Coming to Earth on a mission from God, the Queen of Heaven has endured since the creation of the Universe in order to bring the children back home. She was the Almighty’s first born, long before all others came to be. In order for her to have an equal in power to rule alongside, the Lord created her perfect mate, the King of Heaven Immanuel. Together they oversee and bring forward God’s Plan to gather those kicked out of Heaven during the revolt, and return them to their origin on Judgment Day.

 

Her lifetimes are notable and noble. From Prophetess Miriam, Princess Jephia, and Queen Mariamne she led the people through the harshest of life circumstances, while overcoming every attack the wicked spirits threw her way.

 

Mary Magdalene’s real name was Mariamne Arria, heir to the throne of Israel. She used all of her resources in order to help her husband Immanuel with his mission. Her family name was hidden in time, but the truth is she was of royal blood, heir to the throne of Israel, and a righteous leader. She wrote the books of Revelation and the Gospel attributed to the Apostle John. In reality, there was no Apostle named John.

 

Books and Treatises Mary wrote:

Three Forms of the First Thought (Trimorphic Protennoia), Authoritative Teaching, Hierarchy of the Archons, Gospel of Mary, Exegenesis of the Soul, On the Origin of the World, Pistis Sophia, Gospel of John, Epistles of John, Revelation, Secret Book (Apocryphon) of John.

 

Excerpts proving Mary the Apostle –

 

v Gospel of Mary 10.1-8; 17.7-18.20

Peter said to Mary Magdalene, “Sister, we know that the Savior loved you more than the rest of us. Tell us the words of the Savior which you remember, which you know but we do not, nor have we heard them.”

 

Mary tells them many things Immanuel shared with her about spiritual topics.

 

But Peter gets mad and says, “Did he really speak without our knowledge with a woman and not openly? Are we to turn about and listen to her? Did he prefer her to us?”

 

Then Mary wept and said to Peter, “Brother Peter, what do you think? Do you think that I have thought this up myself, or that I am lying about the Savior?”

 

Levi Matthew interrupts and says, “Peter, you have always been hot tempered. Now I see you contending against her like you do to the adversaries. If the Savior made her worthy, who are you to reject her? The Savior certainly knows her without faltering. That is why he loved her more than us.”

 

v The Gospel of Philip refers to Immanuel and Mariamne: “The companion (wife) of the Savior is Mary Magdalene. He loved her more than all the disciples and used to kiss her often on the mouth. Some of the disciples were offended by it and expressed disapproval. They said to him, “Why do you love her more than all of us?” The Savior answered and said to them “Why do I not love you like her? When a blind man and one who sees are both together in darkness, they are no different from one another. When the light comes then he who sees will see the light, and he who is blind will remain in darkness.”

 

v In the Pistis Sophia, Immanuel (Jesus) says, “Mary, you blessed one, who I will perfect in all mysteries, of those of the height, speak in openness, you whose heart is raised to the Kingdom of Heaven more than all your brothers.”

 

v The Acts of Philip refer to Mariamne: The Acts of Philip (which describes the apostle Philip as the brother of "Mariamne" or "Mariamme") that Mariamene, or Mariamne, was the actual name of Mary Magdalene. Mary/Mariam was a common name in 1st century Israel, however, not all Marys or Mariams would go by the name Mariamne, a named reserved for the royal family.

 

The Mariamne of the Acts of Philip is part of the apostolic team with Philip and Bartholomew; she teaches and baptizes. In the beginning, her faith is stronger than Philip's faith. This portrayal of Mariamne fits very well with the portrayal of Mary of Magdala in the Manichean Psalms, the Gospel of Mary, and Pistis Sophia.

 

v In Romans 16:6, the Apostle Paul thanks Mariam “who has done much for us.”

 

Legends say that in Italy Mary Magdalene visited the Emperor Tiberius (who was a relative) and told him about Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection. She held up an egg at the dining table and said, “Christ has risen!” Tiberius responded that no one could rise from the dead anymore than the egg she held could turn red. The egg turned red. Tiberius was convinced and by her urging, removed Pilate from Jerusalem to Gaul where he later suffered a terrible illness and painful death.

 

Traditions in France say that Mary, Lazarus, Philip and James arrived on a rudderless boat with a small child. They had been expelled from Israel and put on the boat to die at sea, but came safely to the shore in France where they established Christian communities across the country. Lazarus and Philip were her brothers and James was Immanuel’s brother also called Joseph of Arimathea. She performed miraculous healings, baptisms, aided in fertility and childbearing (midwife), taught about the mysteries of Heaven, and raised the dead. The secret tradition of her healing arts exists today in France and its roots can be traced back to Mary Magdalene.

 

Mary had always been associated with God’s daughter named Wisdom, represented by the Moon, Sun and a halo of stars. The attributes of Wisdom, the Queen of Heaven were described in depth by Solomon in his book called Wisdom.

 

In later days the male clergy gave credit for the work of Mary Magdalene to Immanuel’s mother, also named Mary. His mother was indeed a great woman, but she was not the Queen of Heaven. This was done at a time when the leaders of the new “church” were all males and would not accept the teachings from Mary Magdalene because they did not want strong women leaders among their ranks. So in their extreme selfishness they outright lied and exaggerated about the Magdalene in order to fit their evil scheme. She was not the prostitute in the story of Luke, in reality the clergy combined the story about the prostitute with a story about Mary washing Immanuel’s feet in order to take away from her honorable lifetime.

 

Many inconsistencies are obvious when a study is made of the scriptures that speak of her lifetime. The “Beloved Disciple” was added into the text to replace Mary’s name in several places. Some of these examples include:

v Gospel of John 13:23-26 “The disciple whom Jesus loved.” She is sitting with Immanuel during the Last Supper and has her head on his chest when Peter asks her to ask Immanuel for the identity of his betrayer.

 

v John 19:25-27 The Beloved Disciple is at the foot of the cross along with the mother of Immanuel, and other women including Mary Magdalene. Immanuel tells the Beloved Disciple to take care of his mother. This disciple took his mother into her home. This passage adds “Beloved Disciple” alongside Magdalene in order to infer another person’s presence.

 

v John 20:1-11 Peter and the disciple whom Jesus loved run to the empty tomb after being told by Magdalene that his body was missing. Mary was the first to see Christ had risen. She went back to tell the other disciples like Immanuel told her to do, then ran back with Peter to show him the good news.

 

v John 21:7 Several disciples are out fishing after Christ’s resurrection. The Beloved Disciple is the first to notice that the man speaking with them was Immanuel.

 

v John 18:15-16 After the arrest of Immanuel, “the other disciple (Mary)” is allowed to enter the courtyard of the high priest with him. This was because she was his wife and her father was Herod’s son Aristobolus, she was known by the Romans and the priests as one of the royal household.

 

This brings us to her family tree. Mary’s real name was Mariamne Arria, she was of direct line from Queen Alexandra Salome. Her grandfather was King Herod “the Great.” Her parents were Bernice and Aristobulus IV, the eldest son of Herod the Great and his royal Hasmonean wife Queen Mariamne I. After Aristobulus IV's recall to Jerusalem from education in Rome, he married Bernice, daughter of Herod's sister Salome and second husband Costobarus. King Herod executed Aristobulus IV in 7 BCE at the age of 24 leaving five children Josephus refers to as "infants", one of his children was Mary Magdalene. "Aristobulus IV had Herod Chalcis, Herod Agrippa, and Aristobulus V, his sons, and Herodias and Mariamne, his daughters, all by Bernice, Salome's daughter." Josephus, Jewish Wars, Book I 28:1

 

Her father Aristobulus was murdered by his father Herod in 6 BC, when Mariamne was less than one year old. She was born the same year as Immanuel in 6 BC, the year of “the Massacre of the Innocents” in Bethlehem, recorded in Matthew 2:16. Herod took in Aristobulus’ children which included Mariamne to raise as his own because his conscience bothered him. He prayed that these children would become the rulers of Israel after his death. Little did he know that she would go against him and his planned marriages for her, and marry Immanuel instead.

 

Mary and Immanuel were equals, the King and Queen of Heaven came to help mankind return to Heaven. The truth about the couple was hidden deeply in the vaults of the Vatican because the men in power could not afford strong women in their ranks. They knew that in order to discredit Magdalene they would have to lie and give her credits to someone close to Immanuel, so they chose his mother, also named Mary.

 

Immanuel and Mariamne had a daughter, named Sarah in Hebrew and in Latin her name was Mariamne Caerina Arria. Sarah married into the Emperor’s line of the Roman Empire.

 

Connection to the Holy Spirit world is the bridge that Immanuel came to build with his lifetime on Earth. Together Immanuel and Mariamne laid the foundation for true Christianity. After he was crucified he went down into Hell and defeated the demons on their own turf, then opened up the gates so those who wanted to could leave their place of torment. Up to that point in history, no bridge had been built for the repentant to cross. Immanuel and the Great Army beat down the oppressors and built the bridge. It then became a matter of free will for those who so choose to cross out of their captors dungeons. This was Immanuel’s mission. While Mariamne stayed behind to carry out the ministry of the Holy Spirits, supporting the bridge with a strong foundation on Earth. A team effort. God’s Son and Daughter came together in that lifetime 2000 years ago to fulfill the Plan of Salvation.

 

The Daughter of God, Queen of Heaven has incarnated since the beginning of time in order to bring home the children. It has been her duty life after life to live among the people, slowly bringing them to an understanding with the aid of the Almighty to what the purpose of life truly is. Her agreement was to work among the fallen up to Judgment Day, at which time all will stand before the Judgment Council to review their lifetimes.

Throughout history she has made several appearances. A few were as Astarte/Ashtoreth the Queen of Heaven to whom the Canaanites and Israelites had burned incense and poured libations. Shekina the Hebrew Goddess of the Kabbala. Ishtar the Great Mother, the goddess of fertility and the Queen of Heaven. Diana was called the Mother goddess and Queen of Heaven.

But unfortunately they began to make offerings to her instead of God their Creator. As seen in Jeremiah 7:17-19 “See not what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem? The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the Queen of Heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger. Do they provoke me to anger? says the LORD: do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces? Therefore thus says the Lord GOD; Behold, mine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched.”

Good King Solomon prayed for Wisdom, because he knew that she was God’s first born Daughter and she would always guide him on the right path to Father God. This is the beginning of magical wisdom; Wisdom uses good magic, the way God creates. Solomon recognized his sister Princess Jephia to be Wisdom incarnate.

v Wisdom of Solomon 8

1) Wisdom reaches mightily from one end of the earth to the other,
and she orders all things well.
2)  I loved her and sought her from my youth,
and I desired to take her for my bride,
and I became enamored of her beauty.
3)  She glorifies her noble birth by living with God,
and the Lord of all loves her.
4)  For she is an initiate in the knowledge of God,
and an associate in His works.
21) But I perceived that I would not possess wisdom
unless God gave her to me --
and it was a mark of insight to know whose gift she was --
so I appealed to the Lord and besought him,
and with my whole heart I said:

v Wisdom of Solomon 9

"O God of my fathers and Lord of mercy,
Who hast made all things by Your word,
2) and by Your wisdom has formed man,
to have dominion over the creatures You have made,
3)  and rule the world in holiness and righteousness,
and pronounce judgment in uprightness of soul,
4)  give me the wisdom that sits by Your throne,
and do not reject me from among Your servants.
5)  For I am Your servant, the son of Your servant,
a man who is weak and short-lived,
with little understanding of judgment and laws;
6)  for even if one is perfect among the sons of men,
yet without the wisdom that comes from thee
he will be regarded as nothing.

Slowly the memory of her was hidden, so that once again the people could return to the true worship of the One God. For truly there is no one greater than He. Mankind has tried to make offerings to other spirits, but in reality it is only correct to worship the Creator, Almighty God. He has many names throughout history, but He is the only One to whom sacrifices, prayers and offerings should be dedicated.

Shekina will return and walk the Temple in Jerusalem. Right before Immanuel returns with the Great Army to wipe out the wicked and renew the Covenant with the righteous. Miracles and renewal will prove the Mahdi is Shekina, the Great Mother returned to guide her children Home.
