Elohim “The word Elohim is the plural of El (or possibly Eloah) and is the first name of God given in the Old Testament: “In the beginning, God (Elohim) created the heavens and the earth, (Gen. 1:1).
This is the definition of Elohim. Originally the Old Testament was written in the Hebrew language. In the Hebraic language, El or Eloah means God in singular form and Elohim means Gods in plural form. This is very important in understanding the bible. All throughout the Old Testament, God is referred to as Elohim (Gods), not as El or Eloah (God). This word Elohim is used about 2500 times to represent God. Even from the creation of the world to the end, God is not used in the singular form, but in the plural form. It means even from the beginning Gods are working together.
How could it be possible? We used to believe there is only one God, then why does God represent himself as Elohim (Gods), not El (God)? Many got confused and gave many different explanations which are not true or based on the understanding in the bible. People made their own personal or communal interpretation for their own congregation. Now let us get rid of our own thought and read the bible through the bible and understand the reason why God is represented as Elohim (Gods) in the bible.
Even though God is invisible and spiritual, God made his divinity known to man who can perceive only the physical things. Since man cannot see the invisible world, God let man know the invisible world through the visible world which they can understand. Therefore, the bible says this physical world is a copy and shadow created to teach us the spiritual world which is the original and reality. Especially in this physical world, God created one thing to teach us the images of Gods (Elohim). By looking at one creation on this earth, we can understand more about Elohim.
Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
God is creating man and in the original Hebrew language the word Elohim (Gods) is used instead of God. That is why Gods used “us” and “our” the plural form to represent them, rather than “me” or “my” the singular form. God didn’t say, “Let me make man in my image” because Gods are working together to create man. Then how many Gods are working together? Who are they? God is in heaven in the spiritual and invisible world which we as physical being cannot perceive. But just as God revealed his own divinity through the creation on this physical world so that men are without excuse. Then what was created as copy and shadow of God so that we can know the image or images of Gods. He said, “let us make man in our image and in our likeness.”
Man was given the copied images of God and by looking at the creation of man we can know the images of Gods too. Then how many images were given to man?
Genesis 1:27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them;male and female he created them.
They say that this is the ideal image of man and woman and they were created in a science lab. Anyway God created man as male and female to reveal God’s own image. This is the image of man which was created according to the image of God. Then how many images of God can you guess by looking at these images of man? Just as there is a male image of man, there should be a male image of God, whom we call God the Father. In the same way, through the female after the creation of man, we can conclude that there is a female image of God. Then what should we call her? God the Mother.
God is always working together even from the creation to the end. The same Elohim (Gods) who created man in the book of Genesis are coming together in the last days to complete the creation and give eternal life.
Revelation 22:17 17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.
The Spirit, God the Father and his bride, God the Mother would come together to give the water of life or eternal life. God Elohim, Father Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother Jerusalem came down to this earth to give us eternal life. The bible says the mystery of God, Christ will be revealed at the last days. The mystery hidden since the creation of the world is Christ, Elohim coming as male and female in the flesh. Let us receive eternal life by accepting Father Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother. Give glory to God Elohim.
