Now is the Time to Do Great Things for God

Leave a comment

(2 Corinthians 8:3-4)

Now is the time to do great things for God!!! I have always loved to read about the man called Saul, who became Paul. A man who was a leader in persecuting the first church, had that incredible transformation on the Damascus Road, and then proceeded to live one of the greatest lives of service ever recorded.

Hours upon hours I have studied Paul’s life, and in the end I came to the conclusion that his success in serving the Lord was due to the fact he had no fear of what God could do and lived out his belief that all things were possible with God. Listen to me closely. Paul did not just say it . . . HE LIVED IT!!! If you are going to do great things for God, you must have no fear and LIVE each day without doubting that God is able to do all things.

I hear many people condemn the church, condemn ministries for always talking about money. I agree that perhaps too much effort does go into fund-raising, but I want to remind you that one of the most effective fund-raisers in the history of the church was Paul himself. He understood that to spread the Good News in a massive way took the financial support of those who were already in the faith.

I appreciate his approach in that he always made it clear it was not the size of the gift, but the attitude of the heart that gave. It was not the amount, but the sacrifice involved. Paul was realistic because he understood that to take the Gospel to all the world, it required hard work, sacrifice, and finances. Being the intelligent man he was, I have, no doubt, that he sat down, figured out what it would take for each of his missionary journeys and the planting of the new churches, and then asked God for wisdom in how to raise the amount needed following God’s plan.

My heart is so open this very moment as I am typing these words to you. I sense in my Spirit so many wanting to do more for the Lord, so many wanting to make a bigger impact. I want to tell you in love, the only thing stopping you is YOU! God is ready. We have a BIG God. He can do all things. Only YOU can limit what God can do!!!

I want this message to be an encouragement and a challenge for you to get out there and see how big God really is. Don’t be afraid of failure because there is NO failure in the things of God. I am encouraged by the great men of vision alive at this point in time, men who have challenged God and done great things for God, men who were not satisfied sitting back waiting for someone else to do something.

God has given many of you reading this Devotional visions, plans of how to help me reach the lost, abilities to help me touch the hurting. The state of our society and the world we live in tells us that now more than ever, we must move forward with the visions and plans God gives us to reach people with the Gospel. This is a wake-up call to many of you that NOW is the time to move forward. Now is the time to make those dreams into reality.


Liveprayer has been on the front lines for the past 12 years. Our work is not finished just yet. God has called me to use the incredible resources we have developed over these past 12 yrs to help lead this nation back to Him and His Truth. I need your help! NOW IS THE TIME TO DO GREAT THINGS FOR GOD!!!

Three yrs ago, I had 15 people who were either high-end REAL ESTATE agents, home builders, or in the mortgage business. All of these people were making mid- 6 figures up into 7 figures. They loved the Lord and were able to send an average of $100k a year to God’s work here at Liveprayer.

They were also the type of people I had built a relationship with, and in a time of need could call any one of them and they would overnight $5,000-$20,000 without question. That enabled me to never have to ever come to those we minister to in a financial emergency for help like I have been forced to recently

Sadly, the downturn in the economy, especially businesses associated with real estate, have devastated all 15 of these families. I pray for each of them daily as they simply try to salvage their businesses that also employ hundreds of people collectively, and keep their families afloat.

But I know that God always has a ram in the bush and that there are hundreds, even thousands, reading this today who have the ability to help me. The people of the world can come up with unlimited amounts of money to help lead souls to hell. For only $10 million, Liveprayer can not only see millions saved, but change the spiritual course of this nation. $10 million. That is nothing for God. That is nothing for His people who love Him!!!

I love you and care about you so much. We only get one life. This is our one and only opportunity to do great things for God our Creator! I am amazed at how simple people like you, who bought into the false “hope and change” of a politician seeking his own agenda, went out and raised thousands, in some cases millions, for this political cause based on smoke and mirrors that have proved to be fruitless.

I am coming to you today and asking you to help me for Jesus! Many of you have limited resources, but everyone has gifts and talents from God who can use those gifts and talents to help me fulfill God’s work here at Liveprayer. In the process, we can see millions of souls re-routed from the flames of hell to the glory of Heaven while helping to lead our nation back to God and His Truth!

As we live in these critical days, now more than ever the lost masses who will die and end up in hell without faith in Jesus need to hear His Truth! Now more than ever, the lost and hurting masses who have never even been to church, need to hear the Truth of God’s Word. That is what the mission of Liveprayer has been for nearly 11 yrs now. To utilized the Internet, the secular media, to bring the truth of the Bible to the hurting masses and the hope and love of Jesus Christ to the lost.

God is speaking to you today. This is not a coincidence that you are reading these words. Will you help me? Will you allow God to use your life, your gifts and talents to help me fulfill His mission for Liveprayer? WILL YOU DO GREAT THINGS FOR GOD???

If God is speaking to you today, email me and let’s chat about how you can assist me:

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

It is Time to Make Our Mark in the History of this World

Leave a comment

(John 17:21)

“The day of the LORD is near for all nations. As you have done, it will be done to you; your deeds will return upon your own head.” Obadiah 1:15

IT IS TIME TO MAKE OUR MARK IN THE HISTORY OF THIS WORLD! While the end of the world did not occur this past Saturday, since as I have shared with you only God, no man, knows the day or hour, the fact is Jesus is coming at any moment. If that is 1 year from now, 10 years from now, even 1,000 years from now, the history of this world is but a blip in light of eternity. Our purpose in this life is clearly defined as serving and glorifying God with our lives.

I have done my best to faithfully do that these past 20 years. In the 12 years since we started Liveprayer, tens of millions of lives worldwide have been impacted, we have answered over 70 million emails for prayer, and over 500,000 souls we know of have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior. This has only been possible because of the faithful prayers and sacrificial gifts of so many during the years. We have been blessed over these years to develop the tools necessary to be able to go into the marketplace and lead millions, tens of millions of lost souls to faith in Jesus and change the spiritual course of this nation!


Today, I am coming to you and asking you to help me. When this life is over, the only thing that will matter are those things we have done for the Lord. God will judge each of us by what we have done with our lives for the Kingdom. As I have shared with you for many years now, with $10 million dollars, we can change the spiritual course of this nation, and see hundreds of thousands, millions of souls won to Christ. There are many churches and ministries with these types of resources, but they have no vision to go into the marketplace with a bona fide plan to lead our nation back to God and His Truth. LIVEPRAYER DOES!

What I am asking you to do today is pray about this week, making phone calls to at least 10 people you know who have the ability to help our work here with a gift. People all the time ask family and friends to donate to this charity and that charity. If only 5,000 people make this effort, we could easily raise the first $2-$3 million of what we need. Do you love the Lord enough, believe in His work here enough, to make the effort to help me???

Carefully read the rest of today’s Devotional, and read the words at this link:
It will give you tons of information to be able to talk with people you know about supporting God’s work here at Liveprayer. People all the time ask their family members, friends, people they know, to give money to a politician, or worthy charity. What is more important than an effort to lead this nation back to God and His Truth, while bringing hope to the hurting and salvation to the lost?

Every person reading these words today can help me, since everyone can pray for this effort. For those who are able, you can help with a gift towards this effort. Everyone knows someone who has the ability to give even $10 towards this effort. Sadly, local churches aren’t interested in giving to ministries not affiliated with their church or denomination. However, you know Godly people who God has blessed to be able to help in this effort.


The judgment of God is falling, it is time to seize the opportunity! Only the spiritually dead or those who simply deny the existence of God, can’t see that what this nation is facing is the beginning of God’s judgment for our sins and wickedness. I actually laugh each time I hear some “genius” on TV talking about when this current economic crisis will be over and things will be “back to normal.” I have news for the experts, things are NEVER going to be “back to normal,” and the ONLY hope we have to see anything but the total destruction of life as we have known it, is to get on our knees, repent, and turn back to God and His Truth.

Recently, the late Pastor David Wilkerson of the Times Square Church, author of “The Cross and the Switchblade,” and founder of Teen Challenge, warned the readers of his blog about an “imminent catastrophe.” Wilkerson is one of God’s prophetic voices in these last days, and what God has told him is confirmation of what I have been telling the Liveprayer family and the nation for the past 3 years.

There are others who are now starting to speak up on the fact that what this nation is experiencing is much more than simply an economic crisis. Daily now, I am getting emails from people around the world, confirming all that I have been getting ridiculed for stating in the media the past several years. As the days, weeks, and months go by, as things progressively get worse and not better, as it finally becomes obvious that the politicians have NO ANSWERS, I believe in my heart that God’s people will wake up and regular people who have no faith will start to listen. I pray daily that enough of them will open their hearts, that a real move of God’s Spirit will be unleashed upon this land.

Sadly, President Obama is so consumed by the spirit of the anti-Christ ( note I did NOT say, nor do I believe for a second, he is the anti-Christ), leading this nation further from God and His Truth, that he is too blinded by power and spiritually bankrupt to see what is really happening to our nation. While this man who had never even run a lemonade stand in his life bankrupts the treasury with his foolish schemes, more people each day suffer. If he had ANY fear of God, rather than advancing his pro-death policies, supporting the radical homosexual movement, and siding with the enemies of Israel, he would be in sackcloth and ashes calling this nation to prayer and fasting, to repentance, and to turn back to God!!!

My friend, there will never be and spiritual leadership from Washington. No politician is going to lead this nation spiritually, only men and women of God can do that! I refuse to sit back in silence and watch this nation destroyed under the wrath of God while it can still be avoided. This is the time and now is the moment for action. Through the Jonah Project, I have shared with you an aggressive and proactive plan to mobilize God’s people as we take our stand for Christ in these last days. There is no more time to sit back in silence, play games, be distracted by the temporary pleasures of this world while the nation sinks into the spiritual abyss and is destroyed.

Listen to me carefully, the destruction of this land and life as we know it is at hand whether you understand it or not!!!

It is sad to see the so-called Christian leaders of our day still playing their games, still more concerned with the survival of their kingdoms than God’s Kingdom, still worried with how to raise money instead of how to lead the lost to faith in Jesus Christ. Spineless, gutless wonders like Joel Osteen have the audacity to smile and tell people everything is going to be OK and they can prosper even in this down economy. The prosperity pimps on Christian TV are still selling their perverted money appeals harder than ever, while the judgment of God is falling on this land and hurting people need a message of faith, not where to send their love gift.

My friend, the hour is at hand. I believe that like Nineveh, we still have the opportunity to repent, turn back to God and His Truth, and be spared His continued judgment and wrath on our land. I also firmly believe that if we don’t turn back to God, His wrath and judgment will continue to be poured out on this nation for our sins and wickedness and life as we know it will cease to exist. How long did we think we could keep killing 4,000 innocent babies a day? How long did we think we could pervert God’s Holy Institutions of marriage and family? How long did we think we could side with the enemies of Israel? How long did we think we could worship the false God’s and idols of this world? How long did we think we could spit in the face of God before His mercy and patience ran out???

This message today is a simple wake up call to all who have been sleeping. You need to forward it to every person you know. Pastors need to start preaching on the fact that we are living under God’s judgment and now is the time for the church to rise up and be the church. We no longer have the luxury of simply being a form of entertainment. It is time to mobilize the troops and send every man, woman, and child to battle stations. THIS IS NOT A DRILL!!!

Several years ago, right before God began to unleash His judgment on this nation thru the economy, the Lord led me to launch the Jonah Project. Most dismissed it at the time, but in hindsight, it was God trying to prepare His people for what was to come. Take a few minutes and go to the Jonah Project webpage at, . There is a 7-8 min. video that will play when you get there which lays out the vision of the Jonah Project. Again, as you will see, it was God preparing His people for action as He began to unleash His judgment on our nation. Pray, SEE the vision, get signed up, and be part of this last days remnant who is going to call this nation to repentance and to turn back to God and His Truth.

I love you and care about you so much. I know many will be upset by this message today. I have heard from many over the months telling me to stop talking about the economy and God’s judgment and “be positive.” I suggest that you go listen to Osteen or any of the prosperity pimps who only care about your money. I suggest you listen to the so called “Christian leaders” who are out there building their own kingdoms while our nation is experiencing the judgment of God. Stick your head in the sand like an ostrich and believe the lies from Prescient Obama and the politicians that they will fix all of this. God is going to hold me accountable one day, I have NO CHOICE but to sound the trump and warn the people what is happening no matter how unpleasant it may be or how many people it upsets.

Any pastor, priest, or ministry leader that is not preaching about the fact God is judging our nation for its sins and wickedness is committing spiritual malpractice. This is the time the body of Christ must come together as one if we are to save our land from destruction. This is one of the greatest evangelism opportunities in human history to see an incredible harvest of souls as people are hurting, looking for hope and answers, hope and answers that are only found in Jesus Christ. All who know Jesus have been commanded, not asked, to share Christ with the lost and hurting in the world.

The judgment of God is falling on our nation as I type these words. I pray today that the Lord will stir you, wake you up, and that you will take your place on the front lines with me as we take our stand for Christ. Satan has unleashed all of his weapons and will do everything he can to insure God’s judgment continues until this nation is destroyed. We can either sit back in silence and watch it happen, or step up and fight. I will fight with my last breath because I believe the soul of our nation is worth fighting for as are the souls of the lost who are heading to an eternity in hell without Jesus. Will you fight with me for our nation and the lost?

***MAY FINANCIAL UPDATE: THANK YOU for the outpouring of love and the sacrifce many made during April. Through yesterday, we have received $80,000 of the $150,000 in donations and pledges I asked the Lord to deliver by the end of April. I am still walking by faith that by the end of May, the last $70,000 of this amount will come in!

Maybe I should predict the end of the world and take in $80 million in donations as Family Radio’s Harold Camping did. Or promise that if you give Liveprayer money, you can be debt free, even rich as the prosperity pimps on Christian TV like Murdoch, Hinn, Creflo Dollar, and the rest do that enables them to fly around in $50 million private jets, live in multi-million dollar mansions, and live like the rulers of small nations instead of formulating a real plan that can save millions of souls and lead this wicked nation back to God and His Truth before we see the wrath and judgment of the Almighty.


God uses human instruments. Everyone expects someone else to answer the call, and miss His blessings that flow from our obedience. Please take a few minutes today and ask the Lord what HE is calling you to do to insure this need is met. Over the past 12 years, men and women of God have stepped up at the 11th hour to further His work at Liveprayer. Today, I am looking for 2-3 key people to take their stand with me with a special gift of $5,000 or more, and hundreds of others to give as you are led and able to give.

The Bible teaches to give according to our ability to give. For some, it may be just a quarter you find in the couch. For others, it may be $1, or $5. Still others, especially those who are working can give $20, $50, $100. Still others who God has blessed can send a gift of $200, $500, $1,000, even $10,000, $20,000, $100,000, or $1 million. People give $1 million every day to causes they care about. Is the eternal soul of a nation, the souls of millions of people worth $1 million if you have the ability to send such a gift?????

—>To make a special gift to Liveprayer, you can send your gift to Liveprayer on your major credit card at our website under the “Donation” button, or you can give from your PayPal account by using my email address, , or you can mail it to: Liveprayer, 6660 46th Avenue North, St. Petersburg, Florida 33709. All gifts to Liveprayer are 100% tax deductible.

Thank You for praying, and taking your stand for Christ with me. Together we will see this nation turn back to God and HIS Truth, while leading millions of lost souls to faith in Jesus, for the glory of God!!!

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

God is the Giver of All Gifts to Carry Out His Plan and Purpose

Leave a comment

(1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

GOD is the giver of all gifts to carry out His plan and purpose. I pray that this prophetic word God has spoken through me today will open your hearts to the TRUTH of His Word and the imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This is a word the believer and non-believer alike MUST read. Please do your part to get it to everyone that you know, post it on every message board and chat room you can. GOD IS TELLING US THAT JESUS IS COMING BACK-AT ANY MOMENT!

The other day I read the most accurate description of our world today I have EVER SEEN. Let me share it with you, “For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator-who is forever praised. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.”

Actually, this came from GOD Himself in Romans 1:21-32. I, especially, like the line in verse 25, “They exchanged the truth of God for a lie.” If that doesn’t describe our culture today perfectly, I don’t know what does. Satan, the great perverter, has told the lie enough times that people have now accepted the lie as the truth, and rejected the truth as a lie exactly as God said they would.

I know there is much debate and controversy within the Body of Christ as to exactly how the events of the end times will unfold. One of the interesting things about Bible prophecy is that you really can’t tell someone they are wrong since these are events yet to occur. While the study of eschatology or the end times is interesting, my focus is on our real day to day lives and how to live victoriously in the context of the Christian faith. However, there are some end time events nobody will dispute and one of those is the imminent return of Jesus Christ.

The Bible clearly teaches that NO MAN, only God knows the hour of Christ’s return. But make no mistake, this is NOT a Hollywood movie, it is a very real event that will take place. One thing is certain, when Christ returns whatever final events that must take place will quickly unfold and this world as we know it will no longer exist. Even though only God knows the exact moment Christ will return, the Bible clearly tells us what the last days prior to His return will be like. My friend, you do not have to have a Doctorate in Theology to read God’s Word and know that without a doubt, WE ARE IN THE LAST DAYS.

In Paul’s second letter to his young disciple Timothy, in chapter 3 verses 1-5, he describes the last days. “But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God- having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.”

Peter also shared the signs of the last days in 2 Peter 3:3, “First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.” Peter and Paul could have been writers for the USA Today commenting on the state of our world in the year 2004 with their words.

Jesus commented as well on the signs of the last days in Matthew Chapter 24. His disciples asked Him point blank what will be the sign of His return and the end of the age. Jesus answered in verses 4-14, “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”

You see my friend, this is why those who know Christ as their Savior have to be busy about the work of the Kingdom. We are clearly in the last days, the night is coming and we must work while it is still light. The imminent return of Jesus Christ is a message you will not hear in the church very often because too many pastors either don’t believe He is coming back, or they have lost sight of how soon it will happen. God’s people need to not only be ready themselves for Christ’s return, but must be busy sharing this Good News with the lost and dying world that we live in. The Bible tells us it is only God’s patience that is delaying the last chapter from being played out because it is His desire that none perish and ALL come to repentance.

I love you and care about you so much. I will be praying for you to take some time today and PRAY over these words. It is no accident or coincidence that you are reading this today, God is speaking to you. For those who have never made a commitment of your heart and life to Jesus Christ by faith, the Bible says that TODAY is the day of salvation. Take a moment right now, pray and ask God to open your heart and go to the following link and read the words there: .

For those who know Christ as your Savior, this is a wake-up call from God that the time is short and you need to be giving all you have each day in serving Christ. Serving Him is not an option but a requirement of ALL His children. God calls most to serve Him right where they are at, in your neighborhood, at school, on the job, where you recreate, in the various hobbies you have. Every day the Lord brings people into your life who will never go to church, never read a Bible, or never watch Christian media. You are the only connection to God they have. God has put them into your life so that you can share with them the hope and love of Christ. Never forget, when your life is over the ONLY thing that will matter for eternity are those lives you impacted for Christ.

Based on what God’s Word tells us about the last days, you can hear the trumpeter in the back room warming up. Christ came to this earth the first time unannounced to the world, born in a lowly manger in an obscure village. However, He is preparing for a triumphant return at any moment that the entire world will witness as He comes back “with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God.”

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

I Want to Encourage You Today

Leave a comment

(Romans 8:28, Galatians 6:9)

I want to ENCOURAGE YOU today! I don’t know exactly what you are facing in your life this moment, I don’t know what your problems are, what trials and tribulations you are experiencing in your life right now. But I do know this, everyone reading these words today is going though something. No matter what it is, I want to give you a message right from the throne room of God…DON’T GIVE UP!!!

I am not going to tell you that all of your problems will be solved by the time you go to bed tonight, chances are they won’t. I am not going to tell you that everything will work out exactly the way you want it to, chances are they won’t. I am going to tell you, however, that God will provide the answers to whatever your problems may be. I am going to tell you, however, that God will work everything out. God promised us in His Word, “…and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

God told me to tell you today…DON’T GIVE UP!

If you are battling with an illness in your body today…DON’T GIVE UP! If you are battling with your finances today…DON’T GIVE UP! If you are
battling with your marriage today…DON’T GIVE UP! If you are battling with your employment or schooling today…DON’T GIVE UP! If you are battling with your children today…DON’T GIVE UP! If you are battling with an addiction today…DON’T GIVE UP! NO MATTER WHAT YOUR BATTLE IS TODAY…DON’T GIVE UP!

My friend, God loves you. He knows what you are going through in your life today. He has not abandoned you, He has not forsaken you. In your darkest hour you can be assured that God is right there with you. When everyone else has turned their back on you, when everyone else has run away, when nobody is left to stand with you…GOD IS STILL THERE! On the night He was betrayed, Jesus saw His disciples run from Him, deny even knowing Him, yet He was never alone because God was with Him. Even when those you love the most leave you, Jesus is there because He promised to “never leave you nor forsake you.”

God told me to tell you today…DON’T GIVE UP!

I love you and care about you so much. I want you to know that I am standing in the gap for YOU today. I am standing with you and believing God for your needs to be met. You may not see your answer today, or tomorrow, or next week, or next month, or even next year. God’s timing is not our timing, but God’s timing is always perfect. He is never a second too early, or a second too late. DON’T GIVE UP!

The children of Israel would have never seen the Promised Land had Moses given up. He wandered in the desert for forty years…FORTY YEARS! If God leaves us in the desert for forty minutes we are complaining! We can learn from Moses today that no matter what we are going though in our life, if we will continue to trust God, keep our faith in the Lord regardless what the circumstances may be, He will deliver us and meet our every need. The key however, is that you DON’T GIVE UP!

I will be praying for you today. Praying that the Lord will give you His peace no matter what you may be facing in your life at this moment. Praying that God will give you His strength today. Paul wrote to the church at Galatia to “…not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” As you wait on God to answer your prayers, to meet your needs, continue to be faithful. Remember that as we are about our Father’s business, He will be about our business!

God is saying to you that no matter what you are going through today…DON’T GIVE UP!!!

“Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” (1 Corinthians 15:58)

*NOTE: Don’t worry, I’ll be here tomorrow with the Daily Devotional for Sunday May 22nd!

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

Family Radio has been a Great Blessing to Millions of People for Many Years

Leave a comment

(Hebrews 9:27; 2 Peter 2:9; 2 Thessalonians 1:7,8)

“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” Matthew 24:36

*Due to the tens of thousands of emails I have received on whether Jesus is coming back this Saturday, I am re-airing this Devotional that I shared on this very topic several months ago. Please forward this to everyone you know so people understand what GOD, not Bill Keller or any other man says about the date and time Jesus will return.

Family Radio has been a great blessing to millions of people over many years. President of Family Radio is Harold Camping, a man who I believe has been for many years a tremendously gifted Bible teacher. I quit listening to Camping years ago when he first stated many years ago that Jesus was coming back on a certain date. When that did not happen, he modified what he said and started to preach in error that it was the church age which was over.

While I believe Camping is erroneous in this claim based on what the Bible teaches about the church age, I felt he was still a solid Bible teacher. Sadly, Camping has now gone off the deep end where so many before him have gone, claiming that Jesus will return this Saturday.

Jesus said in Matthew 24;36 that NO MAN, not even Himself, knows the day or hour, only God Himself. Over the past 2000 years, there have been a steady stream of people who have claimed to know this information, and each one only discredited themselves when the day came and went. According to the Mayan calendar, the end of the world will come on December 21, 2012. Many others have stated they know this date.

This sad error by Camping can’t erase decades of faithful and fruitful service, and I pray it is simply his advancing age that has clouded his judgment to make such an unBiblical statement, but unfortunately it will be difficult to give him much credibility on May 22nd when the sun rises in the east and life in this world goes on. However, it does give us an opportunity, especially in light of the massive earthquake and tsunami in Japan, since many have been talking about the end of this world as we know it these past several days.

The massive earthquake and tsunami recently in Japan was an act of fallen nature, but also a warning from God! One of the questions I get very often is why God allows tornadoes, hurricanes, lightning, typhoons, floods, earthquakes, and other acts of nature that destroy billions of dollars of resources each year globally, and take thousands of lives. An understanding of this requires an understanding of the consequences of man’s original sin in the Garden of Eden. As I have shared on many occasions, man was created to live and never die. He was placed in a perfect environment, free of germs, disease, and the acts of nature that we have in our world today.

At the time God created this environment we lived in there were NO tornadoes, hurricanes, lightning, typhoons, floods, earthquakes, or other acts of destruction by nature. These acts of nature are often referred to now as acts of God. That is a very misleading statement. God does allow these acts of nature to occur, but these were NOT His intended actions for the environment He created man to live in. They are consequences of the fall of man due to his sin.

The good news, however, is found in Isaiah 35 where it speaks of the restoration of nature to its pristine condition and beauty. Adam and Eve were thrown out of the Garden of Eden and forced to make their way in this now fallen creation. They were created to live in a beautiful and perfect environment. Now they and their descendants would have to get along in an imperfect and hostile one. However, there will come a day very soon when Christ shall return in a twinkling of an eye, and wipe out all sin from this world. Nature will once again be restored to its perfect beauty and free of the destructive acts we face today.

Make no mistake, that this is also a warning from God. As you read the Old Testament, God sent His spokesmen, the prophets, to warn the people from time to time. Sadly, in most cases the people ignored the warning from God and ended up paying a HUGE price. Today, we have God’s Word that clearly warns us what will happen when we choose to live our lives in rebellion to Him.

Unfortunately, most people in this world have chosen to ignore those warnings. Like most of the people in Japan,they simply don’t believe that God will judge each person for their sins, that God will judge nations who rebel against Him, and that ultimately God will judge this entire world and bring it to an end. God has clearly warned us about His judgment in His Word, but most people choose to ignore Him.

I often talk to you specifically about God’s pending judgment on the United Sates because of our rebellion to Him. It was a clear warning supported by God’s Word that if we don’t turn from our wickedness, God will send down His wrath upon our land. I’m afraid that most non-Christians laugh at such a notion, choosing not believe it will ever happen. Worse though, I am afraid most Christians have heard the warnings so many times and haven’t seen anything happen, they choose to ignore the warnings.

That is why our nation is now deep in rebellion to God and there seems to be little desire or motivation to change. Heathen who openly live in rebellion to God and Believers who don’t really believe what God has said. We have embraced the false gods and idols of this world, bowing down to and worshipping them. We are lost in every kind of sexual sin imaginable, no longer having any shame but actually being proud of our perverse choices.

We watched in horror as terrorists were responsible for 3,000 of our citizens being killed on 9/11, deeply moved by those who lose their lives in natural disasters, yet think nothing of practicing infanticide, killing over 4,000 innocent babies every day. Even though we have God’s Word and have seen His judgment on nations for their rebellion throughout 6,000 years of human history, we have chosen to ignore God’s warning about His judgment on our nation.

NOTE: As I shared in yesterday’s Daily Devotional, writing the words I did nearly 24 hours prior to President Obama’s speech on the Middle East yesterday, I was 100% correct that this President has continued to side with the enemies of Israel, putting this nation once again on the wrong side of God. It is actions like this which will ultimately bring down the wrath and punishment of God on this nation that operates daily in complete and utter rebellion to the Almighty and His Truth!

While God has called me in these last days to sound the trumpet of warning to this nation and world of God’s pending judgment, my number one job is to warn you of His pending judgment in YOUR LIFE! God has explicitly warned us in His Word that those who die in their sin will be lost for all eternity. I want you to know today that because of your sins, you are separated from the God who created you and loves you so much. It is out of His infinite love for you that He has made a way for your sins to be forgiven and for you to spend all eternity with Him when this brief life is over.

Let me be blunt with you. One day, YOU will die. That is a fact. At that moment, you will stand before God and there will only be one question, “Do you know Jesus as your Savior by faith?” That is a “yes” or “no” answer. You won’t have the opportunity to stand there and say, “no, but.” God is not going to be interested in your excuses. Each person in their life is responsible for accepting or rejecting Jesus Christ into their heart and life by faith and each person will be held accountable by God for all eternity for that choice.

Let me ask you a simple question. If you died this very moment, do you have the complete assurance without any doubt that when you stand before God He will welcome you into His presence for all eternity because you have place your faith in Jesus Christ?

I love you and care about you so much. Sadly, tens of thousands of people died in Japan and those who died without Christ are lost for all eternity because they ignored the warnings. This nation, this world has been warned by God in His Word and by many of His servants throughout the years of His coming judgment. Just like many of the people in Japan, this nation and this world have chosen to ignore the warnings from God. One day, very soon, God’s judgment will be unleashed on this nation and on this world for its rebellion exactly as God said He would in the Bible.

Today, maybe for the first time, maybe for the 100th time, maybe for the 1,000th time, you are hearing the warning from God that the moment you die you will stand before God and be judged by Him. If you die having rejected Christ, your soul will spend all eternity apart from the God who created you. You will be lost of all eternity. God’s desire is that ALL come to repentance, that none be lost. By putting your faith and trust in Jesus Christ you can have the assurance that at the moment you die you will be forever with the Lord, spending all eternity with Him. That is the choice each person that lives has to make, that is the choice that YOU have to make.

Let me ask you a simple question again. If you died this very moment, do you have the complete assurance without any doubt that when you stand before God He will welcome you into His presence for all eternity because you have placed your faith in Jesus Christ? If you do not have that assurance, please go to: . Pray, ask God to open your heart to the truth of the words there, and make the choice today to ask Jesus Christ into your heart and life by faith. Don’t ignore this warning!!!

President Obama will put Himself and this Nation on the Wrong side of God as He Supports the Enemies of Israel

Leave a comment

(Genesis 12:1-7, 13:14-16, 15:18; Deuteronomy 9:4-6; Joshua 1:1-11, 21:43-45)

Today, President Obama will once again put himself and this nation on the wrong side of God, as he supports the enemies of Israel. What has been happening in the Middles East over these past months, is not only the rise of Islam in the world, but the rise of the enemies of Israel who seek the destruction of that nation and the death of every Jewish person. This is why now is the time this nation must turn back to God and His Truth, since his wrath and judgment is imminent!

Please, do yourself a favor right now and get your Bible and sit down and spend the next 10 minutes reading the anchor verses for today, Genesis 12:1-7, 13:14-16, 15:18, Deuteronomy 9:4-6, Joshua 1:1-11, 21:43-45. You could spend hours reading all the passages in God’s Word that confirm that modern-day Israel is the land God promised to Abraham and gave to His children. You do not have to be a Bible scholar to quickly realize in just the few key passages I have given you today that the land of Israel is indeed the exact land God Himself promised to His children 4,000 years ago, and fulfilled that promise in 1385 B.C. when Joshua took possession of that land.

Having laid the Biblical case to support that the land of Israel belongs to the Jewish people, now you can see why giving away even one inch of that land to anyone else is going against God Himself. No person, no nation, has the right to give away what God promised and gave to the Jewish people. Those who do make themselves an enemy of God! Over and over throughout the Bible and human history, nations have invaded this land, taken it over, only to be defeated in the end. The land of Israel is only 20,330 sq km, slightly smaller than the state of New Jersey. Out of the billions of square miles that exist on this earth, this is the only place on the planet God literally promised and gave to His children. For anyone to go in and try to give a piece of that land away is foolish.

That is why the current “peace plan” the United States has had such a large role in working out for decades, the “two-state solution,” will never work and has actually put our nation on the opposite side of God again! Let me be clear. The Gaza Strip belongs to ISRAEL! The West Bank belongs to ISRAEL! Jerusalem, all of it, belongs to ISRAEL! For this nation to be involved in any deals, even under the guise of “peace,” that involve giving away the land God gave to the children of Israel is taking on God Himself! Not to mention that this land is being given away to the ENEMIES OF ISRAEL!!!

My friend, one of the problems many have with the Bible is that they can’t understand why a God of love would command His children to go to war and “kill every man, woman, child, and living thing” as He did many times in the Old Testament. The reason was this. God in His omniscience knew that the enemies of Israel, those who came to possess their land, had no desire for peace but the complete destruction and annihilation of the Jewish people. The complete obliteration of the Jewish people was their ONLY goal, not peace. Sadly, there are some people who have no desire for peace, only death and destruction and you either destroy them or they destroy you. That is one of the sad realties of living in this fallen and evil world.

For those who oppose the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, they either don’t understand or are completely blind to the fact that there are people on this planet whose only goal is the complete destruction of the United States and every person who lives here. That means you and your family too! The sad reality is that there are very real people alive this very moment whose very real goal is the complete destruction of the United States. We will either kill them or they will kill us. We are blessed that our forefathers understood the evil that exits in this world or we would not be here today, enjoying the wonderful freedoms and life we do.

Israel also clearly understands the reality that there are people who desire their death and destruction. They don’t have the luxury of great oceans on either side as we do and their enemies literally live all around them. That is what makes this current “peace plan” so silly. To actually take some of the small amount of land that belongs to Israel and literally give it to their enemies is absurd and ridiculous. It will only embolden and empower those who seek the destruction of Israel. Again, make no mistake about it. While we and others seek “peace,” it takes TWO to make peace. Despite the claims by the Palestinian leadership, their goal is NOT peace but the destruction of Israel.

I have always been amused at why anyone thinks it is necessary to give the little strip of land God gave to Israel away to her enemies, when Israel is surrounded by Arab nations with VAST AMOUNTS of land who could easily assimilate their Arab brothers into their countries. Why do the Palestinians have to live on the land God gave to Israel when there is plenty of land in neighboring Arab countries they could live on? What is wrong with a “peace plan” that gave some of the land in surrounding Arab countries to the Palestinians?

I love you and care about you so much. I want to close today with a powerful promise God made to Abraham 4,000 years ago in Genesis 12:3, “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” This one verse of Scripture is why what is happening in Israel right now is so critical to THIS NATION! In being part of a plan to give away the land God gave to Israel to anyone, especially her enemies who seek her destruction, puts us on the wrong side of God. We should be seeking the BLESSINGS of God, not His CURSES!

Know that I am praying for you today. Even though most Jewish people have rejected Christ as their Savior, blinded to the reality that He is the Messiah they were promised in the Old Testament, they were, are, and always will be God’s chosen people. The promise God gave Abraham in Genesis 12:3 is still in effect today. Our Christian faith is traced back through the children of Israel. The last events of this world will be played out in Israel. That is why we need to pray for and support the Jewish people and God’s plan for the land of Israel. Our blessings in life come from following God not being in opposition to God!

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

A Third of the Emails We Get at Liveprayer are Concerning Relationships

Leave a comment

(2 Corinthians 6:14; James 2:17; 1 Timothy 6:19)

Probably 1/3 of the emails we get at Liveprayer each day are concerning relationships. Men and women who have gotten into bad relationships that not only affect them short-term, but for many, their entire life. Because it is so important to use not only your common sense, but spiritual sense when getting into a relationship, I thought today I would share with you my BIG THREE for starting any relationship. Please understand, that by meeting these BIG THREE, it does not insure you will have a successful relationship, or that it is God’s plan for your life. However, I can guarantee you that if these BIG THREE don’t exist, there is no chance that this is part of God’s plan for your life.

Please take a moment and pray as you read these over. This is no accident you are reading these words today. If you are already in a relationship, ask yourself these three question about the one you are involved with. Again, God gave you the freewill to make your own decisions, but if the answer to any of the BIG THREE is NO, I would take some time and pray seriously to see if this is really what God wants for your life.

THE BIG THREE. Number one, is the person you want to enter into a relationship with saved? I have done an entire Devotional in the past, that I will re-air very soon, on being “unequally yoked.” The warnings in God’s Word are like stop signs. It is up to you to stop, or you can just ignore it and keep going. We all know that if you run stop signs, you are putting yourself at extreme risk, and the consequences could be deadly. I have to tell you that a large percentage of the emails I get from men and women with relationship problems, are because they have ignored this warning and entered into a relationship with someone who was not also a believer. It simply does not work. God knows that, and that is why He put that warning so clear in His Word.

Number two, if the person is saved, do you see evidence of their relationship with Christ in their day to day life. The Bible clearly tells us in Ephesians chapter two that salvation is by God’s grace and our faith. No amount of good works can save you. However, anyone who is truly saved should have good works flow from their life because of that relationship. One of the best verses in the Bible is that “you will know a tree by the fruit it bears.” What that is basically saying is that if you profess to have a relationship with Christ, it should be evident in your day to day life. Anyone who is truly saved, should have the evidence of their salvation visible in how they live.

Number three, is building a spiritual foundation to your relationship. One of the big catch phrases on our college campuses, and even high schools is “hooking up.” It basically means to have anonymous sex with someone. NO feelings are supposed to be involved. Just have sex and go, kind of like a McDonald’s drive thru. If this isn’t one of the most hideous perversions of God’s plan for a man and woman, I don’t know what is. The sad fact is however, most couples build a foundation together based on their looks, sadly in many cases on sex, based on many things, other than their faith. If you can’t build a real spiritual foundation to your relationship, then that relationship will have little chance of standing the test of time. You build it by praying together, reading the Word together, worshipping together, and finding ways to serve the Lord together. These are ways to build that spiritual foundation to your relationship that can carry you through the most difficult times all relationships experience.

I love you and care about you so much. I will be praying for you. I pray today that if you are looking to start a new relationship, or are even in one now, that you will read and pray over these BIG THREE. Again, they do not insure a wonderful and happy relationship, but they are instead a starting point. They are actually what I would call pre-requisites, since if they don’t exist, you are on very dangerous ground. God loves you very much. He only wants the best for your life. That is why He has given you some guidelines.

While relationships are very emotionally packed, He has given you some clear guidelines so that you don’t allow your emotions to get you into problems, some of which could follow you the rest of your life. Again, it is no accident God has allowed you to read this today, so open your heart and know that He is speaking directly to you today. Make the BIG THREE your starting point and DON’T COMPROMISE!!!

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