President Obama the Most Pro-Death President in History Celebrated the 38 Anniversary of Roe vs. Wade

Leave a comment

(Psalms 139:13-15; Jeremiah 1:4-5)

As President Obama, the most pro-death President in the nation’s history, CELEBRATED the 38th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that put the federal government in the business of legalized infanticide, we get a classic example in Pennsylvania of this wonderful procedure that takes over 4,000 innocent lives each day in this nation.

A hero to those in pro-choice circles, no call them what they truly are, the PRO DEATH supporters, late-term abortions Kermit Gosnell and nine of his associates have been charged with eight counts of murder and a litany of other charges. The charges stem for the deaths of seven viable late-term babies that were born alive, only to have their spinal cords “snipped” with scissors. The grand jury only had evidence for seven murders, but believed that this stabbing murder of live babies occurred hundreds of times.

I guess my confusion is what do people think happens when an innocent baby is killed? Does it really matter if they suck the baby out with a vacuum cleaner, crush the skull with forceps and pull the body out, or take the baby out of the womb and than kill it? IT IS ALL MURDER!!!

Why is everyone so upset babies were killed at an abortion clinic? What do you think happens in an abortion clinic??? BABIES ARE SLAUGHTERED!!! I am grateful this story has come to the light of day. It shows clearly what happens in these abortion mills. Babies are murdered in these places! What happened in this “clinic” in Pennsylvania, is no different than want happens 4,000 times a day across this nation!!! This pathetic excuse for a “doctor” should be in PRISON FOR MURDER ALONG WITH EVERY OTHER “DOCTOR” WHO KILLS BABIES!!!
Abortion is a big deal. I am getting sick and tired of people telling me to stop talking about abortion. I am getting even more sick and tired of people like Rick Warren and others on the “religious left” who say talking about abortion is too divisive and that we need to stick to issues most people agree on like poverty and AIDS in Africa. I fully understand why people don’t want to talk about abortion. INFANTICIDE is not a pleasant subject! But we can’t just be silent and act like it doesn’t exist, especially when every 24 hours another 4,000 innocent babies are being slaughtered in this nation!!!

I would love to stop talking about abortion. Let’s get the US Govt out of the baby killing business and let each state decide whether they want to kill babies in their state. This will not end abortion, but it will at least not allow men and women treat it any longer like a trip to the dentist to have a cavity filled! It will also cause the adoption industry to be reformed so adopting a child doesn’t require 5 lawyers, 6 years, and the amount of money it costs to by a small home. It will also cause the church to start taking responsibility for putting together programs to help deal with babies that need to be cared for and placed in the home of a loving mother and father.

However, until we get to that place, I refuse to be silent and it is a subject that MUST be talked about. Every time there is some sort of natural disaster with people dying, the news media is all over the story. Any death is sad, but it always makes me wonder why so much is made of 5, 10, 50 people tragically losing their life, and nobody even thinks about the fact that every 24 hours we murder apx 4,000 innocent babies in this nation.

I am virtually certain that there are only a handful of people out of the several million who will read these words today, that even stopped for a second to reflect that in the last day we killed 4,000 babies in this country. We have become so desensitized, have come to accept abortion to the point we don’t even think about it any longer.

Here is why abortion IS a big deal. Did you ever wonder if there is a correlation between the fact we started to legally kill babies in this nation in 1973, about the same time we began to see a massive spiritual decline in his nation? Coincidence? I think not! Just like in our individual lives, our nations blessings are tied to our obedience to God. Legally killing babies is a big deal since how can we ever expect God to bless a land that is flooded with the blood of incident babies?

I know that it is not politically correct to talk about abortion any longer. Sadly, very few nationally known pastors will EVER talk about this issue. It is bad for their business. Those who now make up this growing group known as the religious left who fill their churches with the seeker/purpose driven/emerging church watered down message don’t like this issue since it hurts their marketing efforts for warm bodies. Except for a handful of brave Catholic bishops and priests, you hear virtually nobody in the marketplace taking a stand against this blatant act of murder.

I have been saying for years that this one issue alone is enough to bring down God’s wrath and judgment on this nation. Sadly, President Bush squandered our last real opportunity we may ever have to deal with this issue politically. President Obama is a stanch defender of the practice of infanticide. He is a hero to those in the pro death movement. The business of killing babies around the world has flourished under Obama.

Those who defend him state that it is the law, that he is only upholding the law. The fact is, he has voted 100% of the time during his political career to uphold the legalized killing of babies. If he truly believed in life, he could have voted to make abortion illegal and work towards that end. I contend that any politician who votes to uphold abortion has the blood of innocent babies on their hands and is truly an evil person!!!

As a side note. For those in the pro death movement who want to make believe this is about women’s health rights, that is a bunch of garbage. This is about the LIFE OF A HUMAN BEING! I agree a woman has the right to do whatever she wants with her body, BUT NOT THE BODY OF SOMEONE ELSE! That baby may be inside her, but it is still a separate human life created by God!

I love you and care about you so much. I refuse to be bullied into silence on what is by far the most critical spiritual issue there is. You simply can’t close your eyes and act like this brutal act of murder doesn’t exist. I see the Hollywood crowd and people who normally spit in the face of God get so upset about the atrocities in Darfur and other places on the globe. Why aren’t these same people as upset with the fact every 24 hours we slaughter 4,000 innocent babies??? Where is their outrage about that???

On the Liveprayer.com homepage, we have a special 55 second video clip of an actual abortion being performed. If you have not watched it, YOU MUST! This is what happens to over 4,000 innocent babies EVERY DAY in this nation! Since God led me to get this footage and put it on the website nearly two years ago, we have had over 3,000 emails from women who were contemplating having an abortion, watched the video, and changed their mind (Watch the incredible testimony of baby Delilah also on that same link). http://www.liveprayer.com/aborsion.cfm

Despite the several death threats and scathing emails I get every month just from having that video on my website, I want the world to see what really happens to millions of babies here in the United Sates and around the world every year. Abortion is a big deal since it not only kills 1.5 million babies in this nation alone, but it is already bringing down the wrath and judgment of God on this nation for practicing infanticide, unless you are as spiritually blind as our leaders in Washington who think they can fix the problem.

The only way to fix the problem is to stop killing babies and turn back to God and His Truth!!!

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

Outside of John 3:16 the Most Important Verse in the Bible is Romans 12:2

Leave a comment

(Romans 12:2)

I am convinced that outside of John 3:16, the most important verse in the Bible is Romans 12:2. You see, the foundation of who we are and the decisions we make that leads to our actions, come from our mind. This act of renewing your mind becomes the most important task a new believer has, and not doing so is the number one reason people backslide.

Think about it this way. The things you see and hear go into your memory. The more you do something, see something, hear something, the more of your memory is taken up by those things. For example, those who are into pornography have a tremendous problem kicking that problem.

Why? Their memory banks are full of the images and sounds. Just looking at an attractive person can trigger those memory banks into full action. You see, before we get saved, most spent many, many years filling their memory banks full of ungodly content. When a person accepts Christ, those memory banks are still full of that content.

The renewing of a person’s mind needs to become one of the very first priorities in their new life with Christ. All of the ungodly content did not get there overnight and it does not leave overnight. It is a process. The process involves replacing the existing ungodly content with new Godly content.

That is why reading the word is so important. God’s Word acts as a spiritual detergent as it replaces the garbage in your mind with God-inspired content. That is why it is so critical what you watch, what you listen to. What is in your mind ultimately manifests itself in your day-to-day decisions and actions.

The reason most new believers fall away is that they never successfully clean out the old thoughts and information in their mind with clean God-inspired information. It is similar to programming a computer. The computer basically does exactly what the program says. Your mind reacts based on the program that is in your mind. If that program is full of ungodly information, you have a big chance of being involved in ungodly activities. If it is God-inspired content, then you are more likely to be involved in God-honoring activities.

This basic concept of renewing your mind is the most important process any believer can go through. Many have been walking with Christ for many years, yet have never really totally cleaned out their mind. They have learned how to compartmentalize their mind and keep the ungodly content in a back closet, hidden away in the back. But trust me, not dealing with that closet will ultimately result in major problems in your life at some point.

I am praying and fasting today that this powerful message straight from the throne room of God will make an impact on your life. This is a message that needs to be printed out and passed around to your friends, associates, schoolmates, bible-study, Sunday school, and hung on bulletin boards in churches.

Not enough sermons are preached on this most basic issue that is the cause of so many of God’s people falling away. My prayer is that you will sit down after reading this, and ask yourself what is in your mind that is not God-honoring. Then make an effort to spend each day cleansing your mind.

Don’t forget, the cleansing process is only part of the problem. You then have to KEEP IT CLEANSED by not putting ungodly content back in. This battle is won or lost in your mind. Realize that your mind is the battle zone and treat it accordingly. PROTECT IT!!!

I love you and care about you deeply. I am fasting and in prayer today, asking God to let this Word today find it’s way into many hearts and lives. This is critical to our ability to serve God and is a war that must be won. God will help you. God will strengthen you in this renewal process.

Recognize it’s importance and begin this process today of renewing your mind so that you can be the best servant for the Kingdom possible, and know the joy, peace, and blessings this life has to offer. It won’t happen overnight, it is a process…day by day. Your number one weapon is His Word. Start the process today. It will change your life.

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

My Number One Goal is to Bridge the Gap between Our Unseen Fiath and the World We Live In

Leave a comment

(Proverbs 8:11; James 1:5)

One of my number one goals every day is bridge the gap between our unseen faith and the very real world we find ourselves living in each day. If there is one area the church as a whole has failed in, and why so many find little relevance in many churches, is because of the failure to take the very real day to day life experiences we have and put them in the context of our faith in the Lord. As you know, if you have read many of my Devotionals, I will not back off even the most controversial issues, since it is usually THOSE issues many struggle with and need spiritual guidance in. One of those issues is Internet romances.

I discussed in the past the trap of chatrooms and how easy married people fall into sin in this area. Today however, I want to address those who are single, and the wisdom of Internet romances. First, there is NO SCRIPTURE that says “thou shalt not have an Internet romance.” The spiritual application here is from a standpoint of wisdom and discernment. After all, it is God who gives us wisdom, and like all gifts He gives, we are to use it.

I realize that there may be some of you reading this Devotional right now that met your spouse over the Internet, you developed a spiritual foundation in your relationship, dated over a period of time, had confirmation in both of your lives from God that this was part of His plan for your life, and have a very healthy and happy marriage. ***There are always exceptions! However, I can tell you from dealing with this issue over the last 48 months, having seen tens of thousands of emails from men and women, Internet romances are NOT a good idea!!!

You have two basic problems with Internet romances. First, is the distance factor. Second, is the fantasy problem. The problem with long distance romances is the fact that without being in the physical presence of a person, it is very difficult to develop any chemistry, develop a bond, and really get to know each other well enough to make a wise decision on whether this is really a lifetime relationship.

Again, I know there are many examples where two people have made it work, but trust me, those are exceptions and not the rule! Two people who potentially may spend the rest of their life together, need a period of time to see if they can build a spiritual foundation to their relationship, to see if they can communicate, to have the time to be able to properly hear from God about His will for them. There is NO substitution for spending time together.

With the Internet, you have a blend of fantasy and reality. When your main form of communication is email, Instant Messages, and chatrooms, you are in a blended world. You build a mental image of who this person is with little basis in reality. Of course, via email, they are PERFECT. They literally become to some extent, a creation of your imagination. This is NOT healthy and extremely dangerous!!!

Some of the frequent problems I encounter daily in regard to this issue are these. Many of the “single” men and women you are dealing with are NOT single, but married. Of course, you don’t find out about this until you are very well into your cyber relationship. Another major problem is no matter how spiritual your conversations may be, at some point, sex enters into the mix. This often leads to involvement in cyber sex, usually advances into phone sex, and commonly ends up in the real thing.

The biggest problem however is at some point the “relationship” advances to a point where you actually meet each other in person. Usually you have had many months of contact with this person, you have created in your mind who this person is, and there is incredible thrill and anticipation in actually meeting ‘real time.” Many men and women are predators and use the Internet to find their prey. Because you DON’T really know them since you have never spent any time together, since you have fantasized who this person is in your mind without really knowing for sure, you have left yourself wide open to incredible problems.

I love you so very much, and I really do care about you. After these 48 months you are like part of my family. The things I have shared with you today come from dealing with real people, many who have had their lives turned upside down from Internet romances. I realize many of you are lonely, and thus you become easy prey for those men and women trolling the Internet for someone to take advantage of.

But you are not using wisdom, and playing a very dangerous game. The end result of most of these situations range from people being used sexually then dumped, people being taken advantage of financially, marriages that end in divorce, and in one case…death. Internet romances are NOT a good idea. They are not wise.

You are much better served doing it the old fashioned way. Meeting someone in a real face to face meeting. Dating. Building a spiritual foundation together. Ultimately, putting yourselves in a situation where God can confirm to both of you that this is part of His plan for your life. God is the one who gives us wisdom. In regard to Internet romances, use wisdom and don’t get involved in one!

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

Imam Feisal Rauf Will Never Build a $100 Million Mosque at Ground Zero

Leave a comment

(2 Corinthians 11:14,15)

Six months ago, I shared with you that Imam Feisal Rauf was little more than a con artist and would never build a $100 million super victory mosque by ground zero. Last week, it was announced he was no longer part of the project, and was being replaced by Imam Abdallah Adhami. Adhami is simply the new figurehead for this project that is primarily about the Islamisation of the United States. What I wrote seven months ago is even more relevant today, in light of the fact Rauf is no longer part of this project.

The real story of the Imam of the “victory mosque at ground zero,” Feisal Rauf, and the Islamisation of the United States! As God led us seven months ago to create the “9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero,” as a bold, visible, and ongoing response to the proposed victory mosque near that hallowed ground, I quickly educated myself on the people who owned the building, the leader of this new proposed mosque, as well as the deeper issue of the strategy Muslims were incorporating in the United States to become a significant part of the mainstream culture.

After 17 weeks of Sunday services at the “9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero” at the NY Marriott by ground zero, and in preparation for opening our permanent home very soon, I have come to some solid conclusions about the proposed victory mosque by ground zero and the man who was heading the project, Imam Feisal Rauf. The fact is, this whole project has been one huge scam by the real estate developers and Rauf. There will NEVER be a mosque built at that location!

The owner of the building is front man, who just one year ago was waiting tables, and now “owns” over $50 million of New York real estate, including the building they propose to build the super mosque/swimming pool/smoothie bar/community center/inter-faith chapel, or whatever they are calling the project this week. Investigative reporting has uncovered his money man is an Egyptian-born man who has in the past supported terror groups.

Donald Trump defined their intentions when he offered them the price of the building plus a hefty 25% profit, pretty significant in a down real estate market. His offer was flatly refused as not being enough money, and I agree with his assessment that they are simply holding out for someone to buy the building at a ridiculous price to stop the project from going forward. Time will tell whether such a buyer materializes or not, but one thing is certain, the building owners would sell in a moment for a huge profit, and if they ever get such a deal, there will be no mosque built there!

Even if a buyer for the building doesn’t come forward, there will still never be a mosque built in that building. The fact is, Rauf nor Adhami have EVER raised $100 million dollars in their lives and there is nothing to suggest they have the ability to even come close to raising such an amount of money.

Rauf is a confirmed slumlord, based on his legal issues stemming from buildings he owns in New Jersey that have received numerous citations and are currently in litigation by tenants for his failure to perform even the most basic maintenance problems. His third wife, Daisy Khan, is as radical as you will find. This has much to say about his character.

Rauf claims he is a bridge builder. Let me ask you a question. If you were a Muslim and a bridge builder, is putting a victory mosque 600 yards from the site where your Muslim brothers killed 3,000 innocent souls in the greatest act of terror on US soil how you would try to build bridges?

Rauf was out raising money nationally and internationally for his “ground zero victory mosque,” and as I predicted, in the end, either the building will be sold or he will announce that he is abandoning the project for a host of reasons. Of course by this time, he’s raised an unknown amount from the Islamic community as well as sympathizers, and his organization will pocket those funds and move on. That has happened and now we have the new Imam taking over.

There is no doubt in my mind Rauf is nothing but a con artist who has played the United States government over the years, and masterfully used this issue to not only pocket millions of dollars, but up the ante in ongoing goal by Muslims in the Islamisation of the United States. Muslims have actually stolen the playbook from the pro-homosexual movement in the United States, that 30 years ago set as its’ goal making homosexuality part of the mainstream of culture, and has clearly succeeded in that goal.

They accomplished this by creating watch-dog groups who attacked anyone who spoke out against their deviant choice of sexual relations as homophobes, hate mongers, intolerant, and other derogatory names to silence their critics. They infiltrated the media to project homosexuality as a wonderful lifestyle choice. They targeted school children of every age to brainwash them there is nothing wrong with homosexual behavior. They set up political action groups to change and create laws to make them a special class of people with special rights. They have been extremely successful in accomplishing ALL of these goals!

Islam is now following the same road. They have watch-dog groups like CAIR who attacks anyone like myself, Michael Savage, and others who tell people the truth about Islam. They are currently working on infiltrating the media to make Muslims look like sympathetic figures. They are targeting school children of every age to brainwash them that Islam is a wonderful relgion of peace. They have many political actions groups who are working on creating laws to make Muslims a special class of people with special rights.

The problem is this. Islam has a very visible and documented 1400 year history of propagating hatred, violence, and death. This is indisputable. Since 9/11, there have been nearly 16,000 acts of terror worldwide committed by Muslims. Since 9/11, all of the thwarted acts of terror here in the United States have had one common thread, ISLAM. Many argue Christian commit acts of terror like the bombing of abortion clinics. The difference is that when people commit those acts in the name of Christianity, they are acting in opposition to what the Bible teaches, however when people commit acts of terror in the name is Islam, this is EXACTLY what the Qu’ran teaches!

Sharia Law that governs Islam, is archaic and barbaric. However, you will never hear Rauf or any Muslim denounce Sharia Law. You will also never hear any Muslim leader denouncing the never ending acts of terror around the world, only excuses for why those acts are carried out, much like Rauf called the United States complicit for what happened on 9/11.

Over the 1400 year history of Islam and according to the Qu’ran, Islam has always had the goal of turning every nation on earth into an Islamic nation. If anyone doubts this goal regarding the United States, you better wake up. Of course they will all deny this is their ultimate goal, but this is NOT what they teach in their mosques. By the way, there is no Islam in Malaysia, Islam in Iraq, Islam in Pakistan, and Islam in the United States. Islam is Islam everywhere in the world, and to be lulled into sleep thinking there is some “peaceful,’ or “moderate” form of Islam that is taught here is pure foolishness.

I love you and care about you so much. The bottom line is in the end, the owners of the building where the proposed victory mosque is to be built and/or the new Imam will walk away one day soon with millions of dollars. There will be no victory mosque by ground zero. That has all been a cleverly orchestrated con game by Rauf and the owners of the building and their new Imam front man. By the way, they are free to sue me for libel or slander if they feel anything I have said is not 100% true, but I won’t be holding my breath for that to happen.

Fortunately, the Islamisation of the United States has just begun. We can either sit back and watch it happen, or speak out and not let this religion of hatred, violence, and death become a dominate force in our culture. That will remain to be seen. As a Christian, and one who ministers to over 2.4 million people worldwide daily, I can only close by saying that we must continue to share with this lost world the hope and love of Jesus Christ and let all people, including the 1.3 billion worldwide who have bought into the lies of Islam, that faith in Jesus who was and is God, is the only hope for each man and for our world.

***(an email I got the other day) “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 @ Ground Zero. My wife & I gave a gift today which isn’t close to meeting your needs or requests, 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 head into the last 10 days of January, we still need to bring in $30,000 to cover our monthly operating budget. In addition, we need to start raising the funds to open the permanent home of the “9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero,” that includes airing the Liveprayer TV program on superstation WWOR in the New York City media market.

The key is the $500,000 we need by the end of this month, $90,000 of that is needed right away. After praying, the most efficient way to get this initial amount in on time is to break it up into 100 $5,000 units. So far, we have had 10 units committed. In addition, one dear friend can only take 1/2 unit and is looking for someone to take the other half. Another friend of the ministry has issued a challenge to match the next 3 units. That means your unit will be doubled!

We will be placing a gorgeous plaque in the lobby of the new center with 100 engraved leafs, each one in honor or memoriam of someone special in the life of the person giving the $5,000 unit for that leaf. Also, for a special gift of $100,000, we will name the new chapel in honor of a person the donor designates.

In addition, I need 100 people to give a gift of $1,000 for the “9-11 Memorial Prayer Room.” We will also have a special plaque there with 100 leafs engraved in honor of the person the donor designates.

—>Lastly, to help cover the construction costs of the new “9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero,” we have 10,000 bricks that people can personally engrave for $100 each, that will form the main walls of the sanctuary where souls will be saved, and a nation will be turned back to God and His Truth!!! This is an incredible opportunity to honor someone you love, and memorialize them at a place millions of people will visit, and God will use to bring revival to this nation!!! To get 1 or multiple personally engraved bricks, please go to: http://www.liveprayer.com/brick

I am asking you today to pray about taking 1 or more of the units we are offering, or at least one engraved brick. I realize for many this could be an incredible sacrifce, but when have you ever had the opportunity to be part of something that can literally change the spiritual direction of this nation???

HOW MUCH GREATER IS IT TO GIVE TO A PROJECT THAT WILL GUARANTEE TO BRING GOD’S TRUTH TO THE MARKETPLACE, GIVE HOPE TO THE HURTING, SALVATION TO THE LOST, AND HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO TURN THIS NATION BACK TO GOD AND HIS TRUTH???

NOW IS THE TIME AND THIS IS THE OPPORTUNITY WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR!!!

Obviously, anyone who is able to give a gift of any amount is encouraged to do so. The Bible tells us to give according to our ability to give, and for some that may be just $5, for others it could be $50,000. I am asking everyone to do your best to help me between now and the end of the month.

However, I am asking you to pray today about helping me with at least one of the $1,000 or $5,000 units. I know there are people reading this right now who have the ability to make that special one-time sacrifice between now and the end of the month!!!

***To make a special gift to the 9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero, you can send your gift to Liveprayer on your major credit card at our website http://www.liveprayer.com under the “Donation” button, or you can give from your PayPal account by using my email address, bkeller@liveprayer.com , or you can mail it to: Liveprayer, 6660 46th Avenue North, St. Petersburg, Florida 33709. One the credit card or PayPal form after your name simply mark (9-11). Also, in the notes section of your check mark (9-11). This will insure all of the gifts towards this special projects go to that cause. All gifts to Liveprayer are 100% tax deductible.

—>I really need several people who have the ability to help me today. If you can overnight or wire to our bank $5,000 or more, please contact me for the instructions at: bkeller@liveprayer.com

Thank you for making the sacrifce to stand with me as we lead this nation back to God and HIS Truth!

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

Are You God’s Friend or God’s Enemy

Leave a comment

(1 Corinthians 15:1, 58,16:13, 2 Corinthians 1:21, 24, Ephesians 6:11,13, Philippians 4:1)

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

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

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

Let me tell you another way you become a friend of the world and an enemy of God. Listen carefully, since this is how most people become an enemy of God and they don’t even realize it. The Bible tells us in James 4:17, “Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.” This is known as the sin of omission. This is the sin most followers of Christ are guilty of. The reason so many fall into this sin is simply because they don’t have the courage to take a stand for the Lord. They refuse to take a stand for the Lord in their personal life, they refuse to take a stand for the Lord with their family and friends, and they refuse to take a stand for the Lord where they work, go to school, recreate, and out in the marketplace. When you refuse to take a stand for Christ you have become a friend of the world and an enemy of God!

Do you think that is kind of harsh? Well, answer this question for me then. How come those who love the world and live in rebellion to God, His Truth, and Jesus Christ never seem to have a difficult time taking a stand for what they believe? Those who promote the sin of homosexuality certainly have no problem taking their stand. Those who promote the slaughtering of innocent babies certainly have no problem in taking their stand. Those who produce and distribute pornography certainly have no problem in taking their stand. Those who destroy people’s lives with gambling certainly have no problem taking their stand. Those who promote the different cults and false religions and are leading people’s souls to eternal damnation certainly have no problem in taking their stand.

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

Listen, I know that taking a stand for Christ in the year 2011 is not popular. The reality is it has NEVER been popular since we live in a world that has rejected our Lord! You are subjected to ridicule, scorn, hatred, you are called every horrible name in the book, and will be attacked, even physically. Who wants that? I sure don’t, I know you don’t, and I am certain even Jesus in His humanity didn’t. However, Jesus was ridiculed, scorned, hated, called every name, attacked, even tortured and than crucified for taking His stand for God! You see, our Lord knew that you were either a friend of this world or a friend of God. You can’t be both. He chose to be a friend of God in the choices He made each and every day, and He chose to be a friend of God when it came time for Him to take his stand for God. He is our example and the one we are to emulate.

The reason a sin like homosexuality is now accepted in our culture is because those who support this sin refuse to back down, while the followers of Christ have chosen to be a friend of the world. The reason cults like Mormonism and Scientology are growing is because those who support these cults refuse to back down, while the followers of Christ have chosen to be a friend of the world. The reason a false religion like Islam has over 1 billion followers around the world is because those who support this false religion refuse to back down, while the followers of Christ have chosen to be a friend of the world. The reason you have the blasphemous, anti-God trash on TV 24/7 is because those who run the TV networks refuse to back down, while the followers of Christ have chosen to be a friend of the world.

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

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

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

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

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

Why does Pastor Rick Warren Associate with Men and Women who Oppose God

Leave a comment

(2 Corinthians 6:14-15)

Why does Pastor Rick Warren continue to associate himself and his church with men and women who oppose God, reject the Bible as Absolute Truth and faith in Jesus Christ as the ONLY way to be saved??? For years now, I have been asking these questions about this high profile pastor who insists at every opportunity to associate himself with men and women who are not Christians, and actually brings them into his pulpit to speak to his church. His latest effort is called the “Daniel Plan,” designed to help people lose weight and get in good physical shape.

This is a noble effort on the surface, until you find out that the medical experts he is bringing to his church are Drs. Mehmet Oz, Daniel Amen and Mark Hyman. Oz, host of the Emmy-winning “Dr. Oz Show” and professor of surgery at Columbia University, says he is inspired by Emanuel Swedenborg, an 18th century cult founder who taught that all religions lead to God and denied orthodox Christian beliefs such at the atonement of Christ for sin, the trinity and the deity of the Holy Spirit. Best-selling author Amen, a professor of psychiatry at the University of California at Irvine, teaches Eastern religious meditation and the New Age energy-based practice of Reiki. Hyman, a four-time New York Times best-selling author, promotes mystical meditation based on Buddhist principles.
WHY WOULD A CHRISTIAN PASTOR OF A CHRISTIAN CHURCH BRING TOOLS OF SATAN LIKE THESE 3 MEN INTO HIS PULPIT AND CHURCH????

The real hypocrisy is Warren using non-Christian men like these under the banner of a “Daniel Plan.” If you study the life of Daniel, the one thing that you realize is that Daniel was a man who refused to compromise the Truth of God. He put his very life on the line, as did the 3 Hebrew children, Shadrack, Meshack and Abendigo, in order to follow God. THEY REFUSED TO COMPROMISE…EVEN IF IT MEANT THEIR DEATH!!!

My first reaction when I heard of this was why didn’t Pastor Warren get 3 qualified CHRISTIAN doctors? Or is this simply another publicity stunt to pack his church, at the expense of the Truth of the Bible and the Gospel?

Rick Warren has proven that he has no problem getting in bed with people who follow the false religions, cults, and New Age beliefs in order to advance his global social agenda. While always playing humble and downplaying money, make no mistake about it, Warren’s global PEACE plan was about money and lots of it. He bragged about helping to secure a $300 million deal.

Warren is about being next to people of great wealth and power regardless their personal faith beliefs. It is about achieving power, worldwide power. The spiritual freefall this nation is in is due to Christian leaders like Warren who are more interested in their plan rather than God’s plan, in their words rather than God’s Word, and in amassing warn bodies rather than saving souls.

Warren has often allowed into his church those who deny the Truth of the Scriptures, faith in Jesus Christ, giving credibility and a platform to people whose beliefs are totally inconsistent with Biblical Christianity. He has desecrated the alter of his church so often by allowing Godless people to spew their perverted views of life from his platform, that slaughtering pigs on that altar every Sunday wouldn’t be any worse!!!

A few years ago, Pastor Rick Warren addressed a Muslim group, which has terrorist connections, during its annual convention over the Fourth of July weekend in Washington, DC. Warren agreed to appear at the convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and be part of its main session, discussing the convention’s theme: “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” ISNA was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case in 2007.

At one event, Warren told a group of Muslims, “You don’t have to see eye to eye to walk hand in hand.” Listen, Rick Warren is a PASTOR. He is supposed to be a messenger of the GOSPEL. He is NOT a politician!!! The Gospel of Jesus Christ is not something you water down or compromise. It is not about being politically correct because the eternal souls of men are at stake.

There is no “walking hand in hand” with Muslims! They are on the wide road to destruction while born-again Believers are on that narrow road to Glory! Muslims need to understand that they have bought a 1400-year-old lie from hell, and when they die, their souls will burn in the flames of hell for all eternity unless they turn from the lies of Islam and embrace faith in Jesus Christ and the Truth of the Bible!!!

Sadly, Warren rarely deals with these issues because he feels they are to divisive. The fact is, Warren has chosen issues that unite him with every false religion and group that has denied the Bible and faith in Christ in order to pursue his global ambitions, while he fails to even speak out against or deal with the real issues robbing the soul of our nation that are happening in his backyard!!!

I love you and care about you so much. What is the message for you today? Simply this. DON’T COMPROMISE THE TRUTH OF THE BIBLE OR THE PREACHING OF THE GOSPEL! There are no truer words or greater message. Men can come up with clever ways to “do church,” but unless it is based on the Truth of the Scriptures and the Gospel of Jesus Christ, it is a meaningless exercise no matter how successful it may seem from a worldly perspective.

The reason this nation is spiritually bankrupt is because the Truth of the Bible has been compromised and the Gospel watered down. High profile Christian leaders have become that because they are wise businessmen, smart marketers, and clever at manipulating the masses, NOT because they had a passion for saving souls and leading this nation back to God and Biblical values. But fear not, there are many faithful pastors, many men and women who love the Lord who will not compromise the Truth and are part of this last days remnant.

My word for you today is to never worry about what other men may say, only worry about what God will say. He loves you. He cares about you. We show our love for Him by taking our stand each day in this lost world for Him. Your only association with the ungodly is to try to save their souls. The Truth of the Scriptures is never going to appeal to a world that rejects the Bible, but it is the ONLY hope and answer for this world and each lost soul.

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

In the Book of Exodus We Read about the 10 Plagues God Sent on Egypt

Leave a comment

(Exodus 7:14-25)

In the book of Exodus, we read about the 10 plagues God sent on Egypt in order to get Pharaoh to let the children of Israel go. He turned water into blood killing all of the fish, a plague of frogs, gnats, diseased cattle, unhealable boils, hail, locusts, darkness, and the death of the first-born of all humans and animals who did not have marked doorposts. These were physical signs from God to Pharaoh and the Egyptians. Things that only God could do.

Fast forward to today. Over the past months we have seen thousands of birds falling out of the sky in many different locations..dead. We have seen tens of thousands, in one case hundreds of thousands, of fish washing up on shore in different locations…dead. We have seen massive floods in different parts of the world. Most recently, 200 cows were found dead in Wisconsin.

MY FRIEND, ANYONE WHO DOESN’T REALIZE GOD IS TRYING TO GET OUT ATTENTION IS DEAF, DUMB, AND BLIND!!!

Over the years, many scientists have sought to prove the 10 plagues God sent on Egypt could have never happened. However, as they sought to disprove the Bible, they ended up with very logical, scientific explanations how each one of the plagues could have happened exactly as the Bible describes them. While there is scientific proof the plagues could have occurred exactly as the Bible says they did, it still took God to set them in motion.

I know that there are many in the scientific community working around the clock today to find explanations for the dead birds, fish, animals, and floods. I am certain that at some point they will come up with a logical, scientific answer for each one. Again, it still took God to set them in motion! These physical acts that we are witnessing are clearly signs from God to get our attention!

So what is God trying to say through these natural acts we are witnessing? Obviously I don’t know the mind of God, no man does. But I have no doubt that as these last days of human history unwind, as we move closer each day to the return of our Lord and see the final chapter played out, God wants to see “all come to repentance that none be lost.” If nothing else, God is trying to wake people up that the end is very near and now is the time to repent and come to know Jesus as your Savior by faith.

I love you and care about you so much. I know most people are not paying attention. The dead birds, fish, animals, the floods, are simply acts of nature they observe but see no meaning in. I vehemently disagree. There are no coincidences with God. Everything has a reason, even though we may not fully understand that reason. People need to wake up, look up, and realize that there truly is a God who created the heavens and earth, who loves them, and wants to have an eternal relationship with them.

If you have never made a commitment of your heart and life to Jesus by faith, today is your day. It is no accident or coincidence you are reading this today. God is speaking to you as loudly as He is speaking to this lost world through these acts of nature we have been witnessing the past few months.

If you do not have 100% assurance that if your life ends today you will spend eternity with God, the Bible says TODAY is the day of salvation. Please take a few minutes, the most important few minutes of your life, and go to: http://www.liveprayer.com/plan.cfm
Simply ask God to open your heart, read the words, watch the brief video clip, and make the most important decision you will make in this life, the decision to invite Jesus into your heart and life by faith. God is speaking to YOU, and I will be praying for you.

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