Mutation is simply any change or alteration in the DNA sequence of any living thing. Each DNA strand of any living thing is made up of genes that code for special characteristics in individuals.
The expression of this genes come in the form of proteins (polypeptides). Pour exemplum, I have characteristic brown eyes because I have a gene in my DNA that codes for the protein responsible for expressing itself as the brown eyes you can see.
Hence gene expression follows a central dogma that DNA makes mRNA which in turn makes protein (please leave out the concept of mRNA, I don’t want you confused). This basic principle is what we call the Central Dogma of molecular biology, which we employ and apply in Genetic Engineering.( This is a core field of Microbiology, so chill and trust me to walk you through a process of understanding a supernatural truth using natural principles- that is my area of discipline okay?)
Back to where we started from:
Mutation is any change or alteration in the DNA sequence of any living thing. Nevertheless, natural things are not very strong to explain supernatural things because our knowledge is always not complete, we know in part.
In genetic engineering, we have an area called Recombinant DNA technology (chill it is as simple as yawning okay?). Recombinant DNA technology involves splicing (cutting) and sticking a gene (segment of a DNA strand) into another totally different DNA strand. This is done so that the new DNA strand containing the foreign but desired gene would begin to express itself as a form of protein responsible for something like hazelnut colored hair, tallness, shortness, a shade of skin fairness etc. in technical terms (please chill), the most common example is the production of insulin by the bacteria Escherichia coli. Insulin is a hormone (protein) produced by humans but this DNA technology enables the genetic engineer to cut out (splice) the gene responsible for the hormone (protein), and stick it into the DNA of the E.coli. The essence of involving the bacteria in the whole engineering process is because E.coli can really produce (express the gene) in a large quantity so that they can be sold to those who need it but are insulin deficient. In this example the E. coli is the mutant and not the sick people.
Now let’s fix this whole jargon into something meaningful.
The Father wanted genetic expression (fruit bearing) that belonged to His nature, so He put His Gene (His Spirit) into our DNA (our human spirits) so that we may become His mutants, SOMETHING NEW (as mutant Niel would say). We are mutants by faith in His son. He carried out this DNA technology so that mutants can express His Gene naturally. I call it the mutant expression of the Spirit, the Gene of the Most High.
You can therefore now say that the fruit (expression) of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control….Galatians 5: 22
This expression or fruit is what you may call the protein coded for, by the Gene of God, i.e. the Spirit of God in the mutated human spirit.
Mutants got mutated by just believing and receiving the finished work. The ultimate idea behind this ultimate mutation story or the ultimate genetic engineering is because God wanted to create people (mutants) who would just be Jesus. He wanted to do a form of cloning.
“For those God foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many bothers”- Romans 8: 29(NIV)
Mutants are God’s dream come true- having family members with the family Gene. Mutant Paul also went further to tell the mutants in Ephesus in Ephesian 4: 24 that they were created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Jesus was the picture behind the mutation story. He is the first born among many mutants. Mutants are Gods and men all in one- this is a miracle!
Mutants are perfect Jesus clones expressing the Gene in many and diverse dimensions of the Spirit. Glory! Mutants belong to a family where Jesus is the first born, and we have the same daddy as Jesus. We are just as Jesus is. Mutants are the members of God’s family because He that makes holy and they that are made holy are of the same family. Mutants cannot sin because the gene that codes for sin has been removed and replaced with the Spirit Gene. Hebrew 8: 10-12
By the way, the Gene makes holy. Mutants are holy. Mutants are righteous, mutants dominate, mutants manifest. The ultimate mutation by the ultimate genetic engineer is the ultimate miracle! This is the ultimate mutation story.
