Difficult times have come, but how can Americans overcome?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Glenn kicked off the radio show this morning with two stories that may seem like they don’t affect your life, but Glenn really thinks that they do. In one, a woman shot a man in what she claimed was self-defense and then took his photo with her cell phone before driving off. In another, a man posted a video of his wife’s temper tantrum. Reacting to the videos, Glenn was left wondering how Americans have become so self-absorbed and in love with themselves – and told listeners about a Bible passage that showed exactly what was happening in the world.

“When I watched that videotape, I saw those two stories last night and I thought to myself, we are in interesting times,” Glenn said.  “Men now are lovers of themselves.  They are not ‑‑ they are not in love with anything but themselves.  Geraldo Rivera tweeting a picture of himself, he is a lover of himself, not truth.  Himself.  We are covetous.  With Al Sharpton, boasting.  That he took the anger and he organized that anger.  Look at our president the way he stands, with his chin up in the air like Mussolini.  We are proud.  We are arrogant.  We are blasphemous.  Chanting hail Satan.  Just outside of the capitol in Austin.”

“We are disobedient to our parents.  Tell me the respect that we have for parents anymore.  “I want my healthcare.”  You had yours, grandma.  Remember that quote?  We are unthankful.  How many times have your kids really been grateful for anything, really, truly grateful?  We are unholy.  We don’t have natural affection towards people anymore.  We don’t have natural affection?  We don’t ‑‑ we’re turning into those people in China that ‑‑ remember that video that came out about a year ago where a kid was run over in the street and they just kept running over him, and people would actually step over this child?  Do you remember that?  We are losing our natural affection for each other.  We are truce‑breakers.  Do our ‑‑ do our allies even know where we stand?  Does our word mean anything anymore?  We’re false accusers.  “You’re a racist!  It’s your fault!”  We are despisers of those that are good.  We are traitors, we are heady, we are high‑minded, we are lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God.  There are those who have the form of godliness.  At the same time those who have the form of godliness deny the power of God.  Men are corrupt.  And those who are godly, those who try to stand for those things that are right are suffering persecution and soon prosecution.”

Glenn said that the news today reminds him of 2 Timothy 3 in The Bible:

3 But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. 2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money,boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, [a]haters of good, 4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 holding to a form of [b]godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these. 6 For among them are those who [c]enter into households and captivate [d]weak women weighed down with sins, led on byvarious impulses, 7 always learning and never able to come to the [e]knowledge of the truth. 8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men of depraved mind, rejected in regard to the faith.9 But they will not make further progress; for their folly will be obvious to all, just as [f]Jannes’s and Jambres’s folly was also.

10 Now you followed my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, patience, love, [g]perseverance, 11 persecutions, andsufferings, such as happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium and at Lystra; what persecutions I endured, and out of them all the Lord rescued me! 12 Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. 13 But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is [h]inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for[i]training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.

Glenn said, “As I lay in bed last night truly frightened for my country and mankind in a different way, not about the red, white and blue – but about humanity. And then I turned the page to Chapter 4 as I thought to myself, ‘So what do we do? What do we do?’ Tell the truth. Tell the universal everlasting truth. Say it with everything in you. Reprove, rebuke, exhort, beg if you have to, with all long suffering, endurance. Because the time will come. The time is here. When most people just will not be able to endure the truth, they’ll chase after their own lusts and their own desires and they’ll heap those things on themselves and they will surround themselves with teachers and professors and educated of the world to give them and tell them the things they want to hear. And they will turn their ears and their heads and they will no longer even listen to the truth. And then they will just start listening and accepting fables.”

“But we have to keep our eye on the truth, and nothing grand, nothing profound, if you will, nothing Earth‑shattering, nothing that anybody had to study for, you know, 40 years. I’ve spent my whole life. Simple. Truth. And endure all the things that will happen. And become an evangelist for that truth. The truth that there is a god. He’s going to judge all of us in the end. He’s the only ‑‑ he’s the only time that there will ever be true justice. There will never be justice. There will never be equality. There will never be anything because man is involved. But there is coming a time when he will judge, and whether it’s you or the other guy that “gets it” in the end, I got it. I’ll be judged, you’ll be judged and so maybe we should serve him. And the best way to serve him is to serve our fellow man. And how do we serve our fellow man?”

“You know what? As a parent, as a parent there are times when you just cannot console your own children. There’s nothing you can say. They’re beyond reason. And you just hold them and you just tell them it’s going to be okay. It’s going to be okay because I know tomorrow comes, and I know we can start all over, and I know, honey, you don’t want to hear this, but this will make us stronger. It’s going to be okay. Find the truth and dedicate your life to it.”

“I’m a watchman on the tower and it is my responsibility to tell you the things that I see coming, but once I’ve told you, you are the watchman on the tower. If you don’t say it, if you don’t preach it, if you don’t dedicate your life as much as I dedicate my life. Every second of the day I’m trying to find out how I’m trying to get more people to understand. If you don’t do it, judgment’s on you, not me. It’s your job.”

    Solution – return to conservatism and return to God.

    That would be a major step forward in the right direction.

    I can’t believe you could read what Glenn just said and then talk trash.  Why would you even come to this web site?  This site is for conservative God fearing people who want to do the best they can for their family and their country.  Have you no shame?  Is this the way you would talk if Glenn was here in person?

    Sucking dick is your thing, now, get down on your knees for another dose from Obamao’s blue-veined yogurt dispenser.

    The answer is not in politics or politicians as much as we want to pin our star to the elite representing our “party”.  The answer is God.  And each one of us must find it.  It’s up to each of us, not as a whole, but as individuals.  Then family, then city, then state, then country.  But it’s End Times and we will suffer for our love of God.  It is written. Love those who punish you and make fun of your belief.  It’s the only way to withstand and stand until the End.

    A quick road to tyranny is
    economic collapse. Cicero wrote of this long ago. The simple fact is you
    cannot spend money that isn’t there. An eight year old can realize this
    yet our politicians do not–or should I say they realize it fully and
    ignore the fact because they have lost all morality. Both sides. At this
    point programs need to be cut. Even if they are good causes–someone
    needs to be the adult in the room. I used not only Cicero as a basis of
    my fiction but the fall of other empires as well. History is an
    inconvenient thing–it tends to repeat itself.
