Heavenly Family Related by BloodJuly 12, 2022
Family members are related by blood inherited from their parents from the moment they are born. In the same way, heavenly family members are related by blood inherited from God the Father and God the Mother. We can receive God’s blood only through the Passover of the New Covenant. The Bible teaches that the family system on this earth exists to illustrate how we can become the children of God who will inherit the everlasting Kingdom of Heaven.
The Earthly Family is a Copy and Shadow of the Heavenly Family
The Bible states that the earthly systems are only a copy and shadow of the systems that previously existed in heaven. Let us examine the following verse regarding the sanctuary built by Moses:
Hebrews 8:5 “They serve at a sanctuary that is a copy and shadow of what is in heaven…”
As written in the verse above, the sanctuary built as a place to worship God on earth was not the original sanctuary, but a copy and shadow of the one that exists in heaven. Through this example of the sanctuary, we can understand that God intends to teach us about the original systems of the invisible, spiritual world through their visible copies made on this earth. We can see this especially evident in the earthly family system. All families on this earth include a father, a mother, and their children. Since this system exists as a copy and shadow of what is in heaven, there must be a Heavenly Father, a Heavenly Mother, and Their children that make up the original Heavenly Family. Let’s confirm this fact through the Bible.
God the Father is the Original Father
First, let’s confirm the existence of the Father of our spirits.
Hebrew 12:9 “Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of our spirits and live!”
Just as you can make many copies of one original image, the Bible explains that we all have human fathers who serve as copies of the one original Father of our spirits, who is, God the Father in heaven. We can see through the words of Jesus that God “is our Father in heaven”(Mt. 6:9). This teaching of Jesus demonstrates that there is a familial relationship between us and God.
Why Do We Call God “Our Father”?
In an earthly family, only a man who has children can be called ‘father.’ Since God has the title of ‘Father,’ we can conclude that God must have children. The Bible verifies the existence of children in the heavenly family.
2 Corinthians 6:18 “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”
In the heavenly family, we can confirm that there is the Spiritual Father and, His children, who are spiritual brothers and sisters to each other. However, in the earthly family, which is a copy and shadow of the heavenly family, there must always be a mother who gives life to the children.
God the Mother is the Original Mother
It is an obvious fact that without a mother, there cannot be children, and, without children, a man can never become a father. Therefore, if human mothers exist in the earthly family, then the original family in heaven must have the Heavenly Mother who gives life to the heavenly children. The Bible confirms this fact.
Galatians 4:26 “But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.”
It is clearly stated in the Scriptures that the Jerusalem that is above is “our mother.” The word “our” here, refers to the children of God who believe in both God the Father and God the Mother. The church that denies the existence of God the Mother denies the words of God and so, cannot become God’s children. If we really long to become part of God’s family who will enter heaven, we must believe in our spiritual Father and our spiritual Mother who gives us eternal life.
Heavenly Family Related by Blood
Family members can prove they are related to each other because they share the same blood. Then, how can we prove we belong to the heavenly family, as God’s true sons and daughters? We must have God’s blood in us. God came in the flesh and established the Passover of the New Covenant to allow mankind to inherit His precious blood.
Luke 22:15-20 “And he said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer… In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.”
Jesus eagerly desired to eat the Passover because only when we eat the Passover bread and drink the Passover wine, we can inherit God’s flesh and blood. In the heavenly family, God acknowledges only those who keep the New Covenant Passover as His true sons and daughters. When we celebrate the Passover, as Jesus commanded, we can have the right to call God our Father and Mother and inherit God’s estate – the kingdom of Heaven – as God’s heirs. God Himself testifies to this fact.
Romans 8:16-17 “The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.”
Nowadays, it is only the World Mission Society Church of God that celebrates the Passover of the New Covenant. Nearly 1,600 years after the Passover was abolished in 325 A.D. at the Council of Nicaea, this truth that contains the flesh and blood of God has been restored. According to prophecy, God the Father and God the Mother have come to the earth as the Holy Spirit and the Bride to restore the truth of the New Covenant Passover so we may have Their flesh and blood and become Their heirs once again.
Revelation 22:17 “The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.”
God the Father and God the Mother, the Holy Spirit, and the Bride, make us their children by giving us Their holy flesh and precious blood through the Passover bread and wine. Just as a family can prove their relationship to one another through a blood test, the heavenly children, who will inherit the Kingdom of God, are those who can prove they have God’s blood because they keep the Passover. The church that does not celebrate Passover of the new covenant can never become the children of God who will inherit the kingdom of heaven. In this last age, it is only the World Mission Society Church of God that believes in Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother while celebrating the truth of the New Covenant Passover.
