A lesson from the coronavirus outbreak that shows you how the rise of the anti-Christ will happen!!!

(Exodus 15:26)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, living in the fallen world with so many potential dangers, seen and unseen, I ask today for Your protection over me and my family. Please heal those I love and care about who are battling with an illness, and keep each of us free from sickness and disease as You are the Great Physician. May we not take our health for granted, but use this gift from in order to serve and glorify You each day. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!!!

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: CORONAVIRUS UPDATE! Each night on the TV program last week, I spent 5-15 minutes on different issues involved in the coronavirus challenge facing our nation and the world. Even though the program is LIVE Mon-Fri from 11pm-Mid EDT, each program is available for ON-DEMAND viewing. I would suggest taking a few minutes and go thru each program from last week, Monday 2/24-Friday 2/28, and forward to the part of each night’s program where I dealt with the global challenge, putting all of the various elements of the coronavirus issue in perspective. Here is a link to where you can fine the various locations of the program for ON-DEMAND viewing, the Liveprayer YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter pages.

"He said, “If you listen carefully to the LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you.” Exodus 15:26

A lesson from the coronavirus outbreak that shows you how the rise of the anti-Christ will happen!!!

As someone who looks at things from a very practical perspective, going back to my seminary days over 30 years ago I was always challenged by this last days person we know of a the anti-Christ. Understanding a bit about world governments, the economies around the world, faith as it is practiced in countries across the globe, it was always puzzling to me how one individual would be able to rise up with such force that the governments of the world, those controlling the world economies, those who oversee the major religions of the world, would simply bow down and acquiesce their power to this person.

Normally, such power is only attainable by raw force. There really is no scenario that would allow for the rise of an “anti-Christ” to in essence run the world, by raw force. It is literally global power that will be given over to this person by those who have spent their lives acquiring...AND...holding on to power...NOT giving it up!

In the end, I DO NOT believe this coronavirus will be any different than SARS, MERS, Zika, Ebola, or a few others that we have dealt with over the last two decades. My guess is a couple of these you probably forgot about. I know I did despite having written Daily Devotionals about them and talking about them on the TV program! Initially, each one was proclaimed to be deadly to potentially tens of millions worldwide. However, thankfully each one was under control fairly rapidly and disappeared as an issue.

My personal gut for what it is worth is the coronavirus will be over by the end of March, and the markets at least in the US regaining most if not all of the losses last week by the end of April. I am not minimizing in any way the potential worldwide danger the coronavirus currently presents, I am not offering investment advice, I am just sharing with you what my gut tells me after watching these global outbreaks and praying about them over the past 20 years along with how the world financial markets have always reacted while they existed and in their aftermath.


Now, imagine this with me for a moment. Let’s say the coronavirus continues to spread around the world andwe get to a place where millions are infected and the death toll is rising by the thousands each day. For arguments sake, let’s say ONE PERSON from whatever country you want to name, rises up and has the answer to stop this virus from spreading any further, keeps those infected from dying, and in a 30-day period the coronavirus goes from a worldwide blight that looks unstoppable to being over.

I submit to you that ONE PERSON would immediately become a worldwide celebrity. That ONE PERSON would be sought around the globe to help solve other problems, non-health related, that he/she would also have answers for. This ONE PERSON would hailed as some sort of “messiah” who has come to save the world!!!

I love and care about you so much. My current view of the anti-Christ is that this will be ONE PERSON who will be a master problem solver of the unsolvable problems that exist in the world. These would be problems such as the governance issues of huge populations, economic challenges of every type, and a coalescing around a singular faith that feeds the souls of all by neutering core beliefs that divide the religions of the world much like the New Age teachings do.

My friend, even the masters of the universe who run the world’s governments, economies, and religions would end up bowing down to this ONE PERSON. That would include most Christian “leaders” ceding God’s Truth for a lie. Sadly, I’ve watched it happen and railed against it over and over during the 20+ years of Liveprayer!!!

I am not saying the anti-Christ is currently on the scene, but it is much more clear to me how this ONE PERSON would rise up to fulfill the role Scripture teaches that person will play in the final days.

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller
