Come to Heavenly Father and Mother

Some people think that the Bible is a book full of complicated and difficult stories or that it is merely a guide to wisdom for life. However, the Bible is a book that contains the truth about eternal life. To fully understand the teachings in the 66 books of the Bible, we first need to know that God is our Father and Mother.

When we read the Bible carefully, we can understand that God is our Father and our Mother and we are Their children—spiritual brothers and sisters. We have been cast down to this earth since our souls sinned in the angelic world. The Bible contains the will of Heavenly Father and Mother who want us to achieve complete repentance by living according to the good teachings of God and return to heaven, our lost home. So, the first thing we should do to know the way to heaven is to come to Heavenly Father and Mother.

Come to the Spirit and the Bride


The Bible shows that nobody can know the way to heaven unless God comes to this earth and that no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth, except God who is to come as the Root of David, can open the Bible or interpret it correctly (1 Co 4:5; Rev 5:1–5). In order for mankind to enter the eternal kingdom of heaven, the One who can interpret the Bible rightly must come. Our souls are so precious that we cannot entrust our souls to just anyone. Only when we meet God who will properly lead us to the spring of the water of life can we be saved.

Rev 22:17 The 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.

People are in a severe spiritual famine because they have not found the water of life (Am 8:11–13). To all the spiritually thirsty people on this earth, the Spirit and the Bride say, “Come!” In the Trinity, the Sprit refers to God the Father. Who, then, is the Bride? She is definitely God the Mother because She is the Bride of God the Father. In other words, all people must find the Spirit and the Bride—God the Father and God the Mother, who give them the water of life. Revelation 22 is the final chapter of the whole Bible. The Bible concludes that all the children of heaven should return to Heavenly Father and Mother. In order to return into the arms of God the Father and God the Mother, we need to know who They really are and where They dwell. Let’s find out who gives us the water of life.

Rev 21:6–7 He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son.”

The above verse says that God, who is the Alpha and the Omega, gives mankind the water of life. Comparing it with the words in chapter 22, we can see that the Spirit and the Bride, who give us the water of life, are God. We can also confirm that our relationship with God is a parent-child relationship, through the words: “I will be his God and he will be my son.”

We absolutely need the guidance of God the Father and God the Mother on our way to heaven. I hope that all people will come to God the Father and God the Mother to be comforted for their wearisome and painful lives and to go back to the eternal kingdom of heaven—their lost spiritual home.

The heavenly family consisting of Father, Mother, and children


People have long thought that there is only one God—the Father. However, the Bible clearly testifies to the existence of God the Mother—the Bride. The book of Hebrews contains important records that show the family system in God’s kingdom.

Hebrews 8:5 They serve at a sanctuary that is a copy and shadow of what is in heaven. This is why Moses was warned when he was about to build the tabernacle: “See to it that you make everything according to the pattern shown you on the mountain.”

God commanded Moses to build the tabernacle on the earth according to the pattern of the heavenly sanctuary. Not only the sanctuary, but many other things on this earth are a copy and shadow of what is in heaven. One of them is the family system. The fact that there is the family system on this earth as a copy and shadow implies that there is the family system in heaven as well—the spiritual family. Without reality, its shadow cannot appear.

Mt 6:8–9 “. . . This, then, is how you should pray: ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name . . .’ ”

Jesus referred to God as Father. He taught us that God is our Father. The title “father” is used in homes, not in companies or social organizations. As there are human fathers on this earth which is a shadow, so there is surely God the Father in heaven which is the reality.

However, if there is only a father in a family, it cannot be a complete family. There are also children and a mother in a family on this earth. It is the same spiritually.

2 Co 6:18 “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”

It is God’s children who call God “Father.” The titles “father,” “son” and “daughter” are used at home. However, a family cannot be perfectly formed only with a father, sons and daughters. If a family has a father, sons and daughters, there must be a mother who bore the children. Likewise, the heavenly family does not only consist of God the Father and His children. The existence of God the Mother is absolutely necessary.

Gal 4:26–31 But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother . . . Therefore, brothers, we are not children of the slave woman, but of the free woman.

The word “above” refers to heaven. The Bible tells us so clearly that we have a Heavenly Mother. As we have human mothers who gave birth to us, so we have a Spiritual Mother in the spiritual world which is the reality.

It has long been thought that there is only one God, the Father. However, that is not a Biblical teaching. The Bible, which was written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, tells us that there is definitely God the Mother as well as God the Father. If we overlook this fact, we will fall away from the grace of salvation God has promised to give us.

The heavenly family is tied by God’s flesh and blood


God has brought us into a family relationship with Him. As an earthly family, which is a copy and shadow, is tied by blood, so the heavenly family is also tied by blood. To teach us this fact, God has established the new covenant—the law of truth—on this earth.

Jn 6:53–54 Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”

Unless we eat the holy body of Christ and drink His precious blood, we have no life in us. However, if we eat the flesh of Christ and drink His blood, we receive the promise of salvation from God.

Children have the flesh and blood of their parents. God has made us His children by putting His flesh and blood in us. Let’s see what we should do to partake of Christ’s flesh and blood.

Mt 26:17–19, 26–28 On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?” He replied, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.’ ” So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover . . . While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.” Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.”

Christ broke the Passover bread, saying it is His body, and He promised that the Passover wine contained in the cup would be His blood. Whoever eats the bread and drinks the wine has eternal life. So, the Passover is a ceremony where we receive the body and blood of Christ. As the earthly family is tied by blood, so the heavenly family is tied by blood; we are all members of the eternal family. Only when we receive the truth of the New Covenant Passover can we be acknowledged as the children of Heavenly Father and Mother and inherit the eternal kingdom of heaven.

The love of Heavenly Father and Mother


We were destined to go to hell as a result of sin, but the Spirit and the Bride have changed our destiny from hell to heaven. Through Their sacrificial love, They have provided a turning point for us humans to go back to heaven—our eternal home.

Rev 20:10–15 And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever . . . And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what he had done. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

Those who do not know the spiritual world think that everything comes to an end on the last day of their lives on this earth. However, the Bible says, “Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment” (Heb 9:27). This shows that God determines whether a person will go to heaven or hell according to what he or she has done on this earth.

God the Father and God the Mother couldn’t just sit and watch Their children head towards a miserable future. So, They came down to this earth and redeemed us from our sins. Is there anyone who would lay down his or her life for mortal sinners? This is something that no one, except our Parents, can do. It is only Heavenly Father and Mother who can unhesitatingly decide to bear our sins deserving of death instead of us.

Ro 8:16–18 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

God has testified that we are His children. He has given us a precious teaching that we should endure and overcome temporary difficulties until we enter the eternal kingdom of heaven so that we can share in His brilliant glory. While living on this earth, we cannot avoid suffering. At the end of our suffering, however, the glorious eternal kingdom of heaven full of joy and happiness is waiting for us.

The Passover is not just a day when we eat bread and drink wine. It is the day when God gives His holy flesh and blood to the children of heaven. God has made a way to save His mortal children and opened wide the way for everyone to enter it. He has also made all disasters pass over His children, who have His flesh and blood, so that nobody and nothing can harm even a hair on their head. This is the love of Heavenly Father and Mother, which is revealed through the mystery of the Passover.

There are still many people around us who live aimlessly, not knowing the truth of the New Covenant Passover and not understanding what spiritual relationship we have with God. We should let them know the answer to the fundamental questions: Why did we come to this earth, and where are we going? I hope that all of you, members of the heavenly family around the world, will return into the arms of Heavenly Father and Mother through the Passover of the new covenant and run powerfully toward the eternal glory of heaven, leaving all your past pain, suffering and sorrow behind. I earnestly ask you, brothers and sisters in Zion, to take the lead in finding our brothers and sisters according to the example of Heavenly Father and Mother and to give eternal thanks and glory to Them for being our Father and Mother.
