Remembering El

The Bible has brought forth many names for ancestors and descendants.

Our LORD takes the stage as God, YHWH, Yahweh, Yodh He Waw He, the list continues.

Because the Bible is the most popular trending of our world religions, I want to help bring attention to exploring a root of its history.

The Jews and some of their historical neighbours referred to God as “El” in ancient times.

When the LORD saved the Jews from slavery and structured them with his help he also gave them his name to be known as their LORD.

So in that time, simply, El became Yodh He Waw He.

Occasionally nowadays “El Shaddai” has been used as a nickname for our LORD.

WLTOP is meant to honor our ancestors and bring us together as one family.

Because of our goal, this page is here to record the name of one of our oldest ancestors as “El”.

In ancient times many places had worship to El and religious involvement, however over the years the practice of the name has become more and more lost, here we are attempting to keep the love for “El” alive.

If you are a fan of Greek religion, it is possible you will be pleased to know that “Cronus” is the Greek equivalent to “El”.

Ancient use of the name “El” was split in definement, it was used as a literal name to refer to the Creator, however some used it as a word to define the other word “Creator”.

Because the name/word “El” has had such a large impression in our history being used both as a name and word to explain Creator(s) I enjoy here to keep this record for our savings.

Throughout the use of “El” the word “Elohim” was brought forth which is translated as “Powers”.

“Elohim” has also been used as a word or nickname to describe the LORD.

With this page we remember the name and ancestor “El” also doing so, with good love.
