CSN Sunday – Messages of Light – 8/9/2020
Note From the Founder…
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.
““Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:4-14
In last week’s Messages of Light, we featured a message from Rachel Toland, the founder of Remnant Rising, who offered a realization she received from Heavenly Father about this time of “the shaking” in this nation and around the world. In the introduction to her message, I stated that through praying about her very lengthy message: “In my prayers, I received that God wants this message intact. It is quite insightful and truly powerful. Heavenly Father is who He is, and He is not confined by our limited view of reality. Christians and people of faith have allowed this nation to be corrupted, bit by bit, city by city, state by state, over a course of time. We are no longer in covenant in the way our Pilgrim Fathers pledged themselves to Him, and we no longer hold on to sacred, self-evident truths described in the Declaration of Independence. Those who are arrogant and proud may want to deny this. But, those with eyes to see, can see what is unfolding in this nation. Those with ears to hear, can know the lies of the culture and society in which we live must be a true abomination to Heaven.”
Rachel Toland’s words were not idle words. I truly believe that God is behind the shaking, but He is also calling those who feel they must work to save our nation in alignment with His efforts, His ways to save the Land of the Free. There are many who know this to be true, and they are willing to fight in this spiritual war to restore our Republic. Today’s message speaks to this perspective as well. Apostle Tim Taylor is one who is very aware of the war that has spilled onto Earth from Heaven. A few weeks ago, the Messages of Light featured part 1 of Apostle Taylor’s, “How to Apply Ancient Wisdom to Modern Issues!” Today, we present part 2. In case readers missed it, it was also included in our Citizen Sentinels Network Sunday edition: https://
Apostle Tim Taylor is the Founder, and overseer of Kingdom League International & the 1Church1Day strategy. He shared three messages on this theme initially, and recently he offered a fourth installment. We will post them all, but for readers who want instant access, we will provide a link to the original blog spot at the end of this excerpt.
We are also offering two videos focusing on the Battle Hymn of the Republic, one is more of an introduction by Orson Welles, and the other is the song sung by Angela Primm from Dinesh D’Souza’s movie “Death of a Nation” from 2018.
Finally, we are also offering a poem from our CSN Editor-in-Chief, Judy Palmer, who managed to sneak in a much needed vacation to a wonderful place in Iowa that I truly love. I was able to visit Judy Palmer there when her extended family were having a family re-union in 2018. It was a very special time because as a child, I grew up in that area. It was magical then, and it still happens to be. We offer this poem as a message of light about a peaceful lake because we all need a peaceful place we can retreat to in dark times, to be free and to hope for happier and more fulfilling times.
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 mercy, and turn from wickedness – even if it may mean to “look in the mirror,” within our own minds and hearts to see if we align with our Heavenly Father’s words and wisdom, and to discern Satan’s lies and snares, and keep determining to build God’s Kingdom.
The following is Part 2 of an article with the same title. A link to the original first in this series of articles can be found at the end of this excerpt. Parts 3 and 4 are also there as well, in case readers want to get to Tim Taylor’s points quickly.
Racism has come to the forefront of our nation. The focus of all my articles which follows in this series will be specifically to people who call themselves Christian. I am not surprised when someone who is not a “Christian” practices sin or has screwed up ideas. However, I am often shocked and disgusted with the things some who call themselves Christians do or say.
Why? Because Christian, according to Webster’s Dictionary, refers to one who professes belief in the teachings of Jesus Christ. So they carry the title but their beliefs and practices are so far removed from Christ’s teachings. Why? It’s because they don’t even know what the Lord said. A recent Barna poll revealed that only 11% of those who claim to be Christian have even read the Bible through one time.
Most people who claim to be Christian haven’t even read the Bible much less studied it to know what it says. Therefore they are easily deceived. For example, it seems like everyone in the world knows Matthew 7:1 which says, “Judge not, that you be not judged.
One Ignorant Accusation Caused Many a Christian to Retreat
This one ignorant accusation on the lips of most anyone has caused many a Christian to retreat from engaging in the most important cultural issues of the day. I say ‘ignorant accusation’ because people are ignorant of God’s word. For example they don’t know
that the Bible says:
Jesus was preaching a message that started in Matthew 5 and He was in a flow. They don’t know that in Matthew 6:1-4 that He says, don’t do your charitable deeds like the hypocrites, in Matthew 6:5 He says, don’t pray like the hypocrites, and in Matthew 6:16 He says, don’t fast like the hypocrites so that when He got to Matthew 7:1 it was understood He meant, don’t judge like the hypocrites for by verse 15 He is teaching us how to judge false prophets.
1 Corinthians 2:15 says, “But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one.”
The spiritual person judges all things. Things are words and actions. They do not judge people because that’s God’s job.
How do you judge words and actions? You compare them to God’s word. By doing that you can learn to discern both good and evil. For example, James 3:13-18 says, “Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. 15 This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. 16 For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. 17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. 18 Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.”
1 Corinthians 6:2-3 2 Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 3 Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life?
Jesus said in John 12:47-48 7, “And if anyone hears My words and does not believe, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. 48 He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him—the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day. “
How will we be judged? Again, Jesus says in Matthew 12:35-37 5, “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. 36 But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. 37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”
Bottomline, you choose to believe God’s word, or you choose NOT to believe it. Your choice will be revealed by your testimony. Our own words will judge us. They will be compared to God’s word and God’s word has already decided what will occur.
For example, each one of us will stand alone before the judgment seat of Christ. Paul says in 2 Corinthians 5:10-11, “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. 11 Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are well known to God, and I also trust are well known in your consciences.”
My friends, there are eternal consequences for our decisions today. You can choose to be ignorant and suffer the consequences for your decision. Or, you can choose to be wise and recognize that your choices now could lead to an eternity of reward.
Revelation 22:12-15 12 “’And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.’ 14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. 15 But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.”
Are You Practicing a Lie?
If you are one of those Christian’s who’ve been backed out of the arena of culture due to Matthew 7:1 then you are practicing a lie. This is why the devil has had free reign to enact laws, policies and cultural norms based upon lies that kill, steal, destroy, sow discord, oppress, enslave and put a people into bondage. That’s hell on earth and that my friends is Satan’s plan.
It is time for the real Church to arise. The real Church is the solution. The real Church loves, knows and practices God’s word which in turn will release the wisdom of heaven.
So, I am going to help you by addressing some current sayings, thoughts, ideas, laws or policies by comparing those thoughts with God’s word. In this process Satan’s plans, false prophets, doctrines of demons and his snares will be exposed, one lie at a time.

Lake Magic By Judy Palmer
The red-wing blackbird nibbles at the feeder
As the wind whips flags on the white docks.
Boats traverse across the lake as the
wind excites wakes so skiers can jump them.
Sightseeing boats carry chairs filled with
Awestruck dreamers of what might be.
The lake’s waves waft upon the sand shores
Lulling owners back to their afternoon naps.
Despite all its exterior excitement, the
water accepts all boaters’ frustration
And skiers’ swearing and tears from lovers.
Folding these emotions under, the water
never tells and always wants to play.
Oh, the magic of the Lake!
