KINGS OF THE EAST: China Unveils Massive 190′ High Pagan ‘God Of War’ Statue Guan Yu

The intimidating statue stands in the city of Jingzhou in Hubei province – and you would be well advised not to pick a fight with it. Along with fooling aliens into thinking we’re a world full of warrior giants, the statue is also home to an 8,000-square-meter Guan Yu museum, according to CCTV News.

China has redefined the concept of ‘statue’ with the unveiling of a colossal 1,320-ton, 58-meter-high statue of legendary general and ‘God of War’ Guan Yu.

“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 16:12 (KJV)

China, a pagan and Communist nation, is rapidly becoming one of the world’s largest economies and has the largest standing army on earth. The Bible talks about the “kings of the east” marching into Israel to fight the Jews at the Battle of Armageddon. So the fact that they have unveiled a 19 story high statue to the ‘god of war’ is perhaps something students of Bible prophecy might find interesting…to say the least.

Revealing the God of War Statue – Guan Yu Statue Completed in China

The general fought to end the reign of the Han dynasty and establish the Shu Han state before he died in 220 CE. In the sixth century he was deified, earning him the very cool title of “God of War”.

He must have been a popular guy, because he has already been immortalized in several statues around the world including in Japan, Taiwan and Vietnam. Surprisingly the latest statue isn’t actually the biggest – that honor goes to his hometown of Changping in the Shanxi province, where Guan Yu dominates the town from a height of 61 meters. source
