LISTEN NOW! In a powerful and stunning interview on The Blaze, Glenn Beck sits down with Pastor Michael Youssef, author of Jesus, Jihad and Peace. As a native of Egypt, Youssef personally witnessed and experienced persecution during the 1960’s under Gamal Abdel Nasser. Youssef escaped this persecution in Egypt and became a citizen of America. With these experiences and realities, he sees the growing signs of his grandchildren growing up in an America that is identical to what he experienced in the 1960’s.
As Youssef shares what he is seeing, as a pastor himself, what is taking place, he brings a sobering reality. “We the pastors have grown comfortable; and we have valued our comfort; and our love for sports; and our financial security over and above the truth.” When asked about what to do to wake up the church, Youssef echoes what took place during the Presidential reign of Mohammed Morsi and how the hearts of Egyptians cried out to God. As a result, reportedly 33 million Egyptians filled the streets demanding that the leadership be changed. Youssef believes that Abdel Fattah el-Sisi was raised up and established by God as the current leader of Egypt. As we consider these events, we have to ask ourselves the sobering question: Is it persecution and hardship that will wake us up?
