God the Father and God the Mother: The Magnificent Artists
Mankind has been graced with the appearance of various artists over time: Michelangelo, Picasso, Leonardo Da Vinci, and more. Their magnificent creations have imprinted a lasting mark in world history. One of the greatest artists that has appeared over time, and even until this day, is God.
One thing that is understood through art is that you can recognize the artist by a certain style or pattern that one follows in each of his or her works. For example, Michelangelo is known for his extravagant religious paintings of biblical characters or scenes. In the same way, God’s creation pattern can be seen: the characteristics of 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.
Examining God’s creation masterpiece, we see that there is a consistent pattern of living organisms generally existing as male and female. Through birds, cats, dogs, horses, and even human beings, life follows that same pattern. The Bible lets us know that this is an intentional characteristic of God’s artistic pattern.
Then, what is God trying to show us about his will through the creation of life as male and female?
Romans 1:19-20 Since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
Paul testified that God’s divine qualities can be seen through the creation work. This shows that God’s creation of male and female reveals something about God’s characteristics. In other words, just as male and female is the distinctive characteristic seen in life on earth, God, too, has the male and female image. In other words, this shows there is a God the Father and God the Mother.
The Existence of God the Mother
Contrary to general Christian beliefs, the Bible testifies that there is a male God, who is God the Father, and a female God, who is God the Mother.
Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness…”
God, when he created mankind, said “Let us”. If God the Father crated mankind alone, which is the general Christian assumption, the Bible should say “Let me make mankind”, or “I will make mankind”. However, this is now what is written in the Bible. Then, who was with God the Father when he created mankind?
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 says male and female were created as a reflection of the image of God. This shows that the image of mankind, male and female, is a direct copy of God’s appearance.
Just as male and female is the distinctive characteristic reflected in God’s masterpiece creation called life, God exists as a male and female. In other words, there is a God the Father and God the Mother.
Matthew 6:9 This, then, is how you should pray: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,”
Galatians 4:26 But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.
The divine quality that we can see from all of God’s creation is the existence of God the Father and God the Mother, through the existence of males and females as well.
The Blessing of Knowing God the Mother:
Then, why is it important to know about the existence of God the Mother?
Revelation 22:17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come”. Let the one who is thirsty come, and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.
The Spirit and the Bride are prophesied to appear in the last days. Here, the Spirit (the Holy Spirit) refers to God the Father. Who, then, is the bride?
Revelation 21:9-10 One of the seven angels who have the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and said to me, “Come, I will how 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.
Galatians 4:26 Bit the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our Mother.
The Spirit and the bride, that is, God the Father and God the Mother, are prophesied in the Bible to appear in the last days to give the water of life. Concerning this water of life, Jesus said:
John 4:14 but whoever drinks the water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.
The water of life, namely eternal life, is given by the Spirit and the Bride, God the Father and God the Mother, in the last days. Knowing and believing in God the Father and God the Mother enables us to receive eternal life. To enable us the opportunity to receive this gift, God the Father and God the Mother reveal their existence through the masterpiece of life on earth.
God the Father and God the Mother, the divine artists, have shown Their existence through Their magnificent creation that we see every day. Remembering Their masterpiece called life on earth, let us always remind ourselves of God the Father and God the Mother, who have appeared in the last days as the great Artists who author the salvation of our souls.
