Elul 5782: August 28, 2022 - September 25, 2022

Welcome to the Hebrew month of Elul! Elul is the last month of the Hebrew civil calendar and is the sixth month on God’s spiritual calendar, counting from Nisan. It is a month that connects the past year with the coming year (5782 to 5783); a time when we reflect on where we are and where we should be going. In Aramaic the word “Elul” means “search”, which is appropriate considering this is the time of year we search our hearts. Elul is one of my favorite months. It is rich, full of an abundance of knowledge, wisdom, revelation, hope, preparation, restoration, and divine design!

Elul in Hebrew is- aleph, lamed, vav, lamed.

It is an acronym of Song of Solomon 6:3 - “I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine!” This month is a time when closeness and intimacy with God is established. Our arms open to embrace Him and His arms are always open to embrace us! We were created by Him, and for Him, and we will not be satisfied without Him!

This is the month that the “King is in the field”!

You see, one month each year a king would leave his palace of protection and strict protocol, and set up his royal tent among the people. He made himself, his presence, available to everyone. There is heightened accessibility to God during Elul; a SUPERNATURAL ACCESS, if you will. He meets you where you are, wanting to connect with you in the everyday affairs of life! It reminds me of Isaiah 55:6 - “Seek the Lord Yahweh when He makes himself approachable; call upon Him when you sense He is near.” God wants his people to experience His character.  He wants to manifest His Justice, His righteousness, and His love. Of course, the greatest King who left His throne to come into the field was Jesus.  He lived in our field in a tent of mortal flesh.  He was God made accessible, smiling and radiant.  He came to manifest God’s goodness, love and righteousness… to heal and deliver ALL.  He came to draw us into a relationship with the Father. That’s what it truly looks like when the king is in the field!!
