To be upfront, and I’ve said this before but I want to say again, that I have no desire to tell anyone what they should do regarding getting the Co vid Vac cine. That decision is a judgment call for each person to do their own research, listen to God, and make their own decisions. This website is about my personal opinions for myself only regarding health issues and spiritual things. It’s not to sit in judgment of every other person’s actions or beliefs. That’s exhausting, offensive, and unproductive.
I’ve previously shared some of the physical reasons why I personally would not wish to take the V. But there’s very real and even more important spiritual reasons that are also present in the decision. Things I feel the Lord has shown me.
As some of you know, I’ve been slowly working my way through school to become an aromatherapist. In the Spring of 2021 around the time they were really beginning to promote the V., I was going through the anatomy portion of the course. I was studying about cells, DNA and genetic coding, and came across a couple sections about mRNA.
From “Pearson’s Human Anatomy, seventh edition” by Marieb, Wilhelm, and Mallatt. Copyright 2013. p50:
“During a cell’s nondividing phase, when it is performing its normal activities, the chromatin is in either its extended or condensed form. The tightly coiled DNA of condensed chromatin is inactive. The extended chromatin is the active region of the DNA, directing the synthetic activities of the cell. Specifically, extended chromatin is the site where DNA’s genetic code is copied onto messenger RNA molecules in a process called transcription. [emphasis mine]
So, mRNA has directly to do with DNA and genetic coding.
From “Hole’s Human Anatomy & Physiology, eleventh edition” by Shier, Butler, and Lewis. Copyright 2007. p129:
“The first step in the delivery of information from the nucleus to the cytoplasm is the synthesis of a type of RNA called messenger RNA (mRNA). In mRNA synthesis, RNA nucleotides form complementary base pairs with one of the two polynucleotide chains from a section of DNA that encodes a particular protein…. An enzyme called RNA polymerase determines the correct DNA strand and the right direction for RNA synthesis. In human cells, the “sentence” always begins with the mRNA base sequence AUG.” [emphasis mine]
So, an mRNA vac cine would directly effect the ‘messages’ our cells receive which the mRNA sends to our DNA and genetic code.
Those “messages” would include things like what our personality is, whether we’re shy or outgoing, our hair color, our facial features, how our internal organs function, our emotions, our intellect, etc. Essentially they effect every aspect of what we are as human beings, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.
The ETHICAL and MORAL debate of manipulating of genetics, genetic modifying, genetic screening, genetic cloning, genetic editing, etc. has been going on for years and years and is nothing new.
In my own estimation of that particular debate, genetics is our Creator’s realm and not man’s place to alter or effect in any way at all. GOD determines what those “messages” are and who we are, what we will look like, our physical health, our mental/emotional health, and what our personality is, etc.
God is our Maker. In Genesis 1 he says, “Let us make man in our image.”
In Isaiah 44:24 he says, “Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, and the one who formed you from the womb, ‘I, the LORD, am the maker of all things…’”
This knitting together (i.e., genetic encoding) in us as human beings is singularly God’s domain and God’s work and God’s doing.
“For You formed me in my inward parts; you wove me in my mother’s womb.” Psalm 139:13
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you…” Jeremiah 1:5
“Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning…” Matthew 19:4
“...In God who created all things…” Ephesians 3:9
“For by him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him.” Colossians 1:16
“Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they existed, and were created.” Revelation 4:11.
I do believe there is a place to study genetics, and to understand it’s workings and even to use DNA testing to determine identity. However, to create an experimental medicine that actually genetically “instructs human cells” (again, God’s realm) to make proteins so that our bodies can reject them and supposedly build an immune response (as per CDC website info) seems the height of human arrogance.
Indeed, it seems to be human experimentation at the cellular level. And if so, it’s a crime against humanity. And more than that, it is a crime against the Creator of humanity. It’s akin to the tower of Babel in Gen 11:3-9; Man’s arrogance to elevate himself and reach into God’s dominion and establish himself there as more than God.
I realize this all sounds very dramatic. Again, I’m not trying to tell anyone else what they should do. For me, beyond just my physical qualms about it, not taking a genetically modifying vac cine is about fearing God. I do realize there are social and political consequences for that which could be pretty serious, considering all the gov’t mandating happening and personal rights being removed. Yet, I believe it when the Psalmist says, “I have not seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread”. All of Psalm 37 really.
I believe God is faithful whatever may happen. I believe he has allowed all of this to come upon the earth for a purpose. His eyes are scanning to and fro for a people who will fear him and trust him and give their life to him wholeheartedly.
So the question begs, ‘what if you or someone you love already took the V., are you/they not fearing God?’ I can’t make that judgment since I can’t see hearts. I do know though that God will help anyone who turns to him. God is not a respecter of persons, vaxxed or not, and it’s never too late.
