Bible Prophecy Commentary – World Powers and War?
Some global superpowers are saying and doing some strange things these days … what could it all mean? Could the “great sword” reference in Rev 6:4, mean nuclear weapons? Tensions are rising and it seems nations are lining up for some very difficult days ahead both for the world and for Israel.
China steps up and is becoming bolder in the global stage of a military superpower. They have already surpassed us in becoming the world’s largest economy. What’s next?
They may represent the Kings of the East as it is written in Bible Prophecy – Rev 16. They may lead a coalition or be the coalition – this is unknown at this point but with their military now growing by leaps and bounds, China will be a major player in end time prophecy. And Iran …? An upcoming nuclear threat/power and an extremely dangerous player putting at risk the peace in the Middle East. Look out for these guys as they seem to only want to destroy; especially Israel and the Jews.
Russia… A major player with a major military complete with a huge arsenal of nuclear weapons and delivery methods. These guys aren’t playing around and they don’t back down. Watch them? They could ignite all kinds of mayhem if pushed too far, especially now with the Western sanctions biting heavily into their economy.
And Egypt…? They may represent the King of the South which will come against the Antichrist as paralleled in Dan 11:40ff. But in the article above an Israeli representative says that the exercise that Egypt held recently was meant to prepare for “a potential conflict with Israel.” That’s very concerning. Egypt has a sizable military force – 468k active frontline personnel compared with Israel’s 176k force. Yet we know that Almighty God is with Israel and has fought along side them in all their wars since becoming a nation in 1948.

RED HORSE – Second Seal – WARS and REMOVAL of PEACE, GREAT SWORD!!
“And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.” -Rev 6: 3-4 (KJV)
