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 .

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
