Rev 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).
“I believe the four horses of Revelation are already out of the barn; they are beginning to ride in our generation.”
-Jim Bakker in “Prosperity and the Coming Apocalypse”
A former Taliban minister who had been a go-between in potential peace talks was assassinated as he headed toward a meeting with the government about reconciliation.
Mullah Arsaia Rahmani had been living in Kabul under protection from the Afghan Intelligence Service. He died when a gunman approached his car and opened fire. The assassin escaped according to another member of the Council.
“His assassination is a big loss,” Muallawi Shaflullah Nuristani told the New York Times. “It will affect the peace process because he played an important role in mediating the peace talks and was a trusted person among the Taliban.”
Taliban officials denied they were responsible for the killing.
There is no word if other people were killed in the attacks.
