God the Mother, the Spiritual Oasis

God the Mother, the Spiritual Oasis

Earth is the only known planet that is able to sustain life. One of the reasons why Earth is able to support life is because of the accessibility to water on the surface. Without water, no living creature would be able to survive. Therefore, it is not too much to say that water is life itself. If someone was in the desert for a long time, wandering without knowing where to go, what would be most important for them is to find water. If that person were to be in the desert even for a day without water, when they find an oasis, they would feel as if they have found life itself. This earth is like a spiritual desert for our souls. The spiritual oasis in this age is God the Mother.

The Physical is a Copy and Shadow of the Spiritual

The fact that we need water to maintain life our bodies teaches us that our souls too need water in order to have life, namely eternal life. Through God’s teachings, we can understand that the physical systems on this earth teach us about the invisible, spiritual systems.

Hebrew 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.”

Just as Moses built the earthly tabernacle according to the heavenly one, the physical systems are a copy and shadow of what is in heaven. Among them is the fact that water is absolutely essential for life. Spiritually too, we need the water that only God gives in order to receive eternal life for our souls.

God is the Source of Water of Life

In every age, we can see that it is only God who is the source of the living water, since God is the Savior who has authority to grant His people salvation. In the Old Testament, it was God the Father Jehovah who gave the people eternal life.

Jeremiah 2:13 “My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water…”

A spring is defined as the place where water wells up from. This means that the LORD God is the source of the water of life. Even though there were many of God’s prophets at that time, none of them were acknowledged as the source of the water of life like God. It is the same in the New Testament.

John 4:11-14 “Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? … Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

In the New Testament times, it is only Jesus Christ who is able to give the living water, eternal life. Though there were many disciples of Jesus who delivered the gospel to people, none of them had the power to give the water of life. It was only Jesus Christ, the Savior, who can give the water of life to people who are dying of spiritual thirst. Who is the one that will give the water of life to people in the last days?

Revelation 22:17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.

In the last days, it is prophesied that God the Holy Spirit and His Bride will be the Ones who call to mankind “Come and take the water of life!”.

The Bride is God the Mother

Who is the Bride that will appear alongside the Holy Spirit to deliver the water of life?

Revelation 21:9-10 One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.” And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.

Here, we are shown the Bride, the wife of the Lamb. She is the Holy City, Jerusalem who is in heaven. Then, what the relationship between the Heavenly Jerusalem and God’s people?

Galatians 4:26 But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.

Above indicates heaven, so this is speaking about the Heavenly Jerusalem. Who is the Heavenly Jerusalem to us, the children of promise? She is our Heavenly Mother. The Bible consistently teaches us that it is only God, the Savior who is able to give us the water of life. Therefore, the Bride is God, our Heavenly Mother, who has authority to give the water of life.

Revelation 21:6 He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life.

It is God, the Beginning and the End, who will give the water of life to the thirsty souls on this earth. However, in this last age it is not just God the Holy Spirit who will give to people the water of life, but also the Bride, Heavenly Jerusalem Mother. On this earth, it is a matter of fact that we need to drink water in order to survive, it is the same for our spirits. If we want to receive the water of life, eternal life, for our souls, we must go to the source of the living water, the spiritual oasis. In these last days, it is the Spirit and the Bride, Heavenly Father and Mother who are the Saviors who can give us eternal life. Let us all follow our Heavenly Father and Mother, so that we can receive the water of life abundantly and go to the Kingdom of Heaven.
