Out of the sixty-six books that comprise the accepted Evangelical scripture, one book of prophecy really stands out. This one book tells what has happened, is happening, and what will transpire at the end. Many people on seeing that statement will immediately think of the book of Revelation, as that book does go into some detail about the times of the end. Then they will usually also think that Revelation is a highly symbolic book that we should not take literally. That is a very big mistake concerning any book of scripture. Yes, there are many symbolic passages that should not be taken literally, but looking even at those recognized symbolic passages the underlying prophecy can be seen. Seldom is anything found in scripture restricted to a single meaning or a single time. Usually there are more than one events prophesied, even though the apparent intent of the passage is singular in nature. That is not the way Yahuwah works though.
So if you want to know about what is awaiting us, definitely read the book of Revelation and take it literally.
If you want to see a book that predates Revelation by about six centuries and told us many of the things that would later be confirmed in Revelation, look at the book of ZekarYahuw (Zechariah). This is an exciting book as a stand-alone, but when other and later prophecy is taken into account with it, it is a book that will literally shake the world.
Yahuwah revealed to the prophet ZekarYahuw (Zechariah), the son of BerekYahuw, the son of Iddow, future events and coming persons that most "bible scholars" have never recognized. For instance, the true name of our Savior was revealed, yet the greatest majority of people today have never heard the name. This name is identified in Acts 4:1-12 as the name we MUST know and call on for salvation.
- Acts 4:8-12 Then Keph, filled with the Sacred Spirit, said to them, "Rulers of the people and elders of Yisra'el, 9 if we this day are judged for a good deed done to a helpless man, by what means he has been made well, 10 let it be known to you all and to all the people of Yisra'el that by the name of Yahushua the Anointed of Nazareth, whom you impaled, whom Yahuwah raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole. 11 This is the 'stone that was rejected by you builders, that has become the chief cornerstone.' 12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under the sky given among men by which we must be saved."
Proof of this name and how it is properly derived from the Ibriy (Hebrew) text can be found in the article "Yahushua vs Joshua vs Jesus."

ZekarYahuw 1:1 In the eighth month of the second year of Dareyawesh, the word of Yahuwah came to ZekarYahuw, the son of BerekYahuw, the son of 'Iddow the prophet saying, 2 "Yahuwah has been very angry with your fathers. 3 Therefore say to them, 'Thus says Yahuwah of hosts, "Return to Me," says Yahuwah of hosts, "and I will return to you," says Yahuwah of hosts. 4 "Do not be like your fathers, to whom the former prophets preached saying, 'Thus says Yahuwah of hosts, "Turn now from your evil ways and your evil deeds."' But they did not hear nor heed Me," says Yahuwah. 5 "Your fathers, where are they? And the prophets, do they live forever? 6 Yet surely My words and My statutes which I commanded My servants the prophets, did they not overtake your fathers? So they returned and said, 'Just as Yahuwah of hosts determined to do to us, according to our ways and according to our deeds, so He has dealt with us.'" 7 On the twenty-fourth day of the eleventh month, which is the month Shebat, in the second year of Dareyawesh, the word of Yahuwah came to ZekarYahuw, the son of BerekYahuw, the son of 'Iddow the prophet. 8 I saw by night, and behold, a man riding on a red horse. And it stood among the myrtle trees in the hollow, and behind him horses, red, sorrel, and white. 9 Then I said, "My master, what are these?" So the messenger who talked with me said to me, "I will show you what they are." 10 And the man who stood among the myrtle trees answered and said, "These are those whom Yahuwah has sent to walk to and fro throughout the earth." 11 So they answered the messenger of Yahuwah who stood among the myrtle trees and said, "We have walked to and fro throughout the earth and behold, all the earth is resting quietly." 12 Then the messenger of Yahuwah answered and said, "O Yahuwah of hosts, how long will You not have mercy on Yeruwshalom and on the cities of Yahudah against which You were angry these seventy years?" 13 And Yahuwah answered the messenger who talked to me good comforting words. 14 So the messenger who spoke with me said to me, "Proclaim saying, 'Thus says Yahuwah of hosts. " I am zealous for Yeruwshalom and for Tsiyown with great zeal. 15 I am exceedingly angry with the nations at ease, for I was only a little angry and they made the evil worse." 16 Therefore thus says Yahuwah, "I am returning to Yeruwshalom in compassion. My house shall be built in it," says Yahuwah of hosts, "And a line shall be stretched out over Yeruwshalom."' 17 Again proclaim saying, 'Thus says Yahuwah of hosts, "My cities shall again spread out through prosperity. Yahuwah will again comfort Tsiyown and will again choose Yeruwshalom."' 18 Then I raised my eyes and looked and there four horns, 19 and I said to the messenger who talked with me, "What are these?" So he answered me, "These are the horns that have scattered Yahudah, Yisra'el, and Yeruwshalom." 20 Then Yahuwah showed me four craftsmen. 21 And I said, "What are these coming to do?" So he said, "These are the horns that scattered Yahudah so that no one could lift up his head. But the craftsmen are coming to terrify them, to cast out the horns of the nations that lifted up their horn against the land of Yahudah to scatter it."
As in many other passages of scripture, here Yahuwah has again offered Yisra'el and Yahudah comfort. He makes the statement that the nation WILL once again be established regardless of the seemingly overwhelming odds against it and He will provide for them. He also reminds them that He will provide the revenge on their enemies that they so desperately seek.
ZekarYahuw 2:1 Then I raised my eyes and looked, and behold, a man with a measuring line in his hand. 2 So I said, "Where are you going?" And he said to me, "To measure Yeruwshalom, to see its width and its length." 3 And there was the messenger who talked with me going out and another messenger was coming out to meet him 4 who said to him, "Run! Speak to this young man saying, 'Yeruwshalom shall be inhabited as towns without walls because of the multitude of men and livestock in it. 5 'For I,' says Yahuwah, 'will be a wall of fire all around her and I will be the splendor in her midst.'" 6 "Up! Up! Flee from the land of the north," says Yahuwah. "For I have spread you abroad like the four winds of the sky," says Yahuwah. 7 "Up, Tsiyown! Escape, you who dwell with the daughter of Babel." 8 For thus says Yahuwah of hosts, "He sent Me after splendor, to the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye. 9 For surely I will shake My hand against them and they shall become spoil for their servants. Then you will know that Yahuwah of hosts has sent Me. 10 Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Tsiyown! For behold, I am coming and I will dwell in your midst," says Yahuwah, 11 "Many nations shall be joined to Yahuwah in that day and they shall become My people and I will dwell in your midst. Then you will know that Yahuwah of hosts has sent Me to you. 12 And Yahuwah will take possession of Yahudah as His inheritance in the Sacred Land and will again choose Yeruwshalom. 13 Be silent, all flesh, before Yahuwah, for He is aroused from His sacred habitation!"
This is HOW He is going to rebuild and comfort His people.
ZekarYahuw 3:1 Then he showed me Yahushua, the high temple official, standing before the messenger of Yahuwah and Satan standing at his right hand to oppose him. 2 And Yahuwah said to Satan, "Yahuwah rebukes you, Satan! Yahuwah who has chosen Yeruwshalom rebukes you! Is this not a brand plucked from the fire?" 3 Now Yahushua was clothed with filthy garments and was standing before the messenger. 4 Then He answered and spoke to those who stood before Him saying, "Take away the filthy garments from him." And to him He said, "See? I have removed your iniquity from you and I will clothe you with rich robes." 5 And He said, "Let them put a clean turban on his head." So they put a clean turban on his head and they put the clothes on him and the messenger of Yahuwah stood by. 6 Then the messenger of Yahuwah admonished Yahushua saying, 7 "Thus says Yahuwah of hosts, 'If you will walk in My ways and if you will keep what I have put in your care, then you shall also judge My house and likewise have charge of My courts. I will give you places to walk among these that stand here. 8 Hear, O Yahushua, the high temple official, you and your companions who sit before you, for they are a wondrous sign. For behold, I will bring forth My Servant the BRANCH. 9 For behold, the stone that I have laid before Yahushua, upon the stone seven eyes. Behold! I will engrave its inscription,' says Yahuwah of hosts, 'and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day. 10 In that day,' says Yahuwah of hosts, 'you will call every man his neighbor under his vine and under his fig tree.'"
Here is the promise to Yahushua, the high temple official and the son of Yahuwtsadaq, that He will be the One in charge of the people of Yahuwah in the last days. Note that this is but ONE of the many times His name is used well before his incarnation as our Savior.
ZekarYahuw 4:1 Now the messenger who talked with me came back and wakened me as a man who is wakened out of his sleep. 2 And he said to me, "What do you see?" So I said, "I have looked and there is a lampstand of solid gold with a bowl on top of it and on the stand seven lamps with seven pipes to the seven lamps. 3 Two olive trees by it, one at the right of the bowl and the other at its left." 4 So I answered and spoke to the messenger who talked with me saying, "What are these, my master?" 5 Then the messenger who talked with me answered and said to me, "Do you not know what these are?" And I said, "No, my master." 6 So he answered and said to me, "This is the word of Yahuwah to Zerubbabel, 'Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,' says Yahuwah of hosts. 7 'Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of "Grace! Grace to it!"'" 8 Moreover the word of Yahuwah came to me saying, 9 "The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house. His hands shall also finish. Then you will know that Yahuwah of hosts has sent Me to you. 10 For who has despised the day of small things? For these seven rejoice to see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel. They are the eyes of Yahuwah which scan to and fro throughout the whole earth." 11 Then I answered and said to him, "What are these two olive trees at the right of the lampstand and at its left?" 12 And I further answered and said to him, "What are these two olive branches that drip into the receptacles of the two gold pipes from which the golden oil drains?" 13 Then he answered me and said, "Do you not know what these are?" And I said, "No, my master." 14 So he said, "These are the two anointed ones who stand beside the Sovereign of the whole earth."
This is the person by whom Yahuwah is going to accomplish all of the above. Take careful note that had personal names been properly rendered in the English versions of the Ibriy scripture, everywhere you now see the name "Joshua" you would instead see the correct name YAHUSHUA. That is also the name from which the false name JESUS is derived. As stated before, the details of this name and its derivation are in the article, "JESUS or YAHUSHUA."
If you have acquired the RNV and read from the book of MattithYahuw (Matthew) 1:21, then you will see that the name given by Gabriy'el for the son of Miryam (Mary) is in fact YAHUSHUA and it is given for the reason stated by Gabriy'el, namely that "He will save His people from their sins." That is exactly what the name YAHUSHUA means, "Salvation of Yahuwah." So here, six centuries before our Savior was born, we are told His name. Nobody believed it then and very few believe it today, instead relying on the English perversion "JESUS" (properly pronounced "hay-soos") of the Latin perversion "IESUS" of the Greek perversion "IESOUS."
Zerubbabel is also shown here to be one of the two witnesses who will be prophesying in the last days as stated in Revelation 11:3-11. (The other witness is Yahuchanan, the writer of Revelation, as seen in that book, chapter ten, verse eleven.)
ZekarYahuw 5:1 Then I turned and raised my eyes and saw there a flying scroll. 2 And he said to me, "What do you see?" So I answered, "I see a flying scroll. Its length twenty cubits and its width ten cubits." 3 Then he said to me, "This is the curse that goes out over the face of the whole earth. 'Every thief shall be expelled,' according to this side and, 'Every perjurer shall be expelled,' according to that side of it." 4 "I will send it out," says Yahuwah of hosts, "It shall enter the house of the thief and the house of the one who swears falsely by My name. It shall remain in the midst of his house and consume it with its timber and stones." 5 Then the messenger who talked with me came out and said to me, "Lift your eyes now and see what this is that goes forth." 6 So I asked, "What is it?" And he said, "It is a basket that is going forth." He also said, "This is their resemblance throughout the earth. 7 Here is a lead disc lifted up and a woman sits inside the basket." 8 Then he said, "This is Wickedness!" And he thrust her down into the basket and threw the lead cover over its mouth. 9 Then I raised my eyes and looked and there two women, coming with the wind in their wings (for they had wings like the wings of a stork) and they lifted up the basket between earth and sky. 10 So I said to the messenger who talked with me, "Where are they carrying the basket?" 11 And he said to me, "To build a house for it in the land of Shin'ar. When it is ready it will be set there on its base."
According to the word ZekarYahuw received from Yahuwah wickedness is to be based in the land of Shin'ar! Who would ever had thought that modern day Iraq would be such an evil place and even the center of wickedness? Well, I believe that we all know that now, even though it has taken millennia for it to become really evident.
ZekarYahuw 6:1 Then I turned and raised my eyes and looked, and behold, four chariots were coming from between two mountains, and the mountains were mountains of copper. 2 With the first chariot, red horses, with the second chariot black horses, 3 with the third chariot white horses, and with the fourth chariot spotted and strong horses. 4 Then I answered and said to the messenger who talked with me, "What are these, my master?" 5 And the messenger answered and said to me, "These are four spirits of the sky who go out from their station before the Sovereign of all the earth. 6 The one with the black horses is going to the north country, the white are going after them, and the spotted are going toward the south country." 7 Then the strong went out, eager to go that they might walk to and fro throughout the earth, and He said, "Go, walk to and fro throughout the earth." So they walked to and fro throughout the earth. 8 And He called to me and spoke to me saying, "See? Those who go toward the north country have given rest to My Spirit in the north country." 9 Then the word of Yahuwah came to me saying, 10 "Receive from the captives, from Chelday, TowbiYahuw, and Yeda'Yahuw, who have come from Babel, and go the same day and enter the house of Yo'shiYahuw the son of TsephanYahuw. 11 Take the silver and gold, make an elaborate crown, and set it on the head of Yahushua, the son of Yahuwtsadaq, the high temple official. 12 "Then speak to him saying, 'Thus says Yahuwah of hosts saying, "Behold the Man whose name is the BRANCH! From His place He shall branch out and He shall build the temple of Yahuwah. 13 Yes, He shall build the temple of Yahuwah. He shall bear the splendor and shall sit and rule on His throne. So He shall be a temple official on His throne and the counsel of peace shall be between them both."' 14 Now the elaborate crown shall be for a memorial in the temple of Yahuwah for Chelem, TowbiYahuw, Yeda'Yahuw, and Chen the son of TsephanYahuw. 15 Even those from afar shall come and build the temple of Yahuwah. Then you shall know that Yahuwah of hosts has sent Me to you. And this shall come to pass if you diligently obey the voice of Yahuwah your Eloah."
This is what Yahushua our Savior, once again described and defined, will do. He started the process during His earthly ministry and will soon complete it in person.
ZekarYahuw 7:1 Now in the fourth year of King Dareyawesh it came to pass that the word of Yahuwah came to ZekarYahuw, on the fourth day of the ninth month, Kislew, 2 when Shar'etser with Regem Melek and his men were sent to Bayith 'El to pray before Yahuwah 3 to ask the temple officials in the house of Yahuwah of hosts and the prophets saying, "Should I weep in the fifth month and fast as I have done for so many years?" 4 Then the word of Yahuwah of hosts came to me saying, 5 "Say to all the people of the land and to the temple officials, 'When you fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh during those seventy years, did you really fast for Me? For Me? 6 When you eat and when you drink do you not eat and drink for yourselves? 7 Should you not have obeyed the words which Yahuwah proclaimed through the former prophets when Yeruwshalom and the cities around it were inhabited and prosperous and the South and the Lowland were inhabited?'" 8 Then the word of Yahuwah came to ZekarYahuw saying, 9 "Thus says Yahuwah of hosts, 'Execute true justice. Show mercy and compassion everyone to his brother. 10 Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the foreigner or the poor. Let none of you plan evil in his heart against his brother.' 11 But they refused to heed, shrugged their shoulders, and stopped their ears so that they could not hear. 12 Yes, they made their hearts like flint, refusing to hear the law and the words that Yahuwah of hosts had sent by His Spirit through the former prophets. Thus great wrath came from Yahuwah of hosts. 13 Therefore it happened just as He proclaimed and they would not hear, so they called out and I would not listen," says Yahuwah of hosts, 14 "But I scattered them with a hurricane among all the nations which they had not known. Thus the land became desolate after them so that no one passed through or returned, for they made the pleasant land desolate."
Yahuwah reiterating why He has brought destruction to His people. They were warned time and time again and did not pay attention. Just like today. All of the wrath that Yahuwah has described for this evil and wicked world is on the way. Most people either don't believe it or they think they are safe without obedience. It is going to be a terrible awakening.
ZekarYahuw 8:1 Again the word of Yahuwah of hosts came saying, 2 "Thus says Yahuwah of hosts, 'I am zealous for Tsiyown with great zeal. With great fervor I am zealous for her.' 3 Thus says Yahuwah, 'I will return to Tsiyown and dwell in the midst of Yeruwshalom. Yeruwshalom shall be called the City of Truth, the Mountain of Yahuwah of hosts, the Sacred Mountain.' 4 Thus says Yahuwah of hosts, 'Old men and old women shall again sit in the streets of Yeruwshalom, each one with his staff in his hand because of great age. 5 The streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in its streets.' 6 Thus says Yahuwah of hosts, 'If it is marvelous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days, will it also be marvelous in My eyes?' says Yahuwah of hosts. 7 Thus says Yahuwah of hosts, 'Behold! I will save My people from the land of the east and from the land of the west. 8 I will bring them and they shall dwell in the midst of Yeruwshalom. They shall be My people and I will be their Elohiym in truth and righteousness.' 9 Thus says Yahuwah of hosts, 'Let your hands be strong, you who have been hearing in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets who spoke in the day the foundation was laid for the house of Yahuwah of hosts that the temple might be built. 10 For before these days, no wages for man nor any hire for beast, no peace from the enemy for whoever went out or came in, for I set all men, everyone, against his neighbor. 11 But now I will not treat the remnant of this people as in the former days,' says Yahuwah of hosts. 12 'For the seed shall be prosperous, the vine shall give its fruit, the ground shall give her increase, and the skies shall give their dew. I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these. 13 And it shall come to pass just as you were a curse among the nations, O house of Yahudah and house of Yisra'el, so I will save you and you shall be a blessing. Do not fear! Let your hands be strong!' 14 For thus says Yahuwah of hosts, 'Just as I determined to punish you when your fathers provoked Me to wrath,' says Yahuwah of hosts, 'and I would not relent, 15 so again in these days I am determined to do good to Yeruwshalom and to the house of Yahudah. Do not fear! 16 These are the things you shall do: Speak each man the truth to his neighbor. Give judgment in your gates for truth, justice, and peace. 17 Let none of you think evil in your heart against your neighbor and do not love a false oath for all these are things that I hate,' says Yahuwah." 18 Then the word of Yahuwah of hosts came to me saying, 19 "Thus says Yahuwah of hosts, 'The fast of the fourth, the fast of the fifth, the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be joy and gladness and cheerful appointed times for the house of Yahudah. Therefore love truth and peace.' 20 Thus says Yahuwah of hosts, 'People shall yet come, inhabitants of many cities. 21 The inhabitants of one shall go to another saying, "Let us continue to go and pray before Yahuwah and seek Yahuwah of hosts. I myself will go also." 22 Yes, many people and strong nations shall come to seek Yahuwah of hosts in Yeruwshalom and to pray before Yahuwah.' 23 "Thus says Yahuwah of hosts, 'In those days ten men from every language of the heathen shall grasp the sleeve of him that is Yahudiy saying, "Let us go with you for we have heard Elohiym is with you."' "
This is how the millennial reign of Yahushua is gong to be. It is going to be as wonderful as the coming wrath will be terrible. But only for those who are in the body of haMashiach.
ZekarYahuw 9:1 The burden of the word of Yahuwah against the land of Chadrak and Dammeseq its resting place (For the eyes of men and all the tribes of Yisra'el are on Yahuwah). 2 Also Chamath (which borders on it), Tsor, and Tsiydown, though they are very wise. 3 For Tsor built herself a tower, heaped up silver like the dust and gold like the mire of the streets. 4 Behold! The Sovereign will cast her out. He will destroy her power in the sea and she will be devoured by fire. 5 'Ashqelown shall see and fear. 'Azzah also shall be very sorrowful and 'Eqrown, for He dried up her expectation. The king shall perish from 'Azzah and 'Ashqelown shall not be inhabited. 6 A mixed race shall settle in 'Ashdowd and I will cut off the pride of the Pelishtiym. 7 I will take away the blood from his mouth and the abominations from between his teeth. But he who remains, even he shall be for our Eloah and shall be like a leader in Yahudah and 'Eqrown like a Yebuwsiy. 8 I will camp around My house because of the army, because of him who passes by and him who returns. No more shall an oppressor pass through them, for now I have seen with My eyes. 9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Tsiyown! Shout, O daughter of Yeruwshalom! Behold! Your King is coming to you. He is just and having salvation, lowly and riding on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey. 10 I will cut off the vehicle from 'Ephrayim and the horse from Yeruwshalom. The battle bow shall be cut off. He shall speak peace to the nations. His dominion shall be 'from sea to sea and from the river to the ends of the earth.' 11 As for you also, because of the blood of your covenant, I will set your prisoners free from the waterless pit. 12 Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope. Even today I declare I will restore double to you. 13 For I have bent Yahudah, My bow, fitted the bow with 'Ephrayim and raised up your sons, O Tsiyown, against your sons, O Yawan, and made you like the sword of a mighty man." 14 Then Yahuwah will be seen over them and His arrow will go forth like lightning. The Sovereign Yahuwah will blow the trumpet and go with hurricanes from the south. 15 Yahuwah of hosts will defend them. They shall devour and subdue with slingstones. They shall drink and roar as if with wine. They shall be filled like basins, like the corners of the altar. 16 Yahuwah their Eloah will save them in that day as the flock of His people, for they shall be like the jewels of a crown, lifted like a banner over His land. 17 For how great is its goodness and how great its beauty! Grain shall make the young men thrive and new wine the young women.
This tells a little of what will happen to the muslim countries in the end times. It also is the prophecy of Yahushua riding the colt into Yeruwshalom. The people of Yisra'el will conquer all the nations that surround them and there will finally be peace in the Middle East. That peace will begin AFTER the return of Yahushua to the Mount of Olives.
ZekarYahuw 10:1 Ask Yahuwah for rain in the time of the spring rain. Yahuwah will make flashing clouds. He will give them showers of rain, grass in the field for everyone. 2 For the idols speak delusion, the diviners envision lies and tell false dreams. They comfort in vain. Therefore the people wend their way like sheep. They are in trouble because there is no shepherd. 3 My anger is kindled against the shepherds and I will punish the goat-herders. For Yahuwah of hosts will visit His flock, the house of Yahudah, and will make them as His royal horse in the battle. 4 From him comes the cornerstone, from him the tent peg, from him the battle bow, from him every ruler together. 5 They shall be like mighty men who tread down in the mire of the streets in the battle. They shall fight because Yahuwah is with them and the riders on horses shall be put to shame. 6 I will strengthen the house of Yahudah and I will save the house of Yowseph. I will bring them back, because I have mercy on them. They shall be as though I had not cast them aside, for I am Yahuwah their Eloah and I will hear them. 7 'Ephrayim shall be like a mighty man and their heart shall rejoice as if with wine. Yes, their sons shall see and be glad. Their heart shall rejoice in Yahuwah. 8 I will whistle for them and gather them for I will redeem them and they shall increase as they once increased. 9 I will sow them among the peoples and they shall remember Me in far countries. They shall live, together with their sons, and they shall return. 10 I will also bring them back from the land of Mitsrayim and gather them from 'Ashshuwr. I will bring them into the land of Gil'ad and Lebanown until no more room is found for them. 11 He shall pass through the sea with affliction and strike the waves of the sea. All the depths of the river shall dry up. Then the pride of 'Ashshuwr shall be brought down and the scepter of Mitsrayim shall depart. 12 So I will strengthen them in Yahuwah and they shall walk up and down in His name," says Yahuwah.
More of the events that will occur leading up to and after the return of Yahushua.
ZekarYahuw 11:1 Open your doors, O Lebanown, that fire may devour your cedars. 2 Wail, O cypress, for the cedar has fallen because the mighty are ruined. Wail, O oaks of Bashan, for the thick forest has come down. 3 The sound of wailing from the shepherds for their splendor is ruined. The sound of roaring lions for the pride of the Yarden is ruined. 4 Thus says Yahuwah my Eloah, "Feed the flock for slaughter, 5 whose owners slaughter them and feel no guilt. Those who sell them say, 'Blessed is Yahuwah for I am rich' and their shepherds do not have compassion for them, 6 for I will no longer have compassion for the inhabitants of the land," says Yahuwah, "but indeed I will give everyone into his neighbor's hand and into the hand of his king. They shall attack the land and I will not deliver from their hand." 7 So I fed the flock for slaughter, in particular the poor of the flock. I took for myself two staffs. The one I called Beauty and the other I called Bonds and I fed the flock. 8 I dismissed the three shepherds in one month. My soul loathed them and their soul also abhorred me. 9 Then I said, "I will not feed you. Let what is dying die and what is perishing perish. Let those that are left eat each other's flesh. 10 And I took my staff, Beauty, and cut it in two that I might break the covenant that I had made with all the people. 11 So it was broken on that day. Thus the poor of the flock, who were watching me, knew that it was the word of Yahuwah. 12 Then I said to them, "If it is agreeable to you, give me my wages, and if not, refrain." So they weighed out for my wages thirty of silver. 13 And Yahuwah said to me, "Throw it to the potter," that princely price they set on me. So I took the thirty of silver and threw them into the house of Yahuwah for the potter. 14 Then I cut in two my other staff, Bonds, that I might break the brotherhood between Yahudah and Yisra'el. 15 And Yahuwah said to me, "Next, take for yourself the implements of a foolish shepherd. 16 For indeed I will raise up a shepherd in the land who will not care for those who are cut off, nor seek the young, nor heal those that are broken, nor feed those that still stand. But he will eat the flesh of the fat and tear their hooves in pieces. 17 Woe to the worthless shepherd who leaves the flock! A sword shall be against his arm and against his right eye. His arm shall completely wither and his right eye shall be totally blinded."
The muslim nations that surround Yisra'el will discover in that day just Who it is that they have been messing with. They will not like the results. Another prophecy is here that was fulfilled by Yahushua. There are also some more of the events that will occur leading up to and after the return of Yahushua.
ZekarYahuw 12:1 The burden of the word of Yahuwah against Yisra'el. Thus says Yahuwah, who stretches out the skies, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him, 2 "Behold! I will make Yeruwshalom a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding people when they lay siege against Yahudah and Yeruwshalom. 3 And it shall happen in that day that I will make Yeruwshalom a very heavy stone for all peoples, all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it. 4 In that day," says Yahuwah, "I will strike every horse with confusion and its rider with madness. I will open My eyes on the house of Yahudah and will strike every horse of the people with blindness. 5 And the governors of Yahudah shall say in their heart, 'The inhabitants of Yeruwshalom are my strength in Yahuwah of hosts, their Elohiym.' 6 In that day I will make the governors of Yahudah like a firepan in the woodpile and like a fiery torch in the sheaves. They shall devour all the surrounding people on the right hand and on the left, but Yeruwshalom shall be inhabited again in her own place, Yeruwshalom. 7 Yahuwah will save the tents of Yahudah first so that the splendor of the house of Dawiyd and the splendor of the inhabitants of Yeruwshalom shall not become greater than that of Yahudah. 8 In that day Yahuwah will defend the inhabitants of Yeruwshalom. The one who is feeble among them in that day shall be like Dawiyd and the house of Dawiyd like Elohiym, like the Messenger of Yahuwah before them. 9 It shall be in that day I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Yeruwshalom 10 and I will pour on the house of Dawiyd and on the inhabitants of Yeruwshalom the Spirit of grace and supplication. Then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for an only son and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn. 11 In that day there shall be a great mourning in Yeruwshalom, like the mourning at Hadad Rimmown in the plain of Megiddown. 12 And the land shall mourn, every family by itself. The family of the house of Dawiyd by itself and their wives by themselves. The family of the house of Nathan by itself and their wives by themselves. 13 The family of the house of Lewi by itself and their wives by themselves. The family of Shim'iy by itself and their wives by themselves. 14 All the families that remain, every family by itself, and their wives by themselves.
More of the coming events, plus, "They will look on ME whom they have pierced." Did you get that? This is the word of the Father being reported by ZekarYahuw, and He says HE is the One that they pierced! Does this give you an idea that the Father and the Son are One and the Same. There is much more evidence of that scattered throughout scripture. Believe it!
ZekarYahuw 13:1 In that day a fountain shall be opened for the house of Dawiyd and for the inhabitants of Yeruwshalom for sin and for uncleanness. 2 It shall be in that day," says Yahuwah of hosts, "I will cut off the names of the idols from the land, and they shall no longer be remembered. I will also cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to depart from the land. 3 It shall come to pass if anyone still prophesies, then his father and mother who bore him will say to him, 'You shall not live because you have spoken lies in the name of Yahuwah.' And his father and mother who bore him shall thrust him through when he prophesies. 4 And it shall be in that day every prophet will be ashamed of his vision when he prophesies. They will not wear a robe of coarse hair to deceive, 5 but he will say, 'I am no prophet. I am a farmer, for a man taught me to keep cattle from my youth.' 6 And one will say to him, 'What are these wounds in your wrists?' Then he will answer, 'That which I was wounded in the house of my friends.' 7 Awake, O sword, against My Shepherd, against the Man who is My companion," says Yahuwah of hosts. "Strike the Shepherd and the sheep will be scattered, then I will turn My hand against the little ones. 8 And it shall come to pass in all the land," says Yahuwah, "two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die, but a third shall be left in it. 9 I will bring the third through the fire, will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name and I will answer them. I will say, 'This is My people!' and each one will say, 'Yahuwah is my Eloah.'" >
Showers of blessing will be opened to all those in the Assembly of Yahuwah, His children by grace and obedience to His word. More prophecy of Yahushua being "pierced" and where the actual piercing took place.
ZekarYahuw 14:1 Behold, the day of Yahuwah is coming and your spoil will be divided in your midst, 2 for I will gather all the nations to battle against Yeruwshalom. The city shall be taken, the houses rifled, and the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity but the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 Then Yahuwah will go forth and fight against those nations as He fights in the day of battle. 4 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives that faces Yeruwshalom on the east and the Mount of Olives shall be split in two from east to west. A very large valley! Half of the mountain shall move toward the north and half of it toward the south. 5 Then you shall flee My mountain valley for the mountain valley shall reach to Atsel. Yes, you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of UzziYahuw, king of Yahudah. Thus Yahuwah my Eloah will come and all the saints with You. 6 It shall come to pass in that day there will be no light. The lights will diminish. 7 It shall be one day that is known to Yahuwah. Neither day nor night, but at evening time it shall happen it will be light. 8 And in that day living waters shall flow from Yeruwshalom, half of them toward the eastern sea and half of them toward the western sea. In both summer and winter it shall occur. 9 And Yahuwah shall be King over all the earth. In that day it shall be, "Yahuwah is One," and His name One. 10 All the land shall be turned into a plain from Geba' to Rimmown south of Yeruwshalom. Yeruwshalom shall be raised up and inhabited in her place from Binyamin's Gate to the place of the First Gate and the Corner Gate, and the Tower of Chanan'el to the king's winepresses. 11 The people shall dwell in it and no longer shall there be utter destruction, but Yeruwshalom shall be safely inhabited. 12 And this shall be the plague with which Yahuwah will strike all the people who fought against Yeruwshalom. Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet. Their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets and their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths. 13 It shall come to pass in that day a great panic from Yahuwah will be among them. Everyone will seize the hand of his neighbor and raise his hand against his neighbor's hand. 14 Yahudah also will fight at Yeruwshalom and the wealth of all the surrounding nations shall be gathered together: gold, silver, and apparel in great abundance. 15 Such also shall be the plague on the horse, the mule, on the camel and the donkey, and on all the cattle that will be in those camps. So shall this plague be. 16 And it shall come to pass everyone who is left of all the heathen that came against Yeruwshalom shall go up from year to year to worship the King, Yahuwah of hosts, and to keep the Festival of Booths. 17 And it shall be whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Yeruwshalom to worship the King, Yahuwah of hosts, on them there will be no rain. 18 If the family of Mitsrayim will not come up and enter in, they shall have no rain. They shall receive the plague with which Yahuwah strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Festival of Booths. 19 This shall be the punishment of Mitsrayim and the punishment of all the nations that do not come up to keep the Festival of Booths. 20 In that day "SACREDNESS TO Yahuwah" shall be on the bells of the horses. The pots in Yahuwah's house shall be like the bowls before the altar. 21 Yes, every pot in Yeruwshalom and Yahudah shall be sacredness to Yahuwah of hosts. Everyone who sacrifices shall come and take them and cook in them. In that day there shall no longer be a Kena'aniy in the house of Yahuwah of hosts.
This is the shaking of the world! He, Yahuwah/Yahushua, will stand on the Mount of Olives IN PERSON! What a day that will be! Take note of the condition of the people and animals during that battle at Yeruwshalom (not Armageddon). That sounds distinctly like a nuclear weapon has been detonated, does it not?
So there you have it. Believe it because it IS going to happen, and it is going to happen exactly like Yahuwah has told us it would. Remember that the surest sign that Yahuwah is THE Eloah is that He has told us the end from the beginning.
