The Devil’s Attack on Genetics

No comments

In this world we have God’s creation in one side and the devil’s corruption in the other. Concerning God’s creation, the Apostle Paul tells us, “For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving.” First Timothy 4:4 (ESV) However, the devil has been attacking God’s creation and attempting to destroy his plan and destiny for us for a long time. The devil has gone after the genetics of everything on this earth. We see this in Genesis 6:1-4

When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose. Then the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not abide inman forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years.” The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came into the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown. (ESV)

Beloved, this is the iniquity of all iniquities. Fallen angels were seduced by the beauty of the women and took them as they please. The word “took” in verse 2 is the Hebrew word, lāqaḥ: meaning “to take, to get. Its exact meaning must be discerned from its context. It is used of grasping (grabbing) or seizing (snatching) a person or an animal.”[1] This fallen angels were not asking permission! Genesis 6:5-7 describes to us the spiritual condition of mankind after this attack took place and also made it obvious that these fallen angels extended their Genetic corruption to everything else in God’s creation,

The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord regretted that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart. So the Lord said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them.” (ESV)

This is the reason why God sent the flood to destroy everything on this earth with the exception of Noah, his family and the animals that were not genetically contaminated. God always reserves a remnant! “The word genetics stems from the ancient Greek γενετικός genetikos meaning “genitive”/”generative”, which in turn derives from γένεσις genesis, meaning “origin”.[4][5][6] Romans 8:19-21 tells us,

For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. (ESV)

God’s creation was subject to futility, that is “worthlessness.”[2] God’s creation awaits its freedom from corruption, that is, “…ruin, decay, generally a fraying or wasting away.”[3] This is what the devil has done by contaminating the genetics of God’s creation; a total rebellion against God. This rebellion started in Genesis 6 and it continues to this day.  The Center for Food Safety  “…estimated that upwards of 75% of processed foods on supermarket shelves – from soda to soup, crackers to condiments – contain genetically engineered ingredients.”[4] 

The Bible has a lot to say about Genetics. Genesis 1:11-12 tells us, “And God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation, plantsyielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, on the earth.” And it was so. 12 The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.” (ESV) Noticed that the Bible tell us “…each according to its kind.” We do not determine what kind we or anything in nature is, God does. First Corinthians 15:38-39 tells us,

But God gives it a body as he has chosen, and to each kind of seed its own body. 39 For not all flesh is the same, but there is one kind for humans, another for animals, another for birds, and another for fish. First Corinthians 15:38-39 (ESV)

Leviticus 19:19 makes this point very clear, “You shall keep my statutes. You shall not let your cattle breed with a different kind. You shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor shall you wear a garment of cloth made of two kinds of material.” Leviticus 19:19 (ESV) God is asking the children of Israel to stay pure and not to mix.

Holiness is about staying away from the pattern and the corruption of the world and placing our focus and lifestyle on God. The original apostles understood the world in that way; they did not eat what everybody ate, they saw themselves as God’s people; everything else was corrupt, and they were right. They just needed to understand that God was also on a mission to rescue his creation from the world.

Beloved, all of this obsession with many genders comes straight out of the rebellion of Genesis 6; verse 11 tells us, “Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight, and the earth was filled with violence.” (ESV) The word corrupt here is the Hebrew word, šāḥaṯ:  “A verb meaning to spoil, to ruin, to destroy, to pervert, to corrupt, to become corrupt, to wipe out.[5] What a depressive condition! We went from a world where everything was good to a world where the earth is filled with perversion. This perversion is rejecting who God created us to be and calling ourselves what we are not.
