I have studied about the Goddess Asherah for over 15 years. I could not understand why God would condemn His people for loving and honoring His own wife.
I could not believe that the Mother Goddess, so beloved by a nation, and an entire world, could be perceived as evil. After all the very commandments say to honor both Mother and Father.
As I have studied other cultures, namely Chinese and African, I realized something. The Hebrew people became confused. Mother God was constant but they pit Father God and Son against each other in being by Her side. Baal, his son and El, father God.
Also, the Israelites began mimicking the other cultures around them in their way of worship. Giving raisin cakes to the Queen of Heaven is what they did in China, to worship the goddess of the moon.
The ancient Hebrew religion became syncretized, just as Christianity has today. All of the ancient religions were very similar. Hebrews worshipped Father and Mother God in carved images as well as in nature. The Ark of the covenant is made with the sacred wood of Goddess Asherah, and represents Her womb.
The articles therein, the Holy Mana(bread of life), rod of Aaron(allegory for a male savior), and the commandments(Word of God) all prophesy Jesus Christ as the child of Asherah being born as Savior.
God made Israel a “motherless” nation, not to prevent destruction, but as punishment. Deuteronimists re-wrote historical fact in the Bible to cover this up. Scholar Dever proves that the Jericho war accounts were a bit exaggerated.
The Israelites, like every other culture, sought world domination. Their only saving grace was the pure heart they possessed for YHWH. It became lost in strategy, lies, betrayal and religious syncretism.
God took their Mother away because they no longer deserved Her. After this occurred the Jews became prisoners of war, slaves and the tribes were scattered.
The Book of Esther, the only book of the Bible, without God in it, is actually a secret prophecy. It was written in a story format to secretly pass down God’s plan of redemption for His people.
We see the King fire His Queen. And yet another soon takes Her place. She has been with the people all along. She is brought forth by Her protector, Mordecai. Like Jesus brought Mary back to the people, Mordecai and Esther risked their lives to equip the people to overcome the enemy.
The prophecy was spoken by Judge Prophetess Deborah.
Villagers in Israel would not fight;
they held back until I, Deborah, arose,
until I arose, a mother in Israel.
8 God chose new leaders
when war came to the city gates…”
Barak was the soldier with her. He refused to go into battle without her. And because of it she warned a woman would be responsible for his victory. He was fine with it. Lol!
It’s no coincidence Barak and MICHELLE (Female version of the name for the prince of all angels) were our presidential leaders and now Trump is in office. Trump is the Sisera, who represents the zealot patriarchal order, it is their last stand, but nevertheless…the hand of woman will metaphorically destroy the patriarchal power of war and destruction that Trump represents. Have no fear!
Jesus Christ came and walked on the Sea of Galilee. But why? The goddess Asherah is also named She Who Treads on the Sea. He was identifying himself as the Staff of Aaron, the son of Asherah, that the people were longing for.
As Jesus hung on the cross, he looked at the “one he loved”. This person, many identify as John was Lazarus. Lazarus, the young man who followed Jesus everywhere and who was brought back to life from the dead.
At the crucifixion, Jesus gave Lazarus (a ressurected man) his mother Mary. This was symbolic of giving all of Israel, and those who believed, their Mother back. Thus the prophecy became fulfilled. We are no longer a motherless nation.
Prophet Isaiah said: “Shake yourself from the dust and arise; be seated, O Jerusalem; loose the bonds from your neck, O captive daughter of Zion.”
Prophet Micah said,”Rise and thresh, Daughter Zion, for I will give you horns of iron; I will give you hooves of bronze, and you will break to pieces many nations.” You will devote their ill-gotten gains to the LORD, their wealth to the Lord of all the earth.”
The Daughters of Zion were once the High Priestesses of Asherah, led by Miriam and later Mary Magdalene, the strong tower. Now the daughter of Zion means all of the world, because she is not just Mother of all Israel but Mother of humankind!
And in the Book of Ruth the entire story is about the arising of Mother Holy Spirit to be restored once more to us by Boaz/Christ. See Naomi is the Holy Spirit Zion. It is Her that lost Her children and wanders with only one daughter who stayed steadfast in Her devotion. Women have carried Mother God in her subconscious and now we are awakening.
Boaz called Ruth Daughter
Why would a man call his potential wife daughter?
“And now, my daughter, don’t be afraid. I will do for you all you ask. All the people of my town know that you are a woman of noble character.”
Notice he also called her a Proverbs 31 Woman. A woman of noble character.
He recognized her as a Daughter of Asherah, the Holy Spirit! She was a daughter of Zion and thus worthy to be his bride.
Thus this made Naomi an allegory for the Mother of the Nation! It even says that Boaz and Ruth conceived a child and that child was given to sit on Naomi’s knee. She was a mother once again!
The entire Bible is about the loss of our divine Mother and Her restoration to us. Again and again, the Bible stories and Jesus himself show us.
So why are Christians still so blind? We are like those Jews, motherless, as we cling to the old beliefs and traditions rooted in our orphancy. It is time, O Daughter of Zion, to rise and thresh! Mary the Mother of Christ is our Esther and Mother God restored! From Eve to Mary, we find redemption through Christ! He is her BARAK! See Jesus is Mother God’s champion in leading the peoole to Her!
And so Jesus and the Father are one in thought. Do you not see how much he loves His Bride? And us?
Listen to your heart, it’s time to show the world the love of God as a Mother as well of as a Father. If you want an end to the endless wars, and bastardization of humanity GIVE US BACK OUR MOTHER!!!!
Blessings of sunshine bubbly love light workers!
