I woke up to Fox News this morning and saw where Mr. Sharon has died. We must send prayers to his family and hope that during his illness, that Jesus Christ Himself came to him and allowed Mr. Sharon to accept Him as the Savior and Messiah to all Jews and as his personal Savior. Pray that Ariel Sharon, in his spirit as he was in a coma, was able to see our Precious Lord and accept Him prior to his death.
What does this mean though, for us? Well, I tend to believe Rabbi Kaduri who prior to his death at the age of 108 in 2006, told his family that he had seen the Messiah and gave his son a letter than was to be opened one year after his death. As we all now know, Rabbi Kaduri stated in his letter that Jesus Christ is indeed in fact The Messiah and would return or come after the death of Ariel Sharon.
What I did not know is that Rabbi Kaduri prophecies’ (more than one) were made, recorded and came to pass prior to this specific one. When he spoke, Israel listened. Below, I’ve copied some interesting information from different Israeli news sources and articles:
In a lecture given yesterday (Tuesday 9/13/05) the elder Kabbalist Rabbi Yitzchak Kaduri, called on world Jewry to come to Israel because of natural disasters that will take place in the near future. In the announcement Rav Kaduri says:
“I hereby find that it is necessary to pass this call to the ears of world Jewry, that they should come to the Land of Israel for the reason of the great dangers awaiting the world from the side of nature.
“In the future the Holy One, blessed be He, will bring great disasters in the countries of the world in order to sweeten the judgements of the Land of Israel.
“I instruct that this warning announcement be distributed in order that the Jews in the countries around the world be will know the real danger and will come to the Land of Israel, to the building of the Bais Hamikdash and to the revelation of Moshiach.”
The words of Rav Kaduri, which were first made public on the show “Matchilim MiBereishit” on Arutz-7, were said in a kabbalah lecture which the elder kabbalist gave to his students between afternoon and evening prayers.
The Rav also revealed that the initials (rashei teivot) of the coming Hebrew year 5766 are “it will be a year of secret and revelation” (“tehiyeh shnat sod v’gilui”).
Rav Kaduri had his announcement brought to the Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, via a special intermediary before the Prime Minister departed for the United States and he requested of him to call to Jews to come to Israel.
You might remember that Rav Kaduri, shlita, also foresaw the tsunami two weeks before it happened:
Disaster, Redemption and the Tsunami
17:46 Dec 30, ’04 / 18 Tevet 5765
At least one Kabbalist sage predicted “natural calamities” over two weeks ago. He and others call for an increase in acts of kindness, as they try to place the events in universal context.
The venerated Rabbi Yitzchak Kaduri, considered Israel’s leading Kabbalist rabbi, was quoted in the Yediot Acharonot newspaper on Dec. 12 as saying:
“We are now in the fourth year of what could be the seven-year Redemption period, according to the calculation of the Vilna Gaon. [However.] in the coming three years, uncertainty about the future will hang over our heads, unless we work and strive that the Messiah be revealed. The Messiah is already [here] in Israel. Whatever people are sure will not happen, is liable to happen, and whatever we are certain will happen may disappoint us. But in the end, there will be peace throughout the world. The world is mitmatek mehadinim (lit., becoming sweet from/of strict justice), great tragedies in the world are foreseen, that’s the thing of the Jews going to the East. [emphasis added] But our enemies will not prevail over us in the Land of Israel, ‘fear and trembling will fall upon them,’ in the [merit of the] power of Torah.”
Rabbi Kaduri said this week, “What can save the world from calamities is real repentance by Jews, who must increase acts of kindness towards one another… The cry of the many poor in Israel and the expulsion of Jews from their homes shakes the world… It’s not for naught that this place was hit, where many of our compatriots went to look for this-worldly lusts.”
Rabbi Kaduri has told his students that the current government will be the last one of the “old era,” and that the new government will already have leadership of the Messianic era.
Another sage, Rabbi Chaim Kanevsky of Bnei Brak, was quoted in Yediot in the same article as saying that we are verily in the period of the beginning of the Redemption period, and that the Messiah could be revealed at any moment. He called for further outreach “in order to prevent calamities and to bring mercy from the Creator. All Jews must come to the Land of Israel.” The Rabbi also called to establish Torah schools in every area, and that “Torah study will prevent calamities – from earthquakes to other natural disasters.”
The Kipa website, a Hebrew-language forum for religious youth, features a response by Rabbi Uziel Eliyahu, Chief Rabbi of the Misgav Regional Council in the Galilee regarding a Jewish approach to the calamitous events. “First of all,” Rabbi Eliyahu wrote, “we should pray and ask G-d to remove His wrath from the word, send a complete recovery to the injured, and help and protect everyone in the world, causing sorrow to depart.”
Rabbi Eliyahu added that what is happening now was decreed on Rosh HaShanah [the Jewish New Year]: “It was a Divine decree that was issued regarding ‘who will be killed by water, and who by fire…'” Our job now, he wrote, is to “pray to G-d, to try harder in studying Torah and fulfilling the Torah and doing acts of kindness and charity. This is an hour of reckoning for the entire world!!!”
Rabbi Eliyahu emphasized that G-d has complete control of nature, and that the Jewish People live “amidst great faith, despite questions that remain open. No question mark can break our strength of great and perfect faith in G-d… This does not prevent us from asking and searching for answers and [logical] explanations, but it all takes place on the solid ground of great faith in G-d… The Bible (Zechariah 14) mentions that in the future, when the Messiah comes, the Mt. of Olives will be split in two… The Messiah can come at any minute, even as you read these lines…”
Again, what does this mean? It means that JESUS IS COMING – that we are definitely in “The Season” of His Return and that again, we are just waiting. Keep your Heavenly Armor on; keep it polished, repaired and continually updated with all the Heavenly Tools the Lord has been releasing to His Children for He wants us to be prepared! So, prepared we will be!!! I have to say, I was in the kitchen this morning, waiting for my coffee to brew – dancing all around and doing my “Jesus Is Coming Dance”! Oh yes, I have a Jesus dance that I do when that overwhelming feeling comes upon my Spirit and I was dancing it today! So, do you have a “Jesus Dance”? If you do…start dancing it now!
