Rev 6:3-4 NCV When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, "Come!" Then another horse came out, a red one. Its rider was given power to take away peace (prosperity, rest) from the earth and to make people kill each other (butcher, slaughter, to maim violently, in streets), and he was given a big sword (assassins sword, terrorist, loud, mighty, sore afraid).
“Hardly a day goes by when our senses are not bludgeoned by some new outbreak of terrorism in the Middle East. Despite our best efforts at making and keeping the peace, political, economic, and religious tensions often lead to unrest, violence, and riots.”
-Jim Bakker in “Prosperity and the Coming Apocalypse”
Five Al Qaeda members were killed in an airstrike overnight in southern Yemen.
The attack destroyed a house in the town of Jaar in the Abyan province. Al Qaeda has been using the political turmoil in the country as an opportunity to seize land. Currently, the terrorist organization controls Jaar and Abyan’s provincial capital city of Zinibar.
Officials did not specify if the attack was carried out by US drone planes or piloted aircraft. The US and Yemen have been working in joint operations to drive Al Qaeda out of the country.
