Pastor E.A. Adeboye while preaching to his members on the topic, “By His Stripes”, during the September 2022 Thanksgiving Service, revealed why Jesus never had a biological child.
He started by discussing the spiritual law of substitution. He affirmed that substitution occurs when someone is meant to suffer ill and another person takes his place. Therefore, Jesus became our substitute when he was made sin so we will be righteous (1 John 1:7, 1Peter 2:24).
Speaking on why Jesus never had a biological child, Pastor Adeboye said the reason is that it will make us not to be barren. “He never had a biological child so that you would never be barren”, he said.
