Confusion on El / YHWH

That's the main point. That El in its Original Language - Paleo Hebrew - means the 'Strong Monad who Guides Us'. It differentiates El, the Creator God who is manifest into Creation, from the God we refer to as the Father, who is the Infinite Light above.

Just adding some entomological knowledge about the origin and meaning of the Word 'El'. A piece of the mystery School puzzle of the Bible whether you are looking at it esoterically or academically. To understand the meaning of YHVH is a deeply esoteric and a spiritual Journey inward that literally transcends words and knowledge. But the word El and Elohim is entirely graspable by the thinking mind.
