Q: What does "Elohim" mean?

A: According to the Hebrew/Aramaic Dictionary, the word Elohim is the plural word for El or Eloah, meaning Gods. El and Eloah are the singular terms—masculine and feminine, respectively—for God. The word appears in the Bible more than 2,500 times, indicating that God is not just one but more than one.

“In the beginning God [Elohim] created the heavens and the earth.”

Genesis 1:1

In the original Hebrew text, it says that Elohim created the heavens and the earth. From the beginning, Creator God shows Their original nature as more than one. Elohim is God the Father and God the Mother.

We can see God Elohim working together throughout the history of mankind. In the beginning of Creation, God created human beings according to Their plural image (Ge 1:26-27). In the book of Isaiah, we can see God working together again to carry out the work of salvation (Isa 6:7-10). And again in the last age, God the Father and God the Mother appear together again as the Spirit and the Bride to complete Their work of salvation. 

“The Spirit and the bride say, ‘Come!’ And let him who hears say, ‘Come!’ Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.”

Genesis 1:1
