Tonight at sundown begins the 12th Biblical month of Elul. This is very significant beacause it is the time of Return and Repentance called in Hebrew, “Teshuvah.” Thirty days from tonight is Rosh Hashanah beginning the Feast of Tabernacles and 10 days after Rosh Hashanah is Yom Kippur, Day of Atonement. So the next 40 days is a time of repentance and returning back to Adonai your Father.
Seasons and timing are very important in Hebraic thought and to God. During this 40 day period the story of the prodigal son takes place. That is why every day the Father watches to see if his rebellious son is coming home. Because it is the 40 days of return, Teshuvah.
This month is also known as the month when the King is in your field, the Book of Ruth in the Old Testament. In Hebraic thought, all other time of the year the King is in his palace. To have an audience with him one must go to the palace hoping he is accessible. But during this month the King comes to your field. This is the Timing and Season Yeshua, King Jesus May return. I will blog on the significance of Rosh Hashanah, the Blowing of Trumpets in a later blog this month.
Join Debbie and me as we Return by confession, repentance, and reading the book of Ruth this month. It is customary to blow the trumpet (shofar) every day for the next 40 days as an Alarm in preparation for the Day of Atonement is approaching.
“Be careful your sins don’t find you out! Shalom!
