Famous Rabbi Predicted Jesus Will Return After Sharon's Death
Pew Research has reported that nearly half of American Christians believe that the second coming of Christ will occur in the next 40 years. This view appears to be shared by a most unusual source.
In 2006, the then 108 year old rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri, a well known Mizrahi Haredi rabbi and Torah scholar in Israel, claimed to have been visited by the Messiah. He said he would write down the name of the Messiah and that his followers would reveal it one year after his death. He died on January 28, 2006. A quarter-million people marched in his Jerusalem funeral procession.
The note was opened a year after his death. It read, "ירים העם ויוכיח שדברו ותורתו עומדים" meaning "he will raise the people and confirm that his word and law are standing." Much to his followers' surprise there is a Hebrew acronym in this phrase - YEHOSHUA, which we know in it's Greek form as Jesus.
Kaduri claimed that the Messiah would not return until after the death of former Israel Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, who died Saturday, January 11, 2014.
Hmmm . . .
