Who is God and does He have a mother?

Published:

Some people think that God is the Father and some think that God is the Father + The Son + The Holy Ghost.

So very many people think that God does have a mother.

So:

This came from that site:

The First Book of Moses, Called
Genesis
1

The Creation
1  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3  ¶ And God said, Let there be light: 2 Cor. 4.6 and there was light.
4  And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5  And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
6  ¶ And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7  And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
8  And God called the firmament Heaven. 2 Pet. 3.5 And the evening and the morning were the second day.
9  ¶ And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
10  And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
11  And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12  And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
13  And the evening and the morning were the third day.
14  ¶ And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven todivide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and forseasons, and for days, and years:
15  and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
16  And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
17  And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
18  and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
19  And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
20  ¶ And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
21  And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth,which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and everywinged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
22  And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
23  And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
24  ¶ And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after hiskind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after hiskind: and it was so.
25  And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle aftertheir kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after hiskind: and God saw that it was good.
26  ¶ And God said, Let us make man in our image, 1 Cor. 11.7 after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of thesea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over allthe earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Mt. 19.4 · Mk. 10.6

-----------------------------------

What Do we get from that?

God was first

Men and Women were created by God and so came later.

No mention of God having a mother.

From that came this:

John, chapter 1

 

Compare with Revised Standard Version: John.01

     1: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2: The same was in the beginning with God.
3: All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4: In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5: And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
6: There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7: The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
8: He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9: That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
10: He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11: He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12: But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14:Andthe Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld hisglory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of graceand truth.
15: John bare witness of him, and cried,saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me ispreferred before me: for he was before me.
16: And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
17: For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
18: No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
19: And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?
20: And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.
21: And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.
22: Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?
23: He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.
24: And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.
25:And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thoube not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet?
26: John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not;
27: He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.
28: These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.
29: The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
30: This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me.
31: And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.
32: And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.
33:And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the samesaid unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, andremaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.
34: And I saw, and bare record thatthis is the Son of God.
35: Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;
36: And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!
37: And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.
38:Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, Whatseek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, beinginterpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou?
39: He saithunto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abodewith him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.
40: One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
41:He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We havefound the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.
42:And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thouart Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is byinterpretation, A stone.
43: The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.
44: Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
45:Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, ofwhom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth,the son of Joseph.
46: And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.
47: Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
48:Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered andsaid unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under thefig tree, I saw thee.
49: Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi,thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.
50:Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw theeunder the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things thanthese.
51: And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I sayunto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of Godascending and descending upon the Son of man.

--------------------

What did we get from that text?

In the very beginning there were God and the Word

There were no women and no men

As it turns out:

God is the Father and the Word is Christ

And they are both God

God is God, The Father is God, the Son is Christ and is also The Word and both of them are God.

To see and to know Christ is also to see and to know The Father (God).

The Father is in The Son and The Son is in The Father.

----------------

As God and The Verb were before anything else came into being, then God does not have a mother.

John, chapter 2

 

Compare with Revised Standard Version: John.02

     1: And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:
2: And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
3: And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.
4: Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
5: His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
6:And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner ofthe purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.
7: Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.
8: And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.
9:When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine,and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the waterknew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,
10:And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth goodwine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thouhast kept the good wine until now.
11: This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
12:After this he went down to Capernaum,he, and his mother, and hisbrethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not many days.
13: And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,
14: And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
15:And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out ofthe temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers'money, and overthrew the tables;
16: And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.
17: And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.
18: Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?
19: Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
20: Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
21: But he spake of the temple of his body.
22:When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples rememberedthat he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, andthe word which Jesus had said.
23: Now when he was inJerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name,when they saw the miracles which he did.
24: But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men,
25: And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.

Mary was (and Is ?) the mother of Jesus.

John, chapter 17

 

Compare with Revised Standard Version: John.17

     1:These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said,Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also mayglorify thee:
2: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
3: And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
4: I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
5: And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
6:I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of theworld: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thyword.
7: Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.
8:For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and theyhave received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee,and they have believed that thou didst send me.
9: I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
10: And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
11:And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and Icome to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thouhast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
12:While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those thatthou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son ofperdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
13: And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
14:I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because theyare not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
15: I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
16: They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
17: Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
18: As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
19: And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
20: Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
21:That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee,that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thouhast sent me.
22: And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
23:I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; andthat the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, asthou hast loved me.
24: Father, I will that they also,whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold myglory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before thefoundation of the world.
25: O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
26:And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that thelove wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

John, chapter 20

 

Compare with Revised Standard Version: John.20

     1:The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yetdark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from thesepulchre.
2: Then she runneth, and cometh to SimonPeter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith untothem, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we knownot where they have laid him.
3: Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre.
4: So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.
5: And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.
6: Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,
7: And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
8: Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed.
9: For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.
10: Then the disciples went away again unto their own home.
11: But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,
12: And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
13:And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them,Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they havelaid him.
14: And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.
15:Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She,supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou haveborne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take himaway.
16: Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
17:Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to myFather: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto myFather, and your Father; andto my God, and your God.
18: Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her.
19:Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when thedoors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of theJews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace beunto you.
20: And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.
21: Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
22: And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:
23: Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.
24: But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.
25:The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. Buthe said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of thenails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust myhand into his side, I will not believe.
26: And aftereight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: thencame Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said,Peace be unto you.
27: Then saith he to Thomas, reachhither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, andthrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.
28: And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.
29:Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hastbelieved: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
30: And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:
31:But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ,the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

Jesus - the Christ is the Son of God

While the Christ is God, He is also The Son of God.

(Foremost) The Father is God, but The Son is also God

There is only One God

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+12%3A46-50&version=NKJV

Matthew 12:46-50 (New King James Version)

Jesus’ Mother and Brothers Send for Him

   
46 While He was still talking to the multitudes, behold, His mother and brothers stood outside, seeking to speak with Him. 47 Then one said to Him, “Look, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, seeking to speak with You.”
48 But He answered and said to the one who told Him, “Who is My mother and who are My brothers?” 49 And He stretched out His hand toward His disciples and said, “Here are My mother and My brothers! 50 For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother.”

---------------

Mary was or is mother of Jesus The Christ Son of God.

Yet nowhere do I see here where it says that Mary is mother of God.

God and the Word (Verb) were before anything else was, the rest are creations, all men and women and Angels are creations (the created).

How can God have a mother that came after (Him) and who (Herself) is a creation (Created by Him)?

-----------------------------

We can only read and try to interpret, only God knows for sure.

Don't let me or anybody else make your mind for you, make your own mind yourself, that is as it should be!

Don't let anybody take nor add to what is there (Scriptures), what is done is done!

If it is not there, then it should not be there, if it is there, it is because it should be there.

These are very controversial issues, The Bible itself has the first and last words, if it ain't there then it isn't, if it is there, then it is.

Simple as that, regarless of what any-body or religious order(s) says.

The Bible is right, all others are wrong.

In hermetic philosophy, the creator of all things is referred to as THE ALL. In creating our universe, THE ALL created a male (FATHER) and female (MOTHER), and in their "union", the universe was created. The FATHER of our universe is the one who most people refer to as GOD.

In this sense, the definition of GOD would have to be agreed upon. If GOD is considered the equivalent of THE ALL, then he does not have a mother because THE ALL is all things. But GOD, the co-creator of our universe, does have a mother/father in the being of THE ALL.
