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.'

Time is certainly flying by these days. I can't believe it's been over two weeks since my last posting! The tension is certainly in the air these days isn't it? With all the talk of going to war with Iran, the US economy taking a dive, ongoing trouble in Yisra'el with everyone wanting to carve up what little land there is. If you take a look at the Scriptures regarding what land Yahweh promised to Abraham, you'd be surprised to learn just how big that promise of real estate really is! Here's a map that depicts the "Royal Grant". It's humongous, compared to the little sliver of land they're holding onto now. This promise will be fulfilled as Yahweh's promises always are.

You know that there's not too much prophecy overall left to be fufilled in Scripture. It's getting down to what happens at the "end of days" or "in that day". The way I really like to think of it mostly though is "The Day of Yahweh".

I'm sure you've heard this reference to sunday worship preached before regarding Revelation 1:10 as it's stated in the King James and other versions:

Revelation 1:10 KJVR I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,

And from ISR's The Scriptures version:

Revelation 1:10 The Scriptures '98 (10) I came to be in the Spirit on the Day of Yahweh, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet,

This is referring to the end times, the last 7 years, not about Yahochanan (John) having this vision on sunday, as many have been led to believe. When I learned this, it just confirmed again to me what's written in Yirmeyahu as an end time prophecy:

Jeremiah 16:19 O Yahweh, my strength and my stronghold and my refuge, in the day of distress the gentiles shall come to You from the ends of the earth and say, “Our fathers have inherited only falsehood, futility, and there is no value in them.

Now I've written previously about all the pagan feasts that we have given up, and at the same time we started finding out about the Feasts of Yahweh. Many refer to them as the Jewish feast days, but remember these aren't from the tribe of Yahudah (Judah), these are all from Yahweh, which He commanded us to keep in Wayyiqra (Leviticus) chapter 23. Please take the time to read for yourself what Yahweh said regarding the keeping of these Feasts of His.

Wayyiqra(Leviticus)23:1-44 And Yahweh spoke to Mosheh, saying, (2) “Speak to the children of Yisra’el, and say to them, ‘The appointed times of Yahweh, which you are to proclaim as set-apart gatherings, My appointed times, are these: (3) ‘Six days work is done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of rest, a set-apart gathering. You do no work, it is a Sabbath to Yahweh in all your dwellings. (4) ‘These are the appointed times of Yahweh, set-apart gatherings which you are to proclaim at their appointed times. (5) ‘In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, between the evenings, is the Passover to Yahweh. (6) ‘And on the fifteenth day of this month is the Festival of Unleavened Bread to Yahweh – seven days you eat unleavened bread. (7) ‘On the first day you have a set-apart gathering, you do no servile work. (8) ‘And you shall bring an offering made by fire to Yahweh for seven days. On the seventh day is a set-apart gathering, you do no servile work.’ ” (9) And Yahweh spoke to Mosheh, saying, (10) “Speak to the children of Yisra’el, and you shall say to them, ‘When you come into the land which I give you, and shall reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the first-fruits of your harvest to the priest. (11) ‘And he shall wave the sheaf before Yahweh, for your acceptance. On the morrow after the Sabbath the priest waves it. (12) ‘And on that day when you wave the sheaf, you shall prepare a male lamb a year old, a perfect one, as a burnt offering to Yahweh, (13) and its grain offering: two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil, an offering made by fire to Yahweh, a sweet fragrance, and its drink offering: one-fourth of a hin of wine. (14) ‘And you do not eat bread or roasted grain or fresh grain until the same day that you have brought an offering to your Elohim – a law forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. (15) ‘And from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, you shall count for yourselves: seven completed Sabbaths. (16) ‘Until the morrow after the seventh Sabbath you count fifty days, then you shall bring a new grain offering to Yahweh. (17) ‘Bring from your dwellings for a wave offering two loaves of bread, of two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour they are, baked with leaven, first-fruits to Yahweh. (18) ‘And besides the bread, you shall bring seven lambs a year old, perfect ones, and one young bull and two rams. They are a burnt offering to Yahweh, with their grain offering and their drink offerings, an offering made by fire for a sweet fragrance to Yahweh. (19) ‘And you shall offer one male goat as a sin offering, and two male lambs a year old, as a peace offering. (20) ‘And the priest shall wave them, besides the bread of the first-fruits, as a wave offering before Yahweh, besides the two lambs. They are set-apart to Yahweh for the priest. (21) ‘And on this same day you shall proclaim a set-apart gathering for yourselves, you do no servile work on it – a law forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations. (22) ‘And when you reap the harvest of your land do not completely reap the corners of your field when you reap, and do not gather any gleaning from your harvest. Leave them for the poor and for the stranger. I am Yahweh your Elohim.’ ” (23) And Yahweh spoke to Mosheh, saying, (24) “Speak to the children of Yisra’el, saying, ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you have a rest, a remembrance of blowing of trumpets, a set-apart gathering. (25) ‘You do no servile work, and you shall bring an offering made by fire to Yahweh.’ ” (26) And Yahweh spoke to Mosheh, saying, (27) “On the tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. It shall be a set-apart gathering for you. And you shall afflict your beings, and shall bring an offering made by fire to Yahweh. (28) “And you do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before Yahweh your Elohim. (29) “For any being who is not afflicted on that same day, he shall be cut off from his people. (30) “And any being who does any work on that same day, that being I shall destroy from the midst of his people. (31) “You do no work – a law forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. (32) ‘It is a Sabbath of rest to you, and you shall afflict your beings. On the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you observe your Sabbath.” (33) And Yahweh spoke to Mosheh, saying, (34) “Speak to the children of Yisra’el, saying, ‘On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the Festival of Booths for seven days to Yahweh. (35) ‘On the first day is a set-apart gathering, you do no servile work. (36) ‘For seven days you bring an offering made by fire to Yahweh. On the eighth day there shall be a set-apart gathering for you, and you shall bring an offering made by fire to Yahweh. It is a closing festival, you do no servile work. (37) ‘These are the appointed times of Yahweh which you proclaim as set-apart gatherings, to bring an offering made by fire to Yahweh, a burnt offering and a grain offering, a slaughtering and drink offerings, as commanded for every day – (38) besides the Sabbaths of Yahweh, and besides your gifts, and besides all your vows, and besides all your voluntary offerings which you give to Yahweh. (39) ‘On the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you gather in the fruit of the land, observe the festival of Yahweh for seven days. On the first day is a rest, and on the eighth day a rest. (40) ‘And you shall take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of good trees, branches of palm trees, twigs of leafy trees, and willows of the stream, and shall rejoice before Yahweh your Elohim for seven days. (41) ‘And you shall observe it as a festival to Yahweh for seven days in the year – a law forever in your generations. Observe it in the seventh month. (42) ‘Dwell in booths for seven days; all who are native Yisra’elites dwell in booths, (43) so that your generations know that I made the children of Yisra’el dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Mitsrayim. I am Yahweh your Elohim.’ ” (44) Thus did Mosheh speak of the appointed times of Yahweh to the children of Yisra’el.

Alright getting back to the Feasts of Yahweh, there are seven of them. Here they are:

We heard Michael Rood give quite a good teaching on how Yahshua HaMoshiach fulfilled all the Spring Feasts of Yahweh, and that He will fulfill the Fall Feasts in the future upon His return. It's truly an amazing picture story. I would highly suggest getting these teachings. We have watched it at least 7 times, along with seeing his live presentation on both of these as well. You can go to his website and order the DVD series called:

Now each of these Feasts have their own significance, along with the time of year that they are fulfilled. Briefly is a list of the Feasts and what they pertain to based on the time of year:

We have been keeping these Feasts of Yahweh to the best of our ability, as we are not in the land of Yisra'el yet! They all have their special meanings. The one we look forward to the most is Sukkot. This is where we get together as a community and people from all over come and join us for a time of getting away by camping in whatever we have, whether tents, trailers, yurts, etc. We spent ten days together on the Oregon coast at Cape Lookout.

Some people we met at Sukkot drove about 1,000 miles from Canada last year, and they're very special people to us now. If you'd like to meet them, look at my "Linkages" at the top left, or click here: Dan & Prissy's Blog. Many others came from California, Idaho. Most of us were from Oregon and Washington. This really is an awesome time for all of us coming together as a community to worship Yahweh and party! Yes it's okay to have fun! I encourage you to learn about each of these Feasts of Yahweh.

You have your homework assignment and that's to get to know these Feasts real well, and to start rehearsing them at their appointed times. This is where it all starts, and if you don't know where to start, how are you going to know how it all finishes? Case in point: Yahshua HaMoshiach comes riding in on the colt into Yerushalayim:

Matthew 21:7-9 they brought the donkey and the colt, and laid their garments on them, and He sat on them. (8) And most of the crowd spread their garments on the way, while others cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the way. (9) And the crowds who went before and those who followed cried out, saying, “Hoshia-na to the Son of Dawid! Blessed is He who is coming in the Name of Yahweh! Hoshia-na in the highest!”

Now how did they know on that day to gather together in a certain place, lay down either garments or palm branches in the way? It's because they had been doing this for centuries as a rehearsal for this very day when the Messiah was going to come in as the Lamb to be slain. They were at the right place at the right time because they rehearsed this as Yahweh told them to! That's why we are to do the same, because there are awesome things that are going to happen on these Feast Days of Yahweh, and you don't want to miss it for the world, literally!

Next time as I've been alluding to, I'll share with you some of what we're facing right now in our very day and time. Also start learning and getting prepared for Pesach, so you can start off Yahweh's New Year!

May Yahweh Bless You And Guard You,
