Increasing Threats and Rumours of Wars; China war fears: US risks fury with Beijing as bombers perform drills in show of strength. THE US Air Force has sent bomber jets to perform missions over the Sea of Japan as military tensions with China continue to soar.

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.

1 Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

Increasing Threats and Rumours of Wars; China war fears: US risks fury with Beijing as bombers perform drills in show of strength. THE US Air Force has sent bomber jets to perform missions over the Sea of Japan as military tensions with China continue to soar.

Four American B-1 Lancers, two B-2 Spirit Stealth Bombers and four F-15C Eagles were deployed to Japanese territory amid a tense period of sharply deteriorating relations between Beijing and the US. The Pacific Air Forces said in a statement it “routinely conducts Bomber Task Force operations to show the United States’ commitment to allies and partners in the Indo-Pacific area of responsibility”.

The countries participating have raised concerns about China’s attempts to push its control over waterways and critical routes.

General Ken Wilsbach, Pacific Air Forces commander, added: “Our unique strength as an air force is our ability to generate integrated actions with our joint teammates and allies and partners to challenge competitors in a time and place of our choosing.”

It comes as tension in the region increases as Beijing and Washington conduct separate military drills in the resource-rich South China Sea as relations between the world’s two largest economies quickly deteriorate.

Experts have warned the Indo-Pacific region is heading towards a dangerous crisis.

Both Kurt Campbell, former Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and the Pacific and Ali Wyne from the Atlantic Council, said eroding ties between the US and China have made the tensions “even more conducive to inadvertent escalation”.

Dr William Choong, a senior fellow at the ISEAS-Yusof Ishak Institute in Singapore, said: “You can’t divorce China and RIMPAC from the broader tensions in the Sino-US relationship.

A two-year-long trade dispute between the world’s two largest economies heightened in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic and China’s imposition of a new national security law in Hong Kong.

Both sides traded threats and sanctions on individuals and businesses, such as Chinese video platform TikTok.

China this month sent fighter jets across the mid-line of the Taiwan Strait at the same time the US health chief Alex Azar visited the island to offer President Donald Trump’s support.

China, which claims the island as its own, condemned the visit and threatened unspecified retaliation to the trip before Mr Azar met Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen.

The Asian nuclear giant has also stepped up its military activity near Taiwan and has never renounced the use of force to bring it under its control.

Beijing also threatened to apply sanctions against 11 US citizens including officials in response to Washington’s move to impose sanctions on 11 Hong Kong and Chinese officials whom it accused of curtailing political freedoms in the city.

Meanwhile, Japan sent a warning shot to China ruling it “must strengthen” its armed forces to combat growing aggression from its historic foe.

Tokyo revealed it is considering a huge increase to its defence capabilities as it accused China of pushing territorial claims.The East Asia nation released its annual defence review, where it said Beijing has been pushing its territorial claims amid the coronavirus pandemic.

But signs of improving relations between the US and China could be imminent after the Chinese commerce ministry said on Thursday the nations had agreed to hold trade talks “in the coming days” to evaluate the progress of their Phase 1 trade deal six months after it took effect in February.

They followed Tuesday’s remarks by White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows that no new high-level trade talks were scheduled, though both sides were in touch about implementing the Phase 1 deal.

The deal, reached on January 5 was seen as a major breakthrough but ties have quickly soured in recent months.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).

. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).

. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).
