Elul – Beloved’s Harvest

I belong to my beloved
and he belongs to me

Song of Songs 6:3

6th Month - Elul:  (12th Month of Civil Year) 
A month of processing grapes, figs, almonds & olives  

The four letters of the name Elul
are an acronym for the phrase in
Song of Solomon 6:3

Vav is the 6th letter in the Hebrew alphabet and is a connecting letter. It is a hook, a spear, a tent peg and connects things together. The letter Vav in Hebrew literally implies the connecting between heaven and earth. This month of Elul is a special time of connecting Heaven and Earth; our hearts with His heart. 

 It is called “the month of repentance,” “the month of mercy”
and “the month of forgiveness.”
The Month of Elul begins the 40 days of preparation for the High Holy Days 
leading to the Day of Atonement. This is a time of fasting, prayer and repentance to ready one’s self for the Day of Atonement (fulfilled in Christ's sacrifice/covering for our sins).
Elul follows the two previous months of Tammuz
and Av— (in the Hebrew calendar) the twelfth month of the civil and sixth of
the religious year, usually coinciding with parts of August and September.

40 days of Teshuvah
Repentance (Hebrew: תשובה‎, literally, "return", pronounced tshuva or teshuva)

Graphic from the following - see for more insight:
A Call to Repent:

Elul brings the daily blowing of the shofar
Repentance (Hebrew: תשובה, literally, "return," pronounced "tshuva" or "teshuva")
 is one element of atoning for sin.

An Exhortation to Repentance
Return, O Israel, to the LORD your God, for you have stumbled by your iniquity. Bring your confessions and return to the LORD. Say to Him: “Take away all our iniquity and receive us graciously, that we may present the fruit of our lips. Assyria will not save us, nor will we ride on horses. We will never again say, ‘Our gods!’ to the work of our own hands. For in You the orphan finds compassion.”…
Hosea 14:1-3  Berean Study Bible

The month of Elul is a month of preparation for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
That’s why Jews blow the shofar (almost) every day of the month.

Hebrewאֱלוּל‎, Elul is the sixth month of the ecclesiastical year on the Hebrew calendar and twelfth month of the Jewish civil year. It is a summer month of 29 days.  Elul is an Akkadian word for "harvest." 
The word "Elul" is similar to the root of the verb "search" in Aramaic. The Hebrew word "Elul" can be understood to be an acronym for the phrase "Ani L'dodi V'dodi Li" – "I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine." 
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.

Understanding the sin-filled world where we live that easily deceives and ensnares us is a daily battle.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off every encumbrance and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with endurance the race set out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.…
Hebrews 12:1-2

Our hearts grieve for all things to be set right.

Listen, my son, and be wise, and guide your heart on the right course.
Proverbs 23:19


Revelation 1:8
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending,
saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

When we LOOK UP we see the clock 
- God's created timepiece as presented in the sky! 
We are near the midnight hour! 

This gives new meaning to the reference of MIDNIGHT -
Matthew 25:6
And at midnight there was a cry made,
Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.


So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, 
called the Devil and Satan,

who deceives the whole world; 
he was cast to the earth, 
and his angels were cast out with him.

Revelation 12:9  (Also Daniel 7:24-25)

Unlike our, Western - Gregorian, calendar the biblical calendar dates
 can not be predetermined, but are fixed by observation. 

In Genesis 1:14
GOD said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky
..... to serve to mark the seasons and days of years."

Shofar with Psalm 27 for Elul - 

shofar / shophar: a horn (for blowing)  שׁוֹפָר

The four letters in the Hebrew word shofar are Sheen ~ Vav ~ Pey ~ Reysh. 

The Amazing Mystery to be Found in the Word 'Shofar'
Let’s discover the hidden meaning in these letters that lies just beneath the surface. 

The central observance of Rosh Hashanah is blowing the shofar (ram’s horn) on both mornings of the holiday (except on Shabbat), which is normally done in synagogue as part of the day’s services but may be done elsewhere for those who cannot attend.

Aug 24 - Sanhedrin Requests To Blow Shofar on Temple Mount for Rosh Hashanah/Yom Teruah, 5781/2020
“Jews are only permitted to enter the Temple Mount five days a week: Sunday to Thursday. This year, the first day of Rosh Hashanna is on Saturday, the Sabbath. According to Jewish law, it is forbidden to blow the shofar on the Sabbath except for on the Temple Mount. So we submitted a request to permit a group of Jews to do so; to blow the shofar on the Temple Mount on the first day of Rosh Hashana,” Aviad Vosoli, Land of Israel Organization.

Stones Cry Out

But some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Him,
“Teacher, rebuke Your disciples!”
“I tell you, He answered, “if they remain silent, 
the very stones will cry out.”
As Jesus approached Jerusalem and saw the city, 
He wept over it and said,
“If only you had known on this day what would bring you peace!
But now it is hidden from your eyes.

Luke 19:39-42
The Triumphal Entry - Stones cry out!!
Berean Study Bible · 

Our hearts are heavy for Jerusalem!  Our prayers go up to the heavenly throne!

The recent events at the Western Wall and in the city of Jerusalem continue to call our attention.
The boulder falling at the time of Tisha B’Av fast is a huge sign - it spoke to many!
According to Torah calendar it was on the exact day!

July 23, 2018 - Ancient boulder dislodges from Western Wall, crashes down near woman at prayerThe incident came a day after the platform was filled with worshippers marking the Tisha B’Av fast, which honors the destruction of the two Jewish temples in Jerusalem. “This is an unusual and most rare incident that has not occurred for decades,” said Western Wall Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitch. “The fact that this powerful incident happened a day after the 9th of Av fast, in which we mourned the destruction of our temples, raises doubts and questions which the human soul is too small to contain, and requires soul-searching.” Record 1,440 Jews visit Temple Mount for Tisha B’Av. A record 1,440 Jews visited the Temple Mount on Sunday to commemorate the Fast of Tisha B’Av. The total was provided by the Yeraeh organisation, which facilitates Jewish visits to the Temple Mount. Last year nearly 1,300 visited the siteSo 140 more visited this bringing the record total to 1,440.
Archaeologist says entire Western Wall is ‘danger zone,’ public should stay awayWarning of ‘multiple cracks’ after boulder falls, Zachi Dvira says people should not be allowed near holy site — neither in the mainstream prayer pavilion nor at Robinson’s ArchThe Times of Israel on Monday after inspecting the Western Wall following the fall of a Herodian-era stone that the whole area is a “danger zone.”

Blood moon‘ on its way – with God of War in towFiery Mars will add to the spectacle as it appears directly below the blood moon at close to its maximum brightness5 reasons why this week’s lunar eclipse is going to be a rare celestial delight. Aside from being the longest eclipse of the century, totality will focus on the Middle East. The Mars (War) factor shines light on the geographic location that happens to be embroiled in the greatest conflict. What is equally as interesting is how so few countries (seen below in white) don’t witness any of it. More specifically, the only countries that are not “touched” by either the partial or total eclipse are The United States, Canada, Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, Cuba and Greenland. 

I also noted this and surrounding July events:

Daniella Goldberg stands close to the spot where a large stone dislodged from the Western Wall in Jerusalem Old City on July 23, 2013, at the mixed-gender prayer section. The boulder fell close to where Goldberg was praying, damaging the platform. (Yonatan Sindel/Flash90)

July 25 - Fallen Western Wall Stone Removed - Lifted by Crane

     August 2, 2018 - Heavy-hearted for Jerusalem –

United States Council General of Jerusalem wished everyone a 'safe and happy Pride' on the official US Council General

U.S. Embassy in Israel

This march is associated with turning the Torah on its head by redefining and supporting that which is prohibited by the Torah. Controlling one’s desires is a cornerstone of the Torah, a prerequisite for acquiring wisdom and communing with the Divine.  ... calls on all people who treasure Scripture and tradition to protest peaceably this grave affront to the holy City of Jerusalem. All people are welcome in Jerusalem. However, Jerusalem is designated as sacred and cannot be the stage for protests against the Torah. The RAA/Igud supports the call of Jerusalem’s Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar to remove this march from the City of Jerusalem.
May the One who makes peace in the Heavenly heights make peace upon us and upon all Israel, Amen
... starting point in Liberty Bell Park

So many reminders right now of the JERUSALEM / SALEM connections and last year's eclipse.
Thinking of all the Salems in the eclipse path and the sync with Jerusalem.

nachash: a serpent
Original Word: נָחָשׁ

The Hebrew word nahash is used to identify the serpent that appears in Genesis 3:1, in the Garden of Eden. In Genesis, the serpent is portrayed as a deceptive creature or trickster, who promotes as good what God had forbidden, and shows particular cunning in its deception

Snake wriggles out of Israel's Western Wall sparking claims prophecy about 'coming of the Messiah' is coming true
Snake filmed scaring a pigeon while crawling between stone of the Western Wall
Hebrew bloggers claim the symbol is an indication of the Messiah's coming
Pigeon represents Israel while snake represents evil which plagues it, they say


Oct 31 - (Wednesday/Mercury day/Halloween) Prayers at the Western Wall were unexpectedly interrupted on Wednesday night when a snake slithered out from stones above the women’s prayer section. He identified the snake as a coin-marked snake, an indigenous species which looks threatening but is non-poisonous. The snake seemed to be in pursuit of pigeons, or their eggs, and was likely trying to fatten up for the winter… The sudden appearance of a serpent emerging from Judaism’s holiest site prompted speculation among internet commentators, some of which who drew connections to Adam and Eve, and predicted both the coming of the Messiah and bad tidings for the people of Israel.

Yirmiyahu - Jeremiah - Chapter 31:15
So says the Lord: Refrain your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears, for there is reward for your work, says the Lord, and they shall come back from the land of the enemy.

The prophet continues in the name of Gd. Yes, Rachel, all those nights and days, all those acts of lovingkindness, are seen and will not go unrewarded. Because of your tears and your selflessness, your children will return and the redemption will come.
Mama Rachel died in the only month of the year, Marcheshvan, “Bitter Cheshvan,” that contains neither a festive holiday nor a communal fast day. She died in a mundane month devoid of festival, devoid of tragedy. It’s a month of daily routine.
Our mother Rachel is inconsolable as she sees her children, her nation, in pain.

I will refresh the priests with abundance, and My people will be filled with My bounty,” declares the LORD. This is what the LORD says: “A voice is heard in Ramah, mourning and great weeping, Rachel weeping for her children, and refusing consolation, because they are no more.” This is what the LORD says: “Keep your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears, for the reward for your work will come, declares the LORD. Then your children will return from the land of the enemy.…
