Bill Keller and the prophet Jonah. Monica Lewinsky, a name from the past really put the spotlight on the spiritual downfall our nation was beginning to see! My friend, it was 22 yrs ago when the Lewinsky affair with President Clinton came to light. It was also a watershed event for me personally when the spiritual freefall our nation began in earnest. Liveprayer was birthed right after this sordid event in our history was playing out, culminating in the impeachment of President Clinton by the House but not in the Senate allowing him to finish out his term.
As I look back on these past 22 years of Liveprayer, I can see the hand of God raising up this work for this moment in human history, when the nation would have to repent of its' sins and rebellion or face God's ultimate wrath and judgment. Jonah was a prophet in his day. He had no buildings, not staff of people working for him, and didn't have great resources at his disposal.
But Jonah had a relationship with God, a calling, and a mission to fulfill for God. He ran initially, but after God got his attention he fulfilled that call and was used by God to bring about one of the great revivals of human history that saved many souls and a nation from God's pending judgment for a season as they repented and turned to the Almighty!
Like Jonah, I have had a relationship with the Lord since very young, a calling, and a mission to fulfill for God. I too, ran, but after God got my attention in the late 80s, I have spent the past 30 yrs of my life fulfilling that mission. The culmination of these last 22 yrs of faithful service, the birth and rise of Liveprayer.com and the Liveprayer TV program, have all been for this moment in human history when God can use these resources He has raised up to bring a great revival to our nation and see this nation turn back to Him and His Truth and be spared His ultimate wrath and judgment!
I have lived, breathed, and sacrificed every moment of my life these past 22 yrs of Liveprayer to fulfill God's calling on my life. Like Jonah, I have never had great resources, but God has provided for our needs each month as we have served Him. Jonah's message to the Ninevehites had to be carried out by many who heard that message and surrendered their lives to see it fulfilled.
Over these many years, God has brought many dear friends to Liveprayer who have prayed, made great sacrifices, to help carry His message to the lost and hurting masses of our rebellious nation. As Jonah saw the fruits of his faithfulness when Nineveh repented, so we will see the fruits of our labors in the coming months as real revival overtakes this land and a nation today in all out rebellion to God and His Truth repents and turns back to their Creator.
IT IS THE ONLY HOPE AND ANSWER FOR OUR NATION THAT IS EXPERIENCING GOD’S JUDGMENT FOR OUR GROSS SINS AND WICKEDNESS!!!
I LOVE YOU AND CARE ABOUT YOU SO MUCH! GOD CAN ONLY BE LIMITED BY OUR FAITH! THERE IS NO EARTHLY EXPLANATION HOW SOMEONE WITH NO MONEY, NO TECHNICAL BACKGROUND, SOMEONE WHO DIDN'T EVEN OWN A COMPUTER UNTIL LIVEPRAYER BEGAN, COULD CREATE A WORLDWIDE OUTREACH OVER THE INTERNET THAT HAS IMPACTED 10'S OF MILLIONS OF LIVES WORLDWIDE, RESPONDED TO OVER 170 MILLION EMAILS FOR PRAYER, AND SEEN OVER 1.7 MILLION SOULS WE KNOW OF COME TO FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST!
THAT IS HOW GOD WORKS WHEN WE TOTALLY SURRENDER OUR LIFE TO HIM!!!
THERE IS ALSO NO EARTHLY EXPLANATION FOR CREATING A TV PROGRAM 17 YRS AGO WITH NO MONEY,AIRING ONLY ON SECULAR STATIONS AND NETWORKS "LIVE" WHICH VIRTUALLY NO TV PROGRAM WAS DOING, THAT WOULD BE ABLE TO PRAY FOR THE LOST AND HURTING VIEWERS WHILE BOLDLY AND WITHOUT COMPROMISE BRING A BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW TO THE ISSUES OF THE DAY!
THAT IS ALL GOD! AGAIN, GOD CAN ONLY BE LIMITED BY OUR FAITH! THOSE WHO HAVE FOLLOWED LIVEPRAYER FOR A WHILE KNOW I HAVE BOLDLY AND WITHOUT SHAME OR COMPROMISE SHARED GOD'S TRUTH AND OVER THE PAST 22 YEARS. LEADING THIS NATION BACK TO GOD AND HIS TRUTH AT THIS MOMENT IN HUMAN HISTORY IS WHAT OUR ULTIMATE WORK FOR THE LORD WOULD BE.
JONAH WENT TO NINEVEH WITH NOTHING BUT HIS FAITH IN GOD. I STAND BEFORE YOU TODAY WITH AS MUCH FAITH IN THE SAME GOD AS JONAH. GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSON OR NATION AND CAN TURN THE HEARTS OF THE PEOPLE IN THE UNITED STATES BACK TO OUR CREATOR AND SEE A MIGHTY REVIVAL AS OUR NATION REPENTS AND TURNS BACK TO GOD AND HIS TRUTH AND SPARED HIS WRATH AND JUDGMENT FOR A SEASON.
FOR THOSE WHO HAVE STOOD WITH ME IN PRAYER AND YOUR SACRIFICIAL GIFTS, THANK YOU AND NOW IS THE TIME I NEED YOU TO PRAY, SACRIFICE TO GIVE, AND STAND WITH ME STRONGER THAN YOU EVER HAVE. FOR THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN PART OF THIS MIRACLE AT LIVEPRAYER BUT HAVE NOT HELPED ME, I BEG YOU TODAY TO PRAY AND SEEK THE LORD ABOUT TAKING YOUR STAND WITH ME.
I HAVE NO GOALS BUT GOD'S, NO AGENDA BUT HIS, AND BECAUSE I HAVE STAYED FREE FROM THE POLITICS OF THE CHURCH WORLD, THE TEMPTATIONS TO TURN GOD'S MINISTRY INTO MY PRIVATE FIEFDOM PROVIDING GREAT WEALTH AND EARTHLY TREASURE, THE LORD HAS BEEN ABLE TO USE MY SACRIFICE AND THE SACRIFICE OF HIS PEOPLE AT LIVEPRAYER TO BRING US TO THIS CRITICAL MOMENT IN THE LIFE OF OUR NATION!
MAY WE BOLDLY MARCH FORWARD AND LEAD THE PEOPLE BACK TO ALMIGHTY GOD, HIS TRUTH, AND INTO THE PROMISED LAND!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
