Who is Elohim God?
In my previous post, it was explained why the WMSCOG believes in God existing as a male image, God the Father, and a female image, God the Mother. This means that there exists two Gods.
When God created mankind at the end of His creation, God said “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness.” God created man in his own image; male and female He created them. Through this we can see that God is not just one but two.
Then why do you hear the WMSCOG refer to God Almighty as Elohim God?
It is because even when you take a look at the original Hebrew text of the Old testament, the Creator God appears in plural form more than 2,500 times as “Elohim.”
Then what is the meaning of Elohim?
It is very common among Christianity to believe that God is one. But the term Elohim in fact completely defies this common sense, because Elohim has a plural meaning.
The Hebrew word “Elohim” is a combination of the singular noun “Eloah,” to which the plural ending “im” has been added. “Elohim” literally means “Gods,” which is the most common name for God used in the Hebrew Old Testament.
Now if God were only one, how would the following verses be explained?
Genesis 1:26-27 “Then God [Elohim] said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness… So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”
Genesis 11:1-7 “The LORD [Elohim] said, “… Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”
In the Ten Commandments, God started off by saying to the Israelites:
Exodus 20:1 “And God [Elohim] spoke all these words”
Isaiah 6:8 “Then I heard the voice of the Lord [Elohim] saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
Besides these verses, there are more than 2,500 other verses that show God the Father and God the Mother, Elohim Gods, carrying out the work of redemption together.
Is it still too hard to believe that there are two Gods, God the Father and God the Mother?
