Prophecy Sign: Perilous times - Ethnos against Ethnos
|Canadian soldier down after shooting at Parliament Hill|
The situation in Ottawa is still ongoing as we post this blog entry. Latest reports indicated that a Canadian soldier was shot and killed at the war memorial site on Parliament hill. The gunman was subsequently terminated inside the Canadian Parliament buildings after a volley of shoots were fired. Reports also indicate that there may have been two other civilians wounded in the altercation. Police reports have also indicated that this may be only a long gunman situation, and that there are no further shooters involved. This shooting and the murder of the Canadian soldier in Quebec of a couple days ago may be related in the fact that the perpetrators where quite likely radicalized Islamists, although that is yet to be confirmed.
We ask that you pray for the families involved and for all Soldiers and first responders that risk their lives on a daily basis to maintain the freedoms we all take for granted.
This world is getting more perilous every day as nations rise against nations and ethnic groups and religious groups rise against each other. We are fast approaching the days Jesus spoke of in addressing his inquisitive disciples some 2,000 years ago.
Then he said to them: "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom, (ethnos), against kingdom, (ethnos). Luke 21:10 NIV
Strong's Concordance: éthnos (from ethō, "forming a custom, culture") – properly, people joined by practicing similar customs or common culture
Canadian Parliament under lockdown after gunmen 'killed soldier standing guard at the National War Memorial before opening fire in the Parliament halls'
A gunman killed a Canadian soldier standing guard at the National War Memorial in Ottawa today before multiple gunmen fired dozens of shots inside the halls of Parliament. Police said 'two or three' gunmen opened fire inside the building, and one has now been shot dead. After Parliament Hill was placed on lockdown, another shooting was reported at the Rideau Centre mall, which is just 500 meters away, suggesting a coordinated attack. A massive police hunt is underway across Ottawa for a gunman authorities believe is still at large. The shooting spree began at 9.52am, as the leaders of Parliament were holding their weekly meetings. Witnesses reported seeing a gunman climb out of a car, grab a rifle, shoot the soldier in the abdomen and then run towards Parliament. Ottawa police received a call at 9.54am that shots had been heard inside the building, while journalists cowering inside said they heard dozens of rounds and could smell gunpowder in the halls.
Canadian soldiers were run down by 'radicalized' man, officials say
The man suspected of crashing his car into two Canadian soldiers, killing one and injuring the other, was being actively investigated by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and had had his passport taken away, officials said Tuesday. National police in Quebec identified the suspect, who died in a confrontation with police shortly after, as 25-year-old Martin Couture-Rouleau. The crash, which occurred Monday morning, was a "deliberate act," according to police officials there, and speculation continued to swirl that the incident might have been a terrorist act. Couture-Rouleau, driving a light-colored Nissan Altima, ran the soldiers down as they were walking in a parking lot near a military academy in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec police said.
Australian jihadist Abdullah Elmir vows Isis will fight 'until black flag is on the top of Buckingham Palace'
A 17-year-old Australian boy has appeared in an Isis propaganda video, where he warns the UK and US that militants will keep fighting until “the black flag” is flying over Buckingham Palace. The video is believed to show Abdullah Elmir, who went missing from his home in Sydney at the end of June after telling his family he was going fishing. Elmir is understood to have travelled with another 16-year-old Australian boy in June to Turkey and then crossed the border into Syria to join Isis fighters, ABC News reports.
