God’s Plan for Marriage

Leave a comment

(Genesis 1:27, 2:24, 4:19; Deuteronomy 17:17; 1 Kings 11:3; 1 Timothy 3:2,12)

***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!!!

When you read God’s Word, you read about great men of faith, men who lived their lives for God like Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Solomon. These men did great things for God and are used as examples of how to live a Godly life. These men were also richly blessed by God. However, they all had one glaring issue that cannot be ignored. They all had multiple wives! This fact often confuses people who are curious how these great men of God could be so blessed but living in blatant rebellion to God in this area of their life. The reality is, they forfeited many of the blessings they should have had because of this sin in their life.

The Bible is perfectly clear about God’s Holy Institution of Marriage. It is one man, with one woman, for one lifetime. God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Eve and Julie. Or Adam and Eve, Julie, Cathy, and Susan. God’s plan for marriage was one man and one woman. In Genesis 2:24, God’s intention is clearly presented when He says, “They shall be one flesh.”

In giving the qualifications for a king in Deuteronomy Chapter 17, Verse 17, God clearly states that the king was not to have multiple wives. In giving the qualifications for those who lead the church in 1 Timothy 3:2 and 12 and in Titus 1:6, the Bible states that these men are to have only one wife. This passage in the Greek is not only speaking of someone who has not been divorced, but makes it clear that having multiple wives disqualified someone to be in a leadership position.

You actually don’t have to get very far into human history to see God’s plan for marriage perverted. The first Biblical account of men taking multiple wives is recorded in Genesis 4:19 where a man named Lamech took two wives. Having multiple wives throughout history has always been a mark of nations, people groups, who lived their lives in rebellion to the God of the Bible.Sadly, some have tried to justify polygamy by pointing to men of God in the Bible like Abraham and others who had multiple wives. They are 100% wrong and there is NO WAY to justify polygamy by using the Bible.

Let me make sure you understand something perfectly clear. God never permitted at any time for men to have multiple wives. When we read about Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Solomon, and others taking multiple wives, we also read about the consequences of this sin in their life. Don’t forget what I tell you often. Our obedience to God and His Word brings blessings, our rebellion to God and His Word brings consequences! There will ALWAYS be consequences when you choose to live in rebellion to God. Even great men of God like Abraham, like Solomon, were not immune to the consequences when they chose to sin against God.

One of the things I love about God’s Word is that it does not try to hide the failings of men who did great things for God in their lives. Look at David. His sin with Bathsheba could have been omitted, but God allowed his sin to be exposed to all of the generations through His Word. The consequences of Abraham’s sin in taking another wife are still being felt in the world today since the Jewish people are directly linked back to his son with Sarah, Isaac, and the Arab people directly linked back to his son with Hagar, Ishmael. When you read about Abraham having to send Hagar and her son away due to the conflict with Sara and Isaac, I am not sure we can begin to fully comprehend the human emotions of such a tragic event.

Then you have Solomon. As I shared with you the other day in speaking of Solomon and his summation of what this life is about in Ecclesiastes 12:13, I have carefully studied his life. Solomon is a very complex individual and a classic study of someone who gets so caught up in the success and allure of this world they forsake God. Solomon followed God since his youth, became the King of Israel, finished building the Temple of God in Jerusalem started by his father David. He is probably best known for his incredible wisdom. As you read about the life of Solomon you can see the hand and blessings of God upon him.

Despite having God’s favor and blessings, Solomon allowed the temporal things of this world to take priority over his commitment to God. Being allowed by God to gain victory over the enemies of Israel, Solomon took part in a custom of that day where the conquering king, Solomon, was given the daughter of the defeated king to be his wife. So Solomon not only began taking multiple wives (against God’s admonition in Deuteronomy 17:17), these were women from heathen nations that did not know or honor the God of Israel and brought their false gods with them into the marriage. Over time, Solomon ended up with 700 wives and 300 concubines. (Personal observation: It is clear that by this time in his life, Solomon used up all of his wisdom, since having one wife is a full time commitment. 700? The thought makes my head hurt.)

One reason God says in His Word in 2 Corinthians 6:14 “do not be yoked together with unbelievers” is because of the negative influence your unbelieving spouse will have on your faith. Solomon was a great example of a man who knew, followed, and served God, but became influenced by the false gods and idols of his foreign wives. This is exactly why God told the children of Israel to not take “strange wives,” or wives from nations that worshiped false gods. At a time in his life when Solomon should have been enjoying the blessings of God, instead he was dealing with the consequences of his rebellion to God from having multiple and foreign wives. His life actually ends with little fanfare and rather sadly due to his sin. SIN ALWAYS COSTS, AND ALWAYS COSTS MORE THAN WE EXPECT TO PAY!

I love you and care about you so much. Not only is polygamy against the law in the United States, it has never been a practice of most in our culture. However, there are those who advocate having multiple wives, and there are other nations around the world in which it is an acceptable practice. Due to the fact we have some of the great men of God in the Bible who took multiple wives, I thought it was important to deal with this issue and insure you understood that this was never God’s plan for marriage and those who take multiple wives are clearly in rebellion to God and His Word.

I will be praying for you today. I want to specifically pray for those who are married today. Marriage is God’s Holy Institution. It is a wonderful gift from God and his plan for most people’s lives. It is one of the most difficult things in the world for two people to become one. But with the Lord at the center of your lives together, it can be the most incredible and special thing in your life other than your relationship with Christ. For those who are going through a problem in your marriage today, I will be praying for God to bring healing and restoration to you remarriage. For those who are not having problems, I will pray that you continue to be richly blessed in your marriage each day.

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Remain True to the Faith

Leave a comment

(Acts 14:22)

***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!!!

“…strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith. “We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,” they said.” Acts 14:22

Remain true to the faith. Along our journey of faith, God knows when we need encouragement, when our flesh is weak and we need to be challenged to press on. I am no different than you or any other man. I have my times of weakness, my moments of doubt, those days when the battles are simply too fierce. Satan is only too happy to seize those moments as he did when Jesus was in the wilderness for 40 days and nights. He comes to tempt me, acting as my friend who is concerned about my well being, giving me all the justification I need to take my eyes off the prize. This is how satan will come to you as well. Listen to me carefully. SATAN IS A LIAR! HE IS NOT OUR FRIEND! HIS GOAL IS TO KILL, STEAL AND DESTROY….YOU AND ME!!!

Several months ago a dear friend sent me an excerpt from the writings of that great preacher and theologian from the 1800’s Charles Spurgeon. As God’s timing is always perfect, it came at a moment when I needed some encouragement. The weight of the work was extremely heavy and the flesh weary that day. I sat at my desk and read Spurgeon’s’ words and tears literally ran down my cheeks as I was read about my life, my battles, my challenges in his poignant words. I have printed out that passage he wrote and keep it with me.

I refer to it often since it so perfectly sums up my life. It also perfectly sums up the life of any follower of Christ who is sold out to serve the Lord until their dying breath.

I want to share those powerful words with you today. I pray that they will inspire and encourage you as much as they have me so many days. They really sum up what this journey is all about. There is perhaps no greater challenge we have as followers of Christ than to remain true to the faith. So many over the years have been like Demas who we read about in the Book of Acts. Demas was a man serving God, but decided to turn back to the world. In those moments of temptation I often think back to the words of Peter. When asked by Jesus if he would turn away from the Lord Peter boldly responded in John 6:68, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life!” That is why the child of God presses on, remains true to the faith. To whom shall we go?

Spurgeon writes: “Perseverance is the badge of true saints. The Christian life is not a beginning only in the ways of God, but also a continuance in the same as long as life lasts. It is with a Christian as it was with the great Napoleon: he said, “Conquest has made me what I am, and conquest must maintain me.” So, under God, dear brother in the Lord, conquest has made you what you are, and conquest must sustain you. Your motto must be, “Excelsior.” He only is a true conqueror, and shall be crowned at the last, who continueth till war’s trumpet is blown no more. Perseverance is, therefore, the target of all our spiritual enemies. The world does not object to your being a Christian for a time, if she can but tempt you to cease your pilgrimage, and settle down to buy and sell with her in Vanity Fair. The flesh will seek to ensnare you, and to prevent your pressing on to glory. “It is weary work being a pilgrim; come, give it up. Am I always to be mortified? Am I never to be indulged? Give me at least a furlough from this constant warfare.” Satan will make many a fierce attack on your perseverance; it will be the mark for all his arrows. He will strive to hinder you in service: he will insinuate that you are doing no good; and that you want rest. He will endeavour to make you weary of suffering, he will whisper, “Curse God, and die.” Or he will attack your steadfastness: “What is the good of being so zealous? Be quiet like the rest; sleep as do others, and let your lamp go out as the other virgins do.” Or he will assail your doctrinal sentiments: “Why do you hold to these denominational creeds? Sensible men are getting more liberal; they are removing the old landmarks: fall in with the times.” Wear your shield, Christian, therefore, close upon your armour, and cry mightily unto God, that by His Spirit you may endure to the end.”

AMEN…AMEN….AND AMEN!!!

I love you and care about you so much. I pray today that you will pray over these powerful words, reading them over and over. They sum up so eloquently the challenge of remaining true to the faith. The challenge to not turn away from serving the Lord after a season to go back into the world. The temptation to indulge the flesh. The lies that the work you do for the Lord is all in vain and makes no difference. The physical battle of fighting weariness and fatigue. The war against apathy and political correctness. These are all very real issues those who serve the Lord must face along their journey through life as they strive to remain true to the faith.

I pray today that these words will challenge and encourage you in your personal journey. It is our steadfastness and perseverance that satan will assail. A Christian does not scare satan, however, a Christian who is steadfast and perseveres no matter what life throws his way is the enemy’s worst nightmare!

I hear every day from people who tell me they have followed the exploits of Liverpayer over these many years and have been encouraged by the fact no matter what challenges come our way we keep pressing forward, faithfully serving the Lord and trusting Him each step of the way, and then see the incredible fruit from that steadfastness and perseverance. I try my best daily to set an example for you that Jesus has already won the victory, our responsibility is to simply remain true to the faith!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Today is the Day the World Celebrates Father’s Day

Leave a comment

(Ephesians 6:4)

***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!

Today is the day the world celebrates Father’s Day. In our busy lives, it is good that we are forced to take a moment and recognize our dads. I had a wonderful father who unfortunately passed away when I was 16. Even though I missed sharing those young adult years with my dad, it was his love and nurturing in the early years of my life that helped build the spiritual foundation in my life. After praying about today’s Devotional, the Lord has directed me to use it as a special encouragement to the dads out there.

How often do we take what dad does for granted? There are Godly men out there who are the spiritual heads of their homes. They work hard to provide the income needed to sustain day to day life. They love and honor their wife. They realize their children are gifts from God and help nurture and mold their lives. These dads realize that serving God is their divine purpose and being the head of their home is their first and most important ministry.

Today is a day to make sure dad knows just how much we love and appreciate him.

For those dads out there that are working hard to be the kind of dad I just described, know that you are in my prayers. Know that each day as you spend that special time alone with the Lord, He will encourage you, prepare you, and make you adequate for that day. You are on the path God wants you to be on as you strive each day to serve Him, making your wife and children your number one priorities. Balance is one of the biggest hurdles you face each day, and I pray the Lord will help you find that perfect balance between work, home, serving Him, and relaxing.

The other big hurdle is being able to give God control. Having so much responsibility each day, letting go and really trusting God at certain time is not easy. Just remember, in John 15:5 it says, “Without me you can do nothing.” God has given you great talents, great gifts, but without the Lord’s strength, and He being in charge, it won’t make any difference. Make your faith real as you learn to trust Him more each day.

I recognize today that there are also many dads who aren’t the kind of dad I described. Unless someone is totally committed and surrendered to the Lord, overseeing the responsibilities of marriage and children often suffer. Without the Lord leading your life, getting caught up in all of the traps of this world happen frequently, and life really never makes much sense. The importance of being a husband or a father, doesn’t have the significance that it should. That is why so many men have left the home, abandoned their children, and continually are caught up in every kind of sin imaginable.

To those dads I want you to know that if you are tired of running from God, tired of the pain, tired of the heartache, tired of nothing working . . . this is the perfect day to turn it all around. Even though, this is a day we celebrate our earthly fathers, there is a Heavenly Father who loves you so much, and if you call out to Him, He will help you straighten your life out.

For those wives, ex-wives, and children of dads who haven’t been the Godly dad the Bible talks of, pray for your dad. Know that deep down he is hurting, and only surrendering to Christ will change that. God loves your dad more than you do, and He is the one who can change your dad’s heart. I’ ll pray with you for your dad.

I want you to know that I love you and do care about you. For you dads out there today, let me encourage you by telling you . . . if you keep Jesus first in your life, He will help you overcome the trials of this life, and allow you to see victories in every area of your life. In your marriage, in your children, in your career, in your service for Him….if you will simply trust Him and operate in His strength, you will know blessings and joy above and beyond anything you ever imagined.

Please know that I will be praying for you today, and if you need any special prayer to be the man, the husband, the father, the servant God has called you to be….please don’t hesitate to email me at: bkeller@liveprayer.com . God has given us many great examples of how to be a true father. Follow Him each day and He will mold you and make you into the father He has raised you up to be.

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Is President Barack Hussein Obama the Fulfillment of Islamic Prophecy?

Leave a comment

(2 Peter 2:1)

*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!

Is President Barack Hussein Obama the fulfillment of Islamic prophecy? Back when he was still Senator Obama running to be President I asked that question. Watch this powerful video of less than 3 minutes and ask yourself if 1.6 BILLION Muslims worldwide are looking to this man as being the fulfillment of Islamic prophecy!

My friend, today is a very unique Devotional. Each day, I share with you the Truth of God’s Word. Today, I want to share with you a lie. I share this lie with you since it is a lie that over 1.6 BILLION people around the world believe. You can’t just sit back and ignore what over 20% of the world’s population believes to be true.

In the prophetic commentary on the Qu’ran, Bukhari Volume 60, book 60, 159, it says, Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until the sun rises from the West: and when the people see it, then whoever will be living on the surface of the earth will have faith, and that is (the time) when no good will it do to a soul to believe then, if it believed not before.” The key line from this Islamic prophecy is, “until the sun rises from the West.”

First of all, let’s deal with the fact that Islamic prophecy is based on the false teachings of Islam, so it is no more true than what Miss Cleo says, or psychic Jean Dixon predicts will happen, or any other prophesy outside of what God’s Word teaches. These false prophesies are believed by those who follow the false prophets of the world. Countless people over the centuries have been led astray by the false prophets of satan. So even though this Islamic prophecy is a lie, it is believed by those who follow their false teachings.

In the Asia and the Middle East, symbols have much more meaning than they do to those who live in the United States. People in those cultures place much credibility in symbols and are superstitious about them. In light of this Islamic prophecy that I have shared with you, is it just a coincidence that the campaign symbol of Barack Hussein Obama was the sun rising over the ultimate symbol of the west, the flag of the United States of America?

In Christianity, you have to make the conscious decision to accept Jesus Christ into your heart and life by faith. In Islam, if your father is a Muslim, the children are Muslim by birth. Barack Hussein Obama’s father was a Muslim. President Obama claims to be a Christian, yet has never once been able to share that moment when he made the conscious choice to accept Jesus Christ as His Savior by faith. He has referred to his salvation as a “process.” The fact is, sanctification is a process that Believers undergo to become more like Christ. However, that is a process that starts AFTER you have hit your knees, asked Christ to forgive you of your sins, repented, and asked Him into your heart and life by faith.

Simply calling yourself a Christian means nothing. You aren’t a Christian simply because you claim to be a follower of Christ just like you aren’t a giraffe simply because you call yourself a giraffe! You are a Christian because you have made the conscious decision to accept Jesus into your heart and life by faith. Barack Hussein Obama calls himself a Christian, yet he says there are many roads to God, that he doesn’t believe there is a real Heaven or Hell, and takes positions in complete rebellion to the Bible on abortion, homosexuality and giving away part of the land God gave to the children of Israel to her enemies.

The fact is, Barack Hussein Obama has NEVER repudiated the beliefs of Islam, calling them what they are, a lie from hell. In fact, he believes that Muslims can be saved outside of faith in Jesus Christ. If nothing else, he is at least sympathetic to the beliefs of this false religion that calls for the death of all infidels, non-Muslims, and whose very real and stated goal is to see the United States wiped off the face of the globe and this nation ruled by Islamic law.

Don’t be fooled. This is a false religion that for 1400 years has been advanced by hatred, intimidation, violence, and death. If “Jihad,” or holy war, ever breaks out on US soil, there will be no “good Muslims” and “bad Muslims” as they want you to believe. There will only be Muslims fighting non-Muslims since they all read from and obey the same book!

I know President Barack Hussein Obama feels he is the anointed one, the chosen one. The fact is, there are 1.6 BILLION Muslims worldwide who believe he is exactly that. They believe that he is the fulfillment of Islamic prophecy! Let me remind you that there is only one who is THE ONE, the fulfillment of true Bible prophecy, and His name is Jesus Christ, the Savior of this world!!!

During his tenure as President, he has purposely planted Muslims, many with Muslim Brotherhood and other terror connections, in every government agency. He routinely lambastes Christians, while being the chief advocate and apologist for Islam. The reason he refuses to identify any terror as being of Islam is because there is no such thing as “radical Islamic terror.” ALL ISLAM IS RADICAL AND ALL ISLAM IS ABOUT TERROR!!!

Obama’s chief counselor Valerie Jarrett was born in Iran. Her father was active in Chicago’s Communist Party. Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s closest aid has a family history of leading Muslim Brotherhood “charity” organizations in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and throughout the Middle East that fund terror groups. These two individuals who have ZERO Congressional oversight wield incredible power that few people even understand, and use that power to advance Islam in this nation while the media is used to lie to the public and act as advocates and apologists for the false religion of Islam.

THIS IS AN APATHETIC AND SLEEPING NATION IN COMPLETE IGNORANCE AS GOD IS USING ISLAM AS AN INSTURMENT OF HIS JUDGMENT FOR OUR SIN AND REBELLION JUST LIKE HE USED BABYLON TO JUDGE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL…EXACTLY AS I SAID COULD HAPPEN NINE YEARS AGO!!! READ: http://www.liveprayer.com/ddarchive3.cfm?id=3051

I love you and care about you so much. My friend, this is exactly why God has led me to start the Jonah Project. This is not the typical one day special event that comes and goes and 3 hours after it is over, it is all but forgotten. This is an ongoing effort, a viable plan to not only lead this nation back to God and Biblical values, but to save souls, and for the first time mobilize the true remnant of Christ to come together as one and fight the sins that are ripping out the soul of this nation.

Let me be blunt with you. We never had to fight for our faith before. Because of that, we don’t know how to fight. While we have not yet had to fight for our faith physically, we have been in a fight for the past 40 years spiritually, and have been getting our rear ends kicked from pillar to post. Our solution has been to run and hide in our churches and the conformable Christian subculture we have created. It is like those in the inner cities who didn’t want to deal with the crime and seedier element that moved into the inner cities years ago. They simply left the inner city and ran to set up their own little utopia in the suburbs.

Well, you can’t run from sin. While we have been hiding in our “Christian suburb,” sin has been going unchecked and that is why it has even infested the church in such a huge way. You can’t run from sin. You either stand and fight sin and defeat it, or you allow it to eat you up! For 25 years now I have rolled up my sleeves each day and gone to the front lines to fight for the faith. Through the power of Almighty God, for the last 17 years, He has used my sacrifice and the prayers and sacrifices of thousands in the Liveprayer family to impact tens of millions of lives around the world.

God is now calling us to a higher level of commitment and sacrifice. I am only one man. I can’t lead this nation back to God or wipe out the social ills of our day alone. I need you and millions of committed followers of Christ to help me. This is a call to battle stations before we lose this nation to satan once and for all. I realize most have never had to really fight for their faith before. I will teach you how.

Get on board the Jonah Project. Go to the website, watch the vision video, sign up, and get as many people as you can to sign on. I will lead you and guide you as the Spirit of the living God leads and guides me! Our nation, our faith, our Lord, is worth fighting for!!!

Bill Keller is Coming Out!

Leave a comment

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

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

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

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

In light of the recent massacre at the gay nightclub in Orlando, there are actually people who are trying to make the case that this massacre of people who choose to engage in perverted sex with others of the same sex is because of the hatred by Christians. The only blame for what happened in Orlando is on the shoulders of the evil monster who killed those people and the evil religion of Islam that teaches it is OK to kill people who engage in same sex relations!

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

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

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

Cook also said he will be actively fighting for the “civil rights” of those in the LGBT community! Let me help Mr. Cook. Modern science has CLEARLY rejected and been unable to prove that ANYONE is “born gay.” IT IS A CHOICE!!!! People choose to engage in homosexual behavior. Like all sin, once you do it long enough, it may seem natural, but it is still a choice. You are born black or white, you are born with blue eyes or green eyes, taking off your pants to have sex is a CHOICE!

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

Several years ago, I was vindicated by the Federal Government of all entities. For these past 17 years of Liveprayer, I have exposed for you and been trying to refute the LIE propagated by the pro-homosexual community that 10% of the population chooses to engage in unnatural, unhealthy, and perverted sex acts with members of the same sex.

Well, the CDC has published a large and current survey of what percentage of the population considers themselves “gay,” “lesbian,” “bisexual,” or “transgendered.” That percentage is NOT 10%, but under TWO PERCENT as I have been telling you and the nation for the past 22 yrs, 15+ yrs here at Liveprayer.com and 11+ yrs on TV!

My friend, once and for all there is no such thing as someone who is gay or lesbian, only people who CHOOSE to engage in homosexual acts. As I have shared in the past, someone who calls themselves “transgendered” is simply CONFUSED! If God made them a man they are a man, and if God made them a woman they are a woman!

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

—>Homosexuality is a bondage just like those addicted to alcohol, drugs, gambling, and anything else!

The goal of those who have chosen the homosexual lifestyle is to justify their sinful choice that is inherently destructive both to society and themselves. They are trying to force society to validate legally and ethically their choice of sexual behavior and relationships, and to enact laws that allow them to promote this sinful choice to our children as normal, even desirable behavior.

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

People make that choice every day! I deal with men and women daily who CHOOSE to commit adultery and destroy their marriage, lose the love and respect of their children, in many cases ruin their career. People who choose sin choose to deal with the consequences of their sin.

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

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

I love you and care about you so much. Pray for Tim Cook and all of those who are in this bondage of same sex relations.

Theologically this is not even a debatable issue. I have heard the tortured theological arguments homosexuals have made, but there is absolutely NO WAY to change the fact this act is a sin. Just because there is now a homosexual version of the Bible where they have literally changed the passages that call this act a sin, that does NOT change God’s inspired, inerrant Word.

It is about time the church wakes up and realizes that those who promote this sin are bold and are stopping at NOTHING to get their message out to the masses…EVEN TO THE CHURCH!!! They have done a great job of selling this lie since most in this nation now accept this deviant choice of sex as normal and acceptable!

As those who follow Christ, we also have a responsibility to pray for those who are in this bondage, for God to open their hearts to the truth of His Word, and to turn from their sin. Only God can change hearts, and for those who are in bondage to the sin of homosexuality, we must pray for them to open their hearts and turn from their sin.

Until Jesus returns, we will always have those who choose a perverted form of sex with those of their own gender, just like we will always have those who choose to pervert sex by having it outside of the bonds of marriage. While we can never accept their choice since it is clearly against God’s Word, we must pray for them, just like we must pray for everyone who is battling sin in their life.

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

Millions have turned from the sin of homosexuality and found complete restoration and fulfillment in living a life according to God’s plan. What He did for someone else, He can do for you! I pray today that you hear these words, and choose to find freedom from your sin today. That freedom is only a prayer away!

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

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Using the Tragedy in Orlando to Take Your Guns Away

Leave a comment

(Mark 12:31)

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

In the aftermath of the massacre in the Orlando gay nightclub by a Muslim terrorist, rather than address the real problem, ISLAM, President Obama and many in the Democratic party are once again using a tragedy to take guns away from the citizens of this nation. As President Obama continues to do everything in his power to destroy this nation before he leaves office in 7 months, he will be signing another illegal executive action to try and limit the rights to bear arms as stated in the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution.

Sadly, until he is held accountable by the courts (since Republican politicians don’t have the guts to begin impeachment proceedings for his continual failure to uphold the Constitution), President Obama will continue his lawless attack to take away the right to bear arms from the citizens of this nation.

DO NOT BE FOOLED! JUST LIKE HE HAS TAKEN LAWLESS EXECUTIVE ACTION TO ALLOW ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS TO REMAIN IN THE NATION, HE WILL TAKE FURTHER EXECUTIVE ACTIONS IN AN ATTEMPT TO RESTRICT OUR 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS!!!

Gun control and the Bible. You don’t get very far into the Book of Genesis until you see the first act of violence as Cain kills his brother Abel. Since that first act of evil, human history has been fraught with man’s violence against other men. Every type of weapon man has dreamed up in his imagination has been used to kill. The first firearms were invented in China in the 12th century. With the current heated debate in this nation over guns, I wanted to look at this issue in a way you won’t hear in the news, from a Biblical perspective.

First, the 2nd Amendment of our Constitution gives us the right to bear arms, so unless that Amendment is repealed confiscating guns is not even an option. New laws aren’t the answer either since the largest percentage of gun crimes are committed by people who don’t obey the laws to begin with. The reality is, there are exhaustive laws already on the books regarding guns, they just aren’t being enforced.

The mass shootings over the past decade that have received all of the headlines, have all been perpetrated by Muslim terrorists or people with mental illness. The only logical actions that should be considered are doing a better job of identifying people who are suffering from some form of mental illness, getting them the treatment they need, and put into place a way to track those who are most likely to become violent.

Sadly, in the end this is a large country with 330 million people. To enjoy the incredible freedoms we have, it creates an atmosphere for someone who is mentally disturbed to be able to randomly attack innocent people. There simply is not any sort of plan that is going to prevent that from happening from time to time.

THAT MY FRIEND…is why the spiritual state of this nation is so critical. That isn’t going to stop random acts of violence, but it will create an entirely different atmosphere than what we are living with today. We would “do unto others as we would have them do unto us.” We would “love our neighbors as ourselves.” We would reject the violence that is glorified in the movies, TV, and video games. Instead of treating life like it has no value, we would embrace life as the special gift from God that it is!

I love you and care about you so much. Only true revival can change the spiritual state of our nation, thus changing the environment that exists today which fosters random acts of violence. While the more spectacular acts make the news, every day in large cities and small towns, innocent people are attacked, hurt, and killed. We have become experts in how to commit violent acts against each other.

This is also responsible for a society today that actually embraces and cheers for the 4,000 innocent babies that are slaughtered every 24 hours. It is such a part of our culture, most people never even give it a thought. In this nation where a culture of death flourishes, the next segment of our society to be put to death will be the elderly. Grandma is going to die soon anyway, put her out of her misery now and save the expense of keeping her alive any longer!

We don’t have a gun problem in this nation, we have a spiritual problem. If every gun was confiscated and destroyed, we would find whatever was handy to commit acts of violence. The only real answer to the violence in our culture is to turn our hearts to God and start living our lives by HIS laws. Our society will never obey the laws of man unless we first obey the laws of God!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

I Sincerely Want to Thank You and Your Staff for Being There Always!

Leave a comment

(John 3:16, 14:6)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: ***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, give me your strength to stand for your Truth no matter what the cost. It is easy to call myself a follower of Jesus, but when confronted, when challenged, when faced with persecution, will I still say I am a follower of Jesus? I love you Lord and ask for your strength so no matter what I have to endure for my faith, I will stand firm. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

“You’ve been pivotal in my Christian growth Bill and I only wish I could do more. I pray daily for His blessings, protection and favor. To God be the glory!!!”

“I sincerely want to thank you and your staff for being there–always! You are an amazing ‘family’ to me, as much as any on earth. I relate more to your teachings than many others and stand with you. My heart identifies with your perspective, which I believe is the Holy Spirit bearing witness of these things today.”

“Dear Bill, my name is Kevin and last night I called from Chicago. I know that I didn’t have a lot of time to talk but I just want to let you know that I am praying for you to stay on the air in in Chicago. Your show has been a god blessing for me, when I came upon it in June of this year I have been dealing with some dark issues. I was a drug user and alcoholic, as well as feeling suicidal. But your program has inspired me to get myself clean and allow God to position me how he sees fit. I continue to have issues but I try to do the next right thing and I know if your show stays on it will be one the I motivating factors in my life to let walk the right path in life. And if not, then that’s God’s will. I really just wanted to contact you and give you my testimony of what your program has done for. Your ministry is in my prayers, and thanks again. GOD BLESS!”

“I’ve prayed the prayer to accept Jesus into my life! God bless you and please send me the book you mentioned for new believers.”

Thank you my friend! Together we are still impacting lives worldwide daily and bringing God’s Truth to the lost and hurting in the marketplace who aren’t hearing HIS Truth. Daily, as we minister to people worldwide while bringing God’s Truth to the marketplace and leading lost souls to faith in Jesus, we are working to see the sparks of revival this nation begin to turn back to God and His Truth!

LASTLY, PRAY FOR ME! Liveprayer is in a very critical place financially. We still have $23,000 to clear up our May shortfall and the $65,000 covers our June operations. $88,000 is not a huge amount of money in the scheme of things. We don’t require millions to do more ministry daily than many ministries do who raise those kinds of dollars so they can pay for buildings, and for the head of the ministry to live like the ruler of a small nation.

I AM IN PRAYER TODAY FOR SEVERAL OF OUR FRIENDS IN THE LIVEPRAYER FAMILY TO LET GOD USE YOU TODAY IN SENDING A MAJOR SPECIAL ONE-TIME GIFT TO KEEP GOD’S WORK MOVING FORWARD, JUST AS HE HAS USED MANY PEOPLE OVER THE LAST 17 YEARS AT CRITICAL MOMENTS WHEN WE WERE FACING CRITICAL FINANCIAL CHALLENGES. ALL I ASK IS OPEN YOUR HEART AND SEEK THE LORD REGARDING WHAT HE IS CALLING YOU TO DO!

The $23,000 balance from May is needed immediately to take care critical operational costs from May in order to keep Liveprayer alive!!! Please, I desperately need one or two people to help me right away with a special one-time sacrifice to get this past due amount from May taken care of before I lose control of being able to keep Liveprayer and our ministry operations online!

I am praying for one or two of our friends who are able to help me with a special one-time gift of $10,000 or more today, by credit card, or PayPal, or overnight a check to our office, or direct deposit it into our Wells Fargo account. I desperately need someone in the Liveprayer family who can step up today with a special one-time gift as we are in a dire place right now. Feel free to email me for information at: bkeller@liveprayer.com

Everyone else, please pray about what God is calling you to do to help me in these coming days to insure we can bring in the $88,000 we require to clean up May’s shortfall and end June with all of our basic operations current!!! OUR GOD IS ABLE!!!

TO GIVE A GIFT TO LIVEPRAYER, you can use your major credit card on our secure server at: http://www.liveprayer.com under the “Donation” link, you can give using your PayPal account using my email address: bkeller@liveprayer.com , or you can mail your gift to: Liveprayer, 6660 46th Ave. North, St. Petersburg, FL 33709. All gifts to Liveprayer are 100% tax deductible.

I love you and care about you so much! Please pray as we are under lots of pressure on many different fronts at this moment, but our God is able as we press on!!! I am counting on some of our friends who God has blessed and enabled to step up and help me today. Thank You and God bless you and your family!

In His love and service,

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

Bill Keller
