The Soul of Our Nation Hangs in the Balance

Leave a comment

(Amos 3:2-3)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bill Keller

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

Leave a comment

(Luke 4:18)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

To Be Like Paul

Leave a comment

(Romans 13:7)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Lord, use my life for your glory. As I go throughout my day, let me never miss those opportunities to glorify YOU through my life. Even if it is a kind word, a helping hand, going ojut of my way to do something nice for someone I don’t even know. Let the words of my mouth, AND MY ACTIONS, share your love and hope with all I come in contact with. In Jesus name..AMEN!

One of the men I admire the most in God’s Word and try to follow is Paul. Paul was a leader in every sense of the word. A leader is a person with vision, the guts to stand up and declare that vision, the ability to inspire others to follow, the fortitude to persevere despite whatever opposition there may be, and the patience to see that vision become a reality. I want to use Paul’s life to challenge you in your personal walk to make the most of each day God gives you.

As I have shared with you often, our journey through this life is so brief and over so quickly. James calls it a “vapor.” The Bible clearly teaches that tomorrow is promised to none of us. That is why we must make the most of each and every day. There are no do-overs. When this journey is over, it is over, we are not coming back. This is our one and only shot. Understanding that, it should become the desire of each of us to make each day count and live it to the fullest.

Very few people in their life will have the opportunity to become the President of the United States or the leader of a nation. However, EVERY PERSON has the ability to make a difference in this world no matter what you have been called to do. I don’t care if you are 15 or 115, rich or poor, male or female, what color your skin is, YOU can make an impact on this world with your life and be a leader.

God gives each of us passions, things that we develop a love for throughout our life. God gives each of us gifts, special abilities that come naturally to us. Throughout our life God opens and closes doors. It is through these passions we have, through the gifts we have received and developed, and through the opportunities that life presents us, that each person can make an impact on this world during the course of their life.

You see, God needs His children in every area of life. He calls His children to be teachers, doctors, scientists, astronauts, pilots, police officers, fire fighters, secretaries, bank tellers, garbage collectors, janitors, nurses, homemaker, car dealers, mechanics, farmers, politicians, entertainers, lawyers, writers, stock brokers, and any other profession you can name. Throughout the course of a person’s life, God may call someone to do many different things. The point is, whatever career or profession you are in, you can make a difference. The key is to do your very best each day and realize that your life matters.

Those who know Christ as their Savior have been called to lead. The most common way we lead is by example, how we live our lives each day before this lost world we are part of for this brief time.

Of course, no matter how much we may accomplish in our life, our greatest legacy will be those lives we touch for Christ along our journey. You see my friend, no matter what your passions may be, what your gifts may be, what career or occupation you have, we all have the same purpose in this life. That is to serve and glorify God with our lives. All that we do in this life comes back to our God-given purpose which is to serve and glorify Him. The money we accumulate, the property we own, all of the things of this world will one day pass away, but those lives we impact for Christ will last for eternity!

I love you and care about you so much. Paul had a full life and used his life to make a difference in this world for Christ. Paul was a real leader of men. The example from his life I want to challenge you with today is that YOU can make a difference in this world too, regardless of the career or occupation you are in. The key is to wake up each morning, do the very best you can, and as God opens doors in your life be bold enough to walk through them. In these last days God needs men and women with the courage and spiritual guts to lead!

Never forget that no matter where God may have you working during each season of your life, He has placed you there as His ambassador. You are not there by accident, but God has placed you where you are in life to share with others you meet along your journey the hope and love of Jesus Christ and the Truth of His Word. That will be your real legacy when this brief journey is over, those lives you impact for Christ.

The reality of this life is that one day, sooner than any of us expect, it will be over. At that moment we will be instantly in the presence of God our Creator (2 Cor 5:8). At that moment, God is not going to be interested in the name of the church you attended, what your job was in this life, how much money you have, or how many buildings have your name on them. No my friend, the only thing God is going to be interested in is do you have a personal relationship with His Son Jesus Christ. For those who do, God will say, “enter into my rest.” AMEN!

My word to you today is this. Go out and make an impact in this world in whatever God has called you to do with your life. Make your life matter! Be a leader! Never forget that you have been called to serve and glorify Christ with your life and your lasting legacy will be those lives you touch and lead to Jesus along your journey!

I am doing my best each day to lead the lost and hurting in this world to Christ, but I can’t do it without you. One way you can make an impact in the eternal souls of people is with your prayers and gifts to Liveprayer. You will live on long after you have gone home to be with the Lord in the lives you touched along your journey through those prayers and gifts.

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

Bill Keller

The Trap the Enemy Uses is Getting People Focused on Work They Neglect Other Aspects of Life

Leave a comment

(1 Timothy 5:8)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help me to be a good father, mother, son, and/or daughter today. It is no accident who our family members are, and you have given me these special people to bless my life, and for me to bless their life. Lord, today I pray for those members of my family who have not made a decision to come to you by faith, and I pray for their salvation. Help me, others you place in their life, to open their heart to your life and make that decision to accept you by faith. Thank you for my family and I ask your blessings on each one of us today. In Jesus name..AMEN!

For men and women that God has given a great amount of energy and ability to, one of the biggest traps the enemy uses is getting them so focused on daily work, that they neglect other aspects of their life. It is common to minimize and not give enough time to that daily, intimate contact with the Lord that is so critical to anyone who professes Christ as their Savior.

The other area that suffers is the responsibility to the home. As one who fights this battle daily, I can personally attest to how easy it is to get caught up in our job, our career. It is something that can happen in a very subtle way over a period of time and without any bad intentions or motives. It is a very clever trap of the enemy that I want to expose today and share with you how to avoid at all costs.

The passage of scripture today very clearly lays out how God feels about those who neglect their home. If you notice, there are no exceptions. It doesn’t say you are exempt from being an infidel if you are in the ministry. Or you are exempt from being an infidel if you have an important job. Or you are exempt from being an infidel if many people at work depend on you. men, God was clear and concise that taking care of our home is a major priority in our life…without exception.

I am totally convinced in my own heart, that the reason our society is in such a bad state today, is because we are now reaping what we sowed, as far as the family is concerned, since the mid-60’s. From the free-love, anti-authority days of the 60’s and 70’s, to the “me-first” 80’s, to the self-indulgence of the 90’s….we now have a generation that grew up without the love and nurturing of two parents. Whether it be from divorce or parents driven to succeed at any cost, our society now is dealing with the problems of the breakdown of God’s family plan. God tries to tell us in His word, that after our personal relationship with Him, the next priority in our life MUST be our home. There is nothing more important we do each day than operate as the spiritual head of our house.

IT IS OUR FIRST JOB, AND TAKES PRIORITY OVER ALL OTHER EARTHLY JOBS AND PURSUITS.

How do we avoid falling into this trap? The best way I know is a two-fold approach. I HAVE to start each day in prayer and the Word, or it doesn’t happen. It has become a discipline of mine over the years. That helps me to zero in on what is really important, and throughout the day gives me the type of God-centered focus I need to keep me where the Lord wants me to be. Having started out that way each day, I then am reminded of my duty as the spiritual head of my home.

To properly operate in that role requires sacrifice and planning on my part. I am very busy. I put in long days. But it is a priority each day to fulfill my role and obligation as the spiritual head of my house, so I plan into my day the things necessary to make that happen. It boils down to time management, planning, and prioritizing. It is funny how we can always find the time to do the things we really want to do, the things that please us. That simply proves that it really boils down to our priorities. If we follow God’s Word and our home is a top priority, than we will find the time to provide the spiritual leadership in our home God has called us to provide, regardless what else we do in our daily life.

I know that this is difficult for many to read. For many, you are saying that it sounds good, but it is not realistic in your case. Let me reiterate. It MUST be realistic because it is what God has instructed us to do. Of course, I have not even addressed the issue of single parent homes in all of this, but that doesn’t change God’s command. There are NO exceptions. One thing I have found in my personal journey with the Lord, when we are trying to follow His word, attempting to live in obedience to His commands, He will help us.

I love you and care for you, and am praying that He opens your eyes and heart to fulfill your responsibility to your home each day. Again, there may be sacrifice involved and it may not be easy, but God will strengthen you, give you wisdom, and part the seas to help you follow Him. I pray that you will read these words today, sit down and pray. Ask God how you can fulfill what He has asked you to do in relationship to your responsibilities at home. In some cases, you may have to totally readjust your lifestyle. Again, God will help you. There are several passages of scripture that are very strong and very clear. 1 Timothy 5:8 is one of those passages.

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

Could Adolph Hitler be in Heaven

Leave a comment

(John 3:1; Ephesians 2:8,9; Romans 10:9,10)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, today I come to you to re-dedicate my life to you. I have failed to surrender my life completely to your will and way for my life, but today I give my life to you…fully, wholly, unconditionally surrendered to you. Use the days I have left for your glory. Make my life count for eternity. Let me be a vessel to bring the lost to faith in Jesus Christ and further your Kingdom. In Jesus name I pray…AMEN!

Could Adolph Hitler be in Heaven? This is a question I get asked often and really puts to the test the words of Jesus, “That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” The answer is YES, Adolph Hitler could be in Heaven. If it is impossible for Hitler to be in Heaven, then it is impossible for you and I to be in Heaven. You see my friend, Jesus died for the sins of ALL mankind. He died for the sins of Adolph Hitler just like He died for the sins of you and me.

If you ask me to speculate on whether Hitler IS in Heaven, I would say almost without hesitation that he is not. Adolph Hitler did not worship Jesus Christ, he worshiped himself. If in those last moments prior to his death he got on his knees and asked Christ to forgive him of his sins and invited Him into his heart by faith, then like the thief on the cross he most assuredly would be in Heaven for all eternity. However, it is clear that this man who could be blamed for the death of the over 40 million people who died during World War II had no faith in anything but himself and power and his heart remained hardened right up to his last breath.

Some people have a very difficult time with the fact an evil man like Hitler could be in Heaven. Every family has an Uncle Joe or Aunt Judy who are “good people.” They don’t go to church, they don’t read the Bible, and they really don’t want to hear that “Jesus stuff.” However, they don’t drink, smoke, or do drugs, they pay their taxes, they don’t kick their dog, and they give money every year to Jerry’s kids. They also help their neighbor or whoever is in need, don’t hurt anybody, and are the kindest, sweetest people you will ever meet. Yet the Bible says that if they die without accepting Christ, they will spend eternity in hell!

A monster like Adolph Hitler could have repented and asked Christ into his heart and be saved, however, Uncle Joe or Aunt Judy who live good lives helping others but don’t believe in Jesus and they are cast into everlasting darkness. It doesn’t seem right. You see my friend, it is your SIN that separates you from God your Creator. God in His infinite love and mercy made a way for His fallen creation to be reconciled back into an everlasting relationship with Him. God’s plan to redeem fallen man was to send His Son Jesus Christ to this earth to die as the perfect one-time sacrifice for the sins of the world. That is why it is ONLY faith in Jesus that can save you, since it was ONLY Jesus who died for your sins.

There is no other way for man to be reconciled back to God but through faith in Jesus Christ. You can’t buy your way back to God. There is no amount of good works you can ever do to get back to God. The ONLY way back to God is by putting your faith and trust in Jesus Christ. That is why Uncle Joe or Aunt Judy can live “good” lives but be lost for eternity. It is their sin that keeps them eternally separated from God. That is why a person who commits horrible acts can still know God’s free gift of everlasting life. It is their faith in Jesus Christ that washes away his sins to allow them to be eternally with God.

I love you and care about you so much. I want you to hear what I am about to say to you loud and clear. There is nothing that you have ever done that God can’t forgive you for. One of the things I hear often in dealing with the lost is that they have sinned so bad, God could never forgive them. My dear friend, listen to me closely. There is NO SIN, NOTHING, you have ever done that God can’t forgive you for. If you will humble yourself before the Lord, ask Him to forgive you, HE WILL in accordance with the promises in His Word.

One of those great promises is found in 1 John 1:9 where the Bible says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” God’s grace and forgiveness is infinite. His mercy is endless. No matter what you have done, if you will simply go to the Lord right now, ask Him to forgive you, HE WILL!

Could Adolph Hitler be in Heaven? If he would have confessed his sins to God, asked God to forgive him, and invited Jesus Christ into his heart and life by faith, YES! Can YOU be saved? If you confess your sins to God, ask God to forgive you, and invite Jesus Christ into your heart and life by faith, YES! If you have never done that before, or you don’t have the assurance that if you died you would be forever with the Lord, take a moment right now, pray and ask God to open your heart and read the words at this link: http://www.liveprayer.com/plan.cfm

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

Love

Leave a comment

(1 John 4:8)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Lord, thank you for your unconditional love for me. I ask you today to give me the ability to love others in that same way, to love people the way You do. Let Your love flow through my life to those I come in contact with to help them understand the love of Jesus. I ask this today in the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…AMEN!

Today is the day the world celebrates that powerful force known as love. The world focuses on the romantic aspect of this emotion, but I want to focus on the true meaning of the word from God’s perspective. You see God’s love, Biblical love, has an aspect that the world tries to copy but fails. That aspect of God’s love, the love spoken of in the Bible, is that it is UNCONDITIONAL.

I can tell you right now, that in our frail human condition, it is impossible to love anyone unconditionally. However, when you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, when you have the strength that God imparts to you, to love someone unconditionally is not only possible, but required of His children.

One of the common threads that you will find in my Devotionals is that when you live your life according to God’s plan, things will work out. However, when you rebel, ignore God’s warnings, do it your way instead of God’s way, it never works long-term and you end up dealing with heartache and pain that could have been avoided.

For those like me who are hardheaded and stubborn, we have to find this out the hard way and endure some of the worst things life has to offer before we finally realize that if we would just submit our will to His, and do it His way, we could avoid many unpleasant experiences and the serious consequences of our rebellion.

Love, God’s kind of love is no different. God has a specific plan. In a romantic sense-between a man and woman-it is intended for us to have one partner during this lifetime. While I realize that for many it is not the case, that doesn’t alter or change what God’s plan is. For those who have gone through the pain of divorce, broken relationships, you understand very well why God’s plan is the best way. I want to encourage those young adults today to not hurry into romantic relationships so early in life.

I cannot begin to tell you the mail I get daily from young adults 13, 14, 15, 16 who are writing because of problems with boyfriends and girlfriends. In all honesty, they have no business being romantically involved at that age. The biggest problem that I have seen in many years of ministry, dealing with literally tens of thousands of young adults “in love,” is that the revolving door of relationships that starts FAR too young, gives people a mindset that when things don’t work out the way you like, just move on. Sadly, that mindset is carried into marriage, and when things get difficult, it becomes much easier to just walk away and get a divorce as opposed to honoring the vows you made to your spouse, and to God.

God’s plan is for one man, one woman, for one lifetime. Again, those who have been through multiple relationships in their lives understand why that plan works so well. Patience, faith, and trusting God is the key element in establishing that God-ordained union in your life. It then puts you in a position, with the power of God living in you, to love that person the way you should, unconditionally.

Outside the romantic arena, unconditional love is the way God expects us to love others. How can you love someone unconditionally that you don’t even know? Think about the unconditional love God showed when He gave His only Son on a cross 2000 years ago for the sins of this world. For the sins of everyone, including those who mocked and cursed Him. That is the true test of unconditional love.

Loving someone who loves you is easy. Can you love, unconditionally love, someone who has been mean to you, done bad things to you, caused you pain and heartache? God did. How do you think God feels about those who defy Him, sin against Him, work against Him, hate Him? These are the people that He gave His Son for. DESPITE ALL THEY DO, GOD STILL LOVES
THEM-UNCONDITIONALLY!!!

I love you and care about you so much. I pray, today, that you will think of someone this Valentine’s Day who you have had problems with in your life. I want you to get on your knees tonight before you go to bed and pray for that person. Pray for them, and ask God to give you unconditional love for that person. The Bible tells us, “Love our enemies.” Again, that is God’s kind of love, unconditional love.

You will not even begin to know the feeling of joy and peace as you pray for that person who hurt you. The blessings you will know as you love that person unconditionally. God loved you unconditionally even though you were a sinner. How can we do any less? Make today a special day as you pray for that person in your life who has harmed you in some way, and in the strength that God gives you, love that person-UNCONDITIONALLY.

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

A Media Looking to Blame Christians

Leave a comment

(John 15:18)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, please help me to live this day honoring you in my thoughts, words, and deeds. Help me this day to live my life pleasing and acceptable to Jesus. Allow me to use my life to help someone else during this day, and be kind to everyone I come across no matter how they may treat me. Let Christ shine through me throughout this day oh Lord, be glorified through my life! In Jesus name I pray…AMEN!

“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.” John 15:18

A media looking to blame Christians! After the Liveprayer TV program ends at 2am EDT, I usually unwind and am asleep by 4am. Most days I am back up and in the office by 8:30am, but Wednesday was awakened before 8am by several calls from different media outlets wanting to know how I felt “having incited a Christian to kill innocent Muslims?” Of course I had no clue what they were talking about, and was told of the 3 Muslims students in North Carolina who had been killed by a “white Christian man.”

I told the caller I would get up, get the FACTS of what happened, and call them back. I added that without any other knowledge, if indeed the killer was a Christian, he was acting in complete CONTRADICTION to what the Bible teaches and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. However, when Muslims kill innocents people around the world every day, they are acting in complete ACCORDANCE with the teachings of their false religion and its 1400 year history.

As the morning progressed, it turned out the killer of the three Muslim students, shot them after a confrontation over a parking space in the apartment complex they all lived in. Apparently, this dispute over the parking space had been going on for over a year. It also turned out that the killer despised Christians and most assuredly people like myself, stating on his social media page, “praying is pointless, useless, narcissistic, arrogant, and lazy; just like the imaginary god you pray to.”

The killer also stated he was an atheist and described himself as a fan of atheist author Richard Dawkins. His Facebook “likes” included the Huffington Post, Rachel Maddow, the Southern Poverty Law Center, Freedom from Religion Foundation, Bill Nye “The Science Guy,” Neil deGrasse Tyson, Gay Marriage groups, and other progressive groups. If there was any influence in this sick person’s thinking it was from those he “liked” who all HATE Christians, oppose God on every spiritual issue, and promote complete rebellion to living in accordance with what the Bible teaches!!!

As a note, even though it is cut and dry what led to this horrific incident, CAIR and other Islamic groups are still trying to portray this as some sort of “hate crime” motivated by hatred of Muslims. They look for every opportunity to gain sympathy for the Islamic cause in order to further their agenda in this nation. As we have for the past few days, please pray for the families of these slain young adults. Saddest of all is that they are now dead, and lost for eternity for rejecting faith in Christ. Helping those lost in the cults and false religions of the world understand that Christ is their only hope and answer is something all followers of Christ can do in their day to day interactions with people God has placed in your life to share the Gospel with.

Speaking of the Southern Poverty Law Center. Over 3 years ago, myself and Liveprayer were deemed by them to be a dangerous organization of hate and domestic terror! The far-left leaning Southern Poverty Law Center out of Montgomery, Alabama listed myself and this ministry as an organization that is involved in acts of “general hate.” While you may not have heard of SPLC, they are the leading group in the nation that tracks individuals and groups they claim are involved in hatred, bigotry, intolerance, and acts of domestic terror.

Their website claims, “The Southern Poverty Law Center is dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry, and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of our society. Using litigation, education and other forms of advocacy, we work toward the day when the ideals of equal justice and equal opportunity will be a reality. We employ a three-pronged strategy to battle racial and social injustice: 1) We track the activities of hate groups and domestic terrorists across America, and we launch innovative lawsuits that seek to destroy networks of radical extremists. 2) We use the courts and other forms of advocacy to win systemic reforms on behalf of victims of bigotry and discrimination. 3) We provide educators with free resources that teach school children to reject hate, embrace diversity and respect differences.”

On their site they have a “hate map” where they have identified radical extremists and highly dangerous groups in each state. Check out the link below for their list of groups in Florida, and along with new-Nazis, white nationalists, racist skinheads, Black separatists, and the KKK, is…Bill Keller and Liveprayer!!!
SPLC Hate Map: http://www.splcenter.org/get-informed/hate-map s=FL

*Note: Out of the 22 Islamic “camps” throughout the nation, NOT ONE is on the SPLC “hate map!”

Now some people may not think this is a big deal, but you couldn’t be more wrong. This organization has deep connections with law enforcement and the Department of Justice. It is called on regularly to testify before Congress, and any time there is some sort of hate-crime, act of domestic terror, top officials are all over the news channels. Just yesterday one of their leaders was on CNN and MSNBC regarding the killing of the 3 Muslim students in North Carolina. The SPLC is very well financed from liberal foundations and donors who fight for special rights for homosexuals, baby-killers, Muslims, and illegal immigrants.

After meetings with our attorneys, we made the decision to send a demand letter to the Southern Poverty Law Center to immediately remove Liveprayer from their hate map and issue a formal apology. They have refused to respond so we plan to file a $100 million defamation suit against them. Listen, we have no illusions we will ever see a dime. However, someone needs to stand up to these bully’s since THEY are the ones fueling acts of violence against Christians who are simply preaching the Truth of the Bible and taking a Biblical stand on the issues of the day.

I remember 16 years ago at the very beginning of Liveprayer, I shared in a Devotional how one day on the Internet you will be able to access unlimited amounts of porn and any other kind of evil you could name, but Liveprayer will be banned. What used to be considered Biblical preaching 40 years ago on subjects like the sin of homosexuality, abortion, false religions like Islam, and cults like Mormonism, is now labeled as “hate speech.” DO YOU BELIEVE ME NOW???

This is simply the culmination of what I have been sharing with you for 16 years now. This is why I take such an aggressive stand on gutless preachers like Osteen, compromisers using the watered down man-made seeker/purpose driven/emerging church/prosperity Gospel marketing plans, not to mention those churches who embrace sins like racism, homosexuality, abortion, and any number of gross sins you can name. Because we have sanitized the Truth of the Bible, compromised God’s Truth so we didn’t “offend” anyone, a person naive enough to simply preaches from the Scripture is now considered not just a hate monger, a bigot, and intolerant, but DANGEROUS to society!

It is sad so few pastors really get out of the four walls of their church, and virtually no Christian leaders will go into the secular media. Not only don’t they want to deal with the persecution it brings, it doesn’t bring in any donations so why bother? Just like so many of the priests in the Old Testament God’s prophets railed against since their number one priority was money, the same charges Jesus made to the religious leaders of his day, nothing has changed. You would think with the tens of thousands of people we have helped get into local churches, many churches would support Liveprayer. Just the opposite. Churches view Liveprayer as “competition!” How sad is that?

This is not new. Paul and many of those in the early church were imprisoned, beaten, even killed for simply preaching the Gospel. While the “crime” the Jewish leaders wanted Jesus dead was equating Himself with God, the real “crime” Jesus committed was exposing their hypocrisy and hurting their “business.” The world is not concerned about those who go into their church on Sunday, sing a few hymns, say a prayer, and keep their mouths shut once they leave the church.

No, satan’s greatest fear and the fear of those who promote his agenda is someone foolish enough to go on SECULAR TV, SECULAR RADIO, SECULAR PRINT PUBLICATIONS, using the Internet to reach non-Christians, by boldly preaching the uncompromised Truth of the Bible not for fame or financial reward, but to bring hope to the hurting and salvation to the lost!!!

I love you and care about you so much. In addition to the Southern Poverty Law Center, this ministry and I have been the target of CAIR and all of the most powerful Islamic organizations in many other countries, major advocacy groups for the sin of homosexuality, Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry, Glenn Beck and Mitt Romney who have both labeled me as a “religious bigot” for telling the truth about their satanic cult, arms of the Mormon cult out of Salt Lake City, the Scientologists, various atheist groups, the evil Barry Lynn and Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and other organizations who want to silence God’s Word in the public square.

Through all of the attacks against me personally, including an average of 4-5 death threats a month, the endless attacks on our technology designed to permanently silence me and destroy the website with the greatest amount of unique Biblically-based content that exists, I have never once backed down and refuse to be silenced. Even though Liveprayer has over 2.5 million subscribers to the Daily Devotional, we have had another 15 million people over the years unsubscribe because they simply couldn’t handle the raw Truth of the Bible. We have had at least 5,000 donors over the years stop donating because they didn’t like what God says on certain issues.

Unlike most others in the ministry, I refuse to water down or compromise God’s Truth in order to generate donations. I don’t have big buildings, a large staff, private jets, exotic luxury cars, or several mansions to buy and maintain. I have not done this for the last 20 years of my life for money, but to lead lost souls to faith in Jesus and this nation back to God and His Truth before He unleashes His full wrath and judgment on our wicked land!!!

I will continue to preach God’s Truth and the Gospel. At some point they may find a way to put me into prison, or shut down Liveprayer. The one thing I can assure you, as long as I have breath I will not stop boldly and without compromise preaching from God’s Holy Word. The eternal souls of men are at stake, and the soul of this nation is at stake. Even if they cut out my tongue, God will show me the way to insure His Truth reaches the lost and hurting looking for hope and everlasting life!

The one thing I can promise you, I WILL NEVER COMPROMISE! I will never be silenced. As long as Liveprayer exists, as long as I have breath, I will never back down from sharing the Truth of the Bible with the hurting and the Gospel with the lost no matter the personal cost since the only hope for this nation is to repent and turn back to God, and the only hope for each person is to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ by faith!

My hands are on the plow, my path is before me, my face is looking neither to the right or left but straight ahead, I will not waiver until Jesus returns or the Lord calls me home. AMEN!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller
