  • LORD, may this brother continue in Your peace & comfort. May his wisdom be a witness for You & against the government. They are workers of the devil & are going against Your word without realizing their souls are on the path to hell & the lake of fire. I pray they would repent of their sins after reading the A1611 Bible. In LORD Jesus Christ's name
