What does God Say about Racism

Leave a comment

(Genesis 1:26,27; Deuteronomy 10:17; Acts 10:34; Romans 2:11; Galatians 3:28)

What does God say about racism? Like in all matters of life, when we need the Truth, the real answers, we have to go to our final authority in all matters, the Bible. One of the greatest weapons of satan is division. The enemy has figured out every way imaginable to divide men. Since virtually the beginning of the human experience, man has fallen into satan’s trap of division based on the color of a person’s skin or their ethnic origin. While racism has always been an issue in this country, the fact is it is an issue in every country. This divisive mindset is not unique to the United States. Sadly, in some form it is practiced everywhere on the planet.

Since the racially incendiary remarks by President Obama’s pastor of 20 years, Dr. Jeremiah Wright, became such a big part of the Presidential campaign, it sparked a national dialogue on race. Than Senator Obama, gave a speech on race that was lauded by many. Those who made such a big deal over his speech were most likely swayed by the fact he was dealing so openly with a taboo subject few will talk about. However, his speech was hollow, self serving, and nothing more than a political move to do damage control because of his close association with Dr. Wright.

President Obama’s race speech did NOTHING to help people or this nation deal with this scourge, since the victory over racism isn’t going to come from the flowery words of a politician whose only motive and goal is to get elected President. No my friend, if people and this nation are going to truly get victory over racism, it has got to come from an understanding of what God says about this issue and by people who are willing to follow what God says in the Bible.

If President Obama had intended to really take a leadership role on the race issue, educate the nation and provide real answers for how to get victory over this inhumane way people treat others who are different than they are, then he would have told people what God says about racism. God says MUCH about this issue, but President Obama didn’t find it worth including even one verse of Scripture.

*THIS IS WHY I TELL YOU SO OFTEN THAT IT WILL NOT BE A POLITICIAN, BUT A MAN GOD HAS CALLED TO LEAD PEOPLE IN THE WAYS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS!!!

The fact is, there is only one race, the human race! People may have white skin, black skin, brown skin, yellow skin, red skin, or any other color skin, they may have different ethnic backgrounds, but they are all part of the same race, the human race! The Bible says that ALL MEN are created in the image of God. God created all men equal. I tell you frequently that satan is the great perverter. It is satan, not God, who seeks to divide men by their skin color, ethnicity, financial means, and any other way you can dream up to divide people. God created men equal to live in harmony with one another. It is satan who introduced division into the human experience.

In God’s plan of redemption, there is no division. John 3:16 says that God so loved the world, ALL men. It says that WHOSOEVER BELIEVES. That is a universal call to ALL MEN regardless the color of their skin or where they live. In 1 John 2:2, it talks about how Jesus laid down his life for EVERYONE. Everyone means ALL MEN, the entire human race. This satanically inspired way we have of dividing ourselves through racism, prejudice, and discrimination all make a mockery of what Christ did on the cross. He faithfully and obediently went to that cross to die for the sins of ALL MANKIND.

That is why all of the black pastors I know repudiate the false black liberation theology Dr. Jeremiah Wright has been teaching for over 3 decades. Wright is actually a student of James Cone who made this perverse theology popular in the 60s that teaches the Bible is the basis for blacks to be liberated from social, political, economic, and religious bondage. President Obama is a liar when he stated he never heard the types of comments made by Dr. Wright the media has been playing, since that is the foundational teaching of the black liberation theology Wright has been preaching in Chicago for over 30 years.

The fact is the Bible DOES teach liberation theology, LIBERATION FROM SIN!!! It was not written to people with dark skin, but to all people regardless of their skin color. We are all part of the human race, which means we are all born with the sin of Adam, we all sin during our life, and that is why Jesus went to the cross. He gave His very life on that cross as the payment for the sins of all mankind, that through faith in Him men might be find freedom from their sins. There is nothing in the Bible to support this false black liberation theology Dr. Wright preaches, since the liberation theology of the Bible is about the freedom from sin for ALL MEN!

You also have the Biblical example of Jesus during His earthly ministry. Again, racism is not a new phenomena to the United States in our brief 232 year history. Forms of racism have been part of the human expedience since the very beginning. Jesus commanded us in John 13:34 to love each other as He loves us. He used people of other ethnic backgrounds often in His parables. One of the most powerful is the story of the Good Samaritan. If you remember, the Jewish religious leaders passed by the man who had been robbed and beaten and laying on the side of the road, leaving him to die. It was the Samaritan, the non-Jew, who honored God by stopping and ministering to the needs of the injured man. Don’t forget, it was Jesus who told his followers to make disciples of EVERY NATION, reaffirming the value of all men.

I love you and care about you so much. If President Obama had wanted to give a real speech on racism to move hearts and lead people in this issue, THIS is the message he should have delivered. It would have been a message from God’s Word that laid the Biblical foundation all men are created equal and those who seek to divide men by the color of their skin are not of God, but of satan! It would not have been the self serving, politically crafted words to try and help him weasel out of his 20 year association with a pastor and church that preaches and teaches division based on the color of a person’s skin. Dividing men by skin color, ethnicity, are the works of the devil.

Those who truly seek to serve and follow the Lord are not looking to divide men but unite them. A true follower of Christ understands that God created all men equal, that we are all part of the human race. Racism, prejudice, and discrimination are NOT of God, since we are hurting someone God created and loves and Jesus died for! Sadly, 11 am on Sunday morning is the most segregated hour of the week in this nation. That is truly a shame since the one sanctuary from racism should be the church. Yet sadly, most churches don’t lead the culture, they allow the culture to lead them. So rather than modeling what God says about this issue, in far too many churches, they perpetuate this ungodly attitude men have for other men who look different than them.

They better wake up since when we die, and stand at the gates of Heaven, there won’t be a line for whites, or a line for blacks, or a line for Asians, or a line for Hispanics, or a line for those from the Middle East, just like there won’t be a line for Catholics, or Baptists, or Methodists, or Pentecostals. No my friend, when you take your last breath there will only be two lines. One for those who have put their faith in Jesus Christ and one for those who have rejected Christ. The Bible proclaims those who reject Christ will be cast into the flames of hell for all eternity, and those who know Jesus will be welcomed into their eternal home with God their Creator in Heaven. At that moment, Galatians 3:38 will be realized, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus!”

When I was in School I Remember that only a Very Few Kids in My Class didn’t Go to Church on Sunday

Leave a comment

(Psalms 127:3; Matthew 19:14; Psalms 34:11)

Back in the mid ’60s when I was in elementary school, I distinctly remember that only a very few kids in my class didn’t go to church on Sunday. Well over 90% of my class went to church. Sadly, just 40 years later it is completely the opposite, with well over 90% of children in public school NOT going to church and growing up in homes void of God. We now have the better percentage of two full generations that do not go to church and that live their lives void of God. One of the ways to see that change is by reaching the children with the Truth of God’s Word and the hope and love of Jesus Christ.

The reality is satan has infiltrated the schools with his lies. Lies that your child is gay. Lies that we evolved from pond scum. Lies that there is no God. Lies that there is no absolute right and wrong. Satan is a liar, the father of lies (John 8:44), and he has done a masterful job at telling his lies to YOUR CHILDREN from the moment they step into school, and reinforcing those lies 24/7 through every vehicle possible. Due to the fact most kids are growing up in homes void of God, they are RARELY being exposed to the Truth at all.

Liveprayer is an instrument of God to bring His Truth to the masses. We have been doing that for over 11 years here on the Internet, now reaching well over 3 million people worldwide every day. The fact is that over these past 40 years, satan has erected huge walls around the public schools of this nation. Prayer has been removed and so has Bible teaching. Now the existence of God is mocked, tortured, and impossible theories of how we came to exist are being taught as fact, right and wrong are what you decide they are, and perverted lifestyles are being presented as normal and acceptable. Like the walls of Jericho, these are huge, solid walls that look impossible to tear down. Like the walls of Jericho, God is able to bring them down!

This is critical, since reaching the children for Christ is a major component to seeing this nation turn back to God and Biblical principles. Satan is not shy about going after the children, so why are the people of God? Satan goes after YOUR CHILDREN through those promoting the homosexual lifestyle. Satan goes after YOUR CHILDREN through the cults that openly proselytize in schools. Satan goes after YOUR CHILDREN through the curriculum that is in direct opposition to God and the Truth. Satan goes after YOUR CHILDREN through exposing them to every type of evil and perversion known to man. If satan is so bold in going after the souls of YOUR CHILDREN, why should the people of God be any less bold?

My friend, now is the time to go to war for the hearts, minds, and souls of our children. We have sat back long enough. There is no more time for playing games. While we have been busy building buildings, preaching to ourselves, and enjoying the peace and prosperity of living in this great country, the enemy has been busy these past 40 years insuring that he could control the hearts and minds of the children. Most children are not being raised in homes that honor God or His Son Jesus, and we have simply left them to the enemy. NO MORE! It is time to go fight for the souls of these children!

I love you and care about you so much. God’s way is for the children to learn the Scriptures and to be nurtured in the faith at home. With so many parents who have rejected Christ and His Truth, that of course is not happening. So Liveprayer is going on the offensive the first of the year to insure these kids in public schools hear about Jesus, hear the Truth of God’s Word, and at least are being exposed to the fact Jesus loves them. Please be in prayer as we spend what is left in this year getting everything ready to go. I refuse to sit back and be silent while generation after generation of children go through the public schools of this nation and come out brainwashed against the Christian faith due to the lies that have been drilled into them over the course of their years in school.

I will continue to pray for you moms and dads our there. Over and over I have spoken directly to you how critical your job is in raising their children in the admonition of the Lord. Nothing you do in this life will be as important. I want you to know that I am praying for you today as God gives you wisdom, direction, and strength in the raising of your children and helping to lay that foundation of faith in their lives. There is no more evil in the world today than in the past, it is just more visible and much more accessible. Today more than ever, you need to be diligent in what your children are being exposed to, so that you can insure they know what is right and what is wrong, what is from God and what is designed to harm or even destroy them.

I am committed more than ever to using the increasing reach of Liveprayer to bring His Truth and love to even more people each day. Perhaps no group in this nation is more isolated and blocked from receiving that truth than the kids who go to public schools. But come January that is going to change. I realize that there is nothing anyone can do to stop the lies from being told in the schools, just like there is nothing that can be done to stop the lies being told in the marketplace every day. But just like we aggressively and boldly bring the Truth of God into the marketplace every day, we are determined to take the Truth of God into the public schools so that the children are a least being exposed to the hope and love of Jesus Christ.

For this season, satan is loose. During this brief time, he is out to drag as many souls as he can into the place God created for him to suffer for all eternity. In the end, each person is responsible for their choice to accept or reject Jesus Christ as their Savior. Our job, as followers of Christ, is to bring the Gospel to each person so they clearly understand the eternal consequences of that choice. For too long, children and young adults in public schools have not had the benefit of hearing both sides. Starting this January, we are committed to taking Jesus to the children and young adults in the public schools and making sure they do!!!

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

The Bible Says at the Name of Jesus Every Knee Shall Bow and Every Tongue Confess that Jesus Christ is Lord

Leave a comment

(Philippians 2:10-11)

The Bible says at the name of Jesus EVERY knee should bow, and EVERY tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. The actual Greek in this passage says MUST bow. The fact is my friend, there will come a day in the life of EVERY living person when they will bow their knee to Jesus and confess Him as Lord! The only question that remains is WHEN they will do it.

God has given man the free will to accept His free gift of everlasting life through faith in Jesus Christ, or reject that gift. That is a choice each person must make during their life. The fact is, the Bible warns us that tomorrow is promised to none of us. That is why the Word says TODAY is the day of salvation. The reality is, you may not see tomorrow. So the ultimate choice each living person has to make is to bow their knee to Jesus and confess Him Lord and receive God’s free gift of everlasting life, or reject Christ in this life and spend eternity separated from God.

EVEN THOUGH A PERSON MAY CHOOSE TO REJECT CHRIST DURING THIS LIFE, THERE WILL COME A MOMENT WHEN THEY DIE AND STAND BEFORE GOD WHEN THEY WILL BOW THEIR KNEE TO JESUS AND CONFESS HIM TO BE LORD BEFORE THEY ARE SENTENCED TO ETERNITY IN HELL!!!

When Pontius Pilate died, he bowed his knee to Jesus and confessed Him to be Lord! When Nero died, he bowed his knee to Jesus and confessed Him to be Lord! When Buddha died, he bowed his knee to Jesus and confessed Him to be Lord! When Gandhi died, he bowed his knee to Jesus and confessed Him to be Lord! When Hitler died, he bowed his knee to Jesus and confessed Him to be Lord! When Madelyn Murray O’Hare died, she bowed her knee to Jesus and confessed Him to be Lord! When Mohammad Attah died, he bowed his knee to Jesus and confessed Him to be Lord! When any person dies that has rejected Christ, before they are cast into everlasting darkness they will bow their knee to Jesus and confess Him to be Lord!!!

Sadly, there are many people walking this planet today that have chosen to live their lives in complete rebellion to God and to His Word. They have rejected Jesus Christ in their life and refuse to acknowledge Him for who He is. You can’t force anyone to believe, you can only share with them the Good News and the truth of God’s Word and pray for them to open their heart to that truth. But the fact remains, they will at some point bow their knee to Jesus and confess Him to be Lord.

I love you and care about you so much. For those who have already bowed your knee to Jesus and confessed Him to be Lord, you have the assurance of everlasting life with your Savior when this brief journey here is over. That is why no matter what may be happening in this world, we can never lose sight of the fact that our hope is in a better place. Like those heroes of faith we read about in Hebrews 11, we long for a better country, a heavenly one. A place where we will dwell with God our Creator for all of eternity.

For those who are reading this today that have not bowed your knee to Jesus and have not confessed Him to be Lord, I am praying for you. He loved you enough to die for your sins so that you could not only receive everlasting life, but know true joy, true peace, and true abundance in this life as well. I pray that you will take a moment right now and ask God to open your heart and then read the words at this link:

May God richly bless you today and let me leave you with this most beautiful passage of Scripture from the Book of Philippians, “Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death-even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” – (Philippians 2:6-11)

The Killing of Six People in Tucson, AZ was the Work of One Mentally Disturbed Young Man

Leave a comment

(Luke 19:40; Romans 10:14)

The killing of 6 people and wounding of 14 more in Tucson, Arizona last Saturday was the work of one mentally disturbed young man. Period. He and he alone is to blame for this senseless tragedy. I have been waiting all week for one person, just one, to stand up in the national media and clearly state that he wasn’t inspired by Sarah Palin, or the Tea Party movement, or by Rush Limbaugh, or by FOX News, or even by the rhetoric of those on the other side of the political spectrum. No my friend, Jared Lee Lochner was inspired by only one person, SATAN!

In the aftermath of this horrible event, it has come to light that this young man smoked pot virtually every day, while dabbling in the occult and satan worship. We know from the Bible that satan comes to “kill, steal, and destroy.” That is his stated mission. In this secular, godless society we now live in, there are many Jared Lee Lochners out there satan is using for his purposes. We have the better percentage of two full generations living who have never even been in church, an incredible pool of human souls satan will use for his evil purposes before they die and end up for etenrity in the flames of hell.

If you ever needed a real-life example of how far away from this nation is from God our Creator, the memorial service in Tucson on Wednesday night was it. This service started with an Native American witch doctor’s pagan blessing! Are you kidding me? Why not just have everyone stand and point their middle finger in the air towards the heavens? This was followed up by Attorney General Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano reading verses from the Bible. These very people support killing innocent babies, the radical homosexual agenda, and everything God is against, as does our President. And we wonder why this nation is in the spiritual state that it is???

MEMO TO PRESIDENT OBAMA: YOU CAN ASK GOD TO BLESS THIS NATION ALL DAY LONG. BUT UNTIL YOU REPENT, CALL THIS NATION TO REPENTANCE, AND WE TURN BACK TO THE GOD OF THE BIBLE AND HIS TRUTH, THERE WILL BE NO BLESSINGS, ONLY GOD’S JUDGMENT!!!

Today, I want to tell you what the real story is regarding this tragic event in Tucson. It is the further attempts by those who hate God, deny Biblical Truth, and reject Jesus Christ, to silence Christians from speaking out. We are in the last days, Jesus is coming at any moment, now is not the time to be silent, but to speak out boldly and proudly.

I love the interaction in Luke 19 with Jesus and the Pharisees as they were complaining to Jesus about His disciples who were declaring for all to hear His miracles and without shame praising His name! We are His disciples and that is what we should be doing. Telling others how Jesus has changed our lives and praising Him before this lost world we live in. Jesus told the Pharisees that even if all His disciples were silent, the very rocks would cry out!!! My word for you today is simply this. Tell others what Jesus has done for you and boldly declare to this lost world that Jesus Christ is our only hope and our only answer.

Some may ask why we have been commanded to tell others about our faith in Jesus. The answer to that question is found in the book or Romans, in Chapter 10 verse 14 where God’s Word says, “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?”

How can we expect someone to get saved if they have never been told how? How are they suppose to be told how to get saved unless some person tells them? God’s Word is clear that all of those who know Jesus as their Savior have been called to tell others about His love. This is not just the job of the pastor or evangelist, but ALL who call Christ Lord!

Sadly, this message needs to be read by some very high profile servants of the Lord who have no problem declaring Jesus to their church, but are silent when speaking to the lost world. The sad thing is, those in the church have heard how to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, many of the lost souls outside the 4 walls of the church have not. Nowhere does the Bible say we are to only preach to those who are already Christians. It actually COMMANDS us to take the message of Christ to those who are NOT Christians!

I have documented in the past the numerous opportunities Joel Osteen, who pastors the largest church in he United States, has had in major secular media venues to tell people that Jesus is their only hope, their only answer. His desire to sell books is greater than his desire to save souls since time and time again he refuses to declare that Jesus is the ONLY way to Heaven. He even brags that he won’t talk about sin. How can you not talk about sin, since it is our sin that separates us from God?

During the Hurricane Katrina memorial service in Washington’s National Cathedral, Bishop T.D. Jakes gave the message. Here is a man who is famous for being a fiery orator, a powerful messenger of the Gospel, yet on this occasion with the world watching, he refused to tell millions of lost souls that Jesus was the only hope for the victims of Hurricane Katrina, Jesus was the only hope for this world, and that Jesus was the only hope for each one of them. Instead, he delivered a tame, politically correct message that any Muslim, follower of any of the world’s false religions, or even an atheist would be comfortable with.

My friend, listen to me carefully. The only message we have is JESUS. Let me say that again. The ONLY message we have is Jesus. Joel Osteen is just another world-pleasing motivational speaker unless he tells people about Jesus. T.D. Jakes is just another guy who can talk unless he tells people about Jesus. The pastor of your local church is no better than the drunk at the local bar unless he tells people about Jesus. Bill Keller has NOTHING to tell over 2.3 million world wide every day via email unless he tells people about Jesus. YOU have nothing but empty words for people unless you tell them about Jesus. We have no message other than the message of Jesus!!!

I love you and care about you so much. Please join me in praying for the families of those who were killed this past Saturday in Tucson, and for God’s touch on Congresswoman Giffords and the others who were wounded to heal quickly and completely. I want to challenge and encourage you today to become BOLD in declaring Christ to those God has put into your life. Your family, friends, neighbors, those you work with or go to school with, people you recreate with, in addition to the people you simply meet in the course of your daily life ARE THE VERY PEOPLE GOD HAS ALLOWED TO CROSS YOUR PATH, NOT BY ACCIDENT, BUT TO TELL THEM ABOUT JESUS!

Telling others is not an option, it is a commandment for all of those who know the Lord as their Savior. How can we expect someone to get saved unless they are told how. You are the one God has put in their life to tell them how. I pray today that you will hear these words, take this challenge, and begin to make it a priority in your life each day to tell others about Jesus. We have no message other than Jesus, and if we won’t declare His goodness and grace, if we won’t praise His name, the very rocks will cry out!!!

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

Most People Who Live in the Shelter of the Four Walls of their Churches have No Clue How Bad it is in the Marketplace

Leave a comment

(Deuteronomy 13:5; Isaiah 9:15)

MOST PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN THE SHELTER OF THE FOUR WALLS OF THEIR CHURCHES HAVE NO CLUE HOW BAD IT IS IN THE MARKETPLACE. SADLY, I HAVE FOUND TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE SO WRAPPED UP IN THEIR OWN LIVES THEY DON’T REALLY CARE ABOUT THE MASSES GOING TO HELL EACH DAY. EVEN WORSE ARE MEN AND WOMEN OF GOD WHO SHOULD CARE, BUT OBVIOUSLY DON’T SINCE THEY SPEND THEIR TIME PREACHING TO THE CHOIR SO THEY CAN SELL THEIR BOOKS, FILL UP THEIR EVENTS, AND GENERATE MORE MONEY. WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS, THERE WILL BE YOUR HEART. I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW MUCH HEAT I HAVE TAKEN OVER THE YEARS FOR GOING IN THE NATIONAL MEDIA TO EXPOSE OPRAH FOR WHAT SHE IS , A GREEDY WOMAN MAKING MILLIONS SELLING PEOPLE THE “SPIRITUAL CRACK” OF THE DAY. READ A TYPICAL EMAIL I HAVE BEEN RECEIVING AND MAYBE YOU WILL UNDERSTAND MY PASSION! “Dear Mr. Keller, I am responding to your recent comments on the Fox News Network regarding your opinion that Oprah is the “most dangerous woman in the world.” I am a “Course in Miracles” student for some time now, a student of the “We are All One” philosophy. I was born and raised a Christian, but have in the past several years found much strength and faith in the belief that we are all from the same God. I am puzzled regarding your comments, since I am of the belief that one need not be a Christian to get to heaven. It appears that your strong public opinions create more divisiveness on this troubled planet at a time when we need to become more united…that is all humanity, everywhere, united in LOVE with the same God. I have found in my exploration of spirituality that I have gained much more peace than I ever found in my Christian based religion.”

Oprah is selling “spiritual crack” and leading millions of souls to hell! After finding great success pushing the New Age agenda over the years on her TV program, New Age witch Oprah Winfrey is now clearly committing her vast resources to lead millions of unsuspecting souls to hell selling them the “spiritual crack” of the day, New Age teachings. Just like crack, these false teachings make people feel good for a moment but lead them on a path of destruction.

Earlier this year, Oprah began teaching a year-long course on her XM Satellite radio channel, “A Course in Miracles.” A Course in Miracles is allegedly “new revelation” from “Jesus” to help humanity work through these
troubled times. This “Jesus”-who bears no doctrinal resemblance to the Bible’s Jesus Christ-began delivering his channeled teachings in 1965 to a Columbia University Professor of Medical Psychology by the name of Helen Schucman.

Her latest venture in New Age teachings was a 10 week seminar over the Internet when Oprah and best selling New Age author Eckhart Tolle taught from his new book, “A New Earth, Awakening Your Life’s Purpose.” Over 1 million people signed up for this 10 week web cast that led them away from Biblical Truth and faith in Jesus Christ through Tolle’s perverted spiritual teachings. I have told you for years this is the most dangerous woman on earth, and she is clearly now being used as a tool of satan to lead millions of souls to hell with these false teachings she is promoting, while making millions of dollars doing it!

For the 11 years Liveprayer has been around, I have continually exposed this New Age false-hope merchant and warned people of how dangerous she is. If Oprah Winfrey was simply another Hollywood entertainer I could care less about her. What makes her so dangerous is that while her program normally deals with the same subject matter the raunchy Jerry Springer program does, Oprah also deals with the very real day-to-day issues of life and uses her nationally-syndicated television program to tell people how to live. The authority she speaks from? Herself, OPRAH WINFREY!

January 1, she took over the Discovery Health channel and it will be renamed the Oprah Winfrey Network. The programming? 24/7 NEW AGE TEACHINGS!!! Why do you think she won’t interview VP nominee Sarah Palin? It is not because she is backing Barack Hussein Obama. It is because she is scared to death to go one-on-one of a woman of true faith in Jesus Christ. The darkness trembles in the presence of the Light!!!

We are living in a time where the better percentage of two full generations don’t go to church. People still hit those difficult places in life and at those moments they are looking for help and for hope. Sadly, the Christian leaders of our day have abandoned the marketplace and secular television for the safety and prosperity of the “Christian trough.” In so doing, they have left the lost and hurting masses looking for a savior, someone to come along and help them through the difficult moments of life, tell them how to live, and give them hope. To fill this void in people’s spiritual lives, along comes Oprah!

People defend her by saying she is not a theologian or a preacher, she is a talk-show host and entertainer. I agree. However, that is not how she portrays herself or positions herself. She has eagerly cashed in to the tune of over $1 BILLION DOLLARS on being the spiritual guru to over 49 million people a week! The authority she speaks from is what she has determined truth to be, her views on right and wrong, her values and morals, as opposed to the only Truth and authority there is…God’s Word!

Lest you think I have overstated my case and have been wrong all these years, please take a moment to read some quotes from a recent article in the USA Today on “the Divine Miss Winfrey.”

“Over the past year, Winfrey, 52, has emerged as a spiritual leader for the new millennium, a moral voice of authority for the nation.”

“With her television pulpit and the sheer power of her persona, she has encouraged and steered audiences (mostly women) in all matters, from genocide in Rwanda to suburban spouse swapping to finding the absolute best T-shirt and oatmeal cookie.”

” ‘She’s a really hip and materialistic Mother Teresa,’ says Kathryn Lofton, a professor at Reed College in Portland, Ore., who has written two papers analyzing the religious aspects of Winfrey. ‘Oprah has emerged as a symbolic figurehead of spirituality.’ ”

“With 49 million viewers each week in the USA and more in the 122 other countries to which the show is distributed, Winfrey reaches more people in a TV day than most preachers can hope to reach in a lifetime of sermons.”

“In a November poll conducted at Beliefnet.com, a site that looks at how religions and spirituality intersect with popular culture, 33% of 6,600 respondents said Winfrey has had “a more profound impact” on their spiritual lives than their clergypersons.”

“Winfrey called her talk show her ‘ministry.’ ”

“Marcia Nelson says that it’s not going too far to call her a spiritual leader. ‘I’ve said to a number of people – she’s today’s Billy Graham.’ ”

” ‘Our culture is changing,’ he says, ‘as churches are in decline and the bulk of a new generation is growing up outside of religion.’ Instead, they’re turning to the Church of Oprah.”

” ‘People who have no religion relate to her,’ Nelson says.”

It is clearly established that Oprah Wiinfrey views herself as some sort of spiritual leader, and based on the 49 million viewers of her TV program, you can laugh at that notion but can’t ignore the fact she has an incredible amount of influence over tens of millions of lives. Let me be clear. The danger of Oprah Winfrey is that like any cult leader, her version of the truth and her final authority are not from God but from herself! It has been clearly documented from transcripts that Oprah Winfrey may use the name of “God,” and very rarely “Jesus,” and use many “Christian” expressions, but so does the Mormon cult! While she was raised in the Baptist church, she has been a long-time member (though rarely attends) of a very liberal church in Chicago that mixes Christian faith with New Age spirituality, that also happens to be the church of B. Hussein Obama.

Because she has never been married, choosing instead of live for decades outside the bonds of God’s Holy Institution with a man who is not her husband, Oprah has a jaundiced view on this most sacred bond between a man and woman. Oprah embraces the New Age philosophy that there are “many roads that lead to God,” a lie from the pits of hell itself. On her program she promotes and endorses cults like Scientology, Kaballah, those who speak to the dead, psychics, and people of ANY “spirituality.” There is only ONE GOD, the God of the Bible, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and to promote the false gods of this world makes Oprah an enemy of God!

As for the social issues, Oprah condones and supports those who choose to engage in the sin of homosexuality. Oprah is on the record supporting a “woman’s right to choose,” code for slaughtering innocent babies. While she gives lip service to being pro-family, Oprah’s definition of the family is whatever men want it to be, not what God says it is! Again, the truth Oprah espouses comes from her own imagination, not from the only authority and source of Truth there is, the Bible. By going against God’s Word on the key social issues of our day makes Oprah an enemy of God.

I could go on, but there is no reason to. Simply denying the Bible as the only Truth there is, God as the one and only God there is, and faith in Jesus Chris as the one and ONLY WAY to be saved, makes this woman dangerous and a false prophet in every sense of the word. What makes a person a false prophet is that they lead you AWAY from God, Biblical Truth and Jesus Christ. Sadly, those who follow this false prophet, this merchant of false hope, put their eternal souls in peril. That is why I have warned people for years about her and will continue to.

I love you and care about you so much. I know all the Oprah disciples who spend hundreds of dollars to go hear her preach the “gospel of Oprah” at her seminars, buy her books and magazine, watch her faithfully every day, hang on her every word, will run to her defense by pointing out all the good she does. I don’t doubt for a second that Oprah uses some of her billions to help others. That is not the issue. The Mormon cult feeds the hungry, clothes the naked, and visits the prisoners, yet they are still lost and going to hell for rejecting Jesus Christ. The Mafia gives millions to worthwhile causes that help those in need, but that doesn’t make them good people. God’s Word teaches you can’t buy your way into heaven!

So what is the answer to Rev. Oprah? She is locked in. One of the most powerful women in the entertainment business. She is not going away and now that she is at least being honest about her “spiritual guru” status, will become even bolder in trying to position herself as the spiritual leader of the nation. By the way, this is EXACTLY how the anti-Christ will rise to power and the one-world religion will come to be. A charismatic figure who can control the masses and fill their spiritual needs by feeding them a perverse theology that makes them feel good for the moment.

The answer is to take on Oprah just like Elijah took on the prophets of Baal, head-on! In the end, the TRUTH will always win out over the lie. False hope will always give way to true hope. The false prophet will always be exposed when confronted by a true prophet of God. I have told you many times that what we are dealing with is a battle for the souls of men. This is why I am so passionate about the Liveprayer television program being on worldwide. It will be a beacon of light in the darkness of this world for Biblical Truth and lead people to the only answer there is..Jesus Christ!

The reality is, for over 5 years now, night after night I have done on the Liveprayer television program what Oprah does on her program. Deal with the pressing issues of the day, reach out to people who are hurting, and give them answers for their life. The difference? I let them know that I can’t help them and I am not their answer, Jesus is! I deal with the issues of the day not from a worldly perspective but a Biblical one! The answers for the hurting I share are not from my imagination but from God’s Word! The truth I share is not my truth, it is God’s Truth! The hope I give people is not a false hope, but the ONLY hope there is…JESUS CHRIST!

(Sadly, many high profile Christians will go on Oprah’s program and rather than confront her and challenge the false theology she espouses, say nothing so they can sell whatever book they are pushing. David had no fear in taking on Goliath on his own turf. David was a shepherd, not a great man of war like Goliath. I have no fear in taking on Oprah on her own turf. I am an evangelist, not a great television and entertainment celebrity like Oprah. David didn’t need the fancy armor of Saul, only a few pebbles. I don’t need fancy buildings and studios, only a few pebbles and that is why I am asking you at this time to help me. Supply me with the pebbles I need and our God will do the rest!)

The world has always had false prophets, merchants of false hope. Oprah, her creation “Dr. Phil,” Montel, and B. HUssein Obama, are simply some of the more notable ones of our day. I expose them for who they are, talk about them, because they are leading people AWAY from the only Truth there is and AWAY from the only hope there is. Pray for Oprah today. The fact is, Oprah could become a powerful woman of God if she would humble herself before the Almighty, get on her knees and confess Jesus Christ as Lord, and stop preaching the gospel of Oprah but the Gospel of Jesus Christ, stop selling people “spiritual crack,” but give them the Truth of God’s Word!!!

There Are No Coincidences with God

Leave a comment

(Proverbs 16:4, 19:21)

If there is one thing the Bible clearly teaches, it is that there are NO coincidences with God. There are so many outside elements that you have no control over in your life, starting with your birth, ending with your death, and including everything that transpires in between those two events. The reason I want to bring up this issue today, is to give you the confidence and assurance that everything that is happening in your life today is part of His Divine plan for your life.

One of the reasons I stress so much to walk with the Lord daily, be in the Word of God, pray, seek Him each and every day, is so that you will follow His plan for your life. You see, we can bring much unnecessary pain and heartache into our life by exercising our God-given freewill to ignore God and rebel. However,that does not stop God from still being in control. When we are in rebellion, when we are not on the path God wants us to be on, that is when we miss the joy, the peace, and the abundance this life can offer. That is when we are missing the blessings of God in our life.

I want you to understand clearly today that it is no accident you live where you live, you work or go to school where you do, you recreate where you recreate, or shop where you shop. It is no accident the people that are in your life are there. You see my friend, there are NO coincidences with God, things just don’t “happen”. There is a Divine purpose and reason for each and everything that goes on in our life. That includes the good, and bad things.

The natural question becomes, why? In many cases there simply isn’t an answer. Again, holding on to the fact there are no coincidences with God, helps us to build our faith during those times when there are more questions than answers. It also should give us the confidence and boldness to go out each day, knowing that God has a reason for everything we are experiencing in our life. Understanding what we are going through each day is not an accident, but part of His plan gives us the incredible freedom to live each day for Him.

I realize that many of you are going through difficult times in your life today. You are dealing with death, illness, financial difficulties, marital problems, issues with your parents or children, challenges at work or school, the walls seem to caving in all around you. How this could be part of God’s plan may seem beyond comprehension. This was the same place a man named Job found himself at one day. In spite of everything, he never lost his faith in God, and it was part of God’s plan to bless him abundantly.

We never know how God will deliver us from trouble, how He will bless us. Our job is to hold on to our faith, continue to praise Him in spite of the problems we face, and know He will never leave us or forsake us. The Bible tells us that there will be times our faith is tested. It is at those times our faith becomes real to us, and grows. We grow more spiritually in the valley than we ever could on the mountaintop. It is in the valley that we recognize God as our only source of hope and learn how to trust Him. It is those times in the valley where it is just us and God that we realize how much He loves us.

I love you and care about you so much. Know today that God is with you, that nothing in your life is an accident, and that God is in control. It is no coincidence that the Lord has brought our lives together at this time in your life. I want you to know that I am here for you in your time of need. I will be praying for you. God is still on His throne, and in 100% control at all times. There are no coincidences with God!!!

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