Short Story: Who is God?

Many people from different parts of the world have heard a very peculiar question: “Have you heard of Mother God?”, sometimes in the streets or shopping malls, sometimes in school or work, but not many people were very interested in learning about Mother God.
Something peculiar happened the other day. One day while preaching my brother and I met a girl. She was very nice and polite when she was approached and asked “would you mind if we share with you something from the bible?” “Have you heard of Mother God before?”. She was a very polite person, so she told me and my brother: “I wouldn’t mind but I don’t care about knowing God, I just believe there is a God, and that’s what I am comfortable with”. This same answer was also given by many people from different places.
"Why is the reason we should know God?" She asked, so since she believed in the bible we were able to show her the reason why:
John 17:3 Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
The answer was very clear. Whoever wants eternal life need to know God, the true God. So she asked us: "who is true God then? Isn’t He Jehovah or Jesus?" Well, we said, True God is the one testified in the bible, the God that created heavens and earth, as well as all that is in them. So let's see who is that creator God. We showed her Genesis 1:26
Genesis 1:26-27
26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."
27 So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.
She was very surprised about this, since she had never noticed about the plural image of God, male and female, even though she had gone to a catholic high school. Since male God is our Father, female God should be our Mother, and to prove it we showed her Galatians 4:26 "But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.
We could also show her a little bit about the correct day of worship, Saturday, and how it was abolished by the Catholic Church in AD 321. She was just very shocked and her spiritual eyes we fully opened now.
I share this story with you, dear folks, because I just proved that the word of God is Absolute:
John 8:47
47 He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God."
Even though some people have not heard about Mother God, and many other truths in the bible, whoever belongs to God will definitely hear and therefore obey the word of God. I’m so thankful that my now “new Sister” has found the way of salvation. I really hope that in the same way as she opened her heart to God, many of you, dear friends, can have the chance of studying the bible and get to know our Heavenly Mother God. Remember
Revelation 22:17
17The Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life
Let’s learn more about the Spirit (our Father) and let’s meet the Bride (our Mother) so we can also, just like the newly baptized sister, receive salvation, the water of life…
See you next time…..
