Nitzavim is the Hebrew word for ‘ones standing’ as the Israelites prepare to enter the Promised Land. They are the ‘ones left standing’ after the previous generation could not ‘stand’ due to their faithlessness. The Hebrew word for ‘stand’ is natzab and means ‘pillar’ or ‘garrison.’ The Israelites standing at the entrance to the Promised Land are the troops stationed to defend and guard the Land that Elohim will put in their possession.
Yeshua in His Father’s Feasts is a personal or group in-depth study that reveals the shadows and realities of the Messiah in the prophetic visions in the Feasts of the LORD.

The messenger of Yeshua states that those who ‘obey’ the words in this prophetic book will be ‘blessed.’ In Hebrew, the word for ‘obey’ is shamar or ‘guard’ and means to ‘watch, keep, and preserve.’ Those who guard, keep, and preserve the words in Revelation will be blessed. Whoever doesn’t guard, obey, and protect this prophecy –– by adding to or removing from –– will lose their share in the Etz Chayil and their home in the New Jerusalem.
The original command for palm branches is found in the ‘appointed times’ of Elohim. The Feast of Tabernacles was given as a mikrah or ‘rehearsal’ for this very future event. It included not only waving palm branches, but also fruit, willows, and myrtle. These branches were waved to the north, south, east and west to prophesy the days when there would be a gathering of peoples from all nations, who would come and worship the One on the Throne and the Lamb in Jerusalem.
