Daily Devotional for Thursday October 2, 2014
Some Trust in Chariots and Some in Horses but We Trust in the Name of the Lord Our God
***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, do you believe in the rapture happening before or after the tribulation?
ANSWER: Always an interesting discussion since so much of the order of end-times events are not very clear from Scripture. I personally hold to a pre-trib rapture, but try not to get to distracted with these end-times issues that we will have no control over, and focus instead on what is happening today that we do have control over.
"Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God." Psalms 20:7
Ushering in a real nationwide revival!!! At the end of the day, my only concern is the spiritual state of this nation and the eternal souls of men! As I have been sharing with you for these past 15+ years, hitting it hard weekly since I warned you in late 2007, God's judgment is being poured out upon this nation. I told you it would be clearly seen just weeks before the economic collapse occurred affecting every man and women in this nation draining trillions of dollars of wealth.
I told you it would accelerate if the nation elected Obama in 2008, and I have warned you that it really didn't matter which of satan's sons was allowed to rise to power in 2012..this nation is under the judgment of God for our sins and turning our back on God an worshipping false gods and idols!!!
Liveprayer was birthed by God over 15 years ago, has created the proven ministry tools online and on TV to effectively pray for people in their hour of need, lead the lost to faith in Christ, and gather the "last days remnant" to help lead our nation back to God and His Truth as Jonah did the people of Nineveh! After over 22 years of ministry, satan knows I can't be bought, that I won't compromise God's Truth regardless the personal consequences, and I will stand for the Lord until my last breath.
THE ONLY WAY SATAN CAN NEUTRALIZE IN ANY WAY OUR WORK HERE, SLOW IT DOWN, OR SILENCE ME IN ANY WAY IS THROUGH OUR FINANCES! I DON'T NEED MILLIONS OF DOLLARS SINCE LIVEPRAYER DOESN'T OWN BUILDINGS, PRIVATE JETS, LUXURY CARS, MANSIONS, NOR DO I LIVE LIKE A HOLLYWOOD CELEBRITY. IN A MODERN DAY FISHES AND LOAVES MIRACLE, GOD USES THE $65,000 WE REQUIRE EACH MONTH TO ENABLE US TO MINISTER TO THE 2.5 MILLION PLUS PEOPLE WORLDWIDE WE REACH DAILY ONLINE AND OUR NIGHTLY TV AUDIENCE OF APX 300,000.
FOR LESS THAN $800,000 A YEAR, THE APX BUDGET OF A LOCAL CHURCH WITH LESS THAN 1,000 MEMBERS MEETING ONCE A WEEK, LIVEPRAYER IS NOT ONLY ABLE TO IMPACT LIVES AND SAVE SOULS WORLDWIDE EACH DAY, BUT USE OUR PROVEN MINISTRY VEHICLES ONLINE AND ON TV TO HELP LEAD OUR NATION BACK TO GOD AND HIS TRUTH BEFORE WE SEE THE FINAL WRATH AND JUDGMENT OF ALMIGHTY GOD POURED OUT ON OUR LAND FOR OUR SIN AND REBELLION!
TODAY, I AM COMING TO YOU AND ASKING YOU TO PRAY ABOUT WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP ME. I AM ONLY ASKING TO KEEP IN PLACE THE EXISTING MINSITRY TOOLS ONLINE AND ON TV WE REQUIRE TO FULFILL HIS WORK HERE EACH DAY. WE DESPERATELY NEED TO COVER THE $53,000 FROM SEPTEMBER THAT IS CRITICAL TO OUR ONGOING OPERATIONS. $25,000 OF THAT BRINGS OUR INTERNET OPERATIONS CURRENT THROUGH THE END OF SEPTEMBER, AND THE OTHER $28,000 IS DESPERATELY NEEDED TODAY TO INSURE WE DON'T LOSE OUR TV CONTRACT IN CHICAGO THAT I BELIEVE IS CRITICAL TO OUR WORK IN THESE FINAL DAYS OF 2014!!!
We ended the month of September with a $25,000 shortfall in our internet budget, a $13,000 shortfall in our TV budget, and still require the final $15,000 to pay off the shortfall on our Chicago TV contract from the summer months. That is $53,000 we require by the end of the week to have all of our operations current!!! Please pray, since everyone can do that. For those who are able to make a sacrifce of $20, $50, $100, $1,000 or more, please seek the Lord what HE is calling you to do today to help us end this month with all of our basic operations current!
During a conference call on Monday the 22nd with the executives at the Chicago station, we were given until this past Monday (9/29) at 3pm EDT, to have $15,000 we still owe the station from shortfalls during the summer months, plus the $13,000 balance from September's airtime costs, or our contract will be cancelled. In speaking with them the other morning, they asked if I thought we could get the $28,000 paid by this coming Friday, TOMORROW!
I said I wasn't 100% sure but would do my best and trusting God to send someone to help us make that happen. I am praying for one of our friends who has been blessed and able to send a special $28,000 gift to help me insure that balance is cleared up by tomorrow!!!
*If you can help me with this, please contact me ASAP at: email@example.com
We have fought to keep this blessing God has bestowed on us since this past February reaching the 10 million in the Chicagoland market on a major local station every Mon-Fri from 11p-1a (Chicago time). I believe Chicago is a critical element to enable Liveprayer to help start a true revival in this nation and see the start of true repentance and turning our nation back to God and His Truth..BEFORE THIS YEAR IS OVER!!!

I love you and care about you so much. Our nation is in spiritual freefall, in great turmoil on every front, and it is the ideal atmosphere for a real spiritual revival in this land! The ONE and only hope and ONE and only answer for this nation is to turn back to God and His Truth by getting on our knees, repenting of our sins, asking God's forgiveness for our sins, and turning our hearts back to Him and His Truth!!!
My word for you is simply this. REAL change only comes one heart at a time. Revival will only come one heart at a time. It is time for those in the Body of Christ to rise up, quit allowing satan to distract us, and do the work we need to in order to spark a true revival, to lead our nation back to God and His Truth. We are under the judgment of God and time is short.
THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW!!! THE ATMOSPHERE FOR A TRUE NATIONWIDE REVIVAL IS UPON US!!! WILL YOU STAND WITH ME???
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ,
