My November 10th blog post presented evidence for my conclusion that a mysterious contrail off the US West Coast was a missile fired by a Chinese submarine as a “warning” to the USA about China’s growing anger at the USA. There is now more evidence to support that conclusion, and this is a very grim development.

The first link below reprints information from an intelligence newsletter that was cited at yesterday. This report cites two military experts who have come to the same conclusion I did: that the mysterious contrail was from a Chinese missile fired from a submarine and that the missile was fired to “send a message to Washington” in a time of growing confrontation between China and the USA. Establishment sources had tried to discount the missile firing explanation with speculation that the contrail was that of an airplane, but the link below references FAA records that no airplanes were flying in that area when the contrail was formed. Further support for the conclusion that China fired this missile was a statement by a retired four-star US general that “There is absolutely no doubt that what was captured on video off the coast of California was a missile launch…” The firing of the Chinese missile just 50 miles off the US West Coast also reveals that the US military is currently not up to the task of detecting and following Chinese missile-firing submarines (a worrisome reality). China has obviously found some glaring weak spots in the USA’s continental defense network.

If you have not read it, I urge you to check out the archives of my blog posts and read my 11-10-10 post on this subject. If you have read my articles, The Two Witnesses and What Ezekiel 38-39 Reveals about a Future World War III, you realize that I do not anticipate the Ezekiel 38-39 Gog-Magog alliance’s attack against the USA, NATO and their allies until after the ministry of the Two Witnesses. I still think that is the most logical application of biblical latter-day prophecies to modern events. However, my assessment is not “scripture,” and Jesus/Yahshua twice warned that his return will come earlier than latter-day believers expect (Matthew 24:21-22 and 25:1-13). The four-star general also warns in the link below that China’s missile launch so close to the USA’s mainland was a “shot across our bow.” In military lingo, a “shot across the bow” refers to a cannon shot fired just ahead of a ship to warn it that it will be attacked if it continues on a certain course.

What China and its allies may now be planning is an economic/monetary war which will destroy the dominance of the US Federal Reserve, Wall Street and the US dollar in global markets. Since China is the USA’s largest creditor nation, they have plenty of options to start such a war (Proverbs 22:7). Just such an attack is prophesied in Revelation 17-18, and China’s very bellicose “shot across the bow” against the USA may indicate such an economic/monetary attack is coming soon. Whenever it does come, the current global money system will fall violently. Revelation 17 prophesies that “seven horns and ten heads” will overthrow Babylon the Great’s global financial system in the latter days, and they will do so with much hatred. Revelation 17:16 warns that the seven heads and ten horns will tear down the global financial system with “hate,” and that they will “make her desolate…eat her flesh and burn her with fire” (this prophecy uses the terms Babylon the Great and the Great Whore interchangeably). Seven heads and ten horns total 17 entities of some kind. We just had a G-20 Summit meeting which was disastrous for Obama and the USA.  The second through sixth links below [2, 3, 4, 5, 6] give information about how the rest of the world is getting really angry at the US Fed and the USA’s economic profligacy. Among the G-20 nations, Japan and the UK usually side with the USA, leaving 17 other nations very angry at the USA. Will these be the seventeen entities identified in prophecy as the “seven heads and ten horns?” Time will tell, but global tensions have now reached a boiling point over the USA’s reckless economic/monetary policies. We could be on the verge of a major financial “attack.” The firing of a Chinese missile off the USA’s west coast may have been the last warning that will be sent to the Fed and Obama.

If you have not done so, I urge you to read my article, Should Christians Prepare for Coming Hard Times?  The advice in that article will prove to be very timely at some point in the future. God is not kidding. He is going to fulfill his latter-day prophecies whether the world and Believers are ready or not. If you do not make some preparations for what God has warned is certain to come, you and your family could suffer greatly when those prophecies are fulfilled. The firing of that missile off the US west coast strongly indicates that something momentous is drawing near. That missile firing was just short of a declaration of imminent war. Let us hope the war will be an economic one and not the fulfillment of the Gog-Magog warfare prophecies of Ezekiel 38-39.
