Dear Friends,

The Kings of the East.
The previous Sabbath Message dealt with the sequence of events from the 117th Jubilee in 1886-7 dealing with the build up to the wars of the end.  Those dates and sequence are being added to the text of the paper Outline Timetable of the Age (No. 272). This message and paper deals with the development of the wars in the East over Asia and the Pacific and the lead up to the move against Messiah in the Middle East by these armies of the Kings of the East. The Chinese Communist party and the People’s Liberation Army are preparing for a series of wars of reclamation.  Their propaganda organs are publishing the likely plans of the sequence and the timings of these wars of reclamation.  The Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) blog The Strategist has published (26 Nov 2013) an article on those perceived necessary wars by Geoff Wade, visiting fellow of the College of Asia and the Pacific of the ANU, to that effect. The PLA are dealing with a likely 50 year plan for these wars and the published areas of reclamation are enough to make the entire Asia and the Pacific feel somewhat nervous. One could observe it is just like it was in pre-WWI, and we have observed that is so in the West and it seems that these Eastern nations are also bumbling along to chaos from China to Japan to the Koreas and to India and Pakistan and South East Asia. Indonesia is building up at a faster rate than ever in its entire history.

Geoff Wade says: “A more troubling example of irredentism can be seen in an article which appeared on the website of the Chinese news agency Zhongguo Xinwenshe (Chinese, English translation here) in July this year. Entitled ‘Revealing the Six Wars China Must Fight in the Coming 50 Years’ (曝光中国在未来50年里必打的六场战争), the article is another manifestation of the hyper-nationalist attitude seen within some parts of the PLA. However, that an article of this nature was carried by a PRC national news agency suggests that it was approved at a very high level. The six ‘inevitable’ wars suggested in the article’s title are presented in the chronological order in which they will take place:

Claims to Taiwan have been a part of PRC policy since 1949, and military action has never been ruled out, but a specific timetable for such action has never been suggested. In a remarkable coincidence, the Taiwan military has just announced that the PRC will have the military capacity to take Taiwan by 2020. In terms of a South China Sea war, little imagination is needed to see the current argy-bargy in the region extending into a military conflict. Regarding the third proposed war, China’s claims to the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh (PDF) have been a thorn in China-India relations for decades, but the extent of Chinese claims over Tibetan cultural areas in the Himalayas remains unspecified.”
The 2020 date would involve the Taiwanese alliances anyway but it will happen before then. We will see from the 1938 map published by China below that the areas claimed extend far beyond China’s boundaries and include all of Tibet and the area of northern India with the states from Southern Tibet all the way east to the Malay Peninsular and right up to the islands in the East China Sea in current dispute with Japan and all the way around Japan and including the Russian territories in dispute with Japan and into the Russian and Mongolian territories themselves. China will extend these territories into Indonesia in accordance with their claims under the Yuan dynasty as we saw in the text in Mysticism (Mysticism Chapter 8 East Asia - China and Japan (No. B7_8); Mysticism Chapter 9 South East Asian Systems (No. B7_9)).

The time frame of 50 years is unfortunately far too extended as Bible prophecy tells us. Revelation 16:12 shows us that the drying up of the Euphrates system is preparatory to the coming of the Kings of the East over them on the march to Jerusalem. These armies are to be brought down to Armageddon to be destroyed.  They will come down after Messiah destroys the forces of the Kings of the North at his return.  Thus if the six thousand year structure, under the 120 jubilees from the closure of Eden, is the time frame, then they have to be brought down from the destruction of the king of the North, as we see from Daniel 11:40-45. The war of the end under Messiah is prophesied from Daniel 12:1-3 as follows.

Dan. 11 [40] "At the time of the end the king of the south shall attack him; but the king of the north shall rush upon him like a whirlwind, with chariots and horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall come into countries and shall overflow and pass through. [41] He shall come into the glorious land. And tens of thousands shall fall, but these shall be delivered out of his hand: Edom and Moab and the main part of the Ammonites. [42] He shall stretch out his hand against the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape. [43] He shall become ruler of the treasures of gold and of silver, and all the precious things of Egypt; and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall follow in his train. [44] But tidings from the east and the north shall alarm him, and he shall go forth with great fury to exterminate and utterly destroy many. [45] And he shall pitch his palatial tents between the sea and the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, with none to help him.

Note in the sequence the King of the North is forced to occupy and fight wars with the Middle East system but then he is alarmed by news from the East and the North and then goes out to utterly destroy many.  The War of the Fifth Trumpet forces the NATO forces to occupy the Middle East.  However the military alliances of Russia and China drag them into the War of the End or WWIII. This is the War of the Sixth Trumpet which kills a third of mankind.  It is all out thermonuclear war. China has been called into this by its alliances, and as a result of its agreements the six wars it sees as necessary will be achieved by consensus in the reorganization and the rapid and escalating wars. With the destruction of the King of the North by Messiah they are then forced to either capitulate or fight.  They were allowed to reorganise by the King of the North in the conflicts at the end of the Sixth Trumpet but they were dependent on the King of the North for so-called world peace. The time frame of the wars before Messiah are as follows.  Between 2014-2015 NATO is forced to occupy the Middle East in the nations listed from 11:40-43. Russia, with the complicity of China, forces the escalation of the War of the Fifth Trumpet which is a biochemical war into the release of the Four Angels at the Euphrates from Tartaros for this final phase. In this war a third of mankind are killed. The destruction is so great that Christ is then sent back as we have examined in the paper Advent of the Messiah (No. 210A).

Dan.12 [1] "At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time; but at that time your people shall be delivered, every one whose name shall be found written in the book (RSV).

Then the sequences of the First and Second Resurrection will be set in motion:
[2] And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. [3] And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.

From the First Resurrection we see the elect put together in Jerusalem and then Christ having destroyed the Antichrist, and the False Prophet brings the Forces of the North or NATO down to Armageddon in the valley of the splitting of the Mount of Olives. This sequence begins the Vials of the Wrath of God (see the paper Wars of the Last Days and the Vials of the Wrath of God (No. 141B)). The alliance of the Kings of the East would be reorganised under the Beast Power after their defeat by NATO in the War of the Sixth Trumpet as were the old Soviet systems. This was prior to the Witnesses being sent by God to Jerusalem.  They preached for 1260 days and then were killed and allowed to lie in the streets for 3.5 days and then were resurrected at the advent of the Messiah (see the paper The Witnesses (including the Two Witnesses (No. 135)). At this time Michael shall take charge with the shout of the Archangel and the sound of the Trumpet and the war machines of these nations will be systematically destroyed and subjugated.  All the NATO forces and its financial systems and its religious structure will be destroyed. The entire North American military systems will be destroyed. 

The Kings of the East.
Just who are they? They are every military power in the Asia Pacific Region.

The North Koreans may well force a conflict as a result of the rise of the military power of the generals under Kim Jong-un. The shock caused by the execution of Chang Song-thaek (and the arrest and future execution of many of the family of this uncle of Kim Jong–un) contrary to ancient Confucian ideals has given rise to speculation, re Kim’s wife and serious unrest. The South Korean intelligence system is expecting a military action before April 2014. This may well precipitate, through this bumbling ineptitude, the wars in the East as it did in the West a century before it. The security zone imposed over the Japanese claimed islands may have the same effect. So also the conflicts with Vietnam and the Philippines in the South China Sea, which may well bring in India.  The Islamic conflicts would cause Chinese involvement from the Russian alliance with Iran and Syria and the Chinese Alliance with Pakistan causing a conflict of interest with Saudi Arabia. From Passover 2014 the military actions will continue to escalate both in the West and in the East.

Every single military power on the planet will be annihilated if not before then finally at Armageddon (see the paper War of Hamon-Gog (No. 294) as well as the Wars of the Last Days and the Vials of the Wrath of God (No. 141b) above).  The nation of Israel and the nations that are part of its federation through Jordan and Lebanon and Syria and Southern Iraq will establish a regional clean-up squad and they will spend seven months burying the dead and then seven years with a designated branch that continues burying those found and the refuse.  The materials and supplies will provide metals and supplies for the federation of Israel and allied nations for years to come. None of these things need to happen.  Not one single nation of the Kings of the East needs to be destroyed with their armies. They simply have to repent but they do not.  The Hindus and Buddhists and Animists and those Muslims that do not understand the Koran, and the Talmudic Judaisers, and the Mariolaters and Sun cult worshippers in the Trinitarian system not destroyed in Europe will all be dealt with and subjugated. The beings of the First Resurrection of the Great Multitude will be sent out to the nations of the world. They will destroy every religious system on this planet and restore the Laws of God and the Sabbaths, New Moons and Feasts and will enforce them on pain of death (Isa. 66:23; Zech 14:16-19). This is Scripture and Scripture cannot be broken.

The restoration of Israel will be effected by a massive Exodus greater than that from Egypt. They will be identified and sent to Israel by all conveyances, on horses and chariots and wagons and by every means to re-establish their clans and people (Isa. 66:15-23). Every nation will send its representatives to the Temple which will be rebuilt at Jerusalem and they will worship there at the Feast and take their instructions back to each nation when they have finished at the Temple. There will be no more war for a thousand years from 2025 to the release of Satan from 3019 for the final conflict and the Second Resurrection of the Dead. (See the paper Second Resurrection of the Dead and the Great White Throne Judgment (No. 143B).)

As Geoff Wade says: “None of the above wars are endorsed by current PRC policies, and some Chinese claim that the article represents only the views of radical hyper-nationalists. However, the claims to territories which this article avers need to be ‘recovered’ through warfare are long-standing and are remarkably congruent with a 1938 map of ‘China’s shame’ authorised by the Ministry of the Interior of the Republican Government which shows the areas torn from China by imperialists—European and Japanese. (See map below) The ‘lost’ Chinese territories on this map include not only the Russian Far East, the Ryukyus, Taiwan and the South China Sea, but also Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, the Malay Peninsula and Singapore, Myanmar, Nepal, parts of Pakistan and most of Central Asia.”  Enough to make us all worry is it not?
