I'm not one who likes to take biblical scriptural passages out of context like fundamentalist and resort to picking an argument no matter how intriguing someone tries to make a conversation.
Even as a young kid I heard my grand-mother and my own mother say often that in someplace in the Bible it said that in End Times the People of the Yellow Race would Rule the World after a Great War.
Never once could I ever find any place in Scripture that made me think this might be true.
However; today we hear of Political Powers in the World with the G-20 nations in their conquests speak about coming together and building ("The New World Order").
In the Apocalypse Chapter 9: Verse 14-18 Douay Rheims version we read as follows...
**14 Saying to the sixth Angel, who had the trumpet: Loose the four Angels, who are bound in the great river Euphrates.
15 And the four Angels were loosed, who were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, to kill the third part of men.
16 And the number of the army of horsemen was twenty thousand times ten thousand. And I heard the number of them.
17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision: and they that sat on them, had breastplates of fire, and hyacinth, and brimstone, and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions: and from their mouths proceeded fire, and smoke, and brimstone.
18 And by these three plagues was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.**
In particular take note of verse 16 where it speaks of an army of horsemen was twenty thousand times ten thousand
What army in the world today has a number of men totalling twenty thousand times ten thousand ?
Only one such army in today's 21st century exist. China !!! with 2.2 million strong.
In Haydock's Catholic Commentary haydock1859.tripod.com/id295.html
Ver. 16. Twenty thousand times ten thousand, or two hundred millions. Such an immense multitude cannot be accounted for, but by supposing a great part of it to consist of the infernal beings in human form, as it is doubtful whether there be that number of men capable of bearing arms upon the whole globe of the earth
Doubtful? Such armies of men of this size exist in the world today.
Curious. What does anyone else make out of this?
