Daily Devotional for Thursday April 23, 2020
I wonder what the people of Sodom and Gomorrah were doing that fateful morning?
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, we have squandered our blessings as a nation over these past 70 years. Please, hold back Your wrath and fury and give us a little more time to turn back to You and Your Truth. There is a faithful remnant, empower us to rise up and deliver the soul of this nation from destruction. In Jesus name I pray...AMEN!!!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: 50 years ago I was 12 and in the 5th grade. I clearly remember the day in class we had some sort of an assignment about our planet since it was the first “Earth Day.” I specifically remember thinking this is not the 4th of July, or Thanksgiving, or even Mother’s Day, but some sort of stupid “day” about protecting the planet. This of course was long before there would be bogus computer models telling us the world would burn up in 20 years and we would all die. Somehow at 12, I understood that we had a responsibility not to litter, that pollution was bad, and we should be good stewards of the planet God gave us dominion over. I actually learned that in a place called Sunday School! On cue, the current Pope who sees himself more of a social justice warrior than a spiritual leader, had to chime in and claim we have sinned against the earth. The fact is we have sinned against God, NOT the planet! Our sin not only brought on physical and spiritual death to man, but destroyed the perfection of our environment. Our environment would now be infested in sickness and disease such as viruses. Fallen nature would now lash out with deadly lightning, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes, and other natural disasters. It would now be man’s responsibility to take care of this broken planet he would call home and it is to our ultimate benefit to do the best job we can. Sadly however, this issue has been hijacked by people with a distinct political ideology and very real financial motivation!!!
***LIVEPRAYER/REV. BILL KELLER NETFLIX PROJECT As I shared recently, the cost for the pilot episode is $50,000. We broke that up into 10 units of $5,000, with up to a 10% return after 90 days.

If interested, I can send you the executed Letter of Intent to move the project forward and would like you to take a look at this and pray if it is something you might be in a position to be part of.

***HAVING JUST COMPLETED THE SPECIAL 3-PART DAILY DEVOTIONAL SERIES ON HOW OUR LIFE WILL BE AFTER THE PANDEMIC, THE FACT IS WE WILL STILL HAVE A LIFE. THIS HAS BEEN A WARNING, NOT THE ULTIMATE WRATH AND JUDGMENT OF GOD ON OUR WICKED NATION. TRUST ME, WHEN GOD IS DONE WITH US, YOU WON’T NEED BILL KELLER TO TELL YOU “GOD IS DONE WITH US!” HERE IS A WARNING I HAVE SHARED SEVERAL TIMES OVER THE YEARS THAT DEMONSTRATES HOW EASY IT WILL BE FOR GOD TO LITERALLY WIPE US OUT...NOT IN MONTHS OR YEARS...IN DAYS!!!
The incredible vulnerability of the United States to cyber-attacks, espionage, theft, and hacking by the Chinese, Russian and other governments as well as private hacking teams! While people have been desensitized over the last few years due to several people high up in the government during the previous administration using Russia intervention in the 2016 campaign to cripple or destroy the Trump Presidency, there are very real cyber threats that aren’t getting the attention they require!
Most people have no idea the extent of hacking, theft, and espionage takes place in cyber space on a DAILY basis! Not only is the US totally vulnerable in these areas, but because the infrastructure of our entire lives is now computer based, life as we know it could end in a moment!
As I have shared over the years about God's pending judgment on this nation for our sin and wickedness, the natural question I often get is how would it be possible for God to punish this nation similar to when He punished the children of Israel many times for their rebellion. I have shared in the past how God could easily impact the lives of every man, woman, and child through the economy, how Islam could become the United States Babylon, but the fact is the easiest way for God to end life as we know it literally overnight would be by destroying our computer infrastructure.
I have talked to you in the past about the possibility of being attacked by an EMP bomb (ElectroMagneticPulse bomb), or E-bomb. Without getting to technical, it is a missile that is shot into space, detonated miles above its target, and emits an electromagnetic mist over its target. The result is all computers are rendered useless. TV and radio signals are blocked.
Anything with electronics in it, like your car for instance, are damaged. Just think about having computers rendered useless. There would be no electricity, no water, no communications, no banking, no air traffic, no ANYTHING that is dependent upon computers. In an instant, the affected area goes from the 21st century back to the stone age!
With all of our daily lives dependent upon computers to turn on our lights, get water, put gas in our car, shop, bank, to do ANYTHING, destroying our computer infrastructure by a foreign enemy would take us back into the stone-age overnight! Every day companies have corporate secrets stolen, have the private information of their customers stolen, often have their internet operations held ransom , in addition to simple hacking and intentional destruction of websites and information stored online.
The vast percentage of this activity is not being conducted by organized criminal groups here and around the world, but by foreign governments! It is KNOWN that most of this activity is being conducted by the Chinese and Russian governments. Again, not organizations within China or Russia, but the actual governments themselves!!! To be fair, I have no doubt our own government is involved in similar efforts, but the fact remains corporate America as well as city, state, and government operations are ALL vulnerable to attacks on their cyber infrastructure!
Please understand, this can happen without the foot of one foreign soldier ever stepping on US soil. This is not a James Bond fantasy device. It exists today! My whole purpose today is not to scare anyone, but to help inform and educate you. I hear people all the time act like we are such a great and powerful nation and are immune even from God's judgment. People tell me all the time that they can't see God doing anything to us. I am certain that the children of Israel felt the same way. They were the beneficiaries of God's blessings and no doubt felt they were safe and secure from their enemies and even from God Himself.
Yet the Bible clearly documents how God did judge the children of Israel, many times, for their sin and rebellion. I am certain that in the years, months, weeks, and days prior to God's judgment falling, they arrogantly lived in open rebellion to God and His Truth, almost like they were taunting Him to do something. Most I am sure, were so blinded by their sin they didn't even think for a second God might hold them accountable for their sins, even though we have the record of Scripture where God's prophets in those days warned the people to repent and turn back to God or face His wrath and judgment. Sadly, the people didn't listen.
*WE SIMPLY CAN'T KEEP LIVING DAY AFTER DAY, WEEK AFTER WEEK, MONTH AFTER MONTH, YEAR AFTER YEAR IN BLATANT AND UNREPENTANT REBELLION TO GOD AND ARROGANTLY THINK THAT WE WON'T HAVE TO PAY A PRICE FOR OUR SINS! WE ARE HELD ACCOUNTABLE BY GOD FOR OUR SINS AS INDIVIDUALS, AND WE WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE BY GO FOR OUR SINS AS A NATION!!!
I love you and care about you so much. My friend, this is not a time to run and hide in fear, but a time to stand up and be counted. We are God's children, we are the remnant, we are the ones who must warn this nation and world of God's pending judgment and wrath. God will not be mocked. He will not sit back in silence very much longer. We are not due His wrath and judgment, we are OVERDUE His wrath and judgment!
I wonder what the people of Sodom and Gomorrah were doing the morning the fire and brimstone rained out of the heavens and destroyed their cities. I imagine they were simply living their lives, totally oblivious to what was about to happen to them. They were so lost in their sin and rebellion to God they didn't even think for one second that He would judge them one day. I submit to you that the people in this nation are no different than the people of Sodom and Gomorrah!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
