Netanyahu's speech was warning for those who know this story from The Bible

Earlier this week, Benjamin Netanyahu spoke before Congress about the threat Iran poses to Israel. In the speech, Netanyahu warned that 2,500 years ago a Persian viceroy plotted to exterminate the Jewish people. History repeats itself now with Iran. Glenn believes that the speech was one of "the last spiritual warning" for the American people, and if we don't change our ways we will be destroyed.

Netanyahu said:

We're an ancient people. In our nearly 4,000 years of history, many have tried repeatedly to destroy the Jewish people. Tomorrow night, on the Jewish holiday of Purim, we'll read the Book of Esther. We'll read of a powerful Persian viceroy named Haman, who plotted to destroy the Jewish people some 2,500 years ago. But a courageous Jewish woman, Queen Esther, exposed the plot and gave for the Jewish people the right to defend themselves against their enemies.

The plot was foiled. Our people were saved.

Today the Jewish people face another attempt by yet another Persian potentate to destroy us.

According to Glenn, this portion of the speech was one of the final spiritual warning to the American people to wake up and side with the Jewish people, or you will face God's wrath.

Scroll down for Glenn's analysis:

"This is really critically important, and I'm not surprised that nobody in the media picked this up. This is something that we predicted, that I said in advance. I said [Netanyahu]'s coming during the week of Esther. This is the week the Jews remember Esther. So everybody was focused on 'oh, he's coming for the elections that are happening in two months.' No, he's not. He picked this week, because this is the week that the Jews remember what happened to Esther. And if you don't know the story of Esther, it's really quite critical here."

"Esther was a queen in Persia, and the king was somebody who was being misled by a guy named Haman. Haman was going to kill all the Jews and the king was going to allow it to happen. Mordecai was Esther's uncle, and he goes to Esther and says 'Esther, you have got to talk to the king.' Going to the king could get you killed. If you are not called in to meet with the king, he would have you beheaded, even if it's the wife."

"So [Esther] didn't know how she was going to get in to meet the king, then give [the warning] that Haman, his trusted advisor, was going to kill all the Jews. And Mordecai said, 'Esther, you were born for times such as this. You were put in this place at this time to stand. The Jewish people are going to survive, but if you don't stand, your people may not survive. The king's people may not survive. The Jewish people will, but you have to stand up.'"

"So what [Netanyahu] said in this speech, this is the week that the Jews remember that, and mark that on their calendar. And he came and in the middle of the speech, he said 'I come to you as Mordecai.' Now, I don't know if that makes Barak Obama the king or Haman, but the king was the king in Persia. Persia is modern-day Iran. So he used this week to say to the American people - I think we are Esther - and he was saying clearly to the American people you were born [for times such as this]."

"He didn't go to the president. He gave this speech, because he wanted it heard by the American people, and he said, 'I come to you as Mordecai', so he is addressing us as Esther. 'You were born for a time such as this. You need to stand. And listen to this.' He didn't say this, but this is what he was implying: You, as a nation, may not stand, if you don't side with the Jewish people today. God's commandments will tell you that. If you side with the Jew, you will survive. If you don't, you will not survive. So he was coming to us, without ever saying it, just in timing, you've got to stand up. You've got to stand up. We need America by our side; but more importantly, you need the Jewish people by your side."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
