Glenn Beck's "Great Awakening"?

Glenn Beck, who is scheduled for a major movie event today (July 22) to promote his anti-Common Core agenda, which is a way to maneuver state-controlled "choice," has some very mystical beliefs.

Beck has spoken for years about a coming Great Awakening, which is part and parcel of his Mormon doctrine, particularly an esoteric "White Horse Prophecy" concerning the American Constitution. In order to facilitate this "Great Awakening" he has garnered the support of Pastor Chuck Baldwin, pastor and former U.S. presidential candidate, to help set up a "Black Robe Regiment," and David Barton, to help revise history and support a re-write of the U.S. Constitution (the Con-Con agenda).

Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor" Rally, 2010

In his article "Resurrecting the Black Regiment" (New American, 9/4/09), Chuck Baldwin, explained:

"I am personally convinced that the only thing necessary for God to send another Great Awakening — along with the accompanying reclamation of liberty and independence —"
Concerning Glenn Beck's 2010 "Divine Destiny" event and "Restoring Honor" rally, Pastor Dave James (a critic of Glenn Beck) wrote the following in his article "Should we be concerned about Glenn Beck’s 8/28 'Restoring Honor' rally in Washington?":

And concerning the Divine Destiny event and the Restoring Honor rally, following the sentiment expressed in Pat Gray’s introduction at the Kennedy Center, NaplesNews.com published an article with the title, “The Fifth Great Awakening: The Restoring Honor Rally in Washington, D.C.” (The author, Edward Wimberley is a fairly well-known “educator and Presbyterian minister“):

The Second Great Awakening occurred almost a century later and resulted in the emergence of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints (the Mormons), The Seventh Day Adventist Church, The Advent Christian Church as well as the dramatic expansion of Baptists and Methodists throughout the Western States. The Third Great Awakening spanned the 1850’s through the early 1900’s and produced the “Social Gospel Movement,” Christian Science, the Holiness Denominations, and the Nazarenes. The leaders of this era included Mary Baker Eddy, Dwight L. Moody, and evangelist William Ashley “Billy” Sunday.

This Edward T. "Terry" Wimberly cited above, wrote in a "Guest commentary: The Fifth Great Awakening," NaplesNews.com, Sept. 1, 2010, that Glenn Beck's "Divine Destiny" event was "was predominantly (though not exclusively) a 'Christian' renewal prophetically introduced by a Mormon layman.... Thus began the Fifth Great Awakening."

The Free Republic published an article on August 29, 2010 titled "Beck & Palin's unholy alliance: Abramoff ally Rabbi Lapin and bigot John Hagee help 'restore honor'" which revealed:

Talk about Restoring Honor! Later in the rally, Beck featured Rev. John Hagee, the bigoted right-wing minister who called Hurricane Katrina " the judgment of God against the city of New Orleans" because the city hosted a gay pride parade. What a way to commemorate the fifth anniversary of that tragedy. Hagee also called Catholicism "the great whore" and said all Muslims "have a scriptural mandate to kill Christians and Jews." Poor John McCain welcomed Hagee's endorsement in 2008, only to have to reject it as more of his hateful proselytizing came to light. I certainly hope the Catholic League's Bill Donohue, who bashed Hagee in 2008 and called on McCain to reject his backing, will denounce Beck and Palin as well now.

Speaking of McCain, Sunday is the second anniversary of his greatest accomplishment, making Sarah Palin a national figure. How did Palin do Saturday at Beck's big party? Well, the two preening GOP titans seem to disagree about big issues. Where Beck described his rally as "the beginning of the great awakening in America" and said Friday night "This is going to change everything"....
John Hagee, Glenn Beck, David Barton and others SOURCE and SOURCE

From the "White Horse Prophecy" webpage, comes the following information about how some Mormons believe that they must establish a Theocracy to save America and the Constitution. (Perhaps Glenn Beck and David Barton support a Constitutional Convention to re-write the old Constitution with theocratic language??):

Some have speculated, on the basis of the White Horse Prophecy, that Mormons expect the United States to eventually become a theocracy dominated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church)....
Though there are doubts about the authenticity of the White Horse Prophecy as a whole, several sources attribute to Smith the idea that the United States Constitution would one day hang by a thread, and LDS Church leaders have issued similar warnings with regard to the Constitution....
Conservative Media figure Glenn Beck (who joined the LDS Church in 1999) has alleged that President Barack Obama "is going to bring us to the verge of shredding the Constitution, of massive socialism." On November 14, 2008—following Obama's election—Beck appeared on Bill O'Reilly's show The O'Reilly Factor and said that "we are at the place where the Constitution hangs in the balance, I feel the Constitution is hanging in the balance right now, hanging by a thread unless the good Americans wake up." Earlier in November, while interviewing U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah (also a Mormon), Beck remarked: "I heard Barack Obama talk about the Constitution and I thought, we are at the point or we are very near the point where our Constitution is hanging by a thread." Hatch appeared on Beck's Fox News show in January 2009, and Beck prompted him by declaring "I believe our Constitution hangs by a thread."
LDS blogger and religious commentator Joanna Brooks has said that "it is likely that Beck owes his brand of Founding Father–worship to Mormonism.... Many Mormons also believe that Joseph Smith prophesied in 1843 that the US Constitution would one day 'hang by a thread' and be saved by faithful Mormons". Washington Post journalist Dana Milbank has described Beck's views as essentially "White Horse Prophecy meets horsemen of the apocalypse"—though Milbank has also observed that the White Horse Prophecy is "actually a fairly benign prophecy. They're talking about restoring law and order and peace and tranquility. It doesn't sound like a violent thing." [footnotes removed]

Given all of this controversial information about Glenn Beck, why would you trust this man to decide the future of your children's education?!?
