I just watched a video clip taken from Ground Zero where two bombs exploded yesterday in a crowd of cheering spectators just as Marathon runners were crossing the finish line in Boston. What a nightmare! As of this moment, the FBI have few clues as to the culprit(s).
Whoever planted those bombs was heartless. Whatever point he/she/they were trying to make, there is no excuse for killing the innocent, including an 8-year-old boy the same age as my son, Seth. I shake my head in disbelief and horror.
One thing I know. Whoever planted those bombs was supernaturally worked by an unseen, ruthless intelligence. The FBI may never identify him, but we can. Jesus Christ pinpointed him when He stated about a fallen angel named Lucifer, "He was a murderer from the beginning" (John 8:44). Unfortunately, the Devil isn't dead yet, but someday he will meet his demise. "I will bring you to ashes on the earth," promises God Almighty, "in the sight of all who behold you ... you shall be a terror, and never shall you be any more" (Ezekiel 28:18,19, emphasis added).
The true reason why God will finally bring about "the end of the world" (see Matthew 28:20) is to initiate a new beginning where death, murder, pain and sorrow are forever gone (read 2 Peter 3:10-14 and Revelation 21:1-4).
May that Day come soon!
