God the Mother

The origin of life on earth has long eluded mankind, never ceasing to be one of the most popular topics of discussion amongst researchers and scientists.

However, the Bible contains testimony about God—the Creator of life itself. It explains God’s providence in creating life and the way He ordained life to be given. Through careful insight into God’s words, we can understand why God designated mothers to bear children.

Eve Represents God the Mother

The miracle of life given through mothers is revealed through God’s plan of salvation. When Jesus Christ appeared 2,000 years ago, He promised to give eternal life. However, He did not give it right then and there.

“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.”
John 6:40

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

Jesus said that those who believe in Him would not be raised up, or resurrected, with eternal life until the last day. Why didn’t He give eternal life right after suffering extreme pain on the cross for our sins? We can understand why Christ declared to give eternal life at the last day through a biblical figure who represents Christ.

Now Adam is a symbol, a representation of Christ, who was yet to come.
Romans 5:14 (NLT)

The Bible tells us that Adam represents Christ—the male image of God. After God created Adam, He said, “It is not good for the man to be alone,” and created Eve to be his suitable helper (Gen 2:18-22). Where there is Adam, there is also Eve. In other words, just as Adam represents God the Father, Eve represents God the Mother.

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

The name “Eve” means living or life. Adam could not give life, which is why he needed a suitable helper. In the same way, Jesus Christ appeared alone 2,000 years ago and said that He could not give eternal life until the last day. It’s because God the Mother, represented by Eve, still had not appeared.

The Bible prophesies the second coming of Christ before the last day (Heb 9:28). The only disparity between His first coming and second coming is that He is to appear with His wife, that is, God the Mother. She is the life-giver who will grant eternal life to all people (Rev 22:17, 21:9-10, Gal 4:26).

Inheritance of Life

God earnestly wants us to know how to receive eternal life. For this reason, God shows us the reality of life through the creation.

They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.
Romans 1:19-20 (NLT)

Every creature under the sun has a limited lifespan. Mayflies are nicknamed dayflies because they typically live for a day. Elephants have a life span of about 60 years. On the other end of the spectrum, sea turtles can live up to 200 years or more.

Despite breathing the same air, all living organisms vary drastically in lifespan. The reason behind such a phenomenon is explained through the lifespan inheritance from mothers. Mayflies only live for a day because their mothers live for a day. Sea turtles can live up to 200 years because their mothers are able to live that long.

God lets each animal species have a lifespan equivalent to their mothers’ lifespan. So, how long will God let us live?

And this is the promise that He has promised us—eternal life.
1 John 2:25 (NKJV)

Since our spiritual Father and Mother are eternal beings, our lifespan is eternal. God’s eternal power and divine nature, which is displayed throughout creation, shows us that the One responsible for giving us eternal life is God the Mother.

The Source of Eternal Life

The human body has trillions of cells. In each and every one of these cells are organelles called mitochondria. Biologists describe mitochondria as power generators because they produce 90% of the energy needed to support cellular life.

While mitochondria play such a crucial role, it’s important to know that the mitochondrial DNA is passed down only from a mother to her child. This is completely different from nuclear DNA, which a child inherits from both parents.

Mitochondria are paramount to our existence and life itself. The fact that they are passed down only from mothers shows that mothers are the primary source of life.

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

Just as we have human mothers whom we inherit life-giving DNA from, we have God the Mother who gives us immortality through Her eternal DNA. Our spiritual Mother is the Heavenly Jerusalem, whom we can find more testimony about in the book of Revelation.

“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.
Revelation 21:9-10

The Jerusalem from heaven is the wife of the Lamb. This is definitely not a story about a city and an animal getting married. It’s a prophecy concerning the appearance of God the Father and God the Mother.

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.
Revelation 22:17

The Holy Spirit is God the Father and His Bride, as testified previously, is the Heavenly Jerusalem—God the Mother. Together, they have appeared in this age to give us life. Water is the essence of life. In the same way, the water of life our Father and Mother are giving us is eternal life for our spirit.

The absolute source of eternal life is our Heavenly Mother. God lets us know this through numerous proofs. Visit your local World Mission Society Church of God and schedule a Bible study to learn more about the existence of God the Mother and the testimony about Her in the Bible.
