Elul – Day 30

Posted by on Sep 29, 2019 | 0 comments

THE KING IS ON THE THRONE! The King of Kings has approached his throne and is about to take his seat.  The time of Elul, of preparation, has come to an end. We no longer can run out to the field and walk casually to and fro among the daises and wildflowers with our Father. We must now approach the throne room and be admitted in, bowing and bending as we go. Will we have the scepter raised as it was raised for Esther? Are we ready to don the white garments of a bride? The ledgers lay on the table close to the throne…it is almost time for the King to open them and compare our past...

In the purest sense of the word, compassion is simply stepping out of your own box, removing the boundaries that you have set for yourself to keep your heart intact. You could actually switch out the word compassion…and use the word love.

DO YOU PRAY FOR FORGIVENESS? It is during this season, the season where the King is in the field, that we examine our hearts, our lives, our motives, our agendas and return back to the ways of our King, our Messiah. During this time, the traditional prayers are ones that all ask our Creator, our Father, to forgive us. The three prayers that are customary are called selach lanu, mechal lanu and kapper lanu. The words may seem a bit different, but they all mean the same thing, howbeit with different implications. Not only do they implore us to seek forgiveness from God – we need to seek...

WHOSE SHOULDERS DO YOU STAND ON? This is the final week of the month of Elul, the Hebrew month before the Fall Feast Days of the LORD begin… Can you feel the change of the weather? Can you sense the excitement in the air? I know I can! During this final week it is customary to begin reading the Selichot prayers. These are penitential prayers and poems that lead us further into examining our hearts and seeking forgiveness from those we have wronged, and seeking reconciliation from those who have wronged us. Whether reconciliation and forgiveness follows our attempts is not the only goal...
