Is this man the anti-Christ?

(Revelation 13:2)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, give me Your strength to stand for Your Truth no matter what the cost. It is easy to call myself a follower of Jesus, but when confronted, when challenged, when faced with persecution, will I still say I am a follower of Jesus? I love You Lord and ask for Your strength so no matter what I have to endure for my faith, I will stand firm. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

Is George Soros the anti-Christ? The Bible has much to say about this individual who will dominate the world in the last days. Throughout history there has been much speculation who this person would be. Each generation has had a person many felt was the anti-Christ. In recent history, Adolph Hitler was thought to be the anti-Christ, but proved to be just another of histories evil men. Over the years many speculated if former President, Barack Hussein Obama was the anti-Christ. I tried to explain to people who asked me that que! stion,
that he was not smart enough to be that person.

Before President Trump, it took roughly ONE BILLION DOLLARS to get elected President. It took an army of millions of people throughout all 50 states working for a campaign. This incredible machine of money and people is not something a single human being puts together, but instead, is already in place run by a few people whose names for the most part people will never know.

Who are these shadowy figures? They are extremely wealthy and powerful men who are like characters out of a Bond movie. They truly do have designs on influencing the world with their political and social ideology. One of these men is George Soros. Soros is a Hungarian born immigrant worth apx 15 billion dollars. He is a currency speculator, stock investor, businessman, philanthropist, and political activist. George Soros is also an avowed atheist and a tool of satan who opposes God at every turn.

Soros is best known in political circles for! his
funding of groups like MoveOn.org, the Center for American Progress, America Coming Together, and many other pro-Democratic and ultra-liberal groups. Soros spent tens of millions and worked tirelessly behind the scenes through various groups he funded to insure Barack Hussein Obama would win the Presidency in 2008 and 2012. He advocates an extreme liberal and socialist ideology that is a match made in heaven for those with an extreme liberal and socialist political view.

One of his current political “projects” is electing local prosecutors all over the nation. He is swamping with money local races for prosecutors, backing his candidates with 3, 4, 5x the money these types of races would normally be funded with. The purpose? The people he is backing or anti-law enforcement with a radical agenda to get rid of cash bonds and most alarming, using prosecutorial discretion to NOT even charge cases of theft, drugs, and many other types of crimes. The goal of course is! to turn
local jurisdictions into crime-free zones where people can commit many different crimes and not face prosecution!!!

While millions of Americans suffered during the economic crisis of 2008, NOT George Soros. It is estimated he has profited at least 1 BILLION dollars by shorting the markets prior to that crisis. Many claim he has pursued the destabilization of the dollar and the move towards socialism to not only profit handsomely, but see his socialist political ideology advanced. He has singe handedly helped influence more than any one man the political direction this nation has taken.

On top of his political involvement, Soros is an avowed enemy of God. He helps fund with his billions efforts to slaughter babies through abortion around the world, euthanasia, legalizing drugs, the radical homosexual agenda, and atheism groups. Soros is determined to use his great wealth to try and fight God and the Truth of the Bible at every turn.

Sadly in our current wor! ld, it is
the tools of satan like Soros, who have had a greater negative impact on our culture than men of God who have invested in the Kingdom. While they have bought their favorite preachers planes and mansions, built buildings, and help fund the Christian trough, Soros has used his wealth to reach the masses in the marketplace with the lies of satan!

My personal thoughts are that while it is possible the anti-Christ is alive today, we still don’t know who it is. However, as I shared over the years, the current global economic crisis in many parts of the world could easily lead to a one-world economic system. That of course give rise to a one-world government, followed shortly by a one-world religion. That will also give rise to the anti-Christ which will oversee it all as the last days of human history unfolds My friend, all of this, once thought not even remotely possible in our lifetime, is now not only very possible, but very probable!

I love you and care about you s! o much.
The challenge of this message today is that time is very short, the end is not that far away, Jesus is coming at any moment. We have a brief, a very brief window left to see the glory of God once again before the final chapter of human history unfolds. We are living in the last days. This is our time to make our lives count for Christ and all eternity. May the Lord find us faithful at His coming!!!

Let me leave you today with the Biblical passages that lay out the characteristics of the anti-Christ.

1. He comes from among ten kings in the restored Roman Empire; his authority will have similarities to the ancient Babylonians, Persians, and Greeks [Daniel 7:24; Rev 13:2 / Daniel 7:7]

2. He will subdue three kings [Daniel 7:8, 24]

3. He is different from the other kings [Daniel 7:24]

5. He will speak boastfully [Daniel 7:8; Rev 13:5]

10. He will not be succeeded by another earthly ruler, but by Christ [Daniel 7:26-27]

11. He will confirm a covenant with “many”, i.e. the Jewish people [Daniel 9:27] This covenant will likely involve the establishment of a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem [see Dan 9:27; Matt 24:15]

12. He will put an end to Jewish sacrifice and offerings after 3 ? years and will set up an abomination to God in the Temple [Daniel 9:27, Matthew 24:15]

13. He will not answer to a higher earthly authority; “He will do as he pleases”[Daniel 11:36]

14. He will! show no
regard for the religion of his ancestors [Daniel 11:37]

15. He will not believe in any god at all [except for himself] [Daniel 11:37]

16. He will have “no regard for the desire of women”: He will either be asexual or homosexual [Dan 11:37]

17. He will claim to be greater than any god [Daniel 11:37; 2 Thess 2:4]

18. He will claim to be God [2 Thessalonians 2:4]

19. He will only honor a “god” of the military. His whole focus and attention will be on his military. He will conquer lands and distribute them [Daniel 11:39-44]

20. His arrival on the world scene will be accompanied by miracles, signs and wonders [2 Thess 2:9]

21. Either he, or his companion [The False Prophet], will claim to be Christ [Matt 24:21-28]

22. He will claim that Jesus did not come in the flesh, or that Jesus did not rise bodily from the grave [2 John 7]. He will deny that Jesus is the Messiah [I John 2:22]

23. He will be worshipped by many peop! le [Rev.
13:8]

24. He will hate a nation that initially will have some control over his kingdom, but he will destroy this nation [Rev 17:16-18]

25. He will appear to survive a fatal injury [Rev. 13:3; 17:8]

26. His name will be related to the number six hundred and sixty six-but not necessarily in an obvious fashion [Rev 13:17-18].

27. He will be empowered by the devil himself [Rev. 13:2]

In His love and service,

A challenge regarding your family!!!

Leave a comment

(1 Timothy 5:8)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help me to be a good father, mother, son, and/or daughter today. It is no accident who our family members are, and You have given me these special people to bless my life, and for me to bless their life. Lord, today I pray for those members of my family who have not made a decision to come to You by faith, and I pray for their salvation. Help me, others You place in their life, to open their heart to Your love and make that decision to accept You by faith. Thank You for my family and I ask your blessings on each one of us today. In Jesus name..AMEN!

For men and women that God has given a great amount of energy and ability to, one of the biggest traps the enemy uses is getting them so focused on daily work, that they neglect other aspects of their life. It is common to minimize and not give enough time to that daily, intimate contact with the Lord that is so critical to anyone who professes Christ as the! ir
Savior.

The other area that suffers is the responsibility to the home. As one who fights this battle daily, I can personally attest to how easy it is to get caught up in our job, our career. It is something that can happen in a very subtle way over a period of time and without any bad intentions or motives. It is a very clever trap of the enemy that I want to expose today and share with you how to avoid at all costs.

The passage of scripture today very clearly lays out how God feels about those who neglect their home. If you notice, there are no exceptions. It doesn’t say you are exempt from being an infidel if you are in the ministry. Or you are exempt from being an infidel if you have an important job. Or you are exempt from being an infidel if many people at work depend on you. men, God was clear and concise that taking care of our home is a major priority in our life…without exception.

I am totally convinced in my own heart, that the reason our societ! y is in
such a bad state today, is because we are now reaping what we sowed, as far as the family is concerned, since the mid-60’s. From the free-love, anti-authority days of the 60’s and 70’s, to the “me-first” 80’s, to the self-indulgence of the 90’s….we now have a generation that grew up without the love and nurturing of two parents.

Whether it be from divorce or parents driven to succeed at any cost, our society now is dealing with the problems of the breakdown of God’s family plan. God tries to tell us in His word, that after our personal relationship with Him, the next priority in our life MUST be our home. There is nothing more important we do each day than operate as the spiritual head of our house.

IT IS OUR FIRST JOB, AND TAKES PRIORITY OVER ALL OTHER EARTHLY JOBS AND PURSUITS.

How do we avoid falling into this trap? The best way I know is a two-fold approach. I HAVE to start each day in prayer and the Word, or it doesn’t happen. It has become a discip! line of
mine over the years. That helps me to zero in on what is really important, and throughout the day gives me the type of God-centered focus I need to keep me where the Lord wants me to be. Having started out that way each day, I then am reminded of my duty as the spiritual head of my home.

To properly operate in that role requires sacrifice and planning on my part. I am very busy. I put in long days. But it is a priority each day to fulfill my role and obligation as the spiritual head of my house, so I plan into my day the things necessary to make that happen. It boils down to time management, planning, and prioritizing. It is funny how we can always find the time to do the things we really want to do, the things that please us.

That simply proves that it really boils down to our priorities. If we follow God’s Word and our home is a top priority, than we will find the time to provide the spiritual leadership in our home God has called us to provide, regardless wha! t else we
do in our daily life.

I know that this is difficult for many to read. For many, you are saying that it sounds good, but it is not realistic in your case. Let me reiterate. It MUST be realistic because it is what God has instructed us to do. Of course, I have not even addressed the issue of single parent homes in all of this, but that doesn’t change God’s command. There are NO exceptions. One thing I have found in my personal journey with the Lord, when we are trying to follow His word, attempting to live in obedience to His commands, He will help us.

I love you and care for you, and am praying that He opens your eyes and heart to fulfill your responsibility to your home each day. Again, there may be sacrifice involved and it may not be easy, but God will strengthen you, give you wisdom, and part the seas to help you follow Him. I pray that you will read these words today, sit down and pray.

Ask God how you can fulfill what He has asked you to do in relatio! nship to
your responsibilities at home. In some cases, you may have to totally readjust your lifestyle. Again, God will help you. There are several passages of scripture that are very strong and very clear. 1 Timothy 5:8 is one of those passages.

In His love and service,

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

Bill Keller

“They are a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God!”

(Philippines 4:15)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, I know I have only one life, one life to live for You. This is my moment in human history. Please Lord, let me make the most if it. Use my life to do great things for You as I surrender it afresh to You each morning. When I take my last breath, let there be no regrets, no sadness, that I didn’t use my life fully for Your Glory! In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

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. He was not ashamed to ask them to help him bring God’s Truth to the world of his day and to save souls! 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 gi! ving 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!

“Bill, please accept the following gift of $5,000 towards your expenses at Liveprayer in memory of my mother who led me to the Lord, along with my apology for not doing this sooner. My wife and I have been reading your Daily Devotionals for years, and have passed many of them along to our children. You have been an incredible blessing to us, and usually once or twice a year we have sent in $100 to help you. I recently lost my job as so many have, and have been working 2 different jobs to hold our finances together. God has been merciful and continues to provide. It has allowed me some time to reflect, and each day as I read about the wonderful work you do, sacrificing all you have to reach those who don’t know the Lord, I told my wife it is time for us to step out in faith and make a! n impact
with our lives through the resources God has given to you. Know that our prayers are with you, and we mostly pray for the many like us who can make the sacrifice to stand with you to do so, so you can fulfill all that God has for you and your ministry.”

“Pastor Bill, I’ve been following you for years via the internet and the past year since you have been on TV in the Chicago area where I live. What a joy to put a face to the powerful words you send out each day. I’ve finally given my heart and life to Jesus. I don’t know why it took so long, why day after day I have read your warnings about hell and the peace found in a relationship with Jesus. I finally decided I wanted that peace and joy in my heart. 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 in order that I may grow in my Christian life.”

I made a choice nearly 30 yrs ago when I answered God’s calling to the ministry, that! I was
never going to seek funds for my own needs, or to build my own kingdom, only to bring God’s Truth to the marketplace and build God’s Kingdom. I have been faithful to do that month after month without wavering. We are at a critical time in the history of this nation. There is no doubt as I have shared with you that God is removing His hand of blessings and protection from our land. TURNING BACK TO GOD IS OUR ONLY HOPE AND ANSWER!

Like all men, I am of flesh and bone, frail, sin more than I want to. However, in over 25 yrs of full-time ministry I have NEVER sold out the Lord for money despite constant opportunities to do so, NEVER compromised the Truth of God’s Word even when it would have been more comfortable to do so, and by His grace have faithfully been at my post each day giving everything I have in ministering to the needs of those dear people the Lord has brought into the life of this ministry, even if it is through one email or hearing a few minutes of the TV pr! ogram.

I am FAR, VERY FAR from anything close to perfection, but will take my last breath at some point with a clear conscience that no matter what the consequences, personally, financially, will finish my race having served the Lord to my utmost abilities.

I COULD NOT HAVE DONE THAT OVER THESE MANY YEARS, NOR CAN I DO IT TODAY OR TOMORROW WITHOUT YOUR LOVE, PRAYERS, AND GENEROUS SACRIFICE!

The Bible teaches to give according to your ability to give. For some that may be $5, for other it may be $20, for others it may be $50. Still others God has blessed and you can make a sacrifice today of $100, $300, $500, $1,000, or more. Never forget that it is not the amount God sees, but your sacrifice, and He will honor your heart as you obey His voice.

Will you help me today? Will you please take a minute today, and pray, seek the Lord what He is asking you to sacrifice to help me as we boldly stand where virtually nobody else will, in the marketplace declaring His ! Truth as
unpopular as that is today, to help lead this nation back to God and Biblical Truth while leading the lost to faith in Jesus Christ!

I love you and care about you so much. I want you to commit to memory today’s anchor verse from 1 Corinthians 15:57, “But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!” For the 20 yrs since starting Liveprayer.com I have walked by faith, not trusting in the devices of man, but God to move on hearts to help me.

Together we have impacted tens of millions of lives worldwide and over 1.3 million souls we know of will be in Heaven. However, our work is not quite finished, and I need you now more than ever! Know that you and your family are in my prayers each day. Thank you for your love, prayers, and sacrifice as we take our stand in these last days. The time is very short, our time is now! Will you stand with me as we see VICTORY in helping lead a true national revival during this year and lead our nation ! back to
God and His Truth!

In His love and service,

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

Recent major events and news stories in the United States and around the world shaping the culture we live in! Part Two of Three

(John 15:19)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, open my eyes to see this world clearly, and show me what You want me to do to serve You in these times we live. You and You alone will have the last word Lord. Let me see this lost world through Your eyes and with Your heart and help to lead the lost and hurting to find Your hope, strength, and peace! In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!!!

Part Two of Three

“…but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world…” John 15:19

The world we are living in for this season. Today is Part One of a very special 3-PART Daily Devotional series on recent major events and news stories in the United States and around the world that are shaping the culture we live in today.

It is critical for Christians to clearly understand the culture around us so that we can be the Lord’s agents of change as He has commanded us to be. May the Lord guide us each day by His Spirit as w! e faithfully
serve Him!!!

*Mental illness is an issue that this nation MUST begin to address in a serious way. It can no longer be ignored since it is truly an epidemic! Mental health professionals state that 1 out of 5 children have some sort of mental illness, and few EVER receive any sort of treatment!

*A little over 10 years ago, I began talking about robots that would soon be replacing human workers in many industries. We are now seeing that occur even to a larger extent than I had imagined. One use of robots that is already happening, is using robots as “companions” for the elderly. As with most of the advancement in the use of robots, Japan is using robots to interact with older people as a “friend.”

This is an issue I have written about in several Daily Devotionals, as robots are being used as an interviewer for employment, to dispense medical advice, and to counsel people on different issues. Yes, there is actually going to be churches in the ver! y near future
with a robot “pastor!”

*A common these I have been sharing with you over the 20 years of Liveprayer is the fact that currently in 2019 we have the better percentage of the past 2 generations who have never been to church. Studies are now being done by different organizations that confirm church membership is at an all-time low in the United States.

*A Canadian father was fined $55,000 by the government for “mis-gendering” his son. Mis-gendering is not correctly identifying a person by the gender with which they identify. Mis-gendering is an offense that is a violation of Twitter’s rules of conduct and allows them to close your account. Please understand that this “offense” is going to be recognized in many different settings in the United States soon such as in the workplace!

As I have shared in many Daily Devotionals on this issue, a person who “identifies” as the gender opposite of the one God created them as, is dealing with a ment! al illness even though the
World Health Organization just removed “gender identity disorder” from their list of mental health issues!

Former Olympic decathlon champion BRUCE Jenner was born a male, is a male, and will always be a male regardless of what name he calls himself or what type of surgery he may undergo. Bruce Jenner is a MALE. Bruce Jenner is a HE and always has been and will be a HE!

*More states are turning to marijuana to generate income to try and deal with decades of fiscal irresponsibility. All states now offer some form of gambling, more each year are literally becoming drug dealers, and some are in the process of legalizing prostitution. How sad is it that crimes the state used to put people in jail for, they are now legally engaging in!!!

*When you have the favor of God upon you, NOTHING and NOBODY can take you down! Chik-fil-A is now the third largest fast food restaurant. This is despite Buffalo and San Antonio closing the Chik-fil-A restaurants operating! in their
airports because they donate to organizations like the Salvation Army and other groups these cities disagree with. Many colleges have refused to allow a Chik-fil-A restaurant on their campus since the owners of Chik-fil-A believe in Biblical marriagte!

God has honored the faith of the Cathey family, and that they have refused to compromised their Christian faith. One huge example is that they have always CLOSED on Sundays, just as God rested on the 7th day!

*The magazine Teen Vogue is nothing but pornography geared towards teen age girls. In addition to promoting the killing of innocent babies, this magazine recently featured a huge article stating that prostitution and other sex worker jobs were legitimate and honorable.

*The number one name for boys in Germany last year was “Mohammed!”

*Just as many states have legalized “vice businesses” like gambling, dealing drugs, and prostitution, many are now legalizing not just the slaughter of inn! ocent babies in
the womb, but killing babies who survived an abortion attempt and were delivered alive. To be consistent, they should actually let the late-term abortion monster from Philadelphia, Kermit Gosnell, out of prison since that was the practice he was incarcerated for. Also, Dr. “death” Jack Kevorkian spent many years in prison for helping people take their own life. There is now a growing number of states that have legalized doctor assisted suicide. Even though Kevorkian is now deceased, they should pardon him posthumously!

*Today, we celebrate an historic event that changed the course of history. It was on June 6,1944 that 75,200 troops from Great Britain and Canada and 57,500 troops from the United States stormed the beaches of Normandy on the northern coast of France. Apx. 4,500 US and Allied troops lost their lives on that day that began the liberation of Europe and the fall of Nazi Germany!

President Roosevelt and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom W! inston
Churchill offered up public prayers to the God of the Bible as they led their nations on this historic day and to victory in World War 2!

I love you and care about you so much! Please, don’t miss Part Two tomorrow and Part Three Friday where I will be dealing with a whole range of issues currently in the news that are shaping this culture we are living in. This is a challenge to stay educated about the world we live in but are not part of, in order to the best ambassadors of Christ we can be as we share His love and hope with this lost and hurting world.

Don’t miss Part Three of Three tomorrow!

In His love and service,

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

Bill Keller

*They are building a mega mosque in Sweden. Muslims in Sweden are currently raising funds to build a mega mosque in that country, designed to handle over 1,000 people. The building of these mega mosques is a sign that there is a significant and growing Muslim population, and that they are planning to stay and continue to grow their numbers.

As Muslim migrants poured into Europe from war torn Syria and Northern Africa over the past 5 years, many have migrated into the Scandinavian countries. Some of the nations are actually paying Muslims $10,000 to leave, since in the end it is less expensive than the burden they become on the social service networks. Remember this, not one western nation has ever assimilated Muslims into the life of their country. ZERO!!!

*Pat Robertson continues to say things in his old age that only makes it more difficult for people trying to lead lost souls to Christ and stand for Biblical Truth. Robertson! recently
said that you have to stop believing that “6,000-year-old garbage.” I am well aware that some groups try to reconcile Genesis One to explain an earth that is millions of years old. This is done to try and reconcile findings of fossils said to be hundreds of thousands years old, and millions of years old. Carbon dating used by science to come up with these ages is flawed, since when God spoke the earth into existence, when God spoke man into existence, they were created at a mature age. Unless you know that age which is impossible, carbon dating becomes worthless.

The danger is, when you start trying to force the Bible to reconcile different issues you destroy the Truth it represents. If even one thing in the Bible is not true, NONE OF IT IS TRUE! God stated clearly that he created the world and all that is in it in 6 literal 24 hour days. Again, if you try to start saying “one day” is a million years when that is NOT what God says, you cause everything els! e to come into
question! The Red Sea really didn’t “part” the way the Bible says. Joshua didn’t literally tear down the walls of Jericho marching around them and blowing some horns. Jesus really didn’t raise Lazarus from the dead, he was in a coma.

Do you see not just the danger, the but destruction of the Truth of God’s Word when you start down that slippery slope? Sorry Mr. Robertson, the earth is 6,000 years old…EXACTLY AS GOD SAID IT IS IN GENESIS CHAPTER ONE!!!

*Please be praying for our brothers and sisters in Christ in China. Ever since China’s leader Xi Jinping declared himself the leader for life, there has been a tremendous clampdown on Christianity. Xi incorrectly states that one Chines who is a Christian is one less Chinese. Like dictators throughout the past 2,000 year, Xi fears those who put their faith in something other than the state/government/leaders regime. Actually, Christians are the greatest citizens any government could ask for. W! hile their faith is in
God, they are taught to pray for their earthly leaders and obey the laws of the state.

Sadly, most Christian churches around China are being burned down. Believers are being beaten, jailed, even killed. While the great decision for many Christians in the United States on Sunday morning is to get out of bed and go to church or hit “snooze” and sleep in, our brothers and sisters in China go to their home church gatherings with the understanding they might end up beaten and jailed or even killed.

Also, over 2 million Muslims in China have been rounded up and put into what amounts to concentration camps for “re-orientation.” I will never stop warning people about the dangers of Islam, but I also know Jesus died for each one of them just like He died for you and me. So while we pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ, let us also remember those Muslims being persecuted in China and that they will be reached with the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.

! *I share often
that satan can’t create, only take the perfection of God and pervert it. Sadly, the once great organization that made God a big part of their organization is about to be destroyed. The Boy Scouts have recently been in the news as tens of thousands of former scouts are involved in legal action stemming from their sexual abuse while in the Scouts. About a decade ago the Boy Scouts began to compromise this great organization that was a big part of the growth and maturity of millions of boys, teens, and young adults. It started with accepting boys who claimed they were gay.

Soon afterwards, they started accepting Scout leaders who claimed they were gay. Not long after that they began to accept girls. Like so many churches, once they began to embrace the sins of our culture it was only a matter of time before they would be destroyed. There is no doubt that the large numbers of former scouts claiming to have been sexually abused while in the Boy Scouts, it will ba! nkrupt the

*New Jersey is the latest state to be legalizing euthanasia/Dr. assisted suicide. As I have warned for the past 20 yrs, a nation that embraced death at one end of the life spectrum, would embrace death at the other end of the life spectrum, and soon after that would permeate throughout all age groups. More states are getting on board with this practice that is common place in much of Europe and Scandinavia. We have destroyed the fact that life is precious by legally killing apx. 4,000 innocent babies each day. The value of life at any age is no longer sacred.

*Africa is a continent on fire for Christ like no other place in the world. The proof? Africa is now sending missionaries to Europe and to the UNITED STATES!!!

*The Pope recently fed into the great lie that Christians and Muslims pray to the same God. THEY DO NOT! Christians pray to THE GOD OF THE BIBLE, the Creator of the universe! Muslims pray to a non-existent god. They might a! s well be
praying to a black rock, which is actually what they literally do pray to on their pilgrimage to Mecca.

*The “church” with the most explosive growth percentage wise in the United States is the Church of Satan. This is sadly NOT A JOKE! To fill the spiritual void in the lives of the vast percentage of the past 2 generations who have never been church, they are literally turning to satan. These churches are acknowledged by the IRS as tax-exempt organizations. There is a large and growing market for books, jewelry, and all things satan.

There will always be people who sadly buy into the lies of the cults and other false religions. There will always be people who actually worship satan…literally. However, the growing numbers of people putting their faith in satan should be a HUGE BLACK EYE to Christian churches. We have abandoned evangelism and left those outside the four walls of the church literally for satan to devour!!!

I love you and care abo! ut you so
much! Please, don’t miss Part Two tomorrow and Part Three Friday where I will be dealing with a whole range of issues currently in the news that are shaping this culture we are living in. This is a challenge to stay educated about the world we live in but are not part of, in order to the best ambassadors of Christ we can be as we share His love and hope with this lost and hurting world.

Don’t miss Part Two of Three tomorrow!

In His love and service,

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

The REAL cause of the homeless epidemic in our nation!

Leave a comment

(John 17:31; Romans 14:17; Nehemiah 8:10)

***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!

Why is there an epidemic of homelessness and feral behavior in virtually every big city and many smaller ones across the nation!!! One of the most startling issues facing our nation today is the ever growing population of homeless people in our cities and towns. In places like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, New Orleans, Chicago, and New York, homelessness and feral! type
behavior is a MAJOR PROBLEM!!!

The growing homeless issue is causing tremendous crime problems, open drug use, and animalistic-type behavior. Mountains of garbage, used needles, human waste, and incredible health problems can be found around these homeless enclaves. Attempts to deal with this growing problem are failing as a large percentage of these people don’t even want help!

What is happening that is causing these 3rd world type conditions in one of the richest nations in human history? MENTAL ILLNESS!!! Currently over 60%, by some estimates 75%, of the population in our jails and prisons are people with mental health issues. As our mental health infrastructure has totally collapsed in the past 4 decades, primarily due to privacy laws, there is very little help for people who battle with mental health issues.

It is estimated by mental health professionals that if you are standing in line at the grocery with 9 other people, TWO of the ten literally! should not
be out in public without supervision. TWO OUT OF TEN!!! The homeless issues we are currently dealing with as a nation is primarily a direct result of there not being any real mental health infrastructure and it is only going to get worse!!!

An issue the church and most people refuse to deal with, is the reality of mental illness and depression that so many suffer from. Let me say right up front. Mental illness is just as real as a broken leg. Just because it is not a visible illness, does not mean it is not as real as someone with a broken bone, a bad heart, or any other illness. MENTAL ILLNESS AND DEPRESSION ARE REAL!

I have shared with you in the past that God’s number one instrument of healing is called a DOCTOR. One of God’s chief methods of healing is called MEDICINE. Where do you think the incredible intelligence and the special gift to be a doctor comes from? It comes from God! Where do you think the incredible intelligence, and the inspiration to create ! medicine
comes from? It comes from God!

I want to encourage anyone today that is suffering from any form of mental illness or depression to seek out the best professional help possible. God has raised up mental health professionals and given men the wisdom to create drugs to treat mental illness, so that you can live a normal and productive life. Just like there is no reason to be ashamed to see a doctor if you break your arm, just like there is no reason to be ashamed if you have to take medicine to treat a kidney problem, there is no reason to be ashamed to see a doctor or take the proper medication if you suffer from mental illness or depression!

For many people that are suffering from depression, I want to help you find the joy in life again. Many who suffer from depression have simply allowed the events and circumstances of their life to overwhelm and paralyze them. We learn at an early age how to deal with the day to day issues of life, how to deal with problems. Wh! at
happens to many who are depressed, is they have simply been unable to cope with the things that have happened to them and can’t seem to get past certain problems in their life.

Feelings change all the time. Our feelings are based on our perception of an issue or problem. For example, if you have $20,000 of debt and you are only making $30,000 a year with nothing left over after the basic living needs are met, you might perceive that $20,000 of debt to be a mountain that is impossible to move. If you continue to focus on that mountain, it starts to get bigger, and bigger, and soon your perception is that it is impossible to ever be free from your debt. The longer you focus on the problem, the bigger it becomes and that is when depression can set in. Depression is the result of being hopeless.

However, even though you may have $20,000 of debt and are only making $30,000 a year with nothing left over after your basic living needs are met, you might look at that $20,! 000 of
debt, not as a mountain impossible to move, but simply an obstacle that has to be dealt with. In other words, you don’t focus on the mountain, but you focus on a way to move the mountain. You come up with a plan to retire the debt over a period of time, and instead of letting depression set in due to looking at the situation as hopeless, you maintain a positive outlook since that debt is simply an issue that has to be taken care of. Depression can’t set in where there is hope. Let me say that one more time. DEPRESSION CAN’T SET IN WHERE THERE IS HOPE!

The other part of the answer to depression is serving others. The Bible teaches us that if we will be about our Father’s business, our Father will be about our business. If we will serve others, it is amazing how our own problems become more manageable. If you are suffering from depression, let me encourage you today to get out and start finding ways to serve others. You see, when we serve others, we are serving God. Our ! God-given
purpose in this life is to serve and glorify God with our lives. Depression can’t set in when you are serving others. Let me say that one more time. DEPRESSION CAN’T SET IN WHEN YOU ARE SERVING OTHERS!

I love you and care about you so much. I realize many people suffer from some form of mental illness that is just as real as any other type of illness. I will be praying today that those who are suffering from some form of mental illness, will seek out the best professional help possible and take advantage of whatever medication that is prescribed to treat you. God is still in the healing business, and GOD CAN BRING HEALING TO THOSE SUFFERING FROM MENTAL ILLNESS.

I will also be praying for those of you today who are suffering from depression. The two-fold answer for overcoming your depression and finding the joy of the Lord again in your life, is hope and service. Seeking the Lord to give you wisdom and direction in finding a solution to whatever problems or issues! you are
facing in your life. If you stay focused on Christ, He will give you the hope to get victory over whatever you are facing today.

The other part of the answer is finding ways to serve others. I pray that you will get serious about finding ways to serve others. God has called us to serve others, and when we are doing that, fulfilling our purpose in life, our own problems simply don’t seem as great. When you are busy serving others, you don’t have time to get depressed.

I pray that this word today will be a breakthrough in your life if you are battling with mental illness or depression. God loves you very much. He wants you to have joy in your life, despite whatever trials and tribulations you may be experiencing. That joy comes from knowing Christ as our Savior. When we know Christ, there is no such thing as being hopeless. When we know Christ, we have a desire to serve Him by serving others. It is through Christ that you can have victory over mental illness and
depression!

In His love and service,

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

Bill Keller
