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.”

    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.

       I’m just afraid we’ll have to go thru this as the precursor to the 2nd Coming, when evil and Satan have temporary power in the earth.  We are told to have faith and be not afraid because this must come to pass.

      • snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

        Bud – indeed, right now though I have to wonder if this is the warmup talked of in Revelations (the beast and his minions having power for a short time) or the time of troubles spoken of be Lord Jesus (he said “and there shall be a time of trouble on the earth such as has not been seen before nor shall again…”)

        Either way, its going to get ugly, and with God something both great and wonderful will emerge. This too must come to pass.

          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.

            Those like them…wow. This has been my problem for so long. We talk about being this Christian nation but when we pray, we pray for America…we pray for the people we love…the people we feel sorry for…we do NOT pray for our enemies, for the people we don’t understand, for those that commit violent crimes…we don’t pray for strangers that aren’t socially accepted.

            It’s so easy, isn’t it? To pray only for certain people. It’s like charity. We give as long as we aren’t aware of the receiver committing any sins we don’t personally like. We give only when it doesn’t involve any real sacrifice that would put us out.

            People try to simplify life way too much and don’t dig deeper to account for our own actions. Can you walk out right now and hug a guy who’s face is covered in sores? Can you invite a homosexual to your house for dinner because he has no food? Are you going to welcome a woman who cheated on her husband or had an abortion into your church?

            No, being a Christian is much harder than going to church and deciding that you’ve been saved. How you treat your loved ones makes you a good friend or family. How you treat a stranger makes you a good Christian.

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

          • John

            We are not appointed to HIS wrath… 5 chapters of Revelation will likely occur before the rapture…I could break this down further but I’m tired. Research this and you will find more than enough to refute pre-suffering doctrine. This is not a difficult doctrine to disprove.
            We are entitled to the same persecution and craziness the early church went through. Most of us will die before the rapture.

            God bless and good night.

      I agree , I would however , like to add this.  God has and is always with us , we are the ones that walk away.   And we will not take back this nation unless we do what God said  “Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.” 2 Chron 7:14

        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.

          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.

            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.

            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.

          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.

             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 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:

            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.

            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.

          • BigSkyDan

            You know I have nothing against seventh day Adventists. I for one work 6 days a week. I don’t take Satudays off. I’m not at the office either. Saturdays I am doing house work, or hunting/fishing/hiking which technically by OT law would have been deemed work. Honestly though which day we recognize as the Sabbath doesn’t really matter.

          • COJC7

            You assume I am Seventh day Adventist. I am not, nor ever was, a Seventh-day Adventist. I grew up Methodist. I am a One-God, not three, Jesus’ Name baptized (full immersion, not sprinkled), Holy-Ghost-filled, 10 Commandment-keeping Apostolic.

            When you say which day we recognize doesn’t really matter, who are you saying that about? Humans? A careful reading of the matter shows that it matters to God. God called it “My Sabbath.” That should be all we care about, pleasing Him, not a made-up answer as some preachers erroneously say “One day in seven.” God said the Seventh day. It is His day. Not the Jews’ day, nor the Gentiles.

          • BigSkyDan

            I never said you were a seventh day Adventist. I’m just stating in general. I have nothing against them. And yeah God has his Sabbath, some recognize it on Saturday, some recognize it on Sunday. I don’t think God really cares. Our culture with a 5 day work week Monday is the first day of the work week so logically the seventh day is Sunday.

          • COJC7

            You pretty much made my point. God does not change. (See Malachi.) You, our culture, the jokes we elect for president, all can say, “I’m changing the week because it suits me.” We show God that we love Him by doing what He told us to do. _1 John 5:2-3) And that means keeping ALL TEN commandments, not just nine. (JAMES 2:10 shows that the ten commandments are all one unit.)

            It doesn’t matter what you think, or what I think. It only matters what God thinks. And, His Word (the scriptures) spells out what He cares about.

            Our present ungodly culture perverted the work week, so how can that be proof that the seventh day is Sunday? God said the seventh day is from sundown Friday evening to sundown Saturday evening (according to our small-g gods daily naming convention).

            BTW, the only day named in the scriptures is the Sabbath. All other days are spoken of are first day of the week, etc.

            You wouldn’t say that theft and murder is a personal preference, would you? If we throw one commandment under the bus, then according to James, the fleshly brother of Jesus Christ, then we have to throw all the commandments under the bus.

            Instead of doing what we think, we ought to have the “mind of Christ” (1 Cor. 2:16)

            Another point: I am using scripture for my points. WIll you do the same for your points?

          • BigSkyDan

            Yeah I shall, I Corinithians 16:1-2 ; Acts 20:7. So as you see the Christians were meeting on the first day of the week. Bible evidence shows that after the resurrection, churches met on the first day of the week as instructed to by the Apostle Paul and Luke and also other days. But I am also one who subscribes to two covenants, perhaps you do not. Regardless Romans 14:5-6, Collosians 2:16-17, Galatians 4:8-10 clearly state that this is something that is to divide Christians as it clearly does not matter what day we observe as the Sabbath day. The important thing is that we are not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together for the worship of God and the edification of believers.

          • COJC7

            Those Christians were meeting on the first day of the week to work, to gather the collection for the saints in Jerusalem. The Sabbath was set aside for man to do no work. That passage has nothing to do with changing the Sabbath to Sunday.

            Acts 20:7, Paul began preaching on the Sabbath. Remember, the Sabbath, as did all days began at sunset and ended the next sunset, not at midnight like it is today. When we examine this passage it is easy to see that the disciples had been in a Sabbath afternoon meeting, and because Paul had to leave in the morning he stayed on after dark and continued preaching. As the Sabbath day drew to a close at dark, it became the first day of the week. It is also noteworthy that Paul set out on his journey the following morning, which was Sunday morning.

            I most definitely believe in one covenant, not two. As Rev. 14:12 states:

            ” Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.” So, we see that the NT saints will keep God’s ten commandments and have obeyed Acts 2:38, thus having the faith of Jesus Christ.

            Again, Romans 14 does not mention the Sabbath at all, but of saints who want to keep an additional day in high esteem.

            There are so many preachers who use Colossians 2 to say that the ten commandments are done away with. God wrote the ten commandments with His own finger. He did not allow Moses to write it down. Moses wrote the ordinances, however, in a book, or scroll. Back up to verse Col. 2:14: It talks about the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, and contrary to us, and nailed it to the cross. The ten commandments have not one penalty mentioned in them. It is clear that he is talking about the law of Moses. He says that we are not to judge a saint that have a desire to keep God’s Covenant.

            Gal 4 talks about men being under the law of bondage, i.e. The law of Moses, or the ordinances. James called it the perfect law of liberty. James 1:25) We know this because in Chapter 2, he mentions the ten commandments.

            What divides Christians is not knowing the scriptures. Assembling ourselves together is important, but to fear God, and keep His Commandments, is the whole duty of man. (Ecc.)

            BTW, do you know how we know that we love God?

            1 John 5:2-3

            2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

            3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

            John said that, in the NT. The apostle John.

            We must worship God is Spirit and Truth. What is Truth?

            Psalms 119:151 – Thou art near, O LORD; and all thy commandments are TRUTH.

            John 3:19-21 – 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. (Notice, the opposite of doing evil is not doing good Rather the opposite of evil is truth.)

            Psalms 119:142 – Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the TRUTH.

          • BigSkyDan

            So you call taking up a collection for the saints work? Really? I guess Pharisees do exist today. I wonder what would have happened if you came across Jesus during his earthly ministry and on the Sabbath he did exactly as he did the other 6 days. That is work miracles.

          • BigSkyDan

            From Jeremiah: “Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, not like the covenant which I made with their fathers when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant which they broke, though I was their husband, says the LORD. But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it upon their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And no longer shall each man teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the LORD; for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”

            Jesus, 600 years later: “This is the NEW covenant in my blood.”

            It’s really not rocket science here friend. God made an old covenant with man, a contract that MAN BROKE. God made a new contract that was not dependent on man’s works. As man by nature will always fall short of the law. Which was, I believe, God’s intention to begin with, to show us or sin nature. God sent His son to die to seal this new covenant in HIS BLOOD. This is indisputable truth. Through his stripes, we are healed. For by grace we are saved through faith and that NOT OF WORKS it is the gift of GOD lest any man should boast.

            I think the early Christians began to worship and consider Sunday the Lord’s Day or sabbath because He was raised from the tomb on Sunday. God never changes anything? Even during his earthly ministry Christ taught that much of the strict Mosaic law was largely fulfilled by his coming and changes began (we don’t make blood sacrifices anymore, you can forget “eye for an eye” etc) btw.. you can find calendars that put Monday as the first day and Sunday as the 7th of that helps.

          • COJC7

            No, God does not change. Malachi 3:6.

            You confuse the Mosaic law, the one with all the penalties, with the 10 commandments. Or the royal law, as James put it in chapter 2. Surely the law of liberty. Surely, you don’t suggest that lying, murdering, or stealing is abolished? So it is with the sabbath.

            Man’s foolish calendar alterations can never change God’s calendar. Sunday has always been the first day of the week.

            Speaking of the Sabbath, God said it was His.(Isaiah 58:13). False preachers call it the Jewish sabbath.

            Furthermore, He said it was the seventh day, not one day in seven. It means something to God. Why doesn’t it mean the same to us humans?

            Also, Jesus was crucified on a Wednesday. It turns out that there were two Sabbaths that year. A High Sabbath (perfect timing, since Jesus was our Passover; 1 Cor. 5:7), Passover, plus the weekly Sabbath. Jesus said that the only sign given that would prove He was the Messiah would be that He would be 3 days and 3 nights in the heart of the earth, or the tomb. If He spent any less or any more, He would have been a fraud.

            Fri. sundown to Sun. Morning is only a day and a half. So. It is impossible that Fri. Is crucifixion day. He arise at sundown on Saturday, or what is known as the end of the sabbath.

            Final thought: I have posted scripture. Do you have scripture to back up your views?

          • sandy1940

            you are correct…out of all the comments, you are correct. Jesus became our rest from all works, how so many Christians miss this is mind boggling.

          • Matt Glenn

            If you were hired by someone to do a job, it’s a one day job, if you do good you can come back next week for another one day job….the boss says you are to be at the job on Tuesday to do the work but you don’t show up, you don’t even so much as call to give a reason….then on Thursday you go and do the job you were hired to do, you do the very best you can and the job turns out great….do you think you will have a job the following week? I mean after all, which day you did it doesn’t really matter right? Yes it matters, the boss man said to do it on Tuesday, so you do it on Tuesday not Thursday

          • BigSkyDan

            For most people the week starts on Monday. And the weekends on Sunday. (Hence weekend) We live our lives this way in our culture. other cultures are different. At different points in history different calendars have been used. To say that today’s saturday is the seventh day has no viability. My calendar that I have on my desk shows Monday at the beginning of the week other calendars may show Friday as the end of the week. The Sabbath means every seventh day. It does not mean Saturday. Unless you can show me Biblical proof that creation was on a Sunday your illustration has no merit. The boss told me to do it every 7th day. Well ok then.

          • Meredith McLaughlin

            I don’t think WHICH day we make our Sabbath, as long as we have a Sabbath Day…a day of rest. Police officers and medical personnel cannot all observe the Sabbath on either Saturday or Sunday, but must take it when they can!!
            The law is to teach us God’s principles, and go much further than the words.. such as Jesus saying to not murder, but that if you hate it’s the same thing.

            Let’s not get so legalistic.

          • 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.

          • Anonymous

            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.

          • Ferrari fan

            however, it is interesting to note that the 4th commandment is the ONLY one that begins “Remember”.

          • Mikki Cochran

            @ cojc7 You are so very correct.. I have found very few who sees this the way we do.. Amen. I have learned a certain religious group admit to changing the Sabbath from Saturday to sunday That tells me a lot. just sayin but, English/American calendars begin the day on sunday as the first day of the week and Saturday the seventh day of the week!!

          • Kathy Bever

            The Law is Old Testament. Jesus finished it. We are not bound by the Law. If we are, then Christ died for naught!

          • COJC7

            Christ certainly did not die for naught!

            What few people really understand is that there are two laws. One is the law, or book, of Moses. It was all the 600+ ordinances that spelled the penalty for breaking God’s 10 Commandments. God’s Law, or testimony, was written by Him, on two tables of stone. By the Holy Ghost, He transferred them into our hearts. James called it the law of liberty. How can a law that makes you free bound us up? Also, all kingdoms have laws. God’s Kingdom is no different.

            I am not taking anything away from God’s grace. Thank God for it! Otherwise, none of us would be able to enter into His kingdom.

            Hebrews 8:8-10 – Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant For this is the covenant that I will make I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: (Note that In the New Covenant He simply transfers His Ten Commandments from the old stones and places them into our hearts. He doesn’t change them or alter them in any way. There were 10 when He started there will be 10 when He is finished)

            Romans 7 speaks about the Royal law of God (the ten commandments: we know he is talking about them because he mentions one of them, Yhou shalt not covet). He calls it holy, just and good. We should not dare call it null and void. No, it is our negative response to that commandment that brings forth sin.

            When you say Jesus finished it, what exactly did He finish? Let’s take a look at the passage in Colossians 2. So many use it to say that the 10 Commandments are done away with. Remember, though, that God wrote them with His own finger. He did not let Moses write it down. Moses did, however, write the ordinances, and placed them in a book. Colossians 2:14 talks about the:

            14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

            The ten commandments is God’s word, or testimony. Jesus is the Word, made flesh.

            Also, we will keep the Sabbath, and the feast of tabernacles, too, during the Millennium. (Isaiah 66:22-23). Doesn’t it behoove us to practice keeping it now?

          • Kathy Bever

            I didn’t say He did! That was not MY point

            Please tell me where in the Bible that is written? Chapter and verse.

          • dave courtney

            We are bound by the Law/Old Testament; just try disobeying it to see that Jesus is a part of It’s fulfillment and He tells us to go and sin (Old Testament sin) no more. The whole Bible is the Creator’s Word and it is a dangerous misunderstanding to attempt to honor the Creator otherwise.

          • Rowdy

            Jesus is the Sabbath, not a day of the week.

            Ill take that reward… show me in the Bible where any of our current weekdays or even months are there… God’s calendar looks nothing at all like ours.. show me that He started with the first day being Sunday…. afterall, the days we use are day and night, He used night and day as the first day and so on….

          • COJC7

            The Jewish people have always known what day the Sabbath is. Today it would be considered Fri. sundown to Saturday sundown. God said He changes not. Since He established the Sabbath in the beginning, at creation, and since we will be keeping the Sabbath during the millennium (See Isaiah for that one), who are we humans to change God’s times and laws (as Daniel noted)? Just because Constantine took it upon himself to change it from Sabbath to Sunday doesn’t void God’s order.

            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.

          • Guest

            I think I figured out your name. Church of Jesus Christ? We are on the same team yet your attitude towards the Sabbath is pharisaical. The Jews crucified Jesus for among other things not honoring the Sabbath in the manner that they interpreted from the Old Testament, and honestly they were RIGHT!. Jesus was healing people on the Sabbath. He was travelling on the Sabbath. These things are recorded. For being the Church of Jesus Christ you should maybe become more familiar with his teachings. Specifically his introduction to his disciples of the NEW COVENANT. The new testament that was prophesied by the prophet JEREMIAH 600 years earlier!!!

            “Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, not like the covenant which I made with their fathers when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant which they broke, though I was their husband, says the LORD. But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it upon their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And no longer shall each man teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the LORD; for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”

          • COJC7

            (This reply is for BigSkyDan, too)

            The best thing you can do, is search out the scriptures for yourself. It took me 10 years to see the Sabbath as still being in effect today.

            Reading and studying scripture will help you discover that:

            1. Jesus was born in late Sept.-Early Oct.

            2. We don’t know the exact number of wise men (and, they visited Jesus as a toddler, from 2 years old or under, not after He was born)

            3. He was born in a Sukkah, or tabernacle, not an animal trough

            4. He was crucified on a Wednesday, and arose on Sat. evening at sunset (just inside the Sabbath!)

            I would be happy to provide detailed studies of these topics, if you would like.

            I am a Covenant-keeper, not just a Sabbath-keeper. Not a Pharisee, either. I’ve been called worse. :)

            And, I repented, was baptized in Jesus Christ’s name (not the titles), full immersion, and then received the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues, as the Spirit gives utterance.

            That being said, I totally agree with Jeremiah! You made my point! Paul (assumed to be the writer of Hebrews) quoted Jeremiah when he stated:

            Hebrews 8:8-10 – Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant For this is the covenant that I will make I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:

            – (In the New Covenant He simply transfers His Ten Commandments from the old stones and places them into our hearts. He doesn’t change them or alter them in any way. There were 10 when He started there will be 10 when He is finished)-

            God’s intention was that we obey Him. That’s how we show Him we love Him:

            From The Apostle John:

            1 John 2:4 – He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

            1 John 3:24 – And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him.

            1 John 5:2 – By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

            1 John 5:3 – For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

            1 John 3:22 – And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

            Jesus paid the price for all the 600+ordinances, statues and penalties for breaking one of the ten commandments with His own precious blood, Thank God! Thank God for the blood!

            These ten commandments aren’t works, as Baptists are so fond of saying. They are a response from us to our God. Since Jesus is God, then we know that he does not change. If I came upon Jesus during His earthly ministry, I would fall down and worship Him, first of all, and then recognize that He had no problem doing good on the Sabbath day. Those aren’t works. The work the 4th commandment is talking about is for labor, a living, housekeeping.

            If you say that any day out of seven is OK, then would you be willing to go ahead and worship on the Sabbath? That is, if no day is better than the other?

            The main point is: there are two laws…

            “He has established these Ten Commandments as His Covenant.”

            Deuteronomy 4:13 – And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone.

            “Maybe He has altered or changed His Covenant…”

            Psalms 89:34 – My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.

            – Notice he said ‘My Covenant,’ not the book or law of Moses.

            Numbers 23:19 – God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

            II Chronicles 33:8

            8 Neither will I any more remove the foot of Israel from out of the land which I have appointed for your fathers; so that they will take heed to do all that I have commanded them, according to the whole law and the statutes and the ordinances by the hand of Moses.

            – Notice God commanded them (the ten commandments), and the statutes, etc. by Moses (all the “don’t eat pork, shellfish, etc.)

            II Kings 21:8

            8 Neither will I make the feet of Israel move any more out of the land which I gave their fathers; only if they will observe to do according to all that I have commanded them, and according to all the law that my servant Moses commanded them.

            -See, God commanded them, and Moses commanded them.

            But maybe we don’t have to keep all ten, just keep nine of them. After all, we can all agree that murder is still in force, lying, strealing…

            James 2:10-12 – For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law. So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty. (This is James teaching the 10 Commandments to the New Testament Church, calling them “the law of liberty” not “the law of bondage”, and teaching that all ten must be kept)

            I will conclude with this:

            Please search the scriptures. I care about all of you. When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.

            Be blessed, my friends.

          I must disagree and remind you, we are decedents of Abraham within the 7 tribes, We are no longer under God’s law (Commandments) That went to the cross with Jesus, we are saved by grace, love, and forgiveness however we are not just judged as individuals but also as a Nation as the Bible tells us. The Old Testament is the law, the New Testament is Grace saved by Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior sent to save those who Faithfully believe and most certainly under the covenant of Abraham.

        • Ladydtxpatriot

          You err sir markinidaho , if you don’t think by being believers, in the gift of
          Salvation, was given to only believers who accepted it. WHEN the Chief
          Priests lying to the Jews and them believing the Priests instead of
          Jesus and his disciples, they made their choice and then, we were
          grafted in and received the gift the Jews turned down, we became his
          chosen people, where ever we are, in the 4 corners of the world. One day
          we will be gathered, by Jesus from those 4 corners of the world, the
          dead in Christ shall rise first and then those that are left alive will
          join our savior, our messiah in his glorious return. Israel is not a
          place, it was a group of believers and now we are all Israel and as
          such, heirs to the promises made to Abraham, Issac, and Jacob by the ONE
          who was of the House of David, and fulfilled his mission on earth and
          when He conquered the second death, He told the more that 500 that
          witnessed the fact that He arose and eventually ascended to His Father,
          the One, Holy Almighty Living God, and promised that a helper would be
          sent back to us, the ones who believe, His Holy Spirit, that lives in
          all of us, but is only active in believers. Israel was a place, not a
          race and the race of Jews were lied to and decided to believe the lies
          of the Chief Priest, instead of the One perfect Lamb, that cannot lie.
          We are the recipients of that Spirit and we must follow God’s Laws, the
          Ten Commandments, for when we accepted Jesus into us, we became the
          recipients, that at first were meant for the Jews, who turned it down.

        • John

          While I agree with you, I must point out that when Israel stepped out from the protection of God’s Holy Covenant, their nation was destroyed. God did allow them to rebuild but, not until much long time suffering had passed. If we too as a nation humble ourselves before God asking forgiveness for our sins and TRULY repent of our sins and return to his ways then, God will restore our nation, just as He did, time and again, for Israel. WAKE UP AMERICA!

          Please go read the Bible carefully. We, America are of the tribe of Israel. Read the promise given to Abraham carefully and ask if the nation of Israel alone fits the “multitude of nations”, “kings come out of thee”, descendants as numerous as sands (meaning a large population), great nation, etc. Israel nation is one part (part Judah and part Benjamin). There were 12 tribes of Israel (sons of Jacob-Israel). Please read and study the words instead of just what you hear. That promise has and is being fulfilled unconditionally and is everlasting on a worldwide scale. The 12 tribes became nations. Americans definitely are part of that promise. The OT is a history of the world and nations as part of God’s plan.

          The New Testament revealed a new covenant, and thus redefined “chosen people”. The sacrifice of Christ has fulfilled the law of Moses, and we now live under a new covenant as God’s chosen people – the followers of Christ. The promise is no longer to a nation, but it is definitely to a people.

        • Kris

          No offense but no covenant made to the Israelites is without condition. But more to the point the seed of Abraham that would number like the sands and will bless all nations is speaking toward the birth line from which the “second Adam” would come a.k.a. Jesus the Christ. As we learn whether Moses to more obvious examples of Esau not all of Abraham’s seed is covered by some promise. Even the return to Israel after their scattering is not necessarily part of some unconditional promise though it is prophetic in nature and no less part of that redemption process you seem to have confused. You see there is the seed of Abraham’s that does have a covenant but I believe it’s a “spiritual seed” representing those who are circumcised of the heart, rather than of the flesh…Don’t misunderstand, the physical seed is still needed just as the Law is still good, though all it does is point out our faults without any real permanent solution for them. Thus, through THAT seed spoke of first in Genesis3:15 will ALL nations be blessed, even though clearly many are not. In fact, it’s debatable that through the eyes of those that hold the physical in high regard the first Christians THROUGH THOSE EYES weren’t very blessed at all were they? Maybe you can take a gander at Romans through that light once through…
          Before you go throwing the whole U.S.A. under the proverbial bus, maybe consider that when it comes to ministering (in the truest sense of the word) the U.S. supports and provides a large majority of those that would “preach the good news…or else how would they know?”….

          made it true.This nations downfall will not be saved unless many change and repent.

          I don’t think they will necessarily perish although I believe that we will see the coming white horse of the apocalypse soon. We now have every nation (including the current Administration, essentially acting as our king) in overt opposition to Israeli existence. Soon will come a 7 year covenant with Israel and the rest of the world, and soon we shall see the Evil One in full power. Does anyone think that it is bad now? Just wait!

      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.

        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.

      • snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

        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.

      • Tom Waeghe

        Mark Levin’s Liberty and Tyranny and Ameritopia books, Glenn Beck’s “Broke”, “The 5000 Year Leap” are some very good ones for background.  Levin references John Locke and others that the Founders relied on.

      • Tom Waeghe

        I would recommend “The 5000 Year Leap”, Mark Levin’s three books on the Supreme Court (Men in Black), Liberty & Tyranny, and Ameritopia, Glenn Beck’s “Broke”.

      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

      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

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

      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!

    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.

    “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.

          I was wondering when a political nutcase would fall off the tree and join us. Welcome, bressler.

          Where do you get your information? ABC says Obama has spent less time away from the white house than former presidents. Another website claims that he has set a record for most amount of days and money. None of them talk about the changing costs of things over the last 50 years or the age and number of children going along. They tried this crap with Michelle saying that she had a ridiculous number of servants and was “out of control.” Yet, Michelle was far from having the most out of the first ladies of the previous 20 years.

          Bigger point is, whey do we think that President’s aren’t allowed to unwind or to do something that clears their mind! Bush, Obama, Clinton, Reagan; all used recreation and vacation the same way we step away from our desks at the office for a breather, except their decisions are much MUCH more important.

    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.

    I think that those of us that believe we are living in the “end times” can agree that if it is part of God’s plan for Obama to be re-elected then it will happen no matter what we do.  If it is part of His plan for the ushering in of Jesus’ return than it is something we would need to prepare for and accept.

    It has to be your decision, it has always been that way. If someone could have whatever they wanted would their desires be greedy or would they be righteous? Would they want rule or to heal? What would you give your soul for? Before He comes, many will be saying he is not coming, and when they turn from him it will be to late for them because he will be here.
    On a more grounded subject, Glenn, this is probably one of 2,000 questions you’ve gotten this day alone, but, I need to know the truth about Mexico and America. Did America really cause their economic problems? I get conflicting biased answers and cannot find a book to answer this question.

    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

    Paul Harvey missed one big thing. If I were the devil, I’d legalize abortion. 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.

    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.

    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.

    I grew up listning to paul. I wish everyone could hear this message as if it was a current broadcast. I’m LDS, and people at my ward think paul may have been not just insightful but profetic. You are the closest thing to paul in our time, keep it up. It’s Gods Will.

    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.

    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.

    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

    I question everything I read on the internet.  So I have one question…were there metal detectors in 1965?  I was only 10, so I don’t know.   Before I send this to all my liberal friends, I want to make sue it is beyond question.  I would appreciate any input to answer my question.  Thank You.

    • Anonymous

      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.

    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.

    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.

He is our century’s Nostradamus.

    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.

     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
        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!

    I posted this very recording on my fb timeline, (Paul Harvey’s) LAST YEAR!!  2 times, actually, with the comment “chilling”.  Lost a bunch of fb friends,  no comments. People can’t handle the truth.  It was great to meet the 3 of you in Harrisburg, recently.  Stu even asked me my name.  I was truly humbled to be in the presence of such “GREAT VISIONARIES OF THE TRUTH”!   Pat told me “I must get out more often”, and I told himI was fine to be in my home with the three of you 3+ hours a day.  Its a shame to feel like a “Stranger in a Strange Land”(Heinlen). Getting to meet you was my only Christmas gift this year!  I could not have asked for anything better.  Thanks for finally making me feel like I’m the sane one and the “rest of the world”, is going “NUTS”. Thank you all for that.  May you and your families have a  Blessed Christmas!

    This sounds more like his 1996 version… so less prophetic than one might think, but still, so very correct.

  • ChocolateTundra

    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”.

    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.

    • brainy37

      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.

    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.

    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.

    • 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”.

    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.

        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.

    There are two versions of this speech/essay. The one above is NOT Paul Harvey’s 1965 speech. It is from the 1990’s. AIDS did indeed exist at that time. Seriously, Mr Beck. Research your sources and stories.
    I’m not saying this doesn’t have important and relevant issues in it, but it is NOT a prediction so much as it is a man’s views on the world around him.
    I believe in Jesus, with that, I only appreciate the truth. The false information, though I believe it was unintentionally presented that way, is not a good way to promote goodness and Jesus because it leaves ammunition for others to attack Christianity with. Even with good intentions, a lie or deception is still wrong.

    Mr. Beck, are you absolutely sure that the version of the alleged Paul Harvey “rendition” is in fact the one he actually penned/recorded? My understanding from the site is that there is a “modified” rendition and versus a correct and actual rendition. It is the former that is currently being circulated on the Internet, not the latter. Honesty and accuracy is EVERYTHING, sir. Please, I urge you, stop the sensationalism and stay with what are facts, sir, with all due respect. If you post that which is “not accurate” in the end, it is what; a lie, am I correct? Thanks.

      I’m not going to waste a lot of time trying to turn you into a good person. However, there are no perfect people on the earth. The christians you listed made some horrible almost non-forgiving mistakes. We all sin, that’s why we’re not God. I would be amiss if I didn’t tell you that Jesus Christ was the Son of God that brought salvation to our world. If you don’t reach out to him, at the end of our time, you will spend eternity with satan and his minions. I can only hope that God allows something to come into your life that will force you to reach out to Him. Because He is the only way to save your soul from eternal damnation. I will say a prayer for you twisted.

    It’s pretty easy to be prophetic in 1965 when people are quoting something that you create and evolve over time.

    How I know this is a fake:

    “…you’d have to have drug sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.”

    Metal detectors were not used in the US for security screening until 1972, and patented by by Charles L. Garrett that year.

    • Elizabeth R. Wolfe

      Metal detectors may not have been used for security screenings in 1965 – but they had been around since the 1920’s and I’m sure there had been talk in that space of time of using them as a security measure. It would just make sense. If you look up the way back rendition of this, it isn’t much different. It really isn’t a fake – Paul Harvey would routinely rebroadcast his most popular articles and shows with little changes.

      • Donny Brusca

        When you use the heading that this post did, and then post the text of a 1996 rewrite, that is indeed misleading, and therefore a “fake.”
        The fact that the original 1965 text never mentioned metal detectors validates my point. It’s OK, Glenn Beck screwed up by posting an untrue viral internet scam as if it were true. It happens. He should just check his facts more carefully before re-posting.

    • Kyle Stryker

      I must agree with Elizabeth. Metal detectors were “patented” in 1972 but had been around far longer than that. I think my main beef with your post is that you MISS the point entirely. You would have been much more “factual” if you had stated that this was an updated version of the 1965 airing than just calling it a “fake” as you did. Go read the original version. They differ only slightly. The theme and points are the same in both versions. By just labeling it a fake, you mislead all those that read the comments into believing that the Paul Harvey broadcast didn’t even take place. Nice bit of intellectual engineering on your part I guess, if that was your intent.

    The 1965 version had no mention of diseases to which there is no cure.

    Harvey re-rewrote his speech many times over the years:

  • Saludeen

    Praise is to God, Lord of the worlds. Glorified and Exalted is He.

    25:2 The One to whom belongs the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth,
    and He did not take a son, and He does not have any partner in kingship.
    And He created everything and measured it precisely.

    5:116 And God will say: “O Jesus, son of Mary, did you tell the people to take
    you and your mother as gods other than God?” He said: “Glory to you,
    I cannot say what I have no right of. If I had said it then You know it,
    You know what is in my self while I do not know what is in Your self.
    You are the Knower of the unseen.”

    4:125 And who is better in the system than the one who submits himself to God,
    and he is a good doer, and he follows the creed of Abraham in monotheism?
    And God took Abraham as a friend.

    35:7 Those who reject will have a painful retribution,
    and those who believe and do good works they will have
    forgiveness and a great reward.

    We also can’t forget to bring abortion into this, as well as immoral and sinful lifestyles, such as homosexuality in on this all. They’re also part of our down fall too.

  • Ellabulldog

    no such thing as the devil, and religion is no cure for what ails society
    now is gambling a good thing? not in excess.
    is drinking? no but prohibition failed
    diseases happen all the time, no big prophecy there, many worse ones and plaques have happened that have wiped out hundreds of millions, aids is no big deal comparatively and now science has helped work towards a cure, not prayer
    society has many problems

    a belief in god or religion will not change any of that

    20 years before Harvey said this was WW2, millions of religious people slaughtering millions of other religious people. History can’t be looked at through a filter

    Any story with supernatural beings or explanations is a myth by definition.
    The Bible is full of myths.

    I despise the corrupt politicians as much as anyone can, both of the progressive ultra-statist and “republican” cronie-capitslist variety, but we all have to realize that these monsters would never have come to power without the wide-scale corruption of America’s souls that we have allowed. We as the church have failed, by letting out eyes drift away from what is true in favor of what is easy to say and hear. We do not condemn evil, because we do not want to be called radicals. We do not call out the government on their endless humanist lies because we want to appear cutely bipartisan. We do not teach our children the solid words of scripture because we have allowed doubt to worm its way into our hearts, and instead of bringing our questions to the Almighty, that He may answer them and reassure us of his divinity and perfection, we go to Oxford and Yale graybeards who have long ago traded their souls for a gilded podium in the public eye. Instead of truth, we teach soft rules and good suggestions, sermons built on tradition and good intentions, mentalities built on submission to law in hopes that the ones who hear will submit to the rotting philosophies of the post-christian church instead of the ever-growing demands of the outraged mobs of a puppet democracy. We need to seek truth once more, forsaking the foolish fancies of self-assurance and uncombative, politically-correct language, turning to the freedom of mind and heart and soul that Christ gives us. We have to begin at the bottom again and work–as swiftly, tirelessly, and flawlessly as we can by the grace of the God above all gods–to bring each heart within our reach back into the fold of the one good shepherd, because until we welcome God’s presence as the dynamic, life-changing force of justice and love that it is, until we realize that apart from Him we are nothing, we will continue digging the tunnels of postmodernist complacency and humanist revelry and silent hate, digging until the very foundation of everything we ever loved comes down on our heads, digging until we crack the earth and find the Hell that we pretend does not await our unapologetic pride and wicked works. We have stood at the edge over the pit of destruction; that time is gone. Now, we hang on by only our last few fingers as our feet already feet the heat of the inferno below. We cannot afford to allow evil to go unchecked any longer. We must find it in every corner of all of our lives, then cut it out with the urgency of life-saving surgery, for we cannot survive this malignant cancer any longer. We must teach truth, both justice and love, and give up what we have grown attached to in our debauchery so that we do not lose the futures of our descendants to the evils we so enjoy in the present day, and even more importantly, so that they can look to us as tustworthy guides ad they seek to find truth for themselves, and so that they will not be left with the shipwreck of a church that we present them now. Restoration or death. The time is now or never.

    I were the devil, I would influence the worlds politicians to covet and
    steal the worlds’ resources. So I’d set about however necessary to take
    over the United States. I’d subvert the moral and the intelligent. With
    the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper
    to you as I whispered to Eve: “Build a military unlike any seen before
    on Earth.” “Invade, steal, and conquer.” To the young, I would whisper,
    “Serve your country.” I would convince them that Patriotism is
    allegiance to our government instead of our country and the citizens in
    it . I would teach that what is bad is good, and what is good is
    supporting war. And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them
    to pray after me, ‘Our Father, which art in Washington…

    then I’d get organized. I’d educate journalists on how to make
    corruption and pure evil tolerable, so that anything else would appear
    unfamiliar and uncomfortable. I’d riddle TV with politicians who support
    my views, in one way or another, and in this way I’d force people to
    vote for them. I’d pedal narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to
    young people and the lost. I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

    I were the devil I’d take from the innocent, and who have, and give to
    those who lust for power until I had killed off entire nations and
    cultures. I would question peace and hard work, and call war
    Patriotism, and loyalty. I would convince the young that social concern
    is old-fashioned, that music festivals are more fun, that what you see
    on the TV is the way things are. And thus I could brainwash entire
    generations, and I could lure people into a lifestyle that operates
    outside of hope. One for which there is no cure. In other words, if I
    were to devil I’d keep on doing on what he’s doing.

    If I were God, I put all the Democrats into one section of the country and build a very large wall. There they will reap everything they sow until they ultimately consume themselves. Yes I have a dream.

  • CrazyEddy

    Read Bastiat’s The Law. It was published in 1850’s France and describes most of the current situation there today. Anyone who believes that the looming oppression of the twenty first century is something new has missed the entire history of the socialist democracy. It clearly delineates the differences between the viewpoints of the common individual and the self-styled “reformer” and links their education, at elite colleges and universities of course, to their absolute certainty that it is their duty to perfect the commoners. As good and faithful servants of the elites goes without saying.

  • Dennis Opihory

    sometimes glenn beck can be amazingly insightful and rational and prescient. this is not one of those times. I know he needs his faith to ground him but it also dulls his analytical abilities. the world wasn’t one big warm and fuzzy love feast prior to 1965 and neither was america. everyone seems to forget that the father knows best television show was fiction and that robert young was an alcoholic. john f kennedy had people assassinated and he was a compulsive sex addict. the roaring twenties were considered the devil’s decade, sex,drugs and the charleston. in the30’s the mid west turned to dust and the apocalypse was supposed to be imminent. and on and on. jimmy carter’s america was a dysfunctional mess until ronald reagan brought sanity back. it is not the end of days

    All you need to do to fix everything is to worship government and of course, the leader of the government. For from government you can receive sustenance, meaning, and a free phone!

  • Radiohost

    If I were the devil
    I would promote myself as a voice of reason a watchword crying in the night, I would start out in small markets and grow until I was in the big apple. If I were the devil I would promote myself at every turn, my name and initials every where. Get the people to follow me while pushing a little God and humanity. If I were the devil I would get those that follow to buy what I promote while taking a cut and asking for more. I would tell those that follow its capitalism and I am proud of it. If I were the devil I’d lure them in by been soft spoken, but with occasional rage and hubris, just to keep them coming. I would grow my fortune, by ranches and homes all over the west. I would charge more and more for things I once said were free. If I were the devil I would tell the people I needed 10 time the price for the clothes I make because I’m giving jobs to poor women. If I were the devil I would make my followers think I was doing the best for my country, all the while I was doing the best for myself. If I were the devil I would have an occasional tear in my eye to make them think I was a humble man, I would call out others for not doing what I wanted them to do, I would cultivate secret alliances and tell the followers if only you knew what their names were you’d be astounded, but never tell because they would soon find out I was just promoting myself.
    If I werethe devil I would tease them, I would make myself FILTHY RICH but tell those that follow its all for you, I am the watchman in the tower, I’m right often enough that they will pay more for just another tear or two.

    There was a known incurable std in 1965…Herpes. Paul Harvey isnt prophetic. He was reflecting on the rampant sexual revolution and violent occurrences on school campuses in the 60’s and the potential extreme results for our future. He only stated what “middle America” was already thinking.

  • Chef Lynnie

    This is truly PROPHETIC…and is coming true as we speak…As a nation need to stand up for our Judeo-Christian Heritage and PRAY for Israel and our nation, together we will survive as God’s elect. Israel by God’s covenant to Abraham; the US by God’s love shown in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ…

  • Jay C

    My adaptation of radio address by Paul Harvey ,1967


    He was talkin’ about defeatin’ Heaven…how Satan could get his way.
    This was back in nineteen sixty and seven. Folks, here’s an update…

    If I were Satan, I’d get my way: wrap y’all in my shroud, whisper t’ every Eve,
    “Whatever y’ want, just do it, do it, do it. Eat the fruit on ev’ry Eden tree.”

    I’d turn whatever’s right into wrong, pump up what y’all love t’ be hatin’,
    Demonize your angry Bible, nudge y’ into PC with hidden regulatin’.

    I’d promote your ev’ry idol, take God outa all your schools,
    Make Uncle Sam your medicine man. Alinsky’s “Rules…” will herd you fools.

    I’d give y’all smart phones: a chip in your heads, an’ one on your shoulder,
    Sow dark seeds, spin white lies. Y’ won’t escape cuz I’m takin’ over.

    I’d replace ev’ry admiral, fire your gen’rals; boot ’em right out through my PC door.
    I’d muzzle preachers and corral their flocks,’til In God We Trust lies dead on the floor.

    If I were Satan, I’d get my way: wrap y’all in my shroud, whisper t’ ev’ry Eve,
    “Whatever y’ want, just do it, do it, do it. Eat the fruit on ev’ry Eden tree.”

    I’d make abortion an angry right, Eliminate ev’ry human weed;
    Make self-defense a crime, Drone those who disagree.

    I’d become your puppet master: whatever it takes t’ finish job number one…
    Cheatin’…stealin’… lyin’… dividin’. I’d keep on doing what I’ve always done.

    If I were Satan, I’d get my way: wrap y’all in my shroud, whisper t’ every Eve,
    “Whatever y’ want, just do it, do it, do it. Eat the fruit on ev’ry Eden tree.”

    He was talkin’ about defeatin’ Heaven; How Satan could get his way:
    Start by bringing down America. It was 1967. “Paul Harvey. Good day.”

    Paul Harvey ws a great msn , and he saw the furture. That’s whst is happening right now. He warned us. Things are coming to padt like it says so in the BIBLE. REVELATIONS.

  • curtmavi38

    How chilling,,was this his prophesy alone or was it’s God’s warning to America. I hope it’s not too late to take His warning and turn from our wicked ways
    and come back to the only person who came to earth with one purpose in mind, that he loved us so much that He was willing to die for us. 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. John 3:16
    For God sent not his Son unto the world; to condemn the world; but the world through Him might be saved. John 3:17. meh

    There is No devil and NO god. Don’t you get it yet? Just live a good honest life. That’s all we’re here to do. I’m a good person. I have a nice happy life. Lots of love, family, money, all the nice things. And did I mention I’m HAPPY? Quit praying your life away and fearing GOD.

    The tape Glenn played is actually Paul Harvey’s revised version from 1996 not 1965.

  • sabs309

    I’m just ashamed of the “Christians” who are busy arguing about really unimportant things like which day we worship when we should be showing unity to everyone! Contending with one another was never the way of Christ. Please, spend our time on this forum in more knowledgeable and kind ways to come together. Those who do not like or ‘BELIEVE’ will only read your comments and be even more determined to wipe out Christians and Christianity for good. You think they can’t? Watch! You should be shaking in your boots! And you play at religion as if it was some game to be won!! I’m disappointed and you’ve given me and many others REASON to be!

  • OllieProphet

    Paul Harvey and Ayn Rand both got it. They recognized the evil being peddled as caring, benevolent progressivism of the Left. How to get the 30-40% to open the eyes, hearts and minds? One pebble in the shoe at a time, I suppose.

  • Nelson Enochian
  • Brad Bennett

    hard times are indeed ahead…..if you believe in made up biblical fairy tales…jeez for people that like to be independent thinkers, you sure are willing to be led around by an all loving god….who will send you to hell unless you do exactly what he says. what an unmitigated crock.

  • Peter Peter

    How do we name any day the Sabbath ,when the days of the week and months of the year are named to honor false gods and roman emperors? Jesus told us to love one another and honor God. He did not say to believe in religions or churches.

  • Mandy L. Freitag

    How sorrowful it is to see people of the same faith declare a possibility of repentance and an ability to overcome our current state…….then watch you fight with each other over idle differences. Not only believing the deception but taking part in it. The deception of pride and concern with who is right instead of humility to see what is right. I believe there is going to be a huge shift into what seems unimaginable. According to Scripture the final days will happen and the prophecy of it will come to pass. It will not be stopped. Many will die in vain trying to defeat it. A while back I was thinking about what I may face with my four little girls, and I remember thinking God loves me and he will provide for me because I am His. Then I was hit with two things……..what is my idea of provision? In relation to what will sustain me… may not be food or water or protection from harm… may be provision through the Holy Spirit. And second…… self righteous of me to think that I will not suffer or experience devastation because I am a child of God…….THERE ARE CHILDREN OF GOD ALL OVER THIS WORLD BEING IMPRISONED, PERSECUTED, PLAGUED, AND MURDERED FOR THEIR FAITH AND BELIEF IN CHRIST…….WHO AM I TO THINK SO HIGHLY OF MYSELF TO BE SET ASIDE. HOPE FOR THE BEST……..PREPARE FOR THE WORST. The only answer that will sustain us is Jesus………moral fortitude and Spiritual direction of this magnitude can only come from God. Pray, fast, get into the Word, and share to the backslidden…….letting go of what is behind and pressing forward to the mark……..fulfilling our purpose in Christ and doing what we were fearfully and wonderfully made to do. Jesus is coming! And I want to be ready! I don’t want my kids to raise their children in this toxic world. My cup runneth over…….i am overfilled with emotion knowing He is coming. I am in awe of God as I watch Scripture unfold right in front of me. Gods word is coming to pass and I feel a great urgency to draw close to Him…….to lay down things that have taken precedent over God in my life. To repent. And to encourage. Take care

  • Paul C

    Romans 7 does not mention the “Royal” law. It does speak much about the law: which shows us our sin, Rom. 3:20.
    James 2:8 If you fulfill the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself, you do well. Jesus taught us that all the law and the prophets hang on loving God with all our heart, soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself. Luke 10:27.

  • Brian_pdx

    Glenn Beck twisting the words of Paul Harvey. Sad. Progressives founded America, ended slavery and fought a war to keep the union together, brought us out of the Great Depression, created Social Security, Medicare, Unemployment Insurance, the 40 hour work week, ended child labor, won WW II and created the greatest expansion of wealth in our history (to that date) after the war. Conservatives opposed leaving the British Commonwealth and in fact opposed all of the above noted achievements and many more. Conservatives created the Great Depression and the Great Recession of 2008, lied us into war with Iraq and stole a trillion dollars plus killed over 6,000 Americans, wounding and crippling tens of thousands more. Progressives create budget surpluses after conservatives create trillions in debt. A society is measured by how they take care of the very young, the very old and those that cannot take care of themselves. A progressive named Ike Eisenhower warned us of all this in 1960.

  • Jon Bugner

    Glenn needs some better assistants. The audio that he is quoting is not the original 1964 “If I were the Devil”. Paul redid it in 1996 to reflect current events. Loved Paul Harvey

  • postingasguest

    The version of the speech shown is from a 1996 revision. The original 1965 version did NOT include the parts where Harvey supposedly predicted AIDS and other current situations. It did include a few predictions that *didn’t* happen as predicted, which were quietly removed when it was edited in 1996. You can read the original here:
