Elohim: God the Father and God the Mother

Elohim God

Elohim, the most frequently used term for God in the original Hebrew Bible, appears over 2,500 times, translating to “Gods” in English. The plural nature of Elohim is evident in Genesis, where God says, “Let us make mankind in our image.” Had God been singular, singular pronouns would have been used. The Bible consistently refers to the male image of God as “Father” and, similarly, we should acknowledge the female image as “Mother.”

“‘Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.’ So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth.”

During the Tower of Babel incident, God speaks in plural, affirming the collaborative nature of God the Father and God the Mother. This pattern continues in Isaiah 6:8.

“Then I heard the Lord asking, ‘Whom should I send as a messenger to this people? Who will go for us?’ I said, ‘Here I am. Send me.’”

Jesus, in teaching the disciples to pray, emphasizes God as “Our Father,” establishing the familial relationship with God. The Bible explicitly testifies about God the Mother (Rev 21:9–10).

“But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.”

In Revelation 22:17, God our Father and His bride — God the Mother — invite Their children to receive eternal life. The World Mission Society Church of God, adhering to these biblical prophecies, invites you to explore Elohim and eternal life by visiting your local Church of God.
