Abraham's Family History and Heavenly Mother

By studying the history of Abraham’s family, we will gain a better understanding of who can enter the Kingdom of Heaven and become conscious of the existence and graveness of God the Mother. Firstly, let us read the parable of the rich man and Lazarus.

Abraham’s Family and Heavenly Family

Luke 16:19-24 “There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores. “The time came when the beggar died, and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried. In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. So, he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’

When Lazarus died, he was carried to Abraham’s side. However, if we are saved and enter Heaven, whose side will we be carried to?  We will be carried to God’s side. Furthermore, who can only be called ‘Father’ in Heaven? It is God. However, in this parable Abraham was called ‘Father’. Through this, we can understand that Abraham represents God, our Heavenly Father. So, Abraham’s heir who inherited his estate represents God’s heirs who will inherit the Kingdom of Heaven. The history of Abraham’s family is not just mere family history but a prophecy teaching us about the qualification to inherit the Kingdom of Heaven.

Abraham’s Heir— Three Candidates

In the crucial process of determining the heir of Abraham’s estate, there were three candidates. The first was Eliezer the servant, followed by Ishmael, then Isaac. Abraham had initially thought that Eliezer would be his heir.

Genesis 15:2-4 But Abram said, “Sovereign Lord, what can you give me since I remain childless and the one who will inherit my estate is Eliezer of Damascus?” And Abram said, “You have given me no children; so, a servant in my household will be my heir.” Then the word of the Lord came to him: “This man will not be your heir, but a son who is your own flesh and blood will be your heir.”

What did God say concerning Eliezer? God said Eliezer was not the heir but a son from his own body would become his heir. Therefore, Eliezer was cast out as a candidate. What did God say about Ishmael?

Genesis 16:15-16 So Hagar bore Abram a son, and Abram gave the name Ishmael to the son she had borne. Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar bore him Ishmael.

Hagar was the maidservant of Sarah, Abraham’s wife. Ishmael was born from Abraham’s body but not from the free woman Sarah. Seeing that Ishmael was born of his own body, he wanted Ishmael to become his heir.

Genesis 17:18-19 And Abraham said to God, “If only Ishmael might live under your blessing!” Then God said, “Yes, but your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you will call him Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him.

Ishmael could not become Abraham’s heir, even though he was born of Abraham. Instead, God said the son born of Sarah would become the heir of Abraham, and therefore made Isaac Abraham’s heir. Ishmael was cast out as a candidate. Now let us find out the reason why Isaac was chosen to become the heir, among the three candidates.

First let us think about Eliezer. His father was not the free man Abraham, and his mother was not the free woman Sarah. He could not become the heir. Second, Ishmael was born of the free man Abraham but, as his mother was a slave woman, he could not become the heir either. As Isaac was born of the free man Abraham, and of the free woman Sarah, he could inherit Abraham’s estate.

In Israel, the firstborn son from the paternal line was given the birthright. If the decision was based on this law, Ishmael would have become Abraham’s heir. Now, Isaac was chosen to be the heir. This proves that the maternal line was the decisive factor. Isaac inherited Abraham’s estate because he was the child of Sarah— the free woman.

The History of Abraham’s family is not just history, but it is a prophecy of who can become God’s heir (inherit the kingdom of Heaven). This is because Abraham represents God the Father and Abraham’s heir, God’s heirs. Therefore, to enter the Kingdom of Heaven as heirs of God, we must be the children of a free Mother. Then, do we have our Heavenly Mother who is free?

Galatians 4:26 But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.

Galatians 4:28 Now you, brothers, and sisters, like Isaac, are children of promise.

The Bible testifies that Jerusalem in heaven above is our Mother. Whom do the people of God have? We have our Heavenly Jerusalem Mother, who is free. Why do the Scriptures say that we are children of promise like Isaac? How did Isaac inherit Abraham’s estate? It was through his mother. In the same way, we will certainly inherit the Kingdom of  Heaven if we believe in Heavenly Mother.

Galatians 4:30-31 But what does Scripture say? “Get rid of the slave woman and her son, for the slave woman’s son will never share in the inheritance with the free woman’s son.” Therefore, brothers and sisters, we are not children of the slave woman, but of the free woman.

Can the slave woman’s son share in the inheritance? Never! Unless we become children who believe in Heavenly Mother we cannot inherit the Kingdom of God which our souls long for. For this reason, Heavenly Mother has come to the Earth. If we truly desire to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, let us receive Heavenly Mother, whom the Bible testifies about and be saved.
