According to a 2021 Pentagon study, China is the only nation that is able to mass produce the explosive CL-20 due to advances by Chinese military scientists in this field of research (ref. 1). CL-20, otherwise known as Hexanitrohexaazaisowurtzitane, is the most explosive non-nuclear substance in the world. Its designation “CL” is due to the fact that the substance was first synthesised at the “China Lake” facility of America’s Naval Air Weapons station in California. However, the relative instability and poor shock resistance of CL-20 when compared to other military grade explosives including TNT, RDX and HMX have limited its use in weapon systems.
Now, China has discovered a way to further improve the stability of CL-20 through nanotechnology, making it five times more shock resistant (ref. 2). This breakthrough means CL-20 will soon make its way into more of the PLA’s missiles, rockets and shells. The Pentagon concluded in 2021 that CL-20 has already been integrated into several of China’s weapon systems.
A missile, rocket or artillery shell with the explosive and destructive power of CL-20 might well explain the Bible prophecy of Joel 2:10, which I had previously assumed meant actual earthquakes. This is when the east begins to take ground from the armies of Satan, around the time of the sixth trumpet and vial, one of the seven wraths of God.
The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army…Joel 2:10-11
“The heavens shall tremble” is surely China and Russia destroying the satellites of the USA, and the like, with anti-satellite weapons.
“The sun and the moon shall be dark.” That must mean volcanic eruptions from God and the darkening of the skies by volcanic ash to the further advantage of the kings of the east, “an army of horsemen” that moves mainly on the ground.
For that matter, Joel 2:3 is probably thermobarics from multiple launch rocket systems, MLRS’s, which are unique to the war fighting doctrines of Russia and China.
A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.Joel 2:3
The USA, by contrast, prefers shredding the target with shrapnel rather than burning it with fire.
It could be argued that Joel 2:3 is nuclear, but given China’s policy on nuclear weapons use, and given’s Russia’s reluctance so far to use tactical nukes on the battlefield of Ukraine, I think Joel 2:3 is thermobarics.
To be sure, nuclear weapons will be fired in these last days, and at some point even Israel will resort to nuclear weapons. But these are special weapons to be used at specific moments against targets chosen by God himself.
For an advancing army, firing thermobaric MLRS’s to clear the way makes more sense.
Speaking of MLRS’s, Russia has recently fielded a new system, called “Sarma”, which is said to out-range their existing Tornado and also America’s Himars (ref. 3).
In yet other news, Ukraine just blew up Nova Kakhovka dam in the Kherson region, flooding the surrounding area and displacing many. Of course, Ukraine points the finger at Russia. But since the destruction of the reservoir “drastically” reduces the water supply of Crimea (ref. 4), it is more logical that this was done by Ukraine, as part of their long awaited counter-offensive.
Technically, destroying civilian infrastructure like this is a war crime. But as I have said, in this unfolding world war, the Geneva Conventions are meaningless. We have all seen footage on social media of Ukraine wounding (shooting POWs in the leg at point blank) and even executing (stabbing a POW in the eye to death) Russian prisoners of war.
There is also ISIS, and their beheadings and sadistic televised executions.
Clearly, the enemy has shown no mercy, and therefore when the tables turn there should be no mercy for them.
Kill them all and take no prisoners is the correct mindset in this unfolding war. For all of the Devil’s armies, and all who would take up arms for the Devil, must be brought to an end!
The horsemen lifteth up both the bright sword and the glittering spear: and there is a multitude of slain, and a great number of carcases; and there is none end of their corpses; they stumble upon their corpses: Because of the multitude of the whoredom of the wellfavoured harlot [Mystery Babylon], the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts. Behold, I am against thee, saith the LORD of hosts…Nahum 3:3-5
This destruction of a dam and consequent flooding is relevant to Bible prophecy to some extent, because in time to come, in a different theatre of war, the armies that are against the Antichrist will likewise do this to him and to his forces.
The gates of the rivers shall be opened, and the palace shall be dissolved… But Nineveh is of old like a pool of water: yet they shall flee away. Stand, stand, shall they cry; but none shall look back.Nahum 2:6-8
I have noticed that Russia is slowly but surely becoming angry. Talk of a “special military operation” has given way to talk of “war” (ref. 5).
In time, China too will come realise that there is only one way forward. You might have noticed China trying to go in another direction now and again – accepting Zelensky’s phone call to the surprise of Russia, sending a peace envoy to Ukraine, and whatnot. Because of course, atheist China does not understand what is actually happening, nor why America in particular despises China so much and wants to see China ruined.
What time she [the ostrich, USA] lifeth up herself on high, she scorneth the horse [China] and his rider.Job 39:18
… neither believeth he [the horse, China] that it is the sound of the trumpet.Job 39:24
COVID will only stop when the enemy is no more. China’s Belt and Road can only succeed after the war.
Recently, an expansion of NATO into Asia to further contain China was proposed.
Remarkably, France objects the idea of NATO in Asia (ref. 6). This, plus the fact that American pastors under the influence of demons are still saying that the Antichrist will rise in Europe and have nothing to do with Islam, means although France is currently on the side of Ukraine, things will change when the beast with seven heads and ten horns emerges.
All things are only a matter of time.
On China, Napolean once said, “When she wakes, the world will shake”.
Hast thou given the horse strength? hast thou clothed his neck with thunder? Canst thou make him afraid as a grasshopper? the glory of his nostrils is terrible. He paweth [like a lion] in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength: he goeth on to meet the armed men. He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted; neither turneth he back from the sword. The quiver rattleth against him, the glittering spear and the shield. He swalloweth the ground with fierceness and rage: neither believeth he that it is the sound of the trumpet.Job 39:19-24
The ground will shake not least because of China’s mastery of the explosive CL-20.
The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it? Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even unto me with all your heart…Joel 2:10-12
