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”
Tehran has been using commercial passenger jetliners to smuggle explosives and weapons into Lebanon, Syria and Europe.
ZDF German Broadcasting reported that two Iranian based passenger airlines; Iran Air and Yas Air, have been used to transport weapons to Damascus and Beirut.
NBC News stated that the weapons were presumed to be ordered by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, which supports the regime of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and the terrorist group called Hezbollah in Lebanon.
U.S. officials have long accused Tehran of using commercial aircraft to smuggle weapons to Hezbollah, the terrorist group operating out of Lebanon.
Turkish officials in Diyarbakir found and seized weapons and explosives on board a Yas Air passenger liner in March of 2011. The shipment was destined for Damascus, Syria.
According to findings of intelligence services, Iran has been sending weapons and explosives via passenger flights to and from Western Europe, where they can be used for possible terrorist attacks.
It is also unclear whether the Iranian Airliners have valid insurance to cover a possible explosion on board their public transportation in foriegn ports of entry. This is a deep security and safety concern of major international airport hubs. These civilian aircraft themselves (containing military cargo) could fuel concern over another 9-11.
