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).
“Within the past century man has proven his inhumanity by his willingness to destroy his fellow man.”
-Jim Bakker in “Prosperity and the Coming Apocalypse”
Seven people were killed and thirteen injured when a homicide bomber attacked a governor’s compound in western Afghanistan.
The attack in Farah province also resulted in the deaths of four of the attackers. The first blew himself up at the gate and others tried to fight their way through the gate into the compound.
The battle lasted nearly an hour.
Mohammad Yunos Rasuli, Farah Deputy Governor, told the BBC the attackers were dressed as police and that he killed two of the attackers before being wounded himself.
Rasuli said that the attackers didn’t target only the government officials but everyone including an “office caretaker, a cleaner and others.”
Last month, two Taliban fighters attempted a similar style attack in Kandahar which led to gun battle lasting over half an hour.
