Good day Doves. I have been reading for a little over a year but have been studying prophecy for longer. A friend directed me to the 5 Doves website and I've been enjoying the straightforward posts ever since.
I have tried to post before, but have had email trouble. I've been reading all the comments/statment about Glenn Beck and could not pass up putting my 2 cents into it. Some of you say we should discount GB. Some say his message of returning to our founding principles and studying our founding fathers is not worth it. I disagree. With both. I have felt the Spirit move in me when he talks about things prophetic. Whether they be current events or politics, I cannot help but feel God is using GB. I believe he knows this but maybe since his religion does not teach awareness of the Holy Spirit (I guess ... I don't know anything about Mormonism), he doesn't know why he "hears" God talk to him. I believe he prays and I believe he believes in Jesus as the Savior. Beyond that, I don't know WHAT he believes but PRAISE GOD I don't have to be the one determining his salvation. I have enough to worry about w/ my own!
LIke the man the disciples called out for using Jesus' name, Jesus says he is drawing people to HIM. The disciples are told to leave the man alone. In my opinion, God is bringing End Time events to the unsaved (and saved) through GB. He brings evangelical pastors and Christian historians on to help explain things. GB's drive to focus on the Constitution and the founding fathers is, I believe, simply a tool God is using to show us how far we've strayed from relying on Him. No wonder our government is corrupt with little or no hope of redemption, there's been few modern leaders who've openly spoken of God and their reliance and belief in Him to help guide them in leadership.
It makes me a bit angry and upset when people say mean things about GB. God is using him. We may not like his religion or agree with his life story, but he *is* being used... I know *I* feel it. The rally on Saturday was amazing. I've never heard so many references to God and Jesus as Lord an Savior spoken so openly in a public arena before that *wasn't* being lead by a Christian organization. If GB's program can lead just a few extra people to a saving belief in Jesus, then isn't it worth it? Give the man a break.
Thanks for letting me speak my mind.
Welcome to the Doves, Trish!
