The US is Losing the Battle for the High Seas - part 3
by Ron Fraser
Already, in step with the biblical prophecy of our times, Russia and China have been making friendly overtures to each other, even conducting joint naval exercises in the South China Sea. The combined navies of China and Russia would present a considerable force to any nation with which one or the other, or both, had a disagreement.
But consider. Japan has the second-largest navy in the world. What if China, Japan and Russia were able to patch up the various differences they have over disputed territory and form a defensive alliance? Japan’s naval might, added to the combined nuclear naval strength of China and Russia, would present a formidable force to the West.
In fact, should these three ally—even for a moment in time—with a united Europe, with all four of them increasingly exploiting controlling interests in various regions of Africa, the worst fears of Sir Halford Mackinder would be realized!
Such an alliance would literally present “a united base of sea power,” capable of closing down inbound trade to the island nations.
The result? Siege by naval blockade!
Sound crazy? Check your Bible.
The Coming Siege
“Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee … The Lord shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth … And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which the Lord thy God hath given thee” (Deuteronomy 28:45, 49-52).
Believe it or not, God gave the major island land masses of the world to Britain and America—not for any goodness on their part, but in fulfillment of ancient promises to a biblical patriarch (explained in our free book The United States and Britain in Prophecy).
Neither nation has given God due credit and honor for these blessings. Instead, the Anglo-Americans have strayed far from their God; their morals lie in the pits; their greed and selfishness wax strong in the age of consumerism. Current economic “good times” are a façade, masking the uncontrollable hugeness of national and personal debt. Outsourcing might be the buzzword of the age, but, in reality, it bespeaks a nation that has handed over its once-greatly prized self-sufficiency by transferring its productive knowledge, skills and abilities offshore to nations of the World Island. In reality, we have simply transferred the ability to effectively exploit the benefits of our God-given national blessings to foreign nations, thereby strengthening them and weakening ourselves.
God will not be mocked. He will have His day—and soon! The writing is on the wall already for those with eyes to see it. Ezekiel’s prophecy clearly predicts that the hordes
of the World Island will ultimately gather together in a grand alliance (Ezekiel 38:1-7). The prophecies of Revelation 13, 17 and 18 all point to a European superpower actually ruling the world for a short time, with the merchants, the great international corporations that traffic their wares through the world’s seaways, being complicit, just as in World War II, in their support of a tyrant’s regime. Such an event would need an alliance with the powers that control the world’s sea gates and sea lanes at the time. That is coming, believe it or not, short though its life is destined to be.
The groundwork of a punishing siege against Anglo-Americans is being laid. It remains for the right moment to arrive when Chinese, Japanese, Russian and European economic and political will combine to mount a monetary siege against the dollar—and it will consummate in literal naval blockade of the now largely China-owned sea gates through which the bulk of Anglo-American trade must pass.
The results of this siege are prophesied to be horrific! Read it for yourself in Deuteronomy 28:53. In fact, read the whole chapter and realize that God declared this rising scenario fully 3,500 years ago through the Prophet Moses!
But does it all end there, with the U.S., Britain and its dominions, the great island nations of the West, enslaved by the hordes of the World Island?
Thank God it doesn’t!
The one true God is a God of great mercy and compassion, but He commands obedience. Why? Because the law He has put in motion guarantees blessings to be lavished upon those who conform willingly to it. The same God commanded the nation of ancient Israel, from whose roots came today’s Anglo-American peoples: “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them” (Deuteronomy 30:19-20).
We simply have a choice! Choose to submit to and obey your Creator, and gain life and “length of days.” The consequences of refusing that call to obey your Creator are unfathomably painful, given the reality of the speed at which the prophecies of Deuteronomy 28 are racing toward fulfillment!
On the surface, it seems a simple and obvious choice: Choose life and length of days under God’s protection—or choose rebellion against the Creator and endure the coming siege, and then, in pain, acknowledge that you and yours could have avoided the greatest suffering yet known to man (Matthew 24:21-22).
Our prayer is simply that you make the right choice.
