I will give thanks to you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful. My soul knows that very well. Psalm 139:14
“Do you have Royalty in your blood?”
Recently I listened to one of the most convincing sales pitches regarding the ability to determine an individual’s ancestry or lineage-regarding who is in your bloodline. And for only $$$, someone has developed the ability to analyze your blood and match it to varied nationalities from hundreds of years ago?
Let’s analyze this popular phenomenon from a logical, rational, and spiritual perspective.
DNA testing was originally made available to the public for paternity testing. Remember the “Maury” show, “You are not the baby’s father.” On the serious side, DNA paternity testing is legal and admissable in court-related cases, which is utilized frequently in our society.
There are many believers who are involved in the game of seeking to know if their bloodline contains royalty. According to the Bible, Jesus Christ is the Alpha and Omega, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords; so if we are His children then we are royalty.
What is really difficult to process is that when the DNA results are received, what practical purpose does it serve? Is it a gimmick to boost one’s self-esteem or to validate one’s existence?
There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you all are one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:28 NLT
God, our loving Creator formed Adam in His image and breathed the breath of life into him, and then He took a rib from Adam and created Eve, his wife; consequently, all human beings are equal in the sight of God. Man-made titles are meaningless to God; we are humanity with only one dividing factor: Believer or Unbeliever, Righteous or Evildoer, and Holy or Unholy.
Believer Alert: We are fearfully and wonderfully made! From a biblical perspective, all were created equal; whether we are rich, poor, of varied nationalities, races, or ethnicities, we have one Father, our Creator, God and we have been washed and cleansed by the blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ.
God is the Creator and Master Designer of our human bodies including our DNA. We are perfect in our outward appearance as well as our anatomy and physiology.
It is impossible for humanity to rise above or attempt to turn falsehood into truth. We cannot build a Tower of Babel (read Genesis 11:1-9) by challenging God and masterminding schemes that serve no real purpose in our lives.
For validation of who you belong to and where you are from: Read and study the Word of God–the Holy Bible, and the next time you hear an advertisement or conversation regarding DNA testing for royalty, start smiling and praising God because your DNA is from the King of Kings.
We serve a loving God who wants us to know that He is our Creator; He is our all and all; and there is none like Him.
Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered…Luke 12:7 NIV
“I am a Child of the KING!”
Prayer for today: Dear God, Thank you for your love and kindness. Thank you for creating me in your image. I belong to you and you are worthy of my praise. I know that DNA testing can never determine my worth or my value. From this day forward, I dedicate my life to you, the one and only true King. Thank you for hearing my prayer that I ask in the worthy name of your Son, Jesus. Amen.
