Daily Devotional for Tuesday October 12, 2021
Let me share with you an email from YouTube and, "Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world!"
DAILY DEVOTIONAL TUESDAY OCTOBER 12, 2021
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, I know I have only one life, one life to live for You. This is my moment in human history. Please Lord, let me make the most if it. Use my life to do great things for You as I surrender it afresh to You each morning. When I take my last breath, let there be no regrets, no sadness, that I didn't use my life fully for Your Glory! In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: I got an interesting email on Sunday from Youtube. Let me share it with you, "Hi The LivePrayer Show, We have reviewed your content and found severe or repeated violations of our Community Guidelines. Because of this, we have removed your channel from YouTube. We know this is probably very upsetting news, but it's our job to make sure that YouTube is a safe place for all. If we think a channel severely violates our policies, we take it down to protect other users on the platform - but if you believe we've made the wrong call, you can appeal this decision. You'll find more information about the policy in question and how to submit an appeal below."
We did file an appeal especially since we have been airing the Liveprayer TV program on YouTube for the past 15 years, literally since YouTube began. Here was their response, "Hello, Thank you for your account suspension appeal. We have decided to keep your account suspended based on our Community Guidelines and Terms of Service. Sincerely, The YouTube Team"
The fact is I have NEVER once in public, online, or on TV, EVER compromised or watered down the Truth of God’s Word to make it socially acceptable. I REFUSE TO LET ANY MAN CENSOR ME FROM SHARING GOD’S TRUTH! If the Truth of the Bible is not accepted by the culture it is because THEY have rejected that Truth! I vividly remember in the early months of Liveprayer back in 1999 sitting in my office, and as I was starting to see the power of reaching the lost and hurting on the Internet. I knew at that moment there would come a day when the satan, who for this brief season is the “prince of the power of the air,” would mobilize his minions to try and censor God’s Truth from reaching the lost and hurting masses. That has already happened in the major corporate media companies that control over 90% of TV, radio, and print. Targeting Christians on the internet is now where they are focusing their efforts. By the grace of God, very early on Liveprayer has operated our own servers and with our own technical crew. This is a big chunk of our monthly operations but it is also what insures us that our basic daily ministry operations can’t be shut down. Of course we still have to deal with and navigate around all of the email providers around the world. In addition, there are always godless tools of satan who constantly try to hack our servers, but thru God’s protection we have been able to successfully keep the website fully operational, the Daily Devotional going out each morning for over 22 years now, and air the TV program “live” Monday-Friday on our website. As for the TV program, at least for now it is being simulcast “live” Monday-Friday from 11pm-Midnight EDT on our LivePrayer Church ROKU channel, our Liveprayer Facebook page, and our Liveprayer Twitter page. We also post the program 10 minutes after it is over each night for ON DEMAND VIEWING on our Liveprayer Rumble, Telegram, Gab, Parler, Clouthub, TPN, and GETTR pages. EVEN IF EVERYONE OF THOSE PLATFORMS TOOK US DOWN IT WOULD STILL AIR ON THE LIVEPRAYER.COM WEBSITE! The bottom line is that satan is a liar and a loser! God, not the “father of lies,” will have the final word in every situation. BILL KELLER WILL NEVER BE SILENCED, EVEN IF THEY CUT OFF MY HANDS AND CUT OUT MY TONGUE. UNTIL MY FINAL BREATH I WILL PROCLAIM JESUS IS LORD AND THE ONLY TRUTH THAT EXISTS IS FOUND IN THE BIBLE! I AM THANKFUL EACH DAY FOR THOSE FRIENDS WHO HAVE BEEN PART OF THE LIVEPRAYER FAMILY OVER THESE PAST 22 YEARS. ALL THAT GOD HAS DONE THRU HIS WORK HERE HAS ONLY BEEN POSSIBLE BECAUSE OF THE LOVE, PRAYERS AND GENEROUS SACRIFICES OF THOSE IN THE LIVEPRAYER FAMILY! TOGETHER WE HAVE IMPACTED TENS OF MILLIONS OF LIVES WORLDWIDE, BROUGHT HIS TRUTH EACH DAY TO THE HURTING MASSES IN OVER 100 COUNTRIES, AND SEEN OVER 1.8 MILLION WOULS WE KNOW OF COME TO FAITH IN JESUS...WITH MORE ACCEPTING CHRIST AS THEIR SAVIOR BY FAITH EACH DAY!!! THANK YOU MY DEAR FRIEND AND TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!!

One of the most stupid things we can do in his life is try to negotiate with or talk with Satan. Now I realize many people doubt that there really is a Satan, that he is some mythical character with horns, a red cape, and a pitchfork. Some think that Satan is not real, but what we call the evil side of life, something to blame all of the pain and suffering on.
As in everything, rather than try to sort through what we think Satan is, let's go to the Bible and see who he really is. In Ezekiel chapter 28, we find out that the devil was at one time an angel, with access to the very throne room of God. Isaiah the prophet tells of his fall in chapter 14, after Satan desired the very throne of God and is cast out of Heaven because of pride, taking along 1/3 of the angels who followed him.
A quick side note. Maybe now you can see why pride is so dangerous; it was the original sin in the universe. Satan is intelligent, has a memory, a will, emotions, and great organizational ability. THE DEVIL HAS READ THE BIBLE!!!
Think about that. If your enemy has read the Bible, how much more do we have to? He is busy. He imitates God, perverts the Word of God, hinders the works of God's servants, blinds men to the Truth, accuses Christians before God, tempts, afflicts, deceives, undermines the sanctity of the home, and tries to disrupt the prayers of God's people. Can you see why he is so dangerous?
However, let me clearly tell you that his powers are limited. He is NOT omnipresent. He cannot be in more than one place at a time. He is NOT omniscient. He does not know everything. He is NOT omnipotent. He is not all powerful. These are only attributes of God himself. Also, and hear this clearly . . . Satan can DO NOTHING apart from God allowing it to happen as in the example of Job.
The good news is that he has already been defeated by Christ. God foretold of Satan's demise even as early as Genesis 3:15. Knowing that prophecy, Satan and his demons must have been rejoicing as Christ took His last breath on the cross. However, their rejoicing turned to terror just 3 days later when Christ rose from the dead. The resurrection of Jesus Christ sealed Satan's doom once and for all.
The Bible tells us that his final destination is the Lake of Fire for eternity. That is why it is so sad to see people reject Christ. They are going to spend eternity in a place that was never created for man, but for Satan and his fallen demons.
I love you and care about you so much. My prayer for you today is that you will recognize who your enemy is and stand in the midst of whatever he may try to throw at you. Satan's final resting place will not occur until after the millennium, which is after the 7 year Tribulation, which happens after the Rapture.
Until then, we still have to contend with Satan and his hosts. Satan claims authority over this world, which is why he is called the god of this world. He has the power to blind sinners to the truth, contends for the saints to destroy their lives of service and their testimony. He is a very real foe that we must contend with.
That is why the Bible warns us to be self-controlled and alert, to submit to God and resist the devil..to stand firm in the faith. Ephesians 6:11 tells us to "put on the whole armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes." Ephesians 4:27 says " . . . do not give the devil a foothold."
Those who have put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ are protected by His blood. We do not have to live in fear, but in victory. When Jesus was in the wilderness and Satan came to tempt Him, Jesus didn't try to negotiate with him or debate him. He simply stood on the Word of God. Stand on that word today that says "greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world." The best way to deal with Satan is by taking souls on the way to Hell, and reroute them to Heaven.
Live in the victory that Jesus Christ has given us each and every day!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
