Dolly Parton says virus is ‘lesson’ from God: ‘It’s gonna be alright’

Dolly Parton is telling the world to “keep the faith” amid the coronavirus pandemic.

In a sweet message posted to Instagram on Friday, the country icon said she believes God is teaching us a lesson via Covid-19.

“Well hello! It’s Dolly. Climbing the stairway to heaven ’cause this virus has scared the H-E-L-L out of us,” she began her video message in front of a small stairwell in her home, where she’s social distancing.

The “Jolene” singer said, “I’m not making light out of the situation. Well, maybe I am because it’s the light, I believe, that’s going to dissolve the situation. I think God is in this, I really do.”

She continued, “I think he’s trying to hold us up to the light so we can see ourselves and see each other through the eyes of love, and I hope we learn that lesson. I think that when this passes we’re all gonna be better people.”

Dolly said she’s maintaining a “positive attitude” but is aware that many people see nothing rewarding about the pandemic. She’s also aware of the fears people have around the world.

“So just keep the faith, don’t be too scared,” she ended her brief message. “It’s going to be alright. God loves us.”

  1. We tell that to the dead and their survivors-Gods teaching you a lesson-thanks god for every natural and man made disaster! Devious Don & Disaster Dolly in 2020.

  2. I agree with you Dolly . . .God is not far away from anyone who believes In God.
    I also believe that God will communicate with those who are in favor of abortion . . . it will happen & Senator Schumer will be one of the first to realize. It is only a matter of time. Amen

  3. Amen Dolly. I believe you are right. But, All folks will not be better people. There have always been evil people. There always have been. There always will be.

  4. Dolly, I am w/you on this.

  5. I think this is teaching us we are not in charge ! We took GOD out of our life when we took prayer out of the schools and we should put him back where he belongs !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    GOD BLESS AMERICA !!!

  6. where’s my post ?!!?!?!?

  7. god bless you dolly. You are right on when God’s anger has passed then this will be over.

  8. Dolly is part of the problem by espousing homosexual marriage. If she thinks men with men and women with women is okay with God, she needs to go back to her Bible studies and take her friend, Miley Cyrus, who she adores, with her.

    • Your in the dark ages Thomas! If the world will change to acceptance of each other it will have to start with people like you. Man and man, woman and woman deserve to be together regardless of the bible. You should start to change your lack of love. No one is saying don’t be heterosexual and that you don’t deserve to be with the opposite sex. Why are you saying it to homosexuals, start to think for yourself especially when its right. GOD made us all of us for a reason. Focus on the positive and what homosexuals have given in science, arts, music, literature, etc. These are people that you admire and respect. STOP YOUR HATE is as contagious as this carona virus is.

      • Sorry, but God’s Word is God’s Word. We can’t say God is wrong and we are right. The evil in man always wants to do what is convenient for them. If you don’t like what the Bible says, then you don’t really believe in the Bible. You can’t pick and choose.

        • Here’s the thing you all are
          Missing when it comes to same sex relationships… it is wrong however we are not to judge to judge is to be judged.
          As far as Dolly’s comment I believe the Lord is fed up. Jesus died for us. He took our sins when he was whipped and beat through the streets.
          However if you don’t believe in what the Bible is teaching you and if you don’t believe in our father in Heaven hallow be his name… then you are doomed to see the pits of hell… then you will believe.
          I wish you all well God be with us all I do believe we all need him now and forever
          Amen

      • Have you ever heard of the destruction of Sodem and gomorrah?! read up on it.Yes there are haters. And there are those that are trying to tell you the truth for your own good!

      • Read revelations. World destroyed by fire. Doesn’t mean fire, fire. First symptom of virus temperature. God works in mysterious ways. Wars and rumors of war. Read. He is pissed.
        Man wed to man. Woman to woman. Garden of eden. Wake up fools.

  9. Dolly is right. God is always in control of every situation. We have been at each other’s throats for a long time now. It is time to realize that only love for each other and love for God will help us win in the future.

  10. DOLLY IS WRIGHT IT IS GOD SHOWING JUST WHAT HE CAN DO ! WAKE UP WORLD AND SEE THE LIGHT OF GOD ! THANK YOU DOLLY FOR BEING WHO YOU ARE AND TELLING IT LIKE IT IS! GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS BE SAFE AND KEEP TRUSTING IN OUR LORD!

  11. PATRICIA LINGAFELTER

    I BELIEVE DOLLY THAT GOD SAW FIT TO TEACH US A LESSON. THOSE OF US WHO THE KEPT OUR FAITH WILL BE ALRIGHT. I LISTENED TO THE SERMON FROM MY CHURCH STREAMED ON THE COMPUTER THIS MORNING. AS CHRISTIANS FAITH HAS BEEN WITH US ALL OF THESE YEARS AND IT WILL KEEP US STRONG.

  12. You are so right Dolly its a strong message from GOD no matter what continent you are from.

  13. DOMINIC PASQUAROSA

    A lesson for whom?? The mainstream media gives COMMUNIST CHINA all the accolades!!! Is this the lesson? The mainstream media and Hollywood are THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!!!! SICK!

  14. I can’t think of a single reason to justify that statement. Although I’m very fond of Dolly Parton as an entertainer and I know she means well, what could possibly be the lesson she’s talking about? People are suffering and dying every day, not enough test kits, health workers put their lives on the line due to shortage of supplies. The President is doing his best; but he was in denial until the medical community finally convinced him of the seriousness. I still don’t think he understands it yet.

  15. I’m with you Dolly… the only thing to fear is fear itself. Out of it grows hysteria and pandemonium which blocks us from the light, our faith and mindfulness of each other. Keep the faith. Everything is going to be all right no matter what. Keep asking god for strength, courage and patience in these times and all the time and you will be amazed by the peace of mind and help you’re given.

  16. I could not have said it better, Dolly. Love you, my sister in Christ.

  17. God is in charge, don’t be afraid, He knows what is going on.
    Trust Him

  18. Paulette Berkshire

    If you listen to the real news, you will see our President with God’s guidance is going to end this chaos and so much more. Yes, Dolly, I have faith.

  19. Keep the faith. God is with you. Keep praying that this China Virus will come to an end. Pray to the lord each day to end this Chinese attack on the world.

    • I believe that this is a very strong message for all of us from God. I tend to compare what this world has become to that of the time when Moses lead those who were Christians to the mountain where he wtote the 10 commandments. If you remember there were people who folllowed him who were rich with gold, silver and other material things who were not Christians. After Moses came down from the mountain and read the commandments the Red Sea started large waves causing a storm. As Moses came off the mountain he told the Christains to follow him and as they got to the sea it opened and a path was there for them to escape. The sinners continued to party and all of a sudden became aware of the sea and started to enter into it and follow the. Christians but as soon as the Christians made it to land the sea began to close and the water rushed over the sinners and they all drowned. God is coming again and when he does it will be with fire. Think about it. We have a tremendous amount of fires taking land, homes and some lives. Now this coronavirus taking lots of lives just makes me feel that our God is testing all of us and giving us all the chance to ask for forgiveness and get our lives in order for when he comes back that we have a better chance of being chosen to be the ones he saves. I just wanted yo share my feelings of how I see this as a second chance to get our lifestyle together and give our hearts to God. Only an opinion of mine. But I do love our God and hope to be one of his chosen ones. Blessing to you all sand Gods love to you as well.

      • NEWS FLASH!! The people that Moses led, those that crossed the Red Sea, those who were given the 10 commandments, and had the riches of Egypt given to them before they left were NOT (repeat NOT) Christians. They were Jews, the chosen people God had chosen to take His message to the world. Jesus won’t be around for another 3500 years, and believers in him won’t be called Christians until after he was dead, and it was a derogatory name given to them in Antioch. We are living in the last days and God is trying to get our attention to repent of our “selfish” lives and to return to Him before it’s too late. Most of the world will shake the fist at God, but for those whose ears are open and lilsten, we will receive a glorious eternal life in the presence of our God, where there is not more sin, no more tears and no more plague. AMERICA BLESS GOD

      • You are confused. Moses brought the JEWS out of Egypt thru the desert and yes he did have the following of Heathens (non believers in GOD) they believed in idles and statues. But all came out of slavery from Egypt with Moses, they walked thru the desert for 40 years until they came to Mt. Sinai to receive the 10 Commandments. People below did not want to give GOD the respect. Some gave up, partied when they did not get answers right away, or they just did not care about anything or anyone. Sidebar: They partied on the beaches and major cities (Spring Break, Mardi gras, bars). Moses and his followers were running for their lives for years from The Pharaoh of Egypt and his army. And they were catching up to them at the RED SEA. They were outnumbered and being pushed into the sea, that is when the sea parted, and the JEWS were led to the other side, the chosen people.
        Moses came before Christ so there were no Christians at that time. After the Jews settled in Israel, centuries later Christ was born in Bethlehem,Israel. Christians did not experience parting of the sea or Moses. Christians are derived from the name Christ he was not born before or during the slaved Jews in Egypt.
        Maybe you are right about GOD trying us to see how we handle this times. We have to be patient about how to handle this and not loose our mind. Just slow down and go to simpler ways. What goes up must come down and what goes down must come up. We will come up again, the Eagle will rise. Have Faith!!!!

      • The Bible teaches that if you are saved, you don’t have to HOPE God will take you, rather when you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you KNOW you will be in heaven with God!

        Read John 3:16!

      • We need to do penance and repentance. We pray for every one. We need more of us to pray and pray.During this Lenten season, we need to concentrate on our prayers, forgive and pray for those people. who have hurt you you in any way. We need to have faith and trust that God will never abandon us as long as we do not abandon him. May God bless us all.

    Well, This God Better Hurry Up! And End This Stupid Virus! Which Should NOT Be Here In The First Place!

  21. God has given the power to Mother Nature to do what need to be done to save herself, we don’t appreciate what has been given to us.A beautiful paradise, our Eden the most beautiful planet in the Universe and what are we doing ? Destroying killing, dirtying, polluting, Mother Nature has no choice but act own her behalf got all human in consignment, indoors she will punish those that do not listen , she is given herself time to take a clean breath, no pollution, no trash on the rivers ,no trash on the ocean the trees are cleaning the air of the world . Yes Somebody had to do it and she did look out side , what do you see? Free animals , clean air, clean parks , clean oceans Mother Nature is taking care herself , we humans must learn our lesson, we can’t continue destroying our world we need to take care , protect our world for our generations to come.

    • I feel your opinion is directed to the wrong nation. We do take care of our country as a whole from the inside, the private sector. Rules and regulations our government has put on major companies in this country and rightfully so to keep us clean. But we only have control in this country outside is a different story. India, China, Japan, I need not go on you can google it. These countries have a lot to learn about cleaning up and clean energy. They do not care about the Earth like we do in the USA they do not have the rules and regulations. You need to stop listening to angry un caring politicians that are screaming to get your vote only to do nothing for us after they succeed. Read and listen to innovators in the private sector that are not looking for a hand out or vote. They are doing something about change. Do not put our country down we are doing a lot, you just don’t hear about it unless you go after the information yourself. Put other countries on notice and stop buying from them, teach them a lesson on how to clean up and stop polluting. Do you know what your getting from China? Here is a country that is so dirty they throw food on the ground and then sell it. No refrigeration no protection open to anyone coming in contact with food.
      India has their cows feces in the streets and in the River Ganges where humans bathe. Does that make sense to you? Their minds and generations have not come out of the dark ages. I can go on and on.
      USA is the greatest country in the world that is why people want to come here to live and the evil want to destroy it. Don’t put it down!!!!!

  22. Didn’t God see this coming in the first place?

  23. Valerie Gallagher

    Yes ma’am you’re right God is in control and I know if things gonna be OK🙏🙏🙏 I have faith and I believe in Jesus name AMEN 🙏 Thank You Dolly 💜💋💯

    Dolly, thanks for your thoughts. While God is not willing that any should perish, wickedness on earth has reached heaven. Presently, God is getting the attention of people throughout the world.
    “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
    The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.” Psalm 46
    Our way out is clearly stated. “If my people which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
    This virus can vanish with the blink of God’s eyes. “I will not forget you… I have carved you on the palm of my hand”
    Isaiah 49:16

  25. Maybe God is just letting people use their free will. We turned our back on him a long time ago.

  26. Is it a coincidence that this virus pandemic is occurring at the same time of year that G-D visited plagues upon the ancient Egyptians?

  27. I hate to contradict someone with such a kind, beautiful spirit, but I must respectfully disagree with Ms. Parton. Granted, I did not hear her entire message, but I can assure you of this: unless when the sin illuminated by the light of God about which Ms. Parton speaks causes us to turn from our sin and repent, both individually and corporately, things will not get better. God is quite clear about that in His word. Romans 2:5 While God has already revealed His mercy so many times throughout this crisis, His judgement must not go ignored. God is a jealous god (Exodus 34:14), and He is pleading with us to forsake our idols and return to Him. But, He warns us that His spirit will not always strive with man. Gen. 5:2 So, as through this pandemic we learn to love one another again, with that pure Philia love, as we should, let’s not forget our first love…Him. Rev. 2:4 Remember, he that loveth not knoweth not God, for God is love. 1 John 4:8

  28. I just love Dolly. She is always so up and positive. I think our President is also trying to be upbeat and positive and telling us everything is going to be alright. Too bad there are so many naysayers trying to tear him down when he is doing the best he can to help. They certainly aren’t helping anyone.

  29. I’m with Dolly I have faith this will end soon God has givin me strength and patience to get through this as Dolly sang “I CAN SEE THE LIGHT OF A CLEAR MORNING EVERYTHINGS GONNA BE ALRIGHT ITS GONNA BE OK”

  30. Dolly is 100% right about god,
    we need to pay attention to her
    message

  31. I am TRULY with Dolly on this. OUR good LORD is right hear with ALL of us through this. And yes. I truly believe we will be a better people & country when this is over with. Thank you so much for sharing your feelings; Dolly. We will ALWAYS love YOU.

  32. Dolly you got that right! Have faith and trust
    in the Lord. Hold on to hope and pray for
    strength. God loves us all. Take your fears
    to the Lord. He is waiting to hear from you.
    I pray you all stay safe and healthy.

  33. God is always in control, we must trust in Him and stay close to Him in prayer. God always delivers what is best for us!!

  34. I believe it is a lesson from our God to Repent and sin no more. Look around you, we have become an evil sinful people. America has murdered 60 plus millions of Gods children and we expect no punishment. Our government is full of evil politicians and we keep voting for them. We tolerate homosexuality and act like it’s normal. On and on.

  35. I just read that Harvey Weinstein tested positive for the virus….my Grandmother always said “what goes around comes around” in other words don’t speak bad or do bad to others ….. it will always come back to you!!!

  36. Dolly Parton says? Oh my…it must be true. Dolly Parto knows. I better listen to her. Gimme a break. How stupid. Who cares what she has to say about anything. Dolly Parton says…..blah, blah.

  37. God is in control of this world. He Loves ❤️❤️❤️ Us and has sent His Only Son Jesus to save our souls IF we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord, and Savior Please read : John 3:16-21 (King James Version, and/or New International Version). Jesus is coming back to get those who have accepted Him as their Lord, and Savior, and are living for God very soon. Read 1 Thessalonians 17-18. Why is He coming to take His people from all over the world 🌎🌍🌏 to heaven you may ask???? Because God will not let those who Love ❤️ , and serve Him go through The Great Tribulation The Last Book 📖 in The Bible warns us about. The Book 📖 of Revelation. GID LOVES ❤️❤️❤️ YOU DEAR READER!!! It’s our choice to accept or reject the way of escape. It’s only by accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord, and Savior in which we become children of God. God changed my life, and has provided for my children & I when we were abandoned by their father. I have JOY, AND PEACE IN MY ❤️!!!! Please ask Jesus into your life, you will never be the same!!!!!! Read The Bible daily. Start with the book 📖 of John. Talk to God for that is what prayer is all about!!!! May you choose Jesus & heaven, and avoid hell. Both are real. I’m going to pray 4 you right now. Blessings!!!!🙏🙏🙏❤️❤️❤️📖📖📖🥰🥰🥰

  38. I agree with you Dolly. I pray every day that the virus will be over soon. God hears every prayer and when the time is right He will get rid of the virus. In the Bible God destroyed cities that were evil. Maybe He is sending the world a message that we are too sinful and he is going to destroy us. It’s too bad that it doesn’t just destroy the evil people in our world. But, it doesn’t, it destroys the good people too. But, they will be in a better place, that’s for sure (if they believe in God). God is good and will always be with us.
    God Bless America!

  39. Read revelations. World destroyed by fire. Doesn’t mean fire, fire. First symptom of virus temperature. God works in mysterious ways. Wars and rumors of war. Read. He is pissed.
    Man wed to man. Woman to woman. Garden of eden. Wake up fools.
