Genesis 1:1 - In The Beginning, Part Two

“Elohim”, translated as G-d here in Genesis 1:1, is actually the Hebrew word for G-ds. In the beginning, G-ds created the heavens and the earth. Here we have a plural noun which has a singular verb. In earlier text and Hebraic translational materials, "Elohim" is translated as Holy Ones.

Holy Ones, what does that mean? Well, if you look at the whole counsel of G-d, the whole Word of G-d, you'll find that means G-d is the Father, The Word of G-d, The Spirit of G-d, The Hand of G-d, The Right Arm of G-d and so on. Within his dimensionality, Even though G-d is One, G-d  actions appear to be multiple entities, within our Space-Time. 

Does this contradict the Sh'ma found in Deuteronomy 6:4, “The Lord, our G-d is one Lord.“?

No! Again, Genesis 1:1 proclaims the multi-dimensionality of G-d, which appears to be different individual beings, acting as one, within our Space-Time. When in reality, Elohim is infinitely multi-dimensional. He has no limits.

With that said, however, he appears to be limited because he does not arbitrarily break his laws of physics, except for times, where it suits his will or desire. This is the reason why God doesn't show himself to everyone, all the time. When he does, it is a temporary Space-Time representation of himself, such as "The Angel of God", "The Burning Bush", "The Column of Smoke of Fire", or my favorite, "Y'shua, The Son of God".

Therefore, we can confidently state that G-d inhabits eternity but exists in three spacial dimensions and one time dimension within our time-space. This theme is consistent throughout the Tanak, or Old Testament into the B’rit Hadashah, or New Testament.


  1. Multi-dimensional? Are you delusional? He's not mutli-dimensional, He's omni-dimensional. I think you limited God's existance. :) Had to do it.

  2. I stand corrected. We can't limit a limitless G-d. And yes....I am delusional and much more.
