CSN Sunday – Messages of Light – 2/28/2021
Dear CSN newsletter readers,
The Citizen Sentinels Network has maintained a project, originally deemed the David Project, since 2018. 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 such a time as this in our nation and in the world, there is clear and present danger requiring 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.
Jesus Heals a Boy Possessed by an Impure Spirit “When they came to the other disciples, they saw a large crowd around them and the teachers of the law arguing with them. As soon as all the people saw Jesus, they were overwhelmed with wonder and ran to greet him.
‘What are you arguing with them about?’ he asked.
A man in the crowd answered, “Teacher, I brought you my son, who is possessed by a spirit that has robbed him of speech. Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to drive out the spirit, but they could not.”
‘You unbelieving generation,’ Jesus replied, ‘how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy to me.’
So they brought him. When the spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth.
Jesus asked the boy’s father, “How long has he been like this?”
“From childhood,” he answered. “It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us.”
“‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.”
Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene, he rebuked the impure spirit. “You deaf and mute spirit,” he said, “I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.”
The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, “He’s dead.” But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up.
After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?”
He replied, “This kind can come out only by prayer.’” Mark 9:14-29
The Power of Faith
Afterward the disciples came to Jesus privately and asked, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?”
“Because you have so little faith,” He answered. “For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:19-20
The topic of faith is an incredibly broad topic that spans the wisdom within the Old Testament
and the New Testament. Yet, there is a fundamental consistency in such messaging. But, with the wisdom of Jesus, people of faith learn that “…all things are possible with God.” Mark 9:14-29
And, certainly the faith that exists within those people who are called by His name is truly being stretched and tested in such a time as this, as “We the People” have definitely experienced a period of darkness and plague and tribulation. The paradox that exists throughout history tells us that it is fairly easy to “keep the faith” in happy times and times of prosperity, but so difficult to maintain faith in the times that try people’s souls. This is such a time.
This is one serious point to contemplate regarding personal faith in our Heavenly Father. Biblical stories of faith are quite inspiring, and they tend to uplift us. But, do such biblical stories sustain us when the “going gets tough” or when trials intensify? Many Americans alive today have never had trials like we have faced in recent decades and certainly over the course of the past year, with the possible exception of immigrants who left behind a life of poverty, suffering and strife. Yet, today in America this has become increasingly real, and millions are praying to confront the evil that has befallen our nation. In the Book of Luke, Jesus is quoted in reference to a story he told about a widow who kept pestering a certain judge. Jesus explains that the judge eventually granted the widow’s pleadings for justice. However, after this story, he questioned his disciples:
“And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
It is truly a worthwhile question. In such a time as this, will the Son of Man find a faithful generation? Or will he find a generation filled with fear, living within a culture of corruption and death that they have readily tolerated?
We are offering two messages today approaching faith from different perspectives. The first message today is from a new writer who has decided to speak up and speak out in conjunction with our Citizen Sentinel efforts and endeavors. Lorena Emeno holds no special position within society, is not an elected official, or a minster of faith. She is simply a normal person of genuine faith who is sharing from her heart about what is within her. Allow her to explain what it is that is within her; receive what she has to share with us.
Today’s second message from Apostle Tim Taylor, which is not long, but it includes a video presentation that goes into more coverage of his message on the “Great Reset.” For those who read our Thursday CSN newsletter, there was also an article there from another writer new to our network, Jim Bratten, on the “Great Reset.” Today’s more spiritual perspective on this topic contains some concepts that align with events in the Book of Esther. And coincidentally, since the Jewish holiday of the Feast of Purim just occurred last week, it is an appropriate message for such a time as this.
In addition to these two messages, we have several other videos today. One of them is embedded in Apostle Tim Taylor’s message. Other videos are from Dutch Sheets on his own program, as well as on the Victory Channel with Abby Johnson, Mario Murrillo, and Sen. Rapert from Arkansas who has been involved with the efforts their state is making toward the abolition of abortion. This program is presented in two parts and well worth watching as they’re both very powerful regarding the issue of the evils of abortion.
There are two others which are musical videos, one is featured because Dutch Sheets mentions it in his own presentation. We also have five articles in our “Recommended Reading” section, and an emphasis on the recent passage of HR5 is featured. There are also a few news articles that are in our “Around the Republic” section.
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 humble ourselves, seek His face, repent, and turn from wickedness – even if that may mean to reach down inside ourselves to find our deeper faith and to take a serious stand and bravely march forward in such faith to take responsibility for this nation. We can arise and return this nation to Heavenly Father and build ‘One Nation Under God.’
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12 (ESV)
In the past three and a half months, many of us have been living in a whirlwind – the time spinning between hours of despair, fear and dread over the coming and now arrived Leftist regime which has overtaken our country and hours of faith and conviction, that God will protect and provide, that Jesus is truly with us to the End of the Age, even in dark days.
How do we live our lives now? There is so much true evil to fear, coming to pass in policy on a daily basis, and a people who have no respect for God or for us, and in those who run the government, a true hatred of all that is good. We all prayed sincerely and for many months for God to let President Trump continue his work. That prayer was not answered in a way we expected. So what do we do now? For those of us working and living daily lives, not in high places, but living in the kingdom, where do we go from here?
How do we repent of all we have participated in as we surely need to do, but also walk forward in faith?
This is a question I am asking myself on an hourly basis?
I do not know if my thoughts are answers to prayer or only my thoughts, but this is a small marker on an unknown trail of a way to move forward.
I’ve been thinking about David and his encounter with Goliath for a few weeks. He was outraged at what the Philistines, through Goliath, were saying about God’s people and their strength and faith.
At the beginning of the story told in I Samuel, the Philistines had only contempt for Israel. The Israelites, for their part, were terrified of the Philistines, and of Goliath. His constant barrage against them went on for days. There seemed to be no hope.
But then David came along with a different perspective
“… For who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he has taunted and defied the armies of the living God?” I Samuel 17:26 (ESV)
David had no doubt that the God who had helped him conquer vicious beasts attacking his sheep, would not only rescue him from an encounter with Goliath but also let him vanquish that enemy. Again, he said God would hand Goliath over to him because the Philistine champion had dared defy the army of the living God.
The Israelites were terrorized and disheartened, as are we.
But, maybe we need to claim David’s battle cry for our own.
Who are these Leftists that they so blatantly defy and mock God in so many arenas it’s almost dizzying to comprehend?
Perhaps we need to begin praying for God’s ways to succeed because they are right and good, not just because we seek to save our land and our families. And in honesty, most of us admit we will ask too if it His kind and merciful will, that He will bless us and save us in the land of the living.
We need to pray a lot, both in thanksgiving for all we have been spared and for all those who are fighting and will fight legal and moral battles for the ways of God.
Like David, we have a lot to be remembered about how God has delivered us – we have a lot to be thankful for in the past four years.
God allowed President Trump to win in 2016 over what might have been a darker force than is now present and prevail over countless enemies and opposition in that time.
Each of us can point out different accomplishments his administration made that are important in the spheres on which we focus.
True, all he did may be undone in the coming days, but we can still thank God every day we got to experience it. We can thank God, we have not just endured four years of a Clinton administration in which our country was destroyed and are only looking forward to more of the same.
For His reasons, God allowed us instead, four years of a good man, who made good decisions and stood up for God and the people of God.
We can thank God for this foundation, and for all those President Trump brought together in the past four years, all the 75 million – and more uncounted – of us who voted to put him back in office.
Those of us on everyday streets are solidly behind him, and now know each other and of our strength and commitment to our country and for most of us, to the Godly values on which our country was founded.
We can thank God President Trump was acquitted in the “insurrection” impeachment vendetta. And, we can thank God for the courage and investigative work of Mike Lindell and his willingness to speak truth and put his business on the line.
After we have thanked our good God for all he has given us, then we can start to pray for all those in government and Conservative media who are standing up for the cause of righteousness and against the evil that is coming out of Washington on a daily basis.
Each of us knows who most speaks to our heart, who with their words, most inspires us to know we are not alone in our convictions.
Pray for them – that their voices remain and grow stronger, that they and their families be under God’s protection. Pray they will not be forcibly silenced.
Pray for Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley, for Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene and Madison Cawthorn. They publicly speak up for both Christ and the Conservative cause.
Pray for these and all the others working to live out their Christian convictions that God will protect them and give them the strength and wisdom to continue fighting for what is right and to continue standing in the face of all opposition.
Pray for our enemies, that there may be those among them who will find Christ and become like Paul.
It is not we who are truly under attack. It is our God and his ways.
Are we going to stand with him?
“And now Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness.” Acts 4:29 (ESV)
How many of you have heard the term used on the news about the “Great Reset?” Depending upon how far back you go you’ll hear many say it is a conspiracy theory. It’s fear mongering etc.
But in truth, it is a real thing. Who’s idea is it? It is the elites. Who are the elites? In 2020 it included 53 heads of states, some select wealthy people and some celebrities. Click here: https://www.businessinsider.
Business Insider says, “Davos is the informal name of the annual four-day conference held by The World Economic Forum in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland. The non-profit organization’s aim is to “engage the foremost political, business, cultural and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas,” according to its website.
Their goal? Rule the world! Globalism. Don’t believe me? Watch this short video I made. Their favorite term these days? “Reset!” Their preferred government/economic system: Socialism! I will continue to highlight over and over and over again, that socialism was introduced as a concept through Marx and Engel’s book, “The Communist Manifesto” in 1848 and one of the planks in this concept was the abolition of religion. They don’t want any sort of moral accountability because to do what they want to do requires the twisting of truth and or lying. That’s my opinion. It is antichrist. It is anti-God.
It’s ultimately why the policies of globalist elites, and socialist leftists governments and celebrities always produce murder, oppression, lying, killing, stealing, destruction and a different set of laws and justice for different people groups (lawlessness). It’s John 8:32, John 8:44, John 10:10 and 2 Thessalonians 2:7-9 being manifested. It is Satan, the Devil, the Antichrist spirit at work through Satan’s people. It’s the spiritual war in Revelation 12 working itself out on a global scale.
So I am going to do my job. God called us in 1991 as watchmen. Our assignment, our ministry, our call is summed up in this vision statement. “Declare and prepare.” With that in mind, this morning I discovered the Bible has an answer for this great reset. It in fact is a snare! The amazing thing is, you’ll be shocked as to who is going to be ensnared by this “reset.” You’ll also then discover why the following scriptures need to be prayed and proclaimed by all.
I encourage you to take the time to watch the video and then proclaim the following scriptures with understanding. Then I urge you to pray and obey yourself. For the video click here: https://www.1church1day.org/
“The nations have sunk down in the pit which they made;
In the net which they hid, their own foot is caught.
The LORD is known by the judgment He executes;
The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands.”
Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: “As I live, surely My oath which he despised, and My covenant which he broke, I will recompense on his own head. I will spread My net over him, and he shall be taken in My snare. I will bring him to Babylon and try him there for the treason which he committed against Me.”
Plead my cause, O LORD, with those who strive with me;
Fight against those who fight against me.
Take hold of shield and buckler,
And stand up for my help.
Also draw out the spear,
And stop those who pursue me.
Say to my soul,
“I am your salvation.”
Let those be put to shame and brought to dishonor
Who seek after my life;
Let those be turned back and brought to confusion
Who plot my hurt.
Let them be like chaff before the wind,
And let the angel of the LORD chase them.
Let their way be dark and slippery,
And let the angel of the LORD pursue them.
For without cause they have hidden their net for me in a pit,
Which they have dug without cause for my life.
Let destruction come upon him unexpectedly,
And let his net that he has hidden catch himself;
Into that very destruction let him fall.
And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD;
It shall rejoice in His salvation.”
