The Byproduct of the Breakdown of Marriage is the Horror You See in the News Each Day

Leave a comment

(Genesis 1:28, 2:24; Deuteronomy 6:7; Proverbs 22:6; Malachi 2:16; 2 Corinthians 12:14; Ephesians 6:4; Psalms 127:3)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, I heard that prophet Ezekiel is used in the Koran and mentioned by Muslims. How can that be and why?

ANSWER: Many cults and false religions plagiarize parts of the Bible. Much of the Qu’ran is simply plagiarism of the Old Testament, as is much of the Book of Mormon.

The byproduct of the breakdown of marriage and the family is the horror you see in the news each day! How do you explain the pure unadulterated acts of evil we see in the news on a daily basis? How do you explain the non-stop violence and death that is day to day life in much of the nation? All we are witnessing in the news on a daily basis, the heinous acts of evil randomly visited upon people, the senseless killings, ALL are what I warned you about 10 years ago when I said that the breakdown of marriage and the family would destroy this nation from within!

Without question, the number one problem in our society today is the breakdown of marriage and the family. God’s Holy Institution of Marriage between a man and a woman for life is His perfect plan for a man and woman to become one and share this journey through life. A husband and wife having children and raising them in the admonition of the Lord is God’s plan for the family. This plan was instituted in the Garden of Eden and has NEVER CHANGED throughout the generations. Regardless of how man has tried to redefine marriage, redefine what a family is, GOD’S DEFINITION HAS NEVER OR EVER WILL CHANGE!

The vast percentage of prayer requests we get each day are from people whose problems can be directly tied to issues in their marriage or family. For those who are single today, please hear my heart. I can never emphasize enough what a critical decision it is to get married and to whom you marry. This is a life-changing event and will not only involve you but your future children as well. Please, don’t ever underestimate the importance of marriage and how it will affect the rest of your life and the lives of your future children.

“That is why you cannot ignore God’s warning in 2 Corinthians 6:14, “Do not be unequally yoked with a non-believer.” Just saying they are saved is not enough. Do you actually see the fruit of their relationship with Christ in their daily life? Lastly, even if the person you are praying about marrying is a Christian and living their life for the Lord, you still need to take the time to build a spiritual foundation together and openly and honestly talk through all of the various issues of life. Through this process God will confirm to you both that this is part of His plan for your lives.

Also, this is a big reason why God designed sex FOR MARRIAGE ONLY! A natural by-product of sexual relations is a child. God never intended children to be raised by a mother alone. That is why sex outside of marriage is a sin and not part of His plan since it may result in having a child. It is God’s plan for children to be raised by a mother and father who are committed to each other for life through marriage. There can never be a better environment for raising a child than by a mother and father who are surrendered to the Lord and to each other.

As devastating and life changing as divorce is on the parties involved, as devastating and life changing as having a child outside of marriage is on the woman, it is impossible to ever comprehend the damage done to the children involved in a divorce or those born outside of marriage. In the past 40 years as more and more marriages have ended in divorce, as more women are having children outside of marriage, the negative effect on society is impossible to ignore. I would be willing, based on the 40,000+ prayer requests we receive every day here at Liveprayer, to boldly say without hesitation that the current breakdown of our society can be directly linked to the breakdown of marriage and the family.

An incredible number of children are growing up today in single parent homes or homes where their natural parent is on their second, third, even fourth spouse. Many children are growing up in blended homes where they have brothers and sisters by numerous mothers and fathers. It is common for many children to grow up today in several different homes, during the week in one home and the weekends in another.

Many children become pawns in hostile divorce cases where they are forced to choose one parent over another, in some cases being manipulated to lie about one parent, often being moved overnight from one home to another as different rulings come down from the courts. Physical, emotional, and sexual abuse are experienced by a growing number of children due to the fact they are living with adults who are not their natural mothers or fathers and the God-given natural love a mother and father have for their child simply doesn’t exist.

You can only imagine the damage done to children who grow up in these types of environments. Sadly, we deal daily with children as young as 12, all the way through adults who have never been able to get beyond their tragic childhoods. The results are an alarming number of children who need professional help and are on some sort of daily medication for emotional and behavioral problems. You have children and adults who have never known real love in their life falling, instead, for the love this world promotes through sex.

You have so many children and young adults who have never matured socially and end up with self-esteem problems, never fitting in with others their own age. You have so many children and young adults who have so much pain in their life they look to the world’s solution of escaping through drugs, alcohol, and food. The suicide rate of children and young adults is at an all time high. I could go on and on but I wish you could sit here in my office every day and read the stories of these children and young adults who live in great pain each day and have never known how wonderful this life can really be.

THE LARGER PROBLEM is that these children and young adults who have had their lives damaged are growing up and they are having children of their own. Since they have no idea what God’s plan for marriage and family is, they will now be bringing another generation of children into this world living in ungodly environments who are damaged like they are, and this cycle will simply continue with more and more people living their lives totally void of God and without any understanding of Christ, His love, or God’s Word. These people are also the prime targets for the cults and false religions of the world who aggressively market themselves as the answer to these people who are desperately looking for hope in their life, when the only true hope there is, is in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

I love you and care about you so much. The purpose of this message today is three fold. First, as a warning to those who are not married how serious and life changing that decision will be, and how it will not only affect the rest of your life, but the life of those children you will bring into this world. The second is to hopefully open the eyes of those adults who may be thinking about getting a divorce, and ask that you pray about humbling yourself before the Lord and asking Him to bring healing and restoration to your marriage, not just for your sake but for the sake of your children. Lastly, as a word of encouragement to you moms and dads who have gone through the pain of being divorced, to you moms who have had children outside of marriage and to the children and young adults who are currently growing up in homes without their natural mother and/or father.

For those who have been through the pain of being divorced, let me assure you that the Lord loves you and wants to help you heal. For those women who have had a child or children outside of marriage, I pray that you will find the Lord’s forgiveness in His promise to you in 1 John 1:9. God still has much for you to do with the rest of your life as well as many blessings for you to enjoy.

If you are now married, God has given you a second chance to do it His way. Realize that you have made a lifetime commitment to your spouse and that if you will honor your vows to each other and to God, He will richly bless your both for many years to come. For those who are still single, I will pray today that in His perfect timing, He will bring into your life a Godly man or woman to share the rest of your journey with in His Holy Institution of Marriage.

If you have children, please don’t underestimate what they have lived through. They need your love and attention and nurturing now more than ever. The number one ministry you will ever have in your life is to your children. Raise them in the admonition of the Lord, pray with them every night before they go to bed, make sure they are in church. Laying a foundation of faith in their life will not only sustain them for the rest of their days on this earth but will help them to find the hope and strength to overcome whatever they have had to experience already in their young lives. God is a God of healing and He can bring healing to your children.

Also, know that God will make you adequate. If for this season you are not in God’s plan for the family, know that He will help you and meet your every need. I realize that it is not easy, but the Lord will give you wisdom, favor, encouragement, as you raise your child or children. Find your hope in the Lord each day and look to Him for direction and provision, He will not let you down. Know that I am praying for you and will stand with you as you raise your children for the glory of God!

Let me close with a word of hope and encouragement for you children and young adults that may be growing up with only one parent or in some sort of blended home. First of all, God loves you very much. YOU ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CHOICES YOUR PARENTS HAVE MADE. IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT.

Life can be very difficult at times, and sadly, you have found that out at a very young age but never doubt that Christ loves you so much and has a plan and purpose for your life. If you will take time each day to pray to Jesus, read the Bible, get to church each Sunday, and follow Christ, He will give you the strength to get through whatever you are facing in your life. I pray today that you will turn to Him and find His peace and joy in your life. Jesus is your hope and your answer

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

The Man who Claims He is Jesus Christ is Dead and He wasn’t Resurrected

Leave a comment

(Matthew 24:4, 2 Timothy 3:1-9; 2 Peter 3:3-10)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, what exactly is required to surrender 100% to Christ and live by faith?

ANSWER: Die to self daily. That is done by waking up praying, getting in the Word first thing, and staying “plugged in” to God throughout the day. During the day, make decisions pleasing and acceptable to God. Don’t forget for one minute you are HIS ambassador. Find ways to serve Him. Trust Him with the problems you encounter throughout the day. Day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, you learn to die to self daily and live for Him instinctively.

“Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.” Matthew 24:4

The man who claims he is Jesus Christ, Jose Luis de Jesus Miranda from Puerto Rico is DEAD! And guess what? He wasn’t resurrected!!! Miranda headed a cult that preached sin no longer exists and there is no devil. His cult was based out of Miami and had an international ministry with thousands of followers on his website. I told you about this fraud years ago, but I am dealing with him today because it was the Jesus of the Bible who declared that in the last days there would be MANY who come in His name, claiming to be our Lord. He added that these false Christs would deceive many.

The fact is, Jesus will return just as He promised when He ascended to the Father from the Mt. of Olives in Acts Chapter 1. However, make no mistake, when He does return the world will know it. He is not coming back to build buildings, do TV programs, wear diamond encrusted watches, and drive around in armored luxury cars with body guards like this fraud Miranda did. When our Lord does return, he won’t be here to acquire the temporal things of this world and live like an earthly king. No my friend, He will be coming for the righteous (1 Thessalonians 4:16,17), He will destroy the wicked (Luke 17:26-30), and He will bring salvation to those who will believe in Him (Hebrews (9:26-28).

It is sad that this conman was able to lead so many people astray. But as I talked about him years ago, I realized that our Lord warned us of people like this for a reason. We know Jesus is coming back, and because many who love the Lord and are anxiously awaiting His return, the Biblically illiterate could easily be taken in by a tool of satan like Miranda who claims he was Jesus, and has returned just like He promised.

There was nothing really unique about Miranda. The fact is, over the past 2,000 years, there have been many who have clamed to be Jesus, just as He said there would be. However, in today’s world of modern communication, 24 hour cable news, Miranda gained much fame and recognition due to all of the media coverage he received. He wisely tapped into the two most powerful communication tools of our day, the Internet and television, to bring his false message to the masses. He is actually using the same tools to deceive people that we use at Liveprayer every day to bring the masses the Truth and the hope we have in the real Jesus of Nazareth!

The fact is, Miranda was one of many, many such con artists who have come before him over the last 2,000 years, are operating today, and will operate until our Lord returns. He is no different than another such con artist using the Lord by the name of Glenn Beck! While Beck doesn’t claim to be Jesus, he does LIE to the masses by claiming to be a Christian when he has put his faith in the false jesus of his satanic Mormon cult. With the better percentage of the last two generations having never been to church, with the Biblical illiteracy that exists in the church today, coupled with the confusion created when he is able to buy many of the top name in Christianity to help him perpetuate his fraud, he is much more dangerous than an obvious fraud like Miranda.

Beck has masterfully channeled the fear and anger of those who espouse a conservative political ideology, intertwines the Bible (though he and those in his cult reject the Bible as a flawed and incomplete book), God (though the god of Beck’s cult used to be a man like you and I), and Jesus (though the jesus of Beck’s cult is not a deity and the brother of Lucifer) to confuse the ignorant in his audience.

His latest and greatest scam to generate some of the $60 million he will take in this year (over 10% he proudly boasts is tithed to “his church,” which helps his cult advance its’ global work of leading souls to hell!), is his “BLAZE” TV “network.” It consists of a simulcast of his radio program and the hour he used to do at FOX plus a few other random programs. He asks people to pay him $10 a month, but is now getting added to some small existing cable networks where people who want can watch for free. That is like sending ESPN a check for $10 a month even though you can see them on your existing satellite or cable network!

The amazing thing about this satan empowered cult member is that NOTHING he says on his radio program isn’t said by Rush, Hannity, Levin, or any number of dozens of conservative radio hosts every day. As for his “TV network,” there is already a conservative news organization with worldwide resources called FOX News, and his Mormon propaganda “news website” has the same stories as dozens of other conservative websites have every day. Beck, like Miranda, is the consummate con artist and charlatan who have found creative ways to fleece the ignorant, both perverting the name of Jesus!!!

As I have shared with you often, we are living in the last days. Only God knows the moment our Lord will return, but based on the signs of the last days given in the Bible these are the last days. In light of all that is happening around the world and the escalating problems in the Middle East, we are seeing history and Bible prophesy unfold before our eyes. There is no more time to play. There is no more time to be apathetic about our faith. There is no more time to allow ourselves to be distracted by the enemy who sends false Jesus’, uses division in the Body of Christ, and our own personal weaknesses to keep us from serving God.

My friend, the battle cry has clearly sounded. The trumpet of warning is clearly being blown for all to hear. The events that are unfolding in our nation, around the world, right before our very eyes is God’s way of saying, “NOW my children, prepare yourselves and this world for the return of Christ!!!” We can never lose sight of the big picture. Jesus Christ is coming soon, in the twinkling of an eye. Are we really ready for that? Is this world really ready for that?

I love you and care about you very much. I have received so much mail in the last years from people concerned these charlatans like Miranda and the events unfolding around the world. Let me simply say this. Only God knows the hour, minute, second of Christ’s return. Until then, He has given us very clear instructions that we are to be about His business until that glorious moment. You do not have to be a Biblical scholar to read passages that tell us clearly we are in the last days. He is coming is very soon. Now more than ever we need to get past our own problems, because God needs His children, all His children on the front lines.

Just like our brave men and women of the armed services put their lives on the line daily in defense of our great nation, our Commander in Chief God is asking each one in His army to do likewise. This is not a video game. The stakes are eternal life versus eternal damnation. Too many of God’s children are AWOL at this critical moment. I pray today that you will hear His call to battle and understand that answering that call is not an option. It is something that each and everyone of His children is required to do each day. We must answer the call, fight the good fight of faith.

These my friend are the last days!!! “Jesus” Miranda is dead and burning in hell, but the real Jesus IS COMING AT ANY MOMENT AND WE BETTER BE READY!!!

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

Bill Keller

Al Jazeera, Chris Christie, and Duck Dynasty

Leave a comment

(Jonah 3)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, my good friend who is a Christian told me that her adult son told her he was gay. What should be my response to her. She loves her son dearly and I was at a loss for words.

ANSWER: Assure him he is NOT gay since there is no such thing as “being gay.” People are not born gay, it is a CHOICE, an act. It is an act God calls a sin. She needs to let him know that she loves him, is praying for him, and is believing that he will turn from this lie and to God for deliverance. She MUST be the one, maybe the only one, to tell him this truth. Lastly, keep the communication lines open, since it is only a matter of time before his sin catches up to him as it does with everyone, and that is when he will need her love the most.

A convergence of three major issues on the same day that highlight the state of this nation. Al Jezeera and the rise of Islam, Chris Christie and the ever expanding radical homosexual agenda, and Duck Dynasty lambasting the fact we slaughter apx. 4,000 innocent babies every 24 hours were all three in the news in a major way.

With little fanfare and fewer viewers, Al Jazeera USA, the sister network of Al Jazeera out of Qatar signed on to 48 million homes in the US. The Islamic version of Al Jazeera has long had ties to terror groups, being the network that would always air the videos produced by Osama Bin Laden. This network is nothing but a propaganda arm for Islam (domination of the world by any means), and if anyone thinks the US version will be anything else they need to wake up.

Islam now has their very own TV network in the US to brainwash people with their worldview, while using it as a recruitment tool for people in this nation to convert to Islam. CAIR and other Muslim extremist groups had already intimidated virtually every US TV network to portray Islam in a favorable light, while aggressively coming after anyone in the media like myself who actually told the truth about this false religion from the pits of hell. With a nation so far from Biblical Truth as it is, this will simply be another instrument satan can use to take the lost masses further from the Truth of the Bible while leading their souls to hell.

In New Jersey, bombastic Governor Chris Christie signed legislation stating that people are “born gay” and outlawing gay conversion therapy. This is a program designed to help those who say they are gay become straight. I have personally NEVER been a fan of this type of therapy, since it agrees with the lie people are born gay and thus need to be converted. NOBODY IS BORN GAY…IT IS A CHOICE!

People CHOOSE to engage in acts of homosexuality, just like they choose to drink, to do drugs, to gamble, or anything else people become enslaved to. It is an ACT. A CHOICE! You deal with someone who makes these choices like you do an alcoholic, drug addict, or gambler. They have to WANT to change their behavior and make different choices. That is first and foremost. At that point, you can begin to work with them on a plan for deliverance.

Governor Christie for all of his blather, is nothing but a typical politician who will bow to whichever way the political winds are blowing that day. This was simply his gift to the homosexual community who in turn he expects to support him when he runs for re-election in a few months, and most likely, looks to become the Republican nominee for President in 2016. NOBODY IS BORN GAY, that is simply the lie told by the homosexual community long enough and loud enough people have bought into it!

Lastly yesterday was the breath of fresh air that is the crew from the wildly popular reality program “Duck Dynasty.” Phil Robertson recently gave an impassioned 4-minute speech on the right to life. He stated, “You have a God given right to live!” He went on to ask what has happened to this nation? AMEN!!! How sad is it when a reality TV star tells more truth in 4 minutes than all of the motivation gurus like Osteen, the prosperity pimps on Christian TV, and a generation of gutless pastors say in a year!!!

I love you and care about you so much. At the end of the day, this convergence of these 3 critical topics facing our nation in one day shines a bright light on how far we are from God, The answer to Phil Robertson’s question is simple, WE HAVE TURNED FROM GOD AND HIS TRUTH! It is no more complicated than that. The answer to the problems of this nation is equally as simple, TURN BACK TO GOD AND HIS TRUTH!

While others are busy building buildings, buying the newest private jet, adding to their fleet of luxury cars, finding a 4th mansion to buy, preaching to the choir under the guise of the gospel to pay for it all, I am more convicted than ever on this final work God has called me and His minsitry here to fulfill. Before my health issues several weeks ago I was all in, now I am ALL IN!!! I will not be Moses who never saw the Promised Land. I want to see the national revival and this nation bow on its’ knees to God and ask His forgiveness!!!

I had many hours to pray, to be still before the Lord, to pray more, to beg God for more vision, to beg God for more people to help me, to ask the Lord to simply guide me to fulfill His desire to see this nation once again turn to the Almighty and His Truth. We have the example in Nineveh!

In my down time, I realized I have another gear I never knew about. I will be in that gear from now until Glory. I will be asking those in the Liveprayer family to take this journey with me in whatever way God calls them to. I know this, I will not stand before the Lord on the day He calls me home with my head hung down and ask Him to forgive me for not fulfilling His calling on my life!!!!

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

Bill Keller

God Wants to Help You Change Your Circumstances

Leave a comment

(Proverbs 14:23)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, what do I say to an unbeliever when they are telling us that they are praying for one of our family members?

ANSWER: Say “thank you!” Seriously, if they believe in prayer enough to do so, that is a great sign. Now, you need to get them alone for a while and ask them WHO they were praying to? Regardless the answer, it opens the door for you to share the Gospel and enocurage them to take the next step and give their heart and life to Jesus by faith.

As you can imagine, each day the volume of emails that pour into Liveprayer.com are mostly prayer requests from people living through very difficult circumstances in their life. The special word I have for you today is this. “God wants to help you change your circumstances!” While prayer needs to be the first thing that we do, and will be a key part of the process throughout, God expects us to do our part in the changing of our circumstances.

So many people who are hurting, in the midst of dealing with great problems in their life, will simply live each day with those problems and do nothing. My friend, your circumstances are not going to change until YOU make the effort to change them. You are not going to magically wake up one morning and have everything be okay. That is not reality. If you want things to change, YOU need to be an active part of making that happen.

Like everything, there is a right way and a wrong way to make changes in your life. As I mentioned, prayer is the first step. The second step is getting a gameplan. Use others in your life that you can trust to help you formulate that plan. The plan will usually not be something outlandish, but will normally be very practical and based on good common sense. Also, whatever plan that the Lord helps you to formulate, realize that it will not be something that will cause things to magically change overnight. You didn’t get into the problems that you are facing overnight, and rarely will God deliver you from them overnight.

Many times, our problems can be traced to sin, rebellion, in our life. Doing things our way instead of God’s way. Once we decide to turn to God, He will help us work our way out of the problem over a period of time. It is never easy, but we start to learn basic principles like self-discipline, operating in His strength and not ours, depending on Him each step of the way. Theses are good elements that we should learn to incorporate into our daily lives to help us avoid many of the problems life throws at us in the first place.

Once you have the plan and are working it faithfully each day, you will start to see things in your life change for the better. Again, the changes won’t happen overnight, but gradually, day by day. The worst thing that you can do though is do nothing. You can not expect your circumstances to change by doing nothing.

The reason I find most people don’t take an active role in the changing of their circumstances is because as painful as things may be, they are afraid of change. The Bible tells us we are not to have a spirit of fear. If you are serious about seeing your circumstances change, you must get serious about trusting God to help you make those changes. We are often more comfortable living in the pain we know, then trusting God who has promised to help us gain victory.

I love you and care about you so much. I pray today that those of you who are dealing with circumstances in your life that need to be changed, will heed this special word today, and get serious about making those changes. God will give you the wisdom to formulate a workable plan, He will give you the strength each day to follow through, and He will lead you to victory.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LIVE IN PAIN ANY LONGER. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LIVE IN THE CIRCUMSTANCES YOU ARE IN ANY LONGER. TODAY IS YOUR DAY. TODAY IS YOUR DAY. TODAY IS YOUR DAY. NOW IS THE TIME. TRUST GOD AND LET HIM LEAD YOU OUT OF EGYPT, AND INTO THE PROMISED LAND. THE SAME GOD THAT LED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL FROM BONDAGE MANY YEARS AGO, IS THE SAME GOD WHO WILL LEAD YOU OUT OF BONDAGE TODAY!!!

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

My Situation

Leave a comment

(John 14:6)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, some people are convinced that Islam is the religion of the antichrist. Do you concur with them?

ANSWER: ABSOLUTELY NOT! The religion of the anti-Christ will be some sort of new age metamorphosis that currently doesn’t exist, but will officially supercede all other existing religions.

My situation. The critical key to all Liveprayer has accomplished these past 14 years has been my ability to be there literally every day to create all of the minsitry content such as the Daily Devotional, the TV program, the years we also were on radio, in addition to the hundreds of appearances in the secular media whether it was on fox News, CNN, being interviewed by hundreds of newspapers from around the world, Howard Stern’s radio program, taking on the leading Muslim activists such as CAIR, debating top apologists from the Mormon cult, leading atheists, supporters of abortion, and so much more that enabled me to bring the Truth of God’s Word and the Gospel into the marketplace in a bold and visible way.

The other critical key to Liveprayer is that from day one I refused to use professional fundraisers or such tactics used by most ministries to raise funds. I simply shared our needs each month in faith, personally developing key relationships with friends of Liveprayer, and sharing the vision of God’s work here with people daily in asking them to support our unique efforts. That is something that I have to spend several hours 6 days a week doing to insure the funds we need to operate each month come in.

Since my heart attack on the 8th of the this month, I was forced for the first time to abandon my normal work schedule for 3 days. That may not sound like much, but every day is critical both in terms of our content that millions worldwide rely on, and my ability to network with our supporters to share our current needs. By Sunday the 11th, I was back catching up from the previous 3 days and on Monday went back to a normal work schedule that also included doing our TV program from Midnight-2am that evening. Despite being a bit weak, I was able to keep my normal schedule last Tuesday and Wednesday as well. Thursday morning I knew I had pushed too far.

After meeting with my doctors Thursday, we agreed that I would not to the TV program Thursday or Friday and at least free up those 2 hours of prep and 2 hours of air time to relax and sleep. Saturday and Sunday aren’t quite as challenging with no TV program to do. However, when I went in this morning for a check-up, they told me that I was to shut it down Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. No TV. No work other than an hour to check on things. They told me to keep pushing it and the next time I might not make it.

While I am a man of great faith, since it is only my faith that has taken me this far and has been used by God to impact tens of millions worldwide, I feel that my final work (work that I know has been under non-stop assault since the final piece, the TV show re-launched in May) was still to be completed. If I wanted to be here to see it through, I better use some common sense and listen.

So we have a powerful message for Wednesday and Thursday’s Devotionals I wrote over the weekend (always write them a day in advance), Monday and Tuesday we will play two great encore presentations of past TV programs. My biggest concern is Monday and Tuesday are my biggest days for setting up the finances for the rest of the week. As we head into the final 11 days of the month we still need to bring in the final $38,000 of our monthly operating expenses.

$15,000 of that is critical before Friday. Once I am back up and working, I can concentrate on the other $23,000, but I am desperately asking for those in the Liveprayer family to help me insure that the $15,000 I must have to operate by Friday will be here. If one or two friends can overnight us a special gift for our anniversary of $5,000, I have no doubt everyone else giving as they are able will cover the other $5,000.

I have done my best for 14 yrs to be here daily for those in the Liveprayer family, and those outside, in their time of need. Liveprayer is on the verge with the TV program doing so well of having all of the pieces in place to help lead this lost land back to God and HIS Truth…our only hope! It is one of those rare times when I am helpless to do anything for the next two days and have to depend on God to raise up those friends who are able to hold my arms up. I hate to be in such a position, but God knows how to humble all of us at different times and I am humbling asking you to help me today.

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 all of your love and prayers these past few weeks. I know God has work for me to finish and I have no choice to but to listen to my doctors if I want to see that day. For the next day or so I will rest, pray, seek the Lord, and leave HIS work here in the hands of the Liveprayer family. God bless you!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

(1 Thessalonians 4:3, Romans 1:18-32, 1 Corinthians 6:9-1)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, what do you think of Oprah’s comments about white people being responsible for racism?

ANSWER: First, I took so much heat over 12 years ago when I was the only person in the media warning people what a dangerous person she was. As for her race comments, she has no shame since her 1 billion dollar fortune has come largley from WHITE WOMEN! Hell will be well populated with lost souls who bought into Oprah’s new age lies from hell. Here is a link to my Devotional archives, type in keyword OPRAH and all of the Devotionals over the years will come up: http://www.liveprayer.com/darchive.cfm

***UPDATE: Here is an update on yesterday’s Devotional on the healthcare debate, that underlines the tactics those who have a political agenda are using. “MSNBC host Ed Schultz unleashed Saturday on Christians who oppose President Obama’s landmark healthcare law, branding them as ‘phony Christians’ and saying the repeal of the law would certainly result in the death of innocent children.” The FACT IS, money from Obamacare will flow to abortion providers like Planned Parenthood whose number one business is to KILL INNOCENT CHILDREN!!!

TRANSGENDERED CHILDREN??? The state of California has now passed a law so that transgendered children can use either a boy’s or a girl’s bathroom. That is right..TRANSGENDERED CHILDREN!!! The latest perversion from the homosexual community is making children, as young as 4 and 5, believe they are not who God created them to be. With the help of parents who have bought into the radical homosexual agenda, little boys are being told they are really a little girl, and little girls are being told they are really little boys. These children know as much about sexuality as they do rocket science!

I told you over and over once your cross the line into such perversion where does it stop???

I warned you over a decade ago, the homosexual community was coming after your children. They have been patient and done a masterful job over the past 2 decades to indoctrinate from birth that homosexuality is a perfectly acceptable and even glamorous lifestyle. They have accomplished this through the schools, the media, and yes, even the church! Today, well over 60% of young adults 25 and under see nothing wrong with this CHOICE of unnatural, unhealthy, and perverted sex. Worse, over 40% of young adults 25 and under who identify themselves as “Christians” have no problem with the sin of homosexuality!!!

I get emails daily that start out by saying, “I am a homosexual.” Whenever that happens, I immediately point out the fact that there is no such thing as a homosexual, only a homosexual act. There are people who CHOOSE to have sex with people of the same sex, but that is a sexual act, not what a person is. I have to admit, the saddest emails like this are from young men and women, clearly in their teens, calling up and claiming to be “gay” or “lesbian.” Once again, I want to expose the “gay lie” being told to YOUR children!

The purpose of this Devotional today is to warn those who are not aware to what extent the pro-homosexual agenda is being fulfilled and to hopefully wake up the bloated, weak, and apathetic church that has to bear much of the responsibility for the moral decay of our culture. The goal of those who have chosen the homosexual lifestyle is to justify their sinful choice that is inherently destructive both to society and themselves. They are trying to force society to validate legally and ethically their choice of sexual behavior and relationships, and to enact laws that allow them to promote this sinful choice to our children as normal, even desirable behavior.

That is what is most upsetting to me. Whether you understand it or not, YOUR children are being targeted by the pro-homosexual community to indoctrinate them almost from birth that this choice of sexual relationship is normal, acceptable, and desirable. They have done this through infiltrating the school curriculum with pro-homosexual material, they have done this through the 3,000+ “gay clubs” in schools all over the nation, and they have masterfully used the media (TV, movies, Internet, music) to, day after day after day tell the world there is nothing wrong with this choice of sexuality.

It is very disturbing to hear a 14-year-old boy, a 15-year-old girl claiming to be gay or lesbian. When pressed if they were actually having sex they usually say no. The fact is, a 14-year-old boy or a 15-year-old girl are no more gay or lesbian than I am a giraffe! Just because I call myself a giraffe doesn’t make me one. They have simply bought into the “gay lie” that is being promoted by the pro-homosexual community and told loud enough, often enough in our society that these CHILDREN have this warped idea they are something other than how God created them. GOD DID NOT CREATE MEN TO HAVE SEX WITH MEN, OR WOMEN TO HAVE SEX WITH WOMEN! Those who do are committing unnatural acts in complete rebellion to God.

Theologically this is not even a debatable issue. All through the Bible, from the Old Testament through the New, homosexuality is defined by God as a sin, PERIOD. God calls it an ABOMINATION! I have heard the tortured theological arguments homosexuals have made, but there is absolutely NO WAY to change the fact this act is a sin. Just because there is now a homosexual version of the Bible where they have literally changed the passages that call this act a sin, that does NOT change God’s inspired, inerrant Word.

The two greatest lies the pro-homosexual community has put out are that 1) homosexuality is something that you are “born with,” 2) 10% or more in our society are homosexual. First, modern science has CLEARLY rejected and been unable to prove that ANYONE is “born gay.” TAKING YOUR PANTS OFF TO HAVE SEX IS A CHOICE!!!! GOD DID NOT MAKE ANYONE “GAY!” PEOPLE CHOOSE TO ENGAGE IN HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOR!!!! LIKE ALL SIN, ONCE YOU DO IT LONG ENOUGH, IT MAY SEEM ‘NATURAL’, BUT IT IS STILL A CHOICE THAT YOU MAKE. The “struggle” people who choose this sin speak of is the same “struggle” we all have, to obey God or to sin! Also, all legitimate studies done by the non-homosexual community clearly show that less then 1% of the population EVER engage in this type of sexual sin.

A foolish argument from those who choose this sin is that “why would anyone choose something that brought them ridicule, condemnation, and the hatred of so many?” People make that choice every day! I deal daily with men and women who CHOOSE to commit adultery and destroy their marriage, lose the love and respect of their children, in many cases ruin their career. People who choose sin choose to deal with the consequences of their sin.

Of course, anyone who dares to speak up on this issue is labeled as “intolerant” and a “homophobe.” So this group that calls for tolerance by others, is very INTOLERANT when someone opposes their views. They also use the word “homophobe” to intimidate people from speaking out against their sexual choice.

I love you and care about you so much. Parents, you need to wake up and be aware what other parents are teaching their children! You better wake up and be aware that your daughters are being taught at school that it is “cool” to have sex with other girls, it is called “lesbian chic.” You also better be aware that your sons are being taught having a boyfriend is the “in thing.” Lastly, you better be VERY AWARE of what is on television, in music, and out in the culture that is constantly sending the message to your children that homosexuality is a normal and acceptable CHOICE!

The church better wake up and realize that while they have been building great buildings and getting fat, satan has been busy using the sin of homosexuality to destroy the lives of our children. As much of an abomination as homosexual churches are, equally as abominable to God are regular churches that accept homosexuality as a normal lifestyle!

We live in a free society. If people who have chosen to engage in homosexual activity want to have their own schools, their own churches, their own television network, they have every right to. It is about time the church wakes up and realizes that those who promote this sin are bold and are stopping at NOTHING to get their message out to the masses, and targeting the children!

THAT is why I am always talking about how the church, those who know Christ as their Savior, have got to quit preaching to the choir and start taking the hope and love of Christ to the world at large. As those who follow Christ, we also have a responsibility to pray for those who are in this bondage, for God to open their hearts to the truth of His Word, and to turn from their sin. Only God can change hearts, and for those who are in bondage to the sin of homosexuality, we must pray for them to open their hearts and turn from their sin.

Until Jesus returns, we will always have those who choose a perverted form of sex with those of their own gender, just like we will always have those who choose to pervert sex by having it outside of the bonds of marriage. While we can never accept their choice since it is clearly against God’s Word, we must pray for them, just like we must pray for everyone who is battling sin in their life.

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

The Biblical Truth about the Healthcare Debate

Leave a comment

(James 5:14)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, Sometimes I wonder how you do it. You dish out an unpopular message to the world and you take abuse for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Don’t you ever get tempted to soften the message in hopes of getting less persecution? And fitting in to the world with a weak, comfy Christian message?

ANSWER: This is a question I get every day. The answer surprisingly is NO! No sane person enjoys being persecuted, or taking the slings and arrows. No sane person would want to have 8-10 death threats a month as I have for over 10 years now. However, there IS a price to serving the Lord. Part of that price is to be persecuted, mocked, laughed at, and scorned. However, that is a small price to pay considering that Jesus went to the cross to pay for my sins, your sins, and the sins of all mankind! Softening the message is NOT an option, since like each of us, I will die one day and stand before God. I want that to be a great experience, and my life is dedicated to hearing His words, “Well done thou good and faithful servant!”

The Biblical Truth about the healthcare debate. I have been asked almost daily, to comment on Obamacare. It is a complete mess and in the end will destroy the best healthcare system in the world. Of course the system wasn’t perfect, but there is a reason people from all over the world came to the US for health issues.

While this is mostly a political issue, there is a spiritual component to this controversial topic that I would like to address today. What would Jesus do about the current healthcare debate? During the weeks leading up to the vote to pass Obamacare, President Obama said that Jesus would support his plan for the government to take over the healthcare industry, giving several Biblical quotes to support his claim.

I’m sure Jesus would be all for this plan that will also include using tax dollars to slaughter innocent babies!!! Even satan quoted scripture when he tempted Jesus. It is the height of audacity for this man who lives his life in complete rebellion to God and His Word on every spiritual issue of our day to quote Scripture in hopes of fulfilling his political goals!

The argument President Obama and many made was that Jesus would support their efforts to socialize the healthcare industry since the Lord would want every person to have medical insurance. I have never head a more tortured use of our Lord than those who are making this case. Of course, it falls right into line with the church of 2013 being dominated by the religious left that has embraced a liberal theology, fueled by the
seeker/purpose-driven/ emerging church marketing strategies that don’t seek to bring converts to the faith into the church, only warm bodies. To do that they must abandon the absolutes of the Bible and focus on issues like world huger, AIDS in Africa, and other social issues like HEALTHCARE!

Did you know that it was in 1890 when the first “sickness coverage” was offered in the United States? It wasn’t until the 1920s that the health insurance business became mainstream and it has continued to evolve over the years. The fact is, until the last 60 years when the government and private business took an active role in providing social services, it was the CHURCH where people went in their time of need. The church fed the hungry. The church cared for widows and orphans. The church cared for the homeless and downtrodden. The church reached out to the alcoholic and those in bondage. THE CHURCH CARED FOR THE SICK!!!

While the church is still involved in these social issues today, it now plays a very minor role. Instead of investing in the lives and eternal souls of men and providing a shining light of Christ’s love to the world, the church now invests in property and buildings and entertaining people for an hour a week. Missing from the church today is much of the love and compassion for others and the bold preaching of the Gospel. That has been replaced with the anonymity found in the mega churches of today and watered down, feel-good, motivational messages designed not to offend anyone.

I love you and care about you so much. I can assure you that Jesus would NOT have been part of the healthcare debate. He would pray for President Obama’s salvation as I encourage everyone in the Liveprayer family to do each day. He would pray for the sick. But Jesus would not be entering into political debates between the government and private businesses over medical insurance.

While Jesus did minister to the practical needs of people and encouraged His followers to do the same, it was their eternal souls He cared most about. The fact is, we will ALL die one day. To have access to the best medical treatment possible during this brief journey is wonderful, but it is our soul that will live on for eternity while our physical body returns to the dust it came from.

Would it be nice if everyone had health insurance? Certainly. However, all you have to do is look at other countries who have socialized the healthcare industry and it becomes apparent that while it sounds good in theory, to cover everyone, it is simply not practical. To cover the small percentage of people who currently don’t have health insurance would mean the vast majority who do have coverage would not enjoy all of the benefits they currently have.

It opens up the door to the government deciding who gets treatment, who doesn’t, and ultimately who lives and who dies. While there may need to be some overhaul of the current system, having the government involved in the healthcare industry is clearly NOT the answer. Look at the mess Medicare and Medicaid are in today.

As followers of Christ we need to care about people. We need to pray for the sick and do all we can to help people in their time of need. However, to invoke the name of Jesus and try to make the case the Lord would support the government take-over of the healthcare industry is not only ridiculous, it is blasphemous.

While Jesus would not enter into the healthcare debate, I can assure you without any hesitation he would be lambasting this current President for his support of killing babies, helping to further the radical homosexual agenda, the perversion of God’s Holy Institution of Marriage, and siding with the enemies of Israel.

Ready for one of my best lines ever? You can quote this. From Bill Keller: “This is a nation being led by the President in all-out rebellion to God and His Word. Instead of trying to force Jesus to follow him, President Obama should start following Jesus!”

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller
