Euphrates River: Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Iran
                
Before going nuclear, there is a divine rescue. On the 1st of Tishri (Trumpets) in September or October, Jesus Christ grabs His children. The context of the Rapture is the beginnings of the 6th trumpet. Like Noah and Lot, God rescues His people before judgment begins (Luke 17:26-27, 28-29).
        
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).

Two major events occur near the beginning of the Tribulation: China and the Covenant. See Countdown. World War III begins between the 9th of Av  (Kadesh Barnea) and Tabernacles (July-October). The Covenant starts the Tribulation on the 10th of Tishri (Atonement) as the war worsens. The battlefield expands from China to India and Iraq. China's army marches to the Euphrates River and takes control of oil in the Middle East causing the global economy to crash. The US blames China for the disappearance of ~50 million citizens (Rapture). The war goes from tactical nuclear weapons to MAD (Mutual Assured Destruction). China, India and United States sustain the most casualties (~2.5 billion). The 6th trumpet ends 3½ years later in Nisan (April) as the United Kingdom lion, Russian bear and German leopard gives power to the Antichrist (Revelation 11:14; 13:2; 17:12-13).

We are the Bereans, Bible students and watchers. We sound the alarm and proclaim God's Word until He comes. Those awake, watching and expecting our Messiah will be the first to know (Luke 2:25, 36).

If the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand (Ezekiel 33:6).

We are at the end of the Church Age and can see into the Tribulation. It is so close. Seven church periods are finishing, four horses are on the run (apostasy, communism, capitalism, Islam) and five trumpets have sounded (World War I & II, Cold War, Iraq War I & II). So the next big event is the beginnings of the 6th trumpet know as World War III.

End time prophecy follows a simple mathematical equation: A + B = C. A is America, C is Christ and B is the prophetic events that describe the fall of all nations so Jesus Christ reigns. The United States is leader of the black horse of trade; the powerful engine that builds the global economy but eagle's wings are missing (Daniel 7:4, Revelation 13:1-2). Since America falls, what country knocks us down and who takes our place as superpower? Like a row of dominoes, line up nations and events in the proper order and see God plan for His world. See Daniel's Dream.

The sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice ... saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. The four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, day, month, and year to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred million (Revelation 9:13-14, 15-16).
End Times Powers: China, European Union, India, Islam, Russia, United States

The United States is the only superpower. China, European Union, India, Islam and Russia want to replace us. The 6th trumpet is a war that describes a 200 million army that kills a third of humanity (~2.5 billion people). Three powers can assemble such a large army. India has ~1.38 billion people but is not aggressive. Islam, the green horse, has ~1.8 billion people, is aggressive but not united. Russia and radical Islam (Iran, Libya, Turkey, Sudan) fight Israel in Ezekiel 38-39. China with ~1.4 billion people has the army, aggression and plan to become superpower and rule the world. World War III is the 6th trumpet, as China fights the United States.

China is a developing superpower. It is the most populated country, member of the United Nations Security Council, G-20 leading economic countries, BRIC emerging economies and the nuclear club. Their economy is second to the United States. Financial success results in a better standard of living for some citizens but not greater personal liberty. Problems exist with overpopulation, workforce aging and seniors because of the one-child policy.

So I see stiff competition with China. China has an overall goal, and I don't criticize them for the goal, but they have an overall goal to become the leading country in the world, the wealthiest country in the world, and the most powerful country in the world. That's not going to happen on my watch because the United States are going to continue to grow and expand.

China Belt and Road Initiative
China Belt and Road Initiative

A growing Chinese economy invests in debtor nations while improving missiles, satellites and cyber warfare. China's Belt and Road Initiative builds roads, rails and sea ports in 70 countries. The "string of pearls" controls choke points of Panama and Suez canals with ports along Africa to South East Asia. This is a direct threat to India and United States. The military builds islands in the South China Sea. With an expanding economy, they are more dependent on oil from Iran, Iraq, Russia and Saudi Arabia.

China never lets a good crisis go to waste. They devalue the yuan to manipulate their currency. This increases exports to America and limits imports to China. Greedy corporations search for new markets and cheap labor but China takes their technology and censors negative media. Huawei 5G telecom was banned in the US because of national security issues. China steals trade secrets, intellectual property, while hacking governments and corporations. They started the coronavirus pandemic, influenced the World Health Organization while covering up the disease. China is a much bigger threat to the United States than Russia or Islamic terrorism.

While the United States military shows weakness, China fights to control the world. Except for the collapse of the Roman Empire, war always precedes a change of superpower. The trade war of Southeast Asia grows into a hot war between the red horse of China and the black horses of the United States, India, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. Revelation 9 describes the end of the Church Age and the first war of the Tribulation. The red dragon army crosses the Euphrates River.
