There is no mother of God. When we realize that God has ALWAYS existed, we can easily see He has no mother. Let’s consider a few verses that speaks to the fact that God is eternal.   Genesis 21:3 says, “And Abraham planted a grove in Beersheba, and called there on the name of the LORD, THE EVERLASTING GOD.” We read in Psalm 90:2, “Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even FROM EVERLASTING TO EVERLASTING, THOU ART GOD.” 1 Timothy 1:17 says, “Now unto THE KING ETERNAL, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.”

The Roman Catholics consider Mary to be the ‘Mother of God’ because she gave birth to Jesus. It is important that we see that she gave birth to ‘God Incarnate’, or ‘God in the flesh.’ Jesus has existed for eternity and has neither beginning nor end. He said in Revelation 1:18, “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.” Christ was the One who lived eternally in the past, He died upon the cross, He has risen from the dead and will never die again. Did Mary give birth to this eternal God? Absolutely not! How could she? However, she was blessed to be the one that was used of God to birth His Son, Jesus, into this world as flesh and blood.

Let’s consider carefully the words of Isaiah 9:6, “For unto us A CHILD IS BORN, unto us A SON IS GIVEN: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” We can readily recognize these words as referring to the Lord Jesus. Notice what we are told in this verse. “A child is born” but “a Son is given.” Luke 1:30-31 says of Mary, “And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.” This young virgin was to give birth to Jesus, who was God incarnate, or ‘God come in the flesh.’

“A Son is given” indicates that the Son already existed and was given by God. We read in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” The Son of God has existed throughout past eternity with no beginning or end. In order to save us from our sins, God GAVE His Son to come into the world to die for our sins. While Mary gave birth to the Lord Jesus, she did not give birth to the eternal Son of God. In Heaven, there is no ‘Mother of God’. The very idea is contrary to the Word of God.

Speaking of herself, Mary said in “Luke 1:47-48, “And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.” For those who claim that Mary was sinless, verse 47 shows us that Mary addressed God as her Saviour! Only sinners need a savior, so Mary acknowledges her own sin. However, we should be thankful for her willingness to be used of the Lord. The Greek word for ‘blessed’ here is “makarizo”. This word is only used twice in the Bible. In James 5:11, this word is translated ‘happy’. Mary’s desire was that throughout the ages, people would count her happy for the work the Lord called her to do when just a young woman. However, I’m sure her heart is grieved when some elevate her to a higher position than she was ever called and would address her as the ‘Mother of God’. She is NOT the mother of God. (245.10)
