Her Story

The Queen of Heaven

by Aviyah

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
The Queen of Heaven tells her story. She was the dark, hidden, forbidden, feminine presence, but has been reconciled and reunited with her soul mate, Adam/Messiah.
This is the story of the first woman – Hava (Eve) and now Miriam (Mary). Hers is the dark and hidden voice of the Queen of Heaven, now reconciled to her soul mate, who is both Adam and the Mashiach (Messiah). Throughout the Bible, she is veiled – even after her transformation. And yet, hers was also a voice of worldly reason, of support for the rule of survival of the fittest, and for the way things are here on earth. She was wounded in the beginning of time by God Himself – as she saw it. And from her perspective, it was up to Him to remedy the situation. And so He has. She wants to bring us consolation, hope, and a way forward out of the darkness and into the light that is the truth and love of our immanent and transcendent God.
About the author


"Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign: Behold, the maiden (almah) conceived and is bringing forth a son, and she will call his name Immanuel" (Yeshaiah 7:14).

Though this verse is also a prophecy of a future mashiach (anointed one), the immediate identity of the maiden and her child is concealed. There are many who have seen King Hizkiyahu (God is my strength) as the likely identity of the one the maiden would call Immanuel (God with us). And Aviyah, which means God is my father, was the maiden who became the mother of Hizkiyahu.

The difficulty of this verse as prophecy about Hizkiyahu and Aviyah has been that the Bible tells us that Hizkiyahu was born several years before Yeshaiah wrote these words, and the prophecy is usually translated entirely in the future tense. However, I have it on good authority that it says "the maiden conceived" – past tense. That is, the one to be called Immanuel had already been conceived at the time of the prophecy of the "sign" to be given to King Ahaz.

Hizkiyahu was a truly messianic figure who turned the southern kingdom of Yehuda back to God shortly before its deportation to Babylon. And God turned back time for Hizkiyahu (2 Kings 20:11) as a sign for him that his death would be delayed, and that the Assyrians would not take his kingdom. This sign seems to be mirrored by Yishaiah's prophetic sign, which also appears to reach into the past – when translated correctly.

Also, alam, a word with the same root as the word translated maiden (almah), means was concealed. Perhaps this hints that the "sign" for the evil king Ahaz was that this maiden (who became his wife) concealed and rescued her son, just as Yocheved had once concealed and rescued her son, Moshe. Yeshaiah's prophecy, then, may have been written to inform the king that his maiden wife, Aviyah, conceived and bore a son, and then escaped with him in order to rescue him from the king's known intent to pass his sons through the fires of Moloch (2 Kings 16:3). It may have been that his magnificent and holy young son would become a sign to Ahaz of his own impotence in the face of God.

Therefore, just as the Queen of Heaven, the subject and speaker of Her Story, has been concealed throughout her existence, the one bearing the name I have chosen for myself as the author, Aviyah, appears to have concealed her son -- and her name conceals me.
