I Prayed have prayed
Lord Jesus, as reports of suspected bird flu circulate through media channels, give us a spirit of discernment so we can separate fact from fiction.
Reading Time: 6 minutes

Over the past few weeks, news cycles have been abuzz with stories featuring four specific words: birds, cows, influenza and pandemic. Recent headlines like “If many dairy farm workers contract H5N1, we risk a pandemic” and “Lack of US bird flu tracking in cows may raise risk of human infection” are capturing the attention of a COVID-weary public  still reeling from over three years of lockdowns, masking, and mass vaccination.

Just who and what are behind all this telegraphing that appears intended to rev up anxiety and fear over an avian virus that shouldn’t even pose a threat to humans?

It doesn’t take long to pinpoint the source of the burgeoning bird flu hype. In April 2024, Jeremy Farrar, chief scientist of the World Health Organization, warned in a press conference that “there’s an increasing threat of human-to-human bird flu transmission” because “the virus has increasingly mutated to spread to humans from other mammals.” Even though there’ve been no known human-to-human transmissions, Farrar insists the virus still poses a threat, noting that it’s now labeled a “global zoonotic animal pandemic.” He points to an ongoing outbreak of H5N1 (avian influenza) among dairy cows in the U.S., emphasizing that “it may evolve into transmitting in different ways.” He adds that efforts are underway to “immediately respond with access equitably to vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics” if human-to-human transmission begins.

Farrar’s Ties to Big Pharma and COVID’s Origins

Farrar’s words of warning are not sitting well with those who remember what happened in early 2020, when the Covid pandemic first began circulating around the globe. At that time, Anthony Fauci received an email from Farrar, who was the Director of the Wellcome Trust (a U.K.-based health research foundation with strong ties to big pharma, the World Economic Forum, the Human Genome Project, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation). The email led to a conference call with prominent scientists and virologists scrambling to get their story straight about the origins of SARS-CoV-2.

Consequently, a highly influential medical paper in Nature Medicine would be published, titled “The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2,” geared to disprove any ideas that COVID might have originated from a lab leak. Moreover, emails show Farrar requesting that an important change be made to this paper. He writes: “Sorry to micromanage/micro edit! But would you be willing to change one sentence?” This change was to replace the word “unlikely” with “improbable,” so that it would read: “It is improbable that SARS-Co-V-2 emerged through laboratory manipulation of an existing SARS-related coronavirus.” Of course, evidence would later prove that the COVID virus did, in all likelihood, originate from a lab leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

 The WHO and Disease X

As the 77th meeting of the World Health Assembly inches closer, media and government reports continue piling up about “highly pathogenic avian influenza (H5N1).” Incidentally, for well over a year, the WHO has been using the label “Disease X” to refer to the next pandemic pathogen, which it believes will be 20 times deadlier than COVID. At its annual meeting taking place May 27–June 1, 2024, at least 194 member states, including the U.S., will be voting on a Pandemic Treaty and revised IHR amendments.  

 Is it a coincidence that warnings of a bird flu pandemic have taken flight just months before the WHO’s annual meeting, or is there something more sinister at play?

 Why All the Ruffled Feathers Over Bird Flu?

Though bird flu outbreaks have been happening for years, the latest wave of concern began in early 2024 as the H5N1 virus began circulating through poultry farms and wild bird populations around the world. Cal-Maine Food plant, which is the largest producer of eggs in the country, decided to cull millions of chickens suspected of being infected. In March 2024, it was reported that bird flu had spread to cattle with cases in Kansas, Michigan, Idaho, Ohio and New Mexico. By early April, Americans were being warned to cook their eggs to avoid any possible contamination from bird flu. Additionally, the FDA reported they had “discovered fragments of the virus in some samples of milk,” but assured the public that pasteurization should kill it.

On April 1, 2024, Texas Health and Human Services reported the first suspected human case of avian influenza in Texas, detected in a worker at a dairy farm. According to the CDC, this was the second human case of H5N1 flu in the U.S. and the first linked to an exposure to cattle. Even though the dairy worker’s only symptom was conjunctivitis (pink eye), this was enough to set the wheels of fear in motion.

On May 8, 2024, the FDA Commissioner announced, “We’ve been busy getting prepared for if the virus mutates in a way that jumps into humans on a larger level.” Other experts are saying, “we are getting dangerously close to a bird flu pandemic.”

COVID Pandemic Deja Vu

The latest bird flu outbreak seems to be following a familiar pattern reminiscent of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the case of H5N1, public messaging has been going on for years. Former CDC Director Robert Redfield predicted that the next pandemic could be caused by a bird flu, with a much higher lethality rate than COVID.

Even more suspicious is the fact that the U.S. Department of Agriculture has been collaborating with Chinese scientists in gain-of-function research on H5N1 avian flu virus. Recently, Sen. Joni Ernst demanded information about the “dangerous bird flu experiments” funded by taxpayer dollars through a grant from April 2021 through March 2026. These “wet lab” virology experiments involved “strains of avian influenza virus” that “pose greatest risk to avian or human populations.” Tests involve infecting vaccinated chickens, mallard ducks, as well as species of Chinese geese and Japanese quail, to evaluate the virus’s transmissibility and ability to jump into mammalian hosts.

Ernst exhorts: “They should know by now to suspect ‘fowl’ play when it comes to researchers who have ties to the dangerous Wuhan lab, and simply switching from bats to birds causes concern that they are creating more pathogens of pandemic potential … here is my warning: The Biden Administration should be walking on eggshells until they cut off every cent going to our adversaries. We cannot let what happened in Wuhan happen again.”

Dr. Richard Bartlett, an emergency room director and former Texas Department of Health and Human Services advisory council member, suggested that the hype surrounding the current bird flu outbreak may be intended to nudge the population into later accepting mass bird flu vaccination, in a campaign akin to mass COVID-19 vaccination during the pandemic.”

Bartlett explains: “One of the things we saw with COVID was, we were supposed to be afraid, be very afraid, hide in place and wait for a magical vaccine that they were going to create out of thin air, and that would be our answer for getting our normal lives back. … I expect we might see that pattern again.”

In sync with the latest news of bird flu cases and warnings from government agencies, the White House published a document that details a five-year “U.S Government Global Health Security Strategy.” This 60-page framework details the Biden administration’s commitment to rapid vaccine development, mass vaccination, and collaborating with big pharma partners funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

The document was released ahead of the World Health Assembly. Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center, explains: “The U.S. Global Health Security plan would ensure that if the WHO treaties fail to be signed by enough countries to become international law, the U.S. will make sure there is a ‘rapid response to global health emergencies.’ According to the U.S. plan, the core of that ‘rapid response’ are ‘efforts to transform international financial institutions,’ such as the World Bank, and to accelerate ‘manufacture, procurement and delivery’ of medical countermeasures like vaccines.”

Is Bird Flu an Attack on the Food Supply?

For over a year, the WHO, the United Nations, the World Economic Forum, and other global institutions  have been warning about the threat of Disease X. At the same time, they have all been pushing a climate-change narrative which demands that the world eat less meat. At present, over 3,000 farms are being shut down in the Netherlands, the second-largest exporter of agricultural products. Farms all over Europe are on the chopping block as well. Livestock is targeted as harmful to the planet, while novel meats and dairy alternatives are touted as emission reducers.

Physician and bioweapons expert Dr. Meryl Nass says,: “Bird flu is a convenient pick because it enables them (global authorities) to push their health tyranny and their food transition at the same time. They can claim that dairy, beef, chicken and eggs have become ‘dangerous’ as an excuse to ration them, or at least force scarcity while they drive the prices up. They will then push the idea that veganism and/or lab grown meant ‘prevents pandemics’–something they have been claiming since 2021.”

As bird flu stories continue cycling through the mainstream media, it’s important that we do not let fear infiltrate our hearts and minds. Instead, let’s pray for the truth to be revealed as it was during the COVID pandemic. Let’s pray also that courageous doctors, scientists, lawmakers, pastors and American citizens will be ready once again to stand against any nefarious plots — if the need arises.

Jesus, You have not given us a spirit of fear. Instead, You have given us the spirit of truth, which results in bold courage. We pray for clear discernment in the days ahead. Amen.

Do you think the bird flu is being used to stoke fear? How can we infuse faith instead of anxiety?

Dear Angela,
Another important article from you! Thank you for your diligence in reporting and bringing us these articles from this sector. We truly need the information to pray with targeted precision about these plandemic schemes. Lord, have mercy on Your people and expose and block all attempts to use fear about avian flu to compel signing onto the WHO agenda and treaty for global control of medical care related to pandemics. Cripple the greed of Big Pharma and the globalists so that no money can be reaped from fear of the avian flu. In Jesus’ Name. Amen and Amen

Praying Ps. 91 over America.
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress; my God; in him will I trust. Surely He shall deliver me from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with His feathers; and under His wings. Thou shall trust; His truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shall not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that fliethby day. NOR for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A 1000 shall fall at thy side, and 10,000 at thy right hand. but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thy eyes, shall thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou has made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the Most High, thy habitation. There shall no evil befall thee neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear you up in their hands lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and the adder: the young lion and the dragon thou shall tramp under feet. Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he has known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble. I will deliver him and honor him.With long life, I shall satisfy him, and show him My Salvation. Amen

Lord, this movement toward promotion of fear regarding a potential pandemic is created to promote immobilization of humans around the world and condition us to fall into line under the WHO…. I pray for your protection against such and I pray that truth will prevail – God, protect us against all evil as it comes against your truth…. in Jesus Name, Amen
