|One of the most common names for God is EL. Elohim is three Hebrew words put together. El=God, oh=comes from the Hebrew word "To be," or Ha'Yah. And the im=the plural. Thus, it could mean "God exists in a plural!" This then would open the door for the trinity. Other related words:|
Elohim can mean "the Superior, the supreme, the mighty God." "Kho-seed" is translated as "Towards God." The Old Testament has many names for God. The New Testament has basically only two names: Theos, the most common name, and, Lord, Kurios.
In the New Testament there is also the Greek name for God: "Despotees." Or, "Despot." It is usually translated as Lord or Master. God is the Despot over His creation and over all men on the earth! This means He is the sovereign and the all ruling One. The references for Despot: Luke 2:29; Acts 4:24; 2 Thess 2:21; 2 Peter 2:1; and Rev. 6:10.
In 2 Peter 2:1 Despot is translated as "the Master" and it is referring to Christ, who is "the [rejected] Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves." By the way, this is a verse that flies in the face of Limited Atonement. Christ is the Master who paid even for the sins of those who reject Him! --Dr. Mal Couch (12/10)
