2 Timothy 3:1 1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

Folks, this is not going to be your typical article that I commonly write, well maybe it is, I am not sure.

I have been a watchman on the wall for some time. My job is to warn Christian regarding what God impresses upon me to warn them about. Today I was not expecting to write this article, but here it is.

This weekend we witnessed an out and out Muslim attack on US soil.

IEDs – Improvised Explosive Devices were discovered and some of these devices detonated. People were harmed and a clear message that war has come to US soil.

But a different kind of war.

ISIS and other Muslim terror groups are now active on US soil. This is something that many of us have been warning about for some time.

Well, now it is here and now we have to deal with it and protect ourselves and our families.

As a Christian, I am not one who promotes a first strike / offensive procedures when it comes to protecting myself or my family.

I believe in taking a hard defensive posture and prepare for a possible attack. As men of God, we do everything in our power and ability to protect our home and family.

Folks, we now live in a world where we are being exposed to the beginnings of terrorist / gorilla warfare on our own soil. As much as we would like to believe we are safe, ISIS and other Muslim terror groups are proving otherwise.

This past weekend we saw open attacks on the American people from Muslim terrorist.

rahami-wantedA bomb blew up in New York

Several bombs were detonated in New Jersey as well as 4 others discovered, but not detonated.

A Muslim terrorist stabbed nine people in the St Cloud Shopping Mall, all the time screaming “Allah Akbar.”

Any person who is paying attention can clearly see that this is a coordinated attack and finally on Drudge, authorities are agreeing that all these attacks are linked.

What does our current administration do?

Well, Obama’s AG is now vowing to prosecute anyone who speaks out against Islam.

In fact it is beginning to look like Obama as well as Hillary Clinton supports bringing even more muslim “refugees” (terrorists) into the US.

Folks, what we are starting to witness is the ushering in of Sharia law.

Why should we fear Sharia Law?

Well according to the Sharia law…

  • Theft is punishable by cutting off the right hand.
  • Criticizing or denying the Quran or any part of it is punishable by death.
  • Criticizing or denying Muhammad is a prophet is punishable by death.
  • Criticizing or denying Allah is punishable by death.
  • A non-Muslim leading a Muslim away from Islam is punishable by death.
  • A man can marry an infant girl and consummate the marriage when she is 9 years old.
  • Girls’ private parts should be cut (per Muhammad’s words in Book 41, Kitab Al-Adab, Hadith 5251).
  • A man can beat his wife for insubordination.
  • Four male witnesses are required to provide testimony to prove a woman was raped.
  • A woman who has been raped cannot testify in court against her rapist(s).
  • Muslims should lie to non-Muslims to advance Islam.

islam-1And this is just a sample of this barbaric law. Punishments include flogging, stoning, amputation, exile, or execution. Through the eyes of radical Islamists, if you oppose them you are the enemy and they are at war with you.

If we are not for Islam, we are the enemy…period. And if you are an unbeliever / non-follower of Islam, you are to be put to death…period.

I know that I sound like some whacked out tin foil hat wearing person, but as much as I sound like one, the facts support what I am saying.

We are at war with Islam in America and the powers that be are not going to protect us.

So what we need to do is think hard about how we are to defend ourselves against what took place in New York, New Jersey and Minneapolis.

So what do we do?

How do we protect ourselves?

We harden our security both personal, at home and at the workplace.

Protect Yourself With Covert Body Armor

kevlar-hoodieIt seems that the Muslim terrorists weapon of choice seems to be the IED, the improvised explosive device.

This past weekend the bomb that exploded in Chelsea injured twenty-nine people when the device exploded around 8:30 Saturday night. One person was seriously hurt.

Bombs damage in several ways, first there is the explosion that causes a shock wave. The waves travel outward at about 1,600 feet per second (488 meters per second) over hundreds of yards or more depending upon the amount of explosive.

It is this shock wave that hits the body with massive force. The body, particularly the brain is jolted so hard that the body can not withstand the sudden shock and the person dies due to a massive concussion.

Sometimes the shock wave can push a person back and they are thrown into walls and other structures around where the device explodes.

The explosion fragments the container and sends pieces of shrapnel at high speeds outward. If the IED also contained other fragments such as ball bearings, nuts, bolts and pellets, then they also would be thrown outward.

The heat from the explosion can causes fire. These fires in turn can cause secondary fires in the general area.

Finally, the blast wave leaves a partial vacuum, which causes air to rush back in under high pressure. The in-rushing air also pulls in debris and shrapnel.

So how do we protect ourselves?

We need to start taking precautions. As much as I hate to say this and it is painting with a broad brush but if you have Muslims in your area that seem to sympathize with ISIS, CARE, PLO then there might be a risk.

Something that you may consider is start wearing a covert form of body armor. With today’s technology there is level 2 and level 3 Kevlar motorcycle clothing that will help protect against a lot of the dangers that motorcycle riders have to avoid.

Here is what one rider had to say about the Kevlar pants he was wearing…

kevlar-cammo-pants“After a 35mph crash into rocks, I can attest to the strength of the Kevlar. The foot peg caught on inner thigh, tore thru the denim and just left a deep bruise on my inner thigh. With after market pegs using replaceable studs I can assure you without Kevlar it may have been a life threatening result.”

In other words, the Kevlar stopped the foot peg from going though the pants and into his leg all while doing 35 MPH. Note that he did not have any rock or debris penetrating the skin either.

Many Police wear the same clothing to help protect them as well against knife attacks, being cut and other dangers that they face on the street.

I am showing this sort of example because if you are in the area of an IED, this sort of clothing might protect you from any shrapnel or flying debris from the explosion.

Is this perfect and is this what this clothing was made for?

NO… not at all, BUT I would be willing to wear cloths like this and if I am in some sort of situation, odds are that the Kevlar panels that are part of this type of clothing “might” stop shrapnel and debris.

I want to state again that this sort of clothing is also cut resistant and many police wear this sort of clothing to stop knife attacks.

Just think, if some of the people who were in the St Cloud Shopping Mall were wearing some sort of Kevlar clothing; would they have sustained the sort of knife wounds that they received from the terrorist?

kevlar-sleevesI have a pair of Kevlar sleeves that I wear when I am conducting special security tasks. I have personally tested them out to see if they are in fact they cut and puncture resistant and I was impressed, they do what they say they do.

The great thing about Kevlar is that it is also heat / fire resistant. Maybe you have seen waitresses wearing these sort of Kevlar sleeves in dinners. Particularly where they stack 4-5 plates of food on one arm. Those sleeves they are wearing are the same type that many police ear to help guard against knife attacks.

These also will help protect against fragments and debris if you are in the vicinity of an IED.

One final item I want to talk about is a bullet proof back pack. These are being promoted for children to use at school. I have heard a lot about the ProShield backpack and had read some favorable write-ups about it.

It looks just like a normal computer back pack, it even has multimedia ports for your MP3 player and also pockets on the straps to hold your cellphone or other items.

If you do not want to get the back pack they also sell the Level III Kevlar pad that you can possibly slip into your own back pack.

Beefing Up Your Home Security

buddy-barNow I am not going to spend much time on this topic because I have several articles on our website addressing home security, but I do want to point out several items that I HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

First – The Buddy Door Jammer, I own one of these myself and I can attest to the strength that this has. You lock this bar in place and they will have to use a sledge hammer to bust the door down, and even then, it is going to take multiple whacks to get the door open. There are some great videos on the internet showing how tough these are and they literally destroy the door before the Buddy Bar Door Jammer gives up.

Using this properly will make your door almost impenetrable.

Second – 8 Mil Window Film. This is a GREAT product and could possibly save your life. I have done studies on this and if you apply it to both sides of the window, it will prevent bricks, large rocks and in some cases even a single shotgun blast using bird shot or small game shot and even a 22 bullet.

window-filmNow I would not stand in front of the window to test it, but in some of the case studies I have seen, this stuff is worth the money. People will not come in by breaking your window, that is for sure.

The point I am making with this window film is that “IF” an IED were to go off in your neighborhood for what ever reason, I have faith in this window film to stop any debris and shrapnel.

If you are a business owner and you have windows in your office, it might wise of you to also apply the window film there. Businesses are becoming popular targets with domestic terror groups like Black Lives Matter (BLM).

Conclusion

I am a watchman on the wall. It is my job to warn people on things that God has impressed upon me to talk about. Believe me I was not planning on writing on this topic at all. But with all that has taken place this past weekend, God really impressed upon me to write this and possibly help people take an extra step of safety.

As I mentioned before, I have been warning for some time that we will be facing an Islamic driven war here on US soil for some time. Our fighting men and women who have served over in the Middle East have also tried to warn people.

Well, the war is now here and it is a different type of war. We are dealing with cowards who plant IEDs where women and children can be harmed.

We need to do all we can to try to protect ourselves. Then once we have done all, the rest is up to God to take care of us.

AGAIN… I want to stress that the clothes and such that I have recommend are not made with the intent that I am talking about here, BUT there is a very good chance that if you are wearing some sort of Kevlar clothing and you are caught in some sort of IED situation, there is a better chance of survival than if you were not wearing them.

These items are an extra level of security that could quiet possibly save your life.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

Scripture to memorize and encourage you…

1 Timothy 5:8  But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

Luke 22:36  Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

Psalms 144:1 Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight.

  1. We are at war and the attacks are going to get worse. We the People cannot depend on ANY government agency, local, state or fed, to do anything but be reactive to any attacks, hence, it is on our shoulders to provide for our protection. As you stated, IED’s will be the weapon of choice, but…………So far the IED’s used have been composed of gunpowder/black powder. While somewhat destructive and effective, IED’s made from these compounds don’t remotely approach the power and destructiveness of true IED’s made from “explosives!”

    You mention a velocity of 1600 fps for the IED’s that have been used on American soil so far, and I think you are on the optimistic side. Smokeless powder burns and is effective only if tightly contained. Black powder is near the very bottom of the explosive list,and has a very slow detonation rate when contained, approaching 1500 fps. It is relatively slow. On the other hand, high explosives have velocities of 5,000 fps and up. Ammonium Nitrate, such as was used to “reportedly” bring down the Murrah Building in OKC, has a det velocity of about 6500 fps, four times what can be obtained with powders. But it is hard to detonate, hygroscopic(water absorbing) to the max. it WILL NOT cut steel or reinforced concrete! When you get to true high explosives, C3/4, dynamite and TNT and Semtex, all readily available to any terrorist worth their salt, we are looking at explosives that move out at 15-25,000, THOUSAND, feet per second, they are safe to handle, easy to detonate, malleable, and a little goes a very long way!

    We the People in America have not yet seen the tip of the iceberg when it comes to terrorist activities…..We are easy targets, unprepared and basically undefended as far as the safeguards offered by our governmental agencies.

    You have a good article here, but only as regards what are basically low grade explosives. Kevlar, much better than anything else commonly available, WILL NOT protect against “missiles” with velocities over about 2500 fps! Just saying….keep up the good work and articles, you are one of the Watchmen on the Walls!

  2. Your thinking is strictly two-dimensional. Enter the third.

    Before radicals come at you with knives and pistols, the political beast’s EM/RF weaponry will roll down your avenue. The neighbors won’t even know, but you will feel the pain.

    Targeted individuals are the current guinea pigs beta-testing this covert oppression program. It runs out of fusion centers. Take much more seriously the infinite funding and state secrecy of this program than ISIS cells, which are just CIA puppets servicing the media narrative for 1984 perpetual war. Harden your house and wardrobe against EM/RF.

    Kevlar is great against bullets. It’s completely transparent to RF. A whole other suit of clothing is needed. Think fine-mesh chain mail and shielded safe rooms.

  3. Ray, good article, but….the current ied’s being used in America are actually low grade. They use black or smokeless powders, and you’re right about the velocities of the shrapnel, about 1600 fps. And that’s if all is right. Smokeless has to be condined or it just burns, black powder is about as low a grade of explosive as there is. What will happen when the terrorists start using c3/4, Comp b, TNT, Semtex, etc? Even anfo, easy to make and hard to detonate, has a velocity of over 5,000 fps, while the C3/4 and Semtex explosives detonate at over 15,000(thousand) fps! These will really raise hell! And these compounds are readily available, they are easy to use, safe, malleable, waterproof……..We the People are in for it, and all our gov’t agencies, city/county/state ann gov’t, are reactive only.

    When push comes to shove, it will be up to the individual to provide for their defense. Waiting for an official response will lead to death and destruction! You are the Watchman on the Wall, hope you wake some people up!!!

  4. Ray, good article, thanks. Are back in the States (New Braunfels) or still ex-pat? We are refugees from Houston now living in Canyon Lake. Let me know when you will be in this area, would like to invite you to speak to our Church.

    God Bless, stay safe. Bob
