Year-End Message from Dr. Hovind

 

Written December 31, 2011

The End of the Year ~ Time to Take a Look

I. The Look Back ~
We made it! The year 2011 is over. Who would have thought the world would make it this long? Lots happened during 2011 in the Hovind family, in the ministry outreach, and in my personal life. God blessed greatly! (Duh!) Against my wishes, I was moved from Georgia to Colorado. The prison camp here has 500 guys; is beautiful, clean, and safe; and has a great view of the mountains including Pike’s Peak 35 miles due north. I’m free to write, teach Bible studies and serve God. I’ve been blessed to lead about 20 men to Christ at this camp and am actively discipling about a dozen who are still here. Many of their names are on the previous blogs and they love getting letters!

Following the example found in Luke 2:52 of growing physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually, I use the end of each year to check each of those areas in my life. I don’t know why, (my two inch mattress, the mountain air, regular chiropractic :)) but I have actually grown since coming here. I’m now 6’2″ not 6’1″. Who cares? Well, my 5’0″ wife might as it might stretch her neck even more to kiss me if they let me go HOME! :)My torn rotator cuff is better but not 100%. I’m picking up some Spanish and French, teaching GED math, reading a lot of history, writing lots of stories and booklets, and am still very close to finishing the dissertation for another doctorate. It deals with the creation, the flood, and the coming judgment as outlined in 2 Peter 3.

I still get and answer about 40—60 letters each week and am s-o-o-o-o-o-o grateful for the mail and the encouragement it brings. In my 1,885 days of being locked up I’ve only had 2 (two) days where I got no mail! MANY guys here receive NONE! Psalm 142:4 says “no man cared for my soul” and that describes many of the men in prison. I’ll continue listing names of men who need encouragement and would be MOST thankful if you would write them.

Eric’s new ministry, God Quest, is producing lots of great creation materials! Keep an eye on him as he continues to do great things for the Lord! Hopefully you have read about “The Genesis Project!” This enormous undertaking may reach millions for Christ!

 

II. The Look Forward ~
What will the new year bring? Only God knows the future but He has revealed a LOT in His Word. One thing is for sure as I see it: December 21, 2012 is NOT the end of the world or the date of the rapture. Matthew 24 is very clear on the subject as is Mark 13 and Luke 21 and 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3. The “gathering together” of God’s elect comes AFTER the sun and moon go dark. That unmistakable cosmic event is mentioned at least 10 times in Scripture (Is. 13:10; Ezek. 32:7; Joel 2; Mt 24:29; Mk 13:24; Lk 21:25; Acts 2:20; Rev 6:12, etc) and provides a GREAT ‘anchor’ around which we can study eschatology. It’s sort of like a big Sudoku puzzle. I’ve been working on my study of end times for years and have had to change my theology several times. As I study the Scripture, I believe things will continue to get much worse on planet earth and we will be here for part of it. I suggest everyone who wants to know what to do read carefully God’s Word and do what it says. Win souls like never before in your life. Nothing else will matter in 5,000 years I assure you!

I hope to write many more stories, knee-mails, and blogs praying that they will help others grow in grace.

I continue to file motions in the courts pro se, hoping to exonerate myself in this case. I feel a little like Moses felt after Pharaoh turned down his ninth appeal to let the people go. Maybe God will have to talk to Pharaoh a little louder. Thanks for your Acts 12:5 style prayers!

 

III. The Look Around ~
Souls are lost, people are hurting financially and in many other ways. The need is great everywhere! DO SOMETHING for the Lord! There has never been a better time in earth’s history to serve God. FANAFI! (Find a need and fill it!) Persecution of believers world wide is at an all time high. More Christians have been killed for their faith in the last 100 years than in the preceding 2000 years! I suspect the great “falling away” is upon us.

 

IV. The Look Inside ~
This is a great time of year (Actually, any time will do) to look inside and examine your life and heart. (Ps. 139). God promised He would “hear from Heaven, forgive our sin and heal our land” (BOY do we need THAT!) if we would “Humble ourselves, pray, seek His face, turn from our wicked ways.” II Chron. 7:14. Look inside today and ask yourself, “Could I be part of the world’s problem? Will God judge America because of me and my sin? Is my heart right with God? If not, see and apply I Jn. 1:9! FAST! Are you a godly person? Are you trying to follow God’s will? Check your God given role and duties against Eph. 5; Col. 3; I Pt 3, etc. and fix any errors you see.

 

V. The Look Up! ~
God is not tired. He is not worried. He is not sleeping. He is not distracted. He is never caught off guard. He knows the end from the beginning. He is not late. He is not weak. He is not calloused. He may indeed need to let us suffer so others can be saved. He is not willing that ANY should perish! Even in judgment, He remembers mercy. Trust His promises. He clearly told us His will. Mary said it best in John 2, “Whatsoever He saith unto you, DO IT!” Her command was the BEST ADVICE EVER GIVEN!

May God bless you in the coming year!
Kent Hovind

    Dear Dr. Hovind,
    My kids and I drove to Tulsa (Owasso) to see you many years ago. We all enjoyed your wit as well as your thought-provoking teaching. I am very encouraged by your faith and zeal in the midst of your situation and I pray God’s blessing on you and your family as we start this new year.

    Thank your for all your encourageing and insightful material.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Hovind,
    I enjoy reading your blogs. Your ministry has blessed me greatly and more and more people are hearing about you and checking into things concerning creation and our history. ( I have a big mouth)
    I am excited to hear of your being moved to Colorado. My wife and I vacation in SW Colorado every year in the Ouray area. Absolutely beautiful.
    This may be a silly question, but are you allowed visitors, and what is required of one who wishes to visit? I would love to meet you and shake your hand. Then, you can one tell tell your grandchilren about the day you met Gary Fox.
    I am glad that all is well with you. I sincerely hope that the system will see its way clear to releasing you soon. Either way, you are a loyal soldier in Gods Army and are about our Fathers business.
    May the Lord bless and keep you and cause his face to shine upon you.
    Sincerely,
    Gary Fox

    Honest to God, I sometimes want to go to prison so I can hang out with you. Of course that’s nuts, but I admire what you do and have a lot of respect for the way you do it. I look forward to the day when you’re released and out debating evolutionists/atheists all over the country again.

    Thanks for the update and great words. I have kept in touch with your ministry for years, ever since we saw you at a Prophecy Meeting conference in AZ I don’t even know how many years ago! (I was a kid lol) I am sad you are in prison, but am happy to know God is using you there as well! My family has and will continue to pray for you and yours. We love your ministry and the message and are excited to see what is in the future. Blessings to you and yours, Tamara.

    Dear Bro. Hovind,

    I have been showing your video series to my church on Wednesday evenings. They are a blessing. I just found this blog through CSE, and am thankful I did. I’ve never known what the real reason for your incarceration is, and here you get it from the source. Thanks for standing firm. I will be praying for you.

    I feel like God has been telling me, just as you have, to spread the word of Jesus and the bible. I after watching your videos, I think the age of the earth can be a great tool. Could you guide me in how you approach people and start the conversation? I will continue to pray and ask for the Lords blessing.

    Blessings to you Dr. Hovind. Thank you for your updates. You are such an encouragement! The Lord is using you in so many ways. When I read your posts it humbles me greatly (which I need by the way). May the Lord continue to richly bless you in your labors for Him. Take care.

    Amen! Brother Kent Hovind. I bless the Lord for how he has kept you all these years. Yes, you’re right that things will get worst and we’ll be part of it. I pray the Lord will open more believers eyes and prepare us. This is the time we have to study God’s word more and memorize as much as we can. I thank the Lord for all the souls coming into God’s family in your ministry over there. God is God. Be encourged that though it is not a desired place to serve, His work is being done. I still trust the Lord that you will come out and be with the family soon. Please do extend greetings to the inmates there. I pray the Lord will help me so I can send sme cards to those you mentioned on here. God bless & keep you beloved brother in the Lord Jesus. My geetings to aunty Jo when next you speak with or write her. The joy of the Lord will remain her strength and your strength.

    Dear Mr. Hovind,

    A few weeks ago I fell through the cracks and tried to kill myself. My finances were to great and I wasn’t making enough money to support my lifestyle because I lost what I had while chasing what i desired. I was blinded in darkness and became empty inside. I had lost hope and while i was full of sorrow for the impact my decision would have had on my family and friends, I felt like I had no choice or way out. With the amazing support of my family and friends, I was saved from myself.

    My whole life I have tried my best to be a decent person, kind in nature and forgiving. I’ve always wished the best for everyone and fairness for all. But I know now that my issue was lack of faith. My spiritual separation was contributed to all the false idols and lies spread across this earth.

    My heart flows with love since being saved. Im currently unemployed but the financial issues I face don’t haunt me the way they did before because I have made a choice to devote my life to god.
    One night almost two weeks ago he spoke to me and before I would have thought I’d be a crazy person but he has a purpose for my life. While Im taking his cues day by day, I don’t know what he wishes of me as a bigger picture but I am without fear for he is with me.

    I just wanted to take the time to tell you how much of a blessing your work for the lord has been for me in my life. I am making my way through all of your seminars and using the knowledge I’ve gained to teach others. You’ve inspired me in many ways and I hope even in these trying times that the lord watches over and guides you.

    After reading your words for the ending of the year, I am pleased to know you remain positive and continue sending gods message and love to those who are willing to receive it.

    I hope this message gets to you. My email is [email protected].
    please feel free to write me if you can.

    With many blessings,
    Andrew Hawley

    Dr. Hovind,

    I highly admire your work. God has a plan for you no matter where you are. I have just watched one of your vhs videos and greatly enjoyed your presentation. I am a Biology teacher in a Christian School and have just learned of your ministry as well as your legal situation. I have watched and used other creation videos but somehow have missed your ministry. I have two children who graduated from PCC in Pensacola and have two more almost finished. I am a pastor as well as a part time science teacher. I pray God will richly bless you and help with your situation. I will learn more about your situation as I look more into your ministry. I will show your videos at school and church and we will begin to pray for you. God bless you.

    His way is perfect,

    Bill Vaught

    Dear Dr. Hovind,
    I am very pleased to learn that not only are you continuing your ministry while in prison, but the very fact that your in prison does not seem to change your resolve at all in being used of God. I pray that I can have the zeal and ability to be used of God in a similar way. I have been raised in the Christian faith, and I had developed a simple interest in the subject of creation versus evolution in the last few months. I checked out your seminar series from the library and was fascinated at all the evidence confirming what I believed! It is such a joy to know that someone has presented creation science as a very real and much more practical explanation of the universe’s origin. I will continue to pray for you and your ministry!
    Thank you and God bless!
    -Jason

    Dr. Hovind, I have been watching your theories and debates on YouTube over the last week. I am sorry to see that those powers that be have put you in their silencing list. You have from what I can gather been targeted like Kennedy, Dr.King, and others that want to deliver the message of the way of the truth, the light, and the life. I wish their were something I could do to help you out. I would bee interested in opening a creation Museum in Denver,Colorado. I believe that they are trying to distract you from the message, as opposed to anything else. Please, sir, focus on the message. Creation, their big lie. I believe that you are the man to get it out there.

    We love u Dr.Hovind! It is sooo encouraging to hear from u! You are always so comforting & yet God pricked my heart today reading your letter/blog for 1st time. I am a saved Bible believing Christian. But lately I tend to be walking around in what seems to be a spiritual fog. i am a homeschool Mama of 7!My husband works outta town all week & on top of that…nights. I tend to be typically laid back & easy going but as a downfall things pile up while we’re “learning” & then I get overwhelmed. it almost mentally paralizes me. Hard to function. I feel that I need to be more structured & try to form schedules that guide us as to what to do next. After a while, I get real antsy & frustrated from everything not going “as planned”. Pray for me to find balance & continue to move forward in being productive & growing in the Lord. I want HIS ways. it pricked my heart spiritually when you mentioned examining our own hearts to see if we had any sin that we needed to confess & get right! The Lord showed me that I have had more rebellion in me that I thought! Bitterness for my husband leaving me here all week to feel like a single Mama. And with such a load! I know that if I’m not right with my husband…then I’m not right with God! The whole thing just scares me so! It’s such a huge job & I ‘feel’ so alone. But I know God’s Word says I’m not & that “I can do all things through Christ;which strengtheneth me”. When we watch your DVD’s,everything seems to be clearer & we get focussed again. We don’t have a KJV Bible believing church close by. We’ve been driving about an hour to church the last 6 mo.& it’s mostly myself with all our children because my husband works on Sunday afternoon. I was able to recently lead a 70yr old woman to Christ & have been taking her. However, it is getting harder financially for us to travel that far to church regularly. My husband has been asking us not to go there because he doesn’t feel God leading us there(but he hardly goes anywhere because of his work schedule). He says he feels led for us to go to another,which I love,but it’s further! It seems we CAN’T go there yet. I know to obey my husband in everything. I’m just frustrated. Surely the Lord doesn’t want us to be isolated. Witness when I can around me. My kids pass out tracks wherever we go. :) I think it would be awesome to have a real Bible Believing Pastor out here! Maybe you could pray with us about this to happen! Someone asked my husband the other day how he felt about starting a church out here. He used to preach in our church years ago at particular times of yr. Just 15 min. or so here & there. He was a blessing to all & did real well in my opinion. But since he started working this job(I’m thankful for it!) It seems that he has not wanted to be involved with church activities. My husband had answered that fellow, “No Sir, I can barely lead my family. Much less lead a church.” I pondered these things in my heart. I spoke up to assure him that I had confidence in him if that’s what God wanted him to do but to no avail. I’m scared that my shortcomings on being the “perfect” homemaker has discouraged my husband. What if God holds me responsible for not being what I needed to be, and therefore prevented my husband from reaching his full potential in his walk with God? Is there such a thing? I love him & want the best for him & us. I wanna think with sound doctrine. I do value your advice but don’t wanna be a burden. Appreciate prayers & any words of help.If I need reprimended, I am open & teachable. Just want to stay focussed on the right things & want peace in my home & in myself. Thanks for your time, your sister in Christ, Cheryl

    Hello Dr Hovind.

    I am from southe africa and english is my second language,so please excuse my spelling.

    A friend of mine gave me those seven dvd set about the creation of earth and the age af the earth , It trully is amazing what you do for the world , I think I wathced it about 20 times over , it is interesting and for the first time in my life things starts to make sens.

    I like the whay you tell people ‘eat the meat and spit out the bones’ , the only thing is , in your work there is no bones , what I want to talk about is Niburu(planet x) .

    I would like to have your opinion on my Idea .
    I dont know for sure but as I read betwean the lines It loocks like if niburu is true and also on its whay (2012/12/21) , it makes sens to me , there is about 10 or more people like the maya that have Niburu on there kalender and also russia dont deny it like the US , so theres been said thet it could bring destruction to earth and its orbit time is about 3600 yoears , now my thinking is ;about 4000 years ago was the flood right, whe also see that ther was an ice age and that thear is a lot of metiorite crators on earth and that the earth is at an ofsenter angle , could it have been niburu that past by the earth about 3600 years ago thet coused the ice age (niburu hase a strong magnetic field and when it flew by close to aerth it could have wobled the earth so bad thet there have been ice ages because now you have the earthe tilting hevely side to side, exstream winters on the poles) and after the flood could the trail of debre of niburu be the couse of the metiorite crators on earth, just like you sayd , the eart is slowly stabelising acordingly the more ice melts till this day.

    Now the bible says thet the earth would be violently shaken once more and as I understand the new world order thing is wating for some cind of a catastrophy to set there long awaited plan in action.
    Could Niburu be the cause? Could nostrodamus be right?

    Dr. Hovind,
    I recently started watching your creation series for about the fourth time. Just thought I would let you know what a positive influence you have been in my familys life. More important than revealing the alternative to evolutionary teaching, you showed us how to be good Christians. I hope you get out of prison soon but in the mean time it certainly looks like GOD has a purpose for you where you are at.
    Thanks again and take care,

    Good day to you Sir, I just want to thank you for your work. I hope the Lord sets you free soon altho he put you there for a reason and it seems you are still doing his work. I think your ministry is terrific altho I was saved before I came across it I do use some of the simplest of facts when witnessing myself.

    Hello, Dr.Hovind. Your comments about the end times and some of your conclusions about them seem to coincide with those of Robert Van Kampen (The Rapture Question Answered). I’m wondering if you have read some of his books and what your opinion is. We had possibility to be present on your son’s debate in American River College here in Sacramento in 2010. You’ve raised a decent successor! God bless you. With love and deep respect,

    Hello!

    My name is Alex, i am from Russia. I am glad you OK, if it can be say that way. I am glad and i am thank you for your videos about creation, for your study about creation of our world. I watch you videos at least seven times, and i am upset, because i never see them before, and because i need so much times to see them to realise a simple truth – our World was Created! The root is here. If the world was created – there is a Creator!

    I will watch your videos again and again until i understand all information about the World and Creator!

    Now i am on “DVD-6: Hovind theory” where you say that ice was slide from North Pole and South pole to the Equator, and this was the reason of breaking Earth and “The Flood from inside”. Creator knows what was there, i only have a thinking what was there. And i think if it was a higher pressure of air in atmosphere (under the ice cover), it must be also the higher pressure of waters Under the Earth. And when the ice cover was broken and the air pressure goes down, the waters under the earth break the surface because of higher pressure of them.

    When i first time think about it – i decide to write you about it, and i am here :)

    Thanks a lot for your work, and know, that in Russia we have your videos and multiply them ;)

    God Bless!

    Brother Hovind, I am praying for you. I pray that the Lord will hasten your release so that you can pick up where you left off. I am sure that God saw a need for the people in the prison where they took you and He appointed you the vessel fit for the ministry. Not for one second do I believe that had God not plan it that way you would have been taken… even at the order of the highest worldly dcommander-in-chief. When God is finished with you at that prison(s) (and believe me, no man can interfere with His plan), please come back strong and cheerfull knowing that you have a vast audience that loves, fallows, and supports you as God leads you. Remember Elijah with the prophets of Baal, and Paul. God has many still in the land. Please read Josh 1:9.
    God bless you.

    Dr Hovind

    I find your debates more thought provoking than any science course I ever completed in High School and College. Despite becoming a non-Yaweh believer over the last decade I still look at your work to see there are MANY holes in the evolutionary theory.

    Your trip to Okaloosa Walton Community College back in 2001 was a great day. That seminar really riled up some of the attendees.

    Hope you are released soon. Would love to see you back on the road.

    Take a look at Ron Paul for president. If his policies were enacted you never would have been imprisoned in the first place.

    My fiance is currently placed in the same camp with Dr. Hovind and says nothing but wonderful things. Dr. Hovind has taken him under his wing and teaching him about faith. Tyler has never before had faith and has decided to ask God to come into his life. He goes to Dr. Hovind’s prayer group ever night it is held. Tyler has only been in the camp for one month now, but the changes I see in him are amazing. Thank you!

Your imprisonment was a direct result of you becoming more and more popular, combined with some of the political material that you espoused in your DVDs. People all over are waking up and realizing that they have been duped and hopefully this awakening will grow exponentially. You will be pleased to know you helped.

    Hello Dr. Hovind

    Shortly after I was saved i was shown your 5 DVD’s. They were amazing in helping me understand Creation. I never fully understood what happened to you and I only heard rumors from people and lies on the Internet. I wanted you to know that there is a revival of Interest in your material. I see a great deal of video’s being put out on YT by people who never lost faith in God or your walk with Him. It has been very encouraging to me since now I know now the real reason why the world made you suffer for the name of Jesus, and what you new about the NWO. We at our little church continue to pray for you, your on going ministry where you are and it is great that God has been merciful to you. We Shall meet finally in person some day. Thank you for being a light to humanity for God in this wicked and evil generation.

    All My/Our Love and Prayers to you Dr. Hovind ,your wife, your son and your on going ministry….Praise God !!!

    God Bless

    Just watched your first video and really enjoted it. I check out ICR materaial on line and get their mail so your info is not new: but it is well presented. Went online and saw the trouble you are in. I guess I expected it. When you are in public ministry, you can expect it. Keep up the faith. What should we pray the Father for you? In Jesus Christ, Howard Booker

    Mr. Hovind,

    Your Creation Seminar series is in my small, local library, available for checkout. That is amazing, because the staff is usually very humanistic in their book and video selections. Very few creation science resources are offered there. I love creation science, and I’m currently taking an online class through Tyndale Seminary called, “Biblical Creationsim.” My textbooks are “Genesis Flood” and “The Early Earth.” They’ve actually made this class part of my degree’s core curriculum. Can you believe that?

    I know there are days when you feel totally discouraged. I hope that you will not lose faith for even a minute. Know that you have done very much that is good, and your good fruit continues to bring hope to a world that desperately needs it.

    Regards,
    Fran

    Mr. Hovind, my family and I were given your creation series dvd’s to watch by our neighbors in response to our concerns that our 12 year old son would be taught that we came from monkeys since he was moving up to middle school this year. We are so grateful to them and to your family for making these seminars. It’s been revealed to us that we were still believing parts of the theory of evolution that we were taught in school even though we’ve been christians for 9 years now. Your videos have helped us clear the blurry lines they created and understand the dangers of this theory for our society in the past and in the future. I’ve also purchased and started to read the book “The Long War Against God.” I’m glad I watched your videos first though, the book gets pretty complicated yet I can hear you explaining things in the no-nonsense, understandable way you do so it’s easier to understand the book. I just read your letter for last year and i’m curious about your understanding of the rapture. you’re the first i’ve heard say that we will see the sun and moon grow dark and that we might be here for some of the things that are going to happen. My family and I were just discussing this at dinner. I’m going to show my husband your references and discuss it with him further. thank you for bringing this up. God bless you and yours, thank you again for all of your hard work and giving us tools to evangelize our family, friends and neighbors.

    I have often prayed about your situation. I have often asked God why He allowed this and would He please do something about it. The only thing I can figure out is that He has sent a delusion so that the people would believe a lie. Your ability to present God and His creation are very good. When the guy in Arkansas said he was going to change his teachings because of your convincing arguments, it made me wonder. I have never seen anyone stand up to you – not even close. Perhaps the toughest was Hugh Ross who had the support of the moderator. Amazingly, you were still very convincing and won the day. It breaks my heart that you are incarcerated. Have a blessed day.The post from Blake tells you everything you need to know.

    Just came across your story, sad in some ways but must be a reason for it. Also found your Creation Seminar videos on youtube and I am currently watching them. Thanks for those, Andrew from Scotland.

    God bless you Dr. Hovind!

    I can not possibly tell you how immensely your ministry has affected my life! I first saw your videos at the age of 12 and they completely captivated our youth group, we met at church week after week to watch a new one and it was so exciting as a new believer! Truly it engulfed us in our bibles and caused more bible studies than any other source I can remember! I’m eternally grateful to tell you that I’m now 22(soon to be married), and not one ounce of that excitement, joy and fervency for the Lord has faded! I thank you for being one of many faithful sources that encouraged my walk with the Lord, belief in the Bible, and love for his work! God Bless you brother and may he continue to use you greatly!

    Sincerely,
    Joe Carter

    Does anyone have an idea when his book will be released? I ordered it 3 months ago and never received it.

      The publishing of the book is being handled by Bro. William on http://2peter3.com, and not by the ministry.

    God bless you Dr Hovind. I have always been on the look out for Creation Science material ever since I first saw your videos screened by an American missionary in my home country of Papua New Guinea 12 years ago. Some of Paul’s inspiring words of comfort and encouragement originated from his prison cell. If you being handicapped somewhat are busy for the Lord, we on the outside are without excuse. We need to do more for the Lord. I have been truly blessed with your message. Keep going strong in the Lord. We pray for you too. “Dear God, please help and encourage Dr. Kent Hovind to be a shining light wherever he is and I pray for his health and safety. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”

    Thank God for people like you Kent Hovind! Who imprisoned and need strength, is strengthening others! Praise LORD ALMIGHTY! Light has lit in the darkness of prison. God’s ways are not our ways. May God comfort your heart.

    A brotherly poem to the “inside” from the “outside”

    Hey brother please continue to share the faith inside those prison walls
    As we share the faith outside in this great prison wall

    You see I’m on the outside, and you’re on the inside.
    But Jesus said we’re both on the same side. So where do we reside?

    The Apostle Paul said to his Gentile brothers, “In Christ!”
    Why?
    Because in Christ there exists no walls, no boundaries, no divides between us
    Just Jesus Christ
    and his love which binds us

    Therefore, brother Hovind, continue to preach Christ and Truth on the inside
    as we are inspired and enlightened here on the outside.
    We love you and we thank you,
    I mean what I say and it is nice to meet you.

    “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” – 2 Corinthians 5:17

    In Christ,
    Jeremiah

    Hi brother Kent – I only just found out about your situation and teaching – watched everything on YouTube – I am surprised they haven’t pulled them off – but Praise God they have not and people are still being led into truth by God through your obedience, commitment and courage. I commit to you to use the materials you have so diligently researched and so eloquently presented. Many brothers and sisters in the LORD hold you up in prayer – We beseech the LORD to set you free and to give you the strength and courage to stand up again for His purpose and Glory. Your strength brings God Glory like Paul you are a front runner in the race and a you have said – You have read the end of the book and “We Win” Love you my brother.

    Dear Dr. Hovind,

    I am a 15 year old girl and creation science evangalism and Bible prophacy are my favorite subjects. I have watched all your videos and am currently watching your son’s vidios on youtube. If you have access to the common internet you should watch Hal Lindsey his website and videos are really good to. I can’t wait till my birthday to get a KJV bible (I currently own a NIV). I hope you get out of jail soon. I still don’t understand what you even did wrong. My calss is readin Farenheit 451 and it has a pretty good message so far that people should not watch t.v. and pay attention to the government.

    Please write back :)
    p.s. I probly spell half of the words in this comment wrong

    Brother Kent,

    I have an eschatology FB group, and someone posted a link to your blog entry this morning regarding the rapture. I was encouraged to know that you had determined where the Scriptural evidence leads. For those who may wonder about the “heavenly signs”, or other references you cited, I wanted to post a study of mine which may sum it up:

    The “Day of the Lord”

    Popular teachers like to center their eschatologic position on 1 Thess 5:9:

    1 Thessalonians 5:9- “For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,”

    What is the “wrath” which we’re “not appointed to”? Paul tells us in verse 2 that it’s “the day of the Lord”:

    1 Thessalonians 5:2- “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.”

    Most believers would agree on this. These same teachers, however, go on to say that the “day of the Lord” (DOTL) is the 70th week (or “tribulation”). However, is that what Scripture really says? We can find the answer in two verses. Look at what the Lord said:

    Matthew 24:29- “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:”

    The Lord said that the heavenly signs come AFTER the tribulation. These are obviously the signs which Joel described in Joel 2:31.

    Now read what Peter said:

    Acts 2:20- “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:”

    Peter (in quoting Joel 2:31 directly) said that the DOTL comes AFTER the heavenly signs.

    Therefore, according to the Lord and Peter, the sequence is:

    Tribulation–>heavenly signs–>DOTL.

    Therefore, the “wrath” which we’re “not appointed to” is the “wrath” which is directly associated with the Lord’s literal second coming. For a description of that, read Revelation 19:14-21.

    One more point. Notice also that Paul describes the DOTL as coming like a “thief”. The Lord also described this:

    Matthew 24:43-44: “But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the THIEF would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.”

    Most don’t know, however, that the Lord later lets us know when this is in relation to the tribulation:

    Revelation 16:15- “Behold, I come as a THIEF. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.”

    This isn’t a verse which is taught in popular eschatologic circles, as it obviously creates problems for their teaching. Why? Because the Lord is saying this after the 6th vial, which even any pretribulation teacher would admit is immediately before the Lord’s literal second coming (and long after any supposed “pretrib rapture”).

    So if the “wrath” we’re “not appointed to” is actually AFTER the tribulation (again, according to the Lord and Peter), and we also see that the Lord comes like a “thief” at His literal, post-tribulation second coming, then the pretribulation teaching is dealt a crucial blow. But that should be as no surprise, as the only “gathering together” of believers which the Lord described is “after the tribulation of those days” (Matthew 24:29-31).

    Grace to you,
    John

    Hello Dr. Hovind …
    Nothing but admiration for you,your family and your work, ‘Bible and Health’ and the ‘Creation Seminars’ are brilliant! to think I almost went for ‘the gap theory’! .. of course the debate with the three ‘characters’ was classic royal chopping! [Heb 4:12]
    Knowing that in this world the playing field leans towards ‘error’
    my hope is that your home and back in action real soon!
    God Bless [Heb 10:35]
