In the “very interesting” category comes this prophecy by the famous Jewish Rabbi, Yitzchak Kaduri.
It is said that the Lubavitcher Rebbe predicted that Rabbi Kaduri would bear witness to the coming of the Messiah. That got my attention, because quotes from the Lubavitcher Rebbe (Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson) comprise one of my favorite books, Bringing Heaven Down to Earth: 365 Meditations of the Rebbe.
During his final years on Earth, Rabbi Kaduri’s thoughts were centered on the coming of the One who would redeem Israel. The Rabbi passed on in January of 2006.
Rabbi Kaduri’s Prophecy
Before his death, though, he wrote down two hints about the Messiah (Mashiach). First, that Messiah would appear after the death of Ariel Sharon. Next, that the Messiah’s name is Yehoshua, Yeshua, Yahusha … you got it, the one that most English speaking moderns call Jesus.
Very interesting … AND 2006 is the same year Ariel Sharon was declared to be incapacitated: serious medical problems began in January, the very month Rabbi Kaduri died.
News Flash, January 28, 2013: An MRI brain scan has shown “significant brain activity” in Ariel Sharon. His medical crisis has now lasted for seven years. Is his condition about ready to change?
News Flash, January 1, 2014: Reports now say, Ariel Sharon is suffering kidney damage, and his condition has worsened.
News Flash, January 11, 2014: Ariel Sharon has passed from this world.
Could Rabbi Kaduri’s Prophecy be True?
Yes, there is big controversy over this–many claiming that it is all an invention of Christians, and others saying it is a sign that the end of the world as we know it is imminent.
Any way you cut it… the entire situation is both strange and interesting. I need to research more, before I can comment, but didn’t want to hold back on sharing the video below. By the way, I know nothing about the folks who are behind this film, but I do appreciate their making it available.
I’ll close with a snippet of this followup, from the Israel Today website…
Israel Today was given access to many of the rabbi’s manuscripts, written in his own hand for the exclusive use of his students. Most striking were the cross-like symbols painted by Kaduri all over the pages. In the Jewish tradition, one does not use crosses. In fact, even the use of a plus sign is discouraged because it might be mistaken for a cross.
But there they were, scribbled in the rabbi’s own hand. When we asked what those symbols meant, Rabbi David Kaduri said they were “signs of the angel.” Pressed further about the meaning of the “signs of the angel,” he said he had no idea. Rabbi David Kaduri went on to explain that only his father had had a spiritual relationship with God and had met the Messiah in his dreams …
Addendum: Thank you to Sarah for these two links — interviews with students of the Rabbi. I cannot vouch for the ministry, nor the authenticity of the films … but they sure look interesting. Thank you, Sarah!
Update, January 11, 2014: Ariel Sharon is dead.
