    I am very blessed by your devotionals and videos etc. Thanks ever so much to you as Abba already gets a lot of thank you’s for what they do for me. I have 1 question, where is it you have done a teaching about God dwelling in dark places. I know its in several places but would like a ”larger” explanation. I love psalm 91 and want so to understand it better.

      Darlene; so glad you are blessed by the posts. Regarding God dwelling in darkness, we cover that topic extensively in The Foundation Stone. All four hours of that teaching are here on our site. Shalom and be blessed.

    Bill;
    Knowing that you claim to be a “history buff” I came across this today at World Net Daily which incidentally blew me away in the sense that I did not know that America from from it’s infancy had already encountered the Islamic culture and Koran..
    It is truly remarkable that the founding fathers of our country already had come to an honest understanding of what to do, of course that is also when men in governing authority valued the Word of God as “Eternal Truth”.

    At that time, America (along with other Western nations) was a victim of Muslim terrorist attacks being launched out of northern Africa and the Middle East. Seeking to solve the problem, in 1784 Congress dispatched John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson to go meet with the Islamicists. Adams and Jefferson candidly asked the Muslim ambassador the motivation behind the unprovoked attacks and then reported his answer to the State Department:

    “The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the laws of their Prophet [Muhammad] – that it was written in their Quran that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners; that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners; and that every Musselman [Muslim] who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

    William Eaton, similarly sent to negotiate with the Muslims, likewise reported:

    “Taught by revelation that war with the Christians will guarantee the salvation of their souls, … their [the Muslims’] inducements to desperate fighting are very powerful.”

    Based on what they learned, Jefferson identified the obvious solution:

    “If we wish our commerce to be free and uninsulted [i.e., unattacked], we must let these nations see that we have an energy [willingness to use force], which at present they disbelieve. The low opinion they entertain of our powers cannot fail to involve us soon in a … war.”

    George Washington agreed, affirming that what was needed was decisive military action that would “reform those enemies to mankind – or crush them into non-existence.”

    Shalom, shalom
