This week United States President Trump is visiting with Chinese President Xi, and both are trying to present a united front as they hash out differences over trade and the growing problem of  North Korea.  
 
North Korea is one of several nations which holds the potential of sparking the next world war.  North Korea will no doubt by a part of the great eastern hordes which will play a large role in the coming end time conflict. (Dan 11:44, Rev 9:16)
 
It would stand to reason with the huge numbers of China (1.3 billion) that they would be included in hordes who will be involved in the war in the final conflict prior to the return of Jesus Christ.  China currently is indeed stepping up the development of military power and striving to assert itself as a power in the Southeast Asian theater.
 
Another area to watch centers around Iran and Saudi Arabia as there is an expectation there will be a major conflict soon.   Some are predicting a bloody war.  If Iran was able to bring down the Saudi regime Iran, Syria, Hamas, and others would be emboldened to attack Israel.  
 
Any war between the Saudis and Iran could be a catalyst for the formation of the King of the South which will play heavily into the scenario foretold by the prophet Daniel.
 
We don't know exactly how prophecy will unfold,  but, as we get closer to the end of the age, we will be able to see which way events are leading.  Christ warned us to watch so we are not drawn way to the distractions of this world such that we neglect our spiritual condition, and we are caught unaware. (Lk 21:34)

We live in a time when children from an early age are being taught in some nations to hate and kill their enemies. It is a time when threats by rogue nations are made regularly, and the possibility of war is ever-present. The news these days is sometimes scary. More and more people do not want to hear about it, and as a result, the news media is catering to this mentality by providing fluffy nonsense mostly about Hollywood. Of course, we are admonished to watch and be aware.

But, we have hope when we see the crazy news of these confusing time.  Jesus Christ told His disciples, "And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet." (Matt. 24:6 )
