Daily Devotional for Wednesday October 21, 2020
FORWARD, FORWARD INTO BATTLE LED BY THE POWER OF ALMIGHTY GOD!!! AMEN!!!
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, please help me to be a person of truth. I know that lies are from satan and the truth comes from God Himself. In this world that has accepted lying or not being totally honest, let me stand on the foundation of Your Word and be a person of the Truth for the glory of God. In the name of Jesus I pray. AMEN!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: In Pakistan, a Christian man has been sentenced to death for blasphemous text messages. DEATH FOR BLASPHEMOUS TEXT MESSAGES!!! Now, while I would ask you to pray for this dear brother who will most likely die for his faith, I am also sharing this with you for another reason. When will Christians here in the United States start being put to death for what the government may consider a “blasphemous text?” Before you stop reading and dismiss this as a foolish statement that could never happen, please indulge me and read on. Major social network companies are randomly censoring Christian content as I speak. Many Christian websites have been taken down because their content was deemed to be hateful. Me, Bill Keller, and internet evangelist has been listed on the SPLC “hate map” for the last 12 years because I simply preach the truth of the Bible about the sin of homosexuality, God’s plan for marriage, and the false religion of Islam. Up until 6 months ago if I told you over ½ of the churches in the United States would be closed down by the government with no firm date of reopening and people would literally be put in jail for simply going to church, you would have called me crazy!!! IF YOU DON’T THINK WE WILL EVER HAVE A GOVERNMENT RUN BY AHTEISTIC GLOBALISTS WHO ONE DAY WILL BAN CHRISTIANITY, YOU ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTION!!! Just read your Bible! Due to their sin and rebellion, the children of Israel who freely and openly worshipped the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, were taken over by heathen nations who forbid them to worship their God. Today, you can be put to death for your faith in Jesus in China, Iran, Pakistan, North Korea, and many other countries. Christians are being jailed as we speak in the UK for simply preaching the Gospel under their “hate speech” laws. THE DAY THEY WILL PUT TO DEATH A CHRISTIAN IN THE UNITED STATES FOR SENDING BLASPHEMOUS TEXT MESSAGES IS MORE OF A REALITY AND CLOSER THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE!!! ARE YOU AWAKE YET???????

I pray that you and your family are well, and living as normal a life as possible under the conditions we all find ourselves in. Never forget, you are not alone, and, GOD WILL HAVE THE LAST WORD!
2 things I need to share with you. First, below you will find a special message God laid on my heart this morning. Please pray and read the words that God wants you to hear today.
Second, despite a global pandemic causing worldwide financial hardships, the Lord has been merciful on Liveprayer. We did get almost an entire month behind during the difficult summer months. I am praying we can clear up the balance of our September shortfall and cover this month’s $55,000 budget by the 31st so we go into the final 2 months of 2020 with all of our ministry operations current. GOD IS ABLE!!!
You can only imagine the increased ministry we have been called to engage in with so many people affected in so many ways by the Chinese Flu outbreak. On top of those who have had to deal with the illness, 10x more people are facing many different challenges as a byproduct of the outbreak.
From our normal daily load of apx. 40,000 emails for prayer each day, to nearly 50,000 a day. But God is good, and with so many friends like you praying, making the sacrifices you have been able to make, we have been able to press forwards to meet these needs.
We didn’t cover the balance of our August shortfall until the last week of September. Thankfully we were able to cover $15,000 of our $55,000 September budget over the final days, leaving a shortfall of $40,000.
So far, we have received $25,000, and I am praying that we can clear up the final $15,000 of our September shortfall over the next few days. As we are nearing the end of the year, please be praying about a special one-time year-end gift of $5,000, $10,000, or the final $15,000 since it may help you with your taxes for the current year.
That will leave us the last couple weeks of October to cover this month’s $55,000 budget. THAT IS $70,000 to end the month with all of our ministry operations current as we head into the final 2 months of the year. OUR GOD IS ABLE!!!

I pray that you have been keeping up with the LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET in each Daily Devotional. That is the space I can share some shot but powerful commentary on what we are facing in our nation each day. Obviously the election is what most people are focused on. Let me remind you, that it is God who puts men in power, and God who takes men out of power.
As I have been sharing, we are clearly seeing God’s judgment being poured out on our nation. I reluctantly declared on the TV program near the end of 2019 that this was no longer a Christian nation. We have clearly crossed the line that makes our faith and beliefs a minority for the first time since the founding of this nation.
IF the Chinese Flu outbreak had come and gone in 4-6 months like other outbreaks such as SARS, MERS, and the Swine Flu in recent years, I would have viewed it as yet another warning. Sadly, it is alive and well here and around the world with no let-up in sight. Focusing on our nation, it is clear God’s judgment for our sin and rebellion is underway.
Regardless who the Lord allows to rule the land for the next 4 years, the job before us as Believers doesn’t change. We must rise to the challenge as so many brothers and sisters in Christ over the past 2,000 have, and lead this nation back to God and His Truth. A “Nineveh moment” is the only hope and answer if we are to see one last season of His blessings. I pray daily eternity records we were faithful and met our moment in history.
The only difference for us on November 3rd is will we have 4 more years of a friendly administration, or 4 years of dealing with a hostile administration. Either way, our mandate and job before us is the same. For the sake of the nation we all love and care about, I pray God shows us mercy even though we have no right to ask for it!
As I type these words, over 50% of our churches are still shut down by numerous states and local governments. If I told you as this new year began that in mid-October half of the churches in this nation would have been shut down for 7 months with no sign of opening, you would have rightly thought I had lost my mind. It is estimated that due to financial issues, up to half of the shuttered churches will never reopen.
As sad as that is, I see it as a purging that has been needed for a long time. The churches that are open, those who will reopen, no longer have the luxury of supplying “Christian entertainment” on Sunday mornings. With the threat of fines, even arrests, it will no longer be a “job” or a “payday” for pastors and those in leadership. Those who are serving themselves and not the Lord will be gone.
To be blunt, that is a good thing. It is LONG overdue. As the nation is under God’s judgment, it is a time of reckoning for His church. We are the only true light there is in our nation that grows darker by each day. The days of hiding our light under a bushel are over. As the words of the great Gaither anthem “A Church Triumphant” declares, LET THE CHURCH BE THE CHURCH!!!
I love and care about you so much. History has found us at this moment. A nation that has known God’s blessings over the past 244 years, has squandered those blessings. We much now fight to know them once again. It is up to each follower of Christ to decide that they are going to be part of the true remnant and do their part to lead our land back to God and His Truth.
After over 21 years, I am more certain than ever that God has raised up this work here at Liveprayer for this very moment. We have been on the front lines since day one, we have faithfully and boldly led the people in ways of righteousness to the best of our ability, and now is the moment for us to take our place and lead God’s people to victory!
Please be praying for me, for His work here at Liveprayer, and for what role God is calling you to play as we charge into battle, marching forward by faith, settling for nothing short of total victory!!! There will be no turning back, God’s army does not retreat. FORWARD, FORWARD INTO BATTLE LED BY THE POWER OF ALMIGHTY GOD!!! AMEN!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
