Daily Devotional for Monday May 23, 2011
It is Time to Make Our Mark in the History of this World
"The day of the LORD is near for all nations. As you have done, it will be done to you; your deeds will return upon your own head." Obadiah 1:15
IT IS TIME TO MAKE OUR MARK IN THE HISTORY OF THIS WORLD! While the end of the world did not occur this past Saturday, since as I have shared with you only God, no man, knows the day or hour, the fact is Jesus is coming at any moment. If that is 1 year from now, 10 years from now, even 1,000 years from now, the history of this world is but a blip in light of eternity. Our purpose in this life is clearly defined as serving and glorifying God with our lives.
I have done my best to faithfully do that these past 20 years. In the 12 years since we started Liveprayer, tens of millions of lives worldwide have been impacted, we have answered over 70 million emails for prayer, and over 500,000 souls we know of have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior. This has only been possible because of the faithful prayers and sacrificial gifts of so many during the years. We have been blessed over these years to develop the tools necessary to be able to go into the marketplace and lead millions, tens of millions of lost souls to faith in Jesus and change the spiritual course of this nation!
HAROLD CAMPING WAS 100% WRONG TO TRY AND TELL PEOPLE SOMETHING ONLY GOD HIMSELF KNOWS, BUT HE WAS RIGHT THAT JUDGMENT DAY IS VERY REAL AND COMING VERY SOON!!!
Today, I am coming to you and asking you to help me. When this life is over, the only thing that will matter are those things we have done for the Lord. God will judge each of us by what we have done with our lives for the Kingdom. As I have shared with you for many years now, with $10 million dollars, we can change the spiritual course of this nation, and see hundreds of thousands, millions of souls won to Christ. There are many churches and ministries with these types of resources, but they have no vision to go into the marketplace with a bona fide plan to lead our nation back to God and His Truth. LIVEPRAYER DOES!
What I am asking you to do today is pray about this week, making phone calls to at least 10 people you know who have the ability to help our work here with a gift. People all the time ask family and friends to donate to this charity and that charity. If only 5,000 people make this effort, we could easily raise the first $2-$3 million of what we need. Do you love the Lord enough, believe in His work here enough, to make the effort to help me???
Carefully read the rest of today's Devotional, and read the words at this link: http://www.liveprayer.com/ddarchive3.cfm?id=4069 It will give you tons of information to be able to talk with people you know about supporting God's work here at Liveprayer. People all the time ask their family members, friends, people they know, to give money to a politician, or worthy charity. What is more important than an effort to lead this nation back to God and His Truth, while bringing hope to the hurting and salvation to the lost?
Every person reading these words today can help me, since everyone can pray for this effort. For those who are able, you can help with a gift towards this effort. Everyone knows someone who has the ability to give even $10 towards this effort. Sadly, local churches aren't interested in giving to ministries not affiliated with their church or denomination. However, you know Godly people who God has blessed to be able to help in this effort.
WILL YOU TAKE A FEW HOURS THIS WEEK AND CONTACT THE PEOPLE YOU KNOW IN YOUR LIFE, SHARE WITH THEM THE WORK HERE AT LIVEPRAYER, AND ENCOURAGE THEM TO PRAY ABOUT MAKING A GIFT TOWARDS THIS EFFORT???
The judgment of God is falling, it is time to seize the opportunity! Only the spiritually dead or those who simply deny the existence of God, can't see that what this nation is facing is the beginning of God's judgment for our sins and wickedness. I actually laugh each time I hear some "genius" on TV talking about when this current economic crisis will be over and things will be "back to normal." I have news for the experts, things are NEVER going to be "back to normal," and the ONLY hope we have to see anything but the total destruction of life as we have known it, is to get on our knees, repent, and turn back to God and His Truth. THERE IS NO OTHER ANSWER!!!!!!!
Recently, the late Pastor David Wilkerson of the Times Square Church, author of "The Cross and the Switchblade," and founder of Teen Challenge, warned the readers of his blog about an "imminent catastrophe." Wilkerson is one of God's prophetic voices in these last days, and what God has told him is confirmation of what I have been telling the Liveprayer family and the nation for the past 3 years.
There are others who are now starting to speak up on the fact that what this nation is experiencing is much more than simply an economic crisis. Daily now, I am getting emails from people around the world, confirming all that I have been getting ridiculed for stating in the media the past several years. As the days, weeks, and months go by, as things progressively get worse and not better, as it finally becomes obvious that the politicians have NO ANSWERS, I believe in my heart that God's people will wake up and regular people who have no faith will start to listen. I pray daily that enough of them will open their hearts, that a real move of God's Spirit will be unleashed upon this land.
Sadly, President Obama is so consumed by the spirit of the anti-Christ ( note I did NOT say, nor do I believe for a second, he is the anti-Christ), leading this nation further from God and His Truth, that he is too blinded by power and spiritually bankrupt to see what is really happening to our nation. While this man who had never even run a lemonade stand in his life bankrupts the treasury with his foolish schemes, more people each day suffer. If he had ANY fear of God, rather than advancing his pro-death policies, supporting the radical homosexual movement, and siding with the enemies of Israel, he would be in sackcloth and ashes calling this nation to prayer and fasting, to repentance, and to turn back to God!!!
My friend, there will never be and spiritual leadership from Washington. No politician is going to lead this nation spiritually, only men and women of God can do that! I refuse to sit back in silence and watch this nation destroyed under the wrath of God while it can still be avoided. This is the time and now is the moment for action. Through the Jonah Project, I have shared with you an aggressive and proactive plan to mobilize God's people as we take our stand for Christ in these last days. There is no more time to sit back in silence, play games, be distracted by the temporary pleasures of this world while the nation sinks into the spiritual abyss and is destroyed.
Listen to me carefully, the destruction of this land and life as we know it is at hand whether you understand it or not!!!
It is sad to see the so-called Christian leaders of our day still playing their games, still more concerned with the survival of their kingdoms than God's Kingdom, still worried with how to raise money instead of how to lead the lost to faith in Jesus Christ. Spineless, gutless wonders like Joel Osteen have the audacity to smile and tell people everything is going to be OK and they can prosper even in this down economy. The prosperity pimps on Christian TV are still selling their perverted money appeals harder than ever, while the judgment of God is falling on this land and hurting people need a message of faith, not where to send their love gift.
My friend, the hour is at hand. I believe that like Nineveh, we still have the opportunity to repent, turn back to God and His Truth, and be spared His continued judgment and wrath on our land. I also firmly believe that if we don't turn back to God, His wrath and judgment will continue to be poured out on this nation for our sins and wickedness and life as we know it will cease to exist. How long did we think we could keep killing 4,000 innocent babies a day? How long did we think we could pervert God's Holy Institutions of marriage and family? How long did we think we could side with the enemies of Israel? How long did we think we could worship the false God's and idols of this world? How long did we think we could spit in the face of God before His mercy and patience ran out???
This message today is a simple wake up call to all who have been sleeping. You need to forward it to every person you know. Pastors need to start preaching on the fact that we are living under God's judgment and now is the time for the church to rise up and be the church. We no longer have the luxury of simply being a form of entertainment. It is time to mobilize the troops and send every man, woman, and child to battle stations. THIS IS NOT A DRILL!!!
Several years ago, right before God began to unleash His judgment on this nation thru the economy, the Lord led me to launch the Jonah Project. Most dismissed it at the time, but in hindsight, it was God trying to prepare His people for what was to come. Take a few minutes and go to the Jonah Project webpage at, www.liveprayer.com/jonah . There is a 7-8 min. video that will play when you get there which lays out the vision of the Jonah Project. Again, as you will see, it was God preparing His people for action as He began to unleash His judgment on our nation. Pray, SEE the vision, get signed up, and be part of this last days remnant who is going to call this nation to repentance and to turn back to God and His Truth.
I love you and care about you so much. I know many will be upset by this message today. I have heard from many over the months telling me to stop talking about the economy and God's judgment and "be positive." I suggest that you go listen to Osteen or any of the prosperity pimps who only care about your money. I suggest you listen to the so called "Christian leaders" who are out there building their own kingdoms while our nation is experiencing the judgment of God. Stick your head in the sand like an ostrich and believe the lies from Prescient Obama and the politicians that they will fix all of this. God is going to hold me accountable one day, I have NO CHOICE but to sound the trump and warn the people what is happening no matter how unpleasant it may be or how many people it upsets.
Any pastor, priest, or ministry leader that is not preaching about the fact God is judging our nation for its sins and wickedness is committing spiritual malpractice. This is the time the body of Christ must come together as one if we are to save our land from destruction. This is one of the greatest evangelism opportunities in human history to see an incredible harvest of souls as people are hurting, looking for hope and answers, hope and answers that are only found in Jesus Christ. All who know Jesus have been commanded, not asked, to share Christ with the lost and hurting in the world.
The judgment of God is falling on our nation as I type these words. I pray today that the Lord will stir you, wake you up, and that you will take your place on the front lines with me as we take our stand for Christ. Satan has unleashed all of his weapons and will do everything he can to insure God's judgment continues until this nation is destroyed. We can either sit back in silence and watch it happen, or step up and fight. I will fight with my last breath because I believe the soul of our nation is worth fighting for as are the souls of the lost who are heading to an eternity in hell without Jesus. Will you fight with me for our nation and the lost?
***MAY FINANCIAL UPDATE: THANK YOU for the outpouring of love and the sacrifce many made during April. Through yesterday, we have received $80,000 of the $150,000 in donations and pledges I asked the Lord to deliver by the end of April. I am still walking by faith that by the end of May, the last $70,000 of this amount will come in!
Maybe I should predict the end of the world and take in $80 million in donations as Family Radio's Harold Camping did. Or promise that if you give Liveprayer money, you can be debt free, even rich as the prosperity pimps on Christian TV like Murdoch, Hinn, Creflo Dollar, and the rest do that enables them to fly around in $50 million private jets, live in multi-million dollar mansions, and live like the rulers of small nations instead of formulating a real plan that can save millions of souls and lead this wicked nation back to God and His Truth before we see the wrath and judgment of the Almighty.
I COULD CARE LESS ABOUT EARTHLY RICHES, AND FOR A FRACTION OF WHAT MOST NATIONAL MINISTRIES TAKE IN ANNUALLY, USE THE PROVEN MINISTRY TOOLS WE HAVE DEVELOPED THESE PAST 12 YEARS ONLINE TO CHANGE THE SPIRITUAL COURSE OF OUR NATION!!!
God uses human instruments. Everyone expects someone else to answer the call, and miss His blessings that flow from our obedience. Please take a few minutes today and ask the Lord what HE is calling you to do to insure this need is met. Over the past 12 years, men and women of God have stepped up at the 11th hour to further His work at Liveprayer. Today, I am looking for 2-3 key people to take their stand with me with a special gift of $5,000 or more, and hundreds of others to give as you are led and able to give.
The Bible teaches to give according to our ability to give. For some, it may be just a quarter you find in the couch. For others, it may be $1, or $5. Still others, especially those who are working can give $20, $50, $100. Still others who God has blessed can send a gift of $200, $500, $1,000, even $10,000, $20,000, $100,000, or $1 million. People give $1 million every day to causes they care about. Is the eternal soul of a nation, the souls of millions of people worth $1 million if you have the ability to send such a gift?????
--->To make a special gift to Liveprayer, you can send your gift to Liveprayer on your major credit card at our website www.liveprayer.com under the "Donation" button, or you can give from your PayPal account by using my email address, firstname.lastname@example.org , or you can mail it to: Liveprayer, 6660 46th Avenue North, St. Petersburg, Florida 33709. All gifts to Liveprayer are 100% tax deductible.
Thank You for praying, and taking your stand for Christ with me. Together we will see this nation turn back to God and HIS Truth, while leading millions of lost souls to faith in Jesus, for the glory of God!!!
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ, Bill Keller
