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.'

Know The End From The Beginning

Isaiah 46:9-10 The Scriptures '98 “Remember the former events of old, for I am El, and there is no one else – Elohim, and there is no one like Me, (10) declaring the end from the beginning, and from of old that which has not yet been done, saying, ‘My counsel does stand, and all My delight I do,’

Throughout many generations people have been claiming that the end is near. Now each day that goes by does make it that much closer, however, when will be the signs of this time, what are the "End Times" called in the Scriptures, and what will occur, and where, and to whom, and are there things surfacing in that day that haven't before?

In order to understand what I'm addressing here, it's important for you to understand the terms in which I'm using:

My Terms - Previously Called

Yahweh - the LORD,the L-rd

Yahshua The Messiah - Jesus Christ

(Yahshua HaMoshiach)

El or Elohim - God, G-d, GOD

Master - Lord

Scripture - Bible

TaNaK - Old Testament

Renewed Covenant - New Testament

The next thing I want to point out is origin. Finding out where something comes from allows us to go back and check the validity of what we're relying on. In this case I'm referring to Scripture. So I rely on getting information from the Hebrew for the TaNaK, and for the Renewed Covenant I use a couple of sources such as ISR's "The Scriptures", and the Peshitta (Aramaic version of the Renewed Covenant) and other sources, such as Eddie Chumney's book: "RESTORING THE TWO HOUSES OF ISRAEL" (RTTHOI).

At times I do take the liberty in changing some words to reflect the original words or names, and so please understand as in the following paragraphs taken from Eddie Chumney's book, I have made some slight changes. I believe in not having to re-invent the wheel, but also in giving credit where it's due.

"The Day of Yahweh" is the end times and the beginning of the Messianic Age:

"The day of Yahweh is a major theme in Scripture especially in the writings of the prophets. The subject of the day of Yahweh in the writings of the prophets mostly concerns the advent of the coming of the Messiah (HaMashiach), the judgment of the nations, the tribulation period (Chevlai shel Mashiach/Ya’acov’s trouble) and the Messianic age (Athid Lavo). Because the Sabbath (Shabbat) is called the day of Yahweh (Isaiah [Yeshayahu] 58:13-14), it is therefore a foreshadowing of the Messianic Age (Athid Lavo)." (RTTHOI)

What Are The "End Times" Called In The Scriptures?

"There are many titles for "The day of Yahweh". Some of these titles will indicate a time of trial, trouble, tribulation and darkness (EVENING = a time of darkness) while other titles will indicate a time of peace and tranquility (MORNING = a time of light)." (RTTHOI)

"In That Day" is a Hebrew idiom for "The Day of Yahweh"

"The day of Yahweh is often referred to in the writings of the prophets with the shortened code form of "in that day." Actually, in that day is a Hebrew idiom for the day of Yahweh. In fact, a major subject and theme of the book of Isaiah (Yeshayahu) are the events that will be taking place during the time period known as the day of Yahweh. In his writings, the prophet Isaiah (Yeshayahu) most often uses the term "in that day" to refer to the day of Yahweh. The term "in that day" can be found in the following verses (Isaiah [Yeshayahu] 2:11, 17, 20, 3:7, 18, 4:1-2, 5:30, 7:18, 21, 23, 10:20, 27, 11:10-11, 16, 12:1, 4, 17:4, 9, 19:16, 18-19, 21, 23-24, 20:6, 22:8, 12, 20, 25, 23:15, 24:21, 25:9, 26:1, 27:1-2, 12-13, 28:5, 29:18, 30:23, 25-26, 31:7, 52:6)." (RTTHOI)

"At That Time" is a Hebrew idiom for "The Day of Yahweh"

"There is another Hebrew idiom which refers to the day of Yahweh. The phrase "at that time" is another code word (Hebrew idiom) for the day of Yahweh. The term, "at that time" can be found in the following verses (Isaiah [Yeshayahu] 18:7, Jeremiah [Yirmeyahu] 3:17, 4:11, 8:1, 31:1, 50:4, 20, Daniel 12:1, Joel (Yo’el) 3:1, Zephaniah 1:12, 3:20)." (RTTHOI)

You may recognize this verse:

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

It's been preached that this refers to Sunday, but in fact it doesn't, this refers to the end times. On first pass I found 29 verses stating this phrase "The Day of Yahweh":

Isaiah 2:12; Isaiah 13:6; Isaiah 13:9; Isaiah 34:8; Jeremiah 46:10; Lamentations 2:22; Ezekiel 13:5; Ezekiel 30:3; Joel 1:15; Joel 2:1; Joel 2:11; Joel 2:31; Joel 3:14; Amos 5:18; Amos 5:20; Obadiah 1:15; Zephaniah 1:7; Zephaniah 1:8; Zephaniah 1:14; Zephaniah 1:18; Zephaniah 2:2; Zephaniah 2:3; Zechariah 14:1; Malachi 4:5; Acts 2:20; 1 Corinthians 5:5; 2 Corinthians 1:14; 1 Thessalonians 5:2; 2 Peter 3:10

There are many more verses yet that refer to this stated in other ways, I will list a few verses here, but these references are by no means exhaustive:

1. The day of visitation (Isaiah 10:3) “What shall you do in the day of visitation, and in the ruin which comes from afar? To whom would you run for help? And where would you leave your wealth?

2. The wrath of Yahweh of hosts (Isaiah 13:13) “So I shall make the heavens tremble, and the earth shall shake from her place, in the wrath of Yahweh of hosts and in the day of the heat of His displeasure.

3. The day of grief and incurable pain (Isaiah 17:11) by day make your plant to grow, and in the morning make your seed to flourish – but the harvest is a heap in the day of grief and incurable pain.

4. The day of trouble or evil (Isaiah 22:5) For it is a day of uproar and treading down and perplexity by the Master Yahweh of hosts in the Valley of Vision – breaking down of a wall and of crying to the mountain.; (Jeremiah 51:2) And I shall send winnowers to Babel, who shall winnow her and empty her land. For they shall be against her all around, in the day of evil.

5. "The Great Day of Yahweh" and "The Day of Yahweh": (Zephaniah 1:14-15) Near is the great day of Yahweh, near and hurrying greatly, the noise of the day of Yahweh. Let the mighty man then bitterly cry out! (15) That day is a day of wrath, a day of distress and trouble, a day of waste and ruin, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,

There are so many verses regarding "The Day of Yahweh" and most of them are found throughout the TaNaK. With all these prophecies which are yet to be fulfilled, how can anyone say that the TaNaK, (Old Testament) has been done away with? That everything in it has been fulfilled, that we are no more under the "law", and so forth. Frankly it doesn't take long to find out that this is ludicrous thinking and teaching.

I firmly believe each person who gives a darn about where they're going to spend eternity should check things out for themselves, and not just believe the party line that's been preached and rewritten wrongly either by mistake or sometimes on purpose for nearly the last 2 millennia. The first thing that I believe one needs to do is to set into your heart this one thing: Be a person who seeks the truth, and lives that truth no matter what the cost. To do less is to believe a lie and to live in delusion.

2nd Thessalonians 2:10-12 The Scriptures '98 (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 time is rapidly approaching, and even at our very door step now. There's so much to learn and so little time. You may identify with this blog site, as I've written about my last ten years when I first started questioning the validity of what was taught for so long. I could all of a sudden see the conflicts, but didn't know where to turn.

(International Sign of Confusion) I later found out many people across the world during this same time had the same thing happen to them! And then I found out why!

Whoa, man if you only knew! It's huge!!! It'll knock your socks off when you find out!!! And it's all there in Scripture waiting for you. It's been prophesied in the book of Daniel about the time of the end:

Daniel 12:4 The Scriptures '98 (4) “But you, Dani’el, hide the words, and seal the book until the time of the end. Many shall diligently search and knowledge shall increase.”

I give plenty of references and resources for you to do your own homework on these pages, so please come and spend some more time, and I promise you won't be disappointed. I suggest starting off with the beginning page and working up from there, as you'll most likely quickly identify what took me so long to go through. In The Beginning

People from 38 countries so far seem to be identifying with these pages I've written, and I hope you will too. It's time to find out what really happened, is really happening, and what's going to happen.

There's a joke I've told for many years, but it seems to be sadly true, and it goes something like this:

"There are 3 types of people in the world, 1) Those that make things happen, 2) Those that watch things happen, and 3) those that say................what happened?

Which one do I want to be? The first, and I hope you do too.

I hope this page has shed some light on establishing "that day" for you. Please again do your own homework and prove these things out. Next I'll be sharing what does "Know the End from the Beginning" hold for us.

May Yahweh Bless You and Guard You,
