In many countries, people call their country as motherland. It is because their mother is in the country and they were born in there from their mother who leaves in the country. Then what do you think about our heavenly motherland? Did you ever hear about that? Surprisingly, the Bible is testifying the existence of our heavenly hometown and this is the heaven in which our Heavenly Mother dwells. For understanding this matter, firstly you have to realize origin of our spirit.
Ge 2:7 the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
Ecc 12:7 and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.
The spirit returns to God. God dwells in heaven so it means our spirit originally was with God in heaven before we get birth from our physical father and mother. (Return means that going back to former, original place). It means that heaven is our hometown! And we have to regard the place as our motherland as we say our hometown as motherland because there is our Heavenly Mother in heaven and She gives us eternal life as our physical mother does.
Gal 4:26 But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.
In the above which indicates the heaven which is above of us, there is our Heavenly Mother and She gives us eternal life as our Mother.
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.
In this verse, the bride is giving us water of life that means eternal life, spiritual life for us. She is our savior and She is God the Mother who was in our Heavenly Home. But, now, She is in this earth as God in the flesh. It is because She came to here for saving us by giving water of life. We have to give thanks and all the glory to Her because She is giving up all things even the heaven for our salvation. Anyway, our Heavenly Mother dwells in heaven so the heaven is our motherland which we must go back by keeping the Passover and getting eternal life from Elohim God.
