The Female Image of God in the Bible
Many people typically envision God as male, but right on the very first page of the Bible, God refers to Himself using the plural form “us.”
“Then God said, ‘Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.’ ... So God created human beings in his own image. ... male and female he created them.”
Genesis 1:26–27 (NLT)
This verse has puzzled Bible interpreters for decades. The use of “Let us” by God proves that God is not only the Father. He stated that all humankind would be made in God’s image and likeness. If God were exclusively male, then all of humanity would be male. However, our observation of both males and females on Earth tells us that God exists not only in the male image but also in the female image.
That’s why God said, “Let us make mankind.” The Bible teaches that we should believe in both God the Father and God the Mother for salvation. Bible prophecy shows that God’s children will receive eternal life from the Spirit and the Bride — God the Father and God the Mother — in the last days.
