Restoring Courage Recap Part 2

Read Part 1 here

Following Dr. Evans’s stirring speech, more leaders of faith joined Glenn and David Barton to share their tales of inspiration and love.

Rabbi Shlomo Riskin spoke at length about courage and love. “I am overwhelmed by the presence this evening of so many of our Christian brothers and sisters united with us by their great love for Israel,” Riskin said as he opened his speech.

Rabbi Riskin discussed many things, among them the difference between courage and strength. Riskin said that while “strength” revels in power, “courage” reaches out in love. “Indeed, Courage begets and demands love; the very Hebrew word for love Ahava, derives from the root verb HAV which means to give,” Riskin explained.

“To give to and to love someone who is like yourself is only an extension of loving yourself; that is merely the self aggrandizement of strength not the self sacrifice of courage. To love someone who is different from you, who disagrees with you, who may be weaker or stronger than you, smarter or stupider than you, of a different color or different ethnic background from you – that requires courage, the courage to applaud and love difference, otherness,” he continued.

Riskin was happy to see so many Christians standing with the Jewish people and with Israel at the Restoring Courage event.

“Despite the fact that we are different, that we are Jews and not Christians that we accept Jesus as a Jewish teacher but not as a messiah or a god. You have the courage to stand together with us we feel your heart, we respond to your love, especially in our time of need even today as rockets and missiles and grads are falling on the Southern part of Israel. The love relationship between us proves the amazing power of love of God – sent love to all of his children and it is one of the great miracles of our very fateful and glorious times,” Riskin told the audience.

Pastor Tom Mullins also spoke, focusing on the charity of God’s divine love. He told the story of Nehemiah, who while living in exile received word that Jerusalem had been laid to ruins. After fasting and prayer, Nehemiah did the impossible and led people to restore the Holy City in just fifty-two days!

“In just 52 days the impossible became possible. The gates and walls of the city were rebuilt! Even their enemies couldn’t help but see God’s hand upon them. One man’s compassion fueled a dream of great possibility. One man’s compassion united a nation. One man’s compassion brought a people back to God. When the compassion of God’s love flows through us, we are compelled to make a difference with our lives.”

“Together, may we be filled with the same compassion as Nehemiah – driven to our knees in prayer and committed to make a difference. Together, may we stand to honor the covenants of God with great conviction and charity, unwilling to shrink back from our duty,” Mullins said.

The final guest speaker was Pastor John Hagee, a man of faith who has come under attack in the United States but has remained a firm proponent of Israel. Pastor Hagee’s speech, which encouraged audience members to declare themselves as Israelis, moved people to cheers as well as tears.

“All free men, wherever they may live, are citizens of Israel,” Hagee told the crowd. “Therefore as a free man, I take pride in the words – I am an Israeli.”

“Israel’s fight is our fight. If a line has to be drawn, then let it be drawn around both of us – Christians and Jews, Americans and Israelis. We are one, we are united, and we will not be discouraged and we will not be defeated,” he told the audience.

By the time Pastor Hagee left the stage, the crowd was proudly standing on their feet.

As Glenn returned to the stage to close out the program, he again called for the people around the world to stand with Israel. He also asked the Israeli people to know that while the governments of the world may not be standing with their country, the people of the world were. “We are not our governments. We stand with you.”

Glenn then brought participants from throughout the show to make a declaration of courage, love, and support. He said that he would soon be calling on people around the world to make a similar declaration.

As Vernessa Mitchell again dazzled the crowd with a her powerful vocals, a dramatic fireworks display lit up the amphitheater and the coastline, bringing the first night of events to a dramatic end.

Tomorrow, join Glenn, Dr. Mike Evans, and others for the second Restoring Courage event, The Courage to Remember. The event will air on GBTV LIVE at 1:00pm ET, and be rebroadcast at 8:00pm ET! Sign up here!

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.

Note: The content of this clip does not provide medical advice. Please seek the advice of local health officials for any COVID-related questions & concerns.
