Latifah Smith-Nabengana a 15-year old teenager from Ohio USA has claimed that she has been visited by an angel of God who said to her that she had been chosen to bear Jesus Christ’s son.
She said:“He told me that he was a Nephilim, like those described in the Bible, he told me that he had a message from Jesus, He said that I was going to be pregnant, and that I would give birth to Jesus’ son.”
The name Nephilim is a type of creature that have been almost unheard of over the last few thousand years, it is a mythical creatures mentioned in Genesis 6:4 :
“The Nephilim were on the earth in those days and also afterwards when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown” New International Version.
Dr. William Franklin Murphy the medical doctor in charge of the pregnant teenager says he is not able to authenticate Latifah Smith claim.
Dr. William Franklin Murphy said:
“For all I know, her pregnancy seems normal,” claims the gynecologist. “Her claims of “Virgin pregnancy” are technically true, but that doesn’t mean there was a divine intervention. I can tell you that it’s a boy, but there no way for me to determine if it is Jesus’ son until he is born. If she asks for a DNA test at that time, then we can tell you who the father is.”
Latifah Smith-Nabengana claim has stimulated a lot of controversy that has stretched far beyond her religious community. The teenager, however, requested that a paternity test be conducted as soon as her son is born, to prove that she her story is true.
Though her family being very religious themselves accepted the 15-year old teenagers claim and showed her impeccable support.Her story will however in the United States continue to generate a lot of debates and stir a lot of emotions across the world.
