The Arab Spring has turning into a geo-political disaster as was predicted by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. President Obama still says it is all over a cartoon created by a Coptic Christian who was detained the other day by American authorities. It is a sad day that a free society like America detained a man for publishing a cartoon. I believe it was somehow against his parole, but in any case it was not the cartoon, it was because America does not lead anymore. The vacuum of leadership will be filled one day by a man full of sin called the Antichrist.
Another piece of evidence of America's failed leadership is the Chinese, Japanese row over an island. There are reports 1,000 Chinese fishing ships are heading toward the island. These fishing ships are well organized, and could provoke a small skirmish between China and Japan. The King of the East seems to be exercising its strength as of late. This is all heading toward an apocalyptic showdown in the Middle East sometime in the future as the Antichrist and his Western forces meet the forces of the South, North, and East when Christ comes back.
The easy money from the Federal Reserve will skyrocket prices throughout the world. Hong Kong is already preparing for a significant rise in housing prices, and many parts of the world will be hurt by the American quantitative easing, or man-made inflation. Revelation talks about a time when hyperinflation will haunt the world after the Antichrist is revealed. The Antichrist is revealed in the first seal, which has not happened yet, and then in the fourth seal we have hyperinflation, or when money becomes worthless. This has to happen before the mark of the beast is instituted.
Please continue to pray for me as I have more tests run this week. I may know what is going on within my own body as soon as the end of the week. In this time of prayer and reflection, I have personally renewed my life to the Lord, and given myself more over to Him. Pray for health of body, mind, and spirit.
Chinese fishing boats, which often seem suspiciously well-drilled and organised, have clashed with the Japanese coastguard over the Diaoyu, or Senkaku, islands before, but never in such numbers.
The fishing boats may also be joined by six Chinese maritime patrol ships, which briefly entered Japanese waters last Friday in a show of defiance.
The spat over the islands, which has been rumbling for decades, intensified last week after Japan announced it had bought some of the archipelago for the nation from a private Japanese family.
That enraged China, which also claims sovereignty over the chain. Over the weekend, tens of thousands of Chinese protested in over 50 cities, overturning Japanese cars and burning the Japanese flag.
Yesterday (MON), the protests continued in Beijing, but were significantly smaller. However, a number of Japanese businesses have suspended their China operations until the situation calms down.
