MARY AND GOD



Is Mary truly the mother of God?

Is she the mother of God’s son?

Does God have a wife named “Mary”?

Does Mary have an exclusive access to God?

Did the Holy Spirit have intercourse with Mary?

:

That is a question we’ve gotten from so many Christians and even some Muslims who are confused about the person of Mary and her relationship with God! In this teaching, we will be discussing it and we will find answers from God’s word!

:

Is Mary actually the mother of God? If the answer is yes, it means the Bible is a book full of lies. The Bible says that in the begining, God created the heavens and the earth… There was no instance of anyone given birth to God. God began before the beginning… In fact, when God said “let there be light!” He was introducing Himself! 

:

Now, what if the answer is no? Of course it is no! There is no “what if”…

:

Is Mary the mother of Jesus? If the answer is no, it means the Bible is a book of folk tales… Even the Muslims believe that Mary gave birth to Jesus. There is a little confusion… How come? How can we say Mary is not the mother of God but the mother of Jesus? Don’t worry… I will explain.

:

Before Mary, Jesus was! The Bible says in John 1:1 “in the beginning was the word… And the word was God”. Jesus is the word of God just as John wrote in verse 14 

:

“The Word became a man and lived among us. We saw his divine greatness—the greatness that belongs to the only Son of the Father. The Word was full of grace and truth.” – Jn. 1:14 ERV

:

This is getting interesting! First, we have established that Jesus is the word of God and now we’re seeing that the word became man. Why did He became man? It is because the earth is only designed to be physically occupied by man! A spirit cannot physically interact with man it must use a physical medium! Didn’t you notice? All of the demons Jesus casted out were from human beings and some demons who still wanted to stay on the physical realm of the earth requested that Jesus cast them into pigs. They begged

:

“If you make us leave these men, please send us into that herd of pigs.” – Mt. 8:31 ERV

:

Now, let me ask… Those people possessed by demon, are their parents “mothers of demons?” The answer is no! Their parents didn’t give birth to demons but demons used the flesh and as a place of residence and operation on earth! It was possible because humans are naturally born in sin and therefore it was always possible and easy for the demons to find a way inside of their bodies!

:

In the case of Jesus, God needed a body so that He can manifest physically on earth in a way He can be seen and communicated with but He needed a body that has never ever been corrupted by sexual sin because sexual sin affects the body like no other sin! Paul writes

:

“So run away from sexual sin. It involves the body in a way that no other sin does. So if you commit sexual sin, you are sinning against your own body.” – 1 Cor. 6:18 ERV

:

As a result, a virgin found favour in God’s sight not because of her own merits but because of God’s graciousness! The Angel said to her 

:

“Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.” – Luke 1:30 KJV

:

This had to happen because if she eventually marry Joseph and have intercourse with him, she cannot be able to be used by God for that purpose anymore (this doesn’t mean that marital sex is sin)! She wasn’t selected because she has never lied before, she simply found favour! In those days, there were plenty of virgins because under the law any woman who commits adultery or fornication is often punished with death! What happened then? How was she able to conceive? Some said the Holy Spirit had intercourse with her or that God married her!… Well, it’s not true! Mary also asked a question of how possible it was because she understood the basic science of sperm fertilizing the egg for a woman to conceive. The Angel said to her

:

“For with God nothing shall be impossible.” – Luke 1:30‭, ‬37 KJV

:

What happened? God who is the creator of man had to do a work in Mary! The first Adam was formed from the soil and now the last Adam was formed inside of a woman called Mary so that He can be given birth to like every other man! The spirit of God possessed the flesh that was formed in Mary and behold Jesus was born!

:

Now you see, Mary was only an instrument used by God to manifest inside a flesh! Mary gave birth to the flesh formed by God in her but not the Spirit that possessed that flesh! Mary didn’t exist before Jesus, Jesus simply manifested on earth through flesh that was formed in Mary. Jesus knew Mary even before Mary knew she was going to give birth! Mary is simply a woman who found favour… Grace found her! Mary was mortal but Jesus was immortal! Mary was limited in her knowledge (John 2:4). Jesus never ever called Mary “mother”, he called her “woman”. There was no place in the Bible where Jesus referred to Mary as his mother! No because He is denying her but because Mary only gave birth to his holy flesh!

:

In fact, on the cross Jesus asked John to take care of Mary but never called Mary “my mother”, he rather called her “John’s mother”. Mary was among people who Jesus came to save! Jesus came to save all of us including Mary from the power of sin and He did! The Bible says

:

“Jesus saw his mother. He also saw the follower he loved very much standing there. He said to his mother, “Dear woman, here is your son.” Then he said to the follower, “Here is your mother.” So after that, this follower took Jesus’ mother to live in his home.” – Jn. 19:26‭-‬27 ERV

:

Why did Jesus had to hand her over to John? It is because naturally, a son takes care of his mother in old age. Jesus knowing that it would be difficult for Mary since He came to be the saviour of the world and not the “son of Mary”, He needed to hand over Mary to John so that she can also benefit from being a mother! At that moment, Mary loosed every right she had on the flesh of Jesus as one who gave birth to it and John became her son as a replacement for what was about to happen! 

:

Now you see? Mary is a saint, a woman of God but not the mother of God and not even the spiritual mother of Jesus! She was just an agent of the entrance of the gospel just as we are agents of the spread of the gospel today! We all have equal right to the father today because through the death of Jesus we all have access to God! Jesus said

:

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. The only way to the Father is through me.” – Jn. 14:6 ERV

:

Jesus isn’t just the only way to the father! Jesus is the father! Hear Jesus

:

“If you really knew me, you would know my Father too. But now you know the Father. You have seen him.”  Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The things I have told you don’t come from me. The Father lives in me, and he is doing his own work.” – Jn. 14:7‭, ‬10 ERV

:

Jesus was trying to communicate to them that He is all they needed to see about God! His flesh which they physically see was given birth to by a woman but the real thing working in Him is God! He never said we needed any other mediator to reach Him so that He can reach God! No! We are to come ourselves with boldness and not through Mary. The Bible says

:

“With Jesus as our high priest, we can feel free to come before God’s throne where there is grace. There we receive mercy and kindness to help us when we need it.” – Heb. 4:16 ERV

:

You see that? We are free to come at anytime in any situation! God is not rigid that He needs people to beg and beg! No one can plead to God in our behalf! Not even our Pastors! You’re the one to come! No one has the merit to come to God’s throne! It’s a throne of Grace and we are only qualified by GRACE to come!

:

Mary is a believer in Jesus Christ, she got saved with others and she got baptized with the Holy Spirit too! She is an amazing woman who availed herself to be used by God and that is what we really need to preach and teach about this model! Even Muslims have great regard for her! Mary is the only woman mentioned by name in the entire 19th Chapter of the Quran. The Quran also said

:

“Mary, the daughter of Imran. She maintained her chastity, then we blew into her from Our spirit. She believed in the words of her Lord and His scriptures; she was obedient.” (66:11-12)

:

Mary is a model especially for our women but does that give her a place as the mother of God? No! She was a servant of God who was faithful to her calling and she was used by God just as God is using various people today! We all share that same privilege, we all have access to God! We pray only in the name of Jesus! Not even by just saying “in Jesus name” but having that consciousness in us that Jesus has given us authority to operate! So, we pray in the authority and position of Jesus!

:

As a believer in God through Christ, you have been made one with God! Paul writes concerning our union with God

:

“But anyone who is joined with the Lord is one with him in spirit.” – 1 Cor. 6:17 ERV

:

You are made one with God through Jesus! Jesus is the only link to God and there is no other link! Not Mary, not any other Saint! Not even your Pastors… Jesus is the only way to God because He is God! The Bible says that “God paid a very high price to make you his…” (1 Cor. 6:20 ERV) why insult God by being afraid of coming to Him direct?

:

The logic that Mary can convince God the more since she gave birth to Jesus in flesh is pointless! God doesn’t need convinctions, God doesn’t need to be argued into doing something! You think Mary would tell Jesus in heaven “my son, go and talk to your father about Kate’s issue”… Nah! It’s not​ true! God doesn’t have a wife, God doesn’t have a mother! We are God’s bride! Yes… All of us including Mary! So… Mary doesn’t have a right you don’t have!

:

I pray that the eyes of our understanding​ continue to be opened! Amen!

:

God bless you.
