Elohim: God the Father and God the Mother

Elohim God

The Old Testament, written by prophets inspired by the Holy Spirit, consistently describes God as Elohim, the plural form of God, found more than 2,500 times. This plural term emphasizes that God is not a singular entity, solely as a Father.

“Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness.’”

In Genesis, God Elohim says, “Let us make man in our image,” using a plural form, which suggests a plural identity. Verse 27 confirms that humankind was created in the image of God, who is both male and female. Therefore, the original term for God encompasses both genders, with the male image known as God the Father, implying the existence of a female image known as God the Mother.

Throughout history, Elohim, God the Father, and God the Mother, worked collaboratively. For example, during the time of Noah’s descendants building the tower of Babel, Elohim said, “Come, let us go down and confuse their language” (Gen 11:6–9). When calling prophets for the work of testifying to the nations, Elohim said, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” (Isa 6:8). 

Together, God the Father and God the Mother, as Elohim, have worked in harmony to fulfill the plan of salvation for God’s children.
