Is Food Being Used As A Weapon?
At times I feel the need to bring you up to date on issues that are not pleasant to talk about. Today is one of those days. For several months, I have been concerned about likely international food shortages in the near future. Financial experts, farmers, and prophets are now predicting this. My purpose today is not to put fear in you - we must not yield to fear - but to alert the praying church. We MUST pray and if led to do so, make wise plans. Today we are sharing parts of an article by Angela Rodriguez and published by Intercessors For America, that explains what is coming. (You can read the entire informative article here.)
“Since the beginning of time, food has been used as a weapon. Generals have utilized it to starve out the enemy, while dictators have wielded it to punish their own citizens. No matter what the reason, the food supply is perhaps the most powerful weapon that can be used to control a population of people.
“When the Covid crisis began, supply chain problems popped up around the globe, leading to outbreaks of fear-based irrational behavior. Who can forget the Great Toilet Paper Crisis where desperate people were seen wrestling each other over a pack of Charmin?
“The supply chain issues have intensified since the war in Ukraine. Your own eyes tell the tale when you walk into a supermarket, only to find your favorite cereal is missing, and the loaf of bread or bag of chips you bought in 2021 is now costing you almost a dollar more. Many of us notice 30% (or more) increases in our favorite food items, well above the published inflation rates of 8 or even 9%...
“Back in mid-May, economist James Rickards posted an article where he laid out the reasons why we could see more food supply issues in the near future. He wrote, ‘[I]n the Northern Hemisphere, the planting season for 2022 is well underway. Crops were planted in March and April. Based on that, you can already form estimates of output for September and October during the harvest season…plantings have been far below normal in 2022, either due to lack of fertilizer, or because of fertilizer's higher costs, farmers simply chose to plant less. This predictable shortage is in addition to the much greater shortages due to the fact that Russian output is sanctioned, and Ukrainian output is nonexistent because it’s at war.’
“Projecting ahead to October–December of 2022, means that countries who rely the most on importing grain will not be able to get the amount needed. According to Rickards, ‘The combined population of countries that get between 70%-100% of their imports from Russia or Ukraine is 700 million people. That’s 10% of the population… you’re looking at a humanitarian crisis of unprecedented proportions, probably the worst since the Black Death of the 14th century.’
“With some farmers paying two to three times last year’s price [for fertilizer], it’s inevitable that the consumer will absorb much of this cost. Farmers in North Carolina (USA) say they are feeling the impact of inflation and that increased input costs are not sustainable. One farmer said that fertilizer cost is ‘up three to four times what it was a year ago…’
“Add in higher prices at the pump and you’ve got a recipe for rampant inflation. In places like the United Kingdom, farmers can’t afford to plant crops for the next season because of skyrocketing fuel and fertilizer costs. Bank of England governor Andrew Bailey declared that food prices are rising at the fastest rate in 30 years, causing ‘a very big income shock.’ He described food price increases as ‘apocalyptic.’ He warns that the UK may see a double-digit inflation rate by the end of the year…
“While the grain supply is one concern, another issue is the outbreak of diseases among animal populations. [Millions of pigs, cattle, fish, chickens, and turkeys have either mysteriously died or been euthanized...]
“Adding fuel to the fire, there’s also been a mysterious outbreak of fires in major food processing facilities across the country. One such facility, known as Azure Standard, was destroyed overnight, affecting liquid products such as honey, oil, and vinegar. A week before this, a fire erupted at Taylor Farms, where the main processing facility was destroyed. Known as a ‘major player’ in the food supply chain for both Canada and the U.S., this loss did not go unnoticed. Another fire occurred in March at the Maricopa Food Pantry in Arizona, resulting in the loss of 50,000 pounds of food. If that weren’t enough, in Minnesota, thousands of chickens died in a devastating blaze. Additional fires have flared up in Texas, Indiana, New Hampshire, Oregon, and more.
“As these incidents and shortages play out, one can’t help but wonder what the globalists are saying, or more appropriately, what’s their role in all of this? It’s no surprise that one world organizations like the United Nations are talking about food shortages. David Beasley, the current head of the UN’s world food program, is predicting a ‘perfect storm’ of global agricultural collapse. The biggest problem this year is food prices, but he warns that next year, it will morph into a food availability problem as supplies run dry. ‘In 2023 you’re going to have a food shortage problem.’
“The World Economic Forum talked about food shortages at their annual meeting in Davos which was held May 22-26, 2022. Ahead of the meeting, World Economic Forum Founder Klaus Schwab said, ‘The return of war, epidemics and the climate crisis, all those disruptive forces have derailed the global recovery…Those issues must be confronted in Davos, and the global food crisis, in particular, needs our immediate attention.’
“When it comes to the food shortage crisis one wonders if the Hegelian dialectic has come into play. This occurs when a problem is purposefully created, but the blame for the problem is placed on another source. This problem elicits a reaction, whereby people cry out for a solution. Miraculously, the same entity that created the problem now provides a solution to solve the crisis.
“In this case, is it a stretch to ponder the idea that the globalists have their climate-friendly solution for world hunger already in hand? After all, they claim to be sustainable food supply experts who must act swiftly to save the world. At the 2022 meeting, they parroted all the answers and so did their stakeholders and partners.
“...The Rockefeller Foundation had a lot to say about the global food crisis in their guide titled Reset the Table: Transforming the U.S. Food System. The objective is clearly stated: ‘One of the consistent needs we’ve heard expressed by those seeking to transform the food system is a SHARED NARRATIVE to motivate the needed changes in the system…we articulated a narrative and a message framework focused on the long-term transformation needed in the food system.’ Further investigation of this guide reveals some common themes which are: racial justice, equity, fairness, sustainability, and shared prosperity...
“This whole narrative the globalists are creating is likely part of a greater plan–one which will have many strings attached, such as global IDs and carbon footprint trackers. As J. Michael Evans of the Alibaba group declared at the World Economic Forum’s 2022 annual meeting: “We are developing through technology the ability for consumers to measure their own carbon footprint…where they are traveling, how they are traveling, WHAT THEY ARE EATING, what they are consuming...”
“Other hints of this same agenda come from the World Bank Group. They, along with the United Nations, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Secure Identity Alliance, Mastercard, the World Food Program, and others have big plans for their universal ID program that is built upon sustainable goals…”
“Here’s a few questions for the Rockefeller Foundation, Alibaba, and the World Bank–Will this universal ID be mandatory in order to receive the benefits of these food systems? Will our trackable carbon footprint affect what and how much we can eat? If we defy the approved narrative, will we be locked out of the program? How will food wealth be shared from one nation to another in order to provide ‘equity’?
“The truth is that food can be used as a weapon. So, what do we do about it? Of course, we must take this issue to our Great Provider, Jesus Christ, who is very aware of the true narrative surrounding this issue. No matter what happens, we must remember that God is more than able to provide for all our needs. Like the story of Elijah and the ravens, God can use the most unique ways to sustain us. The ravens brought Elijah bread and meat twice a day. In our times of need, God will not fail us.” Let’s pray about this now.
Pray with me:
Father, we trust You as our provider. You will not forsake us in times of famine or difficulties. We resist fear - WE WILL NOT FEAR.
We do pray, however, for Your mercy and grace in this coming season. We pray against the starvation that could occur among millions of people around the world. We ask for a miracle from You to stop this from occurring.
We pray against any sinister plan by globalists to generate this food shortage in order to control people around the world. There are evil people in the world seeking to control us. We ask You to remove them from their positions of wealth and power. Dry up their funds and remove their influence.
Give strategies to Your people as they navigate through these times. May we be prepared for what is coming, both through Your supernatural provision and through wise planning. And may we, like Joseph, be used to provide for and sustain many, regardless of how difficult things become.
We pray all of this in the name of Jesus, amen.
We declare that God, our provider, will never fail us nor forsake us.
