Q. I had a miscariage at 6 and 1/2 months. I did a Cleansing streams course at my church and the two ladies who ran this course were praying for me. I told them about my baby, one of the ladies told me that she saw a girl of about two years old standing next to me, looking at me and smiling, she described my granddaughter to a tee except my granddaughter has blue eyes and my baby had green. They told me that she watches me. Could you please try and help me discern how my baby would be two years old. I have no doubt she is with Jesus and I am grateful that she is safe, happy and with Him away from this troubled world. Although a cuddle would be great, but I’ll wait for that until I go home. Thank you and God bless you for this site. I have often asked this question of others, but no one can give me an answer.
A. While the thought of your baby watching over you is a pleasant one, I think you’re right to be skeptical. The Bible tells us that any kind of interaction between the living and the dead is forbidden (Deut. 18:11). I’m sure it’s because of the potential for abuse by our enemy in the spiritual realm. While there’s a lot of speculation fueled by unverifiable claims of what happens after death, the simple truth is that the Bible makes no mention of these things.
All we’re told is that we’ll be reunited with children and believing adults from our time here when we get there. We’ll know them and they’ll know us, but 1 Cor. 15:35-38 tells us that wondering what we’ll be like or look like is foolishness that shouldn’t occupy our minds.
You are justified in believing that your unborn child is with Jesus and that one day you’ll be reunited. Anything beyond that is the kind of speculation that Paul warned us against.
