Standing Against Evil and For The Lord in These Final Days

Leave a comment

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

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, I cry out to you today. I have no place to turn but to you. My life is yours. Do with it as you will and I will obediently serve you with my very last breath. IN the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ..AMEN!

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

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

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

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

…I am most blessed among men to be able to wake up each day over these past 22 years of serving the Lord, especially the last 15+ years of Liveprayer.com and nearly 12 years of the Liveprayer TV program. As the great prayer warrior E.M. Bounds said, “Talking to men for God is a great thing, but talking to God for men is greater still!”

…I am in awe of God since I could have never imagined how God would use my life. At the time Liveprayer.com began I didn’t even own a computer, yet over these years tens of millions of lives have been impacted, over 100 million emails for prayers responded to, we have an archive of just over 9 million praise reports, and now over 900,000 souls we know of have come to faith in Jesus. I did NOTHING but surrender my life completely to the Lord and He simply used my as His vessel!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

…Few people will ever know or understand the personal price I have paid over these last 22 years. I have literally given my life to the Lord’s work, surrendering my life and the things of this world for His service. I am comforted by the words of Jesus when he said, “Whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.”

…I despise having to raise money. I started the ministry 22 years ago with nothing personally, and today still have nothing personally. This has NEVER been about money for me, but MINISTRY. All I have ever asked God for was not personal wealth, but the funds required to do His work as each new month dawns.

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

…Prior to the economic collapse 6 years ago, I only had to share our needs 2-3x a month because I had a small group of 20 people who I could always call or email that had the ability and willingness to help with a gift of anywhere from $5,000-$20,000. Many times over these last 15+ years we have had friends who were able to send us $10,000, $20,000, even $50,000 at critical times so I never had to share those critical needs with everyone. Sadly, that group through the economic downturn in 2008 that hurt so many different businesses and people personally, through several going to be with the Lord, is down to only 1 who can only do so much so often leaving me with no choice but to share our needs with the entire Liveprayer family and trust in faith for the Lord to move on the hearts of those able to help me.

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

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

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

…I am amazed at how we do so much with so little. All we do daily online costs us just over $1,300 a day and on TV for right at $1,200 a day. I am proud that right at .93 cents of every dollar goes directly to ministering to people, while most churches and ministries eat up 40%, 50%, even more in overhead and fundraising costs.

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

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

I love and care about you so much! Thank you for taking the time to pray and feel my words today. As I do daily, I never hold back as I share with you God’s Truth on the issues of the day as well as my personal thoughts and feelings. Even though I speak daily to a mass worldwide audience online and over a hundred thousand people 5 nights a week on the TV program, I try to speak to the heart of each person I am able to reach.

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

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

Bill Keller

Liveprayer is in Peril

Leave a comment

(Proverbs 3:28)

“Do not say to your neighbor, ‘Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you’– when you already have it with you.” Proverbs 3:28

“But the king replied to Araunah, ‘No, I insist on paying you for it. I will not sacrifice to the LORD my God burnt offerings that cost me nothing.’ ” 2 Samuel 24:24

“He which soweth bountifully shall reap bountifully.” 2 Corinthians 9:6

“Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.” Deuteronomy 15:10

“The disciples, every man according to his ability, determined to send relief unto the brethren.” Acts 11:29

Liveprayer is in peril! We are ripe to see this nation turn back to God and His Truth during this year of VICTORY, the only hope for this nation. No other major Christian leader or ministry is making this stand. I am a modern day prophet of God who simply wants to see souls saved, and our nation saved. That will never happen through politics, but ONLY if we repent, turn back to God and His Truth

MY VOICE HAD BEEN HEARD BY TENS OF MILLIONS BECAUSE THOSE WHO LOVE THE LORD, THE REMNANT, HAVE NO VOICE!!! YOUR LOVE, YOUR PRAYERS, AND YOUR GENEROUS SACRIFICES HAVE KEPT MY VOICE IN THE MARKETPLACE DAILY OVER THESE PAST 16 YEARS!!!

As I come to you today with only 3 days left in this month, we have finally covered the balance of our January. Praise God! I thank God for the wonderful Liveprayer family each day since it is your love, prayers, and most generous sacrifices that enable me to do the work God has called me to.

I have cut everything possible in order to keep the basic infrastructure that provides our platform each day, bringing God’s Truth to a lost and hurting world like few have the courage to do in such a public and visible way forsaking the personal consequences involved.

After 22 years of ministry, I have ZERO in earthly net worth, literally living month to month by trusting God to sustain me. But that is fine, since my rewards will come when this brief journey is over and my only desire is for God to use my life. I will fight each day to bring Christ to the lost and share His hope unto my last breath, literally shouting the Gospel from a street corner if I have to!

We are now faced over the next 72 hours with covering the $40,000 required for our February internet operations and the $25,000 required for our February TV program.

***I am desperate to cover TODAY $15,000 of our monthly internet operations that are now weeks past due, and $15,000 of our TV budget, also weeks past due! I need to cover this $30,000 immediately or for the first time in 16 years we could see our basic daily ministry operations interrupted! I have been in prayer for over a week for one or two of our friends to help me with a special one-time gift to cover this critical $30,000, and am on my knees today for one or two friends to contact me to insure Liveprayer continues without interruption!

God has blessed some of our friends with the ability to help me at this time. Those who God is speaking to and challenging today know who you are. Over 16 years, God has called many of our dear friends to make tremendous sacrifices and those who have responded have played a big part in the tens of millions of lives worldwide who have been impacted by Liveprayer, and the nearly 1 million souls we know of who have come to faith in Jesus! WILL YOU BE THE ONE TO STEP UP TODAY AND ANSWER GOD’S CALL?

If you have the ability to wire, direct-deposit (Wells Fargo), overnight, or credit card/PayPal and gift of $10,000 or more to insure we don’t lose our ability to minister to people each day as we have over the past 16 years, email me at: bkeller@liveprayer.com and I can give you the necessary information you need to get the funds to us ASAP.

That would leave $25,000 left to cover our February internet operations and $10,000 left to cover our February TV budget, for a total of $35,000. If 10 of our friends would help me with a special gift of $1,000 and everyone else will give as they are able to give, we can see go into March with ALL of our February operations current!!!

*I AM ASKING EVERYONE WHO LOVES LIVEPRAYER TO PRAY FOR OUR FINANCIAL NEEDS, AND ASK THE LORD WHAT HE IS CALLING YOU TO SACRIFICE TO HELP ME TODAY. IF IT IS $1, $10, $50, $100, $1,000, OR MORE, THAT IS BETWEEN YOU AND THE LORD. THIS NEED IS CRITICAL TO OUR SURVIVAL AND I WOULD NEVER SEND A MESSAGE LIKE THIS IF IT WASN’T CRITICAL!

Our monthly internet and TV budget breaks down to just $2,200 a day! If just 30 people would make the commitment to send a monthly gift to LP of $2,200, 100% of our basic internet and TV operations would be covered! So please, pray today about stepping up and make this commitment for the balance of this year of VICTORY so Liveprayer can focus 100% on the ministry work God has called us to!

As it has been since day one 16 years ago, Liveprayer and my work for the Lord is in your hands. Without your love, prayers, and sacrifce, there is no Liveprayer!

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.

I love and care about you so much. We are in perilous time. This is one of the few times in 16 years Liveprayer has been in danger of being silenced, and I need your help today more than ever! Satan HATES Liveprayer! I have refused to play the game of Christian politics to raise money. I have refused to compromise the TRUTH for money. I have refused to be part of the Christian media world that preaches to the choir, instead, reaching out to the lost and hurting masses.

I have done my best faithfully each day over 16 years now to take God’s Truth and the Gospel to those who have never heard it, or have never been confronted with it..for FREE ASKING NOTHING! THAT HAS ONLY BEEN POSSIBLE BECAUSE FRIENDS LIKE YOU HAVE PRAYED AND SACRIFICED TO HELP THE LORD’S WORK HERE AT LIVEPRAYER!

We are ripe to see this nation turning back to God and His Truth. We can do that, just like the people of Nineveh did. However, I need your prayers, and desperately need your support, so we can keep pressing on. We are so close, I will not allow our work of the Lord over these last 16 years to fail because of $65,000.

Please help me today! Help me to lead lost souls to faith in Jesus! Stand with me as we lead this nation back to God and His Truth before His wrath and judgment rains down upon us as it has upon so many rebellious nations before. Our time is now. Our moment is now. Please help me today!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

The Question is Being Asked, Is Obama a Christian

Leave a comment

(Mark 13:22; 1 John 4:1; James 4:4)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, we have squandered our blessings as a nation over these past 50 years. Please, hold back your wrath and fury and give us a little more time to turn back to You and Your Truth. There is a faithful remnant, empower us to rise up and deliver the soul of this nation from destruction. In Jesus name I pray…AMEN!

The answer Gov. Walker of Wisconsin should have given the press!!! In the media frenzy over Wisconsin Gov. Walker not answering the question regarding whether President Obama is a Christian or not, along with former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani questioning the President’s love of this country, add to that the rejection of the US Constitution by lawlessly trying to grant what will amount to citizenship to apx 5 million lawbreaking illegal aliens, and the nightmare our foreign policy in every nation around the world has become putting this nation’s security at serious risk, it is important to understand what drives President Obama when it comes to the issues of faith.

Long before most of the nation ever heard of Barack Hussein Obama, I was warning people about this man. I did numerous Devotionals about how this man was an enemy of God. Sadly, despite the warnings, the majority voted him into office. I am not even talking about his political positions, but his SPIRITUAL positions! The big debate now is whether he is a Christian? Again, LONG before anyone even questioned this, I created a video I want you to watch. http://www.liveprayer.com/b4.cfm

(from June of 2008!!!) IS SENATOR BARACK OBAMA REALLY A CHRISTIAN OR AN ENEMY OF GOD? Senator Obama has been very up front during the campaign about his Christian faith. Only God can judge his heart if indeed he has accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior, but based on his public statements about his faith as well as his actions, it is critical to explore what he believes and see if this man really is a Christian as he claims. What does Senator Obama believe regarding the basic tenets of the Christian faith? What does he believe about salvation?

Senator Obama is part of this new and emerging group of Christians I have called the “religious left.” The “religious left” is made up of people who identify themselves as Christians and hold strong religious beliefs as well as sharing left-wing ideals. Obviously, this group has risen up in opposition to those who have been tagged the “religious right” or the “Christian right.” Those in the “religious left” oppose God on issues like abortion and gay marriage, but are heavily involved in the ecumenical movement, environmental issues, opposing war for any reason, world hunger, and social issues like healthcare, welfare, and education. Sound familiar?

I am sending a formal invitation to Senator Obama to sit down with me on camera and deal with these serious questions regarding what he believes about his Christian faith. He has been eager to talk about his faith to the media and has appeared in many televised programs specifically about what he believes. Sadly, those who have interviewed him and moderated these special programs on faith, have either not had the understanding or desire to ask Senator Obama the critical questions to determine what this man really believes regarding the foundational beliefs of Christianity.

A Christian, according to the Bible, is a person who has made the conscious choice to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior by faith and follow Him. You CANNOT be a true follower of Jesus Christ and deny the Truth of the Bible. It is inconsistent to say, ” I am a Christian,” yet live in rebellion to the Bible. It is apparent as you listen to Senator Obama speak about his faith, that he does NOT hold the Bible to be the inspired, inerrant Word of God, representing Absolute Truth and our final authority in all matters. Jesus said, “If you love me you will obey me,” and that means His Word!

So what are Senator Obama’s beliefs about the most important issue of all, how to be saved? He claims his mother rejected Christ, yet he knows she is in Heaven. He stated in a recent interview, “I believe that there are many paths to the same place.” This is the damnable universalistic lie leading millions of souls to hell that there are many roads leading to God. He also said that “he doesn’t know if he is going to Heaven, nor does he believe he or anyone will go to Hell.” How can you claim to be a Christian, yet not believe in Heaven and Hell?

JESUS SAID,” I AM THE WAY AND THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME.” JESUS TAUGHT THAT THERE WAS ONLY ONE WAY TO BE SAVED, AND THAT IS THROUGH FAITH IN HIM, AND THAT THOSE WHO “BELIEVED IN HIM” WOULD BE FOREVER WITH HIM IN HEAVEN, AND THOSE WHO REJECTED HIM WOULD BE CAST INTO HELL FOR ALL ETERNITY. HOW CAN YOU CLAIM TO BE A CHRISTIAN YET DENY GOD’S PLAN OF SALVATION THAT SUPPOSEDLY SAVED YOUR SOUL???

The fact Senator Obama denies Jesus is the only way to be saved, that there is no Heaven or Hell, that the Bible is not the only Truth, calls into question whether he believes Jesus was immaculately conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin as the Bible claims, or that Jesus literally rose from the dead as we are told in Scripture. Faith in Christ is not a political game, but a life changing experience that determines where your soul will spend eternity. It is time for Senator Obama to be held accountable for what he says he believes to examine if he really is a Christian!

Also calling his faith into question is his position on three key spiritual issues that transcend into the political arena. ON ALL THREE SENATOR OBAMA IS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF GOD! First is his position on abortion. His entire political career he has not just voted to uphold the slaughter of innocent babies, but he has been a defender of those rights. He has been such a staunch defender of this practice of legalized infanticide that he was endorsed by NARAL, one of the world’s leading baby killing organizations. GOD CALLS ABORTION MURDER AND NO CHRISTIAN IN CONSCIENCE CAN DEFEND OR SUPPORT MURDERING INNOCENT BABIES!

Second, is his position on the sin of homosexuality. Again, his entire political career Senator Obama has been a staunch ally and supporter of the homosexual community. He is in favor of redefining God’s Holy Institution of Marriage to include men marrying men and women marrying women, he is in favor of redefining God’s plan for the family to include adoption by same sex couples, and he is in favor of special rights for people who choose to engage in deviant sexual relationships. GOD CALLS HOMOSEXUALITY AN ABOMINATION AND THE BIBLE DEFINES THIS ACT AS A SIN FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT THROUGH THE NEW TESTAMENT.

Third, is his position on Israel. Senator Obama is in favor of giving away part of the land that God Himself gave to the children of Israel to their enemies, whose stated goal and desire is to kill every Jew and wipe them off the face of the earth. God’s promise to Abraham found in Genesis 12:3 is still in effect. It reads, ” I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” NO MAN HAS THE RIGHT TO GIVE AWAY THE LAND GOD HIMSELF GAVE TO ISRAEL!

If Senator Obama wants to support slaughtering babies, the homosexual agenda, giving away Israel’s land to their enemies, and promote New Age lies about salvation, that is fine. However, don’t do these things and call yourself a Christian. I never have or ever will endorse any candidate, tell people who to or not to vote for. I want to warn all Christians that you can’t separate your faith in Christ from who you elect to influence the spiritual issues of our day. You are not voting for a pastor, but should be voting for someone who will uphold your faith and values. When you vote, you are voting your conscience.

I will be praying for Senator Obama and his family. Praying that he has a real encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ. His campaign slogan is CHANGE. I pray that Senator Barack Obama will CHANGE from being an enemy of God who lies to people that there are many roads that lead to God to being a man of God who will boldly and without shame tell people the ONLY way to be saved is through faith in Jesus Christ. I pray that Senator Barack Obama will CHANGE from being an enemy of God who supports the legal slaughter of babies to being a man of God who seeks to overturn Roe vs. Wade and take the Federal Government out of the business of legally slaughtering babies.

I pray that Senator Barack Obama will CHANGE from being an enemy of God who supports gay marriage, gay adoptions, special rights for gays, to being a man of God who will condemn this sin and try to help those in bondage to homosexuality find freedom. I pray that Senator Barack Obama will CHANGE from being an enemy of God who seeks to give away the land God gave to Israel to being a man of God who will be a friend to and defender of the Jewish people.

I love you and care about you so much. The Christian faith is not a buffet where you can pick and choose what you want to believe. We don’t get to determine what Truth is, God has already done that and given it to us in the Bible. The public statements Senator Obama has made about being a Christian and his position on key spiritual issues are totally inconsistent with someone who has a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. His chief campaign slogan is CHANGE. I pray that Senator Barack Obama will CHANGE from being an enemy of God to a friend of God!!!

*Sadly, all I warned people about starting in 2007 has come to pass in what can only be described as an “evil king,” along the lines of some of the most Godless kings in the history of Israel, all preceding God’s wrath and judgment on His people for their sin and wickedness.

To fully understand why President Obama is an apologist for Islam, you can never forget he was born a Muslim since his father as a Muslim, and grew up as a Muslim in Islamic schools as a child. I personally don’t believe he is a Muslim, just like his “fruit” declares he is not a Christian. In the end, I contend he is simply a narcissistic secular humanist whose “god” is the person he sees in his mirror each morning!

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

Dyine to Self Daily is What Paul Spoke of Often

Leave a comment

(1 Corinthians 15:31; Romans 8:4-13; Galatians 5:16; Galatians 2:20)

***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!

Dying to self daily is what Paul spoke of so often. It is how we walk in the “Spirit” and not in the “flesh” as we are instructed in Romans Chapter 8 and Galatians Chapter 5. The whole issue of dying to self daily is the absolute key to living a victorious life in Christ. It literally means that you have to die to self DAILY! This is why so many people who are saved, love the Lord, live beneath their blessings and in constant turmoil. This is how people who know Christ as their Savior end up committing adultery, cheat people, lie, get in bondage to drugs, alcohol, food, sex, gambling, shopping, greed, and anything else people become enslaved to. They don’t die to self each day and end up walking in the “flesh” and NOT the “Spirit.”

People wonder all the time how a pastor, a deacon, an elder, someone in the leadership of God’s church could leave their wife and run off with another woman. People wonder all the time how a Sunday School teacher who loves the Lord could neglect her children and family because of alcohol. Maybe you are wondering how you could be raising your hands to Jesus, speaking in tongues, and being used by God to touch lives one day, and sinning against God the next. The answer is when you fail to die to self each day, you are walking in the “flesh,” not the “Spirit.”

The question that needs to be addressed today is HOW does a person “die to self?” The first step is an action, something that you must do. Dying to self is a conscious choice that you must make, one nobody can make for you. It is the act of surrendering your life completely to Christ. The reason God’s Word talks about dying to self DAILY is because it is something that we must do each and every day. Our life with Christ is not for an hour or two on Sunday, but literally 24/7. It is critical to make the choice to die to self each and every day.

Since this is something you must do each day, I do it and counsel others to do it the moment you wake up in the morning. As I first open my eyes to a new day, before I do anything I take a moment and thank God for a day that was not promised to me and make the conscious choice to completely surrender my life to Him that day. I literally tell God to take my life and use it for His glory that day, to use me as an instrument of blessing. When we get saved, we not only ask Christ into our heart and life by faith, but we give our very lives to Him. In dying to self each day, we are reaffirming that our life doesn’t belong to us any longer, it is His.

At the moment we are born again, we receive the promise of the “Comforter,” or the Holy Spirit. Each Believer is indwelt by the Holy Spirit to empower them and guide them throughout their life. It is literally the power of Almighty God living within each person who has given their heart and life to Christ by faith. As you surrender your life afresh to Christ at the start of each day, you are allowing your life to be controlled by the Holy Sprit and not by your flesh. It is no longer you but God that is in complete control of your life. You have traded in your thoughts and desires for God’s thoughts and desires. It is not YOU that is living, it is Christ living in you as Paul wrote in Galatians 2:20.

This whole process takes only a few minutes of time alone with the Lord, but it is the most important few minutes of your day. When you don’t go through this process each and every morning, you wake up, start going through your day, and not only does it feel like the day is weighing you down, you don’t have that confidence. The reality is, the day IS weighing you down because you are operating in your strength and not the Lord’s, and the lack of confidence comes from the fact you are in control of your life and not Christ.

Sadly, some people go days, even weeks without really dying to self, and it usually takes the consequences of their poor choices during that time to bring them back to the Lord. Like I say often, your way doesn’t work, God’s way works! Let me give you some advice out of my love for you. You can never run your life better than God can. The sooner you realize that, the more peace, joy, and abundance you will know during this journey through life.

There is probably no more critical a message I will ever share with you in living a victorious life in Christ than the one today. All of the benefits in God’s Word exist and are available to those who believe, but there is a price to pay and that price is our very life surrendered, yielded to the Lord. It is a choice, an act, that nobody can force you to commit. The important thing for you to hear today is that it is not something you do just once and forget about. It is something that you must do DAILY! EVERY DAY! WITHOUT FAIL! Each morning when you wake up, you have to make the conscious choice to die to self, to surrender your life to Christ, and walk in the “Spirit” instead of the “flesh.”

I love you and care about you so much. The difference between a person who knows the Lord as their Savior living a defeated life and a victorious life, lies in what I am sharing with you today. Please, save your money. You don’t need to waste it listening to Tony Robbins or the motivational speakers of the world lie to you that you can do it on your own, and you don’t need to spend it on books and tapes from preachers who preach a feel good Gospel but forget to tell you about the sacrifice involved. The key to living a victorious life in Christ lies in you waking up each morning and making the conscious choice to die to self and allow Christ to control your life.

The fact is, the Bible says that if you have asked Christ into you heart and life by faith, it is no longer your life, that it belongs to Him. The Word says we have been “bought with a price.” So in essence, each day you are only giving the Lord what already belongs to Him anyway. Remember my message in the past on what really happens when we get saved? We are literally giving our life to Christ. It is no longer ours, but is now His. The reality is, each morning when we wake up, we have to make the choice to die to self so that Christ can live within us during that day. If we don’t do this each and every day when we wake up, we will soon find ourselves walking in the “flesh” and not the “Spirit.”

I will be praying for you today. Praying that you will sit down and read this message over and over. This is the meat and potatoes of the Word. This is where the rubber meets the road in regard to our Christian walk. This is the part that nobody really wants to talk about since we love the benefits of being saved, but we really don’t want to think about the price that Jesus paid or the sacrifice we have to make each day. You MUST think about it since it is the difference between you living a defeated life and living a victorious life. To live that victorious life in Christ, to walk in His victory, you have to die to self each day so that you are walking in the “Sprit” and not the “flesh” so that it is Christ, not you that lives.

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

The Hope We have is Found in Nineveh

Leave a comment

(Jonah 3:3-10)

Jonah obeyed the word of the Lord and went to Nineveh. Now Nineveh was a very large city; it took three days to go through it. Jonah began by going a day’s journey into the city, proclaiming, “Forty more days and Nineveh will be overthrown.” The Ninevites believed God. A fast was proclaimed, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth. When Jonah’s warning reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust. This is the proclamation he issued in Nineveh: “By the decree of the king and his nobles: Do not let people or animals, herds or flocks, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink. But let people and animals be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone call urgently on God. Let them give up their evil ways and their violence. Who knows? God may yet relent and with compassion turn from his fierce anger so that we will not perish.” When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, he relented and did not bring on them the destruction he had threatened. Jonah 3:3-10

Is it any coincidence that Biblical Nineveh is modern day Mosul in Iraq, that is the current headquarters of ISIS?

For those Liveprayer old timers, you know I have been warning and educating people about the false religion of Islam since we began 16 years ago, 2 years BEFORE 9/11.

I shared what God showed me in late 2007 that the judgment of God would fall in a very visible way that nobody could ignore unless they wanted to in 2008.

I warned people all throughout 2008 that if God allowed Barack Hussein Obama to become the 44th President of the nation, it would be a clear sign of His judgment on this country because he would be the most pro-death, pro-homosexual, anti-Israel, and pro-Islam President ever, opposing God on every spiritual issue facing the land.

After seeing wave after wave of God’s judgment being poured out on the United States over these past 7+ years now, we are literally at the crossroads of God’s ultimate judgment or turning back to our Creator and His Truth!

The hope we have lies in Nineveh! The Bible teaches that God is no respecter of person, and what He did for someone else He will do for you. That includes nations! Nineveh was a wicked, secular nation, yet when faced with the warning from God’s prophet of their ultimate destruction, repented turned to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and the greatest revivals in human history occurred and God’s hand of judgment was stayed for a season. This is amazing since despite the warning of God’s prophets on many different occasions, God’s own chosen people refused to repent and suffered His wrath and punishment!

You can go to my Daily Devotional archives where every Daily Devotional since day is searchable by date, topic, or keyword
(http://www.liveprayer.com/darchive.cfm) and search using keyword Islam, keyword financial, and read the complete details of the dozens and dozens of complete and detailed warnings I have shared with you over the years. The Daily Devotionals on Islam the past year have been incredibly detailed as I have helped you to understand how our current President and administration have helped to make possible the destruction of this nation by Islam, much like God used the Babylonians as an instrument of His judgment on Israel several times.

I SHARED WITH YOU LAST NOVEMBER THAT 2015 WOULD BE A YEAR OF VICTORY, A YEAR TO SEE A TRUE REVIVAL BREAK OUT THROUGHOUT THE NATION AS WE BEGIN TO TURN BACK TO GOD AND HIS TRUTH. PREPARE YOURSELF MY FRIEND, AS THE UNITED STATES EXPERIENCES A “NINEVEH MOMENT” AS WE SEE A MIGHTY HARVEST OF SOULS COME INTO THE KINGDOM AND GOD’S HAND FINAL WRATH STAYED FOR A SEASON!!!

Liveprayer has led this charge over many years of faithful service every day online and on TV. No matter what happens tomorrow, the tens of millions of lives impacted for Christ, the 100 million plus emails for prayer we have prayed over and responded to as testified by the 9+ million praise reports we have archived, and most important, the 900,000 souls we know of who have come to faith in Jesus, will be my eternal legacy and that of every member of the Liveprayer family who has been part of the incredible miracle of God, especially those who have prayed for His work here and those who have made incredible financial sacrifices that enabled us to be here 24/7/365 these past 16 years!!! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

I am in a very desperate place today. As we are just 10 days from the end of February, we still require the last $7,000 of our JANUARY operations, all SERIOUSLY past due, and the first $15,000 of our February operations, going on 2 weeks past due, totaling $22,000 that we MUST cover by the end of the week to not see our basic daily internet and TV operations disrupted!

I desperately need just 4 of our friends who have the ability to wire, direct-deposit (Wells Fargo), overnight, or credit card/PayPal and gift of $5,500 or more (just one God is calling to meet this need) to insure these payments are met and we aren’t forced to lost our ability to minister to people each day as we have over the past 16 years! (Email me at: bkeller@liveprayer.com and I can give you the necessary information you need to get the funds to us ASAP.)

GOD ALWAYS HAS A RAM IN THE BUSH, AND I NEED 1-4 OF OUR FRIENDS TODAY TO ANSWER HIS CALL TO HELP ME!
Covering the last $7,000 of January’s shortfall, and the first $15,000 of our February internet and TV operations, would leave us requiring the last $30,000 of our monthly internet operations and $20,000 of our monthly TV operations over the final 10 days of this short month. To cover that final $50,000, if 30 of our friends can help me in the next few days with a special one-time gift of $1,000 and everyone else will give as you are able to give, we can get the bulk if not all of the final $50,000 taken care of by the end of the month.

I am asking today that everyone please take a few minutes to pray about this critical situation. Pray about what God is asking YOU to do to help me today. Over these past 16 years, on many critical occasions God has moves on the hearts of several people to make a real sacrifce and by faith give a gift of $5,000, $10,000, $20,000, and in a few cases $50,000 and $100,000.

I UNDERSTAND this will require some people to really step out in faith, but you know the daily track record of our faithfulness over 16 years now, and that I have proven time and time again no matter what the personal consequences I will can’t be bought or will never compromise the Truth of God’s Word!

Our monthly internet and TV budget breaks down to just $2,200 a day! If just 30 people would make the commitment to send a monthly gift to LP of $2,200, 100% of our basic internet and TV operations would be covered! So please, pray today about stepping up and make this commitment for the balance of this year of VICTORY so Liveprayer can focus 100% on the ministry work God has called us to!

I love you and care about you so much. I hate to spend my time, or yours with our finances. I would much rather be spending that time with the Lord and in ministering to you and your family, but if I don’t we simply won’t be able to continue to provide all of the life-changing ministry we do for so many worldwide each day.

The only hope for our nation is to have that “Nineveh moment,” and I believe in my heart we WILL! I see in the midst of the many dangers and toils we face each day, people crying out for real answers and looking for true hope. Liveprayer has faithfully shared God’s answers and the hope of Christ with people in this nation and around the world each day for 16 years. I DO NOT believe our work is finished yet, certainly not over just $71,000.

However, we have only been here this long because of dear friends like you who have prayed for me and God’s work here, and have made the sacrifce, sometimes HUGE sacrifce, allowing God to use your life to feed the multitudes who wouldn’t have been fed otherwise. Please stand with me today, pray, sacrifice what you can, and together we will keep sharing the hope of Christ with the lost and hurting, while leading our land to repentance and revival instead of judgment!!!

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

Bill Keller

The Soul of Our Nation Hangs in the Balance

Leave a comment

(Amos 3:2-3)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help me to do whatever part you are asking me to play in helping to turn this nation back to You and Your Truth! I know that your judgment is upon our nation, and that our time is very short. Leading our nation back to You oh God can bring a “stay” of your hand of judgment for a season and we can see a mighty harvest of souls for the Kingdom here and around the world. In the fact of such blatant evil that exists, show yourself strong oh Lord, rise up, use me and those who will not bow our knee to baal for your glory. May this world see the power, might, and majesty of Almighty God, a God who will not be mocked! USE ME OH GOD…USE MY LIFE! In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

“You only have I known of all the families of the earth; therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.” Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?” Amos 3:2-3

The soul of a nation hangs in the balance, the stakes could not be higher! Sadly, most people can’t see what is happening right in front of them in the natural, so to expect them to see what is happening spiritually is a huge task. As we look back on the great prophets of the Old Testament, over and over this was their lament as they tried to warn the people of God’s pending judgment but the people chose not to listen!

In today’s anchor Scripture, we have one such example as the prophet Amos condemned Israel for breaking God’s laws. He prophesied at Bethel which became the center of idol worship and the residence of King Jeroboam II that the Israelites would be taken captive by the Assyrians. “You only have I known of all the families of the earth; therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.” Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?”

Over the 16 years of Liveprayer.com in the Daily Devotional I have faithfully written each morning and the nearly 12 years of the Liveprayer TV program only airing on secular stations and networks, I have tried my best in the midst of dealing with the issues of the day and in people’s lives from a Biblical worldview to warn you of the spiritual peril this nation was in. With each passing year, the intensity has increased as I have clearly seen God’s blessings and protection being removed, and his judgment clearly being poured out on our land for our sins, wickedness, and rebellion!

These warnings began in earnest in November of 2007 with a prophetic warning about God clearly showing us His judgment on our nation beginning in 2008. Later that year I unveiled the Jonah Project
(http://www.liveprayer.com/jonah/) as a prayerful and deliberate plan to lead this nation back to God and His Truth. In November of last year I shared a prophetic word of HOPE regarding 2014 being the year we would see the sparks of a true revival and the start of the nation turning back to God and Biblical Truth, just like Nineveh heeded the warnings of the prophet Jonah and repented, turned to God, and a great revival broke out as His hand of judgment on that people was stayed for a season!

As we came down to the final 100 days of this past year, once again God spoke through me words of satan’s plans to insure that this nation would be in so much turmoil, under such a barrage of pain and evil from every direction, that revival and a turning back to God would be the last thing the people were thinking of. However, as God had me share with you, it will be in this year of VICTORY that the sparks of a true national revival would be seen and a turning back to God and His Truth would begin as people wake up to the only hope and answer we have!

I am going to share with you some emails I have received and will respond to them in this Devotional They are being used to try and wake up those who are slumbering, those who still have not opened your spiritual eyes and ears. Just like the priests in the days of the prophets in the Old Testament were too busy building their own kingdom to even notice God’s pending judgment, so are the “priests” of today.

Of all the major national Christian leaders with tens of millions annually at their disposal, NOT ONE is warning the people of God’s pending judgment! They are too busy playing on people’s greed and desires for the things of this temporal world, tickling the ears of the masses telling them what they want to hear instead of what they need to hear, as they have been blinded by their own ambitions and desires to even see God’s pending wrath and judgment just ahead!

I am not surprised in the least that never before in these past 16 years has Liveprayer been under such an attack on our finances. Despite requiring pennies compared to the massive amounts of money local churches reaching a small local congregation raise, we are in a struggle to simply keep this incredible and proven platform God has created for us to share His Truth and hope to the lost and hurting masses around the world each day. In this greatest hour of our work for the Lord, we are reduced to begging daily for simple scraps simply to do that work!

THAT IS BECAUSE SATAN KNOWS AFTER OVER TWO DECADES OF SERVICE, BILL KELLER CAN’T BE BOUGHT AND WON’T COMPROMISE GOD’S TRUTH UNDER ANY CONDITION! THE ONLY WAY SATAN CAN SILENCE ME OR RESTRICT THE NUMBERS OF PEOPLE WE CAN REACH IS BY CUTTING OFF OUR FINANCES! AS YOU READ THE REST OF THIS POWERFUL MESSAGE THAT I BEG YOU TO READ OVER AND OVER AND SHARE WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW IN ORDER TO SEE AND UNDERSTAND THE PERILOUS MOMENT OF HUMAN HISTORY WE ARE LIVING AND THE IMPORT OF THE MOMENT, PRAY ABOUT TAKING YOUR STAND AND MAKING WHATEVER SACRIFCE YOU MUST MAKE TO HELP ME TODAY!!!

“Pastor Bill, you are right! Everything that you have been saying is coming true! It is a shame no one is listing except save a few. I have been saying the same thing for quite sometime now, but just like you no one pays any attention or thinks you are crazy. Well I for one along with my wife have our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on our side, we know where we will be when the end comes, and I believe sooner then later. It is only going to get worse instead of better. This country as a whole has forsaken the Heavenly Father that has protected us all of these years and we have thrown it all away. I am just glad that at my age I am on the way out. It is a shame that all those that have served this country in time of war and peace and some gave their all, it has all been for nothing. Anyway God bless you for standing up for the God of The Bible and telling it like it is. The only consolation that you and I have is knowing where we will be in the end, in the kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

I hear this brother’s frustration, I know it well. I will say that those who have served our nation to keep it safe and free these many years, as well as those who have faithfully served the Lord, have not done so in vain. The lives they helped impact and souls of those who will be in Glory will be their eternal inheritance!

“Dear Bill, I know you’re busy so I’ll make this quick. Christians who focus upon apocalyptic tend to be mired in more in fatalism, that this world is already over, and even that the rapture’s main point and purpose is to “beam us up “Scotty.” Christians who are interested in kingdom-building (are often mired in a social gospel that is more social than gospel- taking on the world’s priorities, as opposed to God’s priorities. I notice that you: a) maintain a belief in the value of the socio-prophetic ministry, and yet b) still believe in a Christian voice in the marketplace. It’s a powerful combination. Question: how have you managed to navigate the narrow way between a debilitating fatalism (and apocalyptic escapism) on one side, and a mere anthropocentric kingdom-building social justice on the other?”

We have but one life. For those who live in the United States, we have been blessed with an incredible opportunity to live in a nation where we have the freedom to share the hope and love of Christ with the world. Sadly, this nation once under the blessings and protection of God, like Israel, has turned from God to the gods of this world. God will not be mocked and at some point His grace and mercy run out.

People don’t like to remember that God is also a God of judgment. Each person as well as each nation can’t escape His judgment. So, while this nation has chosen to turn our back on God and His Truth, while we can expect nothing less than His wrath and judgment for our sin and rebellion, we also have the opportunity until that moment to see souls saved and a nation possibly saved by turning back to God and His Truth like Nineveh was saved for a season!

“Pastor Bill, the Session of our Presbyterian church voted not to support the action of the General Assembly to change the definition of marriage as being “between a man and a woman,” to “between two people.” More recently the Session voted not to permit same-sex marriages anywhere on our church property. The GA cannot impose its will on our conscience!”

Is it any wonder why this nation is under God’s judgment when a “church” is even discussing such an abomination?

“Pastor Bill, I recently read about a Christian ‘swingers’ ministry. They make the case using the Bible that this is a way for them to reach people the church is not reaching. I know you think “out of the box” to reach the lost, what are your thoughts on this?”

Jesus told the woman taken in adultery to “go and sin no more.” He didn’t tell her to get back to work! Sadly, many “churches” think that in order to reach people, they have to support acts the Bible clearly calls sin, or even worse, purposely not speak out against sin since that will offend people. Memo, SIN OFFENDS GOD!

This is the byproduct of the man-made marketing schemes like seeker/purpose driven/emerging church/prosperity gospel to fill “campuses,” no longer called churches bearing the cross of Christ, full of warm bodies! This is the result of the “Osteenization” of the church that never talks about sin, or hell, since that won’t make people feel good because people who feel good buy books and send money!

I love you and care about you so much! Now more than every I need your love, prayers, and sacrificial support. I am praying that by the end of Friday we can cover the $9,000 we are still short from our January operations, along with the first $15,000 already due for our basic internet and TV operations this month that is putting our daily ministry operations in serious jeopardy. My knees are bloodied from spending these past days asking God to simply send a few of our friends to take that immediate burden from me!!!

I know satan is fighting us for every dime people are sacrificing to help God’s work here, since there is NO REASON we should have to worry about these amounts to simply operate. Local churches are spending millions on buildings that will one day be rubble, and national ministries take the millions they are donated to buy vast amounts of real estate they can own tax free, private jets, luxury automobiles, and multiple mansions.

Covering the last $9,000 of January’s shortfall, and the first $15,000 of our February internet and TV operations, would leave us requiring the last $30,000 of our monthly internet operations and $20,000 of our monthly TV operations over the final 10 days of this short month. If EVERYONE will pray, give as you are able to give, I know that covering the $24,000 we require IMMEDIATELY, we can get the bulk if not all of the final $50,000 taken care of by the end of the month.

Our monthly internet and TV budget breaks down to just $2,200 a day! If just 30 people would make the commitment to send a monthly gift to LP of $2,200, 100% of our basic internet and TV operations would be covered! So please, pray today about stepping up and make this commitment for the balance of this year of VICTORY so Liveprayer can focus 100% on the ministry work God has called us to!

Thank you for your love, for your prayers, and for your sacrificial gifts. Together over these many years we have impacted tens of millions of lives around the world, prayed for over 100 million people who came to us in their hour of need, and seen over 900,000 souls we know of come to faith in Jesus Christ. Our work here is not quite finished, as God has called us to help lead this nation back to Him and His Truth! Please pray for me to know His wisdom and strenght each day, and for those who have been blessed and able to help me financially as our nation has that “Nineveh moment” in this year of VICTORY!!!

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

Bill Keller

Today is a Special Day as I Celebrate My 57th Birthday

Leave a comment

(Luke 4:18)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, thank you for another day of life. Let me never get so caught up in just ‘getting through the day” I don’t appreciate each day for the gift from You it is! Bless this day, and allow me to use it in some small way for your glory. Thank you for this life, and most of all, for my eternal relationship with You! In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

Today is a special day for me as I celebrate my 57th birthday. I never forget that tomorrow is promised to none of us and that each day is a gift from God. So I am most grateful for the Lord blessing me with these years of life, and am even more grateful that He allows me the honor of waking up each morning to serve Him.

My hand is to the plough, I am not looking back, and am so excited each morning at what God is going to do in people’s lives that day. I look forward to sharing the Truth of God’s Word and the hope and love of Jesus Christ with the lost and hurting in the world until He says my work is over and calls me home.

It is normal on your birthday to receive presents. You may get a new pair of shoes, some clothes, a watch, maybe a nice dinner out, or even something as extravagant as a new car. However, even though it is my birthday, I have a present for YOU today. It is better than new shoes, or new clothes, or a shiny watch. It is even better than a new car. My present to you today will actually add YEARS TO YOUR LIFE!

You see, I really do love you and care about you. I am so thankful for you being part of my life and I want you to be around for many years to come should Jesus tarry in His return. Even though it is God who will have the last word when our life is over, we can make the free will choices to do things that can literally shorten our days. So today, my present to you is how to live as long as you possibly can to enjoy this life and be a productive servant of our Lord until the moment He calls you home.

Over the past 186 months I have spoken many times on how our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit, and how we should do all that we can to keep our temples in the best shape possible. I have spoken often about how it is our responsibility to be in the best physical shape possible to be able to serve God to our best ability for as long as we possibly can.

Less than 10% of those reading this today exercise regularly or even try to eat the right foods. OVER 90% OF THOSE READING THIS TODAY ARE OVERWEIGHT AND THOSE EXTRA POUNDS ARE SHORTENING YOUR LIFE!!! Today I am going to help you lose weight. MORE IMPORTANTLY, KEEP THE WEIGHT OFF without spending thousands on joining a health club, buying machines, or becoming a slave to the latest pills or juices that will cost you $50 a month and NEVER do what they promise.

There are two elements required to lose weight. First is exercise. You MUST be on a disciplined exercise plan and be faithful to that plan to burn the calories necessary, not to mention the positive effects it has on your heart and muscles. Second is what you eat. There is NO way to lose weight, maintain your optimum weight, unless you are watching what you eat and drink. Sweets, soft drinks, alcohol, snack foods all have tons of calories that will put pounds on you.

If you are doing lots of exercise, you can get away with eating some things that are not the best for you to be eating, but you must be aware of all that you eat and drink. I hate to be over simplistic, but the fact is, if you are exercising regularly and watching what you eat, you can and WILL lose weight and MAINTAIN your ideal weight.

Please let me add this VERY IMPORTANT fact. Everyone has their own ideal weight. Genetics DO play a factor in this, and how God created our bodies is an issue. There are some people who simply will carry more weight than others. There is NOTHING wrong with being what some may consider overweight. Nobody can be the media’s definition of perfect, nor should we try. We have to use common sense and accept the fact that some people are simply created to carry more weight than others. The key is, are you where YOU need to be at for YOUR body???

>From the amount of emails that I get every day, I know that this is a major >issue for many of you. Here is the secret. It is a battle like any other >battle you fight in life. It is first a spiritual battle. The strength you >get to stick to your exercise routine, to eat the right things each day, do >NOT come from a pill or from yourself, IT HAS TO COME FROM GOD!!! You need >to take the time each morning and pray to God for the strength and >diligence to stick to your exercise plan and what you eat. IN YOUR OWN >STRENGTH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE! People fail in their sincere efforts in this >area because they have left out the spiritual element to it.

FORGET THE $50 A MONTH PILL OR JUICE AND REPLACE IT WITH PRAYER! All that pill or juice does is remind you that this is a commitment that you have made. Period. Prayer will not only remind you, but strengthen you to stick to it and see victory!!!

I love you and care about you so much and am grateful to be able to give you this present today! I will be praying for you that God will inspire you to take action in this area of your life. HE IS SPEAKING TO YOU ABOUT ADDING YEARS TO YOUR LIFE! You don’t need the latest pill or juice to lose weight.

You need to exercise, watch what you eat, and PRAY! That is the special element. God will give you the strength and motivation to get victory over this area of your life. He will help you. Like in all things, when we are serious and ask God to help us, HE WILL!!! You will not only lose the weight you desire, but keep it off as long as you are willing to exercise, watch what you eat, and pray about this daily!

Losing weight and maintaining a certain weight is like every other battle we face. We must have a battle plan that we work faithfully each day, and that plan must include accountability to others and God. We aren’t strong enough to get and maintain victory on our own. We need to have others in our life to hold us accountable and to keep us where we need to be in our day-to-day actions. I realize that this is an issue with many who are reading this right now. Know today that there is hope, there is victory waiting for you!

Exercise, pay attention to what you eat, have people in your life who will hold you accountable to your exercise routine and what you eat, and pray daily for God to give you the strength and resolve to stick to the plan. IT WILL ADD YEARS TO YOUR LIFE! This is an important issue because the better you feel, the better shape you are in, the more fit you are, the better you will be able to serve and glorify God with your life for many years to come!

***If you would like to give me a great birthday present, pray about a gift of Liveprayer of $57 ($1 for each year), $570 ($10 for each year), or $5700 ($100 for each year)! There is nothing I desire more each day than to see souls saved, the Truth of God’s Word heard in the marketplace, and to see this nation repent. YOUR love, prayers, and sacrificial support is what allows me to do all God has called me to do and I thank you as together we turn our nation back to the Almighty and His Truth!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller
