CSN Sunday – Messages of Light – 2/7/2021
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.
The Parable of the Vineyard Owner
“Listen to another parable: There was a landowner, who planted a vineyard, put a fence around it, dug a winepress in it, and built a watchtower. He leased it to tenant farmers and went away. When the time came to harvest fruit, he sent his servants to the farmers to collect his fruit. The farmers took his servants, beat one, killed another, and stoned a third. Again, he sent other servants, more than the first group, and they did the same to them. Finally, he sent his son to them. ‘They will respect my son,’ he said.
“But when the tenant farmers saw the son, they said to each other, ‘This is the heir. Come, let’s kill him and take his inheritance.’ So they seized him, threw him out of the vineyard, and killed him. Therefore, when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those farmers?”
“He will completely destroy those terrible men,” they told him, “and lease his vineyard to other farmers who will give him his fruit at the harvest.”
Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures:
‘The stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone.
This is what the Lord has done
and it is wonderful in our eyes?’
Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people producing its fruit. Whoever falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will shatter him.”
When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they knew he was speaking about them. Although they were looking for a way to arrest him, they feared the crowds, because the people regarded him as a prophet. Matthew 21:33-46
In July of 2020 just after Independence Day, my Message of Light focused upon this nation in a message entitled: “Retaining Freedom – Through a Revolution of Heart.” In the Messages of Light today, I am offering the single message, and I am going to once again focus upon this nation in light how it has been transformed within the past four months. In late October, began offering a series of articles reiterating prophetic words from great men of America’s past. In another article focusing of Ben Franklin’s prophecy of the expiration of the Republic, I reiterated a quote of the great patriot:
…because I think a general Government necessary for us, and there is no form of Government but what may be a blessing to the people if well administered, and believe farther that this is likely to be well administered for a course of years, and can only end in despotism, as other forms have done before it, when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic Government, being incapable of any other. (emphasis mine)
After the election, amidst the confusion regarding the legitimate outcome, I also offered quotations from Thomas Paine after Joe Biden predicted a “Dark Winter” for America. I
was concerned that patriots who loved their country would lose hope in the effort to hold on to self evident truths and the cause of Freedom. Just before George Washington’s attack on Trenton on December 26, 1776, Thomas Paine published the first volume of a series of his pamphlets entitled “The American Crisis.” The famous “Crisis,” begins:
These are the times that try men’s souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; …Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation
with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.
The deepest concern in such a time as we find ourselves was focused upon the real gravity of the election outcome, as it was not just another election, and I believe millions of Americans share that sentiment. In late January, it had become quite clear to me that there was no cavalry coming to rescue American citizens from the fate that had befallen the nation — a fate that many are still in one form of denial over. In such a dark time, I had offered a prophecy from Abraham Lincoln:
We, when mounting the stage of existence, found ourselves the legal inheritors of these fundamental blessings. We toiled not in the acquirement or establishment of them—they are a legacy bequeathed us, by a once hardy, brave, and patriotic, but now lamented and departed race of ancestors. Their’s was the task (and nobly they performed it) to possess themselves, and through themselves, us, of this goodly land; and to uprear upon its hills and its valleys, a political edifice of liberty and equal rights; ‘tis ours only, to transmit these, the former, unprofaned by the foot of an invader; the latter, undecayed by the lapse of time and untorn by usurpation, to the latest generation that fate shall permit the world to know. This task of gratitude to our fathers, justice to ourselves, duty to posterity, and love for our species in general, all imperatively require us faithfully to perform.
How then shall we perform it?—At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it?—Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never!—All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years.
At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.
I was concerned over the cowardice of key people who were considered “leaders” in the nation who could lose their courage to keep the Republic. Indeed, good people through their own fear or ignorance have chosen the “course of least resistance,” which sadly is no action whatsoever. It is the fulfillment of the adage that all it takes for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing. My message today is about this. It is long, but from the heart. I hope you could receive it.
Today we also have three articles in our “Recommended Reading” section. One of them is an article from myself that I refer to in my main message. One other article link is to a an open letter from Dr. James Dobson and it is a message promoting hope for the future of our nation as well. It had been featured in the CSN edition previously. The third article is about how the Catholics are beginning to relate to a Joe Biden Administration.
We also have five videos for today. Two are dealing with Mike Lindell’s effort to get the truth our about the election fraud, and he is doing an amazing job to not allow people to sweep it under the rug and pretend it never happened. One is from John Wayne that older readers may truly appreciate.
The other videos are musical and are all special. Most we have featured before, but we hope that you can enjoy them all!
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, who are called by His name, humble ourselves, which in these days may bring us to our knees within such a toxic spiritual environment; and to pray in earnest (like our nation’s existence depends on it because it does); and to seek His face (as never before), and sincerely repent (as in ‘fall on your knees” type of repentance), and turn from our wicked ways – because if we do not, our land will not be healed, but further divided and consumed by the wickedness of those who failed to turn away from temptation and evil.
“The Inheritance and Preservation of Freedom”
My article from July 5, 2020 referenced above started out: “Yet, what was the primary impetus from the Founders to create a nation conceived in Liberty?” I submit to readers that the impetus or inspiration was rooted in the dramatic escape from slavery from the ancient tyranny under the Pharoahs that existed in Ancient Egypt. Moses was the one whom God chose to lead such a monumental effort of “biblical proportions.” Yet, if one truly understands that Moses was not the liberator before he became the one chosen of
God to challenge the government of the Pharaoh to let the Hebrew people go. Yet, if one truly understands the interchange between God and Moses, the Hebrew raised in an Egyptian palace resisted and attempted to reject God’s Will for his destiny.
Unfortunately, many improperly educated American citizens do not fully know this part of the story behind Moses taking responsibility for an aspect of God’s Providence. The sad reality is that Ameircans too often rely on Hollywood to educate us on our history rather than historians. Moses essentially argued with God over what God wanted him to do, which was to carry out His Will for the Hebrew people. Eventually, after receiving the various assurances he needed from his Father in Heaven, Moses accepted the mission. The bigger picture here is not just an escape from slavery into freedom. It involved the arduous effort of finding and reinhabiting the promised land — land promised to their great ancestor Abraham. This was the fundamental promise of the inheritance of this “land of milk and honey.”
Ultimately, the inheritance and eventual occupation of such a land did not simply involve walking in and taking over. It had to be fought for with people who already lived there. It also involved setting up a more formal way of organizing and maintaining the population of those who had escaped the slavery of Egypt. This required some form of government to be developed. This was not an easy task. The Hebrews had lived in slavery for over 400 years, so how would they formulate a government that would be void of the residue and elements of slavery? In His Divine Wisdom, God provided the basis for government – a government of former slaves. He provided Moses the Ten Commandments to be the fundamental basis for a government of the people. Unfortunately, over time, it began to take on the trappings and structure of secular governments in their midst.
The great concern of Moses gravitated toward the adherence to and retention and practice of the Ten Commandments as the Hebrew people entered the land of Canaan.
Last week, I reiterated Moses’ concerns regarding entering into the promised land in quoting Deuteronomy 30:11-20. He stated clearly: “I am commanding you to be loyal to the Lord, to live the way he has told you, and to obey his laws and teachings. You are about to cross the Jordan River and take the land that he is giving you. If you obey him, you will live and become successful and powerful.” History demonstrates that his heart of concern for his people was justified, as the nation drifted away from obeying God’s laws and His teachings. Through eventual division, and the Babylonian Captivity, the Jewish people were brought again under slavery by King Nebuchadnezzar. Ultimately, God acted through another historical figure by the name of Cyrus the Great, who was willing to granted permission to the Jewish people to return to their homeland.
Yet, by the time of the coming of the Messiah, the Jewish people were once again under a two-tiered subjugation from severe authorities. One level was imposed by the Roman Empire that controlled the entire area around the Mediterranean Sea. The Romans had a way of using local leaders to control the local populations, and in the time Jesus came upon the scene, it was the infamous King Herod who attempted to kill the infant Jesus, and another King Herod, though still compliant to the Roman dominion, who complied as well with the ruling theocracy of the Jewish Sanhedrin the second level of dominion under the ruling elites and ruling classes that had developed within the Hebrew nation.
In such a time, Jesus challenged the interpretation of the Law of these ruling elites and proclaimed the coming of the Kingdom of God. Yet, what developed from his sacrifice, although initially an underground movement of Christ’s disciples, was the universal church and another religious hierarchy.
400 years of dominion under the Roman Empire ended when the church prevailed over tyranny. However, the same problem that confronted the Hebrew slaves who escaped from Egypt, also confronted the Christian movement. Eventually, after another 400 years, the Holy Roman Empire was constructed under the initiative and authority of the Roman Catholic Church. Yet, the rampant corruption of the Church led to the Protestant Reformation. After great conflict and warfare from this point, the initial impetus of Jesus proclaiming the Kingdom of God on Earth, a new and different land was once again settled by Christians who were genuinely sincere in escaping the direct tyranny of their home country.
400 years ago, the Pilgrim Fathers, who had suffered greatly due to their government’s persecution of the Separatists, escaped the direct dominion of the British Empire by crossing the Atlantic Ocean and simply surviving all of the difficulties in a new world that they dared to occupy. 400 years ago they established a new covenant with God, and all of their pioneering efforts lead to planting the seeds of faith in the soil of New England. It was such faith that developed in such an area that led to notions that a Land of the Free could be established — a new nation, free of tyranny. It was a very bold and dangerous idea, but an idea that became fulfilled in the birth of the United States of America. This was what gave the Founders their reason for fighting for such a Land of the Free.
Theirs was a Protestant-based, but Christian-oriented initiative with their fundamental values and ideals rooted in the Bible and an inheritance of the Judeo-Christian heritage. But, the Founders were not seeking to establish a state-mandated religion. They were wise enough to have understood the realistic history of that vast historical heritage. Yet, it is a history of ups and downs and victories and losses in God’s Providence. America stood as a symbol of freedom for the rest of the world for over two centuries because it was a nation favored by our Father in Heaven. At the foundation of the United States is the concept of God-given rights agreed upon by the Founders and proclaimed by the Declaration of Independence. And, those Founders humbly submitted to the “Supreme Judge of the world” for the “rectitude” of their intentions — a submission to His Will.
In the past four months, how many of America’s “leaders” have appeared to submit to Heavenly Father’s Will? Most readers know the answer. Yet, while it is true that many of American “leaders” have drifted from our founding principles, more of the problem has been the confusion and ignorance over the genuine sovereignty of “We the People.” As a people, we have lost touch with this fundamental concept at the heart of the nation. It was “We the People” who were the previous stewards of the Land of the Free. As young Abraham Lincoln proclaimed ‘We the People” “found ourselves the legal inheritors of these fundamental blessings.” Yet, in the process of time, good people chose to do nothing as they witnessed corrupt politicians and genuine criminals, who had little regard for the founding principles, usurp the positions of leadership.
The stewards who inherited the blessings, those good people, chose to do little as they witnessed a political class taking over this promised land. Now, the “vineyard” is under the dominion of criminals. Now, how will the current “stewards” and “leaders” view their opportunities as the Vineyard Owner seeks to reap the fruit of the land? Another hard question may have to address the nature or quality of the fruit to be harvested in this land at this time. How does our Father Heavenly Father look at this rather tragic reality?
While it may not be something that Americans want to deal with, we need to examine our situation not from our own viewpoint, but from God’s view of this situation.
I humbly submit that of all of the prophecies regarding America I have recently shared, the “The Parable of the Vineyard Owner” from Jesus may help “We the People” realize more clearly what may happen in the future to our beloved Republic. So, before God’s Kingdom is taken away from us, and while we still have the freedom to do so, I believe “We the People” can re-establish covenant with Heavenly Father. It is not a time to submit to evil, but a time to re-submit ourselves to God’s Will. We can do in this time what God’s people have been doing for thousands of years. We need to humbly seek His face, but even more to seek His mind and His heart and His Will for this time in this place. It seems to me that if we do nothing, or give up, the dominion of evil will continue to grow. If we re-establish covenant with God, and accept His will, and bring forth good fruit, He would not seek to remove His Kingdom from those burning with faith and truly producing the fruit of which our Father in Heaven can be proud. It is not too late! We just need to start over!
