Timeless Scriptures of Comfort for the Righteous Oppressed by the Wicked in Power
The day you realize the Wicked (appear to) have the upper-hand over this cockeyed World with no repercussions for their devilry is a sad day. You lose your philosophical innocence and wide-eyed wonder in this world that, despite so much evil, is still heart-achingly beautiful.
For some of you, like my husband Michael, that realization has been your reality since birth. There never was a wide-eyed innocent wonder at this beautiful world for Michael. Only horror. As a son of a drunken, viciously abusive man, Michael has never seen the world's potential for goodness through rose-colored glasses as I have. Like so many other Abuse Survivors, early abuse resulted in him being a "shit magnet" for many years.
I was blessed with parents who shielded me from the vicious side of life, perhaps too much. My first three decades were spent with my nose buried in a book. Sometimes I'd look up at the Real World but Reality couldn't hold a candle to C. S. Lewis or Tolkien so I dove back into wonderful books where Beavers can talk and Good always triumphs over Evil.
My red-pilling (kickin' and screamin'!) about this cockeye World and Life in general came in 2012 when we married and I found myself deluged in a shit storm so bizarre my pet name for Michael changed from "Honey" to "Job"...y'know, the guy in the Bible who was "blameless and upright" but had his life destroyed yet still refused to "curse God and die." That's Michael.
From a fourteen year (and counting!) SSDI fraud (know any good attorneys!?!) to Parental Alienation compounded by SSI fraud that ended in the death of the victim, Caitlin, to Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis (lung disease) to the Deep State's bloodless election coup in 2020, I finally got the message: From time immemorial the Wicked have demanded and gotten incredible power to oppress the Righteous.
It's cold comfort, yet still soothing, to realize the inspired writers of the Bible, and Jesus himself, coped with this too. It wasn't their fault. It's not our fault.
Since the Fall of Man, it's just how this evil little planet works. And, according to Revelations, it's gonna get worse before it gets better. Heck! The Deep State is blatantly using Revelations as their script, the bastards!
Today's article is simply a collection of Scripture verses, some set to soaring music, that are thousands of years old yet speak perfectly to the dismay we're living through today. There really is nothing new under the sun. The Wicked may get more techy-techy in their wickedness but it's basically same shit, different millennium.
Verses condemning the Evil flow into verses expressing God's love and comfort for the Righteous Oppressed. Even if Justice isn't meted out to the Evil in this world, there's always the next and for some of them it might be a trifle, ahem, warm. Even toasty.
May these verses encourage you as much as they encouraged me.
As always, fellow Inklings, C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien said it best:
I hope this article was a comfort to you.
Just remember: God wins!
If not here in the Shadowlands, then in Eternity.
