The prophets wrote the Old Testament, depicting God in a specific way. When we examine the original text of the Bible, it consistently refers to God as “Elohim,” the plural form of God.
This term appears around 2,500 times in the Old Testament. In the Hebrew dictionary, El or Eloah signifies God or god in the singular form, while Elohim denotes God in the plural form.
This indicates that God the Father is not the only Creator. On the first page of The Scriptures version of the Bible, we can see that Elohim is the one carrying out all the creation work.
And when God created human beings, Elohim also spoke.
Here, God Elohim uses the plural words “us” and “our” instead of “me” and “my.” So, who does “us” refer to?
“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”
Genesis 1:27 (NIV)
“And Elohim created the man in His image, in the image of Elohim He created him—male and female He created them.”
Genesis 1:27 (Scriptures)
God the Father and God the Mother worked together in the creation of humankind. And, again, they work together to grant eternal life in the last days. In the book of Revelation, they appear as the Spirit and the Bride. Learning, understanding, and believing in God Elohim is key to receiving eternal life.
