"It blocked the entrance to our campus and the fact that it was an entire load of Bibles is rather conclusive proof that is was most assuredly directed at us. It did not, nor will it stop us. It was cleaned up in time for people to drive into the parking lot. We had a full house and a marvelous service." -Pastor Greg Locke, via USA Today

The Wilson County Sheriff's office says the trailer had been dropped off in the middle of an intersection around 6 a.m. "and then intentionally set on fire."

"To uphold the integrity of the ongoing investigation, other specific details cannot be provided at this time. However, we assure the community that further updates will be shared at the appropriate juncture," the department said in a statement. "We appreciate the cooperation and understanding of the community during this period. The safety and security of our residents remain our utmost priority."

Greg Locke, the pastor of Global Vision Bible Church, said security cameras captured the moment a man dropped off the trailer—directly in front of the church.

"There was a lady that had driven through the night to get to our church and she was in the parking lot and was able to get the police officers here quickly, but it was quite the scene to wake up to on my first morning back from Israel," Locke wrote on Facebook.

Our nation is in the midst of spiritual warfare. A demonic force has spread across our nation—burning churches and Bibles. The same demonic force prompted the White House to declare Easter Sunday as Transgender Visibility Day. As I write in my new book, "Twilight's Last Gleaming: Can America Be Saved?" we are not dealing with political warfare. This nation is in the midst of a spiritual war. It's good versus evil.
