We have entered the 6th month Elul of 5775. This is a very important month leading up to Tishrei and the High Holy Days. I would encourage you to find out more information on this month of preparation.
I want to share with you about: “G-d is event oriented and Man is time oriented”.
We can also look at this as, Hebrew mindset vs. Greek mindset.
You see in the beginning, Genesis (B’reshite) G-d spoke and events happened.
Such as 1:3-5, G-d said, Light Be! And there was light. and G-d saw the light, that it was good and G-d called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, day one. Events happened!
So let’s look a little further for events to happen. 1:14, Then G-d said, “Let lights in the expanse of the sky be for separating the day from the night. They will be for signs and for seasons and for days and years. Events happened!
When G-d set the lights (stars) in the sky (heavens) he put them in a perfect order for us to interpret by seeing the rotation of the constellations telling us a story. Every month has a meaning. This month of Elul is the month of Virgo or in Latin “Virgin”. This event then tells us scripturally about a Virgin to give birth. How do we know this? Let’s just look at Isaiah 7:14, Therefore Adonai Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin will conceive. When she is giving birth to a son, she will call his name Immanuel. Also Isaiah 9:5, For us a child is born, a son will be given to us, and the government will be upon his shoulder. his name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty G-d, My Father of Eternity, Prince of Peace.
By looking at G-d being event oriented we can expand our understanding into other realms, instead of looking at them time wise as to when the event will or will not happen.
Look at Abraham, He was born in the Hebrew year of 1948, an event (birth) happened. G-d called him out and he is to be a father of many nations.
B’reshite 15:7, And He said to him, “I Am the LORD Who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give you this land (Israel) to inherit it. Then in the Gregorian year of 1948 Israel became a Nation recognized globally. Is there a coincidence between the two dates of 1948. Or is G-d “Event Oriented?”
This is just a taste for us to see more clearly how perhaps G-d in His infinite wisdom operates. Maybe we should look at events happening around the world in order for us to have our house prepared for the return of the Messiah.
In the month of Elul let’s go out in the field to meet with the King, King Yeshua. He wants to know you personally as a son and daughter. This is the time for your event to happen.
