A reader tipped me off to the following:
China just tested the world’s most powerful naval gun, and US intelligence says it will be ready for warfare by 2025
WASHINGTON — China tested the world’s most powerful naval gun earlier this month, and it is expected to be ready for warfare by 2025, according to people with direct knowledge of a U.S. intelligence report.
China’s railgun was first seen in 2011 and underwent testing in 2014, according to the people, who spoke to CNBC on the condition of anonymity.
Between 2015 and 2017, the weapon was calibrated to strike at extended ranges, increasing its lethality. By December 2017, the weapon was successfully mounted on a warship and began at-sea testing, a feat no other nation has accomplished. The Chinese are expected to complete at-sea testing by 2023. https://www.cnbc.com/2019/01/30/china-naval-gun-ready-for-warfare-by-2025-us-intelligence.html
Developments like this will further shift the focus of the US military towards Asia and less towards Europe. Under the Obama Administration, that was called the ‘Asian pivot’ or ‘pivot towards Asia.’
While this may outwardly look to be the USA’s best approach, according to biblical prophecies it will not work out well for the USA.
The Bible shows that the USA will be taken over by allies/friends:
1 How lonely sits the city That was full of people! How like a widow is she, Who was great among the nations! The princess among the provinces Has become a slave!
2 She weeps bitterly in the night, Her tears are on her cheeks; Among all her lovers She has none to comfort her. All her friends have dealt treacherously with her; They have become her enemies. (Lamentations 1:1-2)
That will be the end of the USA.
The Bible shows that this will happen from a power in Europe:
39 Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain (Daniel 11:39).
The ‘he’ above refers to the European King of the North. The ‘strongest fortresses’ in the 21st century belong to the USA, so this shows that the USA will be defeated, despite its military strength (see also USA in Prophecy: The Strongest Fortresses).
It is not that the Chinese do not have military and other plans (they do), but biblically, they are not prophesied to be the power that eliminated the USA nor its Canadian or UK allies.
That being said, I remain of the view that Australia, and possibly New Zealand, are subject to being taken over by China (watch Are Chinese threats against Australia for real?).
The reason for this is that the King of the North is prophesied to divide and distribute the British and USA dominated lands, and since China has shown real interest in the South Pacific, this seems to be logical and consistent with various prophecies (see also Will the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic Nations be Divided and Have People Taken as Slaves?).
