The “Blood Moons” Con is Simply the Latest on Christians

Leave a comment

(Revelation 6:12-14, Acts 2:20, Joel 2:31)

***ASK BILL: You recently shared your views on the recent movies, “Noah” and “Son of God.” How do you view older movies like “The Greatest Story ever Told” and “King of Kings?”

ANSWER: While “Ben Hur,” “Barabbas,” “The Ten Commandments,” the ones you mentioned, and others all took some “creative liberties,” the older Biblical movies held VERY CLOSE to the Scriptures. THEY HAD NO CHOICE!!! The church in that day would have been outraged, would have spoken loud and clear IN THE SECULAR MARKETPLACE where they lived and ministered about any blasphemous representations of God’s Word. Sadly, elementary Sunday School children were more Biblically literate back in the days of those movies than the vast majority of today’s adult Christians! When those movies were being made, Hollywood would have never thought for a second of creating anything that wasn’t as true to the Biblical account as possible!!!

The “blood moons” con is simply the latest on Christians! As the fervor over the “blood moons” began to intensify about 2 months ago, finally hitting the mainstream Christian news services along with a handful of secular news agencies about a month ago, I could only shake my head as I thought of “The Prayer of Jabez,” and more recently “The Harbinger.”

“The Prayer of Jabez,” authored by Bruce Wilkinson, comes from 1 Chronicles 4:9,10 and is the prayer to God by a man named Jabez. Soon after it was published in 2000, the book was being marketed by insinuating people could pray this prayer in repetition in order to bring them fortune and blessings. These type of books always have to take Scripture out of context in order to make such false claims, preying on people’s Biblical illiteracy. THERE ARE NO MAGIC PRAYERS. WE PRAY TO GOD IN FAITH TRUSTING IN HIS PROVIDENCE, NOT MAGICAL WORDS!

All I can tell you about “The Harbinger” is that there is not ONE THING in that book that people haven’t been reading in the Liveprayer Daily Devotional…FOR FREE…regarding the signs of the judgment of God on this nation for the past 15 years, LONG before anyone ever heard of Rabbi Cahn. However, I don’t charge for anything I write or produce at Liveprayer, and I certainly don’t go on the Christian media circuit in order to hype people up so I can sell them something!

Just like “Jabez” and “Harbinger,” the “blood moons” ARE tied to Scripture. They are directly referred to in Revelation 6:12-14, Acts 2:20, and Joel 2:31, indirectly in a few other passages. Anyone who has read even two of the Liveprayer Daily Devotionals knows that there is NOBODY on the face of the earth that stands stronger and advocates for the Bible being God’s inspired, inerrant Word, representing Absolute Truth, and our final authority in ALL matters than I do!

My issue with the “blood moons” hysteria is not about its’ Biblical predicate, but how that Biblical predicate is being taken out of context, perverted, and marketed by and endless array of people looking to cash in on Christianity’s version of psychics and fortune tellers. These people work in the area of Bible prophecy and end-times events.

In brief, the “blood moons” are to appear this year on April 15th and October 8th, and next year on April 4th and September 28th. The “blood moon” occurs during a lunar eclipse and the bloody red color is caused by refraction of sunlight by the Earth’s atmosphere. The Biblical significance is that the “blood moons” are tied to the end-times and Israel, especially since these four will occur during Passover, the Feast of Tabernacles, and the Feast of Trumpets, which is a rare occurrence.

Like in ALL end-times events, there are competing explanations (all are in, or soon to be in, books to sell to you). The most common belief is that the “blood moon” is a bad sign for the people of Israel and means war. It is also believed that a “big event” will happen in Israel due to the “blood moon.”

There are some very sound, Godly, Bible prophecy teachers like Hal Lindsey, Jack Van Impe, and Perry Stone to name a few. However, in the end, they don’t agree on much since eschatology, or the study of the end times, is so subjective. Despite the persuasive claims they all make about certain end-times events, very little will be definitively known until those events actually unfold.

The main driver of the “blood moons” hype with surprise, surprise, a new book he is all over the Christian TV world selling on that very subject, is Pastor John Hagee. Years ago, Hagee discovered a huge financial bonanza by preaching almost exclusively on the end-times and creating an organization linking Christians and the Jewish people, cashing in on the love Christians have for God’s chosen people.

Hagee doesn’t preach the Gospel to the Jewish people, telling them Jesus WAS the Messiah they were waiting for and that they had the same responsibility to their sin every man does since that would be bad for his business with Jewish leaders in Israel he depends on. Even though they were, are, and always will be God’s chosen people collectively, individually without faith in Christ they will die and burn in hell like anyone else who rejects faith in Christ.

Instead, he began to preach a lie known as the “dual covenant theology” which teaches that Gentiles can only be saved by faith in Jesus, but by virtue of simply being Jewish, a Jewish person is saved! Hagee has proven a willingness to sell out the faith for money by his public endorsement of satanic Mormon cult member Glenn Beck, even allowing Beck to speak to his Pro-Israel organization! In exchange for helping Beck perpetuate his lie to the public that He is a Christian, Hagee gets to sell his books via Beck’s various media outlets. MONEY OVER SOULS!

That is why I rarely get into the end times. It is interesting to talk about, study, but certainly nothing I choose to spend too much of my precious time on after exhaustive study of this issue during my seminary days. The fact is, most of the end times events are very subjective and speculative. They generate incredible amounts of money for those who sell books, DVDs, and speak on the end-times, since people have an insatiable desire to know the future.

It is the same desire that fuels those who promote themselves as psychics, fortune tellers, and seers, who are at best carnival acts, and at worse operating in demonic powers. That is why I also am VERY leery of those who promote themselves in the church as a “prophet. ” A modern day prophet is a FORTHTELLER, declaring what is in accordance with what the Bible teaches, as opposed to the OT Prophets who God showed the future to (they were FORETELLERS) before the Bible was complete.

I love you and care about you so much. Regardless of who the players are during the final chapters of human history end up being, what order the events actually unfold, whether it ends up being pre-trib, mid-trib, post-trib, the two most critical facts are already known and guaranteed by God’s word. First, Jesus can return at any second, though only God Himself knows that exact day and hour. Second, when it is all over God wins!!! In all honesty, what more do we really need to know?

That is why I use my precious minutes each day to deal with the today we have, rather than focusing on a tomorrow we may never see. I am more concerned with bringing God’s Truth to the lost and hurting, ministering to the daily needs of people saved and lost alike, sharing the Gospel so that those without Jesus in their heart and life have the opportunity to make that most critical decision by faith.

Like Y2k, the end of the world as foolishly predicted by Family Radio’s Harold Camping, the Mayan calendar, the four “blood moons” will come and go. Will there be a “big event” in Israel? Will there be war in Israel? Sadly, big events occur in Israel all the time and war is always imminent. Whatever does or doesn’t happen, God will be in control. For me, that is enough.

*Note: I get emails daily asking what good books I would recommend. I tell them there is only ONE book I ever recommend. Unfortunately, it is a book less than 10% of professing Christians have ever read cover to cover. It is called the BIBLE and you can know the author in the most intimate and personal way possible if you choose to!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

David and Goliath

Leave a comment

(1 Samuel 17:1-50)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, your poll question last week is very timely since our church is faced with this exact situation. We are being asked to help fund a ministry that the Board of Directors is headed by a “married lesbian.” I have heard both sides but still have no clear answer about funding this “mission work.” What do you say?

ANSWER: Funny, I have had church mission boards turn down requests from people in their congregation had made to help support Liveprayer because I was too “controversial” and “divisive!” If there is ever a question that makes my point of how “soft” and compromised the church is in the year of 2014, this is it. Sadly, this is NOT an isolated situation and is being faced by supposed Christian churches and denominations across the nation. The very clear point that nobody should miss is that this is even an issue being discussed and debated! Would you hire a child molester to be on the Board of a charity dealing with children? NO??? Why not??? How can any organization that claims to be a “Christian organization” such as a church, even bring such a topic to the table? What is there to discuss? Why not put baby-killing advocates on the Board of a Pro-Life ministry? As a side, I would immediately RUN from any church that even discussed this in the first place, making sure the pastor was properly admonished and rebuked as I was on the way out the door!!!

David and Goliath! (From email) “I just wanted you to know how much Friday’s show revived my faith in God. Lately, I have been wondering if God would move in certain areas of life because it seemed that he hasn’t been listening to my prayers. But, when you preached about David and Goliath and faith, I could feel my spirit being revived and quicken.

It’s amazing how easily I could forget what God did for me in the past. But, the thing you said that ministered to and overwhelmingly blessed me the most was, your history with God is where your victory ultimately comes from. Hallelujah!!! That one state has set me free from fear and worry! Thank you Bill for allowing God to speak through you! My life will never be the same!

Link to Friday night TV program (the David and Goliath topic starts at the beginning of the second hour, apx 60 minutes into the program):

As you read these words below today, hopefully take a few minutes to watch the topic from this past Friday’s TV program, I know that at some point in your life you will have to battle Goliath. One of the reasons I exhort you each day to stay close to the Lord through time in prayer and the Word, through being in church to get that spiritual nourishment, to be in fellowship with other Believers, to find ways to serve God, is because we all have those sentinel moments in life when we will have to fight Goliath. At that moment you will either cower in your tent and refuse to fight like the armies of Israel and let your fear defeat you, or you will confidently go onto the battlefield knowing that victory is already yours like David did.

The word I want you to hear for your life today is that you will one day have to fight Goliath. It is not a matter of if, only when. Listen to me very closely now. You don’t defeat Goliath when you actually fight him, you defeat Goliath before you ever step onto the battlefield. This is very deep so let me say it again and listen carefully. You don’t defeat Goliath when you actually fight him, you defeat Goliath before you ever step onto the battlefield! Let me explain.

When you step onto the battlefield to fight Goliath, you are not going to have time to learn how to fight, you are not going to have time to come up with a strategy how to defeat the giant, you are not going to have time to develop the faith and trust in God to lead you to victory. These are all the things you better already know and have. If you don’t, it is no wonder why you would be afraid and are defeated before your battle with Goliath even begins.

Look at David. When he walked onto the battlefield with Goliath, he KNEW he would be victorious. How did he know that? He had fought battles in the past and had been victorious. When he was guarding his father’s sheep, he battled with a lion and won. When he was guarding his father’s sheep, he battled with a bear and won. David had been in battle before. He knew how to fight. More important, he had developed a great faith in God who gave him the strength to win those battles.

So when David was preparing to fight Goliath, he already knew that the same God who delivered him from the paw of the bear, the same God who delivered him from he paw of the lion, was the very same God who would delver him from the Philistine giant Goliath!!!

This is why I stress to you so often how critical it is to be in the Word every day, to be in prayer every day, to fellowship with other Believers, to be in church and be fed spiritually, to find ways to serve the Lord. All of these things you do each and every day help build you up spiritually and strengthen your faith, while you fight the daily battles of life and God leads you to victory. That way when you have your showdown with a real giant like Goliath, you can go into that battle with the confidence and knowledge that the same God who has led you to victory in the past is the very same God who will lead you to victory today.

The Bible teaches that God is no respecter of persons, that what God did for one…David.. He will do for another…YOU!!!

I love you and care about you so much. My word for you today is PREPARE! Prepare now for your battle with Goliath. It is not a matter of if that battle will happen, it is only a matter of when. The time to win that battle is now before it ever happens. Faithfully pray each day, faithfully read the Word each day, faithfully fellowship with other Believers, faithfully go to church to be fed spiritually, faithfully serve God. It is your faithfulness NOW that will lead you to victory when you fight Goliath.

I will be praying for you. Praying for you to know VICTORY in your life over those day-to-day battles we all face. It is watching God lead you to those daily victories that will give you the confidence and faith to trust Him when the major battles arise. God is a God of VICTORY. Let me leave you with this Truth. The same God who led you to victory over your battles 10 years ago, the same God who led you to victory over your battles 5 years ago, the same God who led you to victory over your battles last year, the same God who led you to victory over your battles last month, is the VERY SAME GOD who will lead you to victory over your battles tomorrow and lead you to victory when you fight Goliath!

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

Do You Run Away from Sin or Run To Sin

Leave a comment

(Genesis 39:12; 1 Peter 2:11)

***ASK BILL: The Bible seems to say that God has mercy on some but not all, and makes some people to be evil, dishonest, dishonorable, etc.

ANSWER: That is not accurate. God created man with freewill, the ability to make his own choices without interference. God’s grace and mercy DOES extend to all men, but sadly some choose to reject His grace and mercy and live in rebellion to their Creator. It is a CHOICE to sin, to rebel against God and the Truth of His Word.

This may seem like an easy question, but think carefully before you answer. Do you run away from sin, or do you run TO sin? If you answer honestly, you will have to admit that there have been times in your life when you were guilty of running towards sin, or at least NOT running away when you saw sin coming.

I have spoke in past Devotionals about the path of escape that God not only always provides, but promises! There is that instant, when your spiritual instincts are telling you exactly what to do. That my friend becomes YOUR moment of truth. Will you obey God and run away from sin? Or, do you ignore God and run to it, like the moth goes directly for the fire!

In today’s scripture, Joseph saw sin coming. Realizing his own human weakness, he literally ran from it. THERE IS NOTHING COWARDLY ABOUT RUNNING FROM SIN! Let me say this again. THERE IS NOTHING COWARDLY ABOUT RUNNING FROM SIN! As a matter of fact, it is an act of weakness and rebellion to God to NOT run from sin.

It is like saying, “OK sin, here I am, powerless to stand up to you — just run me over.” Anyone can do that. It takes spiritual maturity to see sin coming and flee from it. The Bible even tells us to “flee from sin.” It is an admonition that we need to take more seriously.

The question becomes, why don’t we run from sin? There are two answers to this. It is because we either, a) don’t trust our spiritual instincts enough to “see” sin coming, or, b) we simply love the sin more than the Lord at that moment.

That may sound harsh, but it is very true. Jesus told His disciples that if they loved Him, they would obey His commandments. As His disciples, we ultimately get the opportunity to show our love for Him often. It is usually in those cases when we have the opportunity to run from sin, or stay and indulge in it.

Remember the next time that you want to tell Jesus you love Him. Show Him by following His commandments. Show Him by RUNNING FROM SIN!

I love you and care about you very much. I realize that many of you are in difficult situations today because you have succumbed to sin’s temptations, you stayed instead of running. Running is hard. It actually requires a supernatural strength that we only possess through Christ.

Again, that is why that intimate daily relationship with Him is so critical to our daily walk. It not only strengthens us, but sharpens our spiritual instincts so we can see sin coming and run from it. I will be praying for you to really let these words today sink in.

For many, these are very difficult words, but necessary. They are said in love, to help you avoid falling into the traps the enemy sets for you. Let me leave you with this encouragement. God BLESSES obedience. Not only is it our most effective way of proving our love for the Lord, but a side benefit is God blesses our obedience.

I am convinced that Joseph reaped the blessings of God for His obedience. What God did for Joseph, He will do for you. He gave Joseph the spiritual instincts to see sin coming, the strength to run from sin, and than blessed him for his obedience! Remember that the next time you see sin coming . . . and RUN!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Your Secret Life

Leave a comment

(Psalm 90:8; Numbers 32:23; Ecclesiastes 12:14; Luke 12:2; Jeremiah 23:24)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, I believe Jesus was immaculately conceived by God and born of a virgin, but what about the sin of Mary? She wasn’t born without sin, so how did her sin not pass to Jesus?

ANSWER: That is why our Lord was immaculately conceived by the Holy Spirit and not by Joseph. The fact Mary was a virgin, does NOT mean she was sinless as some erroneous man-made Roman Catholic traditions teach. Despite being God’s vessel for the birth of our Lord, she was a human being, conceived in the normal way, and like ALL people, sinned during her life in addition to being born with “original sin” (the sin of Adam). If Jesus had been conceived by Joseph and Mary, their sin would have been passed on to Jesus just like Adam’s sin is passed on to each person born. Being conceived by the Holy Spirit allowed Jesus to be born void of original sin, and the fact He lived a sinless life, is why He could die on the cross for the sins of all mankind.

YOUR “secret life!” Nine years ago in the heart of the Midwest, a serial killer who operated for over 30 years was apprehended. This was not your typical serial killer, but was literally “the guy next door!” For 3 decades, the city of Wichita, Kansas was haunted by BTK (bind, torture, kill), a serial killer responsible for at least 10 deaths over a 30 year period. This brazen killer who became famous as much for taunting local law enforcement and the media was finally arrested on February 25th 2005, ending that city’s nightmare.

Perhaps as shocking as the long and brutal reign of this killer, is who BTK turned out to be. At the time he was apprehended, Dennis Rader was a 60-year-old man, married with grown children, who was not only a former Cub Scout leader but the church council president of his local Lutheran Church. He had been working as a code-enforcement supervisor. My friend, this is the guy who lives next door to you!!! However, Dennis Rader, for decades was living a secret life!

Do you have a secret life??? The truth is, right now this very moment, many of YOU are also living a secret life. Your secret life is not to the extreme of Rader’s where you are out killing people, but you live one life your family and friends see, while maintaining a completely separate life. Without a doubt, the secret life most people live, men AND women, involves sex.

Your secret life may be looking at porn on the Internet or watching X-movies on TV. For men it may be frequenting adult bookstores, strip clubs, massage parlors, or buying prostitutes, For men and women, it may be picking up someone at a club or bar, or getting involved in an affair with someone at work or even a neighbor. It is especially common in people who are often out of town on business where it is easy to live a secret life since nobody knows you. Your secret life my be swinging, BDSM, homosexuality, or other sexual perversions.

For other people their secret life involves spending money. They live a secret life that revolves around shopping and purchasing things that in most cases they don’t even need. This would also include those whose secret life is gambling. Years ago the former Secretary of Education and Drug Czar William Bennett had his secret life exposed to the world when it was revealed he had a million dollar gambling habit. With gambling now legal in most every state as well as available online, millions of people are currently leading a secret life that nobody knows about, spending hours and hours gambling away the resources God has entrusted to them.

For still other people, their secret life may be that of an abuser, a life only their husband, wife, and family knows about. Others live a secret life using alcohol and drugs. Years ago, the nation was shocked to learn of the battle former first lady Betty Ford had with alcohol, and just a decade ago it was revealed that talk radio king Rush Limbaugh was addicted to prescription pain medicine. The reality is, MANY people are living secret lives. These secret lives are born in sin. Guilt and shame and conscience drive people to do things in secret that they would never do if people knew. People who have a secret life are in bondage to sin!

One of the things that I share with you often is the huge price of sin. Sins costs. Sin also does not remain hidden forever. Please listen carefully to what I am about to share with you. SIN WILL ALWAYS BE EXPOSED! God will allow your sin to be exposed, it is only a matter of time. The sad reality is, we get so blinded by sin that we spend so much time, and effort, and energy covering up our sin. However, in the end, despite all that effort to hide our sin it will be exposed for the world to see. If we took that same amount of time, and effort, and energy into obeying God as we do in sinning against Him, instead of paying the price for our sins we would be enjoying the blessings of our obedience!!!

I love you and care about you so much. I realize that many of you reading these words today are actually living a secret life. Your secret life is not that of a serial killer, but in order to continue committing the sin you are in bondage to, you have had to live a totally separate life apart from the one most people know about. Please understand that it is no accident or no coincidence that God has allowed you to read these words today. He is speaking to your heart.

Let me give you a word of encouragement. If you are living a secret life, God is giving you an opportunity today to end that secret life now before you get in any deeper. The Lord wants to set you free from whatever sin you are in bondage to so that you can live your life in freedom, without having to lie, and hide, and plot, and scheme, simply to accommodate your sin. If you continue, it is only a matter of time before your sin is revealed, your secret life is exposed, and you end up paying a huge price.

I will be praying for you today my friend. Praying that you will listen to the voice of God and TURN from your sin, not tomorrow but today. Jesus is there, waiting to help you find the strength and courage to live your life free from the bondage of the sin you are in, so that you no longer have to live a secret life!

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

Bill Keller

Don’t Be Intimidated into Not Serving the Lord

Leave a comment

(Romans 1:25)

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, what caused Adam Lanza, the young man who killed those precious children and brave teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary, to do what he did? Mental illness, evil or both?

ANSWER: As the facts emerged, it became clear that mental illness, as in ALL of these shooting, was the predominant factor. Here is a Devotional I did on the issue of mental illness, and unless we as a nation put together a legitimate plan to start identifying those with some sort of mental illness, say a mandatory screening as a person enters the 10th grade, those who have these challenges will continue to suffer, and a small minority will commit serious acts that will take the life of, or greatly harm, innocent people. We know evil is from satan, and we know satan’s agenda is to kill, steal, and destroy, meaning he will use anything, such as a mental illness, to advance his evil agenda. Link to Devotional on this topic:
http://www.liveprayer.com/ddarchive3.cfm?id=4500

Don’t be intimidated into NOT serving the Lord! My friend, I have been writing every day for 175+ months now telling you how bold satan is. I don’t know if you have seen the latest “love gift” for donors of a Washington DC baby killing business. It is a silver coat hanger necklace! Recently Planned Parenthood was selling t-shirts that said, “I had an abortion.” A while back, Ms. Magazine actually had an article, “We Had Abortions,” accompanied by the names of thousands of women nationwide who signed a petition making that declaration. Even a few years ago, people would have never been bold enough to proclaim to the world that they killed their baby.

WE ARE LIVING IN A DAY WHEN SIN NO LONGER HAS ANY SHAME!!!

Those who call sin for what God calls it are mocked, laughed at, labeled as intolerant hate mongers, and dismissed as ignorant. The tide has now sufficiently turned that we are living in a time when it is CRIMINAL in some places to speak out against what God says in the Bible is sin. Since the church has abandoned the lost and hurting masses in the world, most people have no clue the incredible hurdles that exist today simply to take the truth of God’s Word and Gospel into the secular marketplace.

A 5-yr-old kindergarten girl in Florida was told by a lunchroom supervisor she wasn’t allowed to pray before her meal. People are told they will be fired for sharing their faith at work. We are asked in many social settings to NOT talk about our faith. Getting the most ungodly content that destroys lives out to the masses via the Internet, the secular media, and advertising is no problem. However, trying to take the truth of God’s Word and the Gospel to those same masses using the very same secular vehicles is becoming more difficult with each passing year and no doubt will soon be CRIMINAL.

You see my friend, SIN CANNOT STAND IN THE LIGHT OF THE TRUTH! The truth of God’s Word exposes sin for the lie that it is. That is why those who choose sin do their best to silence those proclaiming the truth of God’s Word. Today’s anchor verse tells us that there will come a day when they “exchange the truth for a lie.” It declares what we are seeing unfold before our very eyes today where the truth becomes a lie and a lie the truth!

Truth: Marriage is between a man and a woman Lie: Marriage is between two people regardless their gender.

Truth: Killing your baby is murder. Lie: It is a woman’s right to do what she wants with her body, including having an abortion.

Truth: Homosexuality is a sin. Lie: People are born gay and there is nothing wrong with having sex with someone of the same gender.

Truth: Divorce is a sin. Lie: Nobody really expects you to honor your marriage vows.

So what can you do? First, pray! Never underestimate the power of prayer. We need to pray for this nation to turn back to God and His Truth since it is the ONLY true answer. We need to pray for God to help us live our lives as true ambassadors of the Lord Jesus Christ. We need to pray for God to give us courage and boldness to proclaim the truth of His Word to those He brings into our life each day. Lastly, we need to pray for God to guide us and direct us where He wants us to be to serve Him. God has a plan and purpose for each one of our lives, and we must yield ourselves daily to Him so that He can work through our lives.

Second, share your faith and the truth of God’s Word with others. As the Daily Devotional often encourages you, witnessing is not an option but something God has commanded us to do. God will open the right doors, give you the opportunities each day. Your loudest witness will not be the words you speak, but the way you live your life. PEOPLE NOTICE. The child of God is “on” 24/7. How you live each day before others will always be your most effective witness for Christ.

Lastly, find ways to serve the Lord. God has work for everyone to do. Actually, as Jesus pointed out, there is more work than workers! God has called all of His children to serve Him, each in a unique way. As you seek the Lord He will open doors in your life, guide you where He wants you, and use your life to further the Kingdom of God. EVERY CHILD OF GOD HAS BEEN CALLED INTO HIS SERVICE! Serving God is how we fulfill our purpose in this life. Don’t be intimidated into NOT serving the Lord!

I love you and care about you so much. It is time for every child of God to do their part. We can’t sit back and expect politicians to solve the problems of this nation when the real problems are NOT political but spiritual!!! We can’t expect pastors and Christian leaders to do all the work. It is the responsibility of each and every child of God to do their part in serving the Kingdom. Somewhere the church became just another form of entertainment, losing its purpose which is to be a community of believers growing in their faith and being equipped and trained to go out into the world and serve our Lord.

I will be praying for you today to hear this clear challenge from God. Christianity was never intended to be a spectator sport! Take some time in the next 24 hours and get alone with God and start seriously seeking Him about what He wants you do to serve Him. It is time for every child of God to step up to the plate. It is time to do your part since the very soul of this nation is dependant upon God’s people rising up to lead this once great land back to the Almighty and His Truth!

DON’T BE INTIMIDATED INTO NOT SERVING THE LORD!!!

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

Bill Keller

A Reminder of What Islam is Really About Especially for Women

Leave a comment

(Genesis 1:27; Galatians 3:28)

**ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, what’s your take on Sid Roth? I understand he is a Jew and lately has been telling Christians not to forget the Jews in Israel who are Christians, and also to pray for those who are not Christians.

ANSWER: Sid is a Messianic Jew who has been serving the Lord faithfully for decades. For the record, a dear husband and wife who discipled me during the first days of my minsitry 20 years ago, introduced me to Sid. Sid gave my ministry the first $1,000 gift at a time when we were just starting in 1992. I have gotten to know him well, and he has a passion for souls. He was a big influence over the Jews for Jesus movement in the 70s and 80s. From his Jewish roots he knows the miracle working power of God, and has focused on that in his long running radio program Messianic Minute and current TV program. He is the real deal with a pure heart who I have watched faithfully serve the Lord during my 20 years in ministry.

***WATCH THIS SPECIAL YOUTUBE VIDEO MESSAGE TO MUSLIM WOMEN FROM BILL KELLER!

A reminder what Islam is really about, especially for women! Since the media refuses to tell you the truth about Islam because they have been intimidated into silence, it allows you to almost forget there are 1.3 BILLION Muslims worldwide who want ALL non-Muslims (infidels) dead with the goal to control every nation on the planet! Let me help to insure you NEVER FORGET! There is no such thing as ‘radical Islam” or “radical Muslims.” Any Muslim who practices Islam hears the same message, reads the same Qur’an, and believes the same thing all Muslims believe regardless if they are in Tehran, Riyadh, Cairo, Islamabad, Dearborn, Michigan, or Houston, Texas!!!

-A Christian in Pakistan was recently executed. His crime? Insulting the prophet Mohammed!!!

-A Christian woman in Cairo, Egypt was dragged out of her car by a gang of Muslims and killed. What did she do? Had a cross hanging on her rearview mirror!!!

-A movie about how Muslim women are treated, including those killed through “honor killings,” is being targeted by Muslims to keep it from every being seen, attempting to hide from the world the truth about the sad and pathetic life of a Muslim woman!!!

-The FBI is currently searching for an Army recruit who has told people he is planning on committing a “Ft. Hood style jihad” against military personnel!!!

-In Columbus, Ohio, there is a billboard that proclaims the lie “Jesus was a Muslim!” This is designed to cause confusion amongst the ignorant masses since Islam didn’t even exist until 600 years after the death of Jesus!!!

-ABC was prepared to launch a new program called, “Alice of Arabia.” CAIR and other Muslim advocacy groups intimidated the network into canceling the program because they claimed it perpetuated “anti-Muslim stereotypes!!!”

This is just a small microcosm of events over the past week. As I have shared before, thanks to the shrinking size of our world due to satellite television and the Internet, you can find examples from around the world each day demonstrating the hatred, violence, terror, and death perpetrated by Muslims worldwide. This is what the false religion of Islam has been about for the 1400 years since it was founded by a Mecca businessman Mohammed under the inspiration of satan himself!!!

In this male dominated false religion, women are treated as nothing more than property. In Islam, woman are not equal to men in any way. The Qur’an says that the testimony of a woman is not equal to that of a man. It says that the testimony of two women is required to be equal to the testimony of one man. Call in two male witnesses from among you, but if two men cannot be found, then one man and two women whom you judge fit to act as witnesses. (Qur’an 2:282 Dawood) Interestingly, Islam teaches the vast majority of those in hell are women. Ibn Abbas reported that Allah’s Messenger said: I had a chance to look into paradise and I found that majority of the people was poor and I looked into the Fire and there I found the majority constituted by women. (Muslim, vol. 4, hadith 6597, p. 1432).

In the false religion of Islam, beating women is not only common, but something their “holy book” encourages. “And those (wives) you fear may be rebellious admonish; banish them to their couches, and beat them.” (Qur’an 4:34, Arberry) Many hadiths encourage wife beating. Umar reported the Prophet as saying, “A man will not be asked about why he beat his wife.” (Mishkat Al-Masabih, p. 693: Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah) Mohammed was also recorded to have beat his wives.

Of course, a woman’s chief responsibility is to satisfy her husband sexually. Mohammad gave strong warnings to women who would not accommodate their husbands/masters desire. Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (p.) said, “If a man invites his wife to sleep with him an she refuses to come to him, then angels send their curses on her till morning.” (Bukhari, vol. 7, hadith 121, p. 93) For the Muslim man, upon his death he believes there will be many virgins waiting for him. “Surely for the godfearing awaits a place of security, gardens and vineyards and maidens with swelling breasts, like of age, and a cup overflowing.” (Qur’an 78:31-33, Arberry) In the world of Islam, women have no legal standing, and are little more than a man’s punching bag and sex object.

I love you and care about you so much. Never forget the truth about this false religion from the pits of hell itself! Why a woman would want to be part of the false religion of Islam is beyond me, though many have no choice. They are believed to be inferior to men and little more than slaves who exist for the benefit of men. I have no clue why any woman would want to be part of these lies from the pits of hell, especially when you know the TRUTH about women as God tell us in His Word. All throughout the Bible, women have played an incredible role in the plan of God. We see women being used by God in incredible ways, helping to fulfill His Divine plan. Women have always played a key role in God’s work, and I want to make sure we never lose sight of how important they are in the Kingdom of God.

THE LIE OF SATAN THROUGH THE TEACHINGS OF THE FALSE RELIGION OF ISLAM IS THAT WOMEN ARE INFERIOR TO MEN. THE TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD TEACHES THAT MEN AND WOMEN ARE EQUAL!!!

I want to encourage women who are following the lies of Islam that you are NOT inferior to a man. God made you EQUAL with men. He loves you, has a special plan and purpose for your life, and wants the best for you. The fact is a large percentage of women in Islam did not choose these beliefs or make a conscience decision to commit their lives to them, they were born or married into them. You cannot be born or married into Christianity. It is a choice, a decision you have to make to give your heart and life to Jesus. He loves you and wants to have an everlasting relationship with you. You don’t need your parents or a man or anyone else to know Jesus as your personal Savior. It is a relationship you enter into by faith.

The fact is that all of us, men and women, are born with the sin of Adam in addition to those sins we commit during our life. It is our sin that separates us from God our Creator. But God loved us so much, He sent Jesus to die for our sins. That is why it is faith in Jesus alone, not Mohammed, but the Jesus of the Bible who is GOD that will save your soul. It is not too late. You can turn from the lies of Islam today and ask Jesus into your heart and life by faith and He will. Take a moment, pray, and ask God to open your heart and watch this video clip:

The Equivalent to the Furnaces of the Nazi Death Camps are Still Burning in 2014!

Leave a comment

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

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, based on the statement you made in yesterday’s Devotional about the small percentage of Christians who have ever led anyone to faith in Jesus, I honestly don’t know if I have or not. When the opportunity has presented itself, I have always done my best to acquaint people with what the Bible says about salvation. I’d like to think at least one person might have followed up and came to accept the Lord as their Savior by faith, but I truly don’t know and guess I’ll have to wait until Heaven before I find out. Thoughts?

ANSWER: I probably should have been more articulate in that statement, since of course it is up to each person to accept or reject Christ by faith. More correct, it is still a very small percentage of Believers who have even WITNESSED their faith to someone who was lost and without Christ in their life. As God told the “watchman” in Ezekiel 33, if you fail to share the Gospel with a lost soul and they die and end up in hell, their blood is on your hands. However, if you share with them the Gospel and they choose to reject it, your hands are clean. ALL followers of Jesus Christ are commanded to share their faith, a commandment only a small percentage obey.

The equivalent to the furnaces of the Nazi death camps are still burning in the year 2014!!! 70 years after the furnaces in places like Auschwitz, Belzec, Sorbibor, and Tremblinka were extinguished, they are back in business in hospitals located in the U.K. Several hospitals in the U.K. are incinerating aborted children as clinical waste, or BURNING THEM TO HELP HEAT THE HOSPITALS!!!

Have I got your attention??? You can sit there and be outraged by what is happening in the U.K., asking how in the year 2014 could such an atrocity happen, but are you equally as outraged over the apx. 4,000 innocent babies we slaughter in the United States alone every 24 hours???

This nation not just murders apx. 4,000 innocent babies every 24 hours, it CELEBRATES infanticide! A major cable news network MSNBC, a division of NBC owned by media giant Comcast, 24/7 promotes, advocates for, cheerleads, and actually CELEBRATES the slaughter of innocent babies in this nation as does the vast majority of the media! Of course, they do it under the guise of “protecting women’s reproductive rights” and “championing women’s health issues.” These are nothing but codewords like “choice” for the support of killing innocent babies!!!

Want another great example? The University of Michigan recently paid an artist named Heather Ault $1,000 to display a piece of her “art” that is a painting with the words, “Abortion is a Gift from God!” How many times have I told you about the boldness of satan’s minions that is sharply contrasted by the timidity of God’s people???

Here is why abortion IS a big deal. Did you ever wonder if there is a correlation between the fact we started to legally kill babies in this nation in 1973, about the same time we began to see a massive spiritual decline in this nation? Coincidence? I think not! Just like in our individual lives, our nation’s blessings are tied to our obedience to God. Legally killing babies is a big deal since how can we ever expect God to bless a land that is flooded with the blood of incident babies?

I know that it is not politically correct to talk about abortion any longer. Sadly, very few nationally-known pastors will EVER talk about this issue. It is bad for their business. Those who look to fill their churches with warm bodies through man-made marketing plans like seeker/purpose driven/emerging church/prosperity gospel by preaching a watered down and compromised message, don’t like the abortion issue since it makes people uncomfortable. Except for a handful of brave Catholic bishops and priests, you hear virtually nobody from the church in the marketplace taking a stand against this blatant act of infanticide.

I have been saying for years that this one issue alone is enough to bring down God’s wrath and judgment on this nation. Sadly, President Bush lied to those who voted for him about working to minimize abortions, and squandered our last real opportunity we may ever have to deal with this issue politically. President Obama is a stanch defender of the practice of infanticide and the most pro-death President in history. He is a hero to those in the pro death movement and the business of killing babies around the world has flourished under Obama.

Those who defend him state that it is the law, that he is only upholding the law. The fact is, he has voted 100% of the time during his political career to uphold the legalized killing of babies, including late-term abortionswhich is the most heinous act of aborting perfectly viable babies who could have survived outside the womb if allowed to live. I contend that any politician who votes to uphold abortion has the blood of innocent babies on their hands and is truly an evil person!!!

As a side note. For those in the pro-death movement who want to make believe this is about women’s health or reproductive rights, that is a bunch of garbage. This is about the LIFE OF A HUMAN BEING! I agree a woman has the right to do whatever she wants with her body, BUT NOT THE BODY OF SOMEONE ELSE! That baby may be inside her, but it is still a separate human life created by God!

I love you and care about you so much. The atrocious act of using aborted babies to heat hospitals in the U.K. is probably something most people simply don’t even care about. That is only further proof of how callous most have become when it comes to the act of killing innocent babies. I refuse to be silent on what is by far the most critical spiritual issue there is. You simply can’t close your eyes and act like this brutal act of murder doesn’t exist.

I see the Hollywood crowd and people who normally spit in the face of God get so upset about the atrocities in Darfur and other places on the globe. Why aren’t these same people as upset with the fact every 24 hours we slaughter 4,000 innocent babies??? Where is their outrage about this daily act of infanticide happening on our very soil???

On the Liveprayer.com homepage, we have a special 55 second video clip of an actual abortion being performed. If you have not watched it, YOU MUST! This is what happens to over 4,000 innocent babies EVERY DAY in this nation! Since God led me to get this footage and put it on the website nearly two years ago, we have had over 30,000 emails from women we know of who were contemplating having an abortion, watched the video, and changed their mind (Watch the incredible testimony of baby Delilah also on that same link).

Link: http://www.liveprayer.com/aborsion.cfm

Despite the several death threats and scathing emails I get every month just from having that video on my website, I want the world to see what really happens to millions of babies here in the United Sates and around the world every year. Abortion is a big deal since it not only kills 1.5 million babies in this nation alone, but it is already bringing down the wrath and judgment of God on this nation for the practice of infanticide.

While not minimizing the horrors of the Holocaust in any way, a modern day holocaust has been occurring in the United States DAILY for the past 41 years since this nation’s Supreme Court legalized infanticide, an act of rebellion against God and His Word that has ripped out the soul of this nation!!!

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

Bill Keller
