That's why Moses is called man of God.
Which is one way of saying Moses is god right?

waw as a suffix means 'his.' he 'hers.' Think through the implication of the androgynous hypostasis being Ishu from Moses being called the man of God.
Come and see what is written: This is the blessing that Moses ish ha-elohim, the man of God, bestowed (Deut.33.1) master of the house, master of the Matronita — as is written: (ishah), her husband, may let it stand or ishah, her husband, may annul it (Numbers 30:14). For look, it is written (kallat Moshe), the bride of Moses (ibid. 7:1)! So Moses blessed whomever he wished and did not fear. Therefore Jacob said, 'I see that these sons of , mine are on the side of harsh Judgment. Let the master of the house come, and he will bless them!' "Surely, ish ha-Elohim, husband of Godl He did as he wished with the house, as has been established: her husband may let it stand or her husband may annul it. Her husband may let it stand — as is written: Moses said, 'Arise, O YHVH!' (ibid. 10:35). Or her husband may annul it — as is written: And when it came to rest, he would say, 'Return, O YHVH!' (ibid., 36). The master of the house surely did as he wished, with no one hindering him. (Zohar I 236b; Daniel C. Matt, trans., The Zohar, Pritzker ed., vol. 3 [Stanford, CA: Stanford University Press, 2007], p. 434)
It all comes down to one detail that often gets overlooked - the early Christians understood that only 'males' resided in heaven. Do the math.
