Elul- Nehemiah 6:15 The Rhema word for today 11-10-12
Now I’m not a Jew by birth, Okay. I am grafted into the Tree of Life however. We had the Word a few days ago about the rebuilding of the walls, etc… Well maybe I’m a little behind and playing catch up but it looks now that my turning Messianic in August was dead on. I lost my job over it. Yup- told my employer I couldn’t work the Sabbath anymore.(Jewish Sabbath- The beast could care less about SUNday). I know NOTHING about the Jewish calendar hardly. I did do Rosh Hashanah this year though and went to Synagog. Now get a Load of this WORD. YHWH says the wall will be finished the 5th day of ELUL. That’s right. He has fortified his ELECT and they are intact as of that date. Here’s the wikilinks:
Elul usually occurs in August–September on the Gregorian calendar. The name of the month, like the names of the rest of the Hebrew calendar months, was brought from the Babylonian Exile, and has originated from the Akkadian word for “Harvest”. In the Jewish tradition, the month of Elul is a time of repentance in preparation for the High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. The word “Elul” is similar to the root of the verb “search”.Elul is seen as a time to search one’s heart and draw close to God in preparation for the coming Day of Judgement, Rosh Hashanah, and Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur.During the month of Elul, there are a number of special rituals leading up to the High Holy Days. It is customary to blow the shofar every morning (except on Shabbat) from Rosh Hodesh Elul (the first day of the month) until the day before Rosh Hashanah. The blasts are meant to awaken one’s spirits and inspire him to begin the soul searching which will prepare him for the High Holy Days. As part of this preparation, Elul is the time to begin the sometimes-difficult process of granting and asking for forgiveness.Many Jews also visit the graves of loved ones throughout the month in order to remember and honor those people in our past who inspire us to live more fully in the future.Another social custom is to begin or end all letters written during the month of Elul with wishes that the recipient have a good year. The standard blessing is “K’tiva VaHatima Tova” (“a good writing and sealing [of judgement]”), meaning that the person should be written and sealed in the Book of Life for a good year.
Our GOD is AMAZING… He also impressed on my to go visit my mother’s grave. I heard the shofar blown for the first time in my life this past Sept at Rosh Hashanah. Folk, this is so SERIOUS. Yom Kippur was it for this year. If your not SEALED by now your LOST. “K’tiva VaHatima Tova”
