A Genocidal Tool of Satan May Be on the $20 Bill

Leave a comment

(Exodus 20:13; Psalm 106:38; Jeremiah 1:5)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help me to remember today and every day the thousands of innocent babies that are slaughtered across our land every 24 hours. Let me NEVER become apathetic or complacent about the value of each life. I pray today for every man and woman making the decision to take the life of their baby, that they will choose LIFE! In the name of Jesus…AMEN!

A genocidal tool of satan may be on the $20 bill! I couldn’t make this up in my wildest dreams! There is a move underway to put Margaret Sanger on the $20 bill. Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood in 1921 with a racially motivated agenda to ultimately wipe out the black race through the killing of black babies. She described black people as “human weeks,” as “reckless breeders.”

The sick truth is, President Obama, AG Eric Holder, faux revs Jackson and Sharpton, MSNBC, CNN, the NAACP, National Urban League, and every other group promoting the current anarchy tearing this nation apart by the color of a person’s skin, is in 100% support of Planned Parenthood and their work…that includes the killing of apx. 1,400 black babies every day in this nation!!!

Mary Walling Blackburn, a professor of the arts at Southern Methodist University whose bio describes her as an activist and feminist, has written a book called, “Sister is a Happy Ghost.” It is a PRO ABORTION book about a boy whose sister was aborted and he is told she is still around him as a ghost, or an apple, or perhaps even a pig, and is “happy” because of it. Again, I couldn’t make this up if I tried!

How do you feel knowing that $528.4 MILLION of your tax dollars last year went to slaughter over 327,000 innocent babies? In their annual report, Planned “how to kill your baby” Parenthood bragged that in the past year they slaughtered 327,653 babies while generating $1.4 BILLION in revenues. $528.4 MILLION of those dollars, apx. 40% of their revenues, came from US tax payers for “women’s health services!” Despite their slick public relations efforts to promote Planned Parenthood as the leading provider of “women’s health services,” 94% of their “services” were slaughtering innocent babies!!!

In addition to the $528.4 million tax payer dollars Planned Parenthood received last year, they also took in apx. $400 million in donations. FOUR HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS IN DONATIONS!!! What kind of monster “donates” to an organization whose business is killing innocent babies??? They also reported a profit for the year of $127.1 MILLION DOLLARS! What a wonderful business. They slaughter babies to generate $1.4 BILLION in revenues, $528.4 MILLION of those revenues come from taxpayers, and net a profit of $127.1 MILLION!!!

Meanwhile, we have protestors across this nation who have adopted the slogan, “black lives matter.” Really? What about the apx. 1400 black lives murdered in the abortion millions of our nation every 24 hours? Why aren’t the protestors outside of every Planned Parenthood clinic each day demanding to know why they are killing black babies, who didn’t rob a convenience store or assault a police officer, weren’t selling illegal products and resisting arrest, but really are 100% innocent!!!

The fact that our Federal Government makes the practice of infanticide legal in this nation is sickening to me, and I can only imagine how it sickens God. The fact that the Federal Government takes $528.4 MILLION TAX DOLLARS and gives it to this organization to slaughter babies disgusts me more than I can even begin to put into words. The government not only makes killing babies legal, they actually take our tax dollars and give them to the an organization whose sole purpose is to slaughter innocent babies!


My friend, we not only are long overdue God’s wrath, but we deserve God’s wrath! Forget the fact we have turned from God to worship the false gods and idols of the world. Forget the fact that we live in total rebellion to God and His Truth. Simply the fact that we slaughter over 4,000 innocent babies every single day in this nation is enough for us to suffer whatever punishment God metes out!

I keep asking myself when will this nation wake up? I am afraid like the children of Israel so many times in the Old Testament, we have become so lost in our sin, so blinded by our rejection of and rebellion to God, that we no longer possess a conscience. Our hearts are so hardened and our soul is seared that we no longer care. Knowing that it is only a matter of moments before God says enough is enough and pours out His wrath upon this nation, it would be easy for hopelessness to set in and do nothing. That is the mindset satan wants us to have. Instead, now is the time to do more! We are the victors, it is satan who is defeated!

I love you and care about you so much. Can we ever take the Federal Government out of the business of slaughtering innocent babies? I pray daily for that moment to come. We have to do all we can to at least get them to stop funding this private organization whose only business is killing innocent babies. In the meantime, as we fight those political battles, we have to keep fighting this issue on the ground by changing hearts and lives.

Since I put up the video of an actual abortion being performed on the Liveprayer website ( http://www.liveprayer.com/aborsion.cfm ), we have received emails from over 20,000 women who were planning on killing their baby, watched that video, and decided to let their baby live. I have no doubt many more babies are alive today because of that one video clip.

As a side note, we know it takes a woman AND A MAN to create a baby. Sadly missing in the conversation about abortion is the man’s feelings, his input. I deal daily with almost as many men as women who have the scar of abortion in their past, yet they are invisible, non-existent in the conversation. I pray for all men and women with this scar in their live to find God’s forgiveness and peace.

I believe in my heart of hearts that we can see a real spiritual revival in this nation, and more importantly, see millions of lost souls turn from their sins and to faith in Jesus. The time has never been more ripe. I look at the fact this one organization whose sole goal is the slaughtering of innocent babies raised OVER ONE BILLION dollars last year. With just ONE PERCENT of that, Liveprayer can lead as many souls to everlasting life through faith in Jesus Christ as babies Planned “how to kill your baby” Parenthood can murder in a year!!!

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

End of the World

Leave a comment

(2 Timothy 3:1-9; 2 Peter 3:3-10)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, please watch over me today and keep me from all harm. I look to you for protection from the evil in this world. Father, you know my challenges today. I give them to you. Let me be about your business today, as I know you will be about mine. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

I recently saw a secular publication that was talking about the “End of the World.” I have to admit I was laughing as I opened to read how even those in the “world” without Christ understand that one day this world as we know it will end. The sad fact is, it doesn’t have enough reality to the average individual to make them realize that the days of this world are numbered; more important, the days of each one of us are numbered, and have them search for the TRUTH God has provided to us. God is trying to warn His CHILDREN to WAKE UP!!!

One topic I rarely discuss in these Devotionals is eschatology, or the study of the end times. Bible prophesy is a fascinating subject. One of my dearest friends in the ministry is Perry Stone Jr. from Cleveland TN. Perry is one of the world’s finest Bible prophecy teachers. My ministry was responsible for producing television specials with Perry over the years, that were viewed by millions of people on Christian and secular television. I also helped Perry launch his new weekly television program that is now on many fine Christian stations nationwide.

As much as I love Perry, prophecy is still highly subjective. There is much mystery in the Word, and many, many differing views on this subject. It is the one subject that you really cannot say someone is wrong, since it is yet to happen. While I have personal views on the end times, and while I enjoy Bible prophesy, my emphasis has alway been on NOW, those things that we absolutely know for sure from God’s Word and our personal daily walk and responsibilities as His children.

In light of the escalating problems in the Middle East, many people are seeing history, even Bible prophesy, unfold before their eyes. If these events mean anything to you personally, this is the message they are screaming out. There is no more time to play. There is no more time to be apathetic about our faith. There is no more time to allow ourselves to be distracted by the enemy who uses division in the body and our own personal weaknesses to keep us from serving God.

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

One of my number one goals, as I have shared before, is to help you translate your faith in Christ into your daily, real world life. You see, the enemy’s number one weapon is to get us so caught up in our weaknesses, problems, and cares of this life, that we become virtually ineffective for service in God’s army. When he can get your focus on yourself instead of your service, he has won. He has taken you out of the game. That is why we must get a handle on our own lives, so that we can effectively minister to others. We must rise above our problems, so that we can effectively help others rise above their problems.

I have many friends that are involved in multi-level marketing organizations. I think it is a creative and very legitimate way to make money if the company and their products and/or services are legit. The key to success in the MLM world is mobilizing people and helping them overcome their issues, so that they an effectively help others in their down-lines be productive. That is the crux of success in that world. For me personally, that is exactly what God has called me to do with my life, but not for an organization and for money, but for the Kingdom of God and to fulfill His plan for my life. It is time for the people of God to stand up, become bold, and share with this dying and lost world the message that there is hope and everlasting life through God’s son Jesus Christ!

I love you and care about you very much. I have received so much mail in the last day or so from people concerned about the events unfolding around the world. Let me simply say this. Only God knows the hour, minute, or second of Christ’s return. Until then, He has given us very clear instructions that we are to be about His business until that glorious moment. You do not have to be a Biblical scholar to read passages (Matthew 24; 2 Timothy 3; 2 Peter 3) that tell us clearly we are in the last days. His coming is very soon.

Now more than ever, we need to get past our own problems, because God needs His children, all of His children on the front lines. Just like our brave men and women of the Armed Services put their lives on the line daily in defense of our great nation, our Commander in Chief is asking each one in His army to do likewise. This is not a video game. The stakes are eternal life versus eternal damnation. Too many of God’s children are AWOL at this critical moment. I pray today that you will hear His call to battle and understand that answering that call is not an option. It is something each and every one of His children, His army is required to do each day. Answer the call, fight the good fight of faith. These my friend, are the last days. Now is the time!!!

In His love and service

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

A Real Word for the Nation

Leave a comment

(Jeremiah 15:16)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, I ask you today to open my heart and my Spirit to receive what you have for me today. Let me hear Your voice clearly and obediently follow You. Use me oh Lord, for your glory and to advance Your Kingdom! In the name of Jesus…AMEN!!!

A REAL WORD FOR THE NATION! Last month I shared with you a real word from the Lord about this nation and our future. God, through me, has declared this year, 2015, a year of VICTORY! Victory for the Believer can only come in one way…REVIVAL!!! Victory is NOT going to come through a politician. As passionate and articulate as the words of Ted Cruz were yesterday as he announced his run for President at my alma mater Liberty University, DO NOT BE FOOLED!

Giving Senator Cruz every benefit of the doubt that everything he said he believed and wanted to accomplish, the FACT is, he is not able to! I remember in 2000 and again in 2004 the promises President George W. Bush made to the Christian community on abortion and gay marriage. Rather than calling him a liar for not doing what he promised on those two issues, let me simply say he was not able to do what he promised to do. As much as our current President may wish it so and tries to make it so, the President of the United States is NOT a dictator!

So no matter what a candidate like Cruz or anyone else may promise, they simply don’t have the ability to fulfill that promise! That is why today I chose to re-air this powerful word from God from just a month ago so you don’t get distracted, don’t get led down a “primrose path” to nowhere, but stay focused on REALITY! Reality is that the problems of this nation are not political, they are spiritual. The answers needed to save the soul of this nation will never come from ANY politician, but a man or woman of God who will lead this nation into revival and ways of righteousness!!!

While the announcement of Cruz at Liberty gave people, especially Christians, hope, IT IS A FALSE HOPE! Please hear me! The false hope is that while this carefully choreographed message to a hand-picked audience was so wonderful, it was NOT reality! Reality exists outside the walls of Liberty University, just like reality exists outside the four walls of the church. Listening to the commentary AFTER the Cruz announcement, it quickly reminded me that there is a world that has rejected the Gospel and Biblical Truth, and more important, those who have embraced the hope and promise of Christ!

This is the exact reason why a politician, in an inherently corrupt institution like politics, WILL NOT AND CAN NOT CHANGE THE SPIRITUAL COURSE OF THIS NATION! The only true hope and answer to save the soul of this nation lies in a move of God’s Holy Spirit, a nation who like the people of Nineveh fall on their knees and repent of their sins and turn to God our Creator and His Truth! That is the reason a politician can’t solve or even put a dent into the true problems of this nation, only a man or woman of God led by His Spirit calling our land to turn back to God and Biblical Truth!!!

Let me make this clear for you today. For the past 10 years, FOX News has been the dominant cable new network, and during that time a true tool of satan names Barack Hussein Obama was not just elected once…but TWICE! The second time, just 2 1/2 years ago, when FOX News dominated the cable news landscape and spent every day for four years doing their best to insure Obama would not be re-elected.

The same goes for Rush and the talk radio world. As profitable as that world is for the mains “stars,” it has proved to be an utter FAILURE in promoting their political agenda since they also spent every day for four years working to insure President Obama would not be re-elected. Their “success” in ratings is attributed to their ability to tap into a niche market of people with a similar political ideology that makes the hosts multi-millions annually, but their ability to affect the political course of this nation is a myth.


Even more sad, are those who purport to be “Christian leaders,” who like the political entertainers of our day are nothing but “Christian entertainers!” Like the OT priests, the “god” of our “Christian leaders” is money. Why else would a Christian university like Liberty allow a satan worshipping Mormon cult member like Beck, or worse, a 5th generation high priest of the satanic Mormon cult Mitt Romney, be invited to spew their heresy?

Following the playbook of Myung Sung Moon who ( he claimed to be the second coming of Jesus) in the 80s bought off the top evangelical leaders of that day through “front organizations”
(http://www.cuttingedge.org/news/n1818.cfm), people like LaHaye, Baur, Graham, Crouch, Robison, Reed, Robertson, Schuller, Falwell, Kennedy to name a few, Beck has bought off some of the EXACT SAME PEOPLE to build his empire on the lies that he is a “Christian” when a first day Bible college student knows Mormon theology is no more Christian than Islamic theology!

FOX News, Rush, Beck, and the conservative talk radio world, along with the top Christian leaders of our day, have proven an incredible ability to raise hundreds of millions of dollars from their target audience while being total failures at what they purport to be about! A “pretender” like President Obama probably never gets elected once let alone twice if the conservative media had ANY true influence, nor would this nation be in the spiritual freefall it finds itself if the Christian leaders were using the incredible wealth they generate annually on building God’s Kingdom and not their own!!!

Having laid this foundation, please take a moment and read, meditate, on the word from God Himself. Please share this message with everyone in your email contact lies, and on your Facebook, Twitter, and other social media. It is the ONLY answer and ONLY hope for this nation that is currently under the judgment of God and will face His ultimate wrath unless we fall on our knees, repent, and turn back to the Almighty and His Truth!!!

Then I said, “Listen, you leaders of Jacob, you rulers of Israel. Should you not embrace justice, you who hate good and love evil; who tear the skin from my people and the flesh from their bones; who eat my people’s flesh, strip off their skin and break their bones in pieces; who chop them up like meat for the pan, like flesh for the pot? ” Then they will cry out to the Lord, but he will not answer them. At that time he will hide his face from them because of the evil they have done.

This is what the Lord says: “As for the prophets who lead my people astray, they proclaim ‘peace’ if they have something to eat, but prepare to wage war against anyone who refuses to feed them. Therefore night will come over you, without visions,and darkness, without divination. The sun will set for the prophets, and the day will go dark for them. The seers will be ashamed and the diviners disgraced. They will all cover their faces because there is no answer from God.”

But as for me, I am filled with power, with the Spirit of the Lord, and with justice and might, to declare to Jacob his transgression, to Israel his sin. Hear this, you leaders of Jacob, you rulers of Israel, who despise justice and distort all that is right; who build Zion with bloodshed, and Jerusalem with wickedness. Her leaders judge for a bribe, her priests teach for a price, and her prophets tell fortunes for money. Yet they look for the Lord’s support and say, “Is not the Lord among us? No disaster will come upon us.” Therefore because of you, Zion will be plowed like a field, Jerusalem will become a heap of rubble, the temple hill a mound overgrown with thickets. Micah 3:1-12

If you want to sum up all of the warnings I have shared with you over the past 16 yrs now, here it is. Focus on these words from the prophet Micah, “Her leaders judge for a bribe, her priests teach for a price, and her prophets tell fortunes for money.”

The politicians who lead this nation are ALL bought and paid for. You can’t raise hundreds of millions of dollars regardless of your party unless you have sold your soul. That is why NO politician will ever have the ability to deal with our real problems which are spiritual and not political.

Just like in the OT, today’s “priests,” the high profile men and women of God, do NOTHING for free. You pay to go to their events, buy their books and tapes, get trinkets in return for your love gifts, so they can live like the rulers of small nations in their mansions, luxury cars, and private jets.

Sadly, most prophets today turn the Word of God into a Christian psychic friends network. They are little different than the businesses with the neon “palm reader” or “fortune teller” signs. They tell you want you want to hear in exchange for money.

I want you to go back and read these words from Micah again. Slowly. Take in each word. Few people fully comprehend the spiritual abyss this nation is in. In just my short 57 years on earth, I have literally seen this nation go from embracing God and His Truth, to mocking God and His Truth. GOD WILL NOT BE MOCKED AND JUST AS THESE WORDS WERE TRUE FOR THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, THEY ARE TRUE FOR US!

In years past when this nation was in times of trouble, its’ leaders and people called on the name of God. Now, the Almighty is silent as they call on Him, living in open rebellion to Him and His Truth. However, once again God our Creator will hear the cry of His people and shower them with His grace and mercy!

The prophet Jeremiah said in 15:16, “When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart’s delight, for I bear your name, LORD God Almighty.”


I love you and care about you so much. Our time is very short. Our only hope as a nation is to turn back to God and His Truth. We have been under God’s judgment for several years now, and as each day passes that we don’t repent, it will only get more severe. The eternal souls of men are at stake. This nation, like Nineveh, will ultimately be destroyed for our sins and wickedness. However, there is coming a season of repentance and a mighty harvest of souls that will be won to faith in Christ.

How Committed Are You to Jesus

Leave a comment

(John 15:19-21; John 16:2-3; 1 John 5:19; Matthew 24:9; Acts 20:24)

How committed are you to Jesus? I think that is a fair question to ask since if you are saved, when you made that commitment to Christ, you literally gave Him your life. The Bible says that we have been bought with a price and that it is no longer our life. So I ask you again, how committed are you to Jesus? I would never ask you a question like that if I wasn’t willing to ask myself that same question. The fact is, each morning when I wake up, I go through the process of surrendering my life afresh to the Lord. Even so, I have to check myself at times during the day by asking myself how committed I really am to the Lord?

I think about John the Baptist. He was called by God to prepare the way for the Messiah, the Savior of the world. Remember how his life ended? He had has head cut off for having the audacity to call sin sin. Think about Stephen in Acts 7. Remember how he died? He was literally stoned to death for simply sharing the Gospel, and may I remind you that he was speaking to the religious leaders of his day! Of course there is Jesus. I remember when he preached and people left because of what He taught. In John 6:66 the Bible says, “As a result of this many of His disciples withdrew and were not walking with Him anymore.” Why? PEOPLE DON’T WANT TO BE REMINDED OF THEIR SIN, OF THEIR REBELLION TO GOD! Of course, our Lord was ultimately crucified for simply stating the fact that He was God!

I asked you today how committed you are to Jesus? Are you committed enough to be laughed at, scorned, ridiculed, and called every nasty name there is because you take a stand for Christ? Are you committed enough to be persecuted by family, friends, and strangers because you take a stand for Christ? Are you committed enough to die because you take a stand for Christ?

This has been a challenging few weeks for me personally, in my own journey of faith. I am no different than you. I am tempted by the things of this world like everyone is. I doubt God at times like we all do. I fail God too often. I try to do my best each day, but when the day is over I know I could have done more. Something is happening right now in the heavenlies regarding Liveprayer. I can only tell you it is my spiritual discernment telling me this, but something big is happening. I always know because when the battles are being waged in the heavenlies (Ephesians 6) because I get indications through the daily events that unfold in this world we live in and here at Liveprayer.

ALL of this is happening along with our daily work in ministering to over 2.4 million people worldwide every day through the Daily Devotional, responding each day to over 40,000 emails for prayer, the Liveprayer TV program “live” from Mid-2am EDT every Monday-Friday. Through those proven daily efforts we are seeing thousands of praise reports each week from people God has touched and apx 1,000 people from around the world every week giving their hearts and lives to Jesus by faith! I see enough happening in the natural to know there are some incredible battles over Liveprayer being waged right now in the heavenlies. God is up to something!!!

As I have answered God’s challenge in my own life regarding my commitment to Christ, today I pass on that challenge to you. I am challenging those in the Liveprayer family to make an even greater commitment to Christ each day. This small group that God has sovereignly put together through this 21st century electronic marvel called the Internet, has already impacted tens of millions of lives worldwide and seen over 900,000 souls we know of come to faith in Jesus Christ since we began in August of 1999. God is calling me, and He is calling you, to now take our commitment to the next level!

The fact is, it is up to us each day just how much of an impact we will have for the Lord. We can do as little or as much as we want. For me, it took cleansing myself of earthy goals and setting instead heavenly goals. It took not being motivated by the temporal material things of this world but by the eternal spiritual things of God. You see my friend, the things of this world, money, possessions, power, position, all mean NOTHING in light of eternity. The moment you die, all of those things cease to exist or have any importance at all. The only thing left when you take your last breath are the things you’ve done for the Kingdom. Your only real legacy is in the hearts and souls of those lives you have impacted for Jesus during your journey here.

I love you and care about you so much. I have never asked you to do anything I haven’t done. Before I ask you to sacrifice to give to this ministry, my wife and I already have made our sacrifice. Before I ask you to take a stand for Christ, I’ve already taken my stand. I have always believed that you lead by example. I would not be asking you today to make a greater commitment to Christ if I hadn’t already done so. I am challenging you today to take some time alone with the Lord and let God show you how He can use your life as part of the Liveprayer family to help me make the impact, not on millions, but on BILLIONS of lives God has called us to make.

If you’ve been called to pray for me and this ministry, seek God how you can pray more effectively. If you’ve been called to sacrifice to give to support God’s work here, seek God how you can make an even greater sacrifice. If you’ve been called to share Liveprayer with people you know, seek God how you can share this work with even more people. It is no accident that God has brought our lives together, and through the commitment to Christ we have each made, God has used our lives over 16 years to impact tens of millions of lives around the world.


How committed are you to Jesus? The soul of our nation is hanging in the balance!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

What People Wear to Church

Leave a comment

(1 Timothy 2:9; Ecclesiastes 9:8)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: This is the day the Lord hath made, I will rejoice and be glad in it!!! Thank you for this wonderful day my Lord. It is a day like none other. There will never be another day like this day. Let me never take for granted even one day of this precious gift of life you bestow upon me. Let me do something this day to bring honor and glory to you. I love you Lord, my life is yours, use it for your glory. Thank you for your many blessings, so many I can’t even begin to count them. In the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ I pray…AMEN!!!

This is one of those Devotionals I have shared in the past that upsets a few folks. It is an issue that needs to be addressed, but is so fraught with “land mines,” it will no dobut end up upsetting many people today as well. Hopefully God has given me the wisdom of Solomon in dealing with what is a very sensitive issue and helped me to address all of the different views regarding not only what we wear to church, but what a Pastor wears.

Keep in mind that the real message today is one of RESPECT. Don’t fall into the trap of getting emotional or upset, but keep in mind at the end of the day this is NOT a message about clothes but about RESPECT!

Let me ask you a question. If you are going on an interview for a great job that pays well, has wonderful benefits, what are you going to wear? Do you show up in jeans, shorts, sandals, a t-shirt, or do you take the time and effort to put on the best clothes you have? Ultimately, they are hiring you, not your clothes, so why bother dressing up? What you wear doesn’t change who you are or the skills and gifts you have to perform the job you are trying to get. You put on your best clothes so that you can make the best impression possible. You dress up so the person interviewing you knows that you care enough about the job to look your best.

Many companies and businesses have strict dress codes. You are required to dress up when you are at work due to the image that business wants to portray to those they associate with. They have set certain standards for their employees to live up to including what they wear while on the job. Dressing up to come to work doesn’t make their employees any smarter, or perform their job at a higher level, but it does show respect and commitment to their job when they take the time and effort to dress nice.

I know I am stepping into the deep end today, but this is a word that I need to bring forth. If we can get dressed up to go on a job interview, if we can dress up to go to work, if we can dress up to go visit Aunt Betty, if we can dress up to go to a nice restaurant, if we can dress up for dozens of other reasons, WHY CAN’T WE DRESS UP TO GO SEE JESUS??? What ever happened to having enough respect for the house of God to put on our best clothes when we go there? If you had a meeting with Jesus, wouldn’t you put on your best clothes to go see Him?

Like in everything that happens in a church, it is the pastor, the shepherd, who must lead. The pastor must have a vision for his church and convey that vision to the people and lead them in seeing it fulfilled. The pastor must lead his church in every other area as well, INCLUDING WHAT PEOPLE WEAR TO CHURCH! Let me be blunt. It is no wonder people go to church today in torn jeans, shorts, deck shoes, golf shirts, t-shirts, when that is what the pastor wears! It is no wonder why women show up to church on Sunday looking like they are ready to work in the garden or go to the club, young men and women wearing clothes that show their underwear, when the pastor has created this lax, laid back, casual environment based on the fact he shows up on Sunday morning like he is heading to the gym!

I know I’m in the middle of it now, so please bear with me. What I am talking about is not some violation of God’s Word that says you have to dress up to come to church or that the pastor has to wear a suit and tie. What I am talking about is setting a standard, having enough respect for God and His house to take the time and effort and care enough to put on your best clothes when you go to church. The pastor is God’s representative. He is not only there to lead the people, but to set the example for them. What I am talking about today is appearance, simply honoring the Lord in what we wear when we come to serve and worship Him.

Listen, I am VERY aware that too many have used Sunday morning like it is a Milan fashion show. It sadly turned into a time to see who can out dress the other. That is just as wrong on the other end of the spectrum. I am also aware that many who come to church simply don’t have nice clothes. They should not be made to feel inferior or unwelcome just because they may not have nice clothes to wear, but that doesn’t mean the whole church has to come looking like they are homeless! Every person has a different wardrobe, but most men have a suit and tie and most women have a nice dress or other outfits they wear when they dress up. That is all I am talking about. Making the effort to dress nice and look our best out of respect for the house of God and for our Lord.

I am also well aware of the argument that it is not what you wear when you come to church, but your heart. I agree. It is more important that we are there, with a heart open to praising and worshipping our great God and being fed His Word and fellowshipping with other Believers. My point is that it still comes back to an issue of respecting God’s house and the Lord enough to dress up and look our best when we come to church on Sunday morning, and it is the pastor who sets that standard for his church by what he wears on Sunday morning and encouraging his congregation to come to church looking their best.

I love you and care about you so much. I realize that this is not the most spiritual issue there is, but it is real life, and trust me, it IS an issue. Having preached in over 500 churches of all denominations around the nation, I know it is something that many pastors and churches struggle with. Much of the controversy around how to dress for church has arisen in the past 10 years with the plethora of “seeker churches” and churches who have “contemporary” services. I know the idea is to “meet people where they are at,” and to try to not look like “church,” but I have never agreed that you have to disguise the message or lower the standards to reach the lost. Going to church should be at least as special as going out to eat at a nice restaurant.

Going to God’s house should automatically demand enough respect for those who come to wear nice clothes. It is not to show off what a great wardrobe you have, use it as an opportunity to flaunt some high-priced outfit, but to simply out of respect and honor for God, look nice. Again, it is the pastor who has to lead on this issue, and that doesn’t mean he has to show up every Sunday in a new $5,000 Boss suit with a $300 tie. He is the one God has placed in a position of spiritual authority and he needs to set the standard for his church in all things, including how they dress. He is God’s representative and should at least respect God enough to wear a coat and tie on Sunday.

I will be praying for you today. Yes, the most important thing is the message and the work of the Kingdom. However, church is a special place and a special time each week. We should make it special by what we wear. It should be special enough for us to dress up, to put on our best clothes and honor God not only with our heart and but with our appearance. I have NO DOUBT that if you knew Jesus was coming to visit you in an hour, you would immediately be in the shower, you would wash your hair, brush your teeth, put on your best cologne or perfume, and you would PUT ON YOUR BEST CLOTHES!

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

How Many Pastors Never Give an Invitation to Accept Christ as Savior

Leave a comment

(Ezekiel 33:8; 2 Corinthians 6:2; James 4:14; John 14:6)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, I know that it is your desire that ALL come to repentance, that none be lost. Please give me a passion for souls. Help me to look at each person and never forget that they are created in your image, that one day they will die, and they have an eternal soul. Take away any fear, any hesitancy, to share the hope we have in Jesus with those people you bring into my life. Let me never forget that without Jesus, their soul will be lost for all eternity and do my part to share with them how they can have everlasting life through faith in Jesus who died for their sins. It is in the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

How many pastors NEVER give those they preach to an invitation to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior? Today, I must address what to me is the biggest problem in the church today, since it goes to the root of the church’s greatest responsibility and that is to bring the lost to faith in Jesus Christ. I realize the church is to spiritually feed its members, to equip the saints for service, to be a place where Believers can find fellowship with other Believers, and where most followers of Christ serve Him. However, without question the most important job of the church is to reach out to the lost and hurting and to help lead people to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, the forgiveness of their sins, and God’s free gift of everlasting life through faith in His Son!

This is a message that percolated for several years now and was born out of the daily contact I have with thousands and thousands of people all over this nation and around the world, the first hand knowledge I have of tens of thousands of churches, and the spiritual malpractice well over 50% of pastors commit each and most every Sunday!!!

Having started my public ministry in the great city of Chicago in 1992, I studied in great detail the life and ministry of D.L. Moody. One of my great honors early in my ministry was to preach on several occasions to the students at the Moody Bible Institute and preach a mid-week service at the great Moody Memorial Church. One of the events that greatly impacted the life and ministry of Moody was the night of the Chicago fire. It was Sunday night, October 8, 1871, and as Moody finished his sermon, he told the crowd who had gathered to hear him preach to evaluate their relationship with Christ and return next week to make their decisions for Him. That crowd never gathered since during the night the building they were meeting in was consumed by the fire and it would be months before they would find a new place to hold their services.

Moody would never again make the grievous mistake of sending home those who came to hear him preach without giving them an invitation to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. The Bible proclaims that TODAY is the day of salvation. The Bible teaches that tomorrow is promised to NONE of us. Moody was haunted by the question, how many people who would have been moved by the Holy Sprit to walk the aisle and give their life to Christ on that infamous October night, never did so and died in their sins, lost for all eternity?

Dwight L. Moody would not even recognize the vast majority of “pastors” today. Men, and now women, who preach a watered down message, using secular books for their references rather than the Bible. “Pastors” who stand in the pulpits of America and refuse to even deal with sin since it might offend people. The ones who make a mockery of Christ by condoning, accepting, and even glorifying gross sins like homosexuality and the slaughter of innocent babies. And what I am certain would break Moody’s heart, “pastors” who preach Sunday after Sunday and NEVER give an invitation for those they are preaching to, to accept Jesus as their Savior by faith.

During the first 3 yrs of my public ministry, I preached in over 500 churches all over the nation. All types of denominations, racial and ethnic make-ups, churches with thousands and churches with less than 20. It was during those years I had my first insight into how many churches rarely, if ever gave those who gathered on Sunday an opportunity to accept Jesus as their Savior by faith. Over these past 16 years of Liveprayer, in dealing with literally tens of thousands of people first hand, thousands upon thousands of churches all over this country and around the world, I would not hesitate to estimate that in well over 50% of churches, those who gather are NEVER given the invitation to ask Jesus into their heart and life by faith and become born again…NEVER!

I remember watching much of the memorial services held at various churches for President Reagan back in June of 2004, and then in January ’06, watching all of the various memorial series held for President Ford. I heard one “pastor” after another speaking, waiting for just one, just one, to at least have the guts to tell those listening what Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” There was one who actually did cite that passage, but had the audacity to leave off, “No one comes to the Father except through me,” I am sure afraid of offending someone in the audience. How offended will those people be when they die without Jesus and are spending eternity in hell because some gutless “pastor” refused to tell them the Truth?

I gave up hope long ago on seeing even one of these “pastors” with the world watching on these special occasions, actually doing what God has called them to do and sharing the Gospel. Simply telling the people that if you die without Jesus you will be lost for all eternity. My goodness, you have the “pastor” of the largest church in the nation who goes on television often and actually brags that he doesn’t talk about sin and refuses to answer the most basic question of the Christian faith which is that faith in Jesus is the ONLY way men can be saved and those who choose to reject Him will be in hell. These men dishonor Christ and the Bible clearly says those who have taken on the mantle of leadership will be held to a much higher standard. God will hold them accountable one day.

This problem in the pastorate has all unfolded over the past 40 years. Most of the mainline denominations began to require their pastors to have a seminary education, but they did not state which seminaries. As the nation began to rebel against all authority in the mid ’60s, that included rebelling against God and the Truth of His Word. Liberal seminaries popped up that denied the inspiration and inerrancy of Scripture. Men no longer needed to be “called” by God, but simply complete the required education. I am convinced there is a percentage, larger than you might think, of “pastors” in this nation who are not even saved!

Once you reject the authority of the Bible, it opened the door to women “pastors,” “pastors” who condone sins like homosexually and abortion, “pastors” who quoted secular books as well as books used by the false religions of the world more than the Bible, “pastors” who refuse to deal with sin, and “pastors” who have never given an altar call or led a lost soul to faith in Christ in their life!

You also have “pastors” like Joel Osteen who have never even been to Bible college! It is no wonder he has no grasp of theology. He majored in broadcasting in college and ran his father’s television ministry until taking over as “pastor” after his father’s death. Being a pastor is not like running the family business. You can’t simply wake up one day and decide to be a pastor, though sadly many do. Let me ask you a question. Would you want someone operating on your heart who has never been to medical school, but simply woke up one day and decided they wanted to be a heart surgeon? OF COURSE NOT! Yet people put their eternal souls in the hands of “pastors” every day who have never even taken a Bible college class!

Listen, I am not saying you have to have the alphabet following your name to be qualified to pastor a church. However, if you have truly been called, God will guide you to the formal theological training you need to at least properly preach and teach His Word. There is so much more that goes into it, but you have to have at least a basic theological education from a legitimate Bible school that holds the Bible to be God’s inspired inerrant Word, representing Absolute Truth, and our final authority in all matters.

Anyone who answers the call of God to preach His Word has the fundamental responsibility of preaching the Gospel and leading the lost to faith in Jesus Christ. A pastor who ends a service without giving an invitation to accept Christ to those he is preaching to is committing spiritual malpractice, and as one of God’s watchmen, God WILL hold them accountable for those who die and spend eternity in hell because they refused to tell them how to be saved!

I love you and care about you so much. I am going to make a very bold statement right now. If you are going to a church where you rarely, or even worse, never, hear your pastor give people the invitation to ask Christ into their hearts and lives, you need to confront your pastor why not. There is NO reason not to. It is his job. In fact, it is probably the most basic and fundamental part of his job. If he did nothing else but that, he would be fulfilling God’s calling on his life. You need to hear his explanation for why he refuses to obey God, and then you need do pray if that is really the church God wants you and your family to be part of.

Also, the next time you are in church, look around you. Look at the people around you and ask yourself how many of those people are NOT Believers, who have never given their heart and life to Christ by faith. Ask yourself how many of those people will die and spend eternity in hell for their rejection of Christ. Pray for them to hear the Gospel clearly presented. Pray for them to allow the Holy Sprit to open their heart to God’s love for them. Pray for them to surrender their life to Christ by faith and be saved

Lastly, if your pastor is one of these pastors who never gives an invitation at the end of his service, forward this Devotional to him, or her, and pray they come under conviction. I already know I am going to take TONS of heat for this message. That is OK. I have to be obedient to God. I am almost certain you have NEVER heard a message like this before and never will again. People are too afraid to say what needs to be said. I can’t stay silent because the eternal souls of men are at stake.

Those God has called and given the honor to preach, can be used by Him to bring many lost souls to faith in Jesus Christ. That won’t happen by accident, it won’t happen by putting on a great performance, it won’t happen by tricking them, and it won’t happen because you made them feel good. The only way a person will get saved is if you love them enough to share with them the simplicity of the Gospel They need to admit they are a sinner and need a Savior and that Christ’s loves them unconditionally and wants to have an eternal relationship with them.

It is the job of ALL Believers in Christ to share the Gospel with the lost. However, there is NO EXCUSE for any pastor to hold any type of service and not give those who attend the opportunity to ask Christ into their heart and life by faith and be saved!

The Lesson of a Selfless Little Boy

Leave a comment

(Matthew 14:13-21)

***WATCH VIDEO CLIP: Friday night on the TV program, like EVERY night, we get people who have never seen the program, up late at night and going through the challenges life can bring, flipping stations, and “accidentally” find Liveprayer. Such was the case Friday night of Sandra, a dear woman battling cancer, her husband involved in multiple affairs, alone, and simply crying out. THAT IS WHY FOR THE PAST 12 YEARS I HAVE DONE THE TV PROGRAM ‘LIVE” ON NON-CHRISTIAN STATIONS AND NETWORKS, TO BE THERE FOR PEOPLE LIKE SANDRA!

Please take a few minutes out of your day, watch this clip of her call from last Friday, and pray for her as God brings healing to her body from cancer, moves on her husband’s heart and heals their marriage, and brings her true peace and joy once again! Clip from Liveprayer TV program Friday, March 13, 2015: http://youtu.be/E3zWdqLvxu8

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help me to be open to using my life and the blessings you have bestowed upon me to bless others. I appreciate all you have done for me Lord, and the greatest way I can show my appreciation is in my service to others. Guide me through the Holy Spirit and show me how to use my life to impact the lives of others for you and your Kingdom, in the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

The lesson of a selfless little boy. Most people know the story of Jesus feeding the 5,000 with the a few loaves and fishes. What I never hear when this powerful miracle is recounted, is the fact that many of the people present had food to give, but it was only that one lone boy who was willing to give Jesus all he had in order for EVERYONE to be fed.

When I think about this powerful truth, it reminds me of today. How many people are blessed with 24 hours a day, talents and gifts, financial resources, yet refuse to share them with others? It is amazing that the few who do share their time, their talent, their treasure to further the work of the Lord, how God multiplies what is given to feed the multitudes, just like he multiplied the loaves and fishes to feed the multitudes on that day!

At the end of August, Liveprayer will be 16 yrs old. In that time, we have raised a bit under $9 million dollars for our internet and TV operations. Many ministries raise that in a month to pay for their buildings, staff, private jets, and lavish living expenses, and in the end are only preaching to the choir! The funds we have raised has been done due to the sacrifce from less than 10,000 faithful friends over all of these years. That is right, less than 10,000 of the TENS OF MILLIONS we have reached and impacted have ever given a dime to God’s work here at Liveprayer. That is a fraction of 1%!

There are many reasons for that. First, all we have done here at Liveprayer has been done for FREE. However, there is a cost involved in getting the Gospel and God’s Truth out to the masses. We have never charged anyone for anything, I don’t bribe people to give with “love gifts,” and we don’t sell books, tapes resources. All we have done has been without charge since the Gospel and God’s Truth is freely received and is to be freely given. Also, over 20% of those we reach are outside the US, another 20% are under 25, both groups who struggle to get by and rarely can send a gift.

Second, I don’t “tickle ears.” I am not a motivational speaker like the gutless Joel Osteen, nor am I trying to build my own kingdom like the seeker/purpose driven/emerging church/prosperity marketeers have done. I have had more people RUN from Liveprayer than anyone can imagine because I would not back down from the difficult issues, and told people the bare Truth of what the Bible says even though many didn’t want to hear it.

Lastly, well over half of the people we have reached through the Internet, on TV, radio, in print, are not Christians. We are one of the few ministries that has dared to walk into satan’s living room and share the hope and love of Jesus with the lost and hurting right where they live!

What has been accomplished? Tens of millions of lives have been impacted, we have sent personal responses to over 100 million emails for prayer, broadcast over 2,000 TV programs that have been viewed by millions, sent out over 5500 Daily Devotionals each morning since Liveprayer went online that is read by millions around the world, and most important of all, seen over 900,000 souls we know of come to faith in Jesus Christ!

For 16 years, Liveprayer has been one of the few places people could find the unadulterated Truth of the Bible preached daily without compromise on the issues of the day from a Biblical worldview. Despite the opportunity to generated tens of millions annually by “playing along,” going on Christian TV, charging people to come to conferences or buy products, backing off the difficult issues that offend people, make decisions based on money instead of souls, joining forces with major ministry organizations which require setting aside the Absolutes of the Bible and compromise God’s Truth!

I have listened to the voice of God and done my best to be faithful to deliver His Truth to the lost and hurting masses each day regardless the personal and financial cost! A Devotional reader sent me an email the other day, “Pastor Keller, I have said this before that I feel one of the biggest and most important opportunities Liveprayer provides is the opportunity to set the Biblical record straight. So many people have either misinterpreted the Bible, or have in MANY cases, have been given mis-information!”

Compromising the Truth of the Bible, looking the other way when it is financially expedient, not talking about difficult issues so people won’t get upset with me, are things I have and will continue to REFUSE to do, since like every person, I will die and stand before God one day. At that moment, I don’t want to have to explain why I didn’t obey Him. I want to hear the words all followers of Christ desire to hear, “well done thou good and faithful servant!’

I love and care about you so much. Just like in that crowd of 5,000, it was only one little boy who was willing to give up all he had to the Lord, while everyone else refused. My challenge to you today is simply this. Will you be like the little boy with your time, talent, and treasure, or the like the rest in the crowd that day and hold on to all the Lord has given you?

***FINANCIAL UPDATE: As we are now 20 days into March, I am praying for 1 of our friends to pray about helping me with a special one-time gift to cover the last $9,000 of our February shortfall that we desperately need to clear up ASAP. IT IS CRITICAL FOR US TO COVER THE $9,000 STILL UNPAID FROM FEBRUARY AND I AM ASKING FOR GOD TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE TODAY ABOUT HELPING ME INSURE IT IS TAKEN CARE OF BY THE END OF BUSINESS TODAY! WILL YOU PRAY ABOUT BEING THAT ONE?

I am standing in faith that we can cover the last $9,000 today so we can being to work on the $40,000 we require for our March internet operations and the $25,000 for our March TV programs. $15,000 of our March internet obligations and $10,000 of our March TV budget are already weeks past due! That is $34,000 we need IMMEDIATELY, leaving us the final 11 days of the month to cover the final $40,000 of our March internet and TV budget!

—>I am asking 3 or 4 of our friends to PLEASE step up and help me over the weekend with a gift of $5,000-$20,000 to enable us to take care of the $34,000 we require immediately. If you can wire or direct deposit to our Wells Fargo account (if you have a Wells Fargo branch close by), or overnight to our office a check, or give via your credit care of PayPal, it would help me greatly to get these critical payments taken care of right away.

Everyone can pray, and most everyone can be like that young man and make a great sacrifice in order for us to feed the multitudes. Thank you for praying and thank you for giving! God Bless You!!!
