5784 (2023/2024) - The Year of the DOOR
Shalom Partner and Friend of Israel,
The New Biblical Year 5784 (2023/24) began on “The Feast of Rosh HaShanah” (Trumpets) on the evening of 15th -16th September, 2023… The Hebrew letter for the number 4, is ‘Dalet’ …and tying into the 80 Decade (5780-5789) with 5784. Since this “decade of 80’s” represents the “PEY,” which is the “MOUTH” declaring the Word of God is paramount in this season! This NEW Hebrew Biblical Year 5784 is going to be a VERY Prophetic Year!
We are in a time of “re-aligning”… We have clearly understood that Israel becoming a Nation on the 14th May, 1948 was VERY significant! Israel is God’s Land and people and THEY are God’s End-times “time-clock!” BUT the clock didn’t just begin to tick in 1948! In fact, the clock began to tick 100 years ago, with the; “The League of Nations Mandate for Palestine” requiring Brittain “to put into effect”- “The Balfour Declaration” of 1917 for the establishment of a Homeland for the Jewish people. The “League of Nations Mandate” was written on the 24th July, 1922 …however, here’s where it gets VERY interesting!
On the 29th September, 1923 it officially came into effect and began the “Jubilee Year” count for the Nation of Israel even though not yet in the Land! That would mean that this year on the 29th September, 2023 therefore 100 years since the start of the formation of the Nation of Israel. From 29th September, 1923 plus 50 years = 1973 (a Jubilee Year) the Yom Kippur WAR and what does that make 2023? YES, 1973 plus 50 years makes 2023 a Jubilee Year! That will happen on the 29th September, 2023! Now look at what lies ahead for Israel and the Nations… this is the last JUBILEE before the Lord’s Millilumen Kingdom! Abraham was 100 years old when his son Isaac “the son of promise” was born just like Israel God’s - Promised Land (born in a day) …BUT is now 100 years old on the 29th September, 2023 and this just so happens to be at the beginning of “The Feast of Tabernacles!” Nothing is just coincidence!
Did you also know that when Israel became a Nation in 1948 the “The Law of Return” was passed on the 05th July, 1950 which granted Jews the right to “citizenship” in Israel… Between 1947-50 there was a lot of development in this area however 1950 was very specific when the “Law of RETURN” was made official. You see God uses people to accomplish His plans on earth. “And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, And shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, And gather together the dispersed of Judah From the four corners of the earth.” – Isaiah 11:11-12. Now look at this; 1950 + 80 = 2030 – 7 years = 2023 …that’s where we are NOW! Are we the privileged Generation leading up to the Rapture of the Church and then the 7 Year Tribulation?
Another interesting point is… the connection between King David and Yeshua (Jesus) as the genealogy is so significant pointing us towards the year 2030. Whilst King David died in the year 970/971 BC since that would be 3000 years ago in the year 2030. Yeshua died in 30AD 2,000 years before 2030. Is 2030 the potential year for our Lord’s Second Coming? It’s a potential year. Certainly, things that are taking place on the earth especially since 2020 are leading in that direction. BUT only time will tell.
Over and over in the Gospels, people cry out to Yeshua (Jesus)… “Have mercy on us, you son of David!” – Luke 18:35-43.Why is the Messiah’s title as David’s son the one that blind men and a Canaanite woman latched on to as they asked for healing? (Matthew 9:27, 15:22, 20:30-31; Mark 10:46-48; Luke 18:35-39). Why did the people shout, “Hosanna to the son of David!” when the Lord entered Jerusalem …and why did that make the chief priests and the scribes so indignant? (Matthew 21:9, 15; Mark 11:10). Why is there significance of this title? It would be easy to shrug off Yeshua’ (Jesus) TITLE as “David’s son,” simply by taking it as fulfilment of a few Prophecies that said “Messiah” (Hebrew meaning; “Christ,” as well as “anointed”) would come from King David’s descendants …BUT there is more meaning to this!
You see, the Lord God had made a Covenant with King David that He would establish his offspring’s kingdom FOREVER, and that connected with the promise of Messiah (2 Samuel 7:12-15)… Yahweh has sworn to David in truth. He will NOT turn from it (Psalm 132:11-12). David’s descendants eventually fell into disobedience …and lost the “physical kingdoms” …of Israel and Judah. But Yeshua (Jesus) a SINLESS, obedient “son of David” inherited the Covenant promise. According to the Apostle Peter, David actually knew that would be the end result of God’s promises to him about his descendants (Acts 2:29-31). The fact that Messiah would come from David’s lineage (Micah 5:2) and inherit this Covenant is important enough that the glorified Yeshua – Jesus Christ, when sharing His Revelation with John, chose “offspring of David” as one of the titles by which to identify Himself (Revelation 22:16).
Covenants are a big deal “Spiritually” and people recognized this in the time of our Lord! They knew that Yeshua (Jesus) being “a son of David,” and more specifically the Prophesied Messianic Son, meant a great deal. If He was this “son of David,” then it meant he would inherit the Covenant …and Rule forever! David’s Covenant involves Authority and Ruling the kingdom of Israel (2 Chronicles 7:17-18, 13:5, 21:7). This is an “EVERLASTING Covenant” though the primary fulfilment of it and now involves Christ ruling over Spiritual Israel. That Yeshua (Jesus) would inherit this Covenant was one of the things the Angel also specifically told His mother Mary (Luke 1:32-33).
There are MANY Prophecies connecting our Messiah to King David’s throne (Isaiah 9:7, 16:5; Jeremiah 23:5). The New Testament writers were careful to point out exactly how fully Yeshua (Jesus) fits His title of “son of David” because that carries with it a great deal of Authority, Responsibility …and proof of Him being the true Messiah. The Lord Yeshua (Jesus) even described Himself as; “He who is holy, He who is true, He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one can shut, and who shuts and NO one opens.” - Revelation 3:7. This echoes a promise to a man named Eliakim, where God used “the KEY of David” as a symbol of Power and Authority (Isaiah 22:20-22). Acknowledging or Lord Yeshua - Jesus Christ as David’s son involves acknowledging His right to Rulership and Authority as King of kings and Lord of lords.
Matthew, Mark, and Luke ALL record Yeshua (Jesus) getting the Scribes and Pharisees into a discussion about the Christ being David’s son… You see, this wasn’t in response to the questions they asked Him; the Lord brought it up Himself …presumably to make sure they talked about it? This was important. Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Yeshua (Jesus) asked them a question, saying… “What do you think of the Christ? Whose son, is he?” They said to him, “Of David.” The Lord replied; “How then does David in the Spirit call him Lord, saying, ‘The Lord said to my Lord, sit on my right hand, until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet’? If then David calls him Lord, how is he, his son?”- Matthew 22:35-37. No one was able to answer him a word, neither did any man dare ask him any more questions from that day forward (see also; Mark 12:35-37; Luke 20:39-44). This passage might seem a bit confusing at first …BUT Yeshua (Jesus) is NOT contradicting the idea that - “the Messiah is David’s son!”
In Matthew 22:35-37 the Lord was pointing out that “the Messiah” is both David’s son and David’s lord and that He is both man and God. The truth that Yeshua - Jesus Christ is God’s Son and therefore also God …and this was the very purpose that already had people wanting to kill him (John 5:17-18) …BUT it was one He could PROVE from Scripture - that He was both fully God and fully man! This is a foundational truth of Christianity, and it’s one that Paul preached by talking about the Lord as “son of David and son of God; “Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, set apart for the Good News of God, which he promised before through his prophets in the holy Scriptures, concerning his Son, who was born of the offspring of David according to the flesh, who was declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord.” - Romans 1:1-4.
YESHUA (Jesus) title “son of David” is about so MUCH more than the simple fact that He could claim descent from Israel’s greatest King… It’s about God keeping His Covenant Promises and Christ as inheritor of the Covenants! And, it’s about Yeshua’ having ALL Authority as the rightful King of God’s eternal people Israel and eventually the whole world …and it powerfully affirms that Yeshua – Jesus Christ is both man and God, as David’s son and his Lord …and is very SOON returning!
Now let’s look again at the New Biblical Year 5784 (2023/24) and understand the meaning of 4 – “The Year of the Door!” The Hebrew Alphabet is an alpha-numerical language and each letter corresponds to a NUMBER. The significance of the Number 4; is also seen in the 4-Elements: Water, Fire, Earth, and Wind. There are 4-Direction: North, South, East, and West. And even though we now have 4-Seasons, on the 4th day of Creation, God created lights that divide day from night and He created the sun and the moon and the stars which He placed in the firmament. These were to be for signs and for His seasons, seasons that deal more with the planting seasons. All these are connected to Dalet! Just another very interesting thing; What do we get when we add a DALET to YHVH? We get YHVDH or Yehuda (Judah), the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, “…the tribe by whom Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) was born and why we call Him “the son of David.” That is His lineage.
Today God is separating the WORLD “Wheat from the Chaff” and there is NO longer a middle ground…
What is “CHAFF?” It is the outer husk of the grain, the beard and stalk of Wheat. The grains are inside each husk! In the Strongs Concordance 5784 has meaning; “like the CHAFF”(as the naked husk) Hebrew “uwr” and they connected it to; “Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.” - Daniel 2:35. The Hebrew Lexicon explains “CHAFF” like this; “Chaff” like in Daniel 2:35; meaning; “A bit of “chaff” or “like which hurts the eye” as in the root word - “uwr” - in the eye, tending to cause; “blindness” …but may NOT rather be the same as “dust” or “a particle from the dust” or “to throw dust into the eye” - this is rejected …as it is a different “blinding” – NOT natural but spiritual!
5783 (2022/23) is related to 5784 (2023/24) and is a continuation…. Last Year the Biblical Year 5783 was the Hebrew letter; “Gimmel” and represented a camel; “gematria” number 3 which is a connecting letter and a picture of a man that is walking towards the next letter – 5784 the number 3 is walking towards 4 which is the “Dalet” meaning; “door” …as well as “impoverished!” The “Dalet” is a picture of someone poor and bent over humbly!
In the previous Biblical Year 5783 the letter was GIMEL, "one who gives generously," …and it spoke of the Israelites who were brought out of Egypt with many riches, gold, and silver. If they did NOT give back and they hardened their hearts with "greed and pride" these turned wicked …and the enemy tripped them up on the way to "the Promised land" and ONLY a few reached it.! The letters have an established order, and by their meanings "a path" is made. Sins and mistakes throw one off this path and the letters get scrambled and so does the walk with our Creator. It took them 40 years for a destination that could have been reached in a few weeks if they had submitted fully to Yahweh and His ways. This path required a humbling and offerings to prepare them for the prize. So, it is today, we living in the End-time where SATAN "the great deceiver" - NO longer hides BUT is openly deceiving the Nations …and is using wicked prideful greedy so-called Elites and their cabal of Globalists Leaders, the Media, W.H.O., U.N. etc., to fulfil his deceptive plans against the Creator – God!
The DALET is the 4th letter of the Hebrew Alphabet, or the Aleph-bet made up of 22 numbers and each number has a letter/picture. The Dalet represents "the open door, the gateway." Yeshua (Jesus) says, "I am the door; by me if any man enters in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture." - John 10:9.
Yeshua reveals that He is “the door” in many passages of the Bible …or “the way, the truth, and the life” and that NO one comes to the Father, except through Him. For this reason, it is so important to come to this place or this position where the human heart sees the need for dependence on his/her Creator. YHVH - Yahweh God, made us special, like Him, created in His image …so He can dwell among us and have that constant connection which our soul needs! The more we seek intimacy with Yeshua, the more revelation we get. The “mystery” is hidden and we must seek it. The nuggets are just waiting to be found. Yeshua said in John 7:37; “…if any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.”
Since the fall, we have been separated from the Garden of Eden and from ABBA FATHER... To restore us back to the Father, Yeshua came and lived the SINLESS life so He could be the ultimate Sacrifice necessary to Redeem us. He gave Himself -He was the Sacrifice, He paid the price, so we could be blessed and redeemed back to God. We merely exchange this body of flesh for something far better. Death has lost it’s sting of sin if we are truly saved; it’s just a simple transition through a portal in time. And Jesus/Yeshua Messiah is that, Dalet – the DOOR!
Almighty God has given us all a free will to choose that does have consequences and pitfalls, which can put us in wilderness areas throughout our lives. The DALET is also referred to as “the poor man” (poor in spirit) who is ready to receive. The “DOOR” is always open and Yeshua (Jesus) leaves the light on …and we must also keep the flame inside us burning brightly. It is through our hearts of gratitude that we connect with Him in the Spirit. Just as “praise and worship” are amazing avenues that lead us into greater intimacy with Yeshua. We read in Revelation 3:20 that our Lord “…stands at the door and knocks.” If our hearts are open, we WILL hear His voice and open “the door” within. He will come in to us and feast with us, and we will feast with Him.
Essential points on DOORS for the year ahead are all God’s Feasts of the Lord are His “Mo’edim” and “Divine Appointments. 5784 (2024) WILL be “a Year of abnormalities” of shock and astonishment! Did you know that the number 24 in Hebrew means JUDGEMENT? It’s going to be a year unlike the years before and we need to prepare emotionally and physically for “the NEW order” and “it’s a whole NEW order” and believers in Yeshua (Jesus) can NO longer be “lukewarm” Church! This Hebrew calendar year, 5784 (2023/24), God is calling His people to RETURN to their First Love and their First Love being Christ and Him alone! The doors are closing! If we were NOT shocked by the past 3 years this to be minor in comparison to what is coming! God allowing everything to happen so that people’s eyes will open and will be a year of hearing! 5784 (2023/24) will be a year of sorting the “wheat from the chaff!” It is the FIRST of the 7-Year period and will also be a year of God’s Glory and God’s blessing for those who want to hear and see! A Year of decision lies ahead for all of us! A powerful storm is coming, with wind that will remove the chaff! We will need to stay focused on God! We entering a time of 7-Years of shaking and will end in 2030. It will however be a 7-Year period of “Divine” provision for God’s people! True believers will feel like we do NOT belong upon this earth, it’s NOT our home BUT Heaven is and will feel like “Pilgrims” just passing through!
There are some DOORS that we need to understand: Not all doors are God-appointed doors and can be a distraction to God’s purpose and plan for us and so we must be vigilant. God has the FINAL say when it comes to doors; As stated in; Revelation 3:8: “…He opens, and no one can shut.” He is the ultimate giver of access to all good things, including peace, joy, and fruitfulness. God desires His people to have a life full of abundance and purpose (John 10:10). Open doors: can seem obscure and meaningless and can be overlooked. Some open doors are unseen (hidden). They can only be perceived by those who have discernment and are in the Spirit. Some closed doors can appear like the end …but it’s just the beginning! We need to understand all this in preparation for the New Year of the DOOR!
(1) The Ark Door is a “Symbol of Safety” (Genesis 6:16-17) speaks of entering into safety during a time when God’s judgment was being poured out on the earth and. Noah and his family were safe inside the Ark …protected from the impending destruction. This door illustrates, God as our refuge and protector, “in times of trouble and chaos.”
(2) The Temple Door is a “Symbol of separation and access to God.” In 1 Kings 6:31-35, it says that the “Temple DOOR” was made of olive wood and carved with many designs. These included cherubim, palm trees, and open flowers. This was done to represent God’s presence in His Temple among His people. It also signified our separation from God, only authorized priests could enter this sacred place. The New Testament changed this separation from God through Yeshua (Jesus.). In John 10:9, Yeshua says He is the door, and whoever comes to Him will be saved by His grace. This means anyone can now access God’s presence without any limitations with true repentance through Christ.
(3) The Passover Door is a “Symbol of redemption!” In Exodus 12:7, God instructed His people to paint their doorposts with blood so that death would pass over them as they were spared from its consequences. The Passover fore-shadows Christ’s ultimate sacrifice (Ephesians 1:7).
(4) The Shepherd Door is a "Symbol of Eternal Life! John 10:7-9 outlines the "security and safety" we have when we are connected to Christ our Lord. He is the good shepherd who will protect us and lead us into a life of eternal peace and joy. The enemy, Satan, creates counterfeit doors and can often look similar to a God door. We must be WISE!
(5) The Tomb Door is a "Symbol of victory over death!"
This serves as a powerful reminder of Yeshua’ (Jesus) victory over death. The "tomb door" was sealed shut after His body was placed inside, and the stone rolled in front of it. Christ rose from the dead 3-days later and opened the door for ALL who believe, demonstrating His power over death.
(6) The Wide and Narrow Gates/ Doors are Symbol of our Eternal destination) In Matthew 7:13-14 it speaks of two different paths that believers can choose to take …the broad path that leads to destruction …and the narrow path that leads to life. This door speaks of how our choices can determine our Eternal destination …we need to choose and make wise decisions.
(7) Opening doors require right timing; Matthew 25:10; "But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut." The five wise and five foolish virgins were waiting for their bridegroom. The wise ones had filled their lamps with oil beforehand and were ready when he came at midnight. On the other hand, the foolish virgins did not prepare properly and were therefore unable to go into the wedding feast with the bridegroom. From this Parable we learn that it is essential to be prepared and watchful, so that when opportunities come our way, we will not miss our chance. It also warns us to be prepared for the soon coming of the Lord – the Bridegroom for His true Church and Bride! Maranatha Yeshua!
God’s Word is true! He IS watching to see how the nations are treating His people – Israel. God will have mercy on Israel through Gentile believers acting as mediators towards them! This is one of the most amazing revelations ever given to the Church – an opportunity to do something that carries the highest priority in the heart of God. Yet, sadly, so few have seen the potential and the rewards of serving God in this manner - as agents of mercy to Israel and the Jewish people! Israel was and still is despised today and a despised nation continually turning away from God BUT nothing ever altered the purpose of God for that nation. The despised element is always a noticeable element in the purpose of God. When the Saviour of the world came, He came of that despised nation; like Israel… He Himself was; "despised and rejected by men," And there is that despised element; "…things that are despised God has chosen," 1 Corinthians 1:28. Now, more than at any time is the time to support Israel and the Jewish people - the Lord’s Brethren! We are witnessing the nations and people turning their backs on Israel. Thank you for your prayers and generous financial support especially during these very difficult times. With "lockdown" and difficult "recovery" still lying ahead we ARE reminded that the Wuhan Corona Virus has caused many dire needs and continue to increase here in Israel upon the already most vulnerable! Once again – Thank you!
We hope that you enjoy and become more informed by our work. We serve an awesome God and we are humbled by this opportunity to bring you this information. With Shalom to you and your family always,
