China becoming ‘evil empire,” warns US ex-VP Pence
July 15, 2021 — SinoDaily.com reports: “Former US vice president Mike Pence warned Wednesday that China was on its way to becoming an ‘evil empire’ posing a greater threat to America than the Cold War-era Soviet Union.
Former president Donald Trump’s deputy, believed to be mulling his own 2024 White House bid, also urged current occupant Joe Biden to confront China more forcefully on multiple fronts including the origin of the coronavirus and the Asian giant’s ‘neocolonialism.’
‘The Chinese Communist Party is the greatest threat to our prosperity, security and values on the face of the Earth,’ Pence said during a speech at the Heritage Foundation think tank.
‘China may not yet be an evil empire, but it’s working hard every day to become one,’ he added…” (II Timothy 3:1 – This know also, that in the last days perilous [dangerous] times shall come. Soon the kings of the East [Orient] will move into the Middle East – the second invasion of Israel after Russia’s defeat. America will be involved against North Korea as part of “Tarshish” – Ezekiel 38:16.)
Xi Jinping Vows to Bash the Heads of ‘Foreign Bullies,’ ‘Utterly Defeat’ Taiwan
July 2, 2021 — Breitbart.com reports: “Communist dictator Xi Jinping delivered a violent hour-long speech on Thursday to celebrate the 100th anniversary of China’s Communist Party, vowing that anyone seeking to liberate the Chinese people would have their ‘heads bashed bloody’ and threatening sovereign Taiwan with ‘reunification.’
Under Xi’s rule, Chinese officials have organized hundreds of events nationwide to celebrate the anniversary and published attempts at pop culture homages to the Party, like a 15-minute hip-hop song featuring 100 communist rappers. Officials do not appear to be implementing any social distancing protocol or requiring masks for attendees despite the tight quarters in stadiums and other public venues that people appear to be filling. China is the origin nation of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, has struggled to convince citizens to receive coronavirus vaccine doses, and continues to endure waves of case surges in its major cities that have resulted in significant disturbances to public life…” (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 three reports.)
Japan Talks of Defending Taiwan Against China Aggression
July 27, 2021 — Voice of America News reports: “Although Japan has in recent months hinted it would aid in any Taiwanese defense against China, it would only help defend the island from Chinese attack if called on by the U.S. or if the conflict affected outlying islands under Japanese control, analysts say.
China claims sovereignty over Taiwan and has not ruled out the use of force to bring the island under its control.
Tokyo would join a U.S.-led defense of Taiwan because of its historical alliance with Washington, including the 70-year-old Japan-U.S. Security Treaty, experts say, or if China struck in a way that threatened Japan’s islets, such as Yonaguni, that are near Taiwan’s east coast…”

China threatens to nuke Japan over Taiwan in video played on CCP-sanctioned channel
July 20, 2021 — FoxNews.com reports: “The Chinese Communist Party aired a video in which it warned Japan of a nuclear response and ‘full-scale war’ if the island nation interferes in China’s handling of Taiwan.
The video, which appeared on a channel approved by the CCP, singles out Japan as the one exception to China’s policy to not use nuclear weapons against non-nuclear powers.
‘We will use nuclear bombs first,’ the video said. ‘We will use nuclear bombs continuously. We will do this until Japan declares unconditional surrender for the second time.’…” (Nuclear war is part of the battle of the ages – see Revelation 9:18. Other prophesied texts are predicted in Psalm 97:3; Isaiah 66:15; Ezekiel 20:47: …Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will kindle a fire in thee, and it shall devour every green tree in thee, and every dry tree: the flaming flame shall not be quenched… Study also Zephaniah 1:8; Malachi 4:1; and Revelation 8:7.

Report that China building new ICBM silos ‘concerning’
July 2, 2021 — SpaceWar.com reports: “The United States expressed concern on Thursday over a report that China is building more than 100 new silos for intercontinental ballistic missiles.
The Washington Post, citing a study of commercial satellite images by a California-based group, reported on Thursday that the silos were being built in a desert near the northwestern city of Yumen.
The James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies in Monterey said the 119 construction sites in Gansu province were similar to existing Chinese launch facilities for nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles.
State Department spokesman Ned Price was asked about the report on Thursday.
‘I think what is fair to say is that these reports and other developments suggest that the PRC’s (People’s Republic of China) nuclear arsenal will grow more quickly, and to a higher level, than perhaps previously anticipated,’ he said.
‘This buildup, it is concerning,’ Price said. ‘It raises questions about the PRC’s intent…”

July 28, 2021 — Voice of America News reports: “The Pentagon and Republican congressmen on Tuesday aired fresh concerns about China’s buildup of its nuclear forces after a new report saying Beijing was building 110 more missile silos.
An American Federation of Scientists report on Monday said satellite images showed China was building a new field of silos near Hami in the eastern part of its Xinjiang region.
The report came weeks after another on the construction of about 120 missile silos in Yumen, a desert area about 380 kilometers (240 miles) to the southeast.
‘This is the second time in two months the public has discovered what we have been saying all along about the growing threat the world faces and the veil of secrecy that surrounds it,’ the U.S. Strategic Command said in tweet linked to a New York Times article on the AFS report…”
