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 .
