God the Mother, the Source of Eternal Life

The great promise of eternal life

In the Church of God, we believe in the existence of God the Father and God the Mother as testified in the bible. Let us study about this by learning the great title God gives us.

Galatians 4:28 Now you, brothers and sisters, like Isaac, are children of promise.

God grants us the blessing of being the children of promise. As God is the source of the promise, it is essential for our salvation. However, what is the promise that God has reserved for us?

1 John 2:25 And this is what he promised us – eternal life.

God’s great promise to us is the promise of our spiritual, eternal life. As this promise can only be given by God, it is pertinent that we know and follow God’s established plan to give us eternal life. Without receiving this promise, can we dwell in the kingdom of heaven? Then, what does the Bible say about God’s plan to grant us eternal life?

God’s will in creating physical life

Revelation 4:11 ‘You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.’

God is the creator of all things and in each creation, God had a purpose and reason for that creation; nothing was created arbitrarily. Amongst the infinite spectrum that God created, let us assess how God created physical life.

Almost every living being receives their physical life from a father and a mother. This applies to plants, animals and humans. Nevertheless, in many cases, physical life is given through the physical mother. As this is God’s creation, there must be God’s will in it. This will is to show us that just as our physical life is given by our physical mothers, our spiritual life will be given by our spiritual Mother. Then, let us see the existence of our spiritual Mother through the Bible.

God the Mother testified in the Bible

Genesis 1:26 Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky…’

Across many cultures, we are taught that there exists only God the Father. However, if this were true, should the singular God refer to Himself in the singular form or in the plural form? Surely, singular God would refer to Himself in the singular form. Nonetheless, this contradicts the words spoken by God during the creation of mankind. God clearly refer to Themselves in the plural form by stating “let us…” instead of “let me…”. This discredits the teaching that there is only God the Father. So, who else exists?

Genesis 1:27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

The Bible teaches that man’s image is a copy and shadow of God’s image. It also defines said image to be male and female. From this, we can understand that there must exist God the Mother as well as God the Father.

As God had a purpose in all creation, there was a reason for the creation of Adam. What is that reason?

Heavenly Mother, the source of our spiritual life

Romans 5:14 Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who is a pattern of the one to come.

Given that Adam is a pattern of the One to come (i.e. Christ), we can understand that through Adam, we can learn about Christ. Eve was created to be the wife of Adam. Thus, the reality to Adam (i.e. God the Father) must also have a wife, the equivalent reality to Eve (i.e. God the Mother).

Genesis 3:20 Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living.

In the garden of Eden, there was one thing Adam could not do; give life to another being. Physical life could only be given once Eve was created. This was a prophecy showing that our spiritual life can only begin when Heavenly Mother, the reality to Eve, is revealed to the world. Christ explained this prophecy.

John 6:39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.

What does it mean to be “raised up”?

John 6:40 ‘For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.’

To be “raised up” means to receive eternal life.

John 6:44 ‘No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them, and I will raise them up at the last day.’

John 6:54 ‘Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last days.’

Four times, Christs repeats that the saints would be raised up (receive eternal life) in the last days. But why wait until the last days? Did the saints of the early church who were willing to die for Christ not have the needed faith? Was Christ unable to give them eternal life? No, this was a prophecy to show that the One who would give eternal life would appear in the last days. We can confirm this through the book of Revelation, which speaks about the last days.

God the Mother appears in the last days

Revelation 19:7 ‘Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.’

As first coming Christ did not have a bride, it can be deduced that the Lamb refers to the second coming Christ. Then who is His bride?

Revelation 21:9-10 One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and said to me, ‘Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.’ And he carried me away in the spirit to a mountain great and high and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.

The angel told John he would show him the wife of the Lamb. Then whom did the angel show to him? It was Heavenly Jerusalem. The bride, wife of the Lamb, whom the angel showed to John was Heavenly Jerusalem. Then who is the wife of the Lamb, Heavenly Jerusalem, to us?  We must understand the real nature of the Holy City Jerusalem.

Galatians 4:26 But the Jerusalem that is above is free and she is our Mother.

The Jerusalem that is above refers to the Holy City Jerusalem coming down out of heaven. The Bible clearly states our relationship to Her; She is our Mother. Who do the “our” refer to?

Galatians 4:28 Now you, brothers and sisters, like Isaac, are children of promise.

The “our” refer to those who have the promise of eternal life. The goal of our whole life of faith is to be the children of promise. However, to fulfill this goal, we must share their characteristics. Let us confirm their characteristics.

Galatians 4:31 Therefore, brothers and sisters, we are not children of the slave woman, but of the free woman.

The children of promise are children of the “free woman”, who is Heavenly Mother (Gal 4:26). Therefore, in order for us to be children of promise, we have to be born of Heavenly Mother.

The World Mission Society Church of God is the only church in the world where Heavenly Mother dwells. So shouldn’t all Her children dwell there too? Let us receive God’s blessing of being the children of promise by dwelling with Heavenly Mother.
