2017 Daniel Fast: Awakening Days 19, 20, & 21
Journal Writing Reflections: “We see idol worship as detestable to God throughout our study. How can we make sure we do not practice idolatry? Describe the awakening in Zechariah 12.”
“Discuss the 1/3 of the people who will be the remnant of God. They obeyed God no matter what. Why is our obedience now a matter of life and death? Are you in the 1/3?”
“Discuss the reign of the Messiah. How does this Jerusalem in Zechariah Ch. 14 resemble the New Jerusalem in Revelation 21?”

We are ending the final three days of our fasting study looking at Zechariah’s prophecies and a flash forward to John’s end times prophecy in Revelation 21. When all the nations (some say this is the final battle on the earth, Armageddon) come against Judah and Jerusalem, God will make Jerusalem an immovable rock and He will keep watch over Judah. Judah will consume all their enemies. The the house of David will mourn for Jesus Christ. It will be a day of awakening when they clearly see the Messiah for who He is. They will grieve bitterly because they will finally see. False prophets will be punished and afraid to proclaim their ministry because of all their lies and deception. God hates idolatry and He puts and end to it. God will strike down 2/3 in the whole land (the world, earth). If you calculated 2/3 of the entire world’s population and the remaining 1/3; thsoe are frightening numbers. Only God’s people will escape the wrath of God (1/3). Finally, the Lord’s day is coming.Jesus says there will be a great split and His people will flee. Then the Lord will come and all the holy ones. On that day, there won’t be any more sunlight, cold, or darkness – no more distinction between day and night. The people who came against Israel (Jerusalem) will have rotting flesh, eye sockets, and tongues. There will be a great panic. Revelation 21:6-8 “He said to me: ‘It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children. But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.’”
The end of this fast is an opportunity to reflect on the entire fast but also on how your life should be transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit operating in you. There are some things you will never do again by the power of the Holy Spirit. You sacrificed and stayed away from sinful habits for 21 days. To return to those things would be rebellion. There are ways that you will never treat the people of God again. Prejudices and racist spirits have already been commanded to leave in Jesus’s name. Some of us haven’t been able to receive a Word or the truth from certain prophets because of the color of their skin.
I’m declaring and decreeing that those hidden and subconscious prejudices and even hate come to the surface so we can rebuke it and be delivered in Jesus’s name. Your eyes are awakened to the synagogue of Satan and you now know the real Israel from the counterfeit. Your eyes have been awakened to the spirit of oppression, psychological warfare, whitewashing, and covering the truth (Exodus 1 & Deuteronomy 28). How can a movie be written and produced about a group of Hebrew women who computed all the Mathematical hidden figures for NASA and the world never knew about it? We are awakened to the deception and lies of Satan. You know of a great awakening to come during which God’s chosen people will have the scales to fall off their eyes and wake up to who we really are (Ezekiel 37 & 38). You know that there will be a convergence of the Jew (Hebrew Israelite) and the Gentiles when the time of the Gentiles is fulfilled (Ephesians 2, Romans 11). We have even been awakened about who we are as individuals in the five-fold ministry. As a result of of the awakening in us, we will preach and prophesy the truth God revealed or be held accountable for not speaking the truth. January 21, 2017 at 6:00 will complete the 3rd (holy number) cycle of 7 (number for completion and perfection). God bless and prosper you always in Jesus’s name. I love you.
