Wednesday with Gimel

The Jewish calendar month of Elul


Elul is from the tribe of Gad, the seventh son of Jacob. Elul is the sixth of the twelve months of the Jewish calendar. 

It is the month of repentance, mercy, and forgiveness. It’s also the month to fix our brokenness, to be nurtured, and to find your resting place in the Lord and let him by your strong and mighty tower. This is a good traditional month. It is the last month of the old year, it connects the past year with the coming year. It precedes the “fall feast.” The days from the Feast of Trumpets to the Feast of Tabernacles are the holiest days in the biblical calendar.

The letter Yod is associated with Elul.

The original pictograph is an arm with an open hand.The meaning of the word Yod is “Jew.” This represents Yahweh bringing the Israelites out of Egypt with a mighty hand. The outstretched hand of Yod indicates that something is held. Power and might fall into one’s hand. We work. create, and worship Yahweh with our outstretched lifted hands.


Elul is the month the King is in the field. 

There was only one month the king came down off his throne to be approachable in the field. The other months the king lived in the palace and was very protected by guards and gates. You could only approach the king through very high security. You were very careful how you looked and what you said as you approached him. Then there was that one month that the king left the palace and went among his people. His royal tent was set in a field near a town and he welcomed those who wanted to to see him. An announcement went out: “The king is in the field!” God is approachable in this month of Elul as well. He desires to meet with you in your everyday life. He comes into your field of your life and makes himself accessible. He can manifest himself anywhere and anytime.

Think about Jesus as the king in the field. Elul is a picture of the earthly ministry of Jesus John 1:12 describes Jesus’ coming this way: “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.” The word dwelling is actually the word for “tent” or “tabernacle.” Jesus, the King of the universe left his palace and came to, tabernacle among us. He lived here in our field, in a tent of mortal flesh. For 33 years, the King was in the field on earth.


We can respond and run to him in the field and tabernacle with him. 

Are we worrying about things? Can we just rest in him and trust him? Do we have cares and anxieties in our lives, our businesses, or finances? We can cast those cares and anxieties on him who cares for us and allow him to shine his favor on us. Are we isolating ourselves in any way? God created Eve for Adam. The Lord created the tribes and their function was to be a community as well as protection for each other. If you need to go through a wilderness season then let someone or others go with you altogether. That is living above the sun! 

Others can help guide, teach, and bring you along in areas you have not arrived at yet. We all have our gifts and callings that each of us are not only good at but living above the sun we become amazing at! Together in communities, like ATSTT we can help each other in our uniqueness.

This month look closely at these areas:

  • Relationships
  • Negative thoughts
  • Intents of the heart
  • Mercy and forgiveness
  • Dreams and visions
  • Intimacy with YHVH
  • Worship
  • Healing needs


YHVH is the name of God. When you add the Hebraic letter Shin, YHSVH you put yourself in the middle of Yahweh.

Yod, Hei, Shin, Vav, Hei

I find, when I say each letter and hold the sound of each one and repeat it brings a reset in my frequency which affects my soul, body, and spirit. It is all in the sound and vibration of your breath! If you would like to, engage with each letter and see what your results will be then give it a try! Blessings!

P.S.: There are two books I like to study about all the Jewish months. Most of the information about this month came from these amazing books: Healing in the Hebrew months: Exploring Hebrew Letters, Gematria, and their Musical Frequencies - by Del Hungerford, and A Time to Advance: Understanding the Significance of the Hebrew Tribes and Months - by Chuck Pierce; Robert Heidler; Linda Heidler.
