From NewsMax World: China and Russia proclaimed a deep strategic alliance on Friday to balance what they portrayed as the malign global influence of the United States as China’s President Xi Jinping hosted Russia’s Vladimir Putin on the opening day of the Beijing Winter Olympics.

In a joint statement, the two countries affirmed that their new relationship was superior to any political or military alliance of the Cold War era.

“Friendship between the two States has no limits, there are no ‘forbidden’ areas of cooperation,” they declared, announcing plans to work together in a host of areas including space, climate change, artificial intelligence and control of the Internet.

The agreement and its symbolic timing – at a China-hosted Olympics that the United States has subjected to a diplomatic boycott – marked the strongest evidence yet of how the two giant neighbors are cementing their ties at a time of deep tensions in their relations with Washington.

Each backed the other on key points at the heart of those tensions:

  • -Russia voiced its support for China’s stance that Taiwan is an inalienable part of China, and opposition to any form of independence for the island. Moscow and Beijing also voiced their opposition to the AUKUS alliance between Australia, Britain and the United States, saying it increased the danger of an arms race in the region.
  • -China joined Russia in calling for an end to NATO enlargement and supported its demand for security guarantees from the West – issues at the heart of Moscow’s confrontation with the United States and its allies over Ukraine.

The two countries expressed concern about “the advancement of U.S. plans to develop global missile defense and deploy its elements in various regions of the world, combined with capacity building of high-precision non-nuclear weapons for disarming strikes and other strategic objectives.” . . .


In the technology arena, Russia and China said they were ready to strengthen cooperation on artificial intelligence and information security.

They said they believed that “any attempts to limit their sovereign right to regulate national segments of the Internet and ensure their security are unacceptable.”

Meanwhile Russian state energy giants Gazprom and Rosneft on Friday agreed new gas and oil supply deals with Beijing worth tens of billions of dollars.

The deals capitalize on Putin’s drive to diversify Russian energy exports away from the West, which started shortly after he came to power in 1999. Since then Russia has become China’s top energy supplier and cut its reliance on the West for revenues.

The Kremlin said the presidents also discussed the need to broaden trade in national currencies because of unpredictability surrounding the use of the dollar.

U.S. President Joe Biden has said Russian companies could be cut off from the ability to trade in dollars as part of sanctions if Russia invades Ukraine.

Moscow denies any such intention, but has used a build-up of more than 100,000 troops near Ukraine’s border to grab the attention of the West and press its demands for security guarantees.

The Chinese gas supplies are not directly linked with Russian gas exports to Europe, and more Russian gas for Beijing does not automatically mean less for Europe. However, they serve Putin as an addition revenue cushion amid the rising threat of U.S. and EU sanctions.

Prophets have seen this coming and we believe this will greatly affect Americans. We need to turn the tides with our votes to put Republicans back in office! This is serious!

Praying for our spiritual leaders to voice these concerns to the church. Wake up the American church.

This is my first time watching this on the website. Thank you so much for making us aware of these times of prayer. What a blessing this was! There was an amazing connection, heart-to-heart, Holy Spirit-led prayer. Will continue to pray for these people as well as our own. Thanks again!

Lord we pray for your protection, for your guidance to our government and the governments around the world to be led by your Truth. Thankyou, Lord for your watch care over us.

This plays into Revelations, because China has 2,185,00 troops, with India having 1.4 million troops. Hagee says, “Look up, pack up, pray up, because we’re going up!” alleluia

This all appears to be a response to Biden’s weak, pathetic foreign policy. This fits into the narrative of Biden’s attempts to destroy America, and the Globalist Elites that funded putting Biden in the White House. Lord Jesus, we pray for YOUR will to be done, in spite of the recent developments between Russia and China. Please, make a way, where there would seem to be no way. Thank You, Jesus.

The two countries have waited for this moment in time when the USA has its weakest leader in decades due to being compromised by the millions paid by foreign countries to the Biden Mafia. All the countries previously part of the Soviet Union is in jeopardy of being consumed by Putin. I fear with this union Formosa is a given to be overthrown without so much as a threat from the door mat Biden.

We need to have strong leadership in our country -not what we have now. We need to make it clear that Jesus Christ is the head of our military and we need to make everything right within the military and elsewhere (stopping all mandates) and getting rid of all sexual perversion in the military and everywhere else in our country. We need to honor life at all stages of life from conception to natural death and to honor God in all things. Only then, will we be able to fight off our enemies.

    Our military are being poisoned with the bioweapon so called vaccine. Many have died.
    Trust no one but Jesus.
    The Deception is Great.

      Lord Jesus. We humbly come before you, sinful & sorrowful for all of the atrocities committed against the Sacred Heart of Jesus & the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
      We pray for Fortitude to meet the coming Chastisements and to prepare are hearts and souls with prayer, fasting & penance.

      Open the Heart of Your Church to the power of the gospel and send Your Holy Spirit to fill the hearts of the faithful to face the challenges with Victory for Christ.

There is surely a possibility that we are approaching the second seal of Revelation 6, corona and bow on the white horse being #1.

Turning back to God as a nation is our only hope against evil alliances and powers such as China and Russia. We gave away our energy independence when we shut down the Keystone pipeline while simultaneously allowing Russia to open their pipeline. We need honest leaders who put American interests first, not those who are financially connected to China, so what benefits China benefits them personally but destroys the rest of us and our country. Prayers that we wake up before it is too late. http://www.mtothe5th.wordpress.com

Acts 26:14,15 We all fell to the ground, and I heard a voice say to me in Hebrew, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute Me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.” “‘Who are you, lord?’ I asked. ”And the Lord replied, “I am Jesus, the one you are persecuting….”
Proverbs 21:1,12,24,30,31. The king’s heart is a waterway in the hand of the LORD; He directs it where He pleases. The Righteous One considers the house of the wicked and brings the wicked to ruin. Mocker is the name of the proud and arrogant man—of him who acts with excessive pride. There is no wisdom, no understanding, no counsel that can prevail against the LORD. A horse is prepared for the day of battle, but victory is of the LORD.

Dear Lord God Almighty, You put “kicking against the goads” on my mind as I considered this alliance. These “mighty men” are doing just that but ultimately fighting against You. I am thankful they are in Your Hands and can be directed into Your Will. I am thankful for Your Word which is always true. You have power and control over the wicked, the mockers, the proud and arrogant. They can be used by You but will never prevail against You. I pray protection and triumph over every plan and strategy Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin conceive. I pray we will know Your mercy Lord, we are their bull’s eye. I ask this in the Victorious Name of Jesus Christ and I pray these men will soon have a personal, life changing meeting with Him I pray this for Joe Biden as well. Amen

    Outstanding. When you and me pray scripture we are more assured we are praying His Will and NOT OUR OWN !!Tku for this studied prayer. “Study to show thyself approved that we as His workmen, be not ashamed”, when I (presumed) speak for Him in this life on earth.

Father, we come against this evil alliance and declare that it will have no authority in our country in the name of Jesus. We pray that you bring Godly leaders to our government who can see this for what it is. Raise up strong leaders like David, who can lead us into battle against the tyrannical giants of our time. Amen.

Read Revelation to remind yourself of the incredible, undeniable parallel between this eschatological prophecy and these actions of Russia and China.
I pray that a sense of urgency will increase in believers to be busy about spreading the gospel.

    February 5, 2022

    Where in Revelation does God’sWord speak of Russia and China? I’d like to read it

China and Russia are leaving the West (US) behind and tightening the noose to strangle the US in technology, economics, and world leadership. Leadership within the US keeps declining and getting weaker and the eyes of the world can see this. Much of the US and its’ companies are owned by other countries. Many other countries feel the US is filled with arrogance and self centeredness. Unless our people change and start living biblically, our kids will have a bleak future.

These two giants aligning together is a cause of great concern, especially at this weak moment in our nation. Praying for our nation to be energy independent and to be led by godly leaders. Not to be caught up in fashionable anti energy movements that further weaken us against this alliance. Guide us, Father.

I think it’s good opportunity to the whole world because everything is dominate by 1. It would be come to cold everything as like of evil thing. Let’s say why GOD create man & woman. So why intervention in other countries to do that, they have their wish, their choice, so what pushes to do evil thing?
