So what's this site all about?

This blog site is my story or walk for the last 10 years, being led like many for some unknown reason to some very deep seated truths regarding The WORD, which has been hidden for centuries, until now that is.

To get the full story, please start with "In The Beginning". You can quickly navigate using Postings By Order on the left, or at bottom by clicking on Newer and Older Posts. You may very well identify with what's written here, and I hope it blesses you.

I also want to share with you the reason for naming this blog "And Now Thus Said Yahweh". It's due to my searching one day for a name to start this blog, and I felt led to simply let the Scriptures fall open to a page, and my finger fall on a verse. When I looked down it was verse 36 stating Yahweh speaking, which we know when He speaks, all of creation happens. In the following verses He says what is going to happen in our future, that He will bring back His people out of all the lands where we've been scattered and bring us back to "the land", Yisra'el. This is the reason why I'm sharing my witness to you, so you understand what's coming some day.

Yirmeyahu (Jeremiah) 32:36-41 The Scriptures '98 (36) "And now, thus said Yahweh, the Elohim of Yisra'ĕl, concerning this city of which you say, 'It shall be given into the hand of the sovereign of Babel by the sword, and by scarcity of food, and by pestilence': (37) 'See, I am gathering them out of all the lands where I have driven them in My displeasure, and in My wrath, and in great rage. And I shall bring them back to this place, and shall let them dwell in safety. (38) 'And they shall be My people, and I shall be their Elohim. (39) 'And I shall give them one heart and one way, to fear Me all the days, for the good of them and of their children after them. (40) 'And I shall make an everlasting covenant with them, that I do not turn back from doing good to them. And I shall put My fear in their hearts so as not to turn aside from Me. (41) 'And I shall rejoice over them to do good to them, and shall plant them in this land in truth, with all My heart and with all My being.'

2000 and Beyond

I hope you're ready to delve into a some more highly provocative issues today. What I'm about to share really shook things up quite a bit in my life. To begin with I had just gone through a very painful divorce through this time period. On the other hand Yahweh supplied my needs so I was never without. I saw His Hand in my life continually providing so much of what I needed, when I didn't have the foggiest idea of how it was all going to be taken care of, and that these times left me near speechless! It was like having my back up against the Sea of Reeds, with Pharaoh's army breathing down my neck and no where to turn!

Did you know that one of Yahweh's titles, being El Shaddai, actually means in Hebrew: Elohim is Sufficient! He's proved that to me over and over again. Okay, so getting on with things here, I went to go see Michael Rood in 2000 twice I believe. What he had to share rocked a lot of people's beliefs, and their traditions, and yes including mine.

Now before I go on, I think it's important for you to understand (if you don't already know this) what's known as the grieving process. There are similarities between the loss of a loved one and divorce here. Just think about it, if this whole religious system has been built on falsehoods and futilities, and like in my case, I've built my faith on it all, then I find out I need to divorce myself from it, it's going to be like something has died in me! Gasp! It is going to depend on each person, but you, as I, and many others will have to deal with it. This is a natural occurrence, so be aware of it, and pray unto Yahweh and Yahshua for His helping hand to carry you through all this.

The stages of grieving go something like this: Denial-this just cannot be! There's no way all this is a bunch of lies!; Anger-feelings of betrayal by friends, family, clergy, etc.,.. Who needs 'em!; Bargaining-"let's make a deal" with Yahweh, and keep on doing what I've been doing, He'll understand my heart...; Depression-what do I do now,... I'm losing everything; and finally Acceptance-you've come to terms with what isn't real, and open to learning what the truth is.

I felt it necessary to insert all this here, as I've seen everyone go through this to some degree, including myself. There's also those that "jump off the bandwagon" so to speak because they can't seem to handle it along the way. Maybe it's just going to take them longer, and yes it will take time, but don't delay if at all possible. There's a lot to learn and unlearn! I wish I could do a core dump here right now for you, with what little I've come to know, but alas, I can not. You really need to "throw caution to the wind" with the "curbing this for now until later" syndrome, and I'm going to tell you why.

First off, Yahweh holds you accountable for what you know, and not what you don't. That's simple enough. Now let's say Yahweh starts opening your eyes for you to learn some truth, but you decide, "oh that's no big deal, I don't have to do that". Or how about "I didn't see anything...hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm...". These are both dangerous mindsets, as the first one says to Yahweh, just like man has always said, "I want to be my own elohim!" What happened next? The fall of man right out of the garden! The second one is saying, "I just want to stay in ignorance a little while longer." The problem is, you aren't ignorant anymore, because you now know, so this is known as rebellion. Here in 1st Samuel 15:23 Yahweh let's us know what He thinks of this: "For rebellion is as the sin of divination, and stubbornness is as wickedness and idolatry..." Divination is nothing other than witchcraft! Ouch!

I have one more point for you to consider from 2nd Thessalonians 2:10-12 (10) and with all deceit of unrighteousness in those perishing, because they did not receive the love of the truth, in order for them to be saved. (11) And for this reason Elohim sends them a working of delusion, for them to believe the falsehood, (12) in order that all should be judged who did not believe the truth, but have delighted in the unrighteousness.

This is something to grasp a hold of, for there is a reason why we are all waking up to His Truth in our day and age. That information is forthcoming, and it's huge too! But suffice it to say, if we decide not to receive the love of the truth, He will in turn cause us to believe the lie, because we accepted not the love of the truth! A very dangerous place to go, so please take heed, and make that the very kernel or core of your essence. Think about it, we don't even know what it's all about yet, but we can feel Yahweh's pull on our very spirit by His Ruach HaKodesh (Set-Apart Spirit) drawing us in closer.

I was hoping to get into what Michael Rood had to share, and I'll get right into that next time, but all this needed to be said at some point, so contemplate on it, pray about it. What you've learned already about the Sabbath is huge! Be a person wanting to have Yahweh's own heart, like King David did. Get that firmly seated within you, because I guarantee you, the vastness of what you are coming into now, is unparalleled like anything you've come into before! This is all based on Scripture, for you to prove it out.

What I tell people is this, it's like stepping out onto a huge ocean beach, and each grain of sand is another truth, and surrounding each grain is yet many other grains, or truths. Then it spans across the whole beach, to the ocean, it's unfathomable! I have had this feeling for quite sometime now, and it's awesome. I'll tell you this, I've learned more in the last 3 years, than all the years prior years from 1978-2003, I kid you not. Again there's an exciting reason for it! Sorry to leave you hanging, but there's a whole lot more coming!

May Yahweh Bless You and Guard You,
