God’s Two Images
Let us study through the Bible to discover the existence of our spiritual Mother.
Gen. 1:26-27 『Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness..." So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.』
The above verse states that God has two images—a male image and a female image. Until now, we have only known and called upon the male image of God: "Father." Then how should we call upon the female image of God? Logically, we should refer to God's female image as "Mother." This is why God had said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness."
The word "us" is a plural term. "Elohim," the Hebrew word used in place of "God" in Genesis 1:26, directly translates to "Gods," the plural form of the word "God." Therefore, the references to "us" in the book of Genesis refer to God the Father and God the Mother. Some say that the word "us" in this verse indicates God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. If this argument is correct, there should be three types of people in the world—those who were made in the image of God the Father, those who resemble the image of God the Son, and those created in the image of the Holy Spirit. However, on this earth there are only two types of people: men and women. However, the "Gods" mentioned in Genesis 1:26 are the male image of God and the female image of God—God the Father and God the Mother.
