A Troubler in the Last Days

Leave a comment

(1 Kings 18:17-18)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, For some reason I have a hard time understanding this. Example: John Smith was saved on Friday at 2 PM. If that person does nothing else with their life, how can they say they are saved?

ANSWER: Only God knows a person’s heart, however, if a person is truly saved there will be evidence of it in how they live their life. Sadly, many are not properly discipled and don’t know how to make the correct changes. But in the ned, if a person is tryly saved, they will have a desire to please the Lord they have committed their life to, and through going to church, reading the Bible, fellowshipping with other Believers, begin to transform their old life into their new life.

“When he saw Elijah, he said to him, “Is that you, you troubler of Israel?” “I have not made trouble for Israel,” Elijah replied. “But you and your father’s family have. You have abandoned the LORD’s commands and have followed the Baals.” (1 Kings 18:17-18 NIV)

A “troubler” in these last days. A few months ago, a man who had been watching the Liveprayer TV program emailed me a very hateful letter, outraged I would dare bring my “narrow-minded Biblical view of life” on his television and told me to keep my “Jesus garbage” over on the Christian station. Without knowing it, he then paid me one of the greatest compliments I have ever received in over 18 years of ministry, when he called me nothing but a “troublemaker.”

It immediately reminded me of King Ahab when he approached Elijah, calling him the “troubler of Israel.” Ahab was upset because Elijah was not part of the established religious community of his day. He refused to fall into line and become part of the priesthood that was more interested in having people serve them, than in serving the people. Elijah separated himself from the religious leaders of his day who were more interested in pleasing men than in pleasing God. He wanted no part of the religious establishment whose goals were building their treasury rather than building the Kingdom of God. (Excuse me, but doesn’t that sound like many of the religious leaders of our day?)

No, Elijah had been called forth by God to sound the trumpet of warning and call the people of his day to repentance and a holy lifestyle. Elijah heard from God and declared His Truth to the people of his day regardless how unpopular that truth was. Elijah had little interest in the things of this temporal world, focusing instead on being faithful to his calling to challenge the people to follow God and honor Him with their lives. He had no time for political correctness or playing games. Elijah had been called forth by God for that moment in human history and obediently fulfilled his calling.

This exchange with King Ahab preceded what to me is one of the most powerful passages in all of God’s Word, Elijah versus the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel. Elijah not only had the guts to call out the false prophets of his day and challenge them head on, but he had the bedrock faith that God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, would answer by fire. I have told you many times over the years that the only way God loses is if we don’t put Him in the game. When we walk by faith and put God in the game, He is UNDEFEATED!!!

MY FRIEND, DAY AFTER DAY I CALL OUT THE MODERN-DAY PROPHETS OF BAAL AND WATCH THEM DEFEATED AS OUR GOD ANSWERS BY FIRE!!!

Liveprayer has been a 103-month walk of faith. I have literally given my life to the work of God, surrendering my time, talent, and treasure to obediently follow Him. It has been the financial sacrifices of thousands and the prayers of millions over these last 9 years that has sustained me and this work to boldly and without compromise declare to millions worldwide each day the Truth of God’s Word and the hope we have in Jesus Christ.

This journey has not been easy. We have had to fight for every inch of territory, as God has led me to use the very same vehicles satan uses to broadcast his lies to the masses 24/7, the Internet and television. Not just that, but use them in a way nobody else has ever done, as we have effectively married these two great broadcasting vehicles to not only reach millions of people worldwide each day with Biblical Truth and the love of Jesus, but provide each person we reach with a personal experience and the ability to interact with us one on one, so that we can minister to their individual needs.

Nearly 9 years ago people said I was crazy to minister to people over the Internet. Five years ago people said I was crazy to do a “live” TV program on secular television to reach unbelievers. IN CASE YOU DIDN’T KNOW IT YET, I AM CRAZY! CRAZY ENOUGH TO TRUST GOD AND BELIEVE HIS WORD! I AM CRAZY ENOUGH TO BELIEVE GOD WHEN HE SAYS THAT ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH HIM! I AM CRAZY ENOUGH TO WAKE UP EACH MORNING, WALK IN FAITH AND TRUST HIM TO PROVIDE!!!

I love you and care about you so much. Like Elijah, God has set me apart and called me forth into this lost and dying world to declare His Truth and the hope we have in His Son Jesus Christ. I have done my best for nearly 17 years now to be faithful to that calling on my life. For those who have been part of the Liveprayer family over these past 169 months, you have seen and heard my heart each day. I have always been open, honest, transparent, and up front with you about our work here, and you know by now that I have no earthly goals, only heavenly ones.

The Bible says “where there is no vision the people perish.” My job is to be faithful. I will continue to do my job as I have for nearly 18 years now. I have given all of my talents and energy to create the best vehicles to bring people to faith in Jesus Christ. No matter what happens, this is what I will be doing for the rest of my life until the Lord calls me home. God has shown me the power and impact Liveprayer has had in tens of millions of lives worldwide these past 14+ years.

God has also shown me the incredible power and impact Liveprayer can have in the coming months and years in hundreds of millions of lives worldwide should our Lord tarry, by making this bold and aggressive move to use the Internet and broadcasting to reach the hurting and lost masses who don’t go to church and will never turn on a Christian program. I need your prayers and support so that I can continue to be a “troublemaker” for Jesus!!!

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

If You Smoke, Drink Alcohol, Do Drugs, Abuse Food, You are Wasting Your Life Away

Leave a comment

(John 10:10)

***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.

If you smoke, drink alcohol, do drugs, abuse food, engage in sex outside of marriage, gamble, are greedy, or in any other kind of bondage, you ARE wasting your life away. The problem is that the bondages in our life sap the very life out of us each day!!!

The time spent indulging in our bondage, and then recovering from our episodes, is precious time that we could be doing something productive. The bondages we get involved in dominate our thoughts. They cause health problems. Once you are involved in any kind of bondage, you are wasting away your precious life.

Today’s Devotional is designed for only one purpose, to make you stop, perhaps for the first time in a LONG time, be honest with yourself, and ask yourself what has become a bondage that is destroying your very life. Of course, all bondage is from satan. His purpose is very clearly defined in our verse today. It is to KILL, STEAL, and DESTROY.

He wants to kill you to keep you from serving God. He wants to steal your joy and peace to keep you down, so that you aren’t of any use to God. He wants to destroy you, so that those around you have no hope. Because of the victory Jesus won on the cross 2,000 years ago, YOU ALSO CAN LIVE IN VICTORY.

I love you and care about you so much. I can’t force you to stop whatever has you in bondage today, but I can pray for you. Our life is so short even under the best circumstances, that we need to treat each day as the gift from God it is. When we waste it by allowing a bondage in our life to take over, we lose out on so much. Jesus promised that we would have a life of abundance.

But God gave us free will to make our own choices. I will be praying today that for those of you NOT in some form of bondage in your life today, that you stay strong and avoid allowing yourself to get caught in that trap. For those who are fighting some bondage today, let me tell you that God is a God of deliverance. I will be praying today that you open your heart and hear HIM speaking to you today.

IT IS NO ACCIDENT THAT YOU ARE READING THIS TODAY!!!

You are in a battle. To win a battle, you must have a battle plan. Pray, sit down and let God give you a plan that you can faithfully work each day. Then you need someone that you can be accountable to on a daily basis. You can’t win this fight alone. You need someone to stand with you and hold you accountable.

Lastly, you need the strength that you can only get from God. That comes from your daily relationship through prayer and the Word, from being in church, and in finding ways to serve the Lord. All of this working together will help you overcome this battle and see victory. I will stand with you and be praying for you. Our God is able!!!

Please know God loves you so much. Take a moment and be honest with yourself. If you have allowed some form of bondage to take over your life, TODAY can be a day of deliverance for you. Don’t waste another moment of your precious life. God has blessings for you that you cannot even begin to comprehend. Never forget, the devil has only one goal, to kill, steal, and destroy. Jesus came to give you life, and life more abundantly. Take your life back today, and LIVE!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

The “Peaceful Religion” Strikes Again

Leave a comment

(1 Chronicles 9:1, 5:25)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, what would be some examples showing fruits the Spirit?

ANSWER: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. (Galatians 5:22,23)

The “peaceful religion” strikes again!!! In case you have tuned out recently, since as I told you over a decade ago you could find examples EVERY DAY somewhere in the world of Islam being the false religion of satan it has been since its’ inception 1400 years ago, listen to what these wonderful, loving people did in the Kenyan mall massacre last weekend!

They would line people up and ask them the name of the wife of their faux “prophet” Mohammed. If people didn’t know they shot them in the head. They also weeded out the Christians and tortured them. They gouged out eyes, cut off limbs, and even worse. I won’t go into all they did, if you are really interested you can find out through scores of online news sites. Suffice it to say they simply were doing what this false “religion of peace” has done for the past 1400 years!

The successor to Bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri recently sent a communication to the head of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula to strike at the US. Since 9/11, law enforcement has thwarted over 400 terror plots by Muslims here on US soil. Sadly, a few acts of terror like the shooting at Ft. Hood and the bombing at the Boston Marathon weren’t stopped. If you need to understand what the goal of Islam is, let me refresh your memory.

Anyone who has bought into the media narrative that Islam is a religion of peace, has bought into a lie since 1400 years of Islamic history has proved it to be from day one about hatred, violence, terror, death, and domination! Professional liars like the people at CAIR and other Muslim watch-dog organizations promote this fantasy that Islam is a relgion of “peace,” in order to execute their con game on the American people that they just want to be part of this nation.

Back in October of 2010, Faisal Shahzad, AKA the “Times Square Bomber,” was sentenced to life in prison for his failed attempt to detonate a car bomb in Times Square on a beautiful summer night that could have easily taken a thousand or more innocent lives. A few in the Muslim community quickly dismissed the words of Shahzad as those of an “extremist,” but at his sentencing, Shahzad made quite a few statements.

More than anything, I want to remind you who Shahzad was. He was the “nice Muslim” who lives next door to you. He was the “quiet Muslim” you went to school with. He was the “peaceful Muslim” you work with. He was the “patriotic Muslim” who became a U.S. citizen last year. In reality, Shahzad WAS, IS, and ALWAYS WILL BE a Muslim first who blended in to our society where he lived, went to school, and worked, but like ALL..I REPEAT…ALL Muslins, he never let on for a second what his TRUE THOUGHTS AND DESIRES were.

*His words were sobering because it was one of the few times you will ever hear a Muslim tell the truth about their real goals and intentions in this country!!! READ THEM! THIS IS WHAT ISLAM IS ABOUT!!!

Fortunately, Shahzad used the opportunity afforded him to speak at his sentencing to share his TRUE THOUGHTS, that are the TRUE THOUGHTS OF ALL MUSLIMS! As wonderful a job as our national security efforts have been to thwart an endless string of new attacks on this nation by Muslims like the one Shahzad planned, sadly, it is not a matter of if, only when, we will experience our next 9/11. When we do, you will remember these words!!!

What I did, was pull the most important statements Shahzad made in court at his sentencing. They are in no specific order, since any one of these statements, and certainly the totality of all of them, give us a clear a distinct picture about how Muslims in this nation really feel and what their true intentions really are. Read them slowly, carefully, and numerous times to get the full impact of how Muslims in this nation REALLY think!!!

“Brace yourselves, because the war with Muslims has just begun.” He later continued: “The defeat of the U.S. is imminent and will happen in the near future. We are only Muslims … but if you call us terrorists, we are proud terrorists and we will keep on terrorizing you. We are only Muslims trying to defend our religion, people, homes and land.”

“If I’m given 1,000 lives I will sacrifice them all for the life of Allah. How can I be judged by a court that does not understand the suffering of my people?”

“The Koran gives us the right to defend, and that’s what I’m doing. I am happy with the deal God has given me.”

The judge cut him off at one point to ask if he had sworn allegiance to the United States when he became a citizen last year. “I did swear but I did not mean it,” said Shahzad.

“We do not accept your democracy or your freedom because we already have Sharia law and freedom.”

“We Muslims don’t abide by human-made laws because they are always corrupt,” he said, denouncing the presence of U.S. and NATO forces in Iraq and Afghanistan and mentioning al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden who he said “will be known as no less than Saladin of the 21st-century crusade” – a reference to the Muslim hero of the Crusades.

“Furthermore, brace yourselves because the war with Muslims has just begun,” he said. “Consider me the first droplet of the flood that will follow.”

I love you and care about you so much. It was actually refreshing to hear a Muslim actually tell the truth for once. This is exactly how they think and feel. If you want to keep listening to and believing the lies of true tools of satan like those at CAIR, anyone else speaking for the Muslim community, or the media’s sanitized view of Islam be my guest.

I don’t believe Shahzad because I want to, I believe Shahzad because he simply confirmed in all of his statements what this Muslims really believe but won’t tell you about their true goals and intentions for this country! Please understand that not only was everything Shahzad said was true, but just like they are in the process of doing in many European countries, the dominance of the United States and turning our land into an Islam nation is their clear, concise, and stated goal!

Sadly, as I wrote a decade ago, because of our gross sins and rebellion to God, Islam could easily one day be the United States Babylon unless we wake up, recognize this enemy for who they really are, and turn back to God and His Truth!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

“Killing Jesus” by “Pope” O’Reilly

Leave a comment

(Luke 17:26-32)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, some people think God chose who he was going to be saved even before they were born. I tend to think He just knew who was going to follow him and who wasn’t. What is your opinion?

ANSWER: It is the age old debate about “election.” God in His omniscience knew before the foundations of the earth was formed who would accept Him and who would reject Him. Having said that, despite His knowledge, man has the free will to accept or reject Christ and God DOES NOT interfere with that free will choice, meaning each person is responsible for what they do with Jesus. Otherwise, there would be no need for preaching the Gospel, there would be no point in evangelizing, and all of the commandments regarding telling others (Romans 10) would be meaningless.

“Killing Jesus” by “Pope” O’Reilly is the theological trainwreck as I predicted when he announced this book was coming out, and not worth a dime of your hard earned money! Sadly, this book will soar to the top of the NY Times Best Seller list, just like the blasphemous garbage written by Muslim Reza Aslam titled, “Zealot,” the life and times of Jesus of Nazareth that I told you about a month ago. (Here is the link to that Devotional: http://www.liveprayer.com/ddarchive3.cfm?id=5281)

SADLY, LESS THAN 10% OF THOSE WHO CLAIM TO BE CHRISTIANS HAVE EVER READ THE BIBLE COVER TO COVER. BEFORE YOU WASTE ANOTHER DIME ON A BOOK ABOUT JESUS OR CHRISTIANITY, HOW ABOUT READING THE BOOK YOU ALREADY OWN THAT IS PROBABLY SITTING BY YOUR BED WITH DUST ON IT!!!

Having been on O’Reilly’s program numerous times dealing with issues in the news from a Biblical worldview, and having warned people in the Daily Devotional over and over during the years about his dangerous theology which is a hybrid of liberal Catholicism and New Age mysticism, I knew this book would be nothing but the latest “Jesus book” that makes the author millions of dollars while leading the lost and ignorant astray with Biblically inaccurate theology.

For the record, I have not been on the arrogant and pompous O’Reilly’s program the past 4 years because his producers told me that he did not appreciate me correcting his flawed theology. In the world of tabloid journalist “Pope” O’Reilly, he is always right and everyone else is a “pinhead.”

He also did not appreciate the fact a few months ago I publicly challenged him for calling Bible believing Christians “Bible thumpers,” a pejorative term used by those who have disdain for people who they feel are foolish enough to actually believe what the Bible teaches. BillO loves to chastise his detractors for not coming on his program, but he is no different, just another gutless self-promoter who runs and hides from those who can embarrass him.

O’Reilly is actually on the record stating that the Bible is not a literal book, only a book of allegories and good moral stories. Sadly, due to the fact the majority of the past two generations have never even been to church, people like Muslim Aslam and the theologically challenged O’Reilly, make millions selling their “Jesus” books to people who have little to no Biblical knowledge, filling their minds with gross errors! O’Reilly will make his tour of secular programs sharing his theological errors with those audiences who are virtually all Biblically illiterate and will never know what he wrote is not Biblical Truth!

It was even more disheartening to see O’Reilly’s new bought and paid for “Christian go-to guy,” Dr. Robert Jeffress, who is the pastor of First Baptist Dallas. FBD became a great church under the leadership of Dr. W.A. Chriswell who was the senior pastor for decades. Dr. Jeffress if you remember, took a stand during the spring of last year by correctly telling the media Mitt Romney was part of a cult. Sadly, due to pressure from many fronts, he later backed down and told people that it was OK to vote for a 5th generation high priest of a satan worshipping cult leading souls to hell with a false gospel.

Dr. Jeffress is now O’Reilly’s guest when Christian issues arise, and instead of telling people the truth he goes along with whatever O’Reilly says. Such was the case the other night because O’Reilly has been exposed from a few like myself who are not intimidated by him and will warn people he is leading astray with his false theology. Dr. Jeffress compromised his integrity by telling O’Reilly’s audience what a wonderful book “Killing Jesus” is, twisting himself into a pretzel while trying to help O’Reilly sell his book.

He is no different than “jellyfish” Osteen, “my own purpose driven empire” Warren, or modern day sell-outs to satanic cult member Glenn Beck like David Barton, John Hagee, James Robison, Ralph Reed, and Beck’s other bought and paid for sock puppets! I guess for Dr. Jeffress, being on O’Reilly’s program is more important than telling people the truth. The reason this is so critical is because the eternal souls of men are at stake, and if they can’t get the truth from supposed men of God like Dr. Jeffress, where will they? Certainly not from people who are theologically ignorant like “Pope” O’Reilly!

O’Reilly, in this Sunday’s “60 Minutes,” claims Jesus was afraid to die. Jesus WAS NOT afraid to die. In His humanity he understood what his purpose in life was, and that was to die for the sins of all mankind. Like ALL humans in their weak moments, the Lord asked God to take that burden from Him, yet still went obediently to the cross to give His life which was His ultimate mission.

The most laughable claim in O’Reilly’s theological disaster was that Jesus was killed because of taxes. On his FOX News program in March O’Reilly stated, “I’m researching Killing Jesus. Do you know why Jesus was killed by the Romans? You don’t know and you shouldn’t know because it was about taxes, taxes!”

What??? Jesus was not killed because of taxes or for inciting some sort of tax revolt. Quite the opposite. He clearly taught the people to render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s. It was the Jewish religious leaders who plotted to kill Jesus since he was interfering with their “business,” much like most of the church world today is little more than a business. They held an inquisition of our Lord and got Him to admit He was God, which according to Jewish Law was a blasphemous statement. They than used their Roman occupiers as the instrument to execute Jesus.

More critical however is the fact the Bible clearly teaches that Jesus was born ultimately to die on the cross as the one-time perfect sacrifice for the sins of all mankind. O’Reilly in his arrogance and theological ignorance doesn’t understand that theologically the killing of Jesus was ultimately about one thing, God’s one and only plan to redeem fallen man in order that His creation could come back into an eternal relationship with their Creator as he created them!”

*If you have never accepted Jesus as your Savior, accepting His sacrifce on the cross as the payment of your sins, please go to the following link: http://www.liveprayer.com/plan.cfm

I love and care about you so much. I see ZERO difference between the blasphemous book by Muslim Aslam and the new book by the theologically challenged O’Reilly on a network many Christians view on a daily basis. I have told you for over a decade that FOX News is no more Christian than MSNBC at the end of the day. They are about one thing, just like O’Reilly is about one thing, just like sadly most of the Christian churches and ministries today are about one thing..MONEY!!!

It is so sad to watch good people send hard earned money to tools of satan like Beck, pay for theological trash like O’Reilly’s new book, give money to major ministries so they can buy a new private jet, or help fund a local churches newest building project. THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IS SOULS, SINCE ONLY SOULS WILL EXIST FOR ALL ETENRITY!!

Instead of lining the pockets of O’Reilly for his theological nonsense, if 1600 people would take that $20 and send it to Liveprayer to help bring God’s Truth to the marketplace and save souls, our September operations will be taken care of. We fight daily for the Truth here at Liveprayer thanks to the prayers and sacrifce of friends like you!

Each day I not only battle the obvious minions of satan who spew their lies to the masses 24/7, but also wolves in sheep’s clothing like O’Reilly who with a minimal amount of real understanding would know the killing of Jesus was so the sins of mankind would be forgiven and each person by faith could be reconciled with his Creator for all eternity!!! Of course for “Pope” O’Reilly, it is not about souls, but MONEY!!!

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

The Judgment of God is Coming Upon This Nation Sooner than Anyone Can Believe

Leave a comment

(Deuteronomy 8:19, 20)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, in 1 Corinthians 15, 3-4 Paul tells us the Good News in specific terms. I never hear a Pastor use these specific terms exactly as Paul says in this book. Isn’t The Gospel … “Jesus died for our sins, was buried and rose again three days later”, the only way according to Paul to be saved? I hear people say a lot of other things like ask Jesus into your heart and he died for your sins but never the Gospel? According to Paul those words are the only way to be saved and in fact are “The Gospel” is that correct?

ANSWER: The “Gospel” message is the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. It is also the message that we are ALL sinners, in need of a Savior, and that Jesus was the one-time perfect sacrifce from God for the sins of all mankind. Romans Chapter 10 is a great resource for leading a person to faith in Jesus. It is important to take all of God’s Word regarding any theological issue. Salvation is simple enough for an average 3rd grade mentality, since it simply requires the understanding of our sinfulness and that faith in Jesus is the only answer for our sins and the only way to regain our eternal relationship with God our Creator It is critical to understand, again why the ENTIRE context of the Bible is to be considered, that words alone (a sinners prayer) don’t save you, but are simply a verbal guide to what you are doing in your heart by faith. Ephesians 2:8,9 is the key verses: “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith -and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-not by works, so that no one can boast.”

-A sad and confused male high school student who has been told “he” is really a “she,” is the homecoming queen!

-Christians in many countries, especially today in Egypt and Syria, are being persecuted and slaughtered for their faith in Christ!

-At least 3 people who perpetrated the massacre in a Kenyan shopping mall were from the US!

-A tabloid “journalist” on FOX News, Bill O’Reilly, has written a book that is a theological joke (full Daily Devotional coming tomorrow) which will help to lead a generation of unchurched, Biblically illiterate people to eternal damnation!

-The leader of the world’s 1.2 million Catholics, Pope Francis, has said in the past 30 days that those who deny the very existence of God will be in Heaven, that we should no longer talk about the sins of homosexuality and abortion destroying lives daily, and that we should simply ignore immigration laws and embrace those who broke the law to come to the US illegally!

What does all of this mean to you? Only that the ultimate judgment of God is coming upon this nation sooner than anyone can believe. It also means that everyone reading these words today need to be in prayer for this nation to turn back to the Lord and His Truth before that ultimate judgment is unleashed. IT IS OUR ONLY HOPE AND OUR ONLY ANSWER!!!

God’s judgment is being poured out on this nation. For you World War 2 history buffs, you may remember this classic meeting between German dictator Adolph Hitler and England’s Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain. “Chamberlain took from his pocket a paper headed “Anglo-German Agreement,” which contained three paragraphs, including a statement that the two nations considered the Munich Agreement “symbolic of the desire of our two people never to go to war again.” According to Chamberlain, Hitler interjected “Ja! Ja!” (“Yes! Yes!”) as the Prime Minister read it. The two men signed the paper then and there. When, later that day, German Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop remonstrated with Hitler for signing it, the Fuhrer replied, “Oh, don’t take it so seriously. That piece of paper is of no further significance whatever.” Chamberlain, on the other hand, when he returned to his hotel for lunch, patted his breast pocket and said, “I’ve got it!”

Perhaps no nation that has ever existed in the history of the world other than Israel, has known the incredible blessings of God like the United States. In just 237 years, this nation has become the most powerful and prosperous nation in the history of the world. It is the hand of God that allows nations to rise, and to fall. God allowed this nation to rise up from nothing. He poured out His richest blessings on our country. Sadly, we have squandered those blessings, misappropriated them, and now must face God’s judgment.

I DO NOT say this lightly, and fully realize the magnitude of what I am sharing with you today. This nation began to decline in the mid 60’s. That decline continued throughout the 70’s. It intensified in the “me years” of the 80’s. The decline began to occur at warp speed during the 90’s, when even the President became a symbol of our decline. As we are now 10 years into the new millennium, we are in free-fall and I am sorry to say, things are never going to get better, only worse.

There are 7 key factors that has brought our nation to this time of God’s judgment. First, is the Federal Government legalizing the killing of innocent babies. In the 40 years since abortion was legalized, there have been over 58 million babies killed, app. 1.3 million each year, around 4,000 every single day.

Second, is the bold, unrepentant, unashamed, gross sexual perversion that exists in our nation today. From those who choose homosexuality, to the epidemic of sexual activity outside of marriage starting as young as 12, to the ever increasing numbers of men and women who commit adultery, to the unrestricted pornography industry, to those who proudly engage in every type of sexual perversion that man has ever dreamed of.

The third factor is the millions who have rejected the God of the Bible to follow the false gods of the world. The fastest growing religions in our country are the cults like the Muslims, the Mormons, the Scientologists, and the various New Age movements. They have preyed on the 2 plus generations in our nation that have for the most part never been to church, and during those difficult times in their life are seeking answers. Sadly, they have believed the lie from satan instead of the Truth of God’s Word.

Fourth, is the abandonment of Israel. Genesis 12:3 is still in effect today! Even though the U.S. gives billions in aid each year to Israel, the current “roadmap” is helping to give away the land that God promised to the children of Israel to their enemies.

Fifth, is the destruction of the family. A Godly family consisting of a man and a woman that both love the Lord and have only been married to each other, with children that love and honor God, is the exception today, rather than the norm that it once was. Marriage is no longer God’s holy institution, but little more than a legal date. Divorce damages the lives of both spouses and the children involved. A large percentage of children now grow up in unstable homes where God is never mentioned, and go on to have unhealthy relationships and children of their own, that also grow up in unstable homes void of God.

The sixth factor is the media. Satan has full control over 99% of the media (the 1% being the Christian media), and there are no longer ANY constraints on what can be produced. Between television, films, music, the Internet, video games, and publications, you can access an unlimited amount of whatever type of filth, garbage, perversion, and disgusting deviant behavior that you want 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, right from the comfort of your home.

The seventh and final factor is the apostate church. The church today is more interested in programs than people, in building great structures instead of great men and women of God, in entertaining people rather than encouraging them. The church has compromised the absolute truth of God’s word in order to be politically correct, and is more concerned with people’s money than their souls.

The spiritual leaders of this nation are NOT supposed to be a politician, NOT supposed to be Hollywood stars or musicians, NOT supposed to be Oprah and other TV stars, and NOT supposed to be sports heroes, They are supposed to be the men and women of God that He has raised up and called to be a BOLD, LOUD, CLEAR voice for His TRUTH, not just from the pulpit of a local church, or in a great convention of Christians, BUT IN THE WORLD THAT WE LIVE IN!!!

I love you and care about you so much. My heart is broken over having to share such a word like this. If we think that any of these 7 factors are going to change, we are simply being naive. Things are NOT ever going to go back to the way they used to be. To not expect God’s judgment on such blatant and gross rebellion is also very naive.

God will not be mocked. You cannot live in rebellion to God and not pay the price in your personal life, and we cannot live in rebellion to God and not pay the price as a nation. But here is the good news. GOD ALWAYS HAS A REMNANT! GOD ALWAYS HAS A PEOPLE! Despite whatever judgment He pours out on our nation, there will always be a group of people that will never bow their knee to Baal!

I will be praying for you today. I pray that you will be part of God’s remnant in these last days. I pray that you will embrace the opportunity that we will have as the people of God to share the hope and love of Christ with the hurting and the lost. We are going to have incredible opportunities to see great numbers of souls won for the Kingdom. I want to encourage you today.

God has raised up Liveprayer for this moment in human history. God gave me the vision to sound the trump of warning and to lead this nation back to God and His Truth! We are adding people daily to the Liveprayer family, and now it is your opportunity to take a real stand for Christ. God is calling you today! He wants to use you today to help bring revival to this nation just like Nineveh did when they repented and turned to Almighty God!

Over 120,000 souls were saved in Nineveh because they turned to God! I believe that we can see millions repent and turn to God in the wake of this revival here in the US. You can keep living your life, taking care of yourself, or you can sacrifice your life and allow God to use you for His glory. When you come to the end of your life, it is not what you did for yourself that will matter, but what you did for God. Read that again. When you come to the end of your life, it is not what you did for yourself that will matter, but what you did for God.

Let me leave you with the incredible words from Hebrews 11:13-16, and pray that one day men will say this about you and I. “All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth. People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. Instead, they were longing for a better country–a heavenly one. THEREFORE GOD IS NOT ASHAMED TO BE CALLED THEIR GOD, FOR HE HAS PREPARED A CITY FOR THEM.”

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

Dominionism

Leave a comment

(Matthew 10;16-23)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, I have been seeing people on my Facebook page referring to God as “Abba.” Where did this come from? I don’t remember seeing this anywhere in the Bible. To me, Abba is a singing group.

ANSWER: Galatians 4:6. As a child of God, we have the right to call Him “Abba,” or Father!

Dominionism is the newest charge from the secular media against “stupid” people who actually believe the Bible and have put their faith in Jesus Christ. My definition of such a person is a CHRISTIAN, but now even that definition is being disputed, since you have people calling themselves Christians who support the sins of homosexuality and abortion, along with many radical social agendas that are embraced by the group I have warned you about called the “religious left”

The “religious left” is made up of people who identify themselves as Christians and hold strong religious beliefs as well as sharing left-wing ideals. Obviously, this group has risen up in opposition to those who have been tagged the “religious right” or the “Christian right.” The “Christian right” is that group of Bible-believing Christians who are politically active and seek to elect to office those candidates who hold to Biblical values on the key spiritual issues of our day that are also political issues.

These would be issues like abortion and life related matters, gay marriage, family issues, the proliferation of the pornography industry, and the drive to remove God from the public square. Those in the “religious left” actually take an anti-Biblical position on these issues and are also heavily involved in the ecumenical movement, environmental issues, opposing war for any reason, world hunger, and social issues like healthcare, welfare, and education.

In order to marginalize Bible-believing Christians, the secular media is now calling them “dominionists.”

Dominionism, in the context of politics and religion, is the tendency among some politically active conservative Christians to seek influence or control over secular civil government through political action. It is also known as subjectionism. The goal is either a nation governed by Christians, or a nation governed by a conservative Christian understanding of Biblical truth. The charge is that the ultimate goal is to create a Christian theocracy.

Obvsiouly that is ludicrous. However, you have a steady diet of secular TV hosts who have now picked up on this mantra to demonize Bible-believing Christians, especially those who are running for public office. The goal is to paint these followers of Christ as radical, racists, and stupid.

After all, if you actually believe God over what man says regarding the fact the earth was created 6,000 years ago, and not millions or billions due to flawed dating methods (The earth, and all of creation was spoken into existence in a MATURE STATE! Unless you know that mature date, and that is impossible, ALL dating methods are fatally flawed.), or man was CREATED and didn’t evolve from a drop of pond scum, you my friend are a fool!

Additionally, only ignorant people have an issue with those who choose to engage in homosexual acts and oppose same-sex marriage. You have to hate women to be against giving the woman the choice to kill her baby. Nobody who accepts the Bible as Absolute Truth and our final authority in all matters can be operating with a sound mind according to the secular media. We are also racists and against anyone who is not white.

I am sorry but their ignorance is laughable. A true follower of Jesus Christ simply wants to have the freedom to worship, serve, and glorify our Lord without interference. We are commanded to be involved in every aspect of daily life, including politics. It is our desire to have men and women in public office who hold the same values and faith as we do. We also understand that a politician is there to govern, not lead the people spirituality, and that this nation was founded on religious freedom. No true follower of Christ is looking to turn the nation into a Christian theocracy! That is what Beck and the Mormons ultimately want!

A true follower of Jesus Christ holds all life as precious from the womb on. Marriage is a Holy Institution created by God between a man and a woman, and sex is god’s gift to a man and woman in the bonds of marriage alone. We also believe all men are created equal. When we die, we will spend eternity with people of every color and ethnic origin. They are our brothers and sisters no matter what the color of their skin is or the country they live in, since the body of Christ is made up of every man, woman and child who has given their heart and life by faith to Jesus Christ.

I love you and care about you so much. Now can you understand why it is so critical to have a voice in the marketplace, on the secular media to stand against these lies being spewed 24/7 without any opposition? The goal is to silence us and dismiss us as ignorant fools. Sadly, they have done a masterful job because there is NOBODY in the secular media telling our side of the story! The major media ministries decided long ago to stay in the comfort of the Christian media where they can rake in millions and never have to take on these media minions of satan.

Well, I have been in their mediums now for a decade. That is why I have come to you recently and asked for just one person to stand with me. Over the past 5 months, Liveprayer has secured a God-given opportunity to re-launch the Liveprayer TV program in over 40 cities around the nation! Check it out at: http://www.liveprayer.com/liveprayertv.cfm

This will also lock us into several existing national networks that will enable the program to go nationwide Monday thru Friday, live for an hour a day, by January of 2014. Wouldn’t you like to turn on the TV some evening and see a true man of God taking a stand for Biblical Truth, for YOUR beliefs? Sadly, there is NOBODY on nationwide, secular TV each day doing that. LIVEPRAYER HAS AND IS DOING!!!

I told you years ago this day was coming. Our voice is being silenced and marginalized daily. We are now seen as the evil ones in society. Our ability to share our faith is being greatly curtailed. We will see real persecution aginst Christian who stand by God’s Word happening more and more in the coming weeks and months. If we don’t stand now, we won’t be able to. I know that with God all things are possible. Liveprayer has taken its’ stand on the front lines for decades, and today I am asking YOU to stand with me!!!

***SEPTEMBER FINANCIAL UPDATE: Thank you for those who prayed and were able to help with a gift yesterday! With the August shortfall finally covered last weekend and now the first $7,000 of September in, I am trying to insure the final $33,000 for our basic October operations budget is covered over these final 6 days of the month. Please do me a favor and pray about what you can do to help me before the end of the month.

Also, $12,000 of our September operations is now a couple weeks past due and it would take a load of pressure off of me if 2 or 3 friends could help with a special one-time gift to cover all or a portion of that past due amount by this weekend. Thank you so much and know I am praying for you and your family each day. We press forward in ushering in a national revival and leading this nation back to God and HIS Truth!!

Are You Ready to Make Your Life Count for Christ in these Final Days

Leave a comment

(John 14:6)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, I am trying to teach my teenage son about morals. He asked me: Where in the bible does it say that it is a sin to have sex before marriage? Please help because I don’t know.

ANSWER: It is called FORNICATION. Sex outside of your marriage is a sin called adultery. Sex when you are single, not married, is called fornication. Both are sexual sins as God clearly states in the Bible.

WHAT DID I TELL YOU???

“Turkey’s Islamist government is constructing a massive $100 million, 15-acre mosque in Lanham, Md., that is expected to “become the largest and most striking example of Islamic architecture in the Western hemisphere” by October 2014.” “As the Clarion Project explains, mosques have been springing up all over the U.S. in recent years. As many as 80 percent of the mosques in America have been built in the last 12 years – since the 2001 terror attacks.”

“”These radical mosques often promote the installation of Sharia law, an extreme ideology that considers ‘non-believers’ to be infidels. According to Wahhabis, jihad or support of jihad is a Muslim duty. They believe that suicide bombers and martyrs are worthy of the highest praise and reward. And radicals are anticipating the day when an Islamic state will one day span the U.S.”

“Pastor Keller: Thank you for your message each day. More importantly, thank you for all that you are doing at Liveprayer, to bring God’s message of love and hope to the world each day. I have been reading your Daily Devotional messages since 2003. I read the Devotionals every morning, before I pray. The messages always help prepare me for my talk with God and time in prayer each day. Your daily messages have also been instrumental in helping me to maintain my Faith, to stay in prayer, lean on and refer to the Bible and God’s Word, and not give up, as I have gone through some extremely difficult times over the last 10-years. I have given to Liveprayer over the years, in both good times and bad, when possible. I pray today that God will multiply my humble offerings, as only He can, so that you can continue your work at Liveprayer, now and in the coming years. Please know that your tireless efforts and work at Liveprayer for the Lord is greatly appreciated, more than you know. In the name of Jesus, I am praying for Liveprayer and praying for your continued health, strength, and well being. Be blessed, Pastor Keller and thank you for all that you do!”

“Bill, I just want to thank you! I’ve known who God and Jesus are. But I was just asked last night when was I born again. Truth is I didn’t have an answer. I wanted to have an answer and came across your video and I accepted Him into my life. Now I can say when was I born without hesitating. Thanks!”

“Bill, Thank you for your thoughts and for caring. Every night when I kneel with my sons to pray you are lifted to God. You have been for so long that when these sons pray out loud, they speak to God of you by name. I know God will bless your ministry in the coming days. It is the only real hope I see.”

May 6th was the re-launch of the Liveprayer TV program. In just under 5 months we have been excited at the positive response of those who have joined the Liveprayer family. So far, over 350 people we know of have come to faith in Jesus! 95% of churches in this nation haven’t seen 100 souls saved in the past year!!! Every program is archived by date and the topic of that night’s program for On-Demand viewing. This was the final piece we need to help change the spiritual course of this nation and bring our land back to God and His Truth while bringing lost souls to faith in Jesus!

—>To view the program LIVE Monday-Friday from Midnight-2am EDT on your TV, computer, SmartPhone, or tablet, or for an archive of previous programs you can watch On Demand, please go to: http://www.liveprayer.com/liveprayertv.cfm

We are all in now and it is critical that we keep our basic monthly expenses current. As we head into the last few days of September, it is imperative that we cover the final $35,000 of our basic operational budget! $10,000 of that is overdue since the first of the month and I am praying for 1 or 2 friends to help me with a special one-time gift to insure that is taken care of by the end of today!

Liveprayer operates on a monthly budget of a bit over $1,300 a day, the same budget as a local church of 500 people who meet once a week has! For $1300 a day, we are able to reach more people in a day than most churches could reach in years!!!! PLEASE PRAY ABOUT A GIFT OF $1300 TO COVER ONE DAYS OPERATIONS!!!!!!

I have taken my stand for the past 20+ years. I have NOT compromised the Truth of God’s Word for money as so many do. Liveprayer IS God’s vehicle to lead this nation back to Him and His Truth and together we can see this happen over the coming months.

Friends like you have helped us impact 10’s of millions worldwide over 14+ yrs now, seeing over 700,000 souls we know of come to faith in Jesus. It will be friends like you who love the Lord and make the sacrifce to help us bring true revival to this nation, not a 2 week meeting in a local church, but a nationwide move of the Holy Spirit!!!

I need your help today. Over the past 14+ years, I have only come to you when it was serious. We have done all we need to keep our basic operations current and get the TV program re-launched. In the coming months, we will be available on DirecTV, DISH, and several hundred new cities. The key is YOUR prayers and YOUR support to keep this ministry current so we can fulfill our final work in bringing this nation back to God and HIS Truth and leading lost souls to faith in Jesus!!!

Please take a moment and pray about what God is asking you to do in these next days to help insure we end the month with all of our basic operations met as we head into June and the summer months without any shortfall. Thank you for your love, prayers, and sacrifce as together we change the spiritual course of the nation while leading lost souls to faith in Jesus!

Don’t think that someone else will do what God is calling YOU to do. It is YOUR blessings, your blessings and not those of someone else. All I ask is that you are obedient to give as the Lord is guiding you to give to support HIS work here.

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.

I love you and care about you so much. The time is short. Our time is now. Know that you and your family are in my prayers each day. Thank you for your love, prayers, and sacrifice to help me!

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