180. Divine Nature Assimilated

Mike Parsons
with Jeremy Westcott  

For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart (Heb 4:12).

The deepest level of transformation is the dividing or separating of soul and spirit, bone and marrow: at the genetic level, in our very DNA.

A record of past generations

We each get half our genes from our mother and half from our father, just as they got half each from their parents, back and back generation upon generation. Therefore we all carry a record of our past generations back to Adam and Eve. Only about 2% of our DNA is coded for our physical appearance and characteristics, and 98% used to be considered ‘junk’, because scientists couldn’t figure out what it was for. But it has been found that DNA is not only responsible for the construction of our body, but also serves as data storage and in communication.

Programming DNA

Russian scientists recently found that the genetic code, especially in the ‘junk’ 98%, follows the same rules as all our human languages. By exposing DNA to sound frequency patterns on a laser beam, they were able to influence both the DNA frequency and the genetic information itself. Living DNA substance will react to language programmed on modulated laser rays and even to radio waves. By applying sound vibration and language through light the human body can be programmed by language, words and thoughts.

It seems that depression, grief, sadness, anger, negativity and unforgiveness can actually program our DNA to produce sickness and disease in our cells, whilst praise, joy, peace and forgiveness can program it to produce healing, health and wholeness.
Could it be that anointed prayer and laying-on of hands release frequencies that can repair, restore and reprogram our DNA, resonating and vibrating with heat and power? People have been healed during worship services, as their DNA responded to the sounds of heaven.

Faith words

We can apply faith words to change and call things back into wholeness. Matter is never destroyed, but just changes form, so something that once was can be called back into existence. Lost limbs, for example… And we know of the opposite effect too, instances in which tumours have dissipated on command. Could we direct things to change form? Jesus changed water into wine.

If you mix God’s grace (divine enabling strings of power that exist in the fabric of all our beings, at a sub-atomic quantum level) with faith filled words of agreement, that will produce a charge of anointing power.

Genetic triggers

We need to resonate at a frequency that can change things at a DNA genetic level. In that 98% of uncoded DNA, there are latent switches waiting to be triggered – by nurture, trauma, the environment, sin, or generational behaviours. We know that some conditions run in families, though not all members of the family may exhibit them. That is because these genetic switches turn on or off certain genes, giving individuals a predisposition to:

  • Disease – heart, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, liver, kidney etc.
  • Poor mental health – depression etc.
  • Addictions – alcohol, chemicals, food, sexual
  • Behaviours – sexuality, criminality, religious, occult

It is not that genetic factors waiting for triggers are any excuse for licence. We know that God always makes a way to escape from temptation, so we are all responsible for our own behaviour. Rather, it is that God desires to transform our lives if we will cooperate with Him. Perhaps we should consider just what we want to pass on to our children.

Transformation

There is a solution. It is called ‘repentance’ (which, as we know by now, really has nothing to do with ‘saying sorry’ and everything to do with choosing to come into line with how God thinks and speaks about us). We can be transformed from these genetic factors and conformed to the image and DNA of God; we can be restored to wholeness. We can apply the power of encountering God’s DNA in communion.

Supernatural abilities

There may also be triggers for God-like latent abilities or other supernatural abilities, already contained within our DNA. As we surrender ourselves wholly to Him, God may ‘turn on’ certain abilities that have been lost.

So the enemy counterfeits real abilities that Jesus demonstrated? We should not allow that to put us off demonstrating the authentic. Again, the secular world have picked up on these things, so you see plenty of books, films and TV series about characters who actively use ESP and telepathy, can fly, become invisible, teleport, heal, or manipulate matter. Although they may be presented as science fiction, these things have a basis in fact. Most Christians lag far behind the followers of the occult and the New Age in demonstrating supernatural abilities, because we have been warned off and told ‘you can’t touch that’.

This needs to change, and soon. I want to be able to do everything that Jesus did. If He could disappear from one place and reappear in another, I want to do that. If He could walk through a crowd of people who were trying to throw Him off a cliff – imagine what that was like – I want to do that. If Jesus was able to walk on water, turn water into wine, multiply food, and do healing miracles, I want to do that.

Jesus levitated into the air when He went back into heaven. Levitation? Surely that’s really dodgy stuff! Yes it is, when it’s done by occult practitioners. Not when done by Jesus. So what about if it’s done by us? There may be need for some of these abilities in the things that are coming. And what are the ‘greater things’ that Jesus spoke of in John 14:12?

The visible spectrum

I believe Adam could see more than we can see with our natural eyes. He had trans-dimensional vision: he could see into the realms of heaven, but he lost that bandwidth perception at the fall. Yet more was lost at the flood, after which the rainbow formed of only seven colours, and at the Tower of Babel, where God took away the ability to move things with sound.

We can only see a very small proportion of all the colours that exist. If we took the seven keys on a piano to stand for the seven colours in the spectrum of visible light, then a keyboard with all the wavelengths of invisible light would stretch to the moon.

The spiritual realm operates in a bandwidth we cannot see. But I believe Adam could see it, and that God intends us to see it. He wants us restored to original condition. DNA transformation occurs in us when the divine nature is assimilated. He wants us to be like Him, and to be revealed as His sons.

And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified (Rom 8:28-30).

Search me thoroughly, O God

Abilities latent within our DNA can be triggered by an encounter with the living God.

On the other hand, negative characteristics latent within our DNA can be triggered by iniquity, allowing the enemy access. If sickness and disease, weaknesses and patterns of bondage are lying in wait in my DNA, I want them transformed before they have the chance to be triggered.

Search me thoroughly, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way (Psa 139:23-24).

Vision Destiny 2015

Free download

Mike Parsons’ 3-session teaching series, Vision Destiny 2015, is available for free download from our website.

We believe that these messages contain important prophetic words for the people of God in 2015.

A reflection of God on earth?

Are we a shadow or reflection of God on earth so He can fully occupy us?

We are responsible for the revelation we have been given:
Are we aligned to that revelation?
Are we acting like forerunners?

“I am going to release the 7 spirits and your assigned councillors in greater measure
to those who will position themselves
and take the responsible seats of government.”

The Lion roars

This year will be the year where the Lion roars,
where Kingship will be revealed
and where enthronements take place,
where authority is released at a higher level.

You are a son of God, called to have dominion;
governmental authority,
in, and through, and around your life.

Judgment is coming

Judgment is coming:
God drawing a line, saying,
“This is me… and this is not”.

Judgment is not a punishment to death
but a decision to call us to choose life.

Impending upheaval

“The very stars are awaiting their repositioning orders, as Sons accept their call to action from their mandated positions of true governmental authority.

“Look to the constellations for the signs of impending upheaval
as the affairs of the nations are administered by the sons of God once more.
The stars will release their light and glory to the sons of God:
the resonance of their light and sound once again restored to divine order.”

You can download this latest 3-session teaching series, Vision Destiny 2015, completely free of charge from our website.

These key teaching sessions release important prophetic words for 2015. Whilst originally delivered in Freedom Church, so that some of the content relates specifically to the local body, much will be of value to the wider ekklesia of God (especially sessions 2 and 3, those titled ‘Vision Destiny 2015’).

179. Sealed Up Until the End of Time

Mike Parsons
with Jeremy Westcott – 

Information or revelation?

Through the centuries there has been a battle for truth: we have an enemy who does not want the church even to know about the supernatural, much less experience it! At the Constantinople council in 553 there was a lot of argument about what should and should not be included in the canon of scripture. Many books were removed at that time, and some wanted to throw out even the books of James, Peter, and Jude (all with a lot of the supernatural in them). Centuries later, even Martin Luther was unhappy with Hebrews, James and Peter.

During the dark ages, when people could not read the Bible, a lot of truth was lost. God has been restoring that truth over the last 1000 years, and there is ongoing revelation of truth. Please do not just accept everything I say, do not be satisfied with just information but go and seek God and get revelation for yourself. He often speaks to me through science fiction films, so He can speak to you through anything; just check that it lines up with who God is, His character and nature and the overall tenor of scripture. Examine things to see whether they are true (rather than to prove they are not)!

Now these (Bereans) were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so (Acts 17:11).

Sealed up

Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever (Dan 12:3).

God wants us to have insight. We need to have understanding, which only comes through the revelation of the Holy Spirit. God has spoken to us as a church about being like the sons of Issachar, understanding the times.

But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase (Dan 12:4).

The revelation that Daniel was bringing in that book was to be sealed up, so that the full understanding of it would not be available until the end of time. I believe now is that time, when people are freely travelling back and forth all over the earth, taking this knowledge everywhere. Because of modern technology, and especially the internet, knowledge is available now like never before.

He said, “Go your way, Daniel, for these words are concealed and sealed up until the end time. Many will be purged, purified and refined, but the wicked will act wickedly; and none of the wicked will understand, but those who have insight will understand” (Dan 12:9-10).

We are now in the days where God is refining and purifying so that Jesus can come back for a church without spot or blemish. We are in a time where God is doing things He has never done before.

Normalcy bias

Many people don’t believe that. The technical term is ‘normalcy bias’, defined as ‘a tendency to underestimate coming disaster, its effects and consequences’. Basically it means people are in denial, not wanting to accept that anything will be significantly different from the way it has always been. If something has never happened up to now, we assume it never will, and act accordingly.

But things are going to change drastically. It will be nothing like it is now.

The effects and consequences of what is coming are beyond most people’s understanding. God is now starting to open and unveil the books to show us those things so that we can be ready and prepared. That is what the Prophetic Timetable is about, God saying “Be prepared for what is coming”.

There is going to come a shaking of all the world’s systems. God will be behind it, but the enemy will be involved in the process. It will take place whether we are ready for it or not.

If God says something is going to happen, I want to be ready. Then, when it does, I will be in position to be used in God’s purposes to fulfil what He wants from His church, to raise her up above all the systems of the world, to provide the answers they do not have and so desperately need.

Something new

Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it? (Isa 43:19).

The implication of that question is that we might well not be aware of it. We always have to be looking out for the new thing God is doing – He rarely stays still for long. We must be prepared for change. When we sing ‘Strip everything away’, we must be prepared for Him to do just that. When we pray Psalm 139:23-24, we should expect God to show us what is in our lives so that he can change it.

For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart (Heb 4:12).

This is not primarily talking about the Bible, but about Jesus, the living Word of God (who created and holds everything together by the word of His power). He is living, active, and sharp; piercing, dividing and judging so that we can be restored to wholeness (nothing missing and nothing broken) and come back to God’s original intent and purposes.

Let’s cooperate, by presenting ourselves to Him. Let’s give Him permission, opening up our hearts to let Him in. Let’s allow God to do what He wants to do. Let’s pursue Him with everything we have. Let’s desire with all the desire of our heart that we will become one with Him (1Cor 6:17). That is the level of intimacy He wants.

He will remove every obstacle, every stumbling block and every chain even right down to stripping out all the impurities in our DNA so that we can be changed into the image of Jesus. So let’s be willing, open our hearts and let him transform us so that we can be ready for what is to come.

Strip everything away
‘Til all I have is You
Undo the veils
So all I see is You

I will pursue You
I will pursue Your presence…

(‘Pursuit’ – Daniel Bashta)

178. No Spot or Wrinkle

Mike Parsons
with Jeremy Westcott

For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both bones and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart (Heb 4:12).

God is looking to see us transformed (Rom 12:2), and bone and marrow are the deepest level of transformation, at the DNA level. The bone speaks of the structure of our lives and the marrow speaks of the source – red and white blood cells and stem cells.

Only 2% of the human DNA genetic code determines our physical appearance and characteristics. The other 98% used to be called junk DNA, but there are sequences, triggers and switches, in that 98% which turn on and off certain hidden attributes. For example, some diseases can be inherited but they only appear at certain times because of these triggers.

After their kind

Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their kind”; and it was so (Gen 1:24).

‘After their kind’ means according to the genetic material within their species. God’s will is not for things to get mixed up between species. Impurity gives the enemy legal rights to occupy areas of our lives and to occupy places of authority that should be ours in heaven. Jesus is returning for a spotless bride, a bride without impurity:

…that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless (Eph 5:27).

As in the days of Noah

For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like in the days of Noah (Matt 24:37).

Therefore we need to understand what it was like in the days of Noah, and we have posted about this before. There was genetic manipulation taking place in the time of Noah, and even after the flood, giants appeared in Ham’s genetic line.

Today there is a lot of genetic modification not only within species but between them. Scientific researchers are mixing DNA from animals and plants, which has been forbidden by God. GRIN technologies (Genetic, Robotic, Information Technology and Nanotechnology) are designed to transform human abilities. If they have cloned Dolly, the sheep, then certainly someone, somewhere is looking to clone a person, even if this is banned.

All these things are taking place now, in the times leading up to Jesus return.

He shall bruise your head

The Lord God said to the serpent…
“And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed;
He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel.”
(Gen 3:14-15).

Satan put in place two strategies to try to prevent the seed of woman ever being born. Firstly he traded with Adam and Eve to acquire human DNA. In killing Abel, Cain demonstrated the nature of his true father (just what Jesus saw in the Pharisees (John 8:44; Matt 23:31-32)). The sons of the evil one in the parable of the tares (Matt 13:38) are his sons genetically, not just spiritually.

Satan has always tried to wipe out the pure seed. He knew the pure seed would be his undoing. On the cross Jesus fulfilled that Genesis 3 prophecy by destroying satan’s work.

Angels who did not keep their own domain

But the enemy had another plan as well:

Now it came about, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose (Gen 6:1-2).

These sons of God were the watcher angels spoken of in Jude:

And angels who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode, He has kept in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day, just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire (Jude 6-7).

Only evil continually

The Nephilim [the word comes from the Hebrew for ‘fallen ones’] were on the earth in those days, and also afterward [after the flood] when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men [Gibborim] who were of old, men of renown… Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually (Gen 6:4-5).

Adam and Eve had been made in the image of God, but within 1200-1500 years men were ‘only evil continually’, so that God had to wipe them all out.

The Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. The Lord said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land”. But Noah found favour in the eyes of the Lord. These are the records of the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his generations; Noah walked with God. Noah became the father of three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth (Gen 6:6-10).

Noah walked in the realms of the spirit with God, just like Enoch. And the phrase ‘blameless in his generations’ is very important: God found one man who was genetically pure. We do not know about his wife, or his sons, though if you look at how Ham behaved later (Gen 9:22-25), it is not surprising that we find Nephilim on the earth again even after the flood (Gen 6:4).

We all come from those 3 families, so our DNA may well be polluted. Maybe it already affects us today, or maybe it is ready to be ‘switched on’ to affect us in the future. We need to deal with it so that we become genetically pure. Then God can ‘switch on’ the supernatural abilities that were lost by Adam.

Transformation 2012 15 (1)

Satan fell in eternity. God formed time to contain satan’s sin, and in eternity to come there will be no record of what he did. But through out Old Testament times, satan tried to pollute the seed.

The ‘Nephilim agenda’

Randy DeMain has written extensively about the resurgence of Nephilim today. If the days of Noah were days of genetic impurity, he suggests that so too will be the days leading up to Jesus’ return. The Nephilim will not turn up this time as giants: they have refined their methods and will use such techniques as transhumanism, hybridization, genetic DNA modification; perhaps even hybrids developed by trans-dimensional beings from DNA harvested through what is popularly known as ‘alien abduction’. This may all be starting to sound like the X-Files, but perhaps ‘the truth is out there’.

The agenda is to destabilise financial and government systems, causing chaos and destruction; to use science to establish genetically engineered retroviruses, contagion, and plague agents; to use the media to popularise and desensitise us to such concepts as vampires (there are no good vampires, whatever the creators of the Twilight saga would have us believe), werewolves, zombies and aliens.

We need to be aware of such an agenda, but not fearful of it. The purpose of all this is to rob man of his inheritance. The devil comes to rob, kill and destroy (John 10:10) but Jesus came to destroy the devil’s works.

Demonstrate the power of Jesus

God’s desire is to have the earth full of the sons of God. We are looking to an end time harvest of souls in which people will be rescued, saved, delivered, transformed, healed and brought into wholeness before Jesus’ return. We have a lot of work to do, and we must demonstrate the power that Jesus worked in. When the world is falling apart, we need to have the answers (both natural and spiritual) that people will be looking for.

God wants ‘the church in all her glory’ (Eph 5:27) to represent and manifest His glory, His manifest presence flowing through us. For that to happen, transformation needs to take place in us on each level: separation of soul and spirit; dividing the thoughts and intentions of the heart; bone and marrow (Heb 4:12). We need to be genetically pure: spirit, soul and body.

In coming posts we will look at how we can apply the power of communion, the blood of Jesus and the DNA of God, so that nothing remains in our genetic make-up for the enemy to use to rob us of our inheritance.

177. Heaven Around Us, Heaven Within Us

Mike Parsons
with Jeremy Westcott

And He was transfigured before them; and His face shone like the sun, and His garments became as white as light (Matt 17:2).

The Greek word ‘metamorphoó’ (the same root from which we get the English word ‘metamorphosis’), is translated ‘transfigured’ in this passage and ‘transformed’ in Romans 12:2 (‘but be transformed by the renewing of your mind’).

When Jesus was on the mount of transfiguration he was representing mankind. He was showing people what it would be like if they were fully able to reflect God’s glory through their lives. They would literally be shining. As we are fully transformed into the image of Jesus and mature into becoming joint heirs with Him, we will begin to shine as He did when He was transfigured/transformed. Something of God’s glory will be seen in us.

Our inheritance

And as joint heirs, God wants us to have our inheritance, which is to do the works of Jesus. Those include all kinds of miracles, healings, and control over nature. It is not surprising that the enemy wants to rob us of our inheritance; but Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil.

Jesus said we were to do greater works than He did. He went back into the realms of heaven to open up heaven for us so that we would do even greater works of authority and power and occupy greater spiritual authority.

Our inheritance is also to be whole, complete, without blame, reproach, sin, transgression or iniquity. The Hebrew word means ‘nothing missing, nothing broken’: nothing missing of what God intends us to have; nothing of His provision that we cannot use because it is broken or damaged; so that so that we are in that place of peace.

He intends us to have (and demonstrate) a life of wholeness and prosperity, excelling to the highest level – spirit, soul and body.

And may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through [separate you from profane things, make you pure and wholly consecrated to God]; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved sound and complete [and found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) (1 Thess 5:23 AMP)

As I understand it, that means Jesus will not come back until that is done!

Staking a claim

Do you remember how in those gold rush movies, the prospectors would stake a claim by driving a stake into the ground? Strongholds give legal rights to the enemy who has staked a claim on your inheritance. Any fractures in our souls have given an opportunity for the enemy to plant a stake, giving him a legal right to stop God’s inheritance in us being fulfilled.

The enemy is a legalist, and will take advantage of laws such as the law of sowing and reaping and the law of sin and death, unless we give him no ground. We have to deal with anything in us that has given him legal rights. We do that through repentance, applying the finished work of the cross and the blood of Jesus to all sin, transgression and iniquity found in us.

The kingdom of God is within you

The Kingdom of God is a heavenly realm (around us) that is also mirrored within us.

For behold, the kingdom of God is within you [in your hearts] and among you [surrounding you] (Luke 17:21 AMP).

Both within us and around us in the spiritual realm, there is conflict, a battle for control. Whose kingdom rules? We are on the offensive in the spiritual warfare which takes place (both in us and in the kingdom of heaven). Wherever the enemy has established his influence, we contend for God’s kingdom to be manifested on earth as it is in heaven. He does not want God’s kingdom manifested, but his own. His intention was always to rule, and when he realised that God’s plan was for mankind to rule over creation, he rebelled. Now he seeks to manipulate circumstances and do whatever he can to prevent us from fulfilling our God-given destiny.

Our struggle is with the things that go on in the heavenly places, not against people (see Eph 6:12). What we struggle with must be dealt with in heavenly places, not in this physical realm. But we are not alone, and angels are in that spiritual realm to operate on our behalf.

Blocking the gates

We have gates in our spirit, soul and body to allow God’s flow through us and around us. They can be blocked if we allow enemy strongholds to persist, hindering the manifestation of God’s glory. Strongholds empower spiritual forces (in the kingdom of God realm in the heavens) to rob us of spiritual authority.

If we do not realise that we are surrounded by a spiritual realm, we can wander around thinking that this is just what life is like. But because the kingdom is within us, whatever happens on the inside of us is reflected in what goes on in the realms of heaven and whatever goes on in the realms of heaven is reflected in our lives. If we continue to allow strongholds to continue functioning, we are also allowing them to affect the atmosphere around us.

Deny the enemy access

The history of our past generations is stored within us and can affect us today. Our genetic record is 23 + 23 chromosomes. God wants to deny the enemy access by re-writing the record that allows him to occupy strongholds in our souls, and in our hearts.

Put me on trial

Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any wicked way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way (Psalm 139:23-4).

In a trial, witnesses are called and evidence is presented. Generational and genetic iniquity may be the witnesses, and our present struggles the evidence of the areas we need to deal with. We can ask God to show us all this.

For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ (2 Cor 10:4-5).

We have authority and power, and weapons that can destroy those strongholds.
