Isaiah 49:12 Look, they come from far away! Look, some come from the north and west, and others from the land of Sinim!
Genesis 10:16-18 the Jebusites, Amorites, Girgashites, Hivites, Arkites, Sinites, Arvadites, Zemarites, and Hamathites. Eventually the families of the Canaanites were scattered.
The following is from the Genesis Record, Henry Morris.
The Biblical mention of a people in the Far East named “Sinim” (Isaiah 49:12), together with references in ancient secular histories to people in the Far East called “Sinae,” at least suggests the possibility that some of Sin’s descendants migrated eastward, while others went south into the land of Canaan. It is significant that the Chinese people have always been identified by the prefix “Sino-” (e.g., Sino-Japanese War; Sinology, the study of Chinese history). The name “Sin” is frequently encountered in Chinese names in the form “Siang” or its equivalent.
The evidence is tenuous but, of all the names in the Table of Nations, it does seem that two sons of Canaan, Heth (Hittites = Khittae = Cathay) and Sin (Sinites = Sinim = China), are the most likely to have become ancestors of the Oriental peoples. Since it seems reasonable that divine inspiration would include in such a table information concerning the ancestry of all the major streams of human development, it is reasonable to conclude that the Mongoloid peoples (and therefore also the American Indians) have come mostly from the Hamitic line.
Revelation 16:12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, to prepare the way for the kings from the east.
In 2015, President Xi of China released the Belt and Road Initiative. China is looking to increase business with at least 68 countries across Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Land routes are considered to be “the belt”. Sea routes are considered to be “the road”.
China is looking to spend billions of dollars of investment on infrastructure projects. China is investing in Israel. Here is a list of projects. There are seaports in Haifa and Ashdod, Mount Carmel tunnels in Haifa, and the Tel Aviv light rail.
“What concerns us is China’s Belt and Road Initiative and its growing role in Israel’s maritime domain, especially the operating of Haifa port,” Retired Rear Admiral Professor Shaul Chorev.
“If you are going to look at phenomena like this initiative, you should look at it from all points of view. Most militaries use civilian technology, and that’s one reason why the Chinese favor economic activities like expanding ports. These are not only commercial, but commercial with military implications,” Douglas Feith, Director Center for National Security Strategies at the Hudson Institute.
