Month of Elul
It is interesting to note that the month of Elul is the month that Jews consider to be the month that our God and King draws closes to us. It is said of the month that, “The King is standing in the field.” What that means is that the King has left His palace and has such a desire to be with his people that he has left all of his pomp and circumstance behind to come near to where they are that he loves. He has removed his royal robes to become as one of them. He bids them come, come my beloved let us commune together face to face.
The Jews who have not yet accepted Yeshua as their Jewish Messiah are looking for their King and Messiah in the field at this time of the year. We who know Yeshua recognize that 2,000 years ago, He left his heavenly palace, and left all his heavenly pomp and circumstance of His divinity behind to come to the field of earth to be near those he created and loves. He came to the field of our lives to commune face to face. For 2000 years our King has been plowing the fields of our lives preparing His bride for the wedding of the Messiah and the 1000 year reign.
I’d like to return to the Song of Solomon chapter 6 and dropping down to verse 13, we find here Solomon is crying out for the Shulimite. The book of the Song of Solomon is a prophetic look at Messiah and His Bride.
Solomon who is crying out for the Shulimite is a picture of Yeshua crying out for His Bride Church.
Son 6:13 Return, return, O Shulamite; return, return, that we may look upon thee. What will ye see in the Shulamite? As it were the company of two armies.
Throughout the Hebrew scripture when ever a word is repeated, like it is here with the word return, it is meant to emphasize its importance. The fact that the word return is repeated 4 times in this passage should be a signal for us to pay close attention.
Let’s take a look at this as it pictures Messiah and His Bride. Solomon is crying out to the Shulamite to return. Solomon’s name means prince of peace. Messiah is the Price of Shalom. The Shulamite represents the Bride of the Messiah and Shulamite means daughter of peace. So the picture is that of Messiah who is the Prince of Shalom is crying out to His Bride, who is the Daughter of Shalom. Based on the meaning of the Hebrew and the prophetic picture that is painted in the Song of Solomon of Messiah and His Bride, a deeper understanding could be interpreted like this.
Face me, come back to me, face me, come back to me, My Bride, O Daughter of Shalom, face me, come back to me, face me, come back to me, that we, i.e. Elohim, Abba, Yeshua, and the Ruach HaKodesh along with the angels may look upon thee. What will you see in Your Bride, the Daughter of Shalom? As it were, our gaze is upon a company of dancers, warriors, from Israel and warriors from the Gentiles nations dancing in unity as one man, My Bride, My Daughter of Shalom.
This biblical season of repentance is for 40 days. The first 30 days takes us to the first fall feast of “Trumpets”, or the Wedding of the Messiah, better known as the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah. One of the important messages of these 30 days is that everyone should repent before Rosh HaShanah, because there will be a moment in time when it will be too late to repent. Teshuva continues for 10 more days, these days are known as “The Days of Awe”, and they lead us to “The Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur.” A thorough study of these feasts can found at:
Yeshua has promised that He would have for Himself a glorious Church without spot or wrinkle. Repentance and forgiveness is the spot and wrinkle remover applied to her contrite heart. Elul is a time of refreshing. His Bride will be set apart and sanctified. His blood cleanses us and His word washes us. We are able to be in a continual shower of forgiveness when we embrace teshuva and as the Daughter of Shalom return to our Prince of Shalom and gaze into His beautiful face, as He gazes into Ours. Yeshua has provided everything needed for the Bride to prepare for Her wedding day including the season of Teshuva.
Eph 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
Eph 5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
Rev 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
I have written an article entitled “His Wife Has Made Herself Ready.” It can be viewed on my website for further study on the subject.
Pray for America!
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, [and] giving of thanks, be made for all men;
For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peacable life in all godliness and honesty.
For this is good and acceptble in the sight of God our Savior.
Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus (Yeshua)
