Dear brothers and sisters please set aside time to fast and pray for the release of Pastor Kent Hovind who has been serving time on trumped up charges from the IRS. He was convicted of tax evasion for structuring which is withdrawing monies that are just less than $10,000 out of your own banking account on the same day. This dear brother withdrew said monies consecutively twelve days apart in 2005 to pay his ministry staff. He has been serving a ten year sentence for this “crime”, and the church properties which were not in his name have been unlawfully seized. He then under counsel from a knowledgeable individual mailed a letter of lis pendens regarding that seized property to warn any who might want to buy the property that it was under litigation. He is now being charged with mail fraud, for mailing said letter, which could result in a twenty year sentence, in addition they are trying to tack on another twenty year term. This man is my age and he hasn’t held his 8 year old grandson in freedom. He went to trial on Monday March 2, and final orders were given on March 9. I am setting aside time tomorrow to fast and pray for his release. I urge you to do likewise. Please do not believe the slander that he is being jailed for tax evasion. Please write your congressman to protest this unlawful conviction and the persecution of this innocent man. Please protest the persecution of Christians by the IRS and demand that Congress overturn the structuring law. Any of us could be brought before Caesar for that bogus crime. In standing up for him we are standing up for all believers all over the world and for ourselves. God bless us.
Here is a link where you can listen to Kent speak about his trial, imprisonment and persecution by the federal government.
Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Matthew 25:34-40

UPDATE: Kent Hovind is out of jail and living at home praise God. He is, however, expressing support for the heretical book The Shack. Here is a link that exposes his endorsement of the book. We must all be Bereans and check everything and everyone against the standard of God’s Word. He has been warned and exhorted and refused, at this point anyway, to repent. Keep praying. Amen.
