Six Years of Returning (Darius)
10 April 2005 to 4 April 2011
|Radical Islamic Dominion
If we very carefully draw the various pieces of Scriptural Prophecy together, Yehuveh has given us tremendous insight into what is coming on the world in this Year of Deliverance.
Daniel 11:1-2 discusses a ruler who rises in Persia (Iran) from among the Medes (the people living in Iran, particularly the working classes) and, in the original Hebrew text, speaks of him as being “obstinant,” “defiant,” and “impudent.” These are qualities which Pharaoh demonstrated anciently just before Israel was delivered from his contol, so it is not surprising to see a similar leader raised up at this time! Study the story of Pharaoh and of Yehuveh hardening his heart in Exodus 4:21; 14:4, 17.
Revelation 13:1 speaks of a single “beast” dominion which rises on earth during the seven restoration years [10 April 2005 through 22 March 2012]. While this beast may represent a single nation, such as Iran, it could just as legitimately represent any group of people. Beast could therefore indicate the entire Islamic religious group, or even just Racidal Isalm.
Zechariah 5:11 houses this “beast” power “in the land of Shinar,” the valley in western Iran and eastern Iraq. Again, both the nation of Iran and active centers for the Islamic movements are located in this region.
Daniel 11:1 states that this Persian leader arises in the first Year of Returning (Darius) [9 April 2005 through 13 March 2006], identifying this leader as Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, who took office on 6 August 2005, the first day of the fifth month. He assumes/usurpts global leadership for only a very brief time.

Restoration of Israel to their Homeland
Once the land of Israel has been emptied in the midst of the seventh or Sabbatical Year, Yehuveh brings His scattered people home.
The firstfruit leaders and covenanted people of Israel return to the land originally promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: “Thus saith Yehuveh Elohim; When I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the people among whom they are scattered, and shall be sancitified in them in the sight of the heathen, then shall they dwell in their land that I have given to My servant Jacob.” Ezekiel 28:25. Study the extensive promises made to Israel in Genesis 12:7; 13:15; 28:4, 13; 35:12, 15, 17; Psalm 105:11; Ezekiel 37:24-25.
The whole restored nation returns in a very short time. Anciently, the return involved only a couple of months. Ezra arrived in Jerusalem “on the first day of the fifth month” bringing the people back from Babylon during the summer, and “when the seventh month came, the children of Israel were in their cities.” Should this pattern be repeated in our time, first day of the fifth month is 31 July 2011 and the seventh month begins on 28 September 2011. Ezra 7:9; Nehemiah 7:73 (also Ezra 2:70; 3:1).
Ezra 3 states that, having been able to settle in their homes by the beginning of the seventh month, every family participated in the festivities and instruction of the seventh month. These festivals included the Feast of Announcements (Trumpets) [this Year of Deliverance on 28 September 2011], the Day of Restarting (Atonement) [7 October 2011], and the week-long Feast of Harvest and Instruction (Tabernacles or Booths) [12-19 October 2011].
When Israel returns home, and most especially if they are in their homeland for these festivities, the return will be exceedingly rapid. But such a sudden return is exactly the picture presented by Isaiah: “Hear the word of Yehuveh, ye that tremble at His word; . . . He shall appear to your joy. . . . Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.” Isaiah 66:5-8.
