To the editor: Have you ever called a locksmith in the middle of the night? Unless you know something I don't know, I advise you not to call this number. (770) 216-8545.

The person sent was rude and crude and attempted to charge me $385 to cut a lock off and replace it with a lock that would lock my front door.

In fact, I informed him I did not have that kind of money because I am on a fixed income and after paying monthly obligations I have a hundred dollars or less for food and gas.

I managed to scrape up $127 for the person to drill the lock off and throw it on the front stoop.

I called the sheriff's department before the locksmith; the sheriff's officer informed me that he could kick in my door, and I told him no. I could not pay to have someone repair it. Then he said maybe I could break one of my lower windows, but I informed him that I had called a locksmith. He was very friendly and polite and said if I had anymore trouble to call the Sheriff's Department if necessary.

Back to the experience with the locksmith. After telling him that was all the money I had, he said that was all he could do. At least he wasn't leaving me locked out of my home. He then got in his van and left.

I know persons from other countries are not accustomed to making money, but this is showing that the Bible prophecies are true and reliable and being fulfilled daily (1 Timothy 2:1-5, Proverbs 20:23).

It won't be long now. That government we pray for (Matthew 6:9-10) will rule the whole world.

Another instance that we are looking at and living in the last days. Is a person looking at a child being violated and not trying to stop it. Isn't that down right horrible, but we are the point of Psalm 37: 9-11, 29.

Be advised don't just read your Bible daily but seek understanding of the Bible and you will probably be saved (Zephaniah 2:3). Knock, knock. Answer the door. It means your life.
