Recently, I saw a video of a parent harming their baby. I have seen babies and children being molested, abused and murdered but these people keep on having children. I just don’t understand. If a baby is a miracle and blessing from God, why does he allow people to have children that are only going to abuse, abandon or abort them?

Question: I know that Infertility and miscarriage are caused by some form of sickness, disease or complication and that Jesus is seated because His work is finished. So what if it’s not a sickness or disease preventing conception? I have major damage in my reproductive organs. I also have friends whose tubes were removed and another friend who has gone through early menopause. So in situations like these is a creative miracle needed? If so, I know miracles happen everyday and nothing is impossible with God but my question is “How do you believe for a creative miracle if Jesus work is finished?”
Answer: You are right that generally infertility and miscarriage are caused by a sickness, disease or complication in the mother, father or unborn baby and that Jesus has already provided healing for ALL forms of sickness and disease through the finished work of the Cross. And anyone who believes in Jesus can lay hold of the victory Jesus purchased by co-labouring with Him to see His Healing power released for that area or situation in their lives.
If there’s something missing or something has been removed from your body (such as reproductive organs) through an abnormality, birth defect or surgery then a creative miracle is needed because you can’t heal something that is not there. So a creative miracle is required to replace what was damaged or missing.
The good news is that Paul described the gifts of the Spirit in 1 Corinthians 12 and he revealed that healing and miracles are available to and through the body of Christ today:
Now there are distinctive varieties and distributions of endowments; gifts, extraordinary powers distinguishing certain Christians, due to the power of divine grace operating in their souls by the Holy Spirit and they vary, but the Holy Spirit remains the same. 5 And there are distinctive varieties of service and ministration, but it is the same Lord Who is served. 6 And there are distinctive varieties of operation of working to accomplish things, but it is the same God Who inspires and energises them all in all. 7 But to each one is given the manifestation of the Holy Spirit; the evidence, the spiritual illumination of the Spirit for good and profit. 1 Corinthians 12:4-7 Amp
The Apostle Paul then goes on in verses 8-11 to list the gifts (manifestation of extraordinary powers) that flow by the power of God’s divine grace operating in our souls (mind, will, intellect) which are; wisdom, knowledge and understanding, wonder-working faith, powers of healing, working of miracles, prophesy, discerning of Spirits, various kinds of tongues, and the ability to interpret such tongues.
Paul not only revealed what was available but also how it flows to and through the body of Christ, and that is through the manifestation of the indwelling Holy Spirit! In fact when this power is at work IN US God can do superabundantly far over and beyond what we can even dream think or imagine:
Now to Him Who, by in consequence of the action of His power that is at work within us, is able to carry out His purpose and do superabundantly, far over and above all that we dare ask or think infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams— Ephesians 3:20 Amp
This truth will bring hope and be an encouragement to many but will also be a stumbling block to some because rather than resting in Jesus ability they will end up struggling in their own self effort, trying to make a miracle happen. But as we just read in the Scripture above, how we see God do far over and beyond what we can even dream, think or imagine is according to “His power” that is “at work in us”! It is God’s power working in us and not our own! So let me encourage you not to get caught up in your flesh trying to make your breakthrough happen, but instead look to Jesus, who is the author and perfector of your faith, because when it comes to the miraculous always remember that it is:
Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty. Zechariah 4:6b NIV
So don’t struggle in your own ability, because healing or creative miracles will not manifest by human will, head knowledge or by the work of your flesh. They flow by the power and fruit of the Holy Spirit. We simply need to come into agreement with and partner (co-labour) with God’s indwelling Spirit so that He can reveal His wisdom, revelation, counsel and supernatural power for our breakthrough.
So if you need a miraculous healing or creative miracle, don’t struggle in your own ability, instead rest in Jesus power by partnering with Him so that His life, presence and supernatural power can freely flow!

There is ONLY ONE Generational Curse; Adam’s!
There is so much misunderstanding in the body of Christ on the subject of curses. And because of this confusion many are caught in bondage.
I believe the reason for the misunderstanding is from the following Scripture…
Ex 34:6-7 KJV And the Lord passed by before him (Moses) and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, 7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity (a) and transgression (b) and sin (c), and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity (d) of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation. (Numbers 14:18 says the same).
On the surface this scripture looks quite condemning but as we dig deeper than what the literal words are saying we find a wonderful consistent truth that is easy to determine.

Question: – How Come God has NOT healed me or given me a Baby yet?
Answer: When it comes to the Finished Work of the Cross and what Jesus has ALREADY purchased, this is ALREADY your inheritance!
God is NOT Withholding from you!
The truth is that God cannot withhold (or withdraw) what He has already freely done through His son. If you are in Christ then what Jesus purchased is already your inheritance. You received this inheritance when you first came into relationship with Him!
When you first accepted Jesus free gift of Salvation did He have to go and die all over again for your sins? No! Why? Because He already provided the way for you (and for the whole world) 2000 years ago. Likewise, He does not need to shed one more drop of blood to redeem you from the consequences of sin, or take one more stripe for your healing!
What Jesus did on the Cross was a complete, perfect and finished work!
When we received the free gift of Salvation we entered into a position of rest, which is a Covenant relationship based on Jesus performance and not on our own. Did you know that God is not going to heal you or make you fruitful? Do you know why?
Because He already has!
Healing has already been established for you! It was signed and sealed by the blood of Jesus. So instead of praying, begging or waiting for God to move know that God has already moved! He has already sent forth His Word and healed, you delivered you, redeemed you, prospered you and made you FRUITFUL and whole! Psalm 103:1-3 says that God forgives ALL sin, and heals ALL diseases and 2 Pet 2:24 says “By His stripes we were healed” – Note that for New Covenant believers that this is ALL past tense!
Remember always the simple truth that: Infertility, miscarriage, pregnancy health issues, baby health issues, childbirth or postnatal complications and whatever causes this are simply different forms of sickness or disease manifesting in reproductive health! But know that Jesus paid the price for all forms of sickness and disease no matter what shape or form they manifest in: headache, toothache, infertility, miscarriage, arthritis, stomach ulcers, back conditions or cancer! It’s all the same to God! We grade sickness into a hierarchy and exalt certain conditions above others. But we need to stop analysing sickness through a natural or medical mindset and instead bring it ALL subject to the truth of the cross and see it how God sees it – It is disarmed, defeated and FINISHED through Jesus finished work!
Therefore, I encourage you to renew your mind with the truth that God has ALREADY done everything He could possibly do! IT IS FINISHED! Sickness, disease, infertility and miscarriage are FINISHED! God has finished His part, it is now up to you to get to KNOW, BELIEVE and ACT on this truth so you can see His power released to transform every area of your life.
Some simple steps to help you act on this truth is:
Find what God’s Word says about healing and/or children
Spend time meditating and renewing your mind with this truth so it becomes real and ALIVE to you personally
Relationship – Spend time in fellowship with God – be still in His presence and let Him guide and lead you into your victory.
Put it into Practice by acting on what you believe you have received through Jesus finished work! Phil 4:9 (NIV) says “Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you”.
And my prayer for you is that the rest will be History!

Question: Why is God allowing me to suffer with Barrenness?
Please read my previous blog post to answer this Question further: FAQ – If God is in control, why have I not conceived yet?
The Good News is that God is not “allowing you to suffer”. He has already pre-responded to barrenness through Jesus finished work!
This is another Frequently Asked Question that I receive.
I pray that my answers to all of these FAQ’s will help you to renew your mind to God’s goodness and to know that He is ALWAYS willing, ready and able to show Himself strong to you in your time of need!
This question and others like it come from the assumption that God is withholding from us. But does this line up with the nature of God described throughout the Bible?
I believe that if God was in control of everything that happens in our life then NO ONE would be sick, die or suffer and NO ONE would miscarry or be barren!
Have I got you thinking?
