Do we have to worship a wall of a city?
…and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth. (Isaiah 62:7)
[“God the Mother” with the World Mission Society Church of God]At a glance, some might think the above verse is about a prophecy that God will build the city of Jerusalem. But it’s just a fragmented understanding. If we look at the mate of this verse in the Scriptures, we can understand the meaning behind it.
But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother. (Galatians 4:26)
A long ago time, the prophet Isaiah prophesied that God would establish Heavenly Mother just as Adam had named his wife ‘Eve’:
Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living.
We need to know that Jerusalem recorded in the book of Isaiah does not merely refer to a city located in Palestine near the Mediterranean, but also contains a prophecy about Heavenly Mother. Those who consider Jerusalem as a mere building are to fall into a big error.
Your gates will always stand open, they will never be shut, day or night, so that men may bring you the wealth of the nations? their kings led in triumphal procession. For the nation or kingdom that will not serve you will perish; it will be utterly ruined. (Isaiah 60:11-12)
Isaiah 60 is about the future glory of Jerusalem. The word “you” above refers to the city of Jerusalem. If you think Jerusalem is just a wall of a city, which exists in Israel, it’s concluded that you should worship a building to get salvation because it’s written, “For the nation or kingdom that will not serve you will perish.”
Isn’t it strange? How can God, who forbade idolatry (Exodus 20:4), command us to worship a wall of a city? Such an error occurs because people consider Jerusalem as a mere city. They will result in destruction according to the warning of God regarding those who distort the Bible to their own destruction (2 Peter 3:16.)
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.” 10 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. (Revelation 21:9-10)
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.
The Church of God believes God the Mother who came to this earth as a source of life according to the prophecies of the Bible. Please come to the Church of God full of Mother’s love to receive the forgiveness of sins and the blessings of the eternal life allowed from God the Mother who endures Her whole life in unconditional sacrifice and endless prayer.
