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).
“Hardly a day goes by when our senses are not bludgeoned by some new outbreak of terrorism in the Middle East. Despite our best efforts at making and keeping the peace, political, economic, and religious tensions often lead to unrest, violence, and riots.”
-Jim Bakker in “Prosperity and the Coming Apocalypse”
A homicide bomber has killed one policeman in an attack on a police station in central Turkey.
Two attackers tried to ram a car into the Kayseri police station and were killed in the terror attack. A bomb inside the car detonated shortly after the car crashed following a clash with security officers.
The terrorists ran through a police checkpoint 55 miles away from Kayseri earlier in the morning.
Sixteen civilians and another police officer were injured in the assault. Some of the wounded included children of officers living in nearby police lodging. Officers could not determine if the bomb was detonated intentionally or as a result of the gunfire.
No claim has been made to the bombing but police were alluding to the separatist Kurdish PKK movement as the likely group behind the assault.
