A study of Yahweh as heavenly parents.

Q8: What evidence is there that GOD are heavenly parents?

Hypothesis: Can Yahweh also refer to heavenly parents?

Introduction: In the New Testament, Jesus called Yahweh in heaven His Father. What does this mean? Does the heavenly Yahweh have a Son as we humans might understand a Son that has been with the Father always (time does not exist with GOD).

Method: All passages with Yahweh, Elohiym are studied and listed here for the reader.

Conclusion: The word "Yahweh" seems to reference maleness-love members of the FAMILY of GOD. The term can mean Father-Yahweh or Son-Yahweh. In other passages there are three functional descriptors of GOD, describing GOD as a FAMILY of three co-eternal Beings.

Discussion: A brief but thorough presentation continues:-

(1) Job 5:17 Behold, happy is the man whom "Allowaah" correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Shadday:

Here is another poetry parallel telling us the Father "Allowaah" is a simile of function with the Shadday. This verse is describing heavenly parents. In any earthly family which is a simile of the heavenly family, we would expect parents to be united in character and purpose.

Another theory of faith is to say Yahweh is a simile of Allowaah who corrects, and Yahweh is a simile of Shadday who chasteneth. This theory of faith preserves a single Yahweh but gives him two different functional descriptors of looking at Yahweh: Allowaah and Shadday. (Note: Allowaah can also be spelled as Eloah)

(2)Lu 1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her,

  • The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, (Shadday)
  • and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: (Allowaah)
  • therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

    In this verse we see heavenly parents doing the BORN process, which we would expect with the Hebrew word "yalad" or "born". We also see in this verse their Son, was not formed from earthly parents, but from heavenly ones, and that Mary was an incubator and a pathway for the entrance for divinity encapsulated by humanity to enter the world looking like a normal human child.

    Another theory of faith is to say this is a Hebrew poetry parallel, in which Yahweh comes over Mary as the highest, or Yahweh comes over Mary as the Holy Spirit. This preserves the position of a single Yahweh but compounds the reason for saying the birth process in two different ways, and confuses the Hebrew word "yalad".

    It is important to reason two Beings as parents overshadow Mary, taking her human egg, and making it fertile, with both heavenly parents overshadowing her.

    (3) Ex 6:2 And God "Yahweh" spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD "Yahweh": 3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name "single numerical ONE of Strong Authority" the SHADDAY, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.

    This passage describes Yahweh and Shadday working together as a team. The reason for the Shadday (Holy Spirit form) to be always with Yahweh, coming to mankind, is to allow through the medium, the dysfunctional human to exist in the presence of Yahweh.

    Another theory of faith is to say this is a single Yahweh but expressing the Shadday functional descriptor for some special reason.

    (4)Ge 49:25 Even by the "single numerical ONE of Strong Authority" of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the SHADDAY,, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:

    This verse makes simile pictures of heavenly parents, with the father and the Shadday who has simile functions capable of womb and breast functions which are symbols of blessings and protection.

    Another theory of faith is to say this is a single Yahweh but expressing the "father" function as a simile similar to earth pictures of the father, which is the same thing as saying this is a simile of a mother to earth pictures of a mother with a womb and breasts for nurture of her family. Thus with this alternative theory of faith we have preserved a single Yahweh, who expresses both "father and mother" characteristics. We can say from the Hebrew poetry parallel that these two ideas are really the same idea only expressed in two different ways.

    (5)Ge 1:27 So God "Elohiym" created man in his own image, in the image of God "Elohiym" created he him; gender-male and gender-female created he them.

    This verse describes the heavenly powers of the FAMILY creating humans with simile powers of GOD. This does NOT imply the FAMILY of GOD are gender anything, humans have placed labels on GOD such as "mother" and "father" but there is no direct evidence for this. What we do know is there are TWO heavenly BEINGS acting as parents, with powers as similes of earthly families with their powers of pro-creation. This might explain why Satan is hateful of mankind because mankind can "pro-create", while angels cannot. This is why mankind is called "Elohiym" in Scripture.

    The alternative theory of faith is to say that Yahweh was in the presence of His cherubims and say to the community around Him, "Let us make mankind in our image" and so the grammatically singular term "Elohiym" made mankind gender male and gender female. Thus a single Yahweh is preserved.

    In the Bible we have a text poorly translated in one word, the Hebrew word is "Elohiym" and this word is never associated with angels at all, only here in this translation:

    Ps 8:5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels "Elohiym", and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

    So the verse should read

    Ps 8:5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the Elohiym , and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

    This study also investigates the meaning of "Elohiym" but for now let's leave the Hebrew word as the Hebrew word in the English. Notice Yahweh makes mankind as Elohiym, not as angels, but as close to Elohiym as one can get without giving immortality to mankind, something only GOD Himself has. One function that makes planet earth different from other unfallen worlds, is our ability to repoduce and multiply, which unfallen worlds would find difficult to do, since there is no dying, how would animals find equilibrium in a world of reproduction if there is limited space and resources? Could it be that planet earth was the first ever world created with "pro-creation" in mind, something angels have never seen before? It might help to explain why Lucifer was especially jealous of the Woman who could "pro-create" children in the image of their parents. Jesus clearly tells us that "pro-creation" is removed in heaven, and the redeemed exist like angels. There is a special reason perhaps as to why Yahweh wanted to make planet earth under this model as close to Elohiym as possible, to replenish the lost fallen angels with newer Beings, formed not as angels, but a new kind, in the image of Elohiym.

    Ge 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

    So it would make more sense to say Elohiym spoke to themselves to make mankind in our image. Mankind is in fact created as a simile of Elohiym.

    Ps 82:6 I have said, Ye are gods "Elohiym"; and all of you are children of the most High "Father-Yahweh".

    Mankind is in fact as functionally close to being Elohiym as GOD could have fashioned, except for lacking eternal divinity. Man was created mortal.

    There is only one Bible verse that references the Father "Allowaah" as "Yahweh".

    Ps 18:31 For who is God "Allowaah" save the LORD "Yahweh"? or who is a rock "tsuwr" save our God "Elohiym"?

    There are many different ways to spell this word. Muslims spell this word as "Allah" but it can also be spelled as "Allowaah" "Ellowaah" or "Eloah" and the Hebrew word means "the Strong one in the Home" or "Father" or the "highest Strong Authority". The Hebrew word does not always refer to the heavenly Father, but can also reference other false "chief father like gods" - see all references to "Eloah" in this detailed study link.

    There is only one verse that indirectly associates Jesus as Yahweh.

    Jude 1:9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord "Yahweh" rebuke thee.

    Re 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, (KJV)

    1Th 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

    Jesus was a commander of angels in a war against sinning in heaven. His name than was Michael. Notice Jesus is in charge of angels, here the term "archangel".

    Zec 3:2 And the LORD "Yahweh" said unto Satan, The LORD "Yahweh" rebuke thee, O Satan; even the LORD "Yahweh" that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?

    Whether this statement directly equates Jesus as Yahweh is debatable. A few verses on we do know the "messenger of Yahweh" is Jesus.

    Zec 3:5 And I said, Let them set a fair mitre upon his head. So they set a fair mitre upon his head, and clothed him with garments. And the "messenger of Yahweh" stood by.

    (See following webpages the reader hasn't read yet showing "who the messenger of Yahweh" is. We are nearly ready to begin this study.)

    In the next webpage we shall investigate briefly "Eloah" the Father-Yahweh and what this word means. If any theories of faith have to be useful the Hebrew words have to be consistent across ALL verses the Hebrew words are used in, not just the majority of verses as some faiths claim, but ALL verses. This implies looking up every Bible verse, but here in this study to save the reader time, only examples are considered.

    So let's consider what does EL-oah mean or Al-lah or Allowaah or the Father-Yahweh mean ?
