The Coronavirus, Bioweapons and the Pale Horse
Members of the medical and pharmaceutical field are thrilled. Massive government responses to coronavirus have produced massive amounts of scientific data, which genomicists, systems biologists and researchers in artificial intelligence and other fields have taken advantage of. Some say they are a step closer to curing other highly infectious diseases like hiv. Vaccines, although still of largely unknown side effects, were produced at “warp speed.”
But in addition to the medical unknowns, history shows that major scientific advancements have never come without also advancing warfare.
On January 27, Spitzberg Partners chairman Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg moderated an online discussion between Wayne Koff (ceo, president and founder of the Human Vaccines Project) and Anja Langenbucher (European director of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation). An article about the discussion stated:
Both the Human Vaccines Project and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are world-leading experts in understanding and combating disease outbreaks. The Human Vaccines Project is the pioneer in decoding human immunity. Deciphering the human immune system is the next great frontier of science, allowing to harness the vast potential to fight disease that lies within all humans. For the first time in history, technologies across genomics, systems biology and artificial intelligence are opening areas of inquiry at a breathtaking rate.
Atlantik-bruecke.org summarized the discussion and noted: “In the effort to decode the human immune system, the coronavirus outbreak proved to be instructive, said Koff. The fact that a vaccine against the coronavirus was developed in less than a year constitutes an unmatched scientific achievement.”
But as the article points out, scientists are still puzzled why some have been more vulnerable to the virus and why some have responded better to the vaccine than others. Every one of the 7.7 billion people on Earth has an individual immune system that shares common rules but is itself utterly unique.
The coronavirus has allowed insight into the immune system, leading to a better understanding on how viruses spread and how vaccines can be developed to counter them.
For example, why does the sars mortality rate lie at 10 percent while mers has a mortality rate of 33 percent? Scientists now hope to gain a more comprehensive understanding of why some diseases are deadlier than others. “In the long term, the Human Vaccines Project is looking to create a model of the human immune system, with the help of [artificial intelligence],” Koff said.
Such a model could be used to better understand the vulnerability and the strength of the immune system. It would thus further the development of many cures to counter diseases. But the same technology could also be weaponized.
During the pandemic, dna samples of millions of people have been collected and analyzed. Disguised as an act of kindness, China has taken advantage of this. “Foreign powers can collect, store and exploit biometric information from covid tests,” Bill Evanina, former director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center, warned in a public notice, according to 60 Minutes. Fox News reported that, according to intelligence officials, a Chinese company offered to build covid-19 testing labs in the United States for this very purpose.
Rick Berman, executive director of the American Security Institute, noted in an article published by Newsweek on February 10:
bgi Group, China’s largest genetics company, approached a number of states last year offering covid testing and laboratories. But beware of the Chinese bearing gifts. The ruling Chinese Communist Party (ccp) funds bgi Group, which runs China National GeneBank, a giant dna database. While most U.S. states rebuffed the “generosity,” testing supplies were used in at least one state.
Intelligence experts recently warned that Chinese companies also try to obtain personal data, including dna, through partnerships or investments in U.S. companies. According to the MacroPolo database, Chinese interests have purchased almost 2,400 U.S. companies, including more than 20 in the field of health care and pharmaceuticals.
More and more people are waking up to the threat China poses. But it’s not only China gathering American dna. Other foreign powers also partnered with U.S. companies to achieve breakthroughs in the pandemic.
Pfizer and the German start-up company BioNTech forged an agreement in 2018 to jointly develop an mrna-based influenza vaccine. This research prepared them to produce one of the first covid-19 vaccines. Millions of Israeli, British and U.S. citizens have received the BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine before long-term results of the vaccine could be tested.
To use the gathered dna to produce vaccines is one thing, but what else could the data be used for?
Why Collect DNA
Berman pointed out that China could be collecting dna from American citizens for various nefarious purposes, for example: “Chinese military scientists could create biological weapons that affect people based on their genetics.”
Few want to consider such a possibility. A weapon that specifically targets a certain group of people based on their genetic code? It appears to be a script from a horror movie, but such weapons likely already exist.
Just prior to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, Cambridge University warned in 2019 that biological weapons could be used to target ethnic groups based on genetics. New technologies such as artificial intelligence and genetic manipulation are making this possible. The Guardian of Nigeria wrote:
A new report from Cambridge University’s Center for the Study of Existential Risk says that world governments have failed when it comes to preparing against threats like futuristic bioweapons powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and genetic manipulation. Such weapons would have the power to target specific dna and kill certain races of people, leaving other swaths of the population unharmed. …
Biological weapons are considerably cheaper than nuclear and chemical weapons and have a large effect-to-quantity ratio. In other words, a relatively small amount of biological agent can cause a relatively large number of deaths—equivalent, in some assessments, to those resulting from nuclear use. They do not require complex delivery systems, and their ease of manufacture is increasing with advances in science.
Given their relative affordability, effectiveness and flexibility, biological weapons are increasingly being considered as an attractive option by non-state actors, making bioterrorism one of the major threats regarding this type of weapon. The use of biological agents to force the eradication of drug production crops is promoted by the U.S.A., notably in Colombia.
The Cambridge report warned that scientists could lose control of the AI systems and start an accidental mass killing. Few, however, warn that some scientists in dark laboratories are actively working on weapons of mass destruction that target specific ethnicities. The more data a scientist has, the more specific are the weapons he can develop.
Had such weapons existed in World War ii they certainly would have been used.
More and more in the U.S. are working to oppose China’s inroads into the nation. But there is another major global power that has a leading pharmaceutical manufacturing industry, is closely allied with the U.S., and has a history of wanting to exterminate entire races: Germany.
No One Fears Germany
Many consider Germany to be one of the U.S.’s closest allies. For this reason, Germany is often granted on a silver platter the insight that China seeks illegally. If Pfizer would have cooperated with a Chinese company to produce a vaccine, many people would have sounded the alarm. But few if any are concerned about BioNTech’s cooperation with the U.S. company.
BioNTech is a small German start-up that has suddenly risen to global importance and received incredible funding from the U.S. But a giant in the pharmaceutical industry has also been heavily involved in the “fight” against the pandemic: Bayer AG.
If you combine the knowledge BioNTech gathered with the experience and equipment Bayer has, you can quickly see the danger in trusting a foreign entity.
Bayer AG is a German multinational pharmaceutical and life-sciences company, one of the four largest pharmaceutical companies in the world. On its website Bayer notes that the company focuses “on preventing, alleviating and treating diseases” and “providing a reliable supply of high-quality food, feed and plant-based raw materials.”
In other words, Bayer holds the keys to guaranteeing the survival of millions—even for those in the U.S.
Bayer is represented in all strategic business areas in the United States and Canada. It employed 20,735 employees in the region in 2019 and generated sales of approximately $18.2 billion. Last year, Bayer helped fund additional testing centers, medical staff support and blood drives for covid-19 initiatives in the U.S.
In 2016, Monsanto agreed to a $66 billion cash takeover by Bayer AG. Scientific American noted at the time: “The deal will create a company commanding more than a quarter of the combined world market for seeds and pesticides in the fast-consolidating farm supplies industry.” At the time, Monsanto was the world’s largest seed company, controlling 23 percent of the global market.
The government has put a lot of trust in Bayer. This is concerning considering the company’s history.
Bayer was once part of the conglomerate IG Farben, which cooperated with the Nazi regime, enabling its crimes and advances in science. After the war, the Allied forces divided the company into four separate companies: Bayer, basf, Hoechst and Cassella.
Today, Bayer claims to be a force for good. But what could such a global company do when allied with an evil state actor?
Bayer has the scientific understanding and the ability to not only produce bioweapons but even unleash them.
Here is one example of how things could unfold: Instead of developing pesticides or biological agents that protect plants from weeds, fungi or insects, pesticides could be used to destroy entire crops, leading to large-scale starvation.
Or these agents could be designed to poison food, specifically targeting weaknesses in the immune system—thus America’s food supply could be used to poison millions. Other bioweapons could target the population directly like an infectious disease.
Bioweapons were used in World War ii; imagine how much more devastating the war would have been if Adolf Hitler would have had access to today’s research. Like today’s leaders, Hitler used science to strengthen the health of his citizens. In “Nazi Medicine and Research on Human Beings” Prof. Volker Roelecke noted in December 2004: “Rassenhygiene (a German equivalent for eugenics) was perceived as an applied science founded on the laws of genetics, and as essential for improving the health of the Volk, or race.”
It was Hitler’s goal to strengthen the German people and destroy the Jewish race. In IBM and the Holocaust, Edwin Black explains how Hitler worked with the most advanced technology available to destroy every Jewish life, even cooperating with an American company. Imagine how much more devastating the results of such a plot would be today.
Shockingly, the Bible reveals that such a plot is already planned. Psalm 83 warns of another attempt to erase Israel from the map. This is a prophecy for modern-day Israel (primarily the United States, Great Britain and the State of Israel). Bioweapons could certainly factor into achieving this goal.
The Pale Horse
To most, such contemplations are too horrendous to even consider. Yet Bible prophecy paints a vivid image of such a future holocaust, unless we repent. In an explanation about the pale horse of Revelation 6, our free booklet The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse states:
Other biblical translations describe the pale horse as an ash-colored horse, a horse sickly green, a horse sickly pale and an ashy pale horse. We have continually stressed throughout that we should look to Christ the Revelator to explain these seals and symbols. He provides us with the most correct word to unlock the true identity of this pale green horse which man’s best translations cannot: “and there shall be … pestilences” (Matthew 24:7). The man on the pale horse symbolizes climactic, globe-encircling plagues and pandemics occurring and soon to occur in this modern age!
Look up pestilence in any Bible concordance and you will be amazed by the link between the second, third and fourth horsemen representing war, famine and pestilence (Jeremiah 21:9; 27:13; 29:17-18; 32:24; 34:17; 38:2; 42:16-17; 44:13). These three horsemen derive their origin directly from the first horseman of religious deception, as we have already shown. …
Worldwide disease epidemics are mentioned in the same context with the other horsemen in Revelation 6:1-8 and in the three Gospel accounts of Matthew, Mark and Luke, because they are successive. Multiple millions of people will perish from sickness and disease if they survive the ravaging effects of nuclear bombardment and subsequent starvation. This will bring the total death toll of all four horsemen to one fourth of all mankind. With the world population over 7.8 billion people, this number could conceivably reach 2 billion!
Many biblical prophecies that talk about a coming war and famine also often talk about pestilence. Jeremiah 21:9, for example, reads: “He that abideth in this city shall die by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence: but he that goeth out, and falleth to the Chaldeans that besiege you, he shall live, and his life shall be unto him for a prey.” As explained in Germany and the Holy Roman Empire, the Chaldeans refer to modern-day Germany.
The late Herbert W. Armstrong and Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry have proclaimed the warning of these prophecies for decades. These prophecies foretell that America specifically will be economically besieged and that many will die in a famine and by disease outbreaks.
As Mr. Flurry explains in his free booklet Isaiah’s End-Time Vision, a prophecy in Isaiah 23 and Deuteronomy 28:52 reveals China and Germany will briefly cooperate to besiege America. As a result, America will be plagued by internal fighting, famine and diseases. Those diseases will be the natural consequence of poor living conditions, but some could certainly be the result of specifically designed bioweapons.
Hope in God
The Bible reveals that millions and even billions of people on this planet will lose their lives. Jesus Christ Himself prophesied in Matthew 24:22: “And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.”
Mankind’s only hope lies in God’s divine merciful intervention.
Deceived by the devil (Revelation 12:9), mankind refuses to submit to God’s loving government and His laws that bring true and lasting happiness. God allows this rebellion to continue until there remains no doubt that mankind is utterly incapable of ruling himself.
Today, people trust in science more than in God. But the system mankind trusts in today will plague it tomorrow. God is a jealous God and tolerates no other god in the place of Him.
