Restoring Courage Recap 4 with Highlights from GBTV!

Read Parts 1, 2, 3

On August 24th, 2011, Glenn welcomed the world once again to Israel. What began at the coastline of Israel and moved then into the outer city of Jerusalem, ended as the final Restoring Courage event moved to the Old City of Jerusalem.

After a blessing by Rabbi Riskin and the Israeli National Anthem, the Mayor of Jerusalem took to the stage to offer some of the show’s opening remarks. Speaking of the unprecedented freedom experienced by Jerusalem under Israeli rule, the Mayor declared, “Jerusalem will never be divided again,” a statement which received a huge ovation from the stage.

It was then that Glenn took to the stage to talk about the three faiths that all have such strong ties to Jerusalem.

“We meet today in a very small plaza, on the edge of a modest mountain, overlooking a shallow valley, by a tiny stream. This place, so modest, so small, is where God chose to first reveal himself to mankind. And God fills it with His majesty. For as long as man has known God, he has come here, to Jerusalem, to touch the mantle of the divine.

Three faiths. Three people. And while our faiths may take us away from each other, we always come back to Jerusalem,” he told the audience.

“This plot of earth may be tiny. But it has been large enough for three faiths… and the pilgrims and faithful who come here. It must be as big as God’s heart. And it must be open to all,” he told people watching in person and all over the world via GBTV.

As he spoke, the music of each of the three faith played that represented the Jewish faith, the Christian faith, and the Muslim faith.

As the music faded, Glenn welcomed people form all over the world to the Jerusalem.

“There are more than 1,000 people here, and there are more than 1,400 viewing parties around the world watching this live. Some of them are watching in places where our message of courage and freedom and truth is not welcome. Places like China and Cuba,” he said.

“People have risked their lives and reputations to come here today. They join us from Pakistan and Qatar. We have members of the EU parliament here, and other seats of government.”

“So whether you have joined us in person, or electronically, whether you are sitting in comfort and freedom, or under the darkness of repression, whether you are in a home, a hut, or a house of worship, please know that we thank you, and we recognize your courage.”

In the vein of Restoring Courage, awards for Faith, Hope, and Charity were given out to th Fogel family of Itamar (posthumously), the Jewish and Arab co-owners of Maxim restaurant, and Rami Levi.

It was then that Glenn took to the stage to give his final remarks.

(Read the full speech here)

The speech was very much the culmination of many of the thoughts and themes that Glenn has been building on since 8/28 in Washington, DC. Rather than tell people to turn back to God, he brought the faithful to God’s throne in Jerusalem.

While his message was one personal responsibility, a common theme, Glenn took aggressive new steps in shifting gears from a passive observer and commentator to an active participant and leader in a new global movement to encourage others to stand up, be active, and couple rights with responsibility.

“If we want to be endowed with rights – real human rights, we have to act with responsibility. We must not be comfortable with rights. We must be comfortable with responsibility. We cannot use our few short years on this planet enjoying our rights… we must do everything we can living by our responsibilities to our fellow man. Rights and responsibilities. The two go hand-in-hand, arm-in-arm, together,” he said.

“In the coming days, I want each of you to print them, read them, carry them, and make them a part of your lives. Share them with your family and friends. Remember all that God has done for you, teach these lessons to your children, and obey God’s word. And join me on a historic march towards human responsibility.”

Glenn plans also announced his intentions to take his message global

“Some people call Israel an apartheid state. I reject that. And so immediately following this program I will fly to South Africa, which is where apartheid actually existed. I will broadcast from Cape Town tomorrow morning to remind the world what the evil of apartheid really looked like,” Glenn said during the event.

“And I will learn from the people who conquered the hatred, ignorance and bigotry and who chartered a peaceful course for a new South Africa.”
“Then on Friday I will fly to South America to plead the case of human responsibility to a group of nearly 5,000 local leaders from all over the continent and ask them to join me in standing in defense of Israel, the Jewish people and responsibility.”

“Finally on Sunday, I will speak to 5,000 Americans in Dallas, Texas. I have chosen to end my week in the town where I will headquarter the charitable division of my company, Mercury One. Dedicated to the idea that one man, inspired by one God, makes a difference.”

“This trip will end where a global moment begins.”

    Yeah, Glenn Beck restored “courage” after running, tail between his legs, away from a challenge to debate from Van Jones. I understand why Beck is too cowardly to debate him: Van  Jones is smarter, better educated and more informed than Beck.

    Beck runs away from others who have challenged him to debate because Beck knows damn well that he is an uneducated, deceitful, reactionary propagandist highly skilled at throwing red meat to members of the Know-Nothing Party.
    Glenn Beck will not tear down the wall of isolation between him and his detractors.

    Now, as always, the sleazy ad hominem attacks will commence, ignoring Beck’s lack of courage.

    Glenn, If only 144,000 Israelites, 12,000 from each of the Tribes of Israel, except Dan(Irish) survive in these last days, what you say doesn’t sound too promising! It even is written that more gentiles will be saved alive in the last days than Israelites! Why is Dan excluded(REV. 7:4-12)?  AGAIN, NOTICE, NO DAN(IRISH)!!! Check you history because the Irish came here with the second group of Pilgrims when it was STILL ILLEGAL for Roman Catholics(HOME OF THE FALSE MESSIAH) to enter America! That’s true you know! Catholics were never legally allowed into America until after the civil war, so it seems that the “forbidden foreigner” of Deuteronomy 17:15 and the self-professed Anti-Christ(Marxist) over America(as England the REAL ISRAEL by the seed of Joseph(i.e.Gen. 48:16) andit’s NOT GOING TO END WELL FOR U.S. Glenn! Watch for September 16, 2012(HEBREW FEAST OF TRUMPETS(WAR), when I predict that Revelation’s chapter 11′s Two-Witnesses will come to witness against this MARXIST(ANTI-CHRIST) TAKEOVER through “THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS” as MARXISM(ANTI-CHRIST’S) LOVE TO ECHO! NO GLENN, IN SPITE OF ALL THE GOOD THAT YOU HAVE TRIED TO ACCOMPLISED, IT’S STILL THE DEVIL’S WORLD—Until the ONE QUALIFIED TO REPLACE HIM COMES AND DOES SO! AGAIN, WATCH! p.s. HEBREW is the ONLY SET-APART LANGUAGE(Zeph. 3:9, Acts 26:14, 1 Cor. 4:6) and YAHWEH(YHWH) is our HEBREW FATHER’S NAME AND YAHSHUA IS HIS SON AND OUR HEBREW SAVIOR’S NAME! DOEST THIS MATTER? IT DOES ACCORDING TO THE HEBREW! WATCH! P.S. THIS ALSO IS WHY OBAMA IS THE “FORBIDDEN FOREIGNER” OF DEUTERONOMY 17:15! Verbal women began man’s age their their “INTELLECTUALIZING” and NOW ARE ENDING IT EXACTLY THAT WAY! AGAIN, WATCH!

    I’ve asked you before, and you did not answer me… ARE YOU, AND DO YOU, CALL YOURSELF A PROPHET?
    Or do you make your predictions according to some guess work from your readings?
    A prophet is one who hears from God and repeats what has been revealed to him…. for the edification or rebuke to the church or a person.
    Do you have other prophecies that have come to pass?  I question you because just my reading tells me the witnesses will be in Isreal.  And- I am a prophetess. 

    Matthew 7:15 tells me to be watchful of false prophets.  I am WATCHING!

    Numbers 6:24-26

    Vicky33, I know you’re uneducated, uninformed, and cowardly… I also know you’re an idiot!

    I also know you don’t understand what consists of an ad hominem attack…

    You’re such a moron…

    Get real, get over your losing (lost) position. This issue was settled long ago and you were proven wrong as usual. Since Beck’s programs were planned and executed, taped considerably ahead of air date, how convenient for coward communist Van Jones to wait till the end of Beck’s programming to challenge Beck to a debate on his show (something Beck did not do on his show anyway, as it was never a debate forum).

    It is predictable that you would wait for such a long time to start pulling this stuff out again. Here you are again posting on a forum that is 8 months old, spamming your bugsite, up to your old tricks again…. baiting people. You are the master at baiting… that makes you the …..

    The only untrue, sleazy ad hominem attacks here will be from you Vic, as usual.

    There is nothing sleazy about truth, but we can’t expect you to know that because you are a big fat liar, Baldoni, Queen of the Roller Derby.

    Van Jones is a protected communist twit. I have seen his propaganda performances and not one thing he has ever said has reflected an intellect worthy of the smoke you blow up his skirt, Shirley.

    Van Jones is just your speed, a racist commie who wouldn’t know the first thing about America or Americans. Americans will not stand for Marxism, plain and simple.

    Maybe you want to lick his boots, but the fact you align yourself with Mr. Jones does not help him – in fact the more lunatics like you that jump on his bandwagon, the sooner it breaks down in failure. Please keep pledging support for Van Jones, you are driving more people away from him the longer you promote him.

    This statement is all we need to know about your detachment from reality:

    “Beck knows damn well that he is an uneducated, deceitful, reactionary
    propagandist highly skilled at throwing red meat to members of the
    Know-Nothing Party.”

    Please try to create more of this idiotic stuff. You never fail to make yourself look like a moron.

    I have always been a big supporter of Israel, and have done so in the politicians I have voted for and organizations which I financially support. I would like to personally and professionally be involved in helping the Nation of Israel and her people in anyway that I can.  Could you suggest to me how I could be of service to the Nation of Israel?
