Is Mary Really Queen of Heaven?


The 1994 Catholic Catechism states that Mary is the Queen of Heaven.

“Finally the Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things.” Pg. 252, #966

I searched God’s Word for the phrase “Queen of Heaven” and found it referenced five times:

(Jer 7:18 ) 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.

(Jer 44:17) But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil.(Jer 44:18 ) But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine.

(Jer 44:19) And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven, and poured out drink offerings unto her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink offerings unto her, without our men?

(Jer 44:25) Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saying; Ye and your wives have both spoken with your mouths, and fulfilled with your hand, saying, We will surely perform our vows that we have vowed, to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her: ye will surely accomplish your vows, and surely perform your vows.

The Word does not teach that it is OK to worship the Queen of Heaven, my friend. In fact, it condemns it! Do you really think that God would associate Himself with a practice He has condemned and that makes Him angry??

Jer 7:18 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. (emphasis mine) God’s anger is provoked here!

You worship Mary, your queen of heaven, for the same reason these people did in Jeremiah’s time. You obey tradition and magisterium and what they tell you to do. It was no different in Jeremiah’s time: (Jer 44:17) But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil. The people were blinded by tradition and continued to worship the queen of heaven because they saw no evil in it. After all, your priests and Pope wouldn’t lie to you… or would they?

As a catholic, have your done your research on this topic? You just need to do a Google search to find out there are many religions that have and still worship the “Queen of heaven.” Why would God associate Mary to a title that is given to many false goddesses?

With that as a side note, let’s proceed to who God says is to be exalted on high:

(Psa 57:5) Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth.

(1Ch 29:11) Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.

(Psa 18:46) The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.

There are many more verses – I’ve only listed a few for brevity’s sake.

Furthermore, only the Lord is to be exalted:

(Isa 2:11) The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.

(Isa 2:17) And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.God receives glory through whom? Through Jesus Christ – not Mary.

(Rom 16:27) To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen. [Written to the Romans from Corinthus, and sent by Phebe servant of the church at Cenchrea.]

I searched the word “Jesus” in my e-Swordand it appears 983 times in the Bible. The word “Christ” appears 541 times and the phrase “Lord Jesus” appears 115 times! The entire New Testatement covers Christ’s birth, life, death, resurrection, salvation and how to live as Christians. His reign is not kept silent – in fact, it is stated with boldness! Three times it is mentioned that He is Lord of lords and King of kings!

(1Ti 6:15) Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;

(Rev 17:14) These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

(Rev 19:16) And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

His right to be exalted is not hidden – it is not silent. It is easily read and it is extremely well documented in our Bible.

Now, let’s review Mary’s reign – Mary’s right to being exalted as the catholic catechism states. Let’s see what God’s Word says:

Hmmmm … nothing! No where can I find a verse that supports such a doctrine! Mary is spoken of maybe 30 or so times in the Word, altogether. No where is she placed on a pedestal. No where is she exalted to a place higher than any of the apostles. If Jesus had thought that she should be, He would have stated somewhere that she was to be given special honor. But yet, there is no record of it. I challenge anyone to show me where this would be so.

Only Jesus, the Lord of lords and King of kings is to receive exaltation! (Php 2:9) Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

(Php 2:10) That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

and

(Rev 5:12) Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

The Book of Revelation would have been a perfect place to put the Queen of Heaven. However, the only mention of a queen in Revelation was the Queen of Babylon: (Rev 18:7) How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Why would Christ be silent about His mother if He loved her so much to exalt her to the position of Queen of Heaven? How many sons do you know that are silent about their mothers?

Again, catholicism puts Mary in a greater position that she should have and demotes Jesus Christ from His rightful position. Catholicism says that Mary is the Queen of all things yet God is angered by this. When God is referenced in the New Testament when it comes to worship, Mary is never mentioned. Why not? Is it because it’s tradition and magisterium?

(Mar 7:8 ) For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.

(Col 2:8 ) Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

My friend, only God is to be exalted – only Jesus Christ!

(Php 2:9) Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

(Php 2:10) That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

(Php 2:11) And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

  1. Christian Bulacan says:

    Well, it is obvious my friends that the truth had been revealed in the Bible. There is no Queen of Heaven, and if there is, we should not worship
    her. My friends, associated to Christmas, Roman Catholics shared their beliefs in paganism. After Jesus Christ the Lord and Savior died, his own apostles spreaded that their is a Messiah and we should celebrate his birth. The apostles described the Messiah in a maiden’s arms. Well, throughout the world, the news was heard. However, many other pagan gods were worshipped at that time when the news was spread. A Roman god named Saturnalia held a babe on her arms, which her celebration was the 25th of December. Isis, the Sun God of Egypt alo held a child. After 3oo years of Jesus’ death, the Roman Catholicsm started. They chose Saturnalia’s celebration date as the date of Christmas, December 25. This is all true for it is all written in the Roman Catholic Cathedral in Rome. It was inscribed deeply. And associated to the Queen of Heaven, many else were named, Mary, Isis, Saturnalia, Diana, Artemis, Aphrodite and many more. There can only be one queen, but many are named. Even though if there is one, which is impossible, which one of these women i typed will you accept and why? The answer, no one. Only the Trinity should be honored and glorified. This is from the Born-again church, which is not a religion, but a relationship with God. I am converting you, but if you do not accept, i will find someone else like what God does. If one man rejects God, God will find other people. REPENT! JOIN THE REAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD! BE BORN-AGAIN WITH THE SPIRIT!!! God Bless You All…email me at christianbulacan@yahoo.com to giveme messages…thank you

    Looks like you are a cowardly man who hides behind your own interpretation of the word! The Profit was talking distinctively about a Cananite! The Virgin Mary and her title as Queen of Heaven is spoken about in the book of revelations chapter 12, I will let you read that one. This article is complete slander and Jesus will spit in your face for disrespecting his mother…. You heretic…

    • Maranatha says:

      First of all, Ed, the author of this article was Rick Jones, not me. Secondly, the woman mentioned in Revelations 12 was not the Queen of Heaven but referred to as “a woman” – this is a symbolic reference to Israel and what will happen to Israel during the Tribulation. Just as the dragon is symbolic of Satan. If you read the chapter in its entirety it is quite evident that it is Israel.

      It is you, sir, who hides behind your own interpretation of the Word of God. To the child of God, the Bible is not of any private interpretation but the Holy Spirit of God who interprets for us.

      (2Pet 1:20 [KJV]) Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake [as they were] moved by the Holy Ghost.

      Rick Jones has done a wonderful job at exposing Catholicism and its leading many to false doctrine. God’s Word is what will judge every man according to:

      (John 12:48 [KJV]) He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

      If that’s the case, I would be cautious to heed every word from the Bible rather than the dogmas of a religion.
