“And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.”-Rev. 9:6,KJV
Hollywood’s latest blockbuster World War Z is a future apocalyptic film that portrays the world in the near future where a lethal virus, spread through a single bite, is turning healthy people into walking zombies, vicious, unthinking and feral. Since Victor Halperin’s White Zombie was released in 1932, a zombie apocalypse as a theme has occupied the cinema screens for over 80 years now reappearing in different shapes and forms in films. Popular culture has become undeniably fixated upon the zombie apocalypse phenomenon for a reason: Zombies are the ultimate enemy. They’re frightening, but they all start out as normal humans, and the loss of their humanity renders them pitiable. Their blind lust for living flesh makes them a force to fight against, but their existence is lonely and somewhat sad. Best of all, zombies do far more damage psychologically than physically — even if we see characters devoured by a horde, the living always suffer more than the dead.
Is this simply a fascination of the human mind with the condition of the dead, that leads to this kind of fixation with the zombie apocalypse theme, or is there some Biblical truth to support the idea? Surprisingly there is!
Contaminating the human DNA in Noah’s days
In order to understand the concept of a zombie apocalypse, we need to go back in time before the time of Noah’s Flood.In the first pages of the Bible ,in Genesis 6:9 we read the following description of Noah: “These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God”(Genesis 6:9) A passing reading of this verse poses no problem in understanding what the verse is trying to convey.It is true that Noah was a righteous man and that is why God chose him and his family from his contemporaries to escape the worldwide Flood and the end of the humankind of its time.Although Noah was a righteous man he wasn’t perfect! The Bible clearly shows that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”(Romans 9:23) and that would include Noah who was a descendant of Adam, the first man who introduced sin into mankind.How is it then that Noah was perfect?The original word used here is the Hebrew word “Tamim” which means without blemish, and is the technical word for bodily and physical perfection, and not moral. Hence it is used of animals of sacrificial purity in other parts of the Bible.Why is this significant? Because the Word of God makes the point that God chose Noah also for his genetic purity.But why would that be an issue? It sounds almost as if no one else apart from Noah and his family at that particular point in time where genetically pure,100% human! Well, this is the case!
Satan’s purpose since the Fall has always been to corrupt God’s creation, not just morally, that is easy to do. He wants to corrupt God’s creation physically. We are all created in God’s image:”So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created them.”(Genesis 1:27)Satan hates this and he and his followers, the fallen angels have tried to do everything to change this. Before the great Flood, the fallen angels had sexual relations with mortal women in order to corrupt the human DNA.The result of that union was the birth of human hybrids called Nephilim. This corruption was to such an extent that ultimately only Noah and his family were found pure genetically and qualified to continue the human kind after the Flood :” So the LORD said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created–and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground–for I regret that I have made them.”(Genesis 6:7)
What happened in Noah’s days is important for us today because Jesus warned that:””Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man.”(Luke 17:26) Satan and his fallen angels will attempt once again to contaminate the human DNA in order to ruin God’s image and lead humans to destruction. The difference with our times though is that Satan and his fallen angels are not allowed to materialize once again and have relations with human women in order to produce hybrid offspring.The book of Jude clearly shows that these beings are restricted from materializing in human bodies for the time being:”And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their proper dwelling–these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day.”(Jude 6)
Without the ability to materialize directly and corrupt the human DNA via the method of sexual relations these fallen angels are going to use a different method this time to achieve their purpose.These fallen angels are behind the resurgence of technology today that aims to do just that, to manipulate and rewrite the DNA sequence once again.ENTER CRISPR technology: Picture traveling back in time in the early 1900’s and trying to describe to someone the modern computer. It’s a box with buttons and a display which allows people to process and manipulate all forms of digital information. They wouldn’t have the faintest idea what you’re talking about and would dismiss it straight away as the exotic invention of some sort of mechanical encyclopedia.You’d probably try to explain how and why this invention would change the world 100 years into the future, but you might find it hard to articulate the impact of this technological breakthrough in man’s evolution of technological advancements.
This is exactly what it sounds like trying to explain CRISPR , a technological advancement of the same magnitude as personal computers to people today.The only difference is that we are not dealing with computers this time but with gene editing. CRISPR-Cas9 is a special gene editing tool which allows scientists to cut away segments of DNA from the genome of any organism, move them around, or replace them entirely with exceptional precision.Think of it as the cut-and-paste tool in Microsoft Word except with the fundamental building blocks of life rather than numbers and digital information. As CRISPR co-discoverer Jennifer Doudna, a professor of biochemistry at the University of California, Berkley, explains it, CRISPR is essentially a “molecular scalpel for genomes”.
CRISPR is dependent on a unique RNA molecule to locate the specified sequence of DNA and cut it out. To perform this, CRISPR uses a protein known as Cas9, a unique enzyme which is guided by RNA to target and snip out segments of GENETICS.
We have reached a time in man’s history that the advances in man’s manipulation of DNA and genetics coupled with the Luciferian agenda that finances and promotes these advancements can lead to the point that human DNA is altered to that extent that will be impossible for man to reverse the changes.We can then begin to grasp how using the existing technology instead of conventional methods of reproduction the fallen angels can once again contaminate the human DNA in order to promote their own agenda.Satan’s seed could merely inject it into our DNA; then once inserted his own RNA would copy the new strands with the foreign gene(s) and it would spread throughout our entire system. Once the process of replication is complete the man would no longer be a mere human; he would, in essence, be a chimera, a hybrid; he would be a chimera, a hybrid like the Nephilim of old.
Infecting the masses
As in the days of Noah so it is today.Back then all mankind had been contaminated to the point of no return and only 8 were found physically clean to continue the existence of the human race.So it has to be today. Satan and his angels have to convince the entire world to become part of this infection.Of course, no one in their mind would willingly allow himself to be infected with Satan’s seed, therefore this en-mass alteration has to be sold to the masses disguised as a more attractive and palatable package.Is there any indication in the Bible that this will be a future development? The book of Revelation once again seems to indicate that this will be the case.In the book of Revelation, we read of an end time World Leader, coined by many Christians as the Antichrist or the “beast” who will do the bidding for his real master, Satan.This man will impose upon all the planet a new financial system that is described in the Bible as the “mark of the beast”.We don’t know yet the specifics of the implementation of this system but what we do know is that it will be universal and it will be imposed on the aftermath of a spectacular event, the seeming resurrection of the Antichrist from the dead! We read in Revelation 13:16,17:”It(the beast) also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads,so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.”For some time and for a very good reason many Christians have been advocating that the mark of the beast will be a microchip(see, RFID technology) inserted under your skin which will substitute any currency we use today. All transactions will become immaterial overnight substituting hard currency with immaterial transactions stored in a microchip under your skin. Although this is a very likely scenario nevertheless the “mark of the beast” will be much more than this.
We know this because the “mark of the beast” described in the book of Revelation is something that involves worship! We read about those who take the “mark of the beast” in Revelation 13:8, KJV:”And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him(the beast).” Never forget that Satan’s plan never changed, he craves worship and he will do anything to achieve it.He wants to be worshipped as a god and he will manipulate events in a way that who partake of this “mark of the beast” will be ultimately offering their worship to him via his human earthly channel, the beast or Antichrist.His final and third attempt to tempt Jesus in the desert reveals his real crave for acceptance and worship only this time by all those who dwell on the earth:”All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”(Matthew 4:9, NIV)
What Satan really wants
Having achieved total control over the world’s financial system and indirect worship from “the dwellers of the earth” is not all that Satan wants.Remember that as in the days of Noah so it is is the future.Satan ultimately wants to destroy every human being on this planet but since this is not allowed by God he will attempt to render the whole planet non-redeemable or incapable of receiving Jesus’ sacrifice as a basis for their salvation.Remember what was the first prophecy ever uttered in the Bible by God himself in Genesis 3:15:”And I will put enmity between you(=Satan) and the woman(=God’s heavenly organisation), and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”Ever since the utterance of this prophecy, Satan’s plan has always been to destroy the seed of the “woman.” Initially, he killed the first member of that offspring, Jesus, and ultimately he wants to wipe out every other member current or future of that family. Furthermore, Satan wants to disqualify every living person on this planet from accepting Jesus’ sacrifice as a basis for salvation at the time of the end.We read in John 3:16:” “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Think about it which is the only way for Satan to stop humans achieving eternal life based on that sacrifice? By stopping them being human!
The book of Revelation clearly shows that by accepting the “mark of the beast” will automatically disqualify you from salvation which goes to show that this mark is much more than just a microchip that controls financial transactions it is a covert device that will alter you down to your molecular level and transform you into a hybrid or chimera deemed eternally damnable in God’s eyes. We read in Revelation 13:8:”All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast–all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.” This reference to those “who have not been written in the book of life since the creation of the world” is a covert phrase for those who have never been human since every person on this planet is given an opportunity to have his name written in that book.It sounds like that after receiving the “mark of the beast” men cease being human beings a redeemable image of God and become chimeras, beasts in the image of “the beast” and his Master, Satan.
The fake promise for eternal life
This “mark of the beast” incorporates much more than just a way of transacting or altering your person at DNA level.It is also a promise, a promise for eternal life.Jesus Christ by offering his life opened the door for all mankind to live forever.Christ coming back for the dead was a guaranty that all those who put faith in him will be marked for salvation and eternal life.On the other hand, the Antichrist will seemingly come back from the dead, having received a “deadly wound” but this will be enough for the masses to put faith in him and accept his marking as a guarantee for eternal life. “One of the heads of the beast(=antichrist) seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast.People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshipped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?”(Rev 13:3,4) Exactly how this promise for eternal life will be incorporated into the mark of the beast remains to be seen but the verse Revelation 9:6 seems to explain the after effect of this promise.Men will achieve some sort of immortality when we read “… in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.”
