The Prophetic implications of the waking giant of militant China
On November 9 there was a mysterious contrail off the coast of California. The federal government denied that it was a missile contrail, but could not give any details as to what caused the inexplicable event that was caught on film. Since then, there are military experts who speculate that it was a missile launched from a stealth Chinese submarine intended to send the United States a message. Nobody in the government is refuting this theory. The silence is almost deafening. What is not being said is that America's foremost trading partner is an enemy. And the message is: America, we hold nearly a trillion dollars of your debt. Do not mistake our investments as acceptance of an ally.
Each year the Congress requires the Pentagon to give a military assessment of China. It is strongly evident that over the decade since the report is annually issued, there is a direct correlation between the US trade deficit with China and the Chinese military build up. For example, the US-Chinese trade deficit in 2006 was around $350 billion. The Chinese military expenditures estimated by the Pentagon in 2006 were around $125 billion. The Chinese could not build their military at such a pace without the US as a trading partner. The reports have become increasingly concerned with the technology advances China is making, especially for computer espionage and unmanned military drones.
The latest report of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission says missiles fired from the Chinese mainland could destroy five of the six major US air bases in the Far East, adding opposite Taiwan, China's missile force has reached 1,600. The report says that Beijing is also building rockets, submarines and surface fleets to extend her dominance out to the third chain of islands, enabling the People's Liberation Army to strike US carriers and bases as far away as Guam. China also has been at odds with the US over currency. China refuses to benchmark its currency off the world standards. Instead, China is warning that the US is causing a worldwide economic meltdown.
Revelation 9 speaks of the sixth trumpet which loosed the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates that would slay a third part of men. Verse 16 says, "And the number of the army of the horsemen where two hundred thousand thousand." That is 200 million. The drying up of the Euphrates would allow the assembly of armies from Iran, China, Russia, Turkey, Korea and all the places of the East. Standing armies in those places total about 18 million, but their populations could easily conscript 200 million. And today we have North Korea attacking South Korea and China mum on the subject while China is sending messages to America that she intends to contest the global currency and western military.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
