Meaning of ‘ELOHIM’

Contrary to what some have recently adopted to believe or might unwisely suggest to others as fanciful authenticity amidst other bizarre claims, the truth concerning Hebrew, as it now called, is that it is native to Canaan, and from within Canaan, Yis_ra’EL, and, by inheritance, is the language spoken and understood by Jews.

’EL, pronounced as “ell” or “ale”, is a singular, masculine noun meaning: a strong or mighty one, a hero, a god.

Hah’EL or H’al’EL is the TRUE GOD, properly.

’EL SHAHTHAY, the GOD of the fields and the sacred earth from whence all life comes, the mighty one of life.

’EL ‘EHL_YWON is the MOST HIGH GOD; ‘ehl_ywon, strength, power, might. ‘Illiy is an adjective meaning the upper, the higher. ‘Aliyyah is feminine for upper room, upper story; the chambers of heaven. ‘Ehl_ywon is an adjective meaning high, exalted. ’EL ‘EHL_YWON, the MOST HIGH, SUPREME GOD.

These terms, in part, rise from the verb infinitive, ‘ahlah, and in its forms means: to ascend, to mount up, to go up; to rise; to grow up [or upwards, that is to reach or move toward and for the heavens—the sense is rich and deep, filled with many nuances depending on context]; to be lifted up, to put up…to be led away; to rise up; to be high, exalted [in the proper sense]…to cause to go up, to lead or bring up, to raise, to impose; to take away; to remove; to overlay [such as in the layers and dimensions of existence and being]…to be brought up, offered [properly in gratitude and thanksgiving, not as a sacrifice, but as a gesture of appreciation for the gifts and fruits of life and being—this is the original intent of this meaning]…to be elated [excited with majesty, excited with the wonders of Creation], to pride oneself [in the proper way, to feel confidence and appreciation for the blessings of one’s gifts provided by life and the CREATOR—the meaning, here, too, is very deep and rich, when correctly understood].

‘Ehl_ywon is reflective of ’ailwon, the masculine noun designating either an oak or terebinth—a mighty tree, an ancient tree of the arbor, the ancient grove. The meaning is very ancient, literally rooted in the earth.

’Ahllah is the feminine noun for oak. The symbol of the oak designates strength, longevity, and power.

The word, ’ahllah, has nothing to do with Allah, the feminine night demon that became the false god embraced by Islam, their Iblis.

With ‘ahleh, we have the masculine noun collectively meaning foliage, leaves [again the suggestion of the tie-in with the earth, very sacred to the ancient Canaanites].

‘Olah can be burnt offering, holocaust, but is properly, ascent, stairs; in a sense, the “stairway to heaven”, and the ladder of Jacob.

’Ehl is a preposition: to towards, in the direction of, according to, in addition to, with regard to, against, into, among, near, with, and is closely related to lahmath as a prefixed preposition, lah, having virtually the same meaning. Both can serve as specialized negations, the former ’ehl, applied in prohibitions and wishes: that not, lest not, may not, let not; lo’, as no, not; in questions expecting affirmative answers.

’Elwoah, poetic form, is masculine-feminine singular: a god. ’ELOAH / ’ELWOAH, GOD.

’ELOHIM designates GOD, the ONE, TRUE GOD. The definite article can be applied, though rarely: Hah’ELOHIM, H’al’ELOHIM, Hal’ELOHIM. ’ELOHIM. The sense is SINGULAR PLURAL MAJESTY, beyond human comprehension and understanding. This noun-signifier takes a singular verb. It is SINGULAR in meaning, never plural as multiples, ONE GOD, ONE.

It is only in certain contexts, often with an affixed definer that ’ehlohiym assumes additional meanings beyond the root understandings, such as in ’iysh ’ehlohiym and vehn ’ehlohiym. These can mean angel, an Israelitic king, heathen gods [a later connotation], and higher, godlike beings [angels]. The final understanding simply suggests that angels are close to ’ELOHIM and share a creative affinity with ’ELOHIM, the TRUE GOD. The difference is very clear, when understood. None of this substantiates the claim for alien beings or gods. The real meaning is quite clear and definite. The Hebrew is sharp and powerful in its clarity and strength.

’ELOHIM is GOD and takes a singular verb (much as Egypt / Mitzrayim; Life / Chayyiym; water or waters / mayim; heaven (fire-waters) / shahmayim; and the current rendering of Jerusalem / Y_rwushahlayim).

As stated above, ’ELOHIM is GOD, the ’ehlohiym, angels. These are two separate entitational states of being of manifest eternity and creative power. The angels are born and manifested from ’ELOHIM, the ONE TRUE GOD, draw their life from THEM, and rejoice in the creative powers given them. True angels are creative, infinite, beyond human comprehension and understanding. True angels are benevolent and strong in their characteristics and capabilities. They are literally the first children of the ETERNAL.

’ELOHIM is masculine-feminine singular-plural, takes a singular verb, and can be rendered as ’ELOHIMWOTH. This was contracted in time. It does not mean more than ONE GOD. It simply suggests that GOD has all creative attributes within its comple/imentarative NATURE.

’EL>>>’ELWOAH / ’ELOAH>>>’ELOHIMWOTH>>>’ELOHIM. Each is appropriate for the ONE TRUE ’ELOHIM, the ONE TRUE GOD.

The noun, ’AH_VAH, LOVE, is the primary designator for and of ’ELOHIM. It is the HIGHEST SPIRITUAL LOVE, PURE CREATIVE ENERGY AND THOUGHT, beyond human definition.

Understand this, and you understand the position we hold as Messiah / H’al_mahshiyach to responsibly correct understandings of this ancient language.
