For some reason, a reference to a newly released song recently showed up on my FB. I do not download music or visit music sites so I was surprised to view a music post on the feed. Who knows how FB decides content, right?
Anyway, it’s not the fact that it showed up that drew my curiosity to check out the video. It was the title of the song that stabbed me.
God Is A Woman. . .that was the title of the song. In light of today’s society I’m not shocked these brazen words are considered as truth. What pierced my heart is the fact that the words were purposefully assembled into lyrics of a song to entice people all over world (those who choose) to sing, dance and celebrate its title.
I do celebrate my womanhood. I loved knowing and feeling my baby girl growing inside me. The female body is perfectly made to nurture a human being, though I didn’t always treat my body as such and have confessed and asked forgiveness from God my eternal Father.
The Bible tells us God is a spiritual being.
God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” John 4:24
God has no physical characteristics. However, He chose to reveal Himself to us in a human form we can understand – a male. Scripture contains approximately 170 references to God as “Father.”
Jesus also refers to God using masculine pronouns: I and the Father are one.” John 10:30
For believers, it is only through Jesus Christ that God is our Father.
I suppose, there in lies the difference between me and the writers of God Is A Woman: Arianna Grande, Max Martin, Savan Kotecha, Rickard Göransson, and ILYA.
One can only assume the writers believe in a god different from mine, because my God, Yahweh, is Jesus’ eternal Father. And believers of my Father, Yahweh, receive His love, thus making us “children of God”.
Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:12-14
To spew God as a women is an infernal idea going against all truth.
This truth has been shared with mankind in the Bible for over 2500 years. We know from the gospels that Mary is the mother of Jesus, pregnant through the Holy Spirit, One of Three in the trinity of God.
This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. Matthew 1:18
Jesus had to be born of a woman, as opposed to coming from the ground like Adam, because He had to share the same flesh and blood as mankind so that He could be tempted and know the pain we all suffer.
For this reason he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted. Hebrews 2:17-18
Jesus Himself suffered, making atonement for the sin of all people.
As a believer, Jesus’ atonement covers all my sin from yesterday, today, and tomorrow. The good news for Arianna Grande, Max Martin, Savan Kotecha, Rickard Göransson, and ILYA, and all who celebrate the title of this song, is they too can accept Jesus’ suffering for their own sin and know they are welcome in His eternal kingdom.
Just as I have been forgiven the sins of my body because I confess and ask forgiveness from God my eternal Father; everyone is invited to confess and ask forgiveness of sin. It’s never too late, no matter how long ago the sin occurred or how often the sin takes place. In fact, while Jesus was on the hill at Calgary being crucified with two other men, the man on His right proclaimed:
We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.” Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom. Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.” Luke 23:41-43
Just hours before his death, a sinner was forgiven by His Savior.
Friend, don’t wait till your final breath to confess your sin and ask forgiveness from our Father. Do it now, so that you too may have peace eternal.
Ask the Father right now by praying this sinner’s prayer, copied from gotquestions.org right now:
“God, I know that I am a sinner. I know that I deserve the consequences of my sin. However, I am trusting in Jesus Christ as my Savior. I believe that His death and resurrection provided for my forgiveness. I trust in Jesus and Jesus alone as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you Lord, for saving me and forgiving me! Amen!”
