Dear Ones,

Just last week I read an intriguing book …

Citation: “This Present Darkness,” by Frank E. Peretti, published by Crossway, 1300 Crescent Street, Wheaton, Illinois 60187, copyright 1986, 2003, ISBN-13: 978-1-58134-528-5, 376 pages ..

I was surprised to find quite a few of the psychic phenomena described in the book more or less matched the psychic experiences I have had since they started happening in 1999. I am buoyed by these similarities, and spurred on to relate my own experiences to do with what Fundamental Christianity terms ‘Territorial Spirits’, whose territories I have referred to in my blogs as ‘Big City Fiefdoms’ …

I made 5 pages of notes in the handy blank pages at the end of the edition of Frank Peretti’s book that is cited below.

In the next few blogs, I will be offering comments on passages in the book, using page numbers in the book. I will paraphrase the passages in question; if you want to read the original passages, you will need the same edition cited below, to be sure that the page numbers will match those in my citations.

The book I read was the paperback version, with a dark storm cloud at the top, then red clouds beneath it, and the dark silhouette of a country skyline with a church steeple at the bottom of the cover. It is available on Amazon as “This Present Darkness Paperback – June 26, 2003” … https://www.amazon.com/This-Present-Darkness-Frank-Peretti/dp/1581345283/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=This+Current+Darkness&qid=1617367060&sr=8-2 ..

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
