Significant Words in Zechariah 7:1 (16 December 2008):   Came to pass or exists in this manner, from hayah [H1961] is discussed in notes on Daniel 11:17 and Zechariah 1:1.
Fourth year is from sheneh [year, H8141], discussed in notes on Daniel 11:1 and Zechariah 1:1; and 'arba` [fourth, H0702], discussed in notes on Daniel 11:4 and Zechariah 1:7.
Darius [H1867], meaning returning to original purity, is discussed in notes on Daniel 11:1. Three times Zechariah [1:1, 7; 7:1]mentions Years of Returning (Darius), providing us specific dating on this book. This fourth Year of Returning (Darius) is “the acceptable year of Yehuveh” when Israel’s debt is paid in full and their captivity is turned, as described by Isaiah. It is in “the midst of the week” of Yehuveh confirming “the covenant with many,” as described by Daniel (9:24-27). It spans 7 April 2008 to 26 March 2009. Isaiah 61:1-2; Daniel 9:24-27.
King is from malak [H4428], applied to any high leader of a nation, as discussed in Daniel 11:2. Malak is used nine times in Zechariah [7:1; 9:5, 9; 11:6; 14:5, 9, 10, 16, 17]. 
Came, from hayah [H1961] is discussed in notes on Daniel 11:17 and Zechariah 1:1.
Word of Yehuveh is from debar [H1697], discussed in notes on Zechariah 1:1 and Daniel 12:4 and Yehuveh [H3068] as discussed in Do You Know His Name? and Zechariah 1:1.
Zechariah [H2148] meaning “Yah remembered,” represents either “those whom Yehuveh remembers” or “those who remember Yehuveh” or both, as discussed in notes on Zechariah 1:1. The message attached to 2 December 2008 will only have meaning and bring encouragement to those who continually remember Yehuveh in everything they think and do.
