The Sabbath Reveals God our Mother

Today I got the chance to speak to my old friend Jimmy, whom I had grown up with. I was very excited to meet him because I wanted to share with him the Good News about Ahn Sahng Hong the second coming Christ and Heavenly Mother's salvation.

We met and began to catch up after not meeting for such a long time. Then finally the question came up. "So what have you been up to lately?"
This was my chance. So I asked him if he still believed in God. At first we has taken aback by the question and responded with "Why?" So I told him... because there is a great mystery in the bible... God our Mother who saves us. His faced looked back at me with an expression of puzzlement. "You mean God our Father right?" he responded with a slight smile. I put myself in his shoes... of course he's going to say that, anyone would. Our whole lives we grew up only hearing about "Our Father in heaven" but never about there being a "Heavenly Mother". But the good thing about my good ol' pal Jimmy is that he believed the bible. So he said "what makes you so sure that there's also a Mother God? I've known God my whole life and now you're telling me there's a Mother? You're saying I don't know God?"

I could understand why Jimmy was getting defensive and I didn't really want to upset him so I prayed in my mind for God to give me wisdom and then it dawned on me... I asked him "Well I too only knew about the existence of God the Father that is until I began to keep the Sabbath at the Church of God. According to the bible Christ said,

[Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him.] John 14:21

At this Jimmy was shocked. "but I keep his commands and still I've never heard of God the Mother!" So I continued explaining to him that without keeping God's Sabbath Holy it is impossible to know who God is. From the beginning of time God showed himself to those who kept his commandment of the Sabbath.

[I am the LORD your God; follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. Keep my Sabbaths holy, that they may be a sign between us. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God."] Ezekiel 20:19-20"

"If we keep the Sabbath we can recognize who is our true God. The reason why you've never heard of God the Mother is because you've never kept the Sabbath."

I really wanted my friend to realize how God's commandment of the Sabbath is such a precious blessing in order to realize who God is. Most people only believe in God but never really study the bible or obey Gods commandments that let us know who God is. Through this I also realized that the only reason why I know about God the Mother is because of the promise he made to those keeping the Sabbath holy. How blessed we are to know true God!
