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.
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.
