Mary: Queen of Heaven

Mary: Read Jeremiah chapter 7 and 44 and see what God says about praying to the Queen of Heaven.

Bread From Heaven: We do not pray TO Mary in the same sense that we pray TO God. God is able to answer our prayers. Mary and the Saints are able to intercede for us just like any other human person that we ask to pray for us TO GOD.

1) Mary is not an idol. She is a human alive in Heaven.

2) She actually is the Queen Mother of Heaven because Jesus is King.

3) The Queen of Heaven mentioned in Jeremiah could not possibly have been referring to Mary, since she had not even been born yet, and neither had her parents or their parents.

4) The Queen of Heaven referred to in Jeremiah was a mythical pagan goddess. Mary was not Pagan. She was not mythical. She is not a goddess.

5) “All generations shall call me blessed.” Mary declared under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Which Church still calls Mary the Blessed Mother? Does your Church? How will you answer when you stand before Jesus and He asks you why you did not?

6) Catholics honor Mary. We do not worship her. We honor her in obedience to the Commandments to honor our Father and Mother. Since we are a part of the body of Christ, Mary is also our mother. And we are told in Revelation 12

17 Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring —those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.

      Mary, Queen of Heaven

      by Steve Ray on April 28, 2012

      A while ago a man called in to say my argument for the Assumption of Mary including references from the Old Testament was wrong.

      I had quoted 1 Kings 2:19 where Solomon had raised his mother up to a throne to be Queen of the Kingdom. He said that was the ONLY case of a mother being a queen in the Old Testament.

      He prefaced his comment by saying that he knew the Old Testament well and it does not support what I had asserted.

      Well, if he knew his Old Testament as well as he said, he would realize I was correct.

      In the Old Testament, the kings of Judah had queens but the queens were not their wives — but their mothers — with one exception of the queen being a grandmother.

      Solomon had 1,000 wives and concubines — but he only had one mother. Click here to read the section on The Great Lady or Queen Mother in Roland de Vaux’s book Ancient Israel: Its Life and Institution.

      Mary, Queen of Heaven

  2. You stated that mary was the Queen of Heaven to referance Jerimiah ,
    Jer_7:18 The children gather wood, the fathers kindle fire, and the women knead dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven. And they pour out drink offerings to other gods, to provoke me to anger.
    Jer_44:17 But we will do everything that we have vowed, make offerings to the queen of heaven and pour out drink offerings to her, as we did, both we and our fathers, our kings and our officials, in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem. For then we had plenty of food, and prospered, and saw no disaster.
    Jer_44:18 But since we left off making offerings to the queen of heaven and pouring out drink offerings to her, we have lacked everything and have been consumed by the sword and by famine.”
    Jer_44:19 And the women said, “When we made offerings to the queen of heaven and poured out drink offerings to her, was it without our husbands’ approval that we made cakes for her bearing her image and poured out drink offerings to her?”
    Jer_44:25 Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: You and your wives have declared with your mouths, and have fulfilled it with your hands, saying, ‘We will surely perform our vows that we have made, to make offerings to the queen of heaven and to pour out drink offerings to her.’ Then confirm your vows and perform your vows!

    Most Scholors agree and that would be Catholic Scholors also , that the Queen of Heaven reffered to in Jerimiah is the astral deity named Astrarte , whom the Assrains and Babyloians belived aide fertility, She was though popular in Judah for many years 2 Kings 23::4-14 and Zeph. 1:5. Your Claim is not founded.

    Rev. 12:17
    The Women is Isreal or the seed of Eve (Fullfillment of the Genisis prophcey 3:15, her offspring is the church.
    Satan having fail to destory the Messiah and His Mother Isreal (Eve) see Rev 12:1-2

    This is clearly not Mary.

    • Robo,
      I totally agree with you that the Queen of Heaven referred to in Jeremiah is NOT MARY the Mother of God.

      I also totally agree that the Queen of Heaven in Jeremiah refers to a pagan deity, very possibly Astarte.

      What claim of mine is unfounded?

      I disagree with your interpretation of Rev. 12. It most clearly seems to be Mary. But of course the details differ from the Nativity story. And it could also be referring to Israel. But it is certainly NOT CLEAR that it is not Mary.

    • World hunger, abortion, rights being taken away nothing!!! Let a Catholic say something about Mary and the whole world goes nuts!! Rev. 12 is most clearly Mary and it is not Chapter 12 that proves it but Chapter 11! When the Bible was written there were no chapters and verses. It flowed and that is how one must read the Bible. To understand the Bible one must understand the foreshadowing and “types” presented to us in the OT. Which Protestants are just now catching onto, and the Catholic Church has known for over 2000 years. In Rev. 11-19 John saw the “ark of the covenant.” The “ark of the new covenant” was Mary!! Inside of her womb was contained everything that the ark of the covenant contained in the OT. The ark of the covenant in the OT foreshadowed, her being the ark of the new covenant. What is in the OT is in the NT you just have to know how to find it! Such as 3000 were lost in the OT, 3000 were saved in the NT. The Slaughtering of the Innocent in the NT, also happened in the OT. So on and so forth as I do not have the space to write them all. Mary also spoke prophecy when she said, “All generations would call her blessed.” Hence the Rosary. Elizabeth called her what? Mother of my Lord. She is the mother of God Man. She is the mother of a King, which would make her a Queen Mother. She is the mother of the King of Kings. The woman in Jer. foreshadowed her. God is our Father because of Jesus. She is our Spiritual Mother because of Jesus. Do you people honestly think, a woman who from her mother’s womb was kept pure and without stain of original sin, so she could give birth to God Man , would not be honored in heaven? Mary’s feet did not even touch the floor for the first three years of her life. She was raised in the Temple and girls raised in the temple took a vow of virginity for the rest of their lives. So I guess the mother of God Man lied to God and had other kids also. She was born for one purpose only. To give birth to a King. God’s only Son. She is in over 364 places in the Bible, being foreshadowed. We are her children as Rev. 12 says. We are the rest of her offspring because of Christ. Satan makes war on us daily, not just on Israel. When the dragon in Chapter 12 was trying to devour her child this was the flight to Egypt during the Slaughter of the Innocent. In Chapter 12 “the earth came to help her.” This is when they went to Egypt. Piece it together, please!! She is our mother, and the worst she is going to do is love you. God Bless, SR

  3. Mary has no Deity if she did their would be a Gospel of Mary Mother Of Jesus , I don’t think theirs even apocrypha on it , Your observation is a Fantasy , Only Jesus Christ the Messiah can Give you Salvation, Sanctification , Forgiveness of Sin. You dishonor the Early Church Fathers, You devalue the Apostle Creed. By worshiping and idolizing Mary. You Devalue the Cross and thee Blood Jesus shed for you. You devalue the Resurrection by saying Mary has a higher state in Heaven than Jesus Sits at the Right hand of God Not Mary. We don’t even know if Mary was a virgin It sounds like your saying Jesus married His Mother, The Bride is the Church not Mary.
    Were do you get your Information. I think you need council with a Priest. And a reality Check.
    Im not saying this to attack you , Im saying you really need Gidinace here,

    • Robo,

      Mary is NOT Deity. She is NOT a goddess in the Catholic Faith. That is a Protestant lie. We ONLY worship the Holy God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

      The Catholic Faith proclaims that Salvation, Sanctification , Forgiveness of Sin comes through Jesus Christ, not Mary. You have heard lies about the Catholic Church.

      We do NOT WORSHIP AND IDOLIZE MARY. Another lie says we do.

      Jesus did not marry anyone and what on earth made you think I sounded like Jesus married His mother? I never ever said Mary was the Bride of Jesus. The Church is the Bride of Christ. Did you even read the post?

    • Robo,

      Nowhere did BFHU claim the things that you are saying. Oh Lord help us. “Devalue” Robo? I guess Jesus “devalued” Himself by loving His own mother? Have you “devalued” all of the things you stated by loving yours?

      We love her Robo. She is a very special Lady. If you want to continue to say that we think she is a Deity, go for it. Know when you do, that you are spreading a lie. A lie which is in your own head. It seems to me like in doing that, you yourself, “devalue” everything. After all is that not one of God’s commandments that we shall not lie!

      Where do you “get your information Robo?” “I think you need council with a Priest.” “A reality check.” “Some guidance.” So you can learn the truth about how Catholic’s view and feel about The Blessed Mother. What the Church truly does teach on this. What we believe.

      Then you can cease to “devalue” all Christ did for us, because you will know the truth and stop lying about us. “Not trying to attack you.” God Bless, SR

  4. Poor Mary…must be feeling so guilty for all the misguided, although very sincere, followers in Catholicism. How many Queens are there in Heaven, if the issue is which is the right one? bfhu says the old testament one is false but their new testament one is true?? Two contradictory statements cannot both be true. They can both be false, or one true and the other false; but cannot BOTH be true. I lean towards the both-are-false premise.

  5. You are right. Mary is not the Queen of Heaven referred to in Jeremiah.
    She was not even in existence at the time as I said in the post. But, Mary is the mother of the King of Heaven and therefore she is the Queen Mother of Heaven or Queen of Heaven.

    This is another case where the New Testament fulfills the Old Testament in a much better way..

    • bfhu, hi…have you considered a career in politics? What you say contradicts what you do; and guess which one we are bound to believe? Jokes aside..I have another question. If Mary was not the Queen of Heaven referred to in Jeremiah (because she was not in existence at the time), when did she begin to exist…at the time of Jesus?? Does that mean that God the Father and all the old testament people pre-existed the Queen of Heaven? King Jesus was around for eternity, just incarnated around 2012 years ago…so he pre-existed his own Queen Mother? How would you spin this one?

      • Dear Jonah,

        Yes, God the Father and all the old testament people absolutely existed before Mary, Queen of Heaven.

        Mary began to exist about 15-16 years before the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. She began to exist at the time of her Immaculate Conception as a result of the union of her parents and God saving her from the stain of original sin.

        Yes, Jesus the second person of the Trinity, is eternal and therefore existed before the mother of His Flesh. There was no Queen of Heaven before Mary’s Assumption into Heaven.
