Glenn Beck recently announced on his radio show that he is planning to hold a rally in Jerusalem sometime in August called “Restoring Courage.” This of course will be his Holy Land version of his “Restoring Honor” rally last August in Washington D.C.
I cannot imagine anything more ludicrous than Glenn Beck presuming to hold a rally in Israel named “Restoring Courage”. Talk about being clueless. Of all the countries in the world, he’s going to go to Israel and presume to take his act there and tell the Israeli people about courage?
What makes this more ludicrous is the fact Beck is a borderline anti-Semite. I’m sure he’ll just be adored in Jerusalem. Of course with Beck’s ego he’ll probably demand to enter the city on a white colt and have palm fronds thrown on the ground in front of him.
I’m really surprised he hasn’t scheduled it during the Passover, and then claim he didn’t know; like last year when he held is DC rally on the anniversary of Dr. King’s, “I Have A Dream” speech and then claimed he didn’t know it was the same date.
Beck recently visited Israel and Jerusalem, and he’s been doing his best Billy Graham impression, warning his listeners of impending disaster in Israel, because of a “two state solution that cuts off Jerusalem” from the world. Something no one has proposed, except in Beck’s frazzled mind.
“God is involved in man’s affairs, but so is the force of darkness,” Beck preached ominously. “I believe I’ve been asked to stand in Jerusalem. Many in the history of man have had the opportunity to stand with the Jewish people…and they have failed.” He asked listeners to “stand with me, in Jerusalem” in August.
So, now Glenn Beck has elevated himself to the roll of Prophet? He believes he’s been asked to stand in Jerusalem? He wants is listeners – aka his congregation – to go to Israel with him and to have a Glenn Beck crusade there?
He’s calling his Jerusalem crusade another “life altering event” (the same verbiage he used to hype his evangelical meeting in the DC) but now there’s a twist, it seems the powers of the Adversary are opposed to Beck and he’s warning his followers that the “very gates of hell” would fight his attempts to hold his rally.
OK, it’s official. He’s certifiable. He’s now declared he’s speaking for God, and that Satan is opposing him. Maybe Glenn he’s not opposing you, maybe he’s all the voices you’re listening to.
As I’ve said before, God works in mysterious ways, not stupid ways.
