B. Holy Echad Marriage & the Elohim Principle
8. What is Elohim?
8.1 In Scripture the word 'elohim' is used to describe Yahweh our Heavenly Father (the Supreme or Almighty Elohim), Yah'shua the Messiah His divine Son, the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit), malakim (angels), demons (fallen angels), pagan deities (idols and the demonic powers behind them) and human rulers (especially the judges in Israel).
8.2 Because of our continued use of the word 'God' and 'gods' there has been confusion as to why this word is used of both Deity, angels and man, and many have wrongly assumed that everyone (including man) can become deity.
8.3 It must therefore be said that all powers or elohim are derived from the Most High, El Elyon, or Yahweh-Elohim, so that nobody apart from Yahweh is an 'independent power'.
8.4 It was the illusion that angels could become independent of Yahweh that led Lucifer (Heylel) to make his fateful choice to rebell and it is the same choice that all men and women make when they rebell against Yahweh's sovereignty.
