    Please explain the difference between these two expressions.
    Imagine:
    1)
    A person has a crash with their car and says:
    I need your help right now.
    You help the person one time (let's say for some minutes) and everything is okay.

    2)
    A person plans to build a new house, which would take years.
    Then s/he says:
    I need your help as of now.
    So your help is needed several times.
    It's similar to, "From now on I will need your help."

    I hope it was clear enough.

    P.S. Please check the quotation because I corrected some of your mistakes.

    Cheers!
