Scripture: Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet and shew my people their transgression and the house of Jacob their sins (Isaiah 58:1).
Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord. And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it. In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst. (Amos 8:11-13).
My friends, this servant of God is distraught due to the lack of King James Versions of the Bible one can purchase in stores now. There is an upcoming famine in the land as prophesied by the prophet Amos (refer to text). Obviously they are being phased out and other versions of the Bible are becoming popular. It is quite obvious also that anyone who wants to write his/her versions of the word of God is being given front row center. Book shelves, cell phones, computers, tapes, etc., are loaded with so many versions until it’s swiftly becoming difficult to determine the true words of God, especially if you are a new convert.
Oh, my friends, God’s created world is headed for his destruction!! He is becoming angrier and angrier at his human creations.
Because of strange trade agreements with other countries we are no longer in control of or know what we are eating, drinking, breathing or studying. Many people are dying due to strange, incurable diseases and the partaking of strange prescribed medications. Cancer is pandemic.
A few months ago, this servant of God purchased a King James Version of the Bible for a gift, left it in the store for a name imprint and discovered after its “pick up” that the words of Christ were not red. Thinking it was my error and afraid to “trash” the word of God, chose to “shelf it” and purchased another with the certainty of the words of Christ printed red.
A few weeks later, purchased several bibles with the certainty that the red words were evident and discovered, after their “pick up”, that they had been switched to all black print. Upon contacting the manager, they were easily exchanged for the original ones. Why the switch??? Beware!!!
My friends, prayerfully consider purchasing a King James Version if you do not have one. In the near future, it will come to pass that you will be persecuted for owning one and for being a Christian. Study and hide its words in your hearts, now! (Matthew 24)
