“And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: 27 they were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.” Luke 17:26-27
National Geographic reports that international team of scientists led by the Salk Institute announced the world’s first publicly revealed human-animal hybrid, as reported to science journal Cell. Mixing the cells of two different species, an abomination of this kind is known as a chimera. Scientists state that the goal is to inject human organ cells into a pig embryo to grow new organs, something medical advocates have hoped to see for years.
While this may stem the tide of patients dying while waiting for desperate organ transplants, it raises alarming questions now that such a long-held ethical line has been erased in the genetics community. With human cells able to be carried in the body of the pig embryo, what will stop them from forcing compatibility in other ways? It is well known that at least seven different kinds of animals have been injected with fluorescent protein found in jellyfish, which then made the animals glow in the dark.
The implications are clear: what has been done in the shadows will be brought into the light (Luke 12:2-3). Soon we will find the truth about exactly how far scientists have come in creating hybrids of all kinds, even the technological hybridism that seems to be awaiting humans in the near future. Will we see a true return of the Nephilim? Or will the Nephilim of old be a judgement on those who would tamper with God’s order of life, as Joel 2 suggests?
’35 Therefore keep watch, because you do not know when the master of the house will return—whether in the evening, at midnight, when the rooster crows, or in the morning. 36 Otherwise, he may arrive without notice and find you sleeping. 37 And what I say to you, I say to everyone: Keep watch!”’ Mark 13:35-37
