Through Your Name We Trample Our Foes

(Psalm 44:4-8)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, I have several Uncles who are in the Masons. I don’t think they are “high up” and they all attend different churches. Will their participation in this cult keep them from Heaven?

ANSWER: The only thing that will keep you from heaven is rejecting faith in Jesus. Most Masons have no clue the satanic roots of the CULT they are part of. Their membership will keep them from many of the blessings and other benefits of their salvation. I also can’t understand how anyone who is part of that cult, once they are aware of the satanic roots, could stay in it since it is without question something a born-again Believer in Jesus Christ should be part of! It makes me wonder if they are even saved, but that is something God will determine. Below is a link to a Devotional I did on the Masonic cult: http://www.liveprayer.com/ddarchive3.cfm?id=4748

“You are my King and my God, who decrees victories for Jacob. Through you we push back our enemies; through your name we trample our foes. I do not trust in my bow, my sword does not bring me victory; but you give us victory over our enemies, you put our adversaries to shame. In God we make our boast all day long, and we will praise your name forever.” – (Psalm 44:4-8 NIV)

“Through your name we trample our foes.” I have a special message for each person reading these words today. It doesn’t matter how old you are, where you live, how much you have or don’t have, or what you may be facing in your life today, JESUS IS GOING TO LEAD YOU TO VICTORY OVER YOUR FOES! If your foe is sickness, Jesus is going to heal you! If your foe is divorce, Jesus is going to restore your marriage! If your foe is a lack of finances, Jesus is going to open the windows of Heaven and pour out an abundance of resources!

If your foe is alcohol, drugs, gambling, food, smoking, sex, shopping, or any other addiction, Jesus is going to set you free! If your foe is not having a job, Jesus is going to get you working. If your foe is your schoolwork, Jesus is going to help you with your studies. If your foe is losing weight, Jesus is going to give you the discipline to lose those extra pounds. If your foe is at your job, Jesus is going to give you favor and bless you in the work you do. If your foe is transportation, Jesus is going to get you new transportation.

If your foe is fear, Jesus is going to give you courage. If your foe is despair, Jesus is going to give you hope. If your foe is anger, Jesus is going to give you peace. If your foe is depression, Jesus is going to give you joy. If your foe is hatred, Jesus is going to give you love. If your foe is unforgiveness, Jesus is going to give you a forgiving heart. If your foe is worry, Jesus is going to give you that calm assurance. If your foe is death, Jesus has come to give you life everlasting. My friend, whatever your foe may be, JESUS IS GOING TO LEAD YOU TO VICTORY OVER YOUR FOES!

I want to give you a word of encouragement today. You can either let the problems of life defeat you, or you can let the giver of life defeat your problems. I know too many of you missed that one so one more time. You can either let the problems of life defeat you, or you can let the giver of life defeat your problems. You see my friend, God’s Word tells us that the “Battle is the Lord’s.” God’s Word promises us that at the name of Jesus our enemies will be defeated. It is time for you to quit going through life like you have are defeated when the Bible proclaims that because of Jesus you are the victor!

The problem for many of you, however, especially those who by the world’s standards are “successful,” is that you put too much trust in yourself and not enough trust in the Lord. I am going to give you a glimpse into my past life for a minute. One of the things that led to my rebellion against God during the ’80s was the fact He blessed me abundantly at a very young age and I used the wonderful gifts and talents God gave me to build my own kingdom instead of building His Kingdom. You see, I became dependent on MY wisdom and abilities to get things done and left God out of the picture. When you are successful in this world, it is easy to get to a place where you think you don’t have to depend on God or anyone else but yourself. It is only a matter of time before your world begins to crumble when you are on the throne.

That is why God’s Word tells us over and over to not trust in our own understanding, to not trust in man, but to trust in the Lord. Joshua was a mighty military man. He understood the art of war. I have no doubt that he had a great plan for taking down the walls of Jericho. But when it came time to take that city, it was NOT the wisdom of Joshua that took down the walls of Jericho, it was the plan of God! It is not your bow or your sword that is going to give you victory over your enemies, it is the name of the LORD!

I love you and care about you so much. I pray today that you will be encouraged by this message and realize that Jesus has already defeated your foes, whoever and whatever they may be. The reality is, today, this very moment, you are in the middle of whatever battles you are fighting in your life. You are probably weary of fighting, wondering where God is, and can’t see how you will ever get victory. THAT IS WHY GOD IS SENDING THIS MESSAGE TO YOU TODAY! It is like the cavalry coming over the hill with their trumpets blasting!

God wants you to know that He has not forsaken you and that if you will simply trust in the name of the Lord, it is the name of JESUS that is going to give you victory over your enemies and put your adversaries to shame!!!

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

The Real Problems of this Nation

Leave a comment

(Isaiah 58:1)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, does God love [everyone], that is, every human being ever born? I don’t believe He does. In a multitude of occasions, God has directed His chosen instrument to destroy (kill) many peoples, including men, women, children, infants, and even their animals. God Himself, by His own Hand has destroyed a multitude of people (i.e. The Flood). So, “if” he does in fact love every human being, that would have to mean He destroyed/killed many of those whom He actually loved. I cannot begin to fathom that He would do that.

ANSWER: YES! We are created in His image and He loves each one of us. Sadly, it was man’s freewill CHOICE to rebel against God, and thus, man who was created to live forever in fellowship with God not only had that bond broken, but would now experience physical death as well. In the cases in the OT where God directed His people to kill all men, women, children, and living things, it was because those were people groups who chose to live in rebellion to God and did not seek peace, only the destruction of God’s people. Same with Noah’s flood, it was to PRESERVE His people. Acts of nature are a byproduct of man’s sin which also destroyed the perfection his environment. God loved each of us SO MUCH, that He actually sent His Son to die for the sins of ALL mankind.

“Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet. Declare to my people their rebellion and to the house of Jacob their sins.” Isaiah 58:1

The REAL problems of this nation. Now that that the noise and distraction of the election is behind us, it is time to focus on the REAL problems in this nation which are spiritual, not political. Elections come and go, politicians come and go, and by the very nature of the corrupt institution of politics, nothing ever really changes. Case in point, $6 BILLION spent, same President, same House, same Senate. It now takes over 1 BILLION DOLLARS just to run for President, and anyone who has the ability to amass that amount of money has already sold their soul many times over.

I was alone since last November telling people that whoever would be elected, it wouldn’t matter since both men were equally evil in their own ways. Both men worship the god of politics in their professional lives, and both men worship a false god in their private lives. In this current system, NEITHER man had the ability to make any real change in this nation, especially since the real changes necessary had nothing to do with politics but had to be spiritual, something neither was qualified or had any motivation to do.

Saddest to me was to see so many supposed “Christian leaders” compromising their faith for temporal politics, and in the end, not only did their efforts fail, but in the process they sold out. They got ZERO for their compromise. At least Judas got 30 pieces of silver. Why anyone would trust them in the future is beyond me, since this is the very same type of compromise the priests in the OT engaged in that ultimately led to God’s judgment on the nation of Israel.

IT WAS THE FAILURE OF GOD’S MEN TO LEAD THE PEOPLE SPIRITUALLY THAT LED TO THE SPRITUAL DOWNFALL OF ISRAEL!!! IT IS THAT SAME DEARTH OF SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP THAT HAS LED THIS NATION INTO THE SPRITUAL ABYSS! MEN OF GOD, LIKE THE OT PRIESTS, MORE WORRIED ABOUT THE TEMPORAL THINGS OF THIS WORLD SUCH AS MONEY AND POWER THAN THE ETERNAL SOULS OF MEN. MEN OF GOD, LIKE THE OT PRIESTS, MORE WORRIED ABOUT BUILDING THEIR KINGDOM THAN THE KINGDOM OF GOD!!!

A perfect example was Purpose Driven marketeer Rick Warren, a man whose gross compromises I have documented over and over during the past 10 yrs, who was on Piers Morgan’s CNN show last night (Selling a book of course!). Whenever you go on any sort of secular program you are almost always asked about homosexuality and abortion. Having been on hundreds of secular TV and radio programs, that is a given. Why can’t a man who claims He believes in the Bible as our guide, simply tell the truth that NOBODY is “born gay,” it is a CHOICE, just like ANY action is a CHOICE?

Instead, Warren hemmed and hawed, wouldn’t answer the questions clearly. Why can the tools of satan who promote the agenda of satan speak so boldly, forcefully, and with such conviction about what they believe, yet men who are supposed to represent God can’t ever give a clear and concise answer??? It is no wonder why most people are “wandering” with no direction, since there are so few men of God who will boldly, without shame, passionately declare the Truth of the Word and inspire people to follow the Lord!

As long as I have breath, I refuse to be silent, I refuse to compromise the Truth, and I will continue to do my best 24/7/365 to LEAD the people in ways of righteousness and God’s Truth. Waffling may help you sell millions of books and enable you to raise MILLIONS annually, but it is also leading tens of millions of souls to hell needlessly because they never hear the Truth about their sin and the One who die for their sins who they can have a personal relationship with!!!

People are looking for a leader. That is why the anti-Christ will amass such power, since one of his attributes is that he will be a true leader. The greatness of a Washington, of a Lincoln, of a Reagan, was first and foremost their LEADERSHIP! They had a vision, they were able to articulate that vision, and the people followed.

>From a purely political standpoint which I rarely express, the reason Romney lost to the absolute worst and most pathetic President in history, not even able to get as many people to vote for him as McCain did in 08, was the fact he couldn’t articulate a vision and couldn’t inspire the people. He can call himself a leader, but calling yourself a giraffe doesn’t make you a giraffe. He had NO real vision and the majority of the people weren’t voting for him, but voting against Obama!

It is the exact same problem we have in the church. Men of God are happy to preach to the choir, stay in the confines of the four walls of their churches and ministries, and stay out of anything controversial since that isn’t good for “business.”

You can quote me on this one. “It takes vision to lead, it takes guts to lead, and it takes men with a higher purpose than themselves to lead!!!” Bill Keller, Founder of Liveprayer

I love and care about you so much. I am SICK each day that I have to waste even a few paragraphs of my time with you in the Devotional, an average of 2 hours a day on the phone and emailing friends, asking for your help. I don’t need your money to pay for buildings, the operations of buildings, to pay for a huge staff of people and all of those associated costs. Nor do I need your money so I can live like the ruler of a small nation, flying around in a private jet.

I can assure you that over 93 cents of every dollar you give to Liveprayer goes directly to getting God’s Truth into the mainstream and save souls! You would be shocked at how much of your donation to most ministries goes to “overhead.” Anyone who understands the budget of your local church clearly sees how much of what is taken in goes to upkeeping buildings and other non-ministry operations. If people are stupid enough to give Glenn Beck money for a jar of fake urine with an Obama figure inside, if people will give money to support groups who try to silence the Gospel, I certainly have no problem asking you to help me impact lives and save souls!!!

I DO need you money to help me LEAD the people in these last days! I DO need your money to help me bring God’s Truth into the marketplace the church has abandoned and left to the wolves of satan. I DO need your money to help me bring hope to the hurting and salvation to the lost.

For 159 months now, Liveprayer HAS LED THE PEOPLE! We HAVE NOT compromised the Truth of God’s Word even when it cost us tens of thousands in donations. We have NOT been afraid to take on the wolves of satan on their own turf to battle for souls. We have been shunned by the Christian “establishment” because we won’t play their political games or be used by them to help them make money, much like the OT prophets were shunned by the religious “establishment” of their day.

I don’t have time for the games they play, since we have precious hours left. God’s wrath is imminent. We have already seen His judgment being in earnest and increase with each month. This is NOT a game. Sadly, most people ignored the warnings of the prophets, choosing instead to listen to the ear-tickling of the priests. The prophets had nothing to gain other than fulfilling their calling to God, while the priests were so lost in the temporal they couldn’t see what was about to happen.

I am simply asking today for your prayers, and that you take your stand with me. Together, we CAN LEAD THE PEOPLE! Together, we can see this nation turn back to God and His Truth! We have no time left, and unless we wake the people up and deal with the REAL PROBLEMS THAT ARE SPIRITUAL, this nation will be lost and gone forever!

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

The Leader of a Nation Who Gets It

Leave a comment

(Jonah Chapter 3)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, are demon possessions still occurring and possibly more prevalent today?

ANSWER: Yes, absolutely. However, never forget that a Believer can NEVER be demon possessed. Demon OPPRESSED, but never demon possessed since their body is indwelled by the Holy Spirit.

The leader of a nation who gets it! For years I have been telling you that unless this nation has a “Nineveh moment,” it would be doomed to experience the full wrath and judgment of God for our sins. We know in the Bible that after the prophet Jonah warned the people of Nineveh to repent of their sins or God would destroy them, the secular king believed the words of the prophet and ordered the people into sackcloth and ashes. The Bible says God spared Nineveh!

If you want to experience that “Nineveh moment” today, you may have to move to Uganda! During Uganda’s 50th anniversary of independence from Britain, President Yoweri Museveni publicly repented of his personal sin and the sins of the nation. “I stand here today to close the evil past, and especially in the last 50 years of our national leadership history and at the threshold of a new dispensation in the life of this nation. I stand here on my own behalf and on behalf of my predecessors to repent. We ask for your forgiveness,” Museveni prayed.

“We confess these sins, which have greatly hampered our national cohesion and delayed our political, social and economic transformation. We confess sins of idolatry and witchcraft which are rampant in our land. We confess sins of shedding innocent blood, sins of political hypocrisy, dishonesty, intrigue and betrayal,” Museveni said.

“Forgive us of sins of pride, tribalism and sectarianism; sins of laziness, indifference and irresponsibility; sins of corruption and bribery that have eroded our national resources; sins of sexual immorality, drunkenness and debauchery; sins of unforgiveness, bitterness, hatred and revenge; sins of injustice, oppression and exploitation; sins of rebellion, insubordination, strife and conflict,” Museveni prayed.

Next, the president dedicated Uganda to God.

“We want to dedicate this nation to you so that you will be our God and guide. We want Uganda to be known as a nation that fears God and as a nation whose foundations are firmly rooted in righteousness and justice to fulfill what the Bible says in Psalm 33:12: Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. A people you have chosen as your own,” Museveni prayed.

This I can assure you, GOD WILL HONOR THIS MAN’S PRAYERS! They key will be how will the people respond. Will they follow this Godly leader or rebel against him? Museveni received lots of criticism for passing laws criminalizing homosexual behavior. A current bill before the Ugandan Parliament increases the jail sentences for homosexual acts and includes criminal penalties for those who encourage or promote homosexuality.

I love you and care about you so much. If the people will follow their leader in repentance, Uganda could become one of the most blessed places on the planet. It could also become a model for other national leaders. God’s promises are not limited to the United States, or one group of people, but they are universal and available to all.

I will be keeping a close watch on Uganda in the coming months. Watching for how the bulk of the citizens their respond. Watching close that if the people follow their leader in this call for personal and national repentance, how God’s blessings will flow across that nation. Praying ever since I heard of this incredible bold stand for the Lord, that it will be a spark to other nations around the world to follow suit, since it is the ONLY hope and answer for the United States, and the ONLY hope and answer for the nations of the world!

Please Help Me

Leave a comment

(John 3:16)

“Bill, I have always thought that the Lord works in unexpected ways, and often times through people and situations we would not typically expect. During your absence and bout with food poisoning, I experienced the reality of what it might be like without Liveprayer, and your spiritual leadership. I would suggest others may have felt this same sense of loss in your absence, and be inspired to give generously to keep Liveprayer thriving afer having had a breif taste of what life might be like without Liveprayer and Pastor Keller.”

“Pastor Bill, I was given an extension on my house. God is wonderful. I will try and make the best of the time that they have given me. Thank you for your prayers and words of encouragement! They have gotten me through this terrible ordeal. God bless you for being their!”

“Mr. Keller, I wanted to let you know that Sharon has passed away and thank you for everything you have sent her over these may years. It was something she looked forward to everyday and gave her such great strenght, especially in her fianl days.”

“Liveprayer, I just wanted to thank you not only from myself, but I’m sure from countless others for all the tireless efforts you put forth in spreading the word of God. I appreciate the fact that nothing will keep you from speaking the truth in every situation regarding the word of God. Keep up the good fight; you’re an example to all Believers!”

“Pastor Bill, I prayed the salvation prayer. Praise Jesus and thank you Lord for your salvation!’

Please help me! We get THOUSANDS of emails like the ones above DAILY because dear friends like you care, and dear friends like you make the sacrifce to help me! After 13+ years of ministering to tens of millions worldwide, seeing close to 700,000 souls come to faith in Jesus, Liveprayer is in a difficult place. In January, we have a deal in place to launch a national secular TV program that will impact millions of lives, and be the centerpiece to lead this nation back to God and HIS Truth. It will also enable us to cover our normal monthly operating expenses without having to depend on donations.!

Today, I desperately need your help. Liveprayer is so close to being in a position to be the catalyst leading this nation back to God and His Truth. Satan tried to take me out last week with a bout of food poisoning, but God said NO! Satan has known since day one if he can keep us from getting the finances we need we will cease to exist.

People spent over 2 BILLION on Christmas presents yesterday. I know that if only a handful of God’s people will give a fraction of that amount, we can turn this nation, the nations of the world back to God and His Truth, and see a mighty harvest of souls in the process! After 13 yrs, especially after so many compromised their faith during the recent election and got NOTHING, I have a long track record of never bowing my knee to Baal, never compromising just for money, and am one of the few voices people can trust.

My concern today is to get through these last 5 days with all of our basic operational costs taken care of. THANK YOU to those who were led and able to help me with a gift in the past few days. As we head into the final 4 days of November, we are still $6,000 from covering our October shortfall, plus the $40,000 we need for our basic November operations, $20,000 of that is now weeks past due.

If you can wire it or direct deposit the funds in our Wells Fargo account, or FedEx the funds, email me at: bkeller@liveprayer.com and I will get you the necessary information.

I am praying that God will speak to 1 of our friends who can help me with a special gift to take care of the final $6,000 from October, and 3-4 friends who can help with a year-end gift immediately to take care of the $20,000 we are behind from November.

If everyone else will give as God leads you, $10, $20, $50, $100, or more, by Friday we can have the entire $46,000 we need to get current taken care of. Please take a moment today and pray about what God is asking you to do to help me today, and give the most generous gift you can!

Don’t expect someone else to do what God is calling you to do. Help me today…please!

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

The Lesson of Faith from the Widow at Zarephath

Leave a comment

(1 Kings 17:7-16)

Ask Bill: Pastor Bill, what would be a good illustration of true Biblical faith?

Answer: SEE TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL BELOW

Some time later the brook dried up because there had been no rain in the land. Then the word of the Lord came to him: “Go at once to Zarephath in the region of Sidon and stay there. I have directed a widow there to supply you with food.” So he went to Zarephath. When he came to the town gate, a widow was there gathering sticks. He called to her and asked, “Would you bring me a little water in a jar so I may have a drink?” As she was going to get it, he called, “And bring me, please, a piece of bread.” “As surely as the Lord your God lives,” she replied, “I don’t have any bread-only a handful of flour in a jar and a little olive oil in a jug. I am gathering a few sticks to take home and make a meal for myself and my son, that we may eat it-and die.” Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid. Go home and do as you have said. But first make a small loaf of bread for me from what you have and bring it to me, and then make something for yourself and your son. For this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘The jar of flour will not be used up and the jug of oil will not run dry until the day the Lord sends rain on the land.'” She went away and did as Elijah had told her. So there was food every day for Elijah and for the woman and her family. For the jar of flour was not used up and the jug of oil did not run dry, in keeping with the word of the Lord spoken by Elijah. (1 Kings 17:7-16)

It is amazing how when we obey God, His blessings flow. Later in this wonderful story of faith, we see an additional blessing when the son of this widow dies, and the prophet, by the power of God, brought him back to life.

Things have not changed. Over these past 13 yrs we have tens of thousands of testimonies like this, where people obeyed God’s voice and made great sacrifices to give to His work here at Liveprayer, and were blessed above and beyond all they could have imagined.

God’s Word is true and God is faithful!!!

Let me be clear, many of those blessings are NOT financial. Obeying God doesn’t mean you will get a knock at your door and find a Brinks truck. It DOES mean, that God will meet your needs, open doors that only He can open, and bless you in so many ways you probably don’t even recognize. Good health, an old car that keep running, children who love the Lord, a wonderful marriage, a job, your home not in foreclosure, the list is endless in ways God blesses us that we don’t even think of most days.

Why did God send the prophet to this particular woman? The prophet had to eat to sustain his life to deliver the message God called him to deliver to the people of his day. He too, had to have faith that God would provide for his needs. He too, had to have faith that this woman would respond to his plea at that critical time.

The lesson here is simple. For the man of God, doing God’s work, faithfully serving God, he has to trust God daily for the needs to do that work. I know what that is like since this is how I have lived my life every day over the past 20 yrs.

Like the OT prophets, I own no buildings that need to be kept up, I have no investment portfolios for a rainy day, I have no huge staffs of people that need to be supported, since unlike so many I am not trying to build my own kingdom but God’s! I just have the daily needs necessary to sustain life and this ministry so I can share the Truth of God’s Word and the hope of Christ with the lost and hurting!

For those who love the Lord, God will call you often to do something that you may not understand, but as you exercise your faith and obey, you see God’s blessings in your life and soon realize that it is in your faithfulness and obedience the Lord blesses. Despite the challenges we all face, God gives you His peace and joy as you honor and serve Him!

I love you and care about you so much! The fruit of my faith and obedience along with the faith and obedience of so many friends during these past 13+ yrs of Liveprayer has been tens of millions of lives impacted for Christ and just under 700,000 souls we know of who will be in Heaven for all eternity!!!

THANK YOU to those who were led and able to help me with a gift during the past week as we are desperately trying to cover the final $8,000 we are still behind from October operations. I am praying that God will speak to 1 or 2 others who can help me make up the final $8,000 today since it is seriously past due and our basic operational costs needed just to exist. Please pray about a special year-end gift to help me cover this past due amount today. If you can wire it or direct deposit the funds in our Wells Fargo account, or FedEx the funds, email me at: bkeller@liveprayer.com and I will get you the necessary information.

Of course if everyone will pray, and everyone who is able will send what you can, I am standing in faith that by Friday, the $40,000 we need for our November operations, $20,000 of that past-due, will be taken care of and we can end the month with NO SHORTFALL! That is $48,000 we need to bring in over the next 5 days, or just 48 of our friends making a special year-end sacrifice to God’s work here of $1,000. Will you pray today about helping me with $10, $20, $100, or whatever God lays on your hear and you are able to give today? Our God is able!!!

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

Thank you for your love, prayers, and sacrifice. Know that you and your family are in my prayers each day as we take our stand for the Lord in these last days!!!

Driving Out The Demons – Part 2 of 2

Leave a comment

(Matthew 17:14-21)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, I believe that there is a devil and demons. I know Jesus cast out demons. People tell me ‘there are no demons’, ‘they are just dead souls who haven’t gone to the light yet’ and so on. My reply is Jesus cast out demons, Paul did the same, so when did demons stop their dirty work on earth?

ANSWER: One of satan’s greatest scams is to get people to believe he is just a mythical figure, that he doesn’t exist. Satan is VERY REAL, and so are demons, the third of the angels who got booted out of Heaven with him for their rebellion! Until God ends this world as we know it, satan and his demons will continue, but we already know their fate, the Lake of Fire for all eternity. That is why it is so sad when a person dies rejecting Christ. They end up in the same place, a place that wasn’t created for man, but satan and his demons.

DRIVING OUT THE DEMONS PART 2 OF 2

Yesterday in the Devotional I talked about “wanting to,” and “being serious” about driving out the demons in your life, whatever they may be. Once you get to that point, then it becomes an issue of how to do it. Don’t ever forget, this is a war. A war for your soul. Once you accept Christ, it then becomes a war for your life.

Never lose sight of the fact that Satan’s goal is to “kill, steal, and destroy.” Once he loses your soul to the Lord, his next objective is to destroy your life so that you are ineffective as a worker for God. Most people allow those demons in their life to totally incapacitate them from serving God in any way, thus helping Satan accomplish his goal.

To be totally effective, you have got to drive out those demons in your life once and for all!!!

When you go into any war, you must have a battle plan. You just can’t go in without any kind of plan of attack. The same is true when your goal is to drive out those demons in your life.

YOU MUST HAVE A PLAN!!!

Let me give you a perfect example. Many men I counsel dealing with a demon of pornography, especially on the Internet, have been given this battle plan: Pray to God for strength. Then, get a small New Testament Bible and put it in your pocket. Have that Bible with you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When the pangs of lust come upon you, pull out that small Bible, open it to any page, and just read for 2-3 minutes.

The Word of God is powerful and will quench those lustful thoughts immediately. Does this mean you’ve driven out that demon? NO!!! You must keep fighting. Daily. Eventually the lust attacks will slow down and you will get back in control of that area of your life. Not a complicated plan but effective. The point is, no matter what demon you are fighting, you must put together a plan to gain victory!!!

I love you and care about you so much. The Bible tells us that the Lord will never tempt us beyond that which we are able to bear. that He will always prepare a way of escape. Our problem is that we often refuse to take the avenue of escape provided.

God will help you and show you a battle plan to conquer your demons. You have to be ready to implement the plan and see it through. You cannot take this lightly. This is literally a life or death struggle you are in. Be confident. Be bold. God is on your side and if God is for you, who can be against you? He already has won the victory. Now we must walk in that victory He was already won for us.

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

Bill Keller
