Elul 20

The prophet moves on from the physical to the spiritual blessings:

After that, I will pour out My spirit on all flesh; your sons and daughters shall prophesy; your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions. I will even pour out My spirit upon male and female slaves in those days. (Joel 3:1-2, NJPS)

It is plain that this prophecy has only been realised in the smallest part. We need to seek the L-rd and look for the fullness to be manifest within our people: that all flesh should prophesy and manifest the works of the Spirit.
