Japan summoned Chinese diplomats on Saturday in connection with protests against some 230 Chinese ships’ approaching to the disputed Senkaku islands (Diaoyudao Islands) in the East China Sea, the RIA Novosti news agency reported on August 6.

“This is a unilateral act that raises tensions … and it is unacceptable to us,” the director-general of the Foreign Ministry’s Asian and Oceanian Affairs Bureau, Kenji Kanasugi, told the Chinese Embassy in Japan.

Reportedly, about 230 Chinese fishing boats, accompanied by six China Coast Guard vessels, approached to the disputed islands on August 5. Some of the Coast Guard vessels were allegedly armed with guns.

The incident occurred just a day after six Chinese fishing boats and two China Coast Guard vessels were detected in the same area.

The Senkaku islands are the subject of a territorial dispute between China and Japan. Japan claims that the country occupies the islands since 1895, while Beijing reminds that Japanese maps of 1783 and 1785 years show that the Diaoyudao Islands are a Chinese territory.

The Chinese Navy has been repeatedly accused by Japan of invading the Japanese territorial waters, in particular sailing in the contiguous zone near the disputed Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea. In 2014, China and Japan agreed to reduce tensions over the disputed islands.

However, it seems that China starts to have more and more claims in the region.

    For now we can sleep in peace. But where are we going? Let me remind here a fragment of an ancient vision: “And [the king of the north] will go back (to) his land with great wealth [1945. This detail indicated that Hitler will attack also the Soviet Union and will fight to the bitter end]; and his heart (will be) against the holy covenant [hostility towards Christians]; and will act [it means activity in the international arena]; and turned back to his own land [1991-1993. The collapse of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact. Russian troops returned to their country]. At the appointed time [he] will return back.” (Daniel 11:28, 29a) The return of Russia in this context means break up the European Union and NATO. Then many countries of the former Eastern block will return to Russia’s zone of influence. Russian troops will be stationed here again.

    “And [the king of the north] will enter into the south [this can be Georgia], but it will not be as the former [2008 – Georgia] or as the latter [now Ukraine], for the dwellers of coastlands of Kittim [USA, in the beginning without Britain] will come against him, and he will be dejected, and will go back.” (Daniel 11:29b, 30a)

    What will induce the “king of the north” to enter into the south? Jesus said: “For nation will rise against nation”, as in 2008, and then …

    Moses writes: “But ships from the direction of Kittim [US Navy], and will afflict Asshur [Russia] and will afflict Eber [remaining enemies, including Iran and China].” (Numbers 24:24a) It will be suicidal mission. This armada will not return home. (Numbers 24:24b)

    This will be a nuclear war. (Revelation 6:4) “A great sword” in this context means a nuclear sword. As Jesus foretold, it will be “the beginning of birth pains”. (Matthew 24:7, 8)

    In 1882 British troops occupied Egypt. Great Britain then took the role of “the king of the south”. Around the same time, Russia expanded its influence in the region, which previously belonged to Seleucus I Nicator, and took the role of “the king of the north”. (Daniel 11:27)

    All the details of this vision are being fulfilled from the time of ancient Persia, in chronological order. It is true that this vision is variously interpreted. As one can see, it has a lot of details. Therefore the insightful person is able to detect any error or sophistry. (Daniel 12:10)
