CSN Independence Day Edition – LightWing Messages – 7/3/2022
Jesus and a House Divided
Then they brought him a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute, and Jesus healed him, so that he could both talk and see. All the people were astonished and said, “Could this be the Son of David?”
But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “It is only by Beelzebul, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.”
Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. If Satan drives
out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand? And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your people drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. But, if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.
“Or again, how can anyone enter a strong man’s house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can plunder his house.
“Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters. And so I tell you, every kind of sin and slander can be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.” Matthew 12:22-32 (New International Version)
“Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your ancestors worshiped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord. Then the people answered, “Far be it from us to forsake the Lord to serve other gods!” Joshua 24:14-16 (NIV)
Although a majority of Americans will celebrate Independence Day, there are many who likely give little thought to “Independence” or Freedom itself and how it fundamentally relates to them daily. To many, the freedoms enjoyed are taken for granted, and some people live from day to day with little focus upon the future with exceptions including upcoming vacations, or the saving of money for a significant impending expense (that might be a family vacation considering the cost of fuel). Yet, more and more today begin to ponder the future and consider risking more for a better world, and that is what the Declaration of Independence was all about.
LightWing Messages today offers a “double-barreled” blast of two brief articles. One message is from a local Associate pastor in California entitled “Under God,” which is the foundation for a sermon he was going to deliver in his church today. The other message is a brief article from me on those basic principles at the foundation of our Land of the Free.
Patriotic Americans, who love their freedoms, should take some of their precious time on this 2022 Independence Day to consider the deeper connection between the conditions existing at the time of the Founding and the conditions in our present time. Americans need to consider all of the precious freedoms now being attacked in such a time. The repeated abuses of the fundamental principles at the core of the basic foundational documents for the “Land of the Free” are critical. Those freedoms were given to American descendants from God – they were proclaimed in the Declaration written by Thomas Jefferson and approved by the founding generation. They not only need to be re-examined, but re-embraced if we are to stand as One Nation Under God.
We hope our readers would consider the messages in this Sunday edition relevant or meaningful and if readers know others who might value them as well, consider becoming a Light Wing messenger and please pass this newsletter on to those whom you feel could welcome it. Or simply, please receive it yourselves. May God bless all of our readers and all loved ones.

“…one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
These words from our pledge of allegiance are deeply ingrained in our nation’s culture and to a great extent our value system even today. However, the words “under God” weren’t a part of the pledge until 1954. “In God We Trust”, our national motto, wasn’t established until 1957. What brought about these fairly recent developments, and what was the role of God and religion in our Nation’s identity prior to that time?
Within the Church, there is a widening disagreement regarding the Biblical role of Christians and Christianity in the fabric of our culture, and the amount of influence these should have upon public policy. One side decries the evils of “Christian Nationalism,” as patriotic Christians participate in what is viewed to be secular and worldly “politics.” Another side disdains the “wokeness” among churches who promote “equality” and “social justice” ideologies and movements, accusing them of unwittingly… or intentionally… inviting socialism and deconstructionism into our pews.
Within the church, where believers all profess to have a Biblical worldview, there is a great divide regarding the role of the Church in our Nation. We may all be “under God”…but we are hardly “indivisible.”
- Were we ever truly a Christian Nation?
- Can we still claim to be so?
- How does God feel about our Nation? What were his original plans for it? Have they been accomplished? Does He have a future for us?
- Is it right for Christians to be patriotic?
- What is Christian Nationalism? Is it a good thing or a bad thing?
- What role is God calling His people, the Christian Church, to play in our Nation and its future?
- What is God calling you to do?
Pastor George Kistler delivered this special message to prepare the hearts and minds of those in the congregation to celebrate our Nation’s birthday. Pastor Kistler is Associate Pastor and Business Manager at the Home Church in Campbell, Ca.
May we, who are called by His name, approach our Father in Heaven humbly and repent for our complacency and complicity with evil and wrongdoing. May we seek His heart of forgiveness and His mercy upon our nation. May we seek His mind and may we truly turn away from our wicked ways. May we seek to build His Kingdom and His righteousness.
On Independence Day, ‘We the People’ Need to Declare Dependence on God
By Dennis Jamison
As Americans celebrate Independence Day this year, true Americans need to consider much more deeply the fruits of Freedom and how the loss of such freedoms would adversely affect them and their loved ones. The freedoms citizens have enjoyed for over two centuries have in the past 70 years (a lifetime) been taken for granted. American citizens have lived from day to day, expecting that the system of government endowed to us as a free people would not expire.
Nevertheless, citizens stand upon the precipice of losing those freedoms that more serious or sincere men and women were willing to fight to preserve.
For all the people in the United States who see the signs, the proverbial “handwriting on the wall,” it may be hard to digest, but for those without eyes to see, ignorance is bliss. While it may be understandable that most Americans would not think a Marxist revolution could not occur in the United States, we have just experienced a transformation of our nation in which criminals now run the government, and the ‘leader’ and his family have economic ties to enemy nations. Americans now witness a “sanitized,” made-for-television type of Marxist revolution on American soil from the coup against our government made to look like a political rejection of an unpopular president to the political witch hunts of patriots who were standing to speak out against a silent coup that was made to look like a legitimate election.
On this Independence Day, Americans have to seriously wonder whether the days of enjoying our freedoms won at great cost are numbered. The nation has come full circle in the past 100 years as we face today a tyrannical regime intent upon limiting our individual freedoms. Can one honestly admit that the inverted logic of the Left and the globalists contains a shred of common sense? The rewards for anarchy, chaos, and lawlessness stands in glaring opposition to those “crimes” alleged against peaceful protesting patriots who are now in prison. Observing the ‘brain -washing’ of millions within our population is literally mind-blowing. So, if mental manipulation is now the new normal, what is the cure?
From the earliest beginning of human history, when the ancient serpent manipulated the mind of Eve, as well as Adam, what would have been God’s children’s solution to reverse their straying from His guidance? From the time of Hebrew history, when the Israelites deviated from following the Ten Commandments, what was outlined by God for His children to solve their circumstances of tribulation due to their straying from His Words? From the time of Christian history, when the Christains leaders and the ‘faithful’ deviated from following Jesus’ Commandments, what had been proclaimed by Jesus for God’s children to reverse their straying from his admonishments to “go and sin no more” in his day? In this time, as our Christian nation, leaders and the ‘faithful,’ have broken their covenant with God, what had been proclaimed by Jesus for God’s children to reverse their straying from his admonishments to “go and sin no more” in his day?
In this time what has been prescribed by the words within the Old and New Testaments for God’s children to reverse their infatuation with that ancient serpent’s propaganda? A truly consistent prescription can be traced all the way back to Solomon when he erected the temple. 2 Chronicles 7:14 provided a simple process of coming back into God’s Grace. Yet, despite the prescription from thousands of years before, people do not prefer to partake of the medicine of repentance and sinning no more. And now America has become a haven of those who make Sodom and Gomorrah look like only a model for what has developed in America. It would be wise for serious Christians or people of faith to re-read Luke 17 or Matthew 11.
While in the mood for reading, serious American citizens, who want to keep our Constitutional Republic, need to re-read the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights. Nevertheless, secular humanists, God-denying atheists, and many lost souls truly cannot believe in the basic or fundamental premises of the Declaration of Independence, if they do not believe in God. The Declaration is essentially the nation’s covenant with God, as the nation was conceived in Liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all people were created equal under God. So, we are now a divided States of America. Some believe in God and will strive to protect our God-given rights. Others do not believe in God and have accepted that their ‘rights’ come from government and have become dependent upon government.
The United States of America is at a crossroads – facing an existential crisis. No one in the God- denying realms of government, no matter how much they outwardly profess faith, will truly fight to keep the Republic because the fundamental foundation of our Constitutional Republic is the acceptance of citizens’ God-given rights. It is safe to ascertain that there was no expiration date for those God-given, inalienable rights. Inalienable means inseparable from such rights, unless God’s children willingly give them up. Our hold on to the self-evident truths has diminished, but the God-given rights have not expired. Citizens who love Independence, love the freedoms we have neglected to protect, need to form a new covenant with our Father in Heaven. On the day of reflecting upon our Independence, we certainly need to repent, but to also reassert our hold on self-evident truths, and to reaffirm our dependence upon God, and to declare we will not surrender the rights God gave to His children.

The “Message of Light” endeavor had been part of the “David Project” that originated as a genuine inspiration from our Heavenly Father, initiated to bring Light into the dark in this time. The project developed from 2018, and as we approach our fourth anniversary of existence, we this time. The project developed from 2018, and as we approach our third anniversary of existence, we have formally elevated the “David Project” to the more formal “LightWing Mission,” my personal ministry, which I had announced in previous messages.
These messages are freely offered and sent to you as part of the “LightWing Mission.” Please receive today’s messages as a gift from those who care. They are only words being offered, freely; yet, some contain a deep message of faith, or a much deeper expression of heart that readers can hopefully receive into their lives. As it has been written: “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” Proverbs 29:18 – KJV
