And indeed the Bible does prophesy a great power rising in the Far East. But it’s a power that comes with its own military against the beast (Revelation 9:14-16 Revelation 9:14-16  Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.
 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.

China is a great power and is set to become even more powerful. However, it’s clear that whatever strength it wields will be separate from the beast power that’s to come.
