God’s Watchman

Leave a comment

(Isaiah 62:6-9)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, please give me the strength to live today in your Spirit. I will no longer walk in the flesh, but live in the Spirit. It is the key to me living for YOU each day. In Jesus name I pray…AMEN!

When I committed my heart and life to go into full-time ministry over 14 years ago, I accepted God’s challenge to become one of His watchmen. In ancient days, the watchman was the person who occupied a tower overlooking the city and its walls. It was his job to announce to the city when the enemy was preparing to attack.

The majority of the Old Testament prophets felt that as spiritual watchmen to the people, their warnings were for the most part ignored. They lamented the fact that the people never listened despite their prophetic insight and warnings from God.

I am sure that many of today’s spiritual leaders feel like those Old Testament prophets, as they sound the warning from God for people to turn from their sin and embrace God. That message, of course, is largely ignored. Early in my ministry, after feeling that same frustration, God showed me that it was not my job to “make people change.”

It was my job to share with them the fact that God loves them, that there is everlasting life through Jesus Christ, and that the answers they are seeking are found in Him. Period. I was to sound the alarm, blow the trumpet . . . that was my job. Only God can change a person’s heart. That is a Divine work, one only He can accomplish.

Once I came to that realization, it became easier for me to focus on what my job was and to do it to the best of my ability. God told me that I was to be a loud, and bold watchman in this new medium called the Internet that is able to reach more people, quicker than anything that has been known to man.

My friend, I try my best each day to be a “watchman” here on the Internet. I will continue to tell those on the Net that God is real, He is alive, and it is only through His son Jesus that we can enjoy a purposeful life here on earth and know God’s free gift of everlasting life.

I love you and care about you SOOOOO much!!! Let me encourage you today. Everyone that knows Christ as their Savior has been called to be God’s watchman. Just remember, God has given you the job of sharing His love and the truth of His Word. That’s it. The changes, the miracles, those will all come from God himself. You are His instrument to touch a person, He is the one that actually does the work.

Think about that today and take the pressure off yourself if the person you have been praying for isn’t getting healed, or won’t accept Christ, or their marriage isn’t restored. God is the one who will bring about the actual change. We are simply called to be faithful to share His message of hope and love in Jesus Christ.

Be one of God’s watchmen in these last days!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

A Nation in Freefall

Leave a comment

(Deuteronomy 8:19, 20)

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

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

-President Obama’s mockery of God! On Friday, the President stood in the Rose Garden and celebrated the Supreme Court ruling perverting God’s Holy Institution of Marriage. A few hours later he was in the pulpit of the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, singing “Amazing Grace,” while actually singing “Amazing Mockery!” God’s grace is amazing, but the Bible says He will NOT be mocked! For a man who mocks God’s Holy Institution of Marriage, supports the slaughter of innocent babies, and the enemies of Israel, and than stands in the pulpit of a church is disgusting. Of course, that wasn’t enough. President Obama took one last poke in the eye of God last Friday night as he lit up the White House in the rainbow colors to celebrate the perversion of marriage.

-The Oklahoma Supreme Court has demanded a monument of the Ten Commandments in the state capitol be removed.

-In the wake of the racist attack that took place in Charleston, SC a few weeks ago, several private and government organizations have been putting out the false narrative that racists are more of a threat to the nation than Muslim terrorists. This is patently false and dangerous. Just in the past few weeks, local, federal, and state law enforcement have arrested 30 Muslims at some stage of a terror plot. In that same time, there have been ZERO racists arrested. Please be in prayer for our nation’s safety over the July 4th holiday, as Homeland Security has put out various warnings of attacks by Muslims on our soil.

-In the past several years, the US has allowed apx. 100,000 Muslims to legally immigrate to the United States at a time when we are at war with Islam, whether the government wants to acknowledge it or not. When law enforcement is being tested to the max by MUSLIMS IN THIS COUNTRY who are plotting terrorist attacks, it is irresponsible and dangerous for the government to continue allowing ANY immigration by Muslims!

-The New York Times refused to publish the “Mohammed cartoons” in the aftermath of Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris a few months ago. They cited their desire to not offend Muslims who read the New York Times as the reason. However, yesterday they published a picture of ex-Pope Benedict, created out of 17,000 CONDOMS! Apparently the New York Times is concerned about offending Muslims but not Catholics!

-Pray for the Texas clerk who has refused to issue marriage licenses for same-sex couples. There are others in such positions who are also taking this stand for their faith beliefs. Pray for them!

-First NBC, now Macy’s, has severed their ties with Donald Trump. This is what happens when you take a stand that is unpopular to the media and general public, especially if your stand is a Biblical one. For the record, while he may not have articulated his views on illegal immigration perfectly, the fact remains he was 100% correct since no matter what the reason anyone who comes to this country without legal documents is…THEY ARE A CRIMINAL!

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

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

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

Christians Follow the News They Don’t Make the News

Leave a comment

(Romans 3:23)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, please be with me throughout this day and guide my thoughts, words, and deeds. Please give me the strength to live this day for you. Give me the wisdom, boldness, and courage to stand for you and your truth as the opportunities present themselves. Help me to be BOLD FOR CHRIST THIS DAY! In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

Christians follow the news, they don’t make the news!!! For the past many years now, like so many of you I have struggled with the incredible spiritual decay in our nation. I have watched the homosexual groups successfully force society to accept their perverted choice of sex as normal and even desirable, while legally being able to adopt children and now marry each other. I have watched the pro-death movement successfully insure that abortion on demand, even up to the moment of birth in many states, would remain legal, while starting to work on the other end of the age spectrum by seeking the ability to kill the elderly.

The pornographers have succeeded in gaining mainstream acceptance. Gambling in some form is now legal in all 50 states. The current President got an incredible number of people claiming to be Christians voting for him, not once but twice, despite the fact he opposes God on every spiritual issue there is, whose political ideology was shaped by socialists and other radicals, who has never even run a lemonade stand or generated a dime of profit in his life, has done serious damage to our economy since he took office, and has decimated our foreign policy putting this nation in great danger.

How has this all happened???

All of these other groups make the news while Christians simply follow the news. Let me explain. The homosexual groups, the pro-death folks, the pornographers, the gambling lobby, this current President, have all masterfully used the media to make their case and influence public opinion. The fact is, Christians, despite having the numbers, simply have NO VOICE in the mainstream marketplace in which to influence the hearts and minds of the masses. Our message is rarely if ever heard. In the meantime, the message of those who oppose God and the Truth of the Bible blast away 24/7/365!

Want a great example. Polls have been taken of youth groups in solid Bible believing and teaching denominations like the Assemblies of God and the Southern Baptists regarding homosexuality. Well over half of the kids polled feel there is nothing wrong with the sin of homosexuality and that people of the same sex should be allowed to marry. These are kids who for the most part are from Christian homes, grew up in the church, who know what God says on this issue. It is the incredible job the pro-homosexual groups have done over the past 20 years to brainwash society into accepting their perverted choice of sex.

Sadly, the few major media ministries that exist in Christendom are geared to preaching to the choir on the Christian networks where 98% of the viewers are already Christians. They are all designed for the Christian media that has virtually zero impact on our culture. The few who do venture a bit into the secular media share watered down, feel-good messages carefully crafted to not offend people since they look to their audience to send them money, buy their books and resources, and come to their events. They have forsaken the Truth for slick marketing campaigns. None of these major media ministries make news, they have simply opted out of the marketplace for the comfort and profitability of the Christian trough.

There are still many great churches out there today. They do a wonderful job of ministering to their people, reaching out to help those in need in a variety of ways, but the fact is they aren’t really positioned to make news and thus they really aren’t able to have much of an influence on the culture at large. This is why despite all the churches, all the Christian media, all the Christian publications, all the Christian music, none of it has much of an effect on the culture at large since it is virtually all geared to those who are already Christians and not designed to battle for the hearts and minds of the masses outside the four walls of the church.

I have shared with you that we are in a battle for the soul of this nation. Our only hope for this land is to see the people repent, turn back to God and to Biblical Truth. We have the better percentage of two full generations now who have never been to church and don’t even know God. This nation operates in total rebellion to God and His Word and we are seeing the beginning of His judgment thru the economy right now. God is going to continue to punish our nation for its gross sins and wickedness, and we will feel His wrath if we don’t quickly turn back to Him.

The Bible states that the wages of sin is death, that you reap what you sow. Daily we see the destroyed lives of people who have bought into the lies of this world. I feel that people are aching for real Truth. The fact is, Liveprayer has developed over these past 16 years the media vehicle to have that presence in the marketplace to influence the hearts and minds of the masses for Christ. This isn’t about money or I would have done what everyone else does and simply go to the Christian media, ask for money, sell products, and watch the world around me destroyed while millions needlessly end up in hell for all eternity.

Of course, the secular media is no friend of God or His Truth. It has long been a tool of satan to bring the lies of the enemy to the masses. However, the opportunity exists to buy our way into the mainstream on a daily basis to bring the unadulterated Truth of the Word to the masses, to call this nation to repentance, and lead the lost and hurting to faith in Jesus Christ. Christendom needs that bold, visible, uncompromising presence. Christians need to be able to come together as ONE as the other groups do. We are currently so fragmented, our voice simply isn’t heard. This is the vehicle that give us that voice and allows us to exert our influence over the culture like the groups who oppose God do.

I love you and care about you so much. I am asking you to pray with me today. There are millions of people out there who love the Lord, who are simply looking for a voice for God’s Truth and a move they can be part of to make their life count for Christ. With Liveprayer.com and the Liveprayer TV program “live” 2 hours every Monday thru Friday, for $65,000 a month, just under $2,200 a day, we have the proven ministry vehicles to pray for people in their hour of need, minister to those needs, bring the lost to faith in Jesus Christ, and help lead our nation back to God and His Truth!

This coming January, the Liveprayer TV program will be syndicated nationally “live” for an hour every Monday thru Friday, and will generate most of the funds we need to operate the ministry!!!

In the world’s economy, $65,000 a month is not much money, especially when you consider that it is the seed to help lead this nation back to God and Biblical Truth while bringing hope to millions and leading lost souls to faith in Jesus Christ. Pray with me today that the Lord will move on the hearts of those who have been richly blessed in this lifetime and want to use some of what God has entrusted to them to impact lives for eternity as well as the spiritual course of our nation. We have the vehicle, we need the fuel!! *Everyone knows someone. Pray today about who you know who may be able to help me. The time is short, our hour is at hand.

I can only encourage you today. God has raised up Liveprayer for this moment in human history. God gave me the vision for the Jonah Project to lead this nation back to God and His Truth. It is in place, we are adding people daily, and now is your opportunity to take a real stand for Christ. God is calling you today, wants to use you today to help bring revival to this nation. yes, eventfully we will be judged for our sins and wickedness, but I believe we can stay God’s hand of judgment just like Nineveh did.

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

Please pray today about signing up and being part of the Jonah Project, God’s vehicle to lead this nation back to Himself, to His Truth, and millions to faith in Christ. Go to: http://www.liveprayer.com/jonah and what the 7 min. vision video, get sign up. Also, get this Devotional to everyone that you know and share the link to the Jonah Project with every person you can communicate with. This is the answer for this nation and for millions of people who are looking for answers and hope in their life. This nation is in spiritual freefall and turning back to God and His Truth is our only hope!!! IT IS TIME WE START MAKING THE NEWS INSTEAD OF FOLLOWING THE NEWS!!!

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

Why the Republican Party and Christians have Both Failed

Leave a comment

(Proverbs 29:18)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help me to stand strong in these difficult days. I know that in the end, YOU…and YOU alone will have the final word. Give me boldness and courage to stand for you as evil abounds. In the name of Jesus I pray..AMEN!!!

The similarities between the Republican Party and Christians, and why both have FAILED! This Devotional today has ZERO to do with politics, but in light of the recent events and so much attention being paid to the coming 2016 Presidential election, I find many incredible similarities between the failures of the Republican Party and true Biblical Christians. Let me say that BOTH have failed because they have, 1) NO VISION, 2) their real goal is simply to make money and not see any real change, 3) they have turned into nothing but entertainment vehicles.

The Bible says in Proverbs that, “Where there is no vision, the people perish!” The biggest reason the Republicans lost the last two Presidential elections and despite controlling the House and Senate have accomplished NOTHING is because the party as a whole has NO VISION! Never once has there been any sort of vision for the country articulated for people to hear, understand, and buy into.

The church has failed for the EXACT SAME REASON!!! Other than Liveprayer, there is not ONE national leader who has articulated ANY sort of vision for this nation to turn back to God and His Truth with a legitimate plan other than to pray. Prayer is a great first step, but at some point there has to be a true vision with a supporting plan to see that vision come to fruition!

Making money is the only real goal of any political party or entity. Sadly, that has now become the only real goal of the church. Churches and major ministries raise tens of millions annually in order to build and upkeep huge complexes of bricks and mortar, hire huge staffs of people, and in many cases, pay the top people incredible salaries and benefits. Private jets, multiple mansions, new Bentley’s, are the norm in the world of big time Christendom. The world has correctly identified much of what is done as nothing but a “money hustle” and they are 100% correct!

Politics when I was growing up in the 60’s and 70’s was mainly about ideology. While that element still exists today, over the past 16 years politics has become largely about entertainment. The Republican Party really led the way in the world of “political entertainment,” though the Democrats are quickly catching up. Never forget for a second that Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Michael Savage, Mark Levine, Fox News, Ann Coulter, Karl Rove, Dick Morris, new groups like Freedom Works, Newsmax and the rest of the conservative internet world, are first and foremost..ENTERTAINERS! THEY HAVE PROVEN TO HOLD NO POWER TO CHANGE THE POLITICAL COURSE OF THIS NATION!

There are also many high profile Christian/political groups like Focus on the Family, The Family Research Council, men like Jay Sekulow, Ralph Reed, Mark DeMoss, all who have put politics ahead of the Gospel for money, power, and influence. These people and organizations make their millions REGARDLESS of who wins, of who is in office. Over the past 6 years, without shame they haven’t changed a thing, and in most cases have doubled down on their failed acts! However, don’t ever forget, between their books, conferences, and other money-making opportunities, they still make millions win or lose!

Sadly, with the advent of Christian TV and radio over the past 40 years, much of Christendom is now nothing but “spiritual entertainment.” Churches have been converted into great performing arts theaters where you are entertained for an hour each Sunday. The top names on Christian TV are treated like Hollywood celebrities. They use their influence over millions primarily to enrich themselves and further their own kingdom, NOT the Kingdom of God!

The results for Christians has been even more devastating since souls are at stake! Christians and our worldview are now marginalized and clearly no longer the view held by the majority in this nation. We have now been totally frozen out of the secular media, unless you are a gutless wonder like Joel Osteen trying to sell your latest book and they know you won’t say anything they deem outrageous like “you will die and go to hell unless you come to know Jesus by faith as your Savior.” Worst of all, we have clearly lost the culture and have virtually zero impact on the world around us any longer.

We now live in a nation where the legalized slaughter of an innocent baby is called a “woman’s right.” Gay marriage is called “marriage equality” and now legal in all states. The CHOICE of homosexual behavior is now viewed as normal and acceptable. In addition, boys can now become girls and girls can now become boys, and if you dare say anything negative you are labeled as a hate monger. Hosts on major TV networks openly root for a cheer for and promote the radical homosexual agenda and the legalized killing of innocent babies! Confused men and women who don’t even know their gender are considered “normal.”

The better percentage of the last two generations who have never even been to a church. A majority of those who do are either in some liberal denomination that accepts and even glorifies sins like homosexuality and abortion, or in churches who are part of these man-made marketing strategies like Purpose Driven/Seeker/Emerging Church/Prosperity Gospel, which are designed to fill the pews with warm bodies not converts, that preach a soft, watered-down, motivational message so nobody is offended (and they come back next Sunday to put their money in the offering plate).

Those who have grown in influence due this void of true Christian leaders are false religions like Islam, the New Age universalism that people like Oprah and Deepak Chopra peddle which lie to people that everyone will get to Heaven, and satanic cults like Scientology and Mormonism. Probably the most dangerous man alive today is Glenn Beck. Not because of his political ideology, but because he uses his various media platforms to attract people through politics and than lies he is a Christian and talks of God and Jesus, though the god and jesus of Beck’s cult are NOT the God and Jesus of the Bible!.

The answer my friend is simple. IF, and it is a big IF, Christians are going to reclaim the culture, reclaim our rightful place as the conscience of this nation, save this nation from God’s wrath and judgment that has already began by leading this great land back to the Almighty and His Truth, we must do three things.

The first is VISION. As we are currently under God’s wrath and judgment for the gross sins of this nation like the fact we slaughter over 4,000 innocent babies every 24 hours, we have perverted God’s Holy Institutions of Marriage and the Family, and that we have bowed down and worshipped every false god and idol man has created in his evil imagination. The ONLY vision is to have a “Nineveh Moment” and turn this nation back to God and Biblical Truth.

Of course, Liveprayer not only has articulated that vision for several years now, but has put the pieces in place to see it happen thru the Jonah Project ( http://www.liveprayer.com/jonah/ ) and the Remnant (
http://www.liveprayer.com/remnant.cfm ). The key piece will become a reality this January with the Liveprayer TV program available in the US and around the world!

The second is a pure purpose. Money is NOT a pure purpose, but a necessity to get the word out! Raising money is something many have been able to accomplish without any help from God. The pure purpose is clearly to see this nation turn back to God and Biblical Truth while bringing hope to the hurting and salvation through faith in Jesus Christ to the lost. This is what Liveprayer has been about for the 16 years we have been online and 12 years on TV.

The third is a higher goal. There are MANY entertainers. They come and go. One is hot today, forgotten tomorrow. The higher goal is not to achieve fame and notoriety, but to advance the Kingdom of God. Since day one, Liveprayer has been about one thing, lifting up the name of Jesus so that all men will be drawn unto Him! That is our one and only goal!

I love you and care about you so much. Over the past 16 yrs I have warned people often this day would come. It is now here. We no longer have the numbers. What numbers we do have are woefully divided. We no longer drive the culture, the culture now drives the church. Our only hope, our only answer, is to get back to the basics.

There has to be a clear vision. While it takes money to operate, it is only to finance the vision in order to see that vision fulfilled. The only one who is to be glorified is the Lord. That is the answer and the only hope we have to see this nation saved from experiencing the full wrath and judgment of Almighty God!!! Together, we WILL lead this nation back to God and His Truth!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

A New Constitutional Right will be the Start of Silencing the Gospel Immediately

Leave a comment

(Isaiah 62:1)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Please Lord, give me the strength that when tested, I will not be silent nor will I be afraid to tell YOUR TRUTH! Give me courage, give me strength, and let me stand strong for you no matter what the personal consequences! In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

“For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet, till her vindication shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch.” Isaiah 62:1

A new Constitutional right most people have NO CLUE will be the start of silencing the Gospel… IMMEDIATELY! My friend, today or by Monday, the landscape to simply share the Truth of God’s Word in this nation is about to change dramatically. This is not hyperbole or fear-mongering, this is exactly what I warned you over a decade ago was coming! This is the time of persecution I have told you was coming where the battle lines will finally be drawn in real time, and you will not only have your own personal faith tested, but you will get to see with your own eyes who the real men of God are and who the pretenders are!!!

When the Supreme Court rules that perverting God’s Holy Institution of Marriage by allowing men to marry men, women to marry women, is a Constitutional right, that automatically makes anyone who holds to Biblical marriage of a man and woman only a bigot, hate monger, but worse, ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE LAW! The culture has already deemed those who speak out against the sin of homosexuality or same-sex marriage as guilty of hatred and bigotry, but after this ruling, they will be taking an ILLEGAL position since same-sex marriage will be a protected Constitutional right.

The ramifications? They will start with easy targets like me. I am not part of a denomination. I am not politically connected. I am foolish enough to go into the secular media to bring God’s Truth to the lost masses. I will not compromise the Truth of God’s Word. For years I have been on the “hate map” of the Southern Poverty Law Center as a “hate group.” Why? Because I actually preach the truth about the sin of homosexuality and the false religion of Islam, I am listed with true hate groups that have histories of inciting violence and espousing true hatred.
(http://www.splcenter.org/hate-map s=FL)

Now some people may not think this is a big deal, but you couldn’t be more wrong. While you may not have heard of SPLC, they are the leading group in the nation that tracks individuals and groups they claim are involved in hatred, bigotry, intolerance, and acts of domestic terror. This organization has deep connections with law enforcement and the Department of Justice. It is called on regularly to testify before Congress, and any time there is some sort of hate-crime, act of domestic terror, top officials are all over the news channels. During the Charleston killings and anytime there is a race-related incident, their leaders are on CNN, MSNBC, and other major media outlets. The SPLC is very well financed from liberal foundations and donors who fight for special rights for homosexuals, Muslims, illegal immigrants.

Also targeted with be churches. The fact is, in today’s church climate 50% of the churches have NOTHING to worry about. They have already sold out the Lord and Biblical Truth for this godless culture as they make a mockery of the Lord by supporting to varying degrees the radical homosexual agenda including gay marriage, abortion, and other sin. They no longer preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but a perverted socially accepted gospel. Those churches who DO stand for Biblical Truth however, will be targeted. My guess is those who preach against the Constitutionally protected right of same-sex marriage will be threatened with the removal of their tax-exempt status. You will see very quickly which churches are true churches of Jesus Christ and those who are a stench in the nostrils of God!

But wait my friend, It won’t stop with the churches. They will target ALL Christian organizations who DARE to preach against the Constitutionally protected right of same-sex marriage. That includes any type of Christian ministry, Christian schools, Christian music companies, Christian publishers, Christian TV and radio. They will all be threatened by the government to silence any condemnation of the Constitutionally protected right of same-sex marriage or suffer the consequences. How can they do that? Threatening to take away the 501 (c)(3) for those who are non-profit. Threatening to not give any government backed loans for students at Christian schools. Don’t forget the FCC (government) controls the licenses for all radio and TV stations.

In the meantime, in this climate of fear even MORE pastors and ministries will soft-sell the truth and avoid talking about the issues that need to be addressed. The vast majority of pastors and ministries have already self-policed themselves to avoid having their little empires disrupted. However, after the Supreme Court rules making gay marriage a Constitutionally protected right, more will realize that it simply isn’t worth standing up to the government and will capitulate. Now can you see why I rail against this gutless generation of pastors and ministries with large platforms who use it to build their kingdom and not God’s?

Speaking of gutless ministers, I find it ironic that I was reading an article how “cotton-candy” Joel Osteen is bragging about Muslims coming to his church. I have no doubt about that! After all, even Muslims want to be filthy rich as Osteen promises everyone can be…if they buy his books! The fact is, there is NOTHING that Osteen will ever say in a service that would ever offend a Muslim, atheist, or satanist. Worse, like most pastors, nobody will ever hear the clear presentation of the Gospel or have an clear invitation to come to faith in Jesus!

By the way, this administration has paved the way for the rise of Islam in this nation like never before. President Obama has NO PROBLEM ripping an isolated case of racism in South Carolina and treat it like an epidemic, while never commenting ONCE WORD on the woman a MUSLIM BEHEADED at a work place in Oklahoma 10 months ago, attempting to behead a second woman until he was shot, not killed, by a gun carrying executive of the company. As much as people are lobbying to label the shootings in Charleston “terrorism,” they have refused to label the Oklahoma beheading by a Muslim a “terrorist act!”

Last night, President Obama celebrated the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan with a big dinner in the White House. At the President’s table were Muslims who are on record stating that Israel should be destroyed. During the dinner, President Obama stated that, “American’s have a distorted view of Muslims.” I totally agree. Most American’s have been fed this whitewashed version of Islam by the useful idiots in the media, a false narrative shaped by this administration and Muslim advocacy groups like CAIR.

Most American’s have NO CLUE the literal danger this nation is in, a danger stated by many in our intelligence community unlike anyhting since 9/11. However, anyone who dares to speak out against Islam will be labeled as “Islamaphobes” and demonized by the media and groups like my friends at the SPLC who recently identified 12 woman such as Pam Geller, Ann Coulter, Judge Jeannine Pirro, Brigitte Gabriel, as inciting hatred towards Muslims! (
http://www.judicialwatch.org/blog/2015/06/splc-issues-hit-list-of-u-s-women-against-sharia-law/ )

I love and care about you so much. I have done my best to warn you this day was coming…over 10 years ago! Pray for me. You know me well enough by now to know I will never back down! They can jail me, cut my tongue out, I will still find a way to share God’s Truth the Gospel of Jesus Christ with this lost and hurting world.

Please, PRAY about helping me with a gift today. There is NO REASON I need to worry about covering the $65,000 I need each month simply to do this work God has called me to. There is NOTHING in that amount for me other than basic living expenses, and because I actually do the work, don’t use your money to enrich the ministry by buying property, buildings, or foolish luxuries like Bentley’s and private jets, over 93 cents of every dollar you give to God’s work here at Liveprayer goes to get the message out to the masses! NOW MORE THAN EVER I NEED YOU TO STAND WITH ME!!!

We are at a major crossroads in this nation as the Supreme Court within hours will make it a Constitutional right for people of the same-sex to marry. That is not the issue. The issue is that it will than give the government the ability to work on silencing ALL who dare to preach the Truth of God’s Word and the Gospel! Liveprayer will never compromise the Truth of God’s Word nor be silenced in sharing the fact that the only hope for each person and for this nation is JESUS!

The People of God in the Book of Haggai were Exactly Like the People of God Today

Leave a comment

(Haggai 1:3-11)

***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!

As I was reading the Bible the other night, I was reading the Book of Haggai and realized that people have never really changed even after all of these years. How much the people of God spoken about in the Book of Haggai were EXACTLY like the people of God today. Let me set the context for you. The year is 520 BC. King Darius, the Medo-Persian king allowed a remnant of the children of Israel to return to Jerusalem after being held in captivity for 70 years by the Babylonians so that they could rebuild the Temple.

However, the people of God were not as interested in rebuilding the house of God as they were in building their own houses. God spoke through His prophet, Haggai, to let them know that because of their selfishness, they were missing the blessings of God. That is what I want to share with you today. How because of our selfishness, we are living beneath God’s blessings. How we become so focused on OUR LIFE, on OUR GOALS, on OUR DREAMS, on OUR DESIRES, we have forsaken the work of God and are missing His blessings.

There is not one person reading this today that doesn’t want God’s blessings in their life. Even those who don’t believe there is a God, still want His blessings. The reality is, GOD WANTS TO BLESS YOU! Jesus said, “it is your Father’s pleasure to give you the Kingdom.” But just like there are natural laws that govern the earth, there are spiritual laws that govern the Kingdom of God. Let me give you the key to God’s blessings. GOD CANNOT AND WILL NOT BLESS DISOBEDIENCE.

Let me say that one more time. GOD CANNOT AND WILL NOT BLESS DISOBEDIENCE. If you want God’s blessings, the first thing that you must do is live in accordance with His Word. The Bible tells us that “to obey is better than sacrifice.” God said, “Oh that their hearts would be inclined to fear me and keep all my commands always, so that it might go well with them and their children forever.” GOD’S BLESSINGS FLOW FROM OUR OBEDIENCE!!!

So let’s go one step further and look at the very first commandment. “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” Most of us feel pretty safe that we obey this commandment. After all, we don’t worship the sun, or the clouds, or a chair, or a tree. We don’t have hundreds of gods that we pray to. But I want to tell you today that whenever you put yourself before God, you have literally taken Him off HIS throne and put yourself on it! You have said, “my will…not thy will be done.”

How can we live in blatant disobedience to the very first commandment and still expect God to bless us? He can’t, and He won’t! That is why the Bible says, “you expected much, but see, it turned out to be little.” If we truly want God’s blessings, the first step is to put God back in His rightful place, on His throne as the Lord of our life and live in obedience to what He calls us to do each day.

I love you and care about you so much. Today’s scripture really shows us how empty this life can be without God’s blessings. It is no wonder why so many turn to drugs, alcohol, sex, food, money…anything to escape. It is frustrating to live without God’s blessings. I am not talking so much about the material blessings as I am the SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS. Don’t you realize that there is no amount of money to buy true peace, not enough gold in the world to buy real joy, not enough real estate on the planet to buy the abundant life that God has offered us. What price can you put on hope? This world is lost, hurting, and without hope because it is living without God and without His blessings.

I will be praying for you today to accept the same challenge that the prophet Haggai gave the children of Israel 2,500 years ago. Start rebuilding the house of God in your heart. Take the focus off of building YOUR HOUSE, and put it on building GOD’S HOUSE. Take the focus off of what YOU want to do, and put it on what God wants you to do. God wants to bless you abundantly so that you eat and are full, so that you drink and are never thirsty. God wants to bless YOU TODAY! Isn’t it time to stop living beneath His blessings, and start receiving all of the blessings that HE has for your life?

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

Bridging the Gap between Our Unseen Faith and the Real Word We Living in Each Day

Leave a comment

(Proverbs 78:11, James 1:5)

***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!

One of my number one goals every day is to bridge the gap between our unseen faith and the very real world we find ourselves living in each day. If there is one area the church as a whole has failed in, and why so many find little relevance in many churches, is because of the failure to take the very real day-to-day life experiences we have and put them in the context of our faith in the Lord.

As you know, if you have read many of my Devotionals, I will not back off even the most controversial issues, since it is usually THOSE issues many struggle with and need spiritual guidance in. One of those issues is Internet romances.

I discussed in the past the trap of Internet chat rooms, instant messaging, Facebook, and other social media sites, and how easily married people fall into sin in this area. Today, however, I want to address those who are single, and the wisdom of Internet romances. First, there is NO SCRIPTURE that says “thou shalt not have an Internet romance”. The spiritual application here is from a wisdom standpoint. After all, it is God who gives us wisdom, and like all gifts He gives, we are to use it.

I realize that there may be some of you reading this Devotional right now that met your spouse over the Internet, you developed a spiritual foundation in your relationship, dated over a period of time, had confirmation in both of your lives from God that this was part of His plan for your life, and have a very healthy and happy marriage.

There are always exceptions but I can tell you from dealing with this issue over the last 14+ years, having seen thousands of emails from men and women, Internet romances are dangerous and usually NOT a good idea no matter how “wonderful” even the Christian dating services want you to believe it is!

You have two basic problems with Internet romances. First is the long distance factor. Second is the fantasy problem. The problem with long distance romances is the fact that without being in the physical presence of a person, it is very difficult to develop any chemistry, develop a bond, and really get to know each other well enough to make a wise decision on whether this is really a lifetime relationship.

Again, I know there are many examples where two people have made it work, but trust me, those are exceptions and not the rule. Two people who potentially may spend the rest of their life together need a period of time to see if they can build a spiritual foundation to their relationship, to see if they can communicate, to have the time to be able to properly hear from God about His will for them. There is NO substitution for spending time together.

With the Internet, you have a blend of fantasy and reality. When your main form of communication is email, Instant Messages, text, and chat rooms, you are in a blended world. You build a mental image of who this person is with little basis in reality. Of course, via email, they are PERFECT. They literally become, to some extent, a creation of your imagination. This is NOT healthy and extremely dangerous.

Some of the frequent problems I encounter daily in regard to this issue are these. Many of the “single” men and women you are dealing with are NOT single, but married. Of course, you don’t find out about this until you are very well into your “cyber relationship.” Another major problem is no matter how spiritual your conversations may be, at some point, sex enters into the mix. This often leads to involvement in cyber sex and usually advances into phone sex.

The biggest problem, however, is at some point the “relationship” advances to a point where you actually meet each other in person. Usually you have had many months of contact with this person, you have created in your mind who this person is, and there is an incredible thrill and anticipation in actually meeting ‘real time’.

Many men AND women are predators are masters at using the Internet to find their prey. Because you DON’T really know them, since you have never spent any time together, since you have fantasized who this person is in your mind without really knowing for sure, you have left yourself wide open to incredible problems.

I love you so very much, and I really do care about you. After these 16 years you are like part of my family. The things I have shared with you today come from dealing with real people, many who have had their lives turned upside down from Internet romances. I realize many of you are lonely, and thus you become easy prey for those men and women trolling the Internet for someone to take advantage of. But you are not using wisdom, and you are playing a very dangerous game.

The end results of most of these situations range from people being used sexually then dumped, people being taken advantage of financially, marriages that end in divorce, and in one case years ago…death! Internet romances are NOT a good idea. They are NOT wise!

You are much better served doing it the old-fashioned way. Meeting someone in a real face-to-face meeting. Dating. Building a spiritual foundation together over time. Ultimately, putting yourselves in a situation where God can confirm to both of you that this is part of His plan for your life. God is the one who gives us wisdom. In regard to Internet romances, use wisdom and pray long and hard before you ever get involved in one!

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

Bill Keller
