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).
“Within the past century man has proven his inhumanity by his willingness to destroy his fellow man.”
-Jim Bakker in “Prosperity and the Coming Apocalypse”
Russia’s secret service agency has foiled a plot by terrorists to attack the city of Sochi, host of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games.
The FSB discovered ten stockpiles of guns and ammunition last week in the breakaway republic of Abkhazia. The raid discovered portable surface-to-air missiles, grenade launches, flame throwers, grenades & explosives and rifles.
The attacks are believed to be masterminded by Doku Umarov, a Chechnen rebel leader who has arranged delivery of weapons and ammunition to Abkhazia.
Umarov carried out a bomb attack in the Moscow Airport in 2011 that killed 35.
Russian authorities said the terrorists were planning to spend the next two years smuggling the explosives into Sochi in preparation for the Games. They apparently based the belief on maps found among the seized weapons.
Sochi is located in the same area as Russia’s North Caucasus region which features near daily violence from an Islamist insurgency.
