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!

Posted by Glenn Beck on Sunday, October 4, 2015

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."

Our Fourth Amendment, which protects our right to privacy, has never been in more danger. Journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain how the digital world has given leaders — both in government and corporations — the ability to not only spy on Americans, but to track their patterns of behavior, too.

Lara explained why, even if you think you have nothing to hide, you should be very concerned. Because these digital "human terrain maps" could be used to manipulate you in any way those in control see fit.

"The purpose of your privacy is much more than just being out of public view," Lara said. "There is really nothing that's more central to our democracy than the right to privacy. I mean, all of the rights in the Constitution have a real purpose, and a real value, and if we allow people to take them away from us, we voluntarily are surrendering that. We are lambs to the slaughter.

"They're not just looking at what you have to hide. They're looking to manipulate you into doing what they want. These are control systems. That's what they are," Lara explained. "What they do with the information is they create a 'human terrain map' for every single person on the planet, anyone within a digital signature or within their reach. They are creating a human terrain map that can be used against you, by anyone."

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.
