Having the Passion of the Suicide Bomber

Leave a comment

(1 Peter 2:12)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, I have strayed from you and want to come home. I have allowed the daily life in this world to lead me astray, to allow me to drift from you, and I miss you dear Lord! Today, I recommit my heart and life to you and to serve you. Use me for your glory Lord. Make my life count for your Kingdom. Above all, bring to me your PEACE and JOY! Give me the joy of my salvation again as I walk close to you each moment of each day. In Jesus name I pray…AMEN!

Having the passion of the suicide bomber. One of the undeniable facts about those who are committing these horrible suicide bombings in Israel and elsewhere in the world, is their total commitment to what they believe. It is misguided and horribly wrong what they do, but I can only pray today that those who claim to have their faith in Christ would be JUST as passionate and JUST as committed to the cause of Christ!

Of course these people represent an element of the false religion of Islam, but the fact is, they are SO committed to their cause, SO committed to their belief, that they are willing to give their very lives for it. My question for you today is simply this. Are you as committed to your faith in Christ to give your very life for Him, if that is what you are asked to do?

In the United States, we have had the luxury of being very comfortable in our faith. We worship in freedom, not having to worry about outside interferences from those who do not agree with the message of our Lord. Even today, there are MANY places on this earth that this is NOT the case. We have many who get this Devotional every day in parts of the world where you could literally be put to death for proclaiming faith in Christ.

I have often wondered what would happen if one Sunday morning a group of soldiers with machine guns came into a church, lined the people up, and simply said, “anyone who wants to denounce Christ can go home, the rest of you will be killed.” I really wonder how many would stand and claim Christ with their last breath. Those students of church history understand that this has been the choice many of God’s people have had to make since the very first church. Are we as passionate about our faith today, to literally give our lives for it?

Today’s Devotional is very short on purpose. We have seen the news reports over the past year especially of many brothers and sisters in Christ in the Middle East giving their life for Christ. How long before Christians in this country are faced with that challenge? I don’t want you to think about anything else today but this one question. If I was asked to give my life for Christ, would I???

I love you and care about you very much. The FACT is, if your answer is yes, then that means you are willing to do whatever God is calling you to do, whatever God is asking you to do, to further His Kingdom here on earth. We are clearly living in the last days as Jesus described in Matthew 24 and Paul spoke of in 2 Timothy 3 and 2 Peter 3. The challenge today is are you willing to literally give your life if you had to, to share the hope and love of Christ with this lost and sin filled world?

God is asking you today to surrender your life to Him, so that He can use you to reach others with the promise of everlasting life. Are you willing to give your life to Him? Are you wiling to do all that He is asking you to do to see others come into the everlasting knowledge of Jesus Christ? ***Only a very few will ever be asked to actually die for the Lord, but ALL of God’s children are asked daily to surrender their lives to Him so that He can use you for His plan and purpose.

The fact is, the suicide bombers are daily giving their life for the lost cause that they have bought into. My challenge to you today is this. ARE YOU WILLING TO GIVE YOUR LIFE FOR CHRIST? The one thing that we know is that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. It is ONLY through Him that man comes to know everlasting life. Are you willing to give your life to proclaim THAT message? I am, and I pray today that you are too.

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

Bill Keller

Faith without Works is Dead

Leave a comment

(James 2:17)

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

Faith without works is dead. So often when we are going through a difficult time, people tell us to “have faith”, to “just trust God”. They say it as if God was some magician who snaps His fingers and automatically makes everything OK. While God has that power, and while God will use that power at times, God normally works through people and events. We rarely get in a mess overnight, and rarely are going to get out of a mess overnight.

Part of the “getting out” process is learning how to become totally dependent on Him. It is learning how to make our faith real. It is learning how to work in conjunction with our faith. True faith, Biblical faith, requires action. It is easy to say the words, but putting your actions behind the words is what real faith is all about.

One of the greatest examples from God’s Word of someone putting their actions to their faith was David. He not only had the faith that he could go out on the battlefield and defeat Goliath…He actually did it! You see my friend, if we really believe something, our natural response is to put actions to that belief. While most thought David was being foolhardy to go out and face Goliath, in David’s mind that was the only logical thing to do.

After all, His faith told Him that God would defeat this Philistine giant, and David was simply going to be God’s instrument. That is what our faith demands….ACTION. It is simply not good enough to say I believe. If you really believe, the only logical step is to step out and live that belief.

Why we don’t put actions to our faith simply boils down to the fact that we really don’t believe what we claim to believe. The true test of our faith is our willingness to step out and back up those words with our actions. One of the most difficult things to do for each one of us, and the one area the church has always had a major problem teaching, is taking our faith and making it real in our day to day lives.

Saying we believe one thing, and then living in opposition to that, makes me question how much you really believe in what you claim. The bottom line is if you really believe it, you live it! The translation of our faith in Jesus Christ into our every day life becomes the real test of our walk with the Lord. The world clearly understands this concept. One of the biggest reasons people in the world reject the message of Christ is because they hear Christians profess one thing and then live in opposition to that profession. The visible hypocrisy becomes a major stumblingblock to many people.

How do we do a better job of putting actions to our faith? It is a process that builds day upon day, month upon month, year upon year. Look at the basis of David’s faith when he went out to fight Goliath. He told Saul that in the past when guarding his fathers sheep, he had to defend them from a bear and lion. In both cases the Lord gave David victory. He said it so perfectly when he told Saul that the same God who gave him victory over the lion and bear, is the same God who would give him victory over Goliath.

I say to you today, that the same God who has given you victory in the past, is the same God who will give you victory today!!! It is upon that foundation that you should boldly walk out your faith each day…put actions to your faith each day!!!

I love you and care for you so much. I will be praying for you today that you will begin to put actions to your faith. Make your faith come alive in your day to day activities. The Lord will help you to have more faith each day as you watch Him work in your life. Your faith will grow, giving you even more courage to live each day for Him.

My friend, this becomes one of the benchmarks of our Christian experience. It is simply not enough to believe. It is simply not enough to say that you have faith. Real faith, Biblical faith, REQUIRES action on our part. It requires us to live out our faith each and every day. I will be praying today that you will make your faith real each day as you live your life for Jesus.

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

One of the Most Difficult Things in Our Journey with the Lord is Follow Him Where He Wants Us

Leave a comment

(Psalms 123:2, 40:1; Isaiah 40:31; James 1:4)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help me to be a blessing to someone I meet today. Help me to not be so self-absorbed that I miss the opportunity to be a good witness for you. Today, I yield myself to you. Use me for your glory! In the name of Jesus…AMEN!!!

No doubt one of the most difficult things we do in our journey with the Lord is follow Him to be where He wants us to be, and doing what He wants us to be doing. I have no doubt that it is the ultimate goal of every follower of Christ, everyone that has surrendered their lives to Christ. Having that as our goal, achieving that goal is something EVERY Christian struggles with throughout their life. The million dollar question is how do we get to the exact place God wants us to be, doing the exact thing God wants us to be doing with our life each day.

To find the answer, we have to start with the big picture. Each person that lives was created with the same purpose. That is to serve and glorify God, in this life and for eternity. The starting point of being where God wants you to be, doing the things God wants you to do is in surrendering your life completely, unconditionally to Him. It is the one and only thing that God has ever asked us to do. The fact is, the Bible says that if you have accepted Christ as your Savior, it is no longer your life, it belongs to Him. So in reality, you are only surrendering to Him what is already His to begin with.

Completely surrendering our life to the Lord is one of the most difficult things for any person to do. Our flesh says NO, it is MY LIFE. Satan is there with his lie that you can give God a little bit of your life, but also keep some for yourself. Jesus said that you can’t serve two masters, you have to choose who you will serve. The fact is, it is in LOSING our life that we find it. Many people have tried living with one foot in the church, and one foot in the world. I know I did for many years. I bought into satan’s lie that I could go to church on Sunday, give the church a big check every week, do a few things on the side for God, but still keep my life and do whatever I WANTED. I am ashamed to admit that it took going to Federal Prison before I finally surrendered my life completely to the Lord.

The rich young ruler came to Jesus and when Jesus told him to give away all that he had and follow Him, to turn from the things of this world and completely surrender his life to Christ, the Bible says he went away “sorrowful.” When it came time to choose following Jesus or keeping the things of this world, he decided he could not let go of the things of this world. As Jesus said, YOU CAN’T SERVE TWO MASTERS! You can’t serve God and mammon at the same time. God isn’t impressed with our “scraps of service,”God wants our life! You will NEVER be right where God wants you to be, doing exactly what God wants you to do with your life until you first surrender your life 100% to Him?not 70%, not 80%, not 90%, not even 99% . . . 100%!!!

Once you come to that place where you completely surrender your life to Christ, the challenge then is to find out exactly where God wants you to be, and doing exactly God wants you to do in serving Him. The starting place is to determine what you have a passion for and what are you talented in. It is God that gives each person a passion for those things we love in life. It is also God that gives us our gifts and talents. That is why those young adult years are so critical. It is during those years that as we are exposed to different things, we develop a like for some things over others, and start to understand the gifts God has given to us.

GOD GIVES EVERYONE GIFTS, NATURAL ABILITY IN CERTAIN AREAS, BUT WE STILL MUST DEVELOP AND PERFECT THOSE GIFTS OVER TIME. In addition to gaining an understanding about what things in life we have a passion for, finding our what our natural gifts are, God will open and close doors during our life to guide us where HE wants us to be. Remember, there are NO coincidences with God. Nothing happens by accident. God allows events to happen in our life, allows people to come into our life, to guide us to where He wants us to be, doing what He wants us to be doing.

I love you and care about you so much. After completely surrendering our life to the Lord, the most important thing we can do is spend time with HIM each day in prayer and the Word. God speaks to us through His living Word, through that “still small voice” as we pray, in addition through other people and our circumstances. As our lives are yielded to the Lord, become empty vessels for Him to use, God WILL place you right where He wants you to be, doing exactly what He wants you to be doing.

Never forget, our life is made up of many seasons. Throughout the course of our journey God may have us doing MANY things for the Kingdom. That is why we must be close to the Lord each day, listening to Him with our spiritual ears and watching Him with our spiritual eyes. We are soldiers in HIS army, and as any soldier knows, your commander may have you fighting in one place today and somewhere totally new tomorrow.

I will be praying for you today. Praying that you will take time to meditate on these words. The last element is patience, WAITING ON THE LORD. Again, it is God who opens and closes doors in our life. There are times we need to be patient, wait on the Lord to not only show us a door, but open that door. The goal of every follower of Christ is to be where God wants us to be, doing what God wants us to do with our life. We achieve that goal by first surrendering our life completely to the Lord, by following those God-given passions while using the gifts He gives us, by staying in a close intimate daily relationship with Him so we can ?hear? and ?see? Him, and be patiently waiting on the Lord to guide us.

The ultimate in life is to wake us each day knowing you are exactly where God wants you to be and doing exactly what God wants you to be doing with your life. I will be praying for you today as you come to that place in your life.

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

We Wake Up Each Day and Face the Choice of Who We Will Serve that Day

Leave a comment

(Judges 13:24, 14:3, 16:1, 16:21, 16:30)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, please help me to live this day honoring you in my thoughts, words, and deeds. Help me this day to live my life pleasing and acceptable to Jesus. Allow me to use my life to help someone else during this day, and be kind to everyone I come across no matter how they may treat me. Let Christ shine through me throughout this day oh Lord, be glorified through my life! In Jesus name I pray…AMEN!

No matter long you have been saved, no matter how greatly God is using your life, the fact is that we each wake up in the morning and face the choice of who we will serve that day. I have used the life of Samson in various opportunities that I have had over my years in the ministry when I was speaking to pastors or men’s groups. But Samson’s life is very applicable for this message today, in regards to the choices that you will make today and every day, as to exactly WHO you will serve.

Samson was miraculously born to a mother who was unable to conceive a child. He was dedicated to God’s service even before he was conceived. While many may scoff at this, I have known many women who were unable to have children, but after much prayer and seeking God, their once barren womb brought forth life! Just in the short 30 months Liveprayer has been on line, we have had two such births that I can recall off of the top of my head. Samson was dedicated to the Lord’s service, grew up being taught all about God, and the Bible says that the Spirit of God was upon his life.

One of the points that I want to stress today is that here was a man, dedicated to God even before he was conceived, raised in the “church” of his day, and had a heart so close to God that the Bible even says God’s Spirit was upon him. DESPITE THIS, SAMSON, JUST LIKE YOU AND I, WOKE UP EVERY MORNING AND HAD TO MAKE CHOICES THROUGHOUT THE DAY WHO HE WOULD SERVE!

The Bible says that the devil comes to kill, steal, and destroy. If you have accepted Christ into your heart by faith, the Bible says that you are saved (John 3:16; Romans 10:10; Ephesians 2:8-9). However, even though the devil can’t have your eternal soul, he can destroy your life, steal the joy, peace, and abundance Jesus promised those who followed Him would know during our brief journey here, and kill us literally.

I have known many great men and women of God over the years, who allowed sin in their life to consume them to the point of death. One dear brother got into the bondage of drug addiction and died from an overdose. One pastor I know looked to alcohol instead of the Lord in times of trouble, and alcohol eventually destroyed his life, and he died much earlier then he should have because of it. One sister, who did many great things for God, allowed the enemy to throw her into a state of depression to the point that she took her own life.


As you read through the life of Samson, as he went through life, he chose to turn from God and serve the enemy. Samson knew how God felt about being unequally yoked with nonbelievers. Samson knew God’s plan for marriage. Samson knew God forbids sex outside of marriage. Yet Samson’s weakness was women, women who did not know or honor God in their life.

The enemy is persistent. He will tempt the child of God over and over and over until he finds the weakness in their life. Samson’s weakness was women. Each day, just like you and me, he had to choose who he would serve that day. As much as the anointing of God was on his life, even though he served God in miraculous ways, even though God used him to bless many, IT WAS SAMSON WHO HAD TO MAKE THE CHOICE EACH DAY WHOM HE WOULD SERVE.

Over and over, Samson chose sin over God. Over and over, God showed his love and grace to Samson and gave him chances to straighten his life out. But Samson took God’s grace and mercy for granted, refused to turn from his sin, and it was his sin that ultimately destroyed his life, stole all of the blessings God had for him, and ultimately killed him.

Let me encourage you today. If you have chosen to serve sin, have allowed things to enter into your life that God does not approve of, TODAY is the day that you can stop. Is it that easy? NO WAY! It will be the hardest thing that you have ever done. But if you take the first step, God will strengthen you and help you to turn away from sin, and back to Him.


I love you and care for you so much. God loves you and cares for you even more. Each day, He gives you the choice to love Him and serve Him. Even those who have loved Him and served Him for many years, STILL each day must make that choice. I pray today that you learn from Samson’s life and choose God. Each day I get hundreds of emails from people all over the world, saying that what I write is intolerant, it isn’t for “today”, that there is nothing wrong with doing what we want.

They simply don’t understand that God loves us SO MUCH, that He sent His word to encourage us and guide us along our journey here. How He shows us to live our life is not to keep us from enjoying our life, but to know the peace, joy, and abundance that this life can offer. But He loves us enough to give us the free will to choose each day whether we will serve Him or not. That is a choice that I will make today, and it is a choice that YOU will make today. My prayer today is that you will choose to serve God.

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

Giving to God

(John 14:6)

***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 your 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!

“I have had several days of sobriety from porn and am feeling like there is light at the end of the tunnel! Your email back to me has given me much hope to persevere and get free from this addiction. Even brothers in Christ can get cough by the enemy if one is not vigilant enough. Thank you and God bless you Bill.”

“In October of 2013, I was watching Bill Keller on TV. I never was religious and barely believed in God. A particular show made an impact on me and I took Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I have never once regretted and I have grown in my relgion and relationship with the Lord. I want to say ‘Thank you.’ Pastor Keller, you made a BIG difference in my life. God bless you!”

“I’ve been watching your program this week via the internet and I’ve given my heart and life to Jesus. I want the peace and joy in my heart that can only experienced through salvation. I thank the Lord tonight for loving me and dying for my sins so that I might be saved. Please send me the booklet that you spoke of on the show in order that I may grow in my Christian life.”

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

As I read that passage of Scripture, it reminded me of my feelings towards you and the work here at Liveprayer. Paul took the Gospel to the lost and hurting in the world of his day by faith, trusting that God would provide for the day to day needs of his ministry. He looked to those that he ministered to to support his efforts to take Christ to those who were living without His love in their life. THEY MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR PAUL TO DO WHAT GOD HAD CALLED HIM TO DO!

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

(From a member of the Liveprayer family) “Bill -You & your team have really been on my mind & in my thoughts. I strongly believe you’re doing things the right way, & it breaks my heart that because you give the gospel for free – because you’re out doing things God’s way – you don’t have financial support from the American church to get out in the secular marketplace & to go toe-to-toe with false prophets. My wife & I gave a gift today which isn’t close to meeting your needs or requirements, but I pray God blesses it with multiplication.

I want to encourage you – your blunt honesty & the fact you do things the right way (no professional fund raising companies, no buildings or extravagant salaries) are why we’re giving today. It’s time for me & other Christians to put our money where our mouths are & quit paying mortgages & utilities for big buildings. Please keep telling the truth, God’s truth!!! If the finances don’t come in, God forbid, and you are forced to close down any part of your ministry, you have done your part by being obedient before God. It would be the rest of us who failed.

Thank you for being on the front lines! Thank you for leading & feeding me spiritually, both in word & deed! I pray today that God move hearts in a powerful way and deliver far more money than you’ve asked for. May He raise up more faithful partners, freeing us from fear & making us better able to hear His commands and then, more importantly, obey them. I realized about a month ago that you are my preacher. Thank you for the daily word. I promise I will lift you up in prayer & give financially to LivePrayer. I pray our Lord bless you & keep you. In God’s love.”

As we are down to the final 5 days of September, we have taken in $7,000 of the $65,000 we require for our basic Internet and TV operations budget this month. $8,000 of our balance is from the first week’s operations that is required to be paid immediately as we had to use funds received from that first week to cover our August shorttfall!

With the weekend coming up, we will lose 2 days of the final 5 this month! I am praying today that everyone will pray for these financial requirements to be taken care of by the end of the month so we can begin October with no budget shortfall for Liveprayer.com or the Liveprayer TV program!

I am praying for 2 of our friends God has richly blessed to help me with a special one-time gift of $4,000 that will clear up the $8,000 we require immediately. EVERY MONTH GOD CALLS ON SEVERAL FRIENDS WHO HAVE OBEDIENTLY ANSWERED THAT CALL TO MAKE A GREAT SACRIFICE AND HELP WITH A SIGNIFICANT GIFT!

—>If there is ONE of our friends that may have had a windfall from selling real estate..a business..or has been praying about sowing a significant gift into God’s work..PLEASE PRAY about sending a gift of $58,000 to insure our required finances are current and we could use the gifts from the rest of this month to get a head start on October’s Internet and TV operations.

TO GIVE A GIFT TO LIVEPRAYER, you can use your major credit card on our secure server at: http://www.liveprayer.com under the “Donation” link, you can give using your PayPal account using my email address: bkeller@liveprayer.com , or you can mail your gift to: Liveprayer, 6660 46th Ave. North, St.Petersburg, FL 33709. All gifts to Liveprayer are 100% tax deductible.

I love you and care about you so much. For those who have been part of the Liveprayer family for these many years, you know that I would never send a Devotional like this unless it was an emergency. I don’t play games when it comes to the finances. For 23 yrs, the 16+ yrs of Liveprayer.com, and the 12+ yrs of Liveprayer TV, I have simply shared our needs, got on my knees, and trusted God by faith to move on the hearts of people to provide for our needs.

My friend, I am counting on you today. I need to hear from you today. This is critical, and I desperately need your help. We are so close to seeing the fulfillment of all Liveprayer has been raised up to be. I can’t see everything stop now over a few thousand dollars. Will you reach down, make the sacrifce, and help me today??? I desperately need you and will be in prayer for the Lord to move on your heart to help me!

I NEED YOU NOW MORE THAN EVER TO STAND WITH ME!!! I CAN’T DO THIS ALONE!!! I am asking you today to simply pray about what God may be calling you to do to help me with this effort. I am also asking you to please forward this to every person you know, personally reach out to those who God has blessed with financial resources and encourage them to support this new work, and share this email with your pastor and ask him to pray about having your church make a special missions gift towards this effort.

Know that you and your family are in my prayers each day. Thank you for your love, prayers, and support as we take our stand in these last days. When this brief journey through life is over, what do we have to show for it? The only lasting legacy we have are those things we did for the Lord, those lives we have been able to impact for eternity! I have taken my stand and will proclaim His truth with my dying breath. Today, I am asking you to pray about continuing to stand with me at this critical time as we turn this nation back to God and His Truth!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

What about When God Asks You to Do Something for Him?

Leave a comment

(Genesis 12:1-3; Matthew 9:9)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help me to always be prepared to serve you in any way that I can. My life belongs to you. I am ready, willing, and able to answer your call as I go through my life each day. Use me for your glory. I am yours! In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

Every day people ask us to do things for them. Family members, friends, co-workers, often total strangers ask us to do something for them. In the course of our daily lives, the people that mean the most to us will ask us to do something special for them. It may be a parent or a sibling, it may be our spouse, it may be a very close friend, or it could be someone that we look up to and respect like our boss or pastor. All throughout our life people ask us to do things for them, and we do our best to do what they ask.

What about when God asks you to something for Him? Why are we able to do things for others but not for God? I have often wondered how many God called to do the job that Abraham did. Human beings have not changed since the Garden of Eden. Knowing that fact, I have no doubt that God called many men before He called Abraham who said yes to God.

Likewise, when Jesus called Matthew to follow Him, how many before Matthew said no? Throughout history we have men and women that God called to do great things for the Kingdom. I often wonder who God may have called to do that work, but turned God down.

Some of the most disappointing times in my life have been those when God was calling me to do something for Him and I said no. I was too busy. It wasn’t the right time. I had MY SCHEDULE and what God was asking me to do didn’t fit in. God really didn’t need me, He would find someone else. There are a million excuses that we can come up to basically tell God NO.

In looking back now, how could I have ever said no to God? This is GOD!!! The creator of the Heavens and the earth. MY CREATOR!!! God Himself came to me and said, ?Bill, will you do something for me?? and I said, NO! If a complete stranger came up to me and asked me to do something for them, as long as it was not something outrageous I would most likely do it. Yet, I tell God no???

I love you and care about you so much. The sad reality is that when we say no to God, we are the one that loses. God blesses us for our obedience. When we say no to God we miss our blessing. Our purpose in this life is to serve and glorify Him. When we say no to God, we are not fulfilling our purpose.

The greatest calling we have in this life is what God asks us to do for Him. When we say no to God, we miss our calling. The reality is, when we say no to God, He calls someone else to do what He asked us to do. Someone else is answering the call of God on their life, fulfilling their purpose and receiving the blessing we could have had. The work of God does not stop because we say no to God. It simply goes on without us.

I will be praying for you today. As I say, often, we only get one shot at life. This is it. MAKE IT COUNT! The fact is, God has a Divine plan and purpose for each one of us. Our purpose in this life is to serve and glorify Him with our lives. There is nothing greater that we can do with our life than to serve our God. It is an honor and a privilege that He gives us to work for Him. In faithfully and obediently serving God, we are blessed beyond all that we could ever ask or think.

MAKE YOUR LIFE COUNT BY DOING SOMETHING GREAT FOR GOD! Before Abraham, Matthew, Billy Graham, or anyone else that God has used could do great things for God, they first had to say yes when He called them. God is speaking to YOU today. He is asking you to do something for Him. SAY YES TO GOD!!!

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

Bill Keller

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

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

-Please don’t get excited because of the kabuki theater taking place in the House and Senate regarding the defundning of Planned Parenthood. Neither Speaker Boehner or Senate Majority Leader McConnell will go to the wall and take whatever legislative actions needed to make it happen. The bill will never get out of the Senate because they won’t play the same dirty parliamentary tricks the Democrats often use to pass legislation they want like the disastrous Obamacare? This is just another example of why I warn people often to not put their hope in politicians, especially since our real problems are not political but spiritual.

-VP Joe Biden was asked the other day about the abortion issue and he quickly stated that it was an issue “above his paygrade.” How gutless, since his entire political career he has voted 100% for the slaughter of innocent babies. When asked about late-term abortions, Hillary Clinton said that those only happened in medical emergencies. How stupid does she think people are? Less than a fraction of 1% of 1% of abortions have anyhting to do with medical emergencies. She simply doesn’t want to admit that she is a staunch supporter of abortions on demand NO MATTER WHAT STAGE OF THE PREGNANCY!

-Ahmed Mohamed, the 14-year-old Muslim freshman at a high school in Irving, Tex who was arrested temporarily for brining a “homemade clock” to school, actually built nothing! As I told my TV audience the night this story broke, I stated that I wanted to wait a few days and see what all the facts are, but something didn’t seem right. The day of the event, even before any facts came to light, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, officials at MIT, and even the President, all publicly praised the boy. He received invitations to visit Facebook, MIT who wanted him to be a student there when he was finished with high school, and the White House along with his “clock.” If you see a picture of his “clock,” it looks like a bomb. As facts have now come out, all this kid did was take the insides of a clock from Radio Shack, put it in a briefcase, and took it school He was told by various teachers to put it in his locker but he disobeyed, until one teacher took him to the principal’s office where they called the police out of concern it really was a bomb. In addition, his father turns out to be a Muslim activist with ties to CAIR. This was all a huge scam apparently to scare people and in some way use the incident as it was initially reported to generate sympathy for Muslims and support this false narrative of Islamaphobia the media loves to report on.

-The “baby doe” case in Mass. turns out to be just another sick example of people living their lives in rebellion to God and His Word. As it turns out, the mother of the baby was at “occupy wallstreet” in Boston where she hooked up in a tent with a man she didn’t know and 9 months later she had a baby. The baby’s father didn’t even know he had a child. The mother had a string of boyfriends over the years and one thought he saw demons in everything, including her baby. So one night he killed the baby, tossed the body into the Boston Harbor. By the grace of God and great police work, the baby was finally identified and the mother and the boyfriend who killed the child are in jail. Simply another sad example of lives lived in rebellion to God and how destruction is always the end result.

-Pray for rapper “Waka Flocka Flame,” who publicly stated about people who are transgendered, “You are who you are when God made you, not who you became after he did.” Being in the entertainment industry, you can imagine the backlash, but he has remained firm that people who do that to themselves are a “rebuke to God.” Amen. A rapper with more guts and telling more truth than most pastors!

-Men of Islam and young boy sex slaves. Over the 1400 year history of Islam, men have always had multiple wives, wives as young as 7, 8, 9. They have also had young boys as servants, who doubled as sex slaves. I have talked about this being part of the Islamic culture, and recently one of our military personnel in Afghanistan is facing court martial for coming to the aid of a 12-yo boy being raped all night by an Muslim Afghan officer who was stationed at one of our bases there. It amazes me how little people know about the culture of Islam. On one hand they denounce homosexuality and actually kill those who engage in such acts. Yet Muslim men of means or in high military positions have always had young boys as servants who doubled as sex slaves. THIS IS ISLAM AND HAS BEEN PART OF THEIR RECORDED HISTORY SINCE THEY BEGAN 1400 YEARS AGO!!! *BTW, you will soon see the courts being challenged to allow Muslim men to marry young girls under 15 as part of their “religious practices!”

-Doritos announced that it will come in rainbow colors to show support for the LGBT community. Sales will go to It Gets Better, a non-profit group started by the infamous anti-Christian bully and bigot Dan Savage! Just want you to know where your money goes the next time you buy Doritos or any Frito-Lay products!

-The White House has appointed the first openly gay leader of the US Army. This is just the latest shot taken by this President at the military, and great generals from President George Washington though today have been spit on by this disgusting appointment. Sadly, if he was an evangelical Christian, he would have never been appointed to this position.

-Lastly, Dr. Ben Carson has been under fire by the media and Muslim advocacy groups like CAIR for daring to state his belief that a Muslim should not be President. The fact is, I doubt there will ever be a Muslim who if elected President, could do as much to further the false religion of Islam and advocate for Muslims in this nation and around the world than has President Barack Hussein Obama! As a side note, being born of a Muslim father he was a Muslim. He clams to be a Christians because he went to a Christian church, but we know that doesn’t make you a Christian any more than standing on a runway makes you an airplane. I have never found anything written or on video where he denounced any affiliation with Islam!

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

I love and care about you so much. God is showing us DAILY that we must stop, turn back to Him and His Truth or be destroyed as He promised to do in today’s anchor verse. I wake up every day with the knowledge and understanding that we can still be like the people of Nineveh and that 2015 will be a year of victory as our verse for the year states, “But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!”

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

Bill Keller
