What does GOD mean?
Elohim is one of the names of God that most commonly appear in the Bible.

וַיַּרְא֙ כׇּל־הָעָ֔ם וַֽיִּפְּל֖וּ עַל־פְּנֵיהֶ֑ם וַיֹּ֣אמְר֔וּ יְהֹוָה֙ ה֣וּא הָאֱלֹהִ֔ים יְהֹוָ֖ה ה֥וּא הָאֱלֹהִֽים׃

And Hashem created man in His image, in the image of Hashem He created him; male and female He created them.

Description about GOD
Elohim is one of the names of God that most commonly appear in the Bible. Simply understood, this name – the plural for “gods” – is deeply problematic. How can the world’s first monotheistic faith refer to the Creator as “gods,” in plural? But it actually makes perfect sense. In ancient times, people treated the forces of nature as their gods, worshiping the sun, moon and stars, among other things. Abraham, who was raised in this pagan society, ultimately realized that all of these forces were actually under the control and will of one single God. He then began revealing this truth to all he encountered. Abraham’s descendants continued his work and mission. Famously, the prophet Elijah challenged 850 idolatrous priests of Baal on Mount Carmel. After a Godly fire came down and consumed Elijah’s entire offering, the entire fell on their faces and cried out “Elohim is God, Elohim is God!” (I Kings 18:39). The people powerfully expressed their rediscovered belief that natural forces are not independent gods, but rather under the domain of the one true God. This is illustrated beautifully by the numerical value of the word Elohim, 86, which is the same numerical value as the Hebrew word ha’teva, which means “nature.” This connection reminds us that God both created and controls all that is in nature. There is nothing separate from him and all natural forces are tools He built into the creation of the world.
