Liveprayer's Keller Challenges Terror Leader al-Baghdali to Modern Day 'Mt. Carmel' Showdown
ST PETERSBURG, Fla., July 8, 2014 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Rev. Bill Keller, the world's leading Internet Evangelist and the founder of Liveprayer.com with over 2.5 million subscribers worldwide reading the daily devotional he has written every morning for 15 years on the issues of the day from a biblical worldview, has sent a personal video message to ISIS terror leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Liveprayer's Rev. Bill Keller has sent a personal video message to the head of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, encouraging him to renounce Islam and inviting him to convert to Christianity. In his video message, Keller goes on to tell al-Baghdadi that if he refuses to renounce Islam, he is challenging him to a modern day "whose God will answer by fire" showdown like the prophet Elijah challenged the prophets of baal to on Mt. Carmel in the book of 1 Kings, Chapter 18.
Keller stated, "As an evangelist, my life's work and desire is to lead lost souls to faith in Jesus Christ. The Bible says it is God's desire ALL come to repentance, that none be lost. The fact is Jesus died for the sins of ALL men, even Mr. al-Baghdadi."
When asked about his challenge to a modern day Mt. Carmel showdown, Keller smiled, "What Elijah did on Mt. Carmel was to expose the prophets of baal and their "god" as false prophets who believed in a false god. Islam is a 1400-year-old lie from hell founded by a Mecca businessman Mohammed who was nothing but a historically documented polygamist, pedophile, and murderer. Islam has been propagated around the world over the past 14 centuries through intimidation, terror, violence, and death, and still is today.
Keller went on, "If Mr. al-Baghdadi won't convert to faith in Christ, than he should have no problem calling on his god "allah" to answer by fire. It will be a great stage for the world to finally see whose God is the one true God, the imaginary god "allah" worshipped by the world's 1.6 billion Muslims, or the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of the Bible!"
When asked about fears for his personal safety Keller said, "Jesus said don't worry about the man who can kill your body, worry about the man who can kill your soul. You can only be killed once, and I have no fear of dying since only God will say when my work is finished. When He does, I will be ready to spend eternity in Heaven with Jesus. I trust God to protect me and when He answers by fire, the world will see Him in all of his glory and Islam will be exposed for the lie it is. This could start a true worldwide revival."
Rev. Keller has given al-Baghdadi until the end of July to either convert to Christianity or work out the details for the showdown to see whose God will answer by fire.
