Response to Re: Is China a threat to PNG and the Pacific Islands?
This rise and fall of all the world empires were foretold in the Bible. Even US`s rise as a super power was foretold.
Since the 70s-80s Bible schorlars have always mantained that the last super power will be China. This was because after studying the decription of the last army which will march across the Eurphrates river into the Gulf for the battle of Armegedon fits China. The main question has always been how a big army will move across the Eurphrates river because at that time there was no way to cross easily into the Gulf from China. However, now it is possible with a construction and completion of a dam by China across the mighty Eurphrates. Now the possibility of a large army such as China`s can moving on land into the Gulf, the hottest conflict area on this planet excists.
Babylone (morden day Iraq) was once the centre of the world before the Roman empire. It is also written that Babylone will once again be the focus of the world in the end times.
just my personal thoughts.
