Murder In The 1st Degree

by Dr. Aminata Njeri

I loved reading the Nancy Drew series as a youth.  Nancy Drew was a fictional American teenager known as the girl detective who loved to solve mysteries.  The book I am writing shows the identity of Holy Spirit acknowledged as the third person of the Trinity. You could call me a detective of sorts. The television show CSI: Crime Scene Investigation is a forensics crime drama television series. CSI: Crime Scene Investigation follows a team of crime scene investigators, as they use physical evidence to solve murders. Thus, I am the BSI: Bible Scripture Investigator. There was a crime committed. The murder of the knowledge of our Divine Mother. I’ve found clues in the Bible that verify the identity of the Holy Spirit in the Godhead. She is our Holy Mother living with our Father and Jesus Christ the Son in Heaven.     

However, Joseph’s wife Mary is still (why I don’t know) called the virgin Mary. She was the earth and birth mother of baby Jesus. In addition, Catholicism teaches that Mary is our mother in heaven, not so! Proving Holy Spirit as our Divine Mother in scripture is my mystery to solve.  I am the Good News Detective, the Spiritual Gumshoe, or the Bible Scripture Investigator. I follow clues in scripture to uncover the truth.    

They unearthed all that

According to ancient manuscripts discovered at Nag Hammadi; The first followers of Jesus were Jewish Christians.  They worshipped Holy Spirit, a member of the Godhead as Mother.  But today our Divine Mother remains hidden. They cloak her within the pages of scripture. Why is this?  The early church fathers, Bible scholars of old, were the first redactors and editors of the ancient manuscripts.  We find texts altered. For example, the Divine Feminine covered up or removed from the scriptures. Bible scholars today, for instance, follow in that tradition. They do this despite knowing the truth.  They keep Mother Holy Spirit hidden, and as a result, knowledge of her is a mystery to the church.  Our biblical teachers determined that our Heavenly Mother remains a secret.   

Why?

There are questions that lack answers. Why did the early church fathers change Holy Spirit from She to He? What’s the fear when we confess Holy Spirit as our Heavenly Mother? The Godhead as the Divine Family, how did this become an issue? The scholarship and commentaries of Eurocentric males call for a transformed approach. Sexism continues to be the norm in most of our churches. Since Jesus Christ hung bled and died on the cross, redemption is available for both men and women. But women are liable for the sin of Eve. Let us move beyond the notion that men should rule and women must be obedient.  There ought to be different views at the theology table, with fresh minds unafraid to oppose the status quo.

Hidden in plain sight

Mother Holy Spirit hides in plain sight. But they committed a crime.  It was murder in the 1st degree.  They killed the knowledge of Mother Holy Spirit right out of scripture. They have conditioned us not to see Her when we read Her. These Bible scholars know better yet, they continue to hide the identity of Holy Spirit. “Hear She Is On Earth As She Is In Heaven, Mother Holy Spirit” is the title of the book I am writing. I will show how Mother Holy Spirit is the second person of the Godhead, not the third person of the Trinity. Here is an example from scripture:  

In the Book of Genesis chapter 1 verses 26 & 27, we find a clue:

Then God said, “Let us make humankind in our image, after our likeness, so they may rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move on the earth.” God created humankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them, male and female he created them. (Gen 1:26-27 NET)

The Lord God held a design meeting on creating humankind in the twenty-six verse, who was He addressing? God said, “let us make” “in our image and in our likeness” what do we see?  Lord God used whose image and likeness to create the male.  The male model was who? God created the female but, after whose image and likeness, who is the Heavenly female model? What relation is there with “according to their kind” in Genesis 1:11,12, 21, and 24 and “in our image and likeness” in verse 26?

Meet Your New Family

People who receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior are born again into the family of God and are now children of God. I consider this as a family relationship.  What makes up a family?  God is our Father and Jesus His son, our Lord and Savior, who is missing from this family equation?  “from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named” Ephesians 3:15 NKJV.  The scripture in Ephesians speaks of the family in heaven (not families).    

The nuclear family includes the father, mother, and child.  Are we to presume God is a single parent?  I say no, and the scriptures will bear witness to this truth. But I am just getting started. There are lots of questions and a bunch of clues to follow. Evidence of Mother Holy Spirit is found from Genesis to Revelations.  

Taking up the mantle of Nancy Drew, I have my magnifying glasses and prepared to do the work. This BSI shall solve the mystery that identifies the Holy Spirit. Our Mother in Heaven is real. She exists. People who say She doesn’t exist need to stop lying. Mother Holy Spirit has always been since before the beginning. You can’t see Her, because they dress Her in masculine pronouns and she wears men’s clothing. You didn’t know of Her existence because they camouflage words in scripture.

Restored To Her Rightful Position

A murder happened around the “knowledge” of Mother Holy Spirit.  A crime took place, and it was murder in the 1st degree! Male scholars and bible commentators killed knowledge of our Heavenly Mother. This is a murder mystery to solve.  I’m not alone; a diverse group of people is working on solving this.  We will restore the knowledge of the Divine Feminine.  Our Holy Spirit Mother is not a goddess. She is God. I have the proof.  It’s right here in scripture.

Obviously, They Didn’t Get The Memo

Social conditioning is such a demon! I was just thinking “was the movie ‘The Matrix’ a piece of fiction or is it a reality in disguise?” It’s amazing how so many women and men refuse to think for themselves. God gave each of us the capacity to think, use our minds, and decide accordingly.

Unfortunately for some women who desire to exercise their spiritual gifts; some men in church leadership tell women what they can and cannot do. They expect women to listen, accept without question whatever is being preached or taught. We are knee-deep and neck high in mansplained doctrine. In many denominations, women still are not in leadership positions. Scripture says, “Let your women keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak; but they are to be submissive, as the law also says.” (1Co 14:34 NKJV) Men in leadership use the scriptures for oppressing women. For instance, “If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church.” (1Co 14:35 NIV)  

Know what from what

This scripture is suspect. The church is a New Testament phenomenon and the ‘Law’ is an Old Testament mandate. The fact of the matter is that the church did not exist when the law was in effect. You could call the Apostle Paul a flip-flopper. Paul says one thing to one church and says another thing to a different church. “For sin shall no longer be your master because you are not under the law, but under grace.” (Rom 6:14 NIV) Does ‘Grace’ apply to men only and the ‘Law’ to women? Inquiring minds need to know.

Mother Holy Spirit is the giver of spiritual gifts

Who does the man think he is, to deny the woman her right to exercise her God-given spiritual gifts? “God also testified to it by signs, wonders, and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.” (Heb 2:4 NIV) Mother Holy Spirit distributes Her gifts to men and women alike. Why do men think they can deny the woman from using them? When a woman is held back from using her gift from Mother Holy Spirit, she is most miserable.

Women too are free indeed

If the woman is anointed by Mother Holy Spirit to preach, teach, pastor, evangelize or prophesy, men ought to move out of the way. Their arms (the men) are too short to box with God, our Holy Mother anyway. True enough there are many scriptures in the Bible that contradict what our Lord and Savior have hung, bled, died and rose again for. God does not have favorites. “Therefore, if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36 NKJV) To God’s women everywhere, you are free, free indeed! The bottom line is that Jesus Christ is the ultimate authority, not Paul or Peter, Jesus! As for all other men, the apostles of old, and men of today, obviously, they didn’t get the memo.

Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child

by Dr. Aminata Njeri

Scripture teaches in the Gospel of John “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. (John 1:12-13 NKJV).

There is so much to unpack in these two verses. Let me just put this out there… One of my pet peeves is when I hear preachers today quoting from the KJV. “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” (John 1:12-13 KJV)

Words are everything

Sons of God, seriously? This really skeeves me out. Why you may ask? It’s all about the language. Words have meaning, and meaning becomes concretized in the psyche. Words matter! What you say, is what you create! So when you read/teach/preach from an archaic translation of the bible with the antiquated language you are perpetuating the “isms,” sexism in particular. I’m just sayin. Ok, rant is over, back to my point.

Those of us who received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, now have the right to become “children” of God. How? It’s not by the will of the flesh, nor by the will of man. Scripture says, “but of God.” The word “of” in the Greek is “ek” and means “from, or out of.” But there’s more… “who were born” the word born “gennao” in Greek is the key to it all. It means: to procreate (properly, of the father, but by extension of the mother). In other words, it takes two to make a baby or child, naturally but most importantly spiritually.

It’s more than just a feeling

We know we have God our Father, but where my heavenly Mother be? Where She at? Why don’t we have a heavenly mother? Or do we? Many Christians feel like they are missing something, but can’t put their finger on what that something is. It’s gonna take a minute to show you how to recognize Mother Holy Spirit in scripture. Just know that I feel your pain because it was for a long time my pain as well. Sometimes I feel like a motherless child in the spirit realm. That’s why I sing, “Sometimes I feel like a motherless child, a long way from home.

Mother Holy Spirit – Yes She Is God

by Dr. Aminata Njeri

Presenting to some and introducing to others, Mother Holy Spirit! Yes, She is real. She exists. Mother Holy Spirit was in the beginning, with the Father and Son. Mother Holy Spirit is the second member of the Godhead.  I know what you must think, “They taught me something else.” I’m sure this sounds confusing. When we dig deeper into scripture, this will make sense. Mother Holy Spirit is God! Don’t call Her a goddess. She is God!

Holy Spirit Mother?

Not that long ago, like some of you, I was clueless. I never heard of a Holy Mother in heaven. Nor that the Holy Spirit is the Divine Feminine in the Godhead.  In the Trinity, they define Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as male. But the mansplained Trinity is not scriptural. Scripture teaches us who the three are. Father, Holy Spirit, and the Son make up the “Godhead.” They define the Holy Spirit as the third “person” of the Trinity. This person has no identity unlike Father and Son, so why use the gender pronoun ‘he’?  They have taught us that this third person (who is without personhood) is the “force, or “power” that comes from God the Father. Which is it?  Is the Holy Spirit a person or a “power, a force” or, is the Holy Spirit considered an “it” as used in scripture, that comes from God?

Theological Tongue-Twister

There is the whole “one God” thing. Try explaining the one God with three persons and one of the Divine Beings lacking personhood… ugh! One God, three persons? The Father is God, and Jesus Christ is God and scripture teaches us that Holy Spirit is God, right? The answers are within scripture. What are your thoughts regarding Holy Spirit as our heavenly Mother? I’m excited! Stay tuned. There is much to share about Mother Holy Spirit. Yes, She is God!
