The Church of God got off track nearly from its modern envelopment from the 1930s. The Trinity had so taken root in modern Christianity that getting from 3 gods back to 1 god was going to take 70 more years and even then church tradition trumps biblical exegesis. Taking the step from 3 gods to 2 gods was a 1/3 step in the right direction, but were still 1/3 away from the truth that Satan has reserved for himself. In this final beast, this 8th world ruling empire and religion there is only one god! We know from scripture that the One God of Israel has warned his people of having other gods before Him. Now Elohim can be singular or plural and it is determined by the verb and the adjective being singular or plural in the sentence. Its interesting to note that the Jews are still waiting for a messiah from there God and Father to deliver them from oppression and to be there king. They wrote the old testament and understand the context of In The Beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Elohim here is a singular form it is the father and its really not in dispute by the Jews.
27 So Elohim created humans in his image.
In the image of Elohim he created them.
He created them male and female.
Note the singular pronouns His, He and he all denote singular.
Yeshua told her, “Believe me. A time is coming when you Samaritans won’t be worshiping the Father on this mountain or in Jerusalem. 22 You don’t know what you’re worshiping. We Jews know what we’re worshiping, because salvation comes from the Jews. 23 Indeed, the time is coming, and it is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth. The Father is looking for people like that to worship him. 24 God is a spirit. Those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”25 The woman said to him, “I know that the Messiah is coming. When he comes, he will tell us everything.” (Messiah is the one called Christ.)
26 Yeshua told her, “I am he, and I am speaking to you now.” I’am he the same as John 8:58
Jesus clearly teaches there is only one GOD AND HE CALLS HIM THE FATHER. Jesus also says he is not I am that I am, but I am He the promised seed from the father to Adam and all the forefathers.

For example God as one individual did not do all this work himself. God the Father was the chief executive who approved the final plans and gave the order of execution, while the God being who became Jesus Christ was the implementing Creator and had millions of angels to carry out His commands.
In the beginning there were two beings revealed to us by the term Elohim [meaning Mighty One’s] who had full executive authority, and one of these beings [who became the Father] approved everything and then entrusted the other [who became the Son] to carry out the actual creation on the earth, while God the Father oversaw the rest of the universe.
This sounds like something out of Annapolis Naval war college. It sounds good but its not biblical. Certainly Satan is a single being when he is called Elohim and Moses.
