Glenn: The lost sheep, us included, are starting to come home

On radio this morning Glenn did something only he could – turning the story of a lost sheep at his ranch into the perfect analogy for making sense of the world around us today. About a year ago, the sheep on Glenn’s ranch were attacked by a pack of wolves and coyotes. The family assumed all had been lost until just a few days ago, when one of the lost sheep wandered back. It had survived.

“I want to tell you a story about something that happened to me on the ranch last week. I’ve never understood looking for that one lost sheep until we did actually have to look for one lost sheep. Last year, we had our sheep killed by coyotes, and one of them was cowering on our front porch when we came home. The coyotes had come and just got into the sheep pen and just killed them and eaten them, and one of them was up against our door just looking for our help, and we were gone. We just assumed that they had all been killed,” Glenn explained. “But then last spring, one of the guys who works on the ranch saw a sheep up in the mountains and said, ‘I think that’s one of ours.’ But it disappeared, and we own this side of a mountain that, you know, you’re just not going to get to everything.”

While at the ranch last week, Glenn’s daughter spotted a lamb out the window. Glenn explained that he put on his boots and coat and headed outside to try to catch it.

“I got my boots on and my coat and we all tried to catch sheep. Now, I’m a city boy. I have no idea what it takes to catch a little lost lamb. It’s not as easy as it might seem. And it took about six of us and two 4Runners and some rope and finally the sheep was so afraid that he ran right into the cab of my 4Runner,” Glenn said. “And so he was inside the cab of this little vehicle. And we had to bring him back. And the kids and I, as we roped the legs of this lamb to put him in the back to bring him back down to the pen, the kids just talked to him and petted his face and tried to tell him everything was going to be okay. He was terrified. He had been out in the mountains for a year alone, and he had survived the coyotes and the wolves and everything by himself. I’ve been thinking about that for a long time. In fact, as we drove him back to the pen, the kids and I talked about that one lost lamb and what it takes for Jesus to go out and how we’re all lost sheep. It was really a cool night with the kids.”

So how does this relate to the state of the world right now?

“I remember when I said ‑ after the election – I said to my own team and more to my own self, ‘Well, we all would have gone back to sleep. Maybe we’re supposed to stay awake a little longer because, if we would have put the [Romney] in, the people who were awake today, probably a good portion of them would have gone back to sleep,’” he said. “And so I thought maybe that’s the reason. But the other thing at the time, and I didn’t realize it until yesterday, I said, ‘The Lord isn’t just trying to save half the country. He wants to save everybody.’ Every single lost sheep has to be found.”

President Obama may have won the election, but his win sparked something in a lot of people – a lot of people woke and realized the problems with a large, bloated government, and people on both sides of the aisle have now resolved to fix it.

“But because the average TEA Partier no longer believes in Washington and no longer believes the answer is going to be found there, which is true. Because we don’t have a Republican president, which might have been a progressive president just as bad in many ways, we have had to rely on ourselves. And because of that, the real story yesterday was not Syria. The real story was Colorado,” Glenn explained. “And that is an amazing story. That is the story of Americans saying, ‘I don’t care what you say.’ We’re doing it the right way and recalling two politicians that were the leaders on the gun control bills in Colorado. That’s a huge story; that was seven people deciding, ‘We’re not going to take that. We’re going to recall them.” Seven people – against the man, against Bloomberg, against all of the millions of dollars, against the entire progressive movement, against the state, against everything and anybody who wants power. Seven people stood and said, ‘I’m not taking that. I’m not doin’ it.’ And they won.”

When times are tough, it is easy to get discouraged, but Glenn was adamant that there is a silver lining to even the most difficult situations.

“So the first thing I said, trying to lift myself up and my spirits up, was, ‘Well, maybe this happened because we would have all fallen asleep.’ The guys who are awake would have fallen asleep. Well, because the president was reelected, not only did we not fall asleep, we have retrenched ourselves closer to the truth,” Glenn proclaimed. “What we might have believed was the truth last year, I think we’re closer to the truth now. And that truth is this: The power resides with you, the individual. The power is not in Washington. It is close to home. And you’ve got to shore your neighborhood up, your home up. You’ve got to shore up your state. And that’s exactly what happened in Colorado. That is huge news and good news.”

“And the other thing I said after the election was, ‘God doesn’t want to lose a single one. He’s going to go after that lost sheep. And I don’t know how it’s going to work, but it is. Look at what’s happening with our country right now… Look how many people are starting to agree with each other and saying, ‘Wait, I don’t want to agree with that guy, but I do.’ We are starting now to understand that it is the power of the individual, and it is not the truth of the party, that is this blanket truth,” he explained. “And now, because Romney didn’t win, because this president has told so many lies that now his own people are starting to look at him and go, ‘This doesn’t even make sense,’ we don’t have to preach that to them. They’re seeing it. And we’re finding ourselves coming together. And the lost sheep, us included, are starting to see the real truth and are coming home. Even though we’ve all survived in the mountains for a while, and we’ve almost been eaten by coyotes, we’re all comin’ home and we’re learning to trust each other. That’s a good thing.”

    What we are seeing is the continued awakening of the people, and the ending for both the Democrats and the Republican parties.

    I’d like to believe Obama and the lawless in his Whitehouse will get justice.  I’ll settle to have them all out of office, never to return.  Since Obama’s reelection, I no longer watch tv news, finally understanding the news is scripted and a show.  Remember when Mickey Rooney in 1930′s movies would say to Judy Garland, “Hey, let’s put on a show!”.  That, my friends, is news today, a show.  I’m sad.

    You are absolutely right. I’ve been blogging my butt off…everywhere and anywhere I could. I’ve been called all kinds of names, both good and bad, I really don’t care. I would rather be looked at as a trouble maker than not live my life how I see fit for myself and my family. I will not back down, I will not give up and I certainly won’t allow myself to be fearful. If they want to stop me from doing something, they better be prepared to make the case as to why or fight me in the process.

    Oh puh-leeze, every month Glenn runs a story that is supposedly “proof” that the American people are “waking up.” 
    He has to. That’s the only thing that keeps the scam going and the money coming in. What if he said: “Well…the culture and demographics of America continue to change…we have to accept that…I mean, things just aren’t going to be the way they used to be…”

    What if he said that? It would be the truth, obviously—but would ANY of you continue to tune in to him? Of course not.

    So he has to feed this delusion that there is going to be this mass awakening and that America will go back to what it was in the 1950′s. The fact is: America has NEVER regressed. Time simply doesn’t move backward. Every generation longs for the “good ole days”, but none of us ever get to go back. 

    Glenn’s scam is the same that preachers use and that even Obama used: the selling of HOPE packaged as TRUTH.

    Let me put it simply that I think we need to learn Balance all over.  Balance between God and Self Preservation, when we can do that again, we as a nation will stop the in fighting and do what is right for us as a Nation in God we Trust, Atheist need not apply.

    This “Becoming Aware” or Awakening to our role in relation to where the power resides in our country is crucial for us to restore the country’s vitality.  Similarly, people need to realize that the power over their health also resides in them and not in the health care system.  This is a parallel  argument and one just as crucial if we are to ensure a vital nation and people, given that the financial drain on this country from chronic disease will cripple the nation if not addressed.  People have been duped by social messages, corporate advertising and health care to give up their power over health to corporate medical care.  Proof of this is that we are the most over treated, examined and prodded country, yet have the most chronic disease and a lower longevity than country’s that spend less than half the money for health care.  This will get even worse with Obama Care because more people will be drawn into the system at even younger ages.  Already, lipitor is being prescribed to children.  Please check out my book, Naturvore Power.  It was recently reviewed by Midwest book Review and was “Highly Recommended”.

    Love the story and the truth you received from it I do pray that the country awakens to what is happening I always tell it like this if you are not a farmer you want understand but when I was at home and we had to get the hogs up you didn’t drop all the feed down in one spot you put a little at a time down all the way in the pen then you shut the door the hog would never look up at what was happening that’s the way a lot of people did they was just fed this pie in the sky and they never looked at what was about to happen to them now the door is shut and the pie is beginning to taste like slop.

     The real power is in Jesus Christ.  He died for all and now he looks for the lost sheep continuously.  God does not want one to perish.  When this country turns back to Him, we will see a huge difference. We cannot do it alone. We are not powerful enough without Him.

    There is nothing like that moment when we get it. When we catch a glimpse of the Lord in action and know without doubt He is interceding in our lives. I had one of those precious moments when the Holy Father called the faithful to pray for peace in Syria and the world. It didn’t take long before we heard Putin, of all people, offered a solution instead of bombs. It may not be a perfect solution, however, we weren’t praying for perfection, but to stop the escalation of violence. 

    As to the lost, Mr. Beck, just keep praying. We are not always blessed to see the Lord in action, but He never rests. God is closer to us now than He has ever been before in this time of great trial. As an author, all we writers know how our stories end. So does the very Author of all Life. Have faith and may you be blessed with abundant peace. LB

    I STILL have lib friends who are SO asleep. One is STILL arguing that Obama has not sent weapons to Syrian rebels, in spite of the fact that I have put three recent articles NOT associated with a conservative “agenda” in front of her. She tells me my hatred (of Daddy O) is getting in the way of my ability to see the truth. I no longer even try with her. There are two others just like her. I have given up. Some people prefer to keep the scales on their eyes….it’s very frightening to SEE the truth sometimes.

    Great story about the lost sheep. The reason my husband and I wrote and illustrated  our book is to show everyone 101 inspirational bios of famous Christians who loved God and lived by His principles.  FACES OF TRUTH, A COLLECTION OF HISTORICAL BIOGRAPHIES  is educational as well and is needed in America right now to show people their roots and that we are a Christian nation founded on Christian principles. Don’t be fooled by the media’s view of America. There are plenty of people out there who are living for God.

    I have one quibble with this opinion: God doesn’t do bad things nor does He allow bad things to happen. He respects our choices. Now, barring the possibility that the massive election fraud that occurred had a hand in reelecting Obama, which is a possibility, many millions CHOSE to reelect Obama as President. Just as God doesn’t force His free salvation on any one of us but lets us choose, so God doesn’t infringe on our choices as to whom we elect into office. He is a perfect gentleman and respects our choice. God didn’t do this, we did it to ourselves.

    Bad things can happen.  Like you said…… we choose……… God can’t interfere with our choices………… and sometimes God can’t stop the Bad which does happen, because it was someone’ free will……… God can’t stop the bad, so in a sense, he does allow it to happen to judge those who use their agency wrong.

    I raise a few sweet churro sheep, who have also been attacked by dogs. Sheep are braver and more resilient than people know, even if they are attacked in a vicious manner. There is hope, if I just respond the Master’s call to “feed my sheep.” This is applicable on a nationwide, communitywide and family basis. I won’t tolerate the wolves, coyotes or dogs that attack them but I will ask myself, “what am I doing to help find the lost sheep?”

    As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion,—as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen [Muslims],—and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan [Mohammedan] nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.

    Where the preamble declares, that coercion is a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, an amendment was proposed by inserting “Jesus Christ,” so that it would read “A departure from the plan of Jesus Christ, the holy author of our religion;” the insertion was rejected by the great majority, in proof that they meant to comprehend, within the mantle of its protection, the Jew and the Gentile, the Christian and Mohammedan, the Hindoo and Infidel of every denomination.
