CSN Sunday – Messages of Light – 1/10/2021
Dear CSN newsletter readers,
The Citizen Sentinels Network has maintained a project, originally deemed the David Project, since 2018. This is our second birthday in a hostile political environment! Especially, for those readers of faith, the Messages of Light originated as a genuine inspiration from our Heavenly Father. It was initiated to bring Light into the dark in this time. And especially at this time in our nation and in the world, there is clear and present danger that requires the faithful to hold boldly and securely onto the foundations that are rooted in faith.
If you consider the messages in our Sunday edition relevant or meaningful and know others who might value them as well, consider yourself a Light mail messenger and please pass this newsletter on to those whom you feel could welcome it. Or, simply please receive it yourselves.
“When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!” His disciples remembered that it is written: “Zeal for your house will consume me.” [Psalm 69:9]
The Jews then responded to him, “What sign can you show us to prove your authority to do all this?”
Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.”
They replied, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?” But the temple he had spoken of was his body. After he was raised from the dead, his disciples recalled what he had said. Then they believed the scripture and the words that Jesus had spoken.
Now while he was in Jerusalem at the Passover Festival, many people saw the signs he was performing and believed in his name. But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all people. He did not need any testimony about mankind, for he knew what was in each person.” John 2:13-25
Perhaps one of the most revealing events in the Gospels that shows Jesus’ love for his Father in Heaven occurs when he forms a whip out of cords and aggressively chases the materialist oriented money changers from His Father’s house. Contemporary Christians practically ignore this passage in John as it appears contrary to the image of the loving Jesus that has been held by Christians for quite a long period. But, in light of the past years in the United States, it is not likely that many Christian ministers would have made this passage a core of any sermons. Yet, here is Jesus in the Temple being quite belligerent — Over what? — Over the desecration of his Father’s house.
How many Christian ministers in recent years have minimized their sermon topics to safe words of truth, while avoiding a more complete picture of Jesus? How many Christian ministers in the recent years have allowed their houses of worship to be focused upon the “Prosperity Gospel” that has made many quite wealthy? How many Christian ministers in recent years have allowed their houses of worship to be tainted by idolatry, overtaken by messages of compromise with the worldly pleasures? Where has this led the people who were genuinely seeking guidance to our Heavenly Father? Has any reader grasped the deeper meaning of the part of the passage that “Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all people,” or have many leaders of the faith explained it clearly? It meant Jesus refused to entrust himself to certain people.
Jesus also told his disciples: “If anyone does not welcome you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave that town, as a testimony against them.” It is clear that these are hard sayings and not completely aligned with several contemporary messages or “narratives” from ministers who have drifted from the complete original message from Jesus himself. As I have mentioned in previous messages, Jesus came preaching to repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand. Then, the Church developed the system of church government centered upon the papacy. Yet, that did not align well with Jesus’ message of the Kingdom based upon various “Councils” under Roman government authority. This history of the Church proved to be corrupt. The Reformation came about because of this deviation. But, the question remains of the nation created upon the foundation of the Judeo-Christian heritage.
Are Christian ministers truly in alignment with the original Kingdom message of God’s son? Has the United States of America led to coming closer to God’s Kingdom, or has it currently drifted so much farther away than good people can imagine? If we keep on the present course of U.S. national trajectory will it help us to get closer to “One Nation Under God,” or farther away? These are indeed the times that try good people’s souls — especially in the aftermath of the events last Wednesday.
Please understand that Heavenly Father is not “imprisoned” in the BIble. He abounds in all places – in an unrestricted manner, and as He was with the Pilgrims as they crossed the stormy Atlantic, He is here with us. He was with the Founders as they fashioned a whip of truth and chased the tyrants from this land. He worked to help Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. during the Civil Rights Movement. God is not a passive God, yet He is a God of Wisdom. Heavenly Father is watching over His children in this crucial time. As the stories in the Old Testament told of the rise and fall of kingdoms and nations, so it is in this time.
Heavenly Father is definitely pro-active and has an entrenched investment in the Land of the Free. In this time, the Judeo – Christian heritage is our foundation — hold on to it! Jesus’ words are truth; he told Pontius Pilate that he came to bear witness to the truth’ he said to know the truth, for the truth will set one free. And, indeed it shall.
In this time, the sacred truths mentioned in the Declaration of Independence is our foundation — hold on to it! God intended us to be a free people – we need to hold onto the Constitution. We are needed to keep the Republic! Does our love for God’s nation burn in us like a fire? As we see the mockery and injustice and corruption in our midst, what are we prepared to do? It is our turn to “hold these truths and to keep the Republic!”
Our messages today come from two men I respect in a genuine and sincere way. They are sharing their witness to you of the truth that they live and understand in their lives. Please give them an opportunity to share with you their words for a difficult time. Both messages were written in December of this year, before Christmas. Yet, they are both quite appropriate for one’s better understanding of the times we are living in. Readers are free to take the messages with a grain of salt,” or allow the messages to sink into their minds and hearts.
Our first full message today is a new year’s message from Kevin Anderson, who has written for the Citizen Sentinels Network before. He is a caretaker of God’s Country Church. His article is one which comes from his heart. It provides a righteous perspective that helps in understanding some of what is happening in the current of corruption within the United States.
The second full message for today is from Apostle Tim Taylor, the founder of Kingdom League International. It is a substantial excerpt from a longer provocative blog post, and a link to the original article and the KLI site can be found afterwards.
Today we also have three articles in our “Recommended Reading” section. We are offering these to alert the people of faith about the government activities that are affecting our lives and the free exercise of one’s religious belief. Socialist-oriented governments will gravitate toward control of the people of faith and how they choose to worship God and practice their beliefs.
We also have seven videos for today. The first one is from Dutch Sheets on the things happening in D.C. as he is there on a ‘special assignment.’ Also, there is a prophetic message from Pastor Hank Kunneman from this morning. The other videos are musical and are all special. Most we have featured before, but we hope that you can enjoy them all!
Please remember that in this New Year, we are switching the order of our “Recommended Reading” section and our Video Views sections to align more with an order in our regular CSN newsletter.
These words and images are being freely offered and are being sent to you as part of the David Project’s “Messages of Light.” Please receive today’s messages as a gift from those who care. They are only words that are being offered, freely, but some contain a deep message of faith, or a deeper expression of heart that readers can hopefully receive into their lives. As it was written: “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” Proverbs 29:18 – KJV
May we know and put into practice the greatest commandments: “The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Mark 12:29-31 Stand up for One Nation Under God where this could be made manifest! Let’s keep the Republic!

Many identify as a fill-in-the–blank (FITB)American to make some sort of claim they are deserving of privilege. But, there is no such thing as special Americans. Being American means you gave up all the other to be an American. The same thing is true in being a Christian.
Admittedly, there are many fill-in-the-blank Christians as well. These people have not given up some things to be Christian – they hang on to something added to the idea of being pure, holy and united with Christ. Holy and righteousness is exempt from the vocabulary lacking knowledge and understanding. Hosea 4:6 is often quoted but not in whole. Lacking knowledge because of refusing knowledge is the problem. After reading that verse, ask again why we have problems with our children.
You don’t have to be Christian to be American, and certainly, you shouldn’t think because you’re American you are Christian. We are not filling in the blank foolishly calling ourselves Christian-American. Being American means you have established yourself unto the nation that is established by history and principles of a common-purposed people under law – God’s Law – despite ancestry of many kinds.
When we criticize FITB Americans, they are instantly defensive and accusing. But, why? They have demanded some additional privileges. They are filled with pride and jealousy because they will not repent. Often, they are demanding privileges no one else has, and that is why they add something by hyphenating their identity label.
The politicians gloat at the opportunity to gain votes, the virtue-signaling public gains pride in doing good for the oppressed and the religious find a mission field when they see the hyphenated persons crying. Most of these groups think they are doing good, but in reality they are ignoring what is right and not seeing the unintended consequences.
With whatever ethnic or special-interest group FITB Americans label themselves, they are really saying they are not American. They want what Americans have, but not wanting to be an American – denying all that goes with it. They lack understanding and are in fear of their own selves. The fear comes from guilt when facing the truth – the lack of knowledge comes from refusing to learn truth.
The truth of being an American is as our mottoes indicate, that we are one people under one God. E pluribus unum or “Out of Many, One” and “In God We Trust” clearly state we are not special interest peoples under many gods. Americans are not a people under exceptions and circumstances. Lawyers made God seem to be a liar as they argue the right to murder the innocent and steal from the people their income and property.
Churches, schools and businesses are at fault, but even more, families have abdicated their responsibilities to others, giving authority over their households to the world instead of being the standard God gave. Family is the pillar on which God built societies, even nations. The rights of family authority was given to the head of the family with Godly instructions to preserve by the children’s righteousness and lawful prosperity. Patriarchy is a Godly principle.
Fathers have submitted to the world order forsaking God’s truth. When did this happen? Blame is an excuse not a reason. How many are exempt from the cause? Now we struggle and fight the serpent to reclaim what we have given to the wrong authorities.
What is right and what is wrong matters, and this is based on the present not something out of the past. All peoples have histories that have wrongs as far back as the flood. If we tear down strongholds, let it be those at the gate where good and evil collide. We do not answer to man but to God.
Deception reins in the hearts and minds of the nations, but the land belongs to the Creator and He provides it to those to whom He will give it. Some believe this and some that don’t struggle for what isn’t theirs, but the reality is there is only one Creator, and His Spirit remains with His chosen.
Why do the rioters destroy one memorial and call another sacred? The idea is to steal what is God’s and build idols to heathen gods that do not submit to the true God – such as it has been for a long season.
In 1620, just off the shores of Massachusetts a proclamation was made revealing the purpose of this land we now call the United States of America. Would a real Christian question this miracle? [Job 8:7 – Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.]
Many don’t even know the true story. Was the suffering and blood in vain? The tribal people they met had no knowledge of the Creator of the universe and the redeeming Son sent to all mankind – save one. A man named Squanto knew. He was the only one remaining of his tribe and had been converted despite and through various trials. He helped the new settlers survive for God’s purpose.
History does matter while we watch memorials be torn down that mark significant steps concerning the advancement of the Christian faith. Even FITB Christian Americans say to respect the heathen landmarks that have unknown history – defending something that may be lead to their own demise. Foolish people will destroy their own land:
Deut. 32:6 – Do ye thus requite the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? is not he thy father that hath bought thee? hath he not made thee, and established thee?
Deut. 32:21 – They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.
A true American is Christian like unto those who agreed to the purpose of the land given for the hope of their children and Christian liberty.
James Nesbit Art
I host a prophet’s council for Washington State. During our last meeting, this theme emerged starting with some lyrics from a Paul Wilbur song which says, “there is a war and a wedding feast.” Elizabeth Sorenson, the prayer leader for the Washington State Prayer Caucus shared how the Lord had been highlighting a war between two churches.
What is the war over? It is over truth. We find the war described in Revelation 12 that spilled from heaven to earth and that Satan, the accuser of the brethren went to make war with God’s people. How did they overcome? They overcame by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony. Satan is the father of lies (John 8:44) while Jesus is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6).
The war is over freedom. Jesus said in John 8:32, “And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” It reminded me of what God showed me in February of 2020. God revealed to me that “We’ve Entered the Valley of Decision” and there was a war between the “doctrines of demons” and “the truth of God’s word.”
This is a Spiritual War Manifesting in the Political Sphere
We are in a fight now over a presidential election. It involves two parties: Democrats and Republicans. But this is far more than a war between two parties. There is a worldwide agenda unfolding here, a spiritual war, with numerous nations, bad actors in media, education, business, healthcare and government plotting intrigue with deception in order to steal an election. It is a war over God’s agenda verses Satan’s plans. The evil has caused a shaking even as it seeks to undermine the foundation of this nation but their plot is failing and instead producing a “Great Awakening.” There is a Remnant Rising. Why God even marked this with a sign in July. Click The Sign of a Church Arising Over the Mountains.
I marvel because this war over the truth verses lying, fraud, deception and theft is separating the Church into two camps. This low point in American political history serves like a valley of decision and God is watching and recording our responses. Do you know what question resonates in my mind? What will heaven record about my stand during this time? Will heaven find me standing with God and the truth or with the Devil and the lie?
Jesus Told Us This Day Would Come
In Matthew 24 and Luke 17 Jesus tells us how there would be two in the field: one will be taken and the other one left. In Matthew 25 Jesus describes how He will send His angels to gather all peoples and then He will sit upon His throne separating the nations, the people groups, between the sheep and the goats. The sheep get to join Jesus in His kingdom while to the goats He says in Matthew 25:41 41, “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:”
There are two kinds of people and two kinds of nations. Should we be surprised if there are two kinds of churches?
The Great Harlot verses the Bride in Revelation
All through scripture you’ll find Satan and his minions seek to copy or mimic God. But he is not God. He cannot create. He can only counterfeit by trying to copy the true. Since God has been preparing a bride for His Son, Satan has prepared a counterfeit.
In Revelation 17:5 we find Satan’s counterfeit described as “Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and of the Abominations of the Earth.” Harlots sell their bodies to others. It’s kind of like the Pharisees in Jesus’ day who sold themselves to Herod and His temple. They colluded with government for they feared losing power, control, and wealth. This is why Jesus said beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Herod. He was warning us about the collusion between a religious spirit and a political spirit. It is obvious those same demonic spirits are still at work today.
Abominations are actions which the Bible describes in places like Leviticus 18. These are actions which enact a spiritual law which cause a land to vomit the inhabitants out. We find a modern scenario of this evil collusion between the religious spirit and the political spirit manifested through how “the Church” or certain members of “the clergy” choose to align themselves with government policies that advocated things like abortion or the undermining of marriage as God defines it.
There are certain ministers and even denominations that bless abortion clinics, blaspheme God saying these clinics do God’s work, or they compromise God’s definition of marriage as they approve of lies that suggest there are more genders other than male and female. This 2019 article said there are 64. They’ve been blinded by their lust for power, money, influence or fame which is often afforded by a political party who seeks the same.
This Church which aligns itself with and propagates these kinds of lies. It should be no surprise that we’ll find witches covens and Satanists groups aligning with these positions on the Democrat Left (this reference refers to the Democrat Party Platform and includes Republican’s who are Republican’s in name only – RINO’s) and voting for candidates and policies that are literally inspired by doctrines of demons. The policies and laws which encourage people to sin or practice acts which are called abominations are the real problems. This hastens judgment. These are the practice and actions of the harlot Church.
The fact that there is a counterfeit is proof there is the true. My friends, this valley of decision we’ve come to has presented a scenario which unites “the Church.” I am referring to the remnant Church, the real Church that God is preparing as a bride for His Son. This valley of decision is a fire that purifies and simplifies. We find fire and the pressure causes what you really believe to surface. We find people from within each of the Charismatic movement to the Catholic Church and from the Pentecostals to Presbyterian churches and denominations being separated into two camps over these moral issues. You can see God’s people in every stream and denomination emerging and separating themselves from the apostate Church. They are are in a purification process in preparation for the choosing by the King. It reminds me of the process Esther went through.
I know there are lots of denominations, streams, and movements, but this situation is simplifying it all. You either believe in and advocate for the truth or you do not. Know that you really cannot sit on the fence either (see We Find 3 Kinds of People in Spiritual War Today). Silence in a day like today might as well be a vote for the enemy of all righteousness. Trying to straddle the fence is not an option.
So, what will heaven record? I want heaven to record that I stood with our Lord Jesus Christ and the truth. I want it to record that I feared and respected God more than I feared man. What do you want heaven to record about your response in this day?
