Revelation 6:3-4 “when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4 And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.

Important Takeaways:

  • When the Moon Turns Red: China’s Plan to Annex Space
  • In 2021, Roscosmos, Russia’s space agency and the China National Space Administration agreed to build a shared moon base, to be named the International Lunar Research Station.
  • “Chinese control of the moon would confer control of Cis-Lunar space, the portion of space between the Earth and the moon. Control of Cis-Lunar space would give a country the ability to shoot down or otherwise disable deep-space satellites, which are essential for, among other things, the early warning of ballistic missile attacks.” — Richard Fisher of the International Assessment and Strategy Center, to the author, March 2014.
  • The free world should view Chinese and Russian progress with alarm. China’s regime, for instance, has made it clear it intends to annex space.
  • Ye Peijian made it clear that Beijing intends to exclude others from the moon, among other places, if it is in a position to do so.
  • The American-led Artemis program also contemplates a base at the South Pole. NASA, unfortunately, has been pushing back Artemis timetables.
  • Article II of the 1967 Outer Space Treaty prohibits “national appropriation by claim of sovereignty, by means of use or occupation, or by any other means,” but when has a treaty obligation ever stopped the People’s Republic from doing whatever it wants?
