CSN Sunday – Messages of Light – 11/8/2020
Dear CSN newsletter readers,
The Citizen Sentinels Network has maintained a project, originally deemed the David Project, since 2018. Especially, for those readers of faith, the Messages of Light originated as a genuine inspiration from Heavenly Father. It was initiated to bring Light into the dark in this time. At this time 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, please pass this who might value them as well, consider yourself a Light mail messenger, please pass this message on to those whom you feel could receive it. Otherwise, please receive it yourselves.
Good Day! If you consider yourself a Light mail messenger, please pass this message on to those whom you feel could receive it…
Otherwise, please receive it into your own heart and mind.
“The Lord said, “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering. So, I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land into a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey—the home of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. And now the cry of the Israelites has reached me, and I have seen the way the Egyptians are oppressing them. So now, go. I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt.”
But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?”And God said, “I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain.” Exodus 3:7-12
This past week, American citizens who are paying attention to the travesty of injustice in what had been billed as a legal national election, have been appalled by the massive and widespread fraud that has replaced a free and fair election. The controversy has
Been smothered by a loose, yet obvious network of mainstream media outlets. Their role in such activity was to resolve the illegal aspects of the election by ignoring any reference to them and to quickly manifest “resolution” by deception, deceit, and total dishonesty. Our political system at this point is not reflective of a just system grounded in law. It is more a true reflection of corruption at the highest levels of our government, by leaders from both political parties, and with compliance from the mainstream and social media outlets. It is wrong on so many levels, and represents America at a crossroads – or in my recent analogy — the people of faith in America are looking into the vast hopelessness of the Red Sea, and weighing that with the representatives of Pharaoh who are coming to reclaim the slaves who dared to be free, or to annihilate them.
Such is the spiritual, or symbolic, showdown of personal and communal faith in the United States of America today. Certainly, for those who know the story of Exodus in the Bible, the image of the trial of faith at the Red Sea, is an incredibly dramatic moment in the history of God’s people. But, is it no less dramatic in this time, when people of faith are facing the appearance of hopelessness in an unknown future of despair on the one hand, and the representatives of government control already proclaiming their victory over We the People. Truly, in this scenario, citizens are facing one of the greatest tests of their faith they may have to deal with in their entire lives.
This is not a situation in which being a church-goer will give such folks a “free pass” from this crossroads of faith. What it truly involves is where people are placing their honest to goodness faith. The choice is overtly obvious, yet for some, it may not be completely clear. People who claim to have faith in God, need to choose whether they honestly believe that God can work His Providence through whom anyone He wishes, at any moment He wants, at any time in history. Or, they can choose rto place their faith in the current politicians of the ruling class (the representatives of Pharaoh and Caesar) as well their spokespersons in the MSM, or social media, or entertainment media. With such a formidable choice, and it is not me being overdramatic) people of faith may want to seriously consult Heavenly Father in this time, they may want to seek His face, to come humbly before Him in prayer, on a deeper level than ever before, and to look in the mirror to see what they have become.
My honest sentiments about the Christian leaders who assume the “holier than thou” attitude when it comes to dealing with the secular world has been expressed, but even worse, there are Christian leaders who are complicit in this fraud as they were not truly honest with those in their church communities. There were those who led people away from honestly standing for the biblical traditions that lie at the foundation of this nation. Truth may not be something which a majority of Americans care about anymore if their consciences have twisted inward upon themselves. Yet, the division in the Christian “community” is glaring in the face of American citizens who were in need of greater spiritual guidance in dealing with the concept of Trump vs. No Trump. For those with little faith, there is often a feeble conscience at the heart of their souls that is unable to discern clearly between right and wrong. Christians and other people of faith used to be able to provide a more moral compass for the rest of the people. But, that seems to be no longer true. Yet, our challenge as people of faith is very real: do we listen to the representatives of the secular world as they portray their “assessment” of our election, or do we seek wisdom from higher authority?
It is certainly a time in which all people of faith need to seek God’s wisdom and His Will, and to search deeply within their own consciences to latch hold of what they most truly believe in and hold on tight to those deeper values, and to act upon the deeper wisdom
that God put within all of us – the difference between right and wrong — between good and evil. In light of this, we hope to provide information from other citizens who share their voices in relation to our common quest to live by our faith and God’s commands.
Who are we that we should challenge the secular tyranny being forced upon us? We are His children, and we need to honor His hand in the Land of the Free, to become a foundation for the entire world to be free!
We offer articles today from two faith-filled ladies who express, in their own ways, perspectives on the current political climate in America. The first article is from Jan Potter who offered a contribution to the MyFaithVotes website that was written in mid- October – before Election Day. Her perspective provides an open-ended question that she attempts to answer by using our unique American history as a basis for a broader understanding of the value of Christians getting involved in the political arena. It is not yet clear how many Christians voted in this election, but the “house divided” may have allowed for this nation to be weakened, even shaken to its very foundations.
The second article is from A. Dru Kristenev, whom we featured last week in an article she had written in October about discerning between the two political parties. If you missed it, it is a very biblically astute perception, and we offer a link to that article below. Today, however, we offer an article from her that focuses upon the after-election realities that have been currently unfolding. There is much drama, and Kristenev, is offering her perspective from her viewpoint as a minister of God from her “Changing Wind” ministry.
We also offer four additional videos today. One is a version of “God Bless the USA” with Lee Greenwood and “friends” from July of this year.
The second video is an after election sermon from Pastor Jack Hibbs entitled “God’s in charge!” It was sent in by Kay Burrows, and it is powerful.
The third video is a Sid Roth interview with Tracy Cooke and Kevin Zadai as they also post election perceptions from their prophetic perspectives.
The fourth video features “The Battle Hymn Of The Republic” that was presented during Donald J. Trump’s Pre-Inauguration on January 19, 2017. Enjoy them all…
These words are being freely offered and are being sent to you as part of the “David Project.” Please receive this message 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 hearts. 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 humble ourselves, seek His face, seek His wisdom, seek His forgiveness and His transformative love, and turn from our wicked ways – even if it may mean one’s failure to hold securely to Heavenly Father’s everlasting truth, and to put that truth to practice – in our everyday lives. Determining to do good is a nice idea, but doing His Will is what Jesus challenged us to do everyday of our lives!
Should Christians Be Involved In Politics?
By Jan K. Potter
I recently read an illustrated patriotic book to my granddaughter. As I read about the hardships, sacrifices, and God’s interventions that gave us America, my little Kenzie asked, “Why are you crying, Grama?”
Kenzie and I pictured the Mayflower tossing about on the rough Atlantic Ocean, taking the Pilgrims on a voyage to escape tyranny and find a new land where they could be free to live and worship God as they chose. We felt their chill as they endured the cold, cruel winter where only half would survive.
I didn’t know some of the stories from those early years of our nation’s freedom, like the determination for the colonies to be unified in their decision to seek independence from Britain. We read about the sacrifice of Caesar Rodney, a delegate from Delaware who rode his horse 80 miles through a nighttime storm to cast the final vote needed to precede.
We cringed as the battle raged at Fort McHenry, with the British unleashing bombs and rockets from their ships. I felt some of the pride and joy that Frances Scott Key must have felt after finding the flag still waving when the battle was over, and I found myself singing aloud our National Anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner.
We are not a perfect nation and we never have been. But we have a form of government, granted to us by faithful men who pursued freedom and leadership by and for the people, not controlled and manipulated by those in power.
We are in danger of losing the freedoms we have learned to cherish: freedom of religion, speech, the press, freedom to choose our children’s education, the right to bear arms, the right to be safe and protected. Our freedoms are often dictated by our leadership, and of course, we determine our leadership by educating ourselves on the issues and voting.
An estimated twenty-five million Christians did not vote in the 2016 election. Why?
People give various reasons for not getting involved in politics: It’s too corrupt, politicians are all liars, it’s too confusing, my vote wouldn’t matter anyway. But one reason believers seem to use most is that this world is not our home, and our responsibility is to bring people to Jesus, not get distracted by the affairs of government or take sides. After all, our citizenship is in heaven. (Philippians 3:20) Plus, doesn’t the Constitution say religion and politics don’t mix?
In his book One Vote, Dr. Ben Carson said, “Separation of church and state does not mean that you must remove your faith from your public life and your voting decisions. Freedom of religion means you are free to speak about and live according to your faith without threats from the government.” (One Vote, by Ben Carson, MD, Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. Carol Stream, Illinois, 2014, pages 57-58.)
Why wouldn’t believers in Christ get involved when the decisions made in government affect every one of us—our lifestyles, our freedoms, our ability to worship as we please?
Some say, “I don’t like either candidate. Who would I vote for?”
There’s no need for character assassination—just see what the candidates stand for. To know what the political leadership will do in the future, look at the policies and legislation they have passed, tried to pass, or plan to pass. How people vote should depend on what they believe about the important issues that make the most difference.
Among the most valued freedoms for Americans is the freedom of religion.
Our Constitution states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
Thomas Jefferson declared that ‘No provision in our Constitution ought to be dearer to man than that which protects the rights of conscience against the enterprises of the civil authority.’ Ongoing attempts to compel individuals, businesses, and institutions of faith to transgress their beliefs are part of a misguided effort to undermine religion and drive it from the public square.”
State and local races are also extremely important and will make big a difference in our government’s leadership. Ongoing disputes about churches being forced to close due to the coronavirus have included California Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom banning church services and even in-home Bible studies while allowing the gathering of thousands of protesters night after night. Currently, the battles for religious freedom are still in court, while fines for one church have reached nearly $60,000. Both of these rights are equal but treated differently.
The Sanctity of Life should also be at the forefront of Christian minds. God creates life in the mother’s womb and each life deserves protection. As believers, we should ask ourselves which candidates believe every life has value? Who will protect the unborn and the elderly? Who is for post-birth abortion, killing a child after she is born? Where a candidate stands on the issue of life reveals a candidate’s entire worldview. Do they believe we are created by God almighty, made in His image, or are we nothing more than a clump of cells? The sanctity of life matters.
This election should be about policy, not personalities. It’s about which candidates will protect religious liberty and life in the womb. Throughout scripture, God uses sinful people for His kingdom. People like David (adulterer and murderer), Rahab (harlot), Samson (worldly and sensual), Jonah (disobedient to God), Paul (ordered Christians killed until Jesus appeared to him on the road to Damascus).
The fact that God uses imperfect people should give us all hope that He can use any one of us, in spite of our past and our failures, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). It requires repentance, faith, and trust in the Living God.
Yes, we would all love to have a totally kind, loving, wise, respectable, flawless leader for our nation and world, but Jesus has not returned to earth—yet!
Could it be that things have digressed over the years since the founding of our nation because godly men and women abdicated their responsibilities and feared standing up for truth? That too many of us have pursued our own desires and failed to repent of our sins, honor the Great Commission to bring people to Jesus, disciple them, and teach them our godly heritage? (2 Chronicles 7:13-14, 19-20; Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 26:18; Psalm 33:12a).Our one vote could make all the difference like Caesar Rodney’s one vote made for the founders of our nation. Pray, share the love of Jesus, and vote!
Ignoring history, are we witnessing a nation’s overthrow… again? By A. Dru Kristenev 11/06/20
Influencers embedded in the social order are complicit in the fraud being perpetrated before our eyes.
We’ve been well-informed about the observable infiltration and conversion of media, every aspect of it, and education from preschool through college. What hasn’t been recognized is the steady subversion of the ministry, how it has avoided confrontation for fear of persecution and, in so doing, allowed its voice to be muted and nullified, silencing God’s voice in the culture.
This isn’t a new revelation but the active and passive alliance of these three forces driving social (mis)conduct invited the overt election criminality.
Every arm of “official” media purposely misled the public by omitting information from their reports and falsely claiming democrat victory in races that are still fluid. They refused to question the legality of states suspending vote counting. Partners in the crime to pad the democrat ticket numbers with fake ballots, media is disseminating lies.
Social media – Facebook, Twitter, et al – are aggressively censoring verified information being reported by researchers and credible personalities such as the President of the United States. Their agenda is to control a narrative. The rationale is hard to discern considering that discouraging free enterprise champions spikes their format to increase profitability. If money is power, then why would social media mavens want to make capitalists outcasts in order to cater to socialist parasites? Such logic doesn’t compute with this author.
Obviously, the trend to destroy free speech and free enterprise as exercised by media and the political class is about one thing – control, which means a major goal is to make ministry capitulate to embrace popular culture. A bold Christian message is the one enemy that must be subdued and the only way that is being accomplished is to make the Church believe it is subject to government backlash. That’s why the longterm propaganda campaign has pressed religious leaders to voluntarily give up their constitutional independence and sign-up as 501(c)(3) non-profits. Churches are not non-profit corporations, they are centers for worship, charity and, teaching the Word of God that directs government, not the other way around.
Unfolding in the closed-off counting rooms run by partisan hacks who think they are above the law – perhaps for good reason since the judicial system has balked at prosecuting proven crimes – is the continuing discovery of votes for the loser, Joe Biden. Desperate democrats and the media are conjoined twins in the criminal enterprise to subvert a critical election in the life (or what may be the death) of what was the freest nation on earth.
This is racketeering of the most egregious nature and cannot go unchallenged. The widespread cabal is hiding its war rooms of operatives filling in “found” ballots with only one vote for the democrat candidate that are then mixed in with the legitimate ballots in the dead of night. All to make it nearly impossible to winnow out the fake votes and scuttle the ability for courts to clear out the chaff for declaring a clean winner.
Votes have been switched from Trump to Biden back to Trump once a glitch was found in the voting software used in 47 counties in Michigan and numerous other localities across the United States. Whistleblowers from post offices in Michigan and Pennsylvania, two important swing states, have owned up to the deception of supervisors directing employees to back-date late mail-in ballots for the November 3rd election date. One lawbreaker had the gall to tweet a video of himself filling out multiple ballots for Joe Biden all at one time.
Because the Constitution of the United States, the actual “Law of the Land,” has been trampled by lawless democrats egged on by the unethical media, options for a just resolution may be dwindling to what has been done on local levels in the past… a do-over.
Fraud in this election is prevalent with mounting evidence in nearly every democrat stronghold that is still locating new unvalidated ballots, pouring them into the overall tally until they amount to hundreds of thousands of votes above the number of registered voters. This alone is enough proof to throw out any returns calculated after the illegal shutdown of counting centers in at least four states.
Should a new election be held, and there are millions who are now considering this to be a viable option, the following regulations must be enforced:
No mail-in ballots except for properly requested absentee ballots requiring verification
States that now have only mail-in voting must re-open polling centers for this special election, rejecting all other mail-in ballots except absentee as noted above
No early or late voting allowed
Voter Identification required
Unless the judiciary is as debased as the other criminal elements that have corrupted the voting process, and it’s possible, this may be the best alternative to deal with the steady deterioration of elections.
Thus far, we have carelessly followed in the footsteps of failed nations – Athens, Rome, Germany and numerous others that could be mentioned. They gave up their freedom to raise up idols that are grounded in self-indulgence that ranges from personal gratification of material and sexual desires, to avoiding contention by ignoring the collapsing culture around them.
Instead of aping the downfall of these nations, America is situated to avoid dissolution, having a president that is poised to emulate Hezekiah who upended the pagan altars and
re-instituted the laws of God, leading Judah to a revival of faith and resurgence of prosperity. 2 Chronicles chapters 30-31.
To save this nation, and influence the future of liberty, the idols that have led to the deterioration of our social order must be overthrown. It’s time to break their hold on the generations educated to believe anything goes as long as it “feels good,” and redirect failing moral attitudes back to what the Founders intended for good. Instituting limits on government (that has become the criminal element in the election process by legalizing corruption) was how this nation was established.
The criminal actions of politicians and administrators undermining voter voices, along with their co-conspirator media, must be prosecuted or the corruption will not stop. Pulling down their idols and altars, praying for a national awakening and restoring the constitutional process derived from a biblical base is the route to salvation.
Before we become another society that dissolved under its own self-indulgence, America can disavow and dismantle the destructive curriculum that has brought the nation to this point where no one has a vote because self-appointed “rulers” usurped it.
Vocally stand with the president who has proven his willingness to challenge inherent corruption for the sake of our nation that was framed to honor God, not reject Him. It may take extra effort to be heard amid the criminal efforts to silence the People, but Americans are known for their diligence, innovation and loyalty to constitutional ideals.
