Howard Carter

Those of you who are familiar with Pentecostal history, no biography of Howard Carter is needed. But for others, here is a very brief biographical sketch:
Howard Carter (1891 – 1971) of London, England originated much of the teachings about the gifts of the Holy Spirit that are commonly taught in Charismatic circles today.

He is famous for his book, “Questions and Answers on Spiritual Gifts,” first published in the 1930s. He helped to pioneer the Assemblies of God in England and chaired conventions at which his friend Smith Wigglesworth preached. He oversaw the historic Hampstead Bible School in Great Britain for 20 years.
Carter launched out in the mid-1930s, with a young Lester Sumrall under his wing, and with no financial support, on a world-wide missionary journey. Carter and Sumrall traveled on ocean liners, air planes, three-wheeled taxis, on camels, donkeys, and by other means of conveyance. Howard and Lester ministered across Australia, China, Tibet, Japan, Russia, in countless cities and villages along the way.

These two men even landed in Nazi Germany, at its height, where they watched Hitler’s legions march in lockstep. On this journey, they preached in 18 different languages with the help of 65 interpreters.

Howard Carter had a profound prophetic ministry that stretched over many years. In his lifetime, he gave 71 public prophecies. He declared that if even one of his prophecies failed to come to pass, he would never prophesy again.

He never had to stop prophesying, because all of his prophecies came to pass. Howard and Ruth Carter ministered at the Goodwins’ church in the 1960s, and felt a great kinship with Mom and Dad Goodwin.
Lester Sumrall wrote of his mentor, Howard Carter, that he was “a man of whom the world was not worthy.” 

With many peaceful blessings

I am an author and broadcaster. In January 2013 I very nearly died but our Father God healed me and I am still alive to tell the tale! I have written/edited several books about the Bible, God, the Holy Spirit and Jesus. My future ministry is focused on outreach. I do not just want to preach to the converted but to many people 'out there' who do not know Jesus as their Saviour and who are in great need of His love and compassion. Praise be to the Lord our God, our Heavenly Father
