As we continue to look at the names and attributes of God, it is best to start at the beginning. Realizing that for God himself, there was no beginning–He is timeless; We look at our beginnings and see from the start, that God is all powerful. Elohim means strength or power. But, more importantly, Elohim is the 1st description of the Trinity. Elohim is plural. From the beginning of the Bible, God has always been known as Father, Son and Spirit. When we understand that God’s nature allows him to be Father, Son and Spirit, then it furthers our ability to realize his love and commitment to us his chosen.
Elohim never intended to be a faceless, distant God that stayed out of touch with us. He sent his Son–who was with him from the beginning, to be our sacrifice and our way to understand his true character and nature. He also sent his spirit when Jesus ascended–to comfort, guide and assist us in our becoming like him. We cannot fathom the amazing nature of the trinity; but, we can accept that Elohim the 1st name of God is all of God’s nature, strength and power. It is that nature that created everything, holds everything in place and draws us to his side simply to love us and restore us to the eternal relationship he always wanted for us!
God Bless You
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 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.
3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
