Elohim is the name for God, Our Creator.
Genesis 1:1 says, "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth." It literally says, "In the beginning, Elohim created the heaven and the earth." That's the Hebrew word from two root words: 'El,' which means strength and unlimited power. And the last part is 'allah,' which means to keep a promise. Elohim is also a plural noun. I believe that right here on the threshold of the Bible we see an indication of the nature of God, as shown in the Holy Trinity - God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. All three were present in creation. (See John 1:3.) Aren't you glad we find the Savior in chapter 1, verse 1? Aren't you glad we find the Holy Spirit in chapter 1, verse 1? Aren't you glad we find the Father in chapter 1, verse 1 of the Word of God?
