Summary: According to Revelations, a great red dragon, i.e., Satan, tried in vain to devour Jesus Christ when He was born, and was cast out. Two thousand years later, Satan or the red dragon shall be loosed out of his prison, and he shall go out to deceive the nations in the world with underlings as plenty as the sand of the sea (1.3 billion China people?). But Revelations says the red dragon will be devoured by God with fire. The red dragon probably represents red Communist China, whose national totem has always been dragon and whose rise in the 21st Century gravely threatens the civilized order of the West. Nostradamus (1503-1566), Hans Holzer (1971), and Mark Taylor (2016) have all prophesized that America, united with European nations and Russia, will defeat China in a great war, which is also hypothesized by Graham Allison’s Thucydides Trap theory. In view of President Donald Trump’s trade war and cold war strategy against China, he is probably the “trump of God” (1 Thessalonians 4:16) who will put an end to the “beast in the East”.
Revelation 12:3-9 (KJV) tells of “a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads” which “before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron”. Apparently, the woman was Mary and her child, Jesus Christ. The great dragon, i.e., Satan, by way of King Herod, tried to kill baby Jesus in vain. “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth.” Revelation 20: 7-8 seems to foretell the coming back of the red dragon, probably in the form of Red Communist China, which has always referred to their people as the descendants of the Dragon.
Downfall of the Red Dragon
“The thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth [Red China has trying to infiltrate and control all countries in the world, e.g., by way of the One Belt One Road debt trap, Huawei and other non-traditional spies] to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea [China has a population of 1.3 billion].” Revelation 20: 9-10 then describes the downfall of the red dragon: “And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”
The Trump of God
“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God” (1 Thessalonians 4:16). “The trump of God” may refer to President Donald Trump. According to The Trump Prophecy, published in 2016 by Mark Taylor the retired fireman who in 2011 prophesized that Trump will become the President of the Untied States, “The Spirit of God says, There’s a beast in the east, that’s trying to arise that thinks he’s the best, but I have one in the west, that will give him a godly surprise, and take him down to the least.” “I always beat China, always,” said Trump during his election campaign in 2015.
The Tariff Man
After winning the 2016 election, Trump has slammed China with a tariff of 10% on $250 billion worth of Chinese goods, and will increase it to 25% on $500 billion worth of all Chinese goods on 2 March 2019, if China fails to buy $1.2 trillion worth of US goods, and end intellectual property theft, cyber espionage, and forced technology transfers. Meanwhile, Trump has lobbied European countries, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Taiwan etc. to contain China economically, geopolitically, and militarily.
USA+Russia vs China
Moreover, Trump has made friends with Putin to make sure that Russia will not side with China once war breaks out between China and America. In fact, the French seer Nostradamus (1503-1566) is quite certain that war shall start in the East as the result of an alliance formed between Russia and the West. “One day the two great leaders shall be friend; their great power shall be seen to increase. The New Land (America) shall be at the height of its power and the man of blood shall reassess his allies.” There shall be in the East great fear and dread. It is fear that shall force China into war. “The East shall quake for fear of the two brothers of the North who are not brothers. They will be victorious against the Easterners.”
The Thucydides Trap
The Bible’s and Nostradamus’s prophecies are backed up by Graham Allison’s (2015) Thucydides trap theory, according to which in 12 of 16 past cases in which a rising power has confronted a ruling power, the result has been bloodshed. And China and USA are likely to find themselves at war, as the former has been trying to usurp the latter’s global leader position.
China will eventually lose the war against America
In 1971, parapsychologist Hans Holzer compiled a “survey of the future” from a number of psychics and seers in USA and Britain, whose visions all predict that China will dominate the entire Orient, that The United States will be in a war with China, that Russia and a few European nations will be America’s allies, and that China will eventually lose the war.
