On his radio program today, Glenn Beck suggested that the Republican presidential primary race is going to be dragged out all the way until the national convention because God wants to allow everyone to have their say before He removes his hand of protection from his nation (presumably for failing to nominate or elect Ted Cruz as president.)
As he explained, God is “making sure all of us are accountable” for what happens to this nation, saying that while presidential primary contests are usually settled relatively early on, things are different this year because God knows that the fate of the nation is at stake.
In America today, just as in the Old Testament, Beck said, “the people cry out for a king and God and the prophets stand up and say, ‘Don’t do it, don’t do it.’ And the people cry out for a king and God and some people stand up and say, ‘Don’t do it, don’t do it.’ But those people who are standing up are always in the vast minority; ‘Don’t do it, you don’t want a king.’ And then, usually, the third time they cry out for a king and God’s like, ‘Whatever. You got a king.’ He doesn’t stop your free choice; you have free choice. Because we have a covenant with God that started with George Washington, because we have a covenant, I think before He withdraws His protection, He just wants you to be clear and He doesn’t want New York to decide for you, He doesn’t want New Hampshire to decide for you, Florida, Iowa.”
“This thing is going to end at the convention,” he stated, “but it is going to end with each one of us having to decide and writing our name down, do you want a king or not?”
