Our Heavenly Mother and Daughter
The mystery of God and the royal members of the Godhead family are best understood from the Bible as revealed truth. The old King James Version is from the Received Text or the Majority Text, byzantine, and syriac Greek manuscripts of the New Testament. The Masoretic text of Hebrew and Aramaic are the manuscripts of the Old Testament. These ancient texts reveal the God family and their relationship to humanity.
There are many ideas and Bible interpretation teachings about God:
In this body of knowledge, I will focus on number 5, the Biblical doctrine of the royal members of the Godhead family. I will focus on the Bible, the influence of the Holy Spirit, and human reasoning to share with you the Biblical revelation of the heavenly family. I will quote scripture support as I proceed to present this message.
As this message is controversial, I do not present it in a dogmatic, authoritarian way; but in an educational context. Allow yourself to think outside of the box for a while and expand your mind with the fuller revelation that God is pleased to give you.
Before I proceed, I will mention the existence of a counterfeit mother or daughter of God. This is a demonic spirit that claims to heal diseases and answer prayers for people. She has many occult names and has been worshipped by the heathen for centuries. Today she’s mostly known as Mary; but she’s been called Lilith, Ishtar, Astarte, Anath, and many others. In the Bible, she’s known as Ashtoreth, Asherah, and the Queen of heaven. Also there was the great goddess Diana or Artemis of the Ephesians. Acts 19: 24-40. We certainly don’t want to follow the same mistake as they did and worship a false god that leads to separation from the Creator of heaven and earth.
We have no bible record that Mary, the mother of Jesus, is god or in heaven or even alive at this time. The Bible teaches that the dead know nothing, are asleep, and await the resurrection of the dead in God’s time. This is a whole separate topic on the state of the dead. I encourage you to study this out also. Seventh Day Adventists teach that the dead have no conscious awareness and are asleep also according to the Bible. 1Thessalonians 4:13-18. John 11:11-14. Ecclesiastes 9:4-6,10.
I will quote Bible texts about the worship of a false goddess.
1Kings 11:33 Because that they have forsaken me, and have worshipped Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, Chemosh the god of the Moabites, and Milcom the god of the children of Ammon, and have not walked in my ways, to do that which is right in mine eyes, and to keep my statutes and my judgments, as did David his father.
Jeremiah 44:25 Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saying; You and your wives have both spoken with your mouths, and fulfilled with your hand, saying, We will surely perform our vows that we have vowed, to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her: you will surely accomplish your vows, and surely perform your vows.
Acts 19:35 And when the town clerk had appeased (calmed down) the people, he said, You men of Ephesus, what man is there that knows not how that the city of the Ephesians is a worshipper of the great goddess Diana, and of the image which fell down from Jupiter?
Just because there is a counterfeit, does not justify throwing out or disowning the true One. Because there is a counterfeit Sabbath, a false god, erroneous religions and belief systems, etc. does not mean that we reject the true ones. We must have discernment and follow the truth of the Bible as Christians. I like to retain an open mind and am willing to be continually taught of God and the truth as revealed in scripture.
How can you have a Father without a Mother? How can you have a Son without a mother? How can you have a complete family without a Father, Mother, Son, and daughter? Is the God family our heavenly Parents? Do the God family care about their offspring or children here on earth? If so, then why does life seem so hard and difficult at times? I will do my best to explain these answers to you in a satisfactory way.
Acts 17:29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.
This verse reveals that we are the children of God. We were made in God’s image and likeness. When we look in the mirror, we see a resemblance of our Father or Mother above.
In the beginning, God (Hebrew word Elohim, plural, male and female, Gods), our Father and Mother, were in existence. Genesis 1:1. Beyond this simple revelation, the Bible does not explain in much detail. At some point in the long ago past, the heavenly Mother gave birth to the only begotten Son and the only begotten Daughter of God. They may have been fraternal twins. Song of Solomon 8:1. The Son and Daughter both have many names in the Bible. The only begotten Son and the only begotten Daughter of the Most High God are the direct children of the original Father and Mother from above in paradise.
Please have patience as I explain how this is derived from a study of Holy Scripture. I know this is very different from traditional views.
Genesis 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
This verse describes how, as the first marriage couple, Adam left his Father and his Mother to cling to his wife Eve. To leave father and mother is in the sense of giving attention to his wife or spouse and caring for her needs. Of course he is still responsible to honor and answer to his father and mother to some degree. Of course we retain worship of our Father above. Adam’s Father and Mother are his heavenly parents.
Luke 3:38 Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.
Our father and mother are our earthly parents; but we also have our heavenly parents. Consider these verses.
Proverbs 1:8,9 My son, hear the instruction of your father, and forsake not the law of your mother: For they shall be an ornament of grace unto your head, and chains about your neck.
Proverbs 6:20,21 My son, keep your father's commandment, and forsake not the law of your mother: Bind them continually upon your heart, and tie them about your neck.
These verses reveal our heavenly parents as Father and Mother from above. Many earthly parents do no know or worship God; so their laws are not always good for us, their children. But the law from above is perfect, converting the soul. Psalms 19; 7.
Then we have this prayer from Jesus in Psalms.
Psalm 22:9,10 But you are he that took me out of the womb: you did make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts. I was cast upon you from the womb: you are my God from my mother's belly.
These verses are the dying words of Jesus while hanging on the cruel cross. He then remembered his mother. This can have application to both his earthly mother Mary and also his heavenly Mother from above. Jesus declares that the Father delivered him, as a baby, when he was born.
In the Bible, the words Grandpa, Grandma, Grandparents, Grandfather, and Grandmother are not used. So Jesus, as our Father, has His own Father; and Wisdom, as our Mother, has Her own Mother.
As the children (Jesus and Wisdom) grew and developed, they were given the responsibility to create the universe as we now know it. The whole God family were involved in the creation of the universe; but most especially the Son and Daughter manifested their creative powers in forming the planets, the angelic realm, and the various plant and animal life that exist. Finally they created earth and mankind.
John 1:1-3. In the beginning was the Word (Jesus), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him (Jesus); and without him was not any thing made that was made.
John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh (Jesus became a human being), and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
Proverbs 8:30 Then I (Wisdom) was by him (Jesus), as one brought up (raised together) (also this Hebrew word for “brought up” has the concept of training, skill, architect, or master craftsman) with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him (sister and brother in happiness together);
Job 33:4 The spirit (Wisdom the Holy Spirit) of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty (El Shaddai the God with breasts) has given me life.
Wisdom and Jesus had much joy in creating the planets, the angel family, and all things. In the future when glorified, we’ll be able to see and go over the records of the past as to how all of this unfolded and how history developed.
Of the angelic spirit family, Lucifer was the leader. He was given great privileges as the leader of the worship services above. After a period of time, this mighty angel began to indulge in jealous feelings toward Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Lucifer felt that he should be honored as equal to the Son and be involved in all the conferences and councils that the Father had with the immediate members of the God family. This was denied Lucifer; so he only had partial knowledge of God’s plans.
As Lucifer discovered that God had a special plan for earth and human beings to be made in the very image and likeness of God, he become so much more jealous. This mighty angel considered treason due to the possibility of having to bow and pay homage to not only the God family; but now humanity as well. This became almost too much for him to bear or tolerate. ,He experienced strange new feelings of fear, doubt, uncertainty. mistrust in God, pride in his own glory, and jealousy and hatred of Jesus Christ and Wisdom.
After consulting the angelic host and explaining to them his grievances, many of them joined with Lucifer in sympathy. Finally, a war broke out in heaven. Lucifer put forth his call, and a large number of angels vowed allegiance to him. One third took their chances with Lucifers idea of a better government based on better principles. Lucifer convinced his followers that he would set them free from the tyranny and galling yoke of slavery to the God family. They could live their own way and be free.
Revelation 12:1-17. And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman ( The Holy Spirit clothing God’s people and ministering to them in the Old and New Testaments) clothed with the sun (New Testament glory of Jesus and the Holy Spirit), and the moon (Old Testament glory of the law and animal sacrifices) under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars (perhaps the twelve tribes of Israel and the twelve apostles of Christ): And she being with child (baby Jesus) cried, travailing (laboring) in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon (Satan the devil), having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. (earthly governments and political powers). And his tail (power to deceive) drew the third part of the stars (angels) of heaven, and did cast them to the earth (the devil and his angels are no longer in heaven): and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. (Satan attempted to destroy Christ and the church). And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron (God’s holy law of love): and her child (Jesus) was caught up (translated and taken up to heaven) unto God, and to his throne. And the woman (church) fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore (1,260) days. And there was war in heaven: Michael (Christ) and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they (saints, the church) overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, you heavens, and you that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath (anger and hate), because he knows that he has but a short time. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time (3.5 years or 1260 days), from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth (very angry) with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant (the final church) of her seed (sons and daughters of God), which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
This whole chapter of Revelation 12 reveals the intense war going on even now between Christ and Satan. This woman in heaven represents the female image of God, the Holy Spirit; and also she represents the body of believers known as the church here on earth. The Woman above is inseparably involved with the body of believers here on earth. She gave birth to Jesus Christ through the virgin Mary and Satan tried to destroy Jesus through King Herod’s armed soldiers when they killed the babies of bethlehem. After Christ’s ministry was finished here on earth, He was taken up and translated to the throne of God. Jesus is there now interceding for the saints and all of God’s precious people. And so the war continues on to this day. The Serpent is still seeking to destroy the remnant of God’s people who keep his commandments and have the testimony of Jesus.
This rebellion was painful to bear and accept: but the Father assured the other members of the divine Family that His plan would be fulfilled. All created beings will ultimately love, obey, and worship God in the times or ages to come after the sin problem is finally laid to rest and put behind us.
So the God family continued on with the creation of human beings on earth into the very image and likeness of God, both as male and female. Men bore a resemblance to Jesus, the Son of God; and women bore a resemblance to Wisdom, the daughter of God. In form and feature they were in the image of God. Form is general shape with head, body, arms and legs. Features include masculine and feminine characteristics as in a beard, breasts, and genitalia, etc. Adam and Eve were handsome and beautiful beings full of the characteristics of love, innocence, purity of thought, and behavior. They were clothed with the glowing light of the Holy Spirit of God.
In infinite wisdom and foreknowledge, the Father above gave permission for Adam and Eve to be tested. Actually God allowed the angels to be tested also. One third of the angels fell into disobedience and sin. Revelation 12:4. The heavenly Father knows the future in exact detail. He could see ahead how the sin problem would eventually be solved; and how ultimate harmony would be restored to the universe in times or ages (eternities or eons) to come. Then all creation would worship and love their Creator. The finality of this process is reserved for the Final Judgement of all remaining sinners and their restoration from sin and death. They will have to die the second death to sin and be born again of the Spirit before being grafted in. Revelation 5:13, Chapters 20-22, Philippians 2:9-11, 1Timothy 4:9-11.
As Adam and Eve were enjoying their wonderful new planet to roam and explore at will, they were warned that there was an enemy who would attempt to destroy them. However, they had no experience with evil, death, or sin as they were so innocent and naive.
Genesis 1:1-3. In the beginning God (Elohim, Gods, plural) created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit (wind, breath) of God moved (as in brood, relax, flutter, shake) upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
The Spirit of God is involved with the creation of earth according to this verse.
Genesis 1:26,27,31. And God said, Let us make man (mankind) in our image, after our likeness (the God family are talking this over between themselves) and let them have dominion (rule) over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl (birds) of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing (animals and creatures) that creeps upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
The word, God, in Hebrew is Elohim which contains plurality, male and female. And God (Elohim) said, Let us make…here is a conversation among the God family concerning the making of human beings both male and female in the image and likeness of God, the Elohim (God family).
Genesis 2: 1-3 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host (army, numbers or multitude) of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day (Sabbath), and sanctified (set apart as holy) it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
God set the example of resting on the holy Sabbath day. The ten commandments as spoken by God, said to remember the Seventh day Sabbath to keep it holy by resting. Hebrews 4.
Adam and Eve were tested, failed, and sinned against God and had to leave the tree of life and the garden of Eden. They had children, Cain and Abel his brother, seth, and others as well as many daughters.
Now Satan, claiming to be God on earth, worked to destroy and make miserable the family of Adam and Eve. He was able to persuade Cain to become jealous of Abel and to finally kill him.
Mankind multiplied and spread out over the earth. Sin became rampant and the time came when God had to provide a way of saving mankind from extinction.
God sent a warning to Noah that the earth would be destroyed with a flood of waters. So Noah prepared a large boat, the ark, and saved himself and his family with pairs of animals during the time of the worldwide flood.
After about two thousand years since Adam and Eve, the earth was filled with people, violence, and evil of all kinds. God knew that if righteousness was to be maintained in the human family at all, then the time came when humanity needed to start fresh again. So divine permission was given to Satan and his agents to succeed in destroying the world with a flood of waters at that time. Noah and his three sons and their wives, eight souls in all, were saved in the ark, a huge ship.
After the waters dried up, Noah sent out a female dove to search for dry ground. She returned with an olive branch in her beak. She was a female dove and both the dove and the olive oil represent the Holy Spirit in the Bible. Years later the Messiah, Jesus Christ, was anointed with the Holy Spirit in the bodily shape of a dove. Matthew 3:16,17.
Genesis 8:8-11 Also he (Noah) sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated (dried up) from off the face of the ground; But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark. And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark; And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf plucked off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated (dried up) from off the earth.
Genesis 8:15, 16 And God spoke unto Noah, saying, Go forth of the ark, you, and your wife, and your sons, and your sons' wives with you.
In this scene, Noah and his family were the only human beings who survived the world wide flood. After the water dried up, he sent out the female dove to check if it was safe to venture outside yet. The images of the female dove and olive branch represent the Holy Spirit and peace.
Matthew 3:11. (John the baptist) said, I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he (Jesus) that comes after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear (carry): he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost (Spirit), and with fire:
Here John the Baptist is referring to Jesus and the Holy Spirit symbolized by fire. The Spirit is symbolized by many icons or images such as fire, water or rain, oil, dove, cloud, Person of Wisdom, fruits of the Spirit including love, joy, peace, patience, etc, Mother, Daughter, Sister, Gabrielle, Shekinah, wind, breath, air, and others.
Matthew 3:13-17 Then came Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. But John forbad (refused) him, saying, I have need to be baptized of you, and come you to me? And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer (allow) it to be so now: for thus it becomes us to fulfill all righteousness. Then he suffered (went ahead and baptized) him. And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting (landing) upon him: And lo a voice (Mother of Jesus) from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
The Spirit in the form of a dove came upon Jesus preparing Him for His public ministry. I think the voice above was from the Mother; because it seems that mankind has not yet heard the Fathers voice.
John 5:37 (Jesus said) And the Father himself, which has sent me, has borne witness (testified) of me. You have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
So the voice from heaven was most likely from Jesus Mother above; because the Fathers voice may not yet have been heard by human beings.
Jesus talked a lot about his upcoming marriage ceremony with various parables. His first miracle as the Son of God took place at a marriage ceremony in Cana of Galilee. John 2:1-11.
Christ, the Son, came to this fallen world to lead humanity back to loyalty to the Family above. He exorcised Satan and his angelic spirits out of people who wanted to be delivered from their oppression. Christ and His Sister, the Spirit Dove worked together for the uplifting of humanity from the degradation of sin and corruption. Song of Solomon 4:12, 6:9.
Jesus taught the people to pray to the Father in His name, that is in Jesus name. Jesus also taught that the Spirit would be given as a Comforter to us, and that She would glorify Jesus, and bring all things to our remembrance that would be helpful to us in our battle with evil.
Jesus promised that the Spirit would be given to the faithful believers after His resurrection from the dead and at the appointed time. His promise was fulfilled on the day of Pentecost in the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the heads of the Apostles. She came as a mighty rushing wind and in flames of holy fire and baptized the apostles with the Spirit. This is referred to as the early rain. We are promised to receive the latter rain just before the second coming of Christ to prepare us for those solemn events yet to take place. We will receive the fullness of the Spirit again in our time of need. Acts 2:1-4,16-21.
The Spirits gender is mostly female but there are a few references of the Spirit as male in the Old Testament when referring to the Father or the Son (the Spirit of God in reference to the Father or Son). The Hebrew word for Spirit is Ruach and is feminine. The greek word for Spirit is pneuma and is neuter. That means that the word itself does not have a gender specific meaning attached to it in Greek. So the New Testament Greek word for Spirit can be translated with the personal pronoun she and her. However the Bible scholars at that time rejected the Hebrew example of feminine for Spirit and instead went with the Latin word Spiritus with a masculine gender. So John 14-16 was translated with male gender words using he and him instead of she and her. Personally I believe it is more accurate and true to the Bible to refer to the Holy Spirit as she and her as the Old Testament does.
The Spirit of Wisdom has been revealed to us in the book of Proverbs, where she describes herself as the One who can give us much needed advice to deliver us from evil. Jesus commented on Her and said, ‘but Wisdom is justified (made righteous) of her children.” Matthew 11:19.
Luke 7:35 But wisdom is justified of all her children.
The parables of Jesus, the book of Revelation, and the Song of Solomon, point forward to a time when Jesus will marry His beautiful Bride, called the New Jerusalem. Although pictured as a divine City, She is also a most wonderful Person to behold. Song of Solomon 6:13.
God’s people often are referred to symbolically as being married to God and or Jesus; due to our deep devotion and worship to God. However, the body of believers are referred to as “guests” at the Marriage of Jesus. Matthew 22:10. Of course the Bride of Christ is different than the guests are during the marriage celebration. We will consider more detail on this soon.
Of the four members of the Godhead, the original Mother is the one least pointed out or mentioned in the scriptures. Although more hidden and somewhat shy, She does testify when needed. She is referred to in the Song of Solomon as the Mother who gives her only Daughter, the Prince’s Daughter, to King Solomon (Christ) on his wedding day. Song of Solomon 3:11, 6:9, 7:1.
So humanity is invited to attend heavens royal wedding ceremony and to participate in the Marriage Supper (banquet) of the Lamb (Christ). And what a joyous celebration it will be.
So after the high priestly ministry of Jesus is finished for the salvation of mankind, He will discontinue the role of High Priest. The probation of humanity will be finished at that time. That means our heavenly rewards are settled and can no longer be changed. Also we are either saved or lost at that time. There is no longer salvation work going on in the sanctuary above. So Jesus will prepare to come back to earth as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Jesus will raise the righteous dead back to life and give the surviving living saints the finishing touch of immortality. Then we will go up into the air to follow Jesus back to the heavenly paradise of God. There, we will live in heaven for a thousand years.
The wicked and bad people of earth will have all died at that time. They will slaughter each other and themselves. So the earth will be empty of living people for one thousand years. Satan and his angels will be on this planet, shut up or sealed here, for the one thousand year millennium.
In paradise, we, as guests, will attend the wedding festivities and observe the happy wedding of Jesus and His beautiful Bride. It will be a very happy occasion. We will be greatly blessed and honored to be there. Have you seen a Jewish wedding? I watched a couple of them on Youtube and I was amazed at the happy celebration they traditionally observe and do for the Bridegroom and his Bride. They dance with great joy.
After the marriage of Christ to His Beloved sister spouse, we will be able to participate in the teaching and plans of God for the final reconciliation of the rest of His lost creation. We will become the priests of God and intercede for the rest of fallen humanity as well as the fallen angelic beings. Following our successful campaign to win all the lost souls
back to loyalty to the Father, we will then change our roles to being kings and rule over the final harvest of saved souls in the many cities that will be in the earth made new. We who are victorious in this lifetime over the sin problem will rule with Jesus from His throne over the entire universe as well as the many cities that will be here in the earth made new. Revelation 1:6, 2:26, 27, 5:10. Luke 19:17.
We will intercede as priests for the wicked outside the Holy City until they die the second death and become converted. The lake of fire and brimstone is a spiritual experience that burns and torments the consciences of the lost until they finally give in to the sufferings and die to sin which is the second death. This is a spiritual experience when they die and are then born again into the image of God and His love. Then we will bring them into the Holy City, the New Jerusalem. We will become kings and rule over the final harvest of souls in the cities of the earth made new. Romans 6 explains the death to sin that all sinners must die in order to be born again and saved. John 3:1-8.
Isaiah 14:2 And the people (saints) shall take them (the converted lost outside the Holy City), and bring them to their place (inside the Holy City): and the house of Israel (all the true Christians) shall possess them in the land of the LORD for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors (former politicians, persecutors, etc).
Isaiah 2:1-4 and Micah 4:1-4 explain how during the Final Judgement of the lost, they will get converted and not learn war anymore and become neighbors to each other with harmony restored in the earth made new.
Jesus taught a parable saying…
Luke 19:12 -19. (Jesus) He said therefore, A certain nobleman (Jesus) went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds (money, gifts, and talents), and said unto them, Occupy (do your work) till I come. But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man (Holy Messiah Jesus) to reign (rule) over us. And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading (doing business). Then came the first, saying, Lord, your pound has gained ten pounds. And he said unto him, Well done, you good servant: because you have been faithful in a very little, have you authority over ten cities. And the second came, saying, Lord, your pound has gained five pounds. And he said likewise to him, Be you also over five cities.
So who will the saints rule over when Jesus sets up His kingdom on earth? Who will occupy (take up residence and live in) these cities in the earth made new? After our role as priests have been completed in intercession and winning over the final lost, then we will rule as kings on the earth. Revelation 5:10,13.
The love of God will triumph over all sin and evil. The Creator God is not a failure. He will be successful in His plan to restore all of His creation from sin and death. Then happiness and joy will flow out to all of creation from that time on and to all infinity. Death is the last enemy to be destroyed. All are made alive and restored. 1Corinthians 15:22-28.
We know in our hearts that it should be like that. We should not have to die, get sick, be separated from our loved ones or suffer. Our gut instincts reveal this to us. Hope is our motivation for life. God is good and we expect all good things. So finally, it will become reality. No more sin, evil, temptation, tears, hunger, death, separation, or suffering will ever again molest the creation of God. The universe will have learned its lesson so well that all creation will continue on in harmony and peace from that time on and always.
Nahum 1:9 What do you imagine against the LORD? he will make an utter end (sin and evil will cease to exist): affliction (suffering and sin) shall not rise up the second time.
Okay, so now we will continue to examine the scriptural support for this message and especially of the divine female image of God.
Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
The word God in the Hebrew is plural. Elohim. The word God can be translated Gods. It allows for male and female gender in the word itself. So we can understand that Adam was made in the Fathers image and Eve was made in the Mothers image.
Genesis 17:1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD (YHWH, Yahweh) appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God (El Shaddai, the breasted God); walk before me, and be you perfect.
The Almighty God in Hebrew can be translated, the Almighty breasted God. El Shaddai is one of the female members of the Godhead who appeared to Abram. This divine Being by name is mentioned 48 times in the Bible. She has breasts and has come to nourish and satisfy humanity in the service of the true Creator God.
Genesis 49:25 Even by the God of your father, who shall help you; and by the Almighty (El Shaddai the breasted One), who shall bless you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:
She has come to bring us blessings from above. We can recognize and acknowledge Her existence if we are willing to receive this knowledge. She has been content to be largely unknown in past times; but the current male and female roles of modern society are becoming so blurred and confused that She is revealing Herself more now as a way of reminding us what family is really all about. Men and women both have their distinct gender roles in society. The Bible teaches the proper gender roles of both male and female people.
The Spirit of Wisdom as a female Person is described in some detail in Proverbs chapters 1-9. She is described as resting upon the Messiah in Isaiah 11:2 as the Spirit of Wisdom.
Isaiah 11:1,2. And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse (the father of King David), and a Branch (Christ the Messiah) shall grow out of his roots (ancestors or offspring): And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
This is a prophecy of Jesus the Messiah, the son of David, the son of Jesse. The Spirit of Wisdom would rest upon Jesus. She came to him in the bodily form or shape of an innocent dove. Matthew 3:16.
Isaiah 11:6,9,10. The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid (goat); and the calf and the young lion and the fatling (young cow) together; and a little child shall lead them. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse (Christ), which shall stand for an ensign (banner of salvation) of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest (healing love, salvation, and goodness) shall be glorious.
This is the Messiahs work and mission to restore all things to perfection in due time. In the earth made new, the animals and people will be in loving harmony with no more pain or harm to anyone. This saving message is for all people, both Jew and Gentile.
The apostle Paul refers to the Spirit of Wisdom being given to the saints to know Christ better in Ephesians 1:17.
Ephesians 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom (sophia) and revelation in the knowledge of him:
The Greek work for Wisdom is Sophia and is in the feminine. or female gender.
1Corinthians 1:30 But of him (God) are you in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
Some people use this verse to prove that Jesus is Wisdom. But how can Jesus be Wisdom? Wisdom is female. Jesus is male. The Godhead is not androgynous. God is not hermaphroditic or transvestite and having both female and male characteristics. There is a Father, a Son, a Mother, and a Daughter. So then how can we rightly interpret 1Corinthians 1:30? Jesus was filled with the Spirit of Wisdom at His baptism. The heavenly Dove came into Him and anointed Him as God’s Son and the Messiah to minister to the church and the world. So Jesus imparts or gives Wisdom’s Spirit to us as a gift.
John 20:21,22. Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father has sent me, even so send I you. And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said unto them, Receive you the Holy Ghost (Spirit):
So the Wisdom that Jesus gives us is the Holy Spirit. He gave them largely of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost. She made her appearance as wind and fire and gave the gift of languages to preach the gospel to those Jews gathered there from many other countries. Acts 2:1-4.
Acts 2:1-4. And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they (the apostles) were all with one accord (in agreement) in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues (languages), as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Matthew 11:19 The Son of man (Jesus) came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous (over eating), and a winebibber (drunk), a friend of publicans (tax collectors) and sinners. But wisdom (Sophia, feminine) is justified (approved as righteous) of her children.
In this text, Jesus refers to Wisdom as a mother with children. These children approve of their mother and accept her as good and righteous. From here, we can put together pieces of the puzzle in the quest after the knowledge of the female image of God.
Proverbs 1:20 Wisdom cries without (outside); she utters her voice in the streets:
Wisdom is introduced here in Proverbs as a divine female Being who is calling out to people with a message of salvation from sin and evil for the purpose of receiving blessings from God. She is working through King Solomon to write the book of proverbs; and to give people Wisdom, knowledge, understanding, advice, councils, and proverbs. This enables people to live a righteous life approved unto God.
Proverbs 1:23 Turn you (get converted) at my reproof (words of correction): behold, I will pour out my spirit (Holy Spirit) unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
Here Wisdom equates Herself as the Spirit. Depending on the context, the Holy Spirit can be in reference to either the Spirit of the Father (the divine Mother), or the Spirit of the Son (the divine Daughter).
Proverbs 1:24 Because I (Wisdom) have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded (paid attention);
Proverbs 1:26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock (make fun of you) when your fear comes;
Here Wisdom states clearly that She can call out loudly, has hands, and can laugh at people. She is a real, feeling, thinking, talking, and interactive divine Person.
Proverbs 1:33 But whoso hearkens (listens) unto me (Wisdom) shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
So Wisdom is a benefactor to the human race. She wants to help us in our issues and problems of life. The only begotten Son, Jesus, and the only begotten Daughter, Wisdom are seeking to help us find our way back to our roots. We find our true identity in the Bible revelation of the original Father and Mother. The paradise of God is our true lasting home; and we are here temporarily being tested in a world of rebellion and sin.
Proverbs 3:13-19. Happy is the man that finds wisdom, and the man that gets understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies: and all the things you can desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honor. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retains her. The LORD (YHWH Yahweh Father and or Jesus) by wisdom (Daughter) has founded (created) the earth; by understanding (Mother) has he established the heavens.
Proverbs 4:5-11. Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve you: love her, and she shall keep you. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all your getting get understanding. Exalt her, and she shall promote you: she shall bring you to honor, when you do embrace (hug) her. She shall give to your head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to you. Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of your life shall be many. I have taught you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in right paths.
Proverbs 7:4 Say unto wisdom, You are my sister; and call understanding your kinswoman (close relative):
Wisdom wants to be closely connected with us even as a faithful Sister or as a close relative, like a grandmother, would be. Again she claims feminine gender. Will we dare call Her a liar? How can we affirm Jesus to be Wisdom when She told us that She is our sister? Jesus is our elder Brother and Wisdom is our older Sister.
Proverbs 8:7 For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
Proverbs 8:17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.
Wisdom has a mouth and lips. She loves people and can be found if we search for Her.
Proverbs 8:22 The LORD possessed me (Wisdom) in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.
Proverbs 8:24, 25 When there were no depths (oceans or bodies of water), I was brought forth (born as a baby when given birth); when there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth (born):
Proverbs 8:30, 31 Then I (Wisdom) was by him (Jesus) as one brought up (She was taught as a master workman, architect, with training and skills) with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him; Rejoicing in the habitable (place where people live) part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons (sons and daughters) of men.
These verses tell us much about Wisdom’s history and purpose. She was born before the earth was created. She had a beginning. She was a child of the LORD. She was raised and grew up in her heavenly home. and participated in the creation and activities here on earth. She loves to be close to people and desires to minister to the needs of humanity.
Proverbs 8:35, 36 For whoso finds me (Wisdom) finds life, and shall obtain favor of the LORD. But he that sins against me wrongs his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
Here is a promise of life to those who prize Wisdom and cherish Her. Also there is a warning of sin and death to those who turn away from Her in rebellion.
Jesus warns us concerning the dangers of being disrespectful in regard to the Holy Spirit. This hardening of the heart can prevent us from entering the Kingdom of God.
Matthew 12:31, 32 Wherefore I (Jesus) say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy (offensive insults, irreverence, false claims of being God and forgiving sins, etc.) against the Holy Ghost (Spirit) shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaks a word against the Son of man (Jesus), it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaks against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world (age or period of time), neither in the world (eon) to come.
This is a strong warning given to us by Jesus about sinning against the Holy Spirit of Wisdom. The word, world, as used here means age or period of time. This means that if we turn away from the Spirits pleading to make us holy, pure, and Godly; and instead go into sinful living and rejecting Gods Spirit in our lives, that we cannot be forgiven in this lifetime or during the one thousand years millennium. Our probation is closed and we are lost in sin until the final judgement. This is really the condition of all the lost and condemned. Revelation 22:11.
Exodus 13:21 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night:
Here, the Spirit, as the Shekinah glory, leads Her people to the promised land flowing with milk and honey. She is portrayed as a fire, and as a cloud in this verse. She is a very beautiful and wonderful Person, and also very powerful as a member of the Godhead.
Matthew 22:1-3 And Jesus answered and spoke unto them again by parables, and said, The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
Matthew 22:10-14 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests. And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: And he said unto him, friend, how came you in here not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen.
Here, Jesus told a parable about His own upcoming marriage. Those who participate in the marriage are called guests. So who is the mysterious Bride here? In Revelation 21, She is called New Jerusalem. Also in Galatians 4:26, She is called the Mother of us all. Also in Galatians 4:5,6 we as Christians are described as being adopted into God’s family and receiving the blessed Spirit in our hearts and She cries from within us, “Abba, Father.”
Jesus talked a lot about His marriage. He was excited about it. And He wants us to be able to join Him in His marriage celebration. As His chosen people, we are adopted into the royal family of God.
Ephesians 1:5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
Ephesians 2:18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
The one Spirit is either Wisdom or her Mother and she prepares us to meet with our Father above.
Ephesians 4:4-7. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
The oneness of God is here described as the oneness of a family unit. For example, Adam and Eve are joined together as one flesh (body). Genesis 2:24. Jesus taught and prayed saying, My Father and I are one.
John 17:21-23. (Jesus prays) That they (my people) all may be one; as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that you have sent me. And the glory which you gave me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and you in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that you have sent me, and have loved them, as you have loved me.
The royal family above are referred to in the following verse.
Ephesians 3:14,15. For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
Now we’ll look at another wedding parable of Jesus.
Matthew 25:1-13 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened (compared) unto ten virgins (Christians or the church), which took their lamps (Bibles), and went forth to meet the bridegroom (Jesus). And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil (Holy Spirit) with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried (delayed), they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go you out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest (unless) there be not enough for us and you: but go you rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily (truly) I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man (Jesus) comes.
Jesus will come unexpectedly for many Christians professing the faith. They have their Bibles; but they did not receive the Spirit of Wisdom to help them overcome their sinfulness, and prepare to dwell with the God family above. Again, the Christian virgins awaiting the coming of the Bridegroom and not considered here to be the Bride. Who is the Bride? As we continue our research, the answer will become more clearly defined.
Galatians 4:4-7 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption (we are adopted into God’s family) of sons. And because you are sons (and daughters), God has sent forth the Spirit of his Son (the Wisdom of Jesus) into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore you are no more a servant (slave or common worker), but a son (family member, son or daughter); and if a son, then an heir (legally entitled to inherit our heavenly home and receive our rewards) of God through Christ.
Galatians 4:22-31 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid (slave woman, a servant), the other by a free woman (his beloved wife). But he (Ishmael) who was of the bondwoman (Hagar) was born after the flesh (natural bodily way); but he of the free woman was by promise (God’s promised a son even in their old age). Which things are an allegory (parable story): for these are the two covenants (agreements, contracts, testaments); the one from the mount Sinai (where the Mosaic law was given), which genders (encourages) to bondage (slavery), which is Agar (Hagar). For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answers to Jerusalem (the earthly city in Pauls day) which now is, and is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem which is above (up in heaven) is free, which is the mother (She has adopted us into the royal family) of us all. For it is written, Rejoice, you barren (infertile) that bears not (cannot get pregnant); break forth and cry, you that travails not (does not labor in giving birth): for the desolate has many more children than she which has an husband. (Sarah was desolate without children for years. But later she rejoiced because the promise of God came to pass with Issac and his descendants). Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise. But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now. (Ismael persecuted Issac; and the wicked have persecuted Christians for thousands of years). Nevertheless what says the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the free woman. So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.
This is a mystery of the plan of salvation and how it relates to the law given at Mount Sinai and the Old and New Testaments. Again, we are adopted into the family of God by faith in Jesus Christ. Our heavenly Mother is called the New Jerusalem and She is called the Bride of Christ.
Revelation 3:12 Him that over comes (overcomes sin) will I make a pillar in the temple (paradise) of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God (referring to the Father), and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem (referring to our Mother), which comes down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name (Jesus new name).
This verse mentions three names referring to the Godhead that are placed upon the overcoming saints. One of these is named New Jerusalem instead of the Holy Spirit. The New Jerusalem represents the wife of Jesus Christ. The word God (Theos), in greek, is plural and can be male and or female. So Theos, God, can be translated into english as Gods. So Gods name can include the Father and the Mother. New Jerusalem implies the divine Daughter; and of course, Jesus new name refers directly to Christ Himself. This agrees with Revelation 22:4.
Revelation 22:4 And they (the saved) shall see his (Gods) face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
We have the family name on our foreheads. We are sealed into the family from above. We will so blessed and happy. Praise God.
Revelation 19:7-9. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him (Christ): for the marriage of the Lamb (Christ) is come, and his wife has made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed (clothed) in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he said unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
Notice how well hidden the Bride is here. This wedding announcement is mostly pointing to Jesus and the Bride is shy and out of sight. But we will find Her a little later on. She is closely identified with God’s people though, and clothes herself with their righteous behavior and good works. She’s a very caring, loving Person, and so warm and friendly.
Revelation 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned (clothed) for her husband.
I think this beautiful city represented as the Bride must be the most wonderful sight to behold and see. The New Jerusalem is both a physical, literal city; and also a divine Mother who has adopted us into the heavenly family. She really comes out into the open in the love song of Solomon.
Revelation 21:9-11 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come here, I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
Again She is both a literal city and a beautiful Person as the Daughter of God. She is breathtakingly beautiful.
Revelation 22:17 And the Spirit (Mother, the Father’s wife) and the bride (Wisdom, the wife of Jesus) say, Come. And let him that hears say, Come. And let him that is athirst (thirsty) come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
The Spirit is the Mother and the Bride is the Daughter. They are calling us to receive the salvation freely given in Jesus sacrifice for us. We are freely justified and proclaimed saved and righteous through the sacrificial death of Christ. Now we must claim our inheritance by faith. It is the gift of God; but we must receive this gift and apply it to ourselves. This is done by repentance from our sins; and by obedience to God’s commandments. We are most joyfully received into glory by our loving heavenly Parents above.
The marriage of Christ and His bride and their flirtatious, courtship, and relationship is most profoundly revealed in the Song of Songs which is Solomon’s. This is a song, a beautiful romantic poem, and a drama of the courtship of King Solomon and His Shulamite Bride, who is the Princes Daughter. There is a love story revealed here with a mystery. There may have been some literal applications of this song when it was first introduced centuries ago by King Solomon. Now it’s mainly about a heavenly reunion of the sacred Sister Spouse and of King Solomon who is represented by Jesus and Wisdom.
Brother and sister, husband and wife, and twins is a mysterious and intriguing concept that has been counterfeited by false deities and stories from the past. For example, in Greek mythology, Zeus and Hera were brother and sister as well as husband and wife. In Egyptian mythology, Shu and Tefnut are brother and sister and had children. There are many others also.
This is considered incest and the law of Moses forbade it. In the Bible there have been exceptions to this especially earlier in the history of the human race. For example Abraham married his half sister. Also all of Adam and Eve’s children, especially at first, were married as brother and sister. After Cain killed Abel his brother, he took one of his sisters as wife and relocated to another area.
Today, this is not a good practice due to the strong possibility of birth defects in the children. It is still done at times, although it’s illegal in some countries.
Leviticus 20:17 And if a man shall take his sister, his father's daughter, or his mother's daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his nakedness; it is a wicked thing; and they shall be cut off in the sight of their people: he hath uncovered his sister's nakedness; he shall bear his iniquity.
This was the law of Moses. And here is Abrahams situation.
Genesis 20:10-13. And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What saw you, that you have done this thing? And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the fear of God is not in this place; and they will kill me for my wife's sake. And yet indeed she is my sister; she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife. And it came to pass, when God caused me to wander from my father's house, that I said unto her, This is your kindness which you shalt show unto me; at every place where we shall come, say of me, He is my brother.
We know God greatly blessed Abraham and Sarah in so many ways. Adam and Eve were made perfect. Their DNA and genetic code were perfect. Their children could intermarry and suffer no harm prior to sin. After some generations, God commanded the practice of brother and sister marriages to stop. The threat of birth and genetic defects had become too great to ignore. God always desires the best for His children and He gives laws to perpetuate happiness, holiness, and excellent health to those who obey them.
Jesus and Wisdom, being brother and sister and later becoming husband and wife, would not be considered incest or sin due to the divine perfection. Their DNA and genetic code are perfect.
Now we will consider the greatest love story ever told or sung about from Gods perspective. The Song of Songs has long been a mystery to the church of God and even questioned for being included in the sacred canon of scripture. However, God has over ruled so that this precious love story would also be considered the Word of God. I’ve read many various interpretations for this song; but the one I present here is unique and little known. This is a precious portion of scripture that enables all the pieces of the puzzle to be put together in a beautiful picture of the love of God and His story. A love song that is sung about the marriage of Jesus Christ and His bride.
Song Of Solomon 1:1-4 The song of songs (the number one greatest of all songs), which is Solomon’s (the author who was inspired to write it and compose it). Let him (Jesus) kiss me (Bride) with the kisses of his mouth (very intimate relationship): for your love (kindness) is better than wine (sweet grape juice). Because of the savor (delightful smell) of your good ointments (perfumes) your name is as ointment poured forth, therefore do the virgins (God’s devoted people) love you. Draw (attract) me, we (I and all of God’s children) will run after you: the king has brought me into his chambers (palace): we will be glad and rejoice in you, we will remember your love more than wine: the upright (God’s people) love you.
In the opening verses of this lovely romantic song, the Bride is telling her story of Her infatuation with the King. Her love for him is more intoxicating and addictive than wine. She is love sick or almost drunk with love for her King. The Kings reputation is so good that the good, righteous, and pure people love, trust, and obey Him. The Queen says that the King has brought her into his chambers (His palace). Here the marriage celebration begins with the righteous in attendance. We will be so blessed to behold the excitement of the King and Queen as they unite finally in the heavenly marriage ceremonies.
Could it be that Jesus and Wisdom have maintained their own virginity for thousands of years and just awaiting the moment when they will finally be united in holy matrimony to fully give themselves to each other? Why have they waited for thousands of years? What has held them back from coming together before now? It is the sin problem. They are devoted to curing the sin problem and getting all of their children back before consummating the marriage ceremonies. They have sacrificed themselves this primal pleasure until the will of the Father is completed and all the universe is finally re-united. This time is coming. All will be revealed when the time is right for it.
Song Of Solomon 1:5, 6 I am black, but comely (beautiful), O you daughters (God’s people) of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon. Look not upon me, because I am black (don’t despise me or look down upon me), because the sun hath looked upon me: my mother's children (the rebellious angels and sinful people) were angry with me; they made me the keeper of the vineyards (I’ve been so busy and working so hard for the salvation of mankind); but mine own vineyard (my place and my own plans) have I not kept.
The Shulamite Queen now goes back into historical time to reveal some disturbances of the past that still haunt her somewhat. She explores past traumatic experiences where she’s worked hard and denied Herself for the sake and welfare of others. She was misunderstood by her Mother’s adopted children and the rebellious ones. They refused to accept her, denied her, and ridiculed her for a long time.
Song Of Solomon 1:12-17 While the king (Jesus) sits at his table, my (the Bride) spikenard (herbal perfume) sends forth the smell thereof. A bundle of myrrh (a delightful comparison) is my well-beloved unto me; he shall lie all night between my breasts. My beloved (the King) is unto me as a cluster of camphire in the vineyards of Engedi. (The King now speaks) Behold, you (the Bride) are fair (beautiful), my love; behold, you are fair; you have doves' eyes. Behold, you are fair, my beloved, yea, pleasant: also our bed is green. The beams of our house are cedar, and our rafters of fir (our home is prepared and ready).
She tells of their special relationship whether at the table or in the bedroom. She loves the enticing smells of the herbs. They speak words of kindness to each other and comfort one another. The King complements Her by saying how beautiful she is.
Song Of Solomon 2:1-7 I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys. As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.
She reveals how beautiful and important she is and then reminds us of her sufferings among the people and how their words and actions are as painful thorns in her side that hurt her delicate feelings.
As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved (Christ) among the (people) sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste. He brought me to the banqueting house (marriage supper occasion), and his banner over me was love. Stay me with flagons (raisin cakes), comfort me with apples: for I am sick of love (lovesick). His left hand is under my head, and his right hand does embrace me. I charge you, O you daughters of Jerusalem, by the roes (gazelles), and by the hinds (female deer, doe) of the field, that ye stir not up, nor awake my love (cause my passion to become uncontrollable), till he please.
Again, the Queen compares Her King with other personalities and expresses her devoted love for Him. The banqueting house and banner are word expressions of their marriage celebration. She is delirious and lovesick with her Man. She tells her story to the daughters of Jerusalem. These are the people who love and serve God and are also called virgins in this love song.
Song Of Solomon 2:15 Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil (damage) the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.
Capture those foxes because they damage the Lords creation through sinful practices. The foxes represent the wicked fallen angels and rebellious humanity. They destroy the earth by poisoning it and wasting its rich resources. The sin problem must be dealt with by the King.
Song Of Solomon 3:1-4 By night on my bed I sought (looked for) him whom my soul loves: I sought him, but I found him not. I will rise now, and go about the city in the streets, and in the broad ways I will seek him whom my soul loves: I sought him, but I found him not. The watchmen that go about the city found me: to whom I said, Saw you him whom my soul loves? It was but a little that I passed from them, but I found him whom my soul loves: I held him, and would not let him go, until I had brought him into my mother's house, and into the chamber of her that conceived (gave me birth) me.
This aggressive, bold and loving Woman will not give up easily. She will do whatever it takes to be with her Man. She manages to bring him to Her Mothers house.
Song Of Solomon 3:6-11 Who is this that comes out of the wilderness like pillars of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense, with all powders of the merchant? Behold his bed (the resting place or throne), which is Solomon's; threescore (60) valiant (brave) men (body guards) are about it, of the valiant of Israel. They all hold swords, being expert in war: every man has his sword (Word of God) upon his thigh (scabbard) because of fear in the night. King Solomon made himself a chariot (moving throne) of the wood of Lebanon. He made the pillars thereof of silver, the bottom thereof of gold, the covering of it of purple, the midst thereof being paved with love, for the daughters of Jerusalem (Gods adopted children). Go forth, O ye daughters of Zion, and behold king Solomon with the crown wherewith his mother (the Fathers Wife) crowned him in the day of his espousals (marriage), and in the day of the gladness of his heart (Marriage supper of the Lamb).
King Solomon arrives in His royal chariot. It’s like a throne with wheels thats mobile or transportable. He is wearing the crown his mother placed on his head for the day of his marriage and his heart is overflowing with happiness. Human language is altogether too feeble to describe the heavenly delights. Literal King Solomon had hundreds of marriages. This special marriage ceremony portrayed in the Song of Solomon has a spiritual application to the marriage that Jesus kept talking about in his parables.
Song Of Solomon 4:9-12 You have ravished (filled me with joy) my (Jesus) heart, my sister, my spouse (Wife, Bride); you have ravished my heart with one of your eyes, with one chain of thy neck. How fair (beautiful) is your love, my sister, my spouse! how much better is your love than wine! and the smell of your ointments than all spices! Your lips (kisses), O my spouse, drop as the honeycomb (tastes sweet as honey): honey and milk are under your tongue; and the smell of your garments (clothing) is like the smell (smells so good) of Lebanon. A garden inclosed (virgin) is my sister, my spouse; a spring shut up, a fountain sealed.
The King describes his love for his virgin Bride. He reveals the close relationship he has with her. She is his sister and his spouse or wife. They grew up together; but somehow they separated to some extent to take care of business with the sin problem. Only now are they coming back together to celebrate their marriage and love for each other. This is what Jesus was talking about and described as the marriage supper of the Lamb.
Song Of Solomon 6:4 You are beautiful, O my love, as Tirzah, comely (beautiful) as Jerusalem (another name for the Bride, the Lambs wife, in Revelation 21), terrible (majestic and inspiring) as an army with banners.
The King compares the Queen to the beauty of Jerusalem. This great city is also called the Bride of Christ in Revelation 21:2, 9-11.
Song Of Solomon 6:8,9. There are threescore (60) queens, and fourscore (80) concubines, and virgins without number (this is referring to God’s people). (Jesus the King says) My dove (Bride), my undefiled is but one (only begotten); she is the only one of her mother (the Fathers wife), she is the choice one of her that bare (gave birth to) her. The daughters (Gods people) saw her, and blessed her; yea, the queens and the concubines, and they praised her.
The King calls His Bride, “My Dove.” This expression of Dove is a symbol of the Holy Spirit also known as Wisdom. The King also describes His beautiful Bride as having “Doves eyes.” Song of Solomon 4:1.
Here, the Queen Shulamite is mentioned as the only one of Her Mother. She is the only begotten daughter of Her Mother. The daughters, queens, and concubines are a reference to the adopted people of God, the saints and angels and their adoration of the heavenly Queen and King of the universe. We are called virgins or bridesmaids as we await the Bridegroom’s coming in the parable of Matthew 25:1-13. Also we are called guests to the marriage in Matthew 22:10,11.
This verse describes the sacred relationship between the Holy Mother and her only beloved Daughter and her only Son. As fraternal twins, Jesus is called the firstborn of every creature. Song of Solomon 8:1.
Colossians 1:15 Who (Jesus) is the image of the invisible God (the Father), the firstborn (Jesus was born first) of every creature:
Jesus and His Sister were together from the beginning. Proverbs 8:22-25,30,31. They grew up together. Jesus beginning. Revelation 3:14. Song Of Solomon 6:13 Return, return, O Shulamite; return, return, that we may look upon you. What will you see in the Shulamite? As it were the company of two armies.
The two companies or armies are the angels and the saints (God’s people in heaven) during the marriage of Christ with His wife in paradise. They are excited to participate in the festivities with singing, dancing and to see the Shulamite Bride; and to watch Her dancing with joy during the marriage celebration. The angels and people are calling out to the Bride, “Return return that we may look upon You.” They are enraptured with Her adorable beauty and loveliness. They want to see and watch her graceful movements. Have you observed the traditional Jewish dancing during the marriage ceremonies? It’s quite impressive and reminds me of the heavenly marriage celebration that is prophesied to come. Mahanaim is the place where Jacob saw the angels and gave it this name and it means two companies in the Hebrew. Genesis 32:1,2.
Song Of Solomon 7:1 How beautiful are your feet with shoes, O prince's daughter! The joints of your thighs (hips) are like jewels, the work of the hands of a cunning (wise) workman.
Here the Shulamite Queen is called the Prince’s Daughter and she has the most beautiful feet with shoes. This reminds me of Cinderella and her special shoes. Sometimes these famous old stories are as a shadow of the greatest story ever told and revealed in the Bible.
Song Of Solomon 7:10-13 I (the Bride) am my beloved's, and his desire is toward me. Come, my beloved (The Bride is calling her husband, King), let us go forth into the field; let us lodge (stay in a home or place) in the villages. Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see if the vine flourish, whether the tender grape appear, and the pomegranates bud forth (spring time) there will I give you my loves (Her passion is revealed). The mandrakes (a fertility herb) give a smell, and at our gates are all manner of pleasant fruits, new and old, which I have laid up (reserved) for you, O my beloved.
Here the beautiful Queen is suggesting to the King that they go to a special place where she is willing to give Him her body in very intimate ways.
Song Of Solomon 8:1,2 (The Queen says) O that you were as my brother, that sucked the breasts of my mother! when I should find you without (outside), I would kiss you; yes, I should not be despised (looked down upon). I would lead you, and bring you into my mother's house, who would instruct me I would cause you to drink of spiced wine of the juice of my pomegranate.
They are brother and sister and most likely fraternal twins. The only begotten Son and the only begotten Daughter of God grew up together. The Queen is outspoken in this song, bold and open about her love and commitment to the King. She is still concerned about how others will think of her and maybe despise her.
Song Of Solomon 8:5 (Perhaps the Father is speaking here). Who is this that comes up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved (the Bride leaning upon Her King)? I raised you up under the apple tree: there your mother (heavenly Mother) brought you forth: there she brought you forth that bare you (gave you birth).
This is a reminder of their birth many years ago. The speaker here could be the heavenly Father reminding his daughter of her childhood.
The song finishes with a happy ending. And they lived happily ever after.
Although this song is essentially about the Marriage supper of the Lamb (Christ) and His beautiful (Dove) Bride, it goes into some details of their past experiences and sufferings for each other. Also it may have some applications to the literal King Solomon of Jerusalem so many years ago as he wrote this song under inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
From this point on, we’ll consider various portions of scripture in light of what we have already studied. We’ll check out a few supportive texts and so on.
In Psalm 45, the Queen and the Messiah are again revealed in this wonderful and touching hymn. Some of the most incredible Bible doctrine is discovered in a song.
Psa 45:1 To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim (lilies), for the sons of Korah, Maschil, A Song of loves. (This is the introduction and title of the song in the King James Version).
Psalm 45:1-17. (the author here may have been King David under the Spirits inspiration) My heart (mind, emotions, or inner being) is inditing (overflowing like a fountain, meditating on) a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching (concerning) the king (Jesus): my tongue is the pen of a ready writer. You (Jesus) are fairer (more beautiful) than the children of men: grace is poured into your lips: therefore God (the Father) has blessed you for ever (continuously). Gird (take up) your sword (the Word of God is sharper than a sword Hebrews 4:12) upon your thigh, O most mighty, with your glory and your majesty. And in your majesty ride prosperously (the glorious coming of Christ to this earth) because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and your right hand shall teach you terrible (awesome) things. Your arrows (spiritual weapons that are powerful to convert the soul) are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; whereby the people fall (die physically and or spiritually) under you. Your throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre (right to rule) of your kingdom is a right sceptre. You love righteousness, and hate wickedness: therefore God (Elohim, Gods, Godhead family), Your God, has anointed you (Jesus) with the oil (Holy Spirit in shape of the Dove) of gladness above your fellows. (Jesus will be happier than everyone else). All your garments (clothing) smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made you glad. Kings' daughters (representative converts including the church) were among your honorable women (these women reflect the beautiful image of righteousness revealed in their heavenly Mother and the character of Christ): upon your right hand did stand the queen (Messiahs wife, the Bride of Christ) in gold of Ophir. Hearken (listen), O daughter, and consider, and incline your ear; forget also your own people, and your father's house; So shall the king greatly desire your beauty: for he is your Lord; and worship you him. And the daughter of Tyre (more gentile converts) shall be there with a gift; even the rich among the people shall intreat your favor. The king's (the heavenly Fathers) daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold. She (the Bride) shall be brought unto the king (Jesus) in raiment (clothing) of needlework: the virgins (the church) her companions that follow her shall be brought unto you. With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king's palace. Instead of your father (the heavenly Father) shall be your children, whom you may make princes (this is our glorious destiny as ransomed human beings) in all the earth. I will make your name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise you for ever and ever (always and continuously).
This beautiful love song is about Jesus and His wonderful Bride, the Queen. The King successfully goes out against His enemies and gets them converted in due time. Then He joins His beautiful Bride. The sword and arrows represent the Word and Spirit of God in saving the lost. The people fall under Him in battle as they convert to the side of righteousness. Later on then, all the saved people shall praise Jesus and the Father from that time onward to infinity. Sin and death will be utterly defeated and cease to exist.
Next we’ll consider this set of passages in the prophet Jeremiah about a male and a female LORD Our Righteousness. I believe these Lords are referring to Jesus and Wisdom.
Jeremiah 23:5,6. Behold, the days come, says the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King (Jesus the Messiah) shall reign (rule) and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he (Jesus male gender) shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
Jeremiah 33:15,16. In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he (Jesus the Messiah) shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land. In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she (Wisdom female gender) shall be called, The LORD our righteousness.
Here is a male and a female “Lord our Righteousness”! Our heavenly parents are revealed again. Many times the translators would hide the female image references; but in this case it was left intact.
El Shaddai, the Almighty breasted One, reveals Herself to Abram. She blessed ninety year old Sarah’s womb so that she became pregnant with the promised son.
Genesis 17:1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD (YHWH or Yahweh) appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; (El shaddai - the God with breasts) walk before me, and be you perfect.
The hebrew word, Shad, means breast. She will supply all their needs as a mother does for a child. She nourishes and satisfies with blessings as a sustainer. The name El Shaddai occurs seven times. The word Shaddai occurs 48 times. Here’s another reference.
Genesis 49:25 Even by the God of your father, who shall help you; and by the Almighty (the God with breasts), who shall bless you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb (She will cause you to be fertile and have healthy babies):
Now we’ll consider some names for the Lord our righteousness both male and female. Jesus and Wisdom, Michael the archangel (Christ) and Gabrielle (another name for Wisdom), Father and Mother, Messiah and Shekinah, Lamb and Dove, Melchizedek and New Jerusalem, Son of God and Daughter of Zion, Bridegroom and Bride, Husband and Wife, Brother and Sister, Lion and Dove, Prince and Princess, Captain of the Lords host and the Angel of his presence, God and Goddess, are some of the names given to this divine pair from paradise. Jesus is the only begotten Son of His Father and Wisdom is the only begotten Daughter of Her Mother.
I think Gabrielle is a female Being. Many artists in the past have portrayed her as a female angelic being with wings. She’s seen either helping the prophet Daniel or visiting Mary to encourage her to give birth to Christ or helping someone else in need.
Luke 1:19. And the angel answering said unto him, I am ( I Am has been used as a name for God, Exodus 3:14) Gabriel (the female archangel who complements Michael as they work together for the salvation of mankind), that stand (She stands instead of bowing down) in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto you, and to show you these glad tidings.
Also, the description of Gabriella in Daniel 10:5,6 is similar to the one given in Revelation 1:12-16 of Jesus. Jesus has a golden girdle up to the teats or upper chest. Gabreilla’s golden girdle covers only her hips and waist probably so it doesn’t interfere with her breasts. Her body is like beryl, a light green color. The text uses masculine personal pronouns for Gabriel; but I’m not sure if that is original or possibly tampered with.
Michael and Gabrielle work closely together for the salvation and uplifting of mankind. Daniel 10:21. She is alluded to in Revelation also. Revelation 1:1 and other places.
The New Testament Greek word for Spirit is Pneuma and is neuter with no personal pronouns attached. The Old Testament Word for Spirit in Hebrew is Ruach and is Feminine in gender. The Holy Spirit is almost always female gender and grammar in the Old Testament Hebrew and Aramaic languages. There are only a few places where the Spirit is translated male and then it is referring to Christ or the Father. The Greek New Testament does not include personal pronouns with the word Spirit. So Spirit is neuter in the New Testament. However the translators decided to place the personal pronoun he in reference to the Spirit which contradicts the Old Testament Hebrew pronoun she or her. Many of the translators during the dark ages were from the Roman Catholic persuasion or at least under pressure from that church empire. Also the Latin language word for Spirit or Spiritus has a masculine or male pronoun he or him. Rome uses the Latin language.
This knowledge enables us to realize that the verses in John 14: 16, 17, 26 and John 15: 26 as well as John 16: 7,8,13, and verse 14 can all be translated either without personal pronouns or can be justifiably translated as she and her instead of with he and him. The oldest Syriac Bible found used female pronouns in John 14; but later the words she and her was changed to he and him to match the other existing codex Bible texts. Sad isn’t it?
Why can’t translators be perfectly honest? Oh well, even now, if you have a lecture translated into another language orally, many times the translator takes liberties to translate according to his or her own judgment. So let’s re- translate these verses and notice the difference.
John 14:16,17. And I (Jesus) will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he (she) may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees her not, neither knows her: but you know her; for she dwells with you, and shall be in you.
John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, she shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
John 16:13,14. However when she, the Spirit of truth, is come, she will guide you into all truth: for she shall not speak of herself; but whatsoever she shall hear, that shall she speak: and she will show you things to come. She shall glorify me: for she shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you.
Knowledge of the Godhead family is needed now in our age due to false alternative lifestyles and same sex marriage distortions becoming rampant in modern society. People are increasingly confused about what normal and right is. The Bible gives the true and blessed pathway of right doing.
The heavenly Mother and Daughter serve different roles than the Father and the Son. They stay more in the background and are somewhat hidden. The divine females are more shy and submissive. They are extremely powerful but are respectful and submissive to the males in the Godhead. The family above are the example and role model for the family below here on earth.
1Peter 3:5-7. For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned (clothed) themselves, being in subjection (submission and obedience) unto their own husbands: Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters you are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement. Likewise, you husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs (inheriting) together of the grace of life (hope of immortality in the kingdom of God); that your prayers be not hindered (obstructed).
Godly men, with their older son’s, may go out to battle and leave their wives and children safely at home. The Godhead family also give open knowledge of the Father and the Son; but the wife and daughter are kept more out of sight. The Mother and Daughter serve more supportive roles in the family above.
Scribes and Bible copyists have omitted some words and letters from the Bible and changed it in some areas making the truth more difficult to discover. However, with diligent research, there is still sufficient evidence to support the truth revealed in the Word of God as regarding the royal family from above.
The daughter is revealed in different ways in the Bible. She is called a virgin, the daughter of Zion or Jerusalem.
2Kings 19:20-22. Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, Thus says the LORD God of Israel, That which you has prayed to me against Sennacherib king of Assyria I have heard. This is the word that the LORD has spoken concerning him; The virgin the daughter of Zion has despised you, and laughed you to scorn (making fun of you); the daughter of Jerusalem has shaken her head at you. Whom have you reproached (mocked and looked down upon?) and blasphemed (irreverence and disrespect)? and against whom have you exalted (lifted up high) your voice, and lifted up your eyes on high? even against the Holy One of Israel.
Here, the Daughter of Zion or Daughter of Jerusalem is identifying herself with her people, the faithful believing Jews or Hebrews, in that time and day. She is called a virgin daughter who can laugh and shake her head. This is another name or reference to the sister spouse or bride of Christ and is also known as Wisdom. Proverbs 1:23-26.
Zechariah 9:9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, your King comes unto you: he is just (righteous), and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass (donkey), and upon a colt the foal of an ass (a young donkey).
Here, the Daughter of Zion and Jerusalem is told to shout and be happy because Her King (Jesus Christ) is coming to bring salvation to their people. As Gods children, we are adopted into the royal family above by faith in Jesus Christ for the remission of sins.
Exodus 20:12 Honor your father and your mother: that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God gives you.
I believe this verse from the ten commandments can have reference to both our physical parents and our spiritual parents from above. We have our family above and our family here on earth.
We have another great mystery in the seven Spirits of God. This is brought our in Revelations book of symbols.
Revelation 1:4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;
Revelation 4:5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
Revelation 5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts (beings), and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb (Christ) as it had been slain (murdered, put to death), having seven horns (symbolize complete power) and seven eyes (symbolize seeing completely), which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth ( a work of ministry for Gods people).
Revelation 3:1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things says he (Jesus) that has the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know your works, that you have a name that you live, and are dead.
These four verses reveal the seven Spirits of God. They are portrayed in Revelation as seven lamps of fire burning before Gods throne, also as the eyes of Jesus, and they are sent into all the world. Jesus gives us, as members of His church, the gift of the Holy Spirit. I believe the seven Spirits of God have reference to the holy work that is carried forward by the Holy Spirit revealed as the Mother and the Daughter. The Holy Spirit comes into us and enables us to obey the holy commandments of God and to live out a righteous life by faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus is our righteousness.
In the ancient sanctuary built by Moses and the people, there was a golden, seven branched, candlestick that represented the ministry of the Holy Spirit to the church in both the Old and New Testaments. The Spirit as the Mother and Daughter go forth to minister to the people represented by the seven branched golden candlestick in the earthly tabernacle, and also revealed in the heavenly lamps of fire or seven golden candlesticks referred to in the book of Revelation.
The Holy Spirit was given to Jesus without measure in the bodily form of a dove. The Spirit is given to humanity or individual Christians as a small portion or as needed. She has this ability to divide Herself up into multiple portions of Herself. The Seven Spirits of God are sent forth into all the earth. She is being gradually withdrawn from the earth in modern times due to the sinful rebellion of humanity. We await the Latter Rain and the seal of God to prepare us for our final labors and translation up to paradise
when our work is completed.
Also the seven Spirits were poured into Christ the Messiah when he was anointed after his baptism in water by John the baptist. This is described in Isaiah 2 and seven manifestations can be counted.
There is literal physical wind and there is spiritual wind which is the Holy Spirit of God. The spiritual wind of the Holy Spirit is intelligent, has feelings, and has a body; but She has the capacity to share Her Spirit wind to any or all of Gods creatures and to inhabit their body temples.
1Corinthians 12:6-9-11. And there are diversities (various) of operations, but it is the same God which works all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit (benefit) withal. For to one is given by the Spirit
1. the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
2. To another faith by the same Spirit;
3. to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
4. To another the working of miracles;
5. to another prophecy;
6. to another discerning of spirits;
7. to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
But all these work that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he (she) will.
Here is another listing of approximately seven manifestations of the Spirit.
1Corinthians 12:28-30. And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, (fourth) after that miracles, (fifth) then gifts of healings, (sixth) helps, governments, (seven) diversities of tongues.
1. Are all apostles?
2. are all prophets?
3. are all teachers?
4. are all workers of miracles?
5. Have all the gifts of healing?
6. do all speak with tongues?
7. do all interpret?
These are more examples of the manifestation of the seven Spirits of God. Also in Zechariah 3 and 4 are described the seven eyes of the Lord in a stone (Christ the foundation), the seven golden candlesticks, the Holy Spirit, and how the seven eyes of the Lord go throughout the whole earth. Yes, it’s a mystery that we can only partly comprehend at this time.
1Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond (slave) or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
Yes, the seven Spirits of God are also considered one Spirit, even as Jesus prayed saying that the Father and the Son are one and the church also is to be one with the Lord. John 17:21. We are destined to be one happy family in the near future when all is restored.
Philippians 2:1 If there be therefore any consolation (exhortation) in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship (the Holy Spirit is a communicating, inter-relational, and socially interactive Being) of the Spirit, if any bowels (inner pity and tenderness) and mercies,
2Corinthians 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion (comfort and communication) of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.
Romans 8:15,16. For you have not received the spirit of bondage (slavery) again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption (adopted into the royal family above), whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself (Herself) bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helps our infirmities (weakness, and sickness): for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself (Herself) makes intercession for us with groanings (language that is beyond our understanding but very effective) which cannot be uttered (Her intercessions are not repeatable in human language).
She takes our needs to the Father for a solution and remedy for our needs and current situations. She prays and intercedes for us even as Jesus does.
1Corinthians 6:19 What? know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which you have of God, and you are not your own?
If we invite her in, She will take up residence within us to bless and guide our lives according to the will of God. She is pure and holy and will help and enable us to purify our lives from unclean practices and ways.
John 3:4-8. Nicodemus said unto him (Jesus), How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily (truly), I say unto you, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh (human body); and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto you, You must be born again. The wind blows where it listeth (wants to go) and you hear the sound thereof, but can not tell where it comes, and where it goes: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and you shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Acts 2:1-4. And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they (the apostles of the early church) were all with one accord (agreement) in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues (languages), as the Spirit gave them utterance.
This was a manifestation of the early rain of the Holy Spirit that was poured out upon the early church giving her power to preach the gospel to the world. Soon we hope to receive the latter rain of the Holy Spirit to prepare us for our final work and sealing us for translation up to paradise when Christ shall return here to take us home.
Hosea 6:3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain (Holy Spirit), as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
The rain brings to maturity the crops in the field; and the Spirit brings us to maturity in the Lord. We will ripen up and develop in our reflection of the character of God and Christ. We will shine with the glory of God upon us.
Galatians 5:22-25. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering (patience), gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts (desires). If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
Ephesians 4:30 And grieve (sadden or disappoint) not the holy Spirit of God, whereby you are sealed unto the day of redemption.
Yes, the Holy Spirit has feelings and emotions and her own unique personality. Notice how the Spirit worked in Old Testament times.
Exodus 31:1-12. And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah: And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, To devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, And in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship. And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that are wise hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded you; The tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the testimony, and the mercy seat that is thereupon, and all the furniture of the tabernacle, And the table and his furniture, and the pure candlestick with all his furniture, and the altar of incense, And the altar of burnt offering with all his furniture, and the laver and his foot, And the cloths of service, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest's office, And the anointing oil, and sweet incense for the holy place: according to all that I have commanded you shall they do.
Exodus 39:42,43. According to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so the children of Israel made all the work. And Moses did look upon all the work, and, behold, they had done it as the LORD had commanded, even so had they done it: and Moses blessed them.
The Spirit of wisdom came on the men who built the ancient sanctuary of old. We need the Holy Spirit of wisdom in our lives today so that we can live out the will of God in our body temples.
Numbers 11:24-29. And Moses went out, and told the people the words of the LORD, and gathered the seventy men of the elders of the people, and set them round about the tabernacle (tent or sanctuary). And the LORD came down in a cloud, and spoke unto him (Moses), and took of the spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the seventy elders: and it came to pass, that, when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease. But there remained two of the men in the camp, the name of the one was Eldad, and the name of the other Medad: and the spirit rested upon them; and they were of them that were written, but went not out unto the tabernacle: and they prophesied in the camp. And there ran a young man, and told Moses, and said, Eldad and Medad do prophesy in the camp. And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of Moses, one of his young men, answered and said, My lord Moses, forbid them. And Moses said unto him, Enviest (are you jealous for me?) you for my sake? would God that all the LORD's people were prophets, and that the LORD would put his spirit upon them!
Yes, Moses desired that all of Gods people were filled with the Holy Spirit and would function as prophets before the Lord. So let’s draw closer to God by faith, prayer, deep repentance, keeping Gods commandments, Bible study, and witnessing to people about the salvation we have in Christ.
Exodus 34:28-39. And he (Moses) was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments. And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses' hand, when he came down from the mount (mountain), that Moses wist (knew) not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him (God). And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh (near) him.
Exodus 34:35 And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses' face shone: and Moses put the vail upon his face again, until he went in to speak with him (God).
This is a beautiful recounting of how Moses was so filled with the Holy Spirit that his face was radiantly shining with the glory of God. Adam and Eve had this experience in the garden of Eden. Jesus had this experience on the mount of transfiguration.
Matthew 17:1,2,5. And after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, and brought them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured (transformed) before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment (clothing) was white as the light. While he yet spoke, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice (heavenly Mother) out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear you him.
John 5:37 (Jesus said) And the Father himself, which has sent me (Jesus), has borne witness of me. You have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
Because of what Jesus told the people, I tend to believe that it was the Mothers voice who spoke at the baptism and at the transfiguration of Christ. Again the Spirit illuminated the whole body of Christ so that he was shining as the sun. We can experience this also as we receive the latter rain and partake deeply of the Spirit of Christ and the Word of God.
James 3:15-17. This wisdom (spirit of Satan) descends not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying (jealousy) and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom (Spirt of God) that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated (called upon for help), full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality (favoritism), and without hypocrisy (pretension).
This was a comparison of the wisdom of this world with the wisdom of God. There is a big difference. The wisdom of the world allows for lying, cheating, stealing, and taking advantage of others to benefit oneself. The wisdom from above reveals the love and goodness of God towards people.
Isaiah 28:9-13. Whom shall he (God) teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine (teaching)? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts (these are babies drinking the milk of the Word of God). For precept (teaching or law) must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line (scripture) upon line, line upon line; here a little (this verse), and there a little: For with stammering (stuttering) lips and another tongue (language) will he speak to this people. To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith you may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing (latter rain Spirit experience): yet they would not hear. But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward (backslide and fall away in their sins), and be broken, and snared, and taken.
This is a warning. Gods word has revealed what we need to receive the seal of God and to be translated at the coming of Christ. It is our responsibility to take it seriously and apply Gods teachings to our lives. Gods Word has spoken. We are to receive the Word of God as babies drinking milk.
1Peter 2:2,3. As newborn babes (babies), desire the sincere milk of the word, that you may grow thereby: If so be you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
1Corinthians 2:9-14. But as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither has entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love him. But God has revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knows no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit (wisdom) of the world, but the spirit (wisdom) which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Ghost teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
By these verses, we understand that spiritual truth is understood in a spiritual way by those who have spiritual discernment from the heavenly wisdom. This will be the extra oil in the vessels that light up the lamps for the five wise virgins awaiting the Bridegrooms appearing. We, as true Christians, desperately need the Holy Spirit of Wisdom abiding in our hearts so that we can successfully attend the marriage supper of the Lamb.
Questions and answers.
1. How do I know that there is a heavenly Mother and Daughter in the Godhead family?
A. Human beings are made, male and female, in the image and likeness of God.
B. The Holy Spirit is a Person with feelings, speech, and body parts. She is female and gives birth to human beings into the royal family. As we experience the second birth, we are adopted into or grafted into Gods wonderful family.
C. Wisdom is portrayed and described as a woman, a mother, a sister and as being born herself before the earth was made. So She had to have a Mother herself.
D. Jesus is getting married; and those in attendance at the marriage ceremony, are considered to be guests, virgins, bridesmaids, and the sons and daughters of Jerusalem and or Zion. Although the church is sometimes portrayed as being married to God, the Bride of Christ is distinct and separate from humanity. She has many names such as the New Jerusalem, the Mother of us all, Wisdom, Shekinah Glory, etc. The Song of Solomon finds a satisfactory interpretation and explanation in revealing the marriage of Christ and his Bride, along with their courtship, and issues that come up.
2. How did I find out about the Mother and Daughter?
I pray at times for more light on the scriptures and a deeper understanding of Bible truth. God has revealed this knowledge to me. There are some sources available online that teach bits and pieces of this knowledge; and God has blessed me in putting together an ebook explaining this doctrine.
3. Why is this knowledge important?
Today the family is under attack from the enemy on every side. Children are being stolen away from their parents. We are told from the highest earthly authorities that a same sex relationship is acceptable, commendable and worthy of modeling. The human race faces the threat of total annihilation, destruction, and extinction if left to themselves. God has been pleased to share more of his reality with us in the knowledge of the Godhead family so that we can model Gods ways and not the false and sinful human ways.
4. Do we worship the Mother and the Daughter?
We worship God. God and Jesus Christ have told us to worship the Father and the Son, and to pray in Jesus name. So we follow the example given to us in the Bible. Wisdom, and the Holy Spirit our Mother above always point us to the Father and the Son. The female members of the Godhead family are meek, humble, submissive, and lovingly supportive of the Father and the Son and their plans.
There is so much more in the Bible about the Holy Spirit and truth. I invite you to study the Word of God with faith and prayer so you can drink deeply of the Spirit of truth yourself.
May you be blessed with this presentation on the female image of God as revealed in the Bible. This is quite shocking material when first exposed to it; as we are not generally taught this by modern Bible teachers and theologians. www.universalrestoration.info

The Worm Family Illustrated in the Speech of Job
Job 17:13-15. If I wait, the grave is mine house: I have made my bed in the darkness. I have said to corruption, You are my father: to the worm, You are my mother, and my sister. And where is now my hope? as for my hope, who shall see it?
This somewhat despicable representation of a family of worms, as used by Job to reveal his nightmare experience, gave me a glimmer of the God family.
This family of worms has a Father, Mother, and a Sister; but where is the Brother? Ahhh, Job himself is the Brother. Job represented Jesus to his human family and friends. Job suffered horribly as an innocent person similar to what Jesus did for all of humanity.
Jesus described himself as a worm.
Psalm 22:6,9,10. But I (Jesus) am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people. But you (Heavenly Father) are he that took me out of the womb: you did make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts. I was cast upon you from the womb: you are my God from my mother's belly.
This is the desperate cry and prayer of Messiah, Jesus, when nailed upon the cross. He referred to himself as a worm and considered both his Father and his Mother while suffering.
God calls his chosen people a worm also.
Isaiah 41:14 Fear not, you worm Jacob, and you men of Israel; I will help you, says the LORD, and your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
Here’s another verse for confirmation.
Job 25:6. How much less man, that is a worm? And the son of man, which is a worm?
Wow! Both humanity and Jesus Christ are considered a worm in this verse. So in Jobs despair, he considered his Father and his Mother and Sister to be his family. At that moment Job didn’t name Jesus; because he, himself, is as the Brother and the Christ to his family and friends.
Here is an additional note. The Mother is named in Galatians 4:26 as the Jerusalem which is above is free and is the Mother of us all. In Proverbs 7:4. Wisdom invites us to call her Sister and as our close relative, a woman.
Job may have had a literal father, mother, and sister who had already died; and he felt that he was soon to join them due to his sickness. So it may be interpreted in more ways than one. Blessings.
The Seven Spirits of God
The Seven Spirits of God are represented by the females in the Godhead. In Exodus, Moses was instructed to make a lamp stand with seven lamps. Out of the central shaft came out three branches to each side of it. The first Spirit mentioned in Isaiah 11 is the Spirit of the Lord. So the Holy Spirit represents the center shaft. The Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding represents two branches, the Spirit of Counsel and Might represent two branches, and the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord, represent two branches. And so as Wisdom was born and had a beginning; so did her other five sisters. So Holy Spirit Mother gave birth to one Son and six Daughters. These seven are the eyes of the Lord going throughout the whole earth for the good and benefit of the saints. They are all unified working for the common salvation in Christ and uplifting of humanity. In Song of Songs, the Shulamite says, I'm the choice one of my Mother who gave birth to me. Wisdom was the first Daughter born and more favored. King Solomon, in Proverbs, did write not only about Wisdom, but also about Understanding, Knowledge, the Fear of the Lord, Counsel, and Might. These are the names of the seven Spirits of God, including Holy Spirit Mother who is also known as the Spirit of the Lord. I was finally able to grasp this as I continued meditating on this mystery of God that's been lost for probably hundreds of years. This means that the Godhead is made of of nine beings. Nine is a multiple of three. Father, Son Jesus, Holy Spirit Mother, and the six Daughters. Whew! It was difficult for me to bridge the gap and accept that Wisdom was not the only Daughter. But now the mystery of the Seven Spirits of God make much more sense to me. Blessings. So now let’s study the Bible on the topic.
Revelation 1:4,5. John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come (the Father); and from the seven Spirits
which are before his throne (the Holy Spirit); And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness… Why did John describe the Holy Spirit as seven spirits? This is a mystery of God that we
are invited to study into.
Revelation 1:10, 12, 13, 20. I (John) was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, And I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man,…. And Jesus says,… The mystery of the ….seven golden candlesticks…. the seven candlesticks which you saw are the seven churches. …So Jesus told us the church is represented by the seven lamps. Jesus taught that we are the light of the world. This is only because we have the Holy Spirit working in our lives to reveal Gods love and truth.
Revelation 3:1. And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things says he that has the seven Spirits of God,…. Jesus has the seven Spirits of God.
Revelation 4:5. And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. …. Just like in the ancient Hebrew sanctuary that God told Moses to build; there was the candlestick with seven lamps burning everyday and night. Even so these seven lamps of fire burn before Gods throne in heaven. And these lamps of fire are the seven Spirits of God.
Revelation 5:6. And I beheld, and, lo (or look), in the middle of the throne and of the four beings, and in the middle of the elders, stood a Lamb (representing Jesus) as it had been killed, having seven horns (horns represent power and Jesus has been given all power in heaven and on earth) and seven eyes (Jesus sees everything), which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. … So these seven Spirits have been sent into the earth for what purpose? It must be that the Holy Spirit is busy and active assisting and helping the saints and Gods people all over the world. The Holy Spirit is our intercessor, comforter, advocate, and consoler.
Exodus 25:31,32,37,40. And you shall make a candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work shall the candlestick be made: his shaft, and his branches, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers, shall be of the same. And six branches shall come out of the sides of it; three branches of the candlestick out of the one side, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side: And you shall make the seven lamps thereof: and they shall light the lamps thereof, that they may give light over against it. And look that you make them after their pattern, which was showed you in the mountain.
This is where it all seems to have begun. The seven lamp candlestick that Moses had built according to Gods pattern revealed to him. The seven lamps must have special significance.
Zechariah 3:8-10. Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, you, and your fellows that sit before you: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH (Jesus Christ). For behold the stone (the rock of ages, the chief cornerstone that represents Christ) that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, says the LORD of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity (or sin )of that land in one day. In that day, says the LORD of hosts, shall you call every man his neighbor under the vine and under the fig tree. … Here are those seven eyes again. The stone represents Christ and he has the seven eyes or seven spirits of God. This truth is taught by multiple Bible prophets.
Zechariah 4:1-14. And the angel that talked with me came again, and awakened me, as a man that is awakened out of his sleep, And said unto me, What you see? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof: And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof. So I answered and spoke to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord? Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Don’t you know what these be? And I said, No, my lord. Then he answered and spoke unto me, saying, This is the Word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, says the LORD of hosts. … So the Word of God and the Holy Spirit are the olive trees giving oil to the lamps. …Who art you, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone (the cornerstone for the new temple being built) thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it. Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house (or temple of God); his hands shall also finish it; and you shalt know that the LORD of hosts has sent me unto you. For who has despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet (or measuring tool) in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth. … Here are those seven eyes, mentioned again, which go through the earth as the seven Spirits of God. Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof? And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves? And he answered me and said, Don’t you know what these be? And I said, No, my lord. Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth. … So the two olive trees represent Christ the Word of God and the Holy Spirit which interprets the Word of God. These give the oil of love to the churches or people who love and obey Gods law. This is the light of the world.
Now then. Are you ready for the final revelation of the seven Spirits of God? Isaiah has the answer we have been waiting for.
Isaiah 11:1,2. And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch (King David, the child of Jesse, here is representing Christ the Messiah) shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the LORD (the Holy Spirit) shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
So here the seven Spirits of God are named as with their own personalities. The first one is the Spirit of the Lord and represents the Holy Spirit. She is the central shaft in the candlestick with seven lamps. She is the Mother Spirit who gives birth to the other six branches. These are her daughters. The Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding are two branches. The Spirit of Counsel and Might are two branches. And the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord are two branches.
We can understand these six branches or Spirits as being daughters of the Holy Spirit, who is the center shaft of the lamp stand; because of what King Solomon wrote of Wisdom in Proverbs.
Proverbs 1:1,2,6,7. The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel; To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
… Notice that the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord are two of the seven Spirits mentioned here by King Solomon.
Proverbs 1:20,22,-24,26,33. Wisdom cries outside; she utters her voice in the streets: How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity (are satisfied in your ignorance)? and the scorners delight in their scorning (or criticizing and finding fault with others), and fools hate knowledge? Turn you at my reproof (my correction): behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. Because I have called, and you refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear comes; But whoso listens to me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
… Here Wisdom becomes personified and takes on the role of speaking for God. She is described as having a voice, her Spirit that she can pour out upon us, hands, the ability to laugh and make fun of, and so on.
Proverbs 7:4. Say unto wisdom, You art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman: … Here Wisdom invites us to call her Sister and to recognize Understanding as a woman. These are two of the seven Spirits.
Proverbs 8:22,-25,30-36. The LORD possessed me (Wisdom) in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting (or times past), from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth (was born); when there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth (or given birth): Then I was by him, as one brought up (or raised up as a child with God) with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him; Rejoicing in the habitable (where people live) part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men (or people). Now therefore listen unto me, O you children: for blessed are they that keep my ways. Blessed is the man that hears me, watching daily at my gates (up above in heaven), waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso finds me finds life, and shall obtain favor of the LORD. But he that sins against me wrongs his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
… Wow! There’s a lot to unpack here. Wisdom claims to have a beginning where she was actually born. This would necessarily include her five sisters also whenever their birthdays were. Holy Spirit Mother gave birth to Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Might, Knowledge, and the Fear of the Lord. Six Daughters. Of course the firstborn of the Father and only begotten Son is Jesus Christ. Afterward would be the six daughters in their order.
So the Godhead is made up of nine divine persons. Nine is a multiple of three. Father, Mother Holy Spirit, Son Jesus Christ, and Daughters Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Might, Knowledge, and the Fear of the Lord.
So there we have it. The seven Spirits of God as defined in scripture. Is this the correct interpretation? You tell me. Many blessings.
