Wars

China

PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE:

The dramatic growth of China in our generation is often ignored in prophetic calculations. It is not a traditional foe of Israel, and had not been considered a major threat to the End Times world empire until recently. It is the most populous nation on Earth, and recently has made a huge impact on world economies.

It allows a state-approved Christian presence but severely persecutes the immense house-church movement.

China is involved in a massive military build-up that threatens Taiwan, South Korea, and other Asian countries. It is apparently involved in massive cyber- attacks on the Internet. It is, therefore, a prime example of Jesus' prediction of "wars and rumors of war in the days leading up to the Tribulation (Matthew 24:6). China will also be a participant in the Battle of Armageddon, as one of the "Kings of the East" that will cross the dried-up Euphrates river to join the campaign (Revelation 16:12).
