Or indeed an ‘It’. Or is He a ‘He it’? Or a ‘She it’?
Or maybe a Hesheit? Confusing, eh? Well, not if you look closely at the matter, at least from the Bibles point of view.
But the problem is we don’t. Look closely that is. We have translations so the original text, but only in recent times has the internet given us access to the original Hebrew and Greek to help us understand more clearly.
In fact even in the translations it is fairly straightforward if you handle the words carefully, rather than jumping to conclusions.
It doesn’t help that men and women can be at loggerheads over this, the battle of the sexes as it were, Venus and Mars having a ding dong battle, rather than dancing round each other in mutual admiration, holding hands (or not).
Anyway, interestingly in the original Hebrew in the first verse of the Bible it says phonetically ‘A bereshit’. So maybe be God is a shit!!!
Or may be God just ‘shat’ down as God hath a lithp!!!
Nevertheless in the Bible God is considered as He, but this does not mean He is purely male or masculine in character.
After all, men are said to have a feminine side, and some men realise they are not in tune with it.
Of course, the truth is that God is male and female. It says as much in the first chapter of Genesis.
“Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness, …”
“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”
The word for image in Hebrew is bet-tseh’-lem in the phonetics. Which I only now realise as I type is incredibly like Bethlehem!!! Where Jesus was born!!!!!!!
Amazing! (add as many ! as you please). This is the Hebrew word below.
The symbols represent in sequence right to left, a house with a son or child (the dot in the middle), a tree or perhaps a bush, an angel, and a solid form. The last is a bit like a head with a quiff of hair!
You see, we are children of God, like trees, walking trees (we have bodies we call trunks), we are angels in spirit (some good, some bad) and we have a solid form that can be touched physically.
If we go back to the word for God, this is strictly a plural but a unified plural, equivalent to a family unit, that is a husband and wife, male and female.
Actually our understanding is that in the genes of humans, the male of the species has a ‘Y’ and an ‘X’ chromosome.
The female has 2 X of course. In the creation story the woman comes out of the man, Adam. The Lord God took an ‘X’ chromosome and fashioned the woman, whom Adam called Eve.
The female has 2 X. This is where ‘Let him (or her) who has ears to hear, let him (or her) let him (or her) hear’ comes in. X sounds like ‘eggs’. The female has two ovaries producing eggs. No doubt you will say ‘Eggactly’!!!
In the first verse of Genesis (or Genes is) the first letter in the Hebrew text is considered to be a Bet. Strictly this in incorrect as there is another before this, separate from the main text. It represents the number 1.
It is an Aleph, the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet. This is represented by a type of ‘X’ thus:
If you look closely at the Biblehub text you will see perhaps an image of slope, a hill side. There is a river coming out at the bottom left hand side and a tree to the right hand side.
The top of the tree is like an apostrophe and forms part of the other letters if you look closely.
There is one which stands on its own, the Yud, or Yod (like Yoda!!)
The Yud is the tenth letter and represents the heavenly Father as ‘floats’ as it were on the top line, floating in the heavens if you will.
The heavens from the text are considered masculine I understand.
The earth is considered feminine.
Strictly therefore we might consider as a pictogram the text saying ‘First there was an egg. In the egg was a seed, an apostrophe if you like which floating off became ‘Yud’ or ‘Yod’.
So in the beginning was God, one, both male and female in nature. They, in a sense, separated.
But they can be considered as a marriage, a marriage in the mind of God, two yet one or 1.
The theme continues in the word ‘Elohim’ or ‘Aleim’. It is considered masculine, but plural. The aleph and the yud are there, 2 of the 5 letters. The other letters can be explained but not here.
There are in fact 7 alephs in the first verse. 7 is the number of completeness.
The heavens is a covering for the earth, and represents the heavenly Father protecting the earth, the feminine side like the husband protects the wife. The earth is His beauty, His blue/green jewel in the heavens with fluffy white clouds.
But the earth, like a mother, is the source and nourisher of mans’ body, whether they are male or female. The spirit, the soul, comes from the Father. The two become one, as a Man and a Woman become one in marriage. This is why marriage is so important to Mankind as it is part of God’s own character.
It is also why the same-sex couples Act in the UK etc. is such a nonsense; it does not represent God. It is merely that whining scoundrel (I am being polite) Satan’s deceit on the nations.
Anyway, again we might write God as ‘god’. The ‘g’ represents the earth, the female, its tail down as it were into the ground.
The ‘d’ represents the heavens, the heavenly Father, its tail towards the sky or space.
In the middle is an ‘o’. This represents a bond of love between the two natures of God, the male and female.
It is like a ring, the circle of life and like a ring we use in marriage, a symbol of what marriage is intended to be.
Of course, Jesus came as a Man, and the witness of the apostles is that in Him is the fullness of God, so both male and female.
It is written ‘O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those sent to her, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were unwilling!’
In welsh hen is ‘old’, so the sense is old mother hen fussing over her chicks, protecting them under her wings.
But then the real Man has both aspects, in his genes and to be expressed in his character as protector. Perhaps a resolute protector like me!!
Whether Jesus was partly bald is highly debatable, we are not told. Whether the heavenly Father would be bald if He came to earth is also highly debatable!
As to whom Michael is as an archangel is written about, although there is very limited text in the Bible, some suggest it refers to Jesus.
The Jehovah’s witnesses think so.
This site thinks so.
This thinks not.
Anyway, if Jesus was Michael and says ‘He who has seen Me has seen the Father’, then would the Father be a bald Michael, as in like father, like son?
Now there’s a thought.
But as to whether God is He or She, well, we say He because He is simpler and easier than saying ‘Heshe’ or ‘Heesh’. Unless perhaps we have been drinking too much alcohol and have become drunk!
As in ‘For heesh a jolly good fellow’ etc etc.
I don’t recommend drunk by the way, rots the liver etc. etc.
And we say ‘He’ because the husband, the male, is responsible for the protection of the female and that’s how it was meant to be. Most women underneath all the feminist bravado (or should that be bra-vado!) want security.
But a good marriage is a partnership where husband and wife dance as it were around each other, complimenting each other in their skills, as well as complimenting each other with praise and thanks.
And in space the heavens revolve round the earth as the earth spins like a dance. The heavenly Father round the earth Mother if you will.
But please note we do not worship the earth or Mother earth. We are to cherish the earth like a mother, tend and care for her as she sustains our bodies as the heavenly Father sustains our souls, our spirits.
In fact, the heavenly Father never asked for worship as such. He really just wanted to be a friend, to have His children as friends. So it is written Abraham was the friend of God.
And don’t forget the two greatest commandments; ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’ and ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’
There is no mention of worship. But we give thanks to God because we are grateful, not because He demands it. And we can be grateful for the earth as Mother.
But stick with God as He, whilst remembering that He has His male and feminine side.
And if you think sometimes God can be a bit, well, shitty, just recall that in the beginning He ‘shat’ down. And accidents will happen!!!
A final thought. If you were to hear God laugh I think you would hear Him go ‘He, he, he!
Which I think says it all, don’t you?
