Elohim, The Only True God Who Rules With Majesty

[Gen 1:1-2 KJV] 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

There are sixteen names of God mentioned in the Old Testament. 

  • This very first name given to God is found in the very first verse of Genesis. This name shows that God is the majestic ruler over all. Elohim is actually a plural word and it’s use as the first name of God sets him high above all other gods. It also foreshadows the later revelation of the triune Godhead – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Elohim the majestic ruler over all is revealed here in the first book of the Bible. There is none other like Him. He is the only true God. He is the creator of all things.

 [Jhn 1:1-4 KJV] 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

Men can declare that there are other gods but He is the only God that is there for all men from the beginning of creation and will continue to be there for all eternity. It is in His completeness as is shown by this name that we have a hope of heaven and we expect to see the completion of our salvation.

We worship Him in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. That is the truth that is revealed in this 1st verse of Genesis. He is our Father and He sent His only begotten Son to die for us that our sins might be forgiven. He also gives us His Holy Spirit to dwell in us that we can live the lives on this earth that he desires of us.

[Jhn 3:16-17 KJV] 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Every man and woman needs to establish relationship with Him so sin can be erased and redemption can rule and reign. Our world is such a struggle! Without Him it will not get any better. Elohim is our only hope for the future.  As the songwriter has penned "Without Him I can do nothing, Without Him I'd surely fail, Without Him I would be drifting like a Ship without a sail."

Our society desperately needs God. If you have not invited Him into your  life, do so today! What a difference it will make.

Keep Looking Up!
