weird SMS messages

Thousands of European cellphone users, from various countries (Austria, Poland, Germany, Romania) are receiving SMS text messages from several numbers in another country. The messages are English, and contain passages from the Bible!
The most used message center is +46731234200, but many others are used , like +966590109069 , +85516800000 , +9779851555081 , +919891940472 , +005058533969 (full list at the end of the post).
At first, some of the messages appeared encrypted somehow, but this was probably due to an encoding issue, as the messages appear to originate from Asia.Some of these weird text messages :

So his father went down unto the woman: and Samson made there a feast; for so used the young men to do.
Yet they had a file for the mattocks, and for the coulters, and for the forks, and for the axes, and to sharpen the goads.
After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
And the days that David reigned over Israel were forty years: seven years reigned he in Hebron, and thirty and three years reigned he in Jerusalem.
The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even for ever more.

There is no official explanation for these messages, and people’s imagination has gone wild about them.
Some of them consider them very creepy, while others simply consider them to be sent by a religious organization with very deep pockets.

If you received one as well, post it below, maybe we can find what or who is behind all this.
