ELUL 29 - A Day Packed With Meaning
Events & Meaning of Elul 29

This coming Sunday (September 13, 2015) marks the end of the Hebrew year which is ELUL 29 on that calendar. This day is packed with meaning and events which is very applicable to the LDS community as well.

Along with this day (and season) is a unique sign in the heavens which should awaken us to the reality of what is happening around us.

In the following posts, details of some of the unique characteristics of this special day are listed.

The last day of the Hebrew Year Elul 29 of 5775
On the Hebrew calendar, this is the last day of the year. On this calendar, the next day starts at sunset instead of midnight.

The Last day of the current Shemittah or Sabbatical year
Significant events in history have occurred during Shemittah years.

A Shemittah year is the seventh year or "sabbatical year" in a seven year agricultural cycle, mandated by the Torah for the Land of Israel, and means, “to release!” The crops are not sown or harvested and the trees and vineyards are not pruned. The number SEVEN means completion and termination, and is of great significance. Most of the significant events in religious history have been associated with Holy days, such as this.

The last day of the current ‘super’ Jubilee cycle
(7th of seven, 7-year cycles or 49 year cycle)

Seven of these seven-year cycles, make up the 49 years of the Jubilee cycle. A cycle of seven weeks points to the 50th day, called Pentecost. And a cycle of seven sets of seven years points to the 50th year, the year of Jubilee.

At sunset on this day is the beginning of the
Feast of Trumpets or Rosh Hashanah

The Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah) occurs on the 1st day of Tishrei (in the 7th month) on the Hebrew civil calendar, but actually begins at sunset on the previous day. This day is also called the Feast of Trumpets. The Feast of Trumpets reflects God’s desire to summon His people to repentance in order to vindicate them on the day of His judgment. It is Israel’s final harvest of souls.

Dow fell 684 points (or 7%)
17 Sept 2001 or Elul 29
Dow fell 777.7 points (or 7%)
29 SEPT 2008 or Elul 29

Because of the exactness of the dates, the exaggerated appearance of the number 7, the meaning of this particular day, the eclipse of the sun on the next occurrence of this date, and other factors – this series of events, strongly suggest that some future event will occur on or around the next Shemittah year-end date of Sept. 13, 2015.

The last day of the 70th Jubilee cycle since the time of Joshua

The wall of protection which has surrounded this blessed country since man was first permitted to come here, will come crashing down just as the walls of Jericho came tumbling down when Joshua marched around it. The Lord promised protection around this choice land as long as its inhabitants would keep the commandments of the Lord and serve God.

The end of 120 ‘Jubilee years’ since Adam
(120 X 50 = 6000 years) (Moses 8:17) (Genesis 6:3)

Noah preached to the people for 120 years. Then the flood came. This verse also refers to the age of mankind, the time they will have before they will be destroyed, if they do not repent. When 6000 years have gone by, then comes the Millenium, prefaced by the flood waters of destruction and the building of Zion.

The Sun will be darkened on this day (solar eclipse)

The Lord put His own exclamation mark on this day by darkening the sun as a sign and warning to us.

 Signs Foretold
But, behold, I say unto you that before this great day shall come the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall be turned into blood, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and there shall be greater signs in heaven above and in the earth beneath. . . (D&C 29:14)

You should understand that Biblical Holy days are God’s holy days – days such as Passover, Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah), Day of Atonement (Yom Kipper), and Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot). He uses these special days to convey the Lord’s timetable of events in the last days, to warn us of destructive events to come, and to communicate His plan for mankind during the final winding up scenes.

For example, September 22, 1827 was the day Moroni delivered the plates to Joseph Smith. It was also the very day that the Jewish community celebrated the holy day of Feast of Trumpets. This day, by Jewish tradition, was the Beginning of Israel’s final harvest of souls. (See January 2000 Ensign)

Jewish scholars teach that the final spiritual gathering of Israel would begin with the Feast of Trumpets. The ‘Feast of Trumpets’ also symbolizes the Day God Set to Remember His Promises. According to Jewish tradition, it was on this day that ...

1) Israelites were freed from slavery in Egypt
2) Israel celebrated their return from captivity in Babylon.
3) God fulfilled His promise to Sarah, Rachel, and Hannah on this special day by their becoming fruitful after barrenness.

By the same token, the signs in the heavens today that are occurring on Holy Days, should be very meaningful to us. The signs tell a story, or parable, that the Lord wants us to hear. They warn us of events that are going to occur. They provide evidence of the Lord’s timetable of events. And they bear witness that the Lord is actively engaged in the heavens.

When God said “Let there be lights in the firmament” He also said, “Let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and for years.” (Genesis 1:14, Moses 2:14, Abraham 4:14). In this context, the Hebrew word for ‘signs’ is “OWTH.” This word means “miraculous sign” or “warning” and implies that these heavenly bodies were created to convey timetables, warnings or significant events at particular times to His covenant people.

In the above context, the Hebrew word for "seasons" is “mow’ed.” “The word "mow’ed" implies that God has a calendar on which He keeps predetermined "appointments" that are connected with "His Feasts or Holy Days.” Also, when "days and years" are used, it refers to Biblical “days and years" or "holy days.”

The Lord’s Warning of Significant Events to Come

This year, Elul 29 (September 13, 2015) will be an historic day. It is commonly viewed as the last day of the final Shemittah year of the current ‘super’ 49-year Jubilee cycle. And more significantly, it is viewed as the end of the 70 Jubilee years since Joshua.

The 70th Jubilee, on the Jewish calendar is a much anticipated and celebrated year. By most accounts, September 13, 2015 marks the end of the 49th year, as well as a Shemittah year. September 14, 2015 is the beginning of the 70th Jubilee year since Joshua crossed over the River Jordan. (This is a very significant year). The coming Jubilee intends to wrap up this present evil age and usher in the next. For the righteous, it will be a joyful celebration.

There are some who may not agree that this year is the final Shemittah year or the end of the 70th Jubilee cycle. But the Lord seems to have put His mark of approval on the timing and accuracy of these events. He has put a spectacular sign and omen in the skies this year which far exceeds the limit of probability of it happening by chance.

This sign is shown on the next page, but below are some significant highlights:

NOTE: ‘Perfect Alignment’ refers to a pair of solar or lunar eclipses whose distance in days from the first eclipse to a specific mid-point date, matches the number of days from the mid-point date to the second eclipse.

1. Four Blood Moons, each falling on Biblical Holy Days. Each of these two pairs of eclipses have perfect alignment. And this won’t occur again for over 500 years!

2. Two solar eclipses, both falling on Biblical Holy Days, and with perfect alignment. Instead of the mid-point date, these solar eclipses align perfectly with the Hebrew year – the first falling on the exact mid-point of the year, and the last falling on ELUL 29, the last day of the year !

3. All eclipses within this decade (2010 to 2019), 40 in total or 20 pairs, ALL have perfect alignment. If just one pair did not meet the test, this would not be a perfect sign! Would you expect anything less of God Almighty? We are quite sure that a sign such as this, with perfect alignment, has never occurred before.
This sign in the heavens is a warning to us. I believe that the Lord, in His way, is communicating His plan to us, and providing a warning that we need to repent and prepare for the days ahead.

Here are 11 reasons why the shofar is blown:

We’re familiar with the sights, tastes, and sounds of Rosh Hashanah—the sweet sensation of honey on our tongues, the rhythmic swaying of the congregation in prayer, the cry of the shofar piercing the air. But have we ever stopped to think about the messages behind the deeds of the day?

While every commandment is essentially supra-rational—performed solely because it is the will and command of the Creator—our sages have found meaning and messages behind the commandments we fulfill. Let’s take a look at 11 reasons given for blowing the shofar on Rosh Hashanah.

1. The Return of the King

On Rosh Hashanah, the anniversary of creation, G‑d renews the creative energy that sustains our world. Once more, He is crowned as King of the universe. Just as trumpets are sounded at a coronation, the shofar announces G‑d’s continued kingship.

2. The Great Alarm Clock

On Rosh Hashanah, the first of the Ten Days of Repentance, we awake from our spiritual slumber. The shofar is like an alarm that calls on us to examine our deeds and correct our ways, as we return to G‑d.

3. The Reminder

The shofar was blown at Mt. Sinai when the Torah was given. On Rosh Hashanah, we blow the shofar to remind us to rededicate ourselves to Torah study—and to remind G‑d of our original commitment and sincerity.

4. The Voice

The shofar reminds us of the voice of the prophets, who like the blast of the shofar called upon us to correct our ways, follow G‑d’s commandments, and act properly with others.

5. The Tears

The shofar’s cry reminds us of the cries and tears shed for the destruction of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, galvanizing us to bring Moshiach and hasten the rebuilding of the Temple.

6. The Sacrifice

The shofar, made of a ram’s horn, reminds us of the binding of Isaac and the ram G‑d provided as a sacrifice in his place. By blowing the shofar, we remember the faith of the Patriarchs and our own capacity for self-sacrifice.

7. The Awesome

The shofar fills us with awe and humility as we contemplate the true infinitude of G‑d, how He fills all space and time.

8. The Introspection

The shofar will be blown on the Day of Judgment when Moshiach comes. We thus blow the shofar on Rosh Hashanah to remind us to examine our deeds and contemplate how we can improve them.

9. The Celebration

The shofar blast will signal the return of the Jewish people when Moshiach comes. We blow the shofar on Rosh Hashanah to remind us of G‑d’s salvation in our own lives.

10. The Unity

The shofar blast when Moshiach comes will herald a time of universal understanding and recognition of G‑d’s unity. We blow the shofar on Rosh Hashanah to remind us of G‑d’s unity.

11. The Scream

The call of the shofar on Rosh Hashanah reminds us of the primordial scream, the eternal voiceless call of the soul expressing its desire to return to its Creator.
