Revelation 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).
The U.S. has closed 21 embassies and consulates around the world through next week due to intelligence reports that say a major terrorist attack is planned by al-Qaeda.
The State Department said that closing the embassies for the rest of this week instead of just the weekend was due to “an abundance of caution” related to the initial threat.
The state department also issued a global travel alert through the end of August for any American traveling to the Middle East or North Africa.
“Current information suggests that al-Qaeda and affiliated organisations continue to plan terrorist attacks both in the region and beyond, and that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August,” the state department said in reference to the Middle East.
The UK has also issued travel warnings and urged all British nationals to leave Yemen.
