China flexes muscles to US in South China Sea after promising to ‘open fire’
January 27, 2021 — News.com.au reports: “Two formations of missile-carrying bombers and fighters surged into Taiwan’s airspace at the weekend. Their ‘target’, the USS Theodore Roosevelt and her escort, were captured by satellite as they faced off against the dummy attack run.
Just days after President Joe Biden took up office in the White House, Beijing is ramping up the pressure.
On Friday, it announced its coast guard and warships were authorised to ‘open fire’ on ‘intruders’ within the East and South China Seas.
On Saturday, it sent a ‘strike package’ of powerful bombers within launch range of an approaching US carrier battle group.
On Sunday, a flight of strike fighters followed up with another ‘dress rehearsal’ assault…” (China will become a basic partner with Russia for the rapidly approaching battle of Armageddon – Revelation 16:16. Russia will lead invasion number one – Ezekiel 38 & 39. China will lead invasion number two – Revelation 16:12; Revelation 9:14 – 16. Then all nations will come against Jerusalem for the final invasion at which point Jesus will return to stop the bloodshed and set up his eternal kingdom upon earth – [He gathers] all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken… Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south – Zechariah 14:2 – 4. Then Psalm 2:6 occurs as God the Father says: …I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion [Jerusalem]. See the next four reports)
Containing China is ‘mission impossible’, Beijing warns Biden
January 29, 2021 — SpaceWar.com reports: “Any attempt to contain China is ‘mission impossible’, the country’s defence ministry warned the US on Thursday, as the Biden administration works to shore up its Asian alliances against Beijing.
Military tensions between the two superpowers worsened under former US President Donald Trump, who adopted an aggressive stance on regional flashpoints such as Taiwan and the South China Sea.
China at the same time poured billions into revamping its military, in line with President Xi Jinping’s ambitions to transform the People’s Liberation Army into a fully modernised, ‘world-class’ fighting force by 2050.
‘The facts show that to contain China is mission impossible, and will only end up in shooting yourself in the foot,’ warned defence ministry spokesman Wu Qian on Thursday…”
Xi Jinping Orders Chinese Army to Prepare for War ‘at Any Second’
January 6, 2021 — Breitbart.com reports: “Chinese dictator Xi Jinping on Monday issued orders to the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) to prepare to ‘act at any second’ and maintain ‘full-time combat readiness,’ the South China Morning Post (SCMP) reported Tuesday.
Xi previously tightened his personal control of the PLA, using his position as chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC) to appoint loyal officers and clean out suspect personnel under the guise of an anti-corruption campaign.
State news agency Xinhua described the orders as part of an effort to tighten Chinese Communist Party (CCP) control of the nation’s military and to prepare it for future conflicts…”
China’s Xi warns Davos World Economic Forum against ‘new Cold War’
January 26, 2021 — SpaceWar.com reports: “Chinese President Xi Jinping warned global leaders at an all-virtual Davos forum Monday against starting a ‘new Cold War’, and urged global unity in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.
Having largely curbed the spread of the pandemic within its borders, Xi wants to position China as a key player in a new multilateral world order as the US remains crippled by the pandemic.
‘To build small cliques or start a new Cold War, to reject, threaten or intimidate others… will only push the world into division,’ said Xi in a likely veiled attack on US President Joe Biden’s plans to revitalise global alliances to counter China’s growing influence.
In a swipe at moves targeting China launched by the previous US administration under President Donald Trump, Xi said confrontation ‘will always end up harming every nation’s interests and sacrificing people’s welfare’…”
Undeterred by US Sanctions, China Expected to Continue Development in Disputed Asian Sea
January 19, 2021 — Voice of America News reports: “U.S. curbs against Chinese officials and companies suspected of helping Beijing extend its reach in a disputed, resource-rich Asian sea will do little to reduce China’s maritime influence and could indirectly increase it, analysts believe.
The government of outgoing U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday announced a ban on travel to the United States by officials in the military, the ruling Communist Party and major state-owned enterprises. Washington believes they have used coercion on countries with claims to the 3.5 million-square-kilometer South China Sea…”
Chinese Communist Party Bans Members from Opinions ‘Inconsistent’ with the Party
January 8, 2021 — Breitbart.com reports: “The Communist Party of China (CPC) revised restrictions on what its members are allowed to say in public in a set of regulations published on Monday, the South China Morning Post (SCMP) reported.
‘A member of the party must not publicly express opinions that are inconsistent with decisions made by the central leadership,’ reads Article 16 of the revised regulations, which concerns safeguarding the rights of the CPC’s 92 million members.
The regulation’s wording was altered from a similar clause banning the public expression of opinions that are the ‘opposite of’ the party leadership’s decisions.
‘Article 11 of the new rules stipulates that while party members are entitled to report misconduct by other members, including those who hold a higher rank, they must not disseminate such information at will and must not do so on the internet,’ according to the Hong Kong-based newspaper…” (In 2017 China elevated the stature of President Xi Jinping putting him on par with Chairman Mao Zedong who founded the People’s Republic of China in 1949, making him in essence emperor for life, he can stay in power as long as his health allows. In November of 2017 China told Christians to replace images of Jesus with images of President Jinping in an effort to transform believers in religion into believers of the Communist Party of China. President Jinping should read the book of Daniel to see what happened to a king who elevated himself: The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty? While the word was in the king’s mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee. And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will. The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles’ feathers, and his nails like birds’ claws. And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation: And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou? – Daniel 4:30-35.)
