An increasing number of believers have come to the belief that the “Mark of the Beast” in Revelation will include genetic “upgrades,” creating super-soldiers with super-human powers and abilities – both in the natural as well as the spiritual realm.  Many will fall for such “enhancements” believing that they will then be super powerful, free from all disease, have their lifespans extended (and perhaps someday obtain immortality), have their youthfulness restored, etc.  But with all of this comes a very deep and dark deception, perhaps Satan’s greatest deception since Adam and Eve were deceived by the serpent to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

We as human beings have been created in the image of God.  At the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, we as believers in Christ will be given glorified bodies that will be immortal.  They will be bodies that will not experience pain or illness – bodies with supernatural powers and abilities that we can’t even imagine!  In this glorified state, we as redeemed humanity will even judge and rule of over angels and the whole angelic kingdom (1 Corinthians 6:2-3).  Doesn’t this just blow your mind!  The Scripture even declares that “no eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind conceived what God has prepared for those who love him…”

Satan has masterminded this great deception, believing that we can become gods and goddesses who are immortal apart from our Creator.  And we can see it happening all around us – in movies, in music, it is laced all throughout the social media, and on and on.  The transhumanist agenda is becoming more and more blatant as our society becomes more and more desensitized.  But it is all a big lie from the pit of hell – these so called “genetic upgrades” will render humans, made in the image of the One True God, to become transformed into darkened, hybrid like beings.  As a matter of fact, taking the “Mark of the Beast” will cause human beings to become so altered that they will no longer be able to be redeemed by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ (Revelation 14:9-11).

And what will these altered hybrid like creatures do?  It is chilling to realize that these altered unredeemed humans will be used to brutally and violently kill those who haven’t sold their souls to the anti-christ though receiving these genetic upgrades.  There will be a massive global slaughter targeting Christians and all other resisters (a fourth of the whole earth) through “the wild beasts of the earth (Revelation 6:8).”   The Greek word for “beasts” here is “Therion” which means bestial, violent, ripping, and tearing.  In this passage “Therion” does not refer to wild animals gone mad but to altered, hybrid, beast like creatures who will become so dark that they will be used by the ultimate beast, the anti-christ, to slaughter over a billion people worldwide.

So, what is God going to do to counter this great and vast army of super soldiers under the direction of Lucifer and the anti-christ.  It is a biblical principle that Satan never creates anything original.  The devil is not the creator and so he can only counterfeit what the One True God does and makes.  In other words, Satan is a good copycat.  I truly believe that the transhumanist movement to achieve immortality apart from God is the counterfeit to the bodily resurrection of true believers in Christ.  At that time, we will have super powerful bodies that will be alive without pain or death forever.

So, let’s go on a Biblical adventure and see what the Lord is planning to counter the transhumanistic agenda.  Have you ever wondered how Caleb could declare to Joshua at eighty-five years old – “now then, just as the Lord promised, he has kept me alive for forty-five years since the time he said this to Moses, while Israel moved about in the wilderness. So here I am today, eighty-five years old! 11 I am still as strong today as the day Moses sent me out; I’m just as vigorous to go out to battle now as I was then. 12 Now give me this hill country that the Lord promised me that day. You yourself heard then that the Anakites were there and their cities were large and fortified, but the Lord helping me, I will drive them out just as he said.” So why didn’t Caleb age?  How was he able to maintain the strength and energy of his younger days?

And isn’t it shocking that at the ripe old age of eighty-nine years old, that Sarah was taken into Abimelech, a Philistine King’s, harem?  The King had to have access to the most beautiful young women among the Philistines.  Do you really think that he would take Sarah into his harem if she looked old and had wrinkles?

And what about Samson?  The Bible says that through the anointing on Samson’s hair, the power of the Holy Spirit would come on him, enabling him to kill one thousand men with the jawbone of a donkey.  Even Mike Tyson in his prime could not come close to doing that kind of damage.

And then there is David’s mighty men.  Josheb-Basshebeth who was the chief of the Three killed eight hundred men in one encounter with his spear.  Abishai, the brother of Joab, raised his spear against three hundred men and killed them all.  And the list goes on and on.

So, what’s my point?  Another interpretive principle is that the Old Testament is filled with types and shadows of what was to come in its fullness in the New Covenant through Jesus’ death and resurrection.  At the time that Sarah, Caleb, Samson, and David’s mighty men were alive, the land of Palestine was filled with giants – Nephilim who continued the mixed bloodlines of evil cosmic beings who mated with humans going back to the pre-flood days of Noah.  Goliath wasn’t just a bigger, badder version of Shaq or LeBron James!

Now check out this passage from Zechariah 12:8, “In that day, the Lord will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; the one who is feeble among them in that day will be like David, and the house of David shall be like God, like the angel of the Lord leading them.”  So, what does this mean?  If you read Zechariah in its context it is referring to relentless attacks against Jerusalem and Judah in the time right before the return of Jesus Christ.  Again, according to a principle of Biblical interpretation, I believe this passage not only refers to literal Jerusalem and Israel but to spiritual Israel as well, which would include the remnant of Christian believers.

Could it be possible that a remnant of God’s people will walk in the supernatural power that Samson, David, and David’s mighty men walked in?  Could it be possible that those of us believers who are alive at the time, even at the age of seventy, eighty, and ninety, that we will have our youth restored like Caleb?  Could it be that at the resurrection, at the seventh trumpet blast in Revelation 11:15ff, that the Bride of Christ, like Enoch, would walk so closely in intimacy with God that we would have authority in Christ to overcome our last enemy – death itself?

I have come to really enjoy all the superhero movies – movies like Captain America, Guardians of the Galaxy, the Avengers, etc.  Of course, I realize even the good superheroes in these movies do not operate out of the power of the One True Creator God and that these movies are desensitizing the population at a subconscious level to believe the lie of the transhumanist agenda through gene manipulation.  However, I can also feel the Holy Spirit speaking through these movies as well.  The Lord tells us that soon enough the God of peace will crush Satan under our feet.  Notice it says our feet!  Are we as Christians going to sit around and be passive when children right now are being programmed as sex slaves?  What are we going to do about the reality that millions of babies, children, and even adults are being viciously tortured and murdered as sacrifices to Satan.  Are we going to let injustice and evil just continue to run rampant?  As for me (and I know my wife Shauna feels the same way), we will fight to the death for our God and for our Bridegroom King Jesus.  We will continue to fight as hard as we can – spiritually, and physically when it comes to it.  Who will join us in the final battle???
