(UNCLE BUD) ROBINSON
1860 - 1942
Uncle Bud Robinson was born in a log cabin in the primitive mountain
region of Tennessee. When he was sixteen his father died, and
his mother sold what little they had and moved to Texas. In August
1880, during a camp meeting he felt deep conviction for his sin
and received Christ as his Saviour. That same night, while lying
under the wagon, he felt that the Lord had called him to preach.
He had no formal education, and stuttered so badly that he could
hardly pronounce his name clearly. Yet in the first year of preaching
he saw about three hundred conversions in his meetings. On January
10, 1893, he married Miss Sallie Harper at Georgetown, Texas.
For the next two years he preached on the Hubbard Circuit. The
remaining forty-seven years of his ministry were given to evangelism.
Uncle Bud had a wisdom all his own,
with unusual insight into the purpose for the redeemed man here
on earth, a holy walk day by day. His personal philosophy is
reflected in the following request he prayed each morning: "O
Lord, give me a backbone as big as a saw log and ribs like sleepers
under the church floor; put iron shoes on me and galvanized breeches
and hang a wagon load of determination in the gable-end of my
soul, and help me to sign the contract to fight the devil as
long as I have a vision and bite him as long as I have a tooth,
and then gum him till I die. Amen."
During his long ministry Uncle Bud
is estimated to have traveled over two million miles, preached
over thirty-three thousand sermons, was the human instrument
responsible for more than one hundred thousand conversions, personally
gave more than $85,000 in assisting young people with their Christian
education, secured over fifty-three thousand subscriptions to
his church paper, The Herald of Holiness, and wrote fourteen
books that sold more than one-half million copies. God used him
greatly. From Boston to Los Angeles thousands thronged to hear
him, charmed by his homespun wit and his unique presentation
as a preacher of the old-fashioned Gospel to the common man.
Uncle Bud Robinson's Message
We have the only recorded
messages that we know of:
1. "Honey In The Rock"
-Or- "Hospital Experience" - Same Message
2. "Second Touch"
These are really old, the
quality is excellent for the age,but should not be compared to
modern technology of modern recordings.
