Daily Devotional for Tuesday August 3, 2010
How Do You Battle Darkness
How do you battle the darkness? With the LIGHT! I watched in disbelief a few weeks ago as they announced the Muslims would be building a $110 million mosque just a few blocks from where their Muslim brothers perpetrated the greatest act of terror on US soil in history, deliberately flying planes into the World Trade Center towers, knocking them down and killing 3,000 innocent souls in the process. The gall, the arrogance, the audacity of this false relgion of violence, hate, and death to build their temple to satan just blocks from that hallowed ground.
*This new mosque is little more than a memorial to the greatest achievement in the 1400 years of Islam...9/11/2001!
Islam is a 1400-year-old lie from hell, dreamed up by Mohammed after being visited by angels of satan in his sleep. "Allah" is an imaginary god that is actually a black rock and is NOT the God of the Bible! Islam has advanced this false relgion for 1400 years through violence, hatred, and death. The greatest difference between Christianity and Islam is that you are born into Islam, or threatened with death to become a Muslim. You become a Christian by making the free-will choice to accept Jesus Christ by faith!
After I got over being angry, I got on my knees in prayer. I knew God was calling me to do something, but what? After many hours, I realized it would not be another "big event," that just hours after it was over people would be back to their lives and nothing would have been accomplished. We have all been to and seen "big events," and nothing ever changes. No, this had to be more than an event, but an ongoing mission to combat this new evil being constructed near ground zero which would bring people the Truth of God's Word and the love and hope of Jesus Christ.
I am excited to announce today the birth of the "9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero" on Sunday, September 5th. The mission is simple. Have a place at ground zero where people can come to hear the real uncompromised Truth right from God's Word, and find the only true hope there is, faith in Jesus Christ!!! We will combat the lies of this world and Islam with the TRUTH. We will combat the hatred of this world and Islam with LOVE. We will combat the violence of this world and Islam with PEACE. Finally, we will combat eternal death this world and Islam brings with LIFE EVERLASTING!!!
The new internet site for the 9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero is up, and will be updated regularly to inform people about the Center as well as the truth about what Islam really believes and teaches, along with news from here in the United States and around the world how this "relgion of peace" really operates. You can visit the new website at: www.911christiancenter.com
The new 9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero will unfold in two phases. Phase one. We will hold services every Sunday at 11am at the Marriott New York, located at 85 West Street (less than a block from ground zero), in their ballroom starting Sunday, September 5th through Sunday, December 26th. Phase two. As of January 1st, we will move into a permanent facility within a block of ground zero. There will be services 7 days a week plus a "9-11 Memorial Prayer Room" for the many visitors who come to ground zero each day to stop in and pray.
During phase one, I have made the commitment to travel from Florida to NYC each weekend to personally conduct the Sunday services. After January 1st, I will oversee the operations of the 9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero and we will have pastors and evangelists in the NYC area conducting the daily services.
I AM STARTING NOT ANOTHER CHURCH! Our services will be like the old time evangelistic meetings conducted by DL Moody, Billy Sunday, and others who weren't interested in seeker/purpose driven/emerging church marketing strategies to fill buildings with warm bodies, but in simply preaching the uncompromised Truth of the Bible and leading the lost to faith in Jesus Christ!
God has shown me that the new 9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero is going to be the catalyst, the final piece to the many ministries of Liveprayer to not only continue impacting millions of lives for Christ each day, but exponentially expand all of our existing efforts to not just bring God's Truth to the national marketplace in a bold and visible way, not just see souls won for Christ, but have the ability to turn the spritual course of this nation and lead our great land back to God and His Truth!!!
Financially, between now and the end of the year, we will be raising $8,410,000 for this new effort. That is less than 8% of what the Muslims will spend to build their temple their mosque that will be used to lead souls to hell through the lies of Islam and teach this and future generations of Muslims that their ultimate goal is to turn the United States and all nations into Islamic countries. If you don't think this is true, you have never read the Qu'ran and you certainly are not paying attention to what is happening in our country and around the world!
We will need to raise $10,000 immediately to cover our initial costs prior to opening September 5th. By the end of August, we need to raise $400,000. $100,000 of that will cover the weekly services of the 9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero from September through the end of the year. $300,000 will be used to air the Liveprayer TV program each day in the New York City TV market on a major secular station. As we have learned over the years, the TV program is a critical element to keep the daily flow of God's Truth regarding the issues of the day, to minister to people's needs, to bring the lost to faith in Christ, to promote the 9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero, but will also help to attract financial support for this effort.
From September through the end of the year, we will need to raise the $8 million needed to operate at full capacity during 2011. $1 million of that will go towards the operations expenses of the 9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero during 2011, $1 million will cover the years TV budget in the local New York market during 2011, and the other $6 million will allow the program to be aired nationally on a major secular network during 2011. If the Muslims can raise $110 million dollars to construct their mosque and help lead souls to the fires of hell for all eternity, can we not raise just $8,410,000 for a place people can come to find Truth and salvation, while having the national platform in the marketplace to lead this nation back to God and Biblcial Truth???
We will be unleashing a national public relations and fundraising campaign later this week to let everyone in the nation and around the world know about the new 9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero, as well as reach out to people across this land and around the world who know the Lord to help us meet our financial deadlines. As word of this new work of God at ground zero spreads, I know people will be eager to make the financial sacrifce to support it. For a fraction of what some ministries pay for their private jets, or their state-of-the-art buildings, we could literally turn the spritual tide of this nation back to God and His Truth and see a great harvest of souls won to Christ! The support of people across the nation and around the world for the new 9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero is going to allow us to raise those funds we need!
Do you want to do something great for God with your life??? STAND WITH ME!!! I CAN'T DO THIS ALONE!!! I am asking you today to simply pray about what God may be calling you to do to help me with this effort. I am also asking you to please forward this to every person you know, personally reach out to those who God has blessed with financial resources and encourage them to support this new work, and share this email with your pastor and ask him to pray about having your church make a special missions gift towards this effort. I will keep you posted how we are doing with our financial goals over the coming weeks and months.

I love you and care about you so much. I am asking you to do 4 things for me today. First pray for this effort. Trust me, we will be battling the forces of satan on this one every step of the way, but "greater is he that is in us!" Second, please forward this to every person you know. I need everyone's prayers and support in this effort. Third, please pray about coming to the special prayer and informational meetings this weekend in NYC and CT. Also, make the pilgrimage to come to our Sunday services in NYC once we begin on September 5th. Fourth, seek the Lord about what He may be asking you to sacrifice towards this special project.
I am always challenged by the disciples of Jesus and how these few men, sold out for Christ with little money, no fame or reputation, just a desire to serve their Lord, literally turned the world of their day upside down and laid the very foundation of faith we enjoy today. Over these past 2,000 years of Christendom, many have sacrificed all they had for the cause of Christ. I have given my very life, all of my time, talent, and treasure to bring His Truth to this lost and dying world, and the eternal hope all men have through faith in Christ.
When this brief journey through life is over, what do we have to show for it? The only lasting legacy we have are those things we did for the Lord. have taken my stand and will proclaim His truth with my dying breath. Today, I am asking you to pray about joining me! Let's spark revival in the great city of New York, and see that revival spread to the nation!!!
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ, Bill Keller
