My Faith Today is at An All Time Low

Leave a comment

(1 Corinthians 15:57)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, this nation is under your judgment for our sin, wickedness, and rebellion. Help me to be courageous as I stand for you in these perilous times. Use me as a beacon of your light in the darkness of our world today. Though our enemies surround us, the world around me curses you, help me to stand for your Truth that will ultimately defeat the lies of satan. May the evil of this world become so apparent, people will begin to bow their knee to you in repentance knowing YOU are their only hope and only answer! In the name of Jesus…AMEN!!!

Blessings my dear friend! After faithfully ministering to literally tens of millions worldwide over 24 years now, 17 years of Liveprayer online and on TV, I desperately need your prayers today. Despite this journey of faith I have been on for the past 24 years, despite knowing God is faithful having watched Him work in my life and the lives of millions and millions of people around the world each day over these many years, I am still flesh and blood!

My faith today is at an all-time low. Much of it is simple frustration. I “see” so much, and God has “shown” me so much. I do my best to convey this to you each day in our brief time together via the Daily Devotional and the TV program that impacts lives and leads people to faith in Christ each day.

I am thankful for that infrastructure that allows me each day to reach so many worldwide with His Truth and hope. Knowing how much more we could do for the Lord, the incredible numbers of people we could impact if we had the proper funding hurts. What hurts worse though is seeing our basic infrastructure and ministry operations currently at risk simply because we can’t pay our bills.

I know deep down that satan is doing all he can to slow me down, ultimately wanting to take me out. I realize the enemy views me as a HUGE threat because no matter what he has thrown at me over decades now I won’t be silenced, can’t be bought, and will look him in the eye and rebuke his lies. Satan also knows that people around the world find Truth here, find hope here, and find salvation through faint in Christ here!

I KNOW THIS IS ULTIMATELY A SPIRITUAL BATTLE AND I REFUSE TO QUIT OR BACK DOWN. LIVES, SOULS, AND THE SOUL OF THIS NATION ARE AT STAKE!!!

I am pouring my heart out to you today because ALL I have ever asked God for is to meet our basic needs. I have NEVER asked Him for personal wealth, or for power, or for prestige. I could really care less if anyone even knows my name. I have NO DESIRE for any legacy when I die other than the eternal legacy of those lives God has allowed me to impact for His Kingdom!

I am ashamed and hate to be to the point I have to even write a message like this, but if I don’t Liveprayer won’t see the rest of this year. I don’t cry wolf and would never waste your time sending you this urgent plea if I wasn’t at a place where I desperately need everyone’s prayers and help today! As the past years have unfolded with the economic struggle so many have faced, simply covering our basic operating expenses is a DAILY battle. Every minute I spend fighting that battle, is a minute I can’t be ministering to people’s needs.

IF THERE WAS EVER A TIME I NEEDED YOU TO HELP ME IT IS NOW! I NEED EVERYONE TO TAKE A MOMENT, PRAY, AND SEEK THE LORD WHAT HE IS ASKING YOU TO DO TO HELP ME. PLEASE, MAKE A SPECIAL YEAR-END GIFT TO LIVEPRAYER TODAY! I WOULD NOT ASK YOU IF I DIDN’T NEED EVERYONE TO MAKE THE MOST GENEROUS SACRIFCE THEY CAN TODAY! Donation: http://www.liveprayer.com/donation.cfm

I have no staff left other than my assistant and technical crew for the Internet operations. I haven’t taken a paycheck for nearly 8 years now, only my basic living expenses. I have cut and sacrificed to the point I am putting in incredibly long days, gladly so, simply to keep our basic infrastructure we must have to do the work God has called us to do. I am simply sharing this to let you know I would never ask you or anyone to make the sacrifice to help me if I wasn’t willing to sacrifice all I could first!

We still have $2,000 from our March internet operations that has to covered, along with the $65,000 we require for our April internet and TV operations. $25,000 of that is now seriously past due!

—>I DESPERATELY need $27,000 TODAY. That would leave $40,000 left to cover the balance of our April operations over the next 5 days. If everyone will pray, and if everyone who is able will give as you are able to give, I know by the end of the month in just 5 days we can be 100% current with all of our basic operations.

FOR THE PAST 17 YEARS, GOD HAS CALLED ON KEY PEOPLE EACH MONTH WHO HE HAD BLESSED AND GIVEN THE ABILITY TO STEP UP AND SUPPORT HIS WORK HERE AT LIVEPRAYER WITH A GIFT OF $5,000, $10,000, $20,000, AND SEVERAL TIMES $100,000, IN ORDER TO KEEP LIVEPRAYER FUNDED.

OUR DAILY PRESENCE AND FAITHFULNESS TO GOD’S WORK FOR OVER 15 YRS ONLINE AND 12 YEARS ON TV IS OUR TESTIMONY TO THOSE GOD HAS BLESSED WITH RESOURCES TO HELP US WITH A SIGNIFICANT GIFT IN THE PAST, AND THOSE WHO GOD HAS BLESSED AND IS SPEAKING TO TODAY TO HELP ME NOW!!!

*I AM PRAYING FOR ONE OR TWO OF OUR FRIENDS TODAY TO STEP UP AT THIS CRITICAL HOUR AND INSURE THE $27,000 WE MUST HAVE IS COVERED! IF YOU CAN GO THE EXTRA MILE AND DIRECT DEPOSIT YOUR GIFT IN OUR WELLS FARGO ACCOUNT, PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND I WILL GET YOU THE ACCOUNT INFORMATION. IT THAT ISN’T CONVENIENT YOU COULD WIRE THE FUNDS OR OVERNIGHT A CHECK TO OUR OFFICE IN ST. PETERSBURG. OF COURSE, YOU CAN ALSO PUT YOUR GIFT ON A CREDIT CARD OR SEND IT VIA PAYPAL ON OUR WEBSITE.

After 17 years of ministering to tens of millions worldwide, seeing over 1 million souls we know of come to faith in Jesus, Liveprayer is in a critical place. I will keep being faithful until we simply can’t operate any longer, but for what some ministries pay for to simply put gas in their private jet or maintain their many buildings for a month, we can continue to be here bringing God’s Truth and the hope and love of Christ to the lost and hurting masses worldwide each day!!! PLEASE, WILL YOU HELP ME TODAY???

I love you and care about you so much. I have poured my life into the lives of those people God brings to Liveprayer each day. I ask people for nothing other than to open their heart to God’s Truth and the love of Jesus. I don’t write books, sell trinkets, or play any of the plethora of games I could to turn Liveprayer into just another marketing organization masquerading as a ministry. EVERYTHING we do and make available is for FREE. It always has been and always will. I will close down before I sell out the Lord and His Truth!

Please, I am asking everyone to pray today. I am asking you to make a real sacrifice to help me at this desperate time, to pray about getting out of your comfort zone. I can’t continue without your prayers and your sacrificial support. I am not asking for anything for myself, only to be able to be here for so many lost and hurting people each day around the world who need God’s Truth and the hope we have in Christ.

LESS THAN 1/4 OF 1% OF THE PEOPLE WE MINISTER TO EVERY GIVE A DIME TO HELP LIVEPRAYER COVER ITS’ BASIC OPERATIONS. IT IS YOUR SACRIFICE THAT ALLOWS THAT TO HAPPEN, AS IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE FEW HAVE ALWAYS FED THE MANY!!!

Thank you for praying, and thank you for giving as you are able and making that sacrifice. Together, we CAN see this lost nation turn back to God and His Truth while leading millions of lost souls to faith in Jesus Christ!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

I Had an Epiphany A While Back

Leave a comment

(Revelation 1:11-3:22)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, this nation is under your judgment for our sin, wickedness, and rebellion. Help me to be courageous as I stand for you in these perilous times. Use me as a beacon of your light in the darkness of our world today. Though our enemies surround us, the world around me curses you, help me to stand for your Truth that will ultimately defeat the lies of satan. May the evil of this world become so apparent, people will begin to bow their knee to you in repentance knowing YOU are their only hope and only answer! In the name of Jesus…AMEN!!!

I had an epiphany a while back. I am tired of having to pray every day for the finances of this ministry. I am tired of people sending me nasty and hateful emails. I am tired of warning people of God’s coming judgment. So I decided to start a new church. It will be THE best church man has ever known. You will be able to come every Sunday and never have to worry about feeling convicted because of the choices you are making. You will never have to hear about things like sin, service, or sacrifice. No, you just come each Sunday knowing that nobody will ever judge you or tell you how to live because you will be at . . . THE CHURCH OF ANYTHING GOES!

I’m going to start this new church in Tampa, Florida where I live. I was thinking about a good place to meet and realized The Church of Anything Goes is going to be so popular we won’t be able to hold services in a normal building. So I’m going to call the Glazers who own the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and rent Raymond James Stadium on Sunday mornings. RJ holds about 70,000 people and that may not even be large enough, since I have no doubt people will be running to attend services at The Church of Anything Goes. Within a year we will have branches of this new church in every city, town, and village in the U.S., and within two years, all over the world.

In planning some outreaches for The Church of Anything Goes, I came up with three right away. The first is an Adultery Pride Parade. I am so tired of seeing people who are only being themselves and have to have sex outside of their marriage being told they are wrong. After all, everyone knows 99% of the people who are married commit adultery. Everyone knows that people are born to have sex with multiple partners. I can’t understand why people are so intolerant, so judgmental of others who aren’t bothering them. Didn’t God say, “be fruitful and multiply?” God created people to have sex so why are people so upset with people who are married having sex with people who aren’t their spouse?

Those who have sex outside of their marriage have been made to feel shame long enough. It is time for them to “come out” and be proud of who they are. Why should anyone be ashamed of being an adulterer? A parade is the perfect answer. Marching up and down the streets of America, proudly proclaiming that, “I’m an adulterer!” Floats, balloons, marching bands, a real time to celebrate the joy of committing adultery. I can see this parade being broadcast on TV just like the Rose Parade on New Years or the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.

The second outreach for the new Church of Anything Goes is going to be political. I don’t know about you, but I think it is a shame that in this great country of such diversity, people who enjoy having sex with animals are treated like second class citizens, denied their basic human rights, discriminated against. If you happen to love a pig and people at your job find out about it, you are most likely going to be terminated. If you try to buy a new home for you and your chicken that are in a committed relationship, chances are good that you will be denied. If your significant other happens to be a goat, they aren’t going to be eligible for the same benefits married couples receive. A man and his sheep should be able to adopt children! How dare states limit marriage to a man and a woman, when a woman and her horse have every right to enjoy the happiness and fulfillment and full legal benefits of marriage.

No doubt one of the first outreaches of The Church of Anything Goes will be to help insure the legal rights of those men and women, who by no fault of their own, were born to have sex with animals. In addition, we will start public awareness campaigns to help society be more tolerant. A good place to start will be in the schools, educating children through clubs and curriculum that there is nothing wrong with people who choose to have sex with animals. That is simply who they are, and just because you have a mother and father, some children have a dad and a goat.

The third big outreach we will have each year is Swap Days at Disney. The Church of Anything Goes will be a very popular church among those who like to trade wives and husbands. Swingers from all over the country can come to Disney one weekend a year and literally take over the facilities. They will book all the hotels and, of course, no need to close any room doors during Swap Days. They can go to the Magic Kingdom with their wife one day, visit the Animal Kingdom with their friend’s wife the next, go to Epcot the next day with someone else’s wife, the possibilities are endless. After all, even though Disney promotes itself as a “family friendly” theme park, we all know that as long as a group can bring them millions of dollars they welcome them with open arms.

Okay, I better stop before too many of you start heading to St. Petersburg to have me committed. Because I have been doing this for so long and know some of you may have taken me seriously, let me state for the record that I was being facetious. Let me now be very serious. As much as I wish The Church of Anything Goes was a fictional church, I am sad to say that it really does exist. Of course they don’t have the guts to use that name, but in essence that is exactly how they operate. You will never hear about sin, how God expects us to live according to His Word, or about surrendering our lives to Him. You will only hear about how “God is love,” and all you have to do is try, and that we all sin so don’t worry about it, and most of all, do whatever makes you happy.

These are the churches that treat God’s Word like a “nice book with some good thoughts,” but not something you should take seriously. These are the churches where you will find gross sins like homosexuality, murdering babies, fornication, people living together without being married, and many others accepted and tolerated because they don’t want to “offend” anyone. In these churches, Truth is not found in the Bible but is whatever you want it to be. These churches tell people there really is no place called Hell and there are many roads leading to God. Such churches are an abomination to God and a stench in His nostrils!!!

I love you and care about you so much. Sadly, too many churches have turned into The Church of Anything Goes. Once we compromise the Absolute Truth of God’s Word, once that Book stops being our final authority in all matters, it literally does become a church that anything goes because you are now left solely to the imaginations of men to decide what is right and wrong. There is only ONE TRUTH my friend, and that is found in the Bible. There is only ONE WAY to God, and that is through faith in His Son Jesus Christ.

You may have found the first 7 paragraphs somewhat humorous, but if you go back and read them again they are actually very chilling. All I really did was take the prevailing mindset of this world and how it actually operates. People who have chosen to live in gross sin DO have parades to express their “pride” in the sin they have chosen. People who sin DO make excuses for their sin to try and justify how they choose to live, even using God’s Word out of context despite the fact they live in rebellion to that very Word. There really ARE tremendous political efforts underway and programs that exist to indoctrinate children in an effort to force society to accept as normal the sinful choices certain men and women make.

May we pray that in these last days the CHURCH, the Bride of Christ and God’s number one instrument of change in our world will not be like those 7 churches in the Book of Revelation, but remain true to His Word and the work of equipping the saints and reaching the lost. Now more than ever the church must rise up to be all God calls it to be as we share the Truth of His Word and the hope and love of Christ with this lost and hurting world.

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

At the Name of Jesus Every Knee Should Bow and Every Tongue Confess that Jesus Christ is Lord

Leave a comment

(Philippians 2:10,11)

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

The Bible says at the name of Jesus EVERY knee should bow, and EVERY tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. The actual Greek in this passage says MUST bow. The fact is my friend, there will come a day in the life of EVERY living person when they will bow their knee to Jesus and confess Him as Lord! The only question that remains is WHEN they will do it.

God has given man the free will to accept His free gift of everlasting life through faith in Jesus Christ, or reject that gift. That is a choice each person must make during their life. The fact is, the Bible warns us that tomorrow is promised to none of us. That is why the Word says TODAY is the day of salvation. The reality is, you may not see tomorrow. So the ultimate choice each living person has to make is to bow their knee to Jesus and confess Him Lord and receive God’s free gift of everlasting life, or reject Christ in this life and spend eternity separated from God.

EVEN THOUGH A PERSON MAY CHOOSE TO REJECT CHRIST DURING THIS LIFE, THERE WILL COME A MOMENT WHEN THEY DIE AND STAND BEFORE GOD WHEN THEY WILL BOW THEIR KNEE TO JESUS AND CONFESS HIM TO BE LORD BEFORE THEY ARE SENTENCED TO ETERNITY IN HELL!!!

When Pontius Pilate died, he bowed his knee to Jesus and confessed Him to be Lord! When Nero died, he bowed his knee to Jesus and confessed Him to be Lord! When Buddha died, he bowed his knee to Jesus and confessed Him to be Lord! When Gandhi died, he bowed his knee to Jesus and confessed Him to be Lord! When Hitler died, he bowed his knee to Jesus and confessed Him to be Lord! When Madelyn Murray O’Hare died, she bowed her knee to Jesus and confessed Him to be Lord! When Mohammad Attah died, he bowed his knee to Jesus and confessed Him to be Lord! When any person dies that has rejected Christ, before they are cast into everlasting darkness they will bow their knee to Jesus and confess Him to be Lord!!!

Sadly, there are many people walking this planet today that have chosen to live their lives in complete rebellion to God and to His Word. They have rejected Jesus Christ in their life and refuse to acknowledge Him for who He is. You can’t force anyone to believe, you can only share with them the Good News and the truth of God’s Word and pray for them to open their heart to that truth. But the fact remains, they will at some point bow their knee to Jesus and confess Him to be Lord.

I love you and care about you so much. For those who have already bowed your knee to Jesus and confessed Him to be Lord, you have the assurance of everlasting life with your Savior when this brief journey here is over. That is why no matter what may be happening in this world, we can never lose sight of the fact that our hope is in a better place. Like those heroes of faith we read about in Hebrews 11, we long for a better country, a heavenly one. A place where we will dwell with God our Creator for all of eternity.

For those who are reading this today that have not bowed your knee to Jesus and have not confessed Him to be Lord, I am praying for you. He loved you enough to die for your sins so that you could not only receive everlasting life, but know true joy, true peace, and true abundance in this life as well. I pray that you will take a moment right now and ask God to open your heart and then read the words at this link: http://www.liveprayer.com/plan.cfm

May God richly bless you today and let me leave you with this most beautiful passage of Scripture from the Book of Philippians, “Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death, even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:6-11)

What Jesus You Believe In Does Matter!

Leave a comment

(2 Corinthians 6:14)

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

What Jesus you believe in does MATTER!!! The music icon Prince died Thursday. Like all men, the moment he took his last breath he was before God His Creator. His belief in the lies of the Jehovah Witness cult were well publicized. I listened all day as those in the media talked about his “faith,” his “spirituality.” They spoke of how he was in heaven.

As world renown as Prince was because of his extraordinary musical gifts, the sad reality is that Prince is forever in hell. Like each person who dies, the only thing God cared about was if Prince knew Jesus as his personal Savior, and yes, IT DOES MATTER WHAT JESUS YOU PUT YOUR FAITH IN!!!

Some people may feel this is a very cold Devotional. Quite the opposite. It is because we have a generation of gutless pastors that I MUST share this message with you today. What I am sharing with you today is the most important issue in life, and one that needs to be discussed since death is a very real part of our life, and something each person reading these words today will experience in the future.

The Bible clearly tells us that tomorrow is promised to none of us. The fact is, the moment we take our last breath we will stand before God. At that instant, there is only one thing that will matter and that is whether you have accepted Jesus Christ into your heart and life by faith. At that moment, those who have accepted Him will be forever with God their Creator, those who have rejected Him will be forever separated from God their Creator.

It is impossible for us with our finite minds to even begin to comprehend the glory of Heaven, being with God our Creator for eternity. Likewise, it is impossible for us to even begin to imagine the horrors of Hell, being separated from God our Creator for eternity.

HELL IS NOT A BAD VACATION, IT IS ETERNAL SEPARATION FROM GOD YOUR CREATOR AND THERE ARE NO WORDS THAT COULD EVER DESCRIBE THAT HORROR!!!

The Bible, which is our final authority in ALL matters is very clear on death. It is final. There is no such thing as reincarnation, we are not coming back as a petunia. We don’t die and go to some special place where people can pray us into Heaven over time. The moment we die our body is no longer of any use and our soul lives on for eternity, either forever with God, or forever separated from Him. That eternal destination is determined by only ONE THING, our relationship with Jesus Christ.

Being a member of a certain church CANNOT save you. Being baptized as a baby CANNOT save you. The faith of your parents CANNOT save you. Good works CANNOT save you. A pastor or priest simply praying over you while you are dying CANNOT save you. The ONLY THING that can save you is putting your faith in Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. It is a choice, a conscious choice, that YOU and YOU ALONE have to make BEFORE you die.

Sadly, based on his own words, Prince had rejected faith in the Jesus Christ and bought into the lies of the Jehovah Witness cult that denies the deity of Christ. If Jesus is not God than we are all lost in our sins since it is a key tenant of the Christian faith! The Mormon cult also denies the deity of Christ along with a plethora of other anti-Biblical beliefs. However, denying the deity of Christ alone makes them a cult and those who put their faith in their lies makes them as lost as an atheist!

The Bible tells us that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” You see my friend, it is our SIN that separates us from a Holy and Righteous God, and why only faith in Jesus Christ, who paid for our sins can allow us to be reconciled to God. Prince did many good works throughout his life. However, the Bible tells us in Ephesians 2:8,9 that good works will not save you.

I have no doubt that somewhere in the world, within a few minutes of the passing of Prince a man who had accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior also died. This man was not known by the world, he did not have great wealth, but death is the great equalizer. If Prince died without the Christ of the Bible, this man that was known and loved by the world, this man who had all the wealth this world could offer, was instantly cast into eternal darkness.

At the same time, the man who DID know Jesus as her Savior by faith, who had no fame or fortune in this life, was instantly ushered into the presence of Almighty God for eternity. “What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, but lose his soul?” (Luke 16:19-31)

I love you and care about you so much. Being a famous person in this life does NOT guarantee you anything when this brief journey is over. Each person is responsible for their own eternal destination by their choice in regard to Jesus Christ. IT MATTERS WHAT JESUS YOU PUT YOUR FAITH IN! You see, it was the Jesus of the Bible that died on a cross 2,000 years ago for your sins and mine. That is why ONLY faith in the Jesus of the Bible can save you.

If right now, this very moment, you do not have the assurance that when your life is over, you will be forever with God, the Bible says that TODAY is the day of salvation. You never have to doubt or wonder again, Bow your head right now, ask God to open your heart, and read the words at this following link: http://www.liveprayer.com/plan.cfm I will be praying for you as you make the most important decision that you will make in this life, where you will spend eternity.

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

This Message Applies to Every Single Person Who is Reading this Right Now

Leave a comment

(Matthew 11:28-30; 1 Peter 5:7)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help me to be a blessing to someone I meet today. Help me to not be so self-absorbed that I miss the opportunity to be a good witness for you. Today, I yield myself to you. Use me for your glory! In the name of Jesus…AMEN!!!

This message applies to every single person who is reading this right now. It doesn’t matter how old you are, whether you are a man or a woman, what your skin color is, what nationality you are, how much money you have or don’t have, this is a universal message that is applicable to everyone. You see, nobody that has lived very long in this sin-filled and evil world has escaped the trials and tribulations of this life and not experienced some sort of pain. EVERYONE reading this Devotional knows the pain that comes from time to time during this journey we are on.

For some, that pain was experienced in your childhood through mental, physical, or sexual abuse. Some have experienced that pain later in life through failed relationships, many through being divorced. Everyone has lived through the pain of the death of a loved one. Many of you have experienced the pain of financial hardships. Others have lived through the pain of losing your job or other employment and career issues. Sadly, some have lived through the experience of being a crime victim. Everyone has experienced the pain from making poor choices at some point in their life. Most have had to experience the pain of some bondage such as alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex, food, money, shopping, lying, or a myriad of other bondages that people get caught up in.

NOT ONE PERSON READING THIS HAS NOT HAD TO LIVE THROUGH THE PAIN THAT COMES FROM LIVING THIS LIFE HERE ON EARTH.

Today, I want to share a word with you that could be one of the most important things anyone has ever told you. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO KEEP LIVING WITH WHATEVER PAIN YOU HAVE FROM YOUR PAST. Let me repeat that, because I really want you to hear these words clear. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO KEEP LIVING WITH WHATEVER PAIN YOU HAVE FROM YOUR PAST. If you are, that is only because you have CHOSEN to live with that pain!

The fact is, God has made a way through faith in His Son for you to put the pain of your past behind you and live your life in freedom. Jesus has told us to give Him our burdens, that He would carry them for us. The Bible tells us to cast our cares on Him, because He cares for us. You see, God doesn’t expect you to carry the pain of your past with you each day. He wants you live FREE from your past so that you can enjoy the abundance that this life has to offer.

Just hours before going to the cross, Jesus told His disciples that in this world, they would experience trials and tribulations. But He told them to “be of good cheer” because HE has overcome this world. You see my friend, trials and tribulation are part of this human experience, but God has made a way through His Son for us to still enjoy the abundance that this life can offer despite those trials and tribulations.

The only reason you are carrying the pain of your past with you today is because you have chosen to believe the LIE instead of the TRUTH. Jesus tells us in John 8:44 that satan is a liar. He is the “father of lies.” When he speaks, he speaks his native language, lying! God on the other hand is TRUTH. The Word of God is TRUTH. The lie of satan is that you have to carry the pain of your past around with you each day like a 1,000 pound anchor around your neck. The truth from God is that you can take that pain of your past and give it to Jesus. HE WILL GLADLY TAKE THAT 1,000 POUND ANCHOR FROM YOU TODAY!!!

I love you and care about you so much. Everyone reading this Devotional today has experienced some of the pain that this life offers. So many of you have never let go of that pain and have simply learned how to live your life each day with that pain. Because of that, you are missing the fullness of the joy, peace, and abundance that this life can offer. Because of that, you are not completely fulfilling your purpose in this life which is to serve and glorify God with your life. Because of that, you are not living in total freedom and victory each day.

Right now, this very moment, I want you to stop whatever you are doing. If you are at home, at work, at school, it doesn’t matter. Stop whatever you are doing right now and pray this prayer.

“Dear Father, I thank you for this day. I know that today was not promised to me, but it is a gift from You. Dear God, You know the pain I have today from what has happened in my life. I am tired of carrying this pain with me day after day. It is robbing me of my joy, of my peace, of knowing the abundance that this life can offer. I trust Your Word today that tells me that I can give this burden to You, that You will take it from me. I trust Your Word today that tells me to cast my cares on You, because You care for me. In the name of Jesus, I give You the pain of my past today. In the name of Jesus, I surrender it to You. Take it from me, and fill me right now with Your joy, with Your peace, and let me live from this day forward in FREEDOM FROM MY PAST! In Jesus name I pray, AMEN!”

I will be praying for you today my friend. God loves you SO MUCH! He cares about you SO MUCH! We live in an evil and sin-filled world. Because of that, we all will experience pain in this life, but God has made a way so that we do not have to carry that pain around with us for the rest of our days. He has offered to carry it for us, to take it from us. I pray today that you will trust Him and give Him the pain of your past and live in FREEDOM from this day forward!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

Does “rehab” really work? Like never before, rehab is in the news. Rehab, is a critical and serious place for many to find hope, help, and deliverance from the bondages people become enslaved to during this life. Lately, it has been turned into a joke by Hollywood stars who use rehab as a place to hide when their addictions and poor choices catch up to them and are exposed to the world. A few weeks later they emerge, claiming they are “cured” when nothing has really changed. So this does raise the legitimate question, does going to rehab really cure people of their addictions, does rehab really work?

It is important to understand, there is no magical place to go to be delivered from an addiction. That place doesn’t exist. Please listen to me. Nobody will ever be delivered from whatever they are in bondage to until they want to be delivered. I have to say this again since this goes to the very heart of the issues today. NOBODY WILL EVER BE DELIVERED FROM WHATEVER THEY ARE IN BONDAGE TO UNTIL THEY WANT TO BE DELIVERED!

Here is another very important truth for you today. Even God won’t deliver you unless you want to be delivered and set free. Why? Free will. God gave you the free will to make your own choices. You are the one who chooses to take drugs, drink, smoke, overeat, engage in sinful sexual activities, shop for things you don’t need, gamble, and anything else that you become enslaved to. When YOU are ready to stop, to be set free, God will be there to strengthen you and help you find the deliverance you seek. But YOU have to first make the choice to stop and seek the Lord’s help. Until you come to that place, NOTHING will change.

Please don’t underestimate the “God factor” in people being set free from their addictions. IT IS THE KEY once a person decides to seek freedom from their bondage. That is why Christ-centered rehab programs have a dramatically lower recidivism rate than secular rehab programs. Once you take your stand and are determined to be free from your addiction, you need a power greater than yourself to be able to walk in victory day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year.

The cliché? “one day at a time” is real. For the person who has fought and won the battle over their addiction, they are acutely aware that the battle never stops. The reason people “relapse” or “fall off the wagon” is because they quit doing the things they need to on a daily basis to walk in victory. For someone who has been delivered from an addiction, they MUST do the things they need on a daily basis to live in victory, or they will wake up one morning back in the jaws of their addiction.

The good thing all rehab programs do is help educate a person about their addiction. It helps them to understand the psychological and physiological factors involved. It also gives a person the practical tools to live “clean.” The greatest of those tools is accountability. None of us can walk through this journey of life alone. We all need others in our life to guide us, strengthen us, and encourage us along the way. That is especially true for someone who is battling to live in freedom from some addiction. Having someone in your life to hold you accountable who has fought the battle and is living in victory over their addiction, is critical to helping you live in that same victory.

I love you and care about you so much. The reality is no place or program will ever work until you are ready to live in freedom from whatever your bondage may be. The same free will you use to make the choice to drink, do drugs, gamble, smoke, overeat, shop for things you don’t need, engage in sinful sexual activities, or whatever your bondage may be, is the same free will you have to exercise to make the choice to live in freedom from that bondage.

When you make that choice to be free, rehab and programs like AA can be very effective in helping educate you and giving you the basic tools you need to live your life in freedom. The critical element at that point in finding your life again is a relationship with Jesus Christ. Without Christ you can be delivered from your bondage and live in freedom . However, like all who live without Christ you can never know the true joy, peace, and abundance of this life, and when this brief journey is over you will be forever separated from God your Creator in hell. *There is no rehab or programs to escape from hell once you die and are there!

By surrendering your heart and life to Christ by faith, you will not only find freedom from your addiction, but you will find the strength to live a victorious life each day. This life is not about just living until we die, but living in victory and making our lives count. Without Christ, that is impossible, with Christ, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

I will be praying for you today. If you are currently battling with an addiction, I pray that you will open your heart today and hear God’s voice speaking to you through these words He is telling you that you don’t have to be a slave to your addiction any longer. You can be free. Freedom from your addiction is only a prayer away! The fact is your life is a mess right now, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. God will help you, but YOU have to be ready to live in freedom from your bondage. Ask God to open your heart to His love and Truth and watch this video clip: http://www.liveprayer.com/altarcall.cfm

I will also be praying today for all those who are in rehab or some program today, trying to be free from whatever has enslaved them. I pray that they will open their hearts to the Lord who loves them and wants them to not only be free from their addiction, but know the true joy, and peace, and abundance this life can offer through a relationship with Him. No place or program will ever work until the person is ready to quit, and no victory will ever be complete without Christ!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

A Genocidal Tool of Satan May be on the $20 Bill!

Leave a comment

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

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Lord, even though we have no right to ask, please continue to watch over this nation. Thank you for showing us the clear signs of destruction our sin and rebellion have heaped upon our land. I pray today that as a nation we will turn back to you and your Truth. Give me strength as days of persecution are upon us, and let me stand proud and strong for you and your Kingdom. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ANYONE WHO TELLS YOU THAT THE MONEY YOU PAY FOR OBAMACARE IS NOT GOING TO BE USED TO KILL BABIES IS LYING TO YOU JUST LIKE THE PRESIDENT LOOKED YOU IN THE EYE AND LIED TO YOU OVER AND OVER AND OVER THAT YOU COULD KEEP YOUR DOCTOR, KEEP YOUR PLAN, AND YOUR PREMIUMS WOULD GO DOWN FOR ABOUT $2500 A YEAR FOR MOST FAMILIES!

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

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

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

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

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

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

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller
