Elohim- The God that loves us and knows us.

The noun Elohim is plural, it’s always used with a singular verb when it speaks of the One True God. This indicates the unity and diversity in the Trinity in existence from the beginning revealed in Scripture. But how……. Elohim appears in the very first line of scripture Genesis 1:1 ‘In the beginning [God] created’… which is interesting because it’s the alternative pluralized form of θεός – Theos: God; and instead of אל – El: God singular; which is how it appears after the first line of scripture as Genesis 1 and 2 continue. It is rendered אֱלהִים – Elohim: God, which is the plural of singular אֱלוֹהַּ – Eloah: God; but this etymological root of divine, infinite God by use of Elohim as it’s definition, specifically means a plurality of [three] – Father, Son, and Spirit. Not only that but for the writer of the Word, it would be a very bad grammatical error to do it and also not notice it on a par with There here instead of They’re here. Also, the singular form of Elohim is El. El is used in the Old Testament of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

It’s very important that we hermeneutically render only what is scripture and never add anything that is not there that changes context. As an example whenever the N.T says Lord it means God, and there is no Jehovah anywhere in scripture. Not until 1270 when Spanish Catholic monk Raymundus Martini accidentally badly mistranslated vowel points into the Tetragrammaton when translating scripture into Latin did Jehovah appear; which incidentally is how Jehovah itself got into the English language. Let me know if you would like Watchtower and Bible Tract Society (WBTS) references for this. The NWT is a shockingly bad version of scripture when looking at original scriptures and translation rules, there are more holes than a tea bag in the NWT version. Yet it has been deliberately altered and adjusted in multiple places, solely to fit a group’s unbiblical doctrine and control members of the (WBTS) as they seek to usurps the presence of personal individual two way speaking and listening relationship with the true living God by saving grace; and instead place themselves in authority over peoples lives.

The only way they can do that is to deny the eternal divine authority of Christ Jesus and silence the individual personal power the Holy Spirit speaking to us, so it’s members only listen to the pseudo-authoritative voice of the (WBTS). Please, consider this from scripture as just one example. O.T It says God will raise up Christ Jesus back to life. N.T It says God will raise up Christ Jesus back to life. Also in N.T Christ Jesus says to the Jews ‘Destroy this temple (Not the Synagog, but His body) and [ I will ] raise it again in three days’. Christ Jesus – God. Christ Jesus also says, ‘Only [ I ] have the authority to lay down my life and [take it back up again]’. Plus only God can possibly meet Gods standard of sinless perfect, sacrifice, victory and atonement for all that trust in God may be saved. In original scriptures O.T – the Aleph: א and the Tav: תו; and in the N.T – the Alpha: Α and Omega: Ω We see this spoke of the Father and of Christ Jesus. The first and last letters in Ancient Hebrew and Koine Greek. The first and the last, the beginning and the end, nothing before nothing after, the infinite ever existing holy divine creator of all existence who is God. But where is the Holy Spirit? – Genesis 1:2 ‘Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters’.

Take care
