Are There Two Gods in the Bible?
Elohim God – Biblical or Not?
What do you think? Is Elohim God biblical or not? Are there really two Gods in the Bible? You’ve never heard of this, right? When I first heard about it, it sounded pretty crazy to me as well.
So, of course, I did my research.
There are some people who deny the existence of God the Mother. They’ve made it their business to spread rumors about the teachings of the World Mission Society Church of God. I’ve heard some people claim that the word Elohim is not biblical and that it was made up by the General Pastor of the WMSCOG.
The term Elohim (אֱלֹהִים) is from the original Hebrew text. If you didn’t know, the Old Testament was originally written in Hebrew by Moses and the prophets. Elohim is the Hebrew for Gods. Plural. The singular forms are El and Eloa. But Moses wrote about God Almighty as Elohim, meaning Gods.
Genesis 1:26 Then God [Elohim] said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us…So God [Elohim] created human beings in his own image. In the image of God [Elohim] he created them; male and female he created them.
From the very beginning, God is recorded in the plural form. According to Biblicists, the term Elohim is recorded in the Old Testament approximately 2,500 times.
Genesis 11:1 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. Then they [the people] said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heaves, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.” But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. The Lord [Elohim] said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”
Isaiah 6:8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord [Elohim] saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
These are just a few verses that prove the God of the Bible is plural, NOT singular.
But the Bible itself says there’s only one God!
John 8:41 “The only Father we have is God himself.”
Ephesians 4:5 …one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
Yes, it says there is only one God the Father. But does that mean there isn’t God the Mother? If God wanted to say that there is only one single God, don’t you think He would’ve been smart enough to say, there is only one God, instead of saying there is only one God the Father? Why did God specifically say only one God the Father?
This implies that there are children. And if there are children, are they born of nothing? No, God created things according to His will. Children are only born of their mothers. So, there is only one God the Father because there is also only one God the Mother.
Elohim is testified not only in the creation, but it becomes even clearer in Revelation that there are two Gods working together – God the Father and God the Mother.
Revelation 22:17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” Let anyone who hears this say, “Come.” Let anyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who desires drink freely from the water of life.
The Spirit (God the Father) and the Bride (God the Mother) work together in the last days to give the children of God eternal life – something only God can give.
When you refer to a married couple, traditionally, how are they addressed? Mr. John Smith and Mrs. John Smith? Not really. Usually it’s Mr. and Mrs. John Smith. And only the husband’s name is referenced because, again, traditionally, he’s the representative of the family.
Romans 5:19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man [Adam] the many were made sinners…
So only Adam sinned, right? Eve didn’t sin? Everyone knows it was Eve who was first tempted by the serpent and made Adam sin. But the Bible says that sin entered the world through one man – Adam. Because he is the representative of the family. Just like God the Father is the representative of the heavenly family.
God Elohim is God the Father and God the Mother. As Solomon would say, that is the conclusion of the matter. Some will believe and some won’t and that’s just how it is.
I choose to believe God and not some stories people have made up just because they don’t agree with the WMSCOG. It’s your choice to believe the Bible or not…to believe God or not.
