Dear Sharon: (A Blog About Dietrich Bonhoeffer)

Dear Sharon,
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! for sending me the new book “Bonhoeffer, Pastor, Prophet, Martyr, Spy” by Eric Metaxas ((c) 2010- Thomas Nelson). WOW! I couldn’t put it down!!

Over the years I have read LOTS about Pastor Bonhoeffer and his lonely 11 yr stand against Adolf Hitler.

As I read the book I could see many hundreds of parallels between the way Hitler co-opted, coerced, deceived, threatened, infiltrated and bullied the German Churches into accepting and then assisting him in his maniacal grab for power. The soon coming anti-Christ will follow the same pattern to dupe the sleeping believers today. I pray there are still some Bonhoeffers alive to resist!

Every pastor, church leader, parent and concerned believer needs to read this book!!! They need to imagine the same thing happening again soon (only much worse!) and think about what decisions they will make. Hitler’s “Third Reich” was just the trial run for the coming New World Order. Jesus warned His disciples that the end times would be “great tribulation such as was not since the begging of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” Mt. 24:21

See how Bonhoeffer handled the “anti-Christ” of his day, meditate on it carefully and pray for wisdom!!!

The very near future will be a great time to win crowns!! Rev. 2:10.

As much as I hate this time in prison away from my ministry and loved ones I LOVE the free time to read books like this that will change me for eternity. This book is on my MUST READ list for anyone with “ears to hear.”

My special thanks to you, Brian and the boys for all your visits, prayers and junk food from the vending machines during my three years in Edgefield. God has a special reward for you all! See Mt. 25:34-46.

More Writs going in soon to the Supreme Court. One will work. Meanwhile, God has been so-o-o-o-o good to give me this precious prison time to read, pray, meditate and study. BIG changes are coming soon to planet earth and we need to warn anyone who will listen. Please pray Acts 12:5 style for my soon release.

    I’m praying for you everyday that God will release you from prison soon. I’m glad you’re doing well considering the circumstances.

    Seriously, i was in aww watching your seminar’s and debates. It’s very inspiring to see people like you taking on the corruption of evolutionist,who deny God,His existence,and His right to judge His creation.

    May God bless you and give you an early release!

    Hi Kent,

    Great Post, but surly you really cannot mention such a noble resistance against the Nazis without also mentioning the one Church that actually benefitted from their existence. A Church who’s organisation Hitler modelled on, and incorporated in the formation of the SS.

    Although Hitler was an certainly an evolutionist, he was by no means was an Atheist. Hitler himself was a natural born Catholic, He loved the Catholic Church, and his work was nothing less than the continuation of the Catholic doctrine and practice known for hundreds of years previous to his life as the inquisition.

    As a Catholic Hitler fully supported the Pope and would have believed him to be infallible (according to Catholic doctrine) and this same “infallible” Pope fully supported Hitler and the Nazis in general. There was no bullying or anything like that between them, in fact the Catholic Church benefitted greatly from the Nazis in having the Vatican given Nation Status and thus diplomatic immunity. This same international recognition has gone unquestioned right through into today’s world. Indeed the Catholic Church owes a lot to the Nazis; it is noted that after the War the Catholic Church was instrumental in helping many of the high ranking SS escape justice.

    So where is the Catholic Church (with its FALSE DOCTRINE that WILL NOT LEAD ANYONE TO SALVATION) today?
    As we head towards the coming End Time government, who do we (as nations not Christians) look towards for spiritual guidance?

    The Pope of course, and the organisation to which Hitler belonged to; The Catholic Church.

    In both Britain and America and much of the world, the Pope is warmly welcomed. He is regarded by the state not only as a Christian but the Spiritual Head of the Christian Church (well, if only it weren’t for all those awkward Protesting Christians separating themselves according to scripture he would be anyway).

    There is so much that can be said on this subject as the evidence against the Catholic system is overwhelming.

    But what is more amazing is simply how well they have been able to whitewash and rewrite history in order to not only NOT include all the deplorable acts to which they are guilty of but to instead portray themselves as ones who received the persecution, siding themselves with the persecuted.

    Even though this organisation has no saving gospel and is guilty of countless deplorable acts , many seemingly saved Christians will still stand up and defend her, even to the extent of taking on the guilt of her past acts as though it were the history of the Acts of Past SAVED Christians.

    No wonder John was impressed when he saw her…

    Revelation 17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I WONDERED WITH GREAT ADMIRATION.

    For anybody else reading this post and wants to learn more, I recommend this website as a good place to start – (I always like to point out that I differ with the author on some points but agree with him on most – Eat the Meat and Spit out the Bones).

    Kent, sorry that my last few submissions to this blog has been on the Catholic Church I do read all your Posts and have been greatly strengthened with all your work.

    I hope one day to meet you and shake your hand :)

    Lots of Love

    Dr. Hovind,
    My family and I have thoroughly enjoyed watching your video series I think from the early 2000.

    I was shocked and dismayed to learn that you were in prison.

    I am very sorry for your earthly troubles, but justice will roll down like mighty river and that will be a great day in heaven.

    Thank you for keeping the faith and proclaiming from where you are. So much like Paul. Your ministry is far reaching.

    P.O.W –
    “Let My people go!” We are encouraged to speak more boldly for the faith because of your chains. We are bound with you as much as can be. You must rejoice, for you have been considered worthy to suffer for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Praise the Lord – we know who wins.

    I’m just starting ‘The Kennel’ as you’ve recommended. And I’ll put this ‘Bonhoeffer’ book on my list as well. So much to learn and so much to do.

    Thanks so much for what you’ve done and continue to do. We’re having a great flood here right now – it’s called the Kent Hovind materials saturate the town flood of faith! It’s time to kick some butts into action! HalleluJah.

    New snow today, from the mountains to the sea – wish you could see it.

    I just purchased you Creation Seminar DVDs and my husband and I have been blessed by them (good ammunition). I purchased 100 of the 2-hr evangelism DVDs for our church to hand out. We are thinking of offering a study at church with your seminar DVDs and notebook to spread the word in the church’s community as your speaking style captures an audience well (it’s hard to get the message through if the speaker is putting people to sleep lol). I get your posts on Facebook and found this Blog and was shocked to hear of your current situation. Your ministry is in our prayers! May Christ’s presence comfort you. -Stacy, Michigan

    Dear brother Hovind,

    I have seen your 7 lectures about creationism and the evolution theory on googlevideo and now I can say, I have finally found my answers for this fields, which for a long time occupied my mind. Not that I needed them to know, since I have a true relation to Godfather and his Son the Lord Jesus Christ, and I am sure these cases would have been explained to me after leaving this world for them, but it gave me a foundation for the scientific thinking people, whose visions are blocked (like Nikodemus´) and to bring them nearer to the gospels, until they finally can make their own decisions. I have sent some links to my other brothers here in Germany, and they really like your work, which you have done in the name of the LORD, too.
    I do not know why exactly you are in prison, but since I have seen your videos, I know, that the reason is surely not the failure in the temptations in which Jesus Christ was also tempted in the desert by Lucifer.

    Psalm 93
    1 The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.
    2 Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.
    3 The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.
    4 The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.
    5 Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever.

    Dear Dr. Hovind, I had a question about the garden of Eden.
    You said on one of your Creation videos you said you thought that
    Adam and Eve were living in the garden approximately 100 years
    before the fall. I was just wondering why they didn’t have any
    children during those years. I really appreciate your ministry and
    my prayers are with you and your family. Stella, Emory,

    Hello Dr. Hovind,

    I have long time been a fan of yours and applauded your faithful use of God’s gift to you. You’re an excellent speaker. Your wife must be a very proud woman standing next to you as you often show up your debators.

    Thank you for continuously inspiring me and my husband to live with a heavenly mindset and not be afraid to challenge others even when it makes them uncomfortable.

    Praying for you and your family at this time!
