***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: You might have heard we had a “mass gun killing” this week, or you probably didn’t! A gunman at the Coors plant in Milwaukee killed 5 people and himself. This is an event that would normally garner 24/7 coverage for days on all of the cable networks received some “BREAKING NEWS” reports in the immediate aftermath, but that was it. No coverage of the press conferences to update the situation. Not even the typical hysterical anti-gun commentary that follows these events. Why? Well, the gunman was a 50 something black man who had worked at the Coors plant for many years had been fired earlier that day. He returned later in the day and randomly shot and killed 5 people at the plant before turning the gun on himself. It has been reported that he had felt the object of racism during his time of employment. Since it was a work place v! iolent event, the
gunman was an older black man and not a MAGA hat wearing white man that would fit the description of a white supremacist, crickets from the media. Pray for the families who lost loved one and healing for those injured. Sadly, this is simply an example of how the media will only report on things that advance their own political narrative. Events that occur each day are simply used to shape and focus that narrative.

Don’t forget to take some time today to say “thank you” to God!!!

You cannot turn on the news or pick up the newspaper without being bombarded by all of the problems and evil that exists in our world. Each day you are confronted by family members, friends, those you work ! with or go to school with,
that are hurting and going thru a difficult time in their life. 99% or better of the over 40,000 prayer requests that come into Liveprayer every single day are people who are in pain, fighting the battles everyone fights during the course of their life. The fact is, we are all dealing with problems every day, that is simply part of life.

The worst thing that can happen is when we allow our problems to overwhelm us to the point we forget to be thankful to God. Never forget, no matter what your problems may be today, without God you would have no hope. He is your source of strength when you feel like you can’t go on. He is your source of encouragement when you don’t see any answers. He is your source of hope that tomorrow will be better than today. It is God who loves you when nobody else does, and it is God who will never leave you when everyone else has. In the midst of whatever your battles may be today, don’t forget to simply say, “Thank you God!”

I know this m! essage
today may seem very elementary, but it is amazing how when we are under the pressures of daily life, we can often forget the most basic truths. No matter what may be going on in our lives, God deserves our thanks because of who He is. He is God! He is the Creator of the heavens and earth. He is OUR CREATOR! He loves us unconditionally and cares about us so much. He has given us so many wonderful and special promises in His Word that we can count on. So never let the cares of this brief life keep you from taking the time each day to thank Him.

I realize today as you read this, you may be facing a serious health issue, or your marriage may be in trouble, or you are dealing with a huge financial problem, or you need a job, or someone you love has recently died, or you are battling with some sort of addiction, or a myriad of other problems. It doesn’t matter what your problems may be. Take a few minutes right now, forget about your problems, and simply focus on God. Now, s! ay THANK
YOU GOD! Say it again. Again. Again. Tell God you love Him. Tell God you worship and adore Him. Forget about everything else for a few moments and simply concentrate on God and thank Him!!!

Listen, thanking God is not going to make all of your problems go away. What it will do is bring joy to your heart, peace into your life, and give you a renewed sense of hope as you face the day to day trials life may bring your way. Facing your problems, dealing with your problems become 100 times easier. You get blessed when you thank God! By getting so wrapped up in your problems and not taking the time to thank God you are missing blessings.

I love you and care about you so much. I am guilty so often of not taking the time I should each day to simply stop what I am doing and just spend some time thanking God. It is so easy to focus on what is wrong with our life, that we often forget how much is right with our life. We get so bound by our problems that we forget the simple! act of
saying thank you to God. Without Him, there would be no answers, no solutions to our problems and this life would have no purpose and be meaningless and hopeless.

I will be praying for you today. Do me a favor. No, do yourself a favor. Stop whatever you are doing right now. Take the next 3 minutes. That is 180 seconds. Use those 3 minutes to do nothing else but say thank you to God. Thank Him for His love. Thank Him for all the wonderful blessings He bestows on you each day. Thank Him for caring about you. Thank Him for all that He does for you each day. I can assure you that you have MUCH TO BE THANKFUL FOR! Take the next 3 minutes and spend it thanking God.

The Bible only gives us a brief glimpse of what our eternal existence will be like. One thing we know is that we will be worshipping God our Creator. Now is a good time to start doing that . Each day, we must take time out of our busy lives and simply spend it thanking God. We will always have problems in th! is life.

That is simply a fact of living in this dark and evil world where so many people live their lives in rebellion to God. But the Bible tells us that when this brief journey is over, “There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Make sure that no matter what your problems may be, that you never forget to take the time each day to say thank you to God!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

What would a President Bernie “Fidel” Sanders mean to Christians?

(Genesis 1:27)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help me to get through this day and the challenges that I will be facing today. Guide me, strengthen me, and give me wisdom as I make choices throughout this day. Please watch over my family and those I love in this world, and keep them safe. I love You Lord, and depend upon You each moment of each day. Bless me as I go through the day, living my life for Your glory. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: What would a President Bernie “Fidel” Sanders mean to Christians? Two words, NOT GOOD! It would be similar to the 8 years under President Obama. There would be hostility towards Christians and the administration would be working against everything followers of Christ believe in. Like President Obama, a President Sanders would be very anti-Israel, even hinting at moving the US Embassy from the capital of Jerusalem back to Tel Aviv. So you understand, while Sanders is a! Jew by
birth, he has been a non-practicing Jew during his adult life and his comments on faith and religion clearly show he is an atheist as are virtually all who hold Marxist, Socialist, Communists beliefs. A President Sanders would embrace and show great favor towards the Palestinians, despite their stated goal and actions to destroy the state of Israel and wipe it off the face of the earth. A President Sanders would fight to destroy all Christian liberties, forcing us to abandoned our faith beliefs in daily life. As a staunch advocate for the killing innocent babies his entire political career, Planned Parenthood and the baby killing industry would once again have a great friend in the White House as they did during the 8 years under President Obama. A President Sanders would also advocate for and do all he could to support sexual perversion of every kind and the continued destruction of God’s plan for marriage and the family. Bottom line, a President Sanders would be an enemy! of the
people of Christ and do everything in his power to oppose the truth of God’s Word on every issue. Remember, God is the one who puts men in power and takes men out of power. If Senator Sanders survives the all-out attempts by the Democratic Party establishment to take him out and he ends up being their nominee, years ago you could legitimately look at a Nixonesque blowout of 49 states due to Sander’s radical political ideology. However, in 2020, those who oppose the current President would literally vote for satan, so if Sanders is the nominee he will carry the traditional Democratic states in the electoral college and the Presidency will once again come down to a handful of states.

In honor ! of Black History Month, I
want to share this special Devotional. Racism is not something unique to the black/white issues we have here in the United States. Those who live in other countries or who have spent time in other nations around the world, know all too well that racism is not exclusive to the United States and is sadly alive and well in most places today. Dividing people, due to whatever differences there may be, has been around from the very beginning of time and is one of satan’s most powerful weapons.

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

MY FRIEND, THERE IS ONLY O! NE RACE.
THERE IS NO WHITE RACE, OR BLACK RACE, OR BROWN RACE, OR YELLOW RACE, OR RED RACE, NO, THERE IS ONLY ONE RACE…THE HUMAN RACE!!! ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL BY GOD OUR CREATOR!!!

I pray that as you read these words, you will ask God what role you can play in helping to tear down the walls of division. I am so thankful that Liveprayer brings together over 2.5 million people worldwide every day, bound only by the love of Jesus Christ. People of every color, from most every nation, from ages 12 to 96, from every walk of life, rich and poor, and FROM EVERY CHRISTIAN DENOMINATION AND CHURCH GROUP. They are all simply looking for the hope we all need in this life, the hope that can only come from knowing Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

Six words that can make all the difference in your life this very moment!!!

Leave a comment

(Mark 10:27)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, please help me to use the opportunities to serve You that are available as I go through each day. By grace I know Your love, and peace, and hope, and have a responsibility to share that with others. So many are searching for what I have, give me the boldness and courage to not be shy about helping them find Your hope and love as I have. Use me for Your glory oh Lord. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!!!

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: Are Kanye West and Justin Bieber for real about being a Christian? Only God knows our hearts and if only He knows if these two men are truly saved. However, like everyone we are able to use our discernment to judge their words and deeds…as we are commanded to do! It is reasonable to question the sincerity of someone’s faith who has been so high profile in living a life clearly in rebellion to God and His Word. Knowing human nature, my guess is that many in the early ! church were
questioning the sincerity of Paul’s faith. After all it wasn’t much earlier he had been a great persecutor of the early church, so such questions were normal AND LEGITIMATE! As for Kanye and Justin, I pray for them daily and pray they truly are serious about being their Christian faith. When such high profile people become so vocal, they are held to a ridiculous standard and it only takes one or two bad decisions for a society hoping for them to fall to pounce and declare them as fakes, hypocrites. My Bible says we ALL sin and come short of the glory of God. As committed as Kanye and Justin may be, they will stumble along the way…AS WE ALL DO AT TIMES! It doesn’t mean they are faking it, only that they are human. The key is when they do, do we Christians join the world in lambasting them? My gut tells me they are both serious about their faith. Both of getting incredible grief from the world for their stand. Bieber comes from a Christian home and still has close tie! s to his
family. West grew up in the church, so it is not foreign to him. Again, only God knows their hearts, but based on their words and deeds in recent months I find it very refreshing to see these two making a splash for Christ in the culture. We abandoned the culture and it is virtually impossible to get back on that stage. These two are there, people are watching, and no doubt God is using their efforts to impact lives and even save souls. So join me and pray for them both, that the Lord to surround them with strong Believers so they can continue to grow, and for HIS favor as they take the hope of Christ to this lost world in the unique way God has called them to be His witness at this moment in human history. By the way, we are ALL given unique ways and opportunities to serve the Lord and God is challenging each one of us to be bold and visible about our faith!

There are many great and precious promises in the Bible. In the Book of John Chapters 14, 15, and 16 we are told by the Lord that God will give us what we ask for in the name of Jesus. In Matthew Chapter 7 we are told, “ask, and it shall be given you.” The 37th Psalm tells us that He will give us the “desires of our heart.”

Today, I want to give you a promise in the Bible that will literally transform your life. They are six words spoken by Jesus that can make all the difference in your life this very moment. Individually, they are just six common words but put together as they were by our Lord, they give us one of the greatest promises we have in God’s Word. This is YOUR promise today!

“All things are possible with God.” (Mark 10:27)

Jesus didn’t say some things . . . He didn’t say a ! few things . . . He didn’t say a
couple of things . . . He didn’t say selected things . . . He didn’t say certain things . . . HE SAID ALL THINGS!!!!

That means if you are sick in your body, God can heal you! That means if you need a financial miracle, God is your source! That means if your marriage is in trouble, God can restore it! That means is you need a job, God can open the doors for employment!

That means if you are in some form of bondage, God can set you free! That means if your children are away from God, God can bring them home! That means if you have lost a loved one, God can ease the pain! No matter what your need is today, God is able to meet that need!

YOUR promise today is six words from Jesus, “ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD!!!”

I want you to take a moment right now and pray about the most important thing you need from God today. There is not one person who is reading this that doesn’t need something from God. If you could ask God for anything, anything ! at all, what would
it be? The fact is, you CAN ask God for anything. You have been told in His Word to ask for anything, so now it is time.

I want you to focus on the one thing that you want from God and pray this simple prayer. “Dear God, I know that your Word is true and I believe today that all things are possible with You. I want (insert here the one thing you want from God). In Jesus name. Amen!”

I love you and care about you so much. Now is the time to make your faith real and believe God’s Word. There is nothing wrong in your life today that God can’t fix. I want you to know that I will be standing in agreement with you for the one thing that you have asked God for today. I am believing with you for that need you prayed for to be met.

Remember God’s promise for you today, “ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD!!!”

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

The most accurate description of who I TRY to be each day and PRAY to be each day!!!

(Matthew 5:11,12, 1 Peter 4:16)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, I come to You asking for Your blessings today, and that You make me a blessing today. Thank You for Your love, grace, provision, and blessings. May I never take Your goodness for granted. Let me share that love and grace with all who I am with today and be a light for You! In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: Is the coronavirus God’s warning to the world? What started in a China, exactly how still to be determined, we are a LONG way from this global threat being anything close to a pandemic taking tens of millions of lives around the world. Having said that, God created man to life forever, to never die. He also created man’s environment in perfection. There were no germs, diseases, sicknesses to contend with. When men chose to sin, it not only brought physical and spiritual death into the picture, but destroyed the perfect environment man was living! in. So this
coronavirus is a byproduct of the fallen state men is living in. Like SARS in 2003, the ebola virus outbreak 7 years ago, this is the latest strain of a virus that currently there is no known cure for. It clearly is a cause for concern as it is spreading to nations around the world with over 80,000 known cases and over 2,700 deaths. Sadly, it is being used as a political football as all issues end up being at some point. It is NOT a major problem in the United States at this moment, but very easily could be in the coming weeks and months. As in China where it originated, it would preclude all kinds normal daily activities such as children going to school, going to see a movie, attending sporting events, and basic travel. These restrictions would also have a major effect on the economy, even more than we are currently dealing with. For Christians, it would also affect such a basic activity like going to church services. For now, PRAY for the Lord to give gifted medical profes! sionals
the wisdom to come up with a vaccine. Pray for world leaders to make wise decisions to restrict the spread of this virus. Pray for the sick to be healed and the family of those who have lost their lives to know God’s strength and comfort in the midst of their loss. Back to the initial question. While the coronavirus is simply a byproduct of our fallen nature like all sicknesses and diseases are, I believe it is also a reminder that we are frail beings, death is imminent for all of us, and we know from Scripture there will come a day when God will judge this fallen world. WE SHOULD ALWAYS SEE SUCH EVENTS AS A REMINDER OF OUR SIN AND REBELLION AND USE THEM AS OPPORTUNITIES TO TURN TO OUR FAITH AND THE LORD EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY DAY!!!

“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.” Matthew 5:11,12

Pastor Bill, I saw this quote and immediately thought of you and your ministry. God bless you for taking a stand against evil and for our Lord in this present age. You are in inspiration to all Believers!!!

“Someone, then, must undertake the ungracious task of probing and laying bare the evils of the age; for men must not be allowed to congratulate themselves that all is well. If others will not, he will. If others shrink from the obloquy of such a work, he will not. He loves the age too well; he loves his nation too well; he loves his fellow-men too well. They may upbraid him; they may call him a misanthropist, or a prophet of evil; they may ascribe his warnings to the worst of motives, ! such as
pride, or arrogance, or self-esteem, or malice, or envy; but he will give no heed to these unjust insinuations. He will prefer being thus misunderstood and maligned, to allowing men to precipitate themselves upon a ruin which they see not. Rather than that they should perish, he will allow his own good name to be spoken against. He will risk everything, even the hatred of brethren, rather than withhold the warning.” -Horatius Bonar (December 19, 1808 – May 31, 1889)

I am honored that this dear friend of the ministry who sent the above quote, would even think of me in these terms. Bonar was a Scottish churchman, poet, and hymn writer who lived a long and faithful life of service to our Lord. As I read the words he penned, it was humbling, since I could not think of a better epitaph when my work here is over and I am on to my eternal rest. It is the most accurate description of who I TRY to be each day and PRAY to be each day!

Today is one of those rare days in the! last 20
years, 5 months, 26 days (7,484 days) of writing the Liveprayer Daily Devotional. I am in a very special, reflective place, and as I often do want to bare my heart to my dear friends who share this journey with me. As I say often, it is no accident or coincidence that God has allowed our lives to cross paths. Of the 7 billion on the planet, only God could have orchestrated our lives coming together for many different reasons, but one of those is to take our stand for Christ and His Truth at this very moment in human history!

Please pray for the Holy Spirit to open your heart as I share mine with you today in no particular order. We are of the same Spirit and why I want you to not just read the words I share, but FEEL the words I share!!!

…I am most blessed among men to be able to wake up each day over these past 28 years of serving the Lord, especially the last 20+ years of Liveprayer.com and nearly 17 years of the Liveprayer TV program. As the great prayer war! rior E.M.
Bounds said, “Talking to men for God is a great thing, but talking to God for men is greater still!”

…I am in awe of God since I could have never imagined how God would use my life. At the time Liveprayer.com began I didn’t even own a computer, yet over these years tens of millions of lives have been impacted, over 170 million emails for prayers responded to, we have an archive of just over 17 million praise reports, and now over 1.6 million souls we know of have come to faith in Jesus. I did NOTHING but surrender my life completely to the Lord and He simply used my as His vessel!

…I am thankful daily for my dear friends who have faithfully prayed for me and those who have in many cases made great sacrifices for the Lord’s work here at Liveprayer. I never forget for a day that nothing I do is possible without the prayers and support of my dear friends in the Liveprayer family.

…My heart breaks daily as I see the tens of thousands of people daily who c! ome to
Liveprayer for prayer. So many hurting people, so many needs. Only a great and mighty God is able to give people the strength to live through their problems while imparting His peace and joy to them as He leads them to their answers.

…I HATE satan for how he purposely destroys lives and helps lead people’s souls to hell!

…Having lived long enough to remember when this nation mostly respected God and Biblical Truth, I can’t believe in my short life how far from our Creator and His Truth we have fallen. I fight daily to see this nation turn back to God and His Truth, yet so often feel like that fight is in vain.

…The “Church of Jesus Christ” has become weak and virtually useless for the most part in this battle for souls and the soul of our nation. The vast majority of churches are exactly like the 7 churches in Revelation. Sadly, it will only be when God’s ultimate judgment is meted out upon this nation that the church under great persecution will once! again be
the church.

…I praise God daily for those few churches who have not compromised the Truth, led by a shrinking minority of pastors who are true shepherds as described in John 10, and the remnant that exists today who won’t bow their knee to baal! This small minority of true followers of Christ is all that is holding this nation from seeing God’s ultimate wrath and judgment poured out for our sins, wickedness, and rebellion to God!

…I see so much so clear long before it actually happens. It is a wonderful gift from God, but a curse since few others see or understand what I am telling them and many simply write me off as another “religious nut.” Sadly, when it is too late, I am vindicated though I take little comfort or pleasure in “being right.”

…Few people will ever know or understand the personal price I have paid over these last 28 years. I have literally given my life to the Lord’s work, surrendering my life and the things of this world for His serv! ice. I am
comforted by the words of Jesus when he said, “Whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.”

…I despise having to raise money. I started the ministry 28 years ago with nothing personally, and today still have nothing personally. This has NEVER been about money for me, but MINISTRY. All I have ever asked God for was not personal wealth, but the funds required to do His work as each new month dawns.

…I have always told people to take care of their family first, to make sure they have food on the table and their bills covered before they ever send a dime to Liveprayer.

…From day one, I have refused to play the games most churches and all of the major ministries play in order to raise money. I have seen every fundraising gimmick known to man and find them offensive and refuse to engage in those types of games. I have never or will ever exploit people by LYING to them how they can have great wealth or other financial benefits if they simply send money ! to
Liveprayer as the perverted “prosperity gospel” so many preach falsely promise.

…Many in the “mainstream Christian world” don’t even know about Liveprayer since I won’t play ball which always involves raising money. I simply don’t understand why churches and ministries with millions in real estate and other assets, continue to ask people for more. The heads of many of these ministries live in multi-million homes, often more than one, fly around in private jets, take in hundreds of thousands of dollars annually in personal income, yet still ask for more?

…Unlike the churches and major ministries, Liveprayer purposely reaches out to lost and hurting people OUTSIDE of the four walls of the church. Apx. 40% of those who get the Daily Devotional and 60% of those who view the TV program are NOT Christians. I am well aware that by going on the Christian networks, playing ball with other major ministries, we could raise virtually an unlimited amount of money each yea! r.
However, I am more worried about ministering to those the church and ministries have abandoned because they aren’t their “target audience to raise money from” and seeing the lost won to Jesus!

…I am amazed at how we do so much with so little. All of the ministry we provide to millions worldwide every day costs us just over $1,800 a day. I am proud that right at .93 cents of every dollar goes directly to ministering to people, while most churches and ministries eat up 40%, 50%, even more in overhead and fundraising costs.

…Less than 1/4 of 1% of the people we reach online and on TV EVER send a dime to Liveprayer. I pray daily that the Lord will move on the hearts of those who God has ministered to and blessed through Liveprayer will make the sacrifice to help me with a gift that enables us to minister to others who would not hear about the love of Christ otherwise. It has always been the “few who have fed the many.”

…When I ask God for the “desires of ! my
heart,” I ask Him to send one person who could help me with a special gift of $12 million dollars! Within one year we would not just lead over a million plus souls to faith in Jesus, but could make an impact on the spiritual state of this nation like nobody would believe by expanding our existing platform 15 fold creating a massive force of light the world would not be able to ignore or fight!!! For context, this is what a local church with only 3000 members would spend on a building!

I love and care about you so much! Thank you for taking the time to pray and feel my words today. I COULD NOT DO WHAT I DO EACH DAY WITHOUT YOUR LOVE, PRAYERS, AND GENEROUS SACRIFICES!!!

As I do daily, I never hold back as I share with you God’s Truth on the issues of the day as well as my personal thoughts and feelings. Even though I speak daily to a massive worldwide audience online and tens of thousands people 5 nights a week on the TV program, I try to speak to the heart of eac! h person
I am able to reach.

Please know that you and your family are in my prayers. I pray daily for God’s protection, for His provision, and for His blessings to be upon you as together we press forward towards the prize, bringing hope to the hurting, salvation through faith in Christ to the lost, and use this platform the Lord has built to lead our nation back to the Almighty and His Truth!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

(Psalms 68:19; Matthew 6:33)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, give me a passion, a hunger for Your Word. Let me wake up each day, excited what You will show me that day from that precious Word of God. Help me Lord each day to not just be a reader of the Word, but a DOER of the Word. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!!!

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: I have contended for the 2+ decades Liveprayer has been online that the number one social problem we have in our society is the lack of a legitimate mental health infrastructure. Just in the past few days, news is out that the Trump administration wants to end the 55-year ban on Medicaid funding for institutional care. Currently, fewer than 40,000 people are in state mental hospitals. Due to lack the of Medicaid funding, states have a financial incentive to keep as few people as possible in state mental health care facilities. How sick is our culture when there is overwhelming support for the public ! to pay to
slaughter innocent babies, yet little will to fund the care of people who have legitimate mental health issues! Instead of putting in prison “doctors” who kill babies for a living, we are turned our city, county, state, and federal jails into de facto mental health facilities! Let me leave you with something a mental health professional with over 40 years on the front lines told me. The next time you are standing in the line at your grocery store with 9 other people, understand 2 of those people have ZERO business being out in public without supervision!

Tithing. People ask if tithing is still required since that was in the Old Testament. Let me deal with that issue today. ALL we have is ! from God, He has simply
given us stewardship over whatever resources we have during our brief journey through this life. GOD DOESN’T NEED OUR MONEY!

We give to God as an act of worship. We give to God as an act of obedience. We give to give as an act of sacrifice. When you read the Bible, the giving of the tenth or “tithe” in the Old Testament was part of the Old Treatment Law. We are no longer under the Old Testament Law. 100%, not 10% of everything we have belongs to God.

So when we give, we are simply giving back to God what is His already out of obedience and as an act of sacrifice and worship!!!

I feel like a member of the mafia talking to the Feds about the secrets of the “family business.” For over 246 months I have never held back the truth from you and won’t start today. I get inundated every day with emails from people asking me to explain why they gave a certain amount of money to some ministry they saw on television who preached a message on how to get out of debt.
!

They
did what they were told (gave them $$$$) and they are still in debt!!!

Others were told to plant a seed and all their financial problems would be solved. They planted the seed (sent them $$$) but still have the same financial problems. Still others were told to take a stand of faith for their child who was running from God. They took a stand (sent in $$$) and their child is still on drugs and running from God.

People are confused, mad at God, feel like they don’t have enough faith because they do exactly what they are told, send in $$$, yet nothing changes!

I have shared with you in the past messages on Biblical giving, on giving without guilt, and how to give by faith. It is not just those on TV and radio who pervert God’s Word to get people to give, but many churches also manipulate their people by taking passages and stories in the Bible totally out of context in order to induce people to give. Today, I want to expose some of the spiritual fraud that is ! being
committed to drive giving, and once again share with you the Biblical reasons and ways to give.

After nearly 30 years in the ministry, 7 of those years heavily involved in the Christian television world, I think I have seen about very game, trick, and gimmick there is to get people to give. People who use a certain Psalm to “open up God’s blessings over your finances,” and if they use say Psalm 68 verse 19, then tell you to write a check for $68.19 to their ministry for the next 10-12 months. Those who take some of the great accounts in the Bible where people acted on their faith in God, and then tell you the way to exercise your faith like the person in the Bible is to write them a check.

Many who share perverted teachings from the Old Testament on the various offerings to God, making the false leap that you can make a corresponding offering to God by writing a check to their ministry Some are so good they can take ANY passage of Scripture and create a message t! hat ends
with you sitting down and writing them a check.

The most egregious examples are those who preach a prosperity message. I am not talking about the REAL prosperity message of being a child of God. I am talking about prosperity strictly from a dollars and cents standpoint. Without saying it, the implication of these messages are crystal clear. The more you give the more God will bless you financially. It is a Christian Lotto mentality that those who preach this perversion are more than happy to encourage.

Those who preach this type of message will normally use themselves as the examples of God’s blessings. They will tell you how they were just like you, poor, struggling, making it from paycheck to paycheck. Then they will tell you that by trusting God and giving God everything ( what money they had ) God began to bless them. It is very misleading and a misrepresentation of God’s blessings when they tell you that if you will give them everything you have, one day you! will be
prosperous like they are. It is like the no-money down real estate infomercial guys.

They didn’t get rich by selling real estate, but by selling YOU!

The glaring hole in these false and perverted messages that tie your blessings and prosperity to how much money you give, is that you have to give to the person delivering the message! They have set themselves up as God’s trustee for your blessings and prosperity. I guess that means if you believe their message and choose to give your gift to some other work of God you won’t receive the same blessings or be as prosperous.

The other glaring hole is what if you don’t have anything to give? Does that mean you don’t qualify for God’s blessings? Does that mean you will never be prosperous? Does that mean you have no faith? I guess God doesn’t love those who follow Jesus in India, or China, or Africa, or in most places on this planet where people have little if any material possessions. I guess that means a man or w! oman in
Texas who loves Jesus and is serving Him each day but is living in a one-bedroom apartment and driving a 20-year-old car have no faith.

Here is the problem with these messages that are designed simply to raise money. They use some truth from God’s Word but pervert that truth by tying it all to how much money you give. The Bible DOES teach us to have faith in all things, including our finances. The Bible DOES teach that God will bless us and prosper us as we are faithful, and that includes being faithful with our finances. The Bible also teaches us to be wise stewards of what God has entrusted to our care.

ALL we have is from God, He has simply given us stewardship over whatever resources we have during our brief journey through this life. GOD DOESN’T NEED OUR MONEY! We give to God as an act of worship. We give to God as an act of obedience. We give to give as an act of sacrifice.

When you read the Bible, the giving of the tenth or “tithe” in the Old Testam! ent was
part of the Old Treatment Law. We are no longer under the Old Testament Law. 100%, not 10% of everything we have belongs to God. So when we give, we are simply giving back to God what is His already out of obedience and as an act of sacrifice and worship!

The Bible teaches us to give according to our ability to give. We are also taught to give cheerfully. Don’t get so legalistic in your giving that you lose the joy of giving.

I counsel people all the time to sit down with God and decide how much you can give to His work each week. Agree with God and then be faithful to give that amount. As the Holy Spirit leads you, you may be led to give over and above that amount to those works of God He lays on your heart.

There will be times God challenges you to give sacrificially, as an act of faith. Again, God will prompt your heart on those occasions and those are the opportunities in life to really take a stand of faith and trust God. YOU DON’T MAKE THE SACRIFICE T! O GIVE BY
FAITH EXPECTING ANYTHING IN RETURN. YOU MAKE THE SACRIFICE TO GIVE BY FAITH TO SIMPLY BE OBEDIENT AND TO PLEASE GOD!

I love you and care about you so much. Raising the funds to be able to do God’s work is necessary to exist. Nobody understands that reality as much as I do. Sadly, I have seen many ministries start out with the purest of hearts and end up playing every game imaginable to raise money. I have done my best to hold fast to the Biblical approach to raising the funds we need to operate Liveprayer.

When God told Moses to build the Tabernacle, when God told David to build the first Temple, they simply shared with people the need and then trusted God to move on people’s hearts to provide what was needed.

That has been the way Liveprayer has raised our funds since day 1 over 246 months ago. Share the need and trust God. Guess what, God has always provided! No false hope, no false promises, no twisting of Scriptures, no manipulation, simply share the ne! ed and
trust God to provide.

Will God bless you for giving to Liveprayer? ABSOLUTELY, just like God will bless you for giving to anyone who is truly doing His work. Never forget however, God blesses us in MANY ways, not just financially.

I will be praying for you today. Our faith is measured in MANY ways. Giving is simply one of those ways. Never allow yourself to be manipulated or made to feel guilty to give. God wants you to give with a cheerful heart as an act of worship. Giving is simply another way we can be obedient and express our love to the Lord for all He has done for us. Never forget, God knows your motives and He sees your heart.

It is never the amount you give that impresses God, it is the heart you give it with!!!

Your blessings and prosperity are NOT determined by how much money you give to some ministry, but your obedience and faithfulness to God. Your RICHEST blessings and prosperity have nothing to do with money, they are the peace, joy, a! nd
abundance of this life and the treasures you are storing up in Heaven!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

DOES ANYONE CARE ABOUT THE ETERNAL SOULS OF MEN ANY LONGER???

(John 14:6)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, as I start another week let me make sure each day I do NOT take YOU or your blessings for granted. While there will be many times in this coming week I will face the challenges of day to day life, let them be reminders of how dependent I am on you each day, each hour, each minute, each second! You and You alone are my strength and hope. As You guide me thru each day, let me never forget that my greatest way of saying Thank You is in my decisions that honor You, and in my actions to let others know You are my Lord and Savior. Guide me oh great Jehovah I ask and pray in the name of Jesus…AMEN!!!

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: It is pretty sad when an evil dictator can understand how a specific issue can destroy the culture better than many religious leaders who are tasked with helping to protect the foundations of the culture. Let me say up front that a dictator is ultimately seeking what ! is in his
best interest, not the people’s. Having laid that predicate, I find it interesting that the evil Vladimir Putin, the Russian dictator, stated recently that there will NEVER be same-sex marriage in Russia as long as he is the leader. Again, this is not from some deeply held religious conviction, but from his desire to control the Russian people. It is in this context that Putin has concluded the culture remains most stable with traditional marriage and family structures. Putin and all autocrats seek the stability of their people, and radical changes within the culture will always eventually challenge that stability. Again, while not their motivation, dictators on the scene in 2020 understand God’s plan for marriage and the family is the foundation to a stable culture. What a contrast to see faith leaders, primarily those proclaiming to be Christians, in free societies around the globe giving in to the destruction of the foundation of those societies without much of a figh! t. Many of
these faith leaders actually end up supporting the perversion of God’s plan for marriage and the family. Sad!

DOES ANYONE CARE ABOUT THE ETERNAL SOULS OF MEN ANY LONGER???????????

This is a special message from me to you, from my heart to yours. This is the conversation we would have if we were sitting across from each other in a local diner or restaurant sharing a cup of coffee (well, water for me since I don’t drink coffee). This is just me, just sharing my heart with you today.

Today, in the US and all over the world, we have more Christian everything than ever in the 2000 years since our Lord walked this earth. At the same time, we have a nation and world that has thoroughl! y rejected Christ and His
Truth, perverted who Jesus is, used Him to justify gross sin, all the while satan has virtually roamed without opposition successfully creating a global attitude to lead the vast percentage of the 7 billion people alive on our planet to the flames of hell for all eternity!!!

If you study the OT, you will see that from the very beginning, satan has used his guile and cunning to help guide the souls of men to hell, even using the very instruments of God to accomplish his goals. In the first chapters of Genesis we read of men who satan conned into thinking they could be like God, putting in their heart the idea to build a “tower” to heaven.

Many of Israel’s kings were nothing more than satan’s pawns. Even the very men of God people looked to for Divine guidance were hijacked by the enemy to lead His people astray. Fast forward to 2020 and you will see nothing has really changed. So many of the men and women of God people look to for spiritual direction have sold ! their
souls to satan for the worldly riches and pleasures of this brief journey through life.

Let me remind you, that the ultimate agenda of satan is to lead the eternal souls of men to hell. Sadly, the church, the one instrument of God that is to be the salt and light of this earth is virtually non-existent in today’s culture. In too many cases the church has actually allowed the Godless culture to lead the people due to the better percentage of the last 2 generations who have never been to a church.

Well over 60% of “Christian”churches now condone gross sins like homosexuality and abortion. In the past 20 years, you have over 40% of people who go to church, attending a church using a man-made marketing purpose driven/seeker/emerging church/prosperity gospel marketing strategies designed to put warm bodies in the pews, not converts to the faith!

Is it any wonder why we have a weak, Biblically illiterate, ineffective, and inconsequential church today?

PR! AISE GOD
FOR THOSE FEW PASTORS AND CHURCHES WHO HAVE NO BOWED THEIR KNEE TO BAAL AND ARE REACHING OUT TO THE LOST WITHOUT COMPROMISE WITH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST!!!

The Christian media, book publishers, TV and radio stations and networks, music publishers, as well as the para-church ministries, are virtually all simply preaching to the choir. I understand since that is where their support comes from and how they survive year to year. The problem is, those who need to hear the Gospel the most never will.

The “professional” ministries are too busy compromising the Truth to be politically correct and raising money for their newest building or private jet, to care about anything other than how to reach more Christians to fund their fiefdoms. So the lost masses are left to the wolves of satan who will lead their souls to hell, while most of those who possess the Truth hide in the safety and profitability of the “Christian trough.”

I love you and care about you so much! . I am
the first to admit, despite knowing we have impacted tens of millions of lives over 20+ years, maybe even yours, seeing over 1.6 million souls we know of come to faith in Jesus, responding to over 170 million emails for prayer, in the larger the picture we have failed.

This nation and world is worse off spiritually than when we started Liveprayer 20 years ago. While I never lose sight that our first job is to minister to the needs of individual people each day, God has clearly called me and His ministry here to play a key role in leading this nation back to His Truth while helping millions find everlasting life through faith in Jesus Christ.

I am finished failing, finished accepting anything less than a radical spiritual change to this nation!

Over the years and through the sacrifce of thousands, Liveprayer has created many tested and proven successful ministry components for this moment. In 2003, we successfully created a unique TV program for secular te! levision
that most nights got higher ratings than multi-million dollar national programs.

Several years ago, we launched the Jonah Project, our initial call for this nation to turn back to God and His Truth. Shortly after, we unveiled the Liveprayer Church, the world’s online cathedral where now over 10,000 plus come from around the world each week to worship. Recently, we called forth 7,000 who refuse to bow their knee to baal to be part of the modern day remnant.

ALL OF THESE PROVEN AND SUCCESSFUL MINISTRY PIECES ARE IN PLACE, READY, TO WORK IN HARMONY TO LEAD THIS ONCE GODLY NATION, THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD, AND HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS, EVEN BILLIONS, OF LOST AND SEARCHING SOULS TO FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST!!!

Please be praying for me and those who are in the Liveprayer family. Even though we have been under the gun financially more than usual, that is because satan knows how effective we have been and how dangerous Liveprayer is to his agenda. This ministry is not ab! out
buildings, huge staffs, private jets, mansions, luxury cars, and $10,000 suits, or building our own kingdom, this ministry from day one has been about building the Kingdom of God and…….. SOULS!!!

Let me ask the question one more time, DOES ANYONE CARE ABOUT THE ETERNAL SOULS OF MEN ANY LONGER? IF YOUR ANSWER IS YES, THAN TELL OTHERS ABOUT LIVEPRAYER, PRAY FOR ME, STAND WITH ME, SACRIFCE AS YOU HAVE BEEN BLESSED TO HELP ME, AND MOST OF ALL…TELL OTHERS THAT THE JESUS OF THE BIBLE IS OUR ONLY HOPE AND ONLY ANSWER!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

(Lamentations 1:17)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, I know I have only one life, one life to live for You. This is my moment in human history. Please Lord, let me make the most if it. Use my life to do great things for You as I surrender it afresh to You each morning. When I take my last breath, let there be no regrets, no sadness, that I didn’t use my life fully for Your Glory! In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: A Federal judge has blocked the Mississippi “heartbeat” abortion ban. One of the new strategies by several states to limit the number of abortions is the “heartbeat” abortion ban that says once you can find the heartbeat of the baby, you can’t murder that child. Now to anyone with an open mind on this issue, even a supporter of killing innocent babies, the presence of a heartbeat equals the uncontradicted presence of life! Of course, those in the baby killing industry refuse to allow even ONE ba! by to live and go
to court to fight ANY measure to restrict abortion at ANY time. This ruling is being appealed to the next highest court, and most likely will be joined with several other similar cases working their way through the courts on the way to the Supreme Court for an ultimate ruling on the issue. BE IN PRAYER for this case and ALL of the abortion cases that will be ending up in the Supreme Court in these next few years.

A phrase came out of Nazi Germany, “Today the Jews.” As the Jews began to be persecuted under Adolph Hitler, the fact is most Germans sat back and said/did nothing. Their attitude was that what was happening to the Jews didn’t affect them. The fact is if you sit back in silence while o! ne group is targeted,
you will wake up tomorrow and it is YOU who is the target!

This should matter to all Christians because, trust me, the church is under an all-out assault! The ultimate goal of this lost world is the complete control of all aspects of our daily lives… INCLUDING RELIGION! This is not paranoia but reality.!

Be assured, the targets won’t be pastors who stay in their pulpits, or the Christian media, since the church and Christian media have virtually zero impact on society. Do you remember in the Old Testament during the reign of the various kings, when an evil king would come into power who he would go after? It wasn’t the established religious community or the religious leaders of the day. IT WAS THE PROPHETS!

Read your Bible. The king wasn’t concerned about the priests since most of them were either in his pocket, doing their own thing, or watering down the message so much they had little impact on the people. It was the prophet they always went after. The ! prophet
of God couldn’t be bought, he had no other agenda than God’s, and he was the crazy one that would go into the public square and boldly tell the people the Truth from God without compromise or any concern for his own safety or life!

Trust me, the lost world will not be going after gutless wonders like Joel Osteen, or sell-outs like Rick Warren, or the prosperity pimps on Christian TV. They will be coming after the Bill Keller’s who will stand firm and faithfully declare the whole Truth of the Bible in the public arena and call the nation to repentance and people to turn their lives to Jesus Christ.

They will target those like me who have the audacity to call abortion murder, who favor the enemies of Israel, who support the perversion of God’s holy institution of marriage, and promote all kinds of sexual deviancy making them an enemy of God!!!

I love you and care about you so much. So what can Christians do? I have tried to explain that we must come toge! ther as one,
to speak with one voice with no personal agenda, only the agenda of God. Sadly, those who have large followings are more concerned about building their own kingdoms than God’s. They aren’t interested in leading the nation back to God, only finding people who agree with them so they can gain their financial support. This fiefdom mentally is why despite our numbers we have virtually zero influence on our culture.

I can only encourage you today. God has raised up Liveprayer for this moment in human history. Over 120,000 souls were saved in Nineveh because they turned to God! I believe that we can see millions repent and turn to God in the wake of a true national revival. You can keep living your life, taking care of yourself, or you can sacrifice your life and allow God to use you for His glory.

When you come to the end of your life, it is not what you did for yourself that will matter, but what you did for God. Read that again. When you come to the end of your li! fe, it is
not what you did for yourself that will matter, but what you did for God. The battle for the souls of this nation is not lost yet, and by turning back to God and His Truth it can be won!!!

Remember, “Today the Jews!”

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller
