A White House protester draws attention to China's major problems

President Bush and his Chinese counterpart, President Hu, made little headway, according to reports of the meeting between the two heads of state, this the case after a White House ceremony which was disrupted by a lone Chinese protester and the misidentification of China's national anthem.

President Hu of China said a good China-US relationship is of strategic importance in the Asia-Pacific region and in the world at large; however, the two national leaders were unable to resolve their differences on Iran's nuclear ambition, state execution, abortion, and the freedom of worship in China.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

A meeting at the White House between the presidents of China and the US not only attracted attention to current significant problems, but a future scenario prophetically as well, that is according to Bible prophecy. When the president of the world's most populated nation and the president of the world's superpower nation meet, this is an event that must be noticed.

Many observers of current events see major problems in the relationship between these two major forces in our present world. The least of which is the economic issues. Human Rights Watch says that China is the world's leader in public government executions by far. Pro-life advocates say that government directed abortions in China are killing millions of children and many because they are girls instead of boys. Christian leaders say that the suppression of the freedom of religion in China should not allow China to sit at the table with world leaders whose nations give all religions the right to assemble and worship after their own choosing.

The prophetic scenario that comes to mind as we watch President Bush and President Hu on the White House lawn is found in Revelation 16:12, a statement that foretells the kings of the East and the leading king, China, these kings moving to Jerusalem to destroy the Jewish people. This will happen very near the time Jesus Christ returns to the earth.

The White House meeting between Bush and Hu does indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
