It is important to realize that the heretical Dominionist doctrine is now embraced by an increasing number of apostate ministries and that it is straight from the occult. From the very seeds of civilization, Gnostic sects and keepers of secret esoteric doctrines have spoken of humankind evolving into a God-like being. The Kabbalah calls this being the Adam Kadmon, or “God-Man”. The name “Adam” refers to the entire human race and the term “Kadmon” refers to completion. Thus, Adam Kadmon speaks of a return to our beginning, with all the knowledge, wisdom, and enlightenment of the first “Adam”. Those who embrace this doctrine firmly believe we can return to the Garden of Eden by becoming the Adam Kadmon and creating Heaven on Earth.
So, how exactly does one become the “Adam Kadmon?” Well, according to those who embrace this esoteric doctrine it is through the activation of the divine nature. Accordingly, when enough of mankind has activated their divine nature, we will evolve and become the “Corporate Christ”. According to the New Apostolic Reformation and other hard-core dominionists, D.N.A. stands for the Divine Nature Activated and this phrase is being tossed around the Christian community like rice at a wedding. Doing a quick online search using the term, “DNA activation” will return a myriad of occult websites for your perusal.
Adherents of these beliefs claim that the inactivated part of our DNA is preventing us from becoming gods. They claim we have the divinity and enlightenment of the Adam Kadmon encoded into our DNA. As more and more of us activate this Divine Nature, we will corporately become the Adam Kadmon, return to the Garden, and usher in heaven on earth. Is this starting to sound familiar? It should. It is precisely what the false apostles of the prophets of the New Apostolic Reformation teach. Interestingly enough, it is also what the New Age teaches. The Dominionists may cloak their beliefs in more palatable terms to appeal to the undiscerning. However, it is rather like hiding cyanide in a cupcake. It may taste better, but it will still kill you.
Below is a quote from John Lewis from Age to Age Ministries, which explains the use of the term DNA. Interestingly enough, Age to Age Ministries, which I had never heard of prior to my research, claims to be a Christian ministry.
The 97% of your DNA that’s not activated is GOD waiting to be activated in man. You have the information and intelligence of Adam the son of God encoded in your DNA. Access and activation to this information will cause you to live as Adam the God-man in the Garden of your Be-in.
When Divine Nature is completely activated within man, he will be able to naturally transport himself from place to place without the aid of modern transportation. Elijah and Philip in the Bible were only examples of what will become the norm. Jesus said,
As the 97% of unused DNA is activated the 2-Strand double helix becomes a 12 –Strand DNA. Since science doesn’t understand the 97%, they don’t understand the purpose for the 5 extra pairs of DNA strands (shadow strands).
The 12-Strand DNA represents man coming into his Divineness. Mankind created in the image and likeness of God can be nothing less that God. Every seed must bring forth after its kind. Man is the visible expression of the invisible God. This has been the Creators plan from the beginning to multiply Himself to the point of filling all things.
Organized religion spends time shouting and screaming at their followers convincing them that they are not Gods. It seems to be their mission to deceive their followers into believing they are only human that can not think for themselves. The powers that be realize that if their followers would begin to activate the Divine Nature that would be the end of Organized Religion as we see it today.” www.atam.org/DNA.html”
Now let’s look at some quotes from various leaders of the New Apostolic Reformation.
“We participated in a leadership meeting on Monday prior to the conference where Dutch released the vision of the Apostolic Alliance. It was a powerful three days of God imparting His DNA into this apostolic movement for national transformation.” April 2008 e-newsletter by Prayer Focus Ministries describing the Apostolic Alliance gathering in Colorado Springs,Colorado
In an apostolic network the person in charge of maintaining the DNA of the network is the lead apostle, who consults with those he or she chooses, and no one else.” [“Goodbye, Theologians,” C. Peter Wagner, September 06, 2006, “Guest Commentary,” Ministry Today]
God is trying to get us to a place of really understanding who we are. The church is having an identity crisis. When the people of God begin to realize that the purpose of Jesus on the earth was to birth a new breed of people who would carry the DNA of God within them and bring heaven to earth daily, we will begin to live with purpose. When the people of God begin to realize their identity as the very offspring of God and that as He is right now, so are we in this world, the church will begin to shake the nations with the power of God.” [“The New Breed – Part 2,” Ryan Wyatt, Abiding Glory Ministries, Open Heaven]
Insight is the God-given ability for you to know your Identity, your Kingdom ID; your spiritual DNA; your uniqueness in the earth and in the Body of Christ. There is no one like you. You are predestined for Greatness. Chuck Pierce School of the Spirit,Faith Summit Church, Monday, March 24, 2008
The Living Word or Bread of life once again desires to be made flesh through a body of people joined with Him in a holy consummation. As we live not by natural bread alone, but by the living Word proceeding from the mouth of God, the bread of abundant life, even so the hidden truth of godliness will become part of our spiritual DNA.”
[“Shepherd’s Rod, Part 1: Blood and Fire,” Paul Keith Davis and Bob Jones: Oct 11, 2004]
I have called the best of every blood line in earth unto this generation…I have elected to bring them forth in this generation…the Elect Generation…even the bloodline of Paul…of David…of Peter, James and John…They will even be superior to them in heart, stature and love for me’…Your children will possess the spirit without measure…They will move into things of the supernatural that no one has ever moved in before…coming into the Divine Nature of Jesus Christ…a Church that has reached the full maturity of the God-Man! This generation…is going to see the beginning of this World-wide New Order.” Vineyard Prophecy Conference, 1989
These occultic doctrines are not the new revelations as today’s modern false Apostles and Prophets would have you believe. We are not Gods, nor will we ever become Gods through partaking of Lucifer’s secret doctrines and Gnostic illumination. It was this exact same lie whispered by the serpent in the Garden long ago which led to the downfall of man and our need for redemption through Jesus Christ in the first place! Is it not fitting that this lie is now the central theme of the last day’s apostate church?
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die (this was in direct opposition of what God said): For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, (the serpent promises higher gnosis or wisdom) and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. Genesis 4-5
Peter warned Christians of destructive and heretical doctrines being brought into the church in II Peter 2:1-3.
“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.”
In the Greek, the word “Privily” means to bring in alongside. Peter is warning the church that these false teachers will bring in false doctrine alongside the true doctrine and by so doing will bring the Truth into disrepute! The Truth to them will act as bait to ensnare the undiscerning. Interestingly enough, the words “make merchandise of you” mean to “traffic” or “trade.” Peter is literally warning the church that these false prophets will use people for money. The word “feigned” in the Greek means to be molded like clay. Their “feigned words” will be molded in such a way as to elicit the greatest response from their audience and manipulate them for their gain.
We are living in a day when a large portion of the church has spiraled into apostasy. To avoid deception, we must love and cling to the Truth so passionately that it motivates us to pursue it all costs. We must diligently and prayerfully make studying scripture a priority. We must be concerned enough about what we ingest spiritually to verify it all against His Word. It does not matter who the teaching comes from, or how “right” it might sound, it must be examined in the light of scripture. Dictatorship and tyranny in the natural realm is always preceded by an attempt to disarm the people. So it is with the Spiritual. As Christians, our weapon is the Word of God. For many years, Satan has been disarming us by slowly removing the Word of God from our every-day lives. Where he has been unsuccessful in removing it completely, he has misquoted, twisted and perverted it. By so doing, he has brought the Truth into disrepute. Without the Bible, we are defenseless against the wiles of the enemy and can quickly turn aside to the fables being peddled as truth by the false Apostles and Prophets of today’s apostate church.
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” II Timothy 4:3-4
