Listen to Today's Program
China's military held war games recently aimed at deploying forces at long distances, and exercise that sent some 50,000 armored troops, the People's Liberation Army, the world's largest standing military force to distant locations to see if this military force can perform at the level needed to keep China secure.
The People's Liberation Army, 2.5 million soldiers, has undergone a rapid upgrade in recent years in both equipment and doctrine and with annual double digit increases in military spending to provide cutting edge fighter jets, nuclear submarines, and hundreds of ballistic missiles.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
China's ever expanding economy and military buildup is a precursor to the end time scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy for the last days.
During these times of global economic crisis the nation of China has not only held its own economically but it has even grown faster than any superpower nation of the world. At the same time of economic prosperity, the Chinese military has been on a program to upgrade all of its forces and equipment to a cutting edge state of the art level needed for the security of the world's largest nation. With the world's largest military force, 2.5 million troops, the Chinese military may well be the top fighting force in the world today.
This report is an indication of the fact that China is ready to fulfill the 6th vial judgment found in Revelation 16:12. That judgment will be the kings of the east which will include China, the kings of the east making their way to Jerusalem to join the other armies of the world (Zechariah 14:2) under the leadership of Antichrist, Satan, and the False Prophet as they will try to destroy Israel and stop the Messiah Jesus Christ from coming back to Earth. China's military will lend its activities to all the world's military conflicts as foretold in Revelation with a proliferation of wars and rumors of wars that Jesus said would proceed His coming (Matthew 24:6-7).
China's latest military exercises are indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
