Glenn's response to people who tell him prayer is not going to change things

Pastor Blair from Fairview Baptist Church in Oklahoma joined Glenn on his show Wednesday along with David Barton to talk about what he called the "Nehemiah strategy" in dealing with the problems in our society.

The strategy starts with pastors and individuals making a difference in their own churches, beginning with the way they pray.

David: At Restoring Unity, we had folks from all over the country, including a lot of pastors. One of those pastors is Paul Blair from Fairview Baptist Church in Oklahoma, outside of Oklahoma City in Edmond. You guys—by the way, football season is starting. You may want to hold that after all your years in the NFL as you talk today.

Pastor Blair: I was a lineman. They never let me touch one of these.

Glenn: Last time we spoke, Hutch was with us. He’s gone. He was, man, just moving forward. Tell me what we can learn from you and your church or what you saw in Birmingham, what can we learn to change things?

Pastor Blair: Well, God has always raised up men of God to proclaim the truth in the culture and stand against unrighteousness. We see sin in Genesis 3. We see the lineage of Cain in Genesis 4. In Genesis 5, we see God raising up Enoch to proclaim truth in an ungodly generation and warn them of the actions of their ungodliness. Quite frankly, we can sometimes be so overwhelmed when you look at a country the size of the United States of America and the number of people we have, and you get to the point you go well, what can I do?

One of the things that I really enjoyed about this weekend is the emphasis of the Nehemiah strategy. Each pastor, in fact, each person can make a difference in their own church. Their church can make a difference in the community. You get enough churches working together in a community, you can transform a city. You get enough cities working together, you can transform a state. You get enough states working together, perhaps we can transform the country.

Glenn: I said this on radio today and I want you to hear me clearly, there is no other answer now. I have talked about this for 15 years, we’re passing all the exits. They’re all gone, the bridge is out. There’s no other answer, so now we all have to act as individuals and just be seen standing, if nothing else, be seen standing even if you’re all alone, not by anybody else but by God.

Pastor Blair: Well, one of the things that David has always pointed out is the biblical influence, the biblical worldview was incorporated by our Founding Fathers into our systems of government. We have gotten conned into the idea in the modern Christianity that living by faith is doing things the way I want to do them and then praying that God would rescue me out of the mess that I’ve made. That’s not what living by faith is. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. If we would actually apply the Scripture to the way we conduct ourselves, whether it be family, business, civil government, whatever, we’d see the results.

Glenn: I get a lot of people who write to me and say, yeah, Glenn, yeah, yeah, yeah, prayer, prayer, prayer, prayer, prayer. Prayer is not going to change things. No, it’s going to help, but it’s not going to change things. Action, living what we say we believe is going to change something.

Pastor Blair: I love the story of the Israelites. Shortly after they had come out of captivity in Egypt, they were attacked by the Amalekites. You see two battles taking place. You see Moses up on the mountaintop with Aaron and Hur helping him give his hands raised to heaven. As Moses is interceding in prayer, then you see Joshua and everybody else out in the valley literally engaging in the three-dimensional world that we live in. So, the battle must be fought in prayer first but then also in action. We’ve got to put shoe leather to our prayers.

David: And it goes back to the individual. We talked about the great awakening. A lot of the great awakening, most of the meetings were outside the church. There were some churches participated, but it’s individuals making the difference.

Glenn: From the very beginning, the churches, they fought all of this. They fought it in the first great awakening. They fought it at the second. It was the rebel pastors that dumped—a lot of the churches were preaching slavery was okay because it’s what the people wanted to hear. It was the rebel pastors that went out of the church, and it’s going to be that way again. We get too soft and cushy.

Pastor Blair: And when has the church not been controversial?

Glenn: Now.

Pastor Blair: Well yeah, but always in the Scriptures, it was always controversial.

David: Yeah, when it does what it’s supposed to do, it will be controversial.

Pastor Blair: Accused of turning the world upside down, always want to be taught. Everywhere Paul went, he was chased out of the city.

Glenn: Right. Gandhi said I love you Christians. I love your Christianity, I don’t love you Christians. In your Bible, you have enough dynamite to blow up the entire world, and yet you don’t use it; you use it as a novel.

Pastor Blair: And that’s what pastors, all pastors—truth is true for all people in all times and all places. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a black pastor or a white pastor, whether you’re a country pastor or a city pastor, we have got to be boldly proclaiming the truth to our people and in our culture. Then we’ll see a transformation of society.

David: Yeah, and it’s the truth that is the unmoving thing, and right now we’ve got a lot of pastors deciding whether they want to jump off and get in truth because they won’t be liked if they say the truth, particularly right now. We’ve kept our mouths shut so long that now if you say the truth, you will get beat up.

Pastor Blair: But the reality is there should only be one commendation we’re looking for, and that’s a well-done, my good and faithful servant. We’re not supposed to get the Chamber of Commerce Pastor of the Year Award or MVP for the state chamber or whatever. We need to be bold enough to do what God has called us to do.

David: By the way, it’s not just pastors, individuals, the same way.

Glenn: Great to have you. Thank you so much. When we come back, one of the most memorable speeches from Restoring Unity was from a man who was instrumental in making it happen, in just a minute.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.

'I NEVER thought I'd talk about this': Was Glenn Beck's CHILLING dream actually a WARNING?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck decided to share a very unusual, extremely vivid dream he had ten years ago — a dream he thought he'd never talk about on the air until he began to see it as a warning that we should all know about.

"I never ever thought I would talk about this on the air, but I feel compelled to tell you that seasons have changed again, and it is becoming more and more apparent. You need to know what you're dealing with," Glenn began.

"If you are a long-time listener of this program, you know that one of the reasons I left New York ... was that I had a medical condition. Part of it was brought on by no REM sleep for about 10 years ... and for 10 years, I never had a dream," he explained. "However, during this period I had what could be described as a dream. I do not believe it was."

"In this 'dream' ... I am in a hallway of the White House. And I'm walking into a big room where there's a bunch of cubicles, and people look up like, 'who's walking in?' There are people behind me, but I don't know who they are yet. I just know I'm being pushed forward by them," Glenn continued. "I realize that everybody in the White House is terrified of who's ever behind me ... I glance back and I see people that are in uniforms that I've never seen before. I have seen them since, but that will be for some other time...."

"So, these guys in the uniforms are in the hallway, and one guy says, 'him, him, and him, take them out' ... and I'm the only one still sitting at the table. They go out ... then I hear three gunshots and they say, 'yeah, that happened pretty quickly for them. However, you, we're going to get to know ... because you really have no idea who you're dealing with.' And that's when one of them ... ripped off his face and he was Satan. Or, he was a demon, okay? Horrifying. Then I wake up."

Glenn went on to explain that, while the dream was so vivid and disturbing that he thought about it almost daily for well over a year, it was what happened next — during a discussion with a prominent religious leader — that really hinted his "dream" might actually have been a vision of the future and a warning.

"I will never forget it, and I will never dismiss it," Glenn said of what he learned. "I'm sharing it with you today because you must not dismiss what you're dealing with. We are not in a battle [of] politics ... our whole culture has become evil."

"You have to get to a point where you are going to choose a side. There will be no one left on the benches, and if you think you can sit it out you will end up on the wrong side. I urge you to know who you serve. This is a different time in human experience. This is not normal. None of this is normal," he warned.
