Special Mormon cult update and the cult of Freemasonry!!!

Leave a comment

(Matthew 7:21; Titus 1:16; 2 Timothy 3:5; Hosea 6:6; James 3:10)

***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!!!

***SPECIAL CULT INFORMATION!!! After literally battling satan 24/7 over these past 25 years, I am very familiar with the tactics of the “enemy of our soul.” Over the 19+ years of Liveprayer I have educated those in the Liveprayer family over and over about why a Mormon is no more Christian than a Muslim is. You do have to give Muslims credit for at least telling the truth that they are NOT Christians and want to kill anyone who refuses to follow the satanic lies of their false religion.

I have meticulously laid out in detail why Mormon doctrine is 100% inconsistent with Biblical Christianity. You can go to the Live! prayer.com
homepage and under RESOURCES, click on Daily Devotional. On the right side of the page is a SEARCH feature. Just type in MORMON and all of the Devotionals I have written about this cult will come up. One of the key traits of this cult is their use of lies (John 8:44) and deception, much like the founder of the Mormon cult Joseph Smith was a convicted con-artist prior to starting his cult less than 200 years ago.

Staying true to their roots of lies and deception, members of the Mormon cult lie without conscience when they call themselves “Christians.” With the better percentage of the last 2 generations having never been to church, they have now taking this lie to a new level as they are dropping the terms Mormon, Mormonism, and LDS in order to deceive theologically ignorant people into accepting their lie that they are “just another Christian church.” Members of the Mormon cult are being instructed to simply call themselves “The church of Jesus Christ. The world renown
Mormon Tabernacle Choir will now be known as, “The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square.”

JUST BECAUSE I MAY CHOOSE TO STAND ON A RUNWAY AND CALL MYSELF AN AIRPLANE, DOESN’T MAKE ME AN AIRPLANE ANY MORE THAN A MEMBER OF THE MORMON CULT CALLING THEMSELVES A CHRISTIAN MAKES THEM A CHRISTIAN!!!

Freemasonry IS a cult!!! Whenever I teach on this truth, I am inundated with outraged Masons that I would have the audacity to call their secret society what it is, a CULT! I am always prepared for the onslaught because I know it has been a very deep stronghold in many Christian churches! Joseph Smith, the founder of the Mormon cult was a Mason. He not only hijacked God’s Word to write his blasphemous Book of Mormon, but incorporated the secret rites of Freemasonry into his cult. All top leaders in the Mormon cult are Masons! That means Christian men involved in this cult are in a blood-oath relationship, an unholy alliance with men in the Mormon cult.

The fact ! is, the ONLY oath
we should ever take is to Jesus Christ. A top level Mason is called worshipful master, when Jesus Christ is the ONLY Master we are to worship. Lastly, Freemasonry operates in secret. Only evil operates in secrecy, in the darkness, while the things of God operate in the light. I am praying for those who have taken an oath to be part of this cult, this secret society, to leave immediately. As Jesus clearly stated, “You can’t serve two masters!”

The two people who God used to help shape my early faith in the Lord besides my parents were my father’s mom and dad. Grandpa and Grandma Keller were lifetime members of a little United Methodist Church outside of Columbus, Ohio. They never missed Sunday service; Grandpa was an usher, Grandma sang in the choir, and they were at the church for about every event that was held. As a young boy growing up, I spent two weeks every summer with them, and their church was a big part of my time there. Grandpa Keller was also a Mason! and Grandma
Keller was a member of the Eastern Star. It is hard to imagine that my dear, Godly grandparents were cult members, but that is exactly what they were.

Freemasonry and Christianity are incompatible. While most see it as a wonderful social, civic and philanthropic organization, in reality it is a secret religious society. Tracing its origins back to the stone masons who built Solomon’s Temple, the modern-day Masonic movement first appeared in Great Britain in 1717 and was first seen in the United States in Philadelphia in 1730. The terminology and symbolism of Masonry seems to come mostly from the actual craft of stonemasonry during the Middle Ages. The “free” in Masonry probably came from the “freestone” (stones that could be cut without splitting) with which Masons worked. Stonemasons had three classifications for workers practicing their craft: Apprentice, Fellow Craft, and Master Mason. This is also the terminology used for the first three degrees in Masonry
today.

Masonry is not based on the Bible (referred to as “The Great Light”), but on the Kabala, the ultimate source of Masonic beliefs (Morals and Dogma), which is a medieval book of mysticism and magic. Masons require one to believe in God to be a member, but the candidate is never required to say what god he believes in. Masons commonly refer to their deity as the “Great Architect of the Universe” (G.A.O.T.U.) or the Supreme Being.

The name of Christ is seldom referred to in Masonic literature, apparently due to the Masons not wanting to offend their non-Christian members. Freemasonry does not believe that Jesus Christ is God, nor that salvation is available only through Him. The reality of sin in the Biblical sense is denied. Masons think that any “shortcomings” can be overcome by greater enlightenment. Because they deny the reality of sin, Masons see no need for salvation in the Biblical sense. They see salvation as a step-by-step enlightenment wh! ich comes through
initiation into the Masonic degrees and their mysteries.

Most Masons join Freemasonry to be part of what they view as a prestigious, socially-influential organization. However, their society is based on misrepresentations and false explanations. The symbolic physical penalties advocated by the Freemasons are violent and murderous. No faithful Christian can keep Freemason oaths, which endorse the death penalty for oneself and requires members to persecute traitors to the organization. Oaths also obligate lodge members to protect lodge criminals and keep their secrets. The fact is, like in all cults, most involved in Freemasonry have NO CLUE what they really believe in or the satanic roots of Freemasonry. To this day, I firmly believe my Grandfather saw it as nothing more than a social organization, as did my Grandmother who was part of the Eastern Star, the women’s organization of Freemasonry.

When was the last time you heard your pastor preach against this cult! ? Let me
answer that, NEVER. A 1991 survey by the Southern Baptist Convention Sunday School Board found that 14% of SBC Pastors and 18% of SBC Deacon Board Chairs were Masons; it is also estimated that SBC members comprise 37% of total U.S. lodge membership. A 2000 updated SBC report found that over 1,000 SBC Pastors are Masons. As you get into the more liberal denominations, I am sure those percentages are even higher.

I love you and care about you so much. Satan is a master of deception and knows how to draw people into his traps of destruction. Nobody can ever deny the wonderful charitable causes the Masons (that includes the Shriners which are the highest degree of Masons) are involved in. But the Mafia also gives lots of money to charity. There is a local strip club that raises hundreds of thousands of dollars every year for a children’s hospital. Just because an organization does some “good works,” that does not make it an organization that you should be a member of! . Jesus Christ
gave us the organization to be part of that is to do good works, it is called THE CHURCH!

Know that I am praying for you today. I have no doubt that many who are reading this message today are in the Masons or the Eastern Star. I want you to pray, seriously today, about LEAVING those organizations. Freemasonry is NOT of God, but is opposed to God. I already know that this message today will cause some short term hardships to Liveprayer by those who will stop supporting this ministry because I have spoken out on this cult. Over the years it always has! But my job is to share the truth of God’s Word with you each day and shine the light on sin and expose deception. Man does not sustain this ministry each month, God does, and I do not have to answer to any man, but one day stand before God!

Jesus said, “You can’t serve two masters.” You cannot serve God and also be a Mason. You need to make a choice today which master you are going to serve, the cult of Free! masonry or
God.

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Did you thank God this morning for your health?

Proverbs 4:20-22)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, please help me today to be an active member of your body. I pray each day that I will be yielded to you and your will for my life. Let me remove all that is in my life keeping me from being the best servant I can possibly for you and your Kingdom. I love you Lord, and let my love be expressed in my daily life as I serve you. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!!!

As I drove to the office early this morning, for some reason I began thinking how good I felt physically, how full of strength and energy I felt, free of any aches and pains. My mind quickly started thinking first of all about those who do not have this wonderful blessing each day, all of those I hear from daily who are struggling, battling different infirmities in their bodies, dealing with pain all the time. I then began thinking about how fortunate I have been all of my life to enjoy wonderful health.

Despite the minor colds we! all get,
some various sports injuries, for the most part I have lived my life in wonderful health. What a gift I squandered for many years! I have spoken in the past about being in the best shape possible, watching what we eat and not putting harmful things into our bodies, all so we can enjoy optimum health to be able to serve our God. For so many years God blessed me with perfect health, and I used many of those years to “do my own thing,” not using this blessing for His glory.

As soon as I got into the office, I spent some time in prayer, thanking God for this wonderful blessing of good health, and He clearly spoke to me about this message you are reading. For those in good health, especially those young adults who have not had to deal with problems in this area of your life, DON’T SQUANDER THIS TIME!

God has given you a wonderful blessing to be able to live each day in good health, free from pain, to be able to concentrate on your service to Him. This is a gift not to! be taken
for granted! We have a responsibility not to abuse God’s blessings, and one blessing we often abuse is our good health. We live each day like we will always have good health. We live each day like it is our right to have good health. My friend, it is a BLESSING from God to have good health!

Over my 25 years of ministry, I have been in many hospital rooms. God originally created man not to die. Physical death became a byproduct of man’s sin in the Garden of Eden. Sickness and disease became part of man’s world. When you look at how complicated our physical bodies are, how intricate we are made, when you factor in the wear and tear of daily life, add to that how some people have abused their bodies with alcohol, drugs, and tobacco, it is actually amazing we last as long as we do. With all of the things that can go wrong, it is simply amazing we work as long as we do.

Ultimately, all of our bodies will break down in some way. We cannot escape that no matter how adva! nced
modern medicine has become. We need to be thankful daily for the good health God gives us. It is one of the greatest blessings we have. There is an old saying, that you can’t put a price on good health. There are many people who have accumulated much wealth in this world. Yet, without good health they don’t have a chance to enjoy it. That is another reason why the temporary things of this world have no real meaning.

I love you and care about you so much. Know that I am praying for you today to NEVER forget the blessing of good health. We never know how long that will last, so don’t squander the blessing. God has given us this life to serve and glorify Him. Our health is a tool we use to do that. Make it count!

For those who are reading this who are struggling in this area, know you are in my prayers. God is still in the healing business!!! The same Jesus who healed in the Bible heals today!!! HE IS ABLE!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend! and
brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

Are you carrying the pain of your past with you today?

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

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR 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!!!

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 hav! e 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 bon! dage 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 t! he pain
of your past with you each day. He wants you to 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 tribulations 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, “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 l! ike 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, or 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

The greatest thing you can do today!!!

(Psalms 41:1)

***THE LIVEPRAYER CHURCH!!! Haven’t been to church yet this week? Join me for this week’s service at the LivePrayer Church. This week’s message is: “Why is Jesus standing?” Please visit the website at: http://liveprayerchurch.com and be part this week’s worship service. Each Sunday there will be a new service at 12:01am EDT

***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 Almight! y God, a God who
will not be mocked! USE ME OH GOD…USE MY LIFE! In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

I want to encourage you today to take about an hour, sit down with your Bible, and look at all the scriptures concerning care for the poor and needy. One thing I have learned about God and the way that He has Divinely given us His Word, is when you see the same issue talked about over and over, throughout the Bible from the Old to New Testament-God is trying to emphasize a point. He could not be clearer as to our responsibility to help the poor. Now, of course, this immediately brings to mind mental images of the homeless, those begging on corners for food, the ones who occupy the shelters at night. But I want you to focus today not only on those who are financially poor, but also those who are SPIRITUALLY POOR.

Throughout Jesus’s earthly ministry, He reached out to all segments of society. To those who had wealth and resources, He tried to focus them on their bankrupt spiritual ! life.
Jesus said, “What shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?” Today, I want you to be aware of the “poor” people you may come in contact with every day. Not just those who are financially poor, but those who are spiritually poor as well.

We have a responsibility to share the Good News of Jesus Christ, the hope and love of Christ with these people just as we would share a meal with someone who was hungry. It is not an option, but an obligation that we have as followers of Christ to reach out to those who are hurting and need to know there are answers beyond the things of this world.

I am going to pray today that you take this challenge to heart during the upcoming holiday season and really focus, not just on the visibly poor that you may see each day, but also those who may have worldly riches but are flat broke spiritually. You see, in those difficult times that we all face in life, losing a loved one, health problems, changing jobs, trouble! s at
home, whatever the issue may be, power, prestige, and money are not the answer.

Only the strength, wisdom, and love of Christ can get us through those most difficult times in our life. Open your eyes today and look at those around you who may need a spiritual handout today just to make it to tomorrow. God has called us to help the poor. Not just the financially poor, but also the spiritually poor!

Bless someone today. The greatest thing you can do today is to be a blessing to someone. God has placed someone in your life today for you to be His instrument of blessing. This might be some sort of assistance you give, a kind word, being a sympathetic ear. Or it could be in a way they won’t even know such as a prayer, or an anonymous gesture to help them. It is amazing when we concentrate each day on how we can bless others, how much God, in turn, blesses us.

Most of the time, we are so caught up in our own lives, our own problems, that we forget others around u! s who are
also having difficulties. You will be amazed at how different your life looks when you start to take the focus off of your own circumstances, and try to become a blessing to someone else.

I have no doubt that Jesus had many difficulties that anyone who lives on this earth have. But in all the Gospel accounts of His life, it is not His problems we see Him concerned with, but the problems of others. This is due to the fact that He knew the promises of God and trusted God with His problems. How great to get to a point in our walk with the Lord, where our faith is so strong that we virtually ignore our own problems to live for others, trusting and knowing god is working on our behalf.

Today, I challenge you to bless someone. Someone you know, a stranger, God will show you. One of the ways many of you have been blessing others is by sharing the Daily Devotional with friends and family members, suggesting they sign up to receive them in their email every day. I get em! ails all
the time from people saying, “Your Daily Devotional today was exactly what I needed.” This is an example of how you can bless someone and touch their life.

I pray that today will be a special day. It is a day unique unto itself and will never be repeated. Make it extra special by blessing someone, and have the faith to know that God is blessing you in return. I love you and will be praying for you.

SPECIAL YEAR-END GIFT!!!

A special word that EVERYONE needs today, especially me!!!

(Mark 6:31)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help me to stand strong in these difficult days. I know that in the end, YOU…and YOU alone will have the final word. Give me boldness and courage to stand for you as evil abounds. In the name of Jesus I pray..AMEN!!!

We have become so busy every day, our lives so tightly scheduled, that we never seem to have an opportunity to just relax and allow our minds and bodies to refresh. When was the last time that you took a few hours and did nothing but just relax? If Jesus had to get away from time to time to rest, how much more do we need to?

In this fast-paced society where we push ourselves to the limit constantly, it is no wonder why so many turn to alcohol, drugs, and illicit sex. It is no wonder why so many end up in the hospital. We end up burning out our minds and bodies and try to find the temporary relief to just get through one more day.

God never intended for his creation to live! this
way. Productivity is fine, but to never stop and relax and allow ourselves the time to recharge, is destructive. Our original purpose was to serve and glorify our Creator. How can we do this when we are so focused on all of the things of this world that occupy our time. In our busy day, the first thing we neglect is our time alone with God. Our time of fellowship with Him, in prayer, the word. How can we truly have a personal relationship with someone that we never take the time to be with?

Let me encourage you today. Slow down. Make time each day to fellowship with God. You can do more in His strength than you could ever do in your own. Why try to do it all with the little bit you have, when He can do it all with the might and limitless power of the creator of the universe! Today, the Lord is saying to you, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Stop, relax, and refresh.

I love you and care about you so much. Take the refre! shing
that can only come from God. My friend, you will be able to do more, accomplish more, feel better, and enjoy life, when you are living each day in His unlimited strength and not your own.

Please continue to pray for Liveprayer.com. One of our greatest needs is to have all our friends help us get the word out about this ministry. Try to get your church to put the web address in your bulletin for people who need prayer. Let people on your social media sites know about this incredible 24/7 LIVE prayer ministry here to meet their needs. Let your friends, family members, and co-workers know they can get this Devotional every day in their email by simply going to our website, http://www.liveprayer.com and sign up under the DAILY DEVOTIONAL link.

God bless you and take time today to be still and get alone with the Lord. I know I will be doing that today!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

YOU are making history today!!!

Leave a comment

(Hebrews Chapter 11)

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

I have always enjoyed history. Two of my favorite television channels are the History Channel and ESPN Classic. In school I loved American History. The incredible stories of how our nation was founded. All of the various wars we have been engaged in throughout our 242 years. Being a sports fan, I enjoy reading about those who pioneered the games of football, basketball, and baseball.

So I guess it was natural for me to love the great stories in the Bible, the greatest history book of all time. I love to read the wri! tings of
the Jewish historian Josephus. Studying the history of the church throughout the years has been a passion of mine.

What makes history most exciting though is not just the great events, but the men and women who were responsible for, and made those great events happen. Only God knows how many billions of people have lived throughout human history. The fact is, we each make this journey called life just once. It is a very brief journey, measured by an average of only 60 some years.

Whatever opportunity we may have to put our stamp on this world we are living in, to contribute to history happens in those few years. Should Christ tarry in His return, the history those in future generations will read about is being made each and every day right now!

With the understanding that this is a brief journey we are on, we should be motivated to get the most out of each and every day. Our focus each day should be on fulfilling our reason for being alive, and that is to ! serve and
glorify the Lord through our lives. I have written previously that the greatest legacy we can leave is the lives we have influenced for Christ throughout our journey.

We will live on in those God has brought across our path during our years here on earth. In serving Him, we should not be afraid to dream big. You see my friend, we have a big God. He is only limited by our faith. The Bible says, “Where there is no vision the people perish”. What God needs in these last days more than ever is a people sold out to Him, not afraid to dream big dreams, and have total faith in Him.

Every day people die, and will be forever separated from God because they do not know Christ as their Savior. Every day people all over the world are dealing with the trials and tribulations of everyday life, hurting, without hope because they do not know Jesus. God has called us to be the light to this dark world. We must allow Him to use our lives to be that light in the midst of the darkn! ess so
many live in.

That is what He asks me to do each day, and what He asks you to do each day. As we are faithful over a little, “He makes us ruler over much.” He will use our lives to whatever degree we allow Him to use us.

Our motivation is critical. The Bible teaches in many places that we set our desires on the things of heaven, not on earth. You can spend your entire life trying to be the best athlete, the best businessman. the most successful actress, the recording artist who sells the most records, the top military man in your country, a scientist who makes many wonderful discoveries, or the best at whatever profession you want to name, and you may succeed.

But unless you were doing it for the Lord, allowing the Lord to use your success to bring His message of hope and love through Christ to people, the best you can hope for is a paragraph in history books that one day will no longer exist. That means your lifetime accomplishments are temporal at best. ! That is
why when our motivation is Heaven-bound, the accomplishments have an eternal significance in the changed hearts and eternal souls of people.

I love you and care about you so much. I realize many of you are being buried with the cares of this world today. I work hard each day to encourage you, pray for you, try to help you overcome these distractions since they keep you from fully focusing on all God has planned for your life. It is a tactic of the enemy to keep us so distracted that we aren’t able to be all God calls for us to be. I am praying for you today to see victory over these battles in your life, knowing that God has more for you to do before your journey here is over.

The fact is, there will always be battles in our life, always be distractions. We must deal with those battles but never lose sight of the fact God has a plan and purpose for our life. Many say I’ll serve God when my life is straight. Guess what, your life is never going to be 100% straight! , and you
are giving the enemy a victory he doesn’t deserve when you do that.

Every great man and woman of God fought the daily battles in their personal life. That is part of the human condition. The difference was they didn’t let those battles stop them from being all God called them to be, and serving Him with their life.

It is no accident that you are reading this message today. It is no accident that we are living at this very moment in human history. We can either just live out our time, or we can use this precious gift God has given us to serve Him and glorify Him. I want to personally challenge you today to take 15 minutes during the next 24 hours.

Get alone with God, just you and God, and pray this prayer:”Dear God, here I am. You know all about me. You know my weaknesses, my strengths. You know the battles I am facing in my life right now. But I believe that you have a perfect plan for my life. I want to surrender myself to you this very moment so that you! r plan
for my life might be fulfilled. It is NOT my life, it belongs to you. Show me what you want me to do, and I will do it. Today is the day. Now is the time. Guide me and direct me to do your will. IN Jesus’ name, AMEN”.

Now spend some time with the Lord, and I promise you the Holy Spirit will begin to speak to you, and God will open doors in your life, and He will reveal to you through the Word, through prayer, through other people, through the circumstances in your life what it is He is asking you to do. He will start small, and as you are faithful in a little, He will give you more.

TODAY IS THE DAY AND NOW IS THE TIME! It is our turn to make history, eternal history in the lives of hurting and lost people!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

(2 Corinthians 5:6-8; Luke 16:19-31)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help me to get through this day and the challenges that I will be facing today. Guide me, strengthen me, and give me wisdom as I make choices throughout this day. Please watch over my family and those I love in this world, and keep them safe. I love you Lord, and depend upon you each moment of each day. Bless me as I go through the day, living my life for your glory. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

It was just over 4 years ago that comedian Robin Williams took his own life. I felt it was such a critical Daily Devotional I wrote in the days after, the Holy Spirit was telling me this morning that I had to share those powerful words with you today. Please, PRAY before you read this, since it goes to the heart of the 19+ years of work here at Liveprayer and who each of us is as a follower of Jesus Christ!!!

God is NOT laughing! Death and standing in the presence of God ! your
Creator is no laughing matter! Sadly, comedian/actor Robin Williams took his own life in August of 2014 at the age of 63. Williams was one of the premiere comedic talents of our time as well as starring in dozens of great movies, playing both comedy and serious roles, winning the Oscar for his work in “Good Will Hunting.”

Williams battled cocaine and alcohol addiction, cleaning up his life after the death of his friend John Belushi from a drug overdose and the birth of his son. He remained clean and sober for 20 years before relapsing several years ago. Throughout his life, Williams was constantly dealing with severe bouts of depression. It has been reported that in his final days he was severely depressed, a common factor in many suicides.

Based on his documented statements over the years, his anti-Biblical stand on all of the cultural issues of our day such as abortion and the radical homosexual agenda, in addition to his public mocking of God and Jesus as par! t of his
comedic routines, it is clear that sadly Robin Williams had completely rejected God and saw God’s existence “possible but unlikely.”

Like all who take their last breath of life, the very next moment they are standing before God their Creator. Whatever fame or fortune they may have enjoyed during this life is meaningless. At that exact moment the only thing that will matter is the choice you made during your life regarding Jesus. You will stand before God either clothed in your sins and be cast into everlasting darkness, eternally separated from God your Creator, or having come to Christ by faith you will be wearing a white robe of righteousness and be welcomed into the glories of Heaven to spend eternity with God your Creator!

Sadly, Robin Williams, like all who die having rejected faith in Christ is now and forever will be in the eternal torment of hell. There will be no jokes in hell. There will be no impromptu ad-lib comedy skits in hell. There will only be the
gnashing of teeth and eternal punishment for sin that we ALL deserve!!!

It is so sad, since someone like Robin Williams like many famous people, have had the advantage of being exposed to virtually every kind of belief system and religious thought that exists. They are intelligent, well-traveled, with a wide range of personal experiences. I am certain that with the number of Christians within the entertainment industry, as well as those who reach out to that world, Williams had many opportunities during his life to hear the Gospel. Like so many, he made the conscious choice to reject that message.

Let me just interject that I am sick and tired every time a famous person dies, the media making their flippant comments about that person being with God. Virtually every program had an interview with someone who knew Robin Williams talking about him making God laugh. This makes a mockery of Christ and what He did on the cross, feeding into the universalistic lie from h! ell that
all “good people” will get to Heaven. The Bible says there is NONE, NO NOT ONE, who is “good” since we are all sinners. There is certainly nothing for God to laugh at when it involves the soul of a person who has rejected faith in Christ and stands before their Creator in their sin!!!

The Bible clearly tells us that tomorrow is promised to none of us. The fact is, the moment each person takes their last breath, they 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 separa! ted 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. I have no doubt that Robin Williams did many good works throughout his life, but good works CANNOT save you. A pastor or priest simply praying over you while you are dyi! ng 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.

I am certain that somewhere in the world within a few minutes of the passing of Robin Williams, a man that had accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior also died. This man was not known by the world, he was never on TV or in movies, he did not possess a gift to make people laugh, he did not have great wealth, but death is the great equalizer.

As Williams died without Christ, this man who 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 somewhere in the world who died having chosen to put his faith in Jesus, despite having no fame or fortune during his 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. I pray that those in the family of Robin Williams who may know Christ as their Savior have found His comfort, and those who do not may have had their hearts opened to Christ’s love during their time of memories of him.

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. You see, it was Jesus that died on a cross 2,000 years ago for your sins and mine. That is why ONLY faith in Jesus 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. Read the words and watch the short video 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.

*If you know someone who is not saved, please share this message with them. It may be the difference between that person spending eternity in everlasting darkness or in the eternal rest and Glory of God our Creator!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller
