Amy McCutcheon’s Testimony~

Amy's testimony "Jesus is My Mother"

This is one of Amy McCutcheon’s graphics of Jesus called “Beloved”. Sadly Amy passed away Sept. 4, 2010 at the age of 53. She inspired so many of us with her beautiful heart and her art.

On Dec. 31, 2008 Amy shared her testimony in a Myspace group.  Amy was genuine, her love for the Lord was so great.  Her testimony really touched my heart and I saved it. The Lord recently started pressing on my heart to share it. I pray it will reach those in need and help them find HIS comfort as Amy did. Jesus’ nurturing LOVE showed Amy the mother in Him.

Amy’s testimony “Jesus Is My Mother”

“When I was a little baby I lost my mom most likely due to suicide. Having three children under the age of five and a son who only lived twenty-four hours, she had postpartum depression and was found floating dead in the creek outside my grandmother’s house at the age of twenty-seven. I was told when I was a child that it was most likely suicide and not an accidental slip that caused her death. Over the years my aunts have argued as to whether or not her death was a suicide but in any case I didn’t have a mom growing up. My dad was an absentee father. He worked on the tugs in NYC and when he was home he would drink a lot. I share this so you will understand how I came to discover a very important aspect about Christ. When I decided that I wanted to know the Lord in a more personal way one of the things I began to experience is the “mothering” of Christ. I had always denied the importance of having a mother. I concluded I didn’t miss what I never had. I didn’t understand the importance of bonding, touch and affection that a mother gives to her child. God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit has both masculine and feminine attributes since God is spirit. God made male and female in His own image. That’s right in the book of Genesis.”

“Therefore Jesus is all these things to the soul who loves Him. He is a Brother, Friend, Savior, Teacher, Bridegroom, Father and Mother. There is no greater example of Jesus being a Mother to the soul than Him nourishing us with His own body and blood in addition to Christ birthing the Church through blood and water from His side. Therefore those of us who feel that Christ cannot feel our sorrows, pains, loneliness, fears could realize we CAN approach Him with all confidence knowing that being close to him causes us to grow into spiritual maturity desiring the food that Jesus offers instead of the food that causes us harm. Jesus died for us, nourishes his children with his own body and blood. He feeds us spiritually with His own body and blood much like a mother feeds her children breast milk. “How often I have long to gather you like a mother hen gathers her chicks under her wings.” the Gospel of Luke. Here Jesus shows us His wounded bosom from which flows every good nutrient for our souls….. I have known Jesus as both a Father and a Mother. Jesus ministered to me throughout my life.”

“The Lord said to His own disciples “who is my mother, father, sister, brother but ALL those who do my Father’s will.” If Jesus doesn’t have a problem calling us these things, why would He have a problem, calling Him our Mother?” Jesus is my Brother, Friend, Savior, King, Lord, Father and I have also known Him as My Mother. He was there for me when no one else was.”

Matthew 12: 46 While He was still speaking to the crowds, behold, His mother and brothers were standing outside, seeking to speak to Him. 47 Someone said to Him, “Behold, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside seeking to speak to You.” 48 But Jesus answered the one who was telling Him and said, “Who is My mother and who are My brothers?” 49 And stretching out His hand toward His disciples, He said, “Behold My mother and My brothers! 50 “For whoever does the will of My Father who is in heaven, he is My brother and sister and mother.”

The Marriage Cup of Yeshua by Amy McCutcheon“The Marriage Cup of Yeshua”~ by Amy McCutcheon

The Jewish male seeks his Bride. offering her a cup of wine just as Yeshua did during the Last Supper. The prayer shawl (Talith) is sometimes used in a Jewish weddings as a covering over the bride and groom or worn on the head of the bridegroom. So in the painting the prayer shawl draped over the cup is very significant as it speaks of our covering, the Bridegroom Yeshua. He paid the price for His Bride a cup filled with His own precious blood. A Cup filled with HIS LOVE!

WHERE IS YOUR TREASURE?

20 Jul
WHERE IS YOUR TREASURE? 
Matthew 6:19-21Today we live in a world of material things. How many love their homes, love their cars, love electronics, computers, cell phones and the latest gadgets. Yet within seconds (a blink of an eye) everything can be totally destroyed by floods, hurricanes, fires, twisters. mud slides, earthquakes, tsunamis, and other natural disasters. God tells us not to store up treasures on Earth that can be eaten by moths and rust but to store up treasures for heaven. I am not saying it isn’t ok to have nice things but we need to make sure we are not making material things our number one priority. It is important to remember nothing is really ours, everything belongs to the Lord.
Psalm 24:1 The earth is the LORD’S, and all it contains, The world, and those who dwell in it.

  1 Corinthians 10:26 FOR THE EARTH IS THE LORD’S, AND ALL IT CONTAINS.

One may be a hard worker and put in long hours to get where they are and have the possessions they have. Yet it is God who created each of us and gave us the ability to work and have these material things. If we are full of pride then we need to replace it with a thankful attitude. It’s okay to find satisfaction in our work. Ecclesiastes 2:24 There is nothing better for a man than to eat and drink and tell himself that his labor is good. This also I have seen that it is from the hand of God. Just remember to thank God for creating you and giving you the gifts, skills and strength that allow you to succeed.

In Matthew 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon the earth, where moth and rust consume, and where thieves break through and steal. 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth consume, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. 21 for where thy treasure is, there will thy heart be also.
God tells us we need to be content with what we have as long as we have food and covering.
1 Timothy 6:7 For we have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of it either. 8 If we have food and covering, with these we shall be content. 9 But those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction.
Hebrews 13:5 Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,”
Matthew 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, be not anxious for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than the food, and the body than the raiment?
Philippians 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, [therewith] to be content.
“Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint. Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle.”  Proverbs 23:4-5

Luke 16:13 ” No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.
You cannot serve both God and Money.
STORE UP TREASURES FOR HEAVEN!
