Today’s devotion is from Genesis 1:27, 2:7
‘So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.’
The Wycliffe Bible says, ‘Therefore the Lord God formed man of the slime of [the] earth, and breathed into his face the breathing of life; and man was made into a living soul. (And so the Lord God formed man out of the slime of the earth, and breathed into his face the breathe of life; and then the man was made into a living soul.)’ The word ‘dust’ is better translated from the Hebrew as it is here as ‘slime’ or ‘clay’. (Slime of clay draws even more DNA out when touched than dust.)
DNA is transferred when we touch something porous and DNA is also transferred through our breath…
As Jesus put His hands into the slime of the earth, His very own DNA was drawn out and intentionally imparted into the slime or clay… when He breathed into it, He intentionally imparted more of Himself. New research shows that our breath can be used as an unique identifying feature, thanks to the varying assemblies of internal microbes that inhabit our bodies. To discover these unique “breathprints,” ‘Science NOW’ reports, scientists recruited volunteers to blow into a mass spectrometer, a machine often used in chemistry to separate chemical components of different samples. Within seconds, the mass spectrometer spit out results for each person. These breathprints vary between individuals and the researchers found a unique core signature, to the point that it could be used to identify the individual participants in the study.
God spoke everything else that He created into being, but He FORMED man with His own hands and then breathed His own breath into Him. Later, He took woman out of the man that He created. So God did not only create man in His own likeness, He imparted His very own DNA into us. No other created being has God’s DNA and no other created being is made in the image and likeness of God. We are His children and are made by God and from God very own DNA.
This is why the devil hates us so much. As wonderful and as beautiful and as gifted that he was made, the devil and every other created species is not of the God species… only mankind is part of the God species. Now, having said that, we are not God and we are not gods… we are the children of God. I had to say that because there are a lot of strange doctrines out there.
As children of God, when we receive Jesus as Lord and Savior we are raised into a position of great authority and are assigned to rule and reign with Christ and in the power of His Name as joint heirs of Christ and as children of the Most High God.
You have God’s DNA and in Christ, you have His anointing, His authority and His supernatural miracle working power. You have been assigned to rule on earth in Jesus Name and to destroy the work of the devil wherever you see it. Rise up today, walk as a child of the Most High and have dominion over sickness, poverty, and every work of the devil, in Jesus Name!
