God vs Satan

Leave a comment

(1 Kings 18:21-40)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, this is troubling to me. Please explain what is meant by, “the road to
heaven is narrow and few will find the way.”

ANSWER: Sadly, despite the Gospel being available to all, most will choose to reject it. The biggest reason I see daily is because people don’t want to be held accountable. The “narrow road” doesn’t only pertain to Jesus being the ONLY way to be saved, but the Bible being the ONLY truth. Sadly, most choose to reject that Truth.

God versus satan is like and NFL team playing against the best college football team in the nation. As good as that high school team may be, they are over-matched in every area and have NO CHANCE to win. There is one scenario however, in which the college team is able to win. That is if the NFL team doesn’t show up for the game and lose by a forfeit. If you read the last chapters of the Bible, you know that in the end God will defeat satan and send him into the Lake of Fire for eternity (Rev. 20:10). Until that time, satan is a very real enemy that can only win when God is not present.

Sadly, this world that we live in, our culture, is NOT going to ever get better. The social issues that we fight like divorce, abortion, homosexuality, adultery, fornication, declining morals and ethics, drugs and alcohol, are never going to get better…only worse as time goes on. What has helped to feed this steady decline in our culture is the media. Radio, television, the Internet, movies, music, and publications. What fuels the media is advertising.

Satan is the “prince of the power of the air,” and has slowly but surely WON the battle for the media which he uses to feed his lies to the masses worldwide 24/7. Satan has WON the battle in the advertising world which is the fuel the media machine runs on. As each day, each week, each month, each year passes, satan becomes more bold in using the media to fulfill his mission which is to kill, steal, and destroy the lives of people!

The reason satan has won this battle is simple, THERE NEVER WAS A BATTLE! Instead of going head to head with satan, Christians decided to not fight. What Christians have done in the last 40 years is like Moses not trying to cross the Read Sea. What Christians have done in the last 40 years is like David running from Goliath. What Christians have done in the last 40 years is like Stephen keeping his mouth shut. What Christians have done in the last 40 years is RUN FROM satan. We set up our own TV stations and networks, set up our own radio stations and networks, wrote our own books and magazines, made movies and music for ourselves.

We decided to NOT FIGHT for the mainstream vehicles that the people of the world are plugged into every day. Instead, we set up our own vehicles that are geared to only reach those who are already in the church. If people outside the church were “accidentally” reached that was fine, but these are vehicles clearly designed to take the message of Christ to the people of Christ and NOT to the world at large in which we live.

Being a huge sports fan, I have always loved I Kings chapter 18. There are lots of rich battles in the OT, like David and Goliath, the children of Israel against those people who denied the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. But the account in 1 Kings chapter 18 of God versus the prophets of Baal is THE BEST! This was bigger than the Super Bowl. It was literally God -vs- satan. If it was a football game, it would have been 77-0! God wiped satan out!

The great lesson here is two-fold. First, the people of God must be bold enough to pit God against satan like Elijah was, and second, God will NEVER lose!!!

I love you and care about you so much. As you can tell even from these written words, this is something that I have great passion about. We as the people of God have got to become more bold and not be afraid to take God outside the four walls of the church and into this lost and sinful world. Head to head with satan, God will win EVERY TIME!

My friend, time is short, the trumpet will blow at any moment, what are we waiting for? Yes, we are saved and we know where our eternal home is, BUT WHAT ABOUT THOSE IN THIS WORLD THAT ARE LOST? I will pray for you today to open your hearts to these words today. God is calling YOU to be like Elijah on your job, at school, where you recreate, whatever you do in the normal course of your day. HAVE NO FEAR since we serve a God that will answer by FIRE!!!

When we put God against satan, God will win every time. THE ONLY WAY GOD CANNOT WIN IS IF WE ARE AFRAID TO LET HIM! Throughout our daily lives, there will always be opportunities to pit God versus satan. My challenge to you today is this. DON’T run from these opportunities. Be like Elijah and have the courage to stand up and CHALLENGE satan.

OUR GOD WILL WIN EVERY TIME!!!

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

Bill Keller

Faithfully and Without Compromise Preaching the Truth in the Marketplace

Leave a comment

(Luke 10:2,3)

“He told them, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.’ Luke 10:2,3

I pray you and your family are well, and the new year off to a good start. The spiritual issues that are destroying this nation are becoming worse each day since they are being pushed on our culture with virtually zero opposition.

In the year 2013, over 80% of our churches are part of mainline denominations that have virtually forsaken Biblical Truth and souls for political correctness and entertainment, even to the point they support or simply refuse to speak out against gross sins like homosexuality, abortion, fornication, adultery and other sins. The vast percentage of the other 20% are the new man-made seeker/purpose driven marketing strategies that neuter God’s Word in order to put warm bodies into the seats each Sunday.

While so many major ministries are building buildings, buying private jets, building their own kingdom., they are ignoring the culture that is rotting around them. Instead they choose to stay in the safety of the four walls of the church.

When have you ever seen ANY major pastor or Christian leader in the SECULAR media with a plan to lead this nation back to God and His Truth??? Sadly, the only time you see them in a secular environment is when they are selling books or promoting their own works. On the other hand, Liveprayer is only concerned about saving souls and leading this nation back to God and His Truth which is our ONLY HOPE!!!

Because Christians have left the culture for the safety of the “Christian trough” we have created for ourselves, we now have NO VOICE in the marketplace. The media has insured a Biblical worldview is never heard while they mock, demean, and demonize those who have put their faith in Jesus and Biblical Truth.

For nearly 14 yrs, Liveprayer has FAITHFULLY and WITHOUT COMPROMISE preached the Truth of God’s Word IN THE MARKETPLACE!!!

Liveprayer.com reaches hundreds of thousand non-Christians DAILY in the marketplace with the Daily Devotionals. For 6 yrs, the Liveprayer TV program aired ONLY on secular stations and networks. I have been in the media constantly over the past decade, appearing FOX News, MSNBC, CNN, Howard Stern’s program, and hundreds of radio and TV programs.

I have taken the heat that comes with going into such an environment to share what God’s Word says about the issues of the day, while encouraging people Jesus is their only hope and that if they are hurting there is hope!!!

In over 20 yrs of ministry, I have totally given myself 100% literally 24/7 to serve the Lord. Every month I recieve 8-10 threats on my life that come in through the mail and by email. I have sacrificed and forsaken my own life for His these last 2 decades, and have proven I cannot be bought, won’t compromise God’s Truth, or ever back down from telling what God says until the Lord calls me Home!!!

Those who have followed Liveprayer for any length of time have seen me daily take my stand for the Lord without wavering no matter what satan bombards us with!!!

Our faithfulness and the prayers and sacrifces of those in the Liveprayer family has led to tens of millions of lives being impacted. Over 70 million emails for prayers have been answered. Nearly 7 million praise reports have been archived as a testimony to God’s faithfulness. Most important, apx. 700,000 souls we know of have come to faith in Jesus!

ALL HAS BEEN POSSIBLE BECAUSE WE HAVE GONE TO THE MASSES OUTSIDE THE 4 WALLS OF THE CHURCH AND DECLARED HIS TRUTH AND HOPE, AND BECAUSE DEAR FRIENDS LIKE YOU HAVE PRAYED AND MADE THE SACRIFCE TO HELP SUPPORT GOD’S WORK HERE AT LIVEPRAYER!!!

As I come to you today, we are on the verge of finalizing all of the details for the Liveprayer TV program to be back on the air. It will be available nationwide and throughout the world on every type of device that exists today. This is the final piece I have been praying over and working towards the past 4 yrs that is critical to our work in leading this nation back to God and His Truth..THE ONLY HOPE THERE IS FOR OUR NATION!!!

Praise God, this past weekend we covered the balance of our December operations shortfall. As we head into the last 8 days of the month, we need to work on the $40,000 needed for our January operations. I am asking EVERYONE of my friends to take a few moments today and pray about what you can do in the next few days so all of our basic operations are covered by the end of the month. Please give the most generous gift you can so that by January 31st we will have the $40,000 we need to end the month with all of our basic operations current.

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

Thank You my friend! Together we have accomplished much for the Lord, but we still have our final works before us. The souls of tens of millions of people are at stake. The soul of this nation is at stake!!! Please pray today. Your faithfulness and sacrifce in the past has helped us do all that we have in so many tens of millions of lives worldwide, and your sacrifce today will help us finish the job God has called us to!!!

In His love and service,
Your friend and co-laborer in Christ,

Liveprayer’s Bill Keller Calls Pres. Obama Baby Killer in Chief

Leave a comment

(Psalm 139:13-15, Jeremiah 1:4-5)

***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.

***TODAY IS THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF ROE VS. WADE. OVER 50 MILLION BABIES HAVE BEEN SLAUGHTERED SINCE IT WAS ENACTED. BELOW IS A SPECIAL DEVOTIONAL FROM A PRESS RELEASE LIVEPRAYER ISSUED TODAY. PLEASE READ IT PRAYERFULLY AND SHARE IT ON ALL OF YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA SITES AND WITH EVERYONE IN YOUR EMAIL LIST. PLEASE ASK THEM TO DO LIKEWISE. THIS IS A MESSAGE THAT MUST BE HEARD BY ALL, AND THE VIDEO IS SOMETHING EVERYONE NEEDS TO WATCH.

LIVEPRAYER’S KELLER CALLS PR. OBAMA “BABY-KILLER-IN-CHIEF,” AND DEMANDS COMCAST/NBC FIRE RACHEL MADDOW

ST PETERSBURG, Fla., Jan. 22, 2013 Bill Keller, the world’s leading Internet Evangelist and the founder of Liveprayer.com, with over 2.4 million subscribers worldwide reading the Daily Devotional he has written every morning for nearly 14 years on the issues of the day from a Biblical worldview, says President Obama has proved to be the “baby-killer-in-chief,” while demanding Comcast/NBC fire MSNBC host Rachel Maddow for her on-air glorification of the killing of innocent babies.

Keller contends that President Obama is hypocritical when he uses children as his reason to try and enact stricter gun laws, while at the same time being a staunch advocate for the killing of innocent babies, even those babies in the womb during the last trimester. President Obama has aggressively promoted the killing of babies ever since being in public office. His very first order as President four years ago was to allow US taxpayer funds to be used to kill babies in foreign countries.

Special message to President Obama from a baby in the womb:

In the current national debates on guns, the President, those in the anti-gun lobby, and on the left politically want a universal background check on everyone who buys a gun. Keller contends, “The President wants a universal background check on everyone seeking to buy a gun. Well, I want a universal background check on every woman seeking to have an abortion! Is knowing who wants to take the life of an innocent baby not more critical than someone who wants to exercise their 2nd Amendment right to own a firearm?”

Keller lamented that in the meantime, the world’s largest provider of abortion services, Planned Parenthood, receives apx. half a billion dollars annually from US taxpayers, half of its’ income, under the guise of providing health services for women. The fact is, the bulk of the profits reaped by Planned Parenthood are from killing innocent babies.

Keller is equally as harsh when it comes to MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. He stated, “Maddow uses her prime time program to advocate for, glorify, and cheerlead for the killing of innocent babies. It is reprehensible that major national broadcast corporations like Comcast and NBC would allow its airwaves to be used at any time to promote the slaughter of innocent babies. They need to do the responsible thing and fire Maddow immediately and make a statement that they will not be used to promote infanticide!”

Keller went on, “Even more disgusting is how these mainstream media companies like Comcast/NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, are little more than propaganda arms of those on the political left by allowing their on-air hosts to advocate for and promote the destruction of traditional marriage and families which is the foundation of our civilization, as well as the killing of innocent babies. They brainwash and lie to their viewers that that these are majority views by demonizing, mocking, and demeaning the real majority in the nation who hold to a Biblical view on life, marriage, and the family, and rarely allowing that view to be expressed on the air. These media companies provide a forum for numerous on-air hosts who have a clear agenda to destroy the fabric of our culture.”

Keller added, “CNN’s Piers Morgan is trying to boost his horrific ratings by taking on the NRA and playing into this hot issue. He recently talked about the movie ‘Lincoln,’ and how our President needed to have the moral courage of President Lincoln on the gun issue. I agree with Mr. Morgan. President Obama needs to have the moral courage of President Lincoln, but to work on overturning Roe vs. Wade and take the Federal Government out of the business of slaughtering innocent babies. More babies are slaughtered in a week than all of the people killed by guns in a year!”

Keller has warned for years that if this nation does not turn back to God and Biblical values, the judgment of God that has already begun in earnest through the economy, will hasten and this nation will be lost forever. Keller concluded, “God judged the children of Israel many times for their sins, wickedness, and for turning their back on Him. If anyone is so arrogant to think that the same God who judged and punished His own children, won’t judge and punish this nation as He has many nations before us, they will sadly learn how wrong they were…when it is too late!”

I love and care about you so much. The soul of our nation is at stake. Please help me share this with everyone you know as we take our stand to lead this nation back to God and His Truth!!!

The Inauguration and Race

Leave a comment

(Genesis 1:27)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, I have recently read a daily devotional that really has disturbed me as it said it is an insult to God for Christians to ask for forgiveness. Because He died for all our sins (previous and future). So if this is true, how can Christians truly repent?

ANSWER: First, you NEVER read that here. Sadly, in the internet age, there is a plethora of people writing online with ZERO theological training. That is why it is critical to know WHO you are reading. What you read is 100% INCORRECT. In 1 John 1,written to Believers, that we ALL sin. Just because we have confessed our sins, asked forgiveness, repented (turned from our sin), we still need to confess our sins and ask for forgiveness daily…since we ALL sin and fall short of the glory of God. The wonderful thing is we have the assurance from God’s Word we will be forgiven.

***THE INAUGURATION OF PRESIDENT OBAMA:

“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone- for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” 1 Timothy 2:1-5

In accordance with Scripture, I will be praying each morning for our new President. I will pray that he will turn his heart to God and surrender his life to Jesus Christ and become born-again. I will pray for him and his family’s safety and that God will watch over them. I will pray that the Lord will move on his heart and that he will live his life to honor Christ and the Word of God which represents the only Truth there is. I encourage and ask everyone in the Liveprayer family to join me each morning in lifting up President Barack Hussein Obama in prayer AND FOR HIS SALVATION!

As the nation observes Martin Luther King Day, please understand that racism is not something unique to the black/white issues we have here in the United States. Those who live in other countries or who have spent time in other nations around the world, know all too well that racism is not exclusive to the United States and is sadly alive and well in most places today. Dividing people, due to whatever differences there may be, has been around from the very beginning of time and is one of satan’s most powerful weapons.

Now, more than ever the Church must rise above these divisive tactics. Unfortunately one of the most glaring examples of racism occurs each Sunday morning at 11 a.m. in churches all across our nation. I applaud the many fine churches that have worked hard to tear down these barriers and are a snapshot of Heaven with people who are black, white, brown, red, and yellow all coming together to praise, worship, and glorify their God and His Son Jesus Christ.

I pray that as you read these words, you will ask God what role you can play in helping to tear down the walls of division. I am so thankful that Liveprayer brings together over 2.4 million people worldwide every day, bound only by the love of Jesus Christ. People of every color, from most every nation, from ages 12 to 96, from every walk of life, rich and poor, and FROM EVERY CHRISTIAN DENOMINATION AND CHURCH GROUP. They are all simply looking for the hope we all need in this life, the hope that can only come from knowing Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.

I guess I was very blessed growing up. My parents and church taught me at a young age that all men, that is ALL men, are created equal and in the image of God. Going to high school in the early ’70s, I was part of the new forced busing initiatives at that time in our country and ended up attending a school that was 90% African-American. I played sports, had a great time in high school and never even thought much about the skin color of the people who were part of my daily life.

After graduation, I went to college at Ohio State University which has a tremendous population of foreign students which made it possible to interact with people from many different cultures and backgrounds. I worked in high school and college in a Chinese restaurant and my best friend was Chinese.

Currently 40% of the Board of Directors of my ministry are African-American. During the first years of my ministry when I was on the road holding evangelistic services all over the country, I preached in many Korean, Spanish, Romanian, African-American churches, as well as those of other ethnic backgrounds.

I have been blessed to have been exposed to many people of different races and cultural backgrounds in my life. That is why I have always been so disgusted when I see the racial divides in this country. You don’t have to be much of an historian to realize that the racial tensions in this country are no different, actually pretty tame, compared to the racial tensions in other countries in the world today and throughout time.

The Bible is full of stories of racial tensions. Unfortunately, one of the enemy’s strongest weapons is that of division. The ability to divide people by race, speech, skin color, finances, location, or anything else we can think of has been one of Satan’s most effective tools of destruction. In our weakness, we fall into this trap so often.

Let me tell you right now, there is only one distinction that is going to matter for eternity. That is whether or not you know Jesus Christ as your personal savior. There are not going to be lines for Japanese, whites, wealthy, those with blue eyes, or for Baptists, Pentecostals, or Catholics. My friend, there are only going to be two lines when this life is over. The line for those who know Jesus Christ and the line for those who have rejected Jesus Christ!!!

My Bible says that God made man in His own image. Not white men in His own image, or black men in His own image, or Asian men in His own image….MAN. We are ALL created equal. GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSON! I want to challenge you today to quit looking at why the person next to you may be different, and start looking at the person next to you as to whether or not they have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Their skin color is not important, but the condition of their heart is!!!

I love you and care about you so much. God sent His Son to die for the sins of this world, so that WHOEVER believes in Him may not perish but have everlasting life. Quit worrying about the nationality of your neighbor and worry about his eternal destination. Let me encourage you today to start looking at the people God places in your life in a different way. Don’t dwell on how they may be different, but see how God may use you to open their heart to knowing Christ as their Savior.

Racism is a tool that satan used to divide people. My prayer today is that you will open your heart and look at your fellow man as God does….as a human soul made in God’s image that has the same problem we all are born with, sin. Let God use you to reach people regardless of the differences there may be, because in the end all men will live for eternity. How they respond to this man called Jesus will determine where that eternity is spent.

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

Bill Keller

People Struggling with Doubt

Leave a comment

(Mark 9:24)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, I am confused, please help me. The Bible says if you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth ‘Jesus is your Lord and Savior’ you will be saved. Then is there a second condition, that you must also surrender your life 100% in addition to believing to be saved?

ANSWER: NO! Salvation is by faith and God’s grace..plus NOTHING! Ephesians 2:8,9. The fact is you surrender your life to Christ when you make that decision by faith. That is what you are doing, giving your heart and life to Jesus. The Bible says we have been bought with a price. Surrendering to Christ is what happens when a person makes the choice to accept Jesus.

One of the consistent prayer requests I get daily here at Liveprayer, is for people struggling with doubt. Doubt that God exists. Doubt that the Bible is really the truth. Doubt that there is an everlasting life with Jesus. These are very common and normal thoughts that ALL Christians deal with from time to time, since doubt has always been one of satan’s most effective weapons.

Since there is the element of faith involved, doubt becomes a natural instrument the enemy uses to try and paralyze believers from effectively serving the Lord. The most common time doubt creeps in is when we don’t see our prayers being answered, or when something happens that we just can’t believe God would allow to occur.

I have done many Devotionals in the past on prayer. Many focusing on the fact that God answers some prayers yes, some prayers no, and some prayers on are hold for a while. It is those no answers, those prayers on hold that than allow doubt to creep into our thoughts. The fact is, God is not our personal servant, we are His. He is not there for our pleasure, we are here for His.

We must always remember that when we pray, like Jesus, our prayers should ultimately be “not my will, but thy will be done”. We pray because God instructs us to pray. While He may already know the eventual outcome and answer, we don’t. Subsequently, we must exercise our faith, exercise our dependence upon God, and pray.

Recently I did a Devotional on why bad things happen to good people. This has long been a stumbling block for many and has allowed doubt to overtake them. We often can’t understand why tragedies befall good people, often totally innocent people. Again, it is times like these that our faith must become real, we must trust that God is on the throne. And while we don’t always understand why, we know ultimately His will, His plan and purpose will play out.

The fact is, no matter what happens in this life, it is a very brief journey. It is a blip on the radar screen of time. In comparison to the eternity we all face, it is literally as quick as the blink of an eye. Subsequently, however long we are part of this world is not the real issue. What we do in this brief time is, since it will determine our eternal destination.

The answer to doubt of course is faith. Faith in a God that created the heavens and earth. Faith in a God that created each one of us in His own image. Faith in a God that loved us so much that He sent His only Son to die for our sins, so that we could be reconciled back into fellowship with Him. Faith in a God that has given us His Word to guide and direct our journey here on earth. While we all have doubts at different times in our life, the answer to those doubts is our faith in God.

I love you and care about you so much. I will pray for you today as you deal with the doubts that creep into your life from time to time. Never forget these words today, that doubt is simply a trick of the enemy to keep you from the things of God. For the unsaved, doubt can cause them to spend eternity separated from the God that created them. For the believer, doubt can cause you to miss out on much of the joy, peace, and abundance of this life.

I am praying today that the next time doubt creeps into your heart, you recognize it for what it is. It is an attempt by the enemy to neutralize your effectiveness for the Kingdom of God, an attempt to rob you of your hope and joy.

Doubt is from the pits of hell itself. Realize that, and allow your faith to overcome any doubts as you put your trust in the Lord. We stand firm in our faith because of all God has done for our life. The same God who has saved you, the same God who has helped you overcome so much in the past, is the same God, the very REAL God who will help you overcome any doubts you might have today.

It is our faith that conquers our doubts, a faith in the God who when Thomas doubted that Christ had indeed risen from the dead said, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”!!!

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

Why is Satan so Bold with a Lie and Christians so Timid with the Truth

Leave a comment

(Acts 19:8)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, the Bible says to assemble with other Christians which would be going to church for one, but that is a work. No good work will get you to heaven. So if you don’t go to church every Sunday is that a sin?

ANSWER: NO! Going to church, not forsaking the assembling together as Hebrews instructs us, is to help us grow in our faith. It is not a work, but an opportunity for Christians to grow and mature in our faith, as well as the opportunity to fellowship with other Believers.

With the amount of email Liveprayer receives each day, you can only imagine the amount of SPAM that we get. As I was weeding through the SPAM in my personal email account the other day, I actually had to stop and look carefully at a few, that looked almost like prayer requests but were SPAM for porn sites. If there is one thing in this world that upsets me more than anything else, it is the bold way that satan shares his message of sin with this world, and how afraid most Christians are to share our message of Truth and hope!

Satan brings the world a message that is designed to kill, steal, and destroy lives. He has NO FEAR in presenting that message as boldly as he is able to. Yet we, those who have placed our faith in Christ, who have the ONLY true message of everlasting life, who have the ONLY message of hope for this hurting and lost world, meekly, almost ashamedly, present our message in the most low-key form possible! WHY??? I actually got mad that if satan can be so diabolical and relentless in trying to destroy peoples lives, why can’t we be as relentless in trying to SAVE people’s lives???

Satan knows the weaknesses of man. He has man’s nature down to a science. Greed, sex, alcohol, drugs, gambling, food are the most base weaknesses. So satan uses the modern day media to flaunt his message of “greed is good,” sex is great any way that you can get it no matter what form it takes, alcohol is socially acceptable, drugs are the “in thing,” gambling is just harmless entertainment, and food is a necessity of life that we should enjoy no matter how much of it we eat.

These messages permeate the world that we live in. We are bombarded endlessly with them by the media to a point that we accept them as fact. Satan knows that this strategy works because there will be nobody bold enough to counter or challenge his message. His message in the mainstream media goes mostly unchallenged. HE REALIZES THAT VERY FEW CHRISTIANS IN A SECULAR FORUM WILL CHALLENGE WHAT HE SAYS!

The FACT IS, greed is NOT good, it is evil. Sex is designed ONLY in the confines of marriage. Alcohol affects your brain and is a crutch that many turn to, to numb their way thru life. Drugs are an escape from reality that will destroy you. Gambling is a misuse of the resources that God has entrusted to you and is poor stewardship. Food is necessary, but only when you consume the right kinds of food and the right amounts. Who out there is telling THIS SIDE, the TRUE SIDE, GOD’S SIDE of this story to the world at large???? Answer: not many!!!!

My friend, it is time for God’s people to stand up, to say, “DEVIL, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.” Our churches are just as much to blame!!! Many don’t even deal with the needs of their congregations, let alone the world outside the doors of the church. It is time to stand up and accept the responsibility God has given to those in leadership, those who call themselves Christians, and take His message of hope and everlasting life through Jesus Christ to this lost and sin-filled world. How can the devil be so bold with lies, and God’s people so timid with the truth???

I love you and care about you so much. Jesus in MANY parables told us that our time is short, we must be busy about our Father’s business. Now is the time to be aggressive. Now is the time when those who God has placed in roles of leadership must be willing to sacrifice all to take HIS message to this world at large. EVEN IF IT MEANS LOSING ALL THAT WE HAVE. We can never lose everything when we have Jesus!!!

The fact is, what we have is simply given to us by God to further His Kingdom, NOT to create our own personal fiefdoms. That is why when the opportunity came nearly 14 yrs ago to start Liveprayer, I had no problem committing ALL that we had to this ministry. It was a vehicle God could use to open hearts and share the everlasting message of faith through Jesus Christ with the lost and hurting of this world. It was a privilege to give all that we had to be able to share Christ with hurting people.

God is calling YOU today to be bold. Look around you. How bold is satan with a message of destruction? How much bolder should YOU be with a message of everlasting life? DO NOT LET THESE WORDS GO UNHEEDED TODAY. GOD IS CALLING ME AND YOU TO A LEVEL OF BOLDNESS LIKE NEVER BEFORE.

It is time to take on the same mindset of satan in regard to presenting our message. Satan has no fear, there are no limits to him. We must operate the same way. We must never tire, never lose sight of who the real audience is–the lost in this world!!! We must get outside the comfort zone of the existing church, Christian community, and be bold enough, creative enough, to share the message of hope and faith in Christ with this lost and hurting world. Now is the time, today is the day. Time is short!!! A lost and hurting world is waiting to hear the TRUTH!!!

Let this word today be a wake-up call to pastors, those who work in ministry. Let this also be a wake-up call to YOU. Just because others choose to stay within the safety of the Christian community, does not mean God is not calling you TO THE WORLD THAT YOU LIVE IN TO MINISTER. It is time to “think outside of the box”, quit doing what is comfortable, and start making some noise in the world at large as we proudly, and boldly proclaim that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way, the ONLY truth, the ONLY life, and the ONLY way to God! HE is the answer all men and women worldwide seek! God gave you this life to serve and glorify Him. We only get one chance to make a difference. God is calling YOU today to share the GOSPEL with the world!

IF SATAN IS SO BOLD WITH A LIE, HOW MUCH BOLDER SHOULD WE BE WITH THE TRUTH!!! SATAN IS RELENTLESS IN DESTROYING THE LIVES OF PEOPLE, WE HAVE TO BE JUST AS RELENTLESS IN SAVING THE LIVES OF PEOPLE WITH THE TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD!!!

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

The Headlines and Conversation of the Day are Screaming for this Nation to Turn Back to God

Leave a comment

(John 3;16, 17)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, I ask God daily to fill me with His Holy Spirit but I have never been given the gift of tongues. Will this make me a reject for the Kingdom of Heaven?

ANSWER: NO! The Devotional link included is about spiritual gifts, an issue there has been so much erroneous teaching about.

The headlines and conversation of the day are SCREAMING for this nation to turn back to God and His Truth!!! This is a different Devotional today. My un-filtered thoughts and why if we don’t as a nation turn back to God and HIS Truth we will see the full wrath and judgment of God just like the children of Israel did on many occasions when they turned their back on God!

Our President and government are using “children” as their excuse to try and enact new gun legislation, even though they don’t enforce the incredible amount of gun legislation already on the books. The fact is not ONE thing that has been talked about would have stopped in any way what happened that tragic day in Newtown, or in Aurora, or at Virginia Tech, or in Tucson. They speak of the 20 innocent children gunned down at the Sandy Hook school. HOW ABOUT THE 4,000 INNOCENT BABIES SLAUGHTERED EVERY 24 HOURS THAT THE PRESIDENT AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT PROMOTE AND SUPPORT?

You have a major TV network, NBC, that on their cable news channel MSNBC, has hosts and guest commentators who mock and demean Christians and those who believe the Bible is God’s Word and only Truth. They open cheer for the killing of innocent babies, the perversion of God’s Holy Institution of Marriage and the Family, and will never put on anyone who takes a real stand for Biblical Truth on the issues of the day!

I spent the better percentage of last year being openly castigated in the media and sadly by much of the “Christian community” for having the audacity to put souls over politics. In the end as the Bible teaches, it is GOD who ultimately decides who will rise to power. I warned people WHOEVER God allows who win the election, it would be a furtherance of His judgment on this nation.

Despite the endless efforts and supposed clout of the conservative talk radio world and websites and FOX News, President Obama still got re-elected because less people voted for a 5th generation high priest of a satan worshipping cult leading souls to hell with a false gospel who had a history of supporting abortion and gay marriage, than who voted for John McCain in 2008!

In the meantime, talkers like Rush and Hannity and others on the right, groups like Freedom Works (who has the audacity to ask people to give them money so they can give ousted founder Dick Armey a $4 MILLION severance), pacs run by guys like Rove and Morris, took in over several BILLION DOLLARS and accomplished what??? All they did was fear monger people to give them money, when the real problems had ZERO to do with politics!

As I warned people all last year, politics was not the answer, turning this nation back to God and Biblical Truth is! With the Democrats controlling the Senate, even if Romney had won, he could do virtually NOTHING to change what is happening in Washington. I actually find a small silver lining that his cult at least for a season is not mainstream, and the vast universe of lost souls with no faith won’t be lured into the lies of the Mormon cult and their souls burn in hell for all of etenrity.

One of the most dangerous men alive today is Glenn Beck. As I warned people years ago, he would use his media platforms to promote his Mormon cult. It has been sickening to watch supposed men of God like David Barton, John Hagee, James Robison, and others, allow themselves to be bought and paid for like a cheap suit by Beck to give him credibility with Christians that he depends on to fund his $50 million a year empire. A positive outcome of the election is that his influence has been greatly minimized.

The greatest divide in this nation today is NOT race, but true followers of Jesus Christ and those who have rejected the Lord and Biblical Truth. The media doesn’t even try any longer to hide their animosity towards those who believe the Bible and have put their faith in Christ. The public at large is hostile to Christians because we have shut our mouths and not stood firm for our faith. When someone is bold enough to do so, they are destroyed!

Gutless “pastors” like Osteen, compromisers and marketeers like Rick Warren, those who have promoted the watered down and gutless “seeker” churches, professional “Christian leaders” like Ralph Reed, Mark DeMoss, and a host of others who sell out the faith in a second for a buck, have created a generation of weak and infective Christians who have forsaken Biblical Truth in order to “get along.”

There is still a remnant, God still has a people. A dear friend Roger Breland who founded the group TRUTH sings a great song written by the Gaither’s, “The Church Triumphant.” I told people over a decade ago what this nation would be like today, and sadly everything I said has come to pass. If we don’t stand up for our faith now, the soul of this nation is lost. WE HAVE NO MORE TIME!

I love you and care about you so much. Liveprayer has been raised up over these nearly 14 years to lead this charge. We will stand tall. Even when everyone else runs and hides we will be here. To my dying breath I will proclaim the Gospel! I am asking you today to stand with me! God has not allowed our lives to cross by accident. There are no coincidences with the Lord. He has allowed us to created the vehicles to accomplish this work. OUR TIME IS NOW!!!

Please pray for me as we work over the next few weeks to put the last few media pieces in place we must have. Also, will everyone do me a huge favor and take 3 minutes, 180 seconds, and seek the Lord what HE is calling you to do today to help me financially. I make the sacrifce every day as I have for nearly 14 years, since I would never ask you to do what I wouldn’t do.

I still have $13,000 that I need immediately to cover the rest of our 2012 operations. Over the next 13 days of January, I need to bring in the $40,000 we need for this month’s operations. Please pray and do whatever you can to help me today to insure these basic operational costs are taken care of. I need now more than every to focus 100% of my attention on helping to guide this nation back to God and His Truth and don’t need this daily pressure and distraction.

The state of this nation is desperate. While it is easy to focus on the finical and political issues we face, the biggest problem is the spritual issues we face. Unless we turn back to God and His Truth, we are finished. We have no more time. We must act. The next few months will determine if we will be like the children of Nineveh or the children of Sodom and Gomorrah!

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