Family Stress Affects Generations

DNA and stressThe scientific field of epigenetics reveals the relationship between parental lifestyle and stresses along with their effects on children and grandchildren. Previous scientific thought was that family genetic inheritance involved DNA through the genes only. Scientists now have direct evidence that other factors allow genes to be switched on and off in response to environment. The consequences of these changes can easily affect generations in the future. This goes beyond simple environmental changes, but involves behavoral and spiritual changes, involving spiritual law. Even the comments of Moses regarding the words of YHWH (the Elohim [‘God’] of the Bible) relay this idea. Naturally, the majority of scientists want little or nothing to do with the Bible. They believe that they are blazing their own trail of significance and power in the world!

Illnesses and genetic disease have been discovered to be transmitted through the circumstances of the mother and the father, both together and separately at the time of conception. This continues after conception and into adulthood through environment (including behavior and spiritual attitudes).

Researchers at Edinburgh University studied the ‘transgenerational effects,’ learning “that exposure to stress hormones caused raised anxiety in their offspring, and in generations thereafter.” (“Breaking the Hold of Stress“; “Health & Bible Truth“; “Health & Bible Truth“)

Professor Rachel Yehuda, of Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York studied American women who were pregnant during the twin towers terror attack of September 11, 2001. She found that the women who were in the last trimester of pregnancy at the time of the attack had lower levels of the hormone cortisol, which assists in coping with stress. Their children were born with lower levels of cortisol, which indicates that stressful events in the last trimester of the mother’s pregnancy can change a child’s ability to cope with stress. This preliminary test indicates agreement that environmental changes during pregnancy can pass on genetic alterations to children and succeeding generations.

Studies in Sweden have cited demonstrable proof that the life expectancy and quality of life in grandchildren was directly affected by the diet of the grandparents. For example, childhood diabetes was often linked with a grandfather living during a period of reduced food supply or famine. This and other findings indicate that epigenetic inheritance is common in humans.

The Bible outlines spiritual laws that science doesn’t fully realize that impact humanity in the present and the future, firmly tied to the past. These can be overcome in a variety of ways through spiritual healing. Details of this knowledge, especially in human behavior, is what our book, “Two Kingdoms; Genetics of Spiritual Warfare” deals with.

“For YHWH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, RNKJV
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your glory. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. Amen.
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
