Bible prophecy is being fulfilled right before our eyes.

Consider Revelation 9:16-17 “I heard the size of their army, which was 200 million mounted troops. And in my vision, I saw the horses and the riders sitting on them. The riders wore armor that was fiery red and dark blue and yellow. The horses had heads like lions, and fire and smoke and burning sulfur billowed from their mouths.

At the time of this writing, China has available 749,610,775 men and women that can be drafted in a moment’s notice. Each year 19,538,534 Chinese citizens reach military age. At present, there are 2,333,000 frontline military personnel with another 2,300,000 active reserves. A major limiting factor against Chinese military dominance is an inadequate oil supply to fuel the factories, tanks, transports, ships, and planes the country would need to conquer the Middle East.

Would not a direct route to the Strait of Hormuz be a practical way to assure adequate oil for Western China? So it is the Chinese government is “investing” in Pakistan and Afghanistan to build rail lines, hydro-electric power supplies and overland roads. Hydro-electric energy would power the proposed railroad. This overland route will also minimize the risks posed by imported oil having to pass through two hazardous straits, the Strait of Hormuz and the Strait of Malacca. Approximately half of the entire world’s oil production moves through oil transit chokepoints, most of it going to the east coast of China.

Do you know we built a network of pipelines between Texas and New York during WW2 to prevent losses from German submarines? Those two huge pipelines were called, “The Big Inch Pipelines”.

On another front, is the Yiwu-Madrid rail line running from the city of Yiwu south of Shanghai all the way to Madrid via Moscow. This route became active December 9, 2014. This new railroad is a twenty-first century reconstruct of the old Silk Road. More cargo shipped at lower cost will realize the capital needed for the construction of other military facilities.

Revelation 16:12 “And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.”

Naturally, Obama will welcome Chinese peace-keeping in Afghanistan and Pakistan; China will absolutely own those two countries and our role in the Middle East will effectively be over.

Truly, we are inching toward Armageddon.
