Accused of preaching to the choir, Glenn tells the choir to 'get out of the loft'

About two weeks ago, Glenn was reading the Old Testament in the book of Jeremiah. Afraid of what he was reading, Glenn asked a rabbi for clarification.

"I was hoping that he would say 'no, you have it wrong.' I don’t," Glenn said.

What Glenn learned had him scrambling to share a warning to America that unless we change our ways and start acting differently, this time in history will be a black scar for our nation. Glenn made it clear the message won't come comfortably to most people, just as it was not comfortable for him.

"They say you’re preaching to the choir. I know that," Glenn told his studio audience on Thursday. "The choir has got to get out of the loft. This is different than where we have been before."

He then expounded what he'd learned from the ancient prophet and compared it to our day when facing things like the Iran nuclear deal, Planned Parenthood and other life verses death issues.

"Well, what is Jeremiah saying?" Glenn asked. "The first thing he says is you better stop listening to the liars."

GLENN: I just said to the audience I don’t know if this show is going to work for a lot of people. I’ve heard from people too that agree with me, but they say you’re preaching to the choir. I know that. I know that. But you know what, the choir has got to get out of the loft. The choir has got to get out of the loft. This is different than where we have been before. You don’t need to understand it anymore. I think we all understand it. Don’t we all understand it? You look at the things that happened just yesterday, and I got it, I got it. We’re in trouble, so now what do we do?

I am not a preacher, and I am not a guy — I am the worst guy to bring you this stuff, really. I mean, I’m the guy, if I would have been obedient, I would have been prepared for this time, but I was afraid of what I heard in my prayers. Read your Scriptures because you’re going to need them. I don’t want to need my Scriptures. I don’t want to need them. I like my life the way it was. I was afraid of what that meant. I didn’t know what it meant, but I think it means right now because I wish I knew these better than I do.

About two weeks ago I was praying what message do people need to hear? What do you want me to say? Because I don’t know what to say. I heard that I should read Jeremiah. I don’t like reading those guys because it never ends up well. There’s never really a happy ending. When I got to Jeremiah 7, it’s like you know how sometimes you read, and this God on fire. I’m like okay, this is it.

I call a Rabbi friend of mine in Jerusalem, and he said I can’t teach you Jeremiah. I said well, there’s two chapters that I really kind of need to know. He said well, what two chapters? Because only two chapters we are allowed as rabbis to teach to Gentiles because there’s only two chapters that apply. I said well, it’s 7 and 27. He said good news, those are the two I can teach you. I was hoping that he would say no, you have it wrong. I don’t.

I just wanted to take you through what it says because I think we’re at that point. When we cross that line with Israel, when we cross this line with Planned Parenthood, we just crossed it. We didn’t stop it. We gave them more money, okay? That will be remembered in history books. When they look at our demise, when they look at what’s happening and what we did when we found out about it, that’s going to be a black scar. We gave them more money.

When we had a chance to stand with Israel next week, history books will remember us as people who chose death, chose death over life. This is the point where God is talking to Jeremiah, and Jeremiah is like okay, so what do you want me to say? God’s pissed. I don’t know if that’s the way a preacher would say it, but God was this. He says okay, let me tell you what to tell them. You better amend your ways and change everything that you do right now. You go tell them that, Jeremiah.

Oh wait, I’ve got a few other things. You tell them to amend their ways and change their doings, and then if they do, I will let them dwell here. Now, I happen to believe, my faith teaches me that this is a sacred land. This is one thing that’s different in my faith from other Christians. We believe that this is a sacred place, that the Constitution was divinely inspired, and this land is sacred. Our faith, my faith, teaches that if we go awry, God will take His mighty arm, and He will wipe it clean because this land is sacred, and it will not be defiled. It’s like a temple.

Well, what is Jeremiah saying? The first thing he says is you better stop listening to the liars, the liars that are telling you the temple, the temple, the temple. He says it three times, the temple, the temple, the temple. What does that mean? Lots of stuff about their rituals and everything else, but basically for us what it means is stop listening to the people who say we’re America, it’ll always be this way. There’s not going to be a problem, our money will always be worth something. It will always be like this.

God’s saying stop listening to the liars .

The Biden administration wants to fundamentally change our economy and they've made some truly game-changing moves in recent days, but you won't hear anyone in the mainstream media talking about it. If you want to know what the government doesn't want you to notice, pay attention to what the White House releases on Friday afternoons.

Last Friday afternoon — when fewer people would notice — the administration announced a new "comprehensive, government-wide strategy" to overhaul our nation's economy and protect us all from the "financial risks of climate change."

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck reviewed Biden's new climate finance report and explained why he believes the administration's plans to fundamentally change the economy is "the most dangerous movement in the world right now."

Glenn started out by playing a video clip of White House press secretary Jen Psaki telling reporters, "The President wants to make fundamental change in our economy, and he feels coming out of the pandemic is exactly the time to do that" during a press briefing last week.

"That's interesting because what she just said is the exact language, almost a quote, from the people over at the Great Reset, the World Economic Forum," Glenn said of Psaki's statement.

"This is the most dangerous movement in the world right now. It is a direct shot, by a railgun, at liberty. And when I started talking about this, about a year and a half ago, the system went into overdrive to call it a conspiracy. ... This is how they shut people down. They isolate and alienate you by calling the opposition conspiracy theorists. Everything is a conspiracy. Well, there are some conspiracies out there. But you need to know the difference between conspiracy theory and conspiracy fact."

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.
