In Messiah’s name: for those with eyes to see and ears to hear.
Intro — I was born and brought up as a Catholic and we, as children/adults, were taught many things which are not supported or revealed in the bible. One such twisted doctrine is the man-made pagan doctrine that Mary remained a virgin after giving birth to the Messiah.
In addition, we were urged and persuaded to pray the “rosary” to seek favours from a dead female who cannot see, hear, do, or think and is called the “Blessed Virgin Mary, The Mother of God” – a replica of an ancient Egyptian/Babylonian/Greek/Roman Goddess and foisted off and disguised as biblical Mary, the mother of Messiah.
For those who are not Catholics, the “rosary” consists of 50 beads (5 decades) upon which the petitioner is to repeat the same prayer to Mary. Before each of the 5 decades (10 beads) of “Hail Mary”, we were to say the “Our Father” prayer. The term “rosary” is not found in the bible, nor is the phrase “Mother of God”.
Notice how Satan uses trickery (the rosary) to deceive us. He mixes a whopping lie with the truth. The whopper is repetitive prayers to a dead person – Mary. There are no prayers offered up to her in the bible for favour or otherwise. On the other hand, prayers to the Father, our Creator, can be heard. Please understand, the truth does not contain lies, if it did, it no longer is the truth.
As a further side note, when we went to confession to reveal our sins to a human priest who is just as sinful as we were/are, we were given penance (punishment) to demonstrate our sorrow for the sins we committed.
That punishment (penance) was to pray either a decade or two of the “Hail Mary” prayer, and/or to repeat 10 of the “Our Father” prayer.
In other words, for punishment (penance) for our sins, we were to say repetitive prayers. Oh, the irony – just the opposite of what prayer is intended for, that is, using prayer as an instrument of punishment, instead of a petition to our Father, our Creator. Furthermore, in violation of what Messiah warned against, we are not to use “vain repetitions” when we pray, as the heathen do. (see Matt.6 verse 7)
Here’s the biblical proof that Mary did not remain a virgin after the birth of Messiah.
Matthew Chpt.12 verses 46 – 47 & Chpt.13 verses 55 -56
46 – While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren (brothers) stood without, desiring to speak with him.
47 – Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren (brothers) stand without, desiring to speak with thee.
Chpt.13 verses 55 -56
55 – Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses (Joseph), and Simon, and Judas?
56 – And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?
Please note, the term “brethren” does not mean “cousins” as the Catholics falsely claim and teach. Messiah had 4 brothers and sisters. We don’t know how many sisters he had, he had least two, as the term “sisters” is plural – it could mean more than two.
Conclusion: Mary did not remain a virgin. She and her husband, Joseph, had sexual unions which bore them male and female offspring – Messiah’s half-brothers and sisters.
Messiah is the son of the true living Creator-God, the great I AM – his Father – while Mary was his mother. (see Matthew 1: 18 – 25 & Luke 1: 26 – 37)
Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies and deceptions.
