An ancient tablet discovered, shows historical evidence that originally the earth was ruled by many ‘‘. In fact ‘elohim’ originally meant ‘gods’. ‘Elohim’ is a plural word, which is strange since you are taught… is ONE. You have been ‘taught’ that one Hebrew God rules the universe even though the Hebrew word Elohim means ’gods.’ So when you read, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:’ Gen 1:26, it makes sense. Using OUR. Our image and likeness…Doesn’t it?
Just remember, these ancient stories were passed down stories verbally from generation to generation -then written. So one can assume the whole meanings were changed as modern men did translations in line with their views of God. So maybe that’s why there are many different ‘gods’ mentioned in the Bible.
Starting with the word Elohim. Elohim; is the common word for God, gods, judges or mighty ones with mighty powers. Elohim is considered a ‘deity’. The word ‘deity’ comes from a root in Sanskrit and means, ‘sky.’ The original Hebrew for Elohim, meant “those who came down from the sky. ” DOWN FROM THE SKY????
There are many, many stories of a God and ‘gods‘ from the ‘sky.’ Gods who could at great speed fly around in, glowing, flashing, spinning, metallic objects, which appear dark and solid like low clouds in daylight, while brightly lit, with beams of light at night, and could and did shoot down hailstones, (bombs) on the people and who had the ability to destroy entire cities with fire from their place in the skies. These Gods, had wars among themselves. In the sky.
We are told the Gods, the Deities are frequently expressed as having human form. They are assumed to have personalities, desires, and emotions similar to those of humans. Remember, the God of thewas a ‘deity.’ It seem likely the ‘gods‘ of the Bible were advanced humans.
The God of Israel admitted that he was ‘supreme among other gods.’ Sounds like an American President, or any world leader, who believes he and his country are supreme among all ‘other gods’.
God told the people ‘against all the ‘gods‘ of Egypt he will execute judgment.’ Exodus 12:12 If God tells you that there are many different ‘gods’…That must be. Right?
What gods were the people talking about when they said…‘Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods?’ Or, what gods was God talking about when He said, “Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you.”Deuteronomy 6:14 And… “Thou shalt not go after other gods to serve them.” Deuteronomy 6:14 What Gods?
What ‘gods’? Haven’t you been ‘taught’ that there is only ONE GOD? Were you ‘taught’ wrong? Sure seems like it. DOESN’T IT?
It seems that not much has changed for men over the last few thousand years. There are still GODS…LEADERS who tell you they are the ones to obey and fear. The Bible God seems to be like any other leader…and He certainly can not be the God man is suppose to worship…because the God found in the Bible is a God who breaks his own commandment of, THOU SHALL NOT KILL. And the Bible God kills everyone who displeases him. Who are these Gods?
Since it was man to told you about God, is there a change he, they, got it wrong? Of course they did. Just re read the above.
So the big question is…. WHO IS GOD
There is only ONE way to know.You have to go to God directly and let It explain Itself to you.
