It Never Gets Old… Still

August 26, 2011

It never gets old! This morning I asked my celly, Sammy who prayed to get saved yesterday, if he wanted to come read a chapter in the Bible with me. He was so excited! He said he would love to read with me.

Hunger is a great sign of life both physically and spiritually. Sammy and I started in Genesis 1 and made it all the way through the chapter in about an hour. He wouldn’t let me He ate it up! quit This twenty-six year old man is serving a four-year sentence. He is s-o-o-o-o-o ready to learn and let God lead his life. He was a music major until drugs ruined his life, like they do for millions! Please pray God will work in his life here to prepare him for whatever He wants.

This is quite a fishin’ hole! If you have never led a soul to Christ and then watched them grow in Christ you are missing the biggest blessing in the world! (Pro. 11:30) Won’t it be sad when so many get to heaven-alone? Ya’ll coulda had one if’n youda wanted one! (from Seminar Part 5)

Thanks for your prayers and support!

Kent Hovind

    FORGIVE THE TYPOS, AND CONSIDER THEM CORRECTED; I AM NOT YELLING BUT TYPE IN “CAPS,” AT THIS TIME, TO GIVE MYSELF A BREAK FROM A LITTLE STRENUOUS REHABILITATION FROM ILLNESS WHICH MAKES THE SUBTLETIES OF CAPITALS-AND-LOWERCASE TAXING, AT TIMES! LOOKING FORWARD TO MAKING THINGS EASIER FOR…YOU…, LORD WILLING, ONE DAY, REGARDING THAT… I SUPPOSE IT WOULD BE GOOD TO PUT A “REMOVE,” OPTION, FOR THE POSTER, TO REMOVE NAMES, ETCETERA, FOR INSTANCE THE NAME OF MY FRIEND. WILL YOU TAKE IT OUT, IF IT DOES NOT DAMAGE THE ENTIRE POST, YOURSELF, OR YOU MAY DELETE THE ENTIRE POST, OF COURSE, ON YOUR OWN BLOG!!!

    That is awesome, Sir! It is wonderful that you led that young man to the Lord. Another soul in Heaven! No matter the situation you are in God can and does use you! You are an inspiration to Christians everywhere. You are upbeat and praising the Lord even in a less than desirable circumstances. I will be praying for you!
    God bless you and keep you!!

    “He that winneth souls is wise.” (or thereabouts on the quote) I also remember that from one of your videos. I might be the same one(#5) from which you quoted the farm boy who had been tossing those hay bales and “got him a Yank’.”

    What a crusade you are carrying on, courtesy of our federal penal system, Dr. Hovind!

    Praise God for how the Lord is building up the Body of Christ through your life! I pray that our Lord will bring in the full number quickly so that you can get back home to your family. We Love you Dr. Hovind.

    I was just informed of your situtation and found your blog. Thank God for his grace! I am praying for you and your family. I was first introduced to your seminar in the 7th grade and you inspired me to do my first science fair project on Religion and Evolution! Your shows helped develop how I view many things in this world. My husband teases me because I always revert to “the flood” as the reason/answer to all types of questions. I am about to finish my Bachelor’s in Education and will be teaching grades 4-8. I play on using some of your ideas and curriculum in my classroom.
    On another note, how exciting about your cell mate. It’s amazing how the Lord works all things to the good of those who love him. I will keep Sammy and you in my prayers and look forward to more updates. Let you little light shine!
    Blessings

    Hey there, Dr. Hovind. :)

    You don’t know me, but God touched me through your seminars. They came in really handy when I was doubting my faith. Now I marvel at the number of people who don’t know that the Earth is young and the Bible is true. That “millions of years old…” lie is potent.

    I’m so excited that you’ll be halfway done in January 2012. I think anyone who stands up for the truth like you do is awesome. It’s pretty clear that God has a plan for you right where you are. You remind me of Paul. The reasons for your imprisonment are messed up. Our whole government is messed up because man is sinful. I can’t wait until Jesus comes back and fixes it all. Then there will be no death or taxes.

    If you are reading this page, please read/pray this with me:
    Thank you, God, for making Kent Hovind. Thank you for his ministry. Please keep him and his family safe. Please continue to use him in a big way in the prison. Please give him extra strength every day. Amen.

    Hello Dr. Hovind, since I saw you in action I tried to imagine my life if you had been my science teacher. Your not old enough but that is beside the point. As I stated on your petition drive, you have singled handedly managed to put to rest any doubt I may have had about the origins of this earth and it’s inhabitants. Because I no longer have to grapple with that, my faith is vastly increased in all areas of my personal walk with the LORD. The joy of a relationship which until now had not been on the personal level because of my own doubts, is now different as night and day. I am still in process of going through your videos so that I might retain more of what I should already know. I will follow your progress and am very happy for the ‘celly’ that God, in his love, put him in this place, hope he doesn’t take that the wrong way! I hope to meet you some day, maybe the next time you take on UC Berkley. May God richly bless you and your family!

    Dr. Kent Hovind! Praise the LORD! I’m so thankful for an opportunity to send a message to you! Our family LOVES your 7 part video series that we bought years ago when you visited Anchorage Baptist Temple. Now we live in Rhode Island. Our oldest son, Elijah (12 years old), is your BIGGEST fan!!! He has watched your video series SO, SO, SO many times! He can’t hear you enough. He would absolutely love to meet you, and Lord willing, he will get to this side of Heaven. We have shared your video series with many people, and often loaned them out at church. God moved us to a new church, in a new state, and Elijah has even shared your video series with his youth group. This year for Christmas we bought 100 DVD-Rs to copy video number 3 and give them away as gifts. I understand that we would have your blessing to do so, and Lord willing it will impact the lives of many others at least as much as it has impacted us. I am thankful that God has allowed someone like you be there to minister to those men in prison! “I will be glad and rejoice in your mercy, For You have considered my trouble; You have known my soul in adversities.” -Psalm 31:7 In His love, Mrs. Rebekah R. Stearns

    Hello Dr. Hovind, may God continue to bless and keep you, while you’re in prison and release you to be with your family as soon as possible.

    It’s very encouraging to hear of what God is doing, through you, for others; but I also understand how lonely it must be, without being able to see your loved ones for such a long time. I pray that the Lord would encourage you and draw your heart ever closer to him, knowing that God works all things together for good to those who love him, those who are the called according to his purpose.

    I’ve seen several of your creation seminar videos and I like the interesting and God-honouring content, (I’ve made several copies and given them away to work colleagues) – thank you.

    I know nothing about the U. S. legal system but God is in charge, not them, so I know that your times are in his hands and he will not allow them to keep you a moment beyond what is best.

    Your brother in Christ, from an insignificant village in Scotland (Boddam), but still thinking of you and praying for you,

    David

    My prayers are with you, Dr. Hovind. Thank-you for ministering to me some years ago. I have not forgotten. I pray that your family are all well and that you may be productive for the Lord while you remain in prison. I pray for your release, but, as well, am thankful for the lives that you are touching.

    God Bless!

    Brother Kent, thank you so much for sharing. You and your family are always in my thoughts and in my prayers. I look forward to seeing you and your family in the after life. As I see our country literally falling apart in corruption, I am reminded of people like you who have taken a stand for GOD. I am encouraged to press on, and fight the good fight of faith for Our GOD who reigns forevermore. Give my best to your room mate. We stand with you. May GOD bless you and yours in a special way!

    My friend just passed teaching #4 to me. I watched it, and searched you up, and watched 1 & 2 on Youtube. I’m still in the process of watching them all. This morning, at church, he told me that you, the speaker, are jailed. My heart dropped. So I came to search some more and found this blog!
    Your celly has the best of the best to walk him through Genesis.
    I started buying into the “period of time” thing and you helped with that =].
    And I always guessed that humans were getting dummer, not smarter. haha.
    You are a great man for the Lord. Amen
    I’m 24 yrs. Changing from your teachings.
    Stay blessed brother.. much love.

    Watching a video of yours and getting fired up ;) Reminded that one of the reasons I’m home schooling my children, and loving it, is because of your teachings. Could not imagine doing anything else… Glad to have found your blog, praying for you…

    Dr Hovind,
    Greetings from Australia, I was introduced to your mighty ministry (mighty through the Holy Spirit) during my recent visit to the USA. I stayed with Astrid Cole who I understand you know. Now your seminars are being watched by at least a few more Aussies.

    May God continue to bless and keep you as you suffer for His Holy Name.

    Dear Brother Kent, you are a fine example to all of us. Thank you so much for your videos (which have become so much more popular it seems as a direct result of your persecution) spreading the truth about creation.If they have tried to punish and silence you it has backfired on them big time. God does work in many ways and its wonderful that you saving souls in prison. The truth about creation and the lies exposed about evolution have played a major role in my conversion to the Lord and i hope will do the same with my family and friends. God bless you kent.

    hi dear brother hovind, i’m 22 yrs old and i can’t tell you how much your the lord through your ministry has blessed me with all the knowledge that the lord have gave you. i’m new to all this creationist teaching, in which i ‘am a christian now for 5 years, but i came to know the truth of christ and that he is sovereign on everything and nothing on this world whether good or bad happen without him ordered, decreed. in Isaiah 46:10 says that his counsel shall stay and will do everything he wants. to me and reading numbers 23: 19 where it says he is an unchangeable God and that he is sitting reigning over everything he has created, heavens, hell, demons, people, makes me rest in his ourpose no matter what happens in life and death in sickness and joy i will trust in him that he does everything according to his purpose not ours but his, i say this brother hovind because i see a lot of judgement on the christians, including your situation, that whatever you did if is true or not, i don’t care because my sins are forgiving everyday by the lord, so who am i to judge nobody i deserve hell just like the whole creation, but jesus christ who has redeemed me from the curse of the law galatians 3: 20 is not longer a burden but a joy because Christ who could only be perfect and do all what the law commanded “perfection” has done it for me and now i can rest that if i broke one of his laws i’am forgiving by his eternal love he has for his people, his chosen one. brother hovind may the lord do his will on your life and give you comfort on this trial of your life, i close with all of his people wich he died for will come into repentance and be saved, john 17, john 6: 65, john 10: 22-25, john 6: 44. none of his people shall perish and leave the faith that is in christ because “romans 8; 35-39″ declares 5 Who will come between us and the love of Christ? Will trouble, or pain, or cruel acts, or the need of food or of clothing, or danger, or the sword? 36 As it is said in the holy Writings, Because of you we are put to death every day; we are like sheep ready for destruction. 37 But we are able to overcome all these things and more through his love. 38 For I am certain that not death, or life, or angels, or rulers, or things present, or things to come, or powers, 39 Or things on high, or things under the earth, or anything which is made, will be able to come between us and the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    to the lord be the glory of our salvation which his elect will never lose and will be with him in the second coming. God bless you brother hovind i will be praying for you, your family and ministry.

    This is just a thought… Have you tried SINGING?!?!?! I mean hey it worked for Paul and Silas :-)

    Thanks for all you and your family have done through the years. Stay safe and you are in my prayers

    Dr. Hovind. I was just reading over this blog again, and check up on it from time to time when I wonder how you are doing. I have no idea if you can even read these comments but I just want to tell you that you are doing a great job and setting a great example by adapting to your circumstances and just serving God wherever you are. My life, and my family´s life had been changed radically when we were introduced to your DVD´s a little over 10 years ago. Since then, we have watched the seminars maybe 50 times and I have lectured Creation Science using them as a guideline. Keep it up and I hope to see you one day in South Africa!
