Explanation of the Six Years of Returning (Darius)
Yehuveh has given us very much information in Scriptures to guide us through critical times in our experiences. Prophecies, like all other Scriptural stories, are given to help us understand events which otherwise might make no sense at all. Indeed, every part of Scripture is given us by Yehuveh  “that He might instruct” us. Yet, it goes without saying, that most of us don’t know what we are reading. Deuteronomy 4:36.
        There are in Scriptures more than a dozen references to
six years of Darius—originally to a historical king, yet also encoding information applying to events taking place in our time. These prophecies have specific dates and some also identify Astronomical-Astrological events (specific positioning of planets in constellations with attached Scriptural meaning).
        This is awesomely helpful:
When we can associate an unvarying event in the heavens with a specific date, and then understand what the prophecy is saying, we will know what to anticipate on earth. With such links and insight into the prophecies, we can accurately apply Yehuveh’s warnings when these dates arrive.
These things are written “that He might instruct” us, that we might know how to make appropriate decisions in the context of what is coming.

Significance of Darius: Regarding the name Darius [Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary entry H1867],
        James Strong simply states: “
Darejavesh, of foreign origin, a title (rather than name) of several Persian
        kings.” Assuming this to be a non-Hebrew word, he pursues its Hebrew language roots no further.
        However, Mr. Strong’s approach to the source(s) of this word may not provide the most accurate
        “final answer.”
                As written in Hebrew,
Darius is a compound word with several possible meanings, which James
        Strong failed to investigate.
Dare is potentially from a Hebrew root otherwise not used in Scripture
to move rapidly, which gives rise to entries H1865 (liberty, freedom, purity) and H1858
white). Javesh, or more correctly Yavesh, is potentially from Strong’s entry H7725, a primary root
to turn back (or away, possibly to the starting point) [translated again, retreat, repeat,
recall, recover, refresh, relieve, repent, restore, return, withdraw]. Thus, the significance of Darius,
        when viewed as a compound Hebrew word rather than as a name or title, is
to return to freedom,
to restore the original purity, to turn back to the starting point.
                Interestingly yet another potential Hebrew root for
Darius is entry H1875: Darash: meaning
        “properly, to tread or
frequent; usually to follow (for pursuit or search); by implication, to seek
ask; specifically to worship; translated “to ask, seek diligently, inquire, to research, to question.”
        Thus considering this as a possible root for
Darius yields a potential significance very similar to that
        noted above. These six years are indeed years of
diligent research and questioning as we seek to
        return to the starting point
. Simply translated, the Years of Darius represent six years set aside
        for Yehuveh’s people to
earnestly question their errors and return to their original purity.”
        These six years are
years of returning to Yehuveh’s wisdom, instruction, and ways.

Daniel 9:27, Yehuveh clearly tells us that He will “confirm the covenant with many for one week,” a period of seven years, of which the final year is a Sabbatical year.
        If Yehuveh is confirming
“the covenant” with His people during these seven years, He is indeed restoring them to their original purity and bringing them back to the starting point that they may have true and awesome freedom. Are not these first six years of this week truly Years of Returning to Yehuveh (Darius), years of restoring purity and freedom?
        For the time placement of this week, study
“Seventy Weeks” or Ten Jubilees and Confirming the Covenant with Many for Seven Years.
