The sixth angel blew his trumpet. From the four horns of the gold altar that is before God, I heard a voice say to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels bound at the great river Euphrates.”

So the four angels who were prepared for the hour, day, month, and year were released to kill a third of the human race. The number of mounted troops was 200 million; I heard their number.

This is how I saw the horses in my vision: The horsemen had breastplates that were fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow. The heads of the horses were like lions’ heads, and from their mouths came fire, smoke, and sulfur.

A third of the human race was killed by these three plagues—by the fire, the smoke, and the sulfur that came from their mouths. For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails, for their tails, which resemble snakes, have heads, and they inflict injury with them. (Revelation 9:13-19)

Weapons Displayed at China’s Military Parade Should Be a Wake-Up Call to US / The Daily Signal, October 15, 2019

China celebrated the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China on Oct. 1 in typical fashion—with a military parade. Some of the new weapons on display that day provide cause for serious concern among U.S. policymakers.

China showcased its new stealthy bat-winged unmanned aerial vehicle—the Gongji-11. But more significantly, it displayed the new road-mobile DF-41 intercontinental ballistic missile and its submarine-launched ballistic missile, the JL-2.

The DF-41 ICBMs are capable of striking the United States while carrying multiple nuclear warheads.

The U.S., meanwhile, depends on nuclear delivery platforms that are in some cases 30-40 years old. China is nearly done with an across-the-board modernization of all its platforms. The U.S. does not even have a mobile intercontinental ballistic missile.

But that’s not the worst of it.

The starkest example of China’s new capabilities was its unveiling of its DF-17 hypersonic glide vehicle. These vehicles are capable of traveling at least five times the speed of sound (greater than Mach 5).

They use a standard ballistic missile booster at the outset but become a low-flying projectile for their second stage. They can be used to hit a target after the first stage’s ballistic reentry. Hypersonic glide vehicles are especially problematic because they are difficult to detect and defend against.

China Has ‘First-Strike’ Capability To Melt U.S. Power Grid With Electromagnetic Pulse
Weapon / Forbes, June 25, 2020

Last week, the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security issued a scary report on China’s ability to conduct an Electromagnetic Pulse attack on the United States. The key takeaway, according to Dr. Peter Pry, executive director of the task force, is that China now has super-EMP weapons, knows how to protect itself against an EMP attack, and has developed protocols to conduct a first-strike attack, even as they deny they would ever do so.

super-electromagnetic pulse weapon

According to the Center for Strategic International Studies, China has the most active ballistic missile development program in the world, so this is doubly troubling. China used stolen U.S. technology to develop at least three types of high-tech weapons to attack the electric grid and key technologies that could cause a surprise “Pearl Harbor” attack that could produce a deadly blackout to the entire country.

Dr. Pry outlines how China has built a network of satellites, high-speed missiles, and super-electromagnetic pulse weapons that could melt down our electric grid, fry critical communications, and even takeout the ability of our aircraft carrier groups to respond.

EMPs are one of those things that many people think is fake, or over-blown, or a conspiracy theorist’s dream. But they are real. EMPs can be either natural, from things like extreme solar geomagnetic disturbances, or man-made like a large thermonuclear detonation or a cyberattack. If they are coordinated with physical attacks then things can get real dicey real fast.


Not coincidentally, China has rolled out a number of other new military capabilities, designed to protect their new expansionist future.

Chinas new DF-21D ballistic missile

Included in their burgeoning array is a new generation of nuclear submarines, a carrier-killing missile named DF-21D, intended specifically to destroy aircraft carriers, and new rocket launch vehicles, like the Long March 6 rocket capable of carrying 20 warheads, that just went into space last month to deploy 20 satellites in orbit.

To understand what drives China today, it is necessary to have at least an overview of the history of the country.

China’s historical civilization dates from at least 1200 B.C.; from the 3rd century B.C. and for the next two millennia, China alternated between periods of unity and disunity under a succession of imperial dynasties.

history of china ani

In the 19th and early 20th centuries, the country was beset by civil unrest, major famines, military defeats, and foreign occupation. After World War II, the Chinese Communist Party under MAO Zedong established an autocratic socialist system that, while ensuring China’s sovereignty, imposed strict controls over everyday life and cost the lives of tens of millions of people.

• 1949: People’s Republic of China – After a violent end stage to the civil war, the Communist Party declared the People’s Republic of China. Two months later, two million soldiers followed Chiang Kai-shek into exile to Taiwan where he set up a provisional government claiming to be the legitimate ruling body of China. Communist party chairman Mao Zedong became China’s new leader.

• 1958-1962: The Great Leap Forward – This campaign by Chairman Mao to transform the agricultural base of China’s society into an industrial one imposed a commune system that organized peasants and forbade private farming. The plan failed to produce the necessary yield, and famine followed, leading to 56 million deaths, including 3 million by suicide.


• 1966: The Cultural Revolution – This campaign was initiated by Chairman Mao to erase Capitalist and traditional Chinese influences of the People’s Republic and introduce the philosophy of Maoism to fill the ideological gaps. Schools were closed and Chinese youth directed to take the lead in change, resulting in youth gangs known as the Red Guards attacking undesirable citizens. Chaos led to martial law, Communist Party purges, and 1.5 million deaths.

Cultural Revolution ani

• September 9, 1976: Mao dies – Mao’s death after several heart attacks effectively ends the Cultural Revolution and brought Deng Xiaoping to power for the next two decades, pushing out Mao’s inner circle known as the Gang of Four. China was poor, reclusive and isolated. Supplies of basic commodities were so tight that ration coupons were distributed. At the time, more than 88 percent of its population lived on less than US$2 a day. By the end of his reign, Mao would oversee the slaughter of some 40 million people.

After 1978, Mao’s successor Deng Xiaoping and other leaders focused on market-oriented economic development and by 2000 output had quadrupled. For much of the population, living standards have improved dramatically but political controls remain tight. Since the early 1990s, China has increased its global outreach and participation in international organizations.


• 1989: Tiananmen Square protests – These student-led protests grew from the ’89 Democracy Movement demanding freedom of speech, freedom of the press and more. They gained worldwide attention when the government violently cracked down on the protesters and images of tanks rolling into students inspired universal condemnation. At least 300 died in the protests.

• July 1, 1997: Hong Kong returns to China – In a midnight ceremony with British Prime Minister Tony Blair in attendance, Hong Kong was given back to China after 156 years. China agreed to preserve the island’s capitalist economy as part of the handover agreement.

China new national security law for Hong Kong

In what the Economist dubbed “one of the biggest assaults on a liberal society since the Second World War,” China implemented a sweeping, new national security law for Hong Kong on midnight Tuesday. “Overnight, Hong Kong’s 7.5 million residents were put under the same speech restrictions as the mainland, with possible life imprisonment for those deemed guilty of subversion — a standard charge used to jail political dissidents and human rights activists in China,” my colleagues reported.

Hong Kong’s diminishment may be worth the cost for Beijing, which can count on global business regardless and attract investors to gleaming megacities such as Shenzhen and Shanghai. But it may also serve the interests of the more radical set of Hong Kong’s protesters, who see the impossible odds of confronting the leviathan in Beijing yet still want to intensify the showdown.

Leviathan ani

How did China fall so far, to become a nation of mass murder? Behind the veneer of “Socialism with Chinese characteristics” the Chinese nation has been guided by the Dragon:

We call ourselves descendants of the dragon

Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan invited US President Donald Trump and his wife Melania Trump to the Palace Museum, also known as the Forbidden City, after the US president started his state visit to China on Wednesday afternoon. During the tour, Xi briefed the visiting couple on the history, architecture and culture of the museum, noting its importance to Chinese history and culture. Xi said that “Chinese civilization is a unique lasting culture in the world that passed down through generations consistently.” Xi added, “We call ourselves descendants of the dragon.”


The Chinese dragon, also known as Long or Lung, are legendary creatures in Chinese mythology, Chinese folklore, and culture at large. The dragon is a symbol of power, strength, and good luck for people who are worthy of it in East Asian culture. During the days of Imperial China, the Emperor of China usually used the dragon as a symbol of his imperial strength and power.

Emperor wearing a dragon robe

In Chinese culture, excellent and outstanding people are compared to a dragon, while incapable people with no achievements are compared to other, disesteemed creatures, such as a worm. A number of Chinese proverbs and idioms feature references to a dragon, such as “Hoping one’s son will become a dragon.”

The coiled dragon or snake form played an important role in early Chinese culture. But, the Holy Bible reveals the Dragon (or serpent) as being the ultimate evil:


Now the serpent was the most cunning of all the wild animals that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You can’t eat from any tree in the garden’?”

 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit from the trees in the garden.  But about the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden, God said, ‘You must not eat it or touch it, or you will die.’”

 “No! You will not die,” the serpent said to the woman.  “In fact, God knows that when you eat it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

 Then the Lord God said to the serpent:

Because you have done this,
you are cursed more than any livestock
and more than any wild animal.
You will move on your belly
and eat dust all the days of your life.
I will put hostility between you and the woman,
and between your seed and her seed.
He will strike your head,
and you will strike his heel. (Genesis 3:1-5, 14-15)

How is the leadership of the Dragon (Chinese socialism) working out for their people?

China has millions of people living below the poverty line

China has millions of people living below the poverty line. This is a clear indication of the income inequality in this country. In addition, almost 500 million live on less than $2 per day. Among the poor, 85% live in rural areas with a bigger population residing in the western part of the country.

The wealth gap means the levels of poverty are high and severe in China. In fact, the country’s ministry of health claims that up to 200 million Chinese peasants struggle with occupational ailments. Considering China’s population, these statistics hint that the economy is not as accommodative as it may appear. Though the Chinese economy has recorded some growth in the past, the effect of this growth only benefits a small portion of the population.

Under the Communist dragon, millions of Chinese suffer in the socialist Utopia:

one child policy

China cuts Uighur births with IUDs, abortion, sterilization / The Associated Press, June 28, 2020

The Chinese government is taking draconian measures to slash birth rates among Uighurs and other minorities as part of a sweeping campaign to curb its Muslim population, even as it encourages some of the country’s Han majority to have more children.

While individual women have spoken out before about forced birth control, the practice is far more widespread and systematic than previously known, according to an AP investigation based on government statistics, state documents and interviews with 30 ex-detainees, family members and a former detention camp instructor. The campaign over the past four years in the far west region of Xinjiang is leading to what some experts are calling a form of “demographic genocide.”

The state regularly subjects minority women to pregnancy checks, and forces intrauterine devices, sterilization and even abortion on hundreds of thousands, the interviews and data show. Even while the use of IUDs and sterilization has fallen nationwide, it is rising sharply in Xinjiang.

The population control measures are backed by mass detention both as a threat and as a punishment for failure to comply. Having too many children is a major reason people are sent to detention camps, the AP found, with the parents of three or more ripped away from their families unless they can pay huge fines. Police raid homes, terrifying parents as they search for hidden children.

In other efforts to change the population balance of Xinjiang, China is dangling land, jobs and economic subsidies to lure Han migrants there. It is also aggressively promoting intermarriage between Han Chinese and Uighurs, with one couple telling the AP they were given money for housing and amenities like a washing machine, refrigerator and TV.

“It links back to China’s long history of dabbling in eugenics….you don’t want people who are poorly educated, marginal minorities breeding quickly,” said James Leibold, a specialist in Chinese ethnic policy at La Trobe in Melbourne. “What you want is your educated Han to increase their birth rate.”

The concept of “prison” has changed enormously in the last decade, as China’s ancient totalitarian impulse, the absolute rule of the god-emperor over his subjects, is brought into the modern age.

China’s already formidable police state has been upgraded using big data, machine learning, face recognition technology and artificial intelligence into a fearsome cyborg of state control. The Chinese Communist Party has given birth to the world’s first high-tech digital dictatorship. China has always been the leader in Global Government, with their failed One Child Policy and their new Social Credit System.


Right at this moment, the Dragon, his angels, and his human agents are using China to help destroy all of the Christians there – the Lord’s seed. They are following a One World Plan that will make it impossible to survive as a Christian. The Plan has always been to “devour” the Christian offspring – through abortion, war, imprisonment, martyrdom, debt slavery, and any other method that will kill, steal or destroy.

Then they will hand you over for persecution, and they will kill you. You will be hated by all nations because of My name. (Matthew 24:9)

China has seen a sharp increase in government opposition to religion, including Christianity, as the Chinese government has destroyed crosses, burned Bibles, closed churches, and is forcing believers to sign papers renouncing their faith in Beijing and several other provinces, demanding loyalty to the atheist Communist party in power.

The local officials in various provinces of China routinely raid the homes and churches of Christians who are seeking to peacefully practice their faith. More and more Christians are forced to practice their faith in secret.


Toward the end of the 7 year Tribulation, in the Bowl judgments, the vast Chinese army is driven to Armagedon, along with all of the World’s armies:

The sixth poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the east. Then I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming from the dragon’s mouth, from the beast’s mouth, and from the mouth of the false prophet. For they are spirits of demons performing signs, who travel to the kings of the whole world to assemble them for the battle of the great day of God, the Almighty.

“Look, I am coming like a thief. The one who is alert and remains clothed so that he may not go around naked and people see his shame is blessed.”

So they assembled them at the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon. (Revelation 16:12-16)

So they assembled them at the place called in Hebrew Armagedon

Unbelievably, the demonized armies stop fighting each other and begin to fight the Lord and the armies of Heaven. Their destruction is swift:

Then I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies gathered together to wage war against the rider on the horse and against His army. But the beast was taken prisoner, and along with him the false prophet, who had performed the signs in his presence. He deceived those who accepted the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image with these signs. Both of them were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur. The rest were killed with the sword that came from the mouth of the rider on the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh. (Revelation 19:19-21)

Armageddon ani

The fate of the Dragon is detailed in Revelation 20:

Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven with the key to the abyss and a great chain in his hand. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for 1,000 years. He threw him into the abyss, closed it, and put a seal on it so that he would no longer deceive the nations until the 1,000 years were completed. After that, he must be released for a short time. (Revelation 20:1-3)

With the rise of China, along with all of the other End Times signs, it is obvious that time is running out for planet Earth. It is time for the grand harvest!

Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession.

Monday – Tokyo, Japan
Tuesday – Shanghai, China
Wednesday – Dhaka, Bangladesh
Thursday – Delhi, India
Friday – Sao Paulo, Brazil
Saturday – Mexico City, Mexico
Sunday – New York-Newark, US.

There are millions of people in these 7 mega-cities that need Jesus as Savior and Lord.  Pray for the Word of God to go forth and then the Hand of God through the Holy Spirit to move on individual lives to bring about the GREAT END TIME HARVEST!  How wonderful to be a part of this WONDER-FULL ministry!


Jesus said:

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20)

* Pray for His Light to emanate throughout each province to bring about His accomplished Word!!!

* Pray that His breath blows and ignites the flames of the Holy Spirit through the hearts of men, women, and children!!!

* Pray for your angels to be released to do the warfare in the heavens to bring about the will of the Lord through the prayers of the saints!!!

Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!
(John 4:34-35)


Ask of Me, and I will give You
The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession. (Psalms 2:8)

Now is the time to repent, before it is too late:

Come, let us return to the Lord.
For He has torn us,
and He will heal us;
He has wounded us,
and He will bind up our wounds.
He will revive us after two days,
and on the third day He will raise us up
so we can live in His presence. (Hosea 6:1-2)


If you are not sure that you are saved, you can accept Christ into your life right now, by praying:

“Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins.  Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life.  I ask you in to my life and heart to be my Lord and Savior.”

The “dragon” represents the government, but the “TIGER” represents the MILITARY. — Scripture cites CHINA as a “leopard” because in Daniel’s day the world had not expanded far enough East to discover the “Tiger”. So where Daniel saw a VERTICALLY marked cat (the TIGER), his only nearest identity was a CIRCULARLY marked cat (the LEOPARD). And thus the confusion between what Daniel SAW versus what he could describe. So to clarify any “confusion”, he (that is to say that GOD) provided additional depictions, both in the Book of Daniel and in the Book of Revelation, so that we might FULLY UNDERSTAND:

When you read Dan. 7, you should find a Leopard (actually a TIGER, — as proposed above) which has FOUR HEADS, which are their FOUR Branches of Government:
State Administrative Council (civilian government)
People’s Revolutionary Military Council (top army command)
Supreme People’s Court (the judicial branch)
Supreme Officer of Prosecution (law enforcement).[1]

… and FOUR WINGS, which are China’s FOUR MODERNIZATIONS, that have propelled China into the Global Market:
Science & Technology
National Defense* [2]
* Technically “National Defense” is a sub-set of “Science & Technology”, but Premier Chou En-lai chose to make the MILITARY a Separate and Distinct category as stipulated in his 1975 speech to the “Fourth National People’s Congress”.​

[1] Willy Draus, Economic Development and Social Change in the People’s Republic of China, Springer-Verlag, N.Y., NY, 1982, p. 28
[2] Richard Baum, China’s Four Modernizations: The New Technological Revolution, Westview Press, Boulder, CO, 1980, p. 18

So now when you read Rev. 13, you should be able to CONFIRM the Dan. 7 DEPICTIONS:
The Lion is the MOUTH, because the U.K./U.S. have proficiency in Science, Technology, Trade, and Finance
The Leopard (actually a TIGER) is the BODY, because China has the World’s Largest Population
The Bear is the FEET, because Russia has the World’s Largest Land Mass (some 8M sq. miles versus some 3M each for Canada, the U.S., and China)

But unfortunately most people don’t have a sufficient grasp of Scripture and History to arrive to the TRUTH of a matter, so it takes some “coaching” to help them catch up!

Support Our Work!

Your contributions will directly help this web-based ministry to reach thousands of individuals around the world – literally the “ends of the earth” – for Jesus Christ.

For this is what the Lord has commanded us:

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. (Acts 1:8)


Eagles Arise International Ministries is a Christian, mission-centered enterprise. Through the Rapture and End Times website, we provide eschatology-related information to a global community.

Each day, millions around the world turn to the internet for answers to their spiritual questions. They’re looking for truth, for something to fill the emptiness within. They ask questions like: ‘Am I loved?’ ‘Is there a God?’ ‘What’s my purpose in life?’

is there a god ani

Think about all the money it costs to put on a mass evangelism event like a Billy Graham crusade. You have to rent a stadium, advertise your event, and hire people to help you setup and tear down. Plus, you’ll need to coordinate hundreds of volunteers to help.

But, even people in poverty-stricken countries can now afford a relatively cheap phone or tablet. The thing is that whether they buy an expensive product or a cheap one, all these devices are capable of giving a digital presentation of the gospel.

When Jesus gave the commandment, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation,’ the disciples were on foot. There was no television, no radio, no airplanes, and certainly no internet. What a difference 2,000 years can make! Or for that matter, 10 years. Today, more and more people are coming to faith in Christ by logging onto the World Wide Web.

The internet may be the greatest tool that God has ever given the church to help take the Gospel to the ends of the earth. Internet evangelism is strategically using internet, mobile, and social media platforms to meet the needs of others and share the Gospel with the online world.

With internet evangelism, we share the Good News 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We meet people in their moment of need with the hope of Jesus Christ.

start a blog

Through online ministry, our mission field is expanding to reach people we might never reach in person. They need to know that Jesus Christ is the only One who gives us true purpose and fulfills our greatest need.

We are independent and can’t be cancelled. The need for fact-based Biblical analysis with an international perspective on critical events has never been greater. When you support Rapture and End Times, you support Christian freedom of expression at a time when it’s under direct attack.

As you know, time is running out. We have a unique opportunity to preach online now. No one knows how long that access will last. 44,000 people perish each day without hearing the Good News. Help us to reach them now, before it is eternally too late!
