    According to my research, April was the original first month in the Julian calendar. Hence April fools. However doing simple math in my head I backed up the first month of the year March. Which would make June the fourth month. Guess what June is now guys! Gay pride month and I would not be surprised if satan did this on purpose to mock the fourth month feast of Yahuah

    Mark Diffin I agree. This will only occur when they recognize the Lord Jesus as their Savior prophesied in later chapters of Zechariah.

    Dear Irene123 - clearly v23 has not yet come about. Look at verse 19 - it says that the 4 fast days shall turn into days of joy. The Jewish people are still keeping these days as days of mourning as they have for the last 2000 years. So just as v19 has not yet come about, so too v23 has not yet happened. This is clear and unrefutable. See also Jeremiah 16:19

    V. 23 - After the church age begins, Acts 2:38, the Jewish apostles and disciples went to the Gentiles and the Gentiles 'went' to the Jews (accepted the Jews testimony of Jesus). The believing Jews and Gentiles were the Christians at that time - the Jews 'n Gentiles were first called' Christians' at Antioch.

    Zechariah was zealous to build God's house of pure worship.
