Epigenetics & Ancestral Transmitted Evils
The fascinating topic Epigenetics (which is “information” that sits above the genome that directs the programming of DNA) needs to be explored and investigated as it relates to generational curses, demons and other spiritual realities that could be passed down from one generation to the next. Recently, someone in the UK sent me an intriguing article on this subject. Allow me to paste a portion of the article to you, then share a few thoughts of my own:
“Epigenetics reveals that not only do we pass along the DNA sequence to our children, but we also pass along the epigenetic instructions to them. In other words, information can be inherited and transmitted through generations. In an experiment on ‘transgenerational epigenetic inheritance’, researchers at Emory University, trained mice to fear a fruity odor by pairing it with a mild electric shock to the foot. Ten days later, the mice were allowed to mate. Incredibly, their pups feared the odor even without having encountered the smell before. But even more fascinating is that the offspring of those pups – the grandchildren – were born with the same specific memory. We see the mice study apply to humans. One example were the attacks of 9/11. Among the thousands of people directly exposed to the attack were 1,700 pregnant women. Some of these women developed symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Their children reacted with high levels of fear and stress around loud noises, unfamiliar people, or new foods. It seems the infants inherited the nightmare that their mothers experienced on that day.”
Medical science points to the reality of what we as disciples of Jesus would consider as ancestral transmitted evil. The researchers discovered that “information” can be transmitted through the generations. Well, obviously, some of that information being passed down would be considered evil. Not everything your ancestors experienced or encountered was good. Much of their lives dealt with evil of all sorts. That evil is transmitted from one generation to the next.
Every human being, on this planet, has ancestral transmitted evils stored within their lives. Exodus 20 and Numbers 14, clearly teach, among many other passages, of these realities. So, these evils must be driven out of our lives. Is it possible? Yes, all things are possible with God. The shed blood of Christ can cleanse us from all unrighteousness and evil (1 John 1:9). Our spirit nature immediately is reborn when we apply the blood of Christ upon our lives. The spirit nature raises to be with Christ and generational evils cannot affect us in the spirit from that point forward.
However, our bodies and souls (as we are tripartite beings with spirit, soul and body) need the continuing and daily work of Jesus which includes all elements of sanctification including the renunciation of ancestral evil. Generational evils leave the spirit nature once we are born again in Christ but now resides in our body and soul natures. Demons hold onto spiritual legal rights and that includes ancestral evils. These rights need to be removed so we can become spiritually cleaner and freer. How? Only one power is able –the power of the shed blood of Jesus (Revelation 20 tells us we have defeated Satan by the blood of the lamb). Consider these truths and start dealing with the ancestral transmitted evils in your life today.
