China will join Iran and Russia in military exercises as they try to replace the United States influence in the Middle East

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Ken what do you know about Iran, Russia and China to hold joint war games? They say it’s going to be a message to the world, what do you know about that?

KT: Well indeed and that’s been announced for some time. I am going to be watching this very carefully Jimmy to see if it actually takes place. Because with the US carrier battle group in the Persian Gulf I would be a little surprised to see the Russians and the Chinese holding naval exercises with the Iranians across from that US carrier battleground. But we’ll see.

So if these war games take place while the US aircraft carrier is still in the Persian Gulf that would be a tremendously dramatic escalation of tensions. My guess is the Russians and Chinese are going to say “lets wait until the Americans leave”.  

JD: But I understand that China is in a bit to try to replace the United States influence in the Middle East is that pretty much on target?

KT: They are, and they are making in roads in many different countries. They’re working militarily. They’re working economically. All this is part of what they call the Belt and Road Initiative. But they’re very definitely offering their money. They have a tremendous amount of surplus cash over two trillion dollars from US cash because they’ve been ripping off the United States for all these years. So this is that US-China trade and balance. They’ve got all this cash built up even though their economy has been suffering this year. They’re throwing it about in the Middle East to buy friends and allies. And yes, that’s what’s going on the Chinese are trying to become a power in the Middle East in a way that they have never been able to before.

JD: Ken Timmerman with the details behind the Iranian, Russian, Chinese military exercises and China’s efforts to replace American influence in the Middle East.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

The Chinese efforts to replace America’s influence in the Middle East is actually a page out of Bible prophecy. Remember the United States is not mentioned in Bible prophecy. However, the prophetic scriptures do mention the largest nation in the world and that of course is China.

In Revelation 16:12 it mentions the Kings of the East and that is referring to China and other far Eastern nations at the end of the seven-year Tribulation period. China will form the coalition of nations to go to Jerusalem and try to stop the return of Jesus Christ to the Earth, that’s Zechariah 14:2. China will indeed replace the American influence in the Middle East.
