Another bombing in Pakistan!

The Black Flag of Jihad


There was another bombing in Pakistan:

September 29, 2013

Peshawar, Pakistan (CNN)At least 40 people were killed and about 100 were wounded after a bomb exploded at a bazaar in Peshawar, officials at a Pakistani hospital said…

Peshawar, the capital of Pakistan’s volatile Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, has endured a violent week.

On Monday, 81 people were killed in a suicide bombing at a Protestant church in one of the deadliest attacks ever on the Christian community in Pakistan.

A splinter group of the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility, saying the attack was in response to U.S. drone strikes in tribal areas.

And on Friday, at least 17 people were killed and more than 30 others wounded in an explosion that ripped through a bus carrying government employees…

No group immediately claimed responsibility for Sunday’s attack at the bazaar. The Pakistani Taliban decried the loss of innocent life but at the same time struck a defiant note. “We are targeting the government machinery and the law enforcement agencies but not general public,” said spokesman Shaidullah Shaid.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is rife with Islamic extremists and has been the site of clashes between Pakistani security forces and militants.

September 29, 2013…

Pakistani authorities say the bomb exploded Sunday during morning rush hours in Pesahawar’s oldest, Qissa Khawani, bazaar and the blast inflicted widespread destruction.

The bloodshed took place not far from the All Saints Church, where last Sunday a pair of suicide bombers struck in a crowd of worshipers.  The carnage left at least 85 members of the country’s minority Christian community dead, nearly half of them women and children.

The church was repaired and reopened under extremely tight security on Sunday, offering special services and prayers for victims of the blast.  A local journalist, Sabookh Syed, says he was witnessing the rituals when the market blast took place nearby.

He tells VOA that “the powerful blast also shook the church building, causing a scramble among Christian worshipers while terrified women and children began crying and raised their hands towards the sky”.

On Friday, a bomb exploded in a crowded bus while it was travelling through the outskirts of Peshawar, carrying government employees to their homes. That attack killed 19 people and wounded dozens more.
Authorities blame Taliban extremists, who are waging a bloody insurgency in Pakistan, for  Sunday’s bombing and previous “acts of terrorism”.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has promised to engage the Islamist militants in peace talks to try to end the bloodshed, but many believe the latest violence has apparently left little room for his government to pursue a negotiated settlement.

The Pakistani prime minister “strongly condemned” Sunday’s bomb blast in Peshawar.  In a written statement, Sharif says “those involved in the killing of innocent people are devoid of humanity and all religions.”

We in the Continuing Church of God are opposed to violence and terrorism.  It is wrong for anyone in this age to bomb churches, marketplaces, etc.

While because of recent changes in Egypt (the removal of its Muslim Brotherhood leadership), Tunisia (losing much of its Muslim Brotherhood leadership), Syria (the USA decided against bombing) and Iran (a new president that has toned down some of Iran’s rhetoric) it appears that Islamist groups are losing ground, the reality is that a confederation of nations that are currently predominantly Islamic will still one day form per Daniel 11:40-43 and Ezekiel 30:1-9.  And presuming that this confederation has Islamist leadership, neither it nor the confederation will end up faring well per those same scriptures.

What the Islamists seem to want will end in disaster.  And causing disasters to try to make this happen is wrong.

The Future King of the South is Rising Does the Bible teach that there will be a future King of the South in Daniel 11? Is this kingdom rising up now? Did the old Worldwide Church of God (WCG) teach that there would be another one? And who is the King of the South? How will this involve Egypt? Is the final King of the South some type of Arab-Muslim confederation? Can Iran be involved? Is there a group that seems to be supporting the goals of the King of the South? Has the Obama Administration supported the rise of this power? This sermon video answers those questions.
The Muslim Brotherhood and the Rise of the King of the South The Bible tells of the formation of a power of nations that are in the Middle East and North Africa that are part of the final “King of the South” (Daniel 11:40-43) The Muslim Brotherhood wishes to have an Islamic empire with basically the same nations. This YouTube video explains what to expect from such a confederation.
Is There A Future King of the South? Some no longer believe there needs to be. Might Egypt, Islam, Iran, Arabs, or Ethiopia be involved? Might this King be called the Mahdi? What does the Bible say?
