CHINA & The Kings From The East

The Massive Military Buildup dominates the headlines in recent years !

            1.  China fires a barrage of reported ‘carrier-killer’ missiles into the South China Sea as US-China tensions flare Aug27, 2020

            2. China—Massive Nuclear Missile Base, July 27, 2021

            3. China building third missile field for hundreds of new ICBMs Aug12, 2021

            4. China reveals new supersonic drone Sep19, 2019

            6. China launches world’s fastest quantum computers Oct 28, 2021 .

BELOW: The rise of End Time global kingdoms, including the Kings From The East (Rev 16:12)

                                                                                                                                                                        & the demonic powers behind them (Rev 16:13-14)

#7 above in 2021 caught our Defense & Security Departments “by surprise”. The hypersonic missile is so technologically advanced it “bobs & weaves” like a boxer ducking punches. Admittedly, America has no protection against it.


RIGHT: The EUPHRATES & 4 DEMONS

"Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates...And the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released, so that they might kill a third of mankind”

(today= 2.7 bl. people) Rev 9:14-15

 

The Euphrates River is where Babylon is, & plays a prominent role in End Time events.

When the airport official sees a person coming through security, they only see the person as a traveler. But then the airport scanner sees through their clothes and reveals in an Xray the otherwise invisible—a weapon or bomb, etc.— . So now the true person is seen when the visible and invisible are both open to the security-official’s eyes— the person has the demonic spirit of a terrorist!

That is why the following passages (BELOW) show military forces with “heads of lions” & “like locusts & serpents”.

 John the Apostle who recorded these God-given visions in the Book of Revelation saw the physical and the demonic merged into one, and described them as one. “Weird & creepy”. Yet they are just as he saw their true reality—the visible-natural & the invisible-demonic.




“And this is how I saw in the vision the horses and those who sat on them:


…the heads of the horses are like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths proceed fire and smoke and brimstone.” Rev 9:17

            

#1 Right—how we see the

                                                visible army.


                But look below at #2...

 

RIGHT #2 —John saw the

                                            demonic army.


NOTE: Keep in mind that the 5th & 6th Trumpets (demonic-locusts armies & 200-ml-man army crossing the Euphrates) are very closely related, being among the last 3 “Woe” judgments.


“And out of the smoke came forth locusts... And the appearance …[of] their faces were like the faces of men... the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots, of many horses rushing to battle.” (Rev 9:3-9)

 


#3 Right—Is this what John sees?

Helicopter war machines with “wings” and “faces (highlighted) of men”.

 

“For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails; for their tails are like serpents and have heads; and with them they do harm.” (Rev 9:1-19)

 

#4 Right—Is John seeing something akin to a tail-torching drone?

This is a Chinese weapon.

             It is important we call speculation by its name—but it is eerily similar to John’s vision.

 

“A third of mankind was killed by these three plagues, by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone, which proceeded out of their mouths.” (Rev 9:18)


“And the sixth angel poured out his bowl upon the great river, the Euphrates; and its water was dried up, that the way might be prepared for the kings from the east.” (Rev 16:12)

#5 Right—China parading its new & monstrous DF-17 Hypersonic Missiles, which fire from the “mouths” of the launchers (“horses” with “faces of men” riding them.


NOTE: The “1949” in the Chinese military parade on the RIGHT signifies the year “Red China” was born, the year after the State Of Israel was born.


#6 RIGHT: Demonic-locust-like

                                    Chinese Military

Revelation 16:12-16 —"the Kings From The East" & Revelation chapter 9 are implicitly connected by their mutual connection to "the great river Euphrates (Rev 9:14 & 16:12)—this explains a lot about the similarity of the demon-infested armies from the East mentioned in both passages.

"…They have as king over them, the angel of the abyss; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in the Greek he has the name Apollyon." (Rev 9:11)

NOTE: Demonic indeed, with names!

 

#7 Right

It won’t be Xi Jinping who rules but rather...


“And the LORD will be king over all the earth; in that day the LORD will be the only one,  and His name the only one.” Zec 14:9


ANOTHER "SPECULATION", but one laced with some "colorful" facts—the billboard & the uniform colors match those of Rev 9:17...

HOPE: Always remember,

as prophesy reveals the dark & wicked days ahead, they disappear into nothingness forevermore when Christ Returns

                                            to this earth in Glory


(#8 Right)

Revelation is FRAMED by the GOSPEL—


Five (5) verses into chapter 1
we read…

“To Him who loves us, and released

us from our sins by His blood”

Five (5) verses from the end of the book we read…

“ let the one who wishes take

the water of life without cost”

 

Our assurance in Christ

& His Gospel

overrides everything else

in Revelation.


The Book of Revelation

should not scare you

unless...

You are not Saved.

Here's how to be

SAVED IN CHRIST
