Two bomb blasts went off at the finish line of the famous Boston Marathons:

Two huge explosions rocked the Boston Marathon finish line at Copley Square just before 3 p.m. today, apparently causing numerous casualties, some possible with traumatic injuries on streets crowded with runners, spectators and post-race partiers, while a top city official said police were finding “more devices.” (Boston Herald)

(Reuters) – Two explosions hit the Boston Marathon as runners crossed the finish line on Monday, killing at least two people and injuring 23 on a day when tens of thousands of people pack the streets to watch one of the world’s best known marathons.

Boston police also reported another explosion at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, which is three miles from the marathon’s finishing line.

“We are not certain that these incidents are related, but we are treating them as if they are,” Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis told a news conference…

“Blood everywhere, victims carried out on stretchers. I saw someone lose their leg, people are crying,” the Boston Globe’s Steve Silva reported from the scene, the Globe said on Twitter.  http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/04/15/us-athletics-marathon-boston-blast-idUSBRE93E0ZF20130415

(CBS/AP) – The Boston Police Commissioner told reporters that in addition to two explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, a third explosion occurred at the city’s JFK Library, but that it’s not clear if it”s connected to the other detonations. CBS News is reporting that library sources say the incident there may have been a mechanical fire. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504083_162-57579695-504083/boston-marathon-explosion-update-police-commissioner-cites-possible-third-bomb-blast-calls-event-ongoing/

BOSTON — Two bombs ripped through the crowd at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, killing two people and injuring dozens in what a White House official said would be handled as an “act of terror.” http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/chi-boston-marathon-explosion-20130415,0,641755.story

This is troubling and these type of terrorist incidents are horrifying.

Over in the UK, they are also concerned about having something similar happening there:

LONDON (AP) — British police are reviewing security plans for Sunday’s London Marathon, the next major international marathon, because of the bombs that killed two people at the race in Boston. But there is no known specific or credible threat against the British race at the moment, a security official said.

The London Marathon is a hugely popular race. Last year, some 37,500 athletes competed, with many more watching the springtime event.

London has long been considered a top target for international terrorists, with the government saying the threat level is “substantial.”  http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5j_bTJ-VHRa0Xz_-hPs8PFuE4smTQ?docId=7e2ceed85dc7451eae721a154fc95750

Jesus taught about “troubles” as part of the ‘beginning of sorrows’ (Mark 13:8), which happen prior to the start of the Great Tribulation (Matthew 24:21), and the USA is not exempt from them.  Nor will it be exempted from the Great Tribulation which is also known as “the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world” (Revelation 3:10).

Terrors are prophesied (cf. Leviticus 26:14).  But, that does not excuse those that do such acts (Matthew 18:7).

If those responsible for this claim to be Christian, Jewish, or Islamic, then they really do not understand God’s law or what life is really supposed to be about.

Anglo – America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel Are the Americans, Canadians, English, Scottish, Welsh, Australians, Anglo (non-Dutch) Southern Africans, and New Zealanders descendants of Joseph?

Will God punish the U.S.A., Canada, United Kingdom, and other Anglo nations? Why might God allow them to be punished first?
The Ten Commandments Reflect Love, Breaking them is Evil Some feel that the ten commandments are a burden. Is that what Jesus, Paul, Peter, James, and John taught?
