Fox’s Neil Cavuto, David Asman and Dave Ramsey will wind up their day long before Evangelist Bill Keller makes the screen but in the wee hours of the morning late Sunday night one of America’s most outspoken evangelists will be talking to people about Jesus.
Keller could talk about stocks and business because he has been well trained in business but for over eighteen years now he has dedicated himself to the preaching of the gospel. He has been called many things by the press because he has called politicians, preachers and celebs to answer for their extravagance or dishonesty but always as it pertains to the Bible and decency.
Keller is a man of many sides. He is a preacher, a prophet and a patriot but also a man of prayer which he takes very seriously. He believes that the most powerful tool he can us to pry America away from its appalling decline is prayer. He does pray for the 2.4 million subscribers to his LivePrayer website, he prays for America and starting this month he will be praying publicly for many people via Fox Business.
Keller is different than most evangelists in that he refuses to preach to a circuit of only believers. He says he has done that but chose to leave the security of the “Christian base” where, if he stayed, after some hard work both his finances and his future would be secured. He says the gospel is for everyone so he brings it to secular TV, internet and venues like his recent successful crusade at the famous Florida State Fair where people have never heard the gospel before.
The ancient prophets weren’t found preaching in the synagogues or the Temple very much. They were heard daily in some cases on the streets, in the market places and at public meeting places.
Keller conducts himself much in the same way as the ancient prophets and he his message is very much like the prophet Isaiah or Jeremiah.
A look at Keller’s ministry and a study of the prophets would produce the same results in some ways. Known to few is the fact that while the ancient prophets blasted Israel and the surrounding nations for there sinfulness, they were after all patriots and lovers of there own nation. Some of them tried to get out of speaking for God by running away, making excuses or holding back in fear. In the end they all obeyed God but all were subject to great sorrows because they knew God meant business…no, not the kind of business you’ll find on Fox. Keller is more than able to explain what kind of business God is talking about.
Although Bill has been heartily criticized for his stand against Mitt Romney’s religion, Oprah’s New Age leanings and Obama’s meteoric unchecked rise in the American voters minds he is extremely soft spoken and is always a gentleman. His knowledge of the Bible is unquestionable and his theology is sound. If TV watchers can get over their initial shock when they see how forthright he is they will have something to learn.
Bill has been the host of one of TV’s most popular live programs since 2003. His show was seen on CBS affiliate stations in Tampa and later in both Jacksonville and West Palm Beach Florida. His daily “LivePrayer” show can be seen courtesy of live streaming television everyday from Monday to Friday between 10 and 11pm EDT.
To see Keller on Fox Business Channel you will have to check with your local cable listings. If you are using DirecTV it will be aired on channel 359
Bill is geared for his new show and so are many people who enjoy watching him on the internet. Keller will no doubt stir controversies but he will represent Christ in a learned, honest and insightful manner as he has on all his broadcasts.
Bill says “" I am excited for this door the Lord has opened for us to bring a Biblical perspective to the top stories of the day, as well as help people going through the problems of life we all face like financial problems, health issues, the death of someone we love, addictions, marital strife, wayward children, employment challenges, and all of the rest of the problems everyone faces in the course of living their lives."
Keller’s entire purpose and the way he places himself in the middle of the secular world to present Christ is perhaps the best way to understand the meaning of Romans 5: 20 “…But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.”
