Summary: “Mothers are like glue. Even when you can't see them, they're still holding the family together.” -Susan Gale. Truly we are all Saved By Childbearing… The bearing of the Holy child Jesus! – Savior of the world!
“6 years: Mom knows everything; 8 years: Mom knows a lot; 12 years: Mom really doesn't know everything; 14 years: Mom knows nothing; 16 years Mom, what mom; 18 years: Mom is outdated; 25 years: Maybe Mom knows after all; 35 years: Before deciding, let's ask Mom; 45 years: I wonder what Mom thinks; 70 years: I wish Mom was here to ask he.” - Unkknown

The Hebrew word for mother is [E-yM]; spelled: Aleph Mem.
In the ancient Hebrew pictographic script, this word was written as:
Ox head (Aleph), Water (Mem).
The Ox head means strength; flowing water, i.e. denotes action.
When combined: it is "strong water." And “strong water” = Glue.
Therefore the mother is one who “binds” the family together.
Let’s briefly consider 8 Blessed Mothers in the Bible:
Eve: "Mother of All the Living."
Sarah: The mother of the nation of Israel.
Rebekah: God opened her womb and she conceived.
Jochebed: The mother of Moses, showed tremendous faith in God.
Hannah: She never gave up on God.
Bathsheba: One of only five women listed in Messiah's ancestry.
Elizabeth: She dedicated her son to God.
Mary: “highly favored by God”.
Genesis 3:15 “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”
The “seed of the woman” - not the seed of man:
Can only agree with one: the Messiah;
For he was born of a virgin: Isaiah 7:14 "Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel".
This was fulfilled in Jesus, who was truly the “seed of the woman”. He was conceived in the womb of the virgin by the power of the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit.
The Messiah, bruised the serpent’s head (destroy satan and the work of spiritual death).
Psalm 110:6 "He shall wound the heads over many countries…"
Habakkuk 3:13 "You went out for the salvation of your people, for the salvation of your anointed. You crushed the head of the house of the wicked, laying him bare from thigh to neck."
Jesus, Messiah crushed the enemy on Golgotha’s hill where his heel was bruised.
In the Garden of Eden it was: Satan-woman-man-God;
That’s out of proper Biblical order
It should have been: God-man-woman-Satan.
Keep it right and thereby, keep right.
Paul addresses this:
I Timothy 2:13-15 “13- For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 14- And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. 14- Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.”
Save by Childbearing… what does that meant?
Paul clarifies it:
I Timothy 5:14–15: “14- So I would have younger widows marry, bear children, manage their households, and give the adversary no occasion for slander. 15- For some have already strayed after Satan.” -NIV
Hence “childbearing” is part-and-parcel of a woman’s role.
Keep it right and thereby, keep right.
We are all Saved By Childbearing!
For “Mary had a little lame and its fleece was white as snow.”
John 1:29, 36 “29- … John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. 36- Behold the Lamb of God!”
Jesus was the Lamb for sinners slain.
Leviticus 4:24 “And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the goat, and kill it in the place where they kill the burnt offering before the LORD: it is a sin offering.”
Leviticus 16:21-22 “21- And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness: 22 -And the goat shall bear [“nasa”, H05375] upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness. ”
