CSN Sunday – LightWing Messages for Father’s Day – 6/19/2022
Love the Lord your God and keep His requirements, His decrees, His laws and His commands always. Remember today that your children were not the ones who saw and experienced the discipline of the Lord your God: His majesty, His mighty hand, His outstretched arm; the signs He performed and the things He did in the heart of Egypt, both to Pharaoh king of Egypt and to his whole country; what He did to the Egyptian army, to its horses and chariots, how He overwhelmed them with the waters of the Red Sea as they were pursuing you, and how the Lord brought lasting ruin on them. It was not your children who saw what He did for you in the wilderness until you arrived at this place, and what he did to Dathan and Abiram, sons of Eliab the Reubenite, when the earth opened its mouth right in the middle of all Israel and swallowed them up with their households, their tents and every living thing that belonged to them. But it was your own eyes that saw all these great things the Lord has done.
Observe therefore all the commands I am giving you today, so that you may have the strength to go in and take over the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, and so that you may live long in the land the Lord swore to your ancestors to give to them and their descendants, a land flowing with milk and honey. The land you are entering to take over is not like the land of Egypt, from which you have come, where you planted your seed and irrigated it by foot as in a vegetable garden. But the land you are crossing the Jordan to take possession of is a land of mountains and valleys that drinks rain from heaven. It is a land the Lord your God cares for; the eyes of the Lord your God are continually on it from the beginning of the year to its end.
So if you faithfully obey the commands I am giving you today—to love the Lord your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul— then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and olive oil. I will provide grass in the fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be satisfied.
Be careful, or you will be enticed to turn away and worship other gods and bow down to them. Then the Lord’s anger will burn against you, and He will shut up the heavens so that it will not rain and the ground will yield no produce, and you will soon perish from the good land the Lord is giving you. Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth. Deuteronomy 11:1-21 (New International Version)
In May, we celebrate Mother’s Day, and today we honor the fathers as Americans will remember Father’s Day. It is also a remembrance of Juneteenth, or Freedom Day. This holiday was more of a limited holiday for a number of years in the United States since it originated in the year the American Civil War finally emancipated the slaves of the Confederate states. It must be noted that there is a linkage, often overlooked, possibly considered unusual, to bind the purpose of these two days together. But, I recently made a correlation between Pentecost and the sacrifice of those on D-Day, so please bear with my unique perspective.
In light of the currently contentious and controversial Progressive-revisionist distortions of the true history of the United States, illumination upon the reality that many white fathers and sons gave their lives to secure the emancipation of the slave population in the Confederrate south. It may be due our national collective amnesia, or it may be a deliberate obfuscation of historical truth that it is hard to connect the dots about this. The celebration of Memorial Day was created, originally as Decoration Day, to honor those fathers and sons “who gave their lives that that nation might live…” A nation in which freedom was honored, and extended the ideal that “ALL
men were created equal.” However, ideals are hard to establish in substantial form, as patriots in such a nation have discovered. And, evil habits are hard to break.
How long has humanity been pursuing the ideals that would be the building blocks of a better world? The Holy Bible provides many examples in human history, and if one can be completely honest, the very ideals originated from God – not humanity. In fact, embedded within the Bible are the blueprints for doing things according to God’s ideals. Yet, humanity constantly struggles due to the deviation from or resistance to His ideals. One such ideal would be that a generation would pass on such ideals to the next generation. Common sense – right? But, instead of focus centered upon ideals like the behaviors that would secure freedom or peace, humanity is more inclined to favor enslavement or engagement in warfare. And, in the process everyone suffers.
It is truly tragic that God’s original blueprints did not include slavery or war, yet human history is filled with such fixations. Yet, here are people of faith, who do understand God’s original ideals and blueprints did include establishing a love relationship between Him and His children and an appeal to love His children. The basic institution to implement that was not the church or some form of government. The foundational institution to implement such ideals was the family. As I mentioned on Mother’s Day, the family is at the core of the society. The family was intended to be the “nest” where the children learn to become respectful, trusting, and loving human beings.
Today’s message of light is provided by a Jewish father, whom I believe truly acknowledges this.
The message is from Dr. Richard Moss, who has written for the Citizen Sentinels Network for quite some time on quite a number of topics. The message featured today was written earlier in the year. It is from a father who loves his family – a father who is also concerned about a bigger family consisting of this nation. He shares in a vulnerable way, his love, the gamut of emotions
involved in being a dad. He also reveals his concerns for the well-being of the nation.
As a medical doctor he is aware of the enemies of life, the enemies of liberty, and the enemies of the enjoyment of the fruits of freedom want to tear down the core of our beloved society. Today we honor all fathers, not just in this nation, but in all nations. HAPPY FATHER’S DAY to all the Dads out there!!!

A Parent’s Quandary
It was a routine and predictable enough event in the life of a parent, one that should not have been too taxing to one’s equilibrium or balance of emotions, and yet there it was: for the past week, I had been nothing if not disconsolate, distraught with anticipation of the day, dreading its arrival, wracked by sorrow and foreboding, fending off devastating mood swings, shaken by melancholy and mourning, adrift, lost in timeless reveries, with not infrequent episodes of lamentation and weeping…
She was, after all, my firstborn, and as the first child, she was privileged. She received all the slavish affections of a delirious father, who was instantly smitten by the fragile, squirming, little creature. At her birth, and thereafter, a whole new range of emotions and sensations now consumed me: drooling euphoria; unhinged rapture; besotted reverence; incoherent adulation. Pristine heights of hysterical ecstasy, the likes of which Tim Leary, the poets, Sufis, and mystics, could only dream of, were now arrayed within me like glorious, sparkling ornaments; truly, I was reborn, in the glow of my incandescent, newly-born daughter…
I devoted long stretches to expounding on the joys of fatherhood and chronicling her infancy: making up songs, composing tributes, recording by film, video, and pen her every moment, milestone, and adorable utterance: her first words, her first teeth, her first steps: not one jot in the long itinerary of stumbles undertaken in the early years was left to dusty memory; rather it was painstakingly and dutifully immortalized in some fashion, so beguiled and incapacitated was I by her every exploit and achievement at the dawning of her young life…
I rushed each morning to her cradle, always insistent I see her first, so I could witness in its purest state the inevitable warmth of her smile and expression, a wondrous balm before the work-a-day world began. And yes, there were the feedings and diaper changes and other more tedious repetitions, all now mysteriously imbued with a sense of elevated purpose and sanctity, perceived as necessary but nonetheless holy tasks; indeed, I was aghast and rueful that I had loutishly failed to grasp previously the singular beauty and sublimity attached to the proper care and treatment of intestinal gas or diaper rash, and bore shame for my knavish shortcomings…
I had tracked and promoted her career through childhood and adolescence. We slogged through the hooked-on-phonics and Suzuki music lessons. I helped her with the spelling Bs, dioramas, book reports, and science projects. She joined the Marching Band, and I followed her to the recitals and competitions throughout the state, cheering and applauding her every effort…
It was around the time of her eighteenth birthday, upon becoming a senior at the High School, that I began to experience the portentous disquiet of which I spoke earlier. I realized that each event through the school year would not be revisited, that she would not return to lead the band or perform at football games or with the orchestra or symphony; and so each such closing activity was endowed with poignancy, finality, and newfound urgency.
Moreover, I could glimpse the schism that was fast approaching in the boisterous and happy family unit I had carefully assembled and tended through the years with house, kids, and pet canary; the altering of essential relationships that had formed between parents and children and between the children themselves. I understood it as the opening salvo in the gradual unraveling of my little parcel of domesticity, which, for nearly two decades, had been a constant and stable marker… Now, I was witnessing the process in reverse, the fracturing of that which I had methodically built, as my first fledgling prepared to decamp – to be followed, in good time, by the others…
In the days leading up to her departure for college, I feverishly sought consolation from those who had already gone through it. I spoke of my growing gloom with each passing day. I was told to be happy for her, that it was her turn, and that I could take pleasure in having raised a good kid. Yet such sentiments failed to dispel my woe.
I took the day off to drive her to the college dorm. Before leaving, I told her how proud she had made me. I recited a prayer and blessed her. When we arrived, I helped her to unload her luggage and bade her farewell.
A parent must ultimately do this; that is, to say, let go. Parenting is, after all, preparing our children for their own lives. They do not belong to us. We merely have the burden – and pleasure – of raising them.
We who uphold our sacred traditions and obligations must commit to, abide by, and defend this most critical bond. We who have witnessed the degradation of our culture, the tearing down of the load-bearing walls of our civilization, first and foremost, the intact, married, nuclear family, can do no better than to pledge ourselves to our children and families as a bulwark against the moral anarchy surrounding us.
It has always been the focus of the Marxist Left, those who occupy the commanding heights of our institutions, to attack those pesky families and their annoying habits and conventions. In so doing, they challenge human nature itself. First and foremost, they have sought to undermine the nuclear family, to destroy the institution of marriage, to render it merely one of any number of lifestyle options and preferences, rather than to elevate and privilege it as our most critical institution.
They have assaulted the bond between parents and children and sought to replace it with the state. Through our schools and colleges, and government programs that encourage dependency and dysfunctional behavior, they have injected their anti-family ideology into the bloodstream of the country, thus weakening the sinews of our moral system and the nuclear family itself. They targeted the church and religion, as well, directing their contempt first and foremost at Christianity, which they loath. They, our superiors, know better, upholders, as they imagine themselves, of reason and science, direct descendants of the Enlightenment.
Marxists hold that your children do not belong to you, rather, they belong to the state. They seek control early on, in gestation, in pre-K, elementary school, and beyond, their grip on our children ever tighter and manipulative, culminating in an all-consuming dominance through our higher institutions.
Only one force can withstand the Leftist onslaught: the autonomous, married nuclear family and the parent-child bond. We must guard our children and instill in them the values of our civilization and faith.
We must shield them from the corruption of the regime, and the radical Leftist vanguard that commands our schools and universities. Through the parent-child bond, the church and temple, our local schools, communities, and the civil society beyond, we can preserve the West, shield our children from the venality and moral chaos surrounding us, and uphold the pillars of the American Republic.

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 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
May we, who are called by His name, approach our Father in Heaven in humility and seek not only His face, but His heart and His mind as well; may we confront our misgivings as well as our shortcomings and repent, and may we all turn away from our wicked ways. May we seek His Kingdom we were told to seek and His righteousness. May we take the ideals of manifesting love in our families more vibrantly and vitally than ever before.
