The top US Spy Chief warns Congress about China, Russia and OPEC oil producing countries

The US National Director of Intelligence, Michael McConnel, spoke of his concerns in the annual assessment of potential threats when addressing Congress recently and suggested that the threats in which economic matters join terrorism, nuclear proliferation and computer networking vulnerabilities were the top security issues.

McConnel said he was concerned about the financial capabilities of Russia, China and the OPEC countries and the potential use of their market access to exert financial leverage to political ends.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The intelligence assessment by the US chief spy referring to the threat from China, Russia and the OPEC oil producing nations is a page out of Bible prophecy for the Last Days.

An intelligence report that focuses on China, Russia and the OPEC oil producing states has made it clear that these three different geopolitical entities can use economics to affect politics in the world. The world is today watching Russia and its leader, Vladimir Putin, take control of energy sources that supply Europe and has positioned itself to impact geopolitical activities in Europe. At the same time, China with its almost twenty-five percent of the world's total population is developing a major military force with control of all the sea lanes from the OPEC nations to the refineries in China. OPEC oil producing nations can and are manipulating political activities through its control of oil production supplying the needs of nations with ever increasing needs.

These three political entities will be major players in the End Time scenario that is found in Bible prophecy. Russia leads a coalition of nations against the Jewish state of Israel in the Last Days, Ezekiel 38:2, where Magog is the political name for modern-day Russia. OPEC nations will be the nations that form the alliance led by Russia, Ezekiel 38:2-6. China is referred to as the Kings of the East, Revelation 16:12, that brings a mighty force to Jerusalem to form an army of nations to stop the Return of Jesus Christ.
