China said on Friday it would not stand for violations of its territorial waters in the name of freedom of navigation, as the United States considers sailing warships close to China’s artificial islands in the South China Sea.

EDITOR’S NOTE: One of the dreaded fruits of the Obama presidency is a world in which the United States is no longer feared by other nations like Iran, Russia and China just to name a few. Russia is having their way with Syria and they laugh at whatever Obama has to say because they know he won’t do anything. Iran openly mocks the United States and call daily for our destruction. Now China is piling on, telling the US to stay out of territories that don’t even actually belong to them. When the world no longer fears the “big dog”, that means it’s time for a “new dog”. In this case, three of them to be precise. Exactly as the Bible prophesied it would be in the end of time. 

A U.S. defense official told Reuters the United States was mulling sending ships within the next two weeks to waters inside the 12-nautical-mile zones that China claims as territory around islands it has built in the Spratly island chain.

The pictures show the amazing transformation, over the past year or so, of submerged atolls into sizeable islands with harbours, roads, container depots, workers’ dormitories and even cement plants. The reclamation activities have been documented periodically since early 2014 by Vietnamese bloggers, the Philippines foreign ministry, defense publisher IHS Janes, and, most recently, the Washington-based CSIS’s Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative.

China claims most of the South China Sea, though Washington has signaled it does not recognize Beijing’s territorial claims and that the U.S. navy will continue to operate wherever international law allows.

“We will never allow any country to violate China’s territorial waters and airspace in the Spratly Islands, in the name of protecting freedom of navigation and overflight,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a regular news briefing.

US Pentagon Confirms Chinese Deployed Artillery On Reclaimed Islands in Spratlys

“We urge the related parties not to take any provocative actions, and genuinely take a responsible stance on regional peace and stability,” Hua said in response to a question about possible U.S. patrols.

The United States and its allies in Asia, including Japan, have called on Beijing to halt construction on its man-made islands and the issue is central to increasingly tense U.S.-China relations.

Chinese President Xi Jinping has said China has no intention of militarizing the islands, but Washington analysts and U.S. officials say Beijing has already begun creating military facilities there.

Admiral Harry Harris, commander of U.S. forces in the Pacific, told the Aspen Security Forum in July that China was building hangars on one of the reefs – Fiery Cross – that appeared to be for tactical fighter aircraft.

In May, the Chinese navy issued eight warnings to the crew of a U.S. P8-A Poseidon surveillance aircraft that flew near China’s artificial islands, according to CNN, which was aboard the U.S. aircraft.

The Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan have overlapping claims in the South China Sea. source

    Putin’s desert adventure has lifted oil prices 9 percent which is good for the Russian economy….Brent oil now at $52 a barrel.

  • Dawn

    It’s no longer the White House it’s the scary little mouse. Is everybody just sick of politicians playing around with our lives? I am and soon you will no longer be able to cry wolf. The voters wanted 2 terms with Osama Bama so that’s what God gave them. Now that the Lord has been kicked out of everything how’s that working for pagan man not so good. Work hard, stay close to the Master and get ready to fly. We don’t even no a 1/4 of what evil is going on behind our backs and soon a public militia will start to form because seriously if you think the govt. is going to be there for you when it all goes down your in for a rude awakening. I’m just so sick of all the evil and rotten attitudes towards our faith and little Hitlers running all over the planet. It used to be God bless America now it’s God help America. Shalom.

    We have always known that Russia and United States would be involved in World War Three (Ezekiel 38-39) but, to get to the “two billion” killed mark, China would also have to be involved. That’s one-fourth of mankind (Revelation 6:8)…I can’t find any biblical passages indicating China and India’s involvement.

    • kiwiwatcher

      Which Bible do you read from?

      Revelation 16:12

      “And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way [road] of the kings of the east might be prepared.”

      They are heading to Armageddon after the sixth bowl is poured out.

      • Jewish Voice

        Kiwiwatcher, hey ,stupid. Revelation 16;12 is World War Four (Revelation 9:1414-19), not World War Three (Revelation 6:4, 8)…There is no mention of an Oriental army in World War Three (Ezekiel 39-39) while there is one of a 200,000,000 man Oriental army in World War Four (Revelation 9:16)…World War Four will last for 13 months (Revelation 9:15) while World War Three one evening (Isaiah 17:14)…World War Four will kill one-third of mankind (Revelation 9:16) while World War Three one-fourth (Revelation 6:8)…World War Four will start 29 months into the Great Tribulation while World War Three prior to the Abomination of Desolation…Next time read your Bible before you made an a** of yourself.

          And, yes, World War Four (Revelation 9:14-19) will end at Armageddon (Revelation 16:12-16).

            I commend you for your knowledge…

            I believe the mext war on the horizon will be Pslams 83 War…. Though I ask myself, how much will Russia want to invvolve itself just yet on a strike on Israel?… They have their eyes set on the new oil and gas reserves discovered off of Haifa…

        • kiwiwatcher

          My deepest apology JV. I lie prostrate in your shadow.

          2 Pet 3:3
          “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers…”

          I had not realised your incredible knowledge of the times you will be enduring and that you have accurately defined each war as being world war 3 and 4. All the very best.

        • carson

          if I have all knowledge and have not love I’m as a clanging cymbol.

          Jesus said bear much fruit..is that more a thing/important then having all knowledge? and fruit..? kids? many cars, businesses, ministries..? or fruits of the Holy Spirit (gal 5:22), well He did say-that your fruit would remain..so what remains? what is eternal fruit? possessions, kids? knowledge of prophecy? a prophet himself? won’t all that cease when Christ takes reign? yes it will all cease, 1st cor 13, but fruits of the Spirit will not cease.

          prophecy and events pales when compared to Christ and fruits of the Spirit, not that prophecy should be ignored but instead read and applied, but without love knowledge is harsh.
          You shall know them by their…? so fruits seem rather important.

          • Jewish Voice

            Writing about fruit, how come you christians have been losing 85% of your children to the world with each passing generation?…Now it’s down to one-half of one percent (1%) of our young people with a biblical worldview…Maybe you haven’t been teaching your children the ways of the Lord and living the life in front of them…Where is your fruit?

          • carson

            @ Jewish Voice, fruit that remains is fruit of the Holy Spirit.
            How did you conclude kids are eternal fruit? Also can we force faith upon our kids? Won’t kids grow up to be their own person? So if we can’t force faith upon them then how can we force/cause fruit in that regard?
            ..train a child in the way he should go..yet we can’t grant faith john 1:13..not by family line nor will of self or will of men, faith is a gift of God, which shows that children are not an eternal fruit of the Spirit but are a great blessing and more. In heaven, will kids still be subject to their earthly parents in the same as as in this present life?

            anyway bearing fruits of the Holy Spirit is in order, galations 5 shows them and being harsh etc is not bearing much fruit in regards to gentleness kindness patience..
            Again having all knowledge is not as important as bearing fruit of the Holy Spirit just as having all knowledge is not as important as the greatest thing loving God with all the heart soul strength…nobody’s saying have no knowledge, but each in it’s place, loving God and following and bearing much fruit of the Spirit goes onward forever whereas prophecy and things pertaining to this present world ends in the new heaven and earth.

  • alain humbert

    Well, brothers and sisters, a little pause-&-think here.

    We are on a Christian site, where we read Biblical Prophecies
    with the right eye while checking on the worldly dailies Their Fulfillment with the left eye.
    The Bible Is The Acid Test for the accuracy of the profane news.

    What is there then to be so excited about the howling of
    the rabid xi-kom hyena ?

    It’s the only thing it knows how to do well.

    And it will never get out of its GOD-Set Borders until the
    very last of the last days.
    For its ultimate doom at Har-Meggido.
    By the way, we must be indulgent since its lungs are still
    full with the per-fumes of Tianjin.

    Its accomplice vlad has suddenly turned around from the West
    and went South, drawn by the Invisible GOD-Put Hooks-in-the-jaw.

    The devil obviously thinks himself very smart in prodding his minion
    into suddenly make a threatening approach toward Israel, instead of letting him waste time in the North-West.
    Of course ha-satan knows correctly that Israel Is The Linchpin Of
    GOD’S PLAN, and he thinks that jumping the gun on Ezekiel 38-39
    thus bypassing Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17 would be a cleverly brilliant move to upset GOD’S PLAN.

    Well, a Biblical Clue about the ongoing wars in Syria, Is Daniel 11.

    It’s an apparently confusing chapter, making beloved Pastor Dwight
    Pentecost in his scholarly 1958″Things To Come” admit that the reading cannot make we tell clearly who is fighting whom.

    Which reflects exactly what is happening right now there.

    However, there’s an interesting mention of 2 campaigns by the King
    of the North, the first ending in failure at the hands of the King
    of the South, forcing him to later come back with a larger number
    of allies.

    Right now, the Magoggian onslaught, despite its overwhelming power looks to have bogged down on the ground – where it counts – and the regional opposition, including Turkey an avowed enemy of Israel,
    to his move is growing steadily.

    This King of the South emerges more and more as Saudi Arabia.

    Egypt has to reluctantly support the Magoggian due to DCdelilah’s
    sly betrayal in supporting the “Muslim Brotherhood”.
    And that doesn’t sit well at all withthe Saudi who is gathering
    an alliance, including the MB, to counter the Magoggian-Persian gang.

    Turkey in all probability is expected to join in soon.

    The Saudi will make Egypt pay dearly too.

    And the Magoggian bear will soon head back North tail between legs.

    But it will be back.

    The Qomeinist Persian regime is due for some unprecedented upheaval
    which will make it forget for a time about destroying Israel.

    The Kurds will rebuid their nation again.

    The King of the South success in temporarily giving the bear the
    boot will make him so arrogantly ecstatic that he will be ready
    to meet his doom in Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17.
    Which will usher in the return of the Northern bear.

    The Arab always resents any non-Arab Muslim who usurps his djinnhad
    foremost holy prerogative, which is the destruction of Israel.
    Hence his hostility toward the Persian, the Ottoman or any other
    secondary Muslim who pretends to frustrate him of his “72 Virgins”,
    which are Virgins Of Nuremberg aka Iron Maidens by the way.

    The fiendish ayatollah, upon his return to Persia in ’79 declared chillingly and unequivocally that his first and holiest Islamic duty
    is “The Independence of Palestine”.
    Which did not sit well at all with the Arabs.

    The devil forgets more often than not That It IS GOD WHO CALLS
    The Shots.

    GOD HAS everything Under HIS CONTROL, xi-kom & vlad included.

    And HE IS PUTTING PROPHECY Back On Track Again.

    GOD BLESS you

      Bomb blast yesterday in Ankara, Turkey, killing nearly 100 peaceful demonstrating Kurds, may be what gets Turkey involved, Alain H

    • Estrella de David

      Excellent reasoning… I too believe that the King of the South is Arabia Saudita, financer of Shia Terrorism…

      • alain humbert

        Daniel 11 is not an easy Chapter to read with Its relation of to-&-from wars between 2 equally evil kings.
        When Prophet Daniel Had It SPIRIT-REVEALED To him,
        some future events were then witheld from the Prophet’s knowledge.
        Daniel 12 : 4

        If you read French, there is an excellent study at
        bible-ouverte.ch Daniel 10 ; that connects the wars of then
        with those of now down to the advent of the anti-CHRIST and Armaggeddon, with some hints at the power of the false prophet too.

        GOD BLESS you.

  • kiwiwatcher

    Can’t see it myself Alain….especially the king of the south being Saudi Arabia. Guess you are saying that this desert adventure sets the scene for Daniel 11, as it appears to be later. All the best with it though

  • carson

    wars and rumors of wars, now major powers heating up..coupled with economic failings and much more.
    So the outcome…when all have suffered some hardships and fears of loss of precious possessions and what have you etc etc, will the world be ripe for a treaty? 7 years maybe? a treaty/covenant with the many?
    And why didn’t france submit the palestinain statehood bid before the UN last week? Are they waiting for the right time? when the world has come closer to a brink and is more apt to accept even desire such things?
    I dunno, interesting times.

    could be the fledgling magog coalition is more ..enlisted…to bring other things about, like a treaty and other, then later also enlisted to rid the world of the ‘burdensome stone’ that the world considers Israel to be. (of course they fail though). who knows, more important is having ones name in the Lambs/Christ’s book of life.

    For your information, the reason China wants this area is because of oil…My wife, who is from the Philippines, says that they have known for a long time that there was an abundance of oil under the South China Sea.

  • kiwiwatcher

    Greetings brothers and sisters

    Missed church today, as of the two pastors – one is of fire and brimstone, and the other is from Laodicea. No prizes for guessing who was speaking today.

    I have to confess to not listening to apparent scholars or teachers of Bible prophecy, especially the TV ‘prophets,’ although David Wilkinson delivered a powerful message. This is mainly due to not wishing to be contaminated with false teachings. In the 70’s Hal Lindsey made himself prominent and generated significant income with sales of 29 million with his ‘The Late Great Planet Earth.’ The book was interesting enough but again, was speculation weaved with various scriptures. On saying this I am aware of several Godly evangelists with a powerful salvation message, and please don’t include those with the message of prosperity. But unfortunately today, I do find it difficult to locate anyone with the gift of prophecy.

    2 Timothy 4 3-4
    “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
    And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

    As a wretched sinner and simple reader of the scriptures, an old battered King Jimmy has been a fantastic source of info and brings me great cheer. It enriches me with a doctrine entirely based on faith, not on knowledge.

    Hebrews 11:1
    “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

    It’s becoming obvious that all the signs have been given to us as to the end times, and I doubt very very much, there will be an exact replication from the scriptures to the current landscape. The world news is certainly interesting but we’ll be gone before it really hits the fan.

    2 Corinthians 5:7
    “For we walk by faith, not by sight”

    For example, Daniel 11 covers a period of about 500 years in the one chapter. To extract out an incident is foolhardy but over-all, one can view the narrative with some clarity.
    Alain H – I agree with you that Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Turkey are involved in some way or another, so hopefully I was not dismissive.
    Dual prophecy does occur but mainly as ‘types,’ and Daniel 11: 36 onwards is clearly in our future. It shows a powerful and “wilful king” who “shall exalt himself and magnify himself above every god.”
    Then “at the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind.” Daniel 11:40.

    So having recently been asked to study more of the Bible…..I’ve given it a shot.
    Psalm 119:105
    “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path”

    As for the end of times wars – according to the various ‘scholars’ – apparently World War three and four will take place. However, some confusion appears as to the details and the scriptural support is very vague. But there is a warning to people, not to contrive matters. The Bible clearly states that there will be one further World War. There will be various battles, regional wars, and environmental conflicts, but only one World War.

    Revelation 22:18
    “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:”

    Revelations 6:7-8
    “And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
    8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.”

    The Bible clearly states that one quarter of the world’s population will be killed by SWORD, FAMINE, DEATH and by ANIMALS. Obviously this is not a World War that kills one fourth of the population. Four forces are at play here and please do take note – it’s not a good time to keep a family pet.

    Revelation 9 is often quoted but it speaks of a supernatural event involving locusts emerging from a bottomless pit. For five months the locusts are to torment people on earth without the seal of God in their foreheads.
    Again this is not a World War but the Bible does describes the following as grief, anguish or affliction.

    Revelation 9:12
    “One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.”

    Next comes four angels being released from the Euphrates with an army of 200 million horsemen.

    Revelation 9:17
    “And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.
    By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.”

    For 13 months people are killed by FIRE, SMOKE and BRIMSTONE, not the sword, nor are earth dwellers battling in a World War, although it may feel like it. The Bible even describes the two events in verse 20 “And the rest of the men which were not killed by these PLAGUES….”

    The combined total killed thus far is 50% of the world’s population.

    The third woe appears to be the World War when the worlds’ armies are deceived into fighting Christ.

    Revelation 16:13-14
    “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
    For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of THE WHOLE WORLD, TO GATHER THEM to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”

    Sorry for being long winded but Ezekiel 38 speaks of a regional war and painstakingly names the participants. As with all intensive regional wars – it will have an effect on the world.

    Thanks for sticking with it and I pray that it helps someone. I could make some reasonable speculations on things to come but hey…not scriptural. Any errors – let me know in the usual way. God bless you all.

    Matthew 24:6
    “And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”

    • Slade

      Revelation 16:12, is that already been fulfilled in bible prophecy?

      • kiwiwatcher

        Yes, as you know it has.

        A prophecy by Isaiah 6:1 about the year 740BC predicted the demise of the Babylon. About 200 years later in October 539BC – Cyrus the Persian captured Babylon by diverting the river Euphrates. Young Cyrus was co-regent in the Mede-Persian kingdom, and handed Babylon over when Darius the Mede arrived. (Daniel 5:31)
        One of the illustrations being that believers receive entry to the kingdom either through the power of God or directly through his hands – by no act of their own.

        Anyway, as a dual prophecy and noted in Revelation (and I am not prophetic) it’s a ‘type.’

        Significant power and resources were received by the original Babylonian city-state through the river Euphrates. The city stretched on either side of the river, the Euphrates flowing through the centre where the shores were flanked with quays and warehouses to receive the trade which flowed in from all parts of the world. An immense and impregnable wall surrounded the whole city. The only access was by the river, and its quays and banks were likewise protected by great gates which forbade all access to the city from within.

        Amongst other wretched behaviour, the Babylonians were cruel (Isaiah 47:6) and full of pride (Isaiah 47: 7-8) while their king was blasphemous (Daniel 5:1-4).

        Meanwhile, in Revelation 16:12 – Mystery Babylon will have its strength removed and will be made vulnerable for destruction.

        • Jewish Voice

          Darius is the son of King Ahasuerus and Queen Esther (Daniel 9:1). Darius and Cyrus are one and the same person. He changed his name when he conquered Babylon.

          • kiwiwatcher

            Oh. Ok, something to learn I guess. Looking forward to the supporting scriptures

            Apparently the theory that two men were the same person arose in the late 1950s, but regardless, I will stick with what I read in the Bible as it appears to be completely two differing rulers.

            Daniel 6:28
            “So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus, the Persian.”

            The Babylonian Chronicles (clay tablets) Nabonidus Cylinder shows that Gubaru born 601 BC, was Cyrus’s governor who arrived at Babylon aged 62 after Cyrus had taken the city. The senior governor was given the name Darius meaning Holder of the Scepter. The book of Daniel also mentions governors.

            Daniel 5:31
            “And Darius the Median took the kingdom, being about threescore and two years old.”

            Thanks for your input as it is very much appreciated

          • kiwiwatcher

            Something slightly interesting that should have been included.

            At the age of 62 in Daniel 9:1 Darius was “made king” over this realm. The verb is in the Hophal or passive of the causative, which clearly implies that someone else (a human) had appointed him to that office.

            This would be an incorrect use of Bible language if Darius and Cyrus were the same person, as Cyrus had captured Babylon.

            God bless

      • carson

        rev 16:12 is the 6th vial of the wrath of God. Are we in the 7 vials period/era? no. Matthew 24:15-22 has a nice summary, the abomination of desolation, THEN, GREAT tribulation.

        whatever happened before with rivers drying up it wasn’t a vial of the 7 vials of wrath, rev 16:12 specifically notes it’s the 6th vial of the 7 vials, that time is still to come.

        • kiwiwatcher

          Yes, couldn’t have said it better.

          Do you think it is a literal drying up of the river or is it figurative drying up of the river?

          • carson

            Hi Kiwi, yeah I think literally dried up. There is precedence being set today for many things which will unfold later, the dams which control the river, or the Lord could just dry it up in many other way’s but be dried up it will, everything written will be fulfilled, rejoice in Christ always eyes firmly fixed on Him and things above and bearing much fruit of the Holy Spirit in joy.

  • Jewish Voice

    Kiwiwatcher (DB), read the book “Identification of Darius the Mede” written by Dr. George Law. Dr. Law made a scientific examination of the evidence from many different sources, including the Bible, and concluded that Darius was Cyyrus…You can tell that the two names are the same man in Daniel 6:28 and Ezra 5:13 to 6:1)…Esther was his mother, making him half-Jewish (Daniel 9:1 and Esther 2:16-17).

    • kiwiwatcher

      Thank you for that JV…..what a great read. Yes, from the evidence G Law has produced (and its extensive) it appears Darius and Cyrus are the same man. From Iran – wonder if that means anything. Apology for getting it wrong and thank you once again.

      Btw – what’s a DB?
