Can a threatening text message be recognized as such, by the law?

If someone texts me "If I see you around, I will have you taken care of", will it be considered a threat?

Whether any message constitutes a threat is probably a matter of circumstance and situation. Depending on the context, it is possible that statement could be seen as a threat. 

If you feel you are being threatened, please call the police immediately.
