Epigenetics- God's Design

Jerry Travers


In this class we will be looking into what epigenetics is, how it works, how we have dominion over it to subdue creation (Genesis 1:28), how it explains scripture, how it shows the need of adherence to the 8 laws of health, how it corrects scientific “understanding,” and what it implies for God's people.

Lord. You're the creator. And the Zeiner of all that exists here. And we come today to learn about your design. Lord I asked to to give each one. Understanding in Jesus name. I pray. Amen. How many have heard about epigenetics a couple have heard about it. Oh OK. Well. Epigenetics is the. The study of the design of the gene. Dr saying Lee was giving a report at the Wisconsin can't meeting in two thousand at the time of the Human Genome Project. And he made the statement that ninety five percent of the gene. Material was junk. Genes. Now that's an evolution. Concept you know that there's a junk God there. God made no junk. But shortly after that they came to realize that over fifty percent of the genetic material was switches. Switches for turning on and off different expressions of the gene and now they thought that when they did the Human Genome Project that there would be about one hundred thousand different genes. There only turned out to be about twenty two thousand some odd. Genes. The reason there were so few is because many of the genetic expressions that we have worse switches on the gene. Now if you had high school. Genetics you were taught about the phenotype and the gene a type the gene genus IP is the gene you have the phenotype is what really shows up. For instance different colors of eyes of Mendel. The monk who did the first that we know of in the western world genetic research. Had. Peas that flowered white or pink or red. So this different genetic expression on the gene was relative to switches that were turned on and off. Now. We're going to be looking at the switches and. What the finger is that turns them on and off yet. Know the phenotype is just the name that was coined to describe these different genetic expressions. Coming from one gene. So you have this one Jane. And it can express itself many different ways it. OK. Repeat the question OK. OK now to start off and getting ourselves an understanding of this. On the ark. There were two dogs like creatures. Just to. OK today we have many kinds of wolves. I assume many different types of coyotes. Many different types of Fox worldwide. We have dingos in Australia we have jackals in Africa. All of these animals have the exact same genes. One thing that once they went from the human studying every single gene in the human body they started studying every single gene and all the different animals. And they found out some very interesting things. For instance there's an extinct animal with a half horse half a zebra. The last one was killed off about one hundred so years ago but had a high hanging in the museum so a day did a D.N.A. test on it and it was a zebra. So they're breeding zebra. For this extinct animal and they probably maybe have it by now it does not take long to find these genetic expressions turn the switch it back on and and have them. Again. And so all the cat like animals on Earth. They all to have the same set of genes. But look how different they look. From the little kitty cat. To the Siberian tiger. They look so vastly different. Those are different genetic expressions. Turned on these are. This is what these epigenetics which is epigenetics is epi means on top of and genetics genes are one top of the gene or switches that turn on different expression. Yet. They all have the same genes. One may be too small the other two big. Yes. There. Yes but that's not genes that's just the stacking up of the genes they stack them up and different ways that as a result of the switches that were turned on same. Chromosomes are just. Colm so of genes. And how they clump up. Varies in the different animals. But the thing we're concerned with is the switches. Because only two cats came off the are. How did they begin to change. They change because God designed switches on the genes for turning on different expressions. The cat. That's in a wet area. The cat. That's in a desert area. Different chains are switched on. So that the cat in the desert area. Can survive in that climate with a cat in the weather area. Can survive the next climate or to conserve I have of very far north like the Siberian tiger. As opposed to the Jaguar. And the Amazon. Different genetic switches are turned on for adaptations. This was Darwin's work. Adaptations of species. To the different climates. They had that Darwin. Recognize something. When he saw that he was recognizing that there is something. In these animals that allows them to switch and change their structure their be. Havior. According to the environmental influences around them. Yet. Well let's just use the biblical terms. The question was that they change. Does a cat changed to a fig tree. You know. No it doesn't change the figure a cat stays a cat. Well. We have to use. Biblical terms you're using the term species. The Bible says. Kind. And that's a term that we should use is kinds. To dog time came off the are to cat kind came off the are. I don't know where you draw the line. Whether it's genes a man made term. Recently not a biblical term. Or was it families where there's no longer. It's where you switch over to a different kind. Those are human terms and. You know that the kinds fall in that category of families and genus. If you're familiar with taxonomic nomenclature the naming of things from the family to the gene to the very species. But species. That word species. They change. For instance here. There's an article that came out this march. In the Adventist world. And it was in titled When species. Change. And so there was a comment that came in the June issue of the Adventists world. And the comment. Went like this. Thanks for James. Gifts and article. When species change march to fifteen. How interesting and refreshing to see a church employed scientists grapple with the scientific issues seemingly at odds with the way the church has traditionally interpreted scripture. To this non-scientists However the explanation of animal adaptation and change happening slowly over long periods of time. Is more reasonable. This is what this event this road is more reasonable than the idea that Satan with evil intent. Miraculously ordered changes in many animals. Anatomy and function. That would turn them into animals of prey. So we have this problem and Adventism today. That many people are beginning to think things evolve or change over long periods of time. They have changed they have the. I should say. Evolved because you all know what that word means. But personally I like to look at it this way. There was what God created in Eden. And we read in spiritual gifts fall umed three that. When God put the animals on the ark. He destroyed. All the amount committed once all the junk that men came up with. And we started with a clean slate. And then from that they began to devolve. I use the term devolved to change. Away as this. As the earth is damaged animals. Adapt. I call that devolution. I call. Evolution. When we repair the damage and they start to evolve. Upward. Because that's how evolution is opposing the youth and evolution. Upward. The evolve. Upward back to the Denecke conditions. Now. The reason I'm presenting this is because we have a responsibility to evolve things back up to the genetic conditions that were in Eden and. I called James gets in here and talk with him about that article. And I cited to him. Three cases as well as what I mentioned to you about cats and dogs and these are the three cations that I cited I said. When cockroaches. Move into a lava tube. That has no light. These lava tubes are very long and totally dark. Within three generations. They stop producing eyes the genetics wishes. Switches for eye production are turned off. And they stop producing out. How long does it take for that evolution. How long does it take for a cockroach. To reproduce. Two weeks a month. Let's say three months later. The switches are turned off and they're not producing on. Evolution is rapid. And so I cited. Another case where in Russia there were breeding foxes for for coats and foxes can be very scrappy. And so they wanted to calm them down so they just selected for one trait. Dust Filippi nice and calm. Within fifteen years. The foxes pointed ears. Flopped over like a dog. Their coat. Colors change to the patterns of dogs and their hair. Changed to like dogs. So within fifteen years they were changing him into dogs. Just through the selection. I also mentioned that. When I was in a friend stopped by he was a pastor on his way from Australia to the mainland and. He spent the Sabbath with us. And he was it had been an entomologist before he became a pastor. And so he was out with his butterfly net. And he was catching common sulfur and alfalfa butterflies. Now if you know anything about collecting butterflies that skin the garden. So I finally said to him What do you collecting them for. He said they just came over fifteen years ago. And the duffle bags of the fellows coming through Hawaii to Vietnam. And they've only been here for fifteen years and in fifteen years they have evolved a million years. And I'd like to present this to the board event Amala just because he used to be on the board event them ologists of California. Just to show them. Think. So I taught soul these things. To James gifts and he said you know. I've been collecting examples of rapid evolution for a long time he said. I said you know are people named this because they're beginning to think that long periods of time are necessary for changes. And he said. I need to put this article out there sooner than later. So pray that he does because this will stem the tide of all these Adventists thinking. There is no alternative but the talk long periods of time for these changes to occur. Yeah. I I don't. I don't come any the way. I don't. I haven't given it a thought. Because when I see how epigenetic works and I'm going to tell you you'll see why I haven't given it a thought. OK So the question then is. If these switches exist. And the environmental influences. Turn them on and off. What are all the environmental influences that turn them on and off. And what effect do we have upon an Veyron mental conditions. We were familiar with the term environmental impact. Man's environmental impact on the earth has been pretty rough. Well that alters the. What the switches on the genes are going to give us. Now. This is what I want to discuss with us is. Since God gave us the ability to have an impact on the environment. That will change the switches. We then have the option of leaving all creation back to the Dennett conditions or. If we pay no attention to what we're doing live the lifestyles of Babylon and through our damaging of the earth. As we buy their timber. As we buy their food products. As we buy their chemical xfer our household needs. We're on the road to changing them farther and farther away from eat until until we reach extinction. And so we want to realise and to know that we have this responsibility. Genesis one twenty eight tells us that we were given dominion of the earth to minion of the earth. To have all things in it all creatures in it. Subject. In subjection to us. They are in subjection to our environmental impact that alters their genetic behaviour. So this person was wondering how this animal that was peaceful Isaiah eleven six through nine all these peaceful animals. How did they get changed to parasites predators. Violent. Lee competing with one another for mates for habitat for food. How did these switches for thorns and thistles and. Pairs or we'd get turned on and so we see there in Genesis one twenty eight. That we were given dominion over all creation. I would just like to on that theme. Show you the chapter which I call the epigenetic chapter. Romans eight. Because in Romans eight. Is where we hear about the predestination. That has been a in question for a long period of time for centuries. How are we preach destined. The predestination that we have is these switches. OK now. That was realize first from some longevity studies that were done and over keylock Sweden. And in over Calix Queen it's an isolated community. Probably up farther north and. They kept records of their birth. Their deaths. The disease they died of and and portly how the crops came that year. If the crops were poor. They didn't have too much to eat. And that's the way they had to live because there was no way for them to communicate and get crop. To substitute for what they didn't get so it was a lean year it was Elaine year but was I very productive year it was very productive so that is a lot of grain or was just not too much grains just enough to get by. Over Calix Sweden. Over C.L. he acts. I think that's how you spell Calix. No Sweden Wieden is what I remember. And so when they did this study they found out that. To the third and fourth generation. When it was a lean year. The people were healthy and to the third and fourth generation. When there was a year of abundance. The people develop predisposition to heart disease and other sicknesses. And this was genetic. This was a genetic turning on of genes. According to the diet that they were aiding and it works like this. I asked I was talking about this and in the Prairie State. And I said What do you do when you have an excess of grain and if on the farmer says. Defeated to the animals. And so they all began to eat the fatted calf. It had this excess grain they fed it to the animals fatten them up and they just ate that fatted calf. Through that season. Well during that season. All the little girls that were in their mother's womb and forming their eggs. Formed eggs with a predisposition to heart disease. All the little boys who were at the age of prove ready and beginning to form their sperm. Because of eating the fatted calf. They develop a predisposition and pass it on three or four generations. For heart disease may have been other diseases too but sicknesses that are result of the overconsumption. And there was an article in Times Magazine. And they entitled The article it was on this and they tie in title the article the sins of our fathers. Now that's the world recognizing that we know about predestined behavior you are predestined according to the conditions that you lived under in this case it was diet having a predestination. Effect upon them. And so in Romans eight. We learn about this. I will go over Rome's a that a little later. Well maybe maybe I should go over it now and eight fourteen says for as many as are led by the Spirit of God. They are the sons of God. So it's important that we be led by God because He will show us because what does this say in Exodus twenty verse six and five Exodus twenty verse five we. We hear about the sins of the fathers but what do we read in verse six. For those that love me and demonstrate it by obedience to God's Commandments another word eating the healthy diet which they in the lean years they the grain. They didn't eat the fatted calf. And so you had a health. To three or four generations as a result. Yes. Yes. Unless you broke that spell. By obeying God's laws to accept But it because in verse six A says for then that love Him and obey his commandments in other words start eating right. We're going to I'm going to going to start covering that to here. And so in Romans eight fourteen we see that we have to become He has to become our daddy. But let me let me continue into the. What we study so they began to say well what turns we see that diet turns on and off the switches priests know people have predestination for cancer their predestined for for diabetes heart disease. And so they want to know what can turn off the switches so they start a study and they started finding certain foods that turned the switches off. You don't have to live with a previous pre desk. Position or predestination. To these diseases. You can just flick them off so they found the sulfur groups in foods. Flick the switches off like garlic. And the the mustard family. Things that had that sulfur and flicked the switch it off and there's other things in diet. Yes. I don't know about that. I don't know. All I know is when it first came out. It was very clear in this thing. Now the waters are being very muddy done this subject because all the pharmaceutical companies are attempting to come out with a product that they will sell you to alter the condition. So the realisation that first came out was that food had the power to change these it created it in the first place and has the power to turn it off. That's not talked of much anymore but it came out at first. Another thing. I would like to cover it let me cover the things that turn that switch on and off. Because we want to know how to turn the switches on and on and so the next thing that they learn was that parenting had an effect upon the switch. And they realize this. That with rats. When they were they would have two types of mothers one type of mother would lick the little pups. And the other type of mother although she would feed him she would not let them. And the mother that fed the Pops. The rats grew up. And they were bold and inquisitive and. And you know would explore. But the pups that grew up on licked. They were shy skittish. Runs of the corner of the cage and hide when someone had to change it. And I and so looking OK. And then they. The next one that they came up with contaminants. Different contaminants had the power to flick those genetics which is the at these epigenetic switches on and off different types of toxic materials. And so I'm looking at this and I say. These are three of the a lot of health. You know. Our Father in heaven. When we come to him although we may have had parents that do not love us. Did not love us. When we come to our daddy in heaven. I'll go farther. And he starts becoming our protector. Our provider. Our comforter. You know what happens to those people. They may have had the characteristics of on loving parents but they start to change. They start to change the epigenetic flick. Switches start flicking on in their life and they become a new person in Christ Jesus. You see. But this is physiological to these switches are actually physically switched on. By knowing our daddy in Heaven cares for us. And so we also have learned to well anyway so I looked and I was so these are three the eight Laws of hell so I called a friend. Recognizes a computer and I say Rick these are three of the laws of hell. What do work in your fine. He starts looking called me back in two hours he found two more exercise and sunlight. Change that for to net X. which is an Oxford study in English show that. A couple hundred or more switches epigenetics which is where change. Turned on and off the. By the amount of sunlight we got the and the exercise of course we know how that rejuvenates us and can. Changes from run down condition to make us feel much better. And so about a year later. Another one appeared and that was rest. Rest and relaxation. SWICK done the epigenetics which is so now the six of the eight. Laws of health that we were given have the power to flick on and off these epigenetic switches for healthfulness all mental health physical health. Even spiritual health when we come to know our daddy in heaven and grow closer and closer to him. And so I just want to go over Romans eight with you right now. And just read I'm going to start a fourteen for as many as are led by the Spirit of God They are the sons of God For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear. The mice that would run in the corner rats it would run in the corner with fear for you have received the spirit of adoption whereby we cry for the other he is our daddy. And the spirit itself bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God. And if children then were heirs heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ. If so be. We suffer with Him that we may be also glorified together so you know is considered suffering. When you have to obey the commandments. For health or whatever. Commandment for sunlight. You know. Is may appear to be suffering you have to do what you don't want to have to do for I reckon that the suffering of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us that are change. A change in our whole be. Havior becoming more and more Christ like. But the next verse is very interesting. For the furnace expectation of the creature who waits for the manifestation of the sons of God. The creatures are waiting for us to have him in Daddy. And let these changes occur in us. Because watch what happens to the creature. For the creature was made subject to vanity. Genesis one twenty eight. All creatures are subject to our environmental impact our vain way of. You know this is a farming. Conference here. Are vain way of keeping the earth. Because all of the environmental impact is all because of how we kept the soil in the plants on the earth. All of it is a result of that. And the plants in the oceans and waters for the earnest expectation of the creature waits for the manifestation of the sons of God for the creature was made subject to vanity. Not willingly. But by reason of him who has subjected the same in hope. He put hope in those animals. The change back again. If we will allow our daddy in heaven to start leading our lives because the creature. Itself. Also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption and one of the bondage of degeneration seen in one verse into the glorious liberty of the children of God. The very animals themselves are going to be changed back. For we know that the whole creation groans interval is in pain together. Until now and not only they. But ourselves also which have the first fruits of the Spirit. Even we ourselves grown within ourselves. Waiting for the adoption. To know the reduction of our body. God has a plan a plan to not just change. Us. But to change the very animals in creation. Through the changes that occur in us because we have environmental impact over our sphere of influence our piece of land. Our farm. We have that impact over it. To alter the very genes. Of creatures. You know. Doctor saying Lee at the Wisconsin camp meeting in two thousand. Talked about. One of the discoveries and that was that we had a Sabbath keeping gene and he described this Sabbath keeping Gene how. On. Sundown. On Saturday. It just soars up in the production of some types of Onil chemicals of some sort that. Give us all kinds of energy to begin projects and things like that and all types of. And or G. to think and figure on thing. And then it immediately goes up like an upside down the you. And it just goes up and then it comes across through the way. And then on Friday it just plumb its and turns off for Sabbath. And we're just at rest for seven. So being reasonable he said Well. The animals must have a Sabbath keeping gene too so we began to look for animals that have Sabbath keeping J.s and he was giving this talk in Brazil and. And excited farmer came up and told him. I've got Sabbath keeping be. Now these were honey bees. So he says well OK let's go see him so they drove an hour out to visit his see his B.S. and. He didn't seem to be. And so he says. Where are they. Well they're inside the cave in this abbot. So he takes a hammer and bangs a hole in the side. And the bees come out and look around to serious go back in. So he says. I'm going to come back on Sunday he comes back on Sunday. Being hive of activity. Everywhere bees going all over the place. And so. But the thing that I find very interesting is that the honeybee there were no native honeybees to the Americas. So we're talking after genetics which is now so watch is no native. Honeybees to the Americas. So the Europeans we bring over these be to the Americas. These honeybees will they all came over with stingers. And they all came over with this. Laziness I call honeybees lazy. Because I have other bees and they're good workers honey bees if it's cloudy. When I go. You know. That's the way honey bees are. And so they're lazy. Well today in the Americas. We have a couple different kinds of honey bee. When he went and poked that hole into the side of that Dr Sangley jump back through the bees are going to come out mad. He said. The guy said don't worry. They don't have stingers. So although they were brought to the Americas. With a stinger just like the cockroaches it shut off. I predict you were being so well cared for by the Seventh Day Adventists. We don't need the stanger so they should. Epigenetic we switched it off. And this is the way the bees are going to be and haven't. They will not have the stingers honeybees won't have saying the switch is going to be switched off. Yet at the same time. Some beekeepers do not care well for their be. And I saw this. And we know about the African killer bees that were spread. Well. That has nothing to do with Africa I saw a youtube video of some fellow in Africa there are some of them I'd be there now then angry. You know you had come be. Why were these so the in a normal. What we call the normal hive. You know. Not the Sabbath keeping high. You have your guard bees and they'll come out and saying you. But in the. At the. The bees that will. Political The African killer bees. They will send the entire tribe out the sting you know it's not that they're more powerful with poison they have the same as much as the other be because they're basically the same thing. But they just everyone's going to come get you. And they don't let go though they'll be on you a quarter mile away when you're run and still on you trying to sting you. And so that's because it's the only way they can protect themselves. They don't have these caring people to care for the hiving give them protection all the time from anything. So they have been basically make it on their own and as they advance to the United States the. They're wild. Colonies and that's the only way to survive that they've got to be very vicious that's that predation that we see that the switches are turned on for real violence to be able to survive because they're in a violent world we have epigenetic lease which things on for so much violence here. But as we see in the. The with the capability of switching the switches off. They could be calm. To the fact that they are at our killer bees. And that they maintain this. Everybody goes after a missed something a bothers a hive that because no one is caring for them remember in epigenetics. It's the environmental influence that turns the switches on and off. Genetic breeding carries down wind so obviously there was a line of B.S. that they bred into the normal more calmer honey bee. A line of B.S. that had not been cared for that was very aggressive and they bred that aggressiveness in there because like. Said the honey bee is lazy. You know and they wanted a more aggressive beat it would get out there and do more work and take more of the. The brunt of all rough and Vironment that it has to live in. And so we see here in Romans a god was talking all about this and this is why I was making reference to predestination if you read a few verses farther on. In twenty nine thirty says for whom he did for no. He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his son that he might be the first born among many brother and. Moreover whom he did predestinate. He then. He also called in whom we called them he also justified and who need justified then he called Soul. Glorified God is going to glorify us. With that perfect character of Jesus. Now there's an important thing we need to consider. We have understood the importance of Bible study in prayer. To develop the perfect character of Jesus within us. Yet. We've been here. One hundred seventy years saying his coming. Is soon. So evidently we're missing something. The development of the character of Jesus in us. Entails body mind and spirit. Not just mind and spirit not just the Bible study. And not just the prayer. But the very body has to have the epigenetics which is turned on for the calm. The havior of Jesus. OK. And just to show the in significant then Crisis object lessons page sixty nine this is crisis waiting with a longing desire for the manifestation of themself initial church. When the character of Christ shall be perfectly reproduce and his people. Then he will come to claim them as is on. We've been focusing on Bible study and prayer to develop this perfect character. And it has not developed because we obviously haven't gotten our hundred forty four thousand such as the work can be finished. We're in the glass thing the body. And the part and this is why the lower thing good and recently introduced to us. What the scriptures mean in Romans eight. That these are actually. Epigenetics which is that need to be turned on another. And we turn them on in ourselves through obedience the eight Laws of hell. Now. This is an agricultural seminar. And I have basically told you what I told you because I want to give you a background. Now. How does this affect our plans. OK. The garden itself is under the laws of health. So we're just going to go over the eight Laws of health I'm going to use the new start. Acronym and E.-W. nutrition exercise water. Start S T A R T. Sunshine temperance air. Rest and trust in God yes. Now the eight Laws of health and nutrition. Now there's two kinds of nutrition. There is water soluble nutrition this is man's way is called fertilizing. And it can be chemical fertilisers or can be organic fertilizers I'm an organic farmer and I'm not knocking chemical farming because it sees thirty percent of planet Earth so I'm not knocking that people are being fed by it. But these guys are having a hard time. They're having a hard time so they're looking towards the organic camphor answer. But then there's a third way to farm and that's God's way. And I just came from a class with Maher McConnell was giving there. And he began to express and show. God's way. And this is what he called the soil. Food web. And in the in the soil we have these creatures who their activities. In relationship to the plant all these. We call microbes. So mall up by microbes all this little stuff in the soil there. And on the leaf surface. These microbes are designed by God to feed the plant. All the fertilizer. Needs. They don't need our intervention. Whether organic or chemical to fertilize the plant now the ground is seriously damage and we have to get it back into shape again. And that's going to require employ it. Of fertility. Preferably organic fertility. In order to build it back up but when this operating God's way as it did in the prairie when it supported one hundred twenty million bison. Great herds of antelope and L. great colonies of of prairie dogs. There was almost no water soluble for to Lety in the soil. That bit of feces and urine that fell. The feces was a made it legal build up by dung beetles they can remove an elephant pile in two hours. And Barry it all the way into the soil as food for their young. So it does not. It is not a polluted of form of fertilization plant under God's design in the forests of the world. And in the Perry's in the scrub lands and things like that are all operating by microbes feeding the plant. And the plant feeding them their carbs carbohydrates. Because they change takes on Lighton make the carbohydrates the feeds entire planet earth including the microbes and then as what Mark was saying they go out into the soil and take the the fungal fungi. Take the minerals in and bring it to the plant in the bacteria take the nitrogen out of the air and they make the nitrogen for the plant so all the fertility is supplied by these microbes. The the important role of the plant has that they have to feed them their car. They have to give him the energy do this. So here we have this relationship. Of service. The microbes serving the plants in the plants serving microbes in the more we study this. This service Remember Jesus said I have come not to serve but to to serve and minister unto others. This demonstrates the character of our God because our God loves to serve all His creation throughout the universe. He is serving moment by moment to give it every breath that it needs all the food for every meal that needs to be eaten on planet Earth and throughout the universe he is providing continuously. And so are God loves to serve so he has demonstrated in creation. All these acts of service. OK. Ten more minutes. So let's just go to exercise here. And exercise. How many have grown plants in a greenhouse. If you try to take in the point of my outside the wind just snap some off. Right. So they don't have enough potassium in the stem so the not strong so they have to be exercised by the wind. And as the wind blows upon them in exercises and that's why I. Take the tray and we put it out in the breeze is gentle breeze is so that shakes it in moves it then exercise causes potassium to come up into the STEM strengthens a stent. And now it can resist. The climate outside. So these are switches that have to be turned on a notice how quickly the switch is turned on. You just bring them out into and getting some exercise in the plan immediately start taking a potassium in a week later you're out planting them in the field. OK so these things are rapid these changes here so. A water. How many have observed. When it rains. As opposed to irrigating. When it rains double lot size of the of the plants. When it when you irrigate only half the crease. There's something in the rain word of God has a way of doing things that. That are that are best his way. And so we have the sunshine now sunshine is what provides the carbohydrates to feed everything on earth the energy and. Up where we are in Connecticut you can have a sunny summer you can have a cloudy summer. And when you have a cloudy summer. The brick levels. The sugar content of the apples are lower. But you have a sunny summer the birth levels are much higher much sweeter where we're having delicious apples fall because it's very dry and a lot of sunshine. And so that's change. You have. When the sun decreases in the horizon and gets towards form is less and less sunlight and the temperatures begin to drop. And you get your first cool night. I have a lot of grass. And they were new to me this year they put food on the first time and I didn't know what they were going to look like. And so on looking and everything's green and they're not going to get a bunch of greenish type apples or whatever and then one cool night overnight. The color popped out on it. That's pretty quick and epigenetics which all you know need is a Sunday creases in the horizon. As it gets later in the year. It cools down and you get that coal mine whom. Overnight the color. Comes out on the apples and you get to see what colors are going to develop and. And so we have. Temperance. And that's rather obvious we know not to be using the chemical fertilizers and things there's a lot of detriment to our plan to reduce equality. So we want to have. We want to use God's for Liz ation program for that. And then we have air. Now orchards are planted on the hillside for good air drainage and. If they don't they're going to frost in the in the and the valleys and also we preowned the trees for air circulation air is very important we prune apple trees I prune apple trees since I was thirteen. And so I've done that a lot of years and the fifty years I guess now. And that important so you can have the air circulation in there so you do not get the fungal diseases developing because you want to you want to take dry out quickly and not be too wet too long for two to reduce that also air circulation I just learned recently with late blight coming in we had this new form a late blight they came in from Mexico a few years ago and now it's here to stay. All over the United States eastern part anyways. And I noticed it when it came and hit my tomatoes those were in a tight block him all. Ninety five percent from Friday afternoon. To Sunday morning. Ninety five percent of the foliage went down late blight. Late. Blight. And so I notice. One row I had planted all by itself. And it only got hit about fifty percent and it continued to produce. And so I realized. Insufficient air circulation this blight like sit tight and if I have proper air circulation so now I plant my tomato wrote ten foot apart and set a five foot apart and I put a peppers none of the regs went down until I had that air circulation so air is very important. And so rest we all know about rest we got a rest our land on the seventh year. And that's so that the fungal microbes in the soil populations can build up and so they can break down the complex. Complex carbohydrates a lead in fibers. Lip the waxy ones break all these things down. And of course. Trust in God. You know we need to trust in his way to do things. Do I have. Now the five minutes OK now. Seed saving is also. We need to learn about the separate genetics which is when you're saving seed. Some of the seed. Today is is so a lot of it is soul has been raised with chemicals and when this phrase with chemical say chemical nitrogen. Or even excess of manure. Because they want to push the growth is called forcing when your fourth night huge and. They want to push it. What happens is the production of food for the microbes that make. Nitrogen fertilizer for you. Free from the air. They stop producing the food for because they don't want to feed them and have them give them even more nitrogen. So they turn it off they have to genetically turn those switches off. So when you buy see this been raised not. Organically. You have the switches on for chemical nitrogen production. And then you grow them in your garden. And they don't do so well because you're not giving them. Chemical nitrogen. They've had their Which has already turned so what you want to do is you'll see if you want to say that seed. And that's the only source you can get is from that chemical grower. You just take the best ones the ones that do. Did best in your Again excuse soil and grow again next year and you take the best again. And they all will turn the effort genetics which is off for chemical nitrogen. Supply and will turn the ones will on for being. They'll start feeding the microbes in the bacteria's in the soil. The bacteria's and the. You know they call they call them algae in the soil that produce nitrogen they'll start feeding them again these switches we turn right back on again. And so. Also to where you were you get your seeds for instance when you buy seed now it can come from anywhere on the planet. These these places this so you see. They just buy a bulk. From wherever it's grown cheapest on the planet. Well that seed is adapted to that environment. So now us to adapt it to your environment. And so you again. We have to start selecting seed. According to how well the your best plants in your environment. And then. Keep saving sea and you. In those conditions you have temperature. You have what zone it is how far north or south it whether it's tropical whether it's rainy or drier windy or whatever your conditions are so it's so important to save your own seed so. The switches will be turned on for your environment. And they sayings like you said. Evolution is rapid. It's rapid. It occurs very quickly so you want to make the changes in an interesting thing was I was growing peach trees Bob Jorgen suggested that I planted Peaches by seed. And I knew that Peaches by Siebel come. Fifty percent would be commercial grade. Color and size but the other fifty percent are still excellent even if they're a little smaller or the not is pretty they're still night. Can be nice features so I put in a bunch of them from some of my best. Nursery. Peach trees I bought in from a nursery. Took it from the best they actually they were the very oldest my father bought in forty some odd years ago and they're still growing. So I put them in the ground. Started a bunch of trees put them all out. Three growing seasons later this year. They set fruit. And I was very surprised it was about forty So these are forty different varieties I put out of the seventy five about forty produce those forty. Every one of those forty had better brown rot resistance than all my nursery stock trees. Well what I found out is. They don't they do not do selections anymore in nursery development of trees for resistance of the sea. They spray. Here regardless. And so there's no studies done anywhere on how to find grapes or payers or apples or peaches. Or plums or any of the seeing free from disease. That's you were told in commentary seven and Leviticus twenty five where to teach the world. How to grow fruit free from disease. And so we have to start doing is plant your apples the plant your pears see. Plant your P.C. plum see. Plants on and put him out. Don't put them out like an orchard far apart. Put in fairly close. Because one of the first things I do when they come up in my nursery. Is if they have leaf problems like Curly. I cut them down. Just kill them if they have problems. You're only trying to select the best so those forty. Had the best disease. Brown rot. Resistant better than all the other. And to I'm in particular had almost no brown rot. And I said wow that's off fast change from brown rot being the scourge of peaches. To pay shoes that are producing closure to the free from disease. And so this is some of the work we need to do we need to be working with our own seed saving your own seated. Become more adapted to your climate. The epigenetics which is get turned on. They will adjust themselves to your climate they will adjust to all kinds of things but you need to consider one thing like the cattle. Raisers. OK. Like the cattle raisers. They're switching over their beef and they want them to be grass fed. But the thing is it's going to take so long to develop grass fed beef from grain fed beef because it took a long time to get him there. They just slaughter I'm fine varieties that are grass fed and start there. So you want to go just go right to the heirlooms start within. There's a best chance to to use them so I hope you have some understanding on epigenetics now. What that. What about it. Those are the switches turned off or yeah I have. I had six different ones Yeah let's let's close with Vera because we want to be on time. Lord. We thank you for your wonderful design and Lord. Please help Adventism to know and be the head and not the tail. That evolution is rapid. And that we can get out there and make changes rapid changes Lord to show that we can have food grown free from the sea. Lord please help everyone here to to spread the word that we can do this and we need to do this because as we learn in Azikiwe thirty six when we give our our heart to you and you give us a new spirit Lord that you will change us Lord. And then our lands will begin to do produce and then they will become like a new and it will draw he overheard. We thank you for your way. Jesus. This media was brought to you by audio person.
