Kaduri, was a renowned Mizrahi Haredi rabbi and kabbalist who devoted his
life to Torah study and prayer on behalf of the Jewish people. According to
his obituary in Maariv, before his death, Yitzhak Kaduri spoke of his expectations
of the Messiah’s advent. 5 months before his departure, he also claimed
to have met the Messiah.
Rabbi Yitzchak Kaduri, the old Jewish Rabbi, passed from this life in 2006 at the age of 113. This was the Jewish year of 5766. Before his passing he claimed that in a dream the Messiah of Israel had come to him and revealed Himself to him. He told the other Rabbis in Jerusalem and other parts of the world that he knew the Messiah personally for he had met Him in his dream, spoken with Him, and worshiped Him.
Rabbi Kaduri then said that he had left a letter to be opened after his death. This letter would reveal the name of the Messiah and other important information which the Messiah had given to him. The letter was left in the possession of his son, and if I remember correctly there was a designated time after his death when the letter was to be opened. Anyway, the letter was opened at the designated time and it was such a shock to the Rabbi’s son that he hesitated to reveal the contents of the letter, but finally did. In the letter the old Rabbi stated that the name of the Messiah of Israel was “Yeshua,” the One whom the Christians call “Jesus.” That revelation was such a shock to the Rabbis in Jerusalem and other parts of the world that it created an uproar among the Rabbis.
Remember that for 2,000 years the Rabbis of the Jewish people have lied about the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ [Matthew 28:11-15], refused to believe on Him, and have done everything they knew to do to discredit Him in the eyes of their own Jewish people. Remember also that the Lord God explicitly told the Jewish people centuries ago, “As for My people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O My people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths,” Isaiah 3:12.
Is it any wonder that there will be a great “mourning” in Israel and among the Jewish people when the “remnant” of Israel finally learn who their Messiah really is, a truth that these Rabbis have willfully and deliberately kept hidden from them for the past 2,000 years? Read it for yourself in Zechariah 12:10-14 and 13:6.
Our readers can surely imagine the shock that it was to these Jewish Rabbis when the most honored and respected Jewish Rabbi in the whole world up until his death, told them in his final letter that the name of the Jewish Messiah is “Yeshua,” the very One whom the Jewish Rabbis have lied about and denied for centuries.
As I read these reports about the old Rabbi, I not only rejoiced that this information had been made public, but I immediately recognized why it had been revealed at this particular time in history. Think about it! The “seed” has now been sown among the Jewish Rabbis which will result in 144,000 of them turning to Christ immediately after the beginning of the Tribulation as they hear “the gospel of the Kingdom” being proclaimed by God’s “two witnesses.” Glory to God! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Thank you Lord Jesus!
However, that is not all the old Rabbi revealed in his final letter to his people. He specifically related how he had asked the Messiah in his dream, “When will You return?” He stated that the Messiah told him that He would return in the month of Av in the Jewish year 5772. He would not give the old Rabbi the exact date, but told him to “tell the people!”
Wow! Glory to God! Folks, on the Jewish calendar, this year is the Jewish year of 5772. The Jewish year of 5772 began on Rosh HaShanah, the first day of the 7th month on the Jewish calendar in 2011. But then when does the month of Av begin? The month of Av is the fifth month in the Jewish year and it begins on July 19th – 20th of this present year of 2012, less than 30 days from right now. The 20th day of July is actually the first day of Av on the Jewish calendar.
The rapture is at hand, friends! Even so, come Lord Jesus!
