Did you know satan has read the Bible?

(Genesis 3:1-6)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Please Lord bless me and my family today. Help us to never forget to honor You and praise Your holy name. Thank You for Your blessings. Let us be good stewards of those blessings and never forget to reach out to others and be a blessing to those who cross our path each day. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!!!

One of the most stupid things we can do in his life is try to negotiate with or talk with Satan. Now I realize many people doubt that there really is a Satan, that he is some mythical character with horns, a red cape, and a pitchfork. Some think that Satan is not real, but what we call the evil side of life, something to blame all of the pain and suffering on.

As in everything, rather than try to sort through what we think Satan is, let’s go to the Bible and see who he really is. In Ezekiel chapter 28, we find out that the devil was at one time an angel, with access to the very throne room of God. Isa! iah the
prophet tells of his fall in chapter 14, after Satan desired the very throne of God and is cast out of Heaven because of pride, taking along 1/3 of the angels who followed him.

A quick side note. Maybe now you can see why pride is so dangerous; it was the original sin in the universe. Satan is intelligent, has a memory, a will, emotions, and great organizational ability.

THE DEVIL HAS READ THE BIBLE!!!

Think about that. If your enemy has read the Bible, how much more do we have to? He is busy. He imitates God, perverts the Word of God, hinders the works of God’s servants, blinds men to the Truth, accuses Christians before God, tempts, afflicts, deceives, undermines the sanctity of the home, and tries to disrupt the prayers of God’s people. Can you see why he is so dangerous?

However, let me clearly tell you that his powers are limited. He is NOT omnipresent. He cannot be in more than one place at a time. He is NOT omniscient. He does not know everyth! ing. He
is NOT omnipotent. He is not all powerful. These are only attributes of God himself. Also, and hear this clearly . . . Satan can DO NOTHING apart from God allowing it to happen as in the example of Job.

The good news is that he has already been defeated by Christ. God foretold of Satan’s demise even as early as Genesis 3:15. Knowing that prophecy, Satan and his demons must have been rejoicing as Christ took His last breath on the cross. However, their rejoicing turned to terror just 3 days later when Christ rose from the dead. The resurrection of Jesus Christ sealed Satan’s doom once and for all.

The Bible tells us that his final destination is the Lake of Fire for eternity. That is why it is so sad to see people reject Christ. They are going to spend eternity in a place that was never created for man, but for Satan and his fallen demons.

My prayer for you today is that you will recognize who your enemy is and stand in the midst of whatever he may try to t! hrow at
you. Satan’s final resting place will not occur until after the millennium, which is after the 7 year Tribulation, which happens after the Rapture. Until then, we still have to contend with Satan and his hosts. Satan claims authority over this world, which is why he is called the god of this world.

I love you. Satan has the power to blind sinners to the truth, contends for the saints to destroy their lives of service and their testimony. He is a very real foe that we must contend with. That is why the Bible warns us to be self-controlled and alert, to submit to God and resist the devil..to stand firm in the faith. Ephesians 6:11 tells us to “put on the whole armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.” Ephesians 4:27 says ” . . . do not give the devil a foothold.”

Those who have put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ are protected by His blood. We do not have to live in fear, but in victory. When Jesus was in the wilderness and Sa! tan came
to tempt Him, Jesus didn’t try to negotiate with him or debate him. He simply stood on the Word of God. Stand on that word today that says “greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.” The best way to deal with Satan is by taking souls on the way to Hell, and reroute them to Heaven.

I love you and care about you. Live in the victory that Jesus Christ has given us each and every day!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend, brother, and co-laborer in Christ,

Liveprayer is a work of God to battle a culture in spiritual freefall!!!

(1 Corinthians 15:57)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, watch over your work here at Liveprayer and protect us from the minions of satan who seek to hamper and stop that work! Thank you for the dear friends you have brought to us to pray for your work here, and those who sacrificially give to enable Liveprayer to have our voice in the marketplace to battle satan for the souls of men! Help us to stay close to you, to be obedient and faithful each day, and empower us to guide lost souls to faith in Jesus Christ. It is in the name of Jesus we pray…AMEN!!!

***IF YOU MISSED THE FIRST PART OF TODAY’S DAILY DEVOTIONAL YESTERDAY, HERE IS THE LINK: https://liveprayer.com/devotional.cfm?id=54059

Liveprayer is a work of God to battle a culture in spiritual freefall!!! As someone who is 61 years old, I have sadly lived through and given personal witness to the incredible spiritual erosion within our culture over the past 5 decades. Anyone ! who has
been reading the Daily Devotional and/or watching the Liveprayer TV program for any period of time, knows that I have not only been warning about what was happening in our culture almost daily, but challenging Christians to take their stand or we could ultimately see the full wrath and judgment of God poured out on our land.

Lest you think like many have accused me over the past 2 decades that I am being over dramatic and speaking in hyperbole, just read the Old Testament! How many times did we see the children of Israel, God’s chosen people, turn away from God and His Truth and embrace the sin and evil of this world. More important, despite many warnings and His continual grace and mercy, God ultimately rained down His wrath on His people for their rebellion, their sin and wickedness!

Are we so arrogant to think that Almighty God, who spared not His wrath and judgement on the children of Israel would not also pour out his wrath and judgment on this nation?

Just
under 3 years ago, God sent the nation a sign. You have to have virtually ZERO discernment not to see God allowing a lifetime hedonist who has demonstrated little moral or ethical restraint in 40 years of a very public life, a man who had never ran for or held any political office in his life, to become the 45th President of the United States!

Whatever your political or personal thoughts about President Trump may be, we know from God’s Word that it is God who allows men to rise to power, and God who takes men out of power. Understanding that truth, it is hard to know why God would allow such evil men as a Hitler or a Stalin or any number of pure satanically led rulers over the last 6,000 years of human history. So we know that each President of the United States has been divinely appointed to that office for the time they led our nation, and that includes the current President, Donald Trump!

I shared in a Daily Devotional in the days following the 2016 election! that I
believed in my heart God had allowed Donald Trump to become President for a brief slowdown or reprieve for 4 to 8 years from the spiritual freefall our nation was experiencing. It is simply a fact that under the 8 years of the Obama Administration, the nation was being governed by a man who was no friend of Christians, on top of opposing God on every spiritual issue of the day. Issues such as sexual deviancy, the perversion of God’s Holy Institution of Marriage, life, Israel, and Christian liberties.

Again, regardless of your personal thoughts, in deeds not words, President Trump has been the most pro-life, pro-Israel, pro-Christian liberties President in the history of our nation!!!

At this moment in time, Christians in the United States are also seeing very real and concerted efforts to not just silence, but eliminate all together Biblical Truth and the Gospel from being shared via the main outlets we use to bring information into people’s lives. The mainst! ream
(non-Christian) media and social network giants are purposely working to minimize Biblical Truth and the Gospel of Jesus Christ from being disseminated to the lost and hurting masses.

In a nation that embraces free speech and makes it a hallmark of our vast freedoms, those who oppose the work of God and His Truth aren’t interested in a debate, but in literally silencing those beliefs they disagree with. The vast percentage of the last 2 generations have never even been to church. A larger percentage of the population than ever before rejects God, the Bible, and faith in Jesus Christ. This makes reaching these lost and hurting masses more critical than ever, yet the challenges to do so via the mainstream information outlets have never been greater!

Sadly, a large part of the blame has to be on the Christian community and the church. Not surprisingly, the spiritual decline over the past 5 decades has coincided with the largest percentage of Christians retreatin! g to the
safety, profitability, and isolation of the Christian sub-culture they have created. Jesus questioned in the Gospels the lack of “salt and light.” During the past 50 years we have dramatically seen what removing the “salt and light” from the culture leads to.

In this void, satan has quickly moved in, much like Isis created their caliphate in Iraq and parts of Syria as the United States troops pulled out of that region. As the church left the culture, it was replaced by every sinful, life destroying trap satan has dreamed up. In filling that void, satan also birthed a “fake church” that I have spoken of in several recent Daily Devotionals. Satan has also filled that void with people who identify as “Christians,” yet live their lives in arrogant, unrepentant rebellion to God and the Truth of the Bible.

2018, the year satan thought Liveprayer would be gone, proved to be the most productive year of ministry Liveprayer has ever had. As the culture! has become more Godless,
as more people live their lives without ever having even been to church, we were being taxed daily with more requests for prayer and counseling than ever. We were also seeing more people come to faith in Jesus each month than at any other time in the history of Liveprayer. GOD IS GREAT!

So far, 2019 has been a continuation of 2018 in terms of the amount of people coming to Liveprayer each day for prayer and counsel. As much as our nation has deteriorated spiritually, it is literally happening before our very eyes each day in very visible ways. With most churches and ministries hiding in the Christian subculture, with the media and other major platforms used to reach the culture purposely working to silence the Truth of the Bible and Gospel, now more than ever the boldness, fearlessness, and clarity of our voice at Liveprayer is critical.

NOW…MORE THAN EVER…THE BOLDNESS, FEARLESSNESS, AND CLARITY OF OUR VOICE AT LIVEPRAYER IS CRITICAL TO HELP LEAD THIS NATION ! OUT OF
THE SPIRITUAL ABYSS AND BACK TO FAITH IN GOD AND THE TRUTH OF HIS WORD!!!

Every year since Liveprayer began, we have struggled to cover our monthly ministry operations in June, July, and August. It makes sense since this is the time of year many aren’t quite as plugged in, kids are out of school for the summer, and whether it is vacations or just enjoying the summer weather, people tend to live a more relaxed lifestyle. This is an issue most churches and other types of charities face each year as well.

***As we are just 5 days from the end of June, we just cleared up the balance of our May shortfall early last week. We have only been working on the $55,000 we require for our June ministry operations over the past few days and have received the first $8,000, leaving the final $47,000.

It is critical to cover $20,000 of that final amount IMMEDIATELY, and the final $27,000 by Friday to end the month with all of our June ministry operations paid in full. OUR ! GOD IS
ABLE!!!

Of course this coming Monday begins the month of July, and then 31 days later we begin the 31 days of August. We require $55,000 for our July ministry operations and $55,000 for our August ministry operations. So over the next 67 days we require $157,000 to go into the final 4 months of 2019 with all of our basic ministry operation current!!!

I NEED YOUR HELP!!! PLEASE BE PRAYING ABOUT WHAT YOU CAN DO!!!

TO GIVE A GIFT TO LIVEPRAYER, you can use your major credit card at: http://www.liveprayer.com/donate.cfm or you can mail your gift to: Liveprayer, 6660 46th Ave. North, St. Petersburg, FL 33709. All gifts to Liveprayer are 100% tax deductible!!!

I love you and care about you so much!!! I am asking everyone today to take 5 minutes, 300 seconds, and pray for Liveprayer. First, please thank God for the 20 years of His work here at Liveprayer. It has been such an incredible blessing to have a front row seat for 2 decades, literally EVERY DAY wat! ching God
work in the lives of people, many at the most desperate time in their lives.

Second, seek the Lord what He is leading YOU to do to help me to take care of the final $47,000 we require for our June ministry obligations over the next 6 days, as well as the $110,000 we will require to take care of July and August. Possibly some have sold a home or real estate and are praying about where to tithe some of those funds. Others might have had a business windfall or insurance settlement that you are praying about where to tithe some of those funds. Still others simply might have funds that you are being led to use for the Lord’s work and are seeking His guidance. Trust the Lord and be obedient since that is where our blessings flow from.

Thirdly, pray for the Lord to guide people in their time of need to “find” Liveprayer. Pray about how God can use YOU to share the TV program with people you know, the Daily Devotional to those who are at a time of great need in th! eir life. Much
of the great work God has done through Liveprayer over these past 2 decades has happened because friends like you knew people who needed the Lord in their life, often at a most difficult time.

Liveprayer has been a true work of God during this brief moment of human history to impact specific lives. As much as I have lived and breathed Liveprayer virtually every second of every day for the past 20 years, it is still IMPOSSIBLE for me to even remotely know more than 5%, at best, of the lives God has impacted here.

However, my Bible says the Lord knows the very number of hairs on your head! He knows EVERY PERSON INTIMATELY that has been spiritually fed through this work here at Liveprayer since we began. That is why many, many years ago I realized that I only had one real job. Wake up each day, plug in tightly to the Lord through prayer and the Word, walk by faith trusting Him every step, and be obedient and faithful. GOD WOULD DO THE REST!!!! AMEN!!!

“But t! hanks be to
God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:57

In His love and service,

Your friend, brother, and co-laborer in Christ,

Bill Keller

Walk by faith, be obedient, be faithful, and God will do the rest!!!

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, You are our provider each day as You promised in Your Word. Today I pray for Your favor and blessings to be upon all that I do. My hope is not in the things of this passing world, but in the eternal truth of Your promises. Guide my every step Lord, and may You be glorified through my life for all the world to see. In the name of Jesus my Lord, Savior, and Redeemer I pray…AMEN!!!

Liveprayer.com signed on to the internet at exactly Noon EDT on Tuesday, August 31, 1999. As I signed us on, Michele Beardon, the Religion Editor for the than Tampa Bay News, was there to do a feature story on this new ministry. We had a camera crew present to video the event, and a copy of that video was sent to the National Religious Broadcasters for their historical archives.

Liveprayer was not just the first interactive Christian websites, but it was the very first non-pornographic website to offer LIVE v! ideo.
For the first several years we had a small studio in the back of the used car lot our offices have been located at from day one, and a LIVE prayer partner was on camera literally 24/7 to pray for people who came to Liveprayer for prayer!

Liveprayer was truly a God-breathed miracle, since I literally walked by faith that first day and every day since. I had no real idea what Liveprayer would become, but as I was obedient and faithful each day, God began to shape what would become a bold and visible ministry online. A few years later we would add a TV program to air only on non-Christian TV.

As we approach our 20th anniversary, God has used Liveprayer to literally impact tens of millions of lives worldwide!!!

I have written over 7,000 Daily Devotionals that for years now has gone to apx 2.5 million subscribers worldwide every morning in order to bring God’s Truth and the love and hope of Christ into the marketplace. We have broadcast several thousand LIVE ! TV programs
reaching millions of people on various non-Christian TV stations and networks. Liveprayer has prayed over and responded to over 150 million emails for prayer and have an archive of right at 15 million praise reports as a testimony to God’s faithfulness and miracle working power in the lives of people.

Most important, we have seen at Liveprayer over 1.4 million people we know of come to faith in Jesus Christ!!!

Those impacted live and souls who will be forever with their Savior Jesus will be my eternal legacy, as well as the eternal legacy of every person over these past 2 decades who prayed for me and for Liveprayer! Those dear pople along with the thousands of friends over these past 20 years who have sacrificially given, in some cases making great personal sacrifices, enabling us to accomplish all that God has called for us to do for Him and His Kingdom in these last days.

When I began Liveprayer, I simply prayed for the Lord to meet our financial need! s each
month necessary to do the work He had called us to. I had no interest in turning the ministry into a marketing business to sell books, tapes, and products. I had no desire to acquire land and buildings. I certainly was not motivated to see how much personal wealth I could accumulate in homes, luxury cars, private jets.

I had spent my 20s running from God making millions in the business world and understood the folly of chasing money. I simply asked the Lord to provide for my daily personal needs and shared the needs of the ministry each month, walking in faith each day that the Lord would move on the hearts of people to make the sacrifice to give some of their treasure to fund God’s work here at Liveprayer. Each month for 20 years God has been faithful!!!

Because I refused to turn God’s work here at Liveprayer into a money machine as so many ministries have become, I have had the incredible freedom to boldly preach the unadulterated truth of God’s work wi! thout
compromise. I know for a fact the millions in lost donations from people who were upset that Liveprayer talked about issues that upset people ranging from certain cults to abortion to people living together outside of marriage to the reality of satan and hell.

Many angry emails told me that I was too intolerant, I was being hateful, that I was a bigot, and they were no longer going to send Liveprayer their money. I have been told more times than I can count that I shouldn’t talk about things that upset people, to be more like that nice man who is so upbeat..Joel Osteen! (For those who have been part of Liveprayer for any length of time, you can insert your laughing emjoi here!)

Because I refuse to back down from telling God’s Truth, because I refuse to simply use the ministry to generate personal wealth, satan has only had one weapon to fight me and that has been our monthly operating budget. For clarity, our current monthly operating budget of $55,000 is ! equivalent to
a local church with a congregation of less than 1,000 people! When you factor the number of people we reach every day for just over $1,800, it is really a modern day loaves and fishes miracle.

However, when you aren’t buying property, paying to build and upkeep buildings, have a huge payroll to meet every Friday, aren’t paying to park, gas, and fly private planes, don’t have several luxury cars to replace each year, you aren’t paying the dollars required to maintain several multi-million dollar homes…when 93 cents of every dollar is going to the actual work of God…it is amazing how much you can do with so little in comparison to the dollars squandered by this world!

It has been amazing over these many years as we have struggled probably 80% of the 238 months we have been online. However, God has always honored our faith and always come through! We have been in some really tight spots probably about 6 times when the Lord led someone to help us wit! h a special gift
of $30,000, $50,000, $80,000, and a one very critical time $100,000!

The only time Liveprayer was literally at the place we were going to have to close down since we couldn’t meet our operating obligations was the final 4 months of 2017. We were at a place where as I stood each day in faith, I had to realize that perhaps our season was over. I knew in my heart we still had much more to do, but in the end it was God’s work.

As we were literally shutting down different aspects of our daily ministry each week, determined to keep what we could going until we had none of our ministry services running, God led one dear friend to send a special gift of $100,000. That gift enabled us to get our basic daily ministry operations back in full operation to the glory of God!

2018, the year satan thought we would be gone, proved to be the most productive year of ministry Liveprayer has ever had. As the culture has become more Godless, as more people live their live! s without
ever having even been to church, we were being taxed daily with more requests for prayer and counseling than ever. We were also seeing more people come to faith in Jesus each month than at any other time in the history of Liveprayer. GOD IS GREAT!

So far, 2019 has been a continuation of 2018 in terms of the amount of people coming to Liveprayer each day for prayer and counsel. As much as our nation has deteriorated spiritually, it is literally happening before our very eyes each day in very visible ways. With most churches and ministries hiding in the Christian subculture, with the media and other major entities used to reach the culture purposely working to silence the Truth of the Bible and Gospel, now more than ever the boldness, fearlessness, and clarity of our voice at Liveprayer is critical.

Since 2003, a part of the Liveprayer ministry has been the TV program. I purposely refused to go on the Christian networks since our work here is to reach those outsi! de of the
four walls of the church. 98% of the people who watch Christian TV are already Christians. For most of the past 15 years, the TV program has been on major secular network affiliates around the nation and for 6 months in 2006 nationally on the ION Network.

The TV program has been a great compliment to the Daily Devotional to bring Biblical Truth into the marketplace where people live. After a hiatus of 18 months, we re-launched the TV program on Thanksgiving 2018. We brought the TV program back strictly on a streaming basis since that is how over 50% of people now watch TV, and in the next 5 years it will be over 70%. It is also costing the ministry a fraction of what traditional TV used to cost us each month!

LIVE every Mon-Fri from 11pm EDT to Midnight, it is aired on our website and simulcast LIVE on the Liveprayer Church ROKU channel as well as our Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube pages. All programs are available for ON DEMAND viewing on our Facebook, Twitte! r, and
YouTube pages. It is a very relaxed and personal opportunity for me every Monday-Friday to talk about exactly what is happening in our world at that very moment, the real world events in the news that day, and put it all in a Biblical context.

Tomorrow, I am going to share a very special Daily Devotional about the state of our culture at this very moment. I will share with you about the terrible spiritual erosion we have seen in the past 5 decades, how after 8 years of the anti-Christian Obama Administration God gave the nation a brief reprieve in the form of a most unlikely person, Donald Trump.

Despite being a pro-Christian, pro-life, pro-Christian liberties President, the fact is at this moment in history there is a very real and focused effort to silence Biblical Truth and the Gospel from the masses using the traditional outlets used to reach people 24/7 in the marketplace. This makes the challenge to reach the growing percentage of people who have never be! en to
church and have had their worldview and beliefs shaped by the Godless culture even more difficult.

I will also share with you that as the church has mostly retreated to the safety, profitability, and isolation of the Christian subculture they have created over the past 5 decades, in that void of “salt and light” has risen up a “fake church” and people who identify as “Christian” but live their lives in blatant and unrepentant rebellion to Almighty God and the Truth of the Bible!

Every year since Liveprayer began, we have struggled to cover our monthly ministry operations in June, July, and August. It makes sense since this is the time of year many aren’t quite as plugged in, kids are out of school for the summer, and whether it is vacations or just enjoying the summer weather, people tend to live a more relaxed lifestyle.

It is critical to cover $19,000 of that final amount in the next couple of days, and the final $31,000 by Friday to end the month with all of our June ministry operations paid in full. OUR GOD IS ABLE!!!

Of course next Monday begins July and then 31 days later we begin the 31 days of August. We require $55,000 for our July ministry operations and $55,000 for our August ministry operations. So over the next 68 days we require $160,000 to go into the final 4 months of 2019 with all of our basic ministry operation current!!!

Leave a comment

(1 Thessalonians 4:3, Genesis 18:16-19, Romans 1:18-32; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, please help me to be more like Jesus each day. Help me to be kind to others, to care about others, to share the hope of the Gospel with others. I love Jesus and my greatest desire is to be more like my Savior each day. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!!!

ANNOUNCEMENT!!! Bill Keller is coming out!!! Just a couple years ago, Apple CEO Tim Cook announcing to the world he is “gay,” and that being a homosexual is a “gift from God,” I have decided it is now the right time for me to come out. I ask for your love, your prayers, your support, and that you don’t judge me. Please understand I can’t help myself, I was “born this way!”

I EAT VANILLA HAAGEN-DAZS ICE CREAM WITH CHUNKY PEANUT BUTTER MIXED IN AND SOME MACADAMIA NUTS ON TOP!!!

Last week in Orlando, there were several events marking the 3 year anniversary of the massacre ! at a gay
nightclub in Orlando. I remember at the time there were actually people trying to make the case that the intentional killing of people who choose to engage in perverted sex with others of the same sex was because of hatred by Christians. The only blame for what happened at that Orlando nightclub was on the shoulders of the evil monster who killed those people and his evil religion of Islam that teaches that it is OK to kill people who engage in same sex relations!

Islam teaches to kill those in bondage to homosexuality, Christianity teaches to pray for them to find freedom from their bondage through Christ!!!

Sadly in the past Pope Francis has floated statements like “who am I to judge,” and “God is not afraid of new things,” to indicate the Roman Catholic Church is softening its stance on homosexuality and gay marriage. To help the Pope’s flawed thinking, he doesn’t have to judge since it is God in the Bible who calls homosexuality a sin and there is nothing new! about
this sexual sin.

Recently, the Southern Baptists were holding their annual conference and dedicated a fair amount of time to discuss the issue of homosexuality and gay marriage. Maybe I am slow, but what is there to discuss? Will they be discussing adultery and polygamy next? If our churches can’t even take a strong stand for God’s Holy Institution of Marriage and the sin of homosexuality, why would we expect the lost world to?

Cook also said he will be actively fighting for the “civil rights” of those in the LGBT community! Let me help Mr. Cook. Modern science has CLEARLY rejected and been unable to prove the LIE that ANYONE is “born gay.” IT IS A CHOICE!!!! 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. You are born black or white, you are born with blue eyes or green eyes, taking off your pants to have sex is a CHOICE!

This blows out of the water the fraudulent argu! ment that
people who CHOOSE to engage in such perverted behavior have any sort of “civil rights” simply by virtue of their choice of sex. As a white person, I am insulted by this specious argument. Every black person should be disgusted to compare a legitimate movement like the rights they deserved as a human being, with special rights for people who CHOOSE to engage in perverted sex acts with people of the same sex!

Several years ago, I was vindicated by the Federal Government of all entities. For these past 20 years of Liveprayer, I have exposed for you and have been refuting the LIE propagated by the pro-homosexual community that 10% of the population chooses to engage in unnatural, unhealthy, and perverted sex acts with members of the same sex. My contention is that the number is actually in the 1% range of people who ever engage in that type of perverted sex.

Well, the CDC has published a large and current survey of what percentage of the population considers themselv! es “gay,”
“lesbian,” “bisexual,” or “transgendered.” That percentage is NOT 10%, but under TWO PERCENT as I have been telling you and the nation for the past 2o yrs here at Liveprayer.com and 15 yrs on the Liveprayer TV program! Sadly, because this sin has been mainstreamed into our culture, I have no doubt the percentage today is probably in the 3-4% range, but certainly UNDER 5%!

My friend, once and for all there is no such thing as someone who is gay or lesbian, only people who CHOOSE to engage in homosexual acts. As I have shared in the past, someone who calls themselves “transgendered” is simply dealing with a mental illness! If God made created a person as a male, that person is a male, and if God created a person as a woman that person is a woman!

The sins of a person who chooses to commit the sin of homosexuality are no worse or better than my sins or yours. We can hate the sinful act they choose to engage in, but we must love the person since Jesus died for their! sins
just like He died for my sins and yours. Liveprayer has helped tens of thousands of men and women find freedom from this bondage over the years!

Homosexuality is a bondage just like those addicted to alcohol, drugs, gambling, and anything else people become enslaved to!!!

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.

When you condemn those who choose this sin, you are not judging them. God already did that when HE, not me, called homosexuality a sin from the beginning of the Bible to the end. A foolish argument from those who choose this sin is that “why would anyone choose something that brought them ridicule, condemna! tion, and
the hatred of so many?”

People make that choice every day! I deal with men and women daily 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.

Another foolish question is, “When did you choose to be heterosexual?” You don’t have to choose to be how God made you. However, you DO have to CHOOSE to engage in unnatural and unhealthy acts that God never intended you to engage in. You don’t have to choose to be how God made you, you DO have to choose to live in rebellion to how God made you.

Also, the “love” argument is equally as foolish., since it is an unnatural love God never intended. A pedophile could use that same argument, as could someone who is engaged in bestiality. You can’t excuse sin by using a perverted form of love!

I love you and care about you so much. Pray for Tim Cook and all of thos! e who are
in this bondage of same sex relations. Theologically this is not even a debatable issue. 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.

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…EVEN TO THE CHURCH!!! They have done a great job of selling this lie since most in this nation now accept this deviant choice of sex as normal and acceptable!

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 bondag! e 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.

For those reading this who are currently fighting homosexuality, let me tell you that God has never stopped loving you, and is simply waiting for you to turn from your sin and come back to Him. We serve a God of deliverance from sin, a God of forgiveness, and a God of restoration.

Millions have turned from the sin of homosexuality and found complete restoration and fulfillment in living a life according to God’s plan. What He did for someone else, He can do for you! I pray today t! hat you
hear these words, and choose to find freedom from your sin today. That freedom is only a prayer away!

The Bible declares the TRUTH shall set them free. May we be brave enough and bold enough, despite the persecution to proclaim God’s TRUTH about the sin of homosexuality!!!

What do you do while waiting to die?

Leave a comment

(2 Peter 3:9; 2 Corinthians 6:2)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, give me a passion for Your Word. Give me a desire each day to read and consume Your precious Word that really is a lamp unto my feet and a guide for my life. I pray each day that I cannot just be a consumer of Your Word, but a DOER of Your Word. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!!!

What do you do while waiting to die? Having written over 5,000 Daily Devotionals during the past 15 years, this is one of the most powerful salvation messages I have shared with you. Nine years ago, I wrote a powerful Daily Devotional that led over 300 souls we know of to faith in Christ in the days after it was sent out. I want to share this critical message with you today, since while the events took place 14 years ago, they are just as relevant and the application just as meaningful as the day I wrote these words. Please share this Daily Devotional with every family member, friend, neighbor, co-worker, and a! nyone
else you know who is lost and without faith in Jesus Christ.

(from 09/23/05)

“Wednesday evening around 6:45 I was in bed getting ready for my night’s sleep. Because of my crazy schedule, my main sleeping hours each day are from around 7-11 in the evening. I was flipping through the various cable news stations to catch up on some of the day’s news before going to sleep and stopped on MSNBC and their coverage of a problem with a Jet Blue flight from Los Angeles to New York. As I watched this drama unfold over the next several hours with the lives of 139 passengers plus the crew hanging in the balance, I was thinking to myself, what do you do while you are waiting to possibly die?

Jet Blue flight 292 took off from the Burbank Airport at 3:17 p.m.PDT for New York’s JFK Airport. Shortly after taking off, the pilot became aware that the front landing gear had not retracted properly after take-off, and was not only stuck in the “down” position, but the wheels were! turned
sideways at a 90-degree angle. After consulting with all of the various mechanics and FAA people, they decided to go into a holding pattern for several hours to burn off most of the fuel since the plane was full in order to make the cross-country flight. After most of the fuel was burned off, they would then make an emergency landing at Los Angeles International Airport since they had the longest runway to attempt such a landing and a full compliment of emergency ground personnel and equipment to handle whatever would happen to the plane and its passengers upon landing.

Over the course of the several hours the plane was in its holding pattern burning off the excess fuel, a plethora of aviation specialists were giving their insight as to the possible scenarios in making the emergency landing. The consensus seemed to be that when the plane landed and the malfunctioning front landing gear hit the runway, it would most likely snap off leaving the plane to skid to a stop wi! th the
front part of the plane on its belly. The other real possibility was that because the wheels were locked down at a 90-degree angle, once the front landing gear hit the runway, the plane would jerk hard to the left and possibly flip over. Either way, it was going to be a very dangerous and perilous time when they finally brought this huge Airbus down on the runway.

Around 9:30 p.m. EDT it was time for the emergency landing of Jet Blue flight 292 at LAX. A whole assortment of emergency and rescue equipment was on hand along with a well-trained group of over 100 brave men and women who train just for these incidents were standing by prepared for whatever may happen. The pilot slowly brought the plane down on the runway on the main landing gears under the wings, keeping the nose of the plane up as long as possible. Finally, the moment came to lower the nose down onto the crippled landing gear.

Instead of the landing gear snapping off as many experts predicted, plumes! of smoke
came from the tires as they were literally burning up from the friction of being at a 90-degree angle to the direction the plane was heading. With the plane maintaining a perfectly straight line, the tires burned up and the plane was literally rolling down the runway on the metal landing gear that once held the tires in place. With sparks flying for hundreds of yards, the plane finally came to a complete stop in tact with everyone on board safe. It was a perfect landing and the best outcome anyone could have prayed for! The pilot and cockpit crew did a masterful job. No doubt the hand of God was on that plane and those inside.

Throughout this human drama, I thought about the passengers on board this ill-fated flight. One of the unique features of Jet Blue Airlines is that every seat has a miniature television that is hooked into a satellite system so they can watch real time cable programming. In interviews with some passengers after they reached the ground, it was lea! rned that
many on board were actually watching the MSNBC coverage of what was happening to their plane. It must have been surreal to be on board this distressed plane, watching the news coverage of what was actually happening to you. So the crew on board and the passengers were fully aware of what was going on, what the experts were saying about the different scenarios that could unfold when they made their emergency landing, and no doubt, death had to be a very real issue each one was contemplating.

One of the points I make often is the fact that tomorrow is promised to none of us. Each day is truly a gift from God. The reality is those people who boarded that flight in Burbank had no other thought other than in a few hours they would be in New York City. People wake up every day and get in their cars, go through their normal daily routines, thinking about what they have to do next, making plans for tomorrow, simply living life. For some, they never get to that next meeting or
appointment, for some, there is no tomorrow.

Life is fragile my friend. It is over before we ever expect it to be. That is why we not only need to live each day to its fullest, but make sure that each day we are living for the Lord. When our brief journey through life is over, the only things that will matter for all eternity are those things we did for the Kingdom. Our purpose in this life is to serve and glorify Him. That is why each day we must focus on making sure that in the midst of living our life, we fulfill our purpose by finding ways to serve the Lord throughout the day.

I love you and care about you so much. Events like Jet Blue flight 292 drive home the reality of how fragile life is, how quick it can be over. I imagine that there were lots of people praying on that airplane Wednesday. Probably people praying that hadn’t prayed in a long time. I hope there was someone bold enough during those long, tense hours while those people were waiting to possib! ly die,
that stood up and shared with the passengers and crew on board that death is not the end and that if they would make the decision to accept Christ into their hearts and life by faith, no matter what happened to that plane they would be in His loving arms for all eternity.

My friend, God’s desire is that none be lost, that all come to repentance. As you read these words today I want to ask you if you have the assurance this moment that if you died today you would be forever with Jesus. If you don’t have that assurance, if you aren’t 100% certain that when you die you will be forever with the Lord, now, this moment, you can settle that issue for all eternity. If you would like to accept Jesus Christ into your heart and life by faith, then pray right now, ask God to open your heart, and go to this link: https://liveprayer.com/salvation-plan.cfm Read the words, pray the prayer, and never doubt again where your eternal home will be!

In closing, let me ask you the! question
I posed at the beginning. What do you do while you are waiting to possibly die? The reality is, we are ALL waiting to die. Death is an inevitable part of this journey called life. That is why what we do each day is so important. If you don’t know Jesus as your Savior, then I would encourage you to pray and seek Him out. He loves you, He died for you, and He wants to have an intimate, personal, and everlasting relationship with you. If you do know Christ as your Savior, then let me encourage you to get busy serving Him. That is what God has called us to do. I know while I am waiting to die, I am doing my best each day to share the Truth of God’s Word and the hope and love of Jesus Christ with the hurting and lost in this world. What are you doing?”

…..and let the church say…AMEN!!!!!!!

Suffering the loss of a baby!!!

Leave a comment

(Genesis 33:5, Psalm 127:3, Proverbs 17:6, Deuteronomy 6:7)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help me to never forget how each life is from You and precious. In this culture that puts little value on a human life, let ME stand for You and the fact ALL LIFE IS FROM GOD! May I find courage and strength to never waiver or fail to speak up for this most precious of all gifts! In the name of Jesus I pray. AMEN!!!

One of the difficult things I deal with each day here at Liveprayer, are parents who have suffered the loss of their baby due to a miscarriage. Sadly, 15-20% of known pregnancies end in a miscarriage, so this is an issue that touches most families and something many who are reading this today have experienced. Of course the question each one who has lost a baby like this asks is why?

There are simply some things in this life we will never know the answer to. Why God chooses to allow a baby to live only a few short weeks or someone to live to! 90, is
something only He knows. This is another classic example of the fact tomorrow is promised to none of us, regardless how old you are, and each day is a gift from God. The one thing we do know is that a baby who is lost while in its mother’s womb is forever with Jesus!

The greatest joy for any parent is to know that their child will spend all eternity with the Lord. A baby in the womb who has not had the opportunity to mature to the point of understanding sin and making a choice of faith to accept or reject Jesus is forever with the Lord due to His grace. As devastating as losing a baby is, I pray today that the assurance your child will be forever with the Lord comforts those moms and dads who have suffered this great loss in their life. I also pray that the Lord will help you heal and bless you with many more children in the future. He loves you!

While death is a sad part of this human experience we all have to deal with throughout our journey and one day face ou! rselves,
today I also want to deal with the other end of that spectrum, when life begins. One of the great joys I have each day is receiving emails from people excited that they are going to have a child. It is one of those special moments in a person’s life that crescendos less than a year later with the birth of that precious baby. It has been an honor and privilege to pray for so many babies still in the womb and in a few months receive a picture of one of those babies that is truly a gift from God.

Having a child is one of the greatest responsibilities a person has during this lifetime. Raising that child is without a doubt the most important ministry a parent will ever have. The Bible claims in 1 Timothy 5:8 that if you don’t take care of your relatives, especially those in your family you have denied the faith and are worse than an infidel or unbeliever. There are no exceptions to this verse. It doesn’t say, unless you are a pastor. It doesn’t say, unless you are the head! of a
major company. It doesn’t say, unless you are too busy helping other people. The Word of God is clear that the number one responsibility of a parent is to your family and EVERYTHING else in your life is secondary.

*I want every parent to take a moment right now, pray, and ask God if your spouse and children are truly the number one priority in your life after your relationship with Christ. If not, NOW is the time to make whatever changes that need to be made to insure they are!

For every man and woman who is reading this today that is expecting a child, I want to encourage you to start praying over your child even know while that baby is still in the womb. Pray health over your baby. Pray protection over your baby. Pray God’s blessings over your baby. Pray that your baby will have a heart that yearns for Jesus. Even after that baby is born, you need to be praying over your baby every day. God has entrusted this life into your care. Prayer demonstrates our depende! nce upon
God. Never in your life will you be more tested and more dependent upon the Lord than in raising your child.

As your child begins to get older, teaching that child how to pray, reading the Word of God to your child, making sure your child is in church every week, are all ways to follow God’s Word and raise that child in the admonition of the Lord. GOD HAS GIVEN YOU THE RESPONSIBILITY OF RAISING YOUR CHILD IN THE FAITH AND WILL HOLD YOU ACCOUNTABLE!!!

The Bible tells us in Proverbs 22:6, “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” *The greatest thing you will ever do for your child is to lay a foundation of faith in Christ and God’s Word in their life!

Listen moms and dads. As your child gets older they will begin to make their own decisions. At some point, you won’t be able to make their choices for them. That is why laying that foundation of faith is so critical. Let me make sure you understand something. You are N! OT
responsible for the decisions they make. Just like your mother and father were not responsible for the decisions you made, you are not responsible for the decisions your children will make.

That is why those early years are so critical, since what they learn in those early years will help to shape the choices they make as they get older. Know that even if they turn from the Lord at some point, when times get difficult it is that spiritual foundation you helped lay in their life that will sustain them. Just like the prodigal son made some horrible decisions, when he hit rock bottom he knew to “go home” to his father.

I know that many of you are in tears today because you so desperately want a child and for reasons only God knows, you have not been able to conceive. Why your prayers have not been answered is something only God knows for certain, but let me encourage you to continue to pray for a child, knowing that with God ALL things are possible.

We have to! o many
testimonies both from God’s Word and from so many people of how God allowed them to conceive later in life after many years of not having any children. Never forget that God may have a special calling on your life to be a mom or dad to a child by adoption. There are so many children who have been given up for adoption who need Godly parents, and God may be calling you to have a child by adoption.

I love you and care about you so much. For those who have suffered the pain of a miscarriage, I pray today that the Lord will be with you in a special way and that He will soon bless you with a child. There is nothing more exciting in life than finding out that you are going to have a child, going through those months of preparing for the birth of your child, and then that incredible day you will never forget as long as you live when your baby is born.

Of course, that is also the start of the most important job you will ever have in this life, raising your child. Let me ! close
today with a special prayer of blessing for your baby, whether this baby is still in the womb or recently born, and for you to be the Godly parents God has called you to be.

“Father, I pray today for those who have suffered the pain of having a miscarriage. Dear Lord, help them to heal and give them peace in knowing their baby is in Heaven, forever with you! Today, I pray for those precious babies who are still in the womb. I pray oh Lord that you will touch these precious lives and make their bodies healthy, their minds sharp, and their hearts tender towards the Lord. I pray oh Lord that you will bring forth these precious babies from the womb in your perfect timing and that these babies will grow and mature into mighty men and women of God should Jesus tarry in His return. For those babies and children, I pray oh Lord that you will protect them from the evils of this dark world. I pray oh Lord that they will be raised in the admonition of the Lord, in the strength of! your
Word, and become great men and women of God to lead your people in these last days. Father, I lift up the moms and dads of these children. Give them your strength, your wisdom, your discernment as they raise their children in the ways of the Lord. I pray oh Lord that you will guide them and help them to be the Godly moms and dads to their children you have called them to be. Bless their homes oh Lord, let the Spirit of the living God be present and make their homes and lives great beacons of light in this lost and dying world. I pray blessings on these babies and children, blessings on these moms and dads in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

A ram in the bush!!!

(I Corinthians 15:57)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, YOU are my provider. You know my daily needs. You promised to care what I need each day for life….food, shelter, clothing. I put my trust in You. You own the cattle on a thousand hills, and I come to You today to Thank You for providing for my needs in the past, and knowing my needs today. Today, I come to you, asking You to meet those needs as I glorify You for Your provision. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!!!

Blessings my friend, I pray all is well with you and your family. Know that you and your family are in my prayers ever day!!! Today, I need your help!!! I am asking everyone to pray and GIVE the most generous gift you can!!!

For the 20 years Liveprayer has been online, we have always had a difficult time covering our basic ministry operations during the summer months of June, July, and August. It is traditionally a time for many families to go on vacation. It is also a time o! f the
year when many people are outside enjoying the nice weather and often living a more relaxed lifestyle.

As we prepare to celebrate the 20 yr anniversary of Liveprayer at the end of August, we are getting more prayer requests than ever before. With the better percentage of the last 2 generations having never been to church, as people hit those difficult times in life we all face along this journey, they are reaching out as they look for REAL hope and REAL answers!!!

Satan is a liar and loser!!! I have had a front row seat during the past 20 years of Liveprayer.com and 15 years of the Liveprayer TV program to watch Almighty God work in the lives of people, meeting their needs and often performing miracles!!!

We just covered the balance of our May shortfall a couple of days ago. That means as we head into the final 11 days of June, we have to bring in the $55,000 we require for our basic June ministry operations.

$8,000 of that budget is required IMMEDI! ATELY!!!
Another $16,000 is required by Friday!!! That leaves us the final 9 days of the month to cover as much of the remaining $31,000 as we can!!!

I AM STANDING IN FAITH AS I HAVE FAITHFULLY DONE EVERY DAY FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS, ASKING GOD TO MOVE ON THE HEART OF ONE OF OUR LIVEPRAYER FAMILY MEMBERS WHO THE LORD HAS BLESSED TO HELP ME TODAY WITH A SPECIAL ONE-TIME GIFT OF THE $8,000 WE REQUIRE IMMEDIATELY!!!

Also, be praying. Over the next 73 days which takes us to the end of August, we require $55,000 for our basic June, July, and August ministry operations for a total of $165,000!!! OUR GOD IS ABLE!!!

OUR GOD IS FAITHFUL!!! I am humbled by dear friends like you have enabled us to keep marching forward, taking His Truth to this lost nation and world while being here to pray for people in their hour of need. Most important however, is seeing lost souls every week coming to faith in Jesus Christ..over 1.4 million that we know of since Liveprayer was birthed in
1999!!!

It has been YOUR love, YOUR prayers, and YOUR generous sacrifices over the years that has made Liveprayer available for tens of millions of people worldwide over the past two decades. You will never know my gratitude for your faithfulness since Liveprayer has only been possible because of friends like YOU!!!

I am asking every person reading these words today, to sit down, pray, and as the Bible instructs, “give according to your ability to give!!!!” I need everyone to pray and everyone to give a special gift to help Liveprayer whether it is $10, $20, $50, $100, $1,000, or more!!!

Many times over 2 decades of ministry, Liveprayer has been in a place where we needed a large gift to keep our work moving forward. Once it was $30,000, several times $50,000, once $80,000, and once even $100,000. God always has a ram in the bush, and each time moved on the heart of one of our friends in the Liveprayer family who He had blessed and enabled to make such a
sacrifice!!!

WILL YOU HELP ME?

WILL YOU BE THAT RAM IN THE BUSH TODAY???????

By the way, our ministry accounts are at Wells Fargo, so if it is not an inconvenience, get hold of me (bkeller@liveprayer.com) and I can get you the information you need for the quickest way to get the funds into our account.
