A few moments later, while getting a cup of coffee in their kitchen, the Lord touched me again and said “make it 1,ooo King James bibles”.
Greeting from the beautiful state of Tennessee, y’all! The Lord has led me safely here to Shelbyville, thanks to all of you who prayed for traveling mercies, I sure do covet your prayers. I have to tell you, I am not merely excited to be here for the 52nd Annual B&LMF Scripture Conference, after a tour of their King James Bible printing facilities, I am bouncing off the walls. Let me tell you why.
“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!” Isaiah 52:7 (KJB)
Tomorrow I will be filming a video walk-thru of the magnificent facilities where the Bible & Literature Missionary Foundation prints their King James Bibles, which they then ship by the container load around the world where people don’t have any bible. So you can expect a full-blown report detailing who they are, and what they do, which is an incredible story of faith that will inspire you to get something done for the Lord. But today, I got a ‘sneak peek’ into their operations, and the Lord just dumped a very unexpected blessing on me, and as you will see, He dumped it on all of you, too.
As I was being shown around the printing plant, I came to the assembly line where I took the photo that’s at the top of the article, the one that tells you that a giant, 1,000 pound roll of paper will print 500 full King James Bibles, or 2,000 New Testaments, or 10,000 bible portions like the gospel of John or the book of Romans. The sign also tells you that one giant, thousand pound roll of paper costs $800 dollars. It was at that precise moment when the Lord touched me.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8,9 (KJB)
I stood there for a long moment, looking at that sign, and I thought how great that would be to be able to purchase one of those giant rolls of paper, and make it possible for B&LMF to send out 500 King James Bibles to somewhere like India, Indonesia, Bali, Sri Lanka or any one of the many countries they send bibles to. As I continued my walk through the printing plant, the desire to be used of the Lord to do that burning within me, and I said “yes, let’s send 500 King James Bible to people who have no bible!”
I love getting in where God is working, don’t you? But the Lord was aiming a tad higher than that, as I would soon find out.
A few moments later, while getting a cup of coffee in their kitchen, the Lord touched me again and said “make it 1,ooo bibles”. A thousand bibles, wow, that really hit me hard. 1,000 full King James Bibles takes 2 thousand-pound rolls of paper, which cost $800 each. Now $1,600 is a fairly big chunk of change, but guess what? Because of all of you who donate to NTEB, who pray for us, who share our links and support this ministry, I had the money in the bank to do just that. And because of your faithful giving and praying, you have a part in every one of those 1,000 King James Bibles that will soon be going across America where needed and overseas also. I am also coming back with a couple of cases of the King James Bible in Spanish, which we will use for the NTEB Free Bible and Tract Program to get the word out to our Spanish NTEB’ers who need the bible in their own language. God is good!
“Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.” 2 Corinthians 5:9,10 (KJB)
The Judgment Seat of Christ will be a place where rewards for service done for the Lord will be handed out, and sending out 1,000 bibles to unsaved people who walk in darkness who will now have the opportunity to hear the gospel and get saved is exactly how you earn some of those crowns. If you have money to give, give it. If you have no money but you can pray, pray with all your might. Everyone reading this article can do something, and the Lord who sees in secret will reward you openly when we get up there. God doesn’t need your money, it’s your heart He’s looking for, so give it to Him and the rest will follow as He decides how best to use you.
“Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.” Job 23:12 (KJB)
One of the reasons why I wanted to come to this Scripture Conference was so the Lord could recharge me, and give me a fresh vision for the ministry. I came in full anticipation of hearing some great preaching, but the Lord decided to recharge me from the moment I stepped into the building! That’s just like Him, giving me more than I asked and sooner than I expected. The Lord is funny that way, oftentimes the greatest blessings He gives us is the opportunity to be a blessing to someone else. It’s not about you, it’s about Him.
Please continue to pray for me while I am here, I greatly miss not being able to do the radio programs, but I feel quite confident the next time I’m behind the mic, I will have some fresh “meat of the word” to share with all of you. In fact, my cup will likely be running over. Till then, remember that the “war is real, the battle hot and the time is short…to the FIGHT!”
Now The End Begins is your front line defense against the rising tide of darkness in the last Days before the Rapture of the Church

When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations. All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 15,860+ people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 150,000+ followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 15,900 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
