Police find bomb in London, open terrorism probe
LONDON (Reuters) - British police defused a car bomb in central London on Friday and said the device made up of petrol, gas cylinders and nails could have caused significant loss of life, anti-terrorism authorities said.
DEBKAfile’s counter-terror sources report the smoke indicates that the gasoline packed in the device may have begun to ignite and the suicide bomber at the wheel drove erratically, as a witness recounted, in order reach his target before it exploded. Alternatively, he may have crashed into the bins outside the nightclub hoping to detonate the car. When nothing happened, he ran.
The modus operandi recalls suicide car bombings by al Qaeda in Iraq and Middle East terrorist groups. It was timed to explode on Gordon Brown’s first day as UK prime minister and located to cause maximum casualties, an apparent warning that Tony Blair’s departure does not change the terrorist threat to Britain.Five US soldiers killed in roadside bomb ambush on their patrol in S.

We're not fighting flesh and blood, we're fighting the Lion-Bear-Leopard beast of Daniel 7, as a revived beast in Revelation 13, and Revelation 16. Daniel tells us the nations that initiate the final battle of Armageddon are Iraq (Babylon represented by the Lion), Iran (Medo-Persia represented by the bear), and Turkey, Syria and the former Soviet Republics (Alexander the Great's territory represented by the Leopard). Read Ellis Skolfield's book The False Prophet for more details.
Notice that the Second coming of Jesus doesn't happen until Revelation 16:15, and that the LBL beast gathers the world to Armageddon up to His one-and-only second coming for his people described in that verse. The world is NOW being gathered around Israel for that battle. We are witnesses to that gathering, which is also described in Ezekiel 38 and Zechariah 12. You just need to be aware of current events to see the gathering taking place.
The Day of the Lord is coming. We could be the last generation on this earth - what a possibility!
