It is ironic that we associate China with the dragon, because there is a dragon who is God’s great enemy, and that dragon is determined to destroy mankind. ‘Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back.’ Revelation 12:7. This is yet future, but only just.
Of course China has no idea that they are being beguiled by that dragon to help unseat God and destroy His plan for mankind, but that is what is happening, and you can guess who will be the losers, including a great army from the East totalling 200 million!.. Revelation 9:16, The number of mounted troops was twice ten thousand times ten thousand; I heard their number.’!!!
You guessed right. The dragon is Satan, and He will rejoice to see many more that die in defeat at Armageddon, but from those figures we can gather that China is not going to change its ways as a bare faced bully. We can learn from this that Australia and the West are facing a Chinese threat, the like of which has not been seen since the 1930’s. Unashamed expansionism, coerciveness, refusal to abide by accepted legal and economic rules, cyber theft, and a total lack of respect fo the human rights of smaller nations, while criticising those who dare to call out these things, does not bode well for world peace.
It was only with the advent of Trump, with his forceful bluntness, unpredictability and willingness to ignore convention that the Chinese met their match. They will rejoice to see Biden replace him.
In a recent stand-off in the Himalayas between China and India, the Chinese military had no qualms about showing their true colours, by using microwave weapons to force Indian troops to retreat. “We solved the problem beautifully” bragged one Chinese professor, and “turned the mountain tops into a microwave oven, ‘ he said. “In 15 minutes those occupying the hilltops all began to vomit.”
Obviously, the Chinese leaders will not think twice about using any weapon to gain what they want and what they want is pre-eminence over ALL nations. Sound familiar? Why was China so keen to install the ‘Belt and Road’ infrastructure leading west into Europe, and its bases in the ‘South China Sea’, while the nations repeat the mistakes of the 1930’s and do nothing?
Revelation 9:13-19 ‘Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar before God, saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour, the day, the month, and the year, were released to kill a third of mankind. The number of mounted troops was twice ten thousand times ten thousand; I heard their number. And this is how I saw the horses in my vision and those who rode them: they wore breastplates the colour of fire and of sapphire and of sulphur and the heads of the horses were like lions’ heads, and fire and smoke and sulphur came out of their mouths. By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed, by the fire and smoke and sulfur coming out of their mouths. For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails, for their tails are like serpents with heads, and by means of them they wound.’
Cf. Revelation 16:12.
