Never trust the hand of man over the righteous hand of God

I just got up and read the news out of Nevada and then some of the comments on my Facebook page. Some of those so-called "supporters" of mine would scare me as much as Bill Ayers if I believed they were actual supporters.

A family in Nevada is in trouble. Dire trouble. The Republic is in the same condition.

But the news is conflicted as always. We  asked the family to join me on air last week. It did not happen.  Until I have spoken to them, I have not wanted to do more than report the facts as I understand them.

I will not assign ill intent to those law officers who are around the land. I do believe there are those in Washington on both sides of the aisle that would love nothing more than put an end to those "pesky rights", but I am not prepared to escalate an already tense situation by calling cattle pens "concentration camps". Nor am I willing to blindly accept that our law enforcement, local, state or federal are willing to kill American citizens over Bureau of Land Management land.

Could this become Waco or worse? Yes, if cooler heads do not prevail.

Know that those of you calling for violence over this Nevada standoff are not supporters or any kind of long-term fan of mine. I know it to be true, no matter what you say, because of this one pesky fact: I have eschewed violence since before I was on FOX News.

I have asked repeatedly, "Do you actually believe we are the people of the American Revolution?"

The answer is ‘No! We are more the people of the French Revolution’ and that ends in bloodshed, beheadings and an American Napoleon.

Long before you would issue a call to bear arms, you should issue a call to bear Bibles. God is the answer! He has called people to arms historically; I can't think of a time that He has called for it out of anger.

That was why I know that this new movie version of ‘Noah’ is an abomination in His sight. In the film, Noah was filled with hate for his fellow man. God is not nor are His prophets or messengers. Feelings of compassion, sadness, weariness and fear of a "coming correction" - but never hate and rage.

The rage you have is understandable. I feel it at times too. But then, I repent for my cattle pens "concentration camps" and beg Him for an answer. It is always the same.

Remember 2 Chronicles 7:14 : “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

If my people will just turn to me, I will heal them and their land.

Have we as a nation turned to Him? Have you?

I do not mean to lecture you or anyone else. I am so far away from a perfect man. In fact I am very much the "dispensable man", the opposite of the man I am striving to be, but I am working on it. I pour over my scriptures like never before. I rarely am with out them. I read them day and night, in bed, in the car, on the set, and at the dinner table and yet I am a million miles from where The Lord needs his people. For this too, I repent. "I am sorry Lord for not being ready for your call." I am one that is finding there is no oil in my lamp.

Never try to create your own miracles. Every time you will fail and make it worse. Moses thought he would make it better when he killed the Egyptian but it only delayed freedom.

I worry about the rancher and his family. The ranchers around him and all around the country. I was blowing the warning trumpets on this kind of usurpation long ago. But any fan of mine knows that I have also said that I will never call for arms with the state of our faith.

I, too, am a rancher but the ultimate rancher is God and we are His flock. I will follow His voice for it is the only one I recognize.

I am sorry, but as all MY real fans know, I believe Ghandi, MLK, Bonhoeffer and Jesus were right. I will follow their example. I know what that means or meant for them.

But I will stand with The Lord.

My feet shall be shod in the Gospel of Peace.

All will be right and in the end all will be well.

I will be a tool in His hands and come what may. So be it. There will be others behind us who will replace us and anyone who strikes us down will be doing us a favor. We will join Him and a lesson you can learn for MLK or even Star Wars: "If you strike me down I will more powerful than you can imagine.

I will give my children and the next generation of great Americans something to be proud of.

Violence begets violence. This rancher shares my faith and I have empathy for his plight. I know what he must feel like.

I am scheduled to speak with Clive Bundy on Monday's radio program. I would like to speak with him and the family in person and in private at their ranch. I am trying to arrange this even as we speak. I highly doubt that the government sees this as a good thing, but the truth shall set you free and men of God can bring reason and peace.

When I do speak with him whether in person or on air Monday, I will beg him to reflect on the life of Joseph Smith. They came for him and tarred and feathered him. He did not strike back.

He stood his ground, worked within the system. He spent time in jail. His life was hell. He did not lose his ranch. He lost his country and his life. He begged the Lord for assistance. He saw the "very jaws of hell gape open thy mouth."

Know thou, my son, that all these things shall give thee experience, and shall be for thy good. The Son of Man hath descended below them all. Art thou greater than He? 

Therefore, hold on thy way, and the priesthood shall remain with thee; for their bounds are set, they cannot pass. Thy days are known, and thy years shall not be numbered less; therefore, fear not what man can do, for God shall be with you forever and ever. - Doctrine and Covenants Section 122.

Pray for the Bundy’s. Pray for us all.

This post is not about the Bundy’s, this post is to remind you that my fans will never make the mistake of believing that I will trust the hand of man over the righteous hand of God.

Editor's Note: Glenn opened Monday's radio program with an impassioned monologue that further elaborated on this theme. Watch the monologue below:

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
