I read an article on Facebook today, about a mother who was in a coma, responded to her newborn baby’s cry. At another time I read about how a newborn dead baby started to breath as his mother spoke to him how she loved him as she held him close to her heart. These articles are featured on the internet.
These wonderful stories show the power of the bond between the mother and baby that is established in the womb. The baby hears his mother’s heart beat and voice for nine months. Though in a coma the mother’s heart responds to her crying baby.
When a baby is born new life comes into the world. The infant will grow to be a man or woman. He or she has the potential to make a big difference to the people or nation where she lives. A baby is not a mistake, or a blob of cells that can be aborted without consequences. He is a person lovingly created in his mother’s womb by our Heavenly Father. A baby is not descended from apes! He is created in God’s image. In fact god gives each child angels to watch out for him.
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him: male and female created he them.
And God blessed them, and God said to them, Be fruitful, and multiply and replenish the earth and subdue it. Genesis 1 v 26 – 28.
Satan is jealous and hates humans because we are made in God’s image. He robbed Adam and Eve of their idealic life in the Garden of Eden. Satan cannot create life. God blessed Adam and Eve with children. Satan hates women and children.
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. (Genesis 3:15 KJV)
He doesn’t want life coming forth. He knew that a child would be born that would bring about his downfall and defeat.
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end. (Isaiah 9:6-7 KJV)
This child is Jesus. He grew up and died for us on the cross to deliver us from the power of Satan. We need not fear him any more.
In this way, he disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his (Jesus) victory over them on the cross. (Colossians 2:15 NLT)
God blessed Brendan and I with fourteen children. I believed God’s promise to bless me to the thousandth generation as I obey him.
But I lavish unfailing love for a thousand generations on those who love me and obey my commands. (Exodus 20:6 NLT)
I believe that children are a blessing from The Lord. God gave Brendan and I the power to have and rear our children. We could not have accomplished this task in our own strength.
“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. (John 15:5 NLT)
When I was dying from cancer my husband, children and grandchildren prayed for me. Their prayers and the prayers of many brought about my healing. My children helped me in my hour of need. Thay defeated Satan’s plans to kill me. Each believer has the potential to defeat Satan. Many do not know that.
He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. (Luke 10:18-19 NIV)
I now take up the authority Jesus has given me over the power of Satan, the power of the Blood of Jesus and the name of Jesus. My children, offspring or seed too will crush Satan.
God had a plan when he blessed me with fourteen children!
