Jesus Christ Is Lord

That every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father!

Do You Fear God? You Had Better!

Posted by Job on May 7, 2008

“I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and
after that can do no more. But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear
him who, after the killing of the body, has power to throw you into hell.
Yes, I tell you, fear him.”  Luke 12:4,5

Men no longer fear God.  Jesus taught his disciples a great truth about
human nature that is just as applicable today as it was when our Lord spoke
these words.  He pointed out how men feared other men, those who could take
their life, but had no real fear of God, the one who could condemn their
soul to eternal punishment.  Fast forward 2000 years later and the same
mindset exists.  Men will fear other men, but have little to no fear of God.
We fear those who can kill us, but the reality is, we will all die one day.
We show no fear of God, the one each man will stand before and be judged by
the moment they die.

If you accept the Bible for what it is, God’s inspired, inerrant word
representing absolute truth and our final authority in all matters, then
Solomon was the wisest man that ever lived. Over the years, I have carefully
studied his life, the things he said, trying to tap into his wisdom. As a
man, like all men, Solomon made many mistakes in his life and gave into the
temptations of this sinful world on many occasions. It doesn’t make me feel
any better, but it does help when I make mistakes to know that even the
wisest man who ever lived also made many mistakes during his life.

I have torn apart the Book of Ecclesiastes many times and have spent
countless hours reading Solomon’s summation of this life. In looking back
over his life, having had all that anyone who lives in this world could ever
want, the word that Solomon used over and over was “meaningless.” As he
looked back, he realized that in the end all of the temporal things of this
world were exactly that, meaningless. It is, actually, a pretty negative
book until you get to the next to last verse. As only the wisest man who
ever lived could, in 6 words Solomon summed up what this life is all about,
“Fear God and Keep His Commandments.”

This may sound like an oversimplification, but it really isn’t. The Hebrew
word for fear is not the type of fear you have when you are afraid, but
literally means to be in awe, in reverence. That should always be our
attitude towards God-awe and reverence. Keeping His commandments refers to
obeying the Word of God. My friends, if we can do this throughout our lives,
fear God and keep His commandments, we have found the key to what this life
is really all about since this is the whole duty of man.

You see, this world honors those who lead great armies into war, rule
empires and nations; those who have amassed tremendous wealth; people who
are responsible for accomplishing incredible feats during their life. But
all of these great accomplishments are only temporary. The truly great
accomplishments in this life are the things we do that will stand for
eternity.  Sharing the truth of God’s Word with people, leading the lost to
an everlasting relationship with Jesus Christ, helping those who know Christ
become all God wants them to be. These are things the world will never see,
but God will remember.

Solomon at the end of his long, successful, and distinguished life on this
earth summed it all up by saying that the whole duty of man is to fear God
and keep His commandments!!!

I love you and care about you so much. I tell you often to stay focused on
the things above as opposed to the things of this life. I pray, today, that
you will take a long hard look at your goals and priorities, and make
fearing God and keeping His commandments number one. Our purpose in this
life is to serve and glorify God. If fearing Him and keeping His
commandments is how to fulfill His purpose for our life, then that must be
our top priority each day.

I pray today that you will listen to the wisdom of Solomon and that each day
the most important thing in your life will be to “fear God and keep His
commandments.” That, my friend, is the whole duty of man and the bottom line
to what this life is all about.  I pray today that you will heed the words
of Jesus and not fear men who can kill your physical body that will one day
expire and return to the dust of the earth as God commanded, but fear the
one who will judge your eternal soul…God!

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

Oprah Winfrey’s Course In Miracles Is New Age Spiritism!

Posted by Job on January 9, 2008

2 Peter 2:1, Matthew 24:23-27, Matthew 7:15,16, 2 Timothy 4:3,4

Three lives who influence millions each day. For the last 6 years I have
warned you about 3 different people whose lives influence millions of
people. Amazingly, all 3 of those people are hot in the news today. I wish
I had the thousands of emails I have received over the years from people who
have given me so much grief for simply sharing the truth about these people,
since I have been right about them all along. The purpose today is not to
gloat or say “I told you so,” but to reiterate the warning I have shared
often that those who lead people AWAY from God and His Truth are most
dangerous of all, no matter how rich and popular they may be or how much the
media glorifies them. There is only ONE TRUTH, the Bible, and there is only
ONE HOPE, Jesus!

I began warning people about Britney Spears 7 years ago when she became this
mega pop superstar, shedding her wholesome Mickey Mouse Club image for that
of a stripper singing about sex and rebellion, causing millions of young
girls to want to be just like her. It has been sad to watch her life
continue to spiral downward over the years as she has battled with drugs,
alcohol, and failed marriages, all the result of a life being lived in
complete rebellion to God. Her most recent meltdown, a drug-induced
standoff with police after locking herself in a bathroom with one of her
children because she didn’t want to give them back to their father, landed
her in the psych ward of an LA hospital. Even as her life has slowly
deteriorated over the years, she still has millions of fans and continues to
influence the lives of those who want to be like her.

Another highly influential person I have been warning people about since he
appeared on the scene is Oprah’s creation Dr. Phil. Oprah owns his program
and is the only reason anyone even knows who Dr. Phil is. My concern about
Phil McGraw has always been two-fold. First, the counsel he gives on his
program is NOT Biblical, but the pop-psycho babble of the world. He has
taken stands against God’s Word on issues like sex, marriage and sins like
homosexuality in order to appeal to the masses. His program is not about
helping people but exploiting them for ratings. Again, the danger of Dr.
Phil lies in the fact he is not only leading people AWAY from Biblical
Truth, but millions are tuning in to his program each day looking for
answers and only getting a Band-aid of worldly advice.

The second major concern I have with Dr. Phil is that he claims to be a
Christian. Only God knows his heart, but he routinely goes on Christian
networks and programs to tap into that audience, saying many of the right
things when he appears in those venues, yet continuing to dispense advice in
contradiction to the Bible on his program. Biblically illiterate church
goers are conned by his charisma, and he has built up over the years a huge
following of non-discerning Christians who have bought into the gospel of
Dr. Phil.

If you ever needed an example of what a sick, manipulative, and exploitive
person Dr. Phil is, you need look no further than his involvement in Britney
Spears’ recent meltdown. Just like he has interjected himself in the lives
of other high profile celebrities and cases, people like entertainment
reporter Pat O’Brian who had a recent battle with drugs and alcohol and
Natalie Holloway’s family to name a couple, Dr. Phil raced to “intervene” in
Britney’s case supposedly at the behest of her parents.

I was encouraged, however, when I found out that Britney made the best
choice she has made in many years when she refused to allow Dr. Phil to see
her in the hospital. For context, he will be having Britney’s parents on
his program this week. With one daughter in full meltdown, another 16 and
pregnant, these are parents who really could use some Godly counsel, but
sadly, will only get the typical exploitive advice geared to boost ratings.
How sick to use such a real life tragedy for ratings!

As a side note, Thomas Nelson publishers which was recently sold to a
secular concern, is scheduled to release a book by Britney’s mother on
parenting. Of all the moms walking this planet to be writing about
parenting, the mother of Britney and Jamie Lynn Spears is probably the worst
choice for such a book.

The third person is the most dangerous woman on the planet due to her money
and influence, Oprah. One of my many quotes about Oprah over the years that
the secular press has hammered me on was when I called her a “New Age
witch.” I won’t be holding my breath for their apologies, but that is
EXACTLY what she is, even more so now that on her XM Satellite Radio program
this year there will be a year-long study on the New Age “A Course in
Miracles.”

This course was created by a Jewish atheistic psychologist from Columbia
University who began to write down a 1,000 pages of messages from a spirit
she believed to be Jesus. (My note: Frank Peretti fans will recognize how similar this is to Juleen Langstrat in “This Present Darkness!) As she wrote, she says, the words “This is a course in miracles” appeared. The course promises to “provide a way in
which some people will be able to find their own Internal Teacher,” in other
words, their personal ‘Spirit Guide.'”

The conclusion of the course is: don’t worry about your conduct, since
there is no such thing as sin, believe what you want to believe there is no
absolute truth, it doesn’t matter whether you follow Buddha, Krishna, or
Jesus as your enlightened leader, don’t worry about hell, there is no
punishment, and that salvation comes from yourself. Just like on her TV
program where she gives a forum to every New Age philosophy and cult known
to man, promoting garbage like “The Secret,” it is Oprah once again setting
herself out as the spiritual guru to the nation with her own brand of New
Age lies from the pits of hell.

Of course, she would NEVER have the guts to have someone like myself on her
program who would clearly lay out the fact there is only ONE Truth, the
Bible, and only ONE way to be saved, faith in Jesus Christ, since that would
strip her of her powers to dictate to people what truth is. Because of her
worldwide fame, billions of dollars, and power within the entertainment
community, Oprah is without a doubt the most dangerous woman on this planet
today and the closest thing there is to the anti-Christ!

I love you and care about you so much. You would not believe the number of
lives people like Britney, even in her current state, Dr. Phil, and Oprah
influence. All 3 of these people are dangerous because they are leading
people AWAY from Christ and Biblical Truth. Please take a few minutes today
and pray for Britney. She doesn’t need the exploitive Dr. Phil to intervene
in her life, but a solid man or woman of God who isn’t looking for the
cameras, only the opportunity to help lead this troubled soul to the only
hope and answer she has, Jesus! Pray for Dr. Phil. If he truly is saved,
he needs to start putting Christ before the fame and fortune of this world
and start using his visibility to bring people God’s Truth and letting
people know Christ is the ONLY hope now and for all eternity. Also pray for
Oprah. I still believe that if she got saved and sold out for Christ, she
could become one of the most powerful vessels ever to bring Christ to this
world.

I will be praying for you today. It is so easy to get caught up following
those we see in the media and gravitate to their thoughts and ideas. Never
forget, there is only one truth. It is not what we want it to be or what
someone else says it is, it is what GOD SAYS IT IS IN HIS WORD! That is
what must guide our lives each day. I will pray that you measure all you
see and hear from anyone, even those men and women who represent the Lord,
against the Truth of the Bible. Our lives can be influenced by many
different people. My word for you today is to take a moment and really
think about who is influencing your life today. Make sure it is someone who
is following the Lord and influencing you to follow God’s Word and to serve
and honor Christ with your life each day!

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

Is It OK For A Christian To Smoke Marijuana?

Posted by Job on December 22, 2007

liveprayer.com/signup.cfm

(Please note: this is a Bill Keller devotional. I do not have a television show. Or anything like that.) A question I get at least once a day and many times a week on my television
program is, “Is it OK to smoke marijuana?” The person asking the question
always throws in that marijuana comes from God and that makes it all right.
There are also many websites that give people what they think is Biblical
support that smoking marijuana is acceptable for a Christian. Before I deal
with this issue in more depth, let me answer the question first. NO! Letter
N. Letter O. NO!

Why no? Let’s start first with the fact it is ILLEGAL! You really don’t need
any other reason. However, putting that fact to the side, let’s deal with
the argument that it is OK to smoke pot since it is a creation of God. Yes,
God did create the plant marijuana comes from. However, God NEVER intended
you to dry the plant out, go to 7-11 and buy a pack of Zig Zags, crumble the
dried plant in the rolling paper, roll it up and smoke it. That my friend is
a perverted use of God’s creation.

In addition to the fact it is illegal and a perverted use of God’s creation,
smoking marijuana is extremely harmful to your health. It is actually worse
than smoking cigarettes and can kill you. Sucking that toxic smoke into your
lungs will not only ruin your health and take years from your life, but it
is polluting the temple of the Holy Spirit. The only difference between
smoking marijuana and putting a loaded revolver to your temple and pulling
the trigger is the gun will kill you instantly and smoking marijuana takes
some time.

Lastly, the only reason you smoke marijuana is to get that “high” feeling.
God wants us to have a SOUND mind, not an altered mind! When you are high,
you are not able to think clear and under the influence of marijuana will
make choices that you normally would never make otherwise. We have spoken in
the past how every day we make many choices. Our choices to follow and obey
God bring blessings. Our choices to rebel against God bring consequences.
When you are high you are much more likely to make choices in rebellion to
God and His Word and end up paying a huge price for those choices.

Listen my friend, satan is the great justifier. He will always help you to
rationalize and justify sinning against God, almost making it seem like the
right thing to do. There is absolutely NO Biblical support for smoking
marijuana. The same game people play in using the Bible to try and justify
the sin of homosexuality is played in using the Bible to try and justify
smoking pot. Taking verses out of context, stating a verse means one thing
when it clearly means another, making assumptions the Word does not support,
are all tricks the enemy will use to try and justify smoking marijuana.
Never forget, satan is a LIAR!

Let me add that I am well aware that marijuana is also used medicinally by
terminally ill people with cancer and other diseases. We are talking about a
fraction of 1% who are in this group and have been legally prescribed
medicinal marijuana by a doctor. What we are talking about today is the 99+%
who smoke marijuana illegally simply to get high. I am also well aware of
the efforts by some to legalize marijuana and the various arguments on both
sides. The biggest mind altering substance is already legal and that is
alcohol. We don’t need another mind altering substance legalized that will
create even more marijuana addicts. Marijuana already destroys so many lives
and legalizing it will only destroy more.

I love you and care about you so much. If you ever wanted a great example of
the power of our culture today, just the fact I am doing an entire
Devotional on this issue is proof of that. While for most reading these
words today, this topic is a no brainer, I can assure you there will be many
who think there is nothing wrong with smoking marijuana. They will tell you
it is no different than alcohol, though they forget one small detail.
Drinking alcohol, as bad as it is, is legal while smoking marijuana is
against the law. It is not only illegal but is ruins your health, alters
your mind, is a perverted use of God’s creation, and destroys lives.

For those of you in bondage to marijuana or who knows someone who is, I want
you to know that it is no accident you are reading these words today. God is
speaking to you about quitting. The first step to finding freedom from this
bondage you are in to marijuana is to want to quit. Once you come to that
place, God will help deliver you and set you free by His power. It is like
any other bondage, you need to find people to be accountable to, drop those
in your life who are still part of that world, and fully surrender to the
Lord and find His strength each day to walk in victory.

If you are in bondage to marijuana or know someone who is, I will be praying
today for the Lord to deliver you or the one you know from that bondage.
Smoking marijuana is just a momentary escape from life that doesn’t solve
your problems, only compounds them. Satan wants to keep you in bondage to
marijuana, God wants to set you free. I will be praying for you or the one
you know today to quit listening to the lies of satan whose goal is to
destroy you, and start listening to God who wants to bless you.

The greatest high of this life doesn’t come from smoking pot, the greatest
high in this life comes from the Spirit of the living God!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller bkeller@liveprayer.com

***ARE YOU 100% CERTAIN WHERE YOU WILL SPEND ETERNITY? The fact is you will die one day. At that moment, you will either spend eternity with the Lord or

Have You Looked At Pornography In The Past 24 Hours?

Posted by Job on December 22, 2007

liveprayer.com/signup.cfm

Question. Have you looked at pornography in the past 24 hours? How about
in the past 24 minutes? It is NO ACCIDENT you are reading this message
today! God is speaking to you!

If there was ever a guy who belonged in jail, it is Joe Francis, the
infamous founder of the Girls Gone Wild pornographic videos. Sadly, in this
nation they don’t put people in prison for poisoning minds and hearts, but
earlier this year Francis was in jail on contempt of court charges stemming
from a civil lawsuit for using under age girls in his videos, and has
subsequently been indicted for failure to pay over $20 million in taxes. It
couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy!

The reality is, Francis’ legal problems stem from his ego and pride more
than anything else. He will settle the civil case he was being held on,
settle an incident he had while in jail for being in possession of
contraband (his business partner smuggled in a bottle of water, cash, and
some sleeping pills), and he will write a check to the IRS to clear up his
tax issues. You see, Francis has the money to buy the best lawyers and pay
his way out of these current legal problems. He has made that money by being
a big contributor over the last 10 years to the ever growing porn monster in
this nation with his popular Girls Gone Wild video series.

The Girls Gone Wild video series grosses $40 million a year in sales. FORTY
MILLION! There is virtually no production costs since these videos are
nothing more than a single video camera filming young girls on Spring Break,
in nightclubs, at places like Mardis Gras, exposing their breasts and bodies
for the camera. They pay the girls nothing so the only real costs involved
are tied up in the marketing of these videos to consumers. The ironic thing
is the target audience for this garbage are middle age men, many who have
daughters the age of the girls in the videos.

I’ll never forget 4 years ago I received an email from a man who was
struggling with an addiction to porn. He emailed me that the last straw for
him was sitting down one night to watch a Girls Gone Wild video, when all of
a sudden on the screen…was his daughter! He told me that as he sat there
frozen, seeing his daughter expose her body for the camera, all he could
think about were the tens of thousands of men who would watch that video,
looking at his little girl as nothing more than a sex object. It took that
experience for this man to come under the conviction he needed to take a
stand and fight his addiction to pornography.

Pornography is a problem many men, AND women have battled for a long time.
With the advent of the Internet, it has made accessibility to pornography
incredibly easy, and has now become a very real societal problem. As with
all problems in society, many Christians also end up caught in the traps the
enemy has laid to destroy people’s lives. Let me say up front, DO NOT
underestimate the destructive power of pornography. Like all sin, it starts
almost innocently, but always escalates. One day you are browsing through
X-rated pictures, and the next you are actually involved in a real physical
relationship. One day you are chatting with someone, the next your chat
becomes more graphic, and then you are actually sitting next to them. Like
all sin, there is a seductiveness that eases you into it, and one day you
wake up and you are in total bondage to that sin.

The reason pornography is a sin is because God’s plan for sex is ONLY for
marriage, and with your spouse. Our sexual thoughts are to be only about
that person God gives us to share our life with. ALL other thoughts are
impure. Fantasies take our mind to places they shouldn’t be going. Even if
we never act on them. Jesus said, “If you lust in your heart, you have
already committed the sin.” Is that a high standard? Yes! But God has called
us to live at a high level in our life. We are to live above the low
standards of this world. We are to find our sexual satisfaction in the mate
God gives us to share our life with. That means very simply this. First of
all, if you are NOT married, you need to keep your thoughts pure and save
not only your body, but your MIND for the one God has for your life. If you
are married, your sexual thoughts and activities are to be ONLY with your
husband or wife. Anything else is not God’s plan and is sin.

Now that we know what God expects, let’s talk about real life. There is to
be NO compromise. This is what God expects from us. Now, how do we get to
that point. The best case is you are still young, have not been exposed to
pornography, you have the warning of this message to guard yourself against
it. For those who have been exposed in the past to pornography, the key is
to “renew your mind” and flush it out. We do that each day using the
spiritual detergent of God’s Word. Stay away from porn and guard your
thought life.

Of course, there are those who are currently involved in pornography at some
level. It is bondage. Before you can get victory over it, you have to want
to quit. Once you get to that point, you must realize it is a battle. Like
any battle, to see victory you need a battle plan. You need one or several
people in your life to be accountable to. You need the strength each day
only the Lord can give you. There is victory over pornography just like any
other sin if you really WANT victory.

***IT IS NO COINCIDENCE THAT YOU ARE READING THESE WORDS TODAY. SATAN WANTS
TO DESTROY YOUR LIFE. GOD IS SPEAKING TO YOU NOW TO DEAL WITH THIS ISSUE
BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE. IF YOU DON’T, IT WILL DESTROY YOUR RELATIONSHIPS, IT
WILL RUIN YOUR FUTURE, AND IT CAN LITERALLY KILL YOU. DEAL WITH IT NOW!!!

I love you and care about you so much. I will be praying for you. I realize
this is hitting home with many of you. Let it be a special tap on the
shoulder from God that NOW is the time to deal with this issue in your life.
It isn’t going to change until you decide to change. As you know, any time
we pervert the original plan of God, things never really work. We always get
cheated out of the best God has for us when we settle for what the world
offers. You can only know the true blessings of God, the fullness of what
life can give, when we are in His will, living life His way.

Please take a moment and pray for Joe Francis. Pray that through all he is
going through in his life right now, he will open his heart to hear God’s
voice speaking to him. He is obviously a very creative and talented young
man. He could use that talent and creativity to do great things for the
Kingdom. Pray that he will open his heart to receive Christ’s love and turn
his heart from this world and destroying people’s lives, to Jesus and help
save lives!

Since this is such an incredible problem so many face, this Friday, I will
be spending several hours praying for those in this bondage to pornography.
God is in the deliverance business, and I know that He can deliver you from
the bondage of pornography. I will be praying for those people fighting this
sin in their life and believing God to touch their heart, bring them under
conviction, and help them to have the courage to take the steps necessary to
walk away from this sin and live a victorious life. He is able, and can set
you free. God is STILL in the deliverance business!!!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller bkeller@liveprayer.com

Bill Keller Shows How Not To Evangelize Muslims

Neuroiconoclasticskeptisiser Alert: Disney Film The Golden Compass Promoting Atheism

Posted by Job on November 27, 2007

liveprayer.com/signup.cfm

“Yet when I preach the gospel, I cannot boast, for I am compelled to preach.
Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!” 1 Corinthians 9:16

The assault on the Christian faith continues in earnest, while some are
fighting back! There is a new movie hitting theaters worldwide the first
week of December to cash in on the Christmas season. This is a wonderful
movie geared to teach children there is no God and to indoctrinate them from
their earliest years to become atheists. The movie called “The Golden
Compass” is a movie adaptation of a book series by the atheist and a bold
and brazen hater of the Christian faith, Philip Pullman. The Golden Compass
is the first in a fantasy trilogy of books entitled “His Darkest Materials.”
Pullman’s books are designed to spread his atheistic beliefs to children,
and the hero of his story acutally kills “god.”

The movie version of Pullman’s book intentionally left out the Godless
themes. Many feel this was not only done to make the movie more accepted by
a mainstream audience, but in an attempt to create a hype around Pullman’s
books which are clearly written to teach children the Christian faith is a
myth, there is no God, and the church is an organization that tortures and
kills children. There is no doubt that if the movie does well at the box
office, sales of his books will sky rocket. For a complete review of this
movie and book series written by my dear friend Dr. Ted Baehr for
WorldNetDaily, go to: http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=58341

I am sharing this with you today for several reasons. First of course, is
to warn parents to keep their children away from both the movie and the
books. Second though, is to make the case again that in this dark, fallen,
and increasingly Godless world, Christians better start speaking up, better
start competing for the hearts, minds, and SOULS of men since that is the
real battle! While most Christians are too busy with their lives to care
about the world around them, tools of satan like Pullman are busy spreading
their gospel of death and destruction, and without conscience purposely
targeting children.

They understand the better percentage of 2 full generations have never been
to church, so they have virtually no resistance in lying to children there
is no God, Christians are weak and pathetic, and the church is only about
money and power. JK Rowling already proved how easy it is to reach children
with her “stories” glorifying witchcraft, wizardry, and sorcery, while
parents were either too busy to care what their children were reading or
actually helped in making her garbage available to them. Why would a parent
who has a weak belief in God or none at all, rejects the Bible as Truth,
doesn’t have a relationship with Jesus, and never goes to church, care if
their children were reading books that promoted atheism?

On the positive side of the movie theater aisle is the movie “Bella.” Bella
is a small, independently produced film that won the People’s Choice award
at the 2006 Toronto Film Festival. It isn’t riddled with sex and violence,
but is a wonderful story of life. It is about a young woman who finds
herself pregnant, contemplates having an abortion, but decides to KEEP THE
BABY! It is a movie where God is a prominent thread throughout and takes a
clear stand that life is precious. This is a movie families SHOULD see with
their children, since it gives you great opportunities as you eat pizza or
ice cream afterwards, to reinforce the powerful lessons of life this movie
portrays.

So my friend, the battle wages on. That shrinking minority of people who
love Jesus will stay away from “The Golden Compass,” while the masses flock
to it and then to the books. This movie and the books will only reinforce
in the minds of those who are growing up void of God that there is no such
being, that Christians are mentally unstable people who hate everyone, that
the Bible is a book of fictional stories, and believing in Jesus is no
different than believing in Santa Claus! This is the growing mindset of the
masses my friend, and now God-haters like Pullman are helping to
indoctrinate and reinforce these ideas in the impressionable minds of
children!

What can you do? KEEP SPEAKING OUT WHEN YOU GET THE OPPORTUNITY! Don’t back down at work, at school, in the gym, in the grocery store line. Rise
up and take your stand for Christ and His Truth. Why are those who follow
satan fearless and bold and never hesitate to state what THEY believe, while
followers of Christ are afraid and timid and will hold their tongue instead
of speaking out? WE HAVE THE TRUTH!!! GOD IS REAL!!! THE BIBLE IS THE
ABSOLUTE TRUTH WE CAN STAKE OUR ETERNAL SOULS ON!!! JESUS IS THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE AND NOBODY COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THRU HIM!!! Either you believe it or you don’t, and if you believe it, have the guts to DECLARE IT!!!!

I love you and care about you so much. A newspaper reporter recently wrote,
“Bill Keller says what many feel and would like to say, but simply don’t
have the nerve to or the platform.” I agree with that. I understand
everyone is not called to the marketplace to battle with men like Howard
Stern, the homosexual activists, those who promote the false religion of
Islam, those who aggressively promote atheism, members of the cults like
the Mormons, the JW’s, the Scientologists, the Masons, Kabbala, and others.
We all have our calling. God has called me to the front lines to battle
these tools of satan with His Truth and the eternal hope we have in a
personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Listen, I could have easily built a huge Christian organization over these
past years. I could have a staff of hundreds, a new glass building, a new
Gulfstream, mansions, new luxury cars. All I had to do was play the same
politically correct game everyone else is playing, target my message to
those who I know will agree with it, don’t offend people by warning them
they will die and go to hell without Jesus, compromise the absolutes of the
Bible when it makes good business sense, and play the political games to be
in the right circles. Trust me my friend, I could easily do ALL of that and
build a nice personal empire. BUT I AM NOT HERE TO BUILD MY KINGDOM, BUT
GOD’S. THIS ISN’T ABOUT BILL KELLER, IT IS ABOUT THE ETERNAL SOULS OF MEN.

John the Baptist preached in the wilderness, I preach out of the back of a
used car lot. I am shunned by the religious establishment of the day
because I refuse to play their games. Those who have become “leaders” by
virtue of their building big organizations simply dismiss me as some fringe
loudmouth in Florida who doesn’t get it. No, I do get it. I don’t get
these “men of God” whose motivation is the mammon and temporary pleasures
and power of this world rather than the souls of men. But that is OK since
when I take my last breath, it won’t be any of those men who I will stand
before, it will be God Himself! When I lay my head down for the few hours
of sleep I get each night, it is God who I have to be at peace with.

I challenge you today. For those who love the Lord and have committed your
life to Him, GET BUSY SERVING HIM! Now more than ever God needs His
children busy about His business. I know we have all been called to serve
Him in different ways. Some God has blessed with great positions in the
business community, others with lots of resources. I can only ask you to
pray about helping me. I am willing to put my life literally on the line
for the Gospel, to take His Truth to the heart of where satan operates in
the secular TV arena as well as aggressively and interactively on the
Internet. I have nothing but my faith. My wife and I live month to month
by the grace of God. I am only able to bring God’s message of hope and
everlasting life through Jesus because of the prayers and sacrifice of so
many friends like yourself. So while you pray about how you can serve the
Lord each day, also pray about how you can help me as we take our bold and
visible stand for Christ in the marketplace each day. Together, we have, we
are, and we will continue, to make an impact for Christ!!!

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

How Do I Know The Will Of God For My Life?

Posted by Job on November 25, 2007

http://www.liveprayer.com/signup.cfm

One of the most frequent questions
people always ask, is how do I know what the will of God is for my life?
Much of the difficulty in determining what God’s will is for our life is
trying to separate our wants and desires from God’s wants and desires. This
is probably one of the most difficult issues you will ever deal with in your
walk with the Lord and I just want to give you some basics to help you in
not trying to conform God to your will, but for you to conform to His will.

The only way you can begin to understand what God’s will is for your life is
to be in a daily, intimate, surrendered relationship with Him. It is
critical that you are spending time with the Lord every day through His
Word, through prayer, and that quiet time where it is just you and the Lord
in fellowship. That is the only way we can learn to hear His voice so that
over time we are able to discern whether it is God speaking or simply
ourselves. I can’t begin to emphasize enough how important it is to take the
time each day to get alone with God and have that time of fellowship. You
only begin to know God’s will for your life when you really know God.

The key is you have to be at a place in your life where you are fully
surrendered to the Lord. You need to be able to say, “Lord, wherever you
want me to go, whatever you want me to do, I am completely yours.” The
biggest hurdle to overcome in following God’s will for our life is the fear
of the unknown. What is my life going to be like if I follow God? How will
my life be different if I really let God have His way? Trust me, He loves
you, cares about you, and only wants the best for you. God wants to bless
you and those blessings are found as we faithfully and obediently follow
Him.

The more we listen to God’s voice, the more we obey and follow His voice,
the less time we spend trying to force God to follow what we want to do, and
the more time we spend trying to follow what God wants us to do. As we grow
and mature in our relationship with the Lord, we find ourselves more
concerned with what God is asking us to do and we slowly begin to make His
desires our desires. My friend, THAT is the time when you find that special
place almost impossible to put into words. That place where your desires
have become God’s desires. It is clearly no longer your will that you seek
but it is His will.

I love you and care about you so much. I will be praying for you that you
will get serious about finding and living in God’s perfect will each day. It
is the only way we truly know the peace, joy, and abundance of this life. In
His will, we can do all things because it is not us, it is Him. Outside of
His will, we can do nothing. Nothing works or makes sense. Take some time
alone with the Lord today and begin to pray in earnest for God to help you
begin to quit trying to conform Him to your will, but for you to conform to
His will!

Can One Reject Jesus Christ And Still Be Saved?

Posted by Job on November 15, 2007

liveprayer.com/signup.cfm

Can you reject faith in Jesus Christ and still get to Heaven? I’m 49 years
old, the same age as Donny Osmond. He is actually 2 months older than I am.
I grew up enjoying the music of the Osmond’s, the Donny and Marie Show, and
saw them perform live numerous times over the years. You would be hard
pressed to find a more wholesome, All-American family (unless it is the
family of Mitt Romney) even though they have all experienced the ups and
downs of life everyone faces along this journey. They have always openly
talked about “God” and their “faith,” so it is very difficult to understand
how such wonderful people could ever end up in a horrible place like hell, a
place of eternal punishment. Most certainly if there was ever a family that
would be all reunited one day in Heaven it is the Osmonds, unless you
believe the Bible!

I am dealing with this issue today since I was alarmed at the number of
emails I received last week when the patriarch of the Osmond family, George
Osmond, died. Donny said that his Mom and Dad were “having a great reunion”
and that because of his family’s faith, he knows that “they will all be
together again”. I stated that George Osmond and his wife were having a
reunion, in hell, since he had chosen to reject the Truth and follow the
lies of Joseph Smith and the Mormon cult. George Osmond made the choice to
reject the Jesus of the Bible for the jesus of the Mormon cult, and
according to the Bible, he died in his sins and is forever in separated from
God in hell.

Some people were upset that I dared to declare this man was in hell. Many
who emailed claimed to be Bible-believing Christians and told me that God
would understand if George Osmond was following the false teachings of the
Mormon cult. They said “he was a good man who had a good heart.” PEOPLE
GET ON ME ALL THE TIME FOR HAMMERING A GUY LIKE OSTEEN AND OTHERS WHO WATER
DOWN THE GOSPEL TO BE LIKED BY EVERYONE AND SELL MORE BOOKS. MAYBE NOW YOU
CAN UNDERSTAND WHY I DO IT! You have too many gutless pastors in cold
churches dispensing cheap grace and this damnable lie from hell that leads
people to believe everyone will make it to Heaven if they try hard enough,
since a loving God truly wouldn’t send anyone to hell. THAT IS NOT WHAT THE
BIBLE SAYS OR TEACHES!

Let me clarify two critical points. First, God has never sent anyone to
hell. Hell was created for satan and the fallen angels who followed him,
not for man. Man was NEVER intended to end up in this place of eternal
torment and punishment. THE ONLY WAY A MAN ENDS UP IN HELL FOR ETERNITY IS
BECAUSE THEY CHOOSE TO GO THERE! The second is if in the last moment of
George Osmond’s life before he took his last breath he could have renounced
the lies of the Mormon cult and embraced faith in the Jesus of the Bible and
been saved. The Bible talks about the hearts of men who have rejected the
Truth being so hard, that even in the face of God’s wrath they shook their
fist at Him and cursed Him. While theologically possible, George Osmond was
a temple Mormon who had spent his life believing, living, and teaching the
lies of Smith. No doubt upon his death he was expecting to be exalted to
god-status and inherit his own planet. Sadly, he learned the truth and
instead of women waiting to have sex with him, was satan welcoming him to
the eternal flames of hell!

Jesus said He was the ONLY way to the Father. John 3:16 says that
“whosoever believeth in Him,” meaning Jesus, will not what, PERISH, but
have everlasting life. The Lord warned, “And fear not them which kill the
body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able
to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Paul spoke over and over of the
false shepherds and prophets, of following “a different Gospel.” Why? You
can’t simply reject the Truth of God’s Word and choose to believe in a false
gospel, do your best to live what the world considers a good life as you
follow those false beliefs, die, and expect to be in Heaven. Why? SIN MY
FRIEND! The Bible proclaims that there is NONE GOOD, NO NOT ONE and that
ALL have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory. It is our sin that
separates us from a Holy and Righteous God!

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! Why? THEIR SIN! Man sees the outside, God sees their
heart!

However, God loved his fallen creation so much that He made a way for man to
be reconciled back into an everlasting relationship with His Creator. That
is why He sent Jesus to die as the one-time perfect sacrifice for the sins
of all mankind. The Bible proclaims that there is only one name by which
men are saved, the name of Jesus. It was Jesus and nobody else who died for
your sins and that is why it is faith in Jesus and nobody else who can save
your wretched soul. 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. You
can’t follow the false beliefs of the cults and false religions who have
rejected the Truth and get to God. The ONLY way back to God is by putting
your faith and trust in the Jesus Christ of the Bible. It is only faith in
Jesus Christ that washes away our sins to allow us to be eternally with God
our Creator.

I love you and care about you so much. Is it cold hearted and insensitive
to declare George Osmond is forever in hell? Maybe. The Truth often is
hard for most to handle. How cold is it for the Osmonds to be on Oprah
lying to people about their father being in Heaven and leading people to
think that you can believe whatever fantasies you want and try to live a
good life by the world’s standards and end up in Heaven? That is OK, I’ll
take the heat for being what some think is cold and callous in order to save
even one soul from the flames of hell. Satan is a very real enemy and he
will do whatever it takes to lead men’s souls to hell. He counts on those
who know the Truth to be too afraid to speak up and uses people like the
Osmond Family to carry a message to the masses that is helping to lead the
souls of unsuspecting men to eternal punishment.

People accuse me daily of hating Mitt Romney. I don’t even know Mitt
Romney. I hate the fact he lies to people about his beliefs and deceives
people into thinking he is a Christian when he is not. I hate the fact that
if he gets elected President, his influence will lead a huge number of
people to seek out the Mormon cult, get lost in their false beliefs, and die
and go to hell. I DO hate satan and the fact ever day he is successful in
helping people choose to spend all eternity in the eternal punishment of
hell when God clearly states it is His desire for all to come to repentant
and that none be lost. While others are busy playing games of power and
influence and money, I am staying focused on battling with satan for the
eternal souls of men. Nothing else matters to me.

Do you want to know how far from God and His Truth we have come as a nation
and people? Ask 10 people randomly at church next Sunday if you can reject
faith in Jesus Christ and still somehow make it to Heaven? Even from those
who are in church and should at least know the basic truths of the Bible,
you will get 50% who tell you yes. This is the result of weak pastors,
people being Biblically illiterate, Christian leaders focused on earthly
power and treasures rather than the souls of men, the bold lies of the world
being told long enough and loud enough that the masses accept the lie for
the truth, and a very real enemy of our soul who is working hard 24/7 to
lead men to hell.

THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO BE SAVED AND ONE WAY TO HEAVEN AND THAT IS BY FAITH
IN THE JESUS OF THE BIBLE. THERE ARE NO OTHER ROADS TO GOD AND NO OTHER
PLANS OF SALVATION!!! If you have never given your heart and life to Jesus
by faith and the Holy Spirit is speaking to you today, pray, ask God to open
your heart to the Truth and watch this video clip. Please share it with
everyone you know who is not saved. http://www.liveprayer.com/altarcall.cfm

God Himself Wants To Use Your Life

Posted by Job on November 15, 2007

liveprayer.com/signup.cfm

A word of encouragement for you today. As you sit in your home, your office,
or wherever you read the Daily Devotional, I want to give you a word of
encouragement today. God wants to use your life for His glory! Think about
this for a moment. The God who created the heavens and earth, the God who
created you and me in His image, GOD HIMSELF, wants to use YOUR LIFE! I
don’t know about you but just the thought blows me away. The fact that THE
GOD wants to use me is mind boggling. It is true, God wants to use your
life!!!

I love reading the Biblical accounts when God calls a person to serve Him.
Some say no, some obediently follow, and others make excuses why they aren’t
adequate. The reality is, all men are born to serve and glorify God their
Creator with their lives. That is the universal purpose for all men. So we
shouldn’t be shocked or surprised when God calls us, since He is only asking
us to do what we were created for, to serve Him!

Apart from our universal purpose to serve and glorify the Lord with our
lives, God calls each of us to do that in unique ways. He gives each of us
special gifts and talents in order to be able to serve Him in the specific
area He calls us to serve. Most people understand their universal purpose in
life is to serve God, but are not very clear what God is specifically
calling them to do with their life. This is another area where your daily,
intimate, personal walk with the Lord becomes so important.

The closer we are to God, the better we “hear” God, the better we understand
God, the easier it is for us to find those areas of service He is calling us
to. Never forget the passions you have, what you enjoy doing, what gets you
excited, exist because that is how God made you. In serving the Lord, you
should find ways to serve that incorporate the things you enjoy and are
passionate about in this life. Serving God is not supposed to be something
that you dread but something that you look forward to and enjoy!

Remember that a couple of the big ways God speaks to us is through other
people and through our circumstances. Nothing that happens in your life is
an accident or a coincidence. God brings people into our life, speaks to us
through other people, God allows things to happen to us, He opens and closes
doors in our lives, all to guide us where He wants us to be and doing the
things He wants us to be doing. That is why we need to be tuned in to what
God may be saying to us through others and through our circumstances. Often
it is God speaking to us and trying to guide us where He wants us to be.

In serving God, don’t be misled that this means doing something on a grand
scale or what the world would notice because it was something so visible and
affecting so many people. I would guess that 99.9% of the people who have
served the Lord over the ages were people whose name the world never knew.
Most people know who Paul is, and Billy Graham, and many of the world-renown
men and women of God who have made an impact on millions with their lives.
But in the eyes of God, the faithful service of someone carrying groceries
to a poor family, someone using their gift of music in their local church,
someone visiting those in the prisons and nursing homes, someone who holds a
Bible study at their job, someone who passes out tracts, is just as
important as someone whose name is known by the masses.

You don’t need to stand in a pulpit and preach to thousands, or write books
read by millions, or reach nations on TV or radio, or operate an
Internet./TV ministry reaching millions of people worldwide daily to serve
the Lord. We are ALL called to serve the Lord, each in our own special and
unique way, and nobody’s service is more important than someone else’s. What
IS important is that we are faithful and obedient to serve the Lord to the
best of our ability. Never forget, it is our heart that God sees and is
concerned about.

I love you and care about you so much. My word of encouragement for you
today is that God, yes THE God, has called you to serve Him. I want to
encourage you that serving the Lord is not only the universal purpose of
life we all share, but as a follower of Jesus Christ something we are
commanded to do. My challenge to you today is to open your heart and seek
the Lord and let HIM guide you to those areas of service He has called you
to. Each of us are special and unique, with special and unique gifts and
talents, so we have all been called to serve our Lord in different ways.

Never forget that we live in a world that has rejected God, the Truth of His
Word, and Jesus. It is to this lost and hurting world that God has called us
to service. As each son and daughter of the Lord answers that call to
service, we are being the salt of the earth and the light to this world
Jesus has called us to be. It is through our service to the Lord that this
lost world sees Jesus in us and has a desire to get to know Him. The Bible
says that we are His ambassadors. It is in our service that we bring the
hope and love of Jesus Christ to the lost and hurting in our world each day.

I will be praying for you. I pray today that God will move on your heart and
help you to continue serving Him with even more conviction and enthusiasm.
If you have not been doing all you should in serving the Lord, let this word
today motivate you and challenge you to follow Him and as He guides you in
your service. He will open and close doors, speak to you through others,
cause circumstances to occur in your life to show you the things that you
should be doing for Him. Don’t forget, service is not an option it is a
commandment from our Lord.

In these days when the world preaches and teaches that your success is
judged by how many people serve you, let me remind you that in God’s eyes,
your success in this life is measured by how many people you serve!!!

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

The Difference: Women Who Follow Christ Versus Those Of False Religions

Posted by Job on November 13, 2007

liveprayer.com/signup.cfm


The difference between the roles of women who follow Christ, versus women
who follow the Mormon cult or the false religion of Islam. I have to laugh
when I hear people who are clearly Biblically illiterate state the Bible
demeans women, that God’s Word teaches women are inferior to men, or that
Paul was a male chauvinist. Paul was a revolutionary in his day, teaching
God’s Word that men and women were equal when in his culture women were
little more than property. People who make such statements are 100% wrong
about what the Bible teaches regarding women and their roles. Let me say
right up front that according to God’s Word a man and a woman are 100%
equal, they simply have different roles to play.

In God’s account of creation found in the first chapter of Genesis, the
Bible states, “And God created man in His own image, in the image of God He
created him; male and female He created them.” Paul, in writing to the
church at Galatia states, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither
bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in
Christ Jesus.” The Bible CLEARLY and without any question teaches that God
created men and women as equals. The only difference is in the specific
roles each has been assigned.

This is NOT SO in many cults and false religions, specifically in the Mormon
cult and the false religion of Islam. I guess if a person was operating in
the flesh, it is understandable why a man would buy into the lies of Joey
Smith and his Mormon cult, or the false religion of Islam dreamed up by
Mohammed 1400 years ago. Both of these satanically inspired “religions”
that have lead millions of souls to hell, with literally over a billion more
alive today who are on that conveyor belt to eternal punishment for
believing their lies, are designed for and geared towards men. Women are
less than men in every way in both the Mormon cult and the false religion of
Islam.

Again, I guess I see why some men would be attracted to these false beliefs.
After all, it sounds nice that you die and become the god of your own planet
with an unlimited number of women waiting to have sex with you to create
“spirit babies” as the Mormon cult teaches, or that a Muslim man can die and
go to “paradise” where some ridiculous number of virgins are waiting to have
sex with him. The Bible actually teaches that there will be no marriage in
Heaven, no physical bodies which of course means no sex. Again, satan the
father of lies has perverted God’s wonderful gift of sex designed for a
husband and wife in this life and used it as a motivation for men to follow
a false faith that will lead their souls to hell.

Note: I can only imagine the sheer horror of those who followed the lies of
Smith, when upon their death they realized as they stood before God their
Creator that they were not and never would be a “god,” and instead of a
planet full of women there were the eternal flames and torment of hell. No
doubt, those who followed the lies of Mohammed also had to be shocked when
they died and instead of virgins waiting to have sex with them, was satan
welcoming them to a place of eternal punishment.

Something I have never been able to understand is why a woman would want
anything to do with either the Mormon cult or the false religion of Islam.
In both of these false beliefs woman are unequal to men and really little
more than the property of men, no different than a slave. The Mormon
position on women has changed little since the early 1800’s, when the
official view was that “woman’s primary place is in the home, where she is
to rear children and abide by the righteous counsel of her husband”
(McConkie 844). This attitude, coupled with the doctrine of polygamy and the
absolute power claimed by the men of the church, created a legacy of
profound sexism which modern Mormonism continues to foster..

Mormonism has created an ingenious system of oppression, in which opposition
towards men is tantamount to arguing with God. At age twelve, boys become
members of the Aaronic, or lesser priesthood, and at nineteen become
eligible for the Melchezedek, or higher priesthood. Members of either
priesthood are higher authorities on everything than are non-members. Women
are, of course, excluded from the priesthood. This practice in effect says
that a woman’s prepubescent son is more qualified to advise her than she is
to advise him.

The most notorious example of Mormon treatment of women is, of course, the
practice of polygamy. Polygamous marriage is basically essential to Mormon
theology. Mormon Doctrine states that God was once a human man, and “He is
now a glorified, resurrected Personage having a tangible body of flesh and
bones” (250). As a matter of fact, “all gods first existed as spirits, came
to an earth to receive bodies, and then, after having passed through a
period of probation on the aforesaid earth, were advanced to the exalted
position they now enjoy” (Hoekema 38). After death, a good Mormon man who
has followed a few certain rules is catapulted to this same status and
receives his own planet to populate and rule over (Fife 103). To receive
this honor, a man must be “married for eternity” in the Mormon temple. This
special marriage is binding after death as well as until it.

“Celestial” marriage, as this eternal marriage is often called, is essential
for Mormon women. Without being celestially married to a holder of the
priesthood, a woman cannot be “saved” (Green 154). In the temple marriage
ceremony, women are given secret names known only to their husbands, for
identification purposes, so their husbands can pull them through to “the
other side” after death. After death, while their husbands are creating and
ruling over planets, the women have the questionable honor of bearing his
“spirit children” for eternity. Because of the doctrine of celestial
marriage, it is very difficult for Mormon women to obtain divorces in the
church. Women are told that “divorce is usually the result of one or both
not living the gospel”, and that a woman who wants a divorce is “untrue to
the covenants she has made in the house of the Lord” A Mormon woman has
the joy of looking forward to an eternity of being pregnant!

As for women who are part of the false religion of Islam, they are really
little more than slaves and the “property of their husband.” In Islam,
woman are not equal to men in any way. The Qur’an says that the testimony
of a woman is not equal to that of a man. It says that the testimony of two
women is required to be equal to the testimony of one man. Call in two male
witnesses from among you, but if two men cannot be found, then one man and
two women whom you judge fit to act as witnesses. (Qur’an 2:282 Dawood)
Interestingly, Islam teaches the vast majority of those in hell are women.
Ibn Abbas reported that Allah’s Messenger said: I had a chance to look into
paradise and I found that majority of the people was poor and I looked into
the Fire and there I found the majority constituted by women. (Muslim, vol.
4, hadith 6597, p. 1432).

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

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

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

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

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

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

Have You Made The Most Important Decision Of Your Life?

Posted by Job on November 12, 2007

http://liveprayer.com/signup.cfm


HAVE YOU MADE THE DECISION TO ACCEPT JESUS? You will make many big decisions throughout your life. Where you will go to college, what career you will
have, who you will marry, having children, are just a few. However, there is
no decision that you will make during your life greater than where you will
spend eternity when this brief life is over.

The Bible teaches us that tomorrow is promised to none of us and that each
day is a gift from God. When you die, your body will go back to the dust of
the earth as God mandated, but your soul, the part of man made in God’s
image is eternal. Where your soul spends eternity is a choice each
individual who lives will make during their life. It is God’s desire that
ALL come to repentance and none be lost. He sent His Son Jesus to die for
the sins of all mankind so that thru faith in Jesus man could be reconciled
back to God and have the assurance of everlasting life with his Creator.

My friend, nobody who is honest will dispute that they will die one day, and
nobody who is honest will dispute they commit sin. We ALL sin and fall short
of God’s glory and it is our sin that separates us from a holy God. GOD
LOVES YOU! He is willing to forgive you of your sins if you will simply ask
Him. There is nothing you have done in your life that God won’t forgive you
for if you ask Him. He does not want to see your soul perish for eternity,
but wants you to spend your eternity with Him.

Please, take a few moments, the most important few moments you will ever
spend and read the following few paragraphs. These words can literally
change you for all eternity. I am praying for you!

For God so loved the world, HE GAVE. Good Friday is the day that we
celebrate one of the greatest events in human history. We celebrate that day
the death of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, God’s gift to the world. It
is truly a day of rejoicing. Because of this gift from God, we can be
forgiven of our sins and reunited with our Creator for eternity. So much of
what I deal with each day in this Devotional is to help you walk through
this short journey here on earth victoriously and productively. But we must
never forget that our time here is very short, and there is an eternity
waiting for us when this journey is completed.

I want to focus for just a minute on that most special day, to that split
second when our life on this earth is finished and we are launched into
eternity. Do you have the assurance this very moment that when your life is
complete, your eternity is going to be spent in Heaven with God your
Creator?

If the answer to that question is anything but a resounding YES, then let me
just share this simple truth with you. You see, our God, our Creator so
loved this world, so loved His creation, that He sent His Son, His only Son
to be part of this world. Jesus had one mission in this life. It wasn’t to
be a great teacher, though He was a great teacher. It wasn’t to be a great
prophet, though He was a great prophet. It wasn’t to be a great miracle
worker, though He did work many great miracles. No my friend, Jesus came to
this world to perform only one job…to die.

You see, the reason it was vital for Jesus to be immaculately conceived by
the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin was so that He was not infested with
the same problem you and I are born into this life with, sin. Otherwise, the
best He could have done was to die for His own sins. Jesus lived on this
earth for some 33 years before it was time to complete His work. That work
was finished on a cross on the hill called Calvary where He hung, and then
died as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of this world. That is why,
whosoever believes in Jesus, shall not perish, but have everlasting life!

Believing in Jesus is the only way to be saved because it was Jesus who died
for our sins. There are no other ways to be saved, no other roads to God,
there are no other plans of salvation!!! This is God’s one and only plan to
reconcile His fallen creation back to Himself. This is the only way that you
can escape eternity apart from the God who created you in His own image. It
is through His grace and by your faith in Jesus Christ!

There are many incredible mysteries in the Bible. There are many doctrinal
issues that will never be fully understood until we are in Heaven. But God
made the most important decision of this life very easy and simple to
understand. He gave every one the same opportunity to have their sins washed
away and be assured of an eternity in Heaven. That is why we celebrate Good
Friday. That is why we put our faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

The most important decision you will make in this life is not who you will
marry, or where you will live, or what kind of job you will have. The most
important decision you will make in this life is to accept Jesus Christ as
your personal Lord and Savior. If you have not done that yet, the Bible says
that TODAY is the day of salvation. I would invite you to go to,
http://www.liveprayer.com/bdy_salvatn.cfm. Pray to ask God to open your
heart, read the words, pray the prayer, and accept today God’s gift to you,
the gift of everlasting life through His son Jesus.

I love you and care about you deeply. For those of you who already know
Christ as your Savior, I would encourage you to forward this email to
someone that you know who is lost and without hope today. What better
present to give someone than the opportunity to know Jesus as their Savior
and God’s free gift of everlasting life. I pray that you will take time
today to focus on the gift that God has given to us in His Son Jesus. He
gave His very best gift to us, which is why I will continue to encourage you
each day to give your very best to Him.

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

Christianity Is Now Seen As Most Extreme Religion

Posted by Job on November 12, 2007

TUESDAY NIGHT, I WAS PART OF AN HOUR-LONG TV PROGRAM THAT AIRS ON HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY (TAMPA, FL) COMMUNITY ACCESS TELEVISION. ON THE PROGRAM WITH ME WAS THE INFAMOUS TAMPA STRIP CLUB OWNER AND AVOWED ATHEIST JOE REDNER (my note: Joe Redner is a crony of Paula and Randy White) AND THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE TAMPA CHAPTER OF CAIR, AHMED BEDIER. BEDIER WAS THE MAN LEADING THE CHARGE TO INTIMIDATE CBS INTO CANCELING THE LONG RUNNING LIVEPRAYER LATE NIGHT PROGRAM TO SILENCE ME FROM TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT THE FALSE RELIGION OF ISLAM. http://www.liveprayer.com/tbt1.cfm

MANY ASKED WHAT WOULD BE GAINED BY GOING ON A COMMUNITY ACCESS TELEVISION PROGRAM THAT ONLY A HANDFUL OF PEOPLE WATCH WITH TWO MEN WHO DESPISE ME AND LIVE THEIR LIVES REJECTING THE TRUTH OF THE BIBLE AND FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST. IN ADDITION TO PLANTING SEEDS IN THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO WOULD BE WATCHING, IT WAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE A STAND FOR GOD’S TRUTH IN THE PUBLIC ARENA THAT MOST CHRISTIANS HAVE ABANDONED AND CONFRONT THE FALSE AND EVIL BELIEFS OF REDNER AND BEDIER. YOU CAN WATCH THE COMPLETE HOUR PROGRAM AT: http://www.liveprayer.com/tbt1.cfm

In 2007, the Christian faith is now seen by most to be “extreme” and a faith that is “against” everything. When I preach in churches or at events, people love that my messages are rarely longer than 20-30 minutes. I have one key topic, I hone in on it, hit it hard, and than challenge the listeners. However, today’s topic is an issue I could pull a Paul and preach about all night long. In this nation, the Christian faith is now seen as “extreme.” We are best known for being a faith that is “against” everything. This has been an effective way the non-believing world has found to intimidate Believers into silence and keep them out of the marketplace. Sadly it has worked!

Why are we called extreme? We believe the Bible to be God’s inspired, inerrant Word representing Absolute Truth and our final authority in all matters. Based on God’s Word that it is the ONLY Truth, it makes all of the other religions, belief systems and philosophies false. Based on God’s Word, it means those who deny faith in Jesus Christ will go to hell. I’m not the one who calls all of the other religions and philosophies in the world false, God is! I’m not the one who has determined who will go to Heaven and hell, God already did!

I get so sick and tired of hearing nonbelievers, and INFURIATED when I hear Believers say, “Who are you to call someone’s religion false? Who are you to tell someone that they will be going to hell?” I DIDN’T, GOD DID! IT IS IN THE BIBLE! EITHER WHAT GOD SAID IS TRUE OR IT ISN’T. THE BIBLE SAYS THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUTH, GOD’S! THE BIBLE SAYS THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO BE SAVED, FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST! THAT MEANS THE OTHER RELIGIONS AND PHILOSOPHIES ARE A LIE AND THAT ANYONE WHO DOES NOT ACCEPT CHRIST BY FAITH WILL DIE AND GO TO HELL! GOD SAID IT, NOT BILL KELLER!

We are also seen by the nonbelieving world around us as the faith who is against everything. We are against homosexuality. We are against people living together outside of marriage. We are against a woman being able to choose to kill her baby. We are against this and against that. Again, it is not us that is against these things, it is God! We didn’t dream up a list of things to be against, they come from the pages of the Bible! We are simply taking a stand against the things God is against and calls sin in the Bible.

Because this world we live in has rejected God, the Truth of the Bible, and faith in Jesus Christ, they have been successful in labeling Christians as extreme. In the United States just 50 years ago, Christianity was considered mainstream. In a single generation it has gone from being mainstream to extreme. It is a faith that has gone from being loved to reviled, accepted to ridiculed. How did that happen? Gutless and compromised spiritual leaders! The flock is only as good as their shepherd. There are too many pastors and those God called to spiritual leadership who have compromised their calling by denying the Truth of the Bible or by getting caught up in building their own kingdom instead of God’s Kingdom.

The liberal theology that has crept into the church over the past 40 years is why you now have so-called churches condoning and glorifying gross sins like homosexuality and abortion. That can only happen when you deny the Truth of the Bible like so many churches now do. The heart of the church is God’s Word, and when you deny what the Bible truly is, that church is no better than the local strip club! You also have too many pastors and leaders who are more worried about the temporal pleasures of this world than the eternal work of the Kingdom. Gutless pastors who proudly proclaim on nationwide television they don’t preach about sin. Supposed men of God who are more worried about selling books than saving souls. Men and women of God who rather than taking the Gospel to the world that needs it, hide in the “Christian trough” preaching to the choir so they can buy a new private jet, a 5th mansion, build bigger buildings!

So it is no wonder why so many men and women who know the Lord go to work, go to school, play sports, are involved in different hobbies, face people every day out in the marketplace, and will NEVER even admit to being a Christian, let alone take a stand for Christ and the Truth of the Bible! They are petrified at being called intolerant, hateful, extreme, a bigot, and ridiculed, scorned, and abused for being a follower of Christ and standing up for the Truth of God’s Word in a group of non-believers. So they simply shut up, INTIMIDATED INTO SILENCE! Why are sinners who serve satan so bold and vocal in declaring their lies while the children of God who possess the only Truth there is sit back in silence???

Is there a price to pay for speaking up for Christ? Absolutely!!! The cold hard reality is that few pastors and very few Christians are willing to pay that price. So why are we surprised we now live in a nation that mocks our faith, ridicules us for our beliefs, and continues to do everything they can to eliminate God, the Bible, and our Lord from even being mentioned in the public square! Look at what happened to Paul for taking his stand for the Lord. He was nearly killed many times before being martyred. Thrown in jail. Despised and hated everywhere he went. HE DIDN’T CARE! HE UNDERSTOOD IT WASN’T HIM THEY HATED, IT WAS CHRIST. Look at the Old Testament prophets. Same thing. The people hated them because of the message they delivered from God. Look at Steven in Acts 7. Literally stoned to death for simply declaring the Gospel. How many countless men and women over the ages have literally died for their faith!

Is there a price to pay for speaking up? Yes and the simple fact is, most won’t pay it even though Jesus paid it all for them!!!

That was what the program Tuesday night was about. Speaking up for the Truth. As I sat between Redner and Bedier, separated by only a few inches, I made this observation. On my left was Redner, simply an empty shell. His life is tied up in being Joe Redner, the owner of a popular Tampa strip club and a self-professed anarchist and atheist. He is truly a sad man who has adopted these lies from hell to justify selling women and in the process, has literally sold his soul to satan. An empty shell with a hard heart that will die and burn in hell unless that granite-hard heart is softened and he turns to Jesus.

There is really nothing more to say about Redner. As you will hear on the program, he is simply a typical fool who says there is no God, of course has rejected the Bible, and does not believe in Jesus as his Savior. We have dealt with atheism often. All I can do is ask you to pray for Joe. Jesus died for his sins just like he died for yours and mine. I pray daily and I know many in this area do, that Joe will come to know Jesus. With God, all things are possible.

On my right was Bedier, a man who is the epitome of pure evil. I can say without any hesitation that if this man could get away with it, he would take a sword, cut off my head, never even blink or think twice about it, and go eat dinner. I do pray for Bedier each day. Even though I have no doubt this man would like to see me dead, God loves him and wants to see him repent and turn from this false religion and to faith in Christ. The Bible says we are to pray for our enemies, to love them, and while that is not possible in the flesh it is possible in the strength God can give us. So please pray for this man to come to know Jesus as his personal savior.

Ahmed Bedier is an advocate for a false religion of hate and death that is empowered by satan himself. He calls me a bigot and what I say hate speech because I have the audacity to tell people the truth about the false religion of Islam. He takes great offense to the fact I cite from the very writings of Islam that Mohammed was a murdering pedophile. When I asked him numerous times to deny that he wasn’t, he went into a long diatribe about how he was the head of state and in that capacity he did kill people He admitted it! He also admitted he took a wife at the age of 6, but added that she may have been 18. The writings of Islam say that this girl was 6 when he married her and 9 when he had sex with her to consummate the marriage.

You will see as the program continues, Bedier’s personal attacks on me became more intense. Saying often I was a convicted felon, which of course I pointed out was a great 20-year old story of God’s grace that over 30 million people worldwide have heard over the past 2 decades. He of course used the same tired stereotypes that I only do this for money. He said I was not only Islamophobic, but an anti-Semite for telling Jews they will go to hell without Jesus, and anti-Mormon for telling Mormons they are part of a satanic cult. He is the typical bully who is used to people being intimidated and backing down, not fighting back!

That is my message to you today! Don’t let these bullies of the world, the homosexuals, the Muslims, the Mormons, the atheists, or anyone else, intimidate you into silence! FIGHT BACK! Why are they allowed to speak and we aren’t? Why do you think you have airports every day adding footbaths to accommodate Muslims who can’t wash their feet and pray at home, but have to do that at the airport now! Why do you think we will be having many school NOT celebrating Christmas because it offends Muslims and other false religions and those who deny God even exists? GUTLESS PASTORS, GUTLESS CHRISTIANS WHO HAVE BEEN BULLIED AND INTIMIDATED INTO SILENCE!!!

I love you an care about you so much. They took a few live calls on the program and you will hear one that epitomized why I was there and what I am sharing with you today. The woman clamed to be a Christian and was lambasting me for being such a poor representative of Christ. She said she had many friends who where Muslims. I asked her if she had loved her friend enough to tell them they would die and go to hell without Jesus. She said that was not for her to decide. She is right, it isn’t up to her or me or you, it is up to God. This just in, HE ALREADY DID! IT IS IN THE BOOK! YOU EITHER BELIEVE THE BIBLE OR YOU DON’T! IF YOU ARE A FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST, YOU ARE AUTOMATICALLY A FOLLOWER OF THE BIBLE!!!

The other comment I hear often and it was brought up over and over on the program, is that I am not acting like Jesus. They say Jesus would never tell people they were gong to hell. Really? I LOVE people who have rejected Jesus, don’t even believe Jesus is who He is, but love to use Jesus as their example. I reminded them of the fact it was for telling the Truth about who He was that Jesus was put to death. It was Jesus who said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life, and NOBODY comes to the Father but through me.” That pretty much eliminates all of the false religions and cults in the world and means the ONLY way to be saved is through faith in Jesus Christ, if you believe what Jesus said! I also believe Jesus in speaking to Nicodemus in John Chapter 3 talked about people NOT PERISHING but have everlasting life if they believed in Him!

JESUS LOVED PEOPLE ENOUGH TO TELL THEM THE TRUTH ABOUT THEIR ETERNAL SOULS, AND IF YOU REALLY WANT TO BE LIKE JESUS, YOU WILL LOVE PEOPLE ENOUGH TO TELL THEM THE TRUTH THAT THEY WILL DIE AND GO TO HELL FOR ALL ETERNITY UNLESS THEY ACCEPT HIM INTO THEIR HEARTS AND LIVES BY FAITH!

I want to challenge you and encourage you today to take some time and pray. Pray and ask God how you can be more bold in sharing your faith with others. Pray and ask God to give you the opportunities to take a real stand for Him and for His Truth in the midst of this unbelieving world. The reason we see unbridled sin loose in our world today is that those who know the Lord and His Truth have been intimidated into silence and WE have allowed sin to take over. Over the course of one generation in this country, we have went from being right to wrong in the eyes of the masses. People no longer hold the Bible to be what it is, God’s Truth for men to live by, and people like myself who go into the public arena to share that Truth now look like the extremists while those who hold to other beliefs look normal. THE TRUTH HAS BEEN EXCHANGED FOR THE LIE EXACTLY AS THE BIBLE SAID WOULD HAPPEN IN THE LAST DAYS!

I know that every day men plot to destroy Liveprayer.com. We have two full-time employees whose full time job is to deal with all of the targeted attacks on our Internet infrastructure designed to wipe us off the Internet. Tools of satan like Bedier have been working tirelessly since day one to eliminate the Liveprayer TV program, and those attempts have only become more focused as the years have gone on. Based on the number of death threats I receive each month, I know there are people out there who want to permanently silence my voice. I have been telling you for over 8 years now that simply sharing the Truth of God’s Word in the public square will one day soon be against the law. This is why I am so passionate about what I do each day. Every day I am alive, every day Liveprayer.com is online, every day we do a TV program, the Truth of the Word is being heard by this lost and hurting generation around the world and people are finding everlasting life through faith in Jesus Christ.

For those who still haven’t figured it out yet, this is not about Bill Keller, it is about Jesus Christ. I don’t do this for money or fame or I would be doing what most the high profile ministers do. I live month to month depending on God to move on people’s hearts to support His work here and my fame is amongst those who hate the Truth and want to see me dead. But that is OK since I know God will watch over me just like He watched over Paul, the Old Testament prophets, and so many others over the years. He will not let anything happen to me until my work here is complete. So my only job each day is to be obedient and faithful to that work. Part of that work is to challenge and motivate you to rise up and take your stand for Christ and let your voice be heard. Jesus said, “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.”

Robert Schuller Is A 33 Degree Mason And More James Dobson Ties To Mormonism!

Posted by Job on November 11, 2007

If this devotional is a blessing to you, maybe you have a friend or family member
that would like to start receiving this daily word. You can forward this to them,
and they can use the following link to subscribe.

http://www.liveprayer.com/signup.cfm

DAILY DEVOTIONAL FRIDAY NOVEMBER 2, 2007
(Romans 16:17, ! Corinthians 5:6-8, 2 Corinthians 6:14-18, Ephesians 5:11)

“Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and
wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?”
2 Corinthians 6:14

The danger of Robert Schuller’s upcoming “Rethink Conference.” Before you
do anything today, you need to get out your Bible and read each of the
anchor verses: Romans 16:17, ! Corinthians 5:6-8, 2 Corinthians 6:14-18,
Ephesians 5:11. I am constantly amazed at Christian leaders who align
themselves with men and women who do NOT know Christ as their Savior, reject
the Bible as the only Truth there is, and embrace the false gods and lies of
this world. The Bible has much to say about our relationships and those
people we align ourselves with. We can never forget that as a man or woman
of God, we are His ambassadors and the ones who have been called to carry
His light and Truth to this dark and fallen world we live in.

This is even a greater issue for those God has called to lead His people
since they will be judged more harshly. Why do these men of God insist on
being part of unholy alliances that require the absolutes of His Word to be
compromised and the Gospel to be watered down? I hear all the time the
excuse that this is what it takes to get things done in a world that rejects
Biblical Truth and Jesus Christ, but I call that a lie from the pits of hell
itself. Paul dealt with the kings and princes of his day. He spoke to the
business leaders and people in the cities he traveled to.

PAUL NEVER COMPROMISED GOD’S TRUTH OR WATERED DOWN THE GOSPEL! PAUL NEVER
FAILED TO TELL MEN THERE IS ONLY ONE NAME BY WHICH MEN ARE SAVED, THE NAME
OF JESUS! But than again, Paul wasn’t looking for earthly fame or fortune,
only to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and see men saved!!!

I’ll never forget when I was researching the Unification cult founded by
Rev. Moon for a Devotional I wrote on that cult years ago. To my HORROR, I
read the names of many key Christian leaders Moon bought off in order to
gain mainstream credibility. Read it for yourselves, and trust me, I don’t
believe many of the things on this website, but I did hundreds of hours of
due diligence to verify that each of these men did have a relationship with
Moon as described! ( http://www.cuttingedge.org/NEWS/n1818.cfm ) You
want to know something very interesting, on this list are many of the same
men who are now backing the member of a satanic cult, Mitt Romney, for
President!!!

I come under attack often for hammering people like Osteen for going on
national TV and never uttering the name of Jesus, or telling people their
only real hope is not in his latest book but in a relationship with Christ,
or telling people they will die and go to hell without Jesus. I get
hammered for calling out my friend Paula White for going on TV and refusing
to admit she is even a Christian, but a “life coach.” I get hammered for
holding accountable Dr. Dobson for being part of the World Congress of
Families that was started and funded by the Mormon cult and has many groups
involved who deny the Bible and Christ.

I get hammered for calling men like Jay Sekulow, Ralph Reed, Mark DeMoss,
Bob Jones III, and others Judases for backing satanic cult member Mitt
Romney for President, worrying more about whatever short term benefits they
gain from their support than the souls of men who will burn in hell for all
eternity if Romney gets elected. So I am sure I will get hammered for this
Devotional today. But this is critical since we are talking about men who
have great followings, and people need to be warned about men who have sold
out the faith!

It is bad enough we have to battle the false religions and cults of the
world, the atheists, and other agents of satan for the souls of men. Sadly,
some of those who do the most damage for the cause of Christ are the ones
who people look up to as “leaders,” who are more worried about building
their kingdom than God’s, more worried about the temporal goals of this
world than the eternal goals of Heaven, more worried about pleasing men than
pleasing God, more concerned about their agenda than God’s agenda, men who
are more concerned with the feelings of the Godless people who fill their
coffers than the eternal souls of the men they have been called to reach for
Christ!!!

ONE OF THE BIGGEST PROBLEMS WE HAVE IN THE CHURCH TODAY ARE MEN AND WOMEN
WHO GOD HAS CALLED TO LEAD THE PEOPLE, WHO HAVE SOLD OUT GOD AND HIS TRUTH
FOR THIS WORLD!!! NOW MORE THAN EVER, AS WE ARE IN THE LAST DAYS, GOD NEEDS
MEN AND WOMEN OF GOD WHO WILL NOT COMPROMISE HIS TRUTH, NOT WATER DOWN THE
GOSPEL, NOT WAVER UNDER THE TEMPTATIONS OF THIS JOURNEY THROUGH LIFE, BUT
HOLD FIRM AND DECLARE TO THIS LOST AND DYING GENERATION THAT GOD’S TRUTH IS
THE ONLY TRUTH AND JESUS IS THE ONLY HOPE FOR MEN NOW AND FOR ALL
ETERNITY!!!

This is nothing new. Paul dealt with it and warned us about this type of
compromise throughout his letters to the churches. In Revelation we read
about the 7 churches and their compromise. I always think back to that
powerful passage of Scripture in Acts 7 as Stephen is boldly declaring the
Gospel to the religious leaders who were so upset with him for telling the
truth that they took him to the edge of the city and stoned him to death.
Please don’t miss this. These weren’t atheists, or heathen, or Jesus
haters, these were the RELIGIOUS LEADERS OF THE DAY! Remember who was
holding their coats as they carried out this act of murder? SAUL OF TARSUS
WHO WOULD SOON BECOME PAUL!!!

I have always had a check in my Spirit about Schuller. First, he is a 33
degree Mason. What else really has to be said after realizing this man is
part of the Masonic cult? He has always had an association with New Age
icons like
Rethink Conference and Neale Donald Walsch, acutally featuring men
like this on his TV program and promoting their Godless books to his
audience. His mentor of course was Norman Vincent Peale, another 33 degree
Mason who was an absolute heretic and taught philosophies in complete
rebellion to the Truth of the Bible.

So it is no surprise that he is the host of this “Rethink Conference” in
January of next year. The purpose of this conference is very vague. But
among the featured speakers are Larry King, Ben Stein, George Foreman, and
Rupert Murdoch. Somehow I don’t expect an altar call is coming from any of
these men. There is also an impressive list of Christian speakers like
Chuck Colson, Bishop Charles Blake, Gary Smalley, Lee Strobel, and others.
Unless it is to simply get paid, why would these men of God be a part of
this circus?

I guess my question for Schuller and the others who will attend is what is
there to rethink? The Gospel? The Bible? Or is this a time to figure out
how to do a better job of compromising the Absolutes of the Bible to
accommodate a non-believing world. Is it a time to figure out how to water
down the Gospel so people won’t be offended? My guess it will be a time to
do all of this plus fill the pockets of Schuller and those who will be
coming to his pulpit to lead people away from God, His Truth, and faith in
Jesus Christ. I have no doubt satan will be cheering on this group each
moment!

I love you and care about you so much. I already know I will lose donors
and subscribers today. That is OK. In the end, it is not a donor or
subscriber I have to answer to, it is God. Listen to me my friend, a man or
woman of God only has one things, their integrity. Once you lose that, you
have nothing left. Who you associate with, who you allow in your life IS
IMPORTANT! A reporter recently asked me what I would do if the Mormon
church sent me a donation for $1 million. I told them I would cash it and
use that money to declare even louder to this world that Mormonism is a cult
that is leading the souls of men to hell. If they wanted to help fund
Liveprayer to lead men away from the lies of Joey Smith and to faith in
Jesus Christ, I’ll take all of their money they want to give me.

A MAN OR WOMAN OF GOD CANNOT BE BOUGHT! OTHERWISE, THEY ARE NO DIFFERENT
THAN JUDAS!

My counsel to you this morning is this. Be aware of who your pastor or
those ministers you follow are associated with. Be aware if they are
preaching more from books other than the Bible. Have great concern if they
don’t end every message or service with an invitation to know Jesus. LINE
UP ALL THEY ARE SAYING WITH GOD’S WORD!!!! There is only one Truth my
friend, and that is what God gave us in the Bible. There is only ONE
GOSPEL, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. There is no way to trick people into
salvation or for someone to get saved by accident. At some point a person
has to accept the responsibility that they are a sinner and have a conscious
desire to ask God to forgive them of their sins, repent, and give their
heart and life to Jesus by faith.

I hate to break this to Dr. Schuller, but his “Rethink Conference” is a very
stupid idea unless it is simply to make everyone who is part of it a nice
chunk of change. There is nothing to rethink. The Word of God is
immutable, it never changes. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is so simple a 3rd
grader can understand it. What Dr. Schuller should be rethinking, is why he
is part of the satanic Masonic cult, why he endorses New Age philosophers,
why he is going to allow men who deny the Bible as Truth and Jesus as Lord
to stand in his pulpit, and why after all of these years on TV he has never
once looked into the cameras and told people that they are a sinner, that
they will die and go to hell without Jesus, and their only hope is to get on
their knees and ask Jesus to forgive them of their sins and invite Him into
their heart and life by faith.

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