David Cameron promises China ‘growth partnership’
BBC News Article
Currently it may not be such an issue with nations such as the United Kingdom, which will more than likely [unless we are given the vote to opt-out] fall under the protection of a future European superstate. But you can’t help wondering what might take place in the near future... if and when US dominance fails and through policies such as that noted in the article above, China finds that it not only has the ‘military might’, but also a kind of ‘moral right’ [or for better words: An Excuse] to enter sovereign states to ‘protect’ its recently acquired assets.
China is currently the biggest investor in Africa, buying-up vast swathes of agricultural land as well as mineral and energy deposits. Add to this its sky rocketing investment in an ever growing military and even the most ill-informed among us should realise that China is readying itself to ‘land-grab’ if not protect it’s vast foreign assets having been convinced of their future scarcity. All of this whilst the West, driven by materialism and short term greed sells all for gain.
And let us remind ourselves that having already walked into Tibet unopposed, China, that rousing giant turns its envious eyes southwards, even to the ‘minerally’ rich yet sparsely populated continent of Australia, as well as the virgin soils of New Zealand, a potential bread basket for an expanding nation. And not only so, but is currently in dispute with the Philippines, Taiwan, Japan, Vietnam, Malaysia (the list goes on and on) in its effort to secure, or at the very least have an excuse to enter and snatch assets from sovereign nations in the future, stayed temporarily by America’s rapid redeployment of military assets from the European theatre to Asia. Rich pickings that the West’s greedy ‘Industrial Capitalist’ wish to remain within their sphere of influence.
Carving-up the Earth.
Scripture makes it quite clear that by the time Jesus returns the Earth will have been divided into ten regions [or better ‘Kingdoms’], which for a season shall give their power to one man, even Antichrist before that ‘Ten Kingdom Union’ begins to fail.
12 - The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast.
13 - They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast.
In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever.
The borders of these ten kingdoms are currently being thrashed-out, for instance at the time of writing it is unclear whether Ukraine will fall under Russian or European dominance.
Kingdoms such as Europe, Russian, China, North American [Canada, US & Mexico], South American and the Middle East [Islamic Caliphate excluding tiny Israel?] are a certainty, the rest speculative on my part. However I am convinced that Russia and China will be two of the mightiest, so much so that in the end, even Antichrist [Whose own kingdom shall possibly incorporate three of the ‘speculative’ four] will be troubled by their presence.
But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.
And it is because of some-kind of an agreement with either of these two, that until the ‘very’ end when chaos ensues... a feeble Jordan (Edom, Moab and Ammon) is able to escape the marauding armies of Antichrist.
He will also invade the Beautiful Land [Israel]. Many countries will fall, but Edom, Moab and the leaders of Ammon [Edom, Moab & Ammon equal Joran] will be delivered from his hand.
For it is within Jordan, or better a place called Bozrah [Petra] where God shall prepared a place to protect a tiny remnant of Israel from the armies of Antichrist, and this for the duration of ‘The Great tribulation.’ [3½ years]
Revelation 12:6 [plus verses 14 and 16]
And the woman [Israel] fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. [3½ years]
I could ‘rattle-on’ about this for hours but must rest, only to say to those who ‘WATCH’ as Jesus has commanded (against sin as well as ‘watching’ current events), will recognise that what we are seeing globally is the jostling for position of those ten kingdoms. First the mighty land grabbers such as China via threats of military action, Russia following, then Europe and the US forced to respond with military showboating then deceit, sorceries and intrigue to gain the advantage... leaving the rest to band together in an effort to secure their sovereignty, assets and mineral reserves.
Revelation 12:3 informs us that Satan, the ‘god of this age’ currently has ‘heavenly authority’ to reign over the kingdoms of men. [His authoritative crowns are upon his seven heads].
Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads.
Which after been cast down...
The great dragon was hurled down--that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
Will be reduced to using an ‘Earthly authoritative structure’ to rule through Antichrist [His authoritative crowns then upon ten earthly horns/kingdoms] to forward his goals].
The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its [Ten Horns] horns, and on each head a blasphemous name.
Thus aware that he is about to be cast down, Satan is currently building an Earthly authoritative structure from his present, yet temporal heavenly position of advantage, so that when he is eventually cast to the Earth... with his earthly authoritative structure already in place, he might attempt to instigate his ancient survival plan.
Part of our responsibility as Christians is to thwart the building of this earthly kingdom through spiritual means, not that we can prevent it, for Scripture has prophesied its establishment, but that its final state should be weakened and not as Satan might have hoped. For in the days of that kingdom multitudes shall be saved... and the more as we resist Satan today.
For I am convinced that if it were not for ‘The Restrainer’ [The Holy Spirit] working through obedience Christians... Satan’s antichrist should have already been revealed. And with his earthly kingdom having been established before its time... might well have succeeded in securing his deliverance and our demise... but praise be to God that shall not happen, because we the Church have been forewarned and so fight.
13 - Then one of the elders asked me, “These in white robes—who are they, and where did they come from?”
14 - I answered, “Sir, you know.” And he said,
“These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”
Even the fruit of our labour, fruit that shall follow us to Heaven!
