Chinese Challenge and Prophetic Progression  :: By Terry James


China is shaping up to become the entity prophetically designated the king of the “kings of the east.”

The leadership of the CCP hasn’t been asleep while the Biden administration has bumbled along in some instances and planned badly in others. Or, perhaps as some might put it, it is all a disguised blueprint that the so-called New World Order has concocted; i.e., the globalists are pulling strings of this president like the strings many generations ago saw as they watched Howdy Doody go through his antics. Only we can’t see the strings. But the antics are certainly manifesting while this administration dances to the globalists’ tune.

Again, the Chinese CCP schemers haven’t been oblivious to the Biden bumbling–or whatever is at the heart of the apparent downward spiral.

If the one-world crowd expects to outwit the CCP in their plans to dominate their part of the planet, and then expand everywhere else, they had better hurry and implement their brilliant blueprint to save the earth.

The Chinese communists are, themselves, pulling the puppet strings in consort with Vladimir Putin. Things aren’t looking so good, for example, in the matter of the globalists’ plans to continue to rule the world of finance. The communist cabal comprised of the old Soviet oligarchs and the more modernistic and inscrutable Chinese monetary masters seem to be outwitting those of the West who want to continue to rule the fiscal world through the petro dollar.

The Chinese, long known for their patience in their movement toward conquering the world, are seeing weakness they apparently can’t resist— weakness in an America under Mr. Biden, whose government is seen dancing around like that old Howdy Doody puppet of all those years ago.

The CCP has made its own self-perceived strength felt in letting its intentions with regard to Taiwan be known.

It has shown its contempt for American power—or lack thereof—by issuing a direct order in the form of a threat. The following excerpt encapsulates that Sino contempt for apparent US haplessness.

BEIJING (Reuters) -China warned on Thursday it would take strong measures if U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan and said such a visit would severely impact Chinese-U.S. relations, following media reports she would go next week.

China considers democratically ruled Taiwan its own territory and the subject is a constant source of friction between Beijing and Washington, especially given strong U.S. military and political support for the island.

The possible visit has not been confirmed by Pelosi’s office or Taiwan’s government, but some Japanese and Taiwanese media reported it would take place after she visits Japan this weekend…

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Fijian told reporters that Beijing firmly opposed all forms of official interactions between the United States and Taiwan, and Washington should cancel the trip.

“If the United States insists on having its own way, China will take strong measures in response to defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity. All possible consequences that arise from this will completely be borne by the U.S. side,” he added, without giving details.

Since this report, Speaker Pelosi has suddenly come down with COVID, or something other, it is speculated. The trip is off and the report is that she is ill and can’t make it.

Perhaps she was at the white-tie Gridiron Dinner in Washington, DC, the other day. That was apparently a COVID spreader, as many reportedly came down with the virus following the get-together. At any rate, following the Chinese directive, the trip was called off.

My own thinking continues to be that if China is that future king of the kings of the east (Revelation chapters 9 and 16), they will soon launch an assault on their Taiwanese neighbor. Thus will be due to the opportunity that has arisen because of America’s weakness. If they want to launch such an assault, they wouldn’t want the complication of having a US official of such status in the way of the military power that would be necessary to do the job on Taiwan like Mr. Putin is having such a time doing on Ukraine. The warning against Ms. Pelosi making the trip thus has been issued.

If China is the leader of that massive force from east of the Euphrates, they will–as I’ve expressed before—have to bring within their hegemony all of the Far East, including Japan, Taiwan, and the like, which are tied to the Western powers.

While we watch all of the power spheres shaping for the fulfillment of Bible prophecy, believers should be alerted that the time of Christ’s call to the Church is almost certainly near indeed. Pastors across the nation and world should be issuing such alerts. We are not to look for the kings of the east to fulfill their dastardly role. We should be looking for the King of all kings.

Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ. (Titus 2:13)
