The word God defined
Ask most Christians to define the word "God" and most will tell you that it is the name of the Almighty Creator of the Heavens and the Earth. Some
would also reply to you that this title also refers to Jesus, the one they refer to as the son of God. Some Christians would say that both the
Almighty Father Creator, and the Son of the Father (Jesus) are both God. Ask a Muslim or most any other man or woman of a different religion from
Christianity, and they will reply in a similar manner, except that most would exclude Jesus from the title of God. Is this entity, the one that most
people refer to as their God, the same God regardless of one's Race, color or religion?
All those whose religion is Islam (Arabs and others) make their prayer and petitions to the entity with the title God, the same title as a Christian
would use. So who or what do we refer to when we use the term God?
Gad is a Syrian or Canaanite deity of good luck or fortune. In Hebrew, it is written GD, but with Massoretic vowel-pointing, it is "Gad." Other
Scriptural references to a similar deity, also written GD, have a vowel-pointing giving us "Gawd" or "God." Gad, or Gawd is identified with
Jupiter, the Sky-deity or the Sun-deity.
In the Greek, the word God is a translation of the word "Theos" meaning Mighty One. This can refer to any person, man or in some cases non-man. The
context determines the meaning. Assuming the word always refers to a non-man is error, as the Greek referred to many with authority as "Theos"
The word "God (or god)" is a title, translating the Hebrew Elohim (or elohim), El (or el), and Eloah, meaning strength, powerful one(s). However, it
is often incorrectly used as a substitute for the Tetragrammaton (YHVH). YAHWEH, or the more accurate YAHUWEH pronounced YAH-OO-AY. Yahweh is the
proper personal name of the Creator. Where Elohim is the Hebrew word with the English meaning of "Mighty One(s)" the Greek word with the English
meaning of Mighty One is "Theos." Neither word can be directly related or assumed to be equal to the name Yahweh, the Almighty Creator, because this
would be error. See the "word" God
According to Encyclopedia Britannica, GOD is the common Teutonic word for a personal object of religious worship, applied to all the superhuman beings
of the heathen mythologies, and various kinds of idols. The word "god" on the conversion of the Teutonic races to Christianity was adopted as the
name of the One Supreme Being, but this is error. The correct personal proper name of the One Supreme Being is Yahweh. Encyclopedia of Religion and
Ethics and Webster's Twentieth Century Dictionary, Unabridged agree that the origin of the word God, is Teutonic paganism.
In Indo-Germanic dictionaries, only one word resembles "god." It is ghodh and is pronounced the same. This word means union, also sexual union or
mating. According to Luneburger Wörterbuch, the following are the same word: Gott, got, gode, gade, god and guth (gud). True Believers should never
use the word 'God', when referring to Yahshua, Yahweh, or El Elyon.
However, assuming the term God is strictly defined as Mighty One, or Powerful One, a substitute word for the Hebrew "Elohim," and for the Greek word
"Theos," then we can agree that "The Assembly of Yahweh, Cascade, believes that the Almighty Creator of all things whose proper name is YHWH
(Yahweh) can be referred to as Mighty One (God). We can equally state, that Yahshua (J_sus) is also a Mighty One, who has been given great power
"from Yahweh," therefor Yahshua is also a God (a mighty one). However, is Yahshua the same God as is Yahweh? Or are both a part of an equal God-head
or Trinity? The answer is clearly No.
There are many definitions of the word " God" . Depending on which definition you use. It could be an alien. It could be a very intelligent person
that led a community. It could be the one creator. Jesus said " I will always be with you, look into your mind and i will be there" or something to
that effect. Maybe " God " is inside us all.
