Will Israel someday cry out “The two hundred million Chinese are coming”?
Perhaps they will cry out “The Russians are coming”?
While such an army of 200 million will definitely include Chinese, but it will not be China and while it will definitely include nations that were part of Russia, it will not be Russia.
And we are already seeing the nations working to unite whose armies constitute even more than 200 million man army. But the enemies who are preparing to come against Jerusalem will deny the Trinity and will all be Muslim.
All we need to know to see this is to look at the political earthquakes and see the new fault lines that are already being drawn.
Here, let me explain everything, but I do need your keen eye and your patience, so forget the football and the popcorn for a change.
First of all, today the U.S., Russia, and China, like Israel, all have Islamic terrorism problems. They’re all fighting the same enemies – Islamic ideologues who seek a global caliphate based in Turkey. Just keep your eyes on the flags (see photo below) of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow (Revelation 19:17).
With Russia, Chechens have been openly fighting them for centuries. When it comes to China, that country has seen an increase in Muslim Uyghur aggression after the fall of the Soviet Union. And this week, we see in China the Uyghur Muslims heeding the call announced by the bastard child of the neo-Ottoman Turks, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Caliph of ISIS carrying out what the neo-Ottoman Turks want – a Caliphate that will dwarf al-Baghdadi’s version.
When it comes to the Ottoman Caliphate that the Turks wish to resurrect, the Turk set his eye on northwestern China using the Uyghur in the Xinjiang Province which is east of Turkestan as was just reported by the Chinese news report.
Turkey’s Erdogan and Davutoglu even visited the Uyghurs in Xinjiang / East Turkistan prepping it to secede from China. In fact, relations between Ankara and Beijing deteriorated after riots broke out in 2009 after the Uighurs began to genocide ethnic Han Chinese in Urumqi and the Chinese government cracked down and rightfully so.
Whoever said that the “200 million man army” comes only from China, has cataract. The Almighty had designed us with two eyes for a reason so that perhaps that if one fails, the other eye can see more clearly.
While cataract is easily healed, the one infected eye failed to see that its not China that is coming right next to the Uyghur’s Xinjiang, but Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan, each borders China and are all home to the Turkish-influenced Uyghurs. Ironically, there is a Uyghur presence in Afghanistan as well.
The Muslim Uyghurs revived their Islamist aspirations as a direct result of the political earthquake in Russia when former Soviet satellite countries split that bordered China after declaring independence from Russia. In fact, the rise of Islamic terror attacks in China seemed to coincide with the fall of the Soviet Union which has reverted to Christian Orthodoxy after the fall of Communism.
Today it is becoming more obvious that people with cataract couldn’t see well and switched everything upside down; nations that seem to have finally stood up to Islamic tyranny are painted as Gog and Antichrist while Muslim nations that deny Father and Son slipped away unscathed or were rendered as a minor player by the pen of Prophecy buffs.
China (which in the past suffered tremendously from Japan and Islam by Ottomans and the Xinjiang Uighur Muslims) were portrayed to be the armies of the kings of the east in Revelation regardless that China has rarely expressed a warlike attitude.
It was only beginning from the 16th century that the cataract began when some European prophecy buffs proposed the idea that the Russian Muscovites are involved as Gog saying that Moscow stemmed from Meshech. This started with Sir Walter Ralegh (English aristocrat, c. 1616) who attributes this opinion to Philipp Melanchthon, German reformer (1497–1560) who collaborated with Martin Luther, the first systematic theologian of the Protestant Reformation and to Benito Arias Montano (1571), a Spanish orientalist which later, the error was also followed by Jonathan Edwards (1703–1758), a theologian.
And as it is the norm, that theologians all of the sudden becoming historians added to the fray. Even worse, they claimed that “Moscow” (Moskva) was founded by King Mosokh son of Japheth (i.e. Meshech) which turns out to be a legend that first appeared in the Kievan Synopsis (1674).
As I stated before, to have theologians perform brain surgery, the patient will end up with a lobotomy. Why not believe Sr. Henry Rawlinson, the Father of Assyriology who outrightly rejects the idea that “Moschi” (Meshech) is Moscow:
Some have found in the Moshci the founders of Moscow, the ancestors of the present Muscovites. But this identification has no historical or ethnological basis, resting wholly on the similarity of the names. (Rawlinson, The Origin of Nations, p. 179, f) (For more on this click here)
When we think of etymology on Gog, Meshech and Tubal, we need to stop thinking Russia, but think “Gygez”, Esarhaddon (681-668 BC) records his defeat of the Gimirrai, while King Ashurbanipal tells us in his records of the Cimmerian invasion of Lydia (Turkey) in the days of the Lydian king Gugu (Gygez, Gogaz) around the year 660 BC. This is the same general period that Ezekiel was writing his prophecy. In fact, the first mention of the term “Turk” which remains to this day, was by the Gokturks (GogTurk) in the 6th century. A letter by the Chinese Emperor written to the Göktürk khan named Isbara in 585 describes him as “the Great Turk khan”. The Orhun inscriptions from the same time use the term “Turuk”.
Meshech and Tubal is not Moscow and Tobolsk as theologian (not historian), C.I Scofield claimed, but is Mushki and Tubalani in Asia Minor (Turkey) as supported by real historians who etched their expert views in the Oxford Bible Atlas, Moody, McMillan, Encyclopedia of Bible Lands and others… All these are Muslim.
The self-proclaimed Prophecy book-sellers had rudimentary knowledge of biblical hermeneutics and rarely even looked into the Uighur or Ottoman history failing to even read that it was the Turkic Nations who were the foremost in God’s warning which include nations such as Turkey, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan:
“There is Meshech, Tubal, and all her multitude: her graves are round about him: all of them uncircumcised, slain by the sword, though they caused their terror in the land of the living. And they shall not lie with the mighty that are fallen of the uncircumcised, which are gone down to hell with their weapons of war: and they have laid their swords under their heads, but their iniquities shall be upon their bones, though they were the terror of the mighty in the land of the living.” (Ezekiel 32:26-27)
This is a major declaration, these nations will be buried around Antichrist “her graves are round about him” and they are terrorist states “they caused their terror in the land of the living”.
Today the snow is melting and many are healed from the prophecy cataract and the world is forging some strange alliances. The whole earth is being paved for the coming of the Antichrist, and the New Crusade that will commence, but this time, it will be lead by Christ. So many think that when Christ appears, its “poof” and all is done and the Antichrist with his armies are all consumed in an instant and the world rests at last.
Christ will initially even correct heresy and confirm proper theology when He confronts Islam with the truth about the Trinity.
Difficult to believe?
Why else does He even address the Harlot’s religion regarding the Trinity in Isaiah 48, and by that He will even clear the Catholic from the utter slander that he follows a harlot religion?
Speaking to this Harlot “Lady of Kingdoms” and in a challenge to Islam, the Lord Jesus Christ declares what Islam denies; His part in the Trinity:
“Come near to Me, hear this; I have not spoken in secret, from the beginning; From the time that it was, I was there, And now the Lord God and His Spirit Have sent Me” (Isaiah 48:16).
In one solid verse, we see that,
“From the time that it was (from the beginning was The Word), I (God the Son) was there; and now the Lord God (The Father) and His Spirit (The Holy Spirit) Have sent Me (The Son).”
But this is not just a simple announcement by God in the Bible and it is not simply a declaration on correct theology for all times etched in the past, its a prophecy (as the Bible as a whole is) since ancient Israel. The context is crystal clear, Jesus is addressing His speech to Israel and to Mystery Babylon:
“All ye, assemble yourselves, and hear; which among them hath declared these things? The LORD hath loved him: he will do his pleasure on Babylon, and his arm shall be on the Chaldeans.” (Isaiah 48:14)
God is clarifying His nature and attributes that they have denied: The Trinity which it was the Catholic who deduced from Scripture as major theology in which the Protestant also inherited as solid truth. And “His Arm,” is the Messiah, see Isaiah 53, “to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed” who was the suffering servant, revealed as Messiah and “the Arm of the Lord” in several passages in end-time context in which His Arm (Christ) will judge the whole of Arabia (Babylon):
“… thus Says the Lord GOD; ‘I will also stretch out mine hand upon Edom, and will cut off man and beast from it; and I will make it desolate from Teman [Yemen]; and they of Dedan [Arabia] shall fall by the sword’” (Ezekiel 25:12-13).
It is amazing that few Westerners see the context of this—how the Messiah is denouncing Mystery Babylon and her denial of the Trinity. Here He confronts the Babylonian spirit of Antichrist (I John 2:22) which “denies Father and Son”.
While many would object, the Catholic and the Russian Orthodox are shrewd with Israel. But it was the Catholic who rescued more Jews than any other and it is also God whom prior to Christ’s coming also reprimands Israel with some of His own words:
Fear you not, O Jacob my servant, said the LORD: for I am with you; for I will make a full end of all the nations where I have driven you: but I will not make a full end of you, but correct you in measure; yet will I not leave you wholly unpunished. (Jeremiah 46:28)
Russia is obviously a major player in the chess game of end times. If the collapse of the Soviet Empire was unthinkable and it happened, nothing can be ruled out in today’s political climate. President Putin called the fall of the Soviet Union “the most catastrophic geostrategic tragedy of the 20th century.”
But what few focused on is that: religion is the main drive in world affairs, not economy. The Soviet collapse was the earthquake that divided Orthodox from Muslim. The Muslim Tatar in Crimea is already complaining about Russia who is expanding their borders into the Ukraine while the Muslim is expanding his.
Everybody witnessed that in the Crimean referendum the most vocal ethnic group that voted against Ukraine’s union with Russia was the Muslim Tatars who have ruled Crimea for many centuries, sometimes falling under Ottoman rule, which extended all the way to Crimea. Mr. Davutoglu publicly came to the Tatars’ defense as former Ottoman subject/allies. (1)
The Almighty by Russia taking the Ukraine is perhaps removing the only buffer between Turkey and Russia and is setting up the launching pad for Russian airstrikes and submarines cross the Black Sea into Turkey to defeat it.
But perhaps a history lesson is crucial to explain all this. There were two major wars were fought between the Russian and Ottoman empires in the 19th century. The Tatars even had a republic after the Soviet rule (1921-1944) until Stalin deported 238,500 Tatars to Central Asia because they had cooperated with the Nazis during the German occupation (1941-44) of Crimea. That elevated the Russian ethnic profile on the peninsula, until Sergey Khrushchev annexed the region of his native Ukraine in 1954 and Putin undid that annexation this year.
In the Ottoman Empire, the war minister and de facto Commander-in-Chief was Enver Pasha who was considered to be the most powerful figure of the Ottoman government. He made the decision to enter the Empire into World War I, on the side of Germany. Along with Talaat Pasha and Djemal Pasha, he was one of the principal perpetrators of the Armenian Genocide. And today, the specter of new Ottomanism looms on the Armenian border.
It is always crucial to understand, the war is not only against Israel, but satan’s attempt to destroy all who love The Trinity. It is the war between the heretic and the Orthodox. Israel is in the plan of redemption and is the center of the eye in the coming storm.
The Armenians who escaped Kessab will get their fate and be martyred with many of their brethren in Armenia. Enver had a dream which he pursued, but did not see realized, as he was killed in Bukhara, but two weeks ago, despite knowing that ISIS was Turkey’s creation in which the terrorist organization’s members were trained, armed and supplied by Turkey and allowed to cross into Syria and Iraq from the Turkish border. In fact, in Aleppo, Armenians have been at the receiving end of their firepower. After all the outrage that ISIS has caused, Turkey is still reluctant to join a collation to stop the barbarism.
It was Obama, the devil’s plant, who armed Turkey to such an extent that it boasts of having the strongest army in the NATO structure, after the US. which also helped Turkey develop its economy, so that today Ankara can implement an independent policy, undermining its allies.
While many believe that the major pressure in this whole fiasco will be on Israel since they read of Gog and Antichrist, but in truth, its not Israel that will ultimately suffer but Saudi Arabia, the main proponent of the Arian Heresy that denied the Trinity. God is not coming down to strictly defend Israel, but His own name and attributes.
Can one imagine, that Armageddon is over the Trinity?
It is, and Saudi Arabia will be annihilated.
Just recently, the rebellion in Yemen has also given Iran the upper hand in its rivalry with Saudi Arabia on the Arabian Peninsula. Houthis are a mortal foe of Saudi Arabia, which is another chip lost in the chess game for Saudi Arabia which in the long run will have to contend with Iran (biblical Elam) when it will announce war against the Arab harlot and burn it via a nuke (see Isaiah 21) which we predicted will happen.
The United States is in check; its influence during 2011, via satan’s plan, Obama, fractured the Middle East to a point of no return. While we get excited over bombing ISIS, it matters little, the Islamist cat is out of the box and the superpowers in the region, Iran and Turkey know it and they are poised to arise and eat much flesh.
Its getting closer by the day, Erdogan was just hailed recently in Azerbaijan as the “standard bearer of new Ottomanism” and Ilham Aliyev, the president of Azerbaijan is keen to build an alliance with Turkey, and clearly sees common cause in a shared dislike of Armenia.
The students with cataract, had they simply used real historians and real maps, they would have saved themselves the ultimate surgery. All they needed to do is to simply find what the Bible says, look up real historians, and then jot it on the map.
God made it that simple.
So when they read “the Kings of the East,” with its 200 million-man army invading Israel, we should first search, where else will we find “kings” coming from the East?
Perhaps this is why I, a wretched sinner, had to come from Bethlehem, I find The Answer (Jesus) for everything in my village:
“Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,” (Matthew 2:1).
Stop isolating text without exploring the rest of Scripture regarding literal nations from the east. In all of Scripture, not a single passage connects “Kings of the East” with China.
I read the same Bible you all do:
“And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared,” (Revelation 16:10).
I know of the wealthy kings of the east who came to my village were from the regions of Babylonia and Persia and possibly even further. Why not consider this option?
Westerners argue that the reason the Kings of the East in Revelation come from China is the staggering number of soldiers—a 200-million-man army. But Islam can easily muster this if you consider Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan uniting with Turkey Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Azerbaijan and Tajikistanand, even Indonesia east of the Euphrates with several kings.
Why do so many apply Revelation’s prophecies to a future attack upon Israel by Russia or China, especially that China is but one king and the biblical text says “kings”?
Go ahead, now you can watch football, as much as I hate the game, at least its only American civil war!
