(Minghui.org) On midnight of March 27, a bright turquoise fireball flashed twice in the skies above Beijing.

Taken together with natural disasters that have happened in China recently, including droughts, sandstorms, and epidemics, they resemble a pattern that has been documented before in Chinese history—a pattern that precedes a dynastic change.

Today, they may signal changes in the dominance of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

A bolide flashed twice in Beijing’s night sky on March 27, 2023.

Here are a few examples of this pattern of natural disasters or phenomena happening right before a shift in power.

The Decline of the Xia Dynasty

According to Zhushu Jinian (The Bamboo Annals), China’s first dynasty, the dynasty of Xia, went into decline with the ascendancy of its 13th king, Yin Jia. During his rule, there was severe drought and extremely hot weather. The book also recorded that 10 suns appeared in the sky at the same time, scorching the ground. The king died in the disaster.

Not long after Yin Jia’s death, a major earthquake took place during the reign of the Xia Dynasty’s 15th king, Fa (1627 to 1615 BC). That was the earliest earthquake documented in China. Fa died in that same year.

Two earthquakes happened during the reign of Jie, the last king of the Xia Dynasty. According to Zhushu Jinian, one earthquake was accompanied by “meteors falling as thick as heavy rain” and the “Yin and Luo Rivers drying up,” while the other coincided with the “collapse of Mount Qu.”

Many people linked these disasters with Jie’s reckless behavior.

The Reckless Behavior of King Jie and Its Consequences

At that time, the nation of Xia had many crises, but Jie continued to be an extravagant tyrant. He ordered the construction of opulent buildings and collected beautiful women from the entire country. Every day, he indulged himself with Mo Xi and his other concubines.

It was said that King Jie built a pool of wine so big that a boat could sail it. People would often go on joyrides in that pool, get drunk, and fall into the pool and drown. This, and a series of other absurd deeds, was done to please Mo Xi.

Yet, ordinary citizens at the time lived in poverty, with families often separated due to these natural disasters. Since King Jie often compared himself to the sun, people often cursed him while pointing at the sun, saying, “When will you die? I hope that you and I meet the same end.”

King Jie had a hot temper. He was also brutal and often killed innocent people. Guan Longfeng, a senior official, once took the Huangtu (diagram of kings)to King Jie. This diagram depicted ancient kings, such as Yu the Great, and documented the stories of how they did good deeds to serve their people.

Guan hoped King Jie could learn from these rulers and care for his people. He also hoped to warn his king that continuing with his antics would only mean destruction.

But King Jie refused to listen and had Guan executed. The king also issued a warning to his other subjects that anyone else who gave him advice like this would follow Guan to an early grave. From then on, no one dared to correct King Jie’s misconduct and the situation got even worse.

As a result, several earthquakes happened and the nation’s rivers ran dry. People in later generations often considered this a lesson regarding the importance of living a virtuous life.

The Conclusion of the Zhou Dynasty

A similar situation happened during King Xuan’s reign in the Zhou Dynasty. A major drought broke out in around 803 B.C. Rivers dried out, forests shriveled up, and the land grew desolate. People were starving, and it was even difficult to find water to drink.

Following examples of ancient kings, King Xuan also tried to correct his own wrongdoings, but the disasters did not end. In addition, he took innocent lives, which led to his own death.

The next king, You, was even worse. During a major earthquake in the capital area, three rivers (Jing, Wei, and Luo) dried up. Mount Qi collapsed.

Historian official Bo Yangfu warned his king that this was a portent of the Zhou Dynasty’s ending. But King You did not listen and, to please his concubine Bao Si, even played with the beacon fires that were reserved for war emergencies. This led to the ending of the dynasty and his own life.

Abnormal weather and disasters abounded during that time. According to Zhushu Jinian, it was warm in the winter and cold in the summer. The nation’s crops were severely damaged.

When we think back to the bolide in Beijing on March 27 after taking these examples into consideration, it takes on a different meaning. Meteor showers also appeared right before the deaths of two former CCP leaders, Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping.

As more people become clear about the CCP’s brutality and lies, the regime’s ending could be anytime soon.
