Ariel Sharon, the Rabbi & the Messiah

The latest "prophecy craze" has hit immediately after Ariel Sharon's passing away. It involves a Rabbi, a Note and the Messiah. According to this Rabbi (since deceased), the Messiah will appear after Sharon's death. Moreover, he identified the Messiah's name as Yehoshua (Yeshua). You can read about it HERE

But please take note of Yitzhak Kaduri's comments regarding this alleged Messiah:

“It is hard for many good people in the society to understand the person of the Messiah. The leadership and order of a Messiah of flesh and blood is hard to accept for many in the nation. As leader, the Messiah will not hold any office, but will be among the people and use the media to communicate. His reign will be pure and without personal or political desire. During his dominion, only righteousness and truth will reign.

“Will all believe in the Messiah right away? No, in the beginning some of us will believe in him and some not. It will be easier for non-religious people to follow the Messiah than for Orthodox people.

“The revelation of the Messiah will be fulfilled in two stages: First, he will actively confirm his position as Messiah without knowing himself that he is the Messiah. Then he will reveal himself to some Jews, not necessarily to wise Torah scholars. It can be even simple people. Only then he will reveal himself to the whole nation. The people will wonder and say: ‘What, that’s the Messiah?’ Many have known his name but have not believed that he is the Messiah.”

This is not the biblical Messiah.

Sadly, WorldNetDaily is peddling these dangerous Kaduri materials by Carl Gallups. Worse still they are being acclaimed as a "must-read for anyone who takes God seriously" by a well known prophecy teacher!

What about taking the Bible seriously?

Thanks for dropping by, William.

I'm a little mortified that the chase for the big dollar will give this Rabbi exposure.

God bless,

Alf

Hi Alf,

For a lot of people it’s probably a combination of well meaning naivety, laziness and real expectant hunger for Yeshua’s return. I must admit it sounded like a good story to me and I am typically skeptical by nature. It’s one of those stories (at least superficially) that has all the right elements. A good example of how important it is for us to hold each other accountable as Bereans.

Warm Regards,
WS
