JD: China is indeed in this world today a very major power but in Bible prophecy they will be the major power in the last maybe six months of the seven year Tribulation period. The Chinese are now watching the western Russian competition. Are they going to watch Russia and the United States tare each other up and then come to power?
KT: You know this is the old great power gain. We have been playing it for the past two generations with the Russians and the Chinese pinning one against the other. The Chinese are doing exactly the same thing. When they were in competition with Russia in the 60s and the 70s they needed the United States on their side to pin down the Soviet Union. Now that that conflict is over they are using Russia to pin us down. So yes they are watching what Russia is doing. They are trying to take advantage of Russia’s weaknesses in Eurasia, their weaknesses in the caucuses in places like the Republic of Georgia. They are expanding their belt in road initiative to gain access to Western Europe and the Russian’s are letting them do this.
There’s no longer an open competition between Russia and China. There is a pretty much of a cooperation between the two. But there’s no doubt in my mind that China is the ascendent power and Russia is on the decline. Russia is going along with this creeping Chinese expansionism because it is to their financial benefit and temporarily at least to their political benefit against the west. China offers them an out, an escape valve from western sanctions and that is critical to keeping the Russian economy alive.
JD: Ken Timmerman with the details on how Russia and China have a plan to defeat the United States.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
At one time in the past China was using the United States to help Beijing to get the advantage over Russia. Now China and Russia are partners in their efforts to bring down America. This present scenario is actually a page out of the prophetic passages of the Bible. Both Russia and China will play a key role in the events of the Tribulation period, that seven year period of time between the Rapture and the return of Jesus Christ.
Russia is a leader of an alignment of nations to destroy Israel in the first half of the Tribulation period, that’s Ezekiel 38. China will be the leader of the nations at the end of the Tribulation period, that’s Revelation 16:12. The United States by the way is not mentioned in Bible prophecy for the last days. The stage is indeed set for these prophecies to be fulfilled.
