Glenn: Better days are right around the corner

There is so much going on in the world that could cause someone to question their faith, but this morning on radio Glenn shared some of his own thoughts on what the future holds and why he believes “better days are right around the corner.” Despite the gloom and doom that often seems inescapable, Glenn explained why he believes faith will always triumph.

“I want to share something with you that crossed my mind this weekend, Glenn said. “I believe in divine providence, and I believe that tough times are coming and have for a long time. I know that people think that I'm only trying to do that to scare you… But I think everybody who is listening has an alarm bell going off on them.”

Part of the reason Glenn has poured so many resources into TheBlaze is because he believes hard times are coming, things will come crashing down, a reset will be needed, but there will be a opportunity to benefit from that reset, if people are prepared.

“So I believe that tough times are coming, but I also believe that means opportunity. And I don't believe that it is the end of the world,” Glenn said. “But here's where I am. If you don't know what you believe, you don't make it. When you are going in and being dropped into combat, the reason why that phrase is ‘There are no atheists in foxholes’ is because everybody has to decide who they are. What is it that you can count on? Can you count on your family name? Can you count on your money? Can you count on your position?”

While an atheist counts on his/her intellect, Glenn candidly admitted that he is not smart enough to navigate everything that is happening in the world today on his own. Instead, he relies on divine providence.

“I need some divine providence. I need some extra inspiration, and I have come to a place that the more I realize that, the better things become. And I have let go more and more and more,” he explained. “People will ask me, ‘Why did you make that decision of X, Y or Z?’ God. ‘Well, what does that mean?’ I made that decision. I searched it out and I thought this would be the right way to go and then I prayed on it, and I fasted, and I really thought about it. And I said, ‘Whatever you say is the right thing to do.’ And that's how I make my decisions. And sometimes those decisions surprise me. There are things that I do that I'm like, ‘I don't see a way for that to work out,’ but that's what I feel like I'm supposed to do. So I do it.”

Glenn used an analogy from the Bible to further explain his point. There is a story in the Bible of Jesus talking to a rich man who has all the accolades and material possessions one could hope for. The man approaches Jesus and asks him what he can do, how he can help. Jesus responds by asking the man to give up everything he owns.

“Now, the left will make that into an anti‑money thing, an anti‑rich thing, but it's not. It's a guy who has no faith,” Glenn said. “He has put his faith into things that are fleeing. When you're in the foxhole, your money, your reputation, your connections mean nothing. It doesn't work that way… God's not asking you to get rid of your money just because you're well off or you have more than your neighbor. God doesn't have a problem with the money thing. The money thing is irrelevant… So it's not that God needs money… Money is a function of this world, and if you understand that concept, you can feed people around the world. You can feed. You can help. You can teach. You can free people with that money. So he doesn't want you to be poor.”

So what is it then that God asks of us?

“He needs you to understand one thing: Count on me. Count on faith. If I tell you to do something, don't count on your education. Don't count on your certificates or your money or your family or anyone else. I'm the one,” Glenn explained. “He's asking for faith, not money. He's asking you not to give up your money or your position or anything else. And this is what I'm asking you today. I'm asking you to give up your doubt. Too many people are walking around right now and they are doubting that we are going to make it. They are doubting too many things. Stop doubting. We won't make it if we doubt. We will make it when we understand how things work and that we will make it.”

“Better days are right around the corner. And I might be poor… But then I think back on the time when I really had nothing,” he continued. “We're going to make it and it's going to be good because I have faith. And this weekend I decided not to get rid of just my stuff but get rid of any kind of stuff that would make me hedge my bets. I believe in Him. And after we do all that he's going to take care of the rest. And I've pretty much done all that I can do. It's his turn. And I have no doubt that miracles are on the horizon.”

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
