    Smile Divine Mother.......

    ~*~*~


    Don't forget the divine Mother, the sacred feminine aspect of 'God'. To honor the Father, we must also honor the Mother.

    Devotion to the Divine Mother

    Lightbulb Honor thy Father and Mother......

    We might remind everyone that 'God' is both 'Father' and 'Mother'. While Jesus taught us to address God as 'Our Father',...we must also recognize the divine feminine, the Mothering Spirit of God as well, since 'God' includes both gender-qualities and attributes. Blessings in the Infininite One - this is why man has naturally allowed the worship of the Goddess or divine Mother, and various goddesses. These are but the feminine expressions and personifications of the divine.

    Remember,....in whose image was man made? In whose likeness? What is man? Did He not created them 'male' and 'female'? There are 2 genders which reflect the divine image, which represent 'God'. Man is the image and likeness of Elohim. -therefore,...there are both 'masculine' and 'feminine' aspects, qualities and attributes of Deity. - these are manifested as 'male' and 'female'. If 'God' is 'Father', there there must also be a 'Mother' or 'feminine' aspect to 'God'. Therefore the title in some schools of calling Deity 'Father-Mother-God' holds,....in a parental sense. - such is the dual-unity of Spirit, mirrored in masculine and feminine form. Gender is dual, Spirit is One.

    From a Jewish perspective, the Holy Spirit of God is 'feminine' (ruach hakodesh), and the Shekinah (Presence) is feminine. Naturally so,...the nurturing/mothering aspect of God can be known as 'Mother'. There is no rule or command to acknowledge God as our also our divine Mother,..but if 'God' is our supernal Parent, then we are born from God, who is Father and Mother. - there is no creation, no offspring without the two in intercourse.

    Also note one of the fundamental laws is to respect/honor your mother and your father. Your 'mother' and your 'father' is 'God', albeit in human form, since 'God' is the sole power and progenitor of all. If we are to see the image and likeness of God, we are to look no further than Man (male/female). Therefore, if God be 'Father-Mother'....then we are to honor the Mother just as we honor the Father, since they are One. The One is represented in the Two, and Two in the One - and even so, we reflect 'God'. The glory of God is Man, the marriage of the two as one.

    I do see what you are saying and why, but God says let's make MAN in our image, and then woman was made in the image of man for man.

    Just because God is kind and patient that does not make it feminine or female attributes.

    No, there is no must be.

    God is called 'Father'.

    I think you misunderstand that.

    God is Spirit and HIS SPIRIT goes forth from Him. His Holy Spirit is referred to as 'He'.

    I just do not agree with the way you reasoned that.

    It is not in the scriptures.

    1 Corinthians 11:7 A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man.

    Also, if you are assuming that there has to be a mother because there is a father, you can't stop there! There must be a heavenly grandfather and grandmother because in human terms you can't have a father and a mother without first having grandparents! After all, God has to be confined to the rules of humanity!

    We can't make assumptions like this without any Biblical reference to it whatsoever! It is Idolatry plain and simple. Before long we will be praying to the Heavenly Father, Son, and Uncle Charlie!
