The China-America Clash Is Prophesied
By Gerald Flurry • May 15, 2020
The Five Eyes intelligence alliance—comprised of the United States, Canada, Britain, Australia and New Zealand—has compiled a shocking 15-page coronavirus report, which was obtained by the press in early May. This document is a sobering warning to the entire world!
For years, China has been ferocious in its attempts to surpass the U.S. economy and scientific advancements. By now, it probably has.
The coronavirus crisis has cost the U.S. trillions of dollars. The national debt keeps climbing toward $30 trillion. This weakness will soon ensure that the U.S. is no longer a superpower.
The China-America relationship is becoming a tense clash of superpowers. This clash was prophesied in your Bible!
A Man-made Plague
Every indication is that covid-19 came from a laboratory in Wuhan, China. President Donald Trump’s administration hasn’t accused China of creating the coronavirus in a lab, but it has questioned whether the virus escaped from a Chinese lab on accident. In 2014, the U.S. withdrew funding to China for “controversial experiments that make pathogens more potent or likely to spread dangerous viruses,” wrote Sherri Marsden for the Australian Daily Telegraph on May 4. The concern about Chinese laboratories has spanned U.S. presidential administrations!
On Jan. 19, 2018, a ‘’sensitive but unclassified'’ cable sent to Washington, D.C., from U.S. embassy scientists and diplomats in Beijing reported “inadequate safety practices and management weaknesses as it conducted research on coronaviruses from bats.”
The cable warned: “During interactions with scientists at the [Wuhan Institute of Virology] laboratory, they noted the new lab has a serious shortage of appropriately trained technicians and investigators needed to safely operate this high-containment laboratory.”
The Five Eyes document makes another disturbing claim: Before the coronavirus spread around the world, Chinese scientists wondered whether it was worth experimenting with dangerous viruses to try to prevent a pandemic, when an accidental leak of such a virus could also cause a pandemic.
Clearly, the coronavirus is a man-made plague.
An Act of War?
“China deliberately suppressed or destroyed evidence of the coronavirus outbreak in an ‘assault on international transparency’ that cost tens of thousands of lives, according to a dossier prepared by concerned Western governments on the covid-19 contagion” (Australian Daily Telegraph).
According to the Australian Daily Telegraph, the Five Eyes intelligence document’s major themes include: “the ‘deadly denial of human-to-human transmission,’ the silencing or ‘disappearing’ of doctors and scientists who spoke out, the destruction of evidence of the virus from genomic studies laboratories, and ‘bleaching of wildlife market stalls,’ along with the refusal to provide live virus samples to international scientists working on a vaccine. … [A]nd data on asymptomatic ‘silent carriers’ kept secret.”
“Despite evidence of human-human transmission from early December, prc [the People’s Republic of China] authorities deny it until January 20,” the Five Eyes report states. “The World Health Organization does the same. Yet officials in Taiwan raised concerns as early as December 31, as did experts in Hong Kong on January 4.”
The report continues: “Millions of people leave Wuhan after the outbreak and before Beijing locks down the city on January 23. … Thousands fly overseas. Throughout February, Beijing presses the U.S., Italy, India, Australia, Southeast Asian neighbors and others not to protect themselves via travel restrictions, even as the prc imposes severe restrictions at home.”
Far too many people have died. The coronavirus outbreak could have been prevented. Eight Wuhan doctors tried to warn the world and were arrested and rebuked. One citizen journalist and local businessman disappeared. Foreign journalists were expelled. The Chinese government didn’t want the truth to leak out like the virus probably did. This is communism in action.
China has lied, hidden the truth, and refused to let experts in to examine evidence, all while hoarding medical supplies. Everyone knows China is covering something up! China caused the plague! This is brazen aggression. This is cruelty beyond imagination! This is on the level of an act of war!
A Sign From God
God blessed the nations of Israel—primarily America, Britain and the Jewish nation in the Middle East—with vital sea gates like Panama, Gibraltar and Singapore. (Request our free book The United States and Britain in Prophecy to prove the biblical identities of these modern-day nations.) Today, these sea gates are being given up or stolen by enemies.
“Ever since Xi Jinping took over as general secretary of the Communist Party of China, his administration has been militarizing the South China Sea and working to push the United States out of East Asia,” I wrote in a July 2016 Philadelphia Trumpet article titled “China Is Steering the World Toward War.” “In two island chains, the Paracels and the Spratlys, China is building a series of man-made islands, 800 miles from China’s shore. These islands are being installed with antiaircraft batteries, and fighter jets are stationed on them.”
The U.S. has asserted naval dominance in the South China Sea since World War ii—until the last several years. Now, China is bullying and domineering its neighbors into submission. This is important because about a third of maritime commerce, $5.3 trillion annually, travels through the South China Sea. China has the power to stop all this free movement of goods, which would prove to be a colossal danger to the U.S.
Trade wars often lead to shooting wars.
Japan seizing Singapore from Britain during World War ii signaled the beginning of the end of the mighty British Empire. China is now exhibiting similar war-making aggression. The U.S. once had complete control of the South China Sea. China is taking it away by literally building a new sea gate in the Spratlys and Paracels.
How can the U.S. possibly trust China when it lies and cheats constantly? Without any trust in China, America has to remain stronger than China. But without strategic mastery of the crucial sea lanes, America won’t be superior for long.
God’s blessing of sea gates upon the nations of Israel is a result of the patriarch Abraham’s obedience thousands of years ago. “… By myself have I sworn, saith the Lord, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies” (Genesis 22:16-17). Abraham was prepared to sacrifice his son, Isaac, because God told him to. This example is a type of God the Father sacrificing His Son to pay the price for the sins of all mankind!
When Abraham passed this test of obedience, God promised that Abraham’s “seed shall possess the gate of his enemies.” Sea gates! Until recently, America and Britain proudly controlled almost all important sea gates worldwide. Notice: These gates would have otherwise belonged to Israel’s “enemies.” Who controls many of these gates today? China. Israel’s enemies are trying to take back the sea gates because they hate Israel!
The modern-day descendants of Abraham are prophesied to lose those sea gates: “And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which the Lord thy God hath given thee” (Deuteronomy 28:52). Our nations trust too much in their own military might, and not in the God who blessed them with sea gates!
Why are America’s and Britain’s sea gates disappearing? “As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the Lord our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth. Therefore hath the Lord watched upon the evil, and brought it upon us: for the Lord our God is righteous in all his works which he doeth: for we obeyed not his voice” (Daniel 9:13-14). God is not happy with Israel in this end time!
God gives us a sign of a coming siege against America! (Ezekiel 4:1-3). China isn’t the only “enemy” making moves against America. The German-led European Union signed a trade deal with Mexico on April 20. We can now see the beginnings of a trade war in which America will be besieged in all its sea gates.
God says He is against Israel in this end time (Ezekiel 13:8). This is the most terrifying prophecy you could ever hear! But God always warns before punishing. He doesn’t want Israel to suffer, but it’s the only way the vast majority of the people will turn to Him. Eight verses in Ezekiel label the suffering as a means of teaching the people about God. They will finally get to know God! That’s the good news.
God will protect a tiny few who do His work today before the return of Jesus Christ (Ezekiel 5:3). It is the job of the Philadelphia Church of God to warn of the coming crisis of crises! Oh, the suffering that will come if the people don’t wake up.Read More
