    Israel is also seen as a son to God as well as a wife of God.

    "And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn: And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, even thy firstborn" (Ex. 4:22-23).

    Believers are also seen with the potential in both the feminine as well as masculine. We await the adoption of sons as well as await the marriage to Christ.
