This is really the end times and strange things are happening. That is what naturally comes to mind after a pregnant 15-year-old girl, Latifah Smith-Nabengana, from Ohio, United States of America, claimed she is still a virgin and that she is carrying the child of Jesus Christ, after being ‘divinely impregnated’ during an encounter with an angel.
World Daily News reports that Smith-Nabengana says she was visited by an ‘Angel of God’ in July 2015, who told her that she had been chosen to bear the Christ’s son.
“He told me that he was a Nephilim, like those described in the Bible. He told that he had a message from Jesus, He said that I was going to be pregnant, and that I would give birth to a son, Jesus’ son.”
When she told her family about what the Nephilim allegedly told her, the very religious parents readily accepted her claim and showed flawless support for the 15-year old.
The medical doctor who has been following her pregnancy, Dr. William Franklin Murphy, says he is aware of his patient’s version, but is unable to either confirm or invalidate her claims.
“For all I know, her pregnancy seems normal. 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,” Dr. Murphy, a gynaecologist, said.
Due to laws concerning medical secrets, Dr. Murphy refused to discuss any details concerning the young woman’s pregnancy, but said it didn’t really have anything really unusual except her apparent virginity.
Smith-Nabengana has said she wants to demand a paternity test as soon as her son is born, to prove that she is telling the truth.
The teenager’s claim has stirred quite a controversy that has reached far beyond her religious community. While most people have shown their support to Ms. Smith-Nabengana, others have launched various accusations on the social media, ranging from fabricating the whole story to sleeping with a demonic creature known as an incubus.
What are Nephilims?
According to the encyclopedia, Nephilims are indeed mythical creatures that are mentioned in the Bible in Genesis 6:4:
“The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.”
