The prophetic words of Paul Harvey from 1965

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Glenn played some incredible audio this morning on the radio program of radio commentator Paul Harvey from 1965. Glenn knew Harvey, and described him as “absolutely inspired of God.”

Last night on GBTV, Glenn explained to viewers that America has crossed over into new territory. “The progressives, I believe, have realized their dream. They have taken those baby steps,” Glenn said. “It is time to stop studying progressives.”

Glenn challenged those that don’t think the progressives have accomplished their goals to “listen to the prophetic words of radio commentator Paul Harvey.”

The audio is of Paul Harvey explaining how he would destroy us [America] if he were Satan…

“If I were the devil, I wouldn’t be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree—Thee. So I’d set about however necessary to take over the United States. I’d subvert the churches first—I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you please.” To the young, I would whisper, “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is “square”. And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to pray after me, ‘Our Father, which art in Washington…’

And then I’d get organized.  I’d educate authors on how to lurid literature exciting, so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting. I’d threaten TV with dirtier movies and vice versa. I’d pedal narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

If I were the devil I’d soon have families that war with themselves, churches that war that themselves, and nations that war with themselves; until each in its turn was consumed.  And with promises of higher ratings I’d have mesmerizing media fanning the flame.  If I were the devil I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, and neglect to discipline emotions—just let those run wild, until before you knew it, you’d have to have drug sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.

Within a decade I’d have prisons overflowing, I’d have judges promoting pornography—soon I could evict God from the courthouse, and then the schoolhouse, and then from the houses of Congress.  And in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and deify science. I would lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls, and church money. If I were the devil I’d make the symbols of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.

If I were the devil I’d take from those, and who have, and give to those wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. What do you bet I could get whole states to promote gambling as the way to get rich? I would question against extremes and hard work, and Patriotism, and moral conduct.  I would convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging more fun, that what you see on the TV is the way to be.  And thus I could undress you in public, and I could lure you into bed with diseases for which there is no cure.  In other words, if I were to devil I’d keep on doing on what he’s doing.  Paul Harvey, good day.”

“That is unbelievable,” Glenn said after listening to the audio.

Of the line, “I would lure you into bed and give you disease to which there is no cure,” Pat noted was way ahead of it’s time. “That wasn’t the case in 1965. We had no idea about AIDS—that’s amazing,” he said.

“When you listen to that now you say, those are our problems,” Glenn told listeners. “Those are the problems of our society. Those are the ills.”

Glenn pointed back to what he calls “Phase 1,” the transformation of the nation and to weaken it to the point of crisis. “If you listen to what he just said, that’s phase 1,” Glenn said.

Glenn explained that just how the devil wants your soul forever, that by creating a system for ours to collapse into, people would end up begging for the things America once stood against. “What you would never, ever ask for today, I’m going to make it your idea. If I’m the devil,” Glenn explained, “I make you beg for it.”

    WOW…..

    Paul Harvey understood how, using the devil in allegory, the Progressives or someone else could undermind and corrupt the system of America from within…not just the politcal, but the moral, ethical, ideological, social, religious, economic, and every portion of what it meant to be uniquely AMERICAN.

    He seen it coming and by him, God has showed us we have been warned even back then.

    Now the Progressives are done with phase one? Fine, then so are we, we move to phase two which is the taking back of the nation step by step and first get Obama out of office and commence turning the nation around.

    Glenn says there is a line of no return, and for the most part I have to agree; once crossed we become a communist/socialist nation…but there will be, based on our countries history one final option to carry out…a complete reset back to the core of the Republic and the Constituion.

    It may be that very remenant is where we have to return.

    If so, then may God be with us, for as of now, as always we must be in His hands, or we will go into the night as a nation.

    If we were not seeing and hearing these things with our own eyes and ears ( makes one think of the Lord saying -he who have eyes to see and ears to hear listen to what the Spirit is saying) one would think Paul Harvey was a great writer and author or fiction. Of course if Paul of 1965 were still with us today, a lot people wouldn’t listen to him anymore than the Paul of the first century.

    Except for the TV part, this was the French Revolution, Nazism, and Communism in Russia. They all did these same things: corrupted or destroyed Christianity.

    The reason for this is so simple it used to be taught in Comparative Religion classes. Progressivism in whatever its form is an Exclusive, Expansionist Religion, albeit a political religion that worships the “brilliance” of Man rather than a True Divinity. Either the State or The Leader is god and there can be only one. The only way they keep power is through terror and intoxication, that is to say the secret police and the camps,  the extacy of worshipping the State for some and the doldrums of alcohol, drugs and “free love” for the rest. Anything to make them too afraid or too apathetic to oppose the State.

    That’s why Christianity is the great threat. It teaches against all of these things. It offers a truly hopeful alternative to their hopeless system, compassion to their cruelty, so it must be destroyed so there is no alternative, no hope, but the bloody and endless road to Utopia.

    two thoughts, that i can write in public that is, jumped to my mind. the first was the fantastic book THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS by C.S. Lewis—and the other thought was this one. perhaps this was why M. Gibson had Lucifer protrayed as desirable,  good, ‘want/need to have’, etc.
    this is a ‘game’ that has been ‘played’ for eons–all one needs to do is read about Cain and Able-Noah, Moses, etc. and then put in various folks in current events to see exactly what is happening—AND IS SADLY WORKING. STILL  WORKING…….should seriously give one pause, you know???
    i honestly hope and pray that people will choose very wisly in this battle, and make NO MISTAKE —-IT IS A BATTLE, for our very freedoms, our country, our souls.

    I used to wake up every morning and always listened to Paul Harvey. I probably heard this very broadcast back then. In fact, I still drink Folgers coffee because Paul advertised it so strongly.

     I always waited to hear “the rest of the story”.  Folks, what we have seen since then is “the rest of the story”, It is right in front of us. If we don’t stand up TODAY, and change the “end of the story”, then we have nobody to blame but ourselves.

    “churches that war with themselves”.  Hmmmm…does the current war against mormons came to mind?  Whether you believe mormons are Christians or not – the mormons believe they are Christians and try to live their lives accordingly. Trust me – if Romney gets the nomination “they” will declare a not-so-holy-war on the mormons.  If “they” are successful in destroying the mormons - whose religion is next?  Either ALL members of ALL Christian faiths stand together or “they” will start picking us off “one at a time”.  United we stand – divided we fall.

     Also, I would argue that the world is still better off than it was 300 or 400 years ago. And since there weren’t any antibiotics, most ALL STDs were incurable.

    Paul Harvey was a man of integrity. I remember him saying before
    he retired from radio, that he would not advertise during his program anything that he, himself would not
    believe in.

    What will save us? During the day if we can all pray the
    prayer that Jesus taught the Apostles, “Our Father….” I know it will go
    directly to God. Perhaps there are more good people than bad people here on
    earth and God will have mercy on us. Just like the story of: “Sodom and Gomorra,”
    except, there were no people with faith left, everything was idles and living
    life in sin……, just like here in America, people are getting immune to
    sin.  God Bless America and God have
    Mercy on Us All!

    Just wondering why the immediate reaction is to say he predicted AIDS, when there are herpes, chlamydia, HPV, and Hep-B, none of which are new diseases and all of them incurable.

    He was talking about diseases that already existed… hence him saying “In other words, if I were the devil I’d keep on doing what he’s doing.”

    But it sounds so much more… dramatic and cool to say it was a prediction of AIDS!

    Everything else in his speech is the same… the commercialization of Easter and Christmas, the eternal woes of each generation thinking the one that comes after it is degenerate.  Your parents thought it about you, and their parents about them, and theirs before them.  It’s what was already going on in his time, today is still much the same problems as they were having.

    But OK.  He’s a prophet.  And in 50 years, when America is still having the same problems as it is today, then every single news journalist will be hailed as a prophet, too.

    Like this excerpt from an article: “The greatest single hold of “the interests” is the fact that they are
    the “campaign contributors” − the men who supply the money for “keeping
    the party together,” and for “getting out the vote.” Did you ever think
    where the millions for watchers, spellbinders, halls, processions,
    posters, pamphlets, that are spent in national, state and local
    campaigns come from? Who pays the big election expenses of your
    congressman, of the men you send to the legislature to elect senators?
    Do you imagine those who foot those huge bills are fools? Don’t you know
    that they make sure of getting their money back, with interest,
    compound upon compound? Your candidates get most of the money for their
    campaigns from the party committees; and the central party committee is
    the national committee with which congressional and state and local
    committees are affiliated.”

    Sounds pretty darn accurate, right?  But it’s from 1906.  How prophetic!

    It does not suprise me that so many neither see, understand or care about the things Mr. Harvey was expressing. What does suprise me is that so many supposedly moral and intellgent people have not sounded the alarm. And more suprising is that so many of those who have gained the most from America, the elite press, leaders of industry, entertainers, scholars and politicians who continue to reap the benefits of living in a free and democratic nation sit idly by while many of thier own lead us into the darkness.

    My heart yearns for the American goodness embodied by Paul Harvey’s work.  It’s this American goodness that the Left wishes to write out of history…..

    Certainly, God gave him his ability to understand and uniquely covey his observations.  If that’s what a Prophet is, then Mr. Harvey indeed reaches that mantle in this tiny snippet from what is a massive body of work.

    I would think it’s safe to say that these words are more poignant today than when first broadcast and have been heard by millions more today than that in it’s original form.

    I pray that the generation that grew up listening take his words to heart, and bridge the message to those younger.  Mr. Harvey knew, in his soul, the correctness of what he was saying.

    Paul Harvey was right on!  God tells us in his word how the world will get and be when the end times are near, by the signs you will know the time is near, the Bible says, well all the signs are here now!  So the Lord could come at any time to take those who trust him home then comes the 7 years tribulation on earth, unlike any other time!  Glad I won’t be here for that!  We need to wake up America to these facts, unfortunately the Bible tells us that they won’t listen, they will be so hardened!  That time seems to also be here!  Maybe some still will listen, but as the time is closer they won’t! I studied Bible prophecy so much and love it, I just see so much of it happening in my lifetime, it is so amazing.  I look forward to the Lord’s coming for his people before that terrible time on earth and the destruction by fire of the earth.  So I believe that we must be in prayer for this country, prayer is the strongest force on earth!  Lets all get down on our knees and pray for this country every day!  Thanks Glenn! Appreciate you so much!  God bless you and keep you!   Carol Heisler, Melbourne, Florida

At the rate of a million babies murdered each year, inside forty years I would have the guilt and conscience of America more black than Nazi Germany and Russia’s Stalin combined, and force my Enemy to judge her. He would be obliged to destroy her just so He would not have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.

    That promise was for Israel. We err to think that America has some special place in God’s heart because of who we are; we do not have the unconditional covenant of Abraham behind us. We are subject to complete annihilation for our sins, like Sodom and Gomorrah. We have no promise that our seed will survive. As a nation, we are not covered by that promise. Our only coverage is by adoption, and that adoption is into the tame olive tree, which is Israel.

    Given our record, and our horrific violation of God’s commandments, especially as it applies to the indiscriminate murder of fifty million infants approved of by society and law, I think we have reason to fear and tremble.

    I think two- thirds of our population will perish, and soon.

    You will not find in 1906 anything about murdering a million babies a year. This is about what the devil – literally the Enemy – would do. Your comparison of political corruption is a poor joke and a very badly played distraction to the evil that controls this nation today.

    There comes a point when Gods tolerance ends. If you find that funny, stick around. You’ll change your mind soon.

    I agree wholly. However, before we step into phase two of taking our nation back step by step, we need to prepare ourselves so we can know how to restore the Republic and the Constitution. We have to educate ourselves and our children with the principles and the knowledge that the founders knew.

    They knew and understood Natural Law; their society didn’t need their unalienable rights spelled out for them–they knew what they were; they understood the necessity of a moral nation, who believes in God, to keep a Republic thriving.

    What is the cannon of a Republic? What texts should we read and understand so that we know how to restore what we have lost? For example, if we want to understand Communism, we read Karl Marx. But what do we read to understand the basis of a Republic? 

    Here are a few I’ve learned about and am ready to study: John Locke, Cicero, Plato’s Republic, “The Wealth of Nations.” But what am I missing?

    Angie, you are already looking at the right place to study about the American cannon and the Constitution.  Glenn has written several books about the beginning of American thinking, ie; the Federalist papers (oops not his) his is __Glenn Beck’s Common Sense__ and is inspired by Thomas Paine.  Read anything you can find by our brave founding fathers. Also, Abraham Lincoln Is a good resource also for being American.  Such as:  American is not European nor Asian nor anyplace else on the planet.  I am American and very proud of it.

    this past christmas, a combination of no sleep and good wine, had me in sort of a silly pondering mindset and out came this hypothesis when discussing politics:

    that islam was responsible for aids because if you think about it, only they really have a problem w/the way westerners use sex in many aspects of life.  their view of our lifestyle and the culture of sex in it would prime them for an obsession and desire to destroy such behavior.  so i think they invented aids and what happened, sex is no longer free and innocent.

    well, my audience didn’t like that one and we quickly went on to the subject of preparedness.

    regardless, if you line it up, sex, money, information and everything that flows from “being informed” are all and have been replaced w/some radical’s view of the way it should be.

    According to the Bible, Who is the devil? He is also called “the dragon,” “the old serpent” (Rev. 12:9; 20:2); “the prince of this world” (John 12:31; 14:30); “the prince of the power of the air” (Eph. 2:2); “the god of this world” (2 Cor. 4:4); “the spirit that now work in the children of disobedience” (Eph. 2:2). The distinct personality of Satan and his activity among men are thus obviously recognized. He tempted our Lord in the wilderness (Matt. 4:1-11). He is “Beelzebub, the prince of the devils” (12:24). He is “the constant enemy of God, of Christ, of the divine kingdom, of the followers of Christ, and of all truth; full of falsehood and all malice, and exciting and seducing to evil in every possible way.” His power is very great in the world. He is a “roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Pet. 5:8). Men are said to be “taken captive by him” (2 Tim. 2:26). Christians are warned against his “devices” (2 Cor. 2:11), and called on to “resist” him (James 4:7). Christ redeems his people from “him that had the power of death, that is, the devil” (Heb. 2:14). Satan has the “power of death,” not as lord, but simply as executioner.
    So what are we to do?
    1 Peter 5:8 (NKJV) 8 Be sober, be vigilant; because[a] your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. 10 But may[d] the God of all grace, who called us[e] to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. 11 To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
    In other words: Guard your heart and stay pure in Christ. Resist temptation even to the point of suffering as Christ suffered much more. Keep your eyes on the prize, which is eternal life and love with the Father in Heaven forever. It may be tough but it will be well worth it. Christ has already won the battle so stand with Him and you will remain strong in eternal glory in Him. Christ is the glory! Amen

    I agree, Harvey had some powerful insight! How scary. However, the progressives have been hacking away at this precious nation since the early 1800s; so subtle by using the cause of social justice (which in and of itself seems reasonable and right). It was through German labor unions in the early 1880s that people started to ban together to fight evil capitalism and demand fair pay and good working conditions–it just gained speed and power after that. After all, it seemed right, correct, and moral.

    Need, need for survival is a very deeply rooted primal drive. The baby boomers have a need to survive. So, even though conservative baby boomers swear they love this country and the Constitution and the freedom they fought for so long ago, they will trade all for their SS checks, Medicare, and Medicaid–anything to keep those prescription drugs coming at nearly zero cost to themselves. Then you have a generation coming up who doesn’t know what delayed gratification is. They for some reason believe they are entitled to everything without any effort on their own part. It is the two generations caught between the other two who must provide for the two ends of the spectrum.

    There has been some global studies being conducted for some time that are alarming, and analysts in every country knows it. For the first time in human history there are more old people than youth. For the first time in history there is a generation that will not only have to provide and care for themselves and their children, but they will have to do the same for parents, grandparents, and possibly great-grandparents.

    Taxes keep going up, the cost of necessities keep going up. How can any one person provide for and take care of so many in this day and age. Does the generation that followed the baby boomers exist only to serve others? That generation has been groomed to believe they are worthless and unworthy. They have been groomed to submit to the baby boomers (who by the way control Congress). This poor generation has been brainwashed with political correctness to the point they cannot admit even to themselves how they really feel and believe. Perhaps they don’t really know how they feel or believe.

    Psychology has played a MAJOR role in seizing control of the people–in more ways than one. Psychology has been used to write new legislation. It was through Psychology and mental illness that the government was able to gain control over health care in America. Never before had our government been able to determine care, order someone to receive care, or order someone to be medically institutionalized with complete loss of liberty and the basic rights most of us have come to take for granted.

    It has been a slow, insidious process. And, there were some who came before Paul Harvey who saw what was going on and tried to warn against it. But, their warnings fell on deaf ears too. People kept thinking they would always be the light of liberty for the world. Now, even Pakistan is more free than the land of the free. And we just continue to stand by and allow the government (federal, state, and local) remove our right to speak freely. We continue to allow them to take from us what has cost us our sweat, our effort, our energy, our concentration–they  take the money that is the very symbol of the labor we generate.

    I am waiting. I am wondering. Who will be that first one who will willing be the sacrificial lamb, the martyr that will get the ball rolling to reclaim the America we once were. I think it’s going to get nasty before it gets better. Go ahead, vote in Romney, Santorum, or Gingrich. Sure, they’ll get Obama out of the White House, but it won’t matter — they are Obama, different names, different faces, but they are the same progressive ideology. You’ll see. God help us, I wish people would pull their heads out of the arses and throw their support behind the only man who is willing and able to lead us back to the Constitution–Ron Paul.

    But no, everyone wants to be on the winning team, so they’ll vote for the one person they think has a chance to win. Sometimes I think my fellow Americans deserve what they get. You can all go to hell if that’s what you really want, just don’t take me and mine with you.

    Harvey warned you, Beck warned you, and many others have warned us all. Yet, Americans continue to be mindless sheep led to the slaughter–led by SSI, Medicare, Medicaid, Food Stamps, AFDC, college grants, bailouts for homeowners, cash for clunkers and so on and so forth. Ask, hold out your hand, and you shall receive. All you have to lose is your liberty.

    If I was the Devil I would make people believe I was the last of all of God’s prophets: that I knew the future; that I knew who was going to Heaven or to Hell; that the rich (the chosen) must get richer before the poor can ultimately eat at God’s banquet table.  

    I will make my new covenant with media moguls for they are my voice and heirs. No longer should any of my sheep listen to their pastors, priests or rabbis.  Neither should they listen to their conscience, their government, for all are disciples of the Liar of liars.  But I have sent you ones that come from my bosom, their souls pure as snow, for the greatest evil committed on my beloved flock is to have convinced them that they possess free will.

    My Commandments are clear:
    If you love me you will not pray to idols, like the Golden Calf: gold, youth, sex. What you spend your health on is your god. 
    You will not kill, for I prefer the one that turned his other cheek to be spat upon.
    You will not commit adultery for a marriage vow can never be broken, even by an official divorce.
    You will not covet thy neighbors property: keeping up with the Jones is not my schtick. 
    You will honor your mother and father, and will not leave their side until you marry.
    You will like your neighbor for they too carry my seed, and how you treat them and say about them, is how you will be treated by me. If you do not forgive you will not be forgiven.
    You will not sit idle, letting my gift of intelligence and insight lay fallow, but you will continue to look to better your environment and stop killing my creatures for mere pleasure and gluttony. 
    Your body is a temple, do not feed it full of artificial energy drinks, and medications that will just make you stop thinking, drowsy: deaden your free will, and make you follow anyone who promises the moon, the sun and the stars.
     Better to die childless than be beholden to anyone but me.  For I am a jealous God.

    I would put forth the Bible. The rise and sucess of western civilization came from Christianity. Religious persicution drove our forefathers to these shores. Withought His providence we would not be a Nation, much less a source of freedom in the world. It is plainly evident, the more we shun Him and His teachings in this Nation, the more we become like the rest of the world.

    Rom 3: 21 But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify.22 This righteousness is given through faith in[h] Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.   Those are not my words Mark.  I will not get into foolish speculation with you .  I believe that in Christ we have the forgiveness of sin . The scripture in Chron . says ” if my people ”   In Christ were are His people.   I also believe Christ is the fulfillment of the covenant.  I do not think that the USA has a special place in God’s heart but I KNOW that His children do. God Bless You and keep you.  I will no longer participate in further discussion in this venue.

    We Christians are indeed Israel. Spiritual Israel. Paul said as much. Read the entire chapter 3 of the book of Galatians.

    Having said that, you are absolutely correct, in the sense that God won’t tolerate disobedience, not by anyone, child of God or not. We will never mock Him without paying the price.

    All of us are subject to complete annihilation, though. Every last person on earth. It’s all according to obeying all His commandments. All ten of them. Not just nine, and leave the fourth out. James chapter 2 shows that they stand together as a unit.

    Oh, and that sabbath God talks about… it’s the one He picked, the seventh day. Not the one man substituted, the first day Sunday.

    Great example of the blind leading the dumb!

    This version is an edited version from 1996 to reflect current events, thus the amazing reality to it. While the original version is also very compelling it did not foretell the future.

    1964 and original version

    If I were the Devil . . . I mean, if I were the Prince of Darkness, I would of course, want to engulf the whole earth in darkness. I would have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree, so I should set about however necessary to take over the United States. I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you please.”   To the young, I would whisper, “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is “square”.  In the ears of the young marrieds, I would whisper that work is debasing, that cocktail parties are good for you. I would caution them not to be extreme in religion, in patriotism, in moral conduct. And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to say after me: “Our Father, which art in Washington” . . .
    If I were the devil, I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull an uninteresting. I’d threaten T.V. with dirtier movies and vice versa. And then, if I were the devil, I’d get organized. I’d infiltrate unions and urge more loafing and less work, because idle hands usually work for me. I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. And I’d tranquilize the rest with pills. If I were the devil, I would encourage schools to refine yound intellects but neglect to discipline emotions . . . let those run wild. I would designate an athiest to front for me before the highest courts in the land and I would get preachers to say “she’s right.” With flattery and promises of power, I could get the courts to rule what I construe as against God and in favor of pornography, and  thus, I would evict God from the courthouse, and then from the school house, and then from the houses of Congress and then, in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and I would deify science because that way men would become smart enough to create super weapons but not wise enough to control them.
    If I were Satan, I’d make the symbol of Easter an egg, and the symbol of Christmas, a bottle. If  I were the devil, I would take from those who have and I would give to those who wanted, until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. And then, my police state would force everybody back to work. Then, I could separate families, putting children in uniform, women in coal mines, and objectors in slave camps. In other words, if I were Satan, I’d just keep on doing what he’s doing.
    Paul Harvey, Good Day.

    Angie – among the works I would suggest for the Republic itself are the Federalist Papers (of the founders), Common Sense, The Bible, and another would be “Rise and fall of the Roman Empire” along with readings of the Presidents.

    Ones to read that explain the enemy we face, progressive and socialist include those by Woodrow Wilson and Teddy Roosevelt.

    Read the papers and works of MLK, Lincoln, the various Founders and the early Presidents.

    Look into the history of the first pilgrims who came to this nation, before it was ever a nation; find the why they left the old world to come here.

    Here is the easiest, most fundamental testimony one can study about the Republic:

    Ask any imigrant who has escaped communism/persecution/war/etc. and ask them to tell you why they came here, what they endured and what the nation means to them.

    They are the best study you can make.

    It’s very simple when you get right down to it… America was inspired, founded, and protected by God.  When Alexis de Tocqueville toured America, and wrote “American Democracy” he was astounded by strong Christian values and morality… and recognized that as its strength.  Evil knows this, and I calls ‘em as I sees ‘em…Communism is evil, liberalism is evil, progressiveism is evil, Muslim/Islam is not a religion, it is pure evil.

    You cannot reason with evil… you must face it head on and destroy it.

    sad to know our country has allowed satan to seep into the family. tv shows, music, schools, video games, books, etc… where has all the morals gone ? see people satan is real ! our Savior is real ! our Heavenly Father is real ! i know the only way to get the change is to change the man whom is our president…kick his sorry backside OUT of the chair.
    our country needs prayers, honest people, leadership with morals and strengths.
    yes it is the precursor for the 2nd coming…so people hold onto your seats it is going to be a very bumpy ride.
    i pray and study the scriptures…they were written for our day to learn from. satan had his control of those whom didn’t want the holy bible translated but the strength of honest men came through even though they lost their lives because of the arrogant. the book of mormon was translated for our times…Joseph Smith was murdered because he stood strong and stood his ground unchanging. Honorable men and women have brought forth knowledge for goodness. this is the time to listen to good leadership.
    socialism is obama’s game plan. the obama care is destroying our health care system. I pay MORE for insurance because of that plan. he wanted those whom actually have insurance to pay more for healthcare because there are those whom refuse to work for a living and pay their way through life. didn’t the lesson of the grasshopper and the ants mean anything ? we work for what we need, we help when there are those in need whom are trying. for those whom sit back collecting because they are lazy….your time will come when those of us whom have been paying your way no longer have the income and you will be out of care, food, cars. so be a strong American and work for what your ancestors worked for !
    The seasons are changing the world is changing…be prepared for the return of our Savior when the world is ripe and ready…we don’t know when but i can guarantee the times are obvious. i have a few family members running along with satan. sad to see them because they are truly unhappy but they put on a good face but are hurting inside because they know they are choosing wrong. remember the line from ‘Indiana Jones’- “choose wisely”…ok so DO IT.
    pray !! do not allow those following satan to control your life and this country

     The only way God will see us as obedient is through the blood of Christ.  In Revelation, only those clothed in the blood of the Lamb enter into the kingdom. 144,000 or otherwise.  You are right.  The nation of Israel is a gentile nation like all others.True Israel is the church.  I agree about the Sabbath, but we cannot keep those commandments out of our own righteousness.  The only thing we can do is continually look to Christ, and this is through daily prayer and communication with Him.

    The evil in the churches is much more insidious than that. The devil says “you church people are great; feel free to not care for the poor: they deserve their situation.

    “At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it? Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant to step the ocean and crush us at a blow? Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia, and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest, with a Bonaparte for a commander, could not by force take a drink from the Ohio or make a track on the Blue Ridge in a trial of a thousand years.
    At what point, then, is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, If it ever reach us it must spring up amongst us; it cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen we must live through all time, or die by suicide.” Abraham Lincoln – Lyceum Address 1838

    Other things have changed dramatically too. Once everyone had a sense of decorum, nowadays people will insult you and talk to you in the worst way if they disagree with you or if you misuse the English language or misspell a word. At work no one smiles, everyone is short and impatient with zero tolerance. Stores set rules for their customers to follow then treat them rude and indifferent. One such  store Walmart routinely checks your packages at the door. This might be fine if the checkouts were not but a few feet away. They could stand at the register and observe what you do and that alone would be more decent. Signs at stores command where and how to stand.  The litany could go on forever. but suffice to say life has become harder due to this trend.

    Good question. According to the Wiki article on metal detectors (which seemed well-researched), metal detection technology was adapted to screening passengers for weapons after a rash of airplane hijackings in 1972. I couldn’t find any info on when people started training dogs to sniff out drugs. Perhaps someone who was in law enforcement in 1965 can tell us if that existed then as well as when metal detectors were added to courthouses and such. But really, most of what Harvey mentioned could have been predicted by 1965: there were other incurable STD’s before AIDS, e.g., herpes; God was already being taken out of the schools after two landmark cases (’62 and ’63); molestation of children by priests was hushed up but not unknown. However, there is linguistic evidence: I don’t think the word “swinging” had a sexual connotation yet in ’65, the year Roger Miller had a big hit called England Swings, referring to the lively British music and fashion scene. I was a teenager and a music maven and noticed whether lyrics were suggestive or not; I thought the Miller song quite innocent. I don’t recall “swinging” having the sexual meaning until the ’80′s, but perhaps someone else knows if it was being used in the ’70′s. All told, I’d lean toward the recording dating from after 1972.

     The Sabbath was referred to in the Old Testament.  The beginning of the week on our calendar is actually Monday, making Sunday the Christian Sabbath.  But really, what does it matter?  I worship every day, not just one.  Those who only worship one day a week are just hippocrates and not true Christians.

  • Anonymous

    Actually, the word is hypocrites…

    That is a common error, equating God’s Sabbath with the first day of the week. God never changed the day. Man did. All the ten commandments are a set, and cannot be broken up into the nine commandments. My pastor is offering $10,000 to anyone that can show where God changed the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday.

    You ask why does it matter? Plenty. Jesus said If you love Me, keep My commandments. Since He is God, then His commandments are the Ten commandments. (That was New Testament). This website will help you understand: http://thetencommandments.webs.com/

    Worship is not the whole point. It’s rest, from work, labor. You are correct in that we should worship God every day. He gave the Sabbath, in part, to see if we would be obedient to Him. look it up.

    A few days ago I came across a YouTube video showing Charlotte Iserbyt. She wrote the book, “The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America” in 1999. She worked as a teacher, then in administration and ultimately became a whistleblower. She exposed the policy now in play that was put into play by Carnegie and the Ford Foundation ( and the New Word Order folks) to take over countries by brainwashing our children thru each generation. Her book is now offered free by her (she is in her 80′s now and still fighting against this) as a PDF on her website at http://www.deliberatedumbingdown.com . Check it out.

    I am not afraid of this just VERY sad. I’m sorry to see where we have come to and how blind MOST people are and how hard it is to get them to listen (I don’t preach, just invite or coax). Thank God I was renewed in my faith in the last couple of years – I was given a loving chance to be saved yet and I am still struggling to get myself more dedicated – life as we know it seems to get in the way (part of the devil’s plan, I’m sure) and distracts me from studying and preparing as much as I should but I do pray daily and often – for guidance and strength too. If this is the coming of the End Times, I would be surprised and in awe that WE are the ones to be here to see it, even if it is emotionally painful. (It has been predicated for so long.) God protect Glenn, his crew, all of their families and those like them. Amen.

    To Mark and Yeshuaswoman, I bet you both are dear to God. It’s obvious to those who read scripture, those that read scripture. Let’s just be careful about wisdom. As iron sharpens iron one man sharpens another.[Christians sharpen each other].  Wisdom and discerning  have nothing on grace. As I got out of the Catholic church and personal righteousness, it was so refreshing to see grace. [I'm still trying to learn grace daily]. God bless you both.

    mark, God’s people can play a huge role in the way the country goes. If we will truly repent and seek God’s help on how to turn America back to Him and to be a just Government like it used to be I believe He would Help us. I also believe it will require us working with God. And their is another scripture in Psalms that says blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.(Paraphrasing) It doesn’t say just Israel its any nation that has Him as God.Nebuchadnezzar at one time had the Lord as his God and got prideful for his success so God punished him… And we know that God punished those whom who loves so he took him to a low position to help him understand his mistake. Nebuchadnezzar was not Jewish but He did believe in God. Im just trying to show you that God can bless nations that will turn to Him for help.Thats how our founders were so blessed and we have been but the further the nation goes away from God the more trouble we get into as a country. I just pray that we do not have to be brought as low as he was brought to realize how wrong we were to leave God and forsaking the just laws that we have.

    Another thing the devil would do, is convince everyone that he does not exist. The Progressives are clever, but not nearly clever enough to have designed so complete, so devastatingly and insidiously powerful an agenda as the one that is sweeping our nation. It takes dedicated prayer and decisive action– on community as well as state level — to fight those who would destroy the moral fiber of our people.

    This is nothing new.  The same things were said before in The Naked Communist years before Harvey spoke them.  Also consider that this was the 1960s during the height of social upheaval.  Despite the craziness people remembered that this is America and we found peaceful ways of working it out.

    When I read this and saw the references to the Devil it made me think of a song.  The song, performed by Don Henley is called “The Garden of Allah”.   It is presented as a modern day fable where the Devil walks the street of a city at night and found that he has become obsolete, that man has perfected evil without him.

    Or as I once heard:  “Fear not the devil without, fear the far more dangerous one within.”

    Paul Harvey didn’t wear his religion on his sleeve, so to speak, but his constant wisdom seemed always rooted in the firmness of truth.  His words were prescient of our day and I fear of the days to come. Today is Good Friday and no longer is the culture even aware of the meaning of this most somber and Holy of day  The devil has done his work well and I can only urge ALL to turn their hearts to truth.  Seek it in all areas of your life. For only in truth will the hearts of men and women conform to the heart of God.

    It does not matter what specific day of the week it is on, do you think that when the world is plunged into chaos and confusion, we will be able to keep track of the date?

    No, the Sabbath is an idea, that you set a day away from labor to appreciate God and his work. It is the idea that once you’ve taken care your Earthly needs you devote to celebrating the Heavenly.

    The Monday – Sunday week system was created by man. All God said was to rest on the seventh day, which means, for 6 days of work, at least 1 day of worship. That’s all there is, it’s that simple.

  • Anonymous

    Absolutely we will be able to keep track…
    You are arguing both sides. On one hand, you say that it is indeed the seventh day, then on the other, you say that it does not matter what specific day of the week it is on. Sorry, but the scriptures disagree with you.
    Also, the sabbath also means to not do any work for wages. It’s a tough one to obey in today’s world, but doable. You are very much correct, though, in saying that you set a day away from labor to appreciate God and his work.
    That day just happens to be the seventh day of the week.

    The use of the devil as an allegory? No, you are missing a piece of the puzzle, snowleopard. Do you see how the progressives all seem to work as if someone is orchestrating them, whispering all the right commands in their ears, as it were, so they can work in unison? What communication system have the progressives been using all these years, and who actually has the master plan that they are following?
    Unfortunately, until you have been given the ability to see, through spiritual rebirth and regeneration, your eyes can be blinded from the truth by the darkness. You see the physical, but not the spiritual behind it.  Please read this familiar passage to see if what I am saying is founded in truth.

    John 3:1  ¶There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
    2  The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
    3  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
    4  Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
    5  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
    6  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
    7  Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
    8  The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
    9  Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?
    10  Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
    11  Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
    12  If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
    13  And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
    14  And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
    15  That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
    16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    17  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
    18  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
    19  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
    20  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
    21  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

    Compare what I said, to what Jesus said, then do something with God in verses 15 to 17 in order to see the rest of the story:

    Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
    Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
    Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

    15  That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

    16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that
    whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting
    life.

    17  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    God tells us that Satan is the prince of this world. This world will never overcome evil until Jesus Christ returns. With that said I believe God is aware of what is going on and he allows it to continue. What is happening in this country is the result of what the majority of us have chosen. God has given us a choice and we have chosen as a country to take the evil path. As far as God saving this country because we ask him in prayer to do so will not necessarly happen. We also ask God to spare our love ones from death but eventually we all die. There are some things that God will just not do. There is an evil presence involved in the highest levels of our government and they are being guided by one who has existed longer than time itself. We will never defeat him or his demons, that is why our only hope exist after we leave this world which is determined by the decisions we make while we are in this world.

    [I, and this recently found web bit, agree with Paul Harvey! Thanks for The Blaze!]

      THE REAL CREATORS OF THE SUBURBS
     
     ( I experienced all this while trapped in a large American city.)
     
        The suburbs are booming, but not fast enough. Yessir, you ghetto folks
     in inner cities have started a good thing, but there are still lots of acres
     outside the cities without any houses on them. So you’ve gotta move into
    “untouched” city blocks and do the following:
        Throw trash everywhere. You’ll insure that your friends who pick up trash
     and distribute free rat poison packets will keep their jobs. And folks can
      predict the weather by the direction the trash is blowing!
        Walk down the street. Better yet, rhythm down it. And when I say street
     I don’t mean sidewalk. Save sidewalks for your friends on cycles. Besides,
     it’s hard to fit many cursing, screaming, drinking, pot-smoking kids on a
     sidewalk, and it’s also hard to spot keys and other things left in cars when
     you’re walking on a sidewalk!
        When walking down a street, turn your head when you hear a car coming
     and stare at the driver. For all you know, it might be one of your enemies
     out to get you. On the other hand, it might be only your neighbor and all
     that hateful staring might make him want to move out.
        Be sure to beget lots of unloved, unsupervised, unwashed two-legged
     “Obama welfare meal tickets” – either through wedlock or (preferably) out of
     wedlock. And let them often ring doorbells, begging for money.
        Turn quiet streets into noisy jungles. Have a blast – a
     long blast with your car horn under your neighbor’s window at
     3:00 a.m. Let folks know who the real honkies are! Blow your horn when (1)
     you see the police coming (2) you want to buy some dope (3) you want to sell
     some dope (4) for any other reason. Play your stereo so loudly that folks can’t
     hear sirens going to the latest holdup or arson. Be noisy, man, noisy!
        Be cruel to animals, especially “man’s best friend.” Tie your dog on a
     short chain under a blazing sun with no water or food or love or license or
     dog shots. Make him as mean as you are. Better yet, let your dog run loose.
     Neighbors love to find freshly killed cats (after hearing their screams) and
     other goodies on their lawns. Pit one dog against another in bloody “canine
     cockfights” while friends lounge on car hoods and cheer and make bets! And
     what madness is it where folks move out and abandon pets in the house,
     leaving them nothing to eat but their own droppings? This happens often in the
     ghetto, and almost no one will help the animals.
        Keep a good supply of Saturday Night Specials – also Sunday, Monday,
     Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday Night Specials. Your criminal
     presence will improve your neighbor’s light bill; when he isn’t watching you
     at night (with his lights off), he will be able to read books at night by
     the light of the police helicopter searchlights!
        Here’s more insanity: Uncle Sam spends millions of our tax money to
     move you into our neighborhoods where we lose much when we sell our homes. 
     So you have your nerve when you glare and swear at us when we don’t move 
     out quickly; but you’re the reason we can’t find good buyers! I really wonder
     what you and Uncle Sam will do when lots of folks move to the wilderness and
     live off the land and consequently don’t have to pay taxes to support such
     sickness!
        Finally, spread the rumor that all of your troubles are associated with
     skin, even though you and I know that your problem isn’t skin. It’s sin!!!
        What makes a ghetto? It’s not the paint on a house (or lack of it) but all
     of you two-legged pains in the neck!

    As great as that piece was, it wasn’t from 1964/65, rather an edit of his radio broadcast in 1996. There are plenty websites that point this out, but out of everyone that hears it, no one bothered to research it to see how true he was about “incurable diseases” back in 1965. Which really wasn’t true at all; but in 1996 AIDS was rampant and a much bigger discussion that he included it in his 1996 version of “If I Were The Devil”.

    COJC7 just to let you know the names that were used in the past were in a different language, not the ones that are in use today. We, as an English speaking nation are in a large part responsible for the world using (Sunday, Monday, etc., etc.,) English is the language of trade and as such a lot of our names for things have been adopted. Now as to where the day of the week falls, our forefathers have always referred to Sunday as the Sabbath, this was passed on to us by way of the Roman Catholic Church under Constantine. Your right God did not change the day of Sabbath, Nor have we. In this it’s all about your interpretation of the work week, not the calendar week.

  • Anonymous

    The languages used in the past are not the point. Our forefathers, with all due respect, were wrong about the Sabbath day, precisely because they received the information from the Roman Catholic Church under Constantine. In that, you are correct.

    God is older than 321 AD, so I will defer to God’s calendar. (Side note: You know, he also said that we should work 6 days a week. There is no such thing as a 2-day “weekend” in the scriptures. How will a lot of church-goers handle that? Plus, start working on Sundays?) It was not an easy decision for me. A lot of searching went on, and fighting an uphill battle with most all of my relatives, but it was worth it, for the peace of mind.

    Malachi 3:6 says that God does not change. Since Jesus is God, then we know He does not change also. He hallowed the seventh day as the Sabbath, and He will not take it back, nor abolish it.

    Are you sure he was using allegory?

    On what basis do you refute the pre-tribulation rapture?

  • Mark

    One of my pastors recently addressed this in a sermon. He stated that 9 of the 10 are restated in the New Testament. The only one not reiterated is the command to observe the Sabbath.

    That’s the potential misunderstanding. Acts 17:11 reminds us to receive what our pastors say gladly, but then go home and search the scriptures to see if what they were saying is true.
    Jesus told us that if we heard the apostles, we heard Him. So, when James told us to break one of 10 commandments is to break them all, then he brings them into the NT. (James 2:10-12). Also, James calls them the perfect law of liberty. So, we see that they are all still in force. Paul called the law holy, just and good. What law? The holy law. Not the law (or book) of Moses.
    Here is a fascinating bible study: look up the law of Moses, and the law (or commandments) of God. They are two different things! Ordinances were nailed to the cross, the 10 commandments moved from tables of stone into our hearts.

    If I were the devil I would make the middle class think that they had a voice in Washington, and that trickle down economics was a perfect system and that poor people were takers–not producers, so basically–not good. I would make them think that estate taxes caused millions of family farms to be foreclosed on. I would create a news station that spread lies and half truths, that called itself ‘fair and balanced’ but CONSISTENTLY took an opposite opinion (even if they had to reverse an earlier opinion) of a leader who has sought to help poor, old people get decent healthcare and not have to lose the homes to pay for an operation.

    Another way to paraphrase the Biblical: the World, the Flesh, and the Devil. Harvey just has an uncanny knack for illuminating narrative.

  • john

    Paul Harvey was my father’s cousin who I met several times. Like the rest of the family, Paul was very religious and held tight to the promise of free salvation through Christ for all who simply accept it. Paul also was a very intelligent man who understood what was going on behind the scenes as well as what the eye could see. Thus, many of his radio addresses warned of the future if the present did not repent and get back to Godly ways. But, as much as he warned, Paul also knew that God’s plan was in motion and that the Devil would be turned loose for a lengthy period of time in order to lure as many souls away from salvation as he could. Enlisting the aid of his army of angels, the devil has been hard at work destroying the world’s understanding and acceptance of God’s will for mankind. “One Nation Under God” is not the first nation to be deceived and led away from God. In fact, it’s one of the last to throw aside God in favor of more pleasurable “sins”. What is taking place around the world and right here at home is not a mystery to anyone who has studied Daniel, Timothy, or John’s Revelations, as well as many other books of the Bible that ARE the INSPIRED, UNCHANGABLE WORD OF GOD. In the end the nations of earth will all submit themselves to the leadership of the Devil, the Anti Christ, and the world will be divided into 10 provinces, all ruled by the leadership hand picked by the Devil himself, and Christians will be hunted and slaughtered as in the days of old.
    I have no idea if we are in the end of times or not. Only God knows when the beginning of the end will come. But I do know that most of the prophecies of both the Old and New Testament books, Inspired by God through men He chose to write down what He told them to write, has already come to pass. The world will unite under one religion, one money, one media, one ruler. If the dollar is kicked out of the World Currency after this new 30% transaction tax on all banks that deal with converting other currencies to dollars so those countries can pay their bills, buy their oil, and such, in favor of the new IMF suggested SRD, a World Currency not tied to any country, that leap to one currency will be fully under way. Allah’s followers are working very hard to convert the World to Islam, or kill those that won’t convert. And the Media has already lost it’s way and only reports what it’s told to report bending the facts as they are told t bend them so as to distort the truth and bend people’s minds into sheeple willingly being led to the end, the slaughter.
    I do not believe the United States can be returned to “One Nation Under God” at this point as those we elected to office in all parties have made huge deals with the devil’s minions in order to have the money to run for the office they seek in he first place, and even larger deals and the gift of their souls to those behind the scenes that decide who wins those elections. The corruption behind the scenes that went on in Obama’s 2nd election is well known and well documented, but nothing is being done about it. The Republicans can’t because they are just as corrupt. Just not corrupt enough to be as good at it as the Democrats have become. “All will be led to suffer equally.” Over 47 million people in this country eat at least a meal per day because tax payers send them Food Stamps, like it or not. 1/3rd of those eligible to work can not find jobs because our government has taxed Corporations s much more heavily than other countries do that those Corporations have moved out of the United States and taken their jobs for hard working Americans with them. 47% of American households today live their life style based on the size of the Federal Tax Dollar paid for check they get in their mail boxes every month. There is no turning back when that many can no longer do for themselves. There is only continuing to be prepared to have our “wicks trimmed, and lamped filled” while we hold fast to the only truth the world has to offer in the end.

    The middle class has a voice. They just fail to use it. They aren’t oppressed or even suppressed, just lazy. Voter turnout is low, unchecked emotion pushes their ideals, and the concept of personal responsibility is nearly gone, substituted with….”someone else will take care of me or it..”. The loud minority with it’s guilt trips wins the run here. Change for the sake of change.

    There have been plenty of public uprisings in the past over legislation where politicians heeded the voice of the people. But that’s becoming more and more rare. It’s easier to hashtag than actually do something.

    I always admired Paul Harvey and learned a great deal from him. How prophetic his words were, though he never claimed to be a prophet; but his intellect and common sense were all he needed to see what has been right in front of us all for so very long.

    The part that alludes to AIDS was not in the original version, but appeared in 1996. Not so prophetic. Check out Snopes for the story.

    Very well put. Thank you!!

    Beck needs to do a little research. Harvey wrote this version in the mid-90′s.

    The fact that this version was written in the 90′s and not 60′s makes them look like morons. The poor writing is just icing on the cake.

    Paul Harvey wrote ” The Devil” in 1964 and it was broadcast in 1965.

  • Bai Dushuren

    Harvey wrote the ORIGINAL “The Devil” in 1964. This is NOT the original version. This version, provided by Beck and saying it was from 1965, was re-written in 1996. If you look at the original version, and the version here – you will find the content is quite different. It looks like you need to do a little research as well. I even made it easy for you in my post by providing you a link that has all this information.

  • Bai Dushuren

    This version was actually written in 1996. As much as I like Harvey, if you look at the original version that he wrote in 1965, you will find it to be much less “prophetic”. http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/devil.asp

    Heaven forbid people do even a tiny bit of research! Willful ignorance or laziness, or both.

    From day one, I told people I felt Obama was the devil that would corrupt and bring this country down,..financially, economically, spiritually, and morally. He came here to destroy this once great country and will successfully do so unless the people of this country get their blinders off and have this demon removed from office.

  • Cindy

    Case727, you’re so right. If only we had the faith the size of a mustard seed, we could get our country back to peaceful times with morals, freedom, respect for mankind, economic relief, and God as our ‘Commander in Chief”, not the devil we have in office today.
