Increasing Threats and Rumours of Wars; South China Sea tensions on the BRINK: Vietnam lashes out at build-up of Chinese bombers

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; South China Sea tensions on the BRINK: Vietnam lashes out at build-up of Chinese bombers

BEIJING has been issued a warning by Vietnam following the continued presence of bombers in the South China Sea.

Vietnam has hit out at the continued presence of military personnel on the disputed Paracel Islands in the South China Sea. The islands have been claimed by several states with Vietnam warning the move by China “jeopardises” peace in the area. Although Vietnam did not state when the bomber arrived on the islands, foreign ministry spokeswoman Le Thi Thu Hang claimed it threatened the state’s sovereignty.

She added: “The fact that relevant sides sent weapons and bombers.

“Not only violates Vietnam’s sovereignty but also jeopardises the situation in the area.”

Vietnamese media reported Beijing had deployed a H-6J bomber to the islands, although there has been an increased build up of several Chinese military equipment in the region. 

The Paracel and Spratly islands have been claimed by Taiwan, the Philippines and Vietnam.

However, under Xi Jinping’s One China policy, the islands remain within the state’s historical claims.

This week, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) completed live-fire drills in the East China Sea.

The drills had been carried out over three days in the region in what will be considered a sign of its strength against Taiwan.

According to the PLA’s Eastern Theatre Command, the drills were conducted around Taiwan.

Like the Spratly Islands, Taiwan is claimed by Beijing under Xi’s policy.

An official report stated: “The training laid a solid foundation for winning a battle, while polishing the troops’ combat capability.”

These live-fire drills came as the US Navy sent another ship through the Strait of Taiwan.

The US continued to conduct these exercises in order to illustrate its support for Taiwan’s independence and the freedom of the region.

A statement from the US Navy said: “The US 7th Fleet which is headquartered in Japan conducts forward-deployed naval operations in support of US national interests in the Indo-Pacific area of operations.

“As the US Navy’s largest numbered fleet, 7th Fleet interacts with 35 other maritime nations to build partnerships that foster maritime security, promote stability and prevent conflict.”

The USS Mustin is the seventh to pass through the Taiwan Strait this year.

The respective shows of force by the two states, comes as China issued a warning to America over US Health Secretary, Alex Azar’s visit to the autonomous island.

Due to the first high-level trip by a US official since 1979, China warned peace in the region may now be jeopardised.

Chinese military official, colonel Ren Guoqiang said: “The US should realise that China must and will be reunified, and the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation must and will be achieved.

“These actions have sent extremely wrong messages to the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) authorities.

“We urge the US side to immediately correct its mistake, stop its official and military contacts of any form with Taiwan, earnestly abide by the one-China principle and the three China-US joint communique, and promise that no similar incident would occur again.

“Taiwan is an inalienable part of China.

“The future of Taiwan lies in reunification and the welfare of the Taiwan compatriots lies in national rejuvenation.”

. . . “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.

. . . “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).
