Elul 21

Joel's message wants to make sure that we understand that which we seek:

Before the great and terrible day of the L-RD comes, I will set portents in the sky and on earth: blood and fire and pillars of smoke; the sun shall turn into darkness and the moon into blood. But everyone who invokes the name of the L-RD shall escape; for there shall be a remnant on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, as the L-RD promised. Anyone who invokes the L-RD will be among the survivors. (Joel 3:3-5, NJPS)

It will get worse before it gets better, but HaShem will show mighty signs, the like of which have never been seen before, to confirm His word and the approach of the end of the times.
