In the very first sentence of the Bible, the name (Elohim) of God is revealed and in the first sentence is grammatically incorrect. A plural noun and a singular verb, in this first sentence a mystery is revealed. The mystery is the singularity and plurality of God. In Hebrew, when you have a plural word that should be singular, it is telling you that there is something profound about the reality behind the word.
What is it telling you about God?
The reality of God is so transcendent, so awesome, and so beyond, that there is no word in any language that can express it, not even the word of God. The word Elohim is letting you know that whatever you think God is He is more than that. No matter how good you think He is, He is better. No matter how beautiful, majestic, and amazing, He is more beautiful, more majestic and amazing.
What does Elohim reveal? It reveals that no matter how much you think you know of God, there is always more to know, so much more.
Never stop seeing Him for his name is Elohim, and of his awesomeness, there will be no end.
Seek to know more of God, afresh, as if for the first time.
Author’s Note: this is a review of a devotional listing from “The Book of Mysteries” by Jonathan Cahn. It is sometimes hard to give an overall review on devotional books that I decided to take a day or two and have some fun with it. I hope that the information would interest you enough to buy the book and to enjoy the devotionals daily.
