I would like to explore the subject of DNA so we can have a better understanding of the evidence that we gather. Since the days of J. Edgar Hoover there has been a move by the justice community in America to use more scientific testimony. Since it has been proven that eyewitness testimony ca be unreliable and subjective to the political influence our judicial system continues work to prevent a miscarriage of justice.
DNA analysis is a tool used to accurately identify an individual but even this process can cause a miscarriage of Justice. If a person receives a bone marrow transplant he or she will produce blood with DNA for the donor. Yet if you check the DNA from a mouth swab of the person receiving the transplant the analysis would indicate their original DNA.
In Christendom the testimony or confession is given as credentials of citizenship in the Kingdom. But now that we know that testimony can be corrupted we in this day also look for a more accurate ways to identify followers of Christ.
2 Tim 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
One of the unique things about Jesus was His conception as a human. Jesus the second Adam like the first Adam also did not have an earthly Father. One of the reasons I believe Jesus in scripture (Mat 23:9) asks us not to call any man on earth our Father is because He wants us to be aware that God alone is our Father. However due too temporal effects on our conscience the purpose and calling of our lives becomes diffused and the memory of original intent for being can actually become lost.
Because we carry the DNA of Jesus we can reproduce the DNA of God. This is one way to we can see God our Father and the effect of His original intent. God has always desired man to freely want to be in intimate fellowship with Him and to help us He recorded His law of fellowship on our heart. The exercise of human free will has rarely worked in concert with the will of God. So time and time again we see recorded in biblical history where God manifested His Presence to impact our conscience for the benefit of mankind.
Today there is an emergence in religious theology and practice trying to better express an understanding of what was revealed by Christ as it relates to God our Father and His fellowship with humans. As humans become aware that they carry inside themselves the Spiritual life force of God they will begin to express that which supernaturally feeds them. Jesus during an encounter with a woman who was considered an outcast of the religious complex of that day, was ask by His disciples if He was hungry and Jesus replied that he eats a spiritual meat which was is invivible in this temporal realm.
My encouragement is for us to continue to seek this spiritual realm known as God’s Kingdom. It is my hope that we learn to cut off our earthly Fathers and connect with our true spiritual Father. I hope that even while we still exist in this material realm we learn to do more than simply acknowledge the existence of the spiritual realm. To live in the Kingdom of God implies that we have the understanding and skill to be sustained from a place that is not seen or understood in this material reality.
Jesus not only demonstrated that it was possible but He made available to us after He cleansed our temples so the very Presence of our Father’s Holy Spirit could live in us. Peter a disciple of Jesus experienced this. While in a trance he saw a vision of religiously unclean animals and he heard a voice say to him kill and eat. However Peter resisted the spiritual instruction and argued defending the status quo of his religious training. Scripture (Acts 10:15) also records that this vision happened three times during the trance and each time a voice in the vision also said “What God has cleansed you must not call common.” This is the second time the bible records Peter denial of spiritual truth for religious tradition.
John 20:21-23 So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”
Likewise today we face the same challenge. Do we remain living in the material world resisting revelation of true spiritual reality and continuew to call sinners unclean, or do we forgive. We have been given the authority to forgive sin and in the name of Christ, declare clean what the material world says is unclean. If we become aware of our true spiritual condition we can become strong sanctifying agents for God’s Kingdom.
God continues to make aware His intention to cultivate deep fellowship with humankind. His eyes roam the earth looking for partners to aid in the knowledge of Himself and our relationship with Him. So the question remains, whose DNA do we carry? When we execute our free will we answer this question. Our actions speak volumes as to which world we are aware of and whose will we desire to see manifest.
…His Kingdom shall have no end.
