be, wrong.” He uses this quote in defending his rejection of Scripture, in justifying his sexual perversion, perverted marriage, and stand for killing innocent babies!

Like the master deceiver satan, he left off the most critical part of this quote. The last part of that quote says, “God cannot be for and against the same thing at the same time.” The great question then becomes how do we know what God is for and what God is! against? THE BOOK HE
WROTE..THE BIBLE…TELL US! IT IS OUR FINAL AUTHORITY IN ALL MATTERS! That is what condemns “Mayor Pete” and those who claim to be Christians but live their lives in rebellion to God’s Word!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend, brother, and co-laborer in Christ,

Bill Keller
