The Skies Over Beijing Turn Black in Middle of Day as Government Passes New Laws Against Christians

The skies over Beijing turned dark and black in the middle of the day on Thursday, as the Communist Party came together for an annual meeting.

Chen Beingzhong, a life-long Beijing resident described it in one report to the Epoch Times “as an alarm from god.” He said that there was “Thunder rolling. Heavy gale blowing. The sky was very dark … I have never seen this in my life.”

2057 top government officials are currently in session in Beijing and their agenda is not looking good for Christians. News is leaking out of the meeting about new laws for the church. The government is  drafting new plans to further persecute the underground house church. The details have not come out yet, but it seems that the current coronavirus epidemic is being used as a reason for the Communist Party to put even more pressure on the church than they have in the last two years.


The thick dark clouds that descended on Beijing on Thursday seemed to be like a supernatural sign, that the forces of darkness had moved into the city. We believe that an intense spiritual battle is underway in China because of the vision that God has given to the underground church. The enemy knows that his time is short and the mobilization of the massive church in China is hastening the completion of the Great Commission and the return of Jesus Christ.

Earlier in the month, on May 3rd, BTJ reported on a raid on a house church in China (video link below). Several believers were arrested and taken away. They have not been heard from since the meeting.

In the coming days we plan to report on any new laws that are passed during these meetings, which impact Christians in China, so that partners and believers can pray more effectively.

They shall rise and walk in JESUS. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Cheer up! JESUS LOVES YOU.

    9. Jenny

      May the love and power of God be upon our Chinese brothers and sisters. May their hearts beat more fervently for You, their voices ring louder for You. And we dare to believe You will be found in the hearts of the policy makers. The God Almighty will not be mocked. His faithful people will not be shamed. And because You overcame, Your people too will overcome.

    China will be a strong Christian Country…
    Ask Apostle St. Paul.

  14. Daniel Furtney

    The Chinese and other govts believe they can beat Christianity by persecution, they need to read history. The true church thrives under persecution, ask the Roman govt in Christs day. It’s all part of GODS plan, as Christ suffered and died for us, so we in our walk with Christ must also be afflicted and suffer besides also experiencing joy and contentment.

  15. Roger Py Jr

    Looks like fake news. Nothing was convincing or proving anything.

    1. Julie

      Yes I agree with you, I feel very sorry for all these deluded people, the god folk, they are gleefully witnessing all the destruction of the planet and all its inhabitants, and waiting for a ‘saviour’s, soooooo deluded and brainwashed

  16. Sara Overholt

    Father, thank you for grace and mercy on us all. I ask You so open the flood gates of Heaven and release powerful warring angels to cast down this darkness and evil works against Your children in China and all over the earth!
    Your will be done! In Jesus Christ name! Amen and Amen❤️

  17. Diana F Pitney

    You need to watch, Sid Roth’s “It’s Supernatural”, “Corona Virus End Times.”
    A prophet of God exposes China as part of those who deliberately started the Virus. This prophet said, God is going to deal with China. God is tired of how they’ve treated His people.

  18. Philip W.

    The judgement of the Lord shall soon come to pass and wickedness in every form and place shall be certainly be “rewarded”. Soon the Master comes.

  19. Brian Johnston

    The Church is very mich aLive and Well in China albeit It is called the Patriotic Church Which works with the Communist Party Which has refurbished Churches throughout the country in recent years. We learn That St. Paul worked the Jews to.promote Christianity in the early Church After Pentecost.

  20. Joan M

    We cancel out the agenda of the enemy over China in Jesus name. We say Your kingdom Your will be done in China as it is in heaven. Halleluia.

  21. Joseph Mathew

    Our God is alive,He is the very present help in trouble, we are also praying for China.

  22. Marvin Yahnke

    Jesus said that night is coming, when no man can work. Perhaps that day has come to China.

  23. Luxshmi Sriyan NH De SilvaT

    Trust GOD with all our heart..
    Trust HIM how HE is going to do it is HIS way.
    Have Faith in GOD..
    Faith is the evidence of things not seen.
    Fast and Pray unceasingly and press the ‘Pause Button’ and listen to what HE will tell you.
    Listent patiently until HE speaks to you.
    JESUS told that you will go through Storms.
    But HE(the Holy Spirit of Truth of JESUS) that is in you is greater than he( the Enemy satan)that is outside.
    The Storm is not inside you. The Storm is outside of you.
    N.o Weapon formed against you ever will prevail.
    In JESUS Mighty Name
    Amen, Yahmein,Aammiinnnn….

  24. Julie Ferrara

    My prayers are with our brothers in China. May they remain in the Lord

  25. Alan Hunter

    God of love and mercy,reveal yourself to these chinese leaders that they may come to accept the Gospel,that your churches may continue to grow in their land. I pray that these churches will bring you honor and glory, nevertheless Your will be done…amen.

      1. Nanda D

        Did it ever came in your mind that all this could be a fake? I mean sky turning black in Beijing and we have only a few posts about it over the internet? Cmon!

  28. David Teoh

    Let’s all Christians globally be alert the Last Day prophecies are coming to past . Hold on the faith that we have been professing lest we are left behind when the Trumpet is sounded …

  35. Nixon Thomas

    Jesus is coming soon

  36. Rowena On

    This is now you base on your news report on? A thunder storm? The schedule and list of items to be discussed during the 2 sessions in the coming days are easily accessed on the internet. It has nothing to do with religion, let alone Christian persecution. This is not news this is garbage. Don’t call upon the name of the Lord base on lies. Shame on you

    1. Benjamin

      Father Lord, by the strength of your Spirit, I take down these controlling and oppressive spirits fighting agains the church in these communist nations and I release the Mighty Angels of Elohim upon ‘them’ to unleash the terrorising power of God on them.
      To the church, I send the Encounter and Ministerying Angels to the belivers to help and support them in all miraculous and supernatural ways in Jesus.
      I place a demand before the court of heaven according to Acts 5:19 and 12:7- 11, for A GREAT SUPERNATURAL RELEASE OF THE BRETHREN FROM THE PRISONS IN GREAT NUMBERS, that will shake these wicked, satanically influence people, to acknowledge and recognise the Supremacy of God so as to repent and be converted in Jesus Mighty Name.
      I declare and decree that China belongs to Jesus…..

      1. Iain McClain

        AMEN!! And may the Spirit of the Almighty, Eternal King prevail. and “Every knee bow and every tongue confess that Emmanuel the Messiah is King,” and may “all that are against him be ashamed”.

  37. Nishesh

    Lord Jesus is our savior.. He will save them too in different ways .. God is good .. some ways will be find out to save them

  38. Micheallah A Farmer

    Just like the message that was said by the little girl with the in hands in the movie: Paranormal Activity 6 Ghost Dimension; and for it was one of them! the darkness is coming. In Jesus name, in Jesus name; Amen, Amen.

  39. Micheallah A Farmer

    And it is proof just like they were saying on some songs, some belief and religious books, and the Paranormal Activity 6 Ghost Dimension movie that the darkness is coming exactly, exactly, in Jesus’s name, in Jesus’s name, God Almighty, Amen, Amen.

  40. Elijah A. Igbani

    May God protect and preserve his own in this perilous time in Jesus name. Amen

  41. Jimmy

    Come Lord Jesus Christ. Send your Angel and Holy spirit to crush the power of Evil in the Communist Chinese People. Amen

  42. Mona

    “Sovereign Lord, who through the mouth of our father David, your servant, said by the Holy Spirit, “‘Why did the Gentiles rage, and the peoples plot in vain?
    The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers were gathered together, against the Lord and against his Anointed’ —

    “And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness, while you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
    Acts 4:25‭-‬26‭, ‬29‭-‬30 ESV

  43. Bert Brown

    We wrestle from the position of victory and not for victory. We are victorious and the battle is already won. We decree and declare that no weapons be drawn against our Chinese brothers. We decree and declare that they will not be held in bondage, that the leaders will see the light and that the edicts they now debate will in no way harm the church and our brothers. We serve an awesome and mighty God.

  44. Geoff

    Jesus, You Yourself said that the gates of hell WOULD NOT PREVAIL against Your church.
    Despatch and launch your angels now Lord to strike and kill these unrepentant leaders and deliver our and Your family from this evil.
    Remember the days of King Herod Lord, “And immediately an angel of the Lord struck him because he did not give God the glory, and he was eaten by worms and died.”
    Acts 12:23 NASB
    We give You all honour, glory, wealth, thanks and praise in Jesus’ name amen.

  45. Efeovbokhan O Francis

    ….He that sitteth in Heaven shall laugh……

    1. Nicholas Obuba

      Prayer is the key to eliminate evil conspiracy against our brethren in China and the whole world.
      I saw something in my vision, I saw one of the greatest monk in China been converted into Christianity with strong Power of the holy spirit and he brought a great change in the face of Christians in China and Asia. So brethren I kindly urg all of us to patiently wait in fervent prayer for our brethren in China. In book of Genesis, God called light out of darkness, there’s a great light coming out of China

  46. Lyndsay

    I stand in agreement with our Chinese Christian Brothers and sisters and we plead jesus’ precious blood over them, that they are safe, stay safe, find peace, and that the CCP get quickened by the power of God to wake up and realize there is none more powerful than the one and only God we serve, Christ Jesus. Please send your holy angels to protect your people. In Jesus’almighty name, amen

    1. Anbananthan

      There is power in the name of Jesus save the world Amen ✝️

  47. Cynthia Baugh-Bell

    I am praying for you in this very distressing time. May our LORD bless and keep you safe..

  48. Iain McClain

    For those that think that this is made up or photo shopped, I was told of this before it was posted, by some good friends of mine that are there who have been keeping me informed on how their work is going there. May we all look for that which is truthful and trust the father and his plan and leave it up to him. Meanwhile, regardless of whether it is true or not let us pray for the persecuted.

  49. Teiso Therie

    Dear believers in Christ, Me and my family members will pray for you all. Be strong and stand firm in the Lord even at the jaw of death. God will help and take care of you all.

  50. Chris

    May Almighty take away China for Good there shall be no China

    1. Will

      If God was willing to spare Sodom and Gomorrah if only 10 righteous people could be found there, how do you think He feels about the nation of China with over 100 million believers?

  51. Emmanuel Wanyama

    When we see these things then lets tighten our holy righteous walk with the Messiah for the end is with us. Remember he promised of signs in the heavens.
