Elijah the “fearful” and “depressed” Prophet
A) The text of the speech by J.M.Bergoglio:
“But then Elijah «went down from the mountain and heard the news that Queen Jezebel, a cruel and unscrupulous woman, wanted to kill him for this, because she was an idolatress». And so Elijah «was afraid». Indeed, «he, the greatest victor, was afraid of that woman and departed: he fled». It was a fear that «made him feel downhearted». So much so….., that Elijah asked himself why: «I have done so much yet in the end the story is always the same: escaping and defending myself from the idolaters». It seems that «he no longer steps up: death is better, and HE SINKS INTO DEEP DEPRESSION. Lying on the ground, in the shade of a tree, he wants to die; he enters into the sleep that comes before death, that depressed sleep».
Therefore, ……, «in order to encounter God it is necessary for man to return to his position at the time of creation: standing and walking». Because «this is how God created us: at his height, in his image and likeness, and on a path». In fact, the Lord says: «Go, go forward, cultivate the land, make it grow, and multiply». He also says: «Go forth, and stand upon the mountain before the Lord». And so, the Book of Kings tells us, «Elijah stood up and, getting up on his feet, he went out».
In the Gospel, particularly «in the parable of the prodigal son», we see the same situation. It is the reality in which that child found himself, “when he was depressed, watching the pigs eat while he was hungry». At that moment «he thought about his father and said to himself: ‘I must get up and go out’ to find the father».
B) References to Scriptures:
“In truth I tell you, of all the children born to women, there has never been anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet the least in the kingdom of Heaven is greater than he. Since John the Baptist came, up to this present time, the kingdom of Heaven has been subjected to violence and the violent are taking it by storm. Because it was towards John that all the prophecies of the prophets and of the Law were leading; and he, if you will believe me, is the Elijah who was to return. Anyone who has ears should listen!” (Mat 11:11-15)
“But the angel said to him, ‘Zechariah, do not be afraid, for your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth is to bear you a son and you shall name him John. He will be your joy and delight and many will rejoice at his birth, for he will be great in the sight of the Lord; he must drink no wine, no strong drink; even from his mother’s womb he will be filled with the Holy Spirit, and he will bring back many of the Israelites to the Lord their God. With the spirit and power of Elijah, he will go before him to reconcile fathers to their children and the disobedient to the good sense of the upright, preparing for the Lord a people fit for him.’” (Luk 1:13-17)
Bergoglio is undaunted in carrying out his work of demolition of the greatest saints of God’s history. When Bergoglio is in front of the Lord, of Mary or the greatest saints of God’s history, he never misses a chance to upset their true stories and to ridicule, to humiliate and to demolish them.
Now Bergoglio said, twice, that Elijah “enters into deep depression” and that “he was afraid”.
But with Elijah, Bergoglio falls badly. Bergoglio would like to present Elijah as any another man. All true Christians know that Elijah was the greatest man of God and prophet of the Old Testament that has defended the true faith in God the Almighty Father. A brave man, without fear, that was not afraid to face alone all the unfaithful priests and traitors.
Elijah in his earthly journey tried fatigue for the hard and onerous mission that God entrusted him. Tiredness, not fear. With God’s help, Elijah won the fatigue and defeated all the unfaithful priests and traitors. Anything except depression!
The story of Elijah is quite actual. We seem to be back in those days. Hard and difficult times, where the true faith in the true God is greatly compromised by the unfaithful priests and traitors, that instead of taking care of the Vineyard of the Lord, they are concerned in serving idols, chasing impure passions and promoting false doctrines, false religious philosophies that do not come from God the Father Almighty, such as the new world religion of Bergoglio.
It is disgraceful that Bergoglio dares to define Elijah “depressed”. And it is disgraceful that none of those who say they have at heart the fate of true Christianity, make their voice heard in defense of the holy heritage of Christianity, represented by the life and virtues of the saints. The life of the saints belong to us and no one can distort it with impunity.
But if on one side Bergoglio is not ashamed to make fun of the greatest saints of the history of God, on the other side those who love and defend God, His history and the life and deeds of His Saints, are not ashamed to proclaim the Truth and to stand against Bergoglio and his ministers.
Already in the past, Bergoglio has derided many saints, including St. Peter, St. Joseph, John the Baptist: 1st, 2nd, 3rd; Noah; King David: 1st, 2nd. Without considering the injuries and insults aimed against the most holy Virgin Mary (“Our Lady was human and perhaps wanted to say to the Lord: Lies! I was deceived!“; “Immaculate Conception means that Mary is the first saved“) and to Jesus (“Christ has made himself sin … and sins … are in his body“; “The Cross of Jesus expresses all the negative strength of evil“; “When Jesus complains, is He blaspheming? This is the mystery“; “Jesus … made Himself like a snake, ugly to make you sick“; “The escapade of Jesus“; “The madness of the cross, that is the annihilation of the Son of God“; “Jesus does not say swear words but what He says is worse than swear words“; Jesus “has made himself a snake“…”And this is the mystery of the Christ“).
Now, as then, the Holy Spirit, that was in Elijah, will lead the children of God to face and defeat the traitors and unfaithful priests.
As Jesus says, the Spirit that was in Elijah and that proceeds in history, will win the spirit of evil and will pass traitors and unfaithful priests by the edge of the sword. And the Truth, One and Holy, Universal and Absolute (and not relative) will triumph.
Neither Bergoglio nor his ministers can stop the Holy Spirit that proceeds in the history and moves forward to win, unmasking iniquity and sin. The Spirit that was in Elijah will win the spirit of evil, and so others will fall into depression, not Elijah …
