The Genetics of the Deception
The technology known as recombinant DNA in fact now makes it possible for a grown man or woman to be altered at the genetic level. If a non-human gene were introduced into the human genome then the person would no longer be fully human but would by definition become a hybrid. The ancient name for a creature that is composed of different kinds is known as a chimera and that is also the name given to hybrid creatures by scientists today. We considered some strange creatures in a previous chapter such as the spider goat and the green glowing pigs to name a few.
Recombinant DNA is “hybrid DNA that has been created from more than one source.”[i] The basic procedure is where a DNA strand is opened up and then a gene from another organism is inserted making a new strand of DNA. Then the RNA replicates the new strand and it is passed into the entire system. “When recombinant DNA is then further altered or changed to host additional strands of DNA, the molecule formed is referred to as “chimeric” DNA molecule, with reference to the mythological chimera that consisted as a composite of several animals.”[ii] By means of recombinant DNA, may be able to convince humanity to insert demonic genes, perceived as desirable, into the human genome. The genetic composition of the person, therefore, would result in that person becoming a chimera.
Using recombinant DNA, a fully mature man could inject himself with the selected gene or genes of another species. The process which is really just a matter of copying and pasting is explained by T. Wakayama et al., in the July 1998 issue of Nature:
In the late 70s, Dr. Stan Cohen (Stanford) studying antibiotic resistance plasmids in E. coli, and Dr. Herb Boyer (UCSF) studying restriction enzymes […] realized that they could use restriction enzymes to cut both plasmid DNA as well as DNA containing a gene of interest, and combine the DNAs so that the “sticky ends” of each DNA could be joined, or “spliced”, to make a recombinant DNA (i.e. bacteria human).[iii]
Therefore, we can see how a man with access to technology and to Satan’s seed could then merely inject it into his DNA; then once inserted his own RNA would copy the new strands with the foreign gene(s) and it would spread throughout his entire system. Once the process of replication was 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 – a beast!
And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain, (Revelation 13:15).
Approximately three and a half years after coming to power, the Beast will require everyone to take his mark, the number of his name and to worship his image. Exactly how that will be realized is impossible to know. We can suggest however that the image that the false prophet gives breath to could be some transhuman or transgenic creature or some form of synthetic biology – the important thing to note is that it will truly have breath and will not simply be a clever trick. The technology already exists to make some version of the image. This image is what will then cause all to take the mark.
Also it [the image of the beast] causes all, […] to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666, (Revelation 13:16-18).
Transhumanist and end-times researcher Tom Horn has written a great deal about the coming consequences of man changing himself at the source code level.[iv] Horn’s wife Nita has suggested that recombinant DNA (RDNA) may be the means by which the mark of the beast is introduced onto an unsuspecting world[v] through the rewriting of one’s DNA to so that the person is no longer fully human but is part beast (Antichrist).[vi] The suggestion appears valid in light of all that we have learned.
Presumably some point after the, humanity, in an effort to not be removed from the planet (like those taken) and to be able to evolve to be like the Beast (the supposed leader of the “ ”), will allow their DNA to be rewritten thus altering their image – that image that was in ’s image (though fallen) will therefore become genetically like the Beast and of course Satan and his angels. The mark then would simply be the proof (or perhaps the means by which) one has undergone the genetic transformation. This action of taking the mark will condemn them to hell forever because they will no longer be in the . How sad it is to realize that what man will trade his soul for God was willing to give for free. Man wants to augment himself with greater powers and to go on living forever – but without God. God however, has already made a way for man to have those powers and eternal life if he will simply humble himself and ask.
To whom would Satan be willing to give of his own genetic material? Crossing the line of mixing “different kinds” is against the natural law of God. The sons of God that did so in the days of Noah got themselves thrown into the pit / abyss / Tartarus as testified by Peter who says: “For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but threw them into hell and locked them up in chains in utter darkness, to be kept until the judgment,” (2 Peter 2:4). The penalty for crossing that barrier is ostensibly imprisonment until the final judgment. We know that Satan will find himself thrown into the abyss right after the Great Tribulation and perhaps “fathering” his own son is the line that he is not permitted to cross. Therefore, Satan must be very selective of this person. We can presume that this person will have all of the worldly advantages possible: the best education, all the power, riches, and technology. He will worship Lucifer and will lust for the ultimate power to have greater than human capacity. This person will indeed be the one that Jesus spoke of who gains the whole world but loses his soul (Matthew 16:26). The kingdoms of the world that Satan offered to Jesus this person will possess, (see appendix five for a socio-economic sketch of the Antichrist).
He will obtain Satan’s own genetic material and then insert it into his body using Recombinant DNA. His body’s own RNA will then cause the Satanic strain to be replicated into various parts of his body and once completed, his genetic make-up (DNA) will be a new code – a code not strictly from Adam (even in Adam’s fallen state), but will be augmented code that has been mixed with the Satan just as God declared in Genesis 3:15. Satan will have finally succeeded in imitating the [vii]. This man will literally become the genetic son of Satan because he will have Satan’s seed mingled in with his own. This conclusion fulfills Genesis 3:15 plus it is consistent with what other did in Noah’s day. It is consistent with Daniel 2:43 and also explains how the Little Horn rises up to where the other horns are and how he is able to cast them to the ground. It is consistent with the technology of transhumanism in that dissimilar kinds can now be mingled and is also consistent with the research of John Mack and David Jacobs and the “aliens” want to create a hybrid race. Lastly, it squares with the expectation that “aliens […] will select a human person and endow him with superhuman powers and knowledge. This man will lead us to world government and world peace.”
It is reasonable and probably that the mark of the Beast will also be an imitation of what the Lord wants to do for believers – He will restore us spiritually and genetically – we will be like him, we will be in his image, we will be conformed to his glorious body we will have God’s seed in us. By Satan giving his genetic material to the Beast (who “replaces” Jesus) and then the Beast offering (forcing) all to take of his altered genetic material – Satan will be perfectly imitating our salvation. Probably one reason people will desire to take of his seed is because of the powers they are promised. We have seen both in the movies and by real life personal testimony the “aliens” appear as beings of light. Of course, believers in Jesus will actually receive true bodies of light – but the Beast will promise glorious bodies which he will ultimately not deliver. However, those transformed with the DNA change (Mark of the Beast) will receive traits of Satan – possibly being that they will not be able to die which we see when the locusts torment mankind for five months and thought they seek death but it will flee from them (Revelation 9:6) – this could be because they possess traits from Satan (who does not die).
Some two thousand years after the true incarnation and six thousand after the fall of man in the Garden, Satan, the Serpent, will have fulfilled the prophecy that God spoke to him of the enmity between his seed and her seed. Having his own seed mingled with a son of Adam and with today’s technology, Satan can finally try to replicate his own seed in every last person on the planet. If he can accomplish this then perhaps his own fate can be averted; perhaps he can succeed in his war to destroy the image of God genetically contained in man.
Satan’s long war to destroy the image of God will ultimately fail. Though he will successfully deceive many and even apparently be just moments away from success, the Lord will in the end intervene. More than likely victory will appear to be just on the verge of achieving – very much like how it was in the days of Noah. Every human on the planet, except Noah and his family, were corrupted morally and perhaps also genetically as well. With only eight standing in the way, Satan must have felt that victory was his – only to watch his entire devilish work gasp for air and then perish in the flood. So too will the return of the Lord most likely be. Just at the last moment, the Lord Jesus will return to save the Jewish people and all others who trusted in Him during the Great Tribulation. He will destroy the Antichrist and the False Prophet in the Lake of Fire and Satan and his angels will be bound for one thousand years in the Pit. The Lord will also judge the nations and set up His Kingdom which will last for one thousand years initially and then forever. It is during the millennium that the conditions that were lost in the Garden of Eden will be restored to the earth, to the animals and to man himself. In the end, Jesus will crush the head of the Serpent once and for all.

[iii] Plasmids, small extra-chromosomal circles of bacterial DNA, can be used to carry DNA into bacterial cells. Each plasmid contains about 5 genes, and doesn’t mind carrying around one more. Once the bacteria has a copy of the foreign gene, it treats it as one of its own and replicates it every time it replicates the plasmid (this is called DNA cloning). Over the course of a day or two, billions of bacteria will be churning out the protein coded by the gene inserted. Restriction Enzymes are produced by bacteria in response to bacteriophage (viral) infection. The enzymes chop the invading DNA up into pieces by recognizing specific DNA sequences (called restriction sites) – usually palindromic. When these enzymes cut DNA, they often leave overhangs on the ends of the DNA called “sticky ends”. http://www.biology.iupui.edu/biocourses/N100H/ch15biotech.html. Berg et al. 2007.
