Kim Kardashian, A Living Symbol of the Spiritual Decay of this Nation!

Leave a comment

(Deuteronomy 8:19,20)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Lord, give me the discernment I need today to recognize the traps of satan. Help me to see with spritual eyes and hear with spiritual ears YOUR Truth alone. In the name of Jesus…AMEN!

Kim Kardashian, a living symbol of the spiritual decay of this nation! Young adults and children today know virtually NOTHING of the great men and women and stories found in the Bible, but can tell you every sordid detail of the sinful life of manufactured reality star Kim Kardashian. I could actually stop the Devotional right here, since this says it all in regard to where our nation is spiritually.

Kardashian and her family have no musical ability. They are not gifted actors or actresses from the world of movies. They became famous in 2006 Kim’s mother (widow of Robert Kardashian, a famous LA attorney best known for being friends with OJ Simpson and part of his dream team, who died in 2003 and left his family very well off financially) “leaked” a sex tape of her daughter Kim with the brother of singer Brandy that became an internet sensation.

The Kardashians have masterfully played the media and the general public over the past decade to build a business empire raking in tens of millions from their reality TV programs, personal appearances, clothes, fragrances, and anything else a person can hawk!

Several years ago, Kim was in the news for making a mockery out of God’s Holy Institution of Marriage by marrying an NBA basketball player on her TV program, and then ending the marriage after a whopping 81 days! Her divorce was not final before she became sexually involved with her current husband, rapper Kanye West.

Do you need any indication of how far this nation is from God and His Truth? Just look at the constant filth and garbage on TV that has millions watching each week! ” One program after another glorifying every kind of sexual perversion you can name, every kind of outright rebellion to God you could think of, that portrays the very worst of human beings. All of these programs have millions of viewers and continue to be pumped out in more extreme forms each year to satisfy the insatiable appetites of people for sheer and utter rebellion to God!!!

If you are in your 40’s and 50’s or older, you have watched our society sink into the spiritual abyss in your lifetime. Going from a nation where the majority embraced Biblical values and honored God, to a nation where the majority now reject Biblical values and mock God.

Sadly, if you are younger, you have grown up knowing nothing but the utter rebellion we see around us on a daily basis in every aspect of our life. You have grown up being lied to that homosexuality is something people are born with and is normal. You have grown up being lied to that we evolved from a drop of pond scum. Worst of all, you probably didn’t grow up in church, and if you did, chances are high it was a church that compromised the Truth of God’s Word and watered down what the Bible teaches.

I love you and care about you so much. It is the church that is to blame for the spiritual state of our nation, not Kim Kardashian, TV, Hollywood, the Internet, the music industry, the pro abortion or homosexual movements, or anyone else. All these people are doing is living in rebellion to God as ANYONE without Christ does! The church and the church alone is the sole reason for the spritual decay in our nation!

My friend, the time to rise up is now. The church has proven to be incapable of leading our nation spiritually. The church will still play a huge role, but the movement has to start OUTSIDE the four walls of the church. The remnant, those who have refused to bow their knee to baal and compromise God’s Truth must lead this movement, purge the churches who only want to play games, and work with those churches who are about God’s Kingdom and not their own!

It is the people of God who must lead this charge in order to save the soul of our nation. Unless we repent as a nation, turn back to God and His Truth as a nation, we are doomed. But be of good cheer, there is a remnant, God has a people, and there are enough sitting back in silence who know deep down inside that we can’t continue on the path we are on and survive much longer.

Now is the time, this is the moment in human history for those who know the Lord to take our stand as those faithful followers over the past 2,000 years have done before us. May eternity show us to have been faithful and not only see this nation fall on its’ knees and repent, but see a mighty harvest of souls come to know Jesus as their Savior by faith! Amen??? AMEN!!!

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

FOX News, Football, and the Uncontrolled Selling of Sex in America

Leave a comment

(2 Peter 2:18, 1 Timothy 5:6, 2 Peter 2:13, Ecclesiastes 2:1, 5:18, 1 Corinthians 9:27, Romans 13:14, Proverbs 29:3, James 5:5)
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, please help me live today in YOUR power and not my own. Let me be guided this day by your Spirit and not my flesh. Today, I want my life to be a shining light of the Christ that lives within me. For your glory I pray oh Lord…AMEN!

FOX News, football, and the uncontrolled selling of sex in America. In talking about the uncontrolled selling of sex in America, I could use an easy target like the multi-billion dollar a year pornography industry that operates wide open without any real restrictions, but that would be too easy. How about I hit a little closer to home, a couple of places most of you probably make part of your daily lives, FOX News and football.

On the TV in my office, I have the FOX News channel playing in the background all day long. As most of you know, I am a huge football fan, college and pro. So I am hitting targets that are also a part of my daily life. Let’s start with FOX News. They are the darling and favorite of most people who hold more conservative political beliefs, and their slant on the issues do tend to be more from a Republican perspective. They have become the alternative to the more liberal CNN and MSNBC in the cable news world, and I would imagine most Christians watch FOX News.

Question. Ever wonder why they have absolutely drop dead gorgeous women as on-air talent? We are talking about stunning women, sitting on open sets in in very short skirts and high heels. Ever wonder why they sprinkle in throughout their “news,” tabloid stories of sex that allow them to show clips that are nearly X-rated? Even the great Bill O’Reilly has his obligatory porn star, prostitute stories every week.

Look no further than the Chairman of Newscorp that owns FOX News, Rupert Murdoch. Rupert Murdoch is one of the most powerful medial moguls on the planet. The worldwide media holdings of Newscorp are staggering. Included are the sensational NY Post, The Sun in London with their daily topless model, 20th Century Fox movies studios, and the FOX television network that brings us great wholesome family programs in prime time that make a mockery of marriage and glorify every kind of deviant sex imaginable. Several years ago, Murdoch bought the Direct TV satellite company that makes a HUGE profit from its channels that sell hard core, XXX rated pornographic movies to their subscribers. Murdoch is a world-class smut peddler!!!

As for football, out of all the major professional sports, the NFL is in the best shape financially. They have tremendous television ratings, a solid fan base, and is by far the most popular sport in America. Just ask the advertisers that fight over themselves and spend hundreds of millions of dollars to get those precious minutes on NFL and college football games. What used to be the fully-clothed “spokeswoman,” is now the nearly-naked women selling beer, soft drinks, cars, and everything else. The commercials during football games have become wars to see who can show the most flesh. SEX SELLS, my friend.

Some reading this today may think it is being written by an 80-year-old nun that never had sex in her life. I am 57 years old and am blessed to enjoy a very healthy sex life with my wife. Sex is a WONDERFUL gift from God that is intended to be shared by a man and woman in the bonds of marriage. Every day, I receive over 40,000 prayer requests. A sexual issue is involved in well over half of those prayer requests. The more mainstream promoting sex outside of God’s intended plan becomes, the more prayer requests I will continue to receive involving sexual issues.

Never forget, satan is here to steal, kill, and destroy. He is the great perverter, taking the perfection of God and perverting it. Sex has ALWAYS been one of his greatest traps and those who buy into his perversion can have their lives destroyed.

I love you and care about you so much. Does this mean you should stop watching FOX News? Does this mean you should stop watching football? Those are choices you have to make. I will say that some men I counsel who struggle with issues of lust, have stopped watching television all together. For most however, this word today is a WARNING. Men that would never think of watching an X-rated movie, are being hit with similar images watching something as ordinary as the news, something as ingrained into most men’s lives as football. And don’t think this is only targeted at men. More and more women are now being attacked by these mainstream sexual images as well.

I will be praying for you today. I pray today that you will guard your minds. I pray today that you will be AWARE of those images that you are allowing into your mind. I will still watch FOX News, but I do more listening than watching, and I simply tune out their obligatory “sex stories” they run with each day. I will still watch football. I simply find things to occupy my mind during the commercials.

We are in a war my friend. Satan is a defeated foe and is playing for keeps. Like in any war, you have to stay on guard at all times. Read the sixth chapter of Ephesians today. All of those in God’s army need to have their armor on at all times. That is why I tell you all the time to not neglect your daily time with the Lord. That is where you will get the strength to stand and fight when the attacks come each day. Those attacks can come at any time, even when you are watching the news or a football game.

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

Bill Keller

The Headlines aer Screaming for a Nation to Turn Back to God

Leave a comment

(Deuteronomy 8:19, 20)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, bless me this day to have the courage to stand up for YOUR TRUTH in my daily life. Give me boldness to proclaim YOUR TRUTH when I am with those who mock and demean our faith in Christ and for following the teachings of the Bible. No matter what they may say, let me be not afraid to stand for you. In Jesus name…AMEN

The headlines of the past few days are SCREAMING for a nation to turn back to God! The clear signs are being seen here and around the world that the judgment of God is falling, and our ONLY hope is to turn back to God and His Truth! As you read through these news headlines and the comments I made to help you see these individual issues in the context of the overall spiritual state of our nation, remember God’s hand of protection and blessings is OFF this nation! These are simply a few of the current daily signs to a lost and hurting nation in spiritual freefall to turn back to our Creator and His Truth, or we will face His ultimate wrath and judgment as the children of Israel did many times for their sin and rebellion!!!

-Donald Trump says he wants to shut down the “bad mosques.” Funny, since I have long advocated we do that for national security since throughout the 1400 year history of Islam the mosque has always been their command and control center. Also, people ridiculed Trump for saying we should have taken some of Iraq’s oil to cover our costs in liberating that nation from Saddam Hussein. That is exactly what ISIS has done, bringing in apx. $50 million a day to finance their terror operation.

-At the monthly Lake County, Florida Board of Commissioner’s meeting, it was opened by a self-described “minion of satan” who gave a satanic invocation.

-“Trouples” are 3 men or 3 women who want to be legally married. As I warned, there are numerous court cases regarding polygamists looking to be legally married. They are all using the exact same arguments that were used to legalize gay marriage. By the way, don’t be shocked when Muslims will petition the courts to legally marry children as they do in Islamic countries, stating it is a part of their religion.

-Did you know Hitler’s initial plan was to simply expel the Jews from Germany and the nation’s they conquered? The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, the leading Islamic cleric of Hitler’s day, encouraged him to exterminate the Jews!

-Illegal Alien is now considered a racial slur. You are supposed to refer to them as “undocumented foreign nationals.” To be correct however, anyone who has come into this nation illegally is a CRIMINAL!!!

-The Department of Justice has decided to drop all charges against the IRS and Lois Lerner. There is a plan to impeach the current IRS Administrator, though even if the House votes to impeach, they will never get 2/3 of the Senate. Trust me, if the IRS was investigating you, all of your harddrives were destroyed, you turned over none of the records they demanded, you would be in PRISON!

-The FBI reports it currently has 900 open ISIS investigations…IN THE UNITED STATES!!!

-Europe as we knew it is finished. I have no doubt this is God’s final judgment on these wicked nation’s who forsook the Almighty many decades ago. The invasion of Muslim men from Syria will ultimately breakdown the existing infrastructures for these countries to operate. Europe will become Islamic within the next two generations and reformulate as a Muslim super nation. The United States should be paying close attention since it could happen here just as easily!

-For all of the anti-gun, anti-2nd Amendment advocates, love to point to Europe and the fact guns are illegal. Today, the people in European nations wish they had a 2nd Amendment. The number one item Europeans are currently trying to get their hands on in the black market are guns to protect themselves and their families from the invading Muslim migrants.

-Bruce Jenner (he was born Bruce Jenner and will die Bruce Jenner no matter how many surgeries or name changes), has been named the “Woman of the Year” by Glamour Magazine. It is amusing that feminists and lesbians are outraged over this honor, claiming Jenner really isn’t a woman! A war within the world of sexual deviants!

-The quarterback of an upstate NY high school, a Christian, scored a touchdown and simply pointed to the heavens to give glory to God. He was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct! Sadly, HS coaches around the nation are being harassed for simply having prayer before and after games.

-The mainstream media outlets continue to promote the myth of Muslim victimhood, encouraged by Muslim advocacy groups like CAIR. This was the exact playbook the radical homosexual lobby used to mainstream that sexual sin.

-In case you have missed it, Mitt Romney has been VERY active as the current nominating process is underway. With Jeb Bush probably damaged beyond repair, should Trump or Carson begin winning delegates early next year, remember I told you Romney will get into the race!

-Newest Planned Parenthood video shows them plotting how to do later term abortions to keep the head and brain in tact so they can be harvested. Virtually ZERO coverage in the media as this nation is so lost it makes what Mengele and the Nazis did in the death camps look tame when you factor in the sheer numbers on a daily basis over the past 42 years!

-Not ONE WORD from President Obama on the Christian genocide that has taken place over the past 14 months or so. Hundreds of thousands of Christians in the Middle East have been slaughtered and the United States not only has not done ONE THING to stop it, but won’t even discuss it!

All of this only exacerbates the fact I have shared with you that God’s hand of protection is no longer on this nation. We are currently on our own. The only question is whether God’s final wrath and judgment will be unleashed ending this nation as we know it, or will we turn back to our Creator and His Truth before it is too late?

I love and care about you so much. God is showing us DAILY that we must stop, turn back to Him and His Truth or be destroyed as He promised to do in today’s anchor verse. I wake up every day with the knowledge and understanding that we can still be like the people of Nineveh and that 2015 will be a year of victory as our verse for the year states, “But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!”

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

Your Sacrifices Today Equals an Eternal Legacy through Changed Lives and Saved Souls

Leave a comment

(Colossian 3:23,24)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Lord, thank you for meeting my daily needs as you have promised in your Word. I look to you and your alone for my sustenance through life, and thank you for your faithfulness. Please help me to be a good steward of the funds you entrust into my care during this life, and give me favor in my finances, and wisdom in my decisions. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” Colossians 3:23,24

Your sacrifices today equals an eternal legacy through changes lives and saved souls, PLUS eternal rewards that are being stored up in Heaven! In looking back on the first 10 months of 2015, I am grateful for everyone who took the time to pray for Liveprayer, and those dear friends led and able to help us financially. This allowed us to bring God’s Truth into the marketplace, impact lives for Christ, pray for people with every type of need imaginable, and see lost souls won to faith in Jesus Christ! I also take very seriously the pastoral and prophetic role I play in so many lives each day.

During the past year for the glory of God, we sent out the Daily Devotional, now in our 17th year, daily to a little over 2.5 million subscribers worldwide. Our dedicated team of a little over 700 retired pastors enabled us to pray for and respond to just over 12 million emails for prayer so far (bringing that total to well over 120 million since Liveprayer began in August of 1999), which generated a little over 1 million Praise Reports (that total of archived Praise Reports is now over 10 million), and most important, so far we have seen apx. 100,000 people we know of come to faith in Jesus Christ through Liveprayer during the past year. That puts us over 1 million souls we know of coming to faith in Jesus since Liveprayer began during this year of victory of 2015!!!

Additionally, the Liveprayer TV program airs “live” every Mon-Fri from Midnight-2am on a major station in Chicago, as well as over 100 other markets around the nation!!!

The best demographic breakdown we have been able to determine is out of the 2.5 million Daily Devotional subscribers, 80% are in the United States and 20% are in other countries. 70% of the subscribers are Christians while 30% are not. 10% are 18 years and younger, 20% are between the ages of 19-30, 30% are between the ages of 30-50, and 40% are 50 years and over. The TV audience averages apx. 200,000 viewers each night. 20% of our viewer are 30 years and younger, 40% are between the ages of 30-50, and 40% are 50 years and over.

Financially, Liveprayer received right at $800,000 in donations during 2014, which averages just under $67,000 a month. Please review the previous paragraphs regarding all we were able to accomplish this past year. Available 24/7/365, we reached all of these people worldwide, provided all of the personal ministry, saw the incredible fruit for those efforts that undoubtedly was only a fraction of how God used our work, and provided all of the incredible content we produce daily as all as 17 years of accumulated content at Liveprayer.com…for FREE! We sold no books or merchandise, had no advertising revenues, just simply walked by faith and trusted the Lord to move on the hearts of those we minister to to help us. For reference, Liveprayer has the same budget of a local church with 1,000 members or even less!

My friend, 2014 was a similar story to each previous year since Liveprayer began in August of 1999. Like all of the years prior, it has been a true modern day “fishes and loaves” miracle. Now you may feel a bit foolish, but do me a favor and stop reading for a moment, stand up, and give the Lord a big applause and shout AMEN!!! To further prove the “fishes and loaves” analogy is accurate, that $800,000 came from just 480 people out of the millions we reached last year. Just 20 of those people were responsible for 25% of our total donations. This only further proves how critical every sacrifce people make is no matter what the amount, and the importance of “giving according to your ability to give” as the Bible teaches.

>From day one of Liveprayer, I have personally taken time out of my day to >pray over the daily accounting reports of our gifts for that day, since I >fully understand the great sacrifce so many of our friends make that >enables me on your behalf to do the Lord’s work. In that crowd of 5,000, no >doubt many of them had food, yet only one young man was willing to sacrifce >what he had so the Lord could feed the multitudes. Nothing has changed and >it is still the few God uses to feed the many!!!

A little over 93 cents of every dollar you sacrifice to Liveprayer goes to the work, with less than 7 cents eaten up in necessary overhead expenses. Of course, this is only possible because unlike most ministries, churches, and other non-profit organizations, I don’t ask you to make the sacrifice you do to build buildings that than have to be maintained. Liveprayer still operates out of the back few offices of the same used car lot in St. Petersburg owned by one of our board memebers that we began in back in 1999! I personally feel those buildings people give money to build really should be owned by those who gave the money and not become the asset of some denomination or ministry/individual! For instance, why does TBN own over 1 BILLION dollars of real estate when it rightfully should belong to the people who paid for it!

I also would never ask you to make the sacrifce you do so the “ministry” can have a huge staff that needs to be paid every Friday, buy private planes, luxury cars, multi-million dollar homes, or pay me an exorbitant salary. Actually, due to the economic downturn in 2008, I have sacrificed my personal salary (between $35k and $40k) for 5 years now, taking only what I have needed to live each month. God has faithfully met my needs of food, clothing, and shelter exactly as He promised to do, and after 22 years of ministry I have a home like millions of others that is underwater, worth only $250,000 with a $300,000 mortgage, a 7 year old car, and some clothes. I don’t have a retirement account even though I will be 57 in a few weeks, own any real estate, or hold any stocks and bonds. I simply trust God to meet my needs each month as I do the needs of Liveprayer, since the Bible correctly tells us we came into this world with nothing and we will leave it with nothing. But that is fine since God’s promise is true when it assures us that He “supplies all of my needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus!”

I fully understand that I am only able to fulfill the work God has called me to because of your prayers and those who make the sacrifice, often a great one, to help me insure the financial needs of Liveprayer are met. After 23 years of ministry, 17 years on the front lines through Liveprayer.com and the last 12+ years that included the Liveprayer TV program, satan know I will use every ounce of energy, brainpower, and whatever gifts and talents God blesses me with to serve Him. He knows I can’t be bought, won’t compromise God’s Truth no matter the personal consequences, and have been a faithful watchman as God describes in Ezekiel 33 whose hands have no blood on them! The only way satan has been able to slow me down in any way, is by restricting the funds coming into Liveprayer. That is why I am totally dependant upon your prayers and generous sacrifices each day. Satan is a defeated foe and every gift you send to Liveprayer is a confirmation of that fact.

I love you and care about you more than you will ever know. YOUR love, prayers, and sacrifice has made Liveprayer available over these many years, impacting tens of millions of lives worldwide. Let me leave you with 2 personal prayer requests. The first is I am asking the Lord for 5 people who I can call on during a critical financial emergency that occurs several times throughout each year. Many years ago prior to the financial meltdown in early 2008, I had around 30 people who I could call on during such a time, who if able, would help immediately with a gift of anywhere from $2,000-$20,000.

Sadly through the homegoing of many in that group and the financial hardships many have faced in their businesses over the last 5 years, that group is down to just a precious few. I treasure such friends of Liveprayer and have never or ever would abuse such a special relationship. That is why when I did reach out to them for help, if they were able, they immediately responded. Today I am simply asking the Lord for 5 people who if able, would be willing to help me at a critical time with a special gift of $2,000- $5,000. *If God is calling you to be one of these 5 people, please email me (bkeller@liveprayer.com) and let me know.

I am also praying today for 10 people who will commit to help Liveprayer with a special year-end gift of $1,000, and 2 who will commit to help with a special year-end gift of $5,000. Please stand with me in prayer for the Lord to move on the hearts of 12 of our friends who He has blessed to be able to make such a commitment that will help, along with the generous sacrificial gifts of so many others each month, to insure our monthly operations are always current. If God is calling you to be one of these 12, please email me (bkeller@liveprayer.com) and let me know.

2015 is a year of VICTORY! As our verse for the year, 1 Corinthians 15:57 tells us, “Thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!” BE EXPECTANT FOR WHAT GOD IS GOING TO DO IN THESE FINALS DAYS!!! As we stand and work together, may God richly bless our efforts for His Kingdom in bringing His Truth to the marketplace, praying for the needs of the hurting, leading lost souls to faith in Jesus Christ, and guiding this nation back to God and His Truth!!!

***OCTOBER FINANCIAL UPDATED: So far, we have received $23,000 of the $65,000 we require each month ($40,000 for our internet operations and $25,000 for our TV programs). That leaves us requiring $42,000 over the last 3 days to end October with all of our operations current!

—>If 6 friends would make a special year-end gift of $7,000, that would cover the balance!!! Please pray about what God is asking YOU to do to help me insure we end this month with all of our operations current!!! Thank You!!!

*Between now and the end of the year in 65 days, we will need $172,000 to cover all of our basic internet and TV operations to end the year with a zero balance. Please be praying about a special year-end gift to Liveprayer to insure that we end 2015 with all of our operations current. Just 172 of our friends making a special year-end gift to the Lord’s work here of $1,000 would insure what we require for operations are taken care of. It is your love, prayers, and generous sacrifice that has kept Liveprayer online for over 16 yrs and TV over 12 yrs, literally impacting tens of millions of lives worldwide and seeing over 1 million souls we know of come to faith in Jesus Christ. GOD BLESS YOU!!!

Satan’s Goals for Your Life

Leave a comment

(John 10:10)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, thank you for another day. Please let me never take even one day for granted, since each day is a gift from YOU! Help me to be a witness for you this day in my thoughts, words, and deeds. Let the Jesus in me shine bright during this day so that everyone I come in contact with knows that there is something different in my life. Help me to be a blessing to others and a bold witness for you. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

“Hi . . . i’m a 16 male from florida and i totally ruined my whole entire life and dreams for one night of lust… i have no clue what to do… i had intercourse with my best friend and she might be pregnant now…. and i have no clue what to do… i’ve been trying to get rid of the confusion by taking lots of pills and slicing myself … its helping but… you know how it is… your parents find out… they take you to a shrink… the shrink puts you on pills… then you take all the pills and they put in the hospital and now i’m back home slicing myself some more…any ways…pray that i will kill myself or be killed fairly soon… thanks a lot!!”

Sadly, I get emails like this every day. Eight out of the 10 are from men and women under 18 years old. Young men and women with their entire lives ahead of them. However, they made the choice to rebel against God and were faced with the very real-life consequences of their rebellion. Most mature adults do not handle the consequences of their sinful actions very well, so it is not surprising that a young man or woman would feel hopeless when faced with the reality of their rebellion.

Sadly, people of all ages underestimate satan’s goals even though Jesus clearly told us what they are in John 10:10. He is out to steal,kill, and destroy. Satan’s desire is to steal your hope, steal your joy, steal your peace, steal the abundance that this life can be. Satan wants to kill you. He wants you dead in your sin so that you will be forever separated from God, your Creator, and destined to spend eternity in the Lake of Fire that will be his eternal home. Satan wants to destroy you. If you are already a Christian, he wants to destroy your testimony, to destroy your ability to serve God, to destroy the plan and purpose God has for your life. My friend, satan is NOT playing games, he is deadly serious!!!

That is why I am so passionate each day in what I share with you in regard to sin. Each day, I receive over 40,000 prayer requests from all over the world. Literally 7 days a week I am dealing with the very real lives, of very real people, that due to sin have had their lives turned upside down. I get to see daily the destruction of sin in people’s lives. Satan is an equal opportunity destroyer. He doesn’t care if you are young or old, if you are male or female, if you are white or black. Satan doesn’t care if you are rich or poor, where you live, how intelligent you may or may not be. SIN IS A UNIVERSAL ISSUE THAT ALL MEN AND WOMEN DEAL WITH EVERY DAY!

I realize that I can’t force you to follow God, or to obey Him. I understand that you have to make your own choices. What God has called me to do is simply share the TRUTH of His Word with you each day. It really boils down to this. When you obey God, you will be blessed. When you rebel against God, you will face the consequences. Obeying God brings blessings, disobeying God brings consequences. This is true whether you are 10 or 100, and every age in between.

I love you and care about you so much. Satan is NOT some cartoon character created by Walt Disney. Satan is a very REAL force in the world for this short season. He is not to be feared, but understood. We must never forget that for this brief season, he is very much on the loose, with the clearly defined goal to steal, kill, and destroy the lives of real people. However, there is no reason to fear satan because 2000 years ago Jesus Christ rose out of His tomb and sealed the enemy’s eternal fate. He is a defeated foe! The Bible proclaims that, “Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world.”

I will be praying for you today. I pray that you will not take sin lightly, or the potential consequences of sin in your life. The email I shared at the top said, “i totally ruined my whole entire life and dreams for one night of lust.” The fact is that is not true. Satan is a LIAR. John 8:44 tells us that he is the “father of lies!” God gives us a great promise in 1 John 1:9 that if we will confess our sins, He will forgive us, and cleanse us of all unrighteousness. It does NOT say that we will escape the consequences of our sins, but that God will forgive us and give us the grace and strength to deal with whatever they may be.

The good news is that this young man’s life is NOT over, and that God still has a plan and purpose for him if he will surrender it to the Lord. The good news is that YOUR life is not over, simply because you have sinned. The key is to go to God, confess your sins, receive His forgiveness, and move forward with your life. God is a God of grace, mercy, and restoration. Satan will lie to you and tell you that you are worthless because of your sin and that you have no hope. The truth is that God never stops loving you and that your hope is in Him. Satan wants to destroy you, God wants to bless you. Satan wants you to die, God wants you to live. May you choose the God of hope, blessing, and life!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

(Psalms 41:1)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, thank you for another day. Please let me never take even one day for granted, since each day is a gift from YOU! Help me to be a witness for you this day in my thoughts, words, and deeds. Let the Jesus in me shine bright during this day so that everyone I come in contact with knows that there is something different in my life. Help me to be a blessing to others and a bold witness for you. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

I want to encourage you someday to take about an hour, sit down with your Bible, and look at all the scriptures concerning care for the poor and needy. One thing I have learned to understand about God and the way He has divinely given us His word, is when you see the same issue talked about over and over, especially throughout the Bible from the Old to New Testament, God is trying to emphasize a point.

He could not be clearer as to our responsibility to help the poor. Now of course, this immediately brings to mind mental images of the homeless, those begging on corners for food, the ones who occupy the shelters at night. But I want you to focus today, not on those who are financially poor, but those who are spiritually poor.

Throughout Jesus’ earthly ministry, He reached out to all segments of society. To those who had wealth and resources, He tried to focus them on their bankrupt spiritual life. Jesus said, “What shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?”

Today, I want you to be aware of the “poor” people you may come in contact with every day, not financially poor, but spiritually poor. We have a responsibility to share the Good News of Jesus Christ, the hope and love of Christ with these people just as we would share a meal with someone who is hungry. It is not an option, but an obligation we have as followers of Christ to reach out to those who are hurting and need to know there are answers beyond the things of this world.

I am going to pray today that you take this challenge to heart and really focus, not just on the visibly poor you may see each day, but also those who may have much worldly riches, but be broke spiritually. You see, in those difficult times we all face in life, losing a loved one, moving, changing jobs, troubles at home, whatever the issue may be, money can rarely help. Only the strength, wisdom, and love of Christ can get us through those most difficult times in our life.

Open your eyes today and look at those around you who may need a spiritual handout today to make it!

I love you and care for you. I deeply appreciate your kindness, prayers and loving support of our work at Liveprayer.com. I want to encourage you today to remember us as we are moving this ministry forward. Daily, we send out our Daily Devotional to over 2.4 million email accounts worldwide, and respond to over 40,000 special request emails daily. God has given us a great task to touch peoples lives via this Internet ministry.

I cannot do it alone. I need your prayers. I need your financial help since everything we do is available at no cost. Like all ministries, the support of friends like you makes it possible for us to do what we do each and every day. God has placed us in a position to minister on a daily basis to more people than even the largest churches and media ministries in the nation at a fraction of the cost. I have not slowed down what we are doing, in fact, have even become more aggressive in reaching out to those who are hurting, trusting God would honor our faithfulness.

YOU MAKE THAT POSSIBLE!

Thanks you for all you do. I deeply care about you. Pray today about helping those who are spiritually poor in your life. Pray about standing with me today in support of our work here at Liveprayer.com. It is no accident you are receiving these devotional each day, and no accident God is speaking to your heart right now. Listen and be obedient.

As we go into the last 11 days of April, please be in prayer with me for the operational finances we need to bring in right away. We finally covered the balance of our March shortfall, and now need to bring in the $40,000 we need for April’s operations. $5,000 of that is past due and needed immediately.

As we prepare to take advantage of new doors the Lord is opening for us to have a highly visible place in the marketplace to help lead the remnant and call this nation back to God and His Truth, I’m simply asking you to pray today and seek the Lord what He is calling you to do to help me to cover this $40,00 balance to insure all of our basic operational needs are met. Never forget that God will honor your heart as you obey His voice. Will you help me today? Will you please take a minute today, and pray, seek the Lord what He is asking you to sacrifce.
