Fighting for goodness in a dark world
Does God exist? Our Lord Jesus Christ commented that "My Father worketh even until now." When I see a dog or a cat or a bird or a cow I am always amazed at the colors and details of their coat. You say "DNA did that" and "It's all in the genes"? Nonsense. Even if a "DNA Molecule" had trillions and trillions of base pairs, rather than mere billions, it could not contain the information in the coat. Millions of hairs. Millions of colors. All mapped on something that will soon be rotting in the field. And each sunrise and sunset. 'Though the HAARP and Chemtrail boys can mar our skies, even the wounds they inflict on the majesty of the Heavens are beautiful in the rays of the rising of the sun.
You say you believe in Darwinian Evolution, and that the Flood was a myth? Well, visit Hell's Canyon, or the Grand Canyon, or the Scablands of Eastern Washington State. Even the nihilists admit now these were rapidly carved by many flowing waters on a scale multiples vaster than anything we see today.
And if you cannot see God around you, you will certainly see Him in the pages of history. The Prophet Job said life is a warfare. The Gospel of St John is a warfare from the first verse to the last. And all history has been a warfare- from the Fall of Adam in the garden of Eden to when Moses parted the waters of the Red Sea to when King David was pursued by his son Absolam to when the Maccabees retook the Temple from the Geeks to the Great Events of that First Good Friday. And it continued as the Perfidious Jews leagued with the corrupt Romans of the first centuries to try and wipe the fledgling church from the face of the earth. But Constantine was given a Sign under which he would conquer, and Julian the Apostate would agree a century later: "Oh Galilean, Thou hast conquered!"
But the conquest had merely begun. The Benedictines took staff and rule and trod into the wilderness and extended the bounds of Christendom further than sword and chariot had those of Rome, so that by 900 AD a pilgrim could travel unmolested from Compestella to the snows of Moscow. And meanwhile, the greatest works of art the world has ever known arose over the soils of Europe- the majestic Gothic and Romanesque Cathedrals and Monasteries.
However, the weeds would also sprout amidst the Wheat of Christendom. "Ah but an enemy has done this!" In 1054 the Great Schism would rock Christendom. By 1204 three popes would claim the Holy Seat. The rebellions of Wycliffe and Huss were but a prelude to those of Luther, Calvin, and Cramner, whose echos continue to rend Christendom to this day. Protestant secularism would give way to the violence of the French Revolution, which not only warred against church and sanctuary, but against motherhood and hearth. That sordid tyranny against all things Godly and good would topple one throne after another, until all the world groaned under the religion of democratic tyranny.
But a Great Light has shone in this darkness, which comprehended it not. On Oct 13th, 1917 Our Lady, Star of the Sea, came to Fatima, and worked an undeniable miracle, the greatest public spectacle since Moses parted the Waters of the Red Sea, which were like a wall on the left and the right. A multitude that would have filled any modern stadium saw "the sun dance", and their cloths, soaking wet from an overnight rain which had not ceased until the apparition, were bone dry a scant six minutes later.
The demons, both human and angelic, made their plans for another horrific slaughter which history now knows as World War Two. All their puppets were in place, in Germany and Italy and Russia and England and Japan and Russia. All their assets were in place. And all the popes and preachers were cooperating. On January 25th, 1938, they finalized their bloody designs in their somber conspiratorial den of iniquity. But that night, a fiery red sky lit Europe, America, and Japan. Roosters crowed all during the darkness. Fire companies were called, because the red hues looked like flames on the horizon. A billion people wondered.
But those of us with Faith do not wonder. Daniel said that Abomination of Desolation cometh. Our Lord said that for the sake of the Elect those days would be shortened. And Our Lady of Fatima assured us that Her Immaculate Heart will triumph. It is always darkest before the dawn, and that dawn will be most radiant indeed. An era of peace will dawn when men will beat their swords into plowshares. The dromedaries of Madian will empty their gold before the gates of Jerusalem, and the Lion will lie down with the Lamb. And for a thousand years the great battle which took place in our time will be retold from generation to generation.
Dear Jeffrey, I don't need the church to believe in God. Although I was raised up catholic and went to a nun school, I saw evil in most of them, that's why I asked my mom to take me out of there. I always felt God around and inside of me,like a living force . God saved me so many times when I was in terrible danger. God/Yeheshua is my life force,my strength, my life. And that's all I know.
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Thank you Donald for the excellent post. I was brought up Catholic and even studied briefly for the Catholic Priesthood, which went a long way toward my becoming an ex-Catholic. I'm still spiritual, but not at all Catholic or any other "organized" religion!
I love reading your articles! They are chock full of great information and details proving your thoughtful viewpoints. We have lost our way, removing God from every part of our life. I continue to believe in God, I talk about him and his sunlight that shines in my life everyday. I don’t know how people exist in this world without a God to rely on? Thank you for your positive words of wisdom!!
My favorite verse, John 10:34--"Don't you know you are gods?" Or, "Don't your scriptures say, I said, You are gods." I'll take it.
A sage once said that if a man doesn't believe in God, he'll believe in just about anything. Be that as it may, organized religion is a mind control/mind fuck matrix that has little if anything to do with genuine spirituality. Recall years ago the blasphemous film, "The Last Temptation of Christ" wherein it was strongly inferred that Jesus was a homosexual. No Catholic, Protestant, or any so-called Christian denomination made nary a feeble protest. The Muslims however rioted outside many of the theaters showing it as even though they don't acknowledge Jesus as the Son of God, they revere him as a great and holy prophet. Maybe that's why Islam is on the ascendancy while Christianity sharply declines. In the apocryphal scriptures, (banned of course by the official church), Jesus chained the Devil but the Devil was strong enough to break the chains. Further, the Devil offered Jesus this world if he would bow the knee to him. Jesus of course refused, but you can only offer what you already possess. By any objective criteria, this is the Devil's world. I think the Gnostics were on the right track when they posited that there is no good or evil, only spirit and matter. Simply put, this realm we find ourselves in, even under optimum circumstances, is Hell. They also said that the flesh is the Devil's chains. A cursory examination of any nursing home or terminally ill ward of a hospital will confirm this. The Jew being the ultimate materialist thrives here. Jewish rabbis rape and sexually abuse kids even more than the Catholic clergy, and that's saying a helluva lot. However this inconvenient fact is largely shielded from public scrutiny because their fellow tribesmen own and control the mass media. Lucifer is not Satan, Don, you should look into this closely. Lucifer is actually the good guy. This is a very common misconception and error, deliberately promulgated, like the one that says the Jews are the chosen people. Well, chosen for perdition maybe. Thanks for a thought provoking article, Don.
Excellent piece Don
Happy Easter, Donald!
Yesterday I sent a clip of that great ending of Easter Parade (where Judy Garland sings to Fred Astaire) to my immigrant best friend...trying to explain to him what Easter was like before America 2.0, because it certainly has changed greatly in my lifetime. I was trying to explain what a big deal it used to be, at least in the sixties...the new hats, the new dresses, the stores filled with colorful Easter decorations. Mercantile Easter is but a fizzle now...at least in my godless state. Almost all Americans who tune in to the msm know about the "days" of Kwanzaa and Hanukkah...but what tiny percentage of Americans know that Easter lasts two weeks, beginning on Palm Sunday and lasting until the second Sunday of Easter?
Brian Shilhavy published an excellent piece about Substack yesterday, pointing out that it was just another big tech platform controlled by the same old controllers. He wrote that each time a Substack reader receives an email from one of the authors they have subscribed to, that email is appended with Google tracking codes. This explains why your emails announcing your latest post usually end up in my spam, along with the other authors I really want to read. However, the ones that I have never subscribed to, or have unsubscribed to, end up in my primary file...no matter how many times I mark them as spam. The growth of Substack in the last year has been primarily due to writers about the vaccine genocide having no other place to go...but once again, Google is there pushing the controlled opposition, and shadow banning anyone speaking the truth. We just have to accept that every part of the internet is controlled now.
I'm so glad that you chose this topic today.
People here may not have tuned into Saturday's America Unplugged show and don't know that you are continuing a discussion that Billy Ray Valentine started apropo to the Easter season.
I wanted to commend you all for the show and especially for the finale. It was like watching Wayne
crush a fabulous homerun, then you three followed him by all knocking the ball right out of the park
one after the other.
Wayne was a hard act to follow too.
I have more to say on today's topic, but I just needed to get that out of the way.
There are no atheists in foxholes. And I would add, no atheists after watching the miracle of the birth of a child.
Funny how, when things get REALLY scary or REALLY beautiful-- the first words out of almost everyone's mouth are;
"Oh My GOD!"
The existence of the eternal constant cannot accurately be denied but the presence of an omnipotent sense of baseline love is not easy to deny as it rises to the surface during times of the greatest joys and the deepest despairs. And we humanoids (probably the only creatures with "religion") seem to forget all about love during the massive in-between times when life is okay and we "don't need no interference from the invisible and constant truth.
Mencken's courage and deep thinking are not always pleasant or correct but they are almost always pin-pricks into some peoples balloons of illusion.
Two rather special Mencken comments were;
"Puritanism. The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy."
"We must respect the other fellow's religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart"
You don't seem very sure about it Donald...keep wanting to connect with God purposely ,with all your heart and soul, every minute every day,and when you less expect it, it will manifest, and then you will never be the same. Just be patient ,honest and humble in your desire. Hugs brother ✨
Great piece, Donald.
Your opening lines about Easter made me think of what has happened in Virginia. The Easter break for public school children has been changed to "spring break" and is assigned a week in March, when there's not much in the way of spring showing up in nature. That was obviously done to separate Easter from spring, in the minds of schoolkids.
I suspect that it's the work of the democrat party, which has magically become the majority party in the legislature of a decidedly conservative state. The democrat party is thoroughly evil to judge from their deeds, like changing the Easter break into spring break at a time when it isn't yet spring.
The "Northern Counties" around DC are the most democrat leaning parts of Virginia, as are the few locations where universities are located: Charlottesville, Richmond , etc., The democrat stronghold around DC, when compared with the rest of the state looks like a thimble compared to a tanker trailer, so it's indeed magical that somehow those few counties have come to control an entire state by "winning" elections all over the state.
Things like that, I call "magical" rather than miraculous. Magic is rooted in evil, while miracles are of divine origin.
