Daily Devotional for Wednesday December 6, 2023
The corporate media is now attacking Christians as evil! and, Layoffs during the Christmas season!
DAILY DEVOTIONAL WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 6, 2023
(Isaiah 41:17; James 2:5)
***PERSONAL MESSAGE FOR YOU FROM BILL KELLER: Rise up and don’t be silent. God has given you a voice, USE IT!
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, please help me to be more like Jesus each day. Help me to be kind to others, to care about others, to share the hope of the Gospel with others. I love Jesus and my greatest desire is to be more like my Savior each day. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!!!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: Well, the gloves are off. The corporate media is no longer dropping hints, but is now straight out stating that Christians are more dangerous than Muslim terror groups. Sadly, I have been warning the Liveprayer family that this day was coming. It started with the FBI targeting traditional Catholics and those in the pro-life movement. It is now a full on verbal assault on Christians. They are using the term “Christian Nationalist” to differentiate between Christians who may go to church or not, but are not vocal about their faith in public, and those followers of Jesus Christ who speak out in public about their faith and who live their faith in their daily lives. My friend, this is just the start of demonizing Christians. They use tools of satan like Tim Alberta, the son of a pastor who is part of the “religious left.” The religious left are people who claim to be Christians, but support the killing of babies, all kinds of sexual deviancy, same-sex marriage, along with the globalist agenda of climate change and having every aspect of life under the control of the government. Alberta writes for the far left Atlantic Magazine fully funded by the widow of Steve Jobs, and appears often on MSNBC. The fact is the corporate media like MSNBC, CNN, hate Christians, literally. Look at how they have freaked out over Speaker Mike Johnson, simply for the fact he espouses a Christian worldview. They put Alberta on TV to rip Christians, especially when it comes to President Donald Trump. Daily they state that Trump is worse than Hitler. The fact is Trump was easily the most pro-Christian POTUS in the last 100 years, NOT BECAUSE OF HIS WORDS BUT BECAUSE OF HIS DEEDS! Alberta makes the absolutely stupid argument the media uses that the church worships Donald Trump. ABSOLUTE NONSENSE AND THEY KNOW IT! The goal is to equate the supposed dangerous Donald Trump with Christians. No Christian I know worships Donald Trump, they worship Jesus. Trump isn’t running for Pastor in Chief, but for Commander in Chief! HE IS A POLITICIAN NOT A SPIRITUAL LEADER! Christians look to their pastor and other Christian leaders to grow in their faith. Those who support Trump is because of his POLICIES! OVER 80% OF PEOPLE POLLED SAY THEIR LIFE IS WORSE TODAY THAN WHEN TRUMP LEFT OFFICE! So the corporate media is no longer hiding their feelings towards Christians, and expect their attacks to become more fierce in the days and weeks ahead. They hate our faith, and they hate that without the Christian vote Trump will never be POTUS again.

***DECEMBER FINANCIAL UPDATE: Thanks to the prayers and sacrifices of many in the Liveprayer family, we were able to finally close out our September shortfall during November, and receive the first $10,000 of our October shortfall. That means as we head into the final month of the year we still need to cover the final $45,000 of our October shortfall and the $55,000 we required for November's ministry operations. So far we have covered the first $5,000 of the October shortfall leaving the final $40,000!
I NEED YOUR HELP TODAY! THAT IS $95,000 WE NEED ASAP TO COVER OUR PAST DUE OPERATIONAL EXPENSES AND BEGIN WORKING ON THE $55,000 WE REQUIRE FOR OUR DECEMBER MINISTRY OPERATIONS. THAT IS $150,000 TO END THE YEAR WITH ALL OF OUR FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS CURRENT! OUR GOD IS ABLE!!!
As we are now less than 4 weeks from the end of 2023, please be praying about a special year-end gift to Livprayer! For many, a gift to God's work here will help on your taxes since you are either going to give the money to the government to waste, or to Liveprayer to get HIS Truth out to the masses and save souls!!!
The Bible teaches us to “give according to our ability to give.” For some that may be $10 or $20. For others it may be $50 or $100. Still others it may be $200, $500, $1,000, $10,000 or more. Pray and the Lord will guide you as you make your sacrifice!
ALSO, DON'T FORGET A GIFT OF $1,800 COVERS ONE DAY OF MINISTRY AT LIVEPRAYER!!! I received this email recently, “Pastor Bill, My wife and I have just sold our last rental and God told us to tithe $1,800.00 to pay for a day of your ministry. Not looking for accolades, just that you know when you receive the check. Rest assured that we will still be making our regular weekly tithes."

I am saddened every morning as I open the business page to read about another company laying off thousands of people. While it is only a number in a story to most, the fact is each number is a very real life, with a very real family, that will probably be facing very real financial issues because of losing their job. While there is never a good time to lose your job, it is especially difficult at this time of year.
We are expected to buy gifts for our family and close friends. We are expected to decorate our homes. We are expected to attend various parties and events. All of these require EXTRA MONEY, over and above our normal monthly living expenses. This time of year that is supposed to be personified in the word JOY, quickly becomes a nightmare for many who simply don't have the money to do all they feel they are expected to do.
First, let me reiterate the point I made last week. Christmas is NOT about gifts. Christmas is NOT about decorating your house. Christmas is NOT about parties. Christmas is the day each year that we set aside to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is HIS birthday. THAT is what Christmas is all about, celebrating the birth of our Lord.
Of course, it is impossible to deny the gross commercialism that marks this time of the year but we have choices. We CHOOSE to get caught up in how the world celebrates Christmas. I have yet to read a news account of someone who was forced at gunpoint to go to the local shopping mall and spend thousands of dollars on presents. I realize that if you have children, being able to provide them presents on Christmas morning is important.
However, what is MORE important is making them aware of what Christmas is really about. The greatest gift that you can give your children this Christmas is NOT some toy that they will forget about in a month. The greatest gift that you can give your children this Christmas is the knowledge of what this blessed day is really about . . . the birth of our Savior!
Some practical ways that you can do this is by attending some of the fabulous Christmas pageants many churches now put on. In many cities, some of the larger churches put on incredible, professionally-produced Christmas programs that do a marvelous job of telling the story of Christ's birth. Taking your children to see these great productions will be fun and help them understand the true meaning of Christmas.
Another great thing to do with your children is to teach them that Christmas is NOT about getting presents but about giving to others. Getting them involved in helping to prepare a bag of groceries that you give to a ministry feeding the homeless is a very easy way to help them learn the blessing of giving.
Within your own home, sitting down with the entire family and reading the Christmas Story in Luke Chapter 2 and spending time as a family in prayer thanking God for the wonderful gift that He gave this world that first Christmas all help your children learn that Christmas is the time we set aside each year to celebrate the birthday of Jesus. YOUR CHILDREN WILL CARRY THESE MEMORIES AND THE REAL REASON OF CHRISTMAS WITH THEM FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIFE!
I love and care about you so much. My heart breaks as I read about those who have lost their jobs this past year, knowing the financial hardship that will be on them and their family. Each day at Liveprayer, we respond to thousands of people who are in this situation. It becomes magnified at this time of the year, because of the pressure the world has put on us to "participate" in how it celebrates Christmas.
My word for you today is that you don't have to fall into the trap of buying lots of gifts, or decorating your home, or going to all the parties. Those things are NOT what Christmas is about. The true peace of this season, the true joy of this season, comes from celebrating the birth of Jesus. HE is the reason for the season. The greatest gift that you can give someone this Christmas is to share with them the REAL meaning of Christmas.
The greatest gift you can receive this Christmas, was given over 2000 years ago when God gave you His son Jesus!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
