Will China stop Hong Kong's protests?

  • China has warned it might be losing patience with what it calls a 'colour revolution' in Hong Kong.
    It's said those who play with fire must not mistake Beijing's restraint for weakness - they will eventually be punished.
    A few days after that warning, protesters were back on the streets for the tenth straight weekend.
    They've defied a police ban on some of the marches, and again faced teargas.
    Activists have also staged a protest at the international airport, to make arriving tourists aware of their campaign.
    Protesters want chief executive leader Carrie Lam to resign, greater democratic reform and an inquiry into alleged police violence.
    But Lam says her priority is to stop the unrest, that she says has hurt the city's economy.
    What options does China have, to deal with anger in Hong Kong?
    And is a military intervention possible?

    How come they never asked the White Man for universal suffrage. Now not even considering themselves as China Men they demand from China rights that they were to afraid to demand from Bwana.

    Einar Tangen insinuates the utter falsehood that because some HKers have met with high level American officials, that is evidence that the US is financially and/ or organizationally sponsoring the HKers in some alleged effort toward revolution against Beijing, the the CCP. This again is utterly false and without foundation. These American officials have been very clear and persistent in defining their support aimed at CCP's living up to the very terms inscribed PRC international agreements regarding one country two systems. PRC is all the time encroaching on the very terms of the agreement which handed HK back over from UK colonial status to the rule under PRC. HKers seek, e.g. universal suffrage, but there has not been a single step forward and many steps back from this. The US officials define their support, which is only at this point moral support, in terms of adherence to the agreement. Mr. Tangen speaks falsely. Is it ignorance, stupidity or lying?

    Tom is a lier. Residents are turning against them and USA is supporting them. Apple even created an app for them to keep track of the police movement. An official apple app. Where are the older protests? How come only kids decided to protest? Tom couldn't even stop smiling and laughing. You want to stop China but you just don't know how.

    In Daniel 2: 31-46 a description of our days is described. An immense 'image' represents the political system. The 'feet' of the 'image', where we are today [this image is like a time line of political world powers] there are people, who are not sticking together; just as iron is not sticking with clay. So 'iron-like' totalitarian political powers are not 'sticking together' with 'clay' like ordinary people who want a say in government. So this results [in our days; the conclusion of this system] is protests and riots seen in 28 countries in Q4 of 2019. These countries are:
    Spain, Sudan, Russia, Egypt, Uganda, Indonesia, Ukraine, Peru, Hong Kong, Zimbabwe, Colombia, France, Turkey, Venezuela, The Netherlands, Ethiopia, Brazil, Malawi, Algeria, Iraq, Haiti, Ecuador, Lebanon, Chile, Guinea, Pakistan, Bolivia and Iran.
    The 'vision' of Daniel CONTINUES, with a 'Stone' that is cut, [not by hands] that represents Christ Jesus; ' The Stone that the builders rejected, but was glorious in the sight of God' 2Peter 2: 6 This 'Stone'; Christ arrived in power and glory, as also seen in Matthew 24: 29, 30 impacts this 'political image' and DESTROYS IT, so that is resembles 'chaff upon the wind'. So the political system's authority ENDS when Christ arrives; and Christ arrives like an impacting 'Stone' when we also see the protests and riots; [as outlined above] This 'Stone' became a 'large mountain' that 'filled the earth'. A long-lasting enduring object....the earthly Kingdom of God that is outlined in Daniel 2: 44....is the end result of these events now seen.
    Christ arrives at the 'Sunrise' of God's Kingdom, which is also referred to in Psalms 46: 4-6. This is talking about wars, wrath, and a financial meltdown. CHRIST ARRIVES in power and great glory, and the political system is decimated completely. Revelation 19: 11, 19-21.

    And the result of this is seen in Matthew 25: 31, 34 when the 'sheep-like' true Christians are already inside God's Kingdom at the time of Christ's arrival. Psalms 37: 11, 29 Revelation 7: 9, 14-17. These are the SURVIVORS of this crisis.
    So the answer to this is: Will Beijing step in? Jehovah God, and Christ Jesus arrive at the Sunrise Revelation 16: 12. Malachi 4: 2.THIS is also the time WAR appears between the US, Israel, and IRAN Daniel 11: 44, 45 Daniel 8: 20, 23-25.
    "The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell...."Revelation 16: 19. Christendom vs Muslim; and Muslim vs Jewry.
    THIS is the arrival of the END of this system Romans 9: 28 and Jehovah God, and Christ Jesus are dealing with this crisis Personally. "And the way was prepared for the kings of the rising of the sun..." Revelation 16: 12.
    Do you have a question about the Great tribulation? You would be surprised about the amount of information is in Scripture. ASK.
