The God’s Sign


The Divine Sign

Every year, on August 15, an important Christian feast is observed: the Assumption of Mary into Heaven. According to the beliefs of the Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodoxy, Oriental Orthodoxy, and part of Anglicanism, this was the bodily taking up of the Virgin Mary into Heaven at the end of her earthly life.

This holiday is also observed by several Caribbean nations. In Colombia and Haiti, it is a nationwide public holiday. In Guatemala, it is observed in Guatemala City and in the town of Santa Maria Nebaj, both of which claim her as their patron saint. In Costa Rica, this day is combined with Mother’s Day. In Mexico, Assumption Day is an important festival. In Puerto Rico, it is one of the most popular festival events in the municipality of Cayey (south of San Juan).

On August 15, 2016 the Almighty God chose the sky of Chicago to cast his vote for president.

A “yuge” heavenly Donald Trump displayed on the Lord’s ceiling demonstrated to us that neither the place, nor the day were chosen randomly.

The Place

Thus, for the Chicago place: God reminded us of his displeasure for the unhealthy policies of the Illinois senator turned into president of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama. He constantly targeted his policies against the most blessed country on earth, which the Almighty still loves and protects.

For lefty Chicagoans this also served as a reminder for their ugly manners and despicable reception they had prepared in their Windy City for the then-Republican presidential candidate. On March 11, 2016 they brutally infringed Trump’s constitutional right of free speech by blocking his rally in the city.

However, this did not prevent Trump to easily win the Illinois primary on the following Tuesday, March 15, exactly five months before the appearance of the Divine Sign.

In truth, God sees everything and takes care of all things.
