El, Elohim, Saba˘th, Eli˘n, Asher yeheyeh, Adonai, Jah, JHVH, and Shaddai,.......The list of the names of God or words that are related to God SEEM to go on for miles!!!!
Now ask me about the pagan hell subject, and I can slice through the subject like cold steel through warm butter.
BUT,.....when it comes to the NAMES of God, it is confusing the HECK out of me.
I guess I have taken the subject for granted all these years.
I just never thought too much about it. I always called God, in prayer or when speaking about him, "God", “The Father”, “The Great I Am” (One of my favorites!!), “Abba” or the “Almighty Creator”, The Creator or something like that, and Jesus Christ was just Jesus Christ. I have heard all different stories about Jesus' name also. But that is kind of like an entire story all on its own.
So just trying to sift whether Elohyim is ALWAYS speaking of God or CAN be speaking of Angels (Which I take to simply mean messenger. That is where “Angelos” comes into play. As Satan just means adversary, Angel just means messenger and MIGHT not have any Devine or heavenly meaning to it.)
I mean it seems as if the name Theos in the Greek points to being a representation of the name of God. Not as in his personal name, but in that it means we are speaking of God when we say Theos,
...BUT when it comes to the Hebrew, I am totally LOST.
Is Elohyim speaking of God, as in the Father (The Whole of God?) or could Elohyim even be an Angel, if there are such created beings and not just a messenger of God (Human or the Spirit of God)?
I am sorry to seem so scattered on this subject,… but I AM!!!!!
In the Beginning Elohyim created the Heaven and the Earth.Does this mean that Elohyim is always referring to God
or does it mean that there are many Elohyim and God is mentioned in his personal name later on, since it seems as if the Israelites needed for God to have a name; and that is when Moses came down and told them that his name was “I AM” (Hayah).
And if the TRUE name of God is Hayah, then what the heck does Jehovah mean??? Ahhhhh!!!!!!
And when the hour came Jesus cried out to “ELI”! Now I can see this as the humanity of Jesus crying out to his God saying: “My God, My God why have you forsaken me”, BUT I cannot seem to get a grasp on any ONE CLEAR NAME TO GOD.
And Like I said, the ONE who created the World is Elohyim.
Now I am totally confused. Someone please help,….I am drowning in names,….blub,…blub,…blub!
