Call to prayer

The great trial continues this week (and maybe next) and then it will be over one way or the other.  Our ministry needs everyone’s prayers now more than ever.  I wish I could share more details at this time but I cannot.  My tendency to debate and expose lies and my desire to defend my reputation and the cause of Christ make silence very difficult but God (and my wife and my attorney) has helped me so far.  All I ask is that everyone pray fervently (James 5:16) for the situation, especially over the next few days.

Dinosaur Adventure Land is still seeing lots of visitors and hundreds keep getting saved through our video series.  The radio program also continues to have listeners from all over the world so the work of the Lord continues.  I now better understand what Nehemiah felt in 4:17-18 as he continued the work while fighting the enemies of the cause at the same time.  More later.  KH

    Bro. Hovind,

    My family continues to keep you and your family in our prayers. We wait for details with great anxiety and look forward to the day the actions of the IRS/NAZI’s can be brought to light. God Bless you and your family.

    Dr. Hovind,
    Thank you for all your work. I was raised a secularist and developed a strong belief in the evolutionary dogma from an early age. After viewing your videos and doing some additional research, it became very clear that evolution is a completely bogus theory that has been deliberately perpetuated by lies. This realization has opened the door for God to come into my life. I’ll be praying for your continued success in bring this vital message to everyone.

    In addition, I would like to contribute with some research I just started into how the tree of life attempts to explain the evolution of single-celled eukaryotes to multi-celled eukaryotes that supposedly evolved to humans. Having a strong emphasis in biology and biochemistry in college over 10 years ago, I remember studying single-celled prokaryotes and suddenly jumping to studying complex earthworms and frogs. I haven’t seen your college level videos yet, so I’m not sure if you cover this particular topic. It seems that there is a gigantic gap in the evolutionary timeline between single-celled organisms and complex multi-celled organisms that comprise of multiple specialized tissues and internal organs. For example, there seems to be very few, if any, organisms constructed from cells numbering in the thousands that can show early, “primitive” tissue specialization and specialized organs for functions such as gills/lungs, internal vascular systems, etc. At any rate I’ll keep you updated. Thanks again.

    Dr. Hovind,

    Prayers gone up for God’s will to be done. Right now it is almost 10AM on Monday (PST) and you are back in court. You know we are out here, and will be beside you however it comes out. Don’t trust us to be there of our own strength, trust God that He will call us to be there and that we will obey.

    Nothing ever occured to God.

    In Him,

    Brother Kent,

    I was watching your college CSE class on DVD and you were talking about the New World order and other things going on in the government. You mentioned about how the government was involved in the Oklahoma city bombing. Curious about this I searched on Google for a video documentary about what happened.

    I stumbled upon a video produced by Alex Jones. This man is the head of the 911 Truth Movement. As I watched his documentary with my jaw dropped I felt like I was Neo in the movie The Matrix and I just took the Red Pill. I had for many years studied books about the New world order, The CFR, Trilaterial Commision and the Bildebergers and always beleived that there would be a one world governement in the end times.What I did not know was where it was at and the particulars of what is going on. Mainly because the mainstream media is controlled by these organizations.

    I have been a Republican conservative my whole life starting with voting for Reagan in the 80’s. I am a Christian and a gun owner. I used to watch FOX news and believe what I was being told.

    I am totally disconnected from both parties, I believe after having my eyes opened that there is a small part of the governemnet (Demococrat and Republican) that is destroying our nation. I also believe that the government was directly involved in 911. If you would have tried to tell me this before I would have said you were a conspiracy theorist.

    Please, please inform yourself and watch the documentaries, spread the truth about what is going on . Before you brush it off and say “it’s just liberal bull” consider that Alex Jones is in fact a True Christian conservative and gun owner like myself and used to be a republican. He is neither for the Dems or Rep. Just a true American.

    This link is to his newest video Terrorstorm, it chronicals the history of governement sponsored terror. Bro. Kent, remember the Reichstag? You said you liked to study Hitler to “keep your blood boiling”, well mine is boiling after watching these videos.

    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=786048453686176230&q=alex+jones&hl=en

    And for all you people that have abandoned Dr. Hovind thinking that he is a tax evader, educate yourself about the truth and apologize to your brother in Christ. Watch this video by Hollywood director Aaron Russo. America, Freedom to Facism.

    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-4312730277175242198&q=freedom&hl=en

    Folks, we are in the end times, it’s getting bad. There are FEMA camps setup all over the United States to throw us Christians into, do a Google search. Get closer with the Lord and spread the gospel of Christ!

    Like Brother Kent says “There is a war going on folks, do something”

    You and your family are continually in our prayers.

    God bless,

    Kent and Family , I have been using your Seminar Series at my church to teach a Sunday School class. I am praying for you. I hope you have a reasonable judge. As christians we keep having “Separation of Church and State” thrown at us. But that only goes one direction. The state has been medeling to much in the church. I pray that you would be filled with the spirit, and he would guide your defense and what to say and how to act. May your ministry be blessed.

    Condolences, Dr. Dino.

    Good people can make bad decisions. [KH- I agree] When a Christian goes down the wrong road it is incumbent upon other Christians not to humor him in error, but to give wise counsel.  [KH- I agree]
    And the counsel is to render unto Caesar that which is his. [KH- I agree]  There are countless numbers of 501(C) religious and charitable organizations. [KH- I agree but our ministry is not one of these, see IRC 508 c-1-a] They render unto Caesar the payroll taxes because that is the law. [KH- I agree]

    We can’t very well pray for the law to be unjust and free one from the obligation but bind all of the others to it. [KH- I agree] Therefore what we can pray for is two things. First, for the law to provide no more sanction than would be imposed on anyone else in the same circumstance. [KH- I agree] But secondly, that you obtain better counsel. [KH- I have great counsel but am always willing to listen to sound advice]  For any counsel that would humor you in delusions that these taxes can be avoided is counsel from the devil.  [KH- This needs more explanation.  I am not trying to avoid or evade and lawful duty]

    Dr. Hovind,
    I am very sorry to hear about your trouble with the IRS. I will be praying for you and will also ask my friends and family to pray for you, and hopefully be able to get you on my church’s prayer list this week to alert more people about this crisis.
    I just want to let you know how much your ministry has meant to me. As a product of our public schools, I had evolution pounded into my brain; in high school, I took advanced placement biology for college credit and I remember being humiliated by the teacher for daring to question certain aspects of evolution. The evolution teaching caused a crisis for me, resulting in a very long(years) and severe bout of depression. I had believed in God but was now confused because it seemed to me at the time that all the “smart” people believed in evolution- it was everywhere: A.P. biology, my A.P. chemistry class, geology class, astronomy… I did not know what to believe anymore.
    It wasn’t until years later that I was invited to a Baptist church by my then-boyfriend’s (now husband) parents. Afterwards, they witnessed to me, and for the first time, I felt like I was on the right track, but I was still so troubled- how could I forget years, endless hours, of learning about evolution? I trusted my heart and felt that I had to believe; I was going to believe the bible, all of it, including Genesis, and I was going to believe it as it was written- literally. Then you came to the church I was visiting (Lighthouse Baptist in LaVerne, CA) and I saw your flyer. I attended every single session, then watched the video tape series. I was so HAPPY, I was ECSTATIC to finally understand and realize that creation is RIGHT! I felt like I now had answers when nonChristian friends asked me questions. I showed your tapes to my best friend (she had attended highschool with me, sitting next to me in biology)- she was astonished and outright angry at having been lied to for so many years. I really feel that your tapes were instrumental in her being saved. She was able to see that the only way we are here is because God created us, and therefore we are not answerable to ourselves only, but we are to live our lives for our Creator. Your tapes were the instrument that opened her mind enough to be able to hear the Gospel and respond to it. Now, I have your newer version of your seminars on DVD and have been able to lend them out and have copies made. I also watched them with my little sister and she responded the same way I did- your seminars leave only one conclusion possible- we are God’s creation. I am happy to say that she was saved that same summer at my church’s youth camp that I sent her to…
    This long message is all to just say, don’t get discouraged, you’ve got lots of people praying for you; you must continue doing your ministry- it is so vital in our brainwashed society.
    Psalm 118:6 The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do to me? Keep your chin up, what can man (or the IRS) do to you? I’ll keep you in my prayers and also pray that people will not be so easily misled, gossip, and be so quick to judge,…

    Supporting you in Texas,
    White Family

    PS- I am reading some of the books you recommend in your seminars (Bones of Contention) and wanted to thank you for the recommendation. It is an awesome book, a real eye-opener about all the academic dishonesty engaged in by so called scientists wanting to push their ideas on us at any cost, disguising them as science. The lack of ethics is disgusting.

    Hey Kent,
    It’s Brian. I called you months ago about my situation with my wife, D’Nae. That was back in June. I just found out today from reading that you are going through this situation. Very sorry to hear that. Those provincial governors who were under Daniel hated his guts and tried to get him killed. They were successful at throwing him into the lions den, but remember, God was with him.

    You might get “thrown in” so to speak, but God won’t allow his work to go unfinished. You will know when you have finished your course, just like Paul (2 Timothy 4:7-8).

    I myself am still being persecuted, but I know that the victory is the Lord’s and he will save my marriage. Please remember my wife D’Nae in your prayers. She is still with her parents, and I am still battling both her and her mother with love and kindness (much difficulty when emotions get in the way).

    I can honestly say that I know exactly how the prophet felt when asked, “What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.”

    Be strong, and do not forget to bestow the more honor unto the weaker vessel. Remember, her desire is unto her husband (Gen. 3:16). I’ll call you when the Lord returns my family that we may rejoice.
    —–Brian
    P.S. – Be sure to take a break! Spending and being spent for someone can take it’s toll!

    Condolences again, Dr. Dino.

    It has to be a very stressful time indeed.

    Thank you for responding. I am familiar with IRC 508 c-1-a. It does not matter whether an entity is a Church, nonprofit, or what have you. Church employees are under payroll tax requirements, as are nonprofits, as is every other organization.

    I realize this is not the position your defense is taking. And I will explain more carefully what I meant by the counsel you are getting as “from the devil”.

    A very effective means of destroying a ministry is to have a time bomb planted inside. A bomb that multiplies and metastisizes into such size and scope that when it finally goes off, the effects are vastly more devastating than they would be had the bomb been disarmed sooner.

    In this case the “friendly counsel” seeming to support the ministry is actually the very means by which the ministry is destroyed. Whose handiwork is this? It is not God’s work.

    You will know him by his works.

    Kent,

    There are more pages written on Wikipedia about YOU than there are about Mohammed Atta.

    Did you really think you could go up against such massively endowed tax funded universities without retribution?

    Nay, ye shall be hated of all men for my name sake.

    Robert Trivers, named as one of the top 100 thinkers by Time magazine was utterly confounded- reduced to apoplectic rage by the clear light of truth. You shamed every one of them . Despite all the lies ,the calumniates ,slanderous accusations you always managed to treat these lost and dying sinners with compassion.

    Ministers are saying : Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s. …

    Blinded these throw the first stone at you but refuse to see their own nakedness ,sin and shame as they commit the greater evil.. giving headship to the state and making the government to Lord over their tongues… Selling Christ for faith based tax free dainties. Greedy dogs that cannot get enough.

    “Most people don’t know this, but by signing IRS form 501c3 (tax exempt status) the CHURCH in America has agreed (in very plain and clear terms) to NOT criticize the Almighty government, politicians, or anything political, ever, under any circumstances… The First Amendment right to free speech, amazingly, is voluntarily forfeited by the “Amerikan” church the moment they sign on the dotted line…”No wonder our politicians march proudly with NAMBLA.

    And this popular fellow with the Bible perversion is not the first swine named Ham. Truth is the daughter of time.

    May the Lord keep you and bless you exceedingly

    Dear Dr. Hovind,

    I have always included you in my prayers for what you are doing. Your going up against some of the most wicked, & deciectful men and women on the planet (some of them know what they’re in, some of them dont). I would recommend a gentleman by the name of Dave Champion at http://www.nontaxpayer.org for some advice. He has greatly helped a good friend of mine with his run in with the IRS.

    There is one last thing I’d like to say. I DO NOT want to be in the prosecuters shoes, or the IRS agents shoes when this trial is over. I believe that God sees they’re heart, and I would rather be in Siberia shoveling snow, than to face what God has for them. Nothing may happen today, or tomorrow….but eventually, if they continue to support an evil, wicked, decietful organization (such as the IRS), God will ultimately have a thing or two to say to them; and believe me, he’ll point out the “frivolous arguments” (pun intended).

    Also, for Nagolr

    If you trust “Ceaser” as much as I’m assuming you do, try this little experiment. Write a letter to the US treasury and ask them for a copy of their accounting sheet with the following information: The IRS states that taxes go to pay for the services taxpayers expect. 1. Have them give you a complete list of exactly every single service your (income) tax dollars pays for 2. give you exact dollar amounts of every single service that was paid for 3. give you the name, address, telephone number of every single contractor or agency that recieved these payments. If you get that information, please forward it to me and I will send you $100 in cash. Two years and seven notorized letters later, I have yet to recieve anything close to this information.

    God Bless,

    Joe

    Brother Hovind,

    “Isaiah 41:10
    Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”

    Brother I want to encourage you that God is on your side and that his will shall be accomplished in this situation. All you need to do is believe and trust God’s word.

    Also, marvel not that the world hates you. It does not even really hate you, it hates Jesus, who lives in you. As your brother I am 100% behind you and support you. You are in my family’s hearts always. As my children grow older, I will point them to you as an example of a godly man whom to follow.

    Although the enemy attacks, the tree of the godly will yet bring forth fruit abundantly. Your ministry has given me much ammunition to use against the enemy and lives will be changed through me because of your obedience to Jesus.

    So let not your heart be discouraged, neither let it be afraid. The Everlasting God, Creator of heaven and earth, and everything in it, he is with you always, even until the end of the world. Amen.

    Hi Kent and Jo–your ministry has been such a blessing to us over the years, and we have enjoyed many of your seminars in person. I have no doubt this is an attempt by the enemy to destroy your ministry, you are waaayyy too effective!! I may not agree with you but our family is fervently praying for you and will continue to do so. I pray God’s peace be upon you, we have been following this case since the beginning. Why did you not present a defense? we were just stunned today at how swiftly everything happened, were totally unprepared. Our family supports and prays for you, God will use this for His glory! I pray He will make your ministry even more known thru the publicity. God bless your family and your ministry.

    Kent and Jo Hovind are INNOCENT.

    The ONLY way that they can be prosecuted is by the so called judge and prosecutor TAMPERING WITH THE JURY by keeping the jury from seeing ALL the evidence that would prove their innocence. I suspect that the so called judge cannot produce his/her lawful OATH OF OFFICE rendering him/her an impersonator. Anyone near Pensacola Florida care to investigate this OATH OF OFFICE issue? Why allow an impersonator to administer a court and put INNOCENT men and women in prison? Just finding an OATH on file is not enough, it has to be the correct OATH. No OATH means no AUTHORITY means no JURISDICTION means no PAYCHECK means no PENSION means FELONY IMPERSONATING AN OFFICER.

    Feb. 23, 1923 CONGRESSIONAL RECORD (Excerpt)

    Excerpt from page 4359

    The truth of the matter is that to make an action a crime by human law which is not a crime by God’s law is inevitably to destroy respect for all law; to require men to take an oath before God with a view to preventing them from doing what they feel they have a natural right to do is to weaken the sanctity of oaths and tends to defeat the purpose they are intended to serve. Government ought not to interfere with the personal activity of individuals further than to secure the equal right of each from aggressions on the part of others, and the moment governmental interferences extend beyond this they are liable to defeat the very ends they were established to secure.

    What is the natural law of human progress in its entirety but the recognition of the moral law in human relations? Just as human laws promote the law of equal freedom. just as they acknowledge the equality of right between man and min, just as they insure to each the perfect liberty which is limited only by the perfect liberty of every other, must mankind advance. Just as they ignore or contravene all this must the progress of mankind come to a halt and eventually turn backward. The science of government can not teach any lessons not embodied in the decalogue and the golden rule.

    As the primary purpose and chief object of government is to secure the natural rights and equal liberty of each, all undertakings which involve monopoly come within the necessary sphere of governmental regulation and undertakings that are in their nature complete monopolies are legitimate functions of the Government. As the cooperation of individuals for the gratification of all their desires becomes closer and wider, the Government must assume functions that in a lower stage of cooperation were neither necessary nor expedient.

    Our rights are God-given. The purpose of the Constitution is to protect our God-given rights and to limit government authority. Thus the correct question is not “What rights does the Constitution give to the American people?” but rather “What powers does the Constitution grant to the government?”

    What the Constitution does not allow, it prohibits!!!

    A.L.A. SCHECHTER POULTRY CORPORATION v. UNITED STATES, 295 U.S. 495 (1935)

    AT page 528, 529 ………… ……… ….
    “Extraordinary conditions may call for extraordinary remedies. But the argument necessarily stops short of an attempt to justify action which lies outside the sphere of constitutional authority. Extraordinary conditions do not create or enlarge constitutional power. The Constitution established a national government with powers deemed to be adequate, as they have proved to be both in war and peace, but these powers of the national government are limited by the constitutional grants. Those who act under these grants are not at liberty to transcend the [295 U.S. 495, 529] imposed limits because they believe that more or different power is necessary. Such assertions of extraconstitutional authority were anticipated and precluded by the explicit terms of the Tenth Amendment- ‘The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.’ ”

    Mat 17:25 He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers?
    Mat 17:26 Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free.

    In America the people are Caesar. Think about it!!!

    ============ ===

    …The people are bound to get wise to what this absurdity is doing to them one of these days and, when they do, look out…
    …But let no one underestimate the power of the opposition. Our only hope for relief is in the greater power of the masses.
    Sooner or later that power will be asserted…

    I’m just an old fireman but I learned that where there is smoke there is fire. Why sit in the smoke when you can help us put out this fire. This country belongs to the people who poured their hearts into it, not to a bunch of pompous, wealthy elitists bent on treating us and our children like slaves, or worse. Wake up America! Do you smell the smoke!!!

    Kent and Jo Hovind are INNOCENT!!! What you believe is irrelevant. What can you prove???

    Dr. and Mrs Hovind and CSE, I am greatly saddened by the verdict, although not surprised. Even the greatest disciples of Jesus’ time were persecuted as such for speaking the truth. I pray that God grant you the same strength and fortitude they have. I just want to thank you for your ministry. It has been my prayer for years to have a full-time ministry teaching creation and the truth of God’s Word. But this dream had been vague, not knowing what direction it should take until finding your Dinosaure Adventureland. Your park has inspired my dream and focussed it. I pray and beg to find funding for such a ministry; it is my dream, my passion and my desperate desire all because of your inspiration. Due to your ministry and the ministries of others like you, if God grants me the path, I will be following in your footsteps! Thank you so much for standing up for your faith and inspiring so many including myself.

    I keep hearing “Render unto Caesar” from people and pastors. They have no idea what this verse means. Jesus never paid a dime in taxes (to Caesar) nor was it lawful to do such a thing.

    Dear Goldwings and other supporters of false doctrine –

    You accuse me of “trusting Caesar”. Quite the opposite.

    Matthew 14:24-27.

    Romans 13:1-7.

    These are at least two scriptural mandates for paying taxes, and what I am urging is to oust false doctrine because the effect of this false doctrine has been so utterly devastating.

    Open your eyes and just look at how destructive this will be to the ministry here whereas ministries that followed the law on taxes continue to function freely.

    Scripture was not followed. The result was disaster. Whose handiwork is this?

    nagolr,

    Did you read my article about “Render unto Caesar”? http://biblelaw101.com/Is%20it%20Lawful%20to%20Give%20Tribute%20unto%20Caesar,%20or%20Not.html

    I currently have a job where I do not need to pay taxes (even though they pay me with Fed notes).

    I am not telling anyone to go against scripture. Jesus did not pay taxes to Caesar.

    I am not even saying that we should do what Dr. Hovind did. If one is to avoid paying taxes they need to do it without breaking contracts. God says to obey your contracts. Every time you get paid in Fed notes, you are entering into a contract with the Fed/IRS. So if one were going to not pay, they should deal with property like gold or silver (and not debt notes). Plus if you are going to hire someone and that person is the property of the state (has a SS#), then you must obey the states rules when it comes to their property. (If I were going to borrow your car, I would need to obey your rules)

    Also, if you are going to have a bank account, you must obey all the contracts you have with your bank.

    God set up the laws of Israel. God did not make up religious laws, he made up laws to run a nation. After God set up these laws, he then told us not to turn from this law to the right hand or the left Deuteronomy 5:32, Deuteronomy 17:11, Deuteronomy 28:14 to name a few. Deuteronomy 4:2, Deuteronomy 12:32, also told us not to add to or take away from the law. (A tax to Caesar was not in that law). God set himself up as our King and our only lawgiver. Later, we told God that we wanted a human king like all the other nations. Ever since that time, we have been adding to and taking away from God’s law.

    If the US gave up their millions of laws, and just obeyed God’s laws, we would prosper like no other nation, and it would not be possible to turn into a communist country (like we are today). See: http://biblelaw101.com/The%20Laws%20of%20God%20vs%20the%20Laws%20of%20the%20United%20States.html

    The above two paragraph probably will open up a big can of worms….so read through http://www.biblelaw101.com/ to have many of your questions answered.

    Kent Hovind is a present day saint. He has changed for the better, the lives of thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands. He has a backbone, one of the very rare qualities seen in preachers nowadays. He is strong enough to kneel and weep for those lost souls who hate him. Faced with as many as 288 years in prison for serving our Holy God and defending our Sacred Consitution, when rapists get only 3 to 5 years speaks of the days we live in. A time when millions of unknowns sweep across our open borders while grandmothers have their nail clippers confiscated at airports. As it was in the days of Noah so it will be at the time of the coming of the son of man.”
    My father spent most of his life in prison. Recently a guest preacher at our church made the comment that; “his father couldn’t do much, but he knew how to pray!”. I thought to myself, “my father knew how to curse!”. My father literally had a hatred of religion and rejected Christ along with the hypocrisy and abuse he suffered at the hands of priests as a child. My father knew “Mad Dog” Dutch Shultz and “Lucky” Luciano but I doubt he ever had the chance to meet a man like Kent Hovind. Had he ever had that opportunity to meet a real Christian I believe he might not be in hell now. I saw his face at death, no doubt demons dragged him in.
    An earlier posting mentioned Dr Hovind’s new prison ministry. I was thinking the same thing but at a loss how to broach it without it being taken as flipant. “What a man sets his hand to he should do with all his might.” Kent is in Jail let’s make the most of the oportunity and build a prison ministry around him that will shake the foundations.

    “If the US gave up their millions of laws, and just obeyed God’s laws, we would prosper like no other nation, and it would not be possible to turn into a communist country (like we are today).”

    Let me ask one question. Is it sinful, then, to follow governmental laws such as speed limits? Or, conversely, is it not a sin to break those laws?

    We love your ministry and we are praying for you. Thanks for renewing my faith in the Lords Word. We are in it everyday and having a personal relationship with Him. He is so wonderful. God bless you.
