What lies behind the DOOR?

20 /24 

Shalom Partner and Friend of Israel,

5784 (2024) the YEAR of the DOOR. There is a timeline of 7-Years (2024-2030) that lies ahead. We entered the Year of the DOOR - Hebrew Biblical Year 5784 on the Feast of Trumpets (16th September, 2023) and while we are in the DECADE of 80 which is PEH (mouth) …we are also in the Hebrew Biblical YEAR of the “DOOR” for Number 4! God’s Biblical Hebraic Calendar is based on Israel’s Spring and Fall Feasts (festivals) and other holy days that take place each year, “These are MY (God) appointed feasts, the appointed feasts of the LORD...” – Leviticus 23:2.

It was God who sent the angel Gabriel to tell Daniel about the 70 weeks of years, pertaining to Israel and Jerusalem (Daniel 9:24). As such, it is God who has determined when the FINAL (70th) weeks of years of that time period would begin. Indeed, a great many events in Israel’s history were connected to God’s Hebraic Calendar, so it would make sense that the same would apply to the Daniel  70th Week of years. Therefore, to get a better idea of the actual timing of the FINAL 7 years of this Age, it would be appropriate to look at the beginning. Ever since the beginning, God has used lights in the expanse of the sky, the sun, the moon, and the stars as “signs to mark seasons and days and years (Genesis 1:14)

God does NOT adhere to the human-made Gregorian Calendar which runs annually from the 01st January – 31st December. However, we will try to look at 2024 from a Biblical point of view and try to compare the NUMBERS from the Hebrew language and trust it will be a blessing to you as it was to us writing it.

Acts 20:24 is an encouraging Scripture for believers to stand upon during 2024 as we wait for our Messiah Yeshua’ Return for His Church. Let our aim be to finish “the Race” set before us!

Did you know that in Hebrew the Number 4 (Dalet) is connected to Creation… In Biblical numerology, 4 is the number of the Earth, or the material Creation of God. On the 4th Day of Creation, the material world was finished (Genesis 1:14-19), thereby allowing God to furnish it with living creatures. The gematria of the Hebrew phrase, “ha’ Eretz,” meaning “the earth,” is 296, which is; 4 x 74. There were also 4 great divisions of mankind represented by the “cherubim” (Ezekiel 1:5), or the 4 “beasts” around the Throne (Revelation 4:6). These represent all Creation. Likewise, there are 4 Gospels, each corresponding to a different “beast” around the Throne of God. Matthew presents the Lion, saying; “Behold the King.” Mark presents; the Ox, saying, “Behold the Servant.” Luke presents the Man, saying, “Behold the Son of Man.” John presents the Eagle, saying, “Behold the Son of God.”

In accordance with there were also 4 colours in the curtains of the Tabernacle of Moses... The purple proclaimed, “Behold your King.” The scarlet proclaimed, “Behold the Servant.The white proclaimed, “Behold the Son of Man.” The blue proclaimed, “Behold the Son of God.” In geometry, a 4-sided square represents the earth …while a circle represents Heaven - Eternity, and the realm of Spirit. The 4th Book of the Bible is the Book of Numbers, whose Hebrew title is “B’ Midbar”; “The Wilderness symbolically represents the earth. On the Day of Atonement, the second goat (Christ) was led into the wilderness by a “fit man” to remove sin from all the people (Leviticus 16:10, 21). Thus, after His Baptism on the Day of Atonement, Yeshua (Jesus) was led by the Spirit into “the wilderness” to be tested by the devil. This was to fulfil the law of the second goat.

At the end of Psalm 4, we find that it is “to the chief Musician upon Nehiloth,” which means “inheritances.” It has to do with inheriting the earth (Matthew 5:5), beginning with our own “Promised Land,” the glorified body. Yet before the righteous can inherit the earth, they must be trained and disciplined in the earth, often suffering to test their faith. Thus, Israel had to be tested in the wilderness (Psalm 95:8; Hebrews 3:8) before they could inherit the land! As believers we are called to be “meek” NOT “weak!” Meek as in humble, gentle and to trust God at all cost!

“Open up, ancient gates! Open up, ancient doors and let the King of Glory enter!” - Psalm 24:7.

We encourage you to re-read our teaching written before the 01st October, 2023 called; "5784 (2023/204) – "The Year of The DOOR!" https://57842023224TheYearoftheDOOR.html

On the last day (8th Day) of The Feast of Tabernacles in the early morning of the 07th October,2023 a gruesome attack happened in Southern Israel just like it did on the Yom Kippur War of 1973 Israel was caught by surprise on the most joyful celebration day – the 8th Day. It was a well-planned terrorist attack by Hamas and Islamic cohorts and was originally planned for 06th October to coincide on the actual anniversary and 50th (Jubilee) Year of the Yom Kippur War. It was the most VIOLENT (in Hebrew "Hamas" means "violence") atrocious, brutal, savage, unthinkable and a demonic attack since the re-birth of Israel in 1948. Hamas terrorists used Palestinian Civilians living in Gaza to help murder Jews "for payment" and slaughtered 1,400 Israelis living in Southern Israel taking 240 hostages. And, this was only the beginning of 5784! So, what lies ahead?

Let’s first look again at what 5784 (2024) represents… We are currently in the DECADE of "80’s" (which began with the Biblical Year 5779/5780 - 2019/2020) and will continue for the next 7 years until 5789 (2029/2030) The Hebrew letter for "80" is "PEH" which  is the Hebrew word for MOUTH! And so, for this decade of 10-Years (2020-2030) it can be said to be a time of; "awakening an awareness" of the "mouth/ breath/ voice" …and a decade of "declaration" over ourselves, over our families, our churches, our nations, our neighbours etc. What we "declare" or "decree" with our mouths, what we speak, what we say, will be KEY for VICTORY and for advancing the Kingdom! We are NOT called to be SILENT! "You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So, light will shine on your ways" - Job 22:28.

Here’s something we found VERY interesting… If we take the numbers of the current Biblical Year; 5784 and add them as follows; 5+7+8+4 = 24 it gives us the current Gregorian Calendar i.e., the first 3 numbers give us 20 and the 4 added gives us 2024. In this 5780 decade we are able to do that with each of the years past and those yet to follow! BUT we were NOT able do that with the past decades or even the one ahead. For example, the last year of this current decade (5780) is; 5789 (5+7+8+9 = 2029) then we get the correct year …BUT the coming next decade which is; 5790 if we add the numbers: 5+7+9+0 = 21 it does NOT give us 2040! We believe that in this current PEH (mouth) decade we are about to see God’s amazing Prophetic fulfilment! Could it just be that this is also the FINAL 7-Years leading to the Rapture and Tribulation? Time will tell!

We all experienced the huge world-wide attack on our "mouth" / "breath" that the COVID-19 plan-demic brought with it when the entire world almost came to a standstill in March 2020; Masks became compulsory, lock-downs (prison term) implemented, people silenced and distanced …and people were mostly affected in their lungs! The DECADE of 5780 (2020) of PEH represents the MOUTH and will continue until 5789/5790 - 2029/2030!

A small "glimpse" into the next DECADE 90’s (30’s) should our Lord tarry for His Church… very interestingly, the Hebrew Number 90 is the 18th letter; "Tsade" meaning; "Bondage" or "Prison!" In Hebrew the character "Tsade" is used to represent the spiritual number 90 means ‘Saints Sifted’. The meaning is; ‘Testimony’ (10) of ‘Judgment’ (9). 90 (10x9). The future DECADE of the 2030’s (in Gregorian Calendar) and Hebrew "gematria" Number 30 "LAMED." (corresponding to 5790’s). "Lamed," means; teach(er). yoke, authority, bind and looks like a shepherd’s staff. The verb "Lamad" means "to learn or teach" - scholar and also means OX GOAD.

The letter "lamed" is said to look like such a device and like a staff! Provoking to learning, and like an arrow perhaps, piercing the heart with the Word of God and bringing understanding! A picture paints a thousand words; Aleph : Equal to 1 and is the pictographs is of an OX head, with meaning of; strong, power, leader that generally related to God (before all things), ABBA Father God.

With the Holy Spirit’s guidance, in the Name of Yeshua (Jesus), we can have this glimpse of what God may be revealing will come in the future decade of "Lamed" - 2030’s or Hebrew Year "Tsade" 5790’s …should our Lord tarry! In addition, the Lord provides Prophetic "insights" as we watch with Him with a blessed HOPE of His soon coming for His Bride – the true Church! God already knows what lies ahead and what is coming upon the earth, and desires to reveal those things so that we can be prepared for its arrival by His Prophetic Grace. So, we see that the number 30, in Hebrew equates to the character ‘Lamed’, and paints an image and meaning of the teacher, and being "goaded" or provoked in to learning and guidance. We may say teaching with authority that provides guidance and leading! The ‘30s will be said to be the age of the preacher/teacher, expounding from heaven to earth the truths that bring Salvation and a harvest of souls …perhaps to those "left behind?"

Satan’s war is always against the Church on the earth… and he is NOT very much concerned about others who are NOT in Christ and have NO authority over him. The true Church of Yeshua threatens the devil so badly and he has no problem shutting down the whole earth if he can ….just to try to annihilate the Church in every season of power and glory and Satan WILL use godless people and the wicked leaders of the Nations to accomplish his evil plans. Yes, so much changes and it all began in 2020 that continued throughout 2021 …then came 2022 with the war in Ukraine. AND, then the following year came the most gruesome unprovoked "sudden" attack by Hamas terrorists upon God’s Land and people Israel from Gaza by on the 07th November, 2023 leading to WAR and Antisemitism across the Nations of the world. Truly EVIL is the only word describing this!

We believe that in 2024 the Lord is beginning to move us from the Church Age to the Kingdom AgeSomething shifted in 2023/5783 after a 3 years cycle of heavy "spiritual warfare" on the earth which hasn’t been seen before …and, on a scale, that we believe from now on will lead to Daniel 7:21-22 coming to pass more and more as Satan tries to make WAR on God’s elect. We know that in the End-times these things will happen: Matthew 24Book of DanielBook of Revelation.

"Lift up your heads, O you GATES! And be lifted up, you everlasting DOORS! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, The Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you GATES! Lift up, you everlasting DOORS! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory." - Psalm 24.

The word gate/door mentioned many times in Psalm 24. How did the gate lift up and open for the King of Glory to come in? Through the VOICE command the PEY, the mouth, and voice declarations, the decade of 80. Many believe that these symbolic meanings of the Number 4 to be relevant to the Messianic Age …and will play a role in the events leading up to the Rapture (Harpazo) and then the Second Coming of Messiah Yeshua and the establishment of His 1,000-Year Kingdom." Also, the "Dalet" (number 4) is linked to a meaningful Name of God which is; "The True Judge!" If this is not an exciting day for the Church (Body of Christ) to be alive …then we don’t know what else is exciting!

Now let’s look again at the number 24 in the year 2024 The number 24 is related to; 24 hours in a day; 24 is the atomic number of chromium; 24 of  is the number of carats in pure gold; 24 letters in the Greek Alphabet. In the Old Testament  (Torah or Tanakh - Instruction, or Law, also called the Pentateuch and the Neviim - Prophets) there are 24 books. In the Old Testament there are 39 books in the but, despite being shorter, the Hebrew Bible manages to encompass the same material. In the Bible, the number 24 takes its meaning from the number 12. As we know, the number 12 is a "perfect number" representing God’s power and authority. The number 24, therefore, is an even stronger demonstration of God’s strength!

The number 12 is also associated with the "priesthood," who oversee God’s work on Earth… This is due to the divisions of Priests recorded in; 1 Chronicles 24:1-19, also known as the descendants of Aaron; "With the help of Zadok a descendant of Eleazar and Ahimelech a descendant of Ithamar, David separated them into divisions for their appointed order of ministering." - 1 Chronicles 24:3, The first person named in the Bible as a "priest" is Melchizedek (Genesis 14:18-20). It is time for the Body of Christ – the TRUE Church to arise and be silent NO more!

The number 24 is written approximately 24 times in the Bible, depending on which translation we read. Many of these occur in the Book of Revelation. The number 24 is said to represent the Church because it is the sum of the 12 Tribes of Israel plus the12 Apostles. We read in the Bible that God's Heavenly Throne has seated before it 24 Elders. Each of these spiritual Elders wears a CROWN and sits on a Throne. Their likely tasks are to assist God in governing the Universe. Each of the 4 times that they are mentioned in Revelation they are shown falling to their knees worshipping God. And when He (Yeshua - Jesus Christ symbolized by a slain Lamb) took the book, the 4 living creatures and the 24 Elders fell down before the Lamb, each having harps and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints (Revelation 4:4, 10; 5:8; 11:16; 19:4).

So, what lies behind the DOOR of 2024 for the Church?

2,000 years ago, after the Apostle Paul's first evangelistic journey, "they began to report all things that God had done with them and how He had opened a door of faith to the Gentiles" - Acts 14:27. Did you see that? A "door was opened to the Gentiles? The Times of the Gentiles had begun ….BUT it is coming to the very end and the same DOOR will soon close as we come to the end and FULLNESS of the Gentiles! We also believe wholeheartedly that 2024/5784 is going to be a VERY difficult year and so as believers we must be prepared! What first happens in Israel will come upon the Nations! 2023 has been a very difficult year and it is going to flow over into 2024! But our God is still on the Throne!

The next 7-Years beginning in 2024-2030 is where the Lord is calling the Church back to her FIRST love and to sound the alarm for believers to be ready, "trim their lamps" - Mathew 25:1-13 …and be prepared for the FINAL End-time Days ahead! We are warned in the "the Parable of the 10 Virgins" that ONLY 5 were WISE and were able to attend the Marriage Supper of the Lamb as they were NOT caught off-guard and unprepared like the 5 FOOLISH virgins were and so the DOOR was shut to them! This Parable represents members of the Body of Christ  the Church; the OIL the Holy Spirit and the Bridegroom represents Christ.

Another time when the DOORS were shut was during the time of NOAH when the FLOOD came and God Himself shut the DOOR (Genesis 6:13-16) and only Noah and his family of 8 were saved! Just one door? YES! This one door is the only door through which any humans or any animals could enter into the Ark built according to God’s plan. Only 8 people? YES! An entire lost world was destroyed as God destroyed EVIL and could NOT allow it to continue as mankind in the Ancient World had tampered with DNA – God’s Creation! God had to start over! Yeshua (Jesus Christ) is the ONLY door to Heaven so we read in; John 10:9 the "I am" statement, where our Lord colourfully points out for ALL of us the exclusive nature of Salvation by saying that He is "THE door," not "a door! If we miss this DOOR then we've really been (excuse the pun) "zapped." John looked and saw "a DOOR standing open in Heaven" (Revelation 4:1). We need to always be Spiritually looking for this door. Yeshua – Jesus Christ is the door. But we won't be able to enter unless we hear, "Well done, good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your master" - Matthew 25:2 1.

It also represents the fact that Israel is back in her land just as God promised to bring them back in unbelief and when the "Times of the Gentiles" are fulfilled God promised to give them "a NEW heart" (Ezekiel 36:26; Jeremiah 31:33; Hebrews 8:10) In the meantime there are a remnant of Jewish Messianic Believers in Yeshua and the Congregations across Israel are growing in size. The enemy is stirring up a storm right now in the earth and if we are NOT FULL of OIL (anointing OIL from Holy Spirit) keeping our LAMPS trimmed and  burning, we will be taken out by the enemy! Satan is using Islamic Nations and their Liberal proxy allies to attack Israel and most certainly the Church WILL be next on their list!

Look at history, and even as recent as 07th October, 2023 attacks against Israel we saw the savagery mankind is capable of. We must realize that humanity is degenerating! The LAST Day, End-time Gentile Empires, described in Daniel 2 and Daniel 7 being far more brutal, savage, and uncivilized than the first. Mankind is NOT evolving and getting better and better …and, in fact it’s getting worse and worse. Look at the destruction mankind wreaked in both World Wars …and then think of the horrific destruction Prophesied to come in the near future. This is the complete opposite of getting better and better! YES, this is terrifying news. Luke warns us that it will be a time of; "Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken" - Luke 21:26. However, notice the very next verse; "And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory" - Luke 21: 27. These times of the Gentiles lead directly to the return of Christ! He will finally put down the beast-like rulers so they are NO longer able to tear apart mankind! The DOORs closing for the wicked as TIME is running out! Now, that’s good news!

How is the number 24 related to Christ’s RULE? Psalm 72 lists 24 things that Yeshua (Jesus Christ), as "High Priest" after the order of Melchizedek, WILL do when He sits upon His Throne and Rules as King and Priest during the Millenium. Christ will rightly JUDGE the people; He will judge, with justice, the poor and needy; PEACE will be brought by the mountains; Small hills shall also experience peace; He will judge the poor; He shall SAVE the children of the needy; those who OPPRESS shall be crushed; He shall Rule like RAIN upon grass; He shall Rule like the WATER that showers the globe; He will cause the righteous to FLOURISH; He will bring the righteous an ABUNDANCE of PEACE; He shall Rule from SEA to SEA; He shall Rule from the RIVER until the ends of the earth. The whole EARTH filled with His GLORY! Psalm 72:7-8.

When He hears the needy cry out He will DELIVER him; the poor and those who have NO help will also be delivered; those who are needy and weak will receive COMPASSION; the lives of those in need shall be saved; the needy who are OPPRESSED and experience VIOLENCE will be redeemed; the blood of those in need will be PRECIOUS in His sight; He will cause an abundance of grain upon the earth; He will bring an abundance of fruit; He will make those of the City (New Jerusalem) flourish like grass; He will make His NAME to be continued; He will bless ALL men! What amazing promises from God in  Psalm 72 for the righteous believers! ALL the kings shall fall down before Him and ALL Nations WILL serve Him and call Him BLESSED! Halleluyah!

Acts 1:11 makes it clear that Yeshua (Jesus) himself will one day soon  return to the earth. It will be "this same Jesus" who is coming again. Twice in one verse Luke uses the word "same" to tell us something crucial about the Second Coming. The same Jesus who left will one day return the same way that he left! Those words teach us that Christ is coming back personally, literally, visibly, and bodily. His coming WILL be sudden and unexpected. Luke 24:50-52 informs us that as Yeshua (Jesus) reached out His hands to bless His Disciples, He began to rise from the face of the earth … without any warning whatsoever! We can assume that His return to the earth will be NO less astonishing NOR surprising. This is truly an astounding thought! The same Yeshua – Jesus Christ who was; born in Bethlehem, grew up in Nazareth, turned water into wine, walked on water, raised Lazarus, entered Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, and wept over Jerusalem, was betrayed by Judas, and was whipped, beaten, scourged, mocked, and then condemned to die on Mount Calvary, rose from the dead-on Passover morning and ascended into Heaven is coming again. BE READY!

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,
