God the Mother…Is It Really in the Bible?

Have You Ever Heard About God the Mother?

When you think about God, do you think of God as a male or a female? I like asking this question when I meet people in the street, and the answer I get the most is …drum roll… male. There are other answers, which I will address later, but the vast majority of people I meet say male. Now, when I follow up asking them why they think like that, or where did they get the thought that God is only male? Most of the people I have met say that’s what they’ve learned growing up, but they do not really know why. Then when I ask them what religion they consider themselves, I discover the source of their belief, because they always say they are either Christian or Catholic. Preconceived notions have caused people to make mistakes, let me share with you a riddle that illustrates this.

A father and his son are in a car accident.

The father dies instantly, and the son is taken to the nearest hospital.

The doctor comes in and exclaims “I can’t operate on this boy.”

“Why not?” the nurse asks.

“Because he’s my son,” the doctor responds.

How is this possible?

I give you time to think.

Take your time before you continue reading.

The doctor is the boy’s mother.

If it took you some time to figure this riddle out, or if this is even a riddle although the answer is so simple, it’s because the established bias that exists in today’s society that all Doctors are males. In reality, we know that there are female doctors, but we usually associate the word “doctor” with a male, just like when you read the word “nurse,” admit it…you thought female.

The riddle above helps us understand the reason why most Christians think of God as a male, it is a preconceived notion based on tradition and not on the Bible. When I tell people that the Bible talks about God being both a Father and a Mother, most people say: “Really?” to which I reply… yes, really.

God in Genesis Said Let US, Not Let Me.

When we read the book of Genesis we can find that God the creator spoke in the plural form and not in the singular form.

Genesis 1:26  Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

When we see God create mankind, God did not say, “Let Me make man in my image,” or “Let there be man.” God clearly said, “Let Us make man in Our image, and in our likeness.” Then why did God the creator speak in plural? Theologians and scholars have come up with elaborate explanations to this question, here are the three most common ones:

Now all these elaborate suggestions could be right if verse 27 of Genesis chapter 1 didn’t exist. , but because verse 27 exists they are incorrect. Let’s read verse 26 and 27.

Genesis 1:26-27 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

As we can see in the image of God they were made, male and female. If the images that came out of God’s image are male and female, this means that the original – which is God – is also male and female. Therefore, the male image of God we refer to it as “Father,” then what should we call the female image of God? The right title is “Mother.”

God the Mother is not something new, the World Mission Society Church of God is not at a feminist rally out to prove to everyone God is a female also. God the Mother has always been in the Bible, it’s just that we didn’t know. Much like when everyone thought the earth was flat, it didn’t make it flat, people just didn’t know. In the same way, just because the majority of Christian’s think of God just as a Father, that doesn’t mean God is just a Father, Mother was always there.

God the Mother in Revelation

God the Mother appears in the book of Revelation as well, she appears as the bride of the Holy Spirit

Revelation 22:17  The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.

The Spirit and the Bride appear to give people the water of life. Most people here know that the Spirit refers to God the Father in accordance to the trinity, but who is the Bride? Let’s take a look one chapter before.

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 Bride is the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven. A good amount of Christians believe that an actual city is going to drop out of heaven, and that is how this prophecy will be fulfilled. But let’s think about this for a second.

Lamb Marries a City WMSCOG

The bible says that the Heavenly Jerusalem is the bride, the wife of the Lamb. The Lamb in this verse, is it talking about an actual 4 legged animal? Everyone knows this is not the case, but that the Lamb here refers to Jesus Christ. This is one of the many times something in the Bible is written in parables.

One thing to keep in mind is that the whole book of Revelation does not say that the Lamb is Jesus. The only reason we know that the Lamb is Jesus is because of another verse in the Bible.

1 Corinthians 5:7 … For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.

Just as Jesus is not an actual lamb, the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven is not an actual city. Then how can we know who the heavenly Jerusalem is? We learned who the Lamb was by referring to another verse in the Bible. In the same way, we must find a verse in the Bible that reveals who is the heavenly Jerusalem.

Galatians 4:26 – But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.

The title of “mother” is only given to the one who gives life, then if we are referring to the Jerusalem above as “mother,” it means She can give life. Also, in this verse, the word “above” indicates the kingdom of heaven (John 8:23). Analyzing this verse carefully we can see that the Jerusalem in Heaven can give life, but since we know that in heaven only God can give life, this must mean that the Jerusalem above is God; God our Mother. The Bride, the Wife of the Lamb, She is our Mother.

Seeing the verses above we come to understand that God the Mother was always in the Bible, but people did not know about Her. However, She is the one who alongside the Holy Spirit will give us the water of life, which is the way to Eternal Life.

The World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) believes in God the Mother on the basis of the Bible. Come to the nearest Church of God and receive the water of life, which is only given by the Spirit and the Bride.

    So amazing God the Mother has been in the bible the whole time! Even the word Father implies there is a Mother and children! Can’t believe I went my whole like not knowing this till now. It makes so much sense, every male walking around is made in the image of God the Father and every female walking around is made in the image of God the Mother! So clear! Thanks for the article!

    • Renesia

      I know Chanel ! I cannot believe I went my whole life with out knowing about Heavenly Mother !

    • Angie

      This video touch my heart so much! 😂I love it

  2. In Galatians 3 the Bible explains the law leads us to Christ. The law we should keep under the new covenant is Sabbath, Passover, Feasts of God, etc. If they don’t keep the law they can never realize the true Christ or His teaching about God the Mother. It’s pretty clear to me.

    Wow! Truly thanks to father and mother we are able to understand the greatest mystery of the bible with out Heavenly Mother there are so many unanswerable questions but because of her everything makes perfect sense its honestly so clear i hope everyone can accept Heavenly Father and Mother that way we can all go to the kingdom of heaven soon!!

  4. Renesia

    Wow ! This is as clear as it gets ! I’ve seen for my self the bible leads to God the Father and God the Mother ! For so long people only show you half of the picture just like when you see a child walking only with their father, but we never doubt there is a mother . If you study the bible in the church of God you will see the amazing truth of our Heavenly Father AND Heavenly Mother !! I’m so thankful I know the truth of my soul and my heavenly Family

    It is amazing and true that Our Heavenly Mother has been in the Bible the whole time without our knowing. To say that the existence of God the Mother is wrong because we were never taught that or because we never heard of that is downright…well arrogant. Our knowledge of something (or lack there of) doesn’t change what actually is. This is why humility in front of the Words of God is important.

    How many teachings of men and customs were we brought up with that are actually NOT in the Bible? Many people, Christian and non-Christian, are coming to find out about the reality of different “Christian” practice that are actually not Christian at all – Sunday, X-mas, Easter… Why don’t people get angry with their pastors for not telling them the origin of xmas? Yet when people see a teaching that is actually in the Bible as important as God who will give us life -God Our Mother – those people want to deny this truth! They defend what’s not in the Bible but dispute what actually is! What sense does this make? None, but God’s words ring true that state that They’ve only come for the lost sheep of Israel (John 8:47)

    The greatest mystery of the Bible is Heavenly Mother, thankfully she has been revealed in our lifetime. If we get rid of the notion that there is only a Father in heaven, it will be clear to realize that our Mother most also be there. Please take the time to visit us and see the Bible for yourself. Our life of faith can only be carried out according to the words of God, and they clearly speak of our Mother.

    Amazing post! Heavenly Mother is definitely in the Bible! Thank you!

  8. Antonia

    Amazing! So clear! God the mother absolutely exists!

  9. Jane H

    Very clear, God the Mother exists.

  10. Krissy

    The female image of God is my absolute favorite biblical topic to study. She ties everything together and without understanding about Her, the bible seems to make a lot less sense. After knowing about God the Mother, prophecies and parables and verses they all tie together in the most perfect way.

    I know for many people especially those who grew up learning that God is only male, it is a very hard concept to break. But it is pretty clear in the bible; and if you have faith in God, you have faith in every word the bible tells us. I feel so blessed to know about God the Mother and to be able to understand how the bible testifies about her!

    I love the example about the doctor in the article. It is amazing that our brains work this way when we have a preconceived notion of something. Thanks for sharing !!!!

    It makes total sense. The fact that male and female exists explains that there must be a Father and Mother God. If females did not exists it would be difficult to believe in God the Mother but due to the fact that females, moms do exists I do not find it difficult to believe in Mother God.

  12. Deymarie T.

    God the Mother is not only to be proven to be true thru the Bible but it also makes so much sense! God doesn’t create things for just no reason without a purpose; then what about the family system created by God? You see a dad, mom and children. And on top of that, no matter what type of species it is, life is given thru the mother by giving birth. God made it that way so we can understand about the heavenly family. We don’t only have our Father in heaven but we also have our heavenly Mother that gives us Eternal Life! 😀

    When I first heard about God the Mother, it just put the biggest smile on my face because I felt like I found the missing puzzle piece in my life; I hope you feel the same way too. Please take the time to come and see it all for yourself in the Bible 🙂

    Amazing post, the example with the doctor and the son was really good!

  14. Phil

    I have heard that riddle about the doctor before and remember how hard it was for me to figure out the answer. My brother and step dad had trouble also. Funny enough, my mother answered it right away. It really showed me that though I thought I viewed things objectively, I had a biased view on some topics. I now make sure I don’t do that when studying the Bible. God said every verse has its mate (Isaiah 34:16) so They (Father and Mother) gave the answer for us in the Bible already.

  15. Kimberly

    Wow this post is so heart warming and perfect! To know we have God the Father and God the Mother is a great blessing. I wish that everyone in this world could know and receive God the Mother who has always been there from the beginning! When I first heard about God the Mother I was shocked I never ever heard about Her. But when I saw it in the bible I was even more amazed! Please give a chance and have an open heart to learn about God the Mother your heart will be filled with so much joy and love!
