When will Christians wake up to the reality of our situation?

As I prepare for tomorrow's radio and TV show, I am reading the news and trying to decide what I should say to you tomorrow.

I have a team within 100 meters of ISIS on the front lines tonight.

Mercury One has teams working in many different countries in the Middle East, South America and Europe, trying to get them to accept Christians who are being targeted for death by people who are worse than the Nazi scourge of the 20th century.

Russia is filling the power vacuum in the Middle East. Our presidential candidates are a side show. A socialist has doubled the Obama crowds in '08. We funded abortions last week. People in South Carolina are suffering. Europe is under siege. Jerusalem is under attack tonight. Our financial system is in far worse shape than it was in 2008 and I for one am still in shock from what happened in Oregon last week.

No one seems to notice that we are in grave danger. No one in the Christian world is really waking to the reality of their own situation. The kid with the clock gets a White House invite and the press made him into a kid persecuted for his religious belief.

But when college kids are asked if they are Christian and if they answer "yes," they are executed, the media yawns. Worse yet, our friends and even fellow Christians will ask: "what persecution?"

What do I say to those people? How does one wake up a people refusing to wake. What happens to those who become the target themselves because they refuse to sit down and remain quiet?

I only know the answer to the last question. What happens to those who refuse to sit down?

If they have love in their hearts - they change the world.

Please join me on my journey to become the person we were sent here to be. I no longer know how the world defines the word Christian, but I believe it starts with those who demonstrate a fierce and active love.

This week I will introduce an idea we are calling "take a walk." More on that in the next few days.

Tonight, I want to leave you with a note from one of my producers to his Facebook friends.

-------

This is a time for Christians, ALL Christians to stand... This should be another defining moment for our faith and our generation in this country.

Persecution has yet happened again like it has in the past where the enemy calls out Christians to stand and instead of backing down and sitting down they stood up with strength and honor.

They stood and died for our faith. They are Christian martyrs. Our brothers and sisters were murdered this past week for standing up for their faith.

All the while, the media tells the stories of those Christians under their breath and in a passing comment or quick story. The media then gets right back to who this shooter (the enemy) was.

We as a nation are too focused on the enemy and not focused on the heroes.

We as a nation are reporting on the "persecution" of an Islamic kid who brings in a clock that looks like a bomb and he gets a presidential invite. But when it comes to the persecution of Christians who were targeted and murdered all we get is a quick headline and then the MSM goes silent.

So the question for us is who are we?

WE ARE CHRISTIANS!

We act when God says act, we move when God says move, we stand when God says stand, and we love when God says love... Are we going to do something? Or are we going to sit and watch as this gets worse?

I want to see all Christians ready for what is to come. I want to be like those in Oregon who, when called upon to answer the question, "Are you a Christian or not?" said, "Yes, I am a Christian."

How do you get to that point?

Pray, read and study God's Word. Understand and learn who God is! Learn His attributes. Learn that we are warned multiple times in the Bible that these times would come.

We are there, people, and it's only going to get worse.

The fights are coming... But, we will fight back like Christ fought, with LOVE.

This is a time where Sauls become Pauls.

This is a time where heroes are pointed out. This is the time to rise as a faithful child of God who is willing to give up everything for HIM.

Check your heart, ask God to cleanse your soul and clean it out of any impurities and then wait and listen to what the Holy Spirit has to say.

Stop saying, "I am messed up and I'm working on getting better." I'm sorry, but the "working" time is over!

The time has come to change!

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) once predicted the coronavirus death rate would be between 4 and 5 percent, but they've just come out with a new report and those predictions have been adjusted significantly.

According to the CDC's latest data, the fatality rate among Americans showing COVID-19 symptoms is 0.4 percent. And an estimated 35 percent who are infected by the virus will never have any symptoms. Therefore, the CDC is now estimating COVID-19 kills less than 0.3 percent of people infected.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere recalled when the mainstream media went into overdrive, hammering President Donald Trump for predicting the final COVID-19 death rate would be "under one percent."

Looks like the president was right all along.

Michigan barber Karl Manke isn't a troublemaker. He's a law-abiding citizen who did everything possible to financially survive during the COVID-19 lockdown. pandemic. Eventually, he had no other option: he had to reopen his business in defiance of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home orders.

In an interview on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Manke, 77, told Glenn, "I'm not backing down" despite Whitmer's seemingly vindictive attempts to shut down his business.

Shortly after reopening, Manke was ticketed for violating Whitmer's stay-at-home order and charged with a misdemeanor. When he still refused to close his doors, the governor's office went a step further and suspended his barber license.

"It's kind of a vindictive thing," said Manke. "I've become a worm in her brain ... and she is going full force, illegally, when legislatures told her that she was out of place and this was not her assignment, she decided to take it anyway."

On Thursday, the Shiawassee County Circuit Judge refused to issue a preliminary injunction against Manke. Read more on this update here.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.
