Matthew 24:6-8 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Mark 13:7-8 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.

Wars, Rumours and Threats; US-China warning: Trump heading to ‘point of no return’ as experts ring war alarm bells
US-CHINA tensions could develop into a full military confrontation as Donald Trump and Xi Jinping head for the “point of no return”, expert Sanam Shantyaei warned.

The USA and China have been engaged in a battle of words since President Donald Trump entered office in 2016, with the skirmish quickly developing into a bitter trade war. Both countries issued a series of economic sanctions on the other but experts have voiced concerns the growing divide could ultimately result in an open military confrontation. France 24 international desk reporter Sanam Shantyaei said: “There are concerns the two powers are reaching what we refer to as a point of no return.
“That there is a complete deterioration of relations between the two and that might even lead to, and that’s the worst case scenario, military confrontation. Conflict.”
She continued: “This is an era that’s very much being shaped by voices from the most hawkish of personalities in both administrations.
“We have seen that play out on a much smaller scale, when we saw the crackdown on Chinese journalists in the US in a tit for tat move. Of course, we saw the expulsion of American journalists from China so we know how this plays out.
“Observers are saying that the United States has the power at this point in time to moderate, to reform the behaviour of China both at home and abroad.
“To try to bring China so that it’s actually cooperating on massive regional issues.”
Ms Shantyaei added: “North Korea, Afghanistan, even global issues like climate change, non-proliferation.
“But people inside Beijing, and I spoke to one observer earlier, are saying that won’t be the case because the US is threatened by China’s rise as a major world power.
“Don’t forget both the IMF and the World Bank could overtake the US as the global economy by as soon as 2024.”
US President Donald Trump has been heavily critical of China throughout the coronavirus crisis, going as far as suggesting an investigation should be launched on the role Chinese laboratories played in the pandemic.
Mr Trump also had his Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announce last week the US would put an end to its policy of neutrality when it comes to Beijing’s claims on the South China Sea.
China has long tried to stake its claim on the region despite several Southeast Asia nations insisting Beijing has no territorial control in the area.
Secretary Pompeo said: “The world will not allow Beijing to treat the South China Sea as its maritime empire.
“America stands with our Southeast Asian allies and partners in protecting their sovereign rights to offshore resources, consistent with their rights and obligations under international law.”
It comes as reports from China suggest Xi Jinping is now considering proposals for a new aircraft-carrier type ship with a landing strip and multiple aircraft on deck after a design of the project was submitted by China Shipbuilding Group – the Chinese Communist Party’s main contractor for warships.
Naval commentator Li Jie told the South China Morning Most the ship could be used to push back against “territorial challenges from rival claimants” across the South China Sea
