CHAPTER 6 – How Is God Involved in Human Reproduction?

{I have created a scriptural illustration that helps to understand God the Holy Spirit’s active participation in human reproduction. It is just before the SUMMARY.}
Psalms 71:6 Upon You {God} have I leaned and relied from birth; You are He Who took me from my mother’s womb and You have been my benefactor {/sponsor} from that day. My praise is continually of You. AMP

Just how does God work in the procreation process of humans down through the successive generations? Carefully study the following material. Not everyone wants YOU to know these truths! In fact, they are hard to find! Many people trained in the medical field know about these things, but they are not bringing forth the truth because it would reveal God as being real and involved with His creation!

My wife’s cousin’s husband {now deceased} was a gynecologist. After I understood this process, I asked him if what I knew was correct. He said it was. I asked him why it was so hard to obtain these simple facts. He said real quietly, “They do not want you to know.” “Who does not want us to know what?” I asked. He did not answer. Let’s take a look a human reproduction and you can make up your own mind! Was/is God involved in YOUR being here at this time and place in history? Man cannot do nor ever do what God does!
Luke 18:27 But He said, What is impossible with men is possible with God. [Gen 18:14; Jer 32:17.] AMP
Human Reproduction Specialists guesstimate that each human male is capable of producing at least ½ trillion to one trillion (1,000,000,000,000) plus sperm in his reproductive lifetime. The Encyclopedia Britannica gives us some insights as to the number of sperm in each man’s single ejaculate, “Only one sperm fertilizes each egg, even though about 200-300,000,000 sperm are contained in an average ejaculation. Each human egg {which is the largest cell in the female human body} and each human sperm {which is the smallest cell in the male human body} produced has slightly different genetic information carried in the chromosomes; this accounts for the differences and similarities between children of the same parents.”
The Encyclopedia Britannica further states that each human female contains “Hollow balls of cells—follicles—containing immature egg cells which are present in her ovaries at birth; there are usually 150,000 to 500,000 follicles or more at this time. When the female reaches adolescence and young adulthood, the number has been reduced to only about 34,000. During the active child-bearing years, normally between the ages 13 and 50, only 300 to 400 of the follicles undergo maturation.”
****{I researched the above stats several years ago when you could go online and Google “Encyclopedia Britannica – human sperm and human ovary,” and it would give you the above information. Britannica ceased printing hard copies of their Encyclopedia in 2012, and now you have to go online, register, have a “password,” and have to pay to get this information.}

I ASK YOU TO THINK ABOUT THIS!!! To put this into perspective – the male and female human reproductive systems are diametrically opposed in their physiological make up and operation. Your father continuously produces up to 1 trillion plus sperm during his 60 plus reproductive years. His sperm can be stored in his body for a short period of time and then reabsorbed unless ejaculated. Each ejaculate contains some 200-300 million sperm. Your natural father’s sperm and only your natural father’s sperm contains the DNA that produced you and continues in your genealogy. He also determines the sex of each of his offspring.

Your mother was born with all of her eggs stored in her ovaries. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT! WHY? Scientists have been desperately trying to prove that the human female produces additional eggs after her birth, but they have been unsuccessful. As it stands, this means these 300-400 eggs that will reach maturation and were stored in her ovaries at birth were actually formed in her at her conception. This begs some really interesting questions!!! What does this all mean? Was God the Holy Spirit actually present at her conception? Did He place in her eggs at that time the DNA for her family genealogy? Did God’s plans written in His Book of Life foreknow and predestine the joined together DNA from your mother’s one egg and your father’s one sperm that produced you with your DNA to continue your family tree/genealogy and the human race? Does God participate in the natural procreation process? YES, YES, YES, and YES!!!
In the natural human reproduction process – husband/male and wife/woman has sex that produces a baby – God the Holy Spirit is present at conception to put the right sperm with the right egg to produce the foreknown and predestined baby at the right time in history. He continues His “work” by creating and knitting together the baby’s innards and forming its spirit in its body in the mother’s womb.
Psalms 139:13 You {God the Holy Spirit} made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit them together in my mother’s womb. TLB
Zechariah 12:1 THE BURDEN or oracle (the thing to be lifted up) of the word of the Lord concerning Israel: Thus says the Lord, Who stretches out the heavens and lays the foundation of the earth and forms the spirit of man within him {at his conception – Ecclesiastes 11:5}: AMP
Ecclesiastes 11:5 God’s ways are as mysterious as the pathway of the wind {God the Holy Spirit – John 3:8} and as the manner in which a human spirit is infused into the little body of a baby while it is yet in its mother’s womb. TLB
Now comes the tricky part – how does one randomly produced but specific sperm from your father’s 60 years of trillion(s) of continuously produced sperm join up with one monthly randomly released but specific mature egg from your mother’s 300-400 eggs that will reach maturation stored in her ovaries from birth to produce YOU at the right time and place in history? Any other sperm from your father with the same egg from your mother or the same sperm from your father with any other egg from your mother would have resulted in another offspring – one of your siblings BUT NOT YOU! The fact is – your two parents are the ONLY two people in the whole history of the human race past, present, and future who could have naturally produced you! How is God involved in this natural process of procreation? Let’s use the sound mind of Christ to think this through.
You are a unique, one of a kind individual. Through the God ordained process of natural human procreation and only through His involvement in this natural coitus process, no other naturally conceived person in history of the entire world was, is, or ever will be an exact replica or duplicate of you. This is easily proven through physical identification. No other naturally conceived person in the world has identical mitochondrial DNA, an identical set of palm and fingerprints, an identical set of footprints, or an identical retina pattern as yours nor will any other person have your spirit! YOU are YOU and ONLY YOU are YOU!!! Again, how did King David know so much about human reproduction?
Psalms 139:13-14 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit them together in my mother’s womb. 14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! It is amazing to think about. Your workmanship is marvelous-and how well I know it. TLB

As previously stated, God’s foreknown and predestined plans for your life found in His Book of Life also includes your salvation and your ministry. It is interesting as I study Scripture that I find numerous places in the Old Testament where God talks about our salvation.
1 Timothy 2:3-4 For such [praying] is good and right, and [it is] pleasing and acceptable to God our Savior, 4 Who wishes all men to be saved and [increasingly] to perceive and recognize and discern and know precisely and correctly the [divine] Truth. AMP
Ephesians 1:4 Even as [in His love] He {God the Father} chose us [actually picked us out for Himself as His own] in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy (consecrated and set apart for Him) and blameless in His sight, even above reproach, before Him in love {“Born Again”}. AMP
Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed you {Jeremiah} in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you as a prophet to the nations. [Ex 33:12; Isa 49:1, 5; Rom 8:29.] AMP
Isaiah 57:15 For thus says the high and lofty One — He Who inhabits eternity, Whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place, but with him also who is of a thoroughly penitent and humble spirit {unsaved sinner}, to revive the spirit of the humble and to revive the heart of the thoroughly penitent {now forgiven sinner} [bruised with sorrow for sin]. [Matt 5:3.] AMP
