Anyone else training this weekend?
Take heart, this has been going on for a long, long time. Here’s a good example on being ready from Nehemiah (Neh 4: 14-23 NIV) that was brought to my attention by this company, thanks to a good friend alerting me to it in an email this week:
14 After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, “Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.”
15 When our enemies heard that we were aware of their plot and that God had frustrated it, we all returned to the wall, each to our own work.
16 From that day on, half of my men did the work, while the other half were equipped with spears, shields, bows and armor. The officers posted themselves behind all the people of Judah 17 who were building the wall. Those who carried materials did their work with one hand and held a weapon in the other, 18 and each of the builders wore his sword at his side as he worked. But the man who sounded the trumpet stayed with me.
19 Then I said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, “The work is extensive and spread out, and we are widely separated from each other along the wall. 20 Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, join us there. Our God will fight for us!”
21 So we continued the work with half the men holding spears, from the first light of dawn till the stars came out. 22 At that time I also said to the people, “Have every man and his helper stay inside Jerusalem at night, so they can serve us as guards by night and as workers by day.” 23 Neither I nor my brothers nor my men nor the guards with me took off our clothes; each had his weapon, even when he went for water.[a]
Shocker! The Swiss recently raised their terror alert and are hunting for four Syrians who are planning attacks against Switzerland and cities in the US including Chicago. They are also planning attacks in Toronto and Geneva. The US intelligence services are the ones that tipped them off.
Two Syrians were arrested in Switzerland but it’s not known if they are tied to the other four. They had traces of explosives in their car.
The four are believed to be part of the Mourad Fares network. Fares is a known recruiter for jihad in Syria. French intelligence sources say he’s worked for ISIS, mainly in Francophone countries, and in Switzerland, including in Geneva.
ISIS has been threatening terror attacks in Switzerland for months and a January video encouraged an attack in Switzerland.
A photo of the four terrorists has been released so if you see these men, notify the US…
