Elul marks Moshe’s second ascent to receive the tablets, and the shofar blast is meant to serve as an announcement of that fact. This announcement contains two central messages: first, notification to all of Israel, by means of the shofar blast, that Moshe is ascending to receive the Torah; second, a cry or warning to prevent further sin and idolatry.
Rabbi Korcha says “The first aspect – the notification as to Moshe’s ascent – was meant to tell the nation, The road is long and difficult. You have to prepare yourselves; you have to know what you’re headed for. You are preparing to receive the Torah. Our first task for the month of Elul is to mark our destination, our goal.” From August 19 to 29 prayer each morning @ 5am Praying for more spiritual wisdom:
DO IT! Follow through of Godly goals 1st; secular goals secondly. We pray to raise our standards to meet Yahovah's standards and this will ultimately bring our personal character up to his standard!
He is in the field listening, not just for things for this life but goals for the Kingdom in the next life!The month of Elul is a time of repentance in preparation for the High Holidays of Yom Teru and Yom Kippur. Tradition teaches that the month of Elul is a particularly propitious time for repentance. This mood of repentance builds through the month of Elul to the period of Selichot, to Yom Yeruah, and finally to Yom Kippur.
