China’s Defense Minister, General Liang Guanglie, stated : “In the coming five years, our military will push forward preparations for military conflict in every strategic direction (emphasis added).” This statement is a bellicose warning against every nation in China’s region of the world, if not every nation in all parts of the world. Indeed, the last paragraph of the article reports that General Liang stated that China intends to “speed up” its already rapid military modernization programs. China’s new ballistic missile which is designed to “sink aircraft carriers from afar” is specifically cited in the article as this weapon will “reorder the balance of power” in the Pacific region to the detriment of the USA.
The article notes that India and Japan are nations among those most threatened by China, with India going so far as to decline to affirm its previous “One China” policy in a key statement. India and China are also having greater tensions over Kashmir and India is worried about China’s growing alliance with Pakistan, another key enemy of India. India has the right to feel threatened not only by China, but it also has the right to feel increasingly encircled by a growing Chinese-Pakistani alliance. Indeed, the article adds that China’s growing militarism “has alarmed many neighbors.” The deterioration in American-Chinese relations is also cited.
China’s Defense Minister has served notice of China’s hostility toward all its neighbor nations, all of which are feeling increasingly threatened by China. Not only does this alarm other Pacific nations, it motivates them to form an anti-Chinese alliance aligned with the USA and NATO against China. A previous post to this blog documented that even Vietnam, an old enemy of the USA, conducted major joint naval exercises with the USA as the Vietnamese may be turning to the USA as an ally because China is seen as a greater danger. This was prophesied in Ezekiel 38. Ezekiel 38:13 prophesied that an Asian alliance of “Sheba and Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof” will form their own alliance which will not be aligned with China and which will not participate in the prophesied attack of Russia, China, Iran, et al. (The Gog-Magog alliance) against the USA and the West in a future year. Evidence that the nations mentioned in Ezekiel 38:13 are India, Japan and the “young tiger” nations of the Pacific Rim is found in my article, Japan’s Role in Bible Prophecy, and also in my article, What Ezekiel 38-39 Reveals about a Future World War III. The warlike threats of China’s Defense Minister are driving India, Japan and the “young tiger” nations of South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore, perhaps even Vietnam and other Asian nations into a common alliance to protect themselves against China’s warlike intent and preparations. None of these nations wish to be slaves to China so they have every reason to unite their power to deter Chinese actions against them.
Did you hear about China’s warlike declaration in the American establishment media? Most likely not as the American media seems to be mostly hiding relevant news from the American people instead of informing them about it. It is ever-clearer that China is preparing to fight a wide-ranging World War III. Its own Defense Minister has said China is preparing to fight “in all directions.” China is preparing for war even as Adolf Hitler and the Nazis were preparing for war in the 1930s. Most nations were in denial that Hitler really meant to go to war. As China openly prepares for war now, most nations (especially the USA and NATO) seem to be in denial that China has its gunsights on the USA and its allies. Nations like Australia and New Zealand, who are much closer to China, better teach their citizens how to shoot guns and make sure they have ample supplies of weapons and bullets. Ignoring the danger from China will cause these two Israelite nations of the tribe of Ephraim (see my books, articles and audio messages for abundant evidence supporting this assertion) to become easy prey for China when its launches the war it openly states it is preparing for.
Perhaps even Russia, China’s strategic ally, ought to be concerned about China’s statement that it is preparing to go to war in “all strategic directions.” Russia is China’s strategic ally, but China’s Defense minister did not exempt Russia from his warlike statement that China is preparing to go to war in all directions. Ezekiel 38 also has a warning for Russia and all of China’s allies in verse 21. At some point in World War III, which Ezekiel 38 warns will be started by a surprise attack by Russia, China, Iran and their allies against the West and all their global allies, the nations in the Gog-Magog alliance will turn on each other and their armies will make war upon their erstwhile allies. The hubristic declaration by China’s Defense Minister that China is preparing to make war in all directions may be an omen re: which nation in the Gog-Magog alliance will be the one which first turns its guns (and perhaps its nanotechnology weapons—see previous posts on this topic) on its strategic allies.
I think many leaders in the Pentagon see the grave military danger posed by China, but I believe the White House and US State Department are trying to get them to downplay and ignore the threat. That policy of denial and appeasement, of course, will only make war come more quickly. British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain tried the policy of denial and appeasement against Adolf Hitler to prevent war. How well did that work for him? The West’s current policy of denial and appeasement toward China is likely to have the same result today as Chamberlain’s policy did in the 1930s—it hastened the advent of a world war.
We live in dangerous times. The Bible prophesied that things are going to get a lot worse before Jesus Christ’s return puts an end to World War III and begins a millennial age of peace under his rule (Revelation 19:11-20:4). I hope you are making spiritual and physical preparations for the times the Bible prophesies are sure to come.
China’s warlike intentions are now out in the open! So is the fact that Ezekiel 38-39 is perhaps the single-most important and detailed latter-day prophecy in the Bible about the events that will occur in World War III.
