Why Some Call Creator, Mother Father God
Why we call Creator, Mother/ Father God
Is God just our father, or is Creator our mother too? Is there scripture and language interpretation to back up this belief?
Science says all humans have male and female chromosomes and all embryos are without sex identity the first eight weeks of gestation. In the seventh week, the embryo has both male and female primordial ducts. Both male and female genitals form from the same tissue.
So embryos are male and female at the same time. Later one becomes the dominant outward appearance ( but not always the gender ) Regardless, throughout our lives we still remain both male and female, In other words we are androgynous.
If the X chromosome fertilizes the egg, a female develops, if the Y chromosome fertilizes the egg, a male develops. It is that simple and that complex. A embryo could develop either way
There are times when neither side becomes more dominant and is termed inter sexuality, which may be in a variety of forms, and occurs in about one of every 200 births
Ok by now you are probably thinking what in the world does this have to do with what we call our Creator
Using the King James Bible Version ( Only because It seems to be widely accepted ) When creating all but man the scriptures say God said let there be……..and there was. But when it came to creating humanity the scriptures say God said ..Genesis 1:28..Let us make man in our image, after our likeness..verse 27..So God created man in his own image. In the image of God, created he man, male and female created He them.
Genesis 5: v 1….God created man, in the likeness of God made he him. V2..male and female created he them, and blessed them and called their name Adam in the day when they were created..
Since God created mankind as male and female both inwardly in our chromosomes and outwardly as two different genders and states that we were created in his image, God is telling us that he, himself is both male and female. Though some will have a hard time with this concept. In his image means nothing less than in his image. By telling humans they are the image of God, He is indeed revealing himself and his nature to us. (Not only are we made up as God in his nature we are also made up as God in his power and all other attributes.. Psalms 82.6 I have said, you are gods and all of you are the children of the most high ..St John 10.34 ..Is it not written in your law, I said, you are gods ) So we are all like God in every aspect only much much smaller and of course less divine. The Shekinah is the Feminine side of God
The Shekinah or Shechinah Pronounced She-KEE-nah meaning Divine Presence. Shekinah in Hebrew is a feminine noun, Isaiah speaks of the Shekinah using feminine pronouns. Read all of Isaiah 51 but especially Isaiah 51:9, 10, the pronouns are feminine. In verse 10 the King James Bible uses thou and it to refer to the Shekinah. Both pronouns used are feminine in Hebrew.
>From The Thesaurus ( Shekinah | sh ə kh ēˈnä;(also Shekhinah) noun Jewish & Christian Theology the glory of the divine presence, conventionally represented as light or interpreted (in Kabbalism as a divine feminine aspect). ORIGIN from late Hebrew, from šākan ‘dwell, rest.’ )
If you read the Qumran you’ll find that it adds a “yod” making it feminine for sure. The visible Majesty of the Divine presence performed miracles to guide and protect Israel. ( From The Thesaurus – Qumran |koŏmˈrän|The Dead Sea scrolls were found 1947–56 in caves at nearby Khirbet Qumran, the site of an ancient Jewish settlement.)
Yes the Mighty Father is the head and the ruler but he is both male and female and is merciful, loving and kind and this is the Divine Mother. Our Creator is our Mother/ Father God
